FLORIDA WRITERSSearching Florida’s past for the beginnings of human life Q An Ice Age Mystery: Unearthing the Secrets of the Old Vero Site,Ž by Rody Johnson. University Press of Florida. 224 pages. Hardcover, $24.95. For 100 years, the human and other remains of Vero, Fla., have engaged the skills and imagination of professional and amateur archaeolo-gists. Just what was the region like dur-ing the Ice Age? What grew there? What were the geological features? Did animals thrive? Did humans leave their marks „ and their bones „ somewhere in the layers of sediment washed by intruding waters? And why are these questions important? The history of archaeological investigations of the Old Vero siteŽ is character-ized by sporadic periods of accelerated interest and action separated by longer periods of general neglect. Rody John-son tells the story in a highly accessible style, even making the forays into science understandable and engaging. Its a story of diehard fanatics, professional rivalries, hometown boosters and local kids with nothing better to do than search for Ice Age tools, fossils, bones and other evi-dentiary signs of life, both individual and communal. Yes, before there was todays Vero Beach, perhaps 10,000 years before, there was Vero Man „ or more likely, Vero Woman. Mr. Johnson divides his book into two parts. The first begins with the 1916 discovery by geologist Elias Sellards of Ice Age human and animal remains. His interpretation, originally challenged by leading authorities, was eventually sup-ported by radiocarbon dating technology. Unfortunately, this justification came long after the dismissal of Mr. Sellards claims had crushed his career and spirit. The author traces the ebbs and flows of interest in the Old Vero site, sets this pattern in the context of other Ice Age research sites and ends this section with reference to a long period of research dormancy. Along the way, we meet the important players in the field, generation by generation, and learn about major find-ings nearby and far away that rival the Old Vero sites claim for attention. Part two of the book focuses on the resurgence of interest, the development of the Vero Beach/Indian River area, the renewal of local archaeological interest and education and the formation of civic organizations dedicated to continuing the work Mr. Sellards started so long ago. This is a story of public pride and a sense of responsibility. Its a story of rais-ing funds, organizing and bringing the best of current expertise to the Old Vero enterprise. Ultimately, its a success story, but an open-ended one in that the project goes on „ and on. The main player in the renewal of activity has been the Old Vero Ice Age Sites Committee, whose website features the opening of the fourth season of activ-ity since the committees initial plans were put into action. See The committee engaged prominent and committed professionals to build upon the past and ensure the future. These include Andrew Hemmings and James Adovasio of the Mercyhurst Archaeologi-cal Institute, who carried the scientific ball forward while locals Susan Grandpi-erre, Sandra Rawls and others did much of the organizing. The committees motto Dig Old VeroŽ says it all. The organiza-tion, with its unpronounceable acronym OVIASC, is now a community treasure, a glowing example of citizen activism. Mr. Johnson provides chapter notes (including interview references), a glos-sary, a bibliography and an index. This lively and fascinating book is an intelligent examination of how scientific endeavor operates over time and how community life can be focused and ener-gized. Its also filled with portraits of col-orful personalities.About the authorRody Johnson is the author of several books, including Chasing the Wind: Inside the Alternative Energy Battle,Ž The Rise and Fall of Dodgertown: 60 Years of Baseball in Vero BeachŽ and Different Battles: The Search for a World War II Hero.Ž He holds engineering and MBA degrees and made his career in aerospace project management before he became publisher of a community news-paper. He lives in Vero Beach.

OPINION George Patton’s politicsI woke up this morning and instead of getting myself a beer, like Jim Morrison, I got myself a question: Dad, do you think Gen. George Patton would have liked Trump?ŽEither a beer or a spiked question at 6 a.m. will lead roughly to the same result: Intoxication. Ive found it difficult to think of anything else ever since. Gen. George S. Patton Jr. most famously commanded the tough Third Army in World War II. President Donald J. Trump most famously created his persona, Trump. Nash Bennett Williams, famous or not, is a kid fascinated by history even before dawn. How are they connected and why would Nashs question matter? To start with, Americans now living still include veterans of World War II whose lives were influenced by Patton then and by Trump, now. And all of us, arguably, may breathe the same air Patton breathed „ before he died in a Heidelberg hospital following an acci-dent under suspicious circumstances, appar-ently, on Dec. 21, 1945, some seven months after the German surrender in Europe. Our 45th president, by the way, was born about six months after Pattons death, on June 14, 1946. Which means hes a baby-boomer, a species well known for inhaling and exhaling more of everything, including bombast in Trumps case, than anyone else who ever lived. So we are connected, and Patton remains current history. Jesus is current history, too, in the respirational sense „ the sense of breathing in and out on the planet. Do we in fact breathe the same air, the same molecules or atoms, once used by George S. Patton Jr., Jesus or Julius Caesar? Marquette University biology Professor Martin C. Maurice has answered the question obliquely, this way: There is some truth to this possibilityƒ. There may have been a carbon atom in last nights cupcake that was once integral to the structure of Julius Cae-sars left toenail.Ž Thats not very appealing. I may give up cupcakes. Since few atoms ever escape the Earths atmosphere and none change form, unlike molecules, the professor draws an obvious conclusion: Every breath you take has, at one time or another, been associated with another living organism.Ž But the organism known as Patton would have felt little respect or affection for the organism known as Trump. In Pattons view, son, Trump is a whore.Whats a whore? Ill explain that later. A lot later.Thats the reason I have never liked politics or politicians „ they are always switch-ing sides, changing bed partners in their politics,Ž Patton said. Trump switched parties five times beginning in 1987 when he registered as a Repub-lican, according to news reports in 2015. He became a Democrat in 1999, an Indepen-dent in 2001, a Republican again in 2009, then left the party in 2011, indicating he wished to join no political party. Now, hes a Republican again. In contrast, General Patton joined the United States Army in 1909. He served in that party until his death in 1945. The soldier is also a citizen. In fact, the highest obligation and privilege of citizen-ship is that of bearing arms for ones coun-try,Ž Patton said. Trump received five draft deferments during the Vietnam War: four so he could remain at either Fordham University or in the real estate program at the Wharton School of Business, and one for bone spurs in his heel after college, which later went away, he has said. On the day he graduated from Wharton, 40 Americans were killed in Vietnam. Trump has made a lot of promises and broken many of them. Hes switched bed partners many times, literally and figura-tively. Hes told countless lies to the country and his constituents, and before that to his business partners. Everybody knows that, even his apologists. They just dont care. Say what you mean and mean what you say,Ž said Patton, who did care., which calls to account politicians of both or any parties by analyzing what they say and comparing it to demon-strable facts, points out just a few of Trumps twisted tweets: This Russian thing with Trump and Russia is a made-up story,Ž Trump said. Before the presidential campaign, I didnt know Steve Bannon,Ž Trump said. Terrorism and terrorist attacks in the United States and Europe have gotten to a point where its not even being reported,Ž Trump said. All lies. Along with promises about preserving Medicare and Medicaid. Or boasts that he convinced company executives at an Indianapolis factory (Carrier) to save 1,100 jobs instead of moving them to Mexico, last December. Three hundred of those jobs werent planned for extradition, anyway. Meanwhile, the company has just announced it will lay off at least 600 employees this year, with the last 290 getting pink slips three days before Christmas, 2017.Patton would have detested that or any empty boast.He would have hated Trumps inability to lead by example, too. Always do everything you ask of those you command,Ž Patton said. Do not make excuses, whether its your fault or not,Ž Patton said. Theres a great deal of talk about loyalty from the bottom to the top. Loyalty from the top down is even more necessary and is much less prevalent. One of the most fre-quently noted characteristics of great men who have remained great is loyalty to their subordinates,Ž Patton said. This is what Trump said, and not to Americans but to Russians sitting in the Oval Office of the White House on May 10: I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut-job.Ž Patton said one other thing, too, presaging Trumps ascendency: Moral courage is the most valuable and usually the most absent characteristic in men.Ž Q A4 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 1-7, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY PublisherBarbara Shaferbshafer@floridaweekly.comEditor Scott Reporters & ContributorsLeslie Lilly Roger Williams Evan Williams Janis Fontaine Sallie James Mary Thurwachter Amy Woods Carol Saunders Larry Bush Steven J.

