A2 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 14-20, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARY The fire next time It is a relief to find cause for celebration this early in 2016. A cloud of unease followed us into the New Year, stoked by the rhetoric of fear, anger and bigotry that has weaponized the politics of the 2016 presidential campaign. Courageous voices of right and reason are their anti-dote. Visionary leaders of sound intellect, acting in good faith and goodwill, in pur-suit of justice are proven to be, time and again, on the right side of history. Thus it is the civil rights legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is honored annually with a national celebration and federal holiday. Thousands of hours of community service are contributed in his memory on the third Monday in January. King paid the ultimate price for his passion for justice. He died in 1968, a victim of an assassins bullet, shot while standing and surveying the evening air on a balcony outside his second floor hotel room. Almost two decades passed before the legislation proposing the holiday was approved by Congress. The bills success followed an intensive lobbying effort by a national coalition supported by hundreds of thousands of people and thousands of organizations nationwide. Federal law-makers passed the legislation with bipartisan support and the bill was signed by President Ronald Reagan in November 1983. Nowadays, it would be hard to imagine the bills success, so poisonous is the political climate in Washington and the aversion to compromise that has become an article of faith among the ideologues dominant in Congress. The right-wing zealots would accuse even President Reagan of betraying trueŽ conservative values, and tar the federal governments support of the holiday an intrusion on states rights. As it was, it took until the year 2000 before all 50 states also designated the federal holiday as a state holiday, South Carolina being the last holdout. In fact, several states found it a bridge-too-far to officially sanction the day to honor King. Instead, they created a multiple choice, holiday mash-up. Residents can exercise their preferences among several state options as reasons to celebrate. The alternatives include Robert E. Lees birthday, various dates of historical significance to the Confederacy or civil or human rights in general „ the homog-enization or neutralityŽ offered in the same spirit as the kindred clueless who transpose Black Lives MatterŽ into All Lives Matter,Ž thereby missing the point entirely. On the 100th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, at the time King and civil rights activists were building the movement to challenge the racial status quo of segregation and inequality, James Baldwin published his bestseller, Fire the Next Time.Ž It is an explosive revelation about the black experience in America. Baldwin wrote about grow-ing up in Harlem, describing in power-ful, emotional detail the de-humanizing effect of racism on his life and its horrific consequences for all African-Americans. The book is structured as a letter to Baldwins 15-year-old nephew. He coun-sels his young nephew about how to make it in the world he has been born into, a white world that unequivocally despises black people. Writes Baldwin, The brutality with which Negroes are treated in this country simply cannot be overstated, however unwilling white men may be to hear it.Ž He expressed hope his nephew could build a better life but warned of the devastation and growing despair among black Americans if left unchecked by racial justice and equality of opportu-nity. The books title forewarns as much, taken from a slave song recreated from a biblical prophecy: God gave Noah the rainbow sign, No more water, the fire next time!Ž Political pundits today are quick to say the anger, fear and vitriol being spewed so vociferously and with such stunning popularity is unprecedented in American politics but that isnt so. Snakes have always been in democracys Garden of Eden. The malevolent and cynical know how to wield prejudice to mobilize a path to power. They blame, seek a target, and name the otherŽ that is to be feared and despised. They stir the discontent that smolders, burning embers in wait of a caustic breath, and then provoke the heat into flame. The flame grows in magnitude. It becomes a firestorm of hateful-filled attitudes and behaviors that threatens to reduce everything in its path to ash. We like to think we are mostly better than that, and then we get surprised by our own susceptibility to craven thoughts. A demagogue says bad is good and we believe them, if only to justify our premeditation of and desire to sin. Racial, ethnic and cultural identity is becoming, in the words of The New York Times journalist Eduardo Porter, a main driver of political choice in American politics.Ž It is a dangerous road we take that divides the nation against itself. Said Kings widow of her husbands legacy, As a nation chooses its heroes and heroines, a nation interprets its his-tory and shapes its destiny.Ž I am left wondering: Will the choices Americans make in 2016 be the fire next time?

Saying that the refuge, estab-lished in 1908 by Theodore Roosevelt, is in the middle of nowhere makes it sound too centrally located. It is in southeastern Oregon, about 30 miles from the nearest town of Burns, population 2,722. Now the Bundy family „ notorious for its standoff with the feds at the familys Nevada ranch last year „ and sundry anti-government protesters have occu-pied the refuge and pronounced it the staging ground for an offensive against an oppressive federal government. Ammon Bundy vows to stay in the wildlife preserve for years.Ž What brought the Bundys to Oregon is the case of the Hammonds, ranchers who were subjected to what appears to be a vindictive and unnecessary federal pros-ecution. The case deserves attention and protest, but the Bundys and their allies have brought discredit to the cause with their unlawful occupation of Malheur. Dwight and Steven Hammond of Harney County were convicted a couple of years ago for lighting two fires on their ranch (for entirely innocent reasons, they maintained) that spread onto federal property, causing negligible damage. The second fire burned all of an acre of pub-lic land. For this, they were, amazingly enough, prosecuted under an anti-terror-ism statue and sent to jail. They served brief sentences that were less than whats required under the mandatory minimum because the trial judge thought five years for each of them would be wildly dispro-portionate. Nonetheless, the government appealed the sentences, and now the Hammonds „ the father, Dwight, is 73, and his son, Steven, 46 „ will serve roughly another four years in prison each. The Oregon Farm Bureau, not hitherto known for its terroristic sympathies, has taken up their case. The prosecution of the Hammonds comes against the backdrop of federal highhandedness and hostility to private economic activity allegedly in the area around the Malheur refuge specifically and certainly in the West generally. A protest in favor of the family over the weekend drew hundreds, who peace-ably assembled, made their point and dispersed. The Bundys then split off to take over the (unstaffed) headquarters at the wildlife refuge. The Hammonds say the occupiers dont speak for them, and efforts to recruit the locals to join the takeover have been notably unsuccessful. More sinister is the talk from Ryan Bundy, another of the familys broth-ers, of potentially resisting by force if law enforcement tries to remove them. One hopes that this is self-dramatizing bluster, which is an occupational hazard of the kind of people who establish revo-lutionary enclaves. Last year, the Bundy ranch protesters were riven by rumors of imminent government drone attacks „ having evidently mistaken southeastern Nevada for the badlands of Yemen. The federal governments overweening policies in the West, and the related injustice apparently done to the Ham-monds, are serious matters. The proper remedy in a free society of laws is, as always, to be found in peaceful agitation and persuasion, and ultimately the ballot box. Play-acting a revolution will only bring derision „ and should anyone take it too seriously, much worse. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINION rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly Letters to Bill Murray (from the Ted Cruz diaries)Dear Bill,I know Ive said this before, but I think we have a lot in common. Have you noticed how much I look like you, Bill? Im good at jokes, too. I say funny things in front of people all the time. But they dont laugh. What am I going to do to make them laugh? Please help, Teddy Cruz Dear Teddy,Who are you again? Oh wait, yeah. Youre that wannabe comedian from Texas. What funny things? Dont give up your day job just yet. Bill Dear Bill,Like it or not, youre my role model. And, ah, Id like you to take a paternity test, I think you might be my old man, too. But never mind that now. Im having a crisis of confidence. I cant make them laugh. I need your help. Yours literally and figuratively, Ted Dear Ted,I repeat: What funny things? I am not your father „ that is not funny, Ted, thats just, well, man, stupid. I am not your broth-er, either. I am probably not even a member of the same species as you. Funny. You mean like that time you said, Ive spent the last month in Washington, D.C., and its terrific to be back in Amer-ica?Ž Look, Ted, theres this thing called geography. Or that time you said, When my father came over here penniless with $100 sewn into his underwearƒ?Ž Thats not funny, either, Ted, its just bad math. They dont teach geography or math at Princeton? And then you added, ƒthank God some well-meaning liberal didnt put his arm around him and say, Let me take care of you.Ž Teddy, look. I know you dont like gay marriage or co-habitation between unmar-ried men and women or liberals who have sex, even though my species „ we call ourselves human beings, by the way „ has been doing it for four million years. OK, fine. But if youre going to make jokes about liberal homosexual sugar daddies who put their arms around men with money in their underwear, like your father, and turn them into gays so they could never father the likes of you, thats not how you do it. And let me just repeat: I AM NOT YOUR FATHER. I dont keep money in my underwear. Never have. Underwear is for keeping other things. Usually jewels. Not money. I use a bank for that. Love you, stay in Texas, permanently, Bill Dear Bill,Aw, lighten up, daddy-o. How about that time when Obummer started talking about raising minimum wage? And I said, I think the minimum wage consistently hurts the most vulner-able?Ž You know that was funny, Bill. Or that time when Pope Francis said we should abolish the death penalty and I pulled that great joke out of my hat? Im standing there looking pitiful, like you, and Im keeping a straight face and arching my brows like a homeless little dog, the way you do, and Im looking the camera right in the eye, and I say, I believe the death penalty is a recognition of the pre-ciousness of human life!?Ž It was genius, Bill, genius! The death penalty is a recognition of the preciousness of human lifeƒ.Ž Man, that was good. But they thought I was serious. What am I going to do, papa Bill? Yours in the family way (your family way),Ted Ted,Youre right, that was funny. Real funny. F-U-N-N-Y funny. Go away, Teddy. Forever. Bill P.S. Remember that thing you said once, My touchstone for every question is the Constitution?Ž No, Teddy. Just, No. What happens when your wife asks you what you want to do tonight? Gotta touch the Constitution, baby.Ž Or she asks what you want to eat? The Constitution, sweet cheeks.Ž Are you a freak, Ted? Or maybe youre just sentimental, a dreamscaper. Heres what I told Rolling StoneŽ about that: Sentimentality to me is a symbol that weve left the planet. OK, bye-bye. Let me know when you come back because youre no longer here. You left. It reminds me of being at a funeral, like my dad dies and the grief is just overpowering. And all any-one can say to you is, Well, hes probably up there in heaven, bowling with Uncle George. Its like, Yeah, thats probably it. Hes up there bowling with Uncle George. Hes dead. Hes gone. What am I going to do? Talk to ME. Dont make up your own dreamscape. Stay here with me, will you? Dont go away.Ž Thats how to be funny, Teddy. Or real.

