This year, sales of the eight varieties of cookies run Jan. 18-Feb. 11. Such favorites as Thin Mints and peanutbuttery Tagalogs and Do-Si-Dos will return, as well as Trefoils, co conutty Samoas, lemony Savannah Smiles, gluten-free Toffee-Tastic and the campfire-inspired Smores. Once again, the local council will participate in Cookies for the Military, in which customers can buy cookies by the case ($48) or by the box ($4) to be shipped to service women and men. Purchases can be made at any cookie booth or online, at www.cookiesforthemilitary.org. Heres a little food for thought, courtesy of the Girl Scouts: In 2017, local Scouts sold 1,585,655 boxes of cookies, the most ever by the area council. That was up 3.2 percent over 2016. The top seller sold 4,603 boxes; she sold 19,807 boxes over four years. Thats well above the per-girl average of 219 boxes, which was a 2.8 percent increase over 2016. Heres something else: A $4 box of cookies costs the Girl Scouts $1.04, leaving $2.96 for the organization. After other expenses, $2.53 per box goes directly to the girls, scouting officials say. For more information on this years cookie sale, or to find the nearest cookie booth, call 561-427-0177 or visit www.gssef.org. Watch your waist!

CaplanNextera Energy, Inc., Parent Company of Florida Power & Light Company COMMENTARYDonald Trumps mirrorDonald Trump has provided a significant gift to the American people, and I for one am deeply grateful. The Trump administration the Trump adventure is a finely polished mirror, a mirror somehow guileless and incapable of flattery. We Americans love flattery. We love the mirrors that tell us were the greatest, the most generous, the most ruggedly individual. That we were born with equal rights, we ended slavery in a violent war, we settled the West, we survived a terrible depression, we won World Wars I and II, we put the official stamp on civil rights, we saved Europe and we saved the world. We like to glance in a mirror that tells us: Hard work means success regardless of race, religion, background or (more recently) sexual orientation. But that flattering picture is the image of the trick mirror. It isnt true, and not because it isnt the case. On the contrary, it is the case, more or less. Whats true, however, is different; the truth is nuanced and significantly thornier. We are or we can be all those things we prefer to see in the American trick mirror. And we can even claim we rejected racism and sexism by electing the first black president and in the popular vote, at least the first woman president in the history of the United States, in 2008 and 2016. Didnt we? Well, almost. Lets call her the ghost president. Those are facts. But in the last 18 months and thanks to Mr. Trump, Americans have been better able to see the truth about themselves, and not just our favorite facts. In the long run that can only bode well. Better to know than not know. The truth became evident again last week when Mr. Trump questioned the need to welcome any immigrants from shithole countries Haiti, El Salvador and the 54 nations that exist on the African continent, inhabited by more than 1.2 billion people stewing together in a mix of races, religions, cultures, languages and ambitions that almost defy demographics. He compared them to would-be immigrants from Norway, with less than 6 million prosperous people 2.5 million less than live in the five boroughs of New York City 95 percent of them Norwegian by birth and history and the rest either European or other (2 percent). In other words, Mr. Trump compared a people snow white from their nose to their toes to Africans, Haitians and Salvadorans, who are not. Lets pretend for a moment that the comparison Mr. Trump made was merely pragmatic, not racist. In practical terms, for example, is Haiti a shithole country? Some 35 percent of Americans, those who continue to support Mr. Trump, think so. They began to defend his statement in social media posts with vigor and a logic that went like this: One, Haiti is a shithole so Trump is telling the truth and the liberal media is slanting it; and two, we are not racists for saying so. Practically speaking, theyre right. The economy of Haiti is in a shambles, corruption is widespread, the government is ineffective, the island is besieged by natural calamities and crime is high. El Salvador can be described in similar terms. Africa? Those terms dont work for the massive continent, but for some countries, yes. But the truth lies far from such facts. The truth is, Haitians have as much courage and grace as anybody on the planet, and so do Salvadorans, and so do Africans, including the North Africans. I know some of them, Americans living and working to establish lives of opulence, security and opportunities for their children the rest of us embrace. But the people I know send money back to their relatives. Do you and I send money to individuals whom we owe nothing? They go back in the middle of disasters and try to save family members and friends. They rebuild little villages and towns where they grew up, start schools, establish systems that provide clean water, invite their families to see this shining city on the hill, a phrase we other Americans have proudly used to characterize ourselves. Heres the funny thing about the mirror: Ireland could have been described in exactly the same way Mr. Trump and a third of Americans see Haiti, now as a shithole, a place from which 4.5 million Irish immigrated to the United States between 1860 and 1930. England, too, with many other European places. And Asia? Well, of course, from the Koreas to the southeast, and from India to China to Japan. Shitholes all. During the Great Famine in Ireland, from 1845 to 1852, 1 million people starved to death not just from the potato blight but from the policies and laws of the British, who attempted their extermination. Thats 1 million human beings on a single, little island. No wonder they came. For centuries in England, people were burned, hung and decapitated, their heads mounted around city gates and city centers if their politics, religion or daily behavior didnt suit the powers that were. No wonder they came. Similar conditions existed at one time or another in all the major European countries and Russia and Asia, as well. And eventually their people the lucky, the bold, the tough and enduring made their way here. No wonder. What this means becomes evident in the Trump mirror: First, were looking at the reflection of a nation founded by shithole escapees, who brought so much energy and talent and grit. Second, without shitholes the United States of America would be nothing. And finally, we can recognize this inarguable truth (thank you, Mr. Trump): A failure to understand is a failure to be truly American. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Im referring, of course, to President Tweety Bird Trump. One has to show all the due respect, and that is all I can muster. So Tweety is pecking away as he starts off the New Year with his Twitter bombast bomb blasts. Most of his output is the routine ridiculous stuff: He suggests that another political opponent in this case Huma Abedin, who has been attached at the hip to Hillary Clinton her entire adult life should be jailed for her sloppy handling of classified emails, at least in President Tweety Birds mind. He also takes credit for the significant aviation achievement that there were no commercial airline fatalities in 2017. Of course, he had little to do with it. And then theres his running trashtalk battle with North Koreas Kim Jong Un, who would be a clown, except for the fact that hes developing a nuclear arsenal that threatens world annihilation if not expertly finessed. Tweety obviously is not a finesse kinda guy. He ridicules the North Korean tyrant by calling him Rocket Man. Theyre well-matched, and its not just their small, pudgy hands. They both have fragile egos that they try to cover with bluster. So when Kim makes a speech taunting the United States by saying, The nuclear b utton is always on my desk, Tweety Bird Trump cant resist: Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works! Besides the fact that Tweety is once again displaying that hes always very insecure about size, hes also playing with fire at the very moment Kim also was hinting he might be willing to lower the temperature just a tad. Maybe the Trump belligerence is part of an Art of the Deal scheme. I know ... lets do like everyone else and search for clues in his 1987 bestseller Art of the Deal. Yes, it was written by someone else with little input from Donald Trump, but lets look anyway. How about this quote: I never get too attached to one deal or one approach. That might explain why Tweety Bird constantly contradicts himself. It keeps his adversaries off balance as theyre trying to bargain with him. The other side of that is that his word means very little because he cant be trusted to mean what he says, and has little or no impulse control. Heres another insight worth pondering: You cant con people, at least not for long. Thats the thing: His base, those millions of people who were conned into thinking hed be their champion, should have figured out from his actions that he was blatantly ignoring the reasons that alienated them in the first place. Instead, he has constantly promoted the interests of the same robber barons who have cheated the system and obliterated economic fair play. If people will eventually catch on, they certainly havent yet. That other Tweety Bird, the cartoon figure, always exclaims, I tot I taw a puddy tat. When he looks at Trump, hell say, I tot I taw an autocrat. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. Yes, take Oprah seriouslyIf Hillary Clinton could deliver a political speech half as effectively as Oprah Winfrey, she might be president today. The actress, media mogul and erstwhile queen of daytime TV gave what, if she ever becomes president, will be known to history as the Golden Globes Address. The first de facto convention speech ever delivered at an awards show, it brought down the house and predictably stoked talk of Oprah 2020. In the era Before Trump, this would have been risible. Once upon a time, military service, political experience, a policy portfolio and national-security chops were mandatory to plausibly run for president. That time feels like a long time ago. What Donald Trump proved is that a celebrity with charisma, performative ability and gobs of free media can, in the right circumstances, stomp conventional politicians who lack all three. People who were merely governors and senators, who had never really performed on a big stage or truly mastered the media (they were just politicians, after all), stood at a distinct disadvantage. A common cold-water argument against Oprah running is that Democrats will want the opposite of Trump in 2020, an experienced, boring politico whos well-versed in the issues and a reliably competent executive. This line works on paper. Republicans said the same thing about Barack Obama, who prior to 2008 had come as close to genuine celebrity-hood as a working politician can get. Yet Donald Trump succeeded where the worthy, earnest, managerial Mitt Romney failed. On the current trajectory, what Democrats will most need in 2020 is someone with a big enough personality that Trump cant diminish and negatively brand him or her. This is what he did with the rest of the Republican field and Hillary Clinton in 2016, and he easily could do the same against Pocahontas, aka Elizabeth Warren, and Crazy Bernie Sanders. Oprah, used to commanding a massive microphone and managing a matchless brand, might be relatively immune to this treatment. Shed be the empathetic healer, the advocate of abused women, running to make history in the shadow of the civil-rights movement. If, that is, shes truly interested. Even the best campaigns have down cycles and bring humiliations of the sort celebrities usually avoid. Why would Oprah, who at the moment never has to encounter anyone who isnt in awe of her, want to sign up for that? Half the country would, by definition, begin to dislike her. She would have to fight with that part of the Democratic base committed to Bernie Sanders and suspicious of her as a Hollywood billionaire. Shed experience something that shes never truly had to encounter: negative press. For the first time, she wouldnt be completely in control of her own image. Shed have to answer for her promotion of kooky products and theories over the years, and open up more about a private life that has been almost entirely shielded from public view. If Oprah ran and lost, shed become a failed presidential candidate and could presumably never quite return to being Oprah Winfrey again. In short, there are compelling reasons for her not to make the plunge. The inherent absurdity of the idea is not one of them.

