Call 844-447-4687 or visit COMMENTARYThe greatest show on EarthWho doesnt love a circus? And what would a circus be without a side show? Well, we dont have to wonder. In this case, the circus is the 2016 presidential campaign. If the star attractions fail to please, there are always the sideshows featuring their political surrogates. What they offer is almost as fantastical as the ladies and gents making the big bucks inside the tent. This is the Greatest Show on Earth,Ž a cornucopia of mind-bending perfor-mance art „ but of a political sort. It has the chills, thrills and occasional screams of horror a genuine circus inspires. It offers high-flying trapeze work, politi-cally dangerous and without a net. Anon-ymous maestros work the levers behind the tent flaps. They assume everything will go according to plan, until it doesnt; and then chaos ensues. Inside the Big Top, the ringmasters crack their whips. They struggle to keep order. There no longer is a coherent process to rehearse the star perform-ers. Civility is abandoned. Social media makes everyone a communications combatant. The debates are a counter-feit of the real thing, as remote from the serious issues facing the nation as a circus is from reality on the street. It is clown time. Meanwhile, the donkey and elephants herded on the shows periphery are in full stampede, running this way and that, toward some ambiguous destination. They know not where the calamitous race will end. Even though Americans delight in the spectacle, they look ner-vously about for the nearest exit. They have no confidence in the direction they are led. They are hypnotized by the absurdity of it all, stuck in a passive state of stupidity. They are oblivious to the political hacks who take advantage of their communal distraction. With eyes wide open, the electoral system is robbed of legitimacy. The assault of cynicism threatens to bankrupt the entire process. The media-induced trance is part of the surrogates doing, too. They need only look and sound credible to be effective con artists. They pick donors pockets, separate the facts from the truth and sow seeds of distrust and confusion. Their marks co-operate in their own seduction. They are happy to be taken for a ride from which theyll not return. Politics as entertainment is addictive. Right-wing populists use the electoral process as a means to destroy it. Ameri-cans intoxicated with anger rally behind the onslaught, cheering it on. They thrill to uncaging an unpredictable force, empowered with their support to terror-ize hapless others.Ž Theirs is a twisted notion of economic revenge. Alas, they are dupes, blind to and complicit in what is actually going on „ an electoral process so corrupted by money and special interests, that democracy is about to be stolen. Cor-porations are people. Money is free speech. We did it to ourselves. When the show is done, when the full measure of the crime is taken, our regret will come too late. It wont matter if someone aspiring to be president of the United States is without the qualifications and experience to do the job. Donald Trump is the first candidate to get this close to the Oval Office without either. He is the proof of the concept the perpetra-tors of a failed democracy were looking to find. The irony is he found them first. Yes, ladies and gentlemen. This is the Greatest Show on EarthŽ „ our incom-parable American democracy making its periodic, peaceful transfer of presi-dential power. But the transition is dan-gerously out of control, like an ancient Roman circus where only the lions sur-vive. Most of us will arrive at the polls exhausted. Still, more is to come. Even when the tent is quiet, the side shows ceaselessly beckon an audience with breaking news. First comes the tease, henceforth of the undiscovered, the half-man/half-woman; or some other novel aberration never known to man „ until now! Its all a part of the plan „ whose plan we never know for sure. Call them the Impresarios of Leaks.Ž He/she/it prom-ises the exposure of secrets will blow our minds and the election results, too. Veiled threats hint of bombshell disclosures, an October surprise.Ž A sickening reveal is made of Donald Trumps locker roomŽ talk, the adoles-cent euphemism he used to explain his adult sexual predations against women. October isnt even over yet. In the last two presidential debates, a screen shot of the Declaration of Inde-pendence served as the background to the speakers platforms. This his-toric, foundational document embodies the principles and values the Founding Fathers thought fundamental to guiding the emergence of the new democracy. It reminds us of the sacred trust we share as American citizens to serve and pro-tect that vision, now, and for all future generations. Think about the stark contrast between the Declarations soaring aspi-rations „ human equality, and life, lib-erty and the pursuit of happiness for all „ and the reality show featuring the two dueling candidates on stage defend-ing those ideals. The greatest show on Earth? Not hardly. And shamefully, not anymore. Q „ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

OPINIONObama’s legacy may be mired in SyriaOn Jan. 20 a new president will be inaugurated, making Barack Obama a private citizen once again. After eight grueling years characterized by unremit-ting, personally charged attacks against him and his family, Mr. Obama seems to be looking forward to his life as an ex-president. We wish him Godspeed. Like his predecessors, Mr. Obama is spending his final months in office bur-nishing his legacy. That is understand-able. When presidents depart, journalists and academics rush to render historical judgments. Americans are an impatient lot, and we want our historyŽ now, not years from now, when it has, of course, legitimately become history.Former presidents are vexed that their failures overwhelm their triumphs. Jimmy Carter brokered the landmark peace agreement between Israel and Egypt, but the mere mention of his name now con-jures images of a timid man in a cardigan whining about a national malaise. George H.W. Bush cannot understand why his masterful prosecution of the first Gulf War is obscured by his stumbling domes-tic policies and an ill-timed glance at his wristwatch during a presidential debate. Bill Clinton is embittered that he is for-ever linked to Monica Lewinsky. What about those high-rolling economic good times of the 1990s? he wonders. George W. Bush insisted, upon exiting the White House in 2009, that it would be at least 50 years before anyone could fairly assess his performance. He has a point, but it is hard to see how his lamentable record of two botched wars and a ruined economy will look any better in 2059.Ronald Reagan is the only president of recent memory whose legacy remains largely intact and unscathed „ more a testament to his aw-shucks amiability and Irish charm than anything else. Reaganites swoon over the role he played in the col-lapse of the Soviet Union. Less remem-bered is that Mr. Reagan should have been impeached and convicted because of the Iran-Contra affair, which involved swap-ping arms for hostages and the illegal funneling of funds to right-wing rebels in Nicaragua. The Teflon President avoided impeachment by pleading he was bliss-fully unaware that Oliver North and his merry band of henchmen „ operating out of the White House, no less „ were shred-ding the Constitution right under his nose.It is Mr. Reagan whom Mr. Obama hopes to emulate in the shaping of his historical record. But the emotionally distant Mr. Obama, lacking the Gippers avuncular good cheer, will have a tough time pulling that off. Many of Mr. Obamas shortcomings as president can be laid at the feet of radical Republicans who questioned the legitimacy of his election and were determined from the outset to bring him down „ regardless of how much harm their unyielding opposition inflicted upon the Republic. He also faced, as our first African-American president, strong headwinds of racism. (Donald Trumps indefensibly vile birther ravings com-prise Exhibit A in this regard.)As noted, most presidencies are tarred by at least one notable failure. Mr. Obamas signal misstep, Syria, is a real whopper and a pluperfect disaster that will be dumped into the lap of his successor and compli-cate American foreign policy for decades to come. Mr. Obamas curious ambivalence toward this savage civil war has resulted in unspeakable carnage, an international humanitarian and refugee crisis of epic proportions, a diminution of American prestige and an emboldening of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his sadistic sidekick, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.The failure that is Syria will define Mr. Obama as surely as the Iraq fiasco has come to define George W. Bush. As with Mr. Bush, we neednt wait 50 years to make that historical pronouncement. Republicans scream about Obamacare, Benghazi and a host of other real and imagined scandalsŽ and foul-ups, but future scholars and biographers will pro-duce volumes that chronicle and dissect the agony of Aleppo. Mr. Obama understands the existential threat Syria represents to his standing. He says the debacle haunts him. He undermines that claim by insisting the Syrian quagmire is, in essence, unsolv-able „ a strangely passive and self-diminishing observation from someone who sincerely believes he ranks among the top five or so American presidents.In an interview with Doris Kearns Goodwin, the Pulitzer Prize-winning his-torian, Mr. Obama said this of Syria: But I do ask myself, Was there something we hadnt thought of? Was there some move that is beyond what was being presented to me that maybe a Churchill could have seen, or an Eisenhower might have figured out? ƒ I think in this job one of the things you realize is there are problems that end up being really hard and by definition the only problems that come to my desk are the ones that nobody else can solve.ŽFair enough. But to be mentioned in the same breath as Washington, Lincoln and the Roosevelts, a president must aggressively untangle the really hardŽ problems and ultimately conquer the ones that nobody else can solve.ŽThat is the test of presidential greatness, Mr. Obama, and in Syria you flunked.

The nominee has responded by slam-ming the speaker on Twitter, and his campaign manager is accusing some (unnamed) elected Republicans of sex-ual harassment against her. The Donald Trump campaign and the Republican Party show every sign of entering into an ugly death spiral. The revelation of the Trump Access Hol-lywoodŽ tape occasioned a historic rup-ture, with elected Republicans around the country denouncing Trump and calling on him to step aside. Any hope of Trump turning a corner with his relatively competent second debate was dashed when House Speaker Paul Ryan told his colleagues that he is concentrating on saving his House majority as a check on Hillary Clinton. It is a fact that one out of two majorparty presidential campaigns fail. Some fail badly. But the GOP may be about to experience an unprecedentedly wrench-ing debacle because its nominee is an ideological interloper with no impulse control or regard for political norms. No matter how bad or weird the cam-paign seems now, it could get worse and stranger still. Bob Dole was a horrible presidential candidate and not a particularly conservative Republican. But he was an honorable man who had a loyalty to things bigger than himself, including his political party. When Republicans had to cut him loose in 1996 to try to save their congressional majorities, he was a good and loyal soldier. Does anyone expect that of Donald Trump? His investment in the party is nil, and he takes all slights personally, whether they are from Alicia Machado or the speaker of the House. The Access HollywoodŽ tape was a tipping point. In isolation, perhaps Republicans could have looked beyond it. But after so many controversies and interventions and alleged pivots, the dam finally broke. The split creates the predicate for a GOP internal war until November and beyond. It will pit swing-state Republi-cans and those who want to save them, like Paul Ryan, against Trumps hard-core base and the balance of ordinary partisan Republicans. The disunity itself will be damaging and dispiriting. There will be every incentive for Trump to exacerbate rather than try to smooth over, or at least look past, the divide. Hitting back at his party critics energizes his fans, and, if he is headed for a loss in November, it sets up a stabbed-in-the-back narrative after the election. So his party detractors are insiders, quislings and, to believe his campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, sexual harassers. The period before the first presidential debate, when Trump pulled close to a tie with Hillary Clinton, feels like an eon ago. He had come back with a month of relative discipline beginning in mid-August that now looks like a parenthesis in an otherwise recklessly selfish campaign. That Trump would become a poisonous wedge issue within the GOP was always a plausible worst-case scenario. Now, it is upon us. Trump supporters in the primaries wanted to burn it down.Ž They may well be able to point to the wreckage of the post-November GOP as an indicator of their smashing suc-cess.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 20-26, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESOne-two punch against heartworm BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickIf youve heard that heartworm, a dangerous parasite that can cause serious disease and death in dogs as well as cats, is becoming resistant to the drugs weve long relied on to protect our pets, youve heard correctly. Failure of oral preventive drugs is reported most often from the Mississippi Delta area, where transmission rates are very high and resistance to preventive drugs has been confirmed,Ž said Dr. John McCall, professor emeritus in the Depart-ment of Infectious Diseases at the Uni-versity of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. But the spreading of resistance to other parts of the country is just a mat-ter of time.Ž The threat of heartworm that cant be prevented with our present drugs is not a minor one. Infection with heartworm, a parasite spread by mosquitos, can cause life-threatening immune system reactions, respiratory distress, kidney failure, heart failure and other symptoms in both cats and dogs. However, theres some good news, too. McCall recently published a study of a new two-step approach to fighting heartworm infection in dogs, one that targets both the heartworm and the mosquito that carries it. Heartworm is a two-parasite system,Ž said Dr. Elizabeth Hodgkins, director of veterinary relations for Ceva Animal Health, which makes Vectra 3D, a topical mosquito repellent and insecticide for dogs that also fights fleas and ticks. Until now, we have not targeted one of these parasites, the mosquito. Weve relied on preventive drugs against the worm to do the heavy lifting alone.Ž This flies in the face of how human public health programs fight mos-quito-carried diseases like Zika virus, where the mosquito is always the primary target. Not only that, but putting all your health eggs in one preven-tion basket will always be less effective than protecting against disease with more than one strategy. When you get a flu vaccine, you still take other precautions, dont you?Ž asked Hodgkins. You still wash your hands and avoid standing in the air space of some-one whos coughing. You know there are other things you need to do to give that vaccine the best chance to keep you from getting sick.Ž Its the same, she said, with heartworm. When it comes to preventing the spread of resistant heartworm outside the South, or protecting dogs in areas where resistance is already present, targeting the mosquito is a valuable extra layer of prevention. Resistance is thwarted because the topical medication stops more than 95 per-cent of mosquitos from biting protected dogs. As a result, the dog has a greatly reduced risk of getting infected „ and so does an uninfected mosquito, who might bite an infected dog later. That stops the transmission of both resistant and non-resistant heartworm. On top of that, the repellent and insecticide killed 98 percent of the mosquitos exposed to a protected dog. Thats good news for everyone, including humans, cats and other pets, who would benefit from a reduced mosquito population. In areas where mosquitoes are abundant, hundreds, and possibly thousands, of mos-quitoes can bite a dog in a 24-hour period,Ž said McCall. The use of a repellent and insecticide could reduce this by 95 percent or more for an entire month.Ž While theres no such thing as 100 percent protection when it comes to living creatures, this double-defense of topical repellent and oral preventive medication is about as close as you can get.

