Teachers should be paid by their students, after all. Holding undergraduate and graduate degrees from Harvard University, Professor Adler specializes in U.S. urban immigration and criminology, subjects hes studied, taught and written about for more than 30 years from his seat at the University of Florida, in Gainesville. His books are published by the Harvard University Press. I made all the right preparations before I got on the phone with such an eminent scholar: did push-ups to clear my mind. Donned my most scholarly-looking spectacles. Furrowed my brow in the studious manner expected of academics and those in the know. I even considered reciting Miltons Paradise Lost backward to my yard chickens as a warm-up exercise, but the hens might have stopped laying eggs, in protest (#metoo-noeggs). They dont like to be harassed anymore than anybody else. I hold a degree from one of the Ivies myself, but thats likely the result of a dumb mistake made in the admissions office. No doubt some clerk clicked my name right next to the name he should have chosen like that bonehead in Hawaii who clicked the Under Attack icon right next to the This Is Just a Test icon. Oops. You cant call it back, pal. So, I made it through the big front gate at Columbia University on 116th and Broadway and somehow earned a masters in journalism. Actually I double-majored, earning a masters at Cannons bar on 107th, as well. Cannons was full of immigrants an Irishman with one eye who had his Social Security checks mailed to the bar; a Russian with scars on his head; and a Texas woman who grew up on a cattle ranch, came to New York as a fashion model and singer, became wealthy, and somehow ended up a day-drinker at Cannons (any Texan who crosses the state line should be considered an immigrant to the United States). Looking back, I realize it helped prepare me for a conversation with Professor Adler, who was just like those Cannonians. He talked a lot, he said the most interesting things in the world, he was articulate (unlike many Cannonians) and even eloquent (all Cannonians are eloquent, even when theyre too drunk to speak clea rly). As it turns out, he has his own immigrant family stories the stories of eastern European or Russian Jews. Fifty years ago, Harvard wouldnt have accepted me (with my) background, he told me. Many of us have such backgrounds. Heres how: Some 24 million people arrived mostly poor in America in a 35-year period beginning about 1890 and ending after World War I, in 1924. For more than half of all Americans today, the first person in our families to arrive here was part of that great immigration, the professor said. They often immigrated from rough, poor, nondemocratic places, and the powers that be didnt like it. Immigrants then tended to have nothing, were uneducated, unwashed, and spoke something besides English. So people complained and officials acted. The first federal immigration system was established in 1924, Professor Adler said. Government officials thought, Who do we want to keep out, and who do we want to admit in sizeable numbers? So they set up a quota system based on the make-up of the country back in 1890 (before the big immigration began). The quota system was self consciously xenophobic, based on having large numbers of western Europeans, Norwegians for example, but not others. We wanted more people with blond hair and blue eyes. Displaying attitudes still too common today, many Americans immediately assumed crimes were the work of hotblooded immigrants prone to hateful acts. And in 1925 or so, they blamed Italians and Sicilians, in particular, along with other swarthy newcomers. The Know Nothing movement of nativists and bigots born in the face of Irish immigration in the 1850s sprang up anew in other forms, in the first decades of the 20th century. Then another migration started the great exodus of rural Southern blacks into northern cities, people looking for jobs and better opportunities than their sharecropping, cotton-picking lives could provide. So these other groups suddenly got whiter: Sicilians, Greeks and others who were defined by some subsets of Americans as a threat a biological threat, a threat to social order, as people who were lazy, as people who committed crimes those folks were off the hook. An explicit argument used today by President Trump to restrict immigration dates to the mid-19th century, at least: Immigrants bring crime in disproportionate numbers. But thats 170-year-old fake news. My area of expertise is criminal behavior. So I can tell you, statistically youre much more likely to be murdered by your friends and family than by a stranger, an immigrant, noted the professor. Some of these things are knowable, he added. We can know statistically, generally, who commits a crime. We can also know if immigrants take American jobs; the short answer is, No. Although we persist in vilifying them particularly those from any of the 54 African countries, or from Haiti, or from the Americas history shows clearly: Immigrantsrus. Our parents, grandparents and great grandparents got here, often illegally or with no quotas, over the strong objections of American nationalists. Who were wrong. Now, every time any of us looks at a Haitian or a Salvadoran or an African, just to name a few, were looking at our grandparents or great grandparents. To think otherwise is not to think, only to react. So how would you treat your greatgrandparents? I know how Id treat mine. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

OPINIONObscene distortionsIs it me, or has anyone else noticed that when someone is exposed for wrongdoing, the responses all seem similar? No matter whether someone is overheard saying something racist, credibly accused of sexual harassment or caught in some incredibly egregious act, if the person decides that its futile to dispute the charge, his (or her) apology looks like it came from the same mea culpa template. Somewhere in each one, there will be words to the effect that he or she has had a lapse in judgment, is sorry that he or she caused harm or distress and, this is my favorite of all, This is not the person I am. Its not just individuals who eat the very same humble pie, but corporations, too, when theyre caught in some awful act. Lets take a certain hospital in Baltimore, the University of Maryland Medical Center, which on a very cold night was taped patient dumping. A passer-by shot video of an incoherent woman being taken out by security guards, wearing only a flimsy convalescent gown, and abandoned at a bus stop. Had the guy not interceded, theres every reason to believe that she would have frozen to death. Sure enough, when the facilities administrator realized that the inhumane treatment had been inescapably proven, he had no choice but to face a news conference. And what did he say? You guessed it: We firmly believe what occurred Tuesday night does not reflect who we are. Im left with the impression that when someone uses the not who I am phrase, thats exactly who they are. All the person is trying to do is wriggle out of the mess. And that explains why everyones grovels all resemble each other. Many, if they can afford it, quickly go out and hire a crisis manager, a glorified PR person. Their loads of Crisis Response Altering Perceptions all sound the same. For that they get big bucks. Then we have those who never say theyre sorry. They have decided never to show any remorse about their disgusting comments or conduct. Im thinking, of course, of a certain president of the United States. He has concluded that even hinting at second thoughts shows weakness, and from a tactical point of view, hes usually right. So when he states something thats blatantly racist, he can swat the outrage away by denying he ever said what he said, even when there are witnesses. Im not a racist. I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed, that I can tell you. Yup, hes said that. And his base laps it up. Then you have the accessories before and after the fact, accomplices who filter their ev ery utte rance through their ambition. They are the ones who curry favor with the president because theyve calculated that it will be in their selfinterest. First, two GOP senators who were in the room Tom Cotton and David Perdue insisted they do not recall the president saying those comments specifically. Now Perdue has gotten braver, declaring that Trump didnt say sh**hole, it was a gross misrepresentation. Apparently, he heard sh**house. How absurd is that? Our social and political discourse has gotten that moronic. Polite or impolite, its still pathetic. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. Trumps s***stormThe world fell on Donald Trumps head yet again when he said in a White House meeting that we should be trying to get immigrants from Norway rather than s***hole countries in the Third World. The media has treated Trumps remarks, made in a heated exchange with senators over a proposed immigration deal, as an explicit confession of racism. Why else would he scorn immigrants from places like Haiti and Somalia, while yearning for those from lily-white Scandinavia? He was almost surely trying to say that we should pick immigrants for skills (he reportedly mentioned Asia as well as Norway), but typically stated his position in the crudest terms possible. The ensuing controversy has created a cottage industry of TV and newspaper commentators declaring proudly that they came from s***hole countries, and implying that as long as we are welcoming enough people from distressed countries, our immigration policy is on track. This discussion is largely informed by a romantic view of the experience of the early 20th century, which is, unsurprisingly, not applicable 100 years later. The economy has changed. We no longer can toss low-skilled immigrants into the maw of an insatiable manufacturing sector. The fact is that immigrants from rich countries tend to do better here than immigrants from poor countries, and level of education is a key factor. According to the Migration Policy Institute, nearly half of Asian immigrants are employed in management, business, science or the arts, higher than the proportion of the native born. The median income of households headed by Asian immigrants is $70,000, higher than that of the native born. The median income of a household headed by an Indian immigrant is an astonishing $105,000. This is largely because their level of education is off the charts. Three-quarters of Indian immigrants have a college degree or more. The Indian immigrants dont reflect the norm back home, where the average person has less than six years of schooling, but we are skimming off a more skilled element of the population. Critics of Trumps comments rightly point out that immigrants from subSaharan Africa, reportedly part of the s***hole argument, are doing pretty well here. But it depends on the country. About 60 percent of Nigerian immigrants have a college degree, and more than 50 percent work in management positions. In contrast, only 11 percent of Somalis have a college degree, and half are in poverty. The numbers for immigrants from El Salvador, to pick a country also reportedly part of the White House discussion, are less encouraging. According to the Center for Immigration Studies, more than half of Salvadoran immigrants dont have a high-school degree, and half are living in poverty or near it. This doesnt mean they dont work hard, or deserve to be insulted, but they are struggling. We are blessed to live in a country that many millions around the world want to move to. This affords us the luxury to be more selective in our immigration policy and, like Canada or Australia, establish a system emphasizing skills suited to a 21st-century economy. Some might be from Norway, some might be from s***holes all should be prepared to thrive.

