Along with all the traditional foods you cant not have sausage and peppers or meatballs or zeppole there will be representations of Italian foods from places you might not expect. Jerry Somma, director of the 15-year-old event, says there are two fun, main areas to draw foods from. One, we have to keep the customary traditions. Its all part of what people expect the Sunday family table foods that everybody knows. Even if they all had their own way of making the meatballs and the sauce, theyre still traditions, he said. SEE ITALY, A5 GLY. UNGAINLY. A NUIsance. Bullies. They defecate prodigiously. Not a very interesting species. Not that bright. Garbage ducks. Lazy. These are all ways Floridas Muscovy duck has been described even by people who like them with ugly being the most common. On an adult Muscovy ducks head, especially a male, there are patches of red bumpy flesh surrounding its beak, eyes and face, writes Charles Sobczak. This warty, ungainly face looks as if the duck has just come out of a radioactive enclosure and is suffering from a bizarre mutation. They also hiss instead of quack.

Or two. Or three. Its hard to keep count. And guess what? Come Nov. 11 well celebrate The Day Formerly-Known-AsArmistice-Day Nov. 11, 1918. Remember that day, the one that marked the conclusion of The war to end all wars? Now we call it Veterans Day. Before I explain why, I suggest you take immediate action. Instead of waving a flag or saying, Thank you for your service, dig $100 out of your pocket and buy yourself or somebody else a ticket to Wine on the Waterfront. A benefit for the highly rated nonprofit, Operation Open Arms, the wine will flow from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Matanzas on the Bay, a restaurant on Fort Myers Beach, Saturday, Nov. 11 (Veterans Day). For the money youll have to eat seafood, drink wines from around the world, and hear the lively singer Sheena Brook, a contestant on the NBC show The Voice. Better yet, every penny of your money will help buy a wedding, a vacation, or (we hope not) a funeral for an active-duty soldier, sailor, airman or Marine currently serving in a combat or overseas billet, and his or her family. The restaurant (with an inn if you want to spend the night on the Gulf) is 2 hours from Palm Beach, less than an hour from Naples, Fort Myers or Punta Gorda, and 7,723 miles from Afghanistan (in case you thought Palm Beach was too far). The founder of Operation Open Arms, Capt. John Giddyup Bunch, has spent 13 years working his tail off to embrace people he understands: combat veterans on active duty. Capt. Bunch is a fishing guide and Marine Corps veteran of Vietnam who defies the typical nonprofit need to pay his staff. Nobody in his outfit, including Capt. Bunch, ever takes so much as a single penny. Some 350 merchants and business owners people such as Doug SpiemSmith, who owns Matanzas on the Bay back him up with contributions. Helping these young men and women who go places and do things in our name none of us would ever want for ourselves or our children is probably a pretty good bet for good works, as defined by God, man and, say, the Knights of the Round Table. At its roots, meanwhile, Veterans Day is soaked in blood. On the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month of 1918, it became Armistice Day. At that moment the Germans, the Austrians, the Turks and the Bulgarians stopped shooting at the North Americans, the Australians, the British, the French, the Russians and the Italians. Who returned the favor. They had all agreed to end hostilities in World War I. The word suggests little more than an amped up schoolyard argument, doesnt it? But in reality, its chilling. Hostilities hardly does justice to the cataclysmic ocean of blood that soaked into the European continent and elsewhere between 1914 and 1918. The British lost more than 700,000 young people from its sceptered isle, as Shakespeare called it. The French lost 1.4 million. The Germans lost roughly 2 million, although World War I killed close to 3 million Germans, including military and civilian casualties. As for the Turks of the Ottoman Empire, German allies that many now forget? They lost about 25 percent of the population. That included as many as 772,000 battle deaths and about 5 million total dead. The Americans and Canadians were stung but not decimated except for every one of the families of every one of the dead. The Americans lost 116,000 men in just over a year; the Canadians about 53,000. But none of those stark numbers remembers the torn families whose sons or daughters vanished suddenly from the forward progress of the planet, leaving behind the roads untraveled: the loves and marriages never consummated that might have been; the children and grandchildren never born who should have been; the inventive work for the good never completed by the dead or their unborn progeny, that could have been. All of those lost souls were or they ought to have been our countrymen and women, or our fellow humans. Instead, they were people who either ceased breathing too early, or never breathed at all, but might have in the century following Armistice Day. As it turned out, though, President Dwight Eisenhower felt compelled to rename Armistice Day a mere 36 years later, in 1954. A little thing called World War II had superseded the war to end all wars significantly more devastating than World War I so the change was an easy sell to Congress and the American people. And now we have the current wars (Iraq, Afghanistan, Terror and a few others, it seems), following the past wars (Korea, Vietnam and a few others), with the threat of other wars looming. So what can we do? We can resist every other war ever to be conceived by callous old people and fought by fiery young ones. And we can embrace each of those who suffer wars on our behalf, the combat veterans with Operation Open Arms. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com Wine on the Waterfront, Veterans Day>> When: 5 to 8 p.m. Nov. 11 >> Where: Matanzas on the Bay restaurant, 416 Crescent St., Fort Myers Beach >> Phone: 239-463-3838. >> Email: email@example.com >> Event bene ciary: Operation Open Arms, OperationOpenArms.org; 239-822-8888; 3624 Bayview Ave., St. James City, 33956

We are supposed to believe that it bought the American presidential election last year with $100,000 in Facebook ads and some other digital activity. Frankly, if American democracy can be purchased this cheap a tiny fraction of the $7.2 million William Seward paid to buy Alaska from the Russians back in 1867 its probably not worth having. The latest obsession in the Russian collusion story, the Kremlins digital activity has generated headlines and put Facebook and all of Silicon Valley on the defensive, although this looks to be one of the most overhyped stories of the year. The Russians, as far as we know, bought more than $100,000 in Facebook ads between June 2015 and May 2017. A little more than half was spent after last November, when, obviously, Donald Trump had already won. The scale here is singularly unimpressive. A serious House campaign might spend $100,000 on digital. In a presidential campaign, the amount is a rounding error. The Trump campaign spent around $90 million on digital in 2016. Hillary Clinton employed a considerable digital staff, and announced she was spending $30 million on digital the last month of the campaign alone. If tens of thousands of dollars was decisive amid this tsunami of tens of millions, the Russian trolls working somewhere in St. Petersburg should strike out on their own and start a political consultancy or an internet publishing company. They are geniuses. It doesnt appear that much of the Russian material was explicitly advocating for Trumps election, and some of it wasnt even right wing. One Russian Facebook page highlighted discrimination against Muslims. Another promoted anti-police videos for a Black Lives Matter audience. A pro-gay-rights page was called LGBT United. Other pages were on the right and supportive of Trump. But much of the Russian Facebook activity was peddling online tripe indistinguishable from indigenous American online tripe in fact, it was ripped off from content produced by Americans. If the Russians are going to decide our elections on social media, one assumes it will require at least a little originality. One suspicion has been that the Trump campaign helped direct the Russian online effort. What we know about the Russian activity so far makes that doubtful. Why, if the Trump campaign was running its own digital campaign that was magnitudes larger, would it bother with a tiny Russian effort that wasnt always focused on Trump or his message? It is outrageous that Russians meddled in our democracy at all, and if there are ways to lock them out of our social media going forward, we should do it. Lets not pretend, though, that the Russian online activity was the key to the election. This is classic conspiracy thinking that some small secret cabal is responsible for a worldhistorical outcome that had much more obvious causes (Hillary Clintons poor campaign, for one). There may yet be truly damaging Russia revelations, and the Trump familys business dealings could always produce a nasty surprise. But all the focus on Facebook serves, for now, as a substitute for a smoking gun in the absence of a real one. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly COMMENTARYConservancy calls for state legislators to ban fracking BY NICOLE JOHNSONDirector of Environmental Policy Conservancy of Southwest FloridaAs the 2018 state legislative session approaches, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida and our more than 6,000 supporting families are asking our elected officials to prioritize and pass bills that protect our most valued resource: our water. These efforts are reflected in our top legislative priority, a statewide ban on well stimulation treatments (commonly known as fracking), which has been proposed through Senate Bill 462 and House Bill 237. We applaud the leadership of Sen. Dana Young (R-Tampa) and Rep. Kathleen Peters (R-Treasure Island) in filing these critical bills. These risky drilling practices use hazardous chemicals and can result in surface spills and water contamination. The science on well stimulation treatments reinforces these concerns, demonstrating that well stimulation treatments pose risks from surface spills, transport and disposal of the resulting toxic wastewater, and from the treatments themselves. Studies have also emphasized the impact of water use on local communities. Not only can fracking threaten the integrity of our water quality, but these stimulation treatments waste substantial amounts of our precious freshwater supplies. Well stimulation treatments use high volumes of freshwater mixed with toxic chemicals. Any water that returns to the surface after the well stimulation treatments includes trace radioactive elements and briny saltwater from underground. The water cannot be reused to replenish groundwater resources, which is the source of drinking water for more than 90 percent of Floridians. South Floridas oil is of poor quality, and Floridas reserves represent a mere one-tenth of 1 percent of the oil in the United States. The proposed legislation would still allow these reserves to be extracted by conventional methods, providing continued access by mineral rights holders. Floridas tourism and real estate economies rely on our natural resources, and have a direct impact on the quality of life for both residents and visitors. We cannot afford to jeopardize the quality and availability of our water resources for a one-time industrial use that benefits so few. Controversy surrounding fracking and fracking-like activities came to the forefront of public concern when an unauthorized fracking operation took place at the Collier-Hogan well, located near the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. Thankfully, in the 2017 legislative session for the first time members on both sides of the aisle within our state legislature recognized that use of well stimulation treatments are not worth the risk to our drinking water supply, water resources and Floridas environment-based economy. We are grateful to the nearly 50 elected officials representing about half of the Senate and about a quarter of the House who co-sponsored last years bills to ban risky well stimulation treatments. We hope to have even more support for the ban bills in 2018. There has been a groundswell of support across the state at the local level, and over 90 municipalities have enacted either local ordinances or resolutions to support a ban on fracking. Given the overwhelming public support across the state in conjunction with the plethora of scientific information regarding the unacceptable risks to water resources, it is time for the state of Florida to ban fracking. To learn more about this issue, the Conservancy invites the public to attend an information session led by Cornell Universitys Dr. Anthony Ingraffea, a leading researcher on unconventional oil and gas extraction. The complimentary lecture and Q&A will take place from 6-7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 8, in Eaton Conservation Hall at the Conservancy Nature Center, 1495 Smith Preserve Way in Naples. Seating is limited. RSVPs are required. Call 239-403-4207 or email SophiaN@ conservancy.org. JOHNSON

