Silver Alerts help locate seniors lost on the road or on foot BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@” oridaweekly.com Youve probably seen the electronic message signs on the interstate lighting up with a Silver Alert,Ž displaying the characteris-tics and tag number of a car and imploring motorists who spot it to call #347 or 911. Silver Alerts are a state program started in 2008 under Gov. Charlie Crist based on Amber Alerts (which help find missing chil-dren). But they are specifically for people 60 and older who have memory impairments or cognitive diseases such as Alzheimers and other forms of dementia, and who go missing while driving. Advocates are also developing protocols for law enforcement when seniors go missing on foot.SEE SILVER ALERT, A8 X SEE TRAP, A10 X TRAPITS AHE TREACHEROUS PATH TO A PRESIDENTIAL nomination, and ultimately to the White House, is mined with surprises, scandals, missteps and ill-conceived deeds. Long-forgotten utter ances of the regrettable and embarrassing variety and previously concealed lapses in prudence and decorum invariably fly back to their originators like deftly deployed boomerangs. As the process unfolds and the accumulation of policy contradictions and personal foibles mount, candidates scramble to explain the unexplainable. Little wonder, then, that a presidential campaign resembles Pauls trek to Damascus. Epiphanies abound, profound per-sonal transformations emerge from the ether Why every contending candidate has booby traps leading to the presidency.

Register for a FREE Stroke Screening by calling 561-882-9100 901 45th St • West Palm Beach, FL 33407 | StMarysMC.com Members ofTenet Healths COMMENTARY It’s a Southern traditionThe South is famous for many things but progressive policies or enlightened political leadership are rarely among them. Politically moderate Southerners are lonely voices within the conserva-tive choruses dominating the statehouses of the old Confederacy. The rigidity in their old school approach to governance is self-limiting, and change of the forward-thinking variety seldom comes by design or without the suffering and pain of those who ultimately will it through struggle and sacrifice. Its an old story that keeps repeating itself. Once upon a time, the grand maestros over the regions orchestras of backward-ness were Dixiecrats. Now, its the ultra conservatives of the Republican Party. Despite the changeover in personnel, the content of their political performance hasnt changed much; nor has the audience that is attracted to their play. If you know Southern history, the present politics are distressingly reminiscent of the bad old days when Jim Crow was king and segregation now and forever went platinum, sanctioned by the state and espoused by moral bigots thumping their Bibles. These unmannerly attitudes and behaviors remain entrenched as rel-ics. They are artifacts of the dark side of Southern heritage, the Confederate flag principle among these. (If you think flying that flag is really about Southern heritage, you probably drink sweet ice tea.) These old tropes embody our worst inclinations. They are fertile ground for demagogues sowing seeds of fire. They know how to stir up a conflagration of hate and bigotry and reduce the Golden Rule to a pile of ash. No good ever comes from it. Of all the Southern states predisposed to take the low road on matters of justice, North Carolina stands out as historical anomaly to the contrary. It defied follow-ing, lemming-like, the pattern of political backwardness characteristic of its sister states. Historian V.O. Key reasoned this was because of the states lesser reliance on ye old plantation economy. He labeled the states business model a progressive plutocracy.Ž An article in The American Prospect by Chris Kromm and Sue Sturgis says the states electorate has long favored a pinch of moderation in its politicians, like Gov. Terry Sanford and others who called for racial reconciliation and progressive eco-nomic policies, even while black churches burned across the South. They champi-oned investment in public education, alli-ances with the business community to promote higher paying jobs and removal of barriers to racial equality. North Carolina was a beacon of hope for Southerners seeking a more enlight-ened path toward resolving racial issues. The state surely had its political warts, but compared to most Southern states, it was in stark contrast to the war in the region being waged by the white establishment on black people. Florida was right in there, too, doing its worst. In the first half of the 20th century, it had the highest number of lynchings per capita in the country. White mobs routine-ly targeted and burned black homes and communities (most famously, Rosewood and Ocoee). In the 60s, white racists added bombing and chemical warfare to their arsenal. In St. Augustine, the then-president of the Florida Hotel & Motel Association fended off black protesters in the hotels pool he managed by dumping muriatic acid into the water.k In neighborly Georgia, arch-segregationist Lester Maddox handed out auto-graphed ax handles as political souvenirs of his successful 66 campaign for gov-ernor. The Pickrick DrumsticksŽ were a euphemism for their intended use as bludgeons to dissuade three black students from Georgia Tech from sitting in and sampling the fried chicken at Maddoxs diner. So with this history in mind, it is sad to witness the sh utt ering of North Carolina s moderation by way of the states hard turn to the radical right, up-ending the progres-sive pragmatism of its more enlightened leadership. The states governor has signed a bill into law discriminating against gay and transgender people, dictating which rest-rooms they can use; and further, permits the state to usurp the authority of local governments to pass nondiscriminatory ordinances. Transgender people must use the bathrooms that match their gender at birth, presumably to be verified on entry by a police officer inspecting their genitals. As predictable as rain, states prone to the Souths infatuation with bigotry joined the bandwagon with equally offensive attempts to legalize discrimination, be it in the name of Christianity or homophobic fears „ and so many ways to get there, too. Thanks to the soldiers of righteousness, multiple versions of the Pastor Protection ActŽ are making the rounds in state legis-latures, making it illegal to forceŽ clergy to perform a same-sex wedding. Never mind the U.S. Constitution already takes care of that fearful possibility. Gov. Rick Scott signed Floridas version of the bill last month, demonstrating the breadth of his moral courage. Tennessees state Legislature did one even better, passing a bill declaring the Bible as the states official book. The gov-ernor refused to sign the bill but the state Legislature wont let that stand. Being on the wrong side of history is a Southern tradition. Q „ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

What is true, instead, is that reporting in most places is hard to do as a profession „ not the ad-selling on which it depends; not the managing of reporters and guiding of their efforts, on which it also depends; not keeping up with technology in new and dif-ferent venues; and not putting stockholders first, which is commonplace among corpo-rations that own newspapers and electronic media outlets. Ad sales, managing, presenting news in new ways, and money-making are easy to do, relatively. But good reporting is hard to do because it takes an unlikely tool box: moral indigna-tion, a willingness to be underpaid, a desire to know whats real in the behavior of pub-lic officials or the lives of private citizens of influence, and a hankering to write or pho-tograph the world as it appears on a given day in a single local place: a community. For the great majority of journalists, the work usually comes with very little recog-nition, especially at small papers. But its rewards are the rewards of any community lovers: Local life is richer and better, and sometimes more just, if they do their jobs well. As it turns out, good journalism is like politics: all of its local, as the late U.S. House Speaker, Rep. Tip ONeill, character-ized the American system of government. Finley Peter Dunne, the great Chicago journalist and writer of a century ago, noted that the point of the profession is to com-fort the afflicted and afflict the comfort-able.Ž The comment is funny. But it also contains a searing righteousness that good journalists maintain, even as they age. For all of those reasons, community reporting is as honorable and perhaps as patriotic a vocation as any in America, including military service or, say, teaching. All of this occurred to me the other day when a couple of journalists who just spent more than 20 years with little recognition in careers at the Charlotte Sun newspaper on the southwest coast „ circulation a relatively paltry 40,000 „ won the Pulit-zer Prize for editorial writing, the premier award in American journalism. Heres what happened. Prison guards at the Charlotte Correctional Institute beat a prisoner to death or watched it happen after he failed to turn off his light at the required time one evening in 2013. The incident was first reported in The Miami Herald and then picked up by a gutsy reporter for the Charlotte Sun, Adam Kreger. When officials wrapped the incident in a veil of secrecy, the Suns John Hackworth and Brian Gleason wrote a series of eight unsigned editorials representing the papers stand „ the first in January and the last in September of last year. It was community journalism at its finest, kicked off with this first sentence: On April 11, 2013, Matthew Walker, an inmate at Charlotte Correctional Institute, died. Today, almost two years later, we dont know the cause of his death or any real details of that fateful confrontation.Ž But the public had a right to know, and to see justice done, the Charlotte Sun insisted. And they never backed off that righteous insistence. With that body of work, the little local paper beat out The New York Times and The Baltimore Sun, whose editorial writers were also named finalists. For fierce, indignant editorials that demanded truth and change after the dead-ly assault of an inmate by corrections offi-cers,Ž the Pulitzer committee announced. Mr. Gleason, who wrote three of the eight editorials before wrapping up his 26-year journalism career in August and going to work as a Charlotte County spokesman, chatted with me about the Pulitzer, and about community journalism, just two days after the win, late last week. Let me share some of his comments.Some people have asked me how a small paper can get through the clutter (in competing for the Pulitzer) „ the two other finalists were The New York Freakin Times and The Baltimore Sun. Its hard for the most high-profile, talented people at the biggest papers in the country to win one. Some produce great work their whole careers and dont win a Pulitzer. But when you work at The New York Times, everyone assumes youre a good reporter. When you work at a community paper, you have to prove it.Ž And prove it they did. A great deal of community journalism, however, is never that dramatic or stark, he told me. Its not about gotcha and dragnet and deep undercover reporting. Its writing about people in your community, about what theyre doing, and at the same time policing the bad stuff and nudging people in the right direction when you think theyre going in the wrong direction.Ž Q Alabama a harbinger of Trump or Cruz election? BY BILL CORNWELLbcornwell@” oridaweekly.comI have glimpsed the future, and it is Alabama. For decades, that states governors mansion has been home to an astounding pro-cession of grifters, buffoons, xenophobes, homophobes, Bible-thumping hypocrites and Ku Klux Klan sympathizers. The cur-rent occupant is Robert Bentley, a Repub-lican who carries on in the not-so-grand tradition of his predecessors. Mr. Bentley is an Ichabod Crane lookalike who was elected in 2010 and then re-elected in 2014. In both campaigns, he stressed fiscal conservatism, family values, Christian faith and the sanctity of marriage (as long as said marriage involves a man and a woman). He also vowed to neuter safety-net programs like Medicaid and to generally make life miserable for undocumented immi-grants, the poor, the physically afflicted and minorities. Mr. Bentleys gubernatorial platform mirrors what Donald Trump and Ted Cruz propose on the national scene, and for this reason, those of us who do not reside in Alabama should pay heed to what is going on there. Mr. Bentley, a Scripture-quoting Baptist deacon, has stumbled badly in his second term, allowing his penis to trump his piety. It was recently revealed that the 73-year-old governor was dallying with a married female aide roughly 25 years his junior. Mr. Bentleys wife of 50 years sent him packing when she got wind of the romance. Secretly recorded, sexually explicit telephone conversations between the governor and his honey have surfaced. Mr. Bent-ley denies a physical relationship, insisting naughty chitchat was as far as it went. Zealots of the religious right, once the governors strongest supporters, dont care if it was just talk; they want the blasphemer impeached. Yet despite all the delicious-ly salacious hubbub, Mr. Bentleys saucy behavior is the least of Alabamas worries. A budget crisis, which the governor helped to create, threatens to bankrupt the state. The Republican-dominated legislature is dysfunctional and frozen in place. The Speaker of the House of Representatives awaits trial on 23 felony charges involving ethics violations, and, oh, the Republican lieutenant governor who would succeed Mr. Bentley if he is tossed from office is a known nincompoop. The real problem with Alabama is that the governor and the legislature have spent the past six years doing little more than rail-ing against same-sex marriage, concocting schemes aimed at disenfranchising minor-ity voters, kowtowing to big business and pandering to the worst instincts of the electorate. In 2011, HB 56 (backed strongly by Mr. Bentley) became law. It is the nastiest piece of immigration legislation in the United States. It is probably unconstitutional (a federal appeals court has invalidated large swaths of HB 56), but the laws support-ers couldnt care less. Its expressed pur-pose was to expel immigrants (primarily Latinos), and in that regard it succeeded grandly. In the laws first year, between 40,000 to 80,000 immigrants hightailed it out of Alabama, costing the state as much as $10 billion in lost income and tax revenues, according to a 2012 study conducted by the University of Alabama. At the core of HB 56 was the power of police to stop anyone, anywhere and demand proof of citizenship. It represented a chilling throwback to the Show me your papersŽ days in the old Soviet Bloc. On Nov. 16, 2011, a policeman near Tuscaloosa pulled over a rental car because of a tag issue. The driver was arrested because he could not produce the extensive docu-mentation required under HB 56. Embarrassment followed when it was learned that the arrested driver, a German, was a director at Mercedes-Benz who was in town to inspect his companys Alabama facility, which employs nearly 4,000 people and represents a $4 billion investment. Less than a month later, another automobile executive „ Ichiro Yada, a honcho at Honda „ was nabbed and detained by police for the exact same thing, despite his having reportedly produced an interna-tional drivers license, a valid passport and a U.S. work permit. Honda, which has invested more than $1.5 billion in the state, provides jobs for almost 5,000 Alabamians. In the wake of these two highly publicized arrests, a stupefied Mr. Bentley con-ceded that perhaps HB 56 needed some tweaking so as not to continue this pattern of harassment and imprisonment of non-American corporate titans who dared to set foot on Alabama soil. The people of (Alabama) have elected men and women who ignorantly turn down billions of dollars in health care for the poorest citizens, who routinely set up deals that provide tax riches to those who need it least at the expense of those who need it most, and who have thumbed their noses at the idea of separation of church and state „ unless the church is non-Christian, of course,Ž wrote Josh Moon, a truly fine columnist for the Montgomery Advertiser. Sounds an awful lot like what the rest of us might get if we elect either Mr. Trump or Sen. Cruz. And if that happens, we cant say Alabama didnt warn us.

