It also launched a collaboration between Dramaworks and the youth program at Compass, the Lake Worth-based gay and lesbian community center. Over the next few months, Compass youth will participate in an intergenerational digital storytelling project with select LGBTQ elders from the community. They will meet and interview the elders, then create a digital story to be presented in combination with live performance from the Dramaworks stage at a date to be determined. This project will not only preserve the stories of those whove lived challenging and triumphant lives, but also build bridges of empathy between generations, said Gary Cadwallader, director of education and community engagement for the theater. The chance to meet one on one with successful older LGBTQ community members offers our kids an opportunity to see what their future can be, at a time when they are going through major challenges as they discover who they are, said Claudia Harrison, Compass chief information officer. The elders will also take away an understanding of how todays LGBTQ youth see their world, and how they are experiencing their coming-of age. Outstage@pbd gives audience members an opportunity to view each production through our multifaceted life experiences, and engage with friends to reflect how these stories impact our lives, according to Mr. Cadwallader. The next Outstage@pbd event is during a Feb. 9 performance of On Golden Pond.

By now, he should have turned 91, and he should have been resting on the laurels of a distinguished career. The comments on art blogs that mention his work reveal he was known for his illustrations for the magazines of the day McCalls, Colliers, Fortune, The Readers Digest, Jours de Paris and Life. According to those who knew him, he was a man whose waist was as large as his talent. He was jovial, and always had a cigar hanging out of his mouth. But he died young in 1964 only 37 when he succumbed to a heart attack, leaving a wife and three children. Looking at his work, it is amazing to see the range of genres in which he worked. His illustrations for Life magazine included paintings on segregation, the Civil War and the Russian Revolution, The New York Times noted in his obituary. Among his most famous works was a series of illustrations of the opera Rigoletto. His landcapes and other works have a Modernist/Impressionistic quality that is beautiful. Born in 1927 in Worcester, Mass., he received a BFA degree from Yale University in 1950 and later served as an instructor at the Pratt Institute in 1950 and 1954, and then at the National Academy of Design, starting in 1961. All of those are big league and speak to his talent. Its obvious as soon as you see his work. Its for us to regret that his life was cut short.

There was a cart filled with framed mirrors and artwork waiting to be placed on display. The back of one piece stood out you could tell it was a canvas with some age and that it was beautifully framed. I nearly fell over when I flipped the oil painting to view the seaside scene. I cannot find a signature on this painting, but it is marked on the frame of the canvas Roberts, Morton and Gloucester. My friend Katie Deits, an artist and arts executive, immediately recognized the rocks in the painting, and noted theres a famous artists colony at Gloucester, Rocky Neck Art Colony.

Just because the government shutdown ended shortly after it began, it doesnt mean that it wont happen again in just a few weeks and it definitely doesnt mean that our great leaders in Washington covered themselves in glory. Quite the opposite. They cant even guarantee that they can handle their most rudimentary job, which is to keep the federal government functioning. When all is said and done, the bulk of the debate was about who would be held responsible for this debacle. It wasnt about the merits of the issues, but almost exclusively about how this mess could be exploited. Before they got down to business, what we witnessed was our top politicians all talking past the others, trying to push the poll numbers their way. Here we had Donald Trump marking his one-year anniversary as president by presiding over a breakdown that he had a large hand in creating. From the moment he was sworn in, actually long before that, he set a tone that makes it far too difficult to find the compromises that are essential for a democracy to operate. His insistence on constant, hateful confrontation makes civility impossible. He is aided and abetted by fellow Republicans who have abandoned any molecule of principle. In the name of self-serving ambition, they indulge Trumps worst instincts. Actually, he doesnt have any good instincts, but theyre with him, even though they know better. Of course, theyll drop him like a stone if he falters, but for the moment, since its in their interest to go along with his immorality, theyve displayed their amorality. Meanwhile, all the Democrats do is sputter. Theres no effective opposition. The partys guiding principle right now is to not be Donald Trump. Is that enough for those several hundred thousand women who organized their second annual resistance marches? Can they be counted on to turn out on Election Days 2018 and 2020, and actually vote this time against Trump and his GOP collaborators? Wouldnt it be great if they had someone to vote for? So far, the partys field of candidates seems somewhat barren ... so much so that there was a brief Oprah for President groundswell. The Republicans drew blood with their talking point that Americas armed forces were being unfunded while Democrats refused to keep the government operating because there was no deal to include legislation that would protect the 690,000 Dreamers from deportation. Dreamers are the kids brought into the country when their parents snuck in. Both sides claim to be sympathetic to their plight, but for a while, Trump and his GOP accomplices have been turning on them; Trump, of course, by Twitter: Democrats are holding our Military hostage over their desire to have unchecked illegal immigration. Cant let that happen! Trump doesnt comprehend that the fundamental art of the deal is based on credibility ... promises must be kept. But when he makes one, the ideologues around him quickly convince him to abandon it. For now, another crisis has been temporarily averted. Well lurch to the next one and the next one, accompanied by the constant finger pointing. Americans can do little but extend their own fingers at the lot of them. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. The limits of the resistanceChuck Schumer started a government shutdown he couldnt finish. The New York Democrat, among the shrewdest operators in national politics, stumbled badly because he succumbed to the siren song of the anti-Trump resistance. He believed that any charge could be made to stick to President Donald Trump, no matter how implausible, and chose the dictates of an inflamed Democratic base over common sense. His embarrassing climbdown after a short, mostly weekend shutdown shows the limits of the resistance. Yes, an anti-Trump midterm wave appears to be building, and Democratic activists marching in the streets by the tens of thousands and badgering Republicans at town hall meetings are energized. But this doesnt mean that Democrats can act with impunity so long as they are fighting under an anti-Trump banner. Schumer sought to attach an extraneous matter, an amnesty for so-called Dreamers, on a must-pass government funding bill and, when Democrats inevitably didnt get what they wanted, blame President Trump for the ensuing government shutdown. This effort depended on gravity-defying spin that proved sustainable for less than three days. The fact is that the Republican House handily passed a bill to keep the government open, with the support of the Republican president. Almost every Republican in the Senate voted to pass that bill through the upper chamber where it required a supermajority of 60 and therefore some Democratic votes while almost every Democrat in the Senate opposed it. Schumer forgot that the rest of the country doesnt regard Trump with the deep disdain and abiding alarm of the coasts and the major metropolitan areas. The party still has senators in red states that the president won handily who cant afford to indulge in anti-Trump flights of fancy. Five of them defected on the initial shutdown vote, and more would have broken with Schumer if the shutdown had endured. When Schumer was forced to buckle, it outraged a base that believes Trump needs to be resisted on all fronts and chased from office as soon as possible, and considers anything less the work of quislings. Nancy Pelosi didnt back the deal to reopen the government, and the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus said of Senate Democrats: They are getting their butts kicked. The political director of CREDO, a progressive advocacy group, called Schumer the worst negotiator in Washington. Hes not the worst negotiator, but he acted in flagrant disregard of the first and most important rule for winning a government shutdown dont be the one to shut down the government and paid a price. Its only a tactical defeat, and perhaps a temporary one. In exchange for Democratic votes for a temporary funding measure, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell promised to hold votes in coming weeks on DACA and other immigration measures. Theres still a good chance that Democrats can force a bad DACA deal, given that the GOP is divided on immigration and President Trump might be tempted to sign up for anything as long as theres notional funding for a wall. So, Schumer lives to fight another day, but can only do it shrewdly if hes more realistic than the resistance.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 1-7, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY You sometimes question how can I be so unhappy when Im married to such a charming and successful husband? But then you remember how he constantly puts you down in front of your family. How he belittles you and questions your intelligence. And how he constantly controls you, manipulates you, and prevents you from having normal relationships with friends and loved ones. Youre not a greedy person. All you want is to be happy, and feel appreciated in your life, and in your marriage. But you know deep down that this is never going to get better. Your husband is not changing. In fact, hes just getting worse. Divorce is something you never thought youd ever experience, but you know you must leave the marriage if youre ever going to have a chance at happiness. And you know nows the time. Your children have grown into adults and youre not getting any younger. But at the same time youre worried. You dont know where to start, or how all this needs to happen. What you do know is hes going to make things dicult as youve seen how hes dealt before with others that have crossed him. You feel all alone. Like a prisoner of your own circumstances. Youre worried that nobody will see you and your situation for what it really is. At times, you feel like it will be impossible to ever get out of this unless you leave only with the shirt on your back. But its not going to be that simple, as you need to secure your nancial future. All of this makes you think about whether you should just put your energy into saving the marriage (again). If you identify with this DRAMATIZATION youre likely married to a husband with a personality disorder. Hes probably a Narcissist. If youve never heard this before you should take some time to read up on narcissism. Everything will probably start to make more sense. Try your best to realize that you are not alone. Everyone, including you, deserves to be happy and feel appreciated. And just as you decided to do what ultimately led you to your husband, you can also make the decision to be free of him. While your divorce will likely not be hassle free, there are some basic things you can learn that can minimize your husbands ability to make the divorce process harder than it needs to be.

