Flagler was the mastermind behind the monopoly that became Stan-dard Oil. With a new business oppor-tunity before him, he spent the balance of his life ensuring its success, building resort hotels and the railway infrastruc-ture needed to attract the winter-weary to the sun-drenched coast. In 1893, he bought a little piece of real estate on a barrier island called Palm Beach, and the rest is wealth-incarnate history. After World War II, a buoyant economy gave rise to the middle class. Fami-lies of more modest means had the financial resources and the aspirations to enjoy a Florida vacation, too. Gary Mormino writes in his book, ÂLand of Sunshine, Land of Dreams,ÂŽ Florida vaca-tions were, for ordinary Americans, Âa democratic ideal and republican virtue.ÂŽ Their experience of tourism was, how-ever, wholly different from the luxury brand Flagler created. Alligators, cypress trees, tropical foliage, fragrant orange groves, sparkling rivers and bubbling springs were the ingredients used to market Florida with a circus flair. Beautiful beaches, live Âmermaids,ÂŽ glass-bottom boats, gator farms, tropical gardens, barefoot ski-ing, rattlesnake milking, shuffleboard, sunbathing, fabulous fishing and more Â„ it was all there, colorful, fascinating, entertaining and not like anything seen in Peoria. Natural Florida was the star attraction. From the 1950s, until the early Â90s, Mormino says the state attracted under 5 million visitors annually; then came the era of A.D. (After Disney) and mega theme parks. Tourism exploded and the sector transformed itself into a full-fledged industry, attracting 50 million visitors annually in the decade that fol-lowed. The growth detonated the sleepy burg of Orlando. The tourism industry never looked back. Most of the folksy and low-tech tourist attractions from the era of B.D. (Before Disney) did not survive. The over-stimu-lated mega attractions eclipsed their sim-pler charm and the wholesale destruction of FloridaÂs natural places was underway. A new chapter opened in the wake of the publicÂs concern for the privately owned parks sliding into permanent demise and the annihilation of the stateÂs natural envi-ronment. Local and state government stepped in to purchase and protect lands and water resources. The state got serious about conserving and protecting the stateÂs natural resourc-es, starting in 1990 with Preservation 2000; and its 2001 successor, Florida For-ever. Because of these programs, parks, trails, forests and wildlife management areas were among the millions of acres added to and held in the public trust. The state funded Preservation 2000 fully for 10 years; and Florida Forever received $300 million annually for its first nine years. Florida Forever was envisioned as the stateÂs Âpremier conservation and recre-ation lands acquisition program, a blue-print for conserving natural resources Âƒ and protecting the stateÂs natural and cultural heritage.ÂŽ The program autho-rized the state to purchase, conserve and protect in perpetuity FloridaÂs most envi-ronmentally sensitive lands and water resources. Then came a double whammy: The Great Recession hit and the funding plummeted to zero; and then a conser-vative-minded Legislature and governor continued to starve it of resources even as the stateÂs economy improved. The annual appropriations to the program suf-fered the fate of many of FloridaÂs springs: It totally dried up. In 2014, Floridians talked back; 75 percent of voters approved Amendment 1, which will generate more than $10 billion over the next 20 years for land acquisi-tion and water conservation. The money comes from an existing source of revenue generated by the documentary stamp tax. The amendment requires the state to dra-matically increase its spending for these purposes; but the governor and his fellow conservatives in the Legislature are act-ing like imperious monarchs, ignoring the votersÂ mandate to fulfill the spirit and letter of the law. Last year, the Legislature approved only $17.4 million for Florida Forever. The amount was far short of the $100 million advocated by environmentalists. The Legislature took Amendment 1 revenue and ran, spending it on extraneous expenses hardly germane to the amend-mentÂs core purposes. The misappropria-tion produced ÂsavingsÂŽ in general revenue to spend on a porkerÂs wish list. Two lawsuits are challenging their pecuniary behavior. They are at it again, proposing only $22.3 million for Florida Forever, far short of serious dollars, and diverting Amend-ment 1 revenue to pay for a laundry list of unrelated overhead and administra-tive expenses. The pious defense of the budget bait and switch is a thin deceit for what is really going on Â„robbery of Amendment 1 funds by legislative misap-propriation. The voters supporting Amendment 1 should be outraged. These legislative two-timers are cheating on their constitu-ents, conducting a full-blown love affair on the side with special interests eager to emasculate the amendmentÂs core pur-poses. Call this duplicity out. Tell these rascals you will drink muddy water and sleep in a hollow log before you will let them make fools out of the voters of this state. Save FloridaÂs most important and environmentally sensitive eco-systems, and save them now, forever. Q Â„ EditorÂs note: This column ran previously. Â„ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

Welcome to EuropeDonald Trump will never be mistaken for a cosmopolitan, but he will bring a distinctively European flavor to the 2016 presidential election, should he win the Republican nomination. As in continental Europe, the two parties in a Donald Trump-Hillary Clinton race would accept the basic parameters of the welfare state, and the debate about the size of government Â„ so central to American politics for decades Â„ would fade to the background. No matter how appalled the left may be by Trump, his prospective takeover of the GOP would be a watershed for progressives. For 80 long years, they have demagogued and shamed the GOP in a forlorn attempt to get it to give up on fundamentally reforming the welfare state. How much time and energy have been devoted to depicting Republicans as shoving elderly people off cliffs and as hell-bent on destroying Social Security. And here comes Donald Trump to finally cry Âuncle.ÂŽ The mogul is adamantly Â„ and apparently sincerely Â„ opposed to entitlement reform. He thus is perfectly content to accept the status quo on half the federal budget. Never mind that the programs are built on badly flawed New Deal and Great Soci-ety assumptions and, if unreformed and unconstrained, will make it impossible to deal with the debt over the long term. These are details beneath Trump Âs notice. What has made American politics so distinctive for so long is the presence of a mass party committed to limited government, thanks to the conservative movement. In most European countries, there is nothing like such a movement, and the limited-government tendency is relegated to think tanks and small political parties, where it usually has no real influence. Trump as the leader of the Republican Party would, in effect, reject limited-government conservatism and instantly make the GOP at the presidential level more like an accommodationist center-right European party in which a Ted Cruz would have no home. Of course, mainstream European political parties tend not to be nationalist or anti-immigration. Here, Trump bears a closer resemblance to EuropeÂs outsider parties on the right. He is less the candidate of American exceptionalism Â„ which has a keen appreciation of our national creed as enunciated in the Declaration and the limits on government power set down by the Constitution Â„ than a robust nation-alism of a blood-and-soil variety found nearly everywhere else in the world. TrumpÂs understanding of the Constitution Â„ the most valuable American contribution to the art of self-government Â„ runs somewhere between attenuated to nonexistent. He has lately been mak-ing noises about loosening libel laws so that he can more easily sue publications for printing things he doesnÂt like. On ÂFox News Sunday,ÂŽ he complained that Âin England, I can tell you itÂs very much different and very much easier.ÂŽ Yes, it is Â„ because England doesnÂt have a First Amendment. The United States happens to have a bulwark of free speech written into its foundational law, although Donald Trump apparently canÂt fathom why. You can say this about a Donald TrumpHillary Clinton race: It will be more nasty, personality-driven and entertaining than anything weÂve seen in decades. It will also, in important respects, be less Ameri-can. Q Â„ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

BY ROGER BUCKWALTERSpecial to Florida WeeklyCan the center hold? That question has often been posed when our political world seems to fly apart and tear our people asunder. It's a good question to ask in this presidential election year. Both Democrats and Republicans have devotees Â„ perhaps minorities but very vocal Â„ who are pulling their par-ties further to the left and right. "Purity" tests challenge candidates to prove who is the most conservative or progressive (i.e., liberal). To those who crave doctrinaire warriors, this is exhilarating. But to those who want to get things done in a diverse country, it presents serious problems. In our politically split nation, there simply aren't enough "pure" liberals or conservatives to comprise a lasting effective majority that's acceptable to most citizens. Extremists eschew compromise and deny the existence of any common ground Â„ both of which are essential to govern in a large pluralistic democracy. And the polarization of our campaigns, to appeal to the farthest reach-es of a party's base, coarsens our politi-cal discourse until it's merely a contest of taunts. Political debate then becomes not a civil dispute of ideas but a brutal war in which motives and personalities are attacked, rather than records and proposals. This is not a new phenomenon. During the early 1950s, philosopher Eric Hoffer wrote: "In the eyes of the true believer, people who have no holy cause are without backbone and character." More than six decades later, we hear that echoed in the slurs being slung at perceived moderates, such as "squishy," "weak" and "RINO." In our hyper-divided politics, extremists on each side like to refer to the other side as nothing more than "far right" or "far left" Â„ denying that any-one could be a reasonable conservative or liberal. And when someone in their own party is recognized as a moderate, that term Â„ or the epithet "establish-ment" Â„ is hurled as an insult by self-appointed protectors of liberal or con-servative orthodoxy. All this shows a profound ignorance of and even antipathy toward our politi-cal system and history, which is filled with accommodations. The Declaration of Independence is the product of compromise, particu-larly on slavery. The Constitution has many compromises, most notably in its creation of the Senate and House of Representatives, which are based on dif-ferent forms of representation to meet the different needs of large and small states. Thus, perhaps ironically, while the country's founders clearly were revo-lutionaries (and probably viewed as extremists by opponents of the Ameri-can Revolution), these leaders were, at heart, moderates who could bridge their differences. Presidents such as Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan at times were seen as ideo-logues, but in office they actually were pragmatists. That isn't surprising. Our governmental structure, with its separation of powers and checks and balances, is designed to encourage compromise and, in fact, assumes it. Compromise, fortunately, has been the norm in U.S. politics. And tragically, the one great issue, slavery, in which it ultimately failed, led to our bloodiest war. In our country today, with more than 320 million people holding so many different opinons, compromise is essen-tial to attain any great goal. And that requires moderation, a quality of those in the political center. That center is certainly broad, with room on the left and right. And despite opposition from the extremes, many of our leaders still try to occupy that space. President Obama is in the center left, as are Bill and Hillary Clinton. Former Speaker of the House John Boehner was in the center right. Maybe even present Speaker Paul Ryan will fit there. Both parties, then, have people who understand the value of moderation, compromise and governing from the wide center. But they too often are drowned out by strident voices and sometimes feel compelled by expedien-cy to pander to a rigid and zealous base. We could speculate on why this troublesome condition exists Â„ causes such as congressional districts that are gerry-mandered to overwhelmingly favor one side, rapid and major social changes, vitriol on partisan media, fear of terror-ism and financial anxiety as other coun-tries increase their role in the world economy. But whatever the causes, we confront the disturbing o utcome. In the end, as an old saying goes, politics is the art of the possible. And in a democracy of many conflict-ing views, what's possible usually is achieved by people who see rival politi-cians as competitors, albeit with faulty ideas or methods, yet still as patri-ots having good intentions who can be worked with, and not as evil ene-mies who must be crushed because their malevolent designs are intended to ruin the country. Can the center hold? It must, if we want a constructive civic life. Mod-eration may not always have the romance but it more often gets the results.

