A2 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 12-18, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARYWhat’s in your wallet?Nobody asks a man what he has in his wallet. He has a man card. He doesnt have to think about it. It just is; and though the scales may be tipped against him by some prejudice of iden-tity or difference, being a man isnt one of them. A man card is like a gender-based hall pass that gets you instant social, legal and material advantage in most cultures, including our own. Women, on the other hand, carry a woman card. They do have to think about it. The woman card comes with a large balance due and the expectation its bearer will run a lifelong, gender-based deficit. Receiving a womans card at birth automatically incurs indebted-ness that must be overcome in a mans world. A womans talent, intellect, pas-sion and moral character may carry her and her gender forward, only to have opportunities foreclosed by a glass ceil-ing. Then some brave Amazonian soul breaks through and women rise up and meet with success, but the man card still gets played. Woe to the woman who is or aspires to be the first anything where only the man card has currency. Just ask Hillary Clinton„or any woman, really. Women begin two lengths behind the starting line in every race that men dominate. The habit is customary, even unto the founding of the nation. For example, the U.S. Constitution did not originally grant women any spe-cific rights. Abigail Adams anticipated the oversight before the framers put pen to paper. She wrote her husband, John Adams, encouraging him and the Continental Congress to not forget the ladies once the nations independence was won. She wrote, I long to hear that you have declared an independency. And, by the way, in the new code of laws which I suppose it will be necessary for you to make, I desire you would remember the ladies and be more generous and favorable to them than your ancestors. Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands. Remember, all men would be tyrants if they could. If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies, we are determined to foment a rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation.Ž She knew of what she spoke. It took a civil war and the Congressional battle over the 15th Amendment for women to get the issue of their enfranchise-ment on the table. The 15th Amendment passed Congress and subsequently rati-fied by the states in 1870. But it granted only African-American men the right to vote. It took women fomenting another 50 years before the U.S. House of Representatives saw fit to consider an amend-ment giving women the same privilege. Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucretia Mott, Alice Paul and thousands of their followers joined in the fight for the right. In 1919, they won approval by Congress of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote. The states ratified the amend-ment the following year. The U.S Treasury is honoring these early feminists. The images of Anthony, Stanton, Mott and Paul will be incor-porated into the $10 bill. It is a timely gesture but for a reason in addition to the obvious one. The only specific right granted to women by the Constitution is the right to vote; and nada, nothing more. Whoa, millennial gals might say. How can that be? A bright lawyer pipes up (the first woman named partner in a previously all-male firm), Arent women protected from sex discrimina-tion under the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment?Ž Well, thats debatable. The recently departed Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia didnt think so. His originalist view of the matter was the 14th Amendment did not outlaw sex discrimination. Said Scalia, The only issue is whether it prohibits it. It doesnt. Nobody ever thought that thats what it meant. Nobody ever voted for that. If the current society wants to outlaw discrimination by sex, hey, we have things called legislatures, and they enact things called laws.Ž Its the type of jurisprudence that raises questions once thought settled; and, given its progenitor, should register an uh-ohŽ for those witnessing the sexist, racist, and contentious gender politics roiling the race for the presidency. The Republican Partys presumptive nomi-nee is using his man card to defame the Democrats leading candidate, a woman. She is loud,Ž lacks strength,Ž and, most damning of all, she is a woman. Said he, Frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I dont think shed get 5 percent of the vote...Ž In other words, no women need apply for the job. The empathy accorded Clintons gender is the only qualification she can claim. In 1982, the Equal Rights Amendment was defeated three states short needed for ratification. No ERA means the Con-stitution does not explicitly guarantee the rights it protects are held equally by all citizens, without regard to sex. So, whats in your wallet?

OPINIONIce cream nationThe time has come, my fellow capitalists, to begin planning for the vast sea of opportunities certain to arise in the Ameri-can economy only months from now. It will begin in Texas and extend to Florida. By the middle of May next year, weather along the Texas border will be warm enough to fry an egg on a rattle-snakes back. Thats ice cream weather. Donald Trump will be eating taco salads prepared in the Trump Tower grill in New York and flown to Washington to be delivered to the back door of the White House. (There, throughout the history of the United States, small brown and large black delivery men frequently have been required to report, which will lend a com-fortable familiarity to the routine). And in Texas, meanwhile, the largest force of pick and shovel operators assem-bled since FDRs Work Progress Admin-istration of the 1930s might be riding into the Lone Star State on Greyhound buses and the tops of train cars and in the backs of watermelon or hay trucks „ or maybe theyll just be walking down that ol lone-some road, as Woody Guthrie said, with their two-dollar shoes a-hurtin their feet, and their cornbread and peas a-hurtin their bellies. At least thats what I envisioned at first. More likely, though, theyll come in Ford, Chevy and Dodge pickups, or on Harley-Davidson choppers, the trucks and leather jackets sporting NRA stickers and Take Back Our Country slogans and Make America Great Again mantras. Theyll come to work, because that wall has to be tall. Fifty feet tall. And it has to be long. Eight hundred miles long. And it has to be American „ by delegation, not by direct action. You see, the army of workers wont be coming to work on the wall, because thats too hard. Mr. Trump has already delegated that job „ between bites of his taco salad „ to the Mexicans. So Im afraid it will not be made in the U.S.A.Ž At first, I was discouraged by that because I thought we could all use tough-ening up, like our parents or grandparents. I envisioned us all wandering into Texas still fat and potato pale next May, after Mr. Trump has been in the White House for four months. But by September or October wed be as brown as nut-berries and as lean and sinewy as beef jerky. At first I thought, Damn, the rich boy comes up with a great idea, one that could provide 1 million well-paying jobs to eager young obese Americans, and then he just up and gives it away to Mexico. We need them to keep sneaking in here illegally so we can underpay them to harvest tomatoes and watermelons and to put roofs on our houses. We cant have em building border walls just when these new gated communi-ties are going up all over Florida.Ž Thats what I thought, but now I see I was wrong. I want to apologize to Mr. Trump and all his supporters for under-estimating his brilliant strategic thinking. Now I see Mr. Trumps economic strategy, and I applaud him. He is going to cre-ate millions of jobs for Americans „ but not carrying shovels and picks. And not even driving bulldozers or cement trucks. No, his strategy is to make the United States the most powerful ice cream nation the globe has ever seen. He will maneuver those Mexicans around the dance floor of international politics like a master, and set em up so we can sell em millions of tons of ice cream and Pepsi, the traditional Republican soft drink of choice. So now, I recommend that we all go into the ice cream business, or the soda pop business, because its hot in Texas. In the summer. And those Mexicans building that wall are going to want to buy a hell of a lot of ice cream and soda pop during their siestas. (Do Mexicans still take siestas? Ive only ever seen Mexicans working. Hard. I have not seen Mexicans taking siestas). We need ice cream makers and bowls and spoons and cones. We need cows to produce the milk and cream, and refriger-ated trucks to deliver it all. And best of all? We need sugar, and lots of it. Thats why I expect Mr. Trump to get even more practical. Heres how hell do it. Mr. Trump is supported by Gov. Rick Scott of Florida. Who is, in turn, the darling of such Florida sugar honchos as the Fanjul brothers and the owners of U.S. Sugar. Who together grow about 400,000 acres of cane around Lake Okeechobee. To make enough ice cream and soda pop to supply the wall builders, therefore, were going to have to grow more sugar. And that means grow it where it grows best: in the Everglades. So its clear to me that Mr. Trump has long since figured out what we all know, if were honest: Its time to do away with the Glades, which have cost Americans far too much in money and anxiety already, while just sitting there doing nothing. Mr. Trumps plan is typically audacious: Hes by God going to muck out that worth-less and dangerous Lake Okeechobee, extend the vast system of canals and pumps American taxpayers already maintain in the 700,000-acre Everglades Agricultural Area around the lake for the sugar barons, and grow sugar cane from the Kissimmee River valley south to Florida Bay. Can you imagine? The jobs will be unheard of! The ice cream economy will make a war-time economy look like a recession. I like chocolate, myself. What about you? And Ill bet those Mexicans do, too.

Mr. Gingrich recommended Donald Trumps book, The Art of the Deal,Ž to readers. The anonymous writer then recommended Mr. Trump to voters, comparing him to a man a homeowner should hire to get rid of raccoons in the basement, no matter what he looks or smells like. This is Mr. Molloys response. I have gone through the five stages of grief regarding all presi-dential candidates. I was in denial for a long time, but now I am at accep-tance. Mark Twain said Americans get the candidate they deserve. And they will: As I write it will either be Mrs. Clinton or Mr. Trump. I dont have a political party, or unfortunately, any candidate to support for the most impor-tant position in our world. But my lifes work has been about my l ove, my pas sion, my belief in this country. That sounds like something I might set up for a punch line. It aint. So: what if the smelly, alcoholic, muchmarried, b utt-cr acked guy the email describes „ the man that you hire to get the raccoons out of the basement „ lied to you about raccoons actually being in the basement? What if he created your belief and fear that there were raccoons in the basement, even went around the neighbor-hood scaring all the old couples, the work-ing people who dont have time to check the basement, and folks who want to believe there are raccoons in the basement, for unhappy reasons of their own? That would be a great businessman: Creating a demand for him to fill a need that doesnt exist. When Mr. Trump says we should make America great again, I have to gently sug-gest: America is great. Right now. We have prosperity and freedoms that no other country enjoys. You hear that phrase all the time, but we really freakin do. I know a lot about the criminal justice system in the United States and the criminal justice systems in other countries, and ours is, not perfect, but amazing and just. We are a strong, compassionate, and intelligent nation. And that the United States is a strong vibrant nation is how we are perceived around the world. The wall is impossible to build, by every estimate, Republican, Democrat, architect, designer, construction person, anyone who has built a wall or held a shovel. The whole idea is a sad joke that would be a lot fun-nier if it just didnt symbolize hate. The last country that built a wall that revealed a similar symbol of ugliness of the soul, albeit to keep people in, was the Communist-built Berlin Wall, and they killed people from that walls vantage point. The cynical idea about the wall that could never be built serves no purpose other than to get applause at a rally. Illegal immigration from Mexico has gone down by the hundreds of thousands of people over the past few years. It is neither an economic problem nor a criminal one. A loathing exists in the country I cant understand. A disgust I cant understand. I have not seen so much hate against our country by our country since the Oklahoma City bombing. Disagree with the candidates. Disparage their views. But dont hate them. Dont drown in that unreasonable bitterness. I dont dislike Mr. Trump. He is a very intelligent, manipulative business-man with a cynicism that is flat-out stun-ning (and successful), because he knows we cant build any kind of wall, but he knows how it plays to the crowd and has no com-punction using it. Kind of fearless in a way: I think he genuinely doesnt care what he says as long as cheers and applause follow it. But dearly beloved, he knows we cant renegotiate our business agree-ment with China: We dont have one. He knows that. He knows almost everything he states is incorrect, purposefully mislead-ing, and in a very weird way, inspiring to the folks he was never one of and never will be. The contempt that cynicism shows is impressive, deformed and astonishing. The only victim, so far, of Mr. Trumps campaign is the truth. But the other truth is: We dont care. One of Robert Penn Warrens characters in All the Kings MenŽ offered advice to the Huey Long-type candidate: Whatever you do, Willie, stir em up, make em mad, even mad at you. But never have them think.Ž Now, we have to think about what were doing, with the smarts and bravery we pos-sess. Q MOLLOY roger