FLORIDA WRITERSScience is sexy in scintillating Hannah Smith thrillerSeducedŽ by Randy Wayne White. Putnam. 352 pages. Hardcover, $27. Pythons, orange trees of ancient stock, infidelity, madness and greed. Is that all there is? Well, no. There is Randy Wayne Whites gloriously complicated, totally unglamorous and fiercely independent Hannah Smith. As in much of Mr. Whites previous work, Floridas his-tory and natural assets are much in evidence, as is the authors interest in saving whats left of the states indigenous wildlife and ecosystem. In many of his novels, Mr. White makes science interesting, and SeducedŽ is no exception. The extended, plausibly intro-duced discussions on how orange trees propagate, along with the reasons for find-ing clones of the original 16th century stock brought by Spanish adventurers, are almost addictive. DNA issues, patents on seed development processes and the money to be made from disease-resistant strains of citrus take Hannah, her allies and her adversaries to dangerous cypress swamps, islands that, like much of Florida, are now denuded of the native animal population by the intru-sions of ravenous giant pythons and other exotic predators. Hey, if youre going to find the, orange trees, youre going to have to risk death by python. True to form in the Randy Wayne White world, the predator most to be feared is the homo sapien. From her cabin cruiser, Hannah sees some disturbance at her moms cracker house. Turns out stroke survivor Loretta has been keeping up her affair with the former lieutenant governor of Florida, a wealthy old philanderer named Harney Chatham. Chatham seems to have died in the love making, and now it seems wise to move the body in order to disguise the place of death. This frantic exercise in saving already wounded reputations soon puts Hannah in the company of Reggie (the deceaseds loyal driver) and other Chatham employees. Among them is Kermit Bigalow, the manager of the Chatham citrus groves, a sizeable enter-prise threatened by plant disease. Bigalow, in a failing marriage and with a young daughter, is quickly enamored with Hannah „ and doesnt hide his attraction. Hannah, off-guard, is first responsive to his advances, but then cools things off and sets limits. She and Bigalow share the interest in saving the threatened orange groves; Bigalow is particularly interested in the financial benefit of controlling break-throughs in the cure. However, as Cha-thams widow, Lonnie, so makes clear, she would own those discoveries made by him while in her employ. Lonnie, a former cheerleader, long tolerated her husbands indiscretions (includ-ing his affair with Loretta). Now that hes passed away, she is busy protecting her turf. Shes locked Kermit out of his job, and shes worried about land Harney willed to Hannah. Moreover, there is evidence to keep hidden that threatens her own rights to inheritance. Loretta and Lonnie are just two in an abundance of colorful characters here. There is also a psycho or two chasing after Hannah in pursuit of the magic orange tree stock. One of these is a rapist with his eyes on Hannah, who has enraged him by standing up to his taunts. Clients of Hannahs fishing guide business are among the contributors to the slow accretion of fascinating information regarding the science of oranges and the wealth that infor-mation might bring. SeducedŽ culminates with a beautifully crafted, lavishly extended action scene in the cypress swamp where Han-nah, her would-be friends and likely ene-mies, and a python or two all interact in terrifying ways. The suspense thermom-eter is about to explode. Hannahs survival skills and courage are tested to the heart-pounding limit. Aside from the three previous Hannah Smith novels and 23 Doc Ford books (most recently Deep BlueŽ), bestselling author Mr. White has had four collections of his columns for OutsideŽ magazine and elsewhere published. A one-hour documentary film, The Gift of the Game,Ž about his trip to Cuba to find the remnants of the Little League teams founded by Ernest Hemingway in the days before Castro won the Best of the FestŽ award from the 2002 Woods Hole Film Festival, then was bought by PBS and broadcast station-by-station in the spring and summer of 2003. Mr. White lives on Sanibel Island, where he was a light-tackle fishing guide for many years, and spends much of his free time windsurfing, playing baseball and hanging out at Doc Fords Rum Bar & Grille.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 20-26, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYadults-only festival has since morphed into the largest event in the Keys, and one of the most popular of its kind in the country. (Imagine Halloween and Mardi Gras got very, very drunk one night in late January, and nine months later youve got Fantasy Fest.) To hear locals tell it, the event started out small „ quaint even, with early themes like Old Key WestŽ and Plays of Tennessee Williams.Ž Over time, it de-veloped a decidedly more adult attitude (most participants of last years All Hal-lows Intergalactic FreakshowŽ seemed to have been space-shuttled in from a futuris-tic world where clothes are irrelevant, but silver body paint ubiquitous). Its doubtful that founding member Joe Liszka could have foreseen todays current iteration of Fantasy Fest. Mr. Liszka, who in 79 was busy serving as the president of the Tourist Development Association of Monroe County, spent his days noo-dling out strategies to attract more tour-ists to the Keys. Always popular during the winter months among tourists fleeing the cold, business dropped significantly after the weather became more pleasant north of Miami. The snowbirds flew back to their nests, so to speak, leaving empty nests „ and plummeting profits „ behind them. According to the official history of Fantasy Fest, Mr. Liszka led fellow TDA board member Frank Romano down to Duval Street on Halloween, and asked him to re-port what he saw when the twosome ar-rived at the quiet, uninhabited roadside. It turned out to be a trick question; Mr. Romano saw nothing, which was, Mr. Liszka explained, precisely the point. The islands residents and shopkeepers had developed a distinctly European habit of boarding up their homes and businesses and leaving for vacation en masse dur-ing the hottest fall months of September and October. To Mr. Liszka, there was no reason that Key West should con-form to the typical tourist-driven template of high season/low season occupancy. Key West was sunny and strange all year round „ why should its visitors not take advantage of the fact all 365 days of the year? He felt the island needed an injec-tion of fun, something exciting that would draw crowds and reinvigorate the commu-nity during what had become a decidedly dreary time to be in the Keys. Almost 40 years later, Fantasy Fest „ still celebrated during the 10 days leading up to Halloween „ has become the larg-est and most profitable of all of Key Wests events. Hotels, B&Bs, and private rental homes sell out months in advance, with nightly rates skyrocketing in response. (During 2015s space-themed Fantasy Fest, a single hotel room was reportedly rented for almost $700, double its yearly average rate of $350.) In the weeks leading up to Oct. 1, costume stores spring up seemingly overnight, their aisles overflowing with feather boas, fishnet stockings, masks, makeup and wigs. But for some annual attendees, prep begins far more than a few weeks before the festivals start. With many of the festivals events offering thou-sands of dollars in cash prizes, seasoned attendees begin work on their costumes six to eight months in advance, with re-sults ranging from Broadway-worthy to bordering on obscene. Historically, Key West has been home to some of our nations most dedicated drink-ers. Indeed, during Prohibition, Florida remained the wettest state in the Union, maintaining its tourist-driven economy thanks to regular ocean shipments of fishŽ curiously shaped like bottles of bootleg liquor. Throughout the 1960s and 70s, drugs were sold on Duval Street with the kind of vocal salesmanship now rel-egated to Spring Break T-shirt hawkers. Though eventually the island was forced to clean up its act (thanks to a truly won-derful scheme perpetrated by FBI agents dressed as karate fans), there exists today a common misconception that during Fantasy Fest the usual laws are suspended in favor of an agreed upon 10-day no-holds-barred cele-bration that would make Hieronymus Bosch blush. The truth, however, is a bit less excit-ing: On Friday, Oct. 28, and Saturday, Oct. 29, a barrier is established around a few blocks of Duval and its adjoining streets, creating an official Fantasy Zone,Ž inside the perimeter of which revelers may carry open (plastic) containers of alcohol. Backpacks, coolers, water guns and replica weapons are banned for obvious reasons, while mounted officers astride a herd of formidable, glossy-coated police horses perform crowd-control duties. Technically, public nudity is illegal in Key West, but during Fantasy Fest that law in particular seems to stretch about a millimeter before its breaking point, much to the delight of participants (and, sometimes, to the horror of a few wide-eyed Dutch families whose travel agent neglected to mention their vacation would coincide with the raunchiest time of the year). Body-painting studios pop up along the length of Duval Street, with women ranging from nubile to decrepit lining up to have their torsos painted „ which, the Key West police urge people to remember, still does not actually constitute wearing a top, and therefore request all bare breasts (painted to appear as twin basset hounds or otherwise) remain inside the designat-ed Fantasy Zone. This years official Fantasy Fest „ themed Political Voodoo & Ballot Box BarbariansŽ „ will begin with one of the events only PG-rated parties, the Goom-bay Festival. Spanning the weekend of Oct. 21, Goombay sees the historic neighbor-hood of Bahama Village turned into a kind of folksy, exuberant block party, complete with food and craft stalls, though the heart of the festival is undoubtedly the nonstop musical performances. Featuring a wide range of acts including reggae, funk and gospel, the stage at the intersection of Petronia and Fort Street becomes an inclu-sive dance party for the islands residents and tourists just beginning their Fantasy Fest vacation. Its a joyful two days, with this years accented by the return of the Cannonball Run Rolling Parade on Duval, the nations oldest car rally. A must-see for any car enthusiast, the rally recently celebrated its centenary, and this years relaunch on Friday the 21st promises an invigorated, unique collection; the rally drivers, whose journey begins in Massachusetts, will cruise through Key West before making their way to Cuba for the rallys last leg. Of course, no Fantasy Fest is complete without its special brand of monarchy. For those unfamiliar with the symbolic coro-nation of the king and queen of Fantasy Fest, youre in luck: A new exhibit, now open at the Custom House Museum, ex-plores the incredible legacy of the king and queen campaign, which to date has raised millions for the local nonprofit AIDS Help. The exhibit, Fantasy Island,Ž takes view-ers through the history of Fantasy Fest and the fundraising efforts that those compet-ing for the crown have produced over the years. After youve familiarized yourself with the process, youll feel at home at-tending the official royal coronation at the Casa Marina on Oct. 21. In true Key West fashion, the election of this years monarchy is less pomp and circumstance, more flamboyant fabulous-ness, with a two-hour stage show and appearances by local celebrities. Once crowned, the king and queen (awarded for having raised the most money for AIDS help during their campaign) will preside over the rest of the weeks parties, parades, galas and get-togethers.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 20-26, 2016 NEWS A9King Neptunes Curse and the Spirits of the Long DeadŽ party (but maybe shorten it to spooky boat partyŽ for the kiddos). Starting at 8 p.m., kids and adults can navi-gate the bowels of the historic ship while solving puzzles in an attempt to break Neptunes curse, thereby saving the entire world. Weve certainly accomplished less on a Friday night. Let the kids bask in the glory of their heroism, then leave them at home for a de-cidedly R-rated version of one of their fa-vorite fairy tales. Peter Pans Adventures in Naughty Land: A Burlesque ParodyŽ will see Key Wests best burlesque performers team up with special guests bearing saucy names such as Moana Amour and Cheeky Derriere, all hell-bent on subverting the classic childrens story by way of artful striptease. The show runs for six nights only at the Waterfront Playhouse, and after the success of last years The Sexy Side of Star Wars,Ž its sure to sell out fast. Though not an official Fantasy Fest event, the ever-popular Zombie Bike ride is cer-tainly not to be missed. What started as a rag-tag bunch of weirdos careening down South Roosevelt has evolved into a traffic-stopping, national news-covered theme ride from East Martello to downtown Duval Street. Though the event has become less of a rideŽ than a start-and-stop, slow-moving parade of fantastically zombified riders try-ing not to crash into one another, bike traffic along the 4-mile route usually decongests enough toward the end of the highway to al-low for a friendly breeze or two. There are no limits or expectations for costumes; some riders look ready for their next scene on The Walking Dead,Ž while others might smear some fake blood on their shirt and call it a day, but the more effort you put into your costume, the bet-ter, since families camp out in chairs along the way, cheering and filming. Its a unique spectacle to be sure, so tell friends out of town to keep an eye out „ you might just make the evening news. Monday Oct. 24, starts out with a bang „ of a starters gun, that is, when the an-nual Heroes and Villians Run/Walk 5K takes off from the Southernmost Beach Caf. Dress up as your favorite hero or vil-lain, make your way to the finish line as fast as you can, and youll be in the running (pun intended) for prizes such as funniest costume,Ž most creativeŽ and more. The run ends, as all runs should, with a sunset beach party, after which the beach trans-forms into a pig roast. Thirty-five bucks gets you access to a buffet chock full of Cu-ban classics like soffritto, yucca, tostones, picadillo and, of course, roast pork. On the other side of the spectrum, the unofficial but always titillating Kellys Kinky Karnival kicks off at 9 p.m. Monday night, with costumes required for entry „ and make no mistake, these are some seri-ous fetishists. The long-standing tradition has resulted in Monday nights becoming an informal Fetish Night island-wide. Keep an eye out for pop-up BDSM parties (how many times have you heard that one?) and enjoy wandering around the Fantasy Zone for your first glimpse at just how far some people try to push the boundaries of I swear, officer, Im not naked.Ž Tuesday Oct. 25, offers up a whole range of festivities, including an animal-themed all-you-can-drink SPCA party, the official Fantasy Fest Poster Signing party, a Beach Bash featuring Patrick and the Swayzees, and of course, the always epic Captain Tonys Party in Plaid, aka the perfect ex-cuse for having held onto those horrify-ing madras pants for all these years. For a more obvious thrill, theres also the Men of Labare Tighty Whitey Party, featuring the all-male Adonis-like revue made famous by the Magic Mike movies. Dress code encourages sexy white underwear (not an oxymoron, contrary to what your middle school bully might have told you) and tickets are limited. If it was good enough for national treasure Chan-ning Tatum, its more than good enough for Key West. One of the favorite nonoffi-cially sponsored events is Tutu Tuesday at the Waterfront Brewery. This years theme is Tutus in Space. Wednesday through Saturday are when Fantasy Fest really gets going, with mul-tiple themed parties „ some official, some unsanctioned „ happening throughout downtown. Some of the legendary ones: the Pet Masquerade, where a procession of costumed pets and their incredibly crafty owners make their way across a stage at the Casa Marina to compete for prizes; Wharfstock, where prototypical pirate hangout Schooner Wharf transforms itself into a psychedelic love-child groove fest, complete with body painting contest; the 34th annual Headdress Ball, where the phrase the closer the headdress, the closer to GodŽ gets tested out for seri-ous cash prizes; the ABC party, where anything but clothes gets you in the door (the other side of which bunniesŽ from Nevadas most famous brothel are wait-ing, along with exotic dancers and cash prizes to the most creative costumes); an all-day, all-night street fair with crafts, food and last-minute souvenirs; the 16th annual Living Art Expo, where the best human canvasesŽ are awarded thousands of dollars; a White Party, Red Party, Blue Party, Pink Party, Toga Party, Slumber Par-ty, Kinky Couples Party, Glow Party, Pirate Party, Foam Party, Nerd Party and Pajama Party; and, of course, the Dungeon of Dark Secrets party, which is exactly what it sounds like. There are also two massive parades: the first, the locals-favorite Masquerade March. Thousands of costumed pedestri-ans gather to parade themselves through downtown to the delight of onlookers handing out shots and beads. And then, theres Saturdays pice de rsistance: The Fantasy Fest Parade, a con-fetti-throwing, band-booming, float-filled colorful masterpiece to end the festival on a very, very loud note. If youre still alive by Sunday, congratulations! May we suggest scraping yourself off the floor and attending the annual Fat Lady SingsŽ Tea Dance at La Te Da. We have it on very good authority that yes, there will be a fat lady present; yes, she will sing and that afterward, all of it „ eventually, finally „ will be over. At least, until next year.The full list of events, including tickets, start times and contact info for all official Fantasy Fest events, can be found at (those interested in at-tending any of the weeks unofficial events should utilize Facebook or Q ROB O’NEAL/FLORIDA KEYS NEWS BUREAU / HOBraxton the Dalmatian leaps from his “fire engine” driven by owner Leah Burroughs, right, at last year’s Fantasy Fest Pet Masquerade.

