StMarysMC.com We heal for Terry. Terry T ipple … Str oke Survivor 2015Ali R. Malek, MDMedical Director, SMMC Comprehensive Stroke Center8 Years COMMENTARYBread and raisesWe cant pinpoint the moment in time when the wage gap experienced by women in the workforce first became a policy issue. It is just one of multiple barriers women face in overcoming gender inequality. But we do know the root of its cause: occupational segregation of women in the workforce. It is the funda-mental reason the wage gap exists and persists for women workers. The prac-tice survives, even though it is economi-cally inefficient; and it deprives the labor force of women fully capable of perform-ing in occupations where they are grossly under-represented. The lesser value associated with the worth of womens work is a downstream derivative of questioning whether women should participate in the workforce at all. The question is now and has long been a moot issue. Today, about 66 million women are employed in the U.S., nearly three-fourths of them in fulltime jobs. Their numbers nearly equal those of men in the workforce. There is no going back. Women are a critical part of the Ameri-can economy. When women first entered the labor market, only jobs thought suitableŽ were available. Little was left over of genuine utility to their economic advancement. Women wore these constraints like a whale bone corset. Womens social, religious and cultural oppression consigned them to inferiority. To breathe freely and without contrivance was not in Gods design Thus men went through one door for employment and women through anoth-er, assuming women were welcome to enter. The subtraction was disastrous, denying women opportunity in a majority of occupations recruiting large numbers of workers. It reduced their employment prospects to almost nil, and the sorry rate of womens pay was calculated accord-ingly. The dubious math required little explanation. The one oft given was that women simply did not have the stamina, strength, temperament, intellectual capacity and/or qualifications to perform the jobs men did. The argument was a legacy from the historical era when men were men and women were their subordinates. This belief still works for an amazing number of people. The concept of male superiority over women has never gone completely out of style. Today, you might hear this same truthinessŽ to oppose women becoming steel-workers, software engineers or CEOs of major corporations. It has a built-in quaint-ness to it, conjuring up the era when women as lawmakers, doctors, lawyers, professors, accountants, business owners, or even as clerks or secretaries inhab-ited the same biased territory. Back then, people who thought otherwise were chal-lenged and ridiculed, too. Occupational segregation of women in the workforce remains one of the most salient features of the U.S. Labor market. Studies indicate women made substantial progress in the 70s and 80s integrating previously majority-male occupations. But the Institute for Womens Policy Research says progress has completely stalled since the mid-90s. The ladies of 150 years ago would be terribly disappointed by this news. Even back then, their antennae were up about the wage gap characterizing womens work. They knew women were being short changed. The issue found traction during Abraham Lincolns presidency. All the gifted young menŽ were off to war, leaving a paucity of available work-ers to administrate the war effort. In 1861, the Hon. Salmon P. Chase, Lincolns sec-retary of the treasury, was the first to recruit women as government clerks in the nations capital, a decision he alluded to as one of the most important acts of his life.Ž The experimentŽ proved a great suc-cess. Nonetheless, women were only paid at the rate of $50 a month „ one-half the lowest price paid to any male clerk.Ž The wage disparity caught Congress notice. It finally acted in 1866 to increase the womens salary to $900 a year. The gesture was less than half a loaf. The men doing the same work were compensated across four different pay grades, earn-ing respectively $1,000, $1,400, $1,600, and $1,800 a year. Mrs. Fitzgerald, the most senior and qualified expert among those perform-ing the work, challenged her inequitable rate of pay. To resolve the issue, she was required to take an examination testing her expertise. She was ambushed with questions foreign to her profession.Ž Fail-ing to answer correctly, she was denied an increase in pay. Mrs. Fitzgerald was Lilly Ledbetter before there was a Lilly Ledbet-ter. Ms. Ledbetter is the Alabama production worker who filed an equal-pay lawsuit in 1998 upon discovering her employer had, for years, paid her less than her male counterparts. She lost her case. In 2007, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the statute of limitations on filing her claim had expired. The 5-4 decision hinged on determination of the date when the clock started ticking on the deadline for Ms. Ledbetter to file her claim. The court determined it was the date her employer decided to discriminate, not on the date of her last paycheck. Because Ms. Ledbetters employer didnt alert her as to the date of his decision to do her wrong, she went home empty-handed. It was another Mrs. Fitzgerald moment. But we all know who was right.

Fay was one of the great political reporters of my generation. I got to know her when we both worked at the St. Petersburg Times (now the Tampa Bay Times). In 1980, Fay, who had joined the Times in 1977, had risen to become the papers political editor. I had come to the Times in late 1978 as a reporter and spent the better part of 1980 as one of the writers assigned to cover the presi-dential contest between Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter. About two weeks before Election Day, I had returned to St. Petersburg after an extended stint on the road with Reagan. Fay and I went out for a long lunch. I was bone tired and disillusioned, and in a moment of fatigue-induced candor admitted to Fay that, after seeing Reagan and Carter close up, I had made a deci-sion: I could not vote for either man. Reagan, in my estimation, was shallow, distracted and overly scripted. The incumbent Carter, I continued, seemed overmatched for the job and gratingly pious. I went on to say that while vot-ing is indeed a sacred duty, I felt I had done my part for democracy by giving readers a pretty good idea of the dismal choice that faced them. Fay, a contrarian of the highest order, did not seem particularly shocked or upset by anything I said, adding that while she would vote, she shared my reservations concerning the candidates. Not long after this lunch, Fay wrote a column and in that piece let drop that an unnamed colleague who covered politics intended to withhold his vote. The reaction to this seemingly innocuous piece of information was unexpect-edly ferocious. Readers swamped Fay with letters denouncing the unnamed journalistic apostate who was abdicat-ing his civic responsibility. The top editors at the Times were also in high dudgeon. At least one column was writ-ten condemning any Times reporter or editor who did not exercise his or her franchise. Fay was pressed by the papers pooh-bahs to reveal the identity of her nonvoting coworker. In typical Fay Joyce fashion, she told them no way, although suspicion already had fallen heavily on yours truly. Jesus,Ž Fay told me later after the brouhaha had quieted a bit, where is it written in stone that you have to vote for someone you find distasteful or unqualified?Ž Thirty-six years after this teapot tempest, the thought of not voting in a presidential election seems not quite so heretical „ Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have seen to that.Large numbers of Americans will either hold their noses and vote or stay away from the polling place altogether. I cannot recall a time when I have heard so many people say they are manifestly unenthusi-astic about the choices for president.I can only imagine what Fay would make of the presidential election of 2016. From St. Petersburg, she went on to Harvard University as a Nieman Fel-low and finally to The New York Times, where she quickly became one of the top national political cor-respondents.Fay was a superb stylist who was unsparing in her assessments, and she had a fine eye for the telling detail that politicians and candi-dates so often despise. She once riled teetotaler Jimmy Carter to no end when she reported that his mother „ the redoubtable Miss LillianŽ „ drank bourbon disguised as iced tea at a public luncheon. Carters people pushed back, insisting that it was indeed tea in Miss Lillians glass. But, as was pointed out later, Fay had spent considerable time covering the Georgia Legislature while on the staff of The Atlanta Constitution and thus was eminently capable of distinguishing tea from bourbon. Fay adhered to the dictum that the only way a reporter should look at a politician is down. Brother, she would have had a field day writing about Trump and Clin-ton. But that was not to be. She died tragi-cally and suddenly in 1985 at the age of 36.The news media has not performed well during this presidential campaign „ the reasons being too numerous to list in this limited space. Had she lived to expe-rience this sorry spectacle, Fay surely would be critiquing her fellow journal-ists as rigorously as the candidates. I have little doubt that were she living, Fay would vote in this election. And Im certain I know who her favored can-didate would be. Am I voting in 2016? I doubt that many people actually care and its really nobodys business, but lets just say that my forthrightness way back in 1980 taught me a lesson. Im keeping my mouth shut this time around. Im comforted by the thought that Fay Joyce would understand. Q „ Roger Williams column will return next week.The Clinton diagnosisWith the Clintons, mistrust always pays.A couple of weeks ago, Hillary was yukking it up with Jimmy Kimmel over the absurdity of rumors that she was hiding something about her health. Look, she can open a pickle jar! That feels so long ago now that her campaign has admitted that she was indeed hiding something about her health „ a pneumonia diagnosis.Some of the diagnoses from afar of Hillarys purported illnesses have been elaborate fantasies, and she might have really been fit as a fiddle when she opened the famous pickle jar. But through her secretive handling of her pneumonia, she has, once again, shown how it never pays to trust a Clinton. Bill and Hillary have a way of treating the credibility of their allies as a dispos-able commodity, in this case including the credibility of a protective media. The press had worked itself into a lather about the illegitimacy of inquiries into Hillarys health. They were repaid by Clinton leaving reporters behind without notice at the Sept. 11 memorial; nearly collapsing when she was out of their view (the incident was captured on video by a bystander); giving them a wave and a misleading feeling greatŽ outside of Chelsea Clintons apartment, where she had gone to recover; and leav-ing them behind yet again to go to her home in Chappaqua and see a doctor. Her campaign initially said Hillary overheat edŽ (on a gorgeous and mild morning in New York City). Can happen to anyone, right? Well, yes „ and espe-cially someone walking around with a case of pneumonia. It is a cliche in the press to say that Hillary hurts herself by not being more transparent. But cover-ups have their advantages. If things had bounced dif-ferently, Bill Clinton might have been able to get away with denying his affair with Monica Lewinsky; we might never have learned of Hillarys private serv-er; and Hillarys pneumonia diagnosis might have been kept under wraps, too. Surely, the public had a right to know. Millions of people get pneumonia every year, and often it is easily treatable, yet the condition is serious enough that Hillarys doctor told her to scale back her campaign schedule. The public interest in disclosure took a back seat to Hillarys interest in not giving any more fodder to critics questioning her vigor.Clinton has now been caught being dishonest about an area where public skepti-cism is most justified. Politicians lying about or concealing health problems is a common feature of every political system the world over, democratic or totalitarian. Hillary would do well to adopt an unchar-acteristic policy of complete transparency about her health records and perform the rest of the way without a disruption more serious than a stray sneeze.Even if she does, the handling of her pneumonia is a preview of how a second Clinton White House would operate. If shes elected president, inevitably, some outlandish allegation will arise. The Clintons and their defenders will dismiss it as a hateful fantasy, before „ when all other options are exhausted „ admitting its actually true. This is the Clinton pattern over a couple of decades of stoking, and validating, their critics distrust.

