Call 844-447-4687 or visit COMMENTARYThe unarmed truthSeveral weeks ago, the Smithsonians newest museum opened in Washington, D.C. It sits on a five-acre plot on the National Mall, just a short stroll from the Washington Monument. It took a cen-tury to incubate the National Museum of African American History and Culture before it became a reality. Its powerful presence in the nations capital speaks volumes about the long road the nation traveled to finally build it there. Its supporters raised $540 million in private and public dollars to get the job done. Its galleries spread over five floors and host current displays featuring 3.500 objects from its permanent collection of 40,000 artifacts. They include Har-riet Tubmans hymnal and Nat Turners Bible, treasures contributed by ordinary people who understood the significance of the museum and the historical value of the objects they possessed. Families passed them down from one generation to the next, protecting and preserving history too important to be forgotten. When the opportunity came, Americans gifted them to the nation. The controversy that slowed the museums momentum is rooted in its mission; it is a museum that seeks to understand American history through the lens of the African-American expe-rience.Ž Such an extraordinary endeav-or challenged a narrative about race in America, a narrative set in stone by 200 years of the nation trying to avoid the topic altogether. Never early adopters on issues of minority civil rights, it was no surprise many white folks would oppose the museum. They argued such an enter-prise would die for lack of interest. Yes, African-Americans had a unique story to tell, but that did not, in the majority view, argue for spending tax dollars to tell it. Objections had to be overcome: A museum offering such a narrow perspec-tive would fail to attract a major audi-ence (meaning only black people would come); its singular focus on the African-American experience would add little to the nations understanding of its past (only black people will care); and what about all those hot button, r acial issues inherent to black history? Hadnt the topic of slavery been discussed ad nause-am (only black people cant forget)? And if African-Americans get their museum, other disaffected minorities will demand a museum, too. If those who objected to the museum were a tad defensive, it was because America already had a standardized ver-sion of the nations past „ as told by white people. Admittedly, its authors changed, omitted, and/or soft-pedaled some of the harsher details. They had lit-tle enthusiasm for a museum that would challenge the nation to reflect on the violent assimilation of its former slaves. Theyd rather make short work of this distasteful past, i.e., We were wrong. It wasnt pretty. We overcame. Lets move on. If built, the museum would undoubtedly rewrite history. This troublesome thought presented a cul-de-sac of wor-ries for the unconvinced; because he/she who wields the pen gives authority and status to the version of history taught. For example, teachers are using textbooks that attribute the principle cause of the Civil War to states rights. (If you think this is true, you have already made my point.) We shave the stubble off the face of history to make it more publicly presentable „ at least to some. To be fair, as the push to build the museum became more insistent, some white folks changed their hearts and minds, and thankfully so. They deserve our praise. To overcome racial bias, they had, in effect, to overcome themselves. This is because white superiority and privilege are ingrained in the major-ity culture. Its beneficiaries need never state the obvious: If you are white you are presumed superior to anyone whose color doesnt make the cut. You show up and go automatically to the front of whatever line you are in. It is affirmative action by default. Who wants to give that up „ even if its a perk you never asked for or heartily disa vow? Amanda Taub of The New York Times explains in a recent article: Whiteness means being a part of the group whose appearance, traditions, religion, and even food are the default norm. It is being a person who, by unspoken rules, was long entitled as part of the us instead of the them.Ž She writes the crisis in white identity is about the slice of the white electorate losing its place in line. The new museums existence on the Washington Mall says something pro-foundly wonderful about the nation that built it, the leaders and donors who sup-ported it, and the people whose stories it tells. And it comes at a time when the nation sorely needs the historical wit-ness and testimony of Americans who refused then „ and now „ to accede America to forces of hate and division. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, ƒ unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.Ž The National Museum of African-American History and Culture is a decisive voice on behalf of winning the debate about racial equal-ity, just as King imagined it would be.

Ive been in the Oval Office, part of the West Wing in the White House, so I know what Im talk-ing about. Tall ceiling-to-floor windows treated with lush sour-cherry draperies just behind his desk face a fireplace laid into the far wall about 35 feet distant. Couches and a love seat flanking a coffee table stand in the middle of the room. Placed against the wall on one side are Chippendale chairs beneath a built-in bookcase. A grandfather clock stands as times solitary sentry against the opposite wall. Portraits of Lincoln and Washington, with some gentle American landscapes probably from New England or the near-South of the 18th or 19th centuries hang in perfect alignment on soft gold-and-cream-striped wall paper, which reflects the tone in the soft oval carpet „ a pale, buttery gold bearing a magnificent seal of the presi-dent, an eagle clutching an olive branch in one talon and arrows in the other. All that will have to go „ starting with the seal, to be replaced by a tapestry por-trait of Mr. Trump. The portraits of past presidents will have to come down, the bookcase will have to be covered, and the grandfather clock with Chippendale chairs and couches will have to be put in storage. The desk should be removed too, Im afraid, even though Queen Victoria had it built from the ships timbers of the H.M.S. Reso-lute, which had been trapped in Arctic ice before an American whaling captain from Connecticut and his crew salvaged the ship and returned it to the crown. The queen gave the desk to us, where most recently it served JFK, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama as they created and maintained the most powerful and progressive large nation in the history of the world. But thats old news.For the next four years, the walls of the oval office should be lined in mirrors so the president can better see himself perform. The carpet and walls should be a uni-form urine-orange and the couches should be replaced with couch-sized limousine benches or stuffed-animal chairs, lions and the like. If any walls remain uncovered by mirrors, I strongly suggest Mr. Trump use them to mount heads: Perhaps the head of a political opponent or a Syrian refugee or a Mexican rapist, for example, or even a large pussy. Cat. Outside the Oval Office, of course, the president-elect should move swiftly and decisively to alter the design of the govern-ment, starting with its premier symbol, the American flag. He absolutely must present a bigger flag than the one he hoisted 80 feet over his home in Palm Beach, Mar-a-Lago, where the town ordinance limited poles to no higher than 42 feet and a flag of no greater measure than 4-feet by 6-feet. Mr. Trumps flag was 15-by-25 feet, which means not only that the town council sued him, but that astronauts trying to guide the space station overhead when their navigation systems went awry could just take a reading with a Boy Scout compass on the flag above Mar-a-Lago, and go from there. In addition, since Mar-a-Lago is almost exactly twice the size of the White House „ 110,000 square feet, compared to a paltry 54,900 square feet in the District of Colum-bia „ to save face the new president will need to build a 60,000-square-foot addition to the little place on Penn sylv ania Avenue. A boutique Trump Tower or Casino Hotel on the White House lawn, perhaps? A huge nanny room for the kids? Once he has the Oval Office, the flag situation and the White House addition under control, Mr. Trump will likely do away with the cabinetŽ as its traditionally conceived „ the vice president and 15 heads of executive departments, all of them called secre-taryŽ except the attorney general. CabinetŽ sounds like something above the stove in the kitchen. Thats not great-again. And Secretary?Ž Please. From now on, he should call each cabinet member Winner,Ž not Secretary.Ž The Winner of Defense. The Winner of State. The Winner of Commerce. Like that. As of press time Mr. Trump had not named any Winners yet, but before long Im expecting to see the new Winners of Agri-culture, Commerce, Defense, Education, Energy, Health and Human Services, Home-land Security, Housing and Urban Develop-ment, Interior, Labor, State (Hillarys old cabinet position), Transportation, Treasury and Veterans Affairs. He should leave the Attorney GeneralŽ title well enough alone and require the new one, conservative Ala-bama Sen. Jeff Sessions, to wear a tri-cor-nered hat and embroidered shoulder pads with 10 or 12 gold stars on each. Mr. Sessions will be delighted to, Im sure. But Mr. Trump should add to the cabinet, which will likely now be called the Board, or the Bored, depending on how many have ADHD like Mr. Trump. He will need a Winner of Tweet, a Winner of Big Hair, a Winner of Trumpettes „ all major departments in which great statesmanship will be required to avoid international scandal and embarrassment. And what will he do with old friends and supporters like Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, who dont really want to be senators anyway? Or for that matter Gov. Rick Scott? Hell have to make them Winners, too.For Sen. Cruz, I suggest Winner of Cuban Cigars and International Phalli. Sen. Rubio should be named, without question, Winner of Torture, since he seemed to think it was necessary at Guan-tanamo. As for Gov. Scott? Mr. Trump would do well to name him Winner of Pipelines, Effective pharmaceutical profit and Essen-tial deregulation, or PEE. The American Board of Great-Again. Q roger It’s up to us to find the center after electionWhat an extraordinary election.Well need time to discern all its meanings, such as what Donald Trumps sur-prising victory says about public atti-tudes toward President Obama, whose poll numbers remain fairly high. But already, some things are clear „ including two firsts which have great implications. One is that for the first time, our president will lack any prior government or mili-tary experience. Might that encourage more presidential candidacies by newcomers?Second, this was the first time that communication in cyberspace promi-nently affected a presidential campaign. Just as the 1960 election revealed TVs political importance, 2016 demonstrated the internets rising influence „ in Hill-ary Clintons misguided use of a private server, Trumps inflammatory tweets and the release of Democratic emails hacked by Russia. This influence surely will grow. Also significant is the huge impact of early voting, now in 37 states and Wash-ington, D.C. We no longer have just an election day, but an election period. This replaces a fixed political climate during brief voting hours with a shifting climate during weeks of balloting „ a fluidity seen with FBI Director James Comeys letters. That will increasingly alter campaigns. As to the parties, whats next for the GOP? After their internal conflict, will Republicans heal or aggravate the split? The answer could depend on whether Trump tries to implement his most controversial policies. Many Republican leaders have opposed those plans. If Trump pushes his most extreme ideas without changes, the partys split could widen. But Trump calls himself a deal maker and has intimated he would make deals on his proposals. Already, his initial immigra-tion and Muslim pronouncements have been modified. To get things done, he will have to deal with skeptical Repub-licans in Congress and Democrats who have a potentially powerful Senate minor-ity. Infrastructure improvement would be a good start for a relatively easy agreement. Well have to wait to see whether the GOP follows the partys traditional course or the course demanded by its insurgents. In deciding that, Republicans must ask whether this election primarily reflects support for Trump, dislike of Clinton or a general dissatisfaction with government and the countrys direction. For Democrats, what might happen now? Taking the long view, they might be comforted by historys lesson that while parties are not indestructible, they are resilient. We saw this after Republi-cans were trounced in 1964 and Democrats collapsed in 1972. The 2016 result was not a disaster like those debacles. But Democrats need to improve their appeal to working class white voters. They also failed to fully mobilize the Obama coalition. Finally, whats ahead for undocumented immigrants, Muslims, LGBT people and others who could suffer? We cant yet know, but contention is looming. Those groups have seen progress and will see more, but setbacks are possible. Can we come together? Zealots on both sides plainly will not. Like many others, I strongly disagree with Trump on many issues. But we cant afford another four years of total gridlock that prevents solu-tions to urgent problems. Despite our polarization, there remains a political center that is vital for democ-racy. Strengthening that reasonable center, which can encompass liberals and conser-vatives, is our best hope. And the need to do that might be the most profound mean-ing of this election.