He also likes to lick one of our area rugs and some-times the sofa upholstery. My other dog has a foot fetish: She loves to lick my feet. WhatÂs going on with them? A: Compulsive licking sounds like it should be an underlying behavioral problem, doesnÂt it? ThatÂs certainly a possibility, but it can also be a sign of a physical problem. My colleague Gary Landsberg, a veterinary behav-iorist, says a large proportion of these environmental licking behaviors are due to underlying health issues that cause gastrointestinal upset. Among the conditions that might be causing a dog to feel nauseated are adrenal disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, intestinal lymphosarcoma and liver disease. Some dogs lick because they have dental or other mouth pain. Excessive licking can also be a sign of hunger Â„ itÂs called an appetitive behavior. On the behavior side of things, excessive licking might signal anxiety or some type of conflict. Obviously, a veterinary exam can be a good idea. Consider filming the behav-ior so your veterinarian can see whatÂs going on. ÂA colleague did a study a couple of years ago and found that many dogs were improved when gastrointestinal signs were treated,ÂŽ Dr. Landsberg says. ÂHowever, licking can arise in situa-tions of anxiety and conflict, can be a reinforced behavior and can be a com-pulsive disorder. Therefore, look for behavioral, but rule out gastrointestinal or medical first.ÂŽ And if it turns out that thereÂs nothing physically or mentally wrong with your dogs, well, maybe one just likes to make sure heÂs getting every last molecule of food from his dish and the other simply loves the taste of your feet. Â„ Dr. Marty BeckerQ: My boyfriend smokes. I know that smoking around pets isnÂt good for them, but he says that as long as he doesnÂt smoke near them, there wonÂt be any harmful effect. A: You are right to be concerned about the effects of secondhand smoke on your pets. ThereÂs a direct link between pets living in a smoking environment and a higher risk of health problems. And your boyfriend is wrong to think that stepping outdoors or into another room is enough to offset the risk. An ongoing study by the University of Glasgow found that while cats whose owners smoked away from them had a reduced amount of smoke taken into their bodies, the cats were not alto-gether protected from exposure. The same study found that a gene that acts as a marker of cell damage was higher in dogs living in smoking homes than those in nonsmoking homes. Professor Clare Knottenbelt, professor of small animal medicine and oncol-ogy at the universityÂs Small Animal Hospital, says, ÂOur findings show that exposure to smoke in the home is hav-ing a direct impact on pets. It risks ongoing cell damage, increasing weight gain after castration and has previously been shown to increase the risk of cer-tain cancers.ÂŽ Cats are especially at risk, possibly because they take in more smoke from grooming themselves. Veterinar-ian Victoria Smith, who is investigating the links between passive smoking and lymphoma, a cancer of the blood cells in cats, says, ÂOur work so far has shown that cats take in significant amounts of smoke, and even having outdoor access makes very little difference.ÂŽ For his own health and that of your pets, encourage your boyfriend to stop smoking. If he wonÂt, make a rule that he canÂt smoke in or around your home.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 10-16, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYthat an African-American might seri-ously aspire to the White House was extraordinary, to say the least, and Mr. Jackson Âs outsized personality further piqued the widespread interest and curi-osity. The newspaper I worked for at the time assigned me to chronicle the loquacious candidateÂs quixotic pursuit; I spent 17 days traveling with him. I got to know him just a bit during this time, and so it came to pass that on a late-night flight from Los Angeles to Chicago, as he nursed glasses of apple juice and I did likewise with tumblers of Jack DanielÂs, our conversation turned to matters more personal than political. As is so often the case, when two or more Southerners come together, either by choice or Â„ as in this case Â„ by hap-penstance, the talk turned to coming of age in Dixie. Our experiences differed.I am white, for starters, and I was born in 1949, making me eight years Mr. Jack-sonÂs junior. I came from a stable family of means rooted in Decatur, Georgia, an agreeable suburb of Atlanta. Mr. Jack-son was born out of wedlock in rural Greenville, S.C., to a 16-year-old woman who had fallen prey to the charms of a 33-year-old married neighbor. Discrimi-nation and racism Â„ things I had wit-nessed but only from the standpoint of the oppressors Â„ were hallmarks of his early existence. Mr. Jackson told me he was convinced, as a youth, that if he escaped Jim CrowÂs pernicious thrall, he could make his mark. And so, with great enthusiasm, he had accepted a football scholarship to the University of Illinois. Finally, he had what he so desperately wanted: a paid ticket out of the benighted South. His high hopes were dashed, quickly and rudely. He learned that even in the ÂenlightenedÂŽ North, not everyone was enam-ored with the prospect of a black quar-terback leading the Fighting Illini. Even more searing was his experience when he auditioned for the debate team. The coach told him that despite his obvi-ous rhetorical gifts, he never would be regarded as a serious speaker until he had shed his ÂSouthern Negro accent.ÂŽ Dismayed and disheartened, Mr. Jackson left the University of Illinois after one year and transferred to North Caro-lina A&T, a predominantly black insti-tution. It was a move that only months earlier would have seemed incompre-hensible. ÂI was totally unprepared for the hypocrisy of the North,ÂŽ he said. ÂIn the South, you knew who your enemies were because they would tell you, to your face, exactly what they thought. I did not like that, but I could deal with it better than the backstabbing in the North.ÂŽDark and edgy timesMr. JacksonÂs experience mirrors the agonizing ambivalence that many native Southerners of my generation, both black and white, feel about the region. There was much to love about the South of the 1950s and Â60s, my forma-tive years. But there was plenty to scorn as well. During those two decades, the Deep South was a dark and edgy place as white Southerners realized they were on the losing end of yet another great war, although this one was a conflict involv-ing cultural and social values and not military in nature. There was a palpable sense of foreboding and outright fear that I could detect, even as a child. Brown v. Board of Education (the 1954 decision by the U.S. Supreme Court that outlawed segregation in public schools), the sit-ins at restaurants and lunch counters, the influx of Northern civil rights workers (who were seen as lineal descendants of the hated carpet-baggers), the voter-registration drives, the marches that featured the singing of ÂWe Shall OvercomeÂŽ and the election of John F. Kennedy in 1960 were sig-nal events that devastated the Southern psyche as surely as the capitulation at Appomattox had nearly 100 years before. The widespread loathing of JFK came about through a confluence of circum-stances that absolutely terrified white Southerners. He was thought to be a liberal on racial matters, he was a New England Yankee and he was a Roman Catholic (Georgia, in particular, has a long, shameful history of anti-Cathol-icism), which meant that many South-erners believed his principal allegiance was to the Vatican and not to the United States. When President KennedyÂs death was announced at my high school, scattered cheers echoed in the corridors. ÂI didnÂt know Lady Bird (Lyndon JohnsonÂs wife) was that good of a shot,ÂŽ quipped one of my teachers upon learn-ing of the assassination. When we returned to school after that long weekend of grieving, another teacher told me the wall-to-wall televi-sion coverage of the assassination and its aftermath was annoying and unnec-essary. ÂThe guyÂs dead,ÂŽ this molder of young minds said. ÂWhat more is there to say? LetÂs move on to something else.ÂŽFamilial eccentricitiesMy family was not immune to the hysteria that roiled the South as the civil rights era unfolded. I didnÂt think much of it, to be honest, because most families I knew succumbed to some degree. I viv-idly recollect hearing in the early 1960s a mild-mannered and seemingly reason-able uncle ask a gathering of relatives who had assembled in our living room: ÂWhen is somebody going to put a bullet in that niggerÂs head?ÂŽ He was referring to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Not too many years later, James Earl Ray did precisely that. As a rule, though, the expressions of defiance emanating from my home were more absurd than hateful. When racial violence reached alarming proportions in Alabama, civil rights leaders called for a boycott of the jams and jellies manu-factured and sold under the ÂBamaÂŽ label. Upon hearing this, my father dis-patched my mother to the grocery store to buy every Bama product she could find. For months, the weight of these fruit spreads strained the shelves of our pantry, which had come to resemble a Bama warehouse. (A word here about my mother, Mildred Estelle Hall Cornwell, a lover of poetry and language who died in 1968 at the age of 58. She came from a sensible Southern family. Her father was a doc-tor in Atlanta who pioneered the use of radium in treating cancer. She shared little of my fatherÂs Confederate zeal and seemed to view his effusions with a mixture of bemusement and good-natured resignation. Shortly before their marriage, her future mother-in-law, my grandmother, told her: ÂYouÂve got to understand one thing about the Corn-well men. TheyÂre peculiar.ÂŽ) Another symbolic display of contrariness undertaken by my dad was his refusal to recognize Memorial Day.

