A2 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 7-13, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARY The winner’s circle Before we fully launch ourselves into the New Year, it is obligatory to take a backward look and see what transpired, hoping most of it wont follow us into the future. Only then can we celebrate, give a sigh of relief and wish good luck and farewell to the previous year. To the extent we enjoyed an abundance of good fortune, we wish rep-etition of more of the same. Though we are hopeful about the New Year, we are a little wary of the blank slate before us. The calamities of the last 12 months tend to cast a long shadow over our optimism. We just pray things will improve and we can escape any contin-uance of the terrible same occurrences in the New Year. It is a particularly tough time to expect 2016 to be better, given its pro-logue. 2015 didnt start out well, either. A survey of major milestones in 2014 yielded a pretty grim list. Much of the bad news was self-inflicted, a tsunami of systemic failures to practice the golden rule and treat others as you would like to be treated „ fairly, justly, with com-passion and consistent with the rule of law. We did poorly in major ways in 2014. The gross negligence of Freedom Industries resulted in a massive chemi-cal spill on the Elk River in West Vir-ginia, leaving thousands of business-es, schools and homes without pota-ble water for weeks. General Motors recalled a decade too late more than 700,000 cars to replace faulty ignitions suspected of multiple deaths nation-wide. The first Ebola-related death in the U.S. set off widespread fears of an epidemic and a stampede to close our boarders and make indiscriminate use of quarantines, summarily ignoring what health experts advised. This seems like ancient history now, but the failures were symptomatic to rise with dignity and courage in response to our troubles. In sum, our delusional flirtations with disaster totaled up to be another year of living dangerously. We too often failed to enforce account-ability and govern against our worst impulses. Looking forward back then, I made some predictions about 2015: Glob-al conflicts would continue, roil our domestic waters, and test our resolve as a nation to live up to our democratic values. The economic divide separat-ing the haves from the have-nots would persist, sentencing millions of families to deepening poverty. Advancing social change would reinvigorate calls for compromise, collabo-ration, nonviolent protest and advocacy. Continued and profound uncertainties would put a premium on enlightened, visionary leadership but prove to be a rare commodity, hard to find and harder to sustain „ though the nations tough-est challenges require it. That was then and this is now. 2015 has come and gone. The themes above didnt dissipate in the course of the last 12 months, and if anything, only esca-lated their dominance over a fresh start. Finding something positive about 2015 doesnt come easily either. Summarizing its milestones is pretty much a joyless task. Even trying to create such a list seems like overkill, given the epic nar-cissism and the mass contagion of our over-indulgence in the dark side. It is as if the nation went to bed after a toxic drunk in 2015 and woke up in 2016 with a massive hangover. In such circumstances, we could use a little hair of the dog that bit us. Here are mine. Last year, American Pharaoh became the first racehorse since 1978 to win the American Triple Crown. This grand horse went on to smoke his competitors and win the Breeders Cup Classic, too, thus entering the record books as the first thoroughbred to win the Grand SlamŽ of American horse racing „ the undisputed victor of all four race clas-sics. Raising a mint julep in his honor on New Years Eve seemed entirely appropriate. In August, former President Jimmy Carter announced he had brain cancer. He said on initially receiving the news he didnt think he had more than a few weeks to live. (I know what you are thinking: How could this possibly be a positive?) But hear me out. Said the smiling Carter, I have had a wonderful life. Im ready for anything and Im looking forward to new adven-ture. It is in the hands of God, whom I worship.Ž His remarks were made with honesty, grace, absent self-pity, and without any embroidery of falsity or fears. It was terrible news but the former president, by his example, demonstrated how one could be in the valley of the shadow of death, with dignity, hope, and aspirations intact. His was a remarkable witness to human resiliency and faith, despite the gravity and harshness of the circumstance. It was a moment of uplift rare by todays standards, a high point delivered from the depths of travail. Carter has since said he expects to be around in 2016 after all. His brain cancer is in remission. Said he, Id like for the last guinea worm to die before I do.Ž I hope so, too. Q „ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

It was a year when we freaked out over symbols and scared ourselves with fake statistics. It was a year when the facts werent allowed to get in the way of a good, overwrought slogan. It was a year when we convinced ourselves that Earth was nearly beyond saving. It was a year of the safe space and micro-aggression. It was, in short, a year of hysteria. By now, we should be familiar with the workings of hysteria, since „ usually whipped up in social media and stoked by an inflamed left „ it has become such a familiar feature of our culture and poli-tics. Hysteria doesnt know when to stop. After it was collectively decided that the Confederate flag shared responsibility for Dylann Roofs hellish murders in Charles-ton, South Carolina, Confederate symbols were hunted down as if they were armed fugitives from justice. The Memphis City Council even voted to exhume Nathan Bedford Forrest and „ for good measure „ his wife. Hysteria doesnt care about the facts. In an extraordinary feat, Black Lives Matter protestors took something that didnt hap-pen from a case of justifiable use of police force in Ferguson, Missouri, and made it the slogan „ Hands up, dont shootŽ „ of a movement alleging systemic police racism. The truth of Ferguson didnt mat-ter so much as the myth of Ferguson. Hysteria will believe anything. After the San Bernardino attack, the media hawked the bogus statistic that there had been more than 350 mass shootings in the U.S. this year, an almost daily occurrence. A more careful measure at Mother Jones tallied four mass shootings in 2015. Hysteria can be a powerful organizing tool. The entire world got together in Paris to sign on to a climate accord, based on the pretense that without immedi-ate action Earth will be rendered all but uninhabitable by the ravages of climate change. Hysteria is a weapon. On college campuses, students didnt just seek safe spac-es from speech they deemed uncongenial and decry inadvertent slights known as micro-aggressions, they terrorized any-one not with the program. A university president was fired for looking at protes-tors the wrong way (University of Mis-souri), and a prestigious college campus (Yale) was roiled by a dispute over wheth-er allegedly tasteless Halloween costumes could be tolerated. Protestors hunted for university employees they could be offended by enough to get cashiered. It is always difficult to motivate people around careful reasoning about a prob-lem, or to win a detached argument on the merits. It is much easier to create hate figures to attack, to demand imme-diate action as a sign of moral purity, and to short-circuit cost-benefit analysis with apocalyptic warnings. With the news cycle faster than ever and social media a constant accelerant, stopping to think, or to gather all the facts, or to consider pos-sible downsides, feels more intolerable than ever. This is the world we live in. 2015 was a year of hysteria, but why will 2016 be any different? Stock up on smelling salts and fainting couches. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINION rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly Long, hard righteous road This is the story of one American man.Burdie See-Baker Byrd, listed as not legitimate,Ž was born in Attapulgus, Georgia, near Bainbridge, about 25 miles north of the Florida state line on June 5, 1939, according to his birth certificate, filled out in the hurried, barely legible penmanship of a clerk who may have believed he didnt count. I was reading it just the other morning, shortly after the self-styled Black Red-neck,Ž last of an endangered species, died at home of lung cancer with Christmas only 45 hours away. Mr. Baker was 76, the second of eight children and the oldest son of Roos-evelt Baker and his lifelong inspiration, his mother Milissa LizzieŽ Byrd. His parents were field workers and wage slaves. His father left them early and the family went into debt working for a landowner who provided food and shel-ter, then charged them more than they could make in wages to live and eat. A long, lean drink of good cheer in the years I knew him, Mr. Baker was all ropy muscles and sinew and skill. He could skin out a hog in 10 minutes, grow a row of black-eyed peas or a patch of collards in 10 weeks, and quit both cigarettes and whiskey, forever, in 10 seconds, just because it was time. He drove Ford trucks and wore boots and cowboy hats in various colors „ whites, blacks, neon purples and blues „ all of it topped off in defiance of every stereotype ever invented with a big unre-pentant Dixie belt buckle. He had pork-chop sideburns, and when he smiled and spoke you could see gold teeth and joy shining like sunlight through his words. Mr. Baker entered the world in that listing-barge of a century between the Civil Wars conclusion in 1865 and the Civil Rights Act of 1964 „ call it apart-heid America. To put it in perspective, most Southern blacks couldnt vote in 1939. They were exiled from that right by poll taxes, literacy tests and property ownership requirements they couldnt meet. On the day of his birth, Mr. Baker was not afforded the privilege of his fathers surname on the birth certificate. Instead, the clerk added a see Baker,Ž before writing his mothers name, Byrd, and boldly checking the box that said, not legitimate.Ž Such history always bothered me more than it bothered him. He spent little time discussing the white people he knew in the first half of his life, and he laid out what he thought once to me in about 30 seconds. They couldnt hep it, most of em, they done what they was taught,Ž he said. You kin cut them or cut me, we all bleed red. Were all the same.Ž He had to make himself over, and he did, starting with that birth certificate. He changed the seeŽ to C., insisting it stood for Charles, and re-attached his fathers name to himself. He became what he always was, Mr. Burdie C. Baker, prince of a Georgia-born Florida man. For the most part, Mr. Baker never allowed bitterness or anger to steal his heart. He reserved a deep, lifelong malev-olence only for his stepfather, who beat his mother and left a 4-inch scar in Burdies skull, laid in with a two-by-four when he was a boy, he told me. After leaving home at 16, Mr. Baker ended up in Southwest Florida working on crews that built hundreds of miles of roads before becoming an over-the-road truck driver based in West Palm Beach. He would later return to Lee County. From an early age he had guts and cour-age. In 1959 just before Mr. Baker turned 20, he realized that his family was in acute distress in Georgia, terrified of the landowner and unable to leave. So he single-handedly changed the family for-tunes forever. Borrowing a friends Ford Fairlane, his sisters once told me, he returned to Bainbridge and rescued them by night, turning off the car lights when he coasted in and keeping the young children quiet as he packed them, with his mother, into the car. Mr. Baker later recalled worrying that the man would shoot them if he caught them leaving. He moved the family to Charleston Park east of Fort Myers, where his mother became famous for keeping a cast-iron pot simmering with stew in the front yard of their little home for passersby, usually farm workers. Mr. Baker followed her example in hundreds of ways for the rest of his life, providing meat, fish and fresh vegetables to any in need. For years I watched him grow gardens and share the produce with neighbors. He offered rides, retrieved groceries or medicine, and did odd jobs at no charge for the elderly or unfortu-nate, and for us too. He brought my boys bats or knives or fishing gear, and he put my youngest behind the wheel of his truck. Hes gone now, yes, but with this thunder echoing behind him „ here stood as legitimate an American man as ever came down a righteous road. Q roger COURTESY PHOTOBurdie C. Baker, b. June 5, 1939, d.

