The Miami-based Knight Foundation, the Community Foundation for South-east Michigan, the Kresge Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and Kellogg Foun-dation have now pooled over $370 mil-lion in grant funding to the city. The collaborative effort generated national headlines because the grant purposes thrust the participating foun-dations deep into a no-foundation-land of government-funded services and programs. Foundations want to avoid philanthropy as the default when gov-ernments cease to fund community ser-vices; and they have little appetite for wading neck-deep into political contro-versy. The combined-grant to Detroit is unusual because it does both: Its purpose is to ward off creditors lined up to raid the retirement nest egg of public pensioners and force the sale of the citys art treasures in the aftermath of the citys bankruptcy. The risk of unin-tended consequences for foundations is high. Many American cities face finan-cial difficulties every bit as challenging as those of Detroit. The proliferation of philanthropy bailouts is a foundations worst nightmare. How the Detroit grant came to be is controversial, and its downsides may be greater to foundations than initially supposed. An article by The Chronicle of Philanthropy drops the other shoe: A problem bigger than the foundations giveŽ to Detroit may be its takeŽ „ the terms and conditions demanded by foun-dations as part of the deal. The grant agreement may be more unusual than the gifts purposes. The foundations pledge to write no checks until a long list of private and public insti-tutions meet certain conditions „ condi-tions negotiated behind closed doors that remain confidential. According to The Chronicle, This crosses a line between merely seeking and blatantly demanding responses from potential grantees, including public agen-cies that should be answerable only to the voters. Such philanthropic coercion may not sit well with the American people.Ž It also turns out the grant initiative is at the suggestion of the federal judge mediating the citys bankruptcy case, which only raises more eyebrows. Rick Cohen, a writer for The Nonprofit Quarterly sums up the troublesome optics: Foundation CEOs negoti-ating the future of Detroit behind closed doors with an unelected federal judge and a state-appointed emergency man-ager: That is hardly a recipe for a democratic or accountable process.Ž Such commentary gives hives to a founda-tions communications staff. Agencies that receive foundation funding know about the giveŽ and the takeŽ in the process of nailing the terms and conditions of a grant. A proposed budget and plan of action is often subject to extensive editing by foundations before there is mutual agreement. An example is the surgery on a project budget by a foundation that eliminates administra-tive expenses sought by the agency to make a project feasible. Second-guessing by foundations breeds resentment and incredulity seldom expressed by agen-cies to a funders face. Grantees try to sustain an equitable bargaining position in negotiations with foundations but it is unlikely. The shorthand used to char-acterize this imbalance in power is the Golden Rule,Ž i.e., he/she who has the gold makes the rules. When foundations are aggressive in exercising the upper hand, nonprofits often leave the bargain-ing table with a case of buyers remorse, having had diminished by half a plan in which they remain confident; and of course, the perception if not the fact of coercion is a trust-buster. Another example of foundations wielding the power of its grant pocket-book is unfolding in Pittsburg. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation threatens to pull the plug on a $40 million grant to Pittsburgh public schools because the school district and teachers cannot agree on implementation of a core element of the grant. The Nonprofit Quarterly says the conflict is over a demand made by the foundation that teacher evaluation standards be adopted by joint agreement of the district and the teachers union that are more stringent than the standards used anywhere else in the state. What the public thinks about that provision isnt known because they have not been asked. Foundations are justified in asserting their right to get what they pay for, given their sizeable investments; but the take it or leave itŽ attitude will not win the public relations battle nor will the by-pass of public accountability be assuaged by a grant used like a velvet hammer. The thornier issue with foundations carrying a big stick is the temptation of lawmakers to take it away. In the circumstance of too little transparency, a thwarted, democratic process, and a toxic political climate, private philan-thropy is too easily a target; and that is the ultimate worry.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 13-19, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Sochi Olympics, from Putin and the Plutocrats to Pussy Riot The Sochi Olympic Games are rightly highlighting the constellation of abus-es that have become standard in Russia under Vladimir Putin. Most notably is intense, often violent homophobia, tac-itly endorsed by the government with the recent passage of the law against gay pro-paganda.Ž While Sochi shines a light on Russian human-rights violations, it affords an opportunity to expose the rampant cor-ruption and abuse that accompanies the International Olympic Committee.I first personally experienced the corrupting influence of the Olympics when attempting a routine entry into Canada, to give a talk at the Vancou-ver Public Library in November 2009. Two colleagues and I were ordered out of our car by the Canadian border guards. I was interrogated at length, as other guards busily rifled our car. They wanted to know the topics of my talk. I told them I would talk about the importance of an independent media, about the Obama administrations war in Afghanistan, its efforts to derail to the U.N. climate negotiations and more. Are you planning on speaking about the upcoming Winter Games in Vancou-ver?Ž The thought hadnt entered my mind, at least until the interrogation. My detention became a national story across Canada. In order to host the Olympics, cities have to buckle under the IOCs strict rules, and governments have to provide enormous public subsi-dies, primarily for sports stadiums and other construction projects that are paid for but often unwanted by the local citi-zens. To force this boondoggle on the public, the IOC and host governments crack down on dissent. In Putins increasingly totalitarian Russia, the repression is even greater, as is the plunder of the public coffers. The low estimates put the cost of the Sochi Games at $51 billion, more than four times the estimated cost and, remarkably, more than the cost of all previous Winter Olympics combined, as reported by Dutch newspa-per NRC Handelsblad. Political sports-writer Dave Zirin told me: One road from the Olympic Village to the top of the ski mountain is going to cost $8.7 billion. Not only is that more than the entire price tag for the Vancouver Games, but they could have paved the entire road in Beluga caviar, and it would have cost less.Ž Zirin reported that at least 25 workers were killed during the frantic race to finish the construction in Sochi. While workers suffer, Zirin says the beneficiaries of the largess are a combination of the Russian state and the Russian plutocracy.ŽAlong with Putin and the plutocrats, the Olympics are a marketing bonan-za for multinational corporations. The USOC (U.S. Olympic Committee) boasts among its corporate sponsors Dow Chemical, GE, McDonalds, Budweiser and BP. Samantha Retrosi was recruited at the age of 11 during the Verizon-USA Luge Slider Search,Ž and competed with the U.S. Olympic luge team at the 2006 Winter Games in Torino, Italy. Corpo-rate sponsorship is of paramount neces-sity,Ž she told us on the Democracy NowŽ news hour. Theres no govern-ment support for luge or any other Olympic sport. Essentially, the system is entirely privatized ... as a U.S. national team athlete, I signed a contract every year with the U.S. Luge Association, and that contract stipulated what I could and couldnt say. Essentially, I was being trained to be a spokesperson for Veri-zon.Ž While Verizon no longer sponsors the U.S. luge team, the dependence on corporate sponsorship remains. On the issue of gay rights, President Barack Obama is making a statement against Putin by not attending, instead sending several LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) athletes on the official U.S. delegation. Tennis legend Billie Jean King was appointed, but cant attend due to her mothers ill-ness. When asked about the prospect of protests at the Sochi games, King told CBS: Theyre not supposed to protest or demonstrate. And if they do, they can have their medals stripped, and they can be sent home. But I also think some of the athletes will probably have their say. ... I would do something.Ž Speaking out in Russia can bring serious consequences. The activist punk band Pussy Riot played a musical, anti-Putin statement in Moscow, and two of its members were thrown into prison for 21 months. Just released, they are now visiting the U.S. with Amnesty International. One of the band mem-bers, Maria Alyokhina, told me at their first U.S. news conference: We would like for Americans to really look at Rus-sia and see Russia beyond the images of Olympic objects and buildings. ... The only thing which connects these objects to the country is taxpayer money, which has been stolen.Ž The Pussy Riot band members are taking a courageous stand against Putin. But they are also taking a stand here, planning to visit at least one U.S. prison. They will then head back to Russia. As Zirin said, In a sane world, Pussy Riot would be playing the opening ceremo-nies at the Sochi 2014 Olympics.Ž Q „ Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,000 stations in North America. She is the co-author of The Silenced Majority,Ž a New York Times best-seller. OPINIONOn Keystone, action can wait President Barack Obama has urged that we make this a year of action,Ž and he is going to do his part by acting with vigor and dispatch to continue to study the proposed Keystone XL pipe-line project.The State Department just acted with an 11-volume, 7,000-page environmental review that concludes, like the several reviews prior to this point, that the pipeline poses no environmental hazard. Youve got to hand it to the State Department „ when it is determined to act, it moves.White House chief of staff Denis McDonough went on Meet the PressŽ to explain all the dizzying activity tak-ing place as the U.S. government mar-shals its resources to see that Keystone is perpetually reviewed. We have one department with a study,Ž McDonough explained. Now we have other expert agencies, the EPA, and many others, who have an oppor-tunity „ the Energy Department, an opportunity to look at this and make their determinations.Ž For its part, the State Department still needs to evaluate whether the pipeline serves the national interest, necessitat-ing another period of intense action that will include asking for the views of eight federal agencies identified in (Executive Order) 13337.Ž The Keystone project would add roughly 800 miles of pipeline in the U.S. and carry more than 800,000 barrels of oil a day to our refineries in the Gulf from the tar sands of Alberta. It has been under consideration for more than five years, even though Hillary Clinton said in 2010 that the State Department was inclinedŽ to approve it. And why not? Paul Knappenberger of the Cato Institute notes that a simi-lar pipeline project, the Alberta Clip-per, won approval in two short years back in 2009 with glowing marks from State „ it would advance a number of strategic interestsŽ and send a positive economic signal.Ž Keystone XL was different; it became a hate symbol for the environmental left. In its fevered imagination, stopping the pipeline became a way to stop the development of the dirtyŽ tar sands of Canada and to slow climate change. As Brigham McCown, a former admin-istrator of the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, puts it, opponents of the pipeline thought it was a Khyber Pass where a glorious stand could be made against Canadian oil. This was always a childish fantasy. First, because the tar sands will get developed regardless, and more funda-mentally, because the numbers dont add up. Conservative writer Oren Cass makes the point that the United States accounts for less than six of the 35 gigatons of carbon emissions worldwide, and our emissions growth has been flat, while India and China have been growing at a double-digit rate. We could end all our emissions tomorrow and the rest of the globe would quickly make up the differ-ence. The oil that would be transported by Keystone is but a drop in a vast ocean. None of this matters, though, because railing against Keystone is such a potent organizing and fundraising tool for its opponents. President Obama is loath to cross them, and so will take swift and certain action „ to keep examining the issue closely.