KATIE KREISChiropractic Physician Full Physical Therapy Facility BEHIND THE WHEELThe potency of plugging inThe plug-in hybrids have an interesting allure. They are built with gasoline engines that can power a car all on its own, and they can also be plugged in so that batteries can save enough juice to be a pure electric machine over urbansized distances. This balance even comes with some nice breaks, including $4,000 in tax credits and the use of I-95 Express Lanes without paying a toll (after registration). Its even a good way to get preferred parking. After all, many electric vehicle charging stations are becoming some of the sweetest spots at shopping centers. Although be on the lookout occupancy fees for charged vehicles a trend that will likely increase as plug-in hybrids become more popular. Its surprisingly easy to get to this level of green. Cars like the Toyota Prius Prime and upcoming Hyundai Ioniq Plug-in are great contenders because they offer good pure electric range, good build quality and if optioned correctly, both can fall below $25K after tax incentives. While those are specially built budget hybrid machines, the segment does not end there. Were getting a growing trend of incognito green machines that look like their more conventional siblings. The Ford Fusion Energi was one of the first to try this. While it seemed more of a novelty when it debuted a half-dozen years ago, a recent refresh and constantly lowering of the base price (now under $30K after tax credits) has made it something to reconsider. Today it can go about 20 miles as a pure electric machine or a bladder-busting 610-mile total range long haul that seems like real utility in a family-sized package. But before anyone runs out to buy a Fusion Energi just to go from Naples to Atlanta on one gas/electric fill-up, there are some things to remember. First, the air conditioner thats so necessary in Florida will cut deeply into EPA range ratings, especially during all-electric driving. Also, regenerative braking means these hybrids get their best mileage in the city. Its also good to beware of cars using electrification for performance. In the Mini world, an S is about adding extra power. For example, the regular Cooper Countryman All4 comes with a 134 hp 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder motor. The Cooper S model adds an extra cylinder and a 41 percent jump in horsepower. The nomenclature gets a little different for the plug-in SE model. It comes with the base 134 hp turbo, and its now supplemented by an 87 hp electric motor. The combined total makes the SE more powerful than the S model, but theres a catch. The Countryman SE really needs owner participation. If it never gets plugged in, the hybrid relies almost solely on the base-level gas motor. Plus, the electrification equipment adds a hefty 405 pounds over the standard Cooper Countryman All4. So, without battery power, one of the most powerful Minis available now feels like a base model with two adults and a child permanently along for the ride. Not only do the battery packs add weight, but they have to be placed somewhere in the vehicle. For example, the Fusion Energi gives away a substantial amount of its trunk space. The Mini wisely doesnt infringe on the cargo utility of this hatchback, but it does shrink the fuel tank to under 10 gallons. That gives the SE an EPA maximum range of 270 miles 133 less than the standard Countryman. The most interesting plug-in frontier might be in people haulers. After all, the short trips of an EV are defined by daily school runs and neighborhood soccer practice. Chryslers Pacifica Hybrid trades in the second-row floor storage for battery housing. So, it doesnt intrude on the main cargo area of the fuel tank. Plus, the V6 gas motor offers decent performance without electric charge. And when its fully juiced up, the hybrid beats the standard version with up to 40 percent better fuel economy and an extra 152 miles of range. Electrifying a Pacifica costs $7,400 extra, and its probably no coincidence that this currently qualifies for a larger $7,500 tax credit to ease the burden. Plug-in hybrids have an appeal because theyre environmentally friendly EVs for short trips as well as gas-powered cross-country haulers. However, the dual-power versatility comes with sacrifices. This is a topic we are going to have to keep revisiting as the utility goes up and the prices go down. But for today, be clear about your needs before adding the spark of electricity to your gas-powered machine. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

A6 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 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.

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationMy dog Keeper used to be a brownand-white tornado on the exam table at the veterinary hospital. Hes a nice boy otherwise, and I dont know what it was in his past life that made him fear being on top of the table, but it has always been a struggle for veterinarians to examine him because hes trying so hard to escape. Lots of people have the same problem with their dogs and cats. Some animals are so fearful that they tremble, cry, defecate or throw up in the car on the way to the veterinary clinic. We are lucky that Keeper enjoys car rides and even going into the clinic; he just doesnt like being on the exam table. Nonetheless, I wanted to make veterinary visits more pleasant for him, not to mention easier on the vets and staff who had to handle him. My fellow Pet Connection columnist Dr. Marty Becker has been concerned about this problem for a long time. Its what inspired him to found Fear Free, which trains vets, technicians and other animal professionals to recognize, reduce and prevent fear in animals who come to the clinic for care. Veterinarians love pets, and we want them to feel comfortable and loved when they visit us, but the strange sights and smells they encounter at the veterinary clinic can be a big turnoff and even frighten them, he says. Keepers veterinarian had already been using one Fear Free technique sitting on the floor when he examined Keeper. The past couple of visits, I remembered to bring treats or to grab some out of the jar at the clinic, and they were a game-changer. Last week, my husband set Keeper on top of the exam table, and he started to spin around like crazy, trying to escape. I started handing him treats nonstop. That got his attention and kept it. The veterinary technician came in to take his temperature, and Im not sure he even noticed. As long as I was holding treats, he focused on them and nothing else. Keeper will eat anything, but Dr. Becker likes to offer something special. Speaking at the 2017 conference of the American Veterinary Medical Association, he said: Food is currency in a pets world. Youve got to have really good treats. Pet-Tabs are a penny in a pets mind, but they dont normally get hot deli turkey or bacon-cheese-flavored squeeze cheese. For pets who are extremely fearful, preparation for veterinary visits can begin as much as a week in advance with what Dr. Becker calls a magic carpet ride of pheromones. Spray or wipe down the pets carrier regularly with the chemical concoctions that simulate the soothing substances mother dogs excrete or the markers that cats use to make a place or person feel familiar. Line carriers with fleece blankets that have also been treated with pheromones. That helps the car ride be less frightening. We used another Fear Free technique on this most recent visit. I went inside to check us in while my husband waited in the car with the dogs. They didnt enter the clinic until an exam room was ready for them, so there was no sitting around in the lobby and allowing anxiety to build up. I dont know whether Keeper will ever love being on an exam table, but its sure a lot easier now to have him on one. As long as I remember to bring treats, I may no longer have to warn vets and techs to hang on to him so he doesnt try to flee over the edge.

A8 WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 2018 FLORIDA WEEKLY ON THE LINKS larryBUSHlbush@floridaweekly.com It seems unlikely anyone has ever had more fun playing golf than Jack Nicklaus. We know all the numbers by now 73 wins on the PGA Tour, 10 more on the senior tour overall, 27 major championships, including 18 and 7, respectively, plus a pair of U.S. Amateurs. How much more fun can anyone stand? But the game will outlast us all even Jack Nicklaus. He turns 78 on Jan. 21. He says he hasnt played in a tournament since 2005 a real 72-hole tournament, that is, with a scorecard and a pencil. He doesnt count the Father-Son last month in Orlando, where he teamed with grandson GI, Garys 15-year-old son, in a scramble format. We havent used my tee shot in five years, the elder Nicklaus says. But Mr. Nicklaus insists hes still having fun playing golf, and that you can, too. You want to improve your score? Just move up to the next tee. You just have to find out where you can play and still enjoy the game just dont let your ego get in the way. Jack Nicklaus was at The Club at Ibis on Northlake Boulevard recently for the traditional ribbon-cutting after he redesigned the Legend course. He had done the original layout 25 years ago. That was a 1991 golf course, we played with wooden woods, the balls and the shafts were different, too. Now we have a nice, modern 2017 golf course with 2017 golf balls and 2017 equipment. The Legend can be set up at 6,9007,000 yards for top players, 6,300 yards for amateurs, 6,000 for women and the over-70s. Nothing unusual here, just a newer, 21st century playground, one of three at Ibis by the Golden Bear and his cubs, making it the only golfing community anywhere with three courses by Team Nicklaus. Jackie did the Heritage, Steve, the Tradition. Presumably, they will be updated soon, within the next five years. There was nothing here the first time, Mr. Nicklaus said, It was an alligator farm. We had to create a golf course, on the edge of the Grassy Waters Preserve, the main city water supply for West Palm Beach. We couldnt change the water because we dont own the water. This time, we had to make sure the housing was not the focal point on each hole. Its nice to hear your applause before you play the course, he told the members and guests who gathered under threatening skies. His ceremonial tee shot was right down the middle, of course, not far, but straight, he added with a smile. And fun, too. Four teams from Palm Beach County and one from Hobe Sound were among the six flight winners at the Leon Pop Sikes Team Championships during Christmas week at Atlantis Country Club. The alternate shots event drew 90 teams. Included were Brian and Brant Peaper, Tequesta, Father-Son, pro division, gross, 139; Jim Rovezzi, Boynton Beach, and Jimmy Rovezzi, Lake Worth, F-S, amateur, net, 130; Tim and Mary Janiga, Wellington, Parent-Child, gross, 78; Carole Howison, Boynton Beach, and Ryan Howison, Jupiter, P-C, net, 68; Olin Browne Sr. and Jr., Hobe Sound, F-S, 142; and Bill Jr. and Luke Miller, Fort Wayne, Ind., F-S, amateur, gross, 145. Zac Oakley of Bridgevile, Del., was the only multiple winner during the 41st season of the PGA Tournament Series at the PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie. He captured the second event at 136 on the Dye course and the season finale on the Ryder (132). Other winners were Danny Balin, Rye, NY; Daniel Iceman, Shelbyville, Ind.; Bob Sowards, Dublin, Ohio; and Brett Melton, West Chester, Pa. Luke Gifford of Boca Raton won the 87th Dixie Amateur late last month, scoring five under par 283 at Heron Bay GC in Coral Springs.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 2018 NEWS A11 Acupuncture for Fibromyalgia and Chronic FatigueQuestion: How can Acupuncture help with my fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue? Answer: While fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome are considered to be separate disorders, they often are linked due to the common symptom of severe fatigue. Our bodies desperately need restorative sleep. The body needs to recharge to operate optimally. Sleep is an often-overlooked aspect of health, wellness and success. Proper sleep improves immune responses, which helps you heal faster and be more productive. Those suffering from fibromyalgia, a condition mostly affecting women, may experience a wide range of symptoms, including severe fatigue, pain in at least 11 out of the 18 specific points on the body, stiffness, aches and muscle tenderness, as well as sleep disorders, anxiety and digestive troubles. In addition to effectively treating the painful symptoms associated with these conditions, Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can address the root cause of the underlying imbalance while improving energy and sleep cycles. Putting an end to the vicious cycle of discomfort, anxiety and possibly depression brought on by fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. With acupuncture, natural herbal formulas, dietary and calming exercise recommendations, health and wellness can be achieved.ADVERTISEMENT AcuWellness Group Acupuncture for Health and Healing Address: Downt own Abacoa 1209 Main Street, #104, Jupiter, FL 33458 Phone: 561-557-6556 Website: acuwellnessgroup.com Email: info@acuwellnessgroup.comAcuWellness Team: Wendy Miller: Acupuncture Physician, Diplomate of Oriental Medicine, Louise Hudek: Acupuncture Physician, Diplomate of Oriental MedicineACUPUNCTURE HEALTH AND HEALINGChristy Bongiovanni Acupuncture Physician Diplomate of Oriental Medicine Holistic Health Coach Ask the Health & Beauty Experts Palm Beachs best kept secret!www.specialoccasionscouture.com 561.242.0361 1900 Okeechobee Blvd., Suite C3West Palm Beach, FL When a loved one strikes out at you? Take a deep breath, respond slowlyMom, I cant believe youre not coming to Cleveland to help babysit. You know the nanny just quit and work has been a nightmare. All you care about are your Florida friends and your yoga classes. Evelyn was stunned. Carly, how can you say that? My Florida friends and yoga are not my priority. I resent that you would say that. Well, Mom, thats how I feel. You dont think about us at all. Evelyn tried to defend herself: Carly, you know I havent been feeling the greatest since my surgery, and the cold up north goes right through me. Besides, I just spent three weeks with you in September. Doesnt that count for anything? There you go! Keeping score. Yes, you came in September. But you always like to get out of the Florida heat in September. I need you NOW. Youre incredibly selfish. This was too much for Evelyn to take: Look whos talking about selfish? Did you show any concern when I had surgery? My friends found time to visit me. But my own daughter couldnt be bothered.Evelyn knew shed upped the ante to a precarious place. Criticizing Carly about even the smallest things invariably led to screaming matches or stony stand-offs. Carly had recently separated from an explosive marriage, and was exhausted, working overtime to make ends meet. From Evelyns perspective, Carly seemed to think that Evelyn lived a life of leisure in Florida, and that Evelyn should drop everything whenever Carly needed her. It didnt seem like Carly had any consideration for the fact her mother had experienced health issues and wasnt feeling up to helping. Evelyn wanted to have a close relationship with her daughter, but it seemed like every time she tried to communicate with Carly, things got worse. Lets face it. None of us feels very good when another person points out our flaws. We may become embarrassed or ashamed or much of the time, downright resentful. So understandably, in the face of another persons wrath or criticism, many of us behave defensively: we may vociferously discredit everything the other person said, shrink away or decide to viciously counter-attack. While we may say that were truly open to hearing from the other person and might claim wed like her to feel comfortable in speaking up in actuality its not an easy position to be in. Instead of listening carefully and possibly acknowledging that the other person may be making a fair point, we may instead put up a wall and get defensive. According to the Gottman Relationship Institute, Defensiveness is defined as self-protection in the form of righteous indignation or innocent victimhood in an attempt to ward off a perceived attack. Many people become defensive when they are being criticized, but the problem is that its perceived effect is blame. Defensiveness is really a way of blaming your partner. Youre saying, in effect, The problem isnt me, its you. As a result, the problem is not resolved and the conflict escalates further. This knowledge can guide us to be more effective in the face of negative feedback. We can learn a different way to rein in our defensiveness and to defuse polarized conflicts. The heated exchange in the fictionalized vignette above highlights these very principles. Many of us can identify with Evelyns frustrations and might view Carly as a demanding, spoiled brat. We might even have rallied Evelyn to attack back, or certainly to slam down the phone. However, we know that Evelyns goal is to be a support and to maintain a close relationship with her daughter at a very trying time. In this highly charged emotional field, both women were so busy defending their own positions, that they lost an important opportunity to offer emotional support to each other. In the face of criticism from someone we care about, it behooves us to take a deep breath, settle our emotions, and to acknowledge that we know the other person is upset, and that wed like to understand whats bothering them. What might Evelyn have said in the face of such a vitriolic attack to defuse the intensity? Its quite possible that if Evelyn acknowledged that she understood how stressed and unhappy Carly is and showed her willingness to listen supportively, without judgment, that Carly might have softened her stance and become more receptive. Lets consider the effect if Evelyn had said: Carly, I see how upset you are with me. Can you tell me more about how youre feeling right now? And, if Evelyn restrained herself from escalating in a retaliatory way and then acknowledged that she could imagine that from Carlys perspective, it might seem like Evelyn was not showing care nor a willingness to assist her daughter at a trying time, Carly again might hear that her mother is engaged in trying to really understand how upset she was. Many of us worry that we are inviting more negativity or harsh complaints if we ask the upset person to explain herself. However, quite paradoxically, when we demonstrate we are open to hear the others complaints without judgment, we oftentimes disarm the hostility and may open a collaborative supportive conversation. According to Dr. David Burns, a renowned author and psychiatrist: Intimacy requires the humility and the willingness to examine your own failures in your relationships. This can be painful because feelings of shame get in the way, especially where we care about the person whos criticizing us and we sense that her criticisms are true. We dont want to hear it. So, instead of listening and acknowledging the truth in the criticism, we put up a wall and get defensive. We tell ourselves that the other person doesnt know what they are talking about. Of course this annoys the other person, and she intensifies her attack. What might have been a golden opportunity for intimacy simply becomes an endless battle of egos.

