COMMENTARYNonprofits all a-TwitterIf social media did not catch your attention before, the rollout of the Twit-ter IPO stock offering surely did. After the sale, the company is valued at about $29 billion dollars, even though it has yet to make a profit. However, with 232 million active users reported, there is cause for hope it will. ABC News predicts that a new wave of social media IPOs will follow Twitter, inspiring more frenzies. Users of social media continue to explode in number because the services migrate so easily for use on smart phones and tablets. Chari-ties see the power of the new tools and their use of social media outpaces the private sector. Nonprofits have had to struggle initially to get their boards on board, cre-ate the internal infrastructure necessary to manage and staff the functions, and acquire and master the competencies to make it all worthwhile. It is not one-size-fits-all and there are multiple options, including message boards, blogs, social networking, pod casts and video. Social media explodes the ways and means charities can reach out and communicate to diverse audi-ences; and provides anytime-access to information and news about the organization. The three applications used commonly by charities include Facebook, Twit-ter, and YouTube. Facebook is a user-friendly way to increase the visibility of organizations on the web and invite a more informal means of staying in touch and communicating with their Âfriends.ÂŽ Twitter allows the interaction of people, events and interests, and pushes out content in micro-messages to attract and grow a community of Âfollowers.ÂŽ You-Tube allows the uploading and screening of original videos that an audience of billions accesses freely, and according to Nielsen, reaches more U.S. adults from ages 18-34 than any cable network. Development staffs see enormous fundraising potential in the use of social media. An organization can build its brand and visibility before a vast new audi-ence of prospective donors. Nonprofits commit to social media platforms, not so much to better serve current donors but rather more to anticipate a new genera-tion of giving. Millennials Â„ the young people born during the period from approximately 1980 through 2000 Â„ expect to get their information and do their business online. Social media is the communications plat-form of choice for appealing to this next generation of prospects. Nonprofits can bridge the generational, donor divide and straddle the threshold separating the new world of web-based communications from more traditional marketing methods, but the stretch to accommodate both approaches is not easy. Resources are finite. An added challenge is that social media requires nonprofits to exercise and strengthen organizational Âmuscle groupsÂŽ they either do not have or have little experience re-applying for these purposes. The barriers are multiple: There is not enough staff skills, time and know-how. There is not enough technical knowl-edge. There is too little familiarity with the mediums. The almost instantaneous obsolescence of social media commu-nications absorbs enormous energy. People are skeptical and question the value and return on the time and trouble invested. Risk is higher in interacting with an opinionated public, and the real killer is the realization what is new soon grows quickly old again and the race to keep up is never over. It is a long, slow slog for nonprofits making the transformation. There is a heavy dependency on traditional meth-ods of communications Â„ snail mail, print reports, brochures, newsletters, ads and public service announcements, broadcasts on radio and television. Board members now tend to be a print-loving generation reluctant to give up their preference for hard copy. It is a challenge for nonprofit managers to sort all this out and still have time to get their work done, but the incentives are high to succeed. The value and worth of social media is, like the Twitter IPO, based on the magnitude of its potential to yield future returns. It is not a level playing field among charities to all get online and get going. Large nonprofits have the budgets to support the expertise and firepower nec-essary to design and launch successful, online marketing and communications campaigns. Smallto mid-size organiza-tions rarely have the same flexibility. They face higher stakes in making the trade-offs necessitated by a limited budget and smaller staff; and choosing between short and longer-term goals and priorities for investment. The effective use of social media is a higher mountain to climb in these cir-cumstances, but offers, in the long term, a more cost-efficient, effective way to reach out to a new generation of pro-spective donors Â„ the new philanthro-pists destined to take center stage are all about connecting with people and interests through access to the digital world.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF DECEMBER 5-11, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYTalking turkey about climate changeAnother extreme weather event disrupted one of the most popular tradi-tions here in the United States, Thanks-giving. Meteorologists at The Weath-er Channel named the winter storm Boreas, after the ancient Greek god of the north wind, the bringer of winter. They report that at least 14 people have been killed by the storm, and 58 mil-lion people have been impacted. Boreas dumped snow and freezing rain across the northeast of the country on the busi-est travel days of the years. TV weather reports follow a standard format: the intrepid crew stands alongside a snowy highway or at an airport with stranded passengers. Why not use these fossil-fueled backdrops as an opportunity to discuss climate change? Why not talk about how our lifestyles, so profoundly dependent on greenhouse gas emis-sions, from driving cars to flying in planes, contribute directly to disruptive weather? Climate science predicts that, as the planet warms, extreme weather events of all types will increase in their fre-quency and their severity. The Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research is an organization based in Britain, bring-ing together scientists and other experts to research, assess and communicate the unfolding realities of global warming. Scientists from the Tyndall Centre attended last weekÂs United Nations cli-mate summit in Warsaw, Poland. Kevin Anderson is the deputy director of the center. While Warsaw is a two-hour flight from Manchester, he spent 23 hours in transit, taking trains. ÂThe carbon dioxide emissions from flying... itÂs sort of emblematic of mod-ern life, for the wealthy few of us, that it symbolizes what we do, day in, day out. We donÂt think twice about burning more and more carbon,ÂŽ Anderson told me. He says a radical shift is needed, immediately, in how we live our lives, in order to avert climate-change-related disaster. ÂIf you sit in on the big ple-nary sessions, what you hear are these ministers with sort of platitudes and ÂWe must do something about itÂ Â„ all motherhood and apple pie... we have our cake, and we can eat it. The science is showing this is completely misguid-ed,ÂŽ Anderson said of the U.N. climate negotiations. The conference grants one member of the youth delegation time at the podium. This year, Marian Hussein Osman, a Somali youth climate activist from Mogadishu, addressed the crowd: ÂWhere human existence is non-nego-tiable, youÂve made a 21-year wager on our future. ... Greed and the petty inter-ests of a minority should not rob us of what have become inarguably inalien-able human rights. With our homes, livelihoods and even geophysical exis-tences at risk, raised ambition on cli-mate change is not optional; it is vital.ÂŽ Near the end of the summit, close to 800 people walked out, declaring Warsaw the worst summit to date. They wore signs reading, ÂPolluters Talk, We Walk,ÂŽ since the UN process in Warsaw was, for the first time, co-sponsored by the coal and petroleum industries. As the hundreds of NGO representatives and activists gathered for the walkout in the atrium in WarsawÂs National Sta-dium, the site of the climate summit, Kumi Naidoo, the executive director of Greenpeace International, took the microphone: ÂOur message to our politi-cal leaders: Understand that nature does not negotiate. You cannot change the science. And we have to change politi-cal will. And itÂs within their capacity to do that, and they cannot drag their feet any longer.ÂŽ Those who walked out wore a second message as well: the Spanish word, ÂVolveremos,ÂŽ and its English transla-tion, ÂWe Will Be Back.ÂŽ Jamie Henn of 350.org captured the spirit of the walk-out, and the collective pledge among those gathered to intensify grassroots organizing, on a global scale: ÂWeÂre beginning to figure out that to make progress on climate, we canÂt just come to these conferences and ask leaders for action; we really need to take on the industry itself.ÂŽ Q Â„ Amy Goodman is the host of ÂDemocracy Now!,ÂŽ a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the co-author of ÂThe Silenced Majority,ÂŽ a New York Times best-seller. OPINIONThe new climate deniers There are few things sadder than the Âclimate denier.ÂŽ He ignores the data and neglects the latest science. His rhetoric and policy proposals are dangerously disconnected from reality. He canÂt reca-librate to take account of the latest evi-dence because, well, heÂs a denier. The new climate deniers are the liberals who, despite their obsession with cli-mate change, have managed to miss the biggest story in climate science, which is that there hasnÂt been any global warm-ing for about a decade and a half. ÂOver the past 15 years air temperatures at the EarthÂs surface have been flat while greenhouse-gas emissions have continued to soar,ÂŽ The Economist maga-zine writes. ÂThe world added roughly 100 billion tons of carbon to the atmo-sphere between 2000 and 2010. That is about a quarter of all the CO2 put there by humanity since 1750.ÂŽ Yet, no more warming. The Economist has been decidedly alarmist on global warming through the years, so it deserves credit for pausing to consider why the warming trend it expected to continue has mysteriously stalled out. The deniers feel no such compunction. A denier feels the same righteous sense of certitude now, when warming has stopped, as he did a decade ago. Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson recently opined that Âsensible people accept the fact of warmingÂŽ Â„ but apparently not the fact of no-warming. He scorned those Âwho manipulate the data in transparently bogus ways to claim that warming has halted or even reversed course.ÂŽ Does he include James Hansen, the famous NASA scientist, among these dastardly manipulators? No one this side of Al Gore has warned as persistently about global warming as Hansen. He nonetheless admits that Âthe five-year mean global temperature has been flat for a decade.ÂŽ None of this means that the Earth didnÂt get hotter in the 20th century, or that carbon emissions donÂt tend to cre-ate a warmer planet, or that warming wonÂt necessarily begin again. It does mean that we know less about the fan-tastically complex global climate system than global-warming alarmists have been willing to admit. The Economist notes the work of Ed Hawkins of the University of Reading in Britain. He has found that if global temperatures stay the same for a few more years, they will fall below the range of 20 climate models. In other words, the scientific ÂconsensusÂŽ will have been proven wrong. Why the stall in warming? According to The Economist, maybe weÂve overes-timated the warming impact of clouds. Or maybe some clouds cool instead of warm the planet. Or maybe the oceans are absorbing heat from the atmosphere. Although the surface temperature of the oceans hasnÂt been rising, perhaps the warming is happening deep down. James Hansen thinks new coal-fired plants in China and India, releasing so-called aerosols into the atmosphere that act to suppress warming, may be partly respon-sible for the stasis in temperatures. Hey, but donÂt worry. The science is all Âsettled.ÂŽ What is beginning to seem more likely is that the ÂsensitivityÂŽ of the global climate to carbon emissions has been overestimated. If so, the deniers will be the last to admit it.

MARTY BECKER AND KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickOne of my most memorable holiday cases was the Labrador retriever puppy (what else!) who had swallowed an entire string of Christmas tree lights. When he was brought in, gagging, I opened his mouth and could still see the plug, far in the back. I have to admit that it was tempting to anesthetize him, plug it in, and see if an ethereal glow from the body would tell us where in the gas-trointestinal tract to look for the lights. This was a case that called for a special-ist, though. We didnÂt have the imaging or endoscopic equipment to locate and remove the lights. Sometimes, itÂs almost as if pets think the holidays arenÂt complete without a trip to the emergency room. They suffer electroshock burns of the mouth from chewing on Christmas tree light cords, devour whole plates full of fudge, eat the toxic mistletoe berries off kissing balls, and raid the trash for the string used to wrap the turkey or ham. WeÂve seen it all, and we donÂt want you to have to. The following tips will help you keep your dogs and cats safe, whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwan-zaa or Festivus. Q Cover garbage cans securely or place them up high or behind closed doors. Eating cooked bones or the paper or string used to wrap meat can cause intestinal obstructions or injuries. Nobody wants to spend what should be a festive day waiting to hear the results of a petÂs emergency surgery. Q Replace live holiday plants with artificial ones. Amaryllis, holly, lilies and mistletoe all have varying degrees of tox-icity. If youÂre lucky, your pet will simply nibble on them and then throw up the greenery in the middle of Uncle Mar-vinÂs long-winded story about his visit to the Grand Canyon. But in a worst-case scenario, your pet could suffer severe vomiting and diarrhea, difficulty breath-ing, or even death in a matter of hours. Q Tether the tree. What self-respecting cat isnÂt going to climb the Christmas tree? To keep it upright, use fishing line to anchor the tree to the ceiling. Sur-rounding the tree with an exercise pen Â„ tastefully decorated, of course Â„ will further protect it from marauding dogs or curious kittens. Q Say ÂnoÂŽ to tinsel and ribbons. Cats, and sometimes dogs, love to play with the shiny strands, but if swallowed, they can cut or obstruct the intestinal tract. Q Go electric. Burning candles are beautiful, but it takes only the swish of a dog or cat tail to knock them over, caus-ing burns or starting fires. Use flameless candles instead. Q Avoid shock and oww. Coat electrical cords with Bitter Apple or wrap them in tough cable covers to prevent curious pets from chewing on them. Q Scent sense. Scent diffusers and potpourri contain highly toxic essential oils. Pets who lap up the spilled liquid or ingest large amounts of potpourri can suffer severe burns to the mouth and esophagus or other serious inter-nal injuries. Keep containers away from pets, and wipe up spills immediately and thoroughly. Q Provide a retreat. Make sure your pet has a quiet place, such as a crate or little-used room, where he can go to get away from visitors, loud holiday music and the high-pitched squeals of children. Q Is it safe to put a Santa cap or antlers on your pet? Your call. How venge-ful is he? But the best way to enjoy the holidays with your pet is to schedule some extra cuddle time in front of the tree. A nice, long ear scratch will help both of you survive the season. Q PET TALES