PET TALESRescue rulesDogs are happiest when rules are clear about what’s allowed and what’s not BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickA few months ago, I wrote about our foster cavalier, Kibo. Since then, Kibo „ now Keeper „ has become a perma-nent part of our family, and Im happy to say that hes adjusting nicely. Other than occasionally climbing onto the din-ing room table to check for food when someone forgets to push in a chair after eating, he hasnt really broken any rules or caused any damage. Hes a nice dog in general, but I think it helped that we pro-vided him with clear expectations and a structured environment from day one. Its all too easy to start off by spoiling a foster dog or one adopted from a shelter or rescue group. Who wouldnt want to give him a little special treat-ment after the upset of losing his family? Think again. Free run of the house, lots of treats and no demands are a good recipe for trouble and can make it dif-ficult for him to fit in as a new family member. The following tips will help you set up your new dog for success: Q Housetraining. Even dogs who are already housetrained may be anx-ious and forget their manners in a new place. I was concerned about Keeper lifting his leg in the house. Treating him as if he were a puppy ensured that he had only one incident of urinating where he shouldnt. Heres what to do: 1. Take him outside to potty on leash on a regular schedule and praise him when he performs.2. When you cant pay close attention to him, confine him to a crate, exercise pen or room with an easily cleanable floor. 3. If you take him outside to potty and he doesnt do anything, put him into his crate and then take him back out later. Q Set rules. Keeper was very comfortable jumping onto the sofa and chairs. Fortunately for him, thats OK in our house, but a couple of chairs are off-limits to dogs. When he jumped on them, I gave an immediate OffŽ com-mand and directed him to the sofa. If your house rules call for dogs to keep four on the floor, establish that from the beginning. No just this onceŽ or just while hes getting settled in.Ž Dogs dont get the concept of some-times.Ž If you find him on the furni-ture, say OffŽ and indicate what you want with a pointed finger or sweeping motion of your arm. If necessary, lure him with a treat to an alternate spot, such as a dog bed or blanket on the floor. Praise and reward him when hes on it. Repeat as needed, always using a neutral and matter-of-fact tone. Theres no need to sound angry. Q Ban begging. Keepers worst habit is begging at the table or hanging out in the kitchen waiting for something to drop onto the floor. A couple of tech-niques can help to deter this habit, or at least make it less annoying: Feed your dog before the family eats so he has no reason to beg. At mealtime, send the dog to his crate or dog bed using a neutral, matter-of-fact voice. Repeat as needed, making sure the kids and your spouse arent slipping him their Brussels sprouts when youre not looking. Use the same technique in the kitchen when you are preparing meals. Theres nothing wrong with the dog being in the kitchen while you cook, but he should be in a corner, out of the way.To recap: Be firm and consistent, show him what you want instead of scolding him for what you dont want, and offer praise and rewards when he does things you like. As you come to know him and he becomes familiar with the house routine, you can gradually give him more freedom to make himself at home. Q It’s OK to allow dogs on the furniture, but be sure they also understand the “Off” command. Pets of the Week>> Dakota is a 5-year-old neutered boxer mix.

He knows that com-bat can be both glorified and reviled, and that not everyone is comfortable with the trappings of war or the mili-tarys training and preparation for it, or with its dovetail with corporate profits and political and commercial flag-waving. He also knows what it means to serve. What matters most about the Hondas and the PGA Tours efforts, he says, is their welcome for soldiers and their families and acknowledgment of their sacrifices and troubles. Oh, my God, thats huge,Ž he says. Huge. Just the awareness, and accep-tance, and support. I could go on and on about all of those.Ž When Brown first came out to the Honda Classic from his home in Vero Beach two years ago, answering the tournaments admission-free invitation to active-duty personnel and veterans of all wars and their dependents, he found that the Patriots Outpost near the heart of the three-hole Bear Trap was only his first welcome surprise. He came back last year to find even more. Somehow, he missed seeing the heli-copters. What he DID see almost overwhelmed him. Im not a big golfer,Ž he says, but at the Honda its just an awesome, awesome atmosphere, where youre catered to, venues are set up, and youre just in awe of the tourna-ment and all the reception that you get.Ž What hell see THIS year promises bigger and better pavilions, more hos-pitality, improved seating and sight-lines, catchier bunkers, new sponsors, more promotions and interactive booths, and the same reliable cadres of course-keepers and managers and vol-unteers and bus drivers and the PGA Nationals polished hospitality staff. Hondas producers work to keep the tournament in public view. Coming into February or March, we want to have that continuous connec-tion with our community,Ž Ed McEnroe says. So were involved in 47 events during 51 non-tournament weeks, whether it be the 5Ks that we own and operate, and proceeds from it to Seagull Industries for the Disabled, or a Junior Honda Classic golf tournament that we host in December. Our junior par-three challenge opened the month of February. Those are events that we own and operate, but we also get heav-ily involved in events like ArtiGras (Fine Arts Festival), Race for the Cure, things like that. When it comes to the week of the tournament, a lot of people dont real-ize that we actually do another 48 events, whether it be private functions for Honda or charitable functions or public events like the fireworks show and after-play concerts. Were keeping our team pretty busy, thats for sure.Ž Numbers tell part of what theyve accomplished. The Honda Classics contributions to more than 125 charities and other local causes, especially to the Nicklaus Chil-drens Healthcare Foundation, the main beneficiary, have set records every year, rising to more than $2.1 million in 2013. Attendance has spiked, too, from 101,200 in 2010 to 161,700 in 2012 and 167,800 last year. In the two most recent years, the tournament didnt operate on mili-tary time, although the staff in the weeks leading up might seem to work 24-hours days. But it DID operate on Tiger time. His appearances in 2012 and 2013 gave the tournament an elec-tric jolt. By Feb. 11, the top eight-ranked golfers in teh PGA had committed to the tournament, ensuring that the field will be one of the best. Tiger, Phil Mickel-son and Rory McIlroy were generating buzz. Woods might seem more likely than any other tour player to support mili-tary appreciation. His father, Earl, who taught his son the game and gave him guidance, direction and discipline, served two combat tours in Vietnam, the second in Army Special Forces, the Green Berets. He came home with a bronze star and discovered golf in his 40s as a source of comfort, challenge and rejuvenation. Tiger Woods first learned the game on military courses in southern California. His name came from his fathers friendship with Colo-nel Vuong Dang TigerŽ Phong, a Viet-namese pilot known for his bravery. The golfer most identified with military appreciation, though, is Phil Mickelson, who, with his wife Amy, launched Birdies for the Brave „ dona-tions based on Mickelsons birdies and eagles, now overseen and expanded by PGA Tour Charities „ that flows to eight soldier support groups, includ-ing Homes for Our Troops, Opera-tion Homefront and the Navy SEAL Foundation. Its success spurred the Tour to embrace veterans, especially the wounded and distressed, and their families. For Joe Brown, as for so many tournament-goers, number 17, the 190-yard par 3 that rounds out the three diabolical holes of the Bear Trap, will be action-and-celebration central, host to so much hospitality that it might as well be annexed to New Orleans. Its a tough and dramatic golf hole, too. And here are the helicopters, the X-2 Technology Demonstrator (twice as fast, they say, as conventional copters) and a mockup of the S-97 Raider, cour-tesy of Sikorsky Aircraft, a subsidiary of United Technologies and co-sponsor of the Military Appreciation Pavilion (the other is Wells Fargo Bank). Sikorsky uses the Raider mockup, it says, to demonstrate the military application of the breakthrough rotor-craft design.Ž Here, too, in the tournaments weekend rounds, are uniformed tenders of the stars-and-stripes pin flag, members of honor guards from all four services, in their best dress, accepting thank-yous and handshakes from the players. Such soldiers, now, seem laminated onto the PGA Tour. For Joe Brown, the sights and sounds are more personal, and ambiguous. The helicopters on 17, Brown knows, are war-birds, descendents of Bell Heli-copters Huey, Cobra and Kiowa gun-ships of Vietnam and the more recent Boeing-Hughes Apache Longbow, Boeing-Sikorsky Comanche and Sikorskys Blackhawk. As objects of power and precision and pelican-like grace, lurching up and soaring away, they can inspire awe and admiration. They can also provoke fear. In peace, helicopters carry tourists and television crews, medical trauma units and law enforcement personnel, soldiers on maneuvers, passengers on commercial flights. In war, the whirly-birds can transport and save and also rain fire ... and take fire themselves. For Tournament Director McEnroe, whose fire comes from other and wider quarters, military appreciation is a modest salute in a maelstrom of duties, from wooing corporate sponsors and satisfying the PGA and overseeing on-course construction to arranging food and beverage vending, providing trans-port and accommodations for players and officials and their families and setting up remote parking and shuttle buses for tournament-goers. The drive to do more, to be bigger and better, brings benefits and also headaches and challenges. A golf course, even a wide complex of courses such as PGA National, offers only so much land, and every new ini-tiative, new structure, new set of seats and booths and vendors means making accommodation with the many parties involved. Nowhere on The Champion does that focus fall more fully than the green at Number 16 and the tee and green on Number 17. Already, the area is nearly encircled by pavilions and platforms and sets of seats. Last year, we added 6,000 square feet,Ž McEnroe says. This year were going to add another 2,500 square feet, and its all going to be very strategic.Ž HONDAFrom page 1BROWN FLORIDA WEEKLY FILE PHOTOSgt.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 13-19, 2014 NEWS A9A golf course is mostly horizontal. Will this one have to start building UP? The 17th hole will have 25 percent more flooring and tenting out there, so were getting to the point where, youre right, well have to go up,Ž McEnroe says. But we think spectators, not just the high-end but everybody, will really enjoy the improvements.Ž Lukus Harvey, PGA Nationals Director of Agronomy, and The Champions head groundskeeper Andrew Fike and their combined crew are more con-cerned with drying out. Record rains hit the area starting in September, including a freakish six-and-a-half-inch burst on January 10, threatening not just the usually hardy Bermuda grass … TIF Eagle on the greens and TIF Sport, over-seeded with rye, on the fairways … but bunker complexes freshly overhauled this sum-mer. Working with Nicklaus Design, they had taken out 14 bunkers, added a greenside bunker at 16 and up-tilted others. Its been a challenging year,Ž Harvey says. We had to scramble, a lot of heavy lifting, a lot of manual labor. We had to rescue a few bunkers, but theyve held up well. Lately weve had some nice, dry, cool weather, and the rye is lovin it and the greens are great.Ž McEnroe and Harvey work as part of a large team in their own chains-of-command, McEnroe for long-time Honda Classic head Ken Kennerly, who sold his IGP Sports & Entertainment to IMG Worldwides Golf Division and took over its North American Events entity, and Harvey for Century Golf Partners. At PGA National, General Manager Kathy Blazer and Property Managing Director Joel Paige continue to oversee golf courses and facilities. And, as McEnroe says, the tournament also relies on help from Palm Beach County, the city of Palm Beach Gardens and their sheriffs and police depart-ments. It all has to mesh well together, and communication with everyone involved is critical,Ž McEnroe says. On the unpaid end of the power structure, Jim Coleman leads an army of his own: more than 1,600 volunteers in multiple committees. That includes some 450 marshals, ball-spotters with Shotlink lasers, standard-bearers and walking scorers, policing talkers and cell phones and cameras and mobile devices, keeping the peace and protect-ing the players. For Coleman, every new sponsor, every added attrac-tion, every hike in attendance means more pressure on his troops and more reward for what matters most. As the son of, as he says, a career pilot in the service, a full-bird colonel,Ž he sees the Hondas military apprecia-tion initiatives as vital. My fathers sacrifice was giving up his family for 25 years,Ž Coleman says. We were lucky. His plane could have gone down. Im an electrical contractor, and were actually doing a project up at Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethes-da, Maryland. When I go on-base there, I meet guys missing limbs, guys walk-ing on prosthetics, things we would think of as horrific. Its an eye-opener. Every time I go up there I get choked up. And you gotta treat em like normal people. They appreciate that so much more than anything else.Ž Visits to another group, though, inspire him most: children dealing with life-threatening illness. Jack and Barbara Nicklaus and family and their childrens health charities were part of the Honda even before it moved to PGA National in 2007. To show the importance, Coleman takes his committee heads on tours of Nick-laus Childrens Hospital in West Palm Beach. Its highly emotional for me,Ž he says. I mean, seeing some of these kids, some of the stuff theyve had to go through, and they wouldnt be alive today because they couldnt afford the healthcare to make that change of life.Ž Military appreciation is more recent. Spurred by the PGAs efforts tour-wide, aided by corporate sponsors, the Honda Classic offered its first Patriots Outpost and military appreciations in 2011, and the staff wanted to walk a careful line. What the Honda Classic and the PGA are doing, McEnroe says, is much-needed and welcomed. They are also, unavoidably, riding an increasingly loud band wagon, one theyd like to steer clear of politics and exploitation. You get a lot of public advertisements about what were doing for the military, our sponsors in bringing it to the community, PR value, advertis-ing,Ž he says, but we try to work at the grassroots level to talk to those veterans. You wont see a big military ceremony. Itll be relatively low-key. Its more for us to ensure that they feel appreciated, and not as much about the fly-overs and grandstanding.Ž A host of military-support initiatives will play out over The Champions grounds at the Honda Classic: € Free admission (with an extra ticket for a companion) and free lunch and beverage service for active-duty mili-tary, dependents, reservists and veter-ans in the expanded United Technolo-gies-Pratt & Whitney-Sikorsky Patriots Outpost overlooking the 17th hole; € Commemorative tournament hats to veterans and flag pins to the first 2,000 ticket-holders through the gates on Military Appreciation Day, Thurs-day, Feb. 27; € Free golf lessons for disabled and vision-impaired veterans through Bird-ies for the Brave, donating $100 for every birdie on 17, and the First Tee; € Wounded Warrior Caddie for a Day, giving wounded veterans a chance to caddie for a tour pro on the 17th hole during the pro-am on Wednesday, Feb. 26, and Club Fitting, fitting them for a new set of Callaway Clubs; € Free golf lessons to disabled veterans through the First Tee and Adaptive Sports. Tournament proceeds also support the Fisher House, which houses and supports family members visiting wounded and distressed and recover-ing loved ones in the Veterans Admin-istration hospital in West Palm Beach. Thats all welcome, Command Sergeant Major Brown says. But the Hon-das greatest, most lasting benefit for veterans, he says, is the chance to join a community crowd and visit with each other, away from posing or pressures. While national hire-a-veteran campaigns seem to be pushing down job-less rates (now at about 6.6 percent), veterans returning from combat zones, especially, Brown says, often struggle to readjust. You wouldnt think you would hear about soldiers being homeless, but there are homeless soldiers,Ž he says. Once they come home theres no work, then they end up on a corner somewhere in some suburban under-pass or some metropolitan side-street, homeless and out of work. So there are some significant challenges. And the (most) overwhelming is our suicides. Its just unbelievable.Ž In the last 10 years alone, the Department of Veterans Affairs estimates more than 147,000 suicides among veterans, then suggests the number is vastly underreported. The age group most affected is Browns own, though the causes arent clear. A New York Times report last year cited a rate of nearly one a day among active duty personnel. When we have programs and events like the Honda Classic where it helps soldiers and families reconnect to their communities,Ž he says, I think its an extraordinary and worthwhile under-taking.Ž While he might appreciate managements enthusiasm over the announce-ment that Ketel One has signed on as the official vodka of the Honda Classic, Brown will not, he says, be shouldering a place at a bar in the distillers hos-pitality pavilion above the 17th green. He WILL be spending a fair amount of time, though, at the Patriots Outpost, a few steps away. There, he says, soldiers and veterans and their families can visit and relax. And he will be out on the course, where he can admire the skill and com-posure and celebrity of some of the best golfers in the world. He hopes, among other things, he says, that support from an event like the Honda can spur more soldiers, active-duty and veterans, and their loved ones to talk about their experi-ences, including the long departures and stresses of service and of combat on physical and emotional well-being and on families. From his home in North Miami Beach, Nicolas J. SandyŽ Davies watch-es the military tributes of tournaments such as the Honda and the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship at nearby Doral the following week with grave concern. As the author of Blood on Our Hands: the American Invasion and Destruction of Iraq,Ž his voice is among the few openly questioning the effects of initiatives labeled military apprecia-tion.Ž Why,Ž he asks, in an email, does the military need to work so hard and spend so much money to maintain such a carefully-crafted popular image? I would answer that it gets two things from all this: record funding for wars and preparation for future wars, and a steady stream of recruits … our children and grandchildren. Ideally, displays of military helicopters at golf tournaments should be bal-anced by warnings about the dangers and risks of war and military service. Pharmaceutical marketing campaigns are required to include disclaimers, but military ones are not. So the PGA is lending its support to a deceptive marketing campaign designed to make us feel good about spending trillions of our tax dollars on weapons and war, and to hand over our sons and daugh-ters without asking tough questions and demanding honest answers about what they are signing up for.Ž Command Sergeant Major Brown signed on to the U.S. Army Reserves in 1978, from his childhood home in Vero Beach. A young man during that day, you had two options,Ž he says. You were either going to hang around at home or go into the military. You wasnt going to sit at my moms table and not do anything. So I took the other route.Ž Since then, he has seen a great shift in what he calls awareness,Ž an under-standing and appreciation for soldiers and the Army and Army reservists, not as much in politics as at the personal and community end. I guess most of the awareness came due to 9-11,Ž he says. It moved us from, you know, I wont get into any political aspects of it, but it moved us honestly from this weekend-warrior kind of mentality, thats all they do, they go to weekend drills and thats all, Now, we are an intricate link and support to the SEE HONDA, 10 X FLORIDA WEEKLY FILE PHOTOTiger Woods at last year’s Honda Classic.

