ThatÂs what youÂre going to need to really enjoy everything SunFest 2016 has to offer, so make sure to plan. At least thatÂs the message Executive Director Paul Jamieson has for festivalgoers who attend FloridaÂs annual largest music, art and water-front extravaganza. The festival runs April 27 to May 1 along Flagler Drive in the heart of downtown. ÂWe have really gone out of our way this year to spend more time, SunFest shakes it up 2016 New music from Alabama Shakes. Classic rock from Duran Duran. And new food from star chef Lindsay Autry. INTER VIEW WITH SUNFES T HEADLINER DUR AN DUR AN, B1XNorthern chamber to rebrand itself BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@Â” oridaweekly.comNorthern Palm Beach County has come of age. ThatÂs the message the Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce wants to give April 26, when it unveils its rebranding campaign. The new name, Palm Beach North, will give the region north of West Palm Beach an identity its leaders can market to potential businesses and residents. ÂIt will differentiate us and give us an opportunity to showcase all the key entities in North County,ÂŽ said Michele Jacobs, who chaired the chamberÂs steering committee through the process. Ms. Jacobs knows a thing or two about the key entities of northern Palm Beach County, courtesy of her 8 years as corporate director of marketing for The Forbes Company, which owns The Gardens Mall. She oversees the 1.4 million-square-foot mall, along with Waterside Shops in Naples and The Mall at Millennia in Orlando. But she has a perspective about the area that goes beyond her years in high-end retail. Ms. Jacobs grew up in North Palm Beach Â„ dad was a CPA, mom had a teaching degree Â„ and Ms. Jacobs graduated from Palm Beach Gardens High School. ÂWhen I was growing up, the mall wasnÂt here and I-95 ended at PGA Boulevard, so to see the tremendous amount of growth that has happened over the past 25 years has really been remarkable,ÂŽ she said. Creating the brand offered an opportunity for reflection. ÂGoing through the process of creating a business brand has been great and there has been a lot about northern Palm Beach County that I took for granted.

A multicity tour of the exhi-bition followed after its opening in the Big Apple, made possible by the Nation-al Endowment for the Arts, and many major donors and foundations. West Palm Beach was the last stop on the tour. The show told the story of the organization and its interests, tracing how photography as practiced by its members changed and broadly influenced photog-raphy as an art medium over the groupÂs 15-year lifespan. It featured more than 175 works by the leagueÂs members and other photographers of the same era. As a novice photographer, I was interested in seeing images from the era when documentary photography was still in its infancy. But I was unprepared for the revelations embodied in the focus of the exhibition. It was a visual experience inclusive of a narrative describing how a small group pf trailblazers Â„ idealistic, first generation, mostly Jewish Ameri-cans Â„ forever changed the concept and practice of documentary photography. It was an improbable outcome given the groupÂs departure from political and artis-tic orthodoxy of the day. The group held to the principle that a photograph could inspire social change. Their black and white images depict-ed with stark realism the everyday life among those citizens of New York that conventional wisdom suggested were unworthy of artistic notice Â„ immi-grants, minorities, the poor and the blue-collar workers of the city. With their cameras, they enthusiastically chroni-cled life within these diverse communi-ties, beginning in 1936, when the group was founded, and up to the time of the Cold War. Some of the groupÂs mem-bers were among the countryÂs most notable photographers. Their images broke new ground. They were informed by the groupÂs leftist leanings and vali-dated documentary-style photography with a political purpose as fine art. Their approach attracted controversy. David Gonzales of The New York Times wrote, ÂŽÂƒ the Photo League fell victim to Cold War witch hunts and blacklists, closing its doors after 15 intense years of trailblazing Â„ and sometimes hell-raising Â„ documentary photography. From unabashedly leftist roots, the group influenced a generation of photographers who transformed the documentary tradition, elevating it to heady aesthetic heights.ÂŽ There are photojournalists who continue the tradition, documenting the diversi-ty of the human experience with powerful images. We may not know their names but we know their works, the iconic images we instantly associate with World War II, the Vietnam War era, the Civil Rights era and, more recently, the humanitar-ian crisis created by refugees fleeing the chaos in the Middle East Â„ the drowned body of a 3-year-old child washed up on a beach. We are branded by the memory of these images. With the advent of the digital world, smart phones and new technologies, we have entered the era of Âcaught on cam-era.ÂŽ Video is king. Everyone is a video photographer. Reality is the focus of the content, wherever you can find it and you can find it everywhere, on YouTube, Face-book and hundreds of other photoand video-friendly applications. The person behind the lens puts it out there and the content finds its audience, for good or ill. YouÂre probably one of the 2 million people who viewed a recent video taken in a Starbucks of an irate woman giving Florida Gov. Rick Scott a big piece of her mind. She berated him for his having signed legislation that halts the stateÂs reimbursement of Planned Parenthood for reproductive health services for poor women and that also makes abortions more difficult for women to obtain. It was an inspired if impromptu performance of political theater with a powerful theme. It ended with the governor fleeing the verbal onslaught without his coffee. Not to be outdone, he retaliated with his own Super PAC video, calling her a latte liberal, a public assistance suspect high on caffeine, frittering away her job-less hours, surfing the Internet while he was busy creating a million jobs. If the woman, former Lake Worth City Commissioner Cara Jennings, was overtly rude, the governorÂs response was totally embarrassing. This might be the modern version of the Âradical camera,ÂŽ but sadly, it did not rise to the level of social change. Catherine Evans, curator of photography at OhioÂs Columbus Museum of Art, said of the relevance today of New YorkÂs Photo League, ÂIt was photography for and by the 99 percent. Âƒ Save the hats and coats they wore, the images could have been ripped from current headlines in terms of banks failing and the Great Depression.ÂŽ SheÂs right. The league focused on progressive social change. Documenta-ry-style photography was its means to achieve it, offering classes, sponsoring exhibitions, and building communities among aspiring photographers who were purposeful in their art. The millions of Americans who make up the 99 percent have a story to tell. Where are the radical cameras that tell it? Q Â„ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

The long stretch of seemingly languid liquid Â„ sunrises and sunsets stretching for thousands of years across time and brackish tides, as if nothing ever changed Â„ is really anything but languid, or eter-nal. Instead, itÂs an explosion of fragile but enduring life-force, a coastal garland festooned with phyla, including almost 1,800 species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and mollusks, various invertebrates such as ribbon worms, crus-taceans such as crayfish, crabs, lobsters, and shrimp, moss animals and seemingly countless others, all of them relying on each other and the plants that in turn depend on water clean enough to spend thousands of years inhabiting Â„ some 200 plant species awash in algae or amoe-bas or pro tozo ans such as ciliates, the one-celled heterotrophs, sometimes car-nivorous, that feed on bacteria or algae. ThereÂs another system, more recent, that thrives in this unique American envi-ronment, as well: The economy. They say (by ÂtheyÂŽ I mean the people at the Smithsonian Marine Station in Fort Pierce) that the Indian River Lagoon sup-ports 19,000 jobs, $250 million in annual income, $2 billion per year in the famous Indian river citrus crop, $465 million in income from boating, fishing, water sports, hunting and ecotourism, $140 mil-lion in revenue from commercial fishing, and almost 15 percent of the total harvest of fish and shellfish in the country. And letÂs not forget real estate Â„ some $825 million in revenue, each year, rolls in to somebodyÂs happy hands because people want to live and work along the garland. I was chatting about this the other day with one of the most famous apologists for land and water in the state or the country, Nathaniel Reed. Mr. Reed, whose family founded the community on Jupiter Island, grew up in Florida and continued to raise cows until recently, while serving two presidents, six governors and found-ing a do-gooder outfit of very serious people obviously flawed by their lack of greed, known as 1,000 Friends of Florida. He lives on the southern end of the Indian River Lagoon, near Jupiter, where he can see five miles of wet green and sky blue, the colors of his life and perhaps of his dreams. ÂThis is one of the most beautiful lagoons in the world, a world treasure,ÂŽ he told me. And itÂs going away. Almost a half-century ago, Mr. Reed became a resistor in the struggle to pre-vent such a tragedy by signing on as a pipe-smoking assistant secretary of the interior under President Richard Nixon. He carried on when President Gerald Ford took office and never looked back, jamming the pipe in his mouth, he said, to help himself sometimes shut up. Nowadays, Mr. Reed seems fit to be tied, but not shut up, by two facts: One, the Indian River Lagoon is dying right in front of him, and on his watch, no less. And two, the tool to fix it is lying within reach, but nobody in state government seems to be willing to use it properly. ItÂs called Amendment 1. Voters, about 4 million of them comprising 75 percent of every human who stepped into a voting booth, dropped that little honey right in front of the governor and the state Leg-islature about 18 months ago like a wheel in front of a cave of dim-witted Neolithic humans. There it lies, ready to rock ÂnÂ roll Â„ to provide, on average, more than $700 mil-lion per year for 20 years to buy land and clean water. (All you have to do is buy the damn land along rivers or south of Lake Okeechobee, for example, and let the water wash over it, instead of putting homes or cows or sugar cane or miles of runway or something else on it Â„ the problem is just not that complicated, sug-gests Mr. Reed). But they havenÂt done that. In fact, he told me, theyÂve actively avoided doing that, instead finding ways to siphon off more than half the money, so far, to spe-cial interests.But thatÂs part of a larger neglect that started in 2011 when the governor fired hundreds of state employees who helped regulate polluters, and put officials who have no interest in Mr. ReedÂs vision of Florida on water management boards, in Department of Environmental Protection and Division of Fish and Wildlife man-agement positions, and probably in the 160 or so bathrooms in the state capitol building in Tallahassee, where they can flush anything they want down the toi-lets. Mr. Reed, in the meantime, probably wishes they had sewer systems along the Indian River Lagoon. Or more real-istically, he wishes the state would just inspect the septic systems that homes and businesses already have instead, and bring them up to code. But no, and with catastrophic results.ÂScott removed plans to inspect septic, and in hindsight I donÂt know if it makes a difference, since 80 percent of septics along the Indian River Lagoon are leak-ing. ÂAll of them are sending daily a load of nitrogen into the sands at the end of the pipe, which percolates down and ends up in the Indian River. ÂIt canÂt stand it, and itÂs saying so in a loud, clear message. WeÂre getting these algal blooms. And God, a million fish (dead last winter). Â A million fish. And those fish helped support a million other creatures that help support us. Maybe somebody will pick up the tool and start it rolling. Q rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly Cruz or bustIf the Republican Party is to be saved from Donald Trump, Ted CruzÂs run-away victory in Wisconsin will have been the inflection point. If you thought this service to the GOP would be met with plaudits from the partyÂs insiders, you obviously donÂt know anything about their relationship to the Texas senator. St. Augustine famously prayed, Dear Lord, make me chaste Â„ but not yet. The GOP establishmentÂs prayer is, Dear Lord, deliver us from Donald Trump Â„ but not with Ted Cruz. The increasing likelihood of a contested convention in Cleveland has led to chatter about turning to a white knight who has the advantage of being neither Trump nor Cruz. This talk has all the hallmarks of a psychological mechanism for GOP insiders to avoid acknowledging their dependence on Cruz, who is all that is standing between the party and what might be an epic Trump-led meltdown. A convention could Â„ and should Â„ deny Trump the nomination, but it wonÂt be easy. There will be a perceived legitimacy problem in denying the top prize to the top vote-getter. This would obviously be magnified if a convention disregards both the firstand second-place finishers. And for what? Electability? The only meaningful road test for a presidential candidate is running for president. Cruz has proved adept at it. He correctly read the mood of the Republican electorate and adjusted to Trump more skillfully than anyone else (not without some cringe-inducing moments). If Paul Ryan had run this year, in all likelihood he would have gotten chewed up and spat out like anyone else associ-ated with the establishment. Who else? Mitt Romney? He had his chance. A gov-ernor? The plausible ones already ran. A senator? Ditto. While it is true that people in Washington tend to loathe Cruz, a convention wouldnÂt be a Senate Republican policy lunch. It would be stocked with Repub-lican activists from around the country who have no firsthand knowledge of what Cruz did to so irk his colleagues, and probably donÂt care. All that said, it is possible to imagine a white-knight scenario, but only in a convention deadlock that might descend to South Korean-parliament levels of ugliness. The best, cleanest non-Trump scenario is that Cruz has the strength to win on an early ballot, and his anti-establishment credentials make a revolt by the Trump forces less potent. In short, the only reasonable alternative to Trump is Cruz. This is the conclusion that Scott Walker and other conservative leaders in Wisconsin came to, and they backed Cruz to the hilt. Republicans around the country who care about the integrity of their party and its electoral chances should do the same. Of course, Cruz would be an underdog against Hillary Clinton, but the man with the biggest media megaphone on the planet has been calling him a liar and a Canadian for months, and he trails Clinton by only 3 points in the Real-ClearPolitics average. Trump and Cruz have both won states around the country and millions of votes, and engendered intense fol-lowings. There is no getting around that they are the choice confronting the party. ItÂs time to put away childish things, and pick sides. Q Â„ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Thriller or mystery? Talking cat or working dog? Whatever your poison in literary murder and mayhem, thereÂs a book for you. And chances are good that a dog or cat is a character in his own right, either as a four-footed detective or as a sidekick to a human protagonist. Think Lilian Jackson BraunÂs Siamese sleuths Koko and Yum Yum, who first made an appearance some 50 years ago; or feline Mrs. Murphy, her Persian nemesis Pewter and their corgi buddy Tee Tucker in the Mrs. Murphy series by Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie Brown. Editors and agents used to tell authors that a Âpet viewpointÂŽ worked only for childrenÂs books, but from Braun on, writ-ers have proven them wrong. ÂIt takes having a well-known and successful ÂnameÂ author to take the plunge and show itÂs something readers like before it becomes a trend,ÂŽ says Amy Shojai, author of three thrillers featuring German shepherd service dog Shadow. ÂJames Rol-lins (a veterinarian-turned-writer) was one of the first best-selling thriller authors to include an animal viewpoint in his work, with a war dog partnered with an ex-military man. Robert Crais followed with a similar war dog-type character partnered with a damaged-cop character.ÂŽIn her own series, Ms. Shojai, drawing on her background as a behavior consul-tant, wanted a viewpoint dog character with some chapters told from his per-spective.ÂNot as a human-in-a-fur-suit, but as I perceived a dog might truly think and behave and with motivations suitable to a canine,ÂŽ she says. Ms. ShojaiÂs fellow author Clea Simon has written 20 mysteries, all featuring cats. Ms. Simon began her career as a journalist, and along the way she realized she could combine her love of writing with her inter-est in and appreciation for cats. Her third nonfiction book, ÂThe Feline Mystique,ÂŽ explored the relationship between women and cats. ÂThat was sort of the kickoff for my catrelated mysteries,ÂŽ she says. At first, Ms. Simon went the traditional route. In her first series, featuring music journalist Theda Krakow and her cat Musetta, cats didnÂt talk Â„ at least, not in English. ÂBut after that, I realized that we all talk to our pets, and we all imagine how our animals respond,ÂŽ she says. That led her to explore different ways of including a catÂs viewpoint. One is her Dulcie Schwartz mystery series, which lead with the information that the charac-terÂs cat, Mr. Gray, has died. He returns to her as a friendly ghost who is a comforting and wise presence. Ms. SimonÂs newest mystery, ÂThe Ninth Life,ÂŽ is narrated by a feral black cat that is saved from drowning by a homeless girl. ItÂs a dark tale with a mean-streets vibe, a transition from the cozy, amateur-sleuth territory of her first books. In both instanc-es, Ms. Simon explores her interest in the relationship between people and cats. If you read Ms. Shojai or Ms. Simon Â„ or other authors who include animals in their plots Â„ itÂs not unusual to find arcana about dog shows, training or animal behavior. Many writers find their work to be a way of delving into some of the issues or controversies surrounding animals. Ms. Shojai covered dog fighting in her latest, ÂShow and Tell,ÂŽ and Ms. Simon addressed animal hoarding in ÂMew Is for MurderÂŽ and puppy and kitten mills in ÂCattery Row.ÂŽ ÂOne of the rules I live by, though, is that I could never seriously hurt or kill an animal in a book,ÂŽ Ms. Simon says. Ms. Shojai is on the same page.ÂI donÂt write dog abuse scenes,ÂŽ she says. Instead, she highlights the setting, fight paraphernalia and laws and issues surrounding the crime. WhatÂs the pleasure in reading a mystery with purr-sonality or canine charisma? ÂI think mysteries that feature or involve animals mirror real life,ÂŽ Ms. Shojai says. ÂReaders identify with the hero of the book who cares deeply about a pet.ÂŽ Q Pets of the Week>> Ophelia is an athletic 5-year-old, 52-pound female mixed breed dog that loves to run and enjoys going for walks.

