X When it comes to Jack Nicklaus, charity is a matter of course. So it stands to reason that the Golden Bear, who has pinned his name to all man-ner of golf accoutrement, now has his own line of golf balls. He hopes his latest venture will simplify golf, as well as give back to the game and to charity. Mr. Nicklaus is introducing three golf balls „ Nicklaus Black, Nicklaus Blue and Nicklaus White „ to accommodate three skill levels of players, using the traditional tees from which they typically play. We all know that the game of golf can be challenging enough, so we are trying to simplify the decision-making process of selecting the right golf ball and at the same time provide consumers the high-est-quality golf balls and at a price that encourages charitable support,Ž Mr. Nick-laus said in a statement. By buying these balls, players will get the added benefit of supporting these wonderful charities that help children in need as well as the fami-lies that dearly love them.Ž The balls, which will begin shipping in November, initially will be sold exclu-sively online at and through golf/pro shops at the more than 200 Nicklaus Design courses nationwide. A percentage from every golf ball sold in those shops will be donated directly to the Nicklaus Childrens Health Care Nicklaus markets new golf ball line to help his foundation SEE NICKLAUS, A10 X SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________ BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@” FLORIDA HAS ITS SEASONS BACKWARD.

They begin the process by calculating where they want to go, how much it will cost to get there, and whether they can raise the funding necessary to underwrite the plan. They rely on multiple sources of funding to finance and sustain the cost of doing business. Once the gavel falls, and the board approves the budget, it becomes the blueprint for guiding forward the achievement of the orga-nizations aspirations. The budget also helps quantify expectations for the organizations future performance. If goals accomplished exceed the expectations set, so much the better. Interim course corrections during the year account for the unexpected „ a grant decline, repair of a leaking roof or a windfall gift. Staying on track is the task of effective management. Woe to the charity that over-estimates its opportunities, under-estimates its potential risks and liabilities, and fails to keep its balance sheet in the black. It takes a thoughtful process for an organization to calculate and arrive at an accurate prediction of its future income and revenues. This judgment call is at the heart of a charitys fiscal challenge. Stewardship in this context is adherence to the principle that an organizations burn rate of expenditures does not exceed its projected sources of income. In the wake of the recession, with uncertainties about funding so much more pronounced, it has gotten much more difficult for nonprofits to main-tain the exquisite balance between in-come to out-go. To keep the engine running, charities have an assortment of tried-and-true development strategies, including grant-writing, direct appeals, annual and year-end giving, fee income gen-erated by contract services, and fund-raising events of every hue and stripe. Few have the luxury of income streams that are permanently endowed and/or fully predictable; and fewer still plant the seeds for future harvest of planned gifts that provide periodic transfusions of additional assets. Nonprofits are always on the scramble for funding and competition is keener now. Traditional sources have either dried up or been heavily eroded by an economy unfavorable to non-profit interests and sustainability. These reasons alone are sufficient to spur charities onward to seek new ideas. Online fundraising has seen double-digit growth among all nonprofits since 2009. It is rare to find a non-profit nowadays that is not at least thinking about ways it can increase it virtual audience by having an active presence on the web. Facebook is one of the options most commonly exercised because it is a user-friendly way to create a virtual space to wage, with limited staff and a few mouse-clicks, an on-going social media campaign to attract new friends. Turning friends into prospective, online donors is a powerful motiva-tor driving the growing use of social media by nonprofits to communicate and market their charitable brand. Social media is one of the more visible of new-new strategies to open up new sources of giving, but nonprof-its are also in pursuit of other ideas, such as fees for services or revenue from the sale of goods to customers or clients „ earned revenue, in other words. Multiple examples exist in Palm Beach County of this kind of entre-preneurship among nonprofits. The approach has the added advantage of providing nonprofits a way to achieve a double bottom line „ to do well financially by investing in social good. You may be familiar with some charities that operate businesses, like Goodwill Industries stores and Habi-tat for Humanities Re-store opera-tions. Both recycle and sell donated goods and reinvest the income in client sup-port services and programs. There are other lines of business such as that of The Lords Place, an organization dedicated to breaking the cycle of homelessness in the county. The nonprofit operates the Caf Joshua Catering Company, a thriving enterprise that provides full-service catering for businesses and other non-profit organizations throughout Palm Beach County. The proceeds from the business support the programs and services of The Lords Place. It also provides the organizations clients on-the-job train-ing and experience in food preparation and service that helps them to secure future employment opportunities. Non-profit businesses use their profits to improve the services they provide to the community rather than pay dividends to private investors. The formula for success requires a charity to find the right fitŽ and have the prerequisite skills, training and business expertise. A recent article in the Harvard Business Review noted that the biggest obstacle to scale for the social sector is the absence of effective funding models. The Lords Place and charities that are similarly blazing new business trails may be on to something that will solve this development dilemma.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 10-16, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Herman Wallace, free at lastHerman Wallace died a free man. After close to 42 years in solitary con-finement, with only days to live, federal Judge Brian Jackson ordered Wallaces release on Tuesday by overturning his 1974 murder conviction. He died in New Orleans three days later, on Fri-day, Oct. 4. Herman Wallace was one of the Angola 3,Ž along with Robert King, who was released from prison in 2001, and Albert Woodfox, who remains imprisoned in solitary confinement, despite having his sentence over-turned on three separate occasions. These three men, all African-American, were locked up in what was considered Americas bloodiest prison, maximum-security Louisiana State Penitentiary, known simply as Angola.Ž The sprawl-ing prison is on the grounds of a former slave plantation, with 5,000 prisoners. Its named for the African country where many of its earlier enslaved occupants came from. Prisoners toil in the prisons fields, overseen by armed guards on horseback. Wallace first went to prison for robbery. He, Woodfox and King formed one of the first prison chapters of the Black Panther Party, organizing inmates to oppose the systemic vio-lence and sexual slavery that pervaded the institution. Wallace and Woodfox were then convicted of the 1972 murder of a young prison guard, Brent Miller. No physical evidence linked the men to the crime. A bloody fingerprint at the murder scene, which matched neither Wallaces nor Woodfoxs fingerprints, was ignored by authorities. Wallace and Woodfox believe they were targeted by officials because of their organizing work. After their conviction in 1974, they were put in solitary confinement along with Robert King, who was being punished for another crime, also one that he did not commit. The story of the Angola 3 is told in Hermans House,Ž a documen-tary recently broadcast on the PBS series P.O.V.Ž It follows the collabora-tion between Wallace and artist Jackie Sumell. She heard Robert King speak after his release, and decided to write to Wallace. The documentary includes Herman Wallaces voice, from recorded phone conversations with Sumell. Jackie, in your letter you asked me what sort of house does a man who lives in a 6-foot-by-9-foot cell dream of?Ž Herman Wallace says. In the front of the house, I have three squares of gardens. The gardens are the easiest for me to imagine, and I can see they would be certain to be full of garde-nias, carnations and tulips. This is of the utmost importance. I would like for guests to be able to smile and walk through flowers all year long.Ž I interviewed Jackie Sumell the day before the surprise announcement of Wallaces release. She said that his dream house will outlive his flesh and bones „ Hermans legacy, his com-mitment to the people and the story of his injustice. Its important to build this house in the incarceration capital of the world.Ž Louisiana has the high-est per-capita incarceration rate in the United States, 13 times higher than that of China. It also leads the nation in people freed after being wrongfully convicted. The Angola 3 were united for the last time Tuesday. The prison rules allowed King and Woodfox to say their final goodbyes to Wallace, not because he was leaving prison, but because he was dying. By sheer coincidence, that was when the judge overturned Wallaces conviction, and they were the ones who gave Wallace the news. Robert King described their final moments togeth-er: Alberts last words were, Herman, we love you, and youre going to get out today.Ž King described how Albert Woodfox leaned over, hands and feet shackled, and kissed Herman goodbye on his forehead. Amnesty International has called on Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal to immediately remove Albert Woodfox from solitary confinement. Wallace was transferred to an ambulance and driven to the Louisiana State University Hospital in New Orleans. He has dreamed of his release for years, and describes it in Hermans HouseŽ: I got to the front gate, and theres a whole lot of people out there. ... I was dancing my way out. I was doing the jitterbug. ... I turn around, and I look, and there are all the brothers in the window waving and throwing the fist sign „ its rough, man. Its so real. I can feel it even now.Ž Herman Wallace was strapped into an ambulance, not dancing, as he left the prison, hanging on to life by a thread. But he was free, after almost 42 years in soli-tary confinement, longer than any other prisoner in U.S. history. 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 bestseller.Long ago, Ted Cruz earned the hatred of every elected Democrat in Washing-ton. Now, hes on his way to doing the same with nearly every Republican. He is, to paraphrase Winston Churchills quip about Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, a bull who carries a china shop with him. He had barely begun his 21-hour filibuster „ or, to be strictly precise, 21-hour-long speech „ when he compared his doubters to appeasers of Adolf Hitler, and he ended it roughly a day later with a prickly exchange with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. The Cruz eye-rollers had plenty of occasions to roll their eyes „ perhaps no senator has caused so many col-leagues to mutter under their breaths in his first eight months in the worlds greatest deliberative body „ but the conservative grass roots cheered. They are desperate for passion and, above all, fight, and Cruz delivered them dur-ing his long hours holding forth on C-SPAN2. We should stipulate upfront that he is not going to defund Obamacare. As a legislative strategy, the defund effort is far-fetched to the point of absurdity. The theory is that after a government shutdown, pressure becomes so intense on Democrats that Reid buckles and passes a measure defunding Obamacare, and Barack Obama signs it. Why would a little downside political risk in the current confrontation move them? Were talking about a party that spent decades trying to pass something like Obamacare and a president who was content to lose his House majority over it. The Cruz all-nighter wasnt a legislative tactic so much as it was what 19th-century anarchists called the pro-paganda of the deed.