Malek, MDMedical Director, SMMC Comprehensive Stroke Center8 Years leslie LILLYllilly@floridaweekly.com COMMENTARYBreaking the glass ceilingIn mid-July, 168 years ago, a convention was held in Seneca Falls, a quiet hamlet in the Finger Lakes District of New York. The Wesleyan Chapel served as the site of the meeting. It took place over a two-day period. Some 200 women attended, and some men, too, including the former slave, abolitionist, orator and luminary Frederick Douglass. It was an exciting gathering for so small a town and its purpose was con-troversial. It was the first convention on womens rights ever held in the country. Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott, joined by two of their abolitionist sisters, issued the invitation, calling for women to come together to discuss the social, civil, and religious condition and rights of women.Ž It was a public meeting, for women only on the first day; on the second day, men were invited to join the proceed-ings. Dividing participation by gender was a bold move for the women to make, but men had been accustomed to dictating such rules from the time Adam first took a bite of Eves apple. Ultimately, as a practical matter, the womens preferences were soon aban-doned. From the start, the conven-tion was a coeducational experience. However, neither the inclusion of men nor their habit of superiority derailed the focal point of the gathering. It was about women, for women and led by women. Back then, Seneca Falls was smaller than the village it is today; and not the place one would expect the seeds of a revolution to be sown. It was a rural backwater in lake country and con-nected by waterways to the Erie Canal. Some say the historical community is the realŽ Bedford Falls, the fictional town depicted in the 1946 film classic, Its a Wonderful Life.Ž Yet it earned its place in history because life in 1848 was anything but wonderful for women. The grievances and injustices women suffered in that era were many. Mott and Stanton cataloged them all as they fought to participate as equal partners with men in the abolitionist movement. The final straw was the bar against women speaking at the 1840 World Anti-Slavery Convention in London. They returned to New York resolved one day to challenge the inequities they and other women routinely suffered because of the accidentŽ of their birth. New York was a fortuitous choice for the convention. As in other states, mar-ried women in New York had no prop-erty rights. Just prior to the convention, the states Constitution was amended by the state Legislature to correct the injustice. For the first time, a principle of governance was established in sup-port of womens equity. It grew from a smoldering ember into a blazing fire at Seneca Falls. In anticipation of this inaugural event, its leaders struggled to prepare an opening statement, a Declaration of SentimentsŽ that stated their griev-ances and articulated, with passion and intelligence, their resolve. They seized upon the Declaration of 1776 as their model for drafting the conventions presiding document. It described the oft repeated injuries, usurpations and absolute tyrannyŽ women experience at the hands of men, including the sub-jugation of women to laws they played no role in making because they were denied the right to vote. The declaration, resolutions and discussions that followed were, in 21st-cen-tury parlance, the bomb. The nation had never heard anything like it. The con-ventions Declaration of SentimentsŽ was enthusiastically adopted with few amendments, Only one resolution of all those proposed failed to pass with a unanimous vote: the resolution to secure women the right to vote. Those against it argued it was too radical. They said its inclusion would put at risk all the other declara-tion of rights the women thought more rationally defended. Their first priority was equal participation of women with men in the pulpit, universities, profes-sions, trades and halls of commerce. It might have ended there but for Mrs. Stanton and Mr. Douglass. They convinced the doubtful that the power to choose rulers and make laws, was the right by which all others could be secured.Ž The amendment passed by a small majority.Two weeks later, women met to organize a second convention in Rochester. The women agreed electing a president and officers would expedite business. They hesitated, bemoaning womens lack of experience in parliamentary proce-dures and public speaking, especially doubtful a woman could preside as presi-dent. Even Mrs. Mott and Mrs. Stanton stoutly opposed the idea, and deemed electing a woman president of the con-vention a most hazardous experimentƒŽ The discussion almost collapsed. Then two women quietly suggested if women could reso lve, declare, discuss and debate, by the same power, women could preside. The question was settled. They chose a woman as their conven-tion president. Last month, for the first time in our nations history, a major political party elected a woman as its nominee for the president of the United States. It just proves, if women want to achieve equal-ity for their gender, they have to start somewhere. Q „ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 11-17, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY OPINIONTrump’s formula is nothing new In a period of two weeks or so, Donald Trump did these things: invited Vladi-mir Putin to engage in cyber espionage against the United States; said he has no relationship with Mr. Putin, although he has bragged to the contrary in the recent past; insinuated once again that Ted Cruzs father played a role in the assassination of John Kennedy; insult-ed and demeaned a grieving Gold Star mother and said her husband had no rightŽ to rebuke him; argued that he had sacrificedŽ for his country (along the lines of military personnel and their families) by amassing a personal fortune, a large chunk of which was earnedŽ by manipulating bankruptcy laws which allowed him to stiff legions of mom-and-pop vendors and contractors; accused local fire marshals in Colorado and Ohio of conspiring against him because they enforced occupancy codes at his cam-paign events; revealed that he did not know the Russians are entrenched on the Crimean Peninsula; called Hillary Clin-ton the devilŽ; suggested that women who are sexually harassed in the work-place should simply seek employment elsewhere; bragged incessantly about his wealth while simultaneously refusing to release his tax returns; and bizarrely announced that he had long coveted a Purple Heart decoration, although he never served a day in the military „ thereby reducing this solemn award to something akin to a Cub Scout patch. OK, is there anything else? Oh yeah, for good measure this nattering nabob of narcissism had a crying infant ejected from one of his rallies (Get that baby out of here!Ž). Other can-didates kiss babies; Donald Trump gives them the heave-ho. This is the sort of raw power, shabby manners, political incor-rectness and decisive action that sends Trumpites into a lobotomized swoon. And to be fair, lets give the bellowing bil-lionaire his due. This baby bashing sends a powerful message to tiny despots and dictators around the globe, who must be quaking in their diapers. There are many remarkable aspects to the Trump phenomenon, but the most puzzling is the widespread belief held by his hardcore supporters that he is a man of strength who tells it like it isŽ and is not afraid to let the chips fall where they may. Nothing could be further from the truth. All we have seen confirms that Mr. Trump is a bully, and a whiner „ someone who can dish it out but cannot take it in return. He wallows in victimhood. The system is rigged against him, the news media (Fox News Chan-nel excepted, for the time being) distort his statements and positions, peo-ple like the mother and father of the fallen American Muslim soldier say viciousŽ things and unfairly pick on him, he cant get a fair hearing, the fall debate schedule is weighted in Ms. Clintons favor, yada yada. No perceived slight is too insignifi-cant to be ignored. For Mr. Trump, it is not enough to say that his opponents are merely wrong or misguided. They must be demonized and silenced. Along those lines, he wants to change the laws of libel so that public figures and elected officials can more easily sue those who dare to critique and criticize. He routinely „ and ludicrously „ charges that Ms. Clinton wants to repeal the Second Amendment, that she wants to take away our guns. Mr. Trump is a far more serious threat to the First Amendment than Ms. Clinton is to the Second. So diffuse is Mr. Trump in his demagoguery that it is hard to single out in what area he poses the greatest threat. But this weird bromance he has with Mr. Putin „ and with authoritarian lead-ers in general (check out his statements on Recep Erdogan, Turkeys strongman president) „ is a cause for lost sleep. Not only does Mr. Trump invite the former KGB thug to meddle in the affairs of the United States, he refuses to con-demn him for little things like murdering journalists and political opponents. At least hes a leader,Ž Mr. Trump has said of Mr. Putin. I think our country does plenty of killing also.Ž Mr. Trumps formula of appealing to the base emotions of the electorate is nothing new. Politicians have used coded phrases and dog-whistle slogans for generations. In many ways, Mr. Trump is the lineal descendant of the late George Wallace, the racebaiting Alabama governor who as a presidential candidate in 1968 carried five Deep South states and won 46 elec-toral votes. All I have to do is talk about states rights,Ž Mr. Wallace once confided to a friend. Im sayin states rights but the folks who are listening are hearin nigger. Ž And so it is with Mr. Trump. He talks of banning immigrants, of keeping our southern border secure and of restoring law and order.Ž You dont have to be a genius to know what he is really saying. George Wallace taught us that. In Robert Penn Warrens All the Kings Men,Ž a political advisor to Willie Stark „ the backwoods Iago who stands at the heart of the novel „ perfectly dis-tilled Mr. Trumps political strategy. Willie, make em cry, make em laugh, make em mad, even mad at you. Stir them up and theyll love it and come back for more, but, for heavens sakes, dont try to improve their minds.Ž Q bill CORNWELLbcornwell@floridaweekly.com t ay t l f t th e y. I t pl f wa Trump vs. the KhansDonald Trump got sound advice the other day. At a rally at Davenport, Iowa, he told the crowd that a prominent sup-porter had called and urged him not to sweat all the attacks at the Democratic National Convention. Dont hit down,Ž the supporter urged, according to Trump. You have one person to beat. Its Hillary Clinton.Ž By Trumps account, he conceded the good sense of this, although he noted how he always prefers hitting back „ it makes me feel good.Ž If so, he must have enjoyed his weekend. He spent it attacking not just Khizr Khan, the Muslim father of a soldier killed in Iraq who spoke at the DNC, but his wife. In other words, roughly 48 hours after publicly sharing the advice he had gotten not to punch down, Trump delivered a flurry of downward blows the likes of which we havent seen from a presidential candidate in memory. The old political and media rule is unassailable. When you are the bigger, more famous figure, you only draw more attention to a less prominent critic by engaging. If people hadnt heard, or heard about, Khans short speech against Trump at the DNC before, they probably have now. In its unadorned righteous indignation, the Khan DNC speech was a sting-ing rebuke of Trump „ Khan suggested the Republican candidate hasnt read the Constitution, nor ever sacrificed anything for the country „ and the mogul duly acted stung. His first swipe was at Khans wife, Ghazala, for standing silently at her hus-bands side during the speech (perhaps, Trump implied, she was forbidden from speaking as a woman?). In subsequently trying to tamp down the controversy, Trump stoked it further by saying Khizr Khan had no rightŽ to criticize him as he had and complaining about his viciousness. The Trump response predictably fueled an all-out media blitz by the Khans. It validated one of the main lines of criticism of Trump at the DNC „ that he is so thin-skinned, he cant be entrusted with the awesome powers of the presidency. And his religiously fraught slap at Khans wife and his rhe-torical manhandling of a family who had sacrificed so much for the country reinforced the sense that he refuses to honor basic political norms. Its not that grief validates a particular point of view, or someone who has suffered a terrible loss should be above criticism. But the grieving mother or father deserves an extra measure of respect. This isnt just Politics 101, but Decency 101. It is one thing to beat Ted Cruz and his family about the head and shoulders „ hes just another pol „ but something else entirely to do it to the parents of an exemplary young man who sacrificed his life protecting others in Iraq. Trump believes, from his decades in the public eye in the media capital of the world, that it always pays to be on the attack. This isnt true anymore. The question no longer is whether he can garner headlines, but whether he can demonstrate his suitability to becom-ing commander in chief. The only one hes hurt by his assault on the Khans is himself.