Community leaders came together in what she describes as a labor of love for the chamber, which serves businesses in Palm Beach Gardens, Riviera Beach, Juno Beach, Jupiter, Jupiter Inlet Colony, Lake Park, Mangonia Park, Palm Beach Shores, North Palm Beach and Tequesta. ÂWe have so many different partners come together between all 10 municipalities and private industry to participate in this process. ThatÂs a really unique thing and it also speaks to the quality of the people who live here and who are engaged in our community,ÂŽ Ms. Jacobs said, citing facts she learned about the areaÂs proximity to the Gulf Stream and work that has begun to transform the Riviera Beach waterfront. ÂNaturally, I knew about golf and that there is a high-level marine industry. But we also have so many other incredible indus-tries. We have the biosciences and the aero-space industries,ÂŽ she said, citing Scripps Florida, Max Planck and Pratt & Whitney. Healthcare has come a long way, too, with full-service hospitals that include Palm Beach Gardens and Jupiter medical centers, plus JFK North, the Nicklaus ChildrenÂs Hospital at Jupiter Medical Center and out-posts of the Cleveland Clinic and Bascom Palmer Eye Institute. ÂYou donÂt have to go to Miami for healthcare anymore,ÂŽ she said. The Loggerhead Marinelife Center, Lighthouse ArtCenter, Eissey Campus Theatre and the Maltz Jupiter Theatre round out cultural offerings. ThereÂs something else.ÂWhat I think thatÂs unique is that everyone pulls together for the community,ÂŽ Ms. Jacobs said. And they keep coming back.ÂYou think about all these people who have left, spread their wings and come back, it points to the quality of life here,ÂŽ she said. ItÂs all about sustainability.ÂI think thereÂs a feeling on the committee that theyÂre the stewards of North County. For example, I donÂt want my son living in Atlanta because he canÂt get a job in the area,ÂŽ said public relations executive Enid Atwater, whose family came to North Palm Beach in the early Â60s. Four of the six children in her family, which includes State CFO Jeff Atwater, still call the area home. ÂYou attract the right businesses and there are jobs because youÂve attracted new business sectors to the area with more career opportunities for the next genera-tion,ÂŽ she said. Ms. Jacobs remembered when she first returned to the area to manage Saks Fifth Avenue at The Gardens. It was March 2005. ÂAt that point in time, the housing market was so strong, we were in this bubble and it was growth overload up here,ÂŽ she said. ÂI think Palm Beach Gardens did a really good job of managing the growth. It was very thoughtful.ÂŽ ItÂs proven to be a draw for community leaders. Verdenia Baker, Palm Beach County administrator, lives in northern Palm Beach County. So does Rena Blades, who heads the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. ÂThis is a community now that has something to offer everyone, and I think itÂs because everybody cares about it and thatÂs why weÂre now at this point,ÂŽ Ms. Jacobs said.

attention and money on national-level opening acts that are new and great,ÂŽ Jamieson said. ÂTake time to listen to stuff you normally wouldnÂt listen to. And give our food a try. We revamped everything in the main food court and the way we are presenting our menu. You will see how different it really is.ÂŽ In truth, thereÂs always too much great music to enjoy, too much cool art to view and too many tasty dishes to sample to experience SunFest on the quick. So plan your days, take your time, and have a blast. ÂWe are very excited about this yearÂs lineup,ÂŽ Mr. Jamieson said. ÂWe have a great mix, featur-ing todayÂs hottest acts alongside leg-endary perform-ers. The music festival market-place has been growing over the past few years, but we know, as do our fans know Â„ there is no better place to enjoy music than along the waterfront in West Palm Beach.ÂŽ National headliners include musical acts like Duran Duran, Alabama Shakes, Meghan Traynor, Jason Derulo and Rick Springfield, to name a few. And iconic bands like Duran Duran, like them or not, stir up strong feelings of nostalgia. ÂA band like Duran Duran was huge during a certain era and reminds people of their college days. We all have songs that take us back to a time in our lives,ÂŽ Jamieson said. ÂI think Duran Duran does that for a lot of people.ÂŽ He figures the crowd seeking out Duran Duran will skew a bit older and the crowd seeking out Meghan Traynor will skew a bit younger, but he is certain there will also be a lot of overlap. ÂYoung peopleÂs taste in music today is very broad and they like to listen to all types of music,ÂŽ he noted. ÂI know people in their 50s who would much rather see Meghan Traynor than Duran Duran.ÂŽ Now get hungry.Traditional festival eats have been overhauled to include specialties like Nashville Hot Chicken and Chicken-Fried Waffles in addition to long-time favorites like Pineapple Chicken and Island Noodles. Mr. JamiesonÂs advice: Pace yourself. ThereÂs a lot to see, taste and do. Approximately 175,000 people attended the five-day festival last year and about the same are expected this year. Attendance has continuously spiraled upwards for the past four or five years, Mr. Jamieson added. SunFest 2016 has upped its food game this year by part-nering with Lind-say Autry, execu-tive chef of the upcoming down-town restaurant The Regional. And her experience with the Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival has added a pol-ish that is bound to give the festi-val a new shine. The result? A completely redesigned food court called ÂThe EateryÂŽ with a new look and feel, and lots of trendy dishes. ÂWe changed the area where all the concessions are ... to be a little more modern and a little more colorful,ÂŽ Ms. Autry said. ÂAs far as the food goes, we wanted to bring in some trendier elements and we also have some healthier options such as gluten-free pizza. It is a reality that a good percentage of our society is gluten intolerant or have celiacÂs (disease).ÂŽ Foodies looking for something different can sample Nashville Hot Chicken Â„ a spicy fried dish served with pickles, or munch on chicken-fried waffles (fried chicken inside a waffle). Sunday festival-goers can silence growling stomachs with the ÂSunday Funday,ÂŽ a hashbrown waffle loaded with bacon, sour cream and chives, or smothered in sweet maple syrup with bacon. Both are yummy, Ms. Autry said.ÂItÂs fun. You want to just try something and have a bite here or there,ÂŽ Ms. Autry said. And donÂt forget the art, always a staple of SunFest and always a big crowd pleaser, even though SunFest offers up a very different sort of art experience than most traditional juried shows. ÂVirtually every other art show begins in late morning and ends in the evening,ÂŽ Mr. Jamieson said. ÂBut SunFest is primarily a music festival that goes late into the night and the artists have to stay at their booths longer than they do at other art shows. Some art-ists donÂt like it and some artists love it because they get an audience that never comes to other art shows.ÂŽ Jupiter artist April Davis said the nontradition-al atmosphere is why sheÂs been exhibiting at Sun-Fest for about a dozen years. ÂYou get whole different groups of people who arenÂt exposed to your art through shows,ÂŽ said Ms. Davis, who has become known for her brilliant tropical landscapes, seascapes and cityscapes. ÂYou have to grab their atten-tion while they are walking from one place to another in terms of what prod-uct you have and what your display looks like.ÂŽ Q SUNFESTFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOAbout 175,000 people attended SunFest last year; about the same number is expected at the music festival, which takes place along the downtown West Palm Beach waterfront.

