A2 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 23-29, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY World RenownedPediatric Orthopedic Care You Deserve the Best Care with the Largest Team of Pediatric Orthopedic Specialists in Palm Beach County PaleyInstitute.orgDror Paley, MD, FRCSC Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon … Founder & Director David Feldman, MD Pediatric & Adult Orthopedic & Spine Surgeon Craig Robbins, MD Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon Bradley Lamm, DPM, FACFAS Pediatric & Adult Foot & Ankle Surgeon Jason Weisstein, MD, MPH, FACS Pediatric & Adult Joint Replacement & Tumor Surgeon COMMENTARYDj vu all over againOnce upon a time, in a magical land called the New South, there existed a round table and a band of educational leaders and aspiring politicians. They gath-ered together from across the borders of the old Confederacy. Their goal was an economic pact to unite the region and annihilate the terrible poverty stalking the land. Together, they would promote a new wave of economic development in the South and improve the quality of life for all Southerners. They founded a new nonprofit, The Southern Growth Policies Board, or SGPB, to carry out their vision. Its capstone wasnt sexy, but it communicated the orga-nizations purpose and function. A blue-ribbon board mandated the agency gather intelligence and serve as a vessel of learning for state lawmakers and the pri-vate sector. They targeted the powerbro-kers who had their hands on the lever of social and economic change in the South. The year was 1972. The agency armed itself with cuttingedge, economic development research conducted by the Souths best and bright-est. Its reports and publications became the focus of groundbreaking, high-level events among key stakeholders. SGPB activities were designed to challenge and change the conversation about economic development in the South. It promoted innovation, entrepreneurship, leadership, and technology. The Future of the SouthŽ was its rallying cry, higher wage skills, and higher-paying jobs its goal. It urged lawmakers to adopt new ways of thinking about job creation, and end the regions dependence on cheap labor as its competitive edge in the competition among states for jobs. Many southern lawmakers warmed to the cause, though some less enthusiasti-cally than others. They were wary of the challenges and changes ahead. But still, all the great houses of state government were paying attention. They had good reason. The regions poverty was endemic and pernicious. It was the Souths Mark of Cain. The cycle of its perpetuation con-signed millions to barren shanties and a life of struggle to just get by. The regions economy lagged far behind the rest of the nation. The rural landscape was stripped of its abundance by its relentless exploitation. Towns were dying. The pockets of prosper-ity were modest and far between. Education was hobbled by racism and schools that were separate and unequal. Educational mediocrity was the price paid by all to sustain the peculiarity of the regions racial apartheid. Human capital withered on the vine. If race and class did not anoint ones prospect with privilege, you fled, almost always northward. Or you stayed, a pris-oner of personal circumstance, a Sisyphus bound forever to dreams deferred. The story repeated itself until it stamped every place with its telling. Anyone attempting to burnish the Souths sorry reputation was met with cynicism and pity. Southerners carried the Souths stereotypes with them. Its image was dirt floors, white trash, shiftless blacks and rebel rednecks, bound together in the hopeless mire of a plantation economy. It was a human and economic tragedy played out on a national stage, shameful to those who sought to rise above it; and dangerous to those who questioned the authority producing it. Still and all, it was the 20th century. The region was losing the race toward modernity. Its economy was burdened by the weight of the past. Something had to be done. Southern progressives had long dreamed of the New South.Ž Henry Grady, the spir-ited editor of The Atlanta Constitution, was the first, back in the 1880s. He urged the South to embrace industrialization, enter the American mainstream, and shed its past of poverty and injustice. He was followed 75 years later by Ralph McGill, his editorial descendant, but he, too, witnessed the regions commitment to American ideals wither away under the assault of right-wing populists, the hope of justice and equity for millions extinguished by the radicals for many more decades.Ž By the 1980s, the SGPB had gained momentum and was again knocking on the door of the old status quo. For too long, the South had depended on hands for working and not minds for thinking. The region needed to „ no, it must „ grow beyond its dependence on tax giveaways and cheap labor as its principal means of stimulating economic growth. It argued for aggressive, long-term investments in the regions human capital and promoted entrepreneurship region-wide. Using these strategies, the South would move up the value chain,Ž end its dependence on cheap labor and build and attract industries with good paying jobs. The idea held sway but briefly. It was easier for lawmakers to declare victory by snagging companies with hefty taxpayer subsidies in exchange for the promise of jobs created. Concern for job quality was trumped by lets make a deal.Ž The Souths brain drainŽ was a further disincentive for lawmakers to do anything dramatically different. In the end, author Gavin Wright observed, as a low-wage region in a high-wage country, the South had no expecta-tion that it could capture the return on investment in its own people.Ž If you think about it, even now, not much has changed. „ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

And all the rest of us have to help pay for it. But why? Or, says the government, we have to maintain a standing army, with a navy and an air force. Again, why? Some of us dont want to. So why do all of us have to help? All of us pay taxes, too. But what if we dont want to? If you want to pay taxes, you go right ahead and pay taxes. I dont wanna, they say. You buy roads that you dont travel, you fix bridges to places you dont go, you hire police who subdue criminals who dont attack you, you support firefighters who save someone elses bacon, not yours. I dont wanna.And you go ahead and support public art, the silliest of excesses. Why should I? The last question is particularly sensitive since art isnt a tool or a gun „ it isnt a new highway or a school, a park or an F-35 fighter. No. Art just hangs there on the wall in a frame or drifts away on the wind in a fading chord. Or it disappears into space and memory when the curtain falls. Art, it seems, is nothing. So why should Americans have to support it? Those questions are the bugle-call of retreat, according to Winston Churchill, a man unsuited to moving backward. The arts are essential to any complete national life,Ž he said in 1938. The State owes it to itself to sustain and encour-age them ƒ Ill fares the race which fails to salute the arts with the reverence and delight which are their due.Ž Its a stormcock notion given the Nazi assault on western civilization picking up speed and rolling toward him like a tsu-nami, at that point. And now we come to this: The 45th American president „ his nation the champion of western progress in the dark-est 20th-century hours „ has decided 17 years into the fledgling 21st to cut arts spending from the American budget. Completely. So he can boost the military budget, apparently. Pure pragmatism, you reckon? President Trump is a realist and art is inessential? Take a 5-gallon bucket. Spit into it. Fill it with water. Youll have a fair representa-tion of the size of the arts budget lost in the sea of everything else we Americans buy. But every penny counts, right? In the United States, the annual budget for the National Endowment for the Arts, the federal agency that offers grants to art-ists in all 50 states, is $148 million. Thats mere spit in a bucket. Nevertheless, why should any of us have to pay even one cent of that money, some ask? At this spittle level of spending, we could conduct 16 or 17 days of effort against ISIL at roughly $9 million per day, the cost of military operations, by government estimates. At this spittle level of spending, come 2019 we could buy one F-35 Joint Strike Fighter at about $85 million and have enough left over to fund five more days of the ISIL War. At this spittle level of spending, average taxpayers in the U.S. are pumping out about 46 cents. Not per day, not per week, not per month, but 46 cents per year „ less than a penny a week. In Finland in recent years theyve paid $91 per person, annually; in Germany, $85; in France and Sweden, $57; in Canada (O Canada!), $46; and in the United Kingdom, $36 per taxpayer, per year, estimates show. But Winston Churchill was also a pragmatist, like Stuart Brown, a professor of theater at Florida Southwestern State Col-lege. Neither of them would reckon art exists for its own sake. Instead, art remains an unruly town crier, a court fool as essen-tial as breath, shelter and food to a full life. In a free society, artists are the first ones who ask questions,Ž Professor Brown told me the other day. Why are we invad-ing Vietnam or Iraq? Why are we poison-ing the water?