But he did celebrate Confederate Memorial Day, an observance concocted by a gaggle of little old ladies in Columbus, Georgia, in 1866, a full two years before the North-ern version came into being. These familial eccentricities did not seem odd or even out of the ordinary. It was life, as I knew it. The awareness that something might be amiss in the society in which I lived did not begin to dawn until I was in my middle and late teens, and even then I took no righ-teous, principled stands. To have openly denounced the inequities of the day would have required courage far beyond my limited capacity.Racism resurgenceSome might assert that revisiting those woeful days in the South is a thrashing of the proverbial dead horse. Nothing can be gained from such an undertaking at this late date, these naysayers reason. To those who put forth that argument, I say: Open your eyes and look around. There is an undeniable resurgence of racial animus, religious intolerance and xenophobic fervor that parallels much of what I witnessed in Georgia all those many years ago. This time, though, the contagion is not contained to a geographic region. It is a national epidemic.Many of the long-gone political demagogues of the Deep South, such as George C. Wallace, the pugna-cious, race-baiting governor of Alabama, would undoubtedly find receptive and appreciative audiences in 21st century America. When things turn ugly (as they have now), it helps to look back in order to see where we may be headed.Disrespect is everywhereAbout three years after my conversation with Jesse Jackson aboard that air-liner, I landed a job as an editor in Cali-fornia at one of the largest newspapers on the West Coast, where Southerners were as abundant as Eskimos. Shortly after I arrived, my boss invited me to lunch. We discussed various aspects of my new position. Toward the end of the meal, he said he wanted to broach something sensitive and hoped I wouldn Ât take offense. He said that seven people already working at the paper had wanted my job, and they were bitterly disappointed at being passed over, especially so since I Â„ the eventual hire Â„ had been import-ed from the hinterlands of Alabama. The last point, that I was a soft-spoken Southerner with a pronounced drawl, was especially galling to many within the newsroom, he said. Southerner plus drawl equates to ÂredneckÂŽ in the minds of many people, he explained. What he told me came as no surprise; I had long been accustomed to the Southerner-as-hick conflation. ÂTheyÂre going to test you, to see if youÂre smart enough, tough enough for the job,ÂŽ he went on. ÂI just thought you should know.ÂŽ He was right. I was confronted early and often. On one occasion, I held open the door to the companyÂs cafeteria so the classical music critic Â„ an imperious, imposing woman with a phony-baloney British accent Â„ could pass ahead of me. A Southern man always holds the door for a woman. No exceptions. ÂI open my own goddamn doors, Mr. Alabama,ÂŽ she said in a voice loud enough to edify everyone within ear-shot. Stung and embarrassed, the only reply I could muster was, ÂI beg your pardon. I mistook you for a lady.ÂŽ I had been conditioned to expect slights based on Southern heritage. Disrespect, my father warned, lurked around every corner, and my antennae were forever raised. As a result, I am certain that over the years I have taken umbrage to innocent remarks that were in no way intended to offend.Important insultsWhen I was a child, our family took a vaca-tion to Washington, D.C. My father was a promi-nent mortgage banker in Atlanta, and he spent con-siderable time dealing with elites and congressionalleaders in Washington. Despite his small-town upbringing, a rube he was not. To the contrary, my dad was impeccable in his manners and his dress and a world traveler who explored the Himalayas on horseback well after he had celebrated his 70th birthday. He was a man of towering intelligence. He had studied engineering and architecture at Georgia Tech, held a law degree and was featured in an article in The New York Times Magazine, which proclaimed him to be one of the foremost amateur genealogists in the United States. He also was tough, blunt-spoken and demanding of others (just ask anyone who worked for him), but his spirit and heart held not a trace of meanness, which made his hardline, uncompromis-ing and sometimes racially repugnant Confederate outpourings a puzzle to many who knew him. One night in D.C. we went to a fancy restaurant he favored, and at the end of the meal a finger bowl was set before him. The waiter said, ÂSir, please do not drink that water, it is for moistening your fingers.ÂŽ Well, that set Dad off. The resulting explosion drew the maitre dÂ, the general manager and finally the owner to our table. Despite profuse apologies, my father could not, would not, be mollified. After several minutes of extreme unpleasant-ness, my parents, my older sister and I stalked out of the restaurant as uncer-emoniously as Robert E. Lee had retreat-ed from Gettysburg. ÂThat waiter intentionally insulted me because he knew I was from the South,ÂŽ Dad said later. ÂHe thinks Southerners have never seen a finger bowl!ÂŽ As I matured, I came to understand my fatherÂs maniacal Southern pride was a logical consequence of his being reared in Monticello, Georgia, about 60 COURTESY FLORIDA MEMORYSurvivors of the Battle of Olustee at the dedication of the battlefield monument in 1912 at Olustee, Florida.

Monticello in 1907, the year of my father Âs birth, was a town of fewer than 2,000 people. It had been plundered and terrorized by Union forces in 1864 as part of Gen. William Tecumseh Sher-manÂs infamous March to the Sea. More than four decades later, the hostility townsfolk felt toward Yankees, blacks and outsiders remained strong. Monticello was relatively prosperous in my fatherÂs early years, thanks largely to King Cotton. Jasper County, of which Monticello is the seat, had some 70,000 acres devoted to the growing of the crop, and nearly 36,000 bales were produced annually. The good times ended in 1915, when the boll weevil Â„ cottonÂs Kryp-tonite Â„ made its way to Georgia and MonticelloÂs fields were laid bare. This outwardly placid little town was actually a place that countenanced stun-ning explosions of racially motivated violence, none of which, thankfully, directly involved my forebears. Between 1885 and 1920, 12 people were lynched in Monticello. That number included 11 African-Americans (nine men and two women) and one white man, according to statistics compiled by the Georgia Lynching Project at Emory University in Atlanta. No one was arrested or tried for any of these murders, although in a place that small the identities of the perpetrators had to be known to just about everyone, including my kinfolk. On the evening of Jan. 14, 1914, less than one month before my fatherÂs 8th birthday, Monticello was home to one of the worst racial atrocities in the history of the Deep South. One hundred white men stormed the county jail and removed a black man and his three grown children (a son and two daughters), who were held on charges of assaulting the white police chief who had arrested them for bootlegging. They were hanged and their bodies then tat-tooed with fusillades of bullets. The father died last, and it was a calculated move. His executioners wanted him to witness the deaths of his children.Bitterness foreverConfederate war veterans were living and active when my father was a boy. He often recalled listening, wide-eyed and thrilled, to their tales of bloody battles in which Rebel soldiers were transformed into knights-errant, not at all unlike the chivalrous heroes who enlivened the writings of Sir Walter Scott, the Scottish author who was wildly popular in the Confederate South. A central character in many of these stories passed along by the geriatric Southern warriors was my great-grand-father, William Dawson Cornwell Â„the Ivanhoe of Central Georgia, if you will. Known widely as ÂCaptain Billy,ÂŽ he was tall, trim and Rhett Butler-handsome. Billy, all agreed, cut a dashing figure in his dress grays. In 1864, at the savage Battle of Olustee in Florida, Billy sustained a serious chest wound and was sent home to Monticello to recuperate and sit out the rest of the war. A few weeks later, he somehow mustered the strength to return to his outfit (Company A, 32nd Georgia Infan-try) visibly diminished but determined to fight to the very end, which he did. His bloodstained battle sword, passed from generation to generation, remains the most sacred artifact in the Cornwell family. (It is now in the possession of my son, who, irony of ironies, lives in Mas-sachusetts.) After the war, Billy took up residence with his family on land near what is now Lake Jackson, just outside of Monticello. He fell into a deep depression and brood-ed over the Southern defeat. Frail and old beyond his years, BillyÂs bitterness toward the North and the freed slaves festered. It also infected generations of Cornwells to come. The chest wound my great-grandfather received at Olustee did not heal properly, rendering him prone to chronic respira-tory ailments; it was the proximate cause of the pneumonia that finally killed him, in 1889 at the age of 53.Family pilgrimagesThe idolatry affixed to the Confederacy was in no way unique to the Cornwell clan, and it remains a distinctive part of Southern culture to this day, as recent flaps over the Confederate flag and Civil War monuments vividly illustrate. ÂWhat differentiates white Southerners who defend Confederate symbols from the rest of us is their devotion to a heritage they perceive as being much more noble than it really was,ÂŽ David Niose, former president of the American Humanist Association, wrote last year in Psychology Today. ÂThere seems to be a sense that, because ancestors fought with honor for a cause they passionately believed, nothing else matters in assess-ing the historical legitimacy of the Con-federate cause.ÂŽ BillyÂs homestead at the river outlasted him by more than 100 years. It stood until the land changed hands a few years back and the new owners tore it down. The old place and its inhabitants had seen a lot: a civil war, Reconstruction, malaria outbreaks and even a violent earthquake in 1886 that left a long, jag-ged crack in the chimney. It was, I always thought, a rotting, forlorn monument to Captain Billy and his Lost Cause. My father and I made periodic pilgrimages to BillyÂs place. These journeys became increasingly fraught with tension as I grew older. I was changing, and my father sensed it, although he never would have guessed the extent of those changes.Uneven segregationBy age 15, I Â„ along with two likeminded friends, Robert Vining and Jimmy Leonard Â„ was sneaking off to catch late-night shows at AtlantaÂs Royal Peacock, the SouthÂs most famous Afri-can-American nightclub. While many of my contemporaries were smitten by the Beatles and other groups associated with The British Invasion, I favored black ÂsoulÂŽ artists. Every notable rhythm-and-blues performer of the 1960s Â„ Otis Redding, Jackie Wilson, Ray Charles and Chuck Jackson, to name but a few Â„ performed there. It was at the Peacock (whose management blessedly never asked us to produce IDs proving that we were legally entitled to be there) that I first sampled Scotch and danced with a woman of color. More often than not, Robert, Jimmy and I were the only white faces in the place, and although racial tensions were high, none of the black patrons Â„ who were, on average, 15 to 20 years older than us Â„ ever utter ed an unkind word to the three white kids from suburbia. Decatur, Georgia, when I was growing up, was not a hotbed of fervent racism, but that is not to say it was a citadel of tolerance. Those not raised in the South in the 1950s and Â60s wrongly assume that every town or city was as violent and extreme as Birmingham, Ala., or Philadelphia, Miss. That is simply untrue. Former New York Times Executive Editor Howell Raines, an Alabama native and an astute historian of the 20th centu-ry South, nailed it when he observed that Âoutsiders tend to think that segregation existed in a uniform way throughout the Solid South. But it didnÂt. Segrega-tion was rigid in some places, relaxed in others; leavened with humanity in some places, enforced with unremitting brutal-ity in others.ÂŽ Decatur was one of those places where segregation was indeed Ârelaxed Âƒ (and) leavened with humanity.ÂŽ My high school, for example, integrated peacefully and without incident during my junior year. Black students may not have been welcomed with open arms, but they were not overtly stigma-tized or subjected to abuse. Yes, there were stray, hurtful comments hurled their way, but crude behavior was by no means widespread, nor was it condoned by the schoolÂs administration or most white students.

