It was an outstanding year from an operational standpoint and an exciting year, because with the 25th anniversary, we got to do some unique things around the gala, he said. Held last February, the gala included pops orchestra singer, pianist and conductor Michael Feinstein, who has performed at the Kravis every year since it opened. The all-star line-up also featured Burt Reynolds, Alan Cumming, Denyce Graves, Storm Large, Darren Criss and Neil Sedaka, to name a few. The gala was the frosting on the cake for the not-for-profit center, which triumphed in other important ways, as well.VERY YEAR ON THANKSGIVING, youll find Aida Schomburg poring over the newspaper, scoping out her next target.

The song arrived in a Broadway musical called West Side Story, first staged in the fall of 1957, before hitting the silver screen four years later. A couple of gangs on New Yorks west side the Sharks and the Jets one Puerto Rican and one Anglo, hate each other and face off violently. But their members are ultimately redeemed (though not saved) by the tender love of a Puerto Rican girl, Maria, and an Anglo boy, Tony, who ignore the old loyalties and biases. Against the odds, the two decide to celebrate their love in the face of powerful cultural imperatives against them. If the names seem antiquated and the story itself ancient (Shakespeare completed a similar story, Romeo and Juliet, in 1595, after all), its reflection of love remains as contemporary as ever. Equally as timeless is the prescription for young males, couched in the lyrics of a song called, Cool. Here, one of the Jets tries to talk his homeboys into restraint rather than an aggressive response to an attack on their gang. Boy, boy, crazy boy, Get cool, boy! Got a rocket in your pocket, Keep coolly cool, boy! Dont get hot, Cause man, you got Some high times ahead Boy, boy, crazy boy! Stay loose, boy! Breeze it, buzz it, easy does it, Turn off the juice, boy! Go man, go, But not like a yo-yo schoolboy Just play it cool, boy, Real cool! Such advice is an antidote to the impetuous whimsy of anger, the desire to wound a perceived enemy without further consideration. The same civilizing wisdom restrain your urges and use them to make your world better, not worse holds when it comes to how boys and men treat women, too. Or more specifically, how boys and men use their sexual urges to treat anybody. The prescription in Cool is straightforward: Learn to control yourself. And the idea is simple enough to define: If you want a better life, control your instinctive emotional and physical actions. But it has to be taught and practiced. And whose job is that? Its our job. So when people like Harvey Weinstein, Roy Moore, Kevin Spacey, Louis C.K., Brett Ratner, Terry Richardson, Ben Affleck, Michael Oreskes, Dustin Hoffman, Oliver Stone, Dr. Larry Nassar and others become exposed as kings with no clothes when theyre seen in the naked light of their misbehaviors, their use of power to sexually harass and abuse women and children because they have no discipline or control one thing becomes abundantly clear to me: Somebody didnt do his or her job, once upon a time. So, did these turkeys have unloving, unable or undutiful parents? Probably. Obviously they were never taught how to behave and chose not to learn later. Either that, or they were taught how to misbehave and chose to continue misbehaving, later. But parents arent the only ones who can teach proper civil behavior. So the chance for boys, in particular, to learn is not limited entirely to the home. Teachers, coaches, ministers, friends and the parents of friends can help do the job, too, if they choose. Teaching takes work, however it takes time, commitment and relative sobriety. But it has to be done or we get herds of male users and abusers. In my view, it all comes down to this: If you have children, your job is to teach them that each person they encounter must be accorded respect and general acceptance, at first glance regardless of race, sex, creed, style or appearance. It doesnt matter how you voted or where your political loyalties lie. It doesnt matter how rich or poor you are, how mad you are at your spouse or partner, how drunk, violent or inept your own parents once were. None of that matters. What matters, instead, is this: You teach your children how to behave, now. Not tomorrow or the next day. In addition to the simple creed ab ove, parents and teachers must also require children never to take advantage of any who might be weaker, less savvy or less stable whether male or female. Its an American thing, not a liberal or a conservative thing. This is what we do, unless we arent doing what we should be doing. None of the current revelations, by the way, has to do with restraining the urge or hobbling the courage to love. Willing lovers may have to push past social boundaries or restrictions imposed by others by religion, by race, by time or age, by sex, by occupation, by geography. Such was the case for Romeo and Juliet, for Tony and Maria in West Side Story, and for many real-world couples. Love is not always easy to define, nor does it fit into neat categories. But what the Roy Moores and Harvey Weinsteins undertake has nothing to do with love. Instead of loving, they bully and abuse. Nobody told them: Go man go, but not like a yo-yo school boy. Just play it cool, boy real cool. Or, they chose to ignore it. If you have children like I do, or you work with children now and you dont talk about this, youre ignoring it, too. In which case, change your ways, starting now. Leslie Lillys column will return. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

OPINIONThe Male Chauvinist PigdomIve written facetiously before about a fictional nation, the Male Chauvinist Pigdom. Unfortunately, its very real and not funny, unless you get your jollies from the stories that are emerging of the male pigs not all of us, mind you, but far too many who brutalize the females of our species. Day after day, plausible horror stories of sexual assault finally spew after festering for years. The lineup of alleged pervs reaches the highest levels of celebrity, presidents of the United States, powerful movie producers and so many performers and prominent journalists its an all-star list of rapists, gross exhibitionists and those who abuse their power over the careers of their victims. Oh, I almost forgot child molesters, perhaps the worst swine of all. Roy Moore, the Republican Partys official candidate to be the next United States senator from Alabama, stands accused in a well-documented Washington Post article of imposing himself sexually as described by Leigh Corfman, a 14-yearold girl back in 1979. Moore was in his 30s. Additionally, Post reporters interviewed other teenagers from that time, who said he also put romantic moves on them, all while he was serving as an assistant district attorney in Gadsden, Ala. One would think such credible revelations would be devastating to a candidate for Senate, even nearly 40 years later, particularly when the now 70-year-old Moore has evolved into a Christian zealot. Twice hes gotten thrown out of office for his fanaticism, but he keeps rising again. Part of that can be attributed to the fact that 86 percent of the states population, according to a Pew survey, identifies itself as Christian, 49 percent as evangelical. For whatever reason Moore, with his stands against Muslims, gays, on and on ad nauseam, has created a climate where not only can he and his supporters defend him by claiming that this is a liberal hatchet job, never mind the evidence, but then offer the most bizarre justifications in case the allegations are true. As state auditor Jim Ziegler told the Washington Examiner: Take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus. That is not made up. What has happened is that the Moore case has exposed a large number of weasels who also are in abundance. They are the ones obviously trying to weasel out of their dilemma, where an accused child molester could be joining their Senate caucus. Some in the GOP have been saying that Moore should abandon his Senate quest IF the charges can be proven. Obviously, the decades-old charges cant be proven. As Mitt Romney, who joined John McCain in the partys nonweasel herd, put it on Twitter: Innocent until proven guilty is for criminal convictions, not elections. I believe Leigh Corfman. Her account is too serious to ignore. Moore is unfit for office and should step aside. What we are finally realizing is that the way of life in our Male Chauvinist Pigdom includes a lot of sexual oppression. If were not among the list of perpetrators, which grows by the moment, all too many of us are enablers. The MCP is not really a part of the civilized world. If there is a civilized world. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN.There is no Without TrumpEd Gillespie went from potential vindicator of Trumpism to cuckservative in the space of a couple of hours. The Virginia Republican, campaigning for governor in a treacherous political environment defined by an unpopular president of his own party, ran the only race he reasonably could. He distanced himself from Donald Trump personally, hoping to lessen his losses in heavily Democratic Northern Virginia, while hitting some Trumpian notes on crime and immigration to appeal to the presidents base. Gillespie looked to be gaining fast on Democrat Ralph Northam. Former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, the selfdeclared keeper of the Trumpist flame, believed Gillespie had cracked the code by fashioning a Trumpism without Trump. At least that was the party line until Gillespie lost on Nov. 7. Then he became an establishment tool who had betrayed Trumpism and the president. The hypocrisy of the Bannon faction aside, the Virginia race revealed a problem with the Trumpism-withoutTrump construct namely, that its not really possible. First, its not going to be convincing to Trump-haters. Ed Gillespie is not the slightest bit Trumpy. He is earnest, wonky and friendly. When he distanced himself from Trump, it was credible because he hadnt been close to Trump to begin with. He had never met him, and all of Trumps support on Twitter was unsolicited. None of this made the slightest difference to voters in Northern Virginia, where Northam racked up margins bigger than Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. These people werent showing up to send a message to Gillespie, the otherwise unthreatening candidate who happened to run a barrage of negative ads against Northam (not the first time this has happened in electoral politics). They were showing up to send a message to Trump, whom they believe is a clear and present danger to all that they hold dear. So as a sheer political matter, there can be no such thing as Trumpism without Trump, or Anti-Trumpism without Trump, or Anything Else without Trump. It is difficult enough for a candidate to run away from a conventional president of his own party; it is going be even harder with a president who dominates the media to an extent no other president has, and courts nay, enjoys radioactive controversies. In theory, Trumpism without Trump is the right direction for the GOP. It should learn from his populist, nationalistic appeal while avoiding its (and his) excesses. In practice, Trump himself is going to loom all the larger in the party. He is the main issue in American politics, and he may be the only Republican fit to weather the storm he has a proven ability to turn out his voters, he doesnt have to win elections in nonpresidential years, and his persona works for him, if not for anyone else. If the worst comes and Republicans lose both houses of Congress next year, Trumps importance will be further magnified as the only Republican standing between Democrats and unified control of the federal government. In that circumstance, Republican voters would probably be much more willing to embrace Trump without Trumpism, rather than the opposite.

