These vol-unteers will help generate a statewide map of the bridges that are currently occupied by bats. The Florida Department of Transportations bridge maintenance office lists 12,094 bridges throughout the state of Florida. In 2003, the Flor-ida Fish and Wildlife Commission conducted a random survey of 479 bridges and documented active bat colonies in 151 of them. The cur-rent survey directed by the Master Naturalist Program aims to survey all 12,094 bridges. Government agencies like the FWC are often strapped for resources, both in manpower and time. Volunteer-staffed citizen scientist projects like the bat survey help fill in the gaps, providing valuable data on Florida wildlife. Similar citizen scientist projects have been used to collect data on other animals, including scrub jays and reef fish. In 2014, Dr. Kirsten Bohn, a bat specialist and professor at Florida International University at the time, organized the Miami Bat Squad, a group of citizen scientist volunteers who documented roosting sites for the endangered bonneted bat around the Miami area. These surveys have helped document populations over time and can reveal declining numbers. Theyve also contributed to conservation efforts and raised public awareness about wildlife in Florida.

We heal for Terry. Terry T ipple … Str oke Survivor 2015Ali R. Malek, MDMedical Director, SMMC Comprehensive Stroke Center8 Years leslie COMMENTARYDown for the final countIt was a rare moment, a sweep of fresh air across the nation despite the death that stirred it. We remembered for a moment the greatness of what it means to be an American. It was the parting gift of a man whose courage and achievements stopped the nations clock. The magnitude of his life was worthy of celebration. It was a life that could have been achieved and lived only in America. His story is the story of the American Dream fulfilled. Who better to tell it than the man himself? But it was, after all, a funeral. It doesnt usu-ally happen that way. Muhammad Ali thought differently. He saw the occasion of his death as an opportunity to share with the world the vision and values that were fundamen-tal to his own success. He invited the people he touched and who touched him to be his voice. He took 10 years to plan his final goodbye, a task most of us would choose to devote as little time to as possible. It was not an act of hubris. It was a commitment of love. Those close to the man say he never forged a singular identity. His life was a grand tapestry woven from many different threads. His memorial ser-vice underscored this pattern of diver-sity. Like all lives, his was complicated, filled with events and intersections that changed what might have been. Alis widow said he wanted the teachable moments he earned in life to be paid forward. He knew his fame ensured that his death would attract global attention. He was right, of course. The service was broadcast by the national networks and live streamed on social media. And what an event it was.Wrote Jim Dwyer of The New York Times, Ali was eulogized in a grand sports arena by, among others, a priest and an imam, a rabbi and a monk, a for-mer United States president and a famous comedian. Protgs and daughters and his wife remembered him. As they spoke, all stood beneath the flags of the United States and the Olympic Games, symbols of a man who saw himself as a citizen of America and of the world.Ž It was a service befitting the man who inspired it. It included a 20-mile journey of his coffin afterward on streets strewn with roses through his hometown of Louisville, Ky. Tens of thousands of peo-ple gathered along the route to say their farewell to the 74-year-old icon. As I watched the slow procession make its way through the city, Walt Whitmans poem, A Song of Myself,Ž came to mind. A stanza goes: I cel-ebrate myself. And what I assume you shall assume. For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.Ž Ali could have written the verse himself. He believed we are one in Gods eyes and bound together by our shared human-ity. He refused to be anything less than the man he was. That didnt come easily. He was black, he was proud, he was Mus-lim, he was a conscientious objector, and he was against the Vietnam War. This was in the 60s. He was then an up-and-coming boxer on his way to becoming a world-class athlete. It was a tumultuous time. The Vietnam War was boiling over, the foundations of state-sanctioned segregation were crumbling, and the national struggle for civil rights was nearing its zenith. His moral courage cost him dearly. He was found guilty of draft evasion, stripped of his heavyweight titles and barred from boxing for several years. His conviction was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1971. He retired in 1981, and turned his energy to religious and charitable purposes. He was diagnosed shortly thereafter with Parkinsons disease, a disease associated with his boxing career. In 1996, he pro-vided one of the most moving moments in Olympic history when he was given the honor of lighting the Olympic caul-dron in the opening ceremony of the centennial Olympic Games. At the memorial service, the Rev. Kevin Cosby of St. Stephen Church in Louisville said of Ali, He dared to love black people at a time when black people had a problem loving themselves. He dared to affirm the beauty of blackness, he dared to affirm the power and the capacity of African-Americans. He dared to love Americas most unloved race.Ž Ali was on the right side of history. He will be remembered as a great Amer-ican. Voices of Christians, Jews, Bud-dhists and Native Americans all gave witness to the greatness of a nation that produces such a man and builds such a community. Alis farewell produced a rare moment of hope and national unity. It contradicted with love all who would splinter the nation apart with hate. It was a final victory worthy of a champion.

OPINIONHigh values and class: the legacy of Pat SummittTheres a lot of talk about generations „ the greatest this, the boomers that, the Xers some other, the millennials now. Ive always been suspicious of the distinctions. At the same time, the men and women in each generation face different societal or economic challenges than those in other generations. But we all inherit the same ageless struggle to be human here in the United States „ to find good work, to know and celebrate l ove, to be healthy, and to earn respect and equal treatment from others. In the 1950s and 60s, when University of Tennessee Womens Basketball Coach Pat Summitt and I were young, the nations notions of equality were more theoretical. So when Coach Summitt died last week at the age of 64 from Alzheimers „ a dis-ease Id never associated with baby boom-ers before „ I realized that she defies the mere stereotypes of her generation. Using the sport of amateur basketball as a springboard, she defined what is most luminous and worthy in the Ameri-can character, in spite of the restrictions women in her generation faced, especially when they were young. I didnt just come up with this notion out of a clear blue sky. Instead, I read a sin-gle public comment from Florida Weekly editor Betty Wells „ normally reticent, careful with praise „ a tough-minded, widely experienced writer and editor who never speaks unless she has something worthy to say. On June 26, two days before Coach Summitt died, she responded to a Face-book announcement from the Pat Sum-mitt Foundation that Coach Summitts condition was grave. Betty shared the post and added four short but poignant sentences: She has always been an inspiration to me. A self-less teacher and a willing mentor to other women both in sports and outside sports. She persevered and won with grace, never losing sight of her values. Peace to you, Coach.Ž Coach Summit had established the Foundation in the fight against Alzheim-ers after she was diagnosed in 2011 and stepped down as the Volunteers head coach in 2012. Shed led the womens teams for 38 years, graduating every player she coached, winning more than 84 percent of her games and concluding her career with 1,098 victories „ the highest number in NCAA history. Her teams won eight NCAA Division I titles. But thats not what appealed most to me, or perhaps to Betty „ nor the fact that she won a silver medal captaining the womens basketball team in the 1976 Olympics and a gold medal coaching it in the 1984 Olympics, or that she wrote three books, or that she was pure Tennessee from start to scratch. What I admire about her was her character, which would have served in any generation, under any conditions. Born in Clarksville on June 14, 1952, the year Dwight Eisenhower won the White House, she moved with her parents and four siblings in high school to Henrietta, so she could play basketball. Clarksville had no team. Then she went on to the Uni-versity of Tennessee at Martin, becoming an All-American. That happened before the 1972 passage of a federal law called Title IX, which prohibits discrimination based on sex in any government-funded program. Although Pat Summitts three older broth-ers all earned college scholarships for their sports prowess, she did not. With an undergraduate degree in hand, Summitt took up graduate studies at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Almost immediately the head coach of the Lady Volunteers resigned, and Coach Summitt accepted the position. At the time she was 22 years old. The pay was $250 a week, or $12,000 a year. By contrast, at UCLA John Wooden was mak-ing $40,500 to coach the men. And merely coaching was the least of it. Unlike John Wooden, she drove the team van to games. She slept on the gym floor of an opposing team with her players because they had no money for motels. She washed and dried their clothes. We played because we loved the game. We didnt think anything about it,Ž she told Time magazine in 2009. But to those endeavors she added the qualities of a temperament I revere: Pat Summitt treated each player with equal caring, not just the great ones. She tried as hard as she could, all the time, for all of them. And she did well by doing good, a fact that transcends basketball „ and a virtue that transcends the generations. Two days after she died, I asked Betty in a phone conversation why she was so moved by Coach Summitt. She started coaching about the same time I started work as a rookie reporter,Ž Betty told me. I was a good athlete in high school, and it was frustrating for women my age, or who didnt make the Title IX cut, to think we didnt have the opportunity to go to college and play sports „ to get a full ride. I dont begrudge the women who came after, but I was frustrated.Ž That was one thing, Betty said. But there was more. Ive always been a big basketball fan „ I graduated from Wichita State University (the Shockers, who revere the sport). I loved the way she coached. Classy. Tough. Serious. You hardly ever saw her smile during the course of a game, but she got the job done. She was an inspiring person for all women, but not just women „ for every-one. Every one of her players graduated. Thats a remarkable legacy. For anybody who tries to succeed, whether in business or journalism or teaching or coaching, what a model she was.Ž And she was a model to the end, Betty said. She was diagnosed five years ago, and she carried on that last season with such grace and dignity. She didnt let the disease cripple her. It was pretty much always on her terms. And those terms were, high values and class.Ž Q A4 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY PublisherBarbara Shaferbshafer@floridaweekly.comEditor Scott Reporters & ContributorsLeslie Lilly Roger Williams Evan Williams Janis Fontaine Sallie James Mary Thurwachter Katie Deits Amy Woods Steven J.

That is the global elites collective reaction to Britains vote to exit the European Union, which is being por-trayed as the work of ill-informed xeno-phobes who never should have been entrusted with a decision of such world-historical importance. Judging by their dismissive tone, critics of Brexit believe that the EUs lack of basic democratic accountability is one of its institutional advantages „ the bet-ter to insulate consequential decisions from backward and shortsighted voters. Britain gave us the Magna Carta and such foundational thinkers on the road to democratic rule as John Locke and John Milton. It resisted centralizing mon-archs in the turbulence of the 17th cen-tury, and defeated continental threats to its sovereignty emanating from Spain (King Philip II), France (Napoleon) and Germany (Hitler). Should it be shocking that it said no thanksŽ to continuing to subsume itself in a budding European superstate? Maintaining British sovereignty, broadly construed, was the overwhelm-ing rationale for Brexit. According to a survey by Lord Ashcroft Polls, 49 percent of leave voters said the biggest reason for exiting the EU was that deci-sions about the U.K. should be taken in the UKŽ Another 33 percent said it was the best way to regain power over the UKs borders, and 13 percent said they worried the UK couldnt control how the EU expanded its membership or its powers.Ž All the critics of Brexit see in the vote, though, is hostility to immigrants. There is no doubt that immigration played a large role. But a country controlling its own borders is a necessary element of sovereignty. The foreign-born popula-tion of Britain has doubled in the past 20 years, with the government powerless to stop much of the influx. It, self-evi-dently, should be the right of the British people to decide whether they want less or more immigration. A constant refrain of Brexit critics is that leaving the EU was much too com-plex and important an issue to put to a referendum. But at bottom the question was simple: Shall parliament remain the supreme lawmaking body in Britain or not? This is a foundational decision that it makes sense to put directly before the voters. The British people voted to reject the EU superstructure that had been hoisted on top of their traditional politi-cal institutions. The vote roiled the markets, and another theme of Brexit critics is that leave voters now regret their temper tantrum. But a poll for the Sunday Mirror newspaper found that 92 percent of leave voters were happy with the out-come of the referendum. There may indeed be an economic cost to Brexit, but politics isnt reduc-ible to a stock index „ something that Americans, having once made their own tumultuous exit from an offshore power, should reflexively understand. You are not to inquire how your trade may be increased, nor how you are to become a great and powerful people, but how your liberties can be secured,Ž Patrick Henry declared during a 1788 debate over ratifying the Constitution, for lib-erty ought to be the direct end of your Government.Ž Q „ Rich Lowry is the editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly

In Bonita Springs, CGT Kayaks offers an Imperial River Moonlight Bat Paddle. Paddlers take the river east of downtown to view a colony of more than 1,000 Brazilian free tailed bats that live under the Mathe-son Avenue bridge. What happens is at sunset they all come streaming outŽ to feed on insects, said CGT owner and tour guide John Paeno. On some nights they fill the sky haphazardly,Ž he said, or create almost like a funnel of bats.Ž The Matheson bridge has been home to bats for decades as far as Mr. Paeno knows. CGTs next Bat Paddle is scheduled for July 16. I think the original fear of bats is kind of waning, at least in our area, maybe all over the country, because they know a majority of them eat mosquitos,Ž said Mike Kirby, senior environmental specialist with the city of Bonita Springs. Bats are welcome in part as insect control in many residential backyards where people put up bat houses to attract them, as well as at Bonita Nature Place. Most of the bat species we have in Florida are insectivorous,Ž says Pete Corradino, a wildlife biologist for the Everglades Day Safari who will be surveying the bridges in Hendry County. They feed on flying insects that can be nuisances, including mosquitoes.Ž Studies have documented a single bat eating up to 3,000 insects in one night. Their diet not only includes community pests like mosquitoes but also extends to agricultural pests such as beetles and stink bugs. A 2011 article in Science magazine estimated that bats save U.S. farmers $3 billion annually. Bats also serve as pollinators for night flowers, and they help disperse seeds and fertilize plants. But like many species across the state, theyre being threatened by habitat loss. We take down the forests where they roost,Ž Mr. Corradino says, and theyre losing the habitats they require.Ž While the bat survey was conceived as an FMNP endeavor, Erik Neugaard „ a lead instructor with the FMNP who has been conducting wildlife surveys for more than 20 years and is coordinating the study „ says he is happy to include anyone who is enthusiastic about the studys goals. Volunteers will be assigned an area, either an entire county or part of a county depending on how many bridges are listed for that location. People can go out on their own, although for safety reasons its encouraged to bring a partner. Volunteers establish the presence of bats under bridges using three methods: sight, sound and smell. First they will look for evidence of bats, both high and low. Theyll check whether they can see bats hang-ing from the bridge near the expansion joints, and then theyll search for piles of guano and stains created by bat urine on the ground. Next, volunteers will listen for bats. The most common bat in Florida is the Mexican or Brazilian free-tailed bat, and this particular bat chirps in a range that is audible to the human ear. Finally, volun-teers will need to confirm the presence of bats by smell. Bats release a pheromone in their urine that produces a highly distinc-tive odor. Often, its possible to identify the presence of bats by smell alone. Mr. Neugaard says the survey is ongoing, and he hopes to have it completed by the end of the year. It will depend on the number of volunteers and how passionate they are.Ž Volunteers can reach him at neugaard@ Bat facts Florida has 13 resident bat species. The most common is the Mexican or Brazil-ian free-tailed bat, and two species „ the Florida bonneted bat and the gray bat „ are currently endangered. Natural roost-ing sites for bats in Florida include caves, hollow trees, the underside of dead palm fronds and Spanish moss. Native bats are insectivorous and can eat thousands of insects in a single night. Q „ Florida Weekly writer Evan Williams contributed to this report.

Cats are not especially popular as companion animals in Mongolia, but when I thought about it, the cats presence made sense. I con-firmed my suspicion later as I drank salty milk tea with the monasterys head lama. Is it common for monasteries to have a cat?Ž I asked. Our guide, Batana Batu, translated his response. Yes, he said. The cat is there to protect food stores from mice. Cats have served as pest control at temples and monasteries through-out the world for centuries. Egyptian temple cats were trained to hunt snakes and rodents, reported fifth century B.C. Greek historian Herodotus. In Cyprus, at the Monastery of St. Nicholas of the Cats, snakes overran the island after a drought. The monas-terys patron, the future St. Helena, had 1,000 cats brought in from Egypt and Palestine to kill the snakes. An unknown ninth-century Irish monk wrote a poem about his cat, Pan-gur Ban, that we still read and appreci-ate today:I and Pangur Ban my cat,Tis a like task we are at:Hunting mice is his delight,Hunting words I sit all night.Ž Medieval monks prized cats not only because they warred against mice to protect food stores, but also because they prevented mice from nibbling on the manuscripts the monks labored to create. The occasional inky paw print on a page was less destructive. Nuns in convents were forbidden to have pets such as dogs and monkeys „ a rule they frequently broke „ but there was one exception. The 13th-century Ancrene Wisse,Ž rules for nuns, notes in the section titled On Domestic Mat-tersŽ: You shall not possess any beast, my dear sisters, except only a cat.ŽBetween 1306 and 1467, Exeter Cathedral had a succession of official cats. A penny per week was budgeted to supple-ment the diet of the cat, who was other-wise expected to chow down on mice and other pests. The north transept wall still has a hole (an early cat door?) through which the cat could enter and exit. Several cat breeds are reputed to have originated as monastery or temple cats. The legend behind the Burmese is that Buddhist monks regarded the shorthaired brown cats as embodiments of gods.The Birman, once known as the Sacred Cat of Burma (now called Myan-mar), is said to descend from cats that were companions to temple priests in the northern part of the country. The story goes that a priest named Mun Ha, accompanied by his beloved white cat, was praying in the temple beneath the golden statue of the goddess Tsim Kyan Tse, whose eyes were represented by bril-liant sapphires. Marauders in search of treasure broke in and attacked the priest. As he lay dying, the cat rested his paws on Mun Has head and faced the statue. Suddenly, his white fur became tipped with gold, his legs darkened and his eyes changed from yellow to deep sapphire blue, but his paws remained pure white. The next morning, the remaining monks awoke to find that all the cats had under-gone the same transformation.In France, the Chartreux was once known as the monastery cat associated with Carthusian monks at the Grande Chartreuse monastery near Grenoble. The blue cats were believed to have originally come from Syria, brought to France in trade or by returning Crusad-ers in the Middle Ages. The cats mousing prowess is surely what gained him entrance to contempla-tive life, but undoubtedly his tranquil nature and love of solitude earned him a permanent home.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYPeople will say, Oh, my God. My grandmother collected that. I didnt like it then, and I dont like it now,Ž said Judy Haar of Judys Antiques in Fort Myers. The Lladro and Hummel figurines you lovingly collected for your grandkids? The generation that bought it is giving it to a generation that doesnt care,Ž Mr. Gannon said. The same goes for Grandmas set of Noritake, Haviland, Lenox or other fine china. The new generation is a generation of disposable party ware,Ž Mr. Gannon said. He literally cannot give away sets of fine china that once sold for several hun-dred dollars. I have a clearance area set up outside where Im selling sets of china for $49. Ive got Haviland-Limoges and Noritake out there. These are sets that were selling 10 years ago for $300 or more,Ž he said. But oddly enough, some pieces still have cachet. Early, early English china „ Minton. People are still collecting that. Those people are doing the fine formal dining,Ž Mr. Gannon said. Other objects always have a market.We still sell teacups. People like to do tea parties,Ž said Ms. Haar. That also happens on Floridas east coast. A lot of people have tea parties at their homes and they look for teapots and cups and sau-cers,Ž agreed Doralea Asher, owner of All Good Things, an antiques mall in Lake Worth, just south of West Palm Beach. It may be a holdover from the shabby chic craze of a decade or so ago, with painted furniture, chintzes and old-fash-ioned floral prints. People mixed and matched china patterns and teacups. Florals, those are the ones that are in the demand. Floral dinner sets that are from France or are English „ anything that is from Limoges „ but nothing plain. It has to be very French looking and very floral,Ž Ms. Asher said. It also needs to be high end.If it was high quality and expensive when you first purchased it, its still worth a lot of money now,Ž Mr. Gannon said. Thats generally speaking, but jewelry and silver by Georg Jensen, Tiffany, Cartier and others tend to appeal to folks who always could afford the finer things. Even if they lose value, they still tend to retain a higher percentage of their purchase price than lesser items. Cartier? Its no problem to sell. Some of the really good designers of jewelry in the 50s 60s and 70s are pretty hot, but they have to be good, interesting pieces,Ž said Kathleen Pica, owner and auctioneer at Auctions Neapolitan, a division of Dove-tails LLC, in Naples. Mr. Gannon noted a similar trend.Mens watches, not ladies watches, are always in good demand. Watches that are worth more than $1,000 are easier to sell than watches priced under $200,Ž he said. But that points to a trend following the recent economic crisis in which demand all but disappeared on lower to midlevel collectibles. Starting in the 1970s, 20th century American pottery was popular with col-lectors, as pieces of Rookwood, Roseville, Weller and McCoy began to increase in value, with most pieces selling for any-where from $50 or so to the low hundreds. Popularity spawns copycats, and pieces of Roseville were reproduced in China during the 1990s, causing confusion among collectors. Rookwood still sells, but for the mundane stuff, theres not a whole lot of inter-est,Ž Ms. Haar said. Prices across the mar-ket have dropped, with most ordinary pieces of 20th century American pottery selling for $50 or less. So why does Rookwood still sell?Well, it was much higher end to begin with than Roseville, Weller and McCoy. But even the better objects cycle in and out of favor. Remember Hummel figurines? The market has all but collapsed for the whimsical German porcelain figures. Hummels. My feeling is that a lot of this stuff was very collectible during a certain period of time,Ž said Ms. Haar. Royal Doulton, too. It was a trendy thing to collect, and as collectors got older and moved into assisted living, they all unloaded it at the same time. Theres just too much of it on the market.Ž She remembers when Hummels fetched big bucks. At one time, Germans came to my shop and bought them. Evidently they could buy them here cheaper, but not any more. Even Lladro has gone down.Ž The lower end Lladro figurines now fetch $30-$50 apiece, according to Mr. Gan-non. Its just like Hummels. The Hummel market 10 years ago was good. Now they just sit. You just cant give them away. I had a blowout sale where I was selling them for $10 apiece.Ž Well-designed furnishings and accessories from the middle of the 20th century are popular with collectors today. The biggest trend right now is midcentury modern, as far as desirability. Its been in the market but were seeing an ever increasing demand for it and its get-ting harder and harder to find,Ž Mr. Gan-non said. People often want something that evokes their childhood. I think its nostalgia with the midcentury pieces,Ž said Ms. Asher, the Lake Worth antiques dealer. Hobe Sound appraiser and auctioneer Tim Luke agreed.ANTIQUESFrom page 1SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYDoralea Asher sits amid antiques that span the decades of the 19th and 20th centuries at her Lake Worth shop, All Good Things. “The generation that bought it is giving it to a generation that doesn’t care.”— Rick Gannon, Gannon’s Antiques & Art, Fort Myers VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYRick Gannon holds Favrile glass pieces by Louis Comfort Tiffany at Gannon’s in Fort Myers.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2016 NEWS A9Theres some sort of reminiscence from their youth,Ž he said of collectors. Somebody had this stuff when they were growing up or they are rebelling against antiques. I think the 50s and 60s was a rebellion against that antique look.Ž Thats a trend that goes beyond the baby boom. But the really young people in their 20s and 30s gravitate to the midcentu-ry, and they gravitate to the old linens and Pyrex and the colorful glasses,Ž Ms. Asher said, remembering Swanky Swigs and other novelty glassware of the 1950s and 60s. Objects that are useful or decorative also sell. Coins sell, knives sell, vaseline glass sells,Ž said T.C. Dorler of Galleria Mall Antiques & Collectibles in Punta Gorda. Any type of yard ornaments or nautical stuff also sells.Ž Ms. Pica, the Naples auctioneer, predicts china and other objects will regain their lost luster. I think youre going to see a resurgence, with softer lines and softer details coming back,Ž she said. She can spot a trend.After 40 years, you start seeing these things over and over again. You under-stand that theyre worth money and that people want them and theyre desirable, but its the unusual that makes you go, Whoa!Ž Ms. Pica said. Thats why she sells art and antiques.Ive always been intrigued by what makes people buy what they buy. I think the business is fascinating.ŽWhat’s hotQ Midcentury „ Think quality designs from the post-World War II period by such luminaries as Charles and Ray Eames, Harry Bertoia, Norman Cherner or Eero Saarinen. We love to bring midcentury to auction,Ž said Tim Luke, a Hobe Sound-based auctioneer and appraiser who has appeared on Antiques Roadshow,Ž HGTVs Cash in the AtticŽ and Fox Busi-ness Networks Strange Inheritance.Ž Q Repurposed pieces „ When I go to Junk Bonanza (an annual event in Minne-sota), Im seeing lots of 20th-century fur-niture that theyre painting up,Ž Mr. Luke said. Now, its decorative and functional.Ž Q Silver „ People have been collecting silver, not only in bullion or coins, but Georg Jensen and Tiffany,Ž said Rick Gannon of Gannons Antiques & Art in Fort Myers. But the silver needs to carry high-end hallmarks like he mentioned. Tif-fany silver needs to carry an early mark, according to Mr. Luke. We try to make that distinction,Ž he said. Q Jewelry „ All kinds. Victorian and Deco jewelry, nice, old Mexican jewelry, Southwestern jewelry,Ž sell well, said Judy Haar of Judys Antiques in Fort Myers. Any of the old estate jewelry, say, from the 20s back, sells well.Ž Q High-end objects „ Blue-chip items, like Tiffany and Lalique sell well,Ž said Kathleen Pica, owner and auction-eer at Auctions Neapolitan, a division of Dovetails LLC, in Naples. Ms. Haar agreed. Good art glass will sell. Some of the 50s stuff will sell „ Murano, if its signed. Thats still pretty good. Of course, Steuben and Baccarat, thats always good. Even Waterford. The pieces folks are looking for are the older pieces.ŽWhat’s notQ Hummels and other collectible figurines „ You just cant give them away,Ž said Mr. Gannon. Even Lladro figurines are problematic. You have two levels, the traditional store-bought Lladro or those you had to go to an actual factory or Lladro store to buy. The bigger pieces, the ones you had to pay $800 or $1,000, still have a high demand and a high value.Ž Q Limited edition plates, dolls, figures and other items „ Mom always said they would appreciate in value,Ž said Mr. Luke. But these objects were made in the tens of thousands, rendering them common and worthless. Remember Beanie Babies? I have garbage bags of Beanie Babies that will never sell,Ž Mr. Gannon said. I have them as gifts for children and let them hold on to them if theyre good in the store.Ž Q Most furniture „ Furniture of all types is a hard sell unless its a rarity or distinctive or a really good designer,Ž said Ms. Pica. The market for most Victorian furniture is very soft, and just about every family has had a mahogany Duncan Phyfe table of some sort that carries a story of how some grandmother acquired it. But 99.99 percent of those were mass-produced sometime between 1920 and 1950, and were not very good quality to begin with. We look at those and go crazy,Ž said Mr. Luke. Q Sets of china „ Royal Copenhagens Flora Danica pattern has remained a top seller, according to Ms. Pica. But the rest? Your Limoges, Noritake, your Haviland, your china sets where they are worth $200 or under, people dont want them,Ž said Mr. Gannon. The same goes for Lenox, Wedgwood and other seemingly high-end dinnerware. Sets of china? Cant sell it, and it takes up more room than its worth. Gosh, there was a time when (Replace-ments Ltd.) would come down from North Carolina and buy big sets of dishes. Those days are gone, my friend,Ž said Ms. Haar. Q Lower to middle level collectibles „ Remember Fenton, Fostoria and other Depression-era glass? Well, the market for that has dropped in most areas. The same is true for other items priced under $100 or so that once were the mainstay of any antiques shop or show, said Mr. Gannon. Of course, markets may vary. T.C. Dorler of Galleria Mall Antiques & Collectibles in Punta Gorda says she still has collectors of Fenton glass and Wade figurines during the season. Q LUKE Fans of shabby chic still buy floral pieces of china, especially French and English pieces. People still buy tea cups for parties. Glamalite tumblers offer midcentury style. Elegant Depression-era glass, like this Fostoria American pattern punch bowl, has lost value. What to doSo you have inherited Mom’s collection of Bradford Exchange or Franklin Mint plates. She paid $35 apiece but they’re only bringing $5 on eBay, so what do you do? “Hold a garage sale, but don’t have high expectations,” said appraiser and auctioneer Tim Luke, co-owner of Treasure Quest Appraisal Group of Hobe Sound. Or donate it to a charity.Mr. Luke suggests people consider repurposing furniture with paint and other trimmings. A good part of the business at Dovetails LLC in Naples is Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. “I think you’re going to see a resurgence of softer lines and softer details coming back,” said Kathleen Pica, owner and auctioneer at Dovetails and its subsidiary, Auctions Neapolitan. “I think that’s part of why I think that look is coming back. The lighter grays are very good.” “It has to be light furniture, said T.C. Dorler of Galleria Mall Antiques & Collectibles in Punta Gorda. “Shabby chic is huge — anything shabby chic is huge,” she said, citing the rustic, pastel-painted furniture and oral accessories that have been popular over the past decade. Even if they’re not on a piece of shabby chic furniture, light colors are hip and are oh, so Florida. “Obviously, we’re in a coastal area, so we’re going to do more coastal than the rest of the country,” Ms. Pica said. Repurposing an item is an inexpensive way to achieve a look for which folks are willing to spend thousands and to honor Mom’s legacy.— Scott SimmonsSCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLY

Lurking in the shadows and ready to pounce at a moments notice. We live among you, and often you will barely notice our presence. Our car of choice is the 2016 Volkswagen Golf R. It takes the right kind of person to want to spend $37K on this car. It is a true sleeper that wont get many sec-ond glances. Not too many people will recognize the special 18-inch wheels, unique front bumper or quad tailpipes. In fact, this car is more likely to get dismissed for a standard Golf that costs half as much. This is not great for the crowd who took their Day-Glo neon fashion cues from the Fast and FuriousŽ movie fran-chise. But those who need to embody responsibility in their daily lives can find a benefit in this incognito appear-ance. The interior has a similar inconspicuous appearance. This just feels like a well-optioned Golf with power front seats, leather and dual zone climate control as standard. There are only a few clues that this is a hotshot in hiding „ like the paddle shifters on the steer-ing wheel and the mode Ž butt on that curiously has a race setting. Even starting up the motor is a nonevent. It fires to life with the precision of any other commuting machine, and while there is a little extra tone from the exhaust, it wont set off car alarms in the corporate parking garage. So why all the fuss and expensive price for the Golf R? Because when the driver is ready to have fun, so is this hatchback. Give a poke to the accelerator, and something awakens in this car like a schoolboy hearing the last bell before summer. The once-tame exhaust begins to bellow a sweet sound of power. The turbo motor bursts to life and runs hard and fast „ to the point that it is eligible for a hefty speeding ticket before the end of an on-ramp. The key to this cars lying-in-wait nature is that the 2.0-liter motor has all the multivalve and dual overhead cam-shaft setup that makes similar motors lively and nice for everyday life. So it can feel fine just around town until the massive turbocharger is fully engaged, and the full 292 horsepower is sum-moned. But more than just a pure speed machine, the Golf R inspires confi-dence with an all-wheel drive chassis, enhanced sports suspension and very sticky sports tires. It gives this light hatchback a surefooted stability that feels exceptionally solid on the highway and even makes urban U-turns a blast. But what about the price? After all, $36,470 is a lot for a compact VW, and that does not include optional features like the dual-clutch automatic transmis-sion ($1,100) and adaptive sports sus-pension ($2,245). But the pricing fits into a strategic hierarchy. The VW Golf GTI looks quite similar but gives up the all-wheel drive and 82 horsepower. A completely load-ed version of that hatchback costs about $5K less than the base Golf R. For those wanting a premium badge with their premium pricing, most of the mechani-cal elements are repeated in the Audi S3, which costs about $5K more. Being a midpoint between a budget speed machine and an all-out premium sports car is what the Golf R does best. It doesnt ride like the springs were made from concrete, and the exhaust doesnt howl like its coming from a cof-fee can. Thats the true appeal of the car. It spent plenty of time with the engineers so that we can live with it for the 95 percent of the time we all use a car as an appliance. It fits in with an everyday lifestyle for everyday driving. But for that 5 percent of driving time that enthusiasts live for „ anything from weekend getaway to just an oppor-tune gap in traffic „ this Golf R is ready and waiting to pounce. Q myles

