And organizers at the Loggerhead Marinelife Center also hope it will be a record year for sea turtle sculptures at The Gardens Mall, as Art Arribada returns. An arribadaŽ is a large gathering of sea turtles coming ashore together to nest at the same time and the same place. Students from six area high schools and one middle school have been busy paint-ing fiberglass sculptures of sea turtles that have been on display at PNC Bank branches before they will migrate on Aug. 19 to The Gardens Mall. At the mall, visi-tors can vote on favorites, then later bid to own a turtle of their own. Its a win-win situation for schools, which receive grant money through the project, students, who learn about ecology, and the Marinelife Center, which receives exposure for its programs, as well financial support to the tune of $25,000 or more. Art Arribada offers a wonderful intersection between art, education, conserva-tion and fundraising for the Loggerhead Marinelife Center,Ž said Jack Lighton, the Marinelife Centers president and CEO.

Such a sacrifice is widely embraced as virtuous by Americans (including me) and Western Europeans. Which makes me wonder what cultural imperatives exist to compel heroic suicide in other cultures, where the sacrifice is made to destroy rather than to save others. Muslim self-sacrificers form the prominent contemporary version of this phe-nomenon: suicide as heroic destruction, rather than suicide as heroic preservation. If such acts arent widely embraced by the Muslim world, they arent abhorred widely or publically enough, either, by that world. Their practitioners often seem to have a few things in common: They come from environments of need, insult or anger; theyve experienced education narr owly, as religion; and theyre relatively young. In the case of the terrorists who acted out their sacrifices on Sept. 11, 2001, most were in their 20s and most were from Saudi Arabia. But such acts have not been limited to them or their causes. I began thinking about this recently when a friend and mentor, Dr. Robert Hilliard, presented me with a gift that would be mine, he said, if I could lift it: a collection of more than 250 New York Times front pages. They date from 1851, when Millard Fillmore succeeded Zach Taylor as presi-dent, to 2012, when Barack Obama won his second term as president. The book weighs so much it has gravity, sucking in big questions the way the sun sucks in big asteroids. For example, what in the world do Zach Taylor, Millard Fill-more and Barack Obama have in common, anyway? Theres an answer, it turns out: Each has led a nation willing to accept heroic sui-cide as a worthy act for the preservation of somebody else, usually in war „ but never for the destruction of somebody else. Without Dr. Hilliards gift, this would not have occurred to me. I opened the book first to 1924, the year before he was born in Brooklyn, the son of a woman from Paris who believed deeply in education (not narr owly def ined), and a man from Russia who believed deeply in working seven days a week in the familys small shop to survive the Great Depression. The front-page headlines in the Great Gray Lady for Sunday, June 1, of that year included 13 stories: three about robbery, kidnapping or murder; three or four about the actions of President Calvin Coolidge; one about Robert Fighting BobŽ La Follete, the progressive Republican senator from Wisconsin who was trying to boost the wages of rail workers through federal leg-islation; one about a Catholic bishop found guilty of heresy by his peers; one about lobbyists seeking the French voteŽ (Dr. Hilliards mother, perhaps?) for New York state governor and presidential hopeful Al Smith, who promised to repeal prohibition and immigration laws, thus opening U.S. markets to French wine and food; and two about the Japanese and their disapproval of our trade policies and actions. One of those two headlines was this: Japanese Kills Himself Near Tokio Embas-sy; Hari-kiri Victim Assails Us, Asks Ven-geance.ŽA 40-something man had slit his abdomen crosswise and then upward in the classical wayŽ with a 6-inch dagger near the American embassy in Tokyo (spelled Tokio, then), leaving two letters behind, one to the American people and one to the Japanese empire, according to the Times report.To Americans he wrote, I request by my death the withdrawal of the Japanese exclusion clause because I greatly regret that your country, which has always advo-cated peace from a humanitarian viewpoint and has been known as a leader for peace throughout the world, enacted the Japanese exclusion clause in complete disregard of humanity. The indignation caused by this insult is impossible to overcomeƒŽ The exclusion clause prevented the liberty of entry, travel and residenceŽ for Japa-nese in the U.S. „ and thus it prevented robust trade, something wed guaranteed them in a gentlemens promiseŽ of 1911, the Japanese reportedly said. As self-sacrifices go, the mans suicide seems peaceful enough. But he left a sec-ond letter to his own people that called for his nation to rise to avenge the insult embodied in the action of America.Ž That sounds like suicide aimed at the destruction of others „ in this case indirectly. And given what happened 17 years later at Pearl Harbor and after, when almost 5,000 Japanese pilots sacrificed themselves as kamikazes, it hardly seems innocent. When I mentioned this briefly to Dr. Hilliard, who joined the Army at 18, in 1944, and was wounded several times fighting in and after the Battle of the Bulge, he had this to say: The two different kinds (motivations/ justications?) of suicide attest to the role of cultural education (brainwashing/propa-gandizing) in ones upbringing.Ž In other words, people will sometimes express their patriotism „ their heroism „ in self-sacrifices celebrated by their parents, aunts, uncles, teachers, friends or peers. And thats the reason Dr. Hilliard „ by career a playwright, novelist and professor emeritus from Emerson College in Boston but by nature and instinct a teacher who will never retire „ rarely attends events to honor veterans. Nor will he ever parade around in an old uniform with his medals. It tends to glorify war,Ž he concludes. It can become an aggrandizement for those who think patriotism should be worn on ones sleeve, a reinforcement for the types who may not have been in a war and pub-licly wish they had been, but if they know anything about war, privately are glad they werent.Ž So lets consider something new, with the 12th anniversary of 9/11 nearly upon us. Instead of martial action, perhaps the most heroic or patriotic sacrifice that any person of any culture might make in any era, is this: to put down war for good, by picking up peace forever.