I think most of us commit to some version of that resolution every year: to exercise more, take up a new activity, eat right. Include your pet in that fitness resolution, and youll improve his health, performance and longevity, says veterinary sports medicine specialist Cindy Otto, DVM. My cavalier Harper and I started a little early with this resolution when we attended a working dog fitness class last November, led by Dr. Otto. The exercises we learned are often taught to working dogs and canine athletes to help them stay agile and teach them body awareness, but any pet can benefit. I think pet dogs benefit even more because often theyre bored to tears, theyre fat and they dont have anything to mentally stimulate them,Ž Dr. Otto says. I think the whole process, especially train-ing and working with your dog, changes your relationship.Ž A pet workout isnt that different from one you might do for yourself. It includes a warmup, stretching, balance exercises for core power, strength training and a cool down. You can take a fitness class with your dog or learn some simple strat-egies to work with him on your own, using equipment you may already have or can build easily. A warmup is as simple as walking your dog around for a few minutes to get the blood flowing (especially if he has been crated for any length of time), some active stretches such as downward dog (a play bow) and a counter stretch such as frog dogŽ for groin muscles. A trick such as waveŽ or high fiveŽ is a good stretch for limbs and shoulders. Complete the warmup with some sits and downs and a rubdown to get the blood flowing. Balance exercises to build a strong core (think pupilatesŽ) include sitting up on the hind legs; walking a plank „ a board placed atop two balance discs so its a little wobbly when the pet crosses it; or standing on single or multiple balance discs. Core exercises can also be as simple as having your pet stand or walk on a sofa cushion or inflatable bed. Dogs need core strength to keep their spine and pelvis healthy and happy,Ž Dr. Otto says. A lot of dogs end up losing their lives because of hind end weakness. Bad hips and bad backs are big causes of euthanasia.Ž Balance work doesnt take long. Spend three to five minutes daily practicing these exercises with your pet. If your dog has a long back or doesnt have good control, be cautious and go sl owly with difficult exercises such as sit pretty.Ž Another important aspect of fitness is whats known as proprioception, or body awareness. Learning to back up, fitting all four feet in a box and spinning in both directions are all skills that can help to build this ability. Exercises for building strength and proprioception include walking up hills or walking sideways up hills. Backing up a hill strengthens the rear end while backing down a hill strengthens the front end. Other good strength exercises are pushupsŽ „ repeated sits and downs „ rolling over in both directions, crawling and trotting through the rungs of a ladder on the ground. Fit dogs have muscle tone,Ž Dr. Otto says. Just being thin isnt enough.Ž To find a class, do a web search for fitness class for pets.Ž You can find classes for puppies, seniors and people and pets of all fitness levels. Q Dogs and cats can benefit from “core” and strength training.

WE ACCEPT MOST INSURANCE PLANS School programs, office operations phased out by Marshall Foundation SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY The board of directors at the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation for the Everglades recently announced that the foundation will phase out its environmental educa-tion programing in Palm Beach County schools to focus on its two key programs: the Student Intern Program (SIP) and Sea Level Rise Symposium. It will also create a platform to continue the support of environmental educa-tion with other environmental partners. In the next few months, environmental educators at the foundation will work with teachers in the school system to provide them with the curriculum need-ed to continue environmental education, the foundation said in a prepared state-ment. The curriculum will also be available to educators online through the founda-tions website. The physical offices of the foundation are expected to close in late spring. The foundation will now concentrate its funding and attention to partner with organizations to continue the legacy of Arthur R. Marshall, namesake of the National Wildlife Refuge in western Palm Beach County, and to acknowledge John A. Marshall, Arthurs nephew and founder of the Arthur R. Marshall Foun-dation. Over the years, the Arthur R. Marshall for The Everglades Foundation has awarded more than $450,000 in scholar-ships and internships, planted nearly 100,000 native Florida trees in wetland areas, educated more than 25,000 elementary and high school students and involved more than 5,000 volunteers in hands-on restoration projects. We are proud of this legacy and know that the work of preserving and restoring the Everglades is more important today, than ever before,Ž said Nancy Marshall, president. However, it is time to let oth-ers take the lead in environmental edu-cation and continue the good work of the Arthur R. Marshall Foundation for the Everglades and to preserve its legacy.Ž For further information about the Marshall Foundation call 233-9004 or see Q COURTESY PHOTO Nancy Marshall and John Marshall Sell your valuables with con“ dence to a trusted name for over 100 years.

