I didnÂt choose that assignment. It chose me. So you can probably understand why I waited for days Â„ right up to my writ-ing deadline on Monday afternoon Â„ for some editor at Florida Weekly to offer me the next assignment either by phone or electronic mail so the NSA would know it wasnÂt my fault. ÂHey Rog, can you do something for us this week?ÂŽ ÂSure,ÂŽ IÂd say, smiling in knowing anticipation. ÂGood. I want you to write about asses.ÂŽ IÂd pause for a moment in mock surprise. ÂWellÂƒ. OK. If I have to,ÂŽ IÂd reply. But to my very real surprise, those marching orders never arrived. As I pointed out previously to readers, I love breasts Â„ especially healthy breasts. The same is true of asses, but in a more circumspect way. Some asses I admire, and some I donÂt. Which makes me want to write about them all that much more. Without orders from the office, however, I was left to do on Monday afternoon what I learned long ago (about 60 sec-onds after I climbed off a government bus to be introduced to my very first Marine Corps drill instructor), not to do on any occasion, ever: I was left to volunteer. No, they didnÂt ask me to write about asses. So IÂm doing it on my own this week, simply because I can. Somebody has to, after all. Who could resist a chance to write about asses, anyway Â„ especially prominent, even magnificent asses? I use that adjective in the Latin sense, of course: magna means great. ÂMag-nificent,ÂŽ therefore, suggests great big noticeable asses, protrusions so fulsome they become unmistakable. IÂm talking about asses so big theyÂre self-evident to any one, across any language and culture. Whether you come from New Hampshire or New Guinea, from the New World or the Old, when you see the kind of ass IÂm talking about, youÂll know it for what it is. YouÂll say, ÂThere goes a real ass!ÂŽ Or, depending on your origin, you might say: Ahi va un verdadero buey! (Spanish).Or, Voila un veritable cul! (French).Or, Â€b (Chinese). Or, Det gr en real ass! (Norwegian).Or even, There goes a damn Yankee! (Southern). ItÂll all amount to the same thing, of course: a universally recognizable, certi-fied USDA choice Grade A Ass. Now, there are many adjectives used in traditional discourse to describe such a magnificent creation: Fat, for example, as in Fat Ass. You can also say, hard ass, tight ass, pain-in-the ass, dumb ass, horseÂs ass, and so on. But I prefer to be more specific Â„ more graphic, more precise. I am, after all, a Florida Weekly professional. Therefore, IÂll just use a single specific name to describe a single specific Ass of the Week. In future weeks I may select other names for this award, but this week the winner is Â„ are you ready for this? Gen. Keith Alexander, director of the NSA. I think NSA is an acronym for National Security Asses, but it might be National Security Agency. You can look it up, to be sure. Gen. Alexander, ranked at four stars, has spent a significant amount of time in recent months and years assiduously (ass-iduously, which means showing a lot of perseverance) ignoring the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The Fourth requires authorities like the NSA or the sheriffÂs departments of Collier or Charlotte or Lee or Palm Beach counties, for example, to prove to a judge BEFORE they do it that your privacy as an American citizen should be vio-lated by a search because the evidence is strong that you may have broken the law. IÂm in favor of that, and as far as I know, the sheriffs in question, who appre-ciate the U.S. Constitution, are also in favor of it. Unfortunately, records released by Edward Snowden show that Gen. Alexan-der (GA) doesnÂt give a fig for the Fourth. The general, who has previously claimed that his spy agency searches the records of Americans only based on links to foreign terrorists or people who might be terrorists, has in fact been collecting data on all of us and searching whatever he damn well feels like searching, when-ever he chooses. Not just email and cell-phone records, but social media records fall under his Hooverian eye Â„ Facebook activity. Which means that you are now probably linked to a long chain of potential ter-rorists who ÂlikeÂŽ such widely distributed Facebook offerings as this quote (but it could be one of thousands), attributed to that pinko terrorist, John Lennon: ÂWhen I was 5, my mother told me the most important thing was to be happy. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. ÂI want to be happy,Â I said. ÂYou donÂt understand the assignment,Â they told me. ÂYou donÂt understand life,Â I told them.ÂŽ So, you might wonder: By whose definition these days would you or John Len-non or anybody else be a terrorist, or a sympathizer? Not by a judgeÂs. No, youÂre judged worthy of tracking by a guy whose first name is General. A guy who doesnÂt have to answer to any civilians, apparently not even to another guy whose first name is President. As a self-proclaimed Âpatriot,ÂŽ Gen. Alexander is therefore not just a Gen. Ass, but an All-American Ass (AAA), referred to by some as a Triple A Ass. Congratulations, General, from all of us here on the other side Â„ sure as hell not your side Â„ of the Fourth Amend-ment. Q C o a w h t roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

A4 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 3-9, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY OPINIONThe impossibility of gun control rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly The Navy Yard massacre wonÂt revive the gun debate in Congress for a simple reason: There is no gun-control agenda this side of a total ban and confiscation that would have stopped Aaron Alexis. The Toomey-Manchin bill could have passed Congress unanimously. The assault-weapons ban could still be in place. Gun-controllers could have achieved their long-ago goal of bar-ring the private purchase of handguns. And every step of his mayhem at the Washington Navy Yard would have been unimpeded. The media rushed, based on erroneous reports from law enforcement, to place in his hands an AR-15, the popular rifle that has been used in mass shoot-ings before and that an assault-weapons ban would prohibit. The front page of the New York Daily News blared ÂSame gun, different slay.ÂŽ The newspaperÂs columnist Mike Lupi-ca worked himself into lathers of dud-geon over the offending gun. ÂThey call semiautomatics like this sports rifles,ÂŽ he fumed. ÂYou bet. Mostly for the sport of killing innocent people, and killing them fast.ÂŽ But according to law enforcement, Alexis used a shotgun, a weapon, as it happens, that has been endorsed and promoted by the vice president of the United States. At a Facebook town hall earlier in the year, Vice President Joe Biden urged a mother concerned about safety: ÂBuy a shotgun, buy a shotgun.ÂŽ This may be fine advice, but there should be no mistake: Shotguns are dan-gerous. When it comes to Âthe sport of killing innocent people,ÂŽ almost any gun will do, especially if it is in a permissive environment where no one else is likely to be armed. This makes a hash of the conceit that the government can ban a few select guns and make shooting ram-pages less likely. Other common panaceas would have had no effect, either. Alexis bought his shotgun from a duly-licensed dealer, not at a gun show. He passed a federal background check with no problem. He didnÂt have a high-capacity magazine. He reportedly got the handgun or hand-guns he also may have used in the attack after shooting a security officer. So the Navy Yard rampage demonstrates the essential sterility of the gun-control debate. It is true that James Holmes and Adam Lanza used AR-15s. But Seung-Hui Cho and Jared Loughner used 9 mm semiautomatic pistols. And Aaron Alexis used a shotgun. The com-mon theme is that they were all deeply disturbed young men whose acts of murder had a sick ening aspect of utter senselessness. The Daily News got it backward. Its headline should have read ÂDifferent gun, same slay.ÂŽ Maybe this time we can have a real debate about mental illness. When Aaron Alexis called the Rhode Island police a month ago to tell them that enemies were harassing him with a microwave machine, it was clear that he was suffering paranoid delusions and needed help. But the authorities let him go his merry way, evidently to sink deeper into the madness he mistook for reality. It needs to be easier to compel treatment for the mentally ill. There will be another Aaron Alexis. If we canÂt pre-dict what gun heÂll use, we already know his mental state. Q Â„ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Climate-change protests heat upLast week, far out in the Arctic Ocean, the Greenpeace vessel Arctic Sunrise approached a Russian oil-drill-ing platform and launched a nonviolent protest, with several protesters scaling the side of the platform. They want-ed to draw attention to a dangerous precedent being set. The platform, the Prirazlomnaya, owned by Russian gas giant Gazprom, is the first to begin oil production in the dangerous, ice-filled waters of the Arctic. The Russian gov-ernment responded swiftly and with force, deploying special-forces soldiers, their faces masked by balaclavas, threat-ening the peaceful Greenpeace activ-ists with automatic weapons, destroying their inflatable boats by slashing them, arresting 30 and towing the Greenpeace ship to the northern Russian port of Murmansk. At last report, the protesters faced a potential charge of piracy. This protest is remarkable for its sheer audacity. But it is by no means the sole protest lately against runaway fossil-fuel extraction and consumption. People are speaking up around the globe, demand-ing action to combat global warming. In North America, a broad coalition has been growing to stop the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, as well as to stop the exploitation of AlbertaÂs tar sands, which the pipeline is designed to carry. On Sept. 21, the last full day of summer in the Northern Hemisphere this year, thousands of people Âdrew the lineÂŽ on Keystone XL at protest gatherings around the continent. In Nebraska, they actually built a barn on the route of the proposed pipeline, which locals fear will spill oil onto the fragile sandhills ecosystem and pollute the vital Ogallala Aquifer. On the same day, the International WomenÂs Earth and Climate Summit met in Suf-fern, N.Y. It was a gathering of women from around the world, all renowned in their own way for fighting for urgent action on climate change. Among them was Melina Laboucan-Massimo, of the Cree indigenous nation, from northern Alberta. She described the impact of tar-sands extraction on her people: ÂThe tar sands cover over 141,000 square kilometers, about the size of England and Wales combined, or the size of Florida. The mines are larger than many large cities. This region we call the northern lungs of the planet, the boreal deciduous forest, and itÂs being deforested for the mining. We suffered what might be the worst oil spill ever in Canada, with 4.5 million liters of oil spilled, which destroyed ancestral lands. We call what is happening cultural and environmental genocide.ÂŽ The Keystone XL pipeline requires U.S. government approval, as it will cross the northern border from Can-ada on its way to the Gulf Coast. The approval process has been delayed, due to massive protests. After more than 1,250 people were arrested in front of the White House in 2011, in what was the largest act of civil disobedience in the U.S. in 30 years, President Barack Obama said he would delay the deci-sion. Since then, Friends of the Earth (FOE) has exposed a clear conflict of interest with the group hired by the U.S. State Department to conduct an environmental-impact study of Key-stone XL. FOE found that Environmen-tal Resources Management, a London-based consulting firm, covered up its business ties to TransCanada, the fossil-fuel corporation that will own Keystone XL. Likewise, another watchdog group, Oil Change International, just reported that ÂMichael Froman, the U.S. trade representative in charge of negotiating a variety of secretive Âfree tradeÂ agree-ments, is apparently siding with Big Oil in demanding that Europe weaken its climate laws.ÂŽ Oil ChangeÂs Steve Kretzmann explains, ÂUnless Europe weakens its climate laws, U.S. diesel exports, which will contain tar sands, will be less competitive.ÂŽ Canadian environmental activist Tzeporah Berman also was at the wom-enÂs summit. She spoke about how the Canadian government, under conserva-tive Prime Minister Stephen Harper, has silenced scientists in a desperate bid to stifle criticism of Keystone XL. She told me: ÂLast week in Canada, we had hundreds of scientists hit the streets in their lab coats protesting the federal government because they canÂt speak. They are being muzzled. To the extent that the eminent, journal Nature, last year, published an editorial saying it is time for Canada to set its scientists free.ÂŽ James Hansen, the former director of NASAÂs Goddard Institute for Space Studies, wrote on Keystone XL, ÂIf Can-ada proceeds, and we do nothing, it will be game over for the climate.ÂŽ The climate casualties are mounting, from the thousand-year flood that devastated entire towns in Colorado, to northern India, where floods and land-slides from one storm last June killed more than 5,700 people. The hope lies in the global grass-roots movement that is growing, demanding serious action to halt climate change before it is too late. Q Â„ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column.

