We heal for Terry. Terry T ipple … Str oke Survivor 2015Ali R. Malek, MDMedical Director, SMMC Comprehensive Stroke Center8 Years COMMENTARYLosing groundThe historical origins of Labor Day are still subject to debate. We do know it became a federal holiday in 1894. There was a long run-up by trade unions and the labor movement to promote the idea, and it caught on. By the time Congress acted, 30 states already had inaugurated their own versions of a cel-ebration. They orchestrated thousands of events to shower American workers with public appreciation. These were all-day affairs. Vast picnic suppers in public parks followed on the heels of meandering parades. Brass bands entertained them with patriotic tunes. Flowery speeches droned on, late into the afternoon, generous superla-tives heaping ever higher the orators praise of the l owly wage earner. They called to their audience: Look to your left; look to your right. Here beside you stand the cogs and the wheels that work together and lift the nation toward greatness and shared prosperity for all!Ž For one fine day, ordinary men and women were raised upon the shoulders of the nation, their contributions toward building a thriving, American economy accorded dignity and respect. But alas, the holiday passed, American work-ers returned to their labors, faceless, swallowed up in the anonymity of their workplaces. The reality of workers lives was neither picnic nor pedestal in the decades leading up to the Great Depres-sion. Their workplaces were predatory. They toiled in dangerous and unsafe conditions. They were mercilessly exploited by profiteers, their fight for justice in the workplace thwarted by industries immune from oversight and regulation. The labor movement finally brought greater balance into the equa-tion. Workers pay and working condi-tions improved. But in 1894 and for many decades thereafter, the Labor Day holiday was just that: a single day of respite from a yearlong battle to survive in industries notorious for their habit of chewing up and discarding employees as if human garbage „ in mining, textiles, construc-tion, agriculture, services and manu-facturing. Being in the workforce then was no holiday; and, now, despite all the progress made, it is no holiday for todays workers either. Sure, the labor movement made a huge difference. "How low can you go" as a U.S, business model was chal-lenged on multiple fronts. Workers are protected by labor standards envied by workers around the world, but those standards always are under threat. Will we roll back laws forbidding child labor? Probably not. Will wage slavery make a comeback? A definite maybe. In America, economic well being depends mightily on increasing income and earnings over a lifetime of work. The upward trajectory in income allows for working people to take responsibil-ity for educating children, owning a home, planning for retirement, access-ing medical care. They even can take a vacation now and then. But this is where things have gone backward for todays working class families. Upward mobility is broken, and worse, caught in a downward spiral. All working families are at risk. Wage disparity and income inequality have eroded what was, decades ago, a livable wage. This is not somebody elses prob-lem. It is a national problem affecting a vast swath of American families, includ-ing Floridians. Deciphering a recent Bureau of Labor Statistics study, Scott Powers of wrote, In Orlando, the three occupations with the most jobs are retail salespersons,Ž food prepara-tion workersŽ (which includes fast food) and waiters and waitresses.Ž All these occupations combined total more than 120,000 jobs, or more than 10 percent of all Orlandos jobs. The kicker? None pays a median annualized pay of more than $20,430. Is it enough to provide for a family? The answer? Not by half. A livable, hourly wage to support a family of two adults (one working) and two kids in the Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford metro area is $18.04. To pay the estimated expenses for a family of this size in this metro area requires an annu-al income (before taxes) of $49, 842. Florida International University (FIU) soon will publish its 2016 State of Florida Workers Report,Ž a study assess-ing how Floridas workforce is faring in the current economy. It is released annually around Labor Day. Its a good opportunity to temper gratuitous myth making with labor force facts. The 2015 study reported Floridas wage gap grew significantly following the 2008 housing collapse and that from 1980 to 2014, salaries paid to the states top 10 percent of wage earners grew 25 times faster than the pay earned by workers in the bottom 10 percent. These and other data suggest Florida is winning the wage race to the bottom. It is among those states whose employ-ers pay the lowest salaries among all states nationwide, and the states largest metropolitan areas and its bigger cities offer the lowest paying urban jobs in America. The states reliance on the service sector may account for the prevalence of low-wage jobs, but these jobs also pay less in Florida than cities anywhere else in the country. This is what workers seeking a livable wage call losing ground. Q „ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

Some of us think of the place you now stand as the anteroom of the U.S. House of Representatives and the Florida Senate, which is not the worst place in the world. But its no place wed let our children hang around, thats for sure. By winning your primaries against other Republicans on Tuesday in U.S. District 19 and state Districts 27 and 28, you very like-ly sealed victories in your November races. You have now reached the sub-pinnacle of political power and leadership in Wash-ington and in Tallahassee, since Democrats are about as common as Florida panthers in your districts. The November assault mounted by your Democratic party oppo-nents will likely prove as effective as the Charge of the Light Brigade. Congratulations on your victories.The pinnacle of political power (should you ever have the audacity to emerge from the sub-pinnacle, of course) is the White House. At the sound of the bell, you in particular, Francis, or you, Chauncey, will come swinging out of the District 19 corner weighing in at about 170 pounds and wear-ing not the purple trunks but a dark suit and tie, with your millions packed in your gloves like rolls of quarters. Coming out of the other corner will be a woman who gets to sleep in the White House for the next four years. Her politi-cal weight: about 200 tons. This is not the Bush administration, Chauncey. And Fran-cis? She wont think youre the coolest guy on the planet because you run construction and oil companies, have a lot of money and go to church on Sunday. So good luck, pal, and Vaya con Dios. If you dont know what it means, you should look it up, since a lot of voters do. But you, Lizbeth, and you, Matt, or you, Kathleen „ youll have your challenges, too. The problem for all of you is water. And water can be turned into wine, as some of you know, so dont ignore this problem. (By the way, I prefer a very dry French Sauvi-gnon Blanc in the whites, or if you must because you Republicans apparently like the color of blood, an Argentinian Malbec in the reds.) Weve really screwed up our water, Francis, no matter what the people in your oil companies, the ones that drill in the Gulf, tell you when you convene for board meet-ings. And Kathleen, Matt, Lizbeth? You three. Please. Nobody is trying to take away our guns. Its a nonissue. Also, the flood of illegal immigrants has subsided as all the numbers suggest, but not the flood of pol-luted water. So could all of you please start focusing on what actually matters at this point in time? Mother Teresa of Calcutta said this, Francis „ and Id like all of you to heed it before you move into the White House someday: Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leav-ing happier.Ž She was not talking about sugar lobbyists, by the way. The bottom line is this: Floridas economy and appeal are dying by the minute, by the yard and by the year because we arent stopping companies that run cows or grow sugar, or local governments that dont regu-late septic systems, or cities that continue to dump bad water into good, from poison-ing what we have in small, incremental ways, every day, week, month and year. We dont even let water flow in the right direction and quantities. And we could. Result? Dead fish. Dead tourism. Dead businesses. And if you let it happen, dead Florida lifestyle and dead economy. We dont care whos to blame: Big Ag and Big Sugar? Sure. Septic? Yep.Development and greedy local leadership? Democrats? Martians? Well, of course.But we just dont care. We want you to fix it and we agree that all of them and all of us should help pay for it. And you can. Your mothers would have wanted you to fix it. All of your grandpar-ents would have been proud of you for fix-ing it. Think about them. Do you really care what lobbyists and officials for big compa-nies that make money from bad solutions and bad science care about, in this issue? Would your mothers have cared? Look, water is precious, and if you think Im patronizing you, Im not. Water is pre-cious. We have to protect it from people who will use it for gain. Commies, for example. Let me just remind you of the immortal words of Gen. Jack D. Ripper, who launched a nuclear war from the Alas-kan SAC base he commanded in Stanley Kubricks blistering 1964 film, Dr. Strange-love,Ž to prot ect our water: Mandrake, have you ever seen a commie drink a glass of water?Ž Well, no, I cant say that I have,Ž replies Group Capt. Lionel Mandrake of the Royal Air Force. Its because they pollute our waters,Ž replies the general. I can no longer sit back and allow communist infiltration, commu-nist indoctrination, communist subversion and the international communist conspira-cy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.Ž Our precious bodily fluids, Francis. Hear that, Chauncey? Matt? Kathleen? Lizbeth? Jason? Its incredibly obvious, isnt it?Ž The general concludes. A foreign substance is introduced into our precious bodily fluids without the knowledge of the individual and certainly without any choice. Thats the way your hard core commie works.Ž You should know that, all of you aspiring leaders. So I welcome you „ you primary winners „and I also implore you: Help us save our precious body fluids. Also known as our magnificent Florida water. Q The Colin Powell defenseThe influence that Colin Powell has over Hillary Clinton is something to behold. His word is her command. When he tells her to break the law and endanger the nations secrets, she doesnt hesitate. She salutes smartly and does as she is told. Clinton has been desperate for the moral cover of Colin Powell for her email arrangement since the scandal first broke last year. Now weve learned that Clinton told the FBI that Powell advised her to use private email as sec-retary of state at a dinner in 2009. This escalates Clintons email defense from Hey, Colin Powell did it, too,Ž all the way to Colin Powell made me do it.Ž The Powell defense doesnt make much sense. While the former gen-eral used a private email as secretary of state, it was at a time when the depart-ment didnt have a robust email system of its own. And he obviously didnt set up his own private server. After Powell left State, the departments rules steadily got stricter about using official email for State Department business and preserv-ing email records „ and Clinton blew through them all. On the advice, we are supposed to believe, of none other than Colin Powell, the Professor Moriarty of Clintons illicit email practices.The New York Times reported that at a dinner party hosted by former Sec-retary of State Madeleine Albright that included other former secretaries of state, Albright asked Clintons predeces-sors what counsel they would give her. Allegedly, Powell didnt advise Clinton (channeling Winston Churchill) that diplomacy is the art of telling people to go to hell in such a way that they ask for directions,Ž or even to avoid a land war in Asia. He told her to use private email. Powell says now thats not how he remembers it. If Clinton really wanted someones permission to use private email, she could have asked the State Department, which she never did. In a new book, the left-wing journalist Joe Conason writes that Clinton had already decided to use private email months before the Albright dinner. Of course she had, and for her own reasons. She wanted to hide as much of her business as possible from journalists and congressional committees seeking information on how she operated. Given the gross intermingling of State Depart-ment and Clinton Foundation business, this was only prudent. No wonder that Colin Powell finds Hillarys effort to enlist him as one of the justifications for her private server so galling. Powell told a reporter, Her people have been trying to pin it on me.Ž Referring to a description of his email practices he sent to her (at her request), Powell said, The truth is, she was using (her private server) for a year before I sent her a memo telling her what I did.Ž No one forced Hillary to use her private email for State Department business in a manner so flagrantly against the rules. And no one forced her and her husband to run their foundation as a vast pay-to-play scheme whose inner work-ings must be shielded from public view. Thats her responsibility and no one elses „ certainly not Colin Powells. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly roger

