COMMENTARYField of dreams The 2016 Summer Olympic Games are the ultimate summer distraction, the perfect antidote to all the unpleasant news ubiquitous just now. It is a delight to lose yourself in watching Team USA compete with hundreds of other super-lative athletes from around the world. Our hometown Olympians demonstrate the depth of our countrys well of inspi-ration „ for passion, courage, integrity, resolve, str ength, grace and joy. The games display the breadth of the worlds diversity, come together in a brief moment, as one international community. It is humankind competing to be the best it can be, in contests that challenge all the physical, mental and emotional resources humanly available. The dramas that unfold revive faith and optimism in our common, global aspira-tion to rise above our limitations. The United States is well represented by a 554-member team of men and women consisting of the best of the best athletes our country has to offer. They come from every corner of the nation and take part in the majority of sports featured during the games. The Miami Herald also notes South Florida has contributed its own delega-tion of athletes, all of whom have South Florida ties. It includes 21 athletes com-peting for Team USA and 20 competing on behalf of other countries. The athletes work for the invite, earning the honor after devoting years of sacrifice, discipline and hard work. Olympiads are the young on their way to the limits of what a body can do in its prime, and for the veterans of past games, their will to be there stretching beyond their bodies ability to say no. And, oh, the stories of their journey. Its a road of highs and lows that leads to the field of dreams where legends are born. For every medal taken home, hun-dreds experience the heartbreak of what might have been. Yet to have competed at all is a remarkable achievement. The overall number of women athletes participating in the games has grown, including countries that have never before allowed or sent women to compete. Per-haps its no surprise, but the U.S. sent this year more women to the Olympics than any other nation in Olympics history. So says the U.S. Olympic Committee, noting the U.S. roster is comprised of 262 men and 292 women. They competed in 27 different sports across 40 disciplines; and 244 of the 306 medal events. It has been a long slog for women to achieve more equitable participation in the games. They face three pillars of resistance: that women should be allowed to participate at all, when facing total exclusion; that women should be allowed to participate in sports desig-nated as men-only, such as marathons; and that women should be allowed to compete with male athletes in sports that dont require speed and strength, such as marksmanship. The Wall Street Journal says women athletes still didnt achieve parity with male athletes in the Rio Olympics. That is because mens events outnumber womens events within the same sport and the prevalence of men-only compe-titions. There are downstream effects: Before the first buzzer sounds, men are assured of walking away with more than 55 percent of the gold, silver and bronze medallions awarded. I confess disappointment but not surprise at this revelation. After all, exclud-ing women from the games goes back to when Zeus threw thunderbolts to roast whatever Greek upstart provoked his ire. But that wasnt all: Women flirted with execution simply for taking up the Olympics as a spectator sport, drawn by the display of all those near-naked Adonises flexing their abs. But, really, what alternative did women have? Well, they could start a stable. In the ancient Olympics, a womans only avenue forward was to own and enter horses in equestrian events. Even then, they had to stay home, denied the right to observe the contests. Beyond her prowess in robbing her husbands purse to purchase the nags, a womans equestrian abilities played no role, and if her steeds won their events, she was barred from the celebrations. It must have been a bitter pill. The only thing these women got for their Olympian aspirations was a lousy T-shirt. Women didnt get another opportunity to challenge the games men-only policy until the re-emergence of the modern Olympics in 1896. They were unsuccessful so they orchestrated a sep-arate Womens OlympicsŽ to keep hope alive. The breakthrough came in 1900 at the Paris Olympics, when womens golf and lawn tennis events were added. Women were excluded from track and field until 1928, the year womens events in gymnastics were added. It took 60 more years before the Olympics included a womens distance race; then came weightlifting (2000), wrestling (2004) and boxing (2012). Equestrian events are the only Olympic sport featuring coed teams and indi-vidual events that pit women against men. Women have taken home 25 of the total of 45 metals awarded since 1996. I guess that lousy T-shirt counted for something after all. Q „ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

It almost doesnt qualify as a protest or a riot if Pool isnt live-streaming from the streets. But he is pulling out of Milwaukee because it is too dangerous for white people. In a carefully stated YouTube video, Pool described the verbal taunts and threats, as well as actual violence, directed at whites. After an 18-year-old male was shot in the neck and extracted by Milwaukee police in an armored vehicle „ Pool identifies the victim as white, although other press reports dont mention his race „ he concluded he had to leave. (For the record, Pool is half Korean „ not that rioters care.) The Milwaukee unrest has taken on a more explicitly racist cast than other riots after officer-involved shootings. After Ferguson, the anti-police move-ment famously adopted the slogan Hands up, dont shoot.Ž If it were to take its next catchphrase from Milwau-kee, it might be (per Pools reporting) f*** white people.Ž In other officer-involved shootings or deaths that have occasioned unrest, there has at least been a colorable case that the police acted wrongfully. In Mil-waukee, a black officer shot an armed man, 23-year-old Sylville Smith, who by all accounts ran from his car after a traffic stop and defied an order to drop his (stolen) gun. The officer wore a body camera, and the police chief says the video shows Smith raising his gun before the cop shot him dead. Presumably we will see the entire video and know more soon enough, but its not hard to believe that Smith was capable of recklessly threatening the officer. His long rap sheet is the story, in microcosm, of why inner-city communi-ties are so miserably unlivable, and need to be policed so intensely. Smiths mother says her son got his gun because he had been shot twice and robbed four times. Three people were murdered last weekend within blocks of where the officer shot Smith on Sat-urday afternoon, and five people were killed in total over a nine-hour period Friday night and Saturday morning. The routine carnage is, of course, never the occasion for rioting. The Milwaukee disorder is another stark illustration of how often the agi-tation over police-involved shootings fades into a noxious nihilism, heedless of the facts or reason. Burning down neighborhood business establishments, throwing bricks at cops, trashing police cars and chasing white people „ all features of the Milwaukee riots „ may feel good, but they are simply more symptoms of the social breakdown that police are asked to respond to every day. Even if the cops conduct themselves perfectly in such communities, there will inevitably be tensions and tragedies that dont occur in more orderly places where young men arent so often the perpetrators „ and victims „ of crime. The deeper question in the debate over policing is how we can keep the lives of so many young men like Sylville Smith from sliding off the rails. But trying to answer it doesnt hold the satisfaction of smashing windows, or pro-vide ready fodder for cable TV debates. And so the beat, drearily, goes on. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly OPINION Lang may his lum reekAugust 24, 1925. Ninety-one years ago, today. So what?I can answer that question. Look at the blood coming out of the newest scratch on your kids knee, or the little paring-knife slice in your finger. Someone deeply, closely related to you lives in that blood. Someone who was alive on Aug. 24, 1925, just like William Kilpatrick Jr. Faulkner was right: The past is not dead. Its not even past. By the end of that late-summer Monday in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y., Bill had arrived in a world between wars „ unfortunately. Both he and his late older brother, Mac-gregor Kilpatrick, a 1939 graduate of the Naval Academy, would get into the next one all the way. He took his first breath only five years before a Great Depression, only six weeks before the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Washington Senators in the World Series, and with Calvin Coolidge manning the White House. Although it was a Monday, The New York Times managed to squeeze 13 stories onto its front page, probably aiming to overwhelm the many other dailies sold in the Big Apple. Soviet Exiles Moscow Jewelers to Siberia,Ž the headlines read. Republi-cans Open Campaign Tonight: Bennett and Waterman issue statements declaring Waterman is not a Republican.Ž Phil-ips Guarded, Conspiracy Denied, Charges ridiculed by private detective ƒ Carries a loaded pistol all day.Ž And for the techies, Briton Sends Radio (Concert) Program 14,000 miles to U.S.S. Seattle.Ž But the Times didnt just do news. One learned from the Aug. 24 edition that you could sublet a 410-square-foot fireproof office on 34th Street overlooking the Hudson River for a year, for $75; that The Wanderer,Ž a Paramount Picture, was playing twice daily at the Criterion Theatre on Broadway and 44th Street, with Tyrone Power, Greta Nissen and Wallace Beery; that you could get a Hud-son Seal trimmed coat (dried Northern Muskrat) for $245; a room in Philadel-phias Rittenhouse Hotel for $2 a night, or $2.50 with a bath; and a four-piece golf suit from Sanger on Fifth Avenue for $25 to $35. The suit was made on site, of course. Among the want ads for nurses and handymen on the day Bill was born, this one appeared in fine print: MALE … Chef … First class pastry and salad man, new cafeteria in Florida; State age, nationality. Write W.M. Carnasion, Royal Palm Cafete-ria, Ft. Myers, Fla.