The town of Jupiter donated the use of the building at Military Trail and Indian-town Road to the center, where workers gather daily to be hired. Were not a job placement or staffing agency. We have to be careful matching corporations with a day laborer. If you want to make arrangements for multiple jobs, you have to do this yourself,Ž he said. Training for the staff at El Sol comes from the Career Source of Palm Beach County. The goal is to provide skills to move the laborers beyond day jobs to steady work. OSHA training for the work-ers also is encouraged by El Sol staff. While there is a large group of volunteer workers at El Sol, including those from AmericaCorps VISTA, there is a paid staff, including Executive Director Jocelyn Skolnik, a native of Guatemala. She was recognized for her work by the White House in 2013 as a Champion of Change.Ž Funding for the center is from several sources, but primarily grants and donations. We apply for private grants and have in-kind support „ donations of teaching materials, for example. Our only major fundraiser is the El Sol Fest, though,Ž Mr. Lopez said. As demographics change in Jupiter and Palm Beach County, programs are adapt-ed to help others. Today we have a lot of native-born Americans as day laborers ,Ž he said. Were seeing an influx of people from Venezuela and Europeans also, as day laborers,Ž he said, but were open to serve anyone who is a resident of Jupiter.Ž The core group is Mayans from Guatemala and from South Mexico. They have few resources available to them, espe-cially in their native languages. We offer social services, such as legal aid and health programs, and education programs. English and Spanish literacy, for example. A lot of the time, they come here with little education, so they havent even passed a sixth-grade education. And for many, Spanish isnt their first lan-guage, either. They may speak a Mayan language. So we give them that literacy in Spanish, then transition them into English classes, too,Ž he said. The school is for students and parents, or grandparents. Extra help is provided at the high schools by Jupiter High School students working with their classmates. They provide literacy work through other life-skill classes, such as cooking „ and reading a recipe. Advanced classes teach computer literacy, vocations such as floral design, and sewing. Sewing is our most robust program,Ž Mr. Lopez said. A lunch for workers is offered, and women from the community volunteer to cook. We have a full professional kitchen,Ž Mr. Lopez said. They also have a vegetable garden where some foods will be sourced for an upcoming market The women will also be providing foods for the festival. Eight countries are represented at the food vendor booths, including Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, and Spain. Foods will range from Mexican soft tacos and tostados, and grilled steak plat-ters with rice and beans, to Honduran baleadas „ a folded tortilla filled with cheese and mashed beans; and horcha-ta, a traditional rice drink flavored with cinnamon. Guatemalan chilles rellenos and hojuelas, a sweet fried pastry; Peru-vian causas, a potato tart; and Colom-bian arepas, corn cakes, will be offered at pricing conducive to sharing or trying a variety. We want people to know how reasonable the foods are,Ž Mr. Lopez said. Other vendors will display artwork. Among the day laborers we found amaz-ing painters. Its grown into a signature festival, representing the Mayan heritage. Were proud of our Haitian artists as well.Ž There will be beer dance performances, the traditional dance you see in Gua-temalan villages. Music will be the tradi-tional instruments, the marimba.Ž Other artists from the Lighthouse Art Center in Tequesta will participate, and there will be kids activities such as face painting and hands-on art projects.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 20-26, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY Some will note the razing of West Palm Beachs Carefree Theatre as the end of an eyesore at the corner of Dixie Highway and Flamingo Drive. After all, the crumbling building that failed to weather hurricanes and changing times didnt warrant enough architectural sig-nificance to get the historical registry folks interested. That made no difference to its many patrons and former workers, however, who saw it not just as a job site, but more of a home away from home. For them, its painful to see it reduced to piles of bricks, making way for a new complex that could possibly house a new theater. Scott Gartner, who worked as a booking agent and handler for bands coming through the Carefree, explained. We all grew up there.Ž Joy Melegari-Bryson, a manager who wore a number of hats at the theater, including directing the shadow cast for the long-running midnight movie, Rocky Horror Picture Show,Ž agreed. There are so many memories there. They may be able to knock down our building, but they cant take away our memories.Ž While in later years the building was home to a concert venue, a movie the-ater showing international art films, an art gallery, a caf, and the Comedy Club, long-time locals remember it as a first-run movie theater, as well as a pool hall, and the BowlawayŽ „ a 10-lane bowling alley where wooden pins were set by hand. Leon Chalhub Jr. and his sister, Carol Chalhub Smith, remember their fathers theater. Leon Chalhub was one of the three brothers who owned and ran the recreation complex. They had no experience,Ž with theaters or bowling alleys, said Mr. Chalub. It was all a new venture for them. My Uncle Elias and Dad ran the business because my Uncle George was in the war. He returned in 1945 and helped then.ŽThe scoop on the beginningCarefrees building started out as an ice cream parlor and coin laundry, then in 1939, the Chalhub brothers bought it and converted it into the Carefree Bowl-away with a billiard room. It also housed a fabric store called Fashion Fabrics, run by Edna Chalhub, now Edna Panutsos „ a sister to the owners. In 1948, the movie theater, seating 805, was added to the east. The seat-count included a soundproof, glass-front cry-ing roomŽ for moms with fussy babies, upstairs next to the projection booth. It was a true silver screen Cinemascope movie house, debuting with the film, The Egg and I.Ž Growing up, parents would bring their children, drop them off on Sat-urday morning, and the kiddie shows would run in the morning. They had bowling leagues, and played Ping-Pong. Back then, leaving your child wasnt a big problem. There was plenty for them to do,Ž Mr. Chalub said. The Chalub children worked there, as did most of their other family members, he said. We all participated. I remember my Uncle Elias used to have screenings where hed actually bring a movie in he was considering. The family members all went to see the movie before hed decide to purchase the movie for the public. It was after hours. All the good ones we saw „ we just saw them first.Ž Mrs. Smith worked the concession stand, and helped set the bowling pins back in place after each set. I also kept score for some of the bowling leagues,Ž she recalls. Mr. Chalub racked the pool balls for games in the mens billiard room. I can remember Burt Reynolds and Dick Howser, a major league baseball manager. Theyd come in and play pool in the afternoons. Willie Mosconi, and a lot of the other famous pool players would come and put on exhibitions there.Ž His sister met Jackie Gleason when he came in to play pool. T here was a fl utter of excitement the morning the then first lady, Jacqueline Kennedy, came to watch a movie with her sister, Lee Radziwill. My mom let me and my cousin Sandra go,Ž said Mrs. Smith. They were already seated. We got on the row right behind them and sat on the edge of our seats. We were so close we could tell that she didnt have long fingernails.Ž Toward the end of the movie, she said, All of a sudden about 10 men stood up all over the theater and they got up and went out to their limousine before the movie was over to eliminate a crowd. We got up right behind them. We went out and saw them get in „ and they waved to us! It was a highlight for sure for us young kids.ŽA locals hangoutArea attorney Rae Franks remembers: I went bowling there in junior high, then played pool in high school when they opened it to women.Ž She noted the pool room was for men only for many years. Katie Deits, a local artist and fre-quent contributor to Florida Weekly, went to the movies there while in high school in the late 1950s and early 60s. I saw West Side Story there, even though my mother thought it was too racy. My parents forbade (me) see-ing it, but I went anyway. It was more of a big deal going to the movies back then. Wed go there on dates. I remember the screen was so big. We didnt have big-screen TVs back then „ the TVs were really small, so this was really big to us.Ž The seats everyone would later complain of were fine by her, she said. There werent any luxury theaters. The Palm downtown, but no luxury theaters like you have today with fancy seats.Ž Ms. Deits remembers all the area high school kids mingled there. The Carefree was just a hang-out. It was an innocent time „ there were no drugs, we didnt get into anything like that, we just hung out. After the movies or pool, wed go over to The Hut. It was just what everybody did back then.Ž Mrs. Smith says one of her fondest memories is of her graduation night. My Uncle Elias closed the theater at 10 oclock. My entire graduating class was invited to come to an all night lock-in party. Once you arrived, you turned your keys in. We were allowed to bowl, watch movies, shoot pool, play PingPong, shuffleboard, and take advantage of all the snacks and use the entire facil-ity the entire night for free. We were chaperoned by my parents, and aunts and uncles of a couple of us. The parents were so appreciative that they didnt have to worry about where their children were all night.Ž Her good friend Penny Greenberg Murphy, whose family owns Pioneer Linens, said, I remember how much fun it was „ they had the bowling alley, the movies there, and pool tables for the men. I remember going on a date there with friends „ you knew everybody. Because everybody was so close, you might have gone to church or temple with them, or known them through family friends. A lot of my girlfriends were dating boys from Palm Beach High. We went to Forest Hill. A lot of people from both high schools were there, so when you were bowling, it was, Who is going to win? The Falcons or the Wildcats?Ž She remembers the more innocent days of an early West Palm Beach where the Carefree was a teen hangout. It was still a small town. You knew everybody there. No matter where you went in those days it was like having a party with your friends all the time.Ž Her friend, Barbara Eissey Porscher, recalls the best, best hamburgers there. They had a counter like Woolworth in the bowling alley. My parents and their friends lived on Flamingo, and wed just walk down the street and Id get a hamburger.Ž She also saw movies there. I remember seeing A Man for All Seasons and Out of Africa.Ž Another long-time resident, Janet Morgan, recalls going there for movie night. There was no place to park. You had to walk from down the street. That was a really big night on the town when you went to the movies back then, though. There werent theaters every-where like today, and only one movie was shown on that big screen. Id go with a friend who loved the movies. She still talks about seeing Fid-dler on the Roof there.