Expires 12/31/2013. $150VALUE $150VALUE One-year countdown begins for first who need REAL ID Anne M. Gannon, Palm Beach Counry constitutional tax collector, alerts drivers born after Dec. 1, 1964, that their one-year countdown to meet the federal REAL ID deadline started on Dec. 1. Drivers and individuals with stateissued licenses and IDs born after Dec. 1, 1964, have until Dec. 1, 2014 to comply with the law. A REAL ID will be required to board a commercial flight or enter a fed-eral build-ing. Every-one else, those born before Dec. 1, 1964, are not required to have a REAL ID until Dec. 1, 2017. ÂThe intent of this law is to help keep us safe from terrorists and improve the integ-rity and security of state issued driver licenses and IDs,ÂŽ said Ms. Gannon, in a prepared statement. ÂSecure identifica-tion documents are a vital component of preventing another attack on our country like 9/11 and reducing fraud.ÂŽ How do you know if you have a REAL ID? REAL ID driver licenses and ID cards have a star in the upper right-hand corner. If you donÂt have a star, your license or ID is not REAL ID com-pliant. A REAL ID cannot be issued online or through by mail. Homeland Security requires that you bring specific, original documents to prove birth, social secu-rity and residence. If youÂve changed your name, for example by marriage, then youÂll need additional documents to prove that change, according to Ms. Gannon. ÂWe want to help people get prepared. This is an easy transaction when you bring the right documents,ÂŽ she said. ÂWe suggest against waiting until the last minute. The December 1, 2014 deadline immediately follows November, our busiest month of the year.ÂŽ People are also advised to check when their license expires. If it expires after the deadline, plan to renew early. Licenses and ID cards can be renewed 18 months in advance. In 2010, the Florida Legislature transferred the job of issuing REAL ID com-pliant driver licenses and ID cards to local tax collectors. The Palm Beach County tax collector has seven service locations that provide driver license services. Online appointments for driv-er license service are available.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF DECEMBER 5-11, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY Oklahoma roots, says, ÂIÂm Jane Mitch-ell.ÂŽ And when she heads to the centerÂs FoundersÂ Room for an interview, she pauses to offer a tour of the space, set aside for the KravisÂ key supporters. Perhaps that ability to talk to anyone and everyone is part of what made her successful in business and in life. Well, that and some creative thinking. ThatÂs what led her to run the family business, Midas Rex, learn about gem-ology to the point that she has a huge gem in the Smithsonian. Now, she has turned her attention to the arts in Palm Beach County. She credits her parents for the creativity. Dad and Mom were academics; Dad was at the University of Oklahoma. ÂGoing back to the very early days, I was involved with music, with perform-ing arts. My father was a professor of music at a university and one of his assignments in that role was to oversee the touring performing fine arts pro-gram,ÂŽ she says after settling into one of the sofas in the FoundersÂ Room. ÂHe allowed me to go with him and to tag along backstage and I got to see and meet, and sometimes as I got older, I was able to assist some with some of the stars that came to town.ÂŽ It clearly made a lasting impression on the young Ms. Mitchell. ÂIt just seemed natural to me to have an interest in a performing arts center, and especially such a fine building as this,ÂŽ she says, gesturing to the room. ÂWhen it went up, I could see this was not just an amateur Â„ this was really the real thing coming, and I guess I just really felt this was an opportunity for me right here in Palm Beach County.ÂŽ She has lived in Palm Beach County for 34 years, but before that, she had lived in Germany for a time, and later San Francisco.Family business milestoneMs. Mitchell, 65, found her career path when she partnered with her mother and uncle in the 1970s to form Midas Rex, which pioneered the first surgical power equipment. ÂThere were a lot of obstacles because it was totally new technology to have power equipment in the oper-ating room,ÂŽ she says. ÂPrior to this technology coming into the O.R., it was all hand tools, things like saws, things like drills, that really were manual tools that were powered by the surgeonÂs hands and the surgeonÂs grip and mus-cle.ÂŽ In many ways, that was as surgery had been for millennia. ÂTo introduce power equipment to that arena was totally new and it was, of course, hard to expect a surgeon to walk in on a living patient and try out something brand new,ÂŽ she says. ÂThat obstacle led us to realize there needed to be some kind of training so that surgeons could use the equipment in a non-threatening environment, not in live surgery on a patient, so that they could be comfortable and not have the risks involved with trying it in live sur-gery.ÂŽ It was a milestone, she says.ÂIt not only transformed surgery, it streamlined even a hospitalÂs view of certain surgical techniques,ÂŽ she says. A procedure to open a skull that once had taken 1 hours was reduced to a 1-minute procedure, thanks to the Midas Rex drills. ÂSo you can see how that helped the operating team, the surgeon himself, anesthesia time for the patient, quicker recovery time for the patient because of not so much anesthesia, more surgeries per day for the O.R. to be able to schedule, so it had a lot of ripple effects, not just that it was new tech-nology,ÂŽ she says. ÂIt really did cause quite a change in the procedure of that kind of operation.ÂŽ The familyÂs musical training helped Midas Rex develop a format for train-ing surgeons to use the equipment. ÂOur backgrounds as musicians actually came into play because we saw it as the need to practice,ÂŽ she says of the Midas Rex training protocol. Surgeons Âhave something new to learn, theyÂre using their hand skills, their dexterity, so this was what we lit on was the correlation between the musical skills, the dexterity training that every musician goes through and applying some of those same ideas and that concept to developing a hands-on training for this new kind of equip-ment.ÂŽ The training helped give surgeons the confidence to use the new technol-ogy. ÂThat was the breakthrough because we just could see that surgeons were far too cautious and should be cau-tious to experiment in live surgery, so we created laboratory training sessions where they could test their ideas, try it themselves and get comfortable with the equipment before using it in the operating room,ÂŽ she says. Funny thing is, the mechanics of the process were fairly basic. ÂThe whole idea of the bone drill was created by my uncle. He was a general practitioner but scrubbed in on certain neurosurgery cases,ÂŽ Ms. Mitchell says. ÂHe had seen better, more sophisticated equipment in his neighborÂs woodwork-ing shop.ÂŽ After her mother retired from a career as an educator, she partnered with Ms. MitchellÂs uncle in the busi-ness. ÂShe began to travel and I traveled with her and we called on medical cen-ters and particular prominent surgeons in the field,ÂŽ Ms. Mitchell says. ÂEven-tually, my brother came on to run the New York City office. My father also retired from his musical education in the university as the department head, so all of us just kind of kept adding on and eventually it outgrew the family circle. But then we hired Ph.D. consul-tants who brought the education atti-tude because we wanted to approach it all from an educational viewpoint.ÂŽSettling in Palm Beach CountyMs. Mitchell became chairman and CEO of the company and eventually led the company through its 1998 sale to Medtronic. Running the company had other perks. ÂItÂs eventually what led me to meet my husband,ÂŽ she says. She met her husband, Jeff Bland, at surgical con-ferences. ÂHe was doing work for his family. He eventually sold his company to Bristol-Myers, so he was free to join the company.ÂŽ Selling the company left Ms. Mitchell free to travel for pleasure, instead of work. It also allowed her to spend more time in Palm Beach County, though she also has a home in Wyoming and checks in regularly on her mother, now in her 90s and living in Texas. ÂIt really was a nice step to realize that I could finally live in this town and not just repack my suitcase when I came to town,ÂŽ she says. Once she and Mr. Bland were able to settle down for a while, they saw the areaÂs cultural landscape had been transformed. ÂWe could look around and realize how much this town had changed from when I had first moved here, and to realize that there was a blossoming culture and it was getting better all the time,ÂŽ she says. She found herself drawn to the areaÂs cultural offerings. ÂI wanted to feel this was my hometown and to get to know people here, get to have relationships right here in town. I did a planned research to think about what groups might be of interest and I found those groups representing the cultural center of life, and so it just seemed to me that the Kravis Center was a great fit for me,ÂŽ she says. Judy Mitchell, CEO of the Kravis Center and no relation to Jane Mitchell, agrees. ÂShe really has made an effort to educate herself about nonprofits in general and our business in particular. She real-ly is a very thoughtful and studied per-son,ÂŽ Judy Mitchell says by phone. ÂHer background is in for-profit business. She recognized early on that there are substantial differences in a non-profit setting and really learned how to home in on that in the efficiency.ÂŽ The Kravis CenterÂs board oversees a performing arts center that has 100 full-time and 70 part-time staff members, more than 600 volunteers and a $24 million annual operating budget. Some business people have a tough time reconciling books that show no profit. Jane Mitchell chuckles at the thought.ÂThe money that comes in kind of goes right out? Well, I guess itÂs only the balance that changes,ÂŽ she says. ÂA corporation has to spend money to make money, and the difference is that we are guided by a mission, and thatÂs the biggest thing I have come to under-stand is that weÂre providing a service.ÂŽ She joined the centerÂs board in 2006 and has gone on to chair the boardÂs Development Committee and served on the Governance/Nominating Com-mittee. ÂSheÂs a very nice woman and a very thoughtful woman. She gives a lot of thought to whatever the project is, PERFECTIONFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOJeff Bland, curator Jeffrey Post, museum director Kirk Johnson and Jane Mitchell unveil Dom Pedro at the SmithsonianÂ’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.DONALD E.

DJupiterÂ’s New Downtown Waterfront Dining, Entertainment & More Jupiter Beach at Harbourside Place whatever the topic is,ÂŽ Judy Mitchell says. ÂSheÂs very methodical. ThatÂs a good thing with an organization our size.ÂŽ Much of the Kravis CenterÂs support base has been in Palm Beach. That also is changing. The centerÂs two previous board chairs, Alex Drey-foos and William Meyer, live in or near Palm Beach. Jane Mitchell, the centerÂs first female chair, lives in Palm Beach Gardens. ÂOur support is actually pretty broad-based,ÂŽ Judy Mitchell says. ÂShe lives in the more northern part of the county. We have board representation from Boca, from Wellington. We have members of the board coming from all parts of the county. ItÂs been a gradual change. ItÂs not a sudden change. ItÂs gradually changed over the years to be much broader to really be seen as a Palm Beach County performing arts center.ÂŽDom PedroItÂs not hyperbole to suggest the Kravis Center is one of the countyÂs jewels, and Jane Mitchell certainly is familiar with all manner of gems. She studied gemology and earned her full diploma with the Gemological Institute of America. ÂThat goes back to my being such a heavy traveler and working person in my career that I had no opportunity to be here for a weekly course or constant lecture series, so I was pretty ham-pered by what I could add to my sched-ule,ÂŽ she says. She saw an advertisement for a course in a flight magazine. It was a correspondence course, with occa-sional hands-on coursework that she could complete when she was in various cities for medical conferences. She enrolled in one class as an experiment and was hooked on the power of the raw gems. ÂThatÂs the gift of the Earth. Sometimes crystals can be beautiful without a human touch,ÂŽ she says. Which brings us to a certain aquamarine, Dom Pedro. Last year, Ms. Mitchell and her husband donated the 14-inch, 10,363-carat gemstone to the Smithsonian Institu-tion, where it is on display near the Hope Diamond. Like the Hope, it is difficult to place a value on Dom Pedro, though it reportedly was offered to the Smithsonian in the late Â90s for $7 mil-lion to $10 million. It seems as though Dom Pedro was fated to become hers, then ours. In 1992, when Ms. Mitchell was visiting Idar-Oberstein, a German town known for its gems, she found a jewel-er who employed a famous stonec utter. ÂI was there the day they bought the rough piece in Brazil and it was because of that it kept my interest to check on it,ÂŽ she says. She later arranged an exhibit of the piece at Northern Trust Bank in Palm Beach; for a time, it was stored in her vault there. ÂIt rested in my bank vault and I thought it was really cool that after all those years of my knowing about it, it was in my care for an exhibit in town,ÂŽ she says. ÂThen I heard they wanted to cut it up.ÂŽ That started her on a mission.ÂSomehow that bothered me, and my husband and I decided it should not be cut up,ÂŽ she says. ThatÂs how she and Mr. Bland ended up owning the stone. ÂWe purchased it and we owned it for 13 years. We hoped it would always be on display,ÂŽ she says. Somehow, she knew Dom Pedro was meant for bigger things. ÂWe had it at home a few times, but we tried not to take any unnecessary risks,ÂŽ she says. ÂWe werenÂt frivolous with it at all. We didnÂt want to view it as something that was our private pleasure.ÂŽ She visits Dom Pedro four or five times a year, and her reaction remains the same. ÂThe color knocks me over every time I see it, even now. ThereÂs something beautiful about it. ItÂs hard to explain. I guess beauty is that way. It speaks. True beauty is recognized. ThereÂs something about the color, the clarity, the way the light plays on the cuts,ÂŽ she says. She knows the stone is where it belongs. ÂWe get mail from strangers who have been by to visit,ÂŽ she says. ÂIÂm so appreciative that someone might take the time to write a little note about how they enjoyed seeing it at the museum.ÂŽ Every facet of Dom Pedro tells a story, from the miners who pulled it from the Earth, to people who chose not to cut it up, to the c utters who enhanced its shape. But it goes beyond that, she says.ÂIt was developing its own story. In the end, I kind of see it as the final tri-umph of the piece is the response by the individual viewer.ÂŽ The same thing could be said of the Kravis CenterÂs product and, perhaps, Jane MitchellÂs own uncanny ability to find an audience.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF DECEMBER 5-11, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARYDown these mean streetsA long time ago, an investigative reporter named Peter Franceschina pulled up a chair next to mine at the bar, ordered a pint, and slapped down a piece of paper. ÂYouÂre always talking about honor,ÂŽ he said, giving the word a slightly cor-rosive ring. ÂEver seen this?ÂŽ HeÂd printed out the words of Raymond Chandler, writing not in one of his hard-bitten detective novels, but in an essay, ÂThe Simple Art of Murder.ÂŽ The words described the character Chandler molded most famously in his fiction. Chandler: a World War I veteran, a drinker, a man who was clinically depressed. Chandler: arguably one of the great literary stylists of 20th-century American fiction. When I read the words, I thought they described my friend himself, the frequently solitary Franceschina, along with another friend and investigative reporter, Lee Melsek. I thought they described my father, too, who was not an easy man to live with Â„ but he was the best man IÂve ever lived with. In the 15 intervening years since I took ChandlerÂs passage to heart, IÂve recognized a few other men and women through his looking glass, as well. Robert Hilliard, for example, the Sanibel-based novelist, playwright, and professor emeritus. A combat-wounded World War II veteran, he survived the Battle of the Bulge at 19 to help rescue about 10,000 Jews from American mis-treatment in the months following the German surrender. His daughter, Mara Verhayden-Hilliard. A Columbia University Law School grad, she could have made millions practicing corporate law or working as a defense attorney for wealthy law-breakers. Instead, she helped form the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund, in Washington, D.C., to protect the rights of the many. Laura Germino and Greg Asbed. Brown University graduates, together they founded the Coalition of Immo-kalee Workers and spent the last two decades improving the lives of thou-sands of the most poor and most impor-tant contributors to our well-fed society Â„ immigrant and migrant farm workers. Jeff Cull. A Naval Academy graduate and retired Navy commander who flew jets off aircraft carriers, he decided to become an investigative reporter and later a co-owner and the executive edi-tor of this paper. Investigative reporters are often unpopular, because often they have to investigate people with power, money and influence who are very popular Â„ which is also true of federal prosecutors. Especially Doug Molloy. Molloy: the long-haired, cowboy-booted hotshot of an Assistant U.S. Attorney in FloridaÂs Middle District who retired last month after decades spent busting bad guys in state and federal court. Molloy: a film expert, a mesmerizing storyteller and writer, an aging but unrepentant rock ÂnÂ roller with the ferocity of a warrior and the instinctive lyricism of a poet. Molloy: an intensely loyal and proud father. The week he quit, he had both knees replaced. A few days later Â„ suited and booted Â„ he hobbled out to meet me. ÂAre you in pain?ÂŽ I asked.ÂThis is nothing,ÂŽ he replied. ÂIÂve been married three times.ÂŽ All of these men and women have one thing in common: In the most literal and forceful sense, theyÂre patriots, as wor-thy of the title as any founding father or mother, or as any Marine or soldier or sailor. None are flag wavers, however. Instead, theyÂre scarred, starred and barred characters of the most resilient variety. ÂEverybody has a story,ÂŽ Molloy told me. Some had parents who werenÂt perfect. Some had parents who died too young. Some had family members who died too young. Some had spouses who werenÂt perfect. And some of them arenÂt perfect themselves, as hard as that is to believe. But all of them fly the same imperative banner above their lives. These are its colors: Insist on the rule of law, the Constitutional freedoms, and equal rights. Practice personal tolerance and compassion when possible but employ fierce resolve when required. And finally, always go armed with that single blood-shedding, gut-busting, no-retreat notion: either do the right thing, or go down trying. When he was 16, he told me, Molloy ran across the same lines by Chandler that Peter Franceschina shared with me years ago, and IÂm about to share with you. They helped shape his life. HereÂs what Chandler wrote:ÂDown these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is nei-ther tarnished nor afraidÂƒ. ÂHe is the hero; he is everything. He must be a complete man and a com-mon man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor Â„ by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. He must be the best man in his world and a good enough man for any world. I do not care much about his private life; he is neither a eunuch nor a satyrÂƒif he is a man of honor in one thing, he is that in all things. ÂHe is a relatively poor man, or he would not be a detective at all. He is a common man or he could not go among common people. He has a sense of char-acter, or he would not know his job. He will take no manÂs money dishonestly and no manÂs insolence without due and dispassionate revenge. He is a lonely man and his pride is that you will treat him as a proud man or be very sorry you ever saw him. He talks as the man of his age talks Â„ that is, with rude wit, a lively sense of the grotesque, a disgust for sham, and a contempt for pettiness. ÂÂƒ If there were enough like him, the world would be a very safe place to live in, without becoming too dull to be worth living in.ÂŽ Q W B a t G i roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com KOVEL: ANTIQUESFamous artists can be part of your collection BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELSpecial to Florida WeeklyArtists often create many different kinds of art: paintings, etchings, prints, ceram-ics, jewelry, furniture, marble sculptures, bronzes and perhaps designs for commer-cial products. So it is possible to buy a piece of jewelry by Alexander Calder for far less than one of his large mobiles. Or an electric fan or pedal car designed by Viktor Schreck-engost, who is best known for making the ceramic ÂJazz Bowl,ÂŽ an icon that has sold for as much as $200,000. Works by famous artists can be part of your collection if you buy war bond posters (Norman Rockwell) or advertising figures (Maxfield Parrish) or teapots (Michael Graves). Lockwood de Forest (1850-1932) was an American artist and decorator who worked in the American Orientalist style, influenced by his travels in India and the Middle East. By 1915, he had moved to California, and his paintings were typical California landscapes. Today collectors are again searching for some of his furniture, jewelry and textiles made after 1879 at the Ahmedabad Wood Carving Co. and later at Tiffany. De ForestÂs furniture was modeled after chairs he had seen in Indian palaces. It was hand-crafted of teak, brass and other materials. A pair of 1881 chairs designed by de Forest sold for $242,500 at Bonhams New York in Sep-tember 2013. But bidding on the chairs may have gone that high because de Forest used them in his own home and they were later purchased by William Randolph Hearst, the famous newspaper publisher. Q: I have a picture of a bouquet of flowers painted on porcelain. It is framed and there is a label on the back that reads ÂA Motta-hedeh Design.ÂŽ I would love to know more about it and its value. A: Mottahedeh & Co. was founded in 1929 by Rafi and Mildred Mottahedeh. The couple had the largest privately held col-lection of Chinese Export porcelain in the world at that time. The company made reproductions of pieces in the collection as well as copies of other fine china. The reproductions were sold at Tiffany and Co. and gift shops. Mottahedeh also made reproductions of museum pieces, includ-ing items made of porcelain, brass, crystal, silver and stoneware. It has made reproduc-tions for the White House, the State Depart-ment and several museums and historical sites. The company was sold in 1992, but itÂs still in business, making reproductions. It has headquarters in Cranbury, N.J. Value of your painted porcelain plaque is about $150. Q: My mother saved S&H green stamps in the 1970s, and she used the stamps to get me a bank that looked like a little cash register. It was green and had a panel on the front that read ÂUncle SamÂs 3 Coin Register Bank.ÂŽ I loved it, but I lost it years ago. In 1996 we bought a house and found the same kind of bank in our attic, but this one is black tin. It has the same front panel. I can read only the bottom of the faded back panel, which reads ÂDurable Toy & Novelty Co., Division of Western Stamping Co., Jackson, Michigan.ÂŽ Does this toy we found in the attic have any value? A: Durable Toy & Novelty Co. invented a single-coin Uncle SamÂs register bank in 1906. The three-coin version was first made in 1923. It was made of cold rolled steel, and instruc-tions for operating the bank were painted on the back. The bank accepts nickels, dimes and quarters and canÂt be opened until $10 has been deposited. Western Stamp-ing Co. bought Durable Toy & Novelty Co. in 1958 and continued to make the three-coin bank until the 1980s. Production was moved to Asia in the 1960s, and the bank was then made of tin instead of steel. The tin bank was made in different enameled colors, including black, green and red. A limited edition was made in chrome in 1981 to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the bank. Your black tin bank was made after 1960 and sells for $15 to $25. Q: I have some old postcards with colored drawings of the head and shoulders of pretty women wearing big hats or Indian headdresses. The pictures are copyrighted by Schlesinger Bros., New York. What are they worth? A: The Schlesinger brothers were photographers in business in New York from 1907 until the 1920s. The company published greeting cards as well as postcards. The pic-tures on your postcards are hand-colored photomechanical reproduc-tions of pencil drawings. They also were produced in a large size, suitable for framing and hanging on the wall. Postcards with pictures like yours sell for about $10 each. Q: I have a wooden coat hanger marked ÂW.J. Woods, SpringfieldÂs oldest clothing store, established 1848.ÂŽ The ÂarmsÂŽ of the hanger can be folded so that it com-pletely collapses for storage. Can you tell me when it was made? A: The W.J. Woods Co. sold clothing for men and boys. It had stores in sev-eral cities in Massachu-setts, including Springfield, Worcester, Utica, Providence and Brockton. It was in business until at least the 1920s. Tip: Use shallow boxes to store dolls. They are not to be piled on top of each other. Q Â„ Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

