But apparently, members of the American Legislative Exchange Council, the nationÂs largest association of state legislators, recently met in Williamsburg, Va., to host a dry-run simulation of a constitutional convention. Said ALEC, the dress rehears-al was Âto propose amendments to restore the appropriate balance of power between the federal government and the states.ÂŽ ALEC has pursued this agenda for years. It is optimistic success is in sight. ALECÂs strategy follows a tightly written script. It must round up 34 state legislatures (of which eight have already agreed) to collectively invoke Article V, the Constitutional convention clause of the U.S. Constitution. States have tried before, multiple times, but never success-fully. This time, it could happen. Article V opens the door. Two ways exist to cross its threshold: by Congress initiating the process; or by two-thirds of the statesÂ legislatures acting in concert to compel Congress to convene a Constitutional convention. ItÂs not easy. Cynical attempts to tweak the Constitu-tion face death by politics, and the orches-tration associated with either strategy is purposefully daunting. For example, Congress can propose an amendment but for it to go forward, it has to muster a two-thirds vote of both the Senate and the House. Assuming success, the political theater moves to the states. Three-fourths of the states must bless the proposed amendment, either through affirmation by state conventions or by winning approval of a super majority of the required number of individual state legislatures Â„ whichever of the two meth-ods Congress prescribes. If that seems troublesome, there is door No. 2: Start at the state level, corral enough states to meet the numerical bar. States can then force Congress to call a convention. Its purpose would be to consider amend-ments Ârelated to the 34 state applications.ÂŽ Article V provides for such a process. It takes two-thirds of all state legislatures to jointly invoke the convention clause. This is ALECÂs strategy to get to yes to amend democracyÂs Holy Grail. Working through state legislatures, it hopes to shift, through Constitutional fiat, the balance of power from the federal to the state level. If state efforts are successful in forcing Congress to act, any amendment the convention approves must be ratified by three-fourths of the states. ALEC hopes to catalyze the dawn of a new confederacy. So what is ALEC? It promotes itself as a benign, nonpartisan, association of state legislators. But its real purpose is to function as a Âbill millÂŽ promoting special interest legislation through the backdoors it has created in state governments. Unho-ly alliances are aided and abetted by ALEC through the vehicle of its membership structure, which includes state legislators, lobbyists, major corporations and various and sundry powerbrokers. The People for the American Way says ALEC is Âa one-stop shop for corporations looking to identify friendly state legisla-tors and work with them to get special-interest legislation introduced. ItÂs a win-win for corporations, their lobbyists, and right-wing legislators.ÂŽ It notes abundant cash and generous goodie bags lubricate the conversation among its members. Ninety-eight percent of ALECÂs funding is from sources other than dues of its members, including major corpora-tions, big dog donors and private and fam-ily foundations funding right-wing causes. This is why ordinary people wouldnÂt have the Williamsburg meeting on their calen-dar or hear about it on the nightly news. It is a private party and the conversations that occur there are just between friends. ALEC has been around since 1973. But with so many states governed at present by Republican majorities, it is enjoying a boomlet of influence in state capitals, including our own. A 2012 report issued by a coalition of progressive groups documents how incestuous the relationships have become between ALEC and FloridaÂs conserva-tive lawmakers. T he cookie-c utter-type bills introduced in our legislature mir-ror bills ALEC peddles in multiple other states. ALECÂs distribution list of carbon copies bears few distinctions unique to FloridaÂs circumstance; and commonly share ALECÂs DNA signature: a decided tilt toward corporate self-interests and private profits. In an analysis of legislation enacted by Florida lawmakers, ALEC left its footprint behind in most areas of state policy-mak-ing. Its Âmodel billsÂŽ included legislation to undermine environmental protections, eviscerate health care reforms, privatize public education, erode workersÂ rights, limit liability for corporate wrong-doing and disenfranchise voters. The report concluded ALECÂs legislative groupies Âamended Florida statutes for the worse, harming the rights and opportunities of everyday citizens in the process.ÂŽ So it does not bode well that ALEC is hard set on tinkering with the U.S. Constitution. What could possibly go wrong? As it turns out, quite a lot. ALECÂs agenda Âis to return control over matters that more appropriately and constitution-ally rest with the states and municipalities back to them.ÂŽ In other words, trump the rights of federal citizenship, give states a jurisdictional override of federal policy and pre-empt local governments from managing local affairs whenever corpo-rate plantations are threatened.

Not climate change or immigration or tax equality or nuclear proliferation or the strategies that direct American troops over-seas. Do we continue to use them and lose them while futilely shaping new societies from old cultures with no experience of democracy? Each of those problems springs like a thorn bush from the bed of the key issue: Our role among nations. What we do now Â„ how we vote on that question in about 25 days Â„ will transform the world of our children for better or worse. Mr. Trump represents the new isolationism: LetÂs build walls physically and philo-sophically, keeping out the unwanted and unwashed. LetÂs tell the world we come first in the chow line. WeÂll trade on our terms only, and we have the red button. Mrs. Clinton, conversely, represents an American status quo unaltered since 1941, an ideology neither Republican nor Dem-ocrat, per se, but participatory. Presidents Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Clinton, George W. Bush and Obama all have pointed Americans into the exter-nal and sometimes the internal affairs of other nations. Put simply, we aim to direct the way other nations treat us, and periodically the way they treat their own people. We act or fail to act based on sometimes difficult-to-measure portions of self-interest and altruism. When Robert Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations and a State Department official for both Bush presi-dents, presented similar ideas in a Wall Street Journal commentary in August, he also cautioned us not to give up. ÂTurning away from global engagement would mean not just opportunities lost: in jobs reliant on exports, in opportunities to invest overseas, the ability to travel without fear. It would also bring conflict and nuclear proliferation. As the world unraveled, Americans would be more vulnerable to terrorism, illegal immigration, climate change and disease.ÂŽ Finally, he said, ÂWe do not have the option of becoming a giant gated com-munity.ÂŽ We must lead with trade. To do that well, we must reform our unequal tax laws, require fair trading standards, and aggressively help citizens here who lose jobs as technologies and productions evolve and move. Mr. TrumpÂs urge to break more than 70 years of such globalization and relative stability led by Americans who trade Â„ and who must reach out culturally to do so Â„ would prove catastrophic for our children. His strategy could do more harm than our bridge-too-far failures in three wars we hoped would reshape the character of nations: Korea (1950-1953), Vietnam (rough-ly 1960-1973), and Iraq (2003 to present). The writer Bill Kilpatrick, a combatwounded veteran of World War II, remem-bers much of this history personally. ÂIÂve heard this tune before,ÂŽ he told me in a note last week, describing Mr. TrumpÂs urge to isolate the United States. ÂMaking noise beginning in 1940 was a group calling itself the America First Com-mittee. Its membership, said at one time to number 800,000, included big-name politi-cians and heads of some of the nationÂs lead-ing industrial and commercial enterprises. The committee came into being to keep the United States out of the European war. ÂThe group was particularly strident in its opposition to this country aiding a belea-guered British Commonwealth, in the early days of World War II the only viable Euro-pean entity opposing the seemingly invinci-ble German onslaught. Popularly applied to the committee was the sobriquet ÂAmerica Firsters,Â and to its supporters classification as ÂIsolationists.Â The AFCÂs most glamorous spokesman was aviator Charles A. Lindbergh. In the late 1930s he also won notori-ety for having praised GermanyÂs Luftwaffe. ÂAs noble a cause as these men and women were convinced was theirs, they were ostriches. They put their heads in the sand, apparently unmindful or heed-less of the worldÂs ever-evolving dynam-ics. Their position was that America was sufficient and complete unto itself. But they were wrong. The world was shrink-ing and if the United States was to contin-ue to grow and prosper it could not expect to do so feeding upon itself; it simply had to have overseas markets.ÂŽ Those markets would never have worked in HitlerÂs Europe or JapanÂs Asia, Mr. Kilpatrick said. ÂThe fallacy of all isolationists was brought home tragically with the Dec. 7, 1941, Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Sud-denly and dramatically the United States was forced into action on a worldwide stage. Americans rallied to the cause and the AFC was disbanded.ÂŽ The truth many Americans and economists recognized in those days has changed little, he added. ÂAmerica needs markets, needs international commerce, and any isolation-ist nonsense expressed about Âmaking America great againÂ is just that, nonsense. Exponents of ÂprotectiveÂ walls, restric-tive immigration laws, expulsion of illegal immigrants, restrictions on Muslims, tariff restrictions and similar draconian mea-sures aimed at pacifying our nationÂs right-wingers and wowsers have their heads in the sand. What they fail to realize, or refuse to accept, is that thanks to technolo-gies, borders are becoming less relevant; Podunk in Iran Â„ yes, even Iran Â„ is not all that different than Podunk in Iowa, par-ticularly in regard to young people.ÂŽ What this means is not complicated, in the view of one wise old man. ÂThe needs and wants of people everywhere are, basically, similar, and quasi-fas-cism as expounded by the likes of Donald Trump isnÂt going to make a bit of differ-ence. The genie of socialistic international-ism is out of the bottle, and, ultimately, we all are keepers of our brothers.ÂŽ We all are keepers of our brothers. Q The media freak-outWe are in the midst of an epic media freak-out. It is a subset of a larger liberal panic over Donald TrumpÂs strength in the gen-eral election. The mood of the center-left is, ÂAmerica, how dare you?ÂŽ The out-raged incomprehension is seeping into and, increasingly, driving the coverage of the race. The freak-out began a few weeks ago when Donald Trump started to close the polling gap with Hillary Clinton, and picked up intensity as the race essentially became a tie. The media is going to be in a perpetual state of high anxiety and dud-geon until Election Day. The press is playing catch-up. It didnÂt take much foresight to realize that giving Trump $2 billion worth of free publicity in his primary battle might help him win his partyÂs nomination. Still, it was all fun and games as long as the ratings were good and Trump trailed Hillary. Not anymore. There have been two seminal events in the freak-out. The first was the absurdly over-the-top criticism of Matt Lauer for not being tough enough on Trump at an NBC national-security forum. Lauer couldnÂt have satisfied his critics short of slapping Trump in the face and demanding, ÂHave you no sense of decency, sir?ÂŽ The second was a New York Times Ânews analysisÂŽ on TrumpÂs disavowal of birtherism that was intended as an exem-plary act of journalistic aggression Â„ a rhetorical assault worthy of the poison pen of Maureen Dowd that led the paper with the extremely hostile headline, ÂTrump Gives Up a Lie, But Refuses to Repent.ÂŽ Some of the anti-Trumpism in the media has been expressed in pointless and annoying gestures, such as CNNÂs practice of fact-checking TrumpÂs state-ments in snarky chyrons at the bottom of the screen. More significantly, Lester Holt tilted anti-Trump during the debate. Trump got tougher questions than Clinton, who was spared queries on matters such as the Clinton Foundation and Benghazi. And he fact-checked Trump in real time twice, arguably getting his correction of Trump about a complex stop-and-frisk case wrong. Notably, Holt got positive reviews. Trump is indeed a different kind of animal and has stressed every institution that has encountered him over the past year, from the Republican National Committee to rival campaigns to the media. But the current media freak-out is hard to take, and a mistake. One, it is galling, since the media is collectively deciding to give up on an objectivity that it never had. John McCain and Mitt Romney, upstanding, honor-able men who werenÂt allegedly threats to the republic, were on the receiving end of more negative coverage than Barack Obama. Two, it speaks to a certain contempt for the mediaÂs fellow citizens, who are presumed incapable of rationally evaluat-ing the candidates without its thumb on the scale. Three, if Trump loses, the media will go right back to its pose of objectivity. Where-as the only good thing about the mediaÂs current jag is that it might represent move-ment toward a more British-style (and tra-ditional American-style) journalism, with outlets forthrightly acknowledging their partisan allegiances. Nothing is going to dissuade the media from its current course, though. There is no reasoning with fear and loathing.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 13-19, 2016 A5 BEHIND THE WHEELHow to take advantage of the Â‘Mazda LoopholeÂ’For those hoping that this column would be about tire-screeching hot laps, we have that coming next week. Instead, as model-year closeout sales begin, weÂre going to take a look at an interesting situation that will help you put an upgraded machine in your everyday garage. ItÂs all about Mazda. ThereÂs a quiet transition thatÂs going on with all the cars. In the last decade Mazda struck out on its own after breaking most ties with the Ford Motor Company. This has allowed the company to further its efforts into providing sporty cars for the sensible shoes crowd. Today, the brand is squarely in the mainstream, with pricing that starts at $18,680 for a base Mazda3 sedan and topping out around $47K for a flagship CX-9 crossover with every option box checked. Mazda draws one of the most diverse buyer groups around despite being out-side of the top 10 auto companies in the world. Its cars are often seen as outlier on shopping lists for those who stay with Japanese quality-driven brands like Nissan or Toyota. But MazdaÂs driver-oriented products also some-times steal European brand customers who are willing to give up some pres-tige for lower maintenance costs. So why is this important to the average consumer? Mazda is looking to capitalize on both of these strengths moving for-ward. Every year there is a group of consumers whose budgets grow enough to begin shopping in the premium vehi-cle segment. Not everyone who seeks entry-level luxury is thrilled with the expensive service requirements and maintenance costs that often accom-pany a premium brand. Mazda has found a good home for those refugees from invoice shock. Everything from the Miata roadster to the CX-3 crossover offers some of the European performance feeling on the road with Jiffy Lube sensibilities. But now, rather than trying to catch these premium buyers as they fall down, Mazda wants to give them a reason to stay with the brand as they move upward. The company admits the new focus is to fit between Honda and Acura in the automotive world. Mazda wonÂt be abandoning its strategy of providing mainstream vehicles, but it will focus on amplifying the premium feeling on new higher-level trim options. A byproduct of this has been an increase in materi-als quality thatÂs trickling down to very basic (i.e. affordable) vehicles. For example, the new Mazda CX-9 is the latest vehicle built in this image. The seven-passenger crossover is more attractive than its predecessor, and it takes more than a thoughtful design to accomplish this upgrade. The new CX-9 uses better materials on the exte-rior, which makes it more expensive to build. Inside, the top tier Signature trim level is downright luxurious, with nappa leather seats, open grain rosewood trim and power accessories galore. This top-of-the-line $45,000 Mazda feels like sitting in a $55,000 BMW X5, and thatÂs not a coincidence. The German car is more powerful, has even more available features and has an undeniable prestige that the CX-9 cannot match. But Mazda isnÂt going toe-to-toe for every BMW cus-tomer. The premium trim CX-9 is just a well-placed alternative to stepping up to an X5. But the real value is at the other end of the spectrum Â„ the base CX-9 can be taken home for $32,420. The exterior is missing some trim elements of the pre-mium versions, but all those expensive investments in making a comprehen-sively appealing design are still present on the lowest rung of the ladder. Inside is a similar story. Some of the leather and wood is replaced by cloth and plastic, but the stamped metal, dashboard layout and overall build quality donÂt change much between the base model and the highest echelon. Thus, as the company aims for a more affluent piece of the market, this allows more mainstream buyers to take advantage of a fortuitous upgrade in the bargain basement. We can affec-tionately refer to the situation as the ÂMazda Loophole.ÂŽ After all, the goal might be to sell as many upper trim (i.e., more profitable) vehicles as possible, but at the end of the day, the company is just happy you went home in a Mazda.

