Call 844-447-4687 or visit leslie COMMENTARY Minority reportJustice is on trial in South Carolina. Two high-profile murder cases are before the courts. They both resurrect the fact and memory of racial animus at the heart of the states historic past. Michael Slager, a white former police officer, went on trial for murder. He shot Walter F. Scott five times in the back. Scott was black and unarmed. He was running away from Slager after a routine traffic stop. The ghastly scene was caught on video by a bystander. It was a pitiless execution. On hearing the testimony, the jury was sequestered for more than 20 hours. It announced to the judge it was dead-locked. One or more jurors said they could not in good conscienceŽ find Slager guilty of murder or a lesser charge of manslaughter. History weighed heavily on the o utcome. The outc ome weighed heavily on racial justice. A mistrial was declared. The odyssey of pain continues. The same week, jury selection began in Charleston for the trial of Dylann S. Roof, the 22-year-old white suprema-cist accused of murdering nine African-Americans attending a prayer meeting in the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Following the murders, South Carolinas State Legislature removed the Con-federate flag from the grounds of the state capitol. It was a conciliatory gesture, made only after the grace of the victims families put the lawmakers to shame. But reconciliation was short-lived. The repudiation of the Confederate flag as a racist symbol did not deal a mortal wound to white supremacy. If there was an epiphany of conscience in the months that followed, it was that the racial divide was growing worse. If you are African-American, you have few expectations justice will be served in South Carolina or anywhere else. Alan Blinder of The New York Times interviewed multiple locals about the pos-sible outcomes of the trials, including Rev. Joseph A Darby, a presiding elder in the Beaufort A.M.E Church. Said Darby, I dont think anybodys expecting that bells will ring, and angels will sing and sud-denly the walls of race will fall. For some idiots, the walls will get a little stronger.Ž The reverends skepticism is warranted. President-elect Trump puts an excla-mation point on the worry that the idiots are ascendant. The peoples court ignores the evidence. Of the thousands of the Clinton e-mails leaked during the presidential campaign, some of the most revelatory were writ-ten by a retired four-star general, Colin Powell. Powell served as secretary of state under President George W. Bush. He left an unhappy man, duped into parroting bogus intelligence that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. Now retired from public service, he is seldom seen or heard except by his own command. But the news of his leaked e-mails went front page. Powells mes-sages disclosed, among other things, his uncensored opinion of Trump and Clin-ton, neither of whom won his enthusiasm. Of Hillary, he wrote: Everything HRC touches she kind of screws up with hubris.Ž Meanwhile, Clinton rather proved his point, suggesting Powell coached her in the e-mail practices that caused her so much grief. But his most damning remarks were reserved for Trump. Powell said Trump was a national disgrace and an interna-tional pariah.Ž And of Trumps birther prattle? Flatly racist, said Powell. He added, When Trump couldnt keep that up, Trump also wanted to see if the certificate noted that he (Obama) was a Muslim.Ž Trump sniffed in reply. He said he never thought much of Powell anyway, his narcissism on full display. Powell is an officer and a gentleman, proven worthy of an enemys respect. He is the son of impoverished Jamaican immigrants. He graduated from a public university, served 35 years in the U.S. Army and worked his way up the ladder to become a four-star general, the highest rank ever held by an African-American in the U.S. military. He oversaw the Persian Gulf War, was award-ed the Congressional Gold Medal and served as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the most powerful military post on the planet. Powell knows a thing or two about character, integrity, country and the calumny of hate. In 1994, he gave a commencement address at Howard University following a speech delivered weeks earlier by one of Louis Farrakhans top lieutenants, who spoke on the sins of white people and the alleged evils of Jewish Americans.Ž Powell lambasted the racist pitch, warn-ing the young graduates, As the world goes forward, we cannot start going back-ward ƒ or take a detour into the swamp of hatred.ƒ I want you to fight racism. But remember, as Dr. King and Dr. Mandela have taught us, racism is the disease of the racistƒ Let racism always be someone elses burden to carry.Ž The jury is still out on who carries the burden of racism in America. But if we declare innocent those who are guilty, all suffer the injustice. And, just so you know, Powell voted for Clinton. Would that the majority of American voters had done the same! Oh, thats right. They did. Q „ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian. Her professional career spans more than 25 years leading major philanthropic institutions in the South and Appalachia.

The country cant function without leaders and their staffs, or without a trans-fer not just of power but of knowledge, which is power, weve been told. Mr. Trump knows that, of course „ hes very, very smart „ and I suspect he also recognizes this obvious truth: Without good people doing the work of govern-ment starting day one (Jan. 20), he wont have any spare time to get back to his reality show, Apprentice,Ž or carry on with his campaign rallies. No doubt its important in his mind to start rallying the base for the 2020 election. The transfer of power is always a fascinating moment in American political history, chock-full of behind-the-scenes drama we rarely see. One leader and his or her lieutenants have to smile and turn over the keys and computers to another leader and his or her lieutenants. Only then can members of the departing team go home, withdraw to a private bathroom, and retch for the rest of the afternoon. Secretary of State John Kerry, for example, will have to sit down with his succes-sor, Beelzebub, and explain in civil tones whats going on in the Foreign Service, the Civil Service, the dining service, the laun-dry service and the limousine service, all of which fall under the aegis of the Depart-ment of State. Oh, and the U.S. Agency for International Development, as well. That agency, however, will likely be renamed the U.S. Agency for International Irrel-evance, so it wont matter to Beelzebub. No doubt the conversation will go something like this: Kerry: Hey Bubba, come on in. How you doin? Beelzebub: Good, John. Listen, I know this is difficult for you and I dont want to take a lot of your time. Just show me where the red button is, and you can get going. Kerry: Im sorry, Bub, I dont have access to the red b utton. That s not this office. Thats over in the Situation Room of the White House beneath the West Wing. Beelzebub: Oh yeah „ in the basement where they used to have the swimming pool, right? The one where I introduced Marilyn to JFK ƒ those were good times. Unfortunately, I prefer bad times or bet-ter yet, end times. Listen, John, is there anything I could do for you on your way out? Get you a small dictatorship in the Caribbean with hot dancing girls and old muscle cars? Or maybe nuke a North African country? Sink a swift boater or two? Anything? Kerry: No thanks, Bubba, Im good. And good luck. Or bad luck, as the case may be. Beelzebub: Thats SECRETARY Bubba, and thanks, Johnny boy ƒ Mr. Trump has picked some of the finest talent the country has to offer to lead the other departments too, not just the State Department. Hes got Abaddon for Interior, Apollyon for Defense, Tempter for Commerce and so on. He cant bring in Lucifer because hes already running Russia, murdering journalists or dissenters he doesnt like, making lists of professors who ask too many questions, that kind of thing. These are the best in their fields, and I think we have to give them a chance. All Americans should now keep in mind: The world is watching us, taking its cue from us, especially in Western Europe. We have to behave responsibly. Its one thing when the British pull out of the European Union „ everybody knows the British are not merely eccen-tric, theyre crazy. So nobody pays too much attention. Scientific research and anecdote both suggest they took too much sun marching around Afghanistan or the Punjab in the 19th century and theyve never entirely recovered. But when much more sensible and levelheaded nations start modeling their sup-port of new populist leaders on ours, we have to tread carefully. Take Holland, where Geert Wilders, the head of the far-right Party for Freedom and a top prospect for prime minister in next years elections, says the North Africans in his country and in Europe are about to ruin contemporary culture and bring down the 2,000-year civilization that created it. Its the Moroccan Muslims in particular he objects to, calling for a reduction in their numbers: about 2.2 percent of the 17 million who inhabit the Netherlands, or 374,000. Thats roughly the population of Collier County, Fla. Ill tell you, they must be some very tough Muslims. It probably gets almost as crazy on a Saturday night in Hol-land as it does in Immokalee or east Bonita Springs or West Palm Beach or downtown Port Charlotte on a Saturday night. For inspiration and leadership cues, Mr. Wilders traveled to the Republican National Convention in August to watch his pal, Mr. Trump, win the nomination. He was not disappointed, unlike a majority of American voters, some of whom have taken to calling Mr. Trump not the presi-dent-elect, but the president-electoral. How the Dutch will react to Mr. Wilders at the polls depends in part, perhaps, on how well we behave ourselves „ on Mr. Trumps new cabinet heads succeeding or failing in the exercise of their talents. All of Europe could follow our example. Notice, the Dutch have not suggested building any walls to keep out immi-grants, like Mr. Trump promises to do here. Maybe thats because theyre better at building dikes. I wish theyd come over here and build a decent dike around Lake Okeechobee, since nobody else seems to be able to do the job. Perhaps this is an opportunity for trade. Mr. Trump can trade the Dutch and his pal, Mr. Wilders, a wall for a dike. I dont know what that would do for the Dutch, but it would sure help us. Q roger To kill a pipelineOne of the Obama administrations core competencies is suspending pipe-line projects with no cause. It will leave office with another notch in its belt, now that the Army Corps of Engineers has acted to block a final piece of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The 1,200-mile pipeline is designed to move oil from North Dakota to Illinois and will have to await completion in a Trump administration with a more rational attitude toward pipelines spe-cifically and fossil fuels generally. The story of the Dakota Access Pipeline will be familiar to anyone who followed the controversy over the Key-stone XL pipeline. As with Keystone, the builders of the pipeline have taken years to dutifully check every environ-mental and bureaucratic box, only to get stymied when protesters „ this time a Native American tribe „ made the proj-ect a hate totem for the left. The protests have been led by the Standing Rock Sioux tribe of North Dakota. The tribe alleges that the Dako-ta Access project will trample on cultur-ally sensitive sites and taint its drinking water, without much in the way of sup-porting evidence. The dispute centers around the pipelines planned crossing of the Missouri River at Lake Oahe. This isnt exactly virgin territory. Around the lake, the pipeline will run within 22 to 300 feet of the existing Northern Border Gas Pipe-line, which has been in service since 1982 and hasnt devastated the Stand-ing Rock tribe. The pipeline also tracks with an overhead utility line. A decision by a federal judge in September to reject a bid by the Standing Rock tribe to block the pipeline cata-loged how deliberate the developers of Dakota Access have been about cultur-ally sensitive sites. According to the opinion, the company found 149 poten-tially sensitive sites in its own surveying in North Dakota. It modified the route to avoid 140 of them and came up with a plan with the state of North Dakota to limit any effect on the other nine. Throughout most of this process, representatives of the Standing Rock tribe were notably absent. When the Army Corps invited them to a general meet-ing to discuss the pipeline in November 2015, five tribes attended, but not Stand-ing Rock. In the spring of 2016, the Corps invited tribes to conduct their own cultural surveys at locations around the route. Three tribes participated; Standing Rock did not. The tribal surveys identi-fied additional sites of concern, where Dakota Access duly agreed to take addi-tional protective measures. There is no real defense, though, against protesters staging cable-TV-ready disturbances against a project and making it a cause celebre. For the overwhelming majority of its route, the Dakota Access pipeline requires no permitting, since it traverses private land. Its the tiny percent that would affect waterways that made it subject to federal approval, and thus to political hostage-taking. For the left, Dakota Access is a symbol. In reality, it is simply a means of moving half a million barrels of crude oil a day from Point A to Point B, an activity that shouldnt be considered dastardly or untoward. Fortunately for Dakota Access, and everyone else in the energy industry, help is on the way. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly

Proceeds ben-efit the West Palm Beach Fishing Clubs conservation and edu-cation initiatives. The event was established in 1935, and is recognized as the worlds old-est sailfish tourna-ment, attracting the best sailfish anglers, captains and crews in the sport. The tourna-ment is expected to draw 40 boats, with 200 anglers vying for some of sail-fishings most prestigious awards. Anchored in tradition, many derby awards are sponsored by families who have been associated with the event for decades. Q The derbys top angler award is the Mrs. Henry R. Rea trophy, a silver sailfish sculpture that dates back to the events origins. Henry Rea was a West Palm Beach Fishing Club supporter and seasonal resident of Palm Beach who underwrote the trophy to honor his wife. The Rea Trophy remains one of the most coveted trophies in all of angling. Q The Top Lady Angler trophy is sponsored by the Hampp Family in memory of Rose Hampp, who earned numerous angling awards in her career in addition to this, won in the 1957 derby. Q The Louis S. Boski award for Out-standing Angling Achievement honors the late Lou Boski, a West Palm Beach Fishing Club member who set the record for 83 Atlantic sailfish single-day catches and releases in 1980. Other prizes include the Top Small Boat trophy, Top Tag Team, daily angler and boat awards, and over-all boat and angler awards.

The Thornton dogs favor treats above all else. A personalized item is thoughtful, too,Ž Mikkel adds, such as a bed, col-lar or bowl, or breed-specific items like calendars, cards or stationery.Ž Do the person and dog participate in a sport? A supply of dog treats or a new treat bag will be appreciated. For the pet and pet lover who have everything, make a donation to a pet charity in his or her name. A cou-ple of our favorites are World Vets ( and The Grey Muzzle Organization ( Is it OK to bring my pet to the family holiday gathering? Always ask first, and respect the response, even if its nega-tive. Not everyone loves pets as much as we do, and some people suffer from allergies or animal-related phobias. If you must bring your pet, plan to stay in a hotel, and consider your pet a good excuse to go take a walk or have some down time to yourself. Should I get my family a pet for Christmas? There used to be a senti-ment that it was a bad idea to get pets during the holidays, but if done right, it can be a joyful experience. Studies show that pets given as gifts are just as likely to stay in homes and are just as well loved as animals acquired at other times or in other ways. Any time someone is considering bringing an animal into a home, they should be mindful of the commitment and give thought to what type of pet will be best for the family and lifestyle,Ž says Kristi Littrell, adoption manager for Best Friends Animal Society. If you have time off during the holidays, that can be a good opportunity to spend time with and start training a new pet. If thats not an option, pres-ent your family with a gift card or cer-tificate from your local animal shelter, rescue group or a reputable breeder. Then you can all go choose your pet together when the time is right.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF DECEMBER 15-21, 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLYsioners approved the Imperiled Species Management Plan, which had been in the works since 2010. They also created 13 new Critical Wildlife Areas throughout the state and renewed five others, the largest num-ber established at one time in nearly three decades. CWAs restrict access around certain islands to keep people from bothering vul-nerable shore and wading birds during their breeding pro-cess. We have a responsibility to maintain Florida wildlife not just for peoples enjoy-ment today but for future generations,Ž said Kipp Frohlich, deputy director for FWCs Division of Habitat and Spe-cies Conservation. The support for both the Imperiled Species Manage-ment Plan and establishment of the new Critical Wildlife Areas was over-whelming, so I think it really speaks to the will of Floridians, that they value their wildlife resources.Ž The Imperiled Species Plan is meant to help protect creatures that are offi-cially designated as state threatened species but are lesser known or have fewer protections. The Florida panther, for instance, a federally endangered spe-cies, isnt on the list. Many of the 57 are found only in certain regions or even on a single island, such as the Sanibel Island rice rat. The plan will provide a framework including recommendations and guidelines for how to protect each species. Its a refocus on state-listed species which maybe havent received as much attention or care in the past, but are very important to our biodiversity and also are struggling to recover,Ž said Amber Crooks, senior environmental policy specialist with the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. Just some the threatened species to be protected under the plan include: Q The Georgia blind salamander, a northwestern Florida native. Q Alligator snapping turtles found in the Panhandle, one of the largest fresh-water turtles in the world. Q The Florida bonneted bat, found only in Dade, Monroe, Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties. (Their name comes from their large, broad ears that slant over their eyes). Q And of course, burrowing owls, which have their highest concentrations in Lee, Broward and Palm Beach coun-ties, in that order. Our hope is that owls displaced because of development could be better protected in the future,Ž said Kelly Hef-fernan, director of South Florida Audu-bons Project Perch, which has part-nered with Palm Beach County schools and others to protect the owls in urban areas. Unlike wading birds protected by CWAs, the owls look for high ground to make their homes in places such as undeveloped lots or golf courses. While the Imperiled Species Plan will offer guidelines for how to protect this spe-cies and others, they in part depend on buy in from local communities. The nonprofit work that Project Perch does to protect the owls relies on volunteers and is generally not covered by developers or landowners, Ms. Hef-fernan pointed out. So wed like to see some conservation efforts be included when they develop these areas to protect the owls,Ž she said.CREATURESFrom page 1The Imperiled Species Management Plan is a capstone on five years of work developing the plan, and over a decade of revising the listing process. In the plan, the details of conserving each of Floridas 57 imperiled species are coupled with the broader approach of restoring habitats and addressing other large-scale issues essential to the long-term survival of multiple fish and wildlife species. Our charismatic species get a lot of attention, but the animals covered by this Imperiled Species Management Plan need attention too,Ž said FWC Commissioner Chuck Roberts. All of these species are very important to long-term resource management here in Florida.Ž After adopting a new conservation model in 2010 that requires a manage-ment plan for imperiled species, the FWC embarked upon a process of col-laboration with stakeholders and the public. Three drafts of the plan were presented for review, generating hun-dreds of comments on each draft, and leading to changes in the plan. Experts from outside the FWC also partici-pated in Biological Status Reviews that evaluated which fish and wildlife spe-cies should be designated as imperiled. The Imperiled Species Management Plan addresses a diversity of imperiled species, from the reddish egret to the Florida bog frog, Bar-bours map turtle and bluenose shin-er,Ž said Brad Gruver, who leads the agencys Species Conservation Plan-ning section. In the past, we suc-cessfully used management plans for individual species like the bald eagle and manatee. With this plan, we take into account what imperiled species have in common, such as the need for us to improve what we know about them and to better coordinate how we manage multiple species.Ž While the biologists who developed this 10-year plan are responsible for its implementation, the public is encour-aged to step into key roles. Citizen-scientists can volunteer to help survey wildlife and collect data. Private land-owners can conserve imperiled spe-cies on their property. Schools, busi-nesses, organizations and individuals can become informal educators. We have been involved in the effort to revise Floridas imperiled species listing process and management sys-tem since the very beginning,Ž said Elizabeth Fleming, senior Florida rep-resentative, Defenders of Wildlife. We are extremely pleased to see the adoption of a comprehensive imper-iled species management plan and associated rules. Now the important work of implementing these important conservation measures can begin.Ž Important things to know about the Imperiled Species Management Plan: Q It includes one-page summaries for each species, including a map of its range in Florida and online links to Species Action Plans. The 49 Species Action Plans contain specific conser-vation goals, objectives and actions for all 57 imperiled species. Q It also has Integrated Conservation Strategies that benefit multiple species and their habitats, and focus implementation of the plan on areas and issues that yield the greatest con-servation benefit for the greatest num-ber of species. Q It highlights conservation success with 15 species that are being removed from the list of imperiled species but are still being monitored and con-served under the plan. What are the 57 fish and wildlife species in the plan? Q Eight mammals: Big Cypress fox squirrel, eastern chipmunk*, Everglades mink, Florida mouse*, Homosassa shrew, Sanibel rice rat, Shermans fox squirrel and Shermans short-tailed shrew. Q 21 birds: American oystercatcher, black skimmer, brown pelican*, Flor-ida burrowing owl, Florida sandhill crane, least tern, limpkin*, little blue heron, Marians marsh wren, osprey (Monroe County population), reddish egret, roseate spoonbill, Scotts seaside sparrow, snowy egret*, snowy plover, southeastern American kestrel, tricol-ored heron, Wakulla seaside sparrow, white ibis*, white-crowned pigeon and Worthingtons marsh wren. Q 12 reptiles: alligator snapping turtle, Barbours map turtle, Florida brown snake (Lower Keys population), Florida Keys mole skink, Florida pine snake, Key ringneck snake, peninsu-la ribbon snake* (Lower Keys popu-lation), red rat snake* (Lower Keys population), rim rock crowned snake, short-tailed snake, striped mud turtle* (Lower Keys population) and Suwan-nee cooter*. Q Four amphibians: Florida bog frog, Georgia blind salamander, gopher frog* and Pine Barrens treefrog*. Q Nine fish: blackmouth shiner, bluenose shiner, crystal darter, har-lequin darter, Lake Eustis pupfish*, key silverside, mangrove rivulus*, salt-marsh topminnow and southeastern tessellated darter. Q Three invertebrates: Black Creek crayfish, Florida tree snail* and Santa Fe crayfish As to the listing status of all the plans 57 species, 14 were listed as state Threatened prior to the plan and will remain listed as state Threatened; 23 will change listing from Species of Special Concern to state Threatened; five will remain Species of Special Concern; and 15 will be removed from the imperiled species list. Rule changes associated with implementing the plan are anticipated to take effect this month. Learn more about the plan at www.

