Black Friday is known as the start of the Christmas shopping season, but the unofficial kickoff party for the glories of holiday eating, drink-ing and socializing comes two days earlier on Thanksgiving Eve, sometimes called Black Wednes-day, Blackout Wednesday, or even Drinksgiving. Family and friends are back in town. Nostalgia is nearing its yearly peak. And with few responsibilities for days to come for a lot of peo-ple, other than stuffing themselves silly, bars and restaurants across South Florida prepare for a night that ranks somewhere between New Years Eve and any given Sat-urday. It is typically one of the busier bar nights of the year,Ž said Kevin Offer-man, owner of City Tavern in downtown Fort Myers. He staffs up as if it were going to be a weekend night. For a couple reasons, obviously its a holiday the next day,Ž he said. Another reason is a lot of people come back into town, family comes back into town from college or elsewhere and they want some-thing to do the night before they spend all day with their family.Ž Black Wednesday revelers would also be well advised to take an Uber or a cab, as police departments too are gearing up for Bars, restaurants, police prepare for Black Wednesday BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@” SEE WEDNESDAY, A16 X INSIDE LESLIE LILLY A2 OPINION A4PETS A6HEALTHY LIVING A16 BUSINESS A18MOVING ON UP A19REAL ESTATE A21ARTS B1 COLLECTORS B2EVENTS B6-9PUZZLES B15CUISINE B19 Download our FREE App todayAvailable on the iTunes and Android App Store.

Call 844-447-4687 or visit COMMENTARYHalcyon daysIt is Thanksgiving time again. It took a long time to get here. The 2016 elec-tion cycle left little room to anticipate anything but its conclusion. The nation is exhausted. We smart from self-inflict-ed wounds. We brutalized our electoral system and the democratic systems sup-porting it. No one can truly say when or even if our democracy will fully recover. The grievous injuries done are still being tallied. Radical populism rocked the nation to its core. The rest of the world looks on in confusion and dismay. If America were democracys church, it would be time to call for a revival of spirit; for good shepherds to come and lead its flock from the wilderness and into safer pastures; for the demons of hate and violence to be cast out that threaten our unity; and for the moral corruption of false prophets to be revealed. I imagine it like this because democracys church is like no other. The words and deeds of the Founding Fathers are the rock on which the church is built. The Constitution and the nations Bill of Rights stand as witness to its members. It is a living church infused by free-doms spirit and the rule of law. When the churchs glory shines bright, an altar call must surely follow. It invites congregants to stand and pledge alle-giance to the United States of America, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Its wisest elders nod in affirmation. They know a fiery end awaits congre-gants refusing to repent their hateful, wicked ways. They warn: Woe be unto those who abandon their fellow Ameri-cans at the gates of a nativist hell. Judg-ment day will come. A democracy that abandons its historical values and prin-ciples endangers its very soul and the temple to which it is entrusted cannot prosper if its leadership abandons faith, hope and love „ and love is the great-est of these. We bow our heads and say, Amen.Ž Well, I am not expecting this sermon or an altar call to conscience any time soon. But the celebration of the Thanks-giving holiday is a good place to start the soul-searching and healing. This national holiday is a deeply American tradition. We, the people, come together to give thanks for the blessings we commonly share as Americans. Being reminded of this has served us well throughout our history. An altar call for a national day of thanksgiving was first made by George Washington in 1789. And no wonder: Birthing a new nation proved to be a momentous undertaking. One year ear-lier, the final draft of the Constitution finally emerged from the political rapids. But it wasnt a done deal. The quarrelsome states had to ratify it. There were high-level arm-twisting and artful compromise. Few precedents existed to lubricate the way. Imagine how tumultuous the process. Consider the political acumen involved. This was high church, indeed. But the job got done. Nine states ratified the historic document. That met the threshold required for the new Constitu-tion to become binding among all the states. Once ratified by the remaining four states, the countdown began for the transfer of power from the old to the new form of government. That moment arrived on March 4, 1789. On that day, the Confederation Congress handed over the keys to a new government. The first session of the U.S. Congress followed in New York City. Soon after, in late April, George Washington, former commander of the Con-tinental Army, was elected unanimously by the Electoral College as the first presi-dent of the United States. Congress kept on working. It tweaked the founders framework, reaching agree-ment in late September to ratify 12 con-stitutional amendments „ 10 of which comprised the Bill of Rights „ and sent them to the states for ratification. All 13 of the original colonies approved what Congress proposed. So, 1789 was, by any measure, a very big year. Washington thought so, too, but his proclamation called for just a one-time, national day of thanksgiving. But the idea caught on. The holiday continued to be celebrated in the decades that followed. Family and communities assembled to replicate the mythical hal-cyon days of the Pilgrims first Thanks-giving in the New World. It was the first harvest of the worlds oldest democracy. In November 1863, during the Civil War, President Abraham proclaimed Thanksgiving Day a federal holiday on the fourth Thursday of every Novem-ber. The times were not unlike our own „ violent disruption of civil society, a nation deeply divided, with disunion a genuine threat. Lincolns proclamation, written by his secretary of state, asked Americans to make penitence for our national per-verseness and disobedience,Ž and to com-mend to Gods care those experiencing the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged.Ž It implored the Almighty to heal the nations wounds and to restore it, as soon as may be con-sistent with Divine purposes, to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and Union.Ž One can only say, Amen.Ž Q „ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

Im guilty of the second of those charges „ underestimation „ even if Mrs. Clinton did win the popular vote in the United States, as I expected (I did not expect her to lose the electoral college). So Im an elitist, too. Thats the way it is. There are many reasons people inked the ballot football next to Trump-Pence, punting it into the American future, and Im familiar with most. Family members, friends, neighbors, people with whom I work or play „ many are Trump sup-porters. I listen to all of them. Whew,Ž wrote one of my cousins, a cattle ranch-er and ardent Trumper. Now lets give him a chance.Ž Im good with that. My Facebook feed is not just an echo cham-ber of my own thoughts expressed by friends,Ž as another cousin put it about his own. But I embrace the tag elitistŽ because all of a sudden its a Genetically Modi-fied Organism of a word, a GMO with an altered meaning. Elitists are no lon-ger people who think theyre better than other people. Now, the word is synony-mous with critic.Ž If you criticize Mr. Trump, youre an elitist.Ž You dont understand working people, you dont understand farmers, you never recognized that America begins west of the Appalachians,Ž as a conservative Swarthmore College his-tory professor once said. Needless to say, Im critical of anybody who calls Mexican immigrants rapists and grabs women by their felini-ties, or brags about it, whether he lives east or west of the Appalachians. Im critical of anybody who spends almost all of his life on welfare „ the beneficiary of Daddys money; the benefi-ciary of the money and support of U.S. taxpayers who have to make up what he doesnt pay for infrastructure, for war, for education, for health care; the beneficiary of special deals working Americans dont get, a man who artfully avoided military service or any other kind of service. So its easy to be an elitist, for me and for more than 50 million others. One of the myths about Mr. Trump is that hes an outsider, somebody who broke through the deal-making insular world of politics-as-usual, a man who took on the system, who represents common men and some women (usu-ally white) who have been shoved to the periphery of the American dream by Washington insiders in both major par-ties, themselves special-interest elitists. In reality Mr. Trump is the ultimate insider. Hes the ultimate beneficiary of a system that rewards the wealthy and usually white with charity welfare deals that make winning the lottery look like winning a bowl of Brussels sprouts. But people who voted for Mr. Trump, more than 50 million of them, are not necessarily racists „ at least not per-sonal racists „ or morons, as somebody suggested I might believe. I do not believe that, even though I shared an observation by H.L. Mencken unearthed by a friend of mine: As democracy is perfected,Ž Mr. Mencken once wrote, the office of president represents more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their hearts desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.Ž That smacks of elitism in both the old and the new senses, just as this com-ment does from a non-American named Winston Churchill: The best argument against democracy is a five-minute con-versation with the average voter.Ž The brilliant Mr. Mencken, who worked in his hometown at The Baltimore Sun for 40 years, represented an odd and hard-to-swallow paradox of brilliant and unsentimental insight along with virulent anti-Semitism and racism. His biographer, Charles A. Fecher, pointed out that Mr. Mencken exhibited a curious mingling of total egalitari-anism ƒ and patronizing superiorityŽ toward blacks, whom he described as intellectually inferior to whites (in his private diary), while vehemently fight-ing to publish books or articles by black authors and criticizing segregation laws that still existed when he died in 1956. That paradox of attitudes reminds me of some people who voted for Trump, a paradox refitted in their cases to the contemporary culture and its issues of immigration, race and economics. For the moment, they have the final word. And I want to share some of that word with you here, part of a message that came to me about 36 hours after Mr. Trump became president-elect from one of the best and brightest of his supporters, Tommy Lee Cook. Mr. Cook is a musician, contractor and blues-club owner in Southwest Florida. Trump is awesome. When the left, right, globals, radicals, all line up against a man thats never been part of their corruption, its refreshing. HRC and the Democrats are the worst thing to ever happen to Black America. LBJs destructive Great Society and War on Poverty have put these poor souls in a place thats equal or worse than the old plantation. Do-gooders doing good whipping out the Government tit for all to suckle. Sad, sick and repugnant. AND, not understanding and looking the tenets of Sharia Law square in the eye and rebuking this caveman evil is an absolute farce of do-gooderism. Study it, know it, understand it; theres no co-existence with these adherents. Its just not possible. America and Freedom are about the individual, not the collective. Its as simple as that, or it once was. Regaining ones self-worth over the grip of the handout mentality will be the solution and salvation of the free spirit once again. If its not too late. I love me, and by loving me, all that my world touches is a better place.Ž Shades of Ayn Rand. Thats the way it is. Q roger ric BRADSHAWSheriff of Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office A big thanks to law enforcement agenciesIts been a very tough year for us in law enforcement. The job of policing communities has become more difficult and dangerous following the horrendous killings and attacks on police officers and deputies in Dallas, Baton Rouge and other cities. Suddenly, law enforcement is the target of protests and blame for every problem in our society. This is undeserved, unnecessary and Im not going to stand for it. Ive instructed my deputies to hold their heads up high as they go about their basic duties of serving and pro-tecting our residents. Yes, there have been problems in how some police officers handled situ-ations across the country and locally. However, as far as Im concerned, we dont have those problems in our jurisdiction. Problems often are created by those wanting to cause trouble. At the Sheriffs Office, I can tell you my deputies are highly trained in not only law enforcement tactics but also how to connect with residents and build trust between our agency and their communities. In fact, my staff has made training a part of just about everything we do. We not only adhere to training requirements set by Florida Department of Law Enforcement but we exceed them. We also strive to give residents a voice and be a part of our efforts in providing policing that is accountable, transparent, and equitable in the com-munities we serve. When we do some-thing wrong, we say we did something wrong. But no matter how hard we work, and how much our men and women sacri-fice to be deputies, our society unfairly expects so much more. I agree with what retiring Dallas Police Chief David Brown said at the tribute to the five offi-cers killed in his city this summer: Were asking cops to do too much in this country. We are. Every societal failure, we put it off on the cops to solve. Not enough mental health funding, let the cops handle itƒ. Here in Dallas, we got a loose dog problem; lets have the cops chase loose dogs. Schools fail; lets give it to the copsƒ. Thats too much to ask. Policing was never meant to solve all those problems.Ž Police officers have done nothing wrong. We take action when its needed to do our jobs and to protect residents, and ourselves, from attackers. Law enforcement follows a simple equation: If people dont try to shoot us, stab us, run us over with a car, or come at us in other ways, then everything is going to be fine. Its called being com-pliant. Officers are forced to take action only when people arent compliant. Once again, I stand behind and support all of my deputies. During these hard times, I ask you to join me in thanking our deputies and police offi-cers for putting themselves on the line to improve safety across Palm Beach County. Q

