People served up its history and its fancies together with its pig and peas, its grits and tomatoes, its churches and schools. People watered from the same well, taught from the same books, poured the same sweet tea from the same big pitcher. But none of them are the same. There is no one Southerner, Ive learned, except in this: On a sunny day, their shadows stretch straight into their histories. More than the rest of us, perhaps, Southerners carry that burden. To be shadowed by history is usually to be burned and branded by it. And at this unfortunate American juncture, South-erners en masse „ educated or not, trav-eled or not, prepared for this moment or not „ have yet again been handed the most difficult of human tasks: First, to confront their shadows. And for white Southerners in particular, to dissolve the myths and icons of their beloved parents and grandparents, their teachers and pastors, without surrendering their love of the same complicated people. Thats a torturous demand for any. Its also an opportunity of sorts „ in my view the only great gift offered to the South, and to the American people, by the current president and his allies. However unwittingly, President Trump has resurrected a painful debate about American character, values and race that offers all of us, but Southerners in particular, a chance to embrace what is true by seeing clearly what is false (as many have long since done). The truth of our history is evident to any who read, and even to those willing to listen to any who read „ and who have the courage to acknowledge it. It goes something like this: The Founding Fathers led the colonial revolt from King George III because Americans had been made tax slaves of the British empire, as they saw it. So they hammered out the frame of a dream that would take another two centuries to realize under law, a dream encapsulated in five words: All men are created equal.ŽHowever flawed those first United States citizens were „ some of them slave owners „ their writings strongly suggest they viewed slavery, a practice dating from 1619 in America, as morally reprehensible.The Civil War began in April 1861, after 11 Southern states seceded, insist-ing each state should have the right to enshrine a single institution in law: slav-ery, at that moment more than 250 years old in America. Some insist the war was foremost a battle over economic freedom and states rights. To the extent those condi-tions relied on Africans kidnapped and sold into slavery, theyre right. Lincoln and his Congress aimed to outlaw slavery in five border states (Mary-land, Delaware, West Virginia, Kentucky and Missouri), along with any new ones to come along, opening a door to the demise of slavery by vote, not blood. A house divided against itself cannot stand,Ž Mr. Lincoln said, predicting that either slavery would finally be abolished in whole, or it would become standard-issue in the 86-year-old nation. At the time, the South included about 5.5 million free citizens and 3.5 million slaves, the property of a small cadre of wealthy Southerners selling cotton, tobacco and rice. Their agriculture, their opulence and their lifestyles depended entirely on slaves. Slavery, therefore „ with its inherent kidnappings, murders, rapes, beatings, and the physical destruction of families whose members were sold away „ was a big-engine money-maker for wealthy white Southerners. It was also undeni-ably the major cause of the Civil War. Our new government was founded on slavery,Ž declared Alexander Ste-phens of Georgia, the vice president under Jefferson Davis. Its foundations are laid, its cornerstone rests, upon the great truth that the Negro is not equal to the White Man; that slavery, submission to the superior race, is his natural and normal condition.Ž In the bloodshed that would immediately follow, 620,000 soldiers died, including almost 260,000 Southerners. Total casualties on both sides amounted to more than 1.12 million. The profound consequence of that grotesque eruption for all Americans did not end in 1865 with Robert E. Lees sur-render at Appomattox. It did not end 99 years later in 1964, with the Civil Rights Act. Instead, it continues to rear its ugly head today, a terrible stain stepped back out of the shadows. For that reason, those people are laughable who insist that nobody alive today was a slave and nobody alive today owned slaves,Ž so blacks (and whites) should just get over their whiny anger: anger at the proud apologists for Dixie battle flags; anger at statues idoliz-ing Confederate leaders in public places rather than remembering them soberly at historic sites and museums; and espe-cially anger at those who gather in public to sport Nazi symbols, Klan parapherna-lia and guns. In effect, such contemporary racebaiters „ many who know nothing about the South and come from somewhere else „ are shouting fire in a theater, to use the great metaphor employed by Supreme Court Justice Olive Wendell Homes, Jr. in defining the limits of free speech. Justice Holmes, wounded three times, saw some of the bloodiest fighting of the war as a young man. So we come to this: To the urgent need now to see our history for what it is, and to champion the truth by fully acknowledging it. Some of the bravest and most determined moralists Ive ever known are Southerners, black and white. If theyre any indication, and if they have anything to do with it, the country is going to get a lot healthier in the next few years. Im betting on them. Its the haters I dont understand. Q It’s time to mothball Confederate monuments Robert E. Lee wasnt a Nazi, and surely would have had no sympathy for the white supremacist goons who made his statue a rallying point in Charlottesville, Va. That doesnt change the fact that his statue is now associated with a campaign of racist violence against the picturesque town where Thomas Jefferson founded the University of Virginia. The statue of Lee was already slated for removal by the city, but the Battle of Charlottesville should be an inflection point in the broad-er debate over Confederate statuary. The monuments should go. Some of them simply should be trashed; others transmitted to museums, battlefields and cemeteries. The heroism and losses of Confederate soldiers should be com-memorated, but not in everyday public spaces where the monuments are flash-points in poisonous racial contention, with white nationalists often mustering in their defense. Some discrimination is in order. Theres no reason to honor Jefferson Davis, the blessedly incompetent president of the Confederacy. New Orleans just sent a statue of him to storage „ good riddance. Maryland had a statue of Chief Justice Roger Taney, the author of the monstrous Dred Scott decision that helped precipi-tate the war. The state decided to quietly and swiftly remove Taneys statue one night last week. Robert E. Lee, on the other hand, is a more complicated case. He was no great friend of slavery. After the war, he accepted defeat and did his part to pro-mote national healing. Yet, faced with a momentous choice at the start of the war, he decided he was a Virginia patriot rather than an American nationalist. I look upon secession as anarchy,Ž Lee said. If I owned the 4 million slaves in the South I would sacrifice them all to the Union; but how can I draw my sword upon Virginia, my native state?Ž He betrayed the U.S. government and fought on the side devoted to preserving chattel slavery. That is a grievous political sin, although he obviously wasnt the only one guilty of it. The Civil War was an America conflict, with Americans on both sides. An honorable soldier, Lee is an apt symbol for the Confederate rank and file whose sacri-fices in the wars charnel house shouldnt be flushed down the memory hole. The Baltimore commission has called for moving a striking dual statue of Lee and Stonewall Jackson to the Chancel-lorsville, Va., battlefield. This would take a page from Gettysburg, where a statue of Lee overlooks the field where Gen. George Pickett undertook his doomed charge. If you cant honor Robert E. Lee there, you cant honor him anywhere. For some of the left, thats the right answer, but this unsparing attitude rejects the generosity of spirit of the two great heroes of the war, Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant. Notably, Grant vehe-mently opposed trying Lee for treason. Lee himself opposed building Confederate monuments in the immediate after-math of the war. I think it wiser,Ž he said, not to keep open the sores of war, but to follow the examples of those nations who endeavoured to obliterate the marks of civil strife and to commit to oblivion the feelings it engendered.Ž After Charlottes-ville, its time to revisit his advice.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 24-30, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESTick tactics BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickIn the span of less than a week, I found two ticks on my dog Harper, a cavalier King Charles spaniel. In 25 years of dog ownership, that was a first. We live in Southern California, so ticks are a fact of life, but Harper doesnt typically go into areas where ticks are found. We dont have a yard, and shes not allowed on local hiking trails. I can only surmise that the ticks hitched a ride on me „ ick! „ after a hike and made their way onto Harper.Tick populations are increasing. And there arent just more of them; theyre being found in more places than in the past, says veterinary parasitologist Dr. Susan E. Little of Oklahoma State University. Milder win-ters; more white-tailed deer, which carry the tiny arachnids; and increasing develop-ment in formerly rural areas are among the factors in the ticks spread.Like me, you might never have had to worry about ticks before, but now is a good time to talk to your veterinar-ian about their prevalence in your area. Many tick species have moved out of their original habitats, carried away by migratory birds, coyotes and deer. One or more species of ticks can now be found in every state, including Alaska and Hawaii. Ticks used to be active from spring through fall, but warmer win-ters mean that some species are staying active as late as February, depending on where they are located. Thats bad news, since ticks are major carriers of diseases that affect humans as well as dogs and cats. Most of us are famil-iar with Lyme disease, but ticks also transmit Rocky Mountain spot-ted fever, ehrlichio-sis, babesiosis and Cytauxzoon felis, which infects cats. The ticks that pri-marily transmit these debilitating and some-times deadly diseases are the black-legged tick (Ixodes scapular-is), the Lone Star tick (Amblyomma ameri-canum) and the Amer-ican dog tick (Derma-centor variabilis). Protect yourself and your pets from tick-borne diseases with the following measures:Q Provide all your pets with lifetime parasite control. We always say to treat every pet every month all year long,Ž Dr. Little says. Dogs and cats dont spread tick-borne diseases directly to their owners, but they can acquire diseases from ticks as well as bring ticks into the home or yard. And just because your dog or cat stays mainly indoors or lives in a certain geographic region doesnt mean hes not at risk. Q Ask your veterinarian which ticks and tick-borne diseases are common in your area and which product is best for protecting your animals. The information may have changed since you last learned about ticks. Q Apply tick-prevention products on a regular schedule. Its no longer effective to try to time para-site control to start in spring and stop after the second killing frost. Q Check your dog or cat for ticks any time he has been out-doors. Keep a tick-removal device on hand and know how to use it. Q Make your yard less welcoming to ticks by removing leaf litter, mowing the lawn frequently, keeping landscaping free of tall grass and brush and fenc-ing your yard to prevent incursions by deer and other animals that carry ticks. A three-foot swathe of wood chips or gravel between your lawn and wooded areas wont keep ticks away, but it does serve as a visual reminder that you are entering the tick zone. Q Use insect repellent on yourself, and wear protective clothing. Q After a hike or other outdoor excursion to tick-friendly wooded areas with tall grass, give yourself a cursory exami-nation for the little bloodsuckers, so you dont drive them home to your pets.