You might think that I would have dog-proofing down by now, but each dog has been attracted to dif-ferent items or has done things it didnÂt occur to the other dogs to try. Our cur-rent Ânew dogÂŽ is Kibo, a Cavalier King Charles spaniel weÂre fostering until he is adopted. One of the first things Kibo taught me was to put away my shoes and to close doors. None of our other dogs have been chewers, but Kibo likes to examine things with his mouth in the fervent hope that they will be edible. He has gone into the closet to chew on my leather sandals (caught before he did any damage) and explored the walk-in shower. There he found and carried away a plastic razor, which, fortunately, he abandoned in the hall-way instead of swallowing. He is also fond of a tiny, gold papier-mache box. He hasnÂt chewed it up or swallowed it, which he could easily do, but he likes to take it off the side table and lie with it. ItÂs now out of reach, too. Despite his short stature, Kibo tries hard to be a countertop surfer. WeÂve learned not to hold or place food at any height where he could jump up and reach it. Our other dogs are also highly food-oriented, but they wouldnÂt dream of snatching food out of our hands. Kibo does more than dream it Â„ he tries it. I always push the chair in if I get up from the table because I can tell that the idea of jumping onto it to get at the food is running through his mind. If you are living with a Kibo of your own, here are some tips to keep your belongings safe, your house in one piece and your dog out of trouble. Q Use a crate. When you cannot supervise your dog, even if itÂs just for a few minutes, put him in the crate to prevent any misbehavior. Kibo hangs out in his crate on his own and heÂs happy to go into it when asked because he knows he will get a treat. Q Tether your dog. That means he is leashed at your side at all times. This is a great way to learn the signals a new dog or puppy gives when he needs to go potty. It keeps him under your watchful eye so he canÂt get into mischief and helps build a bond between you. Q Get down at dogÂs-eye level to see what might attract the dogÂs attention. Electrical cords, small trash containers and dangling dish towels all can pose threats. Bundle cords and encase them in tough plastic covers, put trash con-tainers out of reach, and keep dish tow-els in drawers if your dog is attracted to them. Chair and table legs often look good to chew. Coat them with Bitter Apple spray to deter taste-testing (try it first in an inconspicuous area to make sure it doesnÂt damage the finish). Make sure no sharp edges or choking hazards are within a dogÂs reach. Q Most important, never underestimate the intelligence and inventiveness of dogs. They can learn to open doors, climb up on counters and desks using other pieces of furniture as launch pads, and crawl under or wiggle into places youÂve never imagined they would go. Be smart and put away or block access to valuable, fragile or dangerous items, and secure cabinets with childproof locks. Q Pets of the Week>> Rusty is a neutered male orange tabby with short hair and beautiful markings. He is about 6 years old. He loves people, and really enjoys being petted.>> Dollywood is a spayed long-haired female cat, approximately 4 years old. SheÂ’s black and white, with a uffy tail. SheÂ’s a little bit shy when rst meeting people, but she enjoys the attention of her people.