A14 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY that range from all-in-one motor coaches to fifth-wheel and bumper-pull trailers filled with the recognizable trappings of home life: cats and dogs, comfy sofas, keys hanging by the door, air fresheners that smell of Christmas, showers, stoves and cabinets, even some with washers and dryers, albeit usually on a relatively small scale. Home is where we park it, says Joe Masiello, who lives with his wife, Donna, in their Montana High Country RV trailer year round. Their stops over the last year include Virginia, Tennessee and Lee County. RVers come from nearly any place in the U.S., including Alaska. Many are seasonal residents from Midwest or Northeastern states. While their ages, often in their 60s and 70s, make them part of the baby boomer or earlier generations, they also include what some RVers and resort managers say they have observed is a growing number of families with children. Although there are no official counts of who lives life on the road for what periods of time, most are considered to be part-time RVers, such as those who spend a clement winter in South Florida before rolling back north to fixed residences. A growing number of others live life fulltime on wheels, possibly keeping a home base or post office box somewhere, while running their business from wherever they are or traveling as workampers: going from job to job or volunteer position throughout the year. The Masiellos routine for several years has been to travel from a campground in Virginia to enormous Amazon.com warehouses, where they work a seasonal job with hundreds of other RVers over the holiday shipping season, this year in Murfreesboro, Tenn. Finally, they travel on to the Army Corps W.P. Franklin Lock & Dam park and campground in east Lee County outside Fort Myers. Here until April, they and other volunteers make the rounds at public schools to teach the Corps water safety courses, featuring Bobber the Water Safety Dog, for prekindergarten through fifth grade kids. In exchange, they get a place to park and hook up to amenities for the season. The Amazon job is their main source of income for the year, and it is hard work. A company spokesperson, Brenda Alfred, said it hires hundreds of seasonal workers through its CamperForce program for RVers. For three to four months ending on Dec. 23, they work at four huge warehouses, which range in size from 800,000 to 1,000,000 square feet, which Amazon calls fulfillment centers in Kentucky and Tennessee. Workers are assigned to either pick, pack, stow or receive packages sent during the holidays. Pay rates vary from $10.75 to $11.75 per hour and include a paid campsite, according to the company website. Workers are expected to be open to working voluntary and mandatory extra hours with time-and-a-half pay for overtime. They are expected to move large quantities of merchandise throughout a 10 to 12-hour day in warehouse conditions that can range in temperature from 60 to 90 degrees. Mr. and Ms. Masiello, who are 74 and 69, respectively, are also one of Amazons love stories she said. They met working at one of the warehouses in 2013. That same day Donna started, Mr. Masiello recalled, I just kept looking at this good-looking girl and going mmhmmm and the rest is history. Ms. Masiello, who grew up in Pittsburgh, Pa., and had past experience in RV traveling before meeting her husband, said the life has allowed her to see the U.S. and learn about its history at places where they stay such as Greys Point Camp in Topping, Va., on the Rappahannock River. I was a gypsy, she said. I always wanted to see everything and never could I got to see all the states, practically, so its been great. The couple hopes to break from their yearly routine in coming years. Wed like to get out West and visit the rest of the country, said Mr. Masiello, who is their designated driver with his past experience behind the wheel of a semi-truck. Richard and Linda Beck, the Masiellos fellow volunteers and friends at the Franklin Lock campground, are retirees who live in their RV for four months per year here before returning to their home in Strasburg, Ohio. They find the volunteer work rewarding, teaching kids lessons that can save their lives, and the weather here isnt bad either. Its nice to leave the cold weather in Ohio and come down here where its nice and warm, Ms. Beck said. FOR SOME, RVING IS ENTIRELY A LIFESTYLE choice, while for others it can also be a way to save money on rising housing costs while offering a unique chance to see the countryside and meet fellow travelers. I can see the state of Florida anytime I want and bring my home with me or anywhere in the country for that matter, said Debi Bartnik.RV LIFEFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOTop: Scores of RVs were on display at the 2017 Florida RV SuperShow in Tampa.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 2018 NEWS A15She and her husband, a retired law enforcement officer named Terry, sold their Florida home in 2012 and since then have lived full-time in their RV. And its affordable. The people are amazing that you meet. Weve met everyone from an astronaut to engineers to military, its an amazing lifestyle. The Bartniks, who were parked at Jetty Park Campground in Cape Canaveral in early January, run an antiques and estate sales business, Atlantic To Gulf Estate Services, out of their 36-foot Tiffin Allegro. Also along for the ride: their 14-yearold Scottish terrier, Koko, who is enjoying Jetty Park. Here she gets to run, chase squirrels, she loves it, she absolutely loves it, Ms. Bartnik said. They regularly attend shows such as the West Palm Beach Antiques Festival on the first weekend of every month. The biggest show of the year is coming up on Feb. 2-4, Ms. Bartnik said. They have also stayed at Jonathan Dickinson State Park near Jupiter. She gives RV life a good review, .5 out 10, subtracting a half point for lack of space. You have to be able to live with your spouse in an enclosed space, she said. Theres no door to slam if you get mad. This is what I always tell people if they say I dont know if I could do that: If you like cruising, and you dont mind being on a cruise, you may like this lifestyle. Im originally from Long Island and Im an Italian cook so what I had to get used to is the cooking, the limited amount I could cook at a time. To get mail, Ms. Bartnik said they have a post office box on Merritt Island, but most parks have mail service for RVers as well. THE RV INDUSTRY HAS GROWN DRAMATIcally since bottoming out during the Great Recession, said Dave Kelly, director of marketing for the Florida RV Trade Association. The number of shipments of RVs from manufacturers to dealers in the U.S. dropped from 353,000 in 2007 to 165,000 in 2009, before growing each year. The count for 2017 is expected to be about 500,000. The whole industry is just exploding, he said. In Jessica Bruders 2017 book about people who live life on the road, Nomadland, she reports on how the economy, including the rising cost of home ownership and rents compared to stagnant wages, has been a factor in pushing many towards living life full time in an RV or trailer, going from job to job. Mr. Kelly attributes the increase to a lifestyle choice and the attraction of the social aspect, being a part of a friendly community, and says that people who commit to selling their homes or leaving rental units and living full time in an RV without any home base are rare. But were seeing more people we call extended timers, he said, who go out on the road five, six, seven months out of the year or more. The internet and cellphones have just made it even more liberating, more freedom for people who do want to get out on the road, he said. At Sanctuary RV Resort in Bonita Springs, which opened in 2014, 400 spots are sold out with people on the waiting list. Thats not unique to us, either, thats everybody, all our competitors, too, said general manager Rebecca Troyer. The RV market is definitely on the rise in the whole country. Generally, its baby boomers, and they are getting out of the cold weather. So instead of purchasing a home in our area they can try different areas before they decide if they want to purchase something. The average age of those at the resort is 59, which includes some younger families. Weve had several campers who are homeschooling and they travel all around the country, and theyve committed for like a five-year time span to go to every state and use it as part of their homeschooling, she said. Weve also found, too, that the couples that are younger can work from anywhere in the country, their job is like a work-from-home type of job. At Collier-Seminole State Park on the southwestern edge of the Everglades, 105 spots are for RVs and tents, which allow stays of up to two weeks, also fill up during the busy season in South Florida from roughly Thanksgiving through April. Were definitely seeing a rise in visitation and an increase in size in RVs, said Terrance Torvund, the parks manager. Many travelers pass through on a circuit of state campgrounds including Koreshan State Park in Estero and places such as Bahia Honda in the Keys, he said. Collier-Seminole also recruits a staff of 11 volunteers each year, typically RVers, who park there for about four months in return for their service. They help us maintain the park such as checking in campers, cleaning the bathrooms, greeting visitors and helping us with our resource management goals such as clearing trails and moving exotics, Mr. Torvund said. A LITTLE MORE THAN THREE HOURS AWAY from the Bartnik residence at Cape Canaveral, on a warm Monday evening in December, happy hour was just concluding outside Paula and Mike Gorrells home at Gulf View RV Resort in Punta Gorda. Inside their 33-foot Glendale Titanium camper, which Ms. Gorrell appreciates especially for its big drawers and closet space, lurked two cats, Holly and Uno. The couple and their neighbors had gathered outside in lawn chairs for a few beers, snacks, laughs and conversation, such as that nights college football championship game between Georgia and Alabama or RV maintenance. Mr. Gorrell, a retired electrician who worked in the construction industry, is able to do most of the repairs on their home himself. He is originally from Reynoldsburg, Ohio, while his wife is from Grafton, Mass., and in their sliver of yard they have two flags planted close together, one for the Ohio State Buckeyes and another for the New England Patriots. After they were married in the 1980s, their first RV, a 14-foot 1972 Shasta, was an affordable way to go camping with family. One of their favorite memories of RVing is traveling to the NASCAR races in Talladega, Ala., in the 1990s. They discovered Gulf View five years ago and found it so agreeable with its many activities and welcoming neighbors, theyve been back ever since, driving down during the winter months from their home in Clinton, Mass. where they first met so many years ago as high school teachers. For a free overnight stop on the way down, they prefer a truck stop where there is usually more activity going on 24/7, instead of a Wal-Mart or Cracker Barrel, which often allow RVers to stay if they follow rules of etiquette such as leaving after one night, not making a mess, and buying something from the store. They often stop at a Loves truck stop a few hours away from Gulf View the night before, get a hot meal and some rest, and drive on to their winter destination during daylight hours. Comin in in the darks a bummer, Mr. Gorrell said. While the Gorrells are not ready to sell their house and live in their RV full time, some of their neighbors are. Now youve got a bunch more people in this park who are selling their houses and going full time, he said. COURTESY PHOTOThe Collier-Seminole State Park campground offfers 105 spots for tents and RVs.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARYToo often we volunteer our time and financial resources without having the opportunity to fully experience or understand the positive impact our actions have on an individual or a community, especially when it is half way around the world. Last fall, the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach provided 23 young leaders a unique opportunity to experience an intense, immersive eyeopening mission to Israel. Because I have been searching for my own role as a leader in the Palm Beach community, I was honored to co-chair this trip, which was opened to current participants and alumni of federations Emerging Leadership Program (ELP). ELP is a 16-month program focused on empowering the next generation of local community leaders to advocate, lead social action and learn about our community. After eight years, ELP now boasts 100 alumni and current participants. Many of my fellow participants had traveled to Israel on similar touristfocused programs with the goal of building a connection to Israel and to Judaism. And while the missions foundation reflected those principles, the goal of this trip had a more specific purpose to see first-hand the impact of our leadership in Palm Beach County and federation while at the same gaining insight into the complexity of this dynamic state. We did not simply visit the historical sites, walk the streets and taste the foods of Israel, but immersed ourselves in the daily lives of Israelis. Our journey began in the Jewish Federations partnership community, known as the TZAHAR region, which encompasses three northern cities Tzfat, Rosh Pina and Hazor HaGlilit. These communities are located in the periphery, where jobs, education and transportation are significantly less accessible compared to major hubs like Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. The opportunities for children are difficult and unemployment is high. Back in Palm Beach, we could only read about the communities challenges, but actually meeting the faces in the pictures became a transformative experience that my fellow participants will not soon forget. In an instant, the faces in the pictures were not just faces, but people whom we now consider our friends; their concerns became our concerns. Seventeen years ago, during my first visit to Israel, I spent exactly three hours walking the art district of Tzfat, a city known as the center of Jewish mysticism and Kabbalah (Madonna, for instance, is an annual visitor and Paula Abdul had her Bat Mitzvah in Tzfat). Years ago, my tour guide explained there was no reason to stay longer, but that was clearly not the case. Over the last 30 years, Palm Beach County Federation has invested heavily in the region. Our involvement with this community has not just been about a monetary impact, but about the exchange of ideas between both communities. For example, seven years ago, two Palm Beach ELP participants proposed that the federations partnership region mirror Palm Beachs ELP program. Now, seven years later the region has two classes of ELP participants, emerging leaders in their own cities, all of whom welcomed us with open arms. Their unique stories about dealing with their challenges in their community opened a dialogue about how we can tackle our own struggles and be leaders in Palm Beach County. From Tzfat, we journeyed to the town of Ramla on the outskirts of Tel Aviv, where thousands of Ethiopian Jews have immigrated over the years. We met kindergarten students, who welcomed us with artwork, traditional snacks and dance. On the outside, the class easily could have mirrored any Palm Beach County classroom, but inside was something very different. Many of the parents or grandparents of those 5-yearolds painfully journeyed across a desert through many countries so their children could live freely in Israel as Jews. That same day, we met with federations partner agency, The Jewish Agency for Israel, to test our skills in wheelchair basketball. Why? For a short time, we suddenly had the tangible experience of the challenges faced by people with disabilities. Thanks to the support from our federation and others, people with disabilities can play basketball and experience the comradery and connection we all yearn for. There is no question that this was a memorable few hours for everyone in the group. There was not only a newfound appreciation for all that we take for granted, but the game challenged us in ways beyond the physical. We were encouraged to think about how our own community could be more inclusive to individuals with disabilities. During our mission, we also learned about the realities of Israels security from Israeli Defense Force (IDF) commanders, officers and those on the front lines of peace talks. We heard from a resident near the Gaza strip, as we noted bomb shelters all around us. She explained that in the early 2000s, her community would see up to five rockets a day each time hearing a siren and racing to shelter and then the number jumped to 20 times per day. For this resident and for so many others, facing terror was more than escaping the daily fire plummeting from the sky, but dealing with the prolonged psychological terror of never knowing when or how many rockets would land in their neighborhood. Despite this, we heard about the humanitarian efforts made in Syria and in Gaza. While it may not be the popular story to report in the press, every day, Israeli soldiers transport food to Syria and Gaza and assist with medical help. Every day, leaders in Israel make these difficult decisions rooted in good faith, in the face of a complex issue. As one commander told us, We do the right thing. The theme of doing right was loud and clear echoed by whomever we spoke with whether it was on the border of Syria or near the Gaza Strip. It seemed so simplistic, but yet a concept that is too often overlooked. Each Israeli leader we encountered acted with this general core belief. As we concluded our trip in Jerusalem, I could not help but reflect on the last 10 days. For so long, I connected my religion solely on a personal level, but I realized that was simply not enough. Israel may be thousands of miles away, but she is an extension of the community that I share with my neighbors in Palm Beach County. As I approached the automatic doors of Ben-Gurion Airport, I turned around for my last view of Israel and against the pitch black sky was the Israeli flag waiving proudly in the wind. My grandparents were born into a world where that flag did not exist. Today, it is the symbol of a country and a people that continues to persevere and prosper. And I looked out across Israels sky, tears came to my eyes. What now? How could I capsulate what this trip meant? I thought to myself, perhaps by being a leader and never again disconnecting from Israels example that I will forever carry in my heart.