There is no better way to help protect yourself or your family from contracting the flu virus than rolling up your sleeve and getting an annual influenza vaccine. And, if you hadnt done so already, there is no better time to get a shot than National Influenza Vaccination Week, Dec. 3-9. Most people who contract the flu will experience symptoms like those you get with a bad cold: sore throat, runny nose or cough. Except, unlike a cold, the flu tends to come on suddenly. You might also get a fever, chills, a headache, and feel a level of fatigue. Patients who have contracted the flu often describe feeling as if a truck just hit me. There are some people, however, who will develop complications from the flu that can range from fairly mild to life-threatening. In fact, it is estimated that in the United States alone, 36,000 people will die from the flu this year and as many as 200,000 will be hospitalized as result of the flu. While anyone can get the flu, young children, adults over the age of 65, pregnant women and individuals with certain chronic health conditions are most at risk for developing serious flu complications. These are the people who should be calling for their flu shots as soon as theyre available. As a primary care provider, I am often asked by my patients, should we get a flu shot? And my response is almost always the same: YES! The fact is, everyone should get a flu vaccine except those who have experienced an allergic reaction to the shot in the past or those individuals with an egg allergy, as most types of flu vaccines contain a small amount of egg protein. Despite my pronouncement that most people should get the flu shot, many of my patients are still hesitant. Part of their uncertainty revolves around longstanding myths about the flu and the vaccine. For example, many people believe that the flu vaccine will make them sick or they tell me that they have previously contracted the flu right after receiving the shot. The reality is that todays flu vaccine is made from an inactivated virus, which means the shot cannot transmit the infection. If you get sick after you get the shot, you were likely to get sick anyway. The truth is that the shot takes a few weeks to protect you from the flu, so it is possible for you to come down with the flu soon after getting vaccinated. Many of my patients also believe they do not need to get a shot because they are healthy and arent at an increased risk to contract the flu. While this might be true, anyone can still get the flu and receiving the vaccine not only helps protect you, it helps safeguard those around youespecially those who are the most vulnerable. As I explain to my patients, all it takes for there to be an outbreak in our community is for one person to spread the virus to five or 10 people, who then spread it to another five or 10 people, and so on. In addition, the current flu vaccine can also help protect you from more aggressive and serious flu strains, such as H1N1 or swine flu. Each year, the flu vaccine prevents approximately five million people from getting the flu and 2.5 million from needing to seek medical treatment for the virus. And while the vaccine is not 100 percent effective the flu is a virus and viruses mutate getting vaccinated will dramatically decrease your chances of contracting the flu and its resulting complications. Also, should you come down with the flu even after getting the shot, the symptoms you experience are likely to be much milder than if you had not been vaccinated. If you come down with the flu, you should remain at home, rest and take overthe-counter pain relievers as needed to alleviate mild symptoms. You should seek medical attention if you develop a fever of more than 102 degrees, experience severe vomiting, diarrhea or muscle pain, or have difficulty breathing. As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. When talking about the flu, the most effective prevention is to get vaccinated.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 23-29, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY We had amazing success during the past year from the standpoint of continued support from the community, Mr. Bracci said. It was a fantastic year from our ability to raise funds to continue to support the center and arts education in the community. It was a really good year. This month marks the 25th anniversary of the very first performance at the center. Through it all, there has been one constant, CEO Judith Mitchell, who started her Kravis career as development director in 1989. Mr. Bracci credits her with doing an amazing job. I really dont think we could have asked for a smoother year as it relates to the high profile 25th anniversary, he said. Judy has built a place to work that people want to work and want to stay, he said. I cant emphasize enough how really proud I am of the people that run the Kravis Center, staff and volunteers. They work so hard during the season and are absolutely committed to the mission of arts, culture and arts education in Palm Beach County. The center continues to draw large audiences. This year, Kravis Center attendance ranked No. 2 in the state behind only the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, and No. 15 in the nation, according to Pollstar, a trade publication for the concert tour industry. Building a major performing arts center in the county seemed like an uphill challenge over a quarter-century ago, Mr. Bracci said. Today, its a thriving cultural center and a premier entertainment venue with a $27 million operating budget. But running the Kravis comes with its challenges. Much of the current focus is on strategic planning. We want to improve the patron experience at the Kravis Center, because when we built it and designed it 25 years ago, we knew traffic flow at that time, we knew how other performing arts centers functioned at that time, but the Kravis Center has become so much more since then. We have three venues. A lot of people dont realize it basically runs 24/7 with ins and outs of shows. The Cohen Pavilion is very active, the Rinker theater and of course, Dreyfoos Hall. People are coming and going. Theres a constant movement of people there. When the campus was first designed, it wasnt laid out for that amount of activity. So, what weve been really working on is how to design and improve the experience for the patron coming and going, parking, getting to the theater, getting out of the theater, getting out of the parking lot, Mr. Bracci said. We spent a huge amount of time taking the suggestions of the strategic planning committee and really kind of doing a re-do on our campus. More details on the re-do will roll out in coming months, he said. Theres a lot of work related to it because there will be construction, there will be movement of various aspects, there will be working with the city to make sure were interacting appropriately with what they are trying to accomplish. Security is another consideration. Because of the world we live in, security is a concern, he said. We spend a lot of time working with other performing arts centers and other public spaces around the country to understand what they do, what they dont do. Everybody does it very differently but we want to make sure were doing the best we can do. There have been major enhancements to our security. We didnt put in metal detectors, but we did do bag searches for the first time and we put in some very clear policies around weapons. There are a lot more cameras on the campus, a lot more security personnel, a lot more West Palm Beach police officers on the scene. We havent had any issues. Its just the world we live in and we want to be as frontthinking as we possibly can be without ruining the experience. When Mr. Bracci, who had been on the board for 10 years, became chairman in April 2016, Ms. Mitchell expressed the centers appreciation. He has long been involved in the center and the Palm Beach County community, she said. Michaels professional experience and passion for the arts and our community will help the center to continue to evolve and to meet the needs of all of our patrons. Mr. Bracci has been in the financial services business for nearly 30 years and has been with Northern Trust for more than 20 years. He is president of the Palm Beach/Treasure Coast region, responsible for all aspects of the banks wealth management business, including investment management, trust and fiduciary management, financial planning and private banking. He leads a team of more than 120 in six offices from Boca Raton to Vero Beach. He has been very active in the community serving in volunteer leadership roles at the Town of Palm Beach United Way, the Nicklaus Childrens Healthcare Foundation, the Benjamin School in North Palm Beach, to name a few. Mr. Bracci also is passionate about the arts, attending many performances at the Kravis since it opened in 1992. During the last year, Ive really enjoyed a lot of the comedians that come in, he said. My wife (Colleen) and I enjoy the Broadway Series so we try to get to as many of the Broadway shows as we can. I always like the philharmonics and then I like a lot of the smaller performances in the Rinker. For instance, I love to see Capitol Steps every year over at the Rinker and I love some of the smaller, one-woman, one-man performances that come through that are very creative and innovative. The Braccis teenage sons, Griffin and Hunter, have enjoyed shows at the Kravis, too, he said. They like more contemporary music. A Tequesta resident, Mr. Bracci is only the Kravis Centers fourth board chairman, following Jane Mitchell, of Palm Beach Gardens. The first chairman was Alexander Dreyfoos, a driving force in the 1970s to get a grand cultural center built. The second was William Meyer. Early board leadership hailed from Palm Beach and West Palm Beach; both Jane Mitchell and Mr. Bracci call northern Palm Beach County home, showing growth of support for the Kravis. The folks in Palm Beach have been critical to the success of the Kravis Center, the ability to raise money, but also weve had amazing support across the community, Mr. Bracci, 51, said. The vast majority of my business career has been either on the island or in West Palm. We are always looking for those committed people to be on the board no matter where they are in the community, Mr. Bracci said. We want a full representation of Palm Beach County. Born in Springfield. Mass., Mr. Bracci moved to North Palm Beach County in 1976 as part of a Pratt & Whitney invasion. He grew up in Tequesta, went to Jupiter High School. After earning a B.A. in economics from Tulane University, he came home to Florida, giving his children a chance to grow up around both sets of grandparents. I went into commercial banking right out of school and I didnt think necessarily that was where I was going, but it would have been in finance in some way for sure, he said. I always knew I would be going in the direction of a business career. He was working for one of the banks in downtown West Palm Beach that lent the money to build the Kravis Center. Alex Dreyfoos had come out to the banks in West Palm Beach and said, Were ready to get going, but we need some initial funding for a starter fund. As pledges came rolling in, the money was paid back. I was around that scene in the initial planning and underwriting and people trying to get comfortable with this big project, Mr. Bracci said. For Palm Beach County, for the dollars that were going to be made, this was breaking new ground. It really was breaking all kinds of barriers. It was a big, bold initiative. Alex (Dreyfoos) and his team really deserve so much credit because they were looking into the future of the what ifs, but knowing it was a big jump for this area. Back then, the area around the Kravis Center was bleak. It was a horrible part of town he said. As a matter of fact, if you go back to when the houses were torn down, that part of town (sort of west of Quadrille, south of Evernia to Okeechobee, around the church or what is now the Harriet Himmel Theater) was one of the very toughest parts of town. Today, downtown is alive not only with the Kravis Center, but with CityPlace, the Convention Center and several tall office and residential towers. We were part of it and we were on the front end of it, he said. And the board at the time, the people that were digging in, were definitely the visionaries and trend setters. The Kravis Center, the idea, the money that was raised, was a component to what was coming. I think we helped kick it into gear, he said. The Kravis Center added an energy level that was not there. Over the years, the Kravis Center has helped students fuel their imaginations through comprehensive arts education programs. Last year, nearly 60,000 children from Palm Beach, Broward, Martin, St. Lucie and Okeechobee counties attended numerous performances through the Kravis S*T*A*R* (Students and Teachers Arts Resource) Series. More than 3,000 adults attended ArtSmart continuing education classes and lectures. And so far, the center says it has opened the door to the performing arts for more than 2 million school children.

