The people making these denials go to great lengths to avoid owning up to his-torical fact, and they sanitize history and heritage so they will not have to. This is Southern heritage cleansed of its sins. It is accurate only insofar as it admits human tragedy on an unprecedented scale, omitting the legacy of damage and injus-tice done to millions of blacks. Anyone who challenges the myth-making stirs a rebels resolve to justify a terrible wrong as a noble right. But a tidal shift occurred after the South Carolina State Legislature ordered the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the Capitol grounds in Columbia. It was a sober act of modest contrition in response to the mass murder in 2015 of nine African-American worshipers attend-ing an evening Bible study in downtown Charleston. The trial of the murderer left no doubt as to why the Confederate battle flag featured prominently in his crime. It was the symbol of his own and others racial hatred. South Carolina state legislators publicly acknowledged this fact when the flag was removed from state-sanctioned display on government grounds. Of course, the backlash was immediate. The Ku Klux Klan organized a march of white supremacists in protest and then a heritage, not hatersŽ rollback began, defending the flags display and to deter communities from revisiting the place-ment in public places of memorials eulo-gizing the Confederate cause. But Ameri-cans werent deterred. They were moved to action by the consequence of sustaining a false narrative injurious in its extremes. Relics of the Confederacy are everywhere, in the halls of government, on public squares, emblazoned on public buildings, flying aloft and etched in stone. They are honorifics hidden in plain sight, memorials that evince, in these times, a welling contradiction between the more perfect union the Civil War fought to preserve and a vision of America had the South won the war and slavery survived intact. None has addressed this issue more bluntly than the mayor of New Orleans, Mitch Landrieu. Last May he made a pub-lic speech defending the removal of the last of four Confederate monuments in the city. He was plain-spoken about the historical heart of the matter. Said Landrieu, It is self-evident that these men did not fight for the United States of America. They fought against it. They may have been warriors, but in this cause, they were not patriots. ƒ The Civil War is over, and the Confederacy lost and we are better for it. Surely, we are far enough removed from this dark time to acknowledge that the cause of the Confed-eracy was wrong.Ž Florida lawmakers have proven less sanguine about the need to move on. But there is hope. Following the Charleston massacre, the Florida Legislature agreed it was time to remove Confederate Gen. Edmond Kirby Smith from the U.S. Capitols Statuary Hall, one of two Florida honorees. (Dr. John Gorrie, the father of air condition-ing,Ž is the other.) Smiths likeness has been in Statuary Hall since 1922. His claim to fame? He was in Florida when he surrendered his saber and the last military force of the Confed-eracy in 1865. Though a Floridian by birth, his connections to Florida are otherwise unremarkable. A lengthy process ensued to replace Smith. Nominees were invited statewide. After winnowing the suggestions, three candidates emerged: Marjorie Stoneman Douglas, author of The Everglades: River of GrassŽ and mother of the Everglades National Park; Mary McLeod Bethune, one of 17 children, daughter of former slaves, nationally known author, educator and civil rights activist and founder of Bethune-Cookman University; and George Washington Jenkins Jr., founder of the Pub-lix grocery chain. In April, the Florida Senate passed a resolution to replace Smith with Bethune. The House resisted the Senates lead, pro-posing Douglas. Then a third possibility arose, blocking the bill and derailing the entire process. State Rep. Scott Plakon, the House committee chair, complained the process was flawed.Ž But really, Plakon favored Walt Disney. His discontent brought legislation to a standstill and won Gen. Smith a reprieve from removal for another year. In reply, Randolph Bracy Jr., a guest columnist for the Orlando Sentinel wrote, Even as the Florida Legislature tries to address the states sordid history and mis-treatment of African-Americans since the Civil War, some members of the Florida House of Representatives continue to drag their feetƒ. Put Bethune in the statuary in Washington now, and stop fighting the Civil War over again.Ž The postscript to his commentary added, Bethune would be the first person and woman of color from the 50 states voted to such an honorƒŽ noting a special act of Congress inducted Rosa Parks in the Hall in 2005. That no woman of color has been honored by a state is a disgrace in and of itself. Mr. Bracy is right. The time is now for simple justice.