GUEST OPINIONCelebrate Women’s Equality Day on Aug. 26 amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Ninety-three years ago, women did not have the right to vote. Today, women choose our nations leaders at every level of government. On Aug. 26 we cele-brate the legacy creat-ed by the fierce hope of American women nearly a century ago, who dreamed of an America where women would have a seat at the table. Aug. 26 marks the 1920 passage of wom-ens right to vote, but the fight for vot-ing and equal rights began long before. The first steps in the U.S. began at the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848. An earlier social visit had brought together Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Stanton, Mar-tha Wright, Mary Ann McClintock and Jane Hunt. New York had just passed the Married Womans Property Rights Act, a piece of legislation they saw as a significant sign of hope for womens rights. This hope and a strong commit-ment led them to draft the Declaration of Sentiments, a plea to end discrimination against women. With 300 men and women at the Seneca Falls Convention, they argued each right laid out in the declaration. The ninth right, womens right to vote, was questioned at the convention, but Frederick Douglass, the only African American present, argued that he could not accept the right to vote as a black man if women did not also accept the right. He claimed that the world would be a better place if women were involved in the political sphere. Exactly 100 of the 300 men and women at the convention agreed to sign their name to the cause. Those 100 men and women sparked a grassroots efforts giv-ing way to more conventions and move-ments around the country, adding fire to the cause and shifting the beliefs of policy makers. Ratification to the 19th Amendment in 1920 was the result of their efforts, giving women for generations to come a voice and expanding opportunities. Empowered to achieve greatness, women have exceeded all expectations. Today, we make up nearly half our coun-trys workforce and the majority of stu-dents in our colleges and universities. We are running companies and pro-viding convoy security in our military. We have more women doctors, lawyers, accountants, nurses, teachers „ you name it „ than at any time in our history. As of today, 293 women have served in the U.S. Congress, 36 women have served as governors in state houses across the country, and countless others have served as state and local legislators and county officials like myself. What an achievement! In every presidential election since 1964, the number of women voters has exceeded the num-ber of male voters, and hopefully it wont be long before we have a woman in the White House too! The path paved by those women who marched on Washington 50 years ago has inspired millions to dream bigger, push open doors, and demand a commitment to equal pay, equal opportunity and equal rights. The strides made have been enormous, but more can be done. To honor the legacy left by those women who wouldnt take no for an answer, lets rededicate ourselves to eliminating the inequalities that still exist and demand that leaders whom we played such a huge role in electing have our interests in mind when making policy decisions. We owe it to our mothers and grandmothers to continue to challenge the sta-tus quo and to inspire our daughters and granddaughters to dream without limits. Very Best,Anne M. GannonTax Collector, Palm Beach CountySuggested vacation reading for President Obama: ‘Catch-22’As the Obama family heads to their annual summer vacation on Mar-thas Vineyard, perhaps the president should take along a copy of Catch-22Ž for some beach reading. Joseph Hellers classic, satirical anti-war novel, published in 1961 and based on his experiences as a bombardier in World War II, is sadly relevant today, as Obamas wars, in Afghanistan and beyond, drag on. Hellers title refers to a fictional military rule that said you could get out of military duty if you were crazy, but if you requested relief from mili-tary duty, you were clearly sane, so you must serve. He wrote, There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that concern for ones own safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the pro-cess of a rational mind. Orr [a pilot in the novel] was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions.Ž Barack Obama ran as the anti-war alternative when he was a primary challenger to Hillary Clinton, whose nomination as Democratic presiden-tial candidate in 2008 was widely held to be inevitable. It was his Oct. 2, 2002, speech in Chicago where he declared his opposition to the imminent inva-sion of Iraq, calling it a dumb war. A rash war. A war based not on rea-son but on passion, not on principle but on politics.Ž As a U.S. senator, he pledged to filibuster any bill that granted retroactive immunity to large telecommunication corporations that cooperated with the Bush administra-tions warrantless wiretapping of U.S. citizens. And on his first day in office, you might recall, he vowed to close the military prison at Guantanamo Bay. Has Obama ended the war in Iraq? Certainly not for the Iraqis. July was one of the bloodiest months there since the height of the insurgency against the U.S.-imposed Iraqi gov-ernment. So far this year, more than 4,000 Iraqis have been killed, mostly by bomb blasts that targeted civil-ians, and close to 10,000 have been injured, in attacks by Sunnis against Shias or vice versa. On July 22, a mili-tary assault was launched against the Abu Ghraib prison, made notorious 10 years ago by the shocking photos of abuse of prisoners at the hands of their U.S. captors. Five hundred prisoners were freed in the course of the attack, including, reportedly, many senior al-Qaida leaders. Trans-parency International ranked Iraq the seventh-most corrupt government on the planet, narr owly edging out Sudan, Afghanistan, North Korea and Soma-lia. Thirteen U.S. soldiers were killed in Afghanistan in July, including Spc. Caryn Nouv, a 29-year-old mother of two. Obamas embrace of the surveillance state is now well-known, follow-ing revelations from National Secu-rity Agency whistle-blower Edward Snowden. It was in December 2007 when Obamas Senate office issued a press release stating, Sen. Obama unequivocally opposes giving retroac-tive immunity to telecommunications companies and has cosponsored Sen. Dodds efforts to remove that pro-vision from the FISA bill. Granting such immunity undermines the consti-tutional protections Americans trust the Congress to protect. Sen. Obama supports a filibuster of this bill, and strongly urges others to do the same.Ž Months later, not only didnt he fili-buster the bill, he voted for it. Now, President Obama is refusing to meet with President Vladimir Putin in Rus-sia next month, since Putin granted Snowden temporary asylum there. Then theres Guantanamo. The hunger strike among up to 100 prison-ers there, out of the total of 166, has just passed the six-month mark. The Pentagon is force-feeding many of them. Eighty-six have been cleared for release. A majority of the 166 have never been charged, with some held that way for more than 11 years. Despair is said to be rampant among them, so much so that they would rather starve themselves to death than endure more. I dont want these indi-viduals to die,Ž Obama said in April. So he has them violently force-fed to keep them alive, uncharged, with no end in sight. Even if the Obama admin-istration releases two prisoners, a plan press secretary Jay Carney revealed last Friday, there will still be 164 pris-oners languishing there. Before heading on vacation, Commander in Chief Obama gave a rousing speech to Marines at Camp Pendleton, Calif. Elsewhere, Pfc. Bradley Manning sat for another day of his sentenc-ing hearing. Hellers protagonist in Catch-22,Ž Captain Yossarian, holds a wounded comrade, named Snowden, coincidentally, who dies in his arms. The experience cements Yossarians opposition to war. Bradley Manning, too, went to war, and hated what he saw. He took action, leaking docu-ments to spark a national debate. Hellers depiction of war „ grim and stark „ was fiction, though based on his own experience. Obamas wars, his drone strikes, his war on whistle-blowers, are all too real. Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the co-author of The Silenced Majority,Ž a New York Times best-seller.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 15-21, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY DR. MARTY BECKER AND GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickThere are few things that make a veterinarian happier than walk-ing into an exam room to see a pet whos squeaky clean and perfectly groomed. Thats because its a sign of a pet owner whos paying attention to all aspects of preventive pet care and overall comfort. How important is grooming to your pets comfort? Consider a simple mat, so easy to overlook. Have you ever had your hair in a ponytail that was just a little too tight? A mat can feel the same way to your dog „ a con-stant pull on the skin. Try to imagine those all over your body, and you have a good idea how uncomfortable an ung-roomed coat can be. Your dog need never know what a mat feels like if you keep him brushed and combed „ but thats just the start of the health benefits. Regular groom-ing allows you to look for lumps, bumps and injuries, while clearing such things as tangles and ticks from his coat. Fol-low up with your veterinarian on any questionable masses you find, and you may detect cancer early enough to save your pets life. For shorthaired breeds, keeping skin and coat in good shape is easy. Run your hands over him daily, a brush over him weekly and thats it. For other breeds, grooming is a little more involved. Breeds such as col-lies, chows, keeshonden and Alaskan malamutes are double-coated,Ž which means they have a downy undercoat underneath harsher long hair. The down can mat like a layer of felt against the skin if left untended. To prevent this, divide the coat into small sections and brush against the grain from the skin outward, working from head to tail, sec-tion by section. A tip: Yes, you can keep these long-haired dogs clipped short to keep grooming easier „ and youll be rewarded with a dog who sheds the least of all, owing to the longer grow-and-shed cycle of long hair. Silky-coated dogs such as Afghan hounds, cockers and Maltese also need constant brushing to keep tangles from forming. As with the double-coated dogs, work with small sections at a time, brushing from the skin outward, and then comb back into place with the grain for a glossy, finished look. Coats of this type require so much attention that having a groomer keep the dogs trimmed to a medium length is often more practical. Curly and wiry coats, such as those on poodles and terriers, need to be brushed weekly, working against the grain and then with it. Curly coats need to be clipped every six weeks; wiry ones, two or three times a year. (But clipping every six weeks will keep your terrier looking sharper.) A good professional groomer, along with your veterinarian, can be a dogs best friend. Good grooming is about more than keeping your pet looking beautiful and clean-smelling, although those are cer-tainly pleasant payoffs. Regular groom-ing relaxes the dog whos used to it, and it becomes a special time shared between you both. A coat free of mats, burrs and tangles, and skin free of fleas and ticks, are as comfortable to your dog as clean clothes fresh from the wash are to you. It just makes you feel good, and the effect is the same for your pet. Some added benefit for you: Giving your dog a tummy rub after every ses-sion is sure to relax you (and your dog, of course) and ease the stress of your day. Q Comb-out or belly rub? If you approach grooming with a positive attitude and are patient, your pet will enjoy the task as bonding time.

Its restaurant, Deep Blu, is expected to reach the same levels of acclaim as its Orlando location.  Mr. Mastroianni continued: We are also excited to have signed leases with Bravo-Brio Restaurant Group and Too Bizarre, a longtime staple to Jupiter residents.Ž Mr. Mastroianni says the project is creating more than 2,000 jobs (includ-ing construction) and is bringing life to a long-stagnated, prime waterfront area. Harbourside Place will create an excess of 2,000 jobs over the next three years and provide exceptional economic stimulus for the region,Ž Mr. Mastroi-anni said. Furthermore, its location at the corner of U.S. 1 and Indiantown Road has long since been a stagnant area awaiting development. Its ease in acces-sibility and surrounding beauty of the Intracoastal will ensure its popularity and longevity.Ž Reaction from city officials to the project is mixed, though mostly positive. The Harbourside project is going to activate Jupiters Riverwalk, which will give residents the chance to enjoy the waterfront while also creating a sense of a downtown,Ž Jupiter Councilman Todd Wodraska said. The Riverwalk is a beau-tiful stretch that has both peaceful nature stretches, and now with Harbourside and the Jupiter Yacht Club, active retail.Ž Brenda Arnold, Town of Jupiter Community Redevelopment Agency program manager, said, The town is looking for-ward to the opening of the Harbourside Commercial Center as it will not only provide a boost to the local economy, but also active uses within the Entertainment District of the Riverwalk. The proj-ect mix of commer-cial uses (hotel, res-taurant, office and retail), along with public access to the waterfront via the Riverwalk and pub-lic boat slips, will be an asset for the com-munity.Ž Jupiter Councilman Jim Kuretski, the lone nay vote when the project was approved 4-1 in 2008, has continued to come out against the project. He said he feels the developer has been given some special breaks. Its a significant project thats under construction and I hope it turns out to be a success,Ž Mr. Kuretski said. I see it as a significant change, like bringing CityPlace (of West Palm Beach) to Jupi-ter, and I dont feel thats a good fit for Jupiter. Theres a significant amount of bars and not enough family-style enter-tainment.Ž Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Beth Kigel says Harbourside Place will be good for area business. The northern region of Palm Beach County is a great place to live, work and play, and the addition of Harbourside Place further enhances what this com-munity has to offer,Ž Ms. Kigel said. With the combination of a hotel, retail space and restaurants, Harbourside Place will be a hub for economic activ-ity, a destination that will attract locals and visitors from all over the country. Businesses near the Harbourside site have mixed opinions about how the completion of the new development will affect their customer traffic. Thats probably going to draw a lot of people,Ž said Greg Neece, co-owner of Neece Jewelers Inc., which is in the Jupiter Square shopping center on the southeast corner of Indiantown Road and U.S. 1. It will cut into the number of people coming through our shopping center.Ž In the short-term, it will probably hurt our business as people try it out,Ž agreed Scott Whitcomb, manager of Chilis Grill & Bar, which is located in the Shoppes at Jupiter shopping center on the northeast corner of Indiantown Road and U.S. 1. But, in the long run, its going to be a positive for us because it will draw more traffic to our area.Ž Q DAWNINGFrom page 1 Harbourside Place>> Construction cost: $144 million >> Developer: Allied Capital & Development of South Florida, LLC — a Palm Beach Gardens-based company >> Expected completion date: Spring 2014 >> Estimated number of jobs created: 2,000+ >> Hotel information: A two-building, vestory waterfront four-star Wyndham Grand Hotel, with 179 rooms, a rooftop terrace with a pool and bar, and a skybridge con-necting the buildings >> Parking information: Two, ve-story parking garages, with a total of 929 parking spaces; Parking will be validated/paid; There will be retail stores on the bottom oors of the parking garage, as well as some of ce suites located adjacent to the parking garage levels in building 5 >> Marina information: There will be two marinas — one will include 22 leasable slips for vessels up to 60 feet and the second will include nine transient boat slips for day dockage >> Of ce/Retail/Restaurant space information: A total of 360,000 square feet for the complex, broken up into about 60,000 square feet of Of ce space; 54,000 square feet of Retail space; and about 37,000 square feet of Restaurant space >> Riverwalk information: A 20-foot-wide pedestrian easement anchoring Riverwalk, Jupiter’s approximately 2.5-mile-long bicycle/pedestrian route from Ocean Way to the Jupiter Inlet >> For more information: See harboursidejupiter.com; for more information about Allied Capital & Development, see alliedcap-italanddevelopment.com, 561-799-0050.

