His speech was but one of the highlights of Liberty Weekend, a four-day celebration of the restoration and 100th anniversary of the gift of Lady Liberty to the United States from the people of France. The Frenchman who initiated the famous gift was Edouard de Laboulaye. He imagined Liberty Enlightening the WorldŽ as a public monument evoca-tive of classical images of a powerful, honorable national authority over any ideology ƒ above conservatism, and liberalism and above radical revolu-tions and political turmoil.Ž He hoped Frances gift to the United States would encourage his own people to emulate Americas example. The idea had currency. France contem-plated its own future governance: To king or not to king? America was a role model for government by and for the people. The values embodied in Lady Liberty spoke to the aspirations of both nations. A fortuitous partnership formed between Laboulaye and the French sculptor, Auguste Bartholdi. Both envisioned Liberty Enlightening the WorldŽ as an international symbol rep-resenting the ideals and values upon which America was founded. France commissioned Bartholdi to design the massive sculpture and Gustave Eiffel to build it. It took more than a decade to complete the project. In October 1886, during the administration of Grover Cleveland, the people of France presented Lady Liberty to the people of America, to commemorate the alliance of France and the United States during the American Revolution and to honor Abraham Lincoln for his devotion to democracy. A hundred years later, America celebrated the anniversary of its arrival and the monuments restoration. Lady Libertys torch of freedom blazed anew. Millions of immigrants have arrived from around the world. They have become Americans, too. We are a nation of immigrants. Lady Liberty is far more than an elegant column of copper, iron and gold leaf stationed on a nifty island in New York Harbor. She is America incarnate. The centennial of its arrival on American soil thus prompted a patriot-ic celebration like none other in Ameri-can history. The event pulled out all the stops. It included the largest flotilla of tall ships ever gathered together in a naval revue in modern history; and a firework display of magnitude unprec-edented for its time. Lady Liberty is the nations touchstone to remind us what it means to be an American. President Reagan took up this theme in his remarks. He said we are a nation built on a universal claim to human dignity, on the proposition that every man, woman, and child had a right to a future of freedom.Ž That which divides us from within threatens us all, he said. He told a story to illustrate his point: He described the 1800 presidential campaign between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. It was a bitter bat-tle between opposing factions. Intense partisanship soured a respectful and reasoned discourse concerning the nations future. It was one of the earli-est examples of negative campaigning in America politics. Jefferson emerged the victor. The historic partnership was severed that Adams and Jefferson forged to secure the nations independence and the dam-age done the friendship nearly ended it. Said Reagan, the night before Jeffersons inauguration, Adams slipped away to Boston, disappointed, broken-hearted and bitter.Ž Silence ensued. The estrangement lasted for years. But then,Ž said Reagan, when both had retired, Jefferson at 68 to Monti-cello and Adams at 76 to Quincy, they began through their letters to speak again to each other.Ž Reagan said that the renewed friendship between the two men was their last gift to this nation. What partisan politics had torn asunder was healed by the mutual devotion of Jefferson and Adams to America and to each other, as Americans. Perhaps it was no coincidence that both men passed on the same day within hours of each other, on the Fourth of July, precisely 50 years after having given, as Found-ing Fathers, the nation its Declaration of Independence. Reagan said the reconciliation between the two men held a lesson for us all „ of brotherhood, of tolerance and of the strength we find together in our unity as Americans. He concluded with his own takeaway about the mean-ing of America, having served more than five years as president. He said, ƒthe things that unite us ƒ far outweigh what little divides us. ƒ Tonight, we reaffirm that Jew and Gentile, we are one nation under God; that black and white, we are one nation indivisible; that Republican and Demo-crat, we are all Americans. Tonight, with heart and hand, through whatever trial and travail, we pledge ourselves to each other and to the cause of human freedom, the cause that has given light to this land and hope to the world.Ž Q „ Email Leslie Lilly at llilly@floridaweekly.com and read past blog posts on Tumblr at llilly15.Tumblr.com.

In the interests of world peace, I think its time to bring horses back into the center of the culture. And not just the culture of one place or another „ of Asians, North Afri-cans, Europeans or North Americans „ but the culture of a world now invested in itself, en masse, for better or worse. We need a massive aid program funded by an alliance of first-world nations that breeds and delivers horses to every state, province or territory, every town or village of every nation on the planet. And we need trainers and teachers to introduce every child in every setting not just to computers but to horses „ to their daily care, to their talents and personalities, to their magnificent minds, hearts and bod-ies. Given what weve spent on wars just this young century alone, the cost should be no problem. If we do this for children everywhere, we not only end unemployment „ somebody has to shovel manure, after all; somebody has to grow their food, build their stables, put up their fences, make their tack and learn the science of their care „ but we give humans a freedom too few of us possess nowadays. Heres what I mean. Horses can live 20 to 25 years, sometimes more, and they take a lot of care. In return, they provide a kind of free-dom both personal and human, not merely constitutional, to caretakers. One idea of freedom is contained in the notion of escape „ escape from obligation, duty or discipline. But the other idea of freedom is this: By car-ing deeply for something outside yourself, by devoting yourself to the disciplines and knowledge of an art „ horsemanship, in this case „ you can free yourself from igno-rance, superficiality and a wasted life. When people are free, in this sense, they may be more inclined to peace. And if they arent, they may be too tired to worry about it. Here are a few things to know about horses. For almost 6,000 years, theyve been a continuous part of human culture in Europe and Asia. Surprisingly enough, the North American version of the horse began to disappear about 10,000 years ago, becoming extinct across our big beautiful continent over the next 2,500 years. But the civilizations of Asia, Europe and North Africa developed and used horses in countless ways: to travel, to farm, and to work. To fight each other, to eat, to clothe themselves from time to time, to play and compete in sport. For nearly any great ambition in the world „ the overseas world, as we think of it now „ one of two things was once required: a horse or a boat. Or both. The entire freight of that horseand-boat history arrived back in North America in the holds of Spanish sailing vessels a mere five centuries ago. And that changed everything, here. The Spanish had a hard time in Florida, horses or not. But they managed to wan-der all over the central and western parts of North America from Mexico to Canada losing their horses. Thus they reintroduced them to the continent and to Native Ameri-cans, who caught on so quickly it still defies belief. In the sudden-flash passage of just over two centuries, the Plains Indians adapted their somewhat stationary cultures to the horse, becoming nomadic tribes who fol-lowed the migratory patterns of the buffalo. They could ride better than the Europeans, too, getting more out of the beautifully balanced, natural athlete beneath them in speed and agility by adopting a style the Mongols and the Persians had used. The Indians rode forward, just behind the withers of the animal „ the high point where the back meets the base of the neck. The Europeans, on the other hand, tended to mount their horses with heavy mid-back saddles that put more pressure on the horse, the equivalent of a hiker carrying a backpack slung around the middle of the spine just above the waist, rather than balanced farther up the torso. Those heavy European saddles „ used by the Crusaders „ were the precursors to the later, lighter cowboy or westernŽ saddles so common, still, in North America and Australia. You can stick in them; its harder to come out. But so-called English saddles and cavalry saddles were also adapted by European and American riders, based on what they learned from Asian and North African riders. If all that sounds antiquated and distant in time, it isnt. Think of it this way: There are people still living, a few of them, who came into the world when city streets, like country roads, were filled with horses. When the sounds of internal combustion engines had not yet been heard by most people, or maybe even by anybody. When countless men and women devoted their lives to caring for these remarkable animals. We dont want that world again, the world of horse use, but we want a new one, a world of horse love, if I can describe it that way. When people from childhood are given the freedom of such l ove, they t end to be more peaceful. More responsible. More cer-tain of themselves. Happier. As others have said before me, Ride on, easy rider. Q He’s a Republican Now Donald Trump, the erstwhile Democrat, independent and member of the Reform Party, finally has a fixed parti-san identity.The president may be besieged, unpopular and prone to lashing out self-destruc-tively, but all of this cements his bond to his party rather than erodes it. Commen-tators who ask wishfully and plaintively, When will Republicans dump Trump and save themselves?Ž are missing the point: Trumps weakness makes him more Republican than ever before.It was possible to imagine Trump, with a head of steam after his upset victory in November, cowing swamp-dwelling Republicans and wooing infrastructure-loving, anti-trade Democrats into sup-porting a populist congressional agenda. But this scenario would have required a strong, focused president marshaling his popularity and driving Congress. Weve seen close to the opposite. Whatever Trumps true ideological predilections, theres no place for him to go. Make deals with the Democrats? At this point, Democrats are more likely to cooperate with Sergey Kislyak on an infrastructure package than with Don-ald Trump. Dump or triangulate away from Republicans? Well, then who would do Russian investigation defense, besides a handful of White House aides and out-side media loyalists? Imagine what the Comey or Sessions hearings would have looked like if Republicans had joined Democrats in the pile-on. The need for support on Capitol Hill could well get more urgent if things go badly the next year and a half. If Demo-crats take the House, Trump will rely on Republicans for an impeachment defense and, if it comes to that, for the votes in the Senate to block removal. In one sense, this suits Trump. He may have a questionable partisan pedi-gree, but he is a natural partisan „ smash-mouth, heedless of process and norms, willing to make whatever argu-ment suits him at any particular time. There have been many Republicans who have opposed Chuck Schumer before; it took Trump to call him a clown.Ž As for congressional Republicans, they, too, dont have much choice. What-ever their true feelings about Trump, his fate is their fate. First, a presidents approval rating heavily influences midterm elections, especially the campaign for the House. Republicans dumping Trump wouldnt make him any more popular. Second, such a distancing is not really politically practicable. If Republicans try to skitter away from Trump, their base will roast them. Third, Republicans want to get some things done legislatively. A poisonous split with the White House wouldnt help. Trump may be a mercurial and frustrating partner, but he is a partner all the same. Finally, most Republicans „ quite legitimately „ think the Russian con-troversy is a media-driven travesty. If there were a smoking gun, this posture would probably change (obviously, in that circumstance, it should change). But Democrats are in no position to lecture Republicans on cutting loose a president of their own party when they twisted themselves in knots to defend Bill Clinton after he lied under oath over an affair that violated every feminist principle the party professed to hold. If Trump and Republicans had their druthers, neither would be in quite this position. But this is the reality for every-one. For now, theres no way out, only through, and through it together.