For instance, New Orleans theres a huge Italian influence there. The muffaletta sandwich from Central Grocery is world famous. In produce markets there, googootz (proper name, cucuzza), a type of long green summer squash could be found. You know googootz? he laughed excitedly. Its the Italian zucchini! My grandfather used to grow it in our backyard when I was a kid. Hed saut it with onions. He mentioned the 300,000 Italians in Puerto Rico, and neighborhoods filled with Italians in Tampas Ybor City. People dont think of Puerto Rico or Ybor City as Italian, but there are Italian influences there. Were everywhere. Also new this year is the raw bar, with fresh clams on the half-shell. This is a nod to the king of Italian street fests in the U.S., the Feast of San Gennaro in New York City. During the San Gennaro festival, youd walk up to the counter at Umbertos Clam House on Mulberry Street, and get an order of clams, and eat them while you walked around, he said. At the raw bar, calamari, oysters and other seafoods are on the menu. Italian street food is interactive, he says. Well have zeppole you cant have an Italian street festival without it, he said of the fried dough treats. Watch for the zeppole lean. Its people who know how to eat zeppole so they dont get powdered sugar on their clothes. They eat downwind and lean over to take a bite so the powdered sugar blows away from them. A lot of leaning takes place, he said, laughing, since diners also lean to prevent sauce from the sausage and peppers dripping on their shirts. Italians know how to eat walking. Its a thing. The free cooking demos, a highlight of the fest, will also have some new dishes, and for the first time, a wine-and-food pairing seminar that features food demos along with the wine pairings. Anthony Acampa, wine expert leading the feasts seminars, will oversee the matches. Area chefs will participate with Buffalo, N.Y., television chef Marco Sciortintino. the Galbani Cheese chef who heads up the demonstration pavilion. He looks forward to this part of the event that brings his fans back year after year. Its become tradition to joke and horse around with the guests and have fun. The guests are familiar with me and come back to see me every year. Ive gotten to know many of them. But this year, the recipes are new, he said. To keep dishes fresh and interesting, he incorporates tips and techniques to traditional dishes the fans come to expect.I like the way recipes this year are focused on quick and easy. People dont have a lot of time to cook theyre busy running around after work, he said. Tips on incorporating fast cooking and easy prep with the powerful flavors associated with the classic Italian dishes are his focus. Were doing a chicken Parmesan with fresh mozzarella over a pesto sauce with roasted cherry tomatoes. Its really quick and a more modern twist on the classic version, he said. Roasting the tomatoes brings out the flavors usually found after slow baking the dish, not needed in this version. The fresh mozzarella speeds things up, too. Hell bring in some lesser-used ingredients as well, he said. Well be doing a fresh fennel salad, with fresh mozz and a spicy vinaigrette. A lot of people dont know what to do with fennel, but its a great vegetable. The spice in the vinaigrette is from habanero sauce, with the olive oil and vinegar. It really goes great with the fennel. Other events include local radio personality Virginia Siniki, who will emcee a special lasagne cook-off between television reporters Felicia Rodriguez and Stephanie Berzinski from WPBF for the Golden Spoon Award. Entertainment, food and vendor booth sales take place all weekend; Sal Vaentinetti, a finalist of Americas Got Talent, will headline this year.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESFour-legged warriorsOn Veterans Day, dont forget to remember to honor canine service members BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationWarriors and dogs have been partners for more than 2,000 years. Courage at both ends of the leash those words are engraved on one of the many memorials throughout the world honoring military working dogs. Canine loyalty, intelligence, mobility and ingenuity are among the attributes that make dogs valuable to the armed forces. The most common breeds are Belgian malinois, German shepherd and Labrador retriever. Doberman pinschers were famous during World War II as the devil dogs of the Marines. One of the best known was Kurt, the first canine casualty on Guam, killed by incoming mortars and grenades after he alerted troops to the presence of Japanese forces. A war dog memorial on the island features a sculpture of Kurt by artist Susan Bahary and the words always faithful. It lists the names of all 25 Marine war dogs who lost their lives there in 1944. Not every military working dog fits the big and tough stereotype. Smoky, a 4-pound Yorkshire terrier, was adopted by Cpl. William A. Wynne after she was found in an abandoned foxhole on New Guinea during World War II. For two years, the little dog nicknamed Yorkie Doodle Dandy rode in a backpack, went on combat and reconnaissance flights and ate Spam and C-rations with the best of them. She proved her valor and value by warning Wynne of incoming shells and, most famously, pulling a telegraph wire through a 70-foot pipe with only an 8-inch diameter. Her feat saved ground crewmen from a grueling and dangerous dig. Another uncommon canine war hero was Sergeant Stubby, a Boston terrier noted as the most decorated dog during World War I. The official mascot of the U.S. 102nd Infantry Regiment, his exploits included alerting his regiment to mustard gas attacks and incoming shells, locating wounded soldiers and capturing a German soldier, grabbing and holding him by the seat of his pants. In the trenches in France for 18 months, he participated in 17 battles and was a celebrity at home. His story hits the silver screen, with Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero set for release on April 13. Todays combat dogs undergo rigorous training. In Afghanistan, dogs may wear cameras and scout areas before troops move in. They dont typically enjoy the same media exposure as Smoky and Stubby, but Belgian malinois Cairo, a Navy SEAL dog, stepped into the spotlight in 2011 after taking part in Operation Neptune Spear, during which Osama bin Laden was killed. Last month, five military dogs were honored at Capitol Hill with American Humanes Lois Pope K-9 Medal of Courage, awarded for extraordinary valor and service. The canine honorees were Coffee, a chocolate Lab who sought out IEDs and other security threats in Afghanistan; black Lab Alphie, an explosive-detection dog in Afghanistan who now works for the TSA; Capa, an explosives and patrol dog who also received the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal for meritorious service; black Lab Ranger, who served as an explosives-detection dog in Afghanistan and Iraq; and posthumously, Gabe, who was sprung from a Houston animal shelter and trained as a specialized search dog, a career in which he earned more than 40 awards. Approximately 1,600 dogs currently serve in U.S. militar y forces. Pets of the Week>> Lola, a 9-year-old, 76-pound female mixed breed dog, came here from Romania.