Prob-lem is, my accountant and his wife dont especially want a dog, especially one that would be their responsibility when their son goes to college in four years. I wish there was some way we could have a dog just for the short term,Ž he said. Usually, when parents who dont want a pet ask me about getting one for the kids, I tell them to hold firm: If parents, who have ultimate responsibility for the animal, arent interested, I think its best for them not to give in to the pleading. In this case, though, I had a suggestion. Why dont you look into raising a guide dog puppy? You get the pup when hes 8 weeks old, and he goes for formal training when hes 13 to 15 months old. That would give your son a taste of dog ownership, but you wouldnt be left holding the leash when he leaves home.Ž (Visit for more information.) I dont know if theyll actually do it, but it got me thinking about other ways that pet-loving kids can play with, care for and train animals without necessarily bringing one home to a parent whos allergic or sim-ply not interested „ at least not in a full-time, lifelong commitment. The following options are some compromises that may meet the needs of kids and parents alike.Q Read to shelter pets. When kids read to animals, the activity provides socialization and human interaction for dogs and cats and improves childrens reading skills. Shelters that offer such programs include Animal Rescue League of Berks County, Penn sylv ania; Bitter Root Humane Association in Hamilton, Mont.; and Panhandle Animal Shelter in Pon-deray, Idaho. Contact your local shelter, library or public school to see if a program is available in your area, or if theyd like to start one. Q Volunteer at a shelter or sanctuary. Depending on a childs age, he or she may be able to volunteer to help feed, groom or walk shelter pets. Parents may be required to participate as well to provide supervision. Even if they cant volunteer hands-on with animals at a shelter, kids can raise money with lemonade stands or bake sales or help with set-up and take-down at adoption events. Q Go to camp. At Animal Friends Canine Good Manners Camp in Pitts-burgh, kids spend five days working with camp counselors to teach shelter dogs the basics of good behavior so theyll be more adoptable. Critter Camp at Helen Woodward Animal Center in San Diego offers daylong and weeklong programs that teach animal handling and socializa-tion and let kids explore animal-related careers. Another program to check out is Friends for Life Camp through SPCA LA in Los Angeles. Kids who are interested in becoming veterinarians may want to attend vet camp.Ž Among the veterinary schools that offer camps of up to a week are Auburn, Colorado State, Mississippi State, Ohio State, Purdue, Tufts, Univer-sity of Georgia, University of Penn sylv ania and University of Tennessee at Knoxville. Camps are geared to children of different ages. Search camps for animal loversŽ or vet campŽ to find other options. Q Foster kittens. Shelters always need foster homes for kittens, especially during late spring and summer, which is known as kitten season.Ž Q Apprentice with a professional or amateur show dog handler. Some owners are happy to have a junior show their dog, particularly when the dog has finished his championship but loves to be in the show ring,Ž says Phyllis M. Potter-field of Charleston, W. Va. Q PET TALESPet versus parentParents say no to a pet? Here are six ways kids can still be involved with animalsReading to pets at a shelter is one way children can enjoy the company of animals even if they can’t have one at home.

It is very important to know what to do „ and what not to do „ if you discover newborn kittens in your yard, in your neighborhood, or around your office. First, when you see newborn kittens, resist the urge to take them to a shelter. Kittens less than four weeks old have little chance of survival if separated from their mothers and taken to a shel-ter. In fact, cats and kittens are the most at-risk animals for euthanasia in Palm Beach County. Most discoveries of newborn kittens dont call for human assistance. No intervention is generally best until kit-tens can eat on their own. Before scooping them up, please remember the phrase mother knows best.Ž The kittens best chance for survival is staying with Mom. Newborn kittens need a mothers care and antibodies from her milk. The mother also will train her kittens as only a mother can. Quietly observe from a distance to see if the mother is present. Shell need to leave her litter for short periods of time in order to find food for herself. If the kittens are clean and sleeping in a heap, Moms most likely out finding food. Never interfere with the kittens or their space as long as the mother is around. Do not touch them. Do not cre-ate a shelter. Do not try to keep them warm. Do not feed them. This may stress her and she may abandon her family. However, you can provide food and water. Place containers far enough away from the nest so you wont disturb mom and kittens, or draw predators (raccoons) to the area. Keep dogs and children far away. When the kittens are eating on their own, this is the time to act. If Mom is friendly and can be handled easily, its best to take her and the kittens indoors until they are old enough to be spayed or neutered (so they cant have babies themselves) and then adopted into new homes. The mother should be spayed (to prevent future kittens) and placed in an adoptive home, or returned to her territory (based on available shelter space, temperament and neighbor senti-ment). If Mom isnt friendly to humans, she needs to be trapped and spayed, but not now. Contact us and together well make a plan for trapping Mom and babies. Once kittens eat on their own they can be safely separated from Mom. You can begin the socialization process in your home or find someone to adopt them. The mother can then be trapped, spayed, vaccinated and returned to her outdoor home.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 12-18, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYdont respect us. These toads, theyre funny. They just look at you and sort of say, bring it on. Theyre not afraid of you. They just stand there,Ž says Ms. Stancel. As with lionfish and pythons „ other exotic species that dont belong here and harm the environment „ killing the invasive toad is allowed and encouraged. What constitutes a humane way of doing that, however, remains a hot topic of dis-cussion. Whats not up for debate, in neighborhoods that are besieged by the toads, is that they must go. I was out with the trash cans and saw four big-ass toads but I didnt think much about it,Ž recalls retired Senior Judge Radford Sturgis. A few days later, he let Chips, his dachshund, out in the back-yard. When he returned a few minutes later, the dog was lying on its side. He didnt move. I tried to put some hydrogen peroxide in his mouth but his teeth were clenched. I took the hose and rinsed out his mouth. But by the time I got him to the emergency hospital he had passed. It was all within 15 minutes.Ž When he returned home, he searched the backyard, where he found several cane toads. The veterinary team at ASH, Animal Specialty Hospital, in Naples, saw two cane cases just last week. As rains pick up into the summer, they expect to see more. Dogs will come in salivating, pawing at the mouth. They have brick red mucous membranes,Ž explains Niqole Varani, hos-pital administrator and emergency vet-erinarian at ASH. After you see your first case, you know exactly what to look for.Ž Two parotid glands that run along the toads back, just behind its eyes, carry bufotoxin, a milky-white poison. When a dog or other animal agitates or otherwise comes in contact with the toad, it releases the toxin, which can be lethal, particularly for smaller pets. Some dogs will be para-lyzed or convulsing. Well flush them out (with water) for 20 to 30 minutes. Then we treat with activated charcoal,Ž says Dr. Virani. Most dogs that come in survive, but some do not. When the summer rains come in is when we see them (cane toads). They like the humidity and they like the heat,Ž says Lake Worth veterinarian Archie Kleopfer. Hes seen his share of cane toad exposure cases in his 32 years of practice. Cats are too smart, they hardly get poi-soned. Dogs „ we wont say theyre dumb „ but they like to play and some-times they bite into (the toads)ƒ Ive seen an 85-pound dog laid flat. Some dogs suc-cumb to it and they go into cardiopulmo-nary collapse. Or they have a seizure and they cant come out of it.Ž Pet owners who suspect their animal has been exposed should first flush the animals mouth out with water as quickly as possible, then take it to a veterinarian. The toxin can cause irritation in humans and is particularly dangerous for small children. While dogs are the most common victims of cane toad exposure, cats and even fish arent safe. Realtor Jim Woodard returned from a camping trip after his neighbors called to tell him that the koi fish in his back yard pond had all died. He saw a cane toad as big as his fist jumping around his deck. The toads eggs are toxic as well, and Mr. Woodard theorizes that some were laid in his pond. He shot the toad with three pel-lets and it hopped away. Later, he spotted the same toad by his pond. This time, he pinned it down with bricks and let it die. If you see these things, youve got to kill them. Theyre coming for our dogs and cats. Theyve got to go,Ž he said. Unlike other amphibians, even invasive ones, the ick and gross-out factor that cane toads engender is almost universal among those who encounter them. Perhaps its their flat brown-gray color, their impassive countenances or the men-acing dots that sit in two triangular sacks on their backs carrying the bufotoxin. Their call, a cacophonic jackhammer rumble, does nothing for its image either. In Australia, the widely reviled toad has invaded and wreaked environmental damage to a swath that covers nearly 400,000 square miles. In Florida, the last time the cane toad infestation was mapped, their number spread from Miami-Dade, up through Broward into Palm Beach then across the state over Lake Okeechobee to Tampa. There are pockets in Lee County and theyve been showing up in Collier Coun-ty. They seem to have skipped over Char-lotte County. Between Fort Myers and Sarasota, they have not been found there. I dont have a good explanation for that. Their distribu-tion doesnt make any immediate sense to me,Ž said Audrey Wilson, a graduate stu-dent at the University of Florida who has been monitoring the toads and is working with Professor Steve Johnson and others to update the distribution maps. People who encounter the toads can report them using an app from Before they kill a toad, they can email photos to Professor Johnson at the University of Florida at to confirm that it is in fact a cane toad. Ms. Wilson has also spent more than a year trying to determine whether or not the toads have invaded natural areas like the Everglades. She has set up frog log-gers, remote recording devices, to listen for their distinct call. So far, she has not heard them. Its good news for our native species,Ž she says. After spending years studying the creatures, does she too find them abhorrent? I find it hard not to get attached to my study species. I saw them in their native range and I do find them interest-ing „ how theyve been so successful in so many places. Im not as disgusted as most people.Ž The cane toads natural range runs from Brazil and northwest up into Central America and into northern Mexico. A research paper from 1968 titled The Ecology of the Neotropical Toad, Bufo Marninus, in South Florida,Ž by Thomas Krakauer, provides what may be the most reliable account of how the toad made its way here. Toads were released at Canal Point in Belle Glade in Palm Beach County as far back as 1936 to fight pests in sugar cane fields. The toads died off. And while there were other attempts to intro-duce the toads into fields, those popula-tions didnt take hold either. Then, in 1955, toads escaped from an animal importer at Miami International Airport. The animals then began traveling through that citys canal system and by the mid 1960s, at least one Dade Coun-ty commissioner was proposing that a bounty be placed on the toads. Some exotic pet dealers still sell the toads, and its theorized that occasionally, those crit-ters are released or escape, contributing to the infestation as well. From a purely anecdotal perspective, I would say that cane toads are spottily distributed in our region but where they are found their abundance can be exceed-ingly high. For example, where I lived in San Carlos Park on a cool damp night we had a density of about 20 toads per lot (0.1 acres)! However, if you went three streets over, still in San Carlos Park, you wouldnt find any. I have visited many sub-divisions and I would say cane toads were present in about 50 percent of them. Fast-forward 10 years, I think they will be everywhere and in huge numbers „ no direct data to support this, just what I am observing,Ž wrote John E. Herman, assistant professor of wildlife biology at Florida Gulf Coast University. And so it is that we find ourselves with Ms. Stancel in her Fort Myers neighbor-hood. The small-framed surgical techni-cian shows off her BB gun, which looks like a Glock. Carolin Lehnert, who has redone her landscaping and installed a buried screen perimeter around her yard to keep the toads out, peeks down drain-age grates. Jerry Higby, a wildlife trapper from up the street, tags along tonight, but he often works solo or for hire. He makes his living removing gators or raccoons from prop-erties. Recently, some clients have called asking him to remove cane toads as well. In his neighborhood, he hunts pro bono. I go to the (drainage) grate with my machete and get them,Ž he brings his arm down twice, reenacting the thrusts he uses to impale the toads. Mr. Higby is an animal lover. So are Ms. Lehnert and Ms. Stancel. Thats why when the topic of killing the toads come up, the standard answer is, I dont want the PETA folks (animal rights activists) coming after me.Ž But then, the hunter, any hunter, will tell you just how its done. Some people swear by smacking and thrusting with the business end of a shovel. Others use a frog gig, a gad-get used for harvesting frog legs that impales the toad on spikes. This method can prove messy, however, since remov-ing the toads from the spikes one by one requires hands-on contact. The Univer-sity of Florida recommends the follow-ing humane procedure: Purchase a small tube of benzocaine ointment (used as a pain-killer for tooth-aches and teething.) Take a strip of oint-ment about one inch long (more for very large toads) and spread it down the mid-line of the neck and back of the toad, In 5-10 minutes, the toad will be groggy; in 15-20 minutes it should be unconscious, and in about 30-40 minutes it will be dead or close to dead. At this point, put the frog in a plastic container or plastic bag and freeze it for three days.Ž For the people dealing with infestations in their neighborhoods, the instruc-tions are laughable. For Ms. Stancel, a quick BB to the back of the head at close range does the job faster and appears to be more humane. She carries around a pooper-scooper to easily cart off the carcasses. Im an animal lover,Ž she says. Im involved with animal rescue. I wont kill a spider.Ž On this night, however, there are no toads to be found. Ms. Stancel and Ms. Lehnert bagged two of them the night before. Since she started doing this two years ago, Ms. Stancel has killed more than 130 toads. Shes stopped counting though, because she hunts every night during cane toad season. More and more neighbors have asked her to come check their yards, so a patrol can take 45 min-utes to an hour. Shes happy to do it. Its apparent that she relishes this mission that shes taken on voluntarily. Shes com-mitted to the fight to keep her dogs safe, she says. With a grin and swagger, gun in one hand and scooper in the other, she keeps scanning the bushes with the end-game in mind. My veterinarian says its possible to hunt a species to extinction,Ž she says.

