COMMENTARYA ‘Mad Max’ worldPresident Trump is only about halfway through his first 100 days, but you cant discount the brevity of his tenure as a measure of its effects. It is an object lesson in how badly things can go at the highest level of government when a nation loses its moral compass. It is a sin to which we all are vulnerable. It could, for example, explain why Christianity is in decline in America. Too many Christians have for-gotten how to behave and act like one. Moral disconnects often produce contradictions in behavior, attitudes and values. We see evidence of this as the conservative majority in Congress lum-bers toward destroying the nations social safety net and shreds environmental pro-tections. There can be no genuine regard for the sanctity of life if its loudest propo-nents willingly destroy the planet upon which all life depends. Neither are the pious credible who spout The Golden Rule, even as they would up-end the lives of 24 million vulnerable people „ the poor, the old, the young, the disabled „ by denying them health care as a human right, all the while shilling for silver for the rich. It is a slippery slope. Can America be made great or safe again by insulting those to whom we have historically given our trust and protection and who recipro-cate with trust and protection in kind? By design or default, we impugn the integrity of our friends and do injury to our global alliances. The injection of uncertainty frays the fragile bonds protecting us all from global disaster. We treat contracts of conscience as if they mean nothing. So, if push comes to shove and sides must be taken, which nations will heed our call? Will we heed the call of others? What will be the measure of our loyalty and faithfulness to our democratic values and the country for which they stand? Only for so long as it is convenient? Which side are we on and will it be just we who are on it? Our president announces the rebirth of nationalism and lock-down time in Amer-ica. The country is to gird itself in the military, build walls and keep the world at bay. National security is a wedge with which to dismantle the commonwealth upon which a civil society depends „ arts, culture, humanities, education and public spaces. Clean air and water are expend-able. Fear makes us malleable in the hands of conspirators who traffic in dark and dystopian ideas It fuels militarization of a civilian army and promotes the plausibility of a civilian war. It feeds the insistence we outlaw gun-free zones and permit universal access to military-style weapons. It usurps thou shalt not killŽ and replaces it with thou shalt stand your ground.Ž These seismic shifts signal the dawning of a Mad MaxŽ world in the Age of the Anthropocene. Though scientists dont suggest this newly proposed, human epoch begins with Trumps presidency, every indication is he will accelerate its worst consequences. Some months ago, Damien Carrington of The Guardian reported that a group of scientists said it was time to acknowledge the profound effect of humans on the Earth. They recommended to the Inter-national Geological Congress that it offi-cially declare the end of Holocene, the current epoch, and the beginning of the Anthropocene. They argue the Holocene epoch encapsulates 12,000 years of stable climate since the last ice age during which all human civilization developed.Ž But things have gone downhill rapidly since, they say, starting about 1950, driven by carbon diox-ide emissions, sea level rise, deforestation, global mass extinctions and unchecked development. Oddly, because chickens are the globes most prevalent bird, chicken bones will be the future fossils that most define Anthropocene. Other markers are radio-active elements in the atmosphere from nuclear bombs and the ubiquity of plastic, concrete and toxic chemicals in our envi-ronments. Assuming scientists reach consensus and formally establish Anthropocene, American baby boomers have a front row seat on humans advancing Earths decline and share responsibility in hastening it, at least in this country. Consider that President Trumps proposed 2018 budget includes a reduction in overall funding for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) by $2.6 billion or 31 percent. The cuts eliminate 3,200 jobs within the agency and axe programs to clean up the Chesapeake Bay, the Great Lakes and waterways critical to sustaining clean water supplies for future genera-tions of Americans. As for climate change research and climate-related initiatives, forget about it. This proposal has not yet come to pass. But its trajectory is alarming, even if these proposals arent approved. Those defending the cuts say they allow the feds to return funding responsibility of other programs to local and state governments.Ž It brought to mind Flint, Mich., and we know how well that went. Anthropocene means the consequences are global if human beings continue to act as if they have a blank check to abuse the planet at will. Unless we change our spendthrift ways, more than the planet is threatened. Q „ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

Coinci-dentally Ive remained married and stayed alive. Thats 500 weeks as a paid hot-air bag. Thats 500 ideas, 500 reflections, 500 opin-ions „ about issues and events, about liv-ing honorably, about managing or leading. About being an American, a man, a woman (Im no expert), an alien (Im an expert), a parent, a child. About sex. About art. About wilderness. About home life. About love. Sure, about politics and religion, too.I wasnt confident I could muster the words for four or five columns let alone 500 when I started, but writing is like drawing: You come to understand what you already know. Or you begin to see what you already glimpsed. On April 5, 2007 „ exactly two days after my oldest son, Evan, turned 27 (hes a Florida Weekly writer, now) and one day after my youngest son, Nash, turned 5 (and fell off our donkey, breaking his collarbone) „ I announced my intention to join a club: the Native Florida club. And why not?Ž I wrote in that inaugural issue and my first-ever column. Last week I counted no less than three NATIVE FLORDA bumper stickers, all of them on pickups. I wondered: Why should an accident of birth tag me with any particu-lar label? If I have to shave my head, plug my cheek with tobacco, drive a Ford 350 with a BEEF bumper sticker and shoot hogs at dawn or dusk, Ill do it. Well, maybe Ill do it. By the way,Ž I added, not one of the drivers ƒ looked anything at all like a Calusa or even a Seminole Indian, but how can you judge a book by its cover? Im sure they were really, truly NATIVE. I trust them on that because their trucks are so big.Ž I still havent made the list of those who can call themselves NATIVE FLORIDA, even after trying for 10 years. But my potent little print baby has.Born here, Florida Weekly pulled itself up by the ink-straps (if not the bootstraps), like any self-respecting native. In that newborn edition, the co-owner and executive editor, Jeff Cull „ a Naval Academy graduate and now retired Navy commander who flew jets off carriers and later became a fine investigative reporter „ also had two bylines. Talk about a hat trick.Heres how his lead story began.Main headline: Millions in cash unclaimed: State has $17 million for thou-sands in Lee.Ž Lead sentence: Florida has $17 million in cash to give back to Lee County residents and businesses „ all you have to do is ask.Ž No wonder we survived the recession. No wonder Florida Weekly became a robust model of solid reporting and storytelling for more than 200,000 readers across eight edi-tions, each week: We showed readers there was money in the news business, not just stylish storytelling. Still is, and thats why advertisers embrace us. Our readers are smart, ambitious, suc-cessful men and women who pay attention, and who prosper from paying attention. Advertisers can do no better than tapping into an entire market of them. That said, let me also say this: Columnists are not always embraced by readers, and thus not by advertisers „ especially if they adopt the unvanquished and unvarnished principle of the great Chicago writer and humorist, Finley Peter Dunne. The job of the newspaper,Ž Dunne once wrote in the Chicago Evening Post, is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfort-able.Ž Asking questions (the business of news reporters), or offering opinions (the busi-ness of columnists), will indisputably afflict the comfortable from time to time. But most Americans understand that, including Florida Weekly readers and advertisers. They like learning and know-ing, as it turns out, even if it makes them a little uncomfortable. They dont have to agree with us or with me (my opinions do not necessarily reflect those of the papers owners). Instead, theyll make up their own minds, thank you very much. We count on that. I imagine that was how Finley Peter Dunne looked at it, too. As a writer who exposed affectation and hypocrisy through undercutting humor and common sense,Ž in the words of one reviewer, he lucked into some great readers, as I have. In his case, Theodore Roosevelt happened to be a frequent target of Dunnes columns and a devoted reader, a history remembered in The Almanac of Theodore Roosevelt.Ž When Dunnes critical columns became a litmus test of public opinion,Ž they were read at presidential cabinet meetings. Mr. Roosevelt once wrote to Dunne: I regret to state that my family and intimate friends are delighted with your review of my book. Now I think you owe me one; and I shall expect that when you next come east you pay me a visit. I have long wanted the chance of making your acquaintance.ŽFlorida Weekly readers are often like that: gracious in all weathers, with a sense of humor and tolerance. Even the ones who are, in fact, native Floridians. Theyll likely understand why Ive adopted the strategy of my wife, The News-Press writer Amy Bennett Williams: Shes now NATIVE FLORIDAŽ by love and choice, rather than birth (Illinois in her case, Colo-rado in mine). Her Florida,Ž as I wrote a decade ago in that first column, is a state of both prin-ciple and geography. Ill call it the 51st State. Maybe I should have that bumper sticker made up, then slap the thing on her car: NATIVE FLORIDA, 51st STATE. Look for it on local roads soon. Be proud. Youre probably a native, too.Ž Q roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com How the GOP crackup happensEditors Note: House Republicans pulled legislation to repeal the Affordable Care Act.Less than two weeks after the unveiling of the GOP Obamacare replacement, the party is already staring into the abyss. The bill has had the worst rollout of any major piece of legislation in memory, and failure is very much an option. If the proposal falters, it will be a political debacle that could poison President Donald Trumps relationship with Congress for the duration. That relationship is awkward and tenuous, a product of how the Republican sweep of 2016 was won on separate tracks. Trump tore up many Republican orthodoxies and found a different way to unlock the electoral map. Congressional Republicans more or less stuck with the usual script. As a result, there is no significant Trumpist wing in Congress. And there was no off-the-shelf Trump legislation that Congress could begin on immediately. In the campaign, Trump identified a constituency and a mes-sage, but the agenda often was symbolic (Mexico will pay for the wall) or nebulous (negotiating better trade deals). The natural reflex, then, was to defer to the Republican leadership in Congress, whose priorities are Obamacare repeal and tax reform. It is true that Trump promised to deliver on both, but neither was part of his core message or won over marginal Trump voters. For now, it is in the interest of both Congress and Trump to make their shotgun marriage work. If the health bill falters in the House, though, it will be the most fraught moment of GOP tension since the release of the Access HollywoodŽ tape. Except the question wont be whether congressmen and senators dump Trump, but whether Trump dumps them. Even more than most politicians, Trump has no interest in owning failure. The expla-nation of the president and his supporters wont be that he backed a flawed strategy and bill in the House and paid the price. It will be that he was stabbed in the back. He went along with a GOP establishment politics that doesnt understand or care about Trump voters, and he can never make that mistake again. Theres almost no question that Trump would win any blame game. He would have the larger megaphone, and much sharper elbows. He could instantly define Paul Ryan as a creature of the Washington swamp and decide to triangulate away from the GOP Congress rather than work with it. This would mean Trump would be a president not without a party necessarily, but without a Congress. It would make major legislative accomplishments impossible, although if Obamacare repeal-and-replace fails, that might be the reality regardless. Some skeptics of the Ryan bill hope that its defeat will allow the party to quickly move on to tax reform. But tax legislation wont be any easier. It, too, is highly complex and will disappoint populists when it emerg-es that the Republican template for reform doesnt take much account of the interests of working-class voters. It is better for everyone that Obamacare repeal-and-replace succeed. Ryan should amend his bill to, among other things, get the coverage numbers up and make it a sturdier vehicle for the turbulence ahead. The alter-native is a defeat that may precipitate a nasty, perhaps enduring, split in a party desperate to paper over its divisions.