This Hot Topic Luncheon is being held in partnership with HCA Palm Beach Hos-pitals, including JFK Medical Center in Atlantis, JFK Medical Center North Cam-pus in West Palm Beach and Palms West Hospital in Loxahatchee. Speakers are:Q Al Johnson, who currently serves as chief assistant state attorney for the 15th Judicial Circuit, a position he previously held from 2005-2009. He returned to the State Attorneys Office in 2013 after serv-ing three years as executive director of the newly established Palm Beach County Commission on Ethics. As an assistant state attorney for 20 years, Mr. Johnson has prosecuted numerous high profile felony cases. In 2016, Mr. Johnson was asked to lead the State Attorneys Sober Homes Task Force, established by the Florida Legisla-ture, to conduct a study aimed to strength-en investigation and prosecution of crimi-nal and regulatory violations within the substance abuse treatment industry.Q Christine Stapleton, who has been a reporter for The Palm Beach Post since 1986. She has covered a variety of beats, including a decade as the papers court reporter and another as data editor. She distinguished herself in her coverage of award-winning reporting on migrant farm-workers, the 2000 presidential election and the William Kennedy Smith rape trial. Most recently, Ms. Stapletons investigation of corruption in South Floridas drug treatment industry uncovered patient bro-kering, split-fee arrangements, kickbacks and how unscrupulous operators of treat-ment centers, labs, and sober homes bilked insurance companies out of hundreds of millions of dollars for unnecessary „ and sometimes fake-urine drug tests. This event will be held 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Atlantis Country Club, 190 Atlan-tis Blvd., Atlantis. The cost to attend is $25 (before July 12, $35 after that date). Advance registration is required at www.lwvpbc.org or by calling Estelle Friedman at 561-968-4123. Q West Jupiter Community Center announces strategic developmentsThe West Jupiter Community Center has appointed Cary Stamp as its new board president. Mr. Stamp is president of Cary Stamp & Company, an investment management company in Tequesta, who has volunteered at the center for the past five years. He also serves on the board of the American Cancer Society for North-ern Palm Beach County, is an ambassador for the Honda Classic Golf Tournament, and is a member of the 100 Friends of the First Tee of the Palm Beaches. Other West Jupiter Community Center elected officers include Lee Owen (vice president); Nancy Bourne (secre-tary); Phil Danford (treasurer); Ed Frankel (director of capital improvement); and Maria Marino (immediate past president). To enable the center to serve more children in the community, the board hired PJL & Associates to direct the board and staff with strategic planning for longterm sustainability and expansion. Im excited about the new leadership, as their combined experience will afford our center the ability to move forward to reach more families in the northern com-munity,Ž said Executive Director Edna Runner. The Edna W. Runner Tutorial Center provides afterschool, winter break, spring break and summer camp services for chil-dren in grades K-8, with the objective of providing educational support, increasing grade-point average and self-esteem.

PET TALES Canine campers BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationIf you loved going to camp when you were a kid (or even if you didnt), think of how great it could have been if youd had your dog with you. Now, going to camp with your dog can be a dream vacation if you love the great outdoors, dog sports, traditional camp activities like canoeing or swimming, or just spending some down time with your best friend. Dog lovers can find canine-oriented camps across the country, including ones aimed at kids. They go to try out new activities, hone skills their dogs already have or build a dogs confidence. Camp gives you a different way to see how dogs learn and affords your dog the opportunity to try any and every sport of interest to you or them,Ž says dog trainer Bev Blanchard, who started out as a camp-er and now teaches freestyle, agility and canine massage classes at Camp Gone to the Dogs in Vermont. Most dog camps offer a variety of activities, including barn hunt, dock diving, flying disc, herding, lure coursing, rally, tracking and therapy dog training. Others specialize in a single sport, such as agility or nosework. They are ideal for competi-tors who want to improve their skills in a specific activity. The trust, teamwork and focus that was built with my dog in a marathon series of searches „ with lots of breaks for my dog „ could not have been rep-licated anywhere else,Ž says Mary Waka-bayashi of Aliso Viejo, California, who went to nosework camp with her dog Hina. The instructors built on what my regular instructors say and gave another dimen-sion and perspective to being a better teammate for my dog.Ž Hate the idea of organized dog sports? Go swimming, canoeing or hiking, try stand-up paddle boarding, make doggie crafts or just lie under a tree together watching the birds. Some come with their older dogs, and thats what they do,Ž Blanchard says. Here are 10 camps where you and your dog can play to your hearts content: Q The mother of all dog camps is Camp Gone to the Dogs (camp-gone-tothe-dogs.com), which celebrates its 28th anniversary this year. Camps take place in Marlboro, Vermont, or St owe, V ermont. Q Camp Dogwood (campdogwood.com) in Lake Delton, Wisconsin, offers camp experiences in fall, winter and spring. Q Camp Unleashed (campunleashed. com) has sessions in Blue Ridge, Georgia, or the Berkshire Mountains in Becket, Mas-sachusetts. Q Try barks and crafts,Ž learn canine CPR, study dog nutrition or play outdoors at Canine Camp Getaway (caninecamp-getaway.com) in Lake George, New York. Human campers will appreciate the on-site bar/lounge and spa. Q Learn backcountry safety at Canine Wilderness Companion Adventure Camp (citydogcountrydogtraining.com/camps-classes) at Yachats on the central Oregon coast. Skills include trail manners; hiking, camping and kayaking with dogs; and wil-derness first aid. Q Dogs of Course (dogsofcourse.com) offers a three-and-a-half day nosework training camp in Wimberly, Texas, near Austin. Q Camp is for kids, too. The Canine Coach in Minneapolis-St. Paul has a four-day Dog Camp for Kids (thek9coach.com/dog_camp_for_kids.php), geared to ages 5 to 13. Kids and dogs can go together, or if your home is lacking a dog, a trained dog who is familiar with kids will be provided. Q Enjoy a rustic camping experience with nearby hiking and mountain biking trails with Maian Meadows Dog Camp (maianmeadows.com/2.html) at Lake Wenatchee in Washington. Q Six days at Lake Tahoes 33-acre Wild Blue Dog Camp (wildbluedogs.org/home) includes Canine Good Citizen training, water sports, classes in Fear Free dog grooming and more. Q Yellowstone Dog Camp (yellowstonedogsports.com/index.php/summer-camp) in Red Lodge, Montana, offers an indoor arena, hiking trails, ponds for swimming and sheep for herding. Q At camp, you can experience as many or as few activities as you and your dog like.

Not the oldstyle outcasts of high school, but instead, the new age definition where brains are worn as a badge of honor. And this is their car. The BMW i3 is intelligence for the road by offering an electric vehicle thats engi-neered to maximize every last kilowatt. And it does so while boldly standing out from the crowd „ loudly and proudly pro-claiming its nerd-mobile status. Its short stubby nose and blocky build give the i3 a memorable silhouette. BMWs hallmark twin-kidney grille helps create an angry face, but the standard tri-tone color options make the whole package feel a bit livelier. So the total impression is like an electric bulldog on wheels (bet youll never find that kind of comparison on any other car.) The front doors are large enough to look like a coupe, but theres a second set of rear-hinged ones for better access to the back seats. Other cars of the last decade like the Honda Element and Mazda RX-8 have done this, too, but the i3 seems to open larger and wider, which makes it par-ticularly impressive. The extra exposure comes from its revolutionary construction. The frame is made of carbon fiber reinforced plastic. Its a material thats both extremely lightweight and exceptionally strong. BMW left it unpainted in the door jams so the cool nerds can marvel at the metallic-like weave that isnt found in many production vehicles. Once inside, this electric car reminds that its one with nature. The seats are made from a broad thread that looks like its woven on a coun-try loom. The optional leather was tanned with olive leaf extract. The dash and door panels have a fibrous appear-ance that clearly came from recycled plastics. And completing the natural atmosphere is the optional open-pore Eucalyptus Wood flowing over the glovebox and under the infotainment screen. BMW says its one of the most sustainable lumbers available, but really, we just like how it gives the i3 a unique and premium atmosphere. What will really get the nerds happy is the powertrain engineering. It starts with an electric motor making 170 horsepower. Thats the lowest rating currently in the BMWs U.S. lineup. But an electric car offers significantly more torque, and its all instantly available. So where a standard gas-powered car has to build to its peak power, the i3 can be a mini rocket ship in-between stoplights. In fact, this is still held to BMWs standards of engineering exciting cars. The electric motor and batteries are sunken within the backbone frame. It creates a low center of gravity that feels more solid and in control than the i3s tall appearance would suggest. Plus, that strong carbon fiber body chassis gives it a sports car-like strength. Of course, the i3s primary mission is more about economy than performance. The lightweight construction is really for extending battery range. The standard motor is a 60 Amp-hour (Ah) unit that can go 81 miles on a full charge. This year BMW introduced an optional 94 Ah unit that reaches up to 114 miles. And the i3 has programmable driving modes to maximize efficiency. Including two Eco ProŽ settings that are so heavy-handed with regenerative braking that the driver may never need to touch the actual brake pedal in traffic. But for those who cant always get to a charger, theres a better solution. BMW also offers an on-board gasoline generator with a 2.3-gallon tank thats good for 80 miles. Com-bined with the 94 Ah power, not only does it have a total range of 180-200 miles, but also it gives owners an easy way to keep driving if no electric outlet is available. And as a bonus to Floridians, the electric generator really does sound like the faint hum we hear dur-ing post-hurricane nights. This level of practicality could seem like a great electric vehicle for the masses. But theres a price for all its technology. The standard 60 Ah BMW i3 starts at $43,395. Upgrading to the longer-range 94 Ah with gasoline generator is a $49,295 vehicle before adding cool options like the wood interior. There are government incentives that can create close to a ten percent rebate, but the i3 remains an expensive proposition. Still, this advanced engineering and technology are worth the premium to those who know smart is sexy. Nerds love the i3. Q myles KORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