Ž It made a point. It dramatically reaffirmed Republican resolve to repealing Obamacare. It also saved Cruzs reputation among the tea-party conservatives. By spending nearly an entire day attacking Obamacare on the Senate floor, Cruz demonstrated enough gutsiness to take the sting out of his imminent defeat. In the longer run, the outc ome in the short term is irrelevant to Cruzs stature as a conservative leader. No one asked whether Ronald Reagan had successfully blocked the ratification of the Panama Canal Treaty in 1977 when he ran for president in 1980. For that mat-ter, no one asked whether Sen. Barack Obama had successfully defunded the Iraq War in 2007 when he ran for presi-dent in 2008. Obamas example is instructive: When before have we heard of a new senator capturing the imagination of his partys base, establishing an unimpeachable standard of purity on a hot-butt on issue absolutely essential to it and beginning to run for president shortly after arriv-ing on the national scene? Who knows whether Cruz ultimately tries the same thing? But the scoffers are probably the same kind of people who chuckled at backbencher Newt Gingrich giving speeches to an empty House chamber on C-SPAN so many decades ago. Gingrich was playing an outside game, and so is Cruz. The disdain for him among insiders will be inversely related to the admiration for him among the much more important outsiders. They will sustain him in a crusade against Obamacare that, alas, will extend long beyond this falls fiscal fights.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 10-16, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESTick tacticsMore ticks mean year-round preventive measures are a must for dog and cat owners BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickIn the span of less than a week, I found two ticks on my dog Harper, a Cavalier King Charles spaniel. In 25 years of dog ownership, that was a first. We live in Southern California, so ticks are a fact of life, but Harper doesnt typically go into areas where ticks are found. We dont have a yard, and shes not allowed on local hiking trails. I can only surmise that the ticks hitched a ride on me „ ick! „ after a hike and made their way onto Harper.Tick populations are increasing. And there arent just more of them; theyre being found in more places than in the past, says veterinary parasitologist Dr. Susan E. Little of Oklahoma State University. Mild-er winters; more white-tailed deer, which carry the tiny arachnids; and increasing development in formerly rural areas are among the factors in the ticks spread.Like me, you might never have had to worry about ticks before, but now is a good time to talk to your veterinarian about their prevalence in your area. Many tick species have moved out of their original habitats, carried away by migra-tory birds, coyotes and deer. One or more species of ticks can now be found in every state, including Alaska and Hawaii. Ticks used to be active from spring through fall, but warmer winters mean that some spe-cies are staying active as late as February, depending on where they are located. Thats bad news, since ticks are major carri-ers of diseases that affect both humans and dogs and cats. Most of us are famil-iar with Lyme disease, but ticks also transmit Rocky Mountain spotted fever, ehrlichiosis, babesiosis and Cytauxzoon felis, which infects cats. The ticks that primarily transmit these debili-tating and sometimes deadly diseases are the black-legged tick (Ixodes scapularis), the Lone Star tick (Amblyomma america-num) and the American dog tick (Derma-centor variabilis). Protect yourself and your pets from tick-borne diseases with the following measures: Q Provide all your pets with lifetime parasite control. We always say to treat every pet every month all year long,Ž Dr. Little says. Dogs and cats dont spread tick-borne diseases directly to their own-ers, but they can acquire diseases from ticks as well as bring ticks into the home or yard. And just because your dog or cat stays mainly indoors or lives in a certain geographic region doesnt mean hes not at risk. Q Ask your veterinarian which ticks and tick-borne diseases are common in your area and which product is best for protecting your animals. The information may have changed since you last learned about ticks. Q Apply tick-prevention products on a regular schedule. Its no longer effective to try to time parasite control to start in spring and stop after the second killing frost. Q Check your dog or cat for ticks anytime he has been outdoors. Keep a tick-removal device on hand and know how to use it. Q Make your yard less welcoming to ticks by removing leaf litter, mowing the lawn frequently, keeping landscaping free of tall grass and brush, and fencing your yard to prevent incursions by deer and other animals that carry ticks. A three-foot swathe of wood chips or gravel between your lawn and wooded areas wont keep ticks away, but it does serve as a visual reminder that you are entering the tick zone. Q Use insect repellent on yourself and wear protective clothing. Q After a hike or other outdoor excursion to tick-friendly wooded areas with tall grass, give yourself a cursory exami-nation for the little bloodsuckers, so you dont drive them home to your pets. Q Depending on where you live in the United States, there are six to eight major tick species and many minor ones. >> Tashi is a 3-year-old neutered domestic shorthair.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 10-16, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYIm always looking forward to the GreenMarket. Im blessed with a job in which I go out and spend my Saturdays on the water,Ž said Katrina Resch, who supervises the West Palm Beach Green-Market, the areas oldest and largest market, which kicked off Oct. 4 along the citys waterfront. Ms. Resch said the market will bring a record number of vendors this year. Im most excited that we have a record number of vendors this season,Ž she said. We are starting out with a hun-dred, and 25 are new, which is awesome.Ž The market itself started in October 1994. Lake Worth will open its Farmers Market Oct. 12 just east of the Intracoastal Waterway. It will open with about 45 vendors; organizers expect that number to grow to 60 once season comes into full swing. Its season No. 8 in Lake Worth,Ž said Peter Robinson, the markets director, and onetime director of the West Palm Beach GreenMarket. Ive been gone from West Palm for 10 years. Its wild. Unbelievable, and I was 10 years at West Palm.Ž He also oversees the Wellington Green Market, which opens Nov. 9. Its a tightly knit family,Ž he said, adding that he still keeps in touch with ven-dors from his days in charge of the West Palm Beach GreenMarket. Of the Palm Beach Gardens market, I was there on opening day 12 years ago,Ž said Christy Wolnewitz, a recreation coordinator for the city of Palm Beach Gardens who oversees the GreenMarket. Its near and dear to my heart. We have from the beginning 12 years ago gotten great support from every part of the city, including the mayor and the council.Ž The greenmarket was a novel concept 20 years, when these local markets first began to emerge. Never mind that Palm Beach and Martin counties were among the states agricultural hubs. Growers and retailers simply did not showcase the local produce they do now. There was no outlet for locally produced artisanal cheeses or herbs. And forget about the spice rubs, jellies and soaps that shoppers have come to expect in markets from Tequesta to Boca Raton, West Palm Beach to Wellington.Building a communityThere was no outlet for a vendor like Jamal Lake, co-owner of Ganache Bakery Caf, which sells cakes and such. At first, the coconut water was the main thing,Ž said Mr. Lake, who has had a concession at the greenmarket for seven years. Then we added a few more juices and rum cake.Ž He and cake artist Joan Lewis-Clarke are known for the elaborately decorated cakes they sell through Ganache. Its an opportunity to do what they l ove, and the greenmarket advances that. What I like about it most of all, its a good market to expose our products to high-end clients,Ž he said. The West Palm Beach market attracts customers from all over the county, and it gives Mr. Lake and Ms. Lewis-Clarke an opportunity to network.  Most of the people are like a little family. Outside the greenmarket, we network. Its really good for network-ing and community and being in a little family almost. Weve created a bunch of relationships with a bunch of the cus-tomers,Ž Mr. Lake said. Ive seen babies when theyre just born and now theyre 5, 6 years old and still love the coconut water.Ž People know him for that product.Ill be at church and theyll be like, Oh, youre the coconut guy,Ž he said. Thats part of the charm of a local market. The vendors are what makes the event. They go through a pretty selective screening process to get into the event,Ž said West Palm Beachs Ms. Resch. The West Palm market is great,Ž said Mike Vining, one of the partners in Two Friends Pepper Jelly. Its one of the best markets we sell our jellies at.Ž Mr. Vinings wife, Karen Vining, and Marcia Hendry-Coker, make up the Two Friends in the company name. In addition to making three varieties of pepper jelly, including a pinot noir and jalapeo, they also own a deli in south Stuart called Two Friends Breaking Bread. Every time were at the market, its a great venue. There are lots of a great people. Its really enjoyable being there,Ž Mr. Vining said. They also sell their jellies at the B&A Flea Market in Stuart and at the Gardens GreenMarket. West Palm Beachs market is on Saturdays and the Palm Beach Gardens market runs on Sundays, offering vendors an additional venue for sales. Theyre pretty similar. Theres a lot of vendors,Ž Mr. Vining said. It gets a lot of people that show up there. Its a nice venue. Its right near the ballpark. The area is really nice.Ž Organizers make it easy for vendors, too. The people that run it are really friendly, helpful, putting tents up, what-ever. Theyre both excellent markets to be at,Ž Mr. Vining said. And organizers love hearing that.We are very proud of our market and our vendors and what weve grown into,Ž said Palm Beach Gardens Ms. Wolne-witz. And the moment for which she waits each Sunday? Once the market is set up and running and were ready to open and its 8 oclock and weve been there since 5, and its organized chaos. Its set up and the music is playing, and people are smiling, thats my favorite part,Ž Ms. Wolnewitz said. The venues do not hurt, either. West Palm Beach now holds its greenmarket at its new Waterfront Commons, which offers views of the Intracoastal Waterway and Palm Beach beyond. And the Gardens market, which draws upward of 120 vendors, is convenient for customers and vendors alike. Both of those are held on weekend mornings. But Harry Welshs Jupiter Green & Artisan is an evening affair held Fridays along the towns Riverwalk. The Intracoastal views and the sunsets can be beautiful. There is nothing better than watching the boats go by as the sun goes down,Ž Mr. Welsh wrote in an email. We will be including more food items „ specialty and concession,Ž he wrote. The Friday night market lends itself to stepping out to the market before, dur-ing or after supper to browse the various vendors products.ŽLooking beyond foodHis market goes beyond the usual fresh foods to include fashion, home and pet items. That seems to cut across all of the markets. We did open up an all-natural category, which allows for people who hand-make products out of 100 percent natural products,Ž said West Palm Beachs Ms. Resch. Look for other items that complement food and other fare sold at the markets. A wood turner will be selling at West Palm Beach, as will a potter who will demonstrate his skill. Thats what sets the markets apart.We have live music every Sunday,Ž said Palm Beach Gardens Ms. Wolne-witz. We have an assortment of vendors. We have had crafters, we try to do live demonstrations once a month. We want to make it an appealing event for people to come out to.Ž Mr. Robinson said visitors can expect some old favorites to return to the Lake Worth Farmers Market. The Taco Boys are back. Theyre just incredible fresh local tacos that are creative. I have located the boys. They werent with us last year, but theyre back this year, so Im ecstatic,Ž he said, adding that foodies from across the region came to the market each week just to feast on the tacos. We also have the Southern gourmet GREEN MARKETFrom page 1 Area greenmarketsNow open>> West Palm Beach GreenMarket — 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturdays through May 31, Water-front Commons, downtown West Palm Beach.