Ž Unbeknownst to Bill Kilpatrick „ nowadays a Lee County resident, a father and grandfather, a career writer and former editor of one stripe or another at Parade, Popular Mechanics, True, Field & Stream and others, not to mention a retired NewsPress columnist and writing coach „ he had his first Florida connection. The ad was a little wink of fate, perhaps, delivered from the region he would someday share for decades with his now late, beloved wife, Phyllis. Mrs. Kilpatrick died earlier this year.When Bill was born to Fannie Louise Speechly Kilpatrick (and may we pause here to thank her for doing such good work), golf became part of his life. His father, William Kilpatrick, had been born in Dumfries and raised in St. Andrews, Scotland, where love of the game is probably genetic. In 1925, he was superintendent of the course at the Sun-ningdale Country Club, in Scarsdale. Bills 2011 book from the University of Nebraska Press, Brassies, Mashies & Bootleg Scotch,Ž is a memoir of life with the old man, much of it spent on or around golf courses. But his father was not only a golfer. Before World War I, the old man served in the famous Scots fighting regiment, The Black Watch. During the war, he joined the U.S. Army, serving in France and becom-ing an American citizen.Then and now, the Kilpatricks retained a Bobby Jones ethical world view: At the 1925 U.S. Open, Jones hit a shot that fell into the deep rough of the embankment on the 11th green at Worcester. As he prepared to hit out, his club brushed the grass near the ball, which in turn touched the ball. Jones insisted on penalizing himself, ultimately costing him a victory in the Open that year. In Bills case, he joined the Army Air Force and trained as a gunner, then shipped out to England in the last bloody year of the war. Falling ill „ offered a chance to remain grounded while his beat-en-up squadron continued to fight „ he insisted on flying combat missions in the glass bubble at the nose of a B-17 bomber, checked out and pressed into duty as a togglier (a bombardier). He was 19. On his eighth mission, he was blown out of his seat by shrapnel and badly wounded. But he crawled back into the seat, re-attached his oxygen and delivered the bombs on target while a navigator sat nearby, frozen with fear and unable to help. The pilot descended a ladder from the cockpit, bandaged the worst wound to save his life, gave him morphine and flew the damaged plane home. Bill spent months in hospitals and can still feel those wounds. A single Purple Heart is framed on a wall in his home, but youll never see him parad-ing in uniforms or wearing any medals.His older brother, meanwhile, flew fighter planes in the Pacific, including off the U.S.S. Franklin, later badly damaged by a kamikaze. He shot down five enemy aircraft, became an ace and won both the Navy Cross (the nations second-highest medal for valor) and the Distinguished Flying Cross. Later in life he graduated from Yale Law School and became chief counsel for the American Hockey League (Macgregor is now in the American Hock-ey League Hall of Fame). Its been 91 years today, and all of its in the blood, his and ours. Lang may his lum reek „ long may his chimney smoke. And long may the fire below it burn bright. Q roger

MARTY BECKERUniversal UclickWho doesnt love chocolate? Its the stuff of celebrations, holidays and romance. Its filled with feel-good chemicals, and theres even evidence that its good for our health. Dogs love chocolate as much as we do, based on the number of stories Ive heard about canines who crave the sweet stuff. Just about every week, I see or hear from clients whose dogs have gotten into a box of designer chocolates or a bag of Snickers bars or M&Ms. I even remember one Christmas when my brother Bobbys late Yorkie, Buddy, ate an entire 1-pound box of Godiva chocolates. But while dogs who OD on chocolate might get the same flavor enjoyment from it that we do, its not so good for their health. Chocolate contains both caffeine and a substance called theobromine. Both are plant alkaloids, mildly stimulating to humans, but toxic to dogs, who arent able to process theobromine as efficiently as humans. Now, I hear stories all the time about dogs who suffer no ill effects after eating a whole batch of homemade fudge, a bag of Hersheys kisses, a chocolate muffin or cookies dipped in dark chocolate. Thats because chocolates toxic effects „ known as chocolate toxicosis „ vary depending on the size of the dog, the amount and type of chocolate eaten, and individual sensitivity. Small dogs, like 6-pound Buddy, are at greater risk than the typical 100-pound Labrador retriever. And dogs who eat choc-olate candy adulterated with lots of sugar are usually less at risk than those sophisti-cated canines who ingest high-quality dark chocolate. The darker and more bitter the chocolate, the more toxic it is,Ž says Justine Lee, DVM, whos double board-certified in toxicology and emergency and critical-care medicine. White and milk chocolate have less theobromine, the poisonous chemical, compared to baking chocolate.Ž That doesnt mean that milk chocolate is necessarily safe. One ounce of milk chocolate per pound of body weight is a potentially lethal dose in dogs. Usually, when dogs down too much chocolate, they vomit it back up. If they ate a 2-pound bag of M&Ms, you might come home to rainbow-colored vomit on your carpet. Sometimes the evidence comes out the other end. Barbara Davis of Corona, Cali-fornia, had an English springer spaniel with a chocolate fetish. One time she consumed an entire sack of Kraft Fudgies, including the little gold plastic wrappers,Ž Davis says. At that time I was living in Manhattan, and it raised quite a few eyebrows as people observed my dog pooping gold in the curb on 52nd Street.Ž If theyre going to have a problem, most dogs start to vomit, have diarrhea or become unusually thirsty within six to 12 hours of ingesting chocolate. Restlessness and a distended abdomen are also signs. More severe side effects such as seizures, a racing heart (tachycardia) and high or low blood pressure can also occur. Death by chocolate isnt just the name of a dessert. Dogs who are highly sensitive to theobromine or who ingest the more toxic dark forms of chocolate, such as cocoa powder or unsweetened baking chocolate, can die from cardiac arrhythmias, hyper-thermia or respiratory failure.Another factor is the possible presence of xylitol, a sugar alcohol, in some chocolate products. Its highly toxic to dogs and may be of more concern than the chocolate itself.My brothers dog Buddy indeed needed a trip to the veterinary clinic, but Im happy to report that he survived the incident.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYer in presidential contests. Go figure. Long gone are the days when the state was Americas dowdy, predictable, blue-haired grandparent „ concerned princi-pally with early bird specials, Lawrence Welk reruns, Metamucil and shuffle-board. Florida of the 21st century is an ethnically riven, politically splintered, polyglot mega-state. It is the Salvador Dali of democracy „ flamboyant, out-rageous, gaudy, surreal and thoroughly confounding. Now „ 16 years after the embarrassing and infamous voter recount, 16 years after Bush v. Gore, 16 years after Floridas electoral votes handed the Oval Office to George W. Bush „ Florida once again is in a position to play the deciding role in who becomes the next president of the United States. A close race is anticipated, and theres nothing new there. Florida is accus-tomed to them. Forget the 2000 elec-tion for the moment. Just four years ago President Obama defeated Mitt Romney in Florida, 50 percent to 49.1 percent, making it the only state to be decided by less than 1 percent. Floridians relish cliffhangers. The campaigns of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have zeroed in on the state, as well they should. Floridas 29 electoral votes (the fourth most in the Electoral College) comprise more than 10 percent of the 270 needed to win. Although Republicans dominate in races for statewide offices, Florida is one of those rare places where „ when it comes to national elections „ both the Republican and Democratic par-ties have a fighting chance to carry the day. This curious political dichotomy between statewide and national elections is explained by Darryl Paulson, emeritus professor of government at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. In voting, self interest becomes very important,Ž he said. When it comes to state government, Floridians generally want no frills. They want to get govern-ment off their backs. The federal govern-ment is another story. Florida looks for the federal government to be involved. The voters are concerned about things like health care, Social Security and Medicare. These are crucial issues.Ž The states explosive growth and ethnically rich electorate enhance its clout. Politically, it is the personification of a bellwether state, and its influence con-tinues to grow. Every census since 1930 has resulted in the state gaining at least one electoral vote, and the number is increasing rap-idly. At the end of World War II, Florida had eight electoral votes. In 1964, it was 14. By 1976, the tally stood at 17. In 2000, it reached 25, and it was 27 in 2008. Florida got two more electoral votes under the U.S. Census Bureau congressional appor-tionment process of 2010, for its current total. Texas was the only other state to receive more than one electoral vote as a result of the 2010 apportionment. Influxes of Cubans, retirees, service workers to the theme park economy booming near Orlando and other groups have resulted in a state much more diversified „ both economically and politically „ than many of its southern brethren,Ž the 270toWinŽ website point-ed out. As a result, although still leaning slightly Republican, Florida is today seen as perhaps the ultimate battleground state, its population a microcosm of the country as a whole. This reputation was enhanced by the closeness of the 2000 election, where it took a month of legal wrangling to decide the winner.Ž The two parties in Florida are almost evenly divided when it comes to presi-dential elections,Ž said Peter Berger-son, professor of political science and public administra-tion at Florida Gulf Coast University. If you look back over the last three or four presidential elec-tions, both parties have had a chance to win and indeed have won.Ž In the last 40 years, Florida has voted Democratic four times (1976, 1996, 2008, 2012) and Republican six times (1980, 1984, 1988, 1992, 2000, 2004). Tellingly, Florida went with the general-election winner in nine of those elections, with the only exception coming in 1992, when it backed incumbent George H.W. Bush over Bill Clinton. Since 1976, Floridas voter registration statistics, as compiled by the states Division of Elections, reveal a startling realignment in the electorate. In 1976, there were about 1.1 million registered Republicans, 2.7 million Dem-ocrats and 204,000 classified as other.