And yet their strange charm to some is undeniable. I want him! Abigail Murphy, 2, told her dad, TJ, pointing at a big Muscovy duck who sat on the shore surrounded by more slender and graceful white ibis. Iridescent green feathers shimmered in the sunlight on the ducks back, one of many Muscovy color patterns. Abigail and TJ, who is 27, often visit the ducks and other wildlife that live in a wide canal behind Bayfront Health hospital in Port Charlotte off Olean Boulevard. Shes absolutely in love with the ducks, TJ says. I mean, this is the type of stuff shell remember. Nearby, young Muscovy ducks drifted, three dark and one lighter colored. Found mostly in urban areas in Florida in canals, retention ponds in condo complexes or behind Walmarts, in gated communities, on golf courses and farms, they are both abundantly common and little-known, neighbors we havent cared to get to know. Native to Central and South America and parts of southern Texas, they are considered a nonnative, invasive species by the Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission, although by some accounts theyve lived here for hundreds of years. At the least, theyve been here since the 1960s. FWC has no population projection but there are thought to be tens of thousands in Florida. These birds have escaped captivity or were released illegally for ornamental purposes, FWCs website reads. Because they are an introduced species, landowners can remove them without a permit, but they cant relocate them on public land. That means theyre usually euthanized unless a private landowner or the rare shelter is willing to take them. Although the ducks are protected under animal cruelty rules, their status as an invasive nuisance makes them vulnerable to mistreatment, said Don Anthony, a spokesperson for the Animal Rights Foundation of Florida in Fort Lauderdale. Its an ongoing problem, he said. There are people who hate these ducks and are just unbelievably brutal and cruel to them they not just chase them but kill them. Some people purposely run them over when they see them in the street. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported in 2015 that a trapper was found bludgeoning mother Muscovies to death at a condo building in Pembroke Pines. And in Wellington, a groundskeeper allegedly laughed as he gunned his lawn mower over a flock of 11 ducklings The landscaper was charged with nine counts of animal cruelty. Although the ducks pose virtually no threat to human health, according to the Florida Department of Health, it has been suggested that they could spread diseases such as avian flu or duck viral enteritis to other birds. Those cases have rarely been reported. FWC didnt respond to a question asking what specific disease the Muscovy ducks could spread to other wildlife and how that compares to diseases other animals can spread. The most common complaint about them is that they can breed like crazy in heavily populated areas especially when people feed them and then poop on peoples driveways, sidewalks and other areas. The FWC recorded 71 complaints about Muscovy ducks in Palm Beach County between January 2014 and September 2017, the most of any Florida county, followed by Hillsborough County with 43. During that period, there were 20 complaints in Lee, 10 in Collier, and none in Charlotte County. FWC says the ducks have often divided residents who love them and those who hate their droppings, property damage and aggressive behavior. One of the few researchers to begin studying Florida populations of Muscovy ducks, Jacqueline Perry Cahanin graduated in May from the University of South Florida in Tampa with an M.S. in Environmental Science. They are kind of lazy, she admits, though she grew fond of them. I do like the ducks. She implores people not to feed them, or any wildlife. They have plenty of food, she said. Her graduate thesis, Abundance and Habitat Preferences of Introduced Muscovy Ducks (Cairina moschata) aims to assist land managers and property owners with habitat modifications in preventing or controlling nuisance Muscovy populations. Ms. Cahanins professor and mentor, Joni Firat, specializes in the study of animal movement. Lately that has included Muscovy ducks. I quickly learned that they are not well studied outside their native range, wrote Dr. Firat, associate chair at USFs School of Geosciences. So, my students and I have been studying Muscovy ducks to learn more about what habitats they use in Florida, as well as how they use them. She and her students observed individual ducks in the Tampa area to find out how they spend their time. We found that they spend most of the daytime in grass (41 percent), followed by ponds and their shorelines (25 percent), under tree and shrub cover (27 percent), and other urban habitats (7 percent), she wrote. They also spend the night roosting at the edge of the water or in trees. They feed in a variety of ways: gleaning foods from the ground surface, such as acorns, or insects; dabbling in the water; probing the soil for insects or other foods; grazing grasses and other small plants; and consuming bread and other food items offered by humans. Dr. Firat (along with the FWC and many others) says people should not feed the ducks, as she has noticed people doing on campus. It can cause their population to explode in a populated area, leading to ducks being trapped and euthanized. Although I do not recommend feeding wildlife, she added, frozen peas are a better option than bread in terms of both duck health and maintaining water quality. Duck HavenEunice Sivertsen, at 80, is Floridas and perhaps the worlds most dedicated Muscovy duck activist, spokesperson and caretaker. For 41 years, she has run the nonprofit Duck Haven, a shelter for Muscovy ducks at her home in Margate in Broward County. I think that the ducks keep me young, she said. Ms. Sivertsen, who moved to Florida from Long Island, is now caring for about 70 permanently injured and disabled ducks and finds homes for the healthy ones. I have blind ones, she said. One with half a beak. One with one leg She has taken in the ducks from all over South Florida, including from residents in Palm Beach County and the CROW clinic on Sanibel Island. CROW admitted 58 injured Muscovy ducks this year, and 43 last year. The most common injury is being hit by a car. Our rehabilitation licenses allow us to treat, but not to release invasive species back into the wild, says Dr. Heather Barron, CROW hospital director.

They are generally larger and heavier than their wild counterparts native to Central and South America, Mexico and southern Texas, and their color patterns come in more varieties. >> Key features: Their red heads, which especially in males as they become adult, develop into warty esh called caruncles around their eyes and beaks. Females sometimes lack this feature entirely, and are also typically much smaller than males. They also hiss instead of quack. >> Length: 28 to 34 inches. >> Weight: 5 to 15 pounds. >> Lifespan: Up to 12 years. >> Habitat: All 67 Florida counties. Unlike wild Muscovy ducks, which live mainly in forests, Floridas variety are usually found in urban and suburban areas such as condo complex ponds, golf courses, city parks and canals, as well as on farms. >> Number in Florida: Unknown. There are said to be tens of thousands. >> Diet: Vegetation, insects, small sh and crustaceans, spiders, worms, handouts from people such as bread. >> Predators: Feral cats, dogs, alligators, raccoons. Water snakes and lizards may eat their eggs. Owls, rats and other predators may feed on chicks. >> Breeding: Proli c. They lay from eight to 16 eggs and breed year-round. The eggs take about a month to incubate. >> Background: The birds are believed to have been brought to Florida at an unknown date, decades or perhaps even centuries ago, escaped, and then formed their own self-sustaining populations. The name Muscovy might be a reference to the Muscovy Company based in London in 1555, which brought the ducks from the Americas to England and France, though its unclear exactly where their name comes from. >> Legal status: Muscovy ducks are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, but the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has issued a Control Order allowing control of the Muscovy ducks and their nests and eggs in areas outside their natural range, including Florida. That allows control of the ducks by landowners, wildlife management agencies, and tenants, agents, or employees without federal or state permits. Florida and federal rules prohibit the release of Muscovy ducks on public lands.

of young, healthy Muscovy ducks brought to the clinic, we are sometimes able to find permanent homes for them. Otherwise, theyre euthanized. Ms. Sivertsen and her veterinarian can restore some injured ducks back to health. She urges people who want ducks removed to call her first before calling a trapper. She has a network of private farms including in West Palm Beach where she is often able to move healthy Muscovy ducks. Ms. Sivertsen started Duck Haven after watching a man drowning baby ducks and beating their mother, she said, in a lake near her home. Back in Long Island, she and her late husband had raised foster children, she recalled, and when they came to Florida, the ducks felt to her a little bit like that. I guess when I moved down here I took a liking to these ducks and I could see how when I would go out to rescue one, people said, theyre garbage ducks, theyre nuisance ducks, she said. That made it even more of a challenge for me to protect these ducks that so many people disliked. Over the years, the Muscovy population, like other animals, increasingly compete for space with people. Theyve often found themselves the targets of homeowners and condo associations, and other places that typically hire trappers to remove them. It is illegal to relocate them to public land, and finding private landowners to take in unwanted Muscovy families can be difficult. Instead, FWC allows humane euthanizing of the ducks, by trappers or by residents who find the ducks on their property. Thats what usually happens. Patrick Gibson, owner of Professional Wildlife Removal, said he prefers that the ducks are taken to a private farm. Otherwise theyre euthanized, with his preferred method being carbon dioxide poisoning in a cage. Its the least torturous method, he said. The duck goes in there basically, falls asleep and thats it. Noel Hanson, owner of Animal Rangers based in Wellington, does duck removals throughout South Florida. Over here theyre extremely abundant, he said. The biggest problem with them overall is theyre very prolific, especially if people are feeding them. The other problem with them is they defecate extensively much more, so it seems, than other water fowl. Theyre more like chickens and roosters and thats the way I view them. I view Muscovy ducks like as a farm animal, not a wild animal. He would not discuss his method of euthanizing because he said it upsets people. The Sun-Sentinel reported in 2015 that the wildlife commissions accepted methods of euthanization include carbon dioxide poisoning and pellet guns, as well as cervical dislocation, breaking the ducks neck, whether by hand or with a club. Sometimes they are sold to gator farms for food, Ms. Sivertsen said. One of the biggest misconceptions about Muscovy ducks is that they spread disease to humans. The Florida Department of Health in Lee County emailed this statement: No public health agency, including the United States Centers for Disease Control, has any evidence that Muscovy ducks or their droppings present any health threat to human beings. The sole exception is when small children, the elderly and those with immune system problems directly handle newly hatched chicks, then exposure to salmonella can occur. Instead of calling trappers who usually euthanize the ducks, Ms. Sivertsen and others recommend controlling populations first by not feeding them. If they are fed, she adds, especially in a residential area, it should be restricted to one location. People can also remove eggs from their nest and destroy the eggs. There are different methods. Mr. Anthony of the Animal Rights Foundation recommends you wait until the nest is full before taking the eggs or else the mother will lay more to replace the missing ones. USF graduate Ms. Cahanin said you should addle the eggs to destroy the embryo and then replace them in the nest. Having the ducks around is also a way to control other unwanted insects. Its very healthy to have a certain number of Muscovy ducks in your neighborhood because they eat roaches, palmetto bugs, mosquitos, all kinds of creatures we really dont want, Mr. Anthony said. And if you dont feed them Ive seen them walk through my front yard. They forage for food and they move on. The ducks once brought joy to Naples resident Mary Jane Briggs and her grandchildren in her Tall Pines neighborhood but also a lot of poop in her driveway, she said, bless their little hearts. It all started when my grandchildren were still young and would come to me after school and of course the mamas would be around the neighborhood with the baby ducks and they wanted to feed them and that started the process, and once you start feeding ducks, thats an ongoing thing. Before long, she counted 32 ducks feeding in her driveway every day. I loved watching them, she said. I loved watching the babies grow up and a lot of the ducks almost became like pets, but then I didnt like dealing with all the aftermath of having all the ducks on my driveway. That was nearly seven years ago. Since then they stopped being fed and their numbers dwindled or they went elsewhere. I think Mother Nature and the otters that live in the two lakes we have in Tall Pines have taken care of them and the population is quite thin right now, she said. Many communities have ordinances prohibiting feeding the ducks. In Lee County, Animal Services has the authority to declare Muscovy ducks to be a public nuisance and may break the eggs and humanely euthanize the ducks if they are found to be so. It also reads, The possession of or feeding of Muscovy ducks on public property and private property zoned residential is hereby prohibited. Davie resident Steve Rosen, 66, is an animal rights activist and entrepreneur who insists that the ducks legal status should be changed to native so they can be moved to public lands instead of being euthanized. Theyve been here longer than many people who consider themselves native, he points out, and blames their sometimes nuisance status on people feeding them. Mr. Anthony agrees. See, we create the problem and then we kill the ducks as if its their fault, he said.Yum yum duck While Muscovy ducks are known in the culinary world as being quite delicious, Chef Bruce Mattel advises that Floridas free-roaming, feral population are likely not, because of their diet. That could include bugs and flora tainted by polluted water and human handouts or even garbage. The one thing I dont think you want to do is indicate to your readers that those ducks will taste good, because they probably wont, said Chef Mattel, who is senior associate dean for culinary arts at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y. The smaller Pekin duck is the most popular duck in the professional culinary world, he said, though farm-raised Muscovy ducks can be substituted for most recipes. Muscovy ducks are also commonly crossbred with Pekins to produce a Mulard duck, used for foie gras. Farm-raised Muscovy duck is very delicious, he said. Compared to Pekin, Theyre a little richer, a little more minerally. The ducks can be roasted slowly for a very long time, he said. Or, often, the more tender breasts are cooked separately while the tougher legs are braised or prepared with a confit method. The breasts have to be served medium rare to rare and sliced thin for optimum palatability, he said. Bon apptit.