PET TALESAnnual dog, cat vaccinations not always the answer BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickHow often do you have your dog or cat vaccinated? If youre still following an annual schedule, you may want to reconsider. Vaccines save lives; theres no doubt about it. They teach the immune system to recognize and fight off invading organ-isms that cause severe and sometimes fatal diseases, such as distemper and par-vovirus. But vaccinating too often brings potential health risks. Vaccine reactions are rare, but they include mild itching or swelling; vaccine sarcomas „ cancer at the injection site „ diagnosed in as many as 20,000 cats per year; autoimmune hemolytic anemia in dogs; and anaphylac-tic shock leading to death. Veterinarians have suspected for years that annual vaccinations for cats and dogs arent necessary, but large-scale, well-controlled duration-of-immunity studies didnt exist to prove it one way or the other. Now, however, published studies have shown that immunity provided by canine and feline core vaccines lasts for at least three years and often for a pets lifetime. What does this mean for your pet? Instead of a one-size-fits-all recommendation, your pets vaccina-tion schedule should be tailored to his individual needs, based on factors such as age, health status and prevalence of dis-ease in your area. In most cases, though, the fewer and less frequent vaccinations received, the better. Most pets need only what are known as core vaccines. They protect against the most common and most serious dis-eases. In dogs, the core vaccines are dis-temper, parvovirus, hepatitis and rabies. (Most states require dogs be vaccinated for rabies every three years.) In cats, core vaccines are panleukopenia, calicivirus, rhinotracheitis (herpesvirus) and rabies (if required by law). For puppies and kittens, current recommendations are to begin immuniza-tions no earlier than 6 to 8 weeks of age and repeat them every three to four weeks until the animal is 16 to 20 weeks old. To reduce the risk of maternal anti-bodies interfering with the vaccines, the final dose is usually administered when a pet is 14 to 16 weeks or older, followed by a booster vaccination at 1 year. After that, pets can be revaccinated every three years. An alternative to tri-ennial vaccinations is titers every three years. Titers, tests that determine whether the body has antibodies to disease, are reliable, and costs are typically compa-rable to those for vaccinations. Titers dont measure whether antibody levels are highŽ or low.Ž Any measur-able titer to a specific antigen means youve got immune memory cells for that antigen,Ž says veterinary immunol-ogy expert Jean Dodds, DVM. Work with your veterinarian to determine which vaccinations are appropriate for your dog or cat, based on lifestyle and risk. For instance, outdoor cats benefit from the noncore vaccine for feline leu-kemia because they have a greater chance of exposure to the disease. On the dog side, a dog in Penn sylv ania or Wisconsin who hikes in the woods frequently with his owner may be a candidate for the non-core Lyme disease vaccine, unlike a dog who lives in a high-rise in Chicago. Those noncore vaccines, recommended only for animals at high risk, are the exception to the every three yearsŽ rule. If theyre not given annually, then immunity really will be lost,Ž says Ronald Schultz, DVM, an internal medicine spe-cialist and professor of pathobiological sciences at the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine in Madi-son, Wis. Those noncore vaccines dont cause the immune system to maintain immunologic memory.Ž Finally, just because your pet doesnt need annual vaccinations doesnt mean you can skip an annual exam for him. Pets age more rapidly than humans, and an annual exam is important for catching problems early.

Indiantown Road, Jupiter Next to Harmony Animal HospitalTwo convenient locations: Abacoa: 5430 Military Trail, Suite 64, Jupiter Next to McDonalds in the Abacoa Shopping Center Since 2008, at least 125 missing seniors were safely recovered as a direct result of someone reading a highway sign and calling it in. But that figure is probably much higher since people dont neces-sarily volunteer how they found the senior when they call in. In all, 1,260 Silver Alerts have been issued with most missing drivers recovered safely. As time passes after someone goes missing, state law enforcement expands the range of the electronic signs in the area where the missing driver was last seen to account for driving time. The signs remain in effect for six hours. The missing persons picture is also displayed at Lottery termi-nals. A community wide BOLOŽ (be on the lookout) is issued through the media. After a missing senior is recovered, health care professionals at local memory disorder centers contact the families and caregivers by phone and in person if possible. They provide information, resources and rec-ommendations for handling aging-related memory disorders such as Alzheimers, the most common form of dementia. For some seniors who are recovered safely and their caregivers, a Silver Alert can be a wake-up call. Some may be just beginning to see signs of dementia and it can start conversa-tions about how to best deal with memory impairment going forward and issues such as quitting driving, in-home care or finding an assisted living facility. In some cases, yes,Ž a Silver Alert can be a wake-up call, said Sunny Rosbrugh, prac-tice director of Lee Physician Group Mem-ory Care, which handles Silver Alert follow-ups for Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades counties. In other cases there is still a degree of denial that goes along with fam-ily caregivers and the patient.Ž Ms. Rosbrugh has found that most people went missing on the way to complete a sim-ple errand such as going to the bank, post office, or to pick up medication. Sometimes patients are recovered far from Southwest Florida. One was recovered in Texas, anoth-er in Georgia, another in the Florida Keys. Law enforcement is very good at working with several agencies to track where-abouts,Ž she said. Lost on foot Law enforcement and elder advocates say there are even greater instances of seniors who wander away from home on foot or even in a wheelchair. Theyre work-ing with state agencies this year to expand Silver Alert protocols to include a Lost on Foot program that gives local law enforce-ment another tool to find the missing. We have found that a majority, probably 50 percent of people now actually go miss-ing from a caregivers home on foot and they are usually a mile or two miles from their house,Ž said Lt. Kevin OBrien with the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office in an informational video. He encourages caregivers to call as soon as they find out a senior with memory prob-lems has gone missing, ideally within the first five minutes or less. Alzheimers Community Care, a nonprofit covering Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie counties, helped develop Silver Alert training for law enforcement agencies. Its taking the lead in expanding the Lost on Foot program as well, with the program now being piloted in the three-county area. Several officers respond to look for a person reported missing. They also call 211, the gen-eral assistance hotline, to spread the word among other local agencies. We knew it was a problem. We just didnt know how bad it was,Ž said CEO Mary Barnes. Now theyre collecting that data, and were becoming more aware of the incidents.Ž The Department of Elder Affairs estimates that more than 510,000 individuals in Florida are living with Alzheimers disease and related dementias, and that 60 percent of Alzheimers patients will wander at least once. The need for these programs continues to rise,Ž said spokesperson Ashley Cham-bers, with the population of those 60 or older in Florida, now 4.8 million, expected to nearly double by 2030. Lost and found Memory-impaired drivers continue to be recovered every month after Silver Alerts are issued: On March 22, a 79-year-old woman last seen in Lauderhill, was recovered in West Palm Beach. On March 4, a 79-year-old man last seen in Port Charlotte was recovered in Satellite Beach. Last September, a 90-year-old Fort Myers man was recovered near his home. I think its a wonderful thing,Ž said Naples resident Dorothy Collier, 88, about Silver Alerts. Last year on the morning of November 30, her husband Paul went to fill a prescrip-tion at Walgreens only about a quarter mile from home and didnt return. He ended up being recovered by the Florida Highway Patrol in Fort Myers that night. He didnt have a phone on him or GPS. At some point, someone had written out directions for him to get home, which he had on him but wasnt able to follow. He had experienced memory loss before but his condition was undiagnosed at that point. It was getting dark already and the police got a call that this couple were riding down, they saw the Silver Alert on I-75 and they noticed it was the same plate as the car in front of them,Ž Ms. Collier said. He had been to Fort Lauderdale and he didnt even remember. And he was just try-ing to get home and couldnt quite get it.Ž After the incident, he followed up with his doctor and was diagnosed with dementia. They decided he would quit driving, so Ms. Collier is the chauffeur these days. Silver Alert is funded by a state grant through the Department of Elder Affairs, $190,000 as the program was just getting started. This years grant was $51,000. The program is a partnership that includes Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the lead agency, Elder Affairs, the Department of Transpor-tation, and local police and sheriffs departments.