BEHIND THE WHEELFrom the dealer to your wallet – the new car battery rouletteIt might seem absurd to write about hybrid and electric vehicles in an era of inexpensive gasoline, but technology and efficiency will keep moving forward no matter the price per gallon. Whether youre a fan of the environment, or just like saving money, efficient vehicles have an appeal in any economy. So, as we approach two decades of hybrids in the mainstream and EVs face their first major hurdle, its good to see how these are changing the automotive landscape. For decades, many manufacturers have included planned obsolescence in their formulas. This is why a car might have a new fascia or added colors. But instead of just revising the styling every year, theyre now offering consumers some genuine substance. It ranges from better safety to additional infotainment. But for this column, well just focus on the efficiency advances of hybrids and electric cars. Car companies are doing a good job of alleviating the initial concerns over bat-tery longevity. The current standard is to offer an eight-year/100,000-mile warranty on battery life. This means the first own-ers (and many cases second owners) have the assurance of protection. But the warranty isnt a full security blanket. As any car gets older there will be deterioration. So dont expect to qual-ify for a replacement if efficiency in year seven doesnt feel like it did on day seven. Volvo recently committed to only selling hybrid gas/electric or full electric vehicles by 2019. Besides being a safety pioneer, its reputation is built on offer-ing Nordic tanks that were hardy enough to circle the globe hundreds of times, literally. A 1966 Volvo P1800 currently holds the record for longevity with over 3 million miles traveled. But that kind of long-term relationship will be tougher to duplicate in 2019 when not every shade tree mechanic will be able to diagnose battery range issues. This situation highlights the larger role dealerships will play as hybrid and EV technology expands. And many are happy to be essential to servicing. Besides warranty and repair work, the local dealer has a ripe opportunity for repeat business. After all, its a convincing argument when telling customers they can invest $1,000 to fix their older vehicle or they can use the same car as a down pay-ment on a new one. And if that sounds alluring, then just imagine how that would feel when facing a $4,500 battery replace-ment on a hybrid past its warranty. In some cases, taking a hybrid in for servicing can feel like visiting the cell phone store. Thats because todays cars are often sold less on their overall price and more on their payments. The added capacity of the newer models will have people ask-ing if the latest technology can fit in their current plan. This is not necessarily the smartest financial strategy (especially for those who want to break a lease.) Still, there are some of us out there willing to pay for the best technology on wheels, and the dealership wants every opportunity to scratch our itch. But what about the old car? That same out-of-warranty hybrid is now pushed into the used car market. There are some new repair shops sprouting up that will replace hybrid car batteries at a lower rate. But this replacement market isnt guaranteed to expand, especially if the service isnt built into the cars value. For instance, right now, a 10-year-old Toyota Prius and Camry in good condi-tion will each cost about $6,000. If know-ing that the Prius hybrid batteries are out of warranty and even an aftermarket replacement will be a few thousand dol-lars, which used car really has the most long-term appeal? Remember, we are using the hybrid car example. These have been around for nearly two decades. Mainstream fully electric vehicles, like the Nissan Leaf, have only been with us for about seven years. That car offered from the start the lengthy 8-year/100,000…mile battery war-ranty. So, there are many Leafs about to cross the threshold into a new frontier of zero assurance. Nissan already offers replacement batteries for those who have experienced loss thats not great enough to trigger the warranty, and that seems to range between $4,500-$6,500. True to the mod-ern fashion, it can be built into a payment plan. The appeal is that since there are fewer moving parts to deteriorate in an EV, replacing the battery often creates a nearly-new car feeling. But this is a substitution, not an upgrade, so it doesnt bring a 2011 car up to the long range 2017 standards. One car that has seemed to skip any definition is the Chevrolet Volt. Its a plug-in electric vehicle with gasoline-powered range extender. It cannot be called a full EV and GM doesnt like calling it a hybrid. But this in-between vehicle is programmed not to charge its battery to full capacity. It creates less stress, and as a result, these first examples that are begin-ning to age out of all warranties often show less battery loss. Fans of efficient vehicles might feel that most of this writing is unfairly tax-ing hybrids and electric vehicles without highlighting the upshot. Unfortunately, it would take the full page just to list the environmental and cost benefits, and its assumed that a savvy consumer is already aware of them. In fact, this is just meant to remind people to do their full research. Hybrids and EV are working outside of the traditional system. The car companies are learning, adapting, and improving … and the aftermarket isnt far behind. But now that theyve finally been with us long enough to feel conventional, we need to know how to play battery roulette when kicking the tires. Q myles KORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

A10 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 24-30, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYof her marriage to Henry Morrison Fla-gler. July 27 marked the 100th anniver-sary of her death. After Flagler died in 1913, Mary Lily resumed her youthful affair with Robert Worth Bingham of Louisville, Ky. They married in November 1916. Lonely in a strange city, Mary Lily became increas-ingly ill. Her husbands doctor gave her enough morphine to ensure an addiction „ useful leverage to parlay for Binghams agenda, which was to keep her totally pacifiedŽ until she agreed to add his name to her will, according to Stuart B. McIver, author of Murder in the Tropics.Ž She fainted in her bathtub, had convulsions and then died suddenly after eight months of marriage. She later was hastily exhumed „ at midnight, no less „ for a secret autopsy, the results of which remain unseen. Would Mary Lily see the irony of characters material to the above sequence having founded the Order of the Gimghouls at the University of North Carolina? Or that midnight, graves and weirdnessŽ were the secret societys watchwords? William Rand Kenan Jr. and Rob Bingham were close friends and were Gimghouls. That order, founded in 1889, centers itself on the legend of Peter Dromgoole, a student who mysteriously disappeared from campus in 1833. Its believed to be a social organization. Would Mary Lily wonder whether her brother sealed that report as much for good ol boy loyalty as to protect the family name? Given that she was dead, the Kenans inherited about $95 million, and Bingham was floating blackmail „ did the family pocket their gauntlet to bury a scandal? Breathless wags fell into a fresh froth over salacious secrets and whispers of murder after a New York headline: MRS. BINGHAM WAS DRUGGED!Ž The North Carolina roots of both families ran in a deep political divide. The Kenans arrived in the Colonies in the 1760s. A general fought in the Amer-ican Revolution, and Kenans helped to found UNC at Chapel Hill. These plant-ers and merchants owned Cape Fear River acreage handy for selling tim-ber. Their social swath rippled outward from a Kenansville plantation. The Binghams arrived in the 1780s and established The Bingham School. A headmaster taught languages at UNC. The early clans sparred in a Colonial mirror: patriots vs. royalists. Both fami-lies owned slaves and some Binghams were abolitionists „ a parallel run-up to the Civil War. Robert Worth Bingham was the fourth generation to attend UNC, although the Kenans blackballed many on political principle. The author McIver said a classmate called Rob the social lion of our day.