PET TALESBetween Heaven and EarthLiving with an old dog is bittersweet BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickIn the last couple of years of my dog Bellas life, I usually found myself out-doors with her in the wee hours of the morning. The medications she took for her heart condition caused her to have to urinate frequently, and since I am a light sleeper, it fell to me to take her out for her late-night perambulations. It was peaceful. Id look at stars I didnt usually see or listen to the geese honking in the distance. One night we saw a large, white possum walking on top of the wall that separates our condo complex from the shopping center next door. In fall, wed listen to the Santa Ana winds blow. We saw the moon in all her phases. Crickets chirped. In Oklahoma, visiting my parents, we heard owls hoot-ing in the tree above us. Theres a twilight time in pets lives. Theyre not quite ready to go yet, and were definitely not ready for them to go. Their treacherous bodies have betrayed them, and they need more help getting around. Maybe they cant make it up and down the stairs anymore and must be carried. We did that with our greyhound, Savanna, after she lost a leg to bone cancer. Or, like Bella, they might need access to the outdoors at odd hours. Not every infirm animal has access to a pet door and a yard or is able to use them on her own. At times, Bella would lose her appetite and need to be hand-fed for a few days. Currently, my dogs are middle-aged, or not yet at the stage where they need midnight ministrations. But I have friends who are at this point with their senior dogs. Its hard. I remember. Never getting a full nights sleep. Always keeping one ear open for the sounds that signal shes getting up and needs to go out. You groan, but you dont hesitate to jump out of bed, throw on a robe and carry her downstairs. Because the alternative is cleaning up a pool of pee in the dark so you dont wake your spouse. I tried to get Bella to use pee pads, but that was a shocking concept to a lady who prided herself on her housetraining. What saved us were diapers. We didnt keep one on her all the time, but she wore one at night. Sometimes, not always, it allowed me to sleep the night through. I say sometimes,Ž because if Bella had to potty in the middle of the night, she didnt always like doing it in the diaper. I would be awakened by her attempts to rip it off, so I would get up and take her out. But for the most part, wearing a diaper seemed to encourage her to hold itŽ for longer periods. Caring for an old or sick animal is stressful and time-consuming. Feelings of love clash with exhaustion and frustration. You feel guilty about feeling frustrated or wishing you could sleep more, because you know that being able to sleep through the night could mean only one thing: Your pet is gone. And thats not what you want. Those feelings are normal. They dont mean you dont love your pet or that you want her to die. They are a natural out-growth of the stress of being a caregiver. The good news is that our pets love us no matter what. They forgive us for the mistakes we make as we shepherd them through their final years or months. All we can do is our best „ and cherish the time we have remaining with them.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYto face, mano a mano, phony smile to phony smile, sound bite to sound bite, with nothing separating them but poor, defenseless Lester Holt, the NBC News anchor who will serve as moderator, referee and designated punching bag. If he does what he should do „ and the betting is that he does „ Holt, a consummate professional, will anger Republicans and Democrats alike. Talk about a thankless job. Is America ready for its rendezvous with debate destiny? You bet we are. Admit it. You cant wait. The confronta-tion between the two most disliked and distrusted presidential candidates ever is the political equivalent of Whos Afraid of Virginia Woolf?Ž „ with Don-ald and Hillary assuming the roles of George and Martha in what promises to be a nasty, unsparing and viciously entertaining evening. This is reality television howling on a cosmic scale. The viewership will likely be record setting, if the ratings of the presidential primary debates are any guide. In August, the first Republican debate was seen by 24 million viewers, making it the highest-rated nonsports event in cable television history, according to The New York Times. Presidential debates ... draw enormous ratings ... far greater than the 21 million average for Sunday Night Foot-ball games, the highest rated regular programming in television,Ž The Times reported. The first presidential debate in the 2012 election drew around 70 million viewers.Ž Look for this debate to blow past that 70 million number. Way past. This is one of those rare moments in the political history of our republic that transcends party affiliation, civic awareness and, perhaps, even func-tional literacy. Those who dont know a Republican from a rutabaga or a Demo-crat from a doughnut will tune in. The tempestuous Trump might describe the happening as huuugeŽ but that des-ignation barely scratches the surface. This is biblical, baby. With apologies to the Book of Isaiah, Debate Night 2016 will be the time when fans of Kim Kardashian lie down with devotees of Charlie Rose. We have not seen the like of this before, and we may never see it again. QQQ MANY AMERICANS WRONGLY ASSUME THAT general election presidential debates are a longstanding tradition. They are not. The first took place on Sept. 26, 1960 (56 years to the day before the initial Trump-Clinton debate) between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon. Much of this misunderstanding can be laid to the seven debates in 1858 between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas. These debates involved a race for the U.S. Senate, not the presiden-cy, although two years later both men were candidates for the nations highest office. To this day, many of us mistak-enly think the Lincoln-Douglas debates were for the White House. We have a notion that American political figures were always debating each other,Ž Fergus Bordewich, writer, historian and author of Americas Great Debate,Ž said in a telephone interview. Actually, presidential candidates were reclusive deep into the 19th century. Mostly, candidates back then relied on surrogates to speak on their behalf.Ž The Lincoln-Douglas debates gained renown for several reasons. The prin-cipal issue debated „ slavery „ was epic. Both Lincoln and Douglas were accomplished orators, and technology came into play for the first time, ensur-ing that the debates received widespread attention. In 1858, innovation was turning what would otherwise have been a local con-test into one followed from Mississippi to Maine,Ž Bordewich wrote in an article that appeared in Smithsonian Magazine. Stenographers trained in shorthand recorded the candidates words. Halfway through each debate, runners were handed the stenographers notes; they raced for the next train to Chicago, converting shorthand into text during the journey and producing a transcript ready to be typeset and telegraphed to the rest of the country as soon as it arrived.Ž Lincoln-Douglas was notable for the elevated level of oratory employed „ a skill in short supply these days. In that sense, the debates were emblematic of the times. The great political men of (that era) were indeed great debaters and orators,Ž said Bordewich. Their debates read like literature.Ž But lest anyone swoon excessively over the good old days of political discourse, Bordewich said, there was a darker side to the Lincoln-Douglas encounters. What is less well-known, however, is that those debates were also character-ized by substantial amounts of pander-ing, baseless accusation, outright racism and what we now call spin,Ž he wrote in his Smithsonian piece. Technology, in the form of television, proved to be influential in the 1960 presidential debates „ especially the first one. The camera was famously kind to the youthful Kennedy, who appeared tanned, measured, calm and presiden-tial. Nixon „ who was ill from a leg infection and poorly prepared on top of that „ came across on screen as a petty thief being grilled by cops under a hot light in a windowless room down PREVIOUS PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES GRAPPLEFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOSThe second of the four Kennedy and Nixon debates took place at WRC-TV in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 7, 1960.Above: President Carter and former Gov.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2016 NEWS A9at the station house. He was pale (hav-ing refused makeup), shifty-eyed, soaked in perspiration and defensive. Tellingly, later polls revealed that those who did not actually see the debate but listened to it on radio thought Nixon got the bet-ter of his Democratic opponent. Despite the enormous impact of the Kennedy-Nixon debates, there would not be another presidential debate until 1976. Lyndon Johnson chose not to engage Barry Goldwater in 1964. Nixon „ still reeling from the debacle of 1960 „ disdained debates in 1968 and 1972. In 1976, the debates began anew. President Gerald Ford faced Democratic challenger Jimmy Carter. Yet again, the debate would prove to be a significant factor in the subsequent election. In response to a routine question, Ford gave this jaw-dropping response: There is no Soviet domination of East-ern Europe, and there never will be under a Ford administration.