As owner of The Gardens Funeral Home and Cemetery in Boca Raton, Mr. Jacobs comes into contact with people who have died every day. But in last five years hes noticed a troubling trend. My cemetery used to see 3-5 deaths of young people a year,Ž he said, now were seeing that per month and its only getting worse.Ž The opioid epidemic is a major culprit, he said, but not just that.

Mr. Jacobs, who lives in Lake Worth, is launching a program to start a dialogue with teens about the fragility of life and the importance of making good decisions so they have a chance to live a long, full life before the end up in a cemetery. To that end, Mr. Jacobs invited a handful of teens to his cemetery last month to walk the grounds, learn the stories of some of the folks interred at The Gardens Cem-etery, especially some of those who died as children or teenagers. I thought if we could get out there and try to explain and walk around the cemHIGH SEASONSea turtles are streaming ashore to nest in record numbers LE S LIE LILLY A2 O PINI O N A4 PETS A 6 BU SI NE SS A1 4 MONEY & INVESTING A1 6 REAL E S TATE A1 7 BEHIND THE WHEEL A1 8 AR TS B1 COLLECT E VENT S B P UZZLES CU IS INE D o w ou r F App A v ai la t he iTu A ndro P R S RT S TD U S P OS TA G E PAI D FORT MYERS F L PERMIT N O 71 5 www.FloridaWeekl y .com V o l VII, N o. 38  FREE N e w s Retailer s a rrivin g A Butc h Drama w Todd ’ B S o l o Histori c reopen i B e h in Goin g R o A 1 8 X a t per mont h an d its on l y g ettin g p ioid e p idemic is a major cula id, but not just that.

Its topic was the origins of the Earth, life and humanity. Two men took to the stage: Ken Ham, the founder of the Young Earth Creation-istŽ ministry in northern Kentucky, also home to his Creation Museum and theme park; and Bill Nye, the science educator and popular television per-sonality, best known by his fans for his half-hour science series, Bill Nye, the Science Guy.Ž Nyes live action science programsŽ were broadcast for almost two decades on PBS and syndicated to local stations. Think of Nye as the progeny of Mr. Wizard, of Watch Mr. Wizard.Ž The popular program taught science to kids on television in the 50s and 60s. His audience numbered in the millions and Mr. Wizard science clubs proliferated in the thousands nationwide. Like Mr. Wizards programs, Nyes science series effectively taught science to kids. His program earned critical acclaim and 23 Emmy nominations. Nye is a frequent lecturer and often laments to his audiences that science deniers undermine science education in the classroom and impede scientific advancements. Think about the conse-quences of believing or not believing in climate change science, and hes got a compelling point. Surveys report some 40 percent of Americans say they disbelieve fact-based science. Its worrisome, says Nye, because the alternative pseudosci-enceŽ promoted by religious fundamen-talists is just plain wrong.Ž He cites the overwhelming evidence supporting a fact-based explanation of how the Earth and life evolved. He uses the sciences to debunk creation-ism and intelligent design as alterna-tive facts.Ž Nye says it is imperative to pro-tect the academic rigor of science education taught in public schools. But religious fundamentalists arent having it. And the sci-ence deniers who wear their skep-ticism to earn political points are the worst of all. They cynically and shame-lessly exploit science denial for their own callow purposes. Nyes comments caught Hams attention. As a religious fundamentalist, his thinking is profoundly oppositional to that of Nye. His creationist ministry is based on a strict, literal interpreta-tion of the Bibles Book of Genesis; i.e., God created the Earth in six, 24-hour days, making it about 6,000 years old. Humans appeared fully formed, just as they are today, absent any close encounters of an ancestral kind. Thus, evolution plays no part in the origins of humans; nor does their full-blown presence on the planet neces-sitate its accomplishment over a vast swath of geologic time. Nyes counters to Hams assertions are the product of fact-finding, evidence and scientific consensus. It sets the age of the Earth at about 4.5 billion years and some 60 million years sep-arate the time of man from the time of dinosaurs. The debate between Ham and Nye did not change the mind of either. The controversy over evolution continues, now embroiling the science of climate change as collateral damage. Hams insistence that the laws of nature didnt apply 4,400 years ago, or 6,000 years ago, were extraordinary and unsettling...Ž Nye said. He said the efforts to promulgate the teaching of YEC and creationism in public schools would erode Americas scientific lead-ership in the world and undermine the role of science in advancing Americas well-being. If the nation rejects fact-based science, we are not going to move forward.Ž Though the Supreme Court has barred teaching creationism in public schools, by the mid 90s, intelligent designŽ took up the flag and promotes creationist ideas through other means. The anti-science movement is aided by opportunistic politicians who feign righteousness in defense of their cause. Recently Gov. Rick Scott signed into law HB 989. The Legislature approved the bill by a two-vote margin in the Senate. The new law allows any Florida resident (not just parents of school children) to object to the use of specific instructional materials in the public schools if they fail to provide a non-inflammatory, objective and balanced viewpoint on issues.Ž The National Center for Science Education said, uh ohŽ to that. It warned educators and citizens that religious fun-damentalists would leverage the mean-ing of a balanced viewpointŽ to chal-lenge the teaching of evolution and cli-mate change science in public schools. The law opens the door to intelligent designŽ and Young Earth CreationismŽ being taught on par with fact-based sci-ence in Floridas public schools. But it isnt science the fundamentalists want taught. It is science fiction. Q „ Email Leslie Lilly at and read past blog posts on Tumblr at

The critics suggest Mr. Trumps speech in Poland and his sit-down visit with Vlad-imir Putin at the G-20-plus-Ivanka Summit amounted to a big fat giveaway: He surren-dered more than 70 years of the American strategy championed by Democrats and Republicans alike to the anti-democratic world view of Putin. Mr. Putin went home a winner, they say.Lets consider that notion. Donald went easy on Vladimir, yes. But is that any rea-son to think he gave anything away? This is no more worrisome than thinking Neville Chamberlains soft-glove treat-ment of Adolf Hitler was a precursor to war and loss in 1937 and 38, a mere 80 years ago. Remember that?Unfortunately the British prime minister ended up giving away the Sudeten-land in Czechoslovakia to Hitler because the Fuhrer reassured him thats all he really wanted: It should have been Ger-man anyway, he was a really nice guy, and Europe would be better off without war, living instead as one big happy fam-ily, Adolf said.He smiled, wiped the cream off his mustache with a linen napkin, thanked Mr. Chamberlain, and promptly swallowed Poland in a single gulp, finishing his hors doeuvres plate before getting down to the main meal. Trump no doubt knows all that. As long as we know our history, we will know how to build our future,Ž he intoned in his elo-quent address in Warsaw. Looking to our future, however, Mr. Trump ignored the big bite the Russians have just taken out of the American demo-cratic process. Instead, he discussed forming an impenetrable cyber security unitŽ togeth-er with Mr. Putin, tweeting Sunday that the Russian leader vehemently deniedŽ attacking and manipulating the 2016 Amer-ican elections. Putins denial was good enough for the president. He took the word of the former KGB agent and shook hands. Mr. Putin smiled, thanked him, agreed to quit bombing women and children in Syria this week, and wiped the cream off his lip with a linen napkin. Some of Mr. Trumps fellow Republicans didnt get the word, it seems. Sen. Marco Rubio tweeted the following response: Partnering with Putin on a Cyber Secu-rity Unit is akin to partnering with (Syr-ian dictator Bashar) Assad on a Chemical Weapons Unit.