Ž A womanizer, ne lady-killer,Ž he later enrolled at the University of Virginia. At a dance in 1890, Handsome met Voluptuous and the rest is history and tragedy. Mary Lily told The New Ber-nian the two had an affair that year, an exercise involving hormones and youth-ful rebellion over their family feud. Seeing few acceptable suitors for their eldest daughter, her parents arranged invitations to promising social stages such as Newport, R.I. Their Wilmington buddy, Pembroke Jones, hosted her there in 1891, where his friend, railroad tycoon Henry Walters, introduced Mary Lily to his friend, railroad tycoon Henry Flagler. She was 23. Flagler was 60 and married, yet their mutual interest was so strong, he plotted a way to discard his mentally unstable wife, Ida Alice. After testimony about Ida Alices Ouija boards message of a Russian czar lover „ and her attempt to stab her doctor with scissors „ the amenable Florida Legislature passed a law making insan-ity grounds for divorce. In Louisville, Bingham married Eleanor Miller, pursued law and politics, became a judge, and piled up debts. Per McIver, Arrogance and shady deals doomed his first efforts at politics,Ž and his mother-in-law frowned on his improprieties in the handling of collat-eralŽ for a family business. Mary Lily and Henry met as circumstances permitted. Around 1896, he demonstrated his devotion with a gift of $1 million in Standard Oil stock. Born the previous year, a possible love child,Ž Mary Lou-ise, was raised as the daughter of Mary Lilys married sister, Jessie Wise, and society accepted the feint. In Across Fortunes Tracks: A Biography of Wil-liam Rand Kenan Jr.,Ž author Walter E. Campbell cited reports that Louise was not Wises daughter, but the illegiti-mate offspringŽ of Mary Lily Kenan and Henry Flagler. Another author, William E. Ellis, refers to the couple having kept company with each other for several years, none too secretly,Ž and of Mary Lily having lived with and then mar-ried Flagler.Ž Weeks after Henrys 1901 divorce, they married in Kenansville. During a dozen happy years, she shared his triumphs. In April 1913, Binghams wife committed suicide by leaping from a moving car at a railroad crossing. Three weeks later, Flagler died of complications from a fall. His widow, 46, inherited about $100 million and a seat at the table of Standard Oil. Binghams anxious creditors suggested he visit his former lover. Thus motivated, he tracked her to Asheville and rekindled the old dalliance. They married in New York City, ironically at the home of Pem and Sarah Jones. Her only attendant was Louise Wise, whom Mary Lily had publicly named as heir to the bulk of the Flagler fortune. Suddenly, the vibrant Mrs. Bingham was complaining of chest pains. Instead of calling in a heart specialist, Bingham recruited his friend and dermatologist, Dr. Michael Leo Ravitch. They moved Mary Lily to a hotel, where Ravitch treated her with frequent injections of morphine, wrote Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author David L. Chan-dler, in The Binghams of Louisville: The Dark History Behind One of Amer-icas Great Fortunes.Ž At one point, William Davies, Binghams lawyer and fellow Gimghoul, oversaw Mary Lilys signature altering her will to give the judge $5 million upon her death. Bingham brought Mary Lily home, where his houseguest Ravitch ramped up morphine doses, McIver wrote. Even after she was unconscious in her bathtub, she received morphine. Her body contained the opiate in abundance, plus traces of adrenaline and arsenic. Newspapers reported acute heart disturbance.Ž Rumors suggested murder, complicity, her husbands reprehensible behav-ior and shouts of malpractice toward Ravitch. In House of Dreams: The Binghams of Louisville,Ž author Marie Brenner was even-handed. Lacking conclusive evidence that Bingham actually mur-dered Mary Lily, the events of her first and only year in Louisville leave little doubt that the Judge was dangerously irresponsible toward a very sick woman ...Ž Bingham pointed some sharp arrows at the Kenans, who didnt cotton to los-ing $5 million. They were suspicious at the cause of death, yet appalled when the judge mentioned his wifes taste for brandy and bourbon. Shepard Bryan, another Gimghoul, was Robs liaison in those discussions. The Kenans contested Mary Lilys will, hired detectives and arranged for the secret autopsy, recruiting patholo-gists from three cities to collect tissue samples. A 1987 article in the Los Angeles Times, with the headline Ghastly Drama,Ž cited their mission. They arrived at the Wilmington cemetery in curtained limousines at midnight and departed hastily to catch a train. The Kenans abruptly dropped their challenges and locked away the evi-dence. The ensuing tabloid frenzy grew volcanic by the 1980s, when Crown Publishing Group released Chandlers book. He wrote that Mary Lily probably died of complications from tertiary syphilis, and likely got it from Bingham after he contracted it in college. In that era, der-matologists treated syphilis „ one reason Bingham did not call in a cardiologist. Ravitch, an expert in treating syphilis, also was the judges go-to doctor. In July 1918, the judge used the first installment of his inheritance to buy the Louisville Courier-Journal and built the newspaper into a journalistic dynas-ty that lasted seven decades. Having gained the favor of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Bingham became ambas-sador to the Court of St. Jamess in 1932. He died five years later of Hodgkins disease and/or syphilis, according to his granddaughter, author Sallie Bingham. Her blog refers to the second autopsy reports conclusion that an overdose of Salvarsan had killed Mary Lily. The potentially deadly Magic BulletŽ then was used to treat syphilis. He killed her, didnt he?Ž Sallie said in her personal campaign for a bit of justice for Mary LilyŽ „ openly critical of the interminable scandal-shielding faade. Emily Bingham, the judges greatgranddaughter, wrote Irrepressible: The Jazz Age Life of Henrietta Bing-hamŽ in homage to her great-aunt. She leaned toward the judges innocence but wrote, Roosevelt himself gleefully called his ambassador my favorite mur-derer.Ž Emily said Ravitch later demanded money, writing the judge, I am really sorry that I ever consented to do for you what I did.Ž Augustus Mayhew browsed Emilys book for any fresh facts on the closely guarded grassy knoll circumstances sur-rounding the cryptic fast-track death of (Mary Lily).Ž A New York Times review in 2015 noted that Mary Lily promptly died under murky, Michael Jackson-esque circumstances involving a shady doctor and copious narcotics.Ž Avowed feminist Sallie Bingham certainly bested the men in the standoff for their newspaper empire. She also railed at generations having sullied the woman whose money enabled their fortune. In her book, Passion & Prejudice: A Family Memoir,Ž Sallie says Bingham bought the newspapers to ferret out other peoples secrets while closely guarding our own. (Mary Lily) died ... of a combination of causes that included depression, neglect and medical incom-petence, the failure of l ove, isolation, and a heart probably weakened by the syphilis she had contracted from the Judge ... She also died because she would not, for a long time, give the man his money.Ž (The judges grandson, WorthŽ Bingham III, died at age 34 in a freak acci-dent in Nantucket. Robert W. Bingham IV died at age 33 of a heroin overdose in his Tribeca loft). Louise Wise, Henry Flaglers favorite niece,Ž inherited Whitehall in Palm Beach, Kirkside in St. Augustine, money and securities. In 1920, Louise and her husband, Lawrence Lewis Sr., named their baby daughter Mary Lily Flagler Lewis and called her Molly. When the trusts in Mrs. Binghams will settled in 1937, Louise set up the Flagler Nursery School for Underprivi-leged Children in St. Augustine. She died that year of a suspected drug overdose. Molly (Mrs. James L. Wiley) at one time was a principal of the company which still owns The Breakers. When she died at age 90, her two sons lived in Virginia.