Thats bad news for pets and people with little protection from the heat: those who live on the streets or have little income for frills such as air conditioning, and seniors, who may have difficulty caring for pets at the best of times, let alone when temperatures soar into triple digits. Heat can be a big challenge, especially in urban areas, says Lori Weise, founder of Downtown Dog Rescue in Los Angeles. A person might be able to go inside a building thats air conditioned, but theyre not going to be able to bring their dog or cat inside.Ž If youve ever seen a homeless person with a dog or cat, you may have wondered if they have any special needs, especially when its hot out. Or maybe you have a neighbor or friend whos a senior citizen and are concerned about how theyre far-ing. Its not always easy to know how to help, but there are some simple, kind ways at all expense levels that you can contrib-ute to their well-being. You may see homeless people with pets regularly as you walk city streets. Keeping a bottle of water on hand to give away is a generous gesture that doesnt cost much or take much time. Including a silicone col-lapsible pet bowl is a nice touch; theyre available in sets of five for less than $12. Cooling bandanas for any size pet and cooling vests for small pets are available for less than $10. Carry a couple with you to give away. Ask what they need. If a grocery store or pet supply store is on your way, offer to buy some water they can share or a bag of food for the pet. Share information about programs that can help. In Los Angeles, DDR offers a weekly opportunity for shelter and aid. We invite anybody living in the Skid Row community to come in to the Inner City Law Center on Wednesdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.,Ž Ms. Weise says. Pets are welcome, and we have water and granola bars and pretty comprehensive services for cats and dogs: food, collars, leashes, crates, pretty much any supply they need, includ-ing a buggy for older or small dogs.Ž Its not just homeless people who need help. Families who are struggling because of unemployment or health issues may need help with pet care. Others may simply be inexperienced pet owners who dont recognize that their animals need better shelter, shade or flea treatment. Options for shelter include looking on Craigslist for a gently used plastic dog-house that you can offer. Its also a good resource for a childs pool that the dog can splash in. Home Depot sells shade cloths, and theyre inexpensive „ about $39,Ž Ms. Weise says. You could string one of those up in a backyard and instantly have some shade for the dog.Ž Sometimes people dont know about advances in flea treatment. People who havent had a dog since childhood may think its normal for dogs to have fleas. Casually suggest your favorite flea-control product, Ms. Weise suggests.Check in with senior neighbors to see if they need help walking their dog. They may have health conditions that make it unwise or difficult for them to go out in the heat. Be kind.I think people get weird about doing things like that,Ž Ms. Weise says. But you can offer in a way thats not insulting or trying to teach the person a lesson, just saying, I would love the honor of treating you to this.Ž Q Pets of the Week>> Pip a 1.5-year-old, 13-pound male mixed breed dog, is a fun-loving rambunctious boy who has plenty of love to give. >> Easy a 6-year-old male domestic shorthair cat, is a very calm and well-mannered feline who also happens to be quite affectionate.To adopt or foster a petThe Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, Humane Society of the Palm Beaches is at 3100/3200 Military Trail in West Palm Beach.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 11-17, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY mercials. Then there are the three other amendments, the no-brainers. Theyre tax breaks and credits that have received overwhelming support. Theyre hard to argue against and almost assured passage. Amendment 3 gives first responders who have been disabled a property tax exemption. Amendment 5 allows seniors to keep their property values fixed in order to protect them from tax increases. Amendment 4, which will appear on the primary ballot Aug. 30, grants tax credits for solar and other alternative energy devices. The amendment would exempt solar equipment from tangible personal property taxes and extend tax benefits for businesses installing solar equipment. It would exempt real estate taxes on solar devices so that the value of the solar equipment would not count toward the assessed value of your property. Recently, a political action committee called Stop Playing Favorites came out in opposition to Amendment 4, arguing that it favors the special interests of the solar power industry. Still, the measure has received broad support from conservatives and progressives. It was brought to the ballot by Republi-cans and Democrats and both the House and Senate voted unanimously to approve it. The broad sup-port it received „ a super-super majority of more than 75 per-cent „ qualified the amendment to appear earlier on the ballot, separating it from the more controversial solar power measure that voters will con-sider in November. I think everyone saw the wisdom of having it in the primary ballot so it wouldnt be on the ballot with the other solar amendments and have the public confused,Ž said Rep. Ray Rodrigues of Fort Myers, one of the amendments sponsors. Florida voters can amend the states constitution by passing an amendment with 60 percent of the vote. Initiative petitions, such as Amendments 1 and 2 on solar and marijuana, currently require 689,149 sig-natures to get on the ballot. Other amend-ments, such as the tax breaks for seniors, are referred and approved by the legislature without a citizen signature process.Amendment 1: Solar status quo Amendment 1 puts into law the way that residential solar has been operat-ing for years in Florida. It was created as a response to another proposal backed by environmentalists and the solar panel industry that could have dramatically changed the business model for how Flo-ridians get their energy. What is on the ballot in November, however, codifies the status quo. Currently, consumers with solar panels sell their elec-tricity back to the utility companies at a set rate. Its fairly simple,Ž says Jim Kallinger of Consumers for Smart Solar, a group funded by the utility compa-nies to push for the amendment. (The amendment) guarantees a framework of rights for consumers to own their solar equipment, but it ensures that govern-ment can protect the health and welfare of those who use solar.Ž The measure made it onto the ballot only after the Florida Supreme Court approved it by a 4-3 vote. In her dis-sent, Justice Barbara Pariente called out the amendment as masquerading as pro-solar.Ž She wrote: This proposed consti-tutional amendment, supported by some of Floridas major investor-owned elec-tric utility companies, actually seeks to constitutionalize the status quo. The bal-lot title is ƒ misleading by its focus on Solar Energy Choice, when no real choice exists for those who favor expansion of solar energy.Ž The group that opposed the measure that appears on the ballot, Florid-ians for Solar Choice, had argued before the court that the amendment was misleading and that it actually reduces options for consum-ers. They call themselves Consumers for Smart Solar, its deceptive from the get-go. Everything about it is a lie. Its the utilities hiding behind supposed consumers,Ž says Sean Gallagher, vice president for state affairs for the Solar Energy Industries Associa-tion. The status quo keeps the third-party leasing companies out of Florida. It pro-hibits a low-cost way for customers to go solar.Ž The solar amendment that didnt make the ballot would have allowed third-party leasing companies called PPAs to enter the Florida marketplace. The companies lease and install solar arrays to homeown-ers, significantly reducing the up-front costs of converting a home or business to renewable energy. Floridas major public utilities are publically traded, for-profit companies that are allowed to monopolize the energy market in exchange for letting the PSC regulate them and providing reliable ser-vice for all of the states residents via the grid. Companies that sell PPAs would change the electric business model. Resi-dents could potentially sell electricity to their neighbors, cutting out the utilities altogether in some transactions. Furthermore, a national exchange of renewable energy credits called Solar Renewable Energy Certificates would be in the hands of the third-party companies, not the utili-ties. A shift to this business model could see utilities paying the third-party compa-nies for credits. The amendment thats on the ballot circumvents any major shifts in Floridas solar marketplace. I dont see how (Amendment 1) has an impact to increase or decrease solar. Its an establishment of the status quo. Long-term, I think it will help, because it will ensure the grid is around, which is nec-essary,Ž said Rep. Rodrigues. By putting what we have into place it will ensure the sustainability of the grid so that we can have power into the future.ŽAmendment 2: Medical marijuana redux Youve heard this story before. Famous Orlando-based trial attorney John Mor-gan has poured millions in money and put his face behind a campaign to legalize medical marijuana. The political action committee called United for Care, funded in large part by Mr. Morgan, put the mea-sure on the ballot in 2014, where it failed by a slim margin, garnering almost 58 percent of the 60 percent of votes needed to pass. This time around, the odds look better for the amendment. Almost every poll shows support at well over the 60 percent threshold. In 2014, State Attorney General Pam Bondi took the amendment before the state Supreme Court, arguing that it misled the public about its true intent. No such challenge appears to be happening this time around. The amendments defeat two years ago may be the key to its success this time. Language that was ambiguous in 2014 has been tightened up, helping the mea-sure garner endorsements from editorial boards at news-papers throughout the state and thwart some of the attacks that were launched against it before. They were far more organized at this point last time,Ž Ben Pollara, the campaign man-ager for United for Care, says of the opposition. There was this argument against it that this was marijuana that you can get for anything. They would say, You can get (marijuana) for a hangnail. With the new definition, thats an even more ridiculous argument than it was two years ago.Ž Language was changed to ensure that marijuana could only be prescribed for debilitating medical conditions such as cancer, AIDS, epilepsy, Crohns disease and similar ailments. Other wording that is now included strengthens provisions for keeping marijuana prescriptions away from minors without parental consent and caregivers who administer marijuana will be required to pass background checks. Medical decisions should be made between doctors and their patients and not the government,Ž said Mr. Pollara. (Marijuana) is safer than most things youll find in your medicine cabinet. If your doctor says it will help you, you should be able to follow your doctors orders without going to jail.Ž Sean Viceroy has spent the past year living away from his wife in Fort Myers so that he can have access to medical marijuana in California. He fills prescrip-tions for both her and himself, then mails the marijuana illegally to her in South-west Florida. (Mr. Viceroys name has been changed for this report.) His wife was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in 2014, for which she underwent che-motherapy. Meanwhile, Mr. Viceroy was taking prescription pain medicine known as opioids for chronic back pain. In Cali-fornia, he traded the pills in for cookies infused with marijuana. You can eat a relatively small amount and get really good pain relief. I got out here and I was like, wow. I dont have to take those pills,Ž he says. With opioids, you have a high, then you come down. You get moody, you get short with people. Can-nabis doesnt do that to you. Im so glad I dont have to take that stuff (opioids) any more. I actually still have pain meds in my drawer, but I realized that I could treat this pain with yoga and edibles,Ž he says. For her part, the marijuana has helped his wife regain some of her appetite, as well as manage pain. Still, opponents of the measure are concerned that medical marijuana will open doors to access that should remain closed. We are always concerned when theres more access and availability of marijuana,Ž says Diane Ramseyer, executive director of Drug Free Charlotte County. She could not comment specifically on Amendment 2, but she says that any proposal that increases the availability of marijuana also leads to more use among teenagers. She also believes that the ballot is the wrong place to decide on a medical issue. What other medicines are we aware of that are approved that way? That really belongs in the FDA system, not the politi-cal process.Ž Q BALLOTFrom page 1We are always concerned when theres more access and availability of marijuana,Ž — Diane Ramseyer, executive director of Drug Free Charlotte County Key DatesPrimary election: Q Tuesday, Aug. 30 – The ballot will include Amendment 4 regarding solar energy tax breaks as well as pri-maries for some state and local races. QTuesday, Nov. 8 – The ballot will include Amendments 1 and 2, as well as the U.S. presidential election. The amendments that didn’t make it Citizens can put an amendment to the state constitution on the ballot by using the initiative process. Initiative requirements include creating a political action committee and collecting a minimum of 683,149 signatures. Legislators can also submit amendments. They require a 60 percent supermajority approval by the legislature to appear on the ballot. Out of 42 initiatives that were led for spots on the 2016 ballot, ve made it on. Here are some of the amendments and initiatives that didn’t make it, courtesy of Ballotpedia.org.  Voting Rights Restoration for Felons Amendment – Would have restored the right to vote for people with prior felony convictions upon completion of their sen-tences. The measure died in legislative committee.  Florida Cannabis Act – Would have legalized mari-juana for use for people 21 and over. It would also have regulated the sale and production of marijuana. Organizers did not obtain the required 683,149 sig-natures required to place the initiative on the ballot.  Minimum Wage Increase Initiative – Would have raised the hourly minimum wage in Florida from $8.05 to $10. The initiative did not garner enough signatures.  Medicaid Expansion Amendment – The measure would have created the Healthy Florida Plan to expand Medicaid eligibility to low-income residents and established a revenue account to accept federal funds. Supporters of this initiated amendment did not submit the required 683,149 signatures to appear on the ballot.  Employees Earned Sick Time Amendment – The measure would have required employers with at least ve employees to provide paid sick time and employers with less than ve employees to provide unpaid sick time. Supporters did not submit the 683,149 signatures necessary.  New Employee Veri cation Amendment – Would have required employers to verify that new employ-ees are authorized to work in the United States by using the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s E-Verify system. Supporters did not collect enough signatures to qualify. KALLINGERRODRIGUESGALLAGHER POLLARA

