First of all, Californias population includes 3 million more people than Canadas, the worlds second largest nation with something on the order of 9.9 million square kilometers. Almost 40 million Californians find themselves stuffed into that little squeezebox, but less than 37 million Canadians inhabit the vast lands to the north of our borders. So what do they do with all that extra room up there? I dont know, but clearly most of it is uninhabitable to sensible humans its just too cold. Theres the city of Toronto, of course, and a pleasant little town in the Rockies called Banff and a charming French restaurant, Europa, on the other end of the country in Montreal, on Mountain Street. Anybody could live in those places, even Floridians. At Europa, for example, you can sit down to Homard de la Gaspesie en fricassee et au beurre. Ris de veau caramelizes au Porto, tagliatelles XXL faiches a la crme de Vermouth et de zesta de citron. Truffles fraiche et foie gras rape. And all for a relatively inexpensive price: your first born, your car or your house, depending on which looks better and causes less trouble. The Canadians have turned the rest over to indigenous species: some 25,000 grizzly bears and 500,000 black bears, all of whom have voting rights, free medical care and honorary memberships in the middle class. Canadas middle class, in fact, has now surpassed ours as the most prosperous in the world, defined by median annual income which means Canadians should now update their national anthem for accuracy. Called O Canada because the songwriters couldnt figure out what else to say before Canada (Looky here, didnt seem to work), the anthem has three or four lines now slightly antiquated: Glorious deeds circle your brow/For your arm knows how to wield the sword/Your arm knows how to carry the cross Perhaps they should add, And your brain knows how make a middle class, before finishing with the traditional lines: Your history is an epic/of brilliant deeds! As Ive noted before in this space, both times the United States tried to invade Canada and take over we got our rear ends handed to us on a block of ice, with a polite invitation and a smile: Try again anytime, boys, eh? Those were brilliant deeds, yes. And so is the creation of a large and prosperous middle class. I attribute all of it, as any rational person would, to Canadas extraordinary prime minister, the winner of a special committees Blue Ribbon Pedigree Prize for Finest Looking Statesman in the 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. You probably know him by one or two of his four names: Justin Pierre James Trudeau, PC MP. When I mentioned a few weeks ago that Prime Minister Trudeau should offer Americans the chance to become the 11th Province Canada only has 10, and God knows we need some help from somewhere I was guilty of making a false assumption, the first since 1975: I assumed that Mr. Trudeau had won both the trust and the deep respect of all Canadians, and they would happily, to a man and woman, defer to his judgment in the matter. I am bitterly disappointed to have to admit that is not the case. There is one Canadian, at least, who wishes Mr. Trudeaus name was Trump. He would not be pleased if, for example, Mr. Trump and co. were fed to a polar bear while the U.S. joined Canada with hat in hand, humbled and relieved. (Polar bears in Canada are on welfare now, unlike grizzlies and black bears, because theyre running out of ice, so they could use the high-calorie food supplement). He wrote me this letter: I read your column with interest in Florida Weekly, especially this week I, as a Canadian, do not agree with your idea that all Canadians are opposed to Trump and pro-Trudeau. This is not so, I have my make America great again hat and am hoping that this airhead Trudeau will be a one-term only prime minister, we suffered through his father so we dont need him too, what we need is our version of Trump! Thanks, Peter Bondsfield. Mr. Bondsfield appears to disagree with many of his fellow Canadians, probably the ones who eat in old Montreal at Europa where they dont print menus in English, or those who prefer to speak one or two of the 65 other distinct languages and dialects Canadians share besides English. English happens to be the native tongue to only 57 percent of the country, people with names like Bondsfield. French is the first language for about 21 percent, and my personal favorite, Mohawk, is still spoken by 290 people, according the Canadas Official Languages Commissioner. Do we Americans have an Official Languages Commissioner? No. We werent smart enough to think of that. But they do. He has plenty to say, too, and not just about life there, in the north, in O Canada: In the same way that race is at the core of what it means to be American and at the core of an American experience, and class is at the core of a British experience, I think that language is at the core of a Canadian experience, said Commissioner Raymond Theberge. And here I thought it was God, Guns and Guts at the core of our experience. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

After the college Division I championship, the other professional league the NFL will decide whos No. 1 with its playoffs and the Super Bowl, of course. The Super Bowl has become a grotesque salute to so much of what makes America what we are these days: extremely expensive excess that is only for the filthy rich; a garish halftime show; the intrigue this year about which players will ignore its contrived patriotism; and, certainly, the game itself, with injuries on seemingly every play. But most of all, the event fills the need for some venue to show those grossly expensive, clever commercials. Its a financial orgy that only the U. S. of A. could present. I wouldnt miss it. Like so many in this country, Im also mesmerized by our nonstop political unnecessary roughness. I am hooked by its bizarre characters and gross plot twists. It, too, has come to symbolize the worst of America, with greed and malice taking over a system that is supposed to serve the people but serves only a few of them the wealthy rulers who put in office the lackeys who will obediently protect their interests. But yes, I tune in religiously, along with everyone else. And, there will be some thriller matchups to begin the new year. Thats because, appropriately, Congress has punted everything to January. On Jan. 19, funding for the government runs out, meaning if the two parties cant come to some sort of big creative give-andtake, well finally have that government shutdown that has been avoided so far through schemes that delay the inevitable, the only agreements that anyone has been able to reach. That is going to require some deal on, among other contentious issues, the Dreamers. The Dreamers are the thousands of illegal immigrant children who, thanks to an order from President Donald Trump, will be forced to leave the nation where they were raised and deported to countries they havent seen since infancy. Everyone at least pays lip service to the idea that their plight should be solved, except that Trump insists the deal must include some funding for his wall. Put Democrats down in the no way column. Thats not the only play to be called in this disaster of a game we call the government of the United States. Theres the debt ceiling. Congress must approve a raise in the ceiling, and soon. Actually, weve already hit the ceiling, but our Treasury officials have been performing financial sleight of hand so that the government can keep borrowing. At stake, ultimately would be the ability to make the national debt payments and avoid the historic international embarrassment of the U.S. defaulting on its sovereign debt. Oh, I almost forgot that this is election year. Its the midterms, when all of the House seats are up, and a third of the Senates. Thanks to Donald Trump, Democrats see an opportunity to take over both if they can get organized. Thats a huge if. In fact, this years campaign is the real Super Bowl. Nothing else matters to these guys but being elected. The more accurate name for it would be the Stupid Bowl. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. The man who saved civilizationThis years best movie about a spirited band of resisters fighting an empire of evil isnt the latest entry in the Star Wars franchise, but Darkest Hour, an extraordinarily deft and moving depiction of the outset of Winston Churchills reign as prime minister during World War II. Cabinet meetings and political intrigue arent the most natural cinematic material, although the underlying event in Darkest Hour is one of the most dramatic in modern history: One man standing defiant before the onslaught of an enemy army, rallying his nation with his willpower and words. Discounting for Hollywood embellishments, the movie is worthy of this story, which is high praise indeed. In particular, Gary Oldmans portrayal of Churchill is so compelling that the Academy Award for best actor should be signed, sealed and delivered to him right now. Upon taking power, Churchill faced disaster on every front in the war, yet bucked internal political pressure to explore a deal with Adolf Hitler. In his marvelous history of this crucial interlude, Five Days in London: May 1940, the great historian John Lukacs writes, Then and there he saved Britain and Europe, and Western civilization. In 1937, Churchills reputation had been at a low ebb, but he recovered on the strength of his acuteness about Hitler. When Neville Chamberlain returned from Munich, Churchill gave a speech in the House of Commons declaring we have sustained a total and unmitigated defeat. Britains position slid downward from there. The same day that Churchill became prime minister, Hitlers army invaded Western Europe in earnest, sweeping all before it and eventually trapping the British at Dunkirk. Given the circumstances, the desire of Viscount Halifax, Churchills inherited foreign secretary, to explore peace terms wasnt unreasonable, just profoundly wrong. Churchill opposed any deal. He was convinced, Lukacs notes, that such a settlement, under any conditions, could not be counter-balanced by a maintenance, let alone a guarantee, of British liberty and independence. Churchill bent a little toward Halifax when he initially felt it politically necessary, but ground him down and ultimately outmaneuvered him. In a key episode, Churchill went to the larger Cabinet and won overwhelming approval for his stalwartness. Here, he made his famous statement, We shall go and we shall fight it out, here or elsewhere, and if at last the long story is to end, it were better it should end, not through surrender, but only when we are rolling senseless on the ground. After the war, Churchill wrote of the reaction of his colleagues: Quite a number seemed to jump up from the table and came running to my chair, shouting and patting me on the back. There is no doubt had I at this juncture faltered at all in leading the nation, I should have been hurled out of office. He didnt falter. Churchill tapped into and built up the resolve of the British people. There was a white glow, he wrote later, overpowering, sublime, which ran through our island from end to end. The so-called Great Man theory of history might be overly simplistic, but history indisputably has its great men. Darkest Hour does justice to one of them.