Ive found a dog. His tag says Thornton on it, and it has this phone number.Ž That was the call I received last month while I was in Oklahoma, visiting my parents. My husband was recover-ing from surgery and had a cold, so we placed the dogs with a pet sitter who had kept them many times previously. I was stunned and frightened. Had all the dogs escaped the sitters home, or just this one? Were the other two still running loose somewhere? I rummaged for a pen and some paper so I could take down the callers name and phone number. I called my husband to alert him that he needed to call the person and arrange to get our dog. I wasnt sure which one it was, since Keeper and Harper both have brown-and-white coloring. Then I called the pet sitter. Do you have my dogs?Ž He admitted that Keep-er was missing „ he had somehow slipped out of the house unseen. They were searching for him. Happily, Harper and Gemma were still there. I let him know that Keeper had been found „ turns out he was just next door „ and that my husband would be by soon to pick them all up. You might say that Im a little obsessive when it comes to the amount of information I put on my pets identifica-tion tags. They are engraved with our last name, our home phone number, two cell phone numbers and our veterinar-ians phone number. Of course, my dogs are also microchipped, but an ID tag is the first and easiest option for recovery. All the finder has to do is read the tag and call the phone number on it. In our case, the man called our house phone first but didnt leave a mes-sage. My husband didnt recognize the number, so he didnt pick up the call. I had my phone on silent because my parents and I had just gotten out of the movies, but luckily I felt it vibrate. I didnt recognize the number either, but it was an Orange County area code, so I answered. In addition to their ID tags, my dogs wear tags from HomeAgain and the American Kennel Clubs Reunite ser-vice. The microchips are registered with those organizations, so if the man had called either of those numbers, we would have been notified. And of course they all have their license tags from the county. Those tags dont have phone numbers, but if the finder had called Orange County Animal Control, they would have been able to identify Keeper and get in touch with me. Accidents like Keepers escape can happen to anyone. Hes very good at home about not running out the door, and I would not have expected him to escape in such a manner, but you never know what a dog is going to do. You can never prevent your dog from becoming lost, but you can take easy, inexpensive steps to increase the likeli-hood that hell come home safely: € Keep a collar with an up-to-date ID tag on him. € Put multiple phone numbers on the tag.€ Check the tag regularly to make sure the engraving hasnt faded. € Microchip him.€ License him.€ Register his identification with an organization such as the American Kennel Clubs Reunite service. And remember: If you find a lost dog, be sure to leave a message at all the phone numbers. Q An identification tag helped ensure that a lost dog was returned quickly to his owners.

Robbie 101 Mayor Berger continues tradition of gala to benefit the homeless SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYHosting a gala to benefit homeless services in Palm Beach County has offi-cially become a mayoral tradition. Palm Beach County Mayor Mary Lou Berger announced there will be a Mayors Ball in 2016, and like the preceding balls, it will benefit the Homeless Coalition of Palm Beach County. If you dont have a place to live you cannot start to put the rest of your life back together,Ž said Mayor Berger. You need to be in a place where you feel safe, that you can come home to everyday. Then you feel like you have re-joined society and you have a purpose and youre ready to move on.Ž Mayor Berger says she remembers the shock she felt as a young person the first time she saw someone living on the street. She says the image of that man stays with her as she and other county leaders look for ways to solve what she says is one of the communitys biggest issues. The Mayors Ball began in 2014 when then Mayor Priscilla Taylor decided to hold an event to increase awareness about homelessness and raise funds to solve the issue in our community. Those efforts were continued in 2015 when Commis-sioner Shelley Vana served as mayor. Both mayors selected the Homeless Coalition as the fundraisers beneficiary. Proceeds from the balls have helped to move 583 men, women and children into permanent hous-ing and to employ a specialist to identify affordable housing across the county. The Mayors Ball is not about one organization or one city,Ž said Pamela Good-man, Homeless Coalition board president and co-chair of the host committee. This event has helped fund programs at our partner agencies, like Adopt-A-Family, Goodwill, The Lords Place and the Sena-tor Philip D. Lewis Center. The Mayors Ball benefits all people who are experienc-ing homelessness, in all the municipalities of Palm Beach County.Ž The Mayors Ball 2016 is Saturday, Feb. 27, at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. The black tie gala will include a cocktail reception and silent auction at 6 p.m., followed by dinner and dancing. Tickets are available for $250 through the Homeless Coalitions website, Q


W E  VE REALLY GONE AND DONE it now, havent we? And not for the first time. The Babylonians did it first, and not to themselves but to the gods „ they made solemn new years resolutions, promis-ing to pay off debts and return objects theyd borrowed. The Romans promised to improve themselves, too, at the feet of Janus (hence, January), a divinity with two faces who could look into the past with one face and into the future with the other. Medieval knights took a peacock vowŽ (it sounds a lot bet-ter in French „ less voeux du paonŽ) by promising to remain chivalrous in the coming year, which makes sense: Theres a lot of strutting and displaying when it comes to resolutions to be noble or chivalrous. And then theres the modern North American or European. We make promises to our-selves, usually, and then we commission studies to look at the results. A professor at the University of Bristol followed 3,000 people who made New Years resolu-tions in 2007, according to Ancient Origins: Reconstruct-ing Humanitys Past.Ž By the end of the year, 88 percent had failed „ but men were 22 percent more likely to stick to their resolutions if they set goals, he discovered, and women were 10 percent more likely to succeed if they socialized with each other and described their resolutions to their friends. Like much else, resolutionmaking is not carpentry „ its not construction work „ its artistry. And some artists are better at it than others. The writer James Agate, for exam-ple, resolved one year to toler-ate fools more gladly, provided this does not encourage them to take up more of my time.Ž Thats a masterpiece, like this one, the rather foxy creation of Catherine OHara: I know. Im lazy. But I made myself a New 2016 RESOLUTIONS FROM COMMUNITY LEADERS BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@” Years resolution that I would write myself something really special. Which means I have til December, right?Ž At Florida Weekly, however, everything is different. For us, 4,000 years of ancient origins, mountains of contemporary studies and the most care-fully constructed Rockets of Resolution „ each equipped with built-in escape hatches „ although entertaining, mostly amount to smoke in the wind. We prefer to remain In the Know, In the Now „ which, in fact, frames our collective reso-lution for 2016: To stay there. For that reason, this week we bring you the new years reso-lutions of a few of our favorite people, now mere days into their own personal 2016 jour-neys. These men and women tend to defy studies and laugh off mere statistics. Our own studies and statistics, admitted-ly somewhat whimsical, indi-cate that 100 percent of them will succeed in any resolution they make. But we have not stopped there. Since theyre so success-ful, we have asked some to sug-gest an additional resolution „ a resolution they wish someone else would make. Heres what they said. Q HEATHER FITZENHAGEN, STATE REPRESENTATIVE FROM DISTRICT 78: Resolution: I will be simplifying in the New Year. I have resolved to increase my focus on things that are important and to live in the moment.Ž Resolution suggestion: I hope that leaders at every level will use common sense and act with compassion. Short-term thinking and bombastic rhetoric is so last year! Resolve to be genuine and act with conviction. For Donald Trump: Be candid, be passionate (love it), but resolve not to be rude and disrespect-ful to others.Ž EUNICE BAROS, FLORIDA SUPREME COURT MEDIATOR AND ATTORNEY IN PALM BEACH COUNTY SPECIALIZING IN CONSUMER FRAUD AND CRIMINAL DEFENSE LAW: Do you believe in the power of making New Years resolutions? Yes, I believe in the power of commitment and determina-tion. So I do make New Years resolutions. What is the resolution you are most proud of fulfilling? One of my recent New Years resolutions was to visit Alaska before the glaciers melted. It was a wonderful trip in the month of May and the weather was still nippy but sunny. Its important to create and make memories. What is your personal resolution for the year 2016? My perennial New Years resolution is to clean the garage. I will do it again! JACK LIGHTON, PRESIDENT AND CEO, LOGGERHEAD MARINELIFE CENTER, JUNO BEACH: Do you believe in the power of making New Years resolu-tions? Yes, a new year is a wonderful time for people to make resolutions and set new or revised goals, personally and profes-sionally. What is the resolution you are most proud of fulfilling? A tie! Resolving to learn how to conduct sea-turtle-nesting research surveys on our local beaches (goal accomplished in 2014). And resolving to obtain my PADI scuba dive certification (goal accomplished in 2015). If you dont make personal resolutions, what are your hopes and wishes for the year 2016, in gener-al? In 2016 I am resolving to do more Bikram yoga and increase my intake of green juice drinks, hopeful I can make this happen! RAPHAEL CLEMENTE, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, THE WEST PALM BEACH DOWN-TOWN DEVELOP-MENT AUTHOR-ITY: Do you believe in the power of making New Years resolutions? No. Whats the strangest resolution you ever made? That I would fast for 10 days. (Failed at that one!) What is the resolution you are most proud of fulfilling? When I was a kid, winning the 100 yard but-terfly event at a regional swimming competition. If you dont make personal resolutions, what are your hopes and wishes for the year 2016, in gen-eral? I wont make any resolutions this year, and havent for a long time. For 2016 I hope the world becomes more peaceful and tolerant, and that leaders at every level can work together to bring about positive change. WAYNE DALTRY, FORMER DIRECTOR OF LEE COUNTY SMART GROWTH, VOLUNTEER AND LEADER THE CALOOSAHATCHEE RIVER CITIZENS ASSOCIATION: Resolution: I am back to a common New Year reminder „ as pledge „ not to commit the same mistakes and errors of the past (since) there are so many I have not yet experienced!Ž Resolution Suggestion: My resolution for any elected official is that they repeat the phrase: Government of the people, by the people and for the people and they resolve to remember it means human beings, not stacks of money „ and to not exclude anyone who meets the criteria of being a human being.Ž PATRICK DEARBORN, HEAD OF THE DEARBORN TEAM AT JOHN R. WOOD PROPERTIES, VOLUNTEER WITH COLLIER COUNTY HONOR FLIGHT AND SALVATION ARMY RED KETTLE DRIVE IN NAPLES: Resolution: My resolution for 2016 is to be more fiscally responA8 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 7-13, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY


Resolution suggestion: I would ask my son Cooper age 12 to make his 2016 resolution to continue to be a light in the world „ we need more young people to be lights in the world. BRIAN HOLLEY, CEO OF THE NAPLES BOTANICAL GARDEN: Resolution: I usually try to avoid resolutions at all cost but this year I really want to start putting this aging, cranky body into yoga classes.Ž Resolution suggestion: My resolution for another person would be for my yogi to resolve to ban cam-eras from the studio while I am there. Another resolution suggestion would be for Mark Zuckerberg to resolve to finally put a DONT LIKE b utton on Facebook posts!Ž RYAN LIEBER, P.R. MANAGER, TENET FLORIDA PALM BEACH COUNTY; AMATEUR IMPROVISER FOR SICK PUPPIES COMEDY WHO’S OCCASIONALLY FUNNY. BOYNTON BEACH: Do you believe in the power of making New Years resolu-tions? I do, as long as its something thats going to be enjoyable. Thats why I never make resolutions about losing weight, eating more fiber or not eating out for dinner as much. I mean come on, who wants to really do that? Whats the strangest resolution you ever made? I have never made a strange resolution bur for the sake of this article I once made a resolution that I would never watch my beloved Chicago Cubs play again until they actually started getting competitive. It lasted until April which is when the baseball season starts anyway. What is the resolution you are most proud of fulfilling? I did make a resolution a couple of years ago that I would travel to a new destination each year, and Ive really made a concerted effort of going to places both in and out of the country to visit. Someone once told me, See the world before you leave the world.Ž Its so true. If you dont make personal resolutions, what are your hopes and wishes for the year 2016, in general? I just want myself, family, and friends to stay healthy and happy for 2016. Oh and if its not too much to ask for, to see the Cubs finally win a World Series. Is that asking too much? JAMES ABRAHAM, PRINCIPAL AT BOOK-BROKER PUBLISHERS OF FLORIDA: Resolution: My personal resolution is the one Ive been making for the past five years: to listen to my wife, Ginger. She has my best interests at heart and shes usually right. Im getting better at listening to her every year.Ž Resolution suggestion: Id love to see people in general commit to bet-ter public discourse. This country and this community have problems that can be solved through mutual respect and civility in public discussion.Ž JEFF MCCULLERS, DIRECTOR OF GRANTS AND PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT AND LIAISON TO PUBLIC CHARTER SCHOOLS, LEE COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT: Resolution: My first resolution is to do some homework thats good for me: Ive resolved to read Capital in the Twenty-First Century by the French economist Thomas Piketty. For almost two years now, the smartest people I know and read have made repeat-ed and pointed references to this book, and I think I need to find out why it matters so much. My second resolution is one thats just for fun. I have resolved to read Peter Guralnicks new biography of Sam Phillips, the legend-ary founder of Sun Records in Memphis. This looks to be like the sort of book you read straight through the night.Ž Resolution suggestion: If I could wish a resolution on other people, it would be that every single citizen reg-ister to vote, and that every registered voter cast an informed ballot in every race and referendum. After all, voters have supreme power, and with great power comes great responsibility.Ž ANNETTE TROSSBACH, WARD, STEWARD, FOUNDER AND ANGEL OF THE THEATER — THE LABORATORY THEATER OF FLORIDA: Resolution: I am aware that the challenges we attract to ourselves (for those dont appear by chance) are there to teach us. I resolve to remain open, a vessel if possible, to those challenges and the likelihood of pain. I do not wish to close myself off, to develop a thick skin, possibly to become hard-hearted or cynical or cruel, including to myself. I choose not to be that per-son. I will rather OWN my chal-lenges, cry about them, laugh about them, share them with friends, brain-storm, improve myself, improve my theater, improve „ if I can in my own small way „ the community about me. There is much for which to be grateful. And I am, every day. I resolve to be grateful for the difficulties. And to embrace the discomfort (hurt? pain?) that so often holds hands with change.Ž Resolution suggestion: Ms. Trossbach is reluctant to suggest resolutions for others.

