WHEN YOU THINK FLORIDA, YOU SEE PALM trees. Ben Bolusky has pegged the palm as Floridas icon. He cannot picture a coastal resort, seafood shack or theme park without the silhouette of a palm tree being instantly there. The CEO of the Florida Nursery, Grower & Landscape Association, Mr. Bolusky has numbers to back up his praise. Floridas nursery growers sold $406 million worth of palm trees in 2010 to landscape and retail businesses. Palms represented nearly 10 percent of the $4 billion in flower, plant and tree sales by growers in Florida that year,Ž he says, citing an economic impact study by the University of Florida. But those numbers do not account for the sales of palm tree collectors, men like Greg Sillcocks, who spend their days chasing down trees.

The centerpiece of holiday-inspired productions is often the food we make and share with others. The preparations begin weeks in advance and require ingredients only justified because our biggest joy comes but once a year. We use flour, cheese, butter, cream, sugar and eggs with abandon. Everyone has his or her own list of must-haves that go into an extended holiday menu. Diet-ing is the consequence of sinning might-ily, and, by the austerity of our New Years pantry, we do now heartily repent; but, aaah, it was fun while it lasted. Food occupies an important place in the cultural traditions of all people. However, it takes a special kind of per-son to appreciate how food and culinary traditions are a means to understand who we are and where we come from. John Egerton was such a man, a Southern writer who broke the bread of reconciliationŽ by tapping the rich-ness of the Southern cuisine and culture. He was one of the notables who passed away in 2013 at the age of 78, leaving behind a remarkable legacy. Said The New York Times obituary,  ƒhe used the written word, humility, and ultimately the power of the southern table to champion racial reconciliation and lead a new generation of cooks to look beyond clichs and divisions to understand the region.Ž (Note to Paula Deen: Listen up.) Egerton, a distinguished author and journalist, founded with others, the Southern Foodways Alliance at the Uni-versity of Mississippi. The Alliance celebrates the diverse food cultures of an American South in order to set a common table where black and white, rich and poor „ all who gather „ may consider our history and our future in a spirit of reconciliation.Ž The Times observed that Egerton once said the Souths contradictions explain how it is some of the nations finest writers come from a region that also has the highest number of illiter-ates. Contradictions were, to Egerton, like the Souths bread to its b utter. They are a recurring theme in the regions social and economic history and they are still present: to wit, a Southerner smart enough to become a duck-calling, millionaire celebrity but whose igno-rance and bigotry communicate such on a grand scale he is otherwise as dumb as a fence post. A grateful nation watches on because, apparently, who doesnt love a blasphe-mous, anti-intellectual redneck as long as he or she is not your neighbor? All the more reason why Egerton and his colleagues were ahead of their time in valuing the role of food in setting a table big enough to accommodate all who share in its diverse pleasures. For the Alliance, the breaking of bread together is more than an opportunity for a shared meal in the community of oth-ers. Its a time for estranged Southern kin to break new ground with unprec-edented conversations:  We tell honest and sometimes difficult stories about our region. We embrace Southern history, the realities of the Southern present, and the opportunities for Southern futures. In other words, we dont flinch from talking about race, class, religion, gen-der, and all the other biggies.Ž The Alliance also does not take itself too seriously, admitting on its web site to having once constructed a bacon tree, draped with slices of cured pork belly.Ž Egerton was right: Southern food and culture invite healing revelations among those who share the bond of place but remain as strangers to one another. My own dinner table provided such an experience. Years ago, an African-American woman came to visit me in my home in Kentucky. My husband and I lived in an old 14-room mansion in the Bluegrass that looked very much like Scarletts battered Tara in Gone with the Wind.Ž My dad was visiting at the time and offered to prepare the evening meal. A native of South Carolina, he was a superb country cook, planted an enormous gar-den, and hunted and fished to augment his take-home from Winn-Dixie. Never having socialized with my colleague outside the office, I was self-con-scious about the contradiction in hosting a Hilton Head descendant of slaves in an antebellum home that slaves undoubt-edly built. The intersection of our disparate lives was a contradiction, too, but the Souths rampant discrimination against blacks and women were the warp and weave of a singular cloth we shared. She made no comment on arrival at the pillared mansion. Settled in and introductions made, Dad retreated to the kitchen to serve up our plates. The menu? Stewed pork neck bones with white rice and gravy; collard greens and ham hocks; sliced, ruby-ripe toma-toes; homemade chow-chow; and a hot, iron skillet full of golden, b utt ermilk cornbread. She took one look at this fine spread, smiled, as if seeing me for the first time, and said, Now I know who you are and where youre from.Ž And she was exactly right.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 9-15, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYCongress to the unemployed: Eat confetti Is this really how we want to start the new year, by denying unemployment benefits to more than a million Ameri-cans who have lost their jobs? The bipartisan budget agreement passed by Congress and signed by President Barack Obama protects military spend-ing, but promises to throw the most des-perate in our economy into increased financial hardship, thrusting hundreds of thousands of families beneath the poverty line. The long-term unemploy-ment rate is at the highest it has been since World War II, while the percent-age of those receiving the benefits is at its historic low. Meanwhile, Wall Street bankers are popping the corks, celebrat-ing a banner year for the stock market. As brokers await their bonuses, many more of the unemployed will head for the breadlines. This is the wrong thing to happen at the wrong time for our economy,Ž Imara Jones told me. He is the economic justice contributor for, and served in the Clinton White House, where he worked on international trade policy. Jobless benefits are actually stimulative to the economy,Ž he said. Every $1 we provide to someone of unemployment benefits yields $1.60 in economic activity. And thats why the loss of these benefits is going to rob our economy of $41 billion.Ž People living on the edge financially spend what they have to get by. Those in the top echelons of our economy, the top 1 percent, can take their income and hold on to it, or stash it away into an offshore account. The unemployment-insurance program traditionally granted 26 weeks of replacement pay for workers who lost their jobs through no fault of their own. The extended benefits, signed into law by President George W. Bush, lengthened the time period to up to 99 weeks. Ben-efits average just $300 a week. According to The Washington Post, the average job search lasts 35 weeks, so the current 26-week benefit will create added stress on families already struggling. Congress could renew the extended benefits. Sen. Jack Reed, a Democrat of Rhode Island, and Sen. Dean Heller, a Republican of Nevada, have put forth a bill that would preserve the extended benefits for three months. Heller said in a press release: Providing a safety net for those in need is one of the most important functions of the federal gov-ernment. As Nevadas unemployment rate continues to top the charts nation-wide, many families and individuals back home do not know how they are going to meet their basic needs.Ž Although this proposal is bipartisan, it is expected to be blocked by Republi-cans when it comes to a procedural vote around Jan. 6, unless five more GOP senators can be convinced to support it. Even if it passes the Senate, the bill would still face a House of Representa-tives controlled by Republicans who are generally hostile to any extension. On the other end of the economy, a year-end stock-market rally is expected to boost the massive bonuses Wall Street is preparing to hand out. The largest Wall Street firms have reportedly set aside more than $91 billion for year-end bonuses. In response, an activist group called The Other 98% has launched a petition calling on employees of Chase, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Bank of America to donate their bonuses to the 10 million Americans displaced by the housing crisis. Alexis Goldstein worked for years on Wall Street, and now is the communica-tions director for The Other 98%. She told us on the Democracy Now!Ž news hour, Wall Street could take $60 billion out of their bonuses and help ... fund something called the National Housing Trust Fund for two years. Its a program that, if funded at $30 billion for 10 years, could end homelessness in America.Ž She points out the bonuses are essen-tially publicly financed because Wall Street banks obtain funds from the Fed-eral Reserve at very low rates. These banks also can afford huge bonuses, she says, because they continue to commit crimes that are very profitable.Ž Gold-stein noted two criminal settlements made by JPMorgan Chase, one for $13 billion for mortgage fraud, and another for $300 million for manipulating elec-tricity rates in California. Inequality entered mainstream public discourse through the activism of Occupy Wall Street. The cold, economic reality of it is hitting more homes this week, as unemployment benefits expire. Congress can, and should, renew them. Whether it does depends on people who care speaking out. Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the co-author of The Silenced Majority,Ž a New York Times best-seller. OPINIONA year of shamelessness All things considered, it was a year without shame. It was the year that Miley Cyrus French-kissed a sledgehammer in the music video for her song Wreck-ing Ball,Ž and cavorted naked on said wrecking ball. The former Disney star popularized the act of twerking in a performance at the MTV Video Music Awards that was so luridly infantile, it wasnt outrageous so much as pathetic. Yet it worked. Cyrus made us yearn for the good taste and restraint of the era of Lady Gaga, not to mention the golden age of classic Britney Spears. It was the year the president of the United States posed in a selfie with other foreign leaders at a memorial ser-vice for Nelson Mandela. He evidently had a grand time, but made us nostalgic for the period before our presidents posed in selfies with other heads of state, i.e., the long stretch of American history ending on Dec. 9, 2013. It was the year Anthony Weiner admitted in the midst of his New York City mayoral campaign that he had con-tinued to sext after resigning from Con-gress for sexting. Under the delightfully absurd alias Carlos Danger,Ž he had sent pictures of his private parts to a 22-year-old woman, whose notoriety instantly launched her career in adult film and as a spokesmodel for an adul-tery-facilitating website. Weiner made us fondly recall the self-effacing mod-esty of past New York City politicians like Ed Koch and Rudy Giuliani. It was the year that Toronto Mayor Rob Ford denied smoking crack, before admitting smoking crack „ probably in one of my drunken stupors.Ž The good mayor made us miss the decorum and straightforwardness of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. It was the year Dennis Rodman nominated himself as goodwill ambassador to North Korea, touchingly pronouncing himself Kim Jong Uns friend for life.Ž He excused the dictators brutal rule by explaining that the Supreme Leader is only 28 years old. The Worm,Ž as the former basketball player is known, made Jane Fondas infamous visit to North Vietnam in 1972 seem an effec-tive, well-calibrated act of international diplomacy in comparison. It was the year Lance Armstrong confessed to cheating in every single one of his Tour de France victories. Arm-strong made us miss the sportsmanship of Rosie Ruiz, who won the Boston Marathon years ago in record time by neglecting to run the entire course. It was the year that New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez alleged a vast conspiracy encompassing most of Major League Baseball to bust him for using performance-enhancing drugs „ again. The third baseman leads the league in misplaced sense of victimhood. Rodri-guez made us long for the guilelessness of Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa. It was the year something truly outlandish happened on The Real House-wives of Somewhere or Other.Ž It was the year Mob WivesŽ got crazy. It was the year that 16 and PregnantŽ descend-ed into moral chaos. They all made us remember a time when Jersey ShoreŽ represented a more decorous, elevated form of reality television. So good riddance to a year of shamelessness. It is sure never to be excelled „ except by 2014.