He lives in Sanford, Fla., drives down Friday night, does the mar-ket, then drives back,Ž Mr. Robinson said. Hes also a national bromeliad expert who chaired their national convention.

Those in addition to the locally harvest Palm Beach County organic and non-organic vegetables that will be available for sale.

He has hired a manager for each market to ensure vendors and customers are happy.Growing WellingtonIn Wellington, therell be over 10 growers of vegetables and plants „ no re-sellers,Ž he said. Im all growers in that market. ƒ The person in the booth has dirty fingernails because they have grown what was sold. This has been my dream forever. This year, Ive created it at Wellington.Ž He expects the Wellington Market to open its third season with 45-50 vendors, then grow to 60 or more once season is in full swing. The sponsorships dont hurt, either. Ms. Wolnewitz said Palm Beach Gardens will count on HealthSource Chiropractic and Progressive Rehab and Schumacher Automotive to help out this year. And Mr. Robinson said he had received a sponsorship for the market from the Grand Champions Polo Club and from Audi, as in the car,Ž he said. Its certainly not the biggest, but its one of the best.Ž He sees the markets, and perhaps especially the Wellington market, as opportu-nities to help vendors grow. Mr. Robinsons proudest achievement?The incubation of businesses, which I love, and Ive been able to do that quite a bit in Wellington,Ž he said. He brags a little.Ill have the only market in Palm Beach County with 100 percent growers, no re-sellers.Ž Thats a claim that cannot be verified.But what is certain is this: Even in the heat of the day, the customers will come.