Ž Dont worry, Sen. Rubio, the Donald has got this „ which is why hes encouraging Mr. Putin to play nice and help stop an assault on our civilization.Ž The term seems to mean anybody who isnt Muslim, in Mr. Trumps mind „ even those who kill their political enemies along with reporters they dont like, rather than staging fake wrestling matches with them. So lets step back for a moment and consider two ideas: One, our civilizationŽ traditionally has used religion, authoritar-ian righteousness and expansion as rea-sons to abuse, enslave and kill countless human beings from Europe and Asia to the Americas. Thats not a lefty position, its just a historic fact. And two, Donald Trump grew up in moneyed New York. Such people are not rubes. They know which fork to use in high-etiquette settings. They know which wine goes with which course, either at Le Bernardin on Seventh Avenue, or in the state dining room at the White House. They can also drive a hard bargain. Since Americans did not drive a hard bargain last week clearly Donald Trump wasnt there, either speaking in Warsaw or visiting with Putin in Hamburg. But somebody was, somebody who looked like Mr. Trump. Its increasingly evident the president has hired and trained two doubles, each pasty, each orange, and each capable of jowly pou ts. Men scrounged up from the long lunch-hour darkness of strip clubs in Cleveland or somewhere equally anony-mous „ St. Louis, Kansas City, the butt end of Denver, east L.A. They take turns traveling for him, they meet with foreign leaders for him, they cant figure out how to shake hands „ or not to „ for him, and they fail to recognize the presidential limousine parked at the bottom of Air Force Ones steps when they return home to Andrews Air Force Base, for him. They have to be told to get in the damn car, instead of walking past it with an idiot vacancy that suggests advanced dementia. A reporter filmed such a scene last week, but it was a brilliant tactical move on Mr. Trumps part, like Muhammad Ali flashing that long left in a phantom jab back, then delivering a devastating right cross while dancing away. His enemies will underestimate him. How he plans to follow up the jab is anybodys guess, of course „ thats strategy, not tactics. And its not his strength. The presidents team was extraordinarily well prepared this time around. For the first time, the language his double used in Warsaw suggested a Churchillian awareness of the stakes, a blood-sweat-and-tears sense of climactic events „ an awarenes s utterly absent in any of the presidents earlier actions or words, not to mention in his grab-ass life.The fundamental question of our time is whether the West has the will to survive,Ž he thundered from the hilltop of history. Do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost? Do we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders? Do we have the desire and the courage to preserve our civiliza-tion in the face of those who would subvert and destroy it?Ž There are two other questions, as well: Exactly what part of our civilization are we preserving? And who, exactly, are those who would subvert and destroy it? Q The neglected ReaganDoes anyone really know Ronald Reagan?In his new book The Working Class Republican,Ž a bracingly revisionist account of the 40th president, Henry Olsen answers no.Ž One of the most astute political ana-lysts at work today and a fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, Olsen argues that Reagans politics bear the distinctive stamp of his origins as a New Deal Democrat. Olsens interpretation of what he calls Reagans New Deal conservatismŽ is open to dispute. But he undoubtedly is correct that contemporary conservative politicians do Reagan „ and themselves „ a disser-vice by remembering him as an unremitting ideologue and tactical maximalist. As late as 1980, Reagan had still been a Democrat longer than he had been a Republican. As he put it, characteristically, in his 1984 acceptance speech, Did I leave the Democratic Party, or did the leadership of that party leave not just me but millions of patriotic Democrats who believed in the principles and philosophy of that platform?Ž With an eye to these sorts of voters throughout his career and with a sensibil-ity attuned to their concerns, Reagan didnt simply replicate the let-it-all-hang-out, high-octane conservatism of Barry Goldwater. He never contested the idea that there should be a safety net. In his famous speech promoting Goldwaters candidacy in 1964, Reagan stipulated, Were for a provision that destitution should not follow unem-ployment by reason of old age, and to that end we have accepted Social Security as a step toward meeting the problem.Ž That said, Reagan was hardly a friend of the welfare state. His 1964 speech attacked farm programs, government planning, wel-fare, the size and power of bureaucracy, and regulations that have cost us many of our constitutional safeguards.Ž He extolled the common man, the forgotten American,Ž and his innate dignity. In his first inaugural address, Reagan hailed the men and women who raise our food, patrol our streets, man our mines and fac-tories, teach our children, keep our homes, and heal us when were sick „ profession-als, industrialists, shopkeepers, clerks, cab-bies, and truck drivers.Ž He didnt support tax cuts for the rich so much as tax cuts for everyone, and didnt obsess over entrepreneurship. He had a pragmatic cast. In his campaign for governor of California, he noted that public officials are elected primarily for one purpose „ to solve public problems.Ž Hostile to taxes, he nevertheless raised them as governor of California in response to a budget crisis, and as president as part of a Social Security deal. A free trader, he brushed back the Japanese on trade. Reagans tone and program, coupled with his generational talent as a politician, allowed him to unlock the working-class vote in his races for governor and president. The Reagan DemocratŽ has been part of our political vocabulary ever since. It is telling how President Donald Trump „ not having learned the purported lessons of Reagan „ was able to go and get these voters in a way that Republican politicians bound by Reaganite truisms were not. Reagan was a constitutional conservative, although an exceptionally gifted one who understood how to meet Americans where they live. In this important book, Henry Olsen reminds us how.