Plan ahead and be considerate BY KIM CAMPBELL THORTONUniversal UclickMany of us travel during the holidays to visit family or to experience the beauty of a celebration in a favorite place. We did both over the Christmas holiday, packing up the dogs for a road trip to Santa Fe, N.M., for the Yule fes-tivities, followed by a visit with family in Magdalena.Dogs are part of my family, but bringing them along requires a good bit of packing and preparation, not to mention higher than normal levels of supervision. Our 6-year-old cavalier, Harper, is an experi-enced traveler who took her first plane ride when she was just 6 months old, but senior dog Gemma and foster dog Kibo were unknown quantities as far as staying in hotels or other peoples homes. Im happy to say that they conducted themselves respectably during their stays in three different hotels, four different rooms, and visits to two different homes, including one with other dogs. There was a close call in a hotel hallway and in one of the homes, but a sharp eye and quick responses ensured that we didnt have any potty accidents to clean up along the way. From 20 years of traveling with dogs, here are my best tips on having a success-ful trip at any time of year.Q Reserve a room early at a petfriendly hotel, especially if you are vis-iting a tourist destination such as Santa Fe. The streets were crowded with visitors, and we werent the only ones with dogs. Confirm that the room is pet-friendly a few weeks beforehand. Q If youre driving to your destination, fill a gallon jug with water from home and mix it with the tap water at the places you visit. Even though the water is treated, different areas have different bugsŽ in the system, and your dog will be less likely to have stomach upset from the change. Q Some dogs suffer motion sickness. If yours is one of them, ask your vet-erinarian about Cerenia to prevent nau-sea and vomiting. Give it with a small amount of food half an hour to an hour before you hit the road. Q Make feeding time easy, especially if you feed an unusual brand or a raw diet. Before you leave, contact pet-sup-ply stores at your destination to make sure they carry your dogs food in case you run out. We pack dehydrated food and just add warm water. Q Even the best-trained dog can have an accident in a strange place or get sick and vomit or suffer diarrhea. Bring along a bottle of odor and stain remover and towels for cleanup „ dont use the hotels towels or the ones in your sister-in-laws bathroom! Q A hard and fast rule for us is that all dogs must empty their bladders before setting paw in hotel or home. Thats especially important if youre visiting a home (or hotel) where there are other dogs. Q When visiting family, let the dogs meet outdoors before they all go inside. Gemma grouses in the presence of strange dogs, but once she has a few minutes to adjust „ and realize shes in their territory „ she settles down and becomes polite. Q Take into account unusual conditions or places. Santa Fes chilly winter climate was a shock to tiny Gemma, used to warmer California weather, but she stayed warm and cozy in a red fleece coat. At a crowded event, she rode in a tote bag, but otherwise she explored The City DifferentŽ on her own four legs. The best part of our trip? Being told that our dogs would be welcome back any time. Q A crate keeps your pet safe in the car and provides a comfortable place to relax in a hotel room. >> Nico is a 7-year-old neutered German shepherd mix. He is a gentle, good-natured boy who came to Peggy Adams as a stray. He’s comfortable meeting new people. >> Precious is an 8-year-old spayed domestic shorthair.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 9-15, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY sun our friend&foe T HE SUNSHINE STATE IS STILL TRYING TO NEGOTIATE a stable relationship with its namesake, a 4.6 bil-lion-year-old yellow dwarf star. It loves us: People flock to the beaches to bask in its rays, making business boom. It loves us not: Left unchecked, it can age skin to the tone of a fossilized redwood tree. (Former Gov.

It loves us: It creates some of the most clement winters in the country in our own backyards, with sunshine days about two-thirds of the year in South Florida. It loves us not: Sunshine causes the most common cancer in the United States, that of the skin, occurring in about one in five people. But it doesnt have to be this way between us forever. As you get out on the trails and the beaches and the byways and skyways or even just driveways this year, Florida Weekly has consulted with experts to help you (and Fido) enjoy the outdoors in harmony with the sun.Vitamin DIts true that sunlight helps your body produce vitamin D but that fails to convince dermatologists its the best source for that. A healthy diet, or vitamin supplements, and even just the normal amount of time youre in the sun may be plenty. And your ability to produce vitamin D with sunlight decreases with age. An average person gets 18 hours of inciden-tal sun exposure per week,Ž said Dr. Keith Harris, a Fort Myers derma-tologist. You dont real-ize just the things you do „ going to the grocery store or getting the mail „ they add up and you dont have to go lay on a beach to get enough sun to produce vitamin D.ŽPetsHeat stroke is the biggest problem for dogs being out in the sun. Keeping water on hand and not letting them get too much exercise in the heat (sometimes they dont know when to stop) can help. They dont usually get sun-burned, but they can get their noses (burned), especially if their noses are pink,Ž said Dr. Robert G. Roy, medical director and owner of Palm Beach Veterinary Specialists. Hairless dogs, like variations of a Chinese crested, are the most likely to get a sunburn. Applying sunscreen can help. And some of those dogs can do OK in the sun because a lot of them, even though they have no hair, they have dark pigment in their skin,Ž Dr. Roy said. But they can still get sunburned so you still have to be careful with them.ŽYin and yang of sun exposureHealthy exposure to the sun should be a part of a larger lifestyle choice, suggests Itamar Hofler, a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine and acu-puncture physician in Bonita Springs. Its based on finding a balance between the energies of yin (female, moon, cool) and yang (male, sun, hot). When you sit out in the sun for prolonged periods, Lets be honest, youre cooking yourself,Ž he says. If you want to make your skin look like leather, sit out in the sun all day. If youre 40, youll look 90.Ž But on the other hand, sunlight nourishes us. It strengthens us. We need sunlight. If you want to help somebody stay depressed, keep them inside. But again I stress, an extreme of anything is negative.Ž HARRIS COURTESY IIMAGESHairless dogs like this Chi-nese crested could benefit from sunscreen. Tips on staying cool and protected >> Clouds are not an effective sunblock and can sometimes make the effect of light worse by re ecting it (along with elements like water, sand and snow). >> Avoid tanning and tanning beds; both expose the skin to ultraviolet rays that cause cancer. >> Wear protective clothing such as lightweight tightly woven fabrics or clothing specially made to block the sun, along with a broad-brimmed hat. >> Use extra caution near water or sand, things that can re ect the sun's rays and amplify them. >> Keep your yin and yang in balance.Sunscreen>> Get a 30 SPF or higher sunscreen labeled "broad spectrum," meaning it blocks the two most damaging types of ultraviolet light, UVA and UVB (longwave and shortwave). Follow the directions on the tube carefully. Apply liberally to dry skin 15 to 30 minutes before going outdoors. Reapply every two hours even on cloudy days and after swimming or sweating.>> Also use "broad spectrum" sunglasses. — Source: EPA Keep Fido cool>> Never, ever leave your dog in the car.>> Make sure your dog has unlimited access to fresh water.>> Make sure your dog has access to shade when outside.>> Take walks during the cooler hours of the day.>> When walking, try to stay off of hot surfaces (like asphalt) because it can burn your dog's paws.>> If you think it's hot outside, it's even hotter for your pet make sure your pet has a means of cooling off.>> Keep your dog free of external parasites ( eas, ticks) and heartworms consult your veterinarian about the best product for your pet.>> Consider clipping or shaving dogs with long coats, and apply sunscreen to your dog's skin if she or he has a thin coat.— Source: American Veterinary Medical Association

Healing lightA lack of sunlight has been cited as a cause for mood disorders by some mental health professionals, said Dr. Don Baracskay, medical director of SalusCare (formerly Lee Mental Health and Southwest Florida Addiction Ser-vices), which provides mental health and substance abuse care. The condition, usually added on as a cause for diagnoses such as depression, is called seasonal affective disorder. Its historically been tied to sunlight, or really, light,Ž Dr. Baracskay explained. Its a diagnosis that prob-ably wasnt really bought into until you get into the 1980s. And its definitely more diagnosed up in northern cli-mates.Ž He recalls light boxes being prescribed for patients, which insurance compa-nies would cover. They provided a kind of light simi-lar to ubiquitous fluorescent office lights, except you could set it on your desk and be near it for 15 or 20 minutes at a time to improve your mood. One complication, Dr. Baracskay said, is that sometimes people would sit there too long and come back with mild sunburns. In any case, there also is speculation that sunlight could lower melato-nin levels, which helps you feel more energetic during the day, and there-fore get deeper, more restful sleep at night. Research may be lacking in the direct connection between sunlight and depression or a circadian rhythm, but he speculated that could change in time. There are probably a number of brain chemicals that affect each other in a way we dont fully understand at this point,Ž he said. Non-melanoma skin cancerSkin cancer is a primary concern when treating sun lovers, said Dr. Craig Eichler, a Naples dermatologist. But he notes that a booming beauty industry has helped create an even stronger motivation for patients to comply with his recommendations. Just to know that theyre going to look more youthful is often helpful to get them to be more careful with sun exposure and try to protect themselves as best they can,Ž he said. The overwhelming majority of wrinkles, dark spots and other skin changes that occur with age are sunshine relat-ed. If you dont believe it, just consider where the sun dont shine. If you look at a 90-year-olds buttocks, its going to look pretty youthful for the most part,Ž Dr. Eichler said. Overexposure to the suns ultraviolet (UV) rays is the most common cause of skin cancers. They can show up just about anywhere on the body and in a variety of colors and textures. There are two main groups. Non-melanoma skin cancers (basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas) are the most common types and arent considered deadly because they gener-ally dont spread to other areas of the body. These are the types that people often get removed in doctors offices, but if left untreated can result in more painful operations. Even a basal cell carcinoma, left alone long enough, can do other dam-age that can be destructive to structures whether its near your eye or ear or nose,Ž said Dr. Harris.Melanoma skin cancerThe second group, melanomas, are less common, but can be deadly. The mortality rate goes up dramatically as it begins to spread throughout the body, but if caught early, can be close to 100 percent survivable. For both types, early detection is key, said Dr. Harris. One blistering sunburn in childhood or five non-blistering burns over time have a similar effect: they roughly dou-ble your chance of getting a melanoma. Its like a lot of things in life when youre young, in your teens and 20s and 30s, youre doing the things that you have no idea that 30 years from now theyre going to come back and bite you whether thats cholesterolƒ or sun exposure,Ž Dr. Harris said. And a healthy tanŽ is a misnomer. Tanning (in the sun or a tanning bed) only contributes to skin damage and increases the risk of cancer. Skin tans when ultraviolet light hits skin cells, damaging their DNA. The damaged DNA causes the cell to pro-duce melanin, which creates the tanned color. The tan is really an effect of the skin trying to protect itself from further damage,Ž said Dr. Eichler. A sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher that is labeled broad spectrum,Ž sun protective clothing, and limiting out-door activities during the most intense sunlight of the day can all help you stay healthy. A rule of thumb, Dr. Eichler said, is that if your shadow is longer than you are, the sunshine is at its most intense. Youll be exposed to the least sun dam-age when your shadow is shorter than you are. One thing everyone agreed on is that living with the sun, like any good rela-tionship, involves compromise. I encourage people to be active so I dont expect them to be hermits and never get outside,Ž Dr. Eichler said. But when youre going to be exposed to ultraviolet light you do what you can to protect yourself.Ž Q Melanoma cases in Florida From 2008 to 2010: total melanoma cases and the rate per 100,000 people>> Florida: 12,281 >> Charlotte: 195 >> Collier: 318 >> Lee: 532 >> Palm Beach: 1,157 — Source: Florida Department of Health COURTESY PHOTOIt takes about eight minutes for light and energy from the sun to travel to Florida.