A6 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1-7, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESLonghaired pets require extra care to maintain their luxurious locks BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickFrom the Maltese to the Afghan hound, the Persian to the Maine coon, longhaired dogs and cats have a reputation for beauty and style. Their glamorous appearance comes at a price, though: That gorgeous coat can be a beast to care for. If youve fallen for a pet with long locks, weve gathered some tips to help you keep that coat stunning, healthy and tangle-free. First, the bad news: Theres no secret shortcut to caring for a long coat. It takes time and devotion. Youre ahead of the game, though, if you groom it on a regu-lar basis. When a longhaired pets coat is neglected, the result is painful mats and tangles. Nobody wants that. Grooming needs depend on the type of coat a dog or cat has, as well as its length. Longhaired pets may have a single coat or a double coat (one with a top coat and an under layer). They may have feathering (longer hair on the ears, chest, legs and tail); thick, fine, silky hair; or ruffs, britch-es or pantaloons. Double-coated pets typ-ically shed more than single-coated pets. Gather the right equipment. A pin brush moves smoothly through long hair and feathering. A bristle brush removes loose hair and dirt and polishes the coat. A wide-tooth comb removes downy under-coat. The curved wire pins of a slicker brush remove mats, loose hair and any flotsam and jetsam your dog picks up on a walk. Dogs with thick double coats may benefit from a session with an undercoat rake, especially during shedding season. If possible, ask a breeder or a professional groomer about the correct grooming tools and techniques to use. Keep the face clean. Dogs with beards, mustaches and eyebrows (known as fur-nishings) lose their distinguished appear-ance if food is stuck in their fur. Comb out the furnishings after every meal to keep them looking nice. Other trouble spots include the belly, the area where the legs meet the body (the underarmsŽ) and the urogenital area. Many pets dont like having these areas touched (maybe theyre ticklish). If you neglect them, though, these areas are most likely to develop mats and tangles. If you comb them before a problem starts, it will be a lot easier to accustom your pet to the attention. Watch for a poopy butt. Every longhaired pet gets it at one time or another. Get over the ick factor and check your pets rear regularly to make sure no dingleberries are dangling from his fur. You may want to trim the area short to help keep it clean. Or have a professional groomer do a sani-tary trim for a neater appearance. Starting with a puppy? Practice for a few minutes every day. Even if your pup wont have his full coat for a year or two, he should learn now what to expect and how to stand nicely for it. You can gradu-ally lengthen the amount of time you spend working on his coat. Give extra care to aging or overweight longhaired pets. Cats, in particular, may have difficulty grooming themselves and need some additional attention. Pay attention if your pet frequently bites or scratches at a specific area. On closer inspection, you may find a mat or tangle that needs attention. Be careful when trying to remove these. Severe mats may need professional attention. When his coat is at its full glory, you should expect to groom your longhaired pet at least every other day. For some pets, daily attention is a must. If you have trained your dog or cat to enjoy groom-ing, the experience should be a bonding time for both of you. Q The frequency of grooming a longhaired pet ranges from daily to weekly. Pets of the Week>> Malia is a 2-year-old, 45-pound female mixed breed dog that is crate trained.

On recent trips I was saddened to see all the bikes and parts were gone. Someone must have told the owner he had to clean it up or he moved or passed away. On my last trip I finally saw the bicycle man! He was working on a trike in his yard so I pulled over to photograph him. He was skeptical of me at first but after I explained the curiosity I had on so many passings he warmed up and gave me his blessing to make this picture.

Couples are choosing more and more frequently to live in an intimate but independent relationship. Since early 2000, the divorce rate among Americans in a first marriage has dropped by almost 6%. Although the divorce rate among all marriages in the United States is still close to 50%, relationships appear to be longer lasting. What is less commonly known, however, is that because more couples are choosing not to marry, the number of children born out of wedlock is sky-rocketing. In 2012, 40% of children were born to parents who were not married. By 2015, that percentage rose to over 50%. Paternity filings are at record highs. Contributing to this record number is the ongoing urban myth that unprotected sex leading to the birth of a child creates no consequences. Many famous and infamous one-night stands have led even the elite into court proceedings during which they are held responsible for child support and other child related expenses. Charlie Chaplin is a prime example. In 1945, he was determined by a California court to be the father of a child he claims could not have been his. Eddie Murphy, Larry Birkhead, Boris Becker, and Steve Jobs, among others, carry the dubious title of baby-daddy after brief, and sometimes, momentary flings. Worse, these fathers labored under the assumption that they had equal rights to their unborn children, even though no marriage existed. As they quickly leaned, nothing could be further from the truth. Until a petition is filed and a court makes a finding as to who the actual father of the child is, the mother has all the rights. The alleged father has no decision making authority and cannot even stop the mother from leaving without the filing of a legal action. Finding out your rights is the first step.

The expansion includes 5,000 square feet of office space, as well as a sig-nificantly larger warehouse that will help the organization meet the growing needs of children and adults across the county to access vital medical equipment.

The area experienced record-breaking half-year visitation, according to STR. Palm Beach County had 3.9 million visitors for the first half of 2016 (January through June), which is a four percent increase over the same time last year. Hotel managers are saying much the same, at least about the high occupancy rate in July. We had a fantastic July and saw an influx of visitors who traveled anywhere from four hours to 10 minutes to visit us at Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island,Ž said Stacy Lee, director of sales and marketing at Palm Beach Marriott Sing-er Island Beach Resort & Spa. Visi-tors from the Northeast, Midwest and international destinations frequented the resort, as well as a healthy number of staycations from local area residents.Ž Similarly, July was exceptionally good for Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa in Manalapan, accord-ing to public rela-tions director Nick Gold. But while the first half of the year was good, it was not record-breaking for Eau. Mr. Gold attributes Julys high occupancy to several things: There were five weekends in that month; summer rates are in place; Florida resident rates start at $199 a night; the resort offers a third night free promotion; July 4 was on a Monday, so guests extended their stay, the Dave Matthews concert was held on the last weekend of the month and resulted in high occupancy; and the resort had an outstanding month with group business. The Breakers in Palm Beach also had high occupancy during the summer, said Shannon OMalley, media relations and communications manager. Year over year, we are fortunate to experience strong bookings through the summer months in both the leisure travel and meetings markets,Ž Ms. OMalley said. Historically we see the greatest number of summer guests joining us from within the state of Florida, followed by New York, and the same is true this year. This years seasonal promotion for leisure guests, which features special nightly room rates and generous com-plimentary daily benefits and additional savings, has enticed travelers to visit The Breakers as either a first time guest, or to return and experience our most recent enhancements,Ž she said. Some B&Bs had better occupancy this Juy, too. We can fully confirm Jorges state-ments for July 2016,Ž said Peter Emmerich, one of the owners of Grandview Gardens B&B in West Palm Beach. We had a 7 percent higher occu-pancy and 22 percent higher revenue com-paring year-to-date July 2015 to July 2016.Ž However, during the first half of the year, numbers at the B&B remained the same as last year, he said. Our mix of guests is strongly influenced in season by New York City and the Northeast (a lot of family and leisure visits), the Convention Center (art show exhibitors), Norton Museum (guest speak-ers, curators) and Palm Beach Atlantic University (parents),Ž Mr. Emmerich said. Additionally, we have a great niche with the European tour operator market, which influences our summer business strongly, too, about 30 to 40 percent of our occupancy, couples and fami-lies. And yes, staycations are up, if you include Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlan-do, especially on the weekend (maybe 30 percent of our occupancy).Ž The reason July is up? We seem to be seeing many more families,Ž Mr. Emm-erich said. Obviously, West Palm Beach as a destination has become attractive and safe for them. And less crowded, loud and expensive than Miami and Fort Lauderdale.Ž Not everyone could identify with the latest statistics from STR. John Rinaldi, owner of Sabal Palm House Bed and Breakfast in Lake Worth, said he didnt see anything like what is being reported. Our July occupancy was down 1 percent, so it was average for this time of year,Ž Mr. Rinaldi said. However our August occupancy is down 57 percent from last year, which is major. We are not getting business from the Orlando or Miami areas and our foreign business is dead. We received many calls asking us about our algae problems in the begin-ning of the month and the reports of Zika are not helping. I honestly think that some of these numbers being reported are for just a few properties.Ž Discover the Palm Beach maintains that the county is on pace for record-breaking visitation for the calendar year of 2016, with an anticipated 7.2 million visitors by the end of 2016. The Palm Beaches is expected to surpass its record hotel room supply, up 4 percent over this time last year, and 9 percent more room nights were sold. The growth in number of hotel room nights sold compared to last year ranks second in the entire state, according to Discover the Palm Beaches. But only time will tell.