and miraculous stirrings of soul and conscience are commonplace. Past campaigns confirm that while head-scratching crises of the day grab headlines, they invariably pass, and they rarely are a dagger to the heart of a can-didacy. Neither Donald Trumps strange obsession with Megyn Kelly nor Ted Cruzs alleged philandering nor Bernie Sanders hippie-dippie past nor Hill-ary Clintons unusual relationship with hubby Bill will be their undoing. Yet in every presidential election, and 2016 is no exception, tripwires lurk in the weeds. Once engaged, these trip-wires have staying power, and that is where honest danger lies. All candidates have their own peculiar set of booby traps. (Think Michael Dukakis in 1988 and his prison-furlough program in Massa-chusetts; the swiftboating of John Kerry in 2004; George H.W. Bush and his gee-whiz amazement in 1992 when he dis-covered that grocery stores employed nifty gadgets known as price scanners.) Some game changers play out over the long haul, others stand ready to deto-nate at a moments notice. The common characteristic is their ability to sabotage political aspirations. In that vein, what follows are issues and controversies „ this elections trip-wires and booby traps, if you will „ that should give pause to the remaining presidential candidates and their staffs. First, the Democrats. HILLARY CLINTON O HER ACOLYTES, THE FUROR OVER Ms. Clintons handling of sensi-tive emails on a private server installed in her home while she was secretary of state is noth-ing more than a continuation of Clinton scandal-mongering that has dragged on for more than a quarter of a century. Clinton enthusiasts file the email contretemps in the drawer that also holds Whitewater, Travelgate and the Vince Foster murder conspiracy theory. On the opposing side, the partisans on the Fox News Channel and conservative talk radio already have indicted, tried and convicted HRC and are now fitting her for an orange jumpsuit. The email scandal, they allege, marks a bridge too far for Ms. Clinton, who they insist has committed acts of high treason. For her part, Ms. Clinton haughtily dismisses questions about the FBIs scrutiny of her emails. She portrays it as little more than a benign security review.Ž To hear her tell it, the email brouhaha is no more consequential than a routine credit check. Theres nothing to it,Ž she flatly declared during a recent appearance on The View.Ž Ms. Clintons flippancy aside, there very well could be some-thing to it. There were published reports not long ago that more than 12 dozen FBI agents „ 147, to be exact „ had been assigned to the matter. This sent anti-Clinton zealots into frenzied choruses of, I told you so; shes guilty or there wouldnt be that many agents involved.Ž Later accounts, which received much less currency, revised the number down-ward, from 147 to 12. A veteran criminal defense attorney who specializes in federal offenses told me that, based on his experience, Ms. Clinton sounds like someone who is whistling past the graveyard.Ž (This attorney requested anonymity for two reasons. He is a longtime Democrat, and he has made financial contributions to Ms. Clintons campaign.) I have absolutely no inside information regarding this investigation. None,Ž he made clear. But from what Ive read and heard, I would be somewhat surprised if she is indicted or if the FBI makes a criminal referral. But this is serious stuff, regardless of what Hillary and her minions say. If I had a client who was similarly situated, I would advise him or her to be prepared for anything, up to and including an indict-ment and a trial.Ž A factor complicating Ms. Clintons circumstance is the vaguely analogous criminal filing that was lodged against David Petraeus, the venerated Army general who orchestrated the successful troop surge in Iraq and later served as director of the CIA. Mr. Petraeus pleaded guilty last year to a misdemeanor charge of mishan-dling classified material. Mr. Petraeus plea deal kept him from prison; he received two years of probation and a $100,000 fine instead. Ms. Clintons detractors „ and, brother, she has oodles „ insist her mis-cues are far worse than anything Mr. Petraeus did, which was to hand over highly sensitive and classified docu-ments to his mistress/biographer. These voluble naysayers wail that Mr. Petraeus was treated far too harshly by Presi-dent Obamas Justice Department and that Mr. Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch will accord Ms. Clinton preferential treatment so as not to derail her pursuit of the presidency. Republicans will surely cry foul if Ms. Clinton is not eventually dragged into the dock and forced to explain herself in a court of law. Anne M. Tompkins, the U.S. attorney who handled the Petraeus case, has said there is no equivalency when it comes to the Clinton and Petraeus situations. I oversaw the prosecution of Gen. Petraeus, and I can say, based on the known facts, this comparison (to Ms. Clintons case) has no merit,Ž Ms. Tompkins wrote last year in an op-ed column that ran in USA Today. The key element that distinguishes Secretary Clintons email retention practices from Petraeus sharing of classified informa-tion is that Petraeus knowingly (Ms. Tompkins emphasis) engaged in unlaw-ful conduct, and that was the basis of his criminal liability.Ž Ms. Tompkins went on to say Ms. Clinton is not being investigated for knowingly sending or receiving classi-fied materials improperly.Ž Those who feel Mr. Petraeus was done dirty by the Obama Justice Depart-ment probably are unaware of a Washington Post story earlier this year which revealed that career prosecutors (who are not political appointees) wanted to file a raft of felony charges against the former four-star general, who „ before the scandal broke „ was mulling a pres-idential run of his own as a Republican. These prosecutors presented their findings to FBI Director James Comey and then-Attorney General Eric Holder. Their presentation included felony charges: lying to the FBI and violating a section of the Espionage Act,Ž The Post disclosed. A conviction on either car-ried potentially years in prison.Ž The career prosecutors were ultimately overruled by Mr. Holder, leaving them angry and convinced Mr. Petraeus had avoided the slammer because of his war-hero status and because the politi-cally attuned honchos who run the Jus-tice Department had little stomach for a protracted trial that would commingle national security with salacious tales of the former generals sexual adventur-ism. These career lawyers further groused that the Petraeus plea deal set a prec-edent of unacceptable leniency in cases involving classified documents. If Ms. Clinton is not indicted or charged with a crime, an FBI report that says she was sloppy and negligent in handling State Department emails could be politically devastating nonetheless. Such a finding would raise a host of questions about her judgment, admin-istrative abilities and competence as a steward of state secrets. Ms. Tompkins concluded in her op-ed piece that Ms. Clintons decision to use a personal server, while perhaps not criminal, was at the very least regret-table.Ž If Ms. Clinton is indicted or otherwise criminally implicated, Democrats will have one holy mess on their hands. It would be a disaster of such magnitude that it probably could only be partially ameliorated by Vice President Joe Biden plunging into the race. That Mr. Biden would have any enthusiasm for entering a presidential campaign so late in the game „ and as a stand-in, at that „ is debatable. Should the Republican nominee be Donald Trump (someone Democrats view as eminently beatable), Mr. Biden might be more inclined to give it a go. What must truly terrify the pooh-bahs at the Democratic National Committee is that FBI Director Comey insists he feels no pressure whatsoever to wrap up the inquiry before this summers politi-cal conventions. The urgency is to do it well and promptly,Ž he said in a speech delivered on April 4 in Buffalo. And well comes first.Ž If the FBI recommends legal action against Ms. Clinton after the Democratic convention has ended, the Democrats are in big trouble,Ž Dr. Joseph Uscinski, a political scientist at the University of Miami, told me. If a critical report comes before the convention convenes, it is still big trouble, but they can prob-ably deal with it.Ž It would be an extraordinary circumstance, to say the least, if a major polit-ical party handed its nomination to someone who is under active investiga-tion by the FBI. If Ms. Clinton wins the nomination (which seems likely), escapes the long arm of the law and makes it to the gen-eral election, she will face withering criticism about her role in the failed intervention by the United States in Libya. For much of the Republican base, the red-meat issue when it comes to Ms. Clinton and Libya is the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the diplomatic com-pound in Benghazi, which resulted in the deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. Ms. Clinton did much to stanch the bleeding in this area when she testi-fied for 11 hours last October before the Senate Select Committee on Benghazi. Republican committee members who hoped to discredit and embarrass Ms. Clinton fell short of their goal. A more serious threat to her candidacy than the tragedy at Benghazi are the fingerprints she left on the deci-sion by President Obama to become involved in Libya in 2011 and overturn the 42-year reign of the odious Muam-mar el-Qaddafi.

Ms. Clinton bases much of her presidential quest on foreign-policy experi-ence she acquired during her four years as secretary of state. There has yet to be a full examination of her role in goading President Obama to wield American power in Libya, which was one of the defining moments of her tenure at the State Department. Most of the presidents senior national security team advised him to steer clear of Libya. Ms. Clinton argued stren-uously to the contrary, and, in the end, her lonely yet powerfully persistent voice carried the day. Robert Gates, Mr. Obamas secretary of defense at the time, later said Ms. Clinton was the pivotal player in the Libyan decision. It was (Ms.) Clintons support that put the ambivalent president over the line,Ž according to The New York Times, which cited Mr. Gates as the source of that assertion. We see now that Ms. Clintons instincts were wildly off-base. Libya has become a sanctuary and training ground for terrorists (ISIS in particular). By any measure, it is a failed state, mired in a perpetual cycle of chaos, violence and political anarchy. Some five years after the American intrusion, there is wide agreement that the policy toward Libya was a frightful miscalculation. Worse still for Ms. Clin-ton, Libya echoes the second Iraq War „ both of which featured a headlong rush by the United States to involve itself militarily in a Middle Eastern country without giving serious thought to the consequences that would accrue after a brutal dictator was deposed. As a senator from New York, Ms. Clinton voted in favor of George W. Bushs Iraq misadventure. Throw that wrongheaded vote into a pot with Ms. Clintons screw up in Libya, and you have the makings of an arresting argu-ment that says her foreign policy cre-dentials arent nearly as formidable as she would have us believe. Even President Obama, a man not naturally predisposed to admitting mis-takes, can find no silver in the lining of the Libyan cloud, telling The Atlantic in a remarkably candid interview that Libya is a mess.Ž In private, the maga-zine reported, Mr. Obama is more forth-right, calling Libya a s--t show.Ž Despite all this, Ms. Clinton still insists, with a straight face, that it is too soonŽ to pronounce the Libyan foray a failure. As president, Bill Clinton famously, and to his detriment, quibbled over the meaning of the word is.Ž Perhaps Ms. Clinton stands ready to do likewise with the word failure.Ž BERNIE SANDERS HE GOOD NEWS FOR BERNIE SANDERS is that he is faring much better in his race against Ms. Clin-ton than anyone „ including the 74-year-old Vermont senator himself „ expected. The bad news is that he is faring much better than anyone expected. Mr. Sanders raises more money than Ms. Clinton and often bests her in pri-maries and caucuses, but his out-of-the-blue transformation from interest-ing but unelectable fringe candidate to legitimate contender has revealed a significant shortcoming: He apparently did not plan for this level of success. The spectacular arc of the Sanders campaign calls to mind a splendid movie released in 1972, The Candi-date,Ž which traces the travails of a dreamy idealogue (played by Robert Redford) who seeks to become a U.S. senator from California. Mr. Redfords character seemingly has no chance of winning at the onset of the race. As such, he regards the campaign as little more than an opportunity to espouse and spread wide his liberal orthodoxy. An unlikely confluence of events, however, propels him to victory. On election night, as his supporters and staff celebrate wildly, the stunned candidate pulls his campaign manager into a quiet space. What do we do now?Ž Mr. Redford asks in the films memorable closing line. Mr. Sanders might be asking himself that very question, for while he marches on, his campaign „ on the most impor-tant levels, the ones that really matter „ staggers. Heres a notable example of what is going on with Mr. Sanders. Not long ago he sat for an interview with the edito-rial board of the New York Daily News. These meetings are de rigueur, and they rarely generate real news, unless you are Bernie Sanders or Donald Trump, both of whom managed to turn what should have been appearances of little note into happenings that raised funda-mental questions about their fitness to be president. (Mr. Trumps stultifying performance came when he met with the editorial board of the The Washington Post.) Conventional wisdom has been that the most glaring weakness lashed to Mr. Sanders presidential bid is his proud pronouncement of himself as a demo-cratic socialist,Ž but as it turns out, this designation does little to disturb his base voters, who are drawn, for the most part, from the left wing of the Democratic Party. Recent events have revealed that Mr. Sanders Achilles heel is not his social-ist designation but rather his lamentable and stunning lack of substance „ even on issues that are at the core of his cam-paign, such as breaking up large banks, providing free tuition at public colleg-es and universities and addressing the gnawing problem of income inequality. If one studies the transcript of Mr. Sanders meeting with the Daily News editors, it is hard to dispute the assess-ment rendered by liberal-leaning col-umnist Jonathan Capehart. The more I read the transcript,Ž Mr. Capehart said, the more it became clear that the candidate for the Demo-cratic presidential nomination doesnt know much beyond his standard stump speech about breaking up the banks and how he had the good judgment to vote against the Iraq War in 2002.Ž Mr. Sanders gets a thumbs-up for his noŽ vote on the Iraq War, but he can ride that horse only so far. Both on the campaign trail and in interviews he dis-plays little understanding of or interest in foreign policy and national defense. It is woefully obvious he has spent minimal time pondering Americas place in the world. Mr. Trump has been justifiably excoriated for his shallow-ness in foreign affairs, and it appears Mr. Sanders may be in for a similar shel-lacking down the road. When the New York editors wanted to know what Mr. Sanders would do as president if American forces captured an ISIS commander, he said, Imprison him ... and try to get as much informa-tion out of him.Ž Would he detain ISIS prisoners at Guantanamo Bay or at another facility? Actually, I havent thought about it a whole lot,Ž said the curiously cavalier candidate. Mr. Sanders also proved to be unpersuasive and muddled on some of his bread-and-b utter is sues, fumbling explanations of dubious remedies by resorting to tired bromides. Along those lines came this exchange. Q: How do you go about (breaking up big banks)? A: How you go about doing it is having legislation passed, or giving the author-ity to the secretary of the treasury to determine under Dodd-Frank that these banks are a danger to the economy over the problem of too big to fail. Q: But do you think that the (Federal Reserve) now has that authority? A: Well, I dont know if the Fed has it. But I think the administration can have it. The editors pressed on, wanting to know if Mr. Sanders was implying a president could, on his own, order the breakup of big banks. A: No, I did not say we would order. I did not say we would order. The presi-dent is not a dictator. Q: OK. You would then leave it to JPMorgan Chase or the others to figure out how to break it. Im not quite ƒ A: You would determine ... if a bank is too big to fail to exist. And then you have the secretary of the treasury and some people who know a lot about this, making that determination. If the determination is that Goldman Sachs or JPMorgan Chase is too big to fail, yes, they will be broken up. Oh, now we get it. The treasury secretary and a gaggle of unidentified people who know a lot about thisŽ will fig-ure out how to implement one of the cornerstones of Mr. Sanders econom-ic message. And perhaps the Federal Reserve can play a role but perhaps it cant. Mr. Sanders isnt sure. Mr. Sanders candidacy is the polar opposite of Mr. Trumps in philosophy and ideals, but they share a striking similarity. They are adept at telling their supporters precisely what they want to hear. But they fall embarrassingly short when they attempt to explain how they will make good on their promises. And now, the Republicans. DONALD TRUMP HERE TO BEGIN? THE MAESTRO OF mayhem has more negatives and more booby traps than any other candidate, Democrat or Republican. Most of these deficiencies have been litigated ad nauseam, so we shall explore an esoteric, yet volatile, subject: emi-nent domain. Eminent domain is the process by which governments or their designated agents seize private property for public use. Whoever exercises the power of eminent domain is required to pay a fair price. In many cases, those whose prop-erty is to be seized have no interest in selling, regardless of how much money is offered. Under eminent domain they have no choice. A GOP strategist told me he hears JOSEPH SOHM / SHUTTERSTOCK Republican presidential candidates Donald J. Trump and U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz clap at a CNN Republican presidential debate in Las V egas last December. Both have potential landmine triggers on the way to the presidency.