We Welcome Without Exception RSVP to 561.747.1109 or email for more information. All of us together. 2250 Central Boulevard, Jupiter, Florida 33458 | | COMMENTARYThe monolith debate At a sizeable dinner party the other night I whipped out my smart-phone com-puter and made motions to look up some-thing none of us knew. I forget what, now. And since I cant Google my own memory, I cant find out with a computer. I held up the phone reverentially, then paused, like Stanley Kubricks ape pausing before the monolith in his film, 2001: A Space Odyssey.Ž Indisputably, the object before me is making the world new in ways not entirely clear, I said. Having one of these, I con-tinued portentously, is like sitting in the middle of the Library of Congress „ you can find out almost anything, instantly. It was a dramatic moment, even though using a cell phone at an elegant dinner party is bad manners, per se. But nobody questioned my manners. Instead, they questioned the thing itself. Monoliths are sometimes shady characters, after all, even when theyre as little as a cell phone. The first thing that Stanley Kubricks monolith taught his movie ape to do was pick up a bone, turn it into a club, and beat another ape to death. One of the guests, a retired Foreign Service official, immediately insisted on showing me the other sideŽ of the mono-lith debate. When he was young, he recalled, people actually had to learn things, to memorize and remember things „ not to rely on little computers. People had to keep it up here, he explained, tapping his skull. He was suggesting that civilization had fallen into a steep decline since then because of these electronic aids, which work against our ability and even our need to remember or to think for ourselves. The monoliths are doing away with real education and thinking, and replacing it with catalogues of mere information, it would seem. If you cant even ask a good question, which takes thinking, you wont ever find a great answer. And thats not all. When it comes to social media,Ž the monoliths are also kill-ing off communities with real centers, which is what the word mediaŽ means (the Latin phrase, in media res, means in the center of thingsŽ). You cant love a monolith, even if the creature of your desires appears vividly on its screen, for example. Not yet, any-way. To have a single great l ove, to have a single great community, to have a single great civilization, you have to be there in the flesh. Ive been stewing about it ever since the dinner party, in part because those argu-ments carry weight. But I still think theyre wrong.Monolith or no monolith, a good education should require the reading of acclaimed literature. It should offer disci-plined, empirical thinking and exploring „ otherwise known as science and math „ combined with frequent exercises in music and the visual arts. It should also demand a lot of physical work and play along with frequently scheduled conversations about ethics, dis-tilled from the sometimes-dark alchemy of love, war and death. So what about the tools used in that good education „ printed books, for example? And what about these infernal computers: big ones, little ones, laptops or pads or smart-phones? Do they obstruct engagement, or enhance it? In the end, I can only think of this personally, in terms of my marriage and my guns „ guns, which may be primitive monoliths. The fine American novelist A.B. Guthrie Jr., who wrote the screenplay for the clas-sic, 60-year-old film, Shane,Ž defines the use of guns this way: A gun is a tool, Mar-ian, no better or no worse than any other tool „ an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it.Ž The same is true of computers in general and smart phones in particular. In the case of my marriage, let me offer the critics of the new technologies this line from the poem, Crazy Jane talks with the Bishop,Ž by the great Irish poet, W.B. Yeats: But love has pitched his mansion in/ The place of excrement.Ž Think of computers as a place of excrement, if you will. About 15 years ago, I was writing for a daily paper here in Florida. When I learned one evening that my father was cancer-ridden and dying, I quit my job and drove home to Colorado the next day with my oldest and then only son, who had just turned 18. I moved in with my parents. My son moved back in with his mother in Kansas. My father died 10 months later. Several months after that, I received a letter offer-ing me a job back at the paper where I had once worked, from an editor there „ a woman Id never met or seen. But Id heard about her, and Id read a bit of her writing, which popped off a page like hard corn off a hot pan. So I just said no. Because I had just taken another job. But we began to correspond. And every single day for the next 60 or 80 days, we corresponded. The monolith let us do that. By computer, I watched her heart, her mind and her peerless passion for living and loving unfold in front of me. On the day I met her, finally, I had no way of recognizing her except by the energy in her walk, because Id never seen even a single photo of her. But I saw her coming down the street and I knew instantly who she was by the way she strode toward our first meeting. Id fallen deeply, completely in l ove, via monolith. Without one, I dont think it would have happened. And because she isnt stupid, when I asked her to marry me a couple of weeks later, she said no. Later, that answer changed.And I admit, it took getting away from the damned monolith. Q a a l e roger

The Dub City Derby Girls, a Palm Beach County-based team admittedly guilty on all counts wants to lend a little legitimacy to its legion by becoming a member of the Women's Flat Track Derby Association. Jenn Herseim, a Dub City Derby Girls player who goes by the name "Peace Corpse" when strapped into skates, said inclu-sion in the asso-ciation is like joining the NFL for the world of derby.Ž It's a huge deal,Ž said Ms. Herseim, a 26-year-old West Palm Beach resident. "That's the only thing that roller-derby teams have to show that they have reached a level that they're not just playing around with themselves." The team spent more than three months applying for the international governing body's apprentice program and will undergo evaluation for a year. If suc-cessful, they will join the ranks of the Gotham Girls in New York City, the Angel City Derby Girls in Los Angeles and the London Rockin  Rollers in England. It's a pretty in-depth process before you become a league,Ž Ms. Herseim said. Some teams decide not to do WFTDA because they might not want to play at that level. We kind of talked about it as a team. It shows that we're serious about roller derby. We still have fun, though.Ž How do the Dub City Roller Girls have fun? They paint their faces before bouts. They don fishnet stockings and hot pants. They yell without abandon as their alter-egos emerge. It's a really empowering sport,Ž Ms. Herseim said. As a female, traditionally, you're taught when you're younger that you shouldn't take up space, to be quiet, etc. Roller derby is the complete opposite of that. It's loud. It's self-esteemand con-fidence-boosting because of that. It's just a stress-reliever to hit somebody.Ž Roller derby consists of a pair of 30-minute halves broken down into two-minute jams. Four blockers and one jammer make up the team, and points rack up when a jammer „ identified by a big star on her helmet „ passes a blocker from the opposing team. Block-ers can't elbow or trip skaters, and if they do, they earn a trip to the pen-alty box during the otherwise no-holdsbarred game. It's a unique sport,Ž Ms. Herseim said. You don't usually get to see full-grown women knocking each other over on skates. Once you get to know the sport, it's addictive. We have fans that come from all over. It's entertaining, but there's strategy involved.Ž Those who remember the roller derby televised during the '70s and '80s know the onscreen action often surpassed the World Wide Wrestling Federation's sen-sationally staged antics. The spills taken on the flat tracks of today happen authen-tically. Before every bout, we have a demonstration, because there's bound to be fans and people who have no idea how to play roller derby,Ž Ms. Herseim said. It's still a subculture. It's definitely underground. But we're trying to make it a little more mainstream. It's coming back.Ž Dub City Derby Girls Vice President Angela Collet said the team saw large turnouts this season to its home games at Palm Beach Skate Zone in Lake Worth. They finished with an 18-1 record. The attendance has greatly increased,Ž Ms. Collet, aka Looncifer,Ž said. "We've grown a much bigger fan base this year.Ž She anticipates the three-year-old organization will cap a successful 2013 with approval from the state for 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. It would greatly help us gain sponsorships for traveling, uniforms, things like that,Ž the 26-year-old Lake Worth resident said. In the meantime, we've been doing multiple fundraisers „ car-washes, garage sales „ anything we could do to raise money.Ž It's interesting to see guys and girls play together,Ž Ms. Collet said. If a guy's a really big, muscular guy, and he's not really great on skates, then a smaller-size girl probably can take him out. It's not always about muscles.Ž Playing co-ed will sharpen the Dub City Derby Girls skating skills and strategies „ a crucial component for acceptance into the 212-league WFTDA. So far, they seem organized and ready to do this,Ž said Morgan Combs, area coordinator for the apprentice program. If that tenacity and attention to detail keeps up, they will be awesome.Ž Q KEN LEBLEU / COURTESY PHOTO DubCityTeam: The Dub City Derby Girls play at Palm Beach Skate Zone in Lake Worth.