And, unfortunately, her mother lives 40 minutes away. Mom, youd better call 911. Ill get dressed and meet you at the hospital.Ž Sharons husband was out of town on business. Her brother, Jeff, lives in Boston; her sister Nancy lives in L.A. So, once again, it would be up to Sharon to run when theres an emergency. As she sped down the turnpike, the fear took over. She adored her mother and refused to entertain the worst-case scenario. Sharon spent the night in the emergency room. First thing in the morning, she called her office to cancel the days meetings. She next called Jeff and then Nancy to report that their mother had been admitted to the hospital for observation. Although they asked all the right questions and seemed appropriately concerned, Sharon found herself getting more and more irritated. She m uttered to herself: How convenient! You get to call for an update. I have to find a way to take care of Mom AND manage to keep my job!Ž Sha-ron didnt think of herself as a particularly negative or bitter person. Why was she feeling so resentful? It was only when the situation stabilized and her mother was back home that Sharon was able to sort out her feelings. There wasnt anything she wouldnt do for her mother, but it galled her that her siblings seemed to expect that she would drop everything whenever a problem came up. What she found most distressing was not being able to predict when the calls would come. A planner by nature, Sharon would be thrown off-kilter when she had to shift gears to handle her mothers emergencies. It bothered her that her siblings either had no idea (or didnt choose to consider) that she found it all overwhelming. What we often discover in extendedfamily emergencies is that one person usu-ally ends up shouldering the lions share of the demands. Even if the entire family lives in close proximity, we often find that one usually steps up to the plate to assume responsibilities, while another may find convenientŽ reasons to step aside. There are many South Floridians who are placed in this unelectedŽ position of becoming the family members who live the closest to aged relatives and are there-fore the ones inevitably called upon to handle all the problems. Whether they have agreed to shoulder this responsibil-ity or not, they are often faced with the expectation by others that they will be the ones on call. To be fair, many out-of-state relatives are well intended, and sincerely wish to offer support. Sometimes, though, their efforts are inadequate or misunderstood. They may truly not know what to say or do to be of help. During emergencies, charged emotions and exhaustion may wreak havoc on civilized discussions. Caregivers may not always put into words how overwhelmed they are nor will they know how to specifi-cally spell out what they need. They may not have the strength to be gracious when they receive a well-intended phone call from a relative because the conversation feels like one more chore on the to-do list. Obviously, clear communication, directness and consideration should make a big difference. However, lifelong hurts, jeal-ousies and resentments among relatives may come storming back with a vengeance if the parties do not pay close attention and take steps to head off hard feelings. Acknowledging each others efforts is usu-ally greatly appreciated.In Sharons case, she discovered that her siblings would actually agree to assume some of the responsibilities; but not until she was quite specific and spelled out what she needed them to do. Nancy in L.A. could make doctor appointments for their mother by phone, just as easily as Sharon could in Florida. Jeff was put in charge of arranging for the medical supply deliveries and scheduling the aides. At first she was resentful that they hadnt figured out on their own that there were indeed ways they could help long distance. It wasnt that Sharon wanted to undermine or create conflict with her siblings. It was, in fact, important to her that she maintain close ties. However, their willingness to take this on once she asked ultimately made a huge difference. She was especially gratified when they took the time to thank her for all of her efforts. Adult children play a crucial role in helping aging parents. The emotional and physical demands are such that it takes a concerted effort on everyones part to work collaboratively and supportively to provide the necessary care.

These little predators who live in our homes are hardwired to remain hidden, and living a soft indoor life doesnt dull their instincts. Trying to find a lost cat can be like search-ing for a specific grain of sand on the beach. The first rule of success is knowing how to look. Cheryl M. Melton of Sal-lisaw, Okla., vice president and west-ern area director for Forever Friends Humane Society, became an accidental expert in 2013 after a family adopted a cat from her rescue group. The same night they took him home, he slipped out the door and disappeared.I was determined to find Thomas,Ž she says. This was the jumping-off point for me in finding lost cats.Ž Thomas was finally recovered. Since then, Melton has helped owners find other missing meowsers. Even though you cant see them, lostŽ cats typically stick close to home. They may take refuge in bushes or a shed and hunker down for about 24 hours. They use their senses to gather information and wont move until they feel safe. Then they will begin to search for food, water, shelter and, sometimes, other cats. If you have a neighbor who is known for feeding cats, check with her first, Melton advises. I have found that cats do not usually go further than 200 yards from the point of exit,Ž she says. They dont go in a straight line, and they dont stick to roads like dogs do. They tend to sl owly work their way around, and it seems like they always work their way for-ward. The cats I have found have been very close to home, not more than a half mile at most.Ž Look for your cat at dawn or dusk. Cats are crepuscular, meaning those are the times of day they are most active. They like to hunt when its still cool or when its dark out. Put up flyers. They are the No. 1 way pets are returned to owners, Melton says. Put a large color photo of your cat on the flyer, topped with the words Missing!Ž and Reward!Ž At the bottom, add other details, including contact information. Post flyers on street corners up to a half-mile from your home. Place them at eye level so the driver of a car can see them. Put one on your door for your mailman to see, and make sure fly-ers are distributed to neighbors, pet stores, feed stores, shelters and online,Ž Melton says. Because at the time she didnt know how to look, it took Melton a month to track down Thomas. Once I learned more about staying close to the point of exit, that made all the difference, and we got him within the week,Ž she says. One thing Melton learned from the search for Thomas was that no matter how loving and friendly a cat is, being lost is a scary situation for him. Even though your cat knows you, he may be too afraid to come when you call. Be prepared to set and monitor a humane trap once you locate your cat. Dont give up hope,Ž Melton says. Your kitty could be found in a day or a month or a year. It all depends on the area, the depth of the search and, of course, the cat.Ž Q Pets of the Week>> Hank is a 58-pound, 1-year-old male mixed breed dog that wants to connect with a human family.>> Mocha is a 3-yearold female cat that is well behaved.