The Bildner-Winer Leadership Succession Initiative, generously underwritten by Joan and Allen Bildner and Marilyn and Michael Winer, will offer inspirational, educa-tional and leadership development pro-grams to a select group of promising individuals in the community. The pro-gram will include five training activi-ties, including a one-week journey of discovery to Israel; two two-day domes-tic retreats; and dinner events. ÂWe truly believe that investing in the right people pays precious and endur-ing dividends,ÂŽ said CEO David Phillips, in a prepared statement. ÂThatÂs why we designed this exciting initiative to allow us to expand our bench strength and continue to lay the groundwork for a vibrant and vital future.ÂŽ This leadership development program will include interactive education and learning opportunities, including guest lectures, local and overseas site visits, and in-person meetings with top Jewish executives, philanthropists and long-time leaders in the community. Scholars will provide sessions on lead-ership, team-building and philanthropy, as well as offer tips on how to motivate and engage others. ÂThe Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County wants to ensure the continuity of dedicated, skilled and knowledgeable leaders who will help carry the Federa-tion into the future and serve on behalf of the entire Jewish community,ÂŽ said Federation President Sandy Baklor, in the statement. The group will be limited by design to create a sense of shared commit-ment and responsibility. Participants are expected to assume a senior level role at the federation when service is requested, make a meaningful capacity contribution to the Annual Campaign, attend a meeting to discuss legacy giv-ing, and be present at all five programs. ÂNo community can exist and thrive without strong, clear leadership ground-ed in values and integrity,ÂŽ said Allen Bildner. ÂIt is our honor to invest in this wonderful program that is designed to create the kind of empathetic, strategic leaders of heart and substance who will drive this community forward in the years to come.ÂŽ Michael Winer added, ÂBeing a leader takes drive and sound thinking, which come from an individualÂs core values and beliefs. Funding the LSI program is a way in which our family can make an important contribution to the leader-ship development efforts in our com-munity, and we are pleased to do it.ÂŽ The cost to participate, including land expenses in Israel for transportation, tour guides, overnight accommodations and meals, will be underwritten for each selected leader. Participants will only be expected to pay for roundtrip airfare. Spouses or significant others are encouraged to attend all of the pro-grams at their own expense. To volunteer or to nominate someone, contact Dr. Helene Lotman, executive vice president and chief talent officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 242-6659.

BrownsÂ’ gift to El Sol to fund English classes A gift of $70,000 from philanthropists Ann Brown and Don Brown will ensure that the El Sol Resource Center can offer daytime English classes for two more years. The donation covers salaries of three daytime English teachers and an Ameri-Corps computer lab instructor. The free classes are held three days a week and attended by workers waiting to be hired for jobs. ÂIt is really people like Ann and Donald Brown that help fill such critical needs that benefit the community and we couldn't do it without them,ÂŽ said El Sol Executive Director Jocelyn Skolnik, in a prepared statement. ÂTheir gener-osity enabled us to expand and sustain the daytime English classes that were cut back last year when budget cuts forced the Palm Beach County School District to end its support of the pro-gram.ÂŽ The Bro wnsÂ gift is inspired by the coupleÂs lifelong commitment to educa-tion for children and adults, according to the statement. Mrs. Brown, a member of El SolÂs board of directors, said, ÂIt is abso-lutely critical for all immigrants to learn English and for their families to learn English.ÂŽ The importance of learning to speak and write English well was ingrained in her at an early age, Mrs. Brown said. Her mother was an English teacher who stressed the importance of proper gram-mar, she said. Ann formerly was a two-term chairman of the U.S. Consumer Product Safe-ty Commission in Washington, D.C. As chairman she was recognized for revi-talizing the agency and for her caring and concern for the safety of AmericaÂs families. She attended Smith College and graduated from George Washington Univer-sity in Washington, D.C. Mrs. Brown is a senior adviser to the nonprofit group Safe Kids and previ-ously served on the board of directors of the Hanley Center in West Palm Beach. The couple has a joint interest in education and in helping people get out of poverty, Mr. Brown said in the statement. A retired developer and teacher, Mr. Brown is the son of Russian immigrant parents. He holds law degrees from Georgetown and George Washington University and taught for 12 years at Harvard Business School. He was founder of the SEED school of Washington, D.C., the nationÂs first pub-lic boarding school, and a second SEED school in Baltimore. Mr. Brown currently is on the adult education board of Florida Atlantic Uni-versity and is vice chairman of the board of directors of Palm Beach Dramaworks in West Palm Beach. The couple lives in Palm Beach Gardens, and has a home in Washington, D.C. Q The Town council of Juno Beach will unveil and dedicate the new art work that was commissioned by artist Mark Fuller for the ÂJuno Beach 9/11 Remem-brance Project.ÂŽ The dedication will be held at the project site on Dec. 6 from 5:30 p.m, to 6 p.m. at 340 Ocean Drive, Juno Beach.

The two commen-taries were contrasted in a November Wall Street Journal report on the introduction of Masik Collegiate Fragranc esÂ Texas A&M cologne (one of 17 Masik col-lege clients) at around $40 for a 1.7-ounce bottle. Louisiana State UniversityÂs scent conjures up, insisted one grad, the cam-pusÂs oak trees, but so far has pulled in only $5,500 for the school. (To a football rival of LSU, the schoolÂs classic smell is less oak tree than Âcorn dog.ÂŽ) The appar-ent gold standard of fan fragrance is New York Yankees cologne, which earned the team nearly $10 million in 2012. Q A real ladiesÂ’ manQ Among AmericaÂs most prolific ÂfathersÂŽ (in this case, perhaps better considered Âegg-fertilizersÂŽ) are Nathan-iel Smith, age 39, who claimed on TVÂs ÂDivorce CourtÂŽ in September that he is the father of 27. The late Samuel Whit-neyÂs grown stepdaughter Lexie Woods learned that he claimed 54 before he died in July at age 87. Smith (known in Day-ton, Ohio, as ÂHustle SimmonsÂŽ) insisted that he is a fine father (doesnÂt smoke or drink, keeps contact with most of the kids, has ÂonlyÂŽ 21 child-support orders out), and besides, he told WHIO-TV, ÂI know of people who have even more than me.ÂŽ (Among WhitneyÂs belongings, said Woods, were a ÂpileÂŽ of birth certificates and a stash of maximum-strength Viagra. ÂHe was a likable man, a ladiesÂ man.ÂŽ) Q Collateral damageQ In October, a 28-year-old man, reeling from a domestic argument in Port Richey, put a gun to his head and, against his girlfriendÂs pleas, fired. As a neighbor across the street stood on her porch, the suicide bullet left the victimÂs head and made three wounds on the neighborÂs leg, sending her to the hospital. Q About a week later, on the Norwegian island of Vesteroy, a moose hunter missed his target but hit an obscured cot-tage in the distance, wounding a man in his 70s as he answered natureÂs call. He was airlifted to Ullevaal University Hos-pital in Oslo. Q Aerial questionsIn November, barely two weeks after a small plane carrying 10 skydivers left no survivors when it crashed on the way to an exhibition near Brussels, Belgium, nine skydivers were able to dive for safety when two planes headed for a tandem jump collided near Superior, Wis. News stories did not address how experienced skydivers escaped one plane but not the other. Q Religious servicesQ In September, Orthodox Jewish communities once again staged traditional kaparot, in which chickens are killed in a prescribed way for the purpose of Âtrans-ferringÂŽ a believerÂs latest sins over to the chicken (whose death banishes the sins). (In many such ceremonies, the chickens are donated for food, but protesters in Los Angeles criticized rogue practitioners who simply tossed carcasses into the trash.) Q In November, Miami-Dade County animal services found a severely injured chicken with a familyÂs 4-by-6 photo-graph protruding from its chest, having been haphazardly Âimplanted,ÂŽ along with a note containing several hand-written names, apparently a casualty of local San-teria services. Q Too fast for small investorsQ Some Americans still believe that stock market sales are typically made human-to-human, but the vast majority of buys and sells now are made automatically by computers, running pattern-detecting programs designed to execute millions of trades, in some cases, less than one second before rival computer programs attempt the same trades. In September, a Federal Reserve Board crisis involved, at most, seven millisecondsÂ time. The Fed releases market-crucial news typically at exactly 2 p.m. Washington, D.C., time, tightly controlled, transmitted by desig-nated news agents via fiber optic cable. On Sept. 18, somehow, traders in Chicago reportedly beat traders elsewhere to deal an estimated $600 million worth of assets Â„ when theoretically, access to the FedÂs news should have been random. (In other words, the drive to shave milliseconds off the Âspeed of lightÂŽ has become quite profitable.) Q Potty newsQ Toilets are always a favorite protest symbol, most recently employed by David Labbe, disputing a zoning decision by offi-cials in Augusta, Maine, preventing the sale of his house to DunkinÂ Donuts. To protest, he has begun lining his property with discarded toilets. Augusta-native Labbe says he has given upon his city and his neighbors who fear traffic problems if a Dunkin Donuts opens. On the same day, coincidentally, toilets made news in Los Angeles, where YoYo Li was about to open the cityÂs first toilet-themed restaurant, patterned after several in Taiwan in which diners squat at tables and eat off commode-shaped serving ves-sels.