Ankara summoned the American ambassador to protest allegedly aggres-sive and unprofessional actionsŽ by the Washington, D.C., police. Their offense? Intervening after Turkish security per-sonnel mauled peaceful protesters out-side the Turkish ambassadors residence in Washington. Video of the incident is jaw-dropping. About a dozen people protested Turk-ish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan „ arriving at the ambassadors resi-dence after a White House visit „ from across the street, separated by police from Erdogans forces. Then guards sud-denly rushed en masse past the D.C. cops to beat up the demonstrators. Press accounts can obscure the truth of what happened. The two sides didnt really clashŽ or engage in a violent con-frontation,Ž as is often reported. There was an overwhelming aggressor „ the thuggish security personnel of the head of state of, amazingly enough, a NATO country. Dressed in black suits, the guards repeatedly kick in the face a man who had been thrown to the ground. They put a woman in a headlock. Clearly, assaulting innocent people is a core competency. This incident, which injured 11, is not the most consequential event in the world. Its not the Syrian war, or a North Korean missile test. We have large national inter-ests at stake with Turkey, especially in navigating the complex currents in the Syria civil war. But its not nothing, either. It deserves more than State Department statements of concern.Ž Especially given the context. The guards didnt lash out on their own. They charged under the watchful eye of President Erdo-gan, who emerged from a black Mercedes-Benz to observe the assault. Some media reports contend that Erdogan himself may have given the order for the attack. This is a second offense for the Turks. A year ago, they beat up protesters and disfavored journalists outside an Erdogan talk at the Brookings Institution in Wash-ington. Never seen anything like this,Ž one reporter wrote. If you hang around President Erdogan long enough, though, youll see it all. Erdogan is a thug who has bullied, cheated and purged his way to the head of a budding authoritarian state, accumu-lating powers unparalleled since Ataturk. It speaks to the nature of his regime that Turkish officials insist the guards acted in self-defense.Ž The Trump administration is obviously not putting an emphasis on promoting our values abroad, but its another thing to shrug off an assault on the rights of protesters on our own soil. Not only did the Turks carry out this attack, they are thumbing their noses at us by summoning our ambassador over it. The Turkish goons who punched and kicked people should be identified and charged with crimes. They are beyond our reach, either because they are back in Turkey or have diplomatic immunity. But we should ask for them to be returned and for their immunity to be waived. When these requests are inevitably refused, the Turkish ambassador to the U.S. (heard saying during the incident, You cannot touch usŽ) should be expelled. Erdogan is crushing his opponents with impunity in Turkey. Reacting firmly to this attack at least will send the mes-sage, Not in our house.Ž Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly roger

Female bears that gave birth to cubs that were only 12 ounces at the end of January are beginning to move around more with their young, which may now be 5 to 10 pounds. As the cubs continue to grow, the family unit will roam and can be more visible to people. Now is the time to expect bears to show up looking for food,Ž said Dave Telesco, director of FWCs bear manage-ment program. If they cant find food in your neighborhood, theyll move on.Ž Bears are also in search of potential mates. While black bears generally are not aggressive, they have injured people in Florida. Never approach any bear. When walking dogs in bear country, keep them close to you and be aware of your surroundings. Dogs can trigger defensive behaviors from bears, espe-cially females with cubs. To keep bears away from your home and neighborhood, follow these simple tips: Q Secure household garbage in a sturdy shed, garage or a wildlife-resistant container. Q Put household garbage out on morning of pickup rather than the night before. Q Secure commercial garbage in bear-resistant dumpsters. Q Protect gardens, beehives, compost and livestock with electric fencing. Q Encourage your homeowners association or local government to institute bylaws or ordinances to require trash be kept secure from bears. Q Feed pets indoors or bring in dishes after feeding. Q Clean grills and store them in a secure place. Q Remove wildlife feeders or make them bear-resistant. Q Pick ripe fruit from trees and remove fallen fruit from the ground. It is illegal in Florida to intentionally feed bears or leave out food or garbage that will attract bears and cause human-bear conflicts. Remember to slow down when driving, particularly on rural highways at dawn or dusk. Watch for road signs identifying bear crossing areas. Each year in Florida, an average of 240 Flor-ida bears are killed after being hit by vehicles. Having conflicts with bears? Call one of the FWCs five regional offices. Go to and click on Contact Regional OfficesŽ to find the phone number for your region. If you feel threatened by a bear or want to report someone who is either harming bears or intentionally feeding them, call the FWCs Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-3922. More information is available at Q How does FWC do it?The FWC surveyed nearly 11 million acres in Florida to come up with its estimates of the state’s black bear population and location. Barbed-wire enclosures containing a small food reward were used to collect hair samples left behind when the bear squeezed between the wires for the food. Because state-of-the art genetic analysis of these hair samples enables researchers to identify individual bears, they can determine if the hair sample is from a bear that has already visited an enclosure or a new bear not previously identified. Population modeling work based on these genetic results, which is conducted by the University of Tennessee, provides FWC with an accurate estimate of bear numbers. Black bear basics>> FWC biologists estimate that there are approximately 4,050 black bears in Florida. They are the only species of bear found in the state. >> Adult male black bears usually weigh 250 to 350 pounds. The largest adult male black bear in Florida weighed 760 pounds. >> Adult female black bears usually weigh between 130 and 180 pounds. The largest adult female black bear in Florida weighed 400 pounds. >> Adult male black bears usually live within a 60-square-mile area, whereas females usually live within a 15-square-mile area. >> Female bears have their rst litter at about 3 years old and generally have a litter every other year. >> In Florida, the breeding season runs from June to August and cubs are born around late January or early February. >> Bears are excellent climbers and often climb trees when they are frightened. >> About 80 percent of a black bear's diet comes from plants (e.g., fruits, nuts, berries), 15 percent from insects (e.g., termites, ants, yellow jackets) and 5 percent from meat (e.g., opossums, armadillos, carrion).

MARTY BECKER, KIM CAMPBELL THORNTON AND MIKKEL BECKER Q Whats the difference between kitten food and food for adult cats? Kittens grow rapidly and need high levels of nutrients. Foods appropriate for kit-tens are labeled for growthŽ or for all life stages.Ž Look for a food that has been tested with feeding trials, meaning the company has fed it to kittens for a specific period of time to make sure it meets their needs. Once kittens reach maturity, they can start eating a main-tenance diet for adults. Large cats such as Maine coons, ragdolls or Savannas may do best if they eat kitten food for a longer period than smaller cats. Q Early exposure to pets may help reduce an infants risk of allergies and obesity, according to a new study from the University of Alberta. Babies from families with pets showed higher levels of two types of microbes „ Ruminococ-cus and Oscillospira „ that have been linked with reduced incidence of child-hood allergies and obesity. The find-ings build on two decades of research showing that children who grow up with dogs have lower rates of asthma. Researchers believe that exposure to dirt and bacteria early in life „ from contact with a dogs fur and paws, for example „ can create early immunity. Q A basset bleu isnt a fancy French cheese but instead a cousin of the basset hound. The low-slung hound hails from Gascony, in southwest France. The bas-set bleu was bred down in size from the grande bleu de Gascogne and has a distinctive mottled black and white coat „ giving a slate-blue effect „ with or without black patches. He also has tan markings above the eyes, on the cheeks and lips, inside the ears, on the legs and under the tail. Basset bleus are play-ful and social, but love following scent trails above all else.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 1-7, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELJeep Wrangler Unlimited, the brawny coddlerThe classic styling of todays Jeep Wrangler is part of a slow design evo-lution from its WWII founding father. Retaining the visual connection to an American hero has been so successful that it sustains an entire brand. It portrays a ruggedness that can even make a milk run look like an adventure. But while the appearance is old fash-ioned, those who havent checked out a Wrangler in a while might be in for a surprise. The first CJs (Civilian Jeeps) were low on creature comforts, and the option list was mostly agricultural equipment. Decades later, it was still a rudimen-tary 4x4 with rear seats being one of the pricier add-ons. But during this progression, a select group of people started embracing a lifestyle that the go-anywhere CJs provided. As the appeal of being a weekend warriorŽ has spread further into the mainstream, Jeep has been adapting their fundamental 4x4 to carry more creature comforts. This cozy evolution has led to an off-roader like the one seen here. The Wrangler Unlimited offers a longer wheelbase so it can fit four full doors, and everything is nicely color-coordinated. But it also has a beefy first impression that proves its ready to join its predecessors on the muddy trail. In fact, the latest generations largest difference is how much a Jeep can be a fully enclosed machine. There are still soft tops and low cut doors for the adventurers who like to be one with nature, but a fully loaded version like our range-topping Wrangler Rubicon Recon comes standard with full doors that feature power windows and locks. Plus, the fiberglass roof can now be body-colored to make this look like it was born to be an enclosed SUV. Its still a true Jeep, and so it only takes two wrenches, 14 bolts, two spin-dles, and the removal of seven com-ponents to become a full convertible. But this conversion takes a muscular set of helping hands, and no one will need a day at the gym once the task is done. Inside there is a similar feeling of robust design with concessions for added comfort. Besides options like power windows and locks, the Wrangler can be outfitted with a strong air conditioner, a water-resistance subwoofer stereo, and satel-lite navigation. These seem like great options no matter if its a trip through the Everglades or Main Street. The only complaint is that they feel like a genera-tion behind the mainstream. A basic two-door Wrangler starts around $25K, and a four-door Unlimited Rubicon Recon like our test vehicle is over $44K. For that kind of money, the standard SUV shopper often expects automatic climate control, instead of the analog A/C controls. And the navigation sys-tem could have a larger and crisper screen. Then again, there are many of us who are just impressed with such modern conveniences available in an icon that once was proud for offering a heater. Thus, the perception of the Wranglers interior features is the true telltale dividing line of people who are ready to join the Jeep lifestyle. For those newly minted weekend warriors, the best Jeep features are actu-ally underneath the skin. For example, the upper level trims offer a sway bar for the front suspension that can be disconnected just by touch-ing a b utton next to the speedometer. What this means in the real world is a vehicle that feels steady on the school drop-off runs, but it also has the ability to release the suspension for boulder-clearing levels of travel. All levels of the Wranglers are quite capable right out of the box. Its thanks to a 4x4 drivetrain that features a two-speed transfer case, sturdy axles, and good ground clearance „ all as standard.Besides off-road prowess, the other great Jeep tradition is personalization. No matter if its Mopar accessories direct from the dealership, or aftermar-ket components out of the dozens of mail order catalogs/websites, the endur-ing appeal of the Wrangler is being able to make it your own. Living this Jeep lifestyle has always been a camaraderie of individual spirts rallying around a central theme of peo-ple who love a good 4x4. The difference today is the club members are a lot more comfortable than they used to be. Q myles