You Deserve the Best Care WORLD RENOWNEDPediatric Orthopedic Care HEALTHY LIVINGStaying healthy during pregnancyIn addition to being the CEO of St. Marys Medical Center and the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital, another important role of mine is being a mom to my son and daughter. I am happy to announce that this role just got bigger as my husband and I recently welcomed our third child. Were extremely excited for our new life as a family of five, and love getting to know our new baby daughter a little more every day. Im so grateful for the team of highly skilled specialists at The Birthplace at St. Marys Medical Center for not only helping me through my pregnancy and delivery, but also being there for my loved ones and helping us all prepare for the arrival of our newest blessing. When Ive had the opportunity to meet with community members, I make sure to ask for feedback on the various adult and pediatric services we offer, and one of the most popular topics is the maternity care provided at our hospital. Having just experienced my third pregnancy and reliving the necessary prenatal routines, I thought this would be the perfect time to address women and families who are either currently expecting or thinking about welcoming their own bundle of joy.Tips for prenatal careStaying healthy during pregnancy is especially important, not just for you, but for your baby as well. There are many dos and donts to think about while youre pregnant. Here are a few tips from our team of maternity specialists to help you stay healthy and have a healthy baby. Get regular prenatal care. Your health care provider will check your weight and blood pressure on a regular basis, while also watching your babys development. Certain medical conditions, such as high blood pressure or gestational diabetes, must be closely monitored. Its important to have sufficient amounts of iron to help your babys tissues and organs get oxygen, and folic acid to help prevent neural tube defects. Eating for two does not mean you should eat twice as much as you did before you got pregnant. Rather, the foods you eat should provide enough nutrients for both you and your baby. Most pregnant women need an additional 300 calories per day to help support a babys growth and development. Make smart food choices and eat well-balanced meals that include lean meats, fruits, vegetables, whole-grain breads and low-fat dairy products. If youre having problems with nausea, try eating five or six small meals a day, rather than three large ones. Drink plenty of fluids, but stay away from large amounts of caffeine. Folic Dehydration can cause premature or early labor. Avoid drinking alcohol while pregnant, as this can damage a developing babys nervous system, as well as cause growth retardation or facial abnormalities. Also stop smoking. Smoking is linked to stillbirth, prematurity, low birth weight, sudden infant death syndrome, asthma and other respiratory problems. Check with your doctor or certified nurse-midwife about starting or continuing an exercise program. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends that healthy pregnant women get at least 2 hours of moderate-intensity aerobic activity each week or about 30 minutes every day. Exercising regularly can help improve sleep, prevent excess weight gain, lower the risk of developing preeclampsia or gestational diabetes, and may reduce recovery time. Exercise can also help ease pregnancy-related problems, such as back pain, constipation, swelling and exhaustion. Personally, I experienced more back pain during my third trimester than the earlier stages of my pregnancy. To help relieve some of the discomfort, I would often take time before going to bed for stretches, twists and additional positions that would help me sleep more comfortably. To learn more about what exercises can help with your specific needs, speak with a certified pre-natal fitness instructor. Over-the-counter or prescription medications may not be safe for a developing fetus. If you were taking a medication before you became pregnant, ask your health care provider if it is safe to continue. Schedule regular dental check-ups as some pregnant women may experience red, swollen gums that bleed easily.

Mom, I hope you and Dad wont be upset, but would it be OK if Carly and I bow out of Christmas this year? The Marshalls have invited us to join them for Christmas week in Maui. How amazing is that? Tammy was stunned, and unsure of how to answer her son, Bryans, request. Bryan, his wife, Carly, and their three children had promised to spend Christmas with Tammy and her husband, Stan, at their home in Cleveland. Tammy had been anticipating the visit for weeks. Tammy understood why Bryan wouldnt want to pass up an opportunity to go on an all-expenses paid trip to an exotic resort with the Marshalls, his inlaws. But, it just wasnt fair. Bryan and Carly lived down the block from the Marshalls and saw them all the time. Tammy and Stan lived several hours away from the young couple and didnt get to see them nearly as often. Tammy felt uncharitable to feel jealous or resentful, but she found herself welling with tears. The Marshalls were friendly, good people and treated Bryan like a son. They had the means to regularly babysit and to offer lavish gifts, private school tuitions and vacations. Tammy and Stan were able to live a very nice retired lifestyle, but certainly werent in the position to help their children in a manner similar to the Marshalls. It wasnt that Bryan seemed unappreciative of the efforts Tammy and Stan made. Its just that Tammy felt that she and Stan always came in second. How can you do this to us? Tammy wailed. Weve been counting on you to come. You get to see your in-laws all the time. We hardly get to see you. Tammy hated to hear the accusatory tone of her voice. The last thing she wanted to do was put her son on the defensive, but it just wasnt fair.Most of us would like to think that we approach our lives by doing the right thing. We take pride in believing were reasonable and fair, and that were flexible enough to consider the positions of other people especially the people we love the most. Wed also like to think that we hold our resentments in check so that we dont overreact or pressure our loved ones to behave in obligatory ways just to please us. But sometimes, we feel so hurt and misunderstood, its hard to contain our emotions, and to restrain ourselves from saying things well later regret. For those of us who have adult married children, we may find ourselves commiserating with Tammy and Stan, from the fictionalized vignette above. These emotions are completely understandable each of us has invested considerable emotional energy into the bonds weve nurtured with our children since the time they were little.Intellectually, weve also known that when our children marry, its important for us to make a key adjustment, giving our children the room to comfortably integrate into their new extended family as well. Weve known the importance of reaching out to the other family warmly, even if we knew they were very different people, or if wed never have picked each other on our own as friends.But it would be a bitter pill to swallow to entertain the possibility that our children could enjoy being with the other family more than they would with us. It would be painful for any of us to accept what in some instances can become a cruel reality. There are occasions where our children will develop stronger ties with their in-laws and may spend more time with them. It may feel as if this other family has become more important to our child than we are. There are many reasons this can happen: Our childs mate may be fiercely loyal to their own family and may have a strong say in the emotional direction of their union. Our childs mate may have strong feelings about us. We also must consider finances, geographical proximity, the emotional history of our own families and the impact on how close our child has felt toward us throughout his/her life. We must ultimately decide if we will accept having a relationship that might not be what we had envisioned, and if were open to move forward in a way that will maximize the relationship that we do have. Sometimes we may have to overlook what we may perceive as slights, or to show diplomacy when we bring up upsetting things. In the above vignette, the worst thing for Tammy and Stan to do would be to put their son on the defensive, so Bryan and Carly feel theyre being asked to take sides.Tammy and Stan should be careful not to say anything negative about the Marshalls. They should assume that whatever they say to Bryan likely will be repeated at some point to Carly. In all likelihood, she will remember their words and hold it against Tammy and Stan. Focusing on maintaining their unique bond with Bryan can be a roadmap to guide Tammy and Stan on how to proceed. They should remember that most of us have room in our hearts to include new relationships, without compromising existing ties. With this in mind Tammy and Stan should reiterate to Bryan how important he is to them and how much they want to stay close. They can express sensitivity to the fact that they know it must be difficult for the young people to integrate two sets of parents. It might be preferable for the older couple to reach out to their children, arranging experiences that would be special to the four of them. Tammy and Stan should be able to create opportunities and events to enjoy with their children that will be uniquely theirs.