Eighteen filmmakers, from fledglings to fulltimers, submitted swedes for the show. ÂSome are professionals, but the rest are just creative people or complete ama-teurs who get their friends together and do something whacky,ÂŽ Ms. Dashiell said. The event sells out every year and is expected to do the same at its new venue, The Kelsey Theater in Lake Park. ÂThe Kelsey is an offbeat artistsÂ enclave, and this is an offbeat artistsÂ fes-tival,ÂŽ Ms. Dashiell said. ÂItÂs an absolutely perfect place.ÂŽ Doors open at 7 p.m. with a riotous redcarpet reception. ÂSome people will actually come in costume with the swede they made,ÂŽ Ms. Dashiell said. After meeting, mingling and posing for photos, the filmmakers and their fans will enter the theater for the preposterous premiere. The swedes will be shown in blocks of four, with breaks in between so guests can vote for their favorites. ÂThe audience can make notes on which of these awful films is the best of the worst or the worst of the best,ÂŽ Ms. Dashiell said. The swede with the most votes will win a grand prize that, in previous years, has included hardware and software used in the filmmaking field. A few other prizes will be offered to the most-beloved of bombs, including gift cards and in-kind donations from local businesses. Prizes aside, swede fest is less about competition and more about creativity. It aims to engage everyone from school students and soccer moms to family and friends. ÂIt gives a lot of people who donÂt even consider themselves filmmakers kind of a chance to give it a whirl,ÂŽ Ms. Dashiell said. Danielle Provencher is one of them. Ms. ProvencherÂs roommate submitted a swede several years ago, and she attended the festival in support of him. ÂIt was such a good time,ÂŽ the Lake Worth resident said. ÂIt was like this min-iature Oscar night.ÂŽ Ms. Provencher submitted a swede last year Â„ her first Â„ and won runner-up for an incomparable interpretation of the 1979 science-fiction film ÂAlien.ÂŽ She sub-mitted a scene from the 1984 action movie ÂGhostbustersÂŽ this year. ÂI find I really like the films that have the special effects,ÂŽ the page designer at The Palm Beach Post said. ÂYou donÂt often get to shoot Silly String at one another when youÂre an adult.ÂŽ Ms. ProvencherÂs swede captures the climax of the movie, when the Stay Puft marshmallow man takes on the ghost-busters, gatekeeper and key master at the haunted high-rise apartment complex. She spent $100 on props and 30 hours on the project. Her suite of tools: a Canon Rebel single-lens-reflex digital camera set to video mode, a MacBook Pro and iMovie. ÂStuff I donÂt know how to do in iMovie, I Google it,ÂŽ she said. ÂI enjoy it.ÂŽ Jason Galotti has participated in swede fest each if its five years. The aspiring director and producer also is a frequent entrant in local, regional and national film festivals. ÂItÂs a way to be creative and to do something thatÂs different from my nor-mal, everyday job,ÂŽ said the aquatic tech-nician for the Coral Springs Improvement District in Broward County. ÂInstead of working in canals and spraying weeds with herbicide, I get to go out and write scripts, direct scenes, act.ÂŽ Mr. GalottiÂs swedes have included ÂThe Terminator,ÂŽ ÂThey Live,ÂŽ ÂRobo-copÂŽ and a mashup of ÂThe GooniesÂŽ and ÂBatman.ÂŽ He wrapped his version of ÂFerris BuellerÂs Day OffÂŽ at the end of September. ÂSwede fest is really fun,ÂŽ he said. ÂItÂs not something to be stressing over, not something to be taking seriously.ÂŽ Mr. Galotti shot his swede Â„ the scene in which Ferris is trying to make it home before his father, mother and sister get there Â„ on a $60 budget in two daysÂ time. He used a Canon 60D, Final Cut Pro and a Macintosh desktop computer. His wife, daughter, mother and mother-in-law all have roles. ÂWhen I look back when IÂm older, IÂm always going to be able to cherish these moments,ÂŽ he said. ÂThis is time person-ally spent well for me.ÂŽ Q SWEDE FESTFrom page 1 swede fest>> Time: 7-9 p.m. >> Date: Oct. 15 >> Where: The Kelsey Theater, 700 Park Ave., Lake Park >> Cost: $12 in advance, $15 at the door >> Info: 543-8276 or www.swedefest palmbeach.com What is a swede? A swede is a low-budget, laughably bad remake of a Hollywood block-buster. The term comes from the 2008 comedy Â“Be Kind Rewind,Â” in which two bumbling store clerks inadvertently erase the footage from all of the tapes in their video-rental store and, upon re-shooting every movie with their own camera, tout them as European Â“swedesÂ” because it sounds sophisticated. It spawned a craze and resulted in the rst swede fest in Fresno, Calif. Next came the Tampa bay swede fest. Palm Beach CountyÂ’s swede fest is believed to be the third of its kind in the country. COURTESY PHOTOA swede version of Â“Alice in WonderlandÂ” is on tap for this yearÂ’s festival. Filmmakers shoot a scene from a swede ver-sion of Â“The Phantom Menace.Â”

A10 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 13-19, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYsequel? Is Florida weather X-rated? Is hot air blowing in from the 2016 presi-dential campaigns? Probably all of the above. Experts, meanwhile, point to other reasons for the rain, hot days and unusually muggy summer nights (even for South Florida) that weÂve experi-enced. An unusually strong El Nio and a warming planet are two factors that may have contributed to the record-breaking weather patterns over the last year, said FloridaÂs official state clima-tologist, David Zierden at Florida State University. The warming of the air, land and water is expected to continue in the years to come to boost tempera-tures, create unex-pected weather pat-terns, and fuel more weather extremes: wetter wet periods and dryer dry ones, as well as events like freezes. Scientists believe the warming planet may be partly to blame for individual local weather events such as the rains this winter, or the flooding that Char-lotte CountyÂs Deep Creek community experienced in early September. But itÂs hard to know how much. ÂThe Earth as a whole continues to warm and thatÂs undoubtedly due to an increase in green-house gases,ÂŽ Mr. Zierden said. ÂBut when you start talk-ing about regional and local effects, thatÂs when it gets a little murkier.ÂŽ A climate scientist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administra-tion, Jake Crouch, said scientists are starting to figure out how to make those determinations. ÂItÂs kind of an emerging area of science to parse outÂŽ the shorter and longer-term trends that cause local weather events, he said. While many variables, including chance, come into play, the underlying long-term trend influencing our climate is global warming, said Mr. Crouch. The year 2016 is set to be the record warm-est year for Earth, in front of 2015 and 2014. Florida is warming too, he noted, since 1950 at a rate of about three degrees Fahrenheit per century. For the year ending in September, the stateÂs average temperature of 73.2 degrees set the record high. An unusually strong El Nio during the first half of the year was the major short-term factor that boosted tempera-tures and the rainfall that drenched South Florida during what is normally the winter dry season. In the com-ing winter, the opposite La Nia cycle, although it is expected to be a weak one, could mean dryer weather. ÂLast winter we were in, by some measures, the strongest El Nio of the century and El Nio is really well known to bring much above normal rainfall to South Florida in the winter months,ÂŽ Mr. Zierden said. From December to February this year, 15.3 inches of precipitation soaked the Southwest Florida region and the Ever-glades, almost 10 inches above the 20th century average, NOAA data shows. A record. Even so, the overall amount of rain averaged over the year ending in Sep-tember made it the 25th wettest year on record for the region. And over the sum-mer the amount of rain we saw in South Florida was about normal, and slightly below normal on the southeast coast. ÂWhat weÂre seeing more of, is weÂre getting more precipitation occurring in single events,ÂŽ said Mr. Crouch, instead of spread out throughout a year. Just how much recent heat and rain could be attributed to climate change at this point is undetermined, Mr. Zierden said. ÂThis year and this summer was certainly exceptional but itÂs only one year and weÂd need to see a continuation in this kind of change in temperatures and humidity to really be able to attribute it to climate change,ÂŽ he said. ÂBut as climate change progresses, I think it would be safe to assume weÂll see more summers like the one we just endured here in Florida.ÂŽ Flooding and drought combined with increasing temperatures in Flor-ida Âcould really have compounding effects on our hydrologic systems and our water resources,ÂŽ one of his primary concerns in Florida, Mr. Zierden said. The rains this winter had wide ranging implications Â„ from agriculture to businesses such as Lehigh Acres-based Larue Pest Management, for its lawn care and pest control services. ÂI remember October, November, December it was just rain, rain, rain,ÂŽ said owner Keith Ruebeling, followed by an even wetter January. ÂIt just doesnÂt seem to have stopped.ÂŽ The saturated soil at times made it difficult or impossible to apply expen-sive products that control proliferating pests such as chinch bug. ÂItÂs affected our lawn business tremendously,ÂŽ he said. HeÂs hoping for a dryer season this year but is preparing for Âwhatever hap-pens.ÂŽ ÂWeÂve had to staff up, keep more guys out there to get the work done and keep more management out there to fol-low up on these properties. You adapt as a business but itÂs not always the move you want to make, you know?ÂŽ Even if climatologists are predicting more uncertainty and extreme weath-er, farmers are experienced at dealing with it already, said Gene McAvoy, who works closely with commercial produc-ers as Hendry County extension direc-tor with the University of Florida. ÂWe had summer-like rains throughout our dry season and that greatly affected crops,ÂŽ he said. ÂWe lost quite a number of plantings on sweet corn and green beans, (and) it had impacts on a lot of other crops.ÂŽ Now in his 60s, Mr. McAvoy points out that unpredictable weather is not new, even if some say itÂs bound to get worse. ÂIÂve seen a lot of weather over my life. Sometimes we forget what we saw before.ÂŽHot days, steamy nightsA steady heat persisted for weeks of 90-degree plus temperatures on Flor-idaÂs southwest and southeast coasts during parts of the summer. ÂAs much as average temperatures were above normal this summer, it was the nighttime low temperatures where we saw the greatest increase in heat,ÂŽ Mr. Zierden said.

Holiday Party Perfection.Celebrate the Holiday Season at Breakers West. 1550 Flagler Parkway, West Palm Beach, Florida 33411 | breakerswestclub.com United States, overnight temperatures were worsened by urban heat islands in heavily populated coastal areas, and a cycle of increasing humidity warm-ing an atmosphere that can in turn hold more moisture. ÂSo itÂs kind of a feedback loop,ÂŽ Mr. Crouch said. ÂThe more moisture it holds the more it continues to warm.ÂŽ Minimum overnight temperatures along the heavily populated southeast coast of Florida tied with 2010 for the warmest on record during June, July and August at 76.8 degrees, 4 degrees above normal at a time of day when many people like to crank up the A/C to get a better nightÂs sleep. The heat has lingered on through September and into October. ÂIt got hot like in February and it looks like itÂs going to stay hot through Thanks-giving,ÂŽ said Louis Bruno, CEO of Naples-based Bruno Air Conditioning. Among those with older and traditional units, his company saw a 15 per-cent increase in repairs over the last summer season, while customersÂ ener-gy consumption increased 40 percent, he said. A newer model designed to combat FloridaÂs humid climate per-formed far better on both counts. Kenneth Robinson, owner of East Fort Myers-based Country Cooling & Heat-ing Incorporated, said that the lightning accompanying storms this year caused flurries of evening and afternoon calls due to units tripping breakers and other problems. And the heat and humid-ity that can be rough on A/C units was made worse by the winter rains that kept the soil saturated. ÂMoisture is a big, big concern,ÂŽ he said. ÂToo much moisture, too much humidity and youÂve got mold growth starting.ÂŽ While it might be human nature to see the climate through the lens of the latest storm, Janice Stillman takes a longer view. ÂWe live in most cases less than 100 years and we maybe only think about the weather only several decades of that time,ÂŽ said Ms. Stillman, an editor of The Old FarmerÂs Almanac with its famous weather forecasts that take into account solar cycles, climatology and meteorology. ÂOur experience of the change in the Earth over longer periods is really relatively brief and we have to recognize that itÂs just always changing.ÂŽ All the record-breaking events mentioned in this article, for instance, are based on modern records that only go back to the late 1800s, while the Almanac was founded in 1792. The 2017 edition describes this Solar Cycle 24 as the smallest in more than a cen-tury, which could cool off the atmosphere. ÂIf greenhouse gasses werenÂt there we might be able to say weÂd be going into a colder than normal period,ÂŽ Ms. Stillman said. ÂBut greenhouse gases could mitigate or offset the effects of low solar activity. ItÂs really a bit of an unknown.ÂŽ The AlmanacÂs forecast for Florida this winter includes Âabove normalÂŽ rainfall in the north, and Ânear nor-malÂŽ in the south; a Âcooler and rainier than normalÂŽ summer; and a Âwarmer and drier than normalÂŽ September and October 2017. Q NASA PHOTOEach of the first six months of 2016 set a record as the warmest respective month globally in the modern temperature record, which dates to 1880. Meanwhile, five of the first six months set records for the smallest monthly Arctic sea ice extent since consistent satellite records began in 1979. Â“This year and this summer was certainly exceptional but itÂ’s only one year and weÂ’d need to see a continuation in this kind o f change in temperatures and humidity to really be able to attribute it to climate change.Â” Â— David Zierden, Florida State University, FloridaÂ’s official state climatologist