She loved their fried clams.ŽSingle-screen movies fadeIn the 1980s, as multiscreen theaters became the trend, the individual movie houses were gradually abandoned, left to art-house screenings. Concert promoter and Fantasma Productions founder Jon Stoll bought the Carefree in 1984. He left the movie the-ater intact, showing foreign and vintage films, and a few first-run movies, and hosting the Jewish Film Festival. But it was as a concert venue he promoted the space, bringing in acts from around the country to play the intimate setting, where, according to all who attended, there was not a bad seat in the house. Jesse Stoll, Jons son, grew up in the theater, though he was too young to work there. It was a special place. One of a kind, really, in South Florida. It had a genuine, vintage vibe when you walked in.Ž His dad put money into the acts, but not into the building, he said. You had to be prepared to walk into an experience. He didnt throw a lot of money into it. It wasnt a real moneymaker at the end of the day. The AC didnt work, and it was loud. But it was more about the fans, and for the music. It was stepping back in time. It was a cozy place to play. With all the technology today, its rare to find that now.Ž It also proved an artists springboard back in the day, he said. Scott Gartner worked for Mr. Stoll from 1986 until the Carefree closed in 2006. Prior to him purchasing that theater, he produced shows in other theaters and concert halls. This was the first time we had a venue that we actually owned and operated,Ž he said. The Band was the first to perform on the Carefree stage. The first show Mr. Gartner worked was Graham Nash. He kept hand-writ-ten notebooks of all the acts that came through the theater over the years. I missed some, but not that many.Ž One of the most memorable for him was the Dixie Dregs. I went to school with all those guys. It was an instrumental rock band with unbelievable classical and jazz built into it. Seeing all those local musicians from South Florida and watching them grow. I remember when Jon first booked it. I told him not to put it on a weekend night „ do it on a Tuesday or Wednes-day and wed get everybody here. A lot of the musicians who wanted to see the show worked on the weekends. He did, and it was packed.Ž Other favorites included the Radiators „ I always thought they did a great show.Ž Mr. Stoll booked all kinds of bands „ but teased that there were only really two, Mr. Gartner said. He once said to me, Theres only two types of bands that play the Carefree. Those on their way upƒ and he left it hanging, those on their way down. He had the uncanny talent to book up-and-coming bands.Ž He recalls a young guy no one had ever heard of, opening for comedian Steven Wright. His name was Harry Connick Jr. He played for 45 minutes and was unbelievable.Ž Other names he reads from his lists: Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, B.B. King, Christopher Cross, Kenny Wayne Shep-herd, the Ben Folds Five, Tori Amos, Lit-tle Feat „ who probably win the most performance award, he said, and Edwin McCain „ he was virtually unknown when he played here.Ž Blues guitarist John Mayer was just a youngster when he played the Carefree, right before his first big single came out. Another Carefree office worker who reported to Mr. Stoll, Jennifer SardoneShiner, formerly of Fantasma Produc-tions, remembers when the name came across her desk. I had never heard of him. I was in my 20s, and Id never heard of that guy. Marketing was different then. This was before social media and Facebook. There were flyers put out before events. But cell phones „ they were like, what? Only a few other ways to get the word out, like fan clubs. It was a college-level scene. They had a whole different way of marketing the art-ists.Ž The Mayer show was popular, but not a sell-out. But many of the shows there were, she said. All the acts wanted to come here. It was because artists trusted him (Jon Stoll) and they wanted to work with a reputable pro-moter, and because the staff was hands-on and attended to everyones needs.ŽCupcakes, puppies and health food trendsMr. Gartner said handling the acts and fulfilling the wishes of the visiting artists was often his job. That included shuffling the bands around from the dressing room upstairs to outside of the building through the side stage door that could shut from the inside, keeping out the act acciden-tally. It was such an old-school, vintage vibe,Ž he said. I remember the Motley Crue tour: I got the contract that said, Please have one cupcake, any flavor, on the produc-tion managers desk at 8 a.m. I dont think he ever ate it, but he knew if we could get that right, and on time, the show would be a good one. If not, we couldnt handle the bands production.Ž For Warren Zevon, he rented a puppy. His manager had contacted the Carefree ahead of time and said the singer-song-writer was depressed, and a puppy was the thing that brought him around. So in the dressing room, Mr. Zevon had a puppy to cuddle. The show was a success.Then there were the food quirks to satisfy. I learned a lot about microbi-otic diets,Ž Mr. Gartner said. I had to go to all the health stores. It was a big trend back then.Ž The Comedy Corner, started next door in 1986, also drew up-and-comers. Ms. Shiner ticks off the names of the young comics who were on their first legs: Chris Rock, Will Smith, Bill Maher, Carrot Top, Jerry Seinfeld and home-town favorite Dan Whitney. You know his stage name: Larry the Cable Guy.Ž That persona was born on the Comedy Corners stage. Mr. Gartner remembers one of Sam Kinisons last performances there. He did the first of two shows, and never showed up for the second. He was really sick and it wasnt long after, he died.Ž Ms. Melegari-Bryson remembers Leon Russell and Edgar Winter as the first concerts she worked after starting in the office at the end of 1987. But the one I saw most frequently was Meat Loaf and B.B. King. Not on the same bill!Ž she said. A 16-year-old blues guitar wizard, Jonny Lang would do sleight-of-hand tricks during meet-and-greets after the concert, she said. Then there were the physical problems of the old theater. At one of the first concerts I was at, Little Feat, they were going to turn off the AC. We had a 60-ton unit for the whole theater. It just couldnt handle it. With 750 bodies, lights during a concert „ there was a tremendous amount of heat during a concert,Ž Ms. Melegari-Bryson said.Old seats, hot air, cheap popcornMs. Melegari-Bryson wore dozens of hats, including the voice on the recorder for the movie times. Building mainte-nance was a constant part of her job, as well. I cant tell you how many seats I reupholstered, taking pliers to pull out the springs that were poking somebody in the butt. We reupholstered the half-walls, too.Ž She would argue with Mr. Stoll (he could be tough and hard to get along with, but he was underneath a big teddy bearŽ) for the audiences sake about the concession stand. Tickets were $3.50, then went to $4 and then $4.50 at the end,Ž she said. With the art and foreign films, most of the audience was little old ladies. It was $1 for a small popcorn. Sometimes theyd split one. Jon wanted to raise the price. I told him, Wouldnt you rather sell a lot at $1 than a few at $2? or what-ever he wanted to raise it to.Ž She handled projection for the movies before her stint as momŽ to a shad-ow cast for the Rocky Horror Picture Show.Ž Nineteen fifty-four was engraved on the side of the lens; it was three years older than me,Ž Ms. Melegari-Bryson said. The sound system was your aver-age Dolby.Ž She handled the private screenings for movie critics. I knew Id get a better review from a certain (Palm Beach) Post critic if I put him in there with coffee and an ashtray so he wouldnt be dis-tracted by a caffeine or nicotine fit. So I made sure he had a pot of coffee and the ashtray right there at his seat.Ž It was an atmosphere where workers, audience and talent all mingled. Tommy Chong (of Cheech and Chong) would come up to the cry-ing room and hang out on the sofa and watch the movie. We became good friends,Ž she said.Doing ‘The Time Warp’In 1983, the Carefree began midnight weekend showings of the cult movie, the Rocky Horror Picture Show.Ž The campy film, what Ms. Melegari-Bryson called a rite of passage,Ž drew a crowd of misfits, and they were encouraged as time went on to interact with the movie. The Time WarpŽ dance and callback lines were highlights. I was there for 14 of the years, and had a shadow cast for 12 years. I became the mom. We had the longest-running Rocky shadow cast in Florida and at one point, the fourth longest in the nation. Newsweek talked about us. The thing about doing Rocky „ it was all about having fun and all about acceptance. I gave up 51 Saturdays a year for those kids to have a drug and alcohol-free space. These kids started with me in their teens. A lot of them are 40 now „ and still call me Mom.Ž There were dozens of weeks when the RockyŽ showing outgrossed the main feature, she said. When atten-dance started falling, Jon would threat-en to pull it (Rocky) and Id call Ron Wiggins at The Post. Hed write a story about us, and wed sell out the theater for weeks again.Ž There was a rule that if there werent five seats filled for any movie, they didnt have to show the movie. It was too expensive. So one night I moved the 9:25 movie and refunded the money. We had set up drums, and amps for guitars. We had a bunch of musi-cians and just had a jam session. It was really great.Ž News of the teardown has been painful, Ms. Melegari-Bryson said. She now lives in Pittsburgh. Ive been crying for days when I heard about it. One of my kids got me a brick from the teardown. There are a lot of memories there. A lot.Ž Q JESSE STOLL COURTESY PHOTOOwner Jon Stoll smiles in the lobby of the Carefree Theatre in a photo dating from 1984.COURTESY PHOTOThe “Rocky Horror” shadow cast from the early 1990s, with Joy Melegari-Bryson at top center.SARDONE-SHINER

There were still military barracks along U.S. Highway 1 in Quonset huts for the air-men stationed at Palm Beach Air Force Base and Morrison Field. Dairy farms and cow pastures peppered the land-scape where I-95 now intersects with Okeechobee and Palm Beach Lakes bou-levards. Military Trail ended at Okeechobee Road, as it was known then. Paved roads also ended at Military Trail. U.S. High-way 27, dubbed way out west of town,Ž was the states main North-South artery long before the turnpike was built. Thats how it was when friends of Ralph Lewis told him he was crazy to think of opening a restaurant in West-gate „ so far out of town nobody would go.Ž But Mr. Lewis and his wife, Norma, were determined, and in October 1947, opened the doors to the Okeechobee Drive-In at Okeechobee and Wabasso Drive. It was only a few blocks from their home off Westgate Avenue. They proved the naysayers wrong. Those doors have been open for 69 years to the restaurant now known as the Okeechobee Steakhouse. A steakhouse, I think, was my grandfathers goal from the get-go,Ž said Ralph Lewis, third generation of the founding family. He has gradually taken over operations at the restaurant from his father, Curtis Lewis. Ralphs grandfather got into the business at age 14, working in hotel kitchens. Over the years, he worked his way up to executive chef in hotels run by the own-ers of the Verano Hotel (later known as the George Washington Hotel) on Flagler Drive. Its where he met my grandmother in 1935,Ž Mr. Lewis said. They traveled back and forth to Connecticut to work off-season there, and saved up their money. They were able to pay cash for the land and the construc-tion materials for the restaurant, Mr. Lewis said. The kitchen held a huge charcoal grill, vented by a brick chimney, used to cook the chicken, shrimp, fish and steaks served at tables indoors as well as curbside to the cars. Painted on the building was part of the menu: Char-broiled steaksƒ $1.10 and up.Ž Within three years of opening, the couple also had a package store and liquor license, and patrons could buy a bottle to take home, or a drink at the bar. You could drive up and get a steak and a cocktail served on one of those metal trays that hooked to your car,Ž Mr. Lewis said, laughing. Back then, things were different.ŽSwamp buggies, and airboatsDiners came from all areas along the coast; to the west was all wild swamp and cow pastures. People would come up to the steakhouse in swamp buggies and airboats,Ž he said.