The beefy stance and terrain-chewing appearance makes everyone else assume your driveway is an off-road racing circuit. But the redesign for 2017 adds an unexpected element civility. The first Raptor was intended more as a halo model for the rest of the trucks. Just like Ford uses Cobra/GT350/GT500 packages to attract sports car buyers to the Mustang line, this was poised as the ultimate eye candy with true offroading ability. It could lure people into the showroom where they would buy a more commuter-friendly F-150. But that didnt happen. Instead, Fords truck customers (and many others) put their money down for the real thing. Most people didnt complain that the Baja 1000 level of suspension travel was too bouncy for parking lot speed bumps. These first buyers knew what this truck was about, especially in Florida, where theres genuine appeal for a vehicle built to run hard in the sand. But Ford also has been wise about re-evaluating the Raptor for the second generation model. Just as before, the new truck is out to get adrenaline pumping at first glance. Extra wide fenders, beefy 17-inch wheels w/chunky tires, skid plates and a tall stance are all pure intimidation. And the Raptors exclusive grille spells out F-O-R-D in big block letters like it wants to stamp its name into the tailgates of any pickup that dares get in front. In fact, aside from the cab and the headlight style, its hard to see much of the original F-150 in the Raptors design. Inside, the lineage is clearer. Plenty of components are borrowed from the F-150, including the dash layout and infotainment system. But the more pedestrian versions dont have features like the Terrain Management System. This not only optimizes performance for everyday traction situations like rain or ice, but also theres a setting that will enable the truck to perform Baja-like high-speed 4x4 runs. And being able to hit highway speeds where there are no roads is the Raptors specialty. The standard F-150 frame is reinforced in all the right places; the bumpers maximize approach/departure angles; and the pricey internal bypass Fox Racing shocks are standard equipment. Theres more to this Raptor hardware upgrade, but wed have to break out the off-road glossary to explain it all on this $51,080 truck. Just know that people who understand what a desert pre-runner is are already excited about this one. None of this ability is surprising, because its what made off-roaders fall in love/lust with the first-generation Raptor. The difference with the new truck is that Ford has left all of the beach storming ability, and added more usability. It starts with the motor. Gone is the 6.2-liter V8, and in its place is a 3.5-liter V6. Its a twin-turbo unit producing 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque nearly a 10 percent and 18 percent jump in respective figures. The all-out raucous rumble of the V8 is replaced by some of the turbo blow off valve whoosh, which is an added thrill for some people, but the real benefit is economy. The V6 combines with lighter body panels, better aerodynamics, and a new 10-speed automatic transmission (with multiple overdrives) to deliver a 23 percent increase in average fuel economy. Greenpeace wont praise a jump from 13 mpg to 16 mpg, but that can mean an extra day between fill-ups and a genuine cost savings for the daily drivers. And Ford seems to be aiming the new Raptor at people who are going to use it for more than just storming the beaches. A bit of bounce is unavoidable with the 13-inch suspension travel this one needs, but it never feels like a trampoline on the road even in hard start/stop maneuvers. The 4x4 system continues to have true high/low locks for real off-road work, and now theres an automatic setting for more everyday wet weather situations. The extra-wide stance fills the road more than the standard F-150, but Ford also offers an optional lane-keep assist for those who need to drive in tight urban spaces. The Raptor is always going to have appeal to Floridians who like to play in the sand on the weekends. But the new one is not going to make you regret your purchase when its time to drive to work on Monday. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com
A16 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYafter an absence of a few years. Its a nice event for Naples. Theres not much going on showwise there, but there are some great shops and good antiques and good interest in fine things, she said. If Mrs. Allmans shows offer high-end antiques, the West Palm Beach and Naples shows run by Palm Beach Show Group kick it up a notch even higher. We offer a broad section of fine art, antiques and jewelry from 2,000 years ago to today, said Scott Diament, the companys president and CEO. Objects there may be priced from a few hundred dollars to the millions. Im certainly offering things at my events other than what others are offering, he said. Most shows are either smaller or are not vetted shows or they have a different product mix. Hes especially proud of the range of lectures and the pure entertainment value of visitors being able to see things they wouldnt see elsewhere. Mrs. Allman and her husband, Steve, also promote shows in New York and across the Midwest, and they have a winter home in Naples. The west coast is getting more and more in tune with antiques, art and design. It used to be primarily the east coast, but on the west coast now, its like a little shopping mecca in a lot of places, including Punta Gorda and Arcadia, she said. Mrs. Puchstein banks on the camaraderie of the shows. I think seeing all the people, all the dealers you havent seen since last season its like a class reunion, she said. Her November show will have a couple of hundred dealers from across the country. That number climbs to around 1,000 during the February extravaganza, the Puchsteins biggest show of the year. That show has changed over the years as tastes have changed. In the 1990s, vendors brought out traditional collectibles porcelain, glass, antique furniture and silver. You still see those items, but customers seem to be more geared toward buying objects for their decorative qualities. There also is a lot of jewelry these days. It makes it difficult because these young kids want modern and a sparse look, Mrs. Puchstein said, adding, People still like to come and look. Shes counting on that as she adds two overlapping shows one at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek (Jan. 5-7) and one at the Miami-Dade County fairgrounds (Jan. 6-8). She expects the Coconut Creek show to be a smaller show, with high-end vendors; the Miami-Dade show will be a traditional mix of antiques and collectibles. That highlights the difference in markets from one coast to another, too. Traditional antiques are the stalwarts of the Allmans Punta Gorda and Venice shows. Its really good American furniture, quality lighting, paintings things like that, Mrs. Allman said. Original finish furniture, smaller pieces of furniture and portraits. The majority of the show is made up of fine antiques silver, really good glass. Bill Pitt brings in some of the best paperweights Ive seen. Shes especially pleased with the quality of the venues the Naples show will be held in a luxury hotel. The Charlotte Harbor Events Center was completely rebuilt after it was leveled in 2004 by Hurricane Charley. And Venice is no slouch. The community center is sweet and elegant, with beautiful designs, Florida architecture, she said. It kind of lends a sophisticated look to the show. The tony Palm Beach County Convention Center, where Mr. Diaments show will be held, is no slouch, either. Nor is the pavilion where he hosts his Naples show. He loves seeing the process that led to objects creation. Visit Pottery Barn, he said. Lots of this was copied from major design. Come to a show that we put on, you can see the thought process that led to it. That makes an object so much more interesting. Up North, Mrs. Puchstein deals in fine Early American furniture. Recent acquisitions include a toy wagon, a sheep painting, a tramp art frame and a piece of blue and white stoneware pottery. But shes just as delighted to add to her Patti Playpal collection. Mrs. Puchstein has 42 of the large-scale dolls, made by the Ideal Toy Company for three years in the early s. The gang I think its an orphanage. I could be doing worse than collecting doll babies, she laughed. Shes a consummate collector, but perhaps Mr. Diament says it best about collecting. He knows it when he sees something special. I would say that I almost get this tingling feeling, he said, adding, When something really stimulates you. I guess it makes you feel more complete. Hes been collecting since he was a boy. Mr. Diament has in his office a gold nugget thats soldered in the bottom of a 19th-century gold-mining pan. I really got chills when I saw it. Youre digging around the dirt and this nugget appears, he said. Thats what all collecting feels like to me. Its almost a symbol of all collecting that you work really hard to find these objects, then when you see it, it speaks to you.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE A19 When you buy your new car, your salesman will tell you that it has a bumper to bumper warranty. The most common coverage is for three years or 36,000 miles, whichever should first occur. Bumper to bumper warranty sounds like it means that everything is covered. Unfortunately, this is not the case. For example, your tires are not covered at all by the car manufacturer but under a separate warranty by the tire manufacturer. It can be tedious, but the only way to completely understand your warranty is to read it. All warranties now are required to use the word limited unless there are absolutely zero exclusions and this, to the best of my knowledge, is never the case. Some of the most common items that are mistakenly believed to be included in warranties are tires, rental car coverage, maintenance, and faded or damaged paint from various kinds of air contaminants. I dont know why all car manufacturers choose to exclude tires from their bumper to bumper warranties. After all, they choose the tire manufacturer just like they choose the manufacturer of other components on your car that they dont manufacture themselves, like the sound systems. The owner of a car has an established relationship with the service department of the dealership because she is bringing her car back every 5,000 miles or so for factory recommended maintenance. In most cases, she doesnt even know who the tire dealer is. It would be far more customer friendly for the manufacturer to allow her dealer to handle warranty claims on tires. My suggestion is to ask your dealers service advisor or service manager to broker the warranty claim on your tires on your behalf. The dealership is more likely to have an established relationship with a tire store and they can be your advocate. New car warranties virtually never provide for a free rental car unless the vehicle must be tied up overnight for repairs. All too often, car salesmen will promise you a free loaner anytime your car is in for service. Verify this with the service department before you rely upon it. There are extended service contracts which you can buy in addition to your new car warranty which will provide rental car coverage. A new car warranty covers only repairs not maintenance items. A very common request is that a front-end alignment be performed under warranty. Your alignment should have been checked before your car was delivered. If your car goes out of alignment after delivery, it is usually considered owners maintenance. Brakes are another item often misunderstood as being covered under warranty. Brake wear is almost always a maintenance item. Only a mechanical defect in your brakes is covered under warranty.

CANVAS set to cover Lake Worth in artLots of folks refer to Lake Worth as arty. But the city itself is about to become a museum. Come Nov. 26, CANVAS Outdoor Museum Show, the nations largest outdoor museum show, will expand to Lake Worth. Artists from around the globe will assemble in downtown Lake Worth for a one-week run that ends Dec. 2 to transform the citys streets into an outdoor museum. Blank walls will be reimagined with murals, and shipping containers, art installations and interactive sculptures will be showcased in high-profile locations within walking distance of the downtown corridor. CANVAS is leaving a permanent footprint for visitors to enjoy year-round. Its very exciting to bring this caliber of public art to the heart of downtown Lake Worth to define a thriving arts district, CANVAS Outdoor Museum Show founder and curator Nicole Henry said in a statement. When curating this years show, artists were selected based on their innovative ideas and interactive components to their work. We really want visitors to experience and interact with the art around the city. Participating artists will embrace this years theme of unity by expressing how art brings people together when there is so much division in the world. Visitors will be able to interact with artists working in real time to create public masterpieces. CANVAS will announce the artists and locations leading up to the live artwork. The city of Lake Worth, Lake Worth Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) and the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County worked collaboratively to bring this event to the city. Additional donations will be provided by 120 SPACE and Florida Food & Farm. The city, CRA and Cultural Council also are working on finalizing an Arts & Cultural Master Plan for downtown Lake Worth, which would be the first of its kind in Palm Beach County when it is released next year. Visitors can download the free CANVAS Outdoor Museum app from the Apple or Android stores for a self-guided tour of this years exhibition.