MARTY BECKER, KIM CAMPBELL THORNTON AND MIKKEL BECKERUniversal UclickThe 6-month-old Lab puppy grazed on the Christmas tree, gorging on glass bulbs, shimmery tinsel and more. When his owners brought him to the veteri-nary hospital, swollen with swallowed ornaments, he resembled a four-legged black tick with a pink tongue. A dose of barium to illuminate the intestinal tract on radiographs and force out the intesti-nal contents worked quickly, and before long, the dog was pooping out pieces of glass, string and wire hooks. As a big wad of tinsel emerged, it gave him the appearance of a giant New Years Eve party blower. No doubt all of us have memories of a cat scrambling up a Christmas tree, a swooshing dog tail overturning a lit menorah or a canine or feline counter cruiser tucking into the roast beast. As we enter the holiday season, its time to bone up on pet-proofing our homes to prevent pet mischief. After all, no one, least of all our dogs and cats, wants to spend any of the days between Thanks-giving and New Years in the veterinary ER. Weve gathered some cautionary tails „ er, tales „ to help you adapt your holiday traditions to the realities of life with pets. A pointer we know made the news when he ate a childs pushpin craft made with marshmallows to form a snow-man. The dog ate the entire thing and required emergency surgery to remove the pushpins. This year, the family will be surrounding the Christmas tree with a pet gate to prevent unauthorized ingestion of ornaments or presents. Cats, famed for their ability to leap tall counters in a single bound, and their partners in crime, dogs of all sizes, are notorious for stealing food off plates, tables and count ers, sticks of butter left out to soften, chocolate-covered espres-so beans and marshmallow Santas (ask us how we know this). And were not the only ones with larcenous animals. Dexter, a Parson Russell terrier, lives with a family who made the mistake of leaving a box of holiday chocolates sit-ting on their coffee table. They came home to find the contents strewn all over the floor, with much of it eaten. Dexter, apparently a discriminating dog, picked out his favorite varieties from the box. Fortunately the only outcome was a case of diarrhea, but now family members make it a point to put unsafe food items (or anything they dont want him to eat) well out of their dogs reach. In another case, curiosity didnt kill the cat, but it did cause him to get an unusual bath. Amanda Graves recalls the time her husband noticed that their Abyssinian kitten, Peyton, was looking a little greasy. Upon closer examination, he discovered Peyton was covered in chicken broth. He had pushed aside the silicone lid on a cooling stockpot of homemade chicken bone broth and had gone for a swim,Ž she says. Strategies that can help you head off holiday trouble include decorating with unbreakable ornaments, forgoing tinsel and putting unsupervised food out of reach. To protect her cat Kismet, Sharon Melnyk gave up using ribbons to wrap presents. He would try to eat any kind of ribbon and once bit my finger trying to get at a ribbon I was holding,Ž she says. Choose pet-safe plants, too. Poinsettias have a reputation for being poison-ous, but at most they cause mild stom-ach upset. Of greater concern are lilies, which can be lethal, and amaryllis bulbs and holly. Our pets dont mean to cause trouble during the holidays; they just want to help us celebrate. These simple precau-tions make it easier and less stressful to enjoy the season.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYthe prospect of setting up shop seems punishing and unlikely. But what if you could subtract a few major headaches like rent and payroll? Or if you could customize a space that is fully available when you want it, but isnt racking up utility bills when you dont? South Florida business owners are buying trucks, vans and buses to pro-vide residents with an array of services that span boutiques to auto repairs and giving customers a thrill at the same time. Its a business you can be very creative with,Ž said Kelly Calistri, owner of mobile boutique Couture To Your Door in Naples. She had a career in medi-cal research but realized that having two young children prevented her from working a regular 9-5 job. She decided it was time for her to pursue her longtime dream of owning a boutique. Originally, having a traditional storefront opera-tion was her goal, but after putting four wheels under her vision, she said she couldnt imagine serving her customers any other way. I think this is a really fun way to do it,Ž she said. I think the concept is fun and different and I think people like things they havent seen before.Ž According to the American Mobile Retail Association, about 82 percent of its members spent under $9,000 on their rig and about 91 percent spent under $9,000 to retrofit it to their speci-fications, less than a years rent on a commercial lease in a high traffic area. Business owners are often able to hit all the same shopping hotspots or at least capture similar customers to break even on their start-up costs within two years. People think, if I try and it doesnt work out, Im out $20,000 instead of $200,000,Ž said organization founder Stacey Jischke-Steffe. Mobile retail services, by following the model set before them by food trucks, rose in popularity during the Great Recession when credit was tight. It no longer seems to be just a trend, Ms. Jischke-Steffe said, and is understood to be a business model that stands alone. Some people might start a mobile busi-ness with the intention of eventually moving into a storefront, but they tend to keep the rig operational because it works. Its been incorporated into peoples business models in general,Ž she said. We hear from a lot of people closing their brick and mortars because they want that flexibility to really target their customer and drive directly to them ƒ were also seeing people who maybe always wanted to have a store so they open a truck first. They might eventu-ally go into a brick and mortar and keep the truck.Ž Curbside Gourmet, one of Palm Beach Countys most in-demand and visible food trucks, opened in 2010 and with its success, owners Matthew and Amanda Somsy have seen the catering side of their business flourish. Now they are exploring launching trucks in other markets. According to Mr. Somsy, busi-ness owners who have a good product can benefit from using a truck as a step-ping stone. Some people think that youre going to make a lot of money opening a food truck and its not going to happen,Ž he said. If you open up for a purpose, if you have a product that you really believe in, its really great to start and get it out there.Ž While Curbside Gourmet still dishes out popular items like its Maine lobster rolls to South Floridas hungry public and participates in food truck circuits, the Somsys served 180 weddings last year and the rig holds a special allure for private events. As far as the catering aspect, the truck itself has helped us for sure. It helps us bring the restaurant to our customers so they can have a house party and we wont have to use their kitchen,Ž Mr. Somsy said. A lot of your higher-end clients hire us to cater their parties because the truck color isnt so invasive.Ž It all seems to boil down to flexibility in the end, whether it is in hours, servic-es or inventory. Scott Keller, who owns Tropical Extremes in Naples and Dallas with his wife, Christine, travels all over South Florida and takes pride in bring-ing new dollars into Collier County with his laser tag and entertainment services. The benefit is that my company brings outside revenue into the county and my staff is paid with money outside the county,Ž he said. The result is that he can afford to pay his staff well and provide better service to customers. Were able to find the people and pay them really well to provide quality of DRIVENFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOCurbside Gourmet launched its food truck in 2010 in Palm Beach County.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2016 NEWS A11service. Theyre not bounce house staff, theyre entertainment,Ž he said. Mr. Keller simply wouldnt be in business if the pair operated Tropical Extremes in a facility, he said. His ini-tial research into the business 11 years ago revealed that if he ran it in under-air space, the doors would shut in two years. A couple of friends looked at the cost per square foot and an hour-long conversation turned into 30 seconds,Ž Mr. Keller said. They said I didnt have enough to make the first two years.Ž So he retooled his business plan and now caters to private parties in Collier and lots of corporate and college events in Lee and Dade counties. It requires a lot of time on the road, but its what makes his business work, he said. Sometimes, business owners simply like offering their customers the per-sonalized service mobility offers. Once people start offering services aboard a truck, they can offer more luxuri-ous or customizable services, like Keri McDonnell, who owns Unfurgettable Pet Grooming in Naples. Ms. McDonnell started her business in a storefront but packed everything onto wheels in 2011 because she saw the benefit of giving her customers to-your-door service. Her month-to-month expenses are still comparable to her brick-and-mortar operation, but her cli-ent base now consists of regular cus-tomers who keep her very busy. Its just a salon on wheels ƒ with mobile pet grooming, its more special-ized and tends to be more expensive than a salon because Im bringing it to customers,Ž she said. Its also less stress and people get that, so theyre willing to spend a little more for their pet.Ž Ms. McDonnell soon discovered that once she and a new customer have established a rapport, she could provide what she calls a latchkeyŽ service. The customer will provide her with a key so she can enter the home while he or she is at work, groom the animal in the truck and lock up when the appointment is over. They come home to a freshly groomed pet,Ž she said. Well lock up and text that we left. We provide not only convenience of going to the home „ clients dont have to even be home.Ž Then there are the traveling businesses that should have been on the road all along. Wayne Martin owns Waynes Mobile Mechanic Service in Fort Myers and saves motorists a lot of money when their cars break down. Basically, when you take a car to a garage, you usually dont have your vehicle and its an inconvenience to you,Ž he said. If your car is on the side of the road and its quick and easy, I can get you up and running instead of hav-ing it towed to a shop. It saves people money.Ž Because he doesnt have large equipment like a lift, Mr. Martin has to forgo complicated repairs. He can, however, maintain fleets of service vehicles much more efficiently than a garage can. I do serve a benefit to certain businesses like contractors who cant afford to have their truck down. Theres no inconveniencing the company by not having it.Ž Success, he said, depends on finding the right niche where he hopes that he can grow enough excellent side-of-the-road service that prevents people from having to pay for a tow truck. It can prosper very well on a consumer level,Ž Mr. Martin said. It would be a lot better than a road ranger because we could dispatch a mechanic right to your spot.Ž Freedom of movement also allows Mr. Martin to provide a very handy and rare service: used car inspections. Most people in the market for a new vehicle arent knowledgeable about how much to pay for reasonable wear-and-tear and what makes a car a lemon. For an hourly rate, Mr. Martin can inspect as many cars as customers have lined up in the time theyve contracted him for. You do have the right to inspect,Ž he said. Ill go out and inspect it top to bottom „ from wiper blades to tire compression „ and give you an analysis of what the car is and verify the car is worth the money.Ž Mr. Martin echoed the sentiments of other mobile business owners that emancipation from a brick-and-mortar operation allows him more creativity with his services, mostly because he doesnt have the financial pressure to meet overhead costs and be tied to one spot to meet with customers. Mobile businesses do have a few pitfalls, Ms. Jischke-Steffe said, and one is that local ordinances vary widely and prospective owners have to do a lot of research to find out where they can operate and within what parameters. The last thing you want to do is buy everything and find out you cant get a permit,Ž she said. I always recommend people to start at the local level and find out rules and regs before they run out to get the truck and trailer. Sometimes those rules can limit the size and type of vehicle ƒ even if there are strict regulations, there are often ways around them.Ž Its also good to follow business etiquette. Its not acceptable to open in front of a brick-and-mortar competitor. People cant just stop in when they want to and thats a major challenge. Im finding places to be available to them during the day and farmers markets are a big help,Ž said Couture To Your Doors Kelly Calistri. I dont go anywhere near other boutiques, so I mostly do private events. As long as I have permission of whoevers driveway Im in, I dont have a problem.Ž Curbside Gourmet deals with changing regulations in municipalities throughout South Florida. Food trucks cant sell food within Palm Beach Coun-tys downtown area, Martin County only allows them to sell food on private property and in Delray Beach, the res-taurant groups are so strong you cant even step foot on Atlantic Avenue,Ž Mr. Somsy said. You should definitely do your homework.Ž While its great to see large companies embrace the mobile trend in their marketing, Ms. Jischke-Steffe said it takes a particular type of person to own a mobile business and particular type of customer to enjoy using them. It reminded me of the tiny home movement. You have a certain type of personality that really embraces mobile businesses,Ž she said.