increasing numbers of voters within his party carping about Mr. Trumps unapologetic embrace of the controver-sial legal doctrine. If the Republican convention in July is deadlocked and every delegates vote is precious, peripheral but highly charged issues such as eminent domain could be crucial. That bodes ill for Mr. Trump, who probably will arrive at the conven-tion lacking the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the nomination. As it stands, Mr. Trump already has paid a significant political price for tying himself to eminent domain. A poll taken last February by The Des Moines Register disclosed that 60 percent of those who participated in the Iowa Republican Caucuses, which Mr. Trump lost to Ted Cruz, held an unfa-vorable view of eminent domain. It is quite likely the focus on the issue is why the real estate mogul failed to win (in Iowa),Ž Forbes.com said. Chances are attacks on Trumps support of emi-nent domain in a general election would be just as effective, especially if the Democratic nominee, whether it is Hill-ary Clinton or Bernie Sanders, leans on the issue. One reason why it would be effective is because eminent domain disproportionately impacts poor and minority communities.Ž Few people „ outside of law students slogging through their snooze-inducing courses on property „ pay much heed to eminent domain. But libertarian-leaning Republicans and independents, in particular, give it much thought. To these interested and highly motivated voters, eminent domain is government overreach on steroids. It is not widely discussed, but Mr. Trumps signal campaign promise „ to build an impenetrable wall along the Mexican border „ would be a colossal eminent domain project. (The Keystone Pipeline, a pet project for many GOP lawmakers, also would require the pro-miscuous use of eminent domain.) According to the Government Accountability Office, federal and tribal lands comprise 632 miles, or approxi-mately 33 percent, of the nearly 2,000 total (Mexican) border miles.Ž The GAO goes on to say that, Private and state-owned lands constitute the remaining 67 percent of the border.Ž The Great Wall of Trump would gobble up untold miles of private and state-controlled real estate. Mr. Trump says the Mexican government will foot the bill for the construction and the land-acquisition costs. Trumpites believe him. Trump agnostics shout hooey.Ž There is firm constitutional grounding for eminent domain. The Fifth Amend-ment explicitly states the government can take private property for public use as long as just compensationŽ is paid. The framers of the Constitution foresaw times when governments would need to acquire private property for public proj-ects such as roads, essential government buildings and schools. A border wall might well fit under the original intent of eminent domain. Some might be tempted to praise Mr. Trump for standing firm in his support for eminent domain, but this is no pro-file in courage on his part. He can hardly run from something he has made use of throughout his long career as a devel-oper and builder. Mr. Trump in 1997 found himself ensnared in a notorious and highly pub-licized eminent domain boondoggle. He wanted to build a limousine parking lot for his casino in Atlantic City. A three-story house on the Boardwalk stood in his way. The house belonged to an elderly firebrand named Vera Coking, who refused to sell her property to Mr. Trump. It was classic David vs. Goliath, and Mrs. Coking „ a razor-tongued widow who favored flamboyant attire and peered at the world through enormous rhinestone-studded glasses „ quickly became a media darling, which irritated Mr. Trump no end. Cities have the right to condemn for the good of the city,Ž he said. Every-body coming into Atlantic City sees this terrible house instead of staring at beautiful fountains and beautiful other things that would be good.Ž (A note: There were no plans to festoon Mr. Trumps parking lot with beautiful fountainsŽ or beautiful other things.Ž It was to be your basic, garden-variety parking lot.) Hes a maggot, a cockroach and a crumb,Ž was Mrs. Cokings pithy appraisal of her billionaire antagonist. Mr. Trump enlisted the good offices of the New Jersey Casino Reinvestment Development Authority, which invoked eminent domain on his behalf in an attempt to seize the Coking homestead. Mrs. Coking fought back, squaring off against Mr. Trump in court, where she eventually prevailed. The spectacle of Mr. Trump trying to give the bums rush to a widow woman was merely unseemly 19 years ago. Today, it is a political poison pill. Since that episode, the United States Supreme Court, in a 2005 decision (Kelo v. City of New London), has cemented the right of governments to seize property for private investment. In Kelo, the court held that New London, Conn., could legally take private homes and businesses in order to proceed with a large private rede-velopment project, which consisted of hotels, residences and a research center. That decision remains one of the most hotly debated rulings in recent memory. Shortly after the Kelo ruling, 80 percent of Americans who were polled said they opposed the courts action. Mr. Trump, in 2005, announced that he supported the ruling 100 percent.Ž Dr. Uscinski, the University of Miami political scientist, told Florida Weekly Mr. Trumps stance on eminent domain is consistent with his overall business philosophy, which tends to be highly aggressive and often invasive. Hes a corporatist, like Mussolini,Ž he said. Eminent domain is a daunting proposition for Mr. Trump. Its complicated, fraught with emotion, little understood and hard to explain. Those are the sorts of issues that give campaign managers nightmares. Should eminent domain play any part at all in waylaying Mr. Trumps presi-dential ambitions, it would be exqui-sitely karmic, for it would mean that Vera Coking had once again stuck it to The Donald. TED CRUZ HERE IS A DISTINCT ADVANTAGE IN having Donald Trump as your principal opponent in a political contest. Mr. Trumps sheer out-rageousness overshadows simi-larly bizarre doings on the part of his opponents. Such is the case with Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. In terms of off-the-wall musings and proposals, Mr. Cruz bows to no one, but the publicity generated by Mr. Trump often obscures the Texans peculiar notions. The specter of terrorism will be front and center in the general election, and if Mr. Cruz is the nominee he will have a ton of explaining to do. What makes Mr. Cruzs position untenable is that legions of people who are well versed in combating terrorism say his ideas are half-baked and possibly dangerous. On my worst day, I think I know a little bit more about terrorist activities in New York City than Mr. Cruz on his best day „ the guy hasnt been in Con-gress in the last year, hes been running for president,Ž said Bill Bratton, New York Citys police commissioner. What information, intelligence or expertise does he have about the issue of ter-rorism? So when you dont know what youre talking about, the best bet is to shut up. So my advice to Mr. Cruz is to shut up.Ž Lest anyone label Mr. Brattons comments as the partisan sniping of some-one who serves under a Democratic mayor, bear in mind that Republican Rudy Giuliani named him commissioner in 1994. Mr. Brattons acerbic observations were in response to Mr. Cruzs idea that more police officers should be assigned to Muslim neighborhoods so these areas could be secured.Ž Mr. Cruz has yet to explain what securedŽ „ a loaded word, for sure „ precisely means. John Miller, the NYPDs deputy commissioner of intelligence and counter-terrorism and a former assistant direc-tor of the FBI, accused Mr. Cruz of campaigning through fear and using that as leverage, and then giving advice to police to be the cudgel of that fear.Ž Mr. Miller compared Mr. Cruzs policing proposal to the Japanese intern-ment, the Red Scare and McCarthyism (and) torture after 9/11.Ž Singling out Muslims for special „ and perhaps constitutionally question-able „ scrutiny could make matters worse, Mr. Cruzs numerous critics charge. What is possible, and is indeed likely, is that the U.S. will completely alien-ate its Muslim population with coercive and regressive policies,Ž according to a column in the Chicago Tribune that was co-authored by the director and execu-tive director of the University of Chicago Project on Security and Terrorism. As elections approach, we must avoid the temptation to allow fear to overwhelm our commitment to our values.Ž Mr. Cruz also received nearly universal condemnation from military leaders when he said his strategy to fight ISIS is to carpet-bomb them into oblivion. I dont know if sand can glow in the dark, but were going to find out.Ž If presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz was listening to top military brass, he would know that his proclaimed tac-tic to defeat the Islamic State group wouldnt work,Ž the Air Force Times asserted in an editorial. Indiscriminate bombing, where we dont care if were killing innocents or combatants, is just inconsistent with our values,Ž said Army Gen. Sean McFar-land, who heads the coalition against ISIS in Syria and Iraq. Its what the Russians have been accused of doing in parts of northwest Syria. Right now we have the moral high ground, and I think thats where we need to stay.Ž Carpet-bombing is not effective for the operation were actually executing because were using precision-guided munitions on a regular basis,Ž added Gen. Charles Brown, commander of U.S. Air Forces Central Command. With security and terrorism looming large, Mr. Cruz could have a tough time convincing general-election vot-ers that his ideas, unless they are radi-cally revised or retracted, are somehow superior to those set forth by military experts and law-enforcement officials. JOHN KASICH HAT IS THE VICTORY OF A cat on a hot tin roof?Ž Tennessee Williams wrote. Just staying on it, I guessƒ.Ž Ohio Gov. John Kasich is like a cat on the hot tin roof. His major accomplishment during the pri-maries and caucuses, other than inject-ing a modicum of civility and serious-ness into the race, has been simply staying in the competition. For all his effort, Mr. Kasich has but a single victory (that coming in his home state), and it is mathematically impossi-ble for him to acquire enough delegates to win the nomination through the pri-maries and caucuses. But because this has been such a crazy, unpredictable contest, Mr. Kasich is hanging around, hoping the convention in Cleveland deadlocks over Mr. Trump and Mr. Cruz and turns to him as a compromise can-didate. Should lightning strike and Mr. Kasich somehow becomes the nominee, numer-ous polls show he is the one Republican who could defeat both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. That must surely figure into his steadfast refusal to bow out. What has Mr. Kasich to lose by staying in the race? In the short term, there is little downside as long as there is money in the bank. But taking a longer view, Mr. Kasichs strategy could come back to haunt him. At 63 years of age, Mr. Kasich is young enough to run again in 2020, if a Demo-crat wins the White House this year. His strategy of hanging to the bitter end has angered many Republicans. More than a few believe his doggedness pulled just enough votes from other candidates to make Donald Trump the frontrunner. If Mr. Kasichs goal, as some believe, is to make his way onto the ticket as a vice presidential choice, the enmity he has engendered within his party will work against him. (Those who know the prickly and headstrong Mr. Kasich well have a hard time envisioning him taking a backseat to the likes of Donald Trump or Ted Cruz.) Further, Republicans who regard Mr. Kasich as an egomaniacal spoiler, have long memories, and that will not serve him well come 2020. Mr. Kasich may have no plans to run again for president, and he may have no interest in the vice presidency. Who knows? For the time being, though, he appears content in his role as the GOPs version of a cat on a hot tin roof.