Foundation to support pediatric pro-grams and hospitals nationwide, while visitors to will have the ability to support the foundation with voluntary contributions. The idea of creating three balls corresponds to the teeing areas golfers typically play. The Nicklaus White ball is designed for the players who might typically play the forward or white tees. Nicklaus Blue is designed for players who would typically play the middle or blue tees. And, finally, Nicklaus Black is designed for the single-digit or bet-ter golfer who generally plays from the back tees,Ž Mr. Nicklaus said in the statement. The introduction of a Nicklausdesigned and branded golf ball is the latest venture since Mr. Nicklaus part-nered with Howard Milstein in 2007 to further the growth of the company. Howard Milstein is chairman and CEO of New York Private Bank & Trust, and is actively involved in the Nicklaus Companies as co-chairman along with Mr. Nicklaus. Over the decades, Mr. Nicklaus has exhibited a passion for introducing and growing the game worldwide. He has been a trustee and national co-chair for The First Tee, and this year he launched an initiative with SNAG (Starting New At Golf) called the Jack Nicklaus Learn-ing Leagues, which gives children ages 5 through 12 the opportunity to be intro-duced to the game at parks and recre-ation facilities nationwide. He also was a Global AmbassadorŽ for the games unified campaign to have golf returned to the Olympic Games. In July, he received the Ambassador of Golf Award, presented annually to a person who fosters the ideals of the game on an international level and whose con-cern for others extends beyond the golf course. With accessibility and growth of the game paramount, the online model will save golfers money by reducing hidden distribution costs typically built into golf balls sold through traditional retail channels, according to the statement from Mr. Nicklaus. For example, Nicklaus Black will sell in pro shops for $50 a dozen, but while that is the recommended price when sold through, visitors to the site will pay $32, plus a voluntary contribution of up to $20 for those who can afford a donation. Nicklaus Blue and Nicklaus White are priced at $46 in pro shops, but on, visitors pay $28 plus the optional contribution. This distribution approach lets people buy the balls in a way that encourages them to support the Nicklaus Childrens Health Care Foundation, which champi-ons the health, safety and well being of children nationwide. During a month-long pre-order period, customers can order the ball for discounted introduc-tory prices of $30 (Nicklaus Black) and $26 (Nicklaus Blue and Nicklaus White). My partner, Howard, who is a wellknown philanthropist, emphasized from the start that if our company entered the golf ball business, it was going to be with a philanthropic vision,Ž Mr. Nick-laus said in the statement. He, along with his wife, Barbara, established the foundation in 2004. To learn more about the new Nicklaus Golf Ball, including product specs, features and benefits, or to order, see Q NICKLAUSFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOThe three different golf balls are for different skill levels of play. Jack Nicklaus said the differ-ent golf balls will simplify the game for golfers, as well as provide funds for the charity that helps pediatric hospitals, and children and their families.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 10-16, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYSibling relationship is a legacy we should cherishDara, Dara, Dara.Ž Dara, this. Dara, that.Ž John and Gloria exchanged exasperated groans. Their mother, Edith, was at it again. Couldnt she hear herself? They couldnt stand listening to their mother regale them, once again, with stories about their sister Daras job, Daras wildly successful husband, or Daras overachieving children. Yes, of course, John and Gloria knew their mother loved them all. But didnt she realize that her other children and grandchildren were pretty special, too? Didnt their mother know that it had to hurt like hell, when she was so busy boasting about Dara that she often overlooked the accomplishments of the rest of the family? Its not that John and Gloria hadnt attempted to explain their hurt and frustrations to their mother. Its just that nothing sunk in. Edith would become indignant and would vociferously defend herself, insisting she was the paragon of fairness, and loved each and every one of her family members equally. Worse yet, after a particularly heated exchange, she had even accused them of being mean-spirited and jealously ganging up on their sister. She once again recanted Daras many wonderful qualities and accused them of rebuffing Daras many efforts to be close. John and Gloria found it infuriating. While, at times, Edith did a good job at being even-handed, she probably couldnt help herself. She had no idea that everyone could see the way her eyes lit up when she saw Dara.We may convince ourselves that were adults and that these things shouldnt bother us anymore. We may promise ourselves that this time well handle ourselves differently: We wont react, provoke, or fall into the childish pat-terns. But somehow or other, when we interface with our families, it doesnt take much for the old childhood jealousies to come roaring back with a vengeance. There has been much written about the impact of siblings on our psyches. Sibling relationships are often the lon-gest interpersonal relationships that most of us will ever have. These are the folks who knew us from way back when, and also have shared interactions with many important people in our lives, for better or worse! Whether these con-nections have been deeply rewarding or seriously flawed, siblings share an interconnected legacy. Because our sibling relationships are usually our first interpersonal experi-ences (outside of parental bonds), these relationships largely shape our view of self and others. There are many fac-tors that will influence the intensity of the sibling bond: including, but not limited to birth order, genetics, indi-vidual temperament, the individuals gender, relationships and events outside of the family, the way the individual is treated within the family, and the eth-nic and socio-economic environment. And because family structures are fluid, each childs experience may be different „ when each child is born, the fam-ily may be facing different stresses and challenges. Its important to further note that, independent of parental influences, brothers and sisters often strive to dis-tinguish themselves from each other, often competing to best each other by interpersonal, athletic and academic achievements. This sibling competition is often the catalyst to form separate identities and personalities. We certainly cannot minimize the impact of the perceivedŽ relationship between our sibling(s) and our parents. Perceived is highlighted because the parental-child relationship is a compli-cated mix of each persons actual behav-ior and the perceivedŽ sense of how they think they are being treated emotionally. Most parents will profess to love their children equally and will insist they are not only treating their children the same, but fairly. It is very difficult for any parent to consider that they may have shown favoritism, and in the pro-cess may have caused undue hurt. Nor would they like to own that theyve in any way instigated angst in their chil-drens ongoing relationships. However, from a very early age, many young people have radars up, watching to see how they are being treated, and comparing this to how they perceive their siblings are being treated. They quickly learn the family culture, and can differentiate parental reactions to their mishaps, and watch to see if parental favor is meted out to the others advan-tage. In many instances, the sibling interaction can become a blueprint for a pattern of relating to important people outside of the family „ whether roman-tic, friendship or workplace related. Because these patterns may be so deep-seated in our personalities, identi-ty and world-view, it can be understand-ably quite difficult, if not impossible, to shift to a different perspective. How-ever, when familial relationships have been particularly stressful or painful, there might be a strong incentive to gain insight, and to make realistic changes. Some siblings are able to have mature, heartfelt conversations as adults, with the aim of smoothing rough edges, and a desire to carve new possibilities. Some may say: You pick your friends, not your family.Ž This expression can be quite instructive in guiding us through the sibling drama. We are born into our families, and may have limited, or no, ability to effect significant changes in the dynamics. Accepting the realities, and let-ting go of grudges, requires flexibility and a willingness to forgive and/or apologize. However, when we strive to fill our lives with gratifying relationships and meaningful pursuits, we often take important steps to build a full life apart from our family of origin. It is within our reach to pickŽ gratifying connec-tions that may hopefully lessen the pow-erful sting of hurtful family wounds.

HEALTHY LIVING j c t e linda NIH launches first national Down syndrome registryThe National Institutes of Health has launched DS-Connect, a Web-based health registry that will serve as a national health resource for people with Down syndrome and their families, researchers and health-care providers. The Down syndrome community has voiced a strong need for a cen-tralized, secure data-base to store and share health information. DS-Connect fills that need, and helps link individu-als with Down syndrome to the doctors and scien-tists working to improve their health and quality of life,Ž said Yvonne T. Maddox, deputy direc-tor of the NIHs Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, which funded and devel-oped the registry. Participation in the registry is free and voluntary. Individuals with Down syndrome, or family mem-bers on their behalf, may sign up to cre-ate personalized profiles with informa-tion about their health histories, includ-ing symptoms, diagnoses and medical visits. The website has been designed to ensure that all information remains confidential. The site will separate users names from their health information, so that individuals may compare their health information with that of all other participants in an anonymous manner. If participants give permission to be contacted, the registry coordinator can inform them of research studies in which they may be interested. Results from these studies will help researchers better understand Down syndrome and how to treat its accompanying health problems across the lifespan. DS-Connect is for people of all ages, not just children,Ž said Dr. Maddox. Right now, we dont have much data on older individuals with Down syndrome, and thats been a problem. People with Down syndrome are living longer, and researchers and physi-cians will require information about the health issues and needs of these individuals to make recommendations about their health care.Ž The Down Syndrome Consortium, a public-private group established in 2011 to foster the exchange of infor-mation on Down syndrome research, will be a critical player in helping to dissemi-nate information about the registry to the Down syn-drome community. The con-sortium includes individu-als with Down syndrome and their family members, representatives from profes-sional societies and advocacy groups, and NIH scientists. Weve been fortunate to have so many experts and advocates provide input on this effort,Ž said Dr. Maddox. The establishment of this registry is a tremendous step forward for Down syndrome research, and the resource will become all the more beneficial as more individuals join in the months and years ahead.Ž For more information, visit https:// Q

Q Jupiter Medical Center Breast Cancer events Connect mind, body and soul At The Spa at PGA National ADVERTISEMENT Ask The Health & Beauty Experts ASK THE DENTAL EXPERT Question: My upper denture makes me “Gaggie.” I hear a lot about implants. What can implants do for me? Can they be mixed with a denture? Answer: The “gagginess” you get from your denture comes from having your palate covered. The importance of having a palate on your upper denture is to create suction. It is this suction that holds your denture in place. An implant is a supportive device. It can either support an abutment that holds a crown or it can support an abutment that retains a denture. In addition to reinforcing a restoration, implants maintain the bone it is placed in. If you place implants in strategic positions around your upper arch, you could then hold your denture in position and remove the need for the palate. This would then allow you reduce the amount of plastic your tongue feels — improving the feel and comfort of your denture and ending your feeling of “gagginess.” Another benefit of not having a palate to your denture is that food will taste better. Our palates are covered in tiny taste buds besides the ones on our tongues. An upper denture covers these, so food has less taste. Yes, implants can be mixed with your dentures. As you can see, implants can provide you with more benefits than just retention. There are also a number of “fixed” options available (these are not removable) that a skilled implant dentist could offer you depending on your personal situation.

Frequently the spouse will complain of loud snoring that keeps them awake. As the snoring intensifies the individual holds their breath to the point the listener jostles the person to get them to awaken and start breathing. The longer between respirations the more serious apnea becomes because the heart rate drops and may progress to a heart attack! In it’s milder form the patient will awaken tired, fall asleep easily during the day even when driving a car. The reason for the excessive fatigue is the individual never gets into the REM level of sleep. REM or rapid eye movement is the important period of sleep when we “recharge” our batteries. If we are continually awakening to start breathing our brain never gets the sleep it needs. High blood pressure, headaches, depression, weight gain and other serious problems develop with sleep apnea. A diagnosis of sleep apnea is made from the history. If suspected, a monitored sleep study is done that measures the number of times the breath is held, level of Oxygen saturation, heart rate and time in each level of sleep. Based upon the number of spells in a night, the severity of the condition is made. The treatment of the apnea is a CPAP machine that blows air into our mouth and/or nose to keep the palate from blocking the airway. Patients who cannot tolerate the CPAP are candidates for surgery.