She wondered if they were as bored and exasperated as she was with Lens didactic lecture. Terri tried to remind herself that Len, a retired college professor, is knowledgeable about a host of topics. But sometimes Len has been known to drone on interminably when he warms up to his favorite topics. And, today, it seemed to Terri that Len was in rare form „ taking on that arrogant, pedantic tone she despised. Terri was always on edge when she was out socially with Len. She could never be sure he wouldnt embarrass her. She couldnt stop herself from lecturing Len on what to say before going out. And Terri would often chastise Len on the way home from events, pointing out each offensive remark he made. Len would never admit that Terri had a point or that, perhaps, his behavior was out of line. Rather, Len became defensive, accusing Terri of monitoring his every m ove, and letting her know how much he resented her corrections. It sometimes seemed to Terri that Len would DELIBERATELY defy her wishes just to make his point or to retaliate.So, is it fair if we complain when our partner acts in a cringe-worthy manner? Is it okay to correct them or to make excuses to others for their behavior? Or should we look the other way and accept our partner (off color jokes and all) with-out judgment? Whether its right to do so, we often judge our loved ones through the eyes of other people. Its human nature to believe that when others admire our partners, there may be a direct correlation to our own worthiness and esteem. Hence, if others think highly of our partners, our own social status will be elevated. But, what if we believe „ or know „ that our partner has traits that annoy or offend other people? Are we fair to assume that in some way this will nega-tively impact our social standing? The irony is that we may die a thousand deaths in embarrassment when our spouse misbehaves, but in actuality, our friends may hardly notice the very things that bother us. Or, if they do notice, they may be more forgiving than we are, mak-ing allowances for our partners antics. Most of us will indulge a persons idio-syncrasies if we find other more impor-tant qualities to enjoy in the friendship. And, of course, other people dont have the same investment we do in our partner maintaining a socially appropriate stance. If we have a sorry history of observing our partner making faux pas on a regular basis, we may be on guard, waiting for the shoe to drop. Ironically, we often make matters worse because our partner may know hes under the microscope and could feel like hes walking on eggshells. No one likes to believe their partner disapproves of them, leaving little room for error. And when WE publicly call attention to our partners gaff „ because of our own discomfort „ we often exacerbate the problem. The attempt we make to correct our partner might turn out to be more offensive than the underlying faux pas. We can all agree that many an enjoyable evening has been dampened by people who shamelessly air their marital conflicts. Stepping back, its worth considering whether our partners boorishŽ behavior is the true culprit for our unhappiness at all! In fact, it may be easier for us to direct our concerns to our partners behav-ior than to look inward. Perhaps weve infused a whole dimension of angst and anguish to the mix because were not fully confident of our own worthiness and social acceptance. In fairness, there are some instances when an individual may be penalized for pairing with a person who grates on oth-ers. This person may be excluded from couple-oriented eventsŽ because other people emphatically do NOT want to spend time with a person who offends them. This can be incredibly hurtful and humiliating „ and often not in ones con-trol to fix. Addressing our upsets is obviously important for us to do, but the way we do so can promote closeness or have negative consequences. In the context of a loving, supportive relationship, we should hopefully be able to be upfront and respectfully request that our partner address the specific, upsetting behaviors. What if the behavior is not only offensive, but hurtful or harmful to other people? What if the behavior is so egre-gious, its contrary to our values? We then have some important things to consider because there may be irreconcilable dif-ferences. We may feel we have no choice but to issue a bottom line statement that we will not tolerate behavior of this mag-nitude. But to do so, we must be prepared to follow through and may need to seek out professional help. In the spirit of the New Year, lets try to approach our most important relation-ships with appreciation and respect and lets not forget „ a sense of humor.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 7-13, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY In August, 2014, the Latin Post, Madame Noir, and several other news sources reported that the mortgage on the home in which Dwayne Wade, and ex-wife, Shiovaughn Funches, had lived was in default. The 7800 ft. home located just outside of Chicago was transferred to Ms. Funches as part of the parties’ marital settlement agreement. Mr. Wade’s ex-wife also received over $25,000.00 in monthly support to assist in making the mortgage payment on the property. Both parties were named in the foreclosure suit. Battle lines were drawn over who was at fault. As is true in most divorce cases, the answer is not a simple one. The divorce agreement made Ms. Funches responsible for paying the mortgage; however, the parties had acquired the mortgage during their marriage, thus prior to the divorce. Which contract therefore was more important? From a practical standpoint, the terms of the mortgage trump the terms of the settlement agreement. Because Mr. Wade and Ms. Funches were still on the joint obligation of the property after the divorce, the mortgage company can and did sue them both. This, as they say, is where the rubber meets the road. In divorce court, Ms. Funches is responsible, solely, for payment of the mortgage. She was provided substantial support from Mr. Wade, part of which, was to fund this payment. Unfortunately, however, Ms. Funches choose to jeopardize the home in which she and their children lived by not making the mortgage payment. As she was well aware, Mr. Wade had an on-going legal obligation to the mortgage company to ensure the monthly payments were made even if Ms. Funches did not make them. Although Mr. Wade had the right to indemnification from Ms. Funches for her failure to pay, this is little solace in the face of a judgement for the full value of the unpaid mortgage. Ultimately, the matter was resolved but the damage was done, nonetheless. In divorce, how a settlement is structured, especially regarding jointly titled debt, is critical; it can be the difference between rebuilding after divorce and digging out of an ever deepening hole.

Recently, technology has replaced many treatment methods with more effective, less painful, and less expensive modalities. By using several advanced techniques, phlebologists today are able to totally avoid such operations as vein stripping and ligation. These procedures are no longer necessary, and have been shown in fact to increase the risk of bleeding, infection, nerve damage, and recurrence. Ultrasound and Laser technologies, combined with training and experience, have essentially revolutionized the correction of venous abnormalities. Sclerotherapy for spider veins however remains the treatment of choice. Although laser treatments are best for large vein disease, skin laser treatments are more painful, more expensive, and less effective than cosmetic scherotherapy. Endovenous Laser Ablation is the treatment of choice for large superficial venous disease. This in-office minimally invasive technique eliminates the source of the problem and has very small recurrence rates. Endovenous ablation can also be accomplished with medication placed directly into the vein using Ultrasound guidance. These procedures require no down time, are more effective, and are covered by Medicare and most insurance plans. If needed, cosmetic sclerotherapy and compression stockings may be recommended.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE A17 SECTION WEEK OF JANUARY 7-13, 2016 Positive trends continued for Floridas housing market in November, with more closed sales, higher median prices, more new listings and fewer days on the market, according to the latest housing data released by Florida Realtors. Statewide, closed sales of existing single-family homes rose in November with a total of 18,102, an increase of 1.9 percent over November 2014. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureaus Know Before You Owe TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure, which was implemented in early Octo-ber, may have affected home sales in the last couple of months,Ž said 2015 Florida Realtors President Andrew Barbar, a broker with Keller Williams Realty Services in Boca Raton. It appears some sales have been delayed and likely pushed into closing the fol-lowing month. However, as the TRID implementation process moves forward, we believe its impact should be transitory. Also, we dont expect that (Decembers) decision by the Federal Reserve to slightly raise the federal funds rate will have a significant adverse impact on the housing market, as rates remain historically low. The increase was long anticipated, and it may even encourage homebuyers who had been waiting on the sidelines to enter the market now.Ž The statewide median sales price for single-family existing homes in November was $200,000, up 13.6 per-cent from the previous year, according to data from Florida Realtors Indus-try Data and Analysis department in partnership with local Realtor boards/associations. The statewide median price for townhouse-condo properties was $150,000, up 7.1 percent over the year-ago figure. The median is the midpoint; half the homes sold for more, half for less. November marked 48 months in a row month that statewide median sales prices increased year-over-year for both single-family homes and townhouse-condo properties. According to the National Association of Realtors, the national median sales price for existing single-family homes in October 2015 was $221,200, up 6.3 percent from the previous year. In Floridas townhouse-condo market, statewide closed sales totaled 7,638, up 5.7 percent compared to November 2014. The closed sales data reflected fewer short sales in November: Short sales for townhouse-condo properties declined 35.8 percent while short sales for single-family homes dropped 34.3 percent. Closed sales typically occur 30 to 90 days after sales contracts are written. We are ending the year on a high note, but the market is definitely tight-ening in Florida,Ž said Florida Real-tors Chief Economist Dr. John Tuccillo. Both single-family sales and condo-townhouse sales increased in Novem-ber, but inventories continue to fall. Although the recent Fed increase in interest rates will not affect the hous-ing market in any significant way in the next few months, the rise, coupled with the absence of inventory, could cause the market to slow down a bit as we enter 2016.Ž Inventory continues to be tight, with a 4.5-months supply in November for single-family homes and a 5.5-months supply for townhouse-condo proper-ties, according to Florida Realtors. Most analysts consider a 6-month supply of inventory as the benchmark for a bal-anced market between buyers and sell-ers. According to Freddie Mac, the interest rate for a 30-year fixed-rate mort-gage averaged 3.94 percent in November 2015, down from the 4.0 percent average recorded during the same month a year ago.