Ž Fords inexplicable gaffe, coupled with his controversial pardon of Richard Nixon, went a long way toward handing the White House to Carter, who four years later would run into troubles of his own during a debate with Ronald Reagan. Given the deification that has attended Reagan in the intervening years, the memory of the substantial challenges he faced in his race against President Carter in 1980 has faded. During the campaign, the 69-year-old former Cali-fornia governor was portrayed as an aged amiable dunceŽ who held radically conservative beliefs and who could not be trusted with the nuclear codes. In his debate with President Carter, Reagan successfully addressed the criticisms leveled against him. Instead of Barry Goldwater incarnate, Reagan came across as genial and trustwor-thy. He used his grandfatherly charm to deflect legitimate concerns „ without actually addressing them. When Carter ridiculed Reagan for his longstanding opposition to Medicare and Social Security, the Republican can-didate merely shook his head, chuckled and said, There you go again.Ž Four years later, Reagans age (73 by then) was even more of an issue, and there were serious doubts about the possible erosion of his mental capacity. He used a debate with opponent Walter Mondale to calm the roiling waters. I want you to know also I will not make age an issue of this campaign,Ž he said. I am not going to exploit for politi-cal purposes my opponents youth and inexperience.Ž Even the 52-year-old Mondale broke into laughter at that one. Every major candidate since 1976 has chosen to debate, except Carter, who refused to participate in the first 1980 debate because it included independent candidate John Anderson. As a result of Carters obstinacy, a second debate was canceled. He finally got his one-on-one confrontation with Reagan a scant week before the election. As Carter learned by rough experience, shunning a debate is a risky political stratagem. There have been memorable debate moments since that 1984 Reagan-Mondale meeting, but none could be considered true game-changers. Sure, Michael Dukakis gave an embarrass-ingly detached and bloodless answer to a hypothetical question about how he would react if his wife were raped. And in 2000, Al Gore repeatedly and annoyingly sighed while George W. Bush spoke. Gore at one point also creepily strolled across the stage and invaded Bushs personal space. But nothing on the debate stage in 1988 or 2000 altered the course of the elections. Trump v. Clinton, however, could prove to be as decisive as the debate of 1960. The race is close, and voters have grave reser-vations about both candidates. Trump is typed as mercurial, racist and supremely unfit for the office he seeks. Clinton carries the extensive bag-gage of more than three decades spent in the public eye. Dogged by scandals, both personal and political, she continues to reel from disclosures about her use of emails as secretary of state, the involve-ment of the Clinton Foundation in her duties as a public official and even the failure to announce a pneumonia diag-nosis. She seems incapable of putting the email matter or the Clinton Foundation imbroglio to rest. All of this has taken a toll on her standing. Polls reveal that she is seen by a majority of likely voters as dishonest and unlikable „ a circum-stance shared with Trump. These upcoming debates (Sept. 26, Oct. 9 and Oct. 19) may be the last real opportunities both candidates have to redefine their images and reenergize their candidacies. How Trump and Clinton approach this crucial showdown says much about their personalities and also their approaches to the election and indeed to the office of president as well. QQQ THE COMMISSION ON PRESIDENTIAL Debates is a private, nonpartisan organi-zation designated by federal law to spon-sor presidential (and vice presidential) debates. The CPD, which includes both Republicans and Democrats, came into being in 1987 because of the haphazard manner in which debates in 1976, 1980 and 1984 were put together. The CPD has generally received high marks from both political parties until this election cycle. Trump has suggested „ without proof „ that the debates might be riggedŽ against him. One of the diciest propositions addressed by the CPD is selecting moderators. Trump has waged a vigorous campaign against the media during his campaign, savag-ing just about every major news outlet at one time or another and referring to reporters as scumŽ and horrible peo-ple.Ž Finding moderators „ other than someone along the lines of Sean Hanni-ty, the a vowed Trump mouthpiece at Fox News „ who would please the notori-ously finicky Republican candidate, has been dicey. Holt of NBC moderates the first debate, Martha Raddatz of ABC and Anderson Cooper of CNN host the second (a town hall setting) and Chris Wallace of Fox gets the final encounter. Much to the relief of the CPD, Trump has indicated he can live with its choice of moderators. Trump approaches the debates in his typically loosey-goosey manner. He gathers around him trusted advisers at informal settings, such as one of his golf properties, where participants conduct freewheeling sessions while consum-ing bacon cheeseburgers and hot dogs. Usually present is campaign CEO Steve Bannon, former Fox News honcho Roger Ailes, campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani and Laura Ingraham, a conser-vative talk radio personality. His debate prep is Donald Trump sitting around the table with a series of advisers, talking about issues,Ž a Trump aide told CNN. As opposed to sitting there reading a briefing book, what hes doing is learning by talking to people.Ž Trump „ who loves to wing itŽ either from the stump or the debate podium „ has said he believes you can prep too muchŽ for a debate. And while his staff dutifully assembles briefing books for him, Trump is not the sort to spend hours poring over them. It can be dangerous,Ž he said of extensive debate preparation. You can sound scripted or phony „ like youre trying to be someone youre not.Ž In a Labor Day interview with David Muir of ABC News, Trump was asked about the run-up to the debate. Im prepping, maybe not in the traditional way,Ž he explained. When I had the debates, I had 11 debates „ as you know „ in the primaries, and I was very satisfied. Everybody else was very satis-fied with the way I did. And I think Im working the same way I did there.Ž This lack of preparedness, this unpredictability makes Trump an extremely dangerous opponent for Clinton. How do you prepare for someone who could say anything at any moment? Brian Fallon, Clintons chief spokesman, neatly summarized the pitfalls facing his candidate when he recently tweeted: For all his lack of substance, Trumps showmanship, as ex-TV star, makes him a formidable debate foe. He trashed his rivals in GOP debates.Ž For her part, Clinton seems to regard the debate in much the same way a lawyer „ which she is „ would a big court case. While Trump avoids the heavy lifting of debate prep, Clinton, who has never met a briefing book that she did not absolutely adore, eagerly embraces it. This attention to fine, nuanced points of policy might, in a normal presidential campaign be a strength, but this time around it calls into sharp relief Clin-tons extraordinary vulnerabilities. She struggles as a public speaker to come across as genuine, often shouting as if her microphone has unaccountably been rendered mute. Even her aides acknowl-edge that she has trouble connecting emotionally with her audience „ some-thing that cannot be said of Trump. While her command of facts is often impressive, her delivery and demeanor can be her undoing. One-on-one against someone like, say, well-mannered and always-prepared Ohio Gov. John Kasich „ a detail-oriented policy wonk like Clinton who failed in his bid for the Republican nomination „ she might do just fine. But facing a firebrand the likes of Donald Trump is a whole different ball game. Moreover, Clintons penchant for stilted, lawyerly pronouncements that sound as if they have been lifted from a labori-ously drafted brief does little to amelio-rate her considerable negatives. Being candid and trustworthy are the two last, big hurdles for her, and the debate is as much about dealing with those as disqualifying Trump,Ž an unnamed Clin-ton adviser told Politico. How she deals with it „ and her ability to project herself as real and genuine doing it „ is an open question. ... If she gives a canned, evasive answer I can easily see him pouncing and calling her a robot.Ž In the end, there is no single, perfect means for getting ready for a debate, according to someone who should know „ Sean Ridley, director of debate at the University of Florida. Both (styles of preparation) work,Ž Ridley said in an email interview. For me debate is about being comfort-able with and confident in your argu-ments. Regardless of the way (Trump and Clinton) prepare, their contrasting approaches should be entertaining and more importantly help people figure out which they deem more credible.Ž A great debater, Ridley explained, is someone who knows their arguments, is credible delivering them and is pre-pared to respond to the opposition.Ž In one of the stranger disclosures leading up to the debate, it has leaked that the Clinton camp is consulting psy-chologists and psychiatrists as to what sorts of accusations and insults might cause Trump to lose his cool on stage. They are undertaking a forensic-style analysis of Trumps performances in the Republican primary debates, cataloging strengths and weaknesses as well as trig-ger points that caused him to lash out in less-than-presidential ways,Ž The New York Times noted. Given Trumps notoriously thin skin and flash point temper „ all of which have been on abundant public display for more than a year „ the idea that Clinton needs help in this area seems rather puzzling. Briefing books and shrinks aside, the debate should be a Roman gladiator-like spectacle, if nothing else. Trump has compared presidential debates to professional wrestling matches, and, in many respects, hes not far off the beam, especially when he is one of the partici-pants. But professional wrestling (spoiler alert here for fans of this sportŽ) is fake, scripted, with a predetermined winner. There is no script for Sept. 26, no anointed winner in advance. It will unfold as it is meant to unfold, for better or for worse „ with worseŽ being the odds-on favorite at this juncture. And that is precisely why, my fellow Americans, we all will be watching.