Breathe easy with new treatment at Jupiter Medical Center Spring and summer can be the most difficult seasons for people who suffer from allergies. The sneezing, wheezing, and shortness of breath can be quite uncomfortable, not to mention frustrat-ing. But imagine if you felt that way all the time. More than 25 million people in the U.S. have asthma, and approximately 5 to 10 percent suffer from severe asthma. It can be a debilitating condition that keeps people away from their favorite activities, and at worst, sends sufferers to the emergency room. Luckily, Jupiter Medical Center is now offering bronchi-al thermoplasty, a procedure approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2010. Jupiter Medical Center is cur-rently the only hospital in Palm Beach and Martin counties that is making this treatment available to patients. As the medical director of Respiratory Services of Jupiter Medical Center, I feel it is important that I stay abreast of any advances in the field of respira-tory health. That is why I took the ini-tiative to learn about this revolutionary treatment. Bronchial thermoplasty is a three-step treatment that works by using controlled radio frequen-cy to heat the airway and, as a result, coagulate the proteins in the smooth muscle fibers that can produce bronchial spasms. The tis-sue then becomes weaker, which lessens its ability to constrict air-flow. This means the patient will no longer have bronchial spasms, reducing the possibility and inten-sity of asthma attacks, and making it much easier for the patient to breathe. Its like taking a muscle relaxer when your back seizes up. The treatment has proven to be quite effective. It generally results in a 32 percent reduction in severe asth-ma attacks, an 84 percent reduction in emergency room visits for respiratory-related symptoms, and 66 percent fewer days lost from work, school and other activities due to asthma symptoms. In fact, I have found that patients often have less need for their asthma medi-cations after completing the full three rounds of the bronchial thermoplasty treatment. I have been extremely happy with the results of the treatment that I have seen in my patients. One individual who has undergone the treatment is Linda Scrivener „ a patient since 2004. Linda is a severe asthmatic. She has experienced a litany of upper respiratory problems and also has an immune deficiency disorder. I first corrected her immune suppression and treated her with all available asthma medications. She was healthy for many years after that, but early this year she began to get sick again. The disease brought on by her asthma was not getting better because of her immune deficiency dis-order. Thats when I decided bronchial thermoplasty would be the best option for Linda. After completing the three rounds of treatment and taking time to recover, Linda is feeling better than she has in a long time. Since the last procedure, she has been stronger, her breathing is better, and she is engaging in activities that she has not been able to do in years, including lunch dates with friends, going to evening theatre performances and taking 2.5-mile daily walks. Linda was a big hit at Jupiter Medical Center „ she even received thank-you notes from our nursing staff for her kindness. We will miss her around the hospital, but we are thrilled she is home and feeling her best. After all, our goal is to get you back to your normal daily life as soon as possible. Bronchial thermoplasty has made a significant impact on Lin-das quality of life, and I recom-mend it as a possible treatment option. Talk to your doctor about bron-chial theromoplasty if: Q You have been diagnosed with extreme asthma; Q Your asthma medications are not working; Q Your asthma keeps you from enjoying your preferred quality of life. When it comes to your asthma, the Jupiter Medical Center team wants you to breathe easy. Speak to your doctor to see if bronchial thermoplasty is right for you.

After all, Mr. Servideo, a private chef, is a patient at FoundCare himself and has been since 2011 when he lost his job abruptly and found himself without health insurance. Thats when Mr. Servideo turned to FoundCare (www.foundcare.org), a fed-erally qualified nonprofit health center in Palm Springs, for the medical care. During a routine checkup, a doctor discovered a large blood clot in Mr. Ser-videos leg. It could have been fatal, but the FoundCare physicians were able to take care of me and heal my clotŽ he said. As payback, I do as much as I can for FoundCare.Ž As board president, an elected position with a three-year term, Mr. Ser-video can bring his own life experiences to the volunteer position. He under-stands the needs. He was, for example, instrumental in creating a pharmacy for the facility, allowing FoundCare to serve as a one-stop shopŽ for patients medi-cal services. FoundCare patients like Mr. Servideo keep coming back, not only for the affordable rates (patients pay on a slid-ing scale depending on what they can afford), but the standard of care is very high,Ž he said. In addition, Mr. Servideo said, its immaculately clean, the staff is bilingual and the staff is well-trained and cheer-ful. Everybody is treated equally, youre not just a number.Ž As a private chef, Mr. Servideo makes gourmet meals in clients homes. He donated his time and talent to Found-Cares benefit gala, A Votre Sante,Ž by offering his chef services as an auction item. The private dinners, including food and preparation, sold for between $1,000 and $1,200. Occasionally, he gives talks on nutrition at the center, too. My career as a chef stems from my love of good food,Ž the Lake Worth resident said. I view cooking as a kind of alchemy. I can transform a few simple ingredients such as flour, eggs and ricotta, into ravioli. For me its a magical process. And growing up in an Italian-American family, food was very impor-tant not only for nutrition but also for its social aspects. I have had several clients who required special diets because of medi-cal conditions,Ž he said. I am a great believer that a balanced diet is medi-cine. Its great to be paid well for some-thing that I enjoy doing.Ž FoundCares Health Centers, with sites in Palm Springs and North Palm Beach, offer pediatric and adult prima-ry care, chronic disease management, behavioral health services, laboratory work and X-rays, and an on-site pharma-cy. The centers accept most insurance plans, Medicaid, Medicare, and self-pay on a sliding fee scale that is based on household size and income. Last year, FoundCare served 14,933 unduplicated patients, approximately half of whom were uninsured. John Anthony ServideoAge: 68 Hometown: Boston Where I live now: Lake Worth Education: Degree in Culinary Arts and Sciences from Florida Culinary Institute (now Lincoln Culinary Insti-tute). What brought me to Florida: I moved to Florida in 1994 because my parents had retired here. They were get-ting older and I wanted to be close by in case they needed me. Also, I was fed up with the harsh New England winters. My job now: During the Palm Beach season, I work as a freelance private/personal chef. I also work part-time for Publix in the seafood department. First job: My first job as an adult was for a publishing company in Boston (Allyn & Bacon). It was known as the training grounds because of the low salaries and poor treatment of employ-ees. I stayed there for two years, learned everything I could by accepting projects that were difficult, low-budget, or need-ed to be completed quickly. I learned that hard work (eventually) pays off. I learned too the value of recognizing and taking advantage of unexpected opportunities. Career highlight: I get great satisfaction when my food is served at a dinner party and all conversation stops. But the highlight of my career as a private chef occurred when I overheard one guest say to the host and hostess, The food here is better than at The Breakers.Ž Hobbies: I am an avid reader. I especially enjoy biographies. I am an arm-chair archeologist; I particularly like reading about Mayan, Roman and Egyp-tian civilizations. Whenever I can, I travel to Italy to explore new places and discover new recipes that I can reproduce at home. I am in the process of writing a cookbook about Italian-American family cooking. Best advice: Work hard, learn as much as possible, never be satisfied with second best and always be aware of and take advantage of good oppor-tunities. About mentors: Several of my teachers made sure that I understood the value of studying hard and always striving to do my best. From my parents, I learned the value of loyalty to family and friends and that material posses-sions are not the key to happiness.