The most outward manifestation of intolerance I can recall was a Ku Klux Klan rally held downtown when I was in grammar school. It was well attend-ed, but many of those who showed up seemed to be curiosity seekers, not hard-core Klan disciples. This relative tranquility might have come about because Decatur Âs black residents chose not to provoke or test the white majority. Perhaps they were resigned to their dismal circumstances. I donÂt know. Had widespread demon-strations and calls for change emanated from DecaturÂs black community, who knows what the response would have been. For the most part, however, Deca-tur was a calm, quiet place, with its silent and largely unseen black residents con-fined to their cramped, rundown space, while their white counterparts occupied and controlled everything else.Spurring transformation Two things accelerated my disillusionment with Southern society. The first was the bombing in 1963 of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham. Four young black girls (all about my age) were killed that Sunday morning, blown to kingdom come by a bomb planted by Klansmen. The sheer brutality of this act was too great to comprehend. Many white Southerners speculated Â„ and I heard this with my own ears Â„ that Âniggers, egged on by outside agi-tators, bombed the church themselves to stir up trouble and get sympathy.ÂŽ It was a theory born of cynicism and hate that, even at the tender age of 14, I simply could not buy. The second transformational occurrence involved a book by John Stein-beck, ÂTravels with Charley.ÂŽ In 1960, Mr. Steinbeck and his dog, Charley, set out on a journey across America in a camper. I must have been 15 or so when I read it. Although ÂTravels with CharleyÂŽ is light fare when held up against ÂThe Grapes of Wrath,ÂŽ ÂOf Mice and Men,ÂŽ ÂEast of EdenÂŽ and ÂThe Winter of Our Discontent,ÂŽ in one portion of the book Mr. Steinbeck describes his encounters with screeching white women who were protesting integration in New Orleans. The vile racial slurs and frenzied behav-ior he recounted were oh-so familiar. Something Â„ IÂm not sure what Â„ about seeing it spelled out on the printed page filled me with shame and regret. By the time I reached my senior year in high school, I had come to view my surroundings as something akin to a federal minimum-security prison: fairly comfortable, but confining nonetheless. I never talked to my Dad about our rapidly diverging views because I knew neither of us were going to change. In retrospect, that was a mistake on my part. I should have at least made the effort. In 1975, I was working as a newspaper reporter in Birmingham. The church bombing, which remained unsolved at that time, still haunted me. I wrote a long piece for The Nation magazine detailing how Alabama authorities, who were sympathetic to the Ku Klux Klan, had thwarted the FBIÂs investigation into this act of domestic terrorism. It was my first published work in a national publication. My father, who did not approve of news reporting that cast the South in an unfavorable light, never acknowledged the articleÂs existence. I donÂt even know if he ever looked at the copy of the magazine I gave to him.Give and takeIÂd like to think that for members of my generation who are given to thought-ful introspection, the positives of the Southern experience Â„ the emphasis on manners and family, the courtliness, the respect for elders, the music, the sump-tuous artery-clogging food, the grand tradition of storytelling and literature, the crisp fall afternoons spent in college football stadiums, the rich sense of his-tory and place Â„ outweigh the historical negatives, some of which remain unre-solved. An intrepid interviewer once asked Winston Churchill if his immoderate use of intoxicating beverages had dimin-ished him in any way. His reply: ÂI have taken more out of alcohol than alcohol has taken out of me.ÂŽ On balance, IÂd say Â„ as with Sir WinstonÂs distilled spirits Â„ I have taken more out of the South than the South has taken out of me.

HEALTHY LIVINGRange of treatments available for prostate cancerMen diagnosed with prostate cancer can choose from a wide range of treat-ment options. Depending on their age, expected life span, stage and grade of cancer, feelings about side effects and likelihood of a cure, men may be able to wait and see if the cancer spreads, undergo surgery, have radiation therapy or select hormone therapy. Other poten-tial choices could include alternative treatments, such as cryosurgery, chemo-therapy or biologic therapy. Watchful waiting, or expectant management, may be an option for men with slow growing cancer who are older or have other serious health problems. For them, treatment through surgery or radiation may not help them live longer. The side effects and associated risks of treatment may also outweigh the pos-sible benefits. Watchful waiting involves carefully monitoring the cancer during checkups every three to six months and an annual ultrasound-guided prostate biopsy. Active treatment may be pur-sued if symptoms develop or the cancer begins to grow more quickly. A man in good health may be a candidate for surgical treatment of prostate cancer. Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center offers a new minimally inva-sive, robotic-assisted procedure Â„ a radical prostatectomy Â„ using the da Vinci Surgical System, which involves removing the prostate, surrounding tis-sue and seminal vesicles. The system is equipped with high-definition 3D min-iature cameras, designed so the surgeon can operate through very small inci-sions. Compared to traditional open surgery, the procedure typically results in a shorter hospital stay and a faster recovery time. Radiation therapy is another potential treatment option that uses high-energy X-rays or particles of radiation to either kill cancer cells or prevent them from growing. Localized prostate cancer also may be treated with cryosurgery, which requires freezing and destroying cancer cells. Cancer that has spread beyond the prostate sometimes may be treated with chemotherapy if hormone therapy has not been effective. Chemotherapy is not usually recommended to treat early prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is a very complex disease, and each man Âs experience will be unique. Regardless of the treatment path they ultimately follow, men should carefully evaluate all their options and even get a second opinion if they have several choices available. For additional information about prostate cancer, talk with your doctor. You also can learn more by attending a lecture at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center on the radical prostatectomy procedure. Dr. Fred Muhletaler, a robotic surgeon and urologist on the hospitalÂs medical staff, will discuss the new minimally inva-sive treatment option in more detail on March 17 from 6-7 p.m. Space is limited, so please call 625-5070, or visit pbgmc.com/for-patients/get-to-know-us/classes-events to make a reservation.

Good Samaritan Medical Center Âs new Cancer Genetics Program can help determine whether you are at risk for certain types of cancer. The program, led by Dr. Elisabeth McKeen, medical oncologist, and Conni Murphy, a nurse practitioner with spe-cialized training in cancer genetics, con-sists of a genetic screening process and counseling sessions. During an initial evaluation period, the patient will fill out a questionnaire, which includes questions regarding per-sonal and family history of cancer. The next step is genetic testing, which con-sists of a simple mouthwash or blood test. Analysis of the sample can determine if the patient inherited a gene mutation that may increase cancer risk. The results of genetic testing can help people make informed decisions about how to best manage future healthcare. They also may assist a doctor in developing a personalized plan of care. For example, if it is determined that a patient is at risk for breast cancer, that individual may be advised to add breast MRIs to your routine screenings to aid in early detection. ÂThe Good Sam Cancer Institute has been a leader in cancer preven-tion and treatment within our com-munity for decades,ÂŽ Mark Nosacka, CEO of the West Palm Beach hospital, said in a statement. ÂWith the addition of the Cancer Genetics Program, we are expanding our services by allow-ing people to have the opportunity to determine whether they have a higher-than-average risk of cancer. This service will potentially enable us to expand the number of people that can be helped at the Good Sam Cancer Institute and the Good Sam Breast Institute.ÂŽ Before and after genetic testing, a patient may have a genetic counseling session, where a member of the pro-gramÂs specially trained staff will help explain results and answer any ques-tions or concerns. Additionally, Good SamaritanÂs pastoral care team can help patients cope psychologically with the results of genetic testing, and the hospitalÂs nutri-tion team is available to help maintain your nutritional well-being to reduce the risk of recurrence.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE A16 WEEK OF MARCH 10-16, 2016 A year after The Colony Hotel underwent a $15 million Âreimagining,ÂŽ its restaurant has undergone a little fluff-ing of its own. Polo Steaks & Seafood now bears the name Polo At The Colony Hotel. The restaurant has a new look courtesy of Carleton Varney, who oversaw the rest of the design at the hotel. Colorful polo-themed murals by the noted photographer Harry Benson frame the dining room and pillars that resemble popular cocktails complete the design. Bu t itÂs the menu that matters when youÂre talking about a restaurant. Days after receiving a Four Diamond Rating from AAA, Roger Everingham, vice president and general manager of The Colony, unveiled a new menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner, all prepared under the direction of the hotelÂs executive chef, Vincente Bur-laos, and its chef de cuisine, Stephen Darling. ÂWeÂve reimagined the menu to match the new look of Polo and to emphasize the fresh herbs and veg-etables that are being hand-grown in a large garden behind the hotel, includ-ing basil, oregano, chives, thyme, tar-ragon, mint and more,ÂŽ Mr. Evering-ham said in a statement. ÂI am confi-dent our guests will be as pleased with this new menu as they are with the quality and service they consistently expect from The Colony.ÂŽ Menu selections include Maine Lobster Salad, Seared Hudson Valley Foie Gras, Dover Sole (deboned tableside), Horseradish-Brown Sugar Crusted Alas-kan Salmon, Filet of Snapper Meunire, Chicken Schnitzel, Roast Prime Rib of Beef, Chteaubriand for Two and Gulf Shrimp Gnocchi, among others. ÂHaving fresh ingredients is a true complement to any dish,ÂŽ Mr. Darling said in the statement. ÂAt The Colony, we believe strongly in having sustain-able, fresh, locally sourced ingredients in our culinary creations and know that it is something our guests appreciate as well.ÂŽ For more information, call 655-5430 or visit thecolonypalmbeach.com.

