What remained, with his sig-nature in the corner, is a monumental testament to peace and communal living. There are, after all, no swords in this picture „ only scythes. Men and women are working or resting together, taking in the fall harvest. There is an obvious mar-riage of the pragmatic and the aesthetic; theyve used the land and their tools effi-ciently, but created something beautiful in the process. Together. If they hadnt, not all of them would be eating or living. Bruegels painting was one of six commissioned by a merchant in Antwerp, Belgium. Four of the five other works also survive, each of them a scene from the seasonal life the artist saw all around him: Haymaking,Ž Hunters in the Snow,Ž Gloomy DayŽ and The Return of the Herd.Ž The people working those fields lived in a world where the horizon was always a long ways away. To get to it, you had to rely on your own two feet, or on animals trained to carry or cart you. Try to imagine the sounds and sights and smells. No combustion machine had ever broken the silence of that world. No atmosphere had ever borne much more than wood smoke. Nobody had ever heard a single repetitive note of music or syllable of spoken word, because nothing had ever been recorded and thus nothing could be replayed and repeated. So every single sound was new, all the time, the way every single snowflake and every single human being is new, all the time. In a world of 425 million people or so back in Bruegels day, probably about 80 million populated the European conti-nent „ roughly as many as you could find today in California, New York and Florida, with Wyoming and Montana thrown in for good measure. But Bruegels The HarvestersŽ leaves me with the impression that in some ways, his world isnt much different than ours. Although thats an ordinary perception on my part, Bruegels painting is extraor-dinary. Art historians, in fact, describe the series as a watershed in the history of Western Art.Ž Heres why: The landscape is not laid down in paint to tell a religious story, or for that matter a political story „ say, the story of an aristocracy or a monarchy, an oligarchy or a democracy. Its point of view is not strictly European, although all its colors and characters are: the setting, the dress, the culture, even the food that will come from that harvest. Instead, the painting reflects what anyone might actually have seen, more or less. Its an image based on naturalŽ observations, not parochial expectations. Humanism,Ž the scholars call such a view, obviously struggling to find a word that fits. This is my point: What you see in the painting, if you ever spend time seeing it, is the elucidation of a civilization that works. Arguably, youd never have to read a single textbook in sociology or politi-cal science, or a single ruminative phi-losopher, or listen to a single soapbox orator, to understand how to go about progress „ if you could just look at this painting. But looking at paintings like this (and there are others), or listening to music that springs from a similarly humanist tradition, or reading political scientists or philosophers, or rolling your mind and running your tongue across the surface of words like those William Blake painted together 220 years after Bruegel, in Love and Harmony,Ž for example „ all of that will put the word liberalŽ next to your name, whether you want it there or not. It amounts to a significant part of a liberal education,Ž which, as the word liberalŽ suggests, frees you to escape myopia. Love and harmony combine,And around our souls intwine,While thy branches mix with mine, And our roots together join,Ž Blake wrote. People, especially children and the parents who are willing to pay for their university or college adventures, often debate the purpose of looking at paint-ings or listening to words like those. After all, they wont get you a job, in themselves. What about studying busi-ness, engineering, the lawŽ or medi-cine?Ž But when I see people such as U.S. Congressmen Ted Cruz and House Speaker John Boehner bring government to a halt because they disagree with a single policy passed into law by their political opponents, I realize that neither man has ever looked at The Harvesters.Ž In that failure, they become not conservativeŽ „ an honorable approach to political life and one closely related to liberal,Ž at least in America „ but exactly the opposite of liberal. They become both obstructionist and illiberal. And none of us needs that, on any side of the political line.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY amy GOODMANSpecial to Florida Weekly Single-payer prescription for what ails Obamacare We apologize for the inconvenience. The Marketplace is currently undergo-ing regularly scheduled maintenance and will be back up Monday 10/7/3013.Ž You read it right, 3013. That was the message on the homepage of the New York state health insurance exchange website recently. Yes, the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, is going through difficult birth pains, as the mar-ketplace websites went live only to crash. The government is not giving out numbers, but informed observers speculate that very few people have suc-ceeded in signing up for any of the plans as of press time. The ACA rollout occurred as Republicans shut down the government in their attempt to defund Obamacare. But their strategy backfired. Had there been no shutdown, all of the attention would have been on the disastrous roll-out. The fundamental issue, at the core of the health-care dispute, is typically ignored and goes unreported: The for-profit health-insurance industry in the United States is profoundly inefficient and costly, and a sane and sustainable alternative exists „ single-payer, other-wise known as expanded and improved Medicare for all. Just change the age of eligibility from 65 to zero. When Medicare was rolled out in 1966, it was rolled out in six months using index cards,Ž Dr. Steffie Woolhan-dler told me Monday. So if you have a simple system, you do not have to have all this expense and all this complexity and work.Ž Woolhandler is professor of public health at CUNY-Hunter College and a primary-care physician. She is a visiting professor at Harvard Medical School and the co-founder of Physi-cians for a National Health Program, or PNHP. PNHP is an organization with 17,000 physicians as members, advocat-ing for a single-payer health-care system in the U.S. What is single-payer? Critics denounce it as socialized medicine,Ž while ignoring that single-payer is already immensely popular in the U.S., as Medicare. A 2011 Harris poll found that Medicare enjoyed 88 percent sup-port from American adults, followed closely by Social Security. Woolhandler explained that with a Medicare-for-all system, you would get a card the day youre born, and youd keep it your entire life. It would entitle you to medi-cal care, all needed medical care, with-out co-payments, without deductibles. And because its such a simple system, like Social Security, there would be very low administrative expenses. We would save about $400 billion [per year].Ž Dr. Woolhandler went on, rather than thousands of different plans, tons of different co-payments, deductibles and restrictions „ one single-payer plan, which is what we need for all Americans to give the Americans really the choice they want ... not the choice between insurance company A or insurance com-pany B. They want the choice of any doctor or hospital, like you get with traditional Medicare.Ž Monthly premiums in most cases are expected to decrease with Obam-acares health-exchange systems, which will enhance the transparency and ease of comparison for people shopping for a health-insurance policy. If and when the technical problems are eliminated from the online health insurance exchang-es, and people can easily shop, there will likely be a huge number of people buying policies for the first time. The ACA offers important advances, which even single-payer advocates acknowledge: subsidies for low-income appli-cants will make insurance affordable for the first time. Medicaid expansion also will bring many poor people into the umbrella of coverage. Young people can stay on their parents insurance until the age of 26. People with so-called pre-existing conditions can no longer be denied insurance. While the ACA was deemed constitutional by the Supreme Court, the opin-ion gave states the option to opt out of the Medicaid expansion, which 26 states with Republican governors have done. A New York Times analysis of census data showed that up to 8 million poor people, mostly African-Americans and single mothers, and mostly in the Deep South, will be stranded without insur-ance, too poor to qualify for ACA sub-sidies, but stuck in a state that rejected Medicaid expansion. So, while partisan bickering (between members of Congress who have among the best health and benefits packages in the U.S.) has shut down the govern-ment, the populace of the United States is still straitjacketed into a system of expensive, for-profit health insurance. We pay twice as much per capita as other industrialized countries, and have poorer health and lower life expectancy. The economic logic of single-payer is inescapable. Whether Obamacare is a pathway to get there is uncertain. As Dr. Woolhandler summed up, Its only a road to single-payer if we fight for single-payer.Ž Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the co-author of The Silenced Majority,Ž a New York Times best-seller.Refusing to negotiate is the new reasonableness. After years of agonized media commentary about the failure of key play-ers in Washington to sit down and work out their differences, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid plans to win the fight over the government shutdown by rejecting all compromise, calling his opponents names and escaping blame in the press. It is a gambit available only to Democrats, who are presumed, almost by definition, to be free of any responsibil-ity for a shutdown. For his part, Presi-dent Barack Obama says he wont nego-tiate on the debt ceiling, so the current fight that Democrats wont negotiate over might roll into the next one they wont negotiate over, either. The basis of the refusal to talk is the notion that only an extremist with a bomb strapped to his chest would make a policy demand as government fund-ing is about to run out. This argument depends on a short memory. Before Republicans lost the shutdown fights with Bill Clinton in the mid-1990s, put-ting an end to such brinkmanship for the duration, the policy dispute on the cusp of a shutdown was a routine fea-ture of Washington. The fact checker at the Washington Post, Glenn Kessler, has batted down Obamas contention that no one has ever tried to attach extraneous mea-sures to a debt-ceiling measure before. As far back as 1973, Sens. Teddy Kenne-dy and Walter Mondale (aka nihilistic terrorists heedless of the damage they might cause to global financial mar-kets) tried to attach campaign-finance reform to a debt-limit increase. Friction between the executive and legislative branches is built into our system, and it is the nature of politics that both sides will seek to exploit whatever leverage they have. Obama didnt hesitate to use the impending fiscal cliff at the end of 2012 to force as big a tax increase as he could reason-ably get. Nonetheless, the latest stand-off is portrayed as the ruination of our politics. The real problem with the Republican position isnt that it is unprece-dented or inherently out of bounds, but that it is unlikely to achieve much. To put it mildly, the Republican handling of the continuing resolution has lacked the forethought traditionally associated with successful strategy. Every indication is that Reid welcomed a shutdown on the assumption that Republicans could be made to pay the price. Its not a bad bet, but the risk to Democrats is that they make their eagerness to press their partisan advantage too blatant. If the shutdown is so ruinous, presumably they should want to talk about how to resolve it. If the temporary suspension of specific government functions „ the parks, services to veterans „ is so harm-ful, presumably they should welcome Republican bills to restore them. The Democratic opposition to negotiation wont be sustainable if the standoff continues. The president is willing „ nay, eager „ to negotiate with an Iran regime that has American blood on its hands, even though it is safe to assume that the Iranians arent acting in good faith. Republicans who oppose his healthcare law, though, are beyond the pale and not worth seriously engaging. And they are the unreasonable ones? Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESHome aloneSeparation anxiety: It’s well-known among dogs, but cats suffer it, too. BY DR. MARTY BECKER AND KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickWhen you come home from work, is it to find that your cat has peed on the bed, yowled so desolately all day that the neighbors inquire a little nervously about her well-being, or scratched to ribbons the chair that you just had reupholstered with that expensive fabric? Dont chalk it up to spite. Your cat may be suffering from a condition that almost no one asso-ciates with the feline species: separation anxiety. Separation anxiety is more commonly associated with dogs, but despite their reputation for independence, cats can develop it as well, especially if they were orphaned as kittens or weaned too early. These cats may express their anxiety in destructive ways, such as scratching furniture. Older cats can develop separation anxiety in the wake of a divorce or death in the family. They are often more attached to people than they are given credit for, and cats who lose own-ers this way may pace and cry in search of them. Other signs of separation anxiety include depression, sulking, fighting with other cats, refusing to eat, not using the litter box, spraying urine on the owners clothing and compulsive grooming behaviors, such as licking or pulling at hair until it comes out. Why do cats do these things? It makes them feel better. Take spray-ing urine on your bedding or clothing „ please! Your belongings carry your scent, and applying her own scent to them makes your cat feel more secure, almost as if youre there. Its a compli-ment of sorts, even if its one youd rather not receive. Are you doomed to life with a bald, angry cat who doesnt want you to leave the house? You might not be able to cure your cats separation anxiety, but you can probably manage it suc-cessfully by enriching the environment and offering more playtime and atten-tion. To keep your cats mind off your absence, make being home more inter-esting for him. Leave out a puzzle toy filled with a meals worth of kibble. The time spent releasing the food from the toy is time not spent being destructive. And most cats tend to settle down after the first half-hour that youre gone. Rotate favorite interactive toys so your cat doesnt have a chance to get bored. Put them out only when youre going to be away from home. Give your cat some screen time „ TV screen, that is. Turn on the TV to a nature channel or play a DVD made for cats. The sights and sounds of birds, fish, squirrels and other animals can help hold a cats interest. Offer a room with a view „ and a gym. Install a window perch so your cat can watch the squirrels outside, and place a tall cat tree in an interesting spot so he can get some exercise climb-ing up and down it. Provide live entertainment in the form of a bird feeder set in front of the window or an aquarium placed where your cat can see it but not access it. If possible, build an enclosure in your yard that your cat can access from indoors. A chance to laze in the sun and roll in the grass is relaxing for every-one, including cats. Give your cat a favorite treat when you leave, not when you come home. Spend a few minutes once or twice a day playing with or petting your cat. If your cat knows hell get attention when youre home, hes less likely to be anx-ious when youre gone. If all else fails, consult a veterinary behaviorist. She may prescribe an anti-anxiety medication that can help your cat stay calm. Q Not all cats are loners. Some become anxious when left to their own devices.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYbenefit both the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center at the Jupiter Medical Cen-ter and the ArtCenter. I think one of the things that thrills me the most about the ArtyBras is to see the enthusiasm and creativity I see artists have for breast cancer treatment and awareness,Ž said Katie Deits, execu-tive director of the Tequesta ArtCenter. At the fashion show last year, a woman called me aside and said, I have been in chemotherapy all day and this fashion show has made me feel so much better. I nearly cried. Not only are we able to raise money, but were able to raise spir-its through art.Ž Many of the bras, like Carrie Dzamas Rah-Rah Bra 2,Ž which has a Univer-sity of Florida Gators theme, display a sense of humor. Others demonstrate their creators fighting spirit against cancer. I like to refer to myself as the bra wrangler,Ž said Barbra Broidy, the Art-Centers curator and a contributor to the exhibition. Every one is like a little trea-sure. Its interesting to read into them and find out what their story is.Ž After all, cancer seemingly touches everyone. I have found the world of people involved with cancer is very loving and very close,Ž said artist Nina Fusco, who is a breast cancer survivor. The creativity is fascinating. The event is outstanding.Ž Ms. Fusco, who creates pet portraits from cut and painted paper, fashioned a bra titled Breast in Show.Ž A portrait in paper of a little dog „ a Papillon „ peeps out from between the cups. I really enjoy working with the paper. I love working in the three-dimensional pieces,Ž she said. Its unusual, so if something is hanging in a gallery its like, I know Nina did that one.Ž She views events such as ArtyBras as an opportunity to give back, especially after being diagnosed with breast cancer three years ago. Im happy and healthy and appreciating each and every day. I greet it with a smile,Ž she said, acknowledging support from such groups as Healing Touch Bud-dies. Women donate their time to work with other women who have breast cancer. Its energy bal-ancing on the order of reiki,Ž she said. They were with me before my surgery. They were with me at the hospital the day of my surgery, and came to my home after.Ž That help was available for a year; Ms. Fusco will begin her own Healing Touch Buddies training in November. When I was first diagnosed with cancer, I had two visions from God,Ž she said. A voice told her, You shall cre-ate these. The first one was an original design, the first one being CCC,Ž as in Conquered Cancer Club.Ž That voice ordered her to create another work. The other one is called Reach, and my hand is reaching toward heaven,Ž she said. Other hands below are lifting her hand upward. With the loving support of fam-ily and friends God was helping me,Ž she said. God is there.Ž And Ms. Fusco will be there, too. Look for her to be sporting a gold sequined hat and jeans covered in diamonds.Ž It is that individuality that sets the bras apart. They all have a story and people to connect with,Ž said the ArtCenters Ms. Broidy, who has been a part of three of the four ArtyBras exhibitions. I love the ones that poke fun at something thats ordinarily pretty serious.Ž She has had a bra in each of the ArtyBras in which she has been involved. The first year that I did a bra, I lost a friend in December and the bras were due in January, so I made one the first year,Ž she said. The second year, I did one for my cousin, who was battling inflammatory breast cancer and I just lost her in December, two days after Christmas.Ž Ms. Broidys bra for this year, The Bronx Bombshell,Ž is in honor of yet another friend she has lost. He actually did not die of cancer. He died of sarcoidosis, which is a horrible disease,Ž she said. I just lost him in June.Ž And the baseball theme?He was the biggest Yankees fan ever,Ž Ms. Broidy said. That pain of parting can inspire artists to new heights. Just ask sculptor Norman Gitzen, who is participating in ArtyBras for a third year. People I know, good friends, lots of friends; Ive lost friends to cancer these last few years. And its not just breast cancer, but cancer period,Ž he said. Mr. Gitzen is known for his beautifully crafted hammered creations „ Siren,Ž a buxom mermaid sculpture he created a few years ago, drew headlines when the village of Wellington banned it as inap-propriate. It seems appropriate that he would craft a bra. I wanted it for a woman who would look like Conan the Barbarian,Ž he said. And if the copper and steel creation does seem more of that ancient world than this one, then so be it. After all, its title is Get Medieval on Breast Cancer.Ž I like fantasy. That Conan the Barbarian, that warrior theme in mythology, you kind of get an idea of what I mean when I use those words,Ž he said. Well, theyre fighting words.Its symbolism. You know, fighting back,Ž he said. I always think of medi-eval times and armor, when I think of warriors and fighting. I really dont like to think of guns that way. Id rather think of it in older terms.Ž And then theres the humor.Norm Gitzen is going to be modeling for us this year,Ž Ms. Deits said. Of course, all the ladies are excited that hes going to be modeling for them.Ž Mr. Gitzen, who cuts an impressive figure, will dress as a satyr, a bare-chested ancient mythological creature that is half-man and half-goat. Ill be a cross-dressing warrior satyr,Ž he said, laughing. Its something you dont see everyday.Ž Nor do you see that level of commit-ARTYBRASFrom page 1 >> What: ArtyBras exhibition >> When: Exhibition open through Oct. 22; Pink Cocktail Party, Fashion Show and ArtyBras Auction, 5:30 p.m. Oct. 22. >> Where: Lighthouse ArtCenter, Gallery Square North, 373 Tequesta Drive, Tequesta >> Cost: $5 admission to exhibition, $20 for Pink Cocktail Party and Fashion Show >> Info: 746-3101 or COURTESY PHOTOThe Lighthouse ArtCenter attracted about 70 bras for this year’s ArtyBras exhibition.