HEALTHY LIVING Summer’s here; let’s keep it safeSummer vacation has arrived and children will soon be enjoying camp activities, sports, swimming and addi-tional outdoor fun. Parents also may take this time to plan unforgettable fam-ily vacations or simply relax at home with their loved ones. My husband and I cherish the special moments we get to spend with our chil-dren while also enjoying the beautiful weather South Florida has to offer. As a parent, safety always comes first to help ensure my familys well-being no mat-ter what our plans are. Sunblock, water, healthy snacks and protective gear are essentials for any of our summer plans. Below are some helpful tips as you plan your summer schedules with your kids.Staying safe during the summer monthsKeep cool and drink lots of water to help avoid heat-related illness. Dont wait until your child asks for a drink. Heat cramps, often caused by dehydra-tion, can progress to heat exhaus-tion and potentially fatal heat stroke. To protect your family against the heat, wear loose-fitting, lightweight clothes, eat well-balanced, light meals and avoid strenuous work during extreme heat.Be water wise and teach your children to swim. At the pool, swim under life-guard supervision, obey all rules and swim only in desig-nated areas. If you get caught in an ocean current, swim parallel to shore and wait for the current to lessen. Bake a cake, not your skin. Try to limit sun exposure during peak times (generally 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.). If your child gets sunburned, try giv-ing them a cool bath or shower, applying aloe gel or other soothing lotion. Redness and pain associ-ated with sunburn may not appear immediately, but the effects of blisters and peeling skin may last a few days. Severe reactions, which can include fever, chills, nausea or rash, may require medical attention. Pass the salad please, but hold the salmonella, shigella and E. coli. Food poisoning can ruin a good time, so watch what your children eat. Cook meat, poultry, fish and shellfish thor-oughly and make sure to wash fruits and vegetables carefully. Common signs and symptoms of food poisoning include abdominal cramps, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and fever. Have fun, but be safeEnjoy a juicy slice of watermelon, dive into a cool pool and help your child build their best sandcastle. You cant remove all the risks your child may face, but by putting safety first and follow-ing a few simple steps, you can enjoy your summer and make lots of happy memories. Not just as a mom, but also as the CEO of the Palm Beach Childrens Hos-pital at St. Marys Medical Center, its important to me that parents in our community remember some vital tips for this upcoming season to help ensure their childrens safety.