Q HEALTHY LIVINGAFib treatments can reduce stroke riskYour heart beats about 100,000 times every day, pumping some 2,000 gal-lons of blood throughout your body. If you listened to your heart through a stethoscope, you would hear a steady thump-bump rhythm, but problems can develop when the rhythm is irregular. Atrial fibrillation (AFib) is a heart disorder that occurs when electrical sig-nals in the heart become irregular and cause the heartÂs upper chamber to beat out of rhythm. AFib affects about 2.7 million Americans. Though common, it requires immediate medical attention because it could lead to a life-threaten-ing stroke. Fortunately for the northern Palm Beach County community, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center has state-of-the-art electrophysiology labs equipped with advanced tools to iden-tify what might be causing a patientÂs heart to beat improperly. AFib does not always cause symptoms. Some people with the disorder can have palpitations, chest pain, fatigue, shortness of breath, dizziness or confusion. The condition is diagnosed through an electrocardiogram, which measures the heartÂs electrical impulses. In some cases, AFib resolves on its own. Other times, an underlying con-dition such as an over-active thyroid, hypertension, diabetes, chronic lung disease or heart valve disease must be treated. Medications may be prescribed to prevent blood clots or control heart rate. Cardioversion, another treatment option, can be recommended to shock the heart back to a normal rhythm by delivering a jolt of electricity to the heart. However, if these efforts are not successful, doctors could recommend atrial fibrillation ablation. Atrial fibrillation ablation involves threading a long, thin, flexible tube called a catheter into the heart through a blood vessel in the arm, upper thigh or neck. Live X-ray images are used to carefully guide the catheter into the heart. Several flexible tubes with elec-trodes on the tips are run through the catheter and placed in different small blood vessels in the heart. Sections of the heart are then mapped to locate abnormal tissue. Energy is applied to destroy targeted tissue that has been identified as causing the irregular heart-beat. Two types of energy that can be used in the procedure are radiofre-quency to generate heat, or liquid nitro-gen to freeze the targeted area of the heart. The resulting scar line then acts as a barrier between affected tissue and the rest of the healthy heart, stopping abnormal electrical signals that cause an irregular heartbeat.Following the procedure, pressure is applied to the site where the catheter was inserted, and patients must lie still for four to six hours. Their heart rate is closely monitored during this time. A chest X-ray, electrocardiogram or trans-esophageal echocardiogram may be ordered to check the heart and prevent complications. Some patients are discharged the same day, while others need to stay in the hospital overnight. Most people resume normal activ-ities in a few days.If you are interested in learning more about AFib, join Dr. Simie Platt, cardiac electrophysiologist on the medical staff at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, for a lecture on Thursday, Oct. 20, from 6 to 7 p.m. Dr. Platt will discuss risk factors, symptoms and the treat-ment options available at the hospi-tal.

Not easy being WHEN THE BACTERIAL DISEASE KNOWN AS greening collided with FloridaÂs huge citrus industry in 2005, nobody imagined that 11 years later the stateÂs annual production, now worth almost $11 billion, would have dropped from a once-high 240 million boxes of fruit to 80 million, a reduction of two-thirds. The hard numbers in a report released last month by the USDA and the state Depart-ment of Agriculture also show a massive loss of citrus-producing acreage, from a total of about 625,500 acres two decades ago, to just over 480,000 today. For a decade now, scientists and farmers have labored to understand and eradicate the disease, also known as HLB for the Chinese word Huanglongbing, or yellow dragon dis-ease.

BlinkBio Inc., a privately held biotechnology company has entered into a use agreement with The Scripps Research. ÂThe Scripps team laid out a compelling case for their strong institutional commitment to supporting an emerging biotech cluster,ÂŽ said Colin Goddard, chairman and chief executive officer of BlinkBio. He noted that state and local governments already had been successful in recruiting Scripps and Max Planck, two top research institutes, to Jupiter. ÂWe were also impressed with the regional commitment to the industry, the favorable tax environment in the state and the appropriately modest but practically targeted incentives Â„ all of which paved the way for our relocation decision,ÂŽ Mr. God-dard said. The finalization of these incentives coincides with the recently completed first closing on a planned $11 million Series A financing for BlinkBio that recapitalizes the com-pany upon completing proof-of-concept research on the companyÂs SiLinker platform, he said. ÂWe look forward to becoming an active member of the Florida bioscience community while raising further capital and seeking corporate and academic partnerships as we pursue our goal of developing novel antibody and small molecule drug conjugates for the treatment of oncology and other diseases,ÂŽ Mr. Goddard said. BlinkBio plans to create new therapeutics for the treatment of cancer and other life-threatening conditions, including autoimmune diseases. The company will occupy 1,800 square feet at 130 Scripps Way, Jupi-ter. BlinkBio anticipates making a capi-tal investment of over $1,650,000 and expects to hire 25 new employees with an average wage of $94,880, according to a news release. ÂThe agreement with TSRI provides access to the instit uteÂs wo rld-class facilities and services and creates an ideal environment for the exploration of the kind of win-win collaborative partnerships that can lead to value-creating transactions and new company formation,ÂŽ said Kelly Smallridge, presi-dent and CEO of the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 13-19, 2016 BUSINESS A19 MOVING ON UPMichelle Phillips says her recent promotion to director of brand manage-ment at Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa is a dream come true. ÂI believe life is short, so you should work somewhere you love, and that could not be more true for me,ÂŽ said Ms. Phillips. ÂIt is truly an honor to be able to lead the branding efforts for the amazing Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa. Our team is one of the best in the busi-ness, as proven time and again by our rave guest reviews and industry acco-lades, because we maintain a distinctive and differentiating experience.ÂŽ Ms. Phillips has been instrumental in the success of the newly rebranded Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, as she started in 2013, just after the resort transitioned from a national brand (Ritz-Carlton) to an independent luxury resort. Since then, the resort has earned consecutive AAA Five Diamond recogni-tion and its first ever Forbes Five-Star award this year. Eau was one of only eight properties in the U.S. to achieve the Forbes Five-Star award in 2016 for both the resort and spa. Ms. Phillips is responsible for ensuring all aspects of the resortÂs market-ing and guest experience live up to its brand promises. ÂIÂm not sitting behind the desk all the time,ÂŽ she said. Ms. Phillips can be found anywhere at the resort checking to see the hotel is delivering its first class service and amenities promise. ÂWe evaluate it all and fix anything that needs to be fixed.ÂŽ To see the resort as a guest would, she became a guest herself to expe-rience making reservations, check-in, rooms and service. She wants to ensure that everything is just as it should be, she said. And Âshould beÂŽ means perfect and playful, too. ÂWeÂve strayed from the traditional a little,ÂŽ she said. ÂWeÂre a little more playful. We create goosebumps. We take service to the next level.ÂŽ Great care is taken to give great service, she said. For example, a front desk clerk learned sign language to make communication easier for a spe-cial needs guest. One of Ms. PhillipsÂ duties is teaching orientation classes for new hires. ÂItÂs one of my favorite things,ÂŽ she said. ÂItÂs an opportunity to meet new team members. TheyÂre like my chil-dren and IÂm so proud of their success.ÂŽ Ms. Phillips earned a bachelorÂs degree in communication for business and a masterÂs degree in integrated marketing and management communi-cations, both from Florida State Uni-versity. She concentrated her career on marketing in the hospitality industry, most recently working for Starwood Hotels & Resorts. Ms. Phillips was hired by Eau Palm Beach as a marketing manager and was promoted to assistant director of marketing and brand management in January 2015. A Wellington resident, Ms. Phillips enjoys spending time with her family on the weekend, including her husband and 4-year-old son. She also participates in Eau Palm Beach community initiatives, including Habitat for Humanity and AVDA. Michelle PhillipsAge: 36 Where I grew up: Born in New York but moved to Wellington at the age of 11 Where I live now: Wellington Education: MasterÂs degree from Florida State University in integrated marketing and management communi-cations What brought me to Florida: IÂve moved all throughout the state after graduating high school Â„ from col-lege in Tallahassee to Jacksonville to Orlando, then a 14-month stint in New Jersey (too cold!) and then back to Florida to Cape Coral and then finally to my hometown of Wellington, where my husband, Josh, and I have decided to plant our roots to be close to my family and allow our son, Conner, to grow up near one set of grandparents, aunt and uncles and cousins, My first job and what it taught me: At 15, I worked at a barbecue restaurant as a hostess and take-out cashier. I made (what I thought at the time) was Âso much moneyÂŽ Â„ my parents taught me the value of money and always made sure that I put half in the bank and half was for me. I was able to buy my first car on my own and was so proud. This practice is something that I continued throughout all of college. A career highlight: Two years after graduating with my masterÂs degree I had already dabbled in nonprofit work and event planning, but I knew I want-ed to go down a different path. I had just moved to Jacksonville with my now husband, Josh, and applied for an account manager position at a digital marketing agency that worked solely with hospitality clients. For the inter-view, I didnÂt have all the answers. I knew I was under-qualified. However, they believed in me. They saw past what I didnÂt know YET and were able to see what I could bring to the table and how they could begin to shape and mold me into the professional I am today. It was during my 3 years with this agency that I realized that a career in hospitality was exactly where I need-ed to be and I havenÂt looked back since. What I do when IÂm not working: Weekends are spent going on playdates with my 4-year-old son, Conner, and his friends, enjoying time with my husband, Josh, and our friends, getting together with our family, reading, kickboxing classesÂƒ and building Legos and play-ing Superheroes, of course. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: Find something you love. Something you really, really love. We spend more time at work than we do at home. I knew I loved market-ing but it took me some time before I realized I wanted to be in hospitality. Once I found that sweet spot I knew this is what I was destined to do. It is my passion. About mentors: One of the luxuries of working in this industry is you meet people from all walks of life. People that have had experiences that I could never even dream of. I make it a point to soak in whatever knowledge I can from those around me in order to better under-stand the business from all aspects and develop myself professionally.