It cuts across all ages and is happening on both coasts. Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers has seen a 48 percent increase in heat-related admissions this summer over the last year. According to hospital officials, local visits have ranged the full gamut of heat-related syndromes, from muscle cramps to heat exhaustion and stroke. While mild forms of the condition are easily treated with fluids and electrolytes, heat stroke can fatally damage a persons vital organs and muscle tissue. There is a high likelihood of death if a patient with heat stroke does not receive treatment,Ž said Dr. Lawrence Isaacs, an emergency medicine physician at Gulf Coast Medical Center. Even with treatment there is approximately a 10 per-cent mortality with true heat stroke. The long-term consequences „ even with treatment „ can be renal failure, brain injury, liver damage and lung injuries. Some of these injuries are reversible.Ž Though certain populations „ like small children and the elderly „ are more at risk than others, admissions to local emergency rooms seem to divide between levels of activity, he said. Older patients are presenting with milder forms of heat illnesses, while younger people who are physically active in the heat, like foot-ball players and roofers, arrive with more severe cases of heat exhaustion and stroke. Younger, healthier patients tend to get heat stroke from exerting themselves, typi-cally through hard labor or exercising,Ž said Dr. Chantelle Dufresne, an emergen-cy medicine physican at Good Samaritan Medical Center in West Palm Beach. In elderly or debilitated patients, they are usually somewhere where it is hot outside or the a/c is broken and they are poorly nourished.Ž Florida, like the rest of the country, is setting records for high temperatures this summer, which possibly contributes to Lee Memorial Hospitals increase in heat-related admissions. Seven cities, including Tampa and Fort Lauderdale, experienced the hottest July on record. Heat exhaustion can often be treated without an emergency room visit, but a person who has an elevated body tempera-ture or is disoriented should make the trip, Dr. Dufresne said. It is something to take seriously and it is better to be safe,Ž she said. While its common knowledge that drinking water is an essential component of summer safety, most people dont know that maintaining their electrolyte levels is just as crucial to avoiding heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Sweating sheds salts like sodium and potassium and low levels can cause seizures. Water is simply not enough if youre working or exercising outside for extended periods of time. Drinking too much plain water will hydrate you, but can lower your sodium level,Ž Dr. Isaacs said. This is why sports drinks are better than plain old water if youre going to be very active in hot weath-er. They contain water and electrolytes.Ž People who are admitted to the emergency room with a heat-related illness will be cooled down immediately with cold intravenous fluids and ice packs, or possi-bly an ice bath in severe cases. From there, doctors will address any internal damage overheating may have caused. To be safe this summer, be on the lookout for dark-colored urine, dizziness, fainting, headache, muscle or abdomi-nal cramps, gastrointestinal upset, pro-fuse sweating and a rapid heartbeat. Once noted, a person should drink lots of fluid, remove tight clothing, take a cool shower and sit near fans or apply cool towels. If symptoms persist for longer than fifteen minutes, go to the hospital. Children under the age of 4 and adults 65 and older are more susceptible to heat-related problems because their bodies do not quickly adjust to high outdoor tem-peratures. Q Watch for these signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion:>> Dark-colored urine (a sign of dehydration) >> Dizziness >> Fainting >> Headache >> Muscle or abdominal cramps >> Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea >> Profuse sweating >> Rapid heartbeat DUFRESNE

Even if its weeks before your due date, call your doctor if you have any of the following signs of labor: Q Contractions that become stronger at regular and increasingly shorter intervals Q Lower back pain and cramping that does not go away Q Your water breaks (can be a large gush or a continuous trickle) Q You have a bloody (brownish or redtinged) mucus discharge Now that youre familiar with the signs of labor, consider developing a birth plan to communicate how you want labor and delivery to go. It can help you feel more confident about the birth and be involved in the decision-making process, even if there are unforeseen circumstances. You may want to include whom you want in your labor room for support, your pain management preferences and your desire to hold or nurse your baby right after birth. Once your birth plan is completed, share a copy with your doctor and the hospital where you plan to give birth, and pack one in your overnight bag to take with you. No matter what day of the year your labor dayŽ occurs, at St. Marys Medical Center, we deliver for you and work with you to meet your preferences whenever possible for your comfort, joy and peace of mind. With our Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit „ Floridas high-est designated level„ and an on-site team of specialists available 24/7, you and your baby are in good hands. Thats why more expectant mothers choose St. Marys over any other hospital in Palm Beach County. If you have questions about having your baby at St. Marys or would like to take a tour, please call our OB navigator at 882-6183.

But carefully planned visits for a dozen official reasons, including travel for general educational purposes, have opened the door to groups, individuals and even luxury cruise ships that now take Ameri-cans to visit the storied island nation.Travel agents in South Florida have had mixed success booking trips there since diplomatic ties were re-established last year for the first time in more than five decades. On the one hand, they say, there is a pent-up desire for many to see Cuba after being shut out for so long, to see what travelers perceive as a more authentic version of the country before American tourism and business „ if and when its allowed „ could transform the landscape with Cancn-style beach resorts and Starbucks.