KATIE KREISChiropractic Physician Full Physical Therapy Facility Daughters book focuses on Holocaust survivors story BY STEVEN J. SMITHssmith@ oridaweekly.comSometimes a truly uplifting story can emerge from even the darkest days of perhaps mankinds most horrific event; so it is with Debbie Bornstein Holinstats book, Survivors Club: The True Story of a Very Young Prisoner of Auschwitz. Mrs. Holinstat, a veteran news producer with MSNBC, was to speak to the Executive Women of the Palm Beaches Foundation at the Palm Beach Gardens Marriott for a luncheon to celebrate the book, which she co-wrote with her father, Holocaust survivor Michael Bornstein. It was scheduled to roughly coincide with National Holocaust Remembrance Day, which will occur on Jan. 27. As a news producer with MSNBC for the last 18 years, I write a lot of what the anchors say, Mrs. Holinstat said. Youre also in on the decisions of what news stories are covered on a given day. So writing a book as well was a challenge. Survivors Club is my first book and Im happy to say it made The New York Times bestseller list the week it came out. Survivors Club chronicles the experiences of Mr. Bornstein, who as a fouryear-old boy managed to evade death in the infamous death camp of Auschwitz a murder mill where more than one million Jews were killed during the Holocaust, according to the books preface. Ive wanted to write my fathers story for as long as I can remember, Mrs. Holinstat said. But he just wasnt ready. It was only after finding information about his survival at a Holocaust museum in Israel and a Bar Mitzvah project request from his oldest grandchild, my nephew Jake, that made him finally decide to get his experience down in writing. An initial Google search to known video of the Auschwitz liberation in which she knew her father appeared led to a disturbing website. We clicked on a thumbnail photo that took us to a Holocaust deniers site, Mrs. Holinstat said. It was using his picture to say that Jews lied, saying the children were killed on arrival. This was a real wakeup call to my father, making him realize he had to come forward and set the record straight. Mr. Bornsteins story actually begins before he was taken to Auschwitz. It starts in his hometown of Zarki, Poland, which the Nazis converted into an open ghetto, where the Jewish residents were held under a sort of house arrest. My dads father, Israel, set up a bribery scheme inside the ghetto, Mrs. Holinstat said. He bribed a particular guard to make the conditions more bearable for all of the Jewish people. That bribery scheme saved a lot of lives in Zarki and most likely saved my fathers life too, because it delayed his transfer to Auschwitz until much later in the war, in July of 1944. She said the average lifespan of a child in Auschwitz was two weeks, but through a series of miracles, luck and courage shown by his mother and grandmother, she said, he survived there for half a year before the camp was liberated by the Soviets. Mrs. Holinstat felt perhaps the biggest challenge in writing the book which is geared primarily for junior high school students was juggling her busy work and home schedules to find the time. I have three kids of my own, she said. It was the most emotionally exhausting labor of love I have ever put my heart into, in my entire life. I write difficult news pieces all the time, telling other peoples personal stories that can be horrific. But this was personally draining. Mrs. Holinstat said she started writing her fathers story in the third person, but quickly realized that was a mistake. It made for a disconnect, she said. It was as if I was intentionally distancing myself from the story. I came to see that the only way to do it justice was to write it in the first person, in my fathers voice, the voice Ive known all my life. So I had to literally visualize myself in his shoes, in that horrible place. It was really difficult. But it was worth it. I had to get it right. Collaborating with her father, she added, was a gratifying experience. Working side by side with my dad was a journey Ill never forget, she said. I liked knowing that while he was doing this most difficult process of remembering his own past, I got to do that with him be there for all the hard conversations, including his recollections of what happened to him after the war. I was really proud of the courage he had in confessing some of the events he experienced, including sexual assault and bullying. And I appreciated that he trusted me with this information and to retell it in an appropriate way. Mrs. Holinstat hopes readers will come away from her book with a sense of remembrance for those who suffered in the Holocaust. I also hope theyll have a sense of optimism, she said. My dads story has a happy ending and unlike a lot of Holocaust stories, this book is about humanity and what a person can overcome.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESLike cats and dogs BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationMy dog Harper thinks cats are to chase. Shes the first of our dogs who didnt grow up with a cat in the household. I introduced her to our neighbors cat when she was a young puppy, but unfortunately, I didnt have easy access to other cats she could meet, and she never learned to live compatibly with them. Thats a problem when we visit friends and family with cats. Harper growls and barks when she sees them, and she wants nothing more than to chase them away. I keep warning her that one of these days we will have a cat again ourselves, so she had better prepare herself for the idea. The idea that cats and dogs dont get along is a common belief Harper certainly believes it but its not necessarily true. According to a survey by the American Pet Products Association, 46 percent of households with pets have multiple types of animals. Cats and dogs are the most common combination, found in 32 percent of pet-owning households. There is always the potential for conflict between two or three, if you count the humans in the mix species who have differing habits and communication styles, but pets living together can become good friends. Ive seen it with our previous pets and those of people I know. In homes where the humans are away all day, a dog and cat can keep each other company and often play and sleep together, groom each other, and team up to get in trouble. If youre introducing a pet of a different species into your family, the following tips can help the meeting go smoothly and, ideally, a friendship will develop. Introduce them first by scent, not sight. Isolate a new cat in a small room for a few days with everything he needs: food, water, litter box, toys. His scent will drift out to your dog, and the cat can get used to your dogs scent as well. After two or three days, let the cat explore the house while the dog is in the yard or on a walk with someone else. Maintain control. Its never a good idea to just turn animals loose and hope for the best. Thats a recipe for fear, anxiety and stress on the part of all involved. Have your dog on a leash, and make sure your cat has an escape route. Having ample getaway spaces for cats, such as tall cat trees or gates with a cutout that the cats fits through but not the dog, is essential, says Mikkel Becker, lead animal trainer for Fear Free Pets and co-author of the upcoming book From Fearful to Fear Free. A dragline attached to a harness can help to prevent boltand-chase sequences during the settling-in period, Becker says. Until youre sure pets are getting along, supervise interactions and separate them when youre not around. Hand out treats liberally to both parties. This worked well with Harper recently when we were visiting family with cats. She was rewarded every time she looked away from the cat as well as for not growling or barking. You want both pets to think that being in the presence of the other is a good thing. Dog trainer Liz Palika has fostered many litters of kittens with the aid of her English shepherds. Her best piece of advice in one word? Patience. A friendship between a dog and a cat cannot be forced, she says. Let them gradually get to know each other and provide safe places where they can get away from each other. Pets of the Week>> Tucker is a 1-yearold male potbellied pig that weighs 60 pounds.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 NEWS A11 Acupuncture for HypertensionQuestion: How can Acupuncture help with my hypertension? Answer: Hypertension, or high blood pressure, affects more than one in three Americans. Acupuncture offers a whole body treatment plan to health and wellness. Therefore, it is a great natural approach to address high blood pressure and related conditions. The stimulation of specific acu-points sends messages to the brain to regulate the cardiovascular system, thus helping to lower blood pressure. Acupuncture can improve circulation and increase oxygen levels throughout the body, which will help to regulate your blood pressure. Many people with hypertension go undiagnosed and others are prescribed medication without any attention to lifestyle changes that can reduce blood pressure thereby removing the need for medication. Acupuncture, as part of a proactive preventative approach to healthcare can maintain your bodys homeostasis so hypertension is never a cause for concern. Hypertension can lead to heart attacks and many serious health problems. It is incredibly important to do all you can to maintain a healthy lifestyle and lower your risk of heart related illness. Your Acupuncture Physician will devise a treatment plan specific to your needs, which may include herbal formulas, nutritional guidance and heart-healthy exercises such as aerobic and deep breathing practices.ADVERTISEMENT ACUPUNCTURE HEALTH AND HEALINGChristy Bongiovanni Acupuncture Physician Diplomate of Oriental Medicine Holistic Health Coach 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 Ask the Health & Beauty Experts 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.

Bruce wrote a book specically focused on helping women understand what he feels they need to know as they contemplate divorce from a controlling, manipulative, or narcissistic husband.

With the start of February American Heart Month just days away, this is the perfect time to take stock of your cardiovascular health, make sure youre doing all you can to prevent heart disease, and become familiar with the options available to you, should you need medical intervention. The cardiovascular team at Jupiter Medical Center is one of the most experienced and highly trained in South Florida. Many of our physicians have more than 20 years of experience. We are not only focused on providing the highest quality care, but we also strive to provide compassionate and personalized attention to every patient. We aim to listen carefully and address all concerns thoughtfully and thoroughly. Additionally, members of our cardiac catheterization team take pride in our concierge approach to care, ensuring that each patient is treated as if he or she is the only patient. Jupiter Medical Center is working with Mount Sinai Heart New York one of the premier cardiovascular centers in the county to transform cardiovascular care in our community. As a result of our strategic partnership, Mount Sinai Heart New York at Jupiter Medical Center enables cardiologists here in South Florida and those based in New York to collaborate in providing world-class care to patients in our community. This partnership guides nearly all facets of our cardiac care, including interventional cardiology, cardiac rehabilitation, noninvasive imaging, congestive heart failure, wellness and prevention, research and education. In addition, patients and families benefit from research and practices pioneered at Mount Sinai New York. Furthermore, patients requiring highly complex care offered only at Mount Sinai New York benefit from the collaboration, as they are able to travel to New York for seamless care from worldclass physicians. In turn, patients based in New York can receive the same level of high-quality care they experience at home, while spending time here in South Florida. In addition, plans are underway to establish an open-heart surgery program here at Jupiter Medical Center in 2018. We know its crucial to have top-quality cardiac care minutes from home, when seconds really count. The medical center recently reached a significant milestone when the Jupiter Medical Center Foundation announced a $5 million gift from retired Sprint Nextel executive Tim Donahue and his wife, Jayne Donahue, to support the open-heart program. Once it is established, the new program will be named the Timothy and Jayne Donahue Cardiac Surgery Program at Jupiter Medical Center in their honor. Offering open-heart surgery, which has been a community need for many years, will enable us to provide a full range of cardiovascular services in one convenient location. Additional services offered will include complex coronary interventions, such as the nonsurgical treatment of valve disease, advanced electrophysiology, and cardiac ablation. While we are proud to be able to offer outstanding cardiac care, we also are focused on helping our community remain heart healthy and avoid the need for surgical intervention whenever possible. We see more and more patients seeking preventive cardiac care, and we make the following recommendations to maintain good heart health: Eat a heart-healthy diet of vegetables, fruit, low-fat dairy, fiber-rich whole grains, and lean protein Maintain a healthy weight Get at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise (like brisk walking) at least five days a week Dont smoke Manage your stress Know your cholesterol and blood pressure levels and work to control them Work to control your diabetes, if you suffer from it Follow up with your physician if you have any notable heart health concerns At Jupiter Medical Center, we are fully committed to meeting the needs of the community and continuing to expand the range of medical services needed to make sure our community is heart healthy.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY Genese Gene Vertus Director of information technology for the Sarasota-based DSE Inc.One of five children born to educators in a small Haitian mountain town that depended on subsistence farming, Gene Vertus arrived in Miami on Christmas, 1985, at the age of 9, with his parents, three sisters and a brother. Speaking only Haitian Creole and French, all five children learned English, adapted to American schools and customs, graduated from high schools in the Miami area and then earned college degrees and advanced degrees. My father wanted us to come to the greatest country in the world to get an education, and from there to become whoever we wanted to become. Who would not want to take this opportunity to be in this great country? We thought at the time, this is a country of hope, of being able to become whatever you want to become if you apply yourself. If you put your mind to it. Thats what we thought then, and thats what I still think. Among the challenges they encountered was hostility not just from Anglo-Americans but from African-Americans and others who saw them as invaders, Mr. Vertus recalls. But he became as American as any a fine basketball player who started on his high school team, North Miami High (he now coaches young teens), a trumpet player (hes an acquaintance if not a friend of Wynton Marsalis), and a fine student. We went through the process of getting visas then becoming temporary residents, then permanent residents, then American citizens. I didnt think of the process as a burden at all. Now with two high school-age sons, an undergraduate degree in Information Technology from Florida International University and a masters in biblical studies, Mr. Vertus is an elder at Mt. Hermon Ministries in Fort Myers under the leadership of Dr. William Glover. For eight years before that, he served as pastor at a church in the Haitian community, founding the nonprofit Passion Rescue Mission in 2009 to help children in the village of his birth, the year before a calamitous earthquake struck Haiti. Now, hes built a school that anchors the town, and named it after his late father, a lifelong missionary and educator who, like many Haitians, thought education was the greatest hope for his children to lead better lives: the Genecoit Vertus School of Excellence. Without access to this free education more than 90 percent of these children would have no education at all, Mr. Vertus says. Not just a few children, either. About 225 are currently enrolled in kindergarten through sixth grade. Using donations to Passion Rescue Mission, we supply school uniforms, books, tennis shoes and meals. Sometimes the kids could go a couple days without a plate of food, so we try to put an end to that. When Mr. Vertus heard his birthplace country described disparagingly by the president recently, he shrugged it off and tried to move on, he said. And he talked to his American-born sons about it, too. I reminded them of what others have said: that no matter what people say about you, you have dignity. You have worth. Someone might think your dad and your mom came from a shithole country, but stop and look at us: Look at what we have accomplished! As an American and a Haitian, he insists, theres no place for bitterness about such comments. If I am bitter, I let them define who I am. And I will not let that happen. We supply school uniforms, books, tennis shoes and meals. Sometimes the kids could go a couple days without a plate of food, so we try to put an end to that.Gene Vertus is an IT professional, father, husband and church elder. This is a country of hope, he says.SEE TEMPEST, A13 ly became part of the national debate whether they wanted to or not, either because of their countries of origin or because of their associations with those countries, in particular Haiti. We know the challenges: Haiti suffers from economic poverty, from very harmful and destructive foreign policies starting from its birth as a country, and from sometimes disastrous natural cataclysms (such as the 2010 earthquake), says Skyler Badenoch, a former Peace Corps volunteer who worked in West Africa for a decade before founding the nonprofit Hope for Haiti, based in Naples. We also know that only tells part of the story. The other part is this: Theyre incredibly talented and smart, incredibly resilient and generous a people who just dont have the same opportunities we have here. Like so many others, therefore, they make extraordinary and loyal Americans, given the chance.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 NEWS A13 Mack BernardPalm Beach County commissionerWhen Mack Bernard was a little boy, everybody around him kept telling him how lucky he would be to escape Haiti and come to the United States. Without parents they vanished from his life when he was 3 he and his sister, two years older, lived in the care of an aunt and a grandmother who did everything they could to make that happen. On six occasions, beginning when I was 4, I tried and failed to get a visa, he recalls. Finally in 1986, when I was 10, I succeeded the same year Baby Doc Duvalier (a Haitian leader) was exiled, and the country went into chaos. So my aunt sent my sister and me together. She was 12. We took the Eastern Airlines flight on Sept. 12, 1986, and a taxi picked us up at the Miami airport and dropped us at the house of a friend in Delray Beach. Life in America began with a struggle faced by other immigrants speaking other languages from many other places over time: to learn English and become American in style and appearance. Some people in the community didnt have a good impression of Haitians, and even AfricanAmerican kids would fight the Haitian kids, he says. When he started middle school at 14, he and his sister began working together, going door to door to solicit subscriptions for a daily newspaper. We wanted to be grown up, to take care of the bills, he explains. At Atlantic High School he joined the ROTC program and did dual enrollment, graduating in 1995 and enrolling at Florida State University in Tallahassee, where his sister had already started her higher education. The siblings lived in a tiny apartment together and Mack loaded up the classes on his schedule each semester, sometimes taking as many as 21 credit hours. I didnt have the money to keep going to school, so I finished my degree in two years, he says earning a joint major in political science and criminal justice.Mack Bernard was only getting started. He returned to Palm Beach County, opening a shoe store in West Palm, then decided to enter law school. I wanted a chance at the American dream, he says simply. A bigger dream than the shoe store provided. Winning acceptances to the law schools at both Florida State and the University of Florida, he chose Gainesville, and never looked back. In three years, he earned not only a law degree, but a masters in tax law. Back in Palm Beach County, he decided to go into public service to contribute heart and soul to the fabric of his adopted community and country, he says. His choices reflect a drive to lead from the beginning: He joined the chamber of commerce with other clubs and organizations. He volunteered for community events and became a Delray Beach city commissioner in 2008. Then he went on to become a state legislator for three years before winning a seat as the first black man on the Palm Beach County board of commissioners, where he is now vice mayor. With his wife, hes raising his three Americanborn daughters, ages 10, 9 and 3. When a public protest against disparaging comments aimed at Africans and Haitians took place earlier this month, I had my wife and three girls there, marching, he says. I want my daughters to understand their civic duties. The comments didnt change anything for him, however. Mr. Bernards feelings about the United States remain the same as they once were. For me, I consider this, America, the greatest country on Earth. All the dreams I had about America when I came here thats the same way I feel about it, still today. There is nowhere on this Earth that a young kid who wasnt raised with natural parents could come at the age of 10 and reach the American dream in terms of going to school, working hard and going to college, becoming a lawyer and still having the opportunity to serve, and be a father and husband. Yes we have some faults; but the American dream is still alive. I didnt have the money to keep going to school, so I finished my degree in two years.Who are our immigrants, either African or Haitian? Here, you will meet a Haitian-born woman, schooled and raised in Miami, who climbed to the highest point in Africa more than 19,000 feet above a continent with 54 countries two years ago, on a Fulbright scholarship in Tanzania; and the man, her brother, who returned to his poor and underserved Haitian village to build a school for 250 children with no other access to education. Youll meet a man who arrived at Miami International Airport from Haiti with only his 12-year-old older sister in tow, began working at the age of 14, and eventually graduated from the University of Florida Law School to later become a state legislator and now a Palm Beach County commissioner. Youll meet a woman with a selfdescribed posh accent who decided with her husband to surrender all the considerable comforts and assets of their lives in South Africa the government required them to abandon what they had at the time to bring their two very young children out of a nation hobbled by apartheid and into the greatest country on earth. And youll meet the lawyer whose father, a professor from the African west-coast nation of Liberia, saved the family by moving them back to the U.S. before a violent civil war so his son could take advantage of the American dream on behalf of those who never had the chance. At various times, Americans have demonstrat ed doubt and anger or good cheer and bonhomie toward our immigrants. In each generation, weve offered them either a generous welcome or a sharp rejection; either significant misunderstanding and resentment, or a progressive embrace of the men, women and children seeking better lives here. For more than half our immigrant history weve too frequently demonized immigrants themselves. We still do. Demonizing a nation of immigrants today is somewhere between ironic and perverse, says Jeff Adler, a Harvardtrained historian, author and professor of U.S. urban immigration and criminology at the University of Florida. As (others) have suggested, some of the people who have voiced support or tacit support or even a passive defense of rejecting people by nationality, are the grand or great-grandchildren of immigrants who would have been excluded from the United States if the same ideas had been presented and acted upon when their families came. Immigrants to the U.S. today are dwarfed in number by those who arrived once, even within the living memories of some citizens. In a single 35-year period beginning in 1890, 24 million immigrants entered the country. The numbers were huge, says Professor Adler. This wont be true in 10 years, but its still true today, in 2018: For more than 50 percent of Americans, the first person in our family to come to the U.S. can be traced to this immigration. Making generalizations about who our immigrants were then or are now is risky at best, but two things become significantly clear in asking how they got here, why they came, and how their view of the U.S. might have changed since they arrived: First, theyre among the hardest workers we have. And second: This is the greatest country on the planet, in their minds, with the broadest and most accessible opportunities for those who arrive with little in their possession. No other country would do, and there is no question of leaving. To a person, they are fierce and staunchly loyal patriots.