This is the ArtCenters fourth year of staging this type of event. The first version of ArtyBras was called BraVo. Our curator at that time started it in honor of Evelyne Bates,Ž Ms. Deits said. Mrs. Bates has worked at the ArtCenter for more than 40 years and is a breast cancer survivor. The first year, the money raised went to the American Cancer Society. But the ArtCenter decided to keep the money local after that first year, renam-ing the event ArtyBras because of copy-right issues and giving the proceeds to programs at Jupiter Medical Center, first to The Ella Milbank Foshay Cancer Cen-ter, then once it opened, the Niedland Breast Center. The event raised $3,500 last year. This year, organizers of the event have set a goal of $15,000, and they are opti-mistic they will surpass it. They have more bras than ever before, and they have received sponsorships as never before. Both Ms. Broidy and Ms. Deits credit event chairs Jeff and Veronica Lichten-stein with drumming up interest in the event. With us really putting some good effort in it, I knew we were going to exceed the number of bras from before,Ž Ms. Broidy said. This year, businesses could sponsor a bra for $100. But Illustrated Properties, Dreamstar Custom Homes, A1 Moving, Group One and Mike Riviecchio were among the businesses that stepped up with larger sponsorships. Even not-for-profits like the Maltz Jupiter Theatre got in on the act and have bras in the exhibition. I think its a great cause and since I love the theater, I wanted to make one of the theme of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre and our season,Ž said Teresa Campani, for-mer property master at the theater and currently a volunteer who helps create sets. She was busy making umbrellas for the Maltzs upcom-ing production of Through the Looking Glass.Ž One of her bras has a golden curtain, like the one on the Maltz stage, with logos for the season shows mounted on it in decoupage. The other bra, dedicated to Ms. Campanis sister, a breast cancer survivor, has a little bear on it „ she calls it The Barely There Bear.Ž Her bras serve as a reminder that the event also supports the arts. Mr. Gitzen agreed.I think the arts are important, and when it comes to funding they are often last on the list. Society would be pretty darn boring without the arts, when you think about it, life would be so drab and mundane,Ž he said. We have nature, thank God, and nature is my No. 1 muse. The arts all just embellish our lives. It makes our jobs more fun when we have the arts to look forward to, to entertain us and occupy our lives in a positive way.Ž And with the research and treatments this event supports, maybe, just maybe, the arts can help us live those lives a little longer and a little better.