The self-described accident-prone kid broke many a finger and many a toe, plus wrists and ankles and other bones. I was stitched, st apled and butterflied on countless occasions, Mr. Mastroianni said. I would say 50 to 60 times I was taken to the emergency room when I was little. The Jupiter resident is all grown up now and has three children of his own 4-year-old Giabella, 3-year-old Giuliani and 3-month-old Gemma with his wife, Jessica. It came as no surprise when the family was revealed Nov. 16 as the lead donor of a new pediatric emergency unit that will rise on the campus of Jupiter Medical Center. Weve been wanting to do something for awhile, said the 32-year-old president of Allied Capital & Development of South Florida and member of the family that founded Harbourside Place. As soon as this took shape, I knew it was the perfect place for me to give. Mr. Mastroiannis $3 million donation on behalf of the Mastroianni Family Foundation will name the Mastroianni Family Pediatric Emergency Department, due to open in late 2018. The 6,300-square-foot facility will be built next to but separate from the existing emergency room, offering a boyand girl-friendly environment with fish tanks, murals and toys to distract young patients and ease their stress. Its a thing that no parent wants to do take their child to the emergency room, he said. Its just typically unpleasant. The Mastroianni Family Pediatric Emergency Department aims to change that. The vision of what they are doing is what Id want to see, Mr. Mastroianni said of the plans devised by Jupiter Medical Center and its pediatric partner, Nicklaus Childrens Hospital. We didnt even have a conversation about it, Ms. Mastroianni said of the monetary gift. It was what we both knew we wanted to do. The unit will include eight pediatric treatment rooms, a dedicated family waiting area and indoor play spaces with games, puzzles and more. The goal is an ER that looks less sterile and less scary. Along with the anxiety-alleviating amenities, a pediatrician will be onsite 24/7, as will a team of pediatrictrained doctors and nurses. Pediatric consults will be available as will inpatient care through the De George Pediatric Inpatient Unit. Parents love to go to something thats just for their children, said Barbara Nicklaus, who founded the Nicklaus Childrens Health Care Foundation with her husband, Jack Nicklaus. To think that well have a standalone pediatric emergency department is a dream come true. The Nicklauses attended the groundbreaking ceremony that took place in an air-conditioned, carpeted and chandelier-laden tent constructed in the parking lot of the hospital especially for the event. Symbolic shovel photos were taken of them and the Mastroiannis, including brother Anthony Mastroianni and wife Sara and sister Audrey Mastroianni. When [our kids] were growing up, we had to either go to Orlando or Miami when we had a sick child, Mr. Nicklaus said. We feel very blessed to be able to use our name and influence to help kids. Last year, The Honda Classic Cares made a $1 million donation to the Nicklaus Childrens Health Care Foundation, kicking off a $5 million campaign for the pediatric emergency unit. The Mastroianni Family Foundations generosity not only is welcomed but also well-timed, said Liv Vesely, president of the Jupiter Medical Center Foundation. As a nonprofit hospital, we rely heavily on support from the community, which allows us to deliver topquality health care, Ms. Vesely said. With the creation of the Mastroianni Family Pediatric Emergency Department, parents wont have to travel to other parts of South Florida to get pediatric emergency care for their kids. ANDY SPILOS/FLORIDA WEEKLYAudrey Mastroianni, Sara Mastroianni, Anthony Mastroianni, Gemma Mastroianni, Jessica Mastroianni, Nicholas Mastroianni III, Giabella Mastroianni and Guiliana Mastroianni attend a groundbreaking ceremony for the new pediatric emergency unit that will rise on the campus of Jupiter Medical Center.
Ms. Schomburg says of her preferred Black Friday destination. I never go to Best Buy or Toys R Us. The lines are ridiculous. But before the shopping, there is the actual Thursday holiday, Nov. 23 this year. Some might say that each year the third Thursday of November is swallowed up more and more by designated shopping/ celebrating days. Take Wednesday, for example. For most, its the last work day of the holiday week. In the last decade, it has come to be known as Blackout Wednesday or Drinksgiving, one of the biggest bar nights of the year. With a long weekend ahead and many college kids back home for the actual Thursday holiday, many take the comfort of home as an enabler to go drinking with friends they havent seen in a while. Mothers Against Drunk Driving says Thanksgiving Eve approaches New Years Eve and the Fourth of July in the number of drunk driving incidents. Police increase details around local watering holes, bars staff up like its the weekend and restaurants get ready to serve perhaps more food than will be consumed on that Thursday. Rustys Raw Bar and Grill Estero and Fort Myers are hot spots for college students returning home to the area for the holiday. Where we see a difference in activity are the people who went to college here maybe five or six years ago and come back to visit family, said Estero general manager Garrett Coe. That Wednesday and even Thanksgiving night, theres people coming back to visit their old local watering hole from college. I see people that havent been back in years that come by and see that not much has changed. Its not as much about being wild and crazy as being a big family reunion for a lot of people. Following Wednesday night, Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday come Small Business Saturday, no-name (yet) Sunday, Cyber Monday and Giving Tuesday. Black Friday is traditionally the busiest shopping day of the year and kicks off the critical holiday season. About 30 percent of annual retail sales occur between Black Friday and Christmas, according to the National Retail Federation. For some retailers, such as jewelers, its even higher. Black Friday continues to seep into more of a Murky Thursday as the norm has become many bigger chains and malls opening their doors just after dinnertime on Thanksgiving. Ms. Schomburg is usually on the road by 6 p.m. Thanksgiving Day, on her way to conquer her shopping route. She usually gets the map out of the newspaper and marks it up with the best places to hit. I love Black Friday shopping. People are usually very nice and laughing a lot. Sometimes I like to just sit there and watch people go crazy over something thats not really a great sale, she says. Naples residents Josh Leppo and Eddie Rogers are frequent visitors to Miromar Outlets for Black Friday. One year they left the mall to hit Best Buy in Coconut Point for the television sales. Mr. Leppo said hed never do it again. We waited from midnight until about 5 a.m. when the doors opened. I got the TV I wanted, but I also got a lot more stuff than I needed, he said. The wait was just unbearable. JCPenney is one-upping the field this year, with national business hours starting at 3 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. Costco is one of a number of retailers that dont open on Thanksgiving. According to a Costco spokesperson, the retailer will continue to uphold that tradition in the name of allowing employees a chance to relax and enjoy time with their families. Theres an unofficial observance every Black Friday called National Day of Listening. The day was spearheaded in 2008 by a nonprofit called StoryCorps, an organization that asks everyone to take a few minutes to thank a teacher or two, or record interviews in veterans hospitals, senior centers, homeless shelters and other community centers. StoryCorps founder Dave Isay hopes to eventually compile a digital archive of the wisdom of humanity through this initiative. The National Retail Federation expects over 100 million Black Friday shoppers this year, and over 150 million overall in stores and online on Thanksgiving weekend, with the average shopper spending $289.19. For overall holiday spending in November and December 2017, NRF expects America to spend more than $675 billion. Thats equivalent to the nominal GDP of Switzerland or the bottom 86 countries on the list. With employment and incomes increasing, consumers are more confident this year and that is reflected in their buying plans for the holidays, NRF president and CEO Matthew Shay said in a press release. Retailers have been stocking up in expectation of this, and all signs are that this will be a busy holiday season. Retailers are preparing for a rush of consumers leading into Thanksgiving and all through December, and are offering a wide array of merchandise and promotions so shoppers can find great gifts and great deals at the same time. Note: it appears the best deals are in fact not offered on Black Friday. Many media outlets report that the best savings are actually the week leading up to Thanksgiving, courtesy of the meteoric rise of online shopping and Amazon. Last year, the number of online shoppers on Black Friday eclipsed the number of inperson shoppers for the first time, according to NRF. Small Business Saturday follows, a trademarked slogan by American Express to spearhead a national push for spending money at your local businesses.