Ž In November, he directed a student production of Paragon Springs,Ž a 2010 Stephen Dietz play based on Henrik Ibsens, An Enemy of the People,Ž describing the actions of local government officials when they learn whats poisoning their warm mineral springs, a big-money tourist attraction. He even brought in Dr. Marc Edwards to talk about it „ a MacArthur Foundation genius grantŽ winner and pro-fessor at Virginia Tech who proved that federal, state and local officials in Flint, Mich., knew the citys water was lead poi-soned long before they let the public know, and as children became sick. Dr. Edwards pointed to those plays as paragons of reve-latory art that helped him put his whistle-blowing work in perspective. Artists are a bunch of troublemakers,Ž Professor Brown admits. They ask ques-tions about bad things, and they ask ques-tions about good things. You want to call them into your office and say, Youre a pain in the butt, but I need to hear what you have to say.Ž Artists ask us to reconsider, to look at things more broadly, more closely, more deeply „ which is why the U.S. should always support them, even if some dont wanna. The president, however, doesnt want to look at things that way. He doesnt want to hear things questioned. And he doesnt think we need to see or hear what artists have to say, either. He thinks art should exist for its own sake, and not for ours. Q Issues of sanctuary cities are far-reachingFor both sides, the issue of sanctuary cities can be simple and emotional. But its really complex, with implications far beyond illegal immigration. Im ambivalent about this „ sympathetic to immigrants who are seeking better lives but aware that essential progress has been gained due to the inviolable suprem-acy of federal law. This issue was intensified by President Trumps executive order to withhold most federal money from sanctuary cities. Major cities „ including New York City, Chi-cago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Boston and San Francisco „ are in that category. Court decisions in nonimmigration cases have restricted Washingtons abil-ity to deny federal money. But regard-less of that, the overriding question is whether local governments should be able to ignore federal laws that they oppose. Sanctuary cities apparently are places where local officials wont provide infor-mation or assistance to enforce immigra-tion laws. Police still can arrest any crime suspect but dont ascertain the immigra-tion status of arrestees. The responsibility of cities to aid immigration enforcement has been addressed in Congress and court. A 1996 law says local governments must cooperate with Immi-gration and Customs Enforcement. How-ever, the Supreme Court has ruled that while the federal government can ask local police for information about arrest-ed immigrants, it cannot require them to actively help enforce immigration law. The desirability of sanctuary cities has clear pros and cons. Foremost among the pros are vital humanitarian needs to keep families together and protect refugees who have fled real dangers. Also, police in sanctuary cities say local policies that foster trust help them by encouraging immigrants to report crime. On the other side is the importance of cooperation between agencies and govern-ment levels. After 9/11, critics rightly assert-ed that better cooperation, especially with information, could have made government more proactive before the attacks. And agen-cies routinely share information on many subjects to strengthen their effectiveness. Even more profound is the doctrine of federal supremacy. The Constitution declares that federal law shall be the supreme law of the land,Ž and our high court affirmed that in the 1819 landmark case of McCulloch v. Maryland. The principle of federal supremacy has produced much progress „ on civil rights, gay rights, environmental protection, workplace safety and other neces-sities. Some quarters have resisted these advances, but the primacy of federal law and Supreme Court decisions have secured ultimate compliance. History thus confirms that local laws or policies may not contradict or impede fed-eral mandates. The result of that author-ity sometimes will please liberals „ when it ensures desegregation, allows same-sex marriage and prevents pollution. And it will please conservatives when it curbs illegal immigration. These welcome or uncomfortable results for both sides of the political spectrum are inevitable because feder-al supremacy must be applied consistently. Localities should work to improve our immigration system „ through litiga-tion, lobbying and elections. That system must become more realistic and humane „ what President Obama called a bet-ter way to welcome the striving, hope-ful immigrants who still see America as the land of opportunity.Ž If thats finally achieved, the issue of sanctuary cities will become moot But until then, this controversy will keep challenging us and compelling imperatives from opposite directions will continue to clash.

MARTY BECKER AND MIKKEL BECKERAndrews McMeel SyndicationWe humans love our dogs, and theyve been our companions for thou-sands of years. But despite that age-old relationship, there are still things dogs do that make us scratch our heads and say, Hmm.Ž Lets take a look at some of those behaviors to discover the secrets that lie behind them. Q Why do dogs eat grass? We get this one a lot. There are lots of theories about this behavior. One is that dogs who eat it are trying to overcome stom-ach upset by making themselves vomit. Another is that grass contains nutrients that perhaps are lacking in the dogs diet. We happen to think that dogs eat grass because they like it. Havent you ever chewed on a blade of grass on a hot summer day? For the most part, theres nothing wrong with dogs eating grass. Two possible drawbacks are that they ingest parasite eggs with their salad,Ž or that they come inside and vomit it up on your favorite carpet. Q Why do dogs lick so much? Dogs love to lick us and themselves. Some-times they lick fabrics such as carpet or upholstery. Our salty skin tastes deli-cious, and our aroma, especially if were sweaty, is a delight to a dogs nose. Dogs get attention when they lick us, whether its a giggle or a YuckŽ as they swipe a tongue across our face. Dogs dont care. They just like that were talking to them. Licking also brings dogs a physiological reward: The pituitary gland in the brain releases hormones called endorphins that relieve pain and generate good feel-ings. Licking can also be a sign of a health problem. Dogs who lick themselves excessively may be suffering from aller-gies that cause them to itch. When dogs lick their bowls frantically or turn their tongues to carpet or upholstery, its a good idea to take them to the veterinar-ian for a checkup. Studies have found that dogs who perform these behaviors may be diagnosed with some form of gastrointestinal disease. Q Why do dogs wag their tails? The tail wag is a classic canine greeting, but it can have many other meanings, depending on the tails position, speed and even the direction in which it wags. Here are just a few of the many pos-sible interpretations of a wagging tail: A confident dog has his tail up. A dog who feels threatened typically holds his tail up but rigid, moving it rapidly back and forth. When the tail is relaxed and moving in a gentle sweeping motion, the dog is relaxed and welcoming. A dog with tail down is stressed or cautious. A fearful dog has his tail tucked. When dogs see their owners, as opposed to strangers or unfamiliar dogs, their tail wags most strongly toward the right. Q Why do dogs smile at us? A dogs smile can have several meanings. A common one is whats known as a sub-missive grin „ that expression a dog has when he wants to let you or another dog know that hes not a threat. A sub-missive grin can sometimes resemble a more aggressive smile,Ž indicating that the dog may bite if approached. A subtle clue is that with an aggressive smile, the lips may be pulled back instead of up. Always assess the rest of the dogs body language „ especially that expressive tail „ before deciding whether its safe to move toward this dog. Our favorite canine smile is when the mouth is open and relaxed. Thats what you see when your dog is calm and happy. We love that dogs show so openly that they are glad to see us. Neat fact: Dogs and humans use the same muscles to form a smile.