A14 NEWS WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY Sunny Lubner Community volunteer and actorBorn and raised in a family of Orthodox Jews who reached South Africa from Lithuania and Israel, Sunny Lubner grew up in a sophisticated city, Johannesburg. Her circumstances were more than comfortable. We had three house servants, she recalls. When I came to the United States, I didnt even know how to make tea. Do you boil the water or do you boil the milk? But there was a problem: Ms. Lubner, like her parents and her husband, Clive Lubner, was a moralist. I was a young mother of two, about 10 minutes into my 20s, when my husband and I decided we were not going to raise our children under an apartheid regime. We never dreamed for a minute that democracy would come to South Africa someday, or that we would have such a wonderful father of that democracy, Nelson Mandela. We left in 1978 when he was in prison, where he languished for 27 years. Our daughter was 5 and our son was 3. The first thing that struck me when we arrived here, was that you people drive on the wrong side of the road. Sunny and Clive might have gone a number of places with their two young children Paris, London, Rome but they chose the United States without hesitation. They came poor, too. South Africa required them to surrender any assets and all the wealth they had, if they chose to leave. So they did, making the moral decision. There was never a question of where we would go, she says. We loved the idea of America, we loved the ideals of Americans. My father, who was a history and civics buff, told me at a young age about the U.S. Constitution. He pointed to the word Happiness has there ever been a country that worried about happiness? Plus, my husband was in business, and America was a place he thought he could succeed. And he did. Now, Clive Lubner and his family own and operate the highly regarded Naplesbased firm, Clive Daniel Home. Daniel is their son. Their daughter, Claudia, works in the family business as well. Getting to that point, and getting to be Americans, wasnt a simple cake walk, even if the Lubners were white and educated with posh accents, Ms. Lubner notes. She learned to make tea, along with everything else. It took them four years just to get green cards, and they had to hire an immigration attorney we couldnt afford at the time to do that. Agonizingly, she chose not to fly home to her fathers funeral because immigration officials might not have let her back in the country, she remembers a heartbreak that hasnt gone away. The day she and Clive and the children got their American citizenship, I sobbed my heart out. They gave each of us an American flag. She recalls of her joy and pride in that moment. Ms. Lubner remains proud of immigrants and proud to be an American immigrant, she says not only from the African continent where 54 nations carry on with distinct cultures and histories, but proud of immigrants from everywhere else, too. She considers immigrants a special breed, characterized in large measure by a willingness to work, and by gratitude. I think immigrants work very hard Im not saying harder than Americans to become contributing members of society. We keep our noses clean. Were so appreciative of living in a democracy. I remember when my children were young, every Fourth of July I would trot out all my flags and caps and pins and everything. Id give them a lecture about how lucky and proud they should be to be Americans. And were all still so proud to call ourselves, Americans. I think immigrants work very hard Im not saying harder than Americans to become contributing members of society. Peter Dennis LawyerPeter Dennis has an immigrant engine in a nativeborn body, so to speak. His father, from the small West African country founded by American slaves in 1822, Liberia, met his mother, an Ohioan, while teaching in the Buckeye state. Mr. Dennis was born in Michigan before his father moved the family back to Africa, to the village where he was an ancestral chief. For young Peter it all started there, living in a village with no electricity, playing in the surrounding rainforest with friends and family members who took care of each other, and never suspecting he would lose them that he would feel compelled throughout his life to succeed as an American on their behalf. Fortuitously, Mr. Dennis dad returned with the family to the U.S., taking a teaching position at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor just ahead of Liberias brutal and bloody civil war that began in 1989. Eventually the family moved to Southwest Florida, where his mothers parents had retired. In looking back in time, he postulates, what happened to me in high school and college and afterward came about because of them, those people I lost. The peaceful, lively temperament of his village, Peter and Amanda Dennis want their children, Benjamin, 9, and Mali, 11, to live in the present but remember the past. Sunny and Clive Lubner surrendered all their assets to bring their children out of apartheid South Africa to the greatest country in the world. SEE DENNIS, A15

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 NEWS A15 Genise VertusPublic school teacherIt was the biggest, best Christmas gift she ever received: to arrive in the United States on Dec. 25, 1985, as a 7-year-old, with four siblings, including Genese Gene Vertus and her parents, a girl out of Haiti in body but never in spirit. I felt like it was a gift to have access to all these educational and economic opportunities we did not have in Haiti. In the (almost 35) years since Ive been here, thats always been my view: How lucky I am. Lucky and sometimes troubled by the cruel and wrong-headed stereotypes some people continue to hold toward Haiti and Haitians. Haiti is the only country in the world that became a country as a result of a successful slave revolt, Ms. Vertus points out, recalling that remarkable New-World moment when slaves on the Caribbean island rejected French rule in a violent upheaval starting in 1791, winning freedom and independence by 1803.So, when I think of Haitians, I think we are the first people to do something no other nation in the world has done. I think we are freedom lovers, we are strong, were a resilient people. And moving forward we need to tell our own stories rather than letting ourselves be stereotyped by those who dont know us and have never been to Haiti. Part of being disrespected is, were not telling our own stories. Consequently, Ms. Vertus explains, shes begun looking for ways to share with the world the story of my people and what we did, starting with childrens literature. What she did personally, or has done so far, is nothing short of remarkable. She had to learn English while going to American public schools in Miami and coming home to a family that spoke Haitian Creole or French around the supper table and at church; she became a stellar student who won a full scholarship out of high school to the University of Miami; she now holds both undergraduate and graduate degrees in psychology, Afro-studies and early education; shes beginning work to earn a doctorate; she teaches public school to struggling children in Athens, Ga. (shes thinking about moving back to Florida, she says); and she won a prestigious Fulbright scholarship to travel to Tanzania in 2016. There, mountaineers guides reinvigorated her deeply held belief that good teachers, great teachers, must be trusted, because they can not only save your life, they can lead you to the top of the world. So I go to Tanzania. What do you do when you go to Tanzania? she asks? You climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, of course. Or course. Well, some climb Mr. Kilimanjaro, and some dont make it. The thing is 19,341 feet above sea level, towering above the continent of Africa. I actually paid to do it, like a sevenday expedition, she says, breaking into incredulous laughter. Climbing Kily was the hardest thing I have ever done in my life here is this little black Haitian girl on top of Africa. Its the coldest I have ever been. And whats the one thing that got me up Kily all the way? The guides. They believed I could do it more than I believed I could do it. So not knowing what I was getting myself into, I trusted them. I knew they were going to do whatever it took to get me up that mountain. Im a teacher, and its so important to me if we can just get our students to trust us. I didnt know how, I didnt know the way, but I trusted them. Here in America, and in Haiti, the great equalizer is education. And that depends on teachers, the guides to the future. Not that Im the most successful or the wealthiest person, Ms. Vertus says. But I am who I am because I could read. I came to America, and I got an education.An education shes passing on to countless others. So, when I think of Haitians, I think we are the first people to do something no other nation in the world has done. I think we are freedom lovers, we are strong, were a resilient people. When I look at all the family members and friends, at the people who were killed in that civil war after we left, thats the majority of people I knew.At and fabulous, Genise Vertus is a teacher, dancer and Fulbright scholarship recipient. Rahoun, where his mother was welcomed warmly, disappeared, becoming a refugee camp of Liberians who suffered mass killings, torture and rape during the civil war. When I look at all the family members and friends, at the people who were killed in that civil war after we left, thats the majority of people I knew, he acknowledges. And I know for a fact a lot of those kids were smarter than I was. But Mr. Dennis had an advantage they didnt his mother was an American. But for that chance of fate I could just as easily have been there, and dead, he admits. Instead, I had these opportunities to explore all of this stuff. So I always felt this responsibility toward those kids, my friends and family, who didnt make it. Who was I to squander the possibilities offered in America? Its a responsibility you feel toward your family and friends, always. Squander it he didnt. Mr. Dennis graduated from Fort Myers High School, winning a full academic scholarship to the University of Florida, then working in Washington, D.C., and sleeping on blow-up mattresses until he could get furniture. One day, a friends father took him aside to make him an offer: If Mr. Dennis could get into a top 10 law school, hed loan him the money to pay for the education, interest free. So the young man did, ultimately graduating from New York University Law School, then joining a national firm with a Naples office to work in civil law before deciding, finally, to become of all things a public defender. What drew me to law in the first place was working with people, he says especially people who need help and have no resources. He did that for years, before finally deciding to enter private practice. To hang a shingle with his name: Peter M. Dennis. The M. is a lot more than a toss-away initial, for Peter. It represents his Liberian name, Morlu. It comes from Liberian relatives never able to reach the United States or to have the opportunities Peters parents struggled to give him. I sign that full name on every legal document because I never want to forget, he says. It reminds me of exactly who I am. You always carry that with you. Ill carry that with me for the rest of my life, even as memories of what my family and friends once looked like, what they sounded like or smelled like, what their jokes were, what the particulars of our relationships were even as those fade, the essence of what they are stays with you. DENNISFrom page 14 Haitian immigrantsAlmost 680,000 Haitians now live in the United States, including at least 213,000 in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach area, and tens of thousands each in the Orlando area, the Tampa Bay area and the greater Fort Myers area, according to the Migration Policy Institute, using data from the U.S. Census. Elsewhere, only New York City ranks in that range of numbers, with 167,000 Haitian immigrants.