When I sat down to write this article, my final ÂPet Connection,ÂŽ I again had one middle-aged dog and one young one (as well as three cats, one horse, two goats, two ducks and 23 chickens, but whoÂs counting?). In the years between that first column and this one, IÂve held many pets in my arms at our veterinarianÂs for the final good-bye, most of them dogs. Even though I know the signs of aging pets mean the hardest part of sharing a life with them is inching ever closer, I never regret having an old dog around. To me, an older dog is one of the most beautiful of lifeÂs many gifts to us. It doesnÂt matter what time has done to the animalÂs actual appearance Â„ an older dog looks special to me, and always will. I know IÂm not alone in this feeling, but I sometimes realize that I am in the minority when it comes to leveraging the strategies Â„ often simple and rela-tively inexpensive Â„ that can make an older dog feel years younger. This time can be a special one for both of you, but itÂs up to you to make the most of it. The place to start is with your veterinarian. With my senior pets, I go to twice-yearly comprehensive wellness exams, which include not only a com-plete physical and dental examination, but also diagnostic tests to see whatÂs going on Âunder the hood.ÂŽ With my last three dogs, those diagnostics paid off by revealing health issues that werenÂt yet showing, including cancer and renal failure. In all three cases, diagnosing, addressing and treating the conditions early allowed me to enjoy extra time with all three of these dogs. But even when tests reveal nothing abnormal, IÂve been able to take my veterinarianÂs advice based on those twice-yearly visits to improve the lives of my senior dogs. My veterinarian has been able to suggest dietary changes and nutritional supplements, for example, that eased the pain of arthritis. IÂve always worked in partnership with my veterinarian, and thatÂs never more help-ful than when managing an aging pet. Once I have a petÂs medical needs addressed, I look at changes to make at home. These include: Q Beds. Think soft. Think cushioned. Think low. Think heated. Your dog will thank you for all of these comforts, espe-cially in cold weather. Q Clothes. Older dogs, like older people, have a more difficult time main-taining their body temperature. This problem is even more pronounced in slender, short-coated breeds like the greyhound or whippet. So check out the sweater selection at your local pet-supply store. Q Ramps and steps. If your dogs are allowed on the couch and the bed, consider buying or building steps to help the dog who can no longer make it in one jump. A permanent ramp going down the back-porch step or a slide-out one to help your dog into the car will also be appreciated. The most important thing you can do for an older dog? Keep him moving, every day (avoid Âweekend warriorÂŽ syndrome), and keep his weight at or just below normal. For my dog Heather, I added a life preserver so she could continue to swim almost daily in the river near our home, providing her with low-impact exercise that wasnÂt over-whelming. In the 30 years since I started helping others help their pets, nothing makes me happier than thinking about how many wonderful pets IÂve known Â„ and not just my own, of course. You canÂt make time slow down, and you canÂt change the too-short life span of the animals we adore. But you can make the most of the time your pet has, and you should always try. Start by talking to your veterinarian, today. Q Â„ Gina Spadafori has retired from the Pet Connection team. Kim Campbell Thornton, an award-winning writer and the author of many pet-care books, has taken over as Dr. Marty BeckerÂs writing partner for Pet Connection.>>VelvetA 1-year-old spayed female domestic shorthair.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 3-9, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYPHOTO ILLUSTRATION BY ERIC RADDATZ / FLORIDA WEEKLY STORY BY ROGER WILLIAMS RWILLIAMS@FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM FACEBOOK WE'VE BECOME O CTOBER 3-9 2 01 1 1 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 ADDICTED TO Instead, theyÂre frequently people who have never met the befriended, but are free to peer through the electronic look-ing glass into the befriendedÂs life. They can also stare into the lives of just about anybody else who freely shares another online life with the original friend. ÂThe jury is still out on how the meaning of relationships will change with Facebook, but what happens is, we are now living in a fishbowl,ÂŽ says Russ Sabella, professor of counseling at Florida Gulf Coast University and the author of several books about social media and children. ÂPeople are sharing their health concerns, their marriage and family con-cerns and others, probably with the intent of doing it with a smaller audi-ence than they really have.ÂŽ That means that everything you put on Facebook is visible potentially to anyone who wants to see it. Although people know that, they forget it. ÂMy wife is always telling me, ÂYou donÂt get it, theyÂre not your friends,Â and sheÂs probably right,ÂŽ says Bruce Dash, a gregarious retired Palm Beach firefighter and food aficionado aiming to write for pay about the remarkable range of cuisines found across South Florida. Facebook may help him do that, he figures Â„ but that doesnÂt mean itÂs a boat he can depend on in the storm. ÂOf the 250 ÂfriendsÂ or so I have, I can probably count on about 20. Scott Simmons (a Florida Weekly writer and real, not just virtual friend of Mr. Dash) has 4,000 Âfriends.Â Of those, he can probably count on 1 to 2 percent for anything of substance.ÂŽ (Mr. Simmons actually has 720 friends.) So, suggests Professor Sabella, ÂHereÂs what you have to remember: Information is power, and can be used against you, whether by an insurance company that begins to better under-stand your health situation, or employ-ers who decide you arenÂt really who they thought you were, or somebody else.ÂŽ Somebody else such as the government. The Sunday New York Times reported that the NSA, a government spy agency, is tracking the Facebook activity of American citizens. Last year, though, all that sharing and using Â„ with its intensely target-ed advertising that relies on elaborate demographics and statistical profiles of user habits Â„ was worth $5.1 billion in revenue to the company, which supports 4,619 employees, according to statistics-brain.com. In a now-famous and even infamous story, a few Harvard students started Facebook, led by then-sophomore Mark Zuckerberg Â„ heÂs now worth about $16 billion, according to several sources. Now, almost one out of two people between the ages of 18 and 34 check it every morning when they wake up, some 28 percent of them before they even get out of bed. That doesnÂt mean young people take to it like bees to honey, however. ÂI think thereÂs a big difference in the way people use it depending on their age,ÂŽ says D.P. Workman, an 18-year-old whose relationship with Facebook rock-eted off the virtual launching pad before falling back to Earth like a space shuttle with second thoughts. (Mr. Workman is the stepson of the writer.) ÂA lot of older people use it to connect with people they used to know or are associated with but wouldnÂt want to be real friends with,ÂŽ he says. ÂBut a lot of younger people use it as a social connector Â„ except because thereÂs the disconnection from being in-person with someone, thereÂs a loss of inhibition, to some extent. So you see a lot people talking really tough, or trying to pick up girls or boys. ThereÂs a lot of pretty immature and pointless stuff. ÂSo IÂve stopped using it because IÂve come to the point where I really only want to connect with the people I see on a daily basis. And the ones I donÂt see I talk to on the phone. I deleted all the ÂfriendsÂ on my list, and I went from about 400 to 18. There was really no point in maintaining a profile at all.ÂŽ Not everybody feels that way.In the United States, where more than 310 million of us lived at last count in 2010, almost 240 million use the Inter-net, roughly 133.5 million of them getting online to check Facebook. ThatÂs a penetration of 43 percent, just over half of them female (53 percent). Where does that leave us in Florida, here where the sun shines almost every day Â„ here where beaches lie only min-utes from everyone, and a thriving cul-ture of good times awaits anyone who wants to get out of the house or office and into it? It leaves many of us glued to our devices Â„ the smart phones and pads and computers. Florida ranks fourth among Internet users in the country, with 14.8 million of the Sunshine StateÂs 18.7 million resi-dents getting on line regularly (almost 80 percent), but only 7.8 million, or about 42 percent, using Facebook. For deep Facebook penetration, try the state of Washington, where 57.7 percent of all residents use it (Illinois is second, with 54.8 percent, according to internetworldstats.com). Conversely, those who want to escape the species we might call Facebookians would do well to move to Delaware (only 24.2 per-cent of residents use it) or West Virginia (28.7 percent). ThatÂs in our world, more or less. Meanwhile, on the Planet Gossip Â„ a proverbial name for Washington, D.C. Â„ statistics show that more than 260 per-cent of the population uses Facebook. In other words, many people have multiple pages, which veteran Facebook users recommend for those who con-duct both personal and business lives on Facebook.The impact of Â‘friendÂ’shipThe effects of all this on any one person or all people remain uncertain Â„ but the possibilities do not. ÂEscapism,ÂŽ explains Stacey Chadwick Brown, a psychotherapist and director of Human Services at Florida SouthWestern State University, the former Edison State College. ÂItÂs healthier than liquor, better than Pac-man games, intellectual stimulation, humor, etc.ÂŽ But, she warns, ÂFacebook addiction is a real thing. It can serve as a distraction for those avoiding responsibilities. It can create a barrier to communication within relationships Â„ talking to oth-ers instead of (your) spouse. Emotional affairs can happen as well, via Face-ITS REACH IS VAST Â„ MORE THAN ONE OUT OF EVERY SEVEN PEOPLE, ABOUT 1.1 BILLION of us, use it. Half of us check in for an average of 20 minutes every day. We do it in 70 languages (translated by an army of contracted language experts), and each of us has an average of 130 Âfriends,ÂŽ a word partially co-opted nowadays to mean ÂacquaintanceÂŽ or even Âfamiliar stranger.ÂŽ In the world of Facebook Â„ a virtual company that will reach its 10th birthday Feb. 4, 2014 Â„ most friends are not friends in the traditional sense.
FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 3-9, 2013 NEWS A9book.ÂŽ Ms. Brown offered those thoughts in Facebook messages. Recognizing this, some people just plain refuse to call it Facebook, opting instead for a tag that gets to the heart of the matter. ÂThe friend who introduced me to the thing calls it ÂFacecrack.Â It can really suck you in,ÂŽ says Santiago De Choch, a widely traveled pundit and now organic farmer and gardener. ÂAre you kidding? You have most of your friends and family in the same place; you have all the bands and magazines and stuff you like feeding you constant updates; you have a number of exes posting pics of themselves wearing bikinis on the beach; you have the guilty schadenfreude of that Mr. Popular-ity or Ms. Bitch from senior high reduced to fat, balding wrecks; you have e-mail, videos, music, read-ing, shopping and working all for the price of one: free. Of course youÂll spend time there, sometimes too much.ÂŽ (To see Mr. De ChochÂs illuminating and funny analysis of Facebook, go to http://avocado-grove.wordpress.com/2013/09/25/facebook-follies/.) So you have to recognize Facebook as a tool, no better or worse than the person who uses it. Which sounds an awful lot like an argu-ment for guns. Can it be used as a weapon? Well, there is the potential for social (not physical) violence, says Stephanie Davis, the Florida Weekly writer and columnist who has turned socializing into a witty and even elegant community art under the ÂDowntown DivaÂŽ ban-ner. ÂI wish I had a doppelganger. IÂve always felt this way, but these days, Facebook has added a whole new element to wanting to be everywhere at once Â„ and itÂs even worse when I find out about a party after the fact,ÂŽ Ms. Davis reported. ÂRecently, I was perusing my Facebook newsfeed and saw that a friend had posted pictures from a recent soiree. They showed that all the guests (most of them mutual friends) clearly had a wonderful time. So where was I? Not invited, thatÂs where I was. I pouted as I clicked ÂLikeÂŽ on a few of the pics just so theyÂd know I noticed.ÂŽThe value of Â‘friendÂ’shipThe heart of Facebook, though, remains a contemporary miracle of sorts, not to mention a fre-quent pleasure, for many Floridians, from the traditionally anti-social to the uber-social. It can help people, too. By charming people, by warming them with instant, shared experience, ÂIt can help alleviate depression, create endorphin action, create happy hor-mones and serotonin production Â„ itÂs biologically significant that you can laugh. ItÂs biologically significant to feel connected,ÂŽ says the therapist, Mrs. Brown. The retired firefighter, Bruce Dash, knows the truth of this well. ÂFirefighters donÂt do a good job of preparing for afterwards,ÂŽ he explains. ÂAs a 25-year firefighter, I had a huge network, married with three kids, pets, and my phone was full. All of a sudden I went home and my phone turned off. ÂSo I went from a busy, happy, talkative person to having the rug pulled out from under me.ÂŽ Then later, he recalls, ÂFacebook came along. I love Facebook. But if you have no real determination, no guts, and youÂre just a homebody, itÂs only a non-moneymaking way to communi-cate with people who you donÂt know.ÂŽ In short, its use requires Âbalance,ÂŽ a word used both by Professor Sabella, and by Madison Mitchell, a spokes-woman for Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida. Mrs. Mitchell recently posted this affectionate greeting on Facebook: ÂI canÂt believe my handsome man is going to be 40 a week from today! Noah, youÂve still got it Âƒ canÂt wait to cel-ebrate it with a long weekend of loving! Oh, and today also marks seven weeks of wedded bliss!ÂŽ ThatÂs probably as intimate as sheÂll ever get in social media, she says. ÂIn some ways we have lost some privacy, in our relationships on Face-book. I have to remind myself, if you put something out there, they are going to see it,ÂŽ she says. So sheÂs careful, but a user nevertheless who does not see Facebook as a detractor from her street socializing. ÂMy 10th high school reunion is coming in 2014, but I already know what everybody is doing,ÂŽ she explains. ÂI know whoÂs married, who has kids, who might be getting a divorce Â„ but IÂm still going to the reunion. ÂYou have to balance it. I do a lot of Facebook, but I am always busy outside of it. You still have to go out there and socialize, it doesnÂt take the place of that. ÂTo the people IÂm not close to, IÂll send a Facebook message Â„ congratu-lations on the baby, or the marriage. But the people IÂm close to, I go to.ÂŽ In effect, Mrs. Mitchell has grown up with Facebook, since her 10th reunion will also be FacebookÂs 10th anniversary. But the perspective for Cynthia Mott is broader. A writer and native Floridi-an, she relies on a wide circle of all-ages family and friends who tease, chat and share experiences the way they might at a picnic on the Peace River in Charlotte County, close to their homes. For Ms. Mott, Facebook is nothing more or less than the next step. ÂFor me, itÂs just another form of ever-morphing communication,ÂŽ she explains. ÂWhen I started riding in cars as a child, we only had whoever happened to be riding in the car with you, which in my case always included two annoy-ing younger sisters who routinely stuck something over my line on our too-small backseat! After sisters came CBs, then Motorola radios, (then) wired into the car big bag phones, (then) small portable cell phones, and now a whole bouquet of other means of instant com-munication and contact. I see Facebook as just another tool in the ever-evolv-ing, distance-shrinking world of human contact.ÂŽ Sometimes that contact is about personal living, and sometimes itÂs about business Â„ with a personal touch. Melissa Vogt, marketing for the Broadway Palm Theatre in Fort Myers, always responds within minutes to con-tacts on the theaterÂs Facebook page Â„ which isnÂt as easy as it sounds. A marketing whiz, Ms. Vogt has now built up a huge following on Facebook. ÂWhat would happen if Facebook vanished tomorrow? IÂd lose 7,200 friends,ÂŽ she says, sighing in mock horror. ThatÂs not going to happen, of course.ÂFrom a business standpoint itÂs such a great tool. You could create a full-time position for social media in general, easily. ÂItÂs free Â„ it costs you nothing, except for time. And itÂs fun for people Â„ they can have it on their phone, their tablet or the computer. They donÂt have to pick up the phone and ask questions anymore. ÂTrying to gain more Âlikes,Â on our business page Â„ thatÂs a daily grind. You have to engage your audience. Post things that they are going to find interesting. ÂOur biggest thing is contests Â„ itÂs the easiest way to gain a large group of fans. You give away tickets or do silly things. Right now weÂre running ÂThe Worst First Date Story,Â which is in con-junction with an off-Broadway show, ÂYou Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up.Â So our page is going crazier than usual.ÂŽ Is all the new success Â„ the new friendships, the new higher interest, the new community of humans Â„ a result of the phenomenon known as Facebook? Everybody admits that nobody really knows. But for many, including Ms. Vogt, the anecdotal evidence is strong. ÂWe had a Billy Joel (tribute band) concert last year, and it was a really tough sell for us,ÂŽ she says. ÂAnd I was in the restroom, and I heard a lady a couple of stalls over talking. She said, ÂIÂm so glad I saw this on Facebook.Â ÂEvery so often that happens, and it feels so good.ÂŽ Q Â“What scares me about Facebook are loose cannons Â— people who donÂ’t think before they write something on Facebook that could hurt people. I think of Facebook as sort of like a big cocktail party. Everything you say, everybody can hear it. ThereÂ’s no whispering, no going into a corner.Â” Â— Stephanie Davis, Florida WeeklyÂ’s social commentator Â“The jury is still out on how the meaning of relationships will change with Facebook, but what happens is, we are now living in a fishbowl ... People are sharing their health concerns, their marriage and family concerns and others, probably with the intent of doing it with a smaller audience than they really have.Â”Â— Russ Sabella, professor of counseling at Florida Gulf Coast University and the author of several books about social media and children Stephanie Davis, Florida WeeklyÂs social commentator, offers a few thoughts about the Facebook commu-nity in which she serves informally as a master of ceremonies: ÂI wondered: How many couples have gotten together who had known each other in elementary or middle schools? So I put it out on Facebook, and just about everybody who responded knew at least one. I think I know of 10. The thing is, that beautiful girl you knew in school, or the one you took to the eighth-grade dance? You were never supposed to see her again. But Face-book changed that. ÂSome relationships grow deeper. So maybe thereÂs a lady at work, and you donÂt really know her but youÂre Face-book friends, and you get to see the things she likesÂƒ IÂve seen friendships like that grow into dating because of Facebook. ÂWhat scares me about Facebook are loose cannons Â„ people who donÂt think before they write something on Facebook that could hurt people. I think of Facebook as sort of like a big cocktail party. Everything you say, everybody can hear it. ThereÂs no whispering, no going into a corner. ÂSo I have almost 2,000 friends and I keep different lists. I have a list for loose cannons, for example; they donÂt see everything I post. ÂI have a separate list of Republicans and Democrats, too. If I post something that is more liberally bent, the Republi-cans wonÂt see it. IÂm not interested in arguing (politics) with them Â„ whatÂs the point? And I donÂt want somebody saying, ÂShe supports Obama so there-fore IÂm not going to read her column.Â I donÂt post a lot of stuff about politics, anyway. They donÂt want my opinion and IÂm not interested in theirs.ÂŽ Q Stephanie Davis on Facebook