A18 NEWS WEEK OF DECEMBER 5-11, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY You can fix that unhappy relationship Â— but it will take workNancy looked at the melted container of Haagen Dazs with disgust. No matter how many times she reminded Ralph, he never used his head. She stormed into the family room, letting Ralph know Â„ in no uncertain terms Â„ that she Âd had it: ÂOf course, now that the company has left, youÂre relaxing on the couch and everything gets left for me to clean up! You have absolutely NO consideration at all.ÂŽ Ralph was furious. Nancy never seemed to notice the efforts he made. He was convinced she RELISHED catching him at fault. ÂCanÂt a guy relax, without hearing about it all the time? I was up early this morning. I set up the chairs. I went to the store for the wine and flowers. But I never get credit for anything I do. All you do is criticize me. I donÂt know why I bother at all.ÂŽ From NancyÂs perspective, she was the long-suffering wife Â„ misunderstood and rarely appreciated. All sheÂd ever wanted was a husband who was considerate and appreciative. Ralph, on the other hand, felt completely demoralized. Even when he did make an effort, Nancy would find fault and jab at him for the things he did not do.Yes, many of us have been in seemingly impossible relationships. We may carry a laundry list of the slights and injustices we believe weÂve endured. We may even feel sorry for ourselves, convinced weÂre the victims of unreasonable mistreatment. ItÂs never pleasant to entertain the notion that our attitude and behavior may have a lot to do with the difficul-ties and distress in our relationships. It couldnÂt be OUR fault weÂre not getting along. Or, could it? Although Nancy and Ralph are a fictionalized couple, a lot of us may sheepishly identify with the described interaction. Both Nancy and Ralph see themselves as the unappreciated victims in an unhappy relationship. Nancy doesnÂt see how her critical negativity may discourage Ralph and deter any motivation he may have to please her. Ralph, on the other hand, may not see that his laxness can be quite irritating and may provoke Nan-cyÂs wrath. In ÂFeeling Good Together,ÂŽ psychiatrist Dr. David Burns outlines an approach to human relationships that he calls CIT (cognitive interpersonal therapy.) He states that CIT is based on three ideas. First, ÂWe all provoke and maintain the exact relationship problems that we complain about. However, we donÂt seem to realize that weÂre doing this, so we feel like victims and tell ourselves that the problem is all the other personÂs fault.ÂŽ Secondly, ÂWe deny our own role in the conflict because self-examination is so shocking and painful, and because weÂre secretly rewarded by the problem weÂre complaining about.ÂŽ And, ÂWe all have far more power than we think to transform troubled relationships Â„ if weÂre willing to stop blaming the other person and focus instead on changing ourselves.ÂŽ ÂYou can often reverse years of bitterness and mistrust almost instantly Â„ but youÂll have to be willing to work hard and experience some pain along the way if you want to experience this kind of miracle.ÂŽ Dr. Burns asserts that, in order to motivate another person to change, Âyou have to examine your own behavior and see if youÂre subconsciously fueling the fire.ÂŽ When both parties are at odds and working against each other, theyÂre both also standing in the way of increased intimacy and enjoyment. Most of us prefer to point the finger and bemoan the fact that weÂre the victims. Of course, there are always instances where we interface with peo-ple who are so difficult or troubled no amount of effort will make a significant difference. However, much of the time, we can be hugely influential in turning disappointing relationships around if we consider approaching the other per-son in a notably different way. It takes a tremendous amount of courage and humility to focus inward when trying to improve relationships. However, countless mental health pro-fessionals will confirm that focusing on ourselves, and making productive changes in how we reach out to impor-tant people may be an important first step. And, when we initiate responsible changes, it may be very gratifying to observe how our partners may soft-en, and, in turn, respond with genuine efforts of their own.

ItÂs Mobile. ADVERTISEMENT Ask The Health & Beauty Experts ASK THE COSMETIC SURGEON Question: When should I get a filler if I want to look best for a holiday party? Answer: The holidays are approaching and many patients are seeking consultations for facial fillers and botox/dysport which offer quick improvement with no down time and few risks. Consider these issues when deciding on scheduling your visit: 1. Allow 2 weeks for all bruising to resolve Bruises can occur with any injection procedure. Luckily, they are rare in my experience. Avoiding aspirin, ibuprofen or fish oil one week prior to a treatment and very slow injection techniques help to avoid bruising. Arnica montana cream can decrease bruising and yellow or green tint concealer can cover a resolving bruise. 2. Botox can take 5-7 days to take effect Unfortunately, Botox or Dysport wonÂ’t work overnight. I recommend to get injected a week before an important social event. If you plan even further ahead, you also leave time for minor touch ups. 3. Facial fillers evolve with time For the most part, the effect of facial fillers is instantaneous. There is a period of time afterwards that you may notice subtle changes. This is especially true with Juvederm since it absorbs water. These changes usually take about a week to occur. The main message is to plan ahead. This allows me more flexibility to achieve the look you desire. Scheduling a consultation one to two weeks ahead is very helpful. To see if an injectable filler or botox is right for you, please call my office to schedule a free consultation.

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

Studies show the risk of dying from a heart attack is greater in the winter than at any other time of year, with cardiac mortality at its highest in December and January. While the reasons for the increase in heart attacks are complex Â„ including changes in hormone, stress and exertion levels Â„ you can take steps to reduce your risk. There are several reasons heart attacks are more frequent in winter. First, during the winter months, changes in hormonal balances put indi-viduals at greater risk for cardiovascular problems. In addition, the colder temperatures cause arteries to tighten, restricting blood flow, reducing oxygen to the heart and causing blood pressure to increase, all of which can set the stage for a heart attack, especially in plaque-clogged arteries. During winter months people tend to exercise and do yard work and other physical activity earlier in the day. Since blood pressure rises naturally in the morning, increased exertion early in the day can contribute to heart attacks. The flu season also may play a role in the increased number of heart attacks. The influenza virus may trigger inflam-mation of the heart, which may cause a heart attack. The holidays may play a role in the increased number of heart attacks. Peo-ple overindulge in food and alcohol, which often leads to weight gain and contributes to the risk for heart attack. Alcohol has its own heart risks, increasing blood pressure, contributing to abnormal heart rhythms and increas-ing the risk of depression. The hustle and bustle of the holiday season can also be a source of stress, with many people pressed for time and money. Anxiety and depression tend to increase during this time of year, further increas-ing the risk of heart attack. Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center Âs nationally accredited Chest Pain Center is capable of rapidly diagnosing and treating heart attacks. Timing is essential when it comes to heart attacks; fast treatment can become a life or death matter and can also define the quality of life after the attack. The symptoms of a heart attack must be recognized imme-diately once the attack occurs. Though there are several reasons heart attacks are more common in win-ter, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Cen-ter recommends steps you can take to reduce your risk. First, avoid over-exertion and talk to your doctor about appropriate physical activity. The holidays provide ample opportunities to eat and drink, but try to do so in moderation. Avoid caffeine and nico-tine, both of which can exacerbate heart problems, and consider taking at least 400 IU (international units) of vitamin D each day. Low levels of vitamin D have been found more often in heart attack patients. Finally, be sure to get your flu shot, which can cut your risk of heart attack in half. In any season, the best medicine to ward off heart attacks is prevention: Cultivate heart-healthy habits, such as regular exercise, weight control, and a diet rich in fiber, fruits and vegetables. Also, know your cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar levels. Finally, to combat the holiday blues, take solace in the company of friends and loved ones. Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center recently celebrated 30 years of perform-ing open-heart surgeries. The hospital performed the first surgery in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast in 1983 and has since remained one of the areaÂs leading heart hospitals.

A20 BUSINESS WEEK OF DECEMBER 5-11, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY ObamacareÂ’s likely economic consequencesOnly U.S. citizens living in a cave would be unaware of the massive problems in the rollout of Obamacare. Its delays, disloca-tions and confusions all translate into eco-nomic waste and added expense. So great have been the Obamacare problems that the unbelievable recently happened within our legislatures: many Democrats aligned with Republicans to temporally put on hold certain features of Obamacare. This banding together came on the heels of millions of citizens facing ter-mination of their once-affordable policies. However, the one-year delay in full rollout of Obamacare has been rejected by approximately 20 percent of the states with another 40 percent still undecided as of this writing. A delay will not stall hefty increas-es in health-care premiums for those who have purchased individual health insurance for themselves and their families, and for those who are covered under small-group insurance Â„ an estimated 15 million peo-ple. In fact, the delay was rejected by many states that felt it would cause further dislo-cations in the insurance markets and con-fuse those needing insurance even more. Beyond the immediate costs of fixing website glitches even after $1 billion was spent in the website Âs design, beyond the hundreds of millions spent to make Obamacare operational, beyond the personal trauma of dropped insurance, and beyond the sting of significantly higher health-insurance premiums as a result of Obamacare, there are absolute costs to the economy of Obamacare, and that pain is yet to be felt. What was promised was a Âfiscally neutralÂŽ social solution, neither reducing gross domestic product growth nor adding to it; neither making money nor adding to the federal deficit. But those promises are clearly not in the cards Â„ unless the 2,700-page plan gets dramatic fixes. Obamacare is likely to become a saga of costly health-care dislocations; it will, at minimum, have a recessionary impact and might result in something worse: stagfla-tion, an economic environment in which there are rising costs but the economy is stagnant, not growing. As stated in last weekÂs column, the risks of recession are much greater at this juncture in that the tools and game plan of the Federal Reserve Bank seem to have run their course and have effected only paltry economic growth. If interest rates are already near zero and we slip into recession, then how are rates to be lowered to stimulate? Will negative interest rates be used? There has been a very large spike in premiums for those covered under individual policies. These increases have been estimated to run as high as 50 percent for the small busi-ness owner and for the individual. The impact on premiums for group policies of larger corporations is not fully known at this time in that corporations were granted a one-year delay for Obamacare implementation. According to the Congressional Budget Office, 156 million Americans Â„ more than half the population Â„ was covered by employer-sponsored insurance in 2013. It is expected that corporate plans will see meaningful rate hikes and, per Forbes: ÂThe mid-range estimate is that 66 percent of small employer plans and 45 percent of large employer plans will relinquish their grandfather status by the end of 2013,ÂŽ wrote the administration. All in all, more than half of employer-sponsored plans will lose their Âgrandfather statusÂŽ and become illegal (Forbes, Oct. 31, ÂObama Officials In 2010: 93 Million Americans Will Be Unable to Keep Their Health Plans under Obam-acareÂŽ). These changes could be huge problems for businesses and workers Â„ a very recessionary force that will be fully felt one year from now. Spikes in premiums reduce disposable income, so fewer ÂthingsÂŽ can be bought, less money is available to make mortgage payments, etc. Spikes in group-insurance premiums will reduce business capital investment, new hiring and possibly exist-ing employeesÂ salaries. Cutbacks in these two key components of gross domestic product Â„ consumption and business capital investment Â„ would have to be offset by unlikely increases in net exports and government expenditures for a neutral effect on GDP. Besides a recessionary aspect, Obamacare has inflationary elements: self-employed individuals and businesses will likely seek to recapture their health-care increases by increasing prices for their goods and services. Small businesses, the lifeblood of U.S. economic recovery, might have already cut workersÂ hours and jobs in preparation for 2015, when they will be required to offer health insurance to their employees. By 2015, businesses with 50 or more full-time-equivalent employees will be required to offer workers health insurance or pay a fine. It is expected that premiums will dramatically rise for younger men and women who will subsidize the cost of health care for older, sicker Americans. But the young people needed to fund the program might get derailed: many feel great and would prefer to pay the penalty for non-insurance than pay $1,200-plus for insurance cover-age. What if they get sick? They will apply for insurance and canÂt be refused due to their pre-existing condition. Collectively, the cost of the program is many trillions and can curb GDP, lower tax revenues, worsen the deficit and, possibly, create inflation coup led with stagnation in the economy.