If everyone learned to live in the moment, regret might no longer exist. If everyone main-tained a sense of awareness about lifes little things, hearts might overflow with joy. None of the above comes easy in todays fast-paced, high-tech, overload-ed-with-work environment. Who has time to meditate? Why is it so difficult to put aside those mobile devices? How many extra hours does one have to log at the office in order to take a day off? Mi Sun Donahue wants to help. The author, lecturer and yoga teacher start-ed the New Year with a new class at the North Palm Beach Library aimed at decreasing stress and increasing mind-fulness. It is offered from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on Mondays. We are living in an interesting time where everything is so rushed,Ž Ms. Donahue said from her living-room sofa, paging through one of the self-help books piled atop her coffee table. I want to teach people the steps of why we need to think consciously and live consciously.Ž The philosophy formed the basis for her second book, due later this year, titled Conscious Thinking, Conscious Living.Ž She has delivered speeches on the topic since publishing her first book, The Journey of a Motherless Child,Ž in 2012. I think most of the time we react to life and spend the rest of our days cleaning up the mess,Ž the 64-year-old Korean immigrant said. If you dont live in the moment, you miss out on mil-lions and millions of things the moment presents.Ž Ms. Donahue came to the United States as a pregnant teenager and, while still scarred by the loss of her mother as a toddler, managed to raise three children and run a successful business selling inspirational poems. While she pursued her childhood dream of becom-ing a writer, everything else happened organically. I have found that everyones life is difficult at one time or another,Ž Ms. Donahue notes at the beginning of her 140-page memoir. My life is no excep-tion. In spite of the difficulties I have encountered in my life, I know that there have been many more good days than bad days.Ž She wants to spend 2016 leading others down the path to positivity. Its a learning lesson, not getting fixed on ideas,Ž said the longtime New England resident, admitting she never pictured herself living in South Florida. From the smallest of places come the biggest of decisions „ just unexpected things in life.Ž Ms. Donahue has lived in North Palm Beach for 12 years with her husband Michael, a boat captain. They own a waterfront condominium, the balcony of which frames the sunset. Art covers the walls, novels crowd the bookshelf, and peace fills the air. I believe there is no accident in life,Ž she said. I have been led to everything and everywhere. Nothing is permanent. Everything is temporary. And the next minute is not promised. Who would ever think that you dont have tomorrow?Ž The certified Tong Ren practitioner will try to demystify energy therapy, holistic healing and meditation dur-ing a special talk at the library on Jan. 21. Her presentation will target all age groups, with a special focus on youths and seniors. Youths need to learn how to deal with life and have the tools to handle the emotional issues they face,Ž said Ms. Donahue, who has plans to open a private studio in Lake Park and make it accessible to underserved populations. Seniors need to know how standing up straight, stretching, walking affects their health.Ž The overall message will promote physical and spiritual wellness while encouraging individuals to conduct daily examinations of events that unfold in their lives. People have a tendency to think that when bad things happen to them some-thing is conspiring against them,Ž Ms. Donahue said. People want to strangle me when I say this, but I think life is fair.Ž Mi Sun is really good at helping people deal with loss and putting it into perspective,Ž Mr. Donahue said admir-ingly. She is very talented woman.Ž Her talent in putting things into perspective comes through in a poem titled Mothers Gift.Ž I have loved you from the moment I felt you within me. I knew you were part of me.Yet you do not belong to me.I will love you for ever and ever.You are the very best treasure I shall find in this world.Ž Q ‘People have a tendency to think that when bad things happen to them something is conspiring against them. People want to strangle me when I say this, but I think life is fair.’— Mi Sun Donahue COURTESY PHOTOMi Sun Donahue offers a yoga class at the North Palm Beach Library.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 14-20, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY we had tons of people asking to come in advance.Ž The preview begins Friday, Jan. 15, at the auction house in Palm Beach. The live auction starts at noon Saturday, Jan. 23. Among the 153 items going up for bid is the Louis XV-style mahogany banquet table where the clan shared family meals; a pair of twin beds shared between John F. Kennedy and his broth-er Joe Jr., who was eventually supplant-ed from the presidents bedside by Jac-queline Kennedy; a walnut Savonarola chair Roses father, John Francis Honey FitzŽ Fitzgerald, claimed during visits to his daughters family; a pair of uphol-stered armchairs where President-elect John F. Kennedy conducted interviews for his Cabinet; the iconic photograph of John and his family on their way to Easter Mass in Palm Beach; and many, many more tables, chairs, mirrors and decorative items the family used during its most prominent years on the Ameri-can political stage. Kennedys aside, items with Mr. Mizners touch have their own merit thanks to the designers clout as the most prominent resort architect of the 1920s, particularly in South Florida. He designed and furnished what would become the Winter White House in 1923 for department store magnate Rodman Wanamaker III. Kennedy patriarch Joseph Sr. and his wife, Rose, acquired the house for their permanent residence a decade later for $120,000 „ with many of the original Mizner furnishings „ and retained ownership until 1995, when the family trust sold the property and its contents to John K. and Marianne Castle for about $5 million. (The property changed hands again in May 2015, when the Castles sold it for $31 million to Palm Beach socialite Jane Goldman. The couple retained owner-ship of homes contents, however.) When the Kennedy family bought the home from the Wanamakers, much of its original furnishings were in place,Ž said Corbin Horn, furniture and deco-rative art specialist at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers. While the Wanamakers had largely conformed to correct peri-od taste to go with the Mediterranean revival style that was so fashionable at the time the home was built, he added, the Kennedys incorporated comfortable furniture in both traditional and modern tastes. The home was a retreat for the entire Kennedy clan where various members could recuperate, restore and play their famous touch-football games beachside. When John F. Kennedy Jr. was elected president, the home became a sort of off-site Oval Office and was renovated to improve security. It was here „ and using much of the items that are now up for auction „ that Mr. Kennedy exe-cuted many of his presidential duties, such as selecting his Cabinet, writing his inaugural address, conducting press conferences and hosting heads of state. The Kennedys Palm Beach home was where JFK left for war and it was where he recuperated from his wartime ordeals,Ž wrote William Doyle, author of PT 109: An American Epic of War, Survival, and the Destiny of John F. Ken-nedy,Ž in an e-mail last week. As presi-dent, and until the end of his life, (he) often came to these rooms and loggias to enjoy family and spiritual life, and to relax and gain strength as he grappled with titanic issues we still struggle with today: race relations, nuclear dangers, space travel, tensions with Russia, poverty and injustice.ŽWhat will it bring?Values in the catalog for the upcoming auction top out at around $5,000-$6,000, with the majority of household furni-ture and accessories hovering around the $500-$1,000 mark. Who knows what things will bring,Ž Ms. Hindman said. Theyre all lovely objects and intrinsically nice pieces ƒ (but) the estimates are conservative, as if they didnt belong to the Kennedys,Ž she added. The Los Angeles Times reported in 1996 that Sothebys landmark auction of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis personal effects brought in almost $35 million in four days, more than seven times its original estimate of $4.6 million. A triple-strand of faux pearls belonging to Jacqueline was valued at $700 in the Sothebys catalog but eventually sold for $211,500; a set of President Kennedys golf clubs, which was valued at $700-800, sold for $772,500. Ms. Hindman encourages people who are interested in the upcoming auction to call the Palm Beach auction house to ask questions, request catalogs and condition reports, or to just obtain basic information about how auctions work. A lot of people who are interested in memorabilia dont know how to bidŽ and might be intimidated by auctions, she said. They should know they can call and ask questions. Well answer them.Ž The auction preview begins at 10 a.m. Friday, Jan. 15, at Leslie Hindman Auc-tioneers West Palm Beach location, and will continue at specified times through Friday, Jan. 22. Bids can be placed in a variety of methods at the Jan. 23 auc-tion: by telephone, Internet, by leaving a maximum bid with auctioneers or in person.