Do the right thingIn all the sound and fury coming out of Congress, you might have missed a bit of positive news. In September, Florida Reps. Alcee L. Hastings, a Dem-ocrat, and Tom Rooney, a Republican, co-sponsored bipartisan legislation that Congress designate May 16, 2014, as National Nonprofit Day.Ž The joint resolution is in recognition of the national importance of nonprof-it organizations. The modest proposal suggests few negatives. The nations communities value the services pro-vided by charities. Even so, the toxicity infecting civil discourse suggests the political out-come is far from predictable. None-theless, a little burnishing of a sour reputation is easier to accomplish when occasions arise that make it convenient to do the right thing. A recent case in point is a unanimous vote by Congress granting our nations highest civilian honor to the first African-American fighters to break the color barrier in the U.S. Marines. The Marines, you may know, were the last military branch to open its ranks to African-Americans. Sadly, though the honor comes 70 years after the fact for these veterans, it goes to show Congres-sional hindsight brings with it redemp-tive powers that lift even the most hole-riddled boats. So why single out nonprofits for national recognition? Representative Hastings press release includes a compelling inventory of the reasons fellow legislators should sup-port the idea. To wit: Nonprofit organi-zations advocate for solutions to some of the great challenges facing our nation and the world. Nonprofits con-tribute to advance-ments in science, research, and health care. They work to improve education, support civil and human rights, and to pro-tect environmen-tal resources and wildlife. The men and women who advocate tirelessly for the causes they believe in deserve to be recognized for their valuable contributions to societyŽ „a star-spangled endorsement if ever there was one. Representative Rooney adds his own take: Our nations nonprofits provide critical services in communities across the country, while employing millions of Americans. Establishing a National Non-profit Day will help recognize the great work that our nonprofits are already doing and encourage more Americans to give back to their communities.Ž Rep. Rooney is no stranger to nonprofits. He is the former CEO for the Childrens Place at Home Safe, a nonprofit with multiple sites in PBC serving neglected and abused children. There are approximately 2.3 million nonprofits in the U.S. With this many boots on the ground, all communities are touched in some way by the diver-sity of programs charities typically pro-vide. The breadth of the sector repre-sents more than an army of the altruistic „ much more. Consider this: Nonprofits employ the third largest workforce in the U.S., (and fourth largest in Florida) just behind man-ufacturing and retail. The sectors growth rate out-strips that of business and gov-ernment, adding almost $780 billion to the national GDP. A recent report published by Johns Hop-kins Universitys Civil Societies Studies observes nonprofits are not only a sig-nificant employer; they are also a very resilient employer. During the Great Recession, the nonprofit sector contin-ued to create new jobs while the private sector as a whole was losing them. With all that said, it is probably about time Congress took notice, but „ let us be clear „ in a good way. Strangely, Florida Gov. Rick Scott is a role model for the governance behav-ior that should boost the confidence of Congress to approve without dissent National Nonprofit Day as it is pro-posed. Gov. Scott declared Nonprofits Day in the State of Florida in September. The designation of a special day honoring nonprofits was a home-grown initiative, made at the behest of Palm Beach Countys Chamber of Nonprofits and Rep. Mark Pafford (D-West Palm Beach) on the occasion of the Nonprofit Chambers celebration held on the date of the first Nonprofits Day in Palm Beach County. At the event, County Commissioner Paulette Burdick presented to the Chamber of Nonprofits President, Julie Swindler, the countys proclamation officially declaring the day Nonprof-its Day in the county. Swindlers day job is as the President and CEO of Families First, a PBC nonprofit. More than 150 professionals from throughout PBCs nonprofit community applauded the receipt of the countys recognition. The Chamber of NonProfits expects to repeat its event annually and the occa-sion of an official Nonprofits Day is the icing on a well-designed cake. In the words of the statewide resolution, whereas nonprofits allow com-munities to leverage time, money and human capital to better support vulner-able communitiesŽ nonprofits deserve our appreciation and support. Gover-nors Scotts statement of admiration in praise of Florida nonprofits is unex-pected encouragement that it is never too late to do the right thing.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYIn blended families, sensitive issues run deep, so patience is requiredMarcia was sitting in the hospital room with her stepchildren, Ellen and Richard, waiting for her husband Stan to come out of surgery. Stans prognosis was labeled quite grim. Marcia and Stan had been married for 10 years. Both in their 70s, theyd often look at each other, amazed theyd found each other, later in life. Marcia couldnt bear to think of life without Stan. Marcia had hoped that Stans children would be a source of emotional support at this time, but was horrified by their actions. They had never been especially close, although Marcia had certainly tried. She had made a point of letting them know she understood it had been painful for the family to go through the extended illness and ultimate passing of Stans late wife. Marcia had met Stan a year later. Marcia knew it hurt Stan that his children were not more accepting of his new life, but he always made excuses for them, and often told Marcia she was making too big a deal of things. Now that Stan was too weak to speak up for himself, Richard was taking over like Marcia wasnt there. There was no consideration for the long months Marcia had spent taking care of Stans medical needs while his children were nowhere to be seen. What especially unnerved Marcia was receiving a phone call from their financial planner that Richard had been demanding information about Stans portfolio. Stan had always assured Marcia she would be secure if anything ever happened to him, but she had never seen the actual documents. Marcia was exhausted and knew she didnt have the strength to challenge her stepchildren.When it comes to blended families „ whether we are talking about the feel-ings of youngsters or seniors „ there are sensitivities that run very deep. Far too often, we hear the sad saga of stepparents woefully at odds with their spouses adult children. Its not uncommon for each party to question the others motivation, and to become convinced of the others self-serving, malevolent agendas. Serious conflicts most often arise at times of crisis, when nerves are frayed, and the parties dont have the available reserves to maintain reason and composure. In the fictionalized vignette ab ove, relationships were clearly polarized from the very beginning of Stans mar-riage to Marcia, so family members didnt have a baseline of goodwill to draw upon. No matter their age, children will have complicated feelings when a biological parent enters a romantic rela-tionship after the passing of a beloved parent. We can only assume that Rich-ard and Ellen were grieving the loss of their mother, and it was painful to see another woman assume this special place in their fathers heart. While we would hope adult children would eventually feel happy to see their parent find joy again after a period of mourning, for some, it can be incredibly difficult, if not impossible, for them to reach that place. Although Marcia had every intention to join her new family with sensitivity and optimism, it requires tremendous tact and diplomacy to interface with people who may not be receptive to these overtures. There may be sarcastic barbs, exchanged knowing looks among the others„humiliations that can make the most secure persons insides shake. Marcia apparently did not feel that Stan had taken sufficient steps to sup-port her position. Very likely, Stan was in the unenviable position of trying to balance the sensitivities of all parties, while forging the foundation of a new marriage. It would have been incumbent upon Stan to set the lead in navigating the often-treacherous waters of blended family adjustments. However, those in his position often feel caught in the mid-dle, and overwhelmed by the prospect of balancing conflicting expectations. It would have been critically important for him to have communicated support of his new spouse, while simultaneously expressing to his children how impor-tant they were to him. This would have been a daunting and perhaps impossible undertaking, but would have made a huge difference is setting his new mar-riage on secure footing. Sensitive parents will be patient, and not insist their children embrace the new union (although there must always be an expectation of respect and consid-eration.) And, of course, it goes without saying, discreet steps should be taken not to flaunt their happiness and life-style in their childrens faces. Understandably, Stans illness has placed tremendous emotional demands upon this family, compound-ing the pain of former losses. As fam-ily members process their own grief, its not uncommon for relationships to shift. Its a natural part of the human life cycle, for the childrenŽ to assume more responsibility and authority within the family constellation, especially as their parents age. Its understandable that Ellen and Richard would believe it was their place, and purpose, to assume more authority in their fathers affairs. We hate to think that greed and jealousies about assets will undermine rela-tionships, but sadly, this is often the case. As we know, these virulent feel-ings can bring out the WORST in the BEST of us. It can be enormously helpful for parents to spell out their wishes for their estates in the eventuality of their demise, both by family discussion and legal documents. Grieving families can be spared enormous heartache and expense if there are ironclad instruc-tions in place. While this never guar-antees against acrimony and legal bat-tles, parties may decide against further action when theyre not likely to prevail. One best survives in a blended family if they can maintain a sense of humor and thick skin. To be fair, there are many occasions where parties have done everything humanly possible to make the best of tough situations, but the emotional limits of one of more of the parties render some situations unworkable.