Quote-unquote. Thats the first sentence of a frontpage opinion in The Harvard Law Record. The words represent a mantra frequently repeated by those who care about money, status, power, and influence in law, busi-ness, higher education and government: Harvard is the best, they say. Yale, Princ-eton and Columbia are pretty good, too, along with a couple of others. The law schools current role is to produce the premiere legal guardians of international corporate control and state power,Ž the writer adds „ apparently peo-ple like Anthony Scaramucci, Harvard Law 89, the ousted White House communica-tions chief who stepped out of a high-profile career as an investment banker and hedge fund manager to take the job. With an endowment of $1.7 billion, Harvard Law has been compensated hand-somely for its role defending corporate capitalism; indeed considered as part of Harvard Universitys sprawling $36.4 bil-lion endowment empire, it might be seen more as a giant hedge fund masquerad-ing as a teaching institution rather than the reverse. The institution socializes its student body to choose big law over the public interest through crushing student debt loads, courses that focus almost exclu-sively on the legal problems of the wealthy, and its attachment to elite foundations and projects.Ž Getting a Harvard Law grad in your boardroom or government chambers these days, it seems, is like getting the gunfighter Jack Wilson (ShaneŽ) or the Sith fighter Darth Maul (Star Wars: The Phantom MenaceŽ) to help you put down wannabes, the little guys and do-gooders. Theres only one problem with that approach to success for the nations top law school: Its unethical and immoral. Since words are actions „ especially words in government that amount to far more than New York style,Ž as some are falsely calling it „ Mr. Scaramucci has shown himself to be an unethical blowhard, in spite of his Harvard pedigree. What I want to do is, I want to f---ing kill all the leakers and I want to get the Presidents agenda on track so we can succeed for the American people,Ž he told a reporter last week, adding some other more vulgar comments. Only one conclusion can be drawn from that statement: Harvard Law, along with Western Civilization, the basic goodness of the American people, public schools and Mr. and Mrs. Scaramucci of Long Island (where little Tony grew up) all appear to have failed the man. Especially if such an outburst is any indication of the best we can do and the brightest we can produce. Curious about the vitamins he failed to get in his Ivy League cereal, I called the Harvard Law School and asked if they require students to study ethics. Youve heard of ethics, perhaps: the moral prin-ciples requiring even-handed fairness in professional behavior; equal treatment of all under the law; equal opportunities for everybody; and defense of the weak, the poor, the young, the sick and the old. We have a requirement that students take courses in professional responsibility,Ž replied Michelle Deakin, managing direc-tor of media relations and public informa-tion at Harvard Law School. But to explain it and provide background, Ms. Deakin said, she would have to go off the record. Why? Because I dont want it to be about me,Ž she said. Some spokeswoman. She wouldnt speak, but she emailed a link or two. Harvard Law students can pick up ethics by taking courses in which doing the right thing is embedded in the subject matter. Among others theres a government lawyerŽ course listed in the online catalogue that covers the ethics requirement: Students intern for part of a semester in Washington, D.C. Since Harvards spokeswoman wouldnt comment, I called the Levin College of Law at the University of Florida in Gainesville. The school is rated at 41 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, but second in tax law and ninth in environmental law. There, I found sunshine. Amy Mashburn, the associate dean for Academic Affairs and a professor, told me students at all accredited law schools (about 200 in the country) have to pass an ethics course in professional responsibility, as its called. And they take a specialized bar exam solely devoted to legal ethics rules ƒ that 40-some states have based their licensure on. Students here are also required to take an Introduction to Lawyering with an ethical component.Ž It wasnt always that way.This is a result of Watergate,Ž Professor Mashburn said. The country was morti-fied because there was a lawyer under every rock in that scandal.Ž So yes, Mr. Scaramucci had to take some kind of course that mentioned ethics at Harvard Law School. The public will say, Arent lawyers supposed to behave better?Ž Professor Mash-burn said. And what I say is, we emphasize professionalism at every turn. Unethical behavior does not come from ignorance. The rules are designed to insure that no lawyers could claim they were ignorant of their professional responsibilities. Or of the ideals of their profession.Ž One of Mr. Scaramuccis classmates, Richard Kahlenberg, characterized him this way in a Washington Monthly recollection: a big personality ƒ an exuberant figure who proposed to his girlfriend on a Times Square bulletin board.Ž At Harvard Mr. Scaramucci never even considered public interest law as many stu-dents did, however briefly, he added. Like the president whom Scaramucci would go on to serve, getting rich was the goal and winning was everything.Ž Q Fight the Civil War no moreCan we finally put the Civil War to rest? The shooting is long over, the issues long decided. Yet fueled by atavistic ves-tiges, we now have controversy about the removal of Confederate public monu-ments and related emblems. From West Palm Beach to New Orleans, Alabama to South Carolina, neo-Confeder-ates are fighting to prolong a discredited spirit of exclusionary regression, as forces for inclusionary progress strive to sur-mount it. This erupted after the 2015 massacre at an African-American church in Charleston, committed by a racist who embraced the Confederate flag. In a welcome reaction, that flag was lowered from South Caro-linas statehouse grounds.The movement has spread. The Confederate flag came down from Alabamas state capitol. A Jefferson Davis statue was removed in New Orleans. And in West Palm Beach, the question has been whether to evict a privately owned simi-lar statue from the city-owned Wood-lawn Cemetery.While Confederate features on private property can be just as displeasing, they are free speech and dont suggest gen-eral acceptance. Also outside this debate should be objective historical markers. We must differentiate between respecting all who served in the Civil War and why the South fought. We can honor Southern soldiers as fellow human beings without honoring their cause of subjugat-ing other human beings. An army battling for states rightsŽ to maintain slavery is nothing to celebrate. Abraham Lincoln at Gettysburg praised these honored deadŽ and the brave men, living and dead, who struggled hereŽ with-out limiting his tribute to Union soldiers. He wisely wanted post-war reconcilia-tion but never legitimized an insurrection which the Constitution calls treason „ and neither should we. Even after 152 years, publicly sanctioned Confederate landmarks imply that seces-sion was justified; its impetus, perpetuat-ing slavery, was defensible; and the offense to African-Americans and all others who abhor racial prejudice is inconsequential. Avoiding those implications is not an attempt to erase history. Its an intellectu-ally honest and morally imperative effort to put that dark chapter of history into per-spective. Confederate memorabilia belong in places of study, where we can learn from that conflict while not glorifying the root cause. Its amazing that we still argue over this, but as William Faulkner noted: The past is never dead. Its not even past.Ž For some people, thats true. Yet our country cant live in the past „ especially one corrupted by bigotry „ and public institutions should not encourage people to wallow in it. Lets outgrow misplaced romanticism. In our multi-racial country, no group should be denigrated „ explicitly or implicitly „ by a government that whitewashes past persecutions. Die-hard secessionists, white supremacists and their kind are a minority „ even if they imagine they have a friend in our divisive president. But despite any far-right backlash, the growing pressure to shun Confederate artifacts proves our prog-ress. This wouldnt have happened genera-tions ago. Our sculptures, flags and other symbols show what we Americans cherish „ the memories we value and the identity we prize. They should reflect the best of our past and hopes for the future. Reminders of slaverys supporters do not do that. Its time for public monuments and other hallmarks to stop saluting the defend-ers of a shameful practice. Its time that all our objects of honor, from flags to statues, declare that amid our diversity we are one people.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 3-9, 2017 A5 Palm Healthcare Foundation launches Healthier Lake Worth, names director Palm Healthcare Foundation Inc. is expanding its community-driven, place-based funding approach, Healthier Together. Lake Worth will be the site of the new Healthier Lake Worth program, which will receive a total of $1 million in the next five years from Palm Healthcare Foundation to focus on behavioral health. Palm Healthcare Foundation uses this localized grant-making strategy to solve Palm Beach Countys most com-plex healthcare issues at the neigh-borhood level. The foundation funds four Healthier Together programs, and Healthier Lake Worth will be its fifth. More than a year ago, two local organizations, Community Partners and Palm Healthcare Foundation, joined forces at the intersection of health and community development, explained Patrick McNamara, president and CEO of Palm Healthcare Foundation. Receiv-ing a grant from the national Neigh-borWorks America and the RWJ Foun-dation, these two local organizations worked side by side to pull together a coalition of residents and leaders in Lake Worth, who researched the multiple factors that influence health outcomes in their community. With resident participation, a pilot project was formed to educate the commu-nity, fostering a sense of ownership and momentum. As a result of Lake Worth community commitment, Palm Healthcare Founda-tion received $1 million over five years to tackle the root causes of behavioral health issues facing Lake Worth resi-dents. In addition to traditional health services and resources, neighborhood safety and race equity will be addressed. Community Partners, Inc. will serve as the fiscal agent for the initiative. Ensuring that the program reflects the diversity of Lake Worth residents is of utmost importance for true, lasting and transformative change,Ž said Patrick McNamara, president and CEO of Palm Healthcare Foundation Inc. Healthi-er Lake Worth will develop a shared vision, common goals and action plans, creating solutions together,Ž he said. Carmelle Marcelin Chapman has been named project director of Healthi-er Lake Worth. For the past seven years, she served as the director of BRIDGES of Lake Worth, a program developed by the Childrens Services Council of Palm Beach County. Prior to that, she spent seven years with Planned Parenthood of South Florida as the director of an evidence-based teen pregnancy preven-tion program in the Glades area. Ms. Chapman attended the University of Miami, studying international finance and marketing. Q CHAPMAN Marinelife Center publishes study on sea turtle healthResearch biologists from the research laboratory at Loggerhead Marinelife Center have published a scientific study on how contaminants such as mercury and natural toxins from red tide algal blooms affect the health of sea turtles. In 2014, Dr. Justin Perrault, the centers associate director of research, began studying the toxins effects on Kemps ridley and green sea turtles in Big Bend, in Floridas Panhandle. Although very few such studies have been conducted, its more common to see algal blooms in that area, making it a prime spot to research the toxins. During the study, LMCs research biologists and colleagues from other laboratories collected blood samples and examined otherwise healthy turtles to see if they showed signs of fibro-papillomatosis, or FP, a tumor disease that affects green sea turtles. They then examined health parameters in plasma, and found that brevetoxins from red tide potentially contributed to inflam-mation, increased tumor growth and decreased body condition in Kemps ridley and green sea turtles. These contaminants can potentially impact disease development and negatively impact the immune function and survival of these endangered marine turtles,Ž Dr. Perrault said. We hope to continue learning about how these toxins affect sea turtles in an effort to better understand treatment options for animals that strand as a result of red tide.Ž This is the first study to reveal that brevetoxin exposure may promote FP tumor growth in green sea turtles.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 3-9, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALES Paris pup BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationThe French dont push pets in strollers. Stares, pointing, odd expressions and sometimes even laughter followed us as we rolled our Top Paw over cob-blestoned walkways in Paris and Ver-sailles, our cavalier King Charles span-iel Harper riding in stately splendor. Harper was in a stroller because she was recuperating from heart surgery, but of course onlookers didnt know that. They just thought we were crazy Americans with a spoiled dog. Cultural contrasts between American and European pet owners touch all areas, including acceptance in public places, health care and even potty rules. As a traveler, especially one accompa-nied by a dog, its fascinating to experi-ence the differences firsthand „ even when someone stops to tell me that peo-ple are laughing at my dog in a stroller. On the plus side, Harper enjoyed dining with us at Chez Michel, one of our favorite Paris restaurants. Even though I had emailed in advance to ensure that she would be welcome there, I was a little hesitant as I walked in to claim our reservation. But the hostess showed us right to our table and brought a bowl of water for Harper. To other diners, she was obviously nothing out of the ordinary; they paid her no attention. At home, when were seated outdoors at restaurants, passersby cant resist stop-ping to pet her as she mugs for atten-tion. In Paris, she adopted Gallic savoir faire and refrained from trying to visit people at other tables. Some things are the same in France and the U.S. Dogs arent allowed in grocery stores or bakeries, for instance. Usually farmers markets are a non non,Ž as well. But Harper has ridden public transportation in both San Fran-cisco and Paris. In both cities, well-behaved dogs are permitted on sub-ways, although there is sometimes a requirement for the dog to be in a carrier or to be muzzled. Department stores, boutiques and businesses in both countries may or may not allow dogs, depending on the typical clientele and the attitudes of owners. Parks are a different matter entirely. In the U.S., dogs frequent most grassy, open spaces, or even have parks devot-ed solely to them. Not so in France. Park areas are strictly for humans, with signs at entrances reading chiens interditŽ (no dogs allowedŽ). Rare exceptions include Parc Montsouris in the 14th arrondissement, the north end of the Tuileries and the south end of the Lux-embourg Gardens. Dogs are expected to do their business in the street, not in park grass. You may have heard that French sidewalks are a minefield of dog poop, but that is less the case these days, thanks to hefty fines for people who dont pick up. Dogs must wear a leash in most public places. Identification is required as well, in the form of a tattoo or microchip. French veterinary hospitals „ at least the one we went to „ are much the same as those in the U.S. Pet owners sit with their German shepherds, Labs, Brittanys or cats in the lobby, waiting to be seen. On the walls are posters about parasites, and shelves are filled with bags and cans of name-brand pet foods. Interestingly, some pet food brands are sold in shops that carry nothing else „ no toys, treats or other pet parapherna-lia. Pet boutiques in Paris include BHV La Niche, Moustaches and one known simply as Dog Store. Regardless of differences in laws, culture or philosophy of pet lovers at home and abroad, French and American animal aficionados share one thing in common: Their humans love and dote on them, even if its expressed in different ways.

A 2012 Cardinal Newman High School gradu-ate, Mr. Crowley, 23, is in his third year at Palm Beach State College, which does not have a golf team. He was play-ing in his fourth County Amateur. In 54 holes, he made 15 birdies and 5 bogeys. I hit the ball great today,Ž he said after the final round, never missed a fairway.Ž Asked if he was considering professional golf once he graduates from PBSC, Mr. Crowley said Ive got to get better, hit the ball farther, but yes, I think about it.Ž It was his second PBCGA victory this year following the Pricey Stroke Play in May on two cours-es in Vero Beach, winning a playoff at three under par 141.

The starting field was the smallest in years, due in part to the Florida Open the same weekend at Black Diamond Ranch in Citrus County. There were at least a half-dozen ama-teurs who might other-wise have stayed home and contested the Coun-ty Amateur, including the defending champion, Christopher Carlin of Plantation. Carlin shared low amateur honors and tied for seventh overall at 212. There were only two past champions in the County Amateur lineup and both made the 36-hole cut, which fell at 20 over par 164. Mike Weeks (2013) shot 223 while Daniel Eggertson (2011) totaled 227. Mr. Weeks is the membership director at Bear Lakes. At least nine other county champions are or were Bear Lakes members over the years: the late Mickey Van Gerbig winner of the inaugural County Amateur in 1976. Oth-ers were future tour pros Mark Calcavecchia 1979, and Steve Hart 1981; Mike Lefebre 1994; Eric Schreiber 1998; Chappel Brown 2007; Erik Downs 2010; Austin Powell 2012; and Robbie Wight 2015.