You do everything Livingston, 48. You do everything you can to protect your family, so why would you let them risk their lives over a text message? Our mission is to eliminate distracted driving and to convince future generations of drivers to put down their phones and make our roads a safer place for everyone. His impetus for the invention was being a father to a teenage driver (he has three older children as well). About four years ago, my wife and I were on a motorcycle and you get a much better vantage point from there, he said. I noticed how many people were doing it (texting) and my two youngest stepkids were just starting to drive and it worried me. His device is a cradle positioned in the glove compartment. To operate the car, the designated phone must be in the cradle. The car wont start otherwise, but the driver can still make calls through Bluetooth features. If the phone is taken out of the cradle when the car is being driven, an emergency message is sent to the parent. Thats exactly what happened when Mr. Livingstons stepdaughter, Lilly, began to drive one of her dads test vehicles. Originally, she was on board, really liked the idea, Mr. Livingston said. That was until she realized that she was going to have to use it. She wasnt very good at abiding by the rules for the first few days. But shes fine now. She understands the importance of it. Shell be the first one to tell you, Oh, you should have seen this guy texting all over the road today. She sees a lot more now that her hands are on the steering wheel and not texting because her phone is in the glove compartment. It took her two or three days before she stopped complaining about it or doing things she shouldnt be doing, like floating the phone off the dock. After a few days of that we threatened to take the vehicle away. There are a lot of apps and features that try to prevent texting and driving and all are easily bypassed by teens and those technically advanced, Mr. Livingston explained. This is the only system that solves the issue. The device sells for $399 through the website. That price doesnt include installation, which takes less than an hour by a certified mechanic. It has a lifetime warranty once its installed. While that price seems high, Mr. Livingston said potential buyers could be reminded that they pay $1,000 for smart phones these days. And, its hard to put a price on the safety of our children. We have an agreement with Verizon, so theres no cost to anybody for two years. After two years, theres a small annual fee. We dont make any money off it after its been sold. He says his is the only device thats been approved through the FCC. It works flawlessly, which is nice, he said. People cant believe it actually works and theyve tried everything. Mr. Livingston, who was born in Toronto but has lived in Florida for 11 years, says the device is not just for young drivers. Were finding from the market research now that it really does not matter what the age parameters are anymore, he said. We used to say 15-25, but we have had women in their 60s text and drive. More people are willing to admit they do it. Owner of Parallax Business and Management Consultants Inc., Mr. Livingston says he has been working on updating and upgrading a variety of technological devices for 20 years. He has not sought investors for the distracted driving device but is financing the project himself, Were pushing for national release by the end of this month (January), Mr. Livingston. It looks like its going forward if we can get people to police themselves. Were going to the major networks, CBS and NBC, and we hope to have some spots through the Olympics. We are trying to negotiate to be one of the main sponsors for the new American Idol, but we havent closed that deal yet. National ads may be viewed at www.distracteddrivingdevice.com.

A22 WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 2018 FLORIDA WEEKLY MONEY & INVESTINGCryptocurrencies have jumped shark dont be lured to investI think most people have heard of the term jump the shark. This phrase applies to a TV episode where crazy or far-fetched events are included that are simply gimmicks used to boost ratings. The phrase apparently came from Happy Days, when in the fifth season the writers had Fonzie jump over a shark while water skiing, for no apparent reason. I am bringing this up because, in my opinion, cryptocurrencies have now jumped the shark and are moving into absurdity. What has caused this irrationality in the market and what does the future hold for these cyber moneys? The source of this craziness is simple greed. When bitcoin jumped from pennies to close to $20,000 per coin, I knew ludicrousness was not far behind. And I was not disappointed when on Dec. 21, a small iced tea brewer based in Farmingdale, N.Y., decided to change its name to Long Blockchain Corp. and change its primary corporate focus towards the exploration of and investment in opportunities that leverage the benefits of blockchain technology. This is a company that has one expertise brewing tasty iced tea. Yet it was now going to become a leader in cryptocurrencies. But even more insane is that investors rushed in to buy the company, and its stock price tripled overnight. And how was LBC going to become a leading cryptocurrency company? According to management, the plan was to raise $8.4 million by issuing new shares at these highly inflated price levels. It was then going to take this money and buy 1,000 Antminer A9 bitcoin mining machines and have them mine cryptocurrencies in a Nordic country. A day before the stock issuance was going to take place, LBC suddenly announced that it was scrapping its money-raising plans, with the reason rumored to be lack of demand for the new issue. However, the company still insisted it was going to proceed to buy the new equipment (which analysts estimated would cost over $5 million) although it can make no assurances that it will be able to finance the purchase of the mining equipment and it only had around $400,000 of cash on its balance sheet. And on this news, the stock of LBC rose again. Unfortunately, LBC was not the most outrageous example of a company jumping the shark with regard to cryptocurrencies. Eastman Kodak announced that it, too, was going to focus its attention on becoming a major player in the cryptocurrency field. Yes, the same Kodak that thought digital pictures were just a fad and that film was the future is now going to become a cutting edge leader in digital currencies. And once again, investors scooped up the stock, with it closing 100 percent higher after the announcement. The plan announced by Kodak was that it was going to develop KODAKcoin, which can be used to pay photographers when an image they created is used commercially online. Why photographers needed to be paid with a different currency than the rest of the world as well as how these photographers could use these coins was unclear. But to some investors, I guess that really doesnt matter. Going forward, I expect more companies to jump the shark and try to capitalize on this cryptocurrency mania. My advice is to stay away from these stocks. Far away. This reminds me of the dot.com bubble when any company even remotely connected to the internet saw their stock price rise through the roof. And yes, a couple of those stocks like Amazon did end up becoming very successful, but the vast majority of them ended up wiping out investors. And the same thing will happen here, too.