Just the idea of having to change his number makes him nuts. ÂPeople have cell phones from all over the country. You have a 913 or 212 New York City number IÂm 239. I would never change. I still use AOL like IÂm a putz. If there are people behind my back, laughing, because they say I still have a 239 number or I use AOL Âƒ well Âƒ I live in a world of constant change. ThereÂs no need to make this change. ItÂs unnecessary.ÂŽ It turns out, Mud isnÂt the only person whose b uttons g et pushed when you talk area codes. When the North American Numbering Plan was first cooked up by Bell Labs in the 1940s, all of Florida was the 305. Today, that legacy code belongs to the Miami area. With the emergence of cell phones and Internet VOIP phone lines, area codes may be less significant as a means of determin-ing oneÂs physical location. But they often tell a story about where somebody has been Â„ a place where a heart still lingers long after a landline has been disconnected. From the 941 to the 561 and points above and below, people hold on to their cherished digits for various reasons. ÂFour-forty. ItÂs the west side of Cleveland, Ohio. IÂve had this number since high school. I feel that in some ways itÂs part of my identity,ÂŽ says Jennifer Trammell, director at NewsBank in Naples. Chris Wadsworth, a former reporter and managing editor at NBC2, moved from the 239 to the 703 suburbs of Washington, D.C., area six years ago. He kept his Florida number. ÂInitially, it was for convenience. All our friends and family had a 239 number,ÂŽ he says. ÂBut over the years itÂs become almost like a souvenir, like keeping a picture in my pocket Âƒ We hope to get back down there someday, maybe for retire-ment, and keep the number all the way throughout.ÂŽ Other people are less sentimental, but no less calculated in their attachment to their numbers. ÂI returned to Florida and the question came up, do I change my number?ÂŽ says Richmond Schmidt, a professional butler based in West Palm Beach. He spent three years in New York City, where he received the tony 917 area code that encompasses Fifth Avenue, where he worked. When he returned to Florida, he kept the number. ÂI did not keep it as a status symbol, but I know some people who have done that. ItÂs not a vanity code for me.ÂŽ Rather, Mr. Schmidt was being practical, keep-ing the number to maintain business and personal connections, but also, as a courtesy. ÂPeople would change their numbers as a convenience to friends and acquaintances in their area so that they wouldnÂt have to pay long distance bills,ÂŽ he says of the time eight years ago, when cell phones were taking hold but more people remained tethered to their land lines. ÂBut thatÂs obsolete. Even from home, people are using cell phones. ItÂs more of a convenience now not to change.ÂŽ The numbers bear out Mr. SchmidtÂs logic. According to the National Health Institute Survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control, two in five households, or 44 percent, rely only on cell phone ser-vice. More than half of American children live in a home without a landline but with cellular service.

A20 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 10-16, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY MONEY & INVESTINGThe large trade deficit is not necessarily a bad thingI really can Ât stand almost everything that is said in political debates with regard to the economy, as most of it is just grandstanding at best and down-right lies at the worst. However, one hot button political issue is true and is get-ting truer by the month Â„ Americans are buying more and more stuff made by people who are not Americans. Most politicians and want-to-be politicians will tell you that this is a bad thing, but I would take issue with that. Regardless of how you feel about this, last week the latest trade deficit figures came out and it was a huge number. In January, the U.S. imported $45 billion worth of goods more than it exported to other countries. And that is only for one month. So why was our trade deficit so large, and is this really a bad thing? The primary reason for the $45 billion differential between imports and exports is that exports slumped 2.1 per-cent to $176.5 billion in January, the lowest level since 2011. The drop was caused by a variety of factors. First, the strong dollar makes U.S. goods more expensive to foreign buyers. This will continue to be a strong headwind for U.S. multinational compa-nies in the months ahead. Second, many countries outside of the U.S. are economically struggling. Many have negative growth and as a result, consumers within those counties are buying fewer goods and ser-vices. Finally, many international governments are giving special incentives and subsidies to their domestic manufacturers to spur growth, making U.S. goods less competitive overseas. But before we come to the conclusion that foreign manufactur-ers are flooding the U.S. with their goods while blocking Ameri-can products (as many politicians would like us to believe), it is important to note that imports were also down in January, by 1.3 percent. This can be a warn-ing sign for our economy as the strong US Dollar makes inter-national goods Âcheap.ÂŽ A weak import number indicates that U.S. consumers and businesses are not readily spending and maybe our econ-omy is not as strong as we would like. So is a trade deficit a bad thing? As with most complex issues, the answer is Âit depends.ÂŽ On one hand, a large trade deficit caused by strong imports may be a positive thing, as it shows that the U.S. is consuming a lot of goods and services. This is indicative of a strong economy. On the other hand, a large trade deficit caused by a lack of exports is not very positive. It shows that either foreign governments are blocking the importation of our goods or that people and companies in those other countries do not desire them. Is there a solution for our large trade deficit? There is an easy solution to it Â„ put massive tariffs on all imports. While this would solve one Âproblem,ÂŽ it would also result in other countries placing tariffs on U.S. goods, international trade grinding to a halt, and almost certainly a global depression. More beneficially, the easing of quotas, elimination of government subsi-dies, stabilization of exchange rates, and fair taxes across countries should boost exports and greatly benefit the U.S. That is why trade pacts typically spur growth and benefit all countries. But in the meantime, large trade deficits have been around for decades and will continue far into the future. And that doesnÂt bother me one bit. Q Â„ Eric Bretan, the co-owner of RickÂs Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda (a buyer and seller of estate jewelry and diamonds), was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. eric BRETANestaterick@gmail.com BEHIND THE WHEELHyundai is marketing 2017 Elantra as an upscale valueTraditionally the best recipe for massmarket compact car success is to play strongly into the idea that there is value in durability. It has worked extremely well for cars like the Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic. But the new 2017 Hyundai Elantra is looking at this market differently. The Korean carmaker believes it has established its reputation for reliability on par with the other Asian companies. So rather than continue to spend money further reinforcing this status, Hyundai is investing in more premium features and materials. This new Elantra has moved upmarket. The design of the sheet metal has a cleaner and more uniform appearance that feels as mature as a Toyota Camry. Plus, optional LED accent lights running up the front bumper inlet are a nice touch. The base model begins at $17,985. This is the only way to get a five-speed manual transmission, which is what used to be a mainstay in this economy segment. Even at this starting point, it comes with nice features like air conditioning, satellite radio, power locks and power windows, but anyone looking to add options will first need the $1,000 upgrade to an auto-matic transmission. From there, the Elantra has only two trim levels, and each has only two upgrades. This helps the company bundle options, which helps with economies of scale. For example, the ÂPopular EquipmentÂŽ package adds features like a touchscreen radio, rear view camera, cruise control, Bluetooth and more for a reasonable $800. From there it escalates to features not often found in this class, like blind-spot detection, leather seats, automatic emer-gency braking and lane departure warning. Checking every option box creates a sedan that leaves the dealership for around $27,500. ThatÂs a good value for a car whose leather-wrapped steering wheel, multifunction display and generous back-seat room is very reminiscent of the pre-mium Genesis we drove in November. The standard 147 hp 2.0-liter motor offers good power, and the acceleration is brisk enough to perform passing maneu-vers on a two-lane highway. Still, there are a few other companies out there that have livelier engines. The Mazda3, for example, does not have to move around quite as many luxury features, and its standard 2.0-liter motor has more power so it has a better performance feel. This is not nec-essarily an oversight by Hyundai. It has promised to introduce an Elantra Sport before the end of the year that will have a more spirited turbocharged engine.Besides, performance is not the main focus of this sedan. There was a lot invest-ed in making sure it is quiet and comfort-able. ThereÂs so much isolation and so little vibration that the Elantra almost feels like it shuts off when idling at stoplights. There are some cars that actually have a Start/Stop feature that doesnÂt feel this smooth. It wouldnÂt even be a surprise if some of the horsepower budget was uti-lized for elevating the carÂs quality above the competition. This new Elantra has answered a question we did not know to ask. The best compact cars have traditionally been about getting some driving pleasure in a solid and value-priced package. Has this market shifted? Maybe the buyers are no longer looking for cheap thrills, and now they demand premium features and new technology without giv-ing up the value price. More importantly for the Elantra, it provides a worthy rebut-tal to the old argument that there are better-equipped pre-owned cars in the crowded $18K-$28K price segment. The idea of premium features for all has plenty of merit. The only pitfall is that keeping the price down means a lot of similar the packaging. This can create a bit of a cookie-c utter sedan image. But just like any good dessert, the 2017 Elantra is more about the quality of ingredients than what shapes it. So now you can get boutique shortbread for chocolate chip cookie prices.