Ms. Hoagland called a parent-teacher conference and learned what was causing Troys classroom distress. Mrs. Volk told her she was suffering from Stage 5 kidney disease a malaise that had been worsening for several years and was undergoing dialysis treatments at home. The odds of finding a kidney donor were slim. My mom was in a lot of pain, Troy remembered. Every night she had to do dialysis and she screamed in pain because of it. I started focusing more on what she was going through than doing my schoolwork. I couldnt pay attention in class. The whole thing kind of put me in la-la land. Mrs. Volk said if a new kidney could not be found, the disease would eventually take her life. My kidney functionality had dropped to 5 to 8 percent, she said. I knew this was taking a toll on Troy. I was hooked up to a dialysis machine for 8 hours every single night. The experience often brought on a great deal of pain and fatigue. If I didnt have a good night on the dialysis machine, the next day Id be very sluggish and my blood pressure would go up, which would affect my health and put more painful pressure on my kidneys, she said. It was a vicious cycle. After doing some research through the University of Florida Health Shands Hospital, Ms. Hoagland discovered she and Mrs. Volk were a perfect match for a kidney transplant. Its not that we both had a rare blood type, Ms. Hoagland said. Its that getting a perfect match is a rare thing. So many factors apply. Only 25 percent of siblings match. I joked with her saying, You wouldnt by any chance want to donate a kidney, would you? Mrs. Volk said. She said, Well see. We left it at that. I wasnt expecting anything. Ms. Hoagland had other ideas. The tests they did showed that her blood would not attack my blood, she said, which meant her body wouldnt reject my kidney. That was all I needed to know. She met me at a parking lot outside where my son takes boxing lessons and said, Were a match. Im going to donate my kidney to you, Mrs. Volk said. I dropped to my knees right there in the parking lot and started crying. I was in shock and so thankful, so grateful this blessing came my way. After both women were cleared for the procedure, Mrs. Volk received Ms. Hoaglands kidney on Dec. 19, over Christmas break. They cut me open just above the belly button, Ms. Hoagland said. A 2-inch incision, not big at all. They took my kidney and gave it to Anahita. Aside from a little residual soreness, I dont even feel that its not there anymore. The doctors said my remaining kidney will get a little bigger and theres a chance my blood pressure will go up slightly, because that kidney now has double duty. But I feel no different. Mrs. Volk, however, feels a lot different. As soon as I got her kidney, it started working within seconds, she said. I call it Super Kidney. Its a miracle. I havent felt this good in so long. How do you thank someone for doing this? Ive nominated Donna for teacher of the year at her school. She restored my faith in humanity. Ive done all I can to get the story out, not only for the amazing person that Donna is, but in the hope that it will inspire others to be as selfless as she was and register to become an organ donor. Its so useless for people to die from this, because there are so many people out there who can donate and save lives. Thousands of people die every year from kidney disease, Ms. Hoagland added. People who need a kidney and cant get one. Thats a shame and its so preventable. Its a simple matter to be an organ donor, as easy as checking a box when you renew your drivers license. In the whole grand scheme of life, what I went through was nothing if it could help Anahita. If donating a kidney could save her life, it was completely worth it. As for Troy, the boy who unwittingly set this whole story in motion, he views it as a Christmas miracle. Our family has been waiting a long time for this to happen, he said. Everybody got a Christmas gift. A gift of life. And love. For more information on how to be a kidney donor, visit the National Kidney Foundation website at www.kidney.org/ transplantation/beadonor.

BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY | A17WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM In this age of technology, social media and digital advertising, marketing is more measurable than it ever was yet its still a challenge to determine how to predict audience reaction. The oncedependable old-school techniques that have been used effectively for decades are falling flat. Customers still love to buy, but they now almost resent being sold to. They refuse to respond to the marketing stimuli of old. Whats a marketer to do? The answer lies in the age-old Brothers Grimm tale of Rumpelstiltskin. You remember that one, dont you? You probably first heard it from your mother when she dandled you on her knee. And what did you ask her? Will you tell me a bedtime advertisement? Of course not. You wanted to hear a story. In an ironic twist of the technological age, audiences dont want to perceive themselves as being targeted. They want to be engaged, to feel not only informed but connected perhaps even befriended before theyre willing to open their wallets. The problem is not the mode of transmission but the message. In response, marketing is experiencing a renaissance of sorts, in that it engages customers, captures their imaginations and increases the likelihood of their taking action with stories. Companies that are achieving results know the power of using story also known as narrative elements, such as the kind found in fiction writing to lure customers. Storytelling works because it allows companies to dramatize their message, creating an experience that resonates with target audiences, much like in a play or a movie. It puts audiences at ease and engages them with the human side of a brand, creating an emotional connection. It leads the audience to a desired action, whether thats altering behavior, changing lives or spending money. And just like our childhood storybook icon Rumpelstiltskin was able to spin straw into gold, storytelling can spin traditional, ordinary, uninspired (and uninspiring) marketing messages into customer cash. But why the shift?Can you hear me now?Most marketers are familiar with the term noise, used to describe one or more various elements that interfere with the marketing message, distorting or destroying en route what is being sent to the potential customer. One of the most common forms of noise today is the sheer volume of information itself. As Bernhard Jungwirth noted in his Information Overload: Threat or Opportunity?: In his book Information Anxiety (1989), Richard Wurman claims that the weekday edition of The New York Times contains more information than the average person in 17th-century England was likely to come across in a lifetime. This personalizes the oft-cited estimate that more information has been produced in the last 30 years than in the previous 5,000. Statistics like these highlight the phenomenon of an information explosion and its consequence: information overload or information anxiety. Note that Wurmans observation was from nearly 30 year ago. Think the problem has gotten worse since then? You betcha. Consider the following: According to marketing consultants Stan Rapp and Tom Collins, on a typical day, an average American sees more than 5,000 marketing messages a day although this is hotly contested. With the advent of social media, it may be more. Studies of ad readership show that 74 percent of readers claim that they completely ignore ads. Jeff Hicks, CEO of Crispin Porter Bogusky (once called the hottest ad agency in the country) says that in a world supersaturated with content video games, web clips, text messages, etc. to break through and be noticed is a huge victory. But being noticed is a hollow victory. Businesses cannot survive on being noticed. They require sales and those sales come only by convincing customers that a product, service or offering is worthwhile. There is no doubt companies have more venues to reach consumers than ever before. In spite of this or perhaps because of it marketers also face more challenges in winning customer response.Why Cats Dont BarkThe paradigm of reaching customers has shifted. The power is no longer in the hands of the marketer. Gone are the days of the Mad Men, when a solid, slickly executed ad campaign would be all but guaranteed to move the sales curve upward. As the Eisenbergs observe: Waiting for your cat to bark? ask Bryan and Jeffrey Eisenberg in their book of the same title. This question is really our way of asking, Are you waiting for your customers to respond the way they used to? Many marketers are, and thats a problem. Cats dont bark and consumers today dont salivate on command like they seemed to a couple of decades ago. Consumers today behave more like cats than Pavlovs pooch. Times have changed and so must we. Consumers have altered the way in which they want companies to communicate with them. Their newfound power dictates that they be engaged in the manner by which they feel comfortable. And its not with a traditional quick, hard sell.

Interest rates and the stock market were on the rise, attracting investors into U.S. markets and requiring them to buy dollars to fund investment purchases. The overall economy and exports were strong as well, enticing foreign capital. And inflation was low, so those buying dollars wouldnt have less buying power as time moved forward. Yet in 2017 and continuing into 2018, the dollar has steadily been losing value. Last year the dollar fell 10 percent compared to a basket of major currencies and it continues to be in the red for the first few weeks of this year. Why is it so weak and what effect could that have on our economy and financial markets? One reason that the dollar is weak is that you cannot look at U.S. economic statistics in a vacuum you need to do so compared to other countries. So even though the U.S. economy was strong in 2017, many European countries had even stronger economic growth. And although interest rates in the U.S. did rise, other nations interest rates increased at a faster rate. Therefore, forericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com