A14 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 1-7, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYCoral Rum in Riviera Beach are among the list of newcomers added to now established names such as Wicked Dol-phin Distillery in Cape Coral and Drum Circle Distilling in Sarasota. Alligator Bay owners Alex and Benjamin Voss, who took their companys name from a bay in Charlotte Harbor, are brothers who grew up in Naples. They found the right spot to open their facility to make rum a few counties north with lower rent, along a quiet street in Punta Gorda. Prior to opening last year, Alex completed an appren-ticeship at a distillery on the Hawaiian island of Maui. To us, we like to say this is putting Punta Gorda on the distillation map,Ž he said. Like many other distilleries, Alligator offers tours to show how the rum is crafted, from the brown sugar and molasses that come from the states vast sugar cane fields to the pot stills and oak barrels that help create the final product. In Fort Myers, List Distillery is billed as the only certified organic distillery in the state. Owners Thomas and Renate List are from Austria, where Ms. Lists uncle founded the famous Jgermeister brand. With what she learned from him we started our business over here,Ž Mr. List said. He emphasizes the higher quality of small distillers. Their Mr. Toms Spir-itsŽ brand of rum, gin, whiskey and other products is often flavored with local ingredients such as fresh fruit, habanero peppers, and honey. Our liquor is made more with love compared to the big ones,Ž he said. In 2013, there were fewer than 10 craft distilleries in Florida, those that pro-duce 75,000 gallons or less per year by the states definition (lawmakers have considered raising that to 250,000 gal-lons). Now there are at least 30 spread out across the state. In South Florida, they often specialize in rum because of close access to sugar cane products. Thats one reason why JoAnn Elardo started Wicked Dolphin, which features a towering copper pot still. Ms. Elardo is from Long Island and owned a large footwear distribution company in Europe before opening the distillery in 2013. She started thinking about it four or five years before that. I noticed that Florida produces 50 percent of the sugar cane for the United States,Ž she said. I was having a cocktail „ it was a terrible cocktail, a terrible rum „ and it was a rum produced in a different country, and I said, Why the heck arent we doing a Florida rum?Ž Now Wicked Dolphin rum, vodka and other liquors are sold in more than 3,000 locations in the U.S., she said. Weve been lucky,Ž Ms. Elardo said. If you want to have a distillery, its a labor of love. Its not a quick get rich. Believe me, Ive had other businesses. You really have to love what youre doing.Ž She adds that about 20,000 people per year visit her distillery in the Cape, but aside from the small free taste shes allowed to give them on a tour of the facility, they must to go elsewhere to sit down and order a craft cocktail.Distilleries cut off from cocktails Breweries and wineries can sell directly to customers right where the product is made, such as offering them a glass of beer or selling an unlimited number of bottles of wine to go. By contrast, distilleries can only sell two bottles of liquor per person, per brand, per year on site. The only drinks they can pour are free tastes. Why can clothing companies, shoe companies, beer companies and wine companies have the right to sell their product without a limit (where its made)?Ž Ms. Elardo asks. Why does only a craft distillery have a limit? Its not right, its not fair, and it does not let us promote our business.Ž And, under the current three-tierŽ system (manufacturer, distributor, retail), distilleries are not allowed to sell their products directly to retail stores such as ABC Fine Wines & Spirits or local restaurants and bars. Brewer-ies also must use a distributor to sell to retailers, while wineries have the least restrictive rules, enabling them to sell wine entirely by themselves if they choose to. Distillers also cant ship liquor to tourists who live out of state. Neither are they permitted to open a second tasting room in some other location, such as a popular downtown area. Ive worked in some distilleries out in Colorado, Utah, those areas,Ž said Dustin Skartved, who opened Citrus Distillers in Riviera Beach in 2012. The biggest thing out there is you can have a satellite facility. Thats what really kicked off the craft movement in those areas, I really believe. They can sell unlimited bottles at their plant and they were allowed to open up a satellite tast-ing room anywhere they wanted, down-town, a bar, anywhere.Ž Huge distributors such as Southern SPIRITFrom page 1 Florida distilleries Black Coral Rum West Palm Beach Citrus Distillers Riviera Beach Alligator Bay Distillers Punta Gorda Wicked Dolphin Distillery Cape Coral List Distillery, Fort Myers St. Augustine Distillery, St. Augustine Drum Circle Distilling, Sarasota 1234567 Distillery Pensacola Tallahassee Jacksonville Orlando Tampa Fort Myers Naples Miami Key West West Palm Beach There are about 30 licensed craft distilleries in Florida from the panhandle to the keys.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 1-7, 2017 NEWS A15Glazers Wine & Spirits and Republic National have opposed rules that would allow distilleries to sell more on their own because it would cost them money, Mr. McDaniel said. Neither company responded to a request for comment. Not all distributors oppose allowing distillers to sell more on their own, even if it might cost them business in the short term, said Kimberly Robert-son of Modestino Beverages, a small distribution company based in South Fort Myers that is focused solely on craft spirits. Ms. Robertson works with distillers in Florida such as List, placing orders, organizing tastings and making deliveries. I would like to see the rules changed in their favor to be able to sell to clients, to people that come into the distillery for tours and whatnot,Ž she said. With the distillery being able to sell directly to consumers it would help them out.Ž She adds, But there has to be limitations. I think it should be just all the craft distilleries that are allowed to do that.Ž The Florida Legislature this year passed a bill that, if signed by the gov-ernor, would allow distillers to sell six bottles per person instead of two. It is a disappointment to many, especially after an initial bill asked to remove all limits on bottle sales from tasting rooms, allow for drinks by the glass from the distillery, the ability to open second tasting rooms, ship liquor, lower licensing fees, and increase the per-gal-lon limit definition of a craftŽ distillery. It was a token,Ž said Philip McDaniel of St. Augustine Distillery, and founder of Florida Distillers Guild. While six bottles is interesting its not going to change our business model. Its not going to allow (distilleries) to grow.Ž The ability to sell drinks has been a boon for distilleries in other states, such as Van Brunt Stillhouse, which produces whiskey, rum and grappa in Brooklyn, N.Y. Owner Daric Schlesselman said New York law changed three years ago to allow it. And it went from being zero percent of our business to 25 percent of our business during a year,Ž he said, before dropping to about 15 percent as whole-sale sales grew. So that was huge. We were smaller then.Ž The New York State Distillers Guild says craft distilleries grew by 500 percent since 2011 to 150 distilleries, spurred by a drop in licensing fees and, Mr. Schlesselman said, a slow unrolling of new benefits.Ž Even with Floridas restrictions, distilleries have proliferated in the state, albeit at a slower pace. One of the first new laws slightly easing rules for distilleries in Florida went into effect in 2013, allowing them to sell the two bottles instead of none from their production facility. Wicked Dol-phin sold a bottle of rum, marking the first day since Prohibition (1920 … 1933) that a small Florida distillery legally sold a bottle of booze over the counter. The two-bottle rule and other changes came after efforts by then new dis-tillers such as Mr. McDaniel and Ms. Elardo. It also marked a recognition by politicians that the craft distillery indus-try in Florida, like craft breweries and pretty much craft whatever, is grow-ing. The Brewers Association says that Florida craft breweries grew in number from 45 in 2011 to 195 last year. (Distillers) wont grow as fast as craft brewing because beer is consumed so quickly,Ž said Mr. Skartved of Citrus Distillers. But I definitely see it, its going to have its own speed, but not as fast as the breweries. They can turn over a lot of cups.Ž While Alex and Benjamin Voss of Alligator Bay are hoping that the rules change in their favor as well, theyre looking ahead to mirror other success stories in Florida, distilleries that have found routes to profitability under cur-rent rules. In five years, I want to look back and say I survived my first five years,Ž Ben-jamin Voss said. And then in 10 years Id like to see myself where Troy Roberts (of Drum Circle Distilling in Sarasota) is now, if not better.Ž Mr. List sees younger generations such as his son, who works for the com-pany, continuing to drive a trend toward craft products. I see the whole industry very strong because theres a big rethinking going on with the consumers,Ž he said. Peo-ple are going away from the chain think-ing, you know? People are also starting to realize they should live a little better. I think the Millennials are very good pioneers to lead this.Ž Q Thomas and Renate List own List Distillery in Fort Myers.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 1-7, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYIt was a bright and sunny afternoon, April 6, when the Loxahatchee Guild a vocal proponent for preservation of local history,Ž held its annual meeting and spring luncheon in the Ibis Room at the Wyndham Grand at Harbourside in Jupiter. As a proud member of the guild for many years, I didnt want to miss this event because my dear friend Kathy Greene Jan Davisson s beautiful daughter and a local Gal on the GoŽ radio celebrity, was going to be the guest speaker. With a title of Memories take us backƒ Dreams take us forward,Ž Ms. Greene brought along a program that included many wonderful photos from the past as Jupiter was growing to be the fabulous town it has become, full of history, wonderful people and much beauty. The popular Mrs. Davisson, (who is currently on vacation in Ireland with her handsome hubby, John ) did her part by donating her book, Cameos of Flor-ida History, Vignettes of Early Jupiter History,Ž to every guest to take home. Co-Chairs Kathy Bourassa and Pat Bradford organized the sold-out luncheon that included a light repast of grilled chicken salad, topped off with Key lime pie for dessert. The Loxahatchee Guild, currently with 85 members, has marked 35 years of saving local history. The guild recent-ly completed two major projects „ total restoration of the kitchen in the DuBois House plus supplementing the existing furnishings in the living room, dining room and bedroom, and reopening the house to the public after being closed since 2005 because of hurricane dam-age. The second project was the restoration of the Jupiter Railway Depot a stop along the way of Flaglers railroad. Thanks to the guilds financial sup-port, the building was repaired, painted, newly roofed and now sits on Alternate A1A as part of Jupiters history. During the program, the guild presented a check to Jamie Stuve of the Loxahatchee Historical Society for $25,000 to help repair the roof on the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse If you want to know more, email, visit or go check out the guilds Facebook page.A happy retirement to ArtCenter’s Evelyne BatesThis season has been a momentous time for the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta. It has been the retirement year of Evelyne Bates after serving there as both a staff member and a volun-teer for 48 years. She and her husband, Wally, have been permanent fix-tures at every event I have attended there since moving here and opening Tequesta Galleries many years ago. She recently sent me a letter that explained much about her time at the ArtCenter that she has been serving since 1970, with enthusiasm and talent. Working with the founder, Christopher Norton, she also taught ceramics over the years to many children who have enjoyed her unique way of reaching out to each one. In her letter, she said, It has been a milestone for me and Wally, too. So much history has passed through our 48 years here in the Jupiter area „ a lot of firsts.Ž Mrs. Bates was there to greet and welcome the guests for every event, making it her point to know everyone involved in the ArtCenter. She will still serve as the centers historian and will continue to coordinate and conduct the centers ArtBus tours. In her letter, Mrs. Bates said she is still the docent tour guide and Brick Lady to the Path of History at the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse (for 24 years). Best of all, as of this month, June, she and Wally will have been married for 69 years. Symphony plays triumphantfinale to season at Kravis The Palm Beach Symphony performed a triumphant final concert to a full house at the Kravis Center on April 13. The Russian FireŽ concert wrapped up the 43rd season of the classical music organization with almost 1,300 attend-ees, and marked the debut performance of Stravinskys Suite from The Fire-bird,Ž which received a rousing ovation. Artistic and Music Director Ramon Tebar and the 71-piece orchestra delivered a powerful and romantic program focused on three popular Russian com-posers who were determined to come out from the shadows of their Western European counterparts. The evening began with Rachmaninovs VocaliseŽ (from 14 Romances,Ž Op.34), played delicately and beautifully while conveying the emotional melody of the work. Then, the sympho-ny performed Stravinskys Suite from The Firebird,Ž the 20th century ballet score, taking the audience on a journey through each movement with passion and precision. The crowd-pleasing per-formance was mesmerizing as it told the story of a Russian fairy tale, bringing the audience to its feet. After the intermission, Mr. Tebar and the orchestra embarked upon Tchai-kovskys Symphony No. 6 in B Minor,Ž Op. 74 (PathtiqueŽ), a passionate and expressive masterpiece that was the composers final completed symphony. This was a bold, incredible concert to end our season,Ž said David McClymont the orchestras executive director. The Palm Beach Sympho-ny is becoming known for performing world-class concerts in our hometown. Ramn and all of our talented musicians are ensuring that we keep the arts alive in Palm Beach County through these inspiring performances.Ž A pre-concert dinner was held for symphony members in the Kravis Cen-ters Cohen Pavilion. At the dinner, the symphony presented four deserv-ing Palm Beach County students with donated instruments to continue their musical education: John Shelley of Jupiter High Jariel Murillo and Alliyha Salomon of South Grade Elementary and Ivan Perez of Sunrise Park Elementary The students were nominated by their teachers and received the instruments through the symphonys Paul and Sandra Goldner Conserva-tory of Music The symphony also presented tokens of appreciation to the McNulty Charitable Family Founda-tion Leonard and Norma Klorfine and Paul and Sandra Goldner for their support of the symphony throughout the season.

For the upcoming Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 through Nov. 30, forecasters predict a 45 percent chance of an above-normal season, a 35 percent chance of a near-normal sea-son, and only a 20 percent chance of a below-normal season. Forecasters predict a 70 percent likelihood of 11 to 17 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 5 to 9 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 2 to 4 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher). An average season produces 12 named storms of which six become hurricanes, including three major hurricanes. These numbers include Tropical Storm Arlene, a rare pre-season storm that formed over the eastern Atlantic in April. The outlook reflects our expectation of a weak or nonexistent El Nio, nearor above-average sea-surface tem-peratures across the tropical Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, and average or weaker-than-average vertical wind shear in that same region,Ž said Gerry Bell, Ph.D., lead seasonal hurricane fore-caster with NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. Strong El Nios and wind shear typically suppress development of Atlan-tic hurricanes, so the prediction for weak conditions points to more hur-ricane activity this year. Also, warmer sea surface temperatures tend to fuel hurricanes as they move across the ocean. However, the climate models are showing considerable uncertainty, which is reflected in the comparable probabilities for an above-normal and near-normal season. Q Save the sales tax on disaster supplies this weekendJune marks the start of hurricane season and a time for Floridians to stock up on qualifying disaster preparedness supplies exempt from sales tax. The 2017 Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday begins at 12:01 a.m. Friday, June 2, and ends at 11:59 p.m. Sunday, June 4. The 2017 Disaster Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday is an opportunity for Floridians to purchase supplies in preparation for a variety of storm-relat-ed activity,Ž said Leon Biegalski, execu-tive director of the Florida Department of Revenue. From powerful thunder-storms and tornados, to tropical storms and hurricanes, Florida experiences a range of potentially dangerous weath-er throughout summer and fall.

