A14 Antonio and Katherine Amadeo, the award-winning South Florida couple who separately and together championed cutting-edge work through their Naked Stage company and who helped unite the local artistic community with their 24-Hour Theatre Project, plan to leave Florida, their artistic home and home to their family for most of their lives. Their departure, likely next summer for Colorado, ends their plans to open a new venue in West Palm Beach focused on exciting younger audiences about the-ater as an entertainment option. Citing changing family priorities, the couple plans to move with their two children after their older daughter, Lara, finishes the school year, they said. The co-founders of the Naked Stage worked 17 months planning and designing a 145-seat venue at the former Authentic Provence antiques shop at 522 Clematis St. When they revealed their plans pub-licly last summer, they thought it could take up to a year to open, but they said months ago that the logistics had been more challenging than they expected. If it had opened, it would have bookended Clematis with Palm Beach Drama-works at the other end, furthering city officials hope of revitalizing that down-town business-entertainment corridor. The couple wrote in an email, It was a dream come true for the artists in us who had longed for such a chance.

He was there to deliver a speech at the Congress of Racial Equality. In it, he decried the failures of white political leadership to address the inequalities suffered by black Americans. Neither Republicans nor Democrats escaped his scathing critique. He warned, If we dont do something real soon, I think you will have to agree that we are going to be forced to either use the ballot or the bullet. It is one or the other. ƒ It isnt that time is running out „ time has run out!Ž Almost a year later, he again gave warning: Brother and sister, let me tell you. I spend my time out there in the streets with people, all kinds of people, listening to what they have to say. And theyre dissatisfied, they are disillusioned, theyre fed up, theyre get-ting to the point of frustration of where they begin to feel, What do we have to lose? When you get to that point, youre the type of person who can create a very dangerously explosive atmosphere.Ž Fast forward. You might think Donald Trump borrowed the observations above for his own use recently. But Malcolm X made the comments decades ago, looking down the barrel of racial unrest in communities of color. He urged black Americans to join his revolution, observing white politicians talk the talk but never walk the walk of racial justice. When election season arrived, it was always the same. Politicians courted blacks but suppression of the black vote was ram-pant. He witnessed the despair, anger and the disaffection in the black community. It was a powder keg waiting to blow. Mal-colm X believed he was the match. He warned, if the ballot box failed to function and deliver racial justice, bullets most certainly would. He saw no American dream; only an American nightmare. Trump is a revolutionary, too. He also senses a powerful force, dormant but dangerous. It lacks only sufficient provocation to explode. The habit is deeply ingrained in this country, and when racial conflict erupts, it is not eas-ily quelled. He calls out to minority voters from the safety of white audiences. The irony is rich. He may not be a card-carrying white nationalist, but he is a pretty good imitation of one. Even so, he thinks he can play both sides of racial discontent to his political advantage. His revolution first attracted the angry voters for whom white privilege is not working so well anymore. They want to burn something down, even if it is their own house. Trump is their would-be armed missile aimed at the heart of the American democracy. He would reduce Washington to a smoking ruin. Trump represents a thin slice of Americans who deeply despise and hate their own government. They could care less that everything Trump stands for is inimical to democratic values and beliefs. After all, bombing the nations democratic ideals into oblivion is rather the point. Moral quandaries? Not at all. Meanwhile, Trump tells AfricanAmericans he identifies with their griev-ances, too. Thats because the system is rigged and stacked against him as well. He feels their pain. Hes employed the same equanimity of suffering hes used to compare his personal sacrifices to the sacrifice of Gold Star families. He models himself as a benevolent savior. Bring all your poor, suffering little chil-dren to me. But Trump rejects the legitimacy of the Black Lives Matter movement. He belongs to the country club of All Lives Matter.Ž He thinks black voters will embrace him anyway. He reaches out and urges them to join his coalition of disaffected, disillusioned, frustrated and fed-up white people. But it is a hard sell. They know that when Trump talks about civil rights, it isnt about the civil rights of minorities; its about civil rights entitled and protected by white privi-lege „ as it applies to citizenship, legal rights, education and economic oppor-tunity. Take, for example, the most fundamental right of citizenship in a democracy „ the right to vote. This will be the first presidential election since the Supreme Court took a wrecking ball to the 1965 Voting Rights Act. Every Republican-governed state freed from the restrictions moved to enact laws to make voting more diffi-cult, disproportionately disenfranchis-ing large numbers of minority voters. Alabamas state law, for example, strips the voting rights of about 15 percent of the states black voting age population based on their having been convicted of a felony involving moral turpitude.Ž Moral turpitudeŽ is what got Puritans hanged in Salem. When faced with the civil rights crisis of his time, Malcolm X put a rudimentary question to black Americans: Will it be ballots or bullets? Today, we are again on the edge of a national confrontation over the fundamental rights of minority com-munities. Were Donald Trump to answer Malcolm Xs question now, how would he answer? Bullets, but not ballots. Q „ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian. Her professional career spans more than 25 years leading major philanthropic institutions in the South and Appalachia.

And I have a lot of confidence in you. Heres why: Youre about to vote for a man who is nothing like you, who has no expe-rience of your world, who has taken huge advantage of it and of you for decades. Your willingness to ignore that suggests two qualities I cherish in the American character: One, youre tolerant of those unlike you even if theres a good chance theyll screw you and your kids to the wall; and two, youre willing to take risks and bet the long odds. You Trumpers want change. I do, too. You Trumpers dont see it happening from good ol boy Republicans „ the Romneys and McCains, the Bushes and Reagans. I dont, either. Those people would never do what Donald Trump promises: Put the Chinese in their places with trade. Make Mexico pay for a wall to keep out Mexicans. Tear ISIS a new DC (Defecatory Canal). Keep out Muslims. And lure back huge Ameri-can companies that moved jobs overseas (including Mr. Trumps), by lowering their taxes even more. Even though history suggests Mr. Trumps promises are nuanced at best or simply nonsense, youre betting the American republic on him. I admire your audacity. As everybody now knows, traditional Republicans are sweeter and nicer than you Trumpers. But I dont hold it against you. Besides, the GOP was never known for being particularly sweet or nice either, except to each other. With only a few exceptions Republicans have voted against poor people (cut pro-grams to help them); against old people (cut programs to help them); against work-ing people (squashed unions and wouldnt raise minimum wage); against sick people (stiff-armed health care for everybody); against new people (kept out immigrants, especially Muslims); against water and parks (let the Everglades dry up, the tribu-taries choke off and the Biscayne aquifer go to salt while sugar companies make bil-lions on land that could help save water); against kids and teachers (cut spending to a minimum); against women (rejected self-determination and equal pay for women); and against the middle class (made them pay more tax per income dollar than the rich). But Republicans have a yesŽ switch, too, not only a just say noŽ switch. So what have they voted for? Thats easy: big business, war and Jesus, in that order. Jesus is a lot of fun on Sunday mornings, as long as he doesnt get in the way of big business and war (which are synonymous for Republicans like Dick Cheney „ but thats another story). As a result, many Americans have spent the last 242 years ignoring Matthew 21:12, which must be the least-favorite Biblical verse of all time among successful Repub-licans who insist the nation remain Chris-tian in its values: And Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who were buying and selling in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money chang-ers ƒŽ John 2:15 even reports Jesus used a whip. The man had a temper, apparently, espe-cially around capitalists. As for rich men like Donald Trump, well, Jesus gave them an option (Matthew 19:16-21). And he said unto him ƒ if thou wilt enter eternal life, keep the command-ments. (The rich man) saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness. Honor thy father and mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. The (rich man) saith unto him, All these things I have kept from my youth up (obviously his name wasnt Donald Trump): What lack I yet?Ž A great question. So what did Jesus say to this guy? He did not say, You lack a casino or a tower or a fake university with your name on it, or a marble and gold Manhattan bed-room, or a house in Palm Beach so large you could move a small town into it.Ž And Jesus did not say, Because youre rich but you show poor business talent and had to declare losses of $916 million in 1995 (according to The New York Times tax analysis of his 95 returns), you should pay no taxes until you make up those losses with $916 million in gains, over the next 18 years.Ž During those years, rich and poor alike „ white, black, brown or blue „ helped fund wars and military defense. We built roads and bridges together, we hired police and firefighters together, we paid for edu-cation and exploration. Together. And we anted up for the elaborate training, weapons and difficult execution of a mission by Navy SEALS, who dropped in one night for a little visit with Osama bin Laden about nine years and four months after he helped kill 2,996 people in an attack on the United States. Mr. Trump did not help us do that „ if he didnt pay taxes. Friend and foe alike suggest he probably didnt. That makes me smart,Ž he has said, when asked. Meanwhile, Jesus said unto him, If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven. And come and follow me.Ž So it amounts to this: When you Trumpers vote for the man, I want you to know „ I love you people. And if your candidate wins, Ill congratulate you. But let me ask you to keep in mind the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.: This country has socialism for the rich and rug-ged individualism for the poor.Ž Whatever else he might change, Mr. Trump isnt going to change that truth. So somebody else will have to. Q GUEST COMMENTARYA call for a new era in Florida water management WOODY WODRASKAFormer CEO of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern CaliforniaAlbert Einstein defined insanityŽ as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. This same concept can be applied to the dismal state of affairs in water manage-ment in Florida. I suggest a complete change from the past 60-plus years of Florida water man-agement with a de-emphasis on the fed-eral government and a major emphasis on the need for leader-ship and direction from the state. Admittedly, Florida has a long way to go to gain the pub-lics trust when it comes to managing and protecting our water resources. The current administra-tion has effectively dismantled the states water management districts ,severe-ly curbing their staffing and financial resources. To a lesser degree, the same can be said of the Department of Environmental Protection, where two seats on the Envi-ronmental Regulatory Commission have been left vacant for months. Likewise, this administration has repeatedly turned a blind eye to real water crises. Whoever becomes the next governor will have to undo the draconian measures enacted by the Scott adminis-tration when it comes to water and the environment. So, here are some thoughts on enacting a new era in Florida water manage-ment. How about electing a majority of the water management district governing board members? We elect school board members, sheriffs, property appraisers and a host of other public officials because of the importance of local input. Doesnt our environment warrant similar local pro-tection and oversight? When I was the executive director of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, half of the members of my board were locally elected. I found those elected water management officials to be conscientious and more immune to the negative influences of state politics because they answered to the electorate. And, since the water management districts here in Florida have taxing author-ity, I believe their decisions should be accountable to the taxpayers. South Florida is one of the few areas in the country that is uniquely under the water management jurisdiction of the federal government and its plan-ning, construction and regulation of the Central & Southern Florida Flood Control Project. It was the federal gov-ernment that designed and built the Herbert Hoover Dike surrounding Lake Okeechobee. It is the federal government that reroutes excessive lake discharges to the St. Lucie canal and the Caloosahatchee River. It is the federal government that is slow playingŽ the retrofitting and hard-ening of the dike to safeguard against a probable and calamitous breach during high water levels in the lake. By the Corps of Engineers own admission, the Herbert Hoov er Dike is the WODRASKA SEE WATER, A22 X roger

This industry report shows clearly how the traditional ways of selling homes have become increasingly less and less effective in todays market. The fact of the matter is that nearly three quarters of homesellers dont get what they want for their homes and become disillusioned and worse financially disadvantaged when they put their homes on the market. As this report uncovers, most homesellers make 7 deadly mistakes that cost them literally thousands of dol-lars. The good news is that each and every one of these mistakes is entirely preventable.