When it doubt, delete! Q Stranded grandkids: ItÂs the classic Âgrandparent scam.ÂŽ If your grandchild, other relative or friend calls or e-mails to say they were robbed or hurt overseas, check before wiring money. Q Counterfeit gifts: Low prices on luxury goods are almost always cheap coun-terfeits. At best, youÂll look like a Scrooge. At worst, you may be helping finance drug traffickers or terrorists. Q Pickpockets: Need we say more? Keep your purse or wallet secure when shopping. DonÂt get overburdened or put shopping bags down, even for a moment. Thieves are watching! Q Stolen gift cards: Buy gift cards only from reputable dealers, not online or from individuals. ItÂs easy for a scammer to sell you the card, then pull off the funds before you can even give the gift. Q Fake coupons: Be cautious when downloading coupons. Always make sure you are at a retailerÂs real website. Be espe-cially careful with coupon sites that ask for personal information. Q Santa scammers: What could be more jolly than a letter from Santa addressed directly to your child? Make sure the site is real and not gathering your data for identity theft purposes. Q Fake charities: Charities count on end-of-the-year giving, so be generous if you can. But be careful, too, because scam-mers set up fake charities with similar sounding names. Q Bogus websites: ItÂs easy to mimic a real website, with logos and everything. Red flags: http (not the more secure https), no contact information, asking for payment by wire or money card. Q Travel scams: With busy holiday travel, bargains may be tempting. Be cau-tious when booking through online ads, never wire money to someone you donÂt know, and ask for references. Q Romance scams: Everyone wants a special someone under the mistletoe, so holidays are prime time for scams. Be careful with an online sweetheart who gets cozy too fast or asks for money. Q Puppy scams: Be very careful buying pets online, especially at the holidays. You may get a puppy mill pooch with problems, or you may get nothing at all because it was a scam.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF DECEMBER 5-11, 2013 NEWS A23 shadow on a 19-foot Flying Scot sailboat, beached and titled to starboard, waiting for water, and a garage door opens to the McNally loft: not an elevated aerie or sleeping nest but a workplace. A Âsail loft,ÂŽ he explains, is an interior space large enough to lay out, piece together and sew a finished product. The word comes from what the wind puts in a sail, filling it full. He has moved this space and its wood floor three times and expanded it, too, stretching onto it sail-cloth and other material from three-foot-wide bolts out full-length, ranging to 1,500 square feet, to measure, to cut, to sew and fit tight. He pins fabric to floor with awls. He reams out slots and holes with a drill, hammers grommets into place with a mallet. He does his sewing on two ven-erable Consew machines, one straight-stitch, for a tight and true line, one zig-zag, for strength. His calling card reads ÂRigging, sales, repairs, canvas, sailboat sales/charter/lessons.ÂŽ He might add ÂescapeÂŽ and Ârenewal.ÂŽ He is an engineer of gossamer getaways. ÂIn GodÂs creation, you know, you donÂt have any engine noise,ÂŽ he says. ÂSailing is natural power. ItÂs just nice to be out there, away from the hustle-and-bustle of the world. Even if youÂre just somewhere near shore, youÂre close to civilization but youÂre really away, see-ing some cool stuff.ÂŽ To get out there, though, you need a hull, a deck, a mast, rigging, a set of sails. Sailing canÂt be passive, at least not for the captain, and sail-making takes a craftsmanÂs hand. The act and art of sailing, Mr. McNally says, stepping across a wood floor bro-caded with markings for measurements, is about angles, plotting them, reading them, using them. The prime angle is set by the wind, and the wind shifts and dances. So sailing is also about sur-prises, the kind that can bollix all that figuring and reward it, too. HeÂs at work, one morning, repairing the stitching in a kite-boarderÂs kite. Rarely simple. ÂThe kites down on the beach, you know, they have spinnaker cloth, really light cloth,ÂŽ he says. ÂThis one is set up in a sleeve, so I canÂt just stick it under the sewing machine. They sewed the binding on, folded it back over and sewed it again.ÂŽ He has to pull it all apart before he can cinch it back together. In the afternoon, he says, heÂll head out to a boat to sew a couple of broken slides back on a sail. He can still cut-and-stitch the sail itself with the best of them. Mr. McNallyÂs stock-in-trade is far from the weather-beaten, water-stained, straight-sheeted canvas of lateen rigs and galleons, brigantines and clipper ships. He still trades in canvas but most often handles the plastic and composite fabrics of nu-tech. To repair the dayÂs covers, he uses Teflon thread; his prime sailcloth thread is called B-92, a sun-resistant polyester. One of his standard materials, in fact, looks close-up like decorative art, gold threads of Cap-tiva yarn laid cross-hatch and at angles across Kevlar over a backing of Mylar, shiny, strong, light, flexible. Old-fashioned canvas, he explains, lies flat and stretches. Newer materials keep their shape and can be curved, like a wing. ÂDacron is the one we use most, all different weights and styles and fin-ishes,ÂŽ he says. ÂThen you can go into the synthetic plastic stuff, you know, Kevlar, Spectra, Mylar.ÂŽ He also works the smartphone, the incoming, the outgoing, the photo files. He sometimes sends words and pictures while leaning at the helm. What industrial chemistry and computer-driven technology have done for sails and communicating about them, though, has mostly un-done sail-mak-ers. As with so many other trades, the machinery and economy of mass and computerized production have turned artisans into attendants. What sailmak-ers once designed and cut out by hand is now pieced more quickly with less waste by electronic scanners and plotters and sewn en masse. Much of that takes place overseas. ÂBack when we were mak-ing sails in a loft in the U.S., when I was younger, Neil Pryde was making sail off-shore, and we used to make fun of him, call Âem Hong Kong sails, have to re-cut Âem,ÂŽ he says. ÂBut then they became big, because theyÂre cheap. Now thatÂs happened with everything. Sri Lanka and China have these huge places that make sails. So a lot of people will say theyÂre sail-makers in the U.S., but theyÂre still making sails offshore.ÂŽ Gulfstream Sailmakers no longer centers on the making. On this day, the proprietor is putting a new cover on a furling jib, to protect it from the sun, and sewing an umbrella cover for another jib, not as satisfying as cutting and sewing the jib itself or a mainsail or spinnaker, but better-paying. Nowa-days, most of the sails he designs are assembled and stitched in a sail loft in South Carolina; then he takes them to boats and installs them. ÂItÂs a lot less labor for me,ÂŽ he says. For income, and for energy, Mr. McNal-ly has branched into brokering, find-ing and selling sailing yachts. While the ÂromanceÂŽ of old-time sail-making might translate to calluses and sweat, he does appreciate the handmade beauty of one of the yachts heÂs marketing, the ÂNarwhal,ÂŽ an American Marine 50-foot Grandbank trawler, current price U.S. $119,000. He smiles and says, ÂOver the years, itÂs probably had a million dolars of work done on it. All-mahogany inte-riors. A cool boat.ÂŽ What he sells, he says, he also sails, to wherever the boat is going. John McNally, for one, doesnÂt miss the manual labor. The term ÂhandmadeÂŽ may have a romance to it, but the handmaking is slow, arduous and expensive. ÂItÂs just work,ÂŽ he says. Just then, his daughter Jessica calls through the open garage door, smiles, waves. You labor at a craft for food and shelter, sure, but there are always other motives. Since he was a little boy, sailing meant family. ÂI was a kid, sailing, racing with my Dad and my two brothers over in St. Petersburg,ÂŽ he says. ÂMy Dad came home from a boat show, and he bought a Pearson 26 (a sloop). That changed my life. Then he bought a Lindenbergh 26, and then we had little boats, Razors and stuff like that. We couldnÂt wait to get on the water.ÂŽ Back in the concreteand-sheetrock world, he struggled to chart a course for his life, as so many do. In a sense, he let the wind take him. It took him to a familiar Â… and a family Â… place. ÂI had gone to junior college and didnÂt really know what I was going to do,ÂŽ Mr. McNally recalls. ÂMy brother was working for the summer at a sail loft, Johnson Sails, while he was going to school, and so we both worked there during the summer. Then he went back to school and I just kept working there. We didnÂt sew; all we did was lay out sails and get them prepared to be sewn by seamstresses, who were in a room. ÂI didnÂt know how to sew, so I was curious. People would complain about how hard it was, and I had the time to do it over again. So at lunchtime I sat down and taught myself how to sew.ÂŽ Some people like sailing alone, others prefer a crew, teamwork, company. Mr. McNally works at his trade alone, now, but nothing replaces family and friends. Look at this, he says, plucking up the smartphone, and he kneads the screen. The first photo shows his family on a dock, the Flying Scot floating just behind them: his wife, Janine; his three children, Jessica, 27; 21-year-old Kirsten, and Robert, age 8, and Jessica and hus-band Tommy OsheaÂs son (and John McNallyÂs grandson) Clinton, age 6. ÂSo Robert is ClintonÂs uncle,ÂŽ the senior McNally says, and smiles and shakes his head. A trampoline, and a bicycle, and a boat, always there for Robert, are ready for Clinton whenever he comes by. John McNally met Janine on deck. He had come through a divorce, as he says, Âwith a lot of baggage, and two kids, who were 12 and 7. I was lookinÂ, but I didnÂt know HOW to do it, how to date or anything.ÂŽ He DID know how to sail, something he had rarely done during his first marriage, and the return to sailing, he says, marked another turning point in his life. ÂA friend of mine lives down the street,ÂŽ he says, Âand I was going out with him and his wife on their boat with another gal, this was in Â98, and Janine just got invited and she came down to the dock. It was funny, because I went home and I was tellinÂ my mom about Janine and how she had wanted to take wind-surfing lessons. She already knew how to sail. My Mom said, ÂYou idiot, she just wants to go out with you.Â So I called her up, and I called her ÂJeannette.ÂÂŽ The romance soon found its current. A year later they married, and they spent their honeymoon on a chartered 50-foot Beneteau in the Virgin Islands ... joined by the sailmakerÂs parents and brothers. ÂSheÂs a good sport,ÂŽ Mr. M cNally says of his wife. The family also embraced her. She teaches first grade, now, in Jupiter Farms Elemen-tary School, where Robert also goes to school, and enjoys the teaching and endures the paperwork. A maritime out-ing can be rejuvenating. So, her husband says, can a maritime competition. For Mr. McNally, as for many smallcraft sailors, racing is bracing. ÂItÂs not like weÂre racing them with racing sails, like serious racers,ÂŽ he says. ÂJust cruis-ing boat races. But itÂs a lot of fun.ÂŽ Competition is also, he says, the best way to learn. ÂYou could sail for 10 years and not learn as much as you can if you race in three or four races,ÂŽ he says, Âbecause youÂre sailing to a point. You have to trim the sails right. Even when I go out cruising, I want to sail with the sails trimmed right.ÂŽSAILMAKERFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOThe art of sailing, says John McNally, is about angles Â— plotting them, reading them.

It was the first offer in more than five months on this particular listing and it was a very good offer Â„ in fact the closing is sup-posed to take place next week. When I first listed the property, the owner (who also happens to be a rela-tive) had expectations of selling it within the first 30 days. I felt this was realistic given the fact that the neighborhood is very desirable, it was a fairly new home and the design of the home would appeal to most buyers. The home has four bed-rooms and 4 bathrooms with just under 4,000 square feet of living space. The outdoor area is like a resort; very large pool, water fountains, beautiful landscap-ing and outdoor summer kitchen. It was my relative Âs second home. She lived in it full time when it was first built, but moved up North permanently within the last month. When the home hit the market last year, I had several calls wanting to see the property. My relative was still living there with two large dogs and a cat. The home was decorated nicely, but her recent life-style change left her with some additional furnishings that did not match her dcor. The home was decorated in soft color pal-ettes with very clean lines. The additional pieces were very heavy and somewhat outdated, which covered up the cleanli-ness of the home and clashed with the other dcor. The very first showing that I had, the family walked in and out of the home in less than five minutes. They never even went outside to see how beautiful the outdoor area was. Later that evening I received feedback from their agent. He said their son had a severe animal allergy and they felt it would take too much renovation to remove the pet odor and dander from the home. I understood their concerns and talked to my relative about this. She was not pleased, but was very aware that the home had a strong pet odor. She worked during the day and allowed the pets to roam the house. Unfortunately, they were not trained as much as she liked and she would come home to some unwanted ÂpresentsÂŽ most of the time. I encouraged her to replace the carpets so the home was fresh and felt that would get rid of most of the odor. She did not want to do it at the time and felt that the new owner would replace the carpet with their own dcor. My next showing was the very next day. The family spent quite a bit of time in the home and the showing went well. They had been looking in the neighbor-hood for the past six months and liked the design of my relativeÂs home and the location. They came back for a second showing the same day. They were ready to purchase. Again, there was no offer and this family could not see past all of the Â clutterÂŽ in the home. They did not want to renovate or update the home and couldnÂt seem to visualize what the home would look like without all the additional furnish-ings. They ended up purchasing the same model with an inferior location down the street. These two scenarios seemed to take place each time I had a showing. And each of the respective showings were very strong. Again, I suggested that she replace the carpets and move some of the furnishings into storage so the home showed as it was originally decorated Â„ without the unpleasant odor. My relative was in and out of town at this point and did not want to be both-ered. She believed that the right person would come along and be able to see beyond those issues. After four months and several showings, my relative was getting settled in up North and I convinced her to do what I had suggested since she was not visit-ing as much as she thought. She agreed and I coordinated for the carpets to be replaced, the home to be repainted on the inside and for the furnishings to be moved to storage. Immediately following the changes, I did a mini market-ing campaign to the surround-ing neighborhoods and also advertised through my email marketing. Three clients who had previously been through the home called to come for a second showing. It took one week after the small changes for the home to go under contract at a very good price! It was very impor-tant for buyers to visualize what the home looked like with their own furnishings and freshly updated offering the Âmove inÂŽ condition that they were looking for. You donÂt have to move out all your furnishings, replace carpet, do renovations and get rid of your beloved pets prior to selling. What I am suggesting is when it comes to selling your home, always put your best foot forward, and look at the home from a buyerÂs perspective. De-clutt er the space, freshen up any areas that are worn and neutralize the home so it appeals to most buyers. Most important, make sure it is clean and tidy prior to each showing as pos-sible. This will always bring you a high-er price and a more confident buyer throughout the closing process. It may be a small expense up front, but I guarantee that you will sell your property in less time at a higher price.