Dr. Mehmet Oz returns to Palm Beach County for the fifth annual WPBF 25 Health & Safety Festival on April 1 at The Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens. And this year, hes bringing a friend. Joining the wise and wonderful Dr. Oz as his special guest is Good Morning Ameri-caŽ news anchor and health advocate Amy Robach. Her candid book on her triumph over breast cancer, Better: How I Let Go of Control, Held On to Hope, and Found Joy in My Darkest Hour,Ž was published in September, 2015, just two years after she announced her diagnosis on television. The New York Times bestseller has helped other women who were struggling and Ms. Robach speaks candid-ly about her journey, and shares her advice for living a happier, healthier life. Michele Jacobs, the corporate director of marketing/ops Florida for The Forbes Co., the family company that owns The Gar-dens Mall, said, Amy is a really interesting and dynamic woman. When her health cri-sis happened, she came through it in a very public way, and she shared it with the pub-lic, which is really hard to do. She has such grace. I really admire her. And she probably saved some lives.Ž The Forbeses „ founder Sidney and his sons Nathan and David „ see themselves as community partners whose responsibility includes pro-viding free events and experiences you wouldnt get anywhere else. The family is very philanthropic and socially conscious,Ž Ms. Jacobs said. Honestly, I was always interested in giving back and being a good citizen, but over the last nine years, working with the Forbes, Ive learned how important it is to do your part.Ž This is the fifth year for this event, and every year we gain momentum,Ž Ms. Jacobs said. Last year about 10,000 people came out.Ž Many of them came to see and hear Dr. Oz, she said. I think that Dr. Oz is so approachable and that's why folks like him so much. He speaks to the crowd as if you are the only one he is talking to and his information and anecdotes are so relatable. That makes him so very special." Dr. Oz also will lead a discussion among a panel of local medical professionals who will discuss medical topics ranging from aging well to the Zika virus to medical marijuana to saving lives with CPR. Dozens of local wellness experts will speak, answer questions, staff booths to provide detailed health information and provide product samples. Get information on living better through better nutrition, natural beauty tips and product samples to keep you looking your best. New this year is a focus on personal safety. Feedback from last year said safety was an important issue to Palm Beach County residents. One of the presentations will be done by the local sheriffs deputies, and theyll talk about personal safety and being aware of your surroundings. We take the security and safety of our guests very seriously and we have great security measures in place,Ž Ms. Jacobs said. Security personnel are a visible presence at the mall and the mall lighting and security surveillance are critical tools to ensure guests are safe. Guests also can get tips and information from representatives from The Justice Net-work, The Center for Missing and Exploited Children, and the Palm Beach County Sher-riffs Office. Guests will learn about local safety programs and how to keep children safer. Ask how you can safeguard your child with a free child ID kit. WPBF 25 News personalities will be on hand, too. Anchors Felicia Rodriguez, Todd McDermott, Tiffany Kenney, Erin Guy, Mark Kelly, Stephanie Berzinski, Mike Lyons, San-dra Shaw, Cris Martinez, Vanessa Vinent, Taylor Grenda and Sanika Dange are sched-uled to appear.

Her results were normal for the most part, but the fecal exam turned up an unexpected parasite: Eimeria spp. Dogs and cats are not normally hosts of this genus of coccidian parasites. Its more commonly found in the intestinal tracts of birds such as geese and ducks, who may suffer diarrhea and even death if infected. How did Harper end up hosting an avian parasite? Well, we live near a lake, and she is extremely fond of snacking on goose droppings when she can get away with it. Apparently, they are the canine version of pate de foie gras. Fortunately, this type of Eimeria isnt infective to dogs or cats. For that reason, its known as a pseudoparasite, or false parasite. It passes through the intestines and doesnt require treatment. Other ani-mals that carry Eimeria that isnt infective to pets include rabbits and deer. This doesnt mean that eating poop is safe for your dog. This habit, known as coprophagy, derives from the Greek words copros,Ž meaning feces, and phagein,Ž meaning to eat.Ž Dogs like Harper who chow down on goose poop can be at risk for salmo-nella or Campylobacter bacteria, both of which can cause diarrhea in dogs. Rarely, they may suffer severe diarrhea, but most dogs with healthy immune systems arent affected. If you know your dog has a goose-poop habit and he suffers a case of the runs, that may be the cause. Check with your veterinarian if the diarrhea con-tinues for 48 hours or more. Infected bird droppings are also the source of a fungal infection called histo-plasmosis. Its common in the Midwest, in the Ohio and Mississippi river valleys, in the area surrounding the Great Lakes, and in parts of Canada. Young, large-breed dogs seem most likely to develop the disease, especially if they live in those areas and have prolonged exposure to Histoplasma-having organisms. One study found that other dogs at greater risk of histoplasmosis are pointers, Weimaraners and Brittanys. Thats likely because these hunting breeds spend more time outdoors. Signs of histoplasmosis are vague: mild fever, depression, weight loss and loss of appetite. Some dogs develop labored breathing or a chronic cough. X-rays, urinalysis and blood tests can rule out other problems with the same signs. A definitive diagnosis requires microscopic examination of cells from lymph nodes or tissue samples. The disease is treated with antifungal agents. Treatment can take up to six months to be successful, and not all dogs survive. Birds arent the only culprits when it comes to spreading disease. Dogs can acquire coccidiosis from eating the waste of infected dogs. Co ccidian pro tozoa infective to dogs are Cystoisospora canis, Cys-toisospora ohioensis, Cystoisospora neo-rivolta and Cystyisospora burrowski. Cats can be infected by Cystoisospora felis and Cystoisospora rivolta. Pets infected with one of these parasites may not show signs. Adult animals may shed the oocysts in their feces but other-wise be symptom-free. Puppies and kit-tens are at highest risk, suffering diarrhea, weight loss and dehydration. Stress can make the disease worse. In severe cases, young animals may die. The good news is that cats and dogs cant transmit coccidiosis to each other. Even better, they cant transfer it to humans.Lastly, many dogs love snacking on cat poop. That can be the source of round-worms, tapeworms, toxoplasmosis and giardia. One way to prevent your dog from taking up this nasty habit is to scoop the litter box once or twice daily to remove temptation. If possible, place it in an area thats accessible to the cat but not the dog.