And, while theyre at it, they plan to set a Guin-ness World Record for the number of glow-in-the-dark rubber bracelets pack-aged during the 10-hour affair at the South Florida Fair & Expo Center in West Palm Beach. The community will band together to stuff 100,000 Arc in the DarkŽ rubber bracelets into clear plastic envelopes for distribution to the public. Bracelets will be sold for $1 each, raising $100,000 for Arc. Besides raising money and awareness, the event will celebrate October as National Disability Employment Aware-ness Month. The Arcs adult clients literally will have a hand in the project by packaging these bracelets, and the public is invited to join the fun by participating in the Band Together day,Ž said Kimberly McCarten, CEO for The Arc of Palm Beach County. Last year it took a good six months for us to get going with the distribution,Ž Ms. McCarten said. So during our assessment, we looked for a way to get the commu-nity involved and decided to do it all in a day „ like the old telethons only without the TV.

Information tables will be set up to offer literature on child safety during the Halloween season of outdoor festivals and trick-or-treating. Safety is always a big issue for us and the bands do glow at night so people can see those wearing them,Ž Ms. McCarten said. Some people buy boxes of them and hand them out as Halloween treats.Ž Activities throughout the day will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10:30 a.m. with County Commissioner Paulette Burdick, West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio and Riviera Beach Mayor Thom-as Masters; performances by high school marching bands, photos with fun costumes and props and music by a deejay. The event, she said, would be a whole lot of work and a whole lot of fun. Were all about fun,Ž Ms. McCarten said. We make sure its fun.Ž The Arc in the Dark campaign was inspired by the CEO of The Gehring Group, Kurt Gehring, whose brother is a client of the Arcs Career Transition Program.

A Neapolitan mastiff named Tia gave birth to a whopping 24 puppies in November 2004, setting a world record that has yet to be broken. 2. a, b, c, d. If you chose any of these answers, you are correct. Bicolor dogs can have a little white or a lot, but the term Irish spotting typically applies to dogs with a specific symmetrical pattern of white markings, such as the Boston terriers white muzzle band, white blaze between the eyes and over the head, white collar and white forechest. 3.

They were used for herding, pull-ing carts, driving cattle and guarding the farmstead. 5. False. When 19th-century American ranchers imported Australian sheep, the flocks were tended by Basque shepherds and their blue herding dogs.

FLORIDA WRITERS Compendium of Florida facts and follies links the loony, lousy and laughableQ Oh, Florida! How Americas Weirdest State Influences the Rest of the Country,Ž by Craig Pittman. St. Martins Press. 336 pages. Hard-cover, $26.99. Already a New York Times bestseller, this book belongs in every Florida home. No, its not a hurricane survival guide. Its a rambling ency-clopedia of Florida freakiness to remind us of what we have been surviving while warning others to enter at their own risk. Craig Pittman is the literary entrepreneur of whats odd „ and yet often trendsetting „ about our populous state with the seemingly endless coastline. His Oh, Florida!Ž is local color with a laugh and a blush. Mr. Pittman presents his learning, lore and laughs in 18 friendly chapters, perhaps to make us think we are stroll-ing along on a Florida golf course. Hav-ing established a central focus for each chapter, he generally stays in bounds even while addressing Florida hazards. Every now and then, though, he does need to take an extra stroke penalty. Theres something called school of beautiesŽ criticism, not very well respected, in which the critic simply oohs and aahs and quotes passages. Im tempted to go there, but then I wouldnt know how or when to stop. Read-ers will find their own favorite passages in this delightful romp. So, here are some of the themes and categories: Florida is, and has been forever, a land of hucksters. Think swampland, think Cape Coral, think rumrun-ning, think of a rainy, often overcast state that named itself the Sunshine State. Florida is a land of surface flashŽ that leads people to overlook truly interesting architecture. Why stand gaga in front of Cinderellas Castle when you can find 10 Frank Lloyd Wright buildings on the Lakeland cam-pus of Florida Southern College? Florida is the land of mermaids and manatees, alligators and armadillos. Thats enough freakiness for one state. But we have more. Florida is the land of hurricanes, sinkholes and beachfronts that appear and disappear. Its the land dotted with Bobs Barricades „ a huge business that defines a state whose roads seem to be under construction or repair incredibly often. Florida has an extraordinary proportion of elderly drivers, and the consequenc-es of that demography are not funny. Its one more natural disaster, but in serial form. (More on such problems in the Gods Waiting RoomŽ chapter.) Its a land of major sports teams, a major university system and major sporting events. It has the nations most phallic Capitol Building. It has colossal political scandals at all levels of government. You can imagine how Mr. Pittman fills out his chapter on The Gunshine State.Ž Not that he ignores the inter-est lavished on other weapons, such as machetes. By 2012, Florida had issued one million concealed weapon permits, more than any other state.Ž In education, Mr. Pittman enjoys pointing out follies such as the FCAT scandals and the sorrowful history of our charter schools. And theres much, much more.What I cant reproduce for you is how hilarious this book is. Much of the time, Mr. Pittman encourages us to laugh, because otherwise we would be likely to cry at the oddness that merges into madness, the eccentricity that merges into cruelty. In many ways, those of us who live in this state full of conflicting values and endlessly varied experiences are victims of one thing or another. However, we have here plenty of opportunities to enjoy what cant be remedied and to celebrate what cant be found, suffered or applauded elsewhere. At least not yet. Essentially, Mr. Pittman is a master storyteller and a research addict. Hes also an award-winning journalist and the author of three previous books. In 2013 the native Floridian wrote a popu-lar blog for Slate called Oh, Florida!Ž that became the genesis for this book and led to his appearance on TV and radio discussing why Florida is so odd and entertaining. He lives in St. Peters-burg with his wife and two children. I guarantee he will make you smile.

WEEK OF OCTOBER 6-12, 2016 A9 The Originator of Cultured Pearls. Since 1893. In August, 2014, the Latin Post, Madame Noir, and several other news sources reported that the mortgage on the home in which Dwayne Wade, and ex-wife, Shiovaughn Funches, had lived was in default. The 7800 ft. home located just outside of Chicago was transferred to Ms. Funches as part of the parties’ marital settlement agreement. Mr. Wade’s ex-wife also received over $25,000.00 in monthly support to assist in making the mortgage payment on the property. Both parties were named in the foreclosure suit. Battle lines were drawn over who was at fault. As is true in most divorce cases, the answer is not a simple one. The divorce agreement made Ms. Funches responsible for paying the mortgage; however, the parties had acquired the mortgage during their marriage, thus prior to the divorce. Which contract therefore was more important? From a practical standpoint, the terms of the mortgage trump the terms of the settlement agreement. Because Mr. Wade and Ms. Funches were still on the joint obligation of the property after the divorce, the mortgage company can and did sue them both. This, as they say, is where the rubber meets the road. In divorce court, Ms. Funches is responsible, solely, for payment of the mortgage. She was provided substantial support from Mr. Wade, part of which, was to fund this payment. Unfortunately, however, Ms. Funches choose to jeopardize the home in which she and their children lived by not making the mortgage payment. As she was well aware, Mr. Wade had an on-going legal obligation to the mortgage company to ensure the monthly payments were made even if Ms. Funches did not make them. Although Mr. Wade had the right to indemnification from Ms. Funches for her failure to pay, this is little solace in the face of a judgement for the full value of the unpaid mortgage. Ultimately, the matter was resolved but the damage was done, nonetheless. In divorce, how a settlement is structured, especially regarding jointly titled debt, is critical; it can be the difference between rebuilding after divorce and digging out of an ever deepening hole. While one hopes for the best, an experienced divorce attorney prepares for and protects against the worst.

Hudson, Hudson Family Law HOW TO AVOID A COSTLY DIVORCE MISTAKE Honor Flight to celebrate 82 veterans SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYTwenty-five World War II veterans, 56 Korean War veterans and one Vietnam War veteran are ready and waiting for Oct. 8 when they will take their Honor Flight. These veterans will be flown to Washington, D.C., for a day dedicated to honor them and to visit and reflect at the memorials built to commemorate their service and sacrifices. This Honor Flight is the fourth of four scheduled flights per year to Washington coordinated by Southeast Florida Honor Flight, based in Stuart. The trip to Washington takes local veterans on this experience of a lifetime, but probably the most important part of the day happens when they return to Palm Beach International Airport for their wel-come home. Experiencing the crowds assembled with signs, handshakes, flags and cheers is truly the highlight of the day for these veterans. Many never got a thank you for their service, much less a reception like the public gives to them at Operation Homecoming. On the Oct. 8 flight, Southeast Florida Honor Flight will honor veterans rep-resenting branches of the military in these numbers: 10 Marines, 12 Air Force, 34 Army, 25 Navy and one Coast Guard. The oldest is WWII veteran John Acaro of Hobe Sound at 99 years old and the youngest veteran is 68, Vietnam veteran Daniel Mayer of Riverview. According to their biographies, these particular heroes served as infantrymen, radio operators, riflemen, Green Berets, pilots, co-pilots, medics, mechanics and doctors in MASH units. These veterans served in Japan, Italy, France, Belgium, Germany, New Zealand, New Guinea, Australia, The Philippines, Korea, Viet-nam and stateside. During their service, they experienced combat at the Battle of the Bulge, the Normandy invasion, Leyte invasion, Battles of Okinawa and Guadal-canal, Battles of Milne and Manila Bay, Battle of Biak Island, Rhineland, Battle of Munda, Battle of the Hook, Battles of Bunker Hill, Reno and Vegas, Inchon, Chosin Resevoir and the Battle of Khe Sanh. These men are recipients of many Purple Hearts, Bronze and Silver Stars, and two have received Distinguished Fly-ing Crosses. Oct. 8s Honor Flight will begin before the crack of dawn with 82 veterans and 82 guardians arriving at Palm Beach Inter-national Airport about 4:30 a.m. to get checked in and then board a chartered American Airlines Airbus A320. The plane arrives at Reagan National to a wel-coming concourse of citizens extending gratitude to the arriving veterans. With a police escort throughout the day, four motor coaches will transport the group to visit the Marine Corps War Memorial (Iwo Jima), Arlington National Cemetery for the Changing of the Guard Ceremony, the National World War II Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The flight is scheduled to return to West Palm Beach at 8:20 p.m., when Operation Homecoming begins. The pro-cession of veterans is welcomed home by hundreds of people, including mem-bers of the community and civic groups, military, family and friends. Everyone is invited to attend the welcome cel-ebration. The Operation Welcome Home event gathers at Palm Beach Interna-tional Airport, Level 2, Concourse A/B. Early arrival is recommended. For more information on Operation Homecoming, please call (855) FLYAVET. The next Honor Flight after Oct. 8 will be Saturday, April 8. Q