Maybe they made that up, but it speaks to who they are. Witty, high-spirited twins who dont take themselves too seriously. Anthony was born first, so he speaks first. Thats just the way it is. As a vehicle, Will & Anthony is wonderful, and its a blessing to share the stage with my brother, but there has to be more, Anthony said by phone. The brothers Anthony is a minute older understand that being a twin is a novelty that will get them noticed, along with their good looks and athletic builds, but there has to be something solid underneath or people will see through it and eat them alive. Fortunately, there is substance behind their style, and it will be on full display when Will & Anthony bring their new show to a familiar venue: The Royal Room at The Colony Hotel Palm Beach on Jan. 18, 19 and 20.

When I was a kid, wed head up U.S. 41 from Fort Myers to Sarasota there was no I-75 back then. Youd drive through Punta Gorda, Port Charlotte and North Port before stopping at a couple of shops in Venice. North of Venice were the hamlets of Osprey and Nokomis, where there was a shop that had windows crammed with colorful Victorian glass my lawn-mowing money didnt go very far there. From there, wed drive to Sarasota for an elegant show at the Art Deco Municipal Auditorium. There, youd see elegant porcelains, 19th-century English Staffordshire figures, furnishings dating from the early 19th century and booth after booth of sparkling cut glass and silver. My lawn-mowing money didnt go very far there, either. I still remember visiting Methuselahs, a Sarasota shop that was there for decades. It was filled with beautiful oak furniture from the United States and abroad. I walk through shows today to see pieces that would have been priced in the hundreds and the thousands back in the 1970s, but the markets have changed. Younger generations are not collecting the finery that people of my grandparents and parents era did. So that means some of the goodies that were priced in the thousands 40 years ago are priced in the hundreds today, and I very nearly could afford some of these goodies with my lawn-mowing money. Long ago, someone told me never to buy an antique as an investment, but rather to buy it because I liked it. The same thing goes for the limitededition collectibles that flood the market today. Only buy an object because you like it and plan to display it. And remember: Sometimes, the thrill of the hunt is as memorable as the acquisition. Thats why I smile at the sweet memories of traveling the highways of 1970s Florida.

Paid: $55 The Skinny: An object of quality always stands out. This Parian ware vase makes that case for me beautifully. Parian was an unglazed white porcelain created in the 19th century that resembled marble. It drew on the white biscuit porcelain created at the French factory of Sevres. English firms capitalized on the ware, displaying it at the Great Exhibition of 1851, according to The Antiques Almanac (www.theantiquesalmanac.com). Initially, factories used the medium to produce copies of classical marble busts and sculptures. It meant that for the first time, members of the middle class could own expensive-looking artwork. The English firms of Copeland & Garrett, Worcester, Minton and Wedgwood all made Parian. So did Fenton, of Bennington, Vermont, which created pieces encrusted with grapes, leaves and other flora. Online sources suggest this 18-inch vase, which is covered with roses and chrysanthemums, was made in 19th-century France or Germany. Its unmarked. But I do know it would have been priced many times what I paid for it had I been shopping in the 1970s. Thats a lot of lawns to mow. THE FIND:A monumental Parian vase

B4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYA touch of glass: Benzaiten to offer visiting artists events BY STEVEN J. SMITHssmith@ oridaweekly.comEnthusiasts of glass artwork will no doubt enjoy several upcoming events at the Benzaiten Center for the Arts in Lake Worth, where plans are in place to celebrate the works of world-renowned glassblowers, flameworkers and fusers. These glass masters Ross Richmond, Morgan Peterson, Dan Friday, Kelly ODell, Grant Garmezy and Chelsea Rousso will come to the center to share their art, knowledge and techniques as part of a series called Visiting Artists, according to Benzaiten founder JB Berkow, who is also a noted painter and sculptor in her own right, as well as operator of the Rosetta Stone Fine Art Gallery in Jupiter. The first Visiting Artists event, also called Art Synergy Lake Worth, is free to the community and will take place 6-10 p.m. Jan. 19 at Benzaiten just one day before its third anniversary. There will be a live band called Medicine Hat Blues Band, appetizers and wine, a gallery exhibit and glassblowing demonstrations by Ross Richmond, Morgan Peterson, Dan Friday and Kelly ODell. Mr. Richmonds work, Ms. Berkow said, shows at a number of galleries across the country. A Seattle-based glassblower, he works mainly with figurative elements and symbolic objects and also teaches in the U.S. and Canada. Ms. Peterson, also of Seattle, has received many awards and is particularly known for egg-shaped glass sculptures featuring intricate portraits of notable people. Drawing from cultural themes and using modern processes, Mr. Fridays work is contemporary in format and maintains basic Native American qualities, while Ms. ODells work principally explores themes of extinction, preservation and human impact on the natural world. Ms. Berkow said the next Visiting Artists event will take place Feb. 22-24, featuring the works of Grant Garmezy. This affair will include a Meet The Artist Dinner from 6-9 p.m. on Feb. 22 for $100 and a gallery opening from 6-8 p.m. on Feb. 23, which will cost $15 per person and include two drink tickets. A public demonstration will follow on Feb. 24 from 2-5 p.m. The gallery opening is really two openings in one, she said. The first is from 6 to 8 p.m. with piano music for the serious collectors and the other is from 8 to 10, when we bring in the live band. Thats more for the young collectors. But well have live demonstrations throughout the evening. Mr. Garmezy originally intended to focus on jewelry and small-scale metals, but once he wandered into the glass studio he discovered a love for the molten material. He is drawn to depicting animal imagery and natural forms. Ms. Berkow announced part of the March 22-24 Visiting Artists event featuring glass artist, fashion designer and writer Chelsea Rousso will double as a benefit for the Benzaiten. The gallery opening evening from 6 to 10 p.m. on Friday, March 23, will also serve as a fundraiser, which will be our wearable art exhibit, she said. Admission to that will be $50 per person, and it will be quite a show. Chelsea creates gorgeous wearable art. She makes wearable glass bustiers, corsets, bandeaus and swimwear, which have actually appeared on catwalks at the Smithsonian Institute, Centre Des Sciences de Montreal and The Glass Art Societys conference shows in Corning, N.Y., and Toledo, Ohio, among others. She said March 22 will spotlight the Meet The Artist Dinner from 6 to 9 p.m. for $100 and March 24 will feature a public demonstration from 2 to 5 p.m. About those dinners, Ms. Berkow said. Yes, they cost $100, but theyre very special. This year were holding them in local restaurants all around the Palm Beach County area to accommodate visitors we get from all over from Stuart and Jupiter to Boca Raton and even Miami. Attendees will get to sit down with the artists and listen to them talk about their art, their career and their inspirations. Questions are always encouraged and it all takes place in a nice, intimate setting that you dont normally get by just going to a gallery. The Visiting Artists series is an excellent way to introduce the community to the works of glass artists from all over the country and the world, she said. Its great to have a venue that goes to the trouble of flying in these artists so they can meet the public down here and so the public can actually see them creating work in real time, she said. You know, a lot of people have been to Venice or visited Milano and seen a little bit of glassblowing, but its very different when they come to Benzaiten. Our demonstrations offer a closer-up view. You can actually feel the heat the artists are working with. The demonstrations last a lot longer than those in other places and theres always live music. Its exciting and there are a lot of people around. Its just a totally different experience. Youre completely immersed in it. The Benzaiten Center for the Creative Arts is at 1105 Second Ave. S., Lake Worth. For those interested in taking up glass art as a hobby or a passion, continuing four-hour classes are currently offered in an air-conditioned studio at the Benzaiten on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Studio manager Camille Perrin teaches the process of fusing, which involves putting cold glass together in patterns and designs, then placing it in a kiln, where it fuses and melts together. Flameworking classes also are in session on Friday evenings, focusing on how to sculpt glass and make glass beads with a torch.

YesA great actor can say a lot without saying anything at all. After Hostiles, let there be no doubt Christian Bale is a great actor. Bales Capt. Joe Blocker is a study in repressed emotion and searing internal pain. Its 1892 in Colorado, and this former Union soldier is ready to retire. Hes spent his post-Civil War career in the untamed American West, tracking, arresting and killing Native Americans who harmed white people. He speaks softly because mere words cannot describe the horrors he has seen. Whats interesting about writer/director Scott Coopers (Black Mass) film is that we learn through dialog what Joe has done, and why he did it, but we learn the effect its had on him only by watching Bale, whose facial expressions and mannerisms say more than Joe could ever express verbally. For example, when Col. Biggs (Stephen Lang) orders Joe to escort a Cheyenne chief named Yellow Hawk (Wes Studi) and the chiefs family to Montana, watch how a look of sorrow and fury overwhelms Joes face. Small tics, such as moving his jaw to one side and looking away, suggest extreme unhappiness. He then tells the colonel why he doesnt want the job, and because his face just emoted as much as it did we realize, and feel, how incredibly difficult this is for him. Joe has help and needs it on the dangerous trip through Apache territory. His longtime cohort Tommy (Rory Cochrane) is emotionally spent; Henry (Jonathan Majors) has also been loyal to Joe for years; Rudy (Jesse Plemons) is fresh out of West Point; and Philippe (Timothee Chalamet) just joined the service. They are escorting the chief, his son Black Hawk (Adam Beach), Black Hawks wife Elk Woman (Qorianka Kilcher), and a few others. They also come across a distraught white woman (Rosamund Pike) whose family has just been murdered, so Joe and company help her. Western fans will recognize elements of Stagecoach here, but in terms of tone and character its similar to The Searchers in that Joe is just as much of a savage as Yellow Hawk. Cooper is careful to not pass judgment on either character, and by not making either a hero or villain he allows for an unlikely understanding to form between the two. On a larger level, thematically, Cooper also calls attention to the decline of the American West and mistreatment of Native Americans, which echoes Dances with Wolves without being preachy. Cooper runs into trouble, however, by not giving the 134-minute film a tighter edit. Some scenes run long, while a good number of others shouldve been excised completely because they do nothing to advance the story. A film like Hostiles shouldnt feel this tedious. Lets hope Cooper, who did well with Bale in Out of the Furnace (2013) and directed Jeff Bridges to an Oscar in Crazy Heart (2009), doesnt make this kind of excess a habit. Still, Hostiles is worth a look for its fine performances and scenic cinematography. And if you get anything from the message of putting yourself in your enemys shoes and understanding that perspective, even better. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Christian Bale and Ben Foster, who plays a Union of cer sentenced to hang for his crimes, also appeared together in the 2007 :10 to Yuma remake.Did you know? FILM CAPSULESThe Post (Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Bob Odenkirk) The owner (Streep) and executive editor (Hanks) of The Washington Post debate whether to publish articles on the newly leaked and highly classified Pentagon Papers in the early 0s. Director Steven Spielbergs latest is a good drama that tells a good story and is by no means a disappointment, but its also unlikely to be the strong Oscar contender many are expecting. Rated PG-13.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.