PET TALESFlu factorsCanine influenza viruses continue to spread BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationThe city of San Francisco and the province of Ontario, Canada, are the two latest areas where canine flu is making an appearance. The virulent respiratory disease has hopscotched the continent, with only four states remaining free of it: Alaska, Hawaii, Nebraska and North Dakota. Where it lands depends in large part on how social and mobile dogs are in particular areas. Dogs that travel are at risk, and dogs exposed to dogs who travel are at risk, says veterinarian Cynda Crawford, a canine flu expert at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine. Other dogs who are vulnerable are service dogs, police dogs, show or competition dogs, shelter dogs and dogs who visit dog parks, groomers or boarding kennels on a regular basis. The two strains of canine influenza, H3N2 and H3N8, can infect dogs at any time of year, not just winter. Although she hasnt seen many cases of the flu in her own practice, internal medicine specialist Lawren Durocher-Babek, medical director at Red Bank Veterinary Hospital in Hillsborough, New Jersey, says the flu seems to be worse in midwinter as well as late summer and into fall. However, it can be seen at any time of year, so it should always be on our radar, she says. If youve seen in the news that humans are being hit hard by the H3N2 flu virus and then you see that dogs also get H3N2, you may be concerned that you could catch the flu from your dog. Fortunately, thats not possible, says virologist Edward Dubovi, a professor in the department of population medicine and diagnostic sciences at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in Ithaca, New York. Think of influenza viruses as automobile types, he says. A brand of sedans, pickup trucks and convertibles may all be made by the same manufacturer, but they all have different profiles and accessories. Flu viruses are the same way: There are H3N2 human viruses, H3N2 pig viruses, H3N2 dog viruses and H3N2 avian viruses. Dogs do not transmit canine influenza to humans, but in at least one instance, cats in an Indiana shelter acquired H3N2 canine flu from dogs. Cats can also transmit influenza to each other. And although it is rare, your dog or cat may pick up human influenza virus from you. Pet owners sick with the flu should take care to avoid possible transmission to their pets, says Dr. Christiane V. Loehr, a veterinary pathologist and associate professor at Oregon State University Carlson College of Veterinary Medicine. Suspect that your dog has the flu because hes coughing, sneezing and feverish? Dont just walk him into your veterinarians lobby, where he could spread the infection to other pets. Alert your veterinarian beforehand so your pet can be examined in the car or taken to an isolation area through another door. Dogs diagnosed with canine flu should be isolated from other pets for longer than you might think: at least 21 days, and perhaps even a month. Wash your hands thoroughly after caring for a dog with the flu before interacting with other animals. Disinfect dishes and bedding separately, too. If your dog is one of those at risk a social butterfly or a road warrior or has physical characteristics such as a flat face or narrow nostrils that could make it difficult for him to breathe in the event of a respiratory ailment, consider getting him vaccinated for canine flu. Because it hasnt been around for very long in the grand scheme of things, not many dogs have been exposed to it, so they lack natural immunity.The vaccine may not stop a dog from getting the flu, but it has been shown to decrease severity of signs and shedding (of the virus), Dr. Durocher-Babek says.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 1-7, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY Palm Beachs best kept secret!www.specialoccasionscouture.com 561.242.0361 1900 Okeechobee Blvd., Suite C3West Palm Beach, FL HEALTHY LIVINGMental illnesses often are treatableNo family has a guidebook that instructs its members on how to navigate the challenges of living with mental illness. Nor is this a topic many of us feel comfortable discussing whether its our own personal struggle, or the struggle of a loved one. Perhaps, out of fear. Or shame. Or denial. Or just plain misinformation. Serious mental illnesses include a variety of diseases such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and major depressive disorder. Although these diagnoses can seem very frightening, its important to remember that, with the right interventions and guidance, these disorders often are treatable. During an acute phase of untreated mental illness, there may be times of emotional upheaval sometimes with bouts of volatile, combative