tion was passed in the U.S. Senate to make SBS official in 2011. According to an Amex survey, last years holiday netted over $15.4 billion in small business purchases. The survey was conducted by Amex and the National Federation of Independent Business. The day is continuing to get more traction in South Florida, according to some local small business owners. Millennial Brewing Company in downtown Fort Myers hosted a Small Business Saturday Market last year and will host one again on Nov. 25. The companys founder and CEO Kyle Cebull said his brewery wasnt even fully open yet at the time, but thought it a huge success based on the turnout. This year, were in a position to open this event up to even more vendors and customers, Mr. Cebull said. Were a small business and we love to do anything we can to support everyone in our community that took the leap and started their own company. Sunday has not yet been claimed by any retail outfit, but the afterglow of Black Friday continues through the weekend until Cyber Monday, which Adobe predicts this year will be the largest day of online shopping in history at over $6 billion in sales. Giving Tuesday, the newest of the holidays, is a movement established with the goal of inciting an international movement at the beginning of the holiday season responding to the increased commercialization of the post-Thanksgiving season. #GivingTuesday was founded in 2012 by New Yorks 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation. The movement continues to grow, with donations pouring in from 98 countries to raise more than $177 million on Giving Tuesday 2015. A sizable number, but still less than 10 percent of what was spent the day before on Cyber Monday that year. The day that got us here, Thanksgiving, is a holiday with roots in the U.S., Canada and other countries with various iterations and dates. The day has religious and secular meaning for many. Theres also that annual Macys parade. Turkey. Stuffing. More turkey (and ham). It can be traced back to as early as 1621, known as a harvest festival for the Pilgrims who traveled to the New World.

A14 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE WEEK OF NOVEMBER 23-29, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYfuture growth. Problem is, the same forces that make growth imperative also make it incredibly daunting. When the rules you used to live by become obsolete overnight, it doesnt exactly foster calmness and confidence, notes Amanda Setili. Leaders have to wrestle with some tough strategic dilemmas:Should we disrupt our own business before someone else does, or should we focus on protecting it? Should we develop new capabilities internally or partner with someone else? Do we craft a careful plan or simply plunge right in? And yet, we cannot afford to let fear, uncertainty and doubt paralyze us. To be able to respond quickly and intelligently to the fast pace of change, all levels and functions in your businesses must be creative, responsive and agile, says Ms. Setili, the author of Fearless Growth: The New Rules to Stay Competitive, Foster Innovation, and Dominate Your Markets. Youre going to feel fear, sure, she adds. And you must act in spite of it. In other words, you must practice fearless growth. In her work as a strategy consultant, Ms. Setili says she has found there are seven rules fearlessly growing companies live by: Rule No. 1: Embrace uncertainty People are wired to fear uncertainty, but its important to capitalize on uncertainties in your market, rather than letting them slow you down. Companies that grow fearlessly know that highly predictable markets often create situations in which all competitors look alike and margins are thin; thus, market uncertainties can create new opportunities for them to differentiate themselves. These companies are willing to take prudent risks and know how to manage risk. In short, they operate confidently in uncertainty. Having the right risk mentality and moving quickly gives you an advantage over competitors that are slower to respond, Ms. Setili says. Take a cue from the film industry and try placing multiple small bets. Repeat past successes and keep budgets realistic and proportionate to projects. You can also target niche customer groups that you can uniquely please. Rule No. 2: Get in sync with your customers Your customers are a powerful yet often underutilized source of ideas for new products and services, improved current offerings and new ways to do business. In fact, theyre often willing to contribute by giving product improvement ideas, technical support for other customers, videos, reviews, referrals, content related to your products and other marketing value all of which helps you stay in sync, mitigate risk, and remain prepared for whatever the future might bring. You can stay ready for the future by collaborating with customers, paying attention to outliers and observing how customers customize and use your products. When you allow your customers to customize the products and services you sell, youre able to learn a lot about them, Ms. Setili says. This gives you the information you need to innovate new products and services and ways of doing things, and stimulate growth. You can also observe and cater to your outlier customers the ones who use your products and services in unusual ways to gain insights. They can provide you with a window into emerging market trends and ideas for new products and services. Rule No. 3: Partner, borrow and share In the past, businesses needed to own or take responsibility for every aspect of their value chain, from research to development to operations to sales and marketing. Not anymore. Today, businesses that grow fearlessly crowdsource, outsource and make use of freelancers, bloggers, micro-businesses, individual innovators and myriad partners to achieve far more than they could on their own. You dont need physical assets to grow huge in terms of reach and value, Ms. Setili says. Alibaba is the most valuable company in Asia, but it has no inventory. Airbnb has a greater market capitalization than Marriott, but owns no hotels or real estate. Uber is the worlds largest car service, but owns no cars. If you can collaborate with others outside your company, you can experience rapid adaption when the market changes, she adds. Plus, it benefits you to outsource things that are not your distinctive competency. Rule No. 4: Connect and strengthen When you create the right ecosystem for your company, it will take on a life of its own and grow itself. Look at Airbnb: Before it came along, staying in someones home and/or allowing someone to stay in your home was risky business because people didnt know whom to trust. But Airbnb solved this problem by creating a platform for guests and hosts to score each other. And many guests enjoy making friends with their hosts, having access to advice about local haunts, great places to eat and how to escape the tourist trail. Once an ecosystem gets going, it becomes self-sustaining and enables fearless growth. Figure out whos already in your companys ecosystem and whom you would ideally like to have there. Then determine what value you would like each member to both give and receive, Ms. Setili advises. Consider creating a technology platform to enable richer interactions between ecosystem members and facilitate and nurture their real-life relationships with each other as well. Building the strength, size and participation in your ecosystem can fuel growth, build customer loyalty and insulate your company from market upsets. Rule No. 5: Open the floodgates of employee creativity Employees want to be engaged in their work and want to contribute to something greater than themselves. Too often, however, employers squander their talent by over-measuring, micromanaging and failing to inspire. They may even punish employees who get too far ahead of company management. Its important to facilitate employees natural desire to collaborate with others and to grow their own skills. By giving employees the freedom, knowledge and network they need, you will unlock vast power. Energize your employees by instilling a sense of purpose, Ms. Setili says. Be sure to continually pose new questions and challenge assumptions by introducing competition or games to stimulate new ways of thinking and free people to take risks, she adds. Encourage collaboration by forming project-based groups, rather than top-down structures. Rule No. 6: Learn fast and fearlessly Fast learning coupled with an experimentation mindset is the most valuable competitive advantage a company can build. For example, UPS knows that regulations could someday require lower emissions and improved fuel efficiency, so it has a rolling laboratory of 11 different types of alternative-fuel and advancedtechnology vehicles in use today. Keenly observing the business environment, taking action before you feel fully ready and incorporating what youve learned immediately into your strategy are all tickets to playing in todays fastchanging global economy, Ms. Setili says. Rule No. 7: Build trust into all you do Trust is the ingredient that enables the growth of relationships with employees, business partners, customers and those in your work community. By trusting that your colleagues will do their part, you can set more aggressive goals, place bigger bets and have a bigger imagination about what might be possible. When there is trust between coworkers, everyone feels comfortable engaging in the debate and disagreement required to make sound decisions. Trust speeds innovation and growth and improves efficiency, Ms. Setili says. When you give people challenging but realistic goals, act in a transparent way, show vulnerability, grant people discretion about how they do their work and show appreciation for work done well, youll be amazed how much your team can accomplish. If youre starting to get the picture that the old ways of doing business no longer work, youre exactly right. Like it or not, its time to throw out the old rule book and start fresh with approaches that make sense for the new economy, Ms. Setili says. The strategies that help you facilitate trust, learning, creativity and partnership seem counterintuitive at first, but they will pave the way to success not only for you, but for your team and your customers as well. As president of the strategy consulting firm Setili & Associates, Ms. Setili advises clients including CocaCola, Delta Air Lines, The Home Depot, UPS and Walmart on how to respond quickly and intelligently to a changing marketplace. A past employee of McKinsey & Company and KimberlyClark, she has served as an executive with successful disruptive technology startups in the U.S. and Malaysia. She is a graduate of Vanderbilt University and Harvard Business School and has taught as an adjunct professor at Emory Universitys Goizueta Business School.