They have one son, Thomas, 21, a student at Florida Atlantic Univer-sity. My wife and I have always figured you give the IRS a third, save a third and spend a third.Ž It has worked for them. At age 51, I could retire tomorrow, but I dont know what Id do.Ž So he continues to work and share what he has learned with students through Junior Achievement. I like opening minds, especially at the middle-school level,Ž he said. With a little hard work and luck they can find a path to achieving their goals.Ž Peter BozetarnikAge: 51 Where I grew up: Griffith, Ind., a small blue-collar town in northwest Indiana where most people worked in the steel mills or construction. Where I live now: West Palm Beach. I moved here in 1997 as part of a job transfer. Education: A B.S. in accounting from Indiana University, and attended addi-tional courses at FAU to earn my Florida CPA license. Attended the University of Chicago, Executive Business Education Program „ Business Advisor.Ž What brought me to Florida: My aging mother was living in Vero Beach and I had an opportunity to transfer with my employer from Charlotte to West Palm Beach. My job today: My wife, Kim, and I own our own Certified Public Account-ing firm. We specialize in midsize busi-nesses and their tax issues. My first job and what it taught me: I started working construction jobs at age 14. My older brother was a carpenter and my brother-in-law was a bricklayer. We did side jobs every weekend to make ends meet in the recession of the early 1980s. The construction industry teaches you to solve problems and think outside the box. Every day, you run into a prob-lem that was not on the blue print. I also learned, nothing replaces hard work. A career highlight: Making partner at a national accounting firm, McGladrey. About one in 20 accoun-tants that start in public accounting make it to partner. I was promoted to the Tax Leader of Florida and man-aged seven locations and about 80 pro-fessionals. Starting my own firm was another career highlight. Hobbies: My wife and I love to travel and play golf. We travel about six to eight weeks a year. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: Understand your role on the team and that each task is important. In public accounting everyone starts at the same level, staff accountant. You either get promoted or leave public accounting. A success-ful person is willing to do whatever is needed to get the task completed. About mentors: My brother-in…law Larry Redden taught me hard work, problem-solving skills, common sense, ethics and honesty will get you every-where you want to be. I took these blue-collar traits to a white-collar world and never looked back. Q ““My wife and I have always figured you give the IRS a third, save a third and spend a third. ... At age 51, I could retire tomorrow, but I don’t know what I’d do.” — Peter H. Bozetarnik, Partner at Bozetarnik & Company, LLPBOZETARNIK BEEFFrom page 18Highway, another pioneering family in the county. As for meat, They would order beef from Smith, Richardson & Conroy. They were here for decades and decades,Ž Mr. Lewis said. Beef was bought as a whole or half steers. Theyd age it in their ware-houses, and wed go pick it up, and break up the whole steers. They ground the burger, used some of it for lunch specials and ran other specials. They utilized everything.Ž Only one of the original dishes that was so popular no longer appears on the menu, Mr. Lewis said. We used to sell a ton of Lake Okeechobee catfish every week for decades and decades „ from the 50s, 60s and 70s. We were very well known for our catfish. But people quit ordering it. Everybodys palates have changed. Its all steak and salmon now. Then, it was cat-fish and beer, or steak and beer.Ž In 1958, their newspaper ad boasted that it was Air conditioned!Ž A com-plete T-bone steak dinner was $2.35; the steak alone was $1.95. They advertised catering for parties, take-outs, cock-tails, and package goods.Ž Along the bottom of the ad read: The Crackers „ Ralph, Norma and The Gang.Ž My grandfather was very proud of that,Ž Mr. Lewis said.A locals’ and celebs’ favoriteOver time, the landscape changed; whole cities sit west of where the road ended when it was still a drive-in. Okeechobee has been widened several times since theyve been there,Ž said Lee Spencer, owner of U and Me Mov-ing and Storage in West Palm Beach. The 93-year-old was born the year his parents bought the busi-ness he now runs. There are four generations here now,Ž he says. Ive known Curtis (Lewis) for many years. I was probably eating out there when it was a drive-in „ I cant remember. Im old,Ž he said, laughing. Almost every lunch hour during the week finds him at the bar at Okeechobee Steakhouse. I go with a group; the lunch bunch.Ž These include many West Palm Beach long-timers, such as Chuck Schumacher, the automo-bile dealer, and Don Walker, a former real estate engineer. He sees area attor-neys. John „ we call him the Sandman „ is the guy who furnished all the sand to the golf courses in town. There are several others.Ž Mr. Spencer often gets onion soup, and carries with him a tiny pair of scis-sors „ he says its to cut the cheese on top. My late wife used to tease me about needing a pair of scissors to cut the cheese „ its so thick. I bring the scissors as a joke in her memory.Ž Celebrities stop in often, Mr. Lewis said. Rudy Giuliani is a regular when hes in town. The owner of the Marlins, Jeff Loria. He eats here often, as do the Mar-lins players. They come over on a bus. And Vince Naimoli, one of the coowners of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, tells me this is one of his all-time favor-ite restaurants.Ž The restaurant has been updated over the years, additions here, demolitions there. But a certain familiarity remains, and draws regulars „ to the horseshoe bar at happy hour, and to the dining room booths for meals with friends. Okeechobee Steakhouse recently announced plans for a bourbon room, and a martini room is a nod toward a new trend in small-batch liquors and cocktails made from fresh ingredients to order. Mr. Lewis said their wine program has been ramped up in the last decade as well. His wife, Laura, is in a somme-lier class to provide education for the diners. This past year, weve brought in some high-end wines. Were going to put in some private wine lockers and offer wine dinners here,Ž he said. After listening to their diners, they shut down their salad bar a few years ago. The diners told us they wanted to be served in an expensive steakhouse. They didnt want to have to get up and make their own salad.Ž A few groused, but most approved, he said. Further improvements will be made to the building behind the steakhouse. Were putting in larger dry-aging rooms and a climate-controlled room to hold more wine.Ž Though fish and other dishes are on the menu, steaks remain the top seller „ a filet mignon and New York Strip in particular. Theyre brought to the table raw so diners can see the marbling and cuts before they order. Its all done in house, too: The meats are still cut by hand seven days a week by two meat cutters on staff „ 3,000 pounds a week is butchered and ground. We have to train them how to do it; nobody does it anymore „ there are no butchers. Its because meat comes packed in boxes already cut to most restau-rants. We do all our own.Ž They prepare their own salad dressings, soups and sides as well. And they gave away 7,000 free steaks last year as birthday din-ners.Ž We started that about 25 years ago. Word has traveled fast.Ž The deal: Show your photo ID and dine here on your birthday to get a free 8-ounce steak with the purchase of one other adult entre. Having weathered most everything in the industry, including the choles-terol/red meat furor of the 1990s and a renewed interest in plant-based diets today, they have no plans to change much, he said. Steaks are still Ameri-cans favorite food. Vegetarians are not our target market. Its a carnivores para-dise here.Ž Several staffers are long-timers at the steakhouse, but server Wesley Thomas is a 43-year vet. He started as a busboy and now is a dining room favorite, with patrons requesting his tables when they make a reservation. The Okeechobee Steakhouse is believed to be the longest continuous-ly operating family-run steakhouse in Florida. Jessica Fontaine, the restaurants spokesperson, said her research turned up only Berns in Tampa and Tropical Acres in Broward County as second old-est; theyre two years younger. Mr. Lewis has kids who are interested in taking over once he retires, though not anytime soon. Were planning to be around a lot longer.Ž Q

You are when the other three amateur drivers ahead of you pull away doing 120 mph. This is the Lexus Performance Driving School, a traveling classroom with a dozen professional drivers teaching regular folks how to attack a racetrack. Its a new program designed to prove to Lexus customers (and prospective ones) the virtues of the luxury brands performance engineering. The whole session is less of a sales pitch and more of a trial by fire in $80,000-plus cars. So its the exact opposite of Amway. In the case of the car that needed a prod beyond 105 mph, this was a game of follow the leader being played around Palm Beach International Raceway. If the group of four trailing cars can do its job of staying tight to the pro driver in front, then the whole group gets to go faster. Its a very rewarding system. Lexus chose a great spot for its inaugural driving school weekend, because this South Florida track is more than 2 miles worth of pavement with 10 unique turns. When piloting the nearly -mile straightway in a 467-hp Lexus GS F, its inevitable to hit speeds that would be a jailable offense on public roads. This track session is part of a fourstation program that also includes a maneuvering course, wet road skidpad and a timed road course, all specially assembled to showcase Lexuss F-Per-formance division. Where BMW has M and Mercedes has AMG, a Lexus with an F in its name has been re-engineered to be a speedy luxury machine. But the buying public isnt necessarily aware how much is really altered under this performance banner. Lexus has been around for nearly three decades. The first two were devot-ed to proving that the Japanese brands were capable of providing top-quality luxury cars. By the time Lexus debuted the high-performance F moniker in 2007, it was so well established as a rock-solid luxury provider that speedy machines were often perceived as an afterthought. The company has been turning the tide with cars like the very limited edi-tion LFA supercar, and now its looking to kick up its full mainstream street cred. With the RC F already on the market and the GS F fresh to dealer showrooms, theres a major push to prove this is more than just leather-clad luxury with a big V8 stuffed under the hood. The time at the raceway isnt filled with jargon about transmission settings or why the adjustable torque-vectoring differential makes all the difference in the GS F. Instead, its about showcasing how much engineering goes into F-Per-formance machines by having drivers discover their individual limits on a racecourse. In the process, it fulfills a childhood fantasy of being tossed the keys to an exotic sports car with the only instruction to Go crazy, kid.Ž While the day is rewarding to everyone who enjoys thrashing around expen-sive performance machines that dont belong to them, Lexus does make sure to end on a humble reminder. International pro driver Scott Pruett recently started racing Lexus GT3s, and so the company brought him in to show us all what hot laps were really all about. For a man who has won at Le Mans, a few laps at Palm Beach is easier than most of our morning commutes. Being a passenger for this all-out demonstration is already worth the price of admission. But surprisingly, Pruetts top speed in a GS F was only 14 mph more than the earlier amateur rounds. That says a lot for the confidence a good sports car can inspire. But for a man who makes his living knowing the definition of an apex, the GS F allowed Pruett to grip every corner with a roller-coaster level of G-force. And his total lap times proved he could, literally, run circles around the rest of us Sunday drivers. It was a heart-stopping demonstration of what it takes to be a real professional racer, and a humbling reminder that we still have plenty to learn when this traveling school comes back to Florida next year.

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 20-26, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY 2016 7 THEATER REVIEWThe emotional histrionics and pyrotechnic acting in the first act not-withstanding, its the quiet poignant moments of compassion and connec-tion in the second act that are the most deeply affecting in Palm Beach Drama-works skillful resurrection of Tennes-see Williams The Night of the Iguana.Ž This rarely revived play, among the last of Williams works with a wide name recognition, is populated with damaged souls akin to Blanche Dubois trying to escape their past and make some kind of peace about their future in a cold, unforgiving world. And while the peace they find at the end of this long days journey into night is as imperfect as they are themselves, there is a sense of a salvation in the dis-covery of empathy and forgiveness for inborn weaknesses and flaws. Such is the heart (in all its meaning) of Dramaworks production, brought to life and light by Producing Artistic Director William Hayes, a fine cast and a superb support team. The story is set in a single day and night in 1940 in a fourth-rate hilltop tourist hotel on the Mexican coast run by the recently widowed Maxine, a lusty, earthy woman barely able to say shes middle aged. Lurching up the hill is her old friend T. Lawrence Shannon, a disgraced minister reduced to leading cheap tour groups, often ending up at Maxines establishment. But the former alcoholic has far more haunting baggage than that of the wom-ens church group he has alienated with haphazard ways and his tryst with a 16-year-old patron. In fact, the fever-plagued Shannon is not simply teetering on the edge of a stygian abyss, he is beginning to tumble over and his only hope „ no, he has no hope „ our only hope is that someone will take pity and pull him back from toppling. Surprisingly, that hope arrives in the form of Hannah Jelkes, a spinster paint-er traveling with her 96-year-old senile grandfather, a minor poet striving to finish his last work. Complicating the situation are the steamy 16-year-old in heat, Charlotte, who persistently tempts Shannon, and the nominal head of the tour group, the judgmental Miss Fellowes. As Shannons world collapses on him like a cave-in, the resilient and resolute Hannah who has more fortitude than it appears and the voracious Maxine vie for Shannons future. For some reason, IguanaŽ is not performed as often as the masterpieces in Williams canon. Written in 1961 before he completely surrendered to symbolism, poetry and near-surrealism, IguanaŽ is a transition between cre-ative modes. For instance, the dialogue subtly slips into lovely lyricism that Mr. Hayes and the cast make seem natural but is in fact a reflection of Williams highly theatrical vision of the beauty of yearning souls. But it unmistakably echoes Williams bottomless sympatico for sensi-tive human beings such as predeces-sors Blanche and Laura. Here, he has Hannah and Shannon in a last bunker against a harsh crass world exemplified by the invasion of German tourists cel-ebrating Nazi victories over the Allies. Tim Altmeyers marathon performance as Shannon is bound to divide audiences. He enters the play as a man driven by fever and likely the DTs, seriously finding suicide an ever more attractive option. He stumbles about on rubbery legs, his arms flailing in uncon-trollable spasms and his sweaty face contorting. Even lying in a hammock, his body cannot resist twitching. Many people may find this operatic rendition over the top, but we did not. Mr. Altmeyers performance is, for our money, masterful. He is always believable, always in the moment, even though he is on stage for the majority of the evening. His emotional writhing, whether literally or figuratively tied up, is harrowing. The only carp is that he often slurs his words. The North Florida actor is unrecognizable from the caustic writer in Dramaworks 2014 production of My Old Lady.Ž The unassailable performance belongs to New York-based Katie Cunningham, who triumphs over the difficult part of Hannah. Her creation may look like a mousy spinster schoolteacher, but by turns Ms. Cunningham credibly reveals facet after facet of quiet strength and clear-eyed pragmatism surpassing that of everyone elses in the play, and yet she maintains a succoring compassion for human fallibility. This dichotomy makes Hannah arguably Williams most admirable heroine, even though she has her own flaws. The rest of the cast is just as fine, especially Kim Cozort Kay as Maxine. If she is not as earthy and sexually voracious as the films Ava Gardner, she is more skilled at evoking the widows barely disguised loneliness under the rough protective armor. Dennis Cre-aghans doddering Nonno is believably at the end of his life, struggling to make one last artistic statement against the dying of the light.Ž We can almost save time by copying past reviews referencing the bar-setting work of Dramaworks creative team and behind the scenes crews. Trying to avoid spoilers, to some degree the ghosts are exorcised, the chains are loosened and the characters start on new chapters they had not contemplated possible. But this is Ten-nessee Williams and while he saw this as having a more optimistic ending than most of his works, the futures pointedly are not of the happy-ever-after type.