FLORIDA WRITERSDetermined PI unravels murder at an art classQ The Art of MurderŽ by Elaine Viets. Obsidian/NAL. 304 pages. Hardcover, $25. No one does Fort Lauderdale like Elaine Viets. Shes keenly alert to the vibes of neighborhoods and how social networks develop in places where most people are not natives and many are newcomers. She understands how people define them-selves by their dress, by their home decor and by how they fit into the city. The 15th title in Ms. Veits Dead-End Jobs mystery series, The Art of MurderŽ opens at the delightful Bonnet House museum, which private investigator Helen Haw-thorne is visiting with her 76-year-old landlady and friend, Margaret. Readers learn what the visitors learn about the history of Bonnet House while taking in its architecture, colors, interior design and stories about founders Frederic Clay Bartlett and his wife, Evelyn. Helen and Margaret come across an art class taking place at the museum. They meet the teacher and several students, including Annabel, a painter whose reputation is rapidly rising in the art community. After the class, Anna-bel falls ill in the parking lot. Her ex-husband, who joined the class to make Annabels life miserable, doesnt even offer to help. Before long, Annabel is dead. When one of the others in the group hires Helen to investigate, the client insists that Helen prove the ex-husband guilty. He makes a good suspect, yes, but there are other possibilities. There is also some chance that Annabel committed suicide. Nicotine poisoning is the cause of death. Nicotine vapingŽ fluid ended up in Annabels tea. So, plot line No. 1: Who, if anyone, is guilty of murdering Annabel? It its murder, what was the motive and where is the evidence? Somewhere along the line, perhaps the author asked herself: Do I have a 300-page novel here?Ž Or, Do I need another center of interest?Ž In any case, Ms. Viets came up with plot line No. 2, this one featuring Hel-ens husband, Phil, as the principal investigator who receives some very special help from Helen playing the role of a high-class call girl. Valuable gold coins are being stolen from collec-tors living on the top floors of upscale condos. Building security clearly needs an upgrade, and Phil is hired to find out whats going on and put a stop to the thefts (property values, you know). As we might expect, Phils investigation brings readers into the world of building security, condominium life and collectable coins. His plan is to set a trap for the Gold Ghost (or ghosts). Ms Viets builds the suspense around Phils plan as it is set into action. Markos, the young man with the chiseled muscles who mixes drinks and puts out tasty light meals at the apartment building Margaret owns, has his own role-play duties in Phils plan to trap the thief. He is only one of many colorful characters populating this humorous and well-crafted novel. Others include Clay, Annabels second husband; gal-lery owner Robert Horton; Detective Bart Pelham, one of those career public service cops who look down on private detectives; and a host of female charac-ters connected to the art class at Bonnet House. For each case, the author creates sharply composed interroga-tion scenes in which Helen and Phil draw out more and more of the information they need from witnesses, suspects and even from their employers. Its fun to overhear the clever questioning that allows pieces of the puzzle to fall into place while turning up further complications. Lively, unusually informative and thor-oughly entertaining, The Art of MurderŽ is leisure time read-ing at its very best. If you havent been there, this mystery adventure will put the Bonnet House on your list of places to visit. Its description brought back pleasant memories to this reviewer.About the authorElaine Viets has written 29 mysteries in three series: the bestselling Dead-End Job series with South Florida PI Helen Hawthorne, the cozy Josie Mar-cus Mystery Shopper mysteries and the dark Francesca Vierling mysteries. Brain Storm,Ž the first book in her new Angela Richman, Death Investigator series, came out earlier this month. In it, Ms. Viets uses her experience as a stroke survivor and her studies in medi-colegal death investigation at St. Louis University.

Q A10 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 11-17, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY BOOK REVIEWBurroughs’ voice shines through in racy memoir BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@” oridaweekly.comQ Lust & Wonder,Ž a memoir by Augusten Burroughs. St. Martins Press, 2016. 295 pages. Hardcover $26.99. Lust & WonderŽ is more or less as funny and sharp as Burroughs many other memoirs, although it can also feel a little canned. This is his 10th book, and while the details in each may differ, Im not convinced they matter. As Mick Jag-ger sang, Its the singer, not the song.Ž It is Burroughs big-hearted, brazenly hon-est, gay American voice „ his brand „ that you respond to, and because of that its not really a spoiler alert to reveal the ending. So heres how the book goes: Burroughs makes his way through two serious boyfriends, the shabby Mitch and humorless Dennis, before finally hooking up with his impossibly hot but HIV-positive editor who he has been in love with all along. They live happily ever after. Thats about it. Theres not a lot to think about once you put the book down. For the most part its also a blast to read because of Burroughs voice, his sensibilities: smart and fierce with a highly developed sense of dread. He allows his true self to come through in the prose „ sometimes deliciously cruel, or touchingly vulnerable. That voice proceeded from the outrageous circumstances in his youth in Massachu-setts, so well depicted in Running with Scissors,Ž his fantastic, first published memoir in 2002. If you read none of his others, ScissorsŽ is probably the one to read. It is the foundation of everything that came later, including his life in Manhattan and this latest book billed in the liner notes as a capstoneŽ memoir, the place where all the surreal suffer-ing and transcendent joy of his youth, the lust and wonder through which Burroughs has always seen the world and experienced life finally ended up. But it also makes you wonder if he plans to quit writing because he has become happy. As it turns out, Burroughs rides off into the sunset literally with the man of his dreams. It is an epic l ove, a true l ove, but also brings a note of comfort and contentment to the story that is a bit of a bummer. The instincts and flaws that drive the authors personality arent as believable or necessary in the hap-pier world in which he finds himself at the end. It raises the questions, does the best art come from pain? Will Burroughs ever write another memoir? Is he boring now that hes happy? No, but hes also not quite as interesting. The longest, most moving, urgent and revealing section of the book is about the difference between the people we love and the ones we often end up with. Burroughs becomes involved with a man named Dennis, and they end up stuck with each other for almost a decade. Dennis is not even Burroughs first choice, and vice versa. What Den-nis really seems to have a thing for is black guys with big butts instead of Burroughss skinny white ass, and Bur-roughs is already in love with his edi-tor. Their relationship finally implodes completely when Burroughs and his editor plunge into a fairytale romance and sad Dennis just kind of disappears. I wonder what it would be like for him to read this book, if he has, and imagine it might be pretty awful. Q t m emories to this s e c e o n a cr t e y h w f VIETS phil JASONphiljreviews@gmail.com