HEALTHY LIVING c h s e s linda Here are five ways to help protect your breast healthOctober is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a perfect time to take steps to help lower your risk of devel-oping breast cancer. While you cant change some risk factors „ genetics and getting older, for example „ there are things you can do that may lower your breast cancer risk, according to the American Cancer Society. Here are five ways to help protect your breast health. 1. Watch your weight. Being overweight or obese increases breast cancer risk. This is especially true after meno-pause and for women who gain weight as adults. The major source of estrogen for postmenopausal women is not the ovaries, but fat tissue. The increased risk may be due in part to this excess estrogen in fatty tissue. If youre already at a healthy weight, stay there. If youre carrying extra pounds, try to shed some. Theres evi-dence that losing weight may lower breast cancer risk. One easy goal to get started is to try losing 5 percent to 10 percent of your current weight over six months. For most women, that means dropping just half a pound per week. 2. Exercise regularly. Many studies have found that exercise is a breast-healthy habit. As little as 75 to 150 minutes of brisk walking each week has been shown to lower risk. Ramping up your exercise routine even more may lower your breast cancer risk even more. The American Cancer Society recommends getting at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity activity or 75 min-utes of vigorous activity each week. (Or a combination of both.) And dont cram it all into a single workout „ spread it out over the week. 3. Limit alcohol. Women who have two or more alcoholic drinks a day have about 1 times the risk of breast cancer compared to women who dont drink at all. Follow the American Cancer Soci-etys recommendation of no more than 1 drink per day for women and 2 drinks per day for men. A single drink amounts to 12 ounces of beer, five ounces of wine or 1 ounces of 80-proof distilled spirits (hard liquor). 4. Avoid or limit hormone replacement therapy. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) had long been used for night sweats, hot flashes, and other troublesome symptoms of menopause. But in 2002, researchers found that post-menopausal women who took a combi-nation of estrogen and progestin were more likely to develop breast cancer. Breast cancer risk appears to return to normal within five years after stopping the combination of hormones. Talk with your doctor about all the options to control your menopause symp-toms, and the risks and benefits of each. If you do decide to try HRT, it is best to use it at the lowest dose that works for you and for as short a time as possible. 5. Get recommended mammograms to find breast cancer early when its easier to treat. The American Cancer Society recommends women age 40 and over get one every year, along with a breast exam by a doctor or nurse. Let your doctor know about any breast changes you find yourself. Q Getting regular exercise is one way to help protect your breast health.


The Palm Beach Children’s Hospital at St. Mary’s Medical Center offers Halloween safety tipsWhat are you going to be this Halloween? The latest super hero, a scary ghost or a fairy-tale princess? Halloween can be great fun. You get to dress up and get free candy. If you plan to go trick-or-treating, here are some tips to help keep you safe:Choosing your costumeQ Make sure you can see. Masks and hoods can make it hard to see. Non-toxic face paints are a much better choice. Q Wear something that reflects light. You can add reflective tape to your costume and treat bag so that driv-ers can see you. Carry a flashlight to light your way. You can even find one to match your costume!Fun with friendsQ Younger children should always have a responsible adult or older teenager with them while they trick or treat. Q Take some friends along. A group of three or more is much safer than one.Plan aheadQ Plan your route and decide with your parents what time you should be home. Q Only visit the houses of people you know and where an outside light is on. If the light is off, they are prob-ably away from home or not giving out candy. Q Dont go inside a house to accept candy.Safety firstQ Dont stand too close to a lighted candle … especially in a jack olantern. Your costume might catch fire.Q Whether walking, using your super powers or flying a broom, watch out for traffic. Stay on the sidewalks. Cross only at intersections. Dont cross or hide between parked cars. Look both ways before crossing the street.Q Dont cut across alleys or yards. Q Have one of your parents or a responsible adult check your candy before eating it. Throw any open packages or homemade treats away. If you have younger brothers, sisters, cousins or friends, dont give them small or hard candies that can choke them.Other tipsQ Children often want to help carve the pumpkin, but little fingers and sharp objects dont mix. Let your children draw the face on the pump-kin while you handle the carving. Your children may enjoy cleaning out the pumpkin and saving the seeds to bake for a snack. Q Make sure your children understand the rules of Halloween safety. Devel-op a game plan and agree on the rules ahead of time. If older children are going out without an adult, make sure they understand the difference between vandalism and tricks. Q When shopping for costumes, check to make certain the material is flame retardant and that your childs vision wont be obscured by any part of the costume. Make sure the costume isnt too long to prevent tripping. If your child is wearing a hat, check to see that it wont slip down over the eyes. Q If your child is carrying props like a sword, knife or scythe, check to see that the tips are smooth and flexible enough to not cause injury. Q You may want to find an alternative to door-to-door trick or treating such as going to a mall or communi-ty event. You also may want to host a special Halloween party for your children and their friends. Q Its not safe today to let children go trick or treating alone. Have a responsible adult or older teen go with smaller children. Older chil-dren and teens should go in groups. Q Make your home safe for those little treaters. There are special lights that mimic a candle for jack olanterns. If you do use a candle, keep the pumpkin on a sturdy surface away from where the children are likely to stand. Dont leave a burning candle unattended. Q Teach your children that Halloween is about fun. Throwing eggs at a house or car or even toilet-papering trees can be considered acts of van-dalism.

Q FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 A17 ADVERTISEMENT Ask The Health & Beauty Experts ASK THE COSMETIC SURGEON Question: What can be done to improve a bad scar on my face? Answer: Scars on the face and neck are poorly tolerated by patients since they are easily visible. Causes of scars that heal poorly are vehicle accidents, assaults, dog bites, skin cancer removal or even surgical scars. Scars require 12-18 months to fully heal but some characteristics of a poor scar can be identified sooner. In a consultation, we can discuss features of the scar that you are concerned with. Scar direction, color, depth and location will determine if the scar is noticeable. A hypertrophic scar or keloid involves overgrowth of scar tissue. Medical and surgical management is reviewed. If scar revision is recommended, surgery itself takes about 1-2 hours and is performed in our accredited operating suite usually using local anesthesia. The old scar or keloid is removed creating fresh surgical edges that can be carefully re-approximated to create the best conditions for optimal wound healing. Advanced techniques such as z-plasty are used to modify the orientation and length of the scar. Most patients are able to return to normal activity between 4 -7 days when most swelling has subsided. After surgery, the scar is checked regularly and patients are educated in wound care. Moisture and avoiding sun exposure are crucial in healing. Sometimes steroid injections are used to reduce recurrence of a hypertrophic scar or keloid. To see if a scar revision or keloid excision is right for you, please call my office to schedule a free consultation.

I’ve been embarrassed with them slipping off while eating and talking. Should I consider implants? Answer: Yes, you should absolutely consider implants. The reason your dentures no longer fit is because you are loosing jaw bone. Dental implants maintain and stimu-late the jaw bone in which they are placed. This means instead of loosing valuable facial bone due to tooth loss, implants can preserve and maintain that bone. Using implants to hold dentures in place is an excellent way to stabilize your teeth. You will be able to chew similar to if you had your natural teeth, enjoying the foods you once avoided without fear of any embar-rassing moments. One other benefit implants provide when incorporated in the fabrication of dentures is that they allow your teeth to be placed more favorably for facial esthetics. As you loose bone, it is first lost from the outside in. That is why your face appears to collapse. Implants allow your new teeth to be placed more to the outside of the ridge and resist the influences of your facial muscle, giving you a fuller more youthful look.