Williams. First Coast Pub-lishers. 350 pages. Trade paperback, $15.95.This fascinating techno-thriller grows out of the reality of nonstop cyberwar that, while largely invisible, is constantly going on all around us. Not only do nations spy on one another by hacking computers, in both the public and private sectors of enemies and friends, bandit freelancers are also at work. National infrastructures are vulnerable. Whats to keep major elec-tronic grids safe from cyber attack? T.L. Williams imagines a situation in which China devotes its computer resourc-es to bringing down the U.S. financial sys-tem and thereby collapsing confidence in the dollar as the worlds reserve currency. This outc ome would be a giant step toward China surpassing the U.S. as the worlds sole or dominant superpower. Cyberwars have complex offensive and defensive elements, and Mr. Williams portrays the technological strategies and tac-tics in fascinating detail. He brings us to the highest level of the U.S. security establishment and shows its bureaucratic workings, allowing read-ers to eavesdrop on the decision-making conversa-tions of the key players. He also takes us into their private thoughts. The catalytic moment is the discovery of a com-munication from a middle-rank Chinese technocrat who is at once in charge of a Chinese offensive and also motivated to come overŽ to the American side. Someone needs to be selected who has the experience and skills to be Lis American handler. Astonishingly, this person is Logan Alexander, the central character in Mr. Wil-liams earlier novels, Unit 400: The Assas-sinsŽ and Coopers Revenge.Ž The plot progresses through a Tom Clancy-like bombardment of technologi-cal detail, a soup bowl full of acronyms for government agencies (both Ameri-can and Chinese), the shared expertise of U.S. cyberwar specialists and the physical movements of the key players. More than most novels with China settings, this one takes us not only to familiar places like Hong Kong, but also to far less known areas of that fascinating country. Readers also spend time in Washington, D.C., and environs, Thailand, New England and elsewhere. In each of these settings, Mr. Williams portrays terrain, neighborhoods, individual build-ings, offices, residences, and laboratories with vivid authority. He also details transportation and com-munication systems with great skill. Over and over, he puts his characters and readers on the spot,Ž reacting to the physical and emotional environment „ the mate-rial and societal culture. And there is plenty of emotion, the fear of dis-covery being dominant. Logans tradecraft is on display throughout the novel. His stealthy movement to avoid being noticed, his simple but effective disguises and his meticulous exploration of the locations all are instru-mental to his plan. There is also a good dose of domestic emotion: the relationship between Logan and his wife and their son, the strained feelings between Li and his son after Lis wife commits suicide, the despair of a woman whose husband has sold out to the Chinese. In a story like this one, the security of communications is of the greatest impor-tance. How are agency and interagency communications kept secure? How do Logan and Li keep in touch without having their connection discovered? How are loyalty and dependability assured? After all, everyone is spying on everyone else „ or striving to escape detection. Though this dimension of awareness the author offers is eerie and even repulsive, it is only an extreme version of what contemporary life has become. Of course, in Zero DayŽ the stakes are much higher than being duped by a robocall or the temptation to click on a hyperlink that will put your bank account in jeopardy. Here, the world order is up for grabs. For all the laborious detail, the switches of setting and the explanations of complex process, the novels suspense keeps mount-ing. Through Logans experience, Mr. Wil-liams replicates the blend of terrifying situations and the necessary professional calm and control required for survival and success. The author, who makes his home in Ponte Vedra Beach, is working on his fourth novel in the Logan Alexander series. It puts Logan back in Boston, where he is drawn into the shadowy world of ISIS-inspired terrorism. With surprise appearances by characters from Coopers Revenge,Ž this book makes a statement about the need for constant vigilance against terrorists plotting to strike at the heart of the Home-land. Q „ Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 30-APRIL 5, 2017 NEWS A15 BEHIND THE WHEELHyundai Ioniq Hybrid is economy without boasting A decade ago, all a car had to do was have hybridŽ in its name to feel special. Since then the technology has become more economical and gas/electric power has gone mainstream. So as Hyundai introduces its Ioniq, it needs to be truly special to make a lasting impression. The name for this hatchback comes from the idea of collaborating an electri-cally charged ion with a unique vehicle. Ion + unique = Ioniq. And in a funny way, this Hyundai lives up to its somewhat odd moniker. The Ioniq is not one vehicle „ its actually a line of cars. The regular hybrid is arriving in dealer showrooms this month, and so thats where this review will focus. But a fully electric version will be avail-able in limited quantities towards the summer, and a plug-in hybrid will be on sale before the end of the year. Because none of these are standard gasoline-only vehicles, Hyundai has given them a dedicated exterior design within its lineup. The face carries the same hex-agonal grille and large side ducts with LED light markers seen elsewhere in the corporate family, but everything feels more streamlined. The rake of the lights, the hatchback profile, and even the special wheels „ all give hints that it wants to economically slip through the world with as little wind resistance as possible. But the overall impression is the Ioniq doesnt try to look special (a few valets might even confuse this with a Hyundai Elantra.) This ambiguity actually contributes to its uniqueness. After all, many dedicated hybrid vehicles out there like the Toyota Prius and Chevrolet Volt look different from the purely gas-powered machines. The Ioniqs design easily fits into the Hyundai family, and so drivers can save the Earth without having to look like Cap-tain Planet everywhere they go. The story is similar on the inside, too. The Ioniq benefits from the same pre-mium materials that go into the rest of Hyundais sedan lineup. And while other dedicated hybrid cars love to remind driv-ers about economy, this interior gives few clues that this is a hybrid „ other than a dedicated dial in the gauge panel. There are a few display screens that chart the flow between the gas and electric motors, but they have to be chosen specifically on the seven-inch touchscreen, or else it will just be a normal infotainment display. Also, just like a good Hyundai, the Ioniq comes loaded right out of the box. Besides the standard touchscreen, there is dual zone climate control, Bluetooth con-nectivity, a backup camera, and plenty of fingertip controls on the steering wheel. All of this comes on the base BlueŽ model that starts at $23,035. The next package level adds $1,750 and includes more safety with blind sport detection and cross-traf-fic radar. That kind of pricing gets attention „ even from those who dont want to be eco-minded. And thats its true distinction. The Ioniq always feels like a normal car. Thats no small feat considering hybrids reduce weight wherever they can to help maximize fuel economy. So despite a crash diet, the Ioniqs doors still close with authority, the steering feels deliberate, and it doesnt get blown around by the wind. The 1.6-liter motor works with the AC electric motor for a combined output of 139 horsepower. As expected, this is no sports car. But the Ioniq isnt afraid to sac-rifice economy for power when the time is right. That makes merging onto inter-states and closing the traffic gaps happen without a second thought. And there are no red lights or wilting tree graphics from the dashboard to browbeat drivers who are indulgent with the gas. But those who drive this like it was intended will be rewarded. The Ioniq is rated at 55 to 58 mpg city/highway. Thats slightly more efficient than the bench-mark Toyota Prius. Even under careful, real-world driving, our test car returned near those figures. Competitive price, competitive economy, and an eye towards mass appeal „ the Hyundai Ioniq is a gas/electric hybrid for all. And the plug-in and pure electric ver-sions have a similar focus. This is a new approach to the green car market, and the true appeal is that you dont have to be green-minded to participate. Q myles KORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

H.R. 610, a bill introduced Jan. 23 to the House Committee on Education and the Workforce and sponsored by representative Steve King (R-Iowa) and co-sponsored by Andy Harris (R-Mary-land) and Trent Franks (R-Arizona), would repeal the act. This has resulted in public uproar on social media, particularly on behalf of students with exceptional needs. H.R. 610 makes no reference to safeguarding the Individuals with Disabili-ties Education Act, or IDEA, and its provisions for a free and appropriate public education for students with spe-cial needs. While the language of H.R. 610 does not specifically mention IDEA or free and appropriate public education, it is not a far leap to worry about (its repeal), too.Ž Mrs. Boyd says. The major concern with H.R. 610 is that it repeals ESEA, which I find unthinkable.Ž Though the organization Kimberly McCarten serves takes no public stand on school vouchers, Ms. McCarten agrees. As president and CEO of The Arc of Palm Beach County, a provider of services, education and advocacy for children and adults with developmental disabilities, Ms. McCarten says, We are concerned that the current version of H.R. 610 lacks essential protections for students with disabilities. This bill makes no reference to IDEA, which guarantees free and appropriate public education.ŽESEA and IDEAESEA was authorized in 1965 as part of President Lyndon B. Johnsons War on Poverty,Ž in an effort to serve the edu-cational needs of historically neglected students by funding the reformation of public schools. The U.S. government has reauthorized the act every five years since, introducing various revisions in its subtitles, and sometimes renaming the act. (In 2001, President George W. Bush reauthorized ESEA and renamed it No Child Left Behind.Ž In the 2015 reau-thorization, President Barack Obama renamed it Every Student Succeeds Act,Ž or ESSA. Because of its historical significance, the 52-year-old act will be referred to as ESEA in this story.) In 1969, Richard Nixon signed ESEA amendments, which included Title VI, dedicated to the education of individu-als with disabilities. Though it is an act separate from ESEA, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, or IDEA, originated in 1975 as Education for All Handicapped Children. Like ESEA, it has undergone a number of revisions, including the name change to IDEA in 1990. For children with special needs, ESEA provides protections, among them: alternative standards and assess-ments; appropriate accommodations (including assistive technology); and comprehensive diagnostic reporting. IDEAs protections include the assur-ance of a free, appropriate public educa-tion tailored to their individual needs; an individualized education program; education in the least restrictive envi-ronment; appropriate evaluation, and other provisions. Because the two acts provide protections and assurances for students with special needs, it is understandable that parents and guardians might be con-cerned ESEAs repeal could mean the eradication of IDEA, as well. Though H.R. 610 indicates nothing about IDEA, it is the very absence of mention that is most disconcerting to those most affected by ESEAs repeal. And because ESEA emphasizes equal access to education for students with disabilities and others, it sets standards for accountability so that no child is left behindŽ and every student succeeds,Ž as former presidents Bush and Obama would have it. If ESEA is repealed as part of H.R. 610s proposed voucher program,Ž the implications for students with disabilities are unclear, and the promise of this population attaining the highest level of educational success possible could be more nebulous than ever. We reached out to parents, advocates, teachers, institutions of higher learning and Florida lawmakers for comment about how repealing ESEA might affect students with disabilities. Although communication was exchanged with their offices, none of the lawmakers contacted provided statements about H.R. 610 and the repeal of ESEA.Sharon Boyd: Parent and advocateMrs. Boyd (founder of Parents in Action, www.parentsinactioninc.org) provided Florida Weekly the following synopsis:Losing the provisions of the ESEA would move us more than 40 years backward in special education advocacy in a time when we are just seeing some groundbreaking decisions coming out of the Supreme Court. We are still fighting for the most basic rights on local fronts, especially in areas such as Southwest Florida. We are advocating child by child, district by district, for access to general education curriculum, specialized curriculum, inclusion, against restraint and seclusion and accurate reporting of when it is used and proper training of staff. Special Education programs in Southwest Florida schools are woefully underfunded because the monies to the regular education programs are also woefully underfunded. A voucher system does not take into consideration the additional costs of educating individuals with special needs. The additional costs must be met by parents, and if the parents are unable, private schools will not be an option. This leaves them with public schools that will have even less funding than before ƒ or homeschooling. Homeschooling often is not an option for kids with special needs because their parents do not have the specialized training to meet their needs. This brings us back to the elimination of ESEA, because one of the provisions being lost is the access to evidencebased interventions and general education curriculum. Basically, our kids with special needs will have no rights to make progress in their education. We, as a nation, will no longer be responsible for our most vulnerable citizens education beyond the very minimum. This is the beginning of a very slippery slope.The educator of educatorsDoug Carothers, Ed.D., associate professor and chairman of the Department of Teacher Education at Florida Gulf Coast University, believes the social media concern about repealing ESEA, should H.R. 610 become law, bears con-sideration.BILLFrom page 1Immediately after introducing H.R. 610 as the “Choices in Education Act of 2017,” the bill’s first subparagraph addresses neither vouchers nor student nutrition. Instead, it reads: “Repeal — The Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965.” This has resulted in public uproar on social media, particularly on behalf of students with exceptional needs.WHITE HOUSE PRESS PHOTOPresident Lyndon B.