Weve really transformed the way people look at our Army, the way the people look at our military forces.Ž A frequent flier, he has his own travel story. I was in the Boston airport, in the bathroom, washing my hands, and I hear my full name called over the loudspeaker, Joseph Brown report to the desk,Ž he says. So I scurried to the counter, and theres this gentleman standing there, insisting that I take his first class seat. Just the support, and the awareness, and people just consistently time and time again showing support for soldiers and their families....Ž War, he would agree, is rarely a solution, especially these days, in the complex mix of global politics and reli-gions. And combat is not a video game. Service, though, is, he says, an honor and a privilege.Ž Its also an obligation, one that extends to soldiers families and particularly to his own. Among the soldiers Command Sergeant Major Brown has commanded is Sgt. Johnny Harris of Okeechobee. His step-son. I raised him,Ž Brown says. Hes in logistics, so, no, he aint been in combat. But hes on the combat field. We talk about it. While youre there, you have to keep your mental state, consistently, every day. Paths are still being hit with RPGs (rocket-propelled grenades), every day. So youre on high alert at all times. I just tell him, con-tinue to be vigilant. I tell him to make know, we have what we call NCO Creeds, a binding set of bylaws that he must abide by if hes going to lead todays soldiers. I remind him about what the creed says about never leave a fallen comrade, always keep yourself mentally and physically tough, always conduct yourself the right way.Ž Joe Brown might wonder what soldiers posted overseas think when the Honda Classics care packages (from the Care Package Station) and a five-by-12-foot banner with hand-written messages (from the We Salute Our Heroes Wall) reach them in harms way. Probably pretty bleeping good, he figures. He knows his stepson would appreciate them. He might also wonder at the mix of the military, with its requirements for obedience and teamwork, and the indi-vidually centered game of golf. Getting real about war, author Tim OBrien says, is a tough slog. In his book The Things They Carried,Ž OBrien chronicles the thoughts and experiences of Americans fighting and dying in Vietnam. Of war itself, he wrote, War is hell, but thats not the half of it, because war is also mystery and terror and adventure and courage and discovery and holiness and pity and despair and longing and love. War is nasty; war is fun. War is thrilling; war is drudgery. War makes you a man; war makes you dead.Ž He also wrote this: If at the end of a war story you feel uplifted, or if you feel that some small bit of rectitude has been salvaged from the larger waste, then you have been made the victim of a very old and terrible lie. There is no rectitude whatsoever. There is no virtue. As a first rule of thumb, there-fore, you can tell a true war story by its absolute and uncompromising alle-giance to obscenity and evil.Ž War is waged, of course, as Dwight Eisenhower has said, by politicians, and suffered by soldiers. The innocent suf-fer, too. Professional golf, historically, has refrained from military reference. Leave that to the full-contact team sports. A golfer, like other athletes, might be called a warrior,Ž but he or she hits each shot alone, across sylvan landscapes amid lavish facilities. Still, an observer can point out that, on a course such as the Hondas Cham-pion, PGA tour players are never alone, starting with their caddies and assigned officials and volunteers. Many players refer to their team,Ž coaches, trainers, physical therapists, motivators. All of them have friends and family. Even out there, Joe Brown thinks of family, too. With his mothers influence, he put himself in and served. Then he watched his step-son, Johnny Harris, sign on with the Reserves and end up in Afghanistan. Only a few weeks ago, he watched Sgt. Harris leave again for a second tour. They keep in touch, every week, by phone, and Johnny connects with his wife and child by Skype every day. I worry about him, yes,Ž Brown says. Im proud of him.Ž Now, as ever, Brown is looking forward. Out at the Honda,Ž he says, everyone is just so genuine and gra-cious. I just plan to enjoy myself.Ž The Command Sergeant Major expects that when Johnny comes home to his family from Afghanistan this summer, hell find a welcome even the Honda Classic might envy.