That may be the result of nearly four decades of conservation work that includes protecting and monitoring nests and the use of fishing nets that have turtle excluder devices. Last year, a total of 70,000 nests was surveyed from the Panhandle to the Keys, and 25,000 of them were between Tequesta and the Palm Beach-Martin County line. This year looks to be as fruitful for the fabled fauna. I would expect easily that we would probably double our loggerhead num-bers from what we have now,Ž Mr. Rusenko said. As for the greens, were still counting on them to go up to the 400s.Ž The Gumbo Limbo Nature Center monitors five miles of coastline every morning at sunrise. A team of special-ists starts out by spotting turtle tracks in the sand „ particular patterns denote the species „ and then follow the tracks to determine whether a nest resulted or a false crawl occurred. All of the data is entered into handheld GPS trackers for analysis by the center and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-mission. Everythings been good, except for the leatherbacks,Ž Mr. Rusenko said. Leatherbacks, the largest of the three types of turtles at 2,000-plus pounds, nest in lower numbers because fewer of them are in existence. They remain on the endangered list. Loggerheads dominate the season every year but still are on the threatened list. Greens have cyclical habits „ one year, their numbers are low and the next year, they explode. We think were going to get hammered this year,Ž Mr. Rusenko said of the greens, whose growth has been a trend since the mid-90s. The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service recently changed the status of the greens to threatened, from endangered. Some of us think it might be a little premature,Ž Mr. Rusenko said. Their nesting numbers are going up exponen-tially, so it looks good on paper, but then again, its only been 20 years. Is 20 years long enough to decide, long term, what the population is going to do? Biologists tend to be a little on the conservative side when it comes to animals.Ž Greens are on the rise at John D. MacArthur Beach State Park in North Palm Beach, where the most recent count of 520-plus nests exceeds the 2016 total of 169, with four months to go. It definitely looks like we are having a great year for the greens,Ž park-servic-es specialist Chandler Keenan said. Ms. Keenan, accompanied by a park ranger and trained volunteers, has patrolled 1.6 miles of beach daily begin-ning March 1 and will do so until Oct. 31, the length of the season. Every 20th nest is marked. The ones marked are for excavation to learn the productivity of the nest,Ž Ms. Keenan said. The parks Citizen Science program heads the excavation process that entails digging up nests after hatchouts to count the eggs that hatched, those that did not and babies that pipped, meaning they made it halfway out of the egg. All of the work we are doing here is having a very, very real-world impact on how we plan to protect turtles in the future,Ž Ms. Keenan said. The FWC uses our information to create manage-ment plans, conservation plans, land-acquisition plans, etc., to help recover their global population.Ž Citizen Scientists excavated 81 nests in 2016, concluding that 2,340 hatchlings emerged toward the ocean. Its a cool thing to be able to say that this many more sea turtles are in the world, and they originated right here at MacArthur Beach,Ž Ms. Keenan said. At the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, staff members, seasonal employees and student interns share the responsibility of surveying a 9-mile strand for new activity from the previ-ous night. The job can take up to eight hours. It can be a long day,Ž field-operations manager Adrienne McCracken said. But its such a neat job. I love the unpredictableness of it. You dont really know what is going to happen on any given day.Ž One morning, their ATV came across a lumbering loggerhead trapped in a hole left by a beachgoer. The female weighed between 200 and 300 pounds, requiring several pairs of hands to lift it for a safe return to sea. If you see holes in the sand, fill them in,Ž Ms. McCracken said. Chairs never should be left ashore overnight because they can trap turtles, as well. Ive seen turtles get stuck under all kinds of things „ chairs, walkovers, steps, rocks „ they get wedged into them „ so that definitely is a real issue,Ž Ms. McCracken said. Anyone lucky enough to see a nesting turtle should stand back and watch, taking care to not disrupt or interfere with its behavior. No. 1 is, if you see a nesting turtle on the beach, just make sure to not approach it so you dont accidentally startle it,Ž Ms. McCracken said. Let it nest. Stay out of its line of sight, and dont touch it.Ž The center has counted more than 8,000 nests and expects another prom-ising year. Its looking like its again going to be a very good year for the loggerheads and the green turtles,Ž Ms. McCracken said. The leatherbacks are unpredict-able. Theyre kind of our wild card. But so far, things have been very positive.Ž Q Researchers from Gumbo Limbo Nature Center excavate hatched nests along the Boca Raton shore.

Once again, Im shaken by a young adult novel. Its filled with cruelty, suffer-ing, determination and decisions that shouldnt have to be made by someone just emerging from child-hood. Rosie is 17 as we meet her. She turns 18 about the same time she graduates from high school. She seems isolated, left to fend for herself in a household in which Lucy, her abusive stepmother, displays no parenting skills „ only an interest in hurting and manipulating Rosie. Its clear that the responsibility to care for Rosie she took on many years back has been in the way of Lucys needs. No longer married to Rosies father, Lucy now doesnt want to deal with her boyfriend Judds crude advanc-es toward her stepdaughter. When she married Rosies father, Lucy made a deal that would have a substantial payoff. She doesnt want to rock the boat that is sailing to that payoff, perfectly timed for Lucys freedom from parentingŽ Rosie. Rosie is also fighting the humiliation of ex-boyfriend Rays unwillingness to respect her wishes. She is not ready to have sex with him, and this stance has sent him looking elsewhere. Rosie leans on her best „ and pretty much her only „ friend: Mary. Mary is extremely supportive and understanding, perhaps because she too is striving to survive a dysfunctional family. Both girls want to get away from their dismal home situations, save up some money and get out of town so they can move on with their lives. Rosie is considering studying fashion design, but how can she pay for it?The girls have worked out a plan in which Rosie is essentially Marys pimp: Mary puts out for the sex-hungry school-boys, and the money is set aside for the girls futures „ which are just around the corner. When Rosie receives clues that her real mother is alive, the money is re-directed toward tracking her down and visiting her. She hires a private detective who takes this as a pro bono case and turns most of the scut work over to his nephew, a straight-arrow college student who pays attention to Rosie in a respect-ful way. Rosie also encounters the likelihood of an inheritance. The visit to the sanitarium in Colorado is one of the high points of the novel, placed right where it should be. What is revealed there about mother and daugh-ter is astonishing and makes one rethink everything thats come before (so resist the temptation to leap ahead).In Rosie Girl,Ž many worlds collide. These include the world of high school, the world of the Miami area, the world of fam-ily dysfunction and the world of madness. Each is deftly and vividly portrayed, and each contributes insights and surprises. Several minor characters stand out, though they are only briefly center stage. These include teenage boys and girls of Rosies acquaintance, teachers and staff at the school, John the detective and his neph-ew (who is a very important and striking minor character) and an older neighbor-hood woman who befriends Rosie.What goes on inside Rosies head is what readers will find most engross-ing. The author has pinned down that threshold time of life: its yearnings and frustrations, its quick mood changes, its confused values, its encounters with loyalty and betrayal, its mixture of audac-ity and guilt, hope and hopelessness. Whatever part of the seesaw Rosie is on, Mary seems to be her counterpart on the other side. Julie Shepards book is powerful, moving and frightening. I havent yet decid-ed whether I should share it with my 17-year-old granddaughter. Id better ask her mother, whose 17th year I remember only too well. About the authorAfter receiving her degree in English literature from the University of Florida, Julie Shepard earned her teaching certifi-cate and taught seventh-grade English and several after-school creative writing pro-grams. It was during this time she devel-oped a keen ear for adolescent drama and knew that young adult fiction was the path her writing journey would take. Although she left the classroom years ago, her pas-sion for crafting dark, edgy stories contin-ues. She attends writing conferences and workshops, and meets for critique ses-sions with writing group members.While her sons have already escaped the household, she and her husband still occupy their own slice of paradise in Fort Lauderdale.