MONEY & INVESTINGRight now, gold is not a pleasant market for the faint-heartedYou wouldnÂt think that there would be a connection between gold prices and Donald Trump, but it seems like truly all of the rules have changed during this political cycle. The presidential candi-dateÂs popularity swings are just one of the many forces that have decimated the price of the precious metal in the last couple of weeks, after an amazing run in the first three quarters of 2016. So what has caused the collapse of gold prices and what is in store for gold in the remaining months of this year? Up until a couple of weeks ago, gold has been one of the best performing assets in any class this year. Since Janu-ary, the price of the metal rose over 20 percent. There were numerous causes for this significant increase. First, Central Banks across the world slashed interest rates and flooded their respective economies with money to stimulate economic growth. Second, the Brexit vote, political uncertainty in the U.S. and various terrorist attacks increased risk factors. And finally, eco-nomic growth was stagnant for much of the world. Many of the above drivers are still in place, so many analysts are questioning why gold has fallen 8 percent in just a few trading days. The primary explanation has been expectation of a December Fed increase in short-term interest rates. A number of Fed officials have publicly stated that a rate increase is on the table for the December meeting. In fact, the market is now pricing in an over 60 percent chance of a rate increase by the end of the year. Gold prices fall when rates rise because investors can get a higher return in the bond or bank market than with gold. A second cause of goldÂs recent fall has been the lack of physical demand for the metal. The largest users of physi-cal gold, China and India, have had a decreased appetite for gold as their economies have demonstrated lacklus-ter growth. In addition, the development of the Chinese and Indian cap-ital market and banking sectors has siphoned away money that historically has purchased gold as a store of wealth. Instead, these people are now buying stocks and putting their money in a modernized banking system. And finally, the rise of Donald Trump and the uncertainty that surrounds his candidacy has increased the demand for gold. Many believe he is unpredictable and his policies could increase political and economic risks. People buy gold as a hedge against such uncertainties. And the future of gold prices? Many of the factors affecting the metal are uncertain. There is no guarantee that the Fed will raise rates in December. Other Central Banks will be just as unpredictable with respect to their stimulus programs as well. Physical gold demand in China and India tends to pick up as the Lunar New Year and Diwali, respectively, approach. But analysts dis-agree with regard to the demand this year. And with the U.S. election still weeks away, no one knows who will be president in 2017. Finally, there are still many economic and geopolitical uncertainties that will affect gold prices. A prime example is the recent problems affecting one of the largest banks in the world, Deutsche Bank. This global financial institution was thought to be on the verge of collapse at one point recently, which could have ushered in a second financial crisis. Wars in the Middle East and terrorist events across Europe and the U.S. also add risk and volatility to gold prices. So it looks like, for the time being at least, the only certainty with regard to gold prices is more uncertainty. Which means we will probably see the dramatic market moves we have seen in the past month repeat themselves in the weeks ahead as fund managers move in and out of the precious metal. This will not be a pleasant market for the faint-hearted.

stateÂs citrus industry in just the last five years has amounted to $4.5 billion, according to researchers in the Depart-ment of Food and Economics at the Uni-versity of Florida. Since Florida and Sao Paulo, Brazil, produce more than 80 percent of the worldÂs orange juice, strategies to treat it are widely varying and aggressive. And even the federal government is trying to help. U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, a District 16 Republican from Sarasota, sponsored the Emergency Citrus Disease Response Act and helped move it through the U.S. House last week, which could mean sig-nificantly more finan-cial support for farm operations, allowing those who own at least 50 percent of the trees in a grove to deduct the full cost of plant-ing new or replacing damaged trees from their taxes, through 2025. But first it must pass the Senate. ÂHelp is on the way to FloridaÂs growers,ÂŽ he told Florida Weekly. ÂWith projections for this upcoming season estimates to be the worst in 50 years, itÂs critical Congress show citrus farmers they are not alone in their fight against this bacte-rial disease. ÂThe House acted swiftly this month to pass my bill, and IÂm hopeful the Senate will do the same in November.ÂŽ That would be nice, especially for growers like Frank Green, a born-and-raised farmer from Lee County whose wife, two sons and two daughters-in-law are all in it together, come hell, high-water or psyllids. Like other citrus growers big and small, heÂs tried every approach possible to slow the disease in his family groves Â„ and thatÂs a costly process. ÂWhat itÂs doing to us, weÂre getting good money for our product but weÂre spending it all trying to grow it,ÂŽ Mr. Green explains. ÂWe spend close to $2,000 an acre just trying to grow the fruit. So as long as your production is halfway decent, weÂre able to keep our head above water.ÂŽ Keeping production up is the key. Florida farmers in general take a different approach than those in Sao Paulo, where aggressively rooting out trees with green-ing, then planting new ones and trying to keep off the psyllid with heavy spraying is the standard approach, the University of FloridaÂs researchers say. Here, farmers have tried that too, especially in the huge corporate-owned groves where farms can afford to plant new trees and wait for them to grow and finally begin producing, a several-year process. ÂBig growers can take their chances on new root stock, new science, and they look for a silver bullet to get them back into (big production),ÂŽ explains Mr. Green.But the smaller farmer, in particular, fights back with a process called Âenhanced foliar nutrition,ÂŽ which keeps the trees fed even when the bacteria stops their ability to feed themselves, greatly slowing the speed of affliction. ÂWith greening now, we know what the organism is, we know how it affects the tree, and we have some mitigation tech-niques,ÂŽ explains Gene McAvoy, county extension director and regional vegetable agent for the University of FloridaÂs Insti-tute of Food and Agricultural Science, based in Hendry County. He works with farmers in Collier, Lee and Hendry coun-ties. In Hendry County, for example, with 10 million citrus trees (the most in Florida) and about 40,000 residents (one of the smallest county populations), life has got-ten harder. The same is true in other counties. ÂWhat happens is, the bacteria plugs up the vascular system of the tree, prevent-ing it from feeding itself, so we can feed it,ÂŽ he says. ÂFoliage nutrition has slowed the decline.ÂŽ But the decline is still precipitous, says Mr. Green. And deeply frustrating. ÂJust before the fruit gets ready to be harvested, the three turns loose of it and it hits the ground,ÂŽ he says. ÂAnother thing that happens: The tree will produce an abnormal amount of real small fruit. So with that lack of production, thereÂs a cumulative effect, and itÂs made it dif-ficult. We had groves producing 600 to 700 boxes per acre. Now weÂre fortunate if weÂre in the 400-box range.ÂŽ When farmers practice foliage nutrition, they have to keep any weeds or plants out of the groves, so the trees wonÂt have to compete for the nutrition they add. And thatÂs a lot of work. The Green family does everything itself, except harvest, when they bring in crews. Families that canÂt do that have a harder time, he figures. And the loss in production also affects workers up and down the long produc-tion line of Florida fruit: When produc-tion drops, jobs may be at risk for pick-ers, haulers, packers, processors, grove employees and grove managers, too. ÂWeÂre getting to the point where it takes a certain amount of product to keep a juice plant open, and we hope we have enough,ÂŽ says Mr. McAvoy. ÂThe big ones are Southern Gardens Citrus in Clewis-ton, Peace River Packing and Tropicana, around Bradenton.ÂŽ The engineering and mechanics of the systems are designed to run more, not less. ÂTo give you an idea: In the heyday 15 years ago, once they started processing juice around the end of October, theyÂd run those plants 24/7 until June, with one day of scheduled maintenance periodi-cally. ÂBut now they can only run for several weeks, starting in the morning and for 10 or 12 hours. They do that for about 10 days, then shut down.ÂŽ Meanwhile, with lifestyle and livelihoods at stake, not to mention the expec-tations of orange juice drinkers from sea to shining sea, new approaches are being tried all the time. ÂScientists are looking to breed varieties that might be genetically resistant,ÂŽ says Mr. McAvoy. ÂFor example, scientists in Texas have taken a gene from a spinach plant and introduced it into (citrus root stock) and it seems to effect the bacteria.ÂŽ But it isnÂt just that simple.ÂIs the public ready for a genetically modified orange tree, even if itÂs some-thing we eat already, like spinach?ÂŽ he asks. ÂAnd of course that requires government approval, and that testing and approval process can take up to 10 years.ÂŽ But he remains an optimist.ÂThere have been hundreds of millions of dollars pumped into this effort. Bril-liant scientific minds are working on it. I have a lot of faith in that.ÂŽ Q GREENFrom page 18 COURTESY PHOTOThe Asian citrus psyllid eats citrus leaves, especially those of young trees, leaving a tree with a deadly bacterium that causes greening.

Science Center exhibition offers lesson in anatomy BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@Â” oridaweekly.comEveryone has one, but to most of us itÂs a mystery. The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium will help clear up some of those questions we have about ourselves with the new exhibition, ÂOur Body: The Universe Within,ÂŽ which debuts on Sat-urday, Oct. 22. This isnÂt an exhibition of artist renderings or plastic molds of organs. This exhibition includes more than 200 speci-mens of real human body parts, from the skin to the core, your heart and lungs. These specimens and organs were pre-served using a process known as poly-mer impregnation where body fluids are replaced by liquid plastic. Guests will examine each of 11 major body systems Âin a concise, factual and dignified mannerÂŽ: Muscular, skeleton, nervous, digestive, respiratory, defense, reproductive, urinary, circulatory, endo-crine and hematologic. TheyÂll see first-hand how it functions and relates to and works with other systems. These sys-tems have one purpose: Your survival. The nature of the exhibition may sound a little overwhelming because these are real body parts from real peo-ple, but the exhibition is considered appropriate for all ages. Both the Jupiter Medical Center and Palm Healthcare Foundation Inc. also have supported bringing Our Body to the Science Cen-ter, because of its great educational value. The exhibition was developed and provided by the Anatomical Sci-ences & Technologies Foundation in Hong Kong. For more info, visit www.ourbodytheuniversewithin.net.