ArtiGras easily is one of northern Palm Beach Countys biggest draws, both for artists and buyers. Each year, patrons look forward to the ArtiGras poster, for which artists com-pete to design. Last year, the ArtiGras committee chose artist Paul Seamans painting of a coconut palm for the poster. This year, Jupiter artist Kelly Tracht won out over the traditional landand seascapes with her image of a sailfish soaring over a group of maritime signal flags that spell out Jupiter.Ž Her work also appeared on the cover of the Junior League of the Palm Beaches cookbook Worth Tasting,Ž a book that she named, helped research, write and conceptual-ize. She also exhibited at Blooming-dales 2007 Artrageous event, and in 2012, received the Presidents Purchase Award at SunFest. Theres a certain charm to the local festival, which had its roots near the site of what is now The Gardens Mall. It keeps people coming back, both to shop and to work. Ive been involved with them for seven years, but I was a volunteer prior for three or four years,Ž Mr. Auville said. After all, it is his business. Mr. Auvilles company, Standing Ovations LLC, has worked with an array of clients, including Scripps Florida, FPL, Downtown at the Gardens, the city of West Palm Beach, The Loggerhead Triathlon, ArtFest by the Sea and the city of Pompano Beach. Before forming Standing Ovations in 2005, Mr. Auville was event planner for SunFest. He keeps coming back to ArtiGras.I love it. Its a great, great show. The one wonderful thing about the chamber is that theyre such great supporters of the arts. They do give back to the com-munity and to Palm Beach County. We all have to pitch in, and to me they do such a wonderful job of doing that,Ž he said. Proceeds from ArtiGras benefit about 40 local and private schools through the ArtiGras Art Education Foundation; it has raised about $500,000 since 1995. The arts, now, it suffers. Theres no cash out there, so were able to give back to our teachers. We try to do as much as we can to support the arts, which is very important to me,Ž he said. His favorite time at ArtiGras?This is what I do as a career, so I love the set-up,Ž he said. Yes, but is there anything special the rest of the public might enjoy? We do a youth arts awards ceremony on Saturday and thats when Mom and Dad see Susies drawing in the tent and we present the awards,Ž he said. More than 200 pieces were submitted to the contest and will be on display all weekend in the Youth Art Competition Gallery. There also is a hidden gem.One thing we do a really good job with is our ArtiKids Area. This year, its theme is going to be Under the Oceans. Youll be able to create starfish and make shark tooth necklaces. We have 10 organizations working with us,Ž Mr. Auville said. Its tucked away, though.Its hidden, but its near the stage and we have some great nonprofits that come together to do hands-on activities with the kids. Mom and Dad can partici-pate and its all free,Ž he said. Thats a highlight of this festival, but because of how the site is laid out they dont see it right off the bat when they get there,Ž he said. Now, for the big question: Does Mr. Auville participate in any of those hands-on activities? I love art. Im not an artist, but I love art. No way.

THE SH-BOOMS Our cold, dead handsThe semi-obscure Florida Statute 790.15 took center stage in January fol-lowing a Miami Herald report of a resident of the town of Big Pine Key who routinely target-shoots his handgun in his yard, with impunity, to the consternation of neighbors. The statute permits open firing on private property (except shoot-ing over a public right of way or an occu-pied dwelling), and several cities have tried, unsuccessfully, to restrict that right, citing public safetyŽ in residential neighborhoods. (A 2011 lobbying campaign by the National Rifle Association, and a state supreme court decision, nixed any change in the law.) NegligentŽ shooting is illegal, but only a misdemeanor. Thus, even skillful shooting next door to a day care center or in a small yard that abuts a high-trafficked pedestrian street is likely perfectly legal. One Florida legislator who was originally from Alaska noted that even in Anchorage people cannot fire at will in their yards.Cultural diversityQ South Korea is a well-known hub for cosmetic beautification surgery, with a higher rate per capita than the U.S., but the procedures can be expensive, inspiring many young women recently to resort to do-it-yourself procedures for their professional and romantic upgrades. A December Global Post dis-patch noted that some might try to force their eyes to stay open without blinking (using a novel $20 pair of glasses for hours on end) as a substitute for costly double-eyelidŽ surgery. Also in use: a $6 jaw-squeezing roller device for the face to push the jaw line into a fashionable ovalŽ form. One teen told the reporter she applies an imaginative contraption to her face for hours a day to pressure her nose into more of a point, which is considered a desirable Western look.Q In December, thieves in Wicklow, Ireland, raided a convents field at the Domin-ican Farm and Ecology Center, stripping it of its entire crop of Brussels sprouts. A nun at the farm said the sisters were dev-astated to miss out on the lucrative market for high-end Christmas dinners. Q The French social security agency URSSAF initiated an enforcement action in December against the Mamm-Kounifl music bar in the town of Locmiquelic for underpaying employee contribu-tions „ in that the tavern encourages customers to bus their own tables and thus reduces its need to hire more serv-ers. The owner denied he was trying to save money. Its (just) our trademark. We want the customer to feel comfort-able, a bit like hes at home.ŽQuestionable judgmentsQ From the birth register of Elkhart (Ind.) General Hospital, reported by The Elkhart Truth, Jan. 19, 2014: Tamekia Burks, Elkhart, daughter (named LaSoulja Major LaPimp Burks, 6 lbs., 8 oz.), 3:20 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2014.ŽQ The makers of a product called PooPourri garnered a covetedŽ advertising award from USA TODAY in December as one of the five worst ads of the year. Toilet users concerned about smell are encour-aged to spray Poo-Pourri on the commode, pre-use, and in the television ad, a British-accented female sits on the throne, extol-ling the product. Opening line: You would not believe the mother lode I just dropped.Ž (Nonetheless, USA TODAY still found two other ads that upset its editors more.)The continuing crisisQ Nelson Thabo Modupe threatened a lawsuit in January against South Afri-cas Eskom electric utility unless the company paid him the equivalent of about $22.3 million for savingŽ the firm that amount during the weeks of the 2010 Soccer World Cup. Modupe reasoned that he had joined the Zion Christian Church just before the event and had prayed (successfullyŽ) to God to spare the utility from blackouts and power reductions during that period (which would have cost Eskom millions more). Modupe, open to negotiation, said he would accept a partnership in the company as a compromise. Q Tyler Smith, 23, was charged in December with violating the city animal care ordinance in Greenville, S.C., after a photograph was posted on Facebook of his fathers dog being lowered by rope from the second-story balcony of an apartment. According to the posting, it was time for the dog to make a call of nature, but it was raining, and Mr. Smith preferred not to go downstairs with him.PerspectiveThree million Americans are infected with hepatitis C (as are millions more overseas), but a very recent drug, Soval-di, completely cures it with 84 daily doses. However, its manufacturer, Gil-ead Sciences, has somehow determined that a fair U.S. price for the drug should be $1,000 per pill ($84,000 for the total treatment). Shouldnt Gilead reduce the price once it has recouped its expensive investment, asked an NPR reporter in December? Thats very unlikely we would do that,Ž said Gileads Gregg Alton, but I appreciate the thought.Ž (According to NPR, Gilead developedŽ Sovaldi merely by buying Sovaldis actu-al developer for $11 billion. At $84,000 per patient, Gilead would recoupŽ that investment from the first 150,000 cus-tomers, leaving 2.85 million more U.S. patients to pay $84,000 each, for an income of $239 billion.)

A24 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 13-19, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYEmpathize with your loved ones, and make it Valentine’s Day all yearThe Valentines bouquet was the most exquisite arrangement Jane had ever seen. But she found herself sadly unmoved when the flowers arrived. If truth be told, perhaps she was also feeling a bit resentful. She knew that Todds secretary had probably called the florist to place the order, so how much thought had he really put into the gesture? Todd had informed her that morning that they were going to Renzos, the hottest restaurant in town, for din-ner. But, even this overture had little impact. Lately, Jane had been feeling increasingly more removed from her marriage. Although Todd repeatedly claimed that he loved her, the words seemed hollow. Todd was so consumed with the demands of his business he paid little attention to his family. And given any time off from work, she was sure he preferred working out with his trainer to spending time alone with his wife. Jane had explained to Todd over and over that she needed more of an emo-tional connection with him, but her pleas had fallen on deaf ears. Either that, or Todd just didnt get it. No, Jane was not in the mood to celebrate a romantic evening with her husband. Not with the way things had been. Another year has passed, and Valentines Day is upon us. Valentines Day is the one occasion thats guaranteed to provoke a visceral response. And, depending upon ones vantage point, these emotions can be quite intense. Yes, some romantics look forward to Valentines Day as a sentimental opportunity to express heartfelt emo-tions to their special person. But, so many others may feel pressure to put into words feelings they may or may not have. Lonely singles often curse the day that accentuates their frustra-tions, and understandably may count the hours until February 15th. Still oth-ers may be grieving a deep loss, and Valentines Day may seem like a cruel reminder of this wound. And, of course, we know there are always the cynics who proclaim that Valentines Day has become a com-mercialized conspiracy imposed on the public by retailers, restaurants and greeting card companies, obligat-ing them to spend way too much in an attempt to please their sometimes unappreciative and underwhelmed partners. So, what do we do if we are hurt, angry or bored in our relationships? Certainly, we have every right to assume the problems are irrevers-ible, or the fault is solely with the other person. We may be justified „ and we may actu-ally be right „ but this truth will rarely bring resolution. If we want to become close to our significant others we have to be open to examining our roles in the conflicts. It doesnt mean were to blame „ it just means we may have the ability from our end to make changes that will potentially initiate positive momentum. Most of us intuitively know the very things we can say or do to bring a pleased smile to our partners face. However, far too many of us carry a laundry list of perceived and real complaints so we stubbornly withhold the very things that could make a construc-tive difference. If our partners have seemed preoccupied or aloof, there may be discomfort about expressing sentiments that may leave us feeling needy or exposed. If our partners have been critical, we may feel too wounded to show affection. But, perhaps, just perhaps, we may be willing to reach out differently, with the distinct purpose of changing the negativity. Are we able to push through our feelings to put ourselves in their shoes? Empathy means we listen carefully and try to see the world through the other persons eyes. The key here is we dont have to agree with each other. We just have to communicate that we respect the others point of view. Are we able to still treat our loved ones with respect, even though we feel frus-trated or annoyed with them? If were not in a place where we can be forthcoming with compliments or other shows of endearment, perhaps we can make a commitment to refrain from the snarky, petty comments that are designed to show our partners how much we hurt. Sadly, these comments are intimacy killers, and sabotage any hopes we have for reconciliation. We demonstrate our commitment towards effecting positive change when we make a concerted effort to give our partners our undivided atten-tion, and by showing interest in what matters to them. That means shut-ting off all technology and wiping the bored looks off our faces. A phone call or a text during the day for no apparent reason, other than to say hello, means the world to a person who has been feeling unappreciated. What all of this may reveal to our loved ones is how important they are to us. Most of us crave relationships that promise safety and securit y„where we know well be accepted without criticism or scorn. We should never underestimate the power of creating relationships that feel accepting and secure. Q „ Linda Lipshutz, M.S., LCSW, is a psychotherapist serving individuals, couples and families.