H.R. 610>> H.R. 610 was introduced Jan. 23 to the House Committee on Education and the Workforce. It was spon-sored by Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) and co-sponsored by Andy Harris (R-Maryland) and Trent Franks (R-Arizona), “To distribute Federal funds for elementary and secondary edu-cation in the form of vouchers for eligible students and to repeal a certain rule relating to nutri-tion standards in schools.” >> Immediately after introduc-ing H.R. 610 as the “Choices in Education Act of 2017,” the bill’s rst subparagraph addresses neither vouchers nor student nutrition.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 30-APRIL 5, 2017 NEWS A17Dr. Carothers also serves FGCUs Department of Curriculum, Instruction and Culture in its College of Education. He calls H.R. 610s proposed voucher legislation ridiculous.Ž It seems like a clear attack on public education, without having the courage to come right out and say it,Ž Dr. Caroth-ers said. It seems to me that one of the largest issues in relation to the education of students with disabilities is that there is no requirement that they be accepted by private schools.Ž This, he says, would leave an option for private schools to accept only students who are easiest to serve, leaving students with special needs, for example, to be served by public schools. And that, he says, would leave public schools increasingly chal-lenged and underfunded. He also notes that the bill does not require public or private schools to pro-vide services to special needs students from ages 3-21. This means that students with disabilities would not receive the same duration of services required by IDEA, he notes. Without scouring every possible exception, it looks like the social media claims are largely true,Ž Dr. Carothers says. I can clearly state that I consider this a bad law for our public schools, our children, and the future of our nation.Ž A battle-scarred momRegardless of any acts provisions, there are always exceptions. A Fort Myers mother who wishes to remain anonymous has battle scars from dealing with her sons autism and securing what is best for him, physically, educationally and residentially. Well refer to her as Mrs. Phillips, and to her son as Nate. When Nate became increasingly violent at home and every intervention failed, Mrs. Phillips was forced to make the most difficult decision of her life: to find a suitable placement for her young teenage son in a group home. She found the perfect place for him, where he now lives happily and attends public school. Its the first time hes ever loved school,Ž Mrs. Phillips says about Nates Leon County educational environment. As she makes the six-hour commute to visit Nate one weekend out of every month, she sometimes reflects on the most anxiety-ridden period of her life: when her son lived at home and needed constant supervision ƒ when the rest of the family lived in fear of Nates aggres-sion ƒ when she tried time after time to find suitable school placement for him in the areas public schools ƒ and when a school administrator dug her fingernails into Nates arm. All the while, IDEA, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, was in place. The school system covered the bare minimumŽ requirements of IDEA, Mrs. Phillips said. Yes, I had someone say bare minimum in an IEP,Ž she said about one individual education program meeting. But she is quick to say that there are some amazing ESE teachers in Lee County, some who were scolded for actually trying to help my son get what he needed,Ž she says. A bill,Ž Mrs. Phillips concludes, is only as good as the people implement-ing it.Ž Advocating to move forwardLeigh Anna Nowak holds a masters degree in social work and is a con-sultant with the Center for Autism and Related Disabil-ities-USF at Florida Gulf Coast Univer-sity. Currently under U.S. law, a system with public edu-cation ensures all students receive a free and appropri-ate public education,Ž Ms. Nowak said, meaning schools have to provide the resources available to support all learn-ers, including those with disabilities.Ž That said, she is concerned about H.R. 610. The voucher system proposed under this bill seems not to be set up for diverse learners, especially those with disabilities. Some may argue this bill, as written, could create a voucher sys-tem that may cause privately segregated schools. Many, many people have struggled for years to eliminate barriers that pre-vent the equity, diversity and inclusion of persons with disabilities. They have strived for society and the educational system to presume competence, value social roles, allow participation beside same-age peers, and be taught with the general curriculum using accommoda-tions and modifications. By eliminating (ESEA), with no replacing legislation, it could be argued that the progress of persons with disabilities toward gain-ing basic human rights may be set back as far as 1965, when the legislation was passed.Ž Ms. Nowak also is concerned that the reduction and accountability for the use of seclusion and restraint for students with special needs would lose the foot-ing it has gained in the last 10 years. Without ESEA, she says, future progress may be halted.Refusing to go backNaples resident Lois Carme is an educator and juris doctor who has been working with the exceptional needs population decades, since she was an undergraduate stu-dent at Regis College in the Boston area. When I read H.R. 610, it looks as though the major thing someone should be concerned about is the nutritional requirements. But that is the only thing it says about nutrition. It is completely deceitful.Ž Indeed, H.R. 610s wording indicates repealing a certain rule relating to nutrition,Ž and then proposes repealing ESEA. Its an absolute outrage for chil-dren with disabilities,Ž Dr. Carme says. What do we, as citizens, do about this? How can people get past this paragraph that will be detrimental to all children? And now what do we do? Have them sit in a corner and be quiet and not be kept to the standards of other children? Youll see a trickledown effect from the legal system. Ive seen it. When you dont have proper educa-tion and programs, when youre cutting corners, these students will probably be getting into situations they shouldnt be getting into. Take away the provisional education and youll have a higher drop-out level; children in trouble because they had nothing else to do. Thats been my experience because Ive seen it on the legal side. What they are proposing is beyond disgraceful, and Im hoping, illegal. These guys want to eliminate ESEA? No.ŽThe lifelong advocateSue Izeman is a board certified behavior analyst (Tallahassee certifi-cation board) and licensed behavior analyst practicing in New York and New Jersey. She earned her Ph.D. in devel-opmental psychol-ogy in 1991 and has worked with special needs students, par-ticularly those with autism, for more than 35 years. You have to be over 50 to really appreciate what the impact will be on children with disabili-ties if ESEA is repealed,Ž says Dr. Izeman. There was no federal mandate for free and appropriate education. Some children with disabilities got educated, but many did not. And many children stayed at home, with minimal access to any educa-tion at all. Without the framework from the Federal Department of Education, states and school districts could choose who they would educate, and could choose the quality of that education,Ž she says. Federal laws, ESEA and IDEA, changed that, providing guidelines for the appro-priate education of all children. If ESEA is repealed, and the states are given Block Grants to do with what they will, students with disabilities and their fami-lies will lose all the protections that the current law provides.Ž And if H.R. 610 becomes law, she says, students with disabilities will no longer have a right to a free education, nor a right to an appropriate one. This will be devastating to the children, and will set our educational system back 50 years.Ž Q “You have to be over 50 to really appreciate what the impact will be on children with disabilities if ESEA is repealed ...

BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 30-APRIL 5, 2017 | A18 WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM MONEY & INVESTING eric BRETANestaterick@gmail.com Despite dips, Nike and Under Armour stocks should climbA great number of retail stores that focus on clothing are fighting for their very survival. They face pricing pres-sure from the likes of Walmart and Amazon. At the same time, these retailers must compete with fast fashion brands that speedily bring the latest style to their shelves. And then companies like Mar-shalls and TJ Maxx offer name brands at a fraction of retail costs. But one sector within the retail industry is showing significant growth „ activewear. This is clothing that can be worn to the gym or for lounging around the house or to the grocery store. Activewear is becoming so popu-lar that Saturday Night LiveŽ did a humorous parody a few weeks ago about people wearing activewear everywhere. Two of the largest brands are Nike and Under Armour. Given the popularity of this sector, one would think that these stocks would be flying sky high. Instead, both are heading south. So why are these stocks falling and what may the future hold for them? While Nike is a much larger and more diversified company than Under Armour, with revenues of $30 billion compared to UAs $5 billion, both face similar opportunities and challenges. On the positive side, both see tremen-dous growth potential internationally in places like China. And footwear remains a growth opportunity for both compa-nies. But despite these positives, both Nike and Under Armours revenues have missed expectations also for similar reasons. First, major distributors like Sports Authority or JCPenney have scaled back stores or have gone out of business completely. While in the long run these distribution lines will be replaced, in the short run sales have been affected. Second, competition has increased in the U.S. activewear sector. Companies like Adidas, Lululemon and Victorias Secret are all fighting hard for market share in this space. Nike and UA need to constantly introduce fresh products to beat their competition. Third, many analysts believe that the Nike and Under Armour brands are being diminished because more and more of their products are being sold in outlet, clearance and off-brand retail stores. Because of this, shoppers are not seeing these brands as premium products and so will not pay full price for them. The good news for these stocks is that management of both companies is implementing strategies to combat these challenges. They are developing their own stores to bypass traditional retail department stores. Both also are investing heavily in online sales. And they are starting innovative new sales channels such as Nike+digital personal-ized shopping, which result in higher sales and margins. Most importantly, they are taking steps to more quickly bring new and exciting products to the consumer. Because of these plans, and the consumers seemingly insatiable desire for activewear and athletic gear, I believe that Nike and Under Armour will rebound from their depressed stock prices. Of the two, Nike is a more conservative play given its diversified revenue streams and established brand. It even pays a 1.3 percent dividend. UA is defi-nitely more speculative but has a much greater room for an upside bounce. But either should over-perform in a depressed retail sector.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 30-APRIL 5, 2017 BUSINESS A19 Name: Noel Martinez Title: Executive director of Leadership Palm Beach County Location: West Palm BeachBY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@” oridaweekly.comNoel Martinez says he is in the perfect place, doing the perfect job for him. Hes executive director of Leadership Palm Beach County, a nonprofit organization that brings together leaders from the pub-lic, private and nonprofit sectors to build and steward a vibrant, interconnected community. Im truly passionate about the importance of developing leaders in our com-munity,Ž Mr. Martinez said. Ive been involved in LPBC for a long time and am enjoying helping our organization expand its role as the go-to place for bringing leaders together so we can build a more vibrant, interconnected community.Ž But as a kid growing up in Hialeah, Mr. Martinez had a different plan. I wanted to be a professional baseball player,Ž he said. I wanted to be a first baseman for the New York Yankees.Ž He had played baseball since he was a Little Leaguer and went on to play in high school and at Broward Community College. But there came a point when he realized there were lots of guys who dreamed of being professional baseball players. And lots of them were more tal-ented than he was. Sports taught him a lot, he said. I learned how to be part of a team and how to work together to get results.Ž Those skills came in handy in the restaurant business, where he was employed for several years „ and was good at it. He opened several Bonefish Grills, includ-ing the one he managed in Palm Beach Gardens. But then Mr. Martinez shifted gears and began to work for nonprofit organizations, where he has extensive experience with event planning, membership growth, and other fundraising activities. He is a graduate of the LPBC Engage Class of 2014, has served on the LPBC board of governors and has worked as vice president of corporate partnerships and special events at Boys & Girls Club of Palm Beach County. Before that, he was director of membership development at Northern Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce, where he was responsible for the growth and retention of the orga-nization. Mr. Martinez also has significant experience in sales and development in the corporate sector, most recently at Hoover Architectural Products. Now living in Jupiter, he knows the community well. In addition to work-ing for leading nonprofit agencies, hes also served in volunteer leadership roles throughout Palm Beach County and Flor-ida, including at the Executive Director Advisory Council for the Riviera Beach CRA Director, Florida Association of Chamber Professionals, and ArtiGras Steering Committee. I absolutely love my job,Ž he said. Having the ability to connect leaders is awe-some to me. Its so much fun watching them make an impact.Ž LPBC has more than 1,700 graduates and Mr. Martinez is planning to get them back and involved with the organization. Ive got strong support and seriously high expectations. But it all fits my skill set.Ž Noel MartinezAge: 39 Where I grew up: Hialeah Where I live now: Jupiter Education: Broward Community College My job today: Executive director of Leadership Palm Beach County My first job and what it taught me: I worked at Discovery Zone while I was in high school. Discovery Zone was a chain of entertainment facilities for children very similar to Chuck E. Cheese. I held many positions, which included being a party host, a cook and at times I worked the cashier. I really enjoyed working with kids but there were times that the job wasnt so glamorous. I spent many nights scrubbing dirty pans, throwing out the garbage and cleaning up all kinds of gross stuff kids left behind. That job taught me to be humble. It taught me that no one person is better than another. Sometimes you just have to suck it up and get the job done. A career highlight: Being hired as the executive director for Leadership Palm Beach County. I absolutely fell in love with Leadership Palm Beach County when I went through the Engage program in 2014. The people you meet and the friendships you make are priceless. This organization is special and theres nothing like it. I am so honored to lead the charge to take it to the next level. What I do when Im not working: You can catch me outside enjoying the beautiful area we live in. I love spend-ing time at the beach and really enjoy watching a baseball game at Roger Dean Stadium. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: Be passionate about what you do. Make it count. About mentors: I have been very lucky to have many mentors who have impacted me over my career. A couple things I learned from them stand out. First, have confidence in yourself. Do not be scared to take on a challenge. Second, surround yourself with people who are smarter than you (Russell Simmons quote). Hire the best people you can and get out of their way.