Any SEC rule that remained in place for 80 years must have had some mighty good reasons to have remained intact „ that is until commissioners agreed there were even better reasons for the rule to be lifted. The SECs commissioners recently voted 4-1 to lift the ban on general solici-tationŽ by hedge funds and other private funds. Now, these funds can enter the world of advertising, sponsoring events, cold-calling, linking on social websites and freely speaking to the public. Hedge funds will be able to enter the advertising world of mutual funds and financial advisers. Prior to the emancipation in July, hedge and private fund managers used round-about ways to disseminate information on their funds, such as word of mouth, client referral, professional networking, speaking engagements to institutional investors, etc. The thinking behind the creation of the rule decades ago was that investors should be protected from hedge funds and other private funds, as there is often a much greater lack of liquidity and a much higher degree of risk characterizing such portfolios. As to the liquidity argument, yes, private funds in general are appreciably less liquid than directly owned, publicly trad-ed, equity and bond securities. Some of the underlying investments are quite illiquid in that they involve private stock and real estate. Yet, some of these illiquid fundsŽ are actually invested in highly liquid assets but these managers often, in self interest, include provisions that make it more diffi-cult for investors to have an easy cash out, i.e., they add lock upŽ provisions. Manag-ers can rightfully argue that investors are emotional and ill time their entry and exit and these lock upsŽ help their investors in the long run. The investment-risk argument holds even less merit. A look back at 2008 shows that the S&P Index grossly under-performed hedge funds during one of the greatest risk-on events of the last 50 years: the S&P lost 38 percent while hedge funds lost 21 percent. The new thinking that lifted the ban has come under the leadership of the new Securities and Exchange chairman, Mary Jo White, who adopted the move to be in compliance with the new JOBS Act. The Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act became part of the recovery program for the Great Recession; the new solicitation rules (oddly) came under the JOBS Act provisions. The SEC did not change the rules surrounding the types of investors allowed to participate in hedge and private funds; it remains that only accredited investors are given admittance. Accredited investors are defined as those having $200,000 or great-er annual income over the past two years or net assets (excluding your home) of $1 million. (For couples, accredited status is met by $300,000 of combined income.) However, while the accredited investor definition is unchanged, the rules regard-ing verification of such investors income or assets have changed: hedge and private funds that accept the right to solicit the general public are required to verify the investors attestations of such. Funds not soliciting to the general public (i.e. still operating under the old SEC rules forbid-ding general solicitation) can continue to accept investors without detailed income and asset verification. They can continue to accept signed statements by investors that they are accredited without further verification. The relaxation of the solicitation rule is most probably a positive for those inves-tors who previously wanted to participate but were excluded because they were not approached or did not know how to get the information needed to participate „ they were not in a good, old boys network. On alert should be: dentists, lawyers, doctors, business owners and other high-profile, upper-income earners. They will likely get letters, phone calls and requests to link through social media, etc. Instead of just brokerage firms advertising free din-ners to hear an investment expert, there will most likely be dinners promoting hedge and private funds. Although the relaxation of the rule was intended to do good for capital formation and for the start-up fund manager, the reality is that most start-up fund managers dont have the economic wherewithal to engage in major advertising and promo-tion. Beyond the money needed, they are restrained by lack of personnel to affect such campaigns; they are often too busy trying to manage the money. The manager with hundreds of millions under hedge/private equity management can easily roll general solicitation cam-paigns out the door. Probably the biggest reason why the rule had to be changed was the current investment environment is radically differ-ent from 80 years ago. Now, dollars raised in the public equity market are dwarfed by dollars raised in the private fund markets. Surely, the naysayers can point to the fact that many accredited investors are ill prepared to make these investments and that $1 million in assets is not a huge amount of capital to be an accredited investor. And others point to the fact that the greatest number of securities viola-tions were by those in private funds, not in public securities. (But this is somewhat to be expected, given the skew away from public underwritings toward dollars being raised by private funds.) For wealth investors, a well-balanced portfolio that has potential to handle all forms of economic weather will include much more than just equities and bonds. Consult your adviser as to suitability of hedge fund or private equity inclusion in your portfolio. Q „ Jeannette Showalter, CFA is a commodities broker with Worldwide Futures Systems.

She has served as a juvenile misdemeanor mediator in the Palm Beach County State Attorneys Office; held volunteer leadership roles in her childrens schools; donated time to Habitat for Humanity (both as a men-tor and construction site worker); and chaperoned children on mission trips. Lazzara is an active volunteer in the community through her 11 years as a member of the Junior League of the Palm Beaches. In addition to volunteering for Meals on Wheels, she volunteers with the Cys-tic Fibrosis Foundation. A University of Florida graduate who worked in the automotive software industry, Lazzara also stays busy keeping up with her two young sons. Hot Wheels ... Hot Meals was a great event last year and this year will be even bigger and better,Ž Lazzara said. Its a casual, fun event that promotes a great cause: helping homebound seniors in our Palm Beach County community.Ž Meals on Wheels of the Palm Beaches is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the homebound in West Palm Beach and Palm Beach by providing nutritious mid-day meals to those who are unable to prepare their own. A community-based organization, Meals on Wheels of the Palm Beaches relies on local residents for financial support and volunteers, and operates without government funding.

The cottage is named after major donors Lorraine and Bill Dodero, who were on hand for the groundbreaking. These are the most vulnerable children and to be able to provide a safe haven with round-the-clock, profession-al house parents who care and guide them in the right direction is such an honor,Ž Lorraine Dodero said. The home, which will be approximately 5,000 square feet with six bed-rooms, is expected to be complete by the Spring of 2014. It is being con-structed by Onshore Construction & Development, Inc. This will be the second home to foster kids on the KidSanctuary Campus. Onshore was responsible for the construction of the campus first home, as well. The cam-pus will eventually be a four-residence development with administration on-site. Said Onshore Construction owner Dan Reedy: It is very rewarding to build beautiful oceanfront and river-front projects for the wealthy, but being involved in the construction with KidSanctuary is even more special. Know-ing that the organization is providing housing in a wonderful, caring facility for children that have not had the good fortune to have a consistent place to call home is the ultimate reward for all of us at Onshore Construction.Ž The Dodero Cottage will be decorated by a team of more than a dozen top decorators, who each will con-tribute their time and talents to make the home an elegant sanctuary for the children. Each child who comes to KidSanctuary Campus has been in abandoned, abused and/or neglected situations. Many of them have been in several foster homes before coming to the campus. KidSanctuary Campus is a notfor-profit organization committed to providing a safe home for abused, abandoned and neglected children in Florida. The mission for KidSanctuary Campus is to ensure that each child receives the benefits of a sense of belonging and permanency in a caring and positive environment that nur-tures self-esteem and hope. For additional information about KidSanctuary Campus, contact Toni May at 653-8274 or Q Climate change lecture set at Palm Beach State SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY University of Notre Dame political scientist Debra Javeline, Ph.D., will give a free lecture about The Politics of Adapting to Climate ChangeŽ on Wednesday, Oct. 23, at Palm Beach State Colleges Palm Beach Gardens campus, 3160 PGA Blvd.. The lecture, which will be given in Room SC-127 at the BioScience Technol-ogy Complex, will be made twice: 12:30 to 1:45 p.m. and 2 to 3:15 p.m. According to Javeline, the world is being transformed by climate change. Even if every country could somehow stop green-house gas emissions immediately, the emissions already in the atmosphere will cause considerable impact. In her lecture, Javeline will review the field of climate change adaptation and explore how this global crisis can be met through the contributions and collaboration of profession-als from a variety of backgrounds. Javeline received her doctorate from Harvard University and is currently an associate professor of political science at the University of Notre Dame. An expert in survey research methodology and a specialist in the former Soviet Union, she has become increasingly concerned about the climate crisis. She now devotes a sig-nificant part of her research and teaching to underst anding climate impacts and the possibilities for mitigation and adapta-tion. Javelines visit to Palm Beach State College is being funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Questions about the event may be directed to Jay Matteson, Ph.D., director of the colleges Institute for Energy and Environmental Sustainability, at 207-5302 or Q COURTESY PHOTO Those breaking ground were Alex de Chabert, Dan Reedy, Connie Frankino, Lorraine Dodero, Bill Dodero, Dutney Simon and Mike Meyer.