New substance abuse treatment resources focus on teensResources to help parents, health care providers, and substance abuse treat-ment specialists treat teens struggling with drug abuse, as well as identify and interact with those who might be at risk, were recently released by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. NIDA is part of the National Institutes of Health. Adolescents drug use, as well as their treatment needs, differ from those of adults. Teens abuse different substanc-es, experience different consequences, and are less likely to seek treatment on their own because they may not want or think they need help. Parents can work with health-care professionals to find appropriate treatment, but they may be unaware that the teen is using drugs and needs help. According to the 2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, only 10 percent of 12to 17-year-olds needing substance abuse treatments receive any services. Because critical brain circuits are still developing during the teen years, this age group is particularly susceptible to drug abuse and addiction,Ž said NIDA Director Dr. Nora D. Volkow. These new resources are based on recent research that has greatly advanced our understanding of the unique treatment needs of the adolescent.Ž A new online publication, Principles of Adolescent Substance Use Disorder Treatment: A Research Based Guide, describes the treatment approaches. Highlights include: Q Thirteen principles to consider in treating adolescent substance use dis-orders Q Frequently asked questions about adolescent drug use Q Settings in which adolescent drug abuse treatment most often occurs Q Evidence-based approaches to treating adolescent substance use dis-orders Q The role of the family and medical professionals in identifying teen sub-stance use and supporting treatment and recovery. To increase early screening of adolescent substance abuse, The Substance Use Disorder in Adolescents: Screen-ing and Engagement in Primary Care Settings educational module was cre-ated. The online curriculum resource for medical students and resident phy-sicians provides videos demonstrating skills to use in screening adolescents at risk for or already struggling with sub-stance use disorders. Both the patient and physician perspectives are high-lighted. Although created as a training tool, the resource is also free to anyone in the public seeking information on how to interact with teens at risk for addiction.

ADVERTISEMENT Ask The Health & Beauty Experts ASK THE COSMETIC SURGEON The muscles of your face have the important task of expressing your feelings to other people. From smiling to scowling, a simple expression can convey a world of information. When these muscles become paralyzed, the consequences can b e drastic. Beyond loss of expression, issues such as drying of the eye and drooling can occur. Facial paralysis occurs after damage to the facial nerve. This can occur after an infection such as Bell’s palsy, after traumatic injuries, from cancers along the course of the nerve and other less common reasons. The cause and timing since injury is important for treatment. We try to p romote recovery with medication and exercises, b ut sometimes the damage can be permanent. Some surgical options involve using nerve tissue bridges to bring nerve impulses back to the muscles. When this is not an option, we address different regions of the face with various surgical techniques. If the eye will not close, a weight implant in the upper lid will allow gravity to help shut the eye. If the side of the the mouth droops, transferring a muscle attachment from the jaw to the corner of the mouth will restore support and mimic a smile. The options are complex and are determined on a case by case basis. If you suspect an issues with the facial nerve, contact a physician as soon as possible. If there are any issues with complete recovery, please call my office to schedule an appointment to review your reconstructive issues.

Dr. Lipan resides in Palm Beach Gardens with his wife and their two daughters. Question: I need dental implants, but my dentist said I need sinus-lift surgery first. Is this always needed? Answer: Molar teeth are often lost due to decay, infection or failed root canals. Once one or more molars are lost, patients find it difficult to chew their food properly. When upper back teeth are lost, bone is lost too. Simultaneously, the maxillary sinuses often dip down leaving inadequate bone for dental implant placement. With the modern technology used today, 3-D digital CT scans reveal if you actually need sinus lift surgery. The scan will accurately show the implant dentist how much bone is present while precisely revealing the proximity of the maxillary sinuses. Sinus lift surgery consists of elevating the floor of the sinus and adding bone-graft material through a small opening made where the tooth used to be or from the side via a small access under the gum. Sinus lift surgery dramatically increases bone volume to support dental implants and is one the most successful forms of bone grafting. Dental implants can replace one or multiple missing back teeth, allowing patients to chew their food properly as if they had their natural teeth. ASK THE DENTAL EXPERT Jay L.

Although heart disease is often thought of as a health problem for men, more women than men die of heart dis-ease each year. An estimated 42 million American women live with cardiovas-cular disease, but many are unaware of the threat they face. One challenge is that heart disease symptoms in women can be different from symptoms in men. Fortunately, women can take steps to understand their unique symptoms of heart disease and begin to reduce their risk. Women can reduce their chances of heart disease by taking these actions: € Know your blood pressure.€ Dont smoke.€ Get tested for diabetes.€ Get your cholesterol and triglyceride levels checked. € Maintain a healthy weight.€ Find healthy ways to cope with stress by talking to your friends, exer-cising or writing in a journal. Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center has joined forces with the American Heart Association Go Red For Women initiative to improve womens heart health. The facts surrounding women and heart disease are clear. More women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined. However, Go Red For Women has been impacting the health of women since its earliest days. Over the past 10 years, more than 627,000 women have been saved from heart disease. Currently, heart disease and stroke are the No. 1 and No. 4 kill-ers, respectively, of American men and women. What is Go Red For Women?Go Red For Women is the American Heart Associations national movement to end heart disease in women. What is Palm Beach Gardens Medical Centers sponsorship with Go Red For Women? Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center has joined forces with the American Heart Association, South Florida, as the organizations Presenting Sponsor for the Go Red For Women campaign. Through this initiative, our employees and physicians will participate in all aspects of the Go Red For Women cam-paign supporting research, education and community programs. We recently celebrated National Wear Red Day on Feb. 7 to raise awareness in the fight against heart disease in women. This collaboration confirms Palm Beach Gar-dens Medical Centers commitment to bringing cardiac excellence to our com-munity.

To register, call 561-625-5070. The event is from 8-11 a.m. at the Man-del Jewish Community Center in Palm Beach Gardens.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE WEEK OF FEBRUARY 13-19, 2014 A27 BEWARE THE BULLIESSEE IT, A39 X SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThere has been much in the news lately about bullying between team-mates on the Miami Dolphins. And by all accounts, its an ugly situation „ the team in disarray, sponsors canceling contracts, season ticket holders cancel-ing tickets, the Dolphin brand becoming a punch line for comedians jokes, and an overall loss of value for the franchise. And thats not even taking into account the potential for destroying careers. But to my mind, the real story is that so many people are surprised by it,Ž says Bill McBean, author of The Facts of Business Life: What Every Success-ful Business Owner Knows That You Dont.Ž Im not surprised, and neither should the NFL, franchise owners, or their executives be,Ž Mr. McBean says, adding the only thing that does surprise him is that it took so long for a bullying story to become public. Bullying is a real problem in the business world, he says, and it can happen in any business. The author outlines several different kinds of bully-ing that business owners should know how to deal with: Q Customers bullying employees … Whoever said the customer is always right was wrong, he says. Part of every business owners job is to protect his or her employees, and that includes protecting them from abusive customers. The owner must let the customer know that he or she is upset-ting the employee and, if necessary, must be willing to fire the customer. Once youve done it, it sends a message to your employees that youre a leader they can count on to look after them,Ž Mr. McBean points out. It also shows any bullies on the staff that if youre willing to fire a customer, you might be willing to fire them as well.Ž Q Owners bullying employees … A skunk stinks from the head down, and if the owner is a bully, it sets the stage for the rest of the staff to act the same way. And they will. Whenever Ive wanted to hire experienced employees, Ive always found one of the most fertile plac-es to look are companies where the owner is a bully, because good employees always want to escape,Ž Mr. McBean says. Q Managers or supervisors bullying employees … Like the owners role, managements role is to show leadership, create controls and pro-cesses, motivate, educate and devel-op an environment in which every-one can succeed. Q Employees bullying each other … As in the case with the Dolphins, owners and managers who allow their employees to bully other employees create a problem for the whole orga-nization. It shows management weak-ness, and an uncaring attitude toward the staff that creates an environment where teamwork and safe working con-ditions are foreign concepts, dissatisfied employees are common, and success is uncommon. Q Employees bullying managers and owners … This happens a lot more often than you might think, the author says. Management is often under pressure to produce results, and because of that, they sometimes allow high producers to dictate how a business is operated. But you cant let the tail wag the dog, and if a company is going to be success-ful in the long run, you must have the courage to push back,Ž he says. This isnt a complete bully list„ just some of the more common ways it can happen in your business,Ž McBean concludes. And believe me, no one is immune to it. At the same time, the actions Ive suggested arent always easy to do. But doing them is important, because it separates the great „ and most prof-itable „ owners from the average ones.ŽAbout the authorMr. McBean is a featured contributor for The Huff-ington Post and Business 2 Community. A graduate of the University of Saskatch-ewan in Saskatoon, and Mount Royal College in Calgary, Alberta, he began his career with General Motors of Canada Limited in 1976 and in 1981 accepted a position with the Bank of Nova Scotia as manager of a sizeable commercial lending portfolio. Two years later, GM approached him about opening a new automobile dealership in Yorkton, Saskatchewan. He began his first business as a start-upŽ the following year, with 10 employees. Over the next decade, the dealership became one of the most profitable GM dealerships in the region. In 1992, Mr. McBean and a partner purchased an automotive deal-ership in Corpus Christi, Texas, and over the next 11 years acquired a large portion of the market share from their competitors. In 2003, their company was purchased by AutoNation. Mr. McBean is general partner of McBean Partners, a family-owned investment company. He is also part-ner and chairman of Our-Mentors, a company that works with owners to improve their businesses for long-term success.