They will get their wish in extremis this month. Tom Stoppards ArcadiaŽ is a 1993 drama suffused with comedy and populated by charismatic intellectuals theorizing about art, physics, romance, higher mathematics, architecture, sex, philosophy and a dozen other concepts with a density and speed that will dizzy almost anyone. Mr. Stoppard „ best known for The Real Thing,Ž Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are DeadŽ and Shakespeare In LoveŽ „ is famous for mixing human emotions into some of the most Byz-antine thematic explorations in 20th century theater. Fortunately, Dramaworks resident director, J. Barry Lewis, is a master at making complex material somewhat comprehensible to most audience mem-bers, such as quantum mechanics in Michael Frayns Copenhagen,Ž or the multiple actresses portraying the same woman at different ages in Edward Albees Three Tall Women.Ž In his hands, while themes of chaos versus order, certainty versus uncer-tainty and many others underlie the action, you dont have to be a wonk in any field. You can simply watch the witty characters whirling in recogniz-able patterns of relationships, or appre-ciate the overarching beauty of human EVER SINCE I WAS A YOUNG BOY, I played the silver ballƒ.Ž There probably isnt a more recognizable first line from a 1960s rock song than Peter Townshend introduc-ing us to that deaf, dumb and blind kid, Tommy.Ž On Wednesday, April 5, a band of merry pickers from Springfield, Mo., will converge on the Duncan Theatre for a once-in-a-lifetime concert expe-rience: A 75-minute bluegrass-infused performance, start to finish, of The Whos TommyŽ by the award-winning bluegrass band The HillBenders. The idea for a bluegrass version of the 1969 rock opera belonged to SXSW co-founder, musician, producer and devoted music lover, the late Louis Jay Meyers. He had been looking for a band with the right sound to take on the project for years, but could never find exactly what he wanted, until he met The HillBenders.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 30-APRIL 5, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY How a Meissen lamp lights up this collector’s heartThe place: The Lords Place Thrift Store, 7600 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; (561) 494-0125. Cost: $6 The skinny: Experts say you destroy the value of something when you drill it out to make a lamp. But I think the value of this lamp still far exceeds its $6 price tag „ Id probably price it at around $100 and hope for the best. My mother and I always lamented that my great-grandmother had a fabulous Moorcroft vase drilled for a lamp in the 1940s. But, as my mother points out, perhaps use as a lamp preserved the vase. Thats what I like to think when I look at this 7-inch piece of Meissen, which was made into a lamp in the mid-20th century. It has a painted wooden base and will be a star in my collection „ at least until my next great find. Q THE FIND: We often want what we cant have. And we often hope that what we have is better than what it actually is. Its human nature. Thats how collectors are and, I suspect, how anyone who thinks he or she owns a treasure actually feels. I remember when internet sales first took hold in the 90s. Youd look up pieces by some great glass company, like Baccarat or Steuben, and see listings for far lesser objects that read Baccarat?Ž or Steuben?Ž People always hope for the best „ one never hopes a treasure was from the dime store, though thats where many of the objects we cherish were bought a century ago. Thats why its important to trust your eye. Quality wins out every time. Im thinking about that now as I smile about my most recent acquisition, a dresser lamp made from a Meissen porcelain bottle. On its own, the piece was innocuous enough. It was sitting amid piles of other things, and the silk shade was dingy and spotted. Clearly, it had been in storage somewhere. Yet the porcelain had a light-grabbing quality. I recognized the Blue Onion pattern as one that was popular everywhere from Asia to England to Holland to Denmark to Germany. And I knew it had to be quality. Like any collector, I hoped for the best „ I wanted it to be a piece by Meissen, the famous German porcelain manufacturer, or Royal Copenhagen, the storied Danish porcelain factory. In fact, I sent a picture to my friend, antiques dealer Jim Antone. Almost looks like Royal Copenhagen,Ž I wrote. Probably is,Ž he replied before adding moments later, Hmmmm.Ž That made me look again.It was then that I saw the crossed swords of the Meissen mark in a stem near the bottom of the bottle. Meissen made the dinnerware from which German royalty dined. The company first made Blue Onion in 1739 and it still makes the pattern, which was no doubt inspired by the Chinese porcelains making their way to Europe. The companys rococo figurines are the stuff of fantasy, with delicately applied flowers and gold trim. For years, there was a store on Palm Beachs Worth Avenue that specialized in the porcelain, simply called The Meissen Shop „ I always had joked that I would open a competing store called Of Meissen Men. Lamp made from Meissen bottleSCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYNotice the crossed swords near the bottom of a stem in the design of this bottle? That is the Meissen mark. scott SIMMONS ssimmons@floridaweekly.com COLLECTORS CORNERThat probably will not come to pass.But it does underscore one thing: Sometimes, a good eye and a little knowledge can carry you far. It also underscores another notion: Theres nothing like the thrill of the hunt and the delight in finally acquiring the unattainable. Q

ANTIQUESBottle-cap art from the 1950s, 1990s still brings a sparkle to collectors BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVEL Some modern artists like to make something out of nothing by using dis-carded metal, signs, cans, tools, machine parts and other trash to form useful and artistic pieces of art. One of the most popular discards are metal crown bot-tle caps from soda bottles. The crown cap, the type used on soda bottles, was invented in 1892. Soon ads and logos were printed on the caps, and they were considered trash after the bottle contents were emptied. But they were colorful and round, so eventually large pieces were created, like bottle-cap chains strung with hundreds of caps and smoking stands made from the chains. Caps were painted and used as game pieces like checkers, and a trivet shaped like a bunch of grapes was made from caps covered with cro-cheted yarn. There also were planters, purses, bottle-cap b uttonsŽ made with magnets and jewelry, especially cross-shaped pendants. Many can be found pictured online, but the most popular are the man and woman figures made as a Boy Scout project in the 1950s. The fig-ure had arms and legs made with strings and caps, a wooden body and head, and it held a small colored aluminum bowl. A modern artist named Rick Ladd made the most spectacular and artistic pieces „ a chair and footstool „ in 1991. Loops of bottle-cap chains, flat wooden frame sections decorated with caps that show the original brand art, and glass formed a 20-inch-high chair and footstool. They sold at a recent Skinner auction in Boston for $492. A matching chest of drawers brought $884, and a picture frame sold for $677. Q: I have a wardrobe trunk made by Indestructo Trunk Co. that belonged to my great-grandmother. She was married in 1895 and died in the 1930s. The trunk has her monogram on it. When the trunk is standing on end, the left end opens up a rod that holds hangers. It has drawers and a hatbox. Its been years since it was opened and I dont have a key. It will have to go to a locksmith. Any informa-tion would be greatly appreciated. A: The Indestructo Trunk Co. was owned by National Veneer Products, a company founded in Mishawaka, Ind., in 1901. Indestructo Trunk Co. was sold to Dodge Co. in 1909 and was sold again in 1924. It closed in 1934. The company made large steamer trunks, wardrobe trunks and other luggage. You have a wardrobe trunk, popular when people took long trips by boat or train. Ward-robe trunks are big, heavy and not con-venient storage, so they are not popular with collectors and are very hard to sell. Q: I just got what looks like a copper luster teapot marked Wade England.Ž The lid has a genie with his arms folded. The bottom of the teapot is marked The Genie Teapot.Ž What is it worth? A: Wade pottery is made by The Wade Group of Potteries, which started near Burslem, England, in 1810. Sev-eral potteries merged to become George Wade & Son Ltd., early in the 20th century, and other potteries have been added through the years. The Genie tea-pot was made in the 1970s and sells for less than $30. Q: My sisters and I inherited a 40-binder collection of nonsports cards that range from 19th century tobacco cards through cards printed in the 1970s. None of the cards has been graded. How do we go about establishing the value of the collection? A: Tobacco cards were first included in cigarette packs in the 1870s to keep the package from getting crushed when they were shipped. Cards featured pic-tures of athletes, entertainers, famous people and historical figures and scenes. You can contact www.psacard.com (Pro-fessional Sports Authenticator), a grad-ing and authentication company, or an auction house that sells advertising and sports memorabilia. You also can take the cards to a local dealer to get an idea of value. Grading cards requires expert knowledge. You will be charged for the experts time and experience. Q: I have a funny cookie jar that is marked Oscar U.S.A.Ž It is a little boys head. He has a big smiling red lip and a red hat that is the lid. A: Your cookie jar was made by Robinson Ransbottom Co. of Roseville, Ohio. Cookie jars were made there about 1920 but Oscar isnt in the catalog until 1943. He was made with a blue or a red hat. Tip: Be very careful when handling old bottles or medical equipment. The remains of old drugs, even toxic mate-rials, may still cling to the surface. A broken bit of glass or a sliver could let these toxic materials reach your blood-stream. Q „ Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column. We cannot guarantee the return of photographs, but if a stamped envelope is included, we will try.

