A2 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 2-8, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY roger COMMENTARYIn praise of American criticsOne of the pleasures in writing columns is serious conversation, just as one of the pleasures in reading is conversation. Column writing, in fact, requires reading: of other opinions, other minds and experiences, other writers and readers who respond. Maybe thats more than conver-sation; maybe its communion, a sacred sharing. Such conversation does not begin, Nice hat, moron,Ž as one hotshot who emailed me last week may not know „ unless hes a professional fashion critic. In that case, hes an inarticulate bumbler who should find another job. But conversation may begin sharply, like this criticism from a letter arriving the next day: Roger, it seems you just can not let go ... The responsible media, represented by traditional daily newspapers, radio, and television news programs, will present the facts as they are known. You are not seri-ous, are you?Ž That letter, quoting from my column Just the factsŽ (Florida Weekly, Jan. 26), has an inherent merit. It begins a conversation, a communion of sorts. In taking such communion, you the reader share everything you are and know with the life and knowing of a writer. By reading, you join your mind to his or hers. A marriage of agreement is not requisite and probably unlikely. But an agreement to offer what you know and honestly believe „ whether youre doing the reading or the writing „ is key to good conversation. And good conversation lies at the heart or polisŽ (a Greek word) of our public life, our body politic. PolisŽ meant the center of things, to the Greeks. You can converse with humor or grave solemnity. You can educate, entertain, praise or scold. But whatever your style in conversation, you agree to offer the mind and heart you carry, without venom. Love may be defined by such an agreement, as well. In the United States, the lifeblood of our democratic republic is the agreement all of us have to converse. To hear, write and read each other both as Americans and as humans, in relative harmony. Relative harmony may include plenty of disagreement on issues. It also includes the acknowledgement that in conversation, every one of us means well. So in that spirit I embrace the criticism „ the conversation „ of readers. For a decade Ive written columns in this space that won me apologists and sharp critics. I relish the praise. But I celebrate criticism more than praise because criticism is hard: It takes grace, courage, discomfort, disciplined etiquette (you cant fly off the handle), and profound respect, along with knowing. Along with ideas or facts that have some value. A critic respects ideas. He or she acknowledges that you respect them, too. Critics, good ones, take you seriously enough to figure you ought to be criticized. You ought to be corrected, taught, offered another view or sometimes chewed out. This distinction became obvious to me in the context of the two letters last week „ one from a big-mouth bully-boy, the other from a genuine critic. Here they are in full:Subject: Nice hat moronHeres a fact, Rog, Trump is succeeding wildly beyond anyones dreams, and you cant handle it as your sophomoric drivel so effusively spews. Keep trying to spoon-feed your liberal sycophants Rog, youre soon to choke on the success of what a real presi-dent can do. Stick that up your nasty alter-nate liberal ass, you scum sucking commie. Bruceƒ Sorry for the extra email Rog, It just came to me what your moniker should be with that liberal puss of yours, Scooter!!! Definitely, definitely you in one encap-sulating nickname, Roger ScooterŽ Wil-liams, that intrepid journalist defending Libs everywhere! With thoughts as valuable as the price of the rag that he writes for! Chet BC.ŽI like Bruce-Chet-BCs notes for his use of sophomoricŽ (from the Greek words sophos and moros) and sycophantsŽ (from the Greek, sukophantes). But hes no con-versation starter; he has bad manners. I prefer to be addressed, The Magnificent Mr. Scooter.Ž Everybody knows that. By contrast, this is how to be a critic, how to be a politic American, how to begin a heartfelt conversation: Roger, it seems you just can not let go. The responsible media, represented by tra-ditional daily newspapers, radio ... You are not serious, are you? The last-week Womens March on Washington was covered by a majority of print and TV media for hours and hours, while todays March for Life in Washington was carried only by the Catholic channel and a bit by Fox TV. The good old tradi-tional CNN did not televise March for Life but could not resist (the opportunity) to interview anti-life Cher during the March for Life!?! ... So please let go of this stupid tirade about the responsible media. In my 72 years I have never seen more partisan media than today. Milo Karpisek.ŽI can listen to that. I respect it as criticism. Thank you, Mr. Karpisek „ or if you prefer, Magnificent Mr. Karpisek. Let me reply.At a glance, I see National Public Radio, The Washington Post, The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times in a live feed and USA Today in another live feed all covering the event „ the 44th annual, and a one-issue event, unlike the Wom-ens March. That was a once-in-a-lifetime, many-issue, many-city event with crowd-scientists estimating 3 million to 4 million marchers across the United States. NBC, CBS, ABC and CNN all covered the March for Life, too, but youre right „ without the vigor or time they set aside for the Womens March. Is there bias? I acknowledge the possibility and I abhor the bias, if it exists. Also, I thank you for writing. I hope you write again. Yours in American conversation, M.M. ScooterŽ Williams. Q „ Leslie Lillys column will return next week.

Trump has been issuing a stream of executive orders and memo-randa since his inauguration. On Jan. 24, his pronouncements involved the Key-stone XL and Dakota Access pipelines. Both projects were denied or delayed by the Obama administration, each after massive public protests. Now, with the Trump admin-istrations actions, buttressed by a ser-vile Congress under Republican control, fossil-fuel megaproj-ects are getting the green light. But it will take more than the stroke of Trumps pen to quash the vigorous resistance to these two pipelines, or the growing global demand for urgent action to combat climate change. The Dakota Access Pipeline is the 1,100-mile long, $3.8 billion pipeline that would carry fracked oil from the Bak-ken oil fields in North Dakota, through South Dakota and Iowa to Illinois, where it would connect with another pipeline to carry the crude to the Gulf of Mexico. Opponents of DAPL fear a pipeline rupture could poison the Missouri River, which provides fresh water for 17 million people. The center of opposi-tion has been at protest camps on and around the Standing Rock Sioux Reser-vation, where the pipeline is slated to cross the river. The proposed Keystone XL pipeline would carry the worlds filthiest fossil fuels, tar sand bitumen, from Alberta, Canada, across the border into the U.S., also down to the Gulf. On Nov. 6, 2015, after five years of protest against the KXL, President Barack Obama stated that it would not serve the national interest of the United States,Ž effectively killing the project. On Dec. 5, 2016, in a second victory for grass-roots environ-mental activists, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers denied the easement for DAPL to tunnel underneath the Mis-souri River, stopping that pipeline. Trumps executive order on DAPL violates the law and tribal treaties. We will be taking legal action,Ž Stand-ing Rock Sioux Tribe Chairman David Archambault II said in a press release after Trumps actions. Creating a sec-ond Flint does not make America great again.Ž Trumps presidential memoran-dum on DAPL instructs the secretary of the Army to review and approve in an expedited manner ... requests for approvals to construct and operate the DAPL.Ž The same language in the memo about the Keystone XL pipeline is addressed to the secretary of the Army, as well as to the secretary of state and the secretary of the interior. Trumps secretary of state nominee, Rex Tillerson, was formerly the CEO of ExxonMobil, a company that would reap enormous profit from exploitation of Canadian tar sands oil. Trumps energy secretary nominee, Rick Perry, was until recently on the board of Energy Trans-fer Partners, the owner of DAPL. Trumps executive order, Expediting Environmental Reviews and Approvals For High Priority Infrastructure Proj-ects,Ž released alongside the two memo-randa, includes the claim that too often, infrastructure projects in the United States have been routinely and exces-sively delayed by agency processes and procedures.Ž Along with a fourth memo demanding „ without the force of law „ that pipeline construction and repair projects use materials and equipment produced in the United States,Ž this flurry of fiats sets the stage for the fast-tracked revival of both pipelines. It is pretty much a declaration of war against us all out here, not just against Native people, but against anybody who wants to drink water,Ž Winona LaDuke, Native American activist and executive director of the group Honor the Earth, told us on the Democracy Now!Ž news hour. He definitely wants to shove those pipelines down our throats.Ž Bobbi Jean Three Legs, a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Nation, began protesting DAPL before the first resis-tance camp was set up last April. She helped lead a 2,000-mile relay run for native youth, from the Sacred Stone Camp in Cannon Ball, N.D., to Washing-ton, D.C., to draw attention to their strug-gle against the pipeline. Water is LifeŽ is their guiding principle, Mni WiconiŽ [minny wah-chonee] in the Lakota lan-guage. He is waking up a lot of people. A lot of people are really paying attention to the climate change now,Ž Bobbi told us on Democracy Now!.Ž Were never going to back down.Ž Bobbi Jean Three Legs and Winona LaDuke worry about increased violence from the police and National Guard. Bobbi described the situation: Theres still police brutality going on. People are still getting maced. Theyre getting shot. ... Theres over 600 people that have been arrested so far, and it just keeps going up.Ž Her eyes welled up. Right now Im just asking all the youth around the country to stand up. Im asking everyone around the world to stand up with us, wherever you are ... Im afraid that theyre out to kill.Ž „ Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!,Ž a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,400 stations. She is the co-author, with Denis Moynihan and David Goodman, of the newly published New York Times best-seller Democracy Now!: 20 Years Covering the Movements Changing America.Ž They are currently on a 100-city U.S. tour.The next JFKThe work of unraveling President Barack Obamas legacy is underway, but even if the Trump administration and a Republican Congress reverse every last law and regulation, they wont be able to touch the core of it. Obamas enduring legacy will be as a cultural symbol, the first African-American president who represented a current of social change in the country and reflected the values and attitudes of the progressive elite. He will be remembered „ and revered „ by his admirers as his generations JFK. The standards here are largely sty-listic, and Obama checks nearly every box: He was a young president; a photo-genic man with a good-looking family; a symbol of generational change; an ora-tor given to flights of inspiring rhetoric; if not a wit exactly, a facile talker with a taste for mocking the other side. The process is a little like Romans deciding which emperors to make gods after their deaths, depending on their reputations. For Democrats, Lyndon Johnson and Jimmy Carter were too unglamorous and too obviously failures, whereas Bill Clinton gave too much ground to Republicans (and didnt keep his dalliances discreet). Obama won two terms, is as ideologically pure as reason-ably possible, and has cultural staying power. The original myth of Camelot was borne aloft by the tragedy of JFKs assas-sination, which created a suspension of disbelief about the martyred president. Obama isnt a martyr, but his supporters have experienced the election of Donald Trump as a major trauma. One of the root causes of Obamas domestic political failure was the ten-sion between his pitch for himself as a unifying figure and the fact that he was a committed man of the left. He could be one or the other, but not both. He always chose his left-wing politics. His favorite rhetorical crutch was to portray his positions as the centrist path between two extremes, although this was convincing only to people who already agreed with him. His inabil-ity or unwillingness to compromise proved devastating to his party, which got wiped out in 2010, 2014 and most importantly 2016. This puts much of what he accomplished legislatively and unilaterally in jeopardy. Obama the symbol, though, will remain wholly intact. His election in 2008 was a genuinely historic and affect-ing cultural milestone. The country had sent to the White House a man who a few decades prior wouldnt have been allowed to stay in some motels. Attitudes notably shifted to the left during Obamas presidency on highly contested cultural issues. In the space of about seven years, he went from opposing gay marriage to lighting up the White House in rainbow colors to celebrate the Supreme Courts gay-marriage decision. At least temporarily, he discovered a different way to win elections that had almost as much cultural resonance as electoral significance. When and if the so-called coalition of the ascendant rises again, Obama will be remembered as its architect, and an exemplar of the demographic changes behind it. And Obama isnt going away. He will be a memoirist, lecturer and late-night-show guest representing enlightened liberalism in exile, stoking nostalgia and yearning among his supporters. Even as his substantive legacy washes away, the apotheosis will begin.„ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly GOODMAN