(Located on the first floor by Cobb Theatres) @anticasartoriapb PET TALESPets in paintings A portrait of a beloved pet can bring you happiness every day BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickHave you ever admired the portraits of dogs and cats that you see in museums? Immortalizing a pet on canvas isnt just a thing of the past or something for the wealthy. You can commission one yourself to commemorate a special event, such as a dog earning a championship or a sport title, or simply to capture the likeness of a cher-ished companion. A pet portrait can also be a special gift to a family member or friend. I have many pictures of my animals,Ž says Jenn Prendergast of Tracy, California. Several friends over the years have given them. I feel honored that they made them, and it honors the memory of my beloved pets.Ž Finding a pet portrait artist is as easy as asking around at local pet boutiques, get-ting referrals from friends or looking up artists on the AKCs Museum of the Dog registry. Before you choose someone, look at many different styles of dog portraits. Decide if you like a whimsical look or something more formal. Consider the pros and cons of different media as well. Acrylics and oils look differ-ent than watercolors. Pencil art looks different from paintings.Oils and acrylics on canvas or board dont need to be under glass, but pastels, watercolor and pencil art can be damaged by water, so they need protection.Interview the artists before you hire one. Questions to ask include the size and price, whether it will be matted and framed or unframed, how long it will take, whether you can see a sketch beforehand, what medium the artist will use (some work in more than one), and if the artist guarantees satisfaction. I always say I will do it over if they dont like it,Ž says Terry Albert of Poway, California, an award-winning artist whose work has been exhibited at the Museum of the Dog. Once I had to make a tabby cat browner instead of gray, and once a black Lab just didnt come out the way they envi-sioned it. The second version in both cases was a hit.Ž Costs can range from as little as $50 to five figures. Price depends on the medium (oil, pastel, watercolor, charcoal or pencil), the demand and the artists reputation. Oils are usually most expensive, often starting at $1,000 and rising from there. Price can also vary by such factors as the number of animals in the painting, the size of the canvas and the complexity of the background. Expect to pay a deposit, with the balance due upon completion. Cavalier owner Cathy Remoll Torres has an oil painting by artist Dominique Oboyski of her beloved dog Jake, who died three months ago. Dominique asked permission to paint him years ago when she was working on painting cavaliers,Ž Torres says. Years later, she was clearing inventory and offered to sell it to me at a cost I could afford „ it was too expensive for me when she originally painted it. I jumped on the chance, and the painting now hangs in my bedroom.Ž If you find an artist who works in your area, he or she may meet your dog in per-son to get an idea of his looks and person-ality. Otherwise, plan on providing several photographs in different poses. A written description of your dog can help as well. Is he serious or funny? Does he have any quirks? How does he look at you when he wants something? All of these details can help the artist produce the perfect painting. A portrait of a pet is an everlasting tribute to a friend. When an artist captures an animals essence, the pleasure a painting brings is immeasurable. I have always thought my dogs and cats were true, moving works of art,Ž says Janet Velenovsky. Having a talented person make that a reality is the logical next step.Ž Q A good artist can capture a pet’s uniquepersonality.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 24-30, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY“From the perspective of, I think, a lot of privacy advocates, facial recognition is a case of the technology leaping ahead of the law.” — Adam Schwartz, senior lawyer with Electronic Frontier Foundation, a San Francisco-based nonprofit that researches technology and civil liberties issuesIn Florida, officers run searches through the Face Analysis Comparison & Examination System (FACES), hosted by the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office in the St. Petersburg area. One of the oldest „ if not the oldest „ and larg-est law enforcement face recognition databases in the country, FACES began in 2001. Now it grants 243 agencies statewide free access to use their sys-tem online including officers in Lee, Charlotte, Collier, Hendry, Glades, Palm Beach, Monroe, Miami-Dade „ most places in Florida. Its very heavily used and its not audited. That would be the biggest con-cern,Ž said Clare Garvie, the George-town reports lead author. Most searches are made in good faith by officers who use it to better do their jobs, the schools researchers say, but a lack of transpar-ency and account-ability puts the sys-tem at a higher risk of abuse and dubi-ous searches, such as secretly tracking political protestors, using FACES for personal reasons or making a wrongful arrest. Although the Pinellas Sheriffs Office has been forthcoming about how FACES is used, and say those abuses havent occurred, other agencies have not been. Many did not respond to repeated requests or declined to comment for this story. Pinellas officials confirmed their system is not audited either internally or independently for potential technical glitches, mistakes or misuse. And running a search does not require reasonable suspicion, probable cause or a warrant. Another red flag for Ms. Garvie and privacy advocates is that even if youve never been arrested or pulled over for a traffic violation, your face is still likely one of tens of millions that police officers in the state can search for a potential match. In Florida, as of 2013, that includes 22 million driver license and state ID card photos in addition to 11 million law enforcement photos and an FBI database of 24.9 million mug shots. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles has not notified drivers that their pictures are searched thousands of times per month by law enforcement. Integrating millions of DL photos into a quickly searchable database alarmed Daniel Costoulas, a Marine Corps vet-eran who served as a security specialist in the Middle East and CEO of Global Security International in Fort Myers. It seems like an overreach of authority to dig into the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles)Ž photos, he said. Using such a database combined with increasingly high resolution cameras, including from private businesses, that capture images of people nearly every-where in public places, he said, there will be very few people walking down the street that you cant figure out who they are in a matter of seconds.Ž Officers can run a decent photo of a face from any source through the FACES database, such as an ATM sur-veillance camera, iPhone or Facebook picture. In seconds they get a virtual lineup of potential matches on their computer screen based on an algorithm supplied by MorphoTrust USA, Pinellas Sheriffs Office spokesman Sgt. Spencer Gross explained. That helps officers verify or discover the identity of people such as murder suspects, human traf-ficking victims, the deceased, drivers, or potentially anyone, anytime, anywhere. In Pinellas, all officers have access to FACES and are encouraged to use it and other biometric identification when-ever practical.Ž From the perspective of, I think, a lot of privacy advocates, facial recogni-tion is a case of the technology leaping ahead of the law,Ž said Adam Schwartz, senior lawyer with Electronic Frontier Foundation, a San Francisco-based non-profit that researches technology and civil liberties issues. Left behind, he said, are issues of privacy, freedom of speech and association, and racial bias. One of Georgetown Laws key findings is that face recognition searches are more likely to be run on African-Americans while at the same time using technology that is less accurate on dark-er faces. Police face recognition will disproportionately affect African-Americans,Ž the report reads. Many police depart-ments do not realize that. An FBI co-authored study suggests that face rec-ognition may be less accurate on black people.Ž And since blacks have historically been arrested at much higher rates than whites in the U.S., databases that include millions of mug shots have high-er returns for blacks. Like Georgetowns report, Mr. Schwartz said the rapidly improving technology raises Fourth Amendment questions, including about exceptions of privacy in public places. Face recogni-tion, he said, has the power to turn our lives into open books. Where have you been? What are you doing? Who were you with?Ž It could also have implications for First Amendment questions about pro-tecting free speech if police use it to ID people without their knowledge during political protests, for example. That, we believe, would chill people from participating in protests and other lawful activities,Ž he said. And it could be a threat to equal protection under the law and freedom from discrimination. Big brother or benign toolOf course that all depends on how its used now and in the future. Many TARGETFrom page 1“It seems like an overreach of authority to dig into the DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles photos.)” — Daniel Costoulas, a Marine Corps veteran who served as a security specialist in the Middle East and CEO of Global Security International in Fort Myers [MATCH] NAMEAGEADDRESSCURRENT LOCATIONCITYCELL PHONEROBERT BLUM362033 ROCK BEACH DR.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 24-30, 2016 NEWS A11Florida agencies with access to FACES describe it as a benign investigative tool. Key West Police Department detectives use FACES occasionally to further an investigation,Ž spokesperson Alyson Crean emailed. Lt. Scott Barnett of the Collier County Sheriffs Office, emailed, It could be for a gang-related investigation, homicide investigation „ any type of investiga-tion in which a detective needs to iden-tify someone.Ž He called FACES an investigative tool and not a means of identification.Ž A number of university police departments use FACES, including Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. FACES has only been used by our investigations unit to assist with the preparation of photo lineups,Ž wrote Sean Brammer, interim chief of police. We already have a subject and need faces that match to complete the lineup.Ž The Florida Gulf Coast University Police Department said it does not use face recognition technology. A search does not provide definitive identification like DNA or a fingerprint, law enforcement agencies stressed. It provides a list of likely and less likely matches and it is up to the officer to decide on a match and how to use the information. Its just a tool thats utilized to get you in the ballpark and get you some potential matches,Ž said Sgt. Gross, the Pinellas officer. Facial recognition and the way we use it, its not different from holding a photograph in one hand and now Im going to go through a book of photographs to see if I can find that per-son. The only difference is the software does it much more quickly and more efficiently.Ž But at the same time, agencies said FACES searches have ultimately led to arrests and convictions. Law enforce-ment agencies contacted for this story said that for them it had never led to arresting the wrong person. We would never make an arrest just because facial recognition said this is a possible match,Ž Sgt. Gross said. So I would say the answer to that is no.Ž However, it would be difficult to know for sure if it did since the results of searches and officers decisions to pursue suspects based on a search are not necessarily part of public record. For instance, Georgetowns researchers found that the Pinellas Sheriffs Office has never disclosed the use of face recognition to the public defenders office under the Brady disclosure rule. That rule requires disclosure of excul-patory or impeaching information and evidence that is material to the guilt or innocence or to the punishment of a defendant. Neither Pinellas County nor other agencies in the state have used real-time face recognition on live video to moni-tor crowds, Georgetowns researchers found, and none have expressed interest in doing so. But there is little preventing them from using the real-time software, which is available for sale and has been used by other agencies in the United States, including the Los Angeles Police Department, as well as private busi-nesses. Pinellas spokesman Sgt. Gross said live searches tracking people as they move has not been used and is not the purpose of our system,Ž although he didnt explicitly rule out the possibility. I dont think the sheriff has any intentions based on his interviews with the media recently,Ž he said, of using face recognition technology for live tracking.‘This report closes … gaps’Georgetown Laws report detailing the use of face recognition by police across the United States was published in October after more than 100 records requests to 90 agencies that produced some 15,000 pages of documents as well as dozens of interviews and other research over the course of a year-long investigation. The report calls use of the technology inevitableŽ and notes the benefits of face recognition in catching dan-gerous criminals. It focuses on how the technology has leapt ahead of the law and offers detailed recommenda-tions for checks and balances regulating its use through the legal system, law enforcement, government agencies, and in communities. Across the country, state and local police departments are building their own face recognition systems, many of them more advanced than the FBIs,Ž the report reads. We know very little about these systems. We dont know how they impact privacy and civil liberties. We dont know how they address accuracy problems. And we dont know how any of these systems „ local, state, or feder-al „ affect racial and ethnic minorities. This report closes these gaps.Ž Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri dismissed George-towns report out of hand. The report lacks context, is self-serv-ing, one-sided and was prepared to fit a predetermined agen-da,Ž he wrote. The sheriff declined to elaborate on his brief statement. Georgetowns Clare Garvie wrote in response: As our report makes clear, face recognition is a valuable tool that can be deployed in ways that catch dangerous criminals and help make communities safer. The officers using the technol-ogy are men and women of good faith. We believe that face recognition sys-tems pose very real risks, however, and that they should operate under clearly defined rules. This is what our report advocates for. We had a number of conversations with officials at the Pinellas County Sheriffs Office, who were admirably forthcoming with us about their use of face recognition. In an effort to be as accurate as possible, we also provided PCSO with an advance draft of our find-ings on Florida, and incorporated the feedback they provided into the final version. This was a practice we fol-lowed with all our jurisdiction-specific findings.Ž Among the Georgetown reports recommendations: Q Legislators should set limits on how law enforcement uses face recognition searches depending on how its used, including requiring reasonable suspi-cion of criminal conduct and limiting searches that are not part of the public record to felonies. Q Databases such as FACES should be based primarily on mug shots, while most searches that include driver license and ID photos should require a court order based on probable cause and restricted to serious crimes includ-ing identity theft. Q State departments of motor vehicles should notify the public if DL and ID photo searches are allowed. Q If real-time video face recognition is used it will redefine the nature of public spaces,Ž the report reads. Com-munities should carefully weigh wheth-er to allow real-time face recognition. If they do, it should be used as a last resort to intervene in only life-threaten-ing emergencies.Ž Q Use of face recognition to track people because of their political or reli-gious beliefs, or race or ethnicity, should be banned. Q All use of face recognition should be subject to checks and balances includ-ing public reporting, internal audits, and accuracy tests including for racially biased error rates.Local FACES agencies Many local and state agencies that the Pinellas County Office confirmed are among the 243 with access to FACES did not respond to repeated Florida Weekly requests or declined to discuss how offi-cers use it. They include the Fort Myers Police Department, Lee County Sheriffs Office, Monroe County Sheriffs Office, Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office, Charlotte County Sheriffs Office and The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-tion Commission. Beth Frady, a spokesperson for the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, said they were working on a response at press time to questions about how driver licenses are integrated into the FACES database and if they plan to notify people who get licenses that they will be part of police face recognition searches. DHSMV provides a service to Pinellas to allow face recognition search against drivers license,Ž a PCSO docu-ment provided by Georgetown reads. Teri Barbera, spokesperson for Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office said, Its an investigative tool and we do use it but were not willing to talk about how we use it or where we use it.Ž A spokesperson for The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, Rob Klepper, wrote: FWC prefers not to comment on specific techniques or products used during investigations that may reveal enforcement strategies and jeopardize the safety of our officers.Ž The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is also connected to FACES, according to Pinellas, but an FDLE spokesperson insisted the agency does not use it. Weve checked on that for you and we dont utilize that,Ž said Molly Best. We dont have anyone you can talk to about that.Ž She added, We dont utilize that but also we will not discuss our investiga-tive techniques.Ž Others were willing to talk about it.The Naples Police Department is not on PCSOs list of agencies with access to FACES. A spokesperson said that could change because they are currently wait-ing for approval from the chief of police to decide on whether to partner with PCSO. The Punta Gorda Police Department gained access to FACES in 2015. It has occasionally been used by detectives, but rarely in part because of Punta Gordas relatively low crime rate, said spokesperson Katie Heck. One of the challenges in using the system is that a poor quality photo or photo still, such as from an ATM or security camera video, often fails to provide reliable search results. It makes it kind of complicated when youre analyzing that poor quality sur-veillance photo and trying to find a match,Ž she said. Video cameras are quickly becoming cheaper and higher resolution, however, and she said PGPD may use face recog-nition searches more in the future. Q COURTESY PHOTOA screen shot of FACES shows an example of the lineup of potential matches officers can get by searching a photo against the data base.GUALTIERI “Police face recognition will disproportionately affect African-Americans ...Many police departments do not realize that.