For more machismo-machines, check out the special section in this weeks issue. But the Range Rover shouldnt be confined to The ManŽ page because it appeal transcends the sexes. The allure of this SUV has its roots in temptation. Land Rover did not officially sell any Range Rovers in the U.S.A. for nearly two decades. During that time it transformed from a utilitarian off-roader to an uncommon luxury machine. Some would trickle across the Atlantic as small-batch grayŽ market imports. This little taste meant that by the time Land Rover exported directly to the U.S. in the late 1980s, we were already hooked on the idea of an upper class British 4x4. Its nearly 30 years later, but the lingering flavor of forbidden fruit still has an aroma of temptation. Not many car companies can claim this level of mystique in a major market like North America. So thats why even the fourth generation Range Rover styling cues are more about evolution than revolution. The low door line, black roof pillars, and slab sides are all there to carry the charisma of the original SUV. In fact, the largest problem might be the new design ele-ments. The updated and sleek-er Land Rover/Range Rover corporate face debuted on the Evoke model „ one of the least expensive vehicles in the lineup. So the top-of-the-line Range Rover is occasion-ally mistaken for a vehicle that costs half as much. While the exterior is different, the interior keeps tra-ditionalists happy. The high seating combines with the tra-ditional low door line so theres a lot of glass and a great review. Thats pure classic Range Rover. Add in the excep-tionally comfortable leather, and it feels like royalty sitting on a throne. The royal court can choose to stand or kneel thanks to an adjustable air ride suspension thats controlled with just the touch of a button. Its packaged with a terrain selector control that adjusts the settings for the permanent all-wheel drive. Ahead of that is the nifty trans-mission selector knob that rises from the console when the car is started. This might seem like a confusing array of buttons and knobs, but Range Rover excels at packaging its technology to not detract from the leather, aluminum, and wood that make it feel like a true luxury machine. Theres three-zone cli-mate control, a touchscreen infotain-ment system, myriad cameras to check out every angle of the vehicle, and many more features, but it never feels like technology overload.What makes our test car particularly unique is the drivers throne is no lon-ger the most important seat. This is the extended wheelbase LŽ version that offers nearly an additional eight inches in the wheelbase, and it all goes to the rear seat-ing. While owners can be the driver, this was created for the chauffeur-driven set. The back seats are exceptionally roomy, and they are electronically adjustable as well as heated and cooled. Theres even access to a refrigerated center console.All the added room comes at a reasonable $5,000 over the standard vehicles price. Of course a Range Rover doesnt start out cheap „ $85,945, and the extended wheelbase is reserved for the upgraded Supercharged V8 models, which start at $104,090.Theres a 3.0-liter turbo diesel V6 and a 3.0-liter supercharged gas V6 available in the stan-dard version, but stepping up to the supercharged V8 helps this SUV really keep its reputation. The larger motors 510 horsepower is a 34 percent upgrade over the gas V6 and even provides more torque than the diesel. It creates a large SUV with the quickness of a sports car, the ride of a luxury vehicle, and a towing capacity that outshines some full-sized trucks. Its a total package worthy of a car that once built its reputation on mystique just as much as prowess. After all, what other vehicle is as equipped to greet royalty as it is to launch your buddys boat? Q myles KORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 11-17, 2016 NEWS A15Trucks and SUVs with the man in mindYou dont have to be a man to own a pickup, but they are truly built with the kind of machismo that can get the testosterone flowing the moment we have to step up into the extra-tall cab. The great part of a truck is that each one carries a basic functionality that can get the tools to the jobsite and carry home a weekends worth of projects. So, for the ones that make our list, we are going one step further to look at the best features that are only possible with a pickup „ off-road fun and towing the toys. Off-road: Ford F-150 This is the best-selling vehicle in the U.S., and it consistently ranks in the top five in the world. That doesnt exactly make the F-Series pickup the first choice for standing out in a crowd, but if Ford sells so many, it is a clear indication that they listen to what customers want. This is especially true in the 4x4 segment. Fords F-150 Raptor is basically a street-legal version of a Baja 1000 vehi-cle. It has a specially developed long travel suspension that makes it a true bully when going off the beaten path. It is built for those who are happy to head into the unknown at 50 mph and for whom catching some air off a hill is a badge of honor. But buyer beware, this true off-road grit does not work well when it is time to run on pavement. Stepping down a level is a pretty good compromise. The standard F-150 4x4 is a comfortable truck on the road that eats up the highway miles with ease. The Crew Cab model even has plenty of room for adult-sized friends. But what makes this stand out is how it can go from a long-distance cruiser to an off-road bruiser in an instant. Theres a long list of options for those who genuinely enjoy getting muddy. It starts with the FX4 off-road suspension package. Theres productivity readout available that gives the driver info on pitch, roll, steering angle and suspen-sion compression. The 360-degree cam-era will even show potential upcoming obstacles. When optioned correctly, this is the 4x4 thats good for everything from finding the creative way of leaving the tailgate parking lot to running along the edge of the Everglades. Its everything a weekend warrior could want. Towing: Nissan Titan XD Diesel trucks are a wonderful thing. Their motors have a hypnotic low-level grunt at idle thats almost asking, Why dont you challenge me with something heavy?Ž But Nissan went in another direction. The new Titan XD utilizes a 5.0-liter Cummins turbo diesel that isnt trying to wake the neighborhood. It might seem like a diesel without the battle cry rum-ble is like trying to breed with a gelding, but in this case, running silent comes with some serious credentials „ 310 hp, 555 lb-ft of torque, and a towing capac-ity of up to 12,300 pounds. Thats more than the standard 1500-series trucks out there, and it might symbolize that Nis-san has found a new segment we didnt know existed. Detroits Big Three automakers already do a fine job of covering the heavy duty end of the market segment with their 2500 and 3500-series trucks. In fact, the top-level diesels have com-mercial-grade hauling capacity. Its a market segment that isnt looking for innovation, and so the Titan XD aims for a different target ... one thats well suited for Florida boys. Nissans truck offers a capacity above the standard 1500-series line. Thats enough to tow most boats and four-wheel trailers with enough grunt left over to pull the whole package out of slippery ramps or muddy trails. Sure, the 2500 and 3500 series pickups can do that, too, but what about when theres nothing on the trailer hitch? Because the Titan XD doesnt rise to heavy dutyŽ standards, it delivers a little better fuel economy in everyday situations. So this is the truck that runs a quiet diesel, tows more than the standard pickup, and is more everyday friendly than the commercial-grade offerings. Basically, the Titan XD is like that one friend whos fit and athletic but doesnt brag about it. In a sticky situation, hes the one you usually count on first, right? Trucks never have to prove that theyre a mans toy because they have a tough virility built right into their DNA. But SUVs are different. Decades ago these were our hunting and beach bud-dies „ built to get us far enough beyond roads that the back seat might just be our bed for the night. But now the segment has ballooned into coddling vehicles that have replaced the minivan in the soccer practice pickup line. With strong names like Blazer and Scout discarded for Enclave and Flex, the SUV/crossover thats made for guys is no longer about pure utility. Its now just as important to make a statement upon arrival. So here are two of the boldest choices around. Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT: Jeep makes some serious off-roading machines, but this is not one of them. Sure, it has four-wheel drive that is adaptable to different terrain. But any-thing except the front lawn will eat into those soft Pirelli tires. So why does an SUV that doesnt go off-road make the list? Because those same tires help this Grand Cherokee stick to the pavement like a sports car. With a 475 hp 6.4-liter Hemi V8, Brembo brakes and launch control, its the vehicle that makes every dad the hero of the morning carpool and the envy of the neighborhood. The phrase, Dont tell mommy we just did THAT,Ž will become engrained into every Grand Cherokee SRT child more frequently than saying thank youŽ for a free super-market cookie. There are more practical choices for a family that needs a solid SUV for road trips, light towing, grocery runs, etc. But every time the V8 roars to life and teach-es a Porsche a lesson at the stoplights, it will justify a to dip into to the college fund to pay for this indulgence. It is cojones disguised as a five-person SUV. But remember you dont fool everybody. Your wife gets a set of keys, too. Range Rover: Few people remember that the Range Rover was once an outlaw. They spent years being an independently imported grayŽ market vehicles that were not tested for our shores. Just as NASCAR drivers started out as moonshiners but today are multi-millionaires, todays Range Rover driver is more hedge fund than fugitive. But sometimes being a guy is just about taking pleasure in being top dog, and the high dollar Range Rover makes that statement just by showing up. So, to understand how it excels at hitting the trails just as easily as it hits the town, read the full review on page A11.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 11-17, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY HEALTHY LIVING UF study: Hungry parents might dish out more food for their kids THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAThe hungrier parents are at mealtimes, a new study shows, the more they might feed their young children, which could have implications for childhood obesity. In a small pilot study of 29 children ages 3 to 6 and their mothers, University of Flor-ida researchers asked the mothers to rate their hunger as well as their childs hunger prior to a meal. Among women who were overweight or obese, those who rated their own hunger higher also perceived their childs hunger as higher and, in turn, served their child larger portions of food. Because young children have difficulty recognizing when they are full, the more food they are presented at mealtime, the more they are likely to eat,Ž says lead inves-tigator Sarah Stromberg, a clinical psychol-ogy doctoral student in the department of clinical and health psychology in the UF College of Public Health and Health Pro-fessions, part of UF Health. The study was designed to determine what factors might impact how much food parents are serving their young children. If we can start to identify those factors, we might be able intervene to help parents develop more appropriate portion sizes for younger kids, which hopefully can lead to a longer life of healthy eating habits,Ž senior author David Janicke, Ph.D., a professor of clinical and health psychology, says. Because of the small sample size, the study findings are preliminary. Ms. Strom-berg and Mr. Janicke say future research should be conducted with a larger group of participants and should track the calories consumed by children throughout the day, not just at one meal, as was done in the UF study. In addition, researchers should observe parents and children in a home environment eating the foods they normal-ly serve rather than the free, buffet-style meal offered by the researchers. I think this study was a good starting point,Ž Mr. Janicke ssays. Ultimately, if were able to see these findings replicated, we can intervene with knowledge, aware-ness and strategies to help parents and kids work together to limit how much kids are being served. Previous research has found that parents with depression and anxiety might be more likely to believe that their children are experiencing the same psychological symptoms. Ms. Stromberg and Mr. Janicke wanted to examine whether that kind of projectingŽ of parents feelings onto their children might hold true for perceptions of hunger. For the study, mother-child pairs were asked to participate in a study of their interactions during playtime and a lunch or dinner meal. After 10 minutes play at a UF lab, mothers were asked to complete a questionnaire that collected demographic information and asked her to rate her hunger and her childs hunger on a seven-point scale, where 1 was not hungry at all and 7 was extremely hungry. Researchers also col-lected participants height and weight. Next, researchers brought in a selection of food and drinks and asked the mother to serve her child and herself. The options were chosen for their palatability in young children and included baby carrots, apple slices, cheese slices, crackers, cookies, macaroni and cheese, vegetable lasagna, chicken nuggets, water, 1 percent milk and apple juice. Researchers found that for mothers who were heavier, higher ratings of their personal hunger were relat-ed to rating their childs hunger as higher. Those mothers also tended to dish out more food to their children than mothers who were in a healthy weight range. The researchers also discovered that regardless of a mothers weight or perceptions of hunger, most of the participants served their child portions that were larg-er than recommended daily allowances. Mothers served 573 calories, on average, to their child, with children consuming an average of 445 calories. The suggested daily intake for children in the 3to 6-year-old range is 1,000 to 1,400 calories. Ideally, one meal for a child that age would not exceed 400 calories, Ms. Stromberg says. Resources such as choosemyplate.gov can help parents determine how many calories their children should consume, she adds. Using those recommendations can help parents be objective when serving their kids and not base portion sizes on their own hunger or how much they are serving themselves.Ž Q Scripps Florida scientists discover drugs that increase bone mass SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYIn addition to its more obvious ills, type 2 diabetes is a condition closely associated with bone fractures, increas-ing the risk of fractures twofold. To make matters worse, certain anti-dia-betic drugs further increase this risk, particularly in postmenopausal women, severely limiting their treatment options. A new study, co-led by Patrick R. Griffin, a professor on the Florida cam-pus of The Scripps Research Institute, and B. Lecka-Czernik, a professor at the University of Toledo, has shown that a new class of drug candidates developed at TSRI increases bone mass by expand-ing bone formation (deposition of new bone) and bone turnover (a normal process of replacement of old bone). A proper balance of these two processes is critical to healthy bone maintenance, and this balance is frequently negatively affected in diabetic patients. The result is a new dual-targeting drug candidate „ or, as Mr. Griffin describes, one drug addressing mul-tiple therapeutic indicationsŽ „ that could treat both diabetes and bone dis-ease. The compound has been refer-enced as SR10171.Ž The study was published recently online ahead of print by the journal EBioMedicine. Diabetes affects more than 29 million people in the U.S., according to a 2012 report from the American Diabetes Association. Between 2010 and 2012, the incidence rate was about 1.7 to 1.9 million per year, and in 2013, estimated direct medical costs of the disease were $176 billion. Over the past decade, Mr. Griffin and his colleague, TSRI Associate Professor Theodore Kamenecka, have focused on the details of molecules that increase sensitivity to insulin (a hormone that regulates blood sugar). Using newly discovered information, the researchers made significant advances in develop-ing a family of drug candidates that target a receptor known as peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors gamma (a key regulator of stem cells control-ling bone formation and bone resorp-tion and a master regulator of fat. Anti-diabetic drugs known as glitazones target the PPAR protein, but that interaction leads to severe bone loss and increased fractures. Stem cells in the bone marrow can differentiate either into bone cells or fat cells, and the glitazones drive them to fat at the expense of bone. But SR10171 is designed to avoid this troubling outc ome. In animal models treated with the compound, fat forma-tion in the bone marrow was success-fully blocked independent of their meta-bolic state (healthy or diabetic). Using structural biology technigues and rational design synthetic chemistry, SR10171 was constructed to engage the PPAR protein in a unique way pos-sessing an optimal balance with the receptors other family member, PPARa, to treat diabetes and, at the same time, improve bone health,Ž Mr. Griffin said. This targeted polypharmacological approach demonstrates that the target isnt the problem if you target it cor-rectly.Ž The compound increases bone mass by protecting and increasing the activity of bone cells in various stages of nor-mal bone maintenance, utilizing mecha-nisms that overlap those that regulate whole-body energy metabolism. SR10171 improves bone mass regardless of body mass index, normal to obese,Ž Mr. Griffin added. So you could use such a drug to treat osteoporosis whether patients are diabetic or not.Ž Q