Luxury sales have been particularly robust. This is great news for sellers, and buyers can still benefit from the overall recovery of the housing market. A couple, clients I have sold several homes to over the years, contacted me to ask me to connect with their son, Gordon, and daughter-in-law Tina. They were thrilled that they had finally made the decision to relocate to Palm Beach Gardens. Gordon and Tina had been visiting their parents in Palm Beach Gardens for the last five years during the holidays to get away from the cold weather in Con-necticut where they live. Gordon and Tina have a beautiful, high-end home they have shared with their three chil-dren for the past 15 years. Their kids are approaching college age and the feeling was unanimous for the entire family that they were ready to move to Florida. Gordon, Tina and their children have great memories of visiting their parents-grandparents in Palm Beach Gardens and wanted to focus their search on luxury homes in this area. We focused on viewing homes in gated golf communities in Palm Beach Gar-dens. Both Gordon and Tina enjoy golf and the kids occasionally enjoy playing with them as a family. It was important to them to feel a sense of community upon moving to the area, and they knew this would be easily achieved with a country club community. Since the inventory is limited in luxury homes, we discussed focusing on their top few priorities in what they wanted for their home. Their priorities were unobstructed views, natural light, a practical, open floor plan and interesting architectural design. I advised Gordon and Tina the position of a home on the property and the natural light that the interior of a home received has been known to improve resale value, so this was a great option to focus on. Focusing an unobstructed view was another criteria for Gordon and Tina. We discussed itÂs important to love what you see when you look outside each day. One of the things that Gordon and Tina enjoy most about their luxury home in Connecticut is the open floor plan as they often invited friends and family to enjoy their home with them. They planned on entertaining often, so we discussed that it would be important to choose a home which has enough space to maintain a clear separation between entertaining and private areas. Architectural uniqueness was another priority for Tina and Gordon. I advised them that great architecture will retain value over time. As Gordon and Tina began the search for luxury homes we recognized that there were limited opportunities. Shortly after a home came on the market with the criteria they were look-ing for it had an offer on it. Gordon and Tina quickly recognized that there are many luxury buyers in the market look-ing for the same criteria they were look-ing for. We spent three consecutive days looking at every luxury home which met the criteria on the market. I discussed with Gordon and Tina the importance of first choosing the community that fit their familyÂs needs and then focus on the home within that community. We were fortunate enough to locate a home with all of the aspects they were looking for. Gordon and Tina did not hesitate to make a strong offer on the property. They are happily living in a home in a country club community in Palm Beach Gardens. Gordon, Tina and their family regularly enjoy the amenities of their community. It happened to be the same community that their parents live in, where they created many holiday memories they enjoyed for years. Many experts in the industry report the good news of the housing recovery and it promises to get even better. The real estate industry has experienced many changes in the last few years, the positive news reflects the luxury homes are selling very well and there are many qualified buyers than in previous years. The demand for luxury homes in country club communities in Palm Beach Gardens and surrounding areas has been strong. Luxury properties are selling, with buyers competing for a small list of high-end homes. If you are considering purchasing a luxury home in the area and you locate the home that fits your family's needs, itÂs a great time to purchase you dream home now and moving forward into 2014.

Current Inventory in Units 2013 YTD A discovery by a research team led by Dr. Ryohei Yasuda at the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience in Jupiter has significantly advanced basic understand-ing of biochemical mechanisms associated with how memories are formed, according to a statement from Max Planck. The research focused on the communication between synapses and the nucleus of a neuron, specifically the mechanisms by which signaling initiated at synapses is transmitted into the nucleus to induce chemical changes. How that relates to memory formation may be better understood with some background. More than a century ago, scientists generally recognized that the number of neurons in the adult brain did not increase significantly with age. That gave neurobi-ologists good reason to believe that mem-ories were not formed by new neuron production, but rather by a strengthening of the connections between existing neu-rons to improve the effectiveness of their communication. The strength of two connected neural pathways is thought to result in the storage of information. This process of synaptic strengthening is known as long-term potentiation (LTP). LTP is one of several phenomena underlying synaptic plasticity, the abil-ity of chemical synapses to change their strength. Memories are thought to be created, or encoded, by modifications in synaptic strength. It is known that LTP and memory formation requires gene transcription at cell nucleus. Dr. Y asudaÂs team has been looking at the behaviors of proteins involved in syn-aptic plasticity within dendritic spines Â… small bristles on the surface of neurons that receive synaptic signals. There are roughly 10,000 spines on the dendritic branches of each neuron (and roughly 100 billion neurons in the adult brain). His teamÂs most surprising and unexpected finding, he said, was that induction of LTP in as few as three of these spines was sufficient to exert profound effects on activity of proteins that control gene transcription in the cell nucleus. The team also discovered that these spines needed to be distributed over at least two dendritic branches for this process to be triggered. The Science report was authored by Shenyu Zhai, Eugene D. Ark, Paula Parra-Bueno and Yasuda. Zhai and Ark are affil-iated with the Department of Neurobiol-ogy at Duke University Medical Center. Dr. Yasuda said this research project has been underway for four years. It began when he was also at Duke and was completed after he came to Max Planck. ÂThe initial data and our unexpected finding, resulted from almost the first experiment,ÂŽ he said in the statement. ÂBut it took us nearly four years to con-firm the results and understand the mechanisms involved.ÂŽ Q Max Planck research advances knowledge of triggers in memory formation

The first concert is Dec. 7. ÂMusic has always been a bond for my family,ÂŽ said Stephen Gebeloff, a clari-netist and saxophonist, whose father Norman and daughter Rachel also play in the band. ÂWe see the gift being passed down.ÂŽ The 2013-14 season marks the 50-yearoldÂs third with the band. Mr. Gebel-offÂs 76-year-old father, a multitalent on the clarinet, flute and saxophone, has gigged with the group for two years. Rachel, 13, a student at Independence Middle School in Jupiter, made her debut in October at the first concert series. ÂI introduced him to the band,ÂŽ Mr. Gebeloff said of Norman. ÂMy daugh-ter, sheÂs been hearing me play for two years now and auditioned this year. It brings a sense of pride to me for a lot of reasons.ÂŽ The MurraysÂ influence on the Symphonic Band of the Palm Beach dates back to 1983, when wife Chris, 48, then a senior at Jupiter Community High School, received one of the nonprofitItÂ’s a family affair at the Symphonic Band BY AMY WOODSSpecial to Florida WeeklySEE BAND, B3 X ItÂs Christmas 1183 in Chinon, France, and Henry II of England has gathered his family for the holiday. Of course, HenryÂs family comes directly from the history books in ÂThe Lion in Winter,ÂŽ the 1966 play by James Goldman. Attendees include HenryÂs wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine, whom he has kept imprisoned for 10 years, their three sons, Richard, Geoffrey and John, and King Philip II of France. But the holiday in question is something straight out of GoldmanÂs imagi-nation. And it is one that is inspiring a young talent, Pierre Tannous, who plays King Philip, known as Augustus. ÂYou know, I think with this material in particular, itÂs not written in a way thatÂs indicative of, say, 1,200 years ago, and so weÂre not having to deal with all these theesHistory and a musical Â“The Lion in WinterÂ” roars into Dramaworks Maltz looks to bright Â‘TomorrowÂ’ with Â‘AnnieÂ’She came to life during the Great Depression in Harold GrayÂs comic strip.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF DECEMBER 5-11, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSBeach exhibitionism makes a reluctant believerWhen IÂm not in a relationship, coupled people seem to be everywhere. IÂve been single for a long time now, and I canÂt make it through the day without running smack against some smugly lov-ing pair. At the grocery store, at the post office Â„ they are omnipresent in their canoodling. If I werenÂt already so cynical about l ove, all those couples would push me off the proverbial edge. Not that I blame them. During my own partnered stretches, IÂm the first to broad-cast the sweetness of being in a relation-ship. I like holding hands in public, and I enjoy making soft eyes across the table in a restaurant. I want people to know how lucky I feel. So why should I hold it against other couples for flaunting their good fortune? ItÂs just that sometimes I need a break. There are places and moments when I think, Can you please tone it down? For me that place is the beach. I like to take a walk every night around sunset. I troop out with my faded plastic bucket, the kind kids play with in the sand, and I pick up detritus from the vacation life: cigarettes butts, bottle caps, juice boxes Â„ all the trash people forget to throw away when theyÂre too busy having a good time. I walk head down, my eyes on the sand, scanning for garbage and clearing my head of the dayÂs worries. IÂm always amazed at how a little beach cleaning can make me feel so zen. When I head out on this nightly trek, I expect a fair amount of romantic showmanship. ItÂs the beach, after all. IÂve seen couples kissing as the sun set over the water and partners cuddled on beach blankets. IÂve witnessed vast quantities of portraits taken, men and women looking brightly at the camera so that their self-satisfaction can be broadcast not just to the near vicinity but their entire, far-flung social network. None of this I mind. What finally got to me happened the other night Â„ a couple engaged in a standing make-out session midway down the island. I think, a little kissing: fine. Some light groping: also fine. But full-on legs intertwined pelvic thrusting with hair pulling? Not on the beach at sunset, thank you very much. It was the kind of scene I hated to see Â„ yet still couldnÂt pull my eyes away from. The couple separated just as I neared, my plastic bucket banging against my leg, indignation shooting from me like sparks. At 100 yards I had assumed they were teenagers. Who else would be so heed-less? At 50 yards I thought they were in their mid-20s, steeped in all that heady romance that leads to marriage. But as I passed them I realized that they were older than I am by at least 20 years. Suddenly I had the thought: Well, why not? Love is so fleeting, its blessings so rare. If a passionate sensation should overcome us on the beach Â„ or at the post office or the grocery store Â„ why should anyone try to contain it? We should all be so lucky to have moments like those.

The clarinetist continues to leave a legacy by bringing her husband Jim, 50, and son Shaun, 17, to weekly rehearsals. ÂI just feel like I owe a lot to them because they did so much for me when I was in school,ÂŽ said Ms. Murray, who in addition to playing for the school band sat in with the adults. ÂIt helped my per-sonal musicianship a lot, and now I feel like I know so much band literature.ÂŽ She met Jim at the University of Florida Â„ they both marched in the Gator band Â„ and now the percussionist and their French-horn-playing son have joined Ms. Murray in her return to her rhythmic roots. ÂItÂs really neat being back in the band and playing,ÂŽ Ms. Murray said. ÂI missed that. When you sit inside of a music ensemble, just the sound waves just really move you.ÂŽ She said the three of them have grown closer because of their musical ties. ÂItÂs a great thing to be able to have something connecting you as fam-ily members,ÂŽ Ms. Murray said. ÂWhen your kids become teenagers, you want to have something in common with them. ItÂs fun going to rehearsals with Shaun and Jim and me.ÂŽ No one in the Symphonic Band of the Palm Beaches gets paid, and everybody covers his or her own expenses. The band channels the money it makes from tickets sales to educational scholarships and school grants. David Hinds, vice president of the 53-year-old nonprofit organization, said $180,000 in scholarships and $134,000 in grants have provided countless students with musical opportunities they might not have had. ÂMusic is another language,ÂŽ Mr. Hinds said. ÂItÂs a known fact that it def-initely helps you with math and several other subjects, yet the first thing that goes are what they consider the non-necessities, which are the arts.ÂŽ The Symphonic Band of the Palm Beaches has made it a mission to pro-mote cultural awareness, music educa-tion and personal growth in children by awarding scholarships and grants, as well as donating instruments Â„ 38 to date. Offering the community memo-rable, toe-tapping concerts at affordable prices is its other goal. ÂThis band is so popular,ÂŽ Mr. Hinds said. ÂOur tickets are reasonable and are for people that maybe canÂt afford the Kravis Center.ÂŽ Not only are audiences enthusiastic about the bandÂs 10-concert season, so are the players. ÂWe have people drive up from Weston for rehearsals and driving down from Port St. Lucie,ÂŽ Mr. Hinds said. ÂWe had two girls from Clewiston. For them to spend that kind of money on gas and time and everything, itÂs got to be a really rewarding experience for them to do that.ÂŽ The Symphonic Band of the Palm Beaches is included in the Extraordinary Charities of Palm Beach CountyÂs 2014 nonprofit directory. The published book highlights smaller nonprofit groups that have annual budgets below $3 million and often go unrecognized. ÂIt makes the thousands of hours of volunteer preparation, rehearsal and individual practice time by our board, band members and conductor all worth-while,ÂŽ Mr. Hinds said of the honor.

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF DECEMBER 5-11, 2013 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYand thous and all this heightened language that not many people under-stand,ÂŽ Mr. Tannous said. William Hayes, Dramawor ksÂ producing artistic director and the director of this show, agreed. ÂI think that Goldman, back in the Â60s when he wrote it, he used a more contemporary dialogue in order to make it more accessible to a modern audience and he does it effectively, and also in creating the dynamic between the husband and wife and siblings. ItÂs billed as a comedy and we approach it as a comic drama,ÂŽ Mr. Hayes said. But Mr. Hayes has been acting in and producing at Palm Beach Dramaworks for more than a decade. This is Mr. TannousÂ first role at Dramaworks, where he has worked three seasons as an assistant stage manager. Not to worry, though; heÂs is a sea-soned actor who has held roles at Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival, where he portrayed Ferdinand (ÂThe TempestÂŽ), Malcolm (ÂMacbethÂŽ) and Francis Flute (ÂA Midsummer NightÂs DreamÂŽ), and last summer, starred as Willie in the Arts Garage production of ÂCabaret Verboten.ÂŽ ÂThe obstacle, I guess, with this play is being able to travel this line between the drama and the comedy of this, and to make it funny, to let the audience know that theyÂre allowed to laugh dur-ing this, but let them know that itÂs still a very serious situation for the people in this play,ÂŽ he said. Philip is a man on a mission.ÂHe comes into this situation hoping to get one thing Âƒ this piece of land, and that his half-sister would marry HenryÂs son Richard,ÂŽ he said. But the play progresses.ÂIt becomes something else and you realize that PhilipÂs father, Louis, was treated very poorly by Henry, and it almost becomes like a bit of revenge when he comes into this place to get the land, but really to seek revenge for his father, who was so severely wronged by the king of England,ÂŽ Mr. Tannous said. ÂHeÂs cunning, heÂs smart, heÂs intelligent. He ends up play-ing everybody in the play Â„ all three sons and Henry.ÂŽ ItÂs meaty material. ÂItÂs different. ItÂs so different. IÂve done plays previously, and I like to call them fast-food plays because theyÂre just up and down. You rehearse it for two weeks, you perform it for two weekends, and thatÂs it. To know that thereÂs eight weeks at the end of this, where youÂre going to be evolving and working on a character with all these other people, it just gives an opportuni-ty to explore so many different avenues with so many talented people,ÂŽ he said. Dramaworks brings together a talented creative team. Besides Mr. Tannous, the cast includes stage veterans C. David John-son as Henry and Tod Randolph as Eleanor, as well as Katherine Amadeo, Justin Baldwin, Cliff Burgess and Chris Crawford. ÂI get juiced up when things are based on true historical characters because one of the aspect of directing I like most is the research,ÂŽ Mr. Hayes said. And learning about the people behind the characters. ÂThis dysfunctional family, what we do onstage is an understatement com-pared to how they really lived their lives. They needed major family thera-py,ÂŽ Mr. Hayes said. ÂEleanor of Aqui-taine was imprisoned for a total of 15 years, because when she and a couple of the other sons rose up against Henry, she was imprisoned. That was back in 1173 when she rose up against him. And of course, later in life, after Henry died, the brothers would rise up against each other. It was just a fascinating period to me.ÂŽ Eleanor has transcended time. While Ms. Randolph will portray her in the Dramaworks production, Katharine Hepburn portrayed her memorably in the screen version of ÂThe Lion in Winter.ÂŽ Rosemary Harris created the role on Broadway. Eleanor had been married to King Philip IIÂs father, King Louis, but the marriage was annulled after she bore him only daughters. ÂShe was maybe the first feminist, I donÂt know, but she could certainly hold court and stand up to any man. She had a reputation of being extreme-ly smart and elegant and beautiful and just strong-willed,ÂŽ Mr. Hayes said. ÂIn fact, King Louis just couldnÂt even deal with it. But she was also a very sexy and vibrant woman who would ride out on crusade with Louis and she just flirted with everybody she met. She knew how to use her sexuality to gain power.ÂŽ Mr. Hayes paused to remember that there was no Christmas gathering of the royal court in 1183, that this is a fictional account. At the core, it tran-scends more than 800 years to some-thing basic: ÂEach of these characters wants love and each of these characters feels rejected by somebody.ÂŽ Emotionally needy people? You canÂt get much more universal than that. Q Â“LIONÂ”From page 1 >>What: Â“AnnieÂ” >>When: Through Dec. 22 >>Where: Maltz Jupiter Theatre, 1001 E.