After all, it wasnt an election year, there werent any major wars that broke out, and the top sports story of the year involved the air pressure of a football. Yet there were some major events that transpired that will be remembered, I think, for years to come. The Supreme Courts ruling on the legality of gay marriage. The migrant crisis in Europe. Mass shootings across the country. Similarly, on the surface, 2015 was a subdued year across Wall Street. Stocks ended basically where they started. The bond market was flat to slightly down as well. However, there were some significant events and les-sons to be learned by looking back over the year that should be examined. In my opinion, the most significant financial event in 2015 was the crash of commodity prices. We see this effect every time we fill our cars up with gas or pay our propane bills. But it wasnt just oil that saw a decline. Gold prices, steel prices and copper prices all fell as well. Each of these commodities had their own reasons for a drop in price. Oil fell because OPEC chose to support its share of the oil market as opposed to prices. Despite a glut of oil, OPEC (mainly Saudi Arabia) continues to export oil at a record pace in order to drive U.S. produc-tion down. Gold prices fell as inflation continued to be tame and the Fed started to increase short-term interest rates. And industrial metals fell because of Chinas slow-er than expected growth and the lack of new energy projects that rely on these metals. Lower commodity prices were a huge boost to the airline and transpor-tation industries as well as well as to everyday consumers. But they were a devastating blow to the energy and material sectors, which laid off thou-sands of workers and saw their stock prices plummet. Another trend in 2015 was the absolute punishment of those investors who reached for high-yielding investments in a year of close to zero interest rates. Many people who traditionally put money in bank CDs instead turned to high-yield bonds and Energy Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) in order to achieve some kind of yield on their money. Instead, many of these investors took huge losses as high-yield bonds fell double digit percentages in 2015 and MLPs faired much worse. It turned out that these investments produced high yields for a reason: they were also highrisk. It turned out that a .5 percent bank CD was a winner after all. Last year was supposed to be a great year for stocks. The consumer was spending again. Interest rates were set to rise, which would cause funds to cycle out of bonds and into stocks. Companies were returning money to sharehold-ers in record amounts via stock buy-backs and increased dividends. Labor and material costs were still low. Yet the Dow Industrial Average and S&P ended down for the year. What happened? For one, energy companies were crushed, which put pressure on the entire index. And second, when expectations are so high you cant help but be disappointed even if things are pretty good. And there were definitely some bright spots. Companies like Netflix and Amazon and even Nike, GE, Home Depot and McDonalds all did very well this past year. But for the most part, 2015 was a year to forget for equities. Finally, 2015 was the year that the Fed finally raised rates. It was a day that was anticipated for months. But the day came and went and the sun rose in the east and set in the west the following day. Of course, banks imme-diately raised their prime lending rates but somehow forgot to simultaneously increase the rates they pay depositors. The lesson here, I think, is that as long as the market sees something coming from a mile away, it will be fine with it. It is the unexpected or the unknown that really spooks it. On a final note, I want to thank everyone for all of the support they have shown during my first year as a newspaper columnist. I have loved all of the great feedback I have received and I appreciate you all for reading my ramblings. If you have any suggestions for future topics or just want to send me a comment, shoot me an email. I wish everyone the best for 2016.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 7-13, 2016 NEWS A21 The Art of Living Operated by Sothebys International Realty, Inc. PALMBEACH BROKERAGE | 340 Royal Poinciana Way, Suite 337 | Palm Beach, FL 33480 561.659.3555 | IBIS GOLF & COUNTRY CLUBS FINEST | $1,799,000 | Web: 0076183 | Patricia Mahaney, 561.352.1066 | JB Edwards, 561.370.4141Let the Infiniti QX60 disguise your familyOf course you love your family. Still, many of you are willing to pay extra money to drive a vehicle that doesnt always remind you that there are plenty of little ones to haul around. Infiniti seems to understand this motivation quite well, and the QX60 is proof. Many luxury crossovers add swoopy and aggressive style lines to try and liven up the soccer practice transport, but this one goes further. The QX60 utilizes a much more cohesive package to offer a bit of visual trickery. The grille and front Infiniti logo are massive. This might just be a bit of corporate hubris, but it also serves as a nice way to scale down the size of the vehicle. After all, a vehicle with a big emblem sets up the large doors and long roof to appear proportion-ally smaller (i.e., sportier). The inward kink of the d-pillar artificially shortens the per-ception of the rear end, which once again, hides the QX60s bulk. The reality of this crossovers true size is apparent from the Napoleonic feeling that comes from opening such a substantial door. The upshot of this size deception is an interior that gives plenty of room to the first two rows and a standard third row that doesnt stunt a childs growth. Theres even enough cargo room left over to carry a few suitcases. But more than function, this Infiniti keeps its luxury attitude with standard fea-tures like the seven-inch touchscreen info-tainment system, power front seats, power rear liftgate and three-zone automatic cli-mate control. The standard leather interior feels comfortable for the driver, and more importantly, it has a thick durable feeling to it. Rarely are the cowhides of luxury cars described this way, but it has a robustness that will be appreciated the first time uh-ohŽ is heard from a little voice in the third row. Like any good luxury vehicle there is a long list of comfort and convenience options. One that comes highly recom-mended is the AroundView monitor that displays a 360-degree view of the car on the touchscreen. This also offers a wide front and rear sonar detection that can help watch out for the neighborhood kids. There is also an available moonroof over the second and third rows. This feature was deemed very family friendly during an outing at a drive through a safari park. Both the camera sys-tem and the extra glass roof are part of larg-er pricy option bundles ($3,000 and $3,450 respectively,) but these packages are well equipped enough that they are worth a look. All of this adds to the QX60s $43,395 base price. Thats not at all cheap, but it is quite reasonable in the premium crossover class. Those who want to save even more can check out the QX60s assembly line sibling, the Nissan Pathfinder. But oddly enough, the upper echelons of the Pathfinders option packages are expensive enough to make this Infiniti version look like a bargain. But what really makes the QX60 standout is what it does for the driver. We were a bit puzzled by the speed-sensitive hydraulic rack-and-pinion steering that was on the Infiniti Q70 sports sedan we tested a few week ago, but it feels right at home here. The way it gives a little extra heavy steer-ing effort at lower speeds is much more welcomed in the QX60. The weight is not daunting, but instead, it adds a little extra performance feel to the handling when driv-ing at neighborhood speed. And lets face it, theres a real desire for any family drivers to experience a bit of the old days when all that was needed was a two-seater coupe. This tight handling package doesnt tax the passengers. The 265 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 motor is connected to a smooth continu-ously variable transmission. Plus, the whole chassis has been dampered well enough to keep everyone comfortable on multi-state road trips. We know you love your family. Thats why years ago you traded in a pair of sport bucket seats for a fleet of child safety chairs. But Infiniti also knows that youll pay a little extra to get a taste of that old sports car life again. Q BEHIND THE WHEEL myles


A22 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JANUARY 7-13, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY KOVEL: ANTIQUES Sewing boxes keep capturing imaginations, plus needles and thread BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELEvery household had a person who could make, alter and mend clothing before the sewing machine was invented in 1842. Learning to darn, mend and make samplers was part of the education for girls rich enough to go to school in a city. So every family had a sewing basket or table with all of the needles, thread, scissors and other small items used when sewing. The main room of the house, near a fireplace or stove, often was the place chosen to keep the sewing supplies, and the wife did the sewing in the evening while chatting with her family. The sewing box was attractive, often a skillfully crafted wooden box or even a table with a lift top that opened to a bag that held fabrics. But sometimes the sewing box was imaginative, made in the shape of a house or covered in painted designs. At a 2015 auction, a decorated folk-art Victorian sewing box was offered for sale. The house-shaped box had a fabric-covered pin cushion in the center of the roof,Ž which opened to expose a com-partmented lift-out tray. The house had a brick foundation, front porch and windows with sh utters. It was in a 20-by-2-inch yardŽ with a picket fence. It looks like a dollhouse, so it must have been tempting for children to try to see inside. It sold for $3,075 at the Skinner sale in Boston. Q: We got a personal Camel cigarettes tin ashtray from my husbands aunt sev-eral years ago. We still have the original box it came in. His aunt came from a time when women couldnt smoke in public and she had to sneak her cigarettes. What is it worth? A: This portable tin Camel cigarette caseŽ is small enough to fit into a pocket or purse. When you push in the bottom of the box, the retractable ashtray slides out and the cigarette rest pops out. They sell online for about $6 to $12. Q: I have a large cup with a handle that has writing and pictures on it. There is a poem on one side. On the other side is a bundle of wheat sheaves in a circle and the words In God we trust, The Farmers Arms.Ž Four pictures of farm implements are around the circle. The cup is marked on the bottom Adams, Est. 1657, England.Ž Is it old or valuable? A: Your cup was made by William Adams and Sons, which was founded in Staffordshire, England, in 1769. The date in the mark refers to an earlier pottery founded by John Adams, a relative. Wil-liam Adams and Sons became part of the Wedgwood Group in 1966. The name AdamsŽ was used on some items through 1998. This large cup is sometimes called a mush cupŽ and some-times just a large coffee cup. It was made in the late-19th or early 20th century, and sells today for about $30, double if there is a saucer. Q: Im looking for information on a chair made by the B.L. Marble Chair Co. of Bedford, Ohio. Can you help? A: The company was founded by Barzilla L. Marble. He worked at two other Bedford furniture makers before going into partnership with A.L. Shattuck to found The Marble and Shattuck Chair Company in 1885. Marble founded the B.L. Marble Chair Co. in 1894, making wooden chairs. The company made office furniture begin-ning in 1910. It merged with The Dicta-phone Corporation in 1965 and the name became The Marble Imperial Furniture Company. The company went out of busi-ness in 1985. Q: My dad was given a wooden boat model built by prisoners when he was the administrator of the Leesburg Prison Farm in Leesburg, New Jersey, in the late 1940s. It was a gift. Its a cabin cruiser, 36 inches long, and is in good condition. Id like to know where I might be able to sell it. A: Prison art is collectible. If you search the words prison artŽ online, youll find several sites that sell prison art or buy it. Some prisons offer art therapy or art lessons for prisoners, while others pro-vide the time or materials for the prisoner to produce art on his own. A Tennessee art college worked with prisoners on death row to create work for a gallery showing. Richard Matt, a convicted murderer serv-ing time in an upstate New York prison, did portraits of movie stars and other famous people based on photographs. He bartered some of his paintings and drawings for tools he used in his escape. Those who sell prison art must buy it first. One of the sites might buy your boat. Tip: Candle drippings can be removed from fabric or furniture with the help of ice cubes. Rub the wax with the ice until the wax hardens. Scrape off the hard wax with a credit card or stiff cardboard. If some wax remains, put a blotter over it and then iron with a cool iron.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 7-13, 2016 A23 New world orderIn December, Canadas supportive organization The Transgender Project released a biographical video of the for-mer Paul Wolscht, 46 and the father of seven children with his ex-wife, Marie, describing his new life as not only a female but a 6-year-old female, Ste-phoknee Wolscht. She told the Daily Xtra (gay and lesbian news site) that not acting her real age (even while doing adultŽ things like working a job and driving a car) enables her to escape depres-sion and suicidal thoughts.Ž Among the trans-ages favorite activities are (color-ing-book) coloring, creating a play-like kingdom,Ž and wearing really pretty clothes.Ž Ms. Wolscht now lives with the couple who adopted her. Unclear on the conceptThee, Not Me: American millennialsŽ continue a long-standing tradition,Ž The Washington Post wrote in December, describing a Harvard Institute of Politics poll on their views on war. Following the recent Paris terrorist attacks, about 60 percent of U.S. millennials said addi-tional American troops would be needed to fight the Islamic State, but 85 percent answered, in the next question, that no, they themselves were probablyŽ or def-initelyŽ not joining the military. Exceptional Floridians(1) Police in St. Petersburg reported the December arrest of a 12-year-old boy whose rap sheet listed more than 20Ž arrests since age 9. He, on a bicycle, had told an 89-year-old driver at a gas station that the mans tire was low, and when the man got out to check, the boy hopped in the car and took off. (2) A driver accidentally plowed through two small busi-nesses in Pensacola in December, creat-ing such destruction that the manager of one said it looked like a bomb had hit (forcing both „ a tax service and a cas-ket company „ to relocate). The driver told police he was attempting to travel through time.Ž Compelling explanations(1) Breen Peck, 52, an air traffic controller who has been having career trou-bles in recent years, was arrested during a traffic stop on New Yorks Long Island in December when officers found illegal drugs in his car. Thats meth,Ž he said. Im an air traffic controller.Ž I smoke it to stay awake.Ž (2) In a she-said/he-saidŽ case, wealthy Saudi businessman Ehsan Abdulaziz, 46, was acquitted of rape in December in Englands South-wark Crown Court, apparently persuad-ing jurors of reasonable doubtŽ about his DNA found in the alleged victims vagina. Perhaps, his lawyer said, Mr. Abdulaziz was still aroused after sex with the other woman in the apartment and accidentally fell directly upon the alleged victim lying on a sofa.IroniesQ Christopher Manney was fired from the Milwaukee Police Department in 2014 after shooting a black suspect to death in a case bearing some similarity to 2015 shootings that produced Black Lives MatterŽ protests „ not fired for the shooting (adjudged not excessive forceŽ) but for improper actions that preceded the shooting (not announcing a valid reason for a pat down and conducting a not-by-the-book pat down). Two days before the firing, he had filed a disability claim for post-traumatic stress disorder from the shooting and aftermath, and in November 2015 the citys Annuity and Pension Board, following city law, approved the claim. Thus, Mr. Manney, despite having been subsequently fired, retired with full disability, with basically the same take-home pay he was receiving when fired. [Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 11-5-2015; WITI-TV (Milwaukee), 10-16-2015] Q In November, as anti-Muslim tensions arose in several U.S. cities follow-ing the Paris terrorist attack, two chap-ters of the Satanic Temple church (San Jose, Calif., and Minneapolis) offered to protect Muslims who feared a backlash. The Minneapolis group offered just big dudes walking you to where you need to be,Ž for example, grocery shopping „ an offer of genuine compassion for our fel-low human beings.Ž (The offer was sub-sequently rescinded by the Minneapolis churchs executive ministry, reasoning that they are not a personal security service.Ž) Wrong place, wrong timeIn November, a 62-year-old customer at Ancient City Shooting Range in St. Augustine was hit in the lower abdomen area by another shooter, 71, because the victim was standing behind the target (for some reason,Ž was all a fire-res-cue spokesman would say). The shooter thought the man was elsewhere on the property. Least-competent criminalsOops! (1) Jasper Harrison, 47, working inside the storage unit in Edgewater, where he grows his marijuana, heard a helicopter overhead on Dec. 9, pan-icked, and called 911 to turn himself in to pre-empt what he presumed was a SWAT raid. Actually, the helicopter belonged to a local news station headed elsewhere, but police later arrested Mr. Harrison based on the 911 call. (2) Lloyd Franklin, 34 and suspected in a North Carolina double murder, fatally shot himself in a Bensalem, Pa., motel room in November when police knocked on the door. However, cops actually had come to arrest another man in the room on a parole violation.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENTA GUIDE TO THE ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT SCENE B1 JANUARY 7-13, 2016 HAPPENINGS BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@” Carlton Ward Jr. has had a brilliant career taking photographs of wild beauty in places all over the world. Hell speak about his return to his Florida roots in his book Florida Wildlife Corridor: Jour-ney Through the Heart of Flori-da,Ž at 7 p.m. Jan. 13 at the Johnson History Museum in downtown West Palm Beach. The environmental photojournalist documented the Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition: Ever-glades to Okefenokee a 1,000-mile expedition over 100 days that left from Everglades National Park in January 2012, and trekked to Okefe-nokee National Wildlife Refuge in southern Georgia. Their purpose was to increase public awareness and generate sup-port for the Florida Wildlife Corridor project. With biologist Joe Guthrie and conservationist Mallory Lykes Dimmitt Mr. Ward traversed wildlife habitats, watersheds, working farms and ranches, travel-ing on foot, mountain bike, standup paddleboard, kayak, horseback and occasionally swimming. Mr. Ward, a National Geographic photographer, is well known for his projects with the elephants of Mali for Smithsonian Magazine, and his first book, The Edge of Africa,Ž catalogued the eight months he spent in the tropical rain forests of Gabon. Back on American soil, Mr. Ward published Florida Cowboys,Ž which earned him a Florida Book Award Silver Medal. Mr. Ward will speak in the third floor courtroom inside the historic 1916 Palm Beach County Court-house (which also houses the Richard and Pat Johnson History Museum) at 300 N. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach. A reception and book signing will be held following the lecture on the museums second floor. Books will be on sale. Admission is free for members, $20 nonmembers.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 7-13, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS The value of tensionI dated a nice young man early last year. He was kind and decent, a good father and upstanding member of the community. He courted me in a straightforward, polite way, and I enjoyed our time together. At that point I was six months in to writing my new book, and every week Id take pages to share with my writing group. Until I met this nice young man, my books story had been full of tension. The characters were gritty and rough, and the narrative unfolded in seedy places. It was a good read. But when I took my pages to my writing group after I met this nice man and we started dating, they looked at me with con-cerned expressions. This just isnt what we expect from you,Ž they told me. The problem? All the tension had drained out of my story. Those gritty characters suddenly became gentle. They stopped fighting and cussing. They got good jobs. What happened?Ž my critique group asked. I pretended as if I didnt know. But of course I knew. That nice young man was messing up my story. We eventually parted ways, he and I, and what followed was a turbulent time in my personal life. The suitors who came after him were unpredictable, and they left me tense and anxious. I didnt sleep well. I had trouble eating. But the pages I brought to my weekly group? This is much better,Ž they said. Youve found your story.Ž They were right. All the tension that had been missing from the narrative cropped up again. I was back in it, even if my own life was in tumult. Its true that the mythology of writers and artists includes a certain amount of drama, and that drama often revolves around addiction and promiscuity. I had always thought that great artists struggled with these issues as a way of numbing their demons. After all, it takes an unbal-anced mind to sit in front of a blank page or canvas, day after day, creating a world from nothing. But what if its the other way around? What if instead of trying to soothe their demons, artists are actually trying to provoke them? Perhaps, on some level, we realize that a too-easy life never yields great work. My writer friend Laura is going through a particularly tough time „ man troubles, work troubles, family troubles „ but she said to me at dinner the other night, You know whats crazy? Ive written more in the last few days than I have in the last six months.Ž I nodded sympathetically. Of course I understood. Sometimes I think we „ not just artists and writers, but everyone „ make the mistake of thinking we should aim for a life stripped of all tension. What a bloodless way to live. Thats why I encourage people to live wilder, to be bolder, to make mis-takes and to tackle what frightens them. When it comes time to look back on our narratives, I guarantee that the parts with the most tension will be the most satisfy-ing. And isnt that what matters?