So do Gator football and Mexican food. Mr. Bauer knows he is lucky to have so many things for which to be grateful. I am very thankful for my health,Ž he said. I have been generally pretty healthy my entire life. Not everyone can say that. Life can be very difficult if you have to manage each day in pain or with a medical hardship.Ž He describes his wife, Stacy, a fourth-grade teacher, as an amazing woman.Ž I know that several people say that their spouse is the best, but mine really is,Ž he said. Their boys, 9-year-old Luke and 6-year-old Chase, are typical all-American kidsŽ who treat others with respect, excel in school and play Little League baseball. Thanksgiving is a great way to remember that the important things in life are not purchased,Ž Mr. Bauer said. It is a sincere appreciation for the people and opportunities in your life.Ž The four of them always go to an aunts house in Rockledge for the holiday to spend time together as a family and share a meal. I guess that I should mention that we always eat our dessert first,Ž he said. That is our little twist and tradition.Ž„ Amy WoodsOwen ONeillExecutive director of Clinics Can Help Ten years ago, Owen ONeill, then a hospice nurse, brought an idea to Palm Healthcare Foundation, never imagin-ing what his dream would become, and how he „ and so many others „ would be so incredibly grateful for what has happened since. The foundation gave me grant funding for my start-up nonprofit agency, Clinics Can Help (, to recycle medical equip-ment as a way to increase access to medical care for people in need in Palm Beach County,Ž Mr. ONeill said. To this day, I have been amazed by the response. Every day Im thankful that there are people who believe in our organizations mis-sion and me. Not only have people donated their wheelchairs and hospital beds, but they have also given me their time, mentoring me on how to start and run a viable not-for-profit organization, connect-ing me with other funders and donors, and most importantly, introducing me to the many people and organizations who truly need our assistance.Ž Today, Clinics Can Help has a 5,000-squarefoot office and warehouse that has increased its capacity to help people by four times what it was last year „ an estimated 5,000 pieces (not including soft supplies) of medical equipment in 2017. You better believe that Im thankful for that,Ž Mr. ONeill said. But if you take it all away and you want to know why Im truly grateful, it is because Ive learned that the key to happiness is to help anoth-er person who genuinely needs you. To that point, there are so many people who cannot afford wheelchairs, but desperately need them. This Thanksgiving,Ž he said, it would mean so much to receive new or used wheelchairs so that we can offer others the gift of mobility and a fuller, greater life.Ž „ Mary ThurwachterBarbara Noble president of Max Planck Florida FoundationThe president of the Max Planck Florida Foundation in Jupiter comes from a long line of smart, strong women whose guidance and lessons motivate her to this day. Barbara Noble, whose job is to raise funds supporting the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neurosciences research into brain diseases, attributes the determination and drive to do so to those female elders. Im always grateful for the many blessings in my life bestowed upon me by the mentorship and leadership of others,Ž Ms. Noble said. I stand today on the broad shoulders of many people, and I never forget that.Ž She gives thanks every day to the team of scientists conducting groundbreaking laboratory experiments that will lead to a better understand-ing of the least-understood organ in the body. Im continually reminded of how fortunate we are to have them here and am inspired daily by their work,Ž she said. She also is appreciative of those who foot the bill. We at MPFI are especially grateful to our many loyal and supportive donors who give gen-erously of their resources because they believe so deeply in the life-changing ramifications of our research,Ž she said. She will celebrate Thanksgiving … her 89-year-old mothers favorite holiday … by preparing a tradition-al turkey dinner for family, friends and four-legged feasters, too … and watching lots of football.„ Amy WoodsAJ BrockmanThe Brewhouse Gallery and The Kelsey TheaterAlthough artist AJ Brockman has been given a tough break in life, using a wheelchair since the age of 2 because of spinal muscu-lar atrophy, no one is more thankful than he for the suc-cess of his B rewhouse Gallery in Lake Park „ or more excited to see its phenomenal growth. Im just so thankful for the response weve had,Ž Mr. Brockman said. Over the last year, that momentum has really started to happen.Ž Mr. Brockman is gallery curator and resident artist of The B rewhouse Gallery, which he says is the perfect place to sip a brew (whether its coffee or craft beer), hold a meeting, share ideas, listen to music and appreciate local art. Free Wi-Fi is available as well as an eclectic mix of comfort-able furniture that customers are also invited to purchase. However, the main mission of the place, he said, is to support local arts and build a sense of community. Now in its second year, it is doing just that. The thankfulness I have comes from the people who got behind our idea and our vision,Ž he said, and the grassroots effort of not only sup-porting B rewhouse as a local business, but in turn supporting the artists that showcase the art we love and revitalizing a forgotten area within a forgotten town.Ž Mr. Brockman said he also is thankful for the Brewhouse employees and patrons who maintain the place as a hub of creativity, supporting the work of visual and performing artists. They all come out on a night-to-night basis and really embrace our vision of moving for-ward,Ž he said. And hes wasted no time moving forward. After taking over a neighboring convenience store and expanding Brewhouse from 1,800 square feet to 3,000 a year ago, Mr. Brockman and his associates recently took over the entire plaza „ the whole 700 block of Park Avenue in Lake Park, in fact „ and are turning it into a full scale art district including an ad agency, a dance studio, a vintage toy store and the Kelsey Theater, a 500-seat per-forming arts venue. That was always my long-term vision,Ž he said. But I never dreamed wed own a whole city block!