Theres something special about performing a song you had a hand in writing. The first time he and Will teamed up with veteran songsmith Jeff Franzel, they had just learned their mother had breast cancer and instead of canceling the writing session, the brothers took their feelings and molded them into The Gift is You, a lyrical painting of love. The heart-felt ballad was included on their 2016 holiday EP, and now its been made into a music video starring Tony Award winner Cady Huffman in the mothers role. The video is filmed at the familys home in Pelham, N.Y., where their parents still live. The song also has been translated into Spanish (El Regalo Eres Tu) with help from Rudy Perez, the Cuban-American musical jack-of-all-trades. I look forward to releasing more songs in multiple languages, Anthony said. They already sing well in Italian. Popular Neapolitan music was served up with the meatballs at Sunday dinners with family on Staten Island. Their grandmas favorite song was the twins' rendition of The Prayer, the Oscarwinning ballad immortalized by Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli. Family and music are two themes hopelessly intertwined in the lives of the Nunziata twins. Their father, Joe, worked in advertising, but loved to sing. He played the trumpet. Their mother, Fran, sang, too, and played the piano. Music was a selection of the best of Broadway and the Great American Songbook. Our father encouraged us to make up songs, Anthony said. But the twins parents never treated them like two halves of a whole person. Each had his own identity because they recognized they were raising two individuals. Were similar but different, Will says. Mom and Dad raised us to have our own interests, and we very much have separate lives, Anthony says. We pride ourselves on being individuals. Of course, its only natural to have similar interests, and its partly genetics that makes their voices blend so splendidly, but there was more to the boys than music. We were competitive athletes, Will says. They excelled at swimming, cross country running and tennis, which they still play, especially when theyre in Palm Beach. There was a lot of loud laughter, Will says. We were taught by our parents to make laughter a constant in good times and bad. That quirky sense of humor made them a fit for a small role in the upcoming Netflix film, The Last Laugh, starring Chevy Chase and Richard Dreyfuss, two performers they admire. The movie will be released in 2018. We cant reveal much, but its a buddy comedy, but touching. We filmed one scene and it was such a joy, Anthony said. There is something just naturally funny about them. The brothers trained in improv at the Upright Citizens Brigade in New York City, but without that training, theyd still be a spectacle. They squabble like an old married couple. On their website, www.willandanthony. com, they have six (so far) episodes of Twin Therapy, 2to 3-minute skits of them in "couples" therapy. Its a little like watching a verbal ping pong match, except there are several balls in play. Will says he saw the whole concept for Twin Therapy in his directors brain, which fuels my passions. Directing, he says, is in my bone marrow. Ive always been fascinated by staging and how it worked, what happens behind-the-scenes worked. I would think about the hours of preparation that went into those moments when you step in front of the floodlights, Will said. When I get to direct, I feel fulfilled. Growing up, the twins performed steadily, taking on dozens of roles in theater before they headed off to Boston College, together but with separate plans: Anthony was a broadcast communications major, and Will studied theater arts. They both landed roles in the schools production of Godspell their freshman year. Anthony was cast as Jesus, Will as Judas. But a real turning point came when they were asked to sing a duet with the Boston Pops. Their chorale director, John Finney, chose Our Time, from Sondheims "Merrily We Roll Along." Anthony remembers being on stage and singing lyrics that had a deep and distinct personal meaning: "It's our time, breathe it in: Worlds to change and worlds to win. "Our turn, we're what's new, Me and you, pal, Me and you!" It somehow gave them the push they needed to pursue their dream of making a living performing together. At the same time, the brothers also realized how truly lucky they were. Our parents gave us so much love and support and taught us not to take anything for granted, Will says. The first thing we did before even getting booked was make a point to go to a school to visit the music and theater departments to offer encouragement. To make their commitment to young people official, the brothers started Will & Anthony's Arts Matter! Educational Outreach Program to provide young people with the tools and encouragement to set and reach their goals in the arts. They conduct master class workshops for singers and actors in high school and college and give the kids constructive criticism. They hosted a class at the Arts Garage in Delray Beach when they were here in December. Weve been given so much we knew we had to give back, Anthony says. Its important to give people encouragement. We were lucky because our family believed in us. I tell kids, Find people who do believe in you. Keep on searching until you find someone. One message we try to get across: Youre going to hear a lot of Nos. Theres a lot of pressure. Dont get discouraged, Will says. Slow down, take a step back, and look within for the answers. Good advice for anybody. Anthony gets the last word: Our mantra is to make people happy. Delray Beach plein air art event set for Jan. 26-28Fifty juried plein-air painters will capture the charm of Delray Beach at the third annual Plein Fun Fest competition, to be held Jan. 26-28 at Delray Beach.

This is a recurring dynamic in Gordon Cheung: New Order Vanitas. On view through Feb. 4, the 27 prints making up the exhibition have a pulse one second only to have their subjects disappear before our eyes the next, like wind-blown sand. Thats Mr. Cheungs computer algorithm at work. Although the invite to show at Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens was a year ago, its taken around three years to reach this body of work with first finding an open source algorithm that essentially re-orders pixels in a photograph without destroying or copying but simply repositions into complex patterns, he said by email. A floral arrangement is sliced up by what looks like metal blades or skyscrapers erupting from the ground in a print titled Jan van Hyrum I. Red fragments of a flowers petals have left blood-like stains on a few of the sharp plates. Its a struggle shared by many of the prints displayed. Objects fight off the impending, disintegration that forges ahead full speed only to end up blending with the background anyway or as ghostly strips of color, at best. The fragility and temporary nature of human life happens to be the message behind a highly popular style of still life painting that emerged in the Netherlands during the 17th century. Drawn from a biblical verse vanity of vanities, all is vanity Vanitas paintings often contained emblems of meaningless earthly possessions to underline their uselessness against the inevitability of death and certainty of human mortality. Mr. Cheungs still lifes and floral bouquets follow along those lines one pixel at a time. They depict decaying fruit, tulips, jugs, manuscripts, skulls and music scores and, as if a link were not already obvious, they are titled after Flemish and Dutch Golden Age masters, such as Hans Bollongier and Jacob van Walscapelle. The British artist, who is based in London, has described his style as a metaphor of our existence in a datasaturated era, an Ozymandian corrosion wrought with degraded memories and histories written by victors. Everyday life, contact with people, feeling the existence of life, our histories and all the thoughts and emotions that come from that interaction, sparks inspiration from which it might ignite a profound and inspiring compulsion to show a path, to follow through into a work of art, he said. In some works, such as Jan Davidsz. de Heem I (2015), his digital mark is barely discernible. If it werent for the abstract shower of colors developing at the top of the frame, we might think we are looking at a high-quality photograph of a well-known masterpiece. The strikingly vivid bouquet features fully blossomed flowers in pale pinks, orange and red; the color growing gradually intense the deeper our eyes travel to the core of the flowers. Adjacent to it, a sibling piece titled Jan Davidsz. de Heem II shows the devastating effect of time. The petals have been stripped of their identity and been reduced to more primitive shapes. There is no sense of depth. No insect life. No butterfly wings. Another pair of bouquets named after EJ Eelkema, and with a softer color palette, experiences the same fate in the same gallery room; its heartbreaking to watch. New Order Vanitas is said to be partially inspired by our most recent economic crisis as well as the first financial bubble commonly known as Tulipmania, during which the price of tulip bulbs rose spectacularly high with people giving their homes as collateral before prices collapsed. Mr. Cheung also cites the British band New Order and the cover of its Power, Corruption and Lies album as inspiration behind his series. But these facts are not necessary to appreciate what he has done. In fact, the fleeting quality of his renditions invites various interpretations. That he presents us with striking compositions and intentionally blurs them later, leaves room for a choice. We can choose to look at the glorious versions and ignore the decimated ones and, while doing so, pretend life is constant and complete, devoid of ugliness and mess. But that would be missing the point. CHEUNGFrom page 1 Gordon Cheung: New Order Vanitas>> When: Through Feb. 4. >> Where: Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens, 2051 S.

B16 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 18-24, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYMary Fisher to headline Armory show FLORIDA WEEKLY STAFFMary Fisher made a name for herself in the 1990s as an AIDS activist, giving speeches at the 1992 and 1996 Republican conventions that were considered groundbreaking. She also has made a name for herself as an artist. Textile Meditations: Mary Fisher & Friends, an exhibition spearheaded by Ms. Fisher, will be the Armory Art Centers first international textile arts show, opening on Jan. 19 and running through Feb. 10. Artist talks, a keynote speech, and two workshops are scheduled in conjunction with the exhibition. Mary Fisher is a fascinating and commercially successful artist with great passion, drive, and sensitivity. Like Mary, her friends and fellow artists are also accomplished experts, authors, and instructors in their fields. Its exciting to be able to feature a show like this with such a particular diversity of work in textiles, said Liza Niles, chief of exhibitions and education at the Armory. Ms. Fisher has worked all her life in media as diverse as photography, pencil, handmade papers, sculpture, constructed fabrics and innovative stitching. She gained recognition more than two decades ago as an AIDS activist, giving speeches and writing books that furthered public recognition of the crisis. She also has worked to establish her place as a distinguished artist who works in diverse media that include photography, sculpture, prints, beading and fiber art. She is known for combining and juxtaposing materials in mixedmedia works that have earned critical acclaim. Through the years, her art has revealed a soul that greets real-life agony with quiet grace while it has earned the respect of global textile design leaders, including four of Ms. Fishers friends whose work will be exhibited with hers in this one-of-akind show. Ms. Fisher will exhibit a body of work titled Words to Silence in this exhibition. Exhibiting artists include Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn from London and American artists Jane Dunnewold and Marsha Christo. The exhibition kicks off Jan. 19, with an opening reception 6-7:45 p.m. and artist talks from 7 to 9 p.m. At 5 p.m. Jan. 20, Ms. Fisher will give a keynote speech titled Collaborative Creativity. Two workshops are offered by the Armory Art Center and taught by Jane Dunnewold Jan Beaney, and Jean Littlejohn on Jan. 19-21. The timing of this show, in which the artists explore textile construction from five perspectives, perfectly complements the recent expansion of our fiber department, Ms. Niles said. The Armory is at 811 Park Place, West Palm Beach. For more information, visit www.armoryart.org or call 561-832-1776. FLORIDA WRITERSDebut novel illuminates the boundaries of community, connectedness and identity The Other Side of Everything by Lauren Doyle Owens. Touchstone, 272 pages. Hardcover, $25.Lauren Doyle Owens, who lives in the Fort Lauderdale area and has set her first novel there, is someone to watch. Her stunning literary murder mystery debut is at once a nail-biter and a brilliantly nuanced evocation of how communities work and dont work. How proximity to others does not create a neighborhood, how aging in place can foster a misery of isolation as contemporaries pass away and new neighbors remain strangers. Ms. Owens builds her novel around three major characters whose situations and perspectives rotate through the novel. Bernard White, about to turn 80, has lived in the suburban community of Seven Springs for decades and witnessed its socio-economic changes. Since his wifes death, he has become increasingly withdrawn. When he sees smoke rising from his neighbors house, he calls 911 and awaits the firemen, police and paramedics. The fire seems to have covered a murder. But why Adel? Who really knew her, anyway? Bernard feels helpless in the situation, somehow responsible for what happened. The tragedy wakes up the neighborhood, leading Bernard to begin a tentative reengagement. Amy Unger, a cancer survivor, spots the fire on her way home. Once a promising artist, she thought briefly of photographing or sketching the scene. But she is not yet ready. She is still cowed by her husbands disdain for her avocation. The marriage has gone cold, and Petes business trips are far too frequent and extended. Suffering from her mother having abandoned the family, 15-year-old Maddie Lowe attempts to take care of her brother and works in a restaurant near school and home. She also attempts friendship with Charlie, a homeless man who comes into the restaurant regularly. Her need for respectful attention is met in part by a neighborhood college student whose advances flatter her. However, her sexual awakening has a raw edge to it. A child being pushed into adulthood way too fast, Maddie meets her challenges with a surprising degree of effectiveness. Murders of elderly women in the neighborhood continue. These are not random. The killer has an agenda. Whats his motive? Is he an outsider or someone in their midst? The cluster of murders brings the neighbors together. The older residents, self-named the originals, rediscover old, faded friendships. As they catch up with each others lives, they form a kind of buddy system that has expected yet energizing consequences. For Bernard, a close friendship with an attractive woman develops, as do memories of past infidelity. Amys artistic creativity is reborn and released in a series of paintings about the murders. She paints with confidence, fulfilling her deepest needs. While the police suspect Maddies boyfriend could be the murderer, she must deal with her unexpected pregnancy. She struggles to break the habit of piercing her thighs as a mechanism to relieve tension. The outer pains masked the inner ones. Though this is not a particularly long novel, it has so much density of textured detail and psychological probing that it covers much more and leaves readers absorbed in a much more profound vicarious experience than novels twice its length. Through these three focal characters, whose lives hardly touch one another, Ms. Owens builds a vibrantly realized world spreading across three generations. She traces the ebbs and flows of individual and collective destinies, her narrative charged by a lyricism that is constantly evocative and revealing. A large cast of welldrawn supporting characters reinforces the themes of connectedness and renewal. This is a remarkable debut by a distinctive talent of great promise. Originally from Maryland, Ms. Owens is a graduate of Florida International Universitys MFA program. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com OWENS s d h PHOTO BY LUIS FABINIMary Fisher has worked all her life as an artist in a variety of media.