BEHIND THE WHEELJaguar’s new XF is a wild, rocking sports car, but is still an adultJaguar infuses driving passion into every car, even a responsible midsize sedan. How else can you explain a supercharged 380 horsepower rocket ship that has more trunk space than a Toyota Camry? The all-new 2016 Jaguar XF is a design that has truly come full circle. When the first generation debuted back in 2007, it represented a radical new styling direction for the company that influenced everything from the revital-ized XJ flagship sedan to new products like the F-Type sports car. So when it came time to redesign the XF, its largest influence was itself. This round-trip effect makes it a bit tough to distinguish the new car from its predecessor. They share the bold rectangular grille and the multi-creased hood that looks like a furrowed brow. But if the two cars were parked side-by-side, the change would be obvious. The new XF is free from a lot of the orna-mentation of its predecessor. The side vents are less pronounced, the taillights are inspired by the sporty F-Type, and less chrome is needed overall. Basically, the old car looked like a worthy guest at the country club, but the new design has the confidence to feel like a member. Inside, the soul of the original XF is retained in the nifty way it greets the driver. The start/ stop butt on still pulsates with a red glow like a heartbeat; the vents make an electronic reveal from the dash; and the circular gear selector still rises from the center con-sole. The difference is the old car did it at a leisurely pace that felt like it was expecting applause every time. The new XF does it with a swiftness that makes these features the premium novelty they should have always been. Overall, theres a lot of technology assembled in a wood and metal package thats very pleasing to the eye. Making sure that this car keeps form with its function sometimes means overcom-plicating the features. For example, the optional seat coolers require a three-step process when other companies uti-lize a one-step knob. Other times tech-nology can overthink a situation. The start/stop feature will want to shut off the car when it is placed in park. Since this is also instinctual for the driver to do, theres a brief tango between human and machine to shut down the car. None of these are fatal flaws. They are just reminders that luxury cars come with a lot of integrated technology these days. So anyone who buys an XF or comparable machine will have an edu-cation in the cars idiosyncrasies. One part that requires no learning to love is the motor. All XFs currently come with a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 (a four-cylinder diesel is on the way.) Our tester was upgraded from the $53K base model to the S line that starts at $63,995. This comes with more driving features, including boosting the motor by an extra 40 horsepower for a total of 380 hp. Either model can have all-wheel drive added for another $3K. Our car was quiet in everyday situations, but rumbles like a big V8 when-ever the right foot mashes the accel-erator. Theres so much power and the suspension is so competent, that it is easy to approach triple-digit speed on the highway without realizing it. Thats likely why Jaguar started installing a digi-tal speed limiter a few years ago. This is a handy feature that allows the designation of any maximum desired speed, and in this swift cat, it can be quite necessary. But it is not just the drivetrain that makes this a performance car. The steer-ing wheel is shared with the F-Type and the sport front bucket seats can be adjust-ed to sit low. So this can feel like a true sports car ... only if the rear view mirror didnt always give an instant reminder of all that room in the back seat. Thats the true heart of this Jaguar. The new XF has done a lot of growing up, but it hasnt lost its wild kitty soul. It is the sports car for those forced to be an adult. Q s f p o s l n myles KORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

To b is d u The c on t Mothers Day Mammography Special $65 3-D Screening Mammogram* HEALTHY LIVING Never underestimate the pain of losing a petEditors note: This column ran previously.Gina blinked twice and did a double take. The neighbors new dog looked just like Fluffy. But, of course it wasnt Fluffy. (Details have been changed.) Gina fought to hold back tears. Her beloved poodle, Fluffy, had died six months ago after a protracted illness, and Gina had been heartsick ever since. She couldnt stop crying, and had lost her zest for so many of the activities shed previously enjoyed. Her husband, Phil, had been just as upset about losing Fluffy at first, but hed bounced back a lot quicker. Lately, it seemed as if Phil was becoming increas-ingly more frustrated with her. He was too diplomatic to say: Enough already,Ž but everything about his demeanor and tone of voice implied that he believed it was about time she let go of the sadness. He wanted to enjoy himself, and Ginas somber mood was dragging him down. Phil had a hard time understanding the depth of Ginas feeling for this crea-ture. Fluffy had been her special confi-dante, and a steadfast loyal companion during the lonely times before shed met Phil. No matter how rough a day shed had, frolicking with Fluffy had always brought her to smiles. Gina and Phil never had children together. When she told others that Fluffy had been her beloved child, she knew they just didnt understand. Even though some of her friends would look at her sympathetically, she knew they were thinking: How can you equate feelings for an animal with the love of a child?Ž One acquaintance had seemed almost belligerent when Gina had con-fided how much she missed Fluffy. Come on, Gina. Its just a dog. But, then again, I guess if youve never had children of your own, you might equate the two.Ž It took every bit of restraint for Gina to keep from smacking her. Gina had eventually stopped talking about Fluffy to some of her girlfriends because of reactions like this. If others were becoming exasperated with her, she didnt care. Fluffy had been her baby, and she missed him terribly. For those of us who are NOT animal lovers, please indulge a discussion that will hopefully speak to the hearts of the folks who have been smitten by their four-legged friends. When an individual forges an intense bond with a beloved pet, the passing of this creature may be an excruciat-ing loss. Those of us who never have established this level of connection with animals may not be able to fathom this pain. We may be genuinely baffled by the intense grief reactions shown and may truly believe: Its just an animal after all.Ž To imply that one should move on, and not grieve, may uninten-tionally communicate a callous insensi-tivity to anothers loss „ a loss that can be quite real, and quite deep. Some of us have had very limited or compromised social interactions in our everyday lives. We may have had hurtful or disappointing relationships with oth-ers, or discouraging experiences or set backs. However, with our pets, we may feel free to show an uninhibited, playful side of ourselves were too intimidated to display anywhere else. And, we may actually like this side of ourselves. Coming home daily to a pet that accepts our flaws and loves us unconditionally may be a source of enormous comfort and joy. And, for those of us who do not have children of our own (whether by choice or circumstance) our pets may have filled an emotional void, offering a fulfilling sense of family connection. All of us handle grief in a unique and individual way. We may not fully under-stand what we are feeling, or even com-prehend why we are being impacted the way we are. The level of grief we experience will often be determined by our stage of life and particular life circumstances, the longevity and breadth of the bond with the animal, and the particulars of this loss. And, of course, our history of emo-tional bonding and the quality of other relationships in our lives will be a deter-mining factor. Some of us will find that intense feelings can be triggered even years after the loss; upon the sighting an animal on the street, or an anniversary date that passes. We may feel a bit defensive or embarrassed that were struggling the way we do. When those around us minimize the loss or imply its inappropriate to react so strongly to the loss of a nonhuman, we may become hurt or highly offended, and our grieving process may be ham-pered. Sometimes our family members are at a loss on how to be supportive to us. They may feel awkward and frustrated, and desperate for life to return to the way it was. They dont always under-stand that they can show tremendous compassion, even when saying nothing and just by squeezing our hands and communicating patient acceptance. We should never underestimate the powerful draw of a bond with a being that loves us unconditionally, asking very little in return. Losing this comfort and source of joy can be incomprehen-sible.

A20 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 28-MAY 4, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY ADVERTISEMENT ASK THE VEIN EXPERT ASK THE VEIN EXPERT Thomas Ashton, Medical Director, MD, FACPHQuestion: I have very severe bulging veins in both of my legs. My doctor told me to just wear support stockings because there is no treatment, and no reason to treat. Is this correct? There are many misconceptions about vein disease, and unfortunately many of these bad ideas are coming from physicians. Many think varicose vein disease is a normal aspect of aging. Or that varicose vein disease is only of cosmetic concern. I think that aching, heaviness, tiredness, itching, burning swelling, skin disruption and ulcers, all the symptoms that go with varicose veins are not cosmetic. These are dangerous signs that constitute a medical condition that should be corrected. Others will advise the use of support stockings. This is also incorrect. Support stockings and TED anti-embolic stockings are useless in the care of varicose vein disease. The stockings must be properly fit to order, and be gradient compression. This requires a written prescription. Some doctors think that since vein disease is cosmetic, that insurance will not cover treatment. Treatments are medically necessary and are covered by most plans including medicare. Another misconception passed on by some doctors is that no treatment really works. We have performed over 5,000 in office procedures with excellent results that have withstood the test of time.

Download our For Health. For Life. Walk-in Urgent Care Available 7 Days a Week: 10 a.m. 10 p.m. HEALTHY LIVING New options for breast cancer careI am new to South Florida, having just arrived from Chicago about six weeks ago to join the Jupiter Medical Center team as medical director of the breast care program. While I am enjoying the warm weather and the people are so lovely, what I am most excited about is leading a team dedicated to providing stellar care to women in our community. From the innovative diagnostic tools to the highly-qualified breast imaging specialists at the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center to the cutting-edge sur-geries and innovative treatments we offer, we take a 360-degree approach to treating patients, enabling us to provide comprehensive and compassionate care. The Comprehensive Breast Care Program is unique because it is a multi-disciplinary center for breast health, designed with the patient in mind. This means that patients get thorough, thoughtful, efficient and personalized attention for all aspects of their care, from diagnostic tests through recovery and follow-up. We have two fellowship-trained breast mammographers who complete all of our imaging. Results can be read on the same day as the mammogra-phy exam by our radiologists, dramati-cally decreasing the stress of waiting to receive test results. Answering questions about treatment options is a critical aspect of this pro-cess; as a surgeon, my key role involves analyzing what types of procedures would be best for each patient. But there are many other aspects to treatment, and for these we have on-site nutri-tionists, physical therapists and genetic counselors at Jupiter Medical Center. Patients meet with each of our professionals in order to gain an inclusive view of what their treatment and recov-ery will include. I lead our breast center team in its effort to make sure we are providing a complete and comprehen-sive treatment plan. Each team member is committed to spending as much time as is necessary to answer questions, providing each patient with information and doing their best to put her mind at ease. Our full-service consultation approach is becoming increasingly important as a larger percentage of patients are directing their treatment choices. Industry leaders in breast health now often refer to this shift as the Angelina Jolie Effect.Ž Ms. Jolie elected to do a prophylactic bilateral mastectomy after testing positive for the breast cancer gene (her mother died from the disease several years earlier), but before being diagnosed. As a result, more women are entering into our con-sultation requesting this form of treat-ment. My job is to provide our patients with a range of choices, so that once we have gotten to know them and understand what is important to them, we can make decisions together. I specialize in oncoplastics, which is a plastic surgery approach to breast can-cer, and so as a fellowship-trained breast surgeon, I felt that it was important to continue to grow the surgical compo-nent of the breast program. We have two surgical advances that are frequently utilized at our center. The first is intraoperative radiation, which involves receiving radiation while simultaneously getting a lumpectomy. The second, which I personally special-ize in, is Hidden ScarTM surgery. The goal with this procedure is to remove all traces of cancer from the breast, while leaving the breast looking as natural and intact as possible, with the poten-tial for a small, inconspicuous scar. This technique is being practiced more frequently in the field, so I brought the method to the breast center. The Hid-den Scar technique does take more time, because of the amount of precision involved. However, it involves a much shorter recovery period, which can be beneficial to patients. As a medical director, I oversee every element of our practice, from diagnos-tics to treatment to recovery. In the end, the emphasis of the Comprehensive Breast Care Program at Jupiter Medi-cal Center is very simple „ we want the best for our patients, and we come together to provide care that works for each individual patient. The goal? Years of enjoying the sunshine in South Florida. Q r o c a w a nancy TAFT MD, FACS Medical Director, Comprehensive Breast Care ProgramJupiter Medical Center

Adding the bloomCOURTESY PHOTOA Crawford Landscaping employee sculpts an expanse of grass. The company has 170 employees and projects revenue of $13 million this year. BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@” oridaweekly.comNATURE IS A FINE AND DANDY THING LEFT untutored, and Floridians in particular like to look at it or even step into it, on occasion. But most of us are not looking at untutored nature, in general. Instead both east and west „ for nearly 1.4 million people in Palm Beach County and more than 1.2 million on the Southwest coast „ were living and working in the embrace of tutored landscapes designed, shaped and brought to robust bloom by landscapers. Their environments are altered, adjusted, redesigned and maintained as verdant retreats on the one hand, or stress-less eye candy on the other, and all of it festooned with bloom-ing color year around. It may look easy in the subtropics, but thats an illusion, as Florida Weekly discovered recently in a quick glance at the business of beautiful landscapes. We love what we do because we can re-vegetate some of the stuff torn down by development and change,Ž says Justin Walsh, head of operations for the company his father, Robert, founded 35 years ago, R.S. Walsh, specializing in custom residential design and maintenance in Lee, Charlotte and Collier counties. Their work is a hallmark of residen-tial life on Sanibel and Captiva islands „ Sani-bel, where code requires the use of 75 percent native vegetation on each property. Or they can use both exotics and native plants that work together to a common goal: creating sustainable beauty that surrounds residents and visitors alike. All of them feel that way, from the big to the small companies. Yesterday we launched a new site, it happens to be a 60-unit community within Miromar Lakes, very high-end, 20 buildings that are three stories, and well take over the maintenance,Ž says Blake Crawford, founder and partner, with Keith Mahan, of one of Floridas most prestigious and well-pedigreed companies, the 12-year-old Crawford Landscaping Group. Based in Naples, Craw-ford includes 170 employees and a revenue stream likely to hit $13 million this year. Well do a before analysis, file it away, and assist the managers in developing a game plan with 30-, 60-, and 90-day goals,Ž he explains. Well design a master plan for upgrading the site. Its very green, and when you drive through it theres no color. So well design a comprehensive, five-year plan to enhance the site with color, and with plants that will thrive in the environment the community is in.Ž Crawford will also suggest a three-year comprehensive tree-care program to stabi-lize the trees, reduce them by a third each year (thats the proper way to do it,Ž says Mr. Crawford) so theyre more beautiful and theyll allow more sun to reach the understo-ry, and then the company will create flower-ing ground plants that can make a garden-park of the premises, rather than a place merely to be watered and mowed. That level of effort and ambition suggests a truth that bears out with others, too: Land-scapers here are not just people who mow a lawn and trim a few bushes. On the contrary, theyre artists. Theyre botanical scientists of sorts. And theyre capable business owners. Were 100-percent hands on, we put the mo to the jo, the yin to the yang and the feng to the shui,Ž explains Paul Harding, co-Landscapers beautify as Southwest Floridians embrace groomed surroundingsSEE BLOOM, A22 XWALSH BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE A21 WEEK OF APRIL 28-MAY 4, 2016