Expires 8/30/2013. $150VALUE $150VALUE Roach motelAt age 20, Kyle Kandilian of Dearborn, Mich., has created a start-up business to fund his college expenses, but it involves a roomful (in the family home) of nearly 200,000 cockroaches. The environmental science major at University of Michigan-Dearborn breeds species ranging from the familiar household pests, which he sells on the cheap as food for other peoples pets, to the more interesting, exotic Madagascar hissing roaches and rhino roaches, which can live for 10 to 15 years. (Mr. Kandilian told the Detroit Free Press in July that of the 4,000 cockroach species, only about a dozen are pests.) Why not choose a more conven-tional petŽ? Because (m)ammals smell,Ž he said. (Missing from the Free Press story: details on the likely interesting initial conversation between Kyle and his mother when he asked if he could have 200,000 cockroaches in the house.) Q Can’t possibly be trueQ A 55-year-old woman in the Netherlands seemed to be experiencing orgasms emanating from her foot, she said, and Dr. Marcel Waldinger of Utrecht Uni-versity (writing in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, online in June) produced a possible explanation. The applicable left foot nerve enters the spinal cord at about the same level as the vaginal nerve, Mr. Waldinger wrote, and the womans recent foot injury might have caused the nerves to cross. The woman reported five or sixŽ orgasms per day that felt exactly like regularŽ orgasms and, she said, were making her feel terribly guilty and embarrassed. After treatment with a nerve anesthetic, she reported being orgasm-free (in the foot, at least) for eight months.Q The intersection of West Gateway Boulevard and North Congress Avenue in Boynton Beach, (pop. 60,000), is nine lanes wide, busy even at 11 p.m. on Sun-day night, as it was at that time in July when a 2-year-old girl darted across, a combination of good fortune and some-times-rare Florida driver alertness allow-ing her safe arrival on the other side without a scratch. Its a miracle,Ž said Harry Scott, who witnessed it. Im tell-ing you the truth.Ž Mom Kayla Campbell, 26, was charged with felony neglect, as she appeared oblivious,Ž said police, to the childs absence from home.Q An unnamed restaurateur from Nagoya, Japan, has filed a lawsuit against an affiliate of the countrys largest orga-nized crime syndicate, Yamaguchi-gumi, demanding a refund of protectionŽ money she had been paying for more than 12 years (in total, the equivalent of about $170,000). The affiliate, Kodo-kai, burned down a bar in 2010, killing peo-ple, in a similar protection arrangement that went bad, and the plaintiff said she, too, was threatened with arson when she decided to stop paying. According to an expert on Japanese yakuza,Ž a relative of one of the victims of the 2010 fire may also sue Kodo-kai. Q Unclear on the concept Q In June, following his guilty plea in Corpus Christi, Texas, to possession of child pornography, Jose Salazar, 70, offered to perform public service to reduce the 12-year sentence a federal judge had handed him. Salazar said he had a lot to offer society,Ž according to an Associated Press story, and could be usefulŽ in mentoring children.Q At Atherstone, Englands, Twycross Zoo, a program is under way to try to teach quarter-ton giant tortoises to speed up. An extended outdoor pen had been built for Speedy (age 70), Tim, 40, and Shelly, 30, but that meant it took a longer time to round them up for bed at the end of the day. The Leicester Mer-cury reported in June that zoo officials were trying to use the lure of food to get the tortoises to significantly improve their way-under-1-mile-per-hour gait.Q The British sex toy manufacturer Ann Summers issued a recall in June of a certain model of its popular Ultimate O Vibrator because of a problem with the electrical charger. The company said it was being cautious but that the risk of danger is low. Q InexplicableQ Tina Marie Garrison, 37, and her son Junior Lee Dillon, 18, of Preston, Minn., were charged in June with steal-ing almost $5,000 worth of gopher feet from the freezer of a gopher trapper in Granger, Minn., and selling them for the local offered bounty of $3 per pair. Ms. Garrison, Dillon, and the victimized trapper were friends, and it was not clear why the thinly populated gopher-foot market would not have deterred them.Q Louann Giambattista, 55, a 33-yearveteran American Airlines flight atten-dant, filed a lawsuit against the company in July alleging that it had subjected her to baseless hassles because of co-work-ers accusations that, argued her attor-ney, were wrongly making her out to be a nut.Ž One of the accusations was that she was hiding rats in her underwear. Q Strange Old WorldQ The Best of the International Press: In July, the governor of Gorontalo prov-ince in Indonesia decreed that female secretaries should be replaced immedi-ately with males. He was responding to a recent excessive spate of extramarital affairs by male bureaucrats with their female secretaries. ((O)ld women who are no longer attractiveŽ could also be hired, he said.) Q Japanese media were abuzz in June describing the social trend of teenagers who lick each others eyeballs as a sign of dating commitment (roughly equivalent, said the website Japan Crush, to getting to second baseŽ). Health authorities said it is also an excellent way to spread eye chlamydiaŽ and conjunctivitis. Q NEWS OF THE WEIRDBY CHUCK SHEPHERDDISTRIBUTED BY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

Young Friends of the Lighthouse staging social at Bubba Gump SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYFollowing a successful kick-off event in June which brought more than 50 of Palm Beach Countys young profession-als together with the countys oldest landmark, the newly established Young Friends of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse is hosting its second event on Monday, Aug. 26 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The social will be held at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. located at 1065 Flori-da A1A in Jupiter, overlooking the inlet and historic lighthouse, a nationally designated landmark built in 1860. The August social includes one drink, hors doeuvres, and networking with young professionals who share a passion for the unique culture and history of Jupi-ter. The screened-in back patio of Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. features an atmo-sphere great for lounging and socializing „ and a beautiful view of the lighthouse, a structure symbolic of the Town of Jupiter and the surrounding area. Admis-sion to the event is $10 for members of the Young Friends of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and $15 for non-members. Proceeds benefit the Loxahatchee River Historical Society „ the nonprofit orga-nization charged with operations and funding for the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum. Guests should RSVP to yfjupiterlighthouse@gmail.com.The Young Friends group was established in June to bring new energy to the 153-year-old landmark through various volunteer and fundraising projects. For many of us that were raised in Palm Beach County, and even those who are new to the area, the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse symbolizes home,Ž said Tami Borland, chair of the new group. Its important to engage the community in further preserving this rich, beautiful piece of history in our backyard, which has already withstood the Civil War, hurricanes, and earth tremors.Ž The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse is one of only 30 remaining historic lighthouses dotted along Floridas 1,197 miles of coast. Although for thousands of years the impressive point of land sitting at the junction of the Indian and Loxa-hatchee Rivers and Jupiter Inlet had been home for ancient Indian tribes, the strategic site was first recommended as a suitable place for military defenses in 1849. President Franklin Pierce signed the order to set aside a 61.5-acre site on the Fort Jupiter Reservation for a light-house in 1854. The tower was completed in May 1860 and was first lit on July 10 that same year. To learn more about the Young Friends of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse, see www.jupiterlighthouse.org, email yfjupiterlighthouse@gmail.com or call 262-5225. Annual dues of $50 support the Loxahatchee River Historical Soci-ety, stewards of the Jupiter Inlet Light-house & Museum, and as a partner in the National Landscape Conservation System, the Loxahatchee River Histori-cal Society preserves and interprets the dynamic heritage, ancient cultural history and sensitive natural systems of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Outstand-ing Natural Area and the Loxahatchee River region.

Sugar appears in almost every food product in the local supermarket „ even in foods we consider healthy such as bread, fruit and dairy. A diet high in sugar doesnt just affect weight, it can trigger prema-ture aging, an increased risk of diabetes, atherosclerosis, heart disease and even cataracts, according to dietitian Brooke Alpert and Dr. Patricia Farris. They have devised a comprehensive, one-month plan to wean readers of their sugar cravings. It starts with a three-day Sugar Fix, followed by a three-day cold-turkey sugar elimination period that helps recalibrate our taste buds. There is also a three-day Skin Fix to coun-teract sugar-related skin damage. After the initial cleanse, there is a four-week schedule of menu plans, including 50 recipes, to re-educate ourselves about which foods to eat and which ones to eliminate. Many people consume sugar for an energy boost, and then deal with the inevitable crash that follows. According to the authors, the best way to keep ener-gy levels up is to keep your blood sugars stable and avoid the highs and lows of a sugar high. If you follow their plan, you can replace a candy bar with a healthy dose of lean proteins, veggies and whole grains, all guaranteed to keep you energized throughout the day. Put another way, put down that candy bar and pick up a carrot. Its also important to avoid artificial sugars since they often contain fructose, an ingredient that promotes unhealthy belly fat and increases the risk for insulin-resistance, diabetes and heart disease. The Sugar DetoxŽ is a sensible approach, and the bottom line is that eliminating sugar is one of the best ways to improve general health. Q ‘Me Before You’ By Jojo Moyes(Penguin Books, $16)REVIEWED BY EALISH WADDELLLouisa Clark is an easygoing sort of girl whos never had much ambition until circumstances force her to accept a job she feels completely unqualified for, as a companion to Will Traynor, a paralyzed young man confined to a wheelchair. Formerly a dynamic, jet-set businessman, Will was used to con-trolling everything around him and enjoying it all to the fullest. Now that once-active, expansive lifestyle is a tor-menting memory, supplanted by a thou-sand daily discomforts and indignities, and the overwhelming frustration and depression they bring. But Wills quick, sardonic mind is fully intact, and he finds a kindred spirit in the indomitable Lou. The two clash from the first, but as the days go on, they discover surprising things in common, and embark on many small adventures together, some more suc-cessful than others. Lou hopes to show Will all the joys that his altered life can still hold, but ironi-cally, it is Will who opens Lous eyes to the richness of the world around her. But on one thing he will not be moved, and when Lou finds out how he really feels about his future „ and what he plans to do about it „ she resolves to throw everything she has into changing his mind. In the process, Lou begins to realize just how much she has come to care for this fascinating, mercurial man, and he for her. But will it be enough? Me Before You,Ž new to paperback, is an unconventional love story about two people facing some decidedly unro-mantic situations. It handles complex and controversial topics with grace, rec-ognizing that there are no one-size-fits-all solutions. But beneath the issuesŽ lies a story simply about connection and caring, and the recognition that while life can be beautiful, the one thing it will never be is easy. Q