Its not just snowbirds. Other visitors also are flocking to The Palm Beaches. The area experienced recordbreaking half-year visitation for 2017, reported Discover The Palm Beaches, the official tourism marketing corpo-ration for Palm Beach County. In 2017, the destination had the highest number of visitors in its his-tory for January through June, with 4.2 million visitors. According to the data research company STR, this represents an 8.7 per-cent increase over 2016. From January through March, The Palm Beach-es had 2.3 million visitors, and 1.94 million visitors from April through June, an 11-percent increase from 2016. Visitation increased by 8 percent to 2.25 million in the first six months of 2017, with Discover The Palm Beaches advertising within nine target mar-kets. The markets with the most growth include Washington, D.C. (up 18 percent), New York (up 13 percent), Chicago (an increase of 11 percent) and Philadelphia (up by 10 percent). The number of business travelers increased by 12.8 percent, with Dis-cover The Palm Beaches contracting with 46 percent more groups and meetings room nights from January to June 2017. Jorge Pesquera, president and CEO for Discover The Palm Beaches, said the organization has increased aware-ness in traditional and emerging mar-kets. He credits its new Friends Trust FriendsŽ marketing campaign and the companys new website, which was recognized by Skift as one of the best tourism board websites in the world. This industry spurs economic growth, creates more jobs, and helps to improve the quality of life for all of us,Ž Mr. Pesquera said.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 24-30, 2017 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE A13 BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@” oridaweekly.comLOT OF PEOPLE, MOST OF THEM from somewhere other than DeSoto County, think ranching and its proudest offspring sport „ rodeoing „ have gone the way of Cracker cowboy Bone Mizell (1863 to 1921, may he rest in peace at a full gallop). Or the great western artist Frederick Remington (1861 to 1909, may he rethink his opinion of Crackers). Remington once drew Mr. Mizell slouched in his saddle, probably half-drunk, and declared he didnt much like Florida Crackers because they were no-account.Those people would be wrong, just like Mr. Remington was wrong; Mr. Mizell was a skillful rustler and probably a nice guy, drunk or sober. Not only that, but construction is long since underway on the spectacular new Mosaic Rodeo Arena in Arcadia, where the annual March Granddaddy of them all,Ž presented by the nonprofit Arcadia All-Florida Champion-ship Rodeo Inc., will carry out its 90th soiree in a four-day extravaganza of the old cowboy arts, and some new ones. All of that comes courtesy of people who understand how important such arts remain in American culture, and how cru-cial they can be to the economy of a county that is not one of the states wealthiest „ and has been hard hit by citrus canker and other disasters only farmers and ranchers have to face, sometimes. When the rodeo was just a three-day event, it brought $24 million into the local economy, says Katie Marks, executive director. Last year, 18,000 people came to the Granddaddy, some 23 percent from Sarasota County, 18 percent from Lee County, and a slew from outside the region and even from overseas. Now, not only will the rodeo extend to four days beginning next March, but the $9 million arena, bolstered by an initial $3 million donation from the mining com-pany Mosaic, will include almost 8,000 seats, 40 stalls in two barns, at first (more are planned later), and a wide range of state-of-the-art conveniences „ kitchens, indoor and outdoor livestock pens, and much more. And thats just to start with.Our engineers looked at the property and realized we have room for 144 stalls, someday „ well just have to raise the money,Ž says Ms. Marks. Thats what the Arcadia Rodeo is doing now to finish the arena, she notes. Weve raised $6.1 million. Were over half way done, but this isnt a rich community and we need more money.ŽA volunteer outfitArcadia Rodeo Inc. depends on volunteers. Everyone who works the rodeos here is a volunteer,Ž says Ms. Marks. And the main rodeo is just one of 15 events. We have youth rodeos, we have team roping and barrel racing compe-titions, we have the cattlemens ranch rodeoƒ. keep in mind these events are supported (with volunteers) by 4H, the FFA, the Boy Scouts, our local high school bands, all of them.Ž The Mosaic Arena is also a monument to a community-wide effort that any region in America might envy. For one thing, Arcadia Rodeo Inc. has only two paid employees: Ms. Marks and her assistant. Extra monies go to area charities, to scholarships for students, to opportunities for everybody in the com-munity. For another thing, the donor list represents many walks of life in the region. Naming donors include Ben Hill Griffin Inc., Doyle and Debbie Carlton III, the Wil-liam G. KayoŽ Wells family and Terry and Susie Welles. Others include banks, ranches and farms, foundations, construction compa-nies, developers, health-care companies and many individuals, some offering gifts in memory of a loved one who might have appre-ciated rodeo. The dream of such an arena isnt new in Arcadia. It began, recalls Ms. Marks, when Hur-ricane Charley hit the town and the tra-ditional arena like a breakaway bull 13 years ago this month. That required a big community effort to repair the old arena, which has hosted rodeos again for years. Plans may be in the works to take down that old arena when the new one is ready „ and thats not a happy thought for everybody. Call me sentimental, but the thought of that hurts my soul,Ž says Cyndi Skates Widener, office manager at Sweet Cypress Ranch and a seventh generation Floridian. My granddaddy competed there, along with myself, my husband, and all three of our kids.Ž Her daughter, Rachel Widener, won the Florida High School Reined Cow Horse Championship in June.

Q LEARNINGFrom page 1 The headstrong supply and demand imbalances in much of the country slightly tempered the pace of sales and caused home prices to maintain their robust growth in the second quarter, according to the latest quar-terly report by the National Associa-tion of Realtors. The national median existing single-family home price in the second quarter was $255,600, w hich is up 6.2 percent from the second quarter of 2016 ($240,700) and surpasses the third quarter of last year ($241,300) as the new peak quarterly median sales price. The median price during the first quar-ter increased 6.9 percent from the first quarter of 2016. Single-family home prices last quarter increased in 87 percent of mea-sured markets, with 154 out of 178 metropolitan statistical areas showing sales price gains in the second quarter compared with the second quarter of 2016. Twenty-three areas (13 percent) recorded lower median prices from a year earlier. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says home prices in most metro areas continued their fast ascent in the sec-ond quarter because supply remained at pitiful levels. The 2.2 million net new jobs created over the past year gener-ated significant interest in purchasing a home in what was an extremely com-petitive spring buying season,Ž he said. Listings typically flew off the market in under a month „ and even quicker in the affordable price range „ in several parts of the country. With new supply not even coming close to keeping pace, price appreciation remained swift in most markets. The glaring need for more new home construction is creating an affordability crisis that needs to be addressed by policy officials and local governments.Ž At the end of the second quarter, there were 1.96 million existing homes available for sale, which was 7.1 percent below the 2.11 million homes for sale at the end of the second quarter in 2016. The average supply during the second quarter was 4.2 months „ down from 4.6 months in the second quarter of last year. Last quarter, a rise in the national family median income ($71,529) was not enough to offset weaker affordability from the combination of higher mort-gage rates compared to a year ago and rising home prices. To purchase a single-family home at the national median price, a buyer mak-ing a 5 percent down payment would need an income of $56,169, a 10 per-cent down payment would require an income of $53,213, and $47,300 would be needed for a 20 percent down payment. Existing-home sales in the South dipped 3.0 percent in the second quar-ter but are 2.5 percent higher than the second quarter of 2016. The median existing single-family home price in the South was $229,400 in the second quarter, 6.7 percent above a year earlier.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 24-30, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY COLLECTORS CORNER A mix of pastel-hued memories of Florida in the ’50s scott SIMMONS ssimmons@floridaweekly.com Bought: Noahs Ark Helping Pets Inc., 824 Belvedere Road, West Palm Beach; 561-833-8131. Paid: $45 The Skinny: I have found the Holy Grail of kitchen appliances. Or so you would think, based on the text I received from my friend and colleague Jan Norris, the noted food writer: OMG! Where and how much?Ž she responded to a photo I sent her. I will be glad to double your money.