The Details: Ive loved John Gs since the first time I stood in a line that snaked around the old Lake Worth Casino. Theres still a line, even though John Gs moved a few years ago to slightly larger digs in Manalapan. But its worth the wait trust me. This Italian Omelet was fluffy, but packed with sausage, pepperoni, green peppers, mozzarella, onions and mushrooms, and topped with a tangy red sauce. Ive also enjoyed the fresh blueberry pancakes, and at lunch, the gazpacho, served over an icer and garnished with hot peppers, is some of the best anywhere.

Jan Norris FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINEChrissy Benoit to take over kitchen at Rivieras Johnny Longboards janNORRISjan@jannorris.com Johnny Longboats, a venerable Riviera Beach oceanfront casual restaurant, is about to get a makeover with its new owner. It wont be a total redo, however, according to the new chef-manager, Chrissy Benoit. The former owner at The Little House in Boynton Beach and the Lake Worth meet-up favorite, Havana Hideaway Ms. Benoit said shes excited about the chance to give it T.L.C. Thats what it needs. Her plan is to tweak things already in place rather than totally remake the restaurant. Im so excited. Its such a great spot. It has a great atmosphere flip-flop friendly. I plan to play with the menu, but keep it beachy and casual. The problem is its somewhat dated and hasnt been renovated in a long while, even after the Ocean Mall was rebuilt on the Singer Island beachfront in 2009, she said. The mall was sold in May 2017, and spaces are now renting out to new shops as well as one new restaurant: Mulligans. Negotiations for Johnny Longboats had been in the works for a year, she said; the deal closed a week ago. Gerard Hansen is the new owner. An investor with several interests in Palm Beach County, he has experience in restaurants in New Jersey, she said. His goal is to keep the bones of the restaurant intact while giving the chef room to improve it. Its past time, she said. No one is dazzled by it, the chef said. She would like to see it become a hub once more for beachside gatherings, and plans on bringing in live music, and tightening up the front of the house with new managers bringing professional experience from some of the bigger chains. A deep cleaning comes first, she said, then some menu tweaks. I will put my fish tacos and ceviche, and a few other things that are a good fit. We want to put in a raw bar. I just want to really wake up the flavors, use things like compound b utters and make our own in-house dressings. We want to work with local producers to get in local produce, local fish. I want to keep it fun and approachable, but up the game on food. Bring in some local beers. Her goal is 90 days to turn things around. Im focusing on service and will follow through with menu tweaks in the next couple of months. Itll take some time. As for the title, the chef says the restaurant will have the same name, new life.In briefDowntown West Palm Beach will see Aioli, the popular sandwich shop and bakery owned by Michael and Melanie Hackman near the Lake Worth line, open its second shop on Olive Avenue south of Clematis.

It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment. Jon Kabat-Zinn, mindfulness expertFinding inner peace through the practice of mindfulness or many of us, there is the constant pressure to do more, move faster, respond sooner. It can be exhausting and stressful, and as a result you can feel as if you are moving through life on autopilot, devoid of pleasure and joy, simply reacting to obstacles. What if you were given the tools to embrace each moment and take the time to be truly present in your life? And what if those tools helped you reduce stress and improve your overall health and well-being? Through the practice of mindfulness, individuals learn to actively engage in self-care, finding a greater balance and peace of mind. Mindfulness was formalized as a practice for stress reduction in 1979 by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn. He initially developed an eight-week course, now known as Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), as an outpatient program to treat patients suffering from chronic pain. Since that time, thousands have benefited from participating in the program. SEE JMC, 3 F Sheila GriffinProgram Manager and Instructor Calcagnini Center for Mindfulness at Jupiter Medical Center

2 healthy living JANUARY 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLY This Valentines Day, give your failing teeth some 3D loveIn the past, placing dental implants involved a lot of guesswork. Dentists used to rely on traditional black-andwhite X-rays, which displayed only two-dimensional images, inaccurate in size and detail. The dentist could not see the bone, soft tissues or surrounding vital structures beneath the gums, so he would have to approximate the location of surgical implant placement. X-rays are fine for finding decay in teeth, but for dental implant surgery, 3D CT scans are now considered the standard of care in modern dentistry. A CT scan is a volumetric image of a patients teeth, jaws, and surrounding vital structures. It shows, in high resolution and unparalleled detail, structures not visible with traditional X-rays. The 3D CT scans provide both threedimensional and cross-section views that are much more accurate than traditional two-dimensional X-rays. These 3D computerized images provide detailed views of the facial structures that enable a qualified dentist to determine the quantity and quality of bone as well as bone density where the implants will be placed. Vital structures such as nerves and sinuses are precisely located to add a great measure of safety not offered with traditional X-rays. With this information, the dentist can determine the proper treatment approach for each individual patient, including the correct implant type, size and position for optimal implant placement. These scans make implant placement more efficient and predictable while dramatically reducing the time a patient spends in the dental chair. The cone beam CT technology used emits very small amounts of radiation during the CT scan. In fact, the imaging requires less radiation than a traditional X-ray and the cone beam technology emits 80 to 100 times less radiation than a traditional medical grade CT scan of the same area. You are seated in an open area unlike an MRI scan-and the CT scanner moves around your head. The scan will take place in the dentists office and takes only 19 seconds. With a 3D CT scan, the doctor can properly assess your specific case to determine if youre eligible for dental implants, whether bone grafting is necessary and can plan precisely where to place the implants.About Dr. AjmoDr. Jay Ajmo earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Emory University School of Dentistry in 1986.

It can serve as a complement to treatment by helping to lower stress levels that are often a contributing factor to various conditions, including: cancer, high blood pressure, heart disease, asthma, gastrointestinal problems, psoriasis, and auto immune disorders. Doctors also recommend mindfulness to patients dealing with a variety of psychological issues, ranging from sleep and eating disorders to anxiety and depression. The reality is that there is something in the practice of mindfulness for everyone. It can help ameliorate the daily stressors that arise through work, school, family, financial concerns, aging, and more. While mindfulness has proven effective in reducing stress and improving overall well-being, research has also begun to demonstrate how practicing mindfulness can possibly increase grey matter in the brain, improving memory and learning. There has also been research examining the ways in which mindfulness can strengthen the brains ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections. Jupiter Medical Center, in collaboration with the University of Massachusetts Center for Mindfulness, is pleased to offer MBSR training in the Calcagnini Center for Mindfulness on the medical center campus. The Winter 2018 session begins on January 23. It consists of eight classes and one all-day session designed to teach people to be more mindful and to manage the tension of everyday life. This eight-week intensive course will help students: Learn to practice self-care Feel a greater sense of balance Become more creative Experience greater happiness Like most things, the benefits of mindfulness are enhanced through ongoing practice and maintaining a daily commitment. Students discover by the end of the training, that mindfulness has become a way of life that they want to continue, long after the classes end. As such, the Calcagnini Center for Mindfulness offers monthly drop-in sessions for graduates so they can reconnect and reaffirm their commitment to the practice. In addition to Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) classes, the Calcagnini Center offers meditation sessions, workshops and a variety of Integrative Medicine practices and lectures. Since things in our world dont seem to be getting any calmer and the stress continues to build, why not take the opportunity to do something for yourself and your own well-being? As Dr. KabatZin eloquently explained: Give yourself permission to allow this moment to be exactly as it is, and allow yourself to be exactly as you are. The Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction class fee is $500. Scholarships are available, based on students income level and income verification. A six-month payment plan is also available.

4 healthy living JANUARY 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYShopping smart: Grocery store tips PALM BEACH GARDENS MEDICAL CENTERSaving money at the grocery store is something everyone wants to do. Many people feel like they dont know how to do it. Here are some tips that can save money and time. Think BIGBuy fruits and vegetables when they are on sale and buy small amounts more often so it doesnt get thrown away. Reusable produce bags are designed to keep produce fresher longer and are worth investing a few dollars into. Fruits and vegetables can be bought already frozen and last longer! To freeze fresh vegetables, blanch them first. Freeze the extra fruits if you can and use them later. When more expensive products like meats are on sale, buy in bulk. Separate them out into serving sizes and freeze what you will not use right away. It may cost more at the time, but it will save money in the long run.Switch it upPlan your meal around a fruit or a vegetable instead of a meat. Meat is the most expensive part of the meal! Eating more fruits and vegetables gives the body more energy for less money. You can substitute beans, brown rice, or a grain for meat to save money; it costs less, gives the body protein, and will help keep the feeling of fullness longer! Plan at least one meal without meat each week. How do we get enough protein without meat? Add other healthy foods! Eggs and low-fat milk are a good way to get protein. Soy milk is a great choice for lactose intolerance. Low-fat cheese can be added to dishes, but not to smother them. For those of us feeling brave, tofu is easy to use, has a lot of protein, and takes on the flavor profile of the seasonings used on it! Some vegetables like broccoli and spinach have protein too! Read signs and adsCall the stores or check their websites and ads to see what day of the week they usually change their store specials. Shop on the days the specials come out! Just because a sign says 2 for $6 doesnt always mean you have to buy 2 to get it at the discounted prices. Ask a salesperson if you just buy one item if it will still be discounted. If the item happens to be a pantry staple, go ahead and stock up on it! Cut ting coupons from ads can be very helpful. You dont have to go coupon wild, but if there is an item already on your list, its worth the few extra minutes to look through the daily ads to find a coupon.Compare pricesCompare prices and the number of servings for canned versus fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables. This makes sure you get the most for your money when stocking up. Look at the unit price on the store shelf label to help you compare. A bigger package isnt always the best deal. Look at the labels that have the price per ounce to see what the best deal is. The smaller the price per ounce, the better. Store brands usually have the same ingredients as the big name brands. Check the labels and save money with the store brands. If your local store has a discount or a club card, sign up for it. Most discount cards only require an address or telephone number to get started.Dont get into a trouble zoneMake a list and stick to it. Planning meals ahead makes a list easy to put together. Sticking to the list saves you money. Only buy what you need to make the meals you planned. Dont go to the grocery store hungry or you will load up with junk! This costs you more money!! Eat a light snack before you go, otherwise its very hard to stick to your list. Be careful with convenience products, such as single serving sizes, pre-made meals, or pre-cut vegetables. These cost more because the work has already been done for you. The time you spend to make these items is less than the extra money you are spending on them.Buy local foodCheck out the local farmers markets. They accept food stamp cards and have cheap local produce. You can also bargain with most vendors. Try getting better deals at the end of their work day. Always buy produce in season to get the most for your money. If you have been advised by your physician to follow certain dietary restrictions to improve your health and wellbeing, we can help.