ConsignDesign&GARDENS GALLERY COMING SOON! BEHIND THE WHEELBMW 330e is everything to everyoneWe all have the one friend who has an outfit for every occasion but is still hesi-tant before stepping out the door. That indecisive pal will love the new BMW 330e. Just like someone who needs to be ideally dressed for every outing, this plug-in hybrid seems to want to please every crowd. It is a premium marque sedan, an eco-friendly all-electric, a roomy family vehicle and a sports car, all rolled into one package. A description like that would almost mean that we can end the review right here, but the balance this BMW has to walk is worth investigating further. After all, does doing everything well mean it can truly master anything? The design of the BMW 3-Series is quite handsome. Conservative sedan bodylines meet the furrowed brow head-lights and hallmark twin kidney grille to create a shape that has become a symbol of success in the junior executive parking lot. There is nothing on the hybrid that alters it. In fact, the only way people can tell its an eco-friendly plug-in hybrid is by the electrical outlet panel on the drivers fender and the eDrive badging on the c-pillar. That kind of incognito is good news for the green-minded manager who thinks the Toyota Prius doesnt have the prestige for a reserved parking space. Conversely, it might take a little extra explanation when pulling up to an Earth Day rally. Inside there isnt much to distinguish the eDrive version either. The 330e comes standard with nice features like a power drivers seat, dual zone climate control and a premium HD stereo with infotainment screen and iDrive. Of course, like any true BMW, theres a huge list of technology and luxury options that can add a mortgage onto this sedan. The only giveaway to the electrified power is a few discrete buttons that allow the driver to choose how the car best utilizes its voltage. The engine bay also doesnt look too different from the standard BMW lineup. The 2.0-liter turbocharged gas motor in the 330e is a 180 horsepower unit similar to whats available in the lesser 320i sedan. What is harder to see is the 87 hp electric motor thats sandwiched near the eight-speed transmission. The combination of the two isnt simple addition, so BMW lists the 330e at 248 total horsepower. This is the same as the conventionally powered 330i sedan, but the two vehicles behave quite differently. First, the 330e is a genuine plug-in hybrid. Leave it charged overnight on a standard 110V wall outlet, and in the morning owners can expect the whisper quiet drive for 14 miles or less. The all-electric power can even propel the car up to highway speeds of 75 mph. But for everyone whose commute is more than a few blocks, there is a better use for the battery power. The 330e can work with electricity in tandem with the gas engine. This creates an interesting situation where the torque-happy electric motor will be used to start from a stoplight and then hand off accel-eration duties to the turbo motor once it has spooled up to a more ideal rpm. Or at deceleration, the gas power will shut down, let the regenerative braking charge the batteries, and then start off again under stored battery energy. It is an engi-neering dance that maximizes both power and efficiency. Because the electric and gas power plants work together so often, it feels like BMW has toned down the exhaust note on the 330e. It creates a very quiet car that never loses the handling sharpness that is the bedrock of the 3-Series appeal. This alluring tango comes at a price. The BMW 330e starts at $45,095, which is $5,350 more than a 330i sedan. Even after tax credits, the most efficient drivers are not going to make up the electric efficien-cy savings of the plug-in hybrid for many years to come. In fact, when factoring in available government rebates, 330e shop-pers looking for premium green machines will not be too far away from Teslas all-electric Model S sedan.But the 330e has a place in this world.

Seth Finman, public infor-mation officer with the Naples Police Department. That includes more officers on patrol in shopping and business districts including Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South. In downtown West Palm Beach, OSheas Irish Pub is preparing to get slammedŽ said general manager Gary Murray in his lilting Irish brogue. Mr. Murray is originally from Limerick, Ire-land. Were all Irish here,Ž he said. The night typically is not as busy as New Years Eve or St. Patricks Day, he said. Its like having a bonus Saturday night in the middle of the week, and people take full advantage of it.Ž OSheas will feature $4 shots of Wild Turkey whiskey, Wild Turkey whiskey promo girls and live music with the band Axcents. The kitchen at British Open Pub in Bonita Springs will be turning out plen-ty of meatloaf, steak and kidney pie, cottage pie and especially fish and chips on Black Wednesday „ anything but turkey or ham „ for an influx of hungry families. Youve got a lot of people that have their grandkids and everybody come down for the holiday and they dont want to dirty up their kitchen the day before Thanksgiving, so they go out to eat,Ž said manager Cathy Foster. Thats the feedback I get from them.Ž Black Wednesday is usually the second busiest night of the year after St. Patricks Day at The Celtic Ray Public House, a bar and restaurant in down-town Punta Gorda. With the possible exception of Halloween,Ž said owner Kevin Doyle. He doesnt know why that is exactly, but took an educated guess. My theory is that all the kids from all over come to see their parents here and their parents go to bed at 9 oclock and theyre out partying,Ž he said. Mr. Doyles son, Celtic Ray co-owner Max Doyle, will also be out late that night „ working. The Celtic Rays mobile food truck will be at Fort Myers Brewing Company serving classics such as fish and chips, Scotch eggs and bat-tered bangers. He plans to serve many college kids whose parents live in the area. Maybe they drove from Gainesville or Tallahassee and want to see some of their hometown friends or have a beer or whatever,Ž he said. Certainly I like to have a beer after a long drive.Ž Just make sure that the drive comes before the beer (or four), not after. Q WEDNESDAYFrom page 1 One of the reasons Black Wednesday has become a party night is that college students like to reconnect with hometown friends. HEALTHY LIVINGPrepare to quit smoking during annual Great American Smokeout CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROLIf youre a smoker, quitting can be the single most important step you take to protect your health and the health of your loved ones. Smoking causes immediate damage to your body, and it threatens your future with increased risks for can-cer, heart attack, lung disease and early death. Many people have probably urged you to quit smoking already, but we all know that quitting can be hard. Just as every journey begins with a single step, so, too, does quitting. Thats where the American Cancer Societys Great American Smokeout can help. This event takes place on Nov. 19 and encourages smokers to quit or to use the day to make a quit plan. Free help is available at all times, not just on Nov. 19, at 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669) and at 1-855-DJELO-YA (1-855-335-3569) for Spanish speakers. When you quit smoking during the Great American Smokeout, you have the support of many other people across the nation. And youre taking an important step towards a healthier life. Five ways to get ready to quit Quitting smoking can be hard, so a good plan can help you get past symp-toms of withdrawal. Five steps can help. Q Set a quit date. Choose the Great American Smokeout or another quit day within the next two weeks. Q Tell your family and friends about your quit plan. Share your quit date with the important people in your life and ask for support. A daily phone call, email or text message can help you stay on course and provide moral support. Try Smoke-freeTEXT for 24/7 help on your mobile phone. Q Be prepared for challenges. The urge to smoke is short„usually only three to five minutes. Surprised? Those moments can feel intense. Even one puff can feed a craving and make it stronger. Before your quit day, write down healthy ways to cope. Drink water.Take a walk or ride your bike.Listen to a favorite song or play a game. Call or text a friend.Remove cigarettes and other tobacco from your home, car, and workplace. Q Throw away your cigarettes, matches, lighters and ashtrays. Clean and fresh-en your car, home and workplace. Old cigarette odors can cause cravings. Q Talk to your pharmacist, doctor or quitline coach about quit options. Nico-tine patches, gum or other approved quit medication can help with cravings. Smoking and colorectal cancer Quitting smoking can help you prevent many life-threatening illnesses, including colorectal cancer. Of cancers affecting both men and women, colorectal cancer (cancer of the colon and rectum) is the second lead-ing cancer killer in the United States, but it doesnt have to be. Screening can find precancerous polyps „ abnormal growths in the colon or rectum „ so they can be removed before turning into can-cer. Screening also helps find colorectal cancer at an early stage, when treatment often leads to a cure. If you are 50 years old or older, get screened now. If you think you may be at higher than average risk for colorectal cancer, talk to your doctor about getting screened early. Why do you want to quit? Perhaps you want to live a healthier life, live longer for your family members or save money that youd typically spend on cigarettes. Write down your reasons for quitting, no matter what motivates you to make this smart decision. Refer to the list whenever you have the urge to smoke. It will help remind you of all the reasons you want to quit. Remember, you can quit smoking and enjoy many healthy tri-umphs for years to come. Your first quit day may come as a pleasant surprise to you. Making the decision to quit helps you realize and appreciate your own determination. You have the strength it takes to quit smoking forever. For more information and help, see Q