Ž THE FIND:An early 1950s pink Sunbeam Mixmaster stand mixer I love the 1950s „ at least when it comes to the California ranch-style houses that Michigan Homes built in our Rainbow Groves neighborhood in Fort Myers. Most have been altered, but when I was a boy, they were painted in pastels and jewel tones „ pale greens, shell pinks, turquoise and yellow. It was posi-tively pretty. Anyone who has driven along McGregor Boulevard or driven through the neighborhoods of Tanglewood or Morse Shores, also in Fort Myers, has seen homes by Michigan. Ross was the big builder of similar homes in the Palm Beaches „ think of all those 1,200to 1,800-square-foot houses you see around Forest Hill Bou-levard and Olive Avenue in West Palm Beach or along Park Avenue in Lake Park. Those are Ross homes. They were modest, but well built. Sixty years later, they stand the test of time. I remember being parked in a high chair in my grandparents yellow kitch-en. Grandma stood at the yellow GE cooktop heating up Campbells toma-to soup and grilling a Velveeta sand-wich (they called it toasted cheeseŽ). The kitchen had a matching GE wall oven. When Grandma baked a cake, she blended the ingredients with a yel-low Hamilton Beach hand mixer my sister now owns. The refrigerator they brought from Indiana was profession-ally painted yellow to match. That post-World War II era was a time of great economic expansion, and my grandparents fit right in, moving to Fort Myers in their mid-40s. Their home remains a beauty. My mom remembers that the quality shone through when the place was new, from the sparkling terrazzo floors to the shiny enamel kitchens and glistening white gravel roofs. Forget the Hoosier cupboards of the past and bulky iron sinks with drain-boards and a curtain to hide the pipes. Built-in was better, designers decided. The cooking spaces were efficient and pretty. One neighbor, Joy Bell, had a pink kitchen, com-plete with a rose-hued fridge. As I remember, my grand-parents next-door neighbors had a turquoise kitchen, replete with a built-in refrigerator „ it seemed the whole neighborhood availed itself of the gas stove in 1960, after Hurricane Donna left the area without power. Hurricanes aside, it was swank.These were the days before shabby was chic. No self-respecting decorator or housewife, for that matter, would have settled for anything less than matching appliances and accessories. My own 1955 kitchen still boasts the original yellow Formica Cracked Ice pattern laminate on its counters and backsplash. When I sanded the cup-board doors, I found traces of the origi-nal matching yellow paint underneath the coats of white. Im sure the appli-ances of the day also matched. What was modern then now is vintage. When I see a 1950s kitchen or its accessories, it takes me back to my youth. After all, is there no finer meal than a toasted Velveeta sandwich served with canned soup that was stirred by the hand of a loving grandmother? Q She didnt know how much I had paid at the time either Of course, I had a similar reaction when I spotted the mixer on the shelf of the thrift store. Truth is, you dont see these pastel mixers of the 1950s very often. Turquoise also is hard to find, and I regret that I left my grandmother Dorothys yellow Mixmaster in her Georgia kitchen „ hey, the truck was FULL. These pink mixers are special. On eBay, they start at around $60 for one with no bowls. This one is missing its small bowl and its juice attachment. But at nearly 70 years old, it still revs up to full speed with no problem. In fact, the only problem I have is finding a proper place to display it. If I cant find one, something tells me a certain food journalist will be acquiring it. Q ANTIQUES Bell toys became popular just after the Civil War BY TERRY AND KIM KOVEL Bell toys, a type of pull toy that had moving parts that rang a bell, were made in America just after the Civil War. The Gong Bell Co. of Connecticut made the first one. It was an iron four-wheel platform, holding a bell and an animal. The animal kicked or hit the bell when the platform moved. A popular bell toy featured an elephant that stepped on the bell to make it ring. The 9-inch-long toy is made of decorated metal. It was estimated to be worth about $800 to $1,200. Later bell toys used wood, tin or other metals and added realistic hair or animal hide. The toys were all painted. The 1880s-1890s were the golden age for the bell toys, and in the 1900s, cop-ies were made of metal and eventually plastic. Today, the bell toys are wood or plastic made by Fisher Price or Play-skool. Q: Is there any way to tell if my pressback dining-room chairs and matching table are vintage or just copies? A: We just learned a new way to spot the reproductions. We knew the old chairs were almost always made of oak. Any other wood would be suspect. But an easier way to tell is that the chairs, made about 1900, had seats made of three or four boards. Later copies usu-ally had about seven boards. Q: My mother was a collector of Wedgwood Jasperware. I inherited it all. Some I plan to keep. I have every-thing from 25-cent-size boxes to three different size Portland vases. Any suggestions on liquidation of this collection? A: How to sell inherited collections is the question we are asked the most. There is no easy answer. Ask yourself what is most important about selling the Wedgwood „ money, your time, the amount of physical labor, enhancing family memories or avoid-ing arguments among heirs. There are companies that take and sell everything to empty a house for a fee or part of the profit. It may be costly, but quick. Inor out-of-town auction companies might be interested in a valuable collec-tion of Wedgwood. Ask col-lector friends whom to call and ask about what they sell and the services that are offered. (Profession-als usually spot any very valuable items and estimate the sale value properly.) No luck? Try the next step, a local shop that will buy your things or take them on consignment. If the dealer has been in business locally, you can get refer-ences and check on honesty. An offer to buy from an unknown companys ad in a newspaper can be risky. Next, run your own sale. It takes time, planning, studying and a knowledge of pricing to sell in a house sale or online. Last try, take everything usable to a thrift store, church sale, charity fundraising show and sale, or nonprofit places. You get a charitable tax deduction, pride in doing a good deed and an end to the problems. Be sure to get advice from someone in the antiques world. You wouldnt get a haircut from someone who just opened a beauty parlor and had no references. Q: I inherited a pink pitcher that has a white-and-black spotted cat climbing on it. Its 10 inches tall. Its marked Erphila Fayence Germany.Ž It was my aunts favorite thing and Im just wondering about it. A: Pottery marked ErphilaŽ was made in Germany and Czechoslovakia and imported by Ebeling & Reuss, a Philadelphia giftware firm. The name is a combination of the letters EŽ and RŽ for Ebeling & Reuss Erphila and Phila,Ž the first letters of Philadelphia. Pitchers like this sell online for about $20. Q: Can an early hard rubber fountain pen be restored? I just found my grandfathers 1920s Waterman 52 pen. Its a mess. A: Restoring a fountain pen takes patience, know-how and talent. We wondered if we could do it, so we got instruc-tions. The cap should be removed, and then the inside parts and the nib, the lever assembly and the pressure bar. (Dont try this if you dont know what these parts look like.) According to experts, you cant clean a hard rubber pen with water. It makes the rubber swell and parts will not fit back inside properly, so use mineral oil. Use metal polish to clean the metal trim. There is more. Get a new ink sac and clean the pres-sure bar with special equipment. Clean the nib. Put everything back together. Test it with ink to be sure it is ready to use or sell. You can find fountain pen information at the Pen Collectors of America website, pencollectorsofamer-ica.com. Many pen-repair services are advertised online. Tip: Never exhibit photographs in direct sunlight. Q „ Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column. Write to Kovels, Florida Weekly, King Features Syndicate, 628 Virginia Dr., Orlando, FL 32803. The first bell toys featured an animal that kicked or hit a bell as it was pulled.

September 2: 9-5 3UN3EPTEMBERrs 3ENIORSs Info Call: FLORIDA WRITERS Comedy and compassion fuel a fine new mystery seriesQ Murder on Pea PikeŽ by Jean Harrington. Camel Press. 264 pages. Trade paperback, $15.95. Jean Harringtons new Listed and LethalŽ mystery series shares some features with her five-part Murders by DesignŽ series (recently reprinted by Harlequin). The main similarity is that the protago-nist in each series is a professional woman who teams up romantically with a law enforcement officer and then can-not avoid becom-ing involved in his investigations. In the earlier series, Deva Dunne lives and works in the inte-rior design trade in upscale Naples. In the Listed and LethalŽ stories, Honey Ingersoll is a real estate agent in rural Arkan-sas. Differences in education and social class also distinguish the two characters. As Honey pursues a real estate deal on the out-skirts of Eureka Falls, she chances upon the corpse of an attractive, flashy young woman she had seen at Ridleys Real Estate just recent-ly. Though Tallulah Bixby is dressed to kill, someone got to her first. Soon after, the owner of property in the same neighborhood as Honeys corpse discovery is also found mur-dered. You guessed it „ discovered by Honey. Hmm. She might be a suspect, except for the fact that she is the nar-rator. And speaking of discoveries, Honey finds a couple of uncut diamonds near the crime scene. The novels two main centers of interest are the murders and Honeys love life. With respect to the murders, there seems to be an orchestrated buying-up of properties in the area surrounding the murders, suggesting the need to keep the purchases secret. Or maybe its the rumors concerning the dia-monds lying about. Murder is one way of shutting someone up. When readers find out that a major casino project is being planned, they might surmise that some in the town are against it. Honeys love life? Up until now, a series of poor choices. But whats an attention-needy, somewhat insecure girl to do? These days, Honey is idealiz-ing her attractive boss, Sam Ridley, who is among those showing an interest in those rundown properties. She has imagined getting a dazzling kiss from him for a long time, but now can Sam possibly be on Honeys suspect list? Shes been an invaluable employee, but he has plenty of cause to worry about her recent strange behavior. At the same time, Sheriff Matt Rameros has been giving Honey a lot of attention, even while trying to take a professional stance toward her. One of the most enjoyable elements in Murder on Pea PikeŽ is the growth of the Honey/Matt relationship, espe-cially as dramatized through their con-versations. His frustrations at her lack of caution and her strong-mindedness are amplified by how much he cares for her and wants to protect her from real dangers as well as from her own impulsiveness. Enjoyable secondary characters include Mrs. Otis, an older woman who works in Sams real estate office and becomes more and more a mother fig-ure for Honey. She is wise, caring and less stodgy than she seems at first. Others include banker Cletus Dwyer, with whom Honey has a mild flirtation; Lila Lott, scheming femme fatale daugh-ter of Senator Lott; and Saxby Win-throp, Honeys marriageshy former beau. Ms. Harrington does just enough to give us a cultural snap-shot of Eureka Falls without becoming heavy-handed. She makes g ood use of Josies, a popular diner: The sausage and hot cakes aroma spilling out onto Main Street lured in anybody who had the price of a greasy good breakfast.Ž Snatches of conversations inside the eatery interact with the ongoing por-trait of the physical place. The author Harrington has an eye for the ridiculous in human nature, and she takes advantage of her characters foibles to concoct a spirited, suspense-ful tale with equal measures of comedy and compassion. About the author A former English and writing teacher, Naples resident Jean Harrington burst out of retirement once her passion for writing possessed her. Before the two mystery series mentioned ab ove, she published two historical novels set in Ireland: The Barefoot QueenŽ and In the Lions Mouth.Ž She has won several fiction awards and served two terms as president of the Romance Writers of America Southwest Florida chapter.