Her disposition seemingly is as sunny as AnnieÂs. ÂShe never looks on the bad side. SheÂs always finding a great way to put things, like when the homeless people are singing before ÂHooverville,Â they had newspapers for blankets and she didnÂt know what to say, then she thought, Âread in bed,Â so she always wants to put things on the bright side and doesnÂt want to feel bad about things,ÂŽ Miss Young said. The show is keeping her busy.But at age 10, she already is a veteran, having starred as Cindy-Lou Who in the national tour of ÂHow The Grinch Stole Christmas.ÂŽ ÂSome of the challenges are being able to memorize all the lines, but itÂs still really fun because you make a lot of friends,ÂŽ she said. ÂAnd for school, itÂs actually not that hard. Right now, IÂm using a booklet and my tutor in New York City is Skyping with me, and for ÂGrinchÂ they actually hired a tutor, so it was not that bad.ÂŽ And fortunately, she gets guidance from her co-stars. Ms. Lewis, who starred in the Maltz production of ÂHello, Dolly!,ÂŽ is nation-ally known for roles on the television series ÂNewsradioÂŽ and Â Three Sis-ters.ÂŽ She currently stars as Dr. Sonya on ÂHow I Met Your Mother.ÂŽ So how does the effervescent Ms. Lewis reconcile with the bitter Miss Hannigan? ÂYou know, I wondered about that. The kids are all the same height as me because IÂm so short, so thereÂs some-thing kind of comical about it, but we rehearsed a scene and my biggest fear was, ÂI donÂt want to scare these lovely little children.Â But we had a lot of laughs, didnÂt we?ÂŽ she said. Ms. Lewis gestured to Miss Young.ÂYesterday, I had to capture her, she was trying to escape as Annie, not the real you Â„ we love you in rehearsals. I had to take her and fling and toss her. I said, ÂYou do it and IÂll just act like IÂm throwing you,Â and she just flung herself across the room and I said, ÂAre you hurt?ÂÂŽ Both Ms. Lewis and Mr. Carl had thoughts on the life of a performer. ÂYou know, the one thing that IÂve always been struck by that I wish someone had pulled me aside and said was to enjoy it but also make sure that you cultivate your own life, your own inter-ests, your friends and your family and all that kind of stuff because thatÂs the stuff thatÂs going to get you through when the stuff of show business kind of falls away for awhile because itÂs always hills and valleys, hills and valleys. I was very driven, which I think is a wonder-ful, wonderful quality. You need that to be in this business and sort of have staying power in it,ÂŽ she said. She continued: ÂI wish I would have embraced all that other stuff too, and not been, ÂYeah, yeah, yeah, eye on the prize, because it, I think, it keeps you happier and healthier and I think it gives you a really good sort of jumping-off point when you get rejected in show business, when people are not so great Â„ all those kinds of things that do hap-pen sometimes. Then youÂre out on your own, so itÂs good to cultivate all that other stuff, which I wish someone had said that to me.ÂŽ Mr. Carl agreed.ÂI second that big time. ItÂs really important to have a real life as well as this. But the work ethic of kids in the business today...ÂŽ ÂOh, itÂs crazy,ÂŽ Ms. Lewis interjected. ÂWhen I was this age, I would have never been this focused,ÂŽ said Mr. Carl, who is making his Maltz debut. Ms. Lewis laughed.ÂI was going to the mall on the weekends when I was your age, and I would make my younger sister walk 10 feet behind me because my mom would make me take her, and IÂd be like, ÂYou canÂt pretend youÂre with me,ÂÂŽ she said. These kids have a real maturity onstage. ÂIÂm really impressed with the focus and the energy that the kids have in the show,ÂŽ Mr. Carl said. ÂWhen the adults came in and we came in together the other orphans had already been working for the weekend and they were so excited to show what they had learned musically at that first table read, and it was exciting to watch them being excited and for them to want to show off what they had learned. We have to step up to the plate and meet them.ÂŽ ÂThatÂs true,ÂŽ Ms. Lewis agreed. ÂTheyÂre really, really talented.ÂŽ But beyond talent, the show requires a certain look. Of course, Miss Young as Annie will sport a curly-locked wig. Ms. Lewis also will cover her shock of red hair for her role as Miss Hannigan. And Mr. Carl, who has appeared on Broadway in DisneyÂs ÂTarzan,ÂŽ the Lin-coln Center revival of ÂSouth PacificÂŽ and ÂMamma Mia,ÂŽ shaved his head for his role as Warbucks. But the character is so much more than a shiny dome and a suit. ÂI sort of got the impression that heÂs gruff and hard. But the more I have read the role, I realize itÂs not that heÂs gruff, thereÂs a reason why he became as successful as he is. He just is very focused, and I think that there is a difference between being gruff and focused,ÂŽ he said. ÂI think that it is interesting to play that man who slows down just enough to realize that heÂs got a heart that this little girl brings out in him and I think itÂs interesting to play and not play him cold. HeÂs not. HeÂs passionate. ThatÂs what took him from being as poor as Annie is to where he is today.ÂŽ And Mr. CarlÂs character ties in with that Jazz Age score. ÂI think that this score is so infectious. Every song has something that is indicative of the era it portrays. Certain songs are so iconic now. ÂTomorrowÂ is applicable to today, and ÂEasy Street.Â ÂLittle Girls,Â it just stops the show,ÂŽ he said. Also a show-stopper: That harridan, Miss Hannigan. ÂWhat is important to me in this production is to find the darkness of her. I donÂt think sheÂs a flashy, silly character. I think she is an alcoholic who is unhappy, and in that thereÂs a lot of humor you can find,ÂŽ Ms. Lewis said. ÂItÂs 1930. ItÂs a depression. ItÂs a dark, dark place she lives in and I want to make sure I root the reality of the character in that and define the humor out of it.ÂŽ ItÂs a bleak, but essential, role.ÂIÂm the antithesis of the joy and the light, and if IÂm joy and light too much, thereÂs no plot for her,ÂŽ she said. True enough.And if you believe AnnieÂs big song, the sunÂll come out tomorrow. This musical wouldnÂt have it any other way. Q Â“ANNIEÂ”From page 1LEWIS CARL COURTESY PHOTO C.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF DECEMBER 5-11, 2013 B5 CONTRACT BRIDGEAn anti-percentage play BY STEVE BECKERBridge is largely a game of percentages, but it is first and foremost a game of reasoning. Whenever possible, a player should try to improve on the cold math-ematical percentages by putting to use any extraneous information he might gain as the play progresses. If he does this regularly, he will occasionally dis-cover that the so-called percentage play is destined to lose, and that his only real chance is to adopt an anti-percentage play. For example, take this deal where South lost the first two club tricks and ruffed the third club. Declarer had to lose a diamond trick, so the contract hinged on not losing a trick to the king of hearts. Declarer knew that the correct percentage play in hearts, missing three to the king, was to lead the jack from dummy and finesse. This would offer a much better chance of avoiding a heart loser than simply playing the ace in the hope of catching the singleton king. But before committing himself to this line of play, South decided to collect a bit more information about the oppos-ing hands. So at trick four, he led the diamond deuce to the queen, and when this lost to East's ace, he realized he would have to abandon the normal per-centage play in trumps and instead pin his hopes on finding West with the sin-gleton king. This was because East had passed at his first turn and had already shown up with the A-Q of clubs and ace of diamonds. Had he also held the king of hearts, he would surely have opened the bidding. And so, after East returned a diamond at trick five, South won with the king and laid down the ace of hearts, felling West's king to score a well-deserved victory. The collateral information declarer collected during the early play had changed the percentage play into a non-percentage play. Q

YesThere Âs a reason girls become enamored with Disney princesses. ItÂs because Disney is better than everyone else in the world at creating heroines who get to do cool things and sing wonderful songs and save magical kingdoms. The princesses are fantasies that couldnÂt possibly exist, of course, but the idea that they can be real is too intoxicating and effervescent for little girls to know what to do with themselves. ÂFrozenÂŽ now wonderfully adds to the list of Disney heroines, and this time there are two princesses your daughters will want to be next Halloween. In the kingdom of Arendelle, Princess Elsa (Idina Menzel) is born with the magical power to create snow and ice. However, when sheÂs unable to control it and nearly kills her sister Anna (Kristen Bell), Elsa is forced to live in solitude. Years later, after AnnaÂs mind is wiped clean of nearly dying at her sisterÂs hand, Elsa loses control of her abilities when sheÂs crowned queen. Snow, ice and frost encap-sulate Arendelle during its other-wise hot and busy summer, leaving Anna to venture into the frozen forest to find her sister and talk some sense into her. Unprepared for the cold, Anna is helped along by an ice salesman named Kristoff (Jonathan Goff), his trusty reindeer, Sven, and a silly snow-man named Olaf (Josh Gad). It is a compliment to write that this movie could easily be adapted into a Broadway musical and lose little of its appeal. It features original songs from husband-and-wife songwriters Kris-ten Anderson-Lopez and Tony Award-winner Robert Lopez (ÂAvenue QÂŽ).These numbers, in a word, are splendid. Ms. MenzelÂs ÂLet It Go,ÂŽ sung when Elsa abdicates her throne to live in the mountains, is rousing, beautiful, emo-tional and chilling (pun intended), a true showstopper in a film full of qual-ity work. Other notable songs are ÂFor The First Time In ForeverÂŽ sung by Ms. Menzel and Ms. Bell, and ÂIn Summer,ÂŽ in which snowman Olaf cutely pon-tificates about how much heÂd love the summer. Writer/directors Chris Buck and Jennifer LeeÂs touching story also fea-tures ample laughs and exciting action sequences full of imagination. WhatÂs more, the sweeping, colorful visuals are cool and crisp in 3D. Whether itÂs the interior of the castle, high up in the snowy mountains or the glistening ice, the production design is lush and gor-geous and the animation is superb. Pixar might be considered the reigning king of cartoons, but the folks at Dis-ney Animation are not far behind. Given that the studio created feature-length animation and animated musicals with ÂSnow White and the Seven DwarfsÂŽ in 1937, its enduring legacy and influence is notable. Recently, ÂTangledÂŽ (2010) was absolutely fantastic, and ÂWreck-It-RalphÂŽ (2012) was a box office smash; now ÂFrozenÂŽ is the best animated film of its year, meaning the studio doesnÂt look to be slowing down anytime soon. And we the audience, gratefully, get to enjoy every moment. Q LATEST FILMSÂ‘FrozenÂ’ i t s J t s dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com CAPSULESHomefront ++ (Jason Statham, James Franco, Winona Ryder) Looking to get away from his law enforcement career, former DEA agent Phil Broker (Mr. Statham) retreats to a small Louisiana town, only to find trouble with an ambitious local drug dealer (Mr. Franco). ItÂs a by-the-book action flick that gets more boring as each of its 100 minutes passes. Rated R.Nebraska +++ (Bruce Dern, Will Forte, June Squibb) Old and cantankerous Woody (Mr. Dern) and his son David (Mr. Forte) travel from Montana to Nebraska to claim a million dollar sweepstakes prize Woody received in the mail. Although there are strong performances in this latest film from Alexander Payne (ÂSidewaysÂŽ), it lacks the sharp wit and originality of his other work. Still, itÂs a solid effort. Rated R.The Hunger Games: Catching Fire +++ (Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson) Katniss (Ms. Lawrence) and Peeta (Mr. Hutcherson) must keep their faux romance alive during a victory tour or face extermination from President Snow (Donald Sutherland). Solid visuals, exotic costumes, and a story thatÂs nicely building toward something greater make this a worthy sequel to ÂThe Hunger GamesÂŽ (2012). Rated PG-13. Q

Of course, anyone who has spent more than five minutes around a child knows they can be hard to please, which makes finding a gift thatÂs both entertaining and educa-tional a tall order. Considering these uncertain economic times, many parents are looking for gift ideas for kids this year that also help teach a lesson or two about savings. Here are five financial gifts for children that will both develop their financial literacy and keep them amused. An awesome piggy bank Saving money is the foundation to developing positive financial behaviors, but it can be a real struggle to convince your kids of that fact. A great way to encourage children to save their money is by giving them an awesome ÂpiggyÂŽ bank to keep it in. But donÂt worry, gone are the days of boring, ceramic farm ani-mals Â„ now you can find banks shaped like arcade games, robots Â„ even Darth Vader. And we all know thereÂs nothing cooler than Darth Vader. Math Â‘video gamesÂ’ ÂGrand Theft Auto 5ÂŽ may be the game title of choice this Christmas, but you would probably rather improve your kidsÂ financial literacy than their criminal history. There are many educa-tional tools on the market that take the form of video games, such as LeapfrogÂs Leapster Â„ a hugely popular and highly rated handheld gaming device for kids age 4 through 9. Like hiding zucchini in your delicious banana nut muf-fins, thereÂs noth-ing more satis-fying than tricking your kids into enjoying some-thing thatÂs Â„ yuck Â„ actu-ally good for them. Stock in a kid-friendly firm More likely appreciated by somewhat older children, buying stock as a gift is a great option for the young entrepreneur in your life. Choose a company such as Disney, Coca-Cola, or if youÂre feel-ing generous, Apple, and buy stock in a custodial account for the child. You can buy colorful, single-share stock certificates in some 200 companies Â„ including Disney, Build-a-Bear, GameStop, Harley-Davidson, McDonaldÂs, Nike and Nintendo Â„ at OneShare (www.oneshare. com).You can tell the child on your gift list that they now own a piece of that company, which is almost as cool as the fact that the investment could be worth a whole lot more by the time theyÂre an adult. Sure beats a savings bond from Grandma.Cold, hard cash ItÂs hard to go wrong offering a crisp, green bill as a gift, but donÂt pass on the opportunity to instill the all-important value-of-a-dollar lesson. When giving physical money, itÂs best to have a sav-ings goal associated with the gift Â„ such as offering $40 specifically toward the purchase of a new bicycle. In other words, donÂt just hand over the money and expect the kid whoÂs receiving it to put it to good use without some guid-ance. Their first wallet Children love it when theyÂre treated like mini-adults, and nothing says Âbig kidÂŽ like owning a wallet. Depending on the childÂs age, you can either give a toy wallet, or a real one to use daily. Either way, kids soon will learn that a wallet is even more fun to own when thereÂs actually some money inside. Financial gifts for children donÂt have to be dull Â„ with the above gift ideas, entertainment and saving money can go hand in hand. Q