KOVEL: ANTIQUESDaring Art Deco designers created streamlined looks BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVEL Get a clue to the age of an antique from part of the style, like a ball and claw foot on a Chippendale chair of the 18th century, or a hammered aluminum bowl of the 1930s. But sometimes the style is unfamiliar and even the use is a mys-tery. The most daring designers of the 1920s era were making Art Deco pieces with geometric designs, symmetry and a streamlined look. But some artists creat-ed their own styles and even used unique pieces of metal or other unusual materi-als. Oscar Bach (1884-1957) was born in Germany and studied painting and metal-lic arts. He became artistic director of a firm winning awards for his designs. He used the signs of the zodiac, mythologi-cal figures, grapevines, masks, grotesque figures and other designs from the past. Jewels adorned some special-order boxes and book covers. In 1911, he moved to the United States to join his brother. They formed the Oscar B. Bach Studios and marked almost all of their work with that name. After Bach had an unfriendly split with a partner, not his brother, he was upset to learn the ex-partner continued to use his designs, selling the metal work with no name or a new name. This has caused confusion for toda yÂs collectors. But the quality and originality of BachÂs work can be identified by experts. A strange iron table and chair Âin the man-ner of BachÂŽ sold at CowanÂs Auctions in Cincinnati in the winter of 2015. It has a marble top on an iron cabinet with enamel painted doors and extra tall, thin legs. The telephone stand or table is a furniture form that was in use from about 1915 to the 1960s. The piece is not marked, so it sold for only $450, much less than an authenticated work by Bach. Q: IÂm looking for information about an old icebox with the nameplate ÂIce-Way Approved Refrigerator with cork-board insulation, built especially for the ice industry.ÂŽ When was it made and what might it be worth? A: Ice-Way refrigerators were sold under the brand name ÂLeonardÂŽ and were made by the Grand Rapids Refrig-erator Company. The company was founded by Charles H. Leonard in 1881 as the Leonard Refrig-erator Company. At first it made wooden icebox cabinets. Electric refrigerators were made in 1918. Leonard Ice-Way refrigerators were made in several styles and sizes. They sell for about $100-$200. The metal iceboxes are not as expensive. Q: I have a heart-shaped dish our family tradition claims was used for very special ice cream sundaes at a soda foun-tain about 1930. I wonder if you know anything about its special use. Was it for special occasions? Was the dish given away or sold? A: The heart-shaped ice cream dish was used with a heart-shaped ice cream dipper made in 1925. The scoop of ice cream fit perfectly into the dish. Then the Âsoda jerkÂŽ finished off a special sundae with a flavored sauce, chocolate, marshmallow, fruit or a combination. The sundae might even have been topped with whipped cream, sprinkles or nuts. The signature of the inventor of the dip-per, John Manos, was part of the design. New heart-shaped glass dishes sell for just a few dollars today. The 1925 dishes sold wholesale in a set of 24 dishes and a dipper for $8.28. In recent years, a single dish has auctioned for about $1,000. Tip: Scratches on leather may be partially hidden by polishing the leather with saddle soap.

HONORARY CHAIRS Donald J. and Melania TrumpNATURALLY Over a lifetime of c ollecting, IÂve seen objects rise and fall in value. I remember back in the 1970s, when AvonÂs figural perfume bottles were all the rage Â„ people would pay $10, $15 for unusual shapes and limited editions. Never mind that they did not care for the contents of the bottles. Now, a quick scan of eBay confirms what IÂve known for years: TheyÂre worth precious little, with many sitting online priced at a dollar or two. ThatÂs part of the cycle of collecting.So what has retained its value?Think about who has been least affected by changes in the economy. That would be the upper echelon of collectors, for whom money is no object. Rare artwork, antiques with great provenance, fine porcelain and decorative objects retain value simply because of who collects them. But the same can hold true with lesser collectibles. I recently paid $400 for a Moorcroft Pottery charger that dates from the 1930s, the time when BritainÂs Queen Mary was collecting the ware. Twenty years ago, it would have been a $500 or $600 piece. In South Florida, itÂs worth about what I paid for it, no more, no less. But it has held a much greater percentage of value over the years than a lesser collectible, such as Avon bottles. Silver will always be worth its weight in scrap. Yes, prices are down right now Â„ around $15 an ounce Â„ but thatÂs still better than half of what it was at its peak and you have the enjoyment of the item. The same can be said for gold or any other commodity. Likewise, pieces bearing the Tiffany or any other luxury label have cachet. Of course, even the best of things can cycle in and out of popularity. One of my antiques dealer friends remembers a time when Victorian barrel-front secretaries fetched a few thousand dollars apiece wholesale. Now, pieces are retailing at less than $1,000. ThatÂs consistent with a trend in which demand for Victorian furniture has dropped as people want pieces that reflect a more casual lifestyle. Still, quality is quality, and a better piece will sell for more when itÂs time to move on. The bottom line: You almost always get what you pay for. Buy the best you can afford, and enjoy it. Heck, enjoying the piece is half the value Â„ at least in my book. Q scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org COLLECTORÂS CORNERWhen it comes to collecting, buy the best you can afford LOOK WHAT I FOUNDBought: Revue Antiques, 3701 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; 832-2438. Cost: $400. The Skinny: IÂve always loved Moorcroft Pottery. The deeply saturated hues of the glazes are stunning, as are the English companyÂs Art Nouveau designs. My grandmother had a phenomenal lamp in a pansy pattern made from a vase that had belonged to my grandfatherÂs grandmother. Yes, Grandma and her mother-inlaw destroyed much of the monetary value of the piece when they turned it into a lamp back in the Â40s, but itÂs still worth several hundred dollars, and is priceless to me. This 10-inch charger, in the Anemone pattern, dates from the 1930s, and it bears the signature of the companyÂs founder, William Moorcroft. True to form, the colors are lustrous, and the detail is gorgeous. It will go beautifully with GrandmaÂs lamp.

Get your Peeps in a row in time for Lake Worth art show SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Peeps Show returns to the Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery on Friday, March 18, for its seventh year. Easily the most popular event the gallery pro-duces each year, this exhibition draws thousands of happy fans. The opening will begin at 6 p.m. with the celebrity judging of entries. The public will be given ballots so they can vote for and voice the Peeples Choice. The exhibition will close April 6. Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery is at 15 S. J St. in downtown Lake Worth. The Peeps Show involves those gooey marshmallow chicks and rabbits that pop up every year around Easter. Peeps Shows began in Washington, D.C., the brainchild of The Washington Post. Shows have evolved all over the nation. Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery is the only Peeps show held in the Palm Beaches. Peeps creator Bob Born and Patricia Born will join local celebrity judges in choosing the best five of this year Âs entries. Top prize is $100. The Peeps company awards an additional four prizes of $50 Peeps gifts. Mr. BornÂs candy company also produces Hot Tamales, Mike and IkeÂs and Golden-berg Peanut Chews. Television docu-mentaries have been made about the local resident. For seven years the Clay Glass Metal Stone gallery has joined in the nation-al Peeps craze, presenting dozens of gooey dioramas made from the icon-ic Easter candy. Gallery artists have made clothing from Peeps and tor-tured every conceivable pun in creating funny, scary, kooky and clever works of art from these sugary treats. From the Cannibal Peeps, who roasted their fellow Peeps around a campfire, to Little Bo Peep, and Peeps at the Beach, the creativity escalated with dozens of depictions. Artists from around Palm Beach County are invited to join the exhibition. Only the guest artists are eligible to win prizes. Visitors to the gallery will be given five ballots and the opportunity to vote for their five favorite Peeps displays. In 2015, 8,114 ballots were cast by more than 1,600 visitors. For information, call Joyce Brown at (215) 205-9441 or Joyce@FlamingoClay-Studio.org. Gallery phone: 588-8344.