She takes advantage of that opportunity to integrate art and conservation. What I would do is I would ask students to volunteer and I would ask students who I knew would put a lot of heart and soul into their art,Ž she said. For many students, that meant coming in after school or skipping lunch to work on the turtle; others got permis-sion to miss a class in order to work on the project. The kids had about a month to work on the turtles; coming up with a con-cept took about a week, Ms. Wanklyn said. Our sea turtle goes from being out of an egg and journey to the lost city of Atlantis,Ž she said. Its quite a trip.Underneath the shell, the students have depicted what the sea turtle is seeing. The sea turtle sees whales, dolphins, sharks, clownfish and clams. The sea tur-tle runs across a mermaid in Atlan-tis. Thats basically what our sea turtle goes through,Ž Ms. Wanklyn said. She took it one step further, asking student Supreme McCall to write about the turtles journey. Mr. McCalls mom had taken him to the Marinelife Center to visit the sea turtles. I painted the mermaid and I helped all around,Ž he said. And my teacher, Miss Wanklyn, since she heard from my English teacher that I as a good writer, she asked me to write a poem about it.Ž He was moved by the notion that female sea turtles dig their nests, lay eggs and then return to the sea, never to see their offspring. Sea turtles cant stay and see their children hatch,Ž said Mr. McCall, who is 15 and will enter 10th grade this school year. He lives in West Palm Beach. He responded to the sea turtles life with a poem that begins: I just laid my babies, covered them in a blanket of sand. I dont know if Ill ever see them again. I dont know where theyll go, or who they might be, but I must go. I inch back to the water and with one last goodbye, I emerge into the sea.Ž He wrote something and I printed it up and I thought it was awesome. His teacher in reading and writing was one of the teachers who gave permission for him to work on the turtle,Ž said Ms. Wanklyn. Organizers of the event take heart from stories such as that. Thats exactly what Im talking about. We are reaching many, many people you wouldnt reach for conser-vation,Ž Ms. Jaffe said. Proceeds from the auction of these sculptures will directly support Log-gerhead Marinelife Centers portfolio of conservation services: education, research and sea turtle rehabilitation,Ž Mr. Lighton said. The $1,500, $1,000 and $500 checks the winning schools receive through the auction can make a real difference in the schools art budgets. One school told me they had a $250 budget for 200 students for the entire year. Dwyer (High School) got a $500 check. We were able to triple their bud-get,Ž Ms. Jaffe said. And hopefully inspire that next generation of artists and conservationists. I love it when students not only use their creativity but seek knowledge on whatever were talking about,Ž Ms. Wanklyn said.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 15-21, 2013 NEWS A15 linda LIPSHUTZllipshutz@floridaweekly.com HEALTHY LIVING Adult siblings: Avoid reverting to those childhood hurtsIts very rare to see Liz without a smile on her face, so I was taken aback when I saw her simmering with rage last week. (Ive changed the names and identify-ing details.) She looked exhausted and started venting nonstop in a completely uncharacteristic way. I just had a huge fight with my sister Meryl. I dont care if I ever speak with her again.Ž Meryl is a prominent physician in Manhattan and claims that it is too difficult for her to make the trip to Florida very often to see their 82-year-old mother, Ida. Ida still lives alone, but serious health issues have necessitated care from full-time aides. Meryl thinks that I should be at the beck and call of the family because I only work part time. And of course, because she has such a high-powered job, she thinks its OK to be off the hook. But its always been about Meryl. Mom was so busy bragging about Meryl that she never noticed anything I did. When Meryl married Jeff, Mom couldnt stop talking about their Park Avenue apart-ment, their house in the Hamptons and their perfect children. Because I live in Florida, its just expected that Im the one to take care of Moms affairs and take her to the doctors. Yesterday, when Meryl started talking in that superior tone of voice, chastising me for the way I handled a situation with the aide, I blew up at her in a way that I had never done before. And then when I tried to vent to Mom about what happened, she start-ed in with how I should understand how demanding Meryls career is. She doesnt see how her favoritism has put a wedge between us. I wish they would give me some credit for how much I do. I thought that I had buried the hatchet with Meryl a long time ago, but after we argued, the same feelings that I used to have rushed over me like it was yesterday.Ž When extended family systems are overloaded by extreme circumstanc-es, such as illness, financial upheav-als or death, people tend to regress to previous, often disruptive, patterns of relating. Negative feelings among family members can trigger powerful, visceral reactions that are often more extreme than the situation warrants. Lifelong hurts, jealousies and resent-ments among siblings come storming back and parents unwittingly can fuel the fire with innocuous comments that are perceived to be unappreciative of ones efforts or to show favoritism. Even with the best of intentions, when a person is filled with negative feelings toward her siblings, it not only compromises her ability to be helpful to their parent, it seriously depletes her emotional and physical well-being. Important steps can be taken to lessen the sting of the conflicts, and in fact, to forge stronger, more gratifying rela-tionships. It is important for Liz not to let grievances fester without addressing them. Staying in an angry and unreach-able place is actually a choice that one makes. Liz would be well served to make a concerted effort to let go of her anger and move past her differences with Meryl to see if the two can work together. However, the way that she communicates her frustrations is key. If she sticks to the facts and avoids a sarcastic, accu-satory tone, she might be better able to reach her sister in a way that joins them together in the shared responsibility. She should avoid interpreting her sis-ters actions (i.e. you dont want to be bothered by this. You think that your job is so important that you dont consider my feelings.) In fact, Meryl might care much more than it seems and might have her own frustrations long-distance that Liz is not aware of. Is it possible that Lizs anger has been so blatant that Meryl backs off in defense? Saying Im sorryŽ or I forgive youŽ when appropriate can have tremendous mileage. If Liz is more open and recep-tive to Meryls position, she will be bet-ter able to articulate how Meryl can be of help to her, even long distance. For example, she might request that Meryl come to visit her mother on a specific date so that Liz can have peace of mind to attend an out of town wedding. Or she can request that Meryl make some of the phone calls, or take charge of the paperwork. She might even say that it means a lot to her when Meryl acknowledges that Liz has assumed a lot of the daily load and for Meryl to voice that she would like to be there emotionally for Liz if it is possible. Adult children play a crucial role in helping aging parents. The emotional and physical demands are such that it takes a concerted effort on everyones part to work collaboratively and supportively to provide the necessary care.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 15-21, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYThe scoop on juicingTons of tips, tricks and recipes squeezed into expert’s new book SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYIts not just celebrities, world-class athletes and champions of alternative diets who are turning to smoothies and freshly juiced veg-etable and fruits for improved health, says nutritionist Cherie Calbom, aka The Juice Lady.Ž People from all walks of life are juicing to lose weight, energize, sleep bet-ter, strengthen their immune systems and have brighter skin and a younger appearance, Ms. Calbom says. Theyre also juicing to help their bodies heal from a variety of ailments,Ž she adds. For those just getting started, she offers The Juice Ladys Big Book of Juices and Green Smoothies,Ž chocked full of juicing tips, tricks and recipes. No matter your diet, juicing offers a shot of goodness „ nutri-tion, minerals, phytonu-trients and more „ that you might not otherwise get, she says. Here are some of her insights and pointers:Q Fruits and veggies happiness studies: Plenty of research shows that adding more pro-duce to your daily diet can benefit your men-tal health and sense of well-being. In one analysis of the eating habits and moods of 80,000 Brit-ish adults, researchers at Dartmouth and the University of Warwick found that those who consumed the most fruit and vegetables every day rated them-selves as significantly happier and more sat-isfied with their lives than those who ate lesser amounts. The well-being score for people who ate seven to eight servings of vegetables and fruits per day was consis-tently three points higher than for those who ate little or none.Q More research: Researchers at the Har-vard School of Public Health concluded from a study of 982 Americans that those who exhib-ited the most optimis-tic outlooks on life also had the highest blood levels of carotene, a key antioxidant thats deliv-ered by a colorful array of produce: dark green spinach and kale, carrots and sweet potatoes, and vibrant yellow or orange fruits like peaches, papayas and can-taloupe, among others.Q Why not just eat produce? The reality is that most people in todays soci-ety rarely get an optimal amount of fruits and veggies throughout the day. A cup of vegetables is considered a serving, whereas of a cup of juice equals one serv-ing; chewing seven to eight servings of produce every day requires much more effort and time than drinking fresh juice for some of the servings.Q Flavor diversification: Some people fall into creative ruts because they stick to the same basic ingredi-ents, and that can be a disincentive for sticking with juicing. Ms. Calbom suggests breaking out of the juice box by trying gourmet and exotic blends, or even plant-based ingredients you simply havent yet considered, such as butternut squash, chunks of gingerroot, beets with leaves and stems, Brussels sprouts and fennel bulbs with fronds. Spice it up and experiment,Ž she says.Q An exotic example: A fennelwatercress-cucumber blend juice is an excellent way to mix up your typical cocktail. It includes: A handful of watercress, one dark green lettuce leaf, one cucumber (peeled if not organic), fennel bulb and fronds and one lemon (peeled if not organic). Cut produce to fit your juicers feed tube. Wrap watercress in lettuce leaf and push through the juicer sl owly. Juice all remaining ingredients. Drink immediately. This portion serves one. Q „ Cherie Calbom holds a masters degree in nutrition from Bastyr University and has practiced as a clinical nutritionist at St. Luke Medical Center, Bellevue, Wash., and as a celebrity nutritionist for George Foreman and Richard Simmons. Calbom ADVERTISEMENT ASK THE DENTAL EXPERT Number of implants depends on tooth location Question: Can I just get one implant? Answer: Depending on the position of the tooth you are replacing, you can use one implant. If you are restoring multiple teeth or a molar, you may need to consider more than one implant. The number and size of the implants installed will depend on the type of tooth or teeth you are replacing and the strength of the bone at that location. An average implant is about the size of one root. Your lower molars have two big roots and your upper molars have three big roots. Teeth have different size and multiple roots by design. If the bone that supports teeth or implants receives too much stress, the bone will start to disappear. Nature has given teeth different configurations of roots to be able to distribute and spread these forces over a larger area. This helps diminish the impact and protecting the supporting bone. The strongest bone in your jaw is located where your lower front teeth are found. This is why these teeth have small roots. Strong bone can absorb more force, therefore, less root surface is required. Your weakest bone is where your upper molars are positioned. This bone is close to your sinuses and contains lots of air sacks keeping that bone soft. This is why these teeth have three big roots.Dr. Jay Ajmo earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Emory University School of Dentistry in 1986.