These individuals live with pain from injuries sustained in battle, and in most cases expensive pharmaceutical drugs do not provide sufficient pain relief, the company said in a prepared statement. LifeWaveÂs donation, with a retail value in excess of $2.1 million, will include health technologies designed to deliver these veterans fast, natural, and drug-free pain relief. In addition, LifeWave staff, medical doctors and support personnel will be made avail-able to the MOPH for the purpose of providing expertise on product usage as well as other services. Thomas Burke of Palm Beach Gardens first developed LifeWaveÂs rela-tionship with the MOPH and has been responsible for organizing nearly all of the humanitarian aid LifeWave has provided during its 11-year history as a company, the statement said. The current membership of the MOPH is about 45,000, and most of those who work in the organi-zation are volunteers. The majority of money donated reaches those in need. It is estimated that more than 1,000 Purple Heart recipients will be able to experience drug-free pain relief each month because of the LifeWave dona-tions, specifically the patch technolo-gies IceWave and Aeon.

Keeping the lights onBuilding the capacity of nonprofit organizations is hardly a new idea. Grantmakers recognized long ago the added value of investing in the organizational capacity of their cur-rent and prospective grantees. Yet they also tend to be miserly toward paying expenses they label as over-head ÂextraneousÂŽ to the project, or activities they are willing to fund. Administrative expenses are nonethe-less important to an organizationÂs stability. Tension in budget negotia-tions between funders and prospec-tive grantees is often derived from the surgical removal or reduction of line items in project budgets that are Â„ at least in the mind of the funder Â„ not directly related to project implemen-tation Â„ such as the light bill. Nonprofits are keenly aware going into this process they had best be pre-pared to justify their budget request. The stakes are high. If, after doing the deal, the nonprofit leaves too much on the table, they wind up subsidizing with unrestricted dollars what a funder cleverly escapes hav-ing to pay for. Such an o utcome is a chronic complaint by nonprofits struggling to sustain their organiza-tions. To resist the financial haircut, they often succumb to and contract a severe case of Âproject-itusÂŽ Â„ a strategy intended to transform what is ÂoldÂŽ in general support costs into what is ÂnewÂŽ again, by projecting these costs as project expenses. Charity watchdogs exacerbate the situation. They promulgate the conventional wisdom that the more anorexic the spending on administra-tive expenses, the more fashionably fundable a charity. Horror stories are partly responsible: Unethical chari-ties cajole with sad stories a gener-ous contribution, only to do a bait and switch on how gifts are actually used. Of a dollar given, a nickel goes to those in need and ninety-five cents pays the administrative costs of the charity carpetbagger. It is a terrible fraud. Its remedy is transparency that allows a donor to make an informed judgment about a charityÂs finances. The unintended consequence of mak-ing, for donors, simple work of a com-plex judgment, i.e., less is more when it comes to administrative expenses is that charities get short-changed of the legitimate expense of dollars to underwrite their qualification as effi-cient, fiscally responsible, effectively managed organizations with compe-tent, professional staff. GuideStar, BBB Wise Giving Alliance, and Charity Navigator, the coun-tryÂs leading repositories of informa-tion on nonprofits, have recently had a serious change of heart on this mat-ter. They jointly issued an open letter to AmericaÂs donors to correct the misconception they themselves help create: The proportion of expenses spent by an organization for overhead is an appropriate metric to measure an organizationÂs efficiency or wor-thiness for funding. The Great Reces-sion exposed how anemic nonprofits are when faced with challenges to their economic stability. Many foun-dations took stock and adopted in reply a reversal in policy to allow requests for general support. Another fortuitous o utcome of their enlightenment was the deepening of resolve by foundations to invest more in capacity building. The impact of the recession on nonprofits left few illusions about the depth of the structural and organi-zational changes required if nonprof-its are to be sustained in such altered circumstances. Two area funders have joined forces in Palm Beach County with the launch of a bold, new approach to helping charities evo lve into stronger, better-financed version of themselves. Allegany Franciscan Ministries is a regional, non-profit Catholic organization whose mission it is to improve the overall health of individuals by increasing access to health services and information. The funder has invested more than $60 million in more than 1,300 orga-nizations in its multi-county service area, which is inclusive of the county. AlleganyÂs partner in the initiative is the Quantum Foundation, a private foundation with more than $130 mil-lion in assets. Quantum Foundation supports health care projects within Palm Beach County and it is the larg-est healthcare funder in the county. The two foundations jointly funded an ÂEarned Income Training and Busi-ness Planning InitiativeÂŽ for charities. Following the training sessions, four nonprofits were selected to receive 14 weeks of Âpersonalized coaching and technical assistanceÂŽ with the No Margin, No Missions consulting team to develop a business plan tailored to an earned income strategy specific to each group. The groups select-ed were 211 Palm Beach/Treasure Coast, Center for Independent Liv-ing Options (CILO), Health Council of Southeast Florida and Palm Beach Rehabilitation Center. The four orga-nizations will soon convene to pres-ent their completed business plans, share what lessons they have learned and identify the challenges ahead to generating and diversifying revenue and scaling up the impact of their work. What they learn will be helpful to all nonprofits struggling with these issues and funders, too.

New Mandel JCC in Palm Beach Gardens debuts health and wellness classes SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Mandel JCC, which opened in late August, has introduced an extensive health and wellness program, with more than 100 classes available each week. The commu-nity center offers group fitness classes, per-sonal training, small group training, large-scale and specialty wellness programs, and healthy living lectures for adolescents to seniors. Classes like Chair Yoga and Tai Chi are offered for those who prefer a gentle work-out, while Cycle Fusion, Butts N Gutts, and Fitcamp are available for adults ready to kick it up a notch. The JCC also offers yoga, pilates, Zumba and other popular workouts. Most group classes take place in the fitness studio; however, the Mandel JCC also offers pool-based classes, such as Aqua Zumba and Aquafit, at the expansive aquatics center. Classes start most days at 7 a.m., with offer-ings throughout the day including lunch-time and until 8 p.m.; a complete schedule is available at jcconline.com/Mandel. ÂWeÂre immensely proud of the caliber of health, wellness and fitness classes we can now offer the community,ÂŽ said Mindy Hanken, director of the Mandel JCC Palm Beach Gardens. ÂRather than provid-ing treadmills and elliptical machines like typical gyms, the JCC is focused on more contemporary, functional fitness offerings that provide an excellent workout during entertaining classes taught by highly quali-fied instructors.ÂŽ The Mandel JCC also offers Specialty Wellness Classes that run in sessions so participants can more deeply benefit from a focused curriculum. Specialty classes include Parent N Me Yoga, Prenatal Wellness, Ladies Fit Social Club, Couch 2 5K, Stroller Fitness, and more. There are also several specialty class-es that are taught by Prime Time Sports Training (PTST). Some of these classes, like QuickFit, are designed for beginners. Others, like Miami Flex and R.I.P.P.E.D., are geared toward more advanced students and professional athletes. Children are also encouraged to join in the fitness fun, with a variety of classes and sports leagues available for all dif-ferent ages during eight to 10-week ses-sions. Gymnastics, soccer and many other classes are open to kids age two through fifth grade. Elementary and middle school children can choose from a number of specialty classes, including martial arts, extreme dance, and tennis. With the addition of this multi-faceted fitness and wellness program, Man-del JCC named Catie Fagan its Wellness Coordinator in spring 2013. In this role, she is responsible for planning, executing, recruiting, overseeing, and maintaining all aspects of the wellness, fitness, and aquat-ics programs at the Mandel JCC.

Dengue fever cases rise; hereÂ’s how to avoid itWith cases of Dengue fever on the rise in our surrounding communities, it is more important than ever to protect yourself from those disease-carrying mosquitos. This isnÂt easy, as for many of us, stepping outside at night means being swarmed by the pesky insects. Aside from the itchy bites, mosquitoes can cause serious health prob-lems. New cases of Dengue fever were recently announced, bringing the total count in the Rio-Jensen Beach areas to 20. Thirteen of the patients are Martin County residents, two are visitors from out of state, four are from St. Lucie County and one is from Palm Beach County. Dengue fever was eradicated from most of the United States until recently, but it is still widespread in the Caribbe-an and other tropical parts of the world. The disease can cause body aches, high fever and rashes. The most severe form of Dengue can cause bleeding and death. The best way to prevent mosquitoborne illnesses such as Dengue fever is to prevent mosquitoes from biting. Here are some steps you can take to keep you and your family safe from mosquitoes: Q Use an insect repellant containing DEET, picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus when you are outdoors. Follow package directions on how to apply the repellant and how often to reapply. Q Proper clothing can keep mosquitoes at bay. If possible, wear long-sleeved shirts, long pants and socks to keep mosquitoes from reaching exposed skin. Mosquitoes can bite through lighter-weight fabrics, so you may need to spray your clothing with insect repellant. Q Take extra precautions during the evening and early morning when mosquitoes are more active. Q Mosquito-proof your home by installing well-fitting screens on doors and windows and draining any stand-ing water near your house. Look around your house for clogged gut-ters, empty flower pots and other containers where water can stand and allow mosquitoes to breed. Q If there are areas near your home such as vacant lots, get your neigh-bors together for a clean-up day where you work together to elimi-nate mosquito-friendly environ-ments. By taking these steps, you will have a much higher chance of avoiding buzzing mosquitoes and keeping you and your family healthy. If you do, however, develop symptoms of Dengue fever, Palm Beach Gar-dens Medical CenterÂs ER staff is ready to care for you 24/7. The ER team specializes in treating all kinds of emergencies Â„ from minor injuries to critical care, from emergency illness to severe injuries. And, our newly renovated emergency department is designed to help better serve you by delivering efficient care in a comfortable setting. For a free physician referral, please call 625-5070.