They are aimed at protecting vulnerable shore and wad-ing birds from human disturbance dur-ing their breeding process and when feeding or migrating. Its extremely exciting, unprecedented and fantastic news for birds, for habitat and for the people of Flor-ida,Ž said Doug Young with the South Florida Audubon Society. The CWAs are certain small islands or pieces of land to which public access is illegal for all or part of a year. FWC created 13 new CWAs around the state and re-established five oth-ers in Lee, Collier, Sarasota, Brevard, Franklin, Citrus, Duval, Nassau, Hills-borough and Manatee counties. (They) will serve as wildlife conservation hubs „ places that function as nurseries and feeding stations for signature Florida species,Ž said FWC Chairman Brian Yablonski in a state-ment. These small areas will have a huge impact on our vulnerable bird and wildlife populations, such as red-dish egrets, roseate spoonbills and oystercatchers.Ž The new restricted areas may have downsides for anglers, though. The new regulations dont help on top of a year in which water releases from Lake Okeechobee hurt business for many guides, said Capt. Richard LeRoy „ although he added that since most of his charters are in Charlotte Harbor and Boca Grande Pass, they probably wont affect his business much. I just believe our waters are already regulated enough,Ž he said. You put regulations where people can fish and cant fish, I dont think thats right.Ž Even in Pine Island Sound in Lee County, where FWC established more restricted areas than in any other part of the state, Matlacha native and fishing guide Capt. Bill Russell isnt worried it will hurt his business. It just changes the way you fish a little bit,Ž he said. Still, hes not in favor of the CWAs restricting Broken Islands, Useppa Oys-ter Bar and Hemp Key that includes about 25 acres of uplands and 31 acres of water. Hemp Key, near the middle of the Sound, has a handful of sandholes where people like to fish for snook and redfish, he noted. Even so, he said he spotted an unusual sight there recently, what he estimated to be as many as 1,000 white pelicans roosting. The birds on those islands have been there for a long time,Ž he said. They seem to be doing just fine on the island.Ž Overall, FWCs Mr. Frohlich points out, the restricted areas are a relatively tiny fraction of the space available for fishing and boating. Statewide they make up about 200 acres of upland and 180 acres of water that will be closed seasonally or year-round to protect more than two dozen species of birds with declining populations. Little blue and tricolored herons, for instance, have lost at least 30 percent of their population size in the last 36 years, FWC says. Overall, I think its going to be a long-term benefit for tourism and eco-tourism and conservation,Ž Mr. Frohlich said. People come from all over the world to see our bird life as well as enjoy our world-class fishing, so I think its going to be a win win.Ž To obtain public input on proposals to establish the CWAs, more than 400 people attended 14 workshops held throughout the state. The FWC used the input to improve the initial CWA proposals. Much of our support is based on the trust we have built with the FWC,Ž said Brett Fitzgerald, executive director of the Snook and Gamefish Foundation, in a press release. We trust the FWC to do things which benefit the resource and the people.Ž Q Critical Wildlife Areas The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission has established 13 new Critical Wildlife Areas and identified five existing CWAs which require re-establishment (a change in boundary or closure dates).

As chairman, Mrs. Brown was rec-ognized for gaining publicity for the agencys work through appearances on the TodayŽ show and other national media, for revitalizing the agency and for demonstrating outstanding com-mitment, caring and concern for the safety of families. She was vice president of the Consumer Federation of America for 15 years and chairman of the board of the consumer advocacy group Public Voice. But today, much of her time is devoted to supporting and enjoying the JCC. I play bridge at the JCC, just one of their wonderful program for older residents, which also include great continuing education programs and The Silver Sneakers, a fitness program for older adults,Ž she said. The Mandel JCC has more than 2,000 Silver Sneakers members, with 14 classes offered each week. The organization also offers Parkinson support groups, she said. Other causes near and dear to her include The Lords Place, where she serves on the board to help the home-less. Shes also on the board of El Sol in Jupiter, helping those who are new to America. She is one of the founding trustees of the Jewish Womens Foundation. The arts are also a passion so we (she and her husband, Don) are very involved with Palm Beach Drama-works, helping to reinvigorate down-town West Palm Beach,Ž she said. The theater at Palm Beach Dramaworks is named for Ms. Brown and her hus-band. Married for 58 years, Mrs. Brown said her secret to a long, healthy life is concentrating on helping others. The more I can do for others, the better I feel about myself,Ž she said. Im happier being as helpful as I can be.Ž She and her husband have two daughters, Kathy and Laura; four grandchildren and one great-grandson. Even our dog, Rosebud, is called to help others,Ž she said. He brings in our two newspapers every morning before I feed him.Ž The 10-year-old black lab is a service dog that visits people in the hospital. QQQAnn Brown € Age: 79 € Where I grew up: Born in Philadelphia and grew up in Washington, D.C., where my parents owned and operated a clothing store. My mother worked as the buyer for the business, so I had a working mom as my role model. € Where I live now: Palm Beach Gardens and Washington, D.C. € Education: Went to public school for six years and then attended Sidwell Friends School in D.C. and then Smith College for three years and got mar-ried and finished my degree at George Washington University. € What brought me to Florida: My husband has had health problems, so it is better for his health to live here in the winters. We purchased a home here in 1993, but started living here seasonally in 2001. € My first job and what it taught me: My first job out of college was to work for the assistant Washing-ton correspondent for The New York Post, a liberal newspaper of the time. I learned to do everything, including how to spur social action. I saw the whole political world and learned how to get things done. € A career highlight: Serving as the chairman of the U.S. Product Safety Commission for nearly eight years during the administration of President Bill Clinton. I started as a volunteer with consumer groups 20 years ear-lier and did all kinds of consumer awareness, especially with toys and childrens product safety. I used to be known as the mother of toy safety, now Im known as the grandmother of toy safety. € Hobbies: Playing bridge and tennis and going to movies in movie theaters. I also love live theater and Broadway musicals. My newest hobby is playing pickle ball. € Best advice for someone looking to succeed: First of all, self educate. Dont go into a field on a wing and a prayer. Work hard, even if you are a volunteer, and do the very best you can to help people. € About mentors: My mentor was Esther Peterson, a great consumer advocate. I was out picketing in my early days as an activist and Esther took me to lunch and told me its just as easy to attract bees with honey as it is with vinegar.