The air is warmed and humidified before it reaches your chest. If breathing feels blocked, it can result in a marked decrease in your quality of life. This is manifested in many ways including poor sleep, dry mouth, nasal stuffiness and the inability to get enough air while exercising. Of the multiple causes of poor nasal breathing, I find that structural deformities of the nose are some of the most common. When evaluating people with nasal obstruction, I use a very thorough examination to identify all deformities. If a short course of medication fails to improve your symptoms, a surgical option is discussed. I offer advanced surgery that utilizes approaches and techniques which I have learned as a rhinoplasty specialist. This gives people the best chance at significantly improved breathing. A combination of straightening the nasal bones, re-orienting cartilages, and placing grafts and sutures are needed to re-establish an open passage for good nasal airflow. To track improvement, I use a quality of life survey specific for this issue. I have developed a soon-to-be published classification system using this survey. Classifying your results will help you better understand your problem and can be used to predict anticipated results from surgery. To see if a nasal obstruction surgery is right for you, please call my office to schedule an appointment.

A18 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 15-21, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYFeet a common object of collector’s obsessionsA realistic replica of a full-size foot in a sandal seems like a strange choice of ornament for the average home. But feet and shoes have been popular ornaments for centuries. The foot of an ancient black man wearing a two-strap gold sandal was made by the modern artist Piero Fornasetti to be placed on a table in a modern house. The 3 -by-9-inch foot is life-size. A 19th-century bronze candleholder was made in the shape of a foot in a sandal with an extended large toe topped by a cup to hold a candle. One 20th-century advertisement for a foot powder was a plaster replica of an oversized bare foot. A wooden bare foot, a little smaller than life-size, was carved by a 1920s folk artist as a gift for his podiatrist; it was to be used as a paper-weight. A sleek modern bronze bare foot paired with a bronze hand was made by a 1970s Danish artist. Victorians seem to have preferred feet wearing shoes as ornaments. Some shoes were padded to be pincushions, and pressed glass shoes with no special use are easy to find at antiques shows. A podiatrist we know has a famous collection of shoe-shaped objects in his office „ more than 100 items. Collecting by shape is just one way to organize a hobby. Most popu-lar are cats, dogs, ladys heads, angels, buildings and, of course, hands and feet.Q: We have four Hitchcock-style chairs made by the Boling Chair Co. of Siler City, N.C. We have been unable to find any information about this com-pany. Can you help?A: Boling Chair Co. started out in 1901 as Siler City Bending Co. One of the companys founders, Mal Boling, rounded up new investors in 1904 and reorganized the company as High Point Bending and Chair Co. It made bent-wood parts for other companies before producing its own bentwood furniture. It later expanded its furniture lines. The companys name became Boling Chair Co. in 1956 or 57, and then Boling Co. in 1979. Today its based in Mt. Olive, N.C., and is called Boling Furniture Co. If your chairs are marked Boling Chair Co.,Ž they were made between 1956 and 1979. Chairs like it sell online for about $50 apiece.Q: I have a solid-brass Batman belt buckle I think is from the 1940s. Its marked National Periodi-cal Publications, Inc.Ž and has the number 0016 on the back. Can you tell me what year it was made?A: Your Batman belt buckle was made in the early 1940s. National Periodical Publications published the first comic books that included origi-nal material, not reprints of comic strips. The company started out in 1934 as National Allied Publica-tions. It has operated under various names, including Detective Comics and DC Comics. The company published the first Batman comic in 1939. Your Batman belt buckle probably is worth less than $100.Q: I have an antique grip machine that was used in my grandparents tav-ern a century ago. The machine is red metal and works with a penny. It was manufactured by D. Gottlieb & Co. of Chicago. A bell rings when you get the meter so high. There is a chart on the front that has different ages and grip numbers for men and women. How much is it worth?A: Your grip machine is not quite as old as you think. D. Gottlieb & Co. was founded by David Gottlieb in 1927. Originally the company made pin-ball machines. Gottliebs countertop grip tester was first made in 1928. The machine tested grip and arm strength and was a money-maker for stores, tav-erns, barbershops and other retail busi-nesses. Keys were needed to open up the back and get the money out. The grip tester was in and out of production until at least the late 1940s. Gottlieb made hundreds of different games. A couple of years ago, a D. Gottlieb & Co. grip tester with keys sold for $480.Q: Several years ago, I received a sixpiece set of little antique crystal bowls and matching tiny shovels. The set prob-ably dates from the late 19th or early 20th century. Each little bowl is about 2 inches tall and 4 inches in diameter. What were the bowls and shovels used for? And what is the set worth?A: Your little bowls were used to hold salt. Theyre called open salts,Ž standing saltsŽ or salt cellars.Ž An open salt with a shovel-like spoon and a little pepper shaker were set next to each place-setting at the dining table. Instead of shaking salt, diners used the shovel to sprinkle salt on their food. Sets like yours dont sell for high prices today. We have seen six-piece sets sell online for $25 to $50.Q: Years ago I donated many valuable toys and games to various charities. Is there any way to get these sentimental items back?A: Once things are given away, you cant get them back. Charities usually sell the items at resale shops and use the money to support their pro-grams. Toys in good condition also may have been distrib-uted to children in need. You could have taken a tax deduc-tion for the value of the toys at the time you donated them, but now you can be happy that your donation helped the charities you chose.Tip: When repairing antique jewelry, never elimi-nate any marks or inscriptions. For example, when sizing a ring, keep the carat marks and hallmarks. If the shank cant be cut, use a ring guard instead. Q „ Terry Kovel answers as many questions as possible through the column.

It sold for $393 at Humler & Nolan, an auction gallery in Cincinnati. What, me worry? Land speculators discovered Florida in the early 20th Century. They spawned a cycle of relentless development. Con-gestion, urban sprawl, destruction of the environment, and a crosshatch of killer highways are a few of the down-sides that come with too much of a good thing. This is old news if you have lived here awhile or made enough vis-its over the years to have witnessed the erosion and disappearance of what brought you here in the first place. We cant really go back in time. The more pragmatic approach is to compromise with development forces and try to pro-tect and sustain the best of the Florida we still have. The bad news is that even this approach may be no longer feasible or pragmatic enough. The onset in the 21st Century of sea level rise reshuffles all the sustain-ability cards. It is a game changer of extraordinary proportions for Floridas beaches, freshwater supply, and its marshes and coastal regions. Sea level rise also threatens to devastate the states agriculture and tourism, and just about everything else. The consequenc-es are far more profound than state policy makers are prepared to consider. Take the issue of freshwater supply: Florida is sucking up its fresh water faster than rain can replenish under-ground aquifers. This is a bellwether issue for especially South Florida. The freshwater supply for about three mil-lion people depends heavily on the health of the Everglades ecosystem. It is a startling revelation to learn that sea level rise dramatically affects the future of this critical resource because of the very real threat of saltwater intrusion. If the water supply goes bad for South Floridas communities, it will not mat-ter you dont live on the beach. Science, technology and engineering (STEM) are the new-new educational priorities of the state administration, so it is ironic that the fact-based science behind climate change is poo-pooed by the states highest policy leadership. That shoe doubtlessly fits others, too; but whether you believeŽ or not in climate change, engaging in an endless debate is the equivalent of a circular firing squad. It hardly matters what you believe. Whatever the cause, sea level rise is happening. Eight of the 10 U.S. cities most at-risk are here and about 2.4 million people in Florida live within four feet of the local high-tide line. Says another science authority on the subject, Florida occupies a uniquely unfa-vorable position as the canary in the mine shaft of sea level riseŽ „ and we all know what happens to the canary. A recent symposium in Palm Beach County was an exceptional opportunity for community leaders to learn more about sea level rise and to discuss the grim realities Florida faces if it doesnt start now to plan. The event, hosted by the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation, The League of Women Voters, and the Oxbridge Academy of the Palm Beaches, brought over two hundred people together for plenaries, panels, and breakouts that focused on the Ever-glades, drinking water and the coming coastal crisis. Keynote speaker, John Englander, the author of High Tide on Main Street,Ž underscored the scientific evidence that sea level rise is occurring globally and at the fastest rate in the planets his-tory. He isnt alone. Stanford University climate researchers say climate change over the next one hundred years will likely occur ten times faster than the rate of any climate shift in the past 65 million years or since the dinosaurs went belly-up. The federal government takes sea level rise seriously, too, as a national security issue; but in Florida, one of the countrys most vulnerable states, the issue is not yet on the radar of the state legislature. Fortunately, like the symposiums sponsors, not every-one is waiting for them to have an Aha!Ž moment. The Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Compact founded in 2010 by Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe Counties, coordinates miti-gation and adaptation to sea level rise across county lines. It is a new form of climate governance and helps local governments to set agendas for adapta-tion and benefit from the efficiencies of a regional approach to accessing state and federal sources of assistance and support. The Compact encourages an on-going collaborative effort among the Compact counties to foster sustainabil-ity and climate resilience on a regional scale. More needs doing and now. For all those who belong, in the face of the facts, to the What, me worry?Ž camp, you need to know you should be.