And that may be because men are most frequently diagnosed with skin, prostate, lung and colon cancers. But breast cancer accounts for approximately 2,240 new cancer cases per year and causes roughly 410 deaths annually. The most common symptoms of male breast cancer include a lump or swelling in the chest area, nipple dis-charge and skin dimpling or pucker-ing. Men most likely to develop breast cancer are between the ages of 60 and 70, have a family history of the disease or a BRCA2 gene mutation, have been exposed to radiation, have high estro-gen levels caused by liver disease, have a genetic condition such as Klinefel-terÂs syndrome or are overweight or inactive. ÂMen forget that their breast tissue can become cancerous because society has labeled breast cancer as a wom-anÂs disease,ÂŽ Dr. Marilyn Raymond, medical director of the Comprehen-sive Breast Center at Good Samaritan Medical Center, said in a statement. ÂMen can and do get breast cancer and should go to their doctor and insist on a mammogram if they feel a lump.ÂŽ The long-term prognosis for men with breast cancer is similar to that for women diagnosed with the disease. But male breast cancer often is identified at a later stage, making it more difficult to treat. ThatÂs why itÂs impor-tant for men who are more suscep-tible to developing breast cancer to be proactive and take steps to develop a breast-screening program. A number of tests may be used to diagnose the disease: Q A clinical breast exam can detect lumps or determine the size and loca-tion of the mass. Q A mammogram can show images of the breast tissue using a series of X-rays. Q A breast ultrasound can help evaluate an abnormality using sound waves to generate images of structures inside the body. Q A nipple discharge examination can detect cancerous cells in fluid from the nipple. Q A biopsy can confirm a cancer diagnosis and help determine if fur-ther treatment is needed. There are three types of biopsies: fine-needle aspiration biopsy extracts a few cells from the suspicious breast lump, core needle biopsy removes a tissue sample for analysis, surgical biopsy removes all or part of the breast lump. If cancer is detected, additional tests may be ordered. ÂMen with breast cancer should speak to their doctor about genetic testing,ÂŽ Dr. Raymond said. ÂA signifi-cant amount of male breast cancer is due to the inherited BRCA mutation.ÂŽ Doctors may perform an estrogen and progesterone receptor test to eval-uate how the cancer cells multiply and if hormone therapy may stop the can-cer from growing. Human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 testing mea-sures a growth factor protein that can cause cancer cells to spread rapidly. In this case, monoclonal antibody therapy could halt the spread of cancer. Treatment options for male breast cancer depend on many factors, including the size and location of the cancer, whether it has spread, the type of cancer and the manÂs age and over-all health. Chemotherapy uses drugs, taken either orally or by injection, to kill cancer cells. Radiation therapy uses high-energy X-rays to target can-cer cells. Hormone therapy may help destroy cancer cells that have spread or shrink breast tumors. Surgical operations include a:Q Simple mastectomy Â„ removal of all breast tissue is removed. Q Modified radical mastectomy Â„ removal of the entire breast and some underarm lymph nodes. Q Radical mastectomy Â„ removal of all breast tissue, lymph nodes and chest wall muscle. While male breast cancer is rare, it can be successfully treated when detected early.

Q ADVERTISEMENT Ask The Health & Beauty Experts ASK THE COSMETIC SURGEON DifÂ“ culty breathing through your nose Question: Doctor, why canÂ’t I breathe through my nose?Answer: Â“SinusÂ”, nasal obstruction, facial pressure and headaches are the most common presenting complaints I see in my practice. Frequently, the patient has tried over the counter antihistamines (zyrtec, allegra, claritin), decongestants (sudafed, the Â“DÂ” in combination drugs) and nasal sprays. There are two parameters that affect air passing through your nose: 1. Bone/cartilage2. Nasal lining If you have a broken nose, and /or a deviated septum you will have a narrowed air passage and notice one side is always blocked or Â“tightÂ”. If the lining of your nose swells as it reacts to the air you breathe there is more obstruction. The antihistamines dry up the mucous and reduce the post nasal drip. The decongestants constrict the blood vessels in the lining of your nose and keep them from swelling. We examine the nose to see if the septum is blocking one side, and/or is the lining engorged and blocking your nose further? A sinus CT diagnoses sinusits. Treatment is based upon the diagnosis. For sinusitis, a new in office procedure called balloon sinuplasty is done with or without a septoplasty. As the sinuses are opened with the balloon, headaches, chronic sinusitis, and facial pressure are relieved! Most insurance companies, includng mediciare, pay for this treatment. A rapid 2 day recovery time makes this a safe and effective procedure.

What should I do? Answer: If you fear going to the dentist, you are not alone. Dentalphobia, or fear of the dentist, is one of the most common fears, second only to public speaking. The key to coping with dental anxiety is to discuss your fears with your dentist. Once your dentist knows your fears, he will be better able to work with you to determine the best ways to make you less anxious and more comfortable. The good news is that today there are a number of strategies that can be tailored to the individual to reduce fear, anxiety, and pain. You may have heard of Sedation Den-tistry described in a variety of ways: Â“ Anxi-ety Free DentistryÂ”, Â“Mild Oral SedationÂ”, or Â“Twilight State.Â” Some dentists offer mild oral sedation which involves prescribing a sedative to relax & reduce stress. All of these procedures refer to you being given a seda-tive before treatment. For patients who want to be totally unaware of the treatment or are in need of longer dental procedures, IV sedation is the preferred treatment. IV Sedation is highly reliable, safe & effective for comfort & amnesia during all types of dental treatment. IV Sedation can only be administered by a Board Certified Sedation Dentist, and itÂ’s onset is immediate & can be increased easily & rapidly to meet the individualÂ’s needs. This is a huge advan-tage compared to oral sedation. Dr. Jay Ajmo earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Emory University School of Dentistry in 1986. He is an active member of The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and designated Master Cosmetic Dentist by the Rosenthal Institute for Aesthetic Dentistry.HeÂ’s been awarded Diplomate Certification from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Diplomate from the American Dental Implant Association and a Mastership from the Misch International Implant Institute.

Q Giving, receiving criticism requires humility, attentionArlene believed it had started out innocently enough. With the best of intentions, sheÂd approached her son Tim, with the Sunday classified section in her hand. Before Arlene could open her mouth, Tim said: ÂMom, I told you. I have my OWN way of looking for jobs. Please stay out of it.ÂŽBut Arlene couldnÂt let it go. ÂIÂm only trying to help. My friend Mary found a job last month by scouring the classifieds.ÂŽTim replied in a controlled, but angry way. ÂMom, get off my back. I said I have my own system. No one goes to the classifieds anymore. EverythingÂs online these days. Please stay out of it!ÂŽNow, Arlene was on the defensive. ÂI donÂt like your attitude. I was just trying to be helpful. Maybe we Âold-timersÂ know a thing or two about looking for jobs.ÂŽ Before she knew it, Arlene was adding things she couldnÂt take back: ÂYour father and I have been doing everything we can to be supportive. We havenÂt asked a dollar for rent. You donÂt even show any gratitude.ÂŽ Tim stormed out of the house, m utt ering under his breath. Arlene hated having words with her son. She knew how demoralizing it had been for Tim to approach his parents with the news heÂd been let go by his employer, admitting he couldnÂt afford to live independently. Tim had worked hard to get his degree and had been so proud to land this job. HeÂd always been conscientious and considerate of the family. Arlene genuinely understood that her son wasnÂt feeling good about himself. And, in fact, Tim had been trying desperately to find another position. She wanted the kind of relationship where Tim felt close enough to confide in her but somehow or other they were always at odds. If only Tim werenÂt so touchy.Of course, none of us like to be criticized. It feels uncomfortable. And, weÂre placed in the unenviable position of considering some unflattering things about ourselves. So, itÂs not uncom-mon to react defensively, protecting ourselves with righteous indignation. We may feel victimized, offering jus-tified excuses, or worse yet, deflect responsibility by accusing our accuser of more egregious wrongdoings. Sadly, this only serves to escalate the conflict, and sorely gets in the way of closeness and collaboration. From time to time, most of us may get caught up in the scenario of framing the other personÂs behavior as unreason-able. We donÂt like to consider that we may also be part of the problem. When we have the courage to look within our-selves and to consider how we may be contributing to the difficulties, we can actually open the door to more reward-ing relationships. Paying attention to our defensive reactions may be a first step in soft-ening the conflict. We should remind ourselves that the other person has something important to tell us, but may not always deliver the message in a pal-atable way. If we find ourselves feeling flustered or on the spot, we can cer-tainly acknowledge this by saying: ÂYou know, IÂm feeling on the defensive here. IÂm having difficulty listening to you right now. I know what you have to say is important. Why donÂt we take a break, and then start over.ÂŽ When we address the defensiveness head on, we may be able to deflect a lot of the animosity. IÂm not suggesting that itÂs easy for Arlene, in the fictionalized example, to tolerate rude or disruptive behavior, nor should she have to. However, letÂs consider another way she might have answered Tim. ÂTim, IÂve clearly upset you. I know how frustrating this job search has been. I guess I can seem pushy when I keep offering suggestions. IÂll step back a bit, but please know IÂm here as a sounding board.ÂŽ While thereÂs never a guarantee this approach will make the difference, Tim is much more likely to be forthcoming (and open to critical feedback) when his mother owns her part. Defensive exchanges can be further minimized if a person begins with a pos-itive statement. There may have been value if Arlene had begun by acknowl-edging what she admires about Tim. She would have been far more likely to avoid getting his defenses up, and would have increased the likelihood of having a reasonable discussion. Of course, this is only effective if Arlene is sincere and truly means what she has said. Patroniz-ing statements will be patently obvious and can only serve to antagonize the situation. We are certainly more effective if we are able to approach our important relationships, with humility and a mes-sage of receptivity. It takes tremendous restraint to stay present in a relation-ship, while the other person is criticiz-ing us. However, when we are able to say: ÂPlease tell me what is important to you. I am willing to listen to criticism and hear you out,ÂŽ we are letting them know how much we care and that our relationship can tolerate differences of opinion.