Palm Beach Dramaworks is providing an opportunity to fill that gap on their patronsÂ cultural checklist when it opens its 17th season this month. The 1961 drama dissects the inner lives of lost souls in the fourth-rate coastal hotel Costa Verde in the fetid Mexican jungle in the 1940s. Each person is desperately seeking emotional salvation in meaningful connections with other people. Among the wildly diverse collision of people is the alcoholic disgraced ex-min-ister T. Lawrence Shannon, now reduced to leading tour groups. ThereÂs also the hotel owner, the lusty irreverent and recently widowed Maxine; the too-gen-tle-for-this-world spinster artist Hannah; her doddering 96-year-old father Nono, who is finishing writing an epic poem in his head; the steamy 16-year-old in heat Charlotte, who persistently tempts Shan-non; and the nominal head of the tour group, the morally judgmental and suspi-cious Miss Fellowes. A strange cross of naturalism with slightly surreal moments of symbolism, poetry and crassness, ÂIguanaÂŽ is a chal-lenging play, said William Hayes, Drama-worksÂ producing artistic director, who chose this piece as the only one he will direct this season. Despite the carnality of Shannon, Maxine and Charlotte, almost every character Every once in a while, one has the chance to glimpse a treasure from the past, or even to own it. Then, discovering the stories about the artist make the piece even more fascinating and valuable. Visi-tors to the current exhibition of antique engravings, etchings and lithographs at the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens in West Palm Beach will find a wealth of art and history that dates back as far as the Renaissance. It is also a great opportunity to own a piece of history while supporting the gardens as the entire collection has been BY BILL HIRSCHMANFlorida Theater On Stage BY KATIE DEITSkdeits@Â” oridaweekly.com LetÂ’s get BotanicalPHOTO BY AUDREY ELOISE ROBERTSKaren Steele, executive director of the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens, in one of the galleries featuring the engravings and etch ings.

Paid: $20 The Skinny: I really wanted this to be a Madame Alexander Nina Ballerina. Like Nina, this 17-inch doll has a blond wig and is made of hard plastic, a material that became popular after World War II. Like Nina, this doll is exquisitely costumed in satin and netting. But most Alexander dolls are tagged and marked, and this one has no markings that I can find. American Character made its Sweet Sue line of dolls that look very much like the Alexanders, so this may be one of those, though they also generally were marked. Either way, a mystery is something that keeps me on my toes Â„ just like Nina. Q Â„ Scott Simmons THE FIND: If the devastation of Hurricane Matthew teaches us anything, itÂs that nothing lasts forever. I thought about that as I prepared my house for the storm, hanging storm panels and screwing down awnings. I moved GrandmaÂs Moorcroft pottery lamp Â„ she always called it Âthe good lampÂŽ Â„ from its perch atop an antique chest to a safer spot on the bedroom floor. I could do that much. As I write this I remember the stories my family shared with me of storms past. My Grandpa Simmons weathered the 1928 hurricane in the brand-new Pahokee High School building. The women and children took shelter in interior hallways, he said, and the men spent the night of the storm mopping the rainwater that blew in around the windows. He was 21 years old and witness to a disaster that claimed thousands of lives. During the 1947 hurricane, my Uncle Thurmond Knight, who had rented a house in Palm Beach for the summer, thought he would be smart and park his brand-new Cadillac along A1A so it would not be flooded. He stepped outside after the storm, and his car looked fine until he walked around and saw the side facing east. The beach sand had blasted all the paint down to the raw sheet metal. My motherÂs family moved to Fort Myers in 1958. When Hurricane Donna roared through in 1960, GrandmaÂs Moorcroft lamp got tucked in a closet, along with all the drapes; the piano and oriental carpet were placed on blocks in the event of flooding. Grandpa went down to the boat basin to check on his vessel during the calm as the eye of the storm passed, and Grandma fretted about his being out. As it happened, there was no flooding in East Fort Myers, and my grandparents lived another 40 years to tell the story of how the Coleman lantern they used to light the house burned so brightly the neighbors thought their power had been restored before anyone elseÂs. As for the Moorcroft lamp, I hope it survives this and all other storms. But if not, I have the memory of this treasure and the pleasure of having owned it. No storm can take that away. Q Late 1940s hard plastic ballerina doll SCOTT SIMMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis hard plastic doll probably was made by Madame Alexander or American Character in the late 1940s or early Â’50s.

The society will offer a new lecture series that includes nationally recog-nized historians Joseph Ellis, Gordon Wood, Ron Chernow, David McCullough and Lynne Cheney. The program, titled ÂThe Founders and Us: The Relevance of Our Origins,ÂŽ begins Jan. 5. ÂThe Founders and Us: The Relevance of our OriginsÂŽ was the inspiration of Four Arts member and trustee Gay Hart Gaines. ÂI believe in the absolute neces-sity of 21st-century Americans learning about our countryÂs founding fathers, present at AmericaÂs creation,ÂŽ Ms. Gaines said. ÂI wanted to address the ever widening gaps in our knowledge of AmericaÂs unique history and what it means to be an American.ÂŽ Each program will include a onehour lecture followed by an interactive Q&A led by Robert Watson, an author and Lynn University professor who is a nationally recognized expert on the American presidency. Dr. Watson is a frequent media commentator on CNN, FoxÂs ÂSpecial Report with Brit Hume,ÂŽ MSNBC, USA Today, The New York Times and the BBC. Tickets are $250 for the five-part series, and now are available for pur-chase. To buy the series, call 805-8562 or visit the box office at 2 Four Arts Plaza, Palm Beach. Seating is limited and advance reservations are required. The schedule is as follows: Joseph J. Ellis Â„ 10 a.m. Jan. 5. The author of 11 books, Joseph J. Ellis received the Pulitzer Prize for ÂFound-ing Brothers: the Revolutionary Genera-tionÂŽ and won the National Book Award for ÂAmerican Sphinx, a biography of Thomas Jefferson.ÂŽ His in-depth chron-icle of the life of our first president, ÂHis Excellency: George Washington,ÂŽ was a New York Times best-seller. His latest book, ÂThe Quartet: Orchestrat-ing the Second American Revolution, 1783-1789,ÂŽ was released in spring 2015. Gordon Wood Â„ 10 a.m. Jan. 12. Gordon S. Wood is Alva O. Way University Professor Emeritus at Brown Univer-sity. He received his bachelorÂs degree from Tufts University and his doctorate from Harvard University. He taught at Harvard and the University of Michigan before joining the faculty at Brown in 1969. He is the author of many works, including ÂThe Creation of the Ameri-can Republic, 1776-1787ÂŽ (1969), which won the Bancroft Prize and the John H. Dunning Prize in 1970; ÂThe Radicalism of the American RevolutionÂŽ (1992), which won the Pulitzer Prize for Histo-ry and the Ralph Waldo Emerson Prize in 1993; and ÂThe Americanization of Benjamin FranklinÂŽ (2004) which was awarded the Julia Ward Howe Prize by the Boston Authors Club in 2005. His book ÂRevolutionary Characters: What Made the Founders DifferentÂŽ was pub-lished in 2006, and ÂThe Purpose of the Past: Reflections on the Uses of HistoryÂŽ was published in 2008. His volume in the Oxford History of the United States, titled ÂEmpire of Liberty: A History of the Early Republic, 1789-181 5ÂŽ (2009), was given the Association of American Publishers Award for History and Biog-raphy in 2009, the American History Book Prize by the New York Historical Society in 2010, and the Society of the Cincinnati History Prize in 2010. Ron Chernow Â„ 10 a.m. Feb. 9. Ron ChernowÂs ÂThe House of MorganÂŽ won the National Book Award as the best nonfiction book of 1990, while ÂThe WarburgsÂŽ won the prestigious George S. Eccles Prize for the best business book of 1993 and was cited by the Amer-ican Library Association as one of the yearÂs 10 best works. ChernowÂs biog-raphies of John D. Rockefeller (ÂTitan,ÂŽ 1998), Alexander Hamilton (ÂAlexander Hamilton,ÂŽ 2004) and George Washing-ton (ÂWashington: A Life,ÂŽ 2010) have received praise and awards, including the Pulitzer Prize and the American History Book Prize, endowing him with the honorary title of American Histo-rian Laureate. Mr. Chernow was the historical adviser to the Tony Award-winning musical ÂHamilton,ÂŽ which was inspired by his best-selling biography. David McCullough Â„ 10 a.m. March 9. David McCullough is twice winner of the Pulitzer Prize, twice winner of the National Book Award, and has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nationÂs highest civilian award.