ADVERTISEMENT ASK THE VEIN EXPERT ASK THE VEIN EXPERT Thomas Ashton, Medical Director, MD, FACPHQuestion: Why should I get my varicose veins treated? This is a question that even your primary care doctor may not be able to answer. Many of our patients tell me that their doctor advises if they dont bother you, dont bother them.Ž The fact is that even the appearance of your legs is not always a reliable guide to the extent of venous disease. Swelling (edema) is one sign that has many causes, but if this problem persists after treating other causes, chances are high that the venous or the lymphatic system is not functioning properly. The diagnosis can only be determined by having an ultrasound of the superficial and deep veins of the legs. Also the size of your varicose veins is not a reliable indicator of the extent of venous disease. Research has shown that even the common symptoms of leg pain, leg cramps, restless legs, and itching occur years after venous insufficiency is demonstrated on ultrasound testing. Venous disease is progressive and will never improve without treatment. The slow progress of venous disease and the aging process increases the risk of blood clots and significant skin changes leading to ulceration. T he eventual o utcome without treatment is stasis ulceration (an open sore on the ankle). So why get your varicose veins treated? You will look and feel better as you reduce chances of future complications.

This flight marks the first time the organization is flying predominantly Korean War veterans, who have been waiting years for this opportunity. The veterans will be flown to Washington for a day dedicated to honor them and to visit and reflect at the memorials built to commemorate their service and sacrifices. The public is invited to attend the red, white and blue welcome home at Palm Beach International Airport the evening of the May 14 to cheer and thank the veterans upon their return. The Honor Flight begins early, with veterans and guardians arriving at Palm Beach International Airport about 4 a.m. May 14 to get checked in and loaded aboard a chartered American Airlines A321. The contingent arrives at Reagan National to a welcoming party. With a police escort throughout the day, four motor coaches will transport the group to visit the U.S. Marine Memorial (Iwo Jima), Arlington National Cemetery for the Changing of the Guard, the World War II Memorial and the Korean War Memorial. The flight is scheduled to return to West Palm Beach at 8:20 p.m., when Operation Welcome Home begins. The procession of veterans is traditionally welcomed home by hundreds of people from the community, including mem-bers of the military, community and civic groups, family and friends, who amass in the airport, awaiting the veterans arrival.

A14 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 12-18, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY HEALTHY LIVINGDealing with language problems after a strokeMany people have problems speaking and understanding speech following a stroke. This difficulty with communica-tion is called aphasia. It usually comes on suddenly as a result of a stroke or head injury, but brain tumors and infec-tions of the brain can gradually cause language problems as well. According to the National Aphasia Association, the most common cause of aphasia is stroke. Approximately 25 percent to 40 percent of stroke survi-vors acquire aphasia. It can occur in people of all ages, races, nationalities and gender, affecting as many as 80,000 stroke victims each year. Recovery from aphasia depends on the severity of the damage to the brain and on how quickly treatment is begun. As a Primary Stroke Center, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Centers mul-tidisciplinary team is committed to ensuring that stroke patients are seen and treated as quickly as possible. The stroke team, led by medical director Dr. Arun Talkad, includes emergency department physicians, neurologists and radiologists who specialize in stroke care. The team is available around-theclock to respond when a patient with stroke symptoms comes to the hospital. Depending on the exact nature of the injury, the symptoms of aphasia can vary. Though many types of aphasia exist, there are three main categories: Q Nonfluent aphasia occurs when the injury is near the left front of the brain. With nonfluent aphasia, a person has problems getting words out and gen-erally speaks in very short sentences. The person may also leave words out, so sentences become short and choppy. With this type of aphasia, the person lis-tening usually understands the meaning. A person with nonfluent aphasia may understand what is being said to them, but they know they are having problems speaking and may get frustrated. Q Fluent aphasia results from damage to the middle part of the language center of the brain. A person with fluent aphasia uses long, complex sentences that dont make sense. They may also use words that dont make sense or are incorrectly used. The person generally doesnt understand whats being said and may not be aware of their problems speaking. Q Global aphasia is caused by extensive damage to the brains language center. Someone with global aphasia has severe problems speaking and under-standing language.Treatment of aphasiaRecovering from aphasia is a slow process, and few people completely regain their language skills. Early treat-ment is important and involves working with a speech-language pathologist to help the person relearn language skills. The speech-language pathologist begins with simple tasks such as nam-ing objects and gradually building to more complex language skills. In some cases, the person may need to learn ways to make up for the loss of his or her language skills by using gestures or drawings. Communication-based therapies that consist of more natural interactions involving real-life communicative chal-lenges may also be used with support from caregivers.Family and friendsIt is important to note that aphasia does not affect a persons intelligence. A person may have trouble retrieving words and names, but the persons intel-ligence is basically intact. Family and friends may feel awkward when they see how hard it is for the stroke survivor to communicate. In some cases, they avoid the person because they do not know how to help. The good news is that there are many ways you can help a person with aphasia: Use simple sentence and speak sl owly. Dont finish sentences, correct errors or speak for the person. Only talk about one thing at a time.Reduce distractions by turning off the television, radio or moving to a quiet place. Write down key words or a short sentence to help explain something. Use a book of words or photos to help with conversations. Use drawings or gestures to help get your meaning across. Include the person in conversations when possible. Make sure you have the persons attention before talking. Do not speak too loudly „ aphasia does not affect a persons hearing. Educate others about aphasia, so that they know what causes it and how to interact with their friend who is suffer-ing from this condition. In honor of May being Stroke Awareness Month, Palm Beach Gardens Medi-cal Center and St. Marys Medical Cen-ter, both part of The Advanced Neuro-science Network, are teaming up with Palm Beach Gardens Fire Rescue on May 13 to offer free stroke risk assess-ments for the community.