B10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 24-30, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYINTO THE FUTURE/ ALLAN LEDERMAN cased in an exhibition for the first time in more than 75 years. Whitney, who founded New Yorks Whitney Museum of American Art, was known in her lifetime as a significant sculptor, exhibiting in the United States and Europe, and receiving major com-missions and prizes. But her work has been discounted because of her gender and her wealth. This show will survey Whitneys art, from her earliest classical sculptures to her more symbolic public monuments, from her Realist depictions of World War I to her late Art Deco work. She died in 1942. The Norton also will host a number of Spotlight exhibitions, smaller shows that are shorter in duration, and feature special loans of art and works from the Norton collection examining specific themes. This seasons Spotlight exhibi-tions explore recent acquisitions, large-scale works, and the expressive element of color from a range of artists. Here are the main exhibitions of the 2017-2018 season: Earth Works: Mapping the AnthropoceneŽ „ Sept. 5-Jan. 14. In 2015 and 2016, trans-disciplinaryŽ artist and photographer Justin Brice Guariglia flew with NASA scientists over Greenland to study how melt-ing glaciers affect sea level rise. His photographs from this experience have been used to create works of art that spark an emotional connection to the science and inspire curiosity in the public. The images he took during these flights, paired with the creative and ground-breaking manner in which he presents them, serve to map with visual evidence, and through metaphor, the complexity of human impact on the planet. Organized by Tim B. Wride, the Nortons William and Sarah Ross Soter curator of photography. Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney: SculptureŽ „ Jan. 25-April 29. This show, featuring some 40 sculptures and drawings, will be the first exhibition of Whitneys art since her death in 1942. The exhibition will highlight rarely seen works from private collections, examining Whitneys creation of some of the most popular public sculp-ture of her era. Unlike most other American artists, Whitney portrayed the grim realities of World War I, reflecting the fact that she had served as a nurse in France. She cre-ated sensitive portraits of working-class people, including African-Americans and the unemployed; her Art Deco monuments represent remarkable explorations of mod-ernism. Organized by Ellen E. Roberts, the Harold and Anne Berkley Smith curator of American Art. The Norton also plans four Spotlight exhibitions. Heres a look:Julie Mehretu: Epigraph, DamascusŽ „ Sept. 5-Oct. 22. Julie Mehretu (born 1970, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia), incorporated a series of deconstructed architectural renderings of Damascus, Syria, as the basis for this six-panel print. This Spotlight exhibition features this newly acquired 2016 work by an artist known for gestural abstract com-positions that can be interpreted as a poignant and a deeply expressive com-mentary on current events. BRILLIANT: Recent AcquisitionsŽ „ Oct. 26-Dec. 10. BRILLIANTŽ highlights new acquisitions that empha-size a bold and dramatic use of color. This exhibition includes works on paper, glass and photography, with artwork by Dale Chihuly and Michael Craig-Martin, among other contemporary artists. Miss Lucys 3-Day Dollhouse PartyŽ „ Dec. 14-Feb. 4. Jupiter art collector Douglas Andrews persuaded such notable artists as Donald Baechler, Julian Schnabel, Philip Taaffe, and Cy Twom-bly to contribute miniature artworks to hang on the interior walls of his mothers dollhouses, a hobby she shared with her granddaughters. The three structures include more than a dozen rooms filled with art. This will be the public premiere of this collaboration. Black History Black FuturesŽ „ Feb. 8-March 18. The Norton will high-light the work of black artists in this exhibition. Related programming and special lectures will be presented dur-ing the exhibition. Also on view through April: A special installation in the Nortons Chinese Gallery features a teapot designed by the prominent, early 19th-century Chi-nese scholar and artist Chen Hongshou (1768-1822). Chen was actively engaged in reviving the flagging Yixing purple sandŽ teapot industry and this installa-tion features one of his 18 iconic teapot forms. Q Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, and Whitney Houston. Ladies are sure to love her lead single, Tough Guys,Ž which if properly punctuated is Tough, guys.Ž As in too bad. So sorry. See ya. Oh, and BTW, she can shred on guitar. Really rip. And she looks super-sexy doing it. Kids can play giant versions of their favorite games, create your own adventure in StoryVille, and of course Glow in the Dark mini-golf. Food and drink vendors are on site. Benefiting nonprofits include: Adopt-A-Family of the Palm Beaches Inc., American Cancer Society-Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, Autism Speaks, Children Seen and Heard, Cul-tural Council of Palm Beach County, Dress for Success Palm Beaches, Gulf-stream Goodwill Industries, Habitat for Humanity, Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies Coalition of Palm Beach County, Legal Aid of Palm Beach County, Inc., Lifes Changes Palm Beach County, Inc., Little Smiles, Meals on Wheels of the Palm Beaches, Nonprofits First, Pathfinders Scholarship Fund, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League, Quantum House, Resource Depot, Seagull Services, Sis-ter Cities of Delray Beach Inc., Susan G Komen South Florida, The Arc of Palm Beach County, The Take Heed The-ater Company Inc., United Way of Palm Beach County and Urban Youth Impact.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 24-30, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B11 LATEST FILMS‘The Trip To Spain’ ++ Is it worth $10? YesThe problem with a bad ending is that it becomes the only thing people remember. No matter how good a movie is leading up to the conclusion, it can all be undone/undermined by what happens in those precious final minutes. This is relevant in terms of The Trip To SpainŽ because, for the most part, its a witty travelogue fol-lowing two British comedians as they try to make one another laugh while waxing philosophical about life and love. Theyre smart and although their humor is some-times dry, we like them. And then the ending happens and youre thinking what the?Ž as the credits roll. The comedians are Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon, and this is the third time theyve travelled together on screen: The first was The TripŽ through England in 2011, then The Trip To ItalyŽ in 2014. Now theyre hitting Spain, once again playing versions of themselves and this time channeling Don Quixote,Ž the Span-ish Civil War, the Inquisition, etc. They even find a dinosaur monument to visit, which leads to some barbed one-liners and the best John Hurt impression youll ever hear. Speaking of impressions, there are plenty of them. Youll have to decide for yourself whether Mr. Coogan or Mr. Brydon does the better Mick Jag-ger, Marlon Brando, Sean Connery, Roger Moore, David Bowie, Woody Allen and/or Michael Caine (among others), but this much is for sure: Itll make you smile to watch them easily morph into these celebrities, not to mention wish you could do impressions nearly as well.Impressions aside, the real appeal of the film is the chemistry and conversation between the two stars. Now three movies in, director Michael Winterbottom once again uses the same formula of driving through the country, stopping at off-the-beaten-path fine dining establishments and staying at posh hotels while visiting notable landmarks. Each stop is part of a roughly 60-page outline that provides the shellŽ of the movie, which is as close to a shooting script as this project gets. Mr. Coogan and Mr. Brydon are given a loose plot to follow and suggestions for conversation during each meal they share, but theyre largely on their own to improvise the dialog „ which usually meets with success. Its when the conversation isnt as successful, however, that The Trip To SpainŽ struggles. At times its a bit too chatty for its own good, with some segments slightly overstaying their welcome and making the movie about 15 minutes too long (its 108 minutes). The real offense in this regard, however, is the 10-minute epilogue that shifts drastically in tone and clearly shouldve been left on the cutting room floor. It doesnt work at all, and leaves the film on a sour note rather than a witty one. Not sure what the filmmakers were think-ing, but its a mistake. Still, its the journey, not the destination, that matters, and in this case the journey is fun, funny and clever enough to make The Trip To SpainŽ a trip worth taking.