COURTESY PHOTOSCrawford Landscaping Group serves clients from Marco Island to Fort Myers.owner with his wife, Marta Edwards, of Amelias SmartyPlants, based in Lake Worth. What that means is, you talk to the clients and you come up with a premise for design,Ž says Mr. Harding. And when it comes to game day, you expect a certain amount of magic when you put the plants in the ground. Thats the feng to the shui „ you try to get everything out of that ground you can.ŽThe company started six years ago as a one-job-at-a-time boutique business, and it stayed that way, although now theres an elaborate garden center and 12 good employees, secured to an annual revenue stream of about $1.5 million „ right where they want to be for a decent, dependable life, says Mr. Harding.But were still one job at a time,Ž he notes. One job at a time, for homes rang-ing from $5 million Palm Beach estates to $100,000 Lake Worth cottages. Others do it differently, but whether their business models are big or small, wide-ranging or intimate or both, Florida landscapers literally create environments that never fade. In the north landscapers have maintenance contracts for everything, and theres a winter that kills off all the insects and some diseases every year,Ž says Mr. Crawford, who should know. The son of a Detroit entrepreneur on whom he still relies for advice, Mr. Crawford started his own landscaping business as a high school student in Grosse Point, Mich., and never looked back. Up there,Ž he adds, you sell every service you perform: You have a mow, blow and go contract, a horticulture contract if the shrubs are trimmed, a pest control contract, a fertilization contract and so on. But down here you have one mainte-nance contract for all of it.Ž And all of it is a lot, especially for Crawfords upscale, full-service company, ranked as one of the only in the nation to be counted as an ISO 9000 company „ ISO is a business watchdog group with an acronym that means International Stan-dardization Organization. Such companies meet rigorous standards of leadership, customer focus, pro-cess and planning, good supplier relation-ships, and a team approach that includes both stakeholders and employees, says David Dorle, a spokesman for the com-pany. Mr. Crawford, meanwhile, prides himself on paying his staff well, providing full benefits, and keeping employees, includ-ing foreman of his various divisions, for years in the job, he says. Although the company is large, he takes a boutique approach to clients and jobs, often bidding higher than others but keeping his promises to customers and relying on that staff „ which includes one of Floridas few master arborists. During the recession, the company actually saw an uptick in business because it was built on maintenance, explains Mr. Crawford. For us, maintenance can mean mowing, pruning, fertilization, pest control and disease checks, continued retreat-ment of diseases, a monthly wet check, and in some cases a comprehensive arbor program,Ž he says. When people have invested significantly in beautiful terrain around them, they dont want to let it go „ and main-tenance in the subtropics is essential for plant health and beauty. Unpredictably, however, the company grew to a revenue stream of $14.9 million in 2013, then dropped the next year to $12.5 million, Mr. Crawford reports „ and that has to do with his special clients. Forty percent of our business is commercial construction. We arent your typ-ical mass-producing construction com-pany, though. Were more boutique, we work with selected builders and develop-ers „ and all the people we work with hit a lull at the same time.Ž That lull is now over. Both the economic landscape and the geographic landscape of the region are beginning to bloom like robust gardens. Q BLOOMFrom page 21 CRAWFORD MONEY & INVESTINGIt’s time to be cautious about buying Microsoft, GoogleOne of the most frustrating things about being an individual stock inves-tor is how quickly a stock can go from hot to not. Extreme examples of this over the last year include Valeant Phar-maceuticals, which in only a five-year period, went from around $30 a share to over $250 and now back to $30 a share. Or SunEdison, which climbed from single digits to $30 a share and is now filing for bankruptcy. But even widely held stocks can see whipsaw movements in price. Last week two tech bellwethers, Microsoft and Google, saw significant reversals in their stock prices. What caused these movements and should investors take actions based on these announcements? Google (now technically traded as Alphabet Inc Class C, but I will just refer to it as Google) has been a stellar performer since its IPO in 2004. Its revenues continue to grow at a healthy rate and it holds a dominant market share in Internet search not only here in the U.S., but in dozens of other countries as well. Its stock price has grown from $50 per share to over $700 today, making it a beloved stock held by many investors, large and small. Yet last week, GOOG dropped by 6 percent after its latest quarterly earnings release. Revenues were up sharply from 2015, so that wasnt the cause. The primary concern for investors is that more and more of Googles ad revenue is coming from mobile searches as consumers are transitioning from using desktop and laptops to tab-lets and mobile phones. Unfortunately for Google, its margins are much lower when consumers use mobile devices. This is because it must pay other companies to reach these customers through mobile devices (they call it TAC or Traf-fic Acquisition Costs). For example, it was recently disclosed that Google paid Apple $1 billion to be the search pro-vider on iPhones. And if each quarter a greater percentage of revenues are coming from less profitable business, that will put pressure on margins and income over time. Microsoft has also been a strong performer, especially since last fall. The stock has risen over 20 percent in the last four months alone. Investors like the stable business and the healthy 3 percent dividend yield. However, last week the huge tech company also dropped around 6 per-cent after its earnings release. Two problems were blamed for the plunge. First, PC demand continues to fall as people transition to mobile devices. And unfortunately, that means fewer sales of Windows and Office. Second, Microsoft hoped to offset PC declines with its growth in its cloud business, an area dominated by Amazon. In fact, much of Microsofts recent price rise was predicated on its expectation of stealing market share in this very lucra-tive business line. And while Micro-softs cloud business did show signs of growth, it missed analyst expectations. So should Google and Microsoft shareholders be worried after last weeks earnings release? I believe caution is warranted with both of these stocks. First, both trade at fairly high Price/Earning ratios (GOOGs is 32 while MSFTs is 39). Clearly, investors are pricing these companies with high earnings growth expectations, which pres-ents a high hurdle going forward. Their dominant market share in their respective products makes this an even more difficult challenge. Second, the trends negatively affecting both stocks probably wont be changing any time soon. People will continue to transition into mobile devices from PCs, which means lesser margins for Google and fewer Windows sold for Microsoft. That means that both com-panies will rely on noncore businesses to help drive growth in the years ahead. For Microsoft, that is its cloud business and for Google, it will mean every-thing from self-driving cars to enter-prise software. And neither company has proven it can dominate these other areas. That puts a big question mark on both of these high-flying stocks.

Old Dixie Hwy. l Jupiter, FL 33458 Jefferson Vaughan, MD Medical Director Institute for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery KOVELS: ANTIQUESModern companies making copies of Chinese apothecary chests BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVEL Chinese apothecary chests were originally made to hold herbs and medicines used in past centuries. The chests were usually made of elmwood or other dark wood. The chest may have a stand with very short legs because the Chinese used to do business at floor level, not behind a counter. No nails were used making the chest, just dowels and glue. Each chest had rows of 36 to over 100 small, labeled drawers. At a January 2016 auction at James D. Julia, auctioneers offered an antique Elmwood apothecary chest with 80 drawers. Small collect-ibles, such as coins, netsukes, b uttons, sewing supplies, Star Wars toys, CDs or marbles can be stored in this type of cabinet. There are many companies sell-ing modern copies. This antique auc-tioned chest with a stand is 43 inches high, 36 inches wide and 12 inches deep. It sold for $948, less than the price of a new one on the internet. Q: Can you give me a general idea of the value of a mint-condition Schultz and Dooley set of steins? They are characters from Utica Club beer commercials from the early 1970s. Schultz is nearly a foot high and Dooley over half that height. A : Utica Club beer was first made in 1933 by West End Brewing Co. of Utica, N.Y. The company was started in 1888 by Francis Xavier Matt. Schultz and Dooley beer steins appeared in TV commercials advertising Utica C lub beer fr om 1959 to 1964. Jonathan Winters provided the voices for the talkingŽ beer steins. The steins were given to bars and stores as promotional items and were so popular they were later offered for sale. The steins were sold in sets. Only 5,000 sets were made in 1959. T he brewery company name became the F.X. Matt B rewing Co. in 1980. Its still in business and offers a new character beer stein each November. Value depends on rarity of the edition you have. The 1959 set in good condition sells for $175-$200. Q: I have a glass cup that was my fathers. The glass is red and has a clear handle and pattern around the bottom. His name, Wayne, is on the glass, along with the date 1924. Im assuming it was from some event. Was it a special order or did they engrave it on the spot? Do you know how that process worked? A: Your red glass is called Ruby Stain, and the deeply faceted band on the bot-tom is called B utton Ar ches. The pattern was first issued by Duncan Glass Co. in 1885, by the U.S. Glass Co. in 1897, and Jefferson Glass Co. about 1910. Yours is probably the later issue. Items like this were sold as souvenirs for events and places all over the country. Most sou-venir pieces, including pitchers, sugar and creamers, tumblers, cups, mugs, toothpicks and paperweights, were ruby stained, though a few were green. Visi-tors could buy a piece of ruby-stained glass and have it inscribed with the location, event, date and the name of a special person. The wording was either acid-etched or wheel engraved. Your mug might have been for a christening, birthday or a visit to a special place. Its worth about $10 to $25 to a collector. Q: I have a Blender Queen,Ž a modern-looking glass jar with a streamlined plastic base and a top that looks like a spaceship. It plugs in, push the on but-ton, the blades inside revolve and you get a smoothie.Ž It seems to be a rela-tive of the Waring Blender. Is this the inspiration for the Waring Blender or a later copy? Is it sellable? A: The Waring Blender was financed and manufactured by the popular bandleader, Fred Waring. An inventor went to him for money and Waring put $25,000 into a company to make the then-unique product. It was patented in 1938 and sold as the Miracle Mixer,Ž but the name was quickly changed to the Waring Blender. It cost $29.75. It was a huge success and was used in hospitals for special diets and scientific experiments, as well as for what we now call smoothies.Ž Sixty-seven companies made similar products. Some are called liquefiers. Your Blender Queen was made in the 1960s. The push-b utton on and off switch was an improvement cre-ated in 1963. We saw a working plastic Waring Drink MixerŽ for sale at a flea market in August 2015 for $30. Working blenders from the 60s sell for about $30 to $100. Tip: Always use your hair spray or perfume before you put on your jewelry. Both products damage some metals and stones. Q „ Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Its the one thing that doesnt take up much space, and I can use it. Its also a commodity, so its worth its weight in, well, silver. Most people only use their silver on special occasions. I remember many a Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner after which my grandmother carefully washed and dried her sterling flatware, in Towles Lady Mary pattern. First, wed wash the silver, then rinse it thoroughly. After drying it with a towel, wed allow it to air-dry on another towel before putting it away in a silver chest. Grandma always put a piece of plastic wrap over the silver thinking it would keep moisture „ and tarnish „ away. We know now plastic wrap actually can trap moisture and cause silver to tarnish. Contrast that with Kermit and Susie, Grandmas neighbors. Kermit had brought back a set of sterling flatware he had purchased someplace overseas during World War II. They used it every day and the pieces shone with a brilliance that comes with the patina of use „ all those little scratches make the metal appear warmer and more interesting. Susie never polished her silver because it never tarnished, thanks to daily use. More importantly, she enjoyed it every day. And thats the point of this story. The chocolate muddler spoon I featured last week is a beauty and is representative of another era. What? You dont use a chocolate pot now? Picture this spoon stirring a pitcher of mojitos, then. I can assure you that you will be the only one in your circle who has one like this. You probably wont need to polish it if you use it. And you do need to use and enjoy these items „ after all, whats the point of having them if you dont use them? Sterling flatware can go in a dishwasher, though its best to avoid placing it with stainless steel items, and hollow-handled knives do best with hand-washing. My recipe: Just wash it in hot, soapy water and enjoy!