ÂWhat they have in common is the choice of living an isolated life,ÂŽ Mr. Hayes said. But during the course of the play, they gingerly take the Ârisk and connect with other human beings. Hopefully, this will start a conversation of what the ben-efits can be, the hope of a more fulfilled life despite the risks.ÂŽ To a degree, the sexual facet is a reflection of them desperately reaching out. Shannon, in particular, Âis in such a des-perate place that he has a physical rela-tionship with anything he can,ÂŽ Mr. Hayes said. Yet neither he nor anyone else has much of an emotional connection other than Hannah with Nono. In fact, the play closes with some sense of salvation, unlike what happens to the Wingfields and Blanche Dubois. Shortly before the original production opened on Broadway, Williams told The New York Times, ÂI didnÂt feel like writing a Âblack play.ÂÂŽ He said the theme of the play is Âhow to live with dignity after despair.ÂŽ Some of this, Mr. Hayes believes, reflects the tumult in WilliamsÂ life at the time, although he spent much of his life in that state. ÂAs a director, you know that a playwright writes on a subconscious level as well as a conscious level, working out their demons, sorting through their own emotional turmoil which is very much what is going on in ÂNight of the Iguana,ÂÂŽ Mr. Hayes said. Among the major directing challenges was that Williams increasingly explored more theatrical metaphorical facets in his somewhat realis-tic environments. For instance, Williams threads through a fam-ily of German tourists who are both stereo-typically comical but also judgmentally threatening since they represent the rise of fascism on the other side of the world. The cast has several familiar faces. Shan-non is essayed by Tim Altmeyer, a northern Floridian who made a strong impression in 2014 when he played the man wanting to reclaim a Parisian apartment from the current occupants in DramaworksÂ ÂMy Old Lady.ÂŽ Maxine, the part originated by Bette Davis on stage and Ava Gardner in film, will be played by Kim Cozort Kay, one of the frequent leading ladies at the Caldwell Theatre and who has been working at Dra-maworks and other venues since she returned from helping run a North Carolina theater. Hannah is played by Katie Cunningham, a New York City-based actress who has worked several times at SarasotaÂs Asolo Rep. Nono is undertaken by Dramaworks veteran Dennis Creaghan and the judgmental Miss Fellowes will be Irene Adjan, with other local actors in supporting parts including David Nail and Brian Varela. The atmospheric setting of three rooms in the mangy hotel fronting on a commu-nal veranda is by Michael Amico, whose photo-realistic designs for shows such as ÂPicnicÂŽ and ÂTallyÂs FollyÂŽ have been a favorite of Dramaworks audiences and who has recently come on board as pro-duction manager. A large cast, complex technical issues and a difficult script start the season off as a challenge, but Mr. Hayes welcomes it. Speaking of another project, he said, ÂI think itÂs important initially to make big splashes and to think big. I donÂt think you accom-plish anything unless you set your sights really, really high.ÂŽ Q Â„ Bill Hirschman is editor of Florida Theater On Stage. Read him at www.florida theateronstage.com.

But donÂt act on them until you feel sure that youÂve been told everything you need to know to support your move. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Be careful. You might be probing just a little too deeply into a situation that you find singularly suspicious. The facts you seek will begin to emerge at a later time.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Relationships need a fresh infusion of tender, loving care. Avoid potential problems down the line. Stay close to loved ones as the month draws to a close. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Aspects favor relationships, whether platonic, professional or per-sonal. On another note: Be a mite more thrifty. You might need some extra money very soon. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) This is the absolute right time to let those often-hidden talents shine their brightest. YouÂll impress some very important people with what you can do. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Mars, your ruling planet, begins a journey that will open up a growing number of pos-sibilities. Put that surging Arian energy to good use and explore it to your heartÂs content. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is the time to prepare for a career move coming up next month. Update your resume. Get those proposals in shape. And donÂt forget to buff up that Bovine self-confidence. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your Gemini instincts will guide you to the right people who might be able to help you get over that career impasse that has been holding you back. Expect to make changes. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) YouÂre getting closer, but you still have a ways to go before reaching your goals. Continue to stay focused, no matter how difficult it can be for the easily distracted Moon Child. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Your Leonine pride might be keeping you from getting to the source of a disturb-ing situation. DonÂt be shy about asking questions. Remember: Information is power. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) ItÂs a good time to shake up your tidy little world by doing something sponta-neous, like taking an unplanned trip or going on a mad shopping spree.

B12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 13-19, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYdonated to the organization as a fund-raiser. The framed artworks range in price from $100 to $500. Prior to the invention of photography in the 19th century, images were documented by artists, some of whom also were bota-nists. For instance, one of two women artists in the exhibition is Madeleine Fran-oise Basseporte (French, 1701-1780). Exhibition curator Cynthia Inklebarger explains that the artist was appointed the fruit and flower painter to King Louis XV and was dispatched to Versailles to record the collection of animals and plants that King Louis XV and Madame de Pompa-dour had assembled. Madame Basseporte also taught flower painting to the princesses and was the official painter for the jardin du roi in Paris during the first years of the reign of King Louis XVI. ÂHer teacher and the prior artist for King Louis XV was Claude Aubriet (1665-1742) whose etchings are pictured below hers in the gallery,ÂŽ Ms. Inklebarger point-ed out. ÂThe other female artist is Augusta Withers, who was English and lived in the mid-1800s,ÂŽ Ms. Inklebarger says. ÂShe was appointed the flower painter to Queen Victoria. We did have four etchings but we only have two left as we sold two.ÂŽ In the main gallery, she gestures to some prints framed in burl with brass rosettes in all four corners and beautiful black mattes. ÂThese are architectural renderings by Antoine Desgodetz (French, 1653-1728), who was an architect and an artist,ÂŽ Ms. Inklebarger says. ÂKing Louis XIV dis-patched him to go to Rome to record, sketch and measure all of the ancient Roman edifices. When he came back, he published a book called ÂAncient Edifices of Rome.Â Then architects at the time used the book as reference to design buildings. It remained an authoritative reference work on ancient architecture until the end of the 18th century. Prints from this publi-cation are rare.ÂŽ ÂThe ones with the marquetry frames are the premier pieces in the collection,ÂŽ says Karen Steele, executive director of ANSG, who points out a series of botani-cals. ÂThese engravings are from the Renaissance era,ÂŽ adds Ms. Inklebarger. ÂThey consist of floral prints from a book pub-lished for the purpose of medical botany by Pietro Andrea Mattioli (Italian, 1501-1577). Giorgio Liberale (Italian,1527-1579) illustrated the flora, then Wolfgang Mey-erpeck (German, 1505-1578) created the etchings in copper.ÂŽ Another set of 12 hand-colored engravings is incredibly detailed. ÂThese works from the Netherlands were produced in the 1600s,ÂŽ says Ms. Inklebarger. ÂWhat is so unique about these is that in many of the botanicals, they included landscapes and scenery. Some of the botanicals are floating, surreal-like above the landscape and each botanical name is in Latin, mostly in scrolls under-neath the illustration.ÂŽ Next to these is a series of engraved and hand-painted Italian crests and coats of arms. ÂThey used a lot of metallic paint Â„ silvers and golds,ÂŽ says Ms. Inkle-barger. ÂThey are stunning and look like they were just produced today. They took great care of this collection because there is no sun damage, it has really been well-preserved.ÂŽ ÂI want to get it across to the public that, yes, these are from books, but they arenÂt from books that were off a print-ing press the way most people know how printing is done today,ÂŽ she says. There are three types of printing in the exhibition: engravings, etchings and lithographs. The first two (called intaglio) are created on copper plates where an artist transfers an illustration to the plate. Engravings are carved into the copper with a tool called a Âburin,ÂŽ and the ink pools in the indentations. When a paper is pressed onto the plate, the ink transfers onto the paper. With the etching technique, the plate is coated with an acid-resistant material called Âground.ÂŽ The artist uses a sharp tool to incise the image. When the plate is immersed in acid, the area not cov-ered with ground is removed. Ink is then applied to the plate and printed on paper. Most intaglio prints are created with both engraving and etching techniques. On these originals, one can see an inden-tation of the plate around the edge of the illustration. ÂThese prints are all from copper plates. The color engravings and etchings are all hand painted. The lithographs were created in color,ÂŽ Ms. Inklebarger says. Lithography is a process that was invented in the late 18th century and uses the principle of oil repelling water. An image is drawn onto a stone (usually limestone) with a material called ÂtuscheÂ or a litho crayon. The stone is moistened with water and then inked. Where there is water, the ink will not adhere. Paper is placed on the stone and both are pulled through a press. Each color requires an additional pass through the press and the paper must be carefully registered. ÂEach color is done on a different stone,ÂŽ explains Ms. Inklebarger. ÂIf you had a pink ink and a red ink, it would take two different stones and the same piece of paper is put on. With many different colors, it could take 25 passes of one piece of paper to create the piece.ÂŽ David Miller, a long-time board member since Ann NortonÂs death in 1982 and now an honorary advisory board member, facilitated the donation of the 300 works of art. Mr. Miller, who resides in Atlantis, is a well-known, respected authority and appraiser of art and antiques. ÂDiana and Lowry Bell always went to Florence,ÂŽ Mr. Miller explains. ÂDiana was Italian and Lowry was an architect. They are good friends of ours.ÂŽ The pair, who lived in Palm BeachÂs lakeside estate section until 2013, amassed an outstanding collection of prints. ÂDianaÂs daughter, Diana Greco, was in the print business in New York in the late Â80s and Â90s,ÂŽ Mr. Miller says. ÂAfter she married, she put the prints in an expensive storage for 10 years.ÂŽ Mr. Miller reached out to her.ÂDavid spoke to her about donating them to us so we would be able to do an exhibition of this nature and then 100 per-cent of the proceeds would come to Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens to support our educational programs, infrastructure and garden programs,ÂŽ Ms. Steele said. Many of the pieces are botanicals, so itÂs a perfect fit with the gardensÂ mission. ÂI asked Kate and Robert Waterhouse to chair the exhibition,ÂŽ Mr. Miller says. ÂAnd they have brought attention to the exhibi-tion. This is a chance to own something historic.ÂŽ ÂThe Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens is such a unique place. There are only four or five places in the country where the artistsÂ homes and studios are preserved and open to the public. It is an oasis in the middle of the city,ÂŽ he says. ÂAnn wanted it to be a public place. The new group of directors has a really good chance of ful-filling that.ÂŽ Q BOTANICALFrom page 1 Botanicals, Antique Engravings & Lithographs>> When: Through Oct. 30. >> Where: Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens, 2051 S.