Its set by law as the third Monday of Febru-ary. But its officially called Washing-tons BirthdayŽ by the federal govern-ment. George Washingtons Birthday, a national holiday, used to be celebrated on Feb. 22. Abraham Lincolns birthday was Feb. 12 and was not a federal holi-day. Washingtons Birthday celebration was moved as part of 1971s Uniform Monday Holiday Act, an attempt to add more three-day weekends to the annual calendar. The holiday was not officially renamed Presidents Day because Con-gress could not agree on changing the name, but the day was said to also honor Lincoln and other presidents. While some states still celebrate indi-vidual holidays honoring the birthdays of Washington and Lincoln, most states stick with Presidents Day even though thats not the holidays legal name. For many people, the holiday becomes a day off work and one with great sales, espe-cially of new cars. While there are vir-tually no souvenirs of Presidents Day, there are many pictures, pieces of pot-tery, textiles, pieces of furniture, medals, coins, signs and other advertising, sheet music, toys and much more to collect if the memory of George Washington or Abraham Lincoln is your focus. Q: We have a wooden filing cabinet that has a flat work surface with two cupboard doors below and drawers above. There are 15 small drawers over six larger drawers with brass plates for labels and a horizontal glass door on top. There is a brass plate on top that says Yawman & Erbe Mfg. Co., Rochester, N.Y.Ž The drawer pulls have a logo with Y and EŽ on them. Can you give me an idea of the value of this piece? A: Philip H. Yawman and Gustav Erbe start-ed working in partner-ship in 1880. At first they made micro-scopes, but they soon began manufacturing specialty equipment for other companies. In 1898 they began mak-ing and selling office equipment under the name Yawman & Erbe Manufacturing Co. The company held several patents for fil-ing systems and other office equipment and was one of the larg-est producers of office furniture and equipment in the world in the early 1900s. Your filing cabinet would sell for $500 to $800. Q: While cleaning out a storage area in the home where my husband and his brothers were raised, we found a box of old board games dating back to the 1930s and early 40s. Most are in good shape with all of their pieces. We wonder if they have any value. The games include Monopoly, Dog Race, Touring Auto, Game of Football and Baseball, and some card games like Pit and Rook.A: Since the games are in good condition and have all their pieces, you have to take a look at their copyright dates and editions „ an early date and edition is usu-ally more valuable than later ones. Some games are rarer than others, too, and a game that relates to football and baseball also appeals to sports collectors. You can find books on col-lectible games at your library and bookstore. You also can find prices and some photos of col-lectible games online, including on our website, And you can join the Association of Game & Puzzle Collectors,, which publishes a quarterly newsletter for collectors. Q: I have an antique chandelier with lots of glass prisms. It is dusty and I am afraid to clean it. Any suggestions? A: If you are worried about electric shock, turn off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel. A hairdryer set on low heat can sometimes be used to blow away any dust. There are some liquid sprays on the market that are made to clean glass chandeliers. Look for one at a nearby home improvement or hard-ware store. Follow the directions care-fully. The spray drip-dries the glass, and the dirt is gone. If you are brave, you could take a picture of the chandelier, then remove all the prisms and other drops, as well as larger glass globes and parts and carefully load them into the dishwasher to be cleaned on gentle cycle. Use the picture as a guide to put-ting it all back together. We like to do jobs like this as part of a team because you will need help taking things apart while standing on a ladder. Good luck. Tip: Bakelite jewelry was cast, not molded, so there are never seams or mold lines. Q „ Kim and Terry Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

The picture of the president is a ferrotype (a photograph, often called a tintype, made on a thin sheet of iron) mounted in a 5/8-by-1/2-inch brass frame hung on an eagle-shaped hanger. The badge could be pinned on a suit or a dress. Heritage Auctions of Dallas sold it for $1,375 in November 2013.

Relationships and money Money is obviously an integral part of daily living. Were occupied with its accumulation, safeguarding, investing and spending. To suggest that money will not be an integral part of a romantic relation-ship is somewhere between denial and fantasy. It is as integral to a relationship as is sex, character, communication, com-panionship, health and a shared walk of faith. In a healthy, loving relationship, people want to know that they are valued above and beyond the emotion of love. As money is a store of value, how we use money is an expression of what we truly value. This concept is not unique to the Christian faith, but it is well expressed in the New Testament: For wherever your treasure is, there your heart will be also.Ž Most marriages fail if the spouse says, I love you... but I have no sexual interest in you,Ž or I love you... but I will not help you with your burdens,Ž or I love you... but I am unwilling to say nice things to youŽ or I love you... but I am too busy with work or sports to spend time with you.Ž Similarly, saying, I love you... but I am unwilling to demonstrate your value in financial aspects,Ž is equally destruc-tive. An all inŽ relationship that excludes valuing a person in such ways just doesnt work. Unquestionably, one way that we express a love commitment is by commit-ting financial value to those relationships. This is not just the case in marriages and romantic relationships, but also in raising children, in caring for parents, in support-ing churches and charities etc. There are extremes to financial giving „ all versus none. For example, for those who keep their finances under no lock and no key, then their financial shar-ing is indiscriminate „ their spending on and investing in another does not convey value since money is spent on anything and every thing the other person wants. The other extreme is the person who keeps all under lock and key, and while that person feels the emotion of love, there is a failure to demon-strate it in this criti-cal way. What is more worrisome than those who do not use their wealth to demonstrate their love, are those with hidden agendas with regards to finances. Some (both male and female) have hidden intents to use others to accumulate their wealth. Extreme examples are those who plot a marriage for financial purposes. We all have heard expressions such as: She married him for his money.Ž In this new age of women having wealth, we some-times hear, He didnt have a penny; it is all her money.Ž Sometimes there is not a conscious agenda to accumulate wealth through marriage, but in the rapture of courting, a lesser wealthy person might develop feelings of emotional attachment and sexual interest and genuinely, but mistak-enly, characterize it as love. And possibly the other person used his/her wealth to intentionally create that attraction. But not all age disparity marriages, all economic disparity marriages, etc. have wealth accumulation or wealth baiting as a foundation. The best couples face money issues in a positive and proactive fashion before the issues consume their relationship. For those couples who are coming together as one or who are already committed as one, then here are some suggestions: Q Be able to talk openly about money. Communications about sex and money are possibly two of the most difficult issues for couples to discuss. Many a spouse just refuses to discuss sex; and similarly, many a spouse just doesnt know how to discuss money. The fact that it might be difficult or cause differences of opinion does not mean that it should be avoided. It is the elephant in the room that either stomps all over your relation-ship or is escorted to the sidelines. Q Accept the fact that not everyone will have the same ideas about money, as many are formulated in childhood or through traumatic experiences. So if you are a couple both aged 27, then remember there are 27 years of money and security and lifestyle experiences before you met each other. If you are coming together at age 65, there are a heck of a lot more experiences. Q Move toward mutual understandings about money „ saving, spending, giving, inheritances, etc., as best as pos-sible. When you cant agree, then agree to disagree, and kiss and keep on going. One of the parties usually has more capacity to bend but one person doing all the bending is not a healthy relationship and often engenders bitterness. Q Identify those aspects of money relationships that will break a relation-shipƒ and why not? Many a couple is upfront that certain specific behaviors will have them walk out the door: infidel-ity, lying, the mother-in-law moving in. Just be clear about what you absolutely need as minimal money behavior dos and donts. The good part about free adviceŽ is that you, the reader, dont have to take it; but there just might be one concept con-tained in this column that has a positive application to your love life.

Thank God, we say in unison, Valen-tines Day only comes once a year. But this time, thanks to a recent conversation with Dr. Jaime Kulaga, a thera-pist and author based in Tampa, I have a new opinion on the holiday. Tired of the same-old teddy bear and box of choco-lates routine, I asked Dr. Kulaga to sug-gest something new for Valentines Day. Her answer? Take yourself on a date.Its really hard to be by ourselves,Ž she said. But the more comfortable we can become with ourselves, the more well have to give to others.Ž Women especially, she said, have a hard time with this. God forbid we go get a pedicure. God forbid we go to the gym. We could be spending time with the kids. We could be doing laundry.Ž We have so little time to sit with ourselves and figure out what exactly it is that we need. But in order to be able to give to others, we first need to establish a strong relationship with ourselves. And that means being comfortable in our own skin and at ease with our own silences. We need to learn to love ourselves the way we want others to love us. And a self-date is a good place to start. But where to go? What to do?On Valentines Day, especially, Dr. Kulaga suggests avoiding typi-cal date places „ restaurants, for example, or movie theaters. While you might eventually take yourself out to dinner and a movie, those are tough places to start on a holiday that cel-ebrates coupledom. Instead, she suggests, the first step is simply to get out of the house. Just get up and get out,Ž she said. You dont have to sit at a dinner table for one. Grab lunch and go to the beach.Ž Take a walk in the park or visit a book-store. The important point is that youre not sitting at home „ otherwise, the next thing you know youll be doing a load of laundry. And what kind of date is that? If youre in a relationship „ I think especially if youre in a relationship „ then a self-date on Valentines Day is still a good idea. It doesnt have to be the main event (you can still do dinner and a movie with your sweetheart), but you should commit at least one half hour during your day to reestablishing love for one of the most overlooked people in your life: yourself. Even when were sleeping,Ž Dr. Kulaga said, were sharing ourselves with others. Theres never a time when were not giving some part of ourselves.Ž So, make time. Take a good book and find a private spot in the house. Sit in the yard. Stroll around the neighborhood. Anything, so long as you can connect with you. Chances are good that youll become reacquainted with the self whos gotten lost in the grind of childrearing and chores. And Im willing to bet you like her. Hell, you might even love her. Q w s D c artis d h av e to e fo r one.