Every year, she welcomes family and friends into her home for Thanksgiving, and this year, her sister is coming to visit from Atlanta.„ Amy WoodsKayla AbramowitzCKO (Chief Kid Officer) of Kayla Cares 4 KidsSometimes the smallest things that happen day to day make a huge difference and you may not even realize it, says Kayla Abramowitz, CKO (Chief Kid Officer) of Kayla Cares 4 Kids, a nonprofit the 14-year-old started in 2013 after she and her 11-year-old brother, Ethan, had extended hospital stays. The North Palm Beach teenager has Crohns disease, juvenile arthritis and eosinophilic colitis. Her brother has juvenile arthritis, eosinophilic esophagitis and uses a feeding machine. Her organization collects and donates educational and entertainment items to childrens hos-pitals nationwide. The amazing kindness of people in the community and across the country have enabled Kayla Cares 4 Kids to thrive,Ž Miss Abramowitz said. Im so thankful for everyone who has helped turn my small idea into a very (unex-pectedly) big national charity „ especially the Palm Beach North Chamber of Commerce, which launched my organization through the Young Entrepreneurs Academy. Daszkal Bolton and Palm Beach Gardens Kiwanis held highly successful fundraisers, while STORE Self Storage donated a large storage unit,Ž she said. Palm Beach SCORE provided me with a tremendous mentor in Kathy Rendo. Jupiter Medical Center made an extremely generous sponsorship. We are so very thankful for the gen-erous in-kind donations from Preferred Printing, Signs by Tomorrow, Sams Club and Walmart. Several local schools, Hello Labs, Starbucks, Dr. Justin Chisari and Tenn Yuk Orthodontics have collected thousands of items for my organization. Organizations such as Volunteer Florida, Central Palm Beach Chamber of Commerce, Palm Beach County Medical Society Services, Kohls Cares, Youth Service America/WPLG-TV and Jef-ferson Awards/WPTV have honored me locally, while Prudential, Office Depot Foundation, Diller Family Foundation, U.S. Chamber of Commerce/YEA and the Heart of America Foundation have all honored me with national awards. A Palm Beach Gardens couple Ive never met donated $4,000 to Kayla Cares 4 Kids, after see-ing a story about our organization. Politicians including Florida CFO Jeff Atwater, Gov. Rick Scott, Rep. Patrick Murphy, Rep.

The Benzaiten is not only focused on bringing art to life, it also aims at immersing the public in arts production and its creative processes, while pro-viding direct interaction with artists from both around the corner and around the world. Im thankful that the word has gotten out about the Benzaiten Center and people are excit-ed about it,Ž Ms. Berkow said. She said Benzaiten houses one of the only studios of its kind that allows the community to come in, free of charge, to witness the creative process in action. They can see, in real time, fine art being created in front of them,Ž she said. Its really a unique situation. Im pretty proud of that „ and of our excellent staff of artisans and creative director Anita Holmes „ and very thankful to see it all happen.Ž But Ms. Berkow doesnt want to stop there.We have on our little dream list the idea of creating a working sculpture garden,Ž she said, where you wouldnt just have monumental sculptures.

ConsignDesign&GARDENS GALLERY COMING SOON! BEHIND THE WHEEL2017 Nissan Titan Pro-4X: Diesel does it betterFifty thousand dollars for a truck?!Those who havent looked at pickups since they were the low-cost option for their high school transport are often shocked. What was once a budget-friendly option has now become pre-mium transport. But trucks like this 2017 Nissan Titan 4x4 loaded with Pro-4X off-road trim and plenty of options (retail $52,700 as seen here) are out to be the luxury transport that can move people and mountains at the same time. While thats not what everybody needs, for some people there is true utility once sticker shock subsides. Weve already reviewed the XD (eXtra Duty) version of the Titan ear-lier this summer. From the exterior its difficult to distinguish between it and the standard version seen here. They are identical with a tall, tough face, and machismo heightened (literally) with the extra ground clearance of the 4x4 trim. The XD version is a little higher thanks to a completely different chassis, and the bed is about a foot longer. Recogniz-ing these variations is nearly impossible unless the XD and regular versions are parked side-by-side. Inside is even more similarity. Regardless of engine choice, the Crew Cab design offers four full-size doors that lead to adult-sized comfort for five. Not only can a large pickup now offer more seat acreage than the family station wagon, but also the option list has grown to luxury sedan sized proportions. This Pro-4X model starts at $45K, but it quickly gets loaded with more pack-age-specific options that range from a digital compass to the yellow paint that gets this 4x4 mistaken for a taxicab on city streets. There are some very worth-while options like the AroundView monitor that displays a full 360-degree view. Its exceptionally helpful for every-thing from hitching a trailer to everyday parking, but useful features like this end up being bundled with thousands of dol-lars in other options. Thats how a $50K pickup quickly becomes a reality. The distinguishing feature for this standard version is that the 5.6-liter gas-oline V8 is making its debut in the Titan lineup. Its 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque make for a very capable power plant. Surprisingly, its well refined with a quiet operation and low vibration. But the strongpoint of the gas V8 might also be its downfall. The diesel motor we tested was also surprisingly hushed, and in fact, both of the motors Nissan offers in the Titan are very quiet for the market segment. The gas V8 is a 32-valve, DOHC unit with variable valve timing „ the same kind of recipe we see in some sports cars. On the road, this motor feels forceful but not fast, just like the F-150 and Silverado. So theres an argument here that the Nis-san missed an opportunity at creating a unique niche with a hot rod pickup. Furthermore, it should be no surprise that the diesel is the Titan hauling king. The standard gas V8 we tested can tow 9,390 lbs., the XD version using the same V8 but a stronger chassis can haul 11,270 lbs., and the diesel XD tops them all at 12,314 lbs. (by comparison, the Ford F-150 can tow up to 10,400 lbs.) But the real difference is that the extra torque of the turbo diesel means fuel economy can be doubled when driving the long haul. The Pro-4X trim is all about going offroad. It comes with goodies like special Bilstein shocks, skid plates and a locking rear differential. But this package is also available in the stronger XD version with a diesel option. And, once again, the extra torque of the diesel will be a very welcomed feature when its time to slowly crawl out of the sandpit. Pric-ing isnt a factor, because all the options loaded into our standard Pro-4X makes it equal to the cost of upgrading to the stronger XD chassis and better engine. So why have a gas-powered version at all? Nissan knows that not everyone is comfortable with the operation and maintenance of a diesel. The gas V8 is a more mainstream motor that offers broader appeal and is still very capable. But for those of us who really use a 4x4 and arent shocked by $50K prices, were always willing to trade in luxuries for hardcore torque power. Q myles