HEALTHY LIVINGRevolutionary heart stent now availableA new device has arrived in Palm Beach County that may help individuals suffering from coronary artery disease, or CAD, the leading cause of death for American adults. The Abbott Absorb bioresorbable vascular scaffold, recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration, is inserted into a patients clogged artery to keep it open and restore blood flow. This innovative heart stent is made of a naturally dissolving material that gradu-ally disappears in about three years and is designed to reduce the risk of future blockages that can occur with tradi-tional metal stents. Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is the only hospital from Miami to Jacksonville to commercially use this alternative treatment option for CAD patients. When a coronary artery (an artery feeding the heart muscle) is narrowed by a buildup of fatty deposits called plaque, it can reduce blood flow to the heart muscle, which may result in chest pain. If a clot forms and completely blocks the blood flow to part of the heart muscle, it can cause a heart attack. According to the American Heart Asso-ciation, the most common symptom of CAD is chest pain or discomfort, and other symptoms may include shortness of breath, palpitations or even fatigue. Stents can help keep coronary arteries open and reduce the risk of a heart attack. Typically, patients who get the bioresorbable stent stay overnight and return home the day after the minimally invasive procedure. According to published studies, the Absorb bioresorb-able stent has demonstrated compara-ble short-t erm and mid-term outc omes to the leading metallic stent, Abbotts Xience drug eluting stent. Since there is no metal involved, the treated artery can potentially reacquire its normal shape, allowing the vessel to grow. With this new technology, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center offers hope to those suffering from a heart condition that affects more than 15 mil-lion people in the United States. In addi-tion to being the first in South Florida to implant the bioresorbable device, the hospitals Heart and Vascular Institute was the first in Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast to perform openheart surgery. If youve been diagnosed with CAD and would like to receive a free physician referral to one of the seven doctors who perform this new procedure at Palm Beach Gardens Medi-cal Center, call (877) 346-1842.

Youre locked in a room and have one hour to piece together clues you find there in order to escape the clutches of a crazed serial killer. Can you do it? Thats just one challenge offered by Legends of Xscape, a collection of mys-terious, live escape rooms that opened in West Palm Beach last year. All the rage these days, these rooms are designed to excite and inspire contestants while providing brainteaser fun,Ž according to Jody Achilles, 35, who runs the busi-ness with her husband, Jamie Aramini, 40. The couple, who live in Jupiter, left their jobs in sales to take the plunge into this new business in July 2015. The concept has been around for a while,Ž Ms. Achilles said. It started in Europe and Asia and came to the U.S. maybe six years ago. There are escape rooms in Miami and Orlando, for example, as well as several other big cities around the country. Its starting to get more popular here. We came across the idea and experienced some rooms on our own and really loved them. We enjoy doing puzzles and entertaining people, so it made sense to launch Leg-ends of Xscape.Ž The concept is simple, she added. A group of family, friends or business asso-ciates books one or more of five escape rooms at the companys 4,000-square-foot facility at 324 Datura St., Suite 101, in West Palm Beach. Each room has a different theme. Two are apartments, one is the lair of a mysterious serial killer, another is a chamber on a pirate ship and the last is a room in an aban-doned building. You have 60 minutes to go into the room and use all of the elements inside the room to figure out how to solve the puzzle and escape,Ž Ms. Achilles said. Each room has a different theme and scenario you need to follow to get out. Theyre fully immersive adventure games where different objects and clues lead you to solve different riddles and puzzles.Ž Because of the popularity of the rooms, Ms. Achilles and her husband change the themes and scenarios about once every nine months or so to keep dedicated puzzle solvers coming back. All of our rooms are very popular, but there are different difficulty levels,Ž she said. Most people start with the easier ones and then work their way through all of them. Id say the apartment rooms are a four out of 10 difficulty level, the abandoned building we call Sunday Morning is six out of 10, Helter Skelter, the serial killer room, is eight out of 10 and the Pirates Booty is nine out of 10. The harder rooms have more advanced logic puzzles in them and there are more steps required to solve them. But the time limit is still 60 minutes.Ž Ms. Achilles said about 5,000 players have visited Legends of Xscape since its inception a year ago. She estimated the Pirates BootyŽ room has a 10 percent success rate while 30 percent of the con-testants have solved the apartments and 20 percent to 30 percent have solved the other two rooms. We do monitor the activity in the rooms and we want everyone to com-plete the game successfully and have a great time,Ž she said. Theyre allowed to ask for three hints, so we know when to drop some clues for those who need just a little push to solve it. We know how to keep everyone engaged without giving too much information away.Ž Pricing starts at $25 per person, per game. Three to six players are encour-aged to participate in order to solve the puzzle within an hour. Kids under 12 must be accompanied by an adult, but all ages are welcome to play. Players are urged to dress comfortably, as they will be moving around, but there is limited physical activity. They need to be able to bend down, reach up, push and pull object. The majority of the work centers on problem-solving and opening locks. We have had families with small children all the way up to an 80th birthday party,Ž Ms. Achilles said. We are also wheelchair accessible and we do a lot of corporate bookings for team building events. Weve had employee groups from The Breakers, Office Depot and various local businesses and church groups come in and compete. They bring in their teams and we divide them among the five rooms. Everyone goes in at the same time. They all have had a lot of fun. Its a great way to promote communication, working together and problem solving.Ž Lindsay Gertner and her husband, Tony, of West Palm Beach have expe-rienced three of the Legends of Xscape rooms and will soon head back for another. We love it,Ž Ms. Gertner said. One of our friends introduced us to it and now not only have we gone, but weve bought gift certificates for our friends to go. Its really been a great experience.Ž Ms. Gertner said the experience is a real adrenaline rush. Its knowledge-based and you have to use critical thinking as you work as a team within the timeframe allowed. Its also very competitive as you try to beat the escape time of the people that went before you. This can be done as a date night or with another couple,Ž she said. I found it thrilling and as soon as I escaped, I wanted to do another one.Ž Q „ For more information about Legends of Xscape or to make a reservation, call 406-0611 or visit legendsofxscape. com.

Brown Family YMCA, Lisa Fisher official job duties include over-seeing operations and programming, leading the Ys philanthropic efforts, engaging volunteers and maximizing community partner-ships. But in her high level position, she still can be called on for a variety of tasks many may not expect. Youve got to be ready to do just about anything,Ž Ms. Fisher said. Ive worked the front desk, done some coun-seling and even scrubbed the toilets.ŽShes been part of the YMCA family for 25 years, although she is new to Florida and the West Palm Beach Y. Ms. Fisher had been assistant director in Glasgow, Ky., at the Barren County Family YMCA, and later moved to the YMCA of Harri-son County in Corydon, Ind., where she became executive director.I fell in love with the Y when I first walked through its doors,Ž she said, recalling her work in Kentucky. I had come from a law firm background. I found out that you have to roll up your sleeves and you get more than you put in.Ž Not everyone knows about the Y, but should, she said. The nonprofit organization provides more than $200,000 annually in scholar-ships for childrens and family programs supported by the community and dona-tions. The Ys 18-acre campus includes a fitness center, skate park, early learning center, after-school care, multipurpose room, spin and yoga studio, community room, and aquatic center. Its a place people can come and feel welcome and feel safe,Ž Ms. Fisher said. They can feel good physically and mentally, and they can volunteer. There are many opportunities for that, from painting to lifeguarding to working the front desk.ŽHer first Y job was in membership services, but even then she did a little of everything, she said. Nonprofit work is that way,Ž the mother of three grown sons said.Unlike previous Ys for which she worked, all new expansions, the West Palm Y is well established, founded in 1917. The facility on Congress Avenue has been around since 1982. I like diversity and everything it has to offer,Ž Ms. Fisher said. She would like to work out more often at the Y, but up until now, she said, I tend to work and not workout.Ž For more information or to donate, call 968-9622 or visit ymcapalmbeaches.org. Age: 58 Where I grew up: I grew up in Louisville, Ky., but jobs have taken me to California, Indiana, Southern Kentucky and now, luckily, to Florida. Where I live now: Palm Beach. Education: B.S. Business Management Indiana Wesleyan University What brought me to Florida? My new job with the Y (what a great excuse to move to Paradise?) My first job and what it taught me: My first job was a hotel desk clerk it left an impressive as to how important a friendly, positive attitude and a bright smile is for someone in the customer service field. Even when youre having a bad day you have to put that smile on, and, as the saying goes, attitude does equal altitude. Hard work does pay off, both financially and in people recogniz-ing your value. A career highlight: I had been working at my second Y and throughout my career had done just about every job there that was in this organization. At the time I was the membership director and had the opportunity to interview for the position of executive director, and was awarded the position. What I do when Im not working: I enjoy music, all music, but country is at the top of my list. Taking short motor-cycle trips to see new things I find to be very relaxing. I enjoy kayaking and now I am living my dream, anything to do with the beach. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: Nonprofit work is servant-leader work. Be willing to roll your sleeves up and do any job, mix that with a lot of patience and a love for helping people and you will receive more in return than you ever give. About mentors: My mentor is a wonderful, kind-hearted, tough indi-vidual. She taught me to never ask someone to do something that you are not prepared to do yourself. To give all you have and then give a bit more, and, above all, always have an attitude of gratitude. Q Name: Lisa Fisher Title: Executive director of The Edwin W.