A10 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 6-12, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYgeneration of actors by teaching at the nearby Burt Reynolds Institute for Film and Theatre. He clearly still has work to do. To naysayers, he has one thing to say: I dont listen to them. I know the truth. They said I was going to be gone that week!Ž It never hurts to get the last laugh, as he did after a recent appearance. Here we are tonight sitting in front of these people enjoying each other, talking and laughing,Ž he said. The jokes on them!ŽThis interview, by Carol Saunders, who knew Burt Reynolds in high school, took place in front of Burt Reynolds Master Acting Class, at his Institute for Film and Theatre in North Palm Beach. Also present were Todd Vittum, Mr. Reynolds assistant and executive director of the institute; Avery Sommers, Broadway star, singer and acting class student, and Cooper Getschal, songwriter, band leader and former class member.Q: What does it feel like to be one of only a very few actors to have a major film like Smokey and the BanditŽ be popular enough to return to hundreds of theaters across the country and promoted on air by TCM and AMC 40 years after it was first released? BR: Im very, very flattered and Ive been getting lots of emails from fans and friends to congratulate me over this. Q: Around town, you were billed as the new Marlon Brando. How did you feel about that? BR: Well, I wasnt crazy about it, but I thought if hed been crazy about it I would think its great that he was jealous. Marlon liked to change the dialogue in a film without telling the other actors. I like to improvise, too, but I was on the set one time and the line was, Hand me a glass of beer,Ž and he (Burt started to improvise here by imitating Brando with his face and arms). Hand me ƒ a glass of (holding his arm and hand up like he was reaching for something from Heaven, (taking for-ever)ƒƒƒbeeeer!Ž (This impersonation was on the money and brought laughter because of Burts imitation of Brandos face, mouth and overdone gyrations). He was amazing because you couldnt take your eyes off him. His career was a perfect start with On the Waterfront.Ž He was so pretty and great. Then, as time went by he got lazy and it went downhill. Marlon wasnt interested in changing himself. As actors we are so chained to dialogue and he didnt care about that. He would change the dialogue and not tell the other actors about it. I actually felt sorry or sad that he didnt have people to help him improve like I did. Q: There was one scene he did in Sayonara,Ž that Watson Duncan used to talk to us students about in the acting classes, a death scene with Miiko Taka. Brando did everything with his face and eyes. He didnt say much, but he didnt have to. You have a gift of doing that, too. Your eyes are very expressive. (Laughter when he does a thing with his eyes for the crowd.) I dont think you have to say much. You shouldnt have to. BR: Actors should learn to use their eyes. Its just like being a singer. Just sing. Who were some of the great singers? (He asked the audience.) Answer from audience: Like Willie Nelson or Nat King Cole. He was a great singer who used his eyes and face and he just behaved.Ž (Burt likes to tell his stu-dents to just behave.Ž) They behave with their voice. Nats brother is also a good singer and his daughters. Doug McClure was a best friend to Nat. BR: Hes on the good Sinatra station all the time, Legends Radio. Sinatra was great, but his daughters were just spoiled. Todd (Vittum) and I were talking about that and we wonder what they will do with all his music. They have all the songs and I hope they use them the right way to make a living for themselves. Its a shame you cant just set them down and tell them to use the music correctly. Q: What about Frank Sinatra?BR: I have hundreds of stories about Sinatra that I could talk about but want to be selective. One was about come-dian Shecky Greene. Shecky said to me, Sinatra saved my life. He said, Thats enough.Ž Shecky had borrowed $100,000 and didnt pay it back. They got him in an alley behind the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami (Beach) and were just beating him, terribly scary. Sinatra happened to walk by and said to the men, OK, fel-lows, thats enough.Ž Because Sinatra said it, it saved Sheckys life. I didnt join Sinatra much because I wasnt going to do all the bowing and scraping and stuff. But what a voice! I was asked two or three times to a party that Frank was attending. My sister had a big crush on the actor Sonny Tufts (The Virginian,Ž Government GirlŽ), the sweetest man ever, who was always out in the back yard getting a suntan. The party was at Steve Cochrans house. We drove in and Steve went on and on about how good Sonny looked and without makeup! And Sonny just stood there. Frozen. He couldnt say anything because he spent all his time before that party ƒ Q: Sitting in the sun!BR: But everybody in Hollywood was there. Frank would say Sing!Ž And they would all sing. Didnt matter what they sang, it would always be a capella, and they would sing and sing. Q: Are you writing another book?BR: Im writing my second book now. (It is the third book he has written. The first was My Life,Ž which came out in 1994.) This last one sold out. So Im writing my next one and a lot of women are going to be worried about what I say (he said with an evil grin on his face). (Big applause.) I really loved working with Jon Winokur (who was the co-writer on the book But Enough About Me.Ž). Im going to call this one The Women.Ž Its going to be about the ladies Ive known, that I wouldve liked to have known and women I hope to know! „ I think that says pretty much what to expect! (adding another sinister chuckle). They all know me and that I wont write anything bad about certain people. But othersƒ (That took us to Loni Anderson, Burts second wife, now divorced.) I remember Loni, one night when we were going out to dinner. I said When are we going out to dinner? She said Oh, about 8 oclock. I said, What are you doing? (It was then only about 3 oclock in the afternoon.) She said, Im getting ready. You are getting ready now? And she said, Youll be happy. It will be worth it. It wasnt so worth it for me, because I had to sit around waiting for what felt like six years. When we would go to a party, it would take twice as long. She did know her cos-metics, however. God love her. She did know her weaknesses and her strengths. So I think thats good, I guess. Q: Was Judy Garland at a party? There are stories out there that she would sing all night long. BR: Yes ... and she would sing everything a capella. Everything! I knew her quite well and, oh, my lord, she could sing. She was amazing. Liza was also there and the two of them would sing together. But, the one I liked the best was Lorna (Luft). She was my favorite one of the sisters. She could really sing. Q: You dated her. Have you heard from her lately? BR: No I havent, but Im sure I will when the book comes out! Q: Smokey and the BanditŽ grossed $300 million at the box office when it came out in 1977. Have you heard what it did this time (in the recent release)? BR: It came out the same week as Star Wars,Ž and yes, it did very well this time, too. Q: Didnt you and Sally Field ride around a shopping center looking for SmokeyŽ when it first came out? BR: Sally and I were going to see SmokeyŽ and we drove around the park-ing lot and saw a huge line waiting to get in to what we thought was Star Wars,Ž that came out the same day as Smokey.Ž Funny thing is, when we drove up, they werent waiting to get in to Star Wars.Ž They were lined up for Smokey.Ž Q: Did you have any idea it would be so popular? Did you see the rushes or see it before it went out? BR: No. I thought DeliveranceŽ was a bigg er f ilm. But DeliveranceŽ didnt have what the people wanted. They wanted to have a good time and they wanted to do what other people wanted to do. Q: And drink a can of Coors beer, since the film was about smuggling a tractor trailer full of Coors. BR: People didnt understand „ Coors beer was illegal on this side of the Mis-sissippi River at that time, but not today. Q: The beautiful faux sceneŽ Nespresso commercial running now with you and George Clooney in the Bandit car. What do you think about that? BR: Of all the actors I know, I think George Clooney could play me or be another Bo BanditŽ Darville. I got a very nice, healthy check in the mail, so far. And I wrote them a note saying Im work-ing with my favorite actor, indirectly. And he is. Q: He did tell Yahoo News he would love to work with you some day and that you are his favorite co-star.Ž BR: You have to have a certain outlook on life and acting to pull off playing me, BURTFrom page 1“I have the best job in the world and I can get on a horse and have fun going back to the Old West.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 6-12, 2017 NEWS A11and the only guy I can think of is George Clooney. Hes a great guy. Q: Who are some of your favorite actresses and actors of today? BR: Well, George, Ive already said. And I also like John Travolta, I think he is so talented. Hes a little crazy. He came to my trailer on a set. And he just walked in and said he wanted to borrow my clothes. What I like about him is that he made no sense. What we do here is just have fun, dont act, but behave. And Ive been doing it for 55 years. I have the best job and Ive just been so lucky. I can get on a horse and have fun. I love Mariska Hargitay. I really want to do a Law and Order SVUŽ „ Ive had a crush on her for some time now. The kid from that drummer movie (WhiplashŽ) „ Miles Teller. He seems to really have his head on straight and knows what hes doing and I might be a little partial here, but Ariel Winter really has some great chops. Q: Who are some of your favorite actresses and actors of the past and why? Is Spencer Tracy one of them? BR: You say Spencer Tracy, and I have to agree. He truly was a master „ you never could catch him acting „ he truly became every part he played. And I think Goldie Hawn is very underrated „ she can do it all „ comedy, drama, silly, seri-ous, you name it, shes the best! Q: Hal Needham, who died in 2013 of cancer at 82, was your friend and your director on Smokey.Ž Is he one of your favorite directors? BR: He was my favorite director. Im very sad about his death. He was a stunt-mans director. He was totally fair. Q: Did he ever ask you to do something that you didnt want to do? BR: Never. In fact I used to try to talk him out of doing something I really wanted to do and he would say, Damn it, Burt. You make useless money.Ž Well, thats tough. I want people to think Im doing it (the stunt). I always had the shot that had the camera on me. I would not leave. (Most actors get up and leave so the stunt double can take over and do the stunt.) So I would let them roll over me or try to throw me off the track. Hal would say, what are you doing?Ž I would say „ waiting for you to say action! He would say, Damn it, Burt. Come on! You are taking money away from somebody else.Ž I made sure we did three takes, one for me, one for the stunt man and one for Hal. (Burt now suffers from damaged sciatic nerves in his legs. He walks with a cane.) Q: I just saw 100 RiflesŽ on the Fox Movie network this week, and it was fantastic, all over again. It was with Jim Brown, Raquel Welch and Fer-nando Lamas, and I still cant believe the train was moving and you jumped off, got up and rode a horse down a steep mountain slope. BR: I love that kind of stunt, and always wanted to do that in a film. About halfway down the horse stops and just looks at me, like he is saying Are you crazy?Ž But he went on down. That horse, Destifinado, that was my favorite horse. And I rode him bareback. He and I got along so well, when I left the movie I told the driver, drive up so I can say goodbye to Destifinado. I stuck my head out of the car and he was just trotting along with the car. We were in Spain and I told him I would never forget him, but they wouldnt let me take him home with me. He was a plain white horse and had no tail and no mane and I got some paint and turned him into a pinto. He followed me everywhere and Im walking along in the town and hes following me. Its happen-ing, right in front of your eyes. People think that horses are dumb. They are not. And they love really hard and they love sweetly. And they are busy trying to please everyone and you cant always do that, especially in a movie. SEE BURT, A12 X UNIVERSAL PICTURESBurt Reynolds and Sally Field in “Smokey and the Bandit” in 1977.VICKI L. MILLER / SHUTTERSTOCK IMAGEBurt Reynolds and Loni Anderson arriving at a celebrity event in 1991.FEATUREFLASH PHOTO AGENCYIMAGEBurt Reynolds and girlfriend Pam Seals at the 70th Academy Awards. GAIL V. HAINES / FLORIDA WEEKLYBurt Reynolds with Carol Saunders, high school “fromantics.”The first time I set eyes on BuddyŽ Reynolds I was walking down the hall at Palm Beach High School (now the Dreyfoos School of the Arts) in West Palm Beach. I was a lowly sophomore, he was a senior and the most popular football player on our team. With nobody else in the hall, for some unknown reason I raised my hand in a half wave, mustered as big a smile as I could and all I could think of to say was, Hi!Ž He looked at me with a surprise on his face and said, Hi, Kid,Ž and smiled back. I almost faint-ed. Years later, when I was working at Chan-nel 5 in Palm Beach County, Burt was fast becoming a big tele-vision star and on his way to Hollywood (he had dropped the Buddy nickname by then). He was done with his RiverboatŽ show with Darren McGavin, then Gun-smokeŽ and just was starting Hawk.Ž I was appearing at the Lake Worth Playhouse. I think it was in The Odd Couple,Ž playing one of the Pigeon sis-ters. A friend, Bob Urquhart, was directing with the help of his wife, Jean. Burt dropped in to check it out and help with the directing. Burt and Bob were friends and Burt had come home to visit his folks „ his dad was the police chief of Riviera Beach. At some point when Burt and I were chatting, he said, You know, Kid, I remember you at Palm Beach High School. You were walking down the hall and raised your hand and gave me a great big Hi! You didnt know me at all and you said Hi like you did. Ive never forgotten that.Ž Burt, whos now 81, has a great gift of a fantastic memory „ he remembers every-body he likes, and quite a few he doesnt. We went out together once in a while. It was a fromanceŽ „ friendly romance. Our casual dating usually included dou-ble dating with the Palm Beach Junior College English instructor who discov-ered Burt „ Watson B. Duncan III and his wife, Honey, who, like Burt, was one of Duncans students. Our friendship lasted over the 1960s and 1970s, until he became a really big star. He married and divorced Judy Carne, (an English comedy actress from Laugh In,Ž who died at age 76 in 2015). When we got together, our evenings often ended with having a drink at the Loggia Lounge in Palm Beach and play-ing Charades at the Loggia, or the Alibi or Ta-boo, on Worth Avenue. Many dates with Burt included crowds of people who flocked around us to watch him play Charades, get an autograph or ask him questions about one of his films or TV series. I learned to just sit back and watch. Early on, I could see that the fine actor in him was fast turning into a really big, shining star. I was grateful to have been in on the start of that. One evening, we joined a gathering at Palm Beach High School Coach Bobby Riggs house to view the TV credits Burt designed for HawkŽ and the episodes he had just finished. I loved to listen to his many hilarious and sometimes shocking stories of the people he was meeting in Hollywood. Many years went by before he opened the Burt Reynolds Dinner Theatre in Jupiter „ A miracle at a bus stop,Ž as Charles Nelson Reilly put it. I was lucky enough to meet Loni Anderson and Rita Moreno, who were browsing in the shopping center that was home to the art gallery my husband and I owned (Tequesta Galleries). Loni is possibly one of the most beautiful ladies I have ever met in person; Rita Moreno probably is one of the nicest. Later, I was working for a local newspaper and frequently interviewed the stars appearing there „ Burt among them.„ Carol SaundersThis ‘Kid’ knew ‘Buddy’ before he was ‘Bandit’ 1954 YEARBOOK PHOTOBurt Reynolds played football at Palm Beach High School.