Ž Ten years later, there were 2 million Republicans, 3.2 million Democrats and 377,604 others. In 1996, the gap between the two parties had closed dramatically, with 3.2 million Republicans, 3.7 million Democrats and 1 million others. By 2006 there were 3.9 million Republicans, 4.1 million Democrats and 2.2 million oth-ers. This year, the figures stand at 4.4 million Republicans, 4.6 million Demo-crats and 3.2 million others. Thus, presidential candidates in present-day Florida face a daunting task. They must solidify their partys base, while at the same time woo a massive bloc of unaffiliated voters whose politi-cal affinities seem to change with the wind. Mr. Trump and Ms. Clinton both claim strengths within the state. Mr. Trump, a New Yorker, considers Florida „ and more specifically Palm Beach „ to be a second home, and he has extensive business interests in Palm Beach County. The real estate baron also has the endorsement of prominent Republican officeholders, including Attorney General Pam Bondi, Gov. Rick Scott and Sen. Marco Rubio, Mr. Trumps onetime rival for the nomination. Ms. Clinton, who enjoys the support of popular U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson (the only Democrat who holds a statewide office), views Florida as an essential element of what she hopes to be a winning coalition of minority voters and other traditional Democrats. Long a swing state prized for (its) electoral votes ... and a dependable source of Democratic campaign cash, Florida this year is also an important part FLORIDAFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOSIn 2000, Al Gore was defeated in Florida by 537 votes, and that meant the election went to George W.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2016 NEWS A9 of Clintons strategy to turn out large numbers of Latino voters,Ž The Washington Post wrote earlier this month. Mr. Trumps harsh rhetoric regarding immigrants, especially those from Mexico, has created problems for him within Floridas His-panic community. Along these lines, Mr. Trump suffered an embarrassing set-back not long ago when the director of communications for the Florida Republi-can Party, Wadi Gai-tan (who is Hispanic), resigned because of disagreements with the nominee. Mr. Gaitan, who leaves the GOP to join the conservative grassroots organization LIBRE, made no attempt to disguise his feelings toward the billionaire candidate. Im thankful for my almost two years with the Florida GOP, however, mov-ing on gives me a great opportunity to continue promoting free-market solu-tions while avoiding efforts that support Donald Trump,Ž he said in a written statement. QQQ ITH ABOUT 2 MONTHS LEFT UNTIL THE general election, the race in Florida is tanta-lizingly close. Most polls have Ms. Clinton with a lead. These samplings indicate that while Florida voters have serious reservations about Mr. Trump as a candidate, Ms. Clin-ton has been unable to fully capitalize on her opponents liabilities „ or beat down the nega-tives associated with her character. A CBS poll released Aug. 14 showed Ms. Clinton lead-ing Mr. Trump in Florida, 45 percent to 40 percent. In June, this same poll pegged her lead at three points. Monmouth University conducted a Florida survey that was released two days later and it gave Ms. Clinton a larger advantage, 48 percent to 39 percent, over Mr. Trump. CBS poll revealed that 54 percent of Florida voters call Trumps controversial comments generally irresponsible.Ž He also receives poor marks as a poten-tial commander-in-chief. Yet Mr. Trump scores high on the ability to bring change (66 percent to 37 percent for Ms. Clin-ton). About half of the respondents gave Ms. Clinton poor marks for honesty and said the controversy surrounding her emails troubled them. According to the Monmouth poll, only 36 percent of Flori-da voters view Ms. Clinton favorably „ a tenuous and precarious position for any frontrunner. The debates begin next month, and there could be an October surpriseŽ involving more damaging leaks concern-ing Ms. Clintons emails or even a ter-rorist attack. Nothing is set in stone. It is against this backdrop that Florida is poised to become Americas power broker. As The New York Times pointed out, Florida is the state most likely to pro-vide the deciding vote in the 2016 elec-tion.Ž Florida, Ohio and Penn sylv ania are shaping up to be three of the most critical battleground states,Ž The Timesobserved. These states are in fact the three most likely to provide the elec-toral vote that tips the elec-tion to the winner.Ž The newspaper „ in a story on its website headlined Florida is Most Likely to Be the Election Tipping PointŽ „ gave Florida a 17 percent chance of determining the winner, followed by Pennsylv ania at 11 percent and Ohio at 10 percent. QQQFTEN OVERLOOKED IN THE 2016 RACE in Florida is the role the Libertarian Party can-didate Gary Johnson, formerly governor of New Mexico, might play. If past is prologue in Florida, Mr. Johnson could be instrumen-tal in shaping the outcome, for the state has proved hos-pitable to third-party candidates in past elections. George Wallace, the late Alabama governor, drew 28 percent of the states vote in the 1968 gen-eral election. Twen-ty-four years later, Texas tycoon Ross Perot got almost 20 percent of the ballots cast in Florida. And it has been argued that in 2000, Ralph Nader, the consumer activist, siphoned just enough votes from Al Gore to cost the Tennessean the election. But for (Mr. Naders) 97,488 votes in Florida ... Al Gore probably would be finishing his second term,Ž George Will wrote in 2007. Gallup, the polling organization, stud-ied the 2000 election in Florida and drew the same conclusion as Mr. Will. Nader received almost 100,000 votes in Florida in 2000, a state George W. Bush won by 537 votes over Al Gore,Ž the Gallup News Service said in an analysis published in 2004. Gallups pre-election polls as well as exit polls showed that Nader voters were more likely to support Gore than Bush. If Nader had not run that year, it is reasonable to assume that enough of a majority of Nader votes would have been cast for Gore, giving him Floridas electoral votes and the presidency.Ž Harry Evans, a prominent Democratic fundraiser, summed up his partys frus-tration in 2000 by saying, I want to kill Ralph Nader.Ž This antipathy directed toward Mr. Nader is understandable but perhaps overstated. Truth is, Mr. Gore and the Democratic Party performed horribly in Florida. Mr. Nader did not help things, of course, but a close analysis of the race shows that Mr. Gore was capable of blowing the election all by his lonesome. Mr. Gore lost the over-65 vote by 67,000 votes. White women supported Mr. Bush by a 53-44 percent margin. Exit polls also revealed that 308,000 self-described Democrats and 191,000 self-described liberals favored Mr. Bush over Mr. Gore. Clearly, Mr. Nader was not the sole reason that Mr. Gore lost Florida and thus the presidency. Some are quick to point out that Mr. Gore was a wooden campaigner almost totally devoid of charm and charisma. That is true. But the same can be said of Ms. Clinton, who continues to baffle and frustrate many voters with her inability to fashion a coherent, consistent expla-nation for her email woes and for the influence the Clinton Foundation exert-ed within the State Department during her tenure as its secretary. Mr. Paulson, the USF government professor, noted that a third-party candidacy might not play as well this time around in Florida. Yes, it is true that weve never had two major party can-didates who are both so disliked and dis-trusted by voters,Ž Mr. Paulson said. But for a third party to do well, you must have a strong, well-known person at the top of the ticket.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYidential candidate), but these two men are not well known outside of their own states. That is different from past third-party efforts. People knew who George Wallace, Ross Perot and Ralph Nader were.Ž Mr. Trumps appeal is unusual, to say the least. His campaign to date is almost that of a third-party candidate in that he is not viewed as a traditionalŽ Republi-can and indeed has raised the ire of many mainstream elements within the GOP. Stewart Lytle, a Boston-based journalist and novelist who extensively covered George Wallace back in the day, said Mr. Trump evokes many of the same pas-sions elicited by the fire-breathing popu-list from Alabama. I know Florida has changed dramatically since 1968, but if you listen to Trump, you hear many of the same themes that George Wallace employed so effectively in the state, especially in North Florida, around the Panhandle,Ž Mr. Lytle said. There is this constant refrain from Trump that elites in both business and government are out to screw you. That the system is rigged and that the people who run the system are incompetent, ineffective and corrupt. One of Wallaces signature lines was that pointy-headed intellectuals and bureau-crats in Washington carry briefcases. If you opened these briefcases, Wallace said, all you would find is a baloney sandwich. Thats not too far off what Donald Trump is preaching now, and if you believe the polls, a lot of people in Florida are still buying it „ decades after George Wallace has disappeared from the scene.Ž Mr. Paulson asserts that a good oldfashioned ground game (e.g., working the phones, going door-to-door to solicit votes, providing transportation on elec-tion day) will probably determine the winner in Florida. Mr. Trump, though, disdains such commonsense declarations. Reverting to his recurring role as the kamikaze candidate, he told Fox News not long ago: I dont know that we need to get out the vote. I think people that really want to vote are going to get out, and they are going to vote for Trump.