And, as the complex realities of raising and focusing on our family intensified over the past year, it became clear that the massive under-taking that awaited us in the impending creation of the new theater was going to make it near impossible for us to put the necessary level of care and attention where we really needed it: on our family. New goals and outlooks for our home life have shifted our perspective on things. And so, we have made the very difficult decision to halt the progress of The Station Theatre and lower the curtain on The Naked Stage.Ž The couple worked repeatedly for two decades in almost every major venue in the area, including GableStage, Florida Stage, Mosaic Theatre, Maltz Jupiter Theatre, Palm Beach Dramaworks and Actors Playhouse where they met dur-ing The Sound of Music.Ž While they often worked apart, they also teamed up, most recently in an acclaimed double-act in the challeng-ing ConstellationsŽ at GableStage last November in which a couple recreates infinite versions of their evolving rela-tionship. They and Naked Stage were frequent nominees and recipients of awards. But they may be best remembered, besides their performances, for creat-ing the local 24-Hour Theatre Project. In 2008, they joined with three other theaters to produce an all-volunteer fundraiser that echoed similar programs around the country. About 10 playwrights „ sometimes actors and directors not known for their writing chops „ gathered after sunset to a host theater and were given absurd titles. Then they retreated overnight to pen 10-minute plays. The next morning, volunteering directors, actors and crews were chosen at random to rehearse and mount the works. By early evening, 24 hours after the process started, the plays were performed for a paying audience. The results were often (but not always) funny and promising; some went on to be used in City Theatres Summer Shorts. But the real accomplishment was how the event coalesced the some-times divisive elements of the local the-atrical community and forged a sense of unity that lasted throughout the year. Eventually, Naked Stage became the sole producer of the annual event. It also repeated the project to offset medi-cal bills for a critically ill colleague, Dana Castellanos, in 2014. The couples popularity among their peers was evidenced by the scores and scores of colleagues from every aspect of theater who volunteered their time, resources and stages for the marathon effort. Mr. Amadeo is well-known as an incisive observer of the arts scenes strengths and weaknesses. For a ques-tion-and-answer feature in Florida The-ater On Stage in 2012, he was asked why South Florida theater doesnt have a higher profile nationally. He wrote, We barely have a profile here in South Florida. How can we expect to have a high profile anywhere else? We live in a community that has no tradition for supporting theater, so there isnt a core, community-wide audi-ence of patrons that travels to all the regional theaters. Each theatre must rely on whatever small but loyal following it cultivates.ƒ Theres a lot of quality work here, but few people know it exists as a legitimate theater region.Ž There is no local government support and zero local broadcast coverage. There is no major relationship with any tourism information organization, so people coming in from out of town are not being introduced to usƒ. There is also very little effort made to cultivate new audiences and artists through local schools; many of which have great the-ater programs filled with students who are unaware that there is a local the-ater community to support and engage. Upon graduation, the students leave town without ever considering a return home to be a viable option. Consequent-ly, they never spread the message that there is great theater in South Florida because they dont know it themselves.Ž But the couples love for the region and its artists never dimmed. In their email, they wrote, This development is bittersweet, for sure. Saying goodbye to the South Florida theatre community, which has meant so much to us for so many years, is truly difficult. But we are looking forward to this exciting new chapter in our lives.Ž Q NAKEDFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOKatherine and Antonio Amadeo star in GableStage’s production of “Constellations.” “Our lives, however, are not made up of merely our craft.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 6-12, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY learn more about her insights into recent breast cancer innovations. Dr. De La Cruz attended the University of Miami and Univer-sidad Central Del Este in the Domini-can Republic for her undergraduate edu-cation. She achieved her graduate medi-cal degree at Universidad Central Del Este and completed her residency at the University of Miami and her fellowship at the University of Penn sylv ania. Dr. De La Cruz has expertise in minimally invasive surgical breast conserva-tion and complex reconstruction tech-niques and uses her skills and knowl-edge as a member of the multidisci-plinary breast team, to create custom-tailored plans for treating and surviving breast cancer. She has an extensive background in research. Recently, her research on nipple-sparing mastecto-my was honored with the Scientific Impact Award by the American Society of Breast Surgeons, and has been widely cited by the media and in the academic community. In your opinion, how has technology advanced breast cancer treat-ment in the past 25 years? Surgically, we have made tremendous advances. We now understand so much more about the tumor biology, and that more radical surgery doesnt necessar-ily mean an improved survival. The NSABP-04 and NSABP-06 trials looked at radical mastectomy versus simple mastectomy as well as breast conserva-tion surgery versus simple mastectomy. The results of these trials showed no difference in long-term survival. This has allowed us to offer our patients with early stage breast cancer the option of sparing their breast. In the last five to seven years we have begun doing nipple-sparing mastectomy. While not all patients are candidates, in the appro-priate cases this procedure is oncologi-cally safe. Axillary surgery has also changed with the advent of the sentinelŽ lymph node biopsy, which samples the lymph nodes in the axilla instead of having patients undergo a more radical proce-dure, called axillary lymph node dissec-tion. Also the Z0011 trial demonstrated that not all patients with positive lymph nodes after sentinel lymph node biopsy had to have an axillary node dissection. Lastly, the current research on immunomodulators and targeted therapies continues to be very promising. A great example is the anti-HER2 targeted therapies that have allowed patients with HER2 positive breast cancer great benefit, including improved long-term outcomes. I believe this is the future of oncologic medicine and breast cancer treatment. Have there been advancements in radiation technology? The radiation planning of today is much more accurate than 25 years ago, sparing the side effects to the lung and heart as well as the skin with better technology available today. Electron beam IntraOperative Radiation Therapy (e-IORT) for early stage breast cancer is an example of one of those advance-ments. With e-IORT, we are able to deliver a single, concentrated dose of radiation in a single treatment session in the operating room right after the cancer is removed. This helps reduce side effects, preserves more healthy tissues and can eliminate the need for weeks of outpatient radiation treatments follow-ing surgery. How has detection technology developed in recent years? The imaging technology we use such as mammogram, ultrasound and MRI have all evolved greatly. The quality of the pictures today is significantly bet-ter than it was back when the imaging technology was first used. We now have 3D tomosynthesis, which is better for dense breasts. It can also detect breast cancer earlier and reduce the amount of patients who require repeat imaging after their initial mammography. What tools do we now have for prevention? As far as prevention, we have always known about the impact lifestyle has on our body. However, I feel people are now more aware of the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. This can include things like being physically active, limiting alco-hol consumption, controlling your weight and not smoking. Can you explain the significance of detection of the BRCA mutation? BRCA1 and BRCA2 are inherited gene mutations that increase the risk of female breast and ovarian cancers. We now understand there is a 5 per-cent genetic predisposition to breast or ovarian cancer if an individual has the BRCA mutation, and there is genetic panel testing readily available to those patients who meet the criteria. This advancement has allowed us to counsel patients about their lifetime risk and educate them on what they can do to prevent breast and ovarian cancer. How has the increase in breast cancer specialists affected the treat-ment of patients? Today we have more specialist providers with fellowship training in breast cancer treatment. The idea that patients are all unique and that treatment plan-ning is patient-specific is part of what we learn in fellowship. We now under-stand the importance of not only curing breast cancer with our treatments, but also the importance of providing our patients with the appropriate guidance and follow up necessary to live a full life after their diagnosis. I believe this is what makes our specialty so special. How do you think our societal and psychological approaches to breast cancer have changed over time? There is a lot more awareness and openness about speaking about breast cancer among patients. I think maybe 25 years ago we would not had an actress on the cover of Time magazine speak-ing about her double mastectomy or a news anchor speaking about her cancer diagnosis on live television. What levels of patient support are now available that did not exist 25 years ago? Treating cancer involves more than surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatment. Supporting and healing the entire body, mind and spirit is an impor-tant part of the recovery process. Jupi-ter Medical Center offers comprehen-sive support services for breast cancer patients. We have a patient navigator who acts as a guide for patients through their health care journey, a support group, nutrition counseling, specialized oncology rehabilitation, psychosocial support and even pastoral care.

Breast Cancer Treatment at Jupiter Medical Center Requires One Day at a Time. Breast cancer facts and figuresQ About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12 percent) will develop invasive breast can-cer over the course of her lifetime.Q Breast cancer incidence rates in the U.S. began decreasing in the year 2000, after increasing for the previous two decades. They dropped by 7 percent from 2002 to 2003 alone. One theory is that this decrease was partially because of the reduced use of hormone replacement ther-apy by women after the results of a large study called the Women s Health Initiative were published in 2002. These results suggested a connection between HRT and increased breast cancer risk.Q About 40,450 women in the U.S. are expected to die in 2016 from breast cancer, though death rates have been decreasing since 1989. Women under 50 have expe-rienced larger decreases. These decreas-es are thought to be the result of treat-ment advances, earlier detection through screening, and increased awareness.Q For women in the U.S., breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer.Q Besides skin cancer, breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. In 2015, it's esti-mated that just under 30 percent of newly diagnosed cancers in women will be breast cancers.Q In women under 45, breast cancer is more common in African-American women than white women. Overall, Afri-can-American women are more likely to die of breast cancer. For Asian, Hispanic, and Native-American women, the risk of developing and dying from breast cancer is lower.Q In 2016, there are more than 2.8 million women with a history of breast cancer in the U.S. This includes women currently being treated and women who have fin-ished treatment.Q A womans risk of breast cancer nearly doubles if she has a first-degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Less than 15% of women who get breast cancer have a family member diagnosed with it.Q About 85 percent of breast cancers occur in women who have no family histo-ry of breast cancer. These occur because of genetic mutations that happen as a result of the aging process and life in general, rather than inherited mutations.Q The most significant risk factors for breast cancer are gender (being a woman) and age (growing older). Q Study links two genes to breast cancer survival INSTITUTE OF CANCER RESEARCH Testing for the activity of two genes could pick out women who are at increased risk of dying from their breast cancers, suggests a new study of almost 2,000 patients. Women whose tumors had a specific pattern of activity in the two genes were three times as likely to die within 10 years as others with a different pattern of activity. Scientists at The Institute of Cancer Research, London, spotted the pattern of gene activity among breast cancer cells with a particular ability to escape from the glue that normally holds them in place. They believe the genes could play a key role in releasing cells from this glue „ known as the extracellular matrix „ so they can spread round the body. The research, funded by The Institute of Cancer Research and Breast Cancer Now, could be used to develop tests for aggressive breast cancers, or even to identify new targets for cancer treat-ment. The study, published in the journal Oncotarget, looked at breast cancer cells that were positive for the protein HER2 „ the target for the drug Her-ceptin, which is found in around 20 percent of tumors. The ICR researchers developed a new image-based screening technique in order to identify cancer cells that didnt stick to the protein laminin „ which helps build scaffolding around cells to glue them together. They found that these cells tended to have high activity in a gene called F12 and low activity in another called STC2. When the researchers analyzed the same genes among 1,964 breast cancers, they found that this pattern of activity was strongly linked to survival. Women whose tumors had high F12 activity and low STC2 activity had a 32 percent chance of dying within 10 years, whereas those with low F12 activity and high STC2 activity had only a 10 percent chance of dying. More research is needed to establish how these genes could interfere with the extracellular matrix and help cancer cells grow and spread. Survival rates for breast cancer are now much higher than they were a few decades ago, but the disease remains deadly once it has spread round the body,Ž said Dr. Paul Huang, leader of the protein networks team at the Institute of Cancer Research. Our study sheds light on how cancer cells unstick themselves from healthy tissue, and it could help pick out women at high risk of their cancer spreading and becoming fatal.Ž Prof. Paul Workman, chief executive of The Institute of Cancer, said, We found that the activity of two genes which may help control how tightly cells are glued together is linked to breast cancer survival. If the results are confirmed in larger studies, it could give us a new way of assessing womens sur-vival chances in the clinic, and adjusting treatment accordingly.Ž We have seen major strides in the treatment of breast cancer, but once it begins to spread round the body it is still often fatal,Ž Mr. Workman said. This new study helps us understand some of the processes that control how breast cancers spread, and identifies a pattern of genetic activity that could be used to pick out women particularly at risk.Ž Q MONTH BREAST CANCER M M M M M M M M M M O O O O O O O O O O N N N N N N N N N N N N N N N N N N N N N N N N N N N N N N T T T T T T T T T T T T T T T T H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H H B BR BR B BR BR BR BR B BR BR R R BR BR R EA EA EA EA A E E EA A E EA E E E ST ST S ST T S S ST S ST S ST T S T T C C C C C C C C C C C C A AN AN N N AN N AN N A AN N A AN N A AN N AN N CE CE E E E E C C C C C CE C C E CE C CE CE E E E C CE R R R R R R R R R R R R R R AWARENESS

But you wouldn t know that given the foot-dragging of the fed-eral government, which has turned the protection of lives and property into a protracted multi-decade project.In short, the federal government has been the major disruptor of the hydrol-ogy, storage and historic flow patterns in South Florida. I submit that it is time to renegotiate the state of Floridas agreements with the federal government concerning the Flood Control Project. What about the restoration of those ecological systems that were effectively destroyed by the federal government? The restoration of the Kissimmee River was a state initiative „ originally resisted by the federal government. Today, it is recognized as one of the best examples of environmental restora-tion in the world. However, Everglades restoration has been largely a federal initiative. We are 20-plus years into this effort with no clear vision or blueprint as to what would define successful Everglades res-toration. The most definitive statement is We want to get the water right.Ž But what does that mean? What is the vision and objective of Everglades resto-ration? We have a compilation of original Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Project projects, we have added-on proj-ects, we have emerging projects, but at the end of this multi-multibillion dollar effort, does anyone think future genera-tions will look back and say, Boy, they got that right!Ž We certainly could not run our military, our economy, our educational, legal and justice systems „ indeed our very democracy „ with such a disjointed approach. Finally, regrettably, our biggest water management problem and threat is not environmental restoration but rather cli-mate change and sea level rise. These concepts are unmentionable in the current state administration. Nor can we wait on the abysmal record of plan-ning and funding demonstrated repeat-edly by the federal government. We must prepare now for the devastating effects of saltwater intrusion into our well fields, destructive and prolonged flooding, the potential diminishment of our agricultural sector and the impacts to coastal properties. We desperately need a comprehensive statewide plan for addressing the impacts of sea level rise. Florida is, after all, ground zero. Leadership must come from future state administrations com-bined with a new mind-set and approach. This is why I am calling for a new era in Florida water management. Hopefully our next governor and future legislatures will make it happen. Q „ Woody Wodraska, of Jupiter, is a 45-year veteran of the water industry.