Where does SunFestÂ’s chief hang during the show? ÂNothing is more exciting than live music, and when a performer is on and the crowd is into it, itÂs the kind of vibe you canÂt experience anywhere else.ÂŽ Â„ Paul Jamieson, executive director of SunFest Mr. Jamieson, who has been organizing the huge, waterfront music festival for 20 years, is a firm believer that the multifaceted event has something for everyone. But to really experience the five-day extravaganza, he believes fes-tivalgoers need to stop and smell the roses, so to speak. ÂWe all take it for granted because itÂs here. But itÂs a pretty special thing. I could argue that you need to spend a few days,ÂŽ Mr. Jamieson said. ÂPart of not rushing is not trying to experience it all in one day. The kind of people who enjoy SunFest most are people who are open to enjoying music they would not normally listen to.ÂŽ Mr. Jamieson admits he has an advantage because he isnÂt limited to the same confines as regular ticket holders. But he does have some favorite hangouts, which he shared with Florida Weekly. Among them? The berm on the east side of the Meyer Amphitheatre, an espe-cially good choice when the heat of the day gets wicked. ÂDuring the day on Saturday and Sunday, seek out the shade and donÂt be afraid to rest,ÂŽ Jamieson said. ÂThe berm ... is a great place to sit and rest and watch the world go by. Take a little rest, listen to some music. We all know SunFest is a great place for people-watching.ÂŽ Looking to sip a cool drink on the water and beat the crowds? Mr. Jamieson suggests visiting the Captain Morgan Floating Oasis and stopping by at the south barge, known for its floating tiki lounge, tropical drinks and fun music. ÂThe north barge is with our radio partner ESPN, a sports bar where people go to watch the games. The middle barge is really a club, where they are dancing and carrying on into the night. The south barge is generally a little more mellow. That is where I would go,ÂŽ Mr. Jamieson said. But music is what SunFest is really about and Mr. Jamieson canÂt wait for performers to take the stage. He is espe-cially interested in seeing Jason Derulo perform on Thursday, The Roots on Sat-urday afternoon and Scott BradleeÂs Post Modern Jukebox on Sunday. Of Jason Derulo: ÂI heard he puts on a great show.ÂŽ Of The Roots: ÂI think they are supertalented and to see them live, you are just going to get a great show. We put Salt N Pepa with them which I think is just fun.ÂŽ Of Scott BradleeÂs Post Modern Jukebox: ÂI kind of have a rule when I book bands to never book a band you have to explain but (this band) is so cool Â„ they take music and rearrange it in the style of 1940s swing bands. Some of it is jazzy and some of it is bluesy. ItÂs something you never see.ÂŽ As far as festival food, Mr. Jamieson didnÂt name a favorite dish but said he is thrilled with the revamped menu and dining area. ÂThere are a lot of people who havenÂt tried the food inside the festival for a long time and I think they will be pleas-antly surprised,ÂŽ he said.

Florida wage gap costs women nearly $17 billion annually, study findsOn average, Florida women employed full time, year round are paid just 85 cents for every dollar paid to men Â„ a yearly pay gap of $6,203. That means, in total, women in Florida lose nearly $17 billion every year, which is money that could strengthen the state economy and the financial security of FloridaÂs women and families, including the near-ly 960,000 Florida households headed by women. These are some of the find-ings of a new analysis conducted by the National Partnership for Women & Families and released for Equal Pay Day, which was April 12. The analysis spans all 50 states, all 435 congressional districts in the coun-try, and the District of Columbia. It can be found at NationalPartnership.org/Gap. The full set of findings for Flori-da is included. These findings include that, for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men in Florida, African American women, Latinas and Asian women who work full time, year round are paid 61 cents, 59 cents and 74 cents, respectively. ÂThis analysis is a sobering reminder of the serious harm the wage gap causes women and families all across the coun-try,ÂŽ said Debra L. Ness, president of the National Partnership. ÂAt a time when womenÂs wages are so critical to the economic well-being of families, the country is counting on lawmakers to work together to advance the fair and family friendly workplace policies that would promote equal pay. There is no time to waste.ÂŽ According to the new analysis, if the gap between womenÂs and menÂs wages in Florida were eliminated, each woman who holds a full-time, year-round job in the state could afford to buy food for one more year, pay for mortgage and utilities for five more months, or pay rent for more than six additional months. Basic necessities such as these would be particularly important for the 29 percent of FloridaÂs woman-headed households currently living below the poverty level. Florida is not the only state with a wage gap. In fact, every state and 98 percent of the countryÂs congressional districts have one. The National Part-nershipÂs national analysis finds that the 10 states with the largest cents-on-the-dollar wage gaps in the country Â„ from largest to smallest Â„ are Louisiana, Utah, Wyoming, West Virginia, North Dakota, Alabama, Idaho, Oklahoma, Montana and Michigan. A ranking of all 50 states and the District of Columbia can be found here. Nationally, women who are employed full time, year round are paid, on aver-age, 79 cents for every dollar paid to men. The gap is larger for African-American women and Latinas, who are paid 60 cents and 55 cents, respectively, for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men. For Asian women in the United States, the gap is smaller but persists. On average, Asian women are paid 84 cents for every dollar paid to white, non-Hispanic men, although some eth-nic subgroups fare much worse. ÂIt is unacceptable that the wage gap has persisted, punishing the countryÂs women and families for decades,ÂŽ Ness continued. ÂSome state lawmakers have taken steps to address the issue by pass-ing legislation to combat discriminatory pay practices and provide other work-place supports. It is past time for fed-eral lawmakers to do the same. We need Congress to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act, which is a common sense proposal that has languished for much too long.ÂŽ Currently before Congress, the Paycheck Fairness Act would close loop-holes in the Equal Pay Act, help to break patterns of pay discrimination, and establish stronger workplace pro-tections for women. The National Part-nership argues that the bill, along with other supportive policies Â„ such as paid sick days, paid family and medical leave, minimum wage increases, fair scheduling and protections for pregnant workers Â„ are what is needed to close the gap and should be top priorities for lawmakers. Equal Pay Day marks how far into the new year women must work in order to catch up with what men were paid the year before. The analysis uses data from the U.S. Census Bureau. The findings for each state, along with state rankings, are available at NationalPartnership.org/Gap. Q SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________ Modified ketogenic diet slows growth of cancer tumors in research mice THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAUniversity of Florida researchers have slowed a notoriously aggressive type of brain tumor in mouse models by using a low-carbohydrate diet. A high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that included a coconut oil derivative helped reduce the growth of glioblastoma tumor cells and extended lifespan in mouse models by 50 percent, researchers found. The results were published recently in the journal Clinical Cancer Research. Glioblastoma, the most common brain tumor in adults, has no effective long-term treatment; on average, patients live for 12-15 months after diagnosis, according to the National Cancer Institute. The findings are a new twist on an old idea: The so-called ketogenic diet has been used for nearly 90 years to help reduce epileptic seizures. Now, a high-fat, low-car-bohydrate version of the ketogenic diet has been shown to slow glioblastoma tumors by cutting back on the energy supply they need to thrive, said Brent Reynolds, Ph.D., a professor in the Lillian S. Wells Department of Neurosurgery at UF. A glioblastoma tumor requires large amounts of energy as it grows, and the dietary intervention works by drastically limiting the tumorÂs supply of glucose, Mr. Reynolds said. ÂWhile this is an effective treatment in our preclinical animal models, it is not a cure. However, our results are promising enough that the next step is to test this in humans,ÂŽ he added. The modified diet used in the test included a coconut oil derivative known as a medi-um-chain triglyceride, which plays a crucial role because it replaces some carbohydrates as an energy source. Mr. Reynolds said the modified highfat, low-carbohydrate diet also has another distinct advantage: Cancer patients could potentially find it more palatable because they can eat more carbohydrates and pro-tein than they could on a classic ketogenic diet. ÂWhen youÂre sick, you need as many comforts in your life as you can get, and food is a huge comfort. ThatÂs the idea: Could we develop a beneficial diet but make it much easier for patients?ÂŽ Using human-derived glioblastoma cells in a mouse model, researchers found that the modified high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet increased life expec-tancy by 50 percent while also reducing tumor progression by a similar amount. In addition to diminishing the tumorÂs energy supply, the diet slowed the growth of glio-blastoma cells by altering a cellular-signaling pathway that commonly occurs in cancers, according to the researchers. The modified diet provided just 10 percent of its calories from carbohydrates, compared with 55 per-cent of calories from carbohydrates in a control group. While both the ketogenic and modified high-fat, low-carbohydrate diets showed similar effectiveness against tumors in the mouse models, Mr. Reynolds said, the latter is more nutritionally complete and potential-ly more appealing to cancer patients because it offers more food choices. Although researchers donÂt yet know exactly why it was effective, Mr. Reynolds said preliminary data show that the modi-fied diet also appears to make glioblastoma tumors more sensitive to treatment with radiation and chemotherapy. He sees the diet as a supplemental therapy that could complement chemotherapy and radiation. While more research is needed, the diet could also be a potentially effective second-ary treatment for other cancers, such as those affecting the breast, lung and pancreas, he said. ÂThis simple dietary approach may be able to reduce tumor progression and enhance standard of care treatments in can-cers that are highly metabolically active,ÂŽ he said. Next, he wants to start testing the modified high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet in a clinical trial. It typically takes many years to initiate such trials because of the stringent safety testing that must be done before testing in humans begins, but he said it might be pos-sible to move faster because the therapy only involves modifying a patientÂs dietary intake and supplementing with a medium-chain tri-glyceride oil, both of which have no known side effects. Funding for the research was provided by the Evelyn F. and William L. McKnight Brain Institute of the University of Florida, UFÂs Lillian S. Wells Department of Neuro-surgery, the Florida Center for Brain Tumor Research, the National Brain Tumor Society, the National Institutes of Health and the American Cancer Society. Q REYNOLDS