A14 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELImage is as important as ability to the Infiniti QX80The Infiniti QX80 takes a long history of a celebrated and capable SUV and adds a dose of luxury. Its plainer cousin, the Nissan Patrol, hasnt been available in this country for decades, so while its unknown in the USA, it is a big deal from Tokyo to Dubai. Just as Toyota gave Lexus its own version of its go-anywhere Land Cruiser, Nissan and Infiniti share a similar relationship with the QX80. This full-size SUV doesnt try to hide its bulk. The hood is one big power bulge; the body is tall and boxy and the 22-inch wheels are the size of toddlers. Its a design that works exceptionally well in this class. After all, a large SUV is supposed to make an impression, and this one physically takes up so much space it cannot be denied. Getting in is a multistep process, thanks to this extra-tall ride. Thats also why theres a built-in side footstep for all passengers. Once inside, there is an instant feeling of luxury. Leather and wood cover nearly every surface, even at the most basic trim level. Theres plenty of stor-age room, but when it is not in use, Infiniti provides more natural-feeling lumber to cover up those cubbyholes. The huge exterior size translates into a very airy feeling from behind the wheel, with the height and large windows mak-ing for a commanding view of traffic. Two rows of bucket seats mean this one is the first choice for a double-date night. Plus, the accommodations for three in the third row are comfortable enough so teenagers and children will never complain. Those who need to carry more people can opt to turn the second row into a bench, which brings the total seating to eight. It might seem a little odd to charge extra to get rid of the second row captains chairs, but for the small market of people who carry a brood, its a distinctive option. The 5.6-liter V8 is the only motor available across the entire QX80 lineup. But with 400 hp and 413 lb/ft of torque, it has a small power advantage over the Toyota Land Cruiser and Lexus LX570 twins. Infinitis engine is a multi-valve V8 with dual overhead camshafts and variable valve timing. What this means in the real world is it has a big V8 grunt when needed for work duty, and theres also decent acceleration in low-speed city traffic. Infiniti made sure that the suspension was softened enough to meet luxury car standards, but this SUVs Nissan Patrol heritage cannot be erased „ and thats a good thing. The rigid chassis thats the backbone of this SUV combines with the torque-happy motor to make for an impressive 8,500-pound towing capac-ity. Thats on par with some of the best of the full-size American SUVs, which means the boat can be trailered along for the road trip. The Patrol heritage also provides real off-road capability. The QX80s optional 4x4 drivetrain has an automatic differential thats found on most other luxury SUVs/crossovers. But the Infiniti also has a two-range transfer case for added utility in the snow and, especially important for Florida, sand. Competition comingThe QX80 will start experiencing competition from another source when the 2017 Nissan Armada switches to the Patrol platform. The Armada doesnt receive the power bulge hood styling and makes 10 hp less from the same V8 motor, but the refinement and capabil-ity are still quite comparable to the QX80. Nissan has elevated the Armadas luxury quotient, so theres even a bit of price overlap between the Infiniti and its more pedestrian relative. And that might be the QX80s saving grace. Luxury SUVs are often bought more for image than they are for capability. For every time owners need to haul a horse trailer across town, theres likely a dozen times theyre valet parking the same vehicle downtown. In a case like this, its worth the extra money to make sure your SUV doesnt share a badge with the $12K Nissan Versa.So yes, snob appeal will continue to win QX80 customers over the Armada, but the Infiniti isnt chosen purely out of vanity. Its genuine ability is what gets these custom-ers to the showroom in the first place. Q myles KORNBLATTmk@autominded.com FLORIDA WRITERSPunta Gorda author works for fair, full, informed voter participationQ Make Democracy Work Again: A Blueprint for the 2016 Election and BeyondŽ by Teresa Jenkins. Book Bro-ker Publishers. 362 pages. Trade paper-back, $15.99.Playing off the principal slogan of the Trump campaign, with its implicit racial and cultural elitism, Teresa Jen-kins has crafted a mighty call for a strong resurgence of true democracy as viewed from the left side of the polit-ical pulpit. The author presents a carefully researched and reasoned argument that is really three arguments in one. The first strives to extol the virtues of what enemies would call big government. Ms. Jenkins applauds having a government big enough to con-tinue the social benefits that, beginning with FDR, the Democratic liberal-leaning agenda has brought forth. She sees these accomplishments, from Social Security to the Affordable Care Act, as part of a con-tinuum that must keep advancing. Her second argument is for the absolute necessity of respectful political debate in which the contest is truly one of ideas, not slogans or name-calling or fear mongering. The third argument calls for the widest possible enfranchisement of citizen voters. The more that citizens embrace the ballot box and all the other means of engagement that shape government action, the more the American Dream is realized. This o utcome r equires selfeducation and open-minded listening. Ms. Jenkins drives home her concerns in 12 tightly organized chapters, each compressing a heap of fact and a mea-sure of passionate, honest opinion. First comes a historical overview of our major political parties, focusing on changes that evolved through the second half of the 20th century and continue today. Piv-otal figures are President Richard Nixon, Newt Gingrich and George Wallace. The second chapter establishes a pattern of analyzing and criticizing Repub-lican policies and politics. Though she always sets the issues in the context of each partys stance and rhetoric, Ms. Jen-kins emphasis on Republican negatives does not allow much room for Demo-cratic positives. Im not sure how effec-tive this strategy will be in winning over anyone from the enemy camp. The chapter titles poison the well: Todays Republican Party: The Return of Ebenezer Scrooge,Ž A Silent Minor-ity No MoreŽ (in which Ms. Jenkins takes on the Tea Party), Waging a War on Women and Non-Traditional Mar-riageŽ and Opposition to Immigration Reform: A Cynical StrategyŽ are exam-ples. Within each chapter and subchap-ter, her arguments are compelling, but more neutral chapter titles might serve her goals more effectively. I should make it clear that I agree with almost everything Ms. J enkins has to say. However, I think she could do more than just fire up those already prone to agree with her. Sure-ly she intends to change some minds, but there are ways to accomplish this that are more likely to succeed. The books later chapters are probably of greater importance than those shaped as parti-san attacks, however well reasoned. These chapters look into the structural matters that control voter registra-tion and voter turnout. The author reminds us that the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution (passed in 1870), which gave former male slaves the right to vote, privileged Republicans. Southern Democrats worked to suppress the black vote. Though the parties posi-tions have been reversed, we still find the politicians maneuvering to either shrink or enlarge the electorate depend-ing on the expected benefits of either adjustment. This is true at all levels: national, state, county and municipal. The location of polling places, what hours they are open, whether or not early voting or mail-in voting is permitted „ these and other factors too often are manipulated to shape o utcomes. Ms. Jenkins analyzes the demographic changes in recent decades and the games-manship connected with voter identification photos and other state and local regulations that, in one way or another, limit registration and election turnout. For her, the health of the nation depends on equal access for all citizens to exercise their vot-ing rights. She is an ardent fighter against regulations designed to block entry to the voting booth, and how can anyone not want to join that fight? Make Democracy Work AgainŽ is filled with useful graphs and charts that clarify demographic issues. All in all, it is a clearly written, aggres-sively argued plea for fair and full citizen engagement. A seasoned federal government executive and leader of nonpartisan voter edu-cation organizations, Ms. Jenkins makes her home in Punta Gorda.

HEALTHY LIVINGEarly intervention can lessen the effects of learning disabilities NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHReading, writing and math are the building blocks of learning. Mastering these subjects early on can affect many areas of life, from school and work to ones overall health. Its normal to make mistakes and even struggle a little when learning new things. But repeated, long-lasting problems can be a sign of a learning disability. Learning disabilities arent related to how smart a child is. Theyre caused by differences in the brain that are present from birth, or shortly after. These dif-ferences affect how the brain handles information. Typically, in the first few years of elementary school, some children, in spite of adequate instruction, have a hard time and cant master the skills of reading and writing as efficiently as their peers,Ž says Dr. Benedetto Viti-ello, a psychiatrist and child mental health expert at NIH. So the issue is usually brought up as a learning prob-lem.Ž In general, the earlier a learning disability is recognized and addressed, the greater the likelihood for success in school and later in life. Initial screening and then ongoing monitoring of childrens performance is important for being able to tell quick-ly when they start to struggle,Ž explains Brett Miller, Ph.D., a reading and writ-ing disabilities expert at NIH. If youre not actively looking for it, you can miss opportunities to intervene early.Ž Each learning disability has its own signs.A child with a reading disability might be a poor speller or have trouble reading quickly or recognizing common words. A child with a writing disability might write very sl owly, have poor handwriting or have trouble expressing ideas in writ-ing and organizing text. A math disability can make it hard for a child to under-stand basic concepts like multiplication, make change in cash transactions or do math-related word problems. Not all struggling learners have a disability. Many factors affect a persons ability to learn. Some students might learn more sl owly or need more practice than their classmates. Poor vision or hearing can cause a child to miss whats being taught. Poor nutrition or exposure to toxins early in life can also contribute to learning difficulties. If a child is struggling in school, parents or teachers can request an evaluation for a learning disability. The U.S. Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act requires that public schools provide free special education support to children, including children with specific learning disabilities, who need such services. To qualify for these services, a child must be evaluated by the school and meet specific federal and state requirements.Many people with learning disabilities can develop strategies to cope with their disorder. A teacher or other learning spe-cialist can help kids learn skills that build on their strengths to counter-balance their weaknesses. Educators might provide spe-cial teaching methods, make changes to the classroom or use technologies that can assist a childs learning needs.A child with a learning disability might also struggle with low self-esteem, lack of confidence and frustration. If appro-priate interventions are provided, many of these challenges can be minimized. Effective intervention requires consistency and a partnership between school and home. Medications and behavior-al interventions are often delivered at home. Teachers can usually advise par-ents on how to help kids at home, such as by scheduling appropriate amounts of time for learning-related activities. Many complex factors can contribute to the development of learning disabili-ties. Learning disorders tend to run in families. Home, family and daily life also have a strong effect on a childs ability to learn starting from a very early age. Parents can help their children develop skills and build knowledge during the first few years of life that will support later learning. Early exposure to a rich environment is important for brain development,Ž says Kathy Mann Koepke, Ph.D., a math learn-ing disability expert at NIH. Engage your child in different learning activities from the start. Before theyre even speak-ing, kids are learning „ even if its just listening and watching as you talk about what youre doing in your daily tasks.Ž Point out and talk with children about the names, colors, shapes, sizes and numbers of objects in their environ-ment. Try to use comparison words like more thanŽ or less than.Ž This will help teach your child about the relation-ships between things, which is important for learning math concepts, Ms. Mann Koepke adds. Even basic things, like getting enough sleep and eating a healthy diet, can help childrens brain development and their ability to learn. NIH is continuing to invest in research centers that study learning challenges and their treatments, with a special focus on understudied and high-risk groups. Although there are no cures,Ž early interventions offer essential learning tools and strategies to help lessen the effects of learning disabilities. With support from caregivers, educators and health providers, people with learning disabilities can be successful at school, work and in their personal lives. Q