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 23-29, 2017 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE A15 MONEY & INVESTINGSelling options may ease fears of potential stock market correctionWith the stock market today at record highs, investors are understandably nervous about their equity positions. Many analysts believe that a correction may be coming sooner than we would like. Of course, an option is to simply sell your holdings but many investors fear missing out if the market continues to rise. Instead, wouldnt it be wonderful if there was a way to take some money off the table while still being able to participate in the upside of the market? One way to accomplish this may be selling options against the stocks you already own, called a covered call strategy.To understand how this would work, we first must understand just what an equity call option is. A call option gives the buyer the option to purchase a stock at a given price, called the strike price, in the future in exchange for paying a specified amount of money called the premium. For example, today Apple is trading at $170 a share. I can purchase a call option to buy Apple at a strike price of $180 six months into the future for a premium of around $10 per share. Clearly this would benefit me if Apple, in six months time, trades above $180 as I purchased the right to buy it at $180 even if the market price of Apple is at $300 per share at that time. But if Apple stock price stays the same or drops during that time, my options become worthless at expiration and I lose my entire premium. After all, what good is the right to buy Apple at $180 if Apple is trading at $150? But not only can you buy calls on a stock, you can sell them as well. The upside of selling calls is that you collect a premium up front. However, selling calls on stocks that you do not own can be extremely risky as your downside is truly unlimited. For example, if you sell a call option on Apple at $180 per share you are giving someone the option to buy it at that price no matter what the price is. And if Apple skyrockets, you would be forced to go to the open market, buy the share of Apple at the market price, and give the option buyer that share of stock for only $180 per share. If Apple trades at $380 six months from now, you would lose $200 for every share of stock. If it trades at $580 you would lose $400 per share and so on. However, if you actually own a share of Apple stock, the downside of selling a call becomes limited. If Apple stock increased, you would not have to go to the market and buy the stock at the market price because you already own it. Instead, you could just turn over your share of Apple to the call buyer in exchange for the strike price. In this case, you would sell your Apple share for $180 which is more than it is trading at today. And you get to keep the premium you collected when you sold the call as well. So, the primary upside of selling a covered call is that you get income up front. This can be very appealing if you have already realized a big profit on a stock and are nervous about losing that gain. And you can pick a strike that is above the current price. Even if you are forced to sell your stock at expiration of the call, you are selling it at a price that is higher than you could sell it at today. The primary downside of selling a covered call is that the stock will continue to rise above the strike price of the option and you will miss out on any gains above that price. In addition, selling a call limits your ability to sell the stock while the call is still outstanding as you would never want to have outstanding a call where you do not own the stock. If you wanted to sell the stock, you would need to buy back the call potentially at a higher premium than you collected. Despite these drawbacks, I think covered call writing can be a way to generate income while still benefiting when stocks rise. I would be conservative when buying your first options by setting the strike high and choosing a short time to expiration so as to understand how these securities work. Of course, this will limit the premium you collect but it will be a good first step into entering the world of options. And finally, remember to never sell call options on stocks that you do not own. I would advise working with a financial professional when buying and selling these more complex securities.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF NOVEMBER 23-29, 2017 A17 larryBUSHlbush@floridaweekly.com ON THE LINKSTo improve on the future, sometimes one must look to the past. Thats sort of the dilemma facing the International team after a solid thrashing by Americas best in the Presidents Cup matches early last month in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty. The U.S. won by a 19-11 margin at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, N.J. And it really wasnt that close. To emphasize the one-sidedness of this latest meet, the U.S. needed only one singles win on Sunday to clinch the teams victory. That the Internationals won six, halved 3 and lost only 3 could hardly be called a moral victory. The U.S. has won the last seven Presidents Cup meetings, taking 10 of 12 overall. They lost in 1998 in Australia and halved in 2003 in South Africa. There are no guarantees historical, statistical or otherwise on which the Internationals can say that just because the 2019 matches return to Royal Melbourne they will be able to relive their outcome. So what are the Internationals to do to make the Presidents Cup more competitive? Nick Price, whose American home is on Jupiter Island, has captained the last three International teams. He suggests reducing the number of matches, thus lessening the Americans advantage in depth of talent. Others suggest adding women could help, say six gals to go with six guys on each team. Surely the number of very talented Japanese and South Korean women on the LPGA tour could add both balance and depth on the International side. It would be a unique change for team golf if it ever happened. So what could history teach us? Lets take a look at the Ryder Cup for one lesson. Begun in 1927, the Ryder Cup matched the U.S. against Great Britain. Ireland was added in 1973 but it didnt help, the Americans winning the next three by a combined score of 52 to 31. With the U.S. leading by 18-3-1, Jack Nicklaus of North Palm Beach, always the thoughtful sportsman, suggested after the 1977 meeting at Royal Lytham and St. Annes that the GB&I roster be expanded to include players from all of Europe Spain, Germany, Sweden, Italy and so on. By the time the 1983 matches arrived at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, the Europeans indicated they were catching on and catching up. Indeed, it came down to the last few shots on the Champion course that Sunday afternoon including a pitch to a foot by Lanny Wadkins for a clinching halfpoint before the hosts could exhale with a 14 to 13 win. Just for the fun of it, how many players on either side can you name? U.S. Captain Nicklaus with Ben Crenshaw, Raymond Floyd, Bob Gilder, Jay Haas, Tom Kite, Gil Morgan, Calvin Peete, Craig Stadler, Curtis Strange, Tom Watson, Fuzzy Zoeller and Wadkins. Europe Tony Jacklin, captain, with Seve Ballesteros, Gordon Brand Jr., Ken Brown, Jose Maria Canizares, Nick Faldo, Bernard Gallacher, Bernhard Langer, Sandy Lyle, Sam Torrance, Brian Wales, Paul Way and Ian Woosman. A lasting memory is of Mr. Jacklin trying to console Mr. Faldo on a second floor balcony at the hotel late that final evening. Since then, America has won 4, the Europeans 10 and there has been one halve. Since then, the Ryder Cup has become one of the greatest, most passionate and exciting sporting events every other year. And the years in between? Those are the years the Presidents Cup is trying to change.

Twenty years ago, Volvo amplified its hardy reputation by offering a meaner-looking all-wheel drive wagon called the Cross Country. It was an ideal blend between a college professors car and a tall crossover. During the era of the Cross Country, Volvo has also been making a move upmarket. Today, the flagship 90-series vehicles are a line that offers true luxury with Swedish flair. It mixes sturdy lines with soft gradual curves to have an Ikea-like appeal. While this is distinctive, details like the LED headlights and sweptback profile are the kind of elements that would not look out of place in other more mainstream Europeans like Audi. An interesting feature of the V90 is the body cladding. A dark plastic protection perimeter has been a hallmark of these tougher wagons. Volvo has been using it for two decades, as have other beefy suburban machines like the Subaru Outback. Cladding still comes on the base $53,292 V90 Cross Country. But a loaded test vehicle like ours costs around $70K. And it includes a package that makes the cladding body-colored. Theres an argument that this kind of appearance takes some of the distinctiveness away from the Cross Country versus the standard V90 wagon. But for those who are getting happy with the option boxes, it seems fitting that a vehicle costing nearly triple the amount of an Outback can choose to look less like a Subaru. The flagship V-series cars are ushering in a new generation of premium interiors. Soft leathers, piano black trim and a jewel-like ignition switch. The rear seats even have an option to have their own individual climates. As a true Volvo, its loa ded with safety features. It includes whiplash protection, lane departure warning, pedestrian/lowspeed collision avoidance and plenty of airbags. It has Vo lvos lat est semi-autonomous features, which means the car is programmed to be more cautious than most Florida drivers. But what really gives the V90 an upperclass distinction is its infotainment system. The iPod-like finger-swipe interface is part of its Sensus system. Its modern, premium and one of the best ways to provide many features without being distracting or confusing.The stereo has a setting to turn the cavernous interior into the best seat in the Gothenburg Concert Hall. Only the most passionate audiophiles will really hear the difference this makes. Still, its likely many owners who choose the $3,200 Bowers and Wilkins sound package will leave this setting on just to show it off to friends. Gimmick or not, its a unique feature that can make a Mercedes or BMW owner jealous and thats the larger point. Part of the premium car shopping allure is looking for the best one-upmanship features. The ride is another key distinction of the V90 Cross Country over a taller crossover/SUV. It feels like a confident European sports sedan on the road, because thats its closest relative. In fact, with the selectable suspension setting, the dynamic mode adds a bit of fun to the family wagon.Plus, theres some genuine off-road ability. The Cross Country is 2.6 inches taller than the standard V90 wagon. The allwheel drive system has a lowspeed (40 mph) off-road mode. It was developed to make sure that no icy Swedish driveway was impassable in the winter. For Floridians that means the V90 Cross Country has the right gearing for sandy trails. Volvo has placed its future firmly in the hands of a hardy 2.0-liter four-cylinder motor. In our upper-level T6 trim, this is supercharged and turbocharged to 316 horsepower. Whats most remarkable about getting so much power out of such a small displacement is how unremarkable it feels. The delivery is smooth, and theres always plenty of extra pep on tap. Its just like the hot six-cylinder turbo offerings in previous generations. The big difference with the four-cylinder is fuel economy. The V90 Cross Country now requires premium fuel, but it yields a 25 percent increase in average gas mileage compared to its last turbo predecessor (25 mpg verses 20 mpg.) An overly aggressive start/stop function also aids in economy, but anyone who wants to defeat this can do it through the individual driver settings. In total, Volvo is now a solidly European luxury marque. The sensible Swedish brand has graduated from being just a college professors car. But the V90 Cross Country has not forgotten its lesson in business, ethics, and architecture. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com
PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 23-29, 2017 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE A19 PET TALESAmerican made BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationLots of dog and cat breeds have a history that seemingly stretches back into the mists of time.