Attorney V. Lynn Whitfield, 62, of West Palm Beach asks the probing ques-tion in the introduction to her autobiog-raphy, which explores the many highs and lows in her own life, including a sudden brain surgery a few years ago for a subdural hematoma (brain bleed) which left her paralyzed. After four days in ICU following seizures in the recovery room and real-izing the left side of her body would not move, Ms. Whitfield remembered back to when she was a 6-year-old riding in her aunts car in a Cleveland rainstorm. Some people had stopped their cars and pulled off under an overpass to wait for the rain to stop, she says. But AuntieŽ kept driving and explained to her curi-ous niece what we need to do in the storm is to keep driving through it. We dont pull over. Eventually, you will come through the storm on the other side.Ž Throughout her life, that message has stayed with Ms. Whitfield, who proudly boasts of being a scholarship recipient and graduate of Brandeis University in Boston and then earning a University of Miami law degree in Coral Gables in 1980. Sometimes in life things will happen which knock you down and cause you to question whether or not you will be able to go on,Ž she writes.  It can be the loss of a job, the loss of a loved one, an arrest, or the news of a terminal illness. It doesnt have to happen to you direct-ly; it can be happening to someone close to you and thereby affecting you,Ž she observes. These are the things which I refer to as life storms.Ž For example, as a young lawyer, Ms. Whitfield lost a job as an assistant state attorney in Miami more than 30 years ago and she rebuilt her career step by step, leaning on her deep religious faith and convictions. She has many awards and honors to her credit. In those stormŽ situations she writes about in her book, The Partys Not Over Until God Says SoŽ (Professional Woman Publishing, 2015, $15 through, it is easy to look at the problem as hopeless, Ms. Whitfield explains. Enemies and those without faith may be quick to say its all over for you.Ž But not for Ms. Whitfield. Once a ward of the state of Ohio and an orphan by the age of 18, she has persevered through some very good times and some very challenging and desperate days. She will bring her mes-sage of hope to others who yearn to hear her inspirational presentation as co-emcee for a one-day Womens Con-ference on March 25 at the Hilton West Palm Beach. Topics include leadership, healthcare, finances, legal issues and politics. (For more information, visit or call Geanine Wester at 336-0498). Lynn Whitfields story of struggles „ in her legal career, with disease and day-to-day life „ and with her sense of overcoming through religion the many challenges shes faced will engage the many readers who hold similar beliefs,Ž says author John Katzenbach, who once wrote about her in The Miami Herald. In clear cut and direct prose, she tells of pitfalls and stumbles and how her connection with church and Bible got her through many difficulties,Ž he writes on the back of her book. When adversity visits, many people cower and seek cover,Ž says Ms. Whit-fields longtime friend and colleague, local attorney F. Malcolm Cunningham Jr. Lynn does her best work in the face of adversity. She owns her condi-tion and focuses all of her energy on returning to productivity. She did this in Miami when she had the incident as a prosecutor. She did it in the face of her illness. Shes done it in her business and in her employment. Never count her out…maybe down for a moment but never out. She is a fighter with a lot of heart!Ž Delray Beach Assistant City Attorney Lawonda Warren, who is president of the F. Malcolm Cunningham Sr. Bar Association, adds, Lynn is truly inspi-rational. Nine out of ten people could not have overcome many of Lynn's obstacles. Through her faith, tenacity, intellect, and humor she inspires us all to drive through our storms to get to the other side, to achieve happiness and success.Ž I think I am very blessed,Ž says Ms. Whitfield, a former city attorney in Hallandale, North Miami and Pahokee, Over the years I have learned it is not what others do or say about your life that matters, but what you do or say when you find yourself in that apparent hopeless situation „ that life storm. Do you buy into the hopelessness or do you pull yourself out of it?Ž Ms. Whitfield says she was compelled to write her book to help and encourage people. If others tell you there is no hope, laugh at them or dont respond at all.Ž She teaches. If you must respond all you need to say is the partys not over, until God says so.Ž Q „ Eunice Baros is a lawyer and mediator in Palm Beach County and served on the board of directors when V.

Palm Beach is their show of choice.Ž Potential buyers will travel from Orlando down and many will stay for the week-end, Mr. Doole said. The Palm Beach Show is the fourth largest in the U.S. and this years show will be slightly larger with more boats in the water and on land.Ž One of the largest exhibitors will be Worth Avenue Yachts, bringing more than $100 million in luxury yachts, a floating Rolls-Royce Motorcars display and avia-tion partners. This is our largest platform,Ž said marketing director Danielle Giordano. Well be bringing 15 yachts, ranging in length from 60 to 216 feet. We look forward to the show every year.Ž SV Yachts owner Mauricio Velez also is looking forward to the show, where he will show off his dreamboat, SV Alpha, one of the most unusual and fastest boats in the show. Mr. Velez and business partner Nicolai Sass hatched the plan to build the Alpha after attending a boat show in Miami a year ago. We looked at each other and said all these boats look the same,Ž said Mr. Velez, a Miami engineer. So they built something different, something that breaks conven-tions and fuses luxury and comfort with unyielding off-shore racing performance. The Alpha, Mr. Velez said, is powered by twin racing stern drives and can reach speeds over 90 miles per hour.Ž The lines of a 1967 Corvette, with a flared silver hull and lollipop red interior, inspired the 38-foot yacht. It has a James Bond factor,Ž Mr. Velez said. The cockpit comes with a touch screen helm area, red sun pads over the engine hatch and even a champagne cool-er. Depending on options, the Alphas price tag ranges from $680,000 to $813,000. Weve got over 15 people, mostly from Europe, interested,Ž Mr. Velez said. Because the boat show, presented by the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County Inc., has so many superyachts this year, a satellite location will be at Rybovich. Potential buyers will have access to private water tenders to ferry them to and from Rybovich Marina at 4200 N. Flagler Drive. The show offers free youth fishing clinics by Hook The Future, IGFA School of Sport fishing seminars, long-range cruis-ing clinics and on-the-water boat han-dling classes. Live music and refreshments at the shows popular floating cocktail lounges are also part of the fun. Guests may to arrive by boat and tie up to free docks south of the in-water displays. If youre planning to go,Ž Mr. Doole said, wear comfortable shoes and spend the day.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 23-29, 2017 NEWS A15 HEALTHY LIVINGYour care, your voice As head of Jupiter Medical Center, my passion and primary responsibility is car-ing for your health and wellness, and I want to continue doing that for years to come. However, this legislative session, a group of lawmakers is working to elimi-nate an important health care planning process called the Certificate of Need (CON) program. They believe by doing away with CON and deregulating health care, costs would be reduced and quality would be improved. I disagree. While I believe our legislators want to do the right thing, eliminating this program is not good for our commu-nity. CON is a vital program that requires health care providers to obtain state approval before offering services in Flor-ida. Ending CON and deregulating health care could likely trigger a chain reaction that reduces quality, increases costs and makes it harder for community members to obtain necessary services. As a community hospital, Jupiter Medical Center invests in many services that are unprofitable because they are essen-tial to the health and wellbeing of our neighbors. This includes services like obstetrics, diabetes care and our free clinic that serves those who cannot afford medical treatment. CON helps ensure that we can continue to provide these vital services regardless of their profit-ability. Health care in our community would dramatically change in a world without CON. Without CON in place, hospitals like ours could no longer afford to offer many of these services. In a CON-free Florida, boutique health care businesses could move in, offering only profitable services, instead of balancing these with vital com-munity services. For patients in Palm Beach County, this would mean gaps in essential programs. It is a well-documented fact that the more times a hospital performs a certain procedure, the better the out-come. In a community without CON, hospitals could offer a very complex ser-vice even if they are only performing the procedure a handful of times. Would you rather have neurosurgery in a hospital that performs 100 of these sophisticated procedures a yearƒ or four? If we add more hospitals to the mix, we are simply taking the volume and spreading it across even more providers. Eliminating CON is being touted as a way to create healthier competition and drive down costs „ but actually, the opposite is likely to happen. We compete against other hospitals every day, and thats a good thing. But provid-ing health care is not the same as selling widgets. Bring more widget sellers into a market and sure, prices will go down. But let more health providers come into a market without any oversight or planning to determine the need for more services, and costs will rise. The CON system is working. Its an effective tool to protect quality and make sure providers respond to your health care needs. Under these proposed new state bills, your voice would be taken away. If youre concerned about the consequences of eliminating CON, I encourage you to reach out to your legislators and let them know. Just visit to find your represen-tatives. The bills to eliminate CON are Senate Bill 676 and House Bill 7. Please feel free to contact me directly at to share your concerns. You also can read more on my blog or by connecting with me on LinkedIn (Linke-dIn/jcouris). With Congress currently debating massive changes to our U.S. health care system, now is not the time for Florida to make wholesale changes to our state regulatory structure. Join me and make your voice heard on this harmful legisla-tion that could critically impact you, your family and our community.