BUSINESS FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2016 A16 | WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM Opera announces promotion, new hires SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYPalm Beach Opera has announced a promotion and three new hires. David Walker has been promoted to managing director. Rick Zullo has been named marketing and PR manager, Natalie Parker is now individual giving manager and Dennis Perry is now audience services associate. Mr. Walkers promotion and the appointments of Mr. Zullo, Ms. Parker, and Mr. Perry, are specifically structured to continue the Palm Beach Operas success in securing increases in both earned and contributed income, significantly increase support for the companys programs, as well as to continue the companys success-es in ensuring long-term sustainability. We are thrilled to welcome our new team members whose expertise and personable demeanor will greatly enhance Palm Beach Operas ability to continue strengthening our sustainabil-ity and growth, enhance our already extremely high level of artistic quality and programming, broaden our diverse and robust educational and outreach efforts, and attract new audiences into our opera family,Ž Mr. Walker said.Mr. Walker has managed fundraising and marketing campaigns for many arts organi-zations, including the Glimmerglass Fes-tival (Cooperstown, NY), Sarasota Opera, the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, Fort Worth Opera, Cincinnati Opera and the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, and has had a major opera career perform-ing with some of the most prestigious opera houses and orchestras in the world. Mr. Walker, who was most recently the director of institutional advancement, was promoted in late July. Mr. Zullo, who was an internet marketing consultant with Simple Digital Branding, and Mr. Perry, who was a customer service rep-resentative at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, began in August. Ms. Parker, who was a development associate with the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County, will begin this month.Palm Beach Opera was founded in 1961. The season is available online at pbopera.org. Q BY JAN NORRISjnorris@” oridaweekly.comIts hard to wrap your head around future technology changing so fast that even engineers feel overwhelmed with possibilities. So it is with 3-D printing, which has come to a storefront in Palm Beach County. John Calloway, 24, is the founder, president and chief operating offi-cer of Halo Technologies Inc., which opened a space this summer on Datura Street in downtown West Palm Beach. The 3-year-old firm is a group of engineers and designers who work in CAD (computer assisted design) pro-grams to create precise renderings for prototypes for clients. As a design/engineering group, as the business grew, it was people com-ing to us saying not just Can you make this design for me? but Can you build a model or prototype?ŽSEE EFFECT, A17 XHALO effect “As a design/engineering group, as the business grew, it was people coming to us saying not just ‘Can you make this design for me?’ but “Can you build a model or prototype?’” — John Calloway, 24, founder, president and chief operating officer of HALO Technologies Inc. Tech firm opens 3-D print shop to create everything from models to body parts.COURTESY PHOTOVisitors watch the 3-D printer working at Halo Technologies in downtown West Palm Beach.WALKER PARKER ZULLO PERRY

In the past, designing and making a model could take months to draw, revise and create through traditional modeling processes such as injection molding „ making a mold and injecting it with resin or metal, tooling it, then tweaking it to the clients specifications. It then required an all-new mold just for a prototype. Enter 3-D printing and scanning. 3-D was there in college; a lot of us were able to play around with it in labs,Ž Mr. Calloway said. But printers were expensive and programming for them was still evolving with limited applica-tions. The technology is catching up, he said, to the point where middle school sci-ence students can program the printers, and prices are such theyre available for a few thousand dollars for a decent tabletop model. Now, he said, the technology is used in Everything from simple to complex designs: toys to aero-space. Anyone from NASA scientists to 10-year-old kids are using it.Ž But despite the name, its not a local print shop thats a quick-turn affair. Theres a major learning curve with soft-ware interfaces and limitations on the applications. Thats where Halo comes in „ educating the scientists and tinkerers alike. The reality is the big companies have 3-D printing, but they dont know what to do with it. Lockheed, Pratt, they all have 3-D. Were helping companies with exist-ing machines use them.Ž Teaching businesses and individuals the possibilities for the technology is the goal of the storefront. Shelves are lined with 3-D printed dinosaurs and modern drinking cups in a variety of colors. Oth-ers hold intricate minimodels of the Taj Mahal and the U.S. Capitol. Mr. Calloway is quick to show off the giant nuts and bolts and ratchet wrench that are func-tional examples of how the 3-D printing can be flexible, yet strong. Spools of resin cords that are fed into the printers line another shelf. And the printers, small enough to fit on other shelves, are displayed in the windows. The technology is more than 30 years old, he said, but in the last decade, it has taken off with competitors bringing faster and cheaper machines to the market. This is fused deposition modeling „ FD modeling in the vernacular. Think of a hot glue gun. The resin is heated up and built up a layer at a time.Ž This is called additive manufacturing, as opposed to subtractive manufacturing where an object is put into a mold and design areas revealed after cutting or drilling to form the object. Theres really very little waste „ thats also a plus to this. You are building up lay-ers of material, rather starting with a solid and subtracting.Ž While he doesnt expect the process to wipe out the human element in manufac-turing „ someone must run the robots on any line, he points out, and program the software that drives them „ there are plenty of applications where 3-D printers could replace existing jobs. He sees the field growing exponentially, yet says, Its still just one more tool in a toolbox.Ž The firm has 10 printers now; many are the MakerBot Replicator tabletop models. But he expects to have several more in a warehouse location by next spring. They are currently waiting for a printer that will print a 6-by-4-by-4-foot object. While a majority of items are printed using a material called pla (polylactic-acid) „ a resin, any material except glass can be used. We can print one or two colors at a time right now, any color, but its expanding to full-color soon,Ž he said. Costs are relative to the complexity and design of the objects. He showed a simple business card holder with a logo on it „ it could run as little as $5 per holder in volume. Cost includes the CAD and design time, the model and then the print time. Still, it could be less than $1,000 for a unique design,Ž he said. But its not a quick-print, he said. The expectations are that someone can drop off a drawing and we have it ready for them that afternoon. Its not that fast. It can take a few weeks, and if its a detailed design, maybe a couple of months.Ž Signs on the walls and photos point to the major fields theyre focused on: aero-space, medical, military, marine, automo-tive, and architecture. With the proximity of the marine industries nearby, Mr. Calloway said its an easy fit to offer services to that group for manufacturing and tooling parts „ at a fraction of the cost and time that tradi-tional methods require. The parts are made of a strong resin, which also is corrosion resistant, better for the saltwater environment, he said „ and at a fraction of the cost. One knob for a ship was quoted at $300,000 to retool. We converted the item to a durable plastic from metal, and can produce it under $50,000. Thats just one simple example. There are thousands of parts that can be built using 3-D.Ž Durability and strength are a surprise to many, who envision simple plastic items coming from a small printer. At NASA, many of their working planes have 3-D printed parts. There are hypercars with them „ the Zonda is running with 3-D printed turbos.Ž But he is most excited about the potential in the medical field with prosthetics. He has met with Chad Coarsey, an FAU student fitted with a 3-D-printed hand. It takes months and sometimes years, to get kids fitted with a prosthetic. They can cost tens of thousands of dollars. Then they grow, and it becomes useless. With a 3-D printer, you can create a hand that is fully functional, and it will take weeks, not months, and cost hundreds, not thousands. When they outgrow it, we could print a new one,Ž Mr. Calloway said. The portability of the machines, and low cost for materials make it a sure fit for charities doing work in war-torn areas and foreign countries where prosthetics are far beyond the reach of most who need them, he said. Mr. Coarsey, 26, said the benefits to a 3-D printed prosthesis are great. We can custom-print a hand in certain colors for the kids. Its beyond words, the reward of seeing their faces when they get a func-tioning hand.Ž More exciting is the possibility of other 3-D medical applications, he said. Were going to be printing out functioning organs. Dr. Ataly at Wake Forest Univer-sity has printed a functioning bladder.Ž Testing cancer on 3-D printed cells is an ongoing experiment, he said. Because of FDA regulations, Halo cant make prosthetics for anyone except as a prototype, but Mr. Calloway expects those laws to change over time. But its still early in the technology, relatively speaking, he said. Theres no end to what could be possible in any field. Everyone is still learning it.Ž He referenced the rehydrated pizza machine from a famous movie. It so hap-pens that pizza vending machines are just now a reality in New York City. It really is Back to the Future stuff.Ž Q GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2016 BUSINESS A17EFFECTFrom page 25 >> Halo Technologies Inc. is at 226 Datura St., West Palm Beach.

What brought me to Florida: College. My first job and what it taught me: My first job after graduating from Florida Atlantic University was at Spirit of Women in Boca Raton. From that position and several courses and vol-unteer work during college, I learned that I had a real passion for working in a non-profit organization. I also learned how to network, build relationships and become very organized and detail oriented. A career highlight: Planning my first gala at the Kravis Center for the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County then seeing the event come to fruition and knowing that I made it happen was a special moment in my career. What I do when Im not working: I love to spend time with my family. My 1-year-old daughter definitely keeps me busy. I also enjoy reading, going to the pool and singing. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: Stay dedicated to your organizations mission and cur-rent trends in fundraising. Its all about personality, creativity and building rela-tionships. About mentors: When you are first starting out in your career, I think it is incredibly important to have a mentor. My mentor was able to guide me and help me figure out my strengths and how to improve upon my weaknesses. She also provided me with the tools to succeed by sending me to many profes-sional development courses, enabling me to learn best practices.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2016 | SECTION B WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM You may have been mesmerized by reflections on the waterway, but have you ever paused to admire the beauty of an I-95 overpass? How about the back alley view of downtown shops? Until Oct. 6, can see such images glorified in oil paintings by award-winning artist Janet Onofrey at the Palm Beach Gardens City Hall as part of its GardensArt pro-gram. We live in a time and culture where millions of images bombard our senses relentlessly at incredible speeds,Ž says Ms. Onofrey. But are we really seeing? My subject matter is not particularly outstanding, but scenes that are routinely overlooked ... the unseen. I select a perspective that is a reflection of a reality and a sense of place that at any moment can be lost to time. Primarily urban scenes, they also deal with the impermanence of our existence.Ž Ms. Onofrey, who was awarded the 2015 South Florida Cultural Consor-tium Fellowship for Broward County, used the award to travel to the cra-dle of Western art: Greece. She was accepted into the Skopelos Foundation residency on Skopelos Island, where she sketched and painted the architec-ture. I paint from life, en plein air, as the Impressionists coined the phrase at the turn of the last century,Ž Ms. Onofrey says. This slice of reality is set in isolation, without the presence of people, to evoke a sense of stillness and quietude that allows the character of the space to speak.Ž For students of art history, her paintings bring to mind the paintings of early and mid-20th century Ameri-can artist Edward Hopper, whose eerie paintings exude a quiet and lonely still-ness, often including a solitary figure. But, Ms. Onofreys paintings are void of people, almost as if people were extracted to create a peaceful world.