Q TrustCo Bank honors people who make a difference FLORIDA WRITERSA technological thriller that’s a fun treat not to be missed QAssassins SilenceŽ by Ward Larsen. Forge. 400 pages. Hardcover, $25.99.Reading this book was almost too much fun. There is so much pleasure to be had in the appreciation of a piece of writing that reaches such a high peak of control over its many interlocking frag-ments. Ward Larsens new technological thriller, the third installment of his David Slaton Series, is a masterful piece of plot construction and of balancing what is to be revealed and what withheld. Jammer Davis, the protagonist of another Larsen series, makes a delight-ful appearance, guiding the decisions of security agency heads who can barely tolerate his disdain for protocol. Strange things are happening in Malta. David Slaton, an ex-Mossad assassin thought to be dead in order to protect his wife and son, is in trouble. He finds himself encountering and eliminating the members of a team put together for the purpose of implementing a world-threatening terrorist action. But some of them find him first. Meanwhile, in Brazil, a large, long out of use MD-10 transport plane has been sought, purchased and secretly outfitted for a special mission „ perhaps a one-time mission. It holds in its enormous cargo tanks a huge quantity of radioac-tive material. And it is headed to the Middle East. By shifting perspectives, locations, and expectations, the author keeps the read-er guessing. Each new revelation about the planes mission, the ter-rorists motives, the execution plan, the characters responsibilities and the range of technological capabilities ups the sus-pense while raising new questions.In Langley, Va., a CIA team is trying to put the pieces together so that disas-ter can be forestalled and U.S. inter-ests protected. Who lives in Virginia? David Slatons wife, Christine, and their young son. Who is involved in the CIA investigation? Jammer Daviss sometime girlfriend, special agent Sorensen. Jam-mers slow burn through the thick layer of bureaucracy and professional turf guarding is a treat not to be missed. Where else does Mr. Larsen take us, in scenes that follow Slatons movements? Beirut. Readers enter todays Beirut and also glimpse its history and centrality to Mid-dle East dynamics. All of Mr. Wards settings are vividly described, as are the cultural and atmospheric flavors. This is true of Mdina, the tiny ancient capital of Malta surrounded by a more populous suburb, and also of the CIA offices in Virginia, the remote Brazilian airport and downtown Zurich. Never over-written, these settings frame the ongoing character portraits and action in a way that gives credibility and force to each step and turning point. Assassins SilenceŽ is a series of journeys: relocations of David Slaton and other characters, and relocations of the readers imagination that fuel a relent-less sense of movement and urgency. Something important is always at stake, and often enough it is Slatons life. Knowing how to get from point A to point B without being recognized and on schedule is an absolute requirement. Such abilities are part of the tradecraft that go into the making of Mr. Larsens mysterious assassin. He must have a plan and the means to execute it. He must be able to improvise if things dont go well. He most know how to select the best vantage points to see what he needs to see „ often with-out being noticed. Choosing a seat in a public square is not a trivial matter. Slaton most know where nearby doors lead, whats behind them and whether they are likely to be locked or blocked. He must be one or two steps ahead of those for whom he is a target. He must have the best weap-ons and other equipment for the task at hand. Mr. Larsen takes us through Slatons mental preparations in abundant, intriguing detail. He also explores Sla-tons life of self-imposed loneliness in a highly effective manner. In Assassins Silence,Ž Ward Larsen is on top of his game.About the authorUSA Today bestselling author Ward Larsen is a three-time winner of the Florida Book Award. His first thriller, The Perfect Assassin,Ž is being adapted into a major motion picture by Amber Entertainment.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYIt is with hard earned wisdom that many look back on the days prior to the advent of cell phones, PDA’s, Pads, and portable computers and wish that those happy days were here again. Further, the quantum explosion in social media and related sites has provided a world-wide audience for its participants and has created a digital world that is unique to this age in the history of humanity. Society has moved beyond the information age to the age of forced transparency. Many learn too late that information contained on a digital product they deemed private is in fact subject to public review. These digital tools record and broadcast information like the present location of its owner without the owner’s explicit knowledge or even consent. In an announcement made recently by NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, upholding the 4 game suspension of football hero, Tom Brady, he cited the destruction by Tom Brady of his cell phone as proof positive of Brady’s guilt. The Commissioner imputed Brady with destruction of evidence that, if known, would have proven his complicity in what is now known as “deflatgate”. Our individual electronic signatures are as unique as our fingerprints. Every digitalized mechanism contains something called “metadata” which leaves a shadow of information that formerly existed. In family law litigation, the request for computers, phones, even Apple and other digital watches in discovery is common place. These products are analyzed by forensic technology experts for hidden, coded, and even erased information. Bank account numbers, former communications, pictures, and even tweeted or texted comments may be resurrected. This information is reconstructed from the metadata and then becomes the “smoking gun” in most cases. Where the product is actually destroyed, such as in the Tom Brady matter, the Court is allowed to presume that the evidence contained within that product was so negative for its owner that the owner destroyed it to avoid proof of guilt. The destruction of evidence is a serious matter in any court proceeding. Please consult with a qualified attorney before making any decision that has legal implications.

Whether its a quick visit to the pediatric emergency room after a tumble or something more specialized, such as sur-gery, the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital is committed to developing new pro-grams and treatment centers to address the medical needs of kids. As you may or may not know, our childrens hospital has been treating pediat-ric oncology patients for more than 20 years. As part of our mission, we are always researching ways to better address the complex needs of these special patients. We are excited to announce that we have created a center dedicated to car-ing for our oncology patients beyond remission. Our newly opened K.I.T.E. (Knowing the Importance of Treatment Effects) Center is the only long-term oncology follow-up center available in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties for children who have completed cancer therapy more than two years ago. With this center and the additional resources available at the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital, families are given hope at the time of diagnosis, during treatment and throughout the healing and recovery process. Understanding childhood cancerAs of January 1, 2010, there were approximately 388,000 survivors of childhood and adolescent cancer in the United States. This number is expected to continue increasing, given that the incidence of childhood cancer has been slightly ris-ing in recent decades and that survival rates overall are improving. Unlike cancer in adults, the factors that trigger cancer in children are not often linked to lifestyle or environmental risks factors, such as tobacco and alco-hol use, poor diet, and/or a sedentary lifestyle. In most cases, pediatric cancers arise from noninherited DNA changes in cells that take place very early in life or sometimes even before birth. A doctor might be able to spot early symptoms of cancer at regular checkups. However, some symptoms, such as fever, frequent infections or bruises are often associated with common conditions and may not be detected as cancer related. At the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital, our dedicated oncology nurses, affiliated pediatric oncologists and additional spe-cialists work around the clock to heal our oncology patients. We are part of a handful of elite community hospital programs nationwide belong-ing to the Childrens Oncology Group, sup-ported by the National Cancer Institute. Should he or she need our expert care, your child will have access to advanced research and treatment options that are currently available.Once the cancer has been diagnosed, its important to seek help from a medical cen-ter that specializes in pediatric oncology. Treatment plans can include chemotherapy, radiation and/or surgery, and depends on the type and severity of the disease. The good news is that childhood cancers tend to respond better to treatments than adult cancers, but treatments such as chemo and radiation can cause long-term side effects. Treatment optionsQ Surgery — Combined with chemotherapy and radiation, surgery can help effectively re-move cancer when it hasn’t spread to other parts of the body. Q Chemotherapy — Patients can be given chemotherapy intravenously or orally. Some forms can even be given intrathecally, or into the spinal uid. The duration of chemotherapy treatment, type and number of drugs used depends on the type of cancer and your child’s response to treatment. Chemotherapy carries the risk of both short-term and long-term problems, which you should discuss with your child’s doctor. Q Bone marrow transplants — If your child has a type of cancer that affects the function of blood cells, a bone marrow transplant (along with chemotherapy to kill the defective cells) may allow healthy cells to grow. Bone mar-row transplants are also used to help treat can-cer that doesn’t involve blood cells because it lets doctors use higher doses of chemo than would otherwise be tolerated. Q Radiation — This is one of the most common treatments for cancer. A child who receives radiation therapy is treated with a stream of high-energy particles or waves that destroy or damage cancer cells. Many pediat-ric cancers are treated with radiation in con-junction with chemotherapy and/or surgery. This treatment method has many potential side effects (such as an increased risk of fu-ture malignancy and infertility), which you should discuss with your child’s doctor. Healing after treatmentOne of the Palm Beach Childrens Hospitals newest resources, The K.I.T.E. Centers mission is to help ensure that each child remains healthy long after completing cancer therapy. We do this by having patients undergo various screening tests and evaluations to help determine their need for further treat-ment. Here, patients will have access to specially trained pediatricians and pediatric nurses, respiratory therapists, cardiolo-gists, radiologists, a dietary specialist, a licensed clinical social worker, who is able to provide psychological and emo-tional support, and pediatric outpatient rehabilitation therapists. This long-term oncology follow-up clinic is dedicated to empowering sur-vivors by providing information about their post-cancer medical care, monitor-ing for potential late effects from cancer therapies and helping them reach their life goals.

The analysis covered more than 2.1 million single-family homes nation-wide owned by either single men (1,139,493) or single women (1,011,572) based on public record tax assessor data collected by RealtyTrac. The average estimated current market value of homes owned by single men was $255,226 „ 10 percent higher than the average current market value of homes owned by single women, which was $229,094. Homes owned by single men have gained an average of $63,921 since pur-chase, a 33 percent return on purchase price. That was $10,112 (16 percent) more than the average $53,809 gain since purchase for homes owned by single women, a 31 percent return on purchase price. Women earn less than men on average „ 19 percent less in 2015 according to the Bureau of Labor Sta-tistics „ giving them less purchasing power when it comes to buying a home,Ž said Daren Blomquist, senior vice president at RealtyTrac, which released the report in late May. So its not surprising to see the 10 percent gender gap in average home values between single men and single women homeowners; however, the slower home price appreciation for homes owned by single women demonstrates that less purchasing power is also hav-ing on a domino effect on their ability to build wealth through homeowner-ship as quickly as single men.Ž Among homes owned for at least 15 years, those owned by single men on average had a current market value of $288,912 „ 17 percent higher than the average current market value of homes owned by single women „ $240,166. Homes owned for at least 15 years by single men have gained an aver-age of $170,765 since purchase „ a 145 percent return on purchase price. That was $36,496 more than the aver-age $134,269 gain since purchase for homes owned at least 15 years by single women „ a 127 percent return on purchase price. Average values of homes owned by single men were the highest above average values of homes owned by single women in the District of Columbia (14 percent higher), followed by Flor-ida (12 percent higher), West Virginia (12 percent higher), Wisconsin (12 per-cent higher), Texas (10 percent high-er), and Alabama (10 percent higher). There were three states where the average values of homes owned by single women were higher than the average values of homes owned by single men: Massachusetts (11 percent higher), Kentucky (2 percent higher), and Kansas (1 percent higher). Average home value gains for homes owned by single men were highest above average home value gains for homes owned by single women in West Virginia (72 percent higher), Wisconsin (41 percent higher), Ala-bama (40 percent higher), Maine (35 percent higher), and Minnesota (34 percent higher). There were eight states where single women homeowners have realized bigger home value gains since pur-chase than single men homeowners, led by New York (30 percent more), New Jersey (29 percent more), North Dakota (22 percent more), Massachu-setts (11 percent more) and Virginia (8 percent more). The analysis also looked at neighborhood characteristics in ZIP codes with a higher share of single men homeownership compared to neigh-borhood characteristics in ZIP codes with a higher share of single women homeownership. In ZIP codes with a higher share of single women homeownership, the average RealtyTrac Registered Crimi-nal Offender Index was 19.19 „ 7 percent higher than the average index of 17.87 in ZIP codes with a higher share of single man homeownership. The RealtyTrac Registered Criminal Offender Index is based on the num-ber of registered criminal offenders (including sex offenders, child preda-tors, kidnappers and violent offend-ers) as a percentage of population. In ZIP codes with a higher share of single woman homeownership, the average RealtyTrac Environmental Hazards Housing Risk Index was 45.69 „ 23 percent lower than the average index of 59.40 in ZIP codes with a higher share of single man homeown-ership. The RealtyTrac Environmental Hazards Housing Risk Index is based on the prevalence of five manmade environmental hazards: air quality, superfund sites, polluters, brownfields and former drug labs. Q


GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2016 BUSINESS A19 MONEY & INVESTINGTransformation of GE makes it worth a look for investorsWhen you think of GE what is the first thing that comes to mind? Probably a refrigerator or washing machine, right? Ill bet it will surprise most readers to know that GE doesnt even make these appliances any more, having sold this line of business to the Chinese company Haier in January. Even more interesting is that this sale wasnt even the biggest or most sig-nificant strategic move the company has undertaken in the last few years. In fact, I would argue that GE has undergone the most significant transformation of any large publicly traded corporation here in the U.S., which makes it a very interest-ing investment idea. GE made headlines recently when it became the first large company to escape the too big to failŽ designation by the U.S. government. Recall that after the financial crisis, the U.S. Financial Oversight Council was established to designate which banks and financial companies posed a risk to the general economy should they collapse. These companies were designated as systematically importantŽ and extreme-ly strict capital requirements were placed on these financial companies. But why should an industrial company be lumped together with large banks like Citigroup and Bank of America? The answer is that under its previous CEO, Jack Welch, GE was as much a bank as it was a manufacturing company. In 2011, almost 35 percent of GEs revenues came from its GE Capital divi-sion. The financial arm of the company had over $600 billion of assets on its balance sheet, ranging from credit card receivables to leases to construction loans. It was GE Capital that drove much of GEs earnings growth in the early 2000s as manufacturing slowed. After the financial meltdown, CEO Jeffrey Immelt decided that GE could not withstand the huge earnings volatility and risk of being in this line of business. He started to sell GE Capitals huge portfolio and return to its roots as an industrial inno-vator. It has sold everything from its auto fleet financing to online banking to commercial real estate divisions. In the last year alone, it has sold almost $200 billion worth of financial assets. The removal of the systematically importantŽ label on GE will benefit the company in two primary ways in the near future. First, it will allow GE to return more capital to shareholders. Many believe that management will soon announce an increase in dividends, higher share buybacks or both before the end of the year, which should also positively affect GEs stock price. Secondly, the company will have greater balance sheet flexibility going forward. Previously, the government mandated that GE keep a sizable capital reserve and restricted the amount of debt it could own. Now those restrictions are gone. This will free GE to pursue a major acquisition that can be funded by debt or take advantage of todays historically low interest rates to fund internal growth within the company. And fortunately for GE, there are many growth areas within the company to fund to offset the decline in finan-cial revenue. GEs software business is becoming more and more a significant source of earnings. Its manufacturing division is also doing well with more orders for power turbines, jet engines and industrial equip-ment. And other areas within GE, like healthcare and oil and gas, are expected to ramp up in the years ahead as well. So it is this combination of higher growth as well as the potential for increased dividends and stock buybacks that make GE such an interesting invest-ment. It is a rare occurrence when such a large company successfully transforms its business model in such a meaning-ful manner, but it looks like GE is in the early stages of doing just that. Q „ Eric Bretan, the co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda, was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. eric CARSTEN REISINGER / SHUTTERSTOCK.COM MOVING ON UP As someone who serves as a director or trustee on several private not-for-profit boards, Cornelia CornieŽ Thorn-burgh says she knows a society cannot function well if the least advantaged in its communities are without hope. Strong communities are hopeful ones where every mem-ber has a sense of worth and personal promise,Ž says Mrs. Thornburgh, the new chairman of The Lords Place board of directors. If we allow our communi-ties to accept homelessness as a necessary fact of life, then we are giving up on the very essence of what makes a society great and aban-doning those most in need to lives of despair.Ž She joined The Lords Place (thelords, an agency committed to breaking the cycle of homelessness in Southeastern Florida, in 2012, and headed the organizations advancement committee. She was the boards secre-tary before becoming chairman. The Lords Place, a nonprofit organization that has been changing the lives of the homeless in Palm Beach County for more than 30 years, is committed to building hopeful communities at their most local level. By providing housing, valuable job skills and peer-to-peer support, The Lords Place seeks to attack one of the worse symptoms of poverty,Ž she said. Fortunately, I have found among the staff and board of The Lords Place a group of individuals who are single-mindedly focused on breaking the cycle of homelessness. We share a concern and passion to serve others who are without access to the avenues that make life meaningful.Ž Among the most focused leaders, she said, are CEO Diana Stanley and chief program officer Daniel Gibson. But they have lots of help, Mrs. Thornburgh said, including those who greet our clients at the front door or work on our cam-puses or those who volunteer their time and talents, each member of The Lords Place shares a concern and passion for helping those in need. I think we all realize that if we have the good fortune to make a difference, then we should,Ž Mrs. Thornburgh, 57, said. It is the restoration of hope that makes us strong again and it is that look in the eyes of our clients that is so rewarding and promising for our com-munity and for me personally.Ž Her goal, she says, is to develop a better type of endowment so we build up reserves to help us weather lean times.Ž Mrs. Thornburgh is the first womans chair of Trinity Colleges board of trustees in Hartford, Conn. She was a founder of Trinity Womens Leader-ship Council and former tri-chair of the colleges capital campaign to raise $350 million. Six years ago, Mrs. Thornburgh was the first women recipient of Trinitys Eigenbrodt Cup, the highest honor for alumni of the college. Mrs. Thornburgh was former chair of the board of trustees for Convent of the Sacred Heart, a pre-K through 12 private independent girls school in New York City. In 2014, Sacred Heart opened a second campus consisting of a 50,000square-foot athletic facility in Manhattan that she was instrumental in launching, along with co-chairing a $75 million campaign to support its construction. Ms. Thornburgh also was a trustee of the American Ballet Theatre and the Zurich International School. Where I grew up: Westport, Conn. Where I live now: In Palm Beach with my husband, Richard Thornburgh, a private investor and vice-chairman of Corsair Capital. (They have three grown daughters.) Education: BA, Trinity College (Hartford) 1980; MBA, Columbia Busi-ness School (New York) 1985. What brought me to Florida: Retirement. My first job and what it taught me: Financial Analyst at The First Boston Corp. in New York (now Credit Suisse); A valuable understanding of what makes corporations successful and its not just the numbers „ managers vary in personality and style but those who are the most successful are those who value and celebrate teamwork. A career highlight: Raising capital for one of the first wind energy com-panies in the early 80s; helping to launch a Hispanic grocery chain with an innovative advertising campaign in Los Angeles. (My career after business school was in advertising.) Opening a second campus with one of the largest secondary athletic facilities for second-ary schools in Manhattan (when I was that schools board chair). What I do when Im not working: Golf, biking and paddle boarding. I used to race J-24 sailboats and still occasion-ally sail. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field (or as a phi-lanthropist/volunteer leader): Be passionate about the mission of the nonprofit; value the team of staff pro-fessionals and those who volunteer. Be inclusive and take opportunities to recognize all of the members who make the agency work. About mentors: My best mentor is my husband, who tells it to me straight while always encouraging me!

Norton reopens, plans celebration for Bastille Day BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@” oridaweekly.comIts a free for all at the Norton Museum of Art! Well, not really. But its free. For all. The museum reopened after closing down to prepare for its upcoming expan-sion. Early this year, the Norton broke ground on an extensive remodeling proj-ect by architecture firm Foster Partners. The updated plan moves the entrance to face South Dixie Highway and includes a new 42,000-square-foot West Wing. Out-side, the 6.3-acre campus will bloom with new green space and a sculpture garden. July 14ths Art After Dark party also is one of its liveliest, and its packed with activities. The museum will cel-ebrate Bastille Day, an important French holiday because it signified the start of the French Revolution. Most people know that Bastille Day is named for the storm-ing of the Bastille, a medieval fortress and prison. You may have imagined hundreds or thousands off inmates falsely impris-oned by the corrupt monarchy. Storming the Bastille freed only seven inmates, but it didnt matter. The event served as a sign of support for the French Revolution. At the Norton, its a Francophiles dream: French culture, music, food, art and even a language class and an art class are planned. BTW, did we mention admis-sion is free? AAD Bastille Day takes place from 5 to 9 p.m. July 14 and its packed with French-inspired activities. At 5:30 p.m., a tour, Trois Femmes: Images of Women in French Art,Ž will be offered. At 7:30 p.m., the tour is Trois Hommes: Images of Men in French Art.Ž From 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., en plein air painters Hope B. Reis and Alessandra Gieffers will be painting in the central courtyard. Theyll demonstrate how changing light influences their work, and will discuss how important light was to French Impressionists. Up in the classroom, the DIY class will be painting with pastels. To inspire you, theyll talk about French painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir, who loved to paint people having fun. You can try your hand at capturing the joy of AADs Bastille Day celebrants. The music for the night is lively: The gypsy jazz and French pop of The French Horn Collective, a Miami-based band led by multitalented Parisian transplant HAPPENINGSChamber music fest marks 25th seasonSEE HAPPENINGS, B12 X SEE CHAMBER, B2 X SEE CREATIVE, B12 X COURTESY PHOTOPalm Beach Chamber Music Festival princi-pals join other musicians in a performance.COURTESY PHOTOThe 1941 Norton Museum entrance. ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2016 | SECTION B WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM BY KATIE DEITSFlorida Weekly CorrespondentThe Center for Creative Education isnt just for kids. Yes, the 21-year-old nonprofit organization brings art-based education to Palm Beach County children. But what Jonathon Ortiz-Smykla would like you to see is the art gallery at the CCEs Northwood campus in West Palm Beach. Since joining the organization as gallery manager in October, he has produced seven exhibitions, each with 80 to 90 works of art. BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@” oridaweekly.comThey have been at it for a quarter century. But the founders of the Palm Beach Chamber Music Festival show no sign of slowing as they plan the 25th install-ment of their summer festival, set for July 8-31 at venues across the county. Palm Beach County was another world when flutist Karen Dixon, bas-soonist Michael Ellert and clarinetist Michael Forte planned that first festival in 1992. To put things in perspective, none of the venues the festival now uses was in existence at that time. Palm Beach State Colleges Eissey Campus Theatre in Palm Beach Gardens was two years from opening. Palm Beach Atlantic Uni-versitys Helen K. Persson Hall had not yet been built, and Old School Squares Crest Theatre was a year away from opening. There was no Kravis Center yet „ it would not open until the fall of 1992. And all information was sent via the postal service „ there was no internet, Gallery gets creative The Center for Creative Education also hosts exhibitions and events to appeal to adults. “Busted” is an elaborately framed painting by Craig McInnis “Vanya and Llaila,” painting by Anthony Burks, will be featured in “Collaboration: African Diaspora.” “Frank Goes to Pooch Island” is a painting by Michael Pucciarelli, AKA “Pooch.”XX


there were no e-blasts and no social media. But through it all, the commitment to music has remained the same. Ive been working on a project to log the number of works weve done over the years,Ž Mr. Ellert said. Weve worked with 140 different musicians and have per-formed 364 different works.Ž We always have new pieces by new composers or old pieces by old composers that nobody knows,Ž Ms. Dixon said. If we did Schuberts Trout Quintet every year, nobody would complain,Ž Mr. Ellert said. Of course we dont,Ž Ms. Dixon said.Of course they dont.To celebrate our anniversary, were focusing on big stuff. But you still have a couple of trios and a quartet and a quintet and a sextet,Ž Ms. Dixon said. One thing for which the festival is known is its mix of the familiar and the unfamiliar. This years programming is no different.Expect something weighty, courtesy of Wolf-Ferraris Symphonia da camera in Bb Major,Ž Opus 8, set for the last weekend of performances. Its a huge piece, like 45 minutes long. Its a string quintet, wind quintet and piano.Its romantic and beautiful,Ž Ms. Dixon said. Expect to smile when the group plays Ponchiellis Dance of the Hours,Ž from his opera La Gioconda.Ž My husband refers to that as flash and trash. You cant help but smile when you listen to it. Its so much fun. Everybody knows it,Ž Ms. Dixon said. Therell definitely be chuckles in the audience,Ž Mr. Forte said.Also distinctive: performances of Mozarts Piano Concerto No. 23 in A Major,Ž K. 488, arranged for piano, flute, clarinet, bassoon, horn, trumpet, two violins, viola, cello and bass. Roberta Rust will be the soloist, and there will be no conductor.Audiences also will hear Mozarts Symphony No. 36 in C Major,Ž arranged for flute, oboe, two clarinets, two horns and two bassoons. Its an interesting arrangement of that symphony, with winds and doublebass and no strings,Ž said Ms. Dixon. Thats the familiar. The group also will give the world premiere of Clark McAlisters CanzonaŽ for flute, oboe, clarinet, horn, bassoon and trumpet and will play Rosalie (Rosy) Marie Wertheims TrioŽ (1942) for flute, clarinet and bassoon. After 25 seasons and 24 years of working one-on-one with this festival, they have their job roles down pat. All three play as part of the Palm Beach Opera orches-tra. Mr. Ellert and Mr. Forte also perform with the Southwest Florida Symphony in Fort Myers, and Ms. Dixon and Mr. Ellert also play with the Boca Raton Symphonia, among others. At times, they finish each others sentences. We kind of know what were doing at this point,Ž Ms. Dixon said. Michael Ellert finds the music and the programs. Michael Forte deals with venues and piano rentals and piano tuners, so we all sort of fall into these roles. Were still sort of flying by the seat of our pants all the time, but somehow it all comes together year after year.Ž Just like their patrons, many of whom have come since the beginning. They make a point of coming up to us and saying, We were at your very first concerts, which is kind of sweet,Ž said Mr. Forte. Just like the music. Q The chamber music season The 2016 season dates and repertoire are as follows: Program 17:30 p.m. Friday, July 8Helen K.

WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2016 B7 Florida Atlantic University recently announced that Theatre Lab, the profes-sional resident company of FAU, will fully produce three new works as part of its 2016-17 season. Housed on the Boca Raton campus, Theatre Lab is complet-ing a renovation of its intimate 99-seat Heckscher Stage theater space in Parlia-ment Hall to accommodate the design elements for full production. In its first season, Theatre Lab established FAU as a force in the national professional theater movement,Ž said Lou Tyrrell, Theatre Labs artistic direc-tor. With our second season, Theatre Lab will produce three plays we helped to develop this past year.Ž Theatre Labs mission is the development and production of new work in American theater, also providing a training ground for FAU students inter-ested in careers in professional theater and the world of not-for-profit arts. These three plays represent our commitment to producing a range of new work that best supports American playwrights,Ž said Des Gallant, produc-ing director. One is a world premiere, another an important second produc-tion of a play, the third a developing production, to prepare the play for its eventual official premiere.Ž With its laboratory approach to new play development, Theatre Lab allows FAU faculty and students, along with the entire South Florida community, to be an actual part of the artistic process, actively engaged by world-class pro-fessional theater performances, work-shops, conversations with leading play-wrights and theater artists. The 2016-17 Theatre Lab season:Q The Three Sisters of Weehawken,Ž by Deborah Zoe Laufer „ World premiere Friday, Oct. 21, to Sunday, Nov. 6. Olga, Masha and Irina have dreamt of returning to their childhood home of Manhattan all their lives. There it lies, gleaming, a mere ferry ride away from their provincial home in Weehawken, N.J. Though their sister-in-law, Natasha, tries valiantly to help them realize their dream with offers of work, tickets, maps, guidebooks, even anti-depressants, old patterns are hard to break. Q  This Random World,Ž by Steven Dietz „ Southeast premiere Friday, Dec. 2, to Sunday, Dec. 18. This Random WorldŽ turns the myth of serendipity on its head, using a comic premise of missed opportunities to explore the most serious of things. From an ailing woman who plans one final trip, to her daughter planning one great escape and her son falling prey to a prank gone wrong „ this funny, inti-mate and heartwarming play presents the life that may be happening just out of reach of our own. Q Motherland,Ž by Allison Gregory „ Friday, Jan. 27, to Sunday, Feb. 12. A self-made woman does her crafty best to protect her wayward children, keep her food truck business thriving, and impart some kind of moral code in a city battling collapse. In Motherland,Ž grit, guile and guns are everyday parent-ing tools, and hope comes at a cost. A new play inspired by Bertolt Brechts Mother Courage and Her Children,Ž considered one of the most important plays of the 20th century. For tickets and subscription information, call 297-6124 or visit Q Theatre Lab at FAU to produce 3-play season for 2016-17SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________

Those aspirations are the glory of the American spirit. As a result, the musical 1776,Ž a bit hokey, a bit broad, has somehow landed solidly all these years as something more than well constructed light enter-tainment mixed with insightful reflec-tions of our better selves. That was before. In these terrible times of violence, deprivation and polarization, the resonances in Palm Beach Dramaworks imaginatively rein-vented production are deafening. In the current context, Dramaworks effective and affecting edition of the 1969 musical also elicits rare feelings in these cynical post-modern times: pride in being an American, pride in being the heirs to those who founded this country. While some may find it feels too much like a musical comedy, Peter Stones superb script pointedly depicts pro-tagonists as flawed human beings and Sherman Edwards score mixes bouncy comedy tunes such as The Lees of Old VirginiaŽ with the profound anti-war lament Momma, Look Sharp.Ž Dramaworks takes it a step further. Director Clive Cholerton and Produc-ing Artistic Director William Hayes have, as they fondly repeat, delivered a 1776Ž like youve never seen before. The show usually requires a huge cast and large orchestra that wouldnt fit on Dramaworks stage even if the com-pany could afford it. But this marks the first time Dramaworks has gone beyond concert versions of musicals during the summer and opted for a full production. So Cholerton and Hayes decided that while it would not scrimp on produc-tion values, it would do the show with 13 actors and five on-stage musicians. The strategy was to cast everyone but Gary Cadwallader as John Adams in two and even three roles. Advancing their thematic conception of evenhand-edly portraying partisans on both sides as earnest, honest people, most actors portray a pro-separation advocate and alternately a Tory loyalist. Actors slip unnoticed offstage where stage crews help them change costumes, only to reappear moments later. This really should not work, but it does. Truthfully, only one performer, Nicholas Richberg, really makes you forget the double casting as he inhabits the ebullient Richard Henry Lee and the sober smooth John Dickinson. It doesnt matter. Cholerton and Hayes embrace the brand of artifice you can only find in theater. The magic trick is part of the point. In fact, characters often change costumes and personas on stage such as Laura Hodos donning Abi-gail Adams dress over John Hancocks waistcoat in half-shadows stage left. They also devised a framing device that sounds precious, but in fact, works quite well: The cast enters in modern dress representing a cross section of social-political-economic strata all glued to their Smartphones and tablets. They wander awash in Sean Lawsons cacoph-onous array of projections and news footage of Clinton, Trump, commenta-tors and clips of social unrest, including the ironic Brexit events. Someone then tweets on screen, Its never been this bad.Ž The images respond by rolling backward in time through the decades of political scandals and infighting until we reach 1776 and we see Cadwalladers modern-day clothes stripped away to reveal a brocaded waistcoat. 1776Ž traces the bickering, deeply divided Continental Congress as it wrestles whether to rebel against Great Britain, crystallized by the writing and potential adoption of the Declaration of Independence. While Stone takes some artistic license, he quotes liberally from actual correspondence among the principals and he faithfully captures the complex issues and the myriad multidi-mensional personalities. Cholerton, who has staged several concert musicals for Dramaworks and the Caldwell Theatre, has an inspired eye for staging with a score of unique grace notes. One way he has striven to give equal weight to both sides of the argument is to adopt a cinematically changing visual point of view. Several times, the cast rearranges pieces so the audience sees a scene from three differ-ent vantage points. The cast has some of the cream of the regions corps. Cadwallader has been a Central Florida actor seen little down here, but has recently taken the post of director of education and community engagement at Dramaworks. Adams is a tougher role than it appears since he only has two real colors: the scowling impatient abrasive firebrand, and the husband missing his wife. But he deliv-ers both with passion and credibility. Allan Baker is an old hand at comedy, so his Benjamin Franklin is a mixture of playfulness and self-effacing humor. But Baker adeptly switches gears, portray-ing a wily politician and cool pragmatist whose wisdom rescues several situa-tions. Hodos, with that clarion clear voice, is fine as Hancock, but her Abigail is a blissful brew of adoration, indepen-dence and intelligence. Notably, her love duets with Cadwallader are deeply moving. Richberg, seen as Giorgio in Zoetic Stages Passion,Ž is wonderfully daffy as the strutting Richard Henry Lee, but the epitome of cultured privi-lege as the principled Dickinson. But the steal-the-show standout is Shane R. Tanner as the fiery Edward Rutledge, whose attack on northern complicity in the slave trade Molasses to Rum to SlavesŽ is the turning point. It is one of the best musical theater performances you will see this season. Mallory Newbrough is a glowing Martha Jefferson in a sensual He Plays the Violin,Ž a chastened young courier in the moving Momma, Look SharpŽ and, we think, a dour George Washington. Add in the ever-reliable Clay Cartland as Thomas Jefferson and Dr. Lyman Hall, plus James Berkley, Michael Col-lins, Kevin Healy, Matthew Korinko, Troy Stanley and Sandi Stock. Dramaworks has made 1776Ž a fresh, painfully relevant reminder of how we want to deal with the trials before us „ with respect, compassion, compromise and conscience.

PUZZLE ANSWERS LATEST FILMS‘The BFG’ ++ Is it worth $10? NoAmong director Steven Spielbergs finer filmmaking gifts is his uncanny ability to capture the imagination of the little ones sitting in the theater. This is especially important with The BFGŽ because the film does so little to capture the imagination of adults. Yet children who attend the film, which is based on the Roald Dahl book of the same name, will find it enticing if for no other rea-son than because theres a 24-foot-tall old man helping the 10-year-old heroine at the storys center. That heroine is Sophie (Ruby Barnhill), an orphan in London who likes to read (shes fittingly working on Dickens Nicholas NicklebyŽ at the moment) and has trouble sleeping. As the story begins, shes kidnapped from her sec-ond-story dwelling by a Big Friendly Giant (the BFG) who takes her to giant country, where all the locals but him eat humans. The BFG (Mark Rylance) pledges to protect her, which is the least he can do given that he brought her there. At this point the films perspective and tone are prominent: Logically speaking, a little girl taken from her home and forced to live in a foreign land in which shes constantly in dan-ger should be horrifying. But in Mr. Spielbergs hands, theres lightness to the story that makes it all seem OK; Miss Barnhills bravado performance, coupled with Mr. Rylances gentility as the giant, also helps. You will ask: If shes in danger in giant country and the BFG wants to help, why doesnt he just take her back to London? He tries, but Sophie is such a young snapper whipperŽ (as the BFG calls her in one of the many idioms he flubs) that she insists on helping him get back at the giant bullies who pick on him. It lacks narrative thrust and the characters are under developed, but visu-ally the film is stellar. For two-thirds of the movie, Miss Barnhill is the only actor we see in true flesh and blood; the giants (played by Bill Hader, Rafe Spall and Jemaine Clement, in addition to Rylance) are rendered via motion capture, a process by which the actors motions are recorded and then a charac-ter is created using computer-generated imagery. The production design by Rick Carter, coupled with the visual effects work, creates an awe-inspiring picture that maintains its scale and never ceases to impress. If youre going to see The BFG,Ž make sure you see it in 3D. The BFGŽ isnt for adults. Its too cheesy, simple and dull to capture a mature crowd. However, it might con-nect with its target audience of those 12 and younger given the wow factor of the visuals and having a little girl as the main character. Note this, though: The children at my screening seemed engaged but occasionally confused as the story progressed (I know they were confused because they incessantly asked their parents questions) „ and confusion is never something you want in a movie meant for kids.