A18 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 24-30, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY HEALTHY LIVINGHow to heal the rift after a bitter electionShelly Smith ducked her head. Yes, that was Gloria Prince in the next aisle. Shelly quickly left Publix without looking back. Shelly didnt have the strength to face Gloria today, even though Gloria had always been such a good friend. Shelly was still reeling from the argument Shellys husband, Ray, had with Glorias husband, Arthur, at a charity fundraiser. It was never a secret to Shelly and Ray that Arthur Prince carried very strong opposing political views. But the Smiths had always respected Arthur as a goodhearted, intelligent professional who believed strongly in his convictions. However, the climate had become notably different this election cycle. Arthur had become more overbearing and sanctimonious. The conversations had felt very judgmental and extremely dismissive. Never before had Shelly and Ray felt so personally attacked than the way they had been treated by Arthur at the fundraiser. So, Election Day has finally passed. Our nation has just endured a vitriolic, divisive and enormously painful chapter in its history. By early November, most of us had become overburdened and weary, bar-raged by an avalanche of jarring political ads, incessant robocalls and intrusive mailings. And, when we attempted to watch the news we were subjected to talking heads ranting at each other „ rarely taking the time to consider what the other had said. According to a CBS/New York Times poll in early November, 82 percent of likely voters were more disgusted than excited about the election. Most of us have said repeatedly: We cant wait until its over.Ž But, sadly, taking a final tally and declaring a victor has not quelled the firestorm of emotions. In recent months, mental health professionals have noted a sharp increase in their clients reports of anxiety, fear, anger, sadness and worry about the effect the elections o utcome w ould have on themselves, their families, the nation, and the world „ regardless of which candi-date they were supporting. What was especially troubling to many was the show of rude and belittling behavior from many family members and friends they trusted. Just like with the couples in the fictionalized vignette above, many of their discussions had deteriorated into character assassina-tions, with ugly mud-slinging. It seemed some individuals felt so morally superior in their beliefs that they felt entitled to rage or dismiss those having strong opin-ions to the contrary. Discussions became so personal that people found themselves avoiding family and friends because it was too galling or painful to be in each others presence. So, is it possible to heal from this? To do so may require a great deal of collective introspection and dialogue. No matter ones personal beliefs, it also will require that we accept and respect the notion that people with different view-points may feel passionately about their positions, and believe in their hearts that their vision for the country is the right vision. These individuals might have looked at the opposing candidate with genuine alarm, truly believing that persons behavior, ethics and vision for the country was seriously impaired. If we listen with an open mind, we sometimes may learn that we may actually find value in some of what they say, or even may have common ground. Going forward, we can take steps to remind ourselves what we do have in common with our loved ones and friends, and focus on restoring goodwill and har-mony. Its important we give each other the time and space to process how we have felt about this election. We might then consider whether we wish to open a sincere discussion about our desire to move forward. If weve hurt each others feelings, it might help to acknowledge this, while recognizing each party has the right to think differently. Both sides will have to decide if the relationship is important enough to repair. Holding on to resentment is a choice. Going forward, we can head off controversy by deciding ahead of time whether to engage in political sparring (and how involved well ultimately become). Even if another person eggs us on, were not obligated to enter the fray. We have every right to say: Lets table this.Ž If we need to vent, its probably best to seek others who are more aligned with our view-points. If things do begin to spiral out of control, we can take charge and be the bigger person.Ž In fact, if we know the person well enough, we might give him or her a hug and say: Even if I think youre off base, I still care about you!Ž We should make sure to smile so its clear wed like to look past the disagreement and clear the air.And, even if we believe in our hearts that our way is the best (or only) direc-tion for our country, its unfair to impose these positions on others. When we com-municate that we wish to have a respect-ful interchange, its more likely our views might be considered. We might look for something we can agree about in the other persons stance, while we remember its unlikely any person or candidate will be totally aligned with our perspective.Friends, its important that we remember: We live in a country that preserves our rights to freely speak about our views. There are very bright people on both sides of the political aisle. We usu-ally can learn from each other, if we are open to understanding each others point of view. Lets find a way to look past our differences and disdain, to remember the important qualities we have loved and admired in each other. Q „ Linda Lipshutz, M.S., LCSW, is a psychotherapist.

ADAM LEE, MDMedical Director of Surgical Oncology and the Thoracic Surgery & Lung Center of Excellence at Jupiter Medical CenterNovember is lung cancer aware-ness month, a time when we consider a hard reality „its estimated that 158,080 Ameri-cans will die from lung cancer in 2016. This human toll accounts for almost 27 per-cent of all cancer deaths. The most dangerous fact about lung cancer is that symptoms typically do not present themselves until the late stages. Thats why screening examination is crucial for those considered at high risk of the disease, even before symptoms begin. In the world of preventive medicine, screenings are tests designed to detect early disease or risk factors for a health condition in an otherwise healthy indi-vidual. By contrast, a diagnostic test is a procedure to confirm or rule out the presence of disease in someone who is actively experiencing symptoms. This means if youre a current or former smoker or someone with a family his-tory of lung cancer„in other words, someone at increased risk of the dis-ease„you shouldnt wait for a cough, wheezing or chest pain before you think about taking action. Individuals who are showing no signs of disease, but are known to be at higher risk for developing lung cancer, should seek out low-dose computed tomogra-phy (CT) screening. CT technology is proven to aid in finding lung cancers in their earliest stages, when more than 80 percent of cases can be cured. If youre a current or former smoking, getting a low-dose CT lung scan at Jupiter Medi-cal Center gives you the power to safe-guard your health. Medicare Part B (medical insurance) covers a lung CT once per year for those who meet Medicares screening criteria. Commercial insurance may cover the screening but qualifying cri-teria and out-of-pocket costs depend on your plan. At Jupiter Medical Center we offer CT lung screening for $99, which includes consultation with the radiolo-gist, the exam, the radiologists interpretation, and a consultation with the tho-racic surgeon, if needed. A physicians order may be required for this exam and our patient navigator will facilitate this process, when necessary. You may be a candidate for CT lung screening if you are NOT currently experiencing any symptoms AND you answer yes to the questions in this risk assessment. Q Are you age 40 or older? Q Are you a current or former smoker? Q Have you smoked at least 1 pack of cigarettes a day for 20 years? Q Do you have a parent, sibling or child with lung cancer? There are many centers today that offer health screenings; choosing Jupi-ter Medical Center for your preventive health gives you so much more. Our Thoracic Surgery and Lung Center of Excellence is recognized as a Screening Center of Excellence by the Lung Can-cer Alliance and is a designated Lung Cancer Screening Center by the Ameri-can College of Radiology. If a problem is found, my colleagues and I are uniquely prepared to help you begin appropriate management of your health. The purpose of the CT lung screening is to look for abnormalities, called nod-ules, in the lungs. Nodules are common, and about 97 percent are noncancerous. However, a nodule can represent early lung cancer. At Jupiter Medical Center, we have a Lung Nodule Clinic made up of the regions leading interventional radiolo-gists, pulmonologists and oncologists. This group specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of suspected lung nod-ules. Our team is quick to create a plan of care the same day as your consultation, and patients get the support of an oncol-ogy navigator to guide them through any further treatment. Take the time this month to determine if youre at increased risk of lung cancer and get screened. If you are a smoker, sign up for one of Jupiter Medi-cal Centers free smoking cessation pro-grams. Invest the time and care in your health today and youll breathe easier in the future. To discuss scheduling a CT lung screening at J upiter M edical Center or to learn about our free, six-week smoking cessation classes, call 263-4437. Q K. ADAM LEE, MD




BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 24-30, 2016 A20 | WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM MOVING ON UPGirl Scouts are about so much more than cookies and camp. So says Lisa Johnson, the new CEO of Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida, an organization that serves more than 10,700 girls in Palm Beach, Broward, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee Counties. Girl Scouts is about leadership, it prepares girls to have a voice and lead,Ž she said. Its about building confi-dence. Its about outdoor living. Its about community service.Ž Mrs. Johnson, a 20-year veteran of Girl Scouting, joined Girl Scouts of Palm Glades Council as director of communications in 1996. Most recently, she served as chief strategy officer, where she was responsible for market-ing, fund development, product sales and retail operations. Before working with Girl Scouts, Mrs. Johnson was director of marketing and communications for the American Red Cross in Charlotte, N.C. I like mission-based work,Ž she said. I like working for national nonprofits.Ž Her first order of business as CEO, Mrs. Johnson said, is meeting with each of the 47 staff members to hear their thoughts and find out how she could best support them. Ive already had 30 meetings,Ž she said. Im inspired by them. Im impressed with the level of profession-alism and dedication they have.Ž Her focus for Girl Scouts, she said, includes increasing membership. To grow, our biggest challenge is getting volunteers to serve as leaders,Ž Mrs. Johnson said. She will also focus on reinvigorating the organizations outdoor programs and on keeping the Girl Scouts finan-cially stable. Cookie sales pay for 74 percent of our operating budget, but we want to diversify our funding source,Ž she said. The Girl Scouts, she said, put more than $1 million in the hands of girls to decide how to use it. Although she was born in upstate New York, where she was a Girl Scout, Mrs. Johnson moved with her family to Fort Pierce when she was in third grade. She has a B.S. in marketing from the University of Central Florida and an M.B.A. from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. She is a gradu-ate of Leadership Palm Beach Coun-ty, where she serves on the board of directors and is a founding member of Impact the Palm Beaches, a group that makes $100,000 transformational grants to local organizations. Lisa JohnsonAge: 48 Where I grew up: Fort Pierce Where I live now: Wellington Education: B.S. in business administration from University of Central Florida and M.B.A. from University of North Carolina-Charlotte. What brought me to Florida: First moved to Florida the summer after third grade. Moved to North Carolina the day after graduating college and enjoyed seven years in Charlotte before returning home to Florida during a job transfer for my husband, Wayne. Our families were here and we wanted to start our own family, so the timing was perfect. My job today: CEO, Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida My first job and what it taught me: As a kid, I spent Saturdays at my aunt and uncles gas station for $10 a day, plus tips. A full-service station, I learned quickly that the level of ser-vice I provided (pumping gas, washing windshields and checking tire pressure) was directly related to the amount of money I came home with. It was my first exposure to the harder you work, the luckier you get.Ž My first realŽ job after graduating college was in special events for the National Multiple Scle-rosis Society. It was there that I found my passion to work in a mission-based environment. A career highlight: For our 100th anniversary in 2012, we interviewed many local women about the impact that being a Girl Scout had on their lives. To hear things like, Everything I am is because of Girl Scouts,Ž Girl Scouts is where I met my best friend,Ž In Girl Scouts, I was told that I was a leader ƒ so I became oneŽ or I found my passion for science in Girl Scouts and built a career on that passion,Ž was so inspiring. We dont always see the impact of each program, each activity or each interaction we have with our girls when it is happening „ but you never know what one thing might make all the difference to a girl. What I do when Im not working: As a mom to two very busy boys (Andrew is 16 and Adam is 13), you will usually find me on a baseball field, basketball court, or watching a musical performance when I am not working. On our rare free weekends, you will often find us at Universal Studios or Islands of Adventure. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: Jump in! The hours are long and the work is hard, but the impact you can have on the lives of those you serve is immeasurable. Over 20 years, I have watched an entire gen-eration of girls in our area grow up in Girl Scouts „ and now some of them are coming back with their own daugh-ters. I cant imagine a more rewarding career. About mentors: So many people were part of my journey, and I will always be grateful for that. Denise Valz, our former CEO, was a mentor for me. Over our 11 years together, she encour-aged me, challenged me, supported me and almost always said yesŽ to every idea or project I wanted to try. She let me fail, because she knew that through failure, I would learn and become stron-ger. Denise was, and still is, my biggest advocate. She taught me a great deal about the kind of leader I want to be.

As I made my way to the Center for Creative Education to see the exhibition titled Wild Florida,Ž I was expecting to see more cute animal photos and scenic Florida sunset views typical of such shows. What I saw was staggeringly different and shattered all my notions of what a wildlife photographic exhibition could be. I knew then that this was not a typical run-of-the-mill photographic exhibition. Gallery Manager Jonathon OrtizSmykla said these photographers are the best of the best, including many from National Geographic, as well as the Discovery Channel. He, along with pho-tographer Greg Matthews, curated the group exhibition of native, wild Florida photography that focuses on subjects and true art of photography that come from within the state of Florida and are taken in the wild,Ž Mr. Ortiz-Smykla said. The Center for Creative Education and charitable partner South Florida Wildlands Association hope to raise ecological awareness with this group exhibition on wildlife, habitats and envi-ronmental impacts affecting them. The Wild FloridaŽ photographers are envi-ronmental advocates, using their images to spread their message. These world-renowned photographers are literally doing the dirty work to spread the message of conservation. At a young age, Florida native photogra-pher Mac Stone developed his passion, growing up in Gainesville, exploring the springs and swamps of Central Florida. However, after venturing around the rest of the world, he found that his backyard was his favorite subject. Mr. Stone elaborates, Ive been photographing all over the world and I promise you, what we have here in the South, what we have in the Sunshine State, rivals anything else that Ive seen. But yet our tourism industry is busy pro-moting all the wrong things.Ž Like many of these photographers BY ROBYN ROBERTSFlorida Weekly Correspondent COURTESY PHOTO“Embrace,” by Peter BrannonSEE WILD, B5 X It’s a most wonderful time of the year — for “Allied” (Nov. 23) “Jackie” (Dec. 21) “Passengers” (Dec. 23)“Kidnap” (Dec. 2) BY DAN HUDAKFlorida Weekly CorrespondentAH, THE HOLIDAY SEASON.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 24-30, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY scott SIMMONS Platter sets the scene for a look to the past COLLECTORS CORNERWhere: All Good Things, 328 N. Dixie Highway, Lake Worth; (561) 547-7606. Cost: $28 The skinny: This unmarked 12inch blue transfer platter dates from the early to mid-19th century. My friend Tom Moyle, an expert in all things English, says the scene on the platter almost certainly depicts a town in the Lake District of England. It probably was made in the Staffordshire area, home to many of Englands finest potters. The platter is in good used condition „ there are a few utensil marks, but no cracks or chips. The back has myriad scratches that tell the story of up to 200 years of use. Q THE FIND: When my parents added a bedroom to our house in Fort Myers after my brother was born, I remember that the room had navy blue drapes. It also had a built-in shadowbox to fill the void that once had been a window. Grandma knew just what my mom needed to decorate that space, and gave her pieces of blue transferware „ a couple of Wedgwood plates depicting historic scenes and one seemingly ancient Blue Willow plate. The pieces came from Grandmas family and as such, must have been quite old, or so we thought. As you might have guessed, family lore has a way of evolving. That was the 1970s, and those Wedgwood plates dated from around the turn of the last century, probably from when Grandmas great-uncle had traveled the world as a U.S. Army photographer, documenting Cuba, the Philippines and other regions affected by the Spanish-American War. They were 60, maybe 70 years old at best back then, or not much older than Grandma was at the time. But the Blue Willow plate was old even back then „ it probably dates from the middle of the 19th century. I love the Asian-inspired Blue Willow, with its story of thwarted lovers and its design of the willow tree, two birds and a pagoda. And few folks were happier than I back in the 1980s and 90s, when Spode reintroduced Blue Willow, its Blue Italian and other series of transferware that incorporated designs first used in the 19th century. There are few things more attractive than the deep blue indigo blue of the design against a stark white background. Designs often were inspired by the costly porcelain exported to Europe from China, and could be found in an array of colors. The name transferware comes from potters use of tissue to transfer the design from a printing plate to the pottery itself. When the technique was developed in mid-18th century England, it enabled potters to mass-produce dinnerware and other pieces, opening a market to consumers other than the wealthy. A 19th-century English transferware platterSCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis English transferware platter dates from the early to mid-19th century. Then, as now, the designs of pieces frequently commemorated an event or a locale. It offered an opportunity to educate people who never traveled far beyond their homes about different cultures and regions. The pieces offer us an opportunity to see the world through their eyes. Who can put a price on that? Q

Save and Be Merry With Our Specials for Downtown Accommodations FLORIDA WRITERS Motives and means collide in shadowy Sunshine State thrillerQ The Gail ForceŽ by Robert Lane. Mason Alley Publishing. 341 pages. Trade paperback, $14.95. This fourth title in Robert Lanes Jake Travis series maintains the pow-erful rush of sus-pense, the intricate observations about places and per-sonalities and the complex tradecraft of its hero that fans have come to expect. The task Jake undertakes time is unusu-ally convoluted, the stakes are high and the women are very, very attractive. Karl Anderson and his pretty wife, Riley, have found trouble. Karl has disap-pointed a sinister fellow named Phillip Agatha, who under the cover of run-ning an art gallery is an entrepreneur in blackmail and murder. Karl does not escape Agathas wrath, but he manages to get Riley on her way to safety. Soon she is depending on Jake to protect her, which means eventually dealing with Agatha. Known as the Fat Man, Agatha is the target of an FBI investi-gation, but he seems to lead a charmed life for one in this position. No doubt many people he deals with would like to rat him out, but he may have influence inside the FBI „ someone whose personal and professional interests benefit from his ser-vices. This is truly one of those you cant tell the good guys from the bad guysŽ situations, and Mr. Lane handles all the implications and nuances of this morally murky envi-ronment with great skill. Jake and his long-time, super-skilled buddies team up with an FBI sting meant to bring down Agatha. Millions of dol-lars flow in and out of various accounts to make this happen. Jakes FBI insider, the attractive female Agent Binelli, with whom he has partnered before, manages the alliance. This task brings Jake, under cover of course, to Agathas offices and his super-yacht, The Gail Force. A man of incred-ible taste and the money to indulge it, Agatha would like to keep things that way. He sends his lovely assistant Chris-tina to show Jake around. She presents quite a distraction; their relationships builds from role-playing to flirtation and verges on becoming much more. In fact, just as suspenseful as the pains-takingly schemed mission is the growing magnetism between Jake and the much younger Christina. Jakes attraction to her complicates the readers understanding of his healthy, uplifting and fortunate relationship with Kathleen. Its clear that Kathleen, developed in the previous Jake Travis novels, is the love of his life, the perfect mate „ and perhaps more than he deserves. The scenes between Jake and Kathleen are magic in every way. Competitive connoisseurship is one thing that brings them together and is a major enjoyment factor for read-ers. Music, books, wordplay, food, drink „ can-you-top-this challenges of all kinds „ bring smiles to them both. Oddly, the same kind of competition drives a bitter struggle between Agatha and Jake. You like boats? This book has a few beauties. You like the tastes and smells of southern Florida and the Caribbean? Mr. Lane offers plenty of that. You like the mental gymnastics of spycraft? Its here in spades. You like well-drawn, memorable characters, saints and sinners, in a range of relation-ships? I promise youll find them here. At the center of it all is the richly textured characterization of Jake Travis, one of the best leading men to take the thriller fiction stage in recent years. In Jake, the author mixes confidence and doubt, steadiness and recklessness, toughness and sensitivity in engaging proportions. He is consistently complex. I havent heard about a movie offer yet, but I wont be surprised if it happens. About the authorMr. Lanes literary crime-noir stories layer action-packed drama with compelling characters, timeless themes and a tropical setting. His debut novel, The Second Letter,Ž was received with critical acclaim and won the 2015 Inde-pendent Book Publishers Associations Benjamin Franklin Award for Best New Voice: Fiction. His second Jake Travis novel, Cooler Than Blood,Ž was published in February 2015 and was followed later that year by The Cardinals Sin.Ž All have been reviewed in these pages. Mr. Lane resides on the west coast of Florida, probably just about where Jake lives near St. Pete Beach, a small barrier island city in the shadow of St. Petersburg. Q „ Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.