She has also traveled to Cuba on the Fathom Cruise Lines Adonia, which is owned by Carni-val. Both trips have price tags upwards of $4,000. My clients who are going and have gone with me are very experienced travelers,Ž she said. Theyve had a pent-up desire to go to Havana and theyre willing to accept some of the regulations to have that experience before it gets too touristy. Were all selling Cuba in my office.Ž On the other hand, U.S. travelers are forced to stick to a set schedule of activi-ties. The cost of trips is relatively high, and there are other inconveniences in a country with crumbling infrastructure. Internet service is spotty, and U.S. credit and debit cards dont yet work in Cuba „ its cash only. Tour operators are required to keep records showing where they went, and Americans accustomed to being able to go where they please or to being ensconced in lush resorts might be disap-pointed. Visitors at times forgo niceties like air conditioning or bottled water. The countrys lack of polish also has its charms, such as the 1950s cars for which the island is known. Its not going to be like going to Cancn,Ž said David Dowrick, owner of The Travel Gallery in Tequesta. But I think people come back and they enjoy it as long as you go with the right frame of mind, youre not going to be able to just go off and lay on the beach and have a drink. Thats not what its about, not now at least, because tourism hasnt been approved.Ž He also pointed out in an email, These restrictions do not apply to Canadians or Europeans. About 1 million Canadians visited Cuba last year, representing about 40 percent of all visitors.Ž Among the 12 categories of travel allowed for U.S. citizens are general activ-ities for cultural and educational purposes usually referred to as people-to-peopleŽ travel. According to the U.S. Embassy in Havana that means maintaining a full-time schedule of educational exchange activities ƒ that will result in meaningful interaction between the traveler and indi-viduals in Cuba.Ž Lynnette Lydic, a Fort Myers-based travel agent with Concierge Cruises, studied up on Cuba to sell trips on Fath-oms Adonia after diplomacy thawed, but so far few clients have been interested. I really thought that it was going to pick up but theres still so many restrictions on it,Ž she said. A lot of people think its a tourist thing and you can go and have a drink on the beach, and you cant, you have to stay with your group. The good thing about the travel, though, is the group is taking you to places that you want to see anyway.Ž Pamela White, a Port Charlotte-based agent with Time 2 Travel Agency, said clients who have inquired about a trip to Cuba decided not to go. Most of what I have seen personally is people are still wait-ing for those restric-tions to let up. I have not had anyone who wants to go yet. They want to do their own thing, be able to hang out on the beach.ŽGroup toursTravel Gallery owner Mr. Dowrick recommended going on a visit through an established tour operator instead of try-ing to plan your own people-to-peopleŽ trip. A tour operator will take care of all the government paperwork for you, and solo travelers have reported spending a lot of time trying to find transportation, bottled water and facilities up to the standards we enjoy here in the states,Ž he wrote in an email. Tour operators have done the homework for you. They select the best hotels, restaurants and modes of transportation so travelers can enjoy the cultural exchange.Ž Another option that he calls Cuba-liteŽ is to take Fathoms Adonia cruise ship on a seven-day tour. Preferred Travel consultant Ms. Moody has experienced Cuba both on a group visit last January organized by a luxury travel company, and on the cruise. The group tour left Southwest Florida on a Wednesday night and flew out of Miami on Thursday morning for a long weekend on the island, returning on Sun-day afternoon. The accommodations, the food, the experience the group and I had in January, everybody said it far exceeded expecta-tions,Ž Ms. Moody said. Among the authorized events on their schedule, they went to a farmers market, met artists, musicians and a professor of sociology from the University of Havana. They enjoyed meals at family-run restau-rants and stayed at the historic Art Deco Hotel Nacional de Cuba. The cruise ship, which can hold 704 passengers, sailed from Miami and vis-ited Havana, Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba. Its nice to have your ship be your floating hotel to come home to,Ž she said.Family visitThose who go to Cuba to visit fam-ily have the chance to see a country that other U.S. citizens cant. Kristina Gear visited the island where her parents were born for the first time last Decem-ber, meeting cousins, nieces and neph-ews. On Christmas Eve they roasted a pig, drank Havana Club rum and, of course, played dominoes. We kind of wanted to go before things changed too much because I had never been and I wanted to see how it really was before the Americans got in,Ž said Ms. Gear, who is herself an American, born in Naples. She works for Preferred Travel as assistant to the president. Ms. Gear visited family both in Cotorro, outside Havana, and then in a town called Camajuan. The road trip to Camajuan was one example of why Cubas infra-structure isnt yet ready for American tourism.I think the infrastructure will be the biggest obstacle, because its very rough in a lot of areas,Ž she said, including power outages, and lack of access to basics such as clothes, toiletries and drinking water. And if people go to a country, theyre going to want to wander throughout and driving was awful. The potholes are like sinkholes and you cant go very fast because you dont know when the next ones going to come.Ž She believes that potential American tourism and other investment in Cuba, while having some drawbacks, will raise the quality of life for her family and oth-ers there. Honestly, I think it would be really good for the people because they deserve to have what the rest of the world has,Ž she said. That appears to be happening little by little. For instance, major airlines were approved by the Transportation Depart-ment to start flights to Havana late this summer and in the fall from 10 U.S. cities, including Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Tampa. Approved airlines include Alaska, American, Delta, Frontier, JetBlue, South-west, Spirit and United. Today we take another important step toward delivering on President Obamas promise to re-engage Cuba,Ž Transporta-tion Secretary Anthony Foxx said in a news release in July. Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) is not among the airports with major carriers offering flights to Cuba „ at least initially. We applied and we wrote a letter and we didnt get it, but theyre the bigger markets so we really werent surprised by it,Ž said Carol Obermeier, director of air service development at RSW. Were going to be watching very closely how those scheduled carriers perform.ŽShe added, Thats a lot of capacity going into Havana (Jos Mart Internation-al Airport) and its a very small airport.Ž Q CUBAFrom page 20 The 12 categories of travel to Cuba authorized by the U.S. government Family visits; of cial business of the U.S. government, foreign governments, and certain intergovernmental organizations; journalistic activity; professional research and professional meetings; educational activities; religious activi-ties; public performances, clinics, workshops, athletic and other competitions, and exhibitions; support for the Cuban people; humanitarian projects; activities of private foundations or research or educational institutes; exportation, importation or transmission of information or informational materials; and certain authorized export transactions. Visits for educational activities and support for the Cuban people include general trips called "people-to-people travel." What does that allow? Travelers utilizing this general license must ensure they maintain a full-time schedule of educational exchange activities intended to enhance contact with the Cuban people, support civil society in Cuba, or promote the Cuban people's independence from Cuban authorities, and that will result in meaningful interac-tion between the traveler and individuals in Cuba In addition, persons relying upon this authorization must retain records related to the authorized travel transactions, including records demonstrating a full-time schedule of authorized activities. — Source: PREFERRED TRAVEL OF NAPLES COURTESY PHOTOSChristmas lights hang from an apartment above a typical street in Havana last December.DOWRICK WHITE LYDIC GEAR MOODY