The people that say dont do it, dont understand it. Am I sorry? No. But if you do it, there is something that happens inside. ƒThere are so many things I wish I could do, but I cant.

BR: I might have known youd love it. Youre so sweet. ƒ I did it and it was me. You just love everything I do. Youre prejudiced. Some of the stunt men would get kind of jealous.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 6-12, 2017 NEWS A13 gabrielle FINLEY-HAZLE CEO, St. Marys Medical Center HEALTHY LIVING As the mother of two young, active children Ive learned firsthand that no matter how many precautions parents may take, an accident can happen at any time. When my son was injured during a recent visit to the playground, the highly skilled medical professionals at the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital were able to help treat his injuries and gave my husband and me reassurance that our son was in some of the best hands available. As an active member of our community, Ive been told by many parents the peace of mind they have knowing there is a dedicated childrens hospital right in their backyard. Those one-on-one conversations with community members are part of what motivates our team at the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital to constantly rein-vest in our hospital to better address your childs medical needs. It truly is a privilege to lead an organization that has such a significant impact on not just local families, but also families that come from all over the world for our pediatric specialty programs. That being said, I am excited to announce that we recently unveiled the new pedi-atric medical/surgical unit at the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital. The pediatric nurses and highly trained Child Life Specialists played a large role in the design and planning of this unit thanks to their vast experience working with pediatric patients and extensive knowledge of hospital visits from a childs perspective. This new floor features a dedicated stepdown unit for more specialized care, a large procedure room, family lounge and more spacious, private patient rooms. VIPŽ signature family suites with adja-cent living rooms have been built to help create an intimate, comfortable setting for families as their child heals. To help ease your childs mind during a stay, there is an interactive playroom and each patient room is equipped with a flat-screen TV and an X-Box for the childs enjoyment. In addition, each room on this floor can be referred to as the PearlŽ room, the TurtleŽ room or the WaveŽ room, to name a few, instead of being referred to by room numbers. The pediatric medical/surgical unit was designed to provide a kid-friendly heal-ing environment for the entire family and is just one of the many floors in our 142-bed childrens hospital. Complementing the specialty services provided at our childrens hospital is the Child Life program. Our team of Child Life specialists are develop-mental experts who provide support and advocacy for children and their families during their stay at the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital. These high-ly trained specialists work to normalize the hospital experience by providing daily activities, special events and help-ing children understand and cope with the treatment process. During your childs stay, the team will help them develop new skills, con-quer challenges, build confidence and a sense of mastery. This support may start as early as the pediatric emergency room and continue throughout your childs hospital stay and discharge. At the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital, we offer a variety of inpatient and outpatient pediatric multidisciplinary programs. From our Level I Pediatric Trauma Center and award-winning ER to our pediatric oncology and pediatric surgery programs, our specialists are ready to treat anything from bumps and bruises, to more serious conditions. To learn more about Palm Beach Childrens Hospital, visit www.palmbeachchild-renshospital.com. If youd like to stay up-to-date with future enhancements, services and events at our hospital, as well as fun family activities and health-related informative articles, join our Kids Club by calling 888-412-8141.

On Tuesday, July 11, enjoy a power walk (and a little window-shopping) at The Gardens Mall with Adrienne Gui-nan, a physicians assistant from Jupiter Medical Center. In conjunction with The Gardens Mall Walking Club, the Walk with a DocŽ fitness event combines healthy living with cardio-intensive mall walk-ing. When youre sick or injured, deciding where to go for your care is the last thing you want to worry about. Do you call your doctor, go to the emergency room or visit an urgent care center? Knowing your options can help make these decisions easier. There also will be a seminar about choosing the right place for care at the right time in your life. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. in Nordstrom Court. Light bites will be served. Discussion with Adrienne Gui-nan starts at 9 a.m. Stretching and car-dio intensive mall walking will follow at 9:30 a.m. The number of calories burned when walking depends on the intensity of the walk, as well as the persons weight. According to Harvard Health Publica-tions, a 125-pound person will burn about 120 calories walking 1.5 miles, while a 185-pound person will burn about 170 calories. New members will receive a complimentary Mall Walker Fit Kit from Jupiter Medical Center, which includes a tote bag, water bottle, pedometer and T-shirt. Membership also includes special offers from participating mall retailers, and invitations to health and wellness screenings, events, and lectures. To reserve your spot, contact Erin Devlin by July 10, at edevlin@thegardensmall.com or call 561-622-2115.