CONTRACT BRIDGE A delicate operation BY STEVE BECKER Undoubtedly, your batting average as declarer would rise appreciably if you could see the defenders hands instead of having to guess the location of the missing high cards and the distribution of the suits. Sometimes, though, it isnt easy to find the winning line of play even with all 52 cards in view. Admittedly such hands are rare, but they are fascinating when they do arise. Here is such a case. West leads the queen of clubs against your four-heart contract, and you win with the ace. Probably the instinctive play at trick two is to lead a low dia-mond and finesse dummys nine after West follows low. This play does not succeed in the actual deal, because East wins with the ten and returns a trump. Eventually you lose three diamonds and a heart and go down one. Leading a dia-mond to the jack instead might backfire if it turned out that West had the ten. Oddly enough, the best approach by far is to enter dummy with a spade at trick two and lead the nine of diamonds. If East follows low, so do you, and your troubles are over (even if West is able to win with the ten). But if, as is likely in the actual case, East covers the nine with the ten, you play the queen. (It does East no good to rise with the king because the most you could then lose would be two diamonds and a heart.) West takes the queen with the ace but is stymied. He cannot afford to lead a trump, so lets say he returns a club. You ruff and lead another diamond. East wins and returns a trump, but you dont jeopardize the contract by taking a finesse. Instead, you win with the ace and ruff your last diamond to assure making four. In fact, this is the right line of play even if the East-West cards are not known, but it is hard in actual practice to resist leading diamonds initially from the South hand. Q

But theres a small principal cast of family members and players. I love this,Ž Mr. Martino said. Its what Im all excited about. We work together well.Ž Maltz favorite Matt Loehr returns to play Rogers. He and Mr. Martino have worked together at the theater on its productions of The Music ManŽ and Crazy for You.Ž He promises to have a rope trick or two up his sleeve. That was my first big concern when I was asked to do this. I thought Id take the summer and figure out how to begin this,Ž he said. But living in North Carolina, where he is a guest faculty member of Univer-sity of North Carolinas School of the Arts, yielded few opportunities to learn roping, so he went online. Self-teach is what you do. I spent hours just trying to get the regular spin-ning part done,Ž he said. Its 80 percent mistakes and 20 percent luck getting it. Im hoping Im going to make it more 50/50.Ž If he was worried, his choreographer was not. Theres no challenges ever with Matt Loehr,Ž said Shea Sullivan, who worked with Mr. Loehr in Music ManŽ and Crazy For You.Ž Theres flexibility in staging this show. Were putting together tap and rope tricks so well have rope-tap,Ž said Ms. Sullivan, who came of age in South Florida. The team will be working around the shows legendary staircase. If youre going to do the Follies, you need to have steps. We have a staircase and it lights up and it dominates the staging in a fantastic way in which it always leaves you in the Follies,Ž Mr. Martino said. Thats one original element the creative team had to keep. Its challenging too. Its LED-lighted, so theres lights on every step. The original show on Broadway used those steps,Ž he said. He shared a story from the theaters producing artistic director and chief executive, Andrew Kato. Andrew tells a great story about talking to Tommy Tune about that, say-ing, Do you ever object to people using those steps like that? and he said, Dar-ling, thats the way I designed the show. I dont know how you do it without them.Ž Clearly Mr. Loehr will be busy onstage, what with the ropes and the stairs. But so will Laura Hodos, who plays his wife, Betty. It needs someone whos got killer vocal chops and whos got comic chops, whos gorgeous and also whos got that sensibility of playing the play,Ž Mr. Mar-tino said. Youve got to have somebody who can step out side of it and inside of it and who can keep up with Matt.Ž Maltz audiences may remember Ms. Hodos from such shows as Love is LoveŽ and Jolson at the Winter Gar-den,Ž and she has proven herself all but overwhelming as the Witch in Caldwell Theatres production of Stephen Sond-heims Into the Woods.Ž Shes approaching the show cold.I had never seen it, Ive only listened to it and read it. Lets see what I can make without any idea of what it should look like. I dont have a ton of precon-ceived notions,Ž she said. Ms. Hodos promises her take on Betty will be unique. She has one opportunity to let him have it. Its very interesting. Ive been listening to the CD over and over and over again. Then we started rehears-als, I found myself trying to sing it like Dee Hoty (the original Betty),Ž she said. Its not a matter of unlearning. Its like, thats a great historical lesson. We start over and continue that journey. But you have to wait for it because its not in Act 1.Ž The show does not offer a hard and fast bio of Betty, or of Rogers, for that matter. What we find is this essence of what made them work,Ž Mr. Martino, the director, said. Telling this story in the style of a revue is very liberating, he said. Its incredibly free to do a show when there are no rules about what they couldnt do,Ž he said. I like that every-things game. Its a pink show, shows that are about fluff and sparkle.Ž And through that, an audience can embrace Rogers wisdom. Will said fantastic, important things in the most genial of ways that absolute-ly make you stop and think right now, and his quotes also take on the crazy melancholy of the tenor of today,Ž Mr. Martino said. Never mind that Rogers died in a plane crash in 1935. Take what is perhaps the performers best-known quote: I never met a man I didnt like.Ž Nobody says that now. Everybody says, I dont like you. You cant come to my house or my country. I know it sounds trite but its the truth,Ž Mr. Mar-tino said. It makes the case that sometimes the simplest of messages can be the most sophisticated. What is surprising, fantastic about Will is how sophisticated he was in the way he thought. It all came through in that geniality. His political humor was very pointed,Ž Mr. Martino said. And, by all counts, still relevant.