Or in the case of Palm Beach County, is still coming and going, also swiftly. ÂWe are aiming for an Âendless season,Â by implementing strategic marketing campaigns in our target markets to build and maintain strong destination aware-ness Â„ especially during the summer months,ÂŽ says Ashley Svarney, director of public relations and communication for Discover the Palm Beaches, the official tourism marketing corporation for Palm Beach County. ÂSince December, the Palm Beaches have already added 600 hotel rooms to its diverse hotel inventory, including the new Hilton West Palm Beach conven-tion center hotel, and weÂre expecting a total of 1,000 new hotel rooms to be added by the end of 2016. January and February were both positive in terms of room nights sold, and weÂre cautiously optimistic about the tourism outlook for 2016 and 2017.ÂŽ Such reports are pleasing, but so are good numbers: Bed taxes, for example. Hotel occupancy rates, head counts. Those indicators on both the east and west coasts of the Sunshine State faced several unpredictable factors during sea-son this year, and in January and Febru-ary appeared flattened when compared to the previous yearÂs figures for the same month, on the west coast. ÂWe were down slightly in January and February in terms of occupancy and visitation Â„ January was very rainy for us and a mild winter in the north, which may have influenced this,ÂŽ says JoNell Modys, spokeswoman for the Naples, Marco Island, Everglades Convention & VisitorÂs Bureau. ÂBut our 2015 was so strong that a slight drop is no cause for concern. There wasnÂt much room for growth over what happened in 2015. In Febru-ary of 2015, our occupancy rate was 94 percent, and this year it was 89.1 percent. Our research consultant attributed that to a slight economic softening. You also have to take into account that our aver-age daily room rate was higher in 2016 Â„ $353 was the average daily rate in Feb-ruary this year.ÂŽ A milder winter in the north Â„ a polar vortex, as one called it Â„ may have influenced a slight drop in hotel occu-pancy rates in Lee County in January and February, too, but bed taxes in Lee were up from last yearÂs, says Tamara Pigott, executive director of The Beaches at Fort Myers & Sanibel, part of the Lee Visitor & Convention Bureau. There was also the falling Canadian dollar, dirty water flooding downstream from Lake Okeechobee to affect beaches and tourists on both the Gulf and Atlan-tic coasts, and Âthe challenge of the Euro to the dollar, although the Germans donÂt seem to be backing off,ÂŽ Ms. Pigott notes. She just returned in March from a week-long conference in Berlin where tourism marketers from all over the world competed, Âmaking you realize youÂre just a small spec on the planet.ÂŽ Cultivating the German market is particularly important in Lee County for two reasons, she says: one, about half of all German visitors to the state come to Lee County Â„ about 270,000 per year, or 9 percent of total visitors, nowadays. And two, those European visitors have changed the picture of season, since many of them come in August and Sep-tember, boosting the out-of-season resi-dency rates to within about 20 percent of the in-season rates. ThatÂs a far cry from the days when county populations on the coasts could drop by half, out of season, and many businesses closed for the duration. Collier and Charlotte counties benefit from those visits, too, says Lorah Steiner, Charlo tteÂs t ourism director, who acknowledges that counties com-pete against each other at home, but they compliment each other in over-seas recruitments of tourists and visitors, some of whom end up buying homes or even kicking off businesses here. ÂWeÂre putting a lot more emphasis on (German and international) travelers,ÂŽ she says. ÂThey may stay in one county, but theyÂll visit others.ÂŽ The figures she watches to determine visitor health are called RevPAR, she says.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2016 BUSINESS A15 MONEY & INVESTINGPrice of gold up 16 percent this year, but invest cautiouslyIf there is one commodity that I should know the most about, it is gold. After all, I now own an estate jewelry company, so I deal with the precious metal every single hour of every day. Yet if you ask me what price movement in the financial markets has sur-prised me the most in 2016, it is gold. At the end of last year, I was certain that gold prices would continue to fall as they did throughout most of 2015 and we would be definitely under $1,000 per ounce right now. But instead, gold pric-es are up 16 percent this year, with many betting that they may head even higher. So what has caused this change in gold sentiment and what does the future look like for this metal? The end of 2015 looked bleak for gold prices. First, the Fed raised interest rates for the first time in almost 10 years and most analysts believed that the Fed would continue to raise rates in 2016. Higher rates are negative for gold prices because the opportunity costs of holding gold increase. Second, both the U.S. and most other global economies looked to be on solid financial footings at the end of last year. Many people buy gold as a safe haven when other invest-ments turn south, and sell the metal when the financial markets are bullish. And finally, central banks across the globe were talking of pulling back the massive stimulus programs that were put in place during the financial crisis. This again lessened the potential for sig-nificant inflation and monetary growth, two scenarios that people buy gold to hedge against. Unfortunately for gold bugs, 2016 saw a total reversal of many of these phenomena. Many emerging markets, notably China, saw their growth rates plummet. This resulted in significant volatility in financial markets and sig-nificant new stimulus programs from many central banks. Some banks even pushed interest rates into negative ter-ritory. This had the duel effect of both increasing global inflation fears and making gold a safe place for investors to park their money. Here in the U.S., global economic uncertainty, a falling stock market and plummeting oil prices all contributed to the Fed pausing further rate increases. All of these events contributed to goldÂs rise this year. So what can we expect gold to do in the second half of 2016? Investors are clearly betting on continued strength in the gold market as the number of bullish option and future price contracts are at four-year highs right now. And it is not just gold that is seeing a huge investor demand. Silver and plati-num ETFs, options and futures are all seeing record interest levels. But I would caution people from rushing into precious metal investments. It is somewhat ironic, but the ease at which investors can now buy and sell gold (mainly through the GLD ETF) has made it potentially more hazardous to invest in the metal. GLD is highly liq-uid, making it a great momentum trade for hedge funds who trade in and out very quickly. This has made massive price swings in gold very common. And investing in gold mining stocks presents its own challenges as investors worry about labor issues, mine safety, political events and specific mine problems.Despite all of these issues, gold can be a beneficial part of a diversified portfolio. It is an insurance policy against inflation or geopolitical events or wild swings in financial markets. Q Â„ Eric Bretan, the co-owner of RickÂs Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda, was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. eric BRETANestaterick@gmail.com or RevPAR. ÂSo if you have 100 rooms, itÂs how much per room youÂre averaging,ÂŽ she explains. ÂIf you start to see RevPAR increasing, itÂs a no brainer. ItÂs means people are willing to pay more or stay longer. ÂBut when you see numbers decline itÂs an indicator people are tightening purse strings. It can also mean that people might not be willing to spend as freely as before. ÂSo, weÂre watching, and ours has been a little flat for a couple of months, but itÂs nothing to worry about. If we see a decline over three or four months, we get concerned about it.ÂŽ While many factors may have contributed to the early winter flattening of markets, none appear to be deeply wor-risome, officials say, especially after four or five years of growth and a stellar 2015. And politics in this very unpredictable election year, which can also lead to caution and reduced spending? Fuhgeta-boutit. ÂI donÂt think anybody has been hit with primary-itis,ÂŽ suggests Laurel Baker, executive director at the Palm Beach Chamber of Commerce. On the other hand, she adds, ÂIt has not been as over the top as last year, here, either.ÂŽ It may be hard to beat increases in visitors to Palm Beach County from 6.3 million in 2014 to 6.9 million last year, but there should be some growth, especially since the numbers of Canadian visitors are holding steady. ÂWe prepared ourselves mentally for a downturn (after Canadian dollar fell on hard times), but it never came,ÂŽ she says. Q SUNFrom page 1

In the 1980s, the transformed look often was created with a layer of white paint encouraged to peel to look old. Today the industrial look is Âin,ÂŽ and shows have old workbenches, indus-trial tools attached to wooden tables, lamps made of old gears and gym lockers stripped of their original paint. All have been given a modern look by exposing the original silvery finish of the metal parts. InCollect, the upscale website that sells expensive antiques, offered a long rectangular desk with a polished aluminum finish. The desk had been used during World War II. It is made of the aluminum used in airplanes in the 1930s and Â40s. It was originally painted green (some of the paint is left in a drawer as a part of its history). The desk was hand stripped and polished for about 80 hours. It is more than a desk Â„ it can fold into a box to be moved, which was a wartime necessity. Look at some of the used metal furniture selling for offices or workshops, or scrap metal that can be changed in a do-it-yourself project into unique ÂmodernÂŽ furniture. Q: I got a Casige toy sewing machine for Christmas in the late 1940s or early Â50s. ItÂs in excellent condition with the original box. It was made in West Germany. Is this of any value other than sentimental? A: Casige made toy sewing machines from 1902 until 1975. The company was founded in 1852 by Carl Sieper of Gevels-berg, Germany. It originally made locks for pianos and other furniture. The name of the company came from the combination of the first two letters of his first and last names and the town. His grandson, Carl Sieper II, began making small sewing machines for schools in 1902. Eighty-three models were made between 1902 and 1975. Sewing machines marked ÂWest GermanyÂŽ were made between 1949 and 1975. The value of your toy sewing machine is about $50. Q: Are old books of any value? I have a copy of ÂAesopÂs FablesÂŽ translated from the Greek by the Rev. Geo. Fyler Townsend and published by George Routledge and Sons. The cover looks like leather and has two color pictures of children and drawings of leaves. A: Some old books are valuable, but it takes an expert to appraise them. The fables were first told about 600 BC and didnÂt appear in print until 1557. Several editions of the version translated by Reverend George Fyler Townsend (1814-1900) were published in the late 1800s. They sell online for about only $12 and up. If you want to sell your copy, you can take it to a store that sells used books. Q: My grandchild is named Sarah, a nice old-fashioned name. I wanted to buy an antique childÂs cup with her name on it, but after looking at antiques shows for months, I have found lots of other names. Was a ÂSarahÂŽ cup made in the 1800s? A: Mugs and small plates for children were popular in England but not in America during the 19th century. Many ceramic facto-ries made them. Some were decorated with names like Hannah, Louisa, Sophie Â„ and yes, Sarah. But childrenÂs tablewares also had sayings like ÂA Birth Day Gift,ÂŽ ÂFor my dear boy,ÂŽ ÂFor a good girlÂŽ or other phrases so the mugs could be given as rewards or gifts. Pictures from childrenÂs books, educational decorations like the alphabet or pictures and names of animals also were popular. Some had messages like ÂMake hay while the sun shines.ÂŽ The cups helped children learn manners and moral character. You might be lucky enough to find Sarah through an Internet search, but the odds are against you. Q: I have an old typewriter made by a company called Blickensderfer of Stamford, Conn. On the side of the frame is a shield with patent numbers from July 15, 1890 to April 12, 1892. The typewriterÂs letters and numbers are on a cylinder that rotates to the desired key when pressed. Is this of value? Is there a market for something like this? A: In 1891 George Blickensderfer invented a small portable writing machine that used a cylinder instead of striker keys to print letters. It had a keyboard, but the order of letters was different from the ÂQWERTYÂŽ keyboard used today. The machine was lighter, less expensive and designed to avoid the key Âhang upÂŽ of other typewriters. The user could change type styles by changing the cylinder without using a tool. The idea was similar to the IBM Selectric, which came along almost 75 years later. The first models were probably made in very limited numbers since none have been found. The Model 5, nicknamed the ÂBlick,ÂŽ was intro-duced at the Columbian Exposition in 1893 and was made for many years. Later models were deluxe versions of that design, though QWERTY keyboards became available. BlickenderferÂs company was successful, but he was hit by a car and died in New York City in 1917. Attempts to run his company failed and the company went bankrupt. In 1927, Remington bought the inventory and the intellectual rights and introduced the Rem-Blick, which was similar to the Blick 5. Blickensderfer typewriters sell between $300 and $400. Tip: If there are raised applied decorations on your art glass, be careful when cleaning it. Gold or silver accents, painted enamel decoration and beads must be kept in fine condition to maintain the value. Q Â„ Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

We know better, and so does Buick. It only takes a frozen winter to change our stateÂs stodgy image, but a car com-pany needs to be a bit more proactive. ThatÂs why the new Cascada is a car we want to love. A convertible is a great way to be both mature and exciting at the same time Â„ something thatÂs good for Florida and needed at Buick. The exterior hit its mark quite well. This is not much more than a European Opel with a Buick badge. In fact, most of BuickÂs best vehicles come from the German arm of General Motors. What the Opel connection does is give the Cascada a distinctive front end with crisp lines, something not shared with any other brand in the U.S. Inside there are more benefits from the relationship with Opel. Materials on the center console feel like nice quality pieces, and the backup camera provides some of the best detail on the market. The layout is Germanic, allowing for very precise control over everyday fea-tures such as climate control. Overall the presentation is a bit aged, however, as Opel has been offering this design for nearly a decade. So when it came time to insert for updates like a touchscreen infotainment system, it seems a little awkwardly placed, and there are leftover b uttons w hen the space on the dash was just a display screen. The operation of the droptop is simple and quite nice: It takes one switch and less than 20 seconds to go from completely enclosed to ÂHello, world!ÂŽ ItÂs so quick and easy, the decision to let the sunshine in can be made and executed at a stoplight and without ever leaving the driverÂs seat.On the road, the Cascada canÂt help but feel very mature. The only motor available across the lineup is a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 200 hp. A low displacement, large turbo powerplant is usually the key ingredi-ent for hijinks, but not here. Creating a convertible means adding some serious metal to the body to ensure the strength thatÂs usually provided by a fixed roof. The extra weight is actually a bit of good news on the road, because it gives the convertible a feeling of a substantial car that doesnÂt get blown around in the wind.Where this mass doesnÂt help is with power and economy. The motor feels good for all occasions, including the highway, but it will never have that rush of acceleration often associated with a turbo. In fact, the engine is boosting power for so many situations that fuel economy is 20/27 mpg city/highway Â„ average for the segment, but weÂd expect more from this kind of motor. None of this is of fatal concern. It just means shoppers might start look-ing around at the competition. And the CascadaÂs price doesnÂt help in that department. The base version starts at $33,990, including freight charges (every option box checked will get the Cascada slightly above $37K.) This places BuickÂs convertible in between a new Ford Mus-tang convertible and a used BMW 328i droptop. But both of these are sports cars, and the Cascada is aiming more for a comfortable cruising clientele. In fact, this is more of a direct competitor to the Volkswagen Eos. The Cascada feels more updated than VWÂs 10-year-old convertible, but the Eos offers a folding hardtop for slightly less money. Volkswagen dealers are even willing to make deals on their car because the line will be killed off in a few months. See where the problem is starting here? Convertibles are about buying something interesting and fun. The Cas-cada is good Â„ but not great. Buick needs a car with the kind of distinction that makes people say ÂYes!ÂŽ instantly. No doubt plenty of Floridians will buy and enjoy the Cascada. We just know on our beautifully sunny days, itÂs easy to walk across the street to the other dealers, too.