A18 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYgate, muses Christopher Locke in his book Gonzo Marketing. Youre not interested. Your eyes glaze over. And I cant make you listen these days not with the 30 bajillion web links beckoning every second. Consumers crave something more than mere information. Daniel Pink, a former chief speechwriter for former Vice President Al Gore, says this: We live in a world where facts are everywhere. If we wanted to know the gross domestic product of Ecuador, my kids could find that online in 15 seconds. What matters more now is the ability to put facts into context and deliver them with emotional impact. And thats what a story does. We have in our head something called story grammar. We see the world as a series of episodes rather than logical propositions; when your spouse asks, How was your day? you dont whip out a PowerPoint presentation and a pie chart. Instead, you narrate: First, this happened, and youll never believe what happened after that, and so on. In a world of e-mail, websites, smartphones, social media and the like, We need storytelling more than ever, says journalist Chip Scanlan. Technology, ironically, has put us back around the campfire hanging on the storytellers words. Marketers continually face obstacles to adopting narrative elements to enhance their messages. Most of these come not from consumers but rather within their own organizations. Once considered verboten to mix the elements of fiction with business facts, marketers are embracing Storytelling Lesson Number One: Stories, personal or corporate, dont necessarily have to be true to contain truth, according to Ryan Matthews and Watts Wacker in their book Whats Your Story? Storytelling to Move Markets, Audiences, People, and Brands. But they are having less success convincing their peers. Even the term storytelling, itself, is sometimes looked upon with scorn. It is too often associated with an activity reserved for children and what would Mother Goose know about brand building? However, more and more high-level professionals are embracing the concept of story once they recognize its potential, not only in marketing, but also across a diverse field of corporate experience. Hollywood executive, entrepreneur, educator and author Peter Guber says, A well-told story can drive change, inspire innovation, stimulate more sales, foster collaboration, re-brand a company, incite viral advocacy for a mission or cause, generate more effective management and help overcome resistance.The story revivalThe origins of storytelling in marketing stem from the direct mail industry, whose practices inspired David Ogilvy to call the medium my first love and secret weapon which he used to build, from scratch, one of the largest, most effective and most recognized ad agencies in the world. In dictating tactics for creating successful ads, he advised: Write your copy in the form of a story, as in the advertisement which carried the headline, The amazing story of a Zippo that worked after being taken from the belly of a fish. One of the most famous advertisements ever written was by John Caples for International Correspondence School, under the headline They Laughed When I Sat Down at the Piano But When I Started to Play Business storytelling is not, however, turning every fact or company function into The Little Engine That Could. It is not Once upon a time. It does not seek to trivialize an issue or turn all information into info-tainment. As executive consultant Ed Konczal notes, Storytelling is a very serious business tool. One of the best definitions comes from Articulus, a communications agency specializing in corporate storytelling: Corporate Storytelling is a method of persuasive communication that uses everything you know about your solution (idea, product, project, etc.), your audience (customer, internal management, team, etc.), and the alternatives (status quo, competitor, etc.) and transforms it into a message that gets people to take action on your ideas. It is about making sure that message is clear, compelling, and concise. Stories may include the elements of narrative, such as character, plot, description and a goal (which, for marketers, would be a call to action). There are reasons why storytelling works: Story makes information engaging. IBM Research has found that, When compared to non-narrative text, stories are deeper and richer, more compelling, and more memorable. Stories tap an ancient resource the power of social dynamics. As Mr. Guber notes: Just the facts, maam. Just the facts, Sergeant Joe Friday famously said in the TV series Dragnet. Unfortunately, many professionals in organizations today try to persuade other folks to join their parade, adopt their mission or cause, or turn a no into a yes by using the same communication skills as Sgt. Friday facts, figures and information. Not only do these individuals typically fail to get others to act on their goal, but they often feel frustrated, impotent and not heard. Facts, figures, information, PowerPoint slides and data rarely catalyze, excite or incite action. Story makes information easier to absorb. Storytelling helps consumer assimilate information by creating connection cognitively and emotionally. It makes concepts easier to understand and absorb, according to IBM Research. Business strategist Chris Brogan says, Stories are how we learn best. We absorb numbers and facts and details, but we keep them all glued into our heads with stories. Branding strategist Bernadette Martin elaborates: Stories capture and hold our attention. They are an extremely powerful form of communication because stories combine facts, figures and details with emotions, colors and imagery, creating synapses between the left and right halves of your brain. Stories not only allow us to process information and store it effectively in memory, but also, perhaps most importantly, allow us connect emotionally with another person. Stories persuade where facts alone fail. Consumers do not make purchases based on logic, but on emotion and only use logic later in order to justify their decision. This emotional connection requires persuasion, and on that level, nothing resonates better than story. When faced with an opportunity to persuade, if you cant make it meaningful for your audience, what you talk about doesnt make much difference, says marketing expert Kelsey Ruger. Stories will work because when compared with other persuasion methods, they allow your audience to come to the desired conclusion on their own. Using story can yield significant results. There are countless examples of this, but heres one that is particularly dramatic: Remember the Old Spice campaign that launched nearly a decade ago? It was wildly successful, achieving millions of viral video views quicker than past hits like Susan Boyle and U.S. President Barack Obamas election victory speech, says one source. In addition, the companys sales increased 107 percent over a single month, and 55 percent over the first three months the campaign ran. Storytelling can generate tremendous change. Storytelling has the power to change the destiny of a company, an industry, a nation, and ultimately the world, say Mr. Matthews and Mr. Wacker. Its a force as powerful and universal as gravity.Wield your weapon wiselyThere is no doubt that storytelling is a powerful tool to engage consumers and compel them to respond. Mr. Matthews and Mr. Wacker call it the most underutilized weapon in most companies strategic arsenals. But that comes with a caveat and a word of caution. As with any other weapon, it must be wielded carefully. The use of story in business is not for children, nor should it be approached with navet. Even at its most entertaining, it must be executed soberly, with a focus on its intended purpose. There is too great a margin for error. Just as story used properly can yield significant results, used improperly it can yield no results at all or, worse, inflict damage to a companys stature or reputation. Therefore, its application is best left to professionals who understand the use of narrative elements. Copywriters who can lay claim to experience not only in advertising but also in narrative journalism and direct marketing are usually the most capable. In the right hands, however, a companys ordinary marketing message can be transformed into a masterpiece of nar-rative that will win consumers hearts. And as Mr. Guber notes: Move your listeners hearts, and their feet and wallet will follow. Its like Rumpelstiltskin except, instead of straw, youre spinning story into marketing gold. MARKETINGFrom page 17 COURTESY PHOTOThis attention-grabbing headline is from one of the most famous and successful ads ever written, which used the techniques of storytelling to sell a correspondence course. eign investment flowed to these other countries because of a perceived higher potential return. Second, analysts believe that the demand for the dollar has been declining because of political problems in our country. Foreign nationalists see news stories about an erratic and unpredictable president and they are hesitant to travel or invest in the U.S., lessening demand for dollars. In addition, the federal government shutdown has worried many investors, which in turn has dampened demand for dollars. And third, many doubt whether the Federal Reserve will continue to push interest rates higher in 2018. Wage and overall inflation remain stubbornly low in the U.S. and many people continue to be underemployed. What reason does the Fed have to raise rates? Why upset this strong economy? And if interest rates do stay stagnant, demand for other currencies will outpace that of the dollar as investors move their money to a higher return environment. But the real question now is whether a declining U.S. dollar is good or bad. The answer is it depends. For U.S. travelers looking to vacation abroad, a weak dollar is definitely bad as everything from food to hotel rooms will cost more. And for those of you who like imported goods, a weak dollar is also bad as your next Louis Vuitton purse, Toyota SUV or bottle of Champagne will cost more. Similarly, companies that import most of their products to sell to U.S. consumers will also suffer as those items will cost more. On the positive side, businesses that export their products to other countries have definitely benefited. Companies like Apple, General Motors and McDonalds all can sell their products more cheaply abroad. But even though a falling dollar benefits major businesses throughout the country, if the currency continues its fall it can lead to major problems. Inflation could increase dramatically as imported goods and energy prices rise. And foreign investors could be scared away, which could lead to declining financial markets. Therefore, it is my hope that the U.S. dollar can find some stability this year. MONEYFrom page 17

A20 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY EARL ON CARSOpen letter to Florida car dealersDear South Florida Car Dealer: Youve probably heard of Earl Stewart Toyota, located in Lake Park, Fla., but you might think were located in North Palm Beach. We exercise poetic license and use North Palm Beach as our location because Lake Park is such a small town, population 8,155 as of 2017, few people know where its located. Last year, 2017, Earl Stewart Toyota sold 3,349 new cars and 1,934 used 5,283 total vehicles! As a car dealer in a large metro area like West Palm Beach or Delray Beach, you must at least be curious how a car dealer in a small town with a population of just over 8,000 (including those too young and too old to drive) can sell more cars than you. In fact, for the last 14 years, Earl Stewart Toyota sold more vehicles than any new car dealership on Floridas east coast between Orlando and Broward County. How is this possible? The answer is that Earl Stewart Toyota is selling cars to your customers in your town Deerfield, Delray, Boca Raton, Boynton, Lake Worth, West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens, Riviera Beach, Wellington, Stuart, Fort Pierce, Port St. Lucie, Melbourne in fact, all over the state of Florida. Your next question must be why is this happening?All car dealers claim to be honest, transparent and to love their customers. This is clearly not so because the Gallup Organization in its annual poll since 1977 has ranked car dealers last, or almost last, in their Honesty and Ethics in Professions poll, news.gallup.com/poll/1654/ honesty-ethics-professions.aspx. At this dealership, they walk the talk.1. Earl Stewart Toyota posts the lowest out-the-door price on every new and used car. 2. The prices Earl Stewart Toyotas customers are quoted by its sales people and advertisements are the same as its lowest online price. 3. Earl Stewart Toyota does not add dealer fees to the posted, quoted prices. As you know, the dealer fee is the generic term for the hidden profit you add to the price of your cars. You use lots of names to disguise it like electronic filing fee, processing fee, notary fee, doc fee, tag agency fee, dealer services fee, etc. Earl Stewart Toyotas prices are our lowest and out-the-door, adding only what it pays the state of Florida for the sale tax and license plate/registration. 4. Earl Stewart Toyota does not pre-install dealer installed options or accessories and add these to its advertised prices. All options and accessories on cars it sells you are factory installed, unless you ask for it to install a special option after you buy the car. 5. Earl Stewart Toyota sells you the car that you came in to buy, and does not try to switch you to another car with more profit. 6. Earl Stewart Toyota gladly gives you its lowest price on any car you choose to buy and encourages you to shop and compare its price with the competition. It doesnt try to switch you to leasing because dealers make more money leasing. The price its customers pay if they lease is the same price and profit to them if they buy. 7. Earl Stewart Toyota doesnt ask its customers to trust them without reciprocating that trust. If the customer changes her mind for any reason after the purchase, we offer a 100 percent unconditional moneyback guarantee for one week. This is a full cash-back offer, not a credit on another car. There are no conditions and no fine print, the customer doesnt even have to tell them why he/she changed her mind. 8. Earl Stewart Toyota offers real online, one-click Amazon-like car buying. A customer doesnt even have to come into the dealership or talk to a salesman. We offer free delivery anywhere in Florida. The customer can pay with a credit card, bank transfer or finance. 9. Earl Stewart Toyota is the only car dealership Im aware of that does not take away the customers right to sue the dealership if he/she feels she has a reason. All other dealers have an arbitration agreement in the fine print of their vehicle buyers order. This requires customers to waive their constitutional right to their day in court. An arbitration agreement requires that any dispute be resolved by a team of lawyers or retired judges. This team is chosen by the car dealer and their decisions often favor the car dealer. This is further evidence that Earl Stewart Toyota trusts its customers as much as it asks its customers to trust it. 10. At Earl Stewart Toyota, there are no automated answer machines, secretaries, or anything else shielding anyone from direct access by all customers. One again, how can one expect customers to trust them if we dont return this trust. My personal cell phone number is 561-358-1474 and every one of my customers has this number. All my managers service, sales, body shop, parts, finance and accounting make their cell phone numbers available to all our customers. We also have five RED PHONES strategically located around my dealership. My customers can pick up any of these phones and be automatically connected to my cell phone. We do this because we know were far from perfect and we do make mistakes; but what makes us different from other car dealerships is that our customers can always reach the person in charge who can make it right.There, Mr. Car Dealer, you now have the 10 secrets to Earl Stewarts success. All you must do is put them in place and be sure they are followed by your employees. If you do this, youll be able to sell as many cars as I do, or maybe even more! Excuse me if I dont look worried, because it requires a lot of courage, trust, moral integrity, transparency and HARD WORK. earlSTEWARTearls@estoyota.com BEHIND THE WHEELAlfa Romeos Giulia aims for your driver heartAn Alfa Romeo is an emotional experience. This Italian company tries to tap into your soul with the way its cars look, feel and sound. The new Giulia presents this passion under the veil of a practical sedan. The exterior design stops people on the street, literally. There was more than one occasion when onlookers snapped a picture of the Giulia at stoplights, including one in the middle of a crosswalk. Its that kind of reaction that can make ownership worthwhile. After all, in the quest to drive something distinctive, having a stranger stop in the middle of a busy road to get a photo is an instant affirmation of something special. What makes this instant connection with owners and admirers is the cars willingness to be dramatic. It has a unique face with soft, rounded features that are interlaced with sharp creases. These features shouldnt flow so well together, but there is an underlying confidence that makes it instantly attractive. Much of this poise comes from the deep V-shape of the classic Alfa Romeo grille that has been fashionable long before Valentino or Armani. So yes, the Giulia is like an Italian love affair on wheels. The profile and rear are far less intense with their design lines. Its not boring. Instead its a proper acknowledgement that making every surface different for the sake of difference turns confidence into confusion. Inside is a similar situation where a few stand-out exotic pieces smartly pepper a practical layout. For example, the leather interior is standard on all trim levels of the Giulia. There are some stunning layouts available like the red and the black with white accents. These have a premium appearance that drives home all the best stereotypes of Italian fashion. But where the latest runway chic rarely looks like it could never be worn to a neighborhood dinner party, this interior is clear and well laid out. In fact, to some, the base model might feel a little too simple. The base Giulia costs $38,990, and it is not a stripped-out vehicle. But it does feel a little different than its competition like the Audi A4 and Mercedes C-Class. The Alfa likes to centralize its controls on the sports steering wheel so that the driver can control nearly everything with just his/ her fingertips. There are fewer redundant controls on the dash and center console, and thus it gives the impression of being less features-filled. The only place that this perception might be true is on the standard 6.5inch infotainment screen. Its a little small for its large integrated opening in the dash, and for such a prominent placement, it feels like it should be doing more. The solution to this is the bigger 8.8-inch screen that really belonged there all along. It adds satellite navigation, handwriting recognition and more features, but it also pushes even the most basic Giulia over $40K. While that kind of pricing is not cheap, the Giulia sings its way into enthusiasts hearts every time the engine starts. The standard motor is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. This is the new standard in the small luxury sedan world, but Alfas power plant has a much more athletic growl than direct competitors from Lexus, Cadillac, Mercedes and even the performance-minded BMW. Of course it also helps that the Giulias motor produces 280 horsepower, which makes it the powerhouse of bunch (theres an ultrahot 505 hp Quadrifoglio edition that we will save for its own review.) This extra power is a key part to the overall appeal. The Giulia is out to give owners a sports car experience. Its steering is tight, and the suspension is nimble. So there needs to be a motor that not only has the bark of performance, but also backs it up with a powerful bite. Thats how the Giulia captures the drivers emotions. It has all the right ingredients to get your heart pumping a little faster, and Alfa Romeo even took the time to put substance behind the style. Its the little Italian sports car for those who still need to drop the kids off at school. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