Mr. Sillcocks says there are only four companies in the state that do what he does. He named his business Collector of Palms. His truck has a picture of Popeye with a big palm slung over his shoulder. Mr. Sillcocks has been collecting exotic palm trees, finding them and selling them to landscapers, since 1982. Boy, oh, boy, does he have stories. He once found a treasure trove of S ylvester palms in Fort Pierce. The guy he bought them from had a black-and-white photo-graph of his great grandfather planting those trees in 1893. Sentimental as those Sylvesters may be, the man was going through a divorce and his wife was get-ting the house, so he sold the trees. Mr. Sillcocks sold them to Universal Studios. Another time, he found a beauty of a banyan tree in Clewiston, for Mr. Sillcocks does not limit his business to palms. He cut that 110,000-pound banyan back to a stump, a 16-foot-wide, 25-foot-long stump. He hired state troopers to escort that stump up the back roads to Universal Studios. Took them three days to move that stump from Clewis-ton to Orlando, going 40 mph, pulling over to let the cars go by. Just last year, Mr. Sillcocks found a gumbo limbo tree in Cape Coral that he moved by barge, pushed by a tugboat around Key West, for a billionaire couple settling into Palm Beach. He will not say how much the couple spent on the tree, but says they spent $40,000 on the barge. Pretty wild,Ž Mr. Sillcocks says of the tree-collecting business. He got into the business by working for a landscaper in Clearwater. He was finding trees and mov-ing trees while his boss drove a Porsche, banking off of his back. Now working for himself, Mr. Sillcocks might be the guy who knocks on your door and say s, Hi, Im Greg. Let me give you my business card. You might be interested in this. Im a supplier of exotic palm trees. Just so happens, you have one. I want to buy it. What do you say?Ž Maybe you bought that tree when it was little, planted it because you thought it was pretty, but didnt know its worth. Maybe the birds and the bees pollinated that seed. Now that trees big and Mr. Sillcocks wants to pay you cash money for it. And I want you to plant a new seed, grow another tree for me,Ž he says. One woman in Cape Coral has grown him three trees „ Canary Island date palms „ his big-money tree. But Mr. Sillcocks does not want to talk about the money he makes. He does not want people to think hes shortchanging them, says he pays them good money. He would rather remind them of the work he does: He digs his trees out by hand, lifts them up by crane, root prunes them, trims them, cleans up all the trimmings, fills the hole in the ground, wraps the trees up safe and rigs them to move them down the road. He does not advertise. He has a reputation. Im really good at what I do,Ž he says. Back in the boom of the 90s and early 2000s, Mr. Sillcocks was living out of hotels, chasing trees. Now he lives in Cape Coral. Says hes surviving. Hes looking forward to 2014. He feels business picking up. And he has a photographic memory. He knows the trees on the east coast, wait-ing for him in Melbourne, Satellite Beach, Stuart, Port St. Lucie and Fort Pierce. He knows where the trees grow fat on the west coast, loving the salt and sand of Cape Coral, Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Bonita Springs, Estero and Lehigh Acres. Mr. Sillcocks does not feel in competition with nurseries. Hes looking for trees that are 10-years-old or older. He says nurs-eries dont want to hold onto a tree that long. Nurseries want to sell a tree within three to five years, so they can plant more trees to sell. He says nurseries sell trees with 2-foot trunks, but collectors are look-ing for trees with 10-foot trunks, 20-foot trunks, 30-foot trunks and more. Matt McGraw, customer service and marketing manager for PALMCO, a palm tree wholesaler on Pine Island, feels nurseries and tree collectors have a symbiotic relationship. Collectors provide a valu-able service in that they can sometimes locate hard-to-find specimens that cannot be found in a farm or nursery setting,Ž he says. PALMCO grows 27 varieties of palms, planting a few hundred to a few thousand of each every year, depending on the popular-ity of the variety. Over the last five years, the farm has sold an average of 18,000 to 20,000 palms per year. The farm grows its palms nice and uniform, as most clients place large orders for the sameŽ tree. PALMCO ships trees to the Florida Panhandle, Alabama, Louisiana, all over the Southeast and over to the Bahamas. Work-ers find it amusing when they get a phone call from Minnesota or Michigan, some client looking for his annual poolside palm tree. No matter how hard he tried to save the one from the year before, palm trees up north just dont keep. Palms are not as well a known Florida agricultural product as say citrus or sugar-cane, but its still an interesting industry,Ž Mr. McGraw says. Farming palms, your return on investment can sometimes take quite a bit longer. It takes so much longer to grow palms than fruit.Ž He says it can take three to seven years to grow a palm. A tree can cost $30 to $75 a year to grow, considering labor, land, fuel, fertilizer, water and so on. Whole-sale palm trees will sell for $125 to $8,000 a tree, depending on size and quality. As far as sales, Mr. McGraw says palm trees go hand-in-hand with construction. If people are not building, they are not land-scaping. But he has noticed more and more apartment complexes are renovating spac-es, giving him hope that construction and the economy are on the upswing, making nurseries and tree collectors alike happy.

Its Mobile. ‘Journey to Good Health’ improves lifestyles for staffers of Tax Collector’s office SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYIn 2011, Palm Beach County Tax Collector Anne Gannon tackled another, quite different issue she found to be tax-ing: Called Journey to Good Health,Ž it was a program she implemented, aimed at helping employees better understand their risks of chronic disease and dis-covering tools to make significant life-style changes. Health care is a major expense for any organization and we re doing what we can to lower our agen-cys risk of major claims and provide our employees with excellent health care,Ž Ms. Gannon said in a prepared statement. Year after year, the elective program has seen increased participation and improved employee results. In the past year, 80 percent of eligible employees participated in the screenings, which include clinical laboratory values, bio-metric measures and a risk factor ques-tionnaire. Screening results track risk factors associated with cardiovascular diseases and Type 2 diabetes. These diseases can be reversed and, by doing so, risk factors for hypertension and certain cancers can also be significantly reduced. Following screening, a health report card is sent to participants with lab results, risk level indicators and ideal levels to aim for. Of the 224 screened in 2013, 169 participants were invited to attend classes to learn to manage their risks in one or more of the three areas of focus: cholesterol, diabetes and weight. The classes feature a registered dietician to educate employees on diet choices and new ways to prepare old favorites. At-risk participants can also receive one-on-one counseling with the dieti-cian to address specific concerns and eating habits. All participating employ-ees are welcome to attend the classes. In 2013 new elective classes were added to reach new levels of wellness beyond diet and exercise and participating employees also received a discount on healthcare premiums. One staff member said that since the classes, she and her husband have introduced healthier foods in our diet, like steamed carrots and nuts. We dont eat fried foods any more. We set up an elliptical machine and weights for both of us to work out on. We both drink a lot of water and are as active as we can be given the demands of our jobs.Ž Another benefit, the staff member said, is that my wardrobe has doubled. I kept all my skinny clothes, many of which are now coming back into rota-tion.Ž Ms. Gannon, a marathon runner and yoga lover fueled by a plant-based diet, said she wants her employees to reap the benefits of good diet choices and frequent exercise, as well as lower their risk of a major health event. The Journey to Good Health program has become a part of our agency culture and were seeing more and more employees embrace a healthier lifestyle „ and theyre doing it together. A doc-tor may tell you that you need to lower your cholesterol, but the program not only shows them their risk, it shows them their ideal level and gives them the tools to get there,Ž Ms. Gannon said in her prepared statement. The results from the past year showed the following: Q 53 participants of the 8-week program lost a total of 455 pounds. Q 69 percent of the High Risk Total Cholesterol Group decreased their risk with an average reduction in total cholesterol of 11 percent. Q 18 lost an average of 19 pounds. Q 67 percent of the High Risk Diabetes Group lost an average of 8.75 pounds. Q 15 identified as pre-diabeticŽ were removed from the pre-diabeticŽ classification at re-screen. Q 9 with elevated triglycerides were identified as within normal limitsŽ at re-screen. Q Only 1.9 percent had slightlyŽ elevated blood pressure (either systolic or diastolic) compared to a national average of 31 percent. Since the programs inception, the agency has seen a significant reduc-tion in prescription medication claims and, while the long-term health care savings is not known, Ms. Gannon said she is confident that major incidents from complications with preventable diseases has been reduced.

ADVERTISEMENT Ask The Health & Beauty Experts What do you consider to be the most signi“ cant change in your practice for 2013? In South Florida chronic sinusitis with nasal obstruction, headaches, and facial pressure is one of the most frequent problems I encounter. We try to solve the sinus symptoms with antihistamines, cortisone nasal sprays, allergy shots and when infection complicates the “sinus” ...antibiotics. Unfortunately, when the infections become chronic and resistant to medical therapy, the problem is due to the sinuses not draining properly. A CT scan of the sinuses confirms the chronic nature of the disease process with thickening of the sinus lining, polyps and fluid (aka pus). For the past several years we have been doing computer image guided surgery with aggressive surgical drainage under general anesthesia. A 4 to 6 week recovery was required. The most SIGNIFICANT CHANGE IN MY PRACTICE TODAY is Balloon Sinuplasty. I have confirmed that Balloon Sinuplasty works in eliminating the need for agressive sinus surgery. Today, in my office under local anesthesia in as little as 30 minutes I can cure headaches, sinus pressure, and nasal drainage due to chronic sinusitis. The recovery is 1-3 days and, if necessary, a deviated septum may be corrected as well. If you or someone you know suffers from chronic sinus symptoms of headache, facial or cheek pressure, altered sense of smell and discolored mucous, have them call for an appointment. Medicare and most insurances cover Balloon Sinuplasty in the office.

How can I look like that?Answer: I’m getting close to the big “Five-O” myself, and I recommend invest-ing in porcelain veneers. I did it 14 years ago and, like my patients say, it is “the best thing I ever did for myself.” Although a significant investment at $1,400 per tooth, 10 upper porcelain veneers will permanently change the color and shape of your teeth. Many patients opt to have veneers to create straight teeth versus brac-es. They don’t stain and, with proper care, can last a very long time. Some of my patients have the same veneers I placed 20 years ago with no need to re-do them. Veneers are not crowns. The teeth are not drilled down to stumps or “spikes.” We just remove .8 millimeters of enamel off the face of the teeth to allow thin facings of porcelain to be permanently affixed to the tooth’s surface. Usually, patients are given local anesthesia to numb the teeth for this process, which can take two to three visits. Studies show the first body part that someone notices upon meeting someone for the first time is the smile. Nothing shows age more than teeth. Veneers cost as much as used car, but will not depreciate, never fade and could, perhaps, last a life time.