Photo by Matthew Murphy. WINNER OF 4 TONY AWARDSINCLUDING BEST MUSICAL REVIVAL COLLECTORS CORNER The patina of time lends layers of character scott SIMMONS email@example.com Its officially the start of antiques season in South Florida, and Im excited. You should be, too, and heres why: Its history were seeing. We dont want to dwell on the past, but theres so much to learn from it. Theres nothing more satisfying to me than seeing the well-worn arm of a much-loved chair or a piece of silver that has the warm patina of use and polishing. Those marks bring character to a piece, often lending it a meaning it might not have otherwise. But that doesnt mean one has to dwell in a museum. And it doesnt mean that one needs to have an attic filled with family treasures. Rather, it means looking at something and recognizing the labor that went into it the blade marks on a table that has hand-turned legs, the thumband fingerprints you may see in old roof and decorative tiles, the dainty brushstrokes on a hand-painted piece of porcelain or glass. Thats art, craft and history, all rolled into one. Scott Diament, president and CEO of Palm Beach Show Group, which produces tony antiques shows across the nation and in West Palm Beach and Naples noted that during a recent interview. Something like the Martin-Baker ejection chair might have cost millions of dollars to design, but today you can put that in your office, he said. Its fascinating that so much money was spent to make these objects and items that had a function, but now you can buy them as an object of 20th-century design. Perhaps thats why elements of industrial design remain popular with collectors and decorators alike they have that bit of history that lends a layer of complexity. I like to look at my own collecting as sifting the layers. I find something, display and then move it on when something more interesting comes along. You have to search the layers in your quest for treasure. Ill repeat my advice from a few weeks ago: Always expect the unexpected. Dont be afraid to dig around the fabulous may be buried in the mundane. Always retrace your steps. You never know what you missed on your first pass. I typically score my best finds on the second pass. And let me add to that: Be creative in how you use things. That Victorian chest may be perfect as an end table, and those old saws may make a great graphic statement as wall art. Finally, have fun! Bought: Good will R etail & Donation Center, 91 S. Lee St., LaBelle; 863-6758585. Paid: $1. The Skinny: You never know when or where you will find treasure. And thats why I always stop at the LaBelle Goodwill as I make my way across the state. Id sworn off buying individual plates without mates I dont need any more odd sets. But you almost never see enameled pieces like this dinner plate made in Ohio by Heisey between 1909 and 1935. The flowers still glow, despite being nearly a century old. And being Heisey, the plate sparkles and catches the light in each nook and groove. I love that Heisey took the time to polish the bottoms of its plates, so even after all these years, the quality shines through.

FLORIDA WRITERSPolitics and power block the truth about a mysterious disappearance Naked We Came by Robert Lane. Mason Alley Publishing. 355 pages. Trade paperback, $14.95; Kindle e-book, $4.99. Robert Lanes fifth Jake Travis novel has plenty of the authors familiar mix of grit and literary style plus a more personal premise than the earlier titles. When a man who was the primary suspect in his missing sisters disappearance is found dead on the beach near Jakes home, the floodgates of emotions long held in check open and threaten to overwhelm him. Why now, 30 years after Brittanys abduction, has this man Hawkins been left to be discovered? Is the confession he wrote just before his body washed ashore genuine or coerced? Jake feels the latter is likely and believes the identifying DNA evidence has been manipulated. The discovery of the corpse raises hundreds of questions, but three are central: What happened to Jakes slightly older sister, whom Jake last saw when she was 7 years old? Is there any chance that she is alive? And was Jake in any way responsible for leaving her vulnerable? Riddled with long-suppressed despair and guilt, Jake commits himself to finding the answers and meting out personal justice to whoever is responsible for his sisters longago disappearance and possibly her death. All of his investigative and martial skills, along with those of his loyal friends and the understanding of his devoted girlfriend, are called on to sustain him in this time of raging personal need. Before long, Jake discovers that people in private and governmental corridors of power are determined to thwart his quest. The truth about what happened to Brittany includes secrets they need to keep hidden. Following up on the long-terminated official investigation of her disappearance does not get Jake far, but it does bring the forces arrayed against him to attention. Searching for a starting point to pursue the decades-old crime, Jake retraces events at the Southwest Florida Vanderbilt Reef Motel, where he and his family were vacationing when Brittany disappeared. His efforts lead to three linked figures who would have been young men spending time in the area back then. Well-connected attorney Bernard Carlsberg is one of them. Carlsberg has a connection to a shady Russian wheeler-dealer named Peter Omarov. And Omarov has connections to U.S. government agents who protect him because he is a valuable source: a conduit to whats going on in Russia and Ukraine. The third man, David LeClair, is clearly a key but Jake learns that LeClair has been dead for almost as long as Brittany has been missing. Indeed, there is a much wider net of characters caught up in each others lives and in the puzzle that Jake is determined to solve. Alex Brackett is one of the most interesting. There are also several colorful and important female characters from whom Jake draws clues and compassion. The labyrinthian unfolding of the plot will keep most readers hooked, but a few might get somewhat antsy as the twists and turns pile up and the demands on their memory increase. Mr. Lane plays the Russian connection card in ways that playfully echo contemporary speculations about a certain U. S. president. And as in his earlier novels, he draws readers into the sensory character and abundant charms of Floridas Gulf Coast. Jake is so fully at home there, so interactive with his beloved environment, that were he not such an undercover kind of guy he might merit a seat on a tourism bureau. Other settings, such as Chicago, are also put to good use. Once again, Jakes beloved Kathleen plays a major role, not only as romantic partner and confidante, but also as a soldier in Jakes scheme to bamboozle and draw out his adversaries. His buddies Morgan and Garrett are on hand, as ever, to do his bidding and lend their own special insights and talents to the troubling matters at hand. What else? This heart-racing thriller is just dripping with style. Award-winning novelist Robert Lane, like his protagonist, hangs out in Southwest Florida. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. f philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com LANE

NoGeorge Clooney, Matt Damon, Julianne Moore. All Oscar winners, all Hollywood royalty and all part of the absolute misfire that is Suburbicon, a mistake of a movie that will be a stain on their careers. How could three people who are so good at what they do veer so far off track? Suburbicon is the name of a small town circa 1959. On the surface the Lodge family represents 1950s Americana as history likes to remember it: Mom Rose (Moore) stays home, son Nicky (Noah Jupe) goes to school, dad Gardner (Damon) works a corporate job. The community is safe and self-contained, seemingly perfect for raising a child. Yes, things couldnt be better for the Lodges, save for the fact that Rose was in a car accident and is now bound to a wheelchair. Regardless, her twin sister Maggie (Moore again) helps out, so all is happy on the home front. Then the unthinkable happens: A home invasion leaves Rose dead. Nothing like this ever happens here, the local ladies say. But it did happen, and the ugliness of both the town and the Gardner family is exposed. There are cover-ups, betrayals, murders and an insurance investigator (Oscar Isaac) who smells something fishy. All of this is as predictable as it comes, right down to Gardner and Maggies real plans and their subsequent incompetence. Meanwhile, the subplot features the Myers family, newcomers to the neighborhood who are African-American, and unwanted. Riots break out in front of their home, and at one point a Confederate flag is left on their window. This blatant racism ultimately has no bearing on the main story, so you have to wonder why its included at all. If Clooney, who directed and co-wrote the script, is providing commentary on civil rights or racism, the message doesnt come through. The film is also so ignorant that it forgets to have a good guy, a main character who fights for a better world. Without a hero, viewers dont get emotionally involved, and they leave the theater either angry at the films incompetence or (worse) indifferent to everything theyve just seen. The only decent human beings in Suburbicon are Nicky, whos an innocent child incapable of protecting himself, and a couple of minor supporting characters, including Nickys Uncle Mitch (Gary Basaraba). Thats not enough. One suspects Clooney and cowriters Grant Heslov and Joel and Ethan Coen (yes, the Coen Bros., who created the story then passed it to Clooney and Heslov for the screenplay) wanted to show the shadiness that could lie behind the shiny veneer of an idyllic s family. Sadly, that is completely lost. Instead Suburbicon has a mostly humorless, light tone and a color palette that belies the darker story elements. And the social commentary just doesnt work on any level. Clooney, Damon and Moore will be better again, no doubt. But Suburbicon is one entry in their canons that you can skip. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> A few scenes starring Josh Brolin as a baseball coach were cut from Suburbicon after a test screening.Did you know? CLOONEY DAMON MOORE PUZZLE ANSWERS FILM CAPSULESBreathe (Andrew Garfield, Claire Foy, Tom Hollander) Paralyzed in his prime from polio, Robin (Garfield) finds new meaning in his life thanks to his wife (Foy) and other loved ones. Garfield and Foy are strong as the leads, and its ultimately a hopeful story thats not as depressing as it looks. Rated PG-13. Only The Brave (Miles Teller, Josh Brolin, Jeff Bridges) Firefighters in Arizona bond and battle wildfires in this dramatic true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots. Its not perfect, but its moving enough to do the real people justice. Rated PG-13.Happy Death Day (Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine) Sorority girl Tree (Rothe) is murdered, then relives the day until she can find the killer. Its illogical and lame, with few original ideas and plenty of logical gaps. Rated PG-13.Victoria & Abdul (Judi Dench, Ali Fazal, Michael Gambon) The friendship between Queen Victoria (Dench) and an Indian servant (Fazal) late in her life is chronicled in director Stephen Frears latest. Its a bit scattered in terms of narrative tone, but overall the touching, symbiotic friendship is a welcome sight to see. Rated PG-13.
PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 2-8, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15The Dish: Seared duck The Place: Avocado Grill, 125 Datura St., West Palm Beach; 561-623-0822 or www.avocadogrillwpb.com. The Price: $16 The Details: When I cook duck, everyone loves it. But duck is one of the easiest of dishes to destroy. Most people overcook the bird or overseason it. But done right, its sublime. Thats how I felt about this bit of duck breast by chef Julien Gremaud. It was seared until crisp on the outside, tender and meaty on the inside. The corn puree upon which it was served offered a sweet counterpoint to the earthy meat, as did the mushrooms and cauliflower, which had been simmered in a Madeira jus.

Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach (phone: 561-469-7660) and at 11452 Okeechobee Blvd., Royal Palm Beach (phone: 561-422-0600). 1 HULLABALOO517 Clematis St., downtown West Palm Beach; 561-833-1033 or www.sub-culture.org/ hullabaloo/ This gastropub offers Italian-inspired fare and specialty cocktails. You could go for a pizza baked in the wood-fired oven (the Speck Ham & Arugula sounded interesting) or do as we did, savoring a Supreme, with tomato sauce, chorizo and other savories. But it was the cocktails that won our hearts, with the Dio, a concoction of Maestro Dobel Tequila Diamante, Giffard creme de mure, sage, fresh grapefruit and lime, with the sour of the citrus contrasting nicely with the sweetness of the blackberry-infused crme de mure. 3 PISTACHE FRENCH BISTRO101 N. Clematis St., West Palm Beach; 833-5090 or pistachewpb.com. Owner Thierry Beaud has assembled a fine team of chefs and servers at this French restaurant. Its summer, but somehow, I cannot leave this place without the coq au vin, tender fowl braised in red wine and served with roasted carrots and potatoes. Feel like a splurge? The steak frites, with all that heavenly maitre d butter, will leave you satisfied. Scott SimmonsFLORIDA WEEKLY FILE PHOTO FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE janNORRISjan@jannorris.com Kai-Kai Farm owners Diane Cordeau and Carl Frost are kicking off their season of Feasts on the Farm with Chef Rick Mace, a longtime supporter of locally grown ingredients for his kitchen at Caf Boulud. Hes looking forward to bringing his twist on barbecue to guests directly in the fields at Kai-Kai, a few miles west of Stuart. He calls these dinners super important, connecting the diners to their foods at the source. Its certainly a very literal connection to the food. Its a good opportunity to have that moment in which everyone that is involved in the meal is in one place, he said. Chefs are always trying to connect the food source with the diner in a meaningful way, he said, but its not always possible. To showcase the food in the place where it was cultivated is a wonderful experience. Its a holistic feeling for the cook and kitchen staff as well. His menu is themed this year to barbecue. The exciting part is being able to work with Diane and get her produce, wrap it around the menu to showcase what she has, and maybe bring some unusual menu items to the guests. This year, after Hurricane Irma took its toll on her fields, Ms. Cordeau still has summer vegetables such as okra, greens and some peas available, he said. One of the things we get to work with is her black-eyed peas. Theyre easy to work with you can use so much of the plant. You can cook the tendrils, use the flowers in salads, and with the peas, fry or bake them make falafel whatever you want for something different. He uses tendrils in a salad at the restaurant with Vidalia onion and heirloom tomatoes. Cooking them is tricky as they can be woody, he said. You have to use the tips theyre tender. Diane picks the tendrils on the young peas for me. Hes most excited about the stuffed chickens for this dinner. Ill get the chicken, and debone it and stuff it with some vegetables. I have the idea to tie it like a pumpkin stuff it and turn it right side up, then tie it round and round like a pumpkin, then hang them on a string and finish them. Well get the skin nice and crispy and keep the centers moist. For the beef, hes using a chuck flap, and part of the chuck that leads to the rib eye for the smoked pit beef barbecue two ways. The spicy lamb ribs have a barbecue sauce popular in Lexington, Ky. Its a black sauce, made with Worcestershire sauce, molasses and vinegar. Its traditionally used for their mutton barbecue, but the grilled lamb ribs we did at Boulud Sud were so popular I thought Id bring them back here for the reception. Other menu items are distinctly Southern. While a hard play in South Florida, he thinks the foods are flavorful and underserved on menus. Salt and peper pork belly, Pimento cheese, Deviled eggs, Kai-Kai pickles, Broccoli salad and Seminole pumpkin pie round out the menu. New this year is the Kai-Kai Music Garden, where the monthly dinners will be held. Concerts are planned for the area. The buffet-style dinner with communal seating is Sunday, Nov. 5, 3:30-8 p.m. at Kai-Kai Farm, 8006 SW Kanner Highway, Indiantown. Tickets are $95 all inclusive.

Buy a Thanksgiving pie for $25, and get a pie from a local baker, knowing the contribution helps those shut-ins who cant get out for shopping or preparing meals. There are two pick-up locations this year on Nov. 21 in time for Thanksgiving dinner: the Palm Beach County Convention Center on Okeechobee Boulevard in downtown West Palm Beach, and at the former Loehmanns Plaza on PGA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens. Pie lovers can order pies individually or as a corporate buy for pick-up. Flavors again this year are apple, pumpkin and pecan. Those who cant eat pie or would like to donate a virtual pie can make a donation for the equivalent of a pie online. Maura Nelson, spokeswoman for Meals on Wheels, said, We are so grateful that the community loves this campaign. Each year we have been able to gather more support from sponsors as well as our generous pie bakers from incredible restaurants and private country clubs around the county.

No, not your dad, but rather, Pop art. From Nov. 7-30, Onessimo Fine Art will host an exhibition called POP SHOP, with works by Romero Britto, Mackenzie Thorpe, Peter Max and Kfir Moyal. Some of the artists even will be making an appearance. From 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 10, Brazilian painter and sculptor Romero Britto will be at Onessimo. He combines cubism, pop art and graffiti to create his colorful expressions of hope and happiness. The next week, Mackenzie Thorpe and Kfir Moyal will be in attendance. Visitors can meet the artists between 6 and 9 p.m. Nov. 17. Mr. Thorpes journey from dyslexic child to internationally renowned artist has inspired a worldwide following. His images of the duffle coat boy, big-headed children and salt of the Earth workers portray a message of equality, hope, and love of mankind. Mr. Moyal, a Miami-based artist is known for bringing the bling by embellishing his images of famous faces with Swarovski crystals and other precious stones. Peter Max will not attend the POP SHOP, but a collection of his work will be on display. Some buyers may qualify to visit Mr. Maxs New York studio. All of the artwork will be available for purchase. Each artist also will donate a work, which will be sold during the exhibit to benefit The Arc of Palm Beach County, which helps children and adults with developmental disabilities. Many of The Arcs clients create mosaics and other original pieces, which are sold to help them earn an income.