Military Trail, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410 Just north of PGA Blvd. on Military Trail scott SIMMONS ssimmons@floridaweekly.com A humidor that stirs up happy memories of Grandpa Bill COLLECTORS CORNERBought: Hospice of Palm Beach Resale, Plaza la Mer, 863 Donald Ross Road, Juno Beach; (561) 624-5495 or hpbcf. org/resale/.Cost: $8. The skinny: This majolica humidor combines the right amount of wit and whimsy. The tin-glazed ceramic piece is unmarked, other than some numbers. It dates from the 1880s and probably was made in Austria „ it certainly dates to before 1890, when the McKinley Tariff required that all foreignmade goods be marked with country of origin. The inside top of the lid has an opening, probably for inserting a moist sponge or cloth to keep the tobacco from drying out. It has a few minor chips here and there, but is in great condition for an object that is around 130 years old. Its colors are vivid and its expression is sweet „ I smile every time I see it. Q „ Scott Simmons THE FIND: Grandpa Bill had a ritual whenever he drove the familys old Chevy truck. Hed get himself seated comfortably, then stuff his cheeks with chewing tobacco, just like the squirrels that ran around the familys South Georgia farm loaded their mouths with nuts and berries. The truck was a 48 that had belonged to my great-grandfather, his father-in-law. To start it, youd pull the choke, turn the key, push the clutch and press a starter on the floor. The engine would rev and Bills cheeks would move with the rhythm of the truck, whose six cylinders purred like a Singer sewing machine, the valves slightly clicking. And we were off driving among the tobacco fields. He loved to take us on rides in that old truck, or drive us down to Tallahassee in a modern car. Bill, whose real name was Otho Levoy Coulter, was born in 1907 in Sale Creek, Tenn. He was my grandmother Dorothys second husband, and our step-grandfather. He hated his name, and we adored him.Like many men of his day, he loved his chaw. He also liked to sit in the back yard and smoke a cigar. Tobacco was part of the day to day for so many people in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The leaf, a cash crop for my family in Florida, Georgia and North Carolina, was thought to have medicinal properties „ I still remember my dad saying a poultice of chewing tobacco was effective for easing bee and wasp stings. The accoutrements of tobacco would have filled a Victorian home: Spittoons, if the man of the house chewed; ashtrays and humidors for smokers and chewers alike. The designs for these accessories typically were whimsical „ a humidor might be shaped like a childs or a dogs head. Ive seen one in the shape of a girl asleep in her highchair, a dish of porridge cooling on its tray. Of course, theres nothing healthful about tobacco, at least not as we know it. Grandpa Bill paid dearly for his love of the leaf, developing lesions in his mouth. My great-grandfather, grandfather and own dear dad all died of lung cancer. But those memories do not dim the pleasure I get from this latest find. I really love the colors.After all, the greens and the browns remind me a little of that old Chevy truck. And the bulldog, with its scrunched up face, resembles Grandpa Bill „ faithful and kind. Perhaps those are the best qualities.

B6 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYand wildly different musical styles who have produced albums in 2016 like The Freecoasters impressive debut Show UpŽ (reggae-soul rock, Fort Myers), Cog Nomens Twin StarsŽ EP (electro-psych pop, Miami), Peyote Coyotes eponymous EP (psychedelic garage bop, Pompano Beach), and Pleasures F----d Up Dreams Come TrueŽ (sex music for robots, Sara-sota). Many bands are finding their voice, working to establish a following in their hometown or juggling day jobs while scheduling weekend tours that crisscross the state at a relatively well-known but still somewhat undergroundŽ network of venues that privilege original music over cover bands „ established destinations such as the legendary Respectable Street in West Palm Beach and Rack em Spirits & Times (formerly Rack em Billiards) in Cape Coral. They are also hosted, if not especially well paid, by a growing number of brewer-ies, galleries, music festivals, and up-and-coming arts districts. The vast majority of these musicians are on the Art & Love team more than the Money & Power team, as novelist Jay McInerney coined it; they will be creating songs no matter what, and buying their album or paying a cover charge often just allows them to record more music and continue to tour. Late on an August night after The Freecoasters finished a set at Nice Guys Pizza in Cape Coral, their newest mem-ber, 22-year-old Englewood resident and keyboardist Rick Lombama, said over the noise of the bar, The musics the core of the matter. If we tried to do it for the money, I dont know what wed be doing. Its definitely the feeling of playing live and then people reciprocating, because you cant get that anywhere else.Ž Still, it is possible for hardworking DIY bands to eke out a living playing original music in Florida and to a smaller extent selling albums and merchandise. Yes, you can, but you have to be dedicated and do your homework and find the venues that cater to that,Ž said 43-year-old Florida music veteran Michele Woof-ter, who has played accordion with the Americana folk band Loxahatchee Sinners Union and more recently started a new experimental metal band, Koffin Varnish, with her husband. The Freecoasters 32-year-old lead singer and guitarist Claire Liparulo will book shows months in advance to secure gigs at some of the bands favorite venues. Telling your family to schedule you three months out into your life is really tough,Ž she said. You can tell your job that, but telling your niece or nephew thats why youre not at their birthday party, they dont get it.Ž O O OHE WORK THESE MUSICIANS ARE DOING is good news for people who hunger for fresh perspectives and voices in rock, but where do you find what speaks to you person-ally among the masses of music, find the sound that your ears long for? Heck, I was sneaking in the bars to play, I wasnt drinking or nothing, I want-ed to be around the rock n roll,Ž said Eric DeMayo, a hardworking 34-year-old stalwart of the Southwest Florida music scene, recalling when he was 16. I wanted to see a punk band play in front of me, or a heavy metal band. It was definitely impor-tant to get started young, you know?Ž Mr. DeMayo is now guitarist and lead vocalist for his latest band, the ska-punk group Bargain Bin Heroes, and co-founder of 239-FEST, with some two dozen bands (including his band and The Freecoast-ers) coming to Rackems in the Cape on Oct. 7-8. Spotify, iTunes and other music services algorithms work surprisingly well to make suggestions based on your tastes, but they wont necessarily connect you to most of the bands mentioned in this article. Neighborhood record stores such as Beach Records and Joes Record Exchange, both in Fort Myers, sell music from local bands and offer a wealth of knowledge about them. Owner Joe Honeycutt has followed the punk and alt-rock scene in Fort Myers (and for a while in Boston) for decades. Theres always been a little group of artsy bohemian types,Ž he said of Fort Myers. Always has been.Ž And the growth of schools such as Florida Gulf Coast University and Florida SouthWestern State College has helped supply the area with talent and a wider audience. I think now theres a younger presence than ever before, which is a good thing. This is the most happening I can remem-ber downtown (Fort Myers) ever being.Ž On the southeast coast, three Florida Atlantic University music students and friends formed Peyote Coyote about a year ago (sort of like a cross between Tame Impala, The Flaming Lips and The Beatles). The trio is made up of Jake Stu-art, 22, on bass; Cari Gee, 24, drums; and Ryan Huseman, 23, guitar and lead vocals. The band also formed a music collective called The Infinite Channel. Each week it posts new live videos of some of their favorite South Florida bands playing in one of their living rooms (at theinfini-techannel.com and on YouTube). O O OANZINES ARE FUN AND A PLACE TO find out whats on the audio menu, and PureHoney Magazine is one of the best.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 22-28, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B7graphics. Its fairly short, but chock full of music reviews by talented writers, news about shows and „ its best feature „ the free mixed Soundcloud playlist, more or less all songs from Florida bands or ones coming to play at a show in town, curated by publisher Steev Rullman. His lists are given as if from a trusted friend who has dedicated much of his life to finding, play-ing and promoting rock n roll in South Florida. He digs up the work you just dont have the time to seek out during your busy life, like Cog Nomen, for instance, and his favorite songs of the moment, from the West Palm musician Chaucer. You know that even if you dont like everything he recommends, there is a level of knowledge, genuineness and authentic-ity about it that you can respond to, and once every so often theres the possibility he could introduce you to something that could blow your mind. My mission is to get more people to hear the bands,Ž said Mr. Rullman, a soft-spoken 49-year-old who could almost pass for an FAU music student or a hip professor.PureHoney celebrated its fifth anniversary with Bumblefest, basically an extend-ed live version of one of Mr. Rullmans playlists, with 25 bands on five stages in downtown West Palm Beach on Sept. 17. Bands included the headliner, Stargazer Lilies, Cog Nomen and Peyote Coyote. The show was mostly free. There was a $5 cover, which will go to charity, at Respect-able Street. Two other good sources for information on local music are: Q North Fort Myers-based Seven Inches To Freedom, an insiders guide and a passionate, knowledgeable fans appreciation of punk and DIY hardcore, full of album reviews, interviews, books reviews, occa-sional obits and a wicked sensibility. (sitf-zine.storenvy.com). QLove Your Rebellion is a Fort Myers zine with a riot grrrl ethos and an empha-sis on the arts, filled with sharp editorials, poetry, short stories and more. It released a CD compilation of local bands this year, LYRs Babefest. (loveyourrebellion.org). O O OLORIDA HAS A DISJOINTED PATCHWORK of rock bands, venues and fans that sprawl like suburbia, ebbing and flowing with the years and styles and the states transient population and pooling at places like Howl Gallery & Tattoo in Fort Myers, its own intersection of art, beer and music. Theres an energy that changes every three to five years,Ž observed Mr. Rullman. They pool at Beach Records near Fort Myers Beach, where people crowded on a Saturday night in August, trying to figure out where to stand while the folk guitarist and singer Kyle Anne Duggan presented a new song with the lyric your music holds me closer than his arms ever could,Ž a reference to A.A. Bondy, one of her favorite musicians. Ms. Duggan was followed by the Exploding Pages, an immensely likeable blast of jangly country-tinged rock that recalled R.E.M., and Plural Being, a hardcore punk trio in which the drummer played so hard it seemed the set would disintegrate, and the vocalist screamed lyrics to a song about some people who start shit on the internet.