Goodbye, bars and beer joints. Now were playing theaters and concert halls,Ž Mr. Rea said. The band has been together since about 2008. Mr. Rea (guitar) and his cousin Gary Rea (bass) and the dobro player, Chad Gravy BoatŽ Graves, all had roots in southern Missouri. They met Nolan Lawrence (mandolin) at a bluegrass festival and he knew Mark Cassidy (banjo). Mr. Lawrence and Mr. Cassidy moved to Missouri and the band was born. They hopped onto the bluegrass festival circuit, where Mr. Meyers heard them. Call it chemistry. Call it energy. Call it the it factor. Mr. Meyers knew the band had it. Maybe it was their strong rock n roll influence. Maybe it was the way Jim Rea wiggled around on stage, or the way Chad Graves dobro held the band together. Maybe it was Nolan Law-rences beard and fedora, or the way he delivered a vocal. Taking on a project like TommyŽ took a tremendous amount of work. None of the bandmembers, who are in their 30s and 40s, is old enough to know the album, first hand. The story is confusing at best and its a dark tale of murder, bullying, sexual abuse and mental illness. But it sold 20 million copies, and, in 2003, Rolling Stone magazine ranked TommyŽ No. 96 on its list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. The album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1998 for its historical, artistic and significant value.Ž Jim Reas arrangement of the album is just as alive when played by the nimble fingers of five outstanding bluegrass pickers as it was with one of the premier rock bands of its era and full orchestra on the original recording. The well-balanced band has bridged the gap between classic rock and blue-grass, with each performer taking lead on vocals, showcasing his skills and sup-porting the others. Because the story is hard to follow, the band members narrate short mono-logues between songs to help it along. We try to get the story in,Ž Mr. Rea said. We keep it short and we keep to the original story.Ž There are sure to be TommyŽ fanatics who will relish a chance to revis-it the TommyŽ phenomenon, with a twang and a twist. Tommy and bluegrass do seem to be a perfect fit,Ž Mr. Rea said. If youre a fan of The Who or a fan of Tommy,Ž youre going to get it.

Mr. Stoppards verbiage is like music, Mr. Lewis said. Instead of trying to discern every note at any given time, we have to let the collective sound wash over you.Ž In fact, the play is suffused with a human element, said Vanessa Morosco (recently in the Maltz Jupiter Theatres DisgracedŽ) who plays the 20th cen-tury literature scholar Hannah Jarvis. The themes in the plays are incredibly universal and they are often explored through these very intelligent accom-plished academics. As audience members you dont have to know what they are talking about; you just have to see how they affect each other on stage,Ž she said. Watching Hannah and a rival researcher argue about hermits and Romanticism of the 19th century is like watching two eccentrics arguing at your dinner party. Thats the delight: You get to see the fireworks they have.Ž (It doesnt hurt that the rival researcher is played by her real-life husband, Peter Simon Hilton. Set in the same English country house, a set of academic researchers in 1993 is hilariously misinterpreting clues to the actual events that we alternately see occurring to the homes original occu-pants in 1809 to 1812. The play mashes time and space. On a table common to both eras, quill pens reside alongside laptops computers. Underneath is an ancient turtle seemingly spanning both eras. It simply has to be seen to be fully appreciated. The script is daunting, to put it mildly. Ryan Zachary Ward, who plays Sep-timus Hodge, the sexy 1809 tutor to the lord of the manors preternaturally bril-liant daughter, said, The hardest thing is that the intelligence of the character so far exceeds my own. This play is really made of discoveries. I feel like one of the pillars of drama is the nature of discovery. Some-times its hard to tell the discovery that belongs to the actors and discoveries that belong to the character. Its a con-stant learning curve.Ž Mr. Stoppard does try to help the audience by having the experts in the play try to explain some of the concepts to the other less esoteric-minded char-acters in each era. Still, ArcadiaŽ demands an audience invest an effort; this isnt a passive expe-rience like watching television in your living room. Mr. Ward advised, I think people should know that they are going to use their ears in a different way than they do in most plays. I think generally the laser focus you use with your eyes with most shows, you need to invest that intensity with your ears.Ž Still, Mr. Lewis has been delving into the endless intricacies since Drama-works decided on the title a year ago. From the very first day that we decided we were going to do it, you (investigate the issues) not just contex-tually, but how to show them visually. Stoppard is one of these great intellec-tual challenges and it really puts me to the test,Ž he said, noting that the process of analyzing every beat of the script requires wide-ranging research. You begin to let it percolate, and then let it germinate, then think about it and read about it, and then you put it aside, then talk about it with other colleagues.Ž The meaning and the intention of each char-acter in each moment of the play reveal themselves sl owly and over a period of time, you try to find the core and the heart.Ž The pre-rehearsal work sometimes succeeds, sometimes fails. Sometimes, Mr. Lewis and the cast discover in rehearsal a completely differently meaning than they thought was there going in. At a minimum, Mr. Lewis detailed work with his cast results in perfor-mances that assure the audience that they can relax about the veracity of what they are hearing even if they dont follow it because at least the actors make you think they do understand it. In the end, for all the intricate talk about entropy, elaborate gardening and Lord Byron, Mr. Lewis says ArcadiaŽ is about relationships being more impor-tant than the detailsŽ of thermodynam-ics. Theres no way unless youre a brilliant scientist, theres no way to bring clarity to these issues. But we can (understand) the personal relationship.Ž Even more so, I think Stoppard is very much about curiosity and when we lose our curiosity, we lose the sense of moment about the world. The formulas are there, but whats the why behind why are we dealing with this world.Ž Q „ Bill Hirschman is editor of Florida Theater On Stage. Read him online at www.floridatheateronstage.com.

Beginning April 3 through May 14, the library will waive all late fees, no matter how long overdue, as well as charges for lost materials including books, CDs, DVDs and other items. The goal: To recover thousands of outstanding items and welcome back thousands of patrons whose access to library materials has been impeded by over-due fines or charges associ-ated with lost materials. The Fine Forgiveness Program would require cardholders to come into the library with current identification to verify address and return any overdue materials. Fines for those overdue materials would be waived, and charges associ-ated with lost items also would be waived during the six-week amnesty period only. The amnesty program would apply only to items checked out before the April 3 amnesty period begins. Fines and lost book charges for Interlibrary Loan items (borrowed from other libraries) will not be waived. Each cardholder must be present to be eligible for forgiveness and families are encouraged to visit together. The goal of the program is to recover as many of the unreturned items and to reinstate as many of the 17,627 blocked cardholders as possible. Of the 13,302 juvenile cardholders, nearly 42 percent are blocked from accessing childrens pro-gramming. Over the past 10 years, the Mandel Public Library has lent 7,775,477 items including books, DVDs, CDs and digital resources. Patrons interested in participating in the program should stop by the library reception desk with a current ID or contact the Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach at 868-7700 for more information.

GREEN & ARTISAN MARKET LIVE MUSIC ON THE WATERFRONT 2pm WEEKEND HAPPENINGS AT HARBOURSIDE LATEST FILMS‘T2: Trainspotting’ +++ Is it worth $10? YesTrainspottingŽ (1996) was a jolt of a movie, an unpleasant inside look at hero-in addiction and the hardships it entails. Anyone expecting more of the same in T2: Trainspotting,Ž however, should be warned: This is a different kind of movie. Because it had to be. Its slower, more measured and thoughtful. In some ways its about how addicts struggle to move on. But its also about friendship, loyalty, betrayal, the women who get in the way and the old friend whos out to kill you. The original ended with its hero, Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor), betraying his mates and leaving Scotland with 16,000 pounds of heroin they were supposed to split. T2Ž picks up 20 years later, when Mark returns to Edinburgh after his mother dies. Spud (Ewen Bremner) is a failed husband and father still strug-gling with his heroin addiction. Cocaine addict Simon, aka Sick BoyŽ (Jonny Lee Miller), runs a failing bar and blackmails businessmen who cheat on their wives. And to Marks delight, psychopath Frank Begbie (Robert Ca rlyle) is in prison „ at least for now. Mark eventually reunites with his old buds, some more pleasantly than others. The adrenaline rush of the original film „ fueled by a junkies need for a fix and the lengths hell go to get it „ is supplanted in T2Ž by adults who know heroin is bad, but arent sure what to do with themselves to avoid it. So its with the omnipresent temptation of falling back on the junk that Mark helps Spud stay straight, and later teams with Sick Boy and his girlfriend (Anjela Nedy-alkova) for small-time crime. Then Begbie breaks out of prison and will stop at nothing to kill Mark. The script by John Hodge (again based on the work of Irvine Welsh) is a bit aim-less, but then so are the characters, so the real negative effect of this is that it impedes escalating dramatic tension. Director Danny Boyle utilizes the fastpaced, high-energy style of the original sparsely, and to limited effect, here. Marks choose lifeŽ rant in a restaurant feels out of context. Freeze frames dur-ing a fight with Sick Boy dont work. And crazed visualizations dont have the desired impact. Worse, the thick Scottish brogue remains hard to understand. I dont care that theyre speaking English „this movie needs subtitles. The most intriguing element of T2Ž is Marks character arc. It is human nature that we can change our scenery but not necessarily who we are; our demons sometimes follow us no matter how hard we try to leave them behind. Accepting your issues is supposed to be the key to happiness, but as we learn from watching Mark, thats merely the beginning of the process. As a whole, T2: TrainspottingŽ is compelling viewing. The pop soundtrack is catchy, the performances are inspired and the film resonates with an unsettling tone that renders the final product far from dull. Its not quite the sequel you expect, but it is a fitting next chapter for these characters. Q dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Ewen Bremner played Mark in the 1995 stage version of “Trainspotting,” but the producers wanted Ewan McGregor as the lead in the movie, which led to Mr. Bremner taking over as Spud. FILM CAPSULESBeauty and the Beast ++ (Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Ian McKellen) In Disneys live-action remake of its animated classic, Belle (Ms. Watson) is trapped in the Beasts (Mr. Stevens) enchanted castle, but is helped by a clock (Mr. McKellen) and candelabra (Ewan McGregor), among other living furniture. It remains a sweet love story at its core, and the visuals are breathtaking. Still, the filmmakers took an animated 84-minute work of perfec-tion and bloated it to a live-action 129 minutes that feels unnecessary. Rated PG.The Sense of an Ending ++ (Jim Broadbent, Emily Mortimer, Charlotte Rampling) An elderly Brit-ish man (Mr. Broadbent) has trouble retrieving a diary that is in the posses-sion of the woman (Ms. Rampling) who was his girlfriend 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 encounter 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 figure 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. Q

He recently gained more notoriety by performing in an Android commer-cial that aired during this years Gram-my Awards, in which he delivered a mesmerizing performance of the third movement of Beethovens Moonlight SonataŽ on back-to-back pianos. (See it at https://vimeo.com/155518905.) Mr. Kims love of music was born when he first began playing piano at the age of 5. Five years later, he became the youngest person to win the New York Philharmonics Young Artists Competi-tion. He has been performing profes-sionally for more than 15 years and is a graduate of the Juilliard School. He has released two CDs: Bach ExhibitionŽ and Lisztomania.Ž An international orchestral soloist Mr. Kim has performed with the BBC Symphony under Jir Belohlvek; the Toronto Symphony Orchestra; and the Nashville Symphony, among others.