A18 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 9-15, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY Have we been overlooking the emotional needs of our young sons?Ryan overheard his so-called friendsŽ wisecracking in the high school locker room. He prayed he was wrong in what he d heard. But, no, they were talking about Tara hooking up with that obnoxious senior Ryan couldnt stand. Tara and Ryan had been exclusive for six months already. Hed been head-over-heels about her from the moment he first saw her. Ryan had too much pride to confront Tara directly to hear her explanation. He was hurt beyond words, and humiliated that his friends were having a field day at his expense. Later that evening, Ryan sat in his room, listlessly surfing the Internet, but deliberately avoiding Facebook. A couple of his friends texted him, but he deleted their posts. He didnt want to hear from anyone, even his supposed best friendŽ Jared. His mother kept poking her head in the room, asking if anything was up, but he told her everything was fine. So, have we been letting our young sons down? Have we made erroneous assumptions about their emotional well-being? Rosalind Wiseman, a nationally acclaimed author and educator con-tends that well-intended adults have unintentionally overlooked and misun-derstood the highly complex emotional and social pressures todays young men are facing. And, in doing so, we continue to miss important opportunities to help young people more successfully navi-gate their increasingly confusing and complicated lives. Wiseman is the author of the much acclaimed Queen Bees and Wannabes,Ž a book (written in 2002) that explored the emotional pressures of school-aged girls and the nuances of their social hier-archies. But as time passed, it troubled her that an entire generation of parents who panicked about the hookup cul-tureŽ and its effect on their daughters, often found it easy to write off the emo-tional lives of their sons.Ž Ms. Wiseman expressed concern that many adults failed to see boys as com-plex, nuanced individuals. As Wiseman pondered this glaring discrepancy in the way adults treated the two genders, she vowed to come up with answers. Boys often wind up portrayed as either opportunistic perpetrators of the worst sexual behaviors or thoughtless beneficiaries of an era in which boys get sex and girls get hurt.Ž Wiseman wisely asked the question: But is that what they want?Ž To find the answer, she spent two years exam-ining research and talking to experts. She interviewed pediatricians, learning specialists, and most importantly, con-ducted detailed ongoing conversations with hundreds of boys and young men (straight and gay) across the United States, spanning a large cross-section of locations and socio-economic strata. Wisemans findings are reported in her current work: Masterminds and Wingmen: Helping Our Boys Cope with Schoolyard Power, Locker-Room Tests, Girlfriends, and the New Rules of Boy World.Ž This book attempts to reveal the way boys think and to show parents, educa-tors and coaches how to reach out and help boys overcome their most com-mon, yet difficult, challenges. There is much discussion about a culture that often encourages boys to act like men, and to control their expression of emotions. Many groups of boys have a code of honor that strongly demands silence in tough situations, often leaving young people in the moral dilemma of whether to voice their values, even if it meant challenging their peers. Wiseman cautions that many young men in fact feel deeply about what hap-pens in their romantic relationships and friendships. However, they may not have the skills to sort out their feelings or trust enough to reach out for emo-tional support. They may struggle on their own to process challenges, lacking many of the communication skills their female peers have mastered. Sadly, they appear to be paying a large price for this deficit in elevated rates of depression and falling levels of academic achievement. Wiseman points out that our sons friends usually see a different side of them than we do „ not better or worse „ just different. She emphasizes two main points: First, when we say that boys are simple and easy, (for example, that they have a fight and then its over), we are doing a real disservice to boys and the more complex lives they lead. Well-meaning parents often stop boys from confiding when they make assumptions all is well. We contribute to their lack of communi-cating.Ž She notes that the same parents who overlook the emotional needs of their sons are the ones who may be acutely attuned to the emotional needs of their daughters. Many young women have developed more sophisticated skills to express their emotional needs. Wiseman warns: We assume boys are easy because they keep quiet, and in the process we sentence them to a lifetime of being misunderstood. If we dont recognize and appreciate the challenges theyre facing, no matter how much we love them and want to help them, they wont see us as a resource. Instead, theyll see us as an essential part of the problem. You dont need to take my word for it. Listen to them.Ž Many boys have learned from a young age to avoid over-sharing, and may shrink back from too much interest from their parents. They may squirm if there are too many questions, or if they perceive parents as hovering or over-reacting. Their parents may be the most well intended, and in fact consider themselves to be quite close to their sons. According to Wiseman: To convince boys you have good advice to share, a parent often has to respect their boundaries and above all: Stop trying to fix the problem yourself.Ž As Wiseman aptly sums up: Treating boys as emotionally illiterate has costs. It shames them into hiding how much they want meaningful connections in their intimate relationships and leaves them unprepared to process their feel-ings „ or convinces them they cant go to anyone for support when they are in pain.Ž Q „ Linda Lipshutz, M.S., LCSW, is a psychotherapist serving individuals, couples and families.

Memory center at St. Mary’s can help You put your keys somewhere ƒ and now you cant find them. You go to the kitchen ƒ and you cant remember what you needed. Dont worry. Most likely you will be able to locate your keys and get that drink of water. These mild memory lapses are usually just part of the normal aging process. But when forgetfulness begins to impact daily activities, you may need to talk with your doctor or pay a visit to the Memory Disorder Center at St. Marys Medical Center. The Memory Disorder Center is one of 15 state designated memory centers in the state of Florida offering comprehen-sive evaluations of memory disorders. It serves as a diagnostic, treatment and referral center for individuals who are experiencing changes in their memory and/or other cognitive functions, which may be affecting their daily lives. In your 20s, you begin to lose brain cells a few at a time and your body starts to make less of the chemicals that brain cells need to work. As you age, these changes affect your memory. Short-term memory (what you had for breakfast) and remote memory (where you spent your childhood) usu-ally do not change. But recent memory (the name of someone you met recently) may be affected by aging. To combat these minor memory gaps, try staying more organized. Keep lists, color code or label items, follow a routine and mark dates on a calendar. Remember to put important things, like keys, in the same place every time. Other things that can help refresh your memory include repeating some-ones name when you first meet them and remembering a location by relating it to a familiar landmark. Some memory loss, however, may have other causes, such as depression, thyroid disease, nutritional deficiencies, drug side-effects, stroke, head injury, alcoholism, mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or dementia. People with MCI experience memory lapses and often struggle to perform self-care tasks, such as taking medications. They are able to function independently, but may need prompting to remember. A typical medical evaluation by the experts at the Memory Disorder Center at St. Marys may include:Q Taking a health history and completing a physical examination to rule out treat-able conditions.Q Performing a neurological evaluation to check the patients balance, sensory abilities or reflexes.Q Reviewing results from laboratory tests to exclude possible metabolic con-ditions or vitamin deficiencies.Q Using cognitive or neuropsychological tests to evaluate mental functions.Q Performing brain scans using MRI or CT Scans.Q Obtaining a complete memory history and functional assessment. Alzheimers disease is the main cause of dementia, a condition of increasing memory impairment that affects daily activities. More than 5 million Americans over the age of 65 are affected by Alzheimers. The main risk factors for developing the disease are age and family history. There is no cure for the disease, but drugs are available to treat the symptoms of Alzheimers. While memory loss cannot be prevented, some steps you can take to help reduce your risk of developing memory problems are exercising regularly, fol-lowing a healthy diet, engaging in social activities and keeping your brain active. The difference between normal cases of forgetfulness and more serious prob-lems is that, with dementia, symptoms gradually get worse over time. Its one thing to forget where you parked the car on occasion, but quite another to fre-quently miss appointments. Talk with your doctor if you feel memory loss may be preventing you from performing daily tasks or affecting your quality of life. To sign up for a free memory loss screening or a series of six MindSet classes to exercise your brain and improve brain health, call 882-6363.

The title referenced a then-recent study: A credible, nonprofit think tank group has released a comprehensive report on the state of the U.S. housing industry that indicates the worst is over. The Demand Group is forecasting a turn in U.S. housing after six years of steady declines and after a loss of value of some $7 trillion in that asset class.Ž The 18-month-old study is worthy of reading if just to understand the basis for the correct forecast. In fact, since May 2012, the U.S. housing market has seen significant improve-ment in prices. In Florida, the turnaround is very clear. New residential construc-tion abounds on the Florida west and east coasts, in the form of new builds by homeowners and speculative builds by developers, investors and contractors. Most buyers want to know the future before they make any new residen-tial real estate investments. While the future is not knowable, there are some tea leaves that would suggest that resi-dential real estate can continue upward and that will, in turn, continue to grow the economy. There are many factors that impact residential housing prices.1. As the total U.S. population grows, more households are formed. Unless they are incredibly hard pressed, children will exit the parental home and establish their own home. While there is stagnation in growth of the U.S. population, there remains pent-up demand for housing by households formed post-2008.2. As prices rise, the investment aspect of home ownership becomes increas-ingly more attractive to those looking for investment opportunities. Most inves-tors are not capable of buying into a fall-ing market and cannot predict when the bottom is in place, so they wait for the market turn and evidence of a meaning-ful price recovery or stabilization. 3. As prices rise and the economy is improving, the banks become less squeamish about lending and credit terms become less stringent. They are also able to lend at higher interest rates. Some might think that rising interest rates dampen demand, but often buy-ers fear even higher interest rates one year or two years out. For example, the recent rate rise did not dampen hous-ing sales: According to Freddie Mac, a 30-year, conventional, fixed-rate mort-gage rose to 4.26 percent in November from 4.19 percent in October; the rate was 3.35 percent in November 2012.Ž (National Association of Realtors). 4. And in Florida, we also benefit from follow-the-leader behavior. Northerners move to Florida, then their friends come to visit and like it here, then one of the spouses begins to bug the other that they, too, need to buy now before prices rise even more, etc. No doubt, there are some snowbirds soon returning who are lamenting not having purchased last year „ or lamenting having sold too low. They might be surprised by the rise in sale and rental prices since the end of last (snowbird) season. Theres a pretty good chance that those folks will pull the trigger this year as they face relatively tight inventory levels. Per the National Association of Realtors, the total national housing inventory at the end of Novem-ber was 2.1 million existing homes avail-able for sale; this represents a 5.1-month supply at the current sales pace. This unsold inventory of 2.1 million homes is slightly more homes than a year ago. 5. Buyers are influenced by the rent versus buy comparison and, per Trulias online real estate research (most recent report of September 2013), it is still cheap-er to buy a home than rent, even after the rise in mortgage rates. Homeownership remains cheaper than renting nationally and in all of the 100 largest metro areas. But rising mortgage rates have narrowed the gap between the cost of buying and the cost of renting. The 30-year fixed rate is now 4.80 percent, compared with 3.75 percent one year ago (according to the Mortgage Bankers Association). This jump in rates has raised the cost of buying relative to renting. As a result, buying is 35 percent cheaper than renting today, versus being 45 percent cheaper than renting one year ago.Ž Specifically, in the South Florida markets, buying was cheaper than renting in Miami (36 percent); Fort Lauderdale (47 percent); West Palm Beach (52 percent); and Fort Myers/Cape Coral (46 percent).6. The stock market has been robust in the past several years and exceeded prior highs. Most individual investors do not like to sell their losers but are more inclined to sell their winners. At this point, most equity investors are back to even or if heavy into technology or NASDAQ stocks, they have money falling out of their pockets and they are willing to reallocate to real estate. Residential real estate is somewhat a self-fulfilling prophesy; a residential housing recovery provides meaningful GDP growth in that related expenditures are made: furniture, appliances, carpet, lighting, landscaping. It would seem that there is room for continued improvement in the hous-ing market. Thats good news for South Florida, which is very real estate inten-sive and sensitive.