and/or irrational outbursts and behaviors. Family members may not understand what is happening. They may feel out of their league and helpless in knowing how to intervene. Its not uncommon for some individuals with certain mental illnesses to deny the seriousness of his/her illness, or to have little insight into the damaging or worrisome impact their mood and/or behavior may have, not only on themselves, but on family life as well. These people may become resistant to or refuse the recommended treatments. Or else, they may become so obstinate or suspicious that they may doubt the best intentions of family members who are trying so hard to help. This can be an especially daunting prospect if a family member is concerned that the other might be experiencing a worrisome downward spiral. It becomes very difficult at these times for all parties to maintain a sense of shared alliance and respect.Sometimes, the side effects of the medications or treatment recommendations are so onerous to them, compliance may become a serious concern. In an attempt to get answers, families may consult with professionals, scour self-help books and/or the internet, or take proactive steps hoping to demonstrate their concern and support. But, sometimes, the harder they may try to be their best selves with family members, or to show their support, those efforts may unintentionally create more heartache and conflict. At its recent briefing luncheon, The Ryan Licht Sang Bipolar Foundation, addressed the above issues in a very powerful format. The foundation is dedicated to fostering awareness, understanding and research for early-onset bipolar disorder. Awareness and Understanding is their initiative dedicated to erasing the terrible stigma associated with Bipolar Disorder. At the luncheon, Paul Dalio, the award-winning screenwriter/director of the movie Touched with Fire, starring Katie Holmes and Luke Kirby, and his wife, Kristina Nikolova Dalio, the films cinematographer, spoke of Pauls personal journey with bipolar disorder. Paul described how his illness inspired his creative process and powered the authenticity of the film. Both the Dalios spoke candidly about the profound impact Pauls bipolar disorder has had on their relationship, and the sensitivity and respect each has learned to show the other as they navigated the sometimes tumultuous emotional challenges. Both said there is often a delicate balance about how much family members should intervene and when to back off. The Dalios spoke about the importance of forging a trusting relationship so each knew they could count on the others judgment to guide them through the tough times. Furthermore, they stressed the importance of having a team of doctors and professionals who they trusted to not just want Paul to be stable, but to thrive and live to his maximal potential. There is a lot we can learn about supporting each other when families are faced with mental illness. It is crucial to attempt to destigmatize the struggle, so individuals are best able to feel accepted and listened to. Creating a climate where family members believe were receptive to hearing from them and will support them through the process is key for maximal progress especially because individuals may worry that they will lose their autonomy and dignity if they relinquish control to family members who might assert that they know better how to intervene at volatile times. Taking an approach of listening quietly and encouraging those who are struggling to reach out for support takes tremendous patience and a willingness to hold back on offering judgmental advice or taking a superior stance. Struggling individuals often need a lot of reassurance and encouragement to trust the helping professionals at a vulnerable time. Its normal for everyone concerned to experience a flurry of emotions and to become frightened and discouraged about the future. Importantly, family members are so instrumental in either promoting proper treatment or undermining the process. Support groups, whether in person or online, also can be helpful, by offering a community of people sharing common concerns: This can remind individuals theyre not alone. According to a discussion on the website of the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill, Stigma causes people to feel ashamed for something that is out of their control. Worst of all, stigma prevents people from seeking the help they need. For a group of people who already carry such a heavy burden, stigma is an unacceptable addition to their pain. And while stigma has been reduced in recent years, the pace of progress has not been quick enough. When courageous people like the Dalios speak up unashamedly about their lives, progressive steps are taken to spearhead public awareness and acceptance.