The original cocker spaniel was developed in Britain, although a distinct American variety was recognized in the U.S. in 1946. The labrador and curly coat were developed in Britain. The Chihuahua is native to Mexico. 3. The American water spaniel is the state dog of Wisconsin, where the curly coated breed was developed to hunt from boats. 4. The blue lacy is the official state dog of Texas, where it is a herding, tracking and hunting dog. 5. All of these dogs found a home with American farmers, who prized them for their versatile working abilities and family friendliness. 6. Maryland named the calico a pattern, not a breed the state cat in 2001 because the orange, black and white colors match those of the Baltimore oriole and the Baltimore checkerspot butterfly. 7. The state cat of Massachusetts is the tabby. Tabbies arent a specific breed, but their stripes often form the shape of an M on the cats forehead, possibly the inspiration for their choice as state cat. 8. The American wirehair was developed from a cat with a natural mutation that was first seen in upstate New York. American foxhounds were named the official state dog of Virginia in 1966.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 23-29, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY ANTIQUESThere were no scrambles for the wishbone during first Thanksgivings BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVEL Thinking about Thanksgiving dinner? If you want to copy the menu used by the Pilgrims, you cant eat turkey. Historic letters written by the Pilgrims describe Thanksgiving in 1691, mentioning the guests, the foods and the activities. The Wampanoag Indian guests at the celebration brought venison to eat. The English Pilgrims say they brought fowl, which probably meant ducks or geese that were migrating during the fall. There also was mention of cider. Turkeys were not mentioned for the celebration, although they were eaten at other times. Also available and known to be part of the American Indians food were cod, eels, corn, beans, onions, turnips and spinach. Later letters mention fish, lobster, clams, berries, pumpkins and squash. There was no sweetener for cranberries to make sauce, but boiled, baked or raw cranberries were eaten. The turkey was first promoted as the main part of a Thanksgiving dinner in about 1800 and didnt become part of most traditional dinners until 1857. Q: I have a deep-blue Biskra vase made by R. Lalique. Its about 11 inches high. Someone wants to buy it. Ive done research but am hoping to get some advice about the price someone would expect to pay for it. A: Biskra vases were made by Lalique about 1932. They were made in several different colors, including blue, pale green, red, yellow amber and opalescent. The vases have sold at auction for several thousand dollars. A large blue vase like yours sold for over $8,000 recently. Q: I have most of a set of Burleigh Ware Willow dishes. Are they of any value? A: Burleigh Ware was made by Burgess & Leigh (Ltd.), a pottery in Burslem, Staffordshire, England. It operated as Burgess & Leigh beginning in 1877. The company was sold in 1999. It has been part of Denby Holdings since 2010 and is now called Burleigh. The Willow pattern originally was a Chinese pattern. It was copied by many manufacturers. Burgess & Leigh began making Willow pattern dishes in the early 1920s. The blueand-white Willow pattern still is popular today. You might be able to sell the dishes to a matching service, but then you have to pack them, pay charges and ship them. You can try to sell them locally to an antiques dealer or donate them to a charity and take the tax deduction. Partial sets of dishes are not selling well online or in shops. Q: My 12-inch mercury glass cake pedestal is developing mold spots. Its stored in a china cabinet. The mold is on the top and bottom sides only. How should I clean it and keep it from getting spots? A: Mercury glass, or silvered glass, doesnt have mercury or silver in it. It was first made in the 1850s by blowing the glass into a mold. Antique mercury glass has double walls and was coated between the walls with a silver nitrate solution before sealing the hole on the bottom with a plug. Dirt and air get inside between the walls if the plug has deteriorated. A light dusting usually is enough to keep the outside of the glass clean. If more is needed, it can be cleaned by using a Q-tip or soft toothbrush and a good glass cleaner. If your cake pedestal was washed, moisture may have gotten in between the walls. If mold is inside the walls of your glass cake pedestal, its probably impossible to restore. Q: Ive been trying to research the value of Jim Beam car decanters. Do you have any idea where I might obtain the information? A: Jacob Beam began selling Old Jake Beam w hiskey in 1795 The company was renamed Jim Beam in 1933. Beam began selling Christmas season whiskey in glass cocktail shaker decanters in 1953. The decanters were so popular that Beam began selling liquor in ceramic decanters made by Regal China in 1955. T he Beam decanters lost favor by 1992, and prices plummeted. The Volkswagen decanter that was $65-$70 in 2000 sells for as low as $20. Tip: Old papers and documents kept in a box can be kept from yellowing by including an anti-tarnish strip in the box. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

COLLECTORS CORNER Trim the tree with memories this holiday season scott SIMMONS email@example.com I was the little boy who loved Christmas. By this time of the year in the early 1970s, I already would have been plotting the installation of our Christmas tree. For years, we had an artificial tree. I couldnt understand why people discarded their trees after the holidays when my mother and my grandparents neatly tucked theirs away in a closet or the attic come January. So the week after each Christmas, I dragged home trees that I stood in the back yard and decorated with flowers and discarded ornaments. One year, I set a tree atop a pinecone in the hopes it would regenerate. Of course, we know how that ended. The move toward artificial trees was a practical one. The year I turned 2, Grandma had shopped for fresh trees at all the usual places in Fort Myers Corbins, the Optimist Clubs lot and determined that the trees looked like dead, spraypainted pines. She was shopping one afternoon in Sears at the new Edison Mall, where cellophane trees were on sale. They cost less than a fresh tree, so she bought one. That evening, my grandfather assembled the tree, standing it atop the dining table and sticking the branches into the center pole. Bits of cellophane fell everywhere, just like needles from a fresh tree. It lacked the scent of a fresh tree, but that fake fir lent a touch of magic to the room with its winking lights and sparkling Shiny Brite ornaments. The lights always held sway. One year, during the Arab Oil Embargo, my grandfather decreed that we could put lights on the tree, but not plug them in until Christmas to save electricity. Naturally, nobody listened to that decree, but I remember Grandma telling me how her grandfather always lit candles on their tree when she and Aunt Lizzie were girls. Around that time, the Maas Brothers department store carried an extensive holiday shop, where you could buy elaborate blown-glass ornaments made by hand in Germany for under a dollar. Who needed Disney World when you had a fantasy land like that? Id save my lawn-mowing money and my allowance to buy one of the baubles for myself. Id also buy ornaments to use as gifts. That was me as a boy. In 2017, life can be busy, and that means I may wait until Christmas Eve to trim a tree. I now have my grandparents ornaments, in addition to many of the baubles I bought as a boy. When I trim my own tree, I grab a hook and I remember giving Grandma this ball or hanging that ornament from the chandelier over the dining table. Grandpa died in 2000 and Grandma followed in 2007, and I miss both of them. Somehow, the gentle memories of Christmas ease the pain of separation. When I see the sparkling tree, Im like a child again, with two parents, four loving grandparents and a lifetime of Christmases ahead of me. I wish you happy memories this holiday season.

First Congregational United Church of Christ and The Lake Worth Interfaith Network hope to address that by offering Keeping Faith: Sisters of Story, set for 3 p.m. Dec. 3. With the uptick of vitriolic language since the 2016 election, Rohina Malik, a Muslim woman and storyteller, wanted to create a project to demonstrate peace and commonalities between all people. She approached Susan Stone, who is a Jewish woman and storyteller, and Kim Schultz, who identifies as a Christian woman and storyteller, with an idea: What if we all told stories from our faiths with the goal of bringing people together and showing peace, curiosity and similarities among the faiths. Ms. Malik, who was born in London, is a critically acclaimed Chicago playwright and solo performance artist who has written Unveiled, The Mecca Tales and Yasminas Necklace. Based in Chicago, Ms. Schultz is an actor/writer/improv corporate trainer who has written two books. Her most recent volume, Three Days in Damascus, is about her falling in love with an Iraqi refugee. Ms. Stone, who hails from the Chicago area, teaches storytelling to teachers at National-Louis University, is a published author, and has been honored with awards for her CDs (Parents Choice Gold Award, Storytelling World Award, NAPPA Gold Award).School Library Journal calls her an incredibly talented storyteller. Each woman tells three stories inspired by her personal faith journey. In a statement, the women shared the thought, We hope you agree that now more than ever, we need to come together and decide who we are going to be as a community and as a nation and how we are going to allow our story to be told. The event is free and open to the public. Lake Worth Interfaith Network says it is dedicated to promoting acceptance and understanding among our diverse spiritual traditions through devotions, education and compassionate action. The First Congregational Church is at 1415 N. K St., Lake Worth. Info: 561-582-6691 or www.fcclw.org.