Tooth trivia, oral care and more BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationA cats mouth is a fascinating object of study. Its a killing machine, filet knife and hairbrush, all in one. Heres how it works. Kittens are born without teeth and develop 26 deciduous, or baby, teeth, starting with the incisors and followed by the canines and premolars (molars dont come in until adulthood). By the time a kitten is 7 months old, 30 adult teeth, including the missing molars, have made an appearance. But how do those teeth work? Cats arent designed to chew. After killing their prey by biting or crush-ing the neck, spine or throat with their sharp fangs (known as canines), they tear off the meat with their carnassial teeth „ long-bladed molars and premo-lars „ swallow it (bones, feathers and all) and let their digestive juices go to work. Whatever isnt digested exits the system, either through the front end „ regurgitation „ or out the rear, as waste in your cats litter box. The rough feline tongue is an equally important player in the cats mouth. Its sandpaperlike surface is perfect for scrubbing every bit of food off bones. If you were to examine a cats tongue closely (folks, dont try this at home), you would find that its covered with tiny, hooked barbs facing toward the throat. Theyre called filiform papillae, and their job is to help hold prey in place while cats eat. Cats also employ the tongue in the grooming process. Those same barbs effectively remove dead hairs and debris from the cats coat. If your cat has a few hairs out of place, the tongue serves as a convenient built-in hairbrush to, er, lick them into shape. Notice that your cat licks herself clean right after a meal? Instinct tells her to remove food odors that might excite the interest of predators. If your cat licks you after you get out of the shower, she might be trying to restore your normalŽ smell. One drawback to the tongues design is that cats cant spit things out. Because they face the throat, those hooks direct loosened fur (or anything else the cat swallows) down the hatch. Later it comes back up again in the form of a hairball (known scientifically as a trichobezoar). The tongue is also an essential factor in how cats drink water. Have you ever thought about that before? Top scien-tists have, and they used high-speed photography to document the process. When they drink, cats curve the upper side of their tongue downward. As the tip of the tongue touches the waters surface, the cat rapidly pulls it upward, bringing a column of water along for the ride. The jaws close and the cat swal-lows. In the space of a second, cats can lap water four times, and the tongues speed during the process has been clocked at 1 meter per second. You lean in to love on your cat and suddenly you jerk away, appalled. That breath! It smells like hes been swig-ging tuna juice straight from the can. That stink can be from periodontal disease or from cat cavities, known as oral resorptive lesions. Veterinarians say that half of all cats have some type of dental disease by the time they are 4 years old. That doesnt mean its normal. A cat whose breath smells is the victim of gum disease or some other health problem. You know the drill: Brush your cats teeth daily, starting in kittenhood, to help prevent infection and nasty brown tartar buildup „ which is not just ugly but also harbors bacteria. A professional dental cleaning under anesthesia will help to keep his teeth white and his mouth healthy. Q A cat’s bad breath is a common complaint among pet owners. And the tartar buildup on teeth makes veterinarians gnash theirs.