Many canes had an extra function, too. Some held swords, guns, flasks, telescopes, cameras, fans, seats, perfume, poison, drugs or hidden papers. Many had silver, gold or jeweled handles or even handles that were mod-eled heads of presidential candidates. Elegant but fragile handles were made of porcelain. In the late 19th century, the famous Meissen porcelain factory in Germany made elaborate cane handles that look like small figurines. They were shaped to be easy to hold and carried, but would break if dropped or hit. Few of these cane handles have survived, and they often are sold without the cane shaft. A three-quarter figure of a woman extending into a curved cane handle was auctioned by Cowan s Auctions of Cincinnati in October 2013. The han-dle, with Meissens blue crossed-swords mark inside, sold for $800. Q: I have an 8-by-10-inch painting by A.E. Hayes. I have been told that its an example of tin foil art.Ž Its in a very old frame and the back is sealed with old tape. If I remove the tape, Im likely to ruin the painting. Can you tell me how this painting was done?A: Your painting is a piece of tinsel art,Ž which is a form of reverse-painting on glass. It was popular from about 1850 to 1890. Most tinsel paintings were of flowers. The painting was done in reverse order. Flowers or other foreground details were painted on the glass first and then the background was painted. Pieces of crumpled foil were added to unpainted parts of the picture. Then the picture was framed with the clear glass in front, the foil in the back. The picture was backed with cloth or paper and sealed with a piece of cardboard or thin wood. When the painting was hung, the foil glimmered in the glow of candlelight or gas light. Most tinsel pic-tures were done by young women for their own homes. Perhaps A.E. Hayes was one of these women. Good early tinsel paintings sell for $100 to $500, depending on size, subject and condition.Q: I inherited an old cider press from my uncle. Stenciling on it reads, The Higganum Mfg. Corporation Manufac-turers, Higganum, Conn., USA.Ž It still works. We made cider with it the other day. Can you tell me anything about its history and value?A: Higganum Manufacturing Co. was founded by brothers George and Thomas Clark in 1867. The company made cider mills, wine presses, lard presses, wagon jacks and agri-cultural equip-ment. It was incorporated by about 1880. In 1892, the company was renamed Clark Cutaway Har-row, after its most success-ful product. Several of the factory build-ings burned down in 1914, but the compa-ny continued to operate for several more years. The rest of the property was sold in 1942. Your cider press was probably made in about 1880, before the company name was changed. Value: About $100.Q: When I was a young boy, my grandfather gave me a violin he said was very valuable because it was a genuine Mit-tenwald.Ž Stamped inside the instrument it reads, Joan Carol Kloz, in Mittenwald, An. 1788.Ž I searched the Internet and found that Johann Carol Klotz (1709-1769) was a violin maker in Mittenwald. However, the names are spelled differ-ently on my violin and the date doesnt fit. What do you think? Is this a valuable violin? A: Millions of violins supposedly made by famous German makers are fakes made in the early 1900s. Authentic old violins are very rare. Several mem-bers of the Klotz family made violins in Mittenwald, which has been known for its violin makers since the late 17th cen-tury. The date on your violin is a problem since Joan (Johann) died in 1769. To find out if your violin is authentic, first show it to a professional violinist and ask if it appears to be a fine old violin. Then have a reputable musical instrument dealer or appraiser look at it. You will have to pay for an appraisal, but authentic old violins made by members of the Klotz family are rare and sell for thousands of dollars. Tip: From 1954 to 1963, an American radio had a small triangle or circle on the dial between the 6 and 7 and 12 and 16. It was a Civil Defense mark.

This porcelain cane handle must have been used carefully to remain unbroken for over 100 years. The woman figure was made by the Meissen porcelain factory of Germany. It sold for $800 at an October 2013 Cowan’s auction in Cincinnati.

When a potential buyer finds an ideal home, there are several steps the agent and buyer can take to increase the likeli-hood of a successful purchase. I recently observed this with my experience with my clients Jeff and Carol. Jeff and Carol made a special trip from New York to find their dream home. A property had just come on the market that I believed fit all of their needs. I was confident that because of low inventory, the many upgrades in the home, the location of the property and the pricing of the home, it would be desirable to many other buyers as well. Jeff and Carol toured the property and were delighted to find that the home included many features they had been looking for, such as streaming natural light in almost every room, floor-to-ceil-ing windows and a spacious open floor plan. As they entered the home Jeff and Carol were captivated by the breathtak-ing water view, visible from the living and family rooms. As we toured the property, there were other potential buyers there that appeared very interested as well. Jeff and Carol were ready to make an offer immediately; they did not want to miss this opportunity. They initially wanted to make an offer much lower than the market value of the property. I prepared a detailed analysis of the comparable sales over the last six months for their review. After careful assessment of the sales data, Jeff and Carol realized the initial offer price they wanted to begin with would not be a strong offer. The supporting sales his-tory indicated a much higher price than they wanted to offer. I explained to the buyers that the best approach for buyer and seller to come to terms is to set realistic expectations by reviewing equivalent home sales in the area, what was special and unique about this home and property on which they are making and why they would need to proceed with a solid offer. We discussed that the best strategy was to proceed with a strong offer, as it appeared the sellers would be receiving multiple offers. Many buyers wait until they locate a home to obtain a preapproval letter from their bank if they plan to finance. This process will delay the ability to place a strong offer if the buyer does not have the approved documents to submit with an offer. Jeff and Carol planned on financing; they followed my advice and had a pre-approval letter from their bank available to submit with the offer. We submitted the offer with a oneweek inspection and 30-day closing; these terms usually are appealing to a seller. The seller's agent indicated there was another offer submitted at the same time and the seller would review both options. Jeff and Carol were very anxious to have an answer from the seller, but they hoped that the special measures they had taken would provide then with an advantage. We received a counter offer for a higher dollar amount than Jeff and Carol had submitted on their original offer. The seller did not change the terms of the offer, so Jeff and Carol hoped that they had an advantage. Before they increased their offer price, they wanted to view the home again, so we promptly scheduled a visit of the property. Jeff and Carol walked into the home, looked at each other and said, This is the home we have been looking for.Ž That same day, Jeff and Carol raised their offer price and the sellers accept-ed. Jeff and Carol confided in me after the transaction that three of the rooms in the home were very similar to their existing home, including the furnish-ings and some of the artwork. They also knew the exact spot that their dog Smith would have his bed by the family room French doors looking out the window at the lake. They also learned that the sell-ers first home was in the same town in New York that they were moving from. Jeff and Carol were thrilled to find such a perfect fit. If you are looking for a home, consider the strategies Jeff and Carol used. When you find the home that's right for you and proceed with knowledge and a strong offer, youll maximize your chances of success.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 9-15, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTSPlenty of red flags — but they’re all mineWhen a friend loaned me her copy of Temptations of the Single Girl: The Ten Dating Traps You Must Avoid,Ž I tried not to roll my ey es. Ive had it with dating guides and their contradic-tory advice. But this one seemed differ-ent. The book bills itself as a modern fable,Ž and a fictional story provides the narrative backbone. In the story, single girl Kelly must learn to avoid the temptations that wreck many relationships, and by the 10th insight (spoiler alert) shes figured it out. She knew how to set up her dates and she knew what to ask. She knew what to avoid and what to look for. She had a process and tools that worked. Her single girlfriends marveled and scratched their heads, trying to figure out what Kelly was up to. She smiled coyly and insisted she was simply learn-ing to date smarter.Ž All of which sounds good to me. We seem to consider love less science than alchemy, and we rarely approach relationships in a systematic way. Mostly we cross our fingers and hope for the best. In the ninth chapter, we follow Kelly on a first date with a new man. Before she meets her potential match, she takes careful notes of the questions she plans to ask him. It felt more like going for a job interview than a date. This guy doesnt know it, she thought with a little smile, but hes interviewing today for the job of boyfriend-leading-to-husband.Ž On the date itself, Kelly grills the man about his past relationships: If hed ever been married, how long since his last partnership, why that particular romance ended. This, according to the book, is how smart girls proceed. But I was a little worried. It felt wrong to approach a date with a list of qualifications to tick off. Still, when a handsome man I met at a holiday party invited me out for drinks, I thought, Heres my chance. I drew up my list of questions, committed them to memory and then set out to meet him at the local pub. He turned out to be funny and an engaging storyteller, and soon I was having such a good time that I forgot all about my list. Until he started asking questions of his own. So, youre more of a cat person?Ž he said. I nodded.Well, thats a red flag.Ž He laughed as if he were only kidding. I laughed too, but I had the uneasy feeling he might be taking notes. He ordered a second round of drinks and settled back in his chair then gave me a measuring look. Have you ever been in a serious relationship?Ž he asked. I started to tell a joking story about the ins and outs of dating, but I realized he was serious. Next he wanted to know if I was marriage-minded and if I planned to have children. Suddenly, I understood what was happening: He had his own pre-screening questions. There was all that wise dating advice thrown back at me „ only he was the one dating smart.