HEALTHY LIVINGHelp available to ease anxiety disordersTen-year-old Brandon waved goodbye and ran with his friends to board the bus for the class trip to the amusement park. Although his mother, Tara, loved to see Brandon so happy, she was simultaneously wracked with trepidation „ anticipating every conceivable catastrophe that could happen. What if the bus was in an accident? What if Brandon was hurt on a ride? What if Brandon wandered away from the group and the teachers were not paying close enough attention? Realistically, Tara knew she shouldn t be concerned, but she couldnt stop her worry. Tara had called the school several times for reassurance that there would be enough teachers and volunteer parents to properly supervise the students. Tara had even considered keeping Brandon home from the trip but her husband, Mike, had put his foot down. He told her she had to get a grip and to stop sheltering their son. Tara had been a worrier her whole life. She was always imagining the worse case scenario and would stay awake many nights playing and re-playing excruciating scripts in her head. Tara knew that her excessive worry was not only taking a huge toll on herself but was also becoming a burden to her family.We will all experience anxiety with some regularity. Anxiety can not only be an appropriate reaction to lifes stresses, but also serve an important function in alerting us to be on guard when difficult or dangerous situations arise. And, anxiety isn't always bad or maladaptive. But some of us, like Tara in the fictionalized vignette ab ove, may f ind that we are so tormented by anxiety that we may suf-fer terribly, and lose our ability to function effectively, with a significant decline in our enjoyment of everyday life. This extreme level of anxiety may fall under the classification of an anxiety disor-der. The Anxiety and Depression Associa-tion of America estimates that almost one out of five people suffer from an anxiety disorder, making it the most common men-tal disorder in the United States. A University of Minnesota study states: Anxiety disorder is characterized by emo-tional, physical, and behavioral symptoms that create an unpleasant feeling that is typically described as uneasiness, fear, or worry. The worry is frequently accom-panied by physical symptoms, especially fatigue, headaches, muscle tension, muscle aches, difficulty swallowing, trembling, irri-tability, sweating, and hot flashes. Emotion-al symptoms include fear, racing thoughts, and a feeling of impending doom. People suffering from anxiety often withdraw and seek to avoid people or certain places.Ž Family members of those who suffer from anxiety may become frustrated and impatient when they dont understand a loved ones emotional state. Many experts concur that anxiety disorders develop from a compli-cated mix of possible risk fac-tors including ones genetics, brain chemistry, personality, family life, and the accumula-tion of ones life experiences. There are several different categories of anxiety disor-ders, including:Q Generalized Anxiety Disorder (these individuals experience excessive anxi-ety and worry over many months, with several of the symptoms described above.) € Panic disorder is a state when a person experiences or anticipates panic attacks (sudden periods of intense fear that may include palpi-tations or accelerated heart rate, sweating, trembling, sensations of shortness of breath, or choking, and/or feelings of impending doom.)Q Social Anxiety Disorder is a state when people fear social situations, anticipating they may feel embarrassed, judged, rejected, or fearful of offending others.Q Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a common, chronic and long-lasting disorder in which a person has uncontrollable, re-occurring thoughts (obsessions) and behaviors (compulsions) that he or she feels the urge to repeat over and over. (definition by NIMH) Family members of those who suffer from anxiety may become frustrated and impatient when they dont understand their loved ones emotional state. Fortunately, in recent years, there has been significant progress in the treatment of anxiety disorders. Many mental health professionals have actually shifted their treatment orientations to include empiri-cally tested interventions that have offered emotional relief and significantly improved quality of life to countless individuals. There has been a traditional therapeutic view that it would be important to uncover the underlying causes and meaning of anx-ious symptoms as a means to ultimately relieve anxious symptoms. And, in fact, there can be tremendous value in gaining insight and perspective on ones distress. But, unfortunately sometimes knowing what causes anxiety is not enough to help us get through the distress. Another therapeutic view, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, purports that people have many irrational beliefs and fears that will impact ones mood and behavior. Helping people challenge and reconsider these entrenched negative thoughts can be an important step toward relief. Drs. Martin Seif and Sally Winston, cofounders of the Anxiety and Depression Association of America have embraced a current philosophy that stresses helping people live fully productive lives while learning to tolerate and distance them-selves from distressing thoughts and fears. In a recent book they co-authored for men-tal health professionals, they highlighted their view of the three general characteris-tics of highly anxious people. Q A sensitivity to certain triggers „ which elicits fear and a physiological arousal within their nervous systems.Q A disproportionate focus on the future. These folks are continually asking themselves what ifŽ questions, rather than being able to enjoy the present.Q A consistent tendency to catastrophize.Ž These folks will typically imagine the worst-case scenario in sensitive situations. The above are people who have an acute sensitivity to imagined dangers and hurts. They not only worry about the situations they perceive to be dangerous, but may also worry that they may become anxious and behave in ways that will add additional embarrassment and distress. Drs. Seif and Winston highlight that modern anxiety treatment stresses better tolerance of distressing feelings, focusing not on changing thoughts to change feel-ings (as in CBT), but to how patients can tolerate and evaluate what they think and feel. What matters most is not what they feel, but how they feel about what they feel. This concept„some-times called anxiety sensitiv-ity„is at the foreground of contemporary anxiety treat-ment. The goal is to change the relationship between the person and anxiety symp-toms, reducing distress and promoting psychologi-cal flexibility.Ž The authors explain that people can learn to acknowledge their anxiet-ies, but change the way they respond. While the above may seem somewhat confusing, there are multiple self-help books and resources that will explain all of this in great-er detail with user-friendly techniques. One such book is called The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Anxiety,Ž by Drs. John Forsyth and Georg Eifert. Drs. Seif and Winston note that most people with intense anxiety are concerned that there is something profoundly and irreversibly wrong with their psyche or their body. Understandably, it can be quite frightening to carry this belief. Therapists who specialize in anxiety disorders should be able to help their clients navigate the multiple options available and to take purposeful steps to significantly relieve their distress.

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY PALM BEACH COUNTY COMMERCE A16 WEEK OF MAY 12-18, 2016 SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________A tendency to shake things up can make men less successful than women with investments WHEN IT COMES TO INVESTING, MANY WOMEN TAKE A STAY-the-course approach that research shows can give them an advan-tage over their male counterparts. Typically, men are more likely to want to shake things up with their invest-ments, and that can be counterproduc-tive, says Mark Chandik, the author of 10 Financial Strategies for the Smart Investor.Ž Men love to tinker with things,Ž he says. Risk stimulates them. Their buddies give them tips or they read an article in The Wall Street Journal, and they want to do something.Ž Women, on the other hand, tend to make careful choices up front and then leave their money alone, he adds. Often, when I look at a husband and wife s IRAs, Ill see that after 20 years she has accrued substantially more capi-tal than he has, and he was the one doing all the active management.Ž One study by SigFig, an online portfolio manager, showed that over a 12-month period end-ing in early 2015, women investors beat men by a 12 percent average. Men were also 25 percent more likely to lose money in the market, the study reported. Many active investors brag about their latest wins, but just like gamblers, they dont talk about their losses,Ž Mr. Chandik says. If you look at the tax return of a typical active inves-tor and see how much money their investments made for them after taxes, you often find a story thats not so compelling.Ž Several factors probably lure men into thinking that constant churning of the portfolio is the smart investing option, he says. For whatev-er reason, the same factors dont entice women to a similar degree. Among those factors are:Q Misunderstanding gains, losses „ A major reason many investors „ and men in particular „ fall in love with active investing is that they have a misguided notion about gain and loss, Mr. Chandik says. For example, he says, from 2009 to 2015, many people saw double-digit annual returns and came to regard that as the norm. They expect it to continue, but such growth is not sustainable. When weak or negative years occur, they need to resist the temptation to abandon a patient approach. Q Timing the market „ Some investors become convinced that the secret to good investing is all in the timing, or buying and sell-ing a stock at just the right moment. Market timers might score big once in a while, but not repeatedly and not over time,Ž Mr. Chandik says. There are too many factors involved, too many things you cant know or control. You not only have to buy a stock at the right time „ just before or after it hits bottom „ but you also have to sell it at the right time, dumping it while its still hot.Ž Q Technology encourages bad habits „ One reason timing the market has become such a temptation is technology has made buy-ing and selling quicker and easier than ever. Today, a client can pull up an app on his iPhone while hes on the phone with me, buy something and then turn around and sell it by the end of our conversation,Ž Mr. Chandik says. The liquidity is crazy, and it leads to some very bad habits.Ž While working with a skilled adviser can go a long way toward curbing these bad habits, that in and of itself isnt a cure, he stress-es. Its essential that both the client and the adviser have clear expectations from the start,Ž he says. Many people, for example, are under the impression that its the financial advisers job to beat the mar-ket. Not so. No adviser, at least no ethical one, can promise market-beating returns.Ž Instead, he explains, the advisers role includes understanding a clients life goals, assessing risk factors and putting together a blueprint that addresses the clients needs. The adviser also acts as a support system. In times of stress or down markets, the adviser can say, Just hang tight. Be patient. Stick tothe plan.Ž Q „ Mark Chandik is president and chief investment officer of FDP Wealth Management in Orange County, Calif. He serves as chairman of the Professional Advisory Council for the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and speaks at industry meetings throughout the U.S. on topics such as advanced life insurance planning, multi-disciplinary practice and the role of the financial advisor.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 12-18, 2016 BUSINESS A19 MONEY & INVESTINGHousing market booming, but younger people aren’t buyingLast month, as my wife walked outside of our house on her way to her CrossFit class, I heard her cry out a blood-curdling scream. Thinking she had stepped on another snake, I ran outside looking around her feet, but instead she was fixated on the empty lot next to ours. Overnight, a portable potty and a builder s sign sprouted from the ground. We both knew that the days of playing soccer in an open field with our twins on our block was at an end. Our recent experience is common throughout Punta Gorda and Southwest Florida as the housing market seems to be booming once again. Contractors have more work than they can handle and home prices are rising. Yet beneath this booming market there is a weak undertow that threatens this growth. The U.S. Census Bureau just released its home ownership rates for 2015 and it fell to almost a new low of just 63.6 percent. Compare that to almost a 70 percent home ownership rate 10 years ago. So why is home ownership on the decline and will this trend continue going forward? Looking at the data behind the Census Bureau, it becomes very clear why home owner-ship is on the decline. Young people are simply not buying houses. Historically, people in their 20s and 30s made up around 40 percent of home buyers. Today, that number is 30 percent. Analysts point to high student debt, rising home prices, and lower-paying jobs as potential reasons for this shift. As a result, the rental market is very strong across the coun-try as millennials choose to rent their living space rather than buy. On the flip side, although not enough to counter the lack of home buying by young-er people, older Ameri-cans actually are owning homes at a higher rate today. In the past, people in their 50s and 60s have sold their larger homes in the suburbs and moved either into smaller homes or apartments in the city where they can be closer to cultural and enter-tainment venues and no longer pri-oritize things like multiple bedrooms or top performing school districts. But because of high-priced apartment rent-als and the recent drop in home values, many have been unable to do so. Going forward, it does not appear that younger peoples ability or desire to purchase a home will dramatically change. High bank lending standards and low saving rates among young peo-ple will continue to make home owner-ship unattainable for many. In addition, those in their 20s and 30s have witnessed how the housing bubble popped for their parents and are wary of home ownership in general. So how can an investor profit from these trends in home ownership? First, real estate investment trusts, or REITs, that focus on rental properties should perform well. Second, homebuilding companies that build homes in retirement areas should outperform. And finally, home improvement stores should continue to do well as older people stay in their homes and younger Americans maximize their rental space.