#JMMZ+PFM &BHMFT &MUPO+PIO .BEPOOB UIFQBMNDPN %PXOMPBEUIF UIFQBMNBQQ561-627-9966 FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 20-26, 2016 B13 Local playwright Donna Carbone returns to Harbourside with another dinner theater presentation of her play, Shell of a Man.Ž This time the production will be offered with a bit of a twist. Ticket holders can dine on a prix fixe meal at Another Broken Egg Caf and then walk a few steps to the new Vanilla Box Theatre, a venue created especially for this event. The dates are Nov. 10, 11 and 12 „ Veterans Day weekend. Dinner begins at 5 p.m. The show begins at 7 p.m. Ms. Carbone originally brought the play to Harbourside in September and the demand for tickets far exceeded available seating. The show was held inside Another Broken Egg Caf, where Ms. Carbone and her production team had created an intimate theater environment. In a recent interview, Ms. Carbone said, I was standing offstage watching the audience. Grown men were crying. Women were leaning forward in their seats as though trying to touch the actors. One audience member told me that he forgot he was watching a play. He believed that the real Robert Logan was on stage speaking to him.Ž Shell of a ManŽ is a true story. Robert Logan is a Vietnam veteran. He was raised in the Jim Crow South and picked his first bag of cotton at the age of 2. The hardship of his early life taught him the skills needed to survive a 40-year battle with PTSD. Ms. Carbones goal is to personalize this much-talked-about but barely understood condition in order to raise awareness of the need for better health care for our men and women in uni-form. The play features Ewan Leslie as Robert Logan, Jeanne Tidwell as Adri-ana Fleming and Lee Marlow as Dawn Peters. Ms. Carbone explained how Shell of a ManŽ came to be written. In 2011 I published two columns supporting better health care for vet-erans. A Vietnam vet wrote to me, expressing his thanks and beginning what was to become a much-cherished and often-painful friendship. He calls himself Robert L. Weve never met,Ž she said. His face is but a ghostly image in an old photograph he sent to me. I hear his voice only through the emails we exchange. I believe that distance and the anonymity of the internet allowed Robert to share his life with me in a way few others have heard. What he said forced me to accept that, despite being well-read, I knew nothing about the effects of serving in a war zone.Ž The dinner portion of the evening will begin at 5 p.m. at Another Broken Egg Cafe and will include a fixed price menu with a selection of three main courses. The meal will include wine and/or a cold beverage. The cost for both the dinner and the show is $40. The play will begin at 7 p.m. Seating is limited. Tickets can be ordered by calling 385-1584.

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 20-26, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYTransport to freedom, however you can get it Imagine a world in which Lincoln is assassinated while president-elect and the Civil War never happens. Imagine a world where slavery is still legal in four Southern states nicknamed The Hard FourŽ: Louisiana, Missis-sippi, Alabama and the Carolinas (now one state). Slaves (or PBs, as in Person Bound to Labor) are tattooed at the base of the throat with the brand of their corporate owners. Blacks in the rest of the country are subjected to stops at any time and must carry papers with them at all times that prove theyre free. Thats the alternate reality in Underground AirlinesŽ ($26, Mulholland Books), a gripping novel by Ben H. Winters. His antihero, Victor, is a former slave who, in exchange for his freedom, tracks down escaped slaves for the U.S. Mar-shals Service. Of course, his freedom is questionable; hes still enslaved, only by another system. And his work is repre-hensible: betraying his own, in order to not be sent back to a corporate planta-tion himself. But Victor feels he has no option. A small tracking device was implanted at the top of his spine and if he tries to run, hell be returned into slavery in the South. He calls himself a thief, a con man. He steals others freedom and presents himself as different people, living in the shadows and putting on whatever new identity seems to fit the situation. I have a lot of names. Or, more precisely, it was my practice at the begin-ning of a new job to think of myself as having no name at all. As being not really a person at all.  ƒ I was not a person but a manifestation of will. I was a mechanism „ a device,Ž he says early in the novel. (I was) a man with no name, a quasiemployee of a clandestine branch, mov-ing from city to city, job to job, under the supervision of a voice on a Mary-land telephone.Ž Instead of being called an underground railroad, the covert system of helping slaves escape is the Under-ground Airlines, with pilots and cargo and connections. Underground Airlines is a figure of speech,Ž Mr. Winters writes. Its the root of a grand, extended metaphor, pilots and stewards and baggage handlers and gate agents. Connecting flights and air-port security. The Airlines flies on the ground, in package trucks and unmarked vans and stolen tractor-trailers. It flies in the illicit adjustment of numbers on packing slips, in the suborning of plan-tation guards and the bribing of border security agents ƒ Ž Though it eats him up inside, Victor also takes a perverse pleasure in his work: Thats the problem with doing the devils work. It can be pretty satisfy-ing now and again.Ž But he wrestles with his conscience, with his identity: I was a monster, but way down underneath I was good. Wasnt I? ƒ Good underground. In the buried parts of me are good things,Ž he insists. Its easy to see why Underground AirlinesŽ debuted at No. 20 on The New York Times Best Seller List when it was released in July, and was No. 1 on the Indie Bestseller List. Entertainment Weekly magazine gave it an A-. The author, who is white, has said in interviews he was thinking about the deaths of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and others when he wrote his novel. The book is somewhat of a mystery/ detective novel, somewhat science fic-tion, turning the world as we know it upside down but creating a credible history. It is some ways alike to the one we live in and in some ways different. Mr. Winters takes this new history to logical conclusions: Singer James Brown defects to Canada and refuses to play the U.S. ever again; the Olympic athlete Jesse Owens wins his gold med-als, but winds up defecting to the Soviet Union, where he feels better treated. Underground AirlinesŽ is compelling, unpredictable, full of twists and turns. Its also deep, layers upon layers.‘Underground Railroad’Theres been a lot of buzz about Colson Whiteheads novel, The Under-ground RailroadŽ ($26.95, Doubleday), released in August. Its an examination of racism and slavery, with one touch of whimsy: In this world, the underground railroad is literally a railroad that runs underground, taking slaves to Northern cities. (Mr. Whitehead told Terry Gross on NPRs Fresh AirŽ that when he was a child and heard about the Underground Railroad, he imagined a subway running underneath the country. He told her he felt a bit upsetŽ when he learned that wasnt true.) Named an Oprah Book Club pick prepublication, its also been nominated for a National Book Award and has been onThe New York Times Best Seller list for seven weeks. Its protagonist is a young girl, Cora, whose mother escapes, abandoning her on the Georgia plantation where theyre enslaved. Coras left to fend for herself and eventually runs away with another slave, Caesar, by means of the Underground Railroad. Mr. Whitehead divides his novel into chapters about people or places, a kind of Gullivers Travels,Ž with each new state providing its own strange ways and rules, obstacles and challenges. He shows racism with all its myriad ugly faces; though Cora escapes the plantation, she winds up in South Caro-lina, where white people appear on the surface to be helpful. However, she winds up put on display at the Museum of Natural Wonders behind glass in dioramas of plantations and slave ships. And she discovers the local hospitals sterilizing escaped slaves without their permission, stealing our futures.Ž Truth was a changing display in a shop window, manipulated by hands when you werent looking, alluring and ever out of reach,Ž he has Cora say. The whites came to this land for a fresh start and to escape the tyranny of their masters, just as the freemen had fled theirs. But the ideals they held up for themselves, they denied others.Ž Mr. Whitehead is unflinching in his description of an America that uses black people as property, thinking noth-ing of hurting or killing them, an Amer-ica that also lied to Indians and massa-cred them, stealing their land for itself. Coras journey is gripping and heartbreaking. This is a masterful book that is both personal and wide reaching. Its interesting to note, too, that both novels stress the importance of reading in their protagonists lives. Victor, in Underground Airlines,Ž would spend whole days in the reading room of the big library downtown, a shadow in the corner; reading the great slave narra-tives, reading Ellison, Baldwin, Wright. Learning my own history. I read Zora Neale Hurstons masterpiece, the one that had, legendarily, been smuggled page by page out of a Florida cane plantation two decades before that state went free.Ž And Cora learns to read too, embodying the saying that the only thing more dangerous than a slave with a gun is a slave with a book. These two novels are not only great reads, but cut to the heart like only truth can. Q nancy The 14th Annual Feast of Little Italy presented by Arrigo Fiat of West Palm Beach seeks to unify the community again. Putting aside all of the politics that divide us, come Nov. 4, 5 and 6 to expe-rience and create memories with fam-ily and friends while enjoying authen-tic Italian food, entertainment, festival rides, games, bocce and more. The Feast is now in its 14th year.Jerry Somma, Feast president, says This is a special year, we are coming together to celebrate passion; passion for family, friends, music and heritage and right now our country feels a sense of passion. Regardless of your party preference, we say come together this weekend and be Italian and there is no challenge too big that a good cannoli cant solve.Ž This years entertainment will celebrate Italian and Italian-American artists. Headlining this years Feast will be Salvatore Valenti-netti (Heidi Klums golden buzzer), a finalist on NBCs 2016 Americas Got Talent.Ž This young crooner is known for his smooth vocals, from Dean Martin to Frank Sinatra, on Friday night. This years grand marshal, Joe Piscopo, an actor, singer, musician and comedian best known for starring on Saturday Night Live,Ž will perform on Saturday night in a show filled with music and laughs.

YesYou dont see many characters like Ben Afflecks Christian Wolff in The Accountant.Ž Hes autistic. Socially awk-ward. Brilliant with numbers. A merciless killer. Trained in martial arts. Has a moral code thats differ-ent from most. Theres nothing normalŽ or con-ventional about him, and thats what makes him „ and the movie „ so fun to watch. Ostensibly, Wolff is a mild-mannered, glass-es-and-pock-et-protector-wearing nerd, working as a lowly strip-mall accountant 20 miles outside of Chicago. But dig deeper „ as Trea-sury Department Director Ray King (J.K. Simmons, WhiplashŽ) blackmails under-ling Marybeth Medina (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) into doing „ and theres much more: Money laundering. Cooking the books for criminals all over the world. Secret identities. A private arsenal of weapons. Like Clark Kent, Wolff is all business in the office, Superman in the streets. While Marybeth tries to find Wolff, he gets a new assignment to help a robotics company thats about to go public identify a hole in its accounting books. Of all the things we see Wolff do, this is where he seems most comfortable. Its a room full of journals, and as he whispers the numbers to himself, scribbles on the board and does impossible math in his head, its clear hes doing it in a way that only makes sense to him. The montage here, coupled with the musical score by Mark Isham, successfully makes forensic accounting not only interesting, but also fascinating. Think about what an accom-plishment that is. Lamar Blackburn (John Lithgow), his sister Rita (Jean Smart) and his best friend Ed (Andy Umberger) run the robotics company. It was their accountant Dana Cummings (Anna Kendrick, Pitch PerfectŽ) who found the aforementioned discrepancy. When unexpected closure comes to the situation, chaos ensues and leads to the only decision Wolff makes that is incongruous with his personality. These gaps in logic risk possible audience disengagement from the story, particu-larly because it had been so sound to this point. Thankfully, theres a nice recovery and the plot never ventures too far in the wrong direction. As you can tell, theres plenty going on here. Although I think its a flaw to have supporting char-acters played by well-known actors „ includ-ing Jon Bernthal (The Walking DeadŽ) and Jef-frey Tambor (TransparentŽ) „ disappear for extended peri-ods of time, the focus appropri-ately remains on Wolff. This is smart. Director Gavin OConnor (WarriorŽ) and screenwriter Bill Dubuque (The JudgeŽ) know Wolff is unique and seek to explore him in as many ways as possible, which includes flashbacks to his difficult upbringing. Its easy to knock Mr. Afflecks limited acting skills, but lately hes smartly cho-sen roles he can handle well (ArgoŽ), and hes done the same here. He did ample research on autism and spent time with people who have the disorder, and it shows in his performance. Its a snide, unfair and possibly offensive remark to say the blank expression on Wolffs face and monotone voice are part of yet another bland performance from Mr. Affleck; lets give him credit for doing the research, handling the physical elements well and playing a thoroughly convincing and intriguing character effectively. Even though it has some excess at 128 minutes long, The AccountantŽ is a solid drama that has gritty action, pleasant sur-prises and a satisfying conclusion. Youll find other movies that are sort of like it, but you wont find another character quite like Christian Wolff. Q dan >> Anna Kendrick’s character says her father is an accountant; in real life, Ms. Kendrick’s mother is an accountant.