No nation in the history of the world was ever sitting as pretty. If we want anything, all we have to do is go and buy it on credit.” “This would be a great time in the world for some man to come along that knew something.” “We will never have true civilization until we have learned to recognize the rights of others.” “Mothers are the only race of people that speak the same tongue. A mother in Manchuria could converse with a mother in Nebraska and never miss a word.” “My ancestors didn’t come over on the Mayflower, but they met the boat.” “Villains are getting as thick as college degrees and sometimes on the same fellow.” “When the judgment day comes, civilization will have an alibi: ‘I never took a human life I only sold the fellow the gun to take it with.’ “They want peace. But they want a gun to get it with.” “A man that don’t love a horse, there is something the matter with him.” “There ain’t nothing to life but satisfaction.” “No man is great if he thinks he is.”“I never met a man I didn’t like.” “We shouldn’t elect a President. We should elect a magician.”“Why don’t they pass a Constitutional Amendment prohibiting anybody from learning anything? If it works as good as Prohibition did, in five years we will have the smartest people on earth.” — Will Rogers Memorial Museums (

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Dealing with someones disappointment can be difficult for Aquarians, who always try to avoid giving pain. But a full explanation and a show of sympathy can work wonders. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Getting a job-related matter past some major obstacles should be easier this week. A personal situation might take a surprising but not necessarily unwelcome turn by the weeks end. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Aspects call for care in preparing material for sub-mission. Although you might find it bother-some to go over what youve done, the fact is, rechecking could be worth your time and effort. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The week is favorable for Bovines who welcome change. New career opportunities wait to be checked out. You also might want to get started on that home makeover youve been considering. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might have to be extra careful to protect that surprise you have planned, thanks to a certain snoopy someone who wants to know more about your plans than youre willing to share. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Family ties are strong this week, although an old and still-unresolved problem might create some unpleasant moments. If so, look to straighten the situation out once and for all. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Although the Lion might see it as an act of loyalty and courage to hold on to an increasingly shaky position, it might be wiser to make changes now to prevent a possible meltdown later. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your gift for adding new people to your circle of friends works overtime this week, thanks largely to contacts you made during the holidays. A surprise awaits you at the weeks end. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Dont hide your talents. Its a good time to show what you can do to impress people who can do a lot for you. A dispute with a family member might still need some smoothing over. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Be open with your colleagues about your plan to bring a workplace matter out into the open. Youll want their support, and theyll want to know how youll pull it off. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Trying to patch up an unraveling relationship is often easier said than done. But it helps to discuss and work out any problems that arise along the way. BORN THIS WEEK: You can be both a dreamer and a doer. You consider helping others to be an important part of your life. Q PUZZLES


GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 7-13, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B13 Ive got to tell you, its easier,Ž he said. After playing with these guys and working with your crew for so long, theyre already kind of expecting your next move. You can be totally off the rails from where you thought you were going to go that night and theyll be right with you.Ž Hell be counting on that crew when he plays three nights Jan. 14-16 at the BB&T Center in Sunrise. The guy who hauls the load for all of us on stage is (multi-instrumen-talist) Jimmy Mattingly. Mike Palmer, the drummer, hauls the load,Ž he said. Then we spoiled ourselves and brought out singers wed sang with for the last 25 years and never had them on tour. They haul the load. So its pretty easy.Ž Mr. Brooks also gets a break midway through the show when Trisha Year-wood comes out and does a mini-set with the band thats a combination of her and Mr. Brooks longtime touring groups. But Ms. Yearwood, who is Mrs. Brooks, brings more to the tour than just her songs. The greatest gift Ive ever been given in my life from God and the people is they let me have time to raise my babies,Ž Mr. Brooks said. The second greatest gift Ive ever been given is to get to play music again. I get to tour the world with the love of my life, my best friend and play with my best friends. You cant ask for more than that.Ž Mr. Brooks shows are about playing what he calls the old stuff.Ž And hell change the set on the fly when he sees a sign requesting a song or when the mood strikes him. But its a certainty The Thunder Rolls,Ž Rodeo,Ž The Dance,Ž Callin Baton RougeŽ and Friends in Low PlacesŽ will come off the stage each night. Those songs are now country music classic. But when he broke out in the early 90s, Mr. Brooks wasnt embraced by traditionalists „ far from it. He laughed when asked if he remembered when he was the ruination of country music.Ž Every new artist is.Ž Now hes cited as true country „ Isnt that crazy? Its just time. Everything comes back full circle.Ž So where does he fit now?You know what, Ive got the best of both worlds,Ž Mr. Brooks said. I still dont think I fit, but I belong. That was a big thing. When they gave the nod, when they inducted me into the Country Music Hall of Fame, I realized Im different from everyone here and I belong here. That was sweet. That was hard for me to say.Ž Accepting the hall of fame induction wasnt easy either. Youre married to someone who belongs in there too, whos not in there,Ž Mr. Brooks said of Ms. Yearwood. And all the people that got you there, theres a lot of them who arent there „ Keith Whitley, Randy Travis, Ricky Skaggs, youve got to be kidding me. That was a little hard for me, but as long as they knew I knew, I accepted it with honor. Now its my job to get those guys in.Ž So Mr. Brooks is in with the legends, but does he see himself as influencing the new generation of country? I didnt until this new record,Ž he said, mentioning his 2014 release, Man Against Machine.Ž I didnt write a lot on this record. But I kept finding things that people said wow, that sounds like you. Its because the writers were raised on Garth stuff. They come to you and go Man, I was raised on your stuff. I played your stuff in so many bars. So their writing reflects that, the same way my writing reflects, hopefully, Haggard, Jones, Strait, Whitley.Ž Another concert staple is Im Much Too Young (To Feel This Damned Old).Ž In the middle of that song, Mr. Brooks will raise his black cowboy hat to the sky, saying God Bless Chris LeDoux,Ž paying tribute to the late singer who inspired his show. But many of the young people who turn up for Mr. Brooks concerts likely have no idea who Mr. LeDoux, the rodeo cowboy turned rodeo honky tonker, is. Amen,Ž he said, adding that its his responsibility to pass on the music and spirit of those who inspired him. Its always up to us to help the youth remember those people we think are worth remembering,Ž he said. You pull a youth over today and ask them who (Merle) Haggard and (George) Jones is, unfortunately, theyre not going to know. But the weird thing is you start singing their music and theyll start sing-ing,Ž Mr. Brooks said. They know the music. Thats the great thing about the new generation. When me and you were kids, we wouldnt be caught dead listen-ing to our dads music. But these kids know their music, they know my music, they know my dads music. They know it all so, good for them.Ž It would have been hard to miss Mr. Brooks music, especially if anyone in the household was a country music fan in the 90s. He made his presence felt with his self-titled first album, which included his first No. 1 country single, If Tomorrow Never Comes.Ž But it was Mr. Brooks second album, 1990s No Fences,Ž that made history. Featuring four No. 1 country singles, including his signature song, Friends in Low Places,Ž sales of the album reached 17 million copies. As subsequent albums „ Ropin the Wind,Ž The Chase,Ž In Pieces,Ž Fresh HorsesŽ and SevensŽ „ arrived and topped the album chart, he continued to hold his place as countrys most popu-lar artist with his stack of No. 1 singles growing with each album. Only when Mr. Brooks confused audiences by taking on the identity of a fictional rock singer, Chris Gaines, on his 1999 album, Garth Brooks inƒThe Life of Chris Gaines,Ž did he stumble commercially. After his ninth studio album, 2001s Scarecrow,Ž he stepped away from music. He took 13 years off to raise his daughters. Now that the youngest is in college, hes back. And, he has no plans to retire „ ever.The thing that drives you is what makes you live and breathe,Ž he said. As a father, its your children. As an artist, its the music. Heres the trick. Its not our say how long we get to do it. Thats whats really frustrating. Its like an athlete, thank God this isnt athletics or youd be done at 25. But its the thought of not only getting to do it, but getting to do it as long as you want to,Ž he said. Trust me, theres no time thats humanly even close to that. No matter how long its going to be, its not going be as long as I want it to be. But I think thats the drive ... getting to do it again. When those lights go down and it goes up, you get to do it one more night. Thats worth it all, right there.Ž Q BROOKSFrom page 1 >>What: Garth Brooks, with Tricia Yearwood >>When: 7:30 p.m. Jan. 14, 7 p.m. Jan. 15-16. >>Where: BB&T Center, Sunrise >>Cost: Start at $64.48 >>Info: or thebbtcenter. com. in the know

Unfortunately, much of the value we assign to things is tied to sentiment „ Grandma always displayed that in the living room cabinet.Ž Grandpa said Abraham Lincoln gave this to his grand-pa during the Civil War.Ž And so on.But markets shift and that priceless cut-glass vase for which Grandma paid serious bucks in the 1960s may well be worth less than what she paid half a century ago. And that gift from Lincoln? Family lore has a way of evolving. Perhaps it did come from our 16th president. Or not. So how do you know when you do have a treasure? Look it up.A simple Google search can reveal much, as can eBay „ I call it the worlds marketplace. Do an advanced search on eBay and look up completed items to see what similar pieces have fetched at auction. Keep in mind that prices may be higher or lower, depending on market situa-tions. In South Florida, for example, fewer and fewer people are collecting things, probably because of the economic crisis and probably because they sold their antiques when they left their homes up North. After all, they adopted a more casual lifestyle here in Florida. If you think you truly have treasure, pay to get the item appraised, and remember: No legitimate appraiser will charge you for an appraisal then offer to buy your items. I recommend people seek out an appraiser through a trade group such as The International Society of Appraisers (, which holds members to ethical standards. Remember that a dealer typically can afford to pay you no more than 20 per-cent or so of what he or she expects to fetch retail, except on more expensive items. Many appraisers can help you broker an expensive item for auction or consignment in a market where it can fetch top dollar. Otherwise, get the piece out, display it and enjoy it. My guess is Grandma was on to something. Q scott SIMMONS COLLECTORS CORNER One thing we have in common: We all think our stuff is treasureLOOK WHAT I FOUND Bought: Judys Antiques & Jewelry, 12710 McGregor Blvd., No. 3, Fort Myers; 239-481-9600. Cost: $55 The Skinny: Weve got to hand it to whoever made this vase „ at nearly 12 inches high, its one of the largest weve seen in quite some time. Its in a soulful robins egg blue glass that some folks call opaline. But we wont call it that because it does not have the fire of opalescence, as does the best of opaline glass. We cant quite put a finger on when it was made. Thats the problem with a popular motif. This shape first was made in Victorian times, and the design was oft repeated. Weve seen any number of small ones produced by Fenton, Imperial and other American companies. But its not often we see these large vases. Were guessing this dates from the 20th century „ American glass firms repeated this motif throughout the 1930s, 40s and 50s. As for the epitome of cool? Well, this nails it.

