The route winds through Abacoa and ends inside the stadium. The 5K is expected to draw more than 1,000 participants, and is hosted by the Pediatric Oncology Support Team, or POST. In its nearly 20 years, POST has provided free services to 2,000 area children, teens and families. Its founder, cancer survivor Barbara Abernathy, announced the goal is to raise $75,000 for children diagnosed with cancer, with an average age of 6 years old. A 10-yard diaper dashŽ that includes decorated strollers, will be held to honor infants diagnosed with cancer as early as 3 weeks of age. There will be a fun zone for kids with games and a waterslide; video-making with words of encouragement at the Courage Cam Tent;Ž and boxing in gloves to Fight Cancer Like a Kid.Ž Refreshments will be provided and prizes awarded.

Call 844-447-4687 or visit COMMENTARYIt’s complicatedEvery time I see my neighbor I ask him, Have you heard from your family?Ž And his reply each time is No.Ž The conversa-tion is short but freighted with anxiety. Lives hang in the balance of its unknowns. This is because my neighbors family is in Puerto Rico; and, of this writing, it has been five days and counting since Hurri-cane Maria made a direct hit on the island. Some million Puerto Ricans living in Florida share his worries. It is the larg-est resident population of Puerto Ricans stateside, second only to New Yorks. The population increase of Puerto Ricans in Florida is a long-term, demographic trend. It is not expected to change. They will outnumber Cubans in Florida by 2020. Maria only accelerated that trend. That said, Puerto Rican families are your neighbors, too, and like my friend, they are deeply worried about the fate of their extended families back on the island. We all have reason to share their concern. Hurricane Maria swept away and destroyed the infrastructure providing the islands drinking water, food supply, electric power, fuel distribution, finance mechanisms, health services, educational resources, telecommunications, emer-gency assistance, transportation systems, highways, housing and public buildings. The storm was an H-bomb delivered by nature. What Maria did not destroy with its 155 mph winds, it ruined with catastrophic flooding. Rivers rose as much as 20 feet from the onslaught of Marias torrential rains. It was the strongest storm to hit the island in over 80 years, the fruition of the islands worst nightmare. On the main-land, we watched fearfully. Catastrophic damage was expected, beyond anything the island had ever experienced „ ditto for many of its island neighbors. Post-Irma, Floridians knew any scenario that plotted Hurricane Marias landfall in the state held for it similar threats of devastation. No one wished this hurri-cane on anyone, but we hoped fervently it would go somewhere else. The storm moved westward, deeper into the Caribbean. Its path remained in doubt, Mixed emotions escalated. In Florida, people stopped taking down their storm sh utters. Our optimism weakened. We waited. Meanwhile, Maria advanced along its trajectory toward Puerto Rico. It made a direct hit, pummeling the island into bits, then turned north and eastward, away from Floridas coastline. Still suffering Irmas sting, Floridians offered silent prayers of thanks. No one openly gloated at Floridas good fortune. Its price was someone elses misery and a haunting loss of life. But we surely felt gratitude as Maria passed us by. The hurricane spared the state from the unthinkable „ two cat-egory 4 storms making landfall within a span of time that allows little or no time for preparation or recovery. Puerto Rico wasnt so fortunate. It took hits from both Irma and Maria. The storms left the island in the grip of a humanitar-ian crisis affecting 3.5 million people. As the crisis unfolds, desperate islanders ask, whence will come their aid? The answer? Its complicated. Puerto Ricos status as a U.S. territory puts it in a political no-mans land. Its priority and the urgency of the islands recovery „ especially its long-term recov-ery „ are subject to Congressional debate and presidential oversight. Because Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory, it has no voting representatives in Congress, and even though Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens, they arent allowed to participate in presidential elections. That may be why fewer than half of Americans even know Puerto Ricans are American citizens. An article in U.S. World by Charles R. Venator-Santiago explains: It wasnt until 1940 that Congress enacted legislation conferring birthrightƒ citizenship on per-sons born in Puerto Ricoƒ. persons born in Puerto Rico prior to 1940 could only acquire a naturalized citizenship if their parents were U.S. citizens, anyone born in Puerto Rico after 1940 acquired a U.S. citizenship as a direct result of being born on Puerto Rican soilƒŽ But herein lies a Catch-22: While Puerto Ricans are officially U.S. citizens, the fed-eral government considers Puerto Rico as ƒ a separate and unequal territory that belongs to, but is not a part of, the United States,Ž writes Venator-Santiago. This cir-cumstance creates ambiguity when certi-tude is demanded. Following natural disasters, Americans expect aid and assistance from their gov-ernment. But past food fights in Congress over disaster appropriations forewarn that politics and pecking order play an over-sized role in determining how much, for what purposes, and for how long com-munities can expect federal help. Harvey, Irma and Maria will test the nations resolve to do right by communities devas-tated by these storms. The Miami Herald notes, Texas has 38 votes in Congress and Florida has 29, and if they stick together the majority-Republican states can be an important voting bloc in a contentious negotiation.Ž Call it fiscal austerity or tough l ove, the temptation to deny Puerto Rico a full mea-sure of assistance is not, as some might venture, a lesser priority or foreign aid.Ž It is America helping Americans. Floridians know there, but for the grace of God, go we.

OPINIONWar story Ed Miller started dating my glamorous neighbor, Kay DeBaker, on a bril-liant Colorado afternoon when the sky was so blue you could see every pine tree 25 miles away, where the green car-pet of down-mountain forest abruptly ended about 3,000 feet below the sum-mits of the 14,000-footers west of town. The bald peaks themselves, as clean and snow white as the crowns of bleached skulls, sliced into heaven like jagged sharks teeth. It was spring in the Rockies the first time I saw Ed, a time when earth and sky, when frozen and melting, when dry and wet or heat and cold confront each other in a world of unimpeachable promise, all of it anchored to the seem-ingly ageless order of mountains. As I understood it then, for any of us who tried hard in such a world no attempt would fail. No love would sur-render to despair and no right to wrong „ certainly not if it had anything to do with me, my family or my neighbors. The dazzling Kay lived with her parents. Mr. DeBaker often hailed me from their back garden, where hed offer a hard candy or a tomato or 25 cents for a soda. Hed even buried my favorite cat in that garden so I wouldnt have to see him first, the satin-black Spooky, after the little sucker got run over one night on the road. Spookys sudden death represented a failure in the fabric of my flawless Col-orado living, offering me a first-ever lesson in the powerful sting of a broken heart. But I finally forgot about it. It was a few years later when I saw Ed park his 50s-something Dodge at the curb and stride up the walk that first time „ a muscular young man with short blond hair and blue eyes grinning like a keyboard with no flats or sharps, bouncing like a coiled spring. Kay came outside to meet him. She was so radiant I could never look at her straight, or even talk to her, without stammering. But Id always imagined shed fall in love with me at some point, and ƒ well, I had no idea what. I wasnt sure what came after that. I liked Ed more than I could express and before long, more than Kay. He soon became my friend, waving and laughing whenever he came to see Kay. It was like having a Greek god point to you and say, Hey Roger, Ill be your best pal „ oh, and dont worry about her.Ž He was unfailingly attentive, even when Kay sought to distract him. Hed always aim his finger pistol at me and pretend to fire. Id display my long combat training as a front-yard soldier, running from one tree to the next and diving into the green grass before com-ing up from a roll and firing back. Ed would grasp his side and pretend to be shot, even falling once or twice for my benefit. And maybe Kays. Then hed escort Kay to his car, heading out to somewhere over the rainbow. Before long, I learned Ed and Kay would be married. But first, Ed was going away for a few months. Hed joined the United States Army. I could think of nothing Id rather do than go join the United States Army with Ed „ but only after Kay stood around admiring the two of us heroes for about an hour. Unfortunately, the Army didnt take 11-year-olds. But there was no doubt in my mind if the Germans and Japa-nese came back „ or the Sioux or the Apaches or even somebody called the Viet Cong „ Ed and I could handle it. On a bright autumn afternoon, Ed finally reappeared in the DeBakers driveway as a newly minted graduate of officer candidate school. Hed returned on leave to stay in their basement until he and Kay married in the nearby Bon-nie Brae Baptist Church a week later, a wedding my family would attend. Calling me into his little bunk-bed quarters next door, Eds grin was bigger than ever. He told me he was a second lieutenant in the infantry. He wore a white T-shirt over khaki trousers, his muscles showing prominently through the thin cotton, I remember. Then he took me through bayonet drill with a broom for half an hour. After that, I knew the enemy was a goner whether they met Ed or me. Following the wedding, Ed went away to Vietnam. Kay stayed in her parents home for almost a year, work-ing in a nearby dry-goods store. Then one day Ed returned to Colorado. When his car pulled up outside the DeBakers house I ran out, eager to see my old friends cocky grin. Eager for his affirmation and his ready finger pistol. Three men got out of the car with Ed, wearing uniforms. Two supported him, one on each side. Kay came out of the house to meet him, white-faced and unsmiling. Ed wore civilian clothes. He was bent and gray and hollow, shrunken to about 5 feet tall. He carried a cane and couldnt walk by himself. Even with help, he could only stumble. I know he saw me. I waved from about 50 feet away, tentatively. Ed glanced and then looked back at the ground, showing no sign of recogni-tion and hardly acknowledging Kay, who rushed down to meet the cluster of men. For reasons Ive never learned, I never saw Ed again. And now I wonder: Are we going to repeat these needless stories of heart-break and loss „ the stories of Korea, Vietnam and Iraq, to name only some „ elsewhere? Q ‘Sovereignty’ is not a dirty wordTo listen to the commentary, Donald Trump used an inappropriate term at the U.N. „ not just Rocket Man,Ž but sov-ereignty.Ž It wasnt surprising that liberal analysts freaked out over his nickname for Kim Jong Un and his warning that wed totally destroyŽ Kims country should it become necessary. These lines were calculated to get a reaction, and they did. More interest-ing was the allergy to Trumps defense of sovereign nations. Brian Williams of MSNBC wondered whether the repeated use of the word sovereigntyŽ was a dog whistle.Ž CNNs Jim Sci utto called it a loaded termŽ and a favorite expression of authoritarian leaders.Ž In an otherwise illuminating piece in The Atlantic, Peter Beinart concluded that Trumps address amounted to imperial-ism.Ž If so, couched in the rhetoric of the mutual respect of nations, its the best-disguised imperialist manifesto in history. Trumps critics misrepresent the speech and misunderstand the nationalist vision that Trump was setting out. He didnt defend a valueless international relativism. Trump warned that authoritarian powers seek to collapse the values, the systems, and alliances that prevented conflict and tilted the world toward freedom since World War II.Ž He praised the U.S. Constitution as the foundation of peace, prosperity and free-dom for the Americans and for countless millions around the globe.Ž The Marshall Plan,Ž he said, was built on the noble idea that the whole world is safer when nations are strong, indepen-dent and free.Ž Theres no doubt that theres a tension in Trumps emerging marriage between traditional Republican thinking and his instinctive nationalism. Yet he outlined a few key expectations. He said, repeatedly, that we want nations committed to promoting secu-rity, prosperity and peace.Ž And we look for them to respect the interests of their own people and the rights of every other sovereign nation.Ž Every country that Trump criticized fails one or both of these tests. So, by the way, do Russia and China. Trumps core claim that the nationstate remains the best vehicle for elevat-ing the human conditionŽ is indubitably correct; it is what makes self-government possible. If the alternative is being gov-erned by an imperial center or transna-tional authorities, the people of almost every nation will want „ and fight, if necessary „ to govern themselves. (See the American Revolution.) The U.N. is hardly an inappropriate forum for advancing these ideas. The Organization,Ž the U.N. charter itself says, is based on the principle of the sovereign equality of all its Members.Ž To the extent that the U.N. is now a gathering place for people hoping the nation-state will be eclipsed, its useful to remind them that its not going away. All that said, there were indeed weaknesses in the speech. First, as usual, Trumps bellicose lines stepped on the finer points of his message. Second, sover-eignty cant alone bear the weight of being the organizing principle of American for-eign policy. Finally, Trumps foreign-policy vision is clearly a work in progress, as he accommodates himself to the American international role he so long considered a rip-off and waste of time. Trump is adjusting to being the head of a sovereign nation „ that happens to be the leader of the world. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly roger


FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 5-11, 2017 A5 phil FLORIDA WRITERS When tilapia are dying from bleach, it could be big newsQ Coastal Corpse,Ž by Marty Ambrose. Five Star. 229 pages. Hard-cover $25.95. Ebook $3.99.Mallie Monroe is at it again in the fifth Mango Bay Mystery.Ž Shes jug-gling two beaux. One is Cole, whose engagement ring she has managed to misplace (Freudian slip). The other is Nick, the chief police detective on Coral Island. Mallie seems to have a commitment problem.She has other problems as well. Her job as a reporter for The Coral Island Observer has been immensely complicated by the secretary-receptionists honeymoon and the editors disappearance. Suddenly, she finds herself in charge of just about every-thing, including getting out the next issue of the paper. There are just too many stories wait-ing to be researched and writ-ten. Which is the feature and which are the fillers? Mallie is not happy about having to enlist the help of people with little or no experience. Things are chaotic. A local crazy is trying to pin all her problems, includ-ing a bad landscaping job, on Mallie and actually attacks her. Aging lothario Pop Pop keeps imagining that hes Mallies boyfriend. Madame Geri, a local psychic, does more harm than good as a fill-in reporter. There is also a character whose violin bears scratches that resemble a portrait of Abraham Lincoln. Should Mallie choose this item as the lead story? Probably not. And there is trouble at the Town Hall meeting where former friends and busi-ness associates are at each others throats. When one of them ends up dead in a fish tank, the other is an obvious suspect „ but there are plenty of other suspects to choose from, including jealous women. Now theres a story. Even Mallies friend and landlord, Wanda Sue, campaigning for a town coun-cil seat, finds trouble.Many of the characters „ and there are perhaps too many of them for a relatively compact novel „ are quite colorful. Their excesses are part of the novels fun. Several dont act their age „ their relatively advanced age. Others are simply wacky. Its a community in which a frenzied motormouth like Mallie is the pillar of stability. More complications. Bad fertilizer made from farm-raised tilapia killed by bleach is ruining gardens and crops. Whos behind this? Why? Mallie has to help track down the culprit. Marty Ambrose proves that small-town life, even on a modestly sized Southwest Florida island, is not boring. In fact, one of the greatest strengths of her novel and its predecessors is the authors ability to portray the dynamics, attractions and foibles of such communi-ties. These are places where everyone knows „ and knows about „ everyone else. Where civic-minded people are generous with their time and tend to help each other out. Where you sometimes can feel like a queen while living in an antique Airstream trailer in an RV park, as Mallie does. This series provides several powerful examples of the cozy mysteryŽ subgenre, which is growing in popularity with such fine Florida writers as Nancy J. Cohen, Lucy Burdette, Diane Weiner and, of course, Marty Ambrose leading the way.About the authorPine Island resident Marty Ambrose has been a writer most of her life, con-sumed with the world of literature wheth-er teaching English and creative writing at Florida Southwestern State College or creating her own fiction. Her writing career has spanned almost two decades with eight published nov-els for Avalon Books, Kensington Books, Thomas & Mercer„and Coastal CorpseŽ for Five Star.During the last year, Ms. Ambrose has become increasingly interested in combin-ing historical memoir and womens fiction, which became her latest novel, Claires Last Secret.Ž It takes place in both Florence and Geneva, where Ms. Ambrose researched this past summer, and spans two eras played out against the backdrop of 19th-century Italy. She loves telling a story „ especially if its a Florentine conspiracy that unfolds in a Downton AbbeyŽ-esque setting.

You Deserve the Best Care WORLD RENOWNEDPediatric Orthopedic Care PET TALESGo dogs! BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationIts football season, and everywhere you turn there are bulldogs and huskies rep-resenting college sports teams. Bulldogs seem to be the clear favorite, serving as mascots for Butler, Georgetown, Univer-sity of Georgia, Gonzaga, Yale and many more schools, at least 42 altogether. Yale, credited with being the first university to have a mascot, has been repped by a bulldog since 1889. Because of con-cerns about breed health, though, the col-lege switched this year from the AKC-registered bulldog to a variety known as the Olde English Bulldogge, thought to have less extreme physical characteristics. Following a long line of dogs named Hand-some Dan, the current mascot is named Walter after Yales Walter Camp, known as the father of American football. The husky is another popular canine mascot. Colleges claiming the husky as a symbol include University of Connecticut, University of Southern Maine, Michigan Tech, Northeastern, Northern Illinois Uni-versity, St. Cloud State University in Min-nesota and University of Washington. Northeastern adopted the husky as its mascot in 1927 in honor of the sled dogs „ Togo and Balto being among the best known „ and their drivers who delivered life-saving diphtheria vaccine to Nome, Alaska, through near-blizzard conditions. While UConns Jonathan, named after Jona-than Trumbull, Connecticuts last colonial and first state governor, is a Siberian husky, the term huskyŽ doesnt always refer to that breed. Dubs, the University of Washington mascot, is actually an Alaskan malamute. But what about other dog breeds? Do they get a shot at being big dog on campus? Heres a look at some of the lesser known or more unusual canine college mascots. The saluki, a sleek and speedy sighthound, has been the mascot at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale since 1951. Salukis are believed to be one of the most ancient types of dogs, and thats how they became SIUs mascot, says Saluki breeder and all-around dog expert Caro-line Coile. That area of Southern Illinois is known as Little Egypt,Ž she says, so they wanted an Egyptian mascot, hence the saluki, an Egyptian dog. They seem like a great mas-cot for a track team „ not so much for a football team.Ž A bluetick coonhound, Smokey (the 10th of that name), leads the University of Ten-nessees Volunteers onto the football field at home games and howls when they score. The first mascot, Blue Smokey, won his place in 1953 when he barked and howled on hearing his name called as students voted for their favorite dog. North Carolina State University teams are known as the Wolfpack, but a live wolf as a mascot wasnt a good option. Instead, they found a dog that resembled a wolf. Tuffy, who goes by the name Wave at home, is a tamaskan, a type of dog first bred in Finland by blending German shepherds, Alaskan malamutes and Siberian huskies.

Q Florida Prepaid offers 2 free years of college to 10 families The Florida Prepaid College Foundation will award two free years of col-lege to 10 Florida families through the Florida Prepaid Scholarship Program through Oct. 29. The initiative coincides with National College Savings Month and concludes after the mid-October launch of Florida Prepaid College plans open enrollment. The program educates families about saving for college through tax-advan-taged Florida Prepaid College and Flor-ida 529 savings plans designed to help families set aside funds for future college costs. Florida Prepaid College Board Chairman John D. Rood said the programs offer parents and guardians a way to learn more about college savings options and to start implementing a plan to reduce or avoid student loan debt. Florida officials project that by 2018, about 60 percent of all jobs in Florida will require post-secondary education. A college degree is a gateway to a lifetime of earnings and career potential,Ž said Cynthia OConnell, director of the Florida Prepaid College Foundation. We look forward to giving the gift of college to 10 winners, and hope every eligible family will enter.Ž The schol-arship contest also comes as Florida officials prepare for an increase in state college enrollment for the first time since 2010. Studies show that children with dedicated college savings are 2.5 times more likely to enroll in and gradu-ate from college than children with no account, organizers say. Florida Prepaids two-year Florida College Plan covers tuition and other specified fees for 60 lower-division credit hours at a Florida college, offer-ing the opportunity to earn an associ-ates degree or trade certification. A stu-dent earning an associates degree from a Florida college is guaranteed admis-sion to a state university in Florida Prepaid plans are available during the Oct. 15 to Feb. 28 open enrollment peri-od.