Often, interest in the characters dies about 25 years after the last new epi-sode of their shows are shown. Some have continued to be popular because of TV reruns and their rebirth in new movies, comics or even plays. UnderdogŽ was one of the characters created in 1959 f or television cartoons selling General Mills cereal. In 1969, the show lost its sponsor, but 62 shows continued in syndication. They can be seen on TV, and other syndi-cated shows with Underdog as the hero were edited, rewritten and re-bundled to remain on TV until the late 1990s. Many years on the air have helped UnderdogŽ collectibles remain popu-lar and expensive. A 1974 childs metal UnderdogŽ lunchbox and thermos sold at a auction in fall 2015 for $2,296. Q: I have an old blue leather rocking chair with horsehair stuffing and fringe around the bottom. I was told it was my grandmothers and that she brought it over from Germany. The only marking on it is a round b utton on the back that I believe reads Karpen Furniture.Ž Can you provide any information and maybe a value? A: Your chair was made by S. Karpen & Bros. of Chicago, Ill. Solomon Karpen, along with his nine brothers, started the company in 1880, and by 1900, it was the largest manufacturer of upholstered furniture in the world. By 1927, Karpen had also built factories in Long Island City, N.Y., Michigan City, Ind., and Los Angeles, employing 1,800 workers. Karpen was in business until 1952. Y our chair is in very distressed condition and it would be very expensive to recover. Any value it has would be sentimental. Q: My sister was given a black Couroc serving tray with 37 presidential coins in it. The coin representing Presi-dent Gerald R. Ford is in the center. Its 18 by 12 inches. What can you tell me about it? A: The Couroc Co. was founded in Monterey, Calif., by Guthrie Courvoisier in 1948. The name is derived from the first four letters of his last name, Cour,Ž with ocŽ added to make it sound like rock.Ž Most Couroc items were made of black resin and embedded with coins, wood, metal or objects from nature. Courvoisier died in 1963 and the company closed in the 1990s. The value of your tray is about $30. Q: More than 20 years ago, I purchased three electric light bulbs that are not just light bulbs. They have animals inside and light up when turned on. Two have dogs and one has a donkey. I cant find any numbers or markings on them and I am wondering if you can tell me when they were made and what they might be worth. A: Light bulbs with glowing figural objects inside were first made in the 1930s. They were invented by Philip Kayatt, founder and president of Aerolux Light Corp. of New York City, who patented the first novelty filament glow light in 1935. From 1938 until the early 1970s, Aerolux made gas-discharge light bulbs with small figures in the bulbs. Called cheer lights,Ž the low-wattage bulbs could be used in standard electric lamps. When the lamps were turned on, the figures glowed orange, pink, green or purple. Dogs were made from about 1938, and donkeys were made between 1940 and 1950. Other companies made similar bulbs. The value of glow bulbs can go from $15 to $65. Q: I found an old post office box door in a box of things that were in my uncles barn. It looks like its bronze. The door has an eagle holding a bunch of arrows above a glass window. There is a combination lock dial above the eagle. Is this collectible? A: There are collectors interested in old post office box doors. They have been made of bronze, gold-painted alu-minum and other metals. Doors with an eagle holding arrows that were first used in about 1906 are fairly common. Some old doors have been made into a box-shaped bank. Most doors sell for under $25. Tip: Do not wrap or store scrapbooks in furniture made with pressboard. The pressboard emits gases over the years. Q „ Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column. Write to Kovels, (Florida Weekly), King Features Syndicate, 300 W. 57th St., New York, NY 10019. „ Scott Simmons Collectors Corner will return.Underdog is pictured on this metal lunch box and matching thermos that auctioned for $2,296.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1-7, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B3Q Mud Bog MurderŽ by Lesley A. Diehl. Camel Press. 268 pages. Trade paperback, $15.95. Cozy mysteries have established themselves as a thriving mystery subgenre. While theres plenty of suspense and plenty of investigatory action, the cozies have a warm feeling. Often humorous and usually uplifting, they are on the other side of noir. While the queen of this category is Nancy J. Cohen (who even wrote a how-to book about this subgenre), Lesley A. Diehl is a contender. Mud Bog Murder,Ž the fourth Eve Appel Mystery, is set in a place called Sabal Bay, Fla., which I take to be a fictional stand-in for Ms. Diehls rural resi-dence of Okeechobee. Here, on the ranching property owned by Jenny McCleary, disas-ter strikes during the mud bog race, a favor-ite local entertainment that can bring the person whose property is rented a nice piece of change. In fact, the disaster strikes Jenny, whose severed head is found flying through the air, spun up by the churning wheels of a participating monster truck. Pieces of her alligator-torn body are found near the Miccosukee tribes airboat business. Jenny had recently begun shopping at the quality second-hand clothing busi-ness owned and run by Eve Appel and her pregnant friend, Madeleine. Theirs is a mobile business about to be transformed into a fixed address store in town. Eve and Madeleine might have become friends with Jenny, who was about the only property owner around who didnt resent seeing the shop owners among the environmental protesters at the mud bog race. Why should these two be telling the ranchers how to use their land and trying to take away the pleasures of monster truck fans? Resentment toward the protesters threatens the business. Eve and Mad-eleine cant even get local trades people to do repairs on the building, which the previous owner left in terrible condition. When Eves friend Grandfather Egret (his grandson Sammy is cautiously attract-ed to Eve) is arrested for the murder, Eve just knows this is a mistake and has to prove it. Alex, her PI boyfriend, resents her snooping ways, as does Frida, a local police officer. Yet Eve pushes on, and Alex becomes enlisted in the investigation. All want to help bring jus-tice for Jennys teenage daughter, Shelley, who in her disorienting grief has begun leaning on Darrel, the exploitative, abusive lowlife she calls her boyfriend. Who would have had it in for Jenny? Where do the clues point? Most readers will focus on the sleuthing team that grows to include not only Eve and Alex, but also Madeleines husband, David; Eves former hus-band, Jerry; Sammy Egret and Eves dear Nappi Napolitani, the local mafia kingpin (you better believe it). One after another, sus-pects are identified and rejected „ until only one is left. Among these are the rival property owners seeking the benefit of contracting for the mud bog race. Another center of interest is Eves fear of romantic commitment, which grew out of her wretched marriage to Jerry. Alex is pushing to tie the knot, but Eve keeps pushing him away. His anger is palpable, as is her uncertainty. Sl owly, an attr action builds between Eve and Sammy Egret. An awkward situation for both of them at first, it gathers strength and naturalness through the novel. These plot interests combine with FLORIDA WRITERSRural Florida town harbors a nutcase killer and a nosy sleuth phil Lesley A. Diehl retired from her life as a professor of psychology and reclaimed her country roots by moving to a small cottage in the Butternut River Valley in upstate New York. In the winter she migrates to old Florida, with its cowboys, scrub palmetto and open elds of grazing cattle a place where spurs still jingle in the post of ce.Florida Weekly's Phil Jason had the pleasure of posing her a few questions. Find out more about her at Which parts of the writing process do you enjoy the most, and which the least?A: I enjoy creating the rst draft where the ideas are fresh and come together in interesting ways. Since I like to insert humor into my cozy mysteries, this time in the writing is when I sometimes am so pleased with a clever scene or piece of dialogue that I laugh out loud. If I nd it funny, I want to believe others will also.The least fun is with edits after I've already edited several times. This is when I begin to see the story and characters emerging with greater depth and complexity. Painful as this editing is, it also gives me great pleasure to know how much better the writing is because I've worked it over so many times. Q: Do you revise by wholes (full rough draft followed by a series of whole book revisions) or by parts (write a few pages, revise, write a few more pages, revise), or some other habit? A: I revise what I have written the day before and use this as a way of keeping the story owing and connected. I then may go back and revise a chapter. When I have a rst revision, I will go through it and revise several times again. I also read the work out loud and print it out to make edits on a written page. After that, my editor gets it and we revise again. Q: You say your Eve character has been improved over the four books. How has that happened?A: Eve's signature characteristic was that she was an in-your-face kind of gal, a lively character, and one who usually took chances and went her own way. She was loyal to her friends and brilliant at sleuthing. I have begun to morph her into someone who retains her sass but who is more considerate of others and not so quick to take chances now that her life circumstances have changed. How has her life changed? That's part of the next several books, kind of a surprise I don't want to give away. Let me just say that Eve is more multidimensional now. I'm spending just as much time now with Eve as a character as I spend with the plot, and I love the twists and turns of plotting. Q: What generated the mud bog races idea? A: Mud bog racing came to the area of rural Florida where I live in the winter and, with it, some clashes between economic issues and environmental ones. This clash is at the center of the plot in "Mud Bog Murder," and I pit Eve and Madeleine's concern with the environment against those who want to use the races to make money. The county can use an in ux of money, but the way it's usually done in Florida is by ignoring wildlife and land use issues and putting development rst. That con ict has come to rural Florida as it did to the coastal areas. Q Catching up with the writer DIEHL other features to provide a multifaceted reading experience. Richly drawn charac-ters like Eve and her grandmother can be at once endearing and irritating. Darrel is a perfectly despicable bad boy. Grand-father Egret has wisdom, patience and courage. Ms. Diehl examines several relationships in rewarding depth. She also provides an entertaining overview of the cultural climate in rural Flor-idas small, inland communities „ this one within shopping distance of West Palm Beach, where Eve and Madeleine get those upper-class cast-offs to market back in Sable Bay. Read it and smile.

NoThe tagline of Southside with YouŽ is inherently appealing, as it promises a candid look at Barack and Michelle Obamas first date in the summer of 1989. What it actually delivers, however, is a love letter to the current First Couple, one that depicts them with copious posi-tivity and uses negative topics, such as Baracks negligent father, as sources of inspiration to make a difference. Im not a betting man, but Im willing to bet writer/director Richard Tanne is a Democrat. Bias aside, the reality is almost the entire movie is fraudulent. Although Mr. Tanne researched the story by reading accounts given by the Obamas about their first date, this only means the loca-tions are accurate, not the conversation. The fictionalized discussion would be more tolerable if the dialog were inter-esting and about more than personal biographies and life philosophies, but it is not. Combined with low-budget production values and standard editing, the whole thing plays like a made-for-TV movie. They spend an entire afternoon and evening together, though Michelle (Tika Sumpter) insists it isnt a date. Shes Baracks (Parker Sawyers) advisor at their law firm, and with her establishing professional credibility and him on loan from Harvard Law School for the sum-mer, shes worried about how itll look. But hes a smooth-talker and undeterred, and as they venture from an art museum to a walk in a park to the movies for Spike Lees Do The Right Thing,Ž she gradually warms to him. Their conversation is uncannily personal (her fathers MS) and revelatory (hes dated white women), much more than one would expect on a typical first date. She says she wants to help women and empower them. He says he feels a bigger calling in civil rights or, maybe, politics. Mr. Tanne isnt overtly foreshad-owing the lives they are about to lead, but its obviously where the viewers mind is going to go and therefore seems intentional on the directors part. And then there are moments that dont belong in the movie at all. A good 15 min-utes (of the 84-minute run time) is set at a proposal for a community center meet-ing in which Barack doesnt even sit next to Michelle. Shes told by nosey women what a great guy he is as he shakes hands with everyone. The leader of the event is given harsh feedback from locals who dont feel like the community center will ever be approved. Good thing Barack is there to appease the masses. The thing is, this has little to do with their date and clearly wouldnt be in the movie if it didnt feature the cur-rent president of the United States as a younger man swaying an uneasy crowd to his side. It was lazy for Mr. Tanne to have a scene that feels this overwritten and tedious in a movie thats supposed to be about a budding love story, not a bud-ding political career. Worse „ and more unforgiveable „ is that (per the press notes) this meeting wasnt held on their first date, and therefore isnt authentic to the story. Its impossible to watch Southside with YouŽ without thinking about the Obamas today, which means every line of dialog adds insight and perspective into the couple currently running the United States of America. The problem is, we have no idea if any of the dialogue is genuine, and with a movie like this, that matters. Curiosity about the First Couple might be enough to inspire you to see this one, but knowing it lacks the substance it needs makes that a zero sum game. Q dan >> “Southside with You” was shot in 15 days at or near many of the actual locations of the rst date. FILM CAPSULESHands of Stone +++ (Robert De Niro, Edgar Ramirez, Ana de Armas) Based on a true story, boxer Roberto Duran (Mr. Ramirez) emerges from poverty in Panama to become a world champion. Solid performances and editing allow this part biopic/part boxing movie to be a thoroughly engag-ing drama. Rated R.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 action 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