Federal Highway, Delray Beach; (561) 278-8996 or hoodauction.com. Cost: $13. The Skinny: Josiah Wedgwood was on to something when he first created his pottery in 1760s England. Many of his pieces, especially the blue and white Jasperware for which he is known, drew upon classical Greek and Roman motifs. This piece of Wedgwoods Capriware, dating from the second half of the 19th century, a classical jug with Asian motifs. Made in black basalt, the companys fine-grained, unglazed stoneware, the piece is hand-enameled with the peonies and chrysanthemums that are popular designs on Chinese pottery. At the time, pieces from Asia were pricey imports, so manufacturers throughout Europe sought to emulate those designs. This milk pitcher dates from the second half of the 19th century „ Im not sure quite when because its date mark is obscured. But its a sweet piece and its practical.

Kensington Books. 336 pages. Hard-cover, $25. Forensic thriller author Lisa Black has launched a new series with a new lead character and a new publisher. As she continues working in real life as a crime scene investigator and latent print examiner for the Cape Coral Police Department, Ms. Black places her new series in Cleveland, the setting for her earlier Teresa MacLean series and another two-part series before it. Billed as A Gardiner and Renner Novel, the first book in the new series develops through alternating scenes, the narrator sometimes standing behind (and entering the mind of) forensic investigator Maggie Gardiner and some-times taking us into police detective Jack Renners frightening consciousness. Both are working the same crimes, but the nature of their work is in sharp contrast. Or is it? Jack is a vigilante with a badge. He has made it his mission to assas-sinate psychopaths who can beat the legal system. He is saving lives and, in his own mind, making the world safer by ending the lives of those rapists, killers, child abusers and other criminals who have escaped justice. He will bring the needed justice. Capable and dedicated, Jack has developed a system and created the isolated, hidden cham-bers where he can mete out this justice. Being part of a police department gives him access to information that is invaluable for his goal. In fact, it has been his expe-rience as a policeman „ and witness to the routine failures of the system „ that has led him to his own personal mad-ness. If thats what it is. Maggie is equally dedicated, an experienced scientist-technician who is very good at her trade and who enjoys her role in the crime-fighting profession. She is motivated by her own curiosity and by the magnitude of the crimes she is assigned to investigate. Like Jack, her work takes up way too much of her life. Readers will suspect early on that Maggies pursuit of evidence to find and convict a serial killer will lead to suspecting someone on the inside of the law enforcement sys-tem. The authors mas-terful handling of plot, character and scientific method allows the reader to watch the pieces fall into place that lead Mag-gie to suspect Jack. Beyond these centers of interest, Ms. Black has crafted a work of fasci-nating psychological depth. Ms. Black is quite selfconsciously a debunker of the glamor mythology surrounding CSI-type television dramas. In her books, we encounter a true authenticity of forensic Q&A „ the careful collection, examination and evaluation of physical evidence. No miracles. No glamor. Just hard work and perhaps a special kind of trained intu-ition. In this regard, That DarknessŽ is one of her best. The work might sometimes be tedious to Maggie, but the process described never becomes so for the reader. Rather, it is magnetic. Ms. Black underpins the authenticity of her novel by her ability to create an absolutely convincing sense of place. Here and in her earlier novels, the city of Cleveland is totally credible and becomes sharply imbedded in her readers imagination. You can believe in the city: its history, its neighborhoods, its architecture, its scale, its combination of representative and distinctive urban America features. Thats what makes it easy to accept the strange and potentially unbelievable things that take place there. So does the authors sure-handedness in describing the handling and analysis of evidence. There is much that is grim, bloody and cruel in That Darkness.Ž The crimes are gruesome, the criminals unredeem-able. Wait until you meet Maria Stein, the incarnation of evil who Jack has been tracking down for a long, long time. Maggies stability and compassion go a long way toward balancing the scales by giving us someone to admire. But remember that this is a seriesopening novel that links Maggie and Jack almost as if they were partners. How can this be? What can be the basis for a relationship between these two contrasting characters? Youll begin to figure this out toward the end. Then you will want many more Gardiner and Renner novels to feed your appetite for unusual odd couples, rigorous plotting and harrowing suspense. I know I do.

B8 WEEK OF APRIL 28-MAY 4, 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLY Without any smugness, but a bit of sassy pride, she said nearing the close of her third season, For all the naysayers, I know theyre unhappy right now.Ž But its only Scene One of Act Two: She has started a $5 million fundrais-ing campaign, is finalizing a summer of short-term events and is changing over the entire contents of her adja-cent Costume Museum. She has begun mediumand long-range planning that encompasses sending a show out on the road this fall, creating a childrens theater program in the summer of 2017, building an orchestra pit, and, crucially, mounting a major push to grow from 2,800 subscribers to 5,000. Ms. Wick knows these and the other projects on the list are ambitious, but she can joke about it: I dont do any-thing small. Im my own trap.Ž Financially, the theaters nonprofit operation is not in the red; were sort of breaking even,Ž she said. About 30 per-cent of the operating income comes from ticket sales. The balance derives from patrons donations, cash from Wick per-sonally and Costume World corporately. But she said a couple of hundred thousand a monthŽ is generated by the affiliated for-profit operations: her popular Costume Museum in the same building, concession sales, a gift shop, rentals to other groups and her Tavern restaurant meant to echo New York Citys famed Tavern on the Green. She said from the beginning that those syn-ergistic operations would play a key role in the viability of the operation. The mortgage purchase frees the com-pany to move ahead with projects like the orchestra pit under the stage and to raise the stage ceiling to provide space to fly scenery in and out. The pit, not expected to be built for another season yet because it will be dug out from under the stage, is especially telling because the Wick Theatre has been criticized for using digital recorded music much of the time „ although she still expects to use tracksŽ from musicals requiring large lush orchestras. Although raising the stage ceiling is a long-term project, she plans this summer to reinstall a system so that the lighting and scenery grid above the stage can be raised from its current location 19 feet above the stage up to the roof at 24 feet just so we can move in the scenery well be using next season.Ž Other changes include the recent hiring of a New York-based casting agent, although Ms. Wick believes in leaning heavily toward casting local talent now that she knows the pool better; and she plans to bring on a board of directors who will add donations and expertise. A legendarily strong-willed hands-on administrator, she plans to find board members who will trust her judgment. The product, primarily classic musicals, has been warmly received by its older patrons and recognized with 13 Carbonell nominations and three wins. The productions and assorted extras such as after-parties with live entertain-ment reflect her belief that theatergo-ers want a lush full-fledged experience. Generally, the shows cost between $240,000 to $340,000 to mount includ-ing $100,000 in personnel costs and not counting $65,000 to $100,000 in royal-ties taken off the ticket sales, she said. Ms. Wick has a bent toward hiring name stars (or at least performers known by Broadway aficionados) for her marquee: Broadway veteran Lee Roy Reams starred in La Cage aux FollesŽ and broke ground starring in the title role of Hello, Dolly!,Ž an ill-fated pro-duction of MameŽ with Leslie Uggams, the Lennon Sisters performed for a Christmas show, and she has lined up Andrea McArdle for next falls Theyre Playing Our Song.Ž The ticket prices range from $58 to $80, a shade on the high side for the region, but discounted tickets are often available on websites. It has not been an easy ride. Ms. Wick admitted up front her inexperience and said at the time, Ill learn.Ž She seemingly has learned, albeit the hard way. The theater staff has gone through significant turnover at every level of the operation. She angered live musi-cians by changing to digital recordings when the players thought they had been hired. But an unofficial stable of direc-tors, staff members and actors/dancers is beginning to coalesce. The company has received patrons donations but is still in need of significant continuing largesse. Missy McArdle, her long-time associate going back to the early days of Costume World, said admiringly, The learning curve was massive. This par-ticular aspect was unknown to her. It is awesome how much she learned.Ž Ms. Wicks edge, Ms. McArdle said, has been her extensive experience run-ning several business ventures includ-ing one that specialized in rescuing and resurrecting failing companies. Asked about what Ms. Wick knows that small companies of theatrical art-ists dont know when they start up theaters, Ms. McArdle said, Theyre romantics. This is a business.Ž One thing is clear: Ms. Wick needs to keep the place open and operational during the off-season. On June 10, she plans to announce a full slate of events in concert with brunches and dinners at the Tavern. Among the ideas are a mur-der mystery play in between gourmet food courses, after-dinner shows offer-ing on different evenings, show tunes, country-western, rhythm & blues, 60s rock, a banjo band, even cooking classes from the Taverns master chef. She hopes there will be little down time for the nearly 30,000-square-foot cream-colored jewel box at 7901 N. Fed-eral Highway. The building opened in 2007 as the new home of the Caldwell Theatre Company, one of the most pres-tigious theaters in the region. But it shuttered in 2012 when Legacy Bank foreclosed on two mortgages totaling $5.89 million plus an additional $1.3 mil-lion in interest and late charges. It had fallen victim to a long list of problems that included a shrinking base of sub-scribers and debts. Ms. Wicks Costume World, reportedly the largest theatrical costume dis-tributor in the country, signed the lease with Legacy Bank in March 2013 with an option to buy it. Transforming the facility required an initial investment of about $1 million, Ms. Wick has said. The venue, a fine base for plays, did not have extensive enough sound and lighting equipment for musicals, she said. Upgrading was required while the buildings interior was remodeled, in part to turn the back of the facility into a new home for her costume museum. At an age when most of her peers have settled into retirement, Ms. Wick continues churning away undimmed. The secret to success, she said, is dis-covering in each business that theres a foundation, a formula to this and you have to figure out what it is. You can be scared. But you have to be smart enough to figure it out.Ž Q „ Bill Hirschman edits Florida Theater On Stage. Read him online at floridatheateronstage.com.WICKFrom page 1WICK

LATEST FILMS‘Green Room’ +++ Is it worth $10? YesRight from the start, we dont like the characters in Green Room.Ž Four 20-somethings, ragged and in need of a shower, wake up hung over inside their van that has veered off the road into a cornfield. Two of them „ Sam (Alia Shawkat) and Pat (Anton Yelchin) „ leave to siphon gas from cars nearby. At least theyre resourceful. They call themselves a punk rock band, but unless my ears deceive me they play terrible heavy metal. Soon a guy with a mohawk (David W. Thompson) interviews the band, which also includes Reece (Joe Cole) and Tiger (Cal-lum Turner). They insist theyre too pureŽ to go virtual and pro-mote themselves via social media. All that matters is the energy of performing, they say. So now theyre not just miscreants, theyre also pretentious and need to get over themselves. These early details are important because they show how unlikeable the main characters are, and yet soon enough Green RoomŽ cap-tivates us with tension and has us rooting for these lowlifes to survive. Its a fascinating and unexpected twist thats difficult to pull off. Writer/director Jeremy Saulnier does this the only way he could: by pitting the band, aptly named The Aint Rights, against a group of Neo-Nazi Skinheads who hold them captive after Pat stumbles upon a fresh-ly killed dead body. Soon it becomes obvious The Aint Rights, along with sympathizing Neo-Nazi Amber (Imogen Poots), are not going to make it out alive. Whats unique about Green RoomŽ is the business-like approach the Skin-heads use to plot the murders. The owner of the remote Oregon bar in which theyre held, Darcy (Patrick Stew-art), insists the murders look like an accident, or in the least self-defense. Mr. Stewart plays Darcy with little emo-tion: cold, soft-spoken and calculating, worried about his bottom line and how itll all look to the outside world. The last thing hell tolerate is indiscriminate, rampant bloodshed. If you only know Mr. Stewart as Prof. X in X-MenŽ or Capt. Picard in Star Trek,Ž youre in for a real treat here. Some of the violence is grisly and uncomfortable, but not to the point that it takes you out of the story. In fact, its fittingly savage for the brutal and immoral world in which these characters live. Guns, machetes, fire extinguishers, switchblades and even ferocious dogs get in on the action, and because its lit in such a grim (dare I say punk rockŽ inspired?) way, the movie retains an earthy tone that allows the audience to embrace its horrifying reality. But really, its the harsh precision of Darcy and his men that makes this intriguing. The story almost functions as a procedural of how to kill innocents and make it look like its their fault, which is a notably compelling and dark premise on which to base a movie. Top it off with a great performance from Mr. Stewart, and Green RoomŽ becomes a tense thriller you wont want to miss. Q >> Patrick Stewart said when he read the script, he stopped at page 35 to get up to lock the windows and doors and pour himself a whiskey soda. Why? “Because the screenplay was unsettling me so deeply,” he said, according to an April 14 article at ew.com. r M C a u i dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com FILM CAPSULESThe Huntsman: Winter’s War ++1/2 (Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt) With Evil Queen Ravenna (Ms.. Theron) dead, the Huntsman (Mr. Hemsworth) has to retrieve the magic mirror before Ravennas ice queen sister Freya (Ms. Blunt) gets her heartless cold hands on it. It often lacks logic and sus-pense, but the story is just smart enough in its broadest strokes to make this genuinely entertaining. Rated PG-13.The Jungle Book ++ (Neel Sethi, Voices of Bill Murray, Idris Elba) Man-cub Mowgli (young Mr. Sethi) is raised by wolves in the jungle, but is forced to flee when a tiger (Ms. Elba) threatens to kill him. Its visu-ally dazzling but the story is thin, and superfluous characters make the movie tedious rather than engaging. Rated PG.Demolition ++ (Jake Gyllenhaal, Naomi Watts, Chris Cooper) After Davis (Mr. Gyllenhaal) loses his wife in a car accident, a stranger (Ms. Watts) who works in vending machine customer service helps him move on. Davis is so numb that he doesnt feel any-thing, which has the ironic byproduct of the audience not feeling anything either. Youll want to invest emotionally, but you wont be able to. Rated R. Q

