These are tales of tragedy and comedy, chronicling adventures, high and low. Theres the one about the couple who received a large package via Fed-eral Express from a beloved uncle. They excitedly open it and discover a whole ham. It is covered in black mold, a gamey perfume of smoke and oak ris-ing to meet their noses. Too bad, they think. Its spoiled. They bury it in the backyard (an urban-country legend), or they swaddle the wrapper to contain the ruin and take it to the garbage can. In it goes with a thud. They congratulate themselves. They have narr owly av oided poisoning their entire family. Uncle Fudd is not told the fate of his gift. They just tell him they prefer city ham. On hearing this, Uncle Fudd shakes his head in wonderment but says nothing. The season passes. Uncle Fudd neither forgives nor forgets. His once-intended beneficiaries are stricken from his estate plan. Never again does the errant couple receive a country ham or anything else. Thus, hope ends for the uninitiated of any communion with pork nirvana. But for the silliness and ignorance of man, what instead might have been. I, myself, have been tested. When my ham connection was lost, I suf-fered the five stages of grief „ deni-al, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. There can be no genuine country ham without a coveted source. Let me explain. First, I am not talking about just any ole ham, and especially not the ham appearing on the table as an inflated chunk of honey-baked candy. I am talk-ing about the quintessential, salt-cured, two-year-old country ham that has gone through the summer sweats, nursed toward its prime by a sage farmer who knew his way around a smoke house and the difference between a prime hog and a porky pig. And sorry, Virginia and North Carolina, Kentucky wins this contest hands down. This road to culinary glory begins with a fundamental task: You first must acquire the ham. It sounds simple but herein lies the difficulty. The ham is the holy grail of pig parts. It starts out as mere pork. It is transformed into a culinary mas-terpiece by an old-fashioned method of curing over at least two years. The task requires an artisan incarnated as a farmer. There are only as many prop-erly cured country hams as there are artisan farmers, and believe me, among those who claim to be, few are. You must eat a lot of bad ham to know the difference. Finding the source of such a ham requires a crusade of obeisance to ham elders. You must prove your worthi-ness. A spiritual guide serves you a sliver of the sacred delicacy to edu-cate your palate. The taste is instantly acquired. You grovel to be blessed with a few slices to take home. Your enlight-enment deepens, always at the generos-ity of your spiritual guide. This goes on for several years, maybe even decades. Finally, the elders give you their blessing. You are initiated into the order of the ham. Your name is added to the coveted ham distribution list, but only after the Grim Reaper winnows a name or two so yours eventually pops up. I remember the day when my husband and I proudly brought home our first country ham. That blessed day took a tragic turn, almost imperil-ing forever the likelihood of any more country hams in our future. We lived in the Bluegrass in an old creaking mansion straight out of Gone with the Wind.Ž Every room was heated differently. You closed off rooms you did not heat. A frigid but not frozen room is the perfect place to store the overflow from a burgeoning holiday larder, especially a 25-pound country ham „ or so we thought. That long winters night, my husband and I were buried in bed under a stack of quilts. Our two canines were camped nearby. In the wee hours, we heard them quietly padding into the bathroom, lapping thirstily from their alternate watering hole, the john. We stirred, taking note, but reasoned the dog bowl must be dry. But their multiple trips troubled our sleep. They seemed unable to quench an insatiable thirst. Then it hit us. We bolted up right out of a dead sleep, looked at one another in horror and yelled simultaneously, The ham!Ž Running downstairs, we sadly discovered a cracked door and the car-cass the brutes had failed to finish. The saltiness of their purloined treat betrayed them before they got their fill. Tearfully, we salvaged a small plate of the delicacy, the ruin of pork paradise nearly complete. We swore to carry the secret to our graves. Otherwise, Uncle Fudd would surely cut us off. Nor did our holiday guests ever learn why such stingy por-tions were served that year. Sadly, despite our silence, our ham connection finally met demise through other means. Our little secret is no more. Q

A4 NEWS WEEK OF DECEMBER 29, 2016-JANUARY 4, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY OPINIONThe steady AmericanWhen the Greek philosopher Plato suggested the state is the soul writ large,Ž he established a template for understanding who we are. Any of us, in any time or place. What we want, what we do, how we think, how we treat others, what we expect of them and of ourselves „ our national character, more or less „ is defined in each individual who must answer those questions in the music of a particular or parochial American life. Such was true of Elizabeth Kay McCullers, born to farmers April 15, 1939, in south Lee County. She spent her life there, tying it off with a knot of love 77 years later, near midnight on Dec. 14. When Kay drew her last breath, her fingers, hands, heart and soul were woven into those of her husbands and childrens, I learned from her son, Dr. J.F. McCullers. Shed been married to her husband, John, for 57 years. An American, a Southerner, a Floridian, an Estero farm girl and community stal-wart, Mrs. McCullers championed public schools and 4H and her church and vora-cious reading for herself and her sons, Jeff and Andy. She believed in solid knowing „ how to grow carrots and why zoning meetings were important and how to sew a dress. Such a woman was not merely the model of a region. Instead, she was the soul of a nation at its best, something worth recalling on the cusp of 2017. There were and still are others like her, of course, some with different accents and distinct music. But their numbers shrink. On the Estero farm where Hugh and Delia Smith raised Kay, there was always an immense vegetable garden,Ž Jeff told me. And, as was the case with nearly everyone else in Estero in the first half of the 20th century, the backyard of the house she grew up in was filled with tropical fruits of all kinds: guavas, red guavas, man-goes, lychees, Key limes, Surinam cherries, avocados, kumquats, carambolas, tama-rind, papayas, jaboticabas, chayote, pine-apple, lemons, bignay, muscadine grapes, pomelos, bananas, and coconuts. In her case, these and other fruits also filled the side yards and the front yard. Of course, all of this was surrounded by acres and acres of oranges, tangerines, and grapefruit.