The usual ways of mea-suring success „ such as how many leads or sales were generated „ dont really apply and that leaves them puzzled. Even people who are enthusiastic about social media arent always clear on what to expect,Ž says Jay York, senior social media strategist for EMSI Public Relations based in Wesley Chapel. One problem is that people mistakenly focus too much on likes,Ž figuring the more the better, he adds. So just what are the best ways to calculate whether youre setting and achieving realistic marketing goals on social media? Here are a few things Mr. York says you should expect from your efforts: Q Growth of followers … You definitely should see growth in your number of followers. This is a long-term game, how-ever, so dont get discouraged if it doesnt happen as quickly as you had imagined. Q Quality and quantity of reach … Think of a billboard, Mr. York says: You can pay to put your message on a billboard alongside a highway, but are the passing motorists in your target audience? Some are, no doubt, but many are not. With social media, you can find the people interested in what youre offering. You can also use social medias analytic tools to gauge how far and wide your message is reaching. Q Engagement … The level of engagement on social media varies greatly. Some people just read or look at what everyone else is posting, but dont post themselves. Others regularly post their own content, and they like and share what others post. Often theyve attracted an enormous fol-lowing. Those are the people you want to go after,Ž Mr. York says. Follow them and they might follow you in return. If they share one of your posts, then youre reaching their large audience.Ž Q Traffic to your website … Google analytics can tell you not only whether your website traffic has increased, but where that traffic came from. Q The immeasurable … Sometimes the impact of social media efforts cant be measured. For example, if one person sees something a business posted on Twitter and mentions it to a friend, that friend might check out the companys website. If asked how they heard about the busi-ness, that person will say it was through a friend „ even though it was social media that got the connection started.Theres a science to managing a social media campaign,Ž Mr. York says. If you want the best results, you cant take a willy-nilly, anything-goes approach. Youve got to carefully determine the most effec-tive ways of reaching your target audience, choose content thats most likely to engage them, and monitor whats working.Ž Q BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2016 A18 | WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM For the second time in a row, Jupiter Medical Center has received an AŽ grade from The Leapfrog Group, a national patient safety watchdog, rank-ing it among the safest hospitals in not only South Florida and the Treasure Coast but also in the United States. The Hospital Safety Scores, a service provided by the Leapfrog Group, assign A, B, C, D and F letter grades to hos-pitals nationwide, and offer the most complete picture of patient safety in the U.S. health care system. At Jupiter Medical Center, patient safety is our top priority,Ž said John Couris, the hospitals president and chief executive officer. Our recent accomplishments with regard to safety and quality demonstrate our commit-ment to bringing the best health care to the community. Jupiter Medical Center is the only hospital in Palm Beach, Mar-tin and St. Lucie counties to currently maintain both an A rating for patient safety and a four-star quality rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The pursuit of safety and clinical excellence is ingrained in the culture at Jupiter Medical Center. The hospital hired Dr. Ron Riner to serve as its chief quality officer. To determine their rating, The Leapfrog Group evaluates infection control, procedures to reduce complications in surgery, practices to prevent medical errors and the overall expertise of doc-tors, nurses and staff,Ž said Steve Seeley, Jupiter Medical Centers vice president, chief operating officer and chief nurs-ing officer. Jupiter Medical Center excels in each of these categories, and we are constantly searching for ways to improve upon our best practices.Ž The Hospital Safety Score provides data and research to help the public make informed decisions about a criti-cal aspect of their health „ the safety of their local hospitals. The goal of the Hospital Safety Score is to reduce deaths or injury from hospital errors and infections by shining a light on leaders in patient safety. Leapfrogs Hospital Safety Score uses publicly available hospital safety data to assign A, B, C, D and F grades to more than 2,500 U.S. hospitals twice per year. Hospitals are assessed on 30 different measures from prevention of common hospital-acquired infections like C.diff and MRSA to patient reports of their experiences during their hospital stay.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2016 BUSINESS A19 MONEY & INVESTINGAfter Trump win, stocks were up for biotech firms and down for gunmakersOne thing I love about the markets is, for better or worse, how instantaneous reactions are to news and events. So while news pundits continue to debate about what a Trump presidency will mean for the country politically, the market had just a few hours between the election result and the market open to decide how to react. And on that Wednesday, the collective market anointed definite winners and losers as a result of the Republican victory. The first big winner of the day was definitely biotech and pharmaceutical stocks. Both Clinton and Sanders were very critical of this sector during the campaign for driving up costs of certain drugs. Many feared that if Clinton won the election she would impose price caps on certain medicines, thus limiting this sectors profit opportunities. With Republicans now in control, analysts predict that there will be less scrutiny of drug prices. As a result, companies from Pfizer to Biogen were up 5 percent to 10 percent. The materials sector was also a big winner on Wednesday. One of the tenets of Trumps campaign was to boost American factory jobs by leveling the playing fieldŽ with foreign corporations. So companies like US Steel soared on expectations that the new president would enact policies to favor domestic steel companies over foreign competi-tion. Another key Trump campaign promise was to build up our military. That will cost money and defense contrac-tors will be happy to spend those funds on our behalf. Already popular because of their dividends, now there is some upside to their revenue and incomes as well. Energy companies also surged on Wednesday. Trump is known for sup-porting energy independence in Ameri-ca as well as energy jobs. Environmental regulations and global warming, not so much. These companies are hopeful that Trump will decrease regulations and open new lands for energy explora-tion. Similarly, banks also had a great day as they too anticipate fewer costly regulations. On the flip side, companies that rely on active trade with Mexico were hurt last week. Stocks like Cemex and even Constellation Brands (owner of Corona beer) saw their prices fall as Trump had campaigned to tear up the NAFTA trade agreement and build a wall on the bor-der of Mexico. Ironically, gunmakers also saw their stock prices drop. With a Clinton presidency, analysts predicted many people would be scared that she would impose more stringent gun laws so they would rush out to buy firearms before these new laws were put into place. With-out this fear, Trumps lack of new gun controls may have the effect of actually decreasing the number of guns being purchased in the near term. With Trumps embracing of traditional fossil fuels like coal, oil and natu-ral gas, it is no surprise that alter-native energy companies under per-formed the market last week. No one anticipates that President Trump will increase incentives for solar, wind or other renewable power sources. Finally, many investors believe that Trumps economic policies will expand the deficit. This is bearish for Treasury Bonds and, not surprisingly, they sold off on Wednesday as well. So while the market picked its winners and losers last week, it will be very interesting to see how many of these bets actually pay off down the road. As he proved during the campaign, Trump is unpredictable and does not follow conventional wisdom. It will be inter-esting to revisit this list a year from now to see just how right or wrong the market anticipated the economic results of President Trump. Q „ Eric Bretan, the co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda, was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. eric MOVING ON UPWhile vacationing in Italy last year, Renee Schaefer noticed Antica Sartoria shops in different cities and loved the clothes she found inside. We walked into a store in Capri and fell in love with everything about the collection and the beachy chic vibe the brand represents,Ž Ms. Schaefer said. She describes the clothes, designed by Giocomo Cinque, as fresh, inspir-ing and statement-making pieces that women and children feel gorgeous wearing.Ž The Jupiter woman wears the Italian clothing all the time now and feels cer-tain other women in the United States will want to wear the Positano-based brand, too, especially in Florida. With that in mind, Ms. Schaefer and her husband, Curtis Sigretto, opened an Antica Sartoria shop in Downtown at The Gardens in October. It is the fashion companys first store in the U.S., although the couple has plans to open more shops next year. Were looking at Key West, Naples, Boca and Miami,Ž she said. We have exclusive rights to sell the brand in the U.S.Ž The 1,200-square-foot Palm Beach Gardens store (previously home to Izod) boasts an array of the brands signature turquoise and one-of-a-kind garments. Breezy blouses, embellished denim, striking bathing suits, printed cover-ups, dresses and caftans, as well as unique necklaces and boho-inspired beach bags reflect the shops Positano Meets Palm BeachŽ vibe. Business has been great do far,Ž Ms. Schaefer said. A lot of people around here travel to Italy and recognize the brand.Ž Designer Giacomo Cinque only makes a limited number of each item for his 16 stores throughout Italy, and now the Palm Beaches. I try to keep a good price point,Ž Ms. Schaefer said. I want everybody to enjoy the clothing.Ž A majority of the items in the collection sell for less than $200. Accessories start at $15. The couple isnt new to the retail business, but this shop is a new direc-tion for them. They own two Halloween Express franchise locations. Mr. Sigretto, who founded Halloween Express in 1989 and served as president of more than 220 stores, also serves as a consultant for their Antica Sartoria store. Wayne Jenkins, the founder of Wellington-based Captive One Insur-ance, is the lead investor. Ms. Schaefer grew up in Pennsylvania, where her father had a flower shop. She worked for him during holi-days, but made her career in property management and development in New Jersey and Penn sylv ania before moving to Florida nine years ago. In January, Ms. Schaefer will return to Italy to choose a new line from Antica Sartoria for her Florida customers. I love the ocean,Ž Ms. Schaefer said. And she enjoys being able to wear casual chic clothing all year round. Renee SchaeferAge: 53 Where I grew up: Upper Dublin, Pa. Where I live now: Jupiter What brought me to Florida: A warmer climate. My job today: Owner of the new Antica Sartoria boutique at Downtown at the Gardens. I also serve as the oper-ations manager for Halloween Express and Elk Creek Vineyards in Kentucky. My first job and what it taught me: My family owned flower shops, so growing up I was always working and watching my parents. Seeing them work hard over the years gave me the work ethic I have today: Work hard, play hard. A career highlight: Seeing Antica Sartoria come to life. I first saw the Italian brand in Italy and immediately knew we had to bring it to the United States. The pieces are exquisite, unique and special, and really embody that Positano Meets Palm Beach vibe. Its a perfect reflection of who I am, who I have become. What I do when Im not working: Sport fishing and traveling. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: Follow your dreams and do NOT give up! About mentors: I am very self-driven, and consider myself my own men-tor.