B12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1-7, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYThey range from the haute restaurants in Palm Beach and top steakhouses around the county, to two newc omer small-plate specialists who will offer regional American dishes, and a private country club open to the public only dur-ing this promotion. Flavor Palm Beach menus are specially designed by each restaurant, and cost din-ers $30 for dinner, and $20 at lunch. It was designed to help out area restaurants in what is proven as the slowest month on their books. When I was doing market research for Flavor, Open Table, the food distributors, and others all said September was the best month for it; its the slowest for the restaurants.Ž Its during a hump after tourist summer season, and before the social season takes off. The promotion is a huge marketing pull; restaurants pay into a marketing fund, and ads for Flavor Palm Beach are placed across the county, the state and even nationally, Ms. Beaty said. It also benefits the areas hungry; $1 from each reservation made through the Flavor website goes to the Palm Beach County Food Bank. Its a win-win for restaurants, which get to showcase certain menu items, and often, gain new diners. Some restaurants have told us that for them, September is the most profitable month of the year,Ž she said. New restaurants are guided through menu selections. We dont want diners to have a different experience than they normally would. We work with the res-taurants to show their true menus. But we want to give them great value, too.Ž Frank Eucalitto, chef/owner of Caf Chardonnay in Palm Beach Gardens, has been participating in Flavor since its incep-tion, working with Ms. Beaty on menu structuring. Its a good way to get our name out there to a larger audience. Shes now doing restaurants from the whole county. People are seeing other restaurants they may not be familiar with,Ž he said. While some diners, especially those who travel a distance, wont become regulars, many become repeat customers. We get some who come for the first time who get to know us, find out about our event space, and are booking private events here. We do a lot of birthday parties and anniversaries.Ž Caf Chardonnay will be showcasing a three-course menu for Flavor that includes dishes off its main menu, such as shrimp and grits; handmade gnocchi and wild mushrooms; crab-crusted yellowtail snap-per; roasted rack of lamb; and its noted housemade tiramisu as its $30 dinner. Craft Bar Kitchen in Jupiter is a newcomer to the program and will be offering a four-course menu, along with discounts on its signature cocktails, according to Dormal Allen, general manager. Were looking forward to kind of getting our name out there, especially for those further south. We really dont do any advertising, so its been all word-of-mouth. We have an eclectic menu, which is what were known for. A really good lobster roll, and we have a hangar steak, chimichurri style with pico di gallo, and an oyster po boy „ as a Southern touch,Ž he said. Craft cocktails will be $5 off and include those specials such as the Clueless „ We were clueless as to what to name it,Ž Mr. Allen says „ made of Grey Goose pear vodka, lemon and lime juice and a touch of saffron. A watermelon-ginger martini, and the popular smoked old fashioned, made with actual smoked wood chips and infused with maple or cinnamon are among others offered. Were all about presentation concepts,Ž he said, noting that drinks are made in front of the guests so they can see exactly what goes into them. Salute Market is another newcomer, and co-owner Michelle Lefkowitz is looking forward to introducing the small-plate concept in Palm Beach Gardens to new-comers. When we first opened, we knew we had a lot of great things, but we werent sure what the customer wanted. So weve been evolving into a full-service restau-rant.Ž The tapas-and-wine concept still draws the diners, she said. We worked with Briana to come up with a small-plate menu that fits what we are about,Ž she said. Diners come and pick a few small plates, stay and have wine, and order some more. So we came up with a pick-three menu, playing off that.Ž Bacon-wrapped, goat-cheese-stuffed dates, and the chefs meatballs in mari-nara are among the plates theyll offer, each paired with a wine suggestion. Diners will be introduced to the big sandwiches at lunch „ including its now-famous stacked corned beef. Everybody says its the best in Palm Beach County,Ž Ms. Lefkowitz said. Other newcomers include Tansy and Little Chalet „ Boca Raton restaurants. Evo in Tequesta also joins this years lineup. Old favorites such as III Forks, a Texasbased steakhouse in Midtown in the Gar-dens, is back again, as is Capitol Grille in Legacy Place. These higher-end eateries represent good values for the diners who can drop upward of $80 or more per per-son off a regular menu. They are a great bang for the buck,Ž Ms. Beaty said, and their menus are really lovely.Ž Exclusive to the promotional month, Sandpiper C ove, a private restaur ant in Old Port Cove in North Palm Beach, is open to the public. Creative dishes here include a messy bowlŽ of shrimp and lobster, duck leg confit poutine, chicken under a brick with pickled watermelon and feta, and housemade Italian fritters. West Palm Beach restaurants include Jereve, the open-kitchen modern concept on Dixie Highway with outdoor seating, Maison Carlos, also on Dixie Highway, and Pistache „ a longtime favorite over-looking the fountains on Clematis Street offering French modern dishes. Prices range from $20 at lunch, to $45 for certain dinners, though most are priced at $30. No certificates or cou-pons are needed for the promotion, but reservations for the Flavor Palm Beach menu dinners are strongly suggested; many popular ones sell out. Not all serve the dinner daily „ some are on selected weeknights. A diners tip: Lunch is usu-ally easy to get into.

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1-7, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY VINONew Year’s resolutions that we can make anytime we wantSorry ƒI couldnt wait. The Chinese wont celebrate until the end of next January, but our Jewish friends are gear-ing up for their celebration in just a few weeks. So if you cant make resolutions now, then when? I recently discovered an old column Id saved from The Wall Street Journal from back in 2009, where thenwine writers Dorothy Gaiter and John Brecher made a list of 20 wine things to try in the new year. I said to myself, Why wait?Ž After all, we can have wine fun whenever we darn well please. And many of the items on their list are well worth doing at any time of year. For example, open a sparkling wine at home, just because you can. So many people save Champagne and other spar-kling wines for a special occasion, but you can make any dinner special by popping the cork on a bottle of fizzy. There are dozens of reasonably priced sparkling wines on the shelves, many are Champagnes and others are made by the Champagne method. My favorite, mentioned in this space before, is Gruet, which comes from New Mexico, of all places. Their deliciously dry Brut is about $18, and worth every nickel. Try a wine from a different country. Of course, we tend to stick to wine types and producers weve sampled and liked, but what about expanding your horizons a little? The red table wines from Portugal have become sensational values. The Portuguese have done a terrific job using the grapes tradition-ally vinified as Port (Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz, etc.) to make wines like the Quinta das Carvalhas Touriga Nacional Douro 2013, with plum, cocoa, spice and currant flavors all in the bottle for around $20. Shop at a wine store. Although Ive written about buying wine in so-called big boxŽ stores, there are many advan-tages to patronizing smaller shops and being helped by a merchant whos car-ing, knowledgeable, and really under-stands wine. If you try a new wine and cant find it anywhere, an independent store can special order it for you. They hold tastings and other events where you can sample different wines and expand your horizons. They can put you on preferred customer lists and give you access to wines that may not be gener-ally available. Building a relationship with a local wine retailer in your area is always a good idea. Splurge, for once. People who can afford to drink a $60-$100 bottle of wine with dinner every night dont live at our house. But once in a while „ not on a birthday or anniversary „ go ahead and spend the money. Restaurant wine lists are often arranged by price, so start at the bottom where the reserveŽ wines are, and just do it ƒeven if its once a year. Speaking of big wines, here are some suggestions in several price ranges. Justin Isosceles 2012 ($60) „ This iconic wine from Paso Robles is a clas-sic Bordeaux blend. Dark ruby garnet in the glass, aromas of plum, smoke, and bright fruit. The flavors are baking spice, cassis, vanilla, and black cherry. Needs time. WW 92-93. Damilano LecinquevigneŽ Barolo 2012 ($50) „ It means five vinesŽ in Italian, and gives up Old World aro-mas of tobacco, leather and roses. The earthy flavors persist through a long finish. WW 93. Avant Red Blend 2013 ($17) „ A relatively new label from Kendall-Jack-son, its a very pleasing blend of six or seven red grapes. Blackberry and cherry on the nose, and the six months of oak aging adds a nice cedar note to the pre-dominant cherry and raspberry flavors. WW 90.Ask the Wine WhispererQ. … If a wine label says Cabernet Sauvignon,Ž is the wine in the bot-tle pure Cabernet, or are other grapes blended in? „ Dominick B., Bonita SpringsA Depending on the laws of the particular state or region, the bottle must contain between 75 percent and 85 percent of the named varietal. So if the label says Cabernet Sauvignon,Ž there can be up to 25 percent of other grapes blended in, and they dont have to be disclosed. Most times, blending improves a wine, adding color, structure or aroma. Places like France, Italy and Spain dont list the name of the grape at all „ just the name of the region its from. For example, in the Southern Rhone, a red wine might consist of a blend of 10 to 13 different grapes, and the label will not let you know. „ Jerry Greenfield, The Wine Whisperer, is creative director of Greenfield Advertising Group.