We know season is upon us because there is always the increase in traffic and then there is always the homecom-ing of our customers who have been gone for six months. We notice the increase in our daily business and must staff accordingly. What does it represent to you?It represents the fact that after all these years, people still see Palm Beach County as a wonderful place to spend the winter away from the cold and storms.

The other day a customer said to me, A trip to ArtWorks, with a prints and memory stick in hand, is one of my most joyous outings.

As more and more people decide not to leave this wonderful city, we are seeing an increase in our corporate projects. More hotels, condominiums and health care facilities being built means more pic-tures and artwork to fill them. What is the best part of season? We love the excitement of new projects.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 14-20, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY ADVERTISEMENT ASK THE VEIN EXPERT ASK THE VEIN EXPERT Thomas Ashton, Medical Director, MD, FACPHQuestion: What are my options when considering treatment for varicose and spider veins?There are many options for treatment of venous problems. 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. TREATMENT OPTIONS AND VARIATIONS Thomas Ashtonashtonota@aol.com3365 Burns Rd.,Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410561-630-6800ASHTONVEINCENTER.COM Lincoln aims one goal at two of its crossovers This is one of the most interesting gambles in the luxury car game today. Lincoln has redesigned its MKX cross-over to look just like its little brother MKC. In fact, it is difficult to tell the dif-ference between the two cars pictured, and that may be the exact intent. The MKC (seen in white) and MKX (seen in silver) are not the product of a lazy pen that built two alphabet soup cars out of one drawing. Instead, this is an extreme example of how a uniform corporate design language is more of a factor in luxury vehicles than the older staples such as size, speed or flair. Both of these vehicles are aimed at luxury buyers who dont need to seat more than five people and have the right size to attract urban buyers. The base price gap between the MKC and the MKX is only $5,000 ($33,260 and $38,260, respectively.) This creates a situation where Lincoln is betting it can cover more consumer ground as long as they like the styling. For example, if a buyer comes in looking for an MKC, but then decides she wants more interior room, it will be an easy transition to the MKX. Con-versely, if a potential customer cannot afford the payments on a loaded MKX, he might not notice the difference in stepping down to a more reasonable and similar-looking MKC. It gives these two crossovers a cannibalistic attitude within the dealership, but it also means Lincoln has more variety to offer con-sumers within a price class. The interiors are strikingly similar. They both give the driver the same soft leather wrapped steering wheel with radio and infotainment controls attached. This sits in front of a gauge package that utilizes LED screens to offer info on everything from what song is playing to what set of wheels are being powered if its equipped with optional all-wheel drive. These utilize the same touchscreen HD radio system thats logically divided into setting for audio, Bluetooth phone, climate control and navigation all on the same panel. They even have Lincolns new pushbutton gearshift that moves the trans-mission selector to a vertical stack on the dash. Some drivers might miss the performance feeling of the usual gear-stick, but these are not likely Lincolns traditionally laid-back clientele. Both models also get a similar list of options that make these near-twins dis-tinctive compared to rest of the luxury market. This includes features like a panoramic sunroof, pre-collision warn-ing alarm, and an active park assist system that allows either crossover to parallel park itself. This long option list also creates a large price overlap between the two car lines. It forges an interesting unity where a loaded MKC and more basic MKX may both be with-in budget, which likely aids in tailoring a vehicle to a customers needs. Where decisions will often be made is on size needs. The larger MKX is 7.5 inches longer and has 6.3 more inches of wheelbase. This translates into 2.8 inches more rear legroom and 12 more cubic feet of cargo space. Another large distinction between the two Lincolns is in the engine bay. The smaller MKC has a choice of natu-rally aspirated and turbocharged four-cylinder motors. The MKX comes with regular and turbo V6s that offer on aver-age 22 percent more horsepower than its little brothers lineup. Both feel like mature cars on the road, but the lighter MKC feels sprightlier. The MKX has a more authoritative feel from its extra power, which also supports a larger towing capacity. At the end of the day, these cars are too similar not to put them in a head-to-head comparison. The MKX has a bit more grunt on the street and a few more luxurious interior appointments to justify the extra initial cost. But these two vehicles, in total, give Lincoln the ability to cut a wide swath allow-ing young urbanites, upper-middle class families and luxury-minded retirees to dial-in their ideal price and size. Now all Lincoln needs to do is make sure it is betting on the right singular design. Q BEHIND THE WHEEL myles Life is short. Eat dessert. Make sure you LikeŽ the PGA Commons Facebook page!

About half of epilepsy cases occur for no known reason. However, it can be caused by genetic factors, head trauma, certain medical disorders like a stroke, dementia, prenatal injury, and devel-opmental disorders such as autism or Down syndrome. People at increased risk for epilepsy are men, young chil-dren, adults over the age of 65, those with a family history of the disorder, anyone who has had a stroke or brain infection, and those who experienced high fevers during childhood. Fortunately for the Palm Beach community, a new Epilepsy Program was recently implemented at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center that offers diagnostics, brain imaging, neurological and behavior examinations, blood work and electroencephalograms (EEGs). The hospital also has an Epilepsy Moni-toring Unit for patients in need of fur-ther assessment. Within the inpatient unit, long-term video monitoring is used to detect epi-leptic activity not detectable in routine EEGs. It can be critical for the diagnosis of epilepsy by correlating the time of the physician manifestation of the sei-zure with abnormal electrical activity in the brain. There are two main types of seizures with subcategories. Focal or partial sei-zures originate in one part of the brain. Simple focal seizures do not cause loss of consciousness, but may affect senso-ry perceptions and result in involuntary jerking of part of the body. Complex focal seizures change consciousness or awareness and may result in non-pur-poseful movements, such as walking in circles or staring. Generalized seizures appear to involve the whole brain. They include: Q Absence seizures, also called petit mal, which cause subtle body move-ments and brief loss of awareness. Q Tonic seizures that result in muscles stiffening. Q Clonic seizures associated with recurring, twitching muscle contrac-tions. Q Myoclonic seizures that appear as sudden, jerking movements in the arms and legs. Q Atonic seizures that cause loss of normal muscle tone. Q Tonic-clonic seizures, also called grand mal, which are intense episodes of body stiffening, shaking, loss of con-sciousness, and occasional loss of blad-der control or tongue biting. Epilepsy treatment usually begins with medication to reduce the frequen-cy and intensity of seizures. Surgery may be recommended if medicine is not effective. If you or a loved one is experiencing epilepsy symptoms, visit your primary care physician and request a referral to Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center for further evaluation. For more informa-tion on the program, call 514-6637 or see Q HEALTHY LIVING jeff WELCHCEO, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center Former legislator Sharon J.