BY ALAN SCULLEYFlorida Weekly CorrespondentDuran Duran, having spent the better part of 35 years making music and tour-ing, certainly know more about album making, about themselves and about life than when the group exploded onto the scene in the early 1980s. After playing gigs on a tour that included a stop in Miami, the band plays opening night at SunFest (8:30 p.m. April 27). But bassist John Taylor says one of the biggest lessons he and bandmates Simon Le Bon (vocals), Nick Rhodes (key-boards) and Roger Taylor (drums) have learned is that they donÂt know it all. And thatÂs after more than three decades of performing together. ÂWeÂre as good as our collaborators,ÂŽ Mr. Taylor said in a late-February phone interview. ÂWeÂre as good as our produc-ers.

She pours liquid molten glass into a sand mold, then cools it for six days in a specially controlled oven before cracking open the mold to reveal her creation. ÂWhen people first view my work, IÂm often told they feel a certain alive-ness inherent in the work,ÂŽ Ms. Rose says. Â My goal as an artist is to inject Glass sculptor to demonstrate her art at Lake WorthÂ’s Benzaiten CenterBY MARY THURWACHTERFlorida Weekly Correspondent Rose bloomsÂ“My goal as an artist is to inject life into whatever I can make.Â” Â— Marlene Rose, artist

I am fascinated by design.I love being able to recognize something iconic, like an Eames chair, or to recognize the fabrics designed by Dorothy Draper or the dishes designed by Susie Cooper or Clarice Cliff. On the surface, the clean lines of a Charles or Ray Eames piece seemingly have little in common with DraperÂs pink and green motif at the Greenbrier Hotel in West Virginia. But good design is something that endures. Each of those masters of 20th-century design created the best of their genres. That is why a laminated 1940s chair does not necessarily look out of place in a colonial house. And itÂs why collectors want the floral fabrics and restaurant china Draper created for the Greenbrier, Drake and other hotels. It also is why collectors will pay top dollar for representative pieces by great designers. Not sure how to shop for those prize pieces? Trust your eye. Clean lines and quality win every time. I recently purchased what I thought was a Baccarat lamp in the shape of an urn at a Fort Myers thrift shop. The price? $15. Turns out my crystal table lamp was made by Paul Hanson in the Â50s and was based on a Baccarat design, according to Jeffrey Burgess, owner of James & Jeffrey Antiques in West Palm Beach. So itÂs almost a Baccarat, but not quite. Still, itÂs a high-quality, classic piece that would fetch several hundred dollars in the right shop. I recognized it as something wonderful because I had walked through shops and read magazines and seen similar pieces. Educate yourself. Magazines and online resources like Pinterest are great for learning about the classics. Look at design magazines and notice how your eye is drawn to objects with pleasing proportions. Most classic designs also are of good quality. ThereÂs nothing more satisfying than seeing a vintage piece of Baker, Widdicomb or Kittinger furniture Â„ the drawers and doors always open and close smoothly Â„ even a ragged piece will be recognizable as something that started out with a great pedigree. Quality and good design go together, and they are part of what makes coming home special. Now, start hunting! Q scott SIMMONS email@example.com COLLECTORÂS CORNERGood design is something that never goes out of style LOOK WHAT I FOUND Bought: GannonÂs Antiques & Art, 16521 S. Tamiami Trail, No. 1, Fort Myers; (239) 489-2127 or gannonsantiques.com. Cost: $69. The Skinny: Just when you think you have seen everything in a pattern you collect, you learn something new. At the turn of the last century, porcelain chocolate sets, with a pot and small cups, were all the rage. I had seen the individual chocolate spoons Â„ they resemble a baby spoon Â„ but I had never seen one of the long-handled muddling spoons, designed to stir the hot chocolate that had settled at the bottom of the pot. The shop had this spoon identified as a bon-bon server, but that didnÂt seem right. For starters, the bowl of the spoon is too small to hold just about any kind of snack. Towle first made its Old Colonial pattern in 1895, toward the end of the Victorian Age. ItÂs a pattern I collect, and I love seeing the serving implements that would have graced a Victorian table Â„ almond scoops, macaroni servers, anchovy forks, lettuce forks, marrow spoons and, yes, chocolate muddlers.

Each piece is hand-cast from molten glass in a spectacular process of heat and light. In the end, the work has a quality of timelessness reflecting both ancient and modern.ÂŽ The moment of creation is a moment of birth. ÂItÂs like a dream sequence for me when my creation becomes the begin-ning of anotherÂs interaction with it,ÂŽ she explains. ÂItÂs a glimpse of some-thing fleeting, a tribute to existence beyond the present moment as I envi-sion the future of the sculpture in its ultimate environment.ÂŽ Her work comes with great risk. It is, she says, both Âdangerous and thrilling to pour extremely hot lava.ÂŽ Fortunately, she has never burned herself badly in the process. ÂI might burn myself ironing clothes but not in my work,ÂŽ she says. ÂItÂs so dangerous you have to be highly aware of what youÂre doing at all times.ÂŽ Her husband, Thomas Coates, an architect and a member of her team, hasnÂt been as fortunate. He once suf-fered second-degree burns from an encounter with a scalding hot ladle. Ms. Rose received her masterÂs of fine arts degree at Tulane University in New Orleans. The technique of bronze cast-ing really clicked with her. ÂTwenty-five years later, IÂm still excited by the techniques,ÂŽ she says. ÂItÂs a team effort and IÂve always liked team sports and dance. I like the danger-ous dance of heat and light.ÂŽ Her success came quickly after college. There are very few women in the world who do what she does Â„ and she is the only one in the U.S. One of her goals as an artist, she says, is to uplift, to make people feel good. ÂI try to focus on the positive and good things happen. I had two kids later in life and they are my biggest blessings.ÂŽ Ms. Rose, 48, is looking forward to coming to Lake Worth. ÂIÂm really excited about this,ÂŽ she says. ÂIÂm happy to be able to share this technique. It is an opportunity to show collectors and students what I do and the various stages of my work.ÂŽ She will bring several finished products to display and sell. Pieces typically range from $3,000 to $10,000, although she has some smaller pieces for $950. Founded by artist JoAnne Berkow, the Benzaiten Center (Benzaiten is the Japa-nese goddess who represents all things flowing) encourages young, emerging and well-established artists to continue living and working in South Florida. ÂWe are so lucky to have her (Marlene Rose) coming to the center to give two demonstrations as this is not something she generally has time for,ÂŽ Ms. Berkow says. ÂBesides, not every facility is large enough to accommodate a crowd like we can. For Laura Donefer, another well-known artist who was our first vis-iting artist this season, we had over 700 people for the public Saturday demo.ÂŽ Q BLOOMSFrom page 1 Marlene Rose eventsAn Intimate Dinner to Meet the Artist Â— 6 p.m.-9 p.m. Thursday, April 28.

I think the longer youÂve been around, or the longer weÂve been around and the longer IÂve been around, the more I really need that objective eye and ear to say ÂYou know what, maybe you should try thisÂ or ÂThatÂs really good. ThatÂs a good idea, just not so much.ÂÂŽ The value of a strong producer as a collaborator was especially apparent to Taylor in the making of Duran DuranÂs acclaimed current album, ÂPaper Gods.ÂŽ The group worked with Ben Hudson (aka Mr. Hudson) and his engineer, Josh Blair, on the bulk of the album. In addi-tion, Mark Ronson, who produced the groupÂs previous album, the 2010 release ÂAll You Need Is Know,ÂŽ returned to co-produce ÂPressure OffÂŽ with Hudson and Nile Rogers of Chic, and a second song, ÂOnly In Dreams,ÂŽ with Rogers and the band. Mr. Hudson also was a key contributor as a songwriter, getting co-writing credits with the band members on nine of the albumÂs 12 songs. ÂThe turning point of the album was one guy in particular, Ben Hudson, and he was so committed to us,ÂŽ Mr. Taylor said. ÂHe seemed to have such a strong understanding of what we could and couldnÂt do. He really opened things up for us. We were a little bit hamstrung. He just opened up a broader range of possibilities, in the way that Mark Ron-son had done on the album before. We were also lucky to have Mark involved in this album again. And what Mark brought, he brought Nile Rogers back into the mix. So at one point we had like this dream team of collaborators.ÂŽ Duran Duran and its producers also brought in a few musical guests, who made their presence felt on ÂPaper Gods.ÂŽ Janelle Monae pairs with Mr. Le Bon for some big vocals on the funky ÂPressure Off.ÂŽ The soaring vocal of Kiesza introduces ÂLast Night in the City,ÂŽ a big, synth-and-electronic-driven dance-pop song. Actress Lindsay Lohan does a great dry-but-sensual-sounding spoken vocal as a doctor that brings plenty of personality to ÂDaceophobia.ÂŽ On the instrumental side of things, Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante adds some sparkling guitar work to the expansive ballad ÂThe Uni-verse Alone.ÂŽ ÂThe first two songs on the album actually start with voices other than SimonÂs,ÂŽ Mr. Taylor said. ÂAs Simon would tell you, letting it go and allow-ing that to happen was really tough. But once he did it, it was very liberating. That is probably what has given this album its particular flavor. When I look back on our catalog and say what gave this album its flavor, what gave that album its flavor, with ÂPaper GodsÂ itÂs going to be these other voices that come in and speak for us.ÂŽ The quality of the music and production translated to audiences upon the Sept. 11 release of ÂPaper Gods.ÂŽ It debuted at No. 10 on Billboard magazineÂs album chart Â„ the first time Duran Duran has had a top 10 album since the 1993 self-titled album (also known as ÂThe Wedding AlbumÂŽ). ÂPaper GodsÂŽ also has been one of Duran DuranÂs best reviewed albums, gaining praise for its hook-filled, mod-ern-sounding music and imaginative production touches. The glossy, dancy pop-rock sound for which the group is known remains intact on ÂPaper GodsÂŽ (ÂPressure OffÂŽ and ÂFace For TodayÂŽ sound like prototypical Duran Duran songs). But thereÂs also a good bit of experimentation Â„ ÂDanceophobia,ÂŽ the punchy, dance-friendly ÂButterfly GirlÂŽ and the dreamy ÂChange The SkylineÂŽ are among the changeups Â„ while nearly every song has a twist that shows Duran Duran and its producers had an eye on the details in making ÂPaper Gods.ÂŽ Critical acclaim is something that was hard to come by for Duran Duran during much of the groupÂs career, as the group in the 1980s was often dismissed as a disposable, manufactured pop band. But popularity wasnÂt a problem. With their pin-up looks, sharp wardrobe and slick and playful dance-pop sound, Duran Duran became a band that helped define the early era of MTV and the 1980s as a decade both musically and in fashion. Beginning with its second album, 1982Âs ÂRio,ÂŽ Duran Duran reeled off three platinum selling albums that included more than a half-dozen hit singles. Then after a slight retreat in success, the group rebounded with the 1993 self-titled effort (ÂThe Wedding AlbumÂŽ), which spawned a pair of top 10 singles. Mr. Taylor feels that album helped Duran Duran escape from being seen strictly as an Â80s band. ÂI mean, ÂOrdinary WorldÂ was a massive song for us and right after that came ÂCome Undone,ÂÂŽ he said. ÂAnd it was like, ÂOh, hits that arenÂt Â80s hits.Â And that was like a stake in the ground we were able to put into the next decade. That was very satisfying, absolutely essential. If youÂre not going to be defined by an era, you have to have artistic statements. And in our business, the most obvious ones are in songs. I mean, once we got out of that idea, once you canÂt be defined by a decade, you kind of take control a little bit of your legacy. And you know, weÂve had some lesser bites, but we still had some bites since then.ÂŽ There were, however, struggles after that second bit of success. There were personnel changes (including the depar-tures of John Taylor and Roger Tay-lor) and uneven albums. But a reunion in 2001 of the classic lineup has held (with the exception of Andy TaylorÂs departure in 2006, and Duran Duran has had some modest chart success and regained its drawing power as an arena-headlining live act that Mr. Taylor said brings plenty of visual flash and lots of hit songs to its current show. Mr. Taylor said there was some reality to the playful, cheery, slightly debauched image Duran Duran projected in its Â80s videos, and todayÂs four band members remain good friends. ÂWeÂre not a bunch of sour grapes. We are guys who tend to have a good time when weÂre in each otherÂs company,ÂŽ he said. ÂAnd we kind of maintained that. I think it was a natural chemistry that we had in the beginning. And now itÂs more like, we kind of keep each other up. You know, we can do dark and moody, but thatÂs not really who we are. We enjoy each otherÂs company,ÂŽ Taylor said. ÂWhen itÂs necessary, we take time away from each other so that, when we walk out on stage, weÂre f***ing glad to be in each otherÂs company. So what youÂre seeing is a real expression of brotherhood and friendship and a bunch of guys who have chosen this path and are glad for it.ÂŽ Q DURAN DURANFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOÂ‘Paper Gods,Â’ Duran DuranÂ’s latest album, was its first top 10 since 1993.