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 13-19, 2017 BUSINESS A15 MONEY & INVESTINGHeed red flags about Blue Apron before buying stock I dont really get the whole meal kit delivery popularity sweeping across the country. If you have never heard of these services, it is where a company sends you a package full of ingredients along with a recipe to prepare the meal. You have to prep all of the ingredients and do the cooking along with paying a premi-um price for the food. I guess my thought is that if I am going to pay $10 for a meal, I dont really want to spend 20 minutes dicing onions and praying that my piece of salmon is cooked medium rare. Blue Apron is clearly the dominant player. The company went public ear-lier last month. With over $800 million in sales and explosive growth, the company should have been a Wall Street favorite. Instead, the company has faced significant headwinds over the last few weeks. Is this a time to jump into the stock? What may the future hold for Blue Apron?A month before Blue Aprons IPO, the stock was expected to make a huge splash when it went public. Then, just a few days prior to the offering, a bomb-shell was dropped on the food industry. Amazon announced that it was buying Whole Foods. Analysts proclaimed that the online company was going to revo-lutionize the way Americans buy food. One of the casualties of this announcement was Blue Aprons valuation. Prior to the announcement, the company was expected to be priced at $15 to $17 per share. Post announcement, the compa-nys stock was priced at $10 to $11 and APRN went public at the bottom of that range at $10 per share. Even at this lower valuation, investors were not clamoring for APRN. On one hand, the company was experiencing rapid growth. In the last two years, revenue grew by a factor of 10 from $78 mil-lion to $800 million. In addition, despite being the largest meal delivery company, it still has a very small market share with only about 1 percent of the $800 billion grocery market. There is lots of oppor-tunity to grow. However, there are many red flags with regard to APRNs financials. First, the company is losing money. In itself, this is fairly typical with newly formed, fast-growing public companies, so is not a reason in itself not to invest in the stock. Amazon was unprofitable for years. But the reasons for APRNs lack of profitability are cause for some concern. The company is spending huge amounts of money to attract new customers, as existing customers are not returning. The company spends around $94 to attract each new paying customer and each of these people spends around $57 worth of food each quarter. This would be fine if customers remained loyal to the compa-ny. But just 20 percent of customers still buy from the company a year after order-ing their first meal. This means that the majority of APRNs customers are not yet profitable after deducting food, ship-ping, marketing and administrative costs.Equally as concerning, the competitive landscape for Blue Apron will make it harder for the company to grow in the future. Fast-casual restaurants are promoting more healthy options and they do all of the prep work for you at basically the same price as Blue Apron. In addition, grocery stores, in an effort to combat Walmart, are offering more gourmet ready-made food products at low prices. And with Amazon entering the grocery business via Whole Foods, many analysts expect the combined company to beat Blue Apron in the meal delivery business.All of these factors have weighed heavily on APRN. The stock now trades below its $10 offering price at around $9. Even at this level, I would be very wary of this stock until the company can show meal kits are not just a fad and they have a strategy to grow profitable customers.

BEHIND THE WHEEL Nissan goes for a smaller, more distinct Rogue Sport Adding the word sportŽ to a car is usually just about enhancing a vehicle with a few more aggressive features. Ford offers new wheels, a different grille and deletes some chrome for this trim level on the Fusion, Edge and Explorer. So does the Honda Ridge-line. Even the luxury-level Range Rover Sport shares its wheelbase and engines with the standard Range Rover. So it could be easy to dismiss the Nissan Rogue Sport as just a trim level, when in fact, its a separate and distinct vehicle. Despite possible confusion over this new crossovers individuality, it will not likely be ignored. Buyers are now used to sportŽ vehicles as a premium package, but the Rogue Sport starts out at $3,000 less than the standard Rogue. In fact, it seems like the less expensive model is out to steal customers who are solely shopping on sticker price, but theres much more to the situation. Nissan established two different crossover names on the international market over a decade ago, utilizing one platform. The X-Trail was boxy enough to look truck-based (but it wasnt,) and the smaller Qashqai became popular in Europe for providing some sleek lines in a compact size. As crossover tastes began to unite under car-like designs, so did these two model lines. By 2014, the two established names merged similar stylings into big/little sibling alliance. We didnt see much of this in the U.S. because the latest Nissan Rogue is a version of the larger X-Trail, but the Qashqai never made it to our shores „ until now. The DNA shared between the Rogue and Rogue Sport is obvious. Similari-ties in the headlight designs, creased hood lines, and window profiles some-times make the two indistinguishable to a casual consumer. This is likely why Nissan didnt give the Rogue Sport a distinct name. After all, since we were never introduced to such exotic labels as the X-Trail and Qashqai, if Nissan tried that division on us now, wed probably accuse them of making a mountain out of a molehill. But the Rogue Sports design does live up to the sportŽ expectations of buyers by foregoing much of the chrome details of its larger brother, giving it an overall sleeker appearance. And when looking at Nissans total lineup, its clear this one is serving as a midpoint between the somewhat polarizing styling of the smaller Juke and their more conventional larger crossovers/SUVs. Inside, the Rogue Sport carries Nissans new style steering wheel that has a sporty grip and small horn cap reminis-cent of a BMW. The base model starts at $22,380, and comes equipped with all the popular features „ power windows, power locks, backup camera and key-less entry/ignition. But these are also found in a nearly identical layout on the redesigned 2017 Rogue. The real difference between these two siblings starts behind the front seats. Compared to its big bro, the Rogue Sports wheelbase is a few inches smaller and over a foot shorter in total length. That makes legroom a little tighter in the back seat and not enough space for an optional third row.Theres more distinction to the Rogue Sport out on the road. The 2.0-liter motor makes 140 