A22 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 3-9, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Fed plays Â‘Red Light, Green LightÂ’ with the marketDomestic and international investors are always mindful of the U.S. central bank, the Federal Reserve, since there is long-standing history that investors are best to align themselves on the FedÂs side of the investment divide. Inves-tors generally donÂt want to find them-selves in an investment position that is opposite to the central bankÂs intent for the economy and for the bond/equity markets. Hence, the bull market expres-sions: ÂDonÂt fight the FedÂŽ and ÂThe FedÂs got your back.ÂŽ How does an investor know what the FedÂs intent is? The Fed often gives very clear signals, akin to the childhood game of ÂRed light! Green light!ÂŽ If the Fed takes actions to lower interest rates and ease credit conditions (or suggests it will do so), then most often this is a Âgreen lightÂŽ for equity and bond inves-tors. If the Fed takes action to raise rates and tighten credit, it is correspondingly a Âred lightÂŽ for bonds, certainly, and possibly for equity investors. For the past four-plus years, the U.S. central bank has been the Âwind in the sailsÂŽ for bond and equity investors. Through its several-fold quantitative easing, the Fed has been at the epicen-ter of the supposed economic recovery. This recovery has been weak, and accomplished through great incurrence of debt on the FedÂs balance sheet. The U.S. equity and bond markets could be at important inflection points. The U.S. Bond market has been in a bull market of rising prices and lower rates for close to 30 years. The U.S. equity market has been in bull mode since March 2009, having experienced one of the longest, strongest, sustained percentage advances in the past 100 years, possibly due to all the FedÂs mon-etary measures. In slang investment ver-nacular, these markets are Âlong in the tooth.ÂŽ If this is on investorsÂ minds, it is very much on the FedÂs mind as well. Reading the mind of the Fed has been easier in the past. The Fed has historically been straightforward about intent and actions (whether popular or not) and has moved decisively and not suddenly retreated upon signaling a monetary policy reversal. Also, what makes reading the FedÂs signal clear is the economic context within which the signal is given. For instance, if the economic environment was in recession and the Fed was waving the flag of lower rates as its monetary goal, then chances were pretty good that rates would go lower and the bond and equity bull markets could charge ahead. However, if the economy was strong and the Fed was declaring the equity market had frothy valuations (for exam-ple, the dot-com bubble) then chances were good that the Fed would take actions to raise interest rates, trim equi-ty expectations and cut off bond gains. Despite historically greater clarity, investors who are now trying to read the FedÂs tea leaves are very confused. Investors think they hear and see the Fed signal that interest rates will rise Â„ only to hear that interest rates will not rise, and vice versa. Easing will be tapered until easing wonÂt be tapered. On-again and off-again messages give the investing public concern that the Fed wants to get out of the business of easing and would exit this role, except that the credit markets would (and recently did) sell off deeply. Investors have also become confused by leadership at the Fed. After many years under Ben Bernanke, years that made for big equity and bond gains, President Obama made it clear that the Fed chairman would soon be replaced and a short list of candidates was being developed, without valid reasons given. Succession to Bernanke only made Fed policy more unclear, as some can-didates were dovish and others want the Fed to put on the brakes. The cre-dentials of the candidates for replace-ment seemed to take a backseat to the disposition of the candidates on interest rates. Now that hawkish Larry Summers has declined candidacy, it appears that dovish Janet Yellen will be appointed. And so went the bond market; up, then down, then up, etc. Investors often incorrectly make an assumption that the Fed really has ÂnailedÂŽ quantitative easingÂs cause/ strategy and effect. They assume that the Fed has its monetary manipulations down to a science. However, it seems that the Fed recognizes it is easing in unchartered waters; Bernanke et al are figuring out the next part of their game plan with some temerity. For instance, this summerÂs statement that QE would be tapered by end of the year was not wanted by the bond market and it had a major sell-off. So the FedÂs strategy then reversed. The Fed said that tapering would not happen and then the bond market rallied. So, the Fed is feeling the markets out to see how much price sensitivity there is to its withdrawal of easing. Bond holders found out the hard way that the market is highly sensitive to a change in Fed policy. Q Â„ Jeannette Showalter, CFA is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems.

You may find some special pieces originally given away as product premiums dur-ing the early 20th century. There was no television, and radio was just getting developed, so ÂadsÂŽ often were objects that would be kept by the family. Color-ful trade cards, sets of pressed glass or Depression glass, dishes of all kinds, souvenir spoons, printed handkerchiefs and even furniture were available. A small cup we inherited puzzled us for many years. The 33/8-inch-high porcelain cup is decorated with bright pink carna-tions and gold trim. But inside the rim of the cup, where you see it when finished drinking, are the words ÂArmourÂs Bouil-lon Cubes.ÂŽ The underside of the cup says ÂC.T. Altwasser.ÂŽ The maker was easy to identify. We list a few pieces of its china in each edition of ÂKovelsÂ Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide.ÂŽ C. Tielsch & Co. of Altwasser, Germany, was in business in Silesia, Germany, from 1845 to 1945. Armour & Co. was founded in Chicago in 1867 as a meat-packing plant. It also made butt ons, glue, fertilizer, margarine and other items from by-products. The Armour brand name still is used in the United States for meat and other products. Bouillon cubes were originally used to turn hot water into a tasty drink that aided digestion. Bouil-lon was also used in cooking, just as it is today. The Armour cup must have been a popular premium, because many are still available at flea mar-kets and shops. They sell for $20 to $25 each. Q: I found a 25-piece set of Golden Wheat dishes in my motherÂs attic. The mark on each dish includes the words ÂGold-en Wheat, Made in USA, 22K Gold, Oven Proof,ÂŽ with a sheaf of wheat on each side. The set includes six dinner plates, six salad plates and a few serv-ing pieces, but only a couple cups, saucers and soup bowls. What is the set worth? A: Golden Wheat dishes were premiums first inserted in boxes of Duz detergent during the 1950s. Each month, a different packaged dish was inserted in a box of detergent. The pattern is a realistic image of five standing sheaves of wheat, and the rim of each dish was edged in gold. There is disagreement about the company that made the dishes, because the very same mark was used by Scio Pottery of Scio, Ohio; Homer Laughlin China Co. of Newell, W.Va.; and French Saxon China Co. of Sebring, Ohio. It is possible all three pottery companies made dishes for Duz. Because so many dishes were made and so many people saved them, they are not rare and prices are low. Another problem is that defining a ÂsetÂŽ is impossible because many of the dishes made it into homes one at a time. We have seen a 22-piece set offered for $35. Q: We were left a large figural owl by my wifeÂs grandpar-ents. ItÂs about 3 feet tall and weighs 40-50 pounds. It appears to be made of fired clay. The base looks like tile used for roofing or old piping. ItÂs marked ÂEvens & Howard, St. Louis, Mo.ÂŽ We donÂt intend to sell it, but weÂre interested in the background. A: Evens & Howard Fire Brick Co. was incorporated in 1867, but a brick-works had been operating at the com-panyÂs location since 1837. Fire bricks were used to line fireplaces, furnaces, fireboxes, ovens, etc. The bricks were made from clay dug from mines in St. Louis and Glencoe, Mo. The clay was weathered for at least six months before it was made into bricks. The company began making sewer pipe in 1858. It also made fire-clay chimney tops, hot-air flues and floor tiles. Evidently the company also made figures like yours. Evens & Howard remained in business until at least the second decade of the 20th century. Q: I have a set of old metal ice tongs marked ÂGifford Wood Co.ÂŽ I bought them at an estate sale more than 50 years ago. Can you estimate age and value? A: Any tool marked ÂGifford Wood Co.ÂŽ was not made earlier than 1905, the year Gifford Brothers of Hudson, N.Y., merged with William T. Wood & Co. of Arlington, Mass. The company specialized in tools to carry and handle ice. Gifford Wood Co. ice tongs often are offered for sale online. Prices range from $20 to $50, depending on size, quality and condition. Tip: Do not put wax on a wooden toy to preserve it. The wax may yellow and disturb any markings or paper decora-tion.

The woman was a famous restaura-teur, and on that particular night she was glowing and beautiful, pregnant with her first child at 41. My friend and this woman began talking about relationships, and the restaurateur admitted that only two years before she had given up on the prospect of ever finding love. A stunning woman from a large Italian family, she had imagined that her life would be filled by a husband and children. She never anticipated that at 39 she would still be single. And though her professional life was successful and in many ways she lived a charmed existence, she felt a great gulf inside her. Profoundly sad, the woman found herself in a church one afternoon lighting a candle. For the first time in her life she realized that her dreams of family might not happen. She wept some there in the church, her head bowed, the candle flickering, and then she stood, dusted herself off, and decided to get on with her life. ÂI finally, seriously let that dream go,ÂŽ she told my friend. And then what happened? What always happens in these yarns. She met her Big Love. A marathon runner who happened to be hand-some and kind. And a sur-geon. Just. Like. That. My friend offered me this story during my own recent down moment, a tale of hope with a moralistic punch line. ÂYou just have to create space for love,ÂŽ my friend said, Âand it will come to you.ÂŽ ItÂs a lesson IÂve heard before. Several years ago I picked up Katherine Woodward ThomasÂs relationship advice book, ÂCalling In ÂThe OneÂ: 7 Weeks to Attract the Love of Your Life.ÂŽ I read the how-to guide with one eyebrow raised, not sure if I could swallow its New Age-y approach to love. The final section of the first chapter, ÂMaking Space for Love,ÂŽ as serted that in order to find a partner, we need both metaphorical and physical space. Mrs. Woodward Thom-as encouraged love-seekers to clean out their closets and adjust their beds. She also suggested they create breathing room in their schedules and their hearts. ÂWe all must master the ability to release who we are for the possibility of who we might become,ÂŽ she wrote. SheÂs not wrong, and I admire this idea of making room. But what happens when we create an overabundance of space? There are some of us who make a career out of looking for love, who keep our closets not just roomy but empty. We expend so much effort on being open and accommodating Â„ ready for love at any possible moment Â„ that we forget to root ourselves in our own lives. We become weightless and untethered, floating through life, always looking for the next heartthrob. Perhaps the trick to finding love, then, is to strike a balance between this openness and a certain grounding closed-ness. That way we can make space in our beds without forgetting to stake our claim to half of it. Q b a h g t f artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