AN ARTISTS LIFE In this series of occasional stories, visual and performing artists discuss their work habitsMixed-media artist Trina Slade-Burks also writes and teaches „ she is an instructor at Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach. Founder of A.T.B. Fine Artists & Designers LLC. with her husband, Anthony Burks Sr., Ms. Slade-Burks also is co-founder of Afro Boy (w/Alex-ie Figueroa), which promotes visual art-ists and provides image building for businesses and col-laborates arts with entertainment. She also is creator of a Palm Beach County art network called Collabora-tion. What inspires you to work on your art? Visiting galleries and museums with unique, innovative work inspires me. And believe it or not, when I go to visit my home in New York I get inspired because of all the energy around the city. Is there anything special you do to spark that inspiration? I like no one around, I like listening to music: classic hip-hop, classic R&B or classic r ock n roll. Once I put out my materials and maybe do a few sketches or layouts, I usually get the inspiration to work. When do you typically work? Im a multidiscipline artist. I write poetry and create mixed-media visual artwork. I am an author and have produced five published books including my poetry and artwork. I typically work when Im not curating shows or teaching classes „ usu-ally late night when everyones either asleep, or when everyones out of the house in the afternoons. When do you know its time to put the work away? Its hard to explain; however, once I sign the piece, its finished. Call me superstitious, I tend to not like to touch the work once it is signed, and I often get frustrated when I have to go back after it has been signed.

Q Artists Showcase to host exhibitionSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY


B8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 9-15, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY the museum as it continues to evolve under the direction of Hope Alswang. Ms. Barlo ws show, third in the Nortons annual series Recognition of Art by Women (RAW), is titled HOARD,Ž and features galleries filled, not with the cl utter that makes for reality-TV fare, but, rather, large-scale sculptures and room-size installations made from repurposed material. In this exhibition, open through Feb. 23, it is about the accumulation of the objects that make the art. Cement, plywood and pallets all come together to form „ and inform „ her works. Some are monumental, as in her untitled: eleven columns; standing, fallen, broken,Ž a 2011 installation of polysty-rene, paint, fabric, cement. Several columns soar heavenward in the gallery, while others lie scattered about the floor, much as ancient ruins. Other pieces, such as her series of broken upturned houses,Ž threaten to topple across the room. Its not a compilation of objects that are overlooked. Its a different perspec-tive that has been transformed into sculpture on a monumental scale despite the reference to anti-monumentality,Ž said Norton curator Cheryl Brutvan, who organized the exhibition. Im not aiming to make colossal works. Im aiming to make something that reaches the space that I cant reach and also to shift the way in which a work occupies a space,Ž Ms. Barlow said dur-ing a tour of the show. Some of the works were borrowed from other institutions; others were cre-ated especially for this exhibition. Ms. Barlow, born in England in 1944, came of age in the years after World War II, where areas of London were still being rebuilt after the Nazi Blitz. She lived in London during the Irish Republican Army bombings, where the broken glass covered the ground like fallen snow,Ž so she knows upheaval. It is in that upheaval that she finds her inspiration. For the upturned houses, she looked to New Orleans. There was a program on the radio „ on the BBC „ which was revisiting New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. It was a documentary program,Ž she said. She was drawn by survivors stories.One particular story was incredibly extraordinary for me. It was this man who wanted to go and find where he had lived,Ž she said. He had been among the thousands who sought shelter in the wretched conditions of the Louisiana Superdome. He walked in the direction of his neighborhood until he recognized a tree that stood at the corner of his street. Then he saw this devastated building,Ž Ms. Barlow said. Whats inter-ested me is he didnt call it house. He said, I saw my home. I think to me that way of naming things is very interesting in relating objects that maybe dont have a name.Ž Home is a very specific word.He didnt say, thats my house. He said that was my home,Ž she said, add-ing she found his statement to be deeply moving. But he said it was completely turned upside down and the building was sitting on the roof.Ž The constructions are canted slightly, much as an upturned house would be. But they seem right at home in this exhibition. Also right at home at the Norton: Those Polaroids. When Edwin Land created his instant cameras in the 1940s, it revolutionized the photographic industry. With these cameras, home photographers could see an image in minutes, rather than hours or days waiting for film to be processed and prints to be developed. That was a multistep process, though, that involved waiting to peel the nega-tive from the positive. The catch: if the user peeled back the layers too quickly, it yielded an underexposed image. By 1972, Polaroid had created the SX-70 camera, one in which the film integrated all the layers to expose, develop and fix the photo. This exhibition, open through March 23, brings together about 180 Polaroid pictures by more than three dozen art-ists. It spans four decades, from 1972 „ the year the SX-70 camera was released „ to the present. The list of photographers represented is impressive. Ansel Adams, Walker Evans, Chuck Close, Richard Hamilton, Robert Map-plethorpe, Andy Warhol and William Wegman make up the older generation of photographers, while such talents as Bryan Graf, Anne Collier, Lisa Oppen-heim, Dash Snow and Mungo Thomson represent a younger generation. We thought this show would be a good one because its all about instan-taneousness,Ž said Tim Wride, the Nor-tons William and Sarah Ross Soter Curator of Photography. Curator for the show is Mary-Kay Lombino, The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center Curator of Contemporary Art and Photography at Vassar College. Ansel „ you know his famous quote, The negative is the score and the print is the performance. Well, here he has everything faded into one so its a jazz riff,Ž Mr. Wride said during a tour. Seeing Adams work in that format is overwhelming to some degree; then again, so is seeing the large-format Pola-roid self-portraits of Chuck Close, who lobbied to keep the works he shot for Polaroid together after the company closed and tried to sell off its collection. Mr. Closes five-print, T-shaped 1979 self-portrait is one of the iconic images of the exhibition. But so are his huge, single-image portraits, some made in the 70s, some more recently. David Levinthals Barbie prints, with fashion shots of the doll, are here, as well as abstract works by Andr Kertsz. But most impressive of all is the 900-print abstract installation Los Angeles-based artist Matthew Brandt created last fall using a new instant film produced by The Impossible Project, a company created by 10 former Polaroid employees who bought the last operat-ing Polaroid factory to save the process from extinction. Be sure to bring your Smartphone.Apropos of everything in a photography exhibition, its best viewed through a lens.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 9-15, 2014 B9 Q No. 9: Fruitvale StationŽ Based on a true story, the film follows an early-20s African-American named Oscar Grant during the last day of his life in Oakland on New Year s Eve in 2008. After multiple arrests in the years prior, Oscar vows to be a better father, son and boyfriend, but a late-night altercation with Bay Area police officers finds him unjustly killed. Its a sad story very well acted by Michael B. Jordan as Oscar, and I daresay its still a socially relevant story as well. Available on home video Jan. 14. Q No. 8: FrozenŽ Disney Animation (TangledŽ) has done it again with this gorgeous musi-cal. Its a simple story of innocent sister Anna chasing her cursed sister Elsa into the mountains after Elsa freezes their kingdom in ice. The songs, highlighted by Idina Menzels rousing rendition of Elsas Let It Go,Ž are all showstoppers, and the story is funny and sweet in all the right ways. In theaters now.Q No 7: Spring BreakersŽ Coming-of-age stories tend to conclude with a teenager figuring out who he or she is and finishing the film with a bright, satisfying smile. Although it has those elements, Spring BreakersŽ also dares to suggest that sometimes finding oneself leads to answers society wont like. Add to this various teenage debaucheries, graphic nudity and an Oscar-worthy James Franco as a rapper/gangster, and you have the most dar-ing film of the year. Available on home video.Q No. 6: HerŽ Writer/director Spike Jonzes (AdaptationŽ) latest meta-existential project stars Joaquin Phoenix as a loner named Theodore in a futuristic Los Angeles. His life takes an intriguing turn when he falls in love with his computer operating system (voiced by Scarlett Johansson) and believes they have a real relation-ship. Does he? One of the best things about the film is that it prompts us to wonder what the future holds for rela-tionships, what qualifies as a real rela-tionship and whether a physical pres-ence is needed for someone to be truly special to you. One of the smartest and most thoughtful films youll see, its in limited release now and expands nation-wide Jan. 10. Q No. 5: The Spectacular NowŽ Rarely do teen coming-of-age stories feel this authentic, genuine and true. Shailene Woodleys Aimee is pretty but doesnt know it, a high school outcast with a bright future. Miles Teller s Sutton is the popular guy everyone likes, but is headed nowhere. They date, but reality hits and yields some surprising and not-so surprising revelations. Any movie that so faithfully and earnestly recalls the angst of teenage emotion is a must-see for me, and this film did it bet-ter than any in recent memory. Available on home video Jan. 14. Q No. 4: Star Trek Into DarknessŽ I find it stunning how director J.J. Abrams is taking the original Star TrekŽ canon and incorporating it into his new vision for the franchise. Yes, it was ridiculous to try to keep the identity of the villain a secret for so long, but the anticipation for the film itself was well worth the wait, as this was easily the best film of the summer. For the great visuals, action and story, J.J. Abrams, I salute you. Available on home video.Q No. 3: GravityŽ It might lack a deep emotional story, but this work of art is the most techni-cally ambitious and beautifully ren-dered film Ive seen in a long, long time. With its breathtaking visuals of Sandra Bullocks and George Cloo-neys astronaut characters floating adrift in outer space, director Alfonso Cuaron has rightfully asserted him-self as a legit Oscar contender. If you havent seen this yet, you should do so ASAP „ and in 3D on the biggest screen possible. Your eyes will thank you for it. In theaters now.Q No. 2: American HustleŽ You know those movies that are so much fun you want more of everything they have to offer? This is one of them. Starring Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, director David O. Russells (Silver Lin-ings PlaybookŽ) latest is a perfectly written, acted and directed period piece of the late 70s that oozes style and charisma. Its funny, suspenseful and charming „ the type of story that movie lovers crave and dont get nearly enough of. In theaters now.Q No. 1: 12 Years A SlaveŽ The emotional impact of 12 Years A SlaveŽ is unlike any Ive felt since Schindlers ListŽ (1993). Slavery in the United States has never before been this exposed, this downright sicken-ing in terms of the harsh brutality that many African-Americans endured. The story follows a free Northerner named Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor) as hes kidnapped and sold into slavery. Director Steve McQueen gets great performances out of every member of his cast, and the result is a film that will leave you infuri-ated at the injustice that was once commonplace in the country we call home. Powerful, riveting and wonder-fully acted, 12 Years A SlaveŽ is in theaters now.Honorable mentionsHere are some films that, while wonderful in their own way, just missed that special something to crack the Top 10: The Muslim American experience was given a thought-provoking twist in The Reluctant FundamentalistŽ ; the awkward insecurity of youth was wonderfully brought to bear in The Way Way BackŽ ; Hugh Jackman gave a strong dramatic performance in PrisonersŽ ; and Tom Hanks will likely earn his sixth Oscar nomination for Captain Phillips.Ž Speaking of Oscar noms, expect to see Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto on the list for their great turns in Dallas Buyers Club.Ž Also, The Best Man HolidayŽ perfectly mixed humor, pathos, holiday sen-timent and the value of friendship; and Martin Scorseses The Wolf of Wall StreetŽ is equal parts bawdy, ribald and absurd, all in a good way.