HEALTHY LIVING If you are a victim of domestic abuse — you are not in it aloneDonna looked at her watch and panicked. It was after 10, and the dinner check hadnt come yet. Donna had a sinking feeling that she would be in BIG trouble with her husband, Ron, if she didnt get home right away. Although Ron had said it was fine with him if Donna joined her girlfriends for a night out, and had even INSISTED that she go, Donna now second-guessed herself. She worried that she should never have gone out tonight in the first place. In fact, Ron had been preoccupied and quiet all week. Not a good sign. When Ron became distant, Donna knew something was up. But was this a test? Should she have canceled on her own? Donna hardly ever went out with her friends anymore. Throughout their marriage, Ron had belittled Donna and made her doubt her intelligence and self-worth. Hed call her insulting, cruel names and shared his derogatory thoughts about her family and closest friends. She had learned never to make plans or decisions without Rons approval. And, sure enough, when Donna got home that night, Ron was waiting in the living room. Hed been drinking and had that look on his face that Donna had come to dread: a tight smile that covered up a growing rage. Donna knew better than to say anything. When Ron was in this mood, anything could set him off. Donna had thought things had improved since the incident last month when Ron had smashed her favorite vase to smithereens and hed shoved her so roughly that shed fallen and twisted her ankle. Donna had cried hysterically, and the children had been terrified. Shed loaded the children in the car and driven an hour to her mothers house, determined to leave Ron for good. But, Ron had begged her to come home and had been so loving and contrite, swearing he would never hurt her again. So once again, Donna had gone against her better judgment and had felt sorry for Ron, returning home to her marriage. For several weeks, life had been idyllic, just like the beginning of their relationship. Ron could be so attentive and could make her feel so special. But, tonight, when Ron reacted to her like this, Donna was frightened that things would once again spiral out of control. None of us would ever wish to believe that we could be in an abusive relation-ship. And we certainly might feel alone and frightened holding onto this knowl-edge „ because the notion of confiding this truth to another person could be very embarrassing. While this may be a topic that can be too painful to consider, consider it we must. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence: Q On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the U.S. During one year, this equates to more than 10 mil-lion women and men. Q One in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have been victims of some form of physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime. Q One in 5 women and 1 in 7 men have been victims of severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime. The U.S. Department of Justice defines domestic violence as a pattern of abusive behavior in any relationship that is used by one partner to gain or maintain power and control over another intimate part-ner. Domestic violence can be physical, emotional, sexual, economic or psycho-logical actions or threats of actions that influence another person. This includes any behaviors that intimidate, manipu-late, humiliate, isolate, frighten, terrorize, coerce, threaten, blame, hurt, injure or wound someone. Although we would think that it should be quite obvious that a person would know he or she is in an abusive relationship, sadly, the reality can be confusing. Abusive relationships often begin in a passionate, magical way „ with tremen-dous intensity and chemistry. The rela-tionship may progress very quickly to an exclusive committed understanding. Very quickly, there may be an expecta-tion that the abusers partners modify their relationships and belief systems to conform to the wishes of the abuser. Abusers may show signs of jealousy and control, and may attempt to isolate their partners from trusted friends and family. Theyre often hypersensitive to slights and rejection, and may have a penchant for blaming everyone and everything for their ills. In fact, the manipulation and demeaning behavior can be quite subtle. The victim may feel like he or she is walking on eggshells or exaggerating things that should be let go. These victims part-ners are often quite skilled in deflecting responsibility, and diffusing the serious-ness of the behavior „ implying that the conflict is the victims fault. Abusive behavior takes a serious toll on a per-sons self-esteem. Its not uncommon for a victim to feel quite helpless, and demoralized that there could be any encouraging options for a better life. Whats particularly disturbing is that many abusers are quite skilled in pro-fessing love (and cementing the bond) when they become aware that their partners are gaining clarity about the dysfunction and might be considering leaving the relationship. But predictably, once the victim has regained confi-dence, and the status quo is restored, the abusive behavior is likely to increase. According to Sara Walsh, LCSW, director of the Rosenberg Domestic Abuse Program at the Alpert Jewish Family & Childrens Service in West Palm Beach, the fictionalized vignette above charac-terizes a pattern of domestic violence in which Donna and Ron are entrenched, whereby a partner exerts power and control in a cycle that typically has dis-tinct phases that are regularly repeated and may escalate to alarming extremes. Ms. Walsh explains that most relation-ships can have abusive moments, but there are some relationships that are characterized by an escalating pattern of abusive, demeaning behavior that can deteriorate to emotional and physical battering. If you are in an abusive relationship, or believe that a friend or family mem-ber is at risk, you dont have to feel that you are in it alone.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 2-8, 2017 NEWS A11 phil FLORIDA WRITERSKeep believing, keep pretending, keep practicingQ I am Jim HensonŽ by Brad Meltzer. Illustrated by Christopher Eliopoulos. Dial Books for Young Readers. 40 pages. Hardcover, $14.99. It is often more difficult to review a short book than a long book. Such is the case with a fine childrens book like the latest in Brad Meltzers Ordinary People Change the World series. Ear-lier titles in the series have includ-ed child-friendly biographies of Amelia Earhart, Jackie Robinson, Lucille Ball and Martin Luther King Jr. These inspirational narratives written for children from 5-8 years old invite youngsters to dream bigger and to pur-sue their dreams energetically. Now Mr. Meltzer gives a voice to Jim Henson as if Mr. Henson was writing a memoir. He offers characterizing details of Mr. Hensons youth: drawing birds, enjoying family jokes and the laughter they provoked, going to the movies with friends and then re-enacting the movies with their own props and costumes. His grandmother got him involved in art projects. Early on, Mr. Henson had a propensity for creating monsters that were sort of laughable. He loved performance and a degree of disguise. What might have seemed like frivolous indulgences were encour-aged, allowing him to find his way to a notable career in television and movies. One influence was Edgar Bergen, a ventriloquist whose invention, Charlie McCar-thy, seemed human to young Hen-son. As a teenager and young adult, Mr. Henson had early experi-ences in local television that set him on the road to universal acclaim. This show was Sam and Friends,Ž in which his highly expressive Muppets first came alive. Mr. Hensons imagination was the great gift he continued to develop. The full flourishing of the Muppets, through The Muppet ShowŽ and Sesame Street,Ž required team-work: writers, actors, puppet builders and more. But the key ingredient that allowed imagination to become fully realized was practice. Its not enough, Mr. Meltzer tells his readers, to be a dreamer. The practice „ the hard work „ is as important as the dream. Mr. Henson saw his work as a way of bringing people together. Author Meltzer has him say: I wanted our audience to know that despite all the chaos, and despite our differences, there is nothing more fun than being together.Ž And, The more we performed . the more fun we had, and the more my dreams grew, bringing millions of people together.Ž This was the magic of Jim Henson, creator of Oscar the Grouch, Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Bert & Ernie, Big Bird and so many others. This empowering book is also a visual knockout. The illustrations by Chris-topher Eliopoulos have just the right cartoonish quality to capture Mr. Hensons world and his world view. The mesh between the easy, conversational voice the author invents and the images created by Mr. Eliopolous is perfect. The lessons are amusingly presented, and the enthusiasm should motivate youngsters „ as long as they remember the parts about practicing and about Mr. Hensons occasional setbacks. Well, I dont want to write a review longer than the book. What Mr. Meltzer is doing in this series is important. Try this medicine on your children and grandchildren. It goes down easy. About the author Brad Meltzer is The New York Times bestselling author of Heroes for My Son,Ž Heroes for My DaughterŽ and a num-ber of suspense novels for adults, including the thrillers The Inner Circle,Ž The Presidents ShadowŽ and The House of Secrets.Ž He is also the host of the History Channel television shows Brad Meltzers DecodedŽ and Brad Meltzers Lost His-tory.Ž He lives in Aventura with his wife and their three children.

A14 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 2-8, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYgroup of pediatric professionals at the Nicklaus Childrens Palm Beach Gar-dens Outpatient Center in Legacy Place. He receives rehabilitation treatment there twice a week. The unique thing about Legacy Place is that the therapists talk to each other,Ž Ms. Gutierrez said. They did a plan of care for me. They were really ahead of the game.Ž The high-quality healthcare provided at the center was made possible by funding from the Nicklaus Childrens Health Care Foundation, the primary beneficiary of The Honda Classic. Spe-cialized service in the field of therapeu-tic medicine, as well as in the areas of endocrinology, gastroenterology, juve-nile diabetes and more, has been a game-changer not only for Jack but also for other children in the community. Being a special-needs mom, sometimes its very lonely, and nobody really comprehends what you go through,Ž Ms. Gutierrez said. Your therapist really becomes your friend. I cant tell you how much it means to me to be part of a team like that.Ž The Honda Classic, an annual PGA Tour stop that returns this month to PGA Nationals Champion Course, operates as a nonprofit and donates millions of dollars to charity. The 2016 tournament resulted in $3.2 million in proceeds, $1 million of which went to the foundation to support its mission of giving families access to advanced pediatrics focused on the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases and illnesses. Its one of the great things about the PGA Tour,Ž said Ken Kennerly, execu-tive director of The Honda Classic. Our profit is, in essence, what we give to charity. Luckily, weve been able to increase our contribution not only to Nicklaus Childrens but to other orga-nizations.Ž When the tournament moved to the resort 10 years ago, it awarded $505,000 to charity. In 2010, it broke the $1 mil-lion mark, and in 2013, it broke the $2 million mark Last year, it broke the $3 million mark. Its a real testament to how the tournaments gone,Ž Mr. Kennerly said. This year, weve already announced Tiger Woods, which is phenomenal. The buzz in the community is at an all-time high. Pending the weather, and pending the leaderboard, I think were going to see another record-breaking year.Ž The Honda Classic kicks off Feb. 16 at The Gardens Mall with a pre-party. Ticket prices of $50 per person go directly to The Honda Classic Cares, the tournaments philanthropic arm. On Feb. 20, the pro-am begins a weeks worth of activities both on and off the course. The first round starts Feb. 23. The awards ceremony Feb. 26 will crown the 35th winner of the popular event. I think a lot of the energy you feel, weve created at the tournament,Ž Mr. Kennerly said. Everyone seems to be having a good time. I guess the big take-away for us is that even though were an event, were a business, as well. Were in business to make money to give to charity.Ž The foundation used last years $1 million gift to launch a capital campaign for a new pediatric emergency wing at Jupiter Medical Center. The endeavor, which includes creating eight treatment rooms in addition to a dedicated waiting area, aims to ease the stress associated with traditional emergency rooms and offer an anxiety-free environment for the smallest of patients. Construction has not started yet, but the plan is to begin to build out that unit,Ž said Patty McDonald, president and CEO of the foundation. In all, The Honda Classic Cares has granted nearly $4.3 million to the foun-dation since 2004. Weve been able to put those funds to use to allow us to expand pediatric care,Ž Ms. McDonald said. What were trying to do here is really make an impact.Ž The foundation has.I have mothers stop me in the grocery store to tell me, Thank you so much for what youve done,Ž said Bar-bara Nicklaus, its founder and chair-woman. When you know that youve helped one family, you know it made it all worthwhile.Ž The Palm Beach Gardens and Jupiter centers represent two of more than one dozen locations Nicklaus Childrens Hospital, formerly Miami Childrens Hospital, has in South Florida. Its a dream that Jack and I always had,Ž Mrs. Nicklaus said of herself and her golf-legend husband. We said if we are ever in a position to help someone, we want it to be children.Ž Q CAREFrom page 1 Schedule of events for 2017 Honda Classic>> Feb. 16 — 7-10 p.m. Kickoff party, The Gardens Mall. $50 admission charge per person, with all proceeds bene ting The Honda Classic Cares charitable initiatives. >> Feb. 20 — 12:30-5 p.m. The Honda Classic Pro-Am (Champion Course, PGA National) >> Feb. 21 — All day.