CALL DAN 561-370-5736 SOLD MAGNOLIA BAY BEHIND THE WHEELAll new 2016 Clubman – can there really be a biggest Mini?This is an oxymoron on wheels. How else can the biggest MINI ever be described? But aside from driving a con-tradiction, there is some genuine appeal behind the new Mini Cooper Clubman. The new 2016 car has swelled five inches in its wheelbase, grown a few inches wider, and added over a foot in overall length compared to its predecessor. That feels a bit funny from a company that has spent over a decade convincing us smaller is better. We could criticize them for trying to disguise this hypocrite with retro small car styling, but it is really hard to be upset at the best Mini around. The Clubman tries to retain its smaller siblings style while also trying to maxi-mize space. The result is the Dachshund of the Mini family with the center sec-tion stretched into unfamiliar propor-tions. But this wiener dog is a true four-door that doesnt have to apologize to anyone getting in the back seat. Plus, it still retains the dual vertical rear doors (a hallmark of Countryman from the 1960s) offering a wide open-ing that swallows large cargo with ease. So the new Clubman combines the best attributes of a station wagon and a small cargo van without the stigma of either. All-wheel drive is even available, making it as versatile as a crossover without looking like soccer practice transport. Inside, the longer wheelbase offers much needed rear legroom and more width to add a middle seatbelt. It makes the Clubman much more accessible to small families and young urbanites who like to drive all their friends around town. These new accommodations still arent large enough for adults to enjoy a multi-state road trip, but there are going to be fewer complaints from the rear. Up front the extra width means the driver and front passenger feel like they have a genuine level of personal space that was not in the predecessor. It still retains all the cool retro-style toggle switches, but the overall execution feels like the designers spent extra thought on adding details. This includes a tartan pattern in rarely seen areas like the coin tray and within the center console as a secret reminder this car came from the British Isles. From behind the wheel it is easy to notice the sacrifice for the retro mini-car styling. A smallish windshield was utilized to keep the new larger Clubman from looking too tall. It results in a feel-ing of tunnel vision. This problem aside, Mini has kept the driver in mind. They abandoned the center speedometer in the previous Clubman and have returned it in front of the driver. The wheel is still the same small diameter with grippy feel, and it isnt overloaded with buttons. Mini takes pride in building cars that can be fun at a moments notice. The go-kartŽ handling offers a tight steering ratio thats fun to weave through urban traffic and helps easily maneuver parallel parking. The downside is one of the most sensitive steering cars on the highway. So it requires more driver attention above 60 mph than many others. Dont mistake that last statement for unstable at high speeds. The chassis feels extraordinarily secure in all conditions. But the idea of keeping steering lively at all times means the car maintains the same composure driving at 30 mph as it does at 80 mph. Speedy getaways were not a problem in our test car. We had the SŽ model that upgrades our turbocharged motor from three cylinders to four, and our horsepower jumps from 134 to 189. It also changes the base price from $24,950 to $28,500. Those numbers seem like rea-sonable starting points, but remember that Mini also has an optional list that is as long as a cafeteria menu. So, going wild with dessert can easily create a car well above $30K. The new Mini Cooper Clubman is what many people are looking for wheth-er they know it or not. It offers extended space that better provides for family and professional obligations without giving up the sporty driving experience. If you can live with the price, this might be an oxymoron on wheels, but far from a con-flicting choice. Q myles

Elegant residence designed b y Smith and Moore Architects with 28,500 total sq.ft. of luxurious living space and spectacular ocean views. $59,000,000 | Web: 0076849 | Cristina Condon | 561.301.2211 KOVEL: ANTIQUES Authentic medieval armor very rare, expensive BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELMedieval armor was one of the prized purchases by Americans taking the Grand Tour of Europe in Victorian days. And, clev-er metalsmiths made copies of the armor that were able to fool the average tourist, even some experts. When an important American art museum remodeled its gallery filled with armor donated in the 1980s, the pieces on exhibit were sent to be cleaned, refurnished and properly conserved. Many of the pieces were found to be 19th-century copies, not original armor from the 15th century. The earliest armor was made of chainmail, a flexible covering made of linked circles. By the 16th century plate armor was made, and it stayed popular until the 18th century. Some armor was used as late as World War I. The plate armor often was heavily decorated with etched designs, but it could be pierced. Plate armor was added to the head, chest, legs and finally almost the entire body. Authentic armor is very rare and expensive today, but occasionally an auction offers a reproduction of a suit of armor. Poulin Antiques and Auctions of Fairfield, Maine, sold a 69-inch high set with overall etching in March. It was probably made in the late 1800s or early 1900s. Estimated at $1,400 to $1,800, it sold for $2,115. Q: My father-in-law had an old potbellied stove in his construction compan ys workshop. The door is embossed A Kalamazoo, Direct to You.Ž Wed like to know about how old it is. A: The Kalamazoo Stove Co. was in business in Kalamazoo, Michigan, from 1902 to 1952. The words A Kalamazoo, Direct to YouŽ were used because the manufacturer sold directly to customers. The name of the company became Kalamazoo Stove and Furnace Co. in 1937. The company made millions of stoves, mostly wood or coal-burning. Q: Im interested in selling my Beswick figurine collection. It consists of 78 pieces, mostly horses with some Siamese cats, and a few others. If you would point me in the right direction, it would be greatly appreciated. A: Beswick started making pottery in Staffordshire, England, in 1894. The pottery became John Beswick Ltd. in 1936. Figurines of animals, especially dogs and horses, were made. The company became part of Royal Doul-ton Tableware, Ltd. in 1969. Production ceased in 2002 and the John Beswick name and brand was bought by Darting-ton Crystal in 2004. Figurines dont sell as well as they used to. Many Beswick figurines are sold online. Q: I have a comic book with the title Charlie Chaplin in the MoviesŽ that is marked No. 316Ž and copyright 1917 by J. Keely by arrangement with Essanay Company, M.A. Donohue & Co., Chicago.Ž Its in poor condition and I want to sell it to a restorer. A: A first edition of this comic book was offered for sale for $875. M.A. Dono-hue was the publisher of the comic book. Essanay produced films starring Charlie Chaplin beginning in 1914. Not many copies of this comic survived in excellent condition. Your copy in poor condition wont be worth very much. You might be able to find someone interested in it at a comic book show. Restorers do restoration work and get paid for it. They dont buy things to fix. Q: While driving in the countryside during the late 1970s, I came across a perfect Norman Rockwell scene „ a little girl with her lemonade stand and two util-ity workers standing there sipping their cups of lemonade. I wrote to Rockwell and described this as a perfect Norman RockwellŽ scene. He wrote back to thank me and said public interest in his work had waned. The letter is typed on his personal stationary and signed in ink. Im downsizing and would like to know the value of this letter. A: Norman Rockwell (1894-1978) became famous for his magazine covers, illustration and advertising art. Many of his paintings were later reproduced and sold as prints. The value of an autographed letter depends on the importance of the person who signed it and the rarity of his signature. A letter that is handwritten and hand signed is worth more than a typed letter with a handwrit-ten signature. The content of the letter also affects value. Condition and authenticity are also important. Typewritten letters signed by Norman Rockwell sell for about $100, but since his paintings are going for higher and higher prices, perhaps the autographs will go up in value. The content of the letter is very interesting. Tip: Keep a mystery disasterŽ box. If you find a piece of veneer, an old screw or even a porcelain rosebud, put it into the box until you are able to make the necessary repairs.

You might have thought I had it all.Well, I didn t „ at least not until now. We all no doubt have seen vintage serving pieces „ all those wacky pickle forks and tea strainers of another era. But its not often we get to see spoon warmers. My antiques dealer friends from Jacksonville gave me this piece from a collection they had purchased. Other pieces from that collection recently were on display at the West Palm Beach Antiques Festival, and even puzzled a few seasoned dealers. They almost certainly would have sat upon the sideboards at Downton Abbey, but I do not recall seeing Carson the butler using one in the PBS series. A spoon warmer was a metal contraption filled with hot water to keep serving spoons from cooling the food as it made its way around the table. They almost always were in fanciful shapes „ shells were a popular motif „ and almost always were made in silver plate. Made in England by Elkington, this piece dates from the middle of the 19th century. Its heavy, too, surpassing the 2-pound limit on the office postal scale. Its a wonderful example of something that we no longer need, thanks to central heating and centrally located kitchens. But its a wonderfully handsome piece that evokes another era, and its so ornamental that it stands on its own as a decorative element, with or without a spoon handling poking from the opening. Its part of what makes collecting antiques so fascinating. And it serves as a lovely keepsake from two wonderful friends. Perhaps thats the best part of all.

Sunbury Press. 224 pages. Hardcover, $24.95. Trade paperback $16.95.Billed the first Nathan Monsarrat thriller, Choice of EnemiesŽ introduc-es Nathan work-ing as an academic dean at Greylock College in west-ern Massachusetts. Actually, the novel opens a couple of years earlier, with the narrator detailing the last chapter in Nathan s career as a CIA deep cover operative. We see a confused tableau in which Nathan is rescued after many months of incar-ceration and tor-ture in Africa at the hands of a Nigerian rebel group named FATA. His rescuer, who is also his CIA superior, is a man of many identi-ties. One of those identities is as Felix Sanhedrin, a cruel egocentric with expensive tastes, a warped sense of fashion and no loy-alties. Nathan had been caught up in the battle to control African oil, the goal of a consortium of American oil com-panies in league with the CIA. African national leaders, who may just as well be called African criminal gang bosses, have other ideas „ as do the rebels seeking to overthrow them. Nathan is still not done making the transition to his new bucolic life in Berkshire territory when Sanhedrin shows up with an assignment that has the additional benefit of allow-ing Nathan to settle scores and perhaps rescue a woman very dear to him. The assignment has to do with the transfer of a rare terracotta statue, but that mission soon leads to others, includ-ing an assassination that leaves Nathan rather gleeful. The lure of M.A. Richards book is its virtuoso game of high style and authentic details of espionage tradecraft. Clothes and gadgets make the man, whether we are observing Nathan Monsarrat or Felix Sanhedrin. Its hard to know what kind of audience they are dressing for, espe-cially the zany Sanhedrin, who has at some point assumed a surname that is the Hebrew word for the high court of ancient Israel. (His surname for another persona, Seleucid, also alludes to the ancient Middle East.) The author has a penchant for Jewish references, including choosing a setting in Namibia that has the same name as a town in Israel „ Rosh Pinah. Mr. Richards even finds room for a minor character called the yeshiva bocherŽ (an Orthodox Jewish schoolboy), now switching from Hebrew to Yiddish for his Jewish-toned running in-joke. Threat and suspicion are everywhere in Nathans world, and he himself is the cause of it in worlds that he enters. Thus, suspense is everywhere, too. Mr. Rich-ards is already a master at manipulat-ing his readers and raising the suspense thermometer to higher and higher levels. Nathan Monsarrats stony deliberateness is part of the process. Will all of his care-ful planning produce its intended end result? Or will things go wrong? We get to watch Nathan select his arsenal of weapons, pack the perfect array of garments, choose the most secure way of traveling to his various destinations, find vantage points from which to check and recheck his scheme and locate other vantage points, and stay constantly alert to the possibility of being followed or led into a trap. Nathans experience leads him to half-expect betrayal at any moment. The romance of the unfamiliar is another engaging element that Mr. Richards uses to advantage: places like Abuja and Port Harcourt in Nige-ria, Cape Town and other sections of South Africa, and the aforementioned town in Namibia, Rosh Pinah (the name translates to something like cornerstoneŽ). These places, par-ticularly Abuja, are filled with interest-ing sights and odd-ball characters, like the villain named Innocence and his influential, racketeering family. Are there beautiful women?