Once the staple of corporate America, business gift giving has made a come-back since the recession, although most companies are forgoing extravaganza and putting more thought into showing customers appreciation. You dont want to be lavish,Ž said Jacqueline Whitmore, an international eti-quette expert, author and speaker who works with many Palm Beach County business owners. It can be as extreme-ly simple as giving a coffee card with a note saying, Thanks a latte for your business or something you know your client collects. In my travels, Im always finding unique gifts.Ž Theres a fine line between appreciation and bribery. And regulations on certain industries max out annual gifts. By law, Gary Crisci, managing principal at Crisci Private Wealth Man-agement in Naples, can spend only $100 per client per year. During his 27 years in the busi-ness, including the last 11 in Naples, hes always sent holiday gifts. Historically you sent chocolates, “Historically you sent chocolates, cookies or something like that ... A lot of my clients were commenting that they didn’t care for the cookies because they were watching their health.” — Gary Crisci managing principal at Crisci Private Wealth Management in NaplesHoliday giftingWhy giving thought makes sense/cents for businesses SEE GIFTING, A20 uCOURTESY PHOTOGifts for clients and customers can be tricky but we have a few tips this season.WHITMORE


A20 BUSINESS WEEK OF DECEMBER 15-21, 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLYcookies or something like that,Ž he said A lot of my clients were comment-ing that they didnt care for the cook-ies because they were watching their health.Ž So what do you give the client who has everything? Six years ago, Mr. Crisci started donating $100 per client to local charities. They receive cards noting the recipient nonprofits, website links and a promise of client confidentiality. I probably give more now than I did before the recession,Ž he said. Its a win-win for everyone and makes more sense. Im very fortunate to have great clients who are already very involved in the community. They want to give back and prefer to think of people less fortu-nate. If you have, say, 80 clients you can give a lot of money.Ž When dealing with high-worth individuals or the customer who has every-thing, choose a gift for their pet or their children, Ms. Whitmore suggested. Or take them to lunch or dinner. Because of the internet, most businesspeople are not spending as much face-to-face time with their clients,Ž she said. Holiday gift giving is a way to recognize top customers and share your appreciation. As adults, not many people say thank you to us,Ž said Patti Guerzo, founder of Guerzo Business Consulting in Port Charlotte. The value of loyal customers is really important. Every-body likes to feel theyre appreciated.Ž There are different reasons for holiday gifts,Ž said Sherri Hynden, the matriarch of the family-run Flint Finan-cial Group at USB in Fort Myers. From our viewpoint, we want to give back and let clients know theyre special to us, we care about them, are thinking of them, and that our appreciation of our relation-ship goes beyond the financial. We try to give clients practi-cal gifts like fresh fruits, sweets, muf-fins or nuts but you have to know if theyre diabetic, put thought into the gift and be sensitive to their needs.Ž Budgets and business histories often make it prohibitive for businesses with an expansive client base to send a gift to everyone. Consultants and etiquette experts said its best to make a tiered list of top clients and gift accordingly. Theres no percentage rule or magic formula to deter-mine what you should spend. Some rules apply and you have to be a little more dis-cerning when giving outside the office,Ž said Ms. Whitmore. Most businesses can accept food and its always a great gift. Id stay away from alcohol unless you know a client loves a certain type of alcohol.Ž Businesses also have to factor in the costs of an employee wrapping or pre-paring gifts, signing cards and shipping, noted Ms. Guerzo. You cant buy for every single client,Ž Ms. Whitmore said. Its just not reasonable. You have to consider those who make your life easier or your most valu-able clients, your brea d and b utter. Some of the best gifts are well thought out and dont cost much.Ž Ten years ago, every business would send 100 gift baskets that were all the same,Ž said Shelly Pryor Aris-tizabal, founder of Neapolitan Con-sultants in Naples. Thats not happening anymore, but holiday giving is a conversation every business should have. Some companies have just a few clients and can put more thought into it. Others have prospects they want to impress or create loyalty. Lets face it: Most businesses are doing this as an act of goodwill but also to get more business and keep their name in front of people. It has the potential for people thinking about your brand.ŽPay attention, get personalPersonal and thoughtful gifts are most meaningful „ just dont bestow jew-elry or other gifts that could be miscon-strued as crossing the professional line. You want to stay away from intimate gifts like jewelry or flowers,Ž said Ms. Whitmore. I always try to give gifts that are made in my hometown like Florida marmalade or Key lime cookies. It makes the gift more special and you can tailor it to your clients personality.Ž She even works with Florida Weeklys Scott Simmons, editor of the Palm Beach Gardens/Jupiter and West Palm Beach/Palm Beach editions. Hes also known for his antique collections, and he sources American-made Lenox tea-cups for her overseas clients. Before I travel, I try to find something in Scotts collection,Ž Ms. Whit-more said. I like to give clients Lenox teacups because its so hard to find American-made china. Lenox is also the official china of the White House and people really like that. I might pay $10 to $20 but its reasonable compared to the impact Im going to make, when I walk in and give a unique piece.Ž Ms. Pryor Aristizabal said executives and owners should also take note of favorite foods and wines while wining and dining clients throughout the year and create gift baskets designed to their tastes. If youve played golf together consider something along those lines. The more personal, the more impact it has,Ž she said. I always encourage my clients to pay attention when theyre with their client. Its an investment and a way of saying thank you. In the busi-ness world, clients are the number one referring agent.Ž Gift cards to a favorite restaurant also work, she said. You can get $100 gift cards to Flemings and other restaurants for $80 at Costco,Ž she said. Most everyone likes to go out for dinner and its all about you thought of them and want them to splurge on themselves.Ž For her clients, Ms. Guerzo went hyper local this year, purchasing fruit-forward wines with whimsical labels from the Gilded Grape Winery. She also incorporated scarfand hat-wearing bottles on the beach into her greeting cards. Don’t overlook the underlingsAll too often businesses send holiday gifts to higher ups, unintentionally omitting administrative assistants who patch through their calls and support staff who often shoulder the brunt of the workload. Holiday gift giving is a marketing strategy, part of the overall business plan, and ideally should acknowledge receptionists and others who function as gatekeepers between you and their boss. I can tell you first-hand, an administrative assistant resents the fact the boss gets a gift and doesnt share and they do half the work,Ž Ms. Whitmore said. Its often best to give to an entire office and make mention of an assistant.ŽTo brand or not to brandLogoed items are one area where the experts disagree. Some call it tacky and too self-serving; others say its a great way to keep your companys name out there all year. Desk supplies are good, but stay away from the overdone coffee cup even if its filled with chocolate or nuts.For Lucy Costas, co-owner of Promotional Incentives in Cape Coral, most of her business is logoed merchandise „ from insulated tumblers and food baskets and tins to beach tow-els and embroidered apparel. The com-pany has specialized in corporate branding and logo merchandis-ing since 1990 and has seen a return to business gift giving in recent years.I think were returning to where it was 10 years ago,Ž Ms. Costa said. Personalization and customization now allow companies to emblazon their brand on everything; however, Ms. Costa said less is often more. Too much advertising becomes a promotion and not a gift. Its always a dilemma,Ž she said. I recommend clients imprint an icon or subtle logo. Look at Nike: It took years of brand building before it could drop the name and just use the swoosh.Ž Shes currently working with a Naples law firm to deliver insulated duffle bags embroidered with clients surnames. Inside, 30-ounce tumblers will be laser-etched with individuals first names. Drink ware has always been a bestselling promo item and were scram-bling to get tumblers for clients. My goal is to source out the best option at the least expense.Ž Promotional Incentive also works with heath-care organizations, govern-ment entities and nonprofit agencies, the latter of which have to walk the proverbial tightrope between thanking donors and spending their money on gifts. They want to be good stewards,Ž Ms. Costa said. Its been proven in research the visibility of these gifts doubles as a public relations tool.ŽNo missed opportunitiesWhether you dropped the ball or just couldnt make things happen in December due to production and ship-ping timelines, consider waiting until after the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. A New Years gift is perfectly acceptable and also novel. So is one sent in the spirit of the Chinese New Year, said Ms. Guerzo. I think Thanksgiving or New Years is best,Ž said Ms. Pryor Aristizabal. That way you dont have to know a cli-ents religious beliefs. You can also give thanks during the year.Ž Thats exactly what Markham Norton Mosteller Wright and Co. in Fort Myers does. We value our relationships with our clientele and the community. We want our clients to have a quality relation-ship with us and try to stay in-the-know of landmark events in their lives,Ž says Jessica Walker, marketing and public relations manager. MNMW will send gifts to clients at various times through the year for special events, promotions, awards and other life events, not nec-essarily focused on the holiday time of year. Gifts are sent on a case-by-case basis depending on the events taking place. We want our clientele to know they are family and to feel that connec-tion with our entire team.Ž Because Ms. Costas work depends on manufacturers and shipping company schedules, making the holiday deadline sometimes just isnt possible or eco-nomically feasible. If youve waited too long, its better to wait and do some-thing in January.Ž Whether you give now or later, know you have a great opportunity, said Ms. Guerzo. For $500 or whatever it might take, its not much money. No one else is doing it, so youre going to stand out from the competition.Ž Q GIFTINGFrom page 19 COURTESY PHOTODaniel, Brooke, Eric, Sherri and Benjamin Hynden.