€ GypsyŽ (March 21-April 9) is arguably one of the finest musicals ever writ-ten and will be directed by Marcia Mil-grom Dodge. Besides the mainstage shows, the Maltz has a dizzying roster of auxiliary pro-grams including concerts, special events and conservatory productions. But its the regular season slates that have helped the Maltz buck a nation-wide trend of dwindling season subscrip-tions. This summer, the theater posted a record-setting 7,720 subscriptions and last season filled about 100,000 seats overall. Arguably the largest nonprofit theater in the state, it consistently wins Carbonell Awards for excellence. Although famous in the region for generous donors provid-ing $2.96 million of its enviable $7.5 million operating budget, its also famous for its emphasis on strategic planning worthy of a corporation. Last year, the budget was 40 percent contributed earnings and 60 percent earned, which is 10 percent above the national average of 50 percent earned. The theater is known for its ability to use those resources thriftily, such as hav-ing a comparatively small staff of about 25 full-time employees and about 10 part-time employees, although 80-100 visiting artists are employed during the produc-tion season. Ticket sales cover the costs of the productions. The Maltz is designed as a teamwork operation, but Mr. Kato is also clearly the leader with a hands-on approach to not just the balance sheet but in gently but firmly collaborating on the artistic efforts akin to producers like David Merrick and Cameron Mackintosh. Still, among his key jobs is picking the season. He doesnt consciously choose a unifying theme like some other theaters. He prefers offering an obvious variety of genres to his patrons. I only ever produce things that I l ove,Ž he said last month above the din in the companys new scene construction shop in West Palm Beach. But also I dont produce the Andrew Kato season because that would be very different.Ž For instance, he is eager to produce the Stephen Sond-heim musical about a serial killer bar-ber, Sweeney Todd,Ž and says that may happen someday, but his advisersŽ have strongly recommended against it right now. Hes OK with that „ for a little while. I think the number one rule of producing is know your audience and Im very attuned to what our audience is, but I also have a responsibility to stretch that, understand-ing that you have to challenge them from time to time.Ž So he mixes comfort food shows like Me and My Girl with the lacerating Dis-graced.Ž I happen to adore musical the-ater. But I get more excited, frankly, about the plays. Even when I go to see them on Broadway, I usually enjoy myself more at a play than at a musical (because) Im a little bit more judgmental because its my bailiwick, its my wheelhouse.Ž So when the Maltz does musicals, Mr. Katos hallmark is to encourage direc-tors to reinvent the old reliable titles. For instance, director Dodge and actress Vicki Lewis delivered a satisfying but reimag-ined version of Hello, Dolly!Ž in 2012. Were not attempting to recreate the Broadway version. We never do that any-way with our musicals. Just because youve seen the show before, its our responsibil-ity and our pleasure to reinvent the musi-cal within certain guidelines. You have to honor it to a certain extent, but thats the fun of it. You dont want to duplicate.Ž On the other hand, you cant frustrate audiences who expect to see certain iconic moments and tableaus. That balance will be a challenge when the Maltz mounts the Mel Brooks musical The Producers.Ž The grandfather of works like SpamalotŽ and The Book of Mormon,Ž The ProducersŽ was one of the first musicals to be so outrageous, especially coming after 9/11 and so much of the sadness and discord within our country. Suddenly you have this unadulterated no-holds-barred musical where youre asking should I be laughing or not,Ž Mr. Kato said. The key with good directors in such cases is they are all looking for a sense of truth within that piece. The audience will be with you if you find the truth in that piece.Ž In Dolly,Ž the truth was depicting a widow in late middle-age reawakening her life. Mr. Kato knows not everyone will like every title, but the secret to building sub-scriptions is a track record that instills trust in the quality of the productions, even when the patrons arent familiar with the show. They know that its going to be different, its going to be excellent, its going to be fresh, so sign up, come with us on our journey,Ž he said. But even in artistic choices such as choosing a season, the corporate planner is at work. For instance, the desire to try riskier fare is consciously balanced out by programming an antidoteŽ musical that is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. The Maltz even plans long term for a fiscal disaster. For me, over my last 11 years, its about creating infrastructure. Its about making sure that a theater company is able to sustain a loss. You want to have everything in place so that an unanticipat-ed blow doesnt shut you down,Ž he said. Mr. Kato and much of the Maltz family may be working hard to mount this seasons productions, but they are always thinking simultaneously about the future. Thats not hype. Mr. Kato has the roster of mainstage shows for the next 10 seasons roughed out on his smartphone. More prominently, the theater has been quietly raising money for a year from board members and staunch supporters toward a five-year capital improvement program: widening and deepening the current stage and backstage area, adding a third-floor rehearsal hall, enlarging the student conservatory training area and creating a second smaller theater where more risky plays and new works can be produced. Details will be released at a kickoff event at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 24. The new second space would feed Mr. Katos long-yearned-for desire to perform works that would stretch the theater, its artists and its audience „ with an eye toward attracting younger patrons. The price tag for the project is $25 million to $27 million, with $4 million pledged already, Mr. Kato said. The the-ater had hoped to receive $15 million as part of a proposed penny sales tax in Palm Beach County this fall, but county officials rejected it. Still, his board has decided to go ahead and try to raise the money from patrons. The theater expanded two years ago with a $2.5 million project that reno-vated and expanded its second floor with event space and office space and added seats in a premium skybox area. But the second space will allow for adding three more shows including other more challenging fare that he sees as essential to building a national reputation as a major regional theater. At a certain point to be a legitimate regional theater you have to be kind of like This isnt summer stock; were a regional theater and were going to take the chance. It will be strategic, but ƒ were moving into a direction where were going to be a little more daringƒ. I think when we do it, people are going to go, Oh my God, this is great! I really do.Ž „ For more information about the theaters upcoming shows and subscription options, visit or call the box office at 575-2223.

Hes the one who took care of Vincent, especially in his later years. They were very close and even lived together for a while in Paris. So most of the play is Theo, but there are places where I switch and become Vin-cent, which is really Theos interpretation of Vincent „ Vincent as seen through his brothers eyes.Ž He said the play includes more than 100 high-resolution projections of Vincents artwork on a large screen. Theo reveals his brother as few knew him, but he is not interested in telling the story of one mans death. Instead, he underscores a greater significance Vincents life brought to art and all of mankind. As seen through Theos eyes, Vincent van Gogh continues to live on as a symbol of inspiration, cour-age, passion and the lust for life that art inspires in all of us. What I hope audiences will take away from Vincent is a deeper understanding of who he was,Ž Mr. Briggs said. And a better appreciation of the struggles he went through. I think most people dont know about Vincent van Gogh beyond him being a very talented artist who cut off his ear and was institutionalized for mental illness. Like Theo, I want the audience to see that this was a man of immense talent and passion who was a 1,000-watt light bulb in a 10-watt world.Ž Q VINCENTFrom page 1 “Vincent”>> When: 7 p.m. Oct. 21, 7 p.m. Oct. 22 and 2 p.m. Oct 23. >> Where: Kravis Center’s Rinker Playhouse, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach.

B18 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 20-26, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY VINOHere comes the judgeA few samples arrived the other day from the Judge Palmer Wine Company. The bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon reading Beckstoffer Georges III vineyardŽ got my attention big time. Andy Beckstoffer is probably the most famous grape grower in America, selling fruit only to the highest-quality winemakers at a price per ton that would make your eyes pop. I had to find out how the owners of this winery, which Id never heard of, could convince Mr. Beckstoffer to sell them any of his precious grapes, so I called them up and spoke to Palmer Emmitt, one of the principals. Turns out Mr. Emmitt and Beckstoffer go way back, and that helps. My journey into wine was a long and winding road,Ž Mr. Emmitt recalls. His father was a collector of Bordeaux and Napa Cabernets, but the first wine he was drawn to was a Pinot Noir from Oregon. Later on, while living in San Francisco, he met winemaker Michael Scorsone, who is now his business partner. Michael was working as an assistant winemaker at Failla, making absolutely stunning Sonoma Coast Pinot Noirs, and amazing Syrah and Chardonnay,Ž he told me. He let me taste them from the barrel.Ž That was all it took.Mr. Emmitt quit his job and moved to Sonoma. Wine was in the Scorsone familys blood. My father was born in Sicily,Ž Mr. Scorsone told me. He would make wine in the garage when I was growing up and serve it to me mixed with 7-Up.Ž The younger Mr. Scorsone went to the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y., where he really caught the wine bug. Working a few harvests in Val-policella, Italy, and New Zealand rounded out his education. He and Mr. Emmitt teamed up in 2011.We wanted to make wines that we want to drink,Ž Mr. Emmitt said. They should be authentic and reflect the place where they are grown.Ž Mr. Scorsone believes the winemakers job is to get the grapes from the vine to the bottle with as little manipulation as possible. Our mantra in the winery is, Do less,Ž he said. Its not any sort of winemaking doctrine like organic or bio-dynamic. Its just what we think is the best wine possible from each lot.Ž The partners named the winery in honor of Mr. Emmitts grandfather, who was a judge in the California Gold Rush town of Placerville. We thought there was something very fitting about the parallel between what a judge does in a courtroom and what we think the winemakers role should be in the winery,Ž he mused. You need the knowledge and expertise to understand everything that happens, but the restraint to ensure that you dont interfere unnec-essarily or impart too much bias.Ž He calls it wine justice.Ž In my sampling, I discovered that the partners do justice to the prized Beckst-offer fruit, as well as to the grapes they source from other growers. As a small winery, they dont have extensive distribution, but joining the wine club at offers sig-nificant discounts on all their offerings. Try them, and judge them with a jury of your peers. Q Judge Palmer 2012 Malbec Bavarian Lion Vineyard ($45) … Deep chocolate, cassis and mineral aromas on the nose with black plum flavors accented with tobacco, smoke, chocolate and a nice long finish. WW 91. Q Judge Palmer Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage Select 2012 ($40) … A blend of lots from several vineyards, this wine shows the results of spending 24 months in mostly new French oak barrels. The fruit aromas are big and bold, with chocolate and smoke flavors on the palate. Id give this one a little more time. WW 92. Q Judge Palmer Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 Beckstoffer Georges III Vineyard ($115) … This is the big wine I mentioned at the start of this column. Dark garnet in the glass, huge perfume on the nose and silky smooth on the palate. With brown leather, cinnamon, brioche and big black fruit throughout, it shows what a good wine-maker can do with great fruit. WW 95.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: I recently heard of a bug that attacks vineyards and kills the vines. Can you tell me what it is?„ Julian K., EsteroA: Unfortunately, grapevines have many enemies, including ones with four, six and eight legs. One of the worst is Pierces Disease, which is spread by an insect intriguingly named the glassy-winged sharpshooter.Ž The disease inter-feres with the flow of water throughout the vines, scorches the leaves and kills the plant.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 20-26, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19The Dish: Cachetn and Pollo tacos The Place: Cholo Soy Cocina, 3715 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; or 619-7018. The Price: Two tacos for $6 The Details: Far be it from me to race to a new restaurant the week it opens. But something told me chef Clay Carnes had things under control at Cholo Soy Cocina, along West Palm Beachs Antique Row. Cholo is a slang term for the indigenous people of Latin America, Ecuador in particular. But it also means mixed,Ž and Mr. Carnes mixes a variety of Latin cuisines. Tacos share menu space with ceviche, yuca fries and plantain chips. We tried the cachetn and pollo tacos.The cachetn was filled with bits of tender smoked beef cheek and tangy pickled scallion. Mr. Carnes gets extra points for the creamy queso that cooled the tacos down. Also tasty: The pollo, or chicken, which had a garlicky kick courtesy of the anchiote sofrito. It was served atop a purple cabbage slaw and with a cool but spicy smoked chile crema. The tiny space was packed the Friday night we visited. But communal tables fill a small courtyard to the rear and lend a convivial spot to nosh and unwind with a brew from the small, but well-chosen list. Q „ Sc ott Simmons T he marquee outside Lake Worths iconic Farmer Girl restaurant reads best soups in town.Ž Customers wont argue. From vegetable to navy bean to chicken with rice, few can resist a bowl with dinner. The man behind the soups „ and the restaurant „ is Pete Roubekas, a Greek immigrant who opened the eatery 35 years ago after moving to Florida from Ohio. He owned and operated several restaurants in Ohio, but he wasnt always a restaurateur. I was a hairdresser and hairdressers make enough money to live, but I wanted to make more money,Ž Mr. Roubekas, who moved to the U.S. in 1957, said. When you come from overseas, you come to prove yourself.Ž Mr. Roubekas proved himself over and over again, opening several restaurants, first several in Ohio and eventually two in Florida. Besides the Farmer Girl on Dixie Highway in Lake Worth, he had a second location in Lake Park. It was very good, but too much work going back and forth with both places,Ž he said. When 7-Eleven wanted to buy the building about 18 years ago, Mr. Roubekas sold it, and its still a 7-Eleven. He learned to cook from two chefs at his restaurants in Ohio. I had a lot of energy and I love what I do,Ž he said. For me, every dish is spe-cial, everything is a favorite. Everything I do has to be first class. They used to call me TLC, because they said I treated everything that way.Ž Mr. Roubekas gets up every morning at 4:40 a.m. to prep for breakfast. He makes all the soups, too. Besides American fare, Farmer Girl serves Greek dishes including Spinach pie, moussaka, souvlaki, Greek salad and gyros, of course. (Sometimes that mar-quee boasts the best gyro in town.Ž) His customers come from all over the world, he said. People can feel our warm welcome,Ž he said. Many people say that.Ž Whats his biggest problem in running the restaurant? I dont have any problems,Ž Mr. Roubekas said. If a cook doesnt show up, I fill in. Ive learned not to get upset. I make the best of things.Ž One of his best-known and beloved community endeavors is Farmer Girls annual free Thanksgiving dinner „ tur-key and all the trimmings. Its not just for the poor and homeless „ anyone with-out a place to go that day can partake. Home deliveries also are part of the plan. Ive done it for 33 years, but this will be my last,Ž Mr. Roubekas, 78, said. Its a lot of work „ we start two weeks in advance „ and my power is not what it used to be. My family would like me home and I would like to be there.Ž He and his wife reside in Lake Clarke Shores. They have three grown children „ one son, two daughters and eight grandchildren. While he has no immediate plans to retire, its not out of the question, he said. Maybe the kids will run it. Well see. I take it one day at a time.Ž Pete RoubekasAge: 78 Original Hometown: Bolati, Greece Restaurant: Farmer Girl, 1732 N. Dixie Highway, Lake Worth; 582-0317.