Increases in the Northeast and Midwest were offset by declines in the South and West. The Pending Home Sales Index, a forward-looking indicator based on con-tract signings, inched 0.2 percent to 111.0 in June from 110.8 in May and is now 1.0 percent higher than June 2015 (109.9). With Junes minor improvement, the index is now at its second highest read-ing over the past 12 months, but is notice-ably down from this years peak level in April (115.0). Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says a solid bump in activity in the Northeast pulled up pending sales mod-estly in June. With only the Northeast region having an adequate supply of homes for sale, the reoccurring dilemma of strained supply causing a run-up in home prices continues to play out in several markets, leading to the last two months reflecting a slight, early summer cool down after a very active spring,Ž he said. Unfor-tunately for prospective buyers trying to take advantage of exceptionally low mortgage rates, housing inventory at the end of last month was down almost 6 percent from a year ago, and home prices are showing little evidence of slowing to a healthier pace that more closely mir-rors wage and income growth.Ž Adds Mr. Yun, Until inventory conditions markedly impr ove, far too many prospective buyers are likely to run into situations of either being priced out of the market or outbid on the very few properties available for sale.Ž One noteworthy and positive development occurring in the housing market during the first half of the year, accord-ing to Mr. Yun, is that sales to investors have subsided from a high of 18 percent in February to a low of 11 percent in June, which is the smallest share since July 2009. Mr. Yun attributes this retreat to the diminished number of distressed prop-erties coming onto the market at any given time and the ascent in home prices, which have now risen year-over-year for 52 consecutive months. Limited selection of homes at bargain prices is reducing the number of indi-vidual investors willing or able to buy,Ž adds Mr. Yun. This will hopefully open the door for first-time buyers, who made some progress last month three but are still buying homes at a subpar level even as rents increase at rates not seen since before the downturn four.Ž In spite of the slight slowdown in contract signings from Aprils peak high, existing-home sales this year are still expected to be around 5.44 million, a 3.6 percent boost from 2015 and the highest annual pace since 2006 (6.48 million). After accelerating to 6.8 percent a year ago, national median existing-home price growth is forecast to slightly moderate to around 4 percent. Q

Downtown, fairgrounds go ‘Jurassic’ BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@” oridaweekly.comHeres a perfect plan for the dinosaur lover in your family: Combine these two West Palm Beach events for a weekend of dinosaur immersion. On Aug. 12, West Palms monthly free outdoor movie, Screen on the Green, takes place from 8 to 10 p.m. on the Great Lawn at the West Palm Beach Waterfront. Theyre screening Jurassic World 3D,Ž which may seem a lot scarier outside in the open. You should bring your own blan-kets and lawn chairs. Out at the South Florida Fairgrounds, a traveling exhibit called Jurassic Quest, opens with more than 50 ultra-realistic, life-size animatronic dinosaurs. It opens at 3 p.m. on Aug. 12, so you can visit the exhibit and have plenty of time to get to the movie. Or see the movie on Friday and visit the exhibits on Aug. 13, when its open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., or Aug. 14 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. If you have play all dayŽ kids, you might want to visit the dinosaurs when you have more than just a few hours. There are huge T-Rex and Triceratops fos-sil digs where your budding paleontolo-gists can uncover ancient dinosaur bones and cute baby dinosaurs and activities for younger kids. The event also has inflat-ables, face painting and science stations and arts and crafts. The South Florida Fairgrounds is at 9067 Southern Blvd., West Palm Beach. Tickets are $15 for age 2-12; $21 for age 13-64; $19 for age 65 and older, and theres also a kids VIP pass that provides unlim-ited access to most events for $25.

Ms. Rowe said the program began seven years ago with one student directing a play called The Good Times Are Killing Me.Ž That first production was so exciting for our staff that we decided to grow the program so that every depart-ment of the play would be headed by a student,Ž she said. Its so rewarding to be able to pass on knowledge one-on-one to students and watch them grow and take ownership of the play as a whole.Ž Those other departments now filled by students are producer, stage man-ager, assistant stage manager, scenic designer, sound designer, light-ing designer, costume designer, props master, run crew, public relations director, public relations associate and social media manager. Ms. Rowe said all of those positions were determined through an extensive interview and selection process in which the stu-dents applied for the jobs they most desired. They were then placed in positions in which it was decided they would learn the most. There is no cost for the students to participate in the program, which is sponsored by The Clark Family PriEVERY ONCE IN A WHILE A PERSON MAKES A BIG impact. Five years ago, that person arrived in Palm Beach County and his activism, leadership and energy ripple through the arts community. After he opened his studio in Boynton Beach, Rolando Chang Barrero helped to initiate the Arts District there, and then, with fellow artist Craig McGuiness, started Art Synergy, exhibiting local artists along with the Palm Beach and Boca Fine Art Shows. Next, he opened his eponymous gallery on Lucerne Avenue in Lake Worth and this June, launched his fourth art endeavor here: The Box Gallery with 4,000 square feet of exhibition space on Belvedere Road. I coined this Belvedere area to be The Kids helm Maltz Jupiter’s ‘Rhinoceros’ Artisticinnovator SEE KIDS, B10 X SEE ARTIST, B14 XBY STEVEN J.

Next show is Sept. 2-4; wpbaf.com. Cost: $100. The Skinny: My dealer friend and I both wanted this to be the Willie, the advertising penguin for Kool Cigarettes. I dont think it is, though. For starters, most of the figural Willie the penguins I have seen online are made of plaster or even plastic. The white paint would have a yellow cast to it and not be as shiny. Likewise, the black would be faded. That said, it does have some age „ its foot was damaged some years ago during a break-in at my dealer friends shop. Hed had the piece for a number of years before that. It also has a great graphic appeal „ picture the bird perched on a mantelpiece „ or atop a desk, as I have done. Q „ Scott Simmons”‹–‡–‘…‘––ƒ–••‹‘•7 Ž‘”‹†ƒ™‡‡Ž›…‘Wooden figure of a penguin THE FIND: My antiques dealer friend offered me a great deal „ a life-size advertising sculpture of Willie the penguin, the symbol of Kool Cigarettes, for $100. Willie was an icon of the 1930s to the 50s. Advertising pieces remain popular with collectors „ most have a great graphics, and this penguin is a good-looking piece, but it isnt Willie. My friend and I clearly must have been smoking something else, because this penguin bears little resemblance to the cartoonish Willie, clearly a bird of another feather. That happens to collectors when they get caught up in the moment. We see something and, if wishing could make it so, it would be. But it wasnt.Theres a lesson here: Do your research. Know what youre looking at. Then make an educated decision. Sad thing was, I had an iPhone in my pocket. I easily could have spent a few minutes doing the research and potentially avoiding an impulse buy. After all, I dont even collect advertising art, so its not like I needed this piece to round out my collection. But heres the way I would turn something bad into something good: While this bird isnt an iconic piece of 20th century advertising memorabilia, it is cute and it is decorative. I mean, who doesnt love a penguin? Its funny that while this one is wearing a bowtie, it sports a bowler, rather than the fussily formal top hat you traditionally see on a penguin. So maybe this bird was meant to be „ at least for me. This penguin has pride of place atop the desk of my office at Ž‘”‹†ƒ‡‡Ž›, and all who visit comment on it. To me, thats worth at least what I paid for the piece, so its a treasure „ though not the treasure I thought it would be. Thats OK. I did not spend a great fortune on it, and its something you will not run across every day. Maybe this is one find that didnt lay an egg after all. Q

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 11-17, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B3 CELEBRITY EXTRAT.R. Knight moving to ‘The Catch’ BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: It was good to see T.R. Knight in Stephen Kings 11/22/63Ž on Hulu. Can you tell me if he has any other projects lined up? „ Vivian D., Biloxi, MississippiA : The Greys AnatomyŽ alum will be working with Shonda Rimes again as a recur-ring character in season two of The Catch,Ž which airs this spring. The exact nature of his role „ as well as the number of episodes hell be in „ has been kept under wraps. If youre familiar with the show, you know that this is a con-man/caper series, so each week is full of surprises, and now we can add T.R. to the list. The series stars Mireille Enos of The KillingŽ and Peter Kraus of Parent-hoodŽ and Six Feet UnderŽ fame. Shonda released the following statement of this casting coup: This has been a thrill-ing secret to keep! One of my favorite family members is home!Ž T.R. is also feeling the love, sta ting: I am heartened to be returning to Shondaland and excited to work with this exceptional cast.Ž Q: I just starting binge-watching Orange Is the New Black,Ž and Im really impressed by the performance of Samira Wiley. What else can I see her in? „ Dottie F., via emailA: The lovely and talented actress has just been cast in The Handmaids Tale,Ž the series adaptation of the book of the same name by Margaret Atwood. However, for this gig, Samira is jumping ship at Net-flix and heading over to Hulu. If youre not familiar with the story, or you read it back in high school and cant quite remember it, its a dystopian science-fiction story set in the near-future, which focuses on a totali-tarian Christian theocracy, the Sons of Jacob, which has overthrown the U.S. government. In this society, human rights are severely limited and womens rights are unrecognized; almost all women are forbidden to read. The series stars Elizabeth Moss (Mad MenŽ) as Offred „ one of the few remain-ing fertile women living in our now-named nation of Gilead „ whos one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world. Samira plays her best friend. Max Minghella (The Mindy ProjectŽ) and Ann Dowd (The LeftoversŽ) also star. Readers: I promised Id give you the scoop on the Gilmore GirlsŽ reunion on Netflix as the information became available, and I am a woman of my word. Lauren Gra-ham, Alexis Bledel, Melissa McCarthy, Scott Patterson, Kelly Bishop, Sean Gunn and Keiko Agena are all returning (among many others). Gilmore Girls: A Year in the LifeŽ will consist of four 90-minute movies, all of which drop on Nov. 25. Q „ Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, 628 Virginia Drive, Orlando, FL 32803; or email letters@cindyelavsky.com.Samira Wiley CONTRACT BRIDGEThe road to winning defense BY STEVE BECKERPoint count can be used not only during the bidding, but also during the play. In this deal from a team match, point count proved to be very helpful. The contract was three notrump, and at both tables West led a spade. At the first table, East took the ace and returned the queen, which declarer ducked. A third spade was taken by the king, and the ten of diamonds was led and finessed. The finesse lost to the king, but since East had no more spades to lead and West had no entry card to cash his spades, South made three notrump. At the second table, the contract went down one after East played the queen of spades on the opening trick rather than the ace. Declarer could not be blamed for taking the queen with the king and trying the diamond finesse. When he did so, East won with the king and played the ace and another spade to defeat the contract. Easts play of the queen of spades at trick one was clearly correct. He was looking at 11 points in his own hand and 12 in dummy. Since South was known to have at least 15 points for his opening notrump bid, account-ing for 38 of the 40 points in the deck, East was in a position to know that West had at most two points. Consequently, West could not have a side entry to cash his spades. East therefore played the queen to force out the king and in that way create an entry to his partners hand. Note that South could have thwarted Easts play by ducking the queen of spades at trick one, but he was natu-rally afraid that the whole spade suit would be run against him if, as was certainly possible, West held five or six spades headed by the A-J.