WEEK OF FEBRUARY 2-8, 2017 | A18 WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY BUSINESS BRANCHING OUT Local sub mogul Jon Smith takes his company to the next level via franchises BY JAN NORRISjnorris@” Robert Perconti, a retired investment adviser, has never owned a restaurant and knows only that he likes good food, as any good New Yorker, he says. Whats he doing jumping in to buy the first franchises for one of West Palm Beachs favor-ite sub shops? I was looking for a way to occupy my time. I retired young, and looking for investment opportunities,Ž he said. The opportunity presented itself with Jon Smith. Im the first franchise owner of Jon Smith Subs.Ž Mr. Perconti bought the Wellington franchise after a great deal of research. First, into the company selling the franchises, United Franchise Group. Its also based in West Palm Beach,Ž he said. They never really wanted to be in any type of food franchising. But their employees eat there, and they were familiar with Jon Smith. So when the opportunity presented itself, they took it.Ž That told him the sub shop will likely do well. They have thousands of brands and sell all over the world,Ž he said. The similarities between UFG and his company prompted Jon Smith to look into them. Theyre a 30-year-old company like us, and on the corporate end, similar to a momand-pop. Theyve had some of the same employees for 10, 15, and 20 years,Ž Mr. Smith said. The sons, nephews, and cous-ins work for them.Ž With thousands of brands, Jon Smith Subs will be their first food enterprise, he said. Were really excited. The fit, I thought, was just perfect.Ž The deal to sign with the franchise broker was nine months in the making. His decision to sell the brand to others came after careful thought, Mr. Smith said. Were just too good of a business not to grow. Were really a full restaurant that sells subs. We prepare almost everything from scratch. Were unique in that way. Its just bread, meat and cheese until we make it dif-ferent,Ž he said. Franchisees will be held to a formula for the subs and buy from Sysco Foods. When franchisees buy products, theyll use the exact same code. There will be no ability for franchisees to change any product.Ž They can tweak a menu, but it still has to ““We’re just too good of a business not to grow. We’re really a full restaurant that sells subs. We prepare almost everything from scratch. We’re unique in that way.

That, too, is what attracted Mr. Perconti to the product: the standards that never vary. To test what he was buying, Mr. Perconti went into the Wellington Jon Smith Subs and ordered the whole menu, to see what hed keep or remove from the menu. I told them to bring me one of everything. There are 40 things on the menu. There wasnt anything I didnt like. I walked out of there so full. But, I already had my favorite,Ž he said. It is the Steak Bomb, the biggest seller in the store. Its marinated steak, sliced, with peppers, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, and Provolone cheese. Oh, and bacon. And mayonnaise.Ž Except for the cheese and mayo, the ingredients are grilled together on a flat-top grill, and put on the bread baked by the stores commis-sary. Its served hot. Its by far the No. 1 seller,Ž he said. People come in and order a 6…inch, and then are sorry they didnt get the 12-inch. Its so good.Ž He did ask why they didnt include maybe another ounce of meat or other foods, but was told its too stuffed to get anything else inside it. Its too full!Ž he said. Mr. Perconti owned the Wellington store less than 30 days before buying another in nearby Royal Palm Beach. Im currently looking at other locations on the Treasure Coast. I have looked at sites in Port St. Lucie, Jensen Beach, Stuart. My goal is to really build them out and have them everywhere. I think its a fabulous product. Theres no freezer in any of the res-taurants „ its all fresh food, made to order. Its Jon Smiths commitment to his product.Ž He says its unique in the business. Nobody else out there does what we do. Theres no processed foods. Con-sumers are getting smart about their food. They know when they go into a fast-food chain theyre getting garbage. Nothing is fresh „ its premade, precut and processed food.Ž Besides a good product, he said, its all about the numbers. Im a Wall Street guy. I know how to do the numbers, and this stood out.Ž Mr. Smith said a franchise costs $29,500, plus any build-out necessary. That depends on each location,Ž he said. Theres a solid reputation to bank on, Mr. Perconti said. Jon Smith Subs has been around for 32 years in the West Palm Beach area. You cant go anywhere without hearing about Jon Smith,Ž he said. The franchises are now being sold around the country; with investors in Chicago, Miami and the Carolinas look-ing into them, Mr. Perconti said. But locally, Ill keep buying them up until they cover the area,Ž he said. I want to lock them in on this coast.Ž As for Mr. Smith, hes not throwing out any predictions on how the shops will do elsewhere, foreign or domestic sites. A Nobel Prize winner, Niles Bjorn, had a great quote: Its hard to make predictions, especially about the future. What I know is it takes several years to become an overnight success. Bottom line: I love my employees. All I care about is the food. So well see.Ž Q JON SMITHFrom page 18 Name: Lawrence “Larry” P. Rochefort Title: Partner/chair of Akerman’s Litigation Practice GroupCity of business: West Palm BeachBY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@” oridaweekly.comLawrence LarryŽ Rochefort was recently recognized by Benchmark Lit-igation as a local litigation star for his outstanding client service in general commercial litigation. Benchmark is a guide to law firms and attorneys in the United States and Canada. This year, Mr. Rochefort was one of seven lawyers from Akermans Litiga-tion Practice Group (which has more than 350 litigators across 24 offices), to receive top honors. Benchmark is such a standard in our industry,Ž he said, adding how honored he is to have earned the designation every year since 2014. Its very com-petitive.Ž Mr. Rochefort has more than 20 years experience litigating business disputes in state and federal court and in arbitra-tion. My practice focuses on representing financial institutions, developers, insur-ers, and retailers in real estate, lending, insurance and other business disputes,Ž Mr. Rochefort said. My expertise involves working with banks, whether defending against lender liability claims or handling complex litigation.Ž He said he enjoys the variety of work he encounters and, despite being busy with administration, he gets into the courtroom as much as he can. I enjoy that aspect of the practice,Ž he said. I have a passion for debating things. I enjoy the back and forth and advocating on behalf of my clients.Ž As Akermans Litigation Practice Group chairman, Mr. Rochefort was the driving force behind the new Akerman Data Law Center, a technology-driven, data privacy and security law product considered to be the most comprehen-sive inventory of U.S. data and privacy laws/regulations available on the mar-ket today. The center supports clients across all industries that are vulnerable to regulatory scrutiny and cyber-attacks, including large enterprises in the retail, banking, insurance and healthcare sec-tors. Lawrence LarryŽ P. RochefortAge: 53 Where I grew up: Detroit until middle school and then my family and I moved to Hollywood, Fla. Where I live now: Jupiter Education: B.A. with high honors from Florida Atlantic University and J.D. from the University of Miami School of Law as a member of the Order of the Coif. What brought me to Florida: To be closer to family. My job today: Chair of Akermans Litigation Practice Group, a leading team of trial lawyers advising compa-nies in complex litigation and arbitra-tion across the United States and Latin America. My first job and what it taught me: I have spent most of my legal career at Akerman. As a young lawyer, I received the best advice from one of my clients. We had just achieved a great result on a case so I emailed my client about the news. My client called me immediately and said, Really?! You sent me an email about good news? Pick up the phone, we dont get enough opportunities to cel-ebrate!Ž The idea of email has become so impersonal. This advice has shaped the way I interact with clients and my colleagues. A career highlight: I was defending a private landowner in an eminent domain trial. The state made an under-valued offer for a property my client was planning to develop and our team fought vigorously to secure the maxi-mum compensation. I was a young law-yer at the time and I can still remember the rush of gratification I felt when the jury came back in my clients favor. What I do when Im not working: Family time. You will most likely find me walking our goldendoodles, Charlee and Peyton, on carpool duty, golfing or cheering for my kids from the stands „ my younger daughter, Maggie, stars on her schools varsity soccer team, and my oldest son, Kyle, plays defense for Oxbridge Academys football team. I am also very passionate about community work. I serve on the Board of the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County, the Board of the American Nystagmus Net-work and I am a member of the Ameri-can Diabetes Association. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: Relationship building is crucial to being a success-ful lawyer. When you can develop a business relationship into a personal relationship, it creates a deeper, longer lasting relationship. One thing Akerman excels at and that I focus on in particu-lar, is helping my clients in any aspect of their lives. Clients are human beings too and they have day-to-day needs out-side of the workplace. When they know they can rely on you about things other than work, then the work piece becomes easy. About mentors: Jim McCann taught me not to rush to judgment and to think outside the box in solving our clients legal problems. Q MOVING ON UP“I have a passion for debating things.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 2-8, 2017 REAL ESTATE A21 BEHIND THE WHEELFiat 500X is a tasty remix with Italian flairCars are often like recipes. Take similar ingredients, then substitute some regional flavor and the results can be two distinct products that still share many common pieces. Its the difference between Yankee bean soup and pasta fazoli. And the Fiat 500X is doing the same in the car world. Last year we tested the Jeep Renegade, and even mentioned that the Fiat 500X is built at the same Italian factory. But just because these two vehicles are joined at the hip from birth until they get off the cargo ship, does not mean they are the same crossover. The Fiat 500X is an exercise in extending a singular vision. The original Fiat 500 has an iconic design that made it instantly endearing when the retro car was brought to the U.S. in 2010. So to get the XŽ crossover, they took the sub-compact dimensions and super-sized it. That meant making the cute Fiat 500 taller and wider. Plus, there was a new set of rear doors and cargo space to add behind them. The result is something beefier, but the DNA is still quite clear „ sort of like the difference between a poodle and a labradoodle. Inside, the gain in size makes a huge difference. The dash still matches the exterior color in a very stylish way, but now theres more space so that the climate control, gearshift, and radio display do not feel squashed together. Theres real space in the back to carry a few extra family and friends, and the cargo area is surprisingly useful for the small crossover class. And since the 500X only looks like its economy-mind-ed sibling, it comes with plenty of nice options that arent available on the Fiat 500. It includes, power seats, dual zone climate control and a rear view camera. Upper trim levels have interesting features like European-inspired leather and a dual pane sunroof. All of this cre-ates a very comfortable and fashionable atmosphere. But all of these extra fea-tures come with an extra cost. So while the base model is $20,995, anyone hav-ing fun with the option sheet can easily take the price over $30K. The result is an extremely comfortable 500X with all-wheel drive, but that might not be the best target market for most people. On the road is where the Fiat 500X will find most of its fans. As we noted with the Jeep Renegade, it makes for a fine small four-wheel drive vehicle because the motor seems to want to emphasize low-geared torque over all-out speed. The 500X has the same powertrain combos (1.4-liter turbo mated to a six-speed man-ual transmission and a more powerful 2.4-liter that only gets a nine-speed auto-matic) but the feeling is quite different. The Jeep is fortified with extra offroad packaging, which also adds weight. Thus, with comparable trim levels, the 500X is always the more sprightly choice. That makes the Fiat a little bit quicker, and more importantly, it feels faster than the Jeep because the engine isnt working as hard when accelerat-ing to highways speeds. So the goal for most people looking at the 500X is likely going to be about keeping the weight (i.e., options) down to maximize the fun. Plus, the steering and suspension are set more to European car standards, instead of the Jeeps American 4x4 prowess. It means the 500X is not as capable as an off-road machine, but for the majority of us who dont leave the pavement that often, this is the more exciting one to drive. The Fiat 500X is not the fastest, largest, or most economical of the compact crossovers. But what it does have going for it is an intoxicating mix of popu-lar ingredients that result in genuine appeal. Like Guy Fieri, the Fiat 500X does enough to proudly flaunt its Italian heritage mixed with American flair. And that passion, more than anything else, creates a true attraction.