B8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 10-16, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYfeeding ourselves. We Âd resort to either a throw-together dinner of salmon on the grill with roasted veggies and fruit or, more often, weÂd head out to eat. The result was that we ate out three or four times a week Â„ not counting the restaurant reviews I do for Florida Weekly. Even when going to relatively inexpensive places Â„ Thai, Chinese, neighborhood Italian Â„ the expense quickly adds up. When I stopped to figure out what we were spending, I was horrified: upwards of $200 a week on dinners out, not to men-tion what we threw away in the form of food that went bad in the refrigerator. Then my stepdaughter, who lives in Boston and juggles a high-pressure job and single motherhood, told me she had started using Blue Apron, a subscription meal plan service, and she really liked it. I was dubious. IÂd tried another one Â„ Plated Â„ about a year ago and had been disappointed by the results. But she sent me an invitation to try Blue Apron, and so for a discounted price Â„ I think the first one was $20 Â„ I received our first three meals. The box was delivered to our door filled with a bounty of fresh vegetables and some fresh fish that was carefully tucked between packs of dry ice. There were large, full-color recipe cards, too, with pictures of what we were going to eat: cod and potato brandade with watermelon relish salad and gar lic toasts; b utternu t squash and Gouda casserole with riga-toni, Brussels sprouts and chestnut bread-crumbs; and creamy lemon linguini with caramelized onion, chard and walnuts. It felt like Christmas. I could hardly wait to start cooking.Costly but convenientSubscription meal boxes have become popular among working folks who have more money than time and energy. They cut down on the amount of time you spend shopping and digging up recipes. Instead, all you have to do is open your box, pull out the ingredients, choose a recipe and get started. They arenÂt inexpensive. Most of the plans run $10-$15 per person per meal. Two of the most popular Â„ Blue Apron and Hello Fresh, the ones IÂve been test-ing over the past couple of months Â„ run about $9-$10 per meal per person. Com-pare that with what the USDA estimates to be the cost of most home-prepared meals Â„ somewhere between $1.80 and $3.60 per person per meal (that seems to be the extreme low end) Â„ and itÂs clear that these arenÂt meant to be money savers. But depending on your dining habits, they might actually save you money. And there are a number of other advantages as well. Arlene Knox of Fort Myers has a demanding job in Naples and two teenaged daughters, resulting in a hectic, fast-paced life, particularly during the winter season. So she started ordering Blue Apron. ÂI absolutely love it,ÂŽ Ms. Knox says. ÂI love to cook, and itÂs relaxing for me, but during season is our busiest time. IÂm often working weekends, and then there are the kids and all their activities. For me to make this type of meal takes a level of planning I just donÂt have the time for right now.ÂŽ In the summer, she adds, she has more time to spend cooking. ÂBut right now, this is brilliant. ItÂs worth the money. WeÂre not wasting food. We are eating everything. ItÂs just enough. The kids like it, and weÂre get-ting to try new stuff. ItÂs wonderful.ÂŽ She says that before Blue Apron, she frequently found herself headed to the supermarket after work. ÂI can go to the grocery store and blow 60 bucks and still not have three meals prepared. Sometimes itÂs too much for me to think about.ÂŽ Although the meals run about $10 each per person, ÂIÂm saving money because I only buy the staple stuff when I go to the store. And IÂm not going to the store every other day. ItÂs a lot of food. ItÂs often dinner with some left over for lunch. When the three of us are home, itÂs enough for all of us.ÂŽ (That drops the price to less than $7 per person.) Ms. Knox has selected the omnivore version for her family; you can also pick one with fish and vegetarian options or just vegetarian dishes. Last weekend, she was making chicken cutlets and was plan-ning pork chops for the following night. Michael McNally and Beth Drouin have been receiving the fish and vegetable box once a month for about four months now and have been enjoying them. Because Ms. Drouin isnÂt a big fan of butt ernut squash, she substitutes another dish via their online account when she sees that coming up on the menu, an option she likes. In general, the couple has enjoyed the dishes they have tried, especially some of the unusual combinations such as the warm grain salad made with farro, rad-ishes, beet, avocado, orange, tarragon, wal-nuts and gorgonzola cheese. At first, they say, the process felt somewhat labor intensive, but then they learned to conquer and divide. ÂInitially, it was a whole lot more trouble than I expected,ÂŽ says Mr. McNally. ÂBut weÂve gotten better at it. We donÂt need to read each recipe three times anymore. Now one of us does the prep and the other picks it up from there. ThereÂs very little waste, and with a lot of the dishes, thereÂs enough for two meals and another lunch.ÂŽ Joann Haley has been subscribing to Blue Apron for about three months and says she and her husband, Mitch, Âhave really enjoyed about 80 percent of the meals.ÂŽ When they didnÂt care for them, it was mostly because they prefer their food with a lot of seasoning and heat and these dishes were on the blander side. The Haleys had been getting a weekly package but just cut back to every other week of the fish and vegetable option. Ms. Haley says although some of the recipes take a bit more preparation than estimated on the recipe cards, in general she has found them easy to prepare. And the savings on their grocery bills have been Âtremendous. I think the amount weÂre saving on groceries equals what the Blue Apron box costs,ÂŽ she says. Another plus is that itÂs introduced them to a broader range of ingredients. ÂIÂd never even seen black rice before,ÂŽ she says. ÂI probably would never have purchased farro, but now I love farro (an ancient strain of wheat growing in popu-larity because of its high protein content). And I never thought to use fruits in dishes, but some of the recipes add an orange or clementine to the recipe and it brightens it up. And IÂve never eaten this much kale Â„ ever. ÂIt encourages me to cook more frequently,ÂŽ Ms. Haley says, Âbecause I have all the ingredients and a recipe already there.ÂŽAn appetizing optionOur experience has been much like that of the others quoted in this story. IÂve cooked with ingredients such as freekeh (a protein-packed wheat) as well as with Medjool dates, sumac, labneh and tatsoi. WeÂve loved the variety and the ease of knowing we could come home and there would be something to cook with all the ingredients ready and waiting. For those who eat meat Â„ my husband eats fish but not meat, so we subscribed to the vegetarian option with Hello Fresh and the fish and veggie one with Blue Apron Â„ there are other interesting dish-es. Recent offerings for carnivores on the Hello Fresh menus have included chicken paillard with mustard potato and green bean salad; Korean-style beef stir fry with broccolini, brown rice and sesame; and bone-in pork chops with roasted pear, col-lards and shallot cream sauce. ItÂs hard for me to say which of the services I like better. They run about the same price, and both are delivered midweek to my door. (Both also offer a larger box for families that are priced accordingly.) You can stop and start your deliveries whenever you want. Both give you a rough estimate of prep time. Hello Fresh packages each meal in a separate box (all contained in a larger cardboard box delivered to your door) thatÂs labeled and can be slipped right into the refrigerator as-is. Then all you need to do is pull it out when you are ready to use it. ThatÂs a big plus. The recipes also clear-ly state if there are any allergens in them (soy, gluten, etc.) and rate the recipeÂs degree of difficulty. Blue Apron sends its ingredients for all three meals in one large box, so you do have to do a little sorting when itÂs time to cook. But the ingredients are usually in plastic wrappers that are labeled, and the smaller items are grouped in a bag marked ÂknickknacksÂŽ with the recipeÂs title on them, so it isnÂt that tough to gather them. If you eat fish but not meat, Blue ApronÂs weekly selections include one fish dish and two veggie dishes, whereas itÂs either all veggie or meat and fish on the Hello Fresh plan. We like having a fish dish. Hello Fresh has been featuring one dish a week created by well-known chef Jamie Oliver. While I was initially excited at the prospect of trying some of his offerings, they have been the least flavorful ones Â„ and in last weekÂs package, JamieÂs Squash and Penne Bake with Golden Bread Crumbs packed 886 calories a serv-ing, including a whopping 23 grams of fat, 11 of those the saturated variety. For a chef known for being health-conscious, this seemed extreme. After having tried about a dozen dishes from each service, I may be slightly more favorably disposed to Blue ApronÂs recipes and the fact that it offers the mix of fish and veggies. But both deliver top-quality products Â„ fresh produce and eggs and no processed foods. The only packaged items IÂve received are some beans, and they typically come in a carton rather than a can. The result is that I look forward to cooking each night and weÂve had no repeats yet in the two months that weÂve been subscribers. Also, our dining out has been considerably reduced. We go out about once a week now, so the money we save from staying home just one night a week pays for three Blue Apron or Hello Fresh meals. Add to that the fact that our supermarket bills are about half what they used to be, and we rarely throw out any rotten fruit and vegetables anymore, and it equals sav-ings for us. The best part: We are eating healthy meals at home and without having to battle our way into restaurants that are teeming with winter visitors. These plans arenÂt going to work for everyone, but for time-impoverished peo-ple who like from-scratch meals and those looking to broaden their repertoires, meal kits by mail are likely to be an appetizing option.

Little, Brown. 400 pages. $28. Those who follow the Harry Bosch series know that Bosch has been forced into retire-ment and is fighting the way it was done. Bitter and at loose ends, he needs some-thing to occupy his time and his talents. Wouldn Ât you know it? His half-broth-er, Mickey Haller, flush from the fame brought by a film based on him star-ring Matthew McCo-naughey, has a prop-osition for Harry. Haller believes he has a client who is innocent of the murder charge brought against him. So, what else is new? IsnÂt this what defense lawyers are all about? Well, not really. This is a special case; Haller sus-pects that DaÂQuan Foster has been set up to take the fall for the exceedingly brutal rape and murder of Lexi Parks. A well-known public official, Lexi is married to an LAPD detective. ItÂs a sensitive case, and Haller has no defense. In fact, his regular investigator, who had begun working the case, was seriously injured in a driving mishap. In a preamble, Mr. Connelly reveals that two men, Ellis and Long, and had forced the investigator into oncoming traffic. Bosch is reluctant to get involved in this. To assist Haller would be to betray his decades-old place in the legal system. HeÂd be crossing a line, especially if his task is to help a guilty person get away with a horrible crime. However, Haller, never without a force-ful argument, finds the angle that gets Bosch to at least look into things. Soon, Bosch is hooked. He goes to work for the Lincoln Lawyer (so-named in the first book of the Haller series). As is consistently the case in Mr. Con-nellyÂs work, the step-by-step uncov-ering of information is meticulously and intriguingly presented. Bosch has sharp antennae, well-honed skills, perseverance and clever misdirection in his arsenal. His scrutiny of the LAPD records of this investigation raises questions that demand answers. Security videos in various locations around L.A. raise more questions. BoschÂs competent and cagey interviews move from questions to answers Â„ or suspicions that need further checking. Out of the remarkable mass-ing of details comes the ris-ing suspense that grows in Bosch and is transmitted to the readers. In this case, so much depends upon the history of a luxury wristwatch that had been sent in for repair. It had been given to Lexi, and it bothers Bosch that is has not been accounted for. The situation of the wristwatch is one piece, but a major piece, of the investigatory method. As the author writes: ÂThe job of the investigation is to find the crossing, the place where the circle of the victimÂs life overlaps the circle of the predator.ÂŽ HallerÂs investigator is one victim, the person who is FosterÂs alibi becomes anoth-er, and the owners of the estate sale busi-ness where the watch was purchased also become victims. Perhaps the path of LexiÂs murderer overlapped with the path of those other victims. In BoschÂs mind, someoneÂs path did. The portrayal of his more and more frantic pursuit of crossover clues is simply scintillating. Aside from the intricate and compelling story of the investigation, many other ingre-dients enrich this literary feast. Among them: the sensitive development of the relationship between Bosch and his teenage daughter, Maddie; the masterful descriptions, both physical and atmospher-ic, of Los Angeles neighborhoods; the inner workings of the LAPD, including BoschÂs changed status as a man on the other side of the legal system; and HallerÂs lawyerly savvy and style. Do you like your Bosch on streaming television? The author writes on his website, michaelconnelly.com: ÂDecember 1, 2015. ItÂs a wrap! We finished filming Bosch sea-son two today. We turned Malibu into Italy and finished up with Harry considering the grave of a killer who got away with it. I think we got good stuff and look forward to rolling out 10 new episodes soon!ÂŽ I canÂt wait. Nor can I wait for Michael ConnellyÂs next novel.