Billed as Building the World of Tomorrow,Ž the fair ran through 1940 and drew 44 million people. One of the most popular exhibits included home designs of the future, a promise of a better time for a world bat-tered by the Great Depression and the start of World War II. One of the home designs and winner of the fairs first-place prize as the Home of the FutureŽ was the Fore and Aft House, designed by popular modernist architect Belford Shoumate. Mr. Shoumate was one of Palm Beachs most prolific architects in a career that spanned more than 50 years. His Fore and Aft model was built in 1940 on the Palm Beach Intracoastal Waterway near the ocean, now for sale at $7.995 million. He was instrumental in bringing Art Deco and modern home designs to Palm Beach instead of the more traditional Mediterranean-Revival styles that Addison Mizner had pioneered on the island in the 1920s. His 5,645-square-foot Fore and Aft House is designed to look like a boat hov-ering over the water „ its ocean liner and Art Deco style replicate many elements of the great ocean liners of the period. The home is longer than it is wide and designed with porthole windows and an upper deck with steamship railings to watch the sunsets over the water. Its five bedrooms have outside deck entrances much like the way one would access a ships cabin and the roofline gives the impression of a sail. Tropical touches include ceiling fans, coral-rock walkway and extensive Florida foliage and palm trees to provide shade.The home also has a unique Y-shaped two-car garage, pool, deep-water dock, fireplace, multiple built-ins and some orig-inal furnishings. It is the only lakefront house in Palm Beach with its own deeded oceanfront cabana and has 65 feet of Intra-coastal Waterway shoreline. Burt Minkoff of Corcoran Group Real Estate has the listing.

I started singing in the syna-gogue when I was seven years old. One thing led to another. I did musicals, then someone said why dont you make your own album?

Cost: $5 The skinny: The brightly glazed earthenware pottery called majolica has been used for popular decorative and utilitarian wares for more than 800 years. Its named for the Spanish city of Majorca, but virtually every country of Europe made some form of the pottery. In England, Wedgwood and Minton were renowned for their majolica. In France, any number of companies made the pottery. But I am in love with the shadings of this 8-inch plate, made by Choisy-le-Roi, a company in operation from 1850 to 1910. This piece draws inspiration from Japan, right down to the cherry blossoms that fade into the rim. Those Japanese influences became more common in Western design after markets opened there in the mid-19th century. Based on the mark of this plate, which bears the initials HBŽ „ for Hippolyte Boulenger, a director of the company „ it was made before the 1890s, and probably was part of a series. I love the carved effect the glaze has on the relief of the design, and it will be lovely as art, preferably on my kitchen wall. Q „ Scott Simmons THE FIND:My mom and I got our comeuppance years ago at an antiques show. We asked the price of something.The dealer replied, Well, if you have to ask, you probably cant afford it.Ž Well, then!Looking back, the dealer probably was right. Her price probably was more than we wanted to pay or „ closer to reality „ more than we could afford. But antiques tended to be more expensive back then, too, both by comparison to what wages were and by comparison to today. For example, I never would have found a 19th-century French majolica plate for $5 at a high-end auction gallery like the one I found recently. It easily would have been priced at 10 times that at a show 20 years ago. It probably still is worth a good amount more than the $5 I gave, but not the $75 or even $100 it might have been worth in the heyday of traditional antiques. Thats because values have shifted.Simply put: What was treasure 35 or 40 years ago no longer is treasure to the collectors of today. But that doesnt diminish the quality of the piece or the enjoyment I receive from looking at it. In fact, the lower prices on these treasures make them more accessible than ever to own and to use. Thats all the more timely as the holidays near and we debate whether its too much work to use the good dishes or silver. Why limit their use to the holidays?Fine china? Yeah, you cant put it in the microwave, but use it every day and enjoy it. Life is too short to eat off of plastic. Use a gentle cycle and liquid detergent in the dishwasher. Yes, the same can be said for silver-plated and sterling flatware. Get it out and use it. It will glow with everyday use „ no polishing necessary. Sterling silver can go in the dishwasher, though the knives fare better with hand-washing. I hear over and over again how someone has this set of china or that set of silver but never has used it. Get out the good crystal. Treat it gently, but raise a glass and toast the hope and happiness of being together with loved ones. Then do a quick hand-wash and put it away someplace where its easily accessible, because youll want to use it again and again. And, perhaps with the pa tina of time and use, it will become even more of a treasure than you previously thought.

YesYou know youve seen jaw-dropping action scenes in movies. What you dont know is how jaw-droppingly awesome the action is in Doctor Strange.Ž Please, dear reader, if you enjoy grand visual spec-tacles that push modern visual effects to new limits, do not miss this movie. Director Scott Derrickson (SinisterŽ) takes the sidewalk and road bending of InceptionŽ to the next level and then some. Characters fight on the sides of buildings and open portals to different dimen-sions. Skyscrapers split in half, floors change shape and size, and so much more. These arent just excit-ing action scenes; they are fantastic visual sequences that truly have to be seen to be believed. The story holds up well enough. Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cum-berbatch) is a brash, arrogant neuro-surgeon. His work is his life, which explains why he ignored a relation-ship with ER doctor Christine Palm-er (Rachel McAdams) for the sake of his career. As happens, life soon humbles him. A car accident leaves the doctor unable to use his hands, and there-fore unable to work as a surgeon. After numerous failed fixes, hope emerges as Strange learns of a paraple-gic (Benjamin Bratt) whos able to walk again. Soon Strange is off to Nepal to meet The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton), a sorcerer with mystical powers who, in her own words, reorients the spirit to better heal the body.Ž Stranges super-hero training henceforth begins. The villain is Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen), one of The Ancient Ones for-mer students, who wants to manipulate time and welcome a dark lord to Earth. Along with The Ancient One, her pro-tge Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and a spunky librarian named Wong (Benedict Wong), Strange tries to stop Kaecilius and his zealots from ruining the world. How does this fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Wong explains that the Avengers protect the world from physical threats while The Ancient One and her sorcerers protect it from mystical threats. Strange also wears the TimeŽ Infinity Stone, which is the fifth of six stones that will be revealed before the next AvengersŽ movie in May 2018.A word of warning to the easily queasy: Though the film looks great in IMAX 3D, note that (as always) depending on where you sit, even the slightest head tilt might result in a possibly headache-inducing blurry image. Truly, some sequences are visually overwhelming. Usually thats a good thing, but here, given the scale of the images, it can feel like a bit much. If you have a big meal beforehand, and/or are uncomfortable with intricate surgical procedures, go ahead and watch in regu-lar old 2D. You will still enjoy it, and save a few bucks in the process. Mr. Cumberbatch „ who almost didnt do the film because he was busy with HamletŽ on stage in London „ handles himself well amidst all the computer-generated images surrounding him, as does the rest of the cast. Theres also a decent amount of humor here, mostly from Stranges wise-guy remarks, that the otherwise gloomy movie certainly needs. Ultimately, though, its the bold and imaginative images that make you say Wow!Ž a nd will have you leaving the movie on a high. Q dan >> Stay for the credits. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) makes an appearance. FILM CAPSULESTrolls +++ (Voices of Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Zooey Deschanel) Trolls Poppy (Ms. Kendrick) and Branch (Mr. Timber-lake) try to save fellow trolls from being eaten by the bigger, badder Bergens. The animation isnt impressive, but the mash-ups of pop hits and the strong message of finding ones own happiness are enough to make this worth recommending. Rated PG.Jack Reacher: Never Go Back ++ (Tom Cruise, Cobie Smulders, Danika Yarosh) Ex-soldier Jack Reacher (Mr. Cruise) teams up with Major Susan Turner (Ms. Smulders) after theyre both framed for murder. A mediocre sequel to the 2012 hit, its predictable and strains to create interest. Even the action is boring. Rated PG-13.Inferno +++ (Tom Hanks, Felicity Jones, Omar Sy) Robert Langdon (Mr. Hanks) wakes in Florence, Italy, with no memory of how he got there, but soon is thrust into stopping a deadly virus that could wipe out half the worlds population. Director Ron Howards (A Beautiful MindŽ) pace is brisk and the story is a fun puzzle to piece together. Rated PG-13. The Accountant +++ (Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons) An autistic accountant (Mr. Affleck) is secretly a highly trained killer in this action drama from director Gavin OConnor (WarriorŽ). The role is perfect for Mr. Affleck, the story is gritty in a good way and the action is solid. Rated R. Q