Q „ Scott Simmons KOVEL: ANTIQUESFabric toys hold value and beauty unassembled Our Victorian ancestors made many of the toys their children played with. Inex-pensive printed fabrics were designed to be cut out and sewn into dolls, games or toys. The fabric usually pictured all the parts of a colorful toy. There also were printed instruc-tions explaining how to assemble the pieces and, if necessary, how to stuff it. We have seen stuffed Christmas stockings made from prints that featured Santa, evergreens and other Christmas decorations. There were many versions of Pin the Tail on the Don-key.Ž A similar game made in about 1900, called The Monkey Donation Party Game,Ž was made from a white fabric with a black printed monkey holding a stitched-on circu-lar piece with the words Please put a penny in the cap.Ž During the first quarter of the 20th century, many manufactured fabrics could be made into advertising dolls. Printed fabric was inexpensive to make and to mail. An unusual printed toy of that period is a ball made of six colored oval pieces. Each piece pictures a baby holding a finished ball. It was made in 1900 by Art Fabric Mills, and the fabric included printed instructions and the words and music of a lullaby. A collec-tor recently paid $165 for a homemade ball in unfaded condition, but the uncut pattern sells for more „ about $200 to $300. A flat piece of fabric can be framed and displayed on a wall. The assembled ball is less decora-tive. Q: I recently acquired a vintage dining room table, one table leaf and five matching chairs. The wood is walnut, and the table is very ornate. We found a paper label on two of the chairs. It reads Midwest Furniture & Chair Co.Ž I cant find any information about the company. And what could the set be worth? A: Midwest Furniture & Chair Co. was in business in St. Joseph, Mo., in the 1920s. Your set would be worth more if you had a sixth chair. Sets by the same maker have sold recently for $450 and $675, but both had at least six chairs plus a sideboard or buffet. So your table and five chairs might sell for $200 or less. Q: I have a letter opener that reads PanAmerican Exposition, 1901Ž on the blade and a picture of the fairs Electric Tower on the handle. The back has fruit and flower designs. Its silver-colored, but Im not sure if its sterling silver. Does it have any value? A: The Pan-American Exposition was held in Buffalo, N.Y., from May to Novem-ber 1901. Many souvenir items were made picturing the buildings and other features of the fair. The Electric Tower pictured on your letter opener was the tallest structure at the fair and was often pictured. Most souvenir items are silver plate, not sterling silver. Your letter opener is probably worth about $25. Heres a little history: President William McKinley was shot by anarchist Leon Czol-gosz while the president was shaking hands with visitors in the Temple of Music on the fairgrounds on Sept. 6, 1901. He died eight days later. For more information about the 1901 Worlds Fair, go to Q: A few years ago, I was at a garage sale and spotted a bronze-colored bust of a clas-sical woman. I instantly fell in love with her. Shes imprinted on the back with the artists signature, Henri Jacobs,Ž and copyright 1904 by Napoleon Alliot.Ž I would like to know more about the maker of this bust. A: Henri Jacobs (1864-1935) has been called the Father of Belgian Art Nouveau.Ž He was an artist and architect and was also known for his Art Nouveau busts of women. Napoleon Alliot was a sculptor who also had a foundry. Your bust could sell at auc-tion for more than $1,000 even though it is not bronze. Q: I have come across a Grimm Cover,Ž which apparently is some sort of commode or potty or thunder-mugŽ cover. Its made of galvanized steel and is embossed Grimm Cover, Patented July 19, 1804.Ž Have you ever seen another one? A: You actually have a sap bucket cover, not a commode cover. A patent for a new and improved sap-spout and coverŽ was granted to G.H. Grimm in 1904 (not 1804). His newly designed spout and cover made it possible to pour sap without removing the bucket from the hook that attached it to the tree. The covers were made in two sizes, 12 and 14 inches. Its not clear how many years they were made, but they were still in Grimms catalog in 1912. We have seen several Grimms Cov-ers advertised online. They sell for under $10 each.Tip: If youre polishing a wooden-handled copper or silver teapot, be sure to cover the wood so its not stained by the metal polish.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 REAL ESTATE A27Marc Schafler joins Lang Realty’s Palm Beach Gardens office SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Lang Realty announced Marc Schafler has joined Lang Realtys Palm Beach Gardens office. Mr. Schafler specializes in gated communities, country clubs, Intracoastal and oceanfront properties for Palm Beach Gardens, Jupiter, Jupi-ter Island, Tequesta, Juno Beach, North Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, Singer Island, Palm Beach and Manalapan. We feel like a winning sports team that just landed a key free agent, because Marc is a true all-star with an impeccable reputation in the Northern Palm Beach-es. Its a true testament to our success that the top agents are looking to join our organization,Ž said Scott Agran, pr esident of Lang Realty, in a prepared statement. Mr. Schafler began his career in real estate in New Jersey, quickly becoming one of the top Realtors for Weichert Realtors where he achieved their Ambassador's Club, which is for the top 1 percent of Realtors. He also won the Circle of Excellence award from the New Jersey Board of Realtors for number of closed transactions. Having moved to Palm Beach County in 2006, Mr. Schafler became one of the top 25 Realtors in the state of Florida for a major national firm and achieved "Hall of Fame" sta tus, closing more than $1,000,000 in gross commissions in record time. Similar to what I did in New Jersey, I have joined one of the leading and most established brokers in Palm Beach County. Its the best formula for success and allows me to better serve my clients with the best advertising and marketing in the area with the most trusted realty firm,Ž Mr. Schafler said in the statement. We are all excited to work with Marc as he is one of the brightest and most experienced agents in South Florida. He truly makes the real estate buying or sell-ing experience stress free and pleasant for the customer,Ž said Doreen Nystrom, Lang Realtys sales manager overseeing the Palm Beach Gardens and Jupiter locations, in the statement. Lang Realty was established in 1989 and has grown from three sales associ-ates to become one of the top real estate companies in South Florida. The compa-ny has expanded to more than 360 agents with offices in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Manalapan, Jupiter, Port St. Lucie and Boynton Beach at Hunters Run. Lang Realtys Palm Beach Gardens office is at 6271 PGA Blvd. Visit Q Homebuyers value environmentally friendly features, survey says SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Homeowners frequently see their heating bills rise as fall begins and the weather cools. For this reason, homes with energy efficient and environmen-tally friendly featur es are oft en a priority to prospective buyers. According to the National Association of Realtors 2012 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, nearly nine of 10 recent home buyers said that heating and cooling costs were somewhat or very important when considering a home for purchase. Realtors build communities and know that consumer demand for greener homes and features has grown consider-ably over the past several years. Going green has proven to be more than a trend; many people now seek out this way of living and want homes and communi-ties that are more resource efficient and sensitive to the environment,Ž said NAR President Gary Thomas, broker-owner of Evergreen Realty in Villa Park, Calif. As energy savings and green building features are becoming more important to buyers, sellers and businesses, it comes as no surprise that consumers are plac-ing a higher value on properties with those features.Ž Its easy to understand why homebuyers tend to favor greener houses; often the higher a homes energy efficiency, the more money is potentially saved in monthly heating and cooling costs. NAR data show that features which directly affect monthly energy costs are impor-tant to buyers; 39 percent of survey respondents reported that a homes heat-ing and cooling costs were very important when considering a home for pur-chase, followed by energy-efficient appli-ances and lighting, each at 24 percent. Landscaping for energy conservation and environmentally friendly communi-ty features were less important but were still a factor in the minds of homebuyers; nearly half of buyers found these features very or somewhat important. Regionally, buyers in the North and South placed a greater importance on heating and cooling costs, probably due to more extreme temperatures in those areas of the country. The survey also found that buyers who purchased more recently built homes placed greater importance on environmentally friendly features than buyers who purchased older homes; nearly 60 percent of buy-ers who bought homes built in 2011 said heating and cooling costs were very important, compared to less than 30 percent of buyers whose homes were built before 1910. To help its Realtor members meet the growing consumer demand for green building practices and energy-efficient homes, NAR created the Green Resource Council in 2008. The council administers NARs Green Designation, which provides advanced training in green building and sustainable business practices so that Realtors can seek out, understand, and market properties with green features; nearly 9,000 Realtors have earned the Green Designation.

SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSIs there an app for that?On a recent weekday evening, I waited to meet a friend at a small cof-fee shop downtown. It was the kind of place that serves gluten-free cook-ies and has a steady stream of young people with laptops passing through. There was a handsome young man at the table across from me with ginger-colored hair and a matching beard. He looked smart, well groomed and a touch bookish „ exactly the kind of guy I go for. When he stood up to buy another cup of coffee from the counter, he smiled as he passed my table and my heart trilled. My friend wasn t due for another hour, so I worked on my iPad and sipped hot tea. As I was typing, I noticed a new message pop up on my Skype account. I almost never use Skype when Im in the U.S.; its most-ly a holdover from my trips abroad. I wondered who could be contact-ing me. John Michael,Ž according to Skype. I flipped through my men-tal Rolodex. Did I know any John Michaels? We exchanged innocuous greetings and I waited for him to give me some clue as to how we might have met. In France? In Africa? Where do you live, dear?Ž John Michael asked, and I realized: We dont know each other at all. That doesnt mean we cant be friends on here,Ž he wrote back. I rolled my eyes. Briefly, when the Internet was first catching on and everyone used AOL, I dipped my teen-age toes in the chat room scene. That was during the days when the Web had a Wild West feel. Everything seemed new and vaguely dangerous in an exciting way. But it didnt take long for me to abandon the chat rooms. It felt too unreal, too much like wish fulfillment. One time „ and one time only „ I gave a guy I had been chatting with my phone number. It took a single call from him for me to real-ize that the person I had imagined was nothing like the teenager stam-mering on the other end of the line. This idea of whats genuine and whats invented on the Internet came up recently during a dinner with friends. Everyone at the table except me was under 30. They were Millennials, the up-and-coming generation, people whove never lived without an e-mail address, who cant make it through a meal without texting or tweeting. My friends were adamant that I need an online dating profile. Not just that, but they described the other options out there, including Tinder, an app for connecting singles in the same vicinity (it wasnt until the end of the night that I realized they werent saying tenderŽ). Theres even an app for rating men „ Lulu „ where women can let other women know about a guys potential datability. I knew my friends meant well, but it all felt very impersonal to me. Anyway, who needs online gimmicks when there are good-looking boys in coffee shops giving you the eye? But as time ticked past and the ginger-haired man showed no signs of making a m ove, I started to reconsider. Maybe a little technological help wouldnt be so bad after all.