Treat-ment for this disease has evolved tre-mendously over the last decade, with the death rate falling by 35 percent. Given my famil ys history, it is truly a privilege to work at a hospital with a Comprehensive Stroke Center, and it is inspiring to hear about the countless lives saved thanks to our phenomenal stroke team. It is also heartwarming to see patients regain their independence at the Rehabilitation Insti-tute at St. Marys Medical Center. In honor of Oct. 29 as World Stroke Day, I would like to share some infor-mation about stroke rehabilitation with you. Survivors often suffer physical or mental disabilities that require reha-bilitation. There is a window of time in which the body will gain the most from rehabilitation therapy, and our team works to use that time to the fullest. Some of the disabilities that may result from a stroke include: Q Paralysis or problems controlling movement Q Sensory disturbances including pain Q Difficulty using or understanding language Q Problems with thinking and memory Q Emotional disturbances The goal of stroke rehabilitation is to help survivors heal while relearning the skills they lost or teach them new ways of performing tasks to circumvent or compensate for the skills they lost. The Rehabilitation Institute at St. Marys Medical Center is committed to improv-ing stroke survivors quality of life. We are accredited for our comprehensive rehabilitation, stroke and brain injury programs by the Commission on Accred-itation of Rehabilitation Facilities. Our interdisciplinary team of physiatrists, rehabilitation nurses, physical, occupational and speech therapists, therapeutic recreation specialists, neu-ropsychologists, case managers, nutri-tionists and pharmacists work together to personalize rehabilitation plans so that stroke survivors may be as inde-pendent and productive as possible. The team meets weekly to discuss patients progress toward goals, treatment plans and appropriate discharge planning. Rehabilitation therapies include: Q Physical therapy to restore movement, balance and coordination Q Occupational therapy to relearn basic skills such as bathing and dressing Q Speech therapy to relearn language skills and help with swallowing problemsWith three of my family members having experienced strokes, I saw firsthand how the disease not only affects the patient but their loved ones as well. Fami-ly and friends play a vital role in the reha-bilitation process and are encouraged to observe and participate in therapy to learn how to assist with care. The goal is to help your loved one maintain the high-est level of independence possible.The inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation programs at St. Marys have assessment and treatment activities that focus on functional skills, education and support services to help optimize inde-pendence. These activities are struc-tured to meet patients individualized needs and goals. Through the inpatient program, patients complete therapy at least three hours per day, five to seven days per week. On World Stroke Day, I invite you to celebrate the lives and memories of those that have been affected by this disease. Although our Comprehensive Stroke Center and rehabilitation teams have earned prestigious distinctions as a result of their tireless efforts, our top priority is helping our patients regain the highest level of function possible following a stroke. If you or a loved one require personalized rehabilita-tion services and would like to know more about our Rehabilitation Insti-tute, please visit Q gabrielle FINLEY-HAZLE CEO, St. Marys Medical Center

A celebration of nuptials involves a lot of planning, and deciding on the menu, picking the flowers and select-ing the shutterbug who will capture the moment all play a big part. Many more decisions must be made, though, in the months and weeks lead-ing up to that special day. Gifts for the bridesmaids and groomsmen, table arrangements, what kind of music to offer „ a deejay or a live band „ and seemingly countless other details can leave families feeling frantic. Enter The Gardens Mall. We thought it was really important to provide a way that a bride and groom could get a comprehensive resource guide for planning, to the day of, to the honeymoon,Ž said Michele Jacobs, the malls corporate director of marketing and operations. The His and Hers Wedding Expo will debut Oct. 8 on the lower level, featuring dozens of retailers and vendors offering a wonderland of wedding wants. The Grand Court, as well as the courts at the entrances to Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue, will be dotted with booths showcasing everything couples need to tie the knot. In addition to dresses and tuxedos, hair and makeup demon-strations and samplings of sweets and treats, guests will receive an I DoŽ checklist, a 22-page Bridal Survival KitŽ and a chance to win a luxury gift basket. Were really kind of a one-stop shop,Ž Ms. Jacobs said. The stores are the stars, and I think that each of the retailers is really embracing the event and getting behind it.Ž Anthropologie will display some of its home items available for brides and grooms via a gift registry, while Godiva Chocolatier will tantalize shoppers with beautiful boxes of chocolates. Jimmy Choo will show off its spectacular shoes, and Jo Malone London will lure both men and women with its bespoke fragrance line. This is for everyone,Ž Ms. Jacobs said. It could be his-and-his weddings or hers-and-hers. That is a very impor-tant shopper of ours, and we want to provide them options.Ž Several retailers will stage in-store promotions throughout the day, as well. Swarovski, the iconic crystal-maker, not only will tout its bracelets, earrings and necklaces but also its candleholders, champagne flutes and picture frames „ all popular items for weddings. We also sell figurines, which can be used as a thank-you gift or vice versa „ something you can give the couple,Ž store manager Rebeca Gonzalez said. A lot of the things that we have, you cant beat the sparkle.Ž Employees will model some of the stores finest jewelry „ bangle brace-lets, longs earrings and choker neck-laces „ that customers are welcome to try on for size. Were a lot more than just crystal,Ž Ms. Gonzalez said. One of the main reasons why we agreed to participate was we thought it was a great opportu-nity to expose our brand. Its going to be fun. Im really excited.Ž At the Macys booth, an elegant backdrop will set the mood for the intended as models in dresses and tuxedos cir-culate around the Grand Court. The signature stores comprehensive assort-ment of wedding gifts also will be pro-moted, and anyone who signs up for the registry that day will be entered into a drawing for a two-night stay at a Mar-riott hotel. David McAlister, one of the managers, said kitchen appliances, housewares and fine china are among the registrys more-popular items. Although some millennials dont go for fine china,Ž Mr. McAlister added. They might go for four-piece place settings.Ž Regional employees and wedding consultants from several of the compa-nys South Florida stores plan to attend the event. There will be five or six people at the table alone,Ž Mr. McAlister said. Its a big event for us.

A20 BUSINESS WEEK OF OCTOBER 6-12, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY MOVING ON UPBy any measure, Liv Vesle ys first year and a half as president of the Jupi-ter Medical Center Foundation has been remarkable. Were approaching $42 million this year and thats quite exceptional,Ž Ms. Vesley said of the foundations fund-raising efforts. Im really proud of that. I have a great team, some here a long time, some that I recruited.Ž About a year ago, the foundation launched a $300 million campaign to provide support to the goals outlined in the hospitals strategic plan for the growth during the next eight to 10 years. Money raised will support continued focus on procuring the latest medi-cal technology, implementing cutting-edge medical procedures and attracting world-class talent to the hospital. In September, the foundation received its largest donation ever „ a $25 million gift from an unnamed donor. We believe this incredible gift is the first of several transformational gifts to the foundations new campaign,Ž Ms. Vesely said. That money, coupled with a $5 million pledge from Peter and Missy Crisp, will go toward the $50 million cost of a new Comprehensive Cancer Institute. We are now challenging the community to help us raise the remain-ing $20 million to build the Comprehen-sive Cancer Institute.Ž Before moving to Florida, Ms. Vesley was deputy chief development officer at Mount Sinai Health System in New York. Previously, she spent seven years as vice president of development at West-ern Connecticut Health Network. Under her leadership, Western Connecticut Health Network conducted a successful $75 million comprehen-sive campaign, exceeding its goal by 50 percent. Her prior positions included director of development at Columbia University Medical Center, where she participated in a $100 million alumni campaign, and as director of public relations and development for a unique corporate social responsibility initiative in the Dominican Republic that was recog-nized within the framework of the Unit-ed Nations Millennium goals. Ms. Vesely said her job is all about being communityand relationship-based and being intuitive. I love meeting people and hearing their stories,Ž she said. I love being strategic. I understand that donors look at a gift as an investment, so they want to know the business plan. But its not just an investment. Its about relation-ships, too.Ž Her job is a challenging one, but thats the way she likes it. Im one of those people who likes to be challenged in many ways,Ž she said. Liv VesleyAge: 47 Where I grew up: Long Island, N.Y. Where I live now: Jupiter What brought me to Florida: My role as president of the Jupiter Medical Center Foundation Education: Executive masters in public health with a concentration in healthcare management from Columbia University in New York, as well as two other graduate degrees from New York University and the University of Kent in Canterbury, England. My first job and what it taught me: My first professional jobs were in public relations, which taught me the importance of good communication. A career highlight: I am always proud when we reach our fundraising goals and see the impact philanthro-py can have on providing world-class healthcare and research to our commu-nities and nation. What I do when Im not working: Marathons and triathlons. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: Get nonprofit experience; learn how to communicate well (verbally and written) and under-stand strategic planning in business. About mentors: My mentor is a gentleman who started an NGO called the Dominican Institute for Integral Development in the Dominican Repub-lic over 30 years ago that focuses on sustainable development (clean water, poverty, microenterprise). He taught be the most important things in life are integrity and transparency.