She had been so caught up with checking out the latest Facebook news-feeds, she d neglected to watch the oven. As Marcy furiously tended to the meal, she heard the key turn in the lock. As luck would have it, her husband Craig came home just as she was trying to see if she could salvage the meal. The withering look on Craig's face said it all. But that alone wasn't enough „ he then proceeded to cut her to shreds with his sarcastic put-downs. Craig reminded Marcy that this was not the first time and that she was becoming more and more scattered and incompe-tent in managing the family and house-hold. "Would it kill you to not check Instagram while youre cooking?Ž Marcys feeble attempts to defend herself, by reminding him of all the tasks she had on her plate, fell on deaf ears. Marcy was always feeling defensive and inadequate in her husbands presence. Over time, she had become sullen and withdrawn from the relationship. Now, if we were to ask Marcy (in the fictionalized vignette above) her per-spective on why her marriage was so strained and unhappy, she might reply that her husband was so condescending and critical, it was hard for her to relax or to be herself. She might further add that it was hard to feel warmth or affec-tion toward a man who was continu-ally putting her down. Many of us likely would be inclined to agree with her. However, what if we were to ask Craig his perspective on why the marriage was so unhappy? He likely would have a very different take on what was wrong. He might say that he views himself as a dedicated family man who counts on his wife to be a team player. He might resent that she doesnt handle things the way he believes she should. But, importantly, he might also feel hurt or neglected that she has withdrawn from him. Very likely, he would have limited insight into the way his demeanor and behavior have largely contributed to why his marriage is in such disrepair. Certainly, we would never encourage Marcy to silently endure Craigs dismis-sive behavior. But what effect do her withdrawal and possible preoccupation with technology have on this relation-ship? Does each have his or her own part in why this relationship has come to such a distressing place? Most of us would look at the above example and conclude the damage Craig causes in his relationship is glaring-ly obvious and that WE would never behave so poorly. However, are we willing to consider that there might be other things that we say or do that might cause distress to our partners without even realizing it? In an interview, noted couples therapist Dr. Ellen Wachtel stated that she asks couples to consider this important question in her first appointment: What do you know about yourself that makes you not the easiest person to live with?Ž Now, I will ask you this very same question. What do you know about yourself that makes you not the easiest person to live with?Ž Many of us will find this line of questioning uncomfortable. Its never pleasant to entertain the notion that our own attitudes and behaviors may have a lot to do with the difficulties in our relationships. It couldnt be OUR fault that were not getting along. Or could it? As we go forward, many of us begin to accumulate a list of the slights and injustices we believe weve endured, and may even feel sorry for ourselves „ convinced were the victims of unrea-sonable mistreatment. It takes maturity (and humility) to look within and to honestly appraise our attributes and deficiencies. How-ever, when were open to hearing less than flattering feedback and show a willingness to take accountability, we may open up a dialogue that may sig-nificantly improve the quality of our relationships. And if we begin to not only identify those traits about our-selves that create distance with others, but attempt to take corrective steps, we may discover a significant improvement in the closeness we feel. People often worry that there may be reprisals if they admit to a flaw. There are always narcissistic or insecure peo-ple who cannot accept any negative feedback about themselves. There are also some who might take advantage of anothers confidences or use this to their advantage. In these instances, we would be wise to proceed with caution. Most of us DO know what we can do to please our partners, but some-times were so angry, hurt, entitled „ or LAZY „ we will stubbornly resist doing the very things that would make a difference. Or else, we may say: My partner doesnt do anything nice for me. Why should I bother?Ž So, we go around and around, stuck in a demoralizing, estranged cycle. Dr. Wachtel has asserted a principle that defines her work with couples: We love those who make us feel good about ourselves.Ž While this statement is certainly not profound, and most of us intuitively know this, we dont always put this into practice „ certainly not with our spous-es, and often not with our children. If we could only take this message to heart and commit to this principle as an action plan. Lets consider the fol-lowing universal truth of human nature: that people have a need to feel admired and respected. When we speak lovingly and positively, we often bring out the best traits in our loved ones. When we regularly communicate to our partners that, we not only admire and respect them, but are committed to relating in a loving way, we can soften so many of the sharp edges in our interactions. And more importantly, we may create an environment where each of us can grow and bring out our best selves. Q linda


bright stars out there, some of whom are just starting to light up their own solar systems of followers, each follower at the same time their own star, however faint, around which others revolve.we are so both and oneful night cannot be so sky sky cannot be so sunful i am through you so i „ e.e. cummingsWildd at HeartBefore Fort Lauderdale resident Lacey Wildd was an internet-TV star and practicing clairvoyant, who became known as The Human Barbie for her enormous breast implants and numer-ous other plastic surgeries, she was born Paula Ann Simonds. Her childhood, as she describes it, bears a stark contrast with her public career, a spectacle that helped her earn the money she needed to raise her own six children. Ms. Wildd, 49, has no regrets. Ive lived the life of a rock star,Ž she said.She grew up in impoverished Appalachia in the mountains of West Virginia. She recalled often being barefoot, her family canning food, the good smell of their coal-burning st ove, and gazing out over a bridge at a river that looked like a little tiny vein.Ž Later, in her mid-grade school years, her family moved to Peoria, Ill., where she didnt fit in. She had not yet learned to read and, due to her psychic abilities, she said, was nick-named The Witch.Ž People would hold their fingers up like crosses because I could predict things, I knew things,Ž she said. I kind of moved away from there, got blonde hair and big boobs and called myself Lacey.Ž Married before she turned 18, she had two children before leaving her much older husband when she was 21, making ends meet working as a waitress, then as an exotic dancer in Las Vegas. A star at Olympic Gardens, she described making as much as $5,000 a night doing theatri-cal performances to songs such as Billy Idols White WeddingŽ and literally raking the money off the stage. She got her first boob job shortly before moving there, she said: I had a perfect body but I was flat chested as hell.Ž Under the stage lights, the crowds were blacked out, nearly as anonymous as the viewers who would later watch her on television. The crowds never had faces to me, just the roar,Ž she said. It was definitely where I found my peace and all my ghosts in my closet went away.Ž Later she moved to the southeast coast of Florida following a former Vegas flame, and began to gain popular-ity on MySpace, then on Facebook, Ins-tagram, Twitter and YouTube. A video of her driving home from the hospital with newly enlarged breasts went viral, she said. I was like, if they like this and this makes me popular, what if I doubled them?Ž She appeared on an episode of MTVs True LifeŽ in 2011 called I Have a Hot Mom,Ž the beginning of a string of TV appearances. She continued to get sur-geries, she said, all over her body. As a result, people accused her of being one of the fakest people on the planet.Ž I gave the world what they wanted basically,Ž she said. When I got famous I realized that they created Lacey Wildd, not meƒ I cry. I bleed like everyone else. Im not really a hollow doll like they think.Ž Ms. Wildd is planning to move back to where she grew up in West Virginia and open what she calls The Wildd at Heart Wilderness Wellness Center. This December, she plans to have another surgery to make her breasts even larger. And she doesnt need to be psychic to perceive the consequences of destroy-ing our planet, one of her major con-cerns, but it helps. We are the fleas of the Earth,Ž she said. We will be shaken off if we keep destroying her.ŽSolo Travel GirlA globe-traversing traveler recently clad in pink Converse sneakers, Jennifer Hubers blog and her related Twitter account @jennifer-huber have gained a loyal readership across the United States and the oceans beyond with more than 11,000 followers. A Buffalo, N.Y., native, Ms. Huber, who describes herself on her blog as just your average forty-somethingyear-old gal living life solo,Ž now lives in North Port and has a day job with Charlotte Countys tourism office. She first got a Twitter account in 2007, the year the iPhone came out, hearing about it from a guy she dated at the time who worked in IT and coun-terintelligence. She also worked writing articles for online sites such as Yahoo, and the now defunct Suite 101. I was able to go in there and establish myself as an expert in travel,Ž she said. At the same time, she used MySpace and then Twitter to share her per-sonal travel experiences. In 2008, she got a break when Christopher Elliot, a major star in the travel writing universe, named her one of the top 50 Twitter travelers to follow. One day all of a sudden I noticed I was getting all these followers,Ž Ms. Huber said. Someone said, Oh, Chris-topher Elliot said to follow you.Ž The next year she went to a conference called BlogHer, and experienced that small measure of fame that more and more people with social media accounts have: people whom you dont know but who feel like they know you. It was kind of like a little creepy,Ž she said, but at the same time compli-mentary. Another time she recalled flying to Ontario, Canada, where she was greeted in the lobby of her hotel by an unknown woman who happened to be one of her Twitter followers. From this she learned not to post where shes going to show up. It turns out shes a fantastic person,Ž Ms. Huber said, a school teacher with whom she became friends. That ended up being a good story but Ive heard other bloggers have bad stories, people trying to harass them or something.Ž She has often been recognized and awarded as a boomerŽ generation blog-ger, though by age she is Generation X. Many of her readers are boomers, she points out, including women who perhaps lost their husband, chose not to marry, or for whatever reason are single, women for whom she offers her own travels as inspiration. As she says on her blog she travels alone, not lonely.Ž Even going out to dinner can be a scary and lonely experience for many people so I like it that I kind of act as an inspiration to them,Ž she said. She prefers Twitter for its brevity. Youve got to use that space wisely,Ž she said. Thats what I like about Twit-ter. It teaches you to be a better writer or use more visuals because the space is so limited.Ž Shes earned some extra income here and there working for brands such as hotels to get paid by the Tweet or host Twitter parties, and her travel writing has led to a radio show and other writ-ing gigs as well. Mostly, she posts what she wants. Im thankful for the opportunities its afforded me and the people Ive met,Ž she said. I had no idea when I started this where it would lead me. Ive been around the world and had all sorts of experiences. I dont think it could have happened any other way.ŽThat’s InappropriateA fan of stand-up and sketch comedy such as SNL, Meredith Masony has been posting funny and honest blogs and videos about her life as a mom and wife on her site, Thats Inappropriate, since 2014. On her related Facebook page she had about 3,000 followers until last May, when her video rant What Moms Real-ly Want on Mothers DayŽ went viral. Since then, her Facebook followers shot up to more than 950,000, along with tens of thousands of Instagram and YouTube followers. What she wanted for Mothers Day was, for instance, To be left the hell alone,Ž said Ms. Masony, 37. Dont ask me for anything. Dont ask me to wipe anybodys butt.Ž On top of that, her husband was on a golf trip and texted her that he might not make it home that day. I was like super peeved,Ž she said. She made the video and posted it. An hour later it had 10,000 views and by the next morning 1,000,000. About a week later, it had been seen more than 10,000,000 times. By the end of the month she had about 80,000 Facebook followers. During 2016, her videos continued to go viral, the most popular one being The Man ColdŽ last September, which got picked up and shared on different platforms, she said, ultimately being watched hundreds of millions of times. Its just insane,Ž she said. That one is basically me berating my husband when hes sick because he acts like a big baby man child.Ž Formerly a middle and high school teacher in Southwest Florida, she says Thats Inappropriate and her social media life have become a full-time job. Her income comes from sponsoring blog posts for products that she uses or tries out and likes such as Hero Clean laundry detergent or Bulletproof coffee. She lives with her husband, Dave, and three children ages 7, 8, and 11, in Char-lotte County. He has never appeared in person in her videos thus far, but helps behind the scenes. Its become a running joke that people dont see his face and know him just as the BM,Ž for business manager. Because theres a huge behind-thescenes portion to this,Ž she said. That 2-minute video took hours between shooting and editing.Ž Her success as a comedian, blogger and vlogger has come with trolls as well. For the most part men are the ones who have something negative to say,Ž she said, offended when she jokes about her husband. Because Im outspoken and a comedian.Ž Usually shes unfazed by this unless the commentary is violent. One follower told her he would smash me in the face with a frying pan.Ž Another called her a bloated pig.Ž Ive had people call out my personal safety,Ž she said. At that point, you block and report.