Their popular Crazy Cuban takeout spot in a small plaza along U.S. Highway 1 has morphed into One Way Caf It reopened Aug. 23. After 15 years strong as a lunch spot focused on sandwiches and housemade soups, its owner Mr. Brogna said it was time to update. We wanted to broaden our audience,Ž he said. A lot of people would see the sign and think we served Cuban food, and maybe pass right by. Im not even Cuban „ Im Italian,Ž he said, laughing. The Cuban sandwiches and caf con leche they served will remain on the menu. But since the owners heart sur-gery four years ago, and a new apprecia-tion for healthful lifestyles, hes updated the menu with a number of health-conscious foods. Avocado toast at breakfast, a BLT, grilled chicken quesadillas and a black-ened salmon salad with walnuts, apples and feta are among the dishes that the original chef, Rodrigo Corona has helped develop. Rice bowls and fish tacos are coming soon; the menu is still being created and right now, posted to a chalkboard. We had to reopen, wed been closed long enough,Ž said Mrs. Brogna. We dont have our menus yet; the sign, the menus „ all are on the way. We havent even hung the light fixtures, either „ theyre sitting here behind the counter.Ž Its been crazy. I had so many people calling to ask when wed reopen,Ž Mr. Brogna said. My daughter came down from New York and we gutted the place. She designed all the walls and counters, the whole interior. Everythings new. We built it all ourselves.Ž The modern design includes white wood plank paneling on the walls, and a slatted wood fixed shade that cov-ers the front window. The kitchen was expanded to add a new grill and oven, and the soda reach-in was moved out of the dining room to make more room for tables and the counter seating. Diners can order at the counter and have a seat. Booths, counter, and tables seat 28, with six outdoor seats on the sidewalk to come. Theyre for the smokers,Ž said Mrs. Brogna. But customers can expect the same fresh foods at breakfast and lunch, she said. Everything is still homemade „ even our balsamic vinaigrette. And of course our soups.Ž The housemade soups are a big draw among customers who missed the caf while it was closed for the month-long renovation. And the name? My daughter picked it out,Ž Mr. Brogna said. The Crazy Cuban moniker came with the place they bought originally, so they left it „ for 15 years. One Way, its like the highway sign,Ž Mrs. Brogna said. You see a one-way sign, and youll think: Lets go to One Way Caf!Ž Open for breakfast and lunch, One Way Caf is at 11985 U.S. Highway 1, North Palm Beach. 625-3708.Burger Bar gets new chef Palm Beach Gardens Burger Bar has a new chef, and a new, very experi-enced consultant. Chef Nunzio Billante comes to Burger Bar most recently from the chain La Brasa Grill and Rotisserie but has notable stints with the Big Time Restaurant Group where he devel-oped the recipes for Roccos Tacos and EPCOT s iconic Mexican restaurant, Hacienda de San Angel among others. Helping broaden the menu and define the concept by identifying the customers is Dennis Max longtime South Florida restaurant guru with doz-ens of success stories with both restau-rants and chefs. Mr. Billante has expanded the menu with a new section titled Beyond Burg-ers. Dishes for those nonmeat eaters include pan roasted salmon with an herb potato cake; local mahi with fried green tomatoes and chili mango relish, and chicken paillard, a simple chicken breast with grilled zucchini and red pepper caper b utter, and an ahi tuna with a sesame lo mein salad. Other of the chef creations are Cincinnati chili „ spaghetti with chili; and prime beef meatloaf with giant onion rings and a mushroom BBQ jus. Through his publicist, general manager Kevin Taggart said guest feedback is already a positive buzz around the new creations. Mr. Max said there are other Burger Bars being considered. Im consulting right now, helping them refine their concept, and helping them to ID new locations. Were looking at South Flori-da: Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, Miami Beach.Ž Burger Bar is in the Donald Ross Village plaza, 4650 Donald Ross Road, Palm Beach Gardens; open daily for lunch and dinner. 630-4545.In briefThe Grilled Cheese Gallery in West Palm Beachs Northwood Village has moved east a few doors to a bigger location.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 1-7, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15The Dish: Grilled Cauliflower Steak The Place: C.W.S. Bar & Kitchen, 522 Lucerne Ave., downtown Lake Worth; 318-5637 or The Price: $16 The Details: I wasnt sure what to expect when I saw the cauliflower on the menu at C.W.S. It certainly seems to be a popular ingredient there „ cauliflower mashed potatoes is one of the sides. And it made an impressive vegetarian main course. Its essentially a thick slice of cauliflower thats been grilled, then topped with a mix of greens and dressed with vincotto, a sweet, potent balsamic vin-egar. Confit tomatoes add dimension, as does the n utty quinoa served on the side. The cauliflower had a wonderfully clean taste, though it didnt really blend with any of the other ingredients. It was heated through, but was al dente in texture, which made for tough eating. Still, it was a satisfying dish, and its nice to see restaurants willing to step up to the plate with bold vegetarian main courses. Q „ Sc ott Simmons If you didn t know better, you could easily drive right on by Kersmon Carib-bean Restaurant. The 20-seat eatery is tucked into a little strip mall on the cor-ner of Melaleuca and Jog in Greenacres. But Kersmons reputation for jerk and curry chicken, oxtail stew, rice and beans and fried plantains is widely known, thanks to word-of-mouth endorsements, fans of James Patterson books and reviews on Yelp. Yelps online dining guide routinely ranks Kersmon as the No. 1 restaurant in Palm Beach County and one of the Top 100 Places to Eat in the U.S. So people are finding the place. Lots and lots of people. Some Miami Dolphins have been seen eating at Kersmon. And Mr. Pat-terson became such a fan of Kersmon he wrote about the restaurants chef/owner, Althea Drummond, in one of his books: Althea returned with a tray. Fried plantains. Rice and black beans. Oxtail stew. And a whole steamed and spiced grouperƒ We dug in. The oxtail was simply incredible. So was the grouper. So were the second and third Red Stripes.Ž „ Alex Cross in Cross Justice.Ž Ms. Drummond is a fan of Mr. Pattersons, as well. They are a mutual admira-tion society. He loves her cooking. He is very kind. Maybe he can help me get a cookbook published someday.Ž Writing a cookbook is one of her goals, she said. For the time being, however, Ms. Drummond has her hands full cooking and greeting guests. Once she learns their names, she doesnt forget them. Guests are like family to her, she said. Shes like your Jamaican grandmother, if you had one „ and I dont,Ž said Stephanie Martin, a regular customer. Kersmon is my favorite restaurant in the county,Ž Ms. Martin said, and I eat at a lot of good restaurants.Ž Born in Jamaica, Ms. Drummond, the oldest of three girls, learned to cook as a child. Her grandmother taught her. We lived in a rural area and we used the resources we had,Ž she said. There werent so many prepared foods. No fast-food restaurants.Ž The family had chickens, a cow, a goat and crops „ Spanish guava, Jamaican apples, carambola, guava, mangoes and sugarplums. Food and cooking is part of the culture,Ž she said. Ms. Drummond had a res-taurant and catering business in Kings-ton before moving to Florida in 2002. Kersmon (the moniker came from com-bining parts of the names of two of her nieces) opened in 2007, and Ms. Drum-mond quickly made it her own, with col-orful furnishings and reggae music play-ing not too loudly in the background. I painted every chair myself,Ž she said. And theres a rainbow of color on the chairs. The walls are colored green and orange and purple with paints she picked up at Lowes in the oopsŽ sec-tion „ colors returned by customers. Ms. Drummond could buy them at dras-tically reduced prices. Wall paintings, mirrors and other decorations were col-lected at garage sales and flea markets. Then she added her own artistic touches to most of them. I like to use my hands a lot, not just for cooking,Ž she said. On the island you never paid for certain things,Ž she said. So you become resourceful.Ž In her spare time, Ms. Drummond enjoys gardening. She enjoyed watching the Olympics, especially track and field. I got a track scholarship to a top high school in Jamaica,Ž she said. Her special-ties: long jump and triple jump. But these days, its Kersmon that keeps her running. And shes savoring every minute of it. Althea DrummondAge: 52 Original Hometown: Negril, Jamaica Restaurant: Kersmon Caribbean Restaurant, 4622 S.

The cooks at Daves do not shy away from heat in their conch chowder, and the sandwiches and entrees „ is there anything more heartwarming than the sizzle of a fresh fajita platter? „ are hearty and flavorful, from the 6.9-Mile Buffalo-style chicken sandwiches to the fish dishes.

It publishes monthly. Call 561.904.6470 or visit us on the web at Yes, South Florida is home to Art Deco. We know it at a glance, in fact, thanks to streamlined 1920s and 1930s buildings across the Palm Beaches and, of course, the southern core of Miami Beach. Sometimes the style blends with other design ideas, and it gets incorpo-rated into contemporary architecture. Case in point: Sofitel New York, the work of celebrated French designer Pierre-Yves Rochon and architect Bren-nan Beer Gorman. When the 30-story Midtown Manhattan hotel debuted, it was honored with the Emporis Sky-scraper Award for best new skyscraper for design and functionality. The lure of the property goes beyond a good nights sleep. The Sofitel design/build team had a little help from a bygone era. The namesake of Sofitels Gaby Brasserie Franaise was a Parisian model who just 18 when she arrived in Man-hattan. As the muse of couturier Paul Poiret, a fashion icon who designed the flapper dress, she worked as a lingerie model for Henri Bendel and appeared in Ziegfelds RipplesŽ and silent films. In the portrait that surveys the space, Gabys presence still mesmerizes. Sofitels culinary program is helmed by French-born Executive Chef Sylvain Harribey, winner of Food Networks Chopped.Ž He is the architect of the restaurants classic brasserie menu, but with a twist: think variety Hudson Val-ley foie gras scented with Cognac, pan-seared scallops with lemon poppy seeds and his signature French chocolate chip bread pudding with salted caramel ice cream. Massive bronze doors lead to the mahogany bar. Sofitel architects designed the dining room for people watching, lining the 45th Street faade with multiple glass doors, just as you might expect at a French brasserie. Its a dark, elegant retreat, courtesy of the green marble-topped mahogany bar, stained glass and zebra-print banquettes and black marble flooring. Those traveling to Manhattan who prefer a touch of Paris will find it at Sofitel, where 1920s supermodels and coq au vin blanc still go hand in hand.