Visit us online atS A LOT TO LIKE BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 1-7, 2017 | A19 WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM TS BECOME NEWS THATS NOT UNEXPECTED any more. We awaken to learn that yet another national retailer has been hacked and once again credit-card information for millions of customers is at risk. Yet, despite all the publicity these security breaches receive and all the warn-ing consumers hear, cyber criminals still achieve success and seem more brazen than ever. Sometimes it can feel like the cyber criminals are working harder than the peo-ple who are supposed to be protecting our information,Ž says Gary Miliefsky, CEO of SnoopWall, a company that specializes in cyber security. But when consumers and businesses are vigilant, he says, they can foil those cyber criminals despite all their scheming. To that end, Mr. Miliefsky notes these cyber security trends and factors worth knowing about for the rest of 2017 and beyond: Q Serious breaches still take too long to discover. As unsettling as it is to think about, Mr. Miliefsky says, the truth is that theres generally a long lag time between when a breach happens and when its dis-covered. The average is 280 days, which means if cyber criminals hack your sys-tem today, it could be about nine months ISPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________Protect yourself and your businessSEE SECURITY, A20 X“By finding and fixing your holes, you’ll have a stronger, less exploitable infrastructure.” — Gary Miliefsky, CEO of SnoopWall, a company that specializes in cyber securityMILIEFSKY by keeping up with trends in


A20 BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 1-7, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYbefore anyone realizes theres a problem. Q Employees will continue to be critical to protection. For just about any organization, employees are the first line of defense „ and the weakest link. Typically, when a breach happens behind a firewall its because someone was tricked into clicking on a link they shouldnt have. Employees need to be educated, Mr. Miliefsky stresses. Q Cyber insurance is hot and growing hotter. A breach can prove costly to companies, which is why cyber insurance is a growing field. Just as homeown-ers insurance doesnt keep your house from catching fire, though, cyber insur-ance doesnt guard against a breach, Mr. Miliefsky warns. But a policy can help the company thats hit by a breach regain its financial footing. Q Companies might begin to realize the importance of managing their intranet. Most breaches happen behind firewalls. Youll need more than antivi-rus to stop the bad guys,Ž Mr. Miliefsky says. This includes anti-phishing tools, network access control, zero-day mal-ware quarantining and other next-gen-eration approaches focusing on the root cause of how breaches happen. Without a network access control solution, Mr. Miliefsky says, you wont be able to tell who is on your network, including if the cleaners are plugging in a laptop at midnight or if a consultant is on the wrong VLAN, like human resources or payroll where you dont want them to have access. In addition, you should find and fix all your common vulnerabilities and exposures. Learn more about them at the National Vulnerability Database at or By finding and fixing your holes, youll have a stronger, less exploitable infrastructure,Ž Mr. Miliefsky says. Q The best protection for consumers is still self protection. Consumers cant always count on how well their bank or their favorite retailer handles cyber security. But anyone can take steps to be safer, Mr. Miliefsky says. Change passwords frequently. Put a sticker over your laptops webcam when youre not using it. Protect your smartphone by turning off WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC and GPS except when you need them. Delete cookies and your browsing history regularly. When consumers learn the importance of mobile-device hygiene,Ž both they and the places they work are at less risk of suffering a data breach or loss. We should be asking ourselves: Why not prevent breaches instead of reacting to them?Ž Mr. Miliefsky says. Corporate America and consumers dont need to sit around waiting to become cyber crime victims.Ž Q SECURITYFrom page 19 Name: Diane Bain Ridley Title: Senior vice president-wealth management, Merrill Lynch Location: Palm Beach GardensBY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@” oridaweekly.comDiane Ridley, a senior vice presidentwealth management for Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, recently was named to Forbes inaugu-ral Americas Top Women Advisors 2017 list. The list published, which came out in February, recognized only 200 women across the country. Ms. Ridley enjoys the solution-solving aspect of her work and the personal contact. I enjoy becoming a partner in clients lives,Ž she said. Finances hit all areas of life. Im fortunate to know people I can gain wisdom from.Ž She calls her appointments visits, because they are always about more than investing money. We have time to catch up,Ž she said. Having been with Merrill Lynch for more than 30 years, she has served several generations of families. Her team is known for operating like a family and her areas of expertise include: people in retirement and people who are preparing for retirement, in addition to specializing in womens issues/concerns (given that she is a woman in a male-dominated field). As one of the senior partners of a Wealth Management Advisory Team, The BMR Group, our mission is to deliver the level of professional advice, guidance and service consistent with the rule set forth by our firms founder, Charles Mer-rill: The interests of our customers must come first,Ž Ms. Ridley said. Our goal is to go beyond financial solutions and be an essential life partner for our clients.Ž Ms. Ridley is married and has two stepchildren. She and her husband live in Jupiter with their two dogs. Diane Bain RidleyAge: 56 Where I grew up: I grew up in Carmel, N.Y., in Putnam County which is directly north of Westchester County. Education: I attended Putnam County Public Schools and obtained a regents diploma upon graduating high school. After high school, I went to the Univer-sity of Tampa and graduated with a BS in accounting. College of Financial Planning, achieved CRPC Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor What brought me to Florida: I came to Florida to go to college. My first job and what it taught me: I was a paper girl for the Reporter Dispatch in Carmel, N.Y. My friend Mary and I were being paid by one of the local boys to do his route for $10 apiece. After some investigation, we calculated that he was making about $60-$80 a week after paying us. We decided to stop working for him. After a few weeks of inconsistent paper delivery, he decided to give us the route. It taught me to make sure I understand the economics of my role and how I am being paid and the benefits of taking on more responsibility and standing up for myself. Just as a side note, I am still friends with that boy today. A career highlight: Its hard to think of one career highlight, as each and every day that I get to interact with my clients throughout their daily lives is rewarding. One highlight comes to mind of a client with whom I shared the sorrow of the sudden loss of her husband. We spent many tearful days to bring her out of her depression. In later years, we were able to share in the joy of her marriage. Through it all, there are financial planning issues to consider and manage. Hobbies: Cooking, reading (Im in two book clubs), gardening, spinning. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: Early on in your career, be present, do what others wont, take the initiative to lend a helping hand to your co-workers and managers, dress for the job you want „ not the one you have „and always have a positive attitude. My mentor: My mother; she died when I was 15 and her philosophy of how to live your life was inspired by The Serenity Prayer,Ž which sat in a frame by her bed. I have the words engraved in my mind. God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference; living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a timeƒŽ She was an amazing woman. Q MOVING ON UP“Our goal is to go beyond financial solutions and be an essential life partner for our clients.” — Diane Bain Ridley, Senior vice president-wealth management, Merrill Lynch MONEY & INVESTINGBitcoin is gaining in popularityIf you could go back in time, say, seven years ago, what one thing would you invest in? Maybe buy Apple? That would have been a good m ove, you w ould have made a nearly 350 percent return on your money. Or maybe purchase some Ama-zon? That would be even better with an almost 700 percent return. But what if I told you that you could have bought something with a 73 million percent payday? You may be thinking I am referring to some crazy deriva-tive product or a bet on guessing every winner in the Mens NCAA basketball championship bracket. No, I am talking about Bitcoin. In 2010, this digital currency was worth about $.003. In fact, that year, the first Bitcoin purchase was made when a man in Jacksonville paid 10,000 Bitcoin for two Papa Johns pizzas (Im not sure if they were plain or meat lovers). Today a Bitcoin is worth more than $2,200, so those two pizzas would be worth $22 million. So what are Bitcoins and why has their value soared? Bitcoin is a currency just like the U.S. dollar is a currency. It can be used to make purchases or buy services. Unlike a dollar, however, Bitcoin is not cre-ated or regulated by any government agency. Instead, Bitcoins are minedŽ by specialized software that solves very complex math equations. These math problems are so complex that even with an extremely powerful computer work-ing nonstop, a minerŽ could maybe earn .1 to .3 Bitcoin per month. This limits the number of Bitcoin in circulation. After a Bitcoin is minedŽ it can be traded or sold to anyone else. Each Bit-coin maintains a secure block chain, or transaction record of each time it is used which cannot be retroactively modified. This makes Bitcoins very tamper-proof and virtually impossible to counterfeit. Of course, a currency is worthless unless it is accepted by merchants and retail locations. And for the first few years of Bitcoins existence, the only people that would accept this currency in payment were drug dealers and other unscrupulous dark webŽ merchants. As a result, the value of the currency remained depressed. However, in 2014 various mainstream corporations began to accept Bitcoins including Zynga (the developer of Farm-ville), TigerDirect,, Newegg, Dell and even Microsoft. The next year, more than 160,000 merchants accepted Bitcoin as payment. But the real inflection point for the currency occurred in March 2016 when the government of Japan officially recog-nized Bitcoin as a legal currency. And in April 2017, the Japanese Parliament pro-claimed that Bitcoin could be used as an authorized method of government pay-ment. Demand for Bitcoin then explod-ed in the island country. The demand for Bitcoin is also very strong in China. The government heav-ily restricts capital flows from exiting the country so whenever there are issues with the Chinese stock market or yuan, investors recently have been buying Bit-coin to store their wealth. Another reason for the surge in Bitcoins value is that people are looking for a safe vehicle to store their money in global uncertain times. Brexit in the UK, the questionable viability of the Eurozone, turmoil in the Middle East, and even Trumps victory here in the U.S. have boosted safe-haven investments like gold. Some people believe that Bitcoins are also a safe place to store money as it is not associated with any government and cannot be manipulated by any gov-ernmental agency. Critics of Bitcoin point to myriad issues with the digital currency. It still does not enjoy acceptance in the major-ity of businesses across the world. There have been several instances of hack-ers stealing bitcoins from digital wallets where they are stored. And the currency is extremely volatile. It can rise or fall more than 10 percent in a single day. But despite these issues, many Bitcoin believers believe that the currencys rise in value is just beginning. With the supply of Bitcoin limited, if the digital money is accepted by the public at large it could continue its rise. However, one should expect huge price volatility and be careful of where the Bitcoins are stored. Q eric RIDLEY