MONEY & INVESTINGWhat’s going to happen to Saudi Arabia in this oil market?One of my favorite shows as a kid was The A-Team.Ž Each episode, Hannibal would come up with an awesome plan to defeat the bad guys that involved creating a tank and a helicopter out of some scrap metal, a pair of pliers and three cotton balls. And of course, the plan always worked. But in the real world, even the best-laid plans dont work out the way you plan. Saudi Arabia finally realized this last week as it capitu-lated on its grandiose plan to dominate the oil market. So why did its plan fail and what is the future of oil prices?A few years ago, Saudi Arabia became concerned about its slipping market share of the oil market. The shale boom here in the U.S. all but eliminated our reliance on Middle Eastern oil. Russia and other countries also were increasing their pro-duction. So in a bold gambit, despite oil prices above $100 per barrel, Saudi Ara-bia decided to flood the market with oil. It did this for two main reasons. First, Saudi Arabia wanted to regain all the market share it had lost. The country wanted to increase its sales to China and other growing emerging markets. Second, Saudi Arabia wanted to drive higher-cost producers out of business, especially the shale oil producers here in the U.S. The Saudis knew that by increasing their production, oil prices would fall and that higher-cost producers would not be able to stay in business. But unfortunately, things did not go exactly as planned for Saudi Arabia. Oil prices did collapse as a result of the countrys plans, as expected. This has resulted in low gas and energy prices here in the U.S. But it also resulted in massive budget deficits in Saudi Arabia where the country was used to huge surpluses due to its oil revenues. The country was forced to cut ser-vices and subsidies to its population as well as salaries for government workers. And at the same time Saudi Arabia was increasing its production, sanctions in Iran were lifted, which resulted in a dramatic increase in production in its main rival. And while some energy companies in the U.S. were forced to declare bank-ruptcy and many exploration projects were canceled, the energy complex was much more resilient than Saudi Ara-bia anticipated. Companies cut costs, became more efficient, and continued to pump even as prices plummeted to under $30 per barrel. So after two years of executing its failed plan for world oil domination, last week Saudi Arabia decided to reverse its strategy. It announced that it would work with other OPEC members to begin curtail-ing production in order to drive prices higher. But many analysts question whether Saudi Arabia can truly accomplish this goal. First, many members of OPEC, most notably Iran, will continue to ramp up production no matter what Saudi Arabia does. Secondly, other non-OPEC countries like Russia and shale producers in the U.S. will certainly increase their pro-duction once prices start to rise. And finally, with the global economy not showing strong signs of growth, oil demand is not expected to be robust in the years ahead. So after this two-year-long experiment, Saudi Arabia may end up with the worst of both worlds „ low oil prices and low market share. U.S. consumers will be a huge winner in this scenario as we will be able to enjoy low energy prices for years to come. But how will Saudi Arabia fare? Will the ruling elite be able to keep power without the lavish subsidies and payouts that its population expects? Or will OPEC and non-OPEC producers really bond together and slash output to boost prices? Will it even make a dif-ference in the years to come as more people turn to electric cars and solar energy? The next OPEC policy meeting is in November, when we hopefully get the first answers to these pressing questions.

Cristina Condon | 561.301.2211 BEHIND THE WHEELNissan Leaf: The practicality of an electric soulHow does a car that comes with priority parking, $3 per fill-up and a built-in government rebate sound? The idea of an electric car can be pretty appealing before even the first mile is driven. But what about when reality sets in? Can you adapt to the plug-in lifestyle? T hats why we put one of best-selling electric vehicles through an everyday workout. The Nissan Leaf is the car that really brought fully electric driving to the masses. Its no longer the newest car on the market, or the one with the farthest range, but the affordability and usability of this hatchback holds it as the Model T of EV benchmarking. One of the biggest reasons for the Leafs appeal is how it fits into everyday life. If it were not for the Zero Emis-sionsŽ badges on the doors, it could blend in with every other car on the road. And thats important for a car that wants to be taken seriously. Inside is a similar story.The base model can be driven off a Nissan lot today for around $30,000 (not including its eligible $7,500 federal tax credit). It comes nicely equipped with features including automatic cli-mate control, power windows, rearview camera, a Bluetooth stereo and heated seats (its more energy efficient to heat each individual seat than the whole car). Higher trim levels can be equipped with a navigation system thats par-ticularly helpful because it will calcu-late if a destination is within range as well as find plug-in stations nearby. And because charging points are often reserved parking at shopping centers and office buildings, this car is like an automatic ticket to VIP parking. Every Leaf has an 80-kilowatt electric motor that is whisper quiet as long as the air conditioning and radio are not running. Its rated at 107 hp, which might seem a little low in a world where the Nissan Altima sedan comes with 180 hp as standard, but electric cars operate differently. They offer significantly more torque, and it is all instantly available. So where a standard car has to build to its peak power, an EV like the Leaf feels pretty nippy at urban speed limits. On the highway, the Leaf feels just as solid and secure as any other compact hatchback, even though its not really built for this duty. For example, a nearly full charge of 84 miles feels like a lot of range. But turn on the air conditioner, and the distance reduces to around 75 miles. Get on the interstate, and the high speed/high power usage situation mixed with fewer coasting opportuni-ties to regenerate power cuts the range to below 70 miles. Theres a lot of useful time left in the Leaf, but it does mean Alligator Alley is off the road trip list. It takes an upgrade to the higher trim levels (they start around $35K) to extend the range to 107 miles. Comparatively, the Chevrolet Bolt is rated for more than double the distance. But that might not be the whole story.EVs are still trying to get over range anxiety.Ž This is where drivers are wor-ried that they wont be able to make it to a destination and/or return home on the available power of an electric car. Manu-facturers are touting their electric range, but it is important to remember that its not just how far an EV can go, but also how quickly it can refuel. After all, it will be tough to utilize the ever-increasing reach of an EV if it cannot be completely refreshed overnight. Thus, its important to know how an EV is going to be utilized before being lured in by hundreds of miles in range. The Nissan Leaf works best for the urban commuter who has stop-and-go traffic on a 30-mile drive to work. Its also a good one for the retiree who loves to pop down to the shops and takes pride in front-row parking.Notice how we have not yet brought up the EVs benefit of reducing the environmental impact of driving. Thats because when an EV can find a practical role, green motoring is just a bonus. Q myles

Norton raises questions of race in ‘Question Bridge’ BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@” oridaweekly.comThe Norton Museum of Art will shine a light on questions of race, when Question Bridge: Black MalesŽ opens Oct. 18. This transmedia art projectŽ is designed to provide a platform for an authentic exchange about life in America for black men.Ž Today the work is collaborative, but that wasn t by design. The installation seemed to inspire its own evolution. In 1996, Chris Johnson wanted to start a conversation about race, class and age differences in San Diegos African-Ameri-can community. He made videos of 10 men who both asked and answered questions about their lives. The men never met in person because, Mr. Johnson believed, video-taping reduced the stress of face-to-face conversations and made the men more comfortable expressing their private views and feelings. What he got was authenticity that rang true to others who saw it. A decade later, in 2006, Hank Willis Thomas asked Mr. Johnson about doing a similar project. Instead, the men decided to collaborate with artists Kamal Sinclair and Bayet Ross Smith who from 2008 to 2011 recorded more than 1,600 question-and-answer videos from more than 160 men in nine American cities. The team edited the content theyd collected and, in 2012, the project was released as a documentary at the Sundance Film Festival Today, its a five-screen video installation that has been exhibited at more than 30 events, museums and institutions. The project also includes an interactive website and mobile app to engage the young adults of the social media generation. Actor Jesse Williams one of the projects executive producers, described Ques-tion BridgeŽ as an attempt to redefine the narrative surrounding the countrys most opaque and feared demographic.Ž In conjunction with the show, the Norton will present educational programs, including lectures, a Book + Art discussion and tour and a Blueprint Roundtable,Ž a program designed by project organizers to involve the local community. The museum also announced nominees for the international Rudin Prize for Emerging Photographers „ an award of $20,000 thats given every two years to an emerging photographer on the leading edge of his or her field, but who has not yet had a solo museum exhibition. The nominees are: Clare Benson (American, born 1985), who practices photography and interdisci-plinary work in video, sculpture and writing. She was nominated by Finnish-American photographer Arno Minkkinen Elizabeth Bick (American, born 1980), who is known for mixing performance art, choreography and documentary photogra-phy. She was nominated by Iranian photog-rapher Shirin Neshat Alexandra Hunts (Ukrainian, born 1990), who is recognized for abstract digital and analog photography. She was nominated by Dutch photographer Rineke Dijkstra Wesley Stringer (American, born 1985), who works in photography and crafts hand-made books. She was nominated by English photographer Michael Kenna The Norton is at 1451 S. Olive Ave., West Palm Beach. Free admission.

U .S. 1, Fort Pierce; (772) 4603131 or $36 The Skinny: This piece of early 20th century cranberry glass is glorious, from the ruby glow of the glass to the hand-cut edges and sides Bohemian craftsmen no doubt spent hours buffing and polishing. I ts a good size „ nearly 10 inches long „ and makes a nice statement piece in my collection, not that I need any more statement pieces. The beveled edges of the underplate do have a nick or two, but thats to be expected with those sharp edges. Also a great find: The Unique Antique Shop, one of the nicest antiques malls I have visited in quite some time. Ill be back. Q „ Scott Simmons THE FIND: Over a half-century of collecting, my mom has had two passions. The first was cranberry glass. Second came antique dolls. But lets go back to that cranberry glass. Around the time my mom was growing up, say, the 1940s and 50s, Fenton Art Glass Co. of Williamstown, W.Va., began turning out millions of pieces of glass that resembled the Victorian art glass of decades before. Among the most popular of the Fenton lines was its cranberry glass, particularly in the bumpy opalescent hobnail that reminded collectors like my mom of pieces their grandmothers had owned. My great-grandmother had a gorgeous Hobbs, Brockunier and Co. bowl that my mom now owns, so maybe that piece inspired my mom to collect more. That led to us searching for opalescent cranberry hobnail, or hobnail with an outer coating of white iridescent glass that made the hobs stand out. It was pretty stuff, and Fenton had a second heyday with the line in the 1960s and 70s. My mom did too, buying lamps, vases, bowls and other objects at shops and shows across the country. Sometimes, you only want more, and sometimes, well, you get bored. My mom has begun to grow tired of some of the more common pieces in her collection „ those 1970s pieces that seemingly pop up everywhere now that women of her generation are beginning to downsize. Meanwhile, her doll collection continues to grow. But one never grows weary of the older pieces of cranberry glass, like a butter or cheese dome I recently found in Fort Pierce. Its Bohemian glass, made in Czechoslovakia during the early 20th century. Every aspect of this piece is handwrought, from the wheel polishing of its sides and bottom to the beveled and cut edge of the underplate. Glassblowers use gold salts, or colloidal gold, to create cranberry glass, so it doesnt surprise me that these pieces set a gold standard of sorts for collecting, regardless of provenance. When I see this piece, I think of all the years we traveled the state seeking pieces of cranberry glass. Im glad I can call this one mine. Q Cranberry glass dome SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYCranberry glass dome was made in central Europe sometime early in the 20th century.