You will not necessarily like the members of the band, but its a testament to writer/direc-tor Jeremy Saulniers storytelling that you nonetheless root for them to survive. Patrick Stewart is especially chilling as the Skinhead leader. Rated R. The 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 mir-ror before Ravennas ice queen sister Freya (Ms. Blunt) gets her heartless cold hands on it. It often lacks logic and suspense, 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 (Mr. Elba) threatens to kill him. Its vis ually 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 cus-tomer service helps him move on. Davis is so numb that he doesnt feel anything, which has the ironic byproduct of the audi-ence not feeling anything either. Youll want to invest emotionally, but you wont be able to. Rated R. City of Gold ++ (Jonathan Gold, Roy Choi, David Chang) The story is unfocused in this documen-tary about Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold and his influence on Los Angeles. Not only that, but Mr. Golds per-sonality isnt interesting enough to warrant following him for 90 minutes. Rated R. My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 +++ (Nia Vardalos, John Corbett, Lainie Kazan) Toula (Ms. Vardalos) and Ian (Mr. Corbett) have trouble connecting while her parents (Ms. Kazan and Michael Constan-tine) realize their wedding was never offi-cial. Its a delight to see this crazy family back on the big screen, and just as funny as it was when the original was a box office hit in 2002. Rated PG-13. Dough +++ (Jonathan Pryce, Jerome Holder, Ian Hart) A old-school Jewish baker (Mr. Pryce) hires a Muslim teenager to give him a hand, not realizing the teenager also sells marijuana. Naturally, when some of the marijuana gets into the dough, business booms. Its a funny yet poignant serio-comedy that nicely hits its mark. Not rated: Adult situations. Q LATEST FILMS‘The Man Who Knew Infinity’ ++ Is it worth $10? NoEarly in The Man Who Knew Infinity,Ž a Cambridge professor writes a math equation on the board and then calls upon the non-note-taking student Srinivasa Ramanujan (Dev Patel) to fin-ish it. Not only does Ramanujan finish it, he also completes extra portions that werent on the board. The professor asks how he knew how to do it. I just do,Ž Ramanujan replies. Ramanujan is from India, and comes from poverty. He also has a gift that most of the Cambridge mathematics fellows dont know what to do with, so a combination of jealousy and prejudice ensue. Jeremy Irons helps as Ramanu-jans mentor/adviser, G.H. Hardy, and adds an interesting twist: With Ramanu-jan clearly a genius prodigy with little formal training, it seems like a foregone conclusion that his work should be pub-lished. Hardy raises an interesting point in that Ramanujan comes to his conclu-sions via instinct and happens to be right (just like Mozart could compose a symphony in his head, Hardy says). In reality, Ramanujan doesnt understand how or why the answer is correct. Therefore, Hardy requires Ramanujan to complete proofsŽ to show how he gets his results, which naturally Ramanujan finds to be a waste of time. And yet it makes perfect sense for Hardy to require this, because doing so leaves nothing for the academic community to question. The story covers 1914-20, so World War I occurs in the background and more or less stays there. It never has much of an effect on Ramanujan, except for inconveniencing him as the Cam-bridge campus turns into a hospital. Similar to the relevance of the war to the story, writer/director Matt Browns film doesnt quite know how to handle Ramanujan. Hes not really rebellious, but he knows hes smarter than every-one else. Hes religious and devoted to his family in India, but he never sends for them to join him. We like Ramanujan and sympathize with the discrimination he suffers and his distance from home, but the fact remains that hes kind of a boring math geek and not interesting enough to be the subject of a movie. Its also true that The Man Who Knew InfinityŽ is too much about parti-tions and prime numbers and doesnt get us invested enough in the people involved. In The Imitation Game,Ž Alan Turing was a misfit in addition to creat-ing the worlds first computer. In The Theory of Everything, Stephen Hawking became the most renowned physicist in the world while living with ALS. Ramanujan misses home, and only well into the film battles health issues. Thats it. Thats all the edge we get. Its not enough. The Man Who Knew InfinityŽ tells the story of a man who deserves to be remembered by history, but not by a 108-minute movie. Read Ramanujans Wikipedia page and youll learn all you need to know about him. And that will only take 10 minutes. Q dan

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 12-18, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B13 COURTESY PHOTO “Satchmo at the Waldorf,” directed by Terry Teachout, opens at Palm Beach Dramaworks this month. profit from being seen in different ways.Ž It marks the professional directing debut of the man whose career has encom-passed an early career playing bass as a jazz musician; authored four arts-related biographies including one on Armstrong; librettist for three operas with composer Paul Moravec; created of one of the first nationally recognized arts blogs, About Last Night, which deals with a variety of art genres; edited other books; wrote recording liner notes; and serves as the critic-at-large of Commentary. While he reviews New York shows, he also travels the country as arguably the only national critic reviewing the work of regional the-aters such as Dramaworks and GableStage. His reviews have brought national attention to other regional stages throughout the state, including Florida Repertory The-atre in Fort Myers. He reviews a show a year at the theater, listing it on his blog, as well. SatchmoŽ is a fictional „ if highly likely „ peek at the legendary trumpet-er/bandleader unwinding in his dressing room immediately after what would be his last major gig before his death in 1971. He muses to an imaginary visitor and dictates into a tape recorder memories of his life and career. Several times, he charts his complex relationship with Joe Glaser by impersonating his white Jewish man-ager. Later, he bemoans the backlash of the black community against his amiable image with the white public, a situation Armstrong illustrates by impersonating an acerbic Miles Davis, the young Turk of the trumpet. Mr. Teachout thinks the root of its popularity is clear: I ts Pops himself,Ž he said, using Armstrongs frequent nickname. Hes just a great man and a great spirit. People remember him vividly. Hes really still present for us and people just like the idea of having the opportunity to spend an evening with him.Ž Satchmo,Ž Mr. Teachouts first play, was first drafted around 2010 at Rollins Col-leges Winter Park Institute. He staged a workshop production of the first half at the same venue the following year … his only significant directing experience. The work moved through a major rewrite and several productions, notably a successful run off-Broadway in 2014 with John Doug-las Thompson. This edition will star Barry Shabaka Henley, a veteran stage, screen and television actor, who performed the role at the Court Theatre in Chicago this past winter. Mr. Teachout has no formal training as a director or playwright, although he acted in high school and college. But he had the advantage of being exposed as a critic to a huge number of object lessons. I had been seeing about 100 shows a year, writing and thinking about them in an analytical way.ƒ I learned a lot (about playwriting) by nega-tive examples. Every time you see a show, you see how a show works and how an audience respondsƒ. You will come away every show, good or bad, with a better sense of how to make it work.Ž The incipient playwright knew Most one-person plays about historical figures are nothing more than acts of collective adoration. They dont have much conflict, sometimes none at all. They dont convey the complexity of the subject. They feel spineless. Gordon Edelstein calls them taxidermy plays. They spend 90 minutes up there telling you how great they were. So having reviewed dozens of shows, I knew I didnt want to write that.Ž Instead, he said, I needed to build conflict and darkness into the show, and part of that was having one actor play more than one role, and to have the actor cross the racial line. Thats the dramatic motor that drives the play and a surprise and challenge to the audience.Ž Additionally, the play would be tossing red meat to an actor who would eat up the chance to do that,Ž specifically because there arent that many plays (with a single part) custom-tailored for a black actor. Ive seen a lot of August Wilson productions and Ive seen a lot of really wonderful middle-aged black actors who never get the chance to do something like this. So this is a kind of valentine to these guys.Ž But to learn the directors pervasive and detailed tasks, he shadowed the formative productions of SatchmoŽ and questioned the directors Rus Blackwell, Gordon Edel-stein and Charles Newell. They were my directing school.Ž He also studied three books about stage directing by Alan Ayck-bourn, William Ball and Frank Hauser. The directing ideas percolated, but they did not coalesce until Mr. Teachout was asked to direct the work by Dramaworks producing artistic director, William Hayes, and its managing director, Sue Ellen Beryl. They had met when Teachout gave strong reviews to several Dramaworks produc-tions starting with The ChairsŽ in 2009. Mr. Teachout wrote later, I figured Id never get a better chance to see what I could do with the finished play, so I said yes to Bill and Sue Ellen without much hesitation, and since then the production has rarely been far from my mind.Ž Since the invitation, Mr. Teachout has been sandwiching the preparation around his other duties reviewing shows in New York and traveling around the country. Its been an unusually busy season. Admitting last week to being underslept,Ž he detailed that he also has been seeing and reviewing a spate of Broadway shows before the Tony Awards cutoff date, premiering an anthem for chorus and orchestra called Music, Awake!Ž with Mr. Moravec and performed by John Sinclair and the Bach Festival Soci-ety of Winter Park, back down to Drama-works to begin rehearsals, one night back to New York for a review of the last show of the season, and then back to rehearsals. I know I have prepped to the hilt. ... Rehearsal time is not ridiculously long.Ž That included conversations with Mr. Henley about how this production would differ from the one Mr. Henley had done in Chicago for Mr. Newell. In the Chicago casting, Mr. Henleys hiring was sealed when the team saw a film clip of him as an old jazz musician dealing with Tom Cruise in the film Collateral.Ž When he auditioned, He blew just every-one away,Ž Mr. Teachout recalled. So with the Dramaworks project in mind, I was involved in the rehearsal pro-cess out there (in Chicago). Two weeks in, I said to him, Would you do it again, this time for me, and he didnt just want to do it once. So we made the deal.Ž Mr. Henley spent six months in Miami in 2005 shooting the film of Miami Vice,Ž while Hurricane Katrina ravaged the hometown he shared with Armstrong. This return to Florida gives him a completely different approach to the piece because the Chicago production, which closed Feb. 12, was almost surreal, set in a kind of nameless purgatory. This produc-tion is designed to be naturalistic. Mr. Henley has worked with a playwright in the rehearsal hall before; in 1998, he worked in overhauled rewritten version of JitneyŽ with August Wilson present through the creation, through a New York production and in London. In that case, in some ways at times the presence of the playwright outweighed the presence of the director.Ž But he is looking forward to working with a playwright who is also the director. In some cases, a director who has written his own work doesnt often have the dis-tance toŽ see the work objectively. Apparently, Mr. Teachout is not like that.Hes a flexible enough human beingƒ. If he hears the words coming out and theyre not the way he heard them (when writing it) but its working, hes 100 percent behind it,Ž Mr. Henley said. While it may seem strange that he is juggling theater criticism and theater cre-ation, Mr. Teachout revels in it: The whole process in making theater is especially exciting to me. I spent the first part of my life writing, sitting in a room by myself, but this is ƒ boy, I cant get enough of the joy of collaboration.Ž Mr. Teachout isnt leaving his day job and does not expect it will interfere with his other roles. He scrupulously will avoid reviewing for a few years any company that produces his work or hires him to direct. But if this goes well, I hope Ill get other chances to direct. Maybe Im kidding myself, but I have a good feeling.Ž Q „ Bill Hirschman is editor of Florida Theater On Stage.