Stay the course. The outcome will be well worth your efforts. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The week promises a calmer aspect. Although there might be some lingering effects of a recent job problem, things should continue to ease up. Also expect a change in a home-based situation. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) If you feel uneasy about a colleagueÂs suggestion, it might be that your wise inner Taurean guide is alerting you to a potential problem. Stepping away could turn out to be the right thing to do. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A family get-together opens up new opportunities for renewing ties. It can be especially effective in dealing with disagreements that should have been, but never were, fully resolved. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might be surprised at the response you get to a recent decision. You might be even more surprised by the reasons behind it. In any event, youÂll learn something important. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Your aspects favor resolving any tensions left over from a recent incident. You might want to consider having a Âclear the airÂŽ talk as soon as you can. A call can lead to a change of plans. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Avoid repeating yourself. If your first few efforts fail to connect, maybe itÂs because you havenÂt found the right way to get your message across. Try changing your approach. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Good intentions plus a strong resolve to succeed can take you where you want to go. DonÂt give up just because someone sug-gests you might be pursuing an impossible cause. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) An unexpected setback can be a blessing in disguise. Use it to recheck your facts and how youÂve presented them. Meanwhile, look for ways to expand your contacts. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You should finally be seeing a positive change in a recent personal situ-ation. However, an on-the-job matter might need more attention than you realized. Stay with it. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) While you should be close to completing an important matter, you still need to focus on being focused. But things ease up in time for weekend fun with family and friends. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A certain matter might take an unexpected turn. DonÂt simply accept it; ask for an explanation. What you learn might be helpful in shifting the situation around to your benefit.

YesWhat an inspired, joyful work ÂZootopiaÂŽ is. I tÂs an animated movie colored by a dynamic and diverse city, memorable furry characters and the perfect amount of humor and warmth for audiences young and old to enjoy. ItÂs an absolute delight. No humans appear at any time. This is an animalsÂ world where they live just like we humans do, from parking tickets to smart phones and everything in between. The main character is Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin), an ambi-tious bunny rabbit who wants more than any-thing to be a cop in the big city. Her par-ents (Bonnie Hunt and Don Lake) want her to stay in their agricul-tural small town and be a carrot farmer, but JudyÂs dreams take her to the police depart-ment in Zootopia, a sprawling city of vastly different boroughs (desert, rainforest, cityscape, snowy cold) populated by everything from a tiny arctic shrew to massive African elephants. As a small-town girl in a big city, Judy has growing pains. Police Chief Bogo (Idris Elba), a big Cape buffalo, assigns her to parking ticket duty Â„ even though there are 14 missing mammals and none of her colleagues have made headway with the investigation. Then sheÂs taken advantage of by a sly fox named Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) and is overwhelmed by people telling her to give up on her dreams. But a break in the case for the missing mammals prompts her to blackmail/team up with Nick to find the culprits before Chief Bogo fires her for insubordination. There is genius all over ÂZootopia,ÂŽ but perhaps the most ingenious deci-sion of all was a practical one: Animal characteristics suggest but do not dictate charactersÂ personalities. For example, thereÂs a terrifically funny scene inside a DMV. With human DMVs known for slow service, the filmmakers posit none other than slow-moving sloths as DMV employees, immediately providing adults something to relate to and kids plenty to laugh at as JudyÂs manic energy plays against the slothÂs deliberate pace. Simi-lar references to ÂThe GodfatherÂŽ and ÂBreaking BadÂŽ as well as ÂTargoat,ÂŽ ÂHoof LockerÂŽ and more keep adults engaged throughout. All the while, kids will love every second of the cutesy animals and their behavior, especially an overweight cheetah named Clawhauser (Nate Torrence) and a yak named Yax (Tommy Chong). The filmÂs creation at Disney Animation (not Pixar), which pre-viously gave us ÂBig Hero 6ÂŽ and ÂFrozen,ÂŽ was a team effort to be sure. Eight people are credited with con-tributing to the story, and directing was a three-person opera-tion between Byron Howard, Rich Moore and Jared Bush. In live action, multiple cre-ative forces often lead to a disjointed story; in animation, this type of collaboration is more common, albeit not to this extent. Regardless, it all works, save for one nitpicky portion that conveys racial overtones and the danger of stereotypes that feels forced and unnecessary. Other-wise thereÂs nary a misstep throughout the 108-minute running time, which feels just right. The 3D, especially on an IMAX screen, is bright and immersive. Action scenes are clear and easy to follow, and the ani-mation is crisply detailed right down to the hair on each wolfÂs chinny-chin-chin. The next Oscar ceremony is a year away, but itÂs hard to imagine ÂZootopiaÂŽ not being nominated for Animated Fea-ture. ItÂs thatÂs good.

Same plaza, but now next to True Treasures MaltzÂ’s annual gala raises nearly $785,000 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Maltz Jupiter Theatre Âs annual gala, ÂA Love Affair,ÂŽ raised nearly $785,000 for the not-for-profit theater. More than 400 guests attended the benefit and live auction, held at The Break-ers Palm Beach. Dressed in red gowns, chairman Michele Jacobs and honorary chairman Gil Walsh greeted guests as they arrived. Inspired by the generosity of the theaterÂs supporters and donors through the years, the event treated guests to an evening of entertainment designed to express gratitude. Centerpieces with floating candlelight illuminated the Vene-tian Ballroom, while tables were dressed in a palette of plum and blush and featured sequin-covered lin-ens, overflowing with flowers. Guests in gowns and tuxedos were treated to performances dur-ing dinner that includ-ed an orchestrated journey through the great love songs of past seasons, featuring stars who have previously graced the theaterÂs stage. A group of 70 children from the theaterÂs Goldner Conservatory of Performing Arts performed ÂLove Makes the World Go RoundÂŽ as a mass choir. The evening honored longtime supporter Jane F. Napier, who served as the first grand benefactor of the theaterÂs inaugural gala and has continued to spon-sor the event ever since. She served on the theaterÂs board from 2008 to 2010 and has sponsored numerous fundraising events through the years, given a substantial donation to the theaterÂs endowment and sponsored the 2008-Â09 season production of ÂEvita.ÂŽ She is the exclusive sponsor for the theaterÂs musical ÂThe ProducersÂŽ next January. Following dinner, multiple Carbonell Award winner Matt Loehr serenaded Ms. Napier with a performance of ÂI Want to be a ProducerÂŽ from ÂThe Producers,ÂŽ featuring four showgirls and a chorus of 11 dancing and singing ensemble performers. The evening also included a surprise per-formance for the theaterÂs producing artis-tic director and chief executive Andrew Kato, who recently celebrated his 10th anniversary with the theater; performer Emily Gough sang ÂPure ImaginationÂŽ and founding board member and chairman emeritus Milton Maltz honored Mr. Kato with a speech reflecting on his contributions to the theaterÂs success. The event also featured dancing and a live auction, with pro-ceeds that provided scholarships for 73 local children to attend classes and camps at the theaterÂs conserva-tory during the upcom-ing school year. ÂOur biggest fundraiser of the year stayed true to the the-aterÂs mission of entertaining, educating and inspiring our community,ÂŽ Pamela Dyar, director of development, said in a statement.

The Price: Lunch special of small pizza with soup or salad and beverage is $7.25. The Details: Rest assured that restaurants owned by Mario Scinicariello have served hundreds of thousands of customers since he opened his first in 1969 in North Miami. Heck, his famil yÂs current location, in Royal Palm Beach, no doubt serves tens of thousands each year, who come for Italian comfort fare. Mr. Scinicariello died Feb. 29, but his family has continued his tradition of well-prepared basic fare, like this pizza, served as a lunch special. It had a light, crisp crust, slightly sweet, yet spicy tomato sauce and plenti-ful toppings. The salad we had to accom-pany was composed of Iceberg lettuce, grape tomato, onion and black olives, all chilled and refreshing. It was comforting, and we thought of Mr. Scinicariello and his family. Comfort to them.