For more information about Hanley Center, call 866-442-6539, or visit For additional infor-mation about Leadership Florida, visit Q Energy concerns shape Middle East policiesA recent Money and Investing column suggested the real reason behind the Syrian conflict was a war over a proposed pipeline to transport natural gas out of the Persian Gulf (the loca-tion of the largest natural gas find in the world) and into the European markets. That column generated a lot of interest and questions by readers. The column suggested that there was a lot more at stake than the critical humanitarian issue. There was dispute whether the pipeline would originate in Qatar, cross Saudi Arabia and into Syria or start in Iran and cross Iraq and into Syria. All roads would cross Syria, which could then further transport via another pipeline into Europe or liquefy the gas and ship by LNG tanker into Europe. Qatars proposal was rejected by Syria in 2009; one year later, Syria pursued a deal with Iran; by July 2012, Iran, Iraq and Syria had signed a memo of understanding, which was coincident with a civil war in Damascus. Long before the pipeline dispute, there were long standing economic rivalries and differences in religious and political objectives amongst more than 20 countries. The major players and their agendas are listed below. Russia has wanted to use its energy strength to direct foreign policy/ rela-tionships in the Middle East and Far East. In recent years, Russia has been the largest exporter of crude and the largest exporter of crude and natural gas com-bined) to the world. Energy profits (from the three state-controlled energy compa-nies of GAZPROM, Rosneft and Trans-neft) have provided 50 percent of Rus-sias budgets revenues. Russia extracted premiums for its natural gas from Euro-pean countries due to near monopolistic control: Russia was 34 percent of all EU gas imports but 100 percent of most Bal-tic country imports; 80 percent of Czech Republic and 25 percent for Germany. Russia understands that its monopolistic hold over much of Europe will come to an end when Qatars or Irans pipeline is built. Possibly all is not lost for Russia if it can organize a gas cartel/alliance with Iran, Iraq and Syria. Saudi Arabia has wanted to install a Sunni government in Syria. It feels that Iran is a major threat to Sunni led countries. Controlling Syria and having Qatar build the pipeline keeps Iran (and Shiites) weak. Saudi emissaries are mak-ing plenty of trips to Russia to get them to agree to depose Assad and form an energy alliance; Russia declines to date. Iran wants to get rid of sanctions. It wants to create economic ties with Europe and closer ties with Iraq and Syria (to the detriment of Western countries and Israel) by offering much needed natural gas. Under the proposed Iran-Iraq-Syria pipeline to transport 4.1 trillion cubic feet per day, Iraq gets 18 percent of pipeline transport as does Syria; if sanctions are lifted, Europe could conceivably get the balance. Iran is largely Shiite controlled and will do anything and everything to block Saudi Arabias installation of a Syrian Sunni government. Iran wants to keep Syria as an ally in that an attack by Israel on Irans nuclear would still allow Hezbollah in Lebanon to strike Israel; Hezbollah gets its arms and support out of Iran through Syrian land passage. Iraq seems to have no allegiance to the U.S. and it can create a sweetheart natural gas deal with Iran. Qatar wants to develop another form of delivery of natural gas other than LNG or liquefied natural gas delivered by LNG carrierƒ through the Strait of Hormuz and on to the Far East for approximately 85 percent of their pro-duction. But to get north to Europe, the LNG tanker has to get through the Strait of Hormuz, and then another strait by the Horn of Africa and then through the Suez Canal. It might well be that Qatar wants alternatives to shipping through only these choke points.Ž In the Persian Gulf, Qatars North Field is adjacent to Irans claim in South Pars Field. It stands to reason that if Europe is getting gas through their pipe-line, that a future dispute with Iran about natural gas territories will have European support in favor of Qatar, their source of pipeline gas. Europe, loaded with EU problems, wants to find ways to create jobs, have (at least) Germany remain industrially competitive and foster energy security and diversity. Europes electricity costs are up some 40 percent since 2005. Russia has monopolized EUs natural gas. Per FERCs estimate (for October 2013 landed LNG pricesŽ), natural gas/mcf in Spain will be $10.07 (with the U.K. and Belgium slightly lower). It is hard for Germany to compete with the U.S. at $3.20. (Louisiana price estimate). Europe would love an alternative to Russian gas. Europe might prefer gas from Qatar but it also might take gas out of Iran. China wants more natural gas. Its pretty hard for China to get gas by pipe-line from Russia (but they are trying); they will get most from LNG. Currently, the Chinese are expected to pay $14.95 in October, which is still better than Japan and Korea at $15.35. Turkey was nixed in the Iranian to Syrian pipeline and has supposedly been housing leadership of the Syrian rebels. But Turkey might not want to give up a chance to be the last mile of the pipeline connection into Europe and might ultimately side with Iran. Israel fears Iran and would have no interest in Iranian economic strength from a new pipeline. Iranian profits would further fund Hezbollah and other anti-Israel extremists. The outcome? It seems as if the U.S., though center stage, has less and less voice in Syrias outcome as those with the greatest economic interests. Clearly, Russia has taken the drivers seat. The Russians distrust Saudi Arabia and have strong alliances with Syria and Iran. They will fashion a deal that is best for them, and it will be energy related.

Here’s a county-by-county breakdown of FPL consumers with electric vehicles, as of July 10: >> Lee County: 136 electric vehicles, the majority being Chevy Volt >> Charlotte County: 41 electric vehicles, also led by Chevy Volt >> Collier County: 84 electric vehicles, led by Chevy Volt with a close follow by Tesla Model S >> Palm Beach County: 516 electric vehicles with 246 Chevy Volt and 124 Tesla Model S Theres a little friendly competition going on within the ranks of Florida Power & Light. Workers are compet-ing to see who can best maximize their fuel economy. Claude Masters, FPL manager of vehicle acquisition and fuel, calls it an internal phenomenon,Ž a new com-pany culture focused on fuel savings. FPL has amassed more than 550 vehicles that are either plug-in hybrids, electric-gas hybrids or all-electric. These electric vehicles make up about 92 percent of the companys light-duty fleet. The largest utility in the state, FPL possesses one of the largest hybrid-electric fleets in the nation. Automotive Fleet Magazine ranks us up with the big guys: UPS, FedEx, Coca-Cola,Ž Mr. Masters says. Were No. 8 in the nation. Thats a pretty good statis-tic.Ž FPL has gone electric, the com-pany wants to go more electric and it wants you to go electric too. But FPL sells electric-ity. To those who think an electric company pushing electric cars might be self-serving, FPL management maintains that besides being better for the environment and reducing the countrys dependency on foreign oil, electric vehicles lower their operating costs, and if their operating costs go down, customer bills could go down. Electric vehicles are 80 percent cheaper to operate,Ž says Anne-Louise Seabury, FPL Electric Vehicles Pro-gram Manager. Reducing our operat-ing costs helps us reduce customer bills.Ž FPL execs want to increase their electric fleet across all product lines, meaning any new vehicle they acquire, they want it to be electric, even medi-um or heavy-duty trucks. The com-pany was instrumental in the develop-ment of hybrid-electric bucket trucks, designing the specs and deploying the first truck of its kind in 2005. In 2012 we were able to reduce our CO2 emissions by 2,500 metric tons,Ž says Mr. Mas-ters, attributing the decline to the companys hybrids, plug-in hybrids, all-electric vehicles and their bio-diesel fleet, which includes hybrid-electric bucket trucks. We calculated 295,000 gallons of fuel reduction over the last year,Ž Mr. Masters continues. And were seeing that number grow.Ž Its difficult to convert those gallons into monetary terms, as the price of fuel fluctuates, but Mr. Masters says if you multiply those gallons by a conservative $3.50 per gallon, thats over a million dollars in fuel savings. Mr. Masters says FPL has made public commitments to increase their electric fleet because they want to mobilize the marketplace. Our intent is to send a signal to these guys: If you build it, we will buy it,Ž he says. And were putting our money where our mouth is. For instance, we have 74 hybrid-electric bucket trucks and we intend to add another 30 to 35 this next year ƒ These guys building these medium, heavy-duty trucks, we want them to know, the market is real.Ž Growing up as a mechanic, working on cars all his life, Mr. Masters cannot help but be surprised by how easy elec-tric vehicles are to maintain. He says when you pop the hood, it looks more like the trunk, theres nothing under-neath it. He says your main maintenance will be your tires. Talking about alternative fuel, Mr. Masters says natural gas seems to be the soup du jour,Ž but when trying to decide whether to go the natural-gas route or the electric-hybrid route, he likes to remind peo-ple that natural gas does not have an established infrastructure, but when it comes to electric, the infrastructures already there. Even in the exaggerated event of every Floridian going out and buying an electric car tomorrow, Ms. Seabury says FPL would not be concerned with their electric grid. The company has noticed most electric car owners charge their cars at night, not at a time of peak power use. People overcomplicate electric vehicles. They are very simple,Ž says Ms. Seabury, who has been driving an electric car for over two years. You plug it in at night, the car does its thing while youre sleeping, you wake up and go about your business.Ž Ms. Seabury says Floridians are responding to the appeal, with more than 5,200 electric vehicle owners in the state. She encourages anyone to take a test drive when they can. Beyond saving money and the envi-ronment, she says people buy electric cars for the thrill of the ride. Lee County Electric Cooperative has been keeping an eye on electric vehicles. LCEC serves 200,000 customers in five counties. Public Rela-tions Manager Karen Ryan says thats small potatoesŽ compared to FPLs 4.6 million accounts across 35 coun-ties. Our fleet, although adequate for our customer base, is not that large. We have an excellent preventative maintenance program so we typically dont need to purchase replacement vehicles that often, one or two a year maybe,Ž Ms. Ryan says. LCEC has approximately 65 heavyduty trucks and 150 smaller trucks and vans. But compared to FPLs total fleet of roughly 3,500 vehicles, Ms. Ryan says LCEC savings would be limited. We are keeping an eye on the developments in vehicle technology and exploring our options to see when electric vehicles might be beneficial for our business,Ž Ms. Ryan says. The last time we evaluated it, it was not cost effective for us.Ž LCEC purchased a hybrid car in 2002 and Ms. Ryan says when the tim-ing is right, the company will be part of the electric vehicle movement. As far as the conundrum of electric utili-ties pushing electric cars, Ms. Ryan agrees with FPL. Promoting electric vehicles isnt self-serving for utilities for several reasons. We have an obligation to help preserve/conserve natural resources,Ž she says. Conserving fuel resources that are used to power vehicles makes a positive impact on the customers wallet. If you compare the cost of a kilowatt to the cost of a gallon of gaso-line, there is no comparison.Ž Q COURTESY PHOTOThe FPL fleet includes hybrids, plug-in hybrids, all electric vehicles and biodiesel vehicles.SEABURY MASTERS