Then I thought, This must be a prank call,Ž chuckled the longtime front-man for a Michigan-based band called Steppin in it.Ž I am not a huge fan of reality television,Ž Mr. Davis confessed. But after he, his wife, and 9-year-old daughter watched a few episodes to see what The VoiceŽ was all about, Mr. Davis was impressed. It was the shows upbeat tone that convinced him to participate. He ultimately made it to the finals. They dont get their ratings by embarrassing the contestants,Ž Mr. Davis said. It was a really positive experience.Ž Still, measuring musical greatness through competition is a way of looking at music that still doesnt sit comfortably. For me, music should be collaborative and not competitive,Ž he said. The idea that you are in competition with other people is a weird, stressful thing and that in itself was stressful for all of us.Ž In contrast, the music scene in Michigan and roots music in general is very support-ive, with no one artist focused on climbing the ladder themselves, he said. I was raised in a setting where there is not much separation between performer and audience so I got a chance growing up to meet all my heroes: Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie, John Hartford and Greg Brown,Ž Mr. Davis said. I got to talk to them face-to-face and they spent time with a 13-year-old kid to teach me a little something. There is a real push to pass the music down to the next generation or otherwise it dies,Ž Mr. Davis said. One of Mr. Davis best experiences during The VoiceŽ competition occurred when he was paired with a voice coach, who got him to concentrate on using his voice as an instrument. Mr. Davis said he had always considered himself as a utilityŽ singer whose main purpose was just to get the words out. His real focus was songwriting. (This coach) taught me how to sing in a much better way and to increase my range and that has changed many things about me,Ž Mr. Davis said. It has changed the way I write songs. I have a wider range for my performances and that in itself was worth the whole thing.Ž His own music is an earthy, folksy genre that has evolved from the close connection between audience and performer. Its what he will look forward to most when he per-forms in West Palm Beach. I look at every night as a new show, a new group of people,Ž Mr. Davis said. Its unique, the feeling of the crowd is different (each time). I love to connect with people.Ž Mr. Davis recently released two new singles, Let Me In,Ž and Always Going to Be Here,Ž available on iTunes and also on seven-inch vinyl. He is also working on a full-length album to be released sometime in winter. I love writing songs,Ž Mr. Davis said. There is no other reason to do it.Ž Q WATERFRONTFrom page 1 >> WHAT: Sunday on the Waterfront, with singer Joshua Davis, contestant from the “The Voice,” Season 8 >> WHEN: 4 p.m. Sunday, May 15 >> WHERE: Meyer Amphitheatre, 105 Evernia St., downtown West Palm Beach. >> PARKING: Banyan Street Garage, at Banyan Boulevard and Olive Avenue; City Hall surface parking lot, east of City Hall at Olive Avenue and Banyan Boulevard; Evernia Street Garage, at Evernia Street and Olive Avenue.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 12-18, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19The Dish: Crab Cake Sandwich The Place: Riggins Crabhouse, 607 Ridge Road, Lantana; 586-3000 or The Price: $15.95 The Details: I have a confession to make: I love crab. Nothing is finer than the tender, sweet lumps of goodness from the sea. But I can t eat anything that I have to look in the eye, so I tend to avoid the whole, blue crabs that draw folks to Rig-gins for an evening of happy cracking. So, back to this crab cake. It was packed with large, tender lumps of crab and a minimum of filler, and it was served on a perfectly toasted roll „ that doesnt happen very often these days. A friend ordered a fried seafood plate, which was heaped with catfish, clam strips and shrimp. All was well prepared, if not exceptional. Q „ Scott Simmons FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Andrew Schor said he first fell in love with cooking at age 4, watching Julia Child on television. She was super entertaining and did it all with food,Ž he said. It captivated me. It was more appealing to me than the cartoons all the other kids were watch-ing.Ž It didnt hurt that Chef Schors mother and father enjoyed cooking as well. Also Im Cuban and my grandmother has been very dear to me,Ž he said. I watched her spend a lot of her time in her kitchen cooking Spanish food, which has become my passion outside of work. I just found myself in the kitchen sur-rounded by all of this great food.Ž Chef Schor added he cooked his first professional meal at a pizza restaurant when he was 12. Im not going to tell you the name of that restaurant,Ž he laughed. But I can tell you I wanted to cook there at the age of 8. I would spend hours there, just watching how they made pizza. Add to that the cooking shows I watched on TV and I was hooked on cooking. Eventually they let me do some of the prep work and it all took off from there.Ž His next stop was culinary college Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island, but Chef Schor knew he needed more than cooking skills to be successful in the restaurant business. So I went to Florida International University in Miami and got a degree in business and hospitality,Ž he said. I was also a teaching assistant and taught a culinary class there. As I was finish-ing up school, the Hillstone Restaurant Group invited me to a job fair. I got a job with them immediately. Ive been with them 15 years now, 13 of which have been spent at the Palm Beach Grill, which is one of their many restaurants.Ž As executive chef of the Palm Beach Grill, Chef Schor oversees 30 tables and seating capacity of 165 diners. I look as local as possible for all of my entrees,Ž he said. Whatever is as fresh as possible and whatever is in season at the time.Ž A popular appetizer is Walts Heirloom Tomatoes ($19), grown in Delray Beach, with Danish blue cheese, basil and Champagne vinaigrette, he said. As for entrees, the house favorite is the True Dover Sole (market price, served Thursday-Sunday only), which is flown in from Holland and comes pan-fried and served with tomatoes and coleslaw. Also our Creole Barbeque Shrimp ($34) served with basmati rice is a real crowd pleaser,Ž Chef Schor said. Its advisable to get the desserts, by the way. Most recommended is the Key lime pie ($10) with pecan and graham cracker crust „ a Florida staple that the Palm Beach Grill makes all its own. At home, Chef Schor likes to get back to his Cuban roots. I like arroz con pollo, which is a rice and chicken dish,Ž he said. Its made with tomato sauce, garlic, onions, beer and wine, all cooked together.Ž But for Palm Beach Grills menu, Chef Schor said he wants to keep things sim-ple. Were an American restaurant,Ž he said. We bring in the best meat and the best seafood and make it. Perfectly and consistently. We like reinventing what we have and making it that much better.Ž Andrew SchorAge: 35 Original Hometown: Miami Restaurant: Palm Beach Grill, 340 Royal Poinciana Way, Palm Beach; 835-1077; Mission: To make sure that everyone that comes into our restaurant leaves happy and content.Ž Cuisine: American Training: Johnson and Wales University Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen?

TRAVEL FLORIDA WEEKLY LUXE LIVING 3 Romantic costumes draw history, film buffs to Biltmore BY KELLY MERRITTkmerritt@” oridaweekly.comAnyone who has watched films inspired by Jane Austen stories remembers Emma Thompson s Eleanor Dashwood and Hugh Grants Edward Farrars. Such romances resonate so vividly with viewers that even the clothes characters wore when they finally won their hearts desires are memo-rable. It took more than 200 hours just to dress the mannequins at the Biltmore Estate for the destinations Fashionable Romance: Wedding Gowns in FilmŽ exhibit. Among the 40 gowns and costumes from films set in the years 1645 to 1935. Sense and Sensibility,Ž EmmaŽ and Pride and Preju-diceŽ are included.

Along with the 6-foot-tall wedding cake in the entry hall there are elaborate flower arrangements created by Biltmores floral team to coordi-nate with each wedding dress. There are five costumes from The Duchess,Ž with clothing worn by Keira Knightly and Ralph Fiennes.

FLORIDA WEEKLY MAY 2016 LUXE LIVING 5DESIGN MAKEOVER BY KELLY MERRITTkmerritt@” oridaweekly.comWhen Melody Smith began her consultation with a client who wanted to trans-form her Jupiter Beach condo into more of a beach getaway, she had a rare opportu-nity to focus on making the lay-out match dcor already in place. Carpentry and tilework as well knocking down an entryway were part of the makeover. The homeowner had terrific furniture pieces that she needed pulled together into a cohesive design so we worked together on a plan to realize her vision,Ž said Ms. Smith, who owns Melody Smith Interiors. To complete that vision involved repainting, adding area rugs, window treatments, wall cov-erings, lighting and accessories.Ž Ms. Smith rearrang ed her clients existing furniture to make the room more inviting and better scaled for place-ment. The owner and I were able to communicate very easily with one another and because there is a neutral color palette on the main furniture pieces, we brought in color through the accesso-ries,Ž she said. The bonus? If you get tired of a pillow or a blanket you can always change it and get a whole new look,Ž she said. The newer construction made things easier to manage, so Ms. Smith had fewer surprises than would usually happen in older construction. But the project wasnt without hiccups. The only challenge, and it was easy to fix, was to remove the decorative door-way from the entry into the kitchen, and once we removed the unnecessary deco-rative doorway, the sink and breakfast bar area made sense,Ž she said. To give it further purpose, interest and to balance the adjacent wall that holds a plumbing riser, we added a built-in plate rack.Ž Its multipurpose. Right now, it holds decorative plates, but it could just as easily be a bookshelf or a place to display pictures or other prized possessions,Ž Ms. Smith said. The design plan had to meet with the homeowners desires to fill in the miss-ing gaps of this condo, a vacation home purchased the previous year. The owner wanted it to reflect the beachside location, relaxed and casu-al and very livable and that is exact-ly what we created,Ž said Ms. Smith. My finish carpenter, Robert Robinson, knocked it out of the park with the walls and ceiling insets, while Adam Beatty, who does the most amazing glass tile installations, replaced the kitchen back-splash and it gave the room a whole new life and energy.Ž Ms. Smith had an original plan to paint the walls, until she saw how beautifully Mr. Robinsons work turned out. All it required was a protective clear coat. The kitchen where Mr. Beatty replaced the backsplash had been covered with dull metal tile. It was such an easy way to bring so much more movement and light into the room and create a contrast from the blue pearl granite and the stained wood cabinets,Ž she said. Theres a quiet, calming feel that you have upon enter-ing, as if you can check all stress at the door, you have arrived at the beach and its time to let go of the hustle-bustle.Ž Q Melody Smith Melody Smith Interiors 800 Forest Hill Blvd. West Palm Beach 561-309-5440; Houzz.comTOM TRACY/FLORIDA WEEKLY Melody Smith creates unique retreat around existing decorBeach getaway SMITH