Deja Vu Estate Liquidators N o -59192 Making quick work of multifaceted makeovers BY KELLY MERRITTkmerritt@” oridaweekly.comWhen it comes to makeovers, enthusiasm and work ethic go hand in hand. And in the case of Interior Designer Adelene Keeler Smith, a hearty help-ing of design love rounds out the magic trio that yields stunning results. This designing woman has a keen eye for transforming spaces great and small. Delicious updateA bachelor’s eat-in kitchen takes in lakefront viewsMrs. Smiths bachelor client purchased his home specifically for its views of the adjacent lake. And since so much of a home is centered on the kitchen, she set about marrying those vistas with a tasty design solution. It was a casual dining space, plus major construction wasnt an option „ the existing white tile floors, ceiling fan and windows were all in pristine con-dition, so simplicity became the focus of the project,Ž said Mrs. Smith, not-ing the challenge of changing existing metal micro-mini blinds that hindered the lake view. We wanted to extend warmth and openness into that pan-orama so we replaced them with white wood venetian blinds and next trans-formed a dead corner using a whimsical floor screen.Ž Using modern classic furnishings like the Eero Saarinen tulip table, Mrs. Smith banished what she called cum-bersome, heavy side chairs and installed light, etherealŽ pull-up chairs to match the wood tabletop for practicality. We created a lounge seating area so he could enjoy his morning fruit smoothie and newspaper and finally tied it all together using a Brazilian cowhide and other warm brown hues,Ž she said. Bathing beauty A high-maintenance bathroom falls in lineThe pre-construction task of transforming a dated condo bathroom required gutting it down to the metal studs and concrete slab. This was a project where we were working with new electrical, plumb-ing, drywall „ everything possible that could be done „ it was an exclusive his bathroom for an older male client so I wanted it to very cool with a modern floating vanity, but with things like pull-out drawer storage and built-in lighting that could double as a nightlight,Ž she said of the extras that were custom installed above the standard 36-inch height to accommodate the owners 6-foot, 2-inch frame. The large shaving mirror has a deep medicine chest with anti-fog and television components, flanked by twin cylinder pendants along with additional shower stall and general lighting.Ž No more dank and dark: The new seamless shower panel and door opened the shower space and the corner bub-ble tile details were embedded into an elongated wavy porcelain tiled field. Pendants, tiles and the high-rise toilet combined with strategically placed ele-ments added visual height, too. This was all about functional beauty with an added personal touch of fine art,Ž said Mrs. Smith of the vintage cor-porate logo that represented the owners career as a Mobil Oil executive.

“I love what I do and my favorite part of the job is working with the clients, because I love interacting with people and helping them create their home.” — Scott Robertsonmany styles keeps things interesting, but his favorite part of design work is people. I love what I do and my favorite part of the job is working with the clients, because I love interacting with people and helping them create their home,Ž he said. It is a very rewarding job and I frequently joke that I cant believe I get paid for doing this.Ž One of the reasons Mr. Robertsons clients clamor for his design acumen is not just to buy things, but because he is all too happy to incorporate a clients existing collection into a design and to work around special pieces that mean something. In many ways its about being able to curate their objects, possessions in their home, things they love and have col-lected put it together in a new context that honors them and the object and this creates an interesting space,Ž he said. Items that are precious to homeown-ers tell the story of who they are and what they have done and accomplished through their lives.Ž Mr. Robertson is quick to point out that a comfortable home is not just about acquiring possessions, but balanc-ing what to keep and what to discard. Everyone talks about green design these days „ I tell clients when we begin working together, dont throw that away just yet „ it doesnt get any greener than that,Ž he said. Theyll often say they love this chair or that painting and then were off and run-ning.Ž In one of his favorite recent projects, Mr. Robertson designed a living room for a couple about to become empty nesters. With kids headed off to college, Mr. Robertson focused the furniture plan inward. In the case of another liv-ing room, he recycled his clients collec-tion of vintage rattan and pine pieces, giving them a fresh look with a new color palette and a refinished floor. For a sitting area in the master bedroom of a Montreal apartment, I applied a golden color scheme to warm up the winter days the homeowners dont spend in Florida,Ž he said. For many homeowners, art is a major component. While Mr. Robertson has transitioned from painting to designing, his background never fails to be helpful to his clients, in particular in the trompe loeil department. That French term means to fool the eye „ faux painting is one aspect of it, he says, while decorative painting on a whole encompasses stenciled ceilings to paint-ed floors to wall finishes to murals to gilding, the range of what a homeowner might choose is dizzying. In a town where what you put on your walls can outshine your couture, Mr. Robertsons understanding of place-ment keeps him in high demand. It also fuels courage and color in design, like the bedroom he designed for the Red Cross Designer show house earlier this year. Helping clients manage beloved furnishings and new acquisitions is only part of the equation. In much the same way that art evokes a feeling, Mr. Robertson understands how a room or set of rooms can have that same power. In the master bedroom and sitting room combo he recently designed, he had a purpose in mind. We selected a low-key color palette and what that did was set a restful mood,Ž he said. In another project, a large architectural drawing from Radio City and a painted floor gave a sitting area a bold impact in a cool quiet color scheme.Ž In another home, an antique Bessarabian carpet set the style for the space, which anchored the clients collection of antiques for a relaxed, but traditional room. If we have to throw everything out and start new we can do that „ because its about creating their home, whether that means outfitting the home with all new items or looking for antiques and vintage items that help us tell that homes story,Ž he said. Rooms are for living.Ž Q Scott Robertson Interiors Inc.

10 LUXE LIVING SEPTEMBER 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLYDESIGN Q&ASMARTYPLANTS cultivates a Zen approach to plants M ost folks grew up with the neigh-borhood garden center. Remember those? Local folks sold flora guaranteed to bloom where it was planted. Season ended for many of those local garden centers in the 80s and 90s, as bigbox retailers came to the fore, often offering plants to the public at prices less than what those local retailers were paying whole-sale.But big-box retailers arent for every-one, and thats where SmartyPlants comes in.The Lake Worth store takes a Zen approach to garden centers, courtesy of owners Paul Harding and Marta Edwards. New Age music plays in the back-ground as wind chimes catch the breeze. Water splashes in the fountains as customers stroll among the plants. You can design your own space, or you can call on SmartyPlants to do it „ the firm designs and maintains landscapes across South Florida. Mr. Harding and Ms. Edwards took a break to share tips. What tips would you offer customers to begin the process of decorating with plants? Landscaping is truly decorating with plants and it is like anything else „ there is a learning curve if this is something new to you. It is important to select a land-scape theme that is congruent with the style of the house to be landscaped. Drive around to get ideas or the feel you want and determine how much maintenance you are willing to undertake. Explore Floridas native plants as alternatives and consider creating a garden that brings butter flies and birds to your yard. What are some questions clients should ask before spending a lot of money on plants? The old adage right plant, right placeŽ is so important. Are the plants you like appropriate for the exposure and con-ditions throughout the day? Are those plants susceptible to pests? Also, when and how to properly prune and fertilize is important to know and implement so your plants will perform and meet long-term expectations. Is there a favorite trend in tropical plants right now? Tropical plants have always been popular and will continue to be popular espe-cially for people who live here season-ally. They want lush colorful gardens, and who can blame them? For Floridians, there is a definite increase in desire to create butte rfly gardens. Numerous people come in asking for butterfly host and nectar plants which is wonderful. We see a less steep trend but a noticeable one to create gardens that incorporate South Florida native plants in the landscape „ they require less care in the long run than their tropical counterparts. And finally, a markedly upward trend can be observed in decorating with succulents. This can be a challenge in South Florida during wet summers, but it can be done. Succulents perform especially well during hot dry summers like we have been experiencing. Which trends are you glad to see go away? Sod! We are seeing more and more people give up on sod after replacing patches of their grass or replacing the entire yard multiple times. People say, I want to sod the yard because I want low maintenanceƒŽ but this is inaccurate. Sod and low maintenance in the same sentence is an oxymoron. Sod requires regular water, regular fertilizer, herbicide and pesticide applications plus weekly mowing, which is a lot more than many shrubs or groundcovers need. Also, wed like to say goodbye to the concept of creating a monoculture hedge, which entails using one plant along the entire length for screening or decorating purposes. Trimming is required less often on a non-monoculture hedge and plants may be allowed to grow in their natural shape and size. Q SmartyPlants 1515 N.