THEATER REVIEW Vicki Lewis makes this ‘Gypsy’ her own BY BILL HIRSCHMANFloridatheateronstage.comMerman. LuPone. Daly. Lansbury. Taking not a scintilla away from those icon-ic performances, you have never seen a Mama Rose like the one Vicki Lewis incar-nates in Maltz Jupiter Theatres unique but masterful take on Gypsy.Ž Her ultimate stage mother is not the unrelenting pile driver or monster sacr that so many great performers have cho-sen to depict. While Lewis and director Marcia Milgrom Dodge chose to make Rose brassy, vibrant, funny, overwhelming and undaunted, she also is perhaps the most human Rose youve seen. They only unleash her inner driving demons a hand-ful of times. But when they do. That Rose. The word is ferocious. And that ferocity fuels an indomitability that is awe-inspir-ing to behold. As they proved when they took on Hello, Dolly!Ž five years ago at the Maltz, Dodge and Lewis make a piece as fresh as if the script and score just arrived in the mail, yet do not reinvent it. They simply look for the truth inside the well-worn warhorse and then rip it out of the actors spleens. The result is work that echoes no other production you may have seen or recording you may have heard, yet it easily reaches a level far beyond words like satis-fying or entertaining. Gypsy,Ž if you need be told, tracks the theatrical campaign of Rose Horvick and her daughters, very loosely based on the memoir of Gypsy Rose Lee, who never balked at admitting that it, as well as most stories she told, was fiction. The 1959 classic is considered one of the finest pieces of musical theater of all time, built on a per-fect book by Arthur Laurents, a peerless score by Jule Styne with arguably the best overture in the genre, and brilliant lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, who was blocked from writing the score because Merman didnt trust some newcomer. The fable is not any kind of love letter to the denizens of the theater world, least of all venerating the threadbare subset of vaudeville dying along with the Great Depression. Instead, GypsyŽ is a drolly humorous but clear-eyed examination of how ambition and dreams can be both laudable and destructive as Mama Rose pursues show-biz stardom for her daughters, but really to answer her own frustrated stunted aspira-tions. Lewis/Rose nearly growls the words, I was born too soon and I started too late.Ž The acid tests are Roses numbers ending each act, and Lewis and Dodge do not disappoint, including a stunning sui generis Roses TurnŽ absent a shred of any predecessors performance. But just as telling is the first act closer. Rose learns that her daughter, June, whom she has nurtured for stardom to the exclu-sion of her other daughter, Louise, has eloped with a chorus boy. She has aban-doned Rose and her hard-fought dreams, much as Roses mother and three hus-bands did. Lewis stands stock still with a cruelly twisted mouth and eyes seeing the betray-als of the past. She is stricken, seemingly to the point of paralysis. And then she turns and points her finger at Louise. With terrifying intensity, she proclaims, nay, commands, I am going to make you a star.Ž She launches into the classic exhi-bition of a human being turning into a freight train with Everythings Coming Up Roses,Ž including the introductory lyr-ics, They think that were through, butƒ.ba-byƒŽ Recollecting her below-the-base-ment delivery of ba-byŽ hours later still brings on chills. The ensuing force of the jet stream in her wake not only sucks along boyfriend Herbie and Louise, but the audi-ence as well. Rose does terrible things as she ignores the people in her life in her blitzkrieg. Yet Lewis makes it clear that Rose genuinely loves the people around her and that she does think that her relentless drive is for their benefit „ even though it clearly is self-fulfillment. Lewis is physically perfect in that, even as Dolly entering the Harmonia Gardens, she seems cut out of plebian cloth never destined for greatness. But she emanates an inherent likability and winning charm. Plus Lewis has a voice made for musical theater „ not just the lung power for the big numbers, but an actors chops to put across the subtler emotions of softer num-bers like Small WorldŽ and Youll Never Get Away From Me.Ž Catch how she has B16 WEEK OF MARCH 30-APRIL 5, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY #JMMZ+PFM &BHMFT &MUPO+PIO .BEPOOB UIFQBMNDPN %PXOMPBEUIF UIFQBMNBQQ561-627-9966 www.preferrednaples.com 239-261-1177 U 800-523-3716 Cruise Into The Next 10 Years With Florida Weekly!

But the other star of this production is Dodge, whose vision and imagination cannot be overstated. Her work from the staging to coalescing visual elements to her own character-driven choreography is among the best you will see in local musi-cal theater. There are scores and scores of subtle touches worked out with the actors: Rose adjusts the brim of Herbies hat as if try-ing to change him or take ownership of him; Rose slaps the empty rocking chair of her dismissive father as she lectures him in absentia in Some People;Ž Dainty June, now grown up but still dressed like an overgrown Shirley Temple, rips off her obviously fake blond wig to reveal a brunette coif in If Momma Was Mar-ried.Ž When Rose blasts out her vision in Everythings Coming Up Roses,Ž she almost attacks Louise in a hug, making the girl double over as if in pain. And at the risk of a spoiler, Dodge has Lewis do what weve never seen Rose do before: After Roses Turn,Ž Rose runs to Gypsys comforting arms, as the script sug-gests. But this Rose shatters and crumples into heaving sobs as she collapses com-pletely for the first time. That makes her ensuing resurrection all the more moving. There is even an additional grace note in the final two seconds of the show. Dodges choreography with associate Michael Baxter provides lame kitschy moves for the third-rate vaudeville acts, faux Gene Kelly-Fred Astaire moves for Tulsas tryout solo, and downright hilari-ous routines for the three strippers in You Gotta Get A Gimmick.Ž The Maltz invested everything it had, including spending extra cash to expand the superb orchestra under Helen Gregory and, for the first time, installing a turn-table, which adds a cinematic flow to the many scene changes as well as underscor-ing the theatricality of the vibe. Much of the creative team are Dodge associates or Maltz regulars who have been working for months to produce a threadbare world a few millimeters under the glitz and glitter: Michael Schweikardts suggestive sets, including a proscenium made of battered old theatrical trunks, Paul Millers scene-defining lighting, Marty Mets crystalline sound and the amusing costumes from Leon Weibers, who designed some himself and borrowed others from three other companies. Musical director Gregory skillfully molds the singers and the orchestra in doing justice to Stynes score with its colors ranging from brassy razzamatazz (the most energizing opening notes of any musical ever) to poignant ballads. The arrangements embrace the second-rate pit sound for some instruments on occasion such as a tinkly honky-tonk piano. The supporting cast is just as fine. You dont realize just how good an actress Emma Stratton is as Louise, even when she sings the plaintive Little Lamb,Ž until you watch her grow from the wounded crea-ture uncomfortable in her own skin into the confident, accomplished Gypsy. John Scherer, another Dodge colleague, creates a warm appealing Herbie who credibly sells that his love for Rose enables his con-stant excuses for her misbehavior. They and Lewis are as convincing interacting in the extended book scenes as they are in the musical numbers. The cast has 27 people, including eight youngsters, most playing multiple parts. This critic has made no secret in recent months that he could have easily cast first-rate Mama Roses with a half-dozen super-lative local actresses such as Elizabeth Dimon, Margot Moreland, Laura Turnbull and Lourelene Snedeker, among others. But Dodge and Lewis have an invalu-able, irreplaceable and unique connec-tion from having worked together many times before. The result of their collabo-ration is a performance that should not be missed. Q „ GypsyŽ runs through April 9 at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, 1001 E. Indiantown Road in Jupiter. Tickets: $56-$120.

B22 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 30-APRIL 5, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY VINOHow to taste wine like a proA lot of people enjoy wine, but not all of them appreciate it. Theres a difference. Enjoying wine means liking it. Appreciat-ing wine means knowing why you like it. Drinking wine is a lot like listening to a symphony orchestra. First, you get the total impact of the music „ all of the instruments play together, and they all hit you at once. But as you learn to appreciate music, you start to pick out the sounds of the individual instruments and understand how they work together to produce the total effect. Same with wine. First, you get the overall sensations of aroma and taste, but as you learn the process, you start to distin-guish „ and understand „ the individual flavor components. When I gather my tast-ing panel friends to help me review wines for this column, we use a specific evalua-tion method I call the 5-S Approach.Ž Its a professional process, and the gateway to greater enjoyment and more fun with the wines you share with friends. So try this the next time you pull a cork or twist a cap. 1. SEE „ Look at the wine by holding the glass a bit sideways over a light surface. The color can tell the age and condition of the wine. Reds lose color as they age, turning a dull brown or brick. Whites gain color, going from yellow to gold to brown. Opacity is important. The darker it is, the more full-bodied it will be on the palate. 2. SWIRL „ Keep the glass on the table and swirl the wine. This aerates the liquid, releasing aromatic and flavor components. 3. SNIFF „ This is a critical step, because 85 percent of our sense of taste is actually smell. Put your nose way down inside the glass, close your eyes, and take a few short sniffs, like a puppy. Whats the first thing that comes to your mind? In white wines, do you smell white or yellow fruit? In reds, are there aromas of red or black cherries, plums, or berries? Or do you get hit up front with earth scents like tobacco, smoke, cedar, leather or similar sensations? 4. SIP „ When you sip, suck some air into the wine through your front teeth, then chewŽ the liquid around in your mouth a bit. This exposes all the sensors on your tongue to the full range of flavors. Again, think of the very first taste that comes to your mind. Then think of the second and the third. 5. SWALLOW „ When you swallow, be aware of how long the flavors linger on your palate and in the back of your mouth. This is the finish,Ž and the longer you sense the flavors, the better the wine is likely to be. Of course, when were sip-ping through 15 to 20 wines at a sitting, we dont swallow them all. Thats where the spit bucket comes in. If you ever go to a real professional tasting session, youll see people expectorating all over the place. You should, too, or youll never make it home. So instead of gulping down your next glass of Chianti or Riesling, try this profes-sional process. As you really pay attention to whats happening on your palate, and as you start to sense individual flavor components, youll enjoy your wines more, and your food will start tasting better, too. Fresh from the tasting panel, here are this weeks favorites:Meomi Chardonnay California 2015 ($13) „ Grapes are blended from three very diverse regions in this wine. Its bold and creamy with a buttery mouthfeel and an entertaining hint of butter ed popcorn. Straightforward flavors of pear and white peach. WW 88.Tom Gore Chardonnay California 2015 ($10) „ Light bodied and refreshing aromas and flavors of lemon, grape-fruit, oak, vanilla and red apple. WW 86. Salentin Chardonnay Uco Valley 2013 ($16) „ Aromas of green leaves, oak, and (unusu-ally) lavender. A full-bodied, well-balanced wine with ele-gant green apple flavors pre-dominant. WW 88-89. Viansa Chardonnay Carneros Signature Series 2013 ($45) „ Yellow-gold in the glass with butter, oak, and smoke aromas. A rich but-tery mouthfeel and flavors of white fruit, mixed herbs, cinna-mon, and cloves. Even though its listed at 14.2 percent alcohol, its well balanced and satisfying. WW 90-91.Ask the Wine WhispererQ: Ive seen a lot of hype lately about a sparkling wine called Prosecco. What is it?„ Frank N., Deerfield BeachA: Prosecco is an Italian sparkling wine made from the Glera grape. It mainly comes from the Valdobbiadene area north-west of Venice, where cool weather turns out white grapes with high acidity. Its a great budget-minded alternative to cham-pagne, and usually offers refreshing flavors of apple, peach, lemon, almond and pine-apple. Q „ Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