horsepower, which is 30 less than the big Rogues standard 2.5-liter. Those extra ponies are missed under hard acceleration, but this is the case with many value-priced small crossovers.Instead, the steering and suspension are really where this one earns the sport name. It feels a bit more responsive than its bigger bro and many of its com-petitors. This doesnt compare to a true sport model like the Nissan 370Z, but it can be fun driving around town. Like any good crossover, the Rogue Sport comes with plenty of option pack-ages „ everything from all-wheel drive to radar-based intelligent cruise control. But these will add to the weight and/or the price. So choose features carefully. Nissan feels that theres now enough room in the USA for the X-Trail and Qashqai to both fit under the Rogue name. And the best distinction of the Rogue Sport is when its role is as the svelte and affordable little brother. Q myles Palm Beach Day Academy starts education center Palm Beach Day Academy has begun construction on its new Mandel-Palagye Education Center. Architects Harvard Jolly of Florida and builder Ibis Con-struction anticipate completion in the spring of 2018. The $7 million, 16,000-square-foot building is fully funded and will be on the east end of the schools existing two-story academic building. The two structures will be linked by an enclosed second-floor skyway. The two-story building is named for Keith and Stacy Palagye and Mort and Barbara Mandel, parents and grandparents of current-day students. Its on Flagler Drive near the Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens. Our children and grandchildren have attended Palm Beach Day Acad-emy for 21 years, with another 10 years ahead of us,Ž Mrs. Palagye said. We are completely invested in the mission of the school and are especially pleased to be a part of a large group of donors who have given to the Flagler campus new education center,Ž she said. It is a brilliant design, a comprehensive and state-of-the-art education center for our little ones, and (its) worth every penny being spent on it.Ž The new landscape will create a series of destinations for creative teaching, learning and social interaction, sourc-es say. The buildings architecture will inspire discovery through openings and natural light with fluid and connective spaces inside and outside of classrooms. The new Mandel-Palagye Education Center will provide more flexible learn-ing spaces for students to explore, dis-cover and collaborate in creative ways,Ž said Palm Beach Day Academys head of school, Dr. Edwin Gordon. Its innova-tive design allows for expanded teach-ing and learning opportunities in sci-ence, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics education,Ž he said, adding that the new building can serve as a hub on the schools lower campus where students, faculty and community can gather to address real-time, real-world challengesŽ in education, profes-sional development, the arts, literacy and neighborhood revitalization. Dr. Gordon noted that because Palm Beach Day Academy is recognized for preparing its students for the best sec-ondary schools possible, it has been a deciding factor for businesses moving executives to the area. PBDAs greatest legacy is that it really strengthens our community as a whole,Ž he said. Palm Beach Day Academy has grown from a cottage colony school in 1921 to a day school serving about 500 greater Palm Beach area students. Its lower campus serves students from age 2 to third grade in West Palm Beach. Its upper campus serves grades 4-9 in the town of Palm Beach. To learn more, visit or call 561-655-1188.

The Norton celebrates Bastille Day BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@” oridaweekly.comBonjour, mes amis, from La Musee dArt de Norton! Once a year, the Norton Museum of Art goes French to celebrate one of Frances most important holidays: La Fte nationale or French National Day. We know it as Bastille Day. The celebrations commemorate the storming of the Bastille,Ž an infamous medieval prison, by the citizens of Paris. The final straw was the dismissal of the finance minister. Residents swept through the city hoping to free thou-sands of inmates unjustly imprisoned by the corrupt monarchy. Even though the revolt only freed seven prisoners, it marked the turning point and shifted the momentum of the French Revolu-tion, which led to the countrys inde-pendence. Across France, towns celebrate with parades, and the oldest and largest regular military parade in Europe is the Bastille Day parade held on Paris famed Champs-lyses every July 14. And while the Norton doesnt have a parade planned, its celebration is bigger than ever. With solid public interest and a plethora of French art masterpieces in its collection, including 19th century and 20th century European painting and sculpture by Brancusi, Gauguin, Matisse, and Picasso, the Norton moved the celebration from a weekday to a Sat-urday, from noon to 5 p.m. July 15. At the center of the celebration is the exhibition French Connections,Ž featuring works from the Nortons col-lection of photography that explore Frances people, environs and culture. Rachel Gustafson will lead discussion of the photography in the collection from 1 to 1:40 p.m. in the Davis Gallery. The popular Spotlight Talks take place all afternoon. First up, a tour that features Georges Braque and Les Soeurs Chevalme at 12:30 and 12:45 in the Gal-leries, followed by Gustave Courbet and Valerie Belin at 1:30 and 1:45 p.m. At 2:30 and 2:45 p.m., talks feature Robert Delaunay and Eugene Atget. The talk at 3:30 and 3:45 p.m. focuses on Claude Monet and Yasumasa Morimura. Bastille Day is co-hosted by the Multilingual Language and Culture Soci-ety in West Palm Beach. Founder and director Natacha Koblova will teach a 40-minute French 101Ž class at 2 p.m. in the Davis Gallery.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 13-19, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY What is it with my family and cars? A maternal great-grandfather loved them enough that he built one of his own „ he and my grandfather even owned an Oldsmobile and Buick dealership in Indiana. Driving wasnt just for the men, either. The women in my family always have driven „ three of my four great-grandmothers drove and both of my grandmothers drove „ fast. My grandmother Dorothy told the tale of how their father bought a touring car of some sort around 1920 or 21. They cleared an alley and a field in Thomasville, Ga., so he, Aunt Cleo, age 10, and Granny could learn to drive the thing. Everyone stood back and watched, she said. They moved to Florida in 1923 before moving back to South Georgia to run the family farm. Later, when my fathers family came back to South Florida around 1929, it was my 12-year-old grandmother Dorothy who drove the truck as they headed south. Yes, it was another world.Around 1933, Aunt Cleo and Granny set out on a road trip from Fort Pierce to visit the relatives in South Georgia. They no doubt were wearing hats and gloves as they zipped along U.S. 1 in Cleos tiny American Austin „ the 1930s answer to the Mini Cooper. Florida was open country back then, with towns that gave way to orange groves and pastures, where cattle freely grazed unencumbered by fences. Indeed, if you were to have asked Cleo and Granny before they left Fort Pierce, theyd have assured you that rural Florida was a bucolic paradise. And so it was, until they crossed a bridge and met a cow somewhere around Sebastian. Cleo insisted the cow was grazing at the side of the road on the other side of the bridge. But by the time they had crossed, Cleo had driven the rinky-dink Roadster under the cow, which promptly relieved itself all over Granny. The cow survived.But Granny and Cleo were covered in the bovine response to their meeting. It wasnt pretty „ Granny was heard to say, Shit!Ž for the first time. Repeatedly. The ladies returned home for cleanup. When they got home, my great-grandfather and my grandmother Dorothy were there. They tried not to laugh, but how could they not? Of course, the more they laughed, the angrier Cleo and Granny became. And so another family story raced into legend.