HEALTHY LIVINGGet kids on path to success as they return to school Its hard to believe that the summer months are winding down and were quickly approaching the start of the new school year. Like many families, our children spent their summer swimming, attending sports tournaments, going on family trips, and enjoying their sum-mer break. With back-to-school season around the corner, my husband and I are now getting our children back on a more structured routine to help them successfully start class-es again. This includes getting to bed and wak-ing up earlier, shopping for school supplies and uniforms, and preparing healthful lunches and snacks for them to enjoy throughout their day at school. Many of you may agree that, while we would like to feed our kids only the most nutritious and healthy foods, these may not always go over well when compared to more sugary and popular snacks. Fortunately, there are numerous options and substitutions for parents wanting to implement healthy eating habits with their children. Here are some sugges-tions, based on guidelines set forth by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, on packing healthy lunches and snacks for kids to enjoy. Healthy options for a productive school day If a child eats healthy foods, it can help stabilize their energy and sharpen their minds. Encouraging your child to make the right choices can be a chal-lenge, but the key is to make snacks tasty and readily available. Fruits and raw vegetables are ideal snacks for kids because they are both healthy and easy to eat. Sliced kiwi, ber-ries, apples, bananas and grapes make easy finger food and can be served on their own or with honey, caramel or peanut b utter. You can also sneak in fruits and veggies in other forms, such as applesauce, yogurt, frozen fruit bars and smoothies. For vegetables, cut up carrot sticks, broccoli, cucumber, celery or bell peppers and serve with low-fat dip or salad dressing. Alternatively, set out cut veggies like a salad bar and let kids make their own salad. Its also important to incorporate whole grains and low-fat dairy into your childs diet. Pita pockets, whole-wheat English muffins, cereals, granola bars, baked chips and crackers are more popular choices, as are low-fat cheeses, frozen yogurt and pudding. Nuts are another good snack when used sparingly, and if permitted at your childs school. Before you share nuts with other children, be sure no one is allergic. Trail mix, which can include a variety of nuts, seeds, raisins and other dried fruit, is a simple and fun treat. Beverages are just as important as the food that children consume. Instead of sugary sodas, serve your child a differ-ent option such as low-fat milk, 100 per-cent fruit juice or water. Living in South Florida, our children should drink more water than they realize to stay hydrated throughout the day. You also can encourage your child to eat heathy snacks by making food fun. Serve food on fun plates, with colorful cups and napkins, or cut sandwiches into fun shapes with cookie c utters. Another tip is to give kids a few different choices, but make them all healthy. That way, everyone wins: your child gets to choose their snack, and you get the satisfaction of knowing its nutritious. We heal the studious While preparing lunches and snacks are a critical aspect of getting your child prepared for school, there are also other important factors to consider. Help your kids ensure that they have all the neces-sary supplies for school, and make sure they know whom to contact in the event of an emergency if youre not around. On behalf of the staff and medical professionals at the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital at St. Marys Medical Center, we hope your children enjoy the new school year and put everything they learn to good use!

A16 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 3-9, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY ers and cooks. But in South Florida, there are those restaurateurs who have made it „ and have opened multiple eateries spread out in several counties. These are largely the independents, and generations of families in some cases, who have a handful of con-cepts that are successful on all levels. What made them so? We talked to several who provided insight into their processes. Solid work ethics, business acumen, market foresight, and putting ego aside to learn from the best of the competition are cited. Not with-standing, there was some luck involved, too. QQQDennis MaxThe man who brought the exploding California food move-ment to Florida in the 1980s, a concept now labeled as farm-to-table,Ž is still at it. Im 72 and I feel like 45,Ž says Dennis Max. After opening 41 or so restaurants in a variety of concepts „ he says hes lost count „ Mr. Max is still coming up with fresh ideas, while capital-izing on long-ago successes. The Boca Raton-based restaurateur started his professional restaurant career in the 1970s as manager in an up-and-com-ing chain of railroad-themed steakhouses, Victoria Station. They were going to grow rapidly,Ž he said, and he wanted in on that ground floor. As a regional manager, he moved to South Florida to open some of their res-taurants here. Along the way, he made friends with a coworker, Burt Rapoport, who would become his partner in several restaurants, including his first, a casual Mexican in Fort Lauderdale called Carlos & Pepes Cantina. In the beginning, he says, I kind of just wanted to do one restaurant. But I was always groomed to do this many.Ž Not long after came his foray into fine dining, with Caf Max in Pompano Beach. Its strip mall placement was a terrible location,Ž he said. But the unique California-style, farmfresh menu, plus a wine list gleaned from domestic vineyards hot at the time drew modern diners from as far away as Miami. The power of the concept was so strong, people came anyway. We were the first ones in the Southeast (U.S.) to do it,Ž he said. Nobody down here was doing anything like it.Ž Guests urged him to open in Miami, and he opened Maxs Place in Sunny Isles, another success. His star chef, Mark Militello, would go on to become a restau-rateur in his own right. Different concepts followed, always ahead of the dining curve. The Dennis Max name became gold in the business. His Italian concepts „ Prezzo, opened with Mr. Rapoport, having the first wood-burning oven around, and Maxaluna in Boca Raton „ were wildly successful. Prezzo will have a rebirth this fall in Park Plaza in Boca Raton „ with customer anticipation already high from its fans of the past. Not all his ideas were hits, however. Maxs Grille, a spot that has been a lunch staple since it opened in Boca Ratons Mizner Park more than 25 years ago, was tried in Orlandos Celebration, but never achieved the success of Bocas. Others, like Maxs Waters Edge in Manalapan, and Maxs Coffee Shop and The Mexican in Boca Raton, and the recently sh utter ed Social House in Delray, a cocktail-forward concept, didnt find audiences in their respective markets. The Social House was, he says, a labor of love.Ž He was surprised it didnt make it. I thought it was a really good job. Some-times you make good moves. The marketƒ it wasnt what they wanted.Ž His eye is on fresh foods in a casual, quick-serve setting now. Diners today are busy and on the run. But young peo-ple expect fresh foods. Youve got Whole Foods Market and Amazon now delivering fresh food to their homes.Ž He cites Bolay, the quick-fresh concept begun by Outback founder Tim Gannon with his son, Chris, as the new menus in his next iteration. Theres room in that areaŽ for his own concept that can be multiple units, he believes. Already successful with Maxs Harvest, a farm-to-table restaurant in Delrays Pine-apple Grove, he knows the food will work with todays diners. The challenge is find-ing the right markets for them and getting the right team in place. The secret to success is reading the audience,Ž he says. The smartest thing, though, is to always have really good peo-ple.Ž QQQLisabet SummaOne of only a handful of female partners in restaurants around the state, Lisabet Summa has earned her stripes at Big Time Restaurants. The group behind the 12 restaurants of Big City Tavern, City Cellar, City Oyster, Roccos Tacos, Grease Burger and the new Louie Bossis is on a roll, adding more restaurants and looking at new concepts. At age 20, she started with the group, which included Bill Watson and Todd Herbst, just after they had opened Big City Tavern in West Palm Beach. It was a rough period, she said, with an economic downturn in progress. I enjoyed it, though.Ž The group operated five or six restaurants when the big crash came. Some restaurateurs who hadnt had strong backgrounds failed, she said. Opening a few other restaurants at the time meant, It made us run stores leaner, and meaner. It set the stage for us to con-tinue to grow our own brands.Ž Soon, Roccos Tacos came into the fold. It was in the right place at the right time.I think so much is timing. We were so lucky with the timing going from the eco-nomic downturn, to affordable Mexican casual that was a bridge for us. We were doing something lively, fun, and afford-able.Ž The group has matured as restaurateurs, she said. As we grew, our reputation as restaurateurs was attractive to the talent base. It was good we survived; great that we were highly visible to the workplace.Ž She is quick to say that good service and a good staff is crucial to success. the human capital is our asset. Hospitality in a restaurant is everything. You have to have a solid core of business values: food costs, labor costs they are the unsexy part of the restaurant biz. All came together for us.Ž As a chef herself, she knows about personalities and how they can hinder an operation, or help it. Its synergy. You have to walk away from ego. If you allow everybody to be brilliant, have a good work environment, and keep good people employed, youre going to succeed.Ž As for the trends, she believes they always have the potential to do more, change more. You have to pay attention to whats going on. Be inspired by the culture. I read a lot and cook a lot. A collaborative with my chefs is key. In a multi-concept group, my expertise is developing talent.Ž Her partners travel a lot and bring back ideas. They dont let us stagnate.Ž Right now, her focus is on lightening menus at Roccos Tacos, and getting more healthy dishes on the menu. With the new Italian Louie Bossis, its a different story. There will always be indulgent meals. But we have a lot to offer. The Mediterranean diet is olive oils only. No leavening. Theyre students of long fermentation.Ž New locations are in discussion for Roccos Tacos (Tampa) and Louie Bossi (Delray Beach), and the menus continue to change. Roccos has opened locations in Orlando and Brooklyn. Its constant evolution. I think you have to be humble and say we could always do better. In this business, youre never bored. But it takes a lot of humility.Ž QQQPaul PedenSometimes, you have to leave a good thing alone. The Veranda is the oldest restaurant in Fort Myers, owned by Paul Peden, who knows a great res-taurant concept; hes operated seven or eight over the years. But the dowager of fine dining is a one-of-a-kind operation. Unique in so many ways,Ž he says. Yet it continues to evolve. Whatever the guest wants it to be, we want to accommodate and change for them.Ž In that regard, it will never be duplicated, he said. At one time or another over 40 years, we had steakhouses, seafood, Italian, Mexi-can restaurants. We dipped our toe in all kinds of concepts. What we found is its a lot harder to run seven different concepts than two.Ž Hes put his focus on Rib City, a barbecue spot he has turned into a franchise, with 28 of the full-serve cue restaurants in Florida and six other states. Rib City is easily duplicated. You can zero in. You know the operating costs, and if you manage labor costs, you can do com-parables between stores,Ž he said. Its the same physical setup, mostly, and the same menu, and same expectations for sales.SUCCESSFrom page 1 SUMMA MAX PEDEN COURTESY PHOTOCity Cellar has been a flagship for Big Time Restaurant Group since it opened at CityPlace.COURTESY PHOTOMax’s Harvest focuses on farm-to-table fare.COURTESY PHOTOSubculture recently opened Kapow!