SAVE up to 20% ARTS COMMENTARYColoring outside the lines with very adult coloring booksColoring books have always been a thing with the preschool set. But now adults are learning the joys of coloring, too. Theres something pleasantly stupefying about picking up a crayon and coloring within the lines. Moms and dads, grandparents and even babysitters everywhere have discovered this while joining a little one whos contently col-oring Personally, Ive never been one for staying within the lines. First of all, its not that fun. And its not too creative. I remember coloring when I was 3 years old. An older British woman, a friend of my moms, was babysitting me at the time. I remember a picture of a fire engine, in thick black outlines. Everyone colors their fire engines red,Ž I told her. Im going to color mine green!Ž Um hmm, thats nice, dearie,Ž she replied. She must have thought I was either a simpleton or colorblind. I hope that fire engine never had to put out any fires in a forest „ itd be completely camouflaged. Of course, I lived in the city, and anything green would stand out among all that gray as much as red would. When I was growing up, the New York papers would hold coloring contests. Youd color the picture, cut it out, fill out the form with your name and address and age, and send it in. How quaint that must seem now.But I was thrilled to actually win a prize with my coloring „ a perpetual calendar in the shape of a flattened globe of the world. Still have it. But now, suddenly, grown-ups everywhere are coloring. And theres an explo-sion of coloring books directed towards their interests. Say goodbye to My Little Pony and Minions. Now there are coloring books for adults, with black outlined cats, but-terflies and flower patterns. There are religious-themed coloring books: Color the GospelsŽ and Color the Psalms,Ž for example. Books based on movie and TV shows are getting into the act too: Ive seen col-oring books for Dr. Who, Harry Potter and Game of Thrones.Ž But the ones that have been grabbing my attention lately arent ones Ive seen in local chain bookstores and supermarkets. I stumbled upon them online, and the more I looked into it, the more I found „ an entire universe of coloring books Ive never seen before. Lets put it this way: if coloring books were music, the adult coloring books Ive seen up to this point were easy-listening music. But the ones that have piqued my interest online are punk rock and rau-cous rock n roll. One series takes a realistic look at various professions „ nursing, teaching, motherhood. # NurselifeŽ is subtitled A Snarky Adult Coloring Book.Ž It contains over 30 sayings, each one contained within a flower border: Flor-ence Nightingale is my homegirlŽ is probably the least snarky one in the book. Others say: Behind every stable, well-adjusted nurse is a patient waiting to change that before the shift is over,Ž Dont confuse your Google search with my nursing degreeŽ and You cant fix stupid but you can sedate it.Ž And, some more medical humor: The way to a mans heart is through his left anterolateral thoracotomy.Ž And, as this is a year when we elect a new president, there are various coloring books about the candidates. Although theyre no longer in the running, you can still find color-ing books about Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz. Theres Hilary: The Coloring Book,Ž which has multiple Hilary Clintons on the cover, with a quartet of them wear-ing different-hued pant suits. It tells her history from her birth in Chicago to first lady to secretary of state to presidential candidate. And the last page shows her being sworn in as president, though the text for that image starts out, Who knows how things will go?Ž (The coloring book, by the way, was created by a Canadian and a Brit.) And, though she wasnt picked to be a vice presidential running mate, theres also Elizabeth Warren: The Peoples Warrior Fighting Against the Overwhelming Power of BIG MONEY in America Political Cartoon Coloring Book.Ž The images are disappointing, because, as the title says, theyre car-toons, and very amateurish ones at that. And I found The Ruth Bader Ginsburg Coloring Book: A Tribute to the Always Colorful and Often Inspiring Life of the Supreme Court Justice Known as RBG.Ž Its a strange book, on one page comparing her to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and on another mentioning that she and fellow justice Antonin Scalia were extras and performed in full costume in the opera Ariadne auf Naxo.Ž But the most entertaining by far has to be The Trump Coloring Book,Ž which shows Republican presidential nominee Don-ald Trump in a Superman outfit (with a T, instead of an S, of course,) standing with his hands on his hips on a rooftop. The books enormously clever, because it appeals to Trump-hat-ers and Trump devotees both. If you believe Mr. Trumps a great man wholl fix our countryŽ and make America great again,Ž then youll love the images of Trump in the oval office, or the one with his face on Mt. Rushmore, or the picture of him as Uncle Sam. But, if you think hes a narcissistic blowhard, then youll laugh at the images of him as Washington crossing the Potomac, his face replacing all four Beatles in the iconic Abbey Road photograph, or Mr. Trump as Elvis, as John Travolta in Saturday Night Fever,Ž and as Willy Wonka. Are you for or against? Its up to you! Nows your chance to show The Donald in his true colors!Ž says the back cover. And, in big, yellow-and-red comic book colors, it declares, Lets make coloring great again!Ž And then there are an entire series of swearing coloring books. If youre easily offended, you may want to skip the next paragraph or two, as the airs about to turn very blue. (We had to put in a special request to the edi-tors to buy more asterisks this week just to write this column!) There are coloring books called Scr*w You Im Coloring,Ž F*ck Off, Im Coloring!Ž Make Life Your B*tch,Ž Chill the F*ck Out,Ž Release Your Anger: An Adult Coloring Book with 40 Swear Words to Color,Ž I Dont Give a Damn Coloring Book,Ž Swearing Coloring BookŽ Fifty Shades of Bullsh*t,Ž I Love to F*cking Color And Relax With My Swear Word Adult Coloring BookŽ and The Vulgar Offensive Very Adult Color-ing Book: For Mature Audiences.Ž If anything will convince you that coloring books are not just for the very young anymore, that collection of curs-ing coloring books will.

This is part of how we do that.Ž RhinocerosŽ tells the story of a small French town whose residents begin to experience disconcerting run-ins with a raging rhinoceros. Events take an even stranger turn as one by one the citi-zens themselves are transformed into rhinoceroses. As the trampling animals destroy everything in their path one man remains, begging the question: Will he stay true to himself or follow the herd? Ms. Levasseur, a student at the Dreyfoos School of the Arts and a first-time director, said the play explores the themes and topics of conformity, peer pressure, culture, mass movements, mob mentality, philosophy and morality. It appealed to me because I like to think of pictures or ideas in my head when I read a play,Ž she said. When I first started researching Rhinoceros I really liked what it was about. I got a vision of it that I thought could work for this production.Ž The play is relevant to our time and to our students age base and Abbie had such a clear, specific idea of how she wanted the story to come to life,Ž Ms. Rowe said. That vision has really informed the other design elements as well. Ive done this play with teen-agers before and they get so excited about it, because they see themselves in the story. They see their peer group. They see their school and community. And the many symbols and underlying themes in the play are important for us to communicate.Ž Ms. Levasseur said one of the most valuable aspects of the Youth Artists Chair program is the opportunity to col-laborate with professionals. Im really excited, because as a firsttime director I get to work with design-ers and mentors,Ž she said. Im learning so much from people interested in art, just like I am.Ž She said one of her biggest challenges in directing RhinocerosŽ was in making certain staging decisions and incorpo-rating the symbolism into that. The themes of this play really challenge your mind,Ž she said. It makes you think. With absurdism, I believe you have to go very big with your choices, but the actors still need to keep the story grounded in truth.Ž The theme of staying true to ones self is a big part of what Ms. Levasseur hopes the audience will learn from this production. Its important to challenge conformity,Ž she said. Dont follow other peo-ples politics or peer groups just to fit in with them. I think our audience will see that theme is as important right now as it was when the play was first produced shortly after World War II. Its very easy to get caught up with what other people want rather than taking a stand for yourself.Ž Q KIDSFrom page 1 ‘RHINOCEROS’>> When: 7:30 p.m. Aug. 13 >> Where: Maltz Jupiter Theatre, 1001 E.

Military Trail, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410 Just north of PGA Blvd. on Military Trail LATEST FILMS‘Florence Foster Jenkins ’ +++ Is it worth $10? YesThe opening moments of every film are important, but theyve perhaps never been more important to a comedy than they are in Florence Foster Jenkins.Ž The film, which is based on true events, begins with Hugh Grants St. Clair Bayfield on stage reciting a HamletŽ soliloquy with great conviction, and then casually point-ing out that hes never played the title role himself. Its self-deprecating and honest, and therefore humorous. Moments later the titular Florence (Meryl Streep), attached to a wire, descends from above the stage to inspire her antebellum grandfather at the piano, and as she does so the crew back-stage visibly strains to hold her up. The tone is immediately clear: St. Clair and Florence are performers who take themselves seriously but arent particularly good at what they do. Because we like them, and their work is played for laughs, its OK to laugh at them without feeling like its mean-spirited, which is just right for this story. Based on true events, its New York City, 1944. As the war rages on overseas, the performing arts become essential relief for those at home. At the heart of the arts scene is Florence, a wealthy socialite who owns and runs The Verdi Club „ a Vaudeville type entertainment establishment „ with her husband, St. Clair. Florence wants to do more than merely act in sketches, so she hires a pianist (Simon Helberg) and vocal coach (David Haig) and trains to be an opera singer. Theres only one problem: shes terrible. Like, really hor-ribly awful. At the same time shes dying of syphilis and St. Clair wants her to ful-fill her dream of singing professionally, so he enables her and makes sure everyone around them does the same. As a result she becomes immensely popular for the wrong reason, and shes the only one oblivious to the truth. Florence may be the most famous atrocious singer in history, but director Stephen Frears (PhilomenaŽ) is too kind to suggest she lives in infamy. Instead he champions Florence, admires her courage and allows us to root for her in spite of her deluded shortcomings. Credit for this goes to Streep as well, of course. She doesnt go over the top in her performance, but her singing as Florence is nails-on-chalkboard grating enough to have you begging her to stop. Streep is nicely supported by Grant as a man who loves her but isnt in love with her, as is evident by his fierce devotion to Florence while simulta-neously keeping a separate apartment and girlfriend (Rebecca Ferguson). Below the surface of story is an essential question: Were St. Clair and others right to enable Florence to live out her dream as an opera singer, or should they have stopped her before she became too popular to spare her the potential embarrassment? You can make a case either way and be right, but that also means you can always be wrong. Its a credit to Frears and Grant that the decision St. Clair reaches feels like the right one. Youd think that given how much she loved music Florence had to know deep down that she was a dreadful singer, but reports suggest taking mercury for syphilis distorted her hearing. Regardless, if people always tell her shes good, why wouldnt she believe them? Florence Foster JenkinsŽ is very much the story of a lie for the right reason thats never morally ambiguous or overtly cruel, which is a filmmaking feat more difficult to accomplish than getting Florence to sing well. Its worth seeing for that admirable quality alone, though I dare-say youll enjoy all of it. Q dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Jenkins’ performance is the most requested recording in Carnegie Hall’s archives. FILM CAPSULESSuicide Squad ++1/2 (Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto) The worlds most dangerous crim-inals are given a reprieve from prison to fight a deadly witch (Cara Delevingne). Robbie steals the movie as Jokers (Leto) squeeze Harley Quinn, and the action and soundtrack keep things popping, but the story has numerous problems. Set in the same DC Comics universe as Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.Ž Rated PG-13.Jason Bourne ++1/2 (Matt Damon, Alicia Vikander, Tommy Lee Jones) Bourne (Damon) gets new information about his past and has to fight off the CIA agents (Vikan-der, Jones, Vincent Cassel) who want him dead. The story has head scratch-ing moments, but the action is tense and exciting. Make sure youre up to speed on the three previous Damon-led BourneŽ films or youll be lost. Rated PG-13.Caf Society +++ (Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Steve Carell) Twenty-something Bobby (Eisenberg) moves to L.A. and falls in love with his uncles (Carell) assis-tant (Stewart), then returns home to the Bronx to run a nightclub with his brother (Corey Stoll). Writer/director Woody Allen is in fine form as he pro-vides laughs and dramatic twists in this engaging coming of age tale set in an idyllic 1930s. Rated PG-13. Q