No Theres not much war in War for the Planet of the Apes,Ž which is a problem given that its called War for the Planet of the Apes.Ž A better, more accurate title would have been Failed Diplomacy on the Planet of the Apes,Ž though of course that wouldnt get anyone excited. WarŽ though, YEAH. An apes-fighting-humans sum-mer blockbuster „ give me some of that. It opens well, as an army battalion closes in on an ape strong-hold. The humans think theyre at war, the apes just want to be left alone. Humans attack. Apes defend themselves. Its a nicely staged, edited and performed sequence, and gives hope for posi-tive things to come. And then ƒ nothing.The apes talk about their feelings and soon were about to doze off. The dialog isnt well written. In fact, this may set the record for most subtitles in a big bud-get blockbuster. Its a given that people spending money to see a movie with this title dont want to read from the screen. This isnt a foreign film, after all. Now we do need to know what the apes are communicating, so why not let them all speak? Not just the leader, Cae-sar (Andy Serkis), all of them. Because heres the logical flaw in only Caesar speaking: How do the other apes under-stand English? Furthermore, when hes not facing other apes and they sign (lan-guage) something to him, he shouldnt be responding as if theyre in conversation when he cant see them. Apparently the other apes understand English perfectly, they just cant speak it. The few that try a word here and there, though, do just fine. I know. Im talking about logic in a movie about a talking ape and the humans trying to kill him. Perhaps my frustration is misguided. Lets instead put all the blame for the films failings on the misshapen story. After big bad Colonel McCullogh (Woody Harrelson) kills Caesars wife (Judy Greer) and son (Max Lloyd-Jones), Caesar vows to kill him. Important: Caesar vows to kill only McCullogh and no one else. Its not much of a war when the protagonist is only after one person. On Caesar goes, picking up help in the form of fellow apes Maurice (Karin Konoval), Luca (Michael Adamthwaite) and Rocket (Terry Notary). They also take pity on a human girl, Nova (Amiah Miller), and the kooky Bad ApeŽ (Steve Zahn), so named because he used to be in a zoo and (presumably) thats what humans always said to him. Were supposed to feel bad for him. I didnt. As the chase evolves, nonsensical plot con-veniences take over. The apes find the per-fect people to join them on their journey, even in the most remote of places. Later, Nova walks straight into a restricted area completely unde-tected and assists incar-cerated apes, apparently because the guards had gone to bed for the night. All that implausibility aside, director Matt Reeves film does feature tremendous visual effects. Because they seem so real its easy to forget the apes are created using perfor-mance capture animation, in which the actors movements are placed into a com-puter that subsequently renders the apes. Given that everything about the apes is created inside a computer, the details of the hair, facial expressions, light reflecting in the eyes and even tears are absolutely stunning. If you do see this, be sure to make an effort to marvel at the technol-ogy on display. In the opening credits, War for the Planet of the ApesŽ provides a quick summary of predecessors RiseŽ (2011) and Dawn of the Planet of the ApesŽ (2014), which is good because the only thing I remembered about those two was how forgettable they were. Now having seen the third film, I hope the fourth will extend the same courtesy. Q dan Did you know?>> There have now been nine “Planet of the Apes” movies, and the rst one (1968) is still the best. FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 13-19, 2017 B11 FILM CAPSULESSpider-Man: Homecoming +++ (Tom Holland, Robert Downey Jr., Michael Keaton) Spider-Man (Holland) must stop a black market arms dealer (Keaton) from selling alien technology to criminals. Solid action, humor, and a winning performance from Holland in the title role make this thoroughly enjoyable summer fare. Rated PG-13. Despicable Me ++ (Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker) Gru (Carell), his long-lost brother Dru (Carell again) and Lucy try to stop 80s inspired villain Balthazar Bratt (Parker) from destroying Hollywood. Too much focus on Carells two characters and not enough on the villain and story make this an uneven disappointment. Rated PG. The Beguiled +++ (Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Elle Fanning) During the Civil War, a wounded Union soldier is taken in by Confederate women who subsequently compete for his attention. 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 actu-ally pretty amusing. The story is cleverer than you expect, and the visual effects and action are strong.