Ž They pool in downtown Lake Worth on a hot Friday near the end of summer at Propaganda, where Peyote Coyote played two instead of one thoroughly rocking sets when the other band didnt show up and a kid who looked like he was overdosing was carried outside by staff but was later OK. Its really spread out, is the thing,Ž said bassist Mr. Stuart about the music scene, between sets. We play shows from West Palm all the way down to Miami.Ž They pool at urban arts districts such as Wynwood, the Miami neighborhood where the massive III Points music fes-tival will be held Oct. 7-9, and in up-and-coming Northwood Village in West Palm Beach at an art gallery and gelato shop, Bohema AG, that is another cultural inter-section all its own. Owner Paul Klov creates gelato with flavors like pink peppercorn with mascar-pone cheese, and goat cheese-tomato-and-strawberry swirl that are as eclectic as the bands and performers he booked to play there on a slow, rainy Saturday afternoon at the beginning of September. A sexy aer-ial yogi put on a show outside as the rain began and then later a few people took their pictures under a perfect rainbow that formed over the street and soon a sparse crowd inside listened to space-age techno rock duo Cog Nomen jamming for a while, until they took a break to secure an input with duct tape. Rock n roll is built on duct tape, coffee, nicotine and a lot of other crazy shit,Ž said Buffalo Brown, Cogs charismatic 44-year-old guitarist. His counterpart Ulysses Perez, 50, plays electronic drums. Both share vocals. The duo have been together since 2011, said Mr. Perez, who was born in Miami. Their latest album, the EP Twin Stars,Ž explores themes of technology and connect-edness „ although thats just something Mr. Brown noticed as they made it, not neces-sarily something they planned. I guess thats just the times were in,Ž he said. Q RECOMMENDED ALBUMS BY SOUTH FLORIDA BANDSQ The Freecoasters, “Show Up” (2016)This Fort Myers six-piece band surges with a big soulful sound and beats as lazy as swaying palm trees with well-written lyrics, making Show UpŽ a cohesive, satisfying listen from start to finish. Lead singer Claire Liparulo has a powerful voice but doesnt overplay her hand, bringing a wide range of emotions to 12 songs that gel into a story about escaping small towns, a roadtrip through Arizona, hard work, friendship, love and desire. Although Ms. Liparulo wrote much of the lyrics, the album was recorded as a fully collaborative process in a relatively short period of time. Because we wrote the album so fast, I think that had a hand in creating the cohesive feel of (the songs),Ž she explained. Because when you write them all within four months of each other theyre all going to be related to the feelings and experiences youre having at that time in your life, I think. I could be wrong but I sometimes think its a mistake when people go into the studio and they write an album over the course of a year, it can feel very disjointed.Ž Look for Show UpŽ on vinyl soon, as well. Vinyls really important to us because of the way we recorded the album,Ž Ms. Liparulo said. We did it on tape. We wanted a really warm classic old school sound like you would have gotten at Studio One in Jamaica.Ž Listen: thefreecoasters.bandcamp.com Q Cog Nomen, “Twin Stars” EP (2016)These Miami rock n roll veterans are exponentially larger than the sum of their two parts, unleashing a chill, spacy sound awash in expertly manipulated electronics that will hopefully be among the first sounds aliens hear from Earth. Their third album, Twin Stars,Ž should thrill fans and gain them new ones. Listen: cognomenmusic.com Q Peyote Coyote, “Peyote Coyote” EP (2016)Writes Tom Moffatt in PureHoney Magazine, the trio of FAU music students falls under the category of shoegaze but skews more towards the psychedelia rather than jazzy folk ƒ more washed out beach day than late nights spent writing poetry in your bedroom while tripping.Ž Exactly. Listen: thepeyotecoyote.bandcamp.com Q Exploding Pages, “Alabama Chrome” (2015)The Lee County five-piece bands easy harmonies, unassuming eclectic creativity and no-big-deal delivery of lead singer Mike Cosden deliver a jangly yet polished country-tinged indie rock record with campfire appeal. Listen: explodingpages.bandcamp.com Q Pleasures, “F----d Up Dreams Come True” (2016)Sarasota singer Katherine Kellys cool-spooky vocals are entrancing and the bluntly poetic lyrics and the bands heavy but melodic psych-rock atmospherics make for one of the most interesting records of the year. Listen: pleasuresbandcamp.bandcamp.comQ Chaucer, “Diamond Dogs – A Fanciful Romp Into the Civil War Themed Wine Cellar of Chaucer’s A-Material” (2016)According to records, punk died in 1978,Ž reads a review in PureHoney. Turns out it was cryogenically frozen and resuscitated in the West Palm Beach studio of Joshua Simkowitz.Ž Aka, Chaucer. The resuscitated version is better: funnier, smarter, not as loud or mean but even noisier than its 70s self. Listen: mynameischaucer.bandcamp.com Q Bargain Bin Heroes, “Bargain Bin Heroes” (2015)This stripped down Fort Myers punk-ska outfit can rip through a set like a dirty old T-shirt; the band is fun to see live. Fortunately, its latest self-titled offering of six songs captures a lot of that energy on disc. Turn it up loud and stick your head right up your speaker. Listen: bargainbinheroes.bandcamp.com Q Kyle Anne Duggan, “The Florida EP” (2016)The title track, Florida,Ž is an autobiographical examination of a characters conflicted feelings about returning home from New England to Southwest Florida, and the beauty and pitfalls of both areas, with searingly honest lyrics and lovely bluegrass-inflected guitar: New England broke my heart, so I decided to depart/To where a drinking habits cheap, and all the liars and the creeps/Are the company I keep.Ž Listen: kyleanne.bandcamp.com Q Koffin VarnishThis four-piece experimental psychedelic metal band includes South Music industry veterans and husband and wife musicians Marvin Ray Hawkins (guitar and vocals) and Michele Woofter (keys). Watch for a new album coming near the beginning of next year and for live shows. Listen: reverbnation.com/koffinvarnishQ Chris Farren, “Can’t Die.” (2016)Chris Farren grew up in Naples and gained a following with his emo-pop-punk band Fake Problems. Three months ago, after touring, he moved to Los Angeles, where he lives with his wife and continues to pursue a music career with his just released new album under his own name, Cant Die.Ž Think of The Promise Ring or Sunny Day Real Estate.

All moviegoers receive a ballot when they arrive. After viewing the 10 final-ists (total screening time approximately 130 minutes), they vote for their favor-ite. Staff at each venue tally the votes and notify Manhattan Short headquar-ters in New York City. The winning film will be announced Sunday, Oct. 3, on manhattanshort.com. Neither a touring nor traveling film festival, Manhattan Short (subtitled One World, One Week, One FestivalŽ) is the worlds first global film festival.Ž Founding director Nicholas Mason says it is the first film festival to ever take place in all 50 states. On the website, he outlines its history: In September 1998, he projected 16 short films on a screen affixed to the side of a truck on Mulberry Street in New York City. Before an audience of about 300 New Yorkers, the Manhattan Short Film Festival was born. It moved to Union Square Park the next year. Aside from celebrity judges including Susan Sarandon, Eric Stoltz, Laura Linney, Roger Corman and Tim Robbins, it remained a pretty low-key event,Ž Mr. Mason says. The 2001 festival was scheduled for Sept. 23, just 12 days after the terror-ist attacks on the World Trade Center. In the aftermath of the attacks, Union Square Park had become a shrine, a place where people gathered to grieve the loss of loved ones. Satellite trucks surrounded the park, broadcasting news from Ground Zero. Mr. Mason recalls that officials from the New York City Parks Department urged him, no matter what, to proceed with Manhattan Short as scheduled. We did,Ž he says, and the festival received a lot of attention in the global media. A direct result from this was, the following year we received double the amount of film entries than we had in previous years.ŽBy 2004, the festival had morphed into DVDs of the finalists being screened in seven U.S. cities over the course of one week in September. It was the first year that voting was handed over to the audience.The you be the judgeŽ concept was a huge success, Mr. Mason says. For 2005, 72 art house cinemas in 32 states screened the finalists. The next year, about two dozen cinemas in Europe joined the effort. I have become a firm believer that its the public that creates stars,Ž Mr. Mason says. Be it a film, a tune, a book, a new game, whatever. ... Get it out to the public, get it in the right place, the right forum, and the public will trans-form it and take it to a place one would never have imagined.Ž This years finalists were selected from among 600 entries from filmmak-ers in 48 countries. Total viewing time for the 2016 Manhattan Short Film Festival is 2 hours, 20 minutes. Heres a brief description of each film in the running: Q BravomanŽ (Russia, 18 minutes, 25 seconds) … Andrey is paid to rouse theatergoers from their seats, a job that turns him into a cynic until he meets a woman whose appreciation of the stage brings her to tears.Q CarouselŽ (England, 6 minutes) … A man doles out a torrent of accumulated wisdom to a teen with unexpected results.Q Ella Gets a Promotion?Ž (USA, 9 minutes) … A talented and loyal employee, finally gets the promotion she deserves. Or does she? A humorous look at duplicitous behavior in todays corporate America. Q GorillaŽ (France, 14 minutes, 5 seconds) … In 1952 H ollywood, Henry Corso performs as a costumed gorilla in horror and adventure movies. For Jun-gle Jenna,Ž he must terrorize the leading actress lost in a fake jungle. But scaring the woman he desires is going to be par-ticularly tricky for the gorilla man. Q Hold OnŽ (Netherlands, 20 minutes) … A talented young cellist suddenly develops stage fright after a string breaks during an important per-formance.Q I Am A PencilŽ (Australia, 5 minutes, 40 seconds) … Freedom of expression is the star of this animated film inspired by the 3 million people who marched in protest on Jan. 11, 2015, three days after the Charlie Hebdo massacre in France. Q KaputtŽ (Germany, 7 minutes) … This animated documentary about Hoheneck, the main prison for women in former East Germany, includes the voices of two former inmates. Q OvertimeŽ (Australia, 9 minutes) … Its getting late on a Friday night and Ralph is keen to get out of the office, but the boss wont let him. No big deal, right? Its just that the full moon is rising and Ralph is a werewolf. Q The Last Journey of the Enigmatic Paul W.R.Ž (France, 12 minutes, 35 seconds) Mankinds only hope of salvation rests upon the shoulders of the enigmatic Paul W.R., the most tal-ented astronaut of his generation. Mys-teriously, a few hours before the mission launch, Paul disappears.