Maplewood Playhouse to debut Maplewood Playhouse a new theater facility we just learned about, starts its inaugural season with Glory Days,Ž a musical with a rocking, heartfelt score. Bringing live theater back to the new Lake Park Arts District Glory DaysŽ opens Sept. 8 at the revitalized Kelsey Theater The plot, as described by the playhouse, is as follows: A year after grad-uating high school, four best friends reconnect on their old schools football field. Will has called the boys together with a mission: to hack into the sprin-kler system so that it goes off when the jocks who bullied them in high school take the field for a charity game. But as the guys wait for instructions on how to break into the system, they quickly realize how dramatically their lives have grown apart. Kimberly Rommel-Enright will direct Maplewoods production, which features Boynton Beach resident Sean Gogan as Will, Miramar resident Mark Hernandez as Jack, Boca Raton resident Seth Kutun as Skip and Pembroke Pines resident Michael Friedman as Andy. The musical director is Michael Ursua As the director, I am blessed with an exceptionally talented and hardworking cast,Ž Mrs. Rommel-Enright said. They have dedicated themselves to learn-ing every nuance of the characters and the story. Their energy and enthusiasm make this show special. Im holding back some special surprises that people wont know about until they see it. Be prepared for a rollercoaster ride with the boys of Glory Days.Ž With a soaring pop-rock score, music and lyrics by Nick Blaemire and book by James Gardiner, Glory DaysŽ is a poignant and witty coming-of-age story about friends searching for understand-ing and validation as they face the con-sequences of growing up,Ž said Mrs. Rommel-Enright. We are thrilled to be partnering with The Kelsey Theater to present our first season. It is wonderful to be bringing live theater back to the newly revital-ized Lake Park Arts District.Ž Reached by phone at the theater, Mrs. Rommel-Enright said, We wanted to present a variety of shows in our first season. Our company manager found Glory Days and brought it to me to consider. I immediately fell in love with the music and the story. What seemed like such a simple plot in actuality was a complex intertwining of several stories capturing the essence of what it means to grow up and find yourself especially in todays world. When watching this show you can find a piece of each of the characters in yourself and remember what it was like to make that transition to adult-hood. The music is contemporary, fun and touching combining several differ-ent genres but the harmonies are what really stand out.Ž All performances will take place at the Kelsey Theater, at 700 Park Ave., Lake Park.

Its best to ignore the troublemaker, even if he or she riles your royal self. Your sup-porters stand with you. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Be careful not to let your on-the-job zealousness create resentment with co-workers who might feel you shut them out. Prove them wrong by including them in your project. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Although its not quite what you hoped for, use your good business sense to make the most of what youre being offered at this time. Things will improve down the line. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A more positive picture of what lies ahead is beginning to take shape. But there are still too many gaps that need to be filled in before you make definitive plans. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Continue to keep a tight hold on the reins so that you dont charge willy-nilly into a situation that might appear attractive on the surface but lack substance. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You still need to demand those answers to your questions. Remember, your wise counseling earns you respect, but its your search for truth that gives you wisdom. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Youll find that people are happy to help you deal with some dif-ficult situations. And, of course, know-ing you, youll be happy to return those favors anytime. Wont you? PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Give that special someone in your personal life a large, loving dollop of reassurance. That will go a long way toward restoring the well being of your ailing relationship. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This week could offer more opportunities for ambitious Lambs eager to get ahead. But dont rush into making decisions until youve checked for possible hid-den problems. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Some light begins to shine on profes-sional and/or personal situations that have long eluded explanation. Best advice: Dont rush things. All will be made clear in time. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although you might want to protest what seems to be an unfair situation, its best to keep your tongue and tem-per in check for now. The full story hasnt yet come out. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Work prospects are back on track. But watch what you say. A thoughtless comment to the wrong person „ even if its said in jest „ could delay or even derail your progress. BORN THIS WEEK: You are a delightful paradox. You like things neat and tidy. But youre also a won-derful host who can throw a really great party.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 24-30, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15The Dish: Chicken taco combo The Place: Sabor Latino, 4391 Northlake Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens; 561-202-6948 or www.sabor-latino.net. Price: $7.49 at lunch (includes a cup of lentil soup). The details: Im writing about the tacos, but may I first say a word about soup? The sopa de ajiaco, a Colombian-style chicken soup, is one of the most satisfy-ing dishes Ive had in a long time. Its a hearty soup, with two varieties of potatoes, gascas (an herb), heavy cream and plenty of shredded chicken, with a touch of capers. I loved the bit of corn that floated in the broth. That was my starter.The chicken tacos were packed with freshly grilled strips of chicken, plus plenty of lettuce and tomato, two kinds of shredded cheese and a touch of cilan-tro. Kudos to Sabor Latino for serving the dish with a wonderfully spicy salsa and fresh guacamole. Q „ Sc ott Simmons What beg an as a high school hobby „ and a way to get dinner on the table before his parents arrived home from work each night „ turned into a career for David Tower, the sous chef at Coo-linary Caf. My parents both worked,Ž Chef Tower said. I wanted to help out by making dinner.Ž The culinary program at Palm Beach Gardens High School, in a partnership with Johnson & Wales University, fed his love of cooking, too. He was just 15 when Chef Tim Lipman hired him as a line cook at the Leftovers Caf in Jupiter. After a few years there, Chef Tower enrolled in Johnson & Wales University. Before long, Chef Tower realized his true calling was back home, where Chef Lipman was opening the Coolinary Caf. The two began working together again when the caf opened several years ago. Chef Lipman taught Chef Tower how to be an all-around good leader, Chef Tower said. You have to be a good leader to work with your team,Ž he said. Knowledge is power.Ž Seasonal and regional ingredients inspire the menu at Coolinary Caf „ think gooey grilled cheese with fire roasted tomatoes, crispy flatbread, spicy sopressata and chard, homemade sau-sage, a pecan wood-smoked BLT with local lettuce, tomato and garlic mayo, and desserts like carrot cake waffles and flourless chocolate cake. Chef Towers favorite dish is short ribs. There are infinite possibilities with them as far as flavors. Its a very diverse cut of meat that can be grilled, braised, smoked, fried etc.,Ž he said. We just recently did a Korean barbecue short rib with brown rice congee, baby bok choy, carrot, daikon, mushroom and red chili.Ž He recommends ordering the fish specials and the pork dishes. They are both always packed full of flavors and textures,Ž he said. In his spare time, Chef Tower, who lives in Jupiter, enjoys playing with his three dogs, woodworking, going to the beach and traveling with his girlfriend. Were going to New Orleans and well go to a different restaurant every night,Ž he said. We like to order a bunch of appetizers to get a bunch of tastes.Ž He recommends diners try new dishes.Try something out of the box,Ž he said, something youve never had before. Im a big fan of trying new things.Ž David TowerAge: 24 Original hometown: Miami Restaurant: Coolinary Caf, 4650 Donald Ross Road, No. 110, Palm Beach Gardens, 561-249-6760, www.coolinary-cafe.com. Open 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Mission: Provide clients with great food, a great experience, and continue to learn and grow as a chef. Cuisine: Innovative, market-driven American dishes. We pretty much do all cuisines here due to our ever-changing menu.

Rhythm Caf has been serving fun food along South Dixie Highway for nearly three decades. The blackened shrimp, with peach chutney, lit my palate ablaze during a recent visit. Ill definitely order it again. The Caprese salad was composed of beautifully ripe tomatoes and creamy mozzarella.

There are a few seats inside the tiny space and patio seating with benches in back. He also has a nice selection of beers. Teeto-taling?