Knopf. 640 pages. Hardcover, $27.95.Riff is the word Im looking for. But which defini-tion will succeed in making the con-nection to Naples resident Nathan Hills grandly ter-riff-ic first novel? Here are two from the online Oxford English Dictionary: (1) A short repeated phrase in popular music and jazz, typi-cally used as an introduction or refrain in a song; (2) A monologue or spoken improvisation, especially a humorous one, on a par-ticular subject. Many of the most astounding pas-sages in The NixŽ are in a kind of riff style, but the best are extended riffs that go on for many pages. They are boldly and darkly satir-ic. Laura Pottsdam, wayward student of Eng-lish Professor Samuel Ander-son, is revealed through riffs that express the self-indulgent thoughts that run through her mind and slither out of her mouth. She is at once airhead and supreme manipulator. She defeats Samuels attempt to bring her plagiarism to any kind of just resolution. She exhib-its a shrewd gamesmanship through which she threatens his career, a career already threatened by his inability to deliver a promised book manuscript to his publisher. Readers first meet these two characters, and many others, in scenes set in 2011. The major piece of Chicago news that summer is that a former radical female hippy, now middle-aged, has attacked Governor Packer. That woman is Samuels mother, Faye, from whom the professor has been estranged since she walked out of their suburban house-hold when he was a boy. Now she had found and lost herself in the violence of the 1968 Chicago riots. This inventive novel is mostly fashioned by filling in the blanks between occurrences that happened during and between those polar years. A large cast of characters is needed to do this imaginative work, and an astounding representation of cultural and physical environments anchors and validates the characters who moved through them. Samuel is something of an addict. He spends way too much time playing com-puter war games, in this case World of Elfscape,Ž inside of which he is Dodger the Elven Thief. Learning about the game and its allure is important to understanding the authors vision. For Samuel, the game keeps his mind off how far his star has fallen (and his mar-riage fallen apart) since being named a sure-bet young author at the age of 24. His addiction, however, is nowhere close to the complete absorption into the Elfscape fantasy of the gamer known as Pwnage. The riff that captures Pwn-ages failed attempt to free himself from his all-consuming immersion in this fantasy is one of the most amazing sty-listic feats in the book. At once hilarious and tragic, its a kind of shorthand for the theme of emptiness that dominates The Nix.Ž The loss of his mother gen-erates the emptiness in Samuel, who succumbs to writing a scandalous attack on her, the woman labeled the Packer Attacker, in place of the novel he cannot produce. Various degrees and manifestations of emptiness define characters like Faye (defined by departures rather than arrivals), her immigrant father, Fred, who is lost in memories of his Norwegian boyhood, and both Bishop and Bethany Fall, childhood friends whose lives are intertwined with Samuels in psychologi-cally disturbing ways (though Bethanys role later takes on redemptive power). Mr. Hill skillfully marinates his novel in recent American history: the 1968 election season with its Vietnam War shadow, the echoes of 9/11 that conjure American vulnerability and the slumbering economy that distinguishes the mood of the 2011 sequences. The earlier part of the frame is advanced by the fictional appearances of historical personages, notably Hubert Humphrey and Allen Ginsberg. I dont read many 600-page novels these days, and yet I might read this one a second time before the year is out. It is so rich in observational power, so mas-terful in tuning emotional experiences, so carefully balanced in interweaving its story elements, so richly and evocative-ly stylized. And it is so true to the expe-riences of those who have sojourned that territory of time, place, crisis and personal evolution. The 600-plus pages went by very quickly, without the temp-tation to skip any of them. Widely praised before its late-August publication, this imposing and highly entertaining first novel is certain to col-lect further accolades.

And I think what we all have in common is were trying to turn the dark-ness into light. Another favorite lyricist of mine is Yip Harburg, who wrote the words to Somewhere Over the Rainbow. I look for songs that teach me how to have fun, how to be silly, how to be serious, how to be thoughtful, how to talk to my kids, my fellow citizens and so on. Songs that help me get through the moment „ such as this last election.Ž Mr. Patinkin, a staunch Democrat, said that while he was disappointed with the election results, he has decided to let it energize rather than deflate him. This election and our defeat has empowered me and inspired me to raise my voice with greater courage when-ever possible,Ž he said. And to respect my fellow Americans „ many of them my neighbors and friends „ who voted differ-ently from me and wanted a different kind of attention paid. I think it was a wakeup call to all of us to see how polarized some of us are, but we are all Americans „ neighbors and brothers and sisters. And I just beg of all of us as individuals, as families, as communities, to listen to each other and hear each others differences and to move on with the great spirit of a country that leads „ not only ourselves, but the world at large.Ž Mr. Patinkins rsum boasts some of the most remarkable Broadway, film and TV shows in recent memory. The Emmy and Tony award-winning actor is probably best known for his Broadway roles as Che in EvitaŽ and Georges Seurat in Sunday in the Park with George,Ž while his tele-vision credits include Chicago Hope,Ž Criminal MindsŽ and Homeland.Ž And he had the immortal line from the film The Princess BrideŽ in which he says, Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.Ž I never dreamed that movie would become what it became,Ž he laughed. There has been generation after genera-tion of kids and parents and grandparents that come up to me, wanting to hear me say those words. I never would have dreamt that in my whole life Id be part of my generations The Wizard of Oz. And now again with Homeland, which critics and audience have responded to so well. Im so thankful for these extraordinary experiences and the gifted artists with whom I have worked.Ž The songs Mr. Patinkin will perform in his solo show at the Kravis Center became classics because they contain simple ideas that resonate with all of us. They contain ideas we all want and need to hear over and over again,Ž he said. Thats why I can sing them for thirty years and not get tired of them. And its never the same material. I never know what Im going to do. I have about 13 hours worth of material and I sometimes choose what Im going to sing, as I go along. I base it on what happens during the show, whats going on in the world or what pops into my head. I liken my show to a sushi restaurant I used to go to, where I would order a dish called Trust Me. The chef would always serve something differ-ent, but great.Ž For Mr. Patinkin, theres nothing like the frisson of a live show. I certainly love that,Ž he said. You cant replace being with an audience, live. Theres nothing that beats it. They inform me. We work together and they are part of the experience.Ž Mr. Patinkin related the experience of connecting with an audience to his title role in the Sondheim musical Sunday in the Park with George.Ž That show really formed and shaped a profound part of my life,Ž he said. The simple words that lyricist James Lapine repeated throughout the show, which are, Connect, George, connect. That word, connect, is a word I want on my tomb-stone: He tried to connect. Thats what I try to do in my work in front of a camera, behind a microphone, on stage.Ž Q PATINKINFrom page 1 Boutique Clearance Sale and Fabulous Vintage Finds Jewelry and Purses Friday, November 18th 9:30 a.m. … 1:30 p.m. and Sunday, November 20th 11:30 a.m. … 2:00 p.m. Royal Poinciana Chapel 60 Cocoanut Row, Palm Beach | 561-655-4212 ROYAL POINCIANA CHAPEL 28th Christmas Boutique COURTESY PHOTOMandy Patinkin says he loves the frisson of a live show.