YesAs long as you can still grab a breath, you fight,Ž Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) tells his ailing son Hawk (For-rest Goodluck) in the opening moments of The Revenant,Ž the latest from Bird-manŽ director Alejandro Gonzalez Inar-ritu. They are words that Glass himself will soon live by, and an apt message for anyone struggling through a hardship. Such words also describe the troubled production of the film. It was shot in chronological order over the span of nine months in (mostly) northern Canada using only natural light, meaning they could only shoot for small portions of each day. Mr. DiCaprio got the flu multiple times, and some c rewmembers quit due to harsh conditions (one called it a living hellŽ). Whats more, the budget soared to $135 million and weather was a constant headache (even a makeup bag froze to the floor). None of this, of course, should matter to viewers in the end, because the movie is either good or it isnt. While the act-ing and cinematography are tremendous, watching The RevenantŽ is an alto-gether unpleasant experience. When its over youll feel dirty and like you need a shower. Theres not one scene, moment or even glimpse of happiness. The entire picture is a glum exercise in survival that only gets worse, never better. Its based on a true story in which Mr. DiCaprios character is a fur trapper on a hunting expedition thats under constant threat of attack from the Natives and French hunters. Its the 1820s in a lawless land, and the more fur pelts you bring home to sell, the better. While separated from his group, Glass is mauled by a grizzly bear in one of the most frightening, brutal and horrifying scenes you can imagine; three weeks of rehearsal and a computer-generated bear make this a sequence you will not soon forget. While Glass is cared for by his fellow hunters, hes also slowing them down. Believing Glass death is near, the cap-tain (Domhnall Gleeson) asks Chip (Will Poulter) and Fitzgerald (an excellent Tom Hardy) to stay behind with the teenage Hawk and Glass to make sure Glass gets a proper burial. Fearing attack, Fitzgerald panics, kills Hawk and buries Glass alive before leaving to catch up with the other men. What proceeds is nearly two hours of Glass struggling to find those who wronged him and enact his revenge, all while terribly injured and battling the elements. Smaller moments, such as Glass trying to drink water only to have it come out through the gash the bear left in his neck, may be more notable, but consider Mr. DiCaprios performance as a whole: He goes about an hour with no dialog at all, relying on his bearded, marred face and heavy breathing to relay all that Glass is thinking and feeling. His character also endures freezing rapids, starvation, frigid temperatures, constant danger and fall-ing off a cliff. Most of the time all we hear is groaning and struggling, and in a way that says it all. Mr. Inarritu and Mark L. Smiths screenplay (based in part on the novel by Michael Punke) doesnt need to give Glass more dialog because his moti-vations are obvious: Survive and avenge. One reason Glass desperation feels so palpably real is two-time Oscar-winning cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki (GravityŽ), who creates a bold and dar-ing visual experience. His camera moves swiftly and fluidly amongst the men and the landscape, with frequent close-ups of characters showing the anguish felt by all due to the elements. Note how low-angle shots that look up to faces, often with trees high above their heads, and shots of mountains and other natural elements all suggest how insignificant humans are to their larger surroundings. They might be fighting one another, but the common enemy of nature is their biggest foe of all. At 156 minutes, The RevenantŽ is an endurance test to sit through. Glass jour-ney takes him from one near escape to the next, and after a while the awfulness of his situation becomes overwhelming. This is a bold and daring movie, an origi-nal tale told with real guts and convic-tion, but its not enjoyable to watch. And yet theres so much to admire about it that you cannot deny its uniqueness and all that it does well. You might not like The Revenant,Ž but you will respect it. Q dan >> A lack of snow led to a six-week shooting hiatus that sh ifted the production of “The Revenant” to Patagonia, Argentina, and added an unexpected $10 million to the budget. FILM CAPSULES The Hateful Eight ++1/2 (Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh) Eight scoundrels are trapped inside a Wyoming log cabin dur-ing a blizzard, and not all make it out alive. Writer/director Quentin Tarantino (Djan-go UnchainedŽ) over writes and under edits, but darn if there isnt something deliciously cinematic about it. Rated R.Joy ++ (Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper) With her personal and professional life a mess, Joy (Ms. Lawrence) invents a Miracle MopŽ that becomes a huge sensation „ if her family doesnt screw it up for her. Writer/director David O. Russell (American HustleŽ) usually imbues his movies with a flair that makes them burst with life and energy, but thats oddly missing here. Rated PG-13.Carol +++1/2 (Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara, Kyle Chandler) In the 1950s, Carol (Ms. Blanchett), whos about to divorce her husband (Mr. Chandler), finds herself attracted to a department store clerk (Ms. Mara) whos unsure of what she wants. The performances, costuming, production design and and musical score make this one of the best films of 2015. Rated R.The Big Short ++++ (Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell, Brad Pitt) The mortgage crisis and succeeding 2008 economic collapse are given fresh insight and explained clearly and comically in co-writer and director Adam McKays won-derful adaptation of Michael Lewis book. An absolute treat, it should be a Best Pic-ture Oscar nominee. Rated R.

Olive Ave., downtown West Palm Beach; 655-2511 or The Price: $12.95 plus $1.50 each for toppings. The Details: Looking for a neighborhood joint in downtown West Palm Beach? Then look no farther than Hot Pie. We love to sit at the counter at this restaurant, where chef/owner John Ries regales customers with tales of pizzas past. The tall tales are great, but the pizza remains in a class of its own, courtesy of Mr. Ries coal oven. Expect a crispy, lighter-than-air crust, piquant tomato sauce and plentiful top-pings. We had ours with kalamata olives and pepperoni during a recent visit, and we loved how the salty slightly bitter flavor of the olives contrasted with the earthy spice of the pepperoni. And is it our imagination, or do Mr. Ries tales grow ever taller? One can hope. Q „ Sc ott SimmonsFLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Pastry Chef Rachel Vondell has been putting smiles on peoples faces with her desserts since she was a small child, growing up in upstate New York. How can you be upset when somebody hands you a plate of cookies?Ž she laughed. When I was a little girl, my mom used to make amazing birthday cakes for me. My aunt made the pies. I developed such a love for it. It was kind of the only thing that made sense to me. I started working in a pastry style kitchen making desserts when I was 15.Ž Fortunately, the Culinary Instit utes Hyde Park campus lay a short distance away, providing a valuable opportuni-ty to enhance Chef Vondells cooking and pastry skills. She counts Francisco Migoya, former executive pastry chef at the renowned French Laundry restau-rant, as her most important influence in her training. He was so knowledgeable and a great professor at the CIA,Ž she said. Chef Vondell moved to Florida in 2012 when she received an offer to take over the pastry chef duties at the Ritz-Carlton in Manalapan. When the hotel changed hands, she read an article about Maxs Harvest, sister restaurant to Maxs Social House in Delray Beach and decided to make a move. I really liked what they were trying to do, working the whole farm-to-table concept with local, sustainable prod-ucts and building a community among restaurants,Ž she said. I resonated with that. Growing up in upstate New York, thats a way of life. So I called the chef and next day I went in for an interview. Now I split time between Maxs Harvest and Maxs Social House.Ž For her pastry menu, she likes putting an elevated spinŽ on everyones favorite childhood dessert snacks. Remember eating Smores around a campfire?Ž she said. Ive developed that into a Smores ice cream sandwich (two for $12), taking those basic flavors and transferring them to a dessert adults would like to eat. Thats a graham cracker ice cream „ made in house, as all of our ice cream is made „ with fresh marsh-mallows and a chocolate cookie. Another favorite is Baklava, made with OGP ice cream ($11). That stands for orange/ginger/pistachio-based ice cream, which mirrors the ginger in the honey syrup on and the pistachios in the baklava.Ž Every dessert we serve is big enough to share,Ž she said. Not that youd want to. At Maxs we treat you like youre a family coming to our house for dinner. That means lots of delicious food to share while you have a friendly conver-sation over it. Our food is meant to open everyone up and bring people together.Ž Chef Vondell said she eventually would like to explore chocolate dcor and cakes. I want to learn more about garnishes,Ž she said. You can really elevate a plate with a nice, shiny, tempered piece of chocolate in a fun shape. Youll find des-serts like these in hotels or higher-end restaurants, because theyre a little more expensive to make. Plus you need proper temperatures to make them. Id also like to get more into wedding cakes, just to make my self more well rounded. I love to be constantly learning.Ž Rachel VondellAge: 24 Original Hometown: Red Hook, N.Y.

BY KELLY MERRITTkmerritt@” oridaweekly.comA childs bedroom is a sacred place, filled with dreams of superheroes, wishes on stars and where little ones greet and end the day. Its where precious drawings adorn the walls and plans are hatched for elaborate tree house adventures. To create a magical room for her grandchildren, one North Palm Beach grand-mother called upon a place that has spe-cialized in joyous spaces for more than 100 years, Pioneer Linens in West Palm Beach. Our client needed bed linens and bedskirts for twin beds, a set of bunkbeds, drapery panels and bath items with rugs,Ž said Colleen Feliciano, who also spruced up an adjacent bath with bath linens, tow-els, rugs and flowers. The homeowner is no stranger to using linens to transform a room. She has three homes, all of which Pioneer Linens has helped accent. As someone who appreci-ates fine linens she wanted fabrics that would help tie the grandchildrens room together. It all begins with the conversation, and clients bring in pictures and choose monograms among other items,Ž said Ms. Feliciano, regarding the process of dress-ing a room. Think of the bed like you would dress yourself „ the more patterns you have on the bed, the more interesting it is.Ž There are seemingly endless options at Pioneer Linens for doing just that. For example, in the sheeting department, one may choose from white or ivory to a broad range of color sheets, then decide on lace detail, embroidery, classic hem stitched and even satin stitched. Clients can come in with a picture, even of a tile pattern from their floor that they like, and we can extrapolate that image and infuse it onto towels or whatever linen they choose,Ž said Ms. Feliciano. They can even bring in a piece of upholstery or wallpaper and we can have it digitized, and adjust the color „ or clients can select from hundreds of fabrics we already have.Ž Ms. Feliciano and the staff at the store can customize everything a homeowner 4 LUXE LIVING JANUARY 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLY DESIGN MAKEOVERPrecious MakeoverPioneer Linen offers custom covers for the whole family SPECIALIZING IN HAND PAINTED FURNITURE USING CHALK PAINT’ BY ANNIE SLOAN NOW OPEN!

They were seasonal and weekend homes built on 25and 50-foot lots that people acquired when they bought farmland west of town. Most were built in the first 40 years of the 20th century, and stylistically, they range from Mission to Art Deco „ some even are a mix. Those houses are soon to be the subject of a coffee-table book. But you dont have to wait until the book is published to take a peek. The first Inside the Cottages of Lake Worth Tour is set for 1 p.m.-6 p.m. Jan. 24. Visitors can stroll through more than 10 cottages in the Mango Groves and Downtown Jewel neighborhoods. Hors doeuvres and beverages are included and there will be an exhibit by local artists in one of the gardens. A trolley will be available. Tickets are $30 in advance, $35 day of event (if available). No refunds; event held rain or shine. Organizers say the event is not appropriate for children or pets.

BY KELLY MERRITTkmerritt@” oridaweekly.comany homeowners see the kitchen as the most vital room in the house. There is proof of that in the extraordinary budgets people allow for kitchens, the thought and effort expended to install them, and the time we spend as families enjoying them. If ever there was a place to catch a case of kitchen envy, its Downsview Kitchens in Juno Beach. Theyve been sending home cooks into a dither since 1967. Downsview Kitchens, a leader in the kitchen design industry, has been in business since 1967. Teams of world-class designers, technicians, craftsmen, finishers and artisans assemble their high-end kitchens, leaving the homeowners to simply stand back and watch their dream kitchen spring to life before them. Hundreds of color and finish combinations exist to allow homeowners to create unique designs of style and function. As design consultant Sean Daigle said, modern kitchens should marry traditional craftsmanship with high-tech innovation. 10 LUXE LIVING JANUARY 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLYCOVER STORY “So much chopping, peeling, slicing and dicing happen in a kitchen, the countertops are yet another way homeowners can merge personal style and function..”COURTESY PHOTOSSprawling kitchens and sleek lines define options at Downsview Kitchens in Juno Beach.M STYLE RECIPE STYLE RECIPEDownsview Kitchens sends home cooks swooning