Flagler Museum kicks off month of lectures, concerts BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@” oridaweekly.comThe Flagler Museums 2017 Whitehall Lecture Series is always an anticipated affair because it attracts all-star academ-ics and authors to Palm Beach. The lectures are bundled under a common theme, and this year the dis-cussion is on the metaphysical world and the events that changed Americans spiritual perceptions and practices. Five experts will look at the belief sys-tems that prevailed during the Gilded Age, roughly from 1870 to 1900, and the enlightenment that followed, looking at the exotic, the scientific, the forward-thinking and the mystical. Mitch Horowitz kicks off the series at 3 p.m. Feb. 5 with the lecture Mystic America: Occult, Metaphysics and Spirituality in the Gilded Age.Ž The PEN Award-win-ning historian will speak broadly about the occult and metaphysical movements that swept American culture in the late 19th century. Lyn Millner follows Mr. Horowitz with a lecture about her book, The Allure of Immor-tality: An Ameri-can Cult, a Florida Swamp, and a Ren-egade Prophet,Ž at 3 p.m. Feb. 12. Ms. Milner will tell the dramatic story of the Koreshans, a group in search of Utopia who settled south of Fort Myers in 1894 with charismatic leader Cyrus Teed, who practiced mind cures, faith-healing, and electro-therapy. Ms. Milner, whose work has appeared in The New York Times and USA Today, also teaches journalism at Flori-da Gulf Coast Uni-versity. On Feb. 19, Brian C.

I remember how we would get up early on a Saturday and drive south to Miami Shores for the South Florida Depression Glass Clubs show before heading on down for the D.S. Clark show in Coconut Grove. Wed stop for dinner somewhere in Coral Gables before heading across the bay for Lou Barons Original Miami Beach Antique Show, which drew more than 1,000 dealers from around the world. That show was open until 10 on Saturdays, so we had plenty of time to score a few finds before heading back to Palm Beach County, where wed rest up for Sundays fun at the West Palm Beach Antiques Festival. Back then, the West Palm Beach show routinely attracted 1,500 dealers, who filled all the expo buildings and adjoining fields and tents. The D.S. Clark show is long gone and because of construction on the Miami Beach Convention Center, the Miami Beach show is now west of Miami at the fairgrounds. But the Depression glass show, which moved to Pompano Beach, is still going strong, as is the West Palm Beach Antiques Festival. All three huge expo buildings will be full of fabulous antiques and vintage collectibles from all over the world,Ž said Kay Puchstein, who along with her husband, Bill, promotes the West Palm Beach show. Many return year after year, she said, citing Dee De Corey and her husband, Bob. The Coreys have made a name for themselves in innovative lighting applications over the years and this year is no different,Ž she said. This year, they are concentrating on drop shower chandeliers with elegant gold Aurene pulled feather shades.Ž Mr. Corey also specializes in antique lighting repair and restoration. Theyve come to the show since 1989 „ three years longer than I have. I liked the show enough that I was a monthly vendor there in the late 90s and again in recent years. Even the monthly shows, with several hundred dealers, are about the largest in Florida. But the February extravaganzas bring together dealers from around the country, and with them comes fresh merchandise. Youll never know what youll find.I promise you this: Youll find me there, shopping at least. I also hope to make it to the South Florida Depression Glass Show and to say hi to my mom and her friends at the Bear & Doll Show & Sale, also set for the same weekend in Palm Springs. I guess its better to have too much to do than to have too little!

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 2-8, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYThe two-character play follows the rela-tionship between writer Ruth Steiner, who gained fame in her 20s with a book of short stories and is now a professor of writing. Among her fans is student Lisa Mor-rison, who becomes her assistant and follower. Lisa wins kudos for a book of short stories, then pens a first novel thats based on Ruths affair with a famous poet. Ruth isnt happy, but Lisa had followed her advice to not stifle her own creative impulses because she might hurt someone elses feelings. So is it really a betrayal? Thats the question the play poses. You can read the play as outsider and choose sides, I guess, but since Im play-ing Lisa, I need to focus on how I think that shes right or at least not wrong in what shes done,Ž said Keira Keeley, whos making her Dramaworks debut. In the beginning, the two women are very different. Ruth is very established and very sure of herself. Theres no self-con-sciousness about her. Not a lot of fil-ter, no filter, I think,Ž said Anne-Marie Cusson, whos making her Dramaworks debut as Ruth. In the beginning, Lisa is starstruck.Ruth is my literary idol. I say at one point, Being here sitting with you is like a religious experience,Ž Ms. Keeley said. It starts off with, Oh, my God, Im really here, and this is her teacup, and wanting to please her and wanting to be in a room with her and holding my own.Ž Dramaworks produced Mr. Margulies Pulitzer Prize-winning Dinner With FriendsŽ a few years ago. As with that play, the material in Collected StoriesŽ is quite heady. Its very stimulating. Playing with words. The tone of the rehearsal room is buoyant with possibility, which is so filling and a great place to play and explore,Ž said Ms. Cusson. Because its about words, we riff on that, we have a lot of humor. Its a great team, a fantastic team to play with. Because its words, which I l ove, to live in that world is a real privilege.Ž The language Mr. Margulies uses is rich. Theyre literary people and very educated. They like discussing and debating and arguing. Its very intellectual,Ž Ms. Keeley said. But the conversation is not all talk. There are a lot of places that its just silence. Its a very high tempo piece then you sit in a silence that is very filled. Its very fun to play speak, speak, speak, speak and then no motion, no words „ just that relationship. It goes over six years. The ability to be silent in a room with someone tells a big story,Ž she said. Ms. Cusson agreed.Very judicious use of silences, earned silences,Ž she said. These silences speak to the development of the womens relationship. I know when to wait, just to be quiet, and let Ruth continue on, to wait for more. Shes got something else,Ž Ms. Keeley said. As opposed to the beginning where I just want to fill those silences. I know when to be quiet, patient, let it come out of her.Ž Those silences are almost like the rests composers build into music. Its appropriate that director Paul Stancato is known for leading and cho-reographing big musicals. Its very much like music. Its just me onstage in a tight spot. We rehearsed it a couple of times and Paul, the director, said we have to score this like music. We have to decide where you take your breaths and where it rolls,Ž Ms. Keeley said. Here, Mr. Stancato scales things down.Usually I do these massive musicals and youre choreographing and youre having to manipulate 30 people. Here, you just have to get out of their way because theyre so damned talented,Ž he said. Youre just going to nudge a little this way and that way and theyre going to find it.Ž Smaller doesnt equal simpler.Theres something to be said about a two-hander when you first read it. You think at first its going to be easy, and I do that in quotes, but its not,Ž Mr. Stancato said. Theres so much rich material and subtext and the balance and power that shifts. And you have to excavate how thats going to play out so your audience can see the waxing and waning of how these ladies exist.Ž He is happy with his cast.They each find the minutia of these characters and theyre really diving down because I wont be satisfied with your stock emotion of happy, sad, angry, funny. This play is like an onion. Its all about the layers, and you really have to peel back the layers to find out who these women are and what makes them tick and what makes them go off when a line is spoken to them,Ž he said. The women evolve over the plays sixyear timeframe. Over the course of six years, we become more comfortable with each other and become like best friends and colleagues and equals,Ž Ms. Keeley said. The team was in its first week of rehearsals when its members talked about the show. We have often used the peeling back the onion metaphor. Because there are just two of us, its very intense. Because its so well written, theres a lot to track and specify as the play goes on,Ž Ms. Cusson said. That includes marking the passing of time. There are certain points to watch in the play, said Mr. Stancato. When we do hit those guideposts through the play, you look at Lisa and say, Wow, shes really come a long way.Ž But so does Ruth.If I do my job correctly, the audience is watching this relationship mature and go through its bumps and bruises and learning whether it can withstand it,Ž Mr. Stancato said. The actresses set the stage for each scene change in what Mr. Stancato describes as a bit of a dump show.Ž Six years for someone in her 20s is a huge time. When youre in your 20s, 10 years seems like a lifetime,Ž Mr. Stan-cato said. We really want audiences to feel the time passing.Ž And to acknowledge the characters inner struggle. The ebb and flow and power being shifted back and forth, feelings being hurt and being mended,Ž he said. Each woman is a protagonist, at least in her own way. There is no villain in this piece,Ž Mr. Stancato said. I think the villain is life. The villain is society and how society dictates what a success may be or what an unsuccessful person may be.Ž Q COLLECTEDFrom page 1 “Collected Stories”>> When: Runs Feb. 3-March 5.