Now 19, she has appeared in hun-dreds of TV and print ads from catalogs such as Kohls and Target to Vogue magazine. But she didnt get her first iPhone until she was 13. During high school, as her image became popular on Ins-tagram @Mercedesg_benz, her mom or momager,Ž Sandra, who has also worked as a model, helped her navigate a newfound portion of fame as well as the business opportunities it presented. Being unusually good looking helped on Instagram, but also inspired resentment. I guess how I feel is, why cant people treat me like its just normal?Ž Ms. Gutierrez said. She adds, Im not famousƒ Its not like Im Kylie Jenner or something.Ž Ms. Jenner is someone she admires. I try to even make some of my selfies look like her,Ž she said. But her experiences have given her a window into what someone like Ms. Jenner could experience, common expe-riences of fame on a smaller scale. Girls at school were catty. Online, guys would get angry if she didnt reply to messages. Some engaged in internet stalking including one who kept insist-ing they belonged together. He told me our genetics will be perfect together, just really creepy stuff,Ž she said. At a high school football game when she was a cheerleader, a group of guys showed up in the stands to cheer her, saying they knew her from Instagram. She found that if she posted pictures of herself with a boy it could immediately cost her hundreds of followers. A photographer in California refused to send her the images he had taken of her if she didnt provide nude photos in return. She got in fights with boyfriends about comments other guys made about her pictures online. And last year, she surpassed 50,000 followers on Insta-gram, an exciting landmark. Companies began asking her to promote their products online, and sending her samples. She got a contract with Bang Energy drinks (blue razz is her favorite flavor) which in part requires her to make YouTube videos featuring their products. For some videos, she has made up to $3,000. She did a short stint as a Univision host, in which she inter-viewed Miami Dolphins players. Lately, shes been working on becoming an actor, with plans to pursue that career in Atlanta „ the new L.A.,Ž her mom said „ then later make the leap to Los Angeles. She was recently cast in a film called White Slavery,Ž about drugs and prostitution in Sarasota. She is set to play the daughter of a woman who lives next door to drug pushers. To continue gaining followers, she needs to post pictures and videos every day, she said, some of which can take eight hours to shoot. She worries about her diet, goes to the gym, and tries to find time to hang out with friends. Even though you have a big social media following, its hard to have a social life,Ž she said.Modern Boca MomMichelle Olson-Rogers got her first Facebook account in 2005 when she moved to New York City after college, using the new network to keep in touch with friends. Through her marketing and public relations work in the city, it quickly became a part of her profes-sional life as well. After she moved back to Boca Raton in 2013 with her husband and newborn daughter, her personal and professional lives merged on social media with the creation of her blog Modern Boca Mom, and its attendant Facebook, Instagram, and other social media accounts. Ms. Olson-Rogers, 35, brought some of that stylish big-city energy back from New York, cultivating a hyper-local and specific following of young moms in Palm Beach County, roughly ages 25 to 45. I want to be your mom friend, thats what Im trying to be,Ž she said, Your cool mom friend to boot.Ž She serves as a resource for events, businesses, products, travel, and sup-port, be it information about swim les-sons or the upcoming Boca Pumpkin Patch Festival. Theres a special section on her blog for mompreneursŽ like herself. Most of her readers find her through social media, she said, or through Google searches. While she has the most followers on Ins-tagram (11,700), she has found her most engaged audience is on Facebook. I think Instagram is the most fun for me because its not clutter ed, its simply great photography, great captions,Ž she said. In terms of actually driving traffic to my blog its Facebook by far because thats where the moms are.Ž And now, Instagram is owned by Facebook, she points out. So worlds are colliding.Ž Too, most of her mom following reaches her on the go, on mobile phones or perhaps tablets. Theyre busy,Ž she said. Theyre reading my blog in car lines, while theyre waiting for their kids to get out of sports practice or band rehearsalƒ And social media also allows moms to save posts for later, which Im grate-ful for.Ž Her blog and social media expertise has led to other opportunities, including her job four days a week as director of com-munications and community outreach at Grandview Preparatory School, where her substantial Instagram following has lent her some street cred with high school stu-dents, who often eschew Facebook. Their parents are on Facebook so they dont want to be on Facebook,Ž she said. They are on Instagram, and they are on Snapchat.Ž Modern Boca Mom also draws interest from companies that want her to promote their products, such as an invitation-only cruise or trip to Disney World, which her daughter Avery (#dai-lybocaavery) appreciates. Through her moms blogging and social media posts, Avery, 4, has become as well or better known than Ms. Olson-Rogers. (Avery) is kind of the famous one because she is the one I post about,Ž she said. Shes the whole reason I started this because shes the one who made me a mother.Ž Q MICHELLE OLSON-ROGERS PHOTO MERCEDES GUTIERREZ INSTAGRAM PHOTO COURTESY PHOTOMercedes Gutierrez lives in Estero and has nearly 53,000 Instagram followers.COURTESY PHOTOMichelle Olson-Rogers’ Modern Boca Mom web page.

Mr. Goldapper is vice president and general manager of JVC Broadcasting of South Florida, which locally oper-ates True Oldies 95.9 FM, 106.9 FM and 960 AM, along with The Talk of the Palm Beaches 900 AM. He started out as a program director for one of JV Cs Long Island, N.Y., sta-tions, where the com-pany „ formed by vet-eran radio broadcast-ers John Caracciolo and Victor J. Canales „ is based. I did the morning show there for quite a while and helped launch our news talk station in Long Island about four years ago,Ž he said. JVC began acquiring stations in Flor-ida in 2012 and 2013, and according to its website, between the original Long Island stations and its recent transactions, JVC currently owns 15 broadcasting fre-quencies across New York and Florida. Florida is a great market,Ž Mr. Goldapper said. New York, Long Island and West Palm Beach kind of go together. There are a lot of people in the area from Long Island and you get your snowbirds here as well. It was a market we felt comfortable entering.Ž The stations, which formerly aired adult contemporary music, now broad-cast oldies, to rave reviews on social media, people calling the station, inter-actions through events and with our clients, who love the new format,Ž Mr. Goldapper said, insisting the changeover will continue to reap ratings rewards with the incorporation of a well-known radio personality into the mix. We had a unique opportunity to partner with a guy named Scott Shannon, who is a radio legend in New York,Ž he said. Hes actually the current No. 1 morning show host in all of New York City. Hes now assisting us in programming the station. You know, hes got a home down here as well and is a resident of the area.Ž Mr. Goldapper said JVC is going after the 40+ demographic „ those who grew up in the 60s and 70s, as well as the younger listeners who have an affinity through their parents for the music of that era. Even some of our younger listeners have a nostalgic perspective on that period,Ž he said. Did you know theres not an oldies station in this market? We play the greatest songs from the 60s and 70s that no one else is playing. We really thought there was a need for that, a desire for it and we wanted to be the people to do it. We also plan to get Scott Shannon into the mix down here. As I said, hes in the area quite a bit and will be doing shows live from our studio, as well as making local appearances.Ž Mr. Goldapper said The Talk of the Palm Beaches 900 AM station will con-tinue its focus on news, talk and life-style, with a neighborhood touch for good measure. Its a very unique station,Ž he said. We have a lot of great, different kinds of shows. In the morning we have Don Imus and midday is Brian Kilmeade from Fox News. But then throughout the rest of the day, we let a lot of local, influential people take over the air-waves. For example, Earl Stewart from Earl Stewart Toyota does a two-hour car advocacy show every Tuesday. We also have the owner of Smoke Inn Cigars do a cigar show every Saturday for two hours. Keeping it local is something we take a lot of pride in.Ž Mr. Goldapper likes the word localŽ a lot and promises JVCs stations will continue to promote area businesses and services. We want to make a special effort in reaching out to the community,Ž he said. We do a lot of work with Big Dog Ranch Rescue, for example, and try to touch as many people as we can in a positive way. We also have an exclusive relationship with the Palm Beach Sher-iffs Office, where we present an award for Deputy of the Month each month. We try to do things a little differently than other media outlets. A lot of media puts out a negative perception of the police and we do the opposite. We like to show the positive side of what they do. Theyve been under fire a lot and sure, there are bad apples everywhere you go. But the majority of them are doing the right thing and theyre the people we want to highlight.Ž Regional events also will find their way onto JVCs airwaves. Well be looking to promote concerts in the area and will seek out a lot of partnerships to bring out entertain-ment for our audience, that just hasnt been here until now,Ž Mr. Goldapper said. Well be finding something new and something different that we know theyll like.Ž For more information about JVC Broadcasting and its foray into the Palm Beach area, visit Q Tuned to successBY STEVEN J.