His action shot titled The HuntŽ is one image from his photo series Snail Hunt-er,Ž which visually documents one of the Everglades most iconic birds. These featured photographers will bunk up for the night in the swamp, sleeping in a hammock, enduring harsh challenges to capture the storytelling images. We have this gnawing thing in the back of our mind that even in our darkest moments and our times of despair, we think Hey, there may be an image to be made here. There might be a story to be told,Ž he said in a TED Talk. These photographers are the great observers. Patiently waiting in the wil-derness, quietly adjusting their camera settings, ready to pounce like a panther when that perfect moment has presented itself. What shocked me was that not only did these photographers capture intimate moments up-close that have never before been seen in this light, but also they did it in such a beautiful, technically skilled way. They perfectly timed the cameras expo-sure to paintŽ with light shining through the swamp waters or to highlight the reflection of the dozen wading alligators eyes at night. Sometimes, these images take months of planning and waiting; all resulting in a split second of the camera shutter to capture that one moment. Separated into themes, the exhibition features subject matter such as owls, gators, as well as painterly abstract images of nature. One viewer of the abstracted photographs commented that when she first saw them she thought they were paintings. Conservation photographer David Moynahans Pines in the MistŽ channeled a feeling of Impressionist paint-er Claude Monet. The serene moment captured by Mr. Moynahan is ideal as his goal is to help raise awareness of the natural and beautiful world that surrounds us.Ž He believes that we are in an environ-mental crisis and too many people are disconnected by nature.Ž In contrast, Americas Conservation Land,Ž by Raymond Gehman, makes an unmistakable message from the grassy fields of Dinner Island Ranch. He was a National Geographic Society photog-rapher for 25 years and exhibits a wide variety of dynamic and powerful imag-es. From his crystal-clear infrared scenic views of Florida to experimental digital strobe effects on ibis in the Everglades, his message is a bold one in which he hopes to reconnect the public with these natural environments that are being forgotten and overlooked. Also found in the Wild FloridaŽ exhibition are artists who won the call to artistsŽ for the show. Funds from the call contributed to the prizes. The Wild Flor-idaŽ photo contest winners were Quinn Hiaasen for Lightning Over Florida BayŽ (first place), Christopher Evans for Blue Cypress LakeŽ (second place), and Peter Brannon for EmbraceŽ (third place). Featured fine art photographers in the Wild Florida exhibitions are Raymond Gehman, Chris Gillette, Paul Marcellini, Greg Matthews, David Moynhan, Marina Scarr, Mac Stone and Carlton Ward. The photographers shown in Wild FloridaŽ exhibition do not merely capture beautiful images, but they are taking the viewer on a journey, sharing moments never before seen by the human eye. As Mr. Stone promises, The swamp will change you,Ž and I can promise that this exhibition will change the way you view photography. Q „ Wild Florida,Ž an exhibition of fine art photography that comes within the state of Florida and taken in the wild, features works from world-renowned photographers. It will be on exhibit through Dec. 17 in the gallery at The Center for Creative Education, at 425 24th St. in West Palm Beach. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Admission is free and open to the public during regular gallery hours.

The classical-music anchor of the Kravis Cen-ters 25th Anniversary Season, Regional Arts is sponsored by Leonard and Sophie Davis. Concerning our Music At Two series, the New World Symphony is replacing the St. Petersburg Philharmonic on Monday, Feb. 20 at 2 p.m. The Philharmonic has canceled part of its North American tour, including its performance originally sched-uled at that time,Ž says Lee Bell, the Kravis Centers senior director of programming. We are delighted that the New World Symphony, with Alasdair Neale as guest conductor, will perform instead on that date,Ž he adds. In celebration of the Kravis Centers 25th Anniversary Season, the New World Symphony is performing its dis-tinctive all-concerto program „ an event never before presented outside of Miami. A highly anticipated staple of each New World season, the concert will spotlight top prize-winners from the orchestras con-certo competition.Ž The Kravis Center also is announcing that the Prague Philharmonia Music At EightŽ performance scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 10, at 8 p.m., has doubled the soloist lineup for its U.S. tour.

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 24-30, 2016 GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYNovember 23 Q “Allied”With Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard starring, and Robert Zemeckis (Forrest GumpŽ) directing, this has epic Oscar contender written all over it. Pitt and Cotillard play resistance fighters in WWII who fall in l ove, but trouble abounds with the information that she may be a Nazi spy. It seems even on the big screen Pitt cant escape relationship trouble. Q “Moana”Disney Animation has been so good of late (Frozen,Ž Big Hero 6Ž and Zoo-topiaŽ) that its hard to have any doubt about its latest, which follows a young woman (Aulii Cravalho) and the demi-God (voiced by Dwayne Johnson) who joins her for a trip across the ocean. Q “Bad Santa 2”This is all I wanted for Christmas. The long-awaited sequel to the raunchy and fantastically inappropriate 2003 hit finds Willie (Billy Bob Thornton) and Mar-cus (Tony Cox) ripping off a charity on Christmas Eve. Kathy Bates joins the fray as Willies mom and Christina Hendricks plays the new love interest. Q “Rules Don’t Apply”All hail the return of Warren Beatty, this time playing someone more ego-maniacal than himself, Howard Hughes. The eclectic cast includes Alec Baldwin, Martin Sheen, Lily Collins, Haley Bennett and Alden Ehrenreich, and the tone looks playful. Lets just hope its not as irretriev-ably stupid as the first trailer made it look. December 2Q “Kidnap”Halle Berry plays a mother trying to find her kidnapped son. So yes, the steep, sad decline of her career continues. December 9Q “Manchester by the Sea”Casey Affleck is earning Oscar buzz for his performance as an uncle forced to care for his teenage nephew after his brother (Kyle Chandler) dies. Returning home also means confronting his ex-wife (Michelle Williams) and his past. Q “Office Christmas Party”For many, if I wrote that this is this years star-studded rowdy Christ-mas comedy,Ž that would be enough to know if you want to see it. Expect juve-nile humor and utter ridiculousness. Jason Bateman, Jennifer Anis-ton, Kate McKinnon and many more star.Q “Nocturnal Animals” Director Tom Fords follow-up to A Single ManŽ (2009) stars Amy Adams as an unhappy art gallery owner whose ex-husband (Jake Gyl-lenhaal) sends her the manuscript of his latest book, and the parallels to their real lives are striking. Ive seen it and can tell you its dense, three-tiered, possibly brilliant and always intriguing. December 16“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”All the reshoots and production problems that have plagued this Episode IVŽ pre-quel will quickly be forgotten if its a success, and will be all that anyone talks about if its a dud. Director Gareth Edwards struggled with GodzillaŽ in 2014, so this film, which chronicles how the plans for the Death Star were stolen, gives us plenty to worry about.“La La Land”The buzz surrounding writer/director Damien Chazelles (WhiplashŽ) musical starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone is electric, meaning many Oscar voters will be watching with eager eyes to see if Chazelle can do it again. “Collateral Beauty”David Frankel (Marley & MeŽ) directs Will Smith as a man whos lost his will to live, and the friends (and others?) trying to help him find meaning in it all. Great cast: Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren, Michael Pena, Kate Win-slet, Edward Norton and Naomie Harris. Hopefully it doesnt get preachy/sappy while hitting its dramatic highlights. December 21“Sing”Illumination Entertainment has had great suc-cess with the Despicable MeŽ movies and Minions,Ž so why not have a koala bear try to drum up business for his strug-gling theater by hosting a singing competition? Add in a tremendous voice ensemble (Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane), pay exorbitant fees for the rights to use the songs, and we could have an animated Pitch PerfectŽ-type hit on our hands. “Jackie”Natalie Portman plays Jackie Kennedy in the days following her husband Johns assassination in November 1963. Word is its fantastic and Portman could be look-ing at her second Oscar. “Lion”Dev Patel, Rooney Mara and Nicole Kidman star in this story of a young man in Australia who uses Google Earth to find his long lost home in India. Remember when Kidman was a legit star? Its getting harder for me to. “Patriots Day” Mark Wahlberg and his Deepwater HorizonŽ director Peter Berg team up for a retelling of events before and after the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Limited release; expanding nationwide Jan. 13. December 23“Passengers”Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt play passengers on a space ship to a distant col-ony who wake up 90 years before theyre scheduled to arrive. Whoops. There has to be more to it than this, and with director Morten Tyldum (The Imitation GameŽ) at the helm, we cant wait to find out what it is. “Assassin’s Creed”From video game to the big screen, with Michael Fassbender. It has to be better than last summers Warcraft,Ž right?“Silence”Martin Scorseses latest stars Adam Driver and Andrew Garfield as 17th centu-ry priests who travel to Japan to find their mentor (Liam Neeson) and spread Chris-tianity. If I need to write more, you dont love movies. Limited release; expanding in January. “Why Him?”Bryan Cranston seems back in Malcolm in the MiddleŽ mode as the belea-guered father who despises the rich scum-bag (James Franco) his daughter is dating. Please dont let it be as insufferable as it looks.“A Monster Calls”Potentially depressing story based on the novel of the same name by Patrick Ness (who also adapted the screenplay) about a tree monster that helps a boy whose mother has a terminal illness. Lim-ited release; expanding Jan. 6. December 25“Hidden Figures” The story of three African-American women at NASA „ Katherine G. John-son (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Mone) „ who were instrumen-tal in the success of astronaut John Glenn launching into orbit and circling the Earth in 1962. Let this count as more proof of how successful minority women can be in a white mans world when given the chance. Limited release; expanding in January. “Gold” Matthew McConaughey stars as a man who strikes gold and becomes filthy rich, but doesnt exactly live happily ever after. McConaughey, balding and pudgy, chews scenery from the big city to the jungle here, and the premise is interesting. “20th Century Women”In 1970s Los Angeles, three generations of women (Annette Bening, Elle Fanning, Greta Gerwig) help a teenage boy (Lucas Jade Zumann) learn how to be a man. Lim-ited release; expanding in January. December 30“Live by Night” Ben Affleck is a phenomenal director (Argo,Ž Gone Baby GoneŽ), so we will watch this Prohibition-era story of gang-sters and good guys with great optimism. It has a bit of a GoodfellasŽ feel to it in terms of the main character coming from nothing and loving the mafia life. Limited release; expanding nationwide Jan. 13. Q MOVIESFrom page 1 “Manchester by the Sea” (Dec. 9)“Sing” (Dec. 21)“Allied” (Nov. 23)“Moana” (Nov. 23) “Passengers” ( Dec. 23)