Instead, let the LambÂs gentler self emerge to deal with a problem that requires delicacy.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) By all means, have fun and enjoy your newly expanded social life. But donÂt forget that some people are depending on you to keep promises that are very impor-tant to them. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You need to wait patiently for an answer to a workplace problem and not push for a decision. Remember: Time is on your side. A financial matter needs closer attention.

He works in cast glass and heÂs known for his large pieces that depict indus-trial, everyday objects (as well as the human figure) in glass. Beck said: ÂI am interested in playing volumes of mass against details by extracting and exag-gerating the things I find interesting. Ultimately the work should challenge the eye and the mind.ÂŽ Ross Richmond started working with glass at the Cleveland Institute of Art in 1991. Today, heÂs one of the most acclaimed glass sculptors work-ing today. Richmond says, ÂMuch of my current work is influenced by manÂs relationship with nature, as well as his impact upon nature. I find faces and hands to be very beautiful and expres-sionistic, a source of silent communica-tion, and I use gestures and titles to help convey an overall story. My pieces are usually about communication with self or between others.ÂŽ Habatat Gallery is at 513 Clematis St., West Palm Beach.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15 FLORIDA WRITERSDoctored credentials do imposter doctor in after decades of role-playingQ ÂThe Wrong Road HomeÂŽ by Ian A. OÂConnor. Pegasus Publishing & Entertainment Group. 284 pages. Trade paperback, $14.95; Kindle e-book, $2.99. The jacket copy describes this book as ÂA story of treachery and deceit inspired by true events.ÂŽ Des-mond Donahue, the unlicensed ÂdoctorÂŽ who is the central character in this story that reads like a memoir, actually existed. Exposs about him were all over the media some decades back. The value of Ian A. OÂConnorÂs novelistic treatment is in its psychological and moral prob-ing of a man who, by living a lie, denies himself a full and truly free life. Early on, readers learn that the time comes when DesmondÂs deceit is exposed. Thus, the question for readers is not whether he will get caught and pay the consequences, but how did it come to pass that he made decisions that led to infamy and self-loathing? What kind of friendships can a man who cannot reveal his dark secret have? What has he traded for the stature and degree of wealth that reversed the harsh poverty of his early years? The portrait of those early years in a small Irish town is rich in detail and totally credible. We can see why Des-mond is not anxious to stay in a place that is at once remote and lacking in opportunities. As a young man, he is fortunate enough to have a series of jobs with large construction compa-nies. These jobs enable him to travel, and they open his horizons to pos-sible futures. The idea of becoming a doctor becomes an obsession. He comes to the U.S. following opportunities in Chicago. Here, he has employments in restau-rants and earns a GED that allows him to consid-er higher education as the next step toward fulfill-ing his ambition. He takes necessary science courses and assists with lab work in various medical fields. When he suddenly receives an opportunity to enter a special medical pro-gram in the School of Med-icine at University College-Cork, Desmond returns to Ireland ready to push toward his dreams, only to discover that the official who authorized his admis-sion had overstepped his authority. Desmond must go through many lower level hurdles and reapply. Dealing with this grave and unfair setback sets him on the path of cut-ting corners and indulging in smaller and then larger deceptions. Though he gains the knowledge and skills needed to perform like a skilled, credentialed physician, he never becomes one. His friend Roger temporarily solves DesmondÂs problems by arranging for false documents that allow Desmond to perpetuate his fraud. Indeed, Roger hires Desmond to co-staff a govern-ment-run group of medical centers. But the risk of discovery is always there, and the rest of DesmondÂs life is based on a lie. There is one grand romance. Miraculously, Desmond meets a gorgeous woman who overwhelms and entices him into a passionate affair. The author, however, provides hints about this womanÂs agenda and her hidden nature. She abandons Desmond, and his world is rocked once again. Just as she never knew his secrets, he never knew hers. Desmond rebuilds his life sl owly, and eventually we find him passing for an accredited medical doctor in Florida (a segment of his life in the Sunshine State is set in beautiful Naples in the 1970s). He works effectively, and illegally, for a long time, but eventually his past, his path of deceit, catches up with him. Mr. OÂConnor builds a highly realist psychological portrait of a man addicted to a dream and determined to attain it. We see the degree to which Desmond rationalizes his decisions, and frequent-ly we are led to be understanding and compassionate, if not forgiving. This character is well conceived and well executed, as are the wide range of set-tings in which we find him. Particularly effective are the authorÂs descriptions of the life of a medical professional. He presents vivid and con-vincing scenes about interacting with patients, being part of a hospital staff, socializing with colleagues, performing surgery, studying, handling administra-tive chores and paperwork Â„ all the aspects of a doctorÂs life. Mr. OÂConnor, who lives in Palm Beach Gardens, has provided a fine entertainment filled with plenty of food for thought. Indeed, itÂs a lavish buffet.

NoDriving home after seeing ÂThe Jungle Book,ÂŽ I told my wife I thought it was visually impressive but the story was lacking and there were too many superfluous characters. That it all felt kind of flat and tedious. She then point-ed out that I had the exact same reaction to DisneyÂs 1967 animated version of ÂThe Jungle Book.ÂŽ One reason the remakeÂs plot feels hackneyed and thrown together rather than coherent and vibrant could be because itÂs loosely based on a number of short stories by Rudyard Kipling; even the 1967 film was a piecemeal compilation of storylines and characters from throughout KiplingÂs series. YouÂd think writer Justin Marks and director Jon Favreau (ÂIron ManÂŽ) would have learned from these shortcomings, but theyÂve loyally stuck with their prede-cessor to a fault.The main storyline is a bit thin, but functional. Mowgli (Neel Sethi) is a human boy in the jungle being raised by wolves (Lupita NyongÂo and Giancarlo Esposito) and a paternal panther named Bagheera (Ben Kingsley). Their livelihood is threatened when a tiger named Shere Khan (Idris Elba), citing his own danger-ous encounter with a man years earlier, decides he wants to kill Mowgli. Bagheera decides its best to take Mowgli back to his fellow humans, but Mowgli gets lost along the way and settles in with a bumbling bear named Baloo (Bill Mur-ray). While these basics are OK the lack of a subplot is back-breaking. WhatÂs more, we donÂt need a snake named Kaa (Scarlett Johansson) telling us MowgliÂs backstory, nor do we need an extended sequence with King Louie (Christopher Walken) that only serves to lengthen the running time. Anything and everything accomplished in these sequences could have been achieved much easier and in more economical ways; instead, the story meanders until the whole thing becomes a drag. Mr. FavreauÂs remake was shot entirely on a sound-stage in Los Angeles, which is mind-boggling considering the quality of the visuals (this is similar to how ÂAvatarÂŽ was shot). The rain, darkness of night, various wildlife and vast terrains of the jungle look and feel authentic, and in 3D itÂs a dynamic viewing experience. Watch for the little details Â„ shadows on the walls and the wolvesÂ hair rising up in fear, for example Â„ and youÂll have a real appreciation of the artwork on display here. Too bad that alone is not enough. This isnÂt a musical, but there are two songs that harken back to the 1967 film, though only one Â„ ÂBare NecessitiesÂŽ Â„ is engaging and feels right (note the tremendous detailed visual effects on the big bearÂs wet fur). Just about all of Mr. MurrayÂs lines are a hoot, making him the clear standout among an impressive list of names in the voice cast. Disney is in the midst of a series of live action adaptations of its classic cartoons, with ÂCinderellaÂŽ a box office hit in 2014, ÂThe Jungle BookÂŽ now and ÂBeauty and the BeastÂŽ slated for March 2017 (not to mention Angelina JolieÂs 2014 ÂMaleficentÂŽ spinoff from ÂSleep-ing BeautyÂŽ). ItÂs not a bad trend, as technology has clearly advanced enough to make any world from any imagination come alive. It is bad, however, when the filmmakers donÂt fix what was wrong in the first place. If youÂre going to remake a classic, you have to do better than this. Q dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> This is comedian Garry ShandlingÂ’s nal lm.