Some hints of more of a modernist … and unique „ approach the blues, soul and rock were present on Boys & Girls,Ž but Sound & ColorŽ makes it clear the Alabama Shakes arent out to be Muddy Waters revivalists. As inventive and daring as the second album sounds, Alabama Shakes drum-mer Steve Johnson said there was little that was planned or calculated about the way the music developed. We werent learning our parts, getting them all dialed in and going in (to the studio) with an idea of what we were going to do,Ž Mr. Johnson said in a recent phone interview. It was very in the moment, you know, and improvised and just natural. However it was com-ing out was how we were hearing it at the time.Ž Alabama Shakes came into the second album being hailed as one of the most exciting new bands to have come on the scene in recent years. Formed in Athens, Ala., in 2009 by singer/guitarist Brittany Howard, guitarist Heath Fogg, bassist Zac Cockrell and Johnson, the acclaim has only built behind Sound & Color,Ž which won four Grammy awards in February, including Best Alternative album, and for the song Dont Wanna Fight,Ž Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song. By 2011, the group had released a foursong self-titled EP and been the subject of a rave review in The New York Times for its performance at the CMJ Music Festival that fall. A month later, the band was signed by ATO Records. The buzz around the band was already building by the time Boys & GirlsŽ was released in spring 2012. Then the critical acclaim translated into commercial success as the single, Hold On,Ž topped the adult alternative singles chart and the album was certified gold with sales eventually topping 700,000 copies. This set the stage for Sound & ColorŽ and more great expectations. But the innovative and adventurous direction of Sound & Color,Ž though, didnt emerge right away. In fact, the group began the path to the album with a couple of sessions that didnt bear fruit. First we had like a couple of demos we had done in other studios.Ž Mr. Johnson said. Like we went back with Andrija (Tokic), who helped engineer and co-produce a couple of songs on Boys and Girls, we went back and demoed like an early version of Miss You and Gimme All Your Love at his place. And it didnt have the same, I dont know, the songs, structurally they werent there yet.Ž The sound wasnt there. Then we tried some other songs at Tommy Brennecks studio in Brook-lyn,Ž he said. He does stuff with Budos Band and Charles Bradley. So we did an early version of Joe and this song called Heat Lightning, which didnt make the record. His sound was very, very Dap-Tone and very soul. And thats cool, but thats very much their thing. We had bigger ambitions than that. We didnt want to sound exactly like were copping their style or anything like that because its not our thing. Its an influ-ence of ours, but its not our thing.Ž Next, Alabama Shakes headed to Nashville to work with producer Blake Mills. Thats when something fresh hap-pened. We went there and then we recorded Gemini right out of the gate. That was the first song that we tracked,Ž Mr. Johnson said. So immediately there was a tone for the album and a mood and everything.Ž Another song that came together early in the session with Mr. Mills, according to Mr. Johnson, was Gimme All Your Love,Ž the track that didnt gel with Mr. Tokic. There was an early demo like at Andreijas, and the parts werent, they werent really there yet. The idea was,Ž Mr. Johnson said. The idea was defi-nitely there, but it hadnt locked in yet. Then when we started working with Blake, Blake had a couple of ideas to emphasize certain parts and make them feel like a statement rather than just a part in the song, I guess, something that was going to get drilled into somebodys head, making it pop.Ž Several other songs came together during that session with Mr. Mills, and work on Sound & ColorŽ stretched out for about a year as the band and its producer chased its adventurous vision. But Mr. Johnson said the band knew Give Me All Your LoveŽ was a standout. That song, its always been pretty much a powerhouse,Ž he said. The vocal delivery on it is just straight from the gut, in your face, howling. I mean, its evident when we play live how pow-erful it is because it stops people, like boom.Ž Mr. Johnson saw Sound & ColorŽ as an album that might not connect imme-diately with fans of the first album as well as newcomers to the music of Ala-bama Shakes, but its obvious that plenty of people heard the albums virtues. To me, its a very emotional, spacey ride, I guess,Ž he said. Theres a lot of types of songs that arent immediate to a listener, that dont immediately pull them in. You might have to listen to it a few times and then over that period of time, certain things kind of jump out at you that you didnt hear before. I think this is definitely one of those kinds of albums.Ž The band enjoys having two full albums of material to play, making it easier to fill a headlining set. Weve been playing all of the new material, and still putting in some of the stuff from Boys & Girls in there,Ž Mr. Johnson said. Our set lists are longer now. We were only playing like 60 min-utes. Now were playing 90 minutes and trying to put as much of the new mate-rial in as possible.Ž Q SHAKESFrom page 1 >> Where: Flagler Drive between Banyan Boulevard and Lakeview Drive >> When: Through May 1 >> Hours: April 28: 5-10 p.m. April 29: 5-11 p.m. April 30: Noon to 11 p.m. May 1: Noon to 9 p.m.>> Admission: 1-Day Pass: $40 2-Day Pass: $70 at gate 5-Day Pass: $90 at gate>> Fireworks: 9 p.m., May 1BAND SCHEDULE>> Thursday, April 28: 5:45-6:30 p.m.: Mike Mineo 5:45-6:15 p.m.: Tori Lynn 6:45-7:30 p.m.: LunchMoney Lewis 7-8 p.m.: Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors 8-9:30 p.m.: Jason Derulo 8:30-10 p.m.: Train>> Friday, April 29: 6:15-7 p.m.: WD Han 6:15-7 p.m.: Casaveda 6:45-7:30 p.m.: Professor & The Jet Sets 7:30-8:30 p.m.: The Bright Light Social Hour 7:30-8:30 p.m.: The Joy Formidable 8-9 p.m.: Watch the Duck 9-10:15 p.m.: Bastille 9-10:30 p.m.: Death Cab For Cutie 9:30 to 11 p.m.: Steve Aoki>> Saturday, April 30: 12:45-1:30 p.m.: Matt Calderin Trio 1:30-2:15 p.m.: Trey Libra fka Jacob Izrael 1:30-2:15 p.m.: Fireside Prophets 2-3 p.m.: The Babys 2:45-3:45 p.m.: Salt N Pepa (featuring Spinderella) 2:45-4 p.m.: Gold nger 3:30-5 p.m.: Rick Spring eld 4:15-5:45 p.m.: The Roots 4:30-5:45 p.m.: Flogging Molly 6 to 7 p.m.: Bobby Lee Rodgers 6:45-7:30 p.m.: Ethan Parker Band 6:45-7:3 p.m.: Half Deezy 7:30-8:45 p.m.: Butch Trucks & The Freight Train Band 8-8:30 p.m.: Devon Baldwin 8-9:15 p.m.: Capital Cities 9-10:30 p.m.: G-Eazy 9:15-10:45 p.m.: O.A.R.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 28-MAY 4, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19The Dish: Horiatiki salad with chicken The Place: Aladdin Mediterranean Grill, 3896 Northlake Blvd, Palm Beach Gardens; 622-1660 or aladdinmediterra-neangrill.com. The Price: $10.95 The Details: I call this a plate of refreshment. Horiatiki, essentially a Greek salad without the greens, is composed of diced tomatoes, cucumbers and onion and topped with chopped grilled chicken. The tender chicken had been marinated and rubbed in a secret blend of spices before it was grilled, the server told me. That blend, which was slightly aromatic, was a perfect complement to the slightly acid bite of the salad, which made for a lunch that was both good and good for you. Q „ Scott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE If ever there was a go-toŽ place for breakfast and lunch in the Northwood Village section of West Palm Beach, this is it. Owner John Biederwolf said the key to his This Is It Cafs success lies in one word: Freshness. We look to make everything we can fresh,Ž Mr. Biederwolf said. We cook whole turkeys and carve right off them for our sandwiches and turkey dishes. We make all of our soups and chicken salads fresh, daily. Were all about fresh-ness here.Ž Theyre all about the unusual as well.We have quite a few unique items, such as salmon cakes with eggs and grits for breakfast,Ž he said. We do chicken waffles. We do dolphin fingers. We also have a sandwich called the Hawaiian ($6.35), which is grilled chicken salad with American cheese and pineapple on grilled raisin bread. The flavors are great. I have customers that come in three or four times a week, every week, who never order anything other than that.Ž Mr. Biederwolf comes with a restaurant pedigree. His brother Rick owns the popular Royal Caf in Jupiter and his parents ran the This Is It Pub, a North-wood watering hole where he worked for most of the 1980s as a young man. I learned every recipe and how to cook everything they served there,Ž he said. I dont cook so much these days. I work the front of the house now. But I have a fantastic chef, Rob Bieber, from the Florida Culinary Institute, who really shines in the kitchen.Ž When the family sold This Is It Pub, Mr. Biederwolf struck out on his own for a while, working at the Buccaneer in Palm Beach Shores. He left the res-taurant business for 17 years, pursuing a career in real estate, until the economic downturn hit. When the market started trending downward, my family owned a building, which we had been leasing out to a res-taurant,Ž he said. When that tenant left, my brother urged me to take it over in 2009. That was probably one of the best decisions Ive ever made in my life.Ž The rest is history. The 3,000-squarefoot restaurant, which seats 95 inside and 30 more on a patio, offers a nautical dcor and a menu that aims to please. A lot of my menu items came from my brother Rick,Ž he said. Others started out as specials and were such hits that now theyre mainstays on the menu.Ž These include the Super Combo Turkey Club ($8.25) and the aforementioned Hawaiian Chicken Salad Melt ($6.35) for lunch and the Catfish, Eggs and Grits ($8.95) for breakfast. I also do a breakfast special every day, which is two eggs, bacon, homefries or grits, toast and coffee or tea for $4.95,Ž Mr. Biederwolf said. Thats obviously very popular, as are our seafood chow-der and our salad with either chicken or blackened mahi.Ž Unlike many restaurateurs who keep it simple when theyre home, Mr. Bieder-wolf said he enjoys cooking up a storm for friends and family. Last weekend I made chicken picatta over angel hair pasta,Ž he said. A couple of nights prior to that I made chicken cordon bleu over rice pilaf with a side of fresh green beans. I have four daughters who have friends and one of my wifes best friends was over as well. My house is pretty popular, because everybody knows Im usually going to be cooking something.Ž John BiederwolfAge: 54 Original Hometown: Juno Beach Restaurant: This Is It Caf; 444 24th St, West Palm Beach; 655-3301. Mission: We are a neighborhood restaurant where you know youll get great food at great prices, served by smiling faces in a friendly, clean environment.Ž Cuisine: American-style home cooking Training: No formal training, but has long been part of a family-run restaurant business. What advice would you give someone who wants to be a restaurateur or chef? Dont try to be something youre not. Find your niche and stick with it.Ž Q In the kitchen with...JOHN BIEDERWOLF, This Is It Caf, West Palm Beach BY STEVEN J.