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 3-9, 2017 NEWS A17 But even in a same-same restaurant, you have to be passionate about it. You gotta do it. Walk the walk and talk the talk. You have to be a personality that doesnt like confrontation. You have to be prepared for it on a constant basis.Ž He keeps up with the trends in technology that he says are changing the business drastically. We see a huge growth in home delivery and casual fast-service. Panera Bread: you dont deal with a service person „ You order, get your food and sit down.Ž The end of full service restaurants wont be soon, but more restaurants will be using this model to eliminate labor costs, he said. A new generation of diners doesnt mind the self-serve or ordering by screen, he says. Millennials want it now. Everybody has a phone or tablet in their hand. Thats how they do business and order everything today. If you want to be part of that market, you have to get in it.Ž Home delivery, and self-service are the models he is going to use for a new con-cept he hopes to launch in the next six months: Rib City Q. The Q is for quick. Youll order, get your food and sit. No servers so theres faster table turnover.Ž No waiting on bev-erages, the food, or check, and diners will eat and leave. There will be a delivery component to this one, too, he said, if the neighborhood warrants it and its logical. Its easily duplicated as a franchise, and there are none yet jumping on it. Everyone loves barbecue, he said, and theres a place for it everywhere. As to other concepts, hes not ruling them out, but the focus is on Rib City and Rib City Q. He sums it up: Theres no finish line in the restaurant business. You keep working at it.Ž QQQDean LavalleeThe owner of the PA BBQ & Grille chain that began in 1988 in Lake Park is anything but stagnant. Having expanded his brand to seven loca-tions, Dean Lavallee is now going into The Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens. Hes almost giddy at the prospect. Hes already checked out the potential mall customers. I stood behind the wall with the sign that says Coming Soon: PA BBQ and was able to listen in as the people walked by and read it,Ž he said. Some of them squealed: Oh, wow! PA BBQ is coming! and others said, Ive never been to one and the other person says, Oh, you have to try them! It was fun doing this game show thing.Ž Despite malls seeing a downturn in shoppers, thanks to the internet, he insists people still will shop at them if malls keep up with entertainment and interactive events that attract the younger shoppers. Hes banking on the news that Dicks Sporting Goods may be coming will help him, as well. Theyre definitely our cus-tomers.Ž So are the mall employees, whom he feels are underserved by other mall res-taurants that are full service and yet not as casual and approachable. He knows his customers, like he knows his business. He laughs about being a 20-year overnight success,Ž with a long time spent developing the barbecue restaurants that most consider Palm Beach Countys own homegrown ones. Mr. Lavallee got his start at classic restaurants in Palm Beach County: Chuck Muers Charleys Crab, The Gathering and others that taught him the best of fun-damentals in restaurant operations. He applied each operators ideas to his own to come up with the success package. As far as competition, he studies their successes, not the failures, though hes trained to look at both. I look at what makes them the best, and I take it and improve on it if I can, making me better.Ž His ideas, which some say are out there,Ž include a worm farm, with worms fed on coffee grounds he gathers from coffee shops, a recycled glass works stu-dio and plans for a housing project built around a sustainable farm. Its part of what he sees as responsible actions by restaurateurs, taking care of the land that feeds them. In the new restaurant, hes planning to incorporate sustainable counters made from recycled glass. Easier to clean and pretty resistant to bacteria,Ž he says. But thats part of his entrepreneurial side necessary to keep fresh in an industry that changes daily. He cant wait for the new spot „ he hopes to open in six weeks, unless permits hold him up. Im tremendously excited about the new space, and new customers. Ive always wanted a more upscale location. This is it.Ž QQQScott FrielichThe younger, hipper diners of West Palm Beach know the Subculture Restau-rant and Nightclub Groups properties well. With a stable that includes Respectable Street, Kapow! Noo-dle Bar, Sub-culture Coffee Bar, Lost Weekend, Camelot, How-leys restaurant, Honey and Dada in Delray, and Hullabaloo, partners Rodney Mayo, Vaughn Dugan and Scott Frielich are the cool kids in the restaurant world of Palm Beach County. The newest Kapow! just opened last month on Clematis Street, and Mr. Frielich says the time and place were right for the changeover from the failing Longboards. Its slightly different than its Southern sibling. Its a more loungy feel, and Asianinspired menu,Ž than Bocas, he said. The groups goal is to do an entire entertainment block on Clematis Street, with a redone Lost Weekend going in and Voltaire soon to open. A pool hall, club, coffee shop and restaurants will complete their plan, he said. He admits its always been a challenge to compete on Clematis Street. There are great operators on that street.Ž Lost Weekend has been around for more than 21 years, and Dada, for 18. Theres a longevity that has helped them plan for new ideas yet keep current with their stable of 15 current spots. Success comes from two areas, Mr. Frielich said. The customers, and your employees. Treat them both like kings. If you can really understand your customer, and treat them like you want to be treated, and keep good employees, youll succeed.Ž Failure, often, he said, is timing „ and a lot of it is also luck.Ž High rents in some areas, details like parking and market saturation have much to do with it. Getting in to a market at the right time and reading the customer cor-rectly is sometimes a matter of luck.Ž Despite a few failures, hes still bullish on the business and sees nothing but growth for the company. Theyll continue to expand their brands elsewhere. Sub-Culture Coffee, a big hit in both West Palm and Delray, is set to become a multi-unit brand throughout South Florida, with others currently planned for Jupiter and Fort Lauderdale. No two will be alike, however. Look for other concepts to emerge. Rodney has an eye for design,Ž he said. Hes an artist and has an eye for trends. Hes a designer, and for him its all about creating new concepts.Ž QQQRichard GonzmartHis name is legend in Floridas res-taurant history. With the iconic 112-year-old Columbia Restaurant to claim as a fifth-gen-eration heritage, Rich-ard Gonzmart could sit on some laurels a long while. Yet the 64-yearold, president of the Columbia Restaurant Group of 13 restau-rants, rises in the wee hours of the morn-ing daily, trolling the internet, churning ideas for his next projects. He has seven in the works. Hes a champion of Tampa and its future. Hes a philanthropist and hard worker who supports hard workers. Hes a cancer sur-vivor driven to make each day count. Its a mad ADD drive he admits to that doesnt stop, and its the cornerstone to his restaurants successes. Talking feverishly, he said, The key is to be passionate about the business. You have to be educated, and understand what it takes to run a restaurant, and what the guest expects.Ž As a restaurant owner, you must also reinvent yourself, he said. For the block-long Columbia in Ybor City, the oldest continuously operating restaurant in Florida, that means reinvest-ing in it to the tune of $25 million. Its the largest Spanish restaurant in the U.S., with 1,700 seats spread out among its 15 dining rooms and courtyard. We put a lot into restoring it. Its a lot of work to maintain,Ž he said. Meanwhile, he continues to fire off new concepts. Two of his latest are bold successes, both with a history factor. Ulele Restaurant and Brewery in Tampa opened three years ago on the Hillsbor-ough River in a building used by the citys Water Works years ago. The brewery is a nod to Mr. Gonzmarts great-grandfathers saloon. A giant round barbacoa grill is the centerpiece of the restaurant, in homage to the Arawak Native Americans who lived here in the 1500s. Gulf Coast oysters and steaks from a single Florida rancher are cooked over its fire. We created something unique. It surpassed my expectations,Ž he said. Then theres Goody Goody. Mr. Gonzmart fondly remembers the famous drive-in that closed in 2005 after an 80-year run. It was a part of Tampas identity, its who we were,Ž he said. It was the citys first drive-in restaurant, and was an infor-mal value meal for many. Serving multi-generations of families, it plays into the memories of longtime residents and visi-tors alike. The restaurant group revived it in 2016, and opened an outpost in the airport this year. The former owner praised him for taking such good care of the brand. He becomes even more animated talking about the project due next year in Ybor City. Its a Sicilian restaurant, Santo Stefano Quisquina, born out of the heritage recipes from a small Italian village, The (immigrant) families that came to Ybor City, a lot were from Spain and Cuba, but many were from Italy. Sixty percent of those came from one tiny Sicilian village: Santo Stefano di Camastra,Ž he said. The restaurant will capture the essence of the Old World cooking style. Every-thing has to be made from scratch, just like it was in the old days. We dont need a freezer.Ž All the foods will be fresh, he said. Hes had failures, he said. In the 1950s and 60s, the Columbia went through some hard times. Cigar factories in Ybor City shut down and people moved away. Troubles with a financial officer led to his firing, and Mr. Gonzmart taking over the management of Mangari, an Italian concept that didnt last, The company failed again in West Palm Beach with a Columbia, though he said he was warned against the fickle market beforehand. We were being courted by the company who ran CityPlace,Ž he said. Parking was but one issue. After a year that saw struggles, a new landlord didnt want to have an independent restaurant owner in the huge space along Okeechobee Boule-vard. Well negotiate out of it,Ž he told the landlord. A national chain was brought in. It soon went into Chapter 11 bankruptcy, he said. The Lord watched out for me.ŽHis says Never, never give up. Theres always a solution.Ž In this business, he said, You have to trust your instincts. When I havent fol-lowed up, I regretted it. If I didnt do it, I regret it.Ž Q COURTESY PHOTOColumbia Restaurant Group opened Ulele Restaurant and Brewery three years ago in Tampa.LAVALEE GONZMART FRIELICH