A16 BUSINESS WEEK OF JULY 6-12, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYOr is it simply the newfound social media cautionary tale? Make no mistake: There is a connection among all of these communications crises. The reality is that organizations and people have not changed; there has always been corporate dysfunction. While evolv-ing technology has increased the number of brand touchpoints available for instan-taneous distribution of damaging content to millions of people, technology is not the root cause of this dysfunction. The very DNA of an organization is revealed through each and every touch-point. When interactions reveal weak-ness, deeper problems within the organi-zation are exposed. In an interconnected world where companies can fall from grace in hours, it has never been more important for leaders to address the com-mon thread that creates corporate crises: a lack of clarity „ from the very core of the organization. Clarity is what happens when leaders take a holistic view of their strategy, people and story and ensure that there is alignment with each. An outcome of alignment is a sustainable, positive cul-ture with strong leadership. With clarity, employees at every level know how to live out the vision, mission and purpose of the organization and understand the behaviors expected of them every day. This clarity provides the reason for all to come together and serve. It is this DNA that is the soul of an organization and that drives decision-making, profits and improved performance. Finding and leveraging that clarity is the difference between a passenger walk-ing off an airplane and being dragged off. Clarity is the difference between a spokesperson communicating a difficult decision and creating an entirely new cri-sis. And it is the difference between being revered for your role as one of the leading technology disruptors in the world and being reviled for the way you treat your employees and customers. The digital economy has forced leaders to prioritize trust, transparency and authenticity. It is no longer possible to explain our way out of crises or dysfunc-tion. We must understand that the most contrite apology statements and count-less refunds and discounts will not fix crises that reveal systemic dysfunction. Even in companies that have clarity „ of purpose and vision and the roles of those involved in carrying out that purpose and vision „ there are bound to be some bumpy patches along the way. When that happens, go in search of whats right in the operation. When businesses want to improve, they typically focus on whats wrong or whats broken. At the time, it just seems to make sense to address head-on what-ever difficulty has arisen. Instead, try flip-ping that approach on its head and asking: What are we doing right? Find the great nuggets inside the organization that can take it to a different place, a different height. If you under-stand where the company culture is get-ting it right, you can duplicate those prac-tices in the areas where the problems lie. There are many examples of great companies that have successfully over-come public relations crises with open-ness, honesty and empathy. Their names might not be as memorable. Thanks to the clarity within their organizations, their customers forgave them, and in many cases, the connection with those brands actually improved. The key to successfully managing any public relations challenge today is to find organizational clarity before the crisis happens. Have you? Q „ Brad Deutser is the president of Deutser LLC, a consulting firm that advises leaders and organizations about achieving clarity, especially in times of transition, growth or crisis. He is an expert at leveraging culture to drive business performance. Since its launch in 2002, his firm has counseled organizations ranging from the Fortune 100 to numerous nonprofits.CLEARFrom page 14 MONEY & INVESTINGStudies of Seattle’s minimum wage provides ammo to pro, con arguments Generally, people dont get too passionate about economic theory. Most would rather be forced to binge watch the entire season of Cop RockŽ 15 times than discuss inflation, monetary policy or the effect of fiscal stimulus on the economy. However, one economic subject matter that always seems to excite people is the minimum wage law. Ive never met one person who did not feel extremely strongly one way or the other regarding government setting a minimum wage for workers. They either believe that setting a minimum hourly pay is critical for combating a growing income inequality across the country or it is a job-killing anti-capitalistic policy that stymies economic growth. Recently, two groundbreaking studies were published regarding the effect of Seattles significant increase in the citys minimum wage. So what did these studies conclude and what do they explain about the usefulness of government setting pay standards? The two investigations focused on the city of Seattle because the city recently enacted two very large increases in its hourly minimum wage. In 2015, the law mandated an increase from $9.47 to $11 and then it increased again in 2016 to $13 per hour. This is an almost 40 percent increase in pay in only two years for lowincome workers. The first study came from the University of California at Berkeley. The study looked at food service industry workers and found that the increase in wages did not result in fewer jobs and greatly ben-efited low income workers through higher wages. The second study, just released last week by the city of Seattle, finds the exact opposite result. It found that wages did increase, but only by an average of 3 per-cent. This is because it found that very few employees actually made the actual mini-mum wage and so the law only affected a very small subset of workers. Even more startling was that lower wage workers saw their work hours drop by 9 percent. So even with the increase in pay, because they were working less, low-income people actually saw their overall wages drop by $125 per month.So how could these studies reach such different conclusions? The primary difference between the two is the work-ers included/excluded in the respective publications. The UC Berkeley study only looked at food service employees while the Seattle study excluded large corporations such as fast food chains and big box retailers and instead focused on small businesses.So it appears that restaurant workers benefit from higher minimum wages. This is probably because you need a minimum amount of servers, cooks and dishwashers to run an eatery and if costs go up, busi-ness owners can pass the costs on to their customers. On the other hand, small businesses often can replace or automate high-cost workers. Maybe the owner takes on some of the responsibilities or they outsource the function. These small firms often have no ability to raise prices so they either have to live with decreased profitability or cut employee hours. So the Berkeley and Seattle studies give ammunition to both sides of the minimum wage debate. For industries where higher costs can be passed on to customers or workers cannot be outsourced or auto-mated, greater minimum wages are ben-eficial to workers. However, in small busi-nesses or sectors where there is no ability to raise prices, higher minimum wages actually result in lower take-home pay for workers because of fewer hours worked.With 90 percent of countries in the world with some kind of minimum wage laws on the books, clearly putting a floor on earnings is something that is not going away any time soon. That being said, as cities and states increase these minimum earnings, it is important to constantly judge the results of these policies to ensure that they are not hurt-ing the very people they are meant to help.