Ž All of it was also shared with the farmers and fishing families around her, who in turn shared what they had „ avocadoes, okra, venison, shrimp, snook, smoked mul-let or guava jelly, to name a few. It left her,Ž her son notes, with a strong sense of duty to other people, and a genuine respect for people who work for a living.Ž The result of such forging nationwide: an abundance of men and women at once proud, tolerant, energetic, good-willed, kind, curious, humorous and resilient. A people committed to doing something bet-ter than it used to be done and as well as they could possibly do it. I think of that model as the steady American. They were not extreme in their political views or personal behaviors. They were colorful characters or not „ it didnt matter. They were generally mod-est and they accepted their time and place with its inherent attitudes and histories uncomplainingly, then got to work on it and on themselves. They made it better if they could and set it aside if they couldnt. Their politics, too, could vary within a liberal to conservative range that always weighed other opinions. As Jeff puts it about his mother, in particular, she was neither a liberal nor a conservative, so far as I could ever tell. She believed that people in need should be helped, that people who took advantage of other peo-ple should be stopped, and everyone else should do their best.Ž When I knew her, she was a 98-pound stick of big-hearted dynamite who had and could drive a tractor; get in to the Exhibition Hall in Fort Myers to see Elvis with her lifelong friend, Phoebe Millership Freeland; host a stranger for supper as if hed been born into the family and had to be convinced of the fact before the eve-ning ended; ride a motorcycle into old age behind her equally remarkable husband, John; and think as crisply and clearly as anybody who ever came down the Ameri-can road. She suffered physically in her last years and said little about it to outsiders. All of which leaves me with this thought: If the state is the soul of Kay McCullers and her family writ large, were going to be OK. May it be so „ may we make it so by taking her example „ and may she rest in abiding peace. Q Hillary has only herself to blameThe Democrats have a simple explanation for Hillary Clintons loss „ the Russians did it. The party that has had a decadeslong soft spot toward Moscow and been reluctant to believe that the Kremlin might have aggressive intentions or, say, cheat on an arms-control agree-ment is in a frenzy over Russian hack-ing that supposedly denied Hillary the victory that was rightfully hers. John Podesta, the chairman of a Hillary campaign that considered accept-ing the results of an election part of American writ as of about two months ago, refused several times on Meet the PressŽ last Sunday to say the presiden-tial election was free and fair.Ž In a contest this narrow, anything might have been decisive. But the mono-causal Russian explanation for Hillarys defeat ignores her myriad political and ethical vulnerabilities that the Demo-crats were determined to disregard, despite the obvious evidence of them for years. Vladimir Putin couldnt have handpicked a worse champion for them this year. There was no reason to believe that Hillary Clinton was a good politi-cian who could deliver a compelling message, since she had never done it before. The Democratic establishment rushed into the arms of a candidate who, it was clear from the beginning, could well lose to Donald Trump, espe-cially if a few things bounced the wrong way „ and is now shocked and out-raged that she indeed lost when a few things bounced the wrong way. Yes, the Russian interference was among those things. But some per-spective: The hack of the Democratic National Committee disrupted the early going of the Democratic convention, but the convention was still a wild political success. Certainly none of them had the effect of the James Comey letter 11 days before the voting, which dominated the coverage for days and led to an immedi-ate slide in Hillarys poll numbers. This is why Democrats tend to lump in James Comey with the Russians when arguing that the election was hacked, even though hes the director of the FBI, not the FSB. Comey is a public servant who had to grapple with the unprecedented circumstance of a major political party knowingly nominating a presidential candidate under FBI inves-tigation. Who thought this was a good idea? Democrats just assumed that everything related to the investigation would go Hillarys way. She escaped indict-ment, but two of the worst moments of her campaign came courtesy of Comey, whose public explanation of her han-dling of her emails wounded her in the summer. It is true that late-deciding voters broke against Hillary, although its impossible to disentangle the effect of WikiLeaks, the Comey letter and natural factors, i.e., she was the known quantity running as the quasi-incum-bent at a time of great voter discontent, setting her up for a fall at the end. Democrats are calling for an investigation of Russian interference in the election. This is entirely appropriate. But everything points to the Democrats not being able to handle the fundamen-tal truth of what happened on Nov. 8 „ they took a flier on a historically weak candidate out of a misbegotten attach-ment to the Clinton dynasty, and paid a grave price for their foolish mistake.