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 23-29, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYThen called the Marinelife Center, it attracted beachgoers, families and tour-ists intrigued by turtle tales told by Elea-nor Fletcher, the matriarch of the move-ment to conserve the endangered species. The Turtle Lady,Ž as she lovingly was known, devised a method to track nests along the shoreline during the eight-month season that runs March 1 through Oct. 31. That meth-od remains in place, nearly 30 years later, providing critical data about the health of the precious popula-tion. Mrs. Fletcher, who died in 2009 at the age of 92, lived to see the expansion of the flourishing facil-ity she founded when a 12,000-square-foot building arose on the property and became the Loggerhead Marinelife Center. That was in 2007. Today, the classroom, exhibit hall, meeting space, research lab and veterinary hospital have outgrown their capacity, and there never are enough tanks. Were literally busting at the seams,Ž said Raymond Graziotto, the centers vice chairman of the board. Theres not a cor-ner of the building thats not filled up with people or turtles or researchers.Ž More than 350,000 visitors each year pass through the doors of the local land-mark, up from the 100,000 who visited during its initial year. The budget has boomed to $5.5 million, compared with $1.1 million a decade ago, and the number of full-time employees jumped to 30, from 17. The center treats an average of 100 sick or injured sea turtles each year, according to spokeswoman Hannah Deadman. Last year, more than 15,000 nests were counted on 9 miles of beach. In addition, the centers education department has more than tripled, offering 31 programs to 50,000 students annually. In 2013, it launched Project SHIELD, an outreach effort that trains everyone from anglers to boaters to homeowners about environ-mental best practices. In 2014, it took over management of the Juno Beach Fishing Pier by developing and implementing the Responsible Pier Initiative, which now is in place at 50-plus piers throughout the United States and in the Caribbean. Of all the things that I do as a philanthropist and a volunteer, I find the work thats been done at the center truly the most remarkable,Ž Mr. Graziotto said. What that allows us to do is to be kind of a world leader in helping folks around the globe.Ž The explosive evolution has led to the need for another expansion that will more than double the size of the center and bring nine new tanks to the crowded cam-pus. The Waves of Progress capital cam-paign, announced at the Lights Out Gala in January, will expand the classroom, exhibit hall, meeting space, research lab and veterinary hospital and feature a second floor with a 100-seat auditorium and an outdoor terrace. An amphitheater, a caf and the creation of a coral-reef exhibit also are planned. Buildout is at 27,500 square feet. The concept of having to more than double our size is indicative of the fact that we have been so amazingly success-ful,Ž Mr. Graziotto said. Were trying really hard to educate like-minded orga-nizations about clean water and healthy sea life.Ž The $14 million endeavor will cover construction costs, pay off debt from the previous expansion and fund an endow-ment for future operating expenses. A total of $4 million already has been raised. Were so excited about the early interest that weve received,Ž Mr. Graziotto said. Its been great to see the community perk its ears up and say, This is a special place, and we want to help make it a real-ity.Ž He said while the centers footprint will change, its mission will not. Our purpose as it relates to the animals is to rehabilitate them so that we can put them back into the ocean as quickly and safely as possible,Ž Mr. Graziotto said. Were not a zoo. Were not an aquarium. Were not looking to modify in any way the fundamental grassroots organiza-tion that weve developed. This is simply allowing us to serve a broader commu-nity, because were just out of room.Ž Ground will be broken this year. The estimated completion date is in the fall of 2020. Lead donors include board mem-bers and benefactors Bruce Beal, Gor-don Gray and Roe Green „ Ms. Green announced a community matching grant of $250,000 to accelerate the capital cam-paign. Elected officials, foundation directors, nongovernmental organizations and people who share our passionŽ make up the pool of potential donors, said Jack Lighton, the centers president and CEO. Thats where were getting new traction,Ž Mr. Lighton said. The more we have the opportunity to tell our story, and the more our programs are globally minded, the more were able to obtain a larger audience of funders.Ž The goal is to expand not only physically in the short term but also intellec-tually in the long term by hiring inde-pendent researchers, conducting more analysis and answering questions that will help sustain the lives of loggerheads, leatherbacks and greens. The questions in todays world are much different,Ž Mr. Lighton said. Its not just, Is the turtle sick, but, Why did the turtle get sick? And I dont want to have to say, Hey, Mr. Researcher, Im going to have to set you up in a garage with a fan because we dont have room for you.Ž Blueprints and renderings from the firms Cambridge Seven Associates in Massachusetts and Harvard Jolly Archi-tecture in Florida are displayed through-out the center and a Waves of Progress video filmed by Olympusat Entertain-ment in West Palm Beach is posted on the website. A total of $10 million remains to be raised, and in the coming months, big gifts are expected to be announced. Were starting to talk about millions of guests,Ž Mr. Lighton said. Were start-ing to talk about hundreds of thousands of students. Were starting to talk about thousands of turtles that have been saved.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 23-29, 2017 NEWS A17 Just like the turtles that return each year to lay their eggs on the beach where they were hatched, Loggerhead Marinelife Center hosts TurtleFest each year to call attention to sea turtle conservation. This year, the festival has a tagline: Together We Can.Ž It means Together We Can make a difference,Ž said Hannah Deadman, LMCs public relations and communications coordinator. Nothing is too small if it can impact the environment in a positive way. And its never too late to start making positive changes. Its a good reminder.Ž The centers commitment to conservation shows in how hard TurtleFest organizers worked „ and will work „ to make TurtleFest a zero-waste event.Ž Were both reducing waste and raising awareness,Ž Ms. Deadman said. One way is that there are no single-use plastics being used. Plates and cutlery are com-postable. Bottles are reusable, not dispos-able. The shirts worn by staff members and volunteers are made from recycled plastic.Ž New this year is the Seek Zero Pavilion and the Social Media Lounge where guests can participate in interactive activ-ities, post to social media, see live social feeds (#TurtleFest2017) and get tips for how to live more sustainably. Guests can also charge their phones here. Also new this year: Yoga. Three sessions will be spaced throughout the day. Were also encouraging people to ride their bikes to TurtleFest and well have a free Bike Valet on A1A,Ž Ms. Deadman said. Anyone who valets a bicycle will receive 25 percent off the purchase of a refillable water bottle. More than 10,000 people are expected to come to TurtleFest, considered Palm Beach Countys largest ocean conser-vation festival. But its not all serious save-the-ocean stuff. There are tons of kids activities, including the Grow Up Great Lagoon for kids younger than age 5, where theyll have puppet story time, a play area, recycled crafts and face paint-ing, all indoors in the Campus Learning Center. For older kids, the Do Your Part: Science & Art VillageŽ will have art projects, science experiments, and vegetable seeds kids can take home. And of course, kids are encouraged to visit the patients at the center. The turtle yard will be open so kids can get an understanding of what the center does to help the gentle giant sea turtles. TurtleFest 2017 will feature Lagunitas beer and Naked Turtle rum. It will have fair food like popcorn, fries and funnel cake, but theyll also have burritos, gyros, veggie wraps, salads and brus-chetta. And get ready to shop: There are nearly 80 nonfood vendors, from booths on conservation to hand-made clothing, art and jewelry, and the centers gift shop also will be open. Live music is an important part of TurtleFest, and theres live music all day. The lineup includes local favorites. Jahf, Fireside Prophets, Del Pelson and The People Upstairs are all sched-uled to perform. Students from the con-servatory at Maltz Jupiter Theatre and the Performing Arts Academy of Jupiter will also perform. But the conservation message is key. We want to raise awareness about our beach clean-ups, and were doing it in a unique way,Ž Ms. Deadman said. A pre-event beach cleanup is planned at 9 a.m. and the debris collected will be used to make a piece of art. Staff members will sort the debris, as they always do, and appropriate pieces will be set aside. Kids will glue the pieces of debris to a large piece of plywood and when they finish, Loggerheads logo will appear. Stop by and see how much garbage was collected at just one beach cleaning. Beach cleanups are a monthly affair at LMC, Ms. Deadman said, and volun-teers are always needed. The amount and type of debris collected is sorted and counted and the numbers are reported to the Ocean Conservancys Trash-Free Seas database. And those numbers are shock-ing: In 2016, the centers monthly beach cleanup collected nearly 13,000 pieces of plastic, more than 1,000 balloons, and 750 food wrappers. LMC is a nonprofit organization and admission to TurtleFest 2017 is free, but donations are needed and appreciated.

BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 23-29, 2017 | A18 WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM How to arouse a chicken, and other mistranslated marketing messages LOST IN TRANSLATION BY BOB MASSEYbmassey@”WHEN YOU SAY SOMETHING, MAKE sure you have said it. The chances of your having said it are only fair.Ž That bit of advice is from William Strunk Jr. and E.B. White, as posited in their classic, The Elements of Style.Ž If theres any area of communication where the adage serves not as advice but a warn-ing, its in the field of marketing. And theres no greater marketing challenge than the maddening endeavor to communicate your mes-sage to another culture „ which is SEE LOST, A19 X


FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 23-29, 2017 BUSINESS A19made exponentially more difficult when that includes translating it into a differ-ent language. For example, theres an old urban legend about Coca-Cola, that the soft drink giant insisted on keeping the sound of its name when first marketing its signature products to China. To do this, the com-panys marketers arranged Chinese char-acters that, when pronounced, sounded something like Coca ColaŽ „ only to discover the characters translated direct-ly as Bite the wax tadpole.Ž The story is bogus, but there are apparently other occasions where a mis-translation caused a company embar-rassment „ or at least gave foreign consumers pause.Consider the languageWould you buy Pet milk if you lived in France, where petŽ means to break windŽ? (Since the product is dairy, per-haps this wasnt all that inaccurate.) Rolls-Royce opted to change the name of its Silver Mist model before introduc-ing it in Germany, since mistŽ means manure.Ž Sunbeam wasnt so savvy with its German introduction of its Mist Stick curling iron „ only to discover no woman wanted to use a Manure WandŽ on her hair. As bad as that sounds, Coors beer had it worse. Its Turn it looseŽ sounds pretty cool in American English. But in Spain, it equated to Suffer from diarrheaŽ „ not exactly a selling point unless youre in the market for an alcoholic substitute for Ex-Lax. KFC is the No. 1 fast-food chain in China. But when it first opened its fran-chises there, it was discovered that the classic tagline Finger-lickin goodŽ became the rather unappealing Eat your fingers off.Ž Pepsi had its own mishap in China. The promise that Pepsi brings you back to lifeŽ had been mistranslated, creating a somewhat different connotation there „ Pepsi brings your ancestors back from the grave.Ž If youre Italian, youd probably be less likely to try Schweppes tonic water, since tonicŽ translates as toilet.Ž Not exactly the kind of underground spring Id be looking for. Ford has had some particularly bad luck with translations. Every car has a high-quality bodyŽ sounds like a solidly appealing promise to Americans. But in Belgium, that phrase was understood as Every car has a high-quality corpse.Ž I can only imagine what those Belgians thought a fully loaded Ford came with. Things did not fare any better for the automaker in Brazil, where it turned out Pinto is slang for tiny male genitals. American Motors didnt have much luck with Spanish, either, where its benign-sounding Matador model meant The KillerŽ in Puerto Rico. The long-defunct Braniff International Airways once tried to tout its new leather seats to Latin America with a translation of its tagline Fly in leather.Ž Unfortunately, in Mexico, that meant, Fly naked.Ž Compared to some other translations, thats downright clean.Dirty words Its nice to know that Parker pens, wont leak in your pocket and embar-rass you.Ž But Parker was embarrassed to find out that sentence meant something somewhat different in Mexico: It wont leak in your pocket and make you preg-nant.Ž Good gracious „ where has that pen been? Even a corporate titan such as McDonalds is not immune to translation errors. By calling its Big Mac a Gros MecŽ in France, it was actually calling it a Big Pimp.Ž What IS in that special sauce, anyway? French „ at least as spoken in Canada „ seems to pose particular problems for marketers. Hunt-Wesson translated the name of its Big John product line as literally as it could „ Gros Jos, which happens to be a slang term in Quebec for big breasts.Ž Then theres the Buick LaCrosse sedan, which was too close for comfort to a Quebeois term for mas-turbation.Ž (Could this be why lacrosse is considered the national sport of Canada, but you rarely see Canadians playing it?) I dont imagine the American Dairy Associations Got Milk?Ž campaign fared well in Mexico, where the phrase translated to Are you lactating?Ž Puffs tissues learned the hard way that its company name is a common term for whorehouse in Germany. Vicks (as in Vapo-Rub) had similar difficulties there, too. The VŽ is pronounced as an FŽ in German. That seems innocuous until you realize FicksŽ sounds a lot like the Eng-lish equivalent for sexual intercourse. Yep, the notorious F-bomb. Then theres my personal favorite. The late Frank Perdue taught us all that It takes a tough man to make a tender chicken.Ž But in Mexico „ again (what on Earth do they do down there?) „ that tagline can mean It takes a hard man to make a chicken aroused,Ž It takes a virile man to make a chicken pregnantŽ or It takes an aroused man to make a chicken affectionate.Ž None of those options would sit well with the ASPCA. Sometimes communication gaffes are not about what you say. Take Gerber, for instance, which started selling its baby-related products in Africa using its signature infant logo on the label. To the companys horror, it dis-covered that, because so many people on that continent cannot read, companies generally put a picture on the packag-ing of whats actually inside the box or jar „ thereby giving many Africans a whole new understanding of the term baby food.ŽBreak audience barriers While these examples may have given you at least a chuckle, they underscore a deadly serious marketing lesson: You need to speak the same language as your intended audience. Your marketing must address THEIR hopes, needs, desires, fears, concerns „ not YOURS (which is too often the case). When you dont, it creates a language barrier „ even in English … because your message has little or no meaning for the potential customer. Youre communicat-ing, Hey, look at us! Were a great com-pany! We make sales! We win awards!Ž And my response to that is, I dont care. Whats in it for ME?Ž As a customer, ME (not YOU) is who I find most interesting „ and your con-cern about solving MY problems or meeting MY needs is what ultimately convinces me to try your product or service.