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 3-9, 2017 BUSINESS A19 BEHIND THE WHEELThere’s more Range Rover in the new Land Rover Discovery Land Rover is back with an all-new Discovery for 2017. In a break with tra-dition, the new family hauler is bowing to the luxurious side of the legendary 4x4 brand. But to understand why the departure is significant, its important to know what the Discovery represents. This vehicle was born to be a middleman. The first Land Rovers debuted after WWII and were built to be as utilitarian as the Jeep. These SeriesŽ vehicles (last seen in the U.S. as the Defender line) were great 4x4s but difficult on the highway. The Range Rover came along in the 1970s to be a more comfortable go-anywhere vehicle. As these moved up-market to serve wealthy clientele, there was a large gap in the Land Rover lineup. The Discovery was developed to be the bridge between these two estab-lished vehicles. Its design followed the rigid and functional lines seen on the Series III station wagon, but it borrowed the more comfortable chassis from the Range Rover. For its first few generations, the Discovery represented a capable and useful 4x4. With seating for up to seven, it became a popular beefy-looking mini-van alternative. And despite gaining a long list of luxury additions along the way, it remained the more affordable sibling to the go-anywhere Range Rover. But with the Defender 4x4 retired, and the Discovery now in the U.S. for nearly a quarter-century, the fifth-generation is taking on a new attitude. A sleek design replaces the boxy utilitarian lines. It shares the headlights, grille and bulldog-like jowl look of the Range Rover Sport. The resem-blance may not be accidental consider-ing the Discovery has been switched to the Range Rover and Range Rover Sports unibody construction and 115-inch wheelbase. The new Discovery pays tribute to the ones before it with the thick c-pillar and a step-up rear roof section. But it has a smoother profile with more sculpted curves. The sleek design is continued in the rear where the glass and taillights are rounded into a wraparound effect that makes it hard to distinguish where the side ends and the rear begins. Its a very stylistic setup, but Land Rover still remembered to give its new Discovery the off-center license plate housing „ a feature once necessary with the now-extinct exterior mounted spare. Inside, three rows of supple leather, power adjusting drivers bucket seat, and a center console dominated by a large 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system makes it the most luxurious Discovery ever. This is likely the result of customer input. There were plenty of people who bought this Land Rover in previous years and expected a Range Rover-level of coddling. And the features list is just as long as any premium luxury machine. Adap-tive cruise control, 360-degree parking view, three-zone climate control, power folding third row, dual headrest enter-tainment monitors, and so much more. All these options will push a Discovery from its base price of $50,985 to over $82K, like the HSE Luxury test vehicle seen here. No matter what level of option package is purchased, all trim levels come with the same standard gasoline engine. The 3.0-liter supercharged V6 produces 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. Its enough to get the job done, but it also ensures the V8s available in the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models remain the top dogs. And because the Discoverys only gasoline engine will never make it a hot rod, it might be worth investigating the diesel motor thats debuting in the U.S. This is only available on the higher trim packag-es, which means it will cost at least $60K. But the larger 443 lb-ft of torque can be best utilized with off-road features like the full hi/low 4x4 electronic transfer case and adjustable air ride suspension. We have yet to test the diesel, but it seems like the right recipe for a very capable seven-passenger crossover/SUV. The new Discovery continues the tradition of being the full-size gateway 4x4 to the luxurious Range Rover line. And now the styling is buddying up to its more deluxe siblings. Make no mistake, the Discovery carries a premium price tag of its own, but for those who can live without a V8, this feels like the bargain Range Rover. Q myles MONEY & INVESTINGCan Buffalo Wild Wings defeat the foul factors causing its stock decline? I think a great first date would be to take someone for wings and see what flavor he or she orders. Does the person go for the mild or the five-alarm fire hot? Does he order the sweet barbe-cue or the exotic tai garlic? Or is she a middle-of-the-road medium? I think you can tell a lot about a person by the flavor of wings that individual prefers. Unfortunately for Buffalo Wild Wings, there are not enough people taking my advice and going out for a delicious plate of wings lately. In fact, the last few quarters have been miser-able for the casual dining company. The company has been battling multiple headwinds and its stock price has been hit hard by the bad news. So what is ailing this restaurant chain and can it rebound from its many problems?BWW first went public in 2003 at $17 a share. At the time, the restaurant had 220 locations, mostly in the heartland of the U.S. During the next decade, BWW capi-talized on peoples love of watching live sports, beer and wings and the restaurant experienced explosive growth. By 2015, the company had over 1,000 locations and its share price rose to over $200 per share. The last couple of years, in contrast, have not been kind to the restaurant or its stockholders. Today its stock hovers at around $110 a share. The first cause of this is declining revenue growth rates. Millennials are abandoning casual din-ing chains and BWW has not been immune from this change in consumer behavior. Young people are gravitating to healthier, less expensive fast casual food or are taking advantage of delivery services like ubereats and are eating at home. This has negatively affected foot traffic at Buffalo Wild Wings locations. Second, higher food costs are hurting BWW. Chicken wing prices have been climbing to historical highs as demand for this food continues to outpace supply. This has directly and dramatically affected the restaurants profitability as it has been unable to pass these higher costs off to its customers. Finally, in an attempt to drive more customers to its restaurants, BWW has been forced to offer significant dis-counts and promotions, which has been hurting its margins. For example, half-price-wings-Tuesdays definitely draws people on the slowest day of the week for the restaurant. However, profitabil-ity is hurt when people are just order-ing half priced items, especially as wing prices continue to climb. So what is Buffalo Wild Wings doing to improve its profitability and boost its stock price? In its most recent earnings release, the company focused on two areas. First, the company is attempting to steer consumers to its bonelessŽ wings compared to traditional chicken wings. These boneless wings are signifi-cantly more profitable for the company compared to traditional wings in that they are just a piece of chicken meat that is breaded and fried. However, what does it say about the company when it is attempting to steer customers away from ordering their signature product?Second, the company is now focused on cutting costs where it can, given it cannot control its main costs, chicken wings. So far, it has been unsuccessful even with this strategy as restaurant operating expenses were 110 bps higher quarter over quarter and general and administrative expenses were 31 percent higher year over year. Given all of these problems, it should be no surprise that BWWs stock has been on the decline. But even after this fall, the stock still trades at a very rich P/E of 26. Therefore, despite my love of its signature products, I would advise staying away from this restaurants stock until it can prove it can control its food and other expenses along with growing its revenue and foot traffic.

ANTIQUESEarly toy bobble-heads featured complicated nodding BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVEL Bobble-heads are popular today as sports collectibles. Most baseball teams offer souvenir bobble-head dolls at some of the games during the year, but todays dolls are made of slick plastic and usually are wearing fabric uniforms. Early toy bobble-heads were made of painted papier-mache. The head bobs up and down because it is attached to a long-weighted neck thats suspended in the necks hole. It is balanced on a narrow metal rod that swings back and forth, making the head move. The idea came from 18th-century porcelain figu-rines that had moving heads and hands. The major German porcelain factories made complicated nodders. One was a group of four women drinking tea while their heads and hands moved. Another was a 20th-century figure of a woman seated in front of a typewriter. Her hands moved up and down as she typed. This bobble-head figure in a lime-green suit and hat is a 5-inch tall smiling Irish leprechaun nodder. It was made in Ger-many of a composition material; his glass eye is winking. Hes a charming fellow, but St. Patricks Day collectibles are not as popular as those for Hallow-een or Christmas, and there were fewer bids. The buyer paid only $59. Q: Is it true that furniture from the U.S. House of Representatives is some-times sold at auction? Who owns the chair used by each elected official? A: For many years, there were few rules about the furniture that belonged to the government in the Congressional buildings, the White House or other Federal buildings. It is said that President Lincolns wife sold some of the fur-nishings because she needed money to live on, as there was no pen-sion for the wife of a president. Now there are pages of instruc-tions about buying and selling official furnish-ings. Most pieces have to be paid for by the elected official accord-ing to a written sched-ule. We have seen sev-eral Victorian chairs from the House of Rep-resentatives sold. They were made in 1857 by a famous New York firm, Bembe & Kimbel. They featured three stars carved on the chair crest, and carved oak branches representing longevity and laurel for victory on the arms and legs. In 2008, a chair sold for about $19,000. Q: Are old Jantzen bathing suits collectible? Sellable? A: Carl Jantzen and John and Roy Zehntgbauer started the Portland Knit-ting Co. in 1910 in Oregon to make hosiery and sweaters. So when they were asked to make a knit wool bathing suit for a rowing team, they tried. By 1918 their company was called the Jantzen Knitting Mills, and they were mak-ing and licensing bath-ing suits sold all over the world. They made stylish suits that were nationally advertised, and promoted swimming events. The diving girl logo was cre-ated in 1920. All types of clothing made for sports have become collectible, and many serious fashion collections that started with designer gowns now have a division for sneak-ers and sports uniforms. A vintage swimsuit could sell for $25 to $50. Q: My grandmother and grandfather got a Three Face cake stand as a wedding gift back in the late 1800s, and I have it now. I want to sell it and wonder what its worth. A: Three Face is a pattern designed by John Ernest Miller for George Duncan & Sons of Pitts-burgh in 1875. Some sources say Millers wife was the model for the faces. The factory burned down in 1892, and the molds were destroyed. A new factory in Washington, Pa., opened in 1893. The company became Duncan & Miller Glass Co. in 1900, and became part of the United States Glass Co. in 1955. Duncan & Miller reproduced some Three Face pieces in the early 1920s and again in the early 1950s. The value of a Three Face cake stand depends on which version it is. Many copies were made by the Metropolitan Museum of Art and are marked MMA.Ž The origi-nal piece fluoresces yellow-green under a black light. It sells for about $300-$400. Q: When I was little, my dad gave me a 3-inch high teddy bear he got on a trip to Germany. When a knob on the bottom is turned, the head revolves to show two different faces. One side has a stitched nose and mouth and metal eyes. The other side has googly eyes, a metal nose and a white metal grinning mouth with a red tongue that sticks out. The bear is amber-colored mohair and has movable arms and legs. What can you tell me about it? A: This little bear was made by Schuco in the 1950s. The company was found-ed as Schreyer & Co. in 1912 by Heinrich Schreyer. The name was abbreviated to Schuco and used as the companys trademark beginning in 1921. The little bear is called Janus, after the Roman god with two faces. It sells for $200 to $450, depending on condition. Tip: Decorated glasses given as promotions at fast-food restaurants often fade in sunlight. Q „ Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Seniors can still opt to buy an annual pass for $20. Those who purchase an annual pass for four straight years can convert their pass to a lifetime senior pass. Even with the 700 percent price increase, the park service says the lifetime pass is still quite a bargain for those who purchase one. Single park-admission fees to the most popular sites „ which include the Grand Canyon, Great Smoky Moun-tains and Yosemite national parks „ can run as much as $30. If a senior visits three of the $30 parks, she or he has already saved money,Ž NPS spokesperson Kathy Kupper told AARP last month. Plus, the pass allows those traveling with seniors to enter the park with them.Ž In late 2016, Congress approved the National Park Service Centennial Act, that raises fees and sets up an endowment to help pay for projects and visitor services. The closest place to buy a pass is the Everglades Park center in Homestead. Passes are nonrefundable and nontransferable and cannot be replaced if lost or stolen. If lost or stolen, a new pass will need to be purchased.