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 FLORIDA WEEKLYThe magic of this script, the actor s performances and the skill of director J. Barry Lewis communicate a yearning so intense that you can almost see the characters hearts struggling to burst from their chests. And because the vagaries of life have treated these ordi-nary people so harshly, they do it while knowing better. Their hope makes them all the more noble and tragic. When chance makes it possible for one dream to seem achievable for the first time, the farmworker George begins spinning out his vision aloud. He starts to stand but his knees buckle under the weight of possibility and when he does walk, he stumbles about in disbelief. Like Lewis work with last seasons closer, Dancing At Lughnasa,Ž this is a sad elegy that requires audiences to alter their metabolism when they arrive. Its a quiet, slow-moving but steady river that rewards the audiences investment of patience and attention. Some people with perfectly admirable taste will want something with a little more fire, a little more electricity. The tale, from Steinbecks 1937 novella, which Steinbeck adapted for the stage, tells of two men traveling from ranch to farm doing manual labor of any kind. George is a compact, slender man of better than average intelligence who is all too aware of uncaring fate. Lennie is an incredibly strong giant, slow-witted from birth and with a nature far too gentle for his own good. George has been protecting Lennie for most of their lives although they are not relatives and the relationship has cost George a normal life. They are yoked together in a mutually beneficial, yet altruistic bond that would be grossly glib to refer to as a bromance. But when you care about something in this world, it gives you something to lose and Steinbeck tele-graphs from the start that this will have an ending as affecting as Brians Song.Ž They are on the run from their last job in which Lennie, who has a childs obsession with stroking soft things, has been unjustly accused of raping a woman. When they find their next job, the farm is populated with burly hands like the genial muleskinner Slim; Candy, the elderly cripple kept on out of charity; Curley, a bantam bully of a foreman, and his restless wife. Each cradles their modest dreams out of sight for fear that they might be mocked or that the very utte rance aloud might expose it to the infectious dangers of the world. George and Len-nie nurture a detailed reverie of a small farm of their own. It really is a dream of self-determination, of having the freedom to reap what you sow literally and figuratively, of a way to reinforce your self-esteem. Curleys wife dreams of a truer love than that of her insecure husband and even the adoration that comes from being a movie star. But human interaction for these universally lonely people can lead to both heartening and fatal results. The final scene „ no spoilers here but most of you know what it is and if you didnt, Steinbeck has been setting you up for it for two hours as inevitable „ is deli-cately and sensitively staged by Lewis. The list of Lewis virtues just ought to be put on a computer macro to save time. His physical staging is seamless, consistent, silently evocative and abso-lutely invisible. His ability to elicit nat-uralistic and convincing performances is excelled only by his skill at helping the cast find the intent of every beat in the script. There is a consistent and discernible tone. Again, it is a low-key tone that makes the audience long for a little more vibrance on the stage. Most of the cast inhabit recognizable people on stage even though their char-acters have become so iconic over the decades that the actors have to fight (but prevail) to keep them from becom-ing symbols and clichs. The quaint phraseology of the dialogue and the crystal clear metaphors might sound affected and heavy-handed in other voices. But this cast smoothly delivers even those almost bold-faced omens with sincerity and credibility. John Leonard Thompsons portrayal of George underscores his outstanding ability to draw a fully realized human being without standing out while doing it. Remember him in Candida,Ž or as the addled brother in LughnasaŽ or the volcanic Teach in American BuffaloŽ? His sharp-edged features echo Georges wariness of having been ground down by life, but he remains tough as raw-hide and still harbors enough humanity to stick with Lennie. Brendan Titley makes his Lennie as open-hearted as his round face, yet his simplicity seems organic, not an acting choice. He prevails over the challenge of making him lovable but not cloying. He doesnt quite put across the sense that Lennie is capable of running amok and inflicting serious injury without meaning to. But he has the child-like wonder down cold „ especially in his scene when he meets Candys dog by making playful faces with a new friend. The sole quibble is that there is not a lot of chemistry between the two. Their connection is evident simply because they have stuck together rather than any visible if tamped-down affection. Dennis Creaghan, the well-coiffed patrician of A Delicate Balance,Ž makes an affecting grizzled coot in Candy who has lost a hand and is reduced to mucking out. He embodies someone trying desperately not to be discarded in a world that shoots wounded animals no longer able to fulfill their duties. Watching the light return to his eyes as he joins in the prospect of George and Lennies dream is a joy. But most of the cast is that good: Cliff Burgess as the kindly Slim, Betsy Graver as the lonely wife, W. Paul Bodie as the crippled black stablehand, Wayne Steadman as the pragmatic col-league, Frank Converse (who appeared in Dramaworks The WeirŽ in 2009) as the boss, and Ricky Waugh who caress-es Steinbecks descriptive narration one moment and then credibly switches to a farmhands twang. Christopher Hal-laday is all blustering glower as Curly, but in perhaps the sole misstep, Lewis and Steinbeck just have him blow in looking for his wife and a fight, and then blow out. He doesnt have much time to establish a realistic character. Production values are a hallmark of Dramaworks offerings, but costume designer Leslye Menshouse has out-done herself with wardrobes that com-municate individual characters as well as the environment. The denim over-alls, corduroy pants, fedoras, Stetsons, vests and workshoes all solidly estab-lish a world in which sweat and grime have been ground into the molecular structure of the clothes. She adds little grace notes like a red bandanna hang-ing out of a back pocket or Curleys wifes silly gaudy shoes „ totally out of place heels that she probably saw in a movie star magazine, adorned with lace and a fake red flower. Michael Amicos set design and Sage Neighbors painting superbly convey the tone of the piece „ a textured world of labor seen through weathered timbers and corrugated sheet metal that highlight the wear of unforgiving elements. As always, Amico finds pre-cisely the right period props to deco-rate the rooms. Matt Coreys sound design encompasses his original music of a gently strummed acoustic guitar to subtly feathering in the sounds of nature emanating from different parts of the auditorium. John Halls lighting atmospheric lighting includes leaf-dap-pled chiaroscuro and golden sunsets pouring through the slats of the stable. A side note: Lewis enhanced the script with those descriptive narrations that cover scene changes, lyrical pas-sages drawn directly from the text of the novella. It eases the audience both into physical environment as well as sets the contemplative tone. Q Of Mice And MenŽ runs through Nov. 10 at Palm Beach Dramaworks, 201 Clematis St., West Palm Beach.

So many Tre es to cho os e from up to 12 W hat s not t o l ove!! was helping his neighbor sell a condo and they had a painting they wanted to donate to the Norton. I said, Yeah, right. I ts probably an early 20th-century copy on paper thats bad,Ž he said. He made an appointment to see the painting anyway. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was a good painting. The quality was abso-lutely amazing, but it was in very bad repair and shape,Ž he said. It was delicate. There was a tear in the canvas that had been covered from the back with duct tape. But the paint-ing was on its original stretchers and still had its original Italian wax seals. And most of the paint was intact „ fortunately for conservators, there had not been a lot of in-painting or other restorations. But it wasnt signed, it wasnt dated and, as far as the Nortons curators knew, it didnt have a title. Thank goodness for scholarship.Researchers learned that it was titled The Fishermen,Ž and that the paint-ing was one of a series of eight painted for Pierre Charles, Marquis de Villette, who was an important figure during the reign of King Louis XV. Four paint-ings from the series are known to exist; the other three are in Russia. It had a pedigree worthy of an exhibition all its own, A Masterpiece Redis-covered: Claude-Joseph Vernets The Fishermen,Ž open through Dec. 8. Vernet was one of the most famous landscape and marine painters of the 18th century, and this painting incorpo-rates the best of both of those milieus. Fishermen pull their nets in from the water as a dog eagerly watches from the shore. Its set against a dramatic backdrop of mountains, ancient ruins and a waterfall. An aqueduct arches its way across the back of the canvas as light pours in through a rock outcrop-ping, much as water cascades along the rapids of the fall. He did these beautiful landscapes but he was famous for doing ship-wrecks as well, so he was one of the early sort of Romantic artists that would pair one of these very idyllic campagna scenes with a shipwreck scene, which was very turbulent, a precursor to the Romantic Age,Ž Mr. Dobrick said. Vernets patron, the marquis, was a secretary to Louis XV and oversaw the battlements of France. He also commissioned Vernet to paint a series of monumental works depicting the French ports, but those works came later in the artists career. At the time of his death in 1763, the marquis had 27 Vernet paintings in his collection. It was fitting that Vernet would paint such scenes. His father had been a decorative painter, and he had grown up in the French city of Avignon, once a home to the popes during the great schism of the Roman Catholic Church, which took place from 1378 to 1418. The ties to the church, and to Rome, still were quite strong some 300 years later. Vernet went to Rome and learned he had a talent for painting topographical views of Rome, as well as imaginary Italian landscapes and marine scenes. And as for Vernet, he lived to be 75, a ripe, old age for his day, and exhibited at the annual Salon in Paris until his death in 1789. According to Mr. Dobrick, who said the museum was grateful to Eleonore and Ronald Bacher for donating the work and to Edward Kampf for initially contacting the Norton and facilitating the gift, the painting will go on per-manent exhibition once the current exhibition closes. Mr. Dobrick will dis-cuss the work at Art After Dark during a Curators Conversation at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 14. The exhibition offers a video with images that allow visitors to follow the paintings progress from authentication through conservation „ yes, you can see that bit of duct tape in the photos. The Vernet painting is accompanied by a few other works from the era that help place it in the broader context of the European landscape period, with paintings and engravings by French, Italian and Flemish artists such as Giovanni Paolo Panini, Giovanni Battis-ta Piranesi, Bartolomeo Cavaceppi, Jan Frans van Bloeman and Jean-Baptiste Lallemand. The Piranesi views, in particular, are striking with their dramatic perspectives, while the Panini painting may remind visitors of the work by Vernet. It also looks at the phenomenon of The Grand Tour,Ž that trek to the cul-tural highlights of Europe and beyond to which travelers still look forward 300 years later. Some things never change.