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYAvenue shops „ now called The Espla-nade „ by Shamin Abas Public Relations. It was designed to bring a new audience into 150 Worth and reignite the interest of those who knew of it but didnt come to shop there often any-more,Ž Ms. Abas said. A new mix of tenants to showcase and a few new res-taurants in the area sparked the idea of food with fashion. Chefs who presented came from the plaza and immediate area, primarily from Palm Beach. Echo and the Palm Beach Grill were first-year participants. David began working on it when it was a year or two in. He did such a good job with it, when my focus was turning to New York and the things we were doing there, I told him he was welcome to take it over and continue to grow it. He had such passion for it, and a very clear vision on its potential.Ž Today, chefs and restaurants from around the state, along with Food Net-work stars, will be involved in either chef collaborative dinners, or at the grand tasting, where the original dine-around is recreated on a much larger scale. We started (in 2006) with 28 restaurants, I think, and for this year, 56 are already confirmed,Ž Mr. Sabin said in an interview weeks prior to the festival. It was a three-hour affair at the start, and now is 16 or 17 events over four days with at least 10 properties involved. The organizer has had his own whirlwind year planning the anniversary event „ along with his own wedding this sum-mer to chef Lindsay Autry, and helping her open The Regional restaurant in City-Place in September. Its been life in the fast lane this year, for sure. But its all good blessings.Ž Hes looking forward to new chefs and events at this years festival meant to attract different age groups. Special for me this year is the opportunity to grow the events. Seeing new faces, like the Okeechobee Steakhouse, and see-ing the old favorites „ Echo, Palm Beach Grill, returning. Were growing both south and north,Ž he said, referring to participat-ing chefs coming from Miami and down from Martin County. Dinners, lunches, and chef parties are planned again, with a couple of chef con-tests thrown in, including the Street Food Battle Royal. Eau Palm Beach will host a breakfast event; the Palm Beach Grill will open one day for a lunch; and a grill competition with top celeb chefs such as Marc Murphy, Ken Oringer, Adam Richman, Anita Lo and oth-ers will be at the Four Seasons Resort. Kids Kitchen a favoriteEvents that stand out for me are the Kids Kitchen,Ž Mr. Sabin said. Seeing the kids put on their chefs hats and shirts „ and learn. And they continue to come back every year: they bring pictures from last year and get them autographed.Ž The teaching chefs include Restaurant ImpossibleŽ star Robert Irvine, a crowd favorite, and Jeremy Ford, who brings his daughter to the class to join in. Its great to see the chefs cook with their own kids,Ž he said. And I think another one „ and Im biased „ but still, lunch at The Regional. Well be open for lunch by then. Lindsay has been such a big part of the event, helping with logistics and planning the culinary. This will be her first opportunity for hosting an event.Ž Newcomers of note bring a varied take on the foods featured at the collaboration dinners, he said, naming several. Brad Kilgore of Alter and Blackbrick in Miami „ hes named one of the top new chefs of 2016 by Food & Wine magazine, and hes nominated for a James Beard Award. Hes phenomenal. Lee Wolin of Boka in Chi-cago „ hes a Rising Star chef. Jonathon Sawyer he has several restaurants „ Tren-tina and the Greenhouse Tavern and some other restaurants in Cleveland „ hes a James Beard chef.Ž Closer to home are chefs from Palm Beach „ Clay Conley of Buccan, Imoto and Grato; Aaron Black of PB Catch; and Julien Gremaud of Avocado Grill; Miamis Richard Hales of Sakaya Kitchen and the upcoming Bird and Bone restaurant, and crowd favorite Michelle Bernstein. Mr. Sabin is expecting chefs to bring more diversity, and fresh foods to the table, especially at the grand tasting. Years ago, you might see some pork belly or steam buns, but not like the international foods today with specialized ingredients and fresh foods, especially.Ž Chefs are better at staging these events off-site, too, he said. They know what its like to prepare 750 bites for taking onsite.Ž Eric Grutka, a three-time winner at the Grand Chef Throwdown at the festi-val, returns to serve his foods from Ians Tropical Grill. Mr. Grutka says he wont be competing in the contest held at The Gardens Mall. They threw me out,Ž he said. I won three times in a row. I guess they wanted to change things out. But well be there Sunday for the grand tasting.Ž Over the years, hes seen the trends at the festival. I remember that year when every chef made beef shortribs. Usually theres a lot more variety. One year, there was a lot of ceviches. Maybe we get hooked on a trend,Ž he said.More fresh; less foamBruce Feingold, chef at Dada in Delray Beach, remembers the shortribs, too. Later, it was foams and bubbles. I think were getting rid of the gastronomy. Sooner or later its overkill. Last year at the mall, I did the brulee water-melon: Sea salt with caramelized sugar, with smoked sheep feta and arugula with pesto. Its a pretty good dish „ Im serving it on the brunch menu. This year, I may do a shrimp dish,Ž he said, musing about a take on a bagel using the shrimp as loxŽ and a schmear of mas-carpone for the cream cheese. Mr. Grutka is going with chicken, with a big twist. This year, Im bringing cracklins. Its an osso buco like bite: a Frenched bone-on chicken thigh. I double-fry it, using egg white and rice flour, then have a soy sauce that we roll it in. We call them crack: cracklins „ because theyre like crack candy they order them over and over.Ž Every year gets better for both chefs and the festivalgoers, though at times, there are growing pains, as Mr. Grutka noted. The chefs and guests approved when judges from the Food Network were brought in for the chef competition, lend-ing it an entertainment flair and drawing Food Network fans. Last year, it was a different environment (at the mall),Ž he said. They out-grew the space on Worth Avenue and I understand the reason for the move. They can accommodate a lot more chefs and people. It was a little bit different for the chef competition. Harder to watch „ at the Worth Avenue place, the chefs were down below in a pit area and you could watch from above. I hope they set up a stage this year „ it was hard to see it.Ž A new format for the Grand Chef competition includes the winner of the Chef vs. Chef contest held by Maxs Harvest in Delray. Chef Clay Carnes won, and will represent the challenger against two chefs who win a social media contest. Winner will have $10,000 donated in their name to the charity they choose. Mr. Sabin explained its a way to work technology-friendly guests into the pro-cess of choosing who competes.Keeping fest smallThe organizer agrees its tough to make changes. We try to improve on it every year, but theres a learning curve with everything.Ž Hes growing the fest sl owly, not really wanting to get so big its no lon-ger the event people remember. He doesnt give hard numbers, but says the fest breaks even, pretty much. It was in the deep red for years, so this is actually good. Its not really a money-making prop-osition. We cant charge what its worth for say, the Kids Kitchen event.Ž Prices range from $75 to $170; many events are already sellouts. As for it growing as big as South Beach Food and Wine Festival, it wont happen, he said, though he admires Lee Schrager, the organizer, as a mentor for success. I dont think Palm Beach lends itself to the SoBe experience.Ž Q FESTFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOSChef Daniel Boulud hosted “Daniel & Friends” at Caf Boulud last year.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 17-23, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19The Dish: Pesto-crusted chicken breast salad The Place: Avocado Grill, 125 Datura St., downtown West Palm Beach; 623-0822 or The Price: $14 The Details: I always contend that when it comes to food, simpler can be better. After all, who needs the fuss of tons of ingredients when two or three well chosen ones will do? Thats what I love about the pestocrusted chicken salad at Avocado Grill. The basil of the pesto plays off the balsamic vinegar dressing, which adds a grace note of sorts to the spinach. As always, chef/owner Julien Grimaud nicely balances flavors and portions. The chicken breast was tender and had absorbed a bit of the pesto during grilling, and the chicken paillard salad, with its marriage of arugula, artichokes and heirloom tomatoes, also was satisfy-ing. Q „ Sc ott Simmons J ames Strine, executive chef at Grato, is known by his peers as a visionary chef with an in-depth knowledge of the marketplace. The Maryland native has come a long way since he worked as a dishwasher when he was 17. By the end of the first night on the job „ and devouring one of his first chef-made meals „ he had found a career. It was so good,Ž Chef Strine remembered. I loved it and I still remember how good it tasted „ sauerbraten with potato dumplings and braised red cab-bage.Ž After telling the chef how much he enjoyed the meal, the chef asked him if he wanted to learn how to cook. Chef Strine said yes and he launched his culinary career in that very restaurant. In 1996, after working at the Maryland restaurant for two years, Chef Strine moved to Florida, where he advanced through The Breakers Resort Palm Beachs restaurants, learn-ing about diverse culinary styles along the way. After his stint at The Breakers, he returned to Maryland to become the chef/operator of his award-winning, family-run restaurant, Micks New American Bistro. From there, Chef Strine returned to Florida and spent nine years at Caf Boulud in Palm Beach, most recent-ly as executive sous chef. At Boulud, he honed classic French technique, and excelled in creating beautiful, bold dishes with a focus on seasonality. When Clay Conley, chef/owner of the Italian restaurant Grato and a long-time friend, talked to Chef Strine about an opening at Grato, earlier this year, Chef Strine took the job. He became executive chef at Grato in mid-August. We work well together,Ž Chef Strine said of Chef Conley, I love playing around with different pastas and grains,Ž he said. I havent picked out a favorite dish (at Grato) yet,Ž he said. We change the menu often. I recommend custom-ers keep coming back so they can try everything. Whatever mood youre in, we can accommodate it. If you are in the mood for (brick iron) pizza, ours is the best around. If you want handmade pasta, youve got to try ours.Ž Chef Strine and his wife, Brandy, and daughter, Lilly, 8, live in West Palm Beach. Mrs. Strine is no slouch in the kitchen either, he said. In fact, if he had to pick his last supper it would be sloppy Joes, mac n cheese and his wifes carrot cake, which he says is the best around.Ž He doesnt worry about packing on the pounds. I dont overdo with food and Im on my feet all day,Ž he said. In his spare time, Chef Strine supports several local charities including the Share Our Strengths No Kid Hun-gry campaign and Jeremiah Bullfrogs annual P.I.G. (Pork is Good) and Duck, Duck, Goose events. He has competed in and judged Cochon 555, competed in the Palm Beach Food & Wine Fes-tivals 2015 Grand Chef Throwdown and won Maxs Harvest 2015 Chef vs. Chef series competition. James StrineAge: 40 Original hometown: Woodsboro, Md. Restaurant: Grato, 1901 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; 404-1334; Mission: To maintain a casual, approachable, neighborhood restau-rant with offerings you dont find in any in any other Italian restaurant. Cuisine: Modern Italian Footwear of choice: Balu from Bragard. The blue ones. I bought the last three pair in the world. Training: American Culinary Federation apprenticeship and chef Zach Bell. Advice: Before diving head first, make sure this is what you want to do. Be a stagier at a reputable restaurant for a while and dont commit to school right off the bat. This is a life choice, not just a job.