A22 WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 FLORIDA WEEKLY Provident Jewelry celebrates Wellington expansion Jan. 25The seventh store under the Provident Jewelry name is building a new location just steps away from its original Wellington location.

Representatives of the Robb Report will present its 2018 car of the year selection, as well as runners-up, at the event, making it one of the publics first chances to see their choice, announced Jan. 22, in person. The selection information was not available at press time. The new Provident Jewelry space is still in the Wellington Town Square center, identifiable by its new clock tower. In addition to fine jewelry and timepieces, Provident has an on-site master jeweler and watch-maker and its trademark Dream Factory and Wine Lounge.

Authored by Jonathan Miller of Miller Samuel Inc., the Douglas Elliman reports reveal that Q4 proved to be one of the top performing quarters for South Florida in 2017. The key takeaway for Q4 is that we saw more strength at the upper end of the market than we have all year. A big reason for it has been more negotiability provided by sellers, said Jay Phillip Parker, CEO of Douglas Elliman Florida. Buyers have continued to hold firm, incentivizing sellers to be more willing to negotiate, which in turn has enabled more activity, especially at the higher end of these markets. These South Florida market reports are part of the Elliman Report series that began 23 years ago. The fourth quarter report showcases Miami Beach, Delray Beach and Wellington as stand-out performers in terms of overall sales and price trends posting large gains. The report analyzes the key data and trends, helping clients to make informed decisions. The average size of a luxury sale rose across most of the markets as a developing pattern of higher activity at the upper end of the market, added Jonathan Miller of Miller Samuel Inc. Overall, South Florida was a buyers market in 2017, particularly in the ultraluxury sector. The recent spike in interest, coupled with the tax referendum seem to have shifted the temperament of both buyers and sellers, raising speculation that South Florida may be ready to boom again, Mr. Parker said. In Wellington, median sales price for luxury condos rose 27.8 percent to $677,500. Median sales price for luxury single-family homes rose 3.9 percent to $1,062,500. In Palm Beach, condo sales declined, and single-family sales increased, but median sales price for luxury condos surged 165.2 percent to $15,216,838 In Jupiter/Palm Beach Gardens, housing price trends for the condo and single-family markets continued to move higher as sales slipped. Median sales price for single-family homes in Jupiter increased 1.1 percent to $455,000. For condos, median sales price slipped 0.5 percent to $278,500. In Palm Beach Gardens, median sales price for single-family homes declined 7.6 percent to $425,000, while the median sales price for condos rose 8 percent to $235,000.

Kensington. 320 pages. Hardcover $26.This is Ms. Blacks third Gardiner and Renner novel, and there are some signs that it might be the last. I hope not. These thrillers are so reliably macabre, so brimming with fascinating forensic detail, and so well-crafted that Id hate to see this odd couple break up. This one begins with a bang and never lets up. Cleveland forensic expert Maggie Gardiner has never seen a body so decimated. The gorgeous leader of the Sterling Financial operation has been pretty much shredded. Although blood is all around, the clever killer has left no trace of his (or her) entrance or exit. Nothing has been stolen. Nothing revealing has been left behind. The kind of forensic evidence that is Maggies bread and butter just isnt there. No break-in. No furniture tossing. The most curious item is a suspicious statement, in plain view, of a $600 million Panamanian account in Joannas name. How did this young woman put together such a fortune? Did she make enemies in the process? Secretive Joanna Moorehouses lacerated throat seems a gruesome icon of the cutthroat world in which she has become a major player. Who would want her dead? Those who lost their homes by being conned into taking out unaffordable mortgages? Or who had supposed fixed-rate loans turned into adjustable ones? Perhaps. How about her business rivals? Or maybe members of the firm who might ascend to the throne? Did she dump her boy-toy? Working with the police team of Jack Renner and Tom Riley, Maggie needs to find the answer. Sorting through the possible suspects connected with Sterling Financial means sorting through the intricacies of their work practices. To open readers to this world, which echoes the situation leading to the 2008 financial collapse, Ms. Black gives us an amazingly readable lesson in the shoddy business of bundled mortgage derivatives and related financial chicanery. Watching Maggie, with or without Jack and Tom, explore the possibilities is great fun, at once vividly detailed and increasingly suspenseful. As they interrogate possible suspects, gathering information and learning about Sterling Financial, we see true professionals at work. We also come to understand the working partnership of Renner and Riley and the difficult relationship that binds Jack and Maggie. After all, how and why does one manage a relationship with a vigilante killer? Yes, dear reader, if Jack Renner cant bring criminals to justice the usual way, hell do is as an assassin. As the plot develops, the unthinkable happens. Two other attractive women, both of them connected to Sterling Financial, are found killed victims of the same kind of brutality and the same escape artistry. Once the investigators noticed that the three victims are somewhat similar in appearance, that observation alters ideas about the perpetrators profile. Is Maggies appearance so very different? To complicate things even further, a case being explored by Maggies ex-husband, who is also on the Cleveland police force, seems to have a possible connection to Maggies case. Though they have a sort of truce, Maggie is not comfortable working with her ex. I dont know about you, but I love this stuff. And no one handles the psychological and technical dimensions of such crime fiction as well as Lisa Black.New York Timesbestselling author Lisa Black introduced the characters of Maggie Gardiner and Jack Renner in her acclaimed suspense novel That Darkness and continued their story in Unpunished. She is the author of seven novels in the Theresa MacLean mystery series and two novels written as Elizabeth Becka. As a forensic scientist at the Cuyahoga County Coroners Office, she analyzed gunshot residue on hands and clothing, hairs, fibers, paint, glass, DNA, blood and many other forms of trace evidence, as well as crime scenes. Now she is a latent print examiner and CSI for the Cape Coral Police Department, working mostly with fingerprints and crime scenes. 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.

Komen race set to turn streets pink BY JANIS FONTAINE pbnews@ oridaweekly.comWhen the runners and walkers hit the streets of West Palm Beach each year for the annual Race for the Cure, it looks like a river of pink washing down Flagler Drive. That river has an energy that is strong and bright and unstoppable, and the feeling the people share is, too Its hope. Everyone knows someone who has or had breast cancer, and many know someone who died from it. But those numbers, once so terrifying, have had some of their power taken away by doctors, researchers and scientists, and by the patients willing to fight alongside them, sometimes offering their bodies to science to help someone else. The money to pay for the laboratories and supplies and the medical professionals who are working to find new treatments and maybe a cure, comes in part from events like the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. But the money raised also pays for local screening programs, education and to help the South Florida men and women who are fighting the disease. But besides the money, the Race for the Cure celebrates those who survived and are surviving breast cancer, and it also tries to honor those who didnt. The pinnacle of race day always is the Survivor Recognition Ceremony at the Meyer Amphitheatre following the race. One hundred percent of the races net proceeds are allocated to Komens mission, organizers say: To save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all, and energizing science to find the cures. But that doesnt mean the money ends up in Dallas, where the Susan G. Komen Foundation is based. A full 75 percent of the net income stays in South Florida at least $16 million in Palm Beach, Martin, and St. Lucie counties so far. The other 25 percent supports the big brains doing critical research through the Susan G. Komen Grants Program. Now its even more convenient to register. A registration pop-up is set up at Fit2Run at the Mall at Wellington Green, 10300 W. Forest Hill Blvd., Wellington, from noon to 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 25.

The points of comparison arent hard to find. First, theres that whole age and gender thing, although that hasnt stood in the way of the band covering Fugazis The Waiting Room during live shows. Then theres the fact that all four bands were discovered and championed on the airwaves by the ageless Rodney Bingenheimer of Rodney on the ROQ fame. Doll Skin has released two albums and spent a huge amount of time on the road both as Oteps opening act and as part of the Warped Tour roster. And yes, theyre still under the age of 21. They play a show Jan. 27 at Propaganda in downtown Lake Worth. Our career has been filled with us playing with bands that are a lot heavier than us, said Doll Skins Meghan Herring in a recent phone interview. Therell be punk bands and hard rock bands and metalcore bands, and we feel like we fit in because were kind of a combination of a lot of those. It was back in 2013 when Ms. Herring first hooked up with frontwoman Sydney Dolezal, guitarist Alex Snowden and bassist Nicole Rich at the School of Rock in Flagstaff, Arizona. In addition to playing drums and singing backing vocals, shes responsible for nearly all of the lyrics on the bands Manic Pixie Dream Girl album, which was released this past June on Megadeth bassist David Ellefsons Emp label.

So goes the adage. You may get something in spades. But sometimes, wishful thinking pays off. Case in point: A piece of 1940s Melba Ware I spotted in a Fort Myers thrift shop. The British-made pottery butter or cheese dish reminds me of American-made Hull and McCoy pottery of the same era. Its decidedly old-fashioned, pretty, pastel and forward looking, at least in its optimism. And I admired it, but decided to pass on it as you might have guessed, I have one old-fashioned, pretty, pastel and forward-looking treasure too many at my house. I later regretted the decision not to buy, then forgot about the piece. Fast-forward to Christmas morning. My sister hands me a bag. You can sell this, if you want to, she says. I open it and its the piece of Melba Ware of course, I wont sell it. Things always have a way of working out, which is why I seldom regret not buying something. I thought about that during a recent estate sale I visited. There, on the shelves, was a pair of Heisey Old Williamsburg candelabra in the rarely seen Sahara color. They were priced at $450, but the market has softened from a couple of decades ago, when they would have been priced at double that. Oh, that richly hued yellow glass glowed from the shelves, but where would I have stored them? And why spend $450 on something that would be put away? It was a rare opportunity, but in the world of collecting, there will be others. Perhaps another time If theres one lesson I have learned, it is this: We cant have everything we want. Otherwise, nothing is of value. But the piece of Melba Ware, found at Family Thrift in Fort Myers? Its priceless.A few showsDoll Show & Sale The Gold Coast and Sunshine Doll Clubs will host their annual show from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 27 at St. Lukes Catholic Church, 2892 S.

Choral Society seeks singers for vocal competitionThe Choral Society of the Palm Beaches is looking for a few talented singers to enter its competition. High school seniors are encouraged to apply to enter its fifth annual Young Artist Vocal Competition. Deadline is Feb. 2.