A20 BUSINESS WEEK OF MARCH 23-29, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY MONEY & INVESTINGClouds of disruption are on horizon for Treasury Bond MarketThere has been lots of news lately to move the Treasury Bond Market. Two Fed moves in three months. A new president and his policies. A resurging U.S. economy. Turmoil in Europe. One would think that bond prices would be bouncing all over the place. Instead, looking at a three-month history of the 10-year Treasury, you would think you were looking at the pulse of a dead man. So why has the Treasury market been so stable? And will that carry on?Like any other security, the Treasury market is governed by supply and demand. And there are two powerful forces con-trolling the demand for these bonds. The first is the anticipation of higher inflation, economic growth, and future Fed actions. Most analysts believe that the Fed will increase rates two additional times in 2017 and then another three times in 2018. Generally, when the Fed is in rate-hike mode, long-term rates follow short-term rates in heading higher as well.While inflation is still relatively tame, there are signs that overall prices are rising. Energy prices have increased off their lows of last year. Wages are also slowly but steadily rising. And govern-ment spending in infrastructure and defense is anticipated to push inflation even higher. General economic growth is also supportive of bond yields heading higher. Employment is strong. Consumers and spending on big-ticket items like cars and travel. And the new Republican government is anticipated to boost the economy in the short term with tax cuts and deregulation. Opposing this force, which is putting pressure on bond prices, is the flight to safety. U.S. Treasury Bonds are globally thought of as the safest place to park money when security is paramount. And there are many reasons why people around the world have reason to desire this protection today. First, there is the uncertainty around Brexit. While many have forgotten about this, numerous investors are worried that as this process unfolds later this year, there may be significant disrup-tions in the markets. Second, the upcoming elections in France have many anxious. A populist or right-wing victory may also cause an upheaval in the global markets. And finally, the uncertainty around the new Trump administration also has traders putting money in the safety of Treasury Bonds. Will the president be able to make good on his campaign promises, or will gridlock derail his plans? Now, these two opposing forces are relatively balanced, which is why the Treasury market has so little volatility. Geopolitical events do have the chance to push the market out of equilibrium but odds are in the near term the market will be a boring place. But if I were a bond investor today, I would keep a very close eye on my investment. Like a tightrope walker per-fectly balanced on a wire, it would take very little to push this market into a free fall. Maybe we will see Janet Yel-len resign and be replaced by a new chairperson who wants to reduce the size of the Feds balance sheet by selling its massive bond holdings. Or maybe the U.S. economy is stronger than we thought and inflation will start to increase more than anticipated. While any of these events are unlikely, any sea-soned bond investor knows that bonds are the most boring of investment, until they are not.

Quantum Foundation is a private, nonprofit West Palm Beach-based organiza-tion that was formed with the net pro-ceeds from the sale of JFK Medical Center in Atlantis in 1997. The organizations mission is philanthropic „ one of our goals to improve the health of Palm Beach County residents,Ž Mrs. Mulholland said. Since its founding, weve awarded over $125 million to more than 450 grantees in the county. The foun-dations current assets total approximately $140 million.Ž Mrs. Mulholland served on the foundations grants committee in 2007 and became a member of the board of trustees the following year. After serving as chair of the audit committee, chair of the grants commit-tee, co-chair of the Quantum in the Com-munity Committee, and on the executive committee, Im now serving as the chair,Ž said Mrs. Mulholland, who spent 20 years as the president and CEO of a hospital in Pennsylv ania. She has a passion for philanthropy and professional knowledge, which will help her to continue to impact the commu-nity as the head of the largest Palm Beach County-based health funder. When she and her husband, Dan, moved to Florida in 2002, the first thing she did was join the Rotary Club. I was the first woman admitted to the Rotary Club in Easton (in Penn sylv ania), so when we bought here I went to my first Rotary meeting and the rest is history,Ž she said. At the meeting she met like-minded people who introduced her to charities she quickly became involved with, includ-ing Foundcare, a federally funded health care center for people who have nowhere else to go; and the Quantum Foundation, which has given Foundcare substantial donations. Other organizations Mrs. Mulholland volunteers her time to include the Center for Family Services and the Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida. She also works with Cancer Alliance of Help and Hope, a charity which has special significance to her since she is a breast cancer survivor and her husband recently died of pancreatic cancer. I appreciate life a lot more after having cancer,Ž she said. Even the bad days are special.Ž Donna MulhollandAge: 65 Where I grew up: The Lehigh Valley in Pennsylv ania Where I live now: Palm Beach and Pennsylv ania Education: I have an undergraduate degree from Carnegie Mellon University and received a law degree from Capital University before being admitted to the bar in Ohio and Penn sylv ania. What brought me to Florida: My late husband, Dan, loved the ocean and loved to fish. And I always envisioned myself enjoying the beach. So we moved to Florida when he retired in 2002. Little did I know I would not be on the beach. Im busy every day. My job now: Chair of the board of trustees for Quantum Foundation My first job and what it taught me: My first paying job was with the state of Ohios Department of Healths Legal Affairs Section. Your first job can be extremely important, not only because you start to experience the pride and self-satisfaction of earning your first paycheck, but because you are able to test if this job represents a path you really want to pur-sue for the rest of your career. You usually start to develop the real-world business skills that you need. A career highlight: My retirement party at the hospital (Easton Hospital in Pennsylv ania) where I was president and CEO. It was huge. I realized that I was so focused on my job I didnt realize I was leaving behind so many friends in what I call my hospital family. Many have kept in touch over the years. To this day I am overwhelmed by the relationships I formed. What I do when Im not working: Im usually in my kitchen. I love to cook and bake. I also spend considerable time working on fundraising activities for some of the nonprofits Im involved with: Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida, Foundcare, the Center for Family Services, Rotary and the Cancer Alliance of Help and Hope (an agency where I have recently become involved because I am a cancer survivor and, unfortunately, recently lost my hus-band to cancer). Best advice for someone looking to be successful: Education is key. Your education is your career opener. Youre going to have bad days, but its how you cope with those bad days that determine how you succeed. About mentors: I have always had powerful personal and professional men-tors in my life. I can trace them back to middle school. I always knew they had my best interest at heart.