Andrew Thomka-Gazdik | 561.714.8955 BEHIND THE WHEELChrysler Pacifica says it’s OK to return to the minivanThe candle that shines the brightest usually burns out the quickest, and the minivan is the perfect example. Its instant popularity with one generation made the kids who grew up in the back seat desperate to find any alternative when it came time for their own families. So the company that invented the mini-van is back to make versatility cool again with the new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. The established names like Caravan and Town & Country were purposely killed off. This a clear symbol that the new vehicle wants to break from the past, but not entirely. Those who know Chryslers might find PacificaŽ ironic considering they already used it back in 2003. That car borrowed the Caravan platform, but it was marketed as a three-row crossover „ a segment that was specifically creat-ed to carry the dimensions of a minivan without the family hauler stigma. And the name isnt the only piece of Chryslers history to carry over. The company that created the rule book for this segment knew there were some fun-damentals that needed to be followed. A minivan should be front-wheel drive. It eliminates bulky drivetrain piec-es that need to run through the cabin, or raise the ride height beyond what fits in the normal garage. Also, from the driver door backward, the design needs to be as boxy as possible. After all, those swoopy rear ends that we all love in sports cars are also inefficient for interior space. But while the Pacifica is barred from becoming a performance vehicle, the designers borrowed every available trick to add some speedy flair into the design. The grille and headlights are borrowed from the outgoing Chrysler 200 sedan; the front fenders have been flared to a muscle car-like size; and the rear pil-lar has the kind of strong presence that made BMWs so popular. And yes, faux wood paneling is no longer an option. The result is still obviously a minivan, but it is now handsome enough that own-ers no long have to point to its usefulness as justification for owning one. More important than disguising the exterior is making sure the interior maxi-mizes versatility. Standard on all Paci-ficas are features such as dual sliding side doors, three-zone climate control, and the Stow-n-Go seating that allows for a flat floor for cargo and added stor-age when the seats are in place. There is a standard backup camera, but busy parents will enjoy the Surround View upgrade that provides 360-degree vision a good distance around the car.A long option list offers everything from a upping the seating from seven to eight ($495) to dual touchscreen entertain-ment systems for the second row ($1,995 bundled entertainment package). But what really distinguishes the Pacifica is the Chrysler seems to remember dad and mom when thinking about available fea-tures. Everything from heated/cooled seats to high-end leather can be chosen (These might not be the best for sticky fingers, but its a great reminder that the heads of the household need to feel loved, too.) This can all take the base Pacifica from $29,590 to over $43K for a loaded Limited model.No matter the trim level, the engine is the same. The 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 is a carryover from the previous minivan, but it has been updated. On paper, the revised 237 horsepower is a less than 2 percent increase, but it feels much more powerful out on the road. Theres a hint of growl when the accelerator is firmly pegged to the floor that wasnt there before. It almost feels like Chryslers new parent at Fiat drove the old minivan, and the only instruction to engineers was Avanti!Ž Thats the new spirit of the minivan. It gets the fundamentals right, and then goes searching for a little soul. The new Chrysler Pacifica is out to recapture a generation that remembers all the weekend family adventures of the Caravan. But its real trick is to minimize the awkward feeling when entering the corporate parking lot on Monday morn-ing. It will never be cooler than that sports car from your bachelor days, but now that the minivan has gone premium, you no longer have to rebel against your parents car. Q myles

Science Center opens Conservation Course for duffers of all ages BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@” oridaweekly.comThe South Florida Science Center and Aquarium opened its new golf course in November and though its small and its golf, its definitely not mini-golf. The Conservation Course is a 100 percent authentic golf course laid out in a b utterfly gar den, on a smaller scale, of course. Designed by Gary Nicklaus and Jim Fazio, two big names in the golf world, the 18-hole course is challenging enough to be fun for all ages. But guests wont find any crazy windmill obstacles or cheap clown noses to shoot through. Instead, brooks babble, waters fall, plants thri ve and b utter flies flutter by. And because its at the SFSC, its assured guests will learn something about South Florida science. The course has an Everglades theme and each hole is named for a plant or animal found in the Everglades. Signs offer details about the plant or animal and its habitat. Kids also can learn about physics, geometry and problem-solving, as they learn to putt and drive, as well as golf etiquette and strategy. The SFSC plans to offer putting clinics and tournaments. Inside the center, guests can explore 50 hands-on educational exhibits, a 10,000-gallon freshwater and saltwater aquarium, and a digital planetarium. Right now, the special exhibition, Our Body,Ž is on display. If you ever mar-veled about how your body works, youll love this exhibition. Tickets to the center are $16.95 for adults, $14.95 seniors 60+, $12.95 age 3-12 and free for members and children younger than 3. Tickets for the Conser-vation Course tickets are $5 for mem-bers and $7 for nonmembers.

But when asked what he hopes readers will take away from the book, which is titled Good Vibrations: My Life as a Beach Boy,Ž Mr. Love points to something that might surprise some „ his lifestyle. Im hoping they get the fact that the reason Im still doing what Im doing at the level were doing it, meaning a vol-ume of work and stuff like that, is probably because I chose a path that wasnt a path of all the nefarious drugs that my cousins did, I mean, serious, serious stuff, and I chose not to,Ž Mr. Love said, refer-ring to his Beach Boys bandmates, broth-ers Brian, Carl and Dennis Wilson, during a recent phone interview in advance of a Dec. 16 stop at the Kravis Center. I will say that during the 60s, I did my share of weed.