B18 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 21-27, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY jerry GREENFIELDvino@floridaweekly.com VINOIs this man Â‘The King of Chardonnay?Â’His name is Miljenko Grgich, but everybody calls him Mike, for apparent reasons. And, since this year is the 40th anniversary of the so-called ÂJudgment of Paris,ÂŽ itÂs time you get to know him Âƒ and his wines. If youÂve seen the movie ÂBottle Shock,ÂŽ you know that the famous blind tasting held in Paris in 1976 consisted of a lineup of American and French wines sam-pled by a panel of FranceÂs most dis-tinguished connois-seurs and critics. In the red category, six of the top 10 winners were American, includ-ing StagÂs Leap, Clos du Val, and Ridge Montebello. In fact, several of the judges ranked two of the American wines in first and second place against the finest Bordeauxes. In the white wine judging, three of the top four wines were American, including the No. 1 Chardonnay, Chateau Montelena. Though the movie does not disclose this, Mr. Grgich, working at Montelena at the time, made that wine. The event put Ameri-can wines squarely on the world stage, and Mike was a big part of it, even though he says he had no idea a blind tasting was hap-pening in Paris. ÂI was winemaker and limited partner at Montelena,ÂŽ he recalls, Âbut was not told by Mr. Barrett about the event.ÂŽ He relates that in the previous year, the estateÂs 1972 Chardonnay Âwon over three best French Chardonnays at a tasting in San Diego.ÂŽ ÂI knew it was something important when a reporter from The New York Times called to say they were sending a photog-rapher to take my picture! Imagine! A little immigrant named Mike Grgich was to be in a famous New York newspaper. I started dancing around the winery and singing in Croatian that I was born again! It was a miracle!ÂŽ Mike also remembers that the prizewinning Chardonnay sold, at the time, for $6.50 a bottle. Today, thereÂs one bottle on display in the Smithsonian Museum to commemorate the event. The results of the Paris tasting changed his life. ÂAs soon as the story was released, I started getting offers to become a winemak-er,ÂŽ he told me. ÂBut I had always wanted to own my own winery. I had a five-year agreement that ended in 1977 and I told Mr. Barrett that I would be leaving at the end of the contract. I earned 1 percent ownership for each year I was winemaker at Chateau Montelena, and I took the money from that to purchase land in Rutherford.ÂŽ The rest, as they say, is wine world history. Today, Grgich Hills Estate produces a wide assortment of wines from classic varietals, at several different (and attractive) price points. ÂI have always thought acid is important in white wines,ÂŽ he says. ÂOur wines are dry, crisp, balanced, food friendly, aromatic, not too oaky.ÂŽ He wants his wines to Âgive a lingering enjoyment.ÂŽ They do.Grgich Hills Estate Chardonnay Napa Valley 2013 Â„ According to Mike, 2013 was a Ânearly perfectÂŽ vintage for Chardon-nay. This sample, from vineyards in the southern tip of Napa Valley, gives off peach aromas and that characteristic Âtutti-fruttiÂŽ Chardonnay nose. On the palate, there are hints of mango and a mix of tropical fruits. WW 92, about $40. Grgich Hills Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013 Â„ The law says that if you want to call your wine by a varietal name (like ÂCabernet SauvignonÂŽ) there must be at least 75 percent of that grape in the bottle. The rest can be Âƒ what-ever. In this case, Âthe restÂŽ is a yummy blend of Bordeaux varietals, including Cab-ernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot. As youÂd expect from this particular combination, there are bold, full-bodied flavors of currant, mocha and licorice, with spicy hints of cinnamon. WW 91-92 points, about $70. Grgich Hills Estate Zinfandel Napa Valley 2012 Â„ ItÂs a bit rare to grow Zinfandel in Napa, but Mike does Âƒ in a 34-acre vineyard above Calistoga. He co-ferments his Zinfandel with about 2 percent Petite Sirah to add complexity and structure. This wine is very true to type, with big blackber-ry flavors, black cherry, and perhaps a pep-pery note way in the back. Of course, youÂd drink this wine at your July 4 cookout, with grilled meats, chicken and lots of barbecue sauce. WW 91, about $35. Ask the Wine Whisperer Q: ÂMy small wine refrigerator stopped working, and IÂm worried about the condi-tion of the wines inside. WhatÂs the best way to store them if thereÂs no cooling?ÂŽ Â„ C. Gold, Fort MyersA: The biggest enemies of wine are light, heat and vibration. If your bottles are stored in a moderately dark place (not on the kitchen windowsill), protected from vibra-tion (not on top of the fridge), and kept at a constant temperature, they should be fine for a while.

The Price: $8.95 The Details: This salad contains a few of my favorite things Â„ a mix of fresh baby greens, corn, red bell peppers, a bit of red cabbage, shredded carrots, bits of marinated artichoke, fresh-grilled chicken and is topped with Parmesan cheese and a walnut vinaigrette. The chicken was tender and flavorful, and the vinaigrette was fresh and asser-tive in this salad. The day of my visit, I sat outside with three friends. Owner Giuseppe Cian-flone was on his own, cooking and serv-ing. It took awhile for food to arrive, but all was served with good humor and we did not mind the wait because the com-pany was good, the weather was delight-ful and the food was worth the wait. Q Â„ Scott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINEIt all started with the flip of a coin.When Laurent Godbout was 15 years old, he was undecided about which direc-tion his life should take. Bored with high school, he decided he had two options Â„ one was a career in construction, the other in cuisine. To choose between the two, he flipped a coin. Diners at his res-taurants, Chez lÂpicier in Montreal and a new one by the same name in West Palm Beach, are eternally grateful for the result of that coin flip. ÂMy mother was an early role model for cooking well, but I knew I needed to go to culinary school to really learn my trade,ÂŽ he said. ÂI had to travel outside of my little town in Canada to get the edu-cation I needed.ÂŽ Chef Godbout arrived in Montreal in 1993 and under Chef Nicolas Jongleux, he discovered a passion for sophisticated and creative cuisine. ÂAll of your life when you work with other chefs, there are many things to learn from them,ÂŽ he said. ÂFrom Chef Jongleux I learned the importance of freshness and quality of ingredients. This must be attended to every day. I also learned from him and other chefs how to manage a team and drive a kitchen. From them I developed my own personality and style.ÂŽ Chez lÂpicier means Âfrom the grocer,ÂŽ Chef Godbout said, and he is pas-sionate about the freshness of his ingre-dients and the inventive, original ways he employs them in his recipes. In 2000 he opened the first Chez lÂpicier in Montreal and it was an immediate hit, winning ÂThe Most Beautiful BusinessÂŽ award by Trades and Design Montreal in 2001. In 2006, Chef Godbout was again recognized as ÂNational Chef of the Year.ÂŽ Buoyed by that endorsement, he and his wife, Veronique, opened Chez lÂpicier in Palm Beach last July. ÂWe bought a house here in 2006 and really love the warmer weather and vari-ety of restaurants,ÂŽ he said. ÂPlus, itÂs a short flight to Montreal, only about 2 hours. I go back and forth between the two restaurants, but the Montreal res-taurant is well established and my team there is very capable. That allows me to focus on our restaurant here.ÂŽ Chez lÂpicier evokes the feel of the seaside environment around it Â„ colors of blue, green and beige Â„ and round tables in a casual atmosphere. In keep-ing with the ÂgrocerÂŽ aspect, shelves are stocked with cookbooks and a specialty collection of gourmet syrups, vinegars, oils, jams and tartinades that are ingredi-ents from Chef GodboutÂs recipes. Popular appetizers include the Avocado, Sesame Oil and Yuzu Tartar, Puffed Red Quinoa ($14) and the Grilled Octopus with Feta Cheese, Tomato and Tzatziki ($21). Main courses range from the Dill and Almond Crusted Snapper ($32), with marinated fennel and apple salad, malt vinegar and beurre blanc to the Seared Chilean Sea Bass ($46) featur-ing a honey-soy glaze, celery root puree and sauted spinach. When heÂs away from the restaurant, Chef GodboutÂs wife, Veronique, does the cooking. ÂI think sheÂs a better cook than me,ÂŽ he said. ÂSheÂs always surprising me with different dishes I would not attempt myself, such as braised chicken with green olives. She also makes wonderful granola and muffins.ÂŽ Laurent GodboutAge: 45 Original Hometown: Eastern Townships on the Lake Mgantic, Canada Restaurant: Chez lÂpicier, 288 S.

Introducing the a revolutionary new laser treatment for vaginal revitalization. Early detection key to treating lung cancer I n the United States, there are approx-imately 40 million current smokers Â„ thatÂs more than 13 percent of the total population. Cigarette smoking is the No. 1 cause of preventable disease and death in the country, contributing to 220,000 lung cancer diagnoses and 150,000 lung cancer deaths each year. While lung cancer is one of the more prevalent diseases, it is one of the hard-est to effectively treat Â„ more people die of lung cancer than breast, prostate and colorectal cancer combined. This is due to the fact that symptoms only appear in the late stages of the disease, when it is often much harder to cure. Lung cancer is truly a silent killer. Despite these alarming statistics, there are reasons to be hopeful. Quitting smok-ing is the absolute first step if you are a current smoker, but thereÂs even more that can be done to ensure a happy and healthy future. As the medical field has advanced, weÂve learned that the No. 1 way to increase the surviv-al rate of lung can-cer is to catch the disease in its early stages. This is why itÂs important to be screened, even if you arenÂt exhibiting any typical symp-toms associated with lung cancer. The screening program at Jupiter Medical Center has increased to 40 percent the detection of early stage cancer in our lung cancer patients. This is leading to improved o utcomes and survival. If you are a current or former smoker, your smoking history is an excellent indicator of your risk of developing lung cancer. Some criteria for higher risk patients is: Q 55-75 years old Q Smoked a pack a day for 20 years, or two packs a day for 10 years Beginning at the 30 pack-year history, Medicare will cover the screenings of these high-risk patients, but that doesnÂt mean these are the only people who should be screened. If you fit any of the above criteria, it is a good idea to consult your physician about what steps you should take and if a screening is right for you. For those who donÂt qual-ify for the Medicare reimbursement, Jupiter Medical Center offers CT lung screening for $99. Types of testingQ Low dose CT scans Q PET scans Q Bronchoscopies These scans and screenings enable us to see potential nodules in the chest that can indicate lung cancer long before any symptoms are present, allowing us to be proactive and tailored in our approach. At Jupiter Medical Center, we believe that combining the most advanced tech-nology with the best clinical experience will provide the best o utc omes. ThatÂs why weÂve paired top notch equipment with the most knowledgeable and expe-rienced physicians. Lung nodule clinicFor those patients who have findings during a scan that might not be cancer, we recommend our Lung Nodule Clinic, comprised of the countryÂs leading inter-ventional radiologists, pulmonologists and oncologists Â„ all the right people in the room at one time to ensure the cor-rect diagnosis.

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago tested whether a commu-nity-based intervention focused on Latin dancing could benefit 54 Spanish-speaking adults (about 65 years old, 80 percent Mexican female) who were not very physi-cally active. Participants were randomly assigned to either participate in a dance program twice a week for four months or to attend a health education program. All participants completed questionnaires about their leisure time physical activity and a 400-meter walk test at the start and end of the study. After four months of twice-weekly Latin dancing, researchers found: Q Dancers walked faster and were more physically active during their leisure time than before they started dancing. Q Dancers completed a 400-meter walk in just under 392 seconds compared with almost 430 seconds at the start of the study. Q Leisure physical activity rose from 650 minutes to nearly a total of 818 minutes per week.Those in the health education classes had smaller improvements in their fit-ness. They finished the 400-meter walk in about 409 seconds at the end of the study compared with 419 seconds four months earlier; total time spent on week-ly leisure physical activity increased from 522 minutes to 628 minutes over the course of the study.Called BAILAMOS, the dance program is a culturally tailored, community-based lifestyle intervention developed at UI-Chi-cago by David Marquez and Miguel Men-dez. It includes four dance styles Â„ meren-gue, bachata, cha cha cha and salsa Â„led by a dance instructor and with more complex choreography as the program progresses. Increasing physical activity is a key goal of the AHA, which recommends that all adults get a minimum of 150 minutes of moderate physical activity or at least 75 minutes of vigorous physical activity (or a combination of both) each week. Regular physical activity has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 dia-betes and complications associated with advancing age. It also improves balance and mobility and helps reduce stress.Scaling up such a culturally attuned Â„ and what appears to be fun Â„ interven-tion could have significant public health effects, Priscilla Vasquez, the studyÂs lead author, says.

What is a stroke?A stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted or blocked. When this happens, brain cells in the immediate area start to die because they do not get the oxygen and nutrients they need to function properly. Disabilities that can result from a stroke include paralysis, cognitive deficits, speech problems and numbness. The most common type of stroke is ischemic, which occurs when a blood clot blocks a vessel or artery in the brain. The other type is hemorrhagic, which is caused by a broken blood ves-sel that bleeds into the brain. Currently, tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) is the only FDA-approved drug to treat an ischemic stroke. Once the onset of stroke symptoms happens, there is a three-hour window in which this treatment must be administered to have the desired effect. In 2015, St. MaryÂs Medical Center delivered tPA at an aver-age time of just 33 minutes, far below the national average of 51 minutes. As a Comprehensive Stroke Center, we also have the ability to treat eligible patients even after the three-hour win-dow for tPA through advanced interven-tional procedures, such as mechanical thrombectomy. During this minimally invasive procedure, a small catheter is used to open an occlusion in the brain, restoring blood flow to the affected area. SymptomsIf you or someone you know is having a stroke, be prepared to act promptly if there is sudden: Numbness in the arm, leg or face, especially if it is on one side of the body. Confusion, difficulty talking or problems understanding speech. Trouble seeing out of one or both eyes.Difficulty walking, dizziness, or loss of balance or coordination. Intense headache for no known reason.ItÂs important to act F.A.S.T. in these situations because of the small window of time for the most effective treatment options. Â€ Face Â… Does one side of the personÂs face droop when you ask them to smile? Â€ Arms Â… Does one arm drift downward when you ask the person to raise both arms? Â€ Speech Â… Does the person have slurred speech when asked to repeat a simple phrase? Â€ Time Â… Call 9 -1-1 immediately if you see any of these signs.An award-winning, multidisciplinary Team The Comprehensive Stroke Center team at St. MaryÂs Medical Center is com-prised of various specialists dedicated to delivering the best possible o utcomes for patients.

ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com APRIL 2016 healthy living C5 Vaginal revitalization versus Â‘rejuvenationÂ’ I have seen many women who, after either childbirth or menopause, were concerned about whether their vaginas were Âtoo looseÂŽ and needed something done. There are many ads on the Internet touting Âvaginal rejuvenationÂŽ proce-dures purporting to restore tone and improve sexual enjoyment, among other things. One of the things I try to help my patients understand is the relationship between the overall health of the vagi-nal tissues, includ-ing muscles, muco-sa (inner skin) and connective tissue, and proper func-tion. A healthy vagina should have adequate moisture and elasticity, with good muscle tone and strength. I am skeptical of surgeries purported to achieve this in the absence of a visible and measurable structural defect. Undoubtedly, childbirth can affect the vaginal muscles and damage some of the supporting structures. Sufficient damage can lead to a condition called prolapse, or dropping of the organs which results in a protru-sion of tissue from the vaginal opening. That, however, is a different matter than ÂtighteningÂŽ the vagina. While it is much better to have good muscle tone in the pelvis, as this leads to better functioning of the bladder, bowels, and appropriate blood flow in the vagina and more enjoyable sexual experience, the risk of a vaginal Âtight-eningÂŽ surgery in the absence of an obvious structural defect includes pain-ful intercourse as well as potential com-plications from the procedure, depend-ing upon what is done. With aging and menopause, the vagina may become drier and less elastic, the muscles may become weakened or develop abnormal spasm leading to painful intercourse as well as pelvic or abdominal pain. A surgical rejuvenation procedure is not going to treat those problems. Often, pelvic floor physical therapy can restore not only proper bladder and bowel function, but it can improve vaginal function and reduce pain. When the tissues have become thin and dry, they may respond to vaginal estrogen creams, tablets or rings, an oral prepa-ration called Osphena, or vaginal laser therapy. Laser therapy is not Ârejuvenation,ÂŽ but, rather, a revitalization of the tissue, with effects similar to vaginal estrogen therapy, only without the hormones. The objective is to promote proper blood supply, encourage new, proper collagen and elastin deposits to form, leading to better tissue strength and function. The combination of treating the pelvic floor muscles and the vaginal tissues provides the desired Ârejuvena-tionÂŽ without a surgical procedure. Of course, if there is a problem related to torn or damaged tissue, surgi-cal repair is sometimes appropriate. Restoring proper anatomy can be an important part of promoting vaginal health; however, it should not be taken lightly nor, in my opinion, should it be a ÂcosmeticÂŽ procedure.

C6 healthy living APRIL 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYStudy: At least 75 percent of prediabetic patients not treated by primary care doctors UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA Less than one-quarter of patients who met the criteria for prediabetes received drug or lifestyle modification treat-ment from their primary care physi-cian, according to University of Florida researchers, who say the findings indi-cate physicians are missing opportuni-ties for diabetes prevention. The study appeared in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine. More than a third of U.S. adults have prediabetes, which is defined as hav-ing blood glucose concentrations higher than normal, but not high enough for a diabetes diagnosis. People with pre-diabetes have a greater risk of vascular problems, kidney disease, and nerve and retinal damage. ÂWe know that prediabetes is considered one of the biggest risk factors for the development of diabetes, with esti-mates ranging from 15 to 30 percent of people with prediabetes developing dia-betes within five years,ÂŽ said lead inves-tigator Arch G. Mainous III, Ph.D., chair of the department of health services research, management and policy in the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions, part of UF Health. ÂWe also know that 90 percent of people who have prediabetes donÂt know they have it. So the question becomes where is the doctor in all this? Is the doctor identifying people with prediabetes, telling them about it and providing treatment? ThatÂs what we wanted to find out.ÂŽ The UF study analyzed data from the 2012 National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey, a survey of physician office visits that allows for national estimates of U.S. medical care. The research-ers studied visits to general, family or internal medicine providers by patients age 45 years and older who had physician-ordered blood tests done within the past 90 days. About 34 percent of the patients had a blood glucose level between 5.7 and 6.4 percent, which the American Diabetes Association consid-ers prediabetes. Of those patients, very few were told they had prediabetes, and only 23 percent received treatment for the condition, such as lifestyle modifi-cation counseling or drug therapy, as indicated in their medical records. Low rates of prediabetes diagnosis and treatment might be expected when physicians donÂt have patientsÂ blood test results available, Mr. Mainous said, but patients in this study had undergone recent blood tests. ÂEven with blood test results in front of them, physicians werenÂt detecting prediabetes in their patients in terms of making a diagnosis or providing some sort of management or treatment,ÂŽ said Mr. Mainous, the Florida Blue endowed chair of health administration. Mr. Mainous is currently conducting a survey of several thousand family physicians to understand the reasons why patients arenÂt receiving predia-betes treatment, whether it is doctorsÂ lack of knowledge about prediabetes guidelines, some aspect of the patient-provider relationship or a reluctance to ÂovermedicalizeÂŽ a condition that has not yet progressed to a disease. ÂOne of the keys to diabetes prevention is detection and management of people with prediabetes,ÂŽ Mr. Mainous said. ÂIdentifying people with prediabe-tes and getting them some sort of treat-ment has been shown to be effective for slowing the progression to diabetes or stopping it altogether, and that is the goal of prevention. We donÂt want to manage half the population with diabe-tes. What we want to do is keep them from getting diabetes.ÂŽ Q If youÂ’re a caregiver, take good care of yourself, homecare expert says C aring for an aging parent or a spouse can take a toll on patience, perseverance and even your own health. Irv Seldin knows first-hand.SeldinÂs 88-year-old mother served as the primary caregiver for his 89-year-old father. ÂMom was happy to help most of the time, but she reached a point where she began to feel resentful,ÂŽ he said. ÂShe would tell us, ÂDad canÂt do this and canÂt do that, and I have to do it all for him.Â This in turn led to feelings of guilt. Until we brought in help, Mom was overwhelmed and spiraling down-ward herself. ÂŽ Seldin, the president of Visiting Angels in Palm Beach Gardens, said caregivers can take simple steps to minimize stress and anguish. ÂA good first strategy is to remind yourself that the person youÂre caring for certainly does not want to create frus-tration or be a bur-den,ÂŽ he said. The best course of action is to get counseling from a professional who is familiar with overstressed family care-givers. The second step is to take time off Â„ grab time for yourself. Seldin recommends a minimum of four hours a day, two or three times a week. ÂEverybody needs to have free time to relieve stress,ÂŽ he said. ÂVery often, in a caregiver situation, whether itÂs a parent or a spouse, that opportunity is not easy to come by.ÂŽ Feeling unappreciated as a caregiver also contributes to anxiety, and main-taining personal health and well-being helps combat that. Getting proper nutrition, rest and exercise promotes a positive state of mind, while neglecting health issues can lead to more stress. ÂYou will not continue to be a strong caretaker if you always put your needs last,ÂŽ Seldin said. ÂThis can lead to emotional exhaustion, depression and illness. Understanding and communi-cating your feelings is also part of maintaining your health. There are fewer negative effects of stress for people who admit their feelings and express them.ÂŽ Another piece of advice: All caregivers should have a meeting with other family members to identify problems and develop solutions. ÂTogether, you can plan and share responsibilities so that you do not try to do everything alone,ÂŽ Seldin said. ÂSeek additional help from profession-als, community resources or support groups for any specific medical condi-tions like AlzheimerÂs or cancer.ÂŽ Links for support groups can be found at www.visitingangels.com/ resources. Finally, caregivers should become educated about the details of their loved oneÂs health, including medica-tions and doctors, as well as legal and financial matters. ÂThis helps the day-to-day process move along more smoothly, so that you do not become overwhelmed with logistics,ÂŽ Seldin said.

SUITE 59 PALM BEACH GARDENS561-627-8666PGADENTISTRY.COM Before AfterStudy echoes benefit of statins for those at risk of heart attacks and strokes AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION A few years after new guidelines recommended that several million more Americans take a cholesterol-lowering drug to reduce their risk of having a heart attack or stroke, an extensive international investigation has come to a similar con-clusion. The study known as HOPE-3 sought to find the best way to prevent cardio-vascular disease in people who were considered at an intermediate risk. Researchers pursued this from four angles: giving medicines to lower blood pressure; giving a cholesterol-lowering drug known as a statin; giving a combi-nation of all those medicines and doing nothing. The biggest benefits came from the statin. This echoes the 2013 guidelines for doctors published by the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology, which are con-sidered the standard for treatment in the U.S. The investigation is likely to give doctors more reason to prescribe statins for patients who fall within the new risk category. When the guidelines were originally published in November 2013, controver-sy followed. Much of the backlash was over lowering the bar for recommend-ing who should be prescribed a statin, which in turn drastically increased the number of people encouraged to take the pill. ÂEverybody is beginning to see that what was considered very disruptive when we published it happens to be right,ÂŽ said Sidney Smith, M.D., one of the 20 experts who wrote the 2013 guidelines. Donald Lloyd-Jones, M.D., was among a panel that discussed the findings of HOPE-3 on April 2 during the ACCÂs annual Scientific Session & Expo. He also was among the 2013 guidelines authors. Speaking before an audience of several thousand convention-goers, Dr. Lloyd-Jones referenced the AHA-ACC guidelines and said, ÂI think we got it right.ÂŽ HOPE-3 principal investigator Salim Yusuf, M.D., agreed. ÂThis should reassure anyone who still had questions,ÂŽ said Dr. Smith, a professor of medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill who served as senior advisor to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute for the development of the choles-terol and other CVD preven-tion guidelines. Just as the cholesterol guidelines were reviewed and then updated 2 years ago, now experts are in the midst of updating guidelines for the manage-ment of blood pressure. The HOPE-3 findings provide more data for the writ-ing group to consider. Eva Lonn, the researcher who oversaw the blood pressure component of the study, broke down her findings into three groups. For the one-third of peo-ple who went into the study with the highest systolic blood pressure (the top number in a reading), there were clear benefits to taking the blood-pressure-lowering medication. ÂWe did not see benefits in the middle third,ÂŽ said Dr. Lonn. ÂAnd there was a suggestion of possible harm for individuals who did not have very high blood pressure to begin with.ÂŽ Dr. Lonn, Dr. Yusuf and other researchers from McMaster University in Canada conducted the study, formally called the Heart O utcomes P revention Evaluation-3. It cost between $36 million and $38 million, with funding from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and AstraZeneca, maker of the popular statin Crestor. For more than 5 years, researchers followed 12,705 people who had never had a heart attack or stroke. Participants were men 55 or older and women 60 or older who had one more risk factor for cardiovascular disease, such as a family history of heart attack or stroke, elevated waist-to-hip ratio or recent tobacco use. Everyone who received medicine got the same dosage, and that amount never changed over the course of the study. They also rarely followed up with doc-tors. These aspects were part of the studyÂs aim for simplicity. The study group was ethnically diverse: 29 percent Chinese; 27 percent Hispanic; 20 percent white; 20 percent other Asian; 2 percent black; and 2 per-cent Âother.ÂŽ They were geographically diverse, too, coming from 21 countries.