BEHIND THE WHEELBuy these 2017 cars before 2018 Fall is a time for activity at your local auto dealerships. Plenty of new 2018 cars and trucks are beginning to arrive. But what about the ones being replaced? As new models begin to be promoted, dealers want to close the books on the 2017 ones „ even if we re months away from the new year. So now also is the time to get the largest discounts on cars that are being redesigned or wont be around in 2018. Here are five cars that will be significantly restyled, as well as five that will be completely discontinued. These have the potential for the best deals because dealers want them gone ASAP. Q Ford Expedition/Lincoln Navigator „ Cheap gas means SUVs and crossovers are hot right now. So Ford and Lincoln dealers are ready to have the spotlight on fresh product. But the outgoing model is still a great truck-based vehicle that can carry up to eight people and have enough power to tow any toys. Ford is already offering nice discounts on the 2017 car, and the dealer is probably happy to negotiate even more off the price for someone inter-ested in the last few on the lot. Q Toyota Camry „ These sedans have earned a reputation for being tough as nails, but not always the most excit-ing. The incoming 2018 car is consum-ing the limelight with its new emphasis on personality. But for those who see their vehicles as appliances, the Toyota dealer would be very happy to knock some cash off the sticker price of the still-new 2017 sedans. Q Lexus LS „ Much like the Camry, the outgoing Lexus LS is not the most exciting machine. Of course, who needs to be captivating when providing one of the most solid luxury experiences around? Still, thats not stopping Lexus from currently knocking off thousands of dollars just for walking in the door. Q Chevrolet Equinox „ The new 2018 Equinox is a sleeker machine with a richer interior. Still, the 2017 model is solid and well equipped, and will be surprisingly inexpensive for the amount of features being offered. Q Honda Accord „ Honda is not known for offering the deepest discounts, and by the time it announced the 2018 Accord, it was getting its distri-bution network ready for the car. That leaves only a few 2017 cars out there, but nows the best time for a value price on those. As a special note, there will be no Accord coupe in 2018, so two-door fans might be especially motivated. Q Hyundai Azera „ With the standalone Genesis brand trying to sell the larger cars in the Hyundai family, the Azera has been canceled for the 2018 model year. But a quiet, comfortable, spacious and loaded sedan at a fair price always has appeal. And canceling the Azera means theres an opportunity to get even more value.Q Jeep Patriot „ The Patriot is being absorbed into the new 2018 Compass line. So, while there will be discounts on the 2017 Jeep Compass, the dead-end Patriot is getting hefty rebates. Its a little bit small; it feels a little bit cheap; but it has the cha-risma of unmistakably being a Jeep. Q Mitsubishi Lancer „ The soondeparted car is sporty but a bit dated. However, for rock-bottom prices on a decent sedan, the Lancer should be a good bet. Q Buick Verano „ Its tough to sell small upper-market sedans in an SUV/crossover culture, and so the Verano is going away in 2018. But for those who were going to buy a basic small sedan, the last of the Veranos might also now be within budget. Q Volkswagen Touareg „ This was developed when Volkswagen wanted to be a direct competitor to Mercedes. Thus, its a solid and luxurious cross-over. And for those who liked it but thought it was too expensive, now is probably the time to get deals as the Touareg yields to the larger and cheaper Volkswagen Atlas. There are some redesigned and canceled cars that didnt make our list. After all, well certainly miss the Dodge SRT Viper in 2018, but its a specialty vehicle that will never be in the bar-gain basement. And BMW likely wont discount the outgoing X3 as deeply as some of the less luxurious automakers. But any time there is a change with a vehicle lineup, theres also an opportu-nity for saving money. So before you go shopping this fall, know all the cars that are ripe for the best deals.

People are divided, tensions are high. Weve had natural disasters that have brought some parts of our country to the brink, and national trag-edies that threaten to tear us apart. But I know we will persevere. Ive made it a personal goal to sur-round myself with positive people and with things that make me happy. It isnt always easy. I was doing dishes in the dark after Hurri-cane Irma, and I had a sink filled with Fiesta-ware, from which my family, who had evac-uated Fort Myers, had dined on grilled cheese sandwiches. Most of the dishes had come from my grandmother Dorothy, who bought her set on an installment plan from a Pahokee merchant around 1936. It was the depths of the Great Depression, and she was in an unhappy mar-riage. But something about the bright colors lifted her spirits. They also lifted mine.When my grandparents parted company a decade later, she took her Fiesta-ware with her. It was 1985 when I found the dishes stacked in bean hampers in the back of a tobacco pack house on the family farm in South Georgia. There were dinner plates, cups, saucers and mugs. The jewel tones of the turquoise and yellow glaze shone through the two decades of dust that covered the dishes. I pulled them out, and my grandmother asked how much Fiesta was selling for those days. Dinner plates were bringing upward of $20 to $30 apiece at the time. I told her so, figuring shed want to keep them. But she smiled and gave them to me. It was a time of transition for me „ I had just graduated from college and was looking for my first professional journalism job. Those dishes inspired hope as I embarked on that journey, and have served me well over 30 years. My grandmother showed everyone the pictures of my kitchen in Delray Beach, complete with her Fiesta on display. It was pretty, and it was comforting. Theyre still on display and they still inspire a smile. And I know she would be pleased that theyre still part of the nurturing process in my family some 80 years later. Q Bought: T he Chur ch Mouse, 374 S. County Road, Palm Beach; 561-659-2154 or Paid: $14 The Skinny: Ive found all manner of objects at The Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Seas thrift store, The Church Mouse „ beautiful Russian porcelain, interesting Heisey and Fenton glass. But this Fiesta grill plate made me smile, and transported me to a time when restaurants and cafeterias had divided plates and trays. Homer Laughlin, the company that makes Fiestaware, called this orange glaze Red.Ž It was made with uranium and it will set off radiation detectors. Because of that, I probably will use it for display rather than dining. Q THE FIND:Fiestaware grill plate SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis Fiestaware grill plate was made between 1936 and 1942.

LATEST FILMS‘American Made’ +++ Is it worth $10? Yes Anti-heroes are a curious breed. Lawbreakers who buck authority curry favor because we like them and often sym-pathize with their plight. The fact that the yre doing something illegal is an afterthought. Isnt it inter-esting how easily movies get us to put aside our val-ues of morality, law and order for the sake of enter-tainment? In American Made,Ž which is based on a true story, our anti-hero is Barry Seal (Tom Cruise). Its the late 70s. Hes an airline pilot struggling to pro-vide for wife Lucy (Sarah Wright) and their kids. One day in a hotel bar he meets Schafer (Domhnall Glee-son), a CIA agent there to recruit Barry to take aer-ial photos of Central and South America. Barry does, and does it well, so more work follows, such as han-dling pickups and drop-offs with General Noriega in Panama. To this point Barry hasnt done anything wrong. Hes just following CIA orders. In Colombia he meets Pablo Escobar (Mauricio Mejia) and Jorge Ochoa (Alejandro Edda), who get him to smuggle drugs into the United States. And so the real, wacky fun of Gary Spinellis script begins. Years of smuggling both drugs and guns, followed by years of money laun-dering after Barry becomes filthy rich, ensue. We get the expected montage of lavish parties and everything going great, followed by the inevitable fall from fortune that often accompanies stories motivated by avarice. Through it all we like and root for Barry, in part because we know the U.S. government is giving him a raw deal, and in part because this is escapist entertainment that allows us law-abiding citizens to fantasize about the thrills of Barrys actions. A main appeal in this type of film should be its style, yet at times its lack-ing. Director Doug Limans (who made the tremendous Edge of TomorrowŽ with Cruise in 2014) soft, muted colors, coupled with a simplistic style to the camera work, means the film rarely explodes off the screen. This story, which is captivating, needs to resonate with period music, creative editing and pizzazz. After all, its a crazy movie about drugs, money and corrupt gov-ernments „ let the visceral experience of watching it also reflect that craziness. Thankfully, both the movie itself and Cruise (who seems a bit old for the role) are compelling enough to make Ameri-can MadeŽ worthy of your attention. Barry Seal may not be the most likeable anti-hero, but his story „ especially because its based on true events „ is not one you will soon forget. Q dan >> Barry Seal appeared as a character in two quick scenes in “The In ltrator” (2016) a good movie about a U.S. Customs Agent (Bryan Cranston) who exposes Pablo Escobar’s money laundering scheme. Stronger +++ (Jake Gyllenhaal, Tatiana Maslany, Miranda Richardson) After losing his legs from just above the knee in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, Jeff Bauman (Gyllenhaal) adapts to a new lifestyle with his girlfriend (Maslany), mother (Richardson) and friends helping him. Its an inspiring true story, and Gyllenhaals performance is Oscar-worthy. Rated R.Patti Cakes ++1/2 (Danielle Macdonald, Bridget Everett, Cathy Moriarty) Patti (Macdonald), an overweight white girl in New Jersey, dreams of becoming a rap star. Macdon-ald makes a splash in what could be a breakout performance, but the movie is too predictable to be truly memorable. Rated R.The Trip To Spain ++1/2 (Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Claire Keelan) Friends and comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon play versions of themselves as they sample fine dining and tourist attractions throughout Spain. Most of it is good conversation thats reasonably consistently funny, though it does get a bit too chatty for its own good at times. Not Rated: Adult themes. Rebel in the Rye ++ (Nicholas Hoult, Kevin Spacey, Sarah Paulson) Author J.D. Salinger (Hoult) struggles to be a writer and later struggles with success in this uneven biopic. Its a conventional movie for perhaps the most unconventional artist of our time … theres little doubt the real Salinger (who died in 2010) would hate it. Rated PG-13 Q FILM CAPSULES