4 LUXE LIVING NOVEMBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY BY AMY WOODSawoods@ oridaweekly.comThe sliced soap slugged Tart Me Up looks good enough to eat. So does the Renegade Honey and the Apple-y Ever After. Cleverly crafted by a company in Waldo, the scented bars have artful appearances and witty names. These soaps are amazing, said Janelle Lang, owner of Shoppe 561 in West Palm Beach, presenting the colorful, confetti-topped cleanser in a shapely ceramic dish. That, to me, screams hostess gift. Hostess-gift heaven awaits those who enter the doors of the 2,200-squarefoot boutique on South Dixie Highway, where every item for sale is made in America. Nearly 100 artisans and their cruelty-free, environmentally safe, sustainably made wares fill the store with one-of-a kind merchandise like bath balms with a backstory. People are really into bath balms nowadays, but these are different, Ms. Lang said. Musee, a Madison, Miss., company, came into existence to help female former inmates in the rural town. The bath balms are the work of women out of prison in search of a second chance. According to a framed description next to the display, the bath balms remind us to enjoy the simple pleasures in life that serenade the heart and comfort the soul during a soothing soak in the tub. The ball-shaped balms bear the titles of folk songs and the words of hymns, and some of them have surprises inside. Flowers In Your Hair, a grapeseed-oil and lavender concoction, reveals a hair tie when dissolved in water. The inventory becomes increasingly inventive at every turn. The level of curated gifts in here this doesnt happen overnight, Ms. Lang said. I am personally vetting every single thing in the shop. I want to find the best of the best. Thats been my mantra. Another mantra of hers is hope. She donates 10 percent of all proceeds to Hope House Florida, a faith-based safe house for girls rescued from human trafficking. In the four years Shoppe 561 has been open, more than $16,000 has helped the cause. Eleven girls have been able to have an education because of what weve raised, Ms. Lang said. The girls taken from their families and put to use in the sex trade lack such skills as how to set the table, prepare a meal, do their laundry or apply for a job. The girls are coming in at all different points, Ms. Lang said. Some are coming in pregnant. The store shines a light on the modern-day style of slavery and invites customers to learn more while enjoying the experience of dcor that makes a difference. We want them to feel connected, Ms. Lang said. We want them to feel inspired. We want them to feel welcomed. Customers can buy brie bakers from a North Lauderdale art major with a passion for pottery. Or soy candles themed after literary greats Louise May Alcott, William Shakespeare, John Steinbeck and Oscar Wilde conceived by Paddywax in Nashville, Tenn. Or Florida Boy and Florida Girl throw pillows featuring old citrus labels that growers used to put on their wooden fruit crates. For note writers, there is the Aloha card with laser-cut pineapples in pink, paired with a Kraft envelope. And Shoppe 561 recently launched a line of barbecue sauces, b utters and salsas sour ced from Shawnee Springs Market in Cross Junction, Va. We just put it out last night, Ms. Lang said of the old-fashioned jars with fun flavors like Bourbon Barbecue Sauce, Sweet Potat o Butt er and Peach Habanero Salsa. Tracy Stern Tea & Co. on Palm Beach makes a line of organic goodness sold in elegant tins. The Royal Poinciana is a mix of hibiscus, lemongrass and rooibos. The Sunset is tropical green-tea blend. The Worth is berry black. These are just too cute to not take home, Ms. Lang said. For the holidays, she wants to build custom gift baskets that go beyond the typical cellophane and wicker. Why people want to shop here vs. Amazon or the mall is because our stuff doesnt look store-bought, Ms. Lang said. Youre not going to come in here and say, I saw that item down the street. The corporate-retail professional who left Gap after a 25-year career as director of third-party logistics for North America earned a masters degree in pastoral counseling following a trip to Rwanda. Abroad, she saw the horrors of human trafficking. I was called to do this, Ms. Lang said, noting her mantra for 2018 is provision. Its just having the confidence that God is going to provide all of what we need for business so we can have a good year. Bags of gummy bears line a rack next to the register. Three girls from Hope House Florida package them. They get paid $10 per hour. I never want them to look back and say, They took advantage of me, Ms. Lang said. The girls also decoupage wine bottles, glue shells on crosses and learn other types of crafts as they recover from the trauma. They want to feel like theyre helping, Ms. Lang said. They dont want to feel like victims. Shoppe 561, 1905 S. Dixie Highway B, West Palm Beach; 561-557-7278 or www.shoppe561.com.

6 LUXE LIVING NOVEMBER 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYTHE LUXE GETAWAYBoca Grandes grand dameThe Gasparilla Inn is ready for its 104th season BY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@ oridaweekly.comWith a storied history including notable visitors like Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Katharine Hepburn and the George H.W. Bush family, Gasparilla Inn & Club opened its door for its 104th season this fall. We are thrilled to welcome guests back for another memorable season, said Jon Reecher, general manager of The Gasparilla Inn & Club in Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island. Our new guests discover the gracious hospitality and gentility of our resort whether they seek an unforgettable golfing experience, or a relaxing getaway at our beautiful Beach Club. A member of Historic Hotels of America and listed on The National Register of Historic Places, the grand resort offers 142 accommodations in the heart of Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island, between Sarasota and Fort Myers on the Gulf of Mexico. Anytime is a good time to go, but the holidays Thanksgiving and Christmas offer special events to make a vacation even more appealing. A special turkey dinner on Nov. 23 is always a hit; and in December, the inn will host its annual Twelve Days of Christmas package. Besides typical resort activities, guests will be treated to Old World hospitality and festive merriment as they prepare for the arrival of Santa. Festive activities include gingerbread house decorating, tree-trimming for kids, Christmas caroling and even Christmas Eve in The Living Room of the inn, complete with milk and cookies. Damage from Hurricane Irma was minimal, Mr. Reecher said. We had some trees down, lost some shingles on cottage roofs, some siding here and there, but in general, we were really lucky. The island has 2,400 households, 600 year-round residents, and during peak season the population swells to 5,000. Part of the Boca Grandes charm is that there are no traffic lights and no chain restaurants. Dont look for a McDonalds here! And at the inn itself, a very civilized resort, expect a dress code during the social season, Dec. 21 through March 31. No jeans or shorts in the dining room after 6 p.m. and men are required to wear a jacket. Fishing is hugely popular. Anglers find themselves reeling in redfish and trout, and in Charlotte Harbor, tarpon. In fact, Charlotte Harbor and Boca Grande Pass are often referred to as the Tarpon Capital of the World). Bridge is king at the resort. There are large groups that will get together and bring in an expert and play for three or four days straight, Mr. Reecher said. The Pete Dye 18-hole championship course on pretty Charlotte Harbor keeps golfers happy and challenged, and a daytrip to the two-story, circa-1890 lighthouse and museum that explores the islands fishing and railroad heritage, is always a good bet. But the island has another lighthouse called Gasparilla Island Range Tower Light, too. Both are open to the public. Guests never have to travel far for good food. The inn has four restaurants, including the popular Pink Elephant downtown, and a lounge. New in the past few years is The Inn Bakery (downtown). If you go, be sure to order a doughnut (or a dozen). We recommend one topped with a citrus glaze. Mr. Reecher agrees: Its the best doughnut youll find in Florida. The Gasparilla Inn & Club, 500 Palm Ave., Boca Grande, 800-996-1913 or 941-9642201, www.gasparillainn.com. Resort offers 142 accommodations in a pristine environment in the heart of Boca Grande, located on Gasparilla Island. Special seasonal offers: Thanksgiving package, good Nov. 21-26, has rates starting at $285 a night and includes deluxe room and a host of special activities for guests of all ages: sand sculpting, beach games, teddy bear tea parties, a family-fun football game, Inn Bingo, The Inns optional famous Thanksgiving dinner and more. Optional meal plans are available upon request. 12 Days of Christmas package, good Dec. 20-Jan. 1, includes deluxe room and a host of special holiday activities that include: Christmas caroling, gingerbread house decorating, beach games, sand sculpting, Inn Bingo, a countdown to the New Year in BZs and more. Optional meal plans are available upon request. The Gasparilla Inn & Club offers 142 accommodations in the Heart of Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island. Kayaking is one of the many outdoor activities available at The Gasparilla Inn & Club. The Pete Dye 18-hold golf course offers fairways with a view of Charlotte Harbor. Try a citrus-glazed doughnut at The Inn Bakery. Guests can relax at a pool or join in bridge.
FLORIDA WEEKLY LUXE LIVING 7Designer Allison Paladino has a lust for travel BY AMY WOODSawoods@ oridaweekly.comAllison Paladino Interior Design & Collections has received a lot of press since it opened 20 years ago. Florida Design. Grandeur. House Beautiful. It also has earned ink in the Interior Design Review Book, by Andrew Martin, which annually features the worlds top 100 in the profession, making it an industry bible. And Luxe Interiors & Design Magazine included the firm on its Gold List three times. After working so hard for so many years, its nice that Im finally getting some recognition, principal Allison Paladino said. Known for her love of French Art Deco and inspiration from American architect George Nakashima, her designs comprise classical lines and contrasting materials such as shagreen stingray skin, polished bronze nickel and makore wood. She formulated a furniture collection with EJ Victor in Morganton, N.C., and launched a lighting line with Fine Art Lamps in Miami Lakes. She prides her furniture collection on different detailing buttons and pleats on upholstery and case goods that include the Twist Table. As for her lighting line, it represents organic beauty through the use of dichroic rough-cut glass that undergoes a complex processing technique. My lighting line is expensive, but there is a reason why, Ms. Paladino said. All of it is LED and dimmable. A stunning chandelier hangs above a chunky, tree-trunk-style conference table in her North Palm Beach office, and both hail from her imagination. The best compliment that I ever get about my interiors is that theyre clean, Ms. Paladino said Born and raised in West Palm Beach, she attended Cardinal Newman High School and Mount Vernon College, then followed in her mothers footsteps. Its been around all my life, Ms. Paladino said of interior design. Its all I know. I tried to fight it and go into PR and marketing. Im so glad I didnt. I really do have a passion for it. She travels religiously and sails to shrug off stress, sourcing ideas from both hobbies. Design is everywhere, Ms. Paladino said, noting she has 72,000 pictures in her archives. I think its just up to someone to be cognizant of whats around. Here are her thoughts on design. Tell us a little bit about your philosophy of design. Spaces should be warm and inviting with very little clutter. Keep design classic with proper scale, well-balanced color and focal points. How has that evolved over the past 30 years? It really has stayed the same. Is there any one constant, or signature look, in an Allison Paladino design? Other than warm and inviting with little clutter, I sincerely hope that my work does not present a signature look but rather different because the end product is my clients vision. Is there a look that says South Florida or Palm Beach? I think anything with bright colors automatically is perceived as Palm Beach but does not reflect my designs. What is your favorite design trend right now? I see a real trend of clients wanting more transitional to contemporary interiors vs. traditional. We still get a little bit of traditional work, but its been a lot of fun to do more contemporary stuff. How do you balance your career with your passion for travel? I bought the best invention whatsoever the iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil. I can draw from wherever I am. What is your favorite place for relaxation? Sailing on open waters with the love of my life. Who are you following/watching, design-wise? My mentor/old boss Thomas Pheasant, whom Ive known for 30 years, just introduced a new collection with Baker [Furniture.] I saw his collection at the recent International Furniture Show, and it was fantastic. His best work yet. THE LUXE Q & A PALADINO >> Allison Paladino, 11891 U.S. 1, No. 202, North Palm Beach; 561-814-2836 or www. apinteriors.com.