4 healthy living OCTOBER 2016 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYNo double chin, no surgery, no kidding! A re you bothered by the fullness beneath your chin? Youre not alone. You may be staring at your submental fullness or your double chinŽ wondering why it will not go away. A double chin is a common, yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can detract from an otherwise bal-anced and harmonious facial appear-ance, lead to an older and heavier look, impact a broad range of adults and may be caused by aging, genetics and/or weight gain. Fortunately, KYBELLA can help. KYBELLA is the first and only FDAapproved treat-ment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin (submental full-ness) by physically destroying fat cells. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBEL-LA permanently destroys fat cells. Once theyre gone, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Your bodys natural metabolism then processes the fat cleared from the treatment area. The nonsurgical, in-office injection process may take as little as 15 to 20 minutes and will be tailored to your submental fat distribution and treat-ment goals. Prior to your treatment session, your healthcare provider may apply ice/cold packs or topical and/or local anesthesia to the treatment area to make you more comfortable. After treatment, apply ice or a cold pack to the treatment area for 10 to 15 minutes, as needed. You may return to work and all regular activities as tolerated. Although results are noticeable, they are not immediate. We generally start with 2 treatments in our office and then assess your results from there. Each treatment is at least one month apart. Typically results appear within weeks to months, and keep improving as additional treatments are administered. KYBELLA may be right for you if:€ Youre bothered, unhappy, self-conscious or embarrassed by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness € You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are € You dont want to have sur-gery € You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away KYBELLA is one of the fastest, safest, and most convenient ways for you to address your double chin without surgery or extensive downtime. If youd like to learn more about this treatment or are interested in scheduling a consul-tation appointment, call Youthful Bal-ance Medical Center. KYBELLA may be combined with other cosmetic procedures the same day, such as Botox and Juvederm. Earn points to save on KYBELLA and other aesthetic treatments with the Brilliant Distinctions Rewards Pro-gram. This allows you to achieve your aesthetic goals, while keeping the cost affordable. So, what are you waiting for? Schedule your consultation today and get ready to reveal your results. Q Jennifer Nicholson Nurse Practitioner Youthful Balance 10887 N. Military Trail, No. 7, Palm Beach Gardens(561) Exercise releases hormone that helps shed, prevent fat UF HEALTH I f a workout feels like more pain than gain, heres some motivation: Exer-cise releases a hormone that helps the body shed fat and keeps it from forming. A group led by a University of Florida Health researcher has learned more about how the hormone irisin helps con-vert calorie-storing white fat cells into brown fat cells that burn energy. Irisin, which surges when the heart and other muscles are exerted, also inhibits the formation of fatty tissue, according to the researchers. The findings show that irisin may be an attractive target for fighting obesity and diabetes, said Li-Jun Yang, M.D., a professor of hema-topathology in the UF College of Medi-cines department of pathology, immunol-ogy and laboratory medicine. The study is believed to be the first of its kind to examine the mecha-nisms of irisins effect on human fat tissue and fat cells, researchers said. Irisin appears to work by boosting the activity of genes and a protein that are crucial to turning white fat cells into brown cells, the researchers found. It also significantly increases the amount of energy used by those cells, indicating it has a role in burning fat. Researchers collected fat cells donated by 28 patients who had breast reduc-tion surgery. After exposing the samples to irisin, they found a nearly fivefold increase in cells that contain a protein known as UCP1 that is crucial to fat burning.Ž We used human fat tissue cultures to prove that irisin has a positive effect by turning white fat into brown fat and that it increases the bodys fat-burning abil-ity,Ž Dr. Yang said. Likewise, Dr. Yang and her collaborators found that irisin suppresses fat-cell formation. Among the tested fat-tissue samples, irisin reduced the number of mature fat cells by 20 to 60 percent com-pared with those of a control group. That suggests irisin reduces fat storage in the body by hindering the process that turns undifferentiated stem cells into fat cells while also promoting the stem cells dif-ferentiation into bone-forming cells, the researchers said. Knowing that the body produces small quantities of fat-fighting irisin under-scores the importance of regular exer-cise, Dr. Yang said. More than two-thirds of U.S. adults are overweight or obese, according to the National Institutes of Health. While its possible that the beneficial effects of irisin could be developed into a prescrip-tion medication, Dr. Yang said that is uncertain and remains a long time away. Instead of waiting for a miracle drug, you can help yourself by changing your lifestyle. Exercise produces more iri-sin, which has many beneficial effects including fat reduction, stronger bones and better cardiovascular health,Ž Dr. Yang said. The present study builds on other findings about irisins beneficial effects. In 2015, Dr. Yangs group found that the hormone helps improve heart func-tion in several ways, including boosting calcium levels that are critical for heart contractions. In June, Dr. Yang and a group of scientists in China showed that irisin reduced arterial plaque buildup in mouse models by preventing inflamma-tory cells from accumulating, resulting in reducing reduction of atherosclerosis. The findings about irisins role in regulating fat cells sheds more light on how working out helps people stay slender, Dr. Yang said. Irisin can do a lot of things. This is another piece of evidence about the mechanisms that prevent fat buildup and promote the development of strong bones when you exercise,Ž she said. Q YANG

6 healthy living OCTOBER 2016 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYWake up your body, mind and world F itness can improve your health, your happiness and the harmony you experience in your world. There are countless ways to get in shape. But it is hard to stay in shape when you dont stay healthy. It is hard to stay healthy when you dont stay happy. And it is hard to stay happy when you dont stay in line and in harmony with your world. Of course these four subjects are all mutually supportive and they largely over-lap to make up a complete person. Most efforts in one area will fail as long as the min-imum attention is not paid to all others. For this reason, all areas need some attention. So where do you start? Here science is finally rewarding us with an amazing new insight: Apart from a cascade of beneficial, mood enhancing hormonal activity in the brain, moving your body is actu-ally the best possible exercise for your brain. Even more surprising: This exer-cise leads to neurogenesis in the Hip-pocampus, improving learning and cog-nitive abilities. Just like your muscles, your brain actually grows new cells with vigorous exercise. Over a million students and 20,000 teachers in the US and around the world are already spending more time exercising and less time in class, enhancing their academic achievements and national standard test results. There is no age at which you cannot grow new nerve cells and enhance your mental and bodily abilities. These revolutionary insights are now proven in large scale, world wide studies and described by revolutionary thinkers like Harvard professor John J. Ratey, M.D., Eric Hagerman, Edward Hallowell, Richard Manning and many others, in books such as the national bestseller Go Wild.Ž So the answer is now clear: Your new life starts with exercis-ing your body. The best exer-cise for your brain is vigorous physical exercise. Your entire life will follow. With Lilas training you will soon feel much closer to the purpose of your life: To live it more fully and to bloom and blossom and flourish. Lila was undefeated Australian national wrestling cham-pion for 15 years in a row, a feat impossible to achieve if youre not highly trained, healthy, superbly motivated and happy and in harmony with your world and the pur-pose of your life. It also shows how consistent and deter-mined she was, maintaining all her attributes and abili-ties at that highest level for a decade and a half. If you want your training to warrant consistent results and to change your life sus-tainably, Lila will take you by the hand and be your guide as long as it takes for you to be fully self sufficient and continue blooming, blossoming, flourishing and living your life to the fullest.

The PSA screening involves a blood test that identifies levels of prostate spe-cific antigen, a protein produced by the prostate gland. The test can determine when cancer exists, but it often wrongly identifies nonexistent cancer. These false positiveŽ results can cause anxiety and lead to unnecessary follow-up tests. Because of this, the task force issued a draft recommendation against routine screening in 2011 and a final guideline in 2012. Diagnoses of early prostate cancer in American men ages 50 and older dropped by 19 percent between 2011 and 2012 and by another 6 percent the follow-ing year, according to lead researcher Dr. Ahmedin Jemal, vice president of the American Cancer Societys surveillance and health services research program. While many men may have been spared unnecessary anguish, however, less frequent screening might have a downside. Some experts worry more men will develop potentially fatal pros-tate cancer as a result. Prostate cancer is a slow-growing tumor, so it takes time,Ž Dr. Jemal says. We may see it over the next three to five years.ŽDr. Anthony DAmico, chief of genitourinary radiation oncology at Brigham and Womens Hospital and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, says there is a balance in the task force recom-mendation.Some men who should not be treated are not being diagnosed, but that also means some men who should be treated are either losing the chance for cure or pre-senting later and needing to undergo more treatment and more side effects for a pos-sible cure,Ž Dr. DAmico says. The answer to this dilemma, he adds, will come with personalized medicine based on risk-based screening „ screening men preferentially in good health and at high risk.The decrease in diagnoses of earlystage prostate cancer might be partly due to a misreading of the task forces recommendation, adds Dr. Otis Brawley, the cancer societys chief medical officer, who believes the task force guideline is being misunderstood. The key word that is missed is routine,Ž Dr. Brawley says. The task force does not recommend routine screening. This in my mind means they are not against all screening. Also, they do call for informed decision-making regarding potential risks and potential benefits.Ž Using the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results database, Dr. Jemal and colleagues looked at cases of prostate cancer diagnosed between 2005 and 2013 in men ages 50 and older. They found that from 2012 to 2013, early prostate cancer diagnosis rates per 100,000 men dropped from 356.5 to 335 in men ages 50-74. In men older than that, early cancer diagnoses fell from 379 to almost 354 per 100,000 men. Meanwhile, cases of advanced prostate cancer remained stable in both age groups. The findings leave some room for interpretation. Other factors leading to the decline could include improved pre-ventive measures and changes in the incidence of unknown risk factors, Dr. Jemal says. But Dr. DAmico believes fewer screenings explain the statistics. The drop in the diagnosis of early prostate cancer is consistent with the drop in PSA screening,Ž he says. The main issue is whether this is an early sign that more high-risk disease, more disease that has spread and more deaths from prostate cancer will happen, he adds. My opinion is that we are probably heading for more high-risk and meta-static (cancer that has spread) disease in the next year or two, followed by more deaths from prostate cancer if the decline in screening is maintained,Ž he says. Dr. DAmico adds that the only hope for a boost in PSA screening lies with the results of a British trial. If those findings, expected next year, show a benefit for PSA testing, perhaps testing rates will rebound, he says. The American Cancer Society recommends that men make an informed decision with their health care provider about whether to be screened for pros-tate cancer.Ž The decision should be made after getting information about the uncertainties, risks and potential benefits of prostate cancer screening. The discus-sion about screening should take place at: Q Age 50 for men at average risk of prostate cancer who are expected to live at least 10 more years. Q Age 45 for men at high risk of developing prostate cancer. This includes blacks and men who have a first-degree relative (father, brother or son) diag-nosed with prostate cancer at an early age (younger than 65). Q Age 40 for men at even higher risk (those with more than one first-degree relative who had prostate cancer at an early age). After these discussions, men who still want to be screened should get the PSA blood test. The digital rectal exam may also be used as a part of the screening, the cancer society says. Q

NIAAA is part of the National Institutes of Health. As reported online in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology, researchers led by Raye Litten, Ph.D., acting director of the NIAAA Division of Medications Development, conducted a randomized clinical trial of ABT-436, a new com-pound designed to block the effects of vasopressin, a neuropeptide produced in the hypothalamus of the brain. Vasopressin helps to regulate the pituitary adrenal axis and other brain circuits involved in emotion,Ž Ms. Lit-ten explains. As such, it plays a role in regulating stress, anxiety and their interaction with alcohol use disorders.Ž Ms. Litten, first author Megan Ryan and their NIAAA colleagues worked with NIAAAs multi-center Clinical Investigations Group to recruit 144 alco-hol-dependent adult men and women for the 12-week study. During a 28-day baseline period, female participants consumed at least 28 drinks per week, while male participants consumed at least 35 drinks per week. Participants were then randomized to receive either placebo tablets or ones containing the ABT-436 compound. Researchers moni-tored participants alcohol consumption as well as their mood changes and smoking habits, as these are known to co-vary with alcohol consumption. Researchers found that participants receiving ABT-436 experienced more days of alcohol abstinence than those receiving the placebo. In particular, par-ticipants who reported high levels of stress appeared to respond better to ABT-436, in that both the frequency of their drinking and the number of heavy drinking days they experienced decreased. Our findings suggest that potential future studies with drugs targeting vasopressin blockade should focus on populations of people with alcohol use disorder who also report high levels of stress,Ž says Ms. Ryan, who is a clinical project manager in the NIAAA Division of Medications Development. Smokers might be another population that could benefit from ABT-436. In addition to its effects on alcohol consumption, study participants receiv-ing the new compound experienced a reduction in smoking. The researchers suspect that ABT-436 might target the same areas in the brain that relate to withdrawal and stress and, in the pro-cess, influence both tobacco and alcohol use disorders. Additional research is needed to determine if that is the case. The NIAAA is the primary U.S. agency for conducting and supporting research on the causes, consequences, prevention and treatment of alcohol use disorder and alcohol-related problems. NIAAA also disseminates research find-ings to general, professional and aca-demic audiences. Additional alcohol research information and publications are available at NIH the nation's medical research agency and a component of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Ser-vices, includes 27 institutes and centers.