NEW CLIENTS ONLY MONEY & INVESTING China ushers in a rough start to the yearThe first week of 2016 has not been a pleasant experience for equity or commodity investors, to put it mildly. The first trading day of the year saw the Dow drop 277 points, the next day it rose 10 points, on Wednesday it dove 252 points, on Thursday it plummeted 392 points and on Friday it fell 167 points. So an average index investor has lost over 6 percent of the value of her portfolio in a week. Those investors who have invested heavily in energy, material or international com-panies have witnessed their portfolios drop in double-digit percentages. The crazy thing about this is that it has occurred in a week where another stel-lar jobs report came out announcing that the U.S. economy created another 292,000 jobs last month, bringing the total number of jobs created in 2015 to 2.7 million. So why the dismal start to 2016 and what can we expect in the weeks ahead? The reason behind the sour mood on Wall Street can be summed up in one word: China. More specifically, two events recently transpired that have spooked the market. First, the govern-ment has allowed the Chinese curren-cy, the yuan, to depreciate significantly against the dollar and other global currencies. In fact, China has spent bil-lions of dollars of its foreign reserves to make sure the depreciation happened. This was unexpected, as China had pre-viously been strengthening its curren-cy for years in order to show that the yuan could be a true reserve currency and to increase consumer consump-tion within the country. Many analysts have speculated that the government initiated this new policy because the Chinese economy is much weaker than people believe. China would then need a weaker currency to spur its manufac-turing and export driven economy by making its goods cheaper for overseas buyers. This is not good for U.S. manu-facturers who will have to compete again for even less expensive Chinese goods. And it is not good for U.S. mul-tinational corporations like Apple who look to sell to Chinese consumers as the yuan has less purchasing power, making their goods more costly. The second incident in China recently was the complete meltdown of the Chinese stock market, which turned out to be a result of a mostly a self-inflicted wound. In 2015, the Chinese stock market was one of the most volatile in the world. To combat this volatility, the government initiated cir-cuit breakersŽ at the start of this year to decrease these wild price swings. In simple terms, if the market fell by more than 7 percent, these circuit breakersŽ would kick in and actually stop trad-ing in the market. The thought process was that it would give the market time to catch its breath and when the mar-ket would reopen, cooler heads would prevail. Unfortunately, it did the exact opposite. When the market started to fall, people began to worry that the circuit breakers would stop trading and so they immediately sold their shares so as not to be locked out of the mar-ket and be unable to sell. This selling caused the markets to fall even further and a vicious cycle ensued, which actu-ally caused the circuit breakers to kick in. This happened again and again until the government, four days after install-ing the breakers, removed them and suddenly the markets stabilized. So should these two market events in China have caused so much dam-age to our stocks here in the U.S.? For companies like steel producers and oil explorers or Macau casino operators, a recession in China would be disastrous. There is already too much oil and steel in the global market and too few Chi-nese high-rollers at the Baccarat tables. But for the rest of the U.S. economy, there should be a much lesser impact. Airlines, service companies that focus on domestic clients, restaurants, and companies like Walmart should all ben-efit from lower oil and commodity prices, low inflation and cheaper Chi-nese goods. So in a few months, we may all be kicking ourselves for not buying more high quality equities dur-ing this dip. But right now it is pretty scary. Happy new year indeed.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE A19 SECTION WEEK OF JANUARY 14-20, 2016 Talk to the experts in Palm Beach or Naples or Fort Myers or even Punta Gorda, and you get variations on a theme. The theme is this: Home prices will continue to rise in 2016, wherever you are. Its a sellers market now, but in Florida a market for rational sellers, not proud sell-ers „ for people who will do best by not expecting to get more than the market bears, says Denny Grimes, owner of Denny Grimes & Co, a south-west coast firm. Every property sells now if its priced right, but I see some bubbles forming (in the region) with higher inventory „ one problematic area in Collier County is near the heart of Naples, with a lot of tear-downs and people rebuilding.Ž Its problematic because some people are using dartboard logic,Ž he explains, a fact that could affect markets almost everywhere. One seller put a home on the market for $2.7 million for a year. He had an offer at $2.6, turned it down, and went shop-ping for a new agent. Now he wants $3.4,Ž Mr. Grimes says. Thats called dartboard logic.Ž Thats also human nature, observes Randy Thibault, president of Land Solu-tions, a company devoted to land devel-opment, new housing and new sales in Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties. Sellers who saw their property values tank five years ago might look at current conditions and assume that the market is booming says Mr. Thibault. That per-ception might make them too optimistic and they might want more now than the market can bear. My advice for sellers now is that 2016 is probably the right time to sell. Were at a place in the market where things have kind of peaked for a while. For buyers, if they plan on getting in the market „ and some may have got-ten in a little late „ now is the time. Because, fact: interest rates are going up. Fact: prices of new homes have gone up 50 percent in the last year in some cases because of materials, labor and optimism.Ž Sometimes too much optimism.Realtors have a joke they tell about dartboard logic, Mr. Grimes says. Ques-tion: How do you know a seller signifi-cantly overpriced their home? Answer: The neighbors agree with the asking price.ŽNuancesIn each market there are nuances „ factors that suggest national figures for home prices are constructs, not literal representations of markets here.Lee and Collier counties Mr. Grimes comparative analysis of Lee and Collier suggest some signifi-cant nuances, and differences, in those markets. Lee County sales were up 11 percent last year, he ways, while Naples-area sales were up about 3 percent, in part because of price points: Collier has a median sales price of $405,000, which is almost double Lees $211,000 median. The irony is that some buyers who hear about the Naples-Fort Myers area and how nice Naples is fly into the Lee County airport, drive to Naples, then bounce back to Lee to buy a home when they see the prices,Ž he says. In luxury sales, Collier has had a 54 percent increase in sales, while Lees is up 30 percent, Mr. Grimes says. That showed in figures produces at Premier Sothebys International Realty of Naples.