The Young Artist Vocal Competition provides an avenue for students to explore their dreams and to experience and feel encouragement in the arts. The competition was founded to support senior high school choral students in pursuit of higher educational goals in the vocal arts. To qualify, students must plan to pursue a college major or minor degree in vocal performance, music education or musical theater, and careers that incorporate music.

Its a work to which Palm Beach Opera returns for a second time, performing the piece Jan. 26-28 at the Kravis Center. The opera, which had its premiere in 1900, is a midcareer work for Giocomo Puccini. Its perhaps best known for the title characters big aria, Vissi darte, and The New York Times recently declared Maria Callas 1953 recording of the work to be the finest operatic recording ever. The opera clearly has staying power. Set in the shadows of Romes churches and castles in 1800, Tosca is based on Victorien Sardous 1887 dramatic play, La Tosca. The great Sarah Bernhardt starred in the play, reportedly performing it 3,000 times across France. Sardous plays seldom are staged today, but he was among the most popular of playwrights in his day. But Puccinis work has endured. The composer spent four years off and on adapting the work for his opera while at the same time working on Madama B utterfly. The love story was set against the backdrop of Napoleons attempts to conquer Italy, which at the time was divided into several small states. Theres intrigue as artist Mario Cavaradossi protects a political prisoner, Cesare Angelotti. Scarpia, the chief of police and vilest of villains, tricks Cavaradossis lover, the singer Floria Tosca, into thinking the artist is cheating on her. And the rest leads to all their downfalls amid some of Puccinis best-known music. Besides Toscas big aria, Vissi darte, Cavaradossi has his opportunity to soar with O dolci mani. So does the rest of the company. Chief Conductor David Stern returns to lead this production, which stars Keri Alkema (Jan. 26 and 28) and Alexandra Loutsion (Jan. 27) as Tosca. Ms. Loutsion starred as Cio-Cio San in last seasons Madama B utterfly. The lead tenor role of Cavaradossi is shared by Riccardo Massi (Jan. 26 and 28), who recently performed the role at Royal Opera House Covent Garden in London, and Adam Diegel (Jan. 27), who along with Ms. Loutsion, performed in Palm Beach Operas Madama B utterf ly as Pinkerton in 2017. Baritone Michael Chioldi returns to the company in the role of Scarpia, with previous appearances in productions of Rigoletto, Macbeth and La Traviata. Scott Conner will play the role of Cesare Angelotti, and Palm Beach Operas Benenson Young Artist Brian Wallin will perform as Spoletta, both marking their Palm Beach Opera debuts. Its not just singers who will have a voice in this production. The Palm Beach Opera Orchestra will use the Kravis Centers digital George W. Mergens Memorial Organ for the Te Deum. Fenlon Lamb, last with Palm Beach Opera for its production of Don Pasquale in 2016, rejoins the company for a fifth season as stage director of Tosca, designed by Jean-Pierre Ponnelle. Its a busy season for the opera, founded in 1961. The company celebrates what would have been composer Leonard Bernsteins 100th birthday with a production of his opera Candide (Feb. 23-25), and wraps its season with Mozarts The Marriage of Figaro (March 23-25).

For a complete list of classes, workshops and demonstrations, visit www. freshfestFL.com or check out its Facebook page. pop-punk front and center, Ms. Herring s l yrics on songs like So Much Nothing are darker and more introspective than you might expect. Im sitting here in catatonia, I dont know what to do / Everything heres so beautiful, my minds so ugly, but whats new? Ms. Herring, as you may have guessed, is the sensitive one. Yeah, absolutely, 100 percent, definitely, she said with a laugh. The girls are like, I have feelings too! Just, you know, not a lot of them. And Im like, I have way too many of them, and I cant control it. So yeah, Im the one that cries the most. And then after I cry, I start writing. Ms. Herring is aware that this same behavior is shared by every sophomore poetry major whos ever lived, as well as Alanis Morissette, whose tormented Uninvited is the lone cover on the groups new album. Which raises the question of whos more sensitive, her or Alanis? God, probably her, conceded Ms. Herring. She writes her own stuff, and I think that shes probably like that, despite the fact that shes as legendary as she is. I dont know. I mean, I would love to meet her one day. Fortunately, Ms. Herring can take her own anxieties out on her drum kit, on which shes as adept at classic rock as she is punk rock. Im really inspired by punk drummers like Erik Sandin from NOFX and David Sandstrm from Refused, she said, but I got trained in The Police and Led Zeppelin and The Who, which took a good year and a half. I made sure I knew my roots before I went out and found what I like. All of which could help Doll Skin stand the test of time in a world of everdiminishing attention spans. The same goes for the bands brash attitude; a live video of Ms. Dolezals confrontation with an audience heckler is pure Johnny Thunders. And then theres the geeky sense of humor that finds its way into their Shut Up (You Miss Me) video an unapologetic homage to Scott Pilgrim vs. the World as well as a band name that conjures up images of little kids tearing the hair and appendages off long-suffering Barbie dolls. Weve actually had Barbie dolls onstage with their hair cut off and their arms and stuff dismembered, Ms. Herring said cheerfully. The name, she explained, was a last-minute decision before the bands first gig that just kind of stuck. We wanted it to be like something from a horror movie, I guess. Something kind of girly, but with a creepy vibe. David Stern Alexandra LoutsionMichael ChioldiKeri Alkema Riccardo MassiAdam Diegel Fenlon Lamb

YesMilitary heroism has been chronicled in movies so many times that its easy to take for granted. Leaving friends and loved ones behind to protect ones country is a life-changing choice, and soldiers today take the responsibility voluntarily. Its admirable and creates a sense of gratitude from a countrys citizens thats beyond comparison. This reminder is especially relevant in Strong, which follows the first Army combat unit to enter Afghanistan after 9/11. Capt. Mitch Nelson (Chris Hemsworth) was ready to retire and settle into a domestic life with his wife (Elsa Pataky, Hemsworths real-life wife) and daughter in September 2001. After 9/11 he immediately went to Lt. Colonel Bowers (comedian Rob Riggle, himself a former Marine and nicely playing the role straight) and asked to rejoin his unit. Hes allowed, and a short time later hes back with Hal Spencer (Michael Shannon), Sam Diller (Michael Pena), Ben Milo (T revante Rhodes) and his other squad mates (there are 12 of them total, hence the title) as they venture to the Middle East. The plan, as shared by Col. Mulholland (William Fichtner), is complicated. Theyre to fly into Uzbekistan, just north of Afghanistan, and meet up with Afghan warlord General Dostum (Navid Negahban), who hates the Taliban. The mission is to trek 40 miles through the mountainous, arid terrain to capture the Taliban stronghold city of Mazar-I-Sharif. The problem is there are other warlords who also want to possess Mazar-I-Sharif, and the Taliban isnt going down without a fight. Director Nicolai Fuglsig shoots the action scenes as raw, gritty and intense, but also repetitive. The danger heightens as the men draw closer to their targets, which renders a video game cycle to the story: The men enter into combat, survive and advance. Then repeat. Its one-note, and reminders of the importance of the mission do little to assuage the narrative monotony. This wouldve been more forgivable if the action were shot in creative ways, and/or the various scenarios were more diverse, but neither element does much to make the film more engaging. Ted Tally and Peter Craigs script is based on the book Horse Soldiers by Doug Stanton. One naturally hopes that both the book and movie do justice to the courage these 12 Americans and their Afghan compatriots displayed. We need to remember, however, that just because a movie does justice to a story doesnt mean it renders the events in a compelling way. Authenticity is important in a movie such as this, yes, but the creativity and manner in which the story is told are also essential, and in that regard Strong is a letdown. Still, though, it doesnt feel right to give Strong a negative review. So Im not going to. Theres just enough in the camaraderie amongst the men to make them likable and have us care about them every step of the way, and because of that, and because of the respect and appreciation theyve earned for doing what they do, a moderate recommendation is earned. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> The lm was shot in New Mexico.Did you know? PUZZLE ANSWERS 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.Darkest Hour 1/2(Gary Oldman, Ben Mendelsohn, Lily James) Gary Oldman is tremendous as Winston Churchill in the first month of his run as prime minister in May 1940. Churchill deals with the escalating war in Europe and turmoil within his own party in this fascinating look at the complexity of power and war. Rated PG-13.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.The Disaster Artist (James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen) Hollywood failures, friends Tommy (James Franco) and Greg (Dave Franco), decide to make their own film, The Room, which inadvertently becomes a cult classic as one of the worst movies ever made. Funny without being mean-spirited, its a great movie about the making of a terrible movie. Rated R.

Early Bird VIP Admission(Ticket good for all 3 days)General AdmissionFeb. 3 Info Call: PUZZLES LETTER AGENDA HOROSCOPESAQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You might want to reject a suggested change. But it could be wise to go with the flow, at least for a while. You can always return to your first plan if you like. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Youre bolstered by both the practical and poetic sides of your nature as you maneuver through some unsettled emotional situations. Things ease up by weeks end. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might feel bolder as each new success falls into place. But caution is still advised through the end of the week. Until then, a step-by-step approach is best. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) That cooperation you request could come at too high a price. Since few can beat the Bovine at being clever and resourceful, why not see what you can do on your own? GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Aspects favor a quieter time spent getting closer to the people who are especially important to you. Theres always much more to learn and appreciate about each other. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The concerned Crab will act to resolve workplace misunderstandings before they get out of hand and cause more-serious problems. Coworkers rally to support your efforts. LEO (July 23 to August 22) What the Big Cat might see as a disturbing act of disloyalty might just be a failure of communication on both sides. Take time for mediation rather than confrontation. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Be more patient with those who seem unwilling to accept your version of whats right. The fact is, theres a lot more to learn on all sides of this issue. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) It should be easier to assess the facts youll need to make an important decision. But dont commit if you still have doubts. There could be more you need to know. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your excitement level remains high as you continue working on that new project. Expect some setbacks. But on the whole, all will move pretty much on schedule. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) It might be wise to be more prudent with expenses right now. But your financial situation should soon clear up, and you could be back shopping, happily as ever. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You might prefer sticking with your current schedule. But some newly emerging information could persuade you to consider a change. Keep an open mind.

B18 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JANUARY 25-31, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY VINOThe sweet (wine) lifeMany people get enjoyment from sweeter wines. We can enhance the dessert course immeasurably with a glass of something on the sweeter side. There are several ways to produce sweet wines. First, leave the grapes on the vine for the longest possible time, which makes them super-ripe and increases sugar content. These are known as late harvest wines. Some grapes are left out until after the temperature drops below freezing to make ice wine. Freezing also removes water and concentrates sugars. Grapes that are dried after harvesting make a wide variety of wines. In Italy, theyre called passito. And the famous Italian sweet wine known as Vin Santo is also made from grapes that are dried to become almost like raisins. Of course, you can make a sweet wine by just adding more sugar. The sweeter Champagnes are made like that, as are several varieties of Riesling and the famous Tokays from Hungary. Lets start with the wines made in a more natural way, such as Moscato. The white Muscat (or Moscatel) grape grows just about everywhere in the world, and you can find the wines in still, sparkling and dessert versions. One very characteristic quality of Moscato is a distinctive floral aroma, which some describe as musk. However, many winemaking techniques, such as oak aging, minimize this scent and offer a much sweeter smell of white flowers and honey. However, some of the most prized wines in the world are called rot wines and many come from the Sauternes region of Bordeaux in France. A fungus known as noble rot attacks the grapes (primarily Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon) when weather conditions are just right. This reduces juice content, concentrates the sugars and produces other chemical changes that result in a very characteristic and desirable aroma and flavor profile. This wonderful disease does not affect the bunches evenly, so the grapes are often harvested by very dedicated people who go through the vineyard dozens of times picking them one by one. As you might expect, this results in a very expensive wine, and most of them are available in half bottles. Sweet wines offer us some delightful food pairing opportunities. One classic pairing is foie gras with a glass of the Sauternes mentioned above. Port with Stilton cheese is another. Many sweet white wines go very well with nut-based desserts, as well as custards like crme brle and fruit dishes like tarte Tatin, apple cobbler and others. The good news is that not all dessert wines are that expensive. Some excellent wines from Sauternes, the neighboring region of Barsac, and Hungarian Tokays are quite enjoyable in the $40 range. So give them a try and for now, please enjoy our latest selections. Salentin Numina Gran Corte Spirit Vineyard Val de Uco 2013 ($40) Killer stuff. Inky black in the glass, promising (and delivering) huge aromas of sweet fruit, earth and cassis, almost like a Bordeaux. This wine spent 16 months in French oak, so you can expect round tannins, vanilla, raspberry, blueberry and spice. WW 92.Martini & Rossi Sparkling Ros NV ($12) This wine comes in a four-pack of 187 ml. bottles. Its light salmon color in the glass with a perfumed nose of strawberry candy. Fun stuff in a handy package for tailgate parties and similar occasions. WW 89. Amici Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2014 ($50) The color of this wine is spectacular, and so is the nose of smoke, coffee, cedar and ripe berries. There are deep blackberry flavors along with rich red plum, and a very full mouthfeel. Its a youngster, and could use a few years in the cellar (or under the bed) or a few hours of decanting. Blend of 80 percent Cabernet Sauvignon with the traditional Bordeaux combination of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec. Lovely. WW 94. Ask the Wine WhispererQ: Are wines from Australia classified by region like the wines from France or Italy? Evan L., TampaA: No. There are no official rules for naming wine regions in Australia. In fact, winemakers often blend grapes that are grown in very wide areas, sometimes hundreds of miles away. Jerry Greenfield is wine director of the international Direct Cellars wine club. His book, Secrets of the Wine Whisperer, is available through his website.