IÂve been thinking about that story lately, because IÂm facing a simi-lar dilemma. I grew up in New York City, know how to navi-gate the subway and feel very comfortable sur-rounded by tall buildings. When it comes to movies, IÂm much more Tom Ford than John Ford. (Though I do intend to view some John Ford movies because theyÂre clas-sics and, I suspect, surpass genre.) But lately, IÂve been captivated by a cable TV series about cowboys, of all things. No one is more surprised than me.IÂve never been much for cowboys or westerns, with all those dirt roads, snorting horses, rifles and funny cloth-ing. I could never figure out why people idolized John Wayne. And yes, even though my last name is Stetson, those cowboy hats seemed a little silly. And all those cowboys who would say nothing more than ÂYepÂŽ or ÂNopeÂŽ and spit on the ground were absolutely Neanderthal. It was all so foreign to me.Then there was the stereotypical misrepresentation of Native Americans as Âsavages.ÂŽ My good friend Kate Whitehawk would tell me stories of watching west-erns as a child. TheyÂd laugh at all the mistakes the white filmmakers had made Â„ for example, how they would arbitrarily mix different tribes together. Or the way theyÂd put dark make-up on some white people to try to make them look Native American. TheyÂd cheer for the Indians.My friend Kate died a year and a half ago, and I miss her. I miss our late-night long-distance conversations. She had great insight. She helped this city girl develop a deeper love and apprecia-tion of nature. She taught me about her peopleÂs ways. We shared a passionate love for good books, movies and music. I wish I could tell her about this show. I wonder what she would say.How in the world did I wind up watching a television series set in Wyo-ming? I started in Los Angeles.I was a latecomer to the TV series ÂSouthland,ÂŽ which is set in Los Ange-les and filmed on its streets.Another police procedural? I initially thought. Not interested.But IÂd read good things about it, so I rented the first season. I was soon hooked.The show, created by Ann Biderman, is more of a character-driven drama than a typical police procedural. It not only looks at the unexpected, violent situations cops face on the streets, but examines how the job affects their per-sonal lives. ÂSouthlandÂŽ ran for one season on NBC and then for four more seasons on the cable channel TNT. (All five sea-sons are now available on DVD.) Executive producer Christopher Chulack and cinematographers Camer-on Duncan and J. Michael Muro moved on from ÂSouthlandÂŽ to work on ÂLong-mire,ÂŽ a contemporary crime thriller set in Wyoming. I was initially dubious, but remembered how rewarding ÂSouthlandÂŽ was. So I rented ÂLongmire.ÂŽ IÂve been pleasantly surprised. As a promotional trailer for the A&E cable series says: ÂAbsaroka County, Wyoming. When you get right down to it, itÂs not all that different from New York City. Both have their good points and bad points. Both have wealth and poverty. Both have problems with race, corruption, with violence, greed and murder.ÂŽ ÂLongmireÂŽ possesses a richness and a depth not often seen in westerns. ThereÂs a reason itÂs A&EÂs mostwatched drama. Walt Longmire, the sheriff in town, is a widower. Though his wifeÂs been dead just a year and heÂs still mourning her loss, people expect him to function as if nothing has happened. As part of his job, he has to notify people when a loved one has been killed. ItÂs a task he dreads, knowing firsthand the pain of loss. Sheriff Longmire, played by Robert Taylor, isnÂt a man of many words, but he talks more than your typical cowboy on any screen. And when he does say something, thereÂs intelligence and wit behind it. HeÂs also not afraid to show emotion. Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck from ÂBattlestar GalacticaÂŽ) plays Victoria, a new deputy who has transferred from Phila-delphia. Wyoming is as foreign to her as the craters of the moon. The series, though, is actually filmed in New Mexico. There are vast expans-es of land and snow-capped mountains. And the sky, at least to me, looks just as big. ThereÂs almost a Zen peacefulness to the show, and the directors arenÂt afraid to have moments of silence. (As trum-peter Nicholas Payton has said, ÂItÂs where you choose to put silence that makes sound music. Âƒ Silence is what makes sound sexy.ÂŽ) Ms. Sackhoff explains in the short feature titled ÂThe CameraÂs Eye; Real-izing the World of LongmireÂŽ: ÂThere are these big, dramatic pauses, whether itÂs done with the scenery or by the actor pausing, or the written pause from the writer, (or) the director asking you to take this moment, there is a real intention to what the spaces are, and they really want you to make sure that youÂre catching every single detail, so you understand the weight of it.ÂŽ Lou Diamond Phillips plays Sheriff LongmireÂs friend, Henry Standing Bear. And the great thing about the Cheyennes onscreen Â„ theyÂre actually played by Native American actors and locals. The series, which will air its third season next year, is based on Craig JohnsonÂs novels about Walt Longmire. I like the A&E series so much I just might check out one of the books.

A32 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 3-9, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY ÂIÂm advertising, first. ThatÂs my career. But in the back of my mind I always wanted eventually to paint because that was my education,ÂŽ he said. ÂEven though I was an ad person, IÂve always been an art director and a designer. Even when I had my own business I was always art directing and designing.ÂŽ After all, art always has been a part of Mr. CohenÂs life. ÂArt has always kind of been on the periphery, and I got to the point where I couldnÂt wait any longer,ÂŽ Mr. Cohen said. ÂWhen you get to be my age, time starts to become a real issue.ÂŽ Mr. Cohen turned 70 this year.ÂThe speed starts picking up and passing you by very quickly, so I did a lot of research because I was living in Palm Beach Gardens when I decided to pursue painting and I looked all over South Florida to find the place where I felt comfortable,ÂŽ he said. He had visions of going back to school, and checked out colleges and universities with an eye toward pursu-ing a masterÂs level painting program. ÂThen a friend told me to take a look at the Armory, so I came down here and wandered around. I went online and looked at the individual instructors here,ÂŽ he said. There was one who appealed to him: artist Miroslav Antic. ÂHe had training in Europe,ÂŽ Mr. Cohen said. ÂHe came to the United States and became a successful painter. He became a teacher at the Boston Museum school, which is one of the best classroom situations in the whole country. I came back down here and I talked to him. I spent an hour with him and that was all I needed because he absolutely knew his stuff. ThatÂs when I started taking his painting classes, and then really the big issue became what to paint.ÂŽ For two years, Mr. Cohen explored different directions of art. ÂThe issue of what to paint is the issue artists face all the time,ÂŽ he said. He began to follow pop artist Jim Dine, known for his heart themes. ÂThereÂs like five subjects that he paints, and he paints them again and again and again, and thatÂs pretty much what all of these guys do, and women. They paint the same thing again, and again and again. So I thought, OK, what would I be interested in?ÂŽ he said. ÂSo Miro got me interested in Andy War-hol.ÂŽ ThereÂs nothing like a little inspiration. ÂSo when I looked at Andy WarholÂs stuff, a big part of what he did was just do people and I had an affinity for him because when I started reading about him, most people know him as a guy who basically did silk-screen portraits, which basically started with a photo-graph,ÂŽ he said. ÂThe reason he did that was because he was so good with his hands at drawing that he wanted to take the drawing out of the equation and go to a simpler, faster, more business-like way of producing art. ... That intrigued me.ÂŽ Mr. Cohen wanted to highlight his own skills. ÂBut I didnÂt want to give up what I can do with my hands Â„ I can draw. (Warhol) wanted to give that up because he had a different end game,ÂŽ he said. Unlike the clean, mass-produced quality of a Warhol work, Mr. CohenÂs canvases have layer upon layer of paint and texture. The light captures those layers and casts shadows over parts of the works. Sometimes, the canvas hangs loose and unstretched, with folds from where it was wrapped around the roller. At first glance, his paintings are portraits of icons. There are such cultural leaders as Alfred Hitchcock, Woody Allen, Char-lie Chaplin and Jimi Hendrix. Abraham Lincoln plays off of other political lead-ers, including Bashar al-Assad, who in turn plays off of the killers he has depicted. Mr. Cohen gestured toward the canvas of Loughner. ÂJuxtapose him against Dick Cheney and how many people has he killed?ÂŽ Mr. Cohen asked. But the sheer scale makes the works less about the subject matter and more about the compositions themselves. ÂIÂm really not interested in a photographic image,ÂŽ he said. ÂIn fact as I go down the road, I see these images becoming less and less and less recog-nizable.ÂŽ Q ARMORYFrom page A27 >>What: Â“Mark Cohen: The Good, the Bad, and the UglyÂ”>>When: Through Oct. 19 >>Where: Armory Art Center, 1700 Parker Ave., West Palm Beach>>Cost: Free >>Info: 832-1776 or armoryarts.org in the know COURTESY IMAGE Also at the Armory: Red MorganÂ’s Â“BaptismÂ” is part of an exhibition of his work open through Oct. 26.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 3-9, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT A33 FLORIDA WRITERSHeart, head and habits complicate an exotic, multi-cultural romanceQ ÂA SahibÂs DaughterÂŽ by Nina Harkness. Tollymore Publishing. 266 pages. Trade paperback $13.99, Kindle ebook $2.99.This gorgeous, exotic romance takes readers through almost half a century beginning in 1933, but its main focus is the 20 years of 1959-1979. These years focus on three generations of Indian and Anglo-Indian women Â„ Prava, Ramo-na and Samira Â„ ending soon after the birth of SamiraÂs daughter. Written in an elegant, vivid prose style, the novel explores the relation-ships between adventurous men from England and Northern Ireland who leave their lower middle-class situa-tions for opportunities on tea planta-tions in India and the women they meet there. ÂSahibÂŽ is a respectful title for white Europeans of social status liv-ing in colonial India, roughly equiva-lent to sir or master, and it applies to the young Brits we meet who hold minor administrative positions on the vast, remote tea plantations that employ large numbers of native functionar-ies, field workers and household helpers. The pivotal year in the decades the novel embraces is 1947, when India becomes an independent nation and yet maintains pat-terns of its colonial heritage, including social and economic hierarchies based on class and race. How these play out in the lives of the principal characters is among the bookÂs most fascinating elements. Who is an appropriate mate for an Indian woman? Is marriage to a white planter a desired goal or a pairing doomed to grief? What is the status of racially blended individuals? How is it different in India from the UK? What are the chances for a comfort-able entry or re-entry into English or Irish lifestyles for the family created in India? Where is home? The answers vary with the outlook and circumstances of the people themselves. In the end, they are indi-viduals just as much as they are rep-resentative figures. The most complex set of circumstances has to do with Samira, who is courted by two men. First comes Ravi, the exceedingly handsome and dashing Indian man for whom she feels enormous passion. But RaviÂs attentions to her are inconsistent, and his periods of inattention are not sufficiently explained. We eventu-ally find out that his parents are not at all pleased with mixed-race Samira as a prop-er wife for their son, and they are putting enormous pressures on him to accept an arranged marriage. Next comes widower Justin, a tea planter whose first wife, the Irish-woman Lorraine, died in an accident. Despondent Justin is roused from his numbed life by the much younger Samira, who likes him in most ways, but without deep passion. Tired of waiting for Ravi, and eventually hearing him admit that he is bending to his parentsÂ will, Samira accepts JustinÂs proposal on the rebound. When he takes her to meet his family and plan a wedding in Northern Ireland, matters become extremely complicated, especially as Samira seems helpless in a world without servants. In addition, she is surprised to discover that she is pregnant. The authorÂs handling of setting is one of this novelÂs great strengths. Whether describing the home of a plantation manager, the social club that is at the center of community life, the modest clusters of commer-cial enterprises, the larger towns and cities or the back-home Irish neigh-borhoods, Ms. Harkness is a mar-velous stage-setter. All the notes a film director would need for location shooting, set design and even cos-tume design are lavishly available in ÂA SahibÂs Daughter.ÂŽ As the main characters move back and forth between England or North-ern Island and India, we see the degrees of dislocation that the shift-ing environments and cultures bring to each of them. Identity is often compromised and confused. Step into this colorful novel and enjoy the sights, tastes and smells of the Dooars region, Assam, Darjeel-ing and Dehli; savor the delicious romances; feel the tensions of cul-tural conflict and change.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 3-9, 2013 A35 Buying a car at the best of times is a stress-ful and often frustrating experience. Even with tools like CarFax and AutoCheck, the used car customer may not really have the informa-tion needed to make an informed deci-sion. One business is out to change that. North Palm Beach resident Bill McLaughlin has come up with an alternative Â— one he hopes changes the way all of America shops for cars and trucks. Mr. McLaughlin, the former president and CEO of Starwood Vacation Resorts, was looking for something post retirement to Â“get him out of the houseÂ” when he hit on a way to not only make money but help others. Â“IÂ’ve always been a car guy,Â” he said. Setting himself up as an auto manufacturerÂ’s representative, he began to attend closed auctions, buying as many as 15 off-lease vehicles at a time, mostly for Northeast dealerships looking for rust-free Florida cars. His client list grew to include new car deal-ers from New York to Georgia Â— dealers sold on Mr. McLaughlinÂ’s stringent testing and practice of charging the dealerships only $500 over his cost. He started AutoMax of America in 1992, scouring the country for luxury brands, trans-porting them to Florida then shipping them out as soon as possible Â“AutoMax doesnÂ’t look like your typical car lot,Â” he said of the 5401 North Haver-hill Rd #105 in West Palm Beach. Â“It looks more like a maintenance place with 30-50 cars set up to ship to different parts of the country. Through word of mouth and friends of friends we started getting requests direct from the consumer and so we set up a web-site.Â” A car buyer can log on to automax ofamerica.com and enter in exactly the type of car he or she is looking for from color, make, options, model to mileage. Â“I put in an order last Monday and we just picked up two trucks from Bill in less than a week,Â” said Buddy Wittmann of Wittmann Building Corporation in Palm Beach. Â“There were only five of these trucks in the U.S. You couldnÂ’t ask for a more reliable and honest salesperson. Â“It takes about a week for Mr. McLaughlin to find the requested car. He charges consum-ers the same $500 over wholesale fee he charges dealerships and if you are a veteran or in the military, the price is reduced to $250.Â“I have access to 100,000 to 150,000 cars every week,Â” Mr. McLaughlin said. Â“I can find the exact car you are looking for. I charge less than what the dealerships charge in dealerÂ’s fees.Â” Mr. McLaughlin, who served four years in the military, was born in West Point. His father was an instructor there. He says he has been around the military his whole life and is committed to helping active service men and women, and veterans, find affordable cars. Â“I donÂ’t make any money on those cars,Â” he said. Â“ItÂ’s hard to find a quality car for less than $2,000. People donÂ’t realize how much work goes into what we do.Â” Mr. McLaughlinÂ’s cars come with the CarFax and AutoCheck reports in addition to his own condition report and post-sale inven-tory. He recommends all car buyers purchase extended service warranties because the cars he specializes in Â— BMW, Acura, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus Â— can be expensive to service. If your warranty is about to expire or you donÂ’t have one call and ask about our extended warranty service.