After all, they awarded a 1939 Alfa Romeo 8C and 935 Duesenberg SJ-582 as the Best in Show for the sport and elegance classes, respectively, but thats far from the whole story. Because while those are flawlessly beautiful, they might just be two of the least interesting cars at this years event. Its not that these winners are boring, but instead, Amelia Island devotes an entire day to featuring the best automo-tive tales around. For example, there was a 1966 Rolls-Royce Phantom V lim-ousine that Nelson Rockefeller spent years hunting down. And when he finally purchased the one he wanted, fate inter-vened in 1974 and he was appointed vice president. Being a good politician, Rock-efeller couldnt be seen in something so foreign and opulent in his new, elevated position. So he never got to enjoy it. Another great story is James Bonds Aston Martin DB5. The car from 1965s GoldfingerŽ turned Sean Connery and the automaker into legends. There were two DB5s used for the film. Since one disappeared from Boca Raton 20 years ago, having the only known survivor in the Cars of the Movies class was a Blofeld-level coup. Attendees were not only able to get so close to this star car that they could see the little red ejector seat butt on, but also it was an opportunity to get per-sonal with other great movie vehicles. This includes the 1959 Corvette Stingray concept racer that Elvis drove in 1967s Clambake,Ž the 1949 Buick Roadmaster from Rain Man,Ž as well as the 1967 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow and 1967 Fer-rari 275 GTB/4S NART Spider in Steve McQueens The Thomas Crown Affair.Ž Among the many reasons Amelia Island is favored by enthusiasts is it tends to celebrate vehicles that other prestigious car events would not. For example, the Mercedes 300 SL coupes are always a favorite for their sleek body-work. But one of these rare luxury speed machines was retooled for a land speed record by stripping out its leather-clad interior and adding a gaudy hood scoop large enough to inhale a small animal. Other shows would turn their noses at this Mercedes hot rod, but Amelia Island showcases the independent spirit that brought home a 190 mph world record. This inclusive nature has even inspired the carmakers. Nissans luxury arm Infiniti has been around for less than thirty years, but it is getting seri-ous about its extended heritage. Nissan purchased a car company called Prince in the 1960s. Its lineup consisted of larger and more powerful vehicles. And while we might have never heard of Prince in the U.S., its influence was felt with some of the Datsun (later Nissan) sports cars. Infiniti is now taking a more active role in claiming Princes history, and that was first seen when they had an ultra-rare R380 racecar brought in from Japan. It was the toast of its home country in the late 1960s, but Amelia Island was the first time it was ever shown in the U.S. And Japanese cars were not the only ones we had been missing for over half a century. The 1957 Chevrolet Corvette Super Sport concept car was a styling exercise that featured everything from body side scoops to cup holders. But the real rea-son it was so important is because it was used to debut the production 283ci, 283 hp fuel-injected V8 „ an impressive feat at the time to get one horsepower per cubic-inch. The Corvette Super Sport toured New York, Detroit and Chicago before ending up in private hands. And while the car was important, accident damage and legal battles kept it out of the public eye since the 1960s. So to see it restored and driving at Amelia Island demonstrates the gravity and reputation of this Florida show. Those of us who love classic cars also crave a great story to go with them. Ame-lia Island constantly encores these lost and forgotten keystones to our rolling history. And the fact that its in our own Florida backyard means youre going to need a darn good excuse to miss it next year. Q myles 190 mph Mercedes 300SL

Dramaworks gets set to travel to ‘Arcadia’ BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@” oridaweekly.comSome plays, like some people, are smarter than others. Tom Stoppards Arcadia,Ž which opens March 31 at Palm Beach Dramaworks Don & Ann Brown Theatre in West Palm Beach, is the work of a bona fide smart guy. J. Barry Lewis directs. The intellectual play won the Crit-ics Circle Theatre Awards for Best New Play, the Evening Standard Award for Best Play of the Year and, in Britain, the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play, a dis-tinct honor for the Czech-born refugee who found a permanent home in Eng-land after World War II. Mr. Stoppards rsum is enviable. He has four Tony Awards. He won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for Shakespeare In L ove,Ž which dominated the Academy Awards in 1998 with six other wins, including Best Picture and Best Actress for Gwyneth Paltrow. His minorŽ writing awards alone could fill a page. But Mr. Stoppard has also written low-brow for TV, and his BBC origi-nal radio production Darkside,Ž a cel-ebration of the 40th anniversary of Pink Floyds The Dark Side of the MoonŽ album in 2013, is enlightening. Its even rumored that he worked for free and without credit on blockbusters includ-ing 1989s Indiana Jones and the Last CrusadeŽ and 2005s Star Wars: Epi-sode 3 … Revenge of the Sith.Ž Some ask if ArcadiaŽ is the greatest play of our age. The story takes place in an English country house in two time periods, 1809 and at least a century later. The set includes a large table that is used by characters in both time periods, and an old tortoise also is present in HAPPENINGSSEE HAPPENINGS, B10 XARTS & ENTERTAINMENT PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 23-29, 2017 | SECTION B WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT COURTESY IMAGE Northwood theater opens with ‘Starcatcher’ When the musical play Peter and the StarcatcherŽ opens at the Conrad N. Hilton Theatre at the Esther B. OKeeffe Center for Creative Education on March 31, it will mark a milestone „ and fulfill a promise. StarcatcherŽ will be the first production to scuff up the stage of the new theater after more than 10 years of planning, fundraising, designing and building. The show also fulfills the production companys commitment to complete the plays October 2016 run, which was canceled because of Hurri-cane Matthew. But the new theater, with its virgin floors and never-sat-in-before chairs, is finally open and that breathes new excitement into the arts community and people who love live theater. The site for the Conrad N. Hilton Theatre at the Esther B. OKeeffe Cen-ter for Creative Education at 425 24th St., in West Palm Beach, was purchased in 2005. For the last 12 years, bit by bit, the theater has grown, thanks to grants from local benefactors. The CCE received a grant from the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation in 2006 for $1.5 mil-lion and it received a $2 million gift from Esther B. OKeeffe Charitable Foundation in 2015. Both grants came at critical times in the push to complete a modern performing arts center where a vintage skating rink once stood. The 17,306-square-foot former roller rink was built in 1947 in West Palm Beachs Northwood neighborhood and had good bonesŽ „ the theater retained the rinks original Dade County pine trusses, but thats about it.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 23-29, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY A bowl that stirs up a batch of memories COLLECTORS CORNERThe place: Habitat for Humanity ReStore, 1635 N. Dixie Highway, Jupiter; (561) 401-4087 or Cost: $12 The skinny: The bright opaque green of jadite glassware helped usher in a new modern age of kitchenware. The best known is Fire-Kings Jadeite color, first made in the 1940s by Anchor Hocking. But other companies, including Jeannette and McKee, had their own variations on the kitchenware. This jadite bowl, made for Sunbeam in the 1930s or 40s, is well balanced and looks good for everyday use. And, if youre like me, you are sure to stir up a memory or two with one. Q THE FIND: Aunt Cleo Douthit loved to bake. I can see her now in her Pahokee kitchen. It had tall white cabinets that reached to the ceiling, a large 1940s GE range with controls across the top of the back of the stove and a huge 1950s GE refrigerator, with white refrigerator door on the top and a gray freezer door on the bottom. In the breakfast nook stood a yellow Formica and chrome dinette set and in the middle of the kitchen stood an enameled utility table with a Sunbeam Mixmaster that Cleo had received as a wedding present in 1933. From that mixer, she would turn out hundreds of cakes „ heart-shaped strawberry birthday cake layers for my sister and me because our birthdays were in February, and pound cakes by the dozen. Pound cake was a staple of any Southern home. After all, you could bake the cakes in loaf or tube pans and serve them on their own or top them with fruit, ice cream or whatever struck your fancy. Cleo would rev the mixer to beat the eggs, butter and sugar, and that old Sunbeam would give off a slightly acrid smell that lingered until the cake was in the oven and giving forth aromas that promised a sweet end to any meal. Im not sure what happened to Cleos Mixmaster after she died in 1979, but I did manage to keep the Fire-King Jadeite cereal bowls she used for everything from breakfast to dessert. I now have a Sunbeam of my own that gives off that same familiar aroma of so long ago. I also have the recipes, including one for brown sugar pound cake shared by Cleos best friend, Tommie Lee DuBose. When I prepare that, I hear the whir of the mixer, smell the acrid scent of its motor and remember the love that went into baking the cakes.