Things were good, then tragedy struck and Lee had to move away from his hometown of Manchester-by-the-Sea, Mass., to Boston, which is about an hour away. He settles in, works miserably as a handyman and dwells on the past because he doesnt know how to move on. Then a phone call: His brother Joe (Kyle Chandler) died, and he now must become the caregiver of his 16 year-old nephew Patrick (Lucas Hedges). The majority of writer/director Kenneth Lonergans (You Can Count On MeŽ) story follows Lee as he returns to Manches-ter, deals with funeral arrangements, comes to terms with Patrick, and encounters Randi. None of it is necessarily pleas-ant to watch, but all of it feels essential, and its in this immediacy that our rapt attention cant (and doesnt want to) look away. Lonergans direc-tion is steady but not showy, and appropriately relies on the drama and performances to carry the load. And boy, do they. The ensemble is ter-rific, especially Affleck, who is worthy of a best actor Oscar nomina-tion. Lee is a man who is detached from the world and all who are in it; he doesnt want to connect with others in any kind of meaning-ful way, and you under-stand why. You also see his flaws and root for him, because he seems to be a good soul whos experienced unthink-ably terrible events. Afflecks approach is to not over-emote, and its the right one. This is not a time for histrionics. Lees restraint in dealing with anything is born out of fear of yet another fail-ure, and Afflecks ability to convey that resistance (and seeming indifference) makes this a performance thats easy to underappreciate. Dont. It deserves all the attention it can get. Williams is also great, as usual, especially in a big emotional scene, and Chandler makes his pres-ence felt in limited screen time as Lees big brother. The real break-out here, though, is Hedges, a rela-tive unknown (and the son of Dan in Real LifeŽ writer/director Peter Hedges) whos about to receive plen-ty of critical acclaim, and possibly even a supporting actor Oscar nomi-nation. Patrick is an afflicted youth to whom life hasnt been fair, but he doesnt play the pity or sympathy card. Instead he acts out in other ways, such as having two girlfriends, playing in a band and taking hockey more seriously than school. Hedges allows us to understand the numbness that Patrick feels, and because of this faade when he does get emotional it has a tremendous impact. Very simply, Manchester By The SeaŽ is one of the best films of 2016. Multiple Oscar nominations are in its future. Brace yourself and dont miss it. Q dan >> It was recently named the best lm of the year by the National Board of Review, which is a group of lm professors, critics and students whose awards kick off the annual Oscar season.

And a Beach Boys show is usually quite generous compared to the sets most bands play as headliners. Ordinarily the majority of our shows are an evening with the Beach Boys,Ž Mr. Love said. We actually do like an hour opening set with a 20-minute intermis-sion, followed by another 55 minutes to an hour.Ž This year is actually a landmark in Beach Boys annals. It was 50 years ago that the group, led by the groundbreaking musical vision of singer/keyboardist and chief songwriter and producer Brian Wil-son, released their masterpiece, the Pet SoundsŽ album and the wondrous single Good Vibrations.Ž Mr. Wilson famously suffered a breakdown while trying to complete Smile,Ž the aborted album that was to follow Pet Sounds,Ž and has dealt with drug and mental health issues ever since. He is doing his own extensive tour, celebrating the Pet SoundsŽ milestone by performing the full album. Mr. Love and the Beach Boys, meanwhile, have added a few num-bers from the 1966 album into their shows to honor the album. Mr. Loves relationship with Brian Wilson in itself would merit a book. The cousins were best friends growing up and formed the early lineup of the Beach Boys with Dennis and Carl Wilson and Al Jar-dine in 1961 in Hawthorne, Calif. Drawing on the California surfing lifestyle as an overriding theme, The Beach Boys became one of the biggest hit-mak-ing groups of the 1960s behind songs like Surfin U.S.A.,Ž Surfer Girl,Ž I Get Around,Ž Fun, Fun, FunŽ and Help Me, Ronda.Ž But Pet SoundsŽ proved to be the high point of the groups career. With that album, Brian Wilson broke away from some of the surfing, fun and sun themes of earlier albums in favor of more personal themes and created an album that, along with the Beatles 1967 jaw dropper, Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band,Ž raised pop music to a true art form. The history of the Beach Boys since then has seen one last hit song „ Koko-moŽ from the soundtrack to the 1988 movie CocktailŽ „ plenty of internal tensions, and tragedies in the form of the drowning death in 1983 of Dennis Wilson and the loss of Carl Wilson to cancer in 1998. There also was the high-profile lawsuit brought by Mr. Love against Brian Wilson in 1992, in which Mr. Love suc-cessfully reclaimed a sizeable sum in roy-alties and gained songwriting credits to 35 songs (Mr. Love wrote lyrics for many of the early Beach Boys songs) that had been omitted on the groups 1960s recordings. Through it all, though, Mr. Love kept the Beach Boys going as a successful touring act, and in 2012, the surviving members of the classic Beach Boys lineup „ including Brian Wilson, Al Jardine and Bruce Johnston „ reunited with Mr. Love for a 50th anniversary tour and a new Beach Boys album, Thats Why God Made the Radio.Ž The album had some worthy moments, but by June 2012, Mr. Wilson had left the tour and the highly celebrated reunion was over. Even with the heartache and drama that has been part of the Beach Boys his-tory, Mr. Love said he is nothing but grate-ful for the group and the life its enabled him to lead. Ive been part of a group thats one of the more well known groups in modern music. And the music will live on after us,Ž he said. So theres a lot more to be grateful and thankful for than to be regretful of.Ž Q BEACH BOYSFrom page 1 PUZZLE ANSWERSCOURTESY PHOTOThe Beach Boys will perform a holiday show at the Kravis Center.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF DECEMBER 15-21, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B13Wormhole and The Lounge in West Palm Beach, City Limits in Delray Beach) to current (Respectable Street in West Palm Beach, Propaganda in Lake Worth, Dada in Delray Beach), and been involved with publications that include The Palm Beach Post and Closer, as well as his own zine, the 5-year-old PureHoney. With a strong online presence and print distribution of 8,000-10,000, Mr. Rullmans monthly foldout offers pre-views, creative full-color graphics and a Soundcloud playlist of his selections. The featured acts range from local to the touring artists that he lures into South Florida venues. The idea for PureHoney basically came out of necessity,Ž Mr. Rullman said, because you have to find a way to make money doing something. I wanted a magazine with good foldout art that could turn into posters, mak-ing it like opening a gift. And since the middle of 2013, its become my sole source of income. But I still think it can be taken to another level.Ž The name of Mr. Rullmans popular mag sprang from The Honeycomb, his popular 1998-2013 local music website. As for the unorthodox spelling of his first name, that came from a different source. Thats the way my goddaughter spells it,Ž he said, so I decided to keep it. I needed a new email address a few years ago, anyway.Ž Hence steev@purehoneymagazine. com. As for how old he is, Mr. Rullman prefers a different, more mysterious title. Im ageless,Ž he said.Its true. Other publications have reported his age erroneously, accord-ing to Mr. Rullman, so lets just say hes young enough to have his own 5-year-old, at least in magazine form.PureHoneys fifth anniversary party on Sept. 17, Bumblefest, featured Penn-sylv ania-based headliners the Stargazer Lillies with two-dozen South Florida acts on multiple stages along the 500 block of Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach. Mr. Rullman esti-mates that more than 1,000 people attended that evening. One participant was acoustic duo the Whiskey Wasps, featuring the married co-founders of the sonic electric West Palm Beach rock quintet Raggy Mon-ster, vocalist Rachel DuVall and singing guitarist and keyboardist Billy Schmidt. Steev has single-handedly provided the South Florida music scene with a sense of community that you cant find anywhere else in Florida,Ž Mr. Schmidt said. Bumblefest was a perfect exam-ple, and a beautiful way to celebrate PureHoneys five years of success. Cant wait to see what he has planned next.Ž Bumblefest was a great lineup allaround by Steev,Ž said Lake Worth-based singer/songwriter John Ralston, who also performed. The bands were back-to-back at every club, and all were great fun.Ž Audience members of all ages reflected PureHoneys readership and Mr. Rullmans calendar-defiant, man-about-town approach. Id say the bulk of our readers are between 25 and 35,Ž he said. But theres also a significant readership between 15 and 25, plus in the 35-and-over bracket.Ž Steev and I have run into each other twice in the cat aisle at the grocery store,Ž Ms. DuVall said. Thats how you know hes a groovy guy.Ž By turning a monthly publication into a profitable venture while so many others fail, Mr. Rullmans latest groove is impressive, even if he isnt basking in the achievement. Id still like to gain more support from the local scene,Ž he said, but it should eventually be there. I initially started out studying film and radio in Gainesville, but came back here, got involved with bands, and never went back. I just knew I didnt want to do anything corporate. So I started out doing booking and promotion of my own band, which got me going in this general direction.Ž Club owners seem as impressed with Mr. Rullmans myriad arts and enter-tainment skills as are the musicians he promotes. What stands out to me the most about Steev is that hes one of the rare few that puts the arts and our scene above money,Ž said AJ Brockman, who co-owns the Lake Park plaza that houses performance venues the B rewhouse Gallery and the Kelsey Theater with his mother and business partner, Jo Brockman. Hes been an extremely influential member of the artist community, both visual and performing, not only through publications like PureHoney, but by literally pounding the pavement, networking, promoting and attending shows. To him, its not really a matter of whats cool and trendy. Its more a matter of love and passion for the arts and music, and supporting artists who are in it for the right reasons. He was supporting a grassroots effort before people really even knew what that meant „ focusing on local talent and local businesses, not major tourism. No matter how you look at it, he marches to the beat of his own drum, and thats what has really propelled our South Florida scene above anything else.Ž Mr. Rullmans most frequent partner in such endeavors has been Rodney Mayo, proprietor of diverse venues within his Sub-Culture Group „ from the 29-year-old Respectable Street and the venerable Howleys restaurant in West Palm Beach to Dada, which blends fine cuisine and original live music in Delray Beach. Rodney and I have worked together since 1998, right after I stopped work-ing for Fantasma Productions,Ž said Mr. Rullman, citing yet another tentacle in his octopus-worthy sphere of area entertainment influence. Steev not only pioneered the local music scene some 20-something years ago,Ž said Mr. Mayo, but he contin-ues to bring bands to our area that we would otherwise never have a chance to experience, even in well-known music cities like Austin, New York City and Chicago.Ž Or Los Angeles, home to Vagrant Records, Mr. Ralstons label for mul-tiple solo albums. The singer and gui-tarist gives Mr. Rullman credit for the years of work together that led up to his first Vagrant release in 2006. I think I first worked with Steev around 1998 or 1999,Ž Mr. Ralston said, though Id seen his band the Unseelie Court before that. He booked my for-mer band, Legends of Rodeo, to open shows at Respectable Street. Between then and 2005, it seemed like we were averaging a show per month there, and he also hired us to play Moonfest, his annual Halloween festival. If Steev hadnt been a part of the scene here, I dont know if Id have ever done the touring I did, or gotten noticed by Vagrant.Ž Mr. Ralstons drummer, Lantanabased Jeff Snow, remembers more viv-idly the first time he encountered Mr. Rullman. I saw Steev singing with the Unseelie Court at an old club called the Foundation, at Southern Boulevard and Military Trail in West Palm Beach,Ž Mr. Snow said. He was on stage with a microphone in one hand and a beer bottle in the other, and at one point, he put his thumb over the mic and started singing into the beer bottle. Which, in my mind at the time, made them the greatest band ever. So I followed them for the rest of their career.Ž The influence and mystery of Mr. Rullman may coalesce in forthcoming ventures that he paints only with broad strokes. All signs point to me running a new venue in the downtown West Palm area with Rodney in the next several months,Ž he said. And I had a meeting with an FM station recently in West Palm, and I may have another one with a station in Miami. Both are looking to be more community-centric through local music.Ž Mr. Rullman is much more specific in talking about several regional music labels, publishers, stations, publica-tions, blogs, shops, promoters and agencies that may have followed some of his multiple leads. Im really excited to see whats lurking just around the corner for the South Florida music community,Ž he said. There are so many good people doing so many great things right now.Ž He cited Houndstooth Cottage, Jolt Radio, Ghost Drag, The Infinite Chan-nel, Fuzz Baby, Kismet Vintage, Cheap Miami, Decades, Independent Ethos, PoDunk Radio, Too Much L ove, Limitless Agency, ArtSynergy, Crass Lips and SoundBytes, among others. Its super-inspiring to see many of these entities working together,Ž he said.