Wardian cases sheltered plants from the smog BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELHouse plants were popular with our ancestors, but indoor plants took a lot of work. No bug spray, no packaged topsoil or plant food, not even a good selection of pots was available. In 1829 Dr. Nathaniel Bagshaw Ward of London invented the Wardian case.Ž His ferns were dying in Londons smoke-filled air. Then he noticed that some of the sealed test tubes he was using to germinate seeds also held other seedlings starting to grow. So he created a large glassed-in enclosure to grow his ferns. The Ward-ian case, named after the doctor, soon became popular not only with botanists, but also with the general public. They were featured in many homes. At first, ferns were the most popular plant to grow in the cases, but scientists and explorers also used them to bring new plants from other continents. It is said that tea and rubber plants made the ocean trip to new countries in the cases, were planted and started new agri-cultural industries. The Wardian cases used in homes were made of glass and iron. Some sat on a matching table or stand, and some were made to look like small houses. It was the first terrarium „ a closed space to let plants grow „ and the condensed moisture kept them from drying out. Vintage Wardian cases are not easy to find, but theyre avail-able. Copies were made, too, and theyre still being made. A case made by the well-known American firm of J.W. Fiske, a Victorian maker of iron furniture and garden fountains, sold last fall for $5,795 at Neal Auction Co. in New Orleans. Q: We have an old wooden dining room set that includes a table with one leaf, four chairs and a china cabinet. The only mark I can find is Jeffer-son Woodworking Co.Ž on the tables extension rails. History and value? A: Jefferson Woodworking Co. was in busi-ness in Louisville, Ky., in the late 1910s into at least the early 1920s. It did not make your table. It made table extension rails for various furniture manu-facturers. Still, your set is close to 100 years old and could sell for more than $500 if its in excel-lent condition. Q: I have a General Electric Youth Electron-ics clock radio. My aunt and uncle gave it to many years ago. The numbers on the clock face have 12 different Disney charac-ters, and there are two dials with characters on them for setting the time and alarm. The radio dial is a big, hard plastic Mickey Mouse face. Below the dial it reads Walt Disney Productions.Ž Can you give me any information as to age and value? A: Your Mickey Mouse radio is more than 40 years old. General Electric was licensed to make radios for Disney from 1970 to 1975. The radio sells for less than $20 unless you have the original box. The box adds about $50. Q: I have a silver tea service that includes a teapot, sugar bowl and creamer marked Tiffany & Co., quality 925-1000.Ž The sets tray is marked Dixon & Sons, Shef-field.Ž Can you tell me the value of this tea set?A: The tray was not originally part of the set, since it was made by a different company. Charles Lewis Tiffany opened a retail store in New York in 1837. The name of the store became Tiffany & Co. in 1853. Its still in business. Tiffany & Co. set the stan-dard for sterling silver in the United States, which is 92.5 percent silver. James Dixon began working in silver in Sheffield, England, in 1806. His company was called James Dixon & SonsŽ by 1835. The compa-ny made Britannia, nickel silver and silver-plated wares. It was out of business by 1992. The quality numbers on the teapot, sugar and creamer indicate they are sterling sil-ver, but the tray is silver-plated. The name TiffanyŽ adds value to just about anything. Your set might be worth close to $1,000.Q: Through the years, I have collected hundreds of pieces of Blue Willow. The marks on the backs of the dishes include Royal China,Ž Allertons Wil-lowŽ and Buffalo Pottery.Ž A few were even made in Japan. Have the dishes increased in value? A: Willow pattern dishes continue to sell well because so many people collect the traditional pattern, which pictures three figures on a bridge, birds, trees and a Chinese landscape. The pattern, inspired by a Chinese design without the figures, was introduced in England in 1780. Since then, it has been copied by pottery companies in England, the United States, Japan and other countries. Values depend on age, quality and maker. Tip: For every 24 inches of horizontal shelving in your bedroom, den or library, fill the space with about 20 books. Books need air.

It sold for $5,795 last month at Neal Auction Co. in New Orleans.

OUR THEATRE BEGINS WITH YOU!JOIN OUR CAST OF VOLUNTEERS! V OLUNTEERING IS FUN LINKEDIN SPONSORED BY: SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSNo cheap dateMoney complicates relationships. So much of the power dynamics in our modern-day courtships are regulated by who controls the cash. For me, money is especially weighted. Im a writer by trade, which doesnt lend itself to big paychecks. This wouldnt be a problem if I had studied writing in school, if all my former college mates were sunk deep in the artistic hustle, if „ like me „ they were constantly applying for grants and teaching gigs and other ways to piece together a liv-ing. But unfortunately, I studied business.Most of my former classmates now work on Wall Street. They make in a day what I make in a year. And thats not hyperbole. So when an old friend from school invited me out to coffee recently, I was a bit nervous. He was always someone I admired „ smart, ambitious, with a clear idea of what he wanted in life. Now hes an investment banker, and Im proud of his success „ if a touch intimidated by his money. When I think of him, I remember a story from the Twitter feed Overheard in the Goldman Sachs ElevatorŽ that went like this: A woman in a bar asked a Goldman analyst what he would do if he woke up one morning and there was $10 million in his bank account. Id ask where the rest of my money went,Ž he said. On the day of our friend-date (datedate?) I agonized over what to wear. A dress? Jeans? I didnt want to look like I was trying too hard. I also desperately didnt want to look poor. I arrived at the coffee shop a half hour early to give myself time to settle in. A waiter came to my table and I ordered a cup of tea. When he set the tea down a few minutes later, I asked to pay my bill right then. He seemed hesitant, but I insisted. I didnt want my banker friend to pick up the check for both of us. I needed to show I could buy my own damn tea. He arrived exactly on time, looking dapper in a pinstripe business suit. His wealth floated around him like a fine cologne „ I could almost smell it „ and I was suddenly, fumblingly nervous. I bumped the table as I stood to hug him and my tea sloshed out of its cup. I had to ask the waiter for a napkin so I could clean up my mess. The banker regarded me calmly, all cool sophistication, and ordered a cap-puccino. He took careful sips as we caught up on the last 10 years of our lives. We shared updates on our fami-lies and laughed about college. He was the same as I remembered him, but with a very expensive veneer. At the end of an hour, he looked at his watch. I have a flight to catch,Ž he said.We stood and hugged again. This time I managed not to bump the table. He gave me a wave and a smile and then disappeared out the door. I sat down, flush with the excitement of our meeting, and it took me a full minute to realize hed stuck me with the bill for his coffee.