Science Center’s “Titanic” tickets discounted through October SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYIf you buy in advance in October for the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium s upcoming Titanic exhibit (opening Saturday, Nov. 16), you can get a $2 discount on general admission tickets.The exhibit, titled Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition,Ž is described by Lew Crampton, the CEO of the Science Cen-ter, as the largest blockbuster exhibit to ever come to the Science Center.Ž It will run through April 20, 2014. We anticipate a very successful run with Titanic in this market,Ž Crampton said. If you know you are already plan-ning to attend the exhibit, we encourage you to buy your tickets in advance.Ž During the past 18 years, more than 25 million people worldwide have seen this exhibition in major museums from Chi-cago to Los Angeles to Paris to London. RMS Titanic, Inc. is the only company permitted by law to recover objects from the wreck site of the Titanic. The company was granted Salvor-in-Posses-sion rights by a U.S. federal court in 1994 and has conducted eight research and recovery expeditions to the sunken ship, rescuing more than 5,500 artifacts. The exhibition has been designed with a focus on the Titanics compel-ling human stories, as best told through authentic artifacts and extensive room re-creations. Perfume created by a man traveling to New York to sell his sam-ples, china etched with the logo of the elite White Star Line, even personal effects like a cigar holder, toothpaste jar and a calling card „ these and many other authentic objects offer haunting, emotional connections to lives abruptly ended or forever altered.Visitors are quickly drawn back in time to 1912 as they enter the exhibit, with each receiving a replica boarding pass of an actual passenger. They then begin a chronological journey through the life of Titanic, moving through the ships construction, to life on board, to the ill-fated sinking, and amazing artifact rescue efforts. Visitors will marvel at the re-cre-ated firstand third-class cabins, and can touch an iceberg while learning of count-less stories of heroism and humanity. In the Memorial Gallery,Ž guests will take their boarding pass to the memorial wall and discover whether their passen-ger and traveling companions survived or perished.Many venues tack on significant special event fees when traveling exhibi-tions are on display,Ž Crampton said. However, because of the great support of the Quantum Foundation, we are able to make this exhibit possible for a wide population, as we continue to live our mission to open every mind to science.ŽAdvance tickets will be $13 for adults, $9.50 for children aged 3 to 12, and 11.50 for seniors 62 and older. Science Center members and children under 3 are free. Tickets can be purchased on the Science Centers website at Due to the anticipated excitement sur-rounding this exhibit, be advised that visitors may incur a small wait time. The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium is located at 4801 Dreher Trail North, West Palm Beach and is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Saturday and Sun-day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. All exhibits will be open during the special show-ing of Titanic. For more information, call 832-1988, and for a virtual tour of the exhibit, visit Q PUZZLE ANSWERS

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 B13 Flagler Museum opens show based on its namesake SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY The Flagler Museum's fall exhibition, Man of the Century: The Incomparable Legacy of Henry Morrison Flagler,Ž has opened at the museum, which is at Cocoanut Row and Whitehall Way in Palm Beach. The exhibition will run through Jan. 5. The exhibition illustrates the stunning impact that Flagler had upon American business and Florida. Man of the CenturyŽ examines his accomplishments in the areas of busi-ness, development and philanthropy through photographs, maps, documents and artifacts. The year 2013 marks the 100th anniversary of the end of Henry Flagler's amazing life, and thus is the ideal year to reflect on the legacy of Flagler, the person who literally invented modern Florida by laying the foundation for an economy that now ranks third among U.S. states. By the time of his death in 1913, Henry Flagler had accumulated almost unimaginable wealth from his business ventures. Flagler's estate was worth an estimated $100 million, equivalent to more than $12.5 billion today. Like other Gilded Age captains of industry and commerce, Flagler believed he had a responsibility to manage his wealth and good fortune in such a way that created opportunities for others. According to Flagler, "The hardest problem a man has is how to help people. The desire to help others comes when a man has more than enough for his own needs. I have come to the con-clusion that the best way to help others is to help them help themselves." Henry Flagler's contributions provided land for dozens of schools, churches, parks, courthouses, libraries, hospitals and cemeteries throughout Florida, especially in Palm Beach County. Even after his death, Flagler's wealth continued to help Florida communities. In fact, a century after Henry Flagler's death, there is more than $1 billion of his fortune invested in endowments or trusts that support more than 50 million dollars in educational, charitable and cultural programs nationwide each year. The Flagler Museum „ featuring guided tours, changing exhibits and spe-cial programs „ is open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday, and noon until 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $18 for adults, $10 for youth ages 13-17, $3 for children ages 6-12, and children under six are free. Man of the Century: The Incomparable Legacy of Henry Morrison FlaglerŽ was organized by the Henry Morri-son Flagler Museum, from its collec-tions.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 17-23, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15The Dish: Gazpacho The Place: Nick & Johnnie s, 207 Royal Poinciana Way, Palm Beach; 655-3319 or The Price: $8 The Details: It was one of those warm fall nights in which the humidity was low and the spirits were high. You could call it the perfect evening to be at the perpetually packed Nick & John-nies. The band was playing and the crowd was lively. But we were there to eat. The menu skews heavily toward seafood, and gazpacho seems to go well with everything. At Nick & Johnnies, the chilled soup tastes fresh, though it might have benefited from a touch more heat. We loved the diced tomato, onion, cucumber and red bell pep-per that accompanied it, and the crisp crostini were perfect for dunking. Also recommended: the quinoa cakes with shrimp ($24) and Brasserie Skirt Steak ($28). Well raise a glass to those anytime. Q „ Scott SimmonsCUISINE Every Tin Fish restaurant does things a little bit different,Ž says Andy Noonan, owner and operator of the West Palm Beach location. At this res-taurant, our goal is to make our custom-ers happy, enjoy the food, and feel right at home.Ž While Tin Fish is situated across from the shooting fountains and next to the water, it is easy to relax, but with Selvin Chipixs gourmet touch, he says that it is the perfect place to eat. Yes, we serve bar food, but there is more to it than that,Ž says Mr. Chipix, chef at Tin Fish. We are fast casual, but above all, our food is fresh and served at a fair price.Ž Mr. Chipix is originally from Guatemala and moved to the states 13 years ago. He says that when he was young he would help his mother prepare fam-ily meals, and soon after, it became his passion. At age 16, Mr. Chipix entered the industry as a dishwasher, and he was not only exposed to how the kitchen operates, but to the fast pace of the culi-nary world. He says that it was amazing to see such love and passion in one dish, and he wanted to be a part of it. I dont consider myself a chef just yet,Ž says Mr. Chipix. I think it is important to keep an open mind and continue to learn about food „ you can never know too much when it comes to cooking.Ž Mr. Chipix says that he learned about the freshness of seafood, and fierce fla-vors when he joined the Tin Fish team in San Diego five years ago. After he moved to Florida, he worked at the Tin Fish Port St. Lucie location and helped open the Clematis location. Like Andy said, every Tin Fish offers something unique to differentiate it from the other locations,Ž he says. At this location, its all about what the peo-ple want, whether thats local fish, grou-per, salmon or tilapia „ were familiar with it all.Ž If you ask Mr. Chipix his favorite pick off the menu, he says that the fish tacos are out of this world; however, he says that he is torn between the fresh oys-ters, fish and chips and the fish sandwich. With new menu options almost every week, Mr. Chipix says that you dont necessarily have to be a sophisticated fish eater to dine at Tin Fish. There are chicken dishes, salads and more to choose from. We really cater to all age groups,Ž says Mr. Noonan. We have kids night, trivia night, happy hour, live bands, and were even participating in the Moon-fest Rock-N-Roll Zombie Bar Crawl. We want to make this restaurant the place to be.Ž Name: Selvin Chipix Age: 28 Original Home: Guatemala Restaurant: Tin Fish Clematis, 118 S. Clematis St., downtown West Palm Beach; 223-2497 or Mission: Our mission is to provide good service, great food and make the customers happy,Ž says Mr. Noonan. From a chef standpoint, our goal is to cook with love and hear people say that they love this place,Ž says Mr. Chipix. Cuisine: Seafood Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? I wear Ecco shoes. Theyre really comfortable, and thats important because chefs can be in the kitchen and on their feet for 10 to 12 hours a day.Ž What is your guilty culinary pleasure? Besides fish, I really like Mexican food. I sometimes like to mix the two flavors together. For example, we added amazing jalapeo poppers to the menu; they are really good!Ž What advice would you give someone who wants to be a chef? You need to put your passion into what you are serving, and you should never serve something that you wouldnt want to be served. You need to love what you create and at the same time please your customers. You want to make the people happy and give them a reason to come back.Ž Q In the kitchen with...Selvin Chipix, Tin Fish Clematis BY LOREN GUTENTAGlgutentag@floridaweekly.comThe dish Highlights from local menus SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY COURTESY PHOTO Selvin Chipix breads fish at Tin Fish Clematis in downtown West Palm Beach.