It was a hot June afternoon the day I stopped at my friendly neighborhood Goodwill store. I scoured the shelves and walked the store, then repeated my path in reverse, and there it was: a Delft blue plate. Quality always stands out, and that was the case with this plate, from the deeply saturated blues to the mustard-colored trim around the edge. It was tossed among the housewares „ a mix of Corelle Livingware and 1970s Japanese stoneware, if I recall. My suspicions that it was something special were confirmed when I turned it over and saw the mark and tags that read De Drie Klokken (Bells)Ž on the back. Another tag also dated the plate, in the Peacock pattern, to between 1671 and 1764. I love Delft blue pottery.Theres something about the crispness of the blue design on the white pottery that is so refreshing.

The city of Delft, in the western Netherlands, became known for the deeply saturated blue of the glaze of its namesake pottery.

B10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 3-9, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYmusic in hopes of becoming a concert pianist. She went to Juilliard for 1 years. But when the money ran out, she began playing at a nightclub in Atlantic City. Not wanting her mother to know she was playing the devils music,Ž she changed her name to Nina Simone. At the insistence of the club owner, she began singing as well. She hadnt realized she had a voice.Sometimes I sound like gravel, sometimes like coffee and cream,Ž she said of her singing. Shed take a song and transform it into her own statement. I Loves You PorgyŽ was smooth, elegant, sophisticated. Her version of Aint Got NoŽ from HairŽ became a statement on racial injustice. She was known for songs such as Sinnerman,Ž I Put a Spell On YouŽ and Strange Fruit.Ž She was mercurial and had a temper; shed berate audience members for talk-ing and would stop playing. The Oscar-nominated What Happened, Miss Simone,Ž looks at her trou-bled personal life and the tumultuous times in which she lived, her musical life and her involvement in the civil rights movement. She wrote Mississip-pi Goddam,Ž which some radio stations banned, not only for the word god-damn,Ž but also for its racial content and also for lyrics such as, My country is full of lies ƒ I dont trust nobody anymore.Ž How can you be an artist and not reflect the times?Ž Ms. Simone asked. The film includes interviews with her daughter and her abusive husband, who was also her manager, as well as excerpts from Ms. Simones own diary. This compelling documentary looks at a complex woman who led a difficult, isolated life and was also full of beauty and talent. Her music and moving story reflect a powerful yet anguished soul.Q “All Things Must Pass” (2015)95 minutes, director: Colin Hanks All Things Must PassŽ is the story of Tower Records, known as the largest record store in the universe.Ž It tells of its beginnings, its success and its down-fall. Though it became an international business, making almost $1 billion in 1999, with 192 stores worldwide, it filed for bankruptcy in 2006. Tower Records was the vision of Russ Solomon, the CEO who opened the first store in Sacramento, Calif., in 1960. He went on to create a string of mega-supermarkets for records with aisles and aisles of every conceivable type of album, some stacked on the floor waist-high. Some stores were so big they had multiple floors. (The one in the East Village in New York City had four.) Its motto: No music, no life.Ž Shopping at a Tower Records was a social experience, a place where music-lovers happily spent hours perusing albums. It even had its own magazine, Pulse.Ž Clerks (who worked their way up to becoming managers and vice pres-idents) were passionate and knowledge-able about music „ and not just the Top 20 commercial stuff. There was no dress code. Working there was fun. This film by actor Colin Hanks is far from boring. Its not just the tale of an iconic chain store in a changing indus-try, but also relays the history of rock and roll, the passing of an era. In addition to those who worked there, interviewees include Bruce Springsteen, Elton John, David Grohl and record pro-ducer David Geffen, who all shopped there. (Mr. Grohl also worked there at one point, claiming it was the only place that would hire him with his long hair.) Elton John shopped at Tower Records weekly, calling it a ritual that I loved,Ž comparing it to going to your favorite caf.Ž He calls its closing one of the greatest tragedies of my life ƒ when it closed down, it really, really upset me.Ž Poignant and heartwarming, All Things Must PassŽ reminds you of the communal aspect of record buying and of a time when rock n roll made you feel as if anything was possible and the sky was the limit.Q “Found Sounds Bahia” (2006)28 minutes, director: David Zucker I came across Found Sounds BahiaŽ purely by accident. This short docu-mentary focuses on Lactomia, a group of kids in Candeal, in Bahia, Brazil, who use discarded objects to make instru-ments. Almost anything, it seems, can be used for percussion: pieces of scrap tin, lumber, cans, boxes, hubcaps, pipes. The band also recycles items to wear, designing outfits from plastic bags, potato bags, soda can tops, water bottle caps. Led by Jair Rezende, this creative group plays around the neighborhood, giving the kids focus and direction and keeping them from joining gangs. Lac-tomia even travels to New York City to play at Lincoln Center. Though not as polished a film, and feeling much too short, the drumming is mesmerizing and the way trash is trans-formed into art is astounding.Q “Janis: Little Girl Blue” (2015)105 minutes, director: Amy J. Berg Like Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin is a rock icon who tragically died of an acci-dental heroin overdose at age 27. Janis: Little Girl BlueŽ by Oscarnominated director Amy J. Berg, looks at the blues/rock singers life and career. She shows us the Janis we knew with the love beads and brace-lets, feathers and furs, but also the ostracized girl growing up in the con-servative, racist Port Arthur, Texas, of the 1940s and 50s. This documentary contains concert footage, including the Monterey Pop Festival and Woodstock, but also gives us a behind-the-scenes look at this trou-bled musician who never seemed to find the love and acceptance she craved. We get to see baby photos of Janis and childhood pix, including, it looks like, a photo of the artist in a Brownie outfit. Snippets from letters she wrote as well as interviews with her younger sister and brother give insight into her struggles and demons. She had questions about her own desirability,Ž her sister, Laurie Joplin, says. Were told that Janis loved rocking the boatŽ and was kicked out of the church choir not because of her voice, but because she wouldnt follow direc-tions.Ž She sang in a bluegrass group before making her way to San Francisco and finding her own tribe. But despite the camaraderie and the fame she enjoyed (her Cheap ThrillsŽ album went gold in three days, she was on the cover of Newsday magazine as Queen of the BluesŽ), she always felt like an outcast. Janis was most alive and free onstage, but as someone points out in the film: when the show is over the audience leaves and youre left with yourself. Janis: Little Girl BlueŽ is a modernday Greek tragedy, a singers life cut short just as she was finding her own voice and reaching her potential.Q “Just Like Being There” (2013)83 minutes, director: Scout Shannon Just Like Being ThereŽ is an intriguing journey through the world of gig posters. Whats a gig poster? The people who design them have various answers. Jermaine Rogers calls gig posters some of the purist pieces of modern folk art out there.Ž And Paloma Chavez says, A gig poster is something that is ultimately an advertisement, but when its a success-ful advertisement, its transporting you into that sound and that feeling of being in that crowd, in that dark cavernous arena and watching the band in front of you.Ž Simply put, gig posters are creatively designed screen-printed posters that tell you when and where your favor-ite indie band is going to be playing. Theyre highly popular and even col-lectible, with some selling for thousands on eBay (something the designers feel negative about.) Its a mixture of pure art, illustration, graphic design and music. Just Like Being ThereŽ interviews those whove designed posters for groups such as Spoon, Okkervil River, The Hold Steady, Tokyo Police Club, Arcade Fire, Ted Leo, Of Montreal, Andrew Bird, Death Cab for Cutie, The White Stripes and St. Vincent, just to name a handful. The images are as unusual and unconventional as the music. The documentary focuses mainly on gig posters for indie rock bands. Most of the designers are male and at least five or six of them are named Dan. The designers, such as Daniel Danger, Jay Ryan, Rob Jones and Dan Stiles, talk about their inspirations, and some dem-onstrate the process of screen-printing itself. We get to hear some of the bands talk about the artwork and see some of them performing too, including Spoon, Nada Surf, Ted Leo, Mogwai, The Thermals, Okkervil River and Tokyo Police Club. Watching Just Like Being ThereŽ is like being taken by the hand through various poster designers studios and given a private viewing of the work. Its a tribute to the new renaissance of rock posters and the creative minds behind them. Q DOCSFrom page 1


FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF AUGUST 3-9, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B11Last chance for “Company” This is your last chance to see the MNM Productions musical Company,Ž on stage at the Kravis Center, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach, through Aug. 6. Stephen Sondheims musical features an all-star cast of 14 South Florida theater favorites includ-ing Robert Johnson in the role of Bobby. The show is directed by Bruce Linser, who direct-ed Side By Side By SondheimŽ and The World Goes Round,Ž with Paul Reekie serv-ing as musical director. Tickets are $45, available by phone at 561-832-7469, or online at opening Lilyana LoVela, producer & COO of Fusion Fashion & Art Productions Inc., which produces the annual Fashion Week in West Palm Beach, will open the new Fusion Art & Fashion Gallery at 501 Fern St., West Palm Beach. From 4:30 to 9:30 p.m. Aug. 10, a reception will be held to introduce the first exhibition in the gallery, Sub-lime Chaos: a journey from realism to abstraction,Ž which will feature 25 paintings by West Palm Beach resident Deborah Bigeleisen. Flowers and nature have inspired Ms. Bigeleisens work, from her early career as a textile designer to her work as a fine artist, which she began when she relocated to South Florida in the late 90s. Her color-ful pieces draw heavily from the colors of nature. My discovery of fractals had transformed my vision of a flower by progres-sively magnifying the subject thousands of times to the point of pure abstraction. Thus began my exploration into abstract art; a journey I call Sublime Chaos, because at the onset, my vision and my painting pro-cess had been turned upside down. After working in oils for 16 years, I switched to acrylic paints. That change required learn-ing how to manipulate the paint, using different mediums, using different size brushes, and working on a flat surface instead of an easel. I credit the work of Irene Monat Stern and Paul Jenkins for igniting the spark,Ž Ms. Bigeleisen explains on her website, A portion of the proceeds from all sales from this exhibition will be donated to Soroptimist International of the Palm Beaches. The exhibition will be on display through Oct. 10. Free computer classes at the Mandel Your best source for free books and movies is also a great source of free education. The Mandel Public Library in West Palm Beach knows how impor-tant computer skills are today and it offers free classes to help you level the playing field.