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 10-16, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYCOURTESY PHOTOS ABOVE: Architects bumped out the eastern side of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre. Windows now light the first floor lobby and the second floor Green Room. There will be ex-terior space for patrons to mingle.LEFT: The view from the front door into the lobby shows the upstairs Green Room. The box office is to the right.STEINBECKFrom page B1household name,Ž William Hayes, the theaters producing artistic director, said when he announced the new sea-son. He said he always hopes to draw new audiences to the theater and turn those audiences into subscribers. So far it has paid off. The theater ended its first season in its new space on Clematis Street with about 3,700 subscribers; its beginning this season with nearly 4,200, according to Sue Ellen Beryl, the managing director. Its a happy number, which translates into happy actors. Its nice to be where youre comfortable. Rehearsal is an uncomfortable situation and they make it comfortable as you can make it,Ž said actor Dennis Creaghan, who returns this season to star as Candy in Of Mice and Men.Ž He has performed at the company several times, most recently last season in Dramaworks production of Edward Albees A Delicate Balance.Ž But playing sad-sack Candy is quite a change. Its fun, especially after the patrician Brahman character in A Delicate Balance,Ž Mr. Creaghan said by phone from his home in Delray Beach. For an actor, change is good.We got so caught up in the last half of the century with actors playing themselves in different situations. It was never meant to happen with the Method, but I think thats what hap-pened,Ž he said. Immersing ones self in myriad roles is an opportunity. This way, you get a chance to explore your range, which to me is the mark of an actor,Ž he said. Perhaps it is the mark of Mr. Creaghan. Candy is about as far as you can get from a Brahman. Of Candy, he said, Hes missing parts of his body. Not only physically, but mentally, hes at the end. If he loses this job, hes finished. And when these two guys come in and he finds out what theyve got planned, a light goes off for him.Ž After all, Candy is a worker, or swamper,Ž who has lost one of his hands in a farm accident. If he loses his job, hell starve. Its logical that he is excited when George and Lenny, the central charac-ters in the 1937 tale, talk of plans to buy a farm on which Candy also could live. These people are so sad, theyre so lonely. The only ones who have a rela-tionship are Lenny and George,Ž Mr. Creaghan said. Steinbeck really paints with a heavy hand. These people are really alone. They are itinerates, they go bumping off one another.Ž He sees parallels to current events.So many lost their homes,Ž he said. So many of these ranches were owned by these corporations. Its a little like today, the disparity between the very rich and the rest of us. People didnt own their land anymore. Just itiner-ants. Thats what Steinbeck was look-ing at, and he doesnt come up with a happy end.Ž It wasnt a happy end, or beginning, for that matter. George and Lennie are on the road after being run out of town after the mentally slow Lennies love of fondling soft things resulted in an accusation of rape. Once they head to a ranch near Soledad, Calif. „ the Spanish word for lonelinessŽ „ the pair again runs into problems as gentle giant Lennie doesnt know his own strength. His attraction to Curleys wife, daughter-in-law to the boss, has tragic consequences. Then theres Candy, and his derelict dog. That presents its own challenges.What he does now, is theyve given him a job mopping,Ž Mr. Creaghan said. I guess hell be mopping at some point and physically handle a mop somehow.Ž This is not Mr. Creaghans first stab at Steinbeck. I played Whitt in London,Ž Mr. Creaghan. Whitt is one of the ranch hands. I got an email from one of my friends in London, who said, You know that was 30 years ago? And you know I just hear those voices. I dont think Ive ever done that where you come back to the same play after such a wide period.Ž In those 30 years, Mr. Creaghan has been seen on an array of stages across the country, and across the Atlantic. Television viewers may recognize him from guest appearances on Law and OrderŽ and Ed,Ž among other shows. He also played a museum director in the 1999 remake of The Thomas Crown Affair.Ž Locally, he has received kudos for his work at the former Caldwell and Mosaic theaters, as well as star turns in Dramaworks productions of David Mamets American BuffaloŽ and Conor McPhersons The WeirŽ and A Deli-cate Balance.Ž But the writing is different in Steinbeck, who wrote Of Mice and MenŽ as a novella in 1937 and adapted it for the stage that same year. J. Barry Lewis will direct this production, which also stars John Leonard Thompson as George, Brendan Titley as Lennie, and has a cast that includes Paul Bodie, Cliff Burgess, Frank Con-verse, Betsy Graver, Christopher Hal-laday, Wayne Steadman and Ricky Waugh. For me, Mamet is more about style than he is about substance. Youve got to get his style, and Im not crazy about it,Ž Mr. Creaghan said. With Stein-beck, its very stark, like Hemingway. Curleys wife, shes never given a name. Its just spare.Ž But what a tale it is.Its a great story. Its very linear and it all happens in a matter of three days,Ž he said. Like a Greek tragedy, it starts and it propels to the end.Ž Q >>What: John Steinbeck’s “Of Mice and Men” >>When: Oct. 11-Nov. 10 >>Where: Palm Beach Dramaworks’ Don & Ann Brown Theatre, 201 Clematis St., downtown West Palm Beach>>Cost: $60 for all performances.

Thats right „ Green, as in The Green Room, named for philanthropist Roe Green, who kicked in $1.5 million toward $2.5 million in renovations that include 62 premium seats in the existing second-floor space to create a private upstairs club level. The second-floor renovation includes a private entrance, glassed-in elevator, bar and restrooms, all adjacent to the 62 new seats. Downstairs, there are larger restrooms and an expanded lobby. Through it all, Maltz employees have seen months of demolition and jack-hammering. Now, the vision for the space is becom-ing obvious. I walk through it every day, at least once, that Im here. Part of that is just for my own edification and pleasure because I love process, the same way I love to see a show come together,Ž said Andrew Kato, the the-aters producing artistic director. His enthusiasm was infectious as he walked through the space, which was teeming with construction crews, dur-ing a tour with Jennifer Sardone-Shiner, the theaters director of marketing. He paused to point at the auditorium itself, which is being used as storage during the construction. The open space above the mezzanine level, where the seats will be installed, once was home to Burt Reynolds pri-vate box in the buildings 1970s-80s heyday as the actors dinner theater. But changes will be more immediately obvious than that. Visitors to the theater will see the renovations as soon as they walk in the front door. If they look up, they will see the glassed-in second-story space that is The Green Room. In the past, banners for the current season of shows would have hung there. Look to the right, and there now is a large, contemporary box office space that is open to the lobby, much like a hotel concierge desk. The lobby feels much larger, too. The new, much larger restrooms have been pushed to the back of the building, and there are now hallways into each space so lines no longer wind out into the lobby. There also is a stand-alone family restroom. To the east, the space that once was taken up by the bar and restrooms has been blown out for more lobby floor space. Architects for the Maltz also bumped out the buildings east side and added windows „ the better for passers-by to see activities in the space, which is Floridas largest regional theater. A bar that appears to be double the size of the old bar fills the space in front of those large windows. There are entrances at either end, so patrons can enter and exit the building with greater ease. During the tour, it was obvious the building has hit its home stretch. Drywall and plumbing fixtures have been installed. The new bar was in place. Upstairs, painters were applying a first coat to drywall, and other crews were sweeping up scraps of drywall and other construction bits. The theater plans a free open house, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 28. Its sea-son gets underway with Dial M for Murder,Ž which opens in previews Oct. 27 and has its official opening night on Oct. 31. The Maltz is at 1001 E. Indiantown Road, Jupiter. For information, call 575-2223 or visit Q Maltz Jupiter Theatre hits home stretch in renovations BY SCOTT GREEN KATO CREAGHAN