Ž As Mr. Trumps curious observation would indicate, Ms. Clinton possesses a decided edge when it comes to cam-paign strategy and organization. In a Wall Street Journal poll released this month, 52 percent of Floridas voters said they viewed Ms. Clinton negatively. Yet 92 percent of self-described Democrats said they support her. Mr. Trumps sup-port among Republicans was 79 percent, a paltry figure, which gives Ms. Clinton a clear-cut advantage with her partys base. Moreover, Ms. Clinton has bombarded Mr. Trump with caustic television spots, which have largely gone unanswered by her Republican opponent. And Mr. Trumps post-convention performance may be the worst in modern history. But for all that, Ms. Clinton is still in a real fight to win Florida, which suggests that any major slips on her part could prove to be fatal. For the moment, she retains the upper hand. My sense right now is that she has a wider pathway to the White House than Trump,Ž said Mr. Bergerson, the FGCU professor. QQQ LORIDA SEEMS READY IN 2016 TO WRITE another wild chapter in its book of presidential history. Even when it was little more than a tangled mass of mangroves and swampland, with more alligators than humans, Florida, which became a state in 1845, somehow found a way to insinuate itself into national elections Florida participated in its first presi-dential election in 1848, when it went for Zachary Taylor, a Whig who was the last non-Republican or non-Democrat to win a general elec-tion. Floridas direct involvement in national elections was halted when it seceded in 1861 and joined the Confederate States of Amer-ica. As a secessionist state, Florida was not eligible, of course, to partici-pate in the election of 1864, when Abra-ham Lincoln sought re-election. The Civil War ensured that the election would be chaotic and without precedent. It is remarkable that there was even an election held,Ž said Joan Waugh, a historian at UCLA. The confusion surrounding the 1864 election, in hindsight, seems to have muddled and undermined Lincolns judgment, leading him to make one of the most egregious political and military miscalculations of his presidency. And Florida lay at the heart of this presidential morass. Lincoln was convinced the election would be exceedingly close and that he would need every electoral vote he could muster. He and his political advisers rather amazingly calculated that Flori-das three measly electoral votes (which is the number it would have had if it had remained in the Union) could be crucial. (According to the 1860 census, Florida was the most sparsely settled state of the Confederacy, with a population of just 140,000 people „ 61,000 of whom were slaves. Georgia, by comparison, had a population of slightly more than 1 million with 460,000 slaves.) The presidents political and military advisers convinced him Florida was there for the re-taking, persuading him that pro-Union sentiment ran high with-in the state. Florida could be returned to the United States if Lincoln acted decisively and with force, these wrong-headed counselors insisted. None of this was true, but the beleaguered Lincoln took the bait. Acting on this ill-conceived advice, he approved a military operation in Florida, with the expectation that a quick and surgically precise military strike would lead to an uprising among Floridians who wanted out of the Confederacy. Lincoln expected victory. What he got was an unmitigated military and political disaster. Federal and Confederate troops engaged on Feb. 20, 1864, at Olustee in northern Florida. It was a complete and utter rout, with the Confederate forces thoroughly trouncing their blue-coated counterparts. Olustee, the largest battle waged in Florida, proved to be one of the bloodiest encounters of the war, with both sides recording alarmingly high rates of casualties and deaths. The Union, which was suffering from a lack of manpower, threw large numbers of black soldiers into the maw at Olustee, where they distinguished themselves. The colored troops went in grandly, and they fought like devils,Ž said one white Union soldier. After the encounter, some 50 black soldiers lay wounded and dying on the smoldering battlefield. Roving gangs of Rebel troops systematically murdered these defenseless men „ sometimes using clubs to accomplish the task. Lincoln realized his mistake, and Olustee was his last serious attempt to bring Florida back into the fold. The horror of that battle remained with the president and later, when he was vainly urged by some of his supporters to back away from emancipation, he said, There have been men who have proposed to me to return to slavery the black warriors of ... Olustee. I should be damned in time and in eternity for doing so.Ž As it turned out, Florida and its three electoral votes would have meant noth-ing. Lincoln defeated Gen. George B. McClellan in a landslide, winning 55 percent of the popular vote and prevail-ing in the Electoral College by a margin of 212 to 21. By 1868, the war was ended and Florida was once again ready to participate in a presidential vote. But Harrison Reed, the carpetbagging Republican governor who originally hailed from Wisconsin, insisted the state was too poor to fund an election. So, Florida became the only state in 1868 to eschew a popular vote. Instead, over protests from Democrats, Flori-das Reconstruction Legislature selected three Republican lawmakers to be the states presidential electors. The three dutifully cast their votes in the Electoral College for Ulysses S. Grant, the Repub-lican candidate who prevailed. Following Reconstruction, Florida „ like the rest of the Deep South „ trended Democratic. That shift ended in 1952 when the state supported Republican Dwight D. Eisenhower. Since then, Flor-ida has skipped back and forth between the two parties. And that is where we stand today.You could drive yourself crazy trying to figure out Florida, politically. The state will do what it will do and in its own time. It always has.

But it can be misunderstood or wrongly identified. And its effect in the work-place may be positive, especially for beginning employees watching others ingratiate themselves, according to a new study by two researchers published in The Journal of Applied Psychology. If you could sit down with your supervisor for an hour and talk, that would be the best way to form an impression, but we dont all have that opportunity,Ž explains Trevor Foulk, a doctoral can-didate in the School of Management at the University of Florida, Gainesville. He conducted the study with a colleague, David Long, from Virginias College of William and Mary.

Its almost like throwing your voice.Ž For men and women who have or had careers in Florida „ both bosses and workers alike „ reactions to kissing up range from tolerant or amused to indig-nant or disgusted. Ive never run into (a brown-noser) in Palmdale „ it might be nice,Ž says Patty Thielen Register, owner with her husband Allen of the celebrated roadside home of Florida reptiles, Gatorama, in Palmdale. People who work at Gatorama may spend so much time kissing up to alli-gators and crocodiles „ very carefully „ that they dont have time to ingratiate themselves with mere bosses who wont try to eat them. But that isnt the case elsewhere. Lalai Hamric, former CEO of Lee Family Health Centers, has seen many a brown-noser in her time. Ive been the boss. Ive seen the kissups that are so insincere its nauseating. Ive been taken advantage of by my vul-nerability „ (and) Ive been touched by truly sincere, caring employees. Ive also been guilty of misjudging a good person because I was lied to by bad ones I thought to be good. For that Ill be forever sorry. Bosses are just like real people. We like to be liked and to have fun. Its difficult to be boss and to let all into your life. I found I couldnt do it. That old saying is true: Its lonely at the top.Ž For Peter Gloggner, vice president and chief human resources officer at Jupiter Medical Center, the synonyms for ingrati-ating may be pejorative, but the act itself, done with respect, is not. I like the term ingratiating. I dont think it has a negative connotation,Ž he explains. As I read the research, I wasnt surprised. I started to think about the rela-tionships Ive had with previous bosses and current bosses, and I asked my human resources director, who thinks its a good thing. To have a good relationship with your boss helps down the road if there are contentious issues or disagreements. You can work through problems.Ž Which helps, especially since you spend a third of your life at work. And if there are performance problems, he adds, a good relationship can help the boss address them. The kissing up part is interesting because that does have a negative con-notation. But I dont see ingratiating as kissing up, as long as you have respect for the person.Ž And that raises another question: Is the old mantra in business, Its not personal,Ž the wrong way to approach employees or employers, since many Americans spend significant portions of their waking lives working and therefore living in workplace relationships? Academia can help understand the answer, perhaps. The notion that its not personal is not very applicable in business, at least when it comes to the way interpersonal interac-tions influence business o utc omes. There is certainly a place for (it) because very often the personal nature of things has to be suspended for business purposes (as in situations where unpleasant layoffs are necessary),Ž Mr. Foulk explains. But the notion that work is by its nature impersonal is not very supported by research. In fact, the opposite: Research suggests that interpersonal interactions drive many workplace outcomes. We already know that interpersonal interactions like ingratiation can influence the way the ingratiated boss feels about the ingratiatory. But what we show (in our study) is that ingratiation has second-order personal effects. It also influences the way observers feel about the parties involved in the ingratiation. So, interpersonal interactions arent limited to the dyads that comprise them. Rather, theyre embedded in a complex and dynamic work environment, and this means their effects are much more com-plicated.Ž Unless they arent, and that may depend on perception. Theres a difference between liking and respecting the boss and brown-nosing,Ž says Beverly Mott, a Charlotte County-based IT expert. One is earned, the other is given. And I dont know how to TELL you how to spot the difference, but I sure do know the difference when its up close and personal. As a boss, I liked the brown-nosers. As a co-worker, they were despised as l owly worms. Its all a matter of perspective.Ž For Perry Bihari, a longtime telephone lineman and now service technician for CenturyLink in south and central Florida, his colleagues can brown-nose all they can „ I dont care. As long as they do their JOBS!Ž That kind of levelheaded willingness not to judge is shared by Stacey Chadwick Brown, as well. A mental health therapist and staff clinician at Florida Gulf Coast University, she puts it this way: Brown-nosing can be a survival tool, and not necessarily a bad thing. I guess it depends on how you define it. I tend to think of it in terms of motivation. Sometimes people try to get along and please the boss because its a difficult work environment, or because theres bullying or emotional abuse going on „ thats when its a sur-vival tool. I dont think its healthy if someone has a manipulative plan, with intentional harm to co-workers, or something illegal is up. But genuine schmoozing is perfectly legitimate, although it may be annoying to others. And young folks trying to climb the ladder may be inclined to go above and beyond to be recognized or gain favor. Thats not necessarily a bad thing.Ž Q KISSINGFrom page 16GLOGGNER “Brown-nosing can be a survival tool, and not necessarily a bad thing.