Burt Reynolds, a sea turtle named for the hometown actor, is headed to South Florida at a top speed approaching 22 mph. Burt is an Olive Ridley, one of the sea turtles rehabilitated and released by the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Jupiter. He was found tangled in 75 pounds of fish net off Hobe Sound in October 2016, brought back to health at the center, and released in Key West in August 2017. Via a tracker he wears, the centers staff knows he swam north to the Georgia border. But with the recent cold snap, He started booking it back South, said Nicole Montgomery, a certified veterinary technician who helps in the centers turtle hospital. The Marinelife Center workers are expecting other turtles headed this way, and plan to be busy now that cold weather has hit the coasts. Were on standby to receive coldstunned turtles from the East coast and the West coast, she said. We also could get them from further south. The Loggerhead Center will be helping other rescue centers in Boca Raton and Brevard County, and those on Floridas West coast that are filling up with turtles caught in the cold weather, rescued by the states Fish and Wildlife staff and volunteers who keep an eye out for the turtles in distress. Ms. Montgomery explained the results of icy air. If they get too cold, they can become stranded trying to get to warm water, and will go into shock, and that leads to other issues. Exposure to icy water can be critical for the sea creatures, with turtles up around the Cape Cod area showing frostbite or developing pneumonia in the shallower and cooler water. Turtles there get disoriented, and caught in the bays trying to swim South. Kemps Ridley and some loggerheads that went north to feast on lobsters in the fall got caught in the blizzard conditions and were picked up along the coasts there. Even Floridas cold snap caught some of the warmer Atlantics turtles off guard. Mostly, these were sick or distressed animals to begin with, she said. The center takes them in, and the work to rehab them begins. We bring them in and warm them up, weight them, and do blood work to check for infections. Most are weak, and malnourished, she said. Once healthy again, theyre released, preferably close to where they stranded. A recent patient is Tiffany, an endangered hawksbill sea turtle, and a rarer find on South Floridas beaches than loggerheads. The turtle is uncommon here, preferring to stay around Central and South American waters. She came into the St. Lucie power plant cooling area. Her skin was covered in barnacles thats not normal for a healthy turtle to have them on their skin. Mostly you find barnacles on their carapace, and only a few, Ms. Montgomery said. Having them on her skin indicates an unhealthy turtle. That she could be taken easily by rescuers also was a sign she was ill. Theyre very fast, she said, and swim away quickly from perceived danger if healthy. Tiffany was brought in and diagnosed as chronic debilitated and was both lethargic and malnourished, Ms. Montgomery said. Tiffany is so large a turtle that she hangs off the exam table, yet is underweight for her age. Shes a sub adult, and can eventually weigh up to 350 pounds. Shes getting nutrients and antibiotics via IV now to bring her back. Her blood work was normal, but we suspect theres a bacterial infection, the vet tech said. Shes eating and gaining weight. Definitely improving. Visitors at the center can view Tiffany and other turtles in habilitation in the outdoor tanks, while others can follow their progress online on the centers website, www.marinecenter.org. There, Burt Reynolds and other releases also can be tracked. The website also lists all the activities offered by the center, which is expected to break ground this year for a sizeable expansion. Spokeswoman Hannah Deadman said the center is halfway to its fundraising goal of $15 million. The money will be used for expanding the research lab, doubling the size of the visitors center and adding educational facilities and programs, which have grown remarkably in the last decade. The center thrives on community participation. Admission is donationbased, and visitors flock in, especially during the holiday break, to see the exhibits and recovering sea turtles in the hospital tanks. It was packed during Decembers near freeze. When we opened this facility in 2007, we had 70,000 visitors, Ms. Deadman said. Last year, we had 350,000. In 2017, there were 50,000 registered students in our education programs. Several area businesses have partnered with the center, including Florida Power and Light, which helped build the tanks for the sick turtles. Most recent is Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa, a beachfront resort in Manalapan, which is partnering with the Sea Turtle Hospital at the center to promote ocean conservation. A sea turtle was named Eau-tis to acknowledge the hotels participation. Turtles are put up for adoption by individuals and groups as they go through the centers process to put them back at sea. Rescues, turtle releases and egg hatchings are announced on the website for those interested in participating.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 11-17, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY You sometimes question how can I be so unhappy when Im married to such a charming and successful husband? But then you remember how he constantly puts you down in front of your family. How he belittles you and questions your intelligence. And how he constantly controls you, manipulates you, and prevents you from having normal relationships with friends and loved ones. Youre not a greedy person. All you want is to be happy, and feel appreciated in your life, and in your marriage. But you know deep down that this is never going to get better. Your husband is not changing. In fact, hes just getting worse. Divorce is something you never thought youd ever experience, but you know you must leave the marriage if youre ever going to have a chance at happiness. And you know nows the time. Your children have grown into adults and youre not getting any younger. But at the same time youre worried. You dont know where to start, or how all this needs to happen. What you do know is hes going to make things dicult as youve seen how hes dealt before with others that have crossed him. You feel all alone. Like a prisoner of your own circumstances. Youre worried that nobody will see you and your situation for what it really is. At times, you feel like it will be impossible to ever get out of this unless you leave only with the shirt on your back. But its not going to be that simple, as you need to secure your nancial future. All of this makes you think about whether you should just put your energy into saving the marriage (again). If you identify with this DRAMATIZATION youre likely married to a husband with a personality disorder. Hes probably a Narcissist. If youve never heard this before you should take some time to read up on narcissism. Everything will probably start to make more sense. Try your best to realize that you are not alone. Everyone, including you, deserves to be happy and feel appreciated. And just as you decided to do what ultimately led you to your husband, you can also make the decision to be free of him. While your divorce will likely not be hassle free, there are some basic things you can learn that can minimize your husbands ability to make the divorce process harder than it needs to be.

Boxers, German shepherds and Pembroke Welsh corgis are among more than 100 breeds and mixes that may benefit from two therapies being studied, as well as a diagnostic biomarker test for degenerative myelopathy, a disease of the central nervous system that develops late in life. The condition, which typically affects dogs between 8 and 14 years old, damages the spinal cord, muscles, nerves and brain, causing loss of muscle control, weakness in the hind legs and, eventually, paralysis. Dogs with two copies of a mutation in the gene superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1) are at risk for the disease, but not all dogs with the mutation will develop the disease. Early signs include dragging or shuffling the hind legs. At first, owners may suspect the weakness or lameness is caused by an orthopedic condition or simply advancing age, says Dominik Faissler, DVM, assistant professor of neurology at Tufts Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine in North Grafton, Massachusetts. As the disease progresses, the dog may stumble and fall, have difficulty standing up and lose mobility as the nervous system becomes unable to transmit motor commands between brain and limbs. Gradually, the brain stem becomes affected, causing difficulty swallowing. Paralysis usually occurs in the space of a year. Most dogs are euthanized before they develop difficulty breathing, Dr. Faissler says. Currently, a DNA test developed in 2009 is available to identify the recessive gene mutation that causes the disease, allowing breeders to avoid producing affected dogs, but last years discovery of a diagnostic biomarker can help lead to earlier diagnosis of dogs at risk of developing DM, as its called for short. Its also important for researchers in human medicine who study amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), better known as Lou Gehrigs disease. The same mutation that causes DM in dogs also causes ALS in humans. Finding the biomarker involves collecting cerebrospinal fluid from the affected dog. Thats more difficult and expensive than a blood test because it requires anesthesia, but less expensive than magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Because DM mimics other diseases such as intervertebral disc disease and spinal cancer, an MRI is part of the process to rule out those conditions. Even then, the diagnosis is not considered definitive until the dog dies and a necropsy is performed. As the biomarker test becomes more widely available, it may help to provide earlier and more reliable diagnoses. And earlier diagnosis goes hand in paw with the search for effective therapies. One of the therapies being studied involves injecting antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs) into the spinal fluid with the goal of suppressing production of the mutant protein SOD1. Researchers hope the molecular therapy will be able to sneak past the blood-brain barrier and silence the messenger RNA, slowing or stopping disease progression. Affected dogs who meet certain criteria may be eligible to participate in the study, conducted at the University of Missouri. A gene-silencing study is also under way at Tufts Cummings School. A gene therapy clinical trial, also at the University of Missouri, injects whats called interference RNA (iRNA) into the spinal fluid to repress production of the SOD1 protein. Dogs in the early stages of the disease may also be eligible to participate in that study. Both University of Missouri studies are randomized and double-blinded. That means neither researchers nor owners know which dogs receive the treatment and which receive a placebo. The studys design gives dogs a 67 percent chance of receiving the treatment, according to the universitys website. The treatments have been tested for safety, but their effectiveness isnt yet known. The same therapeutic approach is being studied in humans with SOD1associated ALS. Success in either dogs or humans will likely benefit both. Pets of the Week>> Tilton is a 3-year-old male tabby.