F fo in A22 BUSINESS WEEK OF AUGUST 15-21, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Expect a little animal magnetism this fall at Neiman Marcus. Animal prints and furs held sway during a recent unveiling of fall trends at Neiman Marcus store on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach. Also on the rack: shades of violet, bits of black lace and the industrial metal studs, zippers and grommets of biker chic. Look for all different shades of violets and Bordeaux,Ž said Beth Pine, vice president and general manager of the Worth Avenue store, during the preview. One outfit paired a Helmut Lang motorcycle jacket with a Leger dress. The model wore patent leather high-heeled booties by Saint Laurent and lent the black ensemble a pop of color with a purple tote by Alexander McQueen. Those booties „ and boots „ seem to be big this fall. All one had to do was look at the Boys Town chic the fashionistas were promoting. One paired combat boots by Valentino with a white Theory leather jacket that topped a plaid flannel Haute Hip-pie shirt. The shirt may have reminded visitors of a lumberjack, especially when worn with the calf-length Cucinelli Tusedo pants accessorized with a chain belt. But it was not all about the boys and industrial. The Violet Femmes look had many of those purple hues. Bordeaux patent pumps by Manolo Blahnik and a clutch by Alexander McQueen brought together a single-hued purple outfit with a violet lace dress by Dolce, and Tadashi pink/black lace dress had a slightly retro flair. Look for fun with fashion for the fall season,Ž said Ms. Pine who was dressed in a purple knit frock. Fun, maybe, but visitors to Neiman Marcus also were seeing red during that preview. Red is the new neutral,Ž Ms. Pine said, before introducing a model in an all-red ensemble of a Helmut Lang dress, McQueen scarf and a red hat paired with red Blahnik pumps and a Balenciaga tote. Being stylish doesnt come cheap.A pair of Saint Laurent boots with chain and pearls that exemplifies that biker chic look could set you back $2,395. An Alexander McQueen tote may cost $1,595. A pair of Tom Ford patchwork boots could set you back $5,980. But fancy footwear is one fall trend thats not new.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE WEEK OF AUGUST 15-21 2013 A23 Doreen Nystrom is celebrating five years as sales manager for Lang Real-tys Palm Beach Gardens and Jupiter offices. But she might as well be celebrating the happy accident that led to her career in real estate. It was 1977 and she needed to work.When I first moved down here, I had to get a job quickly, so I went to a temp agency and thats how I got start-ed in a title agency,Ž she said. From the title industry, she moved into real estate sales. Ms. Nystrom, who lives in the Lake Worth-Boynton Beach area, started her career in Palm Beach County, then spent 16 years in Broward County. She has worked in Palm Beach County since 1998. When she started her job five years ago in northern Palm Beach County, the real estate industry was hitting the skids, and times were quiet in Jupiter, too. When I first started here, Id have to open the door to the Publix parking lot. I thought I would look out to see tumbleweeds,Ž she said. Its not been a bad career for a woman who studied acting in school and wound up in real estate. Ms. Nystrom said she has two grown children, four grandchildren and a husband of 35 years. None is in the real estate industry. Here are her thoughts on the industry:Q: What are some changes you have seen since coming on board as manager at Lang?A: Weve seen an awful lot of change in the last five years, the biggest one being in successful sales. Theres always buyers buying and sellers sell-ing no matter what market youre in. We had a lot of failed sales due to mortgage restrictions. We are now see-ing more going through even though its challenging.Q: What do you see for the future?A: We live in a demographic that is sought-after. People will always come to Florida. Its a beautiful area. People will always be doing real estate invest-ment. Id like to say its going to be positive.Q: What lessons did you learn from the last downturn?A: People say history repeats itself. I say it differently. I say we repeat his-tory. As long as people dont buy more than they can afford. ƒ They cannot make the same mistakes that the lend-ers made and the buyers themselves made.Q: But you didnt really plan that career in real estate, did you?A: Youd be surprised how many people end up on that path. Because I got a temporary job in a title insurance agency and I liked the business, thats how I wound up in it. It didnt start out as my strategy.I teach a lot of seminars and I teach a lot of classes. I tease the students by telling them Im just a frustrated actress. It absolutely has taught me to learn how to communicate effectively.Q: So youre able to use that training after all?A: When youre onstage you have to be able to have presence and to effec-tively communicate. In real estate, we have to effectively demonstrate value and effectively communicate. And thats what I teach agents. How do you have presence? How do you demonstrate that youre a value, not an expense?

Detroit offers lessons about the complexity of municipal bankruptcy In the wake of depressions and recessions, personal and corporate bankruptcies become all too common. Most recently, several municipal bankruptcies have been declared, most notably Detroits bankrupt-cy. Understanding what is happening in Detroits legal proceedings requires a gen-eral knowledge of bankruptcies. A bankruptcy is a legal status to describe a persons (or an entitys) inability to repay its debts to its creditors, which include lenders, trade merchants still owed pay-ment, employees owed pension and other benefits, etc. The matter is settled in court before a judge who specializes in bankrupt-cies and according to the federal laws gov-erning bankruptcies (as state law, both state statute and state case law, does not apply). There is not a jury trial. The judge listens to all parties and makes the final decision. There are different types of bankruptcies: personal, corporate and municipal; in that sequence, they progress in legal complexity. Personal bankruptcy became quite p revalent in the most recent great recession. Typically, the borrower filed for bankruptcy and went before the court seeking elimina-tion or reduction in the debts owed. Other than debts owed to the U.S. government, which are extremely difficult to get erased or forgiven. (e.g., student loans or tax liens), the judge can extinguish debts and let the creditor start anew without any debts, or the judge can fashion a plan of partial or extended repayments on debts. A core con-cept in any bankruptcy proceeding is that secured creditors are entitled to take their security/asset backing their loan e.g., a bank taking the home that was mortgaged. Next in complexity are corporate bankruptcies. The larger the size and the greater the reach of international operations (i.e., a labyrinth of assets that are all over the world), the more difficult the maze. There also can be a long list of indebtedness with varying degrees of seniority and security, meaning it takes effort to determine: if a secured claim is a valid claim; what the security is worth; and the seniority/or peck-ing order of creditor payoff if there is no security backing the debt. In general terms, just as in personal bankruptcies, a secured creditor in a corporate proceeding will most likely get payment in full if the debt is secured by a very high quality asset with value equal or greater than the associated debt. For instance, corporate debt of $1 bil-lion that is secured by a $2 billion asset is in good position to get paid in full or, in lieu of payment, to get the asset in satisfaction of the debt. In comparison to corporate bankruptcies, the municipal bankruptcy process is less clean (as municipal bankruptcies are often clouded by politics) and less clear (as there are types of debt unique to munici-palities, like revenue bondsŽ). Look to a specific revenue stream for repayment and general obligation bondsŽ look to the municipalitys tax receipts for repayment. Also, unlike most corporations, municipali-ties are obligated to respond to a wide array of pension obligations for its municipal employees. In a municipal bankruptcy, the judge must continue to pay a large portion of the police, fire, schools, emergency, etc., as these employees are needed to continue working. In a municipal bankruptcy, time is of the essence. The judge looks to expedite the process. The judge needs to be ever so sure that the restructuring plan for the municipality will let it build a future and not be hamstrung by past debts. With that as background, here is the skinny on Detroit: Prior to its bankruptcy filing on July 18, 2013, the citys mayor had been replaced by an emergency manger as of March 2013. After attempts by the manager to cut operating losses and reduce liabilities, he went to bankruptcy court in order to force a reduction of its $20 billion liabilities upon its many different creditors. Some of the creditors dont want a judge to decide their payoff and they want a jury to decide their fate. Normally objections to proceeding with a bankruptcy are rejected but there might be a valid claim that the emergency manager failed to negotiate in good faithŽ with the creditors and summar-ily proceeded into bankruptcy court. But if the proceedings continue in bankruptcy court, then a judge will be deciding the fate of the various creditors. The emer-gency manager proposes the new financial plan. If this restructuring plan does not vio-late any federal bankruptcy rules, then the judge can accept it. Creditors participate in the restoring plans but ultimately their objections can be disregarded and the new plan crammedŽ down upon them as ulti-mately the judge decides a plans fairness. The greatest challenge is how the pension obligations will be decided. There are many municipalities saddled with pension and health-care obligations that must be reduced in order for them to survive. The emergency manager wants a restructuring plan to emerge in 2014. The judge seems to be on board with that aggres-sive timetable, however the judge cannot control the appeal process of creditors, which can slow down any emergence from bankruptcy. Appeal after appeal by various creditors could add to the untimely, painful fate of Detroit. The travesty is that Detroit was once a shining light to the world. It is now a finan-cial disaster and, physically, many parts are an eyesore. Approximately 36 percent of Detroits residents live below the U.S. poverty level. How did such a great city go so wrong? Clearly, it lived beyond its means and did not introduce a sufficient level of new business investment or new entities into its economic mix. It would seem that municipalities with marginal credit will find it harder to finance themselves and investors will look at pri-vate sector/corporate bonds with greater interest.