The inaugural exhibition, The Discover Series,Ž featured paintings and sculptures created by CCE students. Since then, doz-ens of artists living in the area have had the opportunity to show off their work in thoughtfully curated exhibitions. And, anyone familiar with the quality of art in our area will recognize that the art is top notch. In the past, if you werent a par-ent with a child or a donor or had a real reason to come into the facility for the programming that we offer, that was really the only audi-ence that weve been capturing to this point,Ž Mr. Ortiz-Smykla says. Since I came and were utilizing the gallery space on a consistent basis year-round, were hoping that cap-tures a new audience.Ž The current exhibit, Illustration: Modern Pop Art,Ž includes octogenarian car-toonist Jose Delbo, who penciled Super-man, Batman, Aquaman, Green Arrow and more for DC and Marvel Comics, Disneys cartoon classics and even The Beatles in The Yellow Submarine.Ž Mr. Delbos large paintings of several comic strips create a dramatic entrance to the show, and he has offered to donate sales of the canvases to support the CCEs edu-cational programs. The artist also is teaching a workshop for ages 15 and older on Saturday, July 16, from 1 to 3 p.m. The workshop will cover basic cartooning techniques with an emphasis on personal expression in realistic and cartoon style, as well as body proportions, how to draw figures in motion, how to interpret storytelling, and how to create superheroes. Down the gallerys hall are works that range from Fantasy to Sci-Fi artworks cre-ated by 16 younger artists, including Erika Taguchi, Pouch,Ž and the prolific artists Craig McGuiness and Amanda Valdes. She just painted murals at a festival in Korea,Ž Mr. Ortiz-Smykla says. In the far gallery are finely painted originals illustrating World of WarcraftŽ and other games. Borrowed from John Rothrock, an avid collector, the imaginative and sometimes grizzly paintings are bound to appeal to gamers. The exhibi-tion runs through July 22. Macys in The Gardens will support the CCE with a reception featuring the exhi-bition on July 8 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Guests will enjoy light bites and refreshments as we join the fusion of art and fashion to celebrate these fantastic artists,Ž says Mr. Ortiz-Smykla. Buy tickets at The upcoming season for The Gallery at CCE is a diverse one. Collaboration: African DiasporaŽ kicks off the season with an opening from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 10. A Florida Highwaymen exhibit will accompany it, along with a lecture by the Highwaymen on Oct. 1. The show runs through Oct. 22. Wild Florida,Ž a fine-art photography exhibition of images taken in Floridas wilderness by renowned photographers, is also a call to local artists. It opens on Nov. 5 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. and runs through Dec. 17. Mr. Ortiz-Smyka also is responsible for procuring sponsors for each exhibition. So far we have partnered with Titos Vodka, Black Coral Rum, Whole Foods Market, Table 427, Grilled Cheese Gallery, Malakor Thai, Due South Brewing, Civil Society Brewing, and even Pop Rocks! just to name a few,Ž he says. Prior to a several year stint as a gallerist in Northwood, he worked in the design field. He holds a Master in Landscape Architecture from Auburn University. The gallery has to fit our mission,Ž Mr. Ortiz-Smykla says. Our mission is to empower our students to grow cre-atively, educationally, socially through arts based education. Thats why I do workshops, lectures, professional prac-tice during these exhibitions, and it especially helps to utilize an artist who has work hanging in the exhibition to do something during the two months that it is up.Ž Q B12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYCREATIVEFrom page 1 The Center for Creative Education>> Where: 425 24th St., West Palm Beach. >> When: The Gallery is open (and free) to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. >> Details: A $10 donation is requested for opening receptions.

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY VINO Hong Kong tasting seminar affirms California wines tops in the U.S.Its probably no surprise that over 90 percent of the wine made in the U.S. comes from California. And the 4,400 California wineries make it the fourth largest producer of wine in the world after Italy, France and Spain. That doesnt mean other states dont make great wine. Some of our favorite cab-ernets and syrahs come from Washington State, and incredible pinot noirs come from Oregon. Weve sampled some surprisingly good wines from Virginia. But in terms of sheer volume, the Golden State tops the list. And not all the great wines come from Napa and Sonoma. Other regions, like Paso Robles, the Santa Cruz Mountains and Santa Barbara are producing terrific whites and reds in all price and quality ranges. As if I needed to be convinced, a recent tasting seminar at VinExpo in Hong Kong reinforced what I already knew, in the most delicious way. The California Style!Ž tasting session, directed by four women who are prominent in the wine industry, was as entertaining as it was informative. And we all got a free pair of sunglasses. Speaking were Master of Wine Debra Meiburg, author Karen MacNeil, chairman of the Institute of Masters of Wine Sara Jane Evans and host of the TV series New American CuisineŽ Sarah Kemp. There was another dimension at work, as well. It has long been debated whether women taste and perceive wine differently than men, as French wine critic Isabel Fort maintains. Shes the author of several wine guides aimed specifically at female wine lovers. So it was interesting to hear the four women on the panel offer their evaluations of the 16 California wines we sampled. The samplings came from all parts of the state. The good news is most of the wines are readily available locally. They are a bit in the splurge category, but highly recommended. Au Bon Climat Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard 2012 „ This is a well-known vineyard, and many winemakers use these grapes in their products. Au Bon Climats Jim Clendenen takes a very technical approach to his winemaking, and this example offers lemon and lime notes with old world flavors of apple and vanilla. $35. Mondavi Fum Blanc To Kalon Vineyard 2013 „ In the 1960s Robert Mondavi put California Sauvignon Blanc on the map, along with the rest of Californias wines. And the To Kalon vineyard is another one of those blessed pieces of ground where grapes grow their best. This wine offers classic grapefruit and lemon blossom flavors, along with cantaloupe and guava. $50. Heitz Marthas Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 „ One of the best known premium cabernets from Napa Valley, the grapes from this vineyard are known for offering a tantalizing faint mint flavor, along with classic cassis, cigar box and spice. Get a bottle for your birthday. $190. Shafer Syrah RelentlessŽ 2012 „ This was my wine of the day. Its 89 percent syrah and the rest petite sirah with jazzy dark flavors of plum, chocolate, smoke and black-berry. The finish goes on forever. Buy it now and open it in about five years. $85.Ask the Wine Whisperer Q. How important is the vintage in a wine?„ Don S., Bonita SpringsA. The quality of a particular vintage depends on the region the wine comes from. There are no vintage years that are great in every locale, though critics generally agree on good years from the most famous wine-growing regions, like Bordeaux and Burgun-dy. Most wines in the under $50 range are made to achieve a consistent style from year to year. Hot vintages produce wines that are fruity and high in alcohol, while cooler years generally produce lighter-bodied wines with a bit more acidity. Q „ Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer. He is creative director of Greenfield Advertising Group.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15The Dish: The Fried Chicken Sandwich The Place: The Alchemist Gastropub & Bar, 223 Clematis St., West Palm Beach; 355-0691 or The Price: $14 The Details: This is how fried chicken is supposed to taste „ crispy on the outside, courtesy of hot, fresh grease, with no floury aftertaste, and tender juiciness on the inside, thanks to all of the aforementioned. I call it perfection on a roll „ toasted sourdough, to be exact. At The Alchemist, they garnish it with pickled hot peppers, which brought a pleasant burn, and a spicy remoulade. I could have opted for fries on the side, but that would have been too much of a good thing. The chilled, crisp mixed green salad, dressed with tangy lemon vinaigrette, offered nice counterpoint. For what its worth, service also was excellent, with efficient, knowledgeable help from wait and bus staff. Q „ Sc ott Simmons Just as their c ontrasting regions define the cuisines of Italy and China, Sam San-chez insists Mexican cuisine follows suit „ which is why his Banko Cantina spe-cializes in dishes inspired by the cooking he grew up on in Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Our food is more from the northern part of Mexicos desert terrain, where youll find cattle ranches and meat-based dishes,Ž Mr. Sanchez said. So were bringing that area to West Palm Beach.Ž He said northern Mexicos ranching culture features wood fire and outdoor cooking, which contribute to the dis-tinct, smoky flavors that serve as the foundation of Banko Cantinas list of tacos, steak and mesquite-grilled s kewers. Mr. Sanchez has been active in the restaurant business for 28 of his 53 years, starting out as a busboy washing dishes in his uncles English pub in Chicago. I was 25 and I needed a job,Ž he laughed. This is the only industry I know of, where you can start out at an entry level position and work your way up to the top. I started out as a busboy and rose through the ranks to server, bartender, manager, general manager, then owner. This industry is very kind to hard-working people.Ž Looking to spread his wings, Mr. Sanchez learned several years ago about the American National Bank building in West Palm Beach „ a 1921 landmark that was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1997. He secured the building and turned it into a three-level, 13,000-square-foot restaurant that includes a rooftop bar, lounge, private dining space and 130 seats in the main dining room. The interior retains ele-ments of the historic building, including the original wood „ used for tabletops „ as well as the chandeliers and tiles. The restaurants second floor was designed for special events, including corporate affairs and private parties. The 3,000-square-foot third floor boasts a partially covered rooftop and a 90-foot bar in the center with a 14-foot ceiling, seating for 150 and a kitchen serving lunch and dinner from a select menu. An extensive menu, overseen by Corporate Chef Manuel Briseno, includes the Bistec a la Tampiquea ($28) „ a grilled 6-ounce skirt steak, four ovenroasted chicken enchiladas, Spanish rice, beans, lettuce, tomatoes, corn tortillas and tomatillo salsa. The mesquite grilled skewers, a specialty of northern Mexico, include carne asada ($14), camarones con Tocino ($12), Camarones al Mojo de Ajo ($12), pollo asado ($11), and veg-etales ($10). The restaurant uses tortillas imported from the northern region of Mexico and incorporates locally grown and harvested produce and fish as well, varying with seasons. When hes away from his restaurant, Mr. Sanchez likes to keep it Mexican at home. I like Mexican stews and soups,Ž he confessed. I also like to make steaks with special sauces and peppers.Ž Although Banko Cantina specializes in northern Mexican dishes, Mr. Sanchez said his restaurant would give a nod to other regions of Mexico over the coming months. Starting in November, well bring in guest chefs from all over Mexico „ Chi-apas, Tamaulipas, Mexico City, Jalisco „ to give our customers samplings of what they offer for a month,Ž he said. They will cook up samples of the specialties of their regions and each week well feature a threeor four-course meal.Ž Sam SanchezAge: 53 Original Hometown: Born in Chicago, grew up in Nuevo Leon, Mexico Restaurant: Banko Cantina, 114 S. Olive Ave., West Palm Beach; 355-1399; Mission: To bring a taste of my region of Mexico to West Palm Beach.Ž Cuisine: Northern Mexican Training: No formal training, but spent 28 years working at every level of the industry. What advice would you give someone who wants to be a restaurateur? Never stop working at it. Its a hard job, a 24/7 job. But if you showcase your tal-ent, someone will recognize your ability and reward you for it.Ž Q In the kitchen with...SAM SANCHEZ, owner of Banko Cantina, West Palm Beach BY STEVEN J.