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF DECEMBER 29, 2016-JANUARY 4, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESOverweight dogs face lower quality of life, greater risk of disease and a shortened lifespan BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickCan you pinch an inch? Not on your own body, but on your dogs? If you can, he could probably stand to lose some weight. Its something to think about as we enter a new year with good resolutions to improve ourselves „ and our pets. When we hear the word malnutrition,Ž we think of starvation, but you might be surprised to learn that obesity is the most common form of malnutrition in dogs. Its estimated to affect nearly 53 percent of the canine population, accord-ing to a May 2014 survey by the Associa-tion for Pet Obesity Prevention. Thats a lot of extra weight! Why are so many dogs fat? Often, its because owners dont recognize the prob-lem. And veterinarians may hesitate to speak up because its not uncommon for people who are overweight to have pets with the same problem. A 2013 study found that people who were 60 or older and overweight themselves tended to have overweight pets. Carrying too many pounds is a serious problem in pet pups. Obesity, defined as being 20 percent or more over their ideal body weight, puts dogs at higher risk of joint problems, poor mobility, reduced kidney function, poor response to anesthesia and skin and urinary tract infections. Thats not all. A long-term study found that osteoarthritis and chronic diseases in general developed approximately two years later in dogs who remained at or below their normal body weight than in dogs allowed to become overweight. The trim dogs lived an average of two years longer than the fat dogs. There are more benefits, according to Martha Cline, DVM, a veterinary nutrition-ist who spoke on obesity last month at a San Diego veterinary conference. Dogs who achieved even modest weight loss suf-fered significantly less lameness. Quality of life gains included increased vitality and reduced emotional disturbance and pain. Dogs who lost weight also had improved renal function. To tell if your dog needs to lose weight, give him a visual exam and the hands-on test. A dogs body should be shaped like an hourglass, not a sausage. As you look down at him, can you see an indentation behind his ribs before the body flares out again? Thats his waist. Then put your hands on his back, thumbs along the spine and fingers splayed out on his sides. As you gently press inward, you should be able to feel his ribs beneath a layer of skin and muscle. If the ribs are buried beneath rolls of fat, its time to talk to your veterinarian about a safe diet and exercise plan. A veterinary exam, including lab work, ensures that your dog doesnt have any underlying health problems that are causing weight gain or that could be wors-ened by changes in activity levels or type of food. One easy change you can make is to measure your dogs food and feed meals twice a day instead of leaving food out all the time. Even better, put a days supply of dry food inside a puzzle toy so your dog spends the day actively huntingŽ for his meals. Instead of high-calorie treats, offer small bites of chopped carrots, green beans or apples. To add more activity, begin with brief walks. As his stamina improves, gradually increase the distance. Always stop before your dog shows signs of exhaustion, such as panting or reluctance to go further. For dogs who are currently in good shape, the best thing you can do is to make sure they dont become sedentary as they age. Keeping dogs at a healthy weight is a lot easier than trying to take pounds off.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF DECEMBER 29, 2016-JANUARY 4, 2017 A7 Beach. It doesnt mean our jobs done, but its definitely positive, and its what we want to see.Ž The center monitors 9 miles of beach, where 15,234 clutches were counted and cordoned off between March 1 and Oct. 31. That beat the previous peak of 11,525. We cant assume the loggerhead has recovered just because we have a good nesting year,Ž Ms. McCracken cautioned. Maybe were making a lot of the right changes, but I dont think we know yet.Ž Regulations put into place almost 30 years ago, including bans on poaching, regulations on fisheries and require-ments for shrimping vessels to use tur-tle-excluding devices, have begun to positively affect the revered reptile. We now are right at the beginning of what the impacts of those initiatives and protocols are,Ž Ms. McCracken said. While our turtles seem to be doing well here, I think we need more data.Ž Loggerheads, the smallest of the three types that crawl to the dune line to dig a hole and drop their eggs, can reach weights of 300 pounds. Greens, which average 400 pounds, and leatherbacks, 2,000-pound behemoths, also fared well. Were expecting next year to be high again for greens,Ž Ms. McCracken said, noting the species typically has a bien-nial reproductive cycle. Greens had 700 nests. Leatherbacks had 160. The grand total: 16,094, which works out to one nest every three feet. At John D. MacArthur Beach State Park, a 1.6-mile strand in North Palm Beach, it also was a record year for log-gerheads, with 1,922 nests. The previous record of 1,675 was set in 2012. Weve had four out of five years of 1,500 loggerhead nests and ab ove,Ž parkservices specialist Art Carton said. It just seems like a trend thats going to keep continuing.Ž Mr. Carton oversees the parks Citizen Science program, in which volunteers mark every 20th sea-turtle nest on the beach and then count its eggs after hatchout. The findings were a little alarming. We found a lot of nests that, for some reason, the eggs did not hatch,Ž Mr. Carton said. We had a good year for nests. Its just that the nests were not as productive as last year.Ž Of the 82 excavated, the hatchout rate was 30 percent. Sixty-four nests were excavated in 2015, and the hatchout rate was 58 percent. That was one of the big, strange things going on this year,Ž Mr. Carton said. We have to see what the next year brings.Ž Kirt Rusenko, marine conservationist at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center in Boca Raton, is not optimistic. We think what happened this year was we had a very dry season and very high temperatures,Ž according to Dr. Rusenko, who said gauges inserted into a sample of the 783 nests along the cen-ters five-mile coastline logged lethal heat. The gender of the hatchings, in fact, is determined by the temperature of the sand.Ž The warmer the sand, the more likely females will result. Cooler sand produc-es males. This year, the female-to-male ratio was two-to-one. You just cant have a population thats predominately female,Ž Dr. Rusen-ko said. Its just not going to be good.Ž Of the 783 nests, loggerheads accounted for 729, greens 36 and leatherbacks 18. Sky-glow issues, trash accumulation and now climate change all are culprits in keeping loggerheads and greens on the threatened list and leatherbacks on the endangered list,Ž he said. If we pay attention to the climate change and try to reduce our carbon-dioxide output, it would certainly make things better,Ž Dr. Rusenko said. Q REIGNFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOLoggerhead nesting was up along area beaches, but researchers say a hot, dry summer may have kept hatch-out rates low.

BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF DECEMBER 29, 2016-JANUARY 4, 2017 | A16 WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM BY JAN NORRISjnorris@” oridaweekly.comAn invention called The Tucker, a boon to bed-makers everywhere, hinged on the broken fingernail of its designer. I broke a nail, and hurt my hand making the bed one day, so I told my husband there has to be a better way,Ž said Dolores Dioguardi. The perky 89-year-old says that at any age, Its hard to lift a ridiculously heavy mattress while trying to tuck a sheet under it at the same time.Ž Shes an admitted neat-freak and takes time from busy days at her new company and from playing golf to make her beds every day. Ive read all these comments from people who laugh about making beds. Who takes the time and who cares?Ž she quoted. She laughs. I do. I am very fussy about a tidy house. We always make our bed. I believe in the old saying, Messy house: messy head. And its true. Its so much more pleasant to work in a neat and tidy space.Ž She and her husband, Philip, set out to invent a sheet-tucking implement. We were drawing pictures together. So he made a prototype out of card-board and then out of plastic,Ž she said. Finally, We were able to secure a designer.Ž After a few weeks of tweaks, they came up with The Tucker. Its a paddle-like implement with a handle that glides under the mattress like a spatula with one push, neatly tucking in the sheet.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF DECEMBER 29, 2016-JANUARY 4, 2017 BUSINESS A17MOVING ON UP Kai Li Fouts is a very busy lawyer married to another busy lawyer (Chris Je tte) with 11-year-old-twins and a 10-year old. I cart my children around to their various singing and dancing rehearsals and performances, which is one of my favorites things to do,Ž says Ms. Fouts, a partner at Eisenberg & Fouts, P.A. I love that my children love the arts.Ž She and her entire family practice the Tae Kwon Do and she is a First Degree Dan Black Belt with recognition by the Kukkiwon in Korea. My family and I are all working toward Second Dan and we have all competed in state and national tourna-ments as well,Ž Ms. Fouts said. Ms. Fouts and her husband make sure their children arent idle. All of them will be going to the Hanley Founda-tions 22nd annual Family Picnic on Feb. 12 at the National Croquet Center in West Palm Beach. Ms. Fouts and her husband are serving as the event cochairs. Michelle and Bob Diffenderfer are honorary chairs Hanley Foundation is a nonprofit organization that raises money for scholarships for addiction treatment and provides substance abuse preven-tion and education programs for stu-dents, parents and caregivers. I believe that educating our children and instilling a high expectation of themselves is the best path to drug and alcohol abuse prevention,Ž said Ms. Fouts. I look forward to attending this fun event with my husband and three children, as family time is time well spent and a key activity for preventing future substance abuse.Ž Ms. Fouts has lived in Florida since graduating from law school in 1995. I interned with William J. Sheppard, one of the most prominent criminal defense lawyers and civil rights attor-neys in Jacksonville after my second year of law school,Ž she says. He told me that the brain trust of criminal defense law in Florida came from the appellate division here at the Office of the Public Defender in West Palm Beach and if I wanted to learn something new everyday, that was the place to work. I planned to stay my obligatory three years with the office and then return to the Midwest to be near my family. But then I met my hus-band, who was a prosecutor at the time and a native Floridian. Needless to say, despite our Montague/Capulet relation-ship given our respective jobs, his heels were dug in so deeply here and Ive been here ever since.Ž Kai Li Aloe Fouts.Age: 47 Where I grew up: Mostly in Madison, Wis., and Grand Rapids, Mich. Where I live now: West Palm Beach. Education: A bachelors degree in 1991 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a double major in com-munication arts in radio, television and film and political science. I went to law school at Syracuse University, College of Law, and graduated in 1995. What brought me to Florida: I came after interviewing in New York for a job at the Office of the Public Defender in West Palm Beach. My first job and what I learned from it: My first job as an assistant public defender taught me great per-spective and how treating people fairly, respectfully and compassionately, even if you havent walked a day in their shoes, will always make more of a dif-ference in their lives and in your own life.... I also learned so much about interpersonal communication and that by just simply being kind and acknowl-edging everyone in the courtroom with a smile, no matter what their position is, will always make a positive difference despite what difficult circumstances may exist with the cases themselves. Career highlights: My most satisfying career highlights are the appellate wins Ive had. With appellate cases, most clients have already lost at trial. When you can write and argue some-thing artfully and persuasively that not only sways the court, but also benefits your client and has far-reaching prec-edent for other cases and clients, its very rewarding. But when youre fortu-nate to see or hear from a client several years after representing them, and to see or hear from them because things in their lives are going well, is the most rewarding thing about the practice of criminal defense work. Hobbies: Tae Kwon Do. I also take my children around to their singing and dancing rehearsals and performances. The best advice I can give to someone going into my field: Understand that it is the practice of law because we cannot make it perfect. One must understand that mistakes will be made and that one must own up to them and learn from them in order to be the best one can be. But to be an advocate is to zealously represent your client while maintaining the professionalism and the ethics needed in order to be the most positive reflection possible on your client because oftentimes you are the only person there to help them. About mentors: My professional mentors have been my law partner, James L. Eisenberg, Kerry Sheehan, our mitigation and sentencing specialist, and our assistant, Ginger Waite. I have learned to laugh at myself, and learned the importance of having a loving and supportive work family. They have helped me learn every single day to be a better attorney, to expect the best of myself, and to always have perspective when it comes to the difficulties in the practice of law. I wouldnt be where I am today without them. Q „ Hanley Foundations 22nd annual Family Picnic is Feb. 12 at The National Croquet Center, 700 Florida Mango Road, West Palm Beach.

One is showing a child doing it, put-ting a neat corner on the sheet.Ž Then it was on to production and distribution. Enter Jennifer Jackson, the couples bookkeeper and assistant. We were able to proceed to where we are today because of Jennifers bril-liance on the computer,Ž she said. The inventor insisted on The Tucker being made in the United States. I investigated molding people, and found Prime Molding Technologies in Riviera Beach.Ž The company uses a plastic injection process to create unique prod-ucts. Its not a huge company „ its middle sized. We met with Richard Volpe; he had what I needed,Ž said Mrs. Dioguar-di, a retired New York talent agent. Then it was on to sales, packaging and shipping. Thats one of the best parts of the story, she said. Jennifer told me about Palm Beach Habilitation Center. They have a thrift shop, and the center, where they employ the handicapped, veterans and the dis-abled.Ž We met with Gary Strother. He took us through the entire place „ the pack-ing and shipping areas. These lovely people with beautiful smiles greeted us as they worked. I left with tears in my eyes. I said, Weve got to do this! They must be our factory.Ž It was a win-win on all counts, she said. All these things fall into place. When things work out that I can help somebody else, Im happy.Ž David Lin, the vice president of Palm Beach Habilitation Center, explains they are a training program for people with disabilities. We train them how to pack-age different products for shipping.Ž Workers earn competitive wages based on the industry. Its based on speed and productivity, but the piece rate is based on $10.40 an hour,Ž he said. The center has five or six workers packing up The Tucker; it could change based on orders, however. Mrs. Dioguardis company doesnt need to maintain a warehouse full of inventory because of the two local com-panies. Once made in the Riviera Beach facility, its delivered to the Habilitation Center for packing and bulk distribu-tion. For small individual sales, theyre still mailed out by hand from her home. Sales right now are through Amazon and on the website. We investigated Amazon, and fished out the information about how to get started. Were now in almost every state including Hawaii, Canada, and we just started with the UK.Ž Everything is taking off like greased lightning,Ž she said, laughing. With Ms. Jacksons help, theyve begun to promote The Tucker to the major hotel groups. Lowes Hotels is interested for its housekeeping staff. Theyve responded positively, she said. The St. Regis in New York, and MGM Grand in Vegas are looking at us, and Reno. Were looking at hospitals and assisted living places.Ž Theyre hoping to soon get into retailers like Bed, Bath & Beyond. Response everywhere has been positive. Weve got a lot of thumbs-ups (likes) on Face-book. Im amazed at how its spread.Ž What about taking it to Shark Tank,Ž the TV show where inventors meet investors who can push a product to worldwide instant stardom? I think about Shark Tank. Everybody has asked us, but its much too soon. I dont have a years worth of income to talk about yet,Ž she said. Her financial adviser has an in on the show, but she still isnt ready. Besides, she says, I dont want anything. I just want to open a door.Ž Shed like to give back if she does see a terrific success. She and her 96-year-old husband already are community bene-factors.