the current population of Lee and Charlotte counties, today: Back then, public pay phones were common, nobody had a smart phone and only some people had mobile phones, those big clunkers they carried in cars. But theyd heard of the thing: the IBM Simon, the first of its prolific kind. Although smart-phone technology had stepped into the world, it was merely a marvel; few in Florida had a smart phone, and none of those phones were very smart anyway, by todays standards, not unless having a calculator on the phone counts (it was a little more than that, actually). Now, say the experts, were roughly in the same position when it comes to Smart Homes. This week, Florida Weekly considers what that might mean for many of us within roughly a single 30-year mortgage cycle, by or before midcentury. And now, with the population of Palm Beach County roughly equal to the population of Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties combined, at 1.4 million, almost every person 14 years or older carries most of the worlds knowledge in his or her palm, in a smart phone. With that phone comes the opportunity to talk and see someone on another continent in real time, or the ability to locate precise positions right down to the square yard, or the capacity to see whos at your front door from 1,000 miles away that is, if you live in a smart house. But most of us dont live in smart houses. Yet. The technology is all here, were all here, but its the interface: How do you make it something intuitive and useful on a daily basis to everybody? Thats the hard part, suggests Jeff Mudgett, a Fort Myers-based architect at Parker-Mudgett-Smith Architects Inc. Steve Jobs made the interface easy (between the technology and the user, or different technologies for the user). Before that, for technically advanced people and people who used it every day, it was fine. But he made it almost flawless, for everybody. Mr. Jobs, who together with Steve Wozniak founded Apple, pioneered such culture-altering devices as the iPod, iPad, and the iPhone. So, with smart homes, its the same thing: its who designs the best interface, Mr. Mudgett added. The technologies are here and have been for a few years. We know about them, just as we once knew about smart cell phones. Some of us 10 to 15 percent, experts estimate currently integrate the new technologies into our home lives, and into the first of the futures smart homes and communities. But sooner rather than later, within a single mortgage cycle of about 30 years, perhaps, the great majority of us will be living in smart homes.The Jetsons visionFor one thing, this means huge business opportunities for those looking at the future. Already a variety of hightech companies are engaged in head-to-head competition to offer devices that make living in your home more like living in a palace with servants to do your every bidding, something most Americans have only ever read about as European or rich-American affectations or maybe theyve seen it on the early 1960s animated show, The Jetsons. The devices are voice activated, and they can be used to work with a wide range of home necessities: power, entertainment, security, food, cleaning, repairing and the like. That means companies building such home apparatus as washing machines or stoves or lighting systems or heat and airconditioning units or robots that do basic house chores, or door locks that recognize and open for one person but not others will compete to make their products compatible; technologys economic chain, with its company alliances and links of profit and convenience, already stretches deeply into the culture. Case in point: the competition between Amazon and Google to provide versatile, adaptive control systems or hubs for home technologies. In 2014 Amazon introduced its Echo speaker, now several iterations on, which works with a product called Amazon Alexa, named for the ancient great library of Alexandria, Egypt, once said to carry all the knowledge humans knew and had written down (it was burned to the ground in 48 B.C., probably by Roman troops operating under Julius Caesar). The Echo advertisement now seems so exciting one wants to rush right out and buy one for about $150, then step into a new world described this way: Echo Plus is a simple way to start your smart home. It has built-in ZigBee smart home hub, which allows for simple and direct setup of compatible ZigBee lights, locks, plugs and in-wall switches from brands like Philips Hue, GE, and Yale. No additional hub required. Echo Plus connects to Alexa a cloud-based voice service to play music, make calls, set timers and music alarms, ask questions, check traffic and weather, and more instantly. The glorious vision goes on, offering luscious detail and concluding with one more thought: Alexa is always getting smarter and adding new features and skills (a skill is similar to a setting on your cell phone). Just ask Alexa to control your TV, request an Uber, order a pizza, and more. Paul Whitelamb, a marketing vice president at a Massachusetts-based company called ClickSoftware the company helps businesses and individuals make decisions about best use of the new technologies offered this note in an online observation to www.futureofeverything. io: Smart homes just got smarter with news that Whirlpools new appliances will be compatible with Amazons Alexa voice assistant. Its hard to imagine, but well soon be asking our washing machine to do the laundry without lifting a finger. Theres huge potential for other industries like traditional service companies (think cable, phone and utilities). You might want to just drop everything and order one (on Amazon, of course). But wait; dont forget Google Home, introduced first in 2016 and with the Google Assistant built in. A reviewer introduced it this way in the British tech-review publication, pocketlint.com: A Wi-Fi speaker that also works as a smart-home control centre (British spelling) and an assistant for the whole family. Even for the British, some of whom are used to butlers and assistants and maids and servants and what-not, this is pretty good. It can playback entertainment throughout your entire home, effortlessly manage everyday tasks, and ask Google things you want to know. So, while youre streaming music from the cloud, you can also set alarms and timers and manage to-do lists and shopping lists support popular network systems to control smart lights, switches, doors, and Google (products). Youll also find yourself booking a car, ordering dinner, or sending flowers to a loved one. You have to find a loved one to send flowers to in the first place, of course, and so far, neither Amazons Echo Plus with Alexa or Google Home with the built-in assistant has offered technology that can do that. But things change quickly.HOUSEFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOS / SHUTTERSTOCK Google Home technology, like most of its competitors, allows voice control of most house functions.VANDY MAJOR / COURTESY PHOTOJetsons-like connectivity will be routine from every public place in the country, and beyond.

Meanwhile, youll be able to do all of the above simply by using your voice. And because its Google, with its 17 years of research and experience, you can ask it any kind of question and probably get an answer: Give me the flight time to Paris, or guide me to the nearest Zabars, (theres only one somewhere on Broadway on the Upper West Side in New York, as you may learn by asking the computer), or give me a current price on a 1965 Corvette Stingray for sale in the Miami area, or even, give me the nearest flower shop so when you find me a loved one, I can be prepared.A bigger pictureIf everybody begins to use these technologies (and they will soon, the forecasters agree) what does that mean for entire communities, and how do developers, architects and engineers plan for a future less predictable but approaching more rapidly, it seems, than any before? Weve been thinking about that for 12 years now, said Syd Kitson, whose company, Kitson & Partners, has required that length of time to develop one of the most high-tech towns in the United States, the 17,000-plus-acre Babcock Ranch in Charlotte County. This month and next residents are moving into the first of what will eventually be 19,000 homes and 6 million square feet of commercial space, all in a town completely powered by solar energy, itself laid out in a configuration that may someday soon be unnecessary (when every house is equipped with advanced roofs that do the job): a 400acre solar field. You try to future-proof these homes, but you cant future-proof everything, he said. Every public space in the town now has Wi-Fi, and will as much of it as anybody needs to accommodate future technologies. We go up to five gigabits. To us that was critical, he noted. But heres something thats going to really change homes: The advent of autonomous vehicles. There will be no garages. Can you imagine that? No need for that part of the house, Mr. Kitson predicted. So, vehicle design affects road and town design which in turn affects smart home design and living. People arent going to own cars. Instead, theyll rely on autonomous transport powered by electricity that hopefully comes from solar energy and storage is the holy grail of this technology. Babcock, he added, is an ideal place to try out the new technologies; after all, its already testing smart cars. So as this relates to the home, having the technology in place so you can grow with it, but thinking about how people are going to live with autonomous vehicles, you wont think about where to park the car. You wont have to waste that space, so youll have a whole different home design, and a town design. You wont have cars on the road, youll have autonomous vehicles. Parking lots can become parks. Even in the way packages are delivered: There wont be delivery people in vans or trucks, people will receive things in a different way. Were thinking about all that now. They had best think fast, but also with a thought for the past and for the pleasures of big fireplaces and high ceilings and quiet porches. We dream of a day when the house senses your body temperature, realizes you may be getting sick, and calls the doctor, said the architect Jeff Mudgett. But he wonders and worries about it about what convenience really offers, what people may really want, and what they can get in 25 or 30 years. Houses are fundamentally a cave with a rock in front of it. I think Roger Waters of (the rock n roll group) Pink Floyd hit it right: Were entertaining ourselves to death. A lot of the technology is fetishistic, a lot of it is entertainment. There are some basic fundamental things being done, though, that arent as exciting. But they may change everything, in ways most techies arent anticipating. In this regard, Mr. Kitson and Mr. Mudgett may agree. I think the most important advance in houses will be getting off the grid we wont need the world-wide grid, thats old fashioned, predicted Mr. Mudgett. As science gets better at creating good passive design, more efficient solar and really, really good batteries, at some point homes and (small communities) are going to become more independent. And that will reduce our energy footprint. Its sustainable. If we cant do that, we arent going to be building any more homes, someday. And when it comes to the home itself one home moving parts will become common future attributes of smart homes in ways weve rarely considered except in Jetson-style fantasy. And paradoxically so will traditional design. The sentimental notion of what a comfortable home is these Rockwellian dining rooms and fireplaces is sometimes at odds with the technology. Living in a home is about where you grew up, how you want to present yourself to your neighbors, what you want to show your children. And moving parts are likely to become much more prominently a part of the moving and changing vision of good living, traditional features and all. If Im living in Los Angeles, Ill want to press a button and open my roof, sometimes. The technology allows it, and I can impress my neighbors. If hes living near the Grand Canyon or on the edge of the Everglades, he may want to move walls or windows to capture different lights and different views in different seasons. Architects have been terrified for years of moving parts, he admits. Something could go wrong and large parts are heavy and hard to move. But thats changing. Technology will easily allow us to move walls or change things. As of now, it can be done only if youre very wealthy. But air conditioning was once like that, too, in Florida. Too big, too cumbersome, too inefficient and too expensive for the average man and woman to afford. But that changed one day abou t 1959 or when it became available and affordable to retirees, and people who worked for living wages, and young families. I had an architecture professor at the University of Florida who was disdainful of the vernacular architecture of Florida: The real vernacular architecture, he claimed, is a window-mounted air conditioner, Mr. Mudgett recalled. It changed the state; it changed the country; it changed everything. And now the new technologies may change everything again. Not may or might, said Mr. Kitson. Will.

Acupuncture for Carpal Tunnel SyndromeQuestion: How can Acupuncture help with my carpal tunnel syndrome? Answer: If you are experiencing tingling in your hands or fingers, pain that radiates from your wrist to your shoulder, or maybe even weakness in your hands that causes difficulty holding small objects, you may have carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). Carpal tunnel syndrome is a disabling condition that affects over 5 million Americans. That is the bad news. But the good news is that acupuncture and herbal formulas accompanied with lifestyle changes can effectively and naturally treat CTS without the effects of harmful medications. Acupuncture can reduce the inflammation of soft tissue, eliminate the pain and strengthen your body. In addition to directly treating CTS, your Acupuncture Physician will create a personalized treatment plan to improve other secondary symptoms that may be associated with CTS, such as headaches, neck and shoulder pain and the emotional stress of living with a disabling condition. Acupuncture offers a safe and natural way to treat CTS with the additional benefit of improved overall health and wellness.