The art-ists legacy is that of founding father of the Chase School, which evolved into the revered and respected Parsons School of Design. Labeled an exponent of Impressionism, Chases work as a teacher left an impact on the art world that can be seen and felt today. For some it will seem the students have surpassed the teacher. For others, Edward Hopper and Georgia OKeeffe would not be household names but for Chases influence. The docent-led tour of the French impressionism offered at 5:30 p.m. is fol-lowed by four spotlight talks focusing on Chases students. The talks begin at 6:30 p.m. with George Bellows followed by Edward Hopper, Georgia OKeeffe and Charles Demuth. Guests who want to try their hand at Impressionism should join the DIY activ-ity, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Davis Gallery. Sammi McLean will teach. Take a minute to enjoy the Irwin Solomon Trio, which includes bass-player Dave Tomasello and Giuseppe Pucci on drums, performing jazzy holiday songs and selec-tions from the Great American Songbook.

The slightly sweet, slightly tangy condiment is the new must-have for burgers and other sandwiches. It goes well with the equally sweetly sour pickled green tomato and slightly sharp cheddar that top this fresh-ground burger, served medium as ordered on a perfectly toasted roll. Galley, the Hiltons bar-restaurant, was quiet the night we visited, but the views of the patio and pool beyond are gor-geous. Q „ Sc ott Simmons You c ould call Marvin Barrera the King of the Best Bites. Thats because Mr. Barrera, daytime chef and partner at Caff Luna Rosa in Delray Beach, won first place in the annual Best Bite on the Ave.Ž competition at Cranes Beach-House Hotel & Tiki Bar for the past three years. And hes got the trophies to prove it. The popular chow-down pairs 10 local restaurant chefs and 10 nonprofits to compete for votes and donations. At the most recent competition, Caff Luna Rosas entry, created by Chef Barrera, involved yellowtail snapper with a saf-fron sauce and a jumbo crab garnish. I like to win,Ž admits Chef Barrera. But winning is not something that hap-pens one time. You do it all the time.Ž With that in mind, Chef Barrera prepares winning dishes day after day at the Oceanside restaurant. But dont ask him to pick one favorite. Everything on our menu is good,Ž he says. Eggs Benedict, omelets, pancakes, they are all good and very popular. And I do four specials every week. I look at almost every plate that leaves the kitchen to be sure it meets our stan-dards for quality, consistency and fresh-ness,Ž he says. Im always focused on making sure we do the best for all our customers and it makes me proud to know that customers are enjoying their meals.Ž Caffe Luna Rosa was founded as a gelateria and paninoteca in 1993 by Fran Marincola. It became a full service res-taurant serving breakfast, lunch and din-ner in 1997. Six years ago, Mr. Marincola made some of the longtime employees, including Chef Barrera, partners. Other partners are Executive Chef Ernesto DeBlasi, Day Manager John Gergen, Office Manager Bonnie Beer, Nikola Sti-jak and Aaron Hallyburton. Chef Barrera learned the ropes by working with good chefs over the years. I enjoy the chance to use my creativity when putting together our daily lunch and brunch specials,Ž he says. At Caff Luna Rosa, I have been given an opportunity to grow and everyone truly is treated like a member of the family.Ž Being a partner at a top restaurant in Delray Beach is quite an accomplish-ment for Chef Barrera, who grew up on a vegetable farm in Guatemala. There, he rose at 4:30 each morning to tend to the cows and horses and to work the land. He moved to the U.S. when he was 20 and started working in restaurants. He remains an early riser, up at 5:30 to open the kitchen at Caff Luna Rosa. Fran Marincola has helped me and my family in so many ways,Ž he says. Were all grateful for the kindness weve received and for what Fran has done for us.Ž Chef Barrera and his wife, Maria Isabel Barrera, have two children, Isabella, 13, and Ivana, 11, and live in Palm Beach Gardens. Marvin BarreraAge: 47 Original country: Guatemala Restaurant: Caff Luna Rosa, 34 S. Ocean Blvd., Delray Beach, 274-9404, Its open for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. Mission: To be the best I can. To get out to customers the best food I can every day. Cuisine: Italian at night and ItalianAmerican during the day. Training: I learned from professionals and soaked in as much knowledge as I could every day. Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? No particular brand, just comfortable shoes for someone on his feet a lot. What advice would you give someone who wants to be a restaurateur or chef? Focus at all times. You have to have a passion for food and for cooking. And keep customers in mind.