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 11-17, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYCultural Corridor,Ž says Mr. Barrero. We have a theater group going in next door, an auction house, studios, galleries, dance and Resource Depot. Its sl owly happening; we dont pay attention when some-thing is happening organically. From one day to another, people wake up and say, How did it happen? Thats because the press is usually geared to the pre-fabbed, CRA developments and the sanctioned things. But the Boynton Beach Arts Dis-trict grew organically; here its going to grow organically. Its nice when we have government-sanctioned areas, but this isnt a government-sanctioned area. Its happening organically just like it hap-pened in Boynton. Just like it happened in Lake Worth; the CRA could go crazy trying to develop on the other side of the tracks where they put those artists lofts, but that is not an organic growth sprawl, so they are having a difficult time getting it going. Down Lucerne (Avenue) it hap-pened organically. CRAs will accomplish it because eventually it does happen, but its easier when it happens organically.Ž Rolando began The Box Gallery in the slowest season of the year,Ž says Elle Schorr, another key player in the Palm Beaches art scene as an artist photogra-pher who also organizes the Art Salons at the Armory Art Center. He has so much energy and so many ideas and a different exhibition every month. Many of them have been juried and many people are submitting work to it. Hes doing special exhibitions that he is curating himself or bringing in a guest curator. Hes doing things with musicians and filmmakers and performance arts. Hes really trying to bring the arts of all kinds from this area to a place where they can be seen and enjoyed and appreciated.Ž Born in Miami to a Chinese mother and Cuban father, Mr. Barrero graduated from Miami-Dade College and went on to the Chicago Art Institute for a bachelor of fine arts degree. His eclectic career includes being a curator for Miami-Dade College, a flight attendant traveling the world with art studios based in New York, Denver and Miami, a window dresser, model, graphic designer and, of course, a lifelong artist. After literally flying high,Ž he was plunged into a decade-long abyss with a brain tumor. Eventually, surger-ies and treatments later, he emerged to resume life as an artist activist and moved to West Palm Beach. There is something missing in this area that I want,Ž says Mr. Barrero. Its actually very personal. I want to see progressive art and lectures. Theres really no concentra-tion on new, contemporary discussions. I grew up in the Miami Dade downtown sys-tem where everything had to be validated in order to get funding. Also, I am accustomed to looking at art differently; not just going to white-wall galleries as a store where you go purchase art. I am used to going to art spac-es where art lives. The discussions, where there are roundtables and there is context and content. I didnt find it here and I kept looking for it. But instead of complaining, I just started doing it. In addition,Ž he says, theres a definitely a paradigm shift that is going on in the development of the city in art and culture, in architecture. None of these three towns can be seen as fishing villages anymore. They are turning into world-class cities. And with that, there is a lot of money being invested in the development of the city, primarily West Palm Beach, and with that will come an increase in a population that expects world-class art. So the galleries will follow and I think that we will see a big shift in the next year or two, and a much stronger, more vibrant art scene will start developing. A lot of the local artists that have been hungry for recognition will get a chance to see themselves in the limelight much faster than they expected. Artists located geographically need to prepare for national attentionƒ because its coming,Ž Mr. Barrero says. Theres a lot of good talent here. They shouldnt be putting off completing their bodies of work sooner than later. Its going to hap-pen.Ž West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Tuzzolino Muoio agreed. Having a thriving and robust arts community creates the balance that makes our city great. Being a world-class city means nourishing the soul as well as the economy. The Box Gal-lery is a new integral part of what makes West Palm Beach great,Ž he says. Instead of calling artists in the area local artists,Ž Mayor Tuzzolino calls them culturally relevantŽ local artists. He says, The word local is second-ary. Where you paint has nothing to do with your talent. Artists probably never received the attention that they deserved because of geographic location. Now as we shift into another time of history in this area as it develops, artists will receive those accolades and recognition in spite of their geographic location.Ž He adds, however, that there is a problem in our area. The papers and publi-cations lack the staff for critical writing about art. There are no regular colum-nists anymore. If there is no writing or critical review of their work, artists will leave. They thirst for am I doing some-thing right, am I good?Ž Ms. Schorr thinks what Mr. Barrero is doing is trying to refocus people on awareness to the idea of an arts district. In fact, the Armory Art Center has a huge amount to offer in the area and is right around the corner from him. The Norton Museum of Art is just down the street, and it is going through this amazing expansion. Once it completely reopens in two years, it will be an amazing art desti-nation for the entire region. So, in a sense, The Box Gallery is on the road that links these and is becoming an art destination in itself. It is the beginning of linking in peoples minds that whole area as an art destination. Gradually, overtime I hope that more artists will take advantage of the idea and add themselves to the mix. I think he has given us a very dynamic and inclusive new venue to show and perform our work that just wasnt there before. There are so many ways an artist can participate in one or more of his dif-ferent shows. Rolando is increasing the dialogue by having lectures at his gallery. Its all very new; a year from now well be able to look back on it and say Wow!Ž When asked how he accomplishes so much, Mr. Barrero responds, I dont sleep. You ask someone who smokes why do they smoke so much. They have to smoke. When you have an addiction, you smoke. This is my addiction. I love what I do; I love to paint; I love to make art, cre-ate art, I like to show other peoples art. It just feeds me. It only comes naturally to me that when I do something, I want everybody to know. You cant throw a party for one; its boring.Ž Q ARTISTFrom page 1 KATIE DEITS / FLORIDA WEEKLYArtist Rolando Chang Barrero is making a big impact in the Palm Beach County art scene. “Las Orishas de Cuba,” an exhibition of paintings and woodblocks by Cuban artist, Alberto Piloto Pedroso, will be on exhibit through Aug. 30 at The Box Gallery at 811 Belvedere Road, West Palm Beach. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 11-17, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15The Dish: Tomato Surprise The Place: Greens Pharmacy, 151 N. County Road, Palm Beach; 832-4443. The Price: $9.99 The Details: President Kennedy dined here, and you can too. Little of the ambience appears to have changed at Greens, from the Formica counter and tabletops to the menu of comfort fare from another era. This chicken salad platter would have been popular among the Camelot crowd. A large, ripe, juicy tomato packed with chicken salad and set atop a bed of iceberg lettuce, sliced bell peppers and cucumbers and shredded carrots. The chicken salad was chunky and fresh, and the veggies were crisp, cool-ing me down on a hot summer day. Q „ Scott Simmons Growing up in Mexico, Juan Toledo thought his future was truly up in the air. All he ever thought about was becoming a helicopter pilot. But a funny thing hap-pened to him after moving to Florida 16 years ago and working in a restaurant. Everything changed. I got caught in the kitchen and I loved it,Ž said Chef Toledo, executive chef at Nitrogen Bar, Grille and Sushi in Jupiter. I never thought I would be cooking, but once I did it, I loved it. I love the rush.Ž His first job was in the kitchen was at City Club in Juno Beach. He remembers everyone working at such a fast pace and he got caught up in it all. Thats where I learned the basics,Ž said Chef Toledo. Most of his cooking experience came from working at Italian restaurants. I was at Forte in West Palm Beach for a year and Buonasera Ristorante in Jupi-ter for nine years,Ž he said. At Buonasera, Chef Leonardo Cuomos had a big influ-ence on him. He most recently worked at Per Te Ristorante in Jupiter. He came to Nitrogen, which opened a year ago, to learn to cook something different for him, Asian and Latin Fusion with a twist. Chef Toledo encourages customers to open their minds and try something new. We have good burgers, but theres so much more,Ž he said. A good time to taste something different is from the restaurants new social hour menu with handcrafted sips ($7) created by mixologist and bar manager David Brouchard and small bites ($7) by Chef Toledo. Customers can choose from Elote Mexican street corn and cucumber sashi-mi lollipops,Ž to pr osciutto -wrapped tempura asparagus and sweet potato tempura. The Social Hour is really working out,Ž Chef Toledo said. People come for small bites and nice drink. They love it.Ž Unlike some kitchens Chef Toledo has worked in, he says this one is not a dicta-torship, but more of a democracy. I like ideas from everyone,Ž he said, praising the work of his colleagues „ Sushi Chef Justin Zhang and Pastry Chef Thomas Chaleu. Were a team,Ž he said, a good mix of culture and ideas.Ž Chef Toledo, 30, and his wife, Jessica, live in Tequesta with their two children Juan, 10, and Zoe, 2. At home, Chef Toledo enjoys making a Mexican dish called mole. It has 70 ingredients, he said, including nuts and seeds, chiles and vegetables. Hes working on perfecting his mole recipe but says theres someone at his house „ his wife „ who makes it best. She leaves me in the dust,Ž he said.One day, Chef Toledo hopes to open his own Mexican restaurant, like nobody around here has,Ž he said. And about that early desire to become a helicopter pilot, he still would like to do that, too. For now, that goal is still up in the air. Juan ToledoAge: 30 Original Hometown: Michoacn, Mexico Restaurant: Nitrogen Bar, Grill & Sushi; 6779 W. Indiantown Road, Jupiter; 972-2944 or nitrogen.com. Mission: To open my own restaurant, and perfect the art of authentic Mexican cuisine. Cuisine: Italian, Asian, and Latin fusion with a twist. Training: Self-taught with no formal training. Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? Clogs. What advice would you give someone who wants to be a restaurateur or chef? Always work hard and be open to learning new techniques. Be the first one in and the last one out. If you love what you do and have a strong team, youll go far in this business.