Wally Turner | 561.301.2060 BEHIND THE WHEELThree-row efficiency vehicles are hitting their strideMost drivers today remember a time when graduating from the baby seat meant joining the older siblings along the backbench of the family vehicle. We bet there are even plenty of readers who didnt have seatbelts back there. But that doesnt work anymore. After the first few years in a full car seat, its recommended that todays children be given a booster chair until around middle school age. Its also rec-ommended that they dont ride up front where theres direct contact with the airbag. Thus, kids today take up a lot of rear-seat real estate. In fact, families that have two children under the age of 10 can fill the backbench of a large sedan with two safety seats, leaving it difficult to utilize the middle. So families with three or more kids, or those who have a need to carry more than just their own brood, are flocking to three-row vehicles. Minivans and large crossovers/SUVs are the easy answer to this new problem, but not all of us want one. Grandparents only need to transport the whole family when they visit a few weeks of the year. And urban parents probably dont like parking a large SUV. This is where the lat-est crop of three-row midsize crossovers are becoming more useful. The category is nothing new to the market. Mit-subishi has been offering the value-priced, seven-passenger Outlander for over a decade. Chrysler saw the appeal of an effi-ciently packaged three-row crossover and had the Dodge Journey replace the Caravan in 2008 (the larger Grand Caravan continued until this year.) Along with the Kia Sorento, these repre-sent the sub-$30K end of the market, and they all require some added inves-tigation before purchasing. The Chrysler has proven to be the least durable; the Mitsubishi feels like its a generation behind; and the Kia often trades in deep discounts now, that reduce resale value in the future. None of these issues should be deal breakers, but its good to know whats given up for the allure of leaving with extra cash-in-hand. The other end of the spectrum doesnt really serve this part of the market. Premium brands like BMW, Jaguar, Lin-coln, Mercedes and many more have small and midsize crossovers, but their emphasis on providing luxury usually precludes trying to squeeze three rows of seating into a cabin. This leaves the heart of the market with the mainstream brands that come in around $30,000. Its the place where usefulness meets a bit of design and fea-tures flair. And there are plenty of signs that the manufacturers see this segment getting very competitive. Vehicles like the Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander and Hyundai Santa Fe have all been refreshed or totally revamped within the last year. Ford and Nissan have taken the tough SUV image built with the Explorer and Pathfinder, and they are now exploiting the namesakes to make the latest generation of cross-overs feel more adventurous. Volkswa-gen will even be entering the three-row market in 2017 with the Atlas. Its focused on being a family hauler, so it will offer more room than the Touareg, but is priced over $10K less to make it competitive with the rest of the market. The Chevrolet Traverse, Ford Flex, Mazda CX-9 and a few others also fit into this pricing. But they have the wheelbase and length to feel like full-sized vehicles on the road and in the parking lots. The few vehicles mentioned above that have not been rede-signed/refreshed within the last couple of years will either do so or die in 2017. This class is seeking to offer the hippest family haulers around. But for those who dont need to be trendy, minivans offer more space for similar pricing. And because of their efficient use of space and drive-train, many often feel smaller than driv-ing a midsize crossover. But when it comes to the car to pick up the grandkids or the second car for a young family, the full-time versatility of a minivan isnt needed. Instead, theres a growing need for a vehicle that has a third row when need-ed, but folds out of sight when you dont want to look like a mommy mobile.Ž And style is likely as much a factor as legroom, because those little feet in the third row dont even touch the ground yet.