But more telling, says producing artistic director and co-founder William Hayes, they all are about lonely people fighting to make human connections, something that resonates with our mod-ern world where people seem increas-ingly separated. My wife points out that I often pick a season consciously with a common theme in mind,Ž he said, but I think this season there was a subconscious level, a common thread, and it had to do with human beings who are isolated and who have an inherent need for physical and emotional contact.Ž It has to do with w hats going on in society. We can start with our phones and Facebook. We believe we are more con-nected as a society through technology, but actually were becoming more and more isolated,Ž he said. As a nation we are becoming nationalist and isolation-ist and in our private lives we avoid interpersonal contact face to face, and the joys and benefits that come from that. These (characters) are all isolated people who are living independently with no physical and emotional contact, but aredesperately hungry for it.Ž He hopes the stories will start a conversation about the hope of a more fulfilled life despite the risks.Ž Putting together an artistically and commercially successful season has been a key issue for the theater at the east end of Clematis Street in West Palm Beach that has carved out a niche devot-ed to theater that makes you think.Ž Mr. Hayes used the crafting of the coming season to illustrate how theres the artistic side, theres the business side.Ž The Night of the IguanaŽ (Oct. 14-Nov. 13), from 1961, is a kind of transi-tion play from the Williams who wrote A Streetcar Named DesireŽ and the playwright who began exploring more surreal subject matter. It pulls together a collection of disparate characters at a rundown fourth-rate Mexican coastal resort including a defrocked priest on the run, a spinster, her elderly poet grandfather and a slatternly hotel owner. Directed by Mr. Hayes, it is the most obviously focused play about lonely and disconnected people. The cast includes Tim Altmeyer (My Old LadyŽ) and veteran Florida hands Kim Cozort, Dennis Creaghan and Irene Adjan. Mr. Hayes thought process about choosing a season: The first show is about familiarity because I want to attract as many people as possible say-ing Oh, I havent seen that in years, so I have a chance from the business side of converting these people to subscribers.Ž I always start the season with a classic play with title recognition but shows that I dont consider overdone,Ž he said. I look at the body of work of Tennessee Williams. Certainly The Glass Menag-erie is a great play, but its being done on every street corner. But Iguana is an extremely challenging piece to do and that what I want is to challenge myself and the actors as artists. The more we climb toward the top of Mount Ever-est, the better. But theres a lot of fear and anxiety in taking on ambitious works.Ž TruŽ (Dec. 2-Jan. 1) is a one-man drama suffused with a great deal of wry humor by Jay Presson Allen and starring Rob Donohoe (Buried ChildŽ) as the famed writer wrestling with demons the week before Christmas. It will be directed by Lynnette Barkley (Les Liaisons DangereusesŽ). The second show takes place in the Christmas season, so Im looking for something that has a wider appeal; it often will have humor in it,Ž Mr. Hayes said. We know people may bring their families, so it might be a love story or comedy,Ž citing My Old Lady, with Estelle Parsons. He also mentioned that he knew he was going to cast Drama-works mainstay Donohoe because he would not undertake such a play with-out knowing firmly that he had some-one on board who could do it „ some-thing he has failed to do a few times and remarked, Lesson learned.Ž Collected StoriesŽ (Feb. 3-March 5) by Donald Margulies (Dinner With FriendsŽ) is a popular two-hander about a legendary, crusty, aging writer who only wants to be left alone but who attracts an adoring assistant-acolyte with an ulterior motive „ a literary All About Eve.Ž The script had a tri-umphant production in 2010 at Mosaic Theatre with Barbara Bradshaw and Kim Morgan Dean. It will be directed by Paul Stancato (assistant director on Long Days Journey Into NightŽ). It has a little bit more commercial value than Arcadia. Its not as dense but its a smart piece about the human connec-tion,Ž Mr. Hayes said. ArcadiaŽ (March 31-April 30) is by Tom Stoppard (The Real ThingŽ) with alternating scenes set in the same room 200 years apart as English aris-tocrats in the 1800s, and two centuries later, their descendants and academics trying to solve mysteries that occurred in the past. The script, which ques-tions the nature of commonly accept-ed truth „ even scientific truth „ is quite funny but intellectually dazzling as people in the present misinterpret what occurred in the past. Throughout, most of the characters are discovering and coping with sexual attraction. The large cast will include Margery L owe, Jim Ballard, Cliff Burgess, Dan Leon-ard and a large pet turtle, directed by J. Barry Lewis. Usually the third or fourth slot is the risk of the season and certainly Arcadia is that,Ž Mr. Hayes said. Its an intel-lectually dense work and requires the audience to do more work, but I think its one of the most accessible of Stop-pards pieces for people to wrap their brain around ... Stoppard is very calcu-lated and planned and methodical, but, of course, hes smarter than everyone else.Ž Mr. Lewis agreed. Its just extraordinary. Its full of alliterations and ideas. Stoppard is always chasing some kind of truth that is somewhat elusive,Ž he said. But the story is as much about love and the emergence of l ove, the power of loveŽ all swathed in a bemused humor about the foolishness of people. The Cripple of InishmaanŽ (May 19-June 11) is a dark comedy by Irish playwright Martin McDonagh (The Beauty Queen of LeenaneŽ), a fiction-alized account of a real-life incident in 1934 when a Hollywood movie company came to the wild Irish islands to film the famed documentary Man of AranŽ „ and the effect it had on the populace. Mr. Lewis will direct a cast that includes Elizabeth Dimon and Colin McPhillamy. That last slot has been tricky for me because its a time of year that people are leaving. We need a good transition into our summer musical,Ž Mr. Hayes said. It needs to have humor because when I have put heavier pieces in there, like Dancing at Lughnasa, which was a beautiful production, it had modest sales.Ž Mr. Lewis said, Its a great and heartfelt happy heart piece. (The Irish) write such brilliant characters that lie on a comedic world that is both disturbing and uplifting at the same time.Ž He loves the absurdist ideas like someone giving out a piece of gossip in exchange for a piece of lamb. Simply sitting and watching the play is not all the company offers. This sea-son, the educational arm of the theater has overhauled and expanded its pro-grams investigating each play on the schedule. The newly rechristened Dramawise is a series for adults who want to delve deeply into a plays ideas and to exam-ine the characters, themes, social rel-evance and viewpoints expressed by the playwright. Dramawise includes two actsŽ with an intermission, and participants may choose to attend all or a portion of the program. Act 1 (10-11:30 a.m.) begins the day with an in-depth discussion of the play and playwright led by Gary Cadwallader, director of education. Par-ticipants in Act 1 will receive a compre-hensive study guide and a copy of the script prior to class. Intermission (11:45 a.m.-12:45 p.m.) is lunch at a downtown West Palm Beach restaurant. Act 2 (1-2 p.m.) is a discussion with the plays cast, director and artistic team, providing insight into the creative process, plus a question-and-answer session. The schedule is:Thursday, Oct. 13 „ The Night of the IguanaŽ Thursday, Dec. 1 „ TruŽ Thursday, Feb. 2 „ Collected StoriesŽ Thursday, March 30 „ ArcadiaŽ Thursday, May 18 „ The Cripple of InishmaanŽ For more information about schedules and tickets, visit or call 514-4042.

Zimmermanns inaugural concert takes place at 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 16, in the parish hall of St. Andrews Episcopal Church, Lucerne Avenue and North Palmway, in Lake Worth, three blocks west of the Lake Worth Bridge. Emulating Bach and the Collegium Musicum he directed in Leipzig, Germany, Zimmermanns Caf Chamber Music will present new works and works-in-progress by Palm Beach County composers Kevin Wilt, Gregory Stepanich, Clare Shore and Marshall Turkin. The performers for the evening are South Floridians Dina Kostic, violin; Susan Moyer Bergeron, cello; and Mary Kathleen Ernst, piano. The composers will be present and engage in discussion with the audience between selections. Light food, wine and other beverages will be served. Casual attire is encour-aged. Tickets are $20, or $10 for students with ID, payable at the door. No reser-vations will be taken.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21 ) Your self-confidence gets a much-needed big boost as you start to unsnarl that knotty financial problem. Expect some help from a surprising source. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Congratulations. Any lingering negative aftereffects from that not-so-pleasant workplace situation are all but gone. Its time now to focus on the positive.

AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) As usual, youve been concerned more about the needs of others than your own. You need to take time for yourself so you can replenish all that spent energy.

Special Stay-n-Play Packages are available online. FMBPirateFest.com239-454-7500 ADD A FUN EVENT TO THIS MONTHS SCHEDULE. I was born dirt-poor in a town without traffic lights.Ž The town is Celina, Tenn., which had a population of 1,495 souls in the 2010 census, 96 percent of whom were white, with a median annual income of $19,435. And my mom was a pillbilly,Ž he adds. She sold prescription pain pills and went to jail a couple times.Ž His father s side of the family was equally Southern, without all that insanity.Ž But Mr. Crowders uncle, his fathers brother, was perhaps his biggest family influence. My uncle is gay and I always knew that,Ž he explains, so that pushed me away from the church early on. I didnt like what they were saying about homo-sexuals. I quit going at 9 or 10, so I didnt get that Southern Baptist brainwashing.Ž Mr. Crowder was 12 when he saw Chris Rocks Bigger & BlackerŽ special on HBO and decided hed like to do that someday. But first he became the first in his family to attend college, earning a bachelors degree in psychology from Tennessee Tech, followed by a masters in business administration, which led to a good job with the U.S. Dept. of Energy in Oak Ridge. It was 2009 and Mr. Crowder was 23. Six months later he stepped on stage at Sidesplitters, a Knoxville comedy club, and did six min-utes during the open mic night.Slowly a per sona emerged. He was a redneck who people kept assuming must be a racist. So, he told the crowd, he would fight fire with fire, screaming super liberal opinions in a super redneck fashion. The joke got laughs. A seed was planted.In 2015, he applied to the NBC Late Night Writers Workshop and was one of eight aspiring comics accepted from about 1,500 submissions. He spent a week in Manhattan, where one group exercise convinced him the liberal redneckŽ had a future. He imag-ined a sophisticated video series. And then serendipity struck. Back home in Knoxville, where he lives with his wife and two young sons, Mr. Crowder happened to see a preachers very amateurish right-wing YouTube video condemning transgender bath-rooms. I thought, I can just do it exactly that way,Ž he remembers. Walk into the woods with my cellphone and just do it.Ž Last April 16, Mr. Crowder just did it, uploading a YouTube rant about his state legislatures vote to have the Bible declared Tennessees official book. The video was 1 minute, 38 seconds long, during which he mocked the born again Bible boosters with profane glee. Rednecks dont read!Ž he scoffed.The video got 70,000 views on Facebook. Four weeks later he posted another, lambasting North Carolinas ban on transgender bathrooms. That one tallied 25 million.The Liberal Redneck was on a roll, and the rants kept coming. Since then, that thick redneck twang has targeted Ted Cruz, the war on drugs, phony patriotism, black lives without guns ended by white cops with guns and, of course, Donald J. Trump. The editor-in-chief of The New York Daily News became a fan, and now Mr. Crowder does a weekly video for the papers website. They told me I could curse but they were going to bleep it,Ž he says, but I guess they changed their mind because they just put up a warning now.Ž Hes been profiled on MSNBCs The Last Word With Lawrence ODonnell,Ž and Simon & Schuster has just published the WellRED comedy trios first book, The Liberal Redneck Manifesto: Draggin Dixie Out Of The Dark.Ž We try to explain how the South got to where it is and give our take on what we can do to move forward,Ž he says. At their CityPlace show, Corey Forrester will be up first, performing for 15 minutes, then Drew Morgan for 15 minutes, followed by Mr. Crowder for a half-hour of profanely liberal redneck-ism, closing with all three onstage for a Q&A with the audience. Early on, I got hecklers,Ž he says, but at this point most of the people know what theyre getting themselves into. Ive always gotten a 10-to-one posi-tive response. Nobodys buying a ticket to tell us how much they hate us.Ž Liberal? Redneck?Hes both, Trae Crowder insists. And hes not the only one. I get people saying, I wouldnt believe somebody like you exists until I saw your video,Ž he says. I tell em, theres a lot of people like me, lots of people who hate all prejudice. And it never dawns on them that prejudice against poor white Southerners is the same thing as prejudice against blacks. And these are white people! Its just ridiculous to me.Ž Q REDNECKFrom page 1 WellRED Comedy Tour, with Trae Crowder, Drew Morgan and Corey Ryan Forrester>> When: 8 p.m. Oct. 13 >> Where: Palm Beach Improv, Cityplace, 550 S.