W eight gain is a frequent complaint from patients and is an ongoing lifetime struggle. Obesity is a rising epidemic in our country. In the United States, it is estimat-ed that 93 million Americans are affected by obesity and almost 112,000 annual deaths are attributable to obesity. Indi-viduals affected by obesity are at a higher risk for impaired mobility and experience a negative social stigma commonly asso-ciated with obesity. Being affected by excess weight, obesity or morbid obesity significantly increases the risk of developing many other diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, stroke, osteoarthritis and much more. Unlike diabetes and hyper-tension, obesity can-not hide from those around you. Weight management is a partner-ship between the patient, their family and the healthcare team. This partnership is one that is developed on an individual basis with each patient. Management of obesity includes diet, exercise, behavior modi-fication and nutritional counseling. In most cases, medications for weight-loss (pharmacotherapy), supervised very-low calorie diets, structured meal plans and injectable vitamins like B12 are pre-scribed. Most people have little or no side effects. Getting a handle on eating behaviors is key to making a significant long-term change. While no one likes to keep food logs that require writing down all food eaten, this exercise has been shown to be important for long-term success. With all the variation in serving sizes, most individuals do not have a good under-standing of how many calories are actu-ally consumed in one day. Therefore, it is recommended that individuals keep a complete food log. This will also help the providers to get a better handle on areas of the diet to focus on at follow-up visits. The current weight-loss model as patients and providers know it, needs to be reversed. With pharmacotherapy as the core and foundation, then diet, exer-cise and behavioral modification as essen-tial adjuncts. Once a desirable weight is achieved, a maintenance program needs to be continued using pharmacotherapy, diet, exercise and behavior modification. The medications suppress appetite, con-trol cravings, improve insulin sensitivity and lower the metabolic set point. One particular method of weight loss using medications is with the use of prescription hCG. This also can be com-bined with lipotropic (fat burning) and B12 injections. Patients can lose up to 20 pounds in 20 days or 40 pounds in 40 days. Many studies have shown that accountability is one of the major factors influencing the ability of individuals to maintain long-term weight loss. Obesity is not a disease thats conquered in a day, month or year. It is a disease that must be fought every day for the rest of ones life. Weekly weigh-ins are a useful tool to hold individuals accountable. Just knowing there will be a weekly weigh-in decreases caloric consumption. Other options for weight loss under the supervision of a health care pro-vider is The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method. It is a medically designed pro-tocol containing two key components „ weight loss and a healthier lifestyle education to assist you in maintaining your results after dieting. The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method is learning to live off of the bodys own fat reserves. First the body depletes its simple and complex carbohydrate reserves and then turns simultaneously to its protein and fat reserves for energy. Do you think you have a slow metabolism? Do you have trouble losing weight no matter what you do? Do you feel like your weight is getting in the way of your relationship, job and quality of life? Medically supervised weight loss is easier, faster and safer than standard diets because you are under the care of a physician throughout the course of your treatment. At Youthful Balance Medical Center, we can use medications and diet tools not available in commercial or self-directed diets. Call Youthful Balance Medical Center today and let us come up with a weight-loss plan together! Q Jennifer Nicholson Nurse Practitioner Youthful Balance 10887 N.

4 healthy living NOVEMBER 2016 ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY Avoiding Thanksgiving weight gain PALM BEACH GARDENS MEDICAL CENTER D o you ever wish that every day could be Thanksgiving? All the delicious turkey, creamy mashed potatoes, tasty green bean casserole, and mouth-watering pecan pie. While your mouth may be saying, Yes,Ž your waistline is calling out, Whoa!Ž „ and for good reason. Thanksgiving can be a real challenge if you are watching your weight, but you dont have to sabotage your diet. Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is here with some tips to help you navigate the buffet table without depriv-ing yourself. Eat before you eat. This may sound counterproductive, but if you eat a whole-some breakfast and lunch you can avoid overeating at Thanksgiving dinner later. That way youll have more control over your appetite because we tend to eat too much when hungry. Go light on the calories. Many Thanksgiving goodies are loaded with extra fat and sugar, including mashed potatoes with all the b utter and sweet potatoes covered in marshmallows. Recipes can be healthier by making a few substitutions, such as fat-free chicken broth to make gravy or plain yogurt in casseroles. One size doesnt fit all. Just because certain dishes are offered doesnt mean you have to sample every one. Avoid the all-you-can-eat mentality and limit yourself to smaller portions if you cannot control the ingredients used in a dish. Dont cover your whole plate. Theres no need to pile your plate high with every food that is offered. Look over the buffet table first and then make your selections. Opt for reasonably-sized portions of holiday favorites that are served only once a year. Save room for dessert by skipping seconds. Eat s-l-o-w-l-y. By savoring and chewing every bite thoroughly and putting your eating utensil down between bites you can enjoy your meal and be satisfied with one plate of food. Leftovers are often better the next day anyway. Pace yourself and eat only until you feel full. Drink plenty of water and try to keep alcohol down to a minimum since calories from alcoholic drinks can add up quickly. Put down your fork and go for some fresh air. Spread out the food and fun by going for a walk after your main meal and then having dessert later. Its a great way to get in some exercise and spend quality time with your family. If you are eating out for your Thanksgiving meal, ask for food that is steamed, grilled or broiled rather than fried or sauted. Request that sauces and dressing be served on the side, and watch out for super-sized portions that tempt you to eat too much. By making small adjustments to your holiday meal, you can enjoy Thanksgiv-ing without the guilt. Learning how to prepare healthy meals can significantly improve your health year-round.

Our thoracic surgery program uses the latest advances such as elec-tromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy and stereotactic body radiation, as well as robotic-assisted thoracic surgery (RATS) and video-assisted thorascopic surgery (VATS). Traditionally, a thoracotomy surgery was used to biopsy or remove tissue from the lungs. This open chest procedure has a higher risk of infection and complica-tions, as well as a longer recovery time for patients. Through the minimally invasive RATS approach, risk is reduced and blood loss is decreased. RATS requires only small incisions in the chest, rather than one large incision. By looking at a magnified 3D image of the patients lungs and chest, we use the robotic technology to translate hand movements into precise actions. Patients experience less pain, scarring and since the RATS procedure causes less trauma to the body, recovery time also is reduced. Another refinement of standard lung cancer surgery with similar patient ben-efits, VATS allows surgeons to operate through two to four openings between the ribs while viewing the patients internal organs on a video monitor. Each opening is less than two inches in diam-eter, rather than the 6to 10-inch incisions common in open thoracic surgery. The Frank E. & Mary D. Walsh Robotic Surgery Program at Jupiter Medical Center is one of the most comprehen-sive programs in the area and offers the leading technology of the da Vinci Xi’ and Si’ Surgical Systems. The recent introduction of the Xi’ system established Jupiter Medical Cen-ter as one of the first facilities in the world to possess this technology. And more than a decade ago, my thoracic team set the standard of innovations in lung cancer surgery by pioneering the first four-arm robotic thoracic surgery for lung cancer in the nation. If your physician recommends surgery to treat lung cancer or another thoracic condition, you may be a can-didate for minimally invasive da Vinci surgery. The da Vinci Xi’ and Si’ Surgical Systems are sophisticated robotic platforms designed to enable complex surgery using a minimally invasive approach. I have performed more than 1,300 of these minimally invasive robotic sur-geries. We have helped patients realize tremendous benefits including fewer complications, less blood loss, lower risk of infection, shorter hospital stay, less pain, and faster return to normal quality of life. Our investment in the most technologically advanced surgical equipment available, the da Vinci Xi’ and Si’ Surgical Systems, and our years of expe-rience and expertise speaks to our com-mitment to transform patient care and our desire to build a hopeful future for cancer care in South Florida.

Here are some helpful guidelines to ensure the holiday season is fun and festive for the entire family including senior parents, grandparents and older loved ones! Food and drink „ Moderation is best! If older family members can man-age their dietary restrictions and alcohol intake, as well as their medi-cations, everyone will manage to have a good time! Alcohol can be hazardous for seniors, bring on depression and con-fusion, cause inter-actions with pre-scriptions, trigger falls and irregular heartbeat. Dont let seniors overindulge, and know the warning signs of a heart attack and stroke. Remind diabetics to check their blood sugar more often if changing their routine over the holidays, and provide healthyŽ snacks in addition to holiday favorites. Activities „ Schedule the important activities earlier in the day to avoid fatigue, and stick to a routine for both meals and medications as much as possible. Non-stop holiday shopping and celebrating can exhaust the elderly and disorient seniors, especially if they are cognitively or physically impaired. Do not try to force anyone into an activity beyond his or her capacity. Even well orchestrated holiday plans can be ruined by an emotional or medical emergency, so be prepared and leave extra time to handle contingencies. Health and medical issues „ Senior family members traveling to spend the holidays with you should make you aware ahead of time about any health issues or illnesses they may have, or recent medi-cal procedures. Be sure to remind them to pack their prescriptions and medical supplies, and bring a contact list of their doctors along just in case something hap-pens during their holiday visit. Safety „ Physical limitations, including poor eyesight and hearing, can lead to impaired mobility, which creates safety issues. Be sure to remove poten-tial trip and fall hazards, and dangerous decorations in advance of the festivities. Remember those with Parkinsons strug-gle with balance and those with dementia or Alzheimers are in danger of wander-ing.Ž Older adults move at a slower pace „ be patient and do not rush them. Manage meltdowns „ Take depression seriously in seniors, especially around the holidays, when they are feeling emotional and facing physical challenges or the loss of a loved one. Avoid sensitive subjects like selling the house.Ž Dont demand decisions about doctors, or argue with siblings about whats best for Mom, Dad or Grandpa and Grandma. Holiday commotion and conflict can cause seniors stress and agitation, especially later in the day. Should a family member become agitated, escort them to a quiet room for a break from all the chaos. Then take a break yourself, the holidays are stressful for caregivers, too! Give the gift of time „ It is important to pace yourself and help your parents and grandparents to do so as well. The best gift you can give an older loved one is the gift of your time „ be a good lis-tener, share memories and photographs, watch movies together, bake something, sing songs, read the paper or do puzzles together. Thanksgiving is next week and kicks off the holiday season, so be sure ALL your loved ones are focusing on their health and wellness now so they can enjoy themselves during the festivities ahead.