B10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 5-11, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYcommercial apex in the mid-1980s. The other Yes lineup, which likewise owns partial license to the band name and uses it exclusively, now features longtime mem-bers Steve Howe (guitar/vocals) and Alan White (drums), who split along with origi-nal bassist/vocalist Chris Squire (1948-2015) from the lineup that included Mr. Anderson and Mr. Wakeman starting in 2008. The other Yes is now rounded out by singer/guitarist Jon Davison, keyboard-ist Geoff Downes and bassist/vocalist Billy Sherwood. The 72-year-old Mr. Anderson is the lone remaining original member from either incarnation, and his soaring alto range, all-around natural musicianship (guitar, ukulele, harp, percussion) and atmospheric lyrics have been the primary force throughout the b ands half-century together. Mr. Wakeman, 68, first joined Yes in 1971 to replace original keyboardist Tony Kaye. And his first song (Round-aboutŽ) on his first album (Fragile,Ž 1972) showed his impact. A classically influ-enced eight-plus-minute opus, the infec-tious track became a hit after being edited down to half its length to accommodate 45-rpm vinyl single status. The South Afri-ca-born Mr. Rabin, age 63, joined in 1983 to replace Mr. Howe. His first album with Yes, 90125,Ž produced a No. 1 single in Owner of a Lonely Heart,Ž the pop roots of which show how much Mr. Rabins songwriting and more processed guitar sound changed Yes. Id recently been signed by Geffen Records, and just wanted to make an album for them regardless of who was involved,Ž Mr. Rabin says by phone from Newark, N.J., before the band performed at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in late September. But this was all during that corporate rock nonsense era, and I wasnt seeing eye to eye with the Geffen folks, who were saying there were certain ways I had to do it. So they dropped me, and I had all this material. While shopping for a label, Atlan-tic Records told me that Chris and Alan were looking to put a band together. So I met with them, and we started working on what would eventually become 90125Ž before Jon came on board. We were called Cinema, but Jon came in and I loved what he brought. Id lost my job as singer, but wed gained an incredible voice. Atlantic wanted to call the band Yes, which I wasnt sold on initially. But I realized it was a business decision. And years later, with so many of the calluses on my hands Yes-caused, Ive become more accepting of it.Ž Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of its 2017 class in April, eight of the most important musicians among the long list of Yes members were recognized: Mr. Anderson, Mr. Rabin, Mr. Wakeman, Mr. H owe, Mr. Kaye (who didnt attend), Mr. Squire (posthumously), original drummer Bill Bruford, and Mr. White. Inducted by Rush bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee and guitarist Alex Lifeson, all attendees performed except the retired Mr. Bruford, with Mr. Lee playing bass on RoundaboutŽ and Mr. Howe playing bass on Owner of a Lonely Heart.Ž It was impossible for any of the participants not to have thoughts during the proceedings about Mr. Squire, whose gift-ed, elastic bass lines and harmony vocals proved integral to the Yes canon before he succumbed to leukemia more than two years ago. No other bassist has yet to appear on any Yes studio recording. We all miss Chris terribly, so it was, and is, hard not to have memories of him,Ž says Mr. Rabin. But Lee, whod played with Rick before, has really developed his own style. Hes learned Chris complex parts, of course, but he isnt trying to completely emulate him. And I recommended Lou, who was totally into it. Theyre a really strong rhythm section, and they both sing as well, which is a major plus with all the Yes vocal harmonies.Ž Mr. Anderson, Mr. Rabin and Mr. Wakeman first started working together in 2010, and have been sl owly recor ding a forthcoming CD since 2011. The singer is cur-rently limiting his interviews in order to rest his voice, but he commented on the enshrinement shortly thereafter on his website. Just so happy and excited that at last we are in the Hall of Fame,Ž he writes. Im just coming off a tour...with Rick and Trevor. We played a lot of the wonderful music of Yes and had the best time ever, reminding me of what really matters. That musical friendship and a sense of harmony makes the music shine, and thats what we did in the early 70s and 80s. And here I am again with Rick and Trevor, really hav-ing such fun. Being accepted into the Hall of Fame is like icing on the cake of life.Ž While Mr. Anderson has captained the vast majority of the 50-year sail of Yes into enshrinement, with Mr. Squire as his first mate, Mr. Howe and Mr. Wakeman each made huge contributions to the bands early navigation. Mr. Howe replaced origi-nal guitarist Peter Banks in 1970, and first appeared on the bands third release, The Yes AlbumŽ (1971). The transformative disc featured Mr. Howes mastery of both elec-tric and acoustic guitars, a trend that has continued through much of the Yes catalog since, plus contributions toward longer compositions, more complex instrumental themes, and increasingly choir-like vocal harmonies. When Mr. Wakeman replaced Mr. Kaye in 1971, he brought experience from myriad session musician recordings (with the likes of David Bowie, Cat Stevens, Elton John, and T. Rex), a classical music influence as the groups most schooled musician, and a wider range of keyboards including Ham-mond organ, acoustic and electric piano, harpsichord, Mellotron, and synthesizer. His keyboard wizardry, an image often enhanced by the addition of a cape to his wardrobe, first stood out on FragileŽ and the subsequent Close To the Edge,Ž both released in 1972. More tectonic shifts in personnel followed „ Mr. Bruford left to join fellow prog-rockers King Crimson „ even as the groups popularity increased. Mr. Wakeman initially stayed on for most of the bands remaining releases through the 1970s, leaving intermittently to record solo efforts and film soundtracks „ proj-ects that Mr. Rabin would also engage in during the 1990s. Id actually studied hard to become a conductor,Ž Mr. Rabin says, so Id done string arrangements, brass arrangements, and scored a movie by age 19. I ended up doing several Jerry Bruckheimer films, and also a number for Disney.Ž His scores include titles like ConAir,Ž Armageddon,Ž Enemy of the State,Ž Remember the Titans,Ž Rock Star,Ž Texas Rangers,Ž Get Smart,Ž Race To Witch Mountain,Ž The Sorcerers Appren-ticeŽ and Grudge Match.Ž Mr. Rabin first entered the Yes sphere in the early 1980s, after band members Mr. Howe and Mr. Downes (whod replaced Mr. Wakeman) became heavily involved with pop supergroup Asia, with King Crimson bassist/vocalist John Wetton and Emerson, Lake & Palmer drummer Carl Palmer. Mr. Anderson would return after being replaced for one album by Trevor Horn (Drama,Ž 1980). Mr. Squire, Mr. White, and even Mr. Kaye, absent for more than a decade, also reassembled for the more poppy, produced and concise 1983 release 90125.Ž Much of the change, which extended through the follow-ups Big Gen-eratorŽ (1987) and TalkŽ (1994), involved Mr. Rabins more concise songwriting con-tributions and instrumental sound. Trevor is amazing,Ž Mr. Anderson said on a recent installment of actor Alec Bald-wins podcast Heres the Thing,Ž even comparing him to Mozart. He can write scores and hear all of the music, like Ama-deus!Ž Before officially going in separate directions nearly 10 years ago, the Yes mem-bers past, present and future assembled to record the 1991 release Union,Ž and tour in support of it through 1992. Its eight participants, the same ones inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, were Mr. Anderson, Mr. Rabin, Mr. Wakeman, Mr. Howe, Mr. Squire, Mr. Kaye, Mr. White, and Mr. Bruford. Yet none of the CDs tracks involved Mr. Rabin and Mr. Wakeman recording together. Ive only recorded with Rick before for one of his solo albums,Ž Mr. Rabin says, Return To the Centre of the EarthŽ (1999). I sang, soloed and played rhythm guitar on the track Never is a Long, Long Time. But wed never recorded together as a part of Yes before, only played together on the UnionŽ tour.Ž Fans attending shows on the current tour, according to Mr. Rabin, should expect selections from throughout the bands career. Just not, he adds, any albums in their entirety or material from this lineups forthcoming debut. Ive never been a big fan of playing entire albums,Ž he says. We prefer to pick and choose, and create new flows of material, especially with such a catalog over all this time. As for the new record, one of the problems in this day and age is that, if you play any new material at a show, whatever stage its in, itll appear on YouTube soon thereafter. Which kind of dilutes everything. And frankly, the new stuff isnt ready yet. We have lots of mate-rial, and were pretty well into recording, but its unfinished. Were not even close to the mixing stage. We really want to get it out there, but when you spend so much time touring, it slows things down with the recording process.Ž The other Yes lineups latest release is Heaven & EarthŽ (2014), and it plans to tour Europe in 2018 to showcase 45th anniversary material from the 1973 double-album Tales from Topographic Oceans.Ž But any dreams of a 50th anniversary Re-UnionŽ tour with both lineups sound like a long shot. Especially considering Mr. Rabins attitude toward even such a commemoration with his own bands personnel. We want to celebrate the anniversary,Ž he says. But what do you do? I mean, youve gone out there, had some success and then grown quite old, so you have a 50th anniversary? It may be a great story, but it can become a bit of a clich. We want to be careful; to be sure theres more of a reason to go out there than exclusively a 50th anniversary. For us, playing together is already a reunion. And this lineup signi-fies the eventual final reunion.Ž Q cal relates the story of a gay couple who must pret end to be straight for one night „ with one of the men in drag „ to dupe the politically conservative family of their sons fiance. The original production opened on Broadway in 1983 and won six Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Book and Best Original Score. It has been revived twice since then, most recently in 2010, when it won three more Tonys, including Best Revival. Notable among its memorable musical numbers are I Am What I Am,Ž The Best of Times,Ž Look Over ThereŽ and Song on the Sand,Ž quite possibly the most famous love song sung by one man to another. Its a story about what was once considered to be alternative lifestyles, although I refuse to use that term any-more,Ž Mr. Lifshitz said. Its about two men in a happy, committed relationship who are threatened by demagoguery and bigotry and how they respond to it. Back in the 80s this was something people didnt want to talk about. Unfortunately, I think were still facing that from all fronts right now and not just in terms of sexual preferences or sexuality. You see it in reli-gion as well. So this is still a very timely musical.Ž Aside from the strong themes it advocates, Mr. Lifshitz said La CageŽ contains some of the most beautiful songs Jerry Herman „ of Hello, Dolly!Ž and MameŽ fame „ has ever written. They touch parts of you that you didnt know even existed,Ž he said. And when theyre done right, as our cast is doing them, people will be crying.Ž Mr. Lifshitz and his team might have been crying had Hurricane Irma taken a different path. We had to stop our set build early on,Ž he said. Our warehouse space was shut down two days before the storm and we werent able to get back in there until four days after. So we were shut down for virtually a week. Rehearsals were also delayed about that long as well. But magi-cally, everyone got caught up in just eight days. That can be attributed to our cast and creative teams amazing work ethic.Ž Featured in the cast are Michael Ursua as Albin and Larry Alexander as Georg-es. Other cast members include Aaron Bower, Clay Cartland, A.J. Cola, J.R. Coley, Jinon Deeb, Rebecca Diaz, Patti Gard-ner, Kimmi Johnson, Alex Jorth, Peter Librach, Rio Peterson, Christie Rohr, Ash-ley Rubin, Troy Stanley, Keagan Tanner, Pierre Tannous, Frank Vomero and Eli-jah Word. Kimberly Dawn Smith, who directed and choreographed A Chorus Line,Ž HairŽ and SpamalotŽ and choreo-graphed The World Goes RoundŽ and Company,Ž helms La Cage Aux Folles,Ž with Paul Reekie returning as musical director. We have such a phenomenally talented cast and theyre all Florida-based,Ž Mr. Lifshitz said. Most of our actors live within 30 minutes of our rehearsal space. And theyre extraordinary. We have not settled because we chose local actors. In fact, weve stepped up because we chose them.Ž He said MNMs goal is to engage and challenge its audience and inspire it to return again and again to see what else the company can do. With La Cage we have been given the opportunity to have a discussion on inclusiveness, something nobody is going to take away from us as a people in any way, shape or form,Ž he said. No matter what your choices are in life, as long as they dont hurt anyone else, nobody has the right to take them away.Ž Q YESFrom page 1LA CAGEFrom page 1 ‘La Cage aux Folles’>> Where: Rinker Playhouse at the Kravis Center, 701 Okeechobee Blvd. in West Palm Beach >> When: Oct. 6-22; evening shows at 7:30, matinees at 1:30 >> Cost: $45 >> Info: 561-832-7469 or Yes featuring Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin & Rick Wakeman>> When: 8 p.m. on Oct. 13 >> Where: Dreyfoos Hall at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach. >> Cost: $35-$139 >> Info: 561-832-7469 or