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 1-7, 2017 B7 CONTRACT BRIDGETriumph of mind over matter BY STEVE BECKERThere are plays in bridge that seem to make no sense at all and yet, upon closer inspection, are demon-strably correct. Fortunately, such plays are rarely called for, but when the opportunity for one does arise, it is to be hoped that the player in the spotlight recognizes his oppor-tunity. Assume West leads the jack of hearts, won by South with the king after East signals with the six. Declarer leads a diamond to the ace, plays the queen of clubs and finesses. Unfortunately, West wins with the king and returns a heart, and South goes down one. Whats wrong with this picture, you may ask? The answer is that declarer should have made the con-tract. All he had to do was to play the eight of hearts at trick one instead of taking the king, and he would have been on Easy Street. True, the subsequent club finesse would still have lost to Wests king, but the big difference is that the defense would have been unable to take more than four tricks, while South would have been assured of nine regard-less of how East-West defended. Of course it takes iron nerves and a vivid imagination to duck the jack of hearts at trick one. But there can be no argument that playing low is the right play. After all, declarer is not in danger of losing the contract if he lets the jack hold the trick, but is in distinct jeopardy if he takes the jack with the king. Force of habit may cause declarer to win the first trick and then start think-ing of what to do next, but this would be a clear case of putting the cart before the horse. The first step always is to plan the play from the outset, and any declarer who starts thinking at trick two instead of trick one is asking for trouble. Q

B10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 1-7, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYnose faces will convince the people put-tering around inside the store to come open the doors. They are unsuccessful.As they turn to leave, slump-shouldered in their defeat, Judy Blume „ bestselling author, National Book Foun-dation medalist, designated Living Leg-end by the Library of Congress, famous-ly ardent about portraying adolescence in unflinching terms, whose books, according to the American Library Association, are some of the most often banned books in America and, thanks to the presence of over 82 million book jackets worldwide that bear her face, one of the most immediately recogniz-able authors in the world „ rushes to unlock the doors and hurry outside into the dusk before the family has a chance to re-mount their bicycles. Im so sorry!Ž she says, sounding as though she genuinely means it. We close at 6, but we open at 10 tomorrow „ every day. Please come back and see us.Ž This last request, delivered with a plaintiveness unusual for someone who has been a celebrity for so long shed be forgiven for demanding someone bring zebra milk for her coffee, does not strike this family as particularly odd (perhaps they are from Mars). In normal life, one does not get approached by one of the most celebrated young adult authors of all time, who implores that a sweaty stranger please return to see her again. You line up to see Judy Blume. People fly across state lines to see Judy Blume. Celebrities cite her amongst their great-est influences with the same frequency as Hemingway. This is a woman who provokes superla-tive adulation. Amy Poehler has suggest-ed that she would like nothing more than to sit at the authors feet. And yet, here she is, standing on a street corner, genu-inely despondent that this family „ helmeted now, and zooming away into traffic „ did not get the chance to come inside the store that she and her hus-band, nonfiction writer George Cooper, opened just over a year ago. The store in question is Books & Books @ The Studios Key West, an independent, nonprofit bookstore that Mrs. Blume and Mr. Cooper dreamt of opening half a decade before they found the right time „ and venue. Now tucked inside a glass-fronted nook at the bottom of a striped, Miami deco monolith at 533 Eaton St., the store shares an address with the nonprofit arts conglomerate, The Studios of Key West, where Mr. Cooper served as a board member for years. After the orga-nization finalized its conversion of the former Scottish Rite Masonic Center into its current headquarters in 2015, Mr. Cooper made a play for the empty retail space on the buildings ground floor. Together, he and Mrs. Blume lobbied Mitchell Kaplan, cofounder of the Miami Book Fair International and founder of the immensely successful Books & Books stores based in Coral Gables, to partner with them on a Key West out-post. Mr. Kaplan agreed to help with the logistics „ software, staff training „ if Mr. Cooper and Mrs. Blume could find the right space and raise enough money to get the whole thing going. In a town rife with ties to famous authors, by the time Mr. Cooper and Mrs. Blume began looking for a suitable space for their own store Key Wests bookstores had all but disappeared, save one: Key West Island Books, itself the subject of a 2013 article in the Tampa Bay Times titled: The last bookstore in literature-logged Key West still isnt ready for The End.Ž In a small town seemingly able to support hundreds of places to buy alcohol, ponders the author, how did only one bookstore survive? In the article, local poet and Key West Literary Seminar Executive Director Arlo Haskell sums up the issue in a few depressing words: You dont have to go down the street to buy books anymore when you can order them on your phone.Ž Mr. Haskell, like so many, appeared to believe the inevitable „ that print was, if not dead, certainly checking into hospice, heading toward the same irrelevant fate of its friends the VHS tape and 8-track. Or, at least, that certainly seemed to be the case a few years ago, when years of prophetic editorials that claimed sky-rocketing digital book sales meant the end of so-called real booksŽ seemed finally vindicated by the announcement that Borders, the omnipresent bookstore chain that employed more than 10,000 workers, would be filing for bankruptcy and shutting the doors of its 400 stores at the end of 2011. The numbers were in: E-books had finally topped print sales, and, after the release of author Stephen Kings novella, UR,Ž as an exclusive to the Kindle storefront was deemed a suc-cess, it seemed even the authors them-selves were beginning to jump onboard the e-train. Interns at publishing houses across the nation could be found hud-dled together in break rooms swapping industry ghost stories „ terrifying tales in which self-publishing on Amazon led to the permanent disappearance of the six-figure book advance. Newspapers rushed to optimize their online plat-forms to accommodate an inevitable wave of internet-savvy agoraphobes whose refusal to leave their homes to purchase the latest Sue Grafton novel clearly spelled the end of the paper route. A third-generation Kindle that showed paid advertisements to readers in exchange for a lower initial purchase price was an immediate success. Not only were bookstores dead, but books, it seemed, would now come with com-mercials. I have never been good at math, and yet, I can remember with gut-wrenching clarity the shape of a line graph passed to me by one of my fellow, over-caffein-ated and underpaid interns, who, like me, had fought tooth and nail for the privilege to trek into New York City each week to fact check galley copies for the glamorously dry book review magazine wed revered since our teen-age years, and which now deigned to pay us in metro cards. We didnt care; we were in literary heaven (which, as far as heavens go, can lean toward the pre-tentious but remains eternally and ador-ably uncool.) Ostensibly showing the number of bookstores in America over a span of 20 years, the graph consisted of a cooked spaghetti-loose line which began, aligned with a date 20 years prior, in the upper left-hand quadrant of the page, and sloped steadily downward toward our current year. It resembled a treacherously steep sledding hill, one youd attempt only with a helmet and perhaps hockey pads. Maybe I should take an accounting class just to be safe, I remember thinking. (It turned out my bonkers liberal school didnt offer them, much to my relief.) That graph struck fear into the hearts of myself and many others whod dreamed of a career in books „ realŽ books, those of the dusty, smelly, cracked spine variety. It signaled the end of libraries, of educated sales-people recommending obscure novels, replaced by unfeeling algorithms, bank-rupted booksellers, and something ter-rifying called the singularity. To be perfectly blunt, that graph can go kick rocks. After a December, 2016, article in The New York Times titled What It Takes to Open a BookstoreŽ went viral amongst the hard-copy-loving book crowd (the irony of which knows no bounds) it seemed the truth was finally out. After decades of decline „ and despite a pervasively ominous tone across the medias coverage of print sales „ the percentage of small brick and mor-tar bookstores was rising, thanks in large part to new stores willingness to finance their openings via both digital crowdfunding and on the ground, com-munity-based fundraising. By the time The New York Times had seen fit to comment, George Cooper and Judy Blume were only two months shy of celebrating 12 successful months as independent bookstore owners and operators, e-books and online retailers be damned. Though, to be fair, it hasnt been all gimlets and cupcakes. The business of tangible books, it turns out, though no longer in danger of extinction, remains a vertiginous climb towards profitability. For one thing, Mrs. Blume (no stranger to hard work with some 29 published books under her belt) had never worked in retail. We went into this knowing next to nothing except we loved Books & Bookstores. A year later were still learning. Every day is a new experience, but were no longer beginners,Ž she says. Particularly surprising was how labor-intensive running the store turned out to be, says Mr. Cooper. Every day the UPS guys come in with a cart loaded with books. Meanwhile, were going over lists of thousands of newly pub-lished books trying to decide which and how many to order.Ž While they receive constant guidance from Mr. Kaplan and his team in Coral Gables (The Mother-ship,Ž as Mrs. Blume fondly refers to them), and while their store is techni-cally a part of The Studios of Key West, both Mrs. Blume and Mr. Cooper were quick to commit early on to maintaining autonomy and accountability when it came to the stores financials. We have to stand or fall on our own financially,Ž says Mr. Cooper, who is happy to say its all working out well so far, having met its sales targets thanks, in large part, to great support from the community. Both locals and tourists come in to say thanks every day, and we thank them for shopping with us,Ž says Mrs. Blume. Nearing their 80th birthdays, Mr. Cooper and Mrs. Blume „ no doubt drawing from the frenetic, youthful energy of the island theyve chosen to make their home „ dont appear to be slowing down. Theyre both working six days a week (the experi-ence of having Judy Blume sell you a Judy Blume book is quickly becom-BOOKSFrom page 1 COOPER KAPLAN COURTESY PHOTOA large selection of art books is available at Books & Books at the Studios of Key West.