THEATER REVIEWMaltz brings substance to Hairspray BY MICHELLE F. SOLOMONFlorida Theater On StageBig. Bawdy. Bold. Beautiful. Everything about the Maltz Jupiter Theatres Hairspray has volume, and then some ... from the bubblegum-bright lighting design to overdrawn characters that, while definitely animated, never come off as cartoonish, to the Maltzs always super snappy choreography thats as perfectly coiffed as a beehive hairdo plastered with Aqua Net (aka Ultra Clutch in the land of Hairspray). Based on the cult film icon John Waters 1988 movie, the musical is set in 1962 Baltimore, where a rambunctious and robust teenage girl, Tracy Turnblad (Mary DiGangi), becomes an almost overnight sensation to everyones surprise after auditioning for a teenybopper dance show, a la Dick Clarks American Bandstand. Here, its the Corny Collins Show. Theres more to it than that, however. While shes a typical teenager, the times in which shes blossoming are rife with strife. Baltimore has a deep divide, and it takes the chubby girl getting her spot on the very white Corny show to bring the issue of segregation into Maryland living rooms via television. I must say that seeing the musical in the midst of headlines claiming that Americas president, more than five decades after this show is set, allegedly used the word S*hole to describe African nations brought the somewhat usually sugar-coated presentation of race relations in Hairspray to another level. (A Black Lives Matter sign shows up in the production during a protest, too. That activist movement didnt begin until 2013, but the slogan drives the message home a little harder here, too.) Theres a balance in Maltzs Hairspray that teeters on just plain fun with a dab of poignancy thrown in, and its a credit to director Bill Fennelly, perhaps, who finds a way to slather on the schmaltz, while giving the audience more to chew on. For the actors who follow that fine line and play it to a T, their performances have as much nuance as you can muster from this lightweight book. Lets begin with the standout, Michael Kostroff, whose Edna Turnblad has the depth of her EE bra size. (Catch Mr. Kostroff in movie theaters right now, where hes appearing in Aaron Sorkins film Mollys Game, and you also may recognize him as slimy defense attorney Maurice Levy, his recurring role on HBOs The Wire.) While the role, traditionally played by a man since drag queen Divine originated Edna in the original movie, was made memorable for the stage by the frogthroated Harvey Fierstein, Mr. Kostroff brings more of a gentleness to Tracys mom. Mr. Kostroffs Edna is humble, sweet, and, genuine. And, boy, is he light on his feet. (At one point, the actor seemed to channel The Divine Miss M. Has he ever thought of doing drag as Bette Midler?). Divine, darling. Other actors who mine the characters for gold include Mia Matthews as the Corny Collins Shows producer, Velma Von Tussle, former Miss Baltimore Crabs, and pushy stage mother. Ms. Matthews stinging performance makes Velma every bit a Disney villainess, a cartwheeling Ursula who commands the stage in both her Act I solos The Legend Of Miss Baltimore Crabs and Velmas Revenge. Austin Holmes is a triple threat acting, singing, and dancing up a storm as Seaweed Stubbs, making his Maltz debut in a role he performed previously at Syracuse Stage; Philip Hoffman as Wilbur is so engaging as the Steve to Ednas Edie in the soft-shoe Youre Timeless To Me; Zane Phillips is perfectly princely as Link Larkin and Chelsea Turbin is the absolute Mean Girl, Amber Von Tussle. Taylor Quick slathers on the ditz as daffy Penny Pinkerton, and Lauryn Owen brings a sweet shyness to the role of Little Inez. Bringing down the house in Act II for the gospel-inspired I Know Where Ive Been is Altamiece Carolyn Cooper. Other leads include Lukas Poost as Corny Collins, and Jeanne Bennett, in multiple roles, from gym teacher to prison matron. As for the teenager at the center of the show, Tracy Turnblad, Mary DiGangi has played the role twice before, and that could be what accounted for what seems like a syrupy, surface portrayal. However, DiGangis energy is as electric as the multi-wattage lights on stage, which more than makes up for any other short falls. Also in the wish department had the dream sequences been a bit more, well, dreamy, it may have added some modulation in this show, which can get redundantly stuck on one high note. When Tracy can hear the bells in her fantasy of marrying heartthrob Link Larkin, there wasnt enough of a shift both technically and dramatically to put us into another world. Shout out to music director Helen Gregory and her nine-piece band, which sounds like a huge pit orchestra, and who easily glide along Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittmans complicatedly, energetic score. David Wanstreets choreography is, in its own right, a star of the show. Kathleen Geldards s costumes are delicious eye candy, and Gerard Kellys piled-high wigs are in a league of their own. Michael Schweikardts candycolored set looks like Willie Wonka stepped in and chose the paint. Schweikardts above-stage level apartment for the Turnblads adds an extra place to direct focus. Youll begin the evening with a smile plastered on your face from the opening catchy, and feelgood Good Morning Baltimore. It wont let up until long after the surprise spritz of who comes popping out of a giant can of Ultra Clutch, and the dancing up the aisles for the rousing closing number You Cant Stop The Beat. The Maltz Jupiter Theatre has a hit on their hands with Hairspray and theres no stopping that beat. Hairspray runs at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, 1001 E. Indiantown Road, Jupiter, through Jan. 28. Tickets from $58. Call 561-575-2223 or visit www.jupitertheatre.org.

Jan Norris FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINECousin to Palm Beach Grill opens at Royal Poinciana Plaza janNORRISjan@jannorris.com The recently redesigned Royal Poinciana Plaza in Palm Beach theyre downplaying the Poinciana in the name and calling it The Royal is bringing several food options to the island with a number of recent openings. Cousin to the Palm Beach Grill, and owned by Hillstone Restaurant Group, the new Honor Bar is a small upscale-casual eatery next door to the Grill. Its open for lunch and dinner, with burgers, sandwiches, appetizers and cocktails at the fore. With two bars and two TVs, it might be an option to catch a game. Its far from a sports bar, however; only three beers on draft and a wine list on the reverse says something about the crowd they want. So does a dress code and the dining Guidelines on their website. Best to consult it before you go, so you know not to bring young kids and to leave your Panama hat at home, along with your noncollared shirt or teamemblazoned jersey. Theyre open daily, 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. for lunch and dinner. Also in the plaza is Earth and Sugar, a retail space for the talented Janderyn Makris. The dessert maven opened her organic bakery of the same name on Dixie Highway in 2016 to accommodate clients from Palm Beach and Miami who order towering cakes and specialty baked goods. At the retail shop, find macarons, baby cakelets and beverages. Its also a conduit to ordering a full-blown fantasy cake for a special occasion. The shop is supposed to be open through May to test the retail market. Celis Produce has opened in the plaza, with the three Celis brothers bringing organic produce and juices as well as locally produced gourmet items to the island. Virginia Philip has opened a second Wine Shop here. The master sommeliers namesake Wine Shop and Academy is in downtown West Palm Beach.Vegan collective to openA womens foursome of chefs and cooks has thrown in together to create a vegan cooperative kitchen in Riviera Beach. The Bean Scene Vegan Collective Kitchen will be home to experienced teaching chef Nina Kauder, vegan baker Katy Belmont, vegan cheez maker Kelly Mulligan and salad wizard Amie Brenneman Miller. Each woman has her own business, but none had kitchens to speak of at least not good enough to take her foods to the next level. Ive known Katy for awhile, said Ms. Kauder. She was looking for a kick in the pants to do something of her own. Word got around to the others, and, We all started talking about working together in a commercial kitchen a bigger, better kitchen. She, along with the other women, had been working from small commercial kitchens with no storage for accommodating their foods or equipment. It was pack-and-leave every night, she said. My goal was to have a kitchen where I can leave things and come back the next day and theyre still there, she said. The collaborative space was a dream, and after a hunt, was found in a Riviera Beach warehouse, a former bakery that already had the essentials. While its a mere 1,000 square feet, and has only one oven so far, its going to work out well, she said. Were all on different rhythms, so no more than one of us should be there at one time. We got our keys last week, Ms. Kauder said. Im incredibly excited. She hopes to conduct vegan cooking classes there, and produce some fermented vegetables and juices, while the others will produce their foods for wholesale and some retail sales. Were planning on having a counter and cases for retail, she said. Expect a March opening for the kitchen on Killian Drive in Riviera Beach.Farewell to Caf LEurope founder It is with a heavy heart that I report the death of Norbert Goldner, a cofounder of Caf LEurope in Palm Beach, and the original in Sarasota. An icon in the local restaurant scene, Mr. Goldner and his wife and business partner, Lidia, ran the restaurant that would stand as the benchmark of fine dining in Palm Beach for decades. His reputation for European hospitality was nationally acclaimed, with numerous awards recognizing the restaurant. A number of cooks, and even servers took tutelage from him, and went on to own or run successful restaurants. He never forgot his diners that put him on top. Despite working feverishly in the kitchen during busy nights in season, he made time to round the dining room, checking on his diners meals and experience and collecting their opinions. More than once, discussing the business, he would say, Dining is not only about the food. Its the whole package. Its the experience. Mr. Goldner died Jan. 14; he was 77.In briefNow open: My Euro Deli, a grocery and farmers market specializing in Eastern European foods, including meats and sausages in the deli, and fresh produce, in Jupiter. Imported shelf-stable items fill grocery shelves. The shop is at 901 W. Indiantown Road, Jupiter. A redesigned and reimagined restaurant has opened in The Palm Beach Towers. Palm Beach designer Patrick Killian created 44 with suggestions from mid-century modern designs but with 21st century sensibilities. To match the rooms and new bar, both modern and comfort classics are on the menu, executed by two chefs from the Hamptons, Executive Chef Philip Kroesen and Sous Chef Timothy Rigas. Theyll have help from Chef Tina Kirin, the chef de cuisine of the former restaurant at the Towers for 35 years. KAUDER The Dish: Turkey club sandwich The Place: RH Rooftop restaurant, 560 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach; 561-804-6826. The Price: $18 The Details: The opening of the new RH Rooftop restaurant at Restoration Hardware has been one of the most talked-about events of the season. The light-filled space may remind some visitors of a Victorian conservatory, with marble-looking tabletops, crystal chandeliers and the healthy din of happy diners. For $18, a club sandwich had better be among the best. Fortunately, this one did not disappoint. Crisp, thickcut bacon and hearty slices of turkey mingled with sweet, ripe tomatoes and fresh greens. And about those fries they were crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside and none went to waste. The menu was small, but well chosen. Cheeseburgers and egg dishes looked tasty. We had an hour-plus wait for lunch on a Sunday, so we may wait until some of the buzz dies before returning. Scott Simmons SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLY

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.