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 6-12, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Caterer plans to open Lilly’s Table near Kelsey Theater jan There s a rebirth happening in downtown Lake Park and Rodney Briguglio wants to be a part of it. The owner of Lillys Catering & Events in West Palm Beach will be the exclusive caterer for the Kelsey Theater and will open Lillys Table in the same plaza. He also will be supplying the nearby Brewhouse Gallery with foods from his kitchen. I had been looking for a commercial kitchen to use for my catering business, and put it out on Facebook,Ž he said. His plea led him to A.J. Brockman who opened the B rewhouse Gallery in 2014 on Park Avenue, then rejuvenated the MosArt Theater, eventually buying up the whole shopping plaza. I had seen his name all over the place,Ž Mr. Briguglio said. He is trying to bring back the charm and luster of Lake Park. I met the people they rent to „ theyre all team players, and work toward one common goal. Everybody is so proud of what theyre doing. I wanted to be part of that.Ž Its a small-town atmosphere he loves, he said, growing up in the Hamp-tons. People think of the Hamptons as all one thing, but its a bunch of small towns. Everybody knows everybodys business, good or bad.Ž He (A.J. Brockman) didnt just want to rent out the commercial kitchen, but wanted a full-blown restaurant there,Ž he said. I had been looking for my own place, so I said yes.Ž Lillys Table will occupy the space that was at one time the Floribbean Grill. The name also came from a suggestion on social media. We really wanted Lillys Kitchen, but it was taken. Lilly is my niece and she named the catering company. So we asked on Facebook, and they came up with Lillys Table. I liked it „ it feels more like a family atmo-sphere.Ž The 2,100-square-foot, 40-seat restaurant will have counter ordering service, counter stools for dining or having beer or wine, and softŽ seating, he said „ some couches for lounging, along with some tables. Itll have an eclectic mix of furniture and art. Itll have LED tables that light up. The menu will be funny, kind of kitschy. Familiar dishes with a twist.Ž All will be beerand wine-friendly.For that, hes working with executive chef Orlin McClendon formerly Celine Dion s personal chef in Las Vegas and recently of Cest Si Bon Catering With my experiences at four-star resorts „ the Ritz-Carlton, The Break-ers „ were a good team,Ž Mr. Briguglio said. A server will take orders at the B rewhouse Gallery. Atypical bar foods, such as chicken and beef satay, Frito nachos served in a bag, and sliders, of course. Personal pizzas on naan, not the tra-ditional flatbreads,Ž he said, are tenta-tively on the menu. Foods you can dine in and have a beer and wine selection.Ž The daily specials might be four or five items „ we might feel like cooking a beef bourguignon, or steak au poivre, or chicken piccata. We will keep chang-ing things so it doesnt get mundane.Ž Diners can eat a full meal in, order for take-out, place an order at the B rewhouse Gallery, as well as relax and sit at the bar. Its really a lounge atmo-sphere,Ž he said. Were using local companies. Were working with Pumphouse Coffee for their coffees „ theyre relatively new in Jupiter. Its well rounded. And were going to have something like a Lillys Blend. I want to be local, and showcase the local products and help them. We all grow that way.Ž House-made desserts will also change, but possibly be featured on cer-tain days. So you know you could come in on a Thursday, say, and get the killer brownie.Ž Mr. Briguglio is hoping for a midNovember opening. Weve got a lot of work to do. Im so excited. Lake Park is really growing, and Im glad to be a big part of it. Its such a good feeling I have.ŽRalph’s Place closingA long-time diner favorite, Ralphs Place on Burns Road, will close for the last time by the end of the month. Owner Ralph Percy 85, has been working seven days a week for nearly 26 years. A few vacation days and holidays were all he took off. There comes a time in life when we have to call it a day,Ž he said. He wasnt expecting to retire quite yet, however. The buildings new own-ers severed his monthly lease at the end of September, he said. They want to go a different direction, they said.Ž New owners bought the old building in March, and staying open would require Ralphs Place to become ADA…compliant, putting in larger bathrooms and other accommodations for the dis-abled. I cant afford to do that,Ž Mr. Percy said. Reopening elsewhere is out of the question as well. Im too old.Ž His nine employees represent years of service. Ralphs has been in busi-ness for 26 years „ 16 of those were in Northwood, where he started the diner. I took over the old Albrittons drug store building at 40th and Broadway,Ž he said. The diner later moved to a building he had built on 24th Street and Spruce. Fish and grits have been on the menu since the start. We had a lot of ethnic customers who kept asking us when we were going to have fish and grits on the menu. I said never! but they finally kept persuading me and we found a recipe, and theyve been on it ever since,Ž he said. Known for servers like Bonnie Sue Fickett, who call the diners Hon,Ž and a slim menu with prices that have only gone up a nickel here, a dime there,Ž the diner is popular with older patrons as well as the neighborhood regulars: sheriff and police officers who meet for breakfast, local office and school work-ers who do take-out lunches, and the retired ladies who lunch.Ž The diner is completely filled by 12:20 each day; its open from 7 a.m. till 2:30; 1:30 on Sundays. There are only 19 tables, and nine counter stools in the dog-leg shaped space; a full-wall mirror makes it look bigger. Ceiling fans help push the air around. Green slag-glass pendant lights are the only modern touch aside from the wide-screen TV over the counter. Coastal-themed artwork filling the walls was painted by Betty Percy and its for sale. Lollipops are handed out free at the register „ even to adults. Moreso, the adults take them,Ž the owner said. Mr. Percy, an upstate New York native who came to Florida in 1965, has worked in the kitchen every Tuesday and Thurs-day „ those were my daysŽ „ for the last eight years. He bakes fresh desserts every few days from scratch. His pine-apple upside-down cake is amazing,Ž said server Bonnie Sue Fickett During a recent visit, the featured sweet was peach pie, always offered before the check by the servers. Crystal Doyle is a perky, efficient blonde whos been here daily for eight years, serving up the regulars. Im going to cry,Ž she said, when asked what shed do now. Ralph is the best boss ever. Hes a great guy. I used to work at a bar, and came here and thought, I dont knowƒ but Ralph was just terrific to work for.Ž This is the best job I ever had,Ž Ms. Fickett said. The diners are going to miss a place to eat, but the workers are out of a job, she said. Whats in store for Mr. Percys retirement? I honestly dont know,Ž he said. I have some hobbies „ I grow orchids. Im an outdoors person.Ž Asked if hed keep working to manage an established place, he said, Thats a real possibility. Im used to that alarm clock up here going off every morning,Ž pointing to his head. Told that we knew of some places that could use his help, he said, laugh-ing, So do I!Ž Ralphs Place is scheduled to be open through Oct. 16.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 6-12, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15The Dish: Butter Lettuce Salad The Place: The Regional Kitchen & Public House, CityPlace, 651 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach; 557-6460 or The Price: $11 The Details: Just about anyone from the South is familiar with okra. You can stew it or bread and fry it, but it still has that slimy consistency that earns it scorn from many. But you won t get that from Chef Lindsay Autry. Instead of stewing or breading and frying the seedpods, she slices them vertically and fries them up into feathery crisp strips that add a little crunch to a salad of butter lettuce. Sweet corn and roasted tomato lend depth and a creamy butt ermilk ranch dressing sets it off. I could have made a meal of this, but theres no way one can pass on Chef Autrys fried chicken thighs ($9), the heavenly pickled shrimp ($12) or ched-dary rich tomato pie ($9). Q „ Sc ott Simmons H omeless people always can find a good meal at The Lords Places Caf Joshua. Some of them learn how to cook good meals there, too, through Caf Joshuas Culinary Apprenticeship pro-gram and with Joshua Catering Compa-ny. The skills they master can help them get a job in the food service industry. On hand to help them at Caf Joshua is Chef de Cuisine Massimo Marrou. Locals may remember him as the force behind a commercial kitchen and deliv-ery service he opened in Lake Worth in 2011 called I Dont Feel Like Cooking Tonight. He prepared authentic Italian, French and Spanish dishes to provide gourmet meals for those who wanted good food, but didnt want to (or didnt have time to) cook themselves, hence the moniker. He sold the business (now the Sugar Monkey bakery) last year and found his way to The Lords Place. His wife, Nydia Sabugo-Marrou, works for Adopt-A-Family and got to know Diane Stanley, CEO of The Lords Place. Ms. Stanley, who Chef Marrou said is a foodie and a wonderful cook,Ž invited the Marrous over for dinner one night after he had sold his business. Three months later she (Ms. Stanley) told my wife there was a position open at The Lords Place and wondered if I would be interested,Ž Chef Marrou said. After interviewing for the job, he became a part-time consultant to see how he would work with clients. Diane wanted to take the catering service to the next level,Ž he said. It was a risk for them,Ž Chef Marrou said, because they had not tasted any of my food.Ž But the risk paid off for all and after three months, Chef Marrou became the full-time chef de cuisine, working with instructors Maria Daguerre and John Moynihan. Its difficult to combine the training side of it with the business side of it,Ž he said. His background was good prepara-tion for the task. In addition to a degree from the Florida Culinary Institute, Chef Marrou has a degree in finance and economics from Florida Atlantic University. My goal is to keep helping students so they can be self-sufficient and find a job,Ž he said. We want to be the best catering company in Palm Beach County.Ž Having grown up in Spain and Italy, Chef Marrou learned to cook beside his mother, his inspiration in the kitchen. I have always liked to cook,Ž he said. Its in me. I cook to bring back memo-ries. It connects me to my culture. I like the history behind dishes.Ž When he was 20, Chef Marrou moved to Gainesville to study business admin-istration. He met his wife in Gaines-ville, moved to West Palm Beach and enrolled at the Florida Culinary Insti-tute. I worked in the restaurant business starting as a dishwasher, salad station, grill, line cook, sous chef, and in 1995, I was the head chef at a restaurant called Samba Ole,Ž Chef Marrou said. His favorite dish is pasta al pesto Genovese. But he likes all kinds of cui-sine. I like diversity and being open-minded,Ž he said. I love pasta and eat it four or five times a week with salad. I like seafood and dont eat meat much. I eat lot of vegetables, fruit, nuts and herbs.Ž When hes not working, he loves to read, go to movies, travel and taste new dishes. Im not afraid to try new things,Ž he said. He encourages his students to adopt a similar outlook. Massimo MarrouAge: 47 Hometown: Imperia, Italy Restaurant: The Lords Place Joshua Catering, 2808 N. Australian Ave., West Palm Beach; 494-0125, Mission: To mentor students on their journey to self-sufficiency through culi-nary arts. Cuisine: My favorite cuisine is regional Italian. Training: I studied business administration in Gainesville, have a degree from the Florida Culinary Institute and a degree in finance and economics from Florida Atlantic University. I worked in the restaurant business starting as a dishwasher, salad station, grill, line cook, sous chef and, in 1995, I was the head chef at a restaurant called Samba Ole. Choice of footwear: Danskos. What advice would I give to an upcoming cook or chef? Go to school and when you start working in the field, begin as a dishwasher and work your way up. Because when you are a chef, youre going to have to know how to do each job. If you want to become a chef, you have to love it, because it means long hours and you dont get to spend much time with your family.

4 LUXE LIVING OCTOBER 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLYCOVER STORY“From roof to driveway and from summer kitchen to poolscape, I like to concentrate on the whole picture of a project.” – Mary Petron Designer Mary Petron brings a special touch to each room Whole House Splendor BY KELLY MERRITT When it comes to presenting that wow factor for which superstar designers are known, Mary Petron doesn t discriminate. Bedroom, bath or kitchen, lanai or home office „ each room has the potential to become something special. People like to introduce a wow factor in perhaps an accent wall or certain painting or sculpture, but I strive to make an entire room the wow factor,Ž Mrs. Petron said. In fact, my handle for business meetings and networking is, If rooms could talk, mine would say Wow! Ž Mrs. Petrons portfolio is a testament to her philosophy. Soaring windows framed with custom drapery, vast expanses of neutral tones interspersed with vibrant color and the use of elements that honor the location „ all hallmarks of the 20 years Mrs. Petron spent honing her craft. Each room tells its own story, but somehow manages to blend seam-lessly into the overall personality of the home. This high honors graduate of the New York School of Interior Design enjoys projects of all kinds. From roof to driveway and from summer kitchen to poolscape, I like to concentrate on the whole picture of a project,Ž she says, calling her design touches American, Continen-tal, modern and eclectic. I like to take a bit of whimsy, a smattering of color, throw in some creative zeal and top it off with an exact intuitive sense of just when the atmosphere is done, the lighting is perfect and the surroundings are beyond reproach, but I also concentrate on function and aesthetics working together „ never one sacrificed for the other.Ž The big picture can include luxury homes, offices, restaurants and even country clubs, depending on the proj-ect.