8 LUXE LIVING MAY 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLYCOVER STORY “The Florida style is catching on all over the world. People want an easier way of living.” — Mimi McMakin, Kemble Interiors BY KELLY MERRITTkmerritt@” I n Palm Beach, the name Kemble is synon-ymous with design. Mimi McMakin, Cel-erie and Phoebe Kemble have a long and storied history in South Florida, but each woman is a trailblazer in her own right. And all three have different variations on what defines casual elegance, the lifestyle Florid-ians have adopted for generations. I ts the only way to live,Ž Ms. McMakin says. Elegant, over-the-top fussy houses are becoming non-existent because people live with their families, doggies, houseguests, and that is why one of the first things we ask clients is, How do you like to live in your house?Ž Ms. McMakin says the question is as simple as asking a husband if he would like to put a coat and tie or wear a comfortable shirt to din-ner. Homes are different in Florida than they are in New York or England, where the two Kemble daughters spend copious amounts of time when they arent in balmy Palm Beach. But Ms. McMakin says there are as many simi-larities as there are distinctions. People want an easy way of living, not necessarily heavy drapes or carpet, and they want easy to care for, happy, friendly houses, which is why the Florida style is catching on all over the world,Ž she says. That includes paint and fabrics that can take a lot of beating from use, and color, which plays a huge part in our lives and makes us feel good.Ž Ms. McMakin harkens to informal combinations of antique rattan or wicker pieces, which work well with a pretty wooden piece of furni-ture in the same room to make the look varied and more interesting. Home to me should be as exciting as arriving at your vacation destination and there is no reason why we cant be on vacation in our own houses all of the time,Ž she says. Think about what makes you happy and recreate that in your own house, including lighting „ people need to start thinking about romance in lighting rather than vacuuming. Places are so overlit.Ž For Ms. McMakin, what makes a room inviting is the immediate recognition of comfort, not having everything placed perfectly, having interesting things to look at. Some of her sug-gestions include having a deck of cards on a coffee table or something propped up against a bookcase. Her own home, which has been the subject of books and numerous articles, is an example of how to achieve this technique. It looks comforting, not overdone, but every space is a study in life and pursuits. To make your guests comfortable, give them something to talk about or admire „ maybe you found a quirky table „ add the fun of something than something that just fills the spot,Ž says Ms. McMakin. It is easy to assume a designer at Ms. McMakins level would most relish seeing the finished product. But its the journey that captivates her. I call it the hunt. Nothing makes me happier BY KEL LY Y M ER RI TT T k merritt @” ” o o ri ri da da we ek ly .c o m an an d d ma a ke e s us f f ee l l go d od .Ž M s M c Ma ki n ha rk e n s t o in f o r ma l co m b in n aai ti ons f of a nt nt iq iq ue ue r r at at ta ta n n or or w w ic ic k ke r i pi eceswhich B k Palm Beach’s First Family of Living Well LEFT: BRANTLEY PHOTOGRAPHY.

FLORIDA WEEKLY MAY 2016 LUXE LIVING 9COVER STORYthan a client who says, Mimi, find that special, out-of-the-way piece for me. We spend more time trying to please them, love going to house sales and auctions,Ž she says. Ms. McMakin takes delight in that quest. For me the hunt is just the ultimate treat and that is wh y Im in this business,Ž she says. While daughters Phoebe and Celerie have branched out to London and New York, respectively, sentimentality ground the family as a whole in Palm Beach. The family homestead is an unusual house, the old Bethesda-by-the-Sea church, which looks like something out of a fai-rytale. The home is in keeping with the graceful elegance for which Ms. McMa-kin is known: When something is this grand, preserve it and love living in it. How could I ever replicate that anywhere else? My daughter Celerie says, Mommy, we all feel when our umbilical cords were cut another one was attached to our home, and there is a wonderful spirit of this beautiful Gothic, shingled building by the sea,Ž she says. Phoebe Kemble, director and head chef of Kemble Kitchens, is cut from the same creative cloth as her mom, but she chose the culinary route. She went from working in network entertainment and throwing last-minute gatherings to being in the culinary business. Curating a dinner party on the weekends gradually turned into a consistent hobby that turned into a career change I didnt expect,Ž says Phoebe Kemble, who loves freestyling in the kitchen. I teach clients and friends who ask about cook-ing not to be afraid of making a mistake and if you like the taste of whatever you have made, youve won.Ž She is a fan of making a dish your own „ not unlike her mothers philosophy of creating a home that is meaningful to the individuals who live there. The way my mom and sister walk into a room and design it, making every room warm and inviting „ thats the effect I like to have at a dinner party,Ž Phoebe Kemble says. It should be as personable and tasty and colorful as you like.Ž Phoebe Kemble says she has cooked in beautiful kitchens the homeowners have never used and family oriented, well-loved kitchens that have been overly used where she has had to knock on the side of the stove to keep the gas running. She shares in the family tradition that the most important thing is using what you love to decorate. Add your personal flair to it. For example, I love saving my old jars, and flowers that come out of crazy old glass-es, so I frequent a wonderful old flea market that happens twice a week,Ž says Phoebe Kemble, who is crazy for little accents that make a big impact, like hav-ing one or two flowers sticking out of an old apothecary jar. There are small and large green, white, light blue, dark green jars all scattered around the house.Ž When Phoebe Kemble comes home to Florida, she finds big seashells and uses them to place bars of soap, or change. In the familys home in the Adirondacks, she collects pieces of wood that have been shaved or thrown away. Little things remind you of home and memory, like taking ferns or fans and wrapping them around candles to enliven a kitchen,Ž says Phoebe Kemble, who counsels homeowners not to use scented candles because they mask the aromas of the food. You can etch names in sea grape leaves to make amazing place cards.Ž Perhaps her best trick for the perfect kitchen is to use what the guests will eat to establish the atmosphere. This is dcor in itself „ artfully arrange a platter of cheeses. Place your bottles of wine around the space. Best of all, cook shallots or onions even if you dont plan to use them, because when guests have something to smell, that brings them to the moment,Ž she says. Phoebe Kembles sister Celerie has turned her design skills into a global brand. Her Celerie Kemble furnishings are a hit with Floridians all over the state. Her definition of informal refinement revolves around an awareness that in the Sunshine State, certain things are essen-tial „ wear and tear, lots of sophisticated entertaining and comfort. I design with a Florida sensibility in that my pieces are comfortable but with character, so in furnishings to me casual elegance means a balance of the luxurious and the practical,Ž says Celerie Kemble, whose clients have homes in Florida, New York and elsewhere. The challenge for so many homeowners with more than once residence is how to make more than one house feel like home. Celerie Kemble has a pre-scription for that. The best way to make a second home feel like home is to incorporate furniture that is vintage or antique or from other times in your life,Ž she says. It is in the layering of time periods, memories, or even patinas that make a home feel real. Also, collections and art that has been carefully chosen can make a big differ-ence.Ž Like her mother, Celerie Kemble cannot stress the importance of lighting in the character of the room. She takes it a step further and suggests staggering it for effectiveness along with a few other tips that give a room personality. Good lighting, light coming from different heights and plants or flowers are important along with a floor plan set for conversation and flow,Ž she says.

And each of those places has many styles of architecture. For Ms. Bondar, going to high school in France enhanced her appreciation for beautiful buildings. She has made Jupiter her home base for the past 13 years. As an interior designer and residential general contractor, specializing in residential interior design and renova-tion, Ms. Bondar wears many hats. She says clients relish having all the facets of their home plan under one design roof. We asked the Duke University graduate about her influences on design and architecture, her enterprising firm and what she loves most about the design-build life in South Florida. You can build anything „ but out of all disciplines, what is your favor-ite thing to do? Our firm is a design-build general contractor, so we do build new houses, but our forte, and what I love most, is renovations because they are the most challenging. Tell us about your company family. We have architecture and interior design in-house, all in one firm, which means we handle the whole process from soup to nuts, bringing the whole project to fruition. We have really amaz-ing crews who are full-time employees, people I have worked with for more than a decade right under the same roof, and everyone is like a member of the family. We do all of the kitchen and bath space CAD in-house. That is also a really great thing to have all of those elements come together to make the project special. What are a few of your favorite current home design trends? Open contemporary design is huge.

FLORIDA WEEKLY MAY 2016 LUXE LIVING 11 It is the return of the dining room, but open, in a more family-friendly way. For years it was just this room in the house that no one really ever used but if the kitchen is the heart of the home, the din-ing room is the soul. The family dining room is still elegant, bu t its something you use. If you had to pick a favorite thing to install in a house, what would that be? I love home theaters. They used to be overdone and people didnt use them, but for families with kids it has become a big part of family life, with movies and games, it is a family-friendly place that is a sanctuary. There is an emphasis on installing places where people can gath-er. The other thing to remember is to ask yourself: What do you need? What do you love?Ž Busy hectic families with kids and stuff everywhere, getting your house right will make it serve you rather than you serving it and pay you divi-dends. Its like the saying, Everything in its place and a place for everything.Ž Only keep what you need. What trends are you glad to see go away? That stadium seating effect, two-level island. It is a barrier to togetherness, not part of it in where youre watching rather than participating. I love a higher island thats stand-up height so you dont have to break your back washing dishes that allows for people to gather around in the kitchen. I also love having a bar area because it takes some of the pressure off the kitchen. Kitchens have a way of getting congested when youre entertaining and a functional bar allevi-ates some of that. What advice can you share for a homeowner embarking on renova-tion? If you have a vision or gut feeling about your place „ dont let others shake you or interfere with that. You know what you want and what is pos-sible „ you might need someone like us to help you get there, but a lot of the time, it takes guts to get the glory in a challenging home renovation. What makes working in and around the Jupiter-Palm Beach area special to you? Some people work their whole lives to retire and get to a place like this. Others ask themselves, Why wait?Ž and they come here earlier in life. The scope of activities and amenities allow us to live that true island lifestyle, while still having amazing medical facilities, world-class restaurants and people who embrace design and architecture who have the money to do it, which is nice. But actually, one of the coolest things is it doesnt matter if its a 1,200-square-foot condo or 10,000-square-foot man-sion. Everyone is seeking their slice of paradise, and we get to help them achieve it.