His work has been seen at many American theaters, including The Old Globe in San Diego, Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor and John Drew Theater at Guild Hall in East Hampton, as well as the Irish Repertory Theatre the Irish Arts Center and the York Theatre Company In 1959 Mr. Walton married his childhood sweetheart „ Julie Andrews „ and they had a daughter, Emma Walton Hamilton The couple divorced in 1967 but remain close, with Mr. Walton illustrating several children books co-written by mother-daughter team of Ms. Andrews and Ms. Hamilton.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF DECEMBER 29, 2016-JANUARY 4, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY scott SIMMONS A silver-plated pitcher holds more than memories COLLECTORS CORNERBought: Gannons Antiques & Art, 6521 S. Tamiami Trail, Fort Myers; 489-2211 or Cost: $45 The skinny: The price tag indicated that this pitcher was 90 years old, but it didnt have any of the streamlined Art Deco styling that would have been part of something made in the 1920s. A quick look at the hallmark revealed it was made by James W. Tufts of Boston, a company that closed in 1915. A more likely date for the piece is sometime around the 1880s or 90s. Its silver over copper and has the right amount of patina (those fine marks from years of use) to give it a warm glow. But its the shell motif that makes it stand out for me. The design is vividly detailed. Its beautiful and its timeless „ just like the ocean. Q THE FIND: When I was a boy, my grandmother would make the trek across the old Edison Bridge and up old U.S. 41 to the Shell Factory in North Fort Myers. There, we would peruse table after table of shells, sponges and coral that had been harvested from seabeds around the world. If I was lucky, Grandma might buy me a small shell or one of the plastic toys made from the injection-molding machine they had near some of the tanks of saltwater fish. Wed have ice cream cones or Cokes and return home with our finds of the day. We now know that type of harvesting, in which tons of sand, shell and other products are scraped from the ocean floor, is environmentally devastating. But we were nave.Im never surprised at human fascination with shells „ we were a half-hour at most from Sanibel, which boasts some of the finest beaches in the world for shelling. The pinks and the purples of the coquinas, whelks and other shells always glisten in the sands, especially in the mornings. I remember people using row after row of conch shells as borders for flowerbeds and as hanging pots, with philodendron, air plants and other flora dangling from them. Theyve held an allure for millennia „ just think of Botticellis The Birth of Venus.Ž Yes, the girl on the half-shell. You can see them peeking out in baroque art of the 17th and 18th centuries. The Victorians loved shells, too, and incorporated them in day-to-day items. The Industrial Age meant that even people of modest means could have the glow of silver plate in their homes. I have an 1860s spoon warmer in the shape of a nautilus shell „ it would have held warm water to keep spoons from cooling in the days before central heat. Imagine how exotic those shapes would have been in a day when people rarely traveled beyond the next county or state or even saw an ocean, for that matter. And I have a large collection of 20thcentury shells by the Cambridge Glass Co. in its Crown Tuscan color „ which is a true shell pink. I also have a large clear Cambridge shell bowl that holds something equally precious „ shells my grandparents and I collected over the better part of half a century. I look at those, and I remember trips to the beach and trips to the Shell Factory with my grandmother. I know shed be pleased. Q Silver-plated Victorian pitcher by James W. Tufts.SCOTT SIMMONS/ FLORIDA WEEKLYThis water pitcher by James W. Tufts of Boston was made in the 1880s or ’90s.Silver-plated goods became affordable for the masses around the time of the Indus-trial Age. Pieces such as this would have appealed to middle-class buyers wanting the glow of silver in their homes.




B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF DECEMBER 29, 2016-JANUARY 4, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYforceful waves „ I still can see the total beauty in it. Surfing is an art form that stimulates all the senses: the salty taste of the sea, the sight of beautiful scenery, the touch of the cool foamy water and the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. Internationally known surfing photographer Tony Arruza has been living the dream and raising awareness of the beauty of surfing by traveling around the globe documenting surfing, and recently, the process of making boards. To form his vision, called 15 x 15: 15 Surfboards by 15 Shapers,Ž Mr. Arruza selected award-winning board makers, known as shapers, then collaborated with them to create boards with his photography. He journeyed around the world to shapers workshops, some as far as Australia. In creating these masterful boards, Mr. Arruza is uniting several art forms, as well as fashioning something with the dual function of wall art and riding the waves. These 15 boards are on exhibition along with his photographs documenting the construction process at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. Each surfboard featuring an original photo-graph by Arruza has a different shape that serves different functions, such as one for tricks or traveling. Next to the boards hang dramatic portraits by Mr. Arruza of the boards shaper. As each craftsman worked, Mr. Arruza shot the process, skillfully visually detailing the boards creation. Award-winning shaper Ricky Carroll from Rockledge, featured in the exhi-bition, explained that the board-mak-ing process takes between eight to 10 man-hours, not including drying time. Detailed close-up images of resin drip-ping off the board with the shaper con-centrating on his craft in the background give the viewer a glimpse into the origins of the masterpieces. There were so many fantastic photographs taken of the boardmaking process that needed to be show-cased, so Mr. Arruza decided to create a book. To complement the exhibition and view more behind the scenes, his book 15 x 15Ž is available for purchase and gives the viewer a deeper look into the shaper project. For the exhibition, the whole surfing community got together, and nonsurfers as well, and they appreciated the aesthet-ics of what surfings about ƒ the culture,Ž Mr. Arruza said. And that, to me, was very important to see that. A lot more than the boards, but the understanding that surfing is an art and a culture and its a very aesthetic sport.Ž The photographer started his surfboard project with plans to do only three boards, after discovering a material he could print his images onto the boards encasing them in resin. However, after he saw the completed third board he was so blown away by the incredibly detailed craftsmanship and beauty,Ž he says, that he had to do more. He decided to complete the project with 15 boards by 15 shapers from around the world, from Puerto Rico to Australia. The project is a reflection of his career as a photographer and traveling, as the subject matter on the boards are more than just surfing images yet all from various photographs from Mr. Arruzas exhilarating travels. One board standing tall at a whopping 9 feet is a surfboard proudly showing an impressive image of a huge waterfall called Jungle Fall.Ž It was shaped in Kauai, Hawaii. The surfboard demands your attention, not only because of its impressive size, but because the imagery captivates you with its dreamy scene. With all the gorgeous scenery surrounding the photographer, Mr. Arruza explains that selecting an image for each board was not an easy task and he was challenged to find the right fitŽ for each board. Each board is a different style so selecting the image became a collabora-tion between him and the board shaper. The photograph not only has to fit the style of the board, but Arruza had to compose it in such a way that it would fit the shape. Because he had to crop certain images, he displays the full original pho-tograph next to the surfboard, along with images of the boards creation. The 15 x 15 project pays homage to the handcraftsmanship and gives me a format to display that photography,Ž he says but its also a means to show the creation and collaboration between a shaper handicraftsman and a photogra-pher. I wanted to illustrate that with each board being made.Ž Showcasing an abstracted image of a wave is the only greenŽ board in Mr. Arruzas collection made from eco-friendly Spirare containing a salvaged wood and foam composite. Shaper Kevin Cunningham in Rhode Island created this elegant board called Mutant,Ž and flawlessly describes his craft as making functional art that is designed to get wet.Ž Also on view during this exhibition are panels from the Surf History Muse-um in Lake Park that feature the history of surfing and its beginnings in Palm Beach County. Mr. Arruza describes his art, as a photographer, photographing surfing and photographing waves gives me almost as much pleasure as actually surfing a wave or riding a wave. So its a combination of the aesthetics and the natural aspect of it that really intrigue me and its always been whats guided me the most.Ž After hearing him express his passion I think of the song lyrics from the movie Lilo and StitchŽ „ Theres no place Id rather be than on my surfboard out at sea,Ž and Mr. Arruzas images take me there.