Both sides do all they reasonably can to accomplish their goal, and the play follows a pre-dictable course. But there are some hands that are not so simple, where a player must do something strikingly unusual to achieve the best result. Such hands are comparatively rare, but are of particu-lar interest when they occur. Consider this deal from a teamof-four match where, at both tables, South got to four spades and West led the queen of hearts. At the first table, East took the queen with the ace and shifted to his singleton club. Declarer won the club in dummy and returned a trump, East playing the ten, South the queen and West the ace. West returned a club, ruffed by East, and declarer later lost another trump trick to Wests nine for down one. At the second table, East also won the heart lead with the ace and returned a club. Declarer took the club in dummy and led a trump, just as at the first table. But when East produced the ten of spades, this declarer played the deuce from his hand! As a result of this remarkable play, South could not be stopped from making the contract. Souths duck of the ten of spades, though highly unusual, was extremely well-reasoned. He recognized that if West had three trumps to the ace, which to him seemed likely, it would be suicide to cover the ten with the queen in view of the impending club ruff. He was perfectly willing to lose two spade tricks, but not three. Of course, South could not be absolutely certain of how the missing trumps were divid ed, but he backed his judgment to the hilt and came away with flying colors. Q

Its great timing for us. I think it happens to be one of the great Ameri-can musicals in terms of its writing. Its so honest, so heartfelt,Ž Mr. Kato said. The Maltz follows that with another musical, The WizŽ (Jan. 13-Feb. 1). Its rarely produced and we will be doing a multicultural version of it and were going to be doing a lot of stage effects,Ž Mr. Kato said. It will be highly creative in its presentation because it has to be.Ž The theaters straight playŽ of the season is by David Mamet. In Glengarry Glen RossŽ (Feb. 8-22), a group of tough-talking Chicago real estate agents will do anything to close a deal. Its the first time weve ever done a Mamet play,Ž Mr. Kato said. I think its important to say that as a regional the-ater we need to keep a good mix of pro-gramming. I think this is one of Mamets greatest plays. And although it has very strong language throughout, I think its well earned and its not gratuitous.Ž Of course, the season ends on a musical note, this time with Les MisrablesŽ (March 10-April 5). I think the interesting factoid is that I made arrangements to do this two years ago. We waited. Its one of those musi-cals that people will see over and over again. Its the third time weve presented a popera. The other two were Evita and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, but both of those were by Andrew Lloyd Webber,Ž he said. Its an epic musical. I think we should do very well because its so loved.Ž This year, the theater launched its Green Room, named for philanthropist Roe Green, and club-level seating. A performance by Avery Sommers is set for this year; next season, look for a per-formance by the country group White Acres (Nov. 21). And on the heels of this years benefit performance by Brian Stokes Mitchell, the Maltz will offer a show by Chita Rivera with an 11-piece orchestra (Nov. 15). Its ambitious but were prepped for it,Ž Mr. Kato said of the season. Were ready to take on these new shows.Ž Q MALTZFrom page 1 Next season at the Maltz>>The Maltz Jupiter Theatre’s 2014/2015 season productions:“The Foreigner,” Oct. 26-Nov. 9“Fiddler on the Roof,” Dec. 2-21“The Wiz,” Jan. 13-Feb. 1“Glengarry Glen Ross,” Feb. 8-22“Les Misrables,” March 10-April 5>>The theater’s 2014/15 special produc-tions and limited engagements: Youth Artists’ Chair presents “The Crucible,” 7:30 p.m. Aug. 16.Emerging Artist Series presents “Through the Looking Glass,” 7:30 p.m. Oct. 17.Chita: A Legendary Celebration — A bene t concert by Chita Rivera for the theater, 8 p.m. Nov. 15.

The show moves quickly from one story, region, and dynasty to the next. Down in the val-ley, ladies of the Yi ethnic group dance in rain-bow skirts by the river. In the heavens, celestial fairies trail silken sleeves through the clouds. Resounding drums awaken the dusty plateaus of the Middle Kingdom. Gorgeous backdrops extend the stage, transporting the audience to distant lands and eras. An orchestra, combining Western and Chinese instruments like no other, accompanies with stirring scores. Dancers fly across the stage in an array of flips, spins, jumps, and aerials. The energy of classical Chinese dance is contagious; the entire performance, mesmerizing. A MARVELOUS PROGRAM!

B12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 13-19, 2014 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY QAQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You might want to ask a friend or relative for advice on an ongo-ing personal matter. But be careful not to give away information you might later wish you had kept secret.QPISCES (February 19 to March 20) Use the weekend for a creativity break to help restore your spiritual energy. Once thats done, youll be back and more than ready to tackle whatever challenge you need to face.QARIES (March 21 to April 19) Try to say as little as possible about the work youre doing through the end of the month. Then you can make your announcement and accept your well-deserved plaudits.Q TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You face a more difficult challenge than you expected. But with that strong Tau-rean determination, you should be able to deal with it successfully by weeks end.QGEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Before you act on your feelingsŽ about that upcoming decision, it might be wise to do a little fact-checking first. You could be very much surprised by what you dont find.QCANCER (June 21 to July 22) A recent workplace success can open some doors that were previously closed to you. On a personal level, expect to receive some important news from a longtime friend and colleague.QLEO (July 23 to August 22) Put your wounded pride aside and do what you must to heal that misunderstanding before it takes a potentially irreversible turn and leaves you regretting the loss of a good friend.QVIRGO (August 23 to September 22) One way to kick a less-than-active social life into high gear or rebuild an outdated Rolodex file is to throw one of your well-organized get-togethers for friends and associates.QLIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Getting out of an obligation you didnt really want to take on can be tricky. An honest explanation of the circumstances can help. Next time, pay more attention to your usually keen instincts.QSCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Use your Scorpion logic to push for a no-nonsense approach to a per-plexing situation. This could help keep present and potential problems from creating more confusion.QSAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A friends problem might take more time than you want to give. But staying with it once again proves the depth of your Sagittarian friendship and loyalty.QCAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) The Sea Goat can benefit from an extra dose of self-confidence to unsettle your detractors, giving you the advantage of putting on a strong presen-tation of your position.QBORN THIS WEEK: You get great joy out of creating beautiful things and sharing them with others who appreci-ate them.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 13-19, 2014 A&E B13 and Offering Private: Personal Training Yoga Meditation Massage And Small Group: Yoga Mat Pilates Harbour Financial Center 2401 PGA Boulevard, Suite 154 Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410 561-766-1367 you learn about Ms. Simses, you see ele-ments of her own life incorporated into the books plot. Her books lead character, Ellen Branford, is a successful Manhattan attorney, engaged to marry a partner who works at her firm. Ms. Simses herself is a lawyer married to another lawyer. Like Ellen, Ms. Simses hails from a New England town. They even share a love for listening to old jazz standards and taking photo-graphs (Ms. Simses is a self-proclaimed shutterbug). But, unlike her character Ellen, Ms. Simses says shes never had a situation happen where she visited another town, got out of her element, and found a new life. Out of her element is one way to put it. In the books opening chapter, Ellen plummets into the cold, dark sea after stepping out onto an old dock to take a photo of her grandmothers hometown. Her near drowning in the books first chapter quickly reveals Ellens downfall is her pride. And as Roy Cummings, a local carpenter, dives in after Ellen to rescue her, she cant help but choke out what a great, championship swimmer she was during prep school, as if to somehow lessen her humiliation at completely overlooking the docks No Trespass-ingŽ sign. I wanted her to literally be a fish out of water in the first chapter,Ž says Ms. Simses. I wanted her to be very differ-ent from the man she meets in Maine whos a small-town guy. She has a journey to go through, and her pride closes her mind to a lot of the benefits of this small town she lands in. ƒ It blocks her view for quite awhile of what this place is really like. It creates a lot of room for humor and misunderstanding, and things that can create an interesting, fun story.Ž The story was brought to Little, Brown and Company by author James Patterson, whose prolific writing career has scored him the Guinness record for the most No. 1 New York Times bestsellers of any author. Mr. Patterson and Ms. Simses run in the same circles in Palm Beach, but his willingness to meet with her after his wife, Sue, shared Ms. Simses book with him blew her away. I came (to Pattersons house) with my laptop under my arm so I could take down every word. I told him I thought I was meeting the Oracle at Delphi because hes a master at this stuff,Ž she recalls. Mr. Patterson gave Ms. Simses advice and thought tips. He helped strengthen the books story. She calls it a one in a million chance,Ž and emphatically says, It was a combination of one of the most exciting days of my life. ƒ Ill never forget it.Ž Inspiration for The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop and CafŽ came from a radio interview Ms. Simses heard one day in which an elderly womans dying request is to erase her computers hard drive. Ellens grandmothers dying wish is the impetus for what is supposed to be a quick trip to Beacon. Outside of quintes-sential grandmother Ruth, much of the books charm lies in its writing. I like writing about small-town life and I like putting people right into the scene. Ive had many people tell me that they felt like they were going on a trip when they read the book,Ž Ms. Simses says. You can take a little journey, you can get away from the hectic everyday life. You can go to this small town Bea-con, Maine. When Im thinking about writing something, I see it as a scene, and the characters are puppets that I can move around,Ž Ms. Simses says. I think that makes the book a little different. You set scenes people can see, and they can feel themselves being there. That gives it its own style.Ž Q „ The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop and CafŽ is available for purchase on, Barnes & Noble, and IndieBound.

FLORIDA WRITERSCrossing the borders of difference and indifference, fear and fulfillmentQ Adventure Philanthropist: Great Adventures Volunteering AbroadŽ by Erin Michelson. emComm LLC. 258 pages. Trade paper, $16.95. Not long ago, a woman in her mid-40s with a highly success-ful professional career in finance, decided to change her life. The change did not come without prepara-tion: She had already traveled widely and worked with philan-thropic enterprises. She had already put together a start-up net-work of can-do contacts for her new path. In 2010, Erin Michelson went into action, creating for herself the opportunity to wander the globe and open up my mind and heart to worlds I never knew existed.Ž Her memoir of nonstop activity through 2011 and 2012 is the substance of her highly original and exciting book. Its arrange-ment is thematic rather than chronologi-cal. In organizing her activities as a vaga-bond explorer and philanthropic agent, Ms. Michelson explores the meanings of 10 key emotions we all share. Essentially, she lays out a process of remaking her identity through setting goals, taking action and constantly learning. She names her chapters for the abovementioned emotions: Hope,Ž Humility,Ž Awe,Ž Fear,Ž Joy,Ž Anger,Ž Surprise,Ž Pain,Ž LoveŽ and Gratitude.Ž Her adventures focused on visiting places where essential needs are unmet „ places including Ethiopia, Mozambique, Laos, Nepal, Honduras, Zambia, Lebanon, Uganda, Egypt, Borneo, Zambia, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Bolivia and Finnish Lapland. Believe it or not, there are another dozen locations in Ms. Michelsons grand tour of lands were people are limited by short-ages of every kind, including shortages of respect, self-worth and security. In almost every case, the Adventure Philanthropist attaches herself to an enter-prise that is already trying to meet needs: establishing housing and schooling for abused women and children, for example, and correcting abuses of the environment that diminish the quality of life, or provid-ing medical care in regions without suffi-cient health systems (or even safe drinking water) and creating new local industries to improve economic opportunity, and so forth. She seeks out and meets true heroes in these places, people making the often lone-ly and against-the-odds efforts to repair the world through selfless, determined and phil MICHELSON

Ms. Michelson learns, participates and counsels. She shares useful skills in asset building, management and marketing to provide necessary tools for these philanthropic initiatives. Now, most importantly, she tells us about these places, problems and people. She offers her own experience as one tem-plate for getting others involved. And its not just the reward of giving „ the do-gooder satisfaction „ that her book makes appealing. Its also the growth in self-knowledge, the detailed learning of a range of disciplines, the resilience and endurance in the face of seemingly intrac-table situations. It is the truly spiritual exhilaration of risk-taking. It is the elation of positive o utc omes. It is making a difference, and making it almost every day. Before beginning her two-year marathon of helping and giving, Ms. Michelson recruited supporters. She also set aside funds of her own and collected more to be given to recommended organizations that she would evaluate first-hand. The last 12 pages of the book are an annotated index of global humanitarian organizations. Interested readers can find contact information for these groups along with ways to contribute financial aid and volunteer time. Whether its a battered beginning, entrenched illiteracy or grinding poverty,Ž she writes, I have met those who found strength not just to survive, but to marshal their lives with creativity, conviction and compassion. I was lucky to find such inspirational peopled living in the bustling city of Jerusalem, high in the Himalayan mountains and along the sweaty Mosquito Coast. I was fortunate to have unbridled experiences of wonder and awe.Ž Adventure PhilanthropistŽ is Ms. Michelsons way of motivating likeminded individuals. It is also a bold col-lection of exciting, suspenseful and vivid tales.