Mrs. Blume recommends Kay Redfield Jamisons new book. The author did an event at the bookstore recently and positively brought the house down, she says. Mr. Cooper, for his part, is diving into Tim OBriens Pulitzer-nominated The Things They Carried,Ž a Viet-nam War memoir-metafiction classic thats now part of many high schools required reading lists. With a fat stack of new releases arriving at the store each week, its a miracle Mrs. Blume and Mr. Cooper can find a minute to breathe. To help their readers keep up, the duo has taken to posting about new releases on the stores website, After growing up in retail (his family owned a camera store) and hating the experience, Mr. Cooper jokes that he swore he would never wind up doing the same. Now that he has, he cant help but bring a bit of unromantic wis-dom to the job. The book business is like running a grocery store,Ž he explains. Youve got your canned goods, staples like Moby Dick, but youve also got fresh produce, the new books that will sell or go back to the publishers in a short time. The work is exhausting and satisfying, agrees Mrs. Blume, who admits she also relishes her newly social work life. I love meeting our customers and chatting with them about what they like to read. After years of lock-ing myself up to write books, its fun for me to be on the other end, selling them. I get out of bed in the morning excited about getting to the store.

YesWhere has this been? Why has it taken four tries and 14 years for a Pirates of the CaribbeanŽ movie to come close to the enthralling success of the 2003 original? Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No TalesŽ isnt just good, its really good. The action is creative, the visual effects are spectacular and the story has elements that are ingenious. Sure its overloaded with plot, but darn if I couldnt stop smiling while watching it. Captain Jack Sparrows (Johnny Depp) big opening action set piece is a doozy. Hes stealing a bank vault, which his men have tied to a rope that stretches through the rear of the build-ing. Sparrow is inside the bank and the local militia is in the front, shooting at him. Sparrows men, in horse-drawn carriages, take off „ but not just with the vault: The entire bank lifts from its foundation and is dragged through the island. Its a creative twist that makes an otherwise inconsequential action scene an absolute blast. More importantly, it sets a tone that the rest of the movie fol-lows: Its preposterous and unrealistic, but its done with a cinematic smile that signals the joy of the PiratesŽ franchise has returned. Most individual story components work well. In revealing how Sparrow became a captain, screenwriter Jeff Nathanson has a few surprises up his sleeve and nicely ties the narrative into the original trilogy. The only problem is the number of plotlines, as things do get convoluted at times. The basics: Henry Turner (Brenton Thwaites), the son of Will and Elizabeth Turner (Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley), seeks the Trident of Poseidon, believ-ing its the only thing that can free his fathers curse to live in the ocean. Henry teams with a horologist named Corina (Kaya Scodelario) and Sparrow to find it. Meanwhile, a Spanish pirate named Salazar (Javier Bardem) wants the Tri-dent so he can kill Sparrow and free him-self and his men from undead purgatory. And finally, Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) gets involved, playing both sides as usual. For the fifth entry of a franchise, the action is brilliantly creative. Among directors Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandbergs highlights: Cannon-hopping during battle, ghost sharks and a jour-ney to the bottom of the ocean. None could be possible without ample visual effects, the most impressive of which involve Salazar and his men. Notice the way Salazars hair, and the tassels on his shoulder, constantly sway as if theyre under water. The time, detail and (no doubt) expense of rendering such an effect is admirable work indeed. The first Pirates,Ž a critical and box office sensation, of course had an excess of novelty that delighted us all. Now Dead Men Tell No TalesŽ reminds us of what a great franchise this could be. For the first time in a long time, theres good reason to look forward to the next PiratesŽ movie. Q dan >> Despite the “Caribbean” of the title, this one was shot in Australia. The fth in the franchise, it is the rst "Pirates" movie to be shot outside the Caribbean. FILM CAPSULESBaywatch ++ (Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Priyanka Chopra) Stern lifeguard leader Mitch (Mr. Johnson) tries to get a new recruit (Mr. Efron) on board with his teamŽ concept as they search for a drug dealer (Mr. Chopra). Its all cheap thrills, which is expected, but none of it is satisfying in any way. Rated R.King Arthur: Legend of the Sword ++ (Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law, Djimon Hounsou) Origin story of how Arthur (Hunnam) came to be king, including get-ting revenge on the man (Law) who killed his parents. The editing is so frenetic, and the rest of it so profoundly average, that this is a letdown for Warner Bros., which would like it to be the first of a six-part franchise. Rated PG-13. Alien: Covenant +++ (Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride) After land-ing on a planet they hope to colonize, members of the Covenant space vessel soon realize there are native aliens who dont want them there. This is much better than PrometheusŽ (2012), as it tells a solid story with clarity and has riveting action. Rated R.Chuck +++ (Liev Schreiber, Naomi Watts, Elizabeth Moss) In the mid-70s, New Jersey boxer Chuck Wepner (Mr. Schreiber) works his way through the ranks to a title shot with Muhammad Ali. Based on the true story that served as S ylvester Stallones inspiration for Rocky,Ž its a pretty cool true story. Rated R. Q

The bowl of tender pappardelle was tossed with a rich sausage ragout and topped with whipped ricotta and fin-ished with a sprinkling of aromatic basil.

One could say it was the perfect way to cap a day. Q „ Scott Simmons La Masseria, the upscale Italian restaurant that opened earlier this year in a space previously occupied by the Gar-den City Caf, takes its inspiration from ancient farmhouses in the south of Italy, where classic dishes have taken advan-tage of the freshest natural ingredients harvested from land and sea. Joining forces to open the eatery are chefs and friends Peppe Iuele, Enzo Rug-giero and Pino Coladonato. The three investors operate two similar restaurants in New York City and one in East Green-wich, Rhode Island. They also have a bakery/caf in New York. The Palm Beach Gardens restaurant was supposed to open last summer, giv-ing the crew some time to prepare for the busy season, said Executive Chef Coladonato. But that didnt happen. It debuted in late January and business has been fantastic from the start. Giovanni Maggio is the chef de cuisine. We just do everything the best we can,Ž Chef Coladonato said. Our prod-ucts are the best you can get.Ž Guests can start by sharing a sampler plate of antipasti or perfectly fried zuc-chini strips. Pasta dishes, like those pre-pared in Italian kitchens for centuries, are designed to transport diners to the old country. All the pastas are all homemade, as are the raviolis. We make our own bread-sticks and focaccia,Ž Chef Coladonato said. Desserts are homemade, as well. Some of La Masserias ingredients are shipped directly from Italy. The plan for La Masseria was inspired by the Puglia region of Southern Italy, where masseria means large farmhouse. The areas homegrown style of cooking stems from the surrounding rich, fertile land and excess of grains and vegetables. La Masseria prides itself on quality reci-pes that use locally sourced produce and fresh meats and seafood, Chef Cola-donato said. I lived in a masseria where my mother was an amazing cook,Ž he said. I learned from her and she had great knowledge in the kitchen. We would go and pick beans and other vegetables for cooking. My father was an agriculture professor.Ž Chef Coladonato moved to the US, in 1991, staying for four years before return-ing to Italy for two. Then he returned to New York and married his wife, who also was born in Italy. They have three children. One of their sons manages La Masseria bakery and caf in New York. La Masserias menu features favorites such as traditional pastas and various meat and seafood entres. Multiple veg-etarian options also are available. Its all good,Ž Chef Coladonato said. Diners wont be disappointed. I think they will find something they remember. We make a good experience. We always do our best.Ž When it comes time for him to dine, Chef Coladonato says theres nothing like a good plate of pasta with a ripe tomato.Buon appetito!