This means the usually bargain-oblivious Sagittarian should look for ways to save on end-of-the-year holidays. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Examine the facts, and you might find that its a wiser move to shift gears and redirect some of your goals before the end of the year. Someone close to you offers good advice. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Be careful that your generosity is not abused. Find out more, both about the special favors you might be asked to grant and who is asking for them. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Youve come through a recent rough time in great shape. Congratu-lations. Now go out and enjoy your well-earned rewards. More good news comes in mid-December. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your curiosity might not be appreci-ated by everyone. Expect some resis-tance in getting answers to your ques-tions. But stay with it. You need facts in order to make important decisions. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Some of the mystery surrounding your recent fiscal situation soon will be dispelled with a clear explanation. Use this new knowledge to help you chart a fresh financial course. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Start your Hanukkah and Christmas gift-buying now. This will help avoid problems caused by possible mid-December delays. A family member has important information. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Use a little more sense in how you plan to spend your end-of-the-year holi-day dollars. Meanwhile, you continue to gain support for your stand on a workplace issue. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Wearing that big, loving Lions heart of yours on your sleeve leaves it unprotected. Let things develop a little more before you allow your emotions to spill over. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to September 22) You might feel youre not ready to patch up an unraveled relationship. But the longer you wait, the more dif-ficult it will be for all parties to take the first healing step. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your end-of-the-year holiday plans could be disrupted by some-thing out of your control, but stay the course. Ultimately, things will settle back into a normal pace. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your honest approach to a workplace project earns you both respect and credit from those in charge. Meanwhile, that personal problem still needs to be dealt with. BORN THIS WEEK: You aim for truth, and you usually find it. Your honesty earns you the friendship and respect of others.

The Palm Beach branch will go into the Royal Poinciana Plaza Serving Milanese-style dishes, the lunch and dinner menus have a mix of antipasti, sal-ads, pastas, and entrees. In a news release, the chef, Marco Barbisotti said there will be a focus on seafood and fresh cit-rus at the Palm Beach branch „ a nod to their new South Florida home. Along with meal service, lighter bites will be served at the coffee bar, caf, and fresh gelato will be available at the gelateria on site. The 5,973-square-foot restaurant, seating around 170, took over the space once occupied by Del Frisco Grille which closed last fall. Concerns about parking arose in the spring with Town Council questioning if there would be enough. The Royal Palm Playhouse has legal rights to much of the parking in the plaza, and with the restaurant serving all day through din-ner, vehicle spaces could be limited. But the council approved two different applications from the restaurant to allow it to open. A Dec. 14 opening is planned.Sant Ambroeus, 340 Royal Poinciana Way, Palm Beach; Small Business Saturday eventAn anti-Black FridayŽ event to celebrate small businesses is organized nationwide for Saturday, Nov. 26.

Alexanders, 4625 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens; 694-2711 or The Price: $15 The Details: OK, friends, if you look in the dictionary under artery-clogging goodness,Ž you will see an engraving of this sandwich. Just kidding, of course. But the components of the Steak Burger are what make a burger great: A blend of perfectly cooked ground beef tender-loin and ribeye thats topped with Til-lamook cheddar and grilled onions and slathered with the restaurants creamy Kiawah Island dressing. Its served on a perfectly toasted roll. Need we say more? Q „ Sc ott Simmons As sommelier at Cit y Cellar, Gradon Thibeault has to taste at least a little bit of wine every day. Lucky fellow. He had to familiarize himself with the 500 wines producers and vintages available from the restaurants curated wine list. But he doesnt have to worry about overindulg-ing or hangovers. Theres a lot of spitting going on (in tastings),Ž says Mr. Thibeault, a level 2 sommelier. Wine isnt his only specialty. Mr. Thibeault also is a fromagier working toward his certification. He pairs wines with cheeses, both domestic and import-ed, from all over the world. In Maine, where Thibeault grew up, there are a lot of good cheeses and he enjoyed snacking on them. But he didnt become passionate about cheese until he began working in New York restaurants known for pairing cheeses with wines. He worked at Hotel Griffou in New York and at Casullulain in Hells Kitchen. As an expert at pairing national and internationally sourced cheese with wine based on seasonal availability, Mr. Thibeaults favorite is Brebis Rousse, a soft sheepmilk cheese from France. He doesnt name a favorite wine, but favors wine from two regions: Alto Adige in northern Italy and Burgundy in France. Working with Executive Chef Kevin Darr at City Cellar, Mr. Thibeault is help-ing to train the staff on the nuances of texture, flavor, taste and the personality of cheese selections. Customers who know little to nothing about wines or cheeses or pairing the two need not fret about what to order. I can figure their flavor profile and suggest a wine and cheese,Ž Mr. Thi-beault said. I never go crazy with price and wine can be ordered by the glass.Ž When he arrived at the restaurant three months ago, he found the wine list to be California-centric. Since then, hes brought in Old World wines to round out the selections. He also creates cocktails and does some cooking, as well. Mr. Thibeault worked his way through college by bartending and dropped out of medical school after the first year because he found it too costly. He fell back on bartending and working in wine bars and was exposed to 1,200 different cheeses one year at Casullula. Mr. Thibeault, who is single and lives in West Palm Beach, came down to inter-view and discovered his friend was right. He fits right in at City Cellar and enjoys working with Chef Darr. Cheese is becoming a very big thing here,Ž he said. It has been big in New York for five years. Im very good at identifying cheeses based on texture and taste.Ž Mr. Thibeault has a tip for those who want to learn about wine. Read Wine for Dummies,Ž he said. You can pass the level 1 sommelier exam after you read it.Ž Now theres a tip worth toasting!Gradon ThibeaultAge: 27 Original hometown: Portland, Maine Restaurant: City Cellar Wine Bar & Grill at CityPlace in West Palm Beach. 820-0074 or Mission: To make the menu a little more well-rounded and appealing to dif-ferent age groups and to make the wine and cheese experience fun and diverse. Cuisine: Mr. Thibeault creates custom board plates that are artistically pre-sented with cured meats, cheeses and accompaniments. Training: Self-taught. Worked in the food industry since he was 15. Was a bartender in college. Worked at vari-ous wine bars. A level 2 sommelier and working toward fromagier certification. Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? Im on the floor all the time talking to customers so I have to wear nice shoes. I like Cole Haan Nike Air shoes. What advice would you give someone who wants to be a sommelier/fromagier? Start at the bottom and work up. Dont be afraid to ask questions. Learn from the professionals you work with.