But things are soon resolved, and everything goes back to normal. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Relationships could be either helpful or hurtful as you pur-sue your career goals. You might have to make some difficult choices depending on what your priorities are. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You might still have some doubts about a career move that could involve a lot of travel. If so, continue to check things out until you feel secure about making a decision. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Love rules, as Venus continues to exercise her cosmic influence on both single and attached Pisces. New developments might cause you to change your travel plans. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Cosmic changes create a potential for disruptions in your travel plans. In the meantime, you might want to con-sider shifting your focus to another area of your life that needs attention. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Its a good time for beauty-loving Bovines to enjoy something special for the senses. It will restore your spirit and return you to the workaday world ready for the next challenge. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) With your planetary ruler, Mercury, going retrograde, you might want to slow down the pace in pursuing some of your projects. Rushing things could be counterproductive. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Tensions begin to ease in those once-testy relationships. This helps create a more positive aspect all around. Expect to hear news that could lead you to rethink a recent decision. LEO (July 23 to August 22) The pace of activity that had slowed last week now begins to pick up. This is good news for Leos and Leonas who have career-building plans that need to be put into operation. BORN THIS WEEK: You often think of others before you consider your own needs. You enjoy helping people and would make a fine teacher or caregiver. Q W SEE ANSWERS, B14 W SEE ANSWERS, B14

The Okeechobee Steakhouse is approaching its 70th birthday, so the owners decided the old gal needed a spruce-up. We start our 70th year in October,Ž said Mike Lewis the third generation of the family who owns it. Hes the manager, and is overseeing a number of renovations. We just recently remodeled the entire bar-lounge area. Upgraded the bar and seats. Its very nostalgic: We went back to the original wood ceiling in the lounge area. It looks totally dif-ferent,Ž he said. They also completed part of an expansion, adding what he calls a bour-bon room. We started with an addition on the side. As it grew, it kind of evolved into a private club room.Ž It will seat 28 and a number of topshelf bourbons, more than 20, he said, will be on a list there. They will include Mr. Lewiss two favorites, Woodford Reserve and Charles Goodnight a 100-proof bourbon named for a charac-ter who inspired the novel, Lonesome Dove.Ž The Pappy Van Winkle reserve, an almost cult bourbon, is also planned to be on the list. To celebrate the opening of the room, a six-course bourbon pairing dinner is planned Oct. 18. Tickets are $150 by res-ervation at the restaurant. We may have another one „ theres already a big demand for it,Ž Mr. Lewis said. Meanwhile, bourbon casks and murals are being added to the dcor for the bourbon room, and a second, adja-cent private room seating 12, dubbed the martini room, is underway. It will be more feminine if you will, with a Rat Pack era feel,Ž he said. Both rooms will be used on an asneeded basis, which could be daily in season. Despite ups and downs in economy and health fads, theres no let-up in steakhouse diners, he said. Were still extremely busy.Ž Okeechobee Steakhouse, 2854 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach. 683-5151; okeechobeesteakhouse.com. Open for lunch and dinner daily. Coolinary Caf expanding to Craft Beer and Wine Bar Tim and Jenny Lipman the owners and hard workers behind the Coolinary Caf in Palm Beach Gardens, are finally realizing an expansion dream. The Parched Pig a bar-lounge serving local craft beers and thoughtfully selectedŽ wines and small plates, will take over a wine bar space recently vacated in the same plaza as Coolinary. Weve always wanted to expand the brand,Ž Mr. Lipman said. We were always looking for new outlets. So when The Vault went out of business down the way, we felt right about it. Its direct-ly in the same plaza.Ž Why craft beers? We make the trip all the time to go south to have some craft beers. There are a few places up here „ were friends with all of them „ but not that many choices.Ž He said theyre working with a number of local brewers to source beers „ Tequesta Brewing Co. and Civil Society in the north end, and Copperpoint Brewing Co. in the south. Ive got good friends at Barrel of Monks in Boca, too. Well reach out to all the local guys. We want to get into bombers, specialty beers, cask nights, and have some slightly unique things just for us.Ž The bar also will serve as a waiting room for the often packed Coolinary Caf. With 40 to 50 seats all inclusive, its about the same size as the restau-rant. On its own, its for those who maybe dont want to go high end, but not Duffys either. It will be a good date night but you wont have to wear a suit to come there.Ž The food will come from Coolinary. We wont have a full kitchen there „ no hood. But we want to focus on high-quality small plates. So well have some cold-water oysters „ we get them from Steve (Gyland) at Cod and Capers And well have a higher level charcuterie board. The toast menu is not neces-sarily bruschetta „ but different varia-tions. Peaches and basil and ricotta, or a sous vide egg over avocado.Ž Hell be able to oversee the food from the kitchen of Coolinary and by using sous vide „ a low-temperature preserv-ing system with foods sealed in airtight bags. These eliminate the need for cook-ing once opened. Theyll maintain their effort to source locally as much as possible. Were all about loyalty. All these people have been so good to us for so long. I couldnt ask for anything more. We dont buy from the broadliners „ no food items,Ž he said of the larger food wholesalers. We get paper products from them „ thats it. But when you go back and forth with all these companies trying to get something cheaper, just to save 15 cents here or a few bucks there, its not worth as much as the loyalty.Ž The dcor will follow Coolinarys „ clean modern lines, but with an out-side patio as well. It will have the same service as the restaurant. Were taking out the self-serve taps; were all about service.Ž A December opening is planned for The Parched Pig after the build-out. Mr. Lipman said, Its so great to see your vision come true. Ive got goose-bumps right now.Ž The Parched Pig will be in Donald Ross Village on Donald Ross Road at Military Trail in Palm Beach Gardens.In brief A couple of big festivals are coming up soon: The Feast of the Sea will return for its third year to the down-town West Palm Beach waterfront Oct. 22, with dozens of seafood vendors and a chefs seafood cookoff. It benefits the (Ernie) Els for Autism Foundation Their website, feastofthesea.com, has all the infoƒ. Feast of Little Italy will serve up the red sauce stuff during the annual Abacoa event Nov. 4-6. Info on that is at feastoflittleitaly.comƒ. Get your shopping bags ready: Green mar-kets open Oct. 1 „ watch for our story on those next weekƒ.

The Price: $9 The Details: The day was hot and muggy. I couldnt stand the thought of eating anything for lunch that was too heavy. Thats how this flatbread fit the bill.Fresh tomatoes, creamy mozzarella and aromatic basil topped a crispy crust for an oh-so-satisfying lunch. Also satisfying: The French dip, with plenty of tender roast beef, and beefy jus atop a toasted roll. Q „ Sc ott Simmons Brian St evenson, executive chef at the newly opened City Tap House, a gastro-pub in CityPlace, discovered his passion for cooking in a surprising place „ a hospital. After serving in the Marine Corps, Chef Stevenson returned to Chicago, his hometown, to be closer to his mom, a nurse. She helped him get a job in the hospital where she worked. I was plating up meals for patients and then one day one of the cooks didnt show up and I was asked to fill in,Ž Chef Stevenson says. I fell in love with it.Ž His boss at the hospital was an old German woman who had been a cook for more than 40 years, he says. She became his mentor and his inspiration. I looked at her and thought I want to do that,Ž he says. She taught me so much,Ž Chef Stevenson, 46, says. I owe her my whole career. She pushed me and told me I was good at this. She encouraged me to go to school and take advantage of my GI Bill.Ž So after his first mentor taught him everything she could, he went on to study at Triton College Culinary pro-gram in Northwest Chicago. After graduation, he joined Grand Lux Caf and helped open restaurants in Chicago, New York and Las Vegas before settling in South Florida. For 15 years, Chef Stevenson sharpened his skills as a corporate chef charged with opening restaurants, including branches of the Cheesecake Factory, Landrys Restaurant Group and Brio Restaurant Group. City Tap offers regional cuisine and craft brews from local breweries and our favorites from around the world. I feel lucky, Chef Stevenson says. I really love what I do.Ž A big fan of breakfast and brunch, Chef Stevenson, who lives in Delray Beach, has found a home at City Tap, which launched a brunch he says is far beyond bacon and eggs and your basic Bloody Mary. Chef Stevenson put his twist on the menu with signature dishes like the Braised Bacon B enedict, b utt ermilk biscuits, maple glazed pork belly, smoked paprika hollandaise, poached eggs ($15), Chicken & Waffles, fried chicken, buttermilk waffle, honey-th yme b utter, Pennsylv ania maple syrup, red pepper jam ($19) and the Georgia Peach Waffle, toasted pecan Belgian waffle, bourbon peach compote, molasses syrup, Chan-tilly cream ($13). His favorite? Pancakes.Our blueberry pancakes are delicious, the best Ive ever had,Ž he says. When hes not at the restaurant, Chef Stevenson enjoys playing guitar. He runs a mile six days a week to stay in shape. After all, a good chef tastes everything and that could pack on the pounds. Brian Stevenson Age: 46 Original Hometown: Chicago Restaurant: City Tap House in CityPlace, 700 S Rosemary Ave, West Palm Beach. Open daily for lunch and dinner and brunch on weekends. Phone: 508-8525; wpb.citytap.com. Mission: To build an environment where food quality and service is an absolute must. It should never be taken for granted and is something we work very hard for each and every day. I believe when you have that culture you have something special.

Culinary training: Triton College Culinary program in Northwest Chicago; Wydham Hotels; The Mansion on Turtle Creek and the Landmark Restaurant in Dallas; Napa Valley Grille Chicago; and Cheesecake Factory/Grand Lux Caf. Favorite footware in the kitchen: Leather Dansko Clogs „ They are the best! Advice to someone who wants to be a chef: Take it seriously from the beginning. Dont be afraid to take chanc-es with food. Search out your favorite chefs and try to work for them for at least a year. Leave on great terms and do it again and keep doing it till you have your own niche. Give it everything you have every shift you are in the kitchen. Become a better cook every day „ treat the craft with respect. Teach to the younger cooks coming up in the ranks. Be responsible, and most important: Taste your food! If it doesnt taste great to you it probably is not great „ re-make it.