But this one is right down the middle. Its not so spicy that people will say, Oh my goodness, this is too hot. I think the guests will really like it. Its freaking awesome.Ž Super nachos and regular ones will sate snackers. A variety of burgers „ including one topped with pulled pork, and one with blue cheese „ are on the menus, along with kebabs. Well have a separate stand and grill for those. Pork kebabs, chicken and beef.Ž For those with a sweet tooth, funnel cakes, fried oreos, and possibly, an Almond Joy sundae ice cream treat will be at the concessions, he said. We kind of wanted a fun, fair kind of menu, along with the traditional ballpark foods.Ž Realizing its Florida-hot, frozen daiquiris, unique to this stadium, will be served, along with frozen lemonade. Were bringing in Florida fun, and want to make it refreshing and cool.Ž Hes planning on working with local brewers to bring in craft beers from the area. It only makes sense,Ž he said, though sponsorships and deals made with national brewers may be a decid-ing factor on what beers are served, he said. But, Im 99 percent sure well have local craft beers.Ž In the private suites at the park, separate menus will offer unique Florida bites, including alligator nuggets and local fish tacos. At some point, they may be available for the general public, but for now, theyre on the suites menu,Ž he said. All the foods will be prepared in the kitchens at the stadium „ even down to the chopped onions and tomatoes for salsa and condiments. If you chop those off site „ you have to use them right away. Its just easier if we do it here. Its what we did at the Nats park,Ž he said. Hes a seven-year veteran of several sports venues, including the Nationals ballpark in Washington, D.C., the Veri-zon Center, where the Mystics basket-ball team plays, and at one time he was the executive chef for the Washington Redskins. For two years, he left Professional Sports Catering, the company that han-dles catering at spring training centers across the country, but was called to come back and open the new West Palm stadium thats set to open Feb. 28. During his tenure at the stadiums, hes also learned to love Americas pastime. I was a basketball and football fan, but hadnt ever been to a baseball game or even watched any,Ž he said. Then I got the job with the Nationals and started following it. Now, I watch it even on my days off.Ž Hes pumped to work in South Florida, where he moved from Orlando, and is eager to get a handle on the demo-graphics so he can hone in on foods for certain fans. Informed that most Florida fans in the stands are from somewhere else, he said hed be learning about them and getting their feedback. But he thinks the basics are covered for now. For the segment bent on healthier eating, Well have salads, veggie burgers and stuff, for those who want to stick to their diets and be conscious of what theyre eating,Ž he said. But honestly, you go to the ballpark to have a good time „ and it all goes to the wind. You want beer, peanuts and hot dogs. Thats your cheat day.Ž Q „ For more on Ballpark of the Palm Beaches, visit page 1COURTESY PHOTOChef Eric Butler will offer classics with a twist at the new Ballpark of the Palm Beaches.


B14 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 2-8, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYPalm Beach Dramaworks 2017-18 season presents the world premiere of Billy and Me Save the date. Billy and Me,Ž a play inspired by the friendship between playwrights Tennessee Williams and William Inge, will have its world pre-miere at the Don & Ann Brown Theatre during Dramaworks 2017-18 season. The new play by Terry Teachout, whose Satchmo at the WaldorfŽ has been produced to great acclaim off Broadway and throughout the country, will receive its world premiere next season at Palm Beach Dramaworks. The play speculates on the tempestuous friendship between playwrights Tennessee Williams and William Inge. PBD Producing Artistic Director Wil-liam Hayes, who suggested the idea to Mr. Teachout, will direct the premiere, which runs Dec. 8 through Jan. 7, 2018. Having made my directing debut at PBD last season, I know very well that its a great place to work, a gorgeous theatre full of first-class people,Ž Mr. Teachout said. I also know that Bill is a superb director and a perfect col-league „ the kind of guy who works WITH you to make a show as good as it can possibly be. For all these reasons, Im hugely excited to be premiering my second play at PBD. It couldnt be in better hands.Ž Billy and MeŽ will star Nicholas Richberg as Tennessee Williams and Tom Wahl as William Inge. Round-ing out the cast is Kristian Bikic, who doubles as a waiter in the first act and a doctor in the second. All three actors have participated in workshops of the play and are very much involved in the creative process. Mr. Hayes came up with the notion of a piece about the two playwrights while directing Inges PicnicŽ in 2015. When Mr. Teachout was in town for produc-tion meetings on Satchmo,Ž the two men went to lunch and Mr. Hayes asked if the idea had potential. Mr. Teachout was intrigued. Flying back to New York the next day, he wrote the scenario in a frenzy,Ž he says, on the plane. I phoned Bill from the plane as soon as I landed and said, I think I know what the play is!Ž Mr. Teachout recalled. Ever since I first saw Freuds Last SessionŽ at PBD, Id wanted to try writing a history play of my own that takes place in a kind of blank historical space, an undocumented moment dur-ing which you know almost nothing for sure about what actually happened to the real-life characters. We know that Inge and Williams were friends, but nei-ther one of them ever spoke on record about their relationship in any detail. That gave me the elbow room I needed to imagine for myself what might pos-sibly have taken place between them.Ž Billy and MeŽ is a memory play narrated by the Tennessee Williams char-acter. Act I is set at a bar in Chicago on Dec. 31, 1944, immediately after a pre-Broadway tryout of Williams The Glass Menagerie,Ž the play that inspired William Inge to become a playwright. Act II takes place almost 15 years later in Inges Manhattan apartment, a few hours after the Broadway premiere of his first flop, A Loss of Roses.Ž Its a play about l ove, jealousy, and „ not to put it too pompously „ des-tiny,Ž Mr. Teachout said. An artist is a person who cant do anything else with his life. Art is his fate: Its that or noth-ing. But he cant become an artist until he accepts that fate and acknowledges his true nature. Thats a big part of what this play is about: the struggle of two great American playwrights to come to terms with who they really were.Ž Mr. Teachout, drama critic for The Wall Street Journal, has had a diverse career. He was a professional jazz bass-ist for eight years. He has been a dance and music critic, an editorial writer, and a member of the National Council on the Arts. He has written the libretti for three operas by Paul Moravec and is the author of numerous books, including The Skeptic: A Life of H.L. MenckenŽ; All in the Dances: A Brief Life of George BalanchineŽ; Pops: A Life of Louis ArmstrongŽ; and Duke: A Life of Duke Ellington.Ž Satchmo at the Wal-dorfŽ was written after Mr. Teachout wrote the Louis Armstrong biography.