If you were caught celebrating, you would be fined five shillings. Q St. Nicholas is actually a historical figure, although the name was spelled dif-ferently. St. Nikolaus was the bishop of Myra in Asia Minor, and he died on Dec. 6, 343. In different regions of the world he is known as Klaus, Nickel, Snnerklas, Seneklos, Pelznickel, Knecht Ruprecht, Weihnachtsmann and Christkindl. Sometimes he travels on foot, and sometimes he Âs shown riding a white horse, a reindeer, a mule or even a goat. Q In 1712, Cotton Mather said, ÂThe Feast of ChristÂs Nativity is spent in Rev-eling, Dicing, Carding, Masking, and in Licentious Liberty ... by Mad Mirth, by long Eating, by hard Drinking, by lewd Gaming, by rude Reveling.ÂŽ DoesnÂt sound much like todayÂs celebrations, does it? Q If you think that Christmas has only recently become a nightmare of consumerism, consider that as early as the mid-1820s, Santa Claus was being employed to sell Christmas goods.Q Clement Clarke Moore, the author of ÂA Visit From St. NicholasÂŽ (more popu-larly known as ÂThe Night Before ChristmasÂŽ), was born during the American Revolu-tion and died during the Civil War.Q The modern image of Santa Claus was invented by American cartoonist Thomas Nast in the late 1800s. Until his car-toons were published at the end of the 19th century, no one really pictured Santa as a fat, jolly old man with white hair. Q The first image of a Christmas tree to be printed in the United States appeared in Boston in 1836. It was an illustration to a book written by a German immigrant. Q There is no Biblical or historical reason to place the birth of Jesus on Dec. 25. It was only in the fourth century that the church officially decided to observe Christmas on Dec. 25. Q Strange but true BY SAMANTHA WEAVERSpecial to Florida Weekly 8 days of Hanukkah have rare companion BY AVIVA YAFFASpecial to Florida WeeklyAn extremely rare convergence of the Hebrew and Gregorian calendars will result in the first full day of Hanukkah falling on Thanksgiving Day this year for the first time ever Â„ and the last time for another 75,000 years, experts say. The event even has its own trademarked term, ÂThanksgivukkah.ÂŽ The eight-day holiday of Hanukkah, or Festival of Lights, started this year at sundown on Nov. 27. While Thanksgiving officially has been around for 150 years, Hanukkah marks an event more than 2,000 years old, when the Jewish people rose up against their Assyrian conquerors in the first known successful rebellion against tyranny. When the Jews reclaimed the temple in Jerusalem, they rededicated it by lighting the lamp that hangs over the ark holding the Torah Â„ the sacred scroll Â„ which must be kept lit at all times. However, only one dayÂs oil was found, and it would take eight days for more to arrive. But, miracu-lously, that one-day supply of oil burned for all eight days. Hanukkah starts with the lighting of one candle (representing an oil lamp) in a spe-cial candelabra called a Menorah. Another candle, called the ÂshamusÂŽ (said to repre-sent the LordÂs presence), is also lit. One more candle is added each evening until all eight, and the shamus, are alight. Hanukkah is a family holiday. Gifts are given on each day, usually to the children. Special olive oil-based foods are served. In recent years, a growing number of families have dedicated the celebration to a ÂMake the World BetterÂŽ theme, based on the Talmudic teaching that God deliberately created an imperfect world so that every human being could later help move it toward perfection. Children are encour-aged to join their parents by donating their ÂHanukkah geltÂŽ (holiday money) gifts to causes that further this goal, for example, by making donations to groups that fight hunger and support education and health services. Some Jews in North America and Israel have taken up environmental concerns in relation to HanukkahÂs Âmiracle of the oil,ÂŽ emphasizing reflection on energy conser-vation and energy independence. An exam-ple of this is the Coalition on the Environ-ment and Jewish LifeÂs renewable energy campaign. Donations also can be made to environmental groups such as the Sierra Club, the World Wildlife Fund or the Jew-ish National FundÂs tree-planting program. (After all, an environmentally healthy world is automatically a better one.) Finally, on the eighth day, many families invite friends and neighbors from other religious or ethnic groups to a dinner to celebrate our common aspiration for peace and freedom for all. Q

Expires 12/19/13 THEATER REVIEW When I grew up in a suburb of New York City, my parents insisted that I would not live that close to Manhattan and not take in its iconic landmarks: the Statue of Liberty, the Natural History Museum, FAO Schwartz. But the one world-famous landmark we never vis-ited, being Jewish, was the ÂRadio City Christmas Spectacular.ÂŽ Thanks to the Kravis on Broadway series, I can cross that off my bucket list and report that it is, unlike much in life, precisely what its reputation promises. Start with spectacular. Nearly 40 people on stage tapping, swirling or gracefully gesticulating while croon-ing to tunes played by a lush if not live orchestra through 12 scenes. Of course, the stars are the longlimbed and lovely Rockettes whose syn-chronized terpsichorean numbers are as crisp as an Arctic wind whether they are performing the 80-year-old clas-sic ÂMarch of the Wooden Soldier Âs or percussively snapping out ÂThe Twelve Days of Christmas.ÂŽ The Manhattan version on Radio City Music HallÂs massive stage holds 36 dancers; on the road, itÂs 18, but they deliver a pretty impressive sight them-selves whether theyÂre playing SantaÂs reindeer in the opening or living tinsel in the finale with costumes containing 3,000 crystals. If youÂre just not feeling the seasonÂs spirit yourself, the best way to see this is with a kid. Bring your own or borrow one from next door or just sit within a few feet of somebody elseÂs. Their delight is infectious as they shriek or gasp at each new tableau. They clap along to the music when prompted to by the characters on stage Â„ and some-times even without prompting. One of the surprises for the Scrooges is that while the whole thing is as G-rat-ed as a Pixar cartoon, it fortunately is missing that manuf actured b uttonpushing manipulative feel of nearly every sucrose-drenched Disney product in the last quarter-century. ItÂs all very show-bizzy and polished, but it never feels like someone is trying to sell you something, although there is a gift store in the lobby. A warm and genuine aura pervades it all, reminiscent of creamy tasty eggnog without the rum. If the Rockettes are the headliners, a case can be made that the real star is the 50-foot LED screen that provides an animated ever-morphing series of seemingly 3D photorealistic backdrops that amp up the spectacular quotient a few hundred points. When Santa and his reindeer fly into the air, we follow them in to the clouds. Later massive tree ornaments float by and change colors like the largest screensaver of all time. But the most astounding set piece is the first act closer in which the live Rockettes board a mock-up of a New York City double-decker tour bus and take a night-time tour from Radio City, around Rockefeller Center and ending in Times Square (complete with product placements ads for Chase and New York Life). The viewpoint of the screen is timed with the turns of the bus on stage, giving a surprisingly convincing and enchanting travelogue for the audi-ence. If we were on SantaÂs knee, we might pass on the Red Ryder BB gun and ask for a live orchestra, but thatÂs carping. The quality of the sound here is superb. The evening moves briskly, rarely holding for more than a few seconds of applause. The showÂs ADD take on The Nutcracker is delightful although the two-act ballet is cut to a seven-minute TchaikovskyÂs Greatest Hits version. If youÂve seen the show before, this 2013 edition is mixture of old reliable numbers dusted off and updated plus several new ones. A devout Christian might begin to wonder whose holiday this is because the first 10 numbers are about as secular as can be, but the show ends with an unabashedly spiritual Living Nativity tableau, plus a triumphant finale of ÂJoy To The World,ÂŽ although it starts with a disco beat. The whole endeavor is a fresh and charming way to celebrate the holiday. ÂRadio City Christmas SpectacularÂŽ runs through Dec. 8 at the Kravis Cen-ter, 701 Okeechobee Blvd. Tickets $35-$78. call 832-7469 or 800-572-8471.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF DECEMBER 5-11, 2013 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19The Dish: Thai Basil Sauce with chicken The Place: Siam Square Thai Cuisine & Sushi Bar, 12100 U.S. Highway 1, Suites F&G, North Palm Beach; 626-8218 or siamsquarekitchen.com The Price: $7.95 lunch, $11.95 dinner The Details: We love Thai food. Its exquisite blend of sweet and sour and hot and mild just tantalizes the palate. So itÂs nice when we have another option for Thai cuisine. Siam SquareÂs version of a favorite, Thai Basil Sauce, offers up a nice rendi-tion of the dish. Tender chicken is sauted with a mix of sweet basil, chilies, crushed garlic, scallions and bell peppers that is just intoxicating Â„ the basil scent greets the nose long before the plate arrives at the table. At lunch, itÂs served with a wonderful, light chicken and rice soup and accompanied by a spring roll. Also tasty: A green curry that packed some serious heat and the melt-in-your-mouth soft-shell crab. WeÂre hungry just thinking about it. Q Â„ Sc ott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Rick Mace whetted his appetite for fine ingredients during a childhood on a hundred-acre farm in Ohio that involved gardening, hunting, fishing and, yes, farming. That love of quality ingredients and cooking has served him well, and itÂs something that informs his cooking at Caf Boulud, where he now is executive chef. Family helped cultivate that love.ÂI was in my motherÂs and grandmotherÂs kitchen,ÂŽ he said. ÂWe lived out in the country and it was typical to cook at home and take advantage of the familyÂs vegetable garden.ÂŽ ItÂs almost a wonder he wasnÂt inspired to bake. ÂOne grandmother was a baker and she would bake pies and sell them at an antique auction they had in the barn,ÂŽ he said. ÂLater, I spent time in the kitch-en with my father when he was single.ÂŽ He studied at New England Culinary Institute, where he earned a degree in culinary arts. After he finished school, he accepted positions in kitchens at such destina-tions as ButlerÂs Restaurant at The Inn at Essex in Vermont and San DiegoÂs Barona Valley Resort. In 2007, Mr. Mace joined Chef Daniel BouludÂs restaurant group as executive sous chef at Daniel Boulud Brasserie at The Wynn Resort Las Vegas. He left the Brasserie in 2010 to become execu-tive chef at the RT Lodge in Maryville, Tenn. This summer, he joined Caf Boulud after executive chef Jim Leiken left to spend more time with his family. We caught up with Mr. Mace between the lunch and dinner rushes at Boulud, where he was adapting to the Florida growing season, which begins in fall, while growing seasons in the rest of the country end. ÂItÂs the inverse of everything that IÂve ever known. ItÂs a lot of fun, but at the same time itÂs kind of inspiring,ÂŽ he said. ÂIn the past week and a half, weÂve gotten heirloom tomatoes from Palm Beach County. IÂm from the Midwest, these are things that were in their peak in summer.ÂŽ But itÂs not just the vegetables that inspire him. ÂIÂm getting to see and work through all the local fish and shellfish,ÂŽ includ-ing stone crabs and spiny lobster, he said. ÂBlack fin tuna Â„ itÂs really beauti-ful stuff.ÂŽ The area also is not too cosmopolitan for this chef, who is a country boy at heart. ÂWhen we got the call this summer from the Dinex Group (parent company of Caf Boulud), it was something that we thought about and we knew the type of experience that was in the past and that nothing but positive would come from it,ÂŽ he said. He and his wife found a house in the south end of West Palm Beach. ÂWe relocated here and got the oldest one enrolled in school and I started work,ÂŽ he said. ÂAnd it seems like every-thing is fallen into place.ÂŽ Even at Caf Boulud.ÂHere in the caf, the menu itself has a framework. What we do is what makes sense, whatÂs in season and what complements the other,ÂŽ he said. That menu changes gradually.ÂWe donÂt necessarily do changes in a drastic sort of way. It tends to be a very organic dialogue,ÂŽ he said. ÂWe follow the rhythm of the four seasons and the changes we see here. Âƒ ItÂs a very fun process because everything is evolving.ÂŽ Name: Rick Mace Age: 34 Original Hometown: Spencer, Ohio Restaurant: Caf Boulud, The Brazilian Court Hotel, 301 Australian Ave., Palm Beach; 655-6060 or cafeboulud.com Mission: Speaking for the restaurant, weÂre here to really celebrate the cui-sine of Daniel Boulud and everything he has taught us in the kitchen. For myself personally, the mantra that keeps me going from day to day is to be reverent of the tradition and the roots of cuisine. Cuisine: Continental with a twist Training: Degree in culinary arts at New England Culinary Institute WhatÂs your footwear of choice in the kitchen? IÂve always worn clogs Â„ Sanita clogs. TheyÂre very durable and they have the heel and that is good for your lower back. I work a lot of hours standing up and I always feel pretty good standing up at the end of the day, so IÂll give them an endorsement. Culinary pleasure: I love home cooking. But for me, the best things are comfort foods Â„ fried chicken, meat loaf, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese. TheyÂre inherently bad for you but IÂd never quit. What advice would you give someone who wants to be a restaurateur or chef? The main thing in this business is you really have to bear in mind that itÂs a long career and you have to become a professional based on achievements. ThereÂs a lot of attention on chefs and restaurants and dining in general. ItÂs a very complicated busi-ness. ThereÂs a lot to learn. I learn every day. ItÂs just one of those things. Any good cook who has to start out in the business has to master the basics, then I donÂt feel thereÂs a destination in cook-ing; itÂs more an expression of where you are right now.