Answer: Absolutely! Acupuncture has been shown to be effective in the treatment of PTSD symptoms for many years. PTSD is prevalent among military personnel, law enforcement and fire fighters, but can affect the everyday person that has experienced an event or events that they are unable to fully process so the result is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Patients present with a variety of symptoms, including anxiety, insomnia, irritability, feelings of hopelessness and flashbacks. I have to work to unravel the layers of emotional and physical response to the trauma to get to the root cause and begin healing. I primarily focus on using Auricular Acupuncture treatment, or ear acupuncture, for PTSD. This protocol has been shown to be effective for many years. Stimulating points on the ear alleviates and manages the symptoms associated with PTSD. Various natural therapies have been used for treatment but, a study published by the University of New Mexico showed acupuncture to be the most effective. For patients who have a fear or aversion to needles, I also offer electro-stimulation of points, or ear seeds, for a similar result. If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, please consider Acupuncture as key element in treatment along with consulting their MD.ADVERTISEMENT ACUPUNCTURE HEALTH AND HEALINGWendy Miller, Acupuncture Physical Diplomate of Oriental Medicine AcuWellness Group Acupuncture for Health and Healing Address: Downto wn Abacoa 1209 Main Street, #104, Jupiter, FL 33458 Phone: 561-557-6556 Website: acuwellnessgroup.com Email: info@acuwellnessgroup.comAcuWellness Team: Christy Bongiovanni: Acupuncture Physician, Diplomate of Oriental Medicine, Holistic Health Coach Ask the Health & Beauty Experts

the outdoors and animals, technology, sports, politics, housing and history, to name a few categories that depend on volunteers. With so many choices, where do you start to find the right place to give your time, energy, insight, or experience? First, youll find numerous nonprofits across the region and their contact information listed in this edition of Florida Weekly, along with stories of local volunteers to inspire you. The rest is up to you. Lets talk about something thats been bugging you or something youre worried about, says Sarah Owen, president and CEO of Southwest Florida Community Foundation, which awards grants to nonprofits. Thats how she once counseled students who were beginning their search for required volunteer hours. It makes all the difference in the world if youre connected versus just for the sake of volunteering, she said. Youre going to have a much bigger satisfaction. Or, she adds, look at what youre good at doing and ask yourself, How can I take this thing I do and love doing and expand it for someone who wouldnt otherwise have access? People volunteer for all sorts of reasons, be it courtand school-ordered service, an altruistic sense of civic engagement, or as a way to connect socially with other people who enjoy the same activities. Nonprofits are thankful for and in need of all of it. People just need to try something, said Angie Matthiessen, executive director of United Way of Charlotte County. Try one thing and start with what youre passionate about. And you kind of have to know whether you like to work with people or like to work behind a desk. Something as simple as answering a phone is so important to nonprofits. United Way of Palm Beach County has a database of some 6,000 people who volunteer in different capacities throughout the year, said Alexia Savage, senior vice president of communications and resource development. That includes people who sign up to help with CROS Ministries gleaning program, picking leftover produce in area fields for distribution by the Palm Beach County Food Bank. You spend a day doing that and you see literally the fruits of your labor, she said. You really see the results of your volunteerism when youre doing something like that, which I think is meaningful for people. Whatever youre passionate about, theres an organization out there that needs your help. I think the key is just making sure everybody in the community is engaged with an organization in some way, said Dawn Montecalvo, pr esident of Guadalupe Center in Collier County, which aims to break the cycle of poverty for Immokalee students through education and mentorship programs. The nonprofits in our community provide so many services and the county doesnt fund the social services. So having everybody engaged in that process is important no matter what organization it is. If you live here, you should hopefully find time to volunteer in some small way. Independent Sector, a national advocacy group for charitable organizations, estimates that on average a volunteer hour in Florida was worth $22.70 in 2016 based on federal payroll data with an added 12 percent to account for benefits. Its a rough estimate and Sectors website notes that it is very difficult to put a dollar value on volunteer time. It does suggest how valuable volunteers are to organizations even if they only put in a few hours now and then. By this estimate in Florida in 2015, 2,984,727 volunteers provided 459.7 million hours of service worth more than $10 billion. I think right now is so critical for us to acknowledge those moments where people are serving other people, Ms. Owen said. Its really a testimony to the goodness in our region. The Harry Chapin Food Bank, which provides hunger relief to residents of Lee, Charlotte, Collier, Glades and Hendry counties, utilized 6,100 volunteers over the last fiscal year who in all provided 40,400 hours of service, which comes to more than $900,000. Ultimately those dollar figures are less important than how each volunteer effects change in his or her community, Ms. Owen said. So its not just a transaction, number of hours served and thats the end of