A18 BUSINESS WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY MONEY & INVESTINGCisco, gambling on Internet of Things, a good buy for investorsIoT. An acronym virtually unheard of a few years ago that is now at the strate-gic core of some of the largest technol-ogy companies of the world. This is one of the key challenges facing investors today „ the incredibly rapid pace of innovation and with it wealth creation and destruction. In the past, great companies took decades to rise and fall. Today, a corpo-ration can be the largest in the world one minute and just a few years later barely be visible on investors radar. A company that illustrates this rapid rise and fall is Cisco Systems. Just 15 years ago the most valuable company in the world, Cisco is now attempting to find its place in a swiftly changing landscape. In 2013 it fired 4,000 employ-ees, in 2014 it fired 6,000 workers and just last week the company announced another round of layoffs affecting 5,500 people. So what is going on at Cisco? Is this a good investment? And what can we learn from the turmoil surrounding this company? Cisco Systems was founded in 1984 by two Stanford University computer science professionals and the company went public in 1990 at a market capi-talization of around $225 million. Cisco (abbreviated from the city San Francis-co) basically made devices that allowed computers to communicate with each other over the new phenomenon, the internet. And in the 90s and early 2000s, Cisco dominated this explosive area of tech-nology. By 2000, the company was worth over $500 billion. Cisco looked to be unstoppable and analysts believed the company would dominate for decades to come. But then came the dot-com crash. And newly formed companies like Juniper Networks and more established names like Alcatel-Lucent found better ways to transfer data over the internet. Cis-cos value and earnings plummeted as a result, with its stock price falling almost 90 percent. Cisco was forced to slash its workforce and find a new direction. Today, Cisco is attempting to return to its glory days by focusing its attention in two main areas. The first is cloud computing and data storage where the company faces sig-nificant competition from the likes of Amazon and Microsoft. And the second is IoT, which holds significant promise for Cisco. IoT stands for the Internet of Things and many believe this is the future of technol-ogy. Today, the internet is dominated by computers, tablets and smart phones. But many believe that in just a few years almost all new electronic devices from cars to home appliances will be net-worked together online. Imagine that your smart phones calendar knows you are having a cocktail party. It can talkŽ with your refrigerator to know that you need more beer and on your way home route your car to a grocery store that is having a sale on your favorite brand „ and pre-order it for you so it is ready for you when you arrive. By leveraging its ability to network computers, Cisco hopes to dominate this IoT future. To this end, it recently spent $1.4 billion to acquire Jasper, a leading IoT platform. If Cisco is successful in this venture, the company may reclaim its place as the most dominant and valu-able technology company in the world. Currently, it trades at a relatively low P/E of around 15 and pays a healthy divi-dend of 3.4 percent, so it is not like the company has huge valuation hurdles to overcome and investors can cash nice dividend checks as they wait. I think Cisco is definitely a company to keep on a growth investors radar.But thinking beyond Cisco, the companys saga teaches a powerful lesson about reviewing the companies in your portfolio. Assumptions about future prof-itability must be constantly analyzed and challenged. High market share today does not automatically mean high market share tomorrow. Even great companies like Apple and Walmart are learning that they must constantly innovate to sur-vive. Smart investors will need to deter-mine which companies are succeeding in responding to a rapidly changing market place and which are just holding on to past successes and respond accordingly. Q eric MOVING ON UP Martha Putnam is a mom who wants to help people become amazing parents, or at least good ones. As the mother of five herself „ and a longtime preven-tion specialist with Hanley Center Foun-dation „ the Boynton Beach woman has lots of tips to share on a variety of topics, including substance abuse, dis-cipline and conflict resolution. As of Aug. 8, Mrs. Putnam, aka Mom,Ž began tackling par-enting issues in a weekly Facebook advice column, Mom Says.Ž The column aims to serve as a sound resource for parents. Cre-ative ideas for family fun are offered in the column, too. Mrs. Putnam married her husband, Vince, 18 years ago when they were both 21. We decided it would be best to wait at least five years to have kids,Ž she said. Twelve months later, we were blessed with Lilly, who is now 17.Ž The rest of the Putnam crew includes Grace, 16, Will, 10, David, 8, and Paige, 6. Paige first came into our family as our foster daughter and two weeks before Christmas 2014 she officially became a Putnam,Ž Mrs. Putnam said. With five kids spread from a senior in high school down to a sweet kinder-gartner, our lives are never dull and I am constantly able to keep my parent-ing skills finely tuned,Ž she said. I seem to always be sharing little quotes from moments in life „ like on a very windy day I might say something like her mom should have told her not to wear a short skirt „ thats going to be problem.Ž The idea for the Mom SaysŽ column came after the foundation last year launched Twinz TweetŽ on Twitter and Instagram as a platform to reach students with positive messages. Moms dont tweet or Instagram,Ž said Mrs. Putnam, I do Facebook like many moms.Ž Mom SaysŽ is a continuation of the foundations desire to be more social media friendly. An important part of the foundations mission is a focus on prevention. The foundation has a team of 20 specialists in the state working to teach communi-ties about substance abuse prevention, and one of the key messages is a focus on family. I tell parents to have conversations with their children early, often and age appropriate,Ž Mrs. Putnam said. Pre-vention starts today.Ž Many parents dont know where to turn when they have questions about parenting, and the Hanley Center Foun-dation, because of extensive training, can supply evidence-based suggestions on a variety of topics. Mrs. Putnam, coordinator of Adult Programs, oversees all the parenting and older adult programs in Florida for the Hanley Center Foundation. She is well known as an authority on parenting, mental health and reducing underage drinking. Open and honest communication with our children is essential,Ž she said. If that isnt happening, professional help is recommended. For more information about Hanley Center Foundation and Mom Says,Ž visit the foundations Facebook page at hanleycenterfoundation.

West Palm hosts country hunks times three BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@” oridaweekly.comTwo of country musics hottest men are hitting the stage at CityPlace. And you get to see them for free! Chase Bryant and Canaan Smith will perform beginning at 6 p.m. Aug. 30 on the plaza concert stage at CityPlace, 700 S. Rosemary Ave., West Palm Beach. Mr. Bryant has seen his first two singles „ Take It On Back,Ž an infectious, up-tempo romp through young love, served with plenty of banjo and Southern rock guitar and Little Bit of You,Ž a sweet attempt to charm the girl „ both peak at No. 16 on the U.S. Charts. The 23-year-old Texan will have fans looking for room to dance when they hear his latest song, Room to Breathe,Ž released to country radio on July 4. Its catchy beat will have your cowboy boots scootin. And theres something interesting about the way Mr. Bryant plays guitar: Look closely „ hes left-handed but he plays a regular, right-handed guitar upside down. Fans of reality TV might recognize Canaan Smith from his appearance on Season 15 of The Amazing Race,Ž when he competed with Mika Combs. The 34-year-old singer/songwriter moved to Nashville in 2009, hoping for a career in the music business. He saw a bit of success as a songwriter first, when Runaway,Ž a song he co-wrote became Love and Thefts debut single and a mega-hit that reached the Top 10 on the Bill-board Hot Country Songs list. It was more than a few years before Smith saw his own single, Love You Like That,Ž reach No. 1 on the Country Air-play chart in summer of 2015. His second single, Hole in a Bottle,Ž a drinking song with a really fun hook, peaked at 23. HAPPENINGSSEE HAPPENINGS, B12 XJUSTIN NOLAN KEY Chase Bryant ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2016 | SECTION B WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM With a string of chart-topping country hits and a pair of hit albums under his belt, Brantley Gilbert has become a bona fide headliner in the genre. And he will be a headliner during his Aug. 28 show at Perfect Vodka Amphi-theatre. Stepping up to headlining status means Mr. Gilbert is expected to deliver a polished show that brings his songs to life and be able to work a big stage while engaging and entertaining an audience numbering well into the thousands and beyond. Mr. Gilbert has been topping bills since fall 2012 and looks to have taken to playing big shows like hes been doing it all of his life. And that makes sense when he compares the shows he does now to the ones he played while cutting his teeth and honing his performance chops coming up. Looking back, we had the hard time, but the privilege, of actually coming up playing biker bars and little bitty college bars,Ž Mr. Gilbert said. Solo gigs are tough. Id say thats 10 times harder any day of the week than (it is now) going up there with my guys (in the band) and being up there in that comfort zone,Ž he said. Mr. Gilbert indeed paid his dues before he became one of country musics fastest rising newer stars with a hard-edged sound and a knack for making his concerts a good-time party. Born Jan. 20, 1985, the native of Jefferson, Ga., indeed began his music career a decade ago by playing solo acoustic gigs around the Southeast before mov-ing to Nashville and landing a publish-ing deal with Warner Chappell.Brantley Gilbert to headline concert at Perfect VodkaSEE ART, B3 XNazi-looted artwork is discovered in museums in Sarasota, West PalmFound!Adolf Hitler understood the power of art. He was, after all, an artist long before he became the leader of the Nazi party. So it should come as no surprise that art played a role in his notorious regime. Most people know „ thanks in part to the movie The Monuments MenŽ (2014; starring, co-written and directed by George Clooney) „ that the Nazis confiscated artwork for their personal enjoyment. But the looting extend-ed beyond paintings and sculptures admired by Hitler and his cohorts. In the years leading up to World War II, the Nazis ransacked museums, churches and private residences across Germany to purge the country of degenerateŽ art. Over time, both Nazi-approved and Nazi-censured sto-len artwork made its way into private and museum collections around the world. Fast-forward to 1999, when the American Alliance of Museums issued guide-lines encouraging museums to revisit the provenanceŽ (ownership histo-ry) of works in their collections that changed hands in Europe between 1933 and 1945 (labeled Nazi-era artŽ). The objective was to identify and return artwork unlawfully appropriated by the Nazis. Both the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach and the Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota have done the work to comply with the AAMs guidelines. Both institutions now know the history of the artwork looted by the Nazis that resided in their collections. The works and their provenance reveal flipsides of the Nazi art coin.From Goering to the NortonThe Norton Museum of Arts King PyrrhusŽ was painted by Rembrandt BY NANETTE CRISTFlorida Weekly Correspondent Ewald Matare’s woodcut titled “Pasture,” once featured in the Degenerate Art Exhibi-tion, is currently owned by the Ringling. “King Pyrrhus,” owned by the Norton Museum of Art, was saved by the Monuments Men.