This hit musical comedy is the guiltiest pleasure of the year.January 24, 1:30 pm Frank Theaters, Delray BeachJanuary 26, 1:45 pm Cobb Theatres, Palm Beach Gardens CUPCAKES +++ Is it worth $10? YesThe inclination to reveal the end of the movie in its opening moments is inexplicable, unfathomable and unfor-giveable. It has worked exactly two times in film history „ Sunset Bou-levardŽ (1950) and American BeautyŽ (1999) „ both of which were master-pieces for a variety of reasons. Every other time its been attempted, the technique has yielded the same futile effect: The audience observes the hero in a damaged state, then theres a jump to the beginning of the story, mean-ing all the life-or-death scenarios in which the hero embarks have zero legitimate suspense because the viewer has already seen the character later in the story. Why undermine the entire movie with an unnecessary flashback? Lone SurvivorŽ makes this mistake. The opening shows Marcus Luttrell (Mark Wahlberg) in a helicopter receiv-ing medical attention, clearly alive but very banged up. We then jump to three days earlier. Not sure about you, but if Im watching a movie called Lone SurvivorŽ and it begins with the ending and shows a major movie star still alive, I kinda feel like I know who the lone survivor is. The idea that were sup-posed to be interested in seeing how he gets hurt is irrelevant. The fact remains that director Peter Bergs (BattleshipŽ) movie would be more interesting, dra-matic and tense if we didnt know who survives. Its a shame, too, because this is otherwise a pretty darn good movie. In Afghanistan in June 2005, Operation Red Wings sends four Navy SEAL Team 10 members into the mountains to capture/kill Taliban leader Ahmad Shah (Yousuf Azami). The team includes Luttr ell, squad leader Mike Murphy (Taylor Kitsch), Danny Dietz (Emile Hirsch) and Matt AxeŽ Axel-son (Ben Foster). All is well until they encounter three goat herders „ and elderly man, a teenager and a boy „ and take them hostage. The SEALs decide to let them go and evacuate the area, but soon find themselves in a gun-fight with Taliban mercenaries. The shootout on the mountain is harrowing, lengthy and tough to watch. The SEALs communicate well, work together, use intelligence and skill, but they are so outnumbered its almost an impossible fight to win. These scenes, as well as the strategic planning and discussions, are nicely shot and edited; the director creates a palpable sense of immediacy that suc-cessfully puts us on the hill with these heroes. As a result, we see and feel true heroism, and its inspiring. Too bad we already know who survives. It appears Mr. Berg is intent on championing the SEALs heroism and courage „ and understandably so. No doubt having the r eal Lutt rell on set, especially while on the mountain, helped ground the film in realism. However, neither intention nor authen-ticity excuses the narrative disservice done by ruining the ending. Being a bit more stealthy in story structure, but just as impactful „ vir-tues the SEALs no doubt would appre-ciate „ would have been the way to go here. The script, written by Mr. Berg, is based on a book by the real Mr. Luttrell and Patrick Robinson. I ask: How often do moviegoers know the writers of a movie? Or even care? For market-ing and entertainment purposes, the truthŽ of the situation could have easily been hidden (or at least down-played) by Universal Pictures in order to allow Lone SurvivorŽ to work better dramatically. Q CAPSULESThe Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug +++ (Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage) Bilbo (Mr. Freeman), Gan-dalf (Mr. McKellen), Thorin (Mr. Armit-age) and 12 other dwarves head for a showdown with Smaug, a fire-breathing dragon. The action and effects are superb and its a worthy middle installment in this HobbitŽ trilogy, but its too long, and it lacks a clear ending. Rated PG-13. ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ +++ Money, drugs and hookers are a dangerous combination for anyone. When put in the hands of a hotshot young stockbroker without a conscience, they can be deadly. In the case of Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio), debauch-ery becomes a way of life. With moral-ity nowhere to be found, he and his colleagues, especially his right-hand man Donnie (Jonah Hill), arent easy people to like, but they are fun to watch. Rated R. Q >> Video of Navy SEAL training comprises the opening credits, and images of the real individuals involved are shown before the closing credits. In all ways imaginable, this movie is a love letter to the Navy SEALs. LATEST FILMS‘Lone Survivor’ t i p s p c dan

Tidelow Press. 312 pages. Trade paper $14.95. Diane Ketcham s New York journalist A.J. (Agatha Jasmine) Billings is staying real close to her boy-friend, Naples area Congressman James WhitŽ Whitman. The couple is making all the right moves to enhance Repub-lican Party chances in the upcoming elections. There are fundraisers galore, many focused on the re-election of Car-son Wicklow, chairman of the governing county commission. JazzŽ is enjoying her hot relationship with Whit, though shes a bit perturbed at having her identity reduced to the woman in his life. After all, she is „ or has been „ an independent somebody. As one might expect in a mystery story, theres trouble in Paradise. A young man has vanished without a trace, leaving his tennis-playing girlfriend, an acquain-tance of Jazz, getting nowhere with the local constabulary. They just dont take her missing person complaint seriously. When Jazz tries to help, she too is stone-walled. Whats going on here? Worse, Commissioner Wicklows gorgeous teenage daughter Cara, who has been incarcerated in a hard case private school for troublesome girls (for her own good) is found dead. It looks like suicide at first, but a closer look suggests murder. Whats a somewhat bored, award-win-ning journalist to do? Check out the secretive school and the teenag-ers friends, thats what. Why not connect with her boss-editor at the New York paper and get assigned to do a feature on this weird school and the even weirder soror-ity whose initiation rites are extraordinarily per-verse ƒ and dangerous? There is one person who is likely to give Jazz the best insights into Cara: her twin sis-ter Chasen, who has been somewhat reclusive since the murder. Yes, I said twin sister. Use your imagination. The tenuous state of Jazzs love life and domestic life is a cause of addition-al suspense throughout the novel. Her large, diarrhea-prone Labrador retriever is not at all welcome in the condominium where she and Whit live, and confrontations with the condo overlords threaten. And why is Whit spending so much time with Mara, the former stepmoth-er to Wicklows twins? Is it just elec-tion campaign business „ or something more? Jazzs lover is not so much a loverboy now that she is plying her journalistic trade; he seems rather standoffish and preoccu-pied. Whats the problem? Though the author most often sticks to the main characters point of view, she occasion-ally slips into the heads of other characters to deepen understand-ing and build suspense. Such shifting of perspectives can misfire, but Ms. Ketcham han-dles it effectively. Also effective are the many humorous touches that are part of the novels weave. Though the story line focuses on plenty of suffering and on serious con-cerns, somehow Ms. Ketcham is able to inject a lighter touch to balance the tone and relieve the tension. Yes, murder mys-teries can be funny. Readers who know the Naples area will enjoy the tour of familiar locations: Fifth Avenue, Waterside Shops, Ave Maria, Coconut Point and even the com-munity meeting room at the Naples Daily News building on Immokalee Road. With a Naples map in hand, you can follow the action. Ms. Ketcham has stopped just short of product placement, but maybe next time. How does the author know so much about journalism, political campaigns and writing thriller fiction? Well, she was a national award-winning columnist for The New York Times. Her columns about Long Island were judged the best in the nation and the best in New York. Before these efforts, she was press secretary and chief of staff for a New York congressman. She also worked in television and was seen on WLIW-TV as a weekly commentator. Ms. Ketchams first novel, The Vanishing A-List,Ž won two national mystery/thriller awards. Naples: Paradise Can Be DeadlyŽ is available from major online booksellers; signed copies are available from the publisher at Q „ Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. g b s g I f s phil n e d no t lo v th at in g is ti se e s t an p i e t h au of to c p s a t o c t pe ns e S uc h sh if ti ng Ketcham

S CONTRACT BRIDGEFamous hand BY STEVE BECKERThis deal features Edwin Kantar, Los Angeles star, who played it in a national team-of-four champion-ship. West led a diamond against four hearts, and East cashed two diamonds before returning a trump. Looking at all four hands, you might think the contract would fail by either one or two tricks. But Kantar analyzed his prospects thoroughly and came up with an inspired line of play that brought home the game. He decided that his best chance was to play East for specifically the K-x of spades and the king of clubs, which East was likely to have on the bidding. Accordingly, after playing three rounds of trumps, Kantar cashed the ace of spades and then led a spade to dumm ys eight! This worked out just as he had hoped when East was forced to win the trick with the king, thus establish-ing an extra spade trick in dummy on which Kantar could later dis-card one of his club losers. But that wasnt all Kantar accomplished with this play, for East now had to return a club or yield a ruff-and-discard, allowing South to escape his other club loser. So Kantar miraculously wound up making four hearts, finding a way to avoid losing any clubs at all. Note that it would not have helped West to play the nine of spades on the second spade lead. Kantar, consistent with his play, already had assigned East the doubleton king of spades, and he would have proceeded on that assumption regardless of which spade West produced on the trick. It isnt easy to talk a fellow like Kantar out of a preconceived notion. Q

The recipe goes something like this: Take 10 chicken wings, marinate them, roll them in spices, then grill them to tender perfection. The yre not breaded, theyre not fried, so they make for virtually guilt-free eat-ing. Well, almost „ they come with a side, and we opted for fries and blue cheese dipping sauce. So much for keeping the calories down. But we think they would be even tastier with Park Avenues new mustard-based sauce, called The Heater.