Knowing what might lie ahead gives you an edge on how to handle it. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Personal pressures at work could create a problem with your perfor-mance. Best advice: Focus on the job ahead of you. If necessary, you can deal with the other issue later. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You dont like rejection. But instead of try-ing to ramŽ your ideas through to an unreceptive audience, stand back and wait for a more favorable environment later this month. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Job commitments call for the tidy Taurean to charge into those problem-plagued projects and get them into shape. Then go ahead and enjoy the fun and friend-ships of your expanding social life. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) The pressures of the workplace are beginning to ease. While you still need to stay connected to your ongoing com-mitments, youll be able to take more time to relax with family and friends. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might feel that you need to prove how much you can do. But be careful not to take on more than you can handle, or you risk being bogged down. An Aries has a message for you. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Financially it could be a little tight for a while. So resist the urge to splurge on things you dont really need. There will be time enough to indulge yourself when the money squeeze eases later this month. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You demand trust from others. But someone is creating a situation that could put your own trustworthiness in question. Be sure to keep all lines of communication open. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A problem delays the recognition that you hoped to receive for your hard work. But all will soon be resolved. Remember to make patience your watchword this week. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Those wonderful ideas could expand your workplace prospects and ultimately lead you on a new career path. Your personal life also opens up new vistas. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) So much seems to be swirling around you these days that you might find it hard to focus on pri-orities. Best advice: Take things one at a time, and youll get through them all. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Work out situations with what you have, and avoid the temp-tation to create complications where they dont exist. This applies both at home and in the workplace. BORN THIS WEEK: Like your fellow Aquarian Abraham Lincoln, you have a way of handling the most dif-ficult situations with grace and convic-tion. Q SEE ANSWERS, B13 SEE ANSWERS, B13

B18 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 2-8, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY jan Hurricane Caf owner opening Fresh Nation CUISINEThe owner of the Hurricane Caf in Juno Beach is about to do a 180, with a new health-focused eatery called Fresh Nation Ive kind of been wanting to do a fast casual place,Ž said Scott Philip owner and chef at the popular Hur-ricane, a 16-year-old staple for comfort foods aimed at locals and tourists alike. The owner of the gym, Loggerhead Fitness across the street, Rick Upton has been trying for a long time to get me to do a kiosk or small take-out counter or whatever there with juices and some light foods.Ž Plans went back and forth for over a year until a space became available next to the gym, and Loggerhead Fitness expanded. Next door was a small space left over, perfect for a small restaurant. I eventually decided that this may be an opportunity to do something,Ž Mr. Philip said. He went to work designing both the space and menus to fit the healthy life-style of gym clients. While there are a lot of healthy choice items on the menu at Hurricane, were more kind of an everyday local type comfort foodŽ place, he said. The menu focus at the new Fresh Nation will be totally different, using superfoods like kale, quinoa, vegetables, fresh juices, protein shakes, and overall healthier fare. But its not all vegetarian. Its tagline is Clean eating, delicious food. Eat with a purpose, and exercise with a plan.Ž I think what we were looking for was something like a healthy choice kind of place. We want to give people choices, and change the perception of healthy food. We want to give them options, and show them you can eat healthy foods that arent just steamed broccoli or a piece of grilled chicken on a salad. It can be delicious. Theres a movement out there. I think this is a growing trend. There are millennials who have never eaten at McDonalds or drank a soda. They want good quality food but dont want to sit down; they want a fast-casual experi-ence.Ž He cites the popularity of Panera Bread, Chipotle and the new bowlŽ cuisine places, with Bolay in North Palm Beach getting praise from him for their fresh foods. We have bowls, but theyre designed with their own flavor. Im a classically trained chef. Were closer to a Paleo diet with a lot of vegetables and a protein. Ž Hes brought in nutritionist Stephanie Brust who will guide the menu and affirm the calorie count and nutrients in each dish. I want to make sure we have that credibility,Ž he said. We can back this up. A lot of places say their food is healthy, but well be able to prove it. She calls this more of a transitional menu. Its for people trying to transition off fried foods and sodas and more tra-ditional restaurant food.Ž To make sure its always consistent, all the portions and ingredients will be measured and weighed for each dish that goes out. Thats the hardest part of training,Ž he said. Most cooks and chefs are used to just grabbing a handful of ingredients and throwing them into the skillet or plate, he said. Here, every dish every time will be spoodledŽ out in measured amounts. A fresh juice soda machine means he can make sodas to order from juices pressed on the spot. Theres already a juice place in the plaza, so we cant compete with them, so I had a soda machine built. I just pour the fresh juice in the tank and you get fresh soda. Its so delicious. Its dynamite.Ž Hell split his time overseeing both breakfast and lunch during the week at Fresh Nation and then get to the Hur-ricane Caf on the busy weekends when hes needed most there. I was lucky to pick up the chef and a lot of staff from Annies Kitchen (in Jupiter). Some of the others are trainers at the gym and know this food.Ž Diners can also set up an appointment with the nutritionist, who will have an office at the restaurant, he said. She can design a meal plan based on their lifestyle and any dietary restric-tions they have. The restaurant is scheduled to have its grand opening in mid-February. Fresh Nation, 891 Donald Ross Road (in Plaza de Mer), Juno Beach; phone 318-5371; In brief Congratulations to Tim and Jenny Lipman owners of the Coolinary Caf in Palm Beach Gardens for their new spot, the Parched Pig The wine and charcuterie bar, used for waiting for a table at the always busy Coolinary, or an after-dinner drink spot to relax, has local craft beers, boutique wines, and small plates. The staff also can get din-ers here a reservation into the restaurant where waits can extend to over an hour in season for its walk-up-only policy. Its a few doors east of Coolinary in the old Vault 39 Wine Cellar space in Donald Ross Village ƒ. Pizzeria Oceano a favorite rogue pizza spot in Lantana, has been sold. New owner, chef Jeremy Bearman and spouse, Cindy „ a noted pastry chef „ have reopened the place as Oceano Kitchen The fresh pizza and burgers will remain on the menu, but expect a few tweaks. Chef Bearman is known for his One Door East deli in Fort Lauderdale, acclaimed by many critics for fresh and locally sourced ingredients „ much like the pizzeria he takes over.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 2-8, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19The Dish: Vegetable Rolls The place: Thaicoon, 450 Northlake Blvd., No. 4, North Palm Beach; 848-8538. The price: $4.95 The details: These rolls taste like freshness. Rice paper wraps cucumber, cabbage, carrot, bits of tofu, basil and other delights into a side dish that can make a meal „ I frequently order the rolls as a main dish. The slightly spicy, but not too sweet honey peanut sauce is perfect for dip-ping. Get a bowl of one of the soups, an order of these vegetable rolls and youre good to go for a light meal. Q „ Sc ott Simmons BY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@” oridaweekly.comCosta, the newest restaurant on Palm Beachs Worth Avenue, opened only a few weeks ago and early reports are very good. Things are going amazingly well,Ž says Executive Chef David Valencia. We had a lot of covers and a lot of good feedback.Ž The cuisine, he says, is sophisticated and eclectic, combining New American flavors with Latin, Asian and European influences. The menu draws inspiration from Chef Valencias passion for simplistic, fresh Mediterranean seafood, seasonal produce and vibrant spices. Each dish, he says, is beautifully presented and amazingly flavorful. The 151-seat Costa is on the second floor of the Esplanade, a shopping center that has been without a restaurant since 2014. Previous tenants included Trevini Ristorante, GiGis Tap and Table and Cha Chas Latin Kitchen & Tequila Bar. Costa owners are Sascha and Danielle Bennemann. Sascha and I clicked from the moment we met,Ž Chef Valencia says. Both of us are fathers to 5-year-olds.Ž Chef Valencia grew up in a big farmhouse in Colombia and began cooking at an early age. Family meals began with catching and cooking meats and growing produce. I would help my grandmother catch a chicken and cook it for dinner,Ž he says. Chef Valencias family background and farm-to-tableŽ influence gave him a strong appreciation and respect for using local ingredients. After moving to the U.S., Valencia got his career rolling by working at the Michelin-rated and James Beard Award-winning restaurant, The Modern, in Manhattan, and subsequently at Adour Alain Ducasse, where he trained under restaurateur and Michelin-starred chef Alain Ducasse. In 2011, he joined hospitality group EMM Group to open Catch with Top ChefŽ winner Hung Huynh in both New York and Miami. Later, he became chef de cuisine at Meat Market in Palm Beach and, most recently, was executive chef at Caviar Russe in Miami. Today, Chef Valencias commute is much shorter than Miami. From his home in West Palm Beach, it takes just 10 minutes to get to work. For those coming to Costa for the first time, Chef Valencia has three recommen-dations: Salt-baked branzino (sea bass) with arugula emulsion, grilled lemon and olive caper tomato relish; crispy per-nil (pork chunks) for two (or three) with garbanzo tomato stew, chorizo and scal-lion chimichurri; and a whole roasted chicken for two with fragrant rice and caramelized onions and roasted vegeta-bles. The chicken comes in a Moroccan tangine and the presentation is amaz-ing,Ž Chef Valencia says. David ValenciaAge: 32 Original hometown: Medellin, Colombia Restaurant: Costa in the Esplanade, 150 Worth Ave., Palm Beach; 429-8456, Open for dinner only, but will add lunch and brunch soon. Mission: To give people an amazing experience through my cooking and to educate my staff to grow in this industry. Cuisine: Mediterranean Training: New York. Michelin-starred restaurants. Alain Ducasse. Gabriel Kreuther. Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? Birkenstock Black Boston Leather No Strap Super Grip. The best shoes. Light as a feather. What advice would you give someone who wants to be a chef? Take every day and every job as a learning experience; you cannot work in this industry if its only a paycheck. You must have passion and no ego. You must want it really bad inside, to be great... is to want to work really, really hard, and be happy with what you have now, because if its this you really want ... you must sow a seed and watch it grow very slow-ly. And when you least expect it, you will see what type of chef you have become. Never stop learning. Never stop cooking. Never stop teaching.