It seems so implausible for a band play-ing this kind of music and traveling the world for 22 years would actually be able to function. But here we are. Were very lucky.Ž Lucky indeed. The group returns Jan. 14 for a show at the Kravis Center, where they have played to full houses in two prior visits to the venue. Lead vocalist China Forbes is on the bill for this show; Pink Martinis other main vocalist, Storm Large, will have a spot on the bill for the centers 25th anniver-sary gala, set for Feb. 11. The musical niche Mr. Lauderdale and Pink Martini have carved out is unlike any other in pop music. The groups music traverses a spectrum that takes in vintage and contemporary pop, jazz, classical and a range of interna-tional styles. The songs are sung in a host of languages „ with Jes dis oui!Ž spanning eight different languages. The musical mix begins to make sense when one learns a little about Mr. Lau-derdales background and upbringing. Im the oldest of four adopted children. My parents were white, but they adopted a multicultural family,Ž he said. My father went back and forth between being a minister and being a plant nurs-eryman. So I spent a lot of time both in the church and also growing up on a plant nursery in Indiana. After church services, I would go up to the piano and pound out the hymns that I had heard during the service. My parents sort of took it as a sign. So I started piano lessons when I was 6,Ž Mr. Lauderdale said. There were sort of six things that really were my childhood soundtrack. They were Ray Conniff, Ray Charles, Roger Miller, the New Christy Minstrels, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the soundtrack to Jesus Christ Superstar. That was my childhood. That coupled with the fact that I studied a couple of different languages and classical music and also loved sort of like show tunes, from like Rogers & Hammerstein, those are the influences. And what you get really is Pink Martini, from all of that.Ž Mr. Lauderdale did not initially see music as a career option. After attend-ing Harvard University, he moved to Portland, Ore., and had an eye on a future in politics. I was working at city hall when I was in high school and even throughout college and beyond college,Ž he said. My goal was really to become mayor of Portland. That was my hope.Ž As part of his preparations to perhaps run for office, Mr. Lauderdale started attending fundraisers for various politi-cal campaigns and progressive causes. He noticed the musical groups hired for these events left a lot to be desired. He saw that as an opportunity to put his musical background to work and formed Pink Martini in 1994 to perform at these events. Soon Mr. Lauderdales political ambitions began to fade and he started envi-sioning a future for Pink Martini that went beyond playing fundraisers. In 1997, Pink Martini released its debut album, Sympathique.Ž The album caught on internationally, and in France the group was nominated for best new artist and the title song was nominated for Song of the YearŽ at 2000s Frances Victoires de la Musique Awards. Since then, nine albums have followed (including a 2010 holiday release, Joy to the WorldŽ). Now, as the group begins touring behind Je dis Qui!,Ž Pink Martini has built a catalog that boasts several gold albums and total album sales of more than 3 million. Je dis oui!Ž (I say yesŽ in French) figures to continue to build on the groups accomplishments. It features a lively global pastiche of original songs (three of which come from the soundtrack to a soon-to-be-released film, Souvenir,Ž featuring French actress Isabelle Hup-pert) and outside tunes ranging from Cole Porters Love For SaleŽ to Kaj Kohla Khan (The Tough Guy with the Crooked HatŽ), a song made famous by the popular Iranian singer/actress Googoosh. Mr. Lauderdale considers Je dis oui!Ž a particularly cheerful album that reflected the positive place he and the band have reached in life and their musical journey. Im happier than Ive been in years. I feel pretty comfortable in my life (right now),Ž Mr. Lauderdale said. So thats reflected in the music. It generally comes out in the music. Also, I mean, walking into the studio, just listening to the songs we were going to record and had the rights to record them and the band was pretty well prepped, so there wasnt a lot of learning on the spot. It was just, it was more of a reflection of music we had been working on and developed.Ž Lauderdale said fans can expect an eclectic and entertaining evening of music at Pink Martinis shows this win-ter. The shows these days are sort of like the greatest hits plus material from the new record. And also its a good time of year to also have holiday material,Ž he said. Theres a lot going on always at these Pink Martini shows. Its always moving, so hopefully nobody will leave feeling unsatisfied.Ž Q MARTINIFrom page 1 Pink Martini Featuring China Forbes>> When: 8 p.m. Jan. 14 >> Where: Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach. >> Cost: $25 and up >> Info: 832-7469 or Thomas Lauderdale has led Pink Martini for 22 years.

IF YOU GO: Dramalogue „ 2 and 7 p.m. Jan. 3 at the Don & Ann Brown The-atre, 201 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. Tickets are $25.