LAURA GIAMBONA LANDMARK SPECIALIST561.352.5214 Boca Executive Realty www.bocaexecutive.comLANDMARK AT THE GARDENS The Perfect Location, The Lifestyle you deserve...Ž All indicators point to sales values steadily increasing across all of our mar-kets,Ž says Judy Green, president and CEO at Premier Sothebys. Well maintain our focus on extraordi-nary customer ser-vice leveraged by high quality listings, while looking for ways to even further use tech-nology to advance our services.Ž At Sothebys, she reports, the average sales price increased 8 percent to about $1.1 million in 2015, and the volume of sales jumped to more than $4 billion, up from $3.4 billion in 2014, in part a result of the companys 20 percent increase in locations, to 34 in Florida and North Carolina. Another key nuance in Lee County and some other areas, meanwhile, may be inventory „ in November, inventory was down to 4.4 months, says Jason Jakus, president of the Real-tors Association of Greater Fort Myers and the Beaches, and owner of NextHome Advisors. A balanced market would be five to seven months of inventory,Ž he explains, and once you get below 5 per-cent, experts say youre in a sellers market.Ž The average days-on-market of homes in the region was 44 three years ago, which dropped to 34 and is now running about 30, so buyers probably need to be decisive when they see something they like, he advises. There are more financing deals than before, too, Mr. Jakus explains „ three out of five purchases, which means the homes have to be appraised before the bank provides money, deflecting some dartboard pricing. And the sweet spot for buyers in the region now ranges between $250,00 and $500,000. Three years ago, says Denny Grimes, the median price in Lee was only $128,000, which means half the homes were more expensively valued and half were less. In 2015, the median was $211,000, or 65 per-cent higher. So we crossed the $200,000 barrier this year.Ž All of which may suggest that home prices in the region will rise more quick-ly in 2016 than the national average sug-gests, just as they have been. That would happen in part because of a Lee County bubbleŽ „ a huge rise in home prices „ shortly before the recession hit that was among the highest in the country. It resulted in a terrible downside four or five years later: a foreclosure rate before 2010 that ranked the highest in the United States, and dropped prices so much that the return to steady growth and profits has required more dramatic jumps, say the experts. Where we were at the peak of the boom (almost a decade ago) was $329,000,Ž recalls Mr. Grimes. So when you talk about the nation, median sales prices have surpassed the peak market of 2005 or 2006. Our values have not, how-ever, and we dont want them to. Ours is a rational market now, recovering from artificially high numbers to artificially low. Id love to see it grow six or seven or eight percent this coming year, but not more than that.ŽCharlotte CountyAlthough Sunshine State numbers are higher than that, about 8 percent, says Tom Weekes, a Realtor and analyst with his wife, Gay Weekes, at Keller Wil-liams Peace River Partners, Charlotte County prices are most likely to reflect the national trend. Our numbers have been pretty consistent for several years,Ž he explains, with sales running from a low of just over 2,000 in 2008 to a high of 4,500 this year, and „ as a retirement marketŽ „ an influx of baby boomers 62 or older expected to continue through 2023. Mr. Weekes expects prices to continue to go up at just over the national rate. But Charlotte County may be the only market without more significant nuances.Palm Beach In the town of Palm Beach, at the heart of Palm Beach County, national data might as well exist on another planet. The town of Palm Beach operates on its own heartbeat,Ž explains Jeff Clon-inger, senior broker associate at Sothe-bys International. The median sales price in 2014, at $3.475 million, was up 20 percent to $4.2 million for 2015,Ž he says. And in Palm Beach County as a whole there were 12 and 14 percent increases in 2013 and 2014. The county appraisers office was estimating a similar increase by the end of 2015 though those numbers arent tallied yet.Ž Part of what happened in the luxury homes market sev-eral years ago was confusion and uncer-tainty „ not lack of money, perhaps. There were a lot of frustrated buyers during the bad times,Ž Mr. Cloninger points out, because no one knew which way prices were going. But those buyers who were sitting on their hands then, are out in droves now.Ž Most startling of all, perhaps is that prices in Palm Beach (the town) now exceed those of the Florida boom almost a decade ago, but with one likely difference in the economic climate, he concludes: Prices will rise at a sustainable rate. Not in gen-eral the 25 percent appreciation of 2004 or 2005. Now were seeing more thoughtful, judicious study on the part of buyers.Ž Q MARKETFrom page 19 Randy Thibault, owner of Land Solutions: “The main theme we see in 2016 is this: Perception sometimes is not reality. “There is a perception of many that the market is on re again, that we’ve recovered and we’re in a boom cycle. “That’s partly true, but with a caveat: Be rational. There was so much hope for a market uptick in the last 36 months that when we saw double-digit per annum permit increases for multiand single-family new homes ranging from as high as 20 to almost 60 percent, many decided that we could continue that pace. “Here’s the not-so-good news: That’s what we believed in 2003 to 2004 — that there was no limit. If you believe it will keep going up, that we’ll be back to the levels of 2005 in three or four years, that’s where trouble begins. CLONINGER JAKUS GREEN TOM and GAY WEEKS

Watch out for endangered species discussions and laws. Are we protecting living elephants by making it illegal to sell any ivory, even carvings or teapot handles, made more than 100 years ago? Watch out for stereotypes. Is it trying to change his-tory to delete vocabulary and cartoonish figurines from 100 years ago? Unflattering depictions of suffragettes or Shylock are tolerated, but a Confederate flag, a Chi-nese man with a queue or a black child with an alligator or non-PC word embossed on a bank must be omitted in a for saleŽ ad. And which firearms can be legally sold at antiques auctions without special permits? Is a cannon OK? Recently, a life-size iron figure of a woman wearing a painted late-19th-century car-nival costume was sold at auction. She is a shooting-gallery target, part of the his-tory of a past lifestyle. She sold for more than $43,000, even though she had marks from shots and some repairs. Times have changed „ no shooting gallery would have a human target, but one from the past is an historic artifact. Q: I have two lions from Bennington Vermont ceramics from the year 1849. I'd like to sell them. One of them was damaged, but I can get it fixed and restored. Is it worth it? A: A lot of fake Bennington has been made. The lions should be seen by an expert to determine if they are the origi-nal old Bennington or more recent repro-ductions. Contact a good auction house or antiques shop. Prices for Bennington have dropped in the past five years. It might pay to fix the damaged lion so you can sell them as a pair. A pair is worth more than two singles. Q: I found a Speedball Linoleum Cutter made by Hunt Manufacturing Co. It's in its original box. The blades are in their own little box. It says there are supposed to be five blades, but there are nine. What can you tell me about it, and how much is it worth? A: The company began when C. Howard Hunt started a pen manufacturing company in Camden, New Jersey, in 1899. The company became well-known when it introduced the Speedball nib, which made lettering faster, in 1913. It began making linoleum c utters and other accessories for block printing in 1936. The company name was changed to Hunt Manufacturing Co. in 1962. It was restructured in 1997 and now makes linoleum cut-ters and other art products under the name Speedball in Statesville, N.C. New and used linoleum c utters sell online for under $10. Tip: A drawer that is stuck can be helped by heat. Remove any nearby drawers, then aim a blow dryer set on medium at the wood. Once the drawer is opened, rub the runners with paraffin or a candle.

BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@” Among American writers, few had as much drama in their lives as Edgar Allan Poe. So its fitting that there should be a play about him. Hes crazy but we love him,Ž said Kermit Christman, founder and director of the Palm Beach Shakespeare Festival. Edgar,Ž originally conceived by Mr. Christman and presented at the 1994 Palm Beach County Bookfest, will be produced Jan. 15-16 at the Veterans Plaza outdoor amphitheater by the Shake-speare Festival in a cultural partnership with the city of Palm Beach Gardens. The free performances, sponsored by the BallenIsles Charities Foundation Inc., serve as a prelude to paid perfor-mances Feb. 12-14 at Palm Beach State Colleges Eissey Campus Theatre. When I was very young and enjoying learning literature, I found two writers who appealed to me. One was William Shakespeare. The other was Edgar Allan Poe,Ž Mr. Christman said.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 14-20, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS Finding our person When I first joined eHarmony, I was surprised at the text messages I would receive. If a particular man and I made it through the gantlet of back-and-forth questionnaires to the stage where we exchanged phone numbers, it wasnt long before I started getting a Good morn-ingŽ on my phone at the start of the day and a Good nightŽ at the end. It surprised me, this quick jump to the things you would roll over and say to the person next to you. I found it unnerv-ingly intimate from someone I barely knew. What were those men trying to do? Then I understood. They were trying to make me their person. Their person?Ž you ask.The person we tell about our day. The person we reach out to when we see something funny or interesting. The person we call when were feeling sad or hurt. In order to make it through this rough and turbulent world with our sanities intact, we all need a person. For a long time, I thought relationships were simply about going through the motions. Some nice man takes me out to dinner a few times, maybe the movies, and somewhere along the line intimacy gets built. How, exactly? I wasnt sure. But it didnt seem to be working for me. As much as I might like some of these men, we never made it past the acquaintance level. Then one morning, standing in my kitchen with my phone in my hand, I realized what it was. I was laughing at something my ex-boyfriend had texted, a funny story about his week. I texted back a tidbit about my life, and we discussed that for a while. With an unsettling twist in my gut it occurred to me that he is my person. He has been my person for a long time, as long as I have been writing this column. Even though we havent officially been together for years, hes still the one I reach out to when Im angry or upset or elated. He helped me navigate the years of mourning that followed my husbands death, and he celebrated my books suc-cesses. We broke up because of a com-plicated mix of factors that revolved around distance and circumstance. Every time I try to start a new relationship with someone else, hes always there „ on my mind and on my phone. This Christmas, he was in Florida for two weeks. I hadnt seen him in a year. Ill come visit you,Ž he promised. During his stay, we texted. We talked on the phone. But he never gave me a date when he would come here to see me. Finally, when I pushed him, he said he wasnt going to make it. That was the moment I got it, the thing I have been refusing to see for years: He is my person on the phone, yes, but he will never be my person in real life. And I want someone I can touch, not just someone I just text. If Im going to make space for that person, I know now that I will have to let him go. Someday.

I watched the Poe films, always starring Vincent Price, and strangely enough, I created a Shakespeare festival and Vincent Price became a friend,Ž Mr. Christman said. The tale unfolds through Poes (played by Seth Trucks) encounters with the ManŽ (Darryl Willis). The ManŽ represents the men who influenced Poes life, for better or worse, and the WomanŽ (Natasha Sherritt) embodies the women relevant to his genius. Also, his personal hauntings take the form of the ghost of LenoreŽ (Kelly Ainsworth), who was his poetic ideal of the perfect love. At that point, I was able to say, Now I can be very expressive and explore Edgar Allan Poes life and write the play. So I wrote the play and it went on tour,Ž Mr. Christman said. The show toured throughout South Florida, and there was interest in New York and London. All of a sudden, dreams were coming true because something you enjoyed as a young man was becoming profitable,Ž he said. And now, with the play opening at Veterans Plaza before moving indoors next month to the Eissey Campus The-atre, it feels like a tour all over again. Poe died in 1849 under mysterious circumstances after being found delirious in the streets of Baltimore. He was 40 „ young even in his day „ but achieved an immortality of sorts. Tap someone on the shoulder and say Shakespeare or Edgar Allan Poe and they will know who youre talking about.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 14-20, 2016 B9 The screening committee and I will spend time, like in March, when we start angsting, and by the end, we look at each other and go, Gosh, we have a great assortment and we have diversity and different subject matters,Ž she said. Thats the whole idea behind the festival, presented by Mandel Jewish Com-munity Center of the Palm Beaches. What I like about it is that it is a true cultural event,Ž said Mr. Ephraim, the festivals namesake. I think that people really enjoy the movies. Theres some-thing evergreen about movies.Ž Well, at least theres something green about Dough,Ž the opening night film. Dough,Ž directed by John Goldschmidt and starring Jona-than Pryce, is about a Jewish baker whose business gets a boost when his young Mus-lim apprentice acci-dentally drops cannabis into the dough. People frequently approach Ms. Wedner and Mr. Ephraim to say they never have seen anything like the films screened during the festival. Its so heartwarming to us because you really hope youre bringing some-thing of value,Ž Ms. Wedner said. DoughŽ is scheduled for mainstream release after the festival; it has been well received in other markets. Yet there are films like Dough that will not have that opportunity,Ž Ms. Wedner said. People frequently end up disappointed if they dont make it to the festival. I have people who walk up to me all year and they ask if they can borrow my DVD,Ž Ms. Wedner said. Of course, it doesnt work like that. It comes in theatrical format and it goes back for distribution elsewhere. Or you get a film from Russia or from France, like The Duchess of Warsaw, that dont go anywhere else.Ž The festival does it all with minimal staff „ two full-time positions, two part time plus a corps of volunteers. Ellen works very, very hard, as does our staff,Ž Mr. Ephraim said. We have a tiny staff. Right now were about four people. With this small staff and the volunteers Im very pleased with the job were doing.Ž They will be out in force for the opening night screening, at the Kravis Cen-ters Cohen Pavilion. Films also will be shown at Cobb Theatres at Downtown at the Gardens in Palm Beach Gardens, Cinemark theatres in Boca Raton and Boynton Beach and the Frank Cinebowl & Grill in Delray Beach. The festival wraps Feb. 11 with Raise the Roof,Ž which screens at the Duncan Theatre on Palm Beach State Colleges Lake Worth campus. Its an exciting film. Youd say, its a documentary. How exciting can it be?Ž Ms. Wedner said. But it transcends religions and ethnicities. Its inspiring. If you have an interest in art, if you have an interest in history, or Jewish life in pre-World War II, this film would be very inspiring to you,Ž she said. Thats the perfect storm. You can come to that film, not be Jewish and enjoy it immensely.Ž Raise the RoofŽ follows artists Rick Brown and Laura Brown and their 10-year effort to reconstruct the elabo-rate roof and painted ceiling of the historic, 17th-century Gwozdziec syna-gogue in Poland. The Browns are sched-uled to attend. How they did it and why they did it are fascinating. Early on, one says, Im not Jewish,Ž Ms. Wedner said. The reason they did it is so much more inter-esting.Ž Careful: You might just learn something. Playing it at Duncan Theatre and on a campus, I think it ends the festival on a perfect note.Ž Q FESTIVALFrom page 1 >>What: Donald M.

An end-of-the-week call might hold some interesting information. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A long-overdue expression of appreciation could be offered soon. But admit it: You never really expected it would hap-pen, right? Meanwhile, keep your weekend options open. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Its a good time to dive right into a new chal-lenge, whether its learning a computer app, or how to drive a stick shift, or making a new friend. Whatever it is, good luck. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Single Lambs looking for romance could find Cupid especially accommodating this week. Paired partners also find their relationships benefit-ing from the chubby cherubs attention. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Keep your keen Bulls eye focused on your tar-get, and shake off any attempt to turn your attention elsewhere. You should get some news later in the week that might answer some questions. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your early enthusiasm for a project might have been somewhat premature. Although you feel positive about it, you might need more information in order to make an informed decision. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Taking on a new responsibility might seem like the politically correct thing to do. But even with the promise of support, was it the wis-est? Consider reassessing your upcoming decision. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Apply yourself to completing your task despite all the distractions that might be interfering with your work. Then reward yourself with a weekend of fun shared with people who are close to you. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A business agreement from the past might need to be looked at again. Use this unex-pected development to check out other matters related to it. A weekend venture proves to be rewarding. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Dont ignore that uneasy feeling about mak-ing a commitment. It could be a case of understandably cold feet, or a warning that something isnt as right as it should be. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A colleague could be more supporting of one of your efforts. But its up to you to make the case for it, and that could mean opening up a secret or two, which might be a problem for you. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Expect some good news about a relative youve been worried about. But dont expect the full story to be told -at least not yet. A workplace matter might face shifting priorities. BORN THIS WEEK: You see the wisdom in honesty, and you help others appre-ciate your vision. PUZZLES