And I had not visited the Palm Beach outpost of Sant Ambroeus, which opened early this year in the Royal Poin-ciana Plaza spot that once was home to Del Frisco s. The space is beautiful, with patterned terrazzo floors and hues of orange, with a midcentury vibe. The food is Italian. We stopped in for dinner and dined from the Flavor Palm Beach menu. This dish, of gnocchetti pasta, also is on the restaurants regular menu. The shell-shaped pasta was tossed in a sauce made of San Marzano tomatoes. It was finished with a tuna confit, rather than the anchovies you often find in a puttanesca, leaving a clean taste that allowed the flavors of the olives and capers to shine through.

Were weary of hunkering down for hurricanes and are ready for nest-ing. Yes, Hurricane Irma turned our leaves brown.

Legacy of qualityThe Elephant’s Foot marks more than half-century of selling high-end antiques BY SCOTT SIMMONSssimmons@” oridaweekly.comMarvin Ray and Ronald French have nearly a century of combined experience in the antiques business. That experience shows in the care they lavish on the furnishings and accessories that fill the 6,500-square-foot showroom on Antique Row thats home to their store, The Elephants Foot. At age 12, I was exposed to good things and thats been my passion ever since is to be sur-rounded by quality furniture,Ž said Mr. French, who entered the antiques business 54 years ago. The Elephants Foot is filled with furniture made a century ago and more that glows with the patina of decades of use and polish. Back in the day, collectors filled the aisles of The Elephants Foot and other shops across the country. No, there are no collectors anymore,Ž said Mr. Ray. Well, not in the traditional sense.So, whos buying?Baby boomers, who either acquired a new condo or have moved,Ž said Mr. French. And where collectors used to spend months or years looking for that special piece. Now, sales tend to be for several items, particularly when youre dealing with furniture,Ž he said. People tend to buy multiple things now.Ž Antique Row increasingly has become a hub for designers, but they dont represent the bulk of customers along the row. We still do 50 percent designer business, though it used to be higher,Ž Mr. French said. The demographic skews older in South Florida, and that translates into business for The Elephants Foot. The collectors are getting rid of their things because theyre at the age where they have to,Ž Mr. French said. Where theyre downsizing, simplifying,Ž Mr. Ray said. The families dont want or the spouses dont want it,Ž Mr. French said. What do you do with all that stuff?Ž The children dont know what to do with it. Theyre more interested in their machines,Ž Mr. Ray said, laughing. The Elephants Foot buys merchandise directly and takes items on consignment. Every circumstance is different. Sometimes, its a lot of things, sometimes, its a few things. Sometimes they want to settle an estate quick-ly,Ž Mr. French said. The men place a premium on quality antiques „ better examples of furnishings from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Translated: They sell objects that are not mass-produced. The market for Victorian furniture essentially is dead, espe-cially in Florida. Antiques are more affordable than ever, the men said. The prices have come down,Ž Mr. Ray said. You can buy an antique for less than you can buy new furniture in many cases. And it lasts.Ž English sideboard dates from around 1800. This English tea caddy is clad in tortoise shell. A Dutch walnut and marquetry slant front desk dates from the 19th century. This Biedermeier buffet was built around 1850. SEE COVER, 5 XCOURTESY PHOTOS


FLORIDA WEEKLY OCTOBER 2017 LUXE LIVING 5 RETAILThey pointed to an Ethan Allen catalog, which listed a chest for $2,799. These antiques by the door are $2,900,Ž Mr. French said, gesturing toward a pair of Hepplewhite-style chests. Right now its all out of whack. People dont realize the great value now is in qual-ity antique furniture,Ž Mr. French said. That has been across the board.The Elephants Foot still has large selections of English china „ think Royal Crown Derby and Spode „ and lots of silver „ there was a spectacular 18th-century Paul Storr samovar sitting in a case during a visit early this summer. And there will be collectors for those „ after all, the best of the best still sells. So what if you have Mothers Rosenthal china or her Rose Point sterling? If you have it, use it. If it breaks, then so what?Ž Mr. French said. After all, as they pointed out, prices are down. People tend to be more casual these days, too. They dont want dinner services, they dont want crystal. They dont want any-thing that cant be put into the dishwasher,Ž Mr. Ray said. And, unless that silver is Tiffany, Georg Jensen or some great antique, in all likeli-hood, it will be scrapped the next time it goes on the market. If its good quality, good lines, its going to sell,Ž Mr. Ray said. Functionality is a big deal, too,Ž Mr. French said. But so is beauty.Its amazing how many people come in here and when they leave, they say, I feel like Ive been in a museum. We get so many compliments on the merchandise we have,Ž he said. And sometimes, those compliments translate into cash. The public is all over. Everything is cyclical. Staffordshire, chandeliers, Rose Medallion. Its just this business is not pre-dictable anymore. We dont know what to present to our customers,Ž Mr. French said. Maybe all that matters is offering the best. Were still enthusiastic, we still enjoy what were doing. Were optimistic that its going to continue,Ž Mr. Ray said. Trust your instincts, they say.If it sings to you, then you know you like it,Ž Mr. French said. Q „ The Elephants Foot, 3800 S.