Setting the Gold Standard in Orthopedic Care 3360 Burns Road € Palm Beach Gardens € Advanced smile design techniques in Palm Beach Gardens Y ou may have cavities, older dental work, or even in need of major dental treatment, but with advanced dentistry, theres always a solution that can meet your needs. There are many wonders that a highly trained cosmetic and restorative dentist can offer patients that may surprise you. Major issues with dental health can be effectively treated, and even the most serious den-tal problems can be dealt with. In order to achieve such great results, however, its often necessary for a dentist to have extensive experience and training in both dental reconstruc-tion and cosmetics. This is the world of advanced smile design, and wed like to take a few minutes to look into it right now.What does smile design refer to?Smile design refers to the ability for a dentist to create a smile that not only looks attractive, but suits the patients facial features for an overall healthy and natu-ral appearance. Simultaneously, we can achieve excellent dental health and func-tion, giving patients the ability to eat what-ever theyd like and smile with confidence.Advanced Digital TechnologySmile design today involves the use of extensive digital photography of a patients face, teeth and existing smile so the doctor can custom design a new smile. Teeth can be lengthened, straightened, brightened and properly aligned so the final result is a beautiful healthy smile that becomes an expression of the true self. Our patients are welcome to look through a number of before and after photos of actual patients weve treated,Ž states Dr. Ajmo. Once they see what weve done for so many others, they quickly realize we can do the same for them too.Ž PGA Center for Advanced Dentistry also uses 3D CT Technology for all dental implant treatment. 3D Technology is much more accurate than traditional black and white x-rays, allowing Dr. Ajmo to pre-cisely place dental implants in the proper location in your jaws.Customized Smile Makeover TreatmentYour smile makeover may include a number of treatment options depending on your personal needs and desires. It may involve replacing older crowns with new cosmetic metal free crowns which look so much more natural and will usually last longer. We could also enhance chipped, worn or dark teeth with cosmetic porce-lain veneers for a brighter more youthful appearance. In some cases we may make-over the upper teeth and simply bleach the lower teeth and achieve outstanding results.Customized Full Mouth Reconstruction TreatmentFull mouth reconstructions involve replacing missing teeth with dental implants and replacing older dental work with new metal free state-of-the-art porce-lains. Of course there is always an empha-sis on the overall health and wellness of the mouth, but these treatments are always combined with cosmetic enhancements to achieve overall long term dental health and esthetics. A full mouth reconstruc-tions may involve dental implants, crowns, bridgework or a number of necessary treat-ment modalities. Either way, the overall goal involves feeling healthy, looking your best, being able to eat meals properly and giving patients the ability to live life to the fullest.What to Expect from a Dental Restorative MakeoverWhether you undergo a smile makeover or a full mouth reconstruction, you can expect great results and improved dental wellness. And thanks to advanced dentistry, you can usually have all necessary treatments performed in the same office with the mutual understanding that your mouth will be healthy and your smile will look great. With Advanced Dentistry, patients can experience optimum dental care to support overall health and well-being.Learn More About Advanced Dental CareIf you would like to learn more about smile design and your many options out there for cosmetic dentistry and restor-ative dentistry or dental implant treatment, contact our Palm Beach Gardens office today.

ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY DECEMBER 2016 healthy living C3 No double chin, no surgery, no kidding! A re you bothered by the fullness beneath your chin? Youre not alone. You may be staring at your submental fullness or your double chinŽ wondering why it will not go away. A double chin is a common, yet undertreated facial aesthetic condition. It can detract from an otherwise bal-anced and harmonious facial appear-ance, lead to an older and heavier look, impact a broad range of adults and may be caused by aging, genetics and/or weight gain. Fortunately, KYBELLA can help. KYBELLA is the first and only FDAapproved treat-ment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin (submental full-ness) by physically destroying fat cells. When injected into the fat beneath the chin, KYBEL-LA permanently destroys fat cells. Once theyre gone, those cells cannot store or accumulate fat. Your bodys natural metabolism then processes the fat cleared from the treatment area. The nonsurgical, in-office injection process may take as little as 15 to 20 minutes and will be tailored to your submental fat distribution and treat-ment goals. Prior to your treatment session, your healthcare provider may apply ice/cold packs or topical and/or local anesthesia to the treatment area to make you more comfortable. After treatment, apply ice or a cold pack to the treatment area for 10 to 15 minutes, as needed. You may return to work and all regular activities as tolerated. Although results are noticeable, they are not immediate. We generally start with 2 treatments in our office and then assess your results from there. Each treatment is at least one month apart. Typically results appear within weeks to months, and keep improving as additional treatments are administered. KYBELLA may be right for you if:€ Youre bothered, unhappy, self-conscious or embarrassed by fat under the chin, also known as submental fullness € You feel the condition makes you look older or heavier than you actually are € You dont want to have sur-gery € You eat well and exercise, but submental fullness does not go away KYBELLA is one of the fastest, safest, and most convenient ways for you to address your double chin without surgery or extensive downtime. If youd like to learn more about this treatment or are interested in scheduling a consul-tation appointment, call Youthful Bal-ance Medical Center. KYBELLA may be combined with other cosmetic procedures the same day, such as Botox and Juvederm. Earn points to save on KYBELLA and other aesthetic treatments with the Brilliant Distinctions Rewards Pro-gram. This allows you to achieve your aesthetic goals, while keeping the cost affordable. So, what are you waiting for? Schedule your consultation today and get ready to reveal your results. Q Jennifer NicholsonNurse Practitioner Youthful Balance 10887 N.

But many conditions dont have telling symptoms until they are in a progressive stage. You could be at risk because of lifestyle choices, age or genet-ics. If you could find out if you are at a personal risk for a stroke, heart disease or lung cancer, why not know now so that you can be proactive in prevention? For conditions like these, and many others, there exists a number of inex-pensive yet poten-tially lifesaving tests and screen-ings. Health screen-ings can be con-ducted routinely as preventive mea-sures. If a screen-ing does reveal an underlying condi-tion, research has shown that early detection can make all the difference in treating and managing disease. Maintaining your health can mean keeping your independence. Visiting a medical center is no longer just for when youre sick. Its a place that cares for your overall wellness, even while youre healthy, so that hopefully you will stay that way. Jupiter Medical Center makes proactive health care as easy and conve-nient as possible by offering the follow-ing screenings. CT lung screeningIt takes the average person five minutes to smoke a cigarette. Unfortunate-ly, those 5 minutes are the number one cause of cancer death: lung cancer. This puts smokers at high risk. Fortunately, more than 80 percent of lung cancers can be beaten if detected early using a CT screening „ and it only takes 15 minutes.Heart health screeningsHeart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, yet one of the more preventable and manageable diseases given the proper diagnosis and treatment. The biggest factor in coping with and surviving this threat begins with knowing your risk. If you are over age 55, overweight, have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes or prediabetes, you are at risk.Vascular screeningSometimes diet and exercise arent enough to lessen the risk for vascular disease; heredity plays a large role as well. Stroke, the third leading cause of death in the US, and aneurysms are often referred to as silent killers,Ž because they often do not have any symptoms before an attack, making it extremely important to be screened for risk factors as we age. Some insurance plans now cover the cost of some screenings. Our health navigator can help you understand your risk and your coverage. If you do not have coverage for screening, Jupiter Medical Center offers a self-pay price. For information on risk factors, screen-ing offerings, locations, scheduling and cost, please visit our new health screen-ings website at For additional information, contact our health navigator, Gail Coo-per-Parks, at (561) 263-4437.

MARYS MEDICAL CENTER When it comes to holiday dinners, calories from overindulging on an extra scoop of gravy or just one moreŽ slice of pecan pie can add up fast. By tweak-ing some of your favorite holiday reci-pes and including nutrient-rich dishes, you can eat healthy during the holidays and still be friends with your scale at the beginning of the New Year. Your guests may not notice any difference, but your waistline will! S t. Marys Medical Center and the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital are here to help by providing a list of smart substitutions to give your holiday menu a healthy makeover.CarrotsCarrots are known for being rich in beta-carotene, the antioxidant carot-enoid that your body can convert into vitamin A. This nutrient is important for eye health and can give you glowing skin. You dont need to munch on raw carrots to enjoy their health benefits. In fact, steaming carrots makes the beta-carotene more readily available. Instead of slathering carrots in butter and sugary glazes, steam carrots and sprinkle them with parsley or dill. Or, try adding tarragon and cinnamon to bring out their natural sweetness.Cranberry sauceMaking your own cranberry sauce can boost flavor and nutrients with fewer preservatives. Cranberries are a fall treat chock full of antioxidants, and they are a good source of vitamin C and fiber. To make your own, simmer cranberries, orange juice, ginger ale, the zest of one orange, a touch of maple syrup and light brown sugar for 30 to 45 minutes. Then, blend the mixture into a puree and serve. Its almost as easy as opening a can!Sweet potatoesSweet potatoes are now in season, so dont mask their natural goodness in a calorie-bomb casserole. These roots are a good source of dietary fiber and potassium, and they are high in vitamins A and C. Baking them is as simple as placing them in the oven for an hour, which will free up valuable time to pre-pare the rest of your meal. Sweet pota-toes naturally pair with spices you may already have in your cupboard, such as ground cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Its OK to add a little butt er; just dont go overboard!CheesecakeSave room for dessert because your cheesecake could be the talk of the table. Substitute higher-fat cream cheese for part-skim ricotta cheese to give your dessert a delicate texture. Take your cheesecake to the next level by topping it with some colorful ber-ries for an eye-catching presentation as well as extra vitamins and antioxidants. Cutt ing calories can prevent obesity, which is a significant risk factor for type 2 diabetes. Learning to make healthy substitutions is a valuable skill for preparing family meals year round. Holiday meal preparation is an excellent opportunity to teach your child about healthy eating habits. If you have a little helper in the kitchen, you can call (866) 236-5933 to request a free childs apron from the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital. With this apron, your holiday meal ingredi-ents have a greater chance of making it into the pot and not on your child's outfit! Q