The thoroughly staged concert musical is nothing new in New York City, but it was a rarity in South Florida until a few years ago when director Clive Cholerton began mounting them at the Caldwell Theatre and now at Palm Beach Dramaworks. Which bring us to the glowing joy and slight frustration suffusing Dra-maworks-Cholertons third entry in its Musical Theatre Masters series, an unas-sailably well-crafted, well-performed, downright entertaining production of Stephen Sondheims Continental Divide of American theater, Company.Ž Mr. Cholerton and musical director Paul Reekie lead a generally terrific cast applying admirable skill, intelli-gence, wit and emotion to superb but challenging material. But as with Dra-maworks equally fine Man of La Man-chaŽ last month, a dimension and a depth are missing. In this case, its the wrenching urban angst, the desperate loneliness carefully camouflaged and damped down under studied sophisti-cated miens. But now having seen several of these staged concerts, including one of the new musicals this summer at the The-atre At Arts Garage, it is clear that the unavoidable culprit is simply limited rehearsal time. While many such outings are lucky to get a few hours of run-through, Drama-works has wisely and generously under-written a full weeks rehearsal with a primarily Equity cast. Mr. Cholerton and his talented troupe have used that time well. Scripts perch on music stands as a safety net, but the performers have it all pretty cold, allowing Mr. Cholerton to move them all over the stage, even add-ing some minimal choreography.Dramaworks keeps good “Company” in Sondheim show BY BILL HIRSCHMANSpecial to Florida WeeklyCOURTESY PHOTO Quinn VanAntwerp and Leah Sessa in a scene from “Company.”

The answer arrives just as were drifting off to sleep, long after the moment to do anything about it has passed. Still we grab at the idea that eluded us, this gift come too late. In my final week in France, where I spent the summer, I attended a concert with a man Id been torn about my entire stay. He was older than I am, handsome, and charming. He had sophisticated tastes and a kind, gentle manner. He was the sort of man whom, in other circumstanc-es, I might have loved. But he was in the middle of what he himself called a midlife crisis,Ž and I watched as he worked to tear down the life he had spent the better part of his years building: a good marriage, a success-ful career„all the markers of success most of us covet. I know,Ž he would say guiltily, I have been a lucky man.Ž I wanted no part in the demolition or the wreckage I knew would follow. The concert was set in the center of the old city on a stage in the mid-dle of castle walls. The scene glit-tered with an ephemeral beauty as a Spanish singer took the stage. My date and I sat side by side, impos-sibly chaste, as her rich, melancholy voice soared above the ramparts. The sad, lonely chords of the music seeped into my bones, and I won-dered if it was affecting him too. I thought about reaching over and taking his hand, but then I stopped myself. What would that accom-plish? Nothing good, I reasoned, so I sat with both hands firmly in my lap. The first performance ended and there was a brief intermission. I got up to find the bathroom and by the time I came back the lights had dimmed for the second act. Beside me, the mood had changed. Whereas before our knees pointed toward one another so that we sat lean-ing slightly together, my date had turned so that his back was to me. A chill, heavy as fog, had rolled in. Afterward, we spent most of the ride back to the village in silence. He said something briefly, angrily, about me abandoning him at the concert but it felt disingenuous, not the true reason for the sudden cold-ness between us. He drove without speaking and I sat in silence, trying to figure out where the night had turned. And like that, the summer ended. I saw him little our last days together, and when I did he was cordial but distant. I couldnt help but think I had done something wrong. Its only now, back home in Florida, that I see what it was. The answer came to me as I was falling asleep one night, still jet-lagged, still running the summer through my mind. It was so obvious that I won-der now, from here, how I ever could have missed it. I should have taken his hand. Q artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

He then attempts to guard against every type of misfortune he can think of. So when South first views the dummy at four hearts, he takes the somber view that he could lose a spade, a heart and two clubs and go down one. He recog-nizes that he might not have to lose a trump trick, and that he will lose only one club trick if West has the ace, but he starts by assuming he will be unlucky on both counts. His next step is to try to overcome this imagined bad lie of the cards. He notes that if the spades are favorably divided, he might be able to establish a spade winner to take care of one of his losing clubs, and that this possibility can be pursued without relinquishing his other chances for the contract. Accordingly, he wins the diamond with the king and immediately leads a spade. West follows low, and East takes the jack with the king. Let's say East returns a diamond to the ace, where-upon South ruffs a low spade. Declarer now cashes the A-K of trumps, discovering that he does in fact have to lose a trump trick, and then ruffs a diamond with dummy's ten. When he next trumps another low spade, West's ace falls, and the contract suddenly becomes secure. South later discards a club on the queen of spades and winds up losing only a spade, a heart and a club. Note that if declarer ignores the spades at the outset and instead places his hopes on a favorable trump split or on finding West with the club ace, he goes down. The practice of seeking a way at the outset to offset potential bad luck pays handsome dividends from time to time. Q

I mean they were standing up, dancing, clap-ping, cheering, hanging over the ledge screaming, Woo! Woo! rocking with the band,Ž organizer Kathi Kretzer says of her inaugural jam fest. The event raised close to $40,000. This year Ms. Kretzers looking to raise even more. She has a country-western singing hospital CEO, a classical-guitar-playing pulmonologist, a gynecologist who plays a mean clas-sical piano, an opera-singing veterinar-ian, a comedian whos an anesthesiolo-gist, a dermatologist who wants to be a Broadway singer, a plastic surgeon and a neonatologist dancing the salsa, as well as other medical professionals with a myriad of musical talents. Eighty percent of the net proceeds will go to Adopt-A-Family. Twenty per-cent will go to the Kretzer Piano Music Foundation. The Physicians Talent Showcase will thereby help children who have musical aspirations but face financial hardships, children who used to be homeless, children who just want a chance at music, a chance to learn and a chance to perform. John Fernandez, an emergency physician, will be one of the doctors step-ping out on stage. His other pursuits in life make him sound like some kind of mad Floridian who would be por-trayed in a Carl Hiaasen novel: Hes a practicing attorney, commercial pilot, sea captain, chef, guitarist, vocalist and ventriloquist. He started out playing piano but gravitated to the guitar after he went to his first KISS concert. When I got accepted to medical school I called my mom and said, Mom, Im at a crossroads.Ž He asked her if he should follow music or medi-cine. She said, If you dont become a doctor, Im going to kill you.Ž Last year at the Physicians Talent Showcase, Dr. Fernandez sang, Hurts So Good,Ž to Sarah Ferrer. He found the lyric With a girl like youŽ humor-ous, as she was almost eight months pregnant. This year the two will sing two songs: Youre the One That I WantŽ from GreaseŽ and Waking Up Is Hard To DoŽ a play on Breaking Up Is Hard To DoŽ with lyrics spoofing off of anesthesia: Dont take my tube away from me/Im trying to breathe, oh, cant you see/Take it out and Ill turn blue/Cause waking up is hard to do.Ž Board certified in internal medicine, Dr. Ferrer has one more year before shes a board certified dermatologist, too. She started singing in her church choir. She sang all through grade school, high school and in her sorority in college. Shes sweet and petite and shes totally going to the Jay-Z and Jus-tin Timberlake concert in Miami. I think for me, music was a way to channel my energy,Ž Dr. Ferrer says. I think there are a lot of kids out there who have a lot of energy and just dont know what to do with it. Music was one of the healthiest ways that I channeled my energy and it made me comfortable presenting myself in front of people. I think music and dance and all the fine arts did that for me, getting me ready to speak in front of people, be comfortable in front of a crowd, skills that I still use today.Ž Talent show coordinator Ms. Kretzer started playing piano at age 6. My dad was a minister and my mother was the choir director so I had no choice but to play piano in church,Ž she says. She went on to play in stage bands. She played on five-star cruise lines. She played the organ for the Atlanta Braves. She has played for presidents wives. Music is something that you can take with you as a gift that you have forever,Ž Ms. Kretzer says. Music has opened doors and opportunities for me that I never would have had had I not had the music background and I think it would be a shame for any young person who would like to participate in music not to be able to do so because of a financial hardship.Ž Forever consumed with bringing music to young artists, Ms. Kretzer involves herself in tangles and tan-gles of philanthropy. She started her Kretzer Piano business in 1985. She has been raising money for local charities ever since. Her Music for the Minds concert series has given 8,800 musi-cal youngsters the chance to perform, while raising nearly $300,000 off of $10 ticket sales, helping to keep music in schools. Music students entertain the residents of nursing homes and assist-ed living facilities through her Kretzer Kids program. She finds it hard to sell pianos because she would rather spend her time working on her benevolent endeavors. What I didnt realize was that we have over 1,000 children that we know of every night in Palm Beach County that sleep homeless in parks and cars and Wal-Mart parking lots. Its a dis-grace. Having adults that are homeless on the streets in America is one thing, because some of them have other issues, either mental health issues, which they shouldnt be on the street either, or alcoholism or drug abuse, but to have children and babies sleep-ing in cars at night is inexcusable and it shouldnt happen,Ž Ms. Kretzer says. Adopt-A-Family is rated in the Top 10 charities on Charity Navigator (an independent charity evaluator). I did a lot of research before I chose them ƒ They are in the Top 10 best charities in the country, which is quite impressive.Ž At the end of last years Physicians Talent Showcase a woman stood on the stage and shared her story of living on streets with her children. It made me feel hopeful that we really are making a difference,Ž Dr. Ferrer says. Something so small as buying a ticket to go see a concert or a show, whatever small act you can do, whether it be rehearsing a song and singing it front of a bunch of people, these are small, tiny acts that just happen to be enjoy-able and can really change peoples lives for the better and then from there have a ripple effect, that person then changes somebody elses life.Ž Q >>What: 2nd Annual Physicians Talent Showcase>>When: Tuesday, Aug. 20, at 7:30 p.m. >>Where: Harriet Himmel Theater at CityPlace, West Palm Beach>>Cost: $50 >>Info: For tickets, call 866-449-2489 For more information, contact Kathi Kretzer at kkretzer@kretzerpiano.com or call 748-0036. in the know ATHENA PONUSHIS/FLORIDA WEEKLY Sarah Ferrer, an internal medicine doctor working on her dermatology board certification, (left) and emergency room physician John Fernan-dez rehearse for the 2nd Annual Physicians Talent Showcase with Kathi Kretzer at the keyboard.