They appreciate your thoughtfulness and you feel good about sharing your time, talents and efforts with loved ones. But there is one gift that is best not given to others, although it is sometimes unwittingly passed along the flu. Influenza, also known as the flu, is a contagious virus that can cause severe illness and even life-threatening complications. Flu viruses can cause high fever, headache, fatigue, dry cough, sore throat, runny nose, and body aches. Complications may include bacterial pneumonia, dehydration, and aggravation of chronic medical conditions, such as congestive heart failure, asthma or diabetes. The flu spreads when an infected person coughs, sneezes or speaks, and the virus goes into the air and other people inhale it. Every year, between 5 percent and 20 percent of Americans get sick from the flu. Most recover in one to two weeks, but approximately 200,000 people end up being hospitalized for flu-related complications. Those most likely to develop flu complications are children between the ages of six months and 19 years of age, adults age 50 and older, women who are pregnant during flu season, individuals living in nursing homes or long-term-care facilities, people with chronic health conditions, health care workers who have direct patient contact and care givers of children less than 6 months old. The best way to prevent passing the flu along to your loved ones and others is to get an annual flu shot. The flu vaccine protects against the three viruses that are expected to be the most common each year and usually becomes available in the fall. It may be given either as a shot or nasal spray, depending on the persons age and any existing health conditions. You also can prevent the spread of the flu by avoiding close contact with people who are sick. If you are the one who is sick, try to keep your distance so others wont get the flu too. You also should stay home, if possible, from work or school. Good health habits are especially important during flu season, which typically lasts from about October through February. Remember to cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, then wash your hands often to protect against germs. Use an alcoholbased sanitizer if soap and water are not available. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth since germs are often spread when you lay a hand on something that is contaminated with the flu virus and then touch yourself. Try to get plenty of sleep, stay active, manage stress, drink plenty of fluids and eat healthy foods so your immune system stays strong. If you end up with the flu, youll receive the care you need as quickly as possible at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center. Youll have access to all the care you need, all in one place. Our emergency team includes emergency specialists, paramedics, medical technicians and specially trained doctors and nurses.

Jason Parsons, Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club general managerWith the unemployment rate continuing to fall, businesses compete for a smaller pool of employees MONEY & INVESTINGBefore you buy AT&T, consider tough market, DOJ scrutinyThe recent Christmas holidays made me reminisce about the first real job I had, working at AT&T in its legal back office during my high school holiday and summer breaks. Although the job was as boring as can be (I sometimes spent an entire eight-hour day photocopying pages of a legal briefing and the next hand stamping reference numbers on the bottom of discovery documents), I made some amazing friends and learned numerous lifelong lessons. Today, the company is very different than the one I started working for in 1991, but it is still one of the largest telecommunication firms in the world. Is it a good stock to own in 2018? Ask anyone who currently owns AT&T why they own it and I will guarantee you will get the same two-word response 99.9 percent of the time the dividend. In todays low interest rate environment, investors are searching for a security that is stable yet produces a decent return. For many, AT&Ts 5.3 percent dividend fits that bill. For decades, the telecommunications company has steadily been increasing its dividend to investors, which is why the company enjoys almost a cult-like following among income investors. But beyond the dividend, things are not looking that rosy, either for investors or the company. First, the company is constantly battling competitors in an ultra-competitive landscape. On the wireless front, it faces firms like Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile. With consumers demanding faster service and more data to do things like stream movies and play video games, these companies are forced to invest in costly equipment and service upgrades which cut into margins. AT&T also competes against firms like Comcast and Dish in providing TV service to its customers. Here the company not only has to often price match these other companies but also deal with cord cutters who are electing to subscribe to services like Netflix or Hulu rather than cable or satellite companies. Second, AT&T is facing a lawsuit from the U.S. Department of Justice to block its proposed purchase of Time ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com
PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 11-17, 2018 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE A17decade, 3.6 percent, a long slide down from the 11-plus percent unemployment that peaked in 2010 after the Recession. The unemployment rate reflects that businesses are growing and hiring Floridians, said Tiffany Vause, a spokesperson for the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. Additionally, as Florida businesses expand, they will still be able to find Floridians to employ as our workforce continues to grow. For some, hiring seasonal foreign workers through the federal governments H-2B program or administering behavioral tests for new hires has helped with staffing challenges. Businesses said they are also responding by offering competitive pay rates, flexible scheduling and employeefriendly work environments. A large percentage of our associates are part time, wrote Brian S. West, a spokesperson for Publix Super Markets, in an email. Many of those are going to school or need a flexible schedule for other reasons, so our numbers are always fluctuating. However, were very proud that in our more than 87 years in business, weve never had a layoff. Finding employees with a strong work ethic that interact well with others, whether at the checkout line or in the deli department, is a challenge in any market and for the chains stores across Florida, he adds. We can teach you the grocery business, but finding someone with a servants heart and great soft skills are the foundation for giving premiere customer service; something our customers expect of Publix associates, Mr. West wrote. A growing economy creates hiring challenges. Were fortunate that many of the great ones looking for jobs want to work at Publix. Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club, whose staff swells to around 400 during peak season, roughly Thanksgiving to April, is nearly always looking for good help, said general manager Jason Parsons. The biggest challenge in finding it? Its really a lack of workers, he said. Its not just in any particular department. We have challenges finding good people in general, so when we do find them, you know, we keep them. Employee turnover is a fact of life for many seasonal businesses, but spending extra time creating a schedule that factors in priorities such as school and family helps mitigate that. Money definitely is important, Mr. Parsons said. (And) that they enjoy their job, feel comfortable with their work, but also have some kind of flexibility with their schedule whether for their school or their family, and our retention is pretty good. This year for its busiest months, the Hotel & Golf Club found an additional 35 people who work in housekeeping, the kitchen and other food and beverage jobs from Jamaica and Mexico using the federal governments H-2B labor program, which allows businesses to hire temporary foreign workers. Thats really, really helped us this year, really helped us, Mr. Parsons said over the phone the Friday before New Years Eve, after the clubs restaurant had been slammed, serving more than 800 people for lunch. Whatever their position, finding employees who work well with others and with guests, particularly on such busy days when tensions can run high, is important. If you can get someone in general thats a positive person and looks to provide that in terms of their service its a good thing for us so we really focus on attitude, he said. At Park Avenue BBQ & Grille, a 30-year-old chain of eight family sitdown restaurants from Boynton Beach to Port St. Lucie, employees know they will always have Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter off, said owner and founder Dean Lavallee. Its latest location opened in December 2017 at The Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens. Offering those major holidays off is one of the ways hes able to keep new hires to a minimum and retain many long-term workers year after year, even in an employees market. Its really a blessing that we have lots of long-term employees, returning employees and we even have generational employees, he said. A behavioral assessment for new employees by The Predictive Index also helps match jobs such as a manager or a server with people whose personalities make them a good fit. The assessment gauges an employees need to be in charge, preference for being around other people in a social setting or not, sense of urgency, and attention to detail or a more big-picture focus. Its not a value judgment, its just who we are, Mr. Lavallee said. At Fishermens Village, a marina, resort and outdoor mall in Punta Gorda with many local retail shops and restaurants, the need for help with about six seasonal positions such as custodians or cart drivers is often filled by the areas senior seasonal residents, said general manager Patti Allen. Fishermens Village is a great place to work and they tend to come back year after year, Ms. Allen said. Whats nice about it is you get to look at the water all day and visit with people who are on vacation. Mom-and-pop shops at Fishville typically look to hire an extra pair of hands or two from about Thanksgiving to Easter, said Fred and Robin Kaske, owners of Laff Out Loud. Posting jobs online, signs on the front door, and word of mouth from current employees help fill those positions. The shop, which since 2000 has offered a fun and whimsical assortment of games, puzzles and pop culture items, typically increases the staff from two employees to three. And those sales personnel pick up some extra hours since the mall stays open an extra two hours, until 8 p.m., from Nov. 24 through April. Some of the seasonal employees over the years have been retirees. People that retire dont always enjoy retirement, so its an opportunity for them to make friends and for them to make a few extra dollars, Mr. Kaske said. Warner. Many analysts believe that A T &T will either have to divest many of Time Warners key assets to make the deal palatable to regulators which will lessen the benefit of the deal or drop the deal altogether. The primary reason AT&T is buying Time Warner is for the media companys huge library of content. If it had to sell of a large chunk of that, it would be negative for the company. But even if the Time Warner deal goes through as planned, analysts have started to worry about AT&Ts increasing debt load. It recently paid $48.5 billion for DirecTV and has offered $85 billion for Time Warner. After this purchase, AT&T is expected to carry debt north of $180 billion. While most analysts still believe that AT&T can easily carry this liability on its balance sheet today, given its strong free cash flows, continued stagnant revenue growth could put pressure on the company in the future. These negatives have put pressure on AT&Ts stock price, even with its growing dividend. While stocks in general had a very positive 2017, the companys stock fell by 12 percent over the last 12 months. Going forward, I would want to wait until AT&Ts battle with the DOJ over Time Warner gets resolved and it can show where income growth will come from, despite the lower cost of the stock. To me, buying a company with a juicy dividend but poor fundamentals is like dating someone who looks good but has a bad personality. He might make you happy in the short run, but in the long run you will end up with nothing but headaches.