It publishes monthly. Call 561.904.6470 or visit us on the web at Drawing from the past, while looking forwardI love Norman Gitzen. The sculptor always has a kind word and he always pushes the envelope designwise. Following him on Facebook is one of lifes little pleasures, too, if only because of the posts he shares from Casa Capricorn, the idyllic castle he created for himself west of Lake Worth. There, he retreats from the cares of the world and creates his sculp-tures of metal, stone and wood. I remember a decade or so ago when he was at the center of controversy in Wellington over a monumental mermaid. The 10-foot-tall piece, called The Siren,Ž depicted a busty sea lass who was a little too enthusiastic for the tastemakers of Wellington. When I finally met him, Mr. Gitzen was sporting a necktie with a mermaid motif. Someone commented on it and he casually replied, I like mermaids.Ž That was an understatement, of course, and his work goes beyond mer-maids. He also has the wit to dress as a centaur for Halloween and other special events „ he routinely wore the cos-tume to events at Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta and was witty enough to model the metal brassiere he had fashioned for the gallery and art schools ArtyBras event for breast can-cer awareness. As youll see in Amy Woods story, Mr. Git-zen also creates architectural elements and decorative items for anyones castle. And he often draws on local themes, creating sculp-tures inspired by sea turtles, stingrays and other aquatic life. Perhaps Im drawn to his work because theres something decidedly old-fashioned in the notion of hand-forged metal and hand-carved wood and stone. We cant stay mired in the past, but we can draw on it for inspiration. If you read Florida Weekly regularly, you no doubt know I love vintage objects. Theres something so satisfying in using something that has acquired the patina of time as part of a forward-looking design. Its even better when the purchase of those vintage objects helps others. Thats the case with Tree of Life, which sells high-end consignments to support Tree of Life Center, which offers a six-month residential program that provides housing, food, clothing, education and employment for those addicted to drugs or alcohol. Helping others and gaining knowledge from the past are themes upon which we all can draw, whether design-ing a castle or a cottage. Its up to us to find inspiration where we may.

4 LUXE LIVING JUNE 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYDESIGNER Q & A BY AMY WOODSawoods@” oridaweekly.comA community-minded crowd of 30 attended an open house in May at the Tree of Life Designer Store to experi-ence the merchandise and the mission of the high-end accessories, antiques, clothing and dcor purveyor. The merchandise includes everything from a $25 pair of shoes to a $25,000 painting, as well as china, crystal, glass, silver and a wide variety of furniture. The mission entails saving the lives of those with alcohol and drug addictions. The upscale retailŽ outlet, which also operates on consignment, supports the Tree of Life Center through pro-ceeds from sales. That money goes back to the restoration house that provides care and counseling to adults in need of recovery. Its all about the vision and helping the Tree of Life Center,Ž store manager Craig Connington said of the 10,000-square-foot space on Okeechobee Boulevard in West Palm Beach. It helps men and women get their lives back together, and its a good venue for us to network with other people.Ž The location „ in the Tree of Life Plaza „ is owned by Schumacher Auto Group, whose dealership is adjacent to the property. While industrial in appear-ance on the outside, the inside exudes elegance. People are surprised to see what we have here and ask why were not on Palm Beach,Ž Mr. Connington said. The answer is that the space is paid for so every dollar that comes in goes out.Ž The store opened in November as an initiative of the Tree of Life Foundation International, an organization created by philanthropist Amanda Schumacher, the wife of Schumacher Auto Group President Chuck Schumacher. Were a branch on the tree,Ž Mr. Connington said of the foundations 22 project areas, which range from the arts to the environment. When you come in and see what we do and how we do it and what were about, people want to get involved.Ž Here are Mr. Conningtons thoughts on why the store is „ and will continue to be „ a suc-cess story: What sets the Tree of Life Designer Store apart from other resale shops?

FLORIDA WEEKLY JUNE 2017 LUXE LIVING 5 BY AMY WOODSawoods@” oridaweekly.com100-pound gate made from hand-forged steel serves as the Gothic-arched entryway to a bedroom closet-turned-wine cellar. It looks like a dreamcatcher „ the Native American textile festooned with feathers that dangle from a woven net. Striking strap hinges swing open the gate to a sublimely lit space with a five-sided fixture of heart-shaped, amber glass that casts a warm glow on newly installed wood shelving units that can hold up to 40 cases. They wanted it done because they entertain a lot, and they love their wine,Ž said Norman Gitzen, a local artist hired by the owners of the Wellington home to complete the project. Mr. Gitzen, famously known as the creator of a big-breasted bronze known as The Siren,Ž and sought after for his collection of heart-shaped sculptures and line of leather-strung jewelry, is more than a local artist. People know me as the guy who did the boob statue, but they dont know that I could build a house for someone,Ž he said. The 58-year-old Lake Worth resident is a carpenter by trade. My father was a carpenter, so I grew up around tools,Ž Mr. Gitzen said of his Liverpool, N.Y., upbringing. I was always making things, so I just went right into construction.Ž He worked on both commercial real estate and private homes in the upstate area and did the same when he moved to South Florida in 1980. In 1990, bought an acre of land between State Road 7 and Floridas Turnpike, south of Forest Hill Boulevard, and started to build his own home. All I knew is I wanted a turret,Ž Mr. Gitzen said. The foyer of the turret serves as his gallery, and the circular staircase leads to the three-bedroom, two-bath living area that encompasses 1,800 square feet. Old World, mission-style, Mediterranean, Spanish „ those were my influ-ences,Ž Mr. Gitzen said. Barrel tile, stucco „ it definitely has [Addison] Mizner appeal.Ž The front door is a hulking piece of pine that measures four-by-eight feet and has a large, lion-head knocker hang-ing from it. I think a front entryway should be overstated,Ž Mr. Gitzen said. It should be a major focal point of the house because its the first impression people get when they come to visit.Ž The entire home, coined Casa Capricorn, resembles a medieval castle with a modern twist. I dont care what anyone says, bigger is better,Ž Mr. Gitzen said. I like oversized things because they are more impressive.Ž Among his signature architectural works are carved corbels that repre-sent the signs of the zodiac. A pair of goat-like creatures with the tails of a fish „ the astrological animal associ-ated with Capricorn „ decorates the trim above the front door. The intricate ornamentations also appear throughout the interior of his home, as well as the homes of his clients. One such client with a West Palm Beach home asked him to accentuate the faade of her fire-place. He fastened the king of the jungle on either side. I like to make everything personal,Ž Mr. Gitzen said. She was a Leo.Ž Another job, this one for a swimming-pool company, involved making a set of small fountains that looked like elephants shooting water from their upturned trunks. I like to do the custom things that are hard to find,Ž Mr. Gitzen said. I make them from scratch, as per their needs.Ž He designed and built the library at the Museum of Polo and Hall of Fame, and when it expanded, he designed and built the cabinetry. Not my favorite,Ž Mr. Gitzen, a staunch environmentalist, said of build-ing the cabinetry, which requires various paints and stains that are bad for the planet.Ž His clients consist of both homeowners and designers who admire his style: earthy, with an edge. My stuff is definitely earthy,Ž Mr. Gitzen said. I love colorful stone. And nature is my biggest muse.Ž His goal is to target contractors and decorators who need a finishing carpen-ter to do the artsy stuff thats not quite carpentry.Ž I like to do one-of-a-kind,Ž Mr. Gitzen said. To me, that one-of-a-kind means stone and steel and bronze and crystals.

BY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@” oridaweekly.comWhen I want to escape the frenetic bustle of the city, I find tiny Central Florida villages like Micanopy espe-cially appealing. Not much has changed in sleepy hamlet, and thats just the way villagers „ and tourists „ like it. Nestled between Interstate 75 and U.S. 441 in southeastern Alachua Coun-ty, Micanopy (Mick-can-oh-pee) retains the unspoiled quietness folks seeking rest and relaxation crave. The roads are lined with little stores, a small, old wooden church, private homes and ancient oaks dripping with Spanish moss. The place to stay is the Herlong Mansion, a grand Southern mansion with four carved Corinthian columns and a wide veranda „ a popular gathering place for guests who enjoy the view of rose gardens, magnolia trees and Cholokka Boulevard, the towns main street. I call the veranda the reading room,Ž because every time Ive been there, everyone has had a book or Kin-dle in hand. Lumber baron Z.C. Herlong built the house in 1875 during the time Micanopy briefly became a regional transportation hub. In 1910, he enlarged the original two-story farmhouse, turning it into the grand mansion it is today. Herlong has floors inlaid with maple and mahogany, 12-foot ceilings, tiger oak and walnut paneling and 10 fireplaces. The dining room features ceiling-to-floor windows, giving guests a good look at the rose gardens outside while theyre enjoying breakfast. The menu ranges from country ham quiche and grits fritters to apple sausage covered with cornbread. Carolyn Stevens West, who owns the bed-and-breakfast with her husband, Stephen West, says guests seeking a peaceful start to the day can join in one of the daily yoga classes offered at Herlong. Classes are held on the gazebo lawn or in the Long Hall (part of the Herlong campus, which also includes a garden cottage and pump house cot-tage). Its air conditioned in the summer and heated for those cold winter morn-ings,Ž Ms. West says. Massages are avail-able for those looking for some added pampering. Guests often choose to explore the old Micanopy cemetery and check out the shops. The Shop is full of Christmas dcor. Dakota Mercantile sells creams and candles and hand-embroidered items. The Old Florida Caf is a good option for lunch. You can enjoy a Cuban sandwich, chicken wrap or an ice cream cone under an old oak tree. Some nearby dinner options include a pizza shop and an Italian restaurant in Harvest Village. On Saturday evenings, live auctions are held in the garage of a house fea-tured in the Doc HollywoodŽ movie that starred Michael J. Fox. Many visitors like to take a short drive to Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings His-toric State Park. Rawlings old Florida homestead gives visitors a look into life in the 1930s, when Rawlings lived and worked in the tiny hamlet of Cross Creek. She wrote her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The YearlingŽ while liv-ing in Cross Creek. Micanopy is called the town that time forgot,Ž but those who experience its tranquil beauty never will.