Florida is a hub in the opiod crisis. In a report published by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement in November 2017, it states 5,725 opioid-related deaths were reported, which is a 35 percent increase (1,483 more) over 2015. The opioids were identified as either the cause of death or merely present in the decedent. This is an epidemic, a disease that does not discriminate. It does not care about your education level or the balance in your bank account. Does not care if you are gay or straight. Religion not an issue, it effects Christians, Muslims, Jews and anyone in between. Whether you are a Trump supporter or a Never Trumper it can affect you and your family. Many will recall a coach or a college professor telling you to look to your left or right and one of those people wont make the team, pass the class or will drop out. The same principle applies to the opioid crisis. Look to your left, look to your right one of these persons will either have a problem with opioids or a family member or close friend. It is that prevalent. Statistics show that in 2016 there are close to 64,000 opioid related deaths in the United States. Its estimated that 23 percent of heroin users develop an opioid addiction, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.Acupuncture to prevent opioid addictionSo where does acupuncture come into play with the opioid crisis? It can come in on the front end to avoid the addiction ever starting and on the back in to treat an ongoing addiction. Many abusers of opioids start out as patients with pain. Either pain from an injury or illness. Opioids are shown to actually change the receptors in the brain to create the addiction. So addiction sets in very easily and most people do not intentionally abuse the drug but they are driven by the addiction and the firing of nerve receptors in the brain. WHO, World Health Organization, recognizes acupuncture as an effective means to treat both chronic and acute pain. The United States is well behind European countries in the accepted use of acupuncture. It should be the first go to for acute pain to prevent chronic pain ever occurring. There is no addiction to acupuncture or adverse side effects when performed by a properly trained licensed Acupuncture Physician that is certified by NCCAOM. Many patients come into my office that have been on opioids for 10-plus years, and while they are not an addict, they also do not get the pain relief from the opioids any longer and therefore dosages must be increased. These chronic pain suffers are amazed to find that after a few months of consistent acupuncture treatment they have more pain relief than years of opioid use. Most will experience a 75 percent to 90 percent decrease in pain. Acupuncture in the treatment of opioid addictionOnce opioid addiction has set in, it is one of the hardest addictions to break. Everyones fight with the addiction is different and no blanket treatment or program has proven to be effective. Acupuncture focuses on the individual and treats each individual based on the way the addiction has affected that person. There is a nationally recognized program, NADA, which is used in many treatment centers to augment western treatment. However, it is underutilized especially here in Florida where many insurers do not cover the treatment. Acupuncture treatment for opioid addiction focuses on the physical aspect of the addiction along with the emotional component. Opioid addiction is multileveled. Depending on how long the addiction has been present and how much of a toll it has taken on that individuals life will determine the level of treatment needed. Regardless, acupuncture is a much-needed and effective tool in the treatment of opioid addiction and in the prevention. fdle.state.fl.us 2016 Annual Report Drugs Identified in Deceased Persons by Medical ExaminerNational Institute on Drug Abuse.

6 healthy living JANUARY 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com ADVERTISING SUPPLEMENT TO FLORIDA WEEKLYRun, dont walk, to the DASH diet for help preventing and treating high blood pressure NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHFor the eighth consecutive year, U.S. News and World Report has ranked the DASH Diet developed by the National Institutes of Health as the best overall diet among nearly 40 it reviewed. The announcement came just as new research suggests that combining DASH, or Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, with a low-sodium diet has the potential to lower blood pressure as well as or better than many anti-hypertension medications. With its focus on vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy and lean proteins, DASH tied this year for best overall diet and was ranked No. 1 in the healthy eating and heart disease prevention categories. According to the World Health Organization, hypertension, more commonly referred to as high blood pressure, is the most common chronic condition worldwide. It is a major risk factor for heart disease, affects 1 billion people and accounts for 1 in 8 deaths each year. Researchers funded by NIHs National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute developed DASH to prevent and treat high blood pressure, but the diet also has proven highly effective in lowering blood cholesterol. The consistent high rankings of DASH over the years bode well for the way the diet is received and adopted, not just by health professionals, but also by the public at large, said Janet de Jesus, registered dietitian and program officer at NHLBIs Center for Translation Research and Implementation Science. This is especially gratifying now that new research underscores the significant blood-pressure lowering effects of a reduced intake of sodium in combination with the DASH diet. Previous research has shown that people who follow the DASH diet may be able to reduce their blood pressure by a few points in just two weeks. Over time, their systolic blood pressure (the top number in a blood pressure reading) could drop by eight to 14 points, which significantly reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. The positive health effects could be even greater if DASH is combined with a low sodium diet. An NHLBI-funded study of more than 400 adults with prehypertension, or stage 1 high blood pressure, found that the combination of a low-salt diet with DASH substantially lowers systolic blood pressure. Overall, participants who started out with the highest blood pressure achieved the greatest reductions. An interesting aspect of the DASH diet is that the effects are greater in people with hypertension or higher blood pressure at baseline, which is comparable to anti-hypertensive medications, said Dr. Stephen Juraschek, an adjunct assistant professor at Johns Hopkins University and and an instructor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Juraschek is the studys first author. Our results add to the evidence that dietary interventions can be as effective as, or more effective than, antihypertensive drugs in those at highest risk for high blood pressure, he said. Such interventions should be a routine firstline treatment option for such individuals. DASH is not a fad diet, but a healthy eating plan that supports long-term lifestyle changes. Low in saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol, it emphasizes fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy foods, and includes whole grains, poultry, fish, lean meats, beans and nuts. It is rich in potassium, calcium and magnesium, as well as protein and fiber. However, it calls for a reduction in high fat red meat, sweets and sugary beverages. The DASH diet was one of 38 diets reviewed and scored by the U.S. News and World Reports panel of health experts. To receive top ratings a diet must be relatively easy to follow, nutritious, safe, effective for weight loss and protective against diabetes and heart disease.DASH tips for gradual changeMake these changes over a couple of days or weeks to give yourself a chance to adjust and make them part of your daily routine: Add a serving of vegetables at lunch one day and dinner the next, and add fruit at one meal or as a snack. Increase your use of fat-free and low-fat milk products to three servings a day. Limit lean meats to 6 ounces a day (3 ounces a meal), which is about the size of a deck of cards. If you usually eat large portions of meats, cut them back by half or a third at each meal over a couple of days. Work two or more meatless meals into your diet each week. For snacks and desserts, use raw vegetables or fruits; unsalted rice cakes, nuts or seeds; raisins; graham crackers; fat-free or low-fat frozen yogurt; or popcorn with no salt or butt er added. Use fresh, frozen or low-sodium canned vegetables and fruits. Nonsurgical facelift and skin tightening/lifting procedure with PDO threadsAging becomes more rapid and visible when we reach our mid-30s. When we age, the first signs that appear include thinner, loose skin that hangs from the face. The skin becomes loose and sagging because of the loss of collagen and elastin fibers as we grow older.The PDO Thread Lift procedure safely and instantly lifts up loose skin on the face, neck, jawline, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, arms, thighs, abdomen, breasts, buttocks, hips, knees, elbows, chin, and lips with no downtime.Thread Lift is one of the most effective ways to lift the loose skin without surgery. As we age, the effects of gravity become more noticeable on our faces, especially as our facial support structure weakens and we lose facial fat. The areas that are generally affected are the eyebrows, areas around the eyes, the cheeks, the jowls and the neck. The result is a longer, more square-shaped and olderlooking face. Traditionally, most people would look into plastic surgery to get a facelift as there werent very effective noninvasive treatments to lift the loose skin. However, now there is an effective nonsurgical option that can lift and contour and suspend the sagging tissues on the face, neck and the body, especially for those that need only minimal to moderate rejuvenation or for those that do not wish to undergo surgical intervention. PDO (polydioxanone) sutures are surgical sutures that are used to perform cardiac surgery. All sutures are FDA-approved and PDO sutures are one of the safest materials that can be used in the body. Your skin will fully absorb the thread within four to six months without leaving any scar tissue. While the sutures are underneath the skin, however, your skin gently reacts to the skin creating a selective inflammatory response to produce collagen to create a longer-lasting result.A lifted appearance can be seen immediately following the treatment, but the results will actually improve in the following days and weeks as collagen stimulation begins.The best part of this entire treatment is that the body naturally absorbs the threads, lasting in 12 to 24 months of results. The thread lift procedure takes 30 minutes to an hour (depending on treatment area/ size). Anesthetic cream is applied to treatment area followed by an insertion of safe and dissolvable threads under the skin. After the procedure, mild swelling for a few days is common. Because there are no cuts or incision required, there is no scarring.We look to manage treatment discomfort as much as possible and use special creams that dramatically reduce the pain of injections. In addition we use anesthetics injected locally. Most patients dont consider it to be a painful treatment however we do advise patients that it may be uncomfortable. PDO Thread Therapy can be used alone or can be combined with other treatments to deliver optimal results eg: Botox, fillers, anti-wrinkle injections, PRP and microneedling.

More, more, more. The more of your body you use in an exercise the more calories your body will burn. Try using your arms more when walking and running, find a cross trainer with moving arms, or get on a rowing machine. Up the ante. Every time you make a change in your workout your body has to adjust and work harder. If youve been walking the same 2 miles at the same pace and incline for the past two years, its time for a change. Adding even 30-second bursts of intensity can boost your calorie burn. Pump up the beat. Music has a way of pushing you and motivating you to keep going. Have you ever noticed how your pace reflects the speed of the music youre listening to during exercise? The more upbeat your music the more energy you will bring to your workout. Show up. You see it all the time in the gym. The lady on the treadmill is texting. The man on the stationary bike is reading the paper. The teen on the rowing machine is just biding time. Stay focused and present in your workout. The more you show up the harder you can push and the more you will get out of it. Cardio first. A small study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research examined four groups: running only, strength training only, running followed by strength training, and strength training followed by running. Researchers found that while all exercisers experienced a strong after burn (a higher rate of calories burned when at rest after exercise) for the two hours after working out, the strength training and run/strength training groups had the highest exercise after burn. Healthy competition. A study by Kansas State University researchers found that young women who trained with a teammate they perceived to be a better performer were able to quadruple their workout time and intensity. Working out with someone stronger and faster than you often helps you push through barriers. Jump for joy. As kids we just couldnt keep still. As adults we rarely have both feet off the ground unless were lying down. Jumping exercises, known as plyometrics, are high intensity and get your heart rate up quickly, increasing your calorie burn. Proper form is essential when performing plyometrics to reduce the risk of injury. Consider taking a boot camp class or consulting a personal trainer on correct form. Cold, hard facts. A British study showed that individuals who drank refrigerated water (39 degrees F) worked out 25 percent longer than those who consumed the same amount of warmer water. Smell the roses. Changes in terrain and weather make outside the better choice for exercise. Research shows that individuals burn 10 percent more calories when walking or running outdoors rather than on a treadmill at the same speed. The homestretch. Stretching not only helps your muscles recover but it also helps prevent overuse injuries and tight muscles. Taking the extra 5-10 minutes to stretch can help you work out longer and harder during your next session.