A18 WEEK OF JANUARY 11-17, 2018 FLORIDA WEEKLYMOVING ON UP With a 35-year history in the fair business, Rick Vymlatil revels in his role as president and CEO of the South Florida Fair. Ive been able to work in several nice areas in Florida, had the good fortune to manage the Florida State Fair in Tampa for eight years and then come home to Palm Beach County to manage the South Florida Fair, where I began work in this industry in 1982, he said. Along the way, Ive met so many good and dedicated people who enjoy helping to produce the fair in each area where Ive worked. Ive also been able to give back by being involved in our industry trade associations on the state and national levels. One of those groups is the International Association of Fairs and Expositions, a nonprofit corporation, serving state, provincial, regional and county agricultural fairs, shows, exhibitions and expositions. Mr. Vymlatil was recently elected IAFE chairman. (The only other Floridian to hold the position was E. Darwin Fuchs of the Miami-Dade County Youth Fair.) Its been a very good career, said Mr. Vymlatil, who was also manager of the St. Lucie County Fair in Fort Pierce for 2 years. He met his mentor, Buck Christian, while both worked at the YMCA. The two had known each other for about nine years when Mr. Christian called and asked if Id like to come help him with the South Florida Fair, an organization at which he had just become general manager, Mr. Vymlatil said. I said yes and the rest, as they say, is history. I have never looked back. Buck has been a mentor for many years. That one phone call, it changed my life forever. This month Mr. Vymlatil, who has held his current position since 2004, presides over the 2018 South Florida Fair, a 17-day extravaganza with all the goodies fans have come to expect cattle, corndogs, carnival rides, racing pigs, agriculture and entertainment. This years theme, Magical Parades, will have visitors tapping toes and stretching out arms to catch beaded necklaces tossed from floats in true Mardi Gras style. A famous parade from around the globe will be featured each day of the fair, which runs Jan. 12-28. The event drew more than 500,000 people last year. The main purpose of the fair is to showcase agriculture, said Mr. Vymlatil. As South Florida becomes more urban, were very conscious that we need to tell the story of agriculture in Florida history. In the Sundy Feed Store, we have a variety of commodities on display the sugars, of course, and vegetables, after all South Florida is the Winter Vegetable Capital of the World. Its right from the fields to the Green Market. He supervises a staff of 52 full-time employees. Born in Cleveland, Mr. Vymlatil moved to Palm Beach County with his family in 1961. He earned his associate degree from Palm Beach Junior College and a bachelors degree in business management from Wilmington College in 1974. He is a trustee of the Chamber of Commerce of the Palm Beaches and the Central Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce. He also is a board member of the Law Enforcement Assistance Foundation. Mr. Vymlatil and his wife, Denise, live in Tequesta. Rick Vymlatil Where I grew up: Born in Cleveland, and spent first 12 years there. Where I live now: Tequesta Education: Bachelors degree in business management from Wilmington College What brought me to Florida: My parents moved here in 1961. My dad was a contractor and his dad told him this was where the next boom would be. He was right! My first job and what it taught me: I was a stock boy in a small, familyowned toy store. The owners were very attentive to their loyal customers. I suppose the lesson was that customer service is a VERY important aspect of any business dealing with the public. Hobbies: Boating and a little fishing. My new favorite hobby is visiting with our two grandsons, one in Jacksonville and one in Fort Lauderdale. Family time is the best hobby. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: Listen to the veterans in the business. You dont have to do it exactly as they did but their experiences can help you become successful and I suppose that goes for any business in which you become involved. The other advice Id give is be open to different opportunities. Dont become so set in your ways that you close the door on other possibilities. About mentors: Buck Christian provided so many good lessons on management it would be too difficult to single out one particular thing. My other mentor was Darwin Fuchs, who managed the Miami-Dade County Youth Fair for many years. When I became manager of the Florida State Fair, Darwin reached out to me and said that he was an open book anything that I needed he was happy to help out. I definitely took him up on his offer. Hes now retired, as is Buck, and I still contact them on occasion to take advantage of their wisdom. Be open to different opportunities.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 11-17, 2018 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE A19 BEHIND THE WHEELHyundais new Accent is a baby ElantraThere is something alluring about a solid car for OK money. Practicality doesnt get a sexy tagline in commercials, or run the pace car at the Indy 500, but there is bliss in not feeling like you paid too much for features you dont want. Thats the appeal of the redesigned Hyundai Accent. The styling is pleasant, but not revolutionary. The lowest-priced trim starts at $15,880, and it doesnt look bargain basement thanks to a sporty front bumper design and good plastics. At the other end of the spectrum, the nearly $20K Limited model looks loaded with plenty of bright trim, alloy wheels and upgraded LED lights at both ends. Inside is where most Hyundais excel. All new Accents come with a backup camera, power locks and air conditioning. These are features that are standard on most cars today, including low-cost competitors like the Chevrolet Sonic and Ford Fiesta. But the Accent also gets power windows, cruise control, Bluetooth and a touchscreen radio even in the base SE trim. The Toyota Yaris iA is the only compact sedan that can match those kinds of stock equipment levels. Upgrade to a Limited, and it adds some better technology goodies like a larger touchscreen, forward collision warning and Blue Link that can connect with wireless devices to remotely start the car (so its nice and cool when its time to drive.) Our test car was a Limited model, and it felt loaded, which is a good thing, because a much larger world of alternatives opens up when approaching $20K. Out on the road, the Accent feels like a solid everyday sedan. Thats giving it good praise. Because lower-priced vehicles dont always feel substantial. The Accent weighs in at the middle of its compact sedan competition, and so it doesnt get blown around on the highway like some others can. Plus, its 1.6-liter motors 130 horsepower is one of the highest rated in its class. The new Accent will never be considered a sports car, but people who are shopping around will appreciate how substantial it feels. What may be the most noteworthy feature of the Accent is how close it is to its larger sibling, the Elantra. About eight inches in length and less than five inches in wheelbase separate the two sedans. They have a similar sporty silhouette with a well-creased hood, bubble-top profile, and a short rear deck. Inside, the steering wheel and dash layout share many of the same components. To be fair, the Accent and Elantra have always been close siblings. But with the 2018 redesign, the Accent enters new territory as it is brought up to the impressive standard features level that the Elantra redesign achieved over a year ago. Its not a bad thing when the Elantra and Accent dont have fully distinct identities. These are not sports cars with a fanatical following like the Porsche 911 or Ford Mustang. These are commuter machines that need to be the ideal fit for a diverse crowd, and so maybe a one-two punch is the right approach. Hyundai has spent a lot of time making sure everyone believes each dealership is located at the corner of Low-cost Avenue and Value Boulevard. And this duo allows them to dial in a buyers needs more precisely. A customer who is continuously looking for a way to take the price down of an Elantra might be steered to looking at a lower-cost Accent. And someone who is loading up an Accent Limited might be intrigued by the upper-class features (cooled seats, radar cruise control, etc.) in the Elantra. This is proper dealer-level strategy. It doesnt make for the sexiest advertisements. But for consumers, it means a visit to the Hyundai lot can be a much more tailored experience. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com earlSTEWARTearls@estoyota.com EARL ON CARSShould I pay cash for my next car or finance it?Most people dont have any choice except to finance their cars. However, if you are reading this, the chances are you are in that fortunate higher demographic income group, and can afford to pay cash for your next car. People who read newspaper columns and blogs tend to be more intelligent and affluent. But, just because you can, is it the right move? Many people think they can get a better deal on a car if they pay cash. This was true 50 years ago before dealers discovered the new profit center referred to as the finance and insurance department. Today this is not true. In fact, paying cash may even make the actual vehicle cost you more! The reason for this is that car dealers make money when they handle the financing with the bank or with the manufacturers lenders like Ally, Honda Finance or Chrysler Credit. A dealer typically averages about $4,000 on every car for which he handles the financing. Therefore, if the dealers minimum acceptable profit on the cars markup was $1,000, he may sell it to someone who he could make $4,000 finance profit on for less than someone who he knew was a cash buyer. Dealers will sometimes sell a car for zero profit or even lose money on the car because they can make a good profit on the financing. If you plan on paying cash for your next car, my recommendation is DO NOT TELL THE CAR DEALER THIS. Tell the car dealer that you are considering financing with him. This will help you get a lower price because the dealer still has hope that he can make money when he finances your car. The average profit a car dealer makes financing cars is much larger than he makes marking up the selling price. My second recommendation is check interest rates and terms with your own bank or credit union before you talk to the car dealers finance people. The finance manager (aka business manager) is on commission and paid a generous percentage of the profit he makes by marking up the banks interest rates and selling you extra products like extended warranties, GAP insurance and car maintenance. One argument in favor of financing a car is being able to keep your money invested, and earning a greater return than your interest cost of financing. There has never been a time in our history that this is true. The bad news is that interest rates are not only at historical lows for borrowing but also for CDs and interest income. With very good credit, you can finance a new car today for between 2 percent and 3 percent, but you cant find a short federally insured CD for that amount. However, you can find very secure equity and bond investments that will earn considerably more than your cost of interest on financing a car. There is one very important intangible reason why some people should pay cash for their car. That intangible is called peace of mind. My older brother, Doug, grew up during the Great Depression. When he built his new house, he paid cash for it. I couldnt believe this and was severely critical of him. It was entirely illogical for him to pay cash when he could get a very low interest rate and home mortgage interest is tax deductible. His investments earned him far more than the interest rate on his mortgage would cost. After a while I finally realized why Doug was right and I was wrong. He paid cash for his home because it made him feel better. Growing up in the 1930s, like many of my customers did, made an indelible impression on his emotions. Owning his home with no debt made him feel happy and secure, and what could be more important than that?