Award-winning producer Gareth Neame com-missioned Julian Fel-lowes to write the first episode, which was broadcast by ITV in Britain. The series, now in its fourth sea-son, is extremely popu-lar not just in the UK, but in America as well. In this remarkable book, Emma Rowley, a journalist for The Telegraph newspaper in London, used her unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to provide insider informa-tion, such as the inspiration behind the details on screen, the choice of locations, the music, and much more. Her highly illustrated book is like a backstage pass divided into seven main chapters: scripts, sets, props, wardrobe, hair and makeup, insider knowledge and the Downton AbbeyŽ legacy. It is the attention to historic detail that makes this series such a hit. From the period costumes to the historical-ly correct food being served „ both upstairs and downstairs „ the accuracy is astounding. The solidity of the sets offers an intimate look at both a place and time. For example, downstairs, the floors are paved with flagstone and the corridors, unlike the other rooms in the house, have lower ceilings that cor-rectly show the staff areas of a working country house. It is rather claustrophobic, especially when you put a group of 15 cast members in the ser-vants hall. But as Nigel Willoughby, director of photography, observes, if you light everything from outside the set, and youre not afraid to let people walk through dark areas, it works. By delving into the secrets, previously private experiences and tricks of the trade involved in producing the series, all aspects of the making of Downton AbbeyŽ are documented and examined. This fascinating book allows readers to learn how the drama is created and helps explain why it has become such a hit with viewers. Q

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 13-19, 2014 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19The Dish: Barbecued Half Chicken The Place: Mrs. Smokeys Real Pit BarB-Q, 1460 10th St., Lake Park; 318-5137 or The Price: $7.95 The Details: Scott Howie, aka Mr. Smokey, does a fine job with smoked meats, cooking them over a hardwood fire until they sing with the scent of hickory and oak. His chicken is no exception to the rule. The meat is tender and juicy. Mrs. Smokeys slightly sweet sauce delivers a nice counter-point to the smoky flavor of the meat. We especially love the fried biscuits (hey, if youre having barbecue, you might as well be really bad), but the crispy coleslaw and slightly spicy baked beans are reason enough to stop in. Q „ Scott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Henry Flagler was the founder of The Breakers. So its only fitting that one of the storied hotels newest eateries should bear his initials „ HMF for Henry Morrison Flagler. What once served as the main ballroom of the hotel, HMF has become the perfect lounge area for global tapas, drinks and a good time, says Anthony Sicignano, executive chef at The Breakers. HMF provides a certain kind of energy that immediately made it a hit,Ž says Mr. Sicignano. We brought in the best chef, Joey Tuazon, to help with the execution of some of the menu items that have become popular among our guests.Ž Joey Tuazon, originally from the Philippines, says that he remembers helping his aunt around the kitchen as well as shopping at the market for fresh fish and local produce. Although Mr. Tuazon attended the University of South Alabama for mar-keting and moved to Atlanta, where he studied interior design, he says he can apply his college teachings to his cuisine. Design is very much like being in the kitchen,Ž says Mr. Tuazon. I am able to take that artistic ability and put it into a dish that tastes and looks great.Ž Cooking always was a passion, so Mr. Tuazon moved to the New York area, where he landed a culinary job at the Short Hills Five Star Hilton in New Jersey. After working at the Hilton for about two years, he joined the Four Seasons culinary team in New York City before moving to Miami. Of course, I didnt have any formal culinary training, but the executive chef at the Four Seasons really took me under her wing and taught me a lot of what I know today,Ž he says. While HMF has only been open for 14 months, the restaurant serves as the ultimate Palm Beach cocktail party,Ž says Mr. Tuazon. Mr. Sicignano says that HMF, which offers an expan-sive wine bar and complex yet recog-nizable food, has become a place that people just want to be. If you ask Mr. Tuazon his favorite pick from the menu, he says that he cant resist Nonnas Meatballs. Yes, the food is simple, but the way we present the food really elevates it to a higher degree.Ž he says. When you take that first bite of the meatball, you transcend into a different level and it may even bring back memories from your favorite childhood dishes.Ž Only home probably never was this elegant. Working at The Breakers is really a dream come true for me,Ž says Mr. Tuazon. It is a pleasant work environ-ment where I can work hard but still absolutely love what I do.Ž Name: Joey Tuazon Age: 55 Original Home: The Philippines Restaurant: HMF, 1 S. County Road, Palm Beach; 290-0104 or Mission: Our mission for the restaurant is to continue what were doing and maintaining consistency when it comes to food, service, uniforms, etc.,Ž says Mr. Sicignano. We really hit the spot with this new concept, and in order for us to see great results, we have to deliver.Ž Cuisine: Global tapas Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? I wear Crocs; theyre very comfortable.Ž What is your guilty culinary pleasure? I just love Vietnamese food!Ž says Mr. Tuazon. What advice would you give someone who wants to be a chef? You really need to work hard in this industry,Ž says Mr. Tuazon. The pas-sion for it needs to come from your heart.Ž Q In the kitchen with...JOEY TUAZON, HMF at The Breakers BY LOREN GUTENTAGlgutentag@floridaweekly.comTHE DISH Highlights from local menus SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY COURTESY PHOTO Joey Tuazon studied marketing and interior design before taking up cooking professionally. Toast the holiday for lovers with a lovely wineHowever lavishly or modestly you plan to celebrate Valentines Day, you are going to need wine. Here are some suggestions for making a serious romantic statement or having some simple, light-hearted fun. Q Chateau Calon-Sgur St-Estphe 2006 ($90): The heart is on the label because the for-mer owner, who also owned Chateau Latour and Cha-teau Lafite, stated the while he made his wine at Lafite and Latour, his heart was in Calon-Sgur. Deep ruby color with fresh flavors and aromas of blackberry and dark cherries, ending with some tannins and juicy fruit flavors on a long finish. Q Chateau Ste. Michelle Eroica Riesling 2012 ($20): An off-dry and elegant table wine with light aroma and flavors of citrus and green apple followed by peach and tropical flavors. Zesty acidity and medium bodied with a clean and crisp fruity finish. Q Dom Perignon Brut Champagne 2004 ($160): Probably the most famous champagne in the world, from Moet & Chandon. Rich and vibrant with aromas of fresh flowers joining layers of flavors of pear, white peach, and apricots. A crisp underlying mineral tone carries the long, smoky finish. Showing up with a bottle of this will indicate your inten-tions are serious. Q Flirt California Red Wine 2011 ($12): I cant vouch for its taste, but it sure makes a statement. According to the website: Flirt is an alluring blend of syrah, tempranillo and zinfandel with flavors of warm, juicy red plum, baked cherry spice and cherry cola layered with vanilla and b uttersco tch. Oak aging and a precise blend of quality Mendoci-no County fruit are responsible for the additional layers of complexity and rich flavor ƒ Drink responsibly, Flirt freely.Ž Q Inniskillin Vidal Ice Wine 2012 ($50 for 375 ml): This white dessert wine starts with apricots and peaches on the nose. Light honey and candied citrus flavors are followed by a warm, sweet finish. Q Montes Purple Angel Carmenere Chile 2010 ($60): Rich reddish purple color opens up with aromas of plum and blackberry, followed on the palate with layers of dark cherries and dark fruits and ending with spice on the long finish. Q Quady Elysium Black Muscat California 2010 ($15 for 375 ml): This dessert wine is dark purple in color and has aromas and flavors of roses, figs and plums. The sweet, intense flavor is per-fect with dark chocolates. Q Sexy Wine Bomb Red Blend, California ($10): I havent had a chance to try this one, but it certainly fits this weeks theme. From the website: Sexy Wine Bomb Blends Have More Fun Red Blend is a California wine that we find to have flavors of warm, juicy red plums, baked cherry spice and cher-ry cola layered with vanilla and b uttersco tch. It has layers of complexity provided by nearly two years of oak aging and precise blending of quality Mendocino Coun-ty fruit.Ž A blend of merlot, zinfandel and syrah at a reasonable price. Q Spin the Bottle California Chardonnay 2012 ($15): Back in the day, playing spin the bottle was one way to ensure that kissing was not left to chance. This label is unique in that it features a bottle that shifts position as you view it from different angles. The wine starts with aromas of citrus and green apple that join with flavors of melon and apple. Medium bodied, soft in the mouth with a pleasing fruity finish. Q Taylor Fladgate Tawny Port 20 Year Old ($60): This traditional dessert wine from Portugal has a rich, spicy nose that starts with fig and honey notes, fol-lowed on the palate with elegant flavors of apricots, mango and spice, ending with a long, n utty finish. Q Veuve Clicquot Rose Champagne NV ($75) : Attractive light pink in color with strawberries and raspberries on the nose, mixes on the palate with cherries and darker berries. A touch of citrus and spice on the long extended finish. Q Zin-Phomaniac Lodi Old Vines Zinfandel 2012 ($12): I havent tried this one, but its name and a decadent label featuring a woman wearing three stra-tegically placed leaves wins it a spot in the lineup. Winemakers notes: A hedo-nistic wine that offers arousing dark fruit aromas, rich, spicy flavors and a bold, voluptuous mouth feel. The long, satisfy-ing climax leaves you begging for more.Ž And on the back label: The scantily clad bottle tempts youƒ remove the cork carefully, sl owly, y our desire building with every twist ƒŽ Who could resist?