“Appliance integration can include replacing large, unsightly appliances with concealed, fully integrated appliances that blend into the kitchen, even disguised with cabinetry matching panels... ” — Sean Daigle, design consultantCOVER STORY FLORIDA WEEKLY JANUARY 2016 LUXE LIVING 11Going green in the kitchenMany cabinetry manufacturers have become environmentally friendly, and are offering green products and materi-als through more environmentally con-scious manufacturing techniques using earth friendly material,Ž Mr. Daigle said, of practices that create less waste, use formaldehyde free adhesives and paints and sealers that are easy on the planet. Though cabinetry hasnt always been thought of as high tech, it is now. Cabi-nets are a critical component of a sophis-ticated kitchen. New cabinetry has front materials and clever interior solutions with handle-free designs, glides and hinges allowing effortless closing motion that prevents slamming and LED lighting incorporated inside, above or below the cabinetry,Ž said Mr. Daigle. He also points to appliance manufacturers making more energy efficient products, like dishwashers that require less water and sink faucets that have advanced to touch system that turns the water flow on or off. Appliance integration can include replacing large, unsightly appliances with concealed, fully integrated appli-ances that blend into the kitchen, even disguised with cabinetry matching pan-els and that can accept cabinet door hardware,Ž he said. Mr. Daigle has an enviable kitchen of his own that includes a Wolf cooktop and ovens, a Miele Coffee machine and a Sub-Zero refrigerator in his transitional kitchen. Modified shaker door cabinets and frosted glass complete the look along with a cabinet that features a zebrawood accent. He incorporated stainless-steel drawers and oak that compliment his induction cooktop and hood. Its all about mixing styles and a homeowners unique design,Ž said Mr. Daigle, pointing to why the most social place in the house has also become more open. Everyone gravitates to that space so open kitchen floorplans create flow from the kitchen to the living room or family room, which is also why todays kitchen should be functional and family friendly.ŽCounter cultureSo much chopping, peeling, slicing and dicing happen in a kitchen, the coun-tertops are yet another way homeowners can merge personal style and function. Here going green is ever as important. Many surface options such as limestone, engineered stones, wood, stainless steel, and marble have increased in popularity and countertop surfaces are also where you can use eco-friendly materials such as recycled glass, recycled metals, concrete, or reclaimed wood,Ž said Mr. Daigle, adding there is another thought process that he encourages homeowners not to ignore: resale. This is always on homeowners minds and neutral palettes tend to be more appealing to a broader audience than an unconventional color might be, plus a neutral color palette also opens the doors for bold color choices in backsplashes, wall coverings, and acces-sories.Ž As a homeowner, choosing countertops, cabinetry and appliances means lots of second-guessing, but consider a few key elements and a successful kitch-en design will result. For example, when choosing a countertop, keep in mind that everything will impact those choices. Choosing a cook top and built-in oven instead of a slide-in range will affect electrical. Consider repairs to cabinets „ will your choice chip or scratch? It may be better to select eco-material that is resistant to dings rather than a painted finish. When remodeling your kitchen, keep a kitchen checklist that includes notes on important decisions. Compile the num-ber of people who will be cooking and eating in the kitchen at the same time. In 2016, Downsview Kitchens plans to showcase new door styles, finishes and hardware, along with innovative materi-als like reconstituted veneer and tex-tured laminates. The biggest news is the expansion of the factory showroom in Juno Beach, a new renovation in the factory show-room in Boston and completion of its showroom at the factory in Mississauga, Ontario. Downsview Kitchen President and owner Mike DUva oversees operations of the company that has showrooms across the U.S. and in Canada from his office in Mississauga. He said the company is preparing for a milestone that will occur in just over a year. We are moving close to the companys 50th anniversary which is very exciting,Ž said the man who came from Italy to Canada as a young man and is a furniture maker by trade. A 20-, 30-, or 45-year employee at Downsview is not just rare, but its actu-ally more common, and my son Clau-dio and daughter Tania have undertaken important roles in the company and stand to be leading the next generation in what is yet to come.ŽDownsview of Juno 12800 U.S. Highway 1, Suite100 Juno Beach 799-7700; COURTESY PHOTOSAbove Left: Cabinets like these offer more storage without taking up floor space.Above Right: Downsview Kitchens President and Owner Mike D’Uva and design consultant Sean Daigle pause for a moment in one of their kitchens.Left: Expect to see more appliances that integrate seamlessly in 2016.

TRAVEL FLORIDA WEEKLY JANUARY 2016 LUXE LIVING 13 NŽLZFZWŽZWNZqWWTTWb2WpŽFWbŽWŽW2ŽFL W1HW__$WWU$4U_†4†T†New Orleans architecture and eateries strike delicious chords BY KELLY MERRITTkmerritt@” oridaweekly.comNew Orleans is a glorious clash of cultures. It will always be like a pot of gumbo: people from all walks of life and perspectives bringing their influence into the city. It speaks to the river cul-ture that throughout history has been a main thoroughfare of commerce, expos-ing inhabitants to ideas and ethos. Two things that go hand in hand in New Orleans, architecture and eating, are as varied as the city itself. The Hotel Mazarin in the French Quarter is more like a familiar, grand destination youve loved for years, even if its your first time staying there. Impossibly charming and steeped in NoLa architectural flavor, the outside windows of each room on the courtyard are flanked by charming shutter s. Luxury linens and attentive service abound here. A perk to staying here is waking up to the smell of strong coffee from the courtyard below. Once youve shaken off the night before, take time to sit by the fountain surrounded by romantic foli-age, breathing in the views of wrought iron vistas that tower above you. In the Hotel Mazarins alluring lobby, you cant help but daydream about who has walked through its doors before you and where theyve traveled. Its tempting to check in to the hotel and quickly get out on the town, but make time to imbibe at Patricks Bar Vin, the vibrant French Quarter wine bar adjacent to Hotel Mazarin. History buffs wont want to miss spending a few hours at 21st Amendment at La Loui-siane. La Louisiane Restaurant opened in 1881 and was later operated at the hands of a couple of notorious New Orleans gangsters. Save room though, because the worlds best shrimp and grits is just around the corner. When you want to taste the true nature of something, go to the source. Every other shrimp and grits dish youll ever have is a prologue to the dish at this NoLa staple, Mr. Bs Bistro. Wood, glass and brass define the dcor at the classic eatery, which is home to a mean Bloody Mary. But its the shrimp and grits that makes people go berserk here and its only available during Sun-day brunch. While other establishments have embraced the spirit of the city and married it with modern technique and creative inspiration, Mr. Bs Bistro is Old South plantation-style eating courtesy of longtime Executive Chef Michelle McRaney. Mr. Bs Bistro is New Orleans formal, which isnt the same as everyone elses formal. The formality is on them, not us, so its OK to show up ready to trek around the city. Nighttime in New Orleans just feels like history. And theres no better way to dine in these hallowed regions than in the Garden District. Many New Orleans chefs have married Creole and architecture to produce dreamy backdrops for innovative culinary pursuits. The best example of this is Coquette, the brainchild of Maryland native and Chef/ owner Michael Stoltzfus. Chef Stoltzfus has created what he calls a culinary playground, where Italianate, Greek Revival and Victorian hous-es and massive gardens cast a spell on diners coming and going through Coquette s doors. Items like red snapper crudo with hibiscus, basil, mango melon and his Gulf seafood stew in a charred onion broth with scallion and turnips have helped earned him high accolades, including a James Beard Nomination in 2013. Noshing within the walls of the two-story Magazine Street masterpiece adds to the experience. Since its con-struction in the 1880s, the building has served as grocery and auto parts stores. Dark and sultry, sensual and spicy, New Orleans has atmosphere to spare. But one New Orleans gem turns the tables and lightens everything up. Pche Seafood Grill is an infusion of rustic vibrancy in New Orleans restaurant architecture. In a sea of dimly lit spac-es, Pche is both refreshing and mod-ern while maintaining the soul of New Orleans dining. Chef / Partner Ryan Prewitt (a James Beard Best Chef: South winner) is some-one who so loves precious ingredients that it shows in every bite. Like a painter starting with a fresh canvas every time, he leaves no stone unturned in the hall of flavors. Whole fish, catfish with pick-led greens and chili broth, steak tartare with oyster aioli and Louisiana shrimp rolls are among popular items. The dcor enhances the appetite, with soaring wood beams, sunflower accented farm table for expediting and an open kitchen to entice and excite. Then there is the added element of watching Chef Prewitt and his team so lovingly tend to dishes theyve so thoughtfully created for no other reason than to delight you.

14 LUXE LIVING JANUARY 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLYDESIGNER Q&AFor Joseph Pubillones, design is a way of life, a blueprint for living, not just a job. Perhaps thats why the designer with a name that for some is at first hard to pronounce (say, pooh-bee-yo-ness) is also the design-er everyone remembers. Mr. Pubillones, who has owned his office in Palm Beach for many years, brings a lifetime of memories and study from places like Paris, Rome, Florence and Montreal to his arse-nal of skills. Hes also known for working on celebrity homes, including of the sport-ing variety. His white glove service extends to challenging proj-ects. With Mr. Pubil-lones at the helm, be it residential interior design, commercial, or collaborating with architects on yacht interiors, anything is possible. Perhaps thats why he was featured on HGTVs Designer Challenge and featured in the Bob Vila show. In sharing his thoughts with Florida Weekly, he gives us a peek into his design philosophy. Your clientele is as diverse as the projects themselves. How have you come to work on so many different kinds of projects? I think of every project like an extremely fine couture gown, individu-ally designed for each client so no two projects look alike. After being in business for 15 years, most of my work is referrals by word of mouth. Clients are usually repeat clients. I also work out of town for clients in South Florida who have homes elsewhere and that includes Canada, Lon-don, Spain and even the Caribbean, Puerto Rico and Jamaica. If you could expand, where would you most like to work more? The majority of my work is high-end residential and many are either second or third homes, but Id love to do more work in New York and California. Whats your favorite home design trend right now? That would be kitchens that are almost sculptural in nature. Recently I attended a few shows in Italy and the designs of kitchens are getting more compact, like working machines that fit in the middle of the room, expanding as you need more. They may look like just an island in the room with components that open up to reveal sink, st ove, ov ens, wine coolers concealed behind doors. Probably by next year it will be catching on more in the States and people will revisit the attitude about kitchen design. This clean look is great for loft apartments and helps you maximize every inch of square footage into your living space. Certain trends have gone out of style. Which are you glad to see go? Here in Florida Im glad to see people adopt a softer approach to tropical dcor. Not everything requires a monkey or grass skirt or wicker. There are other ways to achieve a relaxed and laid back look with-out having to knock you over the head with a coconut. For a time, you would go to any condo and youd see that, but there are other styles that are adequate for inte-riors and a tropical climate without having clich dcor. Do you recommend clients read architecture/design build books or magazines? If so, which ones? I always ask clients to produce a look book filled with pages torn from newspa-pers and magazines, even if they are not sure what they are selecting. Good design-ers are able to discern from pictures the type of color palate or themes the client likes. I live surrounded by magazines and have probably 15 or 20 different subscrip-tions from national and international magazines. It is a great way to keep cur-rent on a more global view of the design profession. What was the most difficult project or home youve ever done? Why? I have a current project I have been working on for four years. One condo became two when the owners purchased the condo next to the one they already owned. We began anew, starting all over to accommodate technology. In this project, for example, air conditioning units can be split to run when balcony doors are open, and there is low voltage corridor light-ing that senses you so you never have to walk down a dark hallway and technology like that. This is the most high-tech, most green project Ive ever done, including recycled materials, and we are going for a LEED rating on this unit. Now we are beginning to design custom pieces of fur-niture. Please share any advice you have for a homeowner embarking on new home construction, or any resources. Do your research. Interview two or three designers and make sure your per-sonalities are compatible and you are on the same page in terms of what the scope of work on the project. It will make the process fun and easy if it happens. Whats the most over the top, luxury space you ever saw or developed? I have a project here in Florida that included an indoor pool for a professional swimmer. Its someone who did not want to be bothered with whether it is sunny or not, too hot or too cold. Another cli-ent turned his whole living room into a workout gym because his whole life revolves around fitness. We had to do a little creative mix of lounging and exercise equipment. „ Kelly Merritt Joseph Pubillones 44 Cocoanut Row Palm Beach 655-1717 JOSEPH PUBILLONESPalm Beach Design InspirationABOVE: The marriage of art, design, and com-fort come together in this great room.