A36 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 15-21, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY Summer is your time. Make it special. A Unique Dining Experience Book Online at semgulf.com 239-275-8487 or call M M u r d e r M y s t e r y M D i n n e r T r a i n Whats missing is that extra level that actors can only reach with a little more time to experiment, explore and exca-vate from their souls. In the end, it is a concert, beautifully gilded with genu-ine acting and inventive movement, but still a concert. Yearning for a fully fleshed-out production is bringing an unfair yardstick to the evening. So the take-away lesson is that audiences must recalibrate their expectations just as Florida Stage trained them to do when seeing first productions of new work. For instance, the audience can savor Laura Hodos unique The Ladies Who LunchŽ or Wayne LeGe ttes w arm caress of Sorry-GratefulŽ or Alexandra Hales manic Getting Married Today.Ž But when the sole out-of-state ringer here, the affable and talented Quinn VanAntwerp sang the iconic cry of the heart Being Alive,Ž some of us leaned forward trying to physically will him to dig deeper into the heros unleashed anguish and self-knowledge. CompanyŽ examines the emotional growth of Robert, a 35-year-old bach-elor in New York City whose most meaningful relationships are as the best friend and quite-welcome third-wheel to five dysfunctional married couples. On his birthday, we see earlier scenes of him watching and analyzing those mar-riages, contrasted with scenes depicting his inability to commit to serious rela-tionships with three girlfriends. The show is often described as plotless although a well-directed and well-acted production such as the Roundabout revival starring Miamian Raul Esparza depicts an arc of growing pressure until Robert realizes its better living it than looking at itŽ and becomes ready to commit. Its seems a bit unfair to carp since we should be grateful that the staged concert makes it possible that anyone is doing La ManchaŽ or CamelotŽ or CompanyŽ at all. Yes, others do these works (Broward Stage Door is produc-ing CompanyŽ next season). But their budgets often bar them from the high caliber (and relatively well paid) talent that Dramaworks does. So this para-digm of stripped down concert versions keep classic musical theater alive. Stripped downŽ means a chamber version using most if not all of the script and score. Production values are severely limited but inventive, especial-ly Sean Lawsons witty period photos and videos. The orchestra is only Mr. Reekies piano although the arrange-ments are lush enough that you dont feel overly cheated. But in the first time weve heard of it being done, George Furths script has been tinkered with. Two of the five couples have vanished; their scenes and songs have been given to the survivors, although at least one scene disappeared. To bolster the vocal heft of the group numbers, the girl-friends sing in the background; in the original Broadway production, an off-stage chorus was also used to sweeten the sound. As with La Mancha,Ž which had a different musical director, a few ballads are played just a tad too fast, making it tough for the actors to work with the lyrics. Conversely, the difficult triple-paced patter songs, Ms. Hales Getting Married TodayŽ and Natalia Coegos dead-on Another Hundred PeopleŽ seemed just right both in pacing and in the impossible task of enunciating the pretzel lyrics. Mr. Cholerton has a real feel for staging with an almost cinematic smooth-ness. His triumph in pulling off such difficult material with his actors in such a short time could shame some people with triple the rehearsal time and budget. He has cast this with performers as skilled at acting as singing. All are especially deft with comedy such as Maribeth Graham and Mr. LeGettes competitive couple who know exactly where to slide in the knife and how to salve the wounds with love afterward. Ms. Hale, whose day job is as a mar-keting associate at Florida Repertory Theatre in Fort Myers, should be wel-comed back anytime she wants and she gets fine support from Nick Duckart as her patient fianc. Ms. Hodos is, as always, delightful. Barry J. Tarallo makes his love for his verbally dismis-sive wife perfectly credible. The trio of girlfriends are also up to the task: Kath-erine Amadeos just friendsŽ Kathy, Leah Sessas flighty stewardess April and Ms. Coegos young woman passion-ately in love with New York City. Mr. VanAntwerp is a competent hand „ a veteran of three years on Jersey BoysŽ „ with a sweet open face and solid enough voice, but he makes the least impression. Bobby is a decep-tively difficult role. He has to have enough innate magnetism and depict just enough banked angst to hold the audiences attention as the fulcrum of the entire show, even though he really has little to do but react for the first third of the evening. Mr. VanAntwerp doesnt have the chops yet to be able to summon that up in a weeks time. This is grossly unfair, but I would have loved to hear Mr. LeGette do this role a decade ago, or Mr. Duckart try it now. Keep in mind that as one of my favorite musicals of all time, Im setting the bar almost absurdly high. This produc-tion is so solid that anyone who loves Sondheim should travel to West Palm Beach to entertain Company.Ž Q „Bill Hirschman is editor, chief critic and reporter for Florida Theater on Stage, a website devoted to news and reviews about South Florida theater.

But Blondies makes light of that detail, serving up a tender chicken cutlet that was lightly breaded and fried, crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. They served it up on cibatta, with lettuce, tomato and onion „ no need to be fancy here. Our only gripe was a glass of iced tea that was past its best. No problem there. The server quickly offered an alternate beverage. Q „ Scott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE THE DISH Highlights from local menus jim McCRACKENvino@floridaweekly.com What the flash is all about in online wine salesSCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYFood swap is bound for GardensWine flash sales sites „ e-marketers that sell closeout wines in limited quantities, usually for deep discounts „ are a lot like your local discount department store: You cant go there with a preconceived idea of what you want to buy. Instead, you have to be open to purchasing whats available on any given day. For consumers who know their wines and what they typically sell for, there are bargains to be had. Start by signing up with these online retailers to get their daily updates. Some of the popular and more reliable ones are: Cindarellawine.com, Lot18.com and WinesTilSoldOut.com. The offerings are generally available in limited quantities and for short periods, but discounts can range from 25 percent to more than 40 percent per bottle; toss in free shipping on a multi-bottle purchase and you could save some serious money here. Some of the offerings will be things youve never heard of before, but then there will be classics youll know well. Recently, Win-esTilSoldOut.com offered Silver Oaks Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 for $59.99 per bottle (generally retailing for about $70), and Lot18.com featured Le Gode Brunello di Montalci-no 2007 at $29.99 (typically priced at about $50-$54), both with free shipping if you buy enough. Just like shopping around town, not everything is a bargain, despite what the site may say is the usual retail price. For example, one recent offering from LastCallWines.com listed Simi Winery Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc 2012 at a featured price of $12.99, a savings of $7 from the originalŽ price, and free shipping on four or more bottles. It is available direct from Simi online at $15 per bottle, and if you check local and online retailers you can find it for as little as $9.99. Consumers use flash wine sales sites looking for drastic discount prices so the same rules apply as in any market-place: Buyer beware. While consumers seem to be embracing these sites, what do winery owners think of them? Recently, Wines & Vines, an industry magazine and website, sought opinions about the sites from wine executives. Responses ranged from a necessary evilŽ to enthusiasm. Jean-Charles Boisset, who owns DeLoach in Santa Rosa, Calif., and Ray-mond Vineyards in St. Helena, Calif., as well as his familys Boisset brands in France, is quoted saying, Rather than viewing flash sites as a means to clear inventory or raise cash, our experience has been that they can be a valuable additional marketing tool to communicate winery messages, to reach a new and savvy consumer base, to expose consumers to wines they may not readily find at retail or through traditional distribution channels, and to be at the fore-front of an innovative new sales channel.Ž Wines & Vines also quotes Lisa Goff, vice president of marketing for the Crimson Wine Group, which owns Pine Ridge in Napa Valley, Archery Summit in Oregon and Chamisal Vineyards in the Edna Valley along Californias Central Coast. Ms. Goff was more pessimistic, saying, We sold some wines, but its hard to track whether the customers bought more wine from us.Ž As for whether the flash sales were financially worthwhile, she would only say, The wholesale environment is competitive, too.Ž To give you an idea of what can be had, here are some recent offerings I found on some popular sites:Q Cinderellawine. com „ Pujanza Hado Rioja 2009 Spain ($14.99): Wine Advocate, 90 points, An alluring nose, particularly at this level, of fragrant spices, cedar, leather, laven-der, black cherry, and blackberry. Sur-prisingly rich (likely as a result of the vintage), deep, and structured, this suc-culent Rioja is an outstanding value...Ž Jay Miller, Wine Advocate.Q LastCallWines.com „ Beaulieu Vineyard BV Tapestry Reserve Napa Valley 2009 ($39.99): Wine Specta-tor, 91 points, Graceful, with complex spice, herb, dried currant and crushed rock flavors that are well-proportioned and gaining on the finish, where the flavors weave together with subtle nuances. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Mal-bec. Drink now through 2022.Ž James Laube, Wine Spectator.Q Lot18.com „ Montemaggiore Paolos Vineyard Dry Creek Syrah 2006 ($18.99): The nose is powerful and extremely complex, with aromas of blueberry, blackberry, dried herbs, bak-ing spice, pink peppercorns, red flow-ers and pencil shavings. Intense flavors of graphite and pepper explode from the wines smooth texture and lead to a bright, crisp and long finish.Ž Lot18Q WineFlash.com „ Vinos Sin Ley Old VineŽ Monastrell 2011 Spain ($14.99): Wine Advocate, 92 points, Another stunning value from Yecla, the 2011 Vinos Sin Ley Monastrell (100 percent Mourvedre from organic vine-yards) possesses a dense purple color as well as a big, sweet bouquet of blue-berries, blackberries, and chalky, earthy soil, and a heady, rich, full-bodied fin-ish.ŽQ WinesTilSoldOut.com „ Maxwell Creek Winery Napa Valley Caber-net Sauvignon Reserve 2010 ($19.99): 93 points, A refined and expressive nose of blackberry, red currants, plum, and dark cherries.

Caf Boulud offered the following statement: After many years working for Daniel Boulud, Chef Jim Leiken has made the decision to resign from Caf Boulud Palm Beach to pursue other opportunities and we wish him the best of luck for future.