A trio of trios coming up at the Flagler Museum BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@ oridaweekly.comThe best bet for great music in an iconic setting is at the Flagler Museum in Palm Beach over the next several weeks. The museums popular winter Music Series will feature a trio of trios in the coming weeks and your toughest decision might be deciding which trio to see. Its no surprise Henry Flagler left a musical legacy. The Flagler home if you can even call Whitehall a home was frequently filled with music. Flagler and his wife hosted performances in the specially designed music room, and Flaglers granddaughter, Jean Flagler Matthews, who founded the museum, also directed the restoration of the museums 1,249-pipe J.H. & C.S. Odell & Co. organ. Another granddaughter, Mary Flagler Cary, collected original music manuscripts that are now part of the Morgan Library. That musical tradition continues with a parade of musicians performing music composed before 1930, on tap each January through March. There are champagne receptions following each concert during which attendees can meet the artists. First up, is the Hermitage Piano Trio on Jan. 23. Featuring three young performers equally comfortable as soloists, the Hermitage Piano Trio was lauded by The Washington Post for having turned in a performance of such power and sweeping passion that it left you nearly out of breath. The trio features Misha Keylin (violin), Sergey Antonov (cello) and Ilya Kazantsev (piano). Next on the bill is the Primo Trio, which performs Feb. 6. Boris Allakhverdyan (clarinet), Gulia Gurevich (violin), and Anastasia Dedik (piano) were studying at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio when they founded the group almost 15 years ago. They won the 2007 Fischoff Chamber Music Competition and never looked back, touring extensively in the States and Europe. They have recorded one album and are at work on a second. The third in this hat trick of classical treasures is the Boston Trio. Experienced performers who have had successful careers as soloists and chamber musicians, violinist Irina Muresanu, cellist Jonah Ellsworth, and pianist HengJin Park, joined together as the Boston Trio nearly 20 years ago.

Ephraim Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival where, between Jan. 18 and Feb. 11, youll discover a host of handpicked movies guaranteed to offer unique insights into the human condition. This year the festival, now in its 28th year, will bookend two movies featuring the Jewish influence on our music around a treasure trove of Jewishthemed cinematic jewels contributed by filmmakers the world over, according to Festival Director Ellen Wedner. These two films arent musicals, but they are about music, Ms. Wedner said. And specifically the Great American Songbook. Were opening with Body and Soul: An American Bridge and closing with Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas. The song Body and Soul, she explained, is one of the most often played jazz standards. The film focuses on the early performance history and cross-cultural impact of the song by Jewish composer Johnny Green, which was made famous by jazz legend Louis Armstrong. The American Bridge referred to in the title is the one that connects the Jewish and African-American communities, Ms. Wedner said. I think this is a lovely way to open the festival. It talks about building bridges of understanding through music, a universal language. Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas, by contrast, focuses on Jewish composers who penned many yuletide classics.

In the world of the Victorian ideal, they were chubby and smiling, with curly locks of hair, and nary a care in the world. That was the ideal in illustrations by Kate Greenaway, Lewis Carroll and others. Reality was something far different. Just look at the family of my fathers maternal grandmother, Lilla Chason Griffin. Her mother, Elizabeth Jane Chason, was born in July 1858. She was only 18 when she gave birth to her first child, Hannah Leola, in February 1877. And Elizabeth was only 19 when she buried Hannah Leola the following February, shortly after the childs first birthday. Her third child, Nora Jane, born Dec. 12, 1880, survived only 15 days. And so it went in 19th century South Georgia and North Florida. Elizabeth bore 15 children; seven never survived to adulthood. The family Bible is matter of fact about the rest of them, most of whom died at birth: Girl Baby born Dead December 22, 1886; Boy Baby born Dead January 27, 1894; Twin Boy and Girl born Dead Dec 28, 1894. And poor Lula May, born Nov. 27, 1890, was just over 10 years old when she died in January 1901. She died the day after her maternal grandmother had succumbed to something probably flu. The siblings who survived to adulthood were of a heartier stock most lived well past 80. Grannys twin sister, Lizzie, died at 87 in 1975. Granny lived to be just shy of 101, dying in 1988, and she was just as matter of fact as those Bible entries, calling things as she saw them. I remember her thoughts in the 1980s on that new disease AID (she was blind by this point and hard of hearing). The disease, dont you know, was caused by committing blasphemy Found: Deja New Gallery, 212 U.S. 1, North Palm Beach; 561-844-1151. Paid: $5 The Skinny: Before the Industrial Revolution, only the wealthiest of consumers could afford nice things. By the middle of the 19th century, a burgeoning middle class in the United States had a growing demand for consumer goods. New production processes, including the electroplating of silver, meant that inexpensive base metals easily could be coated with a thin layer of silver to lend sparkle to the gasand candle-lit homes of the masses. Factories in Meriden, Connecticut, turned out hundreds of thousands of decorative objects, including pieces like this toothpick holder. The city was known for its silver manufacturers it was home to Rogers, International and others. I have not polished it yet it would have been shiny when new, but I actually like the patina of the tarnish on the silver that was applied to the base metal. THE FIND:A Meriden silver plate figural toothpick holder(pronounced blas-pho-mee, with an emphasis on the second syllable). She clearly came from a different world, and seeing those Bible entries long after her death certainly gives context to some of her harshness.

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 11-17, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYsergeant in The Deuce, a homicide detective in The Blacklist, an NSA agent in The Good Wife, and a defense attorney in Law & Order: SVU. Most famously, he played another D.A., the unctuous Maury Levy, in 25 episodes of The Wire, HBOs sprawling saga of Baltimores drug scene. But its another made-in-Baltimore story that Mr. Kostroff is currently trying on for (plus) size: the Maltz Jupiter Theatres production of Hairspray, the ebullient musical based on the John Waters cult film. In his South Florida regional theater debut, the TV tough guy will tone down the grit and amp up the camp as Edna Turnblad, the well-fed matriarch of the shows family of progressive strivers. Mr. Kostroff will don a fat suit for the role, and he expects to spend 90 minutes before every show in hair and makeup. Ive been really lucky in my career in terms of variety, because I do both musical theatre and this really intense TV drama, Mr. Kostroff says. But its my first time playing a woman, so its certainly different. Edna Turnblad has always been played by a man, going back to drag queen Divines pioneering performance in the 1988 movie. John Travolta played her in the 2007 musical film adaptation, and Harvey Fierstein bent genders in the 2002 Broadway debut and the 2017 live television production. I think Im most inspired by Harveys performance, because thats the one I saw live, Mr. Kostroff says. It is intimidating to follow in the footsteps of not only these gentlemen but several lesser-known regional actors who have done the part numerous times. Its a daunting task. Im not going to pretend that it isnt. Mr. Kostroff expects a big laugh when Edna first appears onstage, iron in hand and hair unkempt. But he hopes her humanity and pathos will evolve throughout the show. In spite of the fact that its always funny to have a man in a dress, I take it pretty seriously, he adds. Shes not a drag queen; shes a mother. Underneath this fun, fluffy show are some legitimate ideas and issues. Its about self-acceptance. Its about racial issues. If I do my job right, theyll start to accept her as a real person. This seems to be the consensus among the cast and crew of the Maltzs Hairspray. The actors and directors I interviewed all cited the shows sociopolitical conscience as a key element of its lasting power. The show is set in 1962 Baltimore, in the waning years of Jim Crow, where Ednas talented teenage daughter Tracy, armed with big dreams and bigger hair, auditions for her favorite (segregated) TV talent show. After being voted down because of her weight, Tracy finds common cause with Little Inez, another star-inthe-making rejected because of her skin color. Thus, a crusade for civil rights begins to stir in the background of this otherwise sunny musical romance, with its sprightly Marc Shaiman songs and motley period ambience. (In his original review for The New York Times, Ben Brantley called Hairspray as sweet as a show can be without promoting tooth decay.) One of my problems with this musical is that in a lot of [productions], it just skates the surface, says Mary DiGangi, who plays Tracy. This show really has a lot to say. Its very powerful. Its so uniting and so well written, but when the director doesnt take it there, its a happy-go-lucky show. You should go, wow, this is so incredibly meaningful and deep. I need to reflect and think about this. Thats something Bill [Fennelly, director of the Maltz production] brings to the table so beautifully. Ms. DiGangi is equipped to parse the differences between Hairsprays this will be her third time embodying Tracy. She believes each performance subtly builds on her previous ones, and each draws on her own biography. She remembers being so desperate to play Tracy, to completely inhabit that role and articulate the teenage angst that was going on inside of me. [Tracy] is so many little girls, she adds. Its incredibly fulfilling and rewarding to play, because real life sometimes imitates art, but it doesnt always work out like a fairy tale. And in this piece it does, especially for Tracy. Its one of the biggest stories of my life to play this girl. Shes such a vibrant light that radiates such joy and pure energy, and it touches every single character in the show. For his part, Bill Fennelly is aware of the needles the show needs to thread between its lacquered sheen and its impactful underbelly; between kitsch and realism and part of his directorial responsibility is to manage that balance. Sometimes the stakes and the circumstances are deeply rooted in very real things, and sometimes there are moments of camp John Waters humor and camp musical-theatre humor, he says. Hairspray is a delightful journey, because its a very well balanced meal. It is so transformative, it is so inclusive and joyous its like a big joy love bomb. Mr. Kostroff concurs. This is one of the best-written and best constructed musicals out there. I call it kryptonite its irresistible. an oxymoron, Ms. Wedner laughed. But so many Jewish songwriters really created what we know as secular Christmas tunes. Jewish composers such as Irving Berlin (Im Dreaming of a White Christmas), Mel Torme (The Christmas Song), Jay Livingston (Silver Bells) and Johnny Marks (Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer) wrote some of our most memorable Christmas songs. And what better place to set that film than in a Chinese restaurant? Well, thats where it takes place! So we have lots of music in both of these films. I think theyll be irreverent and fun a great way to start and close the festival. Ms. Wedner said this years festival will offer 35 films five more than last year via 86 screenings, 20 more than last year. Theres a great desire, certainly within this community, to connect with film that has some Jewish content, Ms. Wedner said. This year weve expanded even further by adding theaters, so were having an even greater number of screenings. Were also adding a new satellite festival in Jupiter in April. Were really trying to reach people where they live. She stressed that filmgoers need not be Jewish to appreciate the lineup. I think theres a little something here for everybody, she said. If you like music, you have our opening and closing films. If you like documentaries, we have some really superior ones this year on Sammy Davis, Jr., Itzhak Perlman and Hedy Lamarr. If you want to enjoy a thriller, weve got great ones, like Shelter, a suspenseful neo-noir. Interested in history? How about The Pulitzer at 100, which celebrates the centenary of this national award for excellence while being interwoven with the history of Joseph Pulitzer himself. Like foreign films? Pick a country, ranging from Japan, Hungary, Italy, Israel and Germany to France, Australia, Russia, South Africa and Canada. Ms. Wedner added the festival even has something for Bollywood fans. Its called Shalom Bollywood, she said. Its a really great documentary about women in the 1930s and 1940s who were the biggest stars in Bollywood cinema. And they were all Jewish! Why? Because it was taboo for Hindu and Islamic women to perform on screen. Who knew? This film focuses on the lives of five of those great Jewish actors. The festival selection process begins the previous April as a committee sets itself to the task of screening a multitude of entries. We rate them independently on how much we like them and which ones best fit our format, she said. Then when I put the schedule together I try and put together the right mix. We strive to have a little something for everyone. And weve outdone ourselves this year. I know our audiences are going to have an engaging and truly enriching experience. So come already.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JANUARY 11-17, 2018 B5 PUZZLE ANSWERS Photographer opens his drawers for show Fine art photographer Barry Seidman will present the most personal aspects of his life in photography in the exhibition My Drawers Series at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. A reception will be held 3-5 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 13. As this series came to fruition, I realized how biographical it became, said Mr. Seidman, a Palm Beach Gardens resident. It is an examination of my life as much as any written word; its a self-portrait. The series takes the viewer on a personal journey through Mr. Seidmans life, with large-scale images of his personal storage spaces, including drawers in his kitchen, in a night table, roll-top desk and bathroom. One photograph, Kitchen Drawer, includes the expected flashlight, tape measure, keys, compass and functional items. With further examination, however, it shows awards for service in the military, military patches and dog tags, old I.D. cards, a skate key, a vintage Boy Scout knife and other treasures from the past. The photographs tell the story of a life. As the viewer goes from one item to the other in magnified detail, he or she begins to understand the artist and what he cares about. Recognized as one of the top still-life photographers in the country, Mr. Seidman continues to exhibit his fine art photography in one-man fine art shows in New York City and South Florida. The Cultural Council is at 601 Lake Ave., in Lake Worth. The show runs Jan. 13-Feb. 10. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information about the exhibit, call 561471-2901.