This deal, for example, took place in the match between Great Britain and the United States in 1955 and demonstrates how far from par the experts can stray, even in a world cham-pionship. When the British were North-South, the bidding went as shown. Kenneth Konstam bid one diamond, and Boris Schapiro jump-shifted to two hearts. Schapiro was trying for a slam, of course, and Konstam went along with the idea by leaping to four diamonds to show a respectable opening bid contain-ing a self-sufficient suit. It is not known whether Schapiros four-notrump bid was intended as Blackwood. However Konstam inter-preted four notrump, his raise to six indicates he did not treat the bid as ask-ing for aces. Konstam might have felt that a fivediamond response, showing one ace, would not do his hand justice, consid-ering the number of winning tricks he had. At any rate, six notrump became the contract, whereupon the American East cashed the A-K of hearts to defeat the slam. At the other table, the American pair of William Rosen and Milton Ellenby arrived at the same contract! Rosen opened the South hand with three notrump ("gambling"), showing a long solid minor with not much else on the side, and Ellenby raised him to six. Ellenby was hoping there would either be a legitimate play for the slam or that the defense would make the wrong opening lead. The latter wish was granted when the English West led the jack of spades, and Rosen made all 13 tricks. So the American team gained 1,070 points on the deal. Both teams missed the ice-cold six-diamond contract. Q

B16 WEEK OF JANUARY 14-20, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY Im always amazed at the consistency and the quality of collecting events we have in southeastern Florida, from the Treasure Coast down to Miami. Heres the thing: You dont have to be a collector to enjoy these shows. Theres a lot to learn at these events.There also is a lot to look at. One of the things that Im learning is how differently we market antiques nowadays. In the past, it was exclusively to collectors. Now, we view these objects as items of interest because they have a cool look or a fun history. Whatever the reason, its high season in Florida. Heres a sampling of events: Art Palm Beach „ More than 85 galleries from around the world will be exhibiting paintings, sculptures and designs from the 20th and 21st centuries.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 14-20, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19 The Dish: Ravioli with marinara The Place: DAngelos, 4047 Hood Road (adjacent to Publix), Palm Beach Gardens; 340-8800. The Price: $9 The Details: It was another of those rainy days and we needed comfort food. So we turned to this small restaurant wed seen when visiting Publix. Good choice, especially since the tender ravioli was packed with ricotta and the marinara packed plenty of spice „ all the better to warm us up. It strikes us that much of the business at DAngelos may be takeout, but well be back for the efficient, friendly service we received, if only to check out the specials board, which also boasted a homemade choc-olate mousse. Nothing like a meal that starts out savory and ends up sweet. Q „ Scott SimmonsFLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Although his family has prospered in the restaurant business for generations, Tarzi Benazzouzs parents initially tried to discourage him from entering it. When I was 16, I went to a wellknown culinary school in Paris with a good reputation,Ž he said. I passed the entry test and when I told my mother about it she said, No, youre not going to do that. We dont want you to do that, because its hard work. So I went to international business school instead.Ž That led him to a career as a flight dispatcher for Air France, which he did for a number of years. He transferred to JFK International Airport in New York, where he worked for a year. On his way home to Paris for a visit, Mr. Benazzouz stopped in Florida and met a friend here who ran a French restaurant. The friend invited him to dinner, but the amicable meal quickly turned into a job offer. My friend said, Can you help me run my restaurant?Ž he remembered. I said I didnt know anything about restaurants. He said, Are you kidding? Your whole family is in the business. You know everything about restaurants.Ž Mr. Benazzouz agreed to try it for three weeks, starting out as a waiter. He fell in love with the business; quickly realizing his passion for it had always been there, dormant inside of him. My father, who was my mentor, was a chef and my uncle, who had five restau-rants, was a chef to the Spanish prime minister,Ž he said. I made wine with my grandfather. And my cousin has a res-taurant in Dusseldorf. Everybody was in that business but me.Ž Items on his menu are inspired by specialties created by French chefs Alain Ducasse and Jacques Pepin, he added. Alain Ducasse is one of the most influential chefs in the world and has many wonderful restaurants,Ž Mr. Bena-zzouz said. And Jacques Pepin for me is truly a chef who understands what Americans love about French cuisine.Ž Two dishes on his menu are inspired by these chefs „ the Coq Au Vin ($26), which is braised chicken in red wine, mushroom and lardoons, and the Duck Confit ($28), a slow, oven-poached duck leg in an apple prune sauce. We do everything from scratch,Ž he said. And ever since we opened, both dishes have been a big hit.Ž Mr. Benazzouz said the secret to his restaurants appeal lies not only in the food but in the dcor as well. I really want our customers to feel that they can come into the restaurant and immediately feel the Paris ambiance in a way that they feel transported to Paris,Ž he said. Away from the restaurant, Mr. Benazzouz likes to eat simply „ preferably something cooked by his wife, Susan. I love scrambled eggs and bacon,Ž he said. Americans make the best break-fasts in the world and believe me, Ive traveled all over the world. And the way my wife makes it, well, its impressive. In fact, I really enjoy American cuisine. Its still looking for some identity, but the inspiration for it „ such as new ways of making sauces and putting dishes together „ its a new cuisine that Id like to get more into. And the influx of new American chefs were now seeing is the future of cooking in the world.Ž Tarzi BenazzouzAge: 45 Original Hometown: Paris Restaurant: The Parisian Restaurant & Wine Bar, 201 N. U.S. Highway 1, Suite D-9, Jupiter; 360-2224, Mission: To bring a piece of the Paris brasserie experience to Jupiter. Cuisine: French Training: No formal training. What advice would you give someone who wants to be a restaurateur? Passion is important, but everybody has that. Make sure the financial part of run-ning the business is in order. Also there is no good meal without good wine. You need to be able to pair wines with food to complete the dining experience „ along with just the right ambiance, dcor and service.Ž Q In the kitchen with...TARZI BENAZZOUZ, The Parisian Restaurant & Wine Bar, Jupiter BY STEVEN J.

The chili? It will fill you up any day, regardless of the temperature, with plenty of beef and beans, and just the right amount of spice. A bowl of this is all you need to make a meal. 2 CITY DINER3400 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; 659-6776 or City Diner is a go-to place for just about any meal. But with the cooler, rainy weather weve been having nothing sounds better than a hearty bowl of the diners chili. Its meaty and substantial, with a slightly piquant tomato base that doesnt compete with the beans and the beef. Like it? You can compliment the chef; hes also the owner, and hes almost always there. And check out his collec-tion of vintage advertising memorabilia that covers the walls and ceilings of the restaurant. 3 FIELD OF GREENS412 Clematis St., downtown West Palm Beach; 820-2465.

Now, at locations in downtown West Palm Beach and Wellington, its still selling the same fresh sandwiches and salads. But dont forget about the soups „ specifically the vegetarian chili, packed with tomato, corn and other goodies.