Q Annette Rawlings solo exhibition set for Cultural Council of Palm Beach County SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Cultural Council of Palm Beach CountyÂs latest solo exhibition is origi-nal works by Annette Rawlings, sched-uled to open Oct. 12 in the Lawrence A. Sanders Foundation Artist Resource Center at the council, 601 Lake Avenue, in Lake Worth. The exhibition is free and runs through Nov. 9. Annette Rawlings has been compared to notable modern masters over her 40-plus year career. The simplicity of RawlingsÂ paintings in style and composition lend a lyrical yet controlled fluidity to the canvas, the statement said. Her reclining figura-tive forms flow effortlessly into subtle landscapes emblazoned with the colors of the southwestern sky. Her portraits, with hues developed specifically for each painting, imbue a fancifully honest view of each sitter. ModiglianiÂs portrai-ture, GauguinÂs colors and LegerÂs lines influenced RawlingsÂ work, though her painting speaks with a self-composed voice all her own. ÂWe are pleased to show the work of Annette Rawlings,ÂŽ said Rena Blades, president and CEO of the council. ÂHer work and career prove she is a prime example of a professional artist in Palm Beach County.ÂŽ The public is invited to meet Rawlings for A Gallery Talk with Annette Rawlings on Saturday, Oct. 19 at 3 p.m. To register, call Nichole Hickey at 472-3336.

ÂMy goal at Red Tapas is to completely turn this place around,ÂŽ says Chef Hinojosa. ÂThe food here is made from the heart and with passion. ThatÂs how you get great food.ÂŽ Chef Hinojosa, originally from Puerto Rico, moved to Coral Springs at 15. Although he says that his first job was at a pizzeria washing dishes, cooking became second nature to him. ÂIÂve always loved to cook with my mom for the holidays,ÂŽ he says. ÂMy mom taught me everything about Span-ish cooking and Spanish spices, but working at the pizzeria opened my eyes to new flavors, new spices, and I loved it.ÂŽ Chef Hinojosa says that he worked at multiple fast-food restaurants through-out high school, but as graduation approached his culinary dreams were put on hold when he joined the Army and spent two years in Germany. Upon returning to Florida, Chef Hinojosa says that he couldnÂt deny or avoid his passion for culinary. ÂCooking is my calling,ÂŽ he says. ÂI had to deal with the fact that this is who I am, this is what I was meant to do, and this is what I love.ÂŽ ChiliÂs, Red Lobster, CarrabbaÂs, The Capital Grille, and Seasons 52 are some of the restaurants in which Chef Hino-josa has worked. Grateful for the many opportunities, Chef Hinojosa says that he walked away from each restaurant with more knowledge of the industry than he could have ever imagined. ÂWhile Carrabas taught me how to cook large volumes of food, Capital Grille taught me about the business side of the chef world, as well as how to cook and serve fine food,ÂŽ he says. ÂAnother thing I learned is that you have to have thick skin in this business. People will try to knock you down, but being knocked down will only make you a better chef.ÂŽ Chef Hinojosa is determined to shape the future of Red Tapas. ÂRed Tapas is all about discovering new tastes and creating a relaxing atmo-sphere to unwind,ÂŽ he says. ÂSoon, we will be updating the menu and adding exciting things to make Red Tapas the place to be.ÂŽ Oversized red lips on the wall and fiery red bar tops set the tone for a trendy night out where tasting the flavors of the world one bite at a time is a guarantee. ÂWhen I hear guests say that the food is amazing, there is nothing better than that,ÂŽ he says. ÂBut, when guests join their tables together to experience, share food and basically have a party, the Red Tapas concept comes alive and I can go home to my wife and kids com-pletely satisfied.ÂŽ Name: Mike Hinojosa Age: 41 Originally from: Puerto Rico Restaurant: Red Tapas Bar and Grille, 11701 Lake Victoria Gardens, Palm Beach Gardens; 333-7331 or red-tapasbar.com Mission: ÂI want to turn this restaurant around. Soon enough we will be updating the menu, and I want Red Tapas to be the first place that comes to mind when people say, ÂHey, letÂs go have some delicious food in a relaxing environment.ÂÂŽ Cuisine: New American Cuisine WhatÂs your footwear of choice in the kitchen? ÂI wear Mozo shoes. TheyÂre Italian made with a light rubber sole,ÂŽ he says. ÂOf course, theyÂre also non-slip.ÂŽ What is your guilty culinary pleasure? ÂWell, if you were to ask me what I would want as my last meal, it would definitely be Osso Buco Milanese served with risotto; I take a lot of pride in my risotto,ÂŽ he says. ÂBut, my weak-ness is ice cream! Ben & JerryÂs Wavy Gravy is my favorite flavor, but sadly they stopped making it.ÂŽ What advice would you give someone who wants to be a chef? ÂYou have to have a passion and be prepared to be on an opposite schedule from everyone else. ItÂs a really hard business and it isnÂt made for everybody. Being a chef is really cool, though, because we are one of a few Â„ not many can do what we do and many donÂt want to do what we do.ÂŽ Q In the kitchen with...MIKE HINOJOSA, Red Tapas Bar and Grille BY LOREN GUTENTAGlgutentag@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus A mix of old and new at P.B.