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY scott SIMMONS Objects of good design really do go together – regardless of age COLLECTORS CORNER When I was growing up in Fort Myers in the 1970s, I loved all things relating to history. Back then, one could receive a tour of Thomas Edisons winter home and laboratory that was guided by the old men who served as assistants to Edison in the Fort Myers laboratory when they were young boys in the teens and 20s. And back then, I met some of the most fascinating people at shops and through my mothers clubs and organizations. My mom was „ and still is „ active in the Fort Myers Doll Club. In the 1970s, many of the members were of my grandmothers generation and older. I remember one of the most delightful of those ladies „ Olive McCarty „ showing me this miniature chest or that fabulous frippery bought back in the 50s or 60s in the antiques department at Marshall Fields in Chicago. Oh, you cant imagine how wonderful the antiques were there. It all was curated,Ž she would say with a flourish. I loved seeing Mrs. McCarty „ she was always very well turned out, and her antiques and dolls were among the finest in the area. But by the time I made it to Marshall Fields that antiques department on State Street was a thing of the past. Its a pity because I love to see something with history becoming a part of dcor. Thats what made me love Gumps department store during a recent visit to San Francisco. Id long heard of Gumps, that fabled center of decorative splendor, but only made it there recently. Forget Rice-A-Roni „ Gumps is the San Francisco treat, especially for lovers of art and dcor. Colorful glass sculptures from the United States and elsewhere sparkle in the light from the front windows. Cases to the left of the door are filled with jewelry. The space to the right is filled with art pottery and more art glass. A giant statue of Buddha greets you as you climb the stairs. Upstairs, there were furnishings, dishes and beautiful linens „ I bought flour-sack towels with whimsical designs to use as hostess gifts. And I loved hearing a saleswoman referring to a china pattern as Export-inspired,Ž taking a cue from the European-motif pieces made in China during the 18th century. A room filled with antique crystal and silver transported me to another era. Tables were laden with cut-glass biscuit jars and salt cellars. Another table was loaded with caviar servers, and cases were groaning with silver serving pieces „ a grace note on any table, and inspired pieces to use today „ especially in our food-savvy culture. None of it seemed out of context with the beautiful contemporary pieces that filled the rest of the store. In fact, it all had a curated feel like Marshall Fields back in the days Mrs. McCarty shopped there. We cant all make the trek to Gumps, but we can draw inspiration from the notion that objects of good design have a way of coordinating regardless of era. Thats one sweet lesson Ill take from my trip to San Francisco.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B3 student Ferdinand Bol. The classical image of the proud military commander is a prime example of art given the Nazi stamp of approval. The paint-ings previous ownership by King Carol I of Romania and various French and Belgian aris-tocrats enhanced its allure. At the time of World War II, the painting was the property of Jewish bank-ers Marcel and Daniel Wolf. When the Nazis made their way to Holland, the Wolfs fled Amster-dam, leaving King PyrrhusŽ and other treasures in their gallery. Gen. Friedrich Christiansen, supreme commander of the Nazi forces in the Netherlands, added operation of the gallery to his duties. Gen. Christiansen negotiated the sale of King PyrrhusŽ to his friend Reichsmarschall Goering, laundering the transaction through a second gal-lery in an attempt to legitimize it. The purchase price was a mere pittance of the value of the painting. The mas-terpiece joined Goerings collection of appropriated art and was displayed at Carinhall, his castle residence outside Berlin. As World War II drew to a close, Goering moved the best of the art collection to a bunker in Berchtesgaden for safe-keeping. Just as in the movie, the Monu-ments Men discovered the cache. King PyrrhusŽ was repatriated to authorities in The Hague and returned to Daniel Wolf. Mr. Wolf sold the painting in a 1960 Christies auction to George and Val-erie Delacorte. In 2007, Mrs. Delacorte donated King PyrrhusŽ to the Norton Museum. The saga of this painting „ from its creation to its looting by Hermann Goering himself to its return to its right-ful owners to its donation as a gift to the Norton „ truly makes history come alive,Ž said Scott Benarde, the Nortons director of communications. It is one of the looted Nazi art stories with a sat-isfying ending at a time when so many other stories from that era have yet to end well.Ž The great and the degenerateThe history and style of the Norton Museums King PyrrhusŽ stand in sharp contrast to the Ringlings degenerateŽ art. Throughout his reign, Hitler used art as a propaganda tool. In 1937 Munich, the Reich Culture Chamber, with Min-ister of Propaganda Joseph Goebbels at the helm, organized two contrasting art exhibitions: the Great German Art Exhibition and the Degenerate Art Exhi-bition. The Great German Art Exhibition included 900 pieces of artwork com-patible with Hitlers vision of an ideal world. Nudes depicted classically beauti-ful bodies (all of which, needless to say, were lily white). Representational work was endorsed, whether a mother feeding her child or a German vista. Befitting of such a significant propaganda effort, the exhibit was held in a grandiose venue, the newly constructed House of German Art. Across town, the Degenerate Art Exhibition contained 650 works by Jews, communists and other artists whose modernŽ style was reviled by Hitler. He publicly declaimed the art in the exhibi-tion, promising that works of art which cannot be comprehended and are vali-dated only through bombastic instruc-tions for use ƒ will no longer be foisted upon the German people.Ž In contrast to the Great German Art Exhibition, the Degenerate Art Exhibi-tion was housed in a decrepit building. Visitors climbed a rickety set of stairs to view works displayed in cramped rooms where paintings hung with no sense of order. Graffiti-like writing on the walls provided commentary such as nature as seen by sick mindsŽ and revelation of the Jewish racial soul.Ž The Degenerate Art Exhibition traveled for three years as a cautionary tale about what people would be subjected to without the Nazis at the helm. More than 3 million people visited the exhibit „ more than three times the number who viewed the Great German Art Exhibition. Once the show was disbanded, the Nazis had no use for the art in the exhibit (or the more than 15,000 other pieces of degenerateŽ art they had stolen, for that matter). Thousands of paintings by artists such as Picasso, Chagall and Dali were burned. But some artwork was sold to foreigners in exchange for much-needed American dollars. Fortunately, one of those foreigners was a press correspondent.Degenerate saviorEdward W. Beattie Jr. was a European correspondent for United Press during World War II. While stationed in Czechoslovakia, he bought 12 works on paper that could be rolled up and readily transported to the United States. Mr. Beatties collection is illustrative of the art condemned by the Nazis. Its easier to understand Hitlers objection to George Groszs Evening Street No. 5,Ž in which an Aryan woman is surrounded by unsavory characters. The passersby „ even the dog „ have bulging eyes that make them look crazed and dangerous. The eyepatch-adorned gentleman is an unwelcome reference to previous battles that didnt turn out so well. But Nazi concerns about other works salvaged by Mr. Beattie are more diffi-cult to discern. Was it the abstraction of Christian Rohlfs FlowersŽ that made it unpalatable? Did the unfinished quality of Karl Hofers Nude Girl with Flower PotŽ render it subversive? In 1954, Mr. Beattie donated his collection to the Ringling. An exhibit was mounted after which the artwork made its way to the Ringlings vault. Almost half a century later, the AAM issued its recommendations concerning Nazi-era art. The Ringling embraced the projects goals immediately, but the task was daunting. Physical files containing the provenance history of the museums tens of thousands of works would have to be computerized and examined. Enter Lauren von Bechmann, who had previously investigated the ownership history of a painting by degenerate artist Edvard Munch.Art sleuthingBy the time Ms. von Bechmann joined the museum last year, its records had been digitized and any troubling gaps in ownership flagged. And she was eager to take on another provenance project „ and made it her mission to identify the rightful owners of the works gifted by Mr. Beattie. Her job was made easier by the Nazis excellent recordkeeping. Their inventory of the Degenerate Art Exhibition boldly included the institutions and families from whom the works had been stolen. But this list, like the provenance records themselves, floated around for decades in paper form inaccessible to museums for their research. It wasnt until 2014 that a computerized version of the inven-tory was published. Even with the inventory list in hand, some detective work was required by Ms. von Bechmann. Some works were marked in blue crayon with numbers that neatly corresponded to data on the list. Others had only a stamp whose meaning was unclear. Some lacked even the art-ists signature. Earlier this year, Ms. von Bechmann completed her project after identifying a number of small German museums as the artworks proper owners. The insti-tutions have been contacted. It is antici-pated the works will be returned to them, hopefully after a final public showing. Your work has a lot of meaning when contributing something to society like the return of cultural property, she said. Although each piece of looted art that is identified and returned is a victory worth celebrating, the daunting quest continues. The Ringling and the Norton have identified the items of Nazi-era art in their collections, but additional prov-enance research on the works remains to be done „ and museums across the country will continue to scour their records for years to come. Only then will the myriad pieces of Nazi-seized art find their way to their true owners, wherever in the world they are. Q ARTFrom page 1 “Nude Girl with Flower Pot” by Karl Hofer is an example of “degenerate” art now owned by the Ringling.

Military Trail, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410 Just north of PGA Blvd. on Military Trail PUZZLE ANSWERS Mr. Gilberts songwriting began to put him on the country music map a few years ago after Jason Aldean covered the Gilbert tune, The Best of Me,Ž for the Walmart version of his 2009 album Wide Open.Ž Mr. Aldean later had a top five hit with the Gilbert tune, My Kind of Party,Ž and also cut Dirt Road Anthem,Ž co-written by Mr. Gilbert and Colt Ford. As he gained songwriting credits, Mr. Gilbert also started recording his own music. Signed to the indie label Aver-age Joes Entertainment, he released his first album, Modern Day Prodigal Son,Ž in 2009. His second album, Halfway to Heaven,Ž was released a year later on Aver-age Joes, but got a second life when Mr. Gilbert signed to Big Machines Valory Music imprint in 2011 and that label reis-sued the album. Thats when Mr. Gilberts career began to take off. The first two sin-gles from the album, Country Must Be Country WideŽ and You Dont Know Her Like I Do,Ž both topped Billboard magazines Hot Country Songs chart. By the end of 2012, Mr. Gilbert was starting to headline sizeable venues and Half-way to HeavenŽ has gone on to sell more than a million copies. His career and profile has only accelerated with his current release, Just As I Am,Ž which arrived in May 2014. The album so far has given Mr. Gilbert two No. 1 Country Airplay singles, Bottoms UpŽ and One Hell of an Amen,Ž and a top 10 single in Small Town Throwdown.Ž The latest album delivers more of what fans have liked from Mr. Gilbert. There are brawny Southern rock-tinged country on tunes like If You Want A Bad Boy,Ž Small Town ThrowdownŽ mixed in with a few rockers that have a slightly softer edge (Bottoms UpŽ and 17 AgainŽ) and several muscular, but tender hearted, ballads (Im GoneŽ and Let It RideŽ). Lyrically, Mr. Gilbert lives up to the album title Just As I AmŽ with songs that feel authentic and lived through. That honesty is something hes tried to convey throughout his career, and Mr. Gilbert says the image of him as a bad boy with a heart of gold is pretty close to the truth. I dont write about anything I havent been through,Ž Mr. Gilbert said. I dont try to be somebody Im not. Theyre real stories. They really are about me. I tell everybody, if you want to get to know me, if you listen to those three records, youll have a really good idea. And they were released at different time periods in my life, and those are the things I was going through.Ž Mr. Gilbert is busy bringing his brand of country to life this spring on his Black OutŽ tour. He said fans can expect him to bring the party, as he plays songs from across his still-young career. Weve enhanced the production a little bit,Ž Mr. Gilbert said of his live show. Its still going to be all guns blaz-ing right out of the chute. Were going to come out with all guns blazing and put em back in the holster the same way. It will be a real high energy (evening). And well take you back a little bit and kind of pull some heart strings, or try to, then go right back to raising all kind of hell.Ž Q GILBERTFrom page 1 Brantley Gilbert>> When: 7 p.m. Aug. 28 >> Where: Perfect Vodka Amphitheatre, South Florida Fairgrounds, 601-7 Sansbury’s Way, West Palm Beach. >> Cost: $25-$49.75 >> Info: COURTESY PHOTOBrantley Gilbert at the Academy of Country Music Awards.