But accept it as a rejection of your offer, not of you. A friend from the past could re-emerge by w eeks end. Q SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A flow of positive energy turns a work project you didnt want to do into something you actually love doing. Now, take that attitude into your social, inti-mate life -and enjoy what follows. Q SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Working hard to meet your professional goals is fine. But dont neglect your private life, especially where it concerns your more cherished relation-ships. Q CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) PatienceŽ remains the key word in dealing with an emotionally sen-sitive situation involving a close friend or family member. Help comes your way by weeks end. Q AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) With new information coming in, its a good time to rethink some of your goals without taking suggestions from others, no matter how well-meaning they might be. Q PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Making progress on your project is relatively easy in the early part of the week. A problem could arise mid-week. But all goes swimmingly once its resolved. Q ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A colleague might offer to open a door for you professionally. But before you walk through it, be sure this favorŽ isnt attached to an obligation you might find difficult to discharge. Q TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your creativity, your persistence and your reli-ability could lead to a major career shift. Be sure to use that other Taurean trait, your practicality, when discussing what the job offers. Q GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A changing situation might require some adjustments you might not have been pre-pared to make. However, flexibility in this matter could be the best course to follow at this time. Q CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Youre in a period of fluctuating moods, which is not unusual for the Moon Child. Your emo-tions stabilize by the 25th. Meanwhile, try to hold off making major decisions until then. Q LEO (July 23 to August 22) That keen sense of perception helps you hunt down those minute details that others over-look. And, of course, your Leonine ego will accept the expected praise with good grace. Q VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Be careful not to be confrontational when raising a work-related issue. Better to make a request than a demand. And, of course, be prepared to back up your case with facts.QBORN THIS WEEK: Holding fast to your principles, no matter what, inspires others to follow your exam-ple.

Even with tools like CarFax and AutoCheck, the used car customer may not really have the information needed to make an informed decision. One business is out to change that. North Palm Beach resident Bill McLaughlin has come up with an alternative — one he hopes changes the way all of America shops for cars and trucks. Mr. McLaughlin, the former president and CEO of Starwood Vacation Resorts, was looking for something post retirement to “get him out of the house” when he hit on a way to not only make money but help others. “I’ve always been a car guy,” he said. Setting himself up as an auto manufacturer’s representative, he began to attend closed auctions, buying as many as 15 off-lease vehicles at a time, mostly for Northeast dealerships looking for rust-free Florida cars. His client list grew to include new car dealers from New York to Georgia — dealers sold on Mr. McLaughlin’s stringent testing and practice of charging the dealerships only $500 over his cost. He started AutoMax of America in 1992, scouring the country for luxury brands, transporting them to Florida then shipping them out as soon as possible “AutoMax doesn’t look like your typical car lot,” he said of the 5401 North Haverhill Rd #105 in West Palm Beach. “It looks more like a maintenance place with 30-50 cars set up to ship to different parts of the country. Through word of mouth and friends of friends we started getting requests direct from the consumer and so we set up a website.” A car buyer can log on to automax and enter in exactly the type of car he or she is looking for from color, make, options, model to mileage. “I put in an order last Monday and we just picked up two trucks from Bill in less than a week,” said Buddy Wittmann of Wittmann Building Corporation in Palm Beach. “There were only five of these trucks in the U.S. You couldn’t ask for a more reliable and honest salesperson. “It takes about a week for Mr. McLaughlin to find the requested car. He charges consumers the same $500 over wholesale fee he charges dealerships and if you are a veteran or in the military, the price is reduced to $250.“I have access to 100,000 to 150,000 cars every week,” Mr. McLaughlin said. “I can find the exact car you are looking for. I charge less than what the dealerships charge in dealer’s fees.” Mr. McLaughlin, who served four years in the military, was born in West Point. His father was an instructor there. He says he has been around the military his whole life and is committed to helping active service men and women, and veterans, find affordable cars. “I don’t make any money on those cars,” he said. “It’s hard to find a quality car for less than $10,000. People don’t realize how much work goes into what we do.” Mr. McLaughlin’s cars come with the CarFax and AutoCheck reports in addition to his own condition report and post-sale inspection. He recommends all car buyers purchase extended service warranties because the cars he specializes in — BMW, Acura, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus — can be expensive to service. If your warranty is about to expire or you don’t have one call and ask about our extended warranty service.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 10-16, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15The Dish: Dali Chicken The Place: P.F Changs China Bistro, The Gardens Mall, 3101 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens; 691-1610 The Price: $9.95 lunch, $13.95 The Details: P.F. Changs promises this is the spiciest dish on its menu. And if thats the case, connoisseurs of spice may be disappointed.Thats too bad because this concoction of chicken breast meat, slivers of potato, green onions and dried red chilies is tasty, and the chicken is tender. But spicy? Not as hot as youd think, which probably suits most palates.The restaurant is large and cacophonous, but servers were friendly and efficient, even if the fare does not pack heat. Its a great spot for an Asian treat if youre at the mall. Q „ Scott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE While Cabo Flats Cantina and Tequila Bar may be popular for eve-nings filled with karaoke, drinking and dancing, the traditional Mexican food doesnt go unnoticed. We keep the food as basic and authentic as possible,Ž says Antonio Brodziak, the head chef at Cabo Flats. We arent creating fancy dishes that look better than they taste.Ž Mr. Brodziak, originally from Mexico, attended school for electrical engineer-ing; however, he says that his passion for culinary shined through. At the time, in Mexico, being a chef was considered more of just a job than a career,Ž he says. I was so excited that my father agreed to send me to culi-nary school so that I could learn more about what I loved.Ž Mr. Brodziaks passion for cooking sparked at a young age, when he cooked with his grandmother. Preparing authentic food with his grandmother and attending culinary school at the Universidad Ibero Americana taught him about different spices and recipes that helped him become the chef that he is today. New York, San Francisco, Denver and Acapulco are just some of the places where he says he was able to display his culinary talent as well as learn under other master chefs. I worked under Alicia DAngeli, the president of the Mexican Culinary Association,Ž he says. This really opened up a lot of doors for me.Ž Working at Madieras in Acapulco, and expanding his culinary experience, Mr. Brodziak says that he was exposed to Mexican flavors in fusion with other international flavors. But this was just the start of combining new flavors for Mr. Brodziak. When Mr. Brodziak moved to New York, he was exposed to French and Asian cook-ing techniques, which, he says, enabled him to combine all the flavors together to create masterpieces. Mr. Brodziak says that he wasnt thrilled about moving to Florida, but while working under New York restau-rateur Richard Sandoval, opportunity knocked for a Mexican restaurant in CityPlace. Though the restaurant only lasted for 11 months, Mr. Brodziak stayed in Florida, where he became the execu-tive sous chef at Frenchmans Creek for three years, owned his own restaurant for 10 months and opened Cabo Flats Cantina and Tequila Bar as the head chef in 2010. He likes the multigenerational appeal of Cabo Flats. We have lunch hours, happy hour, ladies night, karaoke night, and we even do Cabo Cares, which is our fundraising event,Ž says Mr. Brodziak. While the signature dishes on the menu are derived from personal reci-pes, there are also many items such as chicken wings and que pastaŽ that are simple fan favorites. Mr. Brodziak says that his favorite pick from the menu would the be Carne Asada, which is grilled skirt steak served over refried black beans topped with sauted onions, guacamole and a chile de arbol sauce served with plan-tains and cilantro rice. I work about 65 to 70 hours a week,Ž he says. Its a lot of hard work, but Im doing what I love and I cook with noth-ing but love.Ž Name: Antonio Brodziak Original hometown: Mexico City Restaurant: Downtown at the Gardens, 11701 Lake Victoria Gardens Ave., Palm Beach Gardens; 624-0024 or Mission: My mission is to make people happy and for everyone to have a nice time.Ž Cuisine: Contemporary Mexican Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? Im wearing Birkenstock shoes,Ž he says. It important to take care of your feet in the culinary indus-try. I just had new insoles made about a month ago!Ž What is your guilty culinary pleasure? Thai food,Ž he says. I just love the combination of sweet and spicy.Ž What advice would you give someone who wants to be a chef? If you want to be a chef, you need to be will-ing to work long hours,Ž he says. When you are a chef, your schedule is com-pletely opposite from others, and it is hard to get used to. But, the most satis-fying thing about being in this industry is when people tell you how much they love and enjoy your food.Ž Q In the kitchen with...ANTONIO BRODZIAK, Cabo Flats Cantina and Tequila Bar BY LOREN GUTENTAGlgutentag@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus Crab cakes, cook-offs and other charitable venturesBRODZIAK SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY Community Partners is hosting its 2nd Annual Palm Beaches Crab Cake Cook-Off to benefit the mental health needs of childhood victims of trauma, abuse and neglect.