The talk is in conjunction with the exhibit, Miss Lucys 3-Day Dollhouse Party, on display through Feb. 4. Ms. OBrien lives in Delrays artsy Pineapple Gr ove, where shes been making miniature houses and accessories for about 16 years. Her houses are built to scale, where (usually) one inch equals one foot and she loves to make the houses look as realistic as possible. Though shes built houses from kits in the past, she can plan and build just about anything to spec now and she enjoys making authentic replicas of peoples beloved childhood homes. Lorraine Hellers tiny recreations are coveted for their details and are widely available online. She and OBrien will share their philosophy about making miniatures. Theyll display examples of their work.

B10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 11-17, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY Palm Beach Israeli Film Series gets underwayDays before the Donald M. Ephraim Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival opens, another festival launches its ninth season. The 2018 Palm Beach Israeli Film Series kicks off Jan. 14 with The Cousin, a dramedy about good intentions being tested. The Cousin, will screen at 4 p.m. Jan. 14 at Temple Beth El, 2815 N. Flagler Drive, West Palm Beach, and at 1:30 p.m. Jan. 15 at the Weisman Delray Community Center, 7091 W. Atlantic Ave., Delray Beach. The cost is $12 per showing at Temple Beth El and $9 per showing at the Weisman Delray Community Center. The season will offer four consecutive monthly showings of newly released Israeli films at both venues. The films will be shown at Temple Beth El on the second Sunday of each month at 4 p.m. and at the Weisman Delray Community Center on the second Monday of each month at 1:30 p.m. In The Cousin, an open-minded TV producer begins to question his liberal convictions when a Palestinian laborer he hired is suspected of a crime. Community and family tensions escalate in this message-driven wry comedy that keeps you guessing until the end. The rest of the season will feature: Holy Air, Feb. 11 and 12; Your Honor, March 11 and 12; and An Israeli Love Story, April 8 and 9. Starting our ninth series is very exciting, said Ilan Kottler, founder and producer. We are able to continue the series, because there are so many great movies coming out of Israel every year. We will never run out of great content to share with our audience. Mr. Kottler started the series at Temple Beth El nine years ago as an Israeli dinner and movie night. There have been changes along the way, which included eliminating the dinner and focusing on the movie. Five years ago, the series expanded to include Delray Beach. Two of the films The Cousin and Your Honor are Florida premieres, said Karen Davis, artistic director. Through screening the best of Israeli cinema, we want to connect U.S. audiences Jews and non-Jews to Israel, said Ms. Davis, who once ran the Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival. To paraphrase an old Levy's rye bread advertisement, 'You don't have to be Jewish to love Israeli films; you just have to love good films!"

YesSteven Spielberg, Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks. A prime awards season release date. Subject matter taken from history that feels notably current. Theres no doubt 20th Century Fox hopes The Post leads to one thing: Oscars. Although nominations are a possibility given the names involved, accolades will stop there. The film is a solid drama that tells a good story and is by no means a disappointment. It starts a bit sluggish but picks up before finishing strong. Its just not going to make you say, Wow. They cant all be Oscar winners, right? Liz Hannah and Josh Singers script begins in Vietnam, 1966. Military analyst Daniel Ellsberg (Matthew Rhys) is there to observe at the behest of Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara (Bruce Greenwood), and things arent going well. He tells McNamara this, and McNamara agrees. Yet when they get off the plane in the U.S., McNamara tells the press things are going better than expected and says hes optimistic about the progress being made. The lies! What the American people did not know at the time, but would soon, is that McNamara commissioned Ellsberg and others to chronicle the United States involvement in Vietnam in what would become known as the Pentagon Papers. The leaking of the top-secret papers in the early 1970s, specifically how and when they were revealed to the public, is the subject of The Post. Streep plays Katherine Graham, owner and publisher of The Washington Post newspaper. Hanks is Ben Bradlee, the papers executive editor. They dont always see eye to eye, and they dont have to they share mutual respect and trust the other always has the papers best interests at heart. The New York Times gets the Pentagon Papers first, publishes an article on them and is quickly court-ordered to stop, which is viewed as government censorship. The Washington Post gets the Papers shortly thereafter, and in the midst of trying to sell the company Graham is faced with an unthinkable dilemma: Risk everything and protect freedom of the press by publishing articles based on the papers, or allow the government to restrict what the newspaper can publish, which is a violation of the First Amendment. Its a heck of a question: Should freedom of the press take precedent over government security? On one hand, the First Amendment allows the press to work for the governed, not the governors, and to hold said governors accountable. On the other hand, sharing top-secret government information is treasonous and punishable by law. Where, how and when the line should be drawn between the two is imminently debatable, and makes up the thoughtful heart of the film. Some might consider The Post liberal propaganda from noted Democrats Spielberg, Streep and Hanks. Theres no denying that it showcases the virtues of a free press, meaning the message to todays audience is that a free press is valuable and the action of a politician proclaiming fake news should not occur. Make of that what you will. Politics aside, though, The Post is a finely acted movie that gets better as it goes and tells a compelling story. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> The Post began principal photography in May 2017 and the nal cut was nished in November, which is extremely fast. This couldnt wait, Director Steven Spielberg said. (We had to) tell this story today.Did you know? Downsizing (Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig, Christoph Waltz) With the promise of a better life, Paul (Damon) and his wife Audrey (Wiig) agree to shrink themselves and live out their days in a micro-community. It doesnt go as planned, of course and worse, the film goes in unexpected directions that dont work. A definite disappointment from writer/director Alexander Payne. Rated R.Darkest Hour 1/2(Gary Oldman, Ben Mendelsohn, Lily James) Gary Oldman is tremendous as Winston Churchill in the first month of his run as prime minister in May 1940. Churchill deals with the escalating war in Europe and turmoil within his own party in this fascinating look at the complexity of power and war. Rated PG-13.Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell) Frustrated that the town police chief (Harrelson) has made little progress in solving her daughters murder, fiery Mildred (McDormand) pays for strong words o n three billboards to move the investigation along. The performances and script are tremendous, and best of all, the film has real personality. Its a sure Oscar contender. Rated R. FILM CAPSULES