Help is also available in Spanish. Call 561-868-7760 to schedule an appointment.

Season subscriptions are now available for purchase. The 2018 season showcases a wonderful mix of two well-known, beloved operas and one Palm Beach Opera premiere,Ž said Daniel Biaggi, general director. We are delighted to welcome so many internationally acclaimed per-formers to Palm Beach in important productions, which are sure to excite our audiences. Building on last seasons growth of our subscriber family and patrons overall, we anticipate several sold-out performances again.Ž First up: Giacomo Puccinis Tosca,Ž set for Jan. 26-28. The tragic tale of romance will include soprano Keri Alkema, whose lirico-spinto soprano voice has been praised by The New York Times as an appealing brew of dark and creamy colors.Ž She will portray the title role on Jan. 26 and 28; On Jan. 27, Alexandra Loutsion will perform the role, follow-ing her performance this year as Cio-Cio San in Ma dama B utterfly.Ž The lead tenor role of Cavaradossi is shared by Riccardo Massi (Jan. 26 and 28), who recently performed the same role at Royal Opera House Cov-ent Garden; and Adam Diegel (Jan. 27), who starred last season as Pinkerton in Madama B utterfly.Ž Scarpia is portrayed by Michael Chioldi, whos been seen on the Palm Beach Opera stages as Rigoletto, Macbeth and as Germont (La TraviataŽ).

LATEST FILMS‘Lady Macbeth’ +++ Is it worth $10? Yes A star is born in Lady Macbeth,Ž and her name is Florence Pugh. As Kather-ine, a young woman sold into a loveless marriage in 19th century rural England, Ms. Pugh is a revelation, a legit tal-ent who announces her presence with fierce authority. Shes a surefire Oscar contender for Best Actress. Her eminently watchable Kath-erine begins the film as a subser-vient waif stuck in a marriage to someone who has no interest in her. She acquiesces to her husbands demands „ none of them sexual „ and in doing so isnt allowed to do much of anything. She cant go out-side. She has no friends. She cant go to bed when she wants. Shes a kept woman whose happiness is disre-garded at every turn; her role is func-tional rather than necessary, which is a horrible way to live. Its only when her husband (Paul Hilton) and father-in-law (Christopher Fairbank) leave for business that she begins to come out of her shell. She chats with her maid Anna (Naomi Ackie). She drinks more than she ordinarily would. She even sticks up for Anna when the stable boys bully her. She is the woman of the house, after all. Then something unexpected happens. One of the groomsmen for the horses, Sebastian (Cosmo Jarvis), piques her interest. She piques his interest, too. A torrid love affair ensues, appearing safe because theres no sign of her husband returning. Youll think you know where the story is headed „ and youll be cor-rect to an extent. But how it gets there and where it goes afterward you will not see coming. And oh, boy, is it a doozy. Shakespeare fans will be disappointed to know this has nothing to do with the Bards Lady Macbeth, except perhaps for her calculating ways. Rather, writer Alice Birchs screenplay is based on Nikolai Leskovs novel Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk,Ž and as I understand, it devi-ates slightly from the book for optimum cinematic effect. This is a good thing, as it is the filmmakers responsibility to make the best movie they can, not to be as faithful to the source material as pos-sible. Whats remarkable about Ms. Pughs performance is how Katherines charac-ter arc feels natural and shocking at the same time. In the beginning, Katherine is hopeless and demure, mindful of her social role and fearful of the consequenc-es of expecting anything else. Shes still appealing, though, as you sense her suppressed per-sonality waiting to come out. As the story evolves, she has numerous awakenings, and as Ms. Pugh shows Katherines passion and desperation to hold onto the only thing shes ever known as happi-ness, we are enrap-tured with her per-formance. For as great as Ms. Pugh is, this movie is also a coming out party for heretofore unknown director William Oldroyd, whose previous work includes only three short films. At 89 minutes Lady MacbethŽ is on the short side of feature length, but its as long as it needs to be. The dark, dank and depressing aesthetics fit the setting and are appropriate for the harshness of the story. Life is so dull and seemingly cold and uncomfort-able, that its no wonder Katherine will do anything to hold on to the few plea-sures she knows. For our sake, its a pleasure to watch Lady Macbeth.Ž This is a jolt of dark drama in the midst of mainstream sum-mer, and a welcome sight at that. The film industry had better be warned: Hell hath no fury like Florence Pugh.

Phone 561-747-7426; Price: $10.75 The Details: Sometimes, you just have a craving for an old-fashioned club sandwich. Heres one done right „ the Classic Turkey Club „ the Mitchell SpecialŽ named for a customer. Its a whopper of a meal between breads, defying a jaw that can envelope it in one chomp. Thats real turkey, roasted on the bone, several slices stacked high along with crispy bacon, lettuce, tomato and cheese on request. Choose your toasted bread „ we like rye. It comes with a pickle and a choice of a side; the steak fries are fine, but we like the potato salad, too. The service throughout the meal at this luncheonette comes with a smile. Its on our top five for service in the whole county, actually. Bring cash „ no cards accepted here, but theyll wait for you to bring it back if you forget and need to run to the ATM. (Told you they are friendly!) Q „ J an Norris While at his pr evious job as executive chef at The Social Club on Miami Beach, Blair Wilson racked up honors for the restaurant, including Best Breakfast in Miami,Ž from New Times, Top Ten Best Ribs in South Florida,Ž by Eater, Top Ten Restaurants in South Beach,Ž by Thrillist, the Snail of Approval,Ž from the Miami Chapter of the Slow Food Movement and the prized Peoples Choice Award.Ž This summer, Chef Wilson brings his award-winning talents to Delray Beachs Pineapple Gr ove, where he has become executive chef at Maxs Harvest, a styl-ish farm-to-table restaurant known for its simply prepared but inspired dishes made of fresh ingredients. It was time for a change,Ž Chef Wilson said. My job was good, but living in Miami while working in South Beach was tough. In Miami, the restaurant was part of a hotel. This is different. Ill have the ability to build networks with some of the farms and build on relationships I already had. Im going to be much more focused here.Ž He said he feels more of a sense of community in Delray Beach. My goal for the next year includes elevating service, elevating the wine program and the bar,Ž he said. To me, theres no excuse for this not to be the best restaurant in Delray.Ž He is planning to have a new menu, making it more navigable and approach-ableŽ by the end of July and will have more pairing dinners like the one the restaurant will have to celebrate the Tour de France at 6:30 p.m. July 13 dur-ing the Tour de France and will include creative, modern French dishes, paired with French wines from each region of the country. The dinner will include four courses and six wines. (Cost to attend is $65 per person. For reservations, call 561-381-9970.) Born and raised in Alexandria, Va., Chef Wilson said his foray into cooking happened by chance. In high school, I had a summer job doing grounds work on a plantation near my house,Ž he said. There was a wed-ding and the farms chef found herself short-handed so everyone pitched in. I took a liking to the work and she (the chef) saw that I adapted well and took direction well. I ended up working there for seven years.Ž When he graduated from college with a degree in business and computer sci-ence, he went on to the Culinary Insti-tute of America and work in fine kitch-ens across the American Southeast. Among the restaurants at which he has been employed over the years are the Charleston Place Hotel in South Caroli-na, Colorados Broadmoor Hotel and the Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans. After joining the Kimpton family in February 2013, Wilson returned to Vir-ginia to cook at Jackson 20. He began working at The Social Club in 2014. The Charleston Place Hotel holds especially sweet memories for Chef Wilson since thats where he met his wife, also a chef, Maleah. The couple recently moved to Delray Beach and has a 2-year-old daughter, Athena. Maleah is also a sommelier and a yoga instructor. He has never regretted his education in business management and computer science. I use what I learned every day,Ž he said. Blair WilsonAge: 37 Original hometown: Alexandria, Va. Restaurant: Maxs Harvest, Pineapple Grove, 169 NE Sec ond Ave., Delray Beach, 561-381-9970, Mission: To execute thoughtfully sourced sustainable food in a neighbor-hood restaurant.

Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; 561-833-5691 or For nearly 66 years, Howleys has been the go-to place for movers, shakers and hipsters. Club owner Rodney Mayo and his team revamped the place about a decade ago and jazzed the menu up „ the crab cakes are one of lifes great pleasures. But in their gussying up of the place, they chose to honor its roots as a 1950s restaurant, restoring terrazzo floors, refurbishing the bar and installing retro booths and chairs. It doesnt get much cooler than that. 2 GREEN’S PHARMACY151 N. County Road, Palm Beach; 561-832-4443. President Kennedy liked to lunch at Greens. In fact, the whole notion of going to the drugstore soda foun-tain for sandwiches and other comfort fare harkens back to another, gentler time, not unlike what JFK and his family „ or yours or mine, for that matter „ would have known in just about any town across the country. You can drop off your prescriptions, order a shake, sit back and remember another world, then return to this one refreshed and nourished. 3 CITY DINER3400 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; 561-659-6776 or George Hamilton has been known to frequent City Diner, and weve seen Steven Tyler of Aerosmith fame there, too. And heres why: Chef Richard Kline knows his way around soups and sauces „ his tomato bisque always delights with its fresh tomato zing and creamy base. City Diner has all the classics „ where else do they make the egg salad to order? „ Scott Simmons COURTESY PHOTOThe lunch counter at Green’s Pharmacy looks much as it did decades ago. SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYHowley’s has operated continuously since 1950 on South Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach. It retains many 1950s touches, both in decor and cuisine.

Art Palm Beach arrives in January, followed by Februarys Palm Beach Jewelry, Art & Antique Show and Palm Beach Fine Craft Show. All attract collectors, dealers and designers from across the country and around the world to browse the beauty and brave a buy. Its a short-lived season,Ž said Gene Oakes, director of the Palm Beach Art, Antique & Design Center, a new public gallery on North Dixie High-way in Lake Worth. Here, its season year-round.Ž The 25,000-square-foot center provides permanent exhibit space for such vaunted vendors as Londons Butchoff Antiques, Red Fox Fine Art, of Middleburg, Va., and Washington D.C.s Sands of Time Ancient Art.

FLORIDA WEEKLY AUGUST 2017 LUXE LIVING 5COVER STORY Palm Beach Show Group opened the center in November after gutting the building that used to house its offices and replicating a miniature version of its signature Palm Beach Jewelry, Art & Antique Show. Booths range in size from 6 feet by 24 feet to 18 feet by 28 feet and are curated by the dealers. They want their own presence and their own look,Ž Mr. Oakes said. They are in it for a year.Ž Booths are rented on an annual basis, and although the time for renewing them has not yet occurred, it appears many dealers will. One month after being open, space sold out,Ž Mr. Oakes said. The inviting inventory includes French furniture preserved to per-fection. A mahogany table from the early 20th century shines chatoyantly in Ocean Fine Arts booth, while a mid-19th-century buffets gold leaf glimmers in The Art of Time Gallerys booth.

6 LUXE LIVING AUGUST 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYTHE LUXE PROFILE Big ‘D’ Grafix adds wow factor to walls BY AMY WOODSawoods@” oridaweekly.comHis heart is as big as his art. The Riviera Beach resident whose large-scale work appears in homes from South Beach to New Jersey to California makes a habit out of paying it forward. During a recent interview, he recog-nized a woman he used to work with standing in line at Panera Bread. She was getting soup for some-one in the hospital. He insisted on picking up the tab. I want to give back,Ž said Demetrius McCray, owner of Big DŽ Grafix. I like for a person I engage with to have a bet-ter day than they were having before.Ž Mr. McCray counts his blessings, especially since suffering a stroke from which he still is recovering. Five months ago, he couldnt walk, had trouble mov-ing his right hand and slurred his speech. Today, he is painting again. Im back to doing my artwork,Ž he said. Its by the grace of God that I am walking and talking.Ž Mr. McCray spent two weeks at St. Marys Medical Center undergoing treatment and therapy at the hospitals Comprehensive Stroke Center. He regu-larly attends monthly Stroke Survivor and Caregiver Support Group meetings there. My goal by the end of the year is to do a mural for the stroke wing, just to encourage others who have had a stroke that, hey, you can do it, you can get past this,Ž he said. Mr. McCrays most-recent project had him painting a childrens bedroom in a West Palm Beach home. The boy, a sports fan, wanted Steph Curry, the two-time MVP-winning point guard for the Golden State Warriors, dribbling a basketball down the wall. Im always a fan of letting the kids watch me so they can ask questions,Ž said the husband, father and grandfa-ther. I like to communicate with kids because you never know whether youre going to shape their life in a direction they want to go.Ž Mr. McCrays life was shaped by his father Herman McCray, who founded McCrays Backyard BBQ in 1977 on Old Dixie Highway between 27th and 28th streets. My dad used to always say, Its admirable to grow up and get a job, but its more admirable to provide one,Ž Mr. McCray recalled. The commercial-art major at the University of Louisville opened Big DŽ Grafix in 1992. His business employees a team of five that not only produces murals but also faux finishes, logos, signs and T-shirts. His artistry is fea-tured in more than 80 Palm Beach County schools Ive done walls, gym floors, mascots,Ž Mr. McCray said. You name it, Ive done it for the district.Ž His masterpieces originate on a Toshiba laptop „ Im always on the move, so I just kind of work wherever Im atŽ „ that runs CorelDRAW „ I stick with what I know.Ž His studio on Commercial Street houses a 54-inch HP printer. Murals are a big part of my business,Ž Mr. McCray said. I would estimate 60 percent.Ž One such mural graces the stairwell of a 6,500-square-foot Wellington estate and is titled The Creation.Ž It replicates Michelangelos Creation of Adam,Ž with God, shown inside a floating nebu-lous surrounded by angels, reaching out to a lackadaisically lounging Adam. It was challenging,Ž Mr. McCray said. We had to set up scaffolding.Ž The South Florida native schooled at Allamanda Elementary, John F. Kennedy Middle and Suncoast Community High started drawing at the age of 3. I used to draw on my desk,Ž Mr. McCray said. I would draw on the walls at home. I took art classes. I just loved it.Ž He sold his first painting to a woman his mother-in-law knew and got $500 for it. A light turned on in my head,Ž Mr. McCray said. She bought five more paintings from me after that.Ž Big DŽ Grafix was born. I make a decent living,Ž Mr. McCray said. The best thing about it is I have a passion for it. I really wouldnt want to be doing anything else.Ž He travels the world for inspiration and has been to Aruba, Dubai, France, Jamaica and Mexico, as well as Vatican City to see the Sistine Chapel. When you visit these places, you get a lot more respect for the painters who were creating things way back when and mixing their own paint,Ž Mr. McCray said. Today, we can walk into a store and buy all that stuff.Ž His arsenal includes acrylics, enamels, latexes and oils applied with air-brushes, rags, sponges and traditional bristles. I use hard lines when hard lines are needed, and I use airbrushing for soft spaces,Ž Mr. McCray said. Our signa-ture saying is, We leave our mark. We joke amongst each other whether were wasting paint or whatever, but we leave our mark.Ž Q „ Reach Big DŽ Grafix at 561-5021917 or PHOTOS Demetrius McCray at work on a mural.

GETAWAY FLORIDA WEEKLY LUXE LIVING 7Vero Beach’s allure intensifies in summertime BY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@” oridaweekly.comTruth is, Im up for a Vero Beach getaway anytime of the year. Summer is especially appealing to me, however, because travelers can cash in special hotel savings. One of them can be found at Costa d Este, the seaside boutique hotel owned by music legends Gloria and Emilio Estefan. You can save 15 percent of rates, get break-fast for two, a $25 resort credit to use during your stay and even a complimentary mojito. Stay two nights or more at Kimpton Vero Beach Hotel & Spa, just north of Costa dEste, and you can get a $100 resort credit (through Sept. 30). Both resorts are dog-friendly, a perk much appreciated by Katy, the tail-wagging Chihuahua who often travels with me. Between the two resorts is the 1930s Driftwood Inn and Waldos Restaurant, an older property on the National Register of Historic Places. Rooms start at $130. All three offer picturesque views of Veros sunrises, always worth waking up early to see. The view is good from several oceanside restaurants, too, where you can dine al fresco while enjoying the balmy sea breezes. One of my favorites is Citrus Grillhouse, with Mediterraneanand Italian-inspired dishes. Another popular spot for lunch or dinner is the Ocean Grill, an Old Florida-style seafood and steakhouse restaurant known for its precarious perch over the ocean. A landmark, the building thats home to the Ocean Grill was built by entrepreneur Waldo Saxton, but didnt become a restau-rant until 1941. In the 1920s, Saxton took a brawny team of mules to clear the right-of-way for A1A from the Sebastian Inlet to the south county line. He also cleared the road to the Ocean Grill. After guests have had enough of the beach (can you ever get enough of the beach?), Vero has much to see and do. One of my favorite attractions is McKee Botani-cal Garden, a favorite stomping grounds for locals and tourists since 1932, when Cleveland industrialist Arthur McKee and his partner Waldo Sexton (yup, the same fellow who built the Ocean Grill) designed it. Back then, it was called McKee Jungle Gardens, home to lions, tigers, elephants and monkeys. The critters are long gone, but visitors who follow winding paths through the 18 acres can see 100 varieties of water lilies and more than 10,000 species of plants and trees. To see more than 3,000 species of plants and animals, take a kayak or paddleboard trip through the Indian River Lagoon, the most biodiverse lagoon ecosystem in the northern hemisphere. Dont be surprised if a dolphin swims by to say hello. If Spanish fleets and sunken treasures intrigue you, youll want to know that last year $4.5 million in gold from the 1715 treasure fleet was found off the shores of Vero Beach. Want to know about how they did it? Plan to visit McLarty Treasure Museum at Sebastian Inlet State Park. Youll find weap-ons, coins and tools salvaged from the fleet of Spanish ships that sunk offshore during the 1715 storm. Another spot not to miss is Mel Fishers Treasure Museum, where youll find more authentic shipwreck treasures and one-of-kind jewelry. Travelers will want to save some time to shop. From unique boutiques to upscale shops, opportunities for retail therapy abound. Check out shops along Ocean Drive, Village Shops on Route A1A, The World Bazaar & Antique Mall, the Vero Beach Outlets or downtown Vero.