It publishes monthly. Call 561.904.6470 or visit us on the web at Remembering three decades ofAntique RowI remember my first visits to West Palm Beach s Antique Row. It was in the mid-80s, and South Dixie Highway was more like the Wild West than the pockets of calm weve come to expect. But Antique Row represented one little glimmer of hope in an area domi-nated by drug dealing, prostitution and more violent crimes. CityPlace was a good 15 years away, and downtown West Palm Beach was a shell of its former self, having lost most of its major retail businesses to the Palm Beach Mall, which had opened in 1967. It was here that you could shop for Steiffs and other collectibles at Cassi-dys Antiques, beautiful objects at Peter Werners store, funky finds at the late Lou Ann Wilson-Swans Lulus Stuff or elegant furnishings at N.P. Trent. I remember spotting treasure at Sonny Lastitions Revue Antiques. It was there I saw a set of Occupied Japan china identical to the one I had inherited from my aunt. I thought I had hit pay dirt because it was priced at $500. Now, of course, much of that has changed, along with markets and tastes. Cassidys is long gone, and Aunt Cleos floral china is worth a fraction of its 1980s value. But I still remember the thrill of that sighting so long ago at Mr. Lastitions store. Revue Antiques remains a pleasure to visit, simply because of Mr. Lasti-tions cheery demeanor and his willing-ness to change with the times. As with other shops along Antique Row, Revue Antiques is filled with tony accessories and furnishings. But the same could be said for other retailers. Craig Ketelson and Jeffrey Burgess at James & Jeffrey Antiques always have excellent taste and a kind word, as does Faustina Pace, who owns an epony-mous shop filled with treasures from France. Speaking of France, it always brings great pleasure to visit with Patricia Pingree-Clouet des Pesruches of Patri-cias Gallery, which has opened in the past couple of years at the north end of Antique Row, and where the space speaks to her refined aesthetic. I remember shopping at one of Antique Rows largest stores, The Elephants Foot, when it was on Olive Avenue in the heart of downtown West Palm Beach. I was delighted when its own-ers, Marvin Ray and Ronald French, bought the old Ranchs Drug Store to create a home for their shop and for Rhythm Caf. There were lots of beautiful objects at The Elephants Foot then, just as there are now. Perhaps thats the one constant in an ever-evolving marketplace.

The al fresco fundraiser for the Historical Society of Palm Beach County will ring in its 30th anniversary on six blocks of South Dixie Highway, where this years garden-party-under-the-stars theme unfolds. Floral displays, twin-kling lights and oasis-inspired hospital-ity tents will transform the store-lined strip. Every year, we try something different,Ž said Jillian Markwith, the soci-etys director of marketing and special events. At the heart of it is a desire to elevate the historical area, which is key to our countys reputation as a cultural, dining and shopping destination.Ž Antique Row has received international acclaim as one of the premier places for finding troves of treasures and trinkets that date back to the 17th century. Publications including Architectural Digest, Art & Antiques, Cond Nast Traveler, House Beautiful and The New York Times have heralded it as haven for antiquers. There are a lot of people who come to the event who dont know Antique Row, and we introduce it to them,Ž said Victor de Marinis, president of the Antique Row Association. Its good for the community. It brings an excess of 1,000 people here in a three-hour period.Ž An estimated 1,200 attendees are expected to sip, snack and stroll start-ing at 6 p.m. All participating stores will be open for business, many providing complimentary refreshments to shop-pers. Its a nice night to get together and meet the merchants,Ž Mr. de Marinis said. Last year, it was a really enjoy-able party. I think its great for Antique Row.Ž Ronald French, co-owner of The Elephants Foot Antiques, looks forward to the event every year and sees it as an opportunity to socialize with existing customers and seek out potential ones. Its a real exposure thing,Ž Mr. French said. I think the historical soci-ety has done a great job promoting it.Ž The societys Young Friends group plans and presents the annual affair in an effort to raise money for the non-profit and its Richard and Pat Johnson Palm Beach County History Museum. Proceeds pay for the Traveling Edu-cational Trunk Program, in which a container of assorted artifacts, period clothing and other items are distributed to students along with activity booklets. Lesson plans also are provided to teach-ers. Proceeds additionally cover the costs of field trips to the museum for schools that dont have the budget. Evening on Antique Row „ it brings a younger audience to us,Ž said Mr. B ROW Evening highlights West Palm Beach design district’s 30-year history on Dixie ANTIQUE COVER STORY“Hopefully, the event will try to capture a whole other new audience.

14 LUXE LIVING FEBRUARY 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYTHE LUXE GETAWAY BY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@” oridaweekly.comIf shell seeking is your thing, youll want to visit Captiva or Sanibel, two connected west coast barrier islands where more than 250 species of shells can be found. So many shell seekers can be seen on the islands that the position they assume „ bending down to pick up the treasures „ has its own name: the Cap-tiva Crouch. In Sanibel, its called the Sanibel Stoop. Wonder why the shells are so plentiful? Captiva and Sanibel are unique in that they lie east to west rather than north to south, acting like a shovel scooping up the shells the Gulf of Mexico imports from the Caribbean and other southern seas. Shell collecting is so popular that South Seas Island Resort on Captiva Island even has its own shelling con-cierge program and invites visitors to go on guided beach walks each week. Marine experts on-site at the Sanibel Sea School, a nonprofit based at the resort, staff the program. The concierge program complements the other eco-friendly offerings at the school, which range from marine con-servation classes to birding tours. Shellers can learn where to look for the most treasured shells, find out all about basic bivalve and gastropod biol-ogy and learn why so many seashells wash up on the resort's shoreline. You can find conch shells, lightning whelk, cockle, scallops, murex, coquina and even junonia, a shell that stands out because of its beauty and rarity. Visitors can scan the islands shelling prospects at The Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum in Sanibel. An interactive map allows visitors, staff and volunteers to post up-to-date information on shelling and beach conditions. Shellers can share their finds on the map, which is acces-sible free-of-charge. Of course, you dont need to be a fan of sea shells to enjoy Captiva or Sanibel. The beaches are long and lovely, and the Gulf waters are great for swimmers of all ages. Shops and restaurants are painted in pastels and residents give their homes names like Mermaid Place, Captivated, Shellusion and Pink Para-dise. Our favorite places to stay are South Seas Island Resort, which has an array of accommodations, nature preserve and marina, and Tween Waters Inn, a 138-unit resort between the bay and the Gulf. It has everything from motel rooms to suites to deluxe cottages with screened porches. There's a marina, a restaurant, a large pool and pool bar, crab races, a spa and a great beach loaded with shells. A Captiva getaway is never complete without dinner at the Bubble Room, at Captiva Drive and Andy Rosse Lane. Opened in 1979, the eatery is a ram-shackle assortment of crowded rooms decorated with toy trains and old-fash-ioned bubble Christmas lights. Waiters and waitresses are called Bubble Scouts and dress in Scout uni-forms. Food portions are big and so are the crowds. If you go, be sure to try the garlicky Bubble Bread. Other popular menu items include grouper in a bag and orange crunch cake. After dinner, stroll along Captivas picture-perfect Andy Rosse Lane and its eclectic galleries. Nearby is Jungle Drums, The Ultimate Wildlife Gallery,Ž which show-cases works in bronze, glass, clay, mixed media, resin, wood and others. Check out the hand-painted Adirondack chairs, a great reminder of Captiva's laid-back lifestyle. Q with a Captiva getaway Shell-ebrate winter ’Tween Waters beach umbrella.