Weve all encountered Chianti on the wine list, and probably Brunello and Barolo, too. But even though Italian wines are wildly popular in the U.S., and even though weve all quaffed a carafe of Sangiovese at one time or another, theres so much more to enjoy. Lets go a bit off the well-worn track, away from the Chianti region, away from Piedmont, and see where it takes us. First stop the Marches. This area is just west of the port of Ancona, on Italys east coast about 230 miles south of Venice. The most famous wine of the region is Verdicchio, a white wine with a lemony flavor profile and zippy acidity. An extremely ancient varietal, it is mentioned in Roman writing as far back as 400 A.D. Aside from being a great pairing with seafood, youve probably seen the famous bottle, which is made in the shape of a fish. Fun stuff. Inzolia is a golden white wine grown in Sutera, on the south coast of Sicily. It has honey and melon aromas, and often contains flavors of bitter orange and grapefruit. Many times, its left to oxidize, when it gains a deep golden color and nutlike qualities. Interesting, and worth the search. In Umbria, the wine to look for is Sagrantino di Montefalco. The area borders Tuscany and the Marches, but the main varietal is the Sagrantino grape. Its deeply colored and quite tannic, so its often blended with Merlot, which makes it a bit softer. Since it contains a high proportion of tannin, it ages well, and winemakers often leave it in oak barrels for over two years. Flavors include black cherries, ripe blackberry, and some spice and earth. Since it is so highly structured, it pairs especially well with steak, truffle dishes, venison, hard cheese, and even wild boar. While you might not go out of your way to find wines from Sardinia, you probably should. This island is the second largest in the Mediterranean, off the west coast of Italy, just south of Corsica. Here, they make a killer Grenache, which they call Cannonau. Its a bit rustic, so it pairs well with strongly flavored red sauces and spicy pasta dishes, but the flavors of ripe plums, blackberries, and violets, accented by a slight bitterness on the finish, make it a great food wine. Theres so much more to enjoy with Italian wines, so make it a goal to explore some of the less familiar areas. Meanwhile, here are some other Italian recommendations. Citra Caroso Montepulciano dAbruzzo Riserva 2010 ($22) Its easy to get confused between Montepulciano, which is the name of a grape, and Vino Nobile from the district of Montpulciano. Hint: look for the word Abruzzo. The almost-black color in the glass promises a fullbodied experience, with flavors of raisins, licorice and complex fruit. According to the tasting notes that accompanied this sample, the flavors are elegante e potente, because the whole thing was in Italian. Enjoy this wine with food, and decant it first. WW 92. Frescobaldi Nipozzano Vecchie Viti Chianti Rufina Riserva 2012 ($27) This classic blend from the Rufina area of Tuscany follows the traditional recipe of Sangiovese, with a percentage of Colorino, Malvasia Nera, and Canaiolo. A nose of warm earth, tobacco, and a burst of dark fruit is followed by a medium-bodied mouthfeel, and a mix of dark plum and cherry and soft tannins. This is a very typical true to type Chianti. As a Riserva, it was aged for 24 months in oak and an additional three months in the bottle before release. WW 88. Tenuta Valleselle Aureum Acinum Amarone della Valpolicella 2012 ($40) This traditional blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes is on the sweet side, which we expect from an Amarone, with heady flavors of smoke, raisins and dried black cherries. Try it with more aromatic cheeses such as French Camembert, and other stronglyflavored foods. WW 91-92.Ask the Wine WhispererQ. Is there something interesting I can do with empty wine bottles? Rick S., MiamiA. Lots of things. Try turning them into a lamp, which can be a perfect accent to your man (or woman) cave. Youll need a few simple tools and a DIY lamp kit, which is very easy to find online. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

They are served cold with sweet onions, avocado and radish atop a bed of lettuce. The Old Bay doesnt overpower the sweet, tender shrimp.

Jan Norris FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE janNORRISjan@jannorris.com Parched Pig gets RAW, classic Prezzo reborn in BocaAny chance you remember the Golden Age of Wrestling the 1980s? If you do, and can dress up like one of the superstars (OK, well help: Hulk Hogan, Macho Man Randy Savage, Bret Hart, Andre the Giant, Dusty Rhodes, Rowdy Roddy Piper, The Ultimate Warrior), you can throw down all the oysters you can eat all night long for free. Thats at The Parched Pig, where every Monday night is RAW night and plays off the RAW Wrestlemania of the s that P. Pig owner Tim Lipman remembers. Monday Night Raw adds to the originality that The Parched Pig is all about, and allows us to tap into a nostalgic sport that many of our customers grew up with, he said. To seal the free oysters deal, you must wear a costume, not a T-shirt, to resemble one of the wrestlers of that era. The rule is one win per customer per month. Those who prefer to come as a fan still get a deal on the bivalves, with a buck a shuck happening all night on Mondays. Charcuterie and other sharable plates are available off the menu at this Palm Beach Gardens beer and wine bar that serves as a waiting room for the busy Coolinary Caf a few doors down. Say Happy 1st anniversary to the staff: It opened a year ago this week. The Parched Pig, Donald Ross Village, 4580 Donald Ross Road, Suite 100, Palm Beach Gardens. Phone 561-360-3063 or www.facebook.com/theparchedpig/.The rebirth of PrezzoA long-awaited, and we do mean long, restaurant has opened in Boca Raton. The return of Prezzo has the countys longtime food lovers buzzing. The original, created by the all-star restaurant duo Burt Rapoport and Dennis Max, opened in 1989, bringing to South Florida the first wood-fired oven, and producing the areas first look at the new craze of thin-crust pizzas, foccacia and a luscious wood-oven baked apple tart that diners made a special trip for. It was a phenomenon at the time and, along with a handful of others, would shake the dining scene out of a continental menu funk and bring the chef-driven restaurant to the fore. Mr. Rapoports updated reincarnation is a 4,300-square-foot casual spot, with an open kitchen and inside-outside bar. Chef Mark Militello, one of Dennis Maxs early chefs and a James Beard Award winner, heads the kitchen. Im amazed at how many people have come out in our first weeks. Their anticipation has been overwhelming, Mr. Rapoport said. Roasted garlic in olive oil, and the foccacia breadsticks are still offered to each guest. All of them say yes, he said. The best sellers are the original Prezzo fusilli with chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts and goat cheese; and the chefs own chicken Parmesan. Its amazing, Mr. Rapoport said. Mark takes every dish personally. He puts his heart and soul into all his food. Its old school to todays food-savvy diners, but the restaurant still resonates, he said. The world has changed a lot since then. Back then, we were a really on our own, a unique concept. There are plenty of places that are doing what were doing now. But I think people still certainly appreciate the menu, the quality of the food, and the friendliness of the staff. Thats crucial its a part of my culture. Hes still trying to recruit those special staff members who want to treat the guest the way they want to be treated, not just take orders. Dennis Max has worked with him to offer the modern design, and put his touches on the menu and hand-chosen wine list. Arturo Sighinolfi, who was sommelier at Mr. Maxs Maxaluna, is bar manager and mixologist. Are more Prezzos to come? I always thought it was a concept that would work well elsewhere, Mr. Rapoport said. But I want to tweak some things here first. Prezzo, 5560 N. Military Trail, Boca Raton. Phone 561-314-6840 or www. prezzoboca.com.In briefTwo new restaurants open in the north end in the next two weeks. Julien Gremauds second Avocado Grill opens in Downtown at the Gardens. The farmfresh, vegetable-centric grill has been a solid hit in downtown West Palm Beach, and the chef/partner expects to make the magic happen twice here Its in the old RA Sushi space behind The Yard House. 1000 North is a new waterfront restaurant and club going into a long-ago Chuck Muer spot on the west side of the Jupiter Inlet bridge off State Road A1A. Modern American regional cuisine is on the menu, and it boasts an unrivaled wine list along with handcrafted cocktails. Its draw will be the view of the lighthouse and inlet from the dining room. The Club Lounge, on the second floor, belongs to members who will get concierge dining services, a private dining room, a chefs table and dock privileges. Membership is by invitation only. More on both to come. LIPMAN RAPOPORT GREMAUD

But then you remember how he constantly puts you down in front of your family. How he belittles you and questions your intelligence. And how he constantly controls you, manipulates you, and prevents you from having normal relationships with friends and loved ones. Youre not a greedy person. All you want is to be happy, and feel appreciated in your life, and in your marriage. But you know deep down that this is never going to get better. Your husband is not changing. In fact, hes just getting worse. Divorce is something you never thought youd ever experience, but you know you must leave the marriage if youre ever going to have a chance at happiness. And you know nows the time. Your children have grown into adults and youre not getting any younger. But at the same time youre worried. You dont know where to start, or how all this needs to happen. What you do know is hes going to make things dicult as youve seen how hes dealt before with others that have crossed him. You feel all alone. Like a prisoner of your own circumstances. Youre worried that nobody will see you and your situation for what it really is. At times, you feel like it will be impossible to ever get out of this unless you leave only with the shirt on your back. But its not going to be that simple, as you need to secure your nancial future. All of this makes you think about whether you should just put your energy into saving the marriage (again). If you identify with this DRAMATIZATION youre likely married to a husband with a personality disorder. Hes probably a Narcissist. If youve never heard this before you should take some time to read up on narcissism. Everything will probably start to make more sense. Try your best to realize that you are not alone. Everyone, including you, deserves to be happy and feel appreciated. And just as you decided to do what ultimately led you to your husband, you can also make the decision to be free of him. While your divorce will likely not be hassle free, there are some basic things you can learn that can minimize your husbands ability to make the divorce process harder than it needs to be.