HAPPENINGSFrom page 1 by social and economic inequality. Its where an oligopoly of plutocrats control the information we receive, where unionization is discouraged, and where women strain to be taken seriously in a patriarchal culture. When I interviewed the director and actors of Maltz Jupiter Theatres production, conversations splintered into discussions of Harvey Weinstein, Rupert Murdoch and fake news. In 1899, they were experiencing hardships were still experiencing in 2017, says John Arthur Greene, who plays Jack, the conflicted leader of the newsies. We havent learned from our mistakes. We havent even learned from our successes. So I think its extremely relevant to hear this message and see these characters develop and really understand the struggle. Clara Cox, who portrays Katherine, the budding journalist who documents the newsboys struggle, agrees. The [show] talks about womens rights, child labor laws, unions. These are all issues that are on the table right now. I think its cool to bring those issues to people on their own terms, on the platform of entertainment, on the platform of a Disney musical. I think there will be something for everybody in this show, especially now. The inclusion of Newsies in Maltzs 2017-2018 season is no coincidence. Its the second of five shows that give voice to disenfranchised minorities, sandwiched between the female self-actualization of Born Yesterday and the integration battle of Hairspray. Were in the thick of the companys most progressive season to date. [Newsies is] a show that talks about oppression, says director Marcos Santana. Its a show that talks about human rights, that talks about the power of unity. Its about a historical event that takes place in 1899, and here we are in 2017 and were still facing those things. Yet based on its provenance, Newsies seems an odd fit for a season of change. The musical is based on the much-maligned 1992 movie of the same name a star-studded boondoggle short-listed for the worst picture of that year. Disney had enough faith in the property to resurrect it onstage, adding new songs and enlisting Harvey Fierstein to improve the book. After it transferred to Broadway, in 2012, it won two of its eight Tony nominations, prompting a national and international tour (A filmed version of the Broadway production debuted on Netflix this fall, and its well worth seeing). The David-and-Goliath story centers on a clutch of wiseacre boys from hardknock lives who earn slave wages hawking newspapers on the streets of New York. When Joseph Pulitzer callously hikes up the price he charges his newsboys, Jack Kelly, a winsome dreamer with a hidden artistic talent and a yen for the American Southwest, emerges as the newsies default protest leader. Hes aided by his disabled companion, Crutchie; Davey, a brooding newsie whose book-smarts complement Jacks streetwise industriousness; and Katherine, who functions as both love interest and proto-feminist embodiment. For all of its forward-thinking ideas, Newsies is equally a dazzling dance show in the tradition of West Side Story. In his directorial debut at the Maltz, Mr. Santana aims to maintain the shows reputation as a choreographic spectacle full of actors flying and dancing and doing crazy things. For me its a cakewalk, Ms. Cox admits. The ones that are working are the boys. The dancing is unbelievable. People are going to be on the literal edge of their seats when they see it, because its so spectacular. Its technical, and its motivated, and its energizing and inspiring. The production also takes the show in new directions of verisimilitude, according to Mr. Santana. Though his wish to deploy actual dirt in the rusted steel scenic design of inner-city New York ultimately was denied, his desire to feature female newsies in the typically all-male ensemble received a hearty green light. When we were casting, we thought we had to find girls we could dress as boys, and then I did some research, Mr. Santana recalls. I found in the Library of Congress several pictures of girl newsies. They were dressed like girls they had their skirts, they had their dresses. They had the same rough life as the boy newsies. The idea of putting Katherine as a progressive, independent young lady why not enhance that with a female ensemble as well, and portray them as they should be? To me, onstage, an actor is an actor, Mr. Santana adds. I dont see an actor of color, or a Latin actor, or an American actor, or a Caucasian actor. And now, shows like Hamilton are giving us permission. Shakespeare used to do it; the Greeks used to do it. Why are we not doing this anymore? Im glad that Andrew [Kato, producing artistic director at the Maltz] is taking chances. I applaud that, because at the end of the day, its art theres no color, theres no gender in art.

B12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 23-29, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY FLORIDA WRITERSShowing kids how ordinary people can have enormous effects on our world I Am Gandhi and I Am Sacagawea by Brad Meltzer. Illustrated by Christopher Eliopoulos. Dial Books for Young Readers, 40 pages. Hardcover, $14.99.These two recent titles add scope and impact to Brad Meltzers already substantial Ordinary People Change the World series. The series of picture books, which has 2 million copies in print, provides young readers (as well as their parents and grandparents), with laudable heroes. The hook is that as children they were not so exceptional. Another attraction is that Mr. Meltzer has these historical characters tell their own stories. He invents friendly voices for each of them, voices inviting to the children being addressed. I Am Gandhi, the narrator announces his inauspicious beginnings. Small of stature, the socially backward boy was a poor soccer player and a mediocre student. Early on, he became attracted to the lives of those who had helped others. He was sensitive to the fact many people were desperately poor and consistently treated as unworthy beings. Laws prevented them from improving their lives. He reveals how his life in South Africa, where Indians were suppressed, led him to be politically active but never violent. He would break laws that were prejudicial, accept the punishment and exercise his mind to find new paths for successful protest. This paved the way for the Indian Relief act of 1914 and set the pattern for his later activities back in India through the Indian National Congress. This political force slowly broke down the shackles of British rule of India. Gandhis commitment to nonviolent but unshakeable protest influenced future leaders throughout the world. I Am Sacagawea repeats the formula while providing insights into a very different slice of history. The young Shoshoni Indian tells about her tribe being attacked by another tribe. She was captured and given to a French Canadian man. At that time, she received her name. She also became pregnant and had a child named Pomp. This teenager proved her worth as a translator, as someone who understood the terrain that the Lewis and Clark expedition first encountered, and as someone capable of finding food and of rescuing supplies that had fallen from a boat. This young girl saved the soldiers and frontiersman; she also helped them obtain much-needed horses from the Shoshoni, whose territory the expedition entered for that reason. Not content to remain with her tribe, she continued on with the Corps of Discovery, carrying her child, and reached the Pacific. Mr. Meltzer imbeds a good deal of early 1800-era history in his brief narrative. The impact of these two books and the whole series results from the shared vision of the author and the illustrator. The language and the art are in perfect synch with one another. These are books that empower young people to dream big while recognizing that dreaming is not enough. Best for readers 5 to 8 years old and in kindergarten through grade 3. About the author and illustratorBrad Meltzer is The New York Times bestselling author of Heroes for My Son, Heroes for My Daughter and many suspense novels, including The House of Secrets. He hosts the History Channel television shows Brad Meltzers Decoded and Brad Meltzers Lost History. He also helped find the missing 9/11 flag that firefighters raised at Ground Zero. He lives in Florida with his wife and their three children. Christopher Eliopoulos began his illustration career at Marvel and has worked on thousands of comics, including Franklin Richards: Son of a Genius, Pet Avengers, Cow Boy and Cosmic Commandos, all of which he wrote and illustrated. He lives in New Jersey with his wife and their identical twin sons. 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. s h philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com MELTZER LATEST FILMSJustice League1/2Is it worth $10? YesThe opening scene in Justice League is, in a word, lame. Batman (Ben Affleck) stops a petty criminal, and then uses the criminal as bait to draw a large mosquito-looking demon to them. The sequence is dark, cartoonish, and doesnt look impressive at all. This is not a good start to a movie DC Comics fans cant wait to see after the tremendous success of Wonder Woman earlier this year. Thankfully Justice League and its new characters grow on you over the course of its 121 minutes, making it a moderate success that gets better as it goes. As it turns out, the aforementioned mosquito was a scout for Steppenwolf, a CGI-created villain played by veteran character actor Ciaran Hinds. Steppenwolf wants to take over the world by gathering three mother boxes that will make him all-powerful. He is large and imposing, and if you find that his name prompts you to sing Magic Carpet Ride in your head, you will not be alone. Whats Batman to do against giant mosquitoes and a villain who was born to be wild? Create a team, of course. He and Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) remain on good terms. They also recruit the superfast Flash (Ezra Miller), the half man/half machine Cyborg (Ray Fisher), and the amphibious Aquaman (Jason Momoa). Some come more willingly than others, but each has a unique skill that pays off in key moments. Whats interesting about Justice League is that the more you watch the more you enjoy it. The opening moments are dark and dour, and even Wonder Womans entrance is botched (it shouldve come as she crashes through the door youll know what I mean when you see it). Then, the Flash offers some levity, Cyborg gets cooler and less self-pitying, and Aquaman lets the fun part of his personality show. This is all essential. Previously Batman has been depressing and Superman has been onenote boring. Surrounding them with more playful characters makes the movies more engaging, and boy, has this franchise needed that. Perhaps one reason for the tonal shift is that director Zack Snyder, who also made Man Of Steel and Batman v. Superman, stepped away from postproduction earlier this year after his daughters suicide. In stepped co-writer Joss Whedon to finish the film, which led to $25 million worth of reshoots and additional scenes. Judging by the tone of Whedons wildly successful The Avengers movies, its fair to extrapolate that at least some of the lighter style and humor in Justice League comes from Whedons influence. To be clear, though, the story itself is nothing special, and the dialog is as straightforward as it comes. The action and visual effects will not impress you, though there are some cool sequences. Ultimately, Justice League earns a reluctant recommendation because it has just enough to let you walk out feeling like it wasnt a total waste of time. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Brett Ratners production company helped nance Wonder Woman; Gadot said that because of the sexual misconduct allegations against Ratner she will not sign on for Wonder Woman 2 (scheduled for December 2019) until he is no longer associated with the project.Did you know? Daddys Home 2 (Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell, Mel Gibson) Co-dads Dusty (Wahlberg) and Brad (Ferrell) have their own fathers (Gibson and John Lithgow) come to town for Christmas, which leads to family chaos. Its notably funnier than its 2015 predecessor, and is the perfect way to get in the Christmas spirit this year. Rated PG-13.Wonderstruck 1/2(Julianne Moore, Millicent Simmonds, Oakes Fegley) In separate storylines set 50 years apart (1927 and 1957), deaf 12-year-olds (Simmonds and Fegley) in New York City search for what they feel their lives are missing. Strong performances, great visuals and masterful direction from Todd Haynes (Carol) make this one of the nicest and most fulfilling movie experiences of the year. Rated PG.Thor: Ragnarok 1/2(Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Cate Blanchett) Thor (Hemsworth) and Hulk (Ruffalo) must save Thors home planet of Asgard from the villainess Hela (Blanchett). The action and visual effects are top notch, and best of all its hilarious from start to finish. Rated PG-13.Suburbicon 1/2(Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac) In a perfect 1950s American town, a home invasion kills Gardners (Damon) wife (Moore), leaving him with his son (Noah Jupe) and sister-in-law (Moore again) to care for. Theres much more to the story than that, but it doesnt matter because nothing about this movie is in the least bit entertaining. Rated R. FILM CAPSULES

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 23-29, 2017 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY VINOThe new face of Australian wineBeginning in 2005, Sarah Marquis and Sparky Marquis produced stunning world-class wines in McLaren Vale, Australia. The winery is named Mollydooker, which is Australian slang for a left-handed person. The couples bold red wines garner outstanding ratings from critics all over the world. Their Carnival of Love Shiraz was Wine Spectator Number 2 Wine of the Year in 2016, and many of their other brands have received outstanding ratings. Recently, however, a break-up between the two has left Sarah Marquis as the sole owner of the winery, and the new face of the brand. Since the beginning, Sparky Marquis, personable and outgoing, had served as the brand ambassador. Now its Sarah Marquis turn, and its apparent shes up to the task. She is confident in her ability to guide the winery and the brands into the future. Were absolutely going to maintain our unique style, she said during a conversation at the New York Wine Experience in October. The wines intensity on the palate is very important. She and her winemaking team measure intensity by what they uniquely call fruit weight, a sensory term that embodies the velvety sensation of the wine on the palate, and its concentration. She plans to continue and build on the brands somewhat irreverent approach to the way their wines are named and handled. Names of the wines include Barefoot Boy, Velvet Glove, C arnival of Love and Enchanted Path. The couple also created the Mollydooker Shake as a way to make wine open up and breathe. Most of us would carefully uncork our bottles and pour the wine gently into a decanter, being careful not to agitate it or bruise the delicate liquid. Not these people. At a lunch a few years ago, Sparky Marquis opened a bottle of Carnival of L ove, poured about three ounces into a glass, replaced the cap and gave the bottle a vigorous and punishing shake. He poured another glass, and we tasted the unshaken wine next to the one that had been mistreated. Night and day. The shaken wine was much more open, fruity and accessible. Sarah Marquis intends to carry on that tradition. In June, Mollydooker at Sea, a seven-night Caribbean cruise, will include intimate tastings, blending classes and wine lunches and dinners. For information on the cruise, email firstname.lastname@example.org. While some Mollydooker wines, such as the highly-rated Velvet Glove, run into the $150 range, the big, bold Carnival of Love and Enchanted Path Shirazes can be found for around $60, and are worth every nickel. Fortunately, the winery produces several quite pleasing wines for daily enjoyment, such as Two Left Feet red blend, The Maitre D Merlot and The Boxer Shiraz. All are available for well under $25 each. Meanwhile, enjoy our latest discoveries. Vietti Roero Arneis 2016 ($20) Arneis is a seldom seen white wine that wed like to get more of. All but forgotten until late in the 20th century, the quality and reputation have both come a long way in recent years. The word arneis, many believe, is a variation of anise, because this grape often has hints of licorice. We didnt detect that dimension in this sample from Italys Roero region, but enjoyed the citrus and yellow fruit flavors, along with peach, guava and mango. Theres zippy acidity that would pair well with seafood and shellfish. WW 86. Amici Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2015 ($25) This 100 percent Chardonnay is a great wine to enjoy on its own because of the pronounced oak and citrus aromas and flavors. Theres tropical fruit, pineapple, guava, mango, and even coconut. Some of the panel members were reminded of pia colada. Wellbalanced and lots of fun. WW 91. Ask the Wine WhispererQ: What can I do about side effects, like headaches, I feel from the sulfites and histamines in wine? Is there such a thing as wine that doesnt contain those ingredients? Is there any way to remove them from wine? Gina L., Fort LauderdaleA: Unfortunately for some, histamines occur in wine as a natural by-product of fermentation. Not many people react negatively to them, but some do. And, while only about 1 percent of the population is actually allergic to sulfites, some people have a troublesome reaction. I have just found out about a device that actually removes sulfites and histamines from wine, and am in the process of researching it and verifying that it actually works. If it does, I will report on it in this column. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer. He is wine director of the international Direct Cellars wine club. His book, Secrets of the Wine Whisperer, is available through his website.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 23-29, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15The Dish: Deviled Eggs BLT The Place: Burger Bar, Donald Ross Village, 4560 Donald Ross Road, Palm Beach Gardens; 561-630-4545 or www. burgerbar.com. The Price: $7 The Details: Burger Bar has revamped its menu with the help of Chef Eric Baker, who most recently was at Maxs Harvest in Delray Beach and is building a new restaurant, Mazies, along West Palm Beachs Antique Row. We loved this starter essentially, a creamy deviled egg topped with Chef Bakers version of millionaires bacon. But this millionaires bacon had a Florida touch, with a glaze of guava jelly, which was sweet, but not too sweet. The eggs were served on a bed of lettuce, topped with thin-sliced cherry tomato and minced scallions. We also enjoyed the Spicy Redneck burger, with cole slaw and jalapeos, served atop a perfectly toasted roll. Also interesting: Chef Bakers take on a Greek salad, with all the usual accoutrements topped by a lamb burger patty.

He frequently has patrons on their toes even passersby on the sidewalk. Jan Norris FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE janNORRISjan@jannorris.com VIPs got a look at Restoration Hardware s $26 million new four-floor gallery and restaurant in downtown West Palm Beach last week. All stops were pulled out for the event that saw celebs and local elite getting glimpses of RH CEO Gary Friedman, actor Matthew McConaughey, golfer Greg Norman and other notables while checking out the galleries. In the almost 80,000-square-foot building, the rooms are designed as a blur between residential and retail, according to publicists living and relaxing spaces leading into bedrooms and baths organically. The large windows fold open, revealing walk-outs to balconies and courtyards. On each floor for the party, small bites were provided by the RH chef, Seth Kirschbaum, working with staff from the firms Chicago restaurant brought in for the party. Cipriani NYC restaurant brought a bellini bar to the first floor, with drinks accompanied by a serving of pr osciuttowrapped figs. The living space moved seamlessly to the outer courtyard fitted with a fountain and outdoor comfy lounge furniture where a Frose bar was set up to serve slushy, slightly sweet ros. Mini bottles of iced Belvedere Vodka fitted with straws filled a bar carved of ice it was the coolest room in the house. It was served with tiny potatoes filled with caviar and crme fraiche on the second level, where living spaces were surrounded by modern bedroom and bath galleries with signature chandeliers of crystals and glass. A crostini with fresh tomato and herbs was one of the bites; a truffled grilled cheese sandwich, quickly snapped up by guests wanting more, was another. On the third floor showcasing modern but charming tot and cheeky teen designs, a candy buffet was set out with bags and scoops for filling. A tart, minty mojito was passed as the drink, and thick beef sliders with fresh pickled cucumbers were brought hot from the kitchen, along with mini lobster rolls overflowing with lobster meat. The atrium and skylight punctuated the fourth floor, where an ice bar filled with stone crab claws and dips was crowded with takers; this area transited to the top level where guests can peer down into the first floor with tiered, suspended chandeliers making a functional modern art sculpture. The restaurant, a partnering with Brendan Sodikoff the man behind Gilt Bar, the Doughnut Vault and several other concepts in Chicago, is open to the public and eventually will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. The lounge seating around a central fountain is surrounded by a wine wall with tasting rooms, and tables scattered throughout. A balcony overlooking the downtown and Palm Beach beyond could be set for a special seating. A full bar, with numerous craft beers, are part of the restaurant and caf-area, where espresso and a bakery menu will be served. The tiered building rising in the middle of Okeechobee Boulevard between CityPlace and the Palm Beach County Convention Center and Hilton was delayed from a summer opening to a grand opening scheduled for Dec. 1. The design is loosely based on the Los Angeles gallery, built to fit into residential and downtown space. In briefGetting into the holidays, restaurants move from pumpkin spice to eggnog and peppermint. Check out the eggnog frozen yogurt at Menchies in PGA Commons, and the new drink special at Brios Tuscan Grille in The Gardens Mall a Bulleit Nog-Chata, with Bulleit Rye, RumChata, crme anglaise, and spices.