NEW LISTING/ EVERGRENEUNDER CONTRACT FLORIDA WRITERSA handy, compact guide for the would-be true crimes sleuth Q The New York Crimes, Volume 1: The Fifties & SixtiesŽ by Stephanie Hughes. Stephanie Hughes/Sunshine Sally. 90 pages. Paperback, $7.99. With this title, Fort Myers resident Stephanie Hughes begins a series that will please both true-crime addicts and more restrained fol-lowers of crimes that have become markers of our crime-riddled times. For the most part, Ms. Hughes selects crimes that have already received the attention of authors and filmmakers. Such endeavors have amped up the celebrity of crimes „ even if the crimi-nals or victims were not celebrities to begin with. Ms. Hughes offers a multipart primer to help readers remember and under-stand „ and perhaps further explore „ major New York crimes over two decades. She writes for the armchair sleuth who, if in New York, can visit the crime scenes and other important locations just by Googling the provided addresses. For the rest of us, she pro-vides photographs (many of which she took) not just of the key locations, but in the context of the immediate neigh-borhood. Of course, photos of the vic-tims, criminals, and others important to the case also are provided. Aside from the visuals, Ms. Hughes offers: an overview of the crime story; thumbnail biographies of the key play-ers, including law enforcement officers and witnesses; and complete address-es and histories of the locations that housed or were otherwise connected with the crime. Precise dates and times? Theyre here as well. Eleven chapters, each covering a major New York crime (or possible crime), provide a spectrum of possibili-ties. One examines the fate of Frank Olson, a CIA scientist who became involved as a test subject in experiments with psy-chedelic drugs being conducted at the U.S. Armys Fort Detrick in Maryland. He suffered terrible effects. In Novem-ber 1953, sent by his superiors to a meeting in New Yorks Hotel Statler, he crashed through a 13th floor win-dow to his death on Seventh Avenue. Suicide? Accidental fall brought on by the narcotics? Or a murder to shut him up about what the government was up to? Vicariously, you can find out for yourself. Did bestselling author Norman Mailer get off too easily for the stabbing of his wife at a party in the couples Manhattan condo? Look over the informa-tion Ms. Hughes presents and see what you think. A classic what really happenedŽ case is the March 1964 death of Kitty Genovese. What made this murder so astounding was not the gruesomeness of Winston Moseleys deed, but the claim that 38 or more peo-ple witnessed the murder and did not call the police. Mr. Moseleys life after incarceration is a story in itself. Here are some of the others: The assassination of Malcom X at a political rally; the French Connection drug bust; the 1967 Summer of LoveŽ murder of two flower children beaten to death in Tomkins Square Park; and the shooting of pop artist Andy Warhol. Many readers will appreciate the books design elements, including the intriguing blend of typefaces, the selection and layout of the photographs in the Locations sections and the evoca-tive front cover. Those who want to look further into the cases Ms. Hughes has explored and outlined will appreciate her section on Resources and Additional Reading. The mentoring that Ms. Hughes is doing is likely to inspire many lovers of true crime mysteries to look more closely at the crucial elements of crime detection and to sharpen their own skills of deduction. On top of all this, its just great fun. Later this year, volume two in the series will appear, covering such 1970s crime-related figures as Frank Serpico, Klaus Von Bulow and Donnie Brasco.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 6-12, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY MANGOMANIA TROPICAL FRUIT FAIRJULY 1516, 2017 Join us at our summer festival that celebrates Pine Islands mangoes and other local tropical fruits.MangoManiaFL.net239-283-0888 CHECK OUT THIS SHELLTASTIC SUMMER EVENT. THERE ARE PLENTY OF THINGS TO FIND. These are just the easiest. COLLECTORS CORNER Souvenirs of Mar-a-Lago and one of its first occupantsBefore Burt Reynolds was South Floridas movie star, there was Dina Merrill, daughter of cereals heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post and financier E.F. Hutton. I was honored to know Dina, who died in May at 93. She came of age at Posts Palm Beach estate of Mar-a-lago, now the winter home of President Donald Trump. Unlike other heiresses of her day, Dina wanted to work. She was blond, she was beautiful and she had the determination to forge a stage and film career despite having one very worthy adversary to that career „ her father, who wanted her to become a lawyer. When E.F. H utton spoke, people listened. But not Dina, who took a cue from her mother and forged her own path, beginning an acting career in her early 20s before marrying and raising children. In the 1950s, at an age when most film stars of the day were moving into matronly roles, Dina Merrill was starring in such films as Operation Petticoat,Ž with Cary Grant, and The Young Savages,Ž with Burt Lancaster. By the time I came to know her, in 2012, Dinas acting career was over and she was creating watercolor paintings that were sold to raise money for charity. I interviewed Dina and her husband, Ted Hartley, for a story on an upcoming exhibition of her watercolors at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta. When I walked into her apartment at The Breakers in Palm Beach, a couple of miles north of Mar-a-Lago, she sat there alone, smiled, shook my hand firmly, but said nothing. She had Lewy body dementia, and that day was not one of her better ones. But her blue eyes sparkled and matched the colors of the ocean and the sky beyond. Dina gradually opened up and told me how she and her father had set out from Sea Cloud, the family yacht, in a longboat in the Galapagos Islands to get a tortoise for soup for her mother. They snared a tortoise, but the reptile, named Jumbo, became a pet rather than soup. Jumbo was still alive 80 years later at a park in Hawaii, her husband said. She also lit up when I told her about some linens I had that came from the storerooms at Mar-a-Lago, including some tablecloths from Sea Cloud I later donated to the Historical Society of Palm Beach County. There, curator Debi Murray figured out that those tablecloths had a motif of signal flags that spelled out Davies,Ž Marjorie Merriweather Posts married name at the time. There were other pieces as well, including napkins that bore monograms with the initials of Post and her third husband, Ambassador Joseph Davies, all beautiful, elegant and of the best quality. The same could be said for Dina, who is remembered fondly in Palm Beach „ my friend Elizabeth, who worked at Elizabeth Arden, tells how the masseuses would jockey to work on Dina when she came to the salon simply because she was so nice. I agree, because beauty, class and kindness always endure. Q scott SIMMONS ssimmons@floridaweekly.com Where: The Lords Places Joshua Thrift Store, 7600 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; 561-537-4666 or www.thelordsplace.org. Paid: $3 apiece The Skinny: I had owned a set of these damask napkins that I later donated to the Historical Society of the Palm Beaches. But I was pleasantly surprised to see two of them hanging on a rack at a thrift shop. People like Marjorie Merriweather Post entertained on a grand scale and ordered sets of dinnerware and linens in the dozens. You can see the MŽ and the PŽ of her first and last names entwined with the DŽ of her third husbands last name, Davies. They divorced in the 1950s and many of these pieces went into storage. Donald Trump auctioned off items from the storerooms at Mar-a-Lago in 1995; things that didnt get sold at auction were sold in a garage sale of sorts and staff also were allowed to help themselves. Thats no doubt where these came from. Q THE FIND:A pair of Mar-a-Lago napkins COURTESY PHOTOThat’s me with Dina Mer-rill and her husband, Ted Hartley.

B10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 6-12, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYThe fact that this play was written for Queen Elizabeth I sets it apart from other Shakespeare plays,Ž Mr. Stephens said. But what I was delighted to find was how the women in the play are evolved above the mere pursuit of men. Four hundred years later, Shakespeare is once again cracking open the human experience for us and doing it with his timeless poetry.Ž Originally performed in the late 1590s, the comedy opens with Ferdinand, King of Navarre (Bradley Johnson) declaring a new law forbidding women to come within a mile of the court so that his noble companions „ the Lords Berowne (Stephen Hedger), Dumaine (Kyle Gle-num) and Longaville (Caleb Williams) „ can swear off the fairer sex for three years to focus on their studies. You have all these wealthy one-percenters enjoying the privilege of their class, taking time off and having a sab-batical,Ž Mr. Stephens said. They look at women as a base distraction. This offers Shakespeare the delicious opportunity to say a little something about the ridicu-lous ways that women are viewed and encourages the audience to laugh at the barbaric notion that women are anything but equally qualified peers.Ž The kings new law is immediately put to the test when the Princess of France (Courtney Poston) arrives with her three companions Rosaline (Kelly Hussey), Katherine (Sara Grant) and Maria (Krys Parker) and requests to see Ferdinand. Mixed-up love letters, sparkling dialogue and Shakespeares poetry build to a sur-prise ending Mr. Stephens said is sure to please „ all expertly tied into a plot-line that accentuates the superior inner strength of women. The Princess of France isnt just on vacation, shes on political business,Ž he said. Her father is dying and she needs to be married to assume the throne. What I find fascinating is that was a pressure that Elizabeth I was specifically feeling. Also, its very interesting that Shakespeare wrote this very complex and beautiful character for a woman.Ž Krys Parker, a 20-year PBSF veteran who plays the role of Maria, said Loves Labours LostŽ offers a modern audience universally recognized and appreciated notions of l ove, jealousy, war and physical comedy. This show has a little of all of that,Ž Ms. Parker said. And I think the audi-ence will take from this show what they take from every show we do „ a won-derful evening with your friends, for free, on a beautiful hill in Jupiter enjoying a topnotch, live production of Shake-speare.Ž Mr. Stephens adapted Shakespeares script for this production with the goal of keeping it accessible to contemporary audiences in terms of distilled, compre-hensible content within a manageable running time. No one does this play,Ž he said. Its an early comedy that was written for the nobles. It doesnt have a lot of groundling appeal and since no one does it, we said, Well, lets do it. I watched a lot of film versions of the play, listened to audio books and read different editions of the play that are available. That gave me liberty to decide what aspects of the story support the world were creating, what we like about the story and what themes come to the surface. These criteria dictated how to cut the text to accentuate each aspect and streamline the plot.Ž Mr. Stephens said he hopes audiences will get a fresh slant on the Bard by seeing one of his rarely done plays per-formed well. I hope they walk out of the park and say, Wow, Ive never seen that before!Ž he laughed. What makes the play inter-esting to me, aside from the astonishing amounts of poetry and wordplay, is that as an early comedy it reveals Shake-speares point of view on 16th-century feminist development. Also, aside from exposure to the works of the Bard and something from the classical canon „ instead of Rodgers and Hammerstein „ I hope our audience comes away marvel-ing at Shakespeares sensitivity to female progress, if not feminism itself.Ž Q gerhead Marinelife Center; Loxahatchee River Historical Society; Maltz Jupiter Theatre; Miami City Ballet; Norton Museum of Art; Old School Square Center for the Arts; Palm Beach Dramaworks; Palm Beach Opera; Palm Beach Photographic Centre; Palm Beach State College; Ray-mond F.

BY STEVE BECKER Sidney Lenz used to tell the story of a hand he played in the days of auction bridge. If the bidding seems absurd, it can be explained by remembering that in auction, the bidding structure was far different from what it is today in contract bridge. In those days, a game or slam bonus was awarded whether or not it was bid „ provided the number of tricks a declarer took added up to a game or slam. Lengthy bidding sequences were unusual, and opening with one notrump was a very common practice, regardless of distribu-tion. Lenz (West) led the queen of hearts, disregarding partners spade bid. East, after communing with himself at length, signaled with the ten instead of playing the ace. Declarer heaved a huge sigh of relief, won the heart with the king and cashed six diamonds and six clubs to score a grand slam. East could have turned the result com-pletely around had he played the ace of hearts and caught the king. On the ten-of-hearts return by East, Lenz could overtake with the jack and lead a low heart to Easts seven. Easts queen-of-spades return would then allow Lenz to cash his hearts and return a spade, whereupon East would run his spades and the defenders would score all 13 tricks. You dont often see a hand where a defenders misplay costs his side 26 tricks „ but, for whatever its worth, this is one of them. It is, though, a feat not worthy of emulation. Q