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 13-19, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY VINOThe question of vintage: What year is it, anyway?For many people, one of the most confusing things about wine apprecia-tion is all that business about vintages. Good years, bad years, even mediocre years Â„ itÂs tough to keep all that infor-mation straight in your head. Besides, does it really matter? IÂve found that thereÂs no better way to learn vintages than simply letting nature take its course. Every year, trail-ing the calendar by a few months to several years, each new vintage comes through the pipeline, bringing its own surprises and teaching us its particu-lar lessons through tasting. ItÂs a good opportunity to make a few points about vintage and its place in wine apprecia-tion. Live through a few vintages, learn them in your glass, and before long you realize that you do have a lot of that info in your head. But first, letÂs tick off a few random Âbullet pointsÂŽ about some ways that wine lovers use Â„ and abuse Â„ infor-mation about vintages. Q Vintage, the year shown on the bottle of most fine wines, reflects the year in which the grapes were picked. Since wine grapes are an agricultural product, weather conditions can have a significant effect on the wine. For example, a summer of extreme heat in Europe can result in very ripe fruit, which may not necessarily be a bless-ing, as overripe grapes tend to make fat, lower-acid wines. Q All weather, like all politics, is local. One regionÂs terrible vintage may be decent in another and excellent in a third. A lackluster year in Napa may be very good in Bordeaux, or vice versa. Indeed, when we mention intense sum-mer heat in Europe, remember that weÂre talking only about a certain region. Maybe that same growing season was excellent in South Africa, and ÂdifficultÂŽ in much of California and Down Under. We need to be specific. Q Vintage quality works only as a broad generalization. Some producers make excellent wines in ÂpoorÂŽ vintages, and a few make stinkers in ÂcanÂt missÂŽ years. Moreover, the storm or frost that devastated vines in one village may have missed its neighbor. ItÂs rare to have a vintage so poor that consumers have to write it off entirely. The 1997 vintage in Bordeaux comes close to this mark, when even the prestigious First Growth wines were very disappointing. But now and then we can find value by cherry-picking better wines from vintages that conventional wisdom says to avoid. Trust your own taste buds more than vintage charts. Famous wine profession-als like Robert Parker may highly rate a vintage that produced big, strong and ripe wines in France, which drives up prices. But what if you donÂt share his affection for bold, concentrated wines? There are only two kinds of wines: the ones you like and the ones you donÂt. Here are some we recently liked very much. Q Les Dauphins Ctes du Rhne Rserve Blanc NV ($11) Â„ This unique blend of traditional white grapes from the Rhone Valley offers typical Viognier floral aromas, with a palate of white flowers, medium body and refreshing acidity. WW 89. Q Domaine Bousquet Rose 2015 ($9) Â„ French name, Argentine wine. A delicate blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon, thereÂs raspberry and cherry flavors with an interesting hint of earth-iness, unusual in a ros wine. WW 89. Q Kendall Jackson Grand Reserve Merlot 2013 ($26) Â„ Deeply colored with a very pleasant mineral nose and deep black fruit flavors show the result of 17 months aging in mostly French oak. WW 91-92. Q Kendall Jackson VintnerÂs Reserve Zinfandel ($17) Â„ Black earth, red fruit and a bit of pepper. The bold fruit and full body make this a Zinfandel thatÂs very true to type. WW 90.Ask the Wine Whisperer Q. IÂve seen professional wine critics put their noses all the way down inside a glass and take some sniffs. Why do wine tasters smell wine? Â„ Robert, Fort MyersA. The aromas of a wine can give you a good hint about how it will taste Â„ even where it was made and how old it might be. Besides, 85 percent of your sense of taste is actually smell. Most often, a wineÂs aromas (or ÂbouquetÂŽ or ÂnoseÂŽ) indicate what weÂre going to taste, but sometimes the taste will be very different. Q Â„ Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Gastropub coming to Mall at Wellington Green jan NORRISjan@jannorris.com Chef Seth Kirschbaum is overseeing a new gastropub in the Mall at Wellington Green in Wellington, set to open in midto late December. ÂItÂs a theater and farm-to-table concept by Paragon Entertainment They own a dozen or so theaters in the coun-try, and are opening a theater and farm-to-table concept next door with a b rewpub,ÂŽ he said. Mr. Kirschbaum spoke to us on his way to Newport News, Va., where heÂll open a similar one there for the company first. Cask and Shaker in Wellington will have its own entrance outside the luxe theater so it can act as a standalone Â„ patrons need not go to the movies to dine there. ÂThere is going to be a definitely elevated menu, with a full craft cocktail menu. IÂm friends with Copperpoint Brewing and Barrel of Monks WeÂll have a ton of craft local beers,ÂŽ he said. The chef known for his vegan and vegetarian menus at Darbster in West Palm Beach will focus on locally sourced foods. ÂIÂm working on getting a smoker installed, and weÂll have smoked beef and fish. WeÂre making ceviche, and may even do some sushi. There will be a kids menu, and plenty of gluten-free and a vegan option or two.ÂŽ ItÂs in Wellington, so Âthe menu will be more uppercrust. But itÂs also for families. Chefs always say this, but I mean it: There will be something for everyone.ÂŽ Shareables will be a big part of the menu. ÂWeÂll have fewer entrees. A lot of hand-helds. IÂm also working on boards: a charcuterie board, a cheese board, a Mediterranean board. ÂItÂs how I ate my way around New York and loved it: Everybody got togeth-er and ate, sharing a board, with no other diversions. I want to bring that social vibe back.ÂŽ Other theaters that have restaurants attached donÂt put enough emphasis on the food, he said. ÂI always missed the food component. I love going to the movies. But IÂd always eat elsewhere and then go to the movies. This is going to be the first chef-concept theater restaurant in the county.ÂŽ HeÂll work with Chase Walton formerly of Tap 42 in Boca Raton. ÂHe was the overall operations manager and brings a lot of heavy restaurant opera-tions experience. You can be a great chef and great operator, but if you donÂt have that restaurant experience, it wonÂt work.ÂŽ Mr. Kirschbaum said one reason this is a good fit is his love of movies, dating to his Brooklyn childhood. ÂOn the weekend, my father would take my brother and me to breakfast, then we saw two or three movies in a row. I never saw dad during the week, because he was working, so this was a special time. My favorite memories.ÂŽ He wants this to be a positive experience for moviegoers. ÂAt this theater, you can buy food next door, and take it in, but you wonÂt be interrupted by a server. There will be no service during a movie. That was a huge deal-breaker for me. IÂm not one of those guys who even talks during the movie.ÂŽNewkÂ’s coming to LegacyA Jackson, Miss., based eatery opens in Legacy Place this week. NewkÂs Eatery is described as a fast-casual restaurant known for Âbold flavors, fresh-ness, and creativity in the kitchen.ÂŽ ThatÂs from Pat Tracy one of the local family members who is franchising the restaurant here.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 13-19, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15The Dish: The Three Peat The Place: Heroes Sports Bar & Grill, 224 N. Third St., Lantana; 328-9909 or www.heroeslantana.com. The Price: $10 The Details: When I was growing up, we always heard about Pete and Repeat. But I canÂt ever recall having heard of Three Peat. No matter, because this substantial sandwich is one that could be easily repeated on a next visit to Heroes, which opened in the former Grumpy Grouper/BennyÂs space near the tracks off Lan-tana Road. ItÂs basic enough: Grilled chicken topped with sauted onions and peppers, plus bacon and jack/cheddar cheese. DonÂt tell your cardiologist about this one, but itÂs a tasty combination. The chicken was perfectly grilled until tender and the tomatoes that accompa-nied were sweet and juicy. My friend and I also enjoyed an appetizer of the drunken shrimp, served in a ÂsignatureÂŽ spicy sauce ($14). Q Â„ Sc ott Simmons J oseph Bonavita Jr. is only 23, but heÂs an old soul when it comes to cooking. He has always felt right at home in the kitch-en, he said, perhaps because he grew up in a big Sicilian family in Smithtown, N.Y. There was no shortage of good cooks in the family, including his parents and grandparents. He worked right beside them, soaking up decades of knowl-edge and skills. On weekends, he went fishing with his father on Long Island Sound. So fish has always been a key ingredient in Bonavi-ta meals. Any time the young chef cooked, the reviews were rave. ÂMy family was always blown away by what I made,ÂŽ said Chef Bonavita, execu-tive chef at 50 Ocean and BostonÂs on the Beach in Delray since July 4. ÂThey said this is what I should do and I stuck with it. But in Sicilian families, you go to college and get a degree, so I went to Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Chicago. I made amazing connections there.ÂŽ While going to school, he worked in well-known area restaurants. He had an apprenticeship at Alinea with legend-ary chef Grant Achatz, who gave him a sense of modern, minimalist, molecular cuisine. After living in Chicago for two years, he was offered two full-time positions there. But Chef Bonavita wanted to get back home to New York, where he became a sous chef at chef Todd EnglishÂs flagship restaurant, Olives. Later, he apprenticed and staged at Per Se and Le Bernardin, then worked under chef Graham Elliot at Primary Food & Drink as sous chef. When his family moved to Florida a few years ago, he joined them. And before Chef BonavitaÂs beloved grandfa-ther died, he shared his secret recipe for seafood salad, a family favorite. ÂThat was one of the first things I was allowed to make as a child,ÂŽ Chef Bonavita said. ÂOnly my dad and I have the recipe now.ÂŽ While he doesnÂt make his grandfatherÂs seafood salad at 50 Ocean, Chef Bonavita said all the high-quality, local produce and sustainable seafood has given him an opportunity to showcase his talents. ÂAt 50 Ocean, we specialize in ingredient-driven, global cuisine,ÂŽ Chef Bonavi-ta said. HeÂs working on a new menu, but the current selection includes customer favorites like blue crab-crusted grouper with green bean potato hash, pan-seared snapper, FloridaÂs Jackman Ranch New York strip and buffalo ribeye. One of the chefÂs favorite resources is the restaurantÂs new high-tech hydro-ponic tower gardens in the dining room. They provide herbs, fruits, vegetables and microgreens for drinks, specials and garnishes. He encourages guests to pick something from the towers and taste it. ÂThe taste is incredible,ÂŽ he said. ÂYou canÂt get fresher. We use ingredients from the tower every day. It grows basil leaves the size of a hand.ÂŽ While most people are familiar with BostonÂs on the Beach, Chef Bonavita said he wants everyone to also get to know the fine restaurant upstairs Â„ 50 Ocean. The casually elegant eatery offers panoramic ocean views through a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows, and cuisine with local influences. Chef Bonavita may not be able to see the ocean from the kitchen, but all he has to do is look around the corner to see the ocean. ÂThat is a view that will never get old,ÂŽ he said. Wedding bells are in Chef BonavitaÂs future. He and his fiance, Alli, are plan-ning a March wedding.