FLORIDA WEEKLY OCTOBER 2016 LUXE LIVING 5 COVER STORYBeach County and has national clients, with a concentration in the Southeast and Northeast and current projects in New York, New Jersey, Georgia and Florida. Beyond whole house design and renovations, the details matter just as much, from window treatments to finishes, down to area rugs and houseplants. Mrs. Petron cites a process she developed long ago as what has helped make her indispensable to her clients. I hand-draw a perspective of the room we are designing so that every-one can visualize the design concept I envision and from this drawing I either tweak some things or obtain approval to advance to the next stage,Ž she said. It is very important to portray the con-cept on paper so we are all on the same page.Ž The varying degrees of Mrs. Petron s projects range from a small bathroom renovation to demolition of an entire house down to studs including removal of electrical wirings, windows and walls. Because remodels can be so stressful on clients, Mrs. Petron is quick to share her advice. Maintain an open mind about the unknown factors and have a realistic budget figure in mind „ when formu-lating a budget, begin thinking of what you want to change, because the style can very much affect what you need to put in the budget,Ž she said. An interior designer can be very valuable to the cli-ent at this stage of the project since we are aware of all the items of importance for costing out a job, beginning with the selection of plumbing fixtures and appliances.Ž Sometimes, design skills and lifechanging work intersect, such as in the case of Mrs. Petrons long distance design of a detox center for adolescent addicts at St. Lukes hospital in New Bedford, Mass. This was a huge project converting two entire hospital floors to the needs for bedrooms, kitchenettes, game rooms, family rooms, treatment rooms,Ž said Mrs. Petron of the project she com-pleted using space-plan drawings and color boards. Even though she had to keep the project code compliant, my design could make these youngsters comfortable in these surroundings.Ž Mrs. Petron also has a nursing background and is a mother to three teenag-ers, both of which helped her to achieve what she calls a meaningful project. She counts the St. Lukes design among her favorites, and currently is working on houses that give a nod to the past, upgrading them for a new genera-tion of inhabitants. Something unique and special about some of our current projects is the fact that we are doing major renovation projects on houses 30 years old and making modifications to the original architectural style,Ž she said. That means repurposing existing rooms and using the latest technol-ogy, appliances, lighting fixtures, impact resistant glass, sleek surfaces and clean lines to update them. Energy efficiency counts, too. So does livability. That provides the atmosphere these houses need in order to remain special places to live,Ž she said.

8 LUXE LIVING OCTOBER 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLYDESIGN MAKEOVEROne block to paradise Allison Paladino makes over a beach retreat BY KELLY MERRITT When Allison Paladino takes on a project, she approaches it with joy. And as one of Palm Beach s top makeover magicians, she loves a challenge. So when the opportunity arose to trans-form a contemporary home in Palm Beach a block from the ocean, she exe-cuted the project in typical AP Interiors style. The designer achieved the new look for her clients, who wanted to renovate the home, but keep the modern design. Before, the house was too formal, and Mrs. Paladino knew how important it was for her clients family to have a home that was more livable. We collaborated on this project with architect Peter Papadopoulos from Smith & Moore and cabinet design-er Joe Tralongo from Leeds Custom Design, who also did the construction, and we also designed several furniture pieces for the house,Ž she said. In addi-tion, we completel y gutted the kitchen and all the bathrooms, which made such an impact.Ž Mrs. Paladino said the previous kitchen was completely closed in. Opening it up to the family and dining rooms allowed for everyone in the gathering space to feel connected. On the cabinetry finishes, we used a dark textured wood with contrasting back painted white glass cabinets, with Caesarstone countertops for a mini-malist look and durability, while in the master bath, a large freestanding glass shower overlooks a linear pool ending in a raised Jacuzzi,Ž she said. On the opposite wall is a two-person water-works with a backdrop wood paneling, flanked by vanities in the same, along with a comfortable banquette that adds warmth and comfort between the tub and shower.Ž Another striking move included the floors, which began as white polished stone. Mrs. Paladino and her team replaced them with dark walnut wood floors. This added warmth and grounded the entire space,Ž she said. The project wasnt without challenges „ and this house included a massive support column in the kitchen. Because the team wanted to open up kitchen, they had to find a way to make it work. We wrapped it with the same dark textured wood finish as the cabinetry, which created a beautiful detail, but there were more challenges,Ž said Mrs. Paladino. Those challenges included an opening into the laundry that was in the middle of the floor-to-ceiling cabinets. She decided to make a couple of those cabinets into a blind door. The result is it looks great from the kitchen side and is practical,Ž she said. Practicality was important, since her client took a budget-friendly approach to the guest bathrooms. To solve that issue, the team selected porcelain tiles, plumbing fixtures and cabinetry that served to update the bathrooms without breaking the bank. We also selected furniture and offthe-shelf bedding that was inexpensive but gave a lot of bang for the buck,Ž said Mrs. Paladino. Her favorite aspect of the installation was taking a house with what she calls great bonesŽ and warming it up. To achieve this, we used tactile mate-rials like the wood floor, textured wood and white glass cab-inets in kitchen to bring it up to the 21st century, so the house looks like it was just built,Ž she said. It was also great working with clients that could think out of the box and let us be cre-ative.Ž Q AP Interiors 11891 U.S. Highway 1, Suite 202 North Palm Beach; (561) 814-2836 Designer Allison PaladinoSARGENT ARCHITECTURAL PHOTOGRAPHY

10 LUXE LIVING OCTOBER 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLYTRAVELDreams of fall inspire Floridians to hit the road BY KELLY MERRITT Fall brings with it one of nature s most beautiful shows: foliage and the lure of a road trip. Leaves the color of sunsets. The scent of wood smoke. Who can resist the allure of autumn? But Floridians arent likely to see much of a display unless they head to North Florida. Here are a few places that relish the arrival of Sunshine State travelers on the trail of changing leaves. There is a reason so many Michiganbased snowbirds wait until winter to head south. They dont want to miss the leaf-peeping season. In southern Michigan, Ann Arbor has a lot of autumn to share with tree-lined lakes. Hyperl ocal cuisine is big here, which lends itself to some beautiful drives. Dont miss the 15-minute drive to Ypsilanti, where raw honey and pumpkins await. ( New Orleans is hardly the first place one might consider when considering a foliage adventure, but the St. Charles Ave-nue Streetcar is a 13-mile line that glides through the citys Garden District. In fall, the oak trees burst into color, and the his-toric streetcars give you a platform from which to watch. Riders go through Audu-bon Park, past the Civil War Museum and Gallier Hall before traveling through the Garden District. ( Surry County, North Carolina, is the states best place to see fall colors, thanks to its lesser known back roads and low-key vibe. Begin with a tour of Pilot Mountain, a landmark that Native Americans used to guide their way for generations. A few miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, Surry also is home to some of the areas best cui-sine, beginning with Nikis Pickles, served chilled alongside a local wine or craft brew at The Living Room. Nearby Elkins culinary claim to fame is Roxxi & Lulus, where grilled cheese sandwiches warm the soul with housemade roasted tomato soup and brown butter sugar cookies. The area boasts dozens of wineries within a few miles of each other. ( A little farther west, Big Cedar Lodge is a wilderness resort that brims with color-ful leaves. Nestled in the Missouri Ozarks, it springs from the vision of Johnny Morris, the founder of Bass Pro Shops and an envi-ronmental conservationist whose mission is to preserve Ozarks natural history. Nearby Top of the Rock golf course is only accessible by ATV. It is a twisting road through the Lost Canyon Cave, which was formed when water penetrated through the areas limestone over thousands of years. The Ancient Ozarks Natural His-tory Museum, in the main building at the end of the trail, contains prehistoric artifacts, including a woolly mammoth, saber-toothed cat and giant ground sloth skeletons. ( Q PHOTOS BY KELLY MERRITT / FLORIDA WEEKLYLeaves put on a show along a misty railroad track in Surry County, North Carolina. Surry County intersects with four rivers, including the Ararat River Greenway in Mount Airy. One of hundreds of North Carolina waterfalls.Pilot Mountain offers close-up and faraway glimpses of the first of fall color.


FLORIDA WEEKLY LUXE LIVING 11DESIGN Q&A Behind the scenes of one of South Florida’s longest running design firmsWhen your name is Jon Snow and you run Brown s Interior Design, youve got the skinny on just about the entire his-tory of design in South Florida. Murray Brown opened the store in 1982 after retiring to Florida, adding his Jupiter store to his sons Boca Raton location. The furniture showroom was lined with sofas and everything else that could be imagined for the home. It became Browns Home Furnishing and Design, with Mr. Snow beginning his career there, way back in 1995, after a career in radio and television. When the decision to focus more on design and less on sofas came to pass, Mr. Snow helped ensure a smooth tran-sition. The current location, on Maple-wood Drive, became the perfect place to apply that focus, in a space that used to house a builder, fabric racks and all. It takes a strong team to last this long in the design world. Mr. Snow reveals how he keeps the ship running and why the captain, Mr. Brown himself, has remained a fixture on the design scene for decades and counting. Who is your typical customer and why does the company have such a long-standing patronage? While many of our clients are new homebuyers, remodeling clients and new construction buyers, we love when new homeowners come to us, even if they only have a small design fee to help them turn their houses into homes. Since removing the retail component, has that helped make room for projects that include working with existing furnishings? When people think of interior design, they often think they cant afford a designer, but we work with clients who want to keep their own furniture and coordinate newer things to spice up the house. We relish being able to focus on the design aspect of interior design. What are some tips you would offer clients before they come to your place of business for help? Read design magazines to determine color palates and things like window furnishings, decide on a budget and determine what type of design you have in mind. The key is to know what things you want utilized in your home. Most of our clients can picture in their minds, what they want „ they need help from designers to polish that vision. We pro-vide the big picture down to every detail, more or modest, we customize a design menu for each client. Mr. Brown is a design legend. What have you learned from him? Im in my 21st year in this industry and rely on something we learned long ago, and that is the customer is always right. Its about listening to the integrity of what the client is saying. One of my mottos is, We are only as good as how we strive to go out of our way to help a customer.Ž What is the best part of running Browns Interiors? Having your clients recommend Browns Interiors to friends and rela-tives. A referral is the best compliment. In your role, you must get to see all of the trends arrive and depart. What are your favorites? I prefer a more traditional eclectic look than contemporary, because I inherited my parents original dining set and buffet that I grew up with in Chicago with a traditional kitchen with traditional colors. I designed everything neutral in my house, but we have to advance toward our client and be able to approach with nonbiased design based on whatever the client wants. A good designer can overcome personal taste for the sake of the client. How about your least favorite trend? We love to stay abreast of current trends, but my only reservation is Im not big on a lot of orange. Bold colors come and go. What are some questions clients should ask before beginning a remodel or new construction to save them grief later on? The customer should want to know a time frame. Remodeling is not a TV show in which it happens in 24 hours. And also, its important to understand purpose of the remodel. If a customer wants to incorporate something in the home, its important to weigh whether to keep or discard it. See the big picture of what you envision. Rumor has it you experienced your own remodel. What did you learn from it and why does it hold such special significance to you? I remained in the house during the remodel, confined to a small space and basically my den became my bedroom for two months while my master bath was completed. I didnt go overboard, although to some people it might look like I did. But I had a vision of what I wanted and my subcontractor and I worked together to achieve that look. My father passed away during the remodel so that was an emotional time, but he was glad to see his sons home before he passed. Running a design firm carries a lot of weight. What do you do to unwind in your off time? Being a former television and radio professional, I remain a TV sitcom buff. In the evening after I have din-ner, Ill watch my favorite classic TV shows, which include Eight is Enough,Ž Laverne and Shirley,Ž Happy Days,Ž Threes CompanyŽ and Mr. Ed.Ž Q Browns Interior Design; (561) 744-1116 561.460.1071 | 216 Federal Hwy US1 | Lake Park, FL 33403 COASTALMARKET PLACE STUNNING COASTAL THEMED FURNITURE AND DECOR!