For more information, visit cityplace. com or call 366-1000.And don’t forget Sunday On the Water-frontSunday On the Waterfront on Sept. 18 is a bonus for country music fans. Craig Campbell, whose biggest hit to date was 2013s Keep Them Kisses Comin,Ž per-forms a free concert at Meyer Amphi-theatre, 104 Datura St., West Palm Beach, from 4-7 p.m. Mr. Campbells set list will likely include his other hits, including the sen-timental Family ManŽ and 2011s comedic Fish,Ž which is the punchline to a sexy joke. But the latest radio release from the 37-year-old Georgia native is Outskirts of Heaven,Ž a spiritual song thats a deeper exploration of Campbells faith. Fans arent used to hearing heavily Christian songs like it on country radio, but once every few years we get a profound spiri-tual expression from country music that becomes a runaway hit. Examples include Trent Tomlinsons One Wing in the FireŽ from 2006 and B&Ds BelieveŽ in 2003. Its possible Mr. Campbells song will follow that path. Rolling Stone praised the song for being a declaration of faith deliv-ered with traditional country twang. Judge for yourself when Mr. Campbell performs it live on Sept. 18. Mr. Campbells opening act is Parklands Liddy Clark, a 17-year-old singer/songwriter with a modern country sound. Bring your own blankets and lawn chairs to this outdoor event. Pack a pic-nic or get take-out from one of the local restaurants.

You can meet the photographers and hear from the man who chose them at the opening reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 26. This years winner of the best-of-show cash prize and two merit awardees who earned free tuition to a Photo Centre workshop will be announced live at the reception.

For more information, call 253-2600. To see more, visit Q HAPPENINGSFrom page 1 phil FLORIDA WRITERSThe book reviewer discovers a bookstore worth writing aboutEarlier this summer I had the pleasure of meeting Patti Jefferson, the proprietor of P.J. Boox, at her bookstore in South Fort Myers. On that day, thriller author M.A. Richards was there with his wife for a book signing. After strolling around and enjoying the distinctive layout of the store, I just had to share Ms. Jeffersons vision with my readers. Q: How „ and why „ is P.J. Boox different from other bookstores?A: In many ways we are just like every other bookstore youve ever been in: We offer great mysteries, romance, poetry, childrens books and a bunch of other genres. In spite of that, almost everyone who walks through our doors knows that we are definitely NOT like any other bookstore that they have ever seen. I suppose it starts with the fact that our books are all displayed face out. You can see the cover of every book that we offer. Turns out that the adage of dont judge a book by its coverŽ is really about making assumptions about people and not books at all. Of course the biggest difference is the fact that the books we sell are all by independently or small press published authors from around the world. What does that mean for the average reader? Not much actually. I have never yet met a reader who cared who the pub-lisher of a book was; they just want a good story with charac-ters they can love or hate. Work-ing with these authors directly gives us different advantages than a big box store does. For instance, most of our books are signed by the author and we can Skype or Facetime with them for a book club. Q: How does your selection process work? A: For a long time, independent or small press publishing had a bit of a stigma as being an inferior product to traditionally published books. In the recent years, however, independent authors have fought to correct that ill-conceived notion ƒ We get submissions on our website directly from authors, and we also solicit select authors online. We judge the books by their cover designs and by whether the manuscript was professionally edited. We look at reviews in places like Ama-zon and Goodreads. We check out the authors other marketing platforms, and we are especially interested in books that have won national or international book awards. Q: What is your business model?A: From a customer standpoint, we run just like any other bookstore: We have books available in many genres, and we have places that a reader can sit and enjoy a chapter or two. You can talk about books and literature with the staff. Behind the scenes, however, our business model is something new to the book industry. We work on a consignment system similar to how antique malls have always run. The authors rent shelf space and we pay them out 98 percent of all sales. It is difficult sometimes for independent authors to get into a brick and mortar bookstore, and when they do, often the store will take between 40 percent and 60 percent. Those mar-gins dont always work out well for the author. As an author myself, I get that. Its also challenging to find the time to balance between work, family, writing and marketing. P.J. Boox strives to offer another avenue of promotion for authors who dont have big publishing houses behind them. Q: Have you made discoveries youd like to single out?A: One of the things we pride ourselves in is the number of national and international book award winners that we have on our shelves. Childrens book author Lee Ann Mancini has won more than a dozen awards for her Adventures of the Sea KidsŽ series. Lawyer/author Rus-sel Lazega has won numerous awards for his memoir Managing Bubbie,Ž which was just done as an audio book featuring actress Linda Lavin. Our read-ers are discovering authors that really resonate with them. Q „ Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.

Only the loca-tions are accurate, however; the dialog is fictionalized, which is a downer given the films inherent appeal. Combine that with low-budget production values and stan-dard editing, and the whole thing plays like a made-for-TV movie. Rated PG-13. Ben-Hur + 1/2 (Jack Huston, Toby Kebbell, Morgan Freeman) At the time of Jesus Christ (Rodrigo Santoro), a Jewish prince (Mr. Huston) is forced into slavery by his adopted brother (Mr. Kebbell), who is a Roman soldier. The story drags and the performances do little to enliven the stilt-ed dialog; two decent actions sequences are the lone saving grace. Rated PG-13. Hell or High Water +++ 1/2 (Ben Foster, Chris Pine, Jeff Bridges) A Texas Ranger (Mr. Bridges) tracks two bank-robbing brothers (Mr. Foster and Mr. Pine) in this superb neo-western. A great drama highlighted by fantastic writing and even better performances, its one of the best movies of the year. Rated R. Florence Foster Jenkins +++ (Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Rebecca Ferguson) In 1944 New York City, wealthy socialite Florence Foster Jenkins (Ms. Streep) aspires to be an opera singer in spite of her notable lack of ability. Ms. Streep and Mr. Grant are a formi-dable duo, but its director Stephen Frears (PhilomenaŽ) striking just the right tone of laughing at Florence that makes it all work. Rated PG-13. Q LATEST FILMS‘Hands of Stone’ +++ Is it worth $10? YesPart boxing movie and part biopic, Hands of StoneŽ tells the story of Roberto Duran (Edgar Ramirez), a boxer who rose from poverty in Panama to become a world champion. Yes, youve seen this kind of movie plenty of times before, and the fact that this one is based on a true story doesnt necessarily add to the appeal. But this will: The fight scenes and train-ing montages are edited in an engaging way, and the film is full of little moments and details that make it a truly lively and dynamic viewing experience. Duran is an up-and-coming boxer when he hooks up with esteemed trainer Ray Arcel (Robert De Niro) in 1971. Through Arcel, Duran learns both boxing technique and how to strategize. Combined with his natural ring sense,Ž this makes him nearly unbeatable and world famous. Durans biggest rival is Sugar Ray Leonard, nicely played by hip-hop star Usher Raymond as a mild-mannered guy whos light on his feet and tough to beat in the ring. We also see Duran outside the ring, mostly chasing a schoolgirl named Felicidad (Ana de Armas) and engaging with Panamanian locals after he becomes famous. Written and directed by Jonathan Jakubowicz, the film is at its best when Arcel and Duran interact. Note the way Arcel combs Durans hair in between rounds of a fight because it intimidates the opponent to see Duran coming out looking fresh. Also note that the reason Duran hates being hungry while training is because he was often hungry as a kid and it brings back horrible memories. Also, Arcel doesnt allow Duran to mouth off to him. More than once he puts Duran in his place, but at the same time he fights for and defends Duran against all who try to take advantage of him. Their bond is articulated through their actions, not words of affec-tion. Its quite nice, actually. There are some extraneous moments: All of Arcels personal life shouldve been left on the editing room floor, but doing so wouldve cut out three things: 1) John Turturro as a New York City gangster, 2) Ellen Barkin as Arcels wife and 3) Drena De Niro (Mr. De Niros adopted daughter) as Arcels estranged daughter. Mr. De Niro is really good here, yes, but you cant help but wish Mr. Jakubowicz had looked objec-tively at the film and realized whats obvi-ous to us: that focusing on Duran alone wouldve made the movie better. The distractions are worsened by the fact that Durans story is so compelling, meaning we want him on screen more and dont want to be distracted by Arcels personal drama. Destitute, lacking edu-cation and abandoned by his father at age 14, Duran fought in street fights for money before going under the wing of a boxing trainer named Plomo (Pedro Perez). His journey to becoming a cham-pion, complete with adversity, love and fame, is as compelling a rags-to-riches tale as youll find. Mr. Ramirez plays him with the appropriate stubborn conviction, and in the process gets us to like Duran and forgive him for his flaws. If you dont follow boxing you might not know the name Roberto Duran, and thats OK. After all, it doesnt mean you cannot (or will not) enjoy his story in Hands of Stone.Ž On par with CreedŽ in terms of overall quality, this film is a solid movie worthy of the admirable life and career Duran has led. Q dan >> Roberto Duran’s nickname was “Manos de Piedra,” which is Spanish for “Hands of Stone.”

The Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Resort and Spa has brought in Gustavo Calderon as executive chef. He previously was with the Ritz-Carlton in Naples and their properties in Cancun and Bahrain. Mr. Calderon is originally from Mex-ico, and honed his chops doing internships in Manhattan for such notables as Eric Ripert of Le Bernadin Hell work with the resorts assistant general manager, Larry LaValley The pair has a history together working as chefs at the acclaimed Marks South Beach with one of the original Mango GangŽ chefs, Mark Militello as well as at The Regent Bal Harbor in Miami. Expect a menu redo as season sets in; the fall menu is being created now for a November debut. New home for Limoncello Limoncello an Italian spot with a devoted following, has moved south … but only by a few blocks. Formerly just north of PGA Boulevard in a stand-alone spot on U.S. High-way 1, its now ensconced in the City Centre near the Twisted Trunk and Carmines Crab Shack They moved, according to publicist Briana Beaty to gain room inside and parking outside the restaurant. The styl-ish, elegant dcor is all new, save the meat slicer brought from Italy by one of the owners, but the foods and menu remain the same. Limoncello, at 2000 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens, Suite 3110, serves dinner only, daily. 622-7200. Christopher’s Kitchen chefopens in West Palm Beach The vegan, raw foods star of Palm Beach Gardens, Christopher Slawson of Christophers Kitchen has opened Meraki Juice Kitchen in downtown West Palm Beach. The chef of the organic, gluten-free, and plant-based res-taurant so popular in the North Coun-ty is planning on a mini-chain of the juice cafes, with oth-ers planned for Del-ray Beach and Boca Raton. Freshly pressed juices, espresso, and tonics are served, along with take-away foods such as creams and cheeses made from nuts and other plants. Vegan breakfast and lunch items also will be available from the take-out cases. Merakis Juice Kitchen is at 328 Fern St., West Palm Beach; open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. Pizza Girls headed to PBG Here come the girls. The Pizza Girls Jennifer Morales and her spouse, Phobe Reckseit are opening a second location, in the Garden Square Shoppes at PGA Boulevard and Military Trail. The pizza place that has anchored south Clematis Street near the fountains in West Palm Beach since 1999 will replace a puppy shop and a neighboring cigar store. Ms. Morales said theyd been scouting for a spot in that particular plaza for some time. We love that area. There are no shops available there „ nobody leaves,Ž she said. When we heard that the Gar-dens banned the puppy stores, we said, Lets watch when they go out, and well nab that space.Ž They got more than they originally planned for when the cigar store next door decided to go to direct sales and they were offered that spot, too. The women, who have been partners for 25 years „ though working togeth-er makes it seem like 50,Ž she jokes „ have big plans. It will be bigger, with table service „ but well still sell slices and have the pizza display up front,Ž Ms. Morales said. But the big news is were adding a craft beer and wine bar. Well have local beers and select wines.Ž She said they had originally planned on an October opening, but with the new expanded space, she figures November will be more realistic. Parisian reopens after break The Parisian Restaurant and Wine Bar owners are back from their summer hiatus and reopened last week. The small French brasserie in the Shoppes of Jupiter on U.S. 1 will have an expanded wine list this season, with both California and Parisian Cellar choices added to the menu.

Morforgen steps back at 32 East Big shake-up in South County: Nick Morfogen of 32 East in Delray Beach is leaving after 17 years as executive chef and partner. Mr. Morfogen will keep a small share of the restaurant, and its sister Tryst he helped put on South Floridas map as a frontrunner in modern American regional cuisine. Im taking a break,Ž he said. I need more family time. So Im going with a country club for a while.Ž After several offers, he chose Pine Tree Golf Club in Boynton Beach. Its exclusive „ and small, around 300 members, all golf „ with no tennis, no pool, just a golf club. Ill do dinner three nights a week. And they close in the summer.Ž Thats a far cry from the five to seven dinners a week plus private parties hes cooked at the bustling, acclaimed res-taurant year-round. The tenor of the area has changed, however. Its really saturated there now,Ž he says of Atlantic Avenue and the Delray downtown area. The designated Main Street USAŽ was only beginning to come around when 32 East opened. The thorough-fare has exploded in recent years with dozens of new restaurants along with a shift from quaint small town to modern urban area. Mr. Morfogen talked with friends who are chefs at other South Florida country clubs to consider the pros and cons of jumping from a restaurant to a club kitchen. There were no cons,Ž he said. And I can walk there from my house. I asked them, jokingly but partly serious, if theyd give me a golf cart to get to work.Ž He will miss the daily grind only so much, he says. As for the creativity allowed at the restaurant, he said hes pretty sure he will be okay with cooking for mostly Baby Boomers who are not satisfied with the old-school country club menus. Theyve grown up on good food, and know what they want, and theyre will-ing to spend for it.Ž He starts Sept. 6, developing menus and setting up the kitchen his way. Meanwhile, hes planning on downtime with his family. With boys from college age to preschool, hes looking forward to spending time with them again. He said the bottom line is, It really is all about family.Ž In brief Palm Beachs Royal P oinciana Plaza undergoing a big renovation, will get a transplanted New York restaurant this fall. Sant Ambroeus of Manhattan and Southampton, is set to bring its Milanese cuisine to Palm Beach where one of the partners in the restaurant has a home. The corporate thinking was that many of the Palm Beachers know the restaurant from their summer places in the Hamptonsƒ. Now open for lunch and dinner: Kao Gang Thai Sushi the new Asian restaurant in the refurbished PGA Plaza on PGA Boulevard (near Trader Joes ). Its from the same owners and chef at Malakor Thai in Northwood. The dcor alone is worth a stop: Hand-painted murals by co-owner Billy Manthy grace the walls. A small sushi bar is a nice spot for a quick biteƒ. James Strine will lead the team behind the stoves at Grato in West Palm Beach as executive chef. The for-mer sous chef at Caf Boulud in Palm Beach is already buddies with Clay Conley chef and creator of the Italian pizza-pasta restaurant thats a sister to Buccan in Palm Beach. We are beyond thrilled to have someone with his talent and experience join our team,Ž said Mr. Conley.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 25-31, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15The Dish: Cheese ravioli The Place: Divino Ristorante Italiano, 11585 U.S. 1, North Palm Beach; 721-2250 or The Details: Divino is one of those neighborhood places people like to keep a secret because its tucked away and intimate, and, besides, who needs a crowd when dining? I ordered ravioli because its something Id never make at home, at least not fresh. The pasta was cooked al dente and the ravioli were packed with ricotta and served in a zesty tomato sauce. My friend ordered the pappardelle, those wide fettucine noodles, with por-cini mushrooms in a cream sauce. The mushrooms were decadently earthy but blended perfectly with the delicate sauce. Q „ Sc ott Simmons Ten years ago, when Chef Kevin Knieriemen began working at the 5-star resort in Manalapan, it was a Ritz-Carlton and he was a line cook. Since then, the resort has become Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa and Chef Knieriemen has become chef de cuisine for its Breeze Ocean Kitchen. The outdoor restaurant, which debuted last November after a major makeover, has sophisticated furnishings that seat up to 120 and a runway fire feature that lights up lounge areas at night. Theres an outdoor bar, too, above the resorts private beach. From it, customers have gorgeous views of the ocean. GPS-controlled slat roofing adjusts to allow optimal sun-shine and protection on rainy days. Its a nifty feature,Ž says Chef Knieriemen. Before moving to Florida more than a decade ago, he worked at mom-and-pop restaurants in upstate New York. I have always liked to cook,Ž he said. My mom was a really great cook, espe-cially with comfort foods like mac-n-cheese. Sometimes after school, I would come home and cook so she wouldnt have to.Ž To hone his skills, Chef Knieriemen went to Johnson & Wales in North Miami. He still likes to cook at home for his fiance, Alison, and their 1-year-old daughter, Stella. What does he make them?Anything she asks for,Ž said Chef Knieriemen, who always wants to please. The fare at Breeze has an island flair.The chef said he likes all the dishes served at Breeze (Cubano Tacos, Cevi-che and Mojo Florida Pink Shrimp S kewers, to name a few), but says customers are especially drawn to the mahi mahi tacos ($19) served with chayote slaw and chipotle aioli. For dessert, Key lime pops ($8) always are a hit. The local craft beers are also a hit. I really enjoy working with my team,Ž Chef Knieriemen said. Its really a plea-sure to come to work every day.Ž In his spare time, Chef Knieriemen enjoys biking and music „ he plays guitar. But being a chef, he said, is his dream job. Im always looking for new recipes and like to change things up,Ž he said. Kevin KnieriemenAge: 39 Original Hometown: Warwick, N.Y.