The Kravis Centers 2017 ArtSmart Lunch and Learn program brings a variety of topics to the stage for discussion. Over the years, more than 3,000 people have taken advantage of ArtSmarts continu-ing education classes and lectures, with topics ranging from Marilyn Monroe to Cuban folk music. ArtSmarts Lunch and Learn program kicks off on Jan. 5 with sex therapist, media personality and author Dr. Ruth Westheimer Lee Wolf and Steven Caras will moderate the doctors frank talk about sex. Dr. Westheimers unembarrassed, almost clinical way of talking about private matters made her a huge draw for both radio and television. People were thirsty for honest information, and the diminutive Holocaust survivor was only too happy to oblige. Initially, her 1980s radio show, Sexually Speaking,Ž was considered too intimate and too risky for prime time so it aired at midnight on Sundays. Despite that timeslot, the public responded by tun-ing in in record numbers and Dr. RuthŽ became a household name. The former Israeli Freedom Fighter who had studied at the Paris Sorbonne and New York Citys Columbia Universitys Teachers College was now the nations voice of reason when it came to matters of sex. Dr. Westheimers skill at connecting with her audience was bolstered by her nonjudgmental, matter-of-fact speech and her quirky sense of humor. At nearly 90, she is still funny and lively and holding her own. ArtSmart Lunch and Learn continues with four more events: Judy Garland: You Made Me Love You „ 11:30 a.m. Jan. 23. Lee Wolf and Steven Caras celebrate Garlands legacy, trac-ing the triumphs and tragedies of an Amer-ican icon from 1922 to her early death at age 47 in 1969.

YesJackieŽ takes place in the days after Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedys husband, President John F. Kennedy, was assassi-nated in 1963. To her the time was pain-ful, dealing with not just the loss of her spouse and the father of her children, but also funeral arrangements and the estab-lishment of her husbands legacy. The movies content pivots on an interview Jackie (Natalie Portman) gives to a journalist (Billy Crudup) at her Hyannis Port, Mass., home. Its loosely inspired by a real interview she gave to Life magazines Theodore H. White. Flashbacks of her giving a tour of the White House in 1961 are intercut with her actions immediately fol-lowing the assassination, including what it was like at the hospital, on Air Force One coming home and tell-ing her children their father is dead. With the interviewer sympathetic and accom-modating of her desires, Jackie reveals enough trau-ma to get him to trust her (I tried to hold his head together,Ž she says) and then skillfully frames her husbands CamelotŽ legacy. A cynic might say coercing the journalist was a brilliant piece of manipulation, whereas an opti-mist (or sentimentalist?) will believe this was born out of the grieving emotion of a heartbroken widow. As seen in Jackie,Ž the most difficult task Jackie Kennedy took on prior to this was renovating the White House. Now her world is upside down, and in spite of her searing heartbreak shes still exposed to the public eye and political maneuvering (clearly, not everyone has her best inter-ests at heart). One of the best things about director Pablo Larrains (NoŽ) film is its curiosity: He wants to show us who Jackie was, and how she dealt with all aspects of the assas-sination aftermath. It answers many of the questions weve naturally had for the past 50-plus years, and its endlessly intriguing because of it. That said, its tough to say how much of JackieŽ is true. Noah Oppenheim (AllegiantŽ) wrote an original screenplay for what we see here, meaning its not adapted from previ-ously published material (Mr. Crudups character is credited as The Journalist,Ž not as Mr. White). Furthermore, the films press notes do not reveal a source for the script. A cursory Internet search reveals Mr. Oppenheim extensively researched archival materials and footage from this period, which means at least the broad strokes are true, if not entirely accurate. For example, its known that Jackie asked for books about Abraham Lincolns funer-al from the Library of Congress, and this is consistent with whats in the film. But there are also scenes in which Jackie speaks with a priest (John Hurt), and there are no records that indicate this conversation occurred, nor is there a way to know what Jackie may have said to Bobby Kennedy (Peter Sars-gaard) in private as they both grieved. (In the interest of not being hypocritical, heres my source for this info: Ms. Portman is superb in capturing Jackies walk, talk and essence. Its a difficult performance. Take par-ticular note of the way the actress con-veys Jackies vulnerability and strength, and how even in the hardest of times she had the conviction to fight for what she believed was the right way for her hus-band to be remembered. If only Ms. Portmans performance came in a better overall movie. Like its title character, JackieŽ is a bit scattered and as a result, it struggles to add up to much more than a series of intriguing insights about an heiress. For many, as it was for me, Ms. Portmans performance and this intrigue will be enough. Q dan FILM CAPSULESFences +++1/2 (Denzel Washington, Viola Davis, Jovan Adepo) In 1950s Pittsburgh, Troy (Mr. Washington) is an unhap-py father and husband who blames racism for derailing his promis-ing baseball career. Mr. Washington does double duty as actor and direc-tor, and his performance alongside Ms. Davis is tremendous. Both are shoo-ins for Oscar acting nominations. Rated PG-13.Jackie +++ (Natalie Portman, Billy Crudup, Peter Sarsgaard) Former First Lady Jackie Kennedy (Ms. Portman) speaks with a journalist (Mr. Crudup) about the days following her husbands murder in November 1963. Ms. Portmans perfor-mance and the natural curiosity we have about this time in Jackies life will be enough for most to enjoy it; take note, though, that some of whats on screen is not taken from verified true events. Rated R.Collateral Beauty +++ (Will Smith, Edward Norton, Kate Winslet) Successful ad exec Howard (Smith) loses his daughter and his life falls apart. His friends/colleagues (Nor-ton, Winslet, Michael Pena) then recruit three actors to represent Love (Keira Knightley), Death (Helen Mirren) and Time (Jacob Latimore) to connect with Howard and help any way they can. Its told with the same tone as A Christmas Carol,Ž so its a nice mixture of serious-ness and levity. And you can see the cast loving the material. This is a feel-good tale with a perfectly timed holiday season release. Rated PG-13.La La Land ++++ (Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, J.K. Simmons) Aspiring jazz pianist Sebastian (Gosling) meets aspiring actress Mia (Stone) in modern-day L.A., and the two fall in love while trying to find career success. Writer/director Damien Chazelle (WhiplashŽ) tells the story as a classic Hollywood musical, and the result is absolutely stunning. Rated PG-13.