It starts slow, but its fun to watch the story twist and the third act packs a wallop. Rated R. Transformers: The Last Knight ++ (Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Hopkins, Laura Haddock) Once again the Autobots get Mark Wahlbergs help in saving the world from the Decepticons. Its under-standable if youre expecting this fifth installment to be terrible, but its actually pretty amusing. The story is more clever than you expect, and the visual effects and action are strong. Rated PG-13.The Hero ++ (Sam Elliott, Laura Prepon, Nick Offerman) An aging former movie star (Mr. Elliott) tries to reconcile his disap-pointing life after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Mr. Elliotts perfor-mance is stellar, but the story is under-developed and some important charac-ters barely register. Rated R. Cars 3 ++ (Voices of Owen Wilson, Bonnie Hunt, Chris Cooper) Old and nearing retire-ment, Lightning McQueen (Mr. Wilson) undergoes a new training regiment that will help him keep up with younger, faster cars. Much of the story is adult-themed, so it might be a tough sell for kids, but then this is Pixar, which never seems to have trouble selling anything. Rated G. LATEST FILMS‘Despicable Me 3’ ++ Is it worth $10? No After two hugely successful movies and a MinionsŽ spinoff, Universals Illumination Entertainment still found a way to get Despicable Me 3Ž wrong. Obviously the filmmakers couldnt put all the focus on the beloved Minions (we have to wait until Minions 2Ž in 2020 for that), so instead they decided to give Steve Carell more to do. Or per-haps he demanded more to do. Regard-less, having more of Mr Carell translates to more of the same,Ž which is unfortu-nate because the new elements are fairly entertaining. At the start, Gru (Mr. Carell), his significant other Lucy (Kristen Wiig) and a few Minions are trying to stop villain Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker) from stealing a precious diamond. Bratt is a former 80s child star whose hit TV show was yanked from the air when he hit puberty. Poor kid, all he did was grow up. The rejection deeply scarred him, and now he vows revenge on Hollyw ood for suppressing what he believes is his rightful stardom. Accordingly, he wears a purple 80s jumpsuit, sports a mullet, rocks Reebok PumpsŽ and comes with a personal soundtrack of 80s rock classics, includ-ing Michael Jacksons BadŽ and Van Halens Jump.Ž This is a good, creative villain, voiced by South ParksŽ Trey Parker with knowing affection for the 80s. Bratt is also quite clearly designed with parents in mind, while kids giggle at the Min-ions and the child-friendly silliness of the rest of it. Without a doubt, Bratt is one of the films highlights. And yet, directors Eric Guillon, Kyle Balda and Pierre Coffin venture away from Bratt for long stretches to intro-duce Dru (Mr. Carell again), Grus long-lost twin brother who aspires to be a villain. Dru and Gru have different interests but are similar enough that they seem like one and the same, and in doing so everything about their story-line feels redundant. Worse, this sidelines Ms. Wiigs Lucy to essentially a mommyŽ role look-ing after Gru and Lucys three adopted daughters, which is a waste of both Ms. Wiigs talent and what Lucy can bring to the story. Better integration of Ms. Wiig and Mr. Parkers characters, and less of Gru and Dru, would have served the narrative well.Naturally, plenty of time also has to be made for the Minions. Too bad they arent given more to do, as every scene theyre in feels arbitrary and obligatory. At one point they sing on a The VoiceŽ type TV show, and at another theyre in prison running the joint. At no point does their involvement feels essential or register as anything more than cute.Ž That might be enough for youngsters in the audience, but its not enough to heartily contribute to the films overall quality.The animation in Despicable Me 3Ž is fine but unimpressive and, sure, there are a few laughs along the way. If the filmmakers had a better grasp of the narrative and played to its strengths, they could have been on to something here. Instead we walk out with a shoul-der shrug saying, Meh, that was OK,Ž and never think about the movie again. Q dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 6-12, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15 Places indowntown Lake WorthA trio worth noting3SCOTT’STHREE FOR 2 C.W.S. BAR + KITCHEN522 Lucerne Ave., Lake Worth; 318-5637 or www.cwslw.com. C.W.S. is just about always hopping any night of the week. The place has a decent beer list, nice cocktails and an interesting menu, including Mamas Pasta Bowl, with fresh pappardelle, Italian sausage ragu, whipped ricotta. If the cauli-flower steak is on the menu, order it. Its essentially a grilled slice of cauliflower, but is a textural and flavorful treat. 1 PARADISO625 Lucerne Ave., Lake Worth; 547-2500 or paradisolakeworth.com.Paradiso is a go-to spot for special occasions „ especially since entrees can top $48. But when your options include Half Roasted Duckling with Cassis Sauce, you have to pay the price. The restaurant is Italian, but I am partial to the gazpacho „ thick, rich chilled tomato soup that tastes more of Spain than Italy. And the grilled octopus and squid are fork-tender. 3 COUCO PAZZO915 Lake Ave., Lake Worth; 585-0320 or coucopazzo.com. The name of restaurant means Crazy ChefŽ in Italian. But theres nothing crazy in the consistency of the food „ classic Italian pasta and veal dishes, with a few thin-crust pizzas thrown in for measure, and a cioppino thats sure to whet your appetite for seafood on your next visit. I have friends who order the 14-ounce double pork chops each visit. Couco Pazzo, just west of Dixie Highway, is off the beaten track for downtown dining, but it attracts quite a following during season. „ Scott Simmons COURTESY PHOTOParadiso offers elegant fare in an elegant space in downtown Lake Worth.SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYMama’s Pasta Bowl at C.W.S. The Dish: Cilantro Lime Shrimp The Place: Lilos Street Food and Bar, 701 Lake Ave., downtown Lake Worth; 561-518-7880 or www.lilosstreetfoodan-dbar.com. The Price: $4.50 The Details: Theres a lot to be said for small plates in the world of super-size me.Ž Theres even more to be said when those small plates pack super-sized fla-vor. Thats the case with Lilos, which opened this year in downtown Lake Worth with a menu of upscale street food.Ž The shrimp for the tacos are seared until just cooked through, until firm but tender. Theyre served atop crisp iceberg lettuce and chopped tomato and drizzled with a cool cilantro aioli thats not too heavy on the cilantro. Its hot, cold and refreshing. Wash it down with a margarita, then order one of the Spanish-inspired montaditos „ the Angry Delray, with steak, onions and jalapeos, sounds good. Q „ Sc ott Simmons THE DISH: Highlights from local menus SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE VINO It’s all in the glass I confess that I dont need a lesson in how the type of glass affects the taste of wine. My wife Debi and I have been to enough tastings and sipped from dozens of different glasses. Plus, at the Wine Experience a few years ago, Georg Riedel and Maximilian Riedel demon-strated the difference to about 1,500 of us. We tasted a wine out of a plastic cup, then out of several differently-shaped Riedel glasses, and the variation in the aromas and flavors was obvious to everyone in the room. So the glass makes a difference „ and quite often a major one. The Riedel name has been synonymous with fine wine glasses since the 1750s. (By the way, it rhymes with nee-dle.Ž) In 1973, Claus Riedel (the ninth generation of the glassmaking family) introduced the Sommelier Series,Ž the first mouth-blown glasses made to pair wines with a specific bowl shape. He was also the first designer to discover that the bouquet and flavors of a wine were affected by the shape of the bowl. The company conducts extensive research to determine what shapes are best for different wines. Company presi-dent Georg Riedel told me that the pro-cess involves a series of trial and error tastings,Ž something Id very much like to participate in. Working with wine-makers and sommeliers, we tweak the bowl shape and rim diameter to deliver wine in a fashion that best accentuates the properties of the given varietal on the tasters palate,Ž he says. Within each glassware series, there are shapes for the worlds major wine varietals, including bowl shapes for new world and old world wines.Ž Anyone who buys and uses Riedel glasses soon discovers one thing about this companys glassware „ its hilari-ously fragile. My mother-in-law once dropped an ice cube into one of them, and it went all the way through and out the bottom. I told that to Georg. Riedel is known for creating some of the thinnest glasses on the market,Ž he responded. But we make numerous glassware lines that stand up to every-day wear and tear, both for home enjoy-ment and professional hospitality use.Ž Another breakthrough that Riedel is known for is the OŽ series of glasses. These have the correct bowl shape for wine, but are stemless. Weve found them to be excellent for traveling, and theyre dishwasher safe. Mr. Riedel explained the process behind finding the perfect glass shape for wine varietals. My son Maximil-ian and I conduct extensive workshops before a varietal-specific shape can make it to market. We follow the Bau-haus principle: form follows function.Ž But surely, differences in the way individuals experience a wine must play a part? Yes,Ž says Georg Riedel. There is a degree of individuality to each per-sons interpretation of a wine, but most sensory responses are directly affected by the vessel. This doesnt erase per-sonal preference; there are those who simply prefer Pinot Noir to Cabernet Sauvignon. But we firmly believe that each varietal will taste its absolute best when served in a Riedel glass.Ž At our house, we conduct numerous side-by-side tastings. Every night, in fact. Its hard to disagree with Georg. For this weeks recommendations, we sampled from Riedel glasses. Q Marina Cvetic Merlot Terre Aquilane 2010 ($40) … Were big fans of Ital-ian merlot, because they generally make it in a richer, more concentrated style „ like this one. Dark ruby color, smoke, leather, dark cherry and chocolate on the nose, and rich currant and leather notes on the midpalate. Soft mouthfeel with round, pleasant tannins. Great with or without food. WS 91-92. Q Villa Gemma Cerasuolo dAbruzzo Ros 2014 ($13) … This Italian rose is great for summer sipping, with flavors of black cherry, violets and lilac. Light and easy drinking. WW 89. Q „ Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer. He is also creative director of Greenfield Advertising Group. Read him at www.winewhisperer.com. jerry GREENFIELDvino@floridaweekly.com Georg Riedel and his son, Maximilian Riedel, are part of a family that has been making wine glasses since the 1750s.