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 13-19, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY CAROLS CORNER Furry Friends partners with Dogs 4 Disabled Veterans carol Giving Furry Friends Adoption, Clinic & Ranch in Jupiter the accolades it truly deserves, it is exciting to report that it has partnered with Dogs 4 Disabled Veterans to bring rescued dogs for training at the Martin County Correctional Institution Work Camp They are helping at the correctional center and available for adoption in Palm Beach County as well. Thanks to the fine work being done by Pat Deshong the president, and her armyŽ of volunteers, both orga-nizations save animals from high-kill shelters and have unique training pro-grams that partner pets with people. Hallelujah! Lorri Volkman of Dogs 4 Disabled Veterans (D4DV), reached out to Mrs. Deshong to discuss the program and partnership. Both organizations have specialized training for service dogs for veterans, so they agreed to work together to help at the work camp. The lucky dogs in the program must pass a test to demonstrate the right temperament for training. They will enter the facility for four months for training exercises. The dogs are placed at the work camp, where inmates train the dogs through a train-the-trainer pro-gram. At the end of their training, the dogs will be available for adoption. The dogs, inmates and future adopters benefit through the rescue, training and placement process. Mrs. Deshong visited the Martin County facility with Ms. Volkman, train-er and co-founder of Dogs 4 Disabled Veterans, and was impressed with what she saw. She met with prison officials as well as with several of the inmates who were accepted in the program. They discussed the feasibility and ben-efits of the program for both dogs and inmates. I insisted on visiting the prison prior to committing to the program. I wanted to meet the inmates involved and see for myself where our dogs would be liv-ing,Ž Ms. Deshong said. I felt very good about the program after they demon-strated their knowledge of basic obedi-ence training and when they expressed how meaningful it was to have dogs as companions. It was obvious that the dogs meant a great deal to them and that they were instrumental in their rehabilitation. We presently have two dogs with a request from them for four more for a total of six.Ž Ms. Volkman agreed.It is a WIN, WIN, WIN. First, the dogs are rescued by Furry Friends. Then the inmates learn a new skill, training dogs. The dogs become adopt-able because theyre trained, and last, we get to see if the dog can become a candidate for our organization, Dogs 4 Disabled Veterans.Ž Mrs. Deshong realized the opportunity in partnering with the program. It means so much to the inmates to have a dog by their side while they are reha-bilitating, and our rescued dogs have a chance to spend one-on-one time with someone that will train and care for them. This is a reward-based program for good behavior for the inmates that are accepted into this training program.Ž The first two dogs to enter the program are Tito and CK Tito is a 1-yearold terrier mix that was surrendered by another shelter, and CK is a year-old hound mix that was found in the parking lot of a Circle K in Jupiter. Both pups were deemed as great candidates. Furry Friends, based in Maplewood Plaza in Jupiter, also has a 27-acre ranch in Palm City. Oh, and dont forget to put the Hang 20 Surf Dog Classic on your calendar for Aug. 26. Held in Carlin Park, It is a fabulous fundraising event for Furry Friends Adoption Clinic & Ranch and is sponsored by All Animal Eye Care and Jupiter Pet Emergency & Spe-cialty Center Thousands of folks come out to watch the dog surf competition and have great summertime fun. They even have dog surf lessons, so sign your dog up now. To learn more, about Furry Friends and how you can support the organi-zation visit or call Pat Deshong, president, at 561-747-5311.

Who needs anything else? The lunch-size order of this roll of goodness was rich, with a crispy crust on the outside and a nice, bready inte-rior, all the better for sopping up Sals marinara, served on the side. Q „ Sc ott Simmons THE DISH: Highlights from local menus SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE jan Testa’s to close after nearly a century in Palm Beach An iconic restaurant „ the longest running restaurant in Palm Beach Coun-ty „ will close its doors July 15 after its dinner service. Testas a fixture in Palm Beach since 1921, closes to give way to the demoli-tion and rebuilding of the property at 221 Royal Poinciana Way. Its bittersweet,Ž said Anna Testa Striefel granddaughter of the restaurants founder, Michele Testa Though rumors have swirled for a decade about the property, it wasnt until last month that the property deal was settled. But, she said, things have changed dramatically on the island the last cou-ple of decades, and the restaurant scene has changed with it. For a long time, there were about five restaurants in the neighborhood. Now there are 20. This restaurant is huge. We dont need this much space,Ž she said. What began as an ice cream shop nearby became a full-fledged restaurant in 1929 „ just as the Great Depression hit. Hard times hit for everyone, but Testas would serve the needy outside the back door. Prosperity returned, and with it the resort crowds. A second Testas opened in Bar Harbor, Maine „ and remains open for its snowbird friends. Here, crowds will miss the breakfast blueberry pancakes and the famous strawberry pie, as well as a menu thats adapted to trends over the years but was known for being simple, down-to-earth food. Its not fou-fouey,Ž she said, its just really good, simple food.Ž Her dad, Michael Testa Jr. now deceased, explained it in a 1991 inter-view with this reporter by saying, We dont let our cooks get too creative. We have a formula book (for them), and they follow our way of doing things.Ž The recipes were created from family recipes, brought to America by his fore-bears from Sicily. Pleasing customers was the rule, he said. We know what our customers want.Ž He remembered when horse-drawn carriages brought people to the res-taurant, and mules were used to pull a streetcar down Main Street. It cost 5 cents to ride,Ž he said. Through the years, tastes changed, and a younger crowd now visits the island, asking for healthier foods, Mrs. Striefel said. Crab au gratin „ we havent had that for years,Ž she said, laughing over the best-sellers from the late 1980s. Spaghetti Testa „ we havent had that for years, either. People just dont eat that way anymore „ all that heavy food, with sauce on that and another sauces there. They want lighter foods.Ž Kale salads, avocado and other trendy vegetables play a role on todays menu, and are used creatively. Gone are the days of the fruit salad with the cup of sherbet in the middle.Ž The strawberry pie remains, however. That recipe will probably go to our graves with us,Ž she said, laughing. Its popularity amazes her. Isnt it funny, after all these years. But it is so yummy.Ž Dont count them totally out. A smaller Testas opening somewhere nearby is possible. Were perhaps looking at a different location,Ž she said. Its what-ever comes up thats good, that suits us.Ž Kapow! Noodle Bar set to open on Clematis A popular Asian street food restaurant and bar comes to downtown West Palm Beach in the former Longboards space on Clematis Street. Kapow! Noodle Bar from the team behind Subculture Coffee and the Respectable Street nightclub in the same block, is to open July 20. Partners Vaughan Dugan Rodney Mayo and Scott Frielich opened the original Kapow! in Bocas Mizner Park in 2011 to lively crowds, and expect to replicate the experience in West Palm. The space is larger indoors, Mr. Frielich said, but a smaller outdoor area gives it roughly the same seating, around 125. A back outdoor patio is shared with sister restaurant Hullabaloo, and a small Airstream trailer serves as a bar. His partner, Mr. Mayo, has worked to design the restaurant with more of a modern Asian loungeyŽ feel, he said. Rodney doesnt like to do the same stores twice; he gets bored,Ž he said. We have to change it up.Ž Chef Tim Nickey who was originally from Miamis China Grill and most recently Komodo also in Miami, has been hired to steer the menu for this and future Kapow! locations. It will be pretty close to Bocas,Ž Mr. Frielich said. Hes known for sticky rice, so hes adding that. A salmon sticky rice and a hamachi sticky rice „ we have more room in the kitchen to create some of these dishes.Ž Once this is up and running, other locations are likely, he said. Maybe in the north area „ Palm Beach Gardens and Jupiter.Ž Kapow! is at 519 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. Online at In brief Palm Beachs Worth Avenue Association s meal promotion,  Worth the Drive,Ž is aimed at bringing in diners through discounts and prix fixe meals for either lunch or dinner.