First class, second handMan Cave heralds hommes on the hunt BY AMY WOODSawoods@” oridaweekly.comA man cave might not sound luxurious, but to the devoted denizen, it might as well have gilded ceilings and marble floors. The Man Cave in Jupiter has neither. The campy consignment store conceived by a past, present and future cavemanŽ instead has a towering taxidermy buck, a handmade poker table, a vintage jukebox and the all-important leather recliner, among other testosterone-teasing things. We love game mounts,Ž said owner Paul Pugliese, referring to the authentic antlered animal. They sell.Ž The 3,000-square-foot space that speaks to the specific sex sometimes serves brews-kis to browsers. We give them a beer out of the refrigerator, if they want, Mr. Pugliese said. For the girls, a glass of wine.Ž Yes, women are allowed into the sociologic showroom. They are cavewomen.Ž Because of my wife, daughter and sisters, I inherit a lot of girl-cave items,Ž Mr. Pugliese said. They are appreciated by the wives.Ž The predominantly pink products get placement in the back of the building. Its a relaxed atmosphere where someone can find a great deal,Ž Mr. Pugliese said. We pride ourselves on having merchan-dise that is in outstanding condition.Ž He works with more than 850 consigners to whom he returns 40 to 50 percent of sales. In the five years he has been open, those percentages have totaled $100,000. Inventory includes everything from bearskin rugs to massage chairs to neon signs, as well as electronics, memorabilia and sporting goods. Designer clothing by such brands as Brooks Brothers, Giorgio Armani, Robert Graham and Tommy Bahama fills the front of the store, along with a serious selec-tion of shoes. A $650 pair of barely used Churchs was priced at $149. Everything has to come in clean,Ž Mr. Pugliese said. Everything has to come in immediately useable.Ž Consigners range from downsizers who finally want to part with their vinyl-record collections to lifestyle changers who have taken up fishing after tiring of golf to wid-ows. The widow community is a big part of who we serve, and were very proud of that,Ž Mr. Pugliese said. We can help make something that is hard easier.Ž Retirees consign at the Man Cave, too. That is how the 71-year-old former Wall Streeter established the business. He left the investment-banking world a decade ago and began breeding Arabian horses. After his stallion Shadouza died, he started restoring cars. Both avocations left him with tons of tack and tools. I had all this equipment from horses and cars,Ž Mr. Pugliese said. I realized that all of these consignment stores catered to women, but there were no consignment stores for men. I decided to get a shop and sell some of my stuff and see if I could make a living out if it. It began slow, but it picked up the pace pretty soon,Ž he continued. I became the recipient of this void for an outlet for mens anything.Ž The past, present and future cavemanŽ said he knows what guys are going for, hav-ing had a man cave most of his adult life. I have years and years of experience with a man cave in my house,Ž Mr. Pugliese said. I have a feel for it from listening to customers and seeing how they react.Ž Whether a buyer wants to spend $3 or $13,000, a fashionable and/or functional find usually can be acquired. We want everyone who comes into the store go out with something,Ž Mr. Pugliese said. They key is to have a variety of inven-tory.Ž Inventory changes weekly, if not daily, at the Man Cave, attracting repeat visitors seeking to stock their sacred spots. Our customers are our friends,Ž Mr. Pugliese said. We know them by name or certainly by face.Ž Q „ Man Cave Consignment for Men, 1665 N.

6 LUXE LIVING OCTOBER 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYGETAWAY A slice of Europe on South BeachNo need to fly overseas for a vacation when Espaola Way is only a short car drive away BY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@” oridaweekly.comOn a sultry summer evening in Miami Beach the waiters at Hosteria Romana go above and beyond to keep custom-ers coming in and satisfied once they do. Their enthusiasm for each dish on the menu (from handmade pastas and pizzas to grilled meats and fish and hard-to-resist homemade desserts like tiramisu) cant be overlooked. But its not just the all-Italian wait staffs fervor for Italian cuisine and knack for reeling in diners that makes them such a hit. They put on a show „ singing, dancing and occasionally wav-ing napkins in the air until customers find themselves joining in. Not all of the music is Italian. Contemporary hits like DespacitoŽ and Shape of YouŽ get good play, too. Its hard not to get caught up in the beat, the fun. Welcome to Espaola Way.Espaola Way, between 14th and 16 streets from Washington to Drexel Ave-nues, was the first commercial street in all of Miami Beach. The city just spent $2.5 million to restore the street and its vibe to the artist village it was in the 1920s. Hosteria Romana is just one of 16 locally owned restaurants and specialty boutiques lining the pedestrian-only street. Another not-to-be missed attrac-tion on the street is the flamenco show at Tapas y Tintos ( Thursday through Sunday nights. We loved it. Other culinary hits for us on Espaola Way included breakfast at Havana 1957 (, a tradi-tional Cuban restaurant that transports diners to old Cuba; dinner at Mercato della Pesceria (, a market-style restaurant that features several culinary stations, including a fish market, meat market, and pasta-making station; and enjoying gelato and Melani Gelateria ( On our next trip, we look forward to checking out Time Out Market, a few blocks away on Drexel Avenue. Its due to open early next year. Food from the Miamis best restaurants, top chefs and stunning local works of art will be the draw. Unlike much of Miami Beachs architecture in the city, which is Art Deco, Espaola Way was designed in a Medi-terranean Revival style. The place to stay is El Paseo Hotel, a boutique property reopened this year after a $7 million renovation. A few blocks away from trendy Ocean Drive and Lincoln Road, the budget-friendly hotel has 71 rooms that stretch across seven villas. Elements of Spanish, Moroccan, Italian and French architecture are prominent through-out, and includes tile roofs, rounded archways and European inspired balco-nies. Rooms sport gauzy white curtains, ocean hues and bold pops of color inter-twined with pottery, books, blankets and framed vintage photos. An attentive staff checks in with guests daily to make certain all needs are met (need another blanket? Honor bar need re-stocking?). The hotels beach club is just three blocks away. Complimentary wine is served during happy hour in the hotels second floor library Mondays through Thursdays. We take pride in our authentic and unpretentious service that allows us to foster relationships with our guests while creating unique and tailored memories,Ž says general manager Luis Soto. A unique way to save some of those memories is offered, too, since guests have complimentary use of Spectacles, sunglasses with an integrated video camera that connect directly to Snap-chat via Bluetooth or WiFi and transfer images onto the users app. The El Paseo never lost power during Hurricane Irma. And theres always something new in the neighborhood. Yoga a la Espaola started on Saturday mornings last month and is already a hit. The destination had its first Noche de Coche, a monthly event geared towards families with small children who parade down the street in strollers, wagons and tri-cycles. And Papo Caf opened in September. (Cafe mocha, anyone?). Cant wait to get back. It was like going to Spain or Italy without boarding a plane. Q Balcony view of Espaola Way between 14th and 16th Street from Washington to Drexel avenues in Miami Beach. Espanola Way, between 14th and 15th streets from Washington to Drexel avenues, was built as an artists’ colony in the 1920s with a creative vibe that mirrored Greenwich Village in New York and Montmartre (artists’ quarter) in Paris. The street was later discovered by Hol-lywood and appeared in numerous lms, includ-ing “Chains of Gold” with John Travolta and “The Birdcage” with Robin Williams, as well as music videos with Elton John, Pitbull and appearances on Miami Vice. El Paseo Hotel, 405 Espaola Way, Miami Beach. The seven, twoand three-story villas that comprise the hotel have always been a bohemian’s dream. Originally built in 1925 as apartment buildings in the Mediterranean Revival style, the hotel appealed to Cuban artists who came to live in Miami Beach in the 1950s and ’60s. For 25 years, the building was known as the Espaola Way Art Center, housing such notable artists as Kenny Scharf, Miralda and Craig Coleman. Desi Arnaz and Al Capone spent many days on Espaola Way. Some of the rooms have full-service kitchens. 305-400-0767, Rooms at the El Paseo Hotel come with gauzy white curtains, ocean hues and bold pops of color intertwined with pottery, books, blankets and framed vintage photos. Flamenco shows are offered at Tapas y Tintos on Espaola Way Thursday through Sunday nights. Guests at the El Paseo Hotel have complimentary use of Spectacles, new sunglasses with an integrated video camera that connect directly to Snapchat. Dinner at Hosteria Romana, one of the most popular restaurants on Espaola Way.


FLORIDA WEEKLY LUXE LIVING 7DESIGN Q&AThe word on design from Joseph Pubillones FLORIDA WEEKLY STAFF If you could say one thing about designer Joseph Pubillones, it is this: The man never slows down. Hes not necessarily a jetsetter, but one week may find Mr. Pubillones fly-ing from West Palm Beach to Milan. Or Paris. And back. He has received national attention for The Art of Design, the syndicated column he writes. Heres a peek into his philosophy.Your clientele is as diverse as the projects themselves. How have you come to work on so many different kinds of projects? I think of every project like an extremely fine couture gown, individu-ally designed for each client so no two projects look alike. After being in busi-ness for 16 years, most of my work is referrals by word of mouth. Clients are usually repeat clients. I also work out of town for clients in South Florida who have homes elsewhere and that includes Canada, London, Spain and even the Caribbean, Puerto Rico and Jamaica. If you could expand, where would you most like to work more? The majority of my work is high-end residential and many are either second or third homes, but Id love to do more work in New York and California. What's your favorite home design trend right now? That would be kitchens that are almost sculptural in nature. I attended a few shows in Italy and the designs of kitch-ens are getting more compact, like work-ing machines that fit in the middle of the room, expanding as you need more. They may look like just an island in the room with components that open up to reveal sink, st ove, ov ens, wine coolers concealed behind doors. Probably by next year it will be catching on more in the states and people will revisit the attitude about kitchen design. This clean look is great for loft apartments and helps you maximize every inch of square footage into your living space. Certain trends have gone out of style. Which are you glad to see go? Here in Florida Im glad to see people adopt a softer approach to tropical dcor. Not everything requires a monkey or grass skirt or wicker. There are other ways to achieve a relaxed and laid back look without having to knock you over the head with a coconut. For a time, you would go to any condo and youd see that, but there are other styles that are adequate for interiors and a tropical cli-mate without having clich dcor. Do you recommend clients read architecture/design build books or magazines? If so, which ones? I always ask clients to produce a look book filled with pages torn from news-papers and magazines, even if they are not sure what they are selecting. Good designers are able to discern from pic-tures the type of color palate or themes the client likes. I live surrounded by magazines and have probably 15 or 20 different subscriptions from national and international magazines. It is a great way to keep current on a more global view of the design profession. Please share any advice you have for a homeowner embarking on new home construction, or any resources. Do your research. Interview two or three designers and make sure your per-sonalities are compatible and you are on the same page in terms of what the scope of work on the project. It will make the process fun and easy if it happens. What's the most over-the-top, luxury space you ever saw or developed? I have a project here in Florida that included an indoor pool for a profes-sional swimmer. Its someone who did not want to be bothered with whether it is sunny or not, too hot or too cold. Another client turned his whole living room into a workout gym because his whole life revolves around fitness. We had to do a little creative mix of lounging and exercise equipment.