Call 561.904.6470 or visit us on the web at BY KELLY MERRITTkmerritt@” International travel has made Earth a very small place, especially for those who can afford to hop a flight to any-where they choose. But veteran trav-elers know theres nothing like flying private to exotic lands. Even better is a private plane to historic destinations that feature ancient architecture. Just announced, for October, you and 15 of your friends can hop a private jet for a tour of Asia. This excursion is through China, Bhutan, India and Sri Lanka and is presented by Remote Lands and Aman Resorts. Guests trav-eling on the tour will stay at eight Aman resorts, architectural wonders in themselves known for ber luxe accommodations and culinary experi-ences. Away from Aman Resorts, old colonial architecture abounds. Passengers will travel on two Gulfstream G200 private jets. Lodging at the eight Aman properties includes Beijing, Lijiang, Thimphu, Paro, Ranth-ambhore, Galle and Tangalle. Some of the highlights of the 18-day trip „ aside from being able to bypass the general public and never ending security lines „ include visiting off-limits areas of Beijings Forbidden City and a Royal Bengal Tiger safari in Ranthambore National Park. Fitness buffs will enjoy yoga in the ancient city ruins of Bhan-garh in Rajasthan and hikers will get to see Bhutans cliffside Tigers Nest temple and explore the historic Galle fort built in 1588 by the Portuguese. As if the private jets and celebrity chefs werent enough, each of the eight twosomes on the trip will have their own private car and driver, guiding each on personalized and customizable itineraries. After excursions, the group will come together to break bread and fellowship with the intelligentsia of Bhutan, famous Sri Lankan artists and designers against the backdrop of Jaipur royal family residence, the City Palace, the sands of southern Sri Lanka, among other places. The five-star Aman properties selected for this special trip are the Aman at Summer Palace in Beijing; Amandayan Resort in Lijiang; Amankora in Thim-phu; Amankora in Paro; Amanbagh in Alwar, Rajasthan; Aman-i-Khs in Ran-thambhore National Park; UNESCO World Heritage Site Amangalla in Galle and Amanwella in Tangalle. The cost for the private jet journey, Oct. 9-26, is $63,888 per person based on double occupancy. Cost for a single supplement is $23,000. Booking is lim-ited to 16 guests.

4 LUXE LIVING JULY 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLYCOVER STORY “We have a lot of clients whose parents shopped with us at one of our 16 stores we had all over the country, and that is very gratifying because we are no longer the sleepy backwater under the palm trees.” — Nelson Hammell, Devonshire Home and Garden Antiques BY KELLY MERRITTkmerritt@” oridaweekly.comThere is a wanderers spirit behind the eclectic vibe of Devonshire Home and Garden Antiques. And the Devonshire story keeps evolving, thanks to the passion of owners Nelson Hammell and Pete Hawkins. The store, named for a friendship with the late duchess of Devonshire, began in 1985 in Middleburg, Va. It has become the kind of place bestselling authors mention in their novels and where shoppers come to find something they cant find any-where else. I just returned from Portugal and am back for a couple of weeks before going to Bali for the summer to look for unique items for the new space,Ž said Mr. Hammell, who for 20 years spent summers at his small Vermont farm. As much as I loved every bit of that time in Vermont, I wanted to see the world. So I have been traveling a lot this last six months.Ž Travel has been the cornerstone of inspirational buying for Mr. Ham-mell, who says the new space they are adding will have more of a look thats indicative of the places he has been and include some new things for Florida. For Mr. Hammell and Mr. Hawkins, the store has always been about creating experiences, but the new store will be a little bit of a departure. I hadnt been to Portugal in 35 years, but since my love of using tile to create tile tables and tile mirrors, I wanted to revisit the long established hot spot for tile production,Ž said Mr. Hammell, who toured tile factories LY M ER RI TT Devonshire Home and Garden Antiques owners Nelson Hammell (above) and Pete Hawkins bring an international flair to their store.

He hopes to buy foun-tains and benches in the mountain vil-lages. The owners have a long history of supporting local artisans. Pete and I used to buy in Morocco 15 years ago and these new young Moroc-can and French (artisans) were teenag-ers when we were buying back then,Ž he said. Theyve all grown up.Now, what is wonderful is that they are creating things of their own and putting a modern twist on things we really respond to,Ž he said. Recently Ive found all kinds of things that felt very undiscovered in Florida, including lighting and tables and terrace furniture we like a lot that are not quite as tradi-tional and not quite as predictable.Ž Mr. Hammell said those products have inspired his next course, a new store that will double the space. The new store will be right next door to what we have now, where we have been for 10 years after moving from Worth Avenue, so that gives us another 5,000 square feet,Ž he said of the area that has become a design hub in West Palm Beach. Devonshire once rubbed shoulders with Chanel and Gucci. Now, its near the marble and sheet metal fabricators and furniture makers that serve the design industry. Its a nittier and grittier scene and that fits our mood for the moment „ even the most die-hard lady shoppers have all found their way over to the warehouse,Žhe said. The two shops will have their own identities so Mr. Hammell hopes they will give shoppers another reason to come to Georgia Avenue and to come to Devonshire. Perhaps the most satisfying for the Devonshire owners is the generational shopper who meanders into Devon-shire. Nothing marks the passage of 35 years in business like the next frontier of clients children and grandchildren. We have a lot of clients whose parents shopped with us at one of our 16 stores we had all over the country, and that is very gratifying because we are no longer the sleepy backwater under the palm trees,Ž said Mr. Hammell. We have really enjoyed seeing where this train will go.Ž With their roots in English garden furnishings, the Devonshire owners have been to a lot of antiques shows and made many trips to London and New York to buy classics, and by contrast showcased a vessel from Turkey or a Modernist sculpture from France „ its never boring. Good, old stuff still commands interest and prices, so we are very thank-ful for that, plus its fun to be part of the surge of interest in for example, pottery that comes from Vietnam and Thailand with strong colors and glazed pieces,Ž Mr. Hammell said. Another rise is things being made in fiberglass and resins great in Florida for lightweight condo terraces without concern for weight issues.

8 LUXE LIVING JULY 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLY That about covers itHow the upholstery masters at Barbara Bay breathe new life into old pieces BY KELLY MERRITTkmerritt@” oridaweekly.comWhen Art and Barbara Sturgeon moved to Florida more than 20 years ago, it was after considering a move at the urging of friends. The resulting business of transform-ing beloved pieces of furniture through the magic of upholstery is one the couple cherishes. The joy and enthusiasm is evident in their cli-ents faces as they rediscover old pieces made new again. Our decision to come to Florida was made for us by the snow and ice storm of 1994, when our business was shut down for a week that January „ we arrived here that same April,Ž said Mrs. Sturgeon, a New Jersey native whose husband is a master upholsterer and graduate of the New York School of Design. Between his 45 years of experience in upholstery and fabrication of custom furniture and her 25 years of expertise in textiles, interior decor and project management, they can guide designers and consumers through the process of renewing furniture. To upholster or not to upholster: How do clients know if something is worth reupholstering or if they should buy new? Mrs. Sturgeon says that is the most common question asked by retail clients. We make every attempt to answer honestly and if the furniture is of high quality and timeless in design, then, yes, by all means, reupholster,Ž she said. Any makeover has its trials. A master bedroom that requires privacy but is next to the kids room, a kitchen that needs new countertops but is limited on space, or even adding an in-law suite, all come with unique set of challenges. Renewing furniture can be complicated, too, but thats where the Sturgeons work their magic. Reupholstery is a labor-intensive process in which fabric must be care-fully removed to serve as a pattern for new fabric and every single staple must be removed from the frame,Ž she said. Then we can determine if the frame is sturdy and not showing any brittle or dry rot in wood, if there are cracks in the frame itself, which we can remedy by gluing and clamping, and in the case of carved, exposed wood antique pieces, if there are missing or chipped wood that can be replicated by the master res-toration firm we use.Ž Mrs. Sturgeon said the next step is to evaluate the cushions. Are the cushions down and feather, and do they just need more feathers added to plump them?Ž she said. All of these aspects are discussed with client before any actual work is performed.Ž This is as important to the client as to the upholsterers to arrive at an accurate price that includes the entire project. Can a client use just any fabric to reupholster a piece of furniture? Sometimes, that answer is no.Fabric selection is a major part of the process because not all fabrics lend themselves to upholstery „ for exam-ple, linen, as exquisite as it is, will wrinkle because it is a natural fiber that when folded or creased actually breaks and no amount of steaming or press-ing gets those broken fibers to relax, so linen and silk should only be used on small pieces where fabric is drawn tight,Ž she said. Fabric repeat is how many times a pattern repeats itself com-ing off the roll and the larger the repeat, the more fabric is required.Ž Mrs. Sturgeon said pattern match is an art by an experienced upholsterer who can then determine the yardage required „ leading to yet another of her favorite questions: Can the fabric be railroaded? That means running it sideways off the roll, which eliminates the undesir-able seams, and only solids or non-directional patterns meet this criteria,Ž she said of the process, adding that projects from designers are especially desirable. We welcome visitors to our workroom at various stages of work DESIGN MAKEOVER BY k m CUSTOM DECORATING WORKROOM Est. 1994 (561) 840-3445 | 1334 S Killian Drive, Suite # 3, Lake Park, FL 33403 Œ=8074;<-:AŒ+=;<75.=:61<=:-Œ7=<,77:+=;0176; NŽLZFZWŽZWNZqWWTTWb2WpŽFWbŽWŽW2ŽFL W1HW__$WWU$4U_†4†T†

10 LUXE LIVING JULY 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLYDESIGNER Q&A A s a leading source of French and Italian garden antiques and furnishings, Authentic Provence Garden Antiques has long been the secret garden of choice for home-owners trying to create magical spaces. The companys new endeavor with Gus-tavian and midcentury modern furni-ture is opposite the Authentic Provence Garden Antiques store on South Dixie Highway. Owner Susan Hofherr loves nothing more than to share her appreciation of fine things with her clients. With the new store, she has a new avenue to do so. We asked the enterprising citizen of the world how she helps clients achieve their signature look and what they can expect at the new digs. How do you define luxury and can you recall the most over-the-top space that inspired you? To me, luxury is defined as living in an antique space and restoring it with respect, leaving it pure and simple. I remember best a beautiful 14th century Tuscan villa close to Florence, Italy, left almost in its original state. Part of defin-ing luxury is leaving something in its entity rather than radically changing it. Our hearts are always bleeding when we see a beautiful old house torn down. Can choosing large architectural elements like doors and gates become a challenge for homeown-ers who dont have much experience making those large scale selections? We always suggest different objects for our clients and let then decide, but we also work with architects and design-ers, too. If a homeowner is using antique building materials, we recommend they start looking for them before the archi-tectural plans are completed. This will allow these pieces to be implemented. These items can include entrance doors, door and window casings in stone and gates. But people do not need to have a large space to decorate with our prod-Authentic Provence grows garden store into design destination


FLORIDA WEEKLY JULY 2016 LUXE LIVING 11 DESIGNER Q&A ucts. We offer also items for smaller exterior and interior spaces. Youve opened a new store. Why add to what already works so well? We saw a big demand for the interior antiques we offer in the new store, midcentury fine furniture. My husband is from Vienna, and between us we speak six languages „ when you speak the language, dealing with international vendors allows for a different access. He was an art historian working for auction houses all over the world and I come from fashion in Milan, so we recognize trends quickly and wanted to bring these items to our customers. Plus, to tell you the truth, we are very restless people. That is part of what drives us to do new things. What can customers expect when they walk into your stores? We have a story to tell and when clients come here, they are transported to France and Italy. Everything is authentic and real, but there is a calmness, too „ our clients often compliment us on the scents we carry. Choosing unique flooring can be a challenging task. What do you sug-gest for homeowners embarking on new home construction? Some of our favorites are beautiful limestone and wooden floorings from France.