Boynton Beach, its hometown, was little more than a few traffic lights along U.S. High-way 1. A four-piece chicken dinner here sold for 99 cents. Buds is now the oldest family-owned restaurant in that city. It all started up North. Bud Brinkman a native of Minnesota and a restaurant worker, moved to Pompano Beach in the 1950s. In 1957, he struck out on his own, moving his family with eight children to Boynton Beach. He started Buds Chick-en & Seafood as a small take-out with a walk-up window; drive-thrus werent yet around. In the beginning, the store had an extensive menu, according to the family historian, Michael Brinkman Hes one of the four brothers „ Tim Mark and Tom Brinkman „ who now own Buds. The menu was narrowed after custom-ers leaned to the crispy fried chicken and seafood, and they soon became the focus. It wouldnt be until 1976 before another Buds was opened, and today, there are seven stores, with casual seating indoors and drive-thrus „ all in Palm Beach County. The foods, said Mark Brinkman, another of the original owners sons, are all house-made. That includes condi-ments such as tartar sauce and cocktail sauce. The fish sandwich and the chicken tenders are the most popular. We make it all in house. Theres nothing on the menu that Im not proud of.Ž Many of the recipes are family traditions, he said. My dads mom and dad had a pub, a restaurant in Minnesota. Thats where the potato salad recipe started.Ž The fried chicken, Southern-style with a skin-on, crisp crust, also came from them, he said. In an interview with Boynton Beach historian Janet DeVries Mark Brinkman said that generations have eaten at Buds, and those whove moved away ask if they would put a Buds in their new state. But franchising is out of the question, he said. You lose control of the product, and we made up our minds long ago we werent going to do it.Ž Third-generation workers also are part of the operation, he said; his neph-ew works with them today, handling social media and the web information. But cooks and servers in the restaurant also have history with the company. Their grandparents have worked here, and now they come in for a job.Ž Round, fluffy corn fritters, included in each order, sweet tea and the iconic orange and white chicken boxes are other trademarks; mountains of chicken and shrimp dinners have been handed out the window at the drive-thrus over the years. Other recipes requested by customers are always tested and sometimes tried out, but the mainstays remain. They also serve the community whenever possible. After the 2005 spate of hurricanes, Buds was the only restau-rant in Boynton open. Lines were out the door and we served constantly until curfew „ 7 p.m. or so,Ž Mark said. Celebs visit, too, Mark said, actors filming Body HeatŽ in the early 80s, ballplayers, and others. But theyre treated just as any other customer, and wait in line for the hot chicken and fish sandwiches „ all at bargain prices com-pared to many chains. Mark said its all part of being a local success. Its where we grew up. We see our neighbors and kids we went to school with here and their kids. Were a part of the community.ŽIn briefBrunch is undoubtedly one of the most popular spring meals „ its the new social dinnerŽ as a food friend claims. (Plan now, in fact, for Easter brunch „ its always a sellout.) Prices are getting good with all the competi-tion as most restaurants jump in. Darbster in West Palm Beach is an option for vegetarians and vegans „ and with $3 mimosas, a steal. Theyre fur friendly: Bring the dogs in between 4-7 p.m. on Sunday, and get 20 percent off your bill. ƒ In PGA Commons Spotos Oyster Bar offers an all-you-can-nosh Sunday brunch buffet for $14.95 per person; with unlimited bloody Marys and mimosas for $15 additional. ƒ Want seafood?

Its a catchphrase, like locally sourced,Ž no antibioticsŽ and sustainably harvested.Ž But in this case, there is a certain amount of art to the craft. This drink, called Rubus, is a permutation of a margarita that combines Espoln Reposado tequila, a spicy agave, raspberry and lime. With a drink like this, the temptation is for it to be too sweet. Thats how it would have tasted had Craft Bar used a premade mix. It was all a question of checks and balances. The tequila offered a smooth under-tone to the sweet spice of the agave. The raspberry also lent a sweet tone that was tempered by the lime. The food seemingly matches the drinks „ a charcuterie board, with pt, salami and such, was a comparative bargain at $16. Be careful not to overindulge, though, especially if youre headed to a performance next door at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre. These are drinks for savoring, not swilling. Q „ Sc ott Simmons T o Olimpia Zuccarelli, who grew up in the restaurant business, family is every-thing. And her family has grown expo-nentially over the years because her customers have become family, too. One of them, upon learning that Zuccarellis Italian Kitchen was closed for a holiday, invited himself over to her familys din-ner. I said youre not even Italian, but he said he had eaten so much Italian food at our restaurant he felt like one,Ž she said. That man continued coming for the rest of his life. Ms. Zuccarelli isnt encouraging customers to come home with her, but she does treat them like family at Zucca-rellis Italian Kitchen, open in West Palm Beach for 35 years. Zuccarellis has played a part in many customers special occasions. One of our customers,Ž she said, put a ring in a slice of cheesecake as part of his engagement proposal.Ž Anecdotes like those can be found in the restaurateurs book, aptly called A Chair at My Table.Ž The book, available online, at bookstores and at her restau-rant, was written as a reflection and invitation to experience what its like to grow up Zuccarelli. The book also provides Old World recipes (52 of them). She will sign copies of the book April 6 at Fork & Cork at Legacy Place. Ms. Zuccarelli, who says she is a cook, not a chef, because she didnt go to a fancy culinary school, has been work-ing in the kitchen since she was 9. She learned from her grandmother, also Olimpia, and her mother, Frances, who, at 73, is still overseeing the cooking line at Zuccarellis. Her father, Ralph, and his brothers moved to New York from southern Italy in 1954. Ralph Zuccarelli, 76, still works in the kitchen, too, making meatballs, dough and Italian sausage following an old fam-ily recipe. As manager and a cook herself, Ms. Zuccarelli can fill in for any position at the restaurant „ and does if an employ-ee calls in sick. I wear many hats,Ž she said. You have to.Ž One of her yearly tasks „ one she particularly enjoys „ is traveling to Italy to select wines for the restaurant. Shell be going April 7 and laughs as she says, Well, somebodys got to do it.Ž She hires musicians who provide entertainment at the restaurant Wednes-day through Sunday. Its a good variety,Ž she said of the types of music. Sinatra, Motown, etc.Ž Running a restaurant is hard work, she said. But she wouldnt have it any other way. A single mom, she is proud of hav-ing raised her 26-year-old son, Michael, who she put through the police academy and now works in law enforcement. When she has time (and thats not often) she enjoys entertaining at her West Palm Beach home. Olimpia ZuccarelliAge: 51 Original hometown: Bronxville, N.Y.

Were very hands on, not to mention sticklers for cleanliness. Cuisine: Southern Italian Training: I didnt go to culinary school but learned from my mother and my grandmother. I learned from the best. Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? Crocs and Shoes for Crews What advice would you give someone who wants to be a restaurateur? You have to learn the fundamentals and start from the bottom up. You have to, as the owner, be able to work every section of the business. And be consistent. Q In the kitchen with...OLIMPIA ZUCCARELLI, Zuccarelli’s Italian Kitchen, West Palm Beach BY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@floridaweekly.comTHE DRINK: Highlights from local menus SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY COURTESY PHOTOOlimpia Zuccarelli will sign copies of “A Chair at My Table,” April 6 at Fork & Cork. Places for specialty cocktailsA trio worth noting3SCOTT’STHREE FOR2 THE COOPERPGA Commons, 4610 PGA Blvd., Suite 100, Palm Beach Gardens; 622-0032 or www.thecooperrestaurant.com. Chef Adam Brown brings together a menu of local and seasonal ingredients for his food „ weve chowed down on his Mediterranean Mezze Board, which includes kale hummus, roasted eggplant spread, falafel, crispy eggplant cakes, pickled cucumbers, marinated olives. Another friends go-to dish is the meatloaf. But we always begin with a cocktail. My favorite? The Rose Colored Glasses, with Reyka vodka, the slightly astringent aperol and lime. Every-thing looks better after one of those. For brunch, the Bloody Marys look tasty. 1 HULLABALOO517 Clematis St., downtown West Palm Beach; 833-1033 or www. sub-culture.org/hul-labaloo/ This gastropub offers Italian-inspired fare and specialty cocktails.You could go for a pizza baked in the wood-fired oven (the Speck Ham & Arugula sounded interesting) or do as we did, savoring a Supreme, with toma-to sauce, chorizo and other savories. But it was the cocktails that won our hearts, with the Dio, a concoction of Maestro Dobel Tequila Diamante, Giffard creme de mure, sage, fresh grapefruit and lime, with the sour of the citrus contrasting nicely with the sweetness of the blackberry-infused crme de mure. 3 CWS522 Lucerne Ave., downtown Lake Worth; 318-5637 or www.cwslw.com. My friends and I have come to appreciate CWS for its mix of brunch and dinner menus. Come for a drink and a snack before a show at the Lake Worth Playhouse or the Duncan Theatre. Or enjoy a full meal „ the cauliflow-er steak hit the spot on a night when we were craving vegetarian fare, but the Damn Good Burger was hearty and flavorful for the carnivore in our crowd. Oh, and the drinks. Theres a certain friend who has acquired a taste for pink drinks. I think The Kitty Hustler, with Hangar One vodka, Valdespino sherry, more sherry, strawberries and raspberries, would fit the bill. „ Scott Simmons LIBBYVISION FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Fork & Cork >> When: 6-9 p.m. April 6 >> Where: Legacy Place, 11290 Legacy Ave., Palm Beach Gardens >> Cost: $50. >> Info: www.littlesmiles.org