Keith Carrington, who established Keith Carrington Designs in 2005, has been heralded by homeowners as having a style that embodies eclecticism and elegance and is infused with intelligence. My father was an interior designer, and my mom had great style, so I get it from them,Ž Mr. Carrington said. There is a reason his work has appeared in Architectural Digest and in a book titled Christmas at Designers Homes Across America.Ž My training is totally traditional and so are the people Ive worked for,Ž Mr. Carrington said, referring to famed Milwaukee designer Robert Forrest and Palm Beach standout Scott Snyder, a former member of the AD100, Architectural Digests annual list of top tastemakers. Prior to his employ with Mr. Forrest and Mr. Snyder, he worked for an international firm that designed pal-aces in Jordan and Saudi Arabia. His latest endeavor is to remodel boutique hotels in the Caribbean. I love traveling to see something different,Ž Mr. Carrington said.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com JULY 2017 LUXE LIVING 5 COVER STORY eling his own abode, much to the dis-may of Bailey and Barclay, his Cavalier King Charles spaniels. Im always doing something,Ž Mr. Carrington said, pointing to a ceiling he ripped out and replaced and an exterior wall he built for privacy. He just finished a job at an oceanfront condominium, in which he transformed the lobby from one that looked like it might appear in a hotel to a calming residential setting. I think we did a great job in the end, although it was challenging, to say the least,Ž Mr. Carrington said. He has made it a goal to have his clients be at peace in their domains by striving to reflect their personalities, much like his living room „ a mix of English, French and Italian decor with a modern yet bohemian vibe „ reflects his. One of his favorite quotes is attrib-uted to the extraordinary talent that was Robert Hadley: Decorating is not about making stage sets, its not about making pretty pictures for the magazines, its really about creating a quality of life, a beauty that nourishes the soul.Ž Here are his thoughts on design:Tell us a little bit about your philosophy of design. I liken my work with that of an educator, teaching others how to live gra-ciously. Lets face it, most people have bad taste. I dont, so I like to share it. How has that evolved over the past 12 years? I would say my design philosophy has evolved as I have. I chose to listen to clients instead of speak, to understand instead of demand to be understood, to be patient instead of hurried. As Ive become more authentic, so has my work. Is there any one constant, or signature look,Ž in a Keith Carrington design? Since I started my company, I have always followed the road less traveled. I never want to sell a look.Ž I would rather interpret what a client is attract-ed to and weave my design sensibilities into his or her lifestyle, whether that be modern, traditional or somewhere in between. What is your favorite design trend right now? I avoid trends at all costs.How do you balance your career with your romance for remodeling your own home? Since Im always shopping for my clients, Im on the prowl for unique items. Occasionally, I come across a must-have item for my abode, and bringing a new piece into my fold usually means a repo-sitioning and an edit job. I like to think that I dont have possessions; Im merely a custodian of objects here to enjoy them during their sojourn into my life. What is your favorite place for relaxation? My favorite place is my own back yard, swaying in a crocheted hammock that I picked up in the Keys. Its flung between two palms, and I get to catch the balmy breeze while gazing up at the beauty of nature. Whom do you follow design-wise?I dont follow anyone, but I do admire the work of Robert Couturier and Timothy Corrigan, as well as French designer Phillippe Starck. Phillippes work is clean cutting-edge. I tell any-one who visits South Beach to at least pass through the legendary lobby that he designed for the Delano hotel. Its a spiritual experience. It has that awe factor that I strive for, and it nourishes the soul.

6 LUXE LIVING JULY 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@” oridaweekly.comThis year, to mark the Summer Solstice „ the longest day of the year „ I chose a Florida Keys getaway with the shortest travel distance: Key Largo. Its only a 2-hour, 10-minute drive from West Palm Beach. The islands unob-structed sunset views are among its big-gest attractions. I celebrated the setting sun on the beach at Playa Lago Resort & Spa (www.playalargoresort.com), a Marriott Auto-graph Collection hotel and the first new resort built in Key Largo in 20 years. Its at mile marker 97 on the Florida Bay side of the Overseas Highway on 14 waterfront acres once home to a camp-ground and RV park. Tin roof, large balconies with white railings and the classic eyebrow-style roofline typical of vernacular Key West architecture can be found on the resorts four wings, 10 two-story cottages and a three-bedroom beach house. The lobby sparkles with terrazzo floors, a dramatic spiral staircase to the lower level and cheese hole wall leading to Las Olas ceviche bar. A cen-tral fountain surrounded with lanterns and a circle of hanging chairs made of rope and resembling fish net show the lobbys subtle nautical theme. Guest rooms are large, with high ceilings and wood paneled walls mimicking the wall decking of old clipper ships. Floors are tiled in wood-washed por-celain. Area rugs and accent furniture reflect a neutral color scheme. The resort has several restaurants: Las Olas Ceviche Bar, LaMarea for break-fast, and the al fresco Sol by the Sea, built around an old boathouse on the water. Its walls are covered in reclaimed buoys for a touch of barefoot luxury. All three eateries are very good, but for its seafood menu and Keys ambiance, Sol by the Sea, overlooking a 22-slip marina, cant be beat. The manmade beach has plenty of lounge chairs, hammock pods and kay-aks and paddleboards. I hung out on the beach, splashed in the calm clear waters of Florida Bay and swam in a sparkling zero entry lagoon style pool before stretching out on a lounge chair to soak up the sun. I didnt have time to try out the fitness center, but did take an hour for a reflexology treatment „ much more than a foot massage „ in the resorts Ocean Spa. Absolutely divine! While enjoying dinner at Sol by the Sea, I watched the sun set on the lon-gest day of the year. But it ended all too quickly for me! Top reasons to go to Key Largo Playa Largo is one of my favorite reasons to go to Key Largo. Here are five more: 1. John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park (www.pennekamppark.com). Take a glass-bottom boat tour for a view of the coral reefs and underwater park, home to Christ of the Abyss,Ž a 4,000-pound bronze sculpture of Jesus Christ standing under 25 feet of water. 2. Dolphin Cove. Swim or snorkel with Flippers friends in a natural lagoon at Dolphin Cove (www.dolphinsplus.com). Besides getting up close with dolphins, you can get to know some friendly sea lions, too! 3. Florida Keys Wild Bird Center (www.fkwbc.org). The nonprofit orga-nization rescues, rehabilitates and releases native and migratory wild birds that have been harmed or displaced. Stroll along the Sanctuary boardwalk and see what winged creatures fly in to greet you. 4. Silent World Dive Center (www. silentworld.com). Scuba divers already know this place. It offers daily dive and snorkel trips to the most popular dive sites in the Upper Florida Keys. Drinks are complimentary and night dives are available. 5. The restaurants. In Key Largo, you can go out and reel in your dinner or find some mighty good seafood at local eateries. I recommend Sol by the Sea (www.playalargoresort.com/sol-by-the-sea), a photogenic beach shack at the edge of a pier where motor yachts are docked. Try the blackened grouper and conch fritters, for starters. Other popular island eateries include Bally-hoos (www.ballyhoos restaurant.com) for stone crabs, The Fish House (www.fishhouse.com) and Encore for snapper, mahi-mahi grouper and Florida lobster, and Snappers (www.snapperskeylargo. com) for its (pet-friendly) tiki bar and yummy fish sandwiches.

FLORIDA WEEKLY LUXE LIVING 7RETAIL PROFILEThe Painted Ox brings new life to old furniture, Florida-style BY AMY WOODSawoods@” oridaweekly.comThat its logo looks like a big black bovine festively fashioned into a colorful cabinet gives immediate insight into an imaginative home-furnishings store that lights up the area south of Antique Row. The Painted Ox purveys a plethora of pieces expertly refurbished in-house by a staff of designers, seamstresses and upholsterers, as well as professional lac-querers and painters who can turn some-thing like a rusty wrought-iron patio table into an ornate work of art that looks gorgeous in the garden „ and is reason-ably priced. I know how to buy,Ž owner Lili Batista said, pointing to an impressive inventory cozily arranged in the 6,000-square-foot showroom. And I like to pass the savings on to my customers.Ž Ms. Batista also likes to pass her passion for vintage dcor on to her custom-ers through a series of new classes that will teach them how to paint old furni-ture „ her vision when she opened the business five years ago. I wanted to paint old furniture,Ž she said. Thats where the logo came from.Ž Why an ox instead of another animal?We dont know where the ox came from,Ž Ms. Batista laughed. It just popped into our heads.Ž The cheery, well-lit space on South Dixie Highway is filled with such funky finds as an orange-and-pink velour love seat, a faux fur hassock with a match-ing lampshade and a pair of Hollywood Regency chairs with button tufting. Throw pillows abound in fun fabrics depicting crabs, eels, octopi and other sea creatures. We make pillows here like crazy,Ž Ms. Batista said. They are just great accents.Ž Other eye-catching items include a nightstand in glossy green, a childrens chest in a carnation hue and a dinette set in a blush tone. Blush is the trend, it seems,Ž Ms. Batista said. Everybody wants blush.Ž The dusty shade associated with a dancers first pair of ballet slippers appears throughout the store on every-thing from a side cabinet to a picture frame to a sofa cushion. When customers come in, they always say, I feel so happy when Im here,Ž Ms. Batista said. Ive had people stay for two to three hours.Ž They travel from all over the county to shop the stores selections or bring in their own belongings to receive The Painted Ox touch. Older furniture is so much prettier than new stuff and so much better quali-ty,Ž Ms. Batista said. Its got good bones.Ž She sources most of her stuff from estate sales in Palm Beach and sells it to homeowners who want a fresh Florida flair under their roofs. When they see the store, they see what my taste is „ bright and beautiful,Ž Ms. Batista said. I dont have anything brown in here.Ž The 63-year-old West Palm Beach resident said she always wanted to be an interior designer. As a young girl, she constantly cleaned the house, moved the furniture and decorated the walls. As a teenager, she redecorated her bedroom with red shag carpeting and black starry ceilings. She attended Palm Beach Junior College (now Palm Beach State College) and studied art and photography but never graduated. I had too much fear to follow my dream,Ž Ms. Batista said. Fear that I was not good enough, fear that I had no schooling, fear that I was not licensed.Ž So when the opportunity to own a Natures Way Caf franchise presented itself, she took it. That was in 1988. She and her husband now own the company. But nearly 30 years later, she is doing what she loves.The days go by like that,Ž Ms. Batista said, snapping her fingers. Thats when you know youve found your pas-sion. Natures Way Caf was hard work. Thats when you know you havent found your passion.Ž Q COURTESY PHOTOS