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 23-29, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYIt was the first show I ever saw. My family went to Toronto and saw it and it was my childhood dream,Ž Ms. Travis said. How many can say they wanted this thing all their life and they are lucky enough for it to happen? Its a dream come true for sure.Ž Andrew Lloyd Webbers musical version of PhantomŽ has played to more than 140 million people in 35 countries in 166 cities around the world with an estimated gross of $6 billion. This version, produced by Cameron Mackintosh and directed by Laurence Connor, boasts a new design and staging while retaining Maria Bjrnsons elabo-rate costumes. The play centers on a troubled love triangle in which the Phantom (Erik) and Christines childhood friend Raoul both vie for Christines affection in a wildly twisting series of events that take place in the depths beneath the Opera House. Ms. Travis has performed the show approximately 500 times as part of the shows North American tour. Its an experience she never tires of because its different every time, depending on the audience and venue. Its awesome to see peoples reaction throughout the country. Audiences are a little bit different wherever we go but ultimately people are so excited for us to be there,Ž Ms. Travis said. Some theaters are a little bit older, some are more modern „ so we kind of just roll with it.Ž Everything from the spectacle of a giant chandelier to the beautiful, ornate costumes and the sophisticated technol-ogy that drives the show will wow the audience, she said. The sets, the chore-ography and the music are all incred-ible, she said. Topping the list is the simplicity of the story followed by the beautiful score, she added. Ms. Travis adores the role of Christine because she gets to portray so many different emotions. And she, like Christine, is a young woman who is also trying to figure out her life. From my perspective this is a story of a young woman who is trying to navi-gate life the best she can. Shes figuring out what type of relationship she wants to be in, where her career is going and the direction of her life in general as she is trying to cope with the death of her father,Ž Ms. Travis said. There are a lot of joys, sorrows, griefs, struggles and successes. Some of her choices are great and some kind of backfire but ultimately she is just trying to do the best she can.Ž Ms. Travis has been singing all her life, something that she began when she was a young child and has morphed into the way she makes her living. From the time I was a kid it was just part of what I did,Ž Ms. Travis said. Its a true blessing to have a job like this as an actor.Ž Q include two visual arts classrooms, the 175-seat black box theatre, a media arts lab, a science lab, restrooms and storage. This flex-spaceŽ is designed so it can accommodate many uses, like student presentations, workshops, and special events, and it can even generate income as rental space. The original plan had a $10 million budget, with $7 million going to con-struction. CEO Robert Hamon said the renovations came in on budget because construction was completed in phases as the money was raised. That plan pro-duced little debt and the astute financial management of the company made it better able to weather the real estate crisis that derailed many businesses in the late 2000s. From the ground up, we planned what we wanted to do,Ž said Jonathon Ortiz-Smykla, the gallery and marketing manager. The centers mission is to promote education by empowering students to grow through art-based education. Arts programs reach inside students, chal-lenging them to grow not just academi-cally, but creatively and socially. This is a digital theater, where children can create their own productions on the computer and see them come to life,Ž Mr. Ortiz-Smylka said. Were offering them something they cant get anywhere else. Students grow through arts-based education in ways they dont through conventional class-room teaching.Ž The CCE offers dozens of arts and enrichment classes that provide an array of experiences for kids and fami-lies, including Family Art & Fun, Intro-duction to Ukulele, Plein Air Painting, Dance Exlporation, Sculpture & Mixed Media, Music Together Class, Toastmas-ters, Drawing Fundamentals and even Capoeira: Brazilian Martial Art. Its also home to a professional exhibition spaceŽ that displays work of local artists. The third annual Collabora-tions and Mixed Mediums,Ž a Charitable Fine Art Exhibition, opened March 18, featuring the work of more than 40 art-ists. The exhibition will be on display through April 22. But the founders also want to bring great theater to the stage, and StarcatcherŽ fit the bill. Peter and the StarcatcherŽ won five Tony Awards in 2012 and was named to the Top Ten lists by both The New York Times and New York Magazine. Based on the best-selling novel by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson, the show was adapted by writer Rick Elice and a cre-ative team that included directors Roger Rees and Alex Timbers and composer Wayne Barker. Peter, a young orphan and an unlikely hero, is shipped off with his band of brothers to an island ruled by an evil king. The story explores the depths of despair and the cruelty of greed, as well as the bonds of friendship that cannot be broken and the enduring quality of love. Director Carlo-Rufino Sabusap says Peter and the StarcatcherŽ is his favor-ite play. This production is by EntrActe Theatrix, a not-for-profit, semi-profes-sional, showcase theater company in West Palm Beach. Mr. Ortiz-Smylka encourages visitors to stop in and see whats happening. Were always looking for new ways to expand our audience.Ž Q PHANTOMFrom page 1THEATERFrom page 1 “Phantom of the Opera”>> When: March 23-April 1 >> Where : Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach >> Cost: Tickets start at $31. >> Info: 832-7469 or “Peter and the Starcatcher”>> When: March 31-April 9. >> Show times: 7:30 p.m. March 31, April 1, April 7 and 8, 2 p.m. April 1 and 8, and 3 p.m. April 2 and 9. >> Where: Conrad N.

LATEST FILMS‘Beauty and the Beast’ ++ Is it worth $10? YesThe cartoon is better.Thats what youre wondering, right? The new Beauty and the BeastŽ is a live action remake of Disneys (arguably) greatest musical, so the comparisons are certainly fair. The 1991 BeastŽ is, with due respect to The Little MermaidŽ (1989), the film that reignited the bril-liance of Disney animation, and it was the first animated film nominated for a Best Picture Oscar. So to remake it, as DreamgirlsŽ director Bill Condon has done, is to travel in sacred territory. And you know what?The cartoon is better.To be sure, its not for lack of trying. The production design, costumes and visual effects are stunning, so no expense was spared in getting this $160 million production to the big screen. If anything, it feels like too much: The songs (and lyrics) that are added, Belles backstory, a new character and other embellish-ments all feel like excess. The original is so embedded in our minds that to mess with perfection seems, well, beastly. The filmmakers will no doubt say this is Beauty and the BeastŽ for a new gen-eration. They might be right. People of 2017 crave more flash, distractions and immediate satisfaction than people did in 1991, so in a way its fitting that this BeastŽ remake is so exuberant. Still, did no one at Disney question the necessity of bloating an 84-minute classic to 129 minutes? You know its different from the start. The prologue is interrupted to show the Prince/Beast (Dan Stevens) at a party surrounded by women as Madame Gard-erobe (Audra McDonald) sings. This is a bold m ove, and all we can think is: Why would Condon interrupt a perfect way to start the movie with this superfluous backstory?Ž Shortly thereafter we meet Belle (Emma Watson), a bookworm in a small French village whose father (Kevin Kline) is the towns kooky inventor. She dreams of having something more in her provincial life „ if for no other reason than to get away from the brutish Gaston (Luke Evans) and his stooge Le Fou (Josh Gad) „ and she unexpectedly gets it. Soon Belle is held captive in a remote castle by a Beast and his talking fur-niture. Thankfully for her, candelabra Lumiere (Ewan McGregor), clock Cog-sworth (Ian McKellen), teapot Mrs. Potts (Emma Thompson) and her son Chip (Nathan Mack) are perfectly nice. But if the Beast doesnt find true love before the last petal on his rose falls, everyone who lives in the castle will be doomed to his or her new form forever. Every song, except one, is better in the animated version. Thats not to say theyre done poorly, its just that youll notice the small differences, such as the added verse in Be Our Guest,Ž and wonder why they added it. That said, the performances and voice work are strong, particularly Mr. Gad as Le Fou, who gives us a better version of GastonŽ than the animated film provides. Ms. Watson sings sweetly, endearing us from the start with BelleŽ and easily getting us to like our heroine. Ms. Thompsons rendition of the title song is nice but not memorable. Beauty and the BeastŽ is good enough to satisfy our natural curiosity in want-ing to see it, but its clearly inferior to its predecessor. Ironically, it does itself a disservice by trying too hard and adding too much. Sometimes leaving well enough alone really is the best way to go. Q dan >> The ballroom in this rendition of “Beauty and the Beast” has 12,000 square feet of faux marble and 10 glass chandeliers. FILM CAPSULESThe Sense of an Ending ++ (Jim Broadbent, Emily Mortimer, Charlotte Rampling) An elderly British man (Mr. Broadbent) has trouble retrieving a diary that is in the possession of the woman (Ms. Rampling) who was his girl-friend 40 years earlier. There are some nice themes and performances, but the ending, ironically, leaves a bit to be desired. Rated PG-13. Kong: Skull Island ++ (Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson) In 1973, a group of explorers encounters a giant ape and other creatures on a remote island in the South Pacific. The action and effects are impressive, but the story takes a turn for the worse in its second half. If you go, see it in IMAX 3D, as the visuals are tremendous. Rated PG-13.Before I Fall ++ (Zoey Deutch, Halston Sage, Jennifer Beals) After dying in a car accident, a teenager wakes to relive the same day until ƒ well, thats what she needs to fig-ure out. Its Groundhog DayŽ as a teen girl drama, and though it has some intriguing ideas, it plays out in pretty standard ways. Rated PG-13.Fist Fight + (Ice Cube, Charlie Day, Tracy Morgan) A public high school teacher (Mr. Day) gets his colleague (Mr. Cube) fired after tattling on him after he destroyed a student-occupied desk with an axe. Its crass and unrealistic, but worst of all, its an unfunny mish-mash of a high school that is truly out of this world. Rated R. Q