the story. Its what those hours mean. Robynne Ryals, volunteer gleaning manager for CROS Ministries On Palm Beach County farms, tens of thousands of pounds of delicious vegetables that would otherwise go to waste, typically because their shape or color makes them unwanted by stores, are gleaned by volunteers to help feed the hungry. On weekend mornings between the months of November and July, the volunteers with CROS Ministries gleaning program go out to participating farmers fields to gather produce. And we go out and we harvest it, we pack it, we put it on a truck going back to the Palm Beach County Food Bank, where they distribute it to needy people in our community, said volunteer gleaning manager and Lake Worth resident Robynne Ryals. Aside from her volunteer work with CROS, Ms. Ryals works full time with a company that distributes coffee and tea to cruise lines. She started as a gleaner for CROS five years ago after the last of her four children went off to school, and her mom and members of her church told her about CROS. When my last one graduated I got a little bit of that empty nest syndrome, so I needed to find something to fill my time, she said. Ms. Ryals said she was hooked the first time she tried gleaning. Knowing that Im helping my community and helping feed 100,000 people really means a lot to me, she said. A typical Saturday of gleaning may start at 7:30 a.m. and end around noon or 1 p.m. On some days there are only a handful of volunteers at one site and other times hundreds are spread across different fields, with youth or business groups participating. As a supervisor, Ms. Ryals also makes sure the gleaning groups stay safe and hydrated. Depending on the time of year, the veggies they pick include corn, potatoes, cabbage, peppers, cucumbers, squash, zucchini, tomatoes and, in the summer, mangoes, on farms that range from west of Clewiston to the Boynton Beach area, and north of Jupiter. We move all over, wherever there is a farm that will allow us to come on to their property and recover anything thats not going to grocery or theyre not going to sell, she said. Whatevers going to go to waste, they let us pick. CROS Ministries programs serve the hungry in Palm Beach and Martin counties. To learn about their volunteer opportunities, visit crosministries.org. For more information about gleaning, contact Keith Cutshall at kcutshall@ crosministries.org.Kelly Hammer, Guadalupe Center volunteer mentor A former elementary school teacher, Kelly Hammer volunteers as a mentor to an Immokalee High School student through Guadalupe Centers Tutor Corps program. There are now 100 students at the high school who benefit from the program that pairs adults, often professionals or retirees, with ninththrough 12th-graders. Mentors offer life advice such as managing money and help students stay on track to graduate from college. It also provides each student with a college scholarship of $4,000 per year they are in the program, so if they start as freshmen, up to $16,000. Ms. Hammer also works as director of community engagement for Guadalupe Center, which serves Immokalee children starting as young as six weeks old to break the cycle of poverty through education. She decided to volunteer as a mentor after meeting some of the students in the program in 2015, inspired by their hard work and dedication in school. Many were brought to the U.S. as children or are the first generation born here with immigrant families from places such as Mexico, Haiti, Colombia, Peru and Guatemala. Their parents often do not have a college or high school education. For mentors like Ms. Hammer, going to college was a given, she said. So its totally different to watch how motivated these kids are to put themselves through it. They have to qualify for Guadalupes program with an essay and by maintaining a 3.0 grade point average. They also agree to work after school for minimum wage, tutoring elementary school kids in Immokalee who have fallen behind in class. That money is theirs to spend, though it often goes to help their family with necessities. Her own mentee, Mikenly Abel, is now a high school senior. She was born in New York. Her family is from Haiti, where her siblings still live.

starting to receive college acceptance letters. Shes very excited and I feel like a nervous aunt, Ms. Hammer said. The Tutor Corp program needs new mentors every year with each graduating high school class. Ms. Hammer points out the time commitment is relatively small, including attendance at three required events per year. Other than that, mentors and mentees often stay in touch through phone, texting or email. Peoples big concern is that it takes a lot of time, Ms. Hammer said. I tell people its like having a grandchild or a niece or nephew in a different town. For more information on the Tutor Corp and other volunteer opportunities with Guadalupe Center, visit www. guadalupecenter.org or call 239-657-7711. The organizations Guadalupe Resale Shop in Naples also needs volunteers for jobs such as pricing and sorting, and for moving and picking up heavy items. Fritz Gloege, Harry Chapin Food Bank distribution center volunteer After he retired a few years ago, North Fort Myers resident Fritz Gloege, who had been donating to the Harry Chapin Food Bank, reached out to the organization to ask, What else can I do? The hunger relief nonprofit relies on thousands of volunteers to help distribute millions of pounds of food each year. It was happy to put him to work sorting food at its Fort Myers distribution center, where he spends about three hours on two afternoons each week. The bug bit me and Ive been there ever since, Mr. Gloege said. While Harry Chapin is known for distributing a wide range of items from canned goods to meats, it also distributed 6.6 million pounds of fresh produce from farmers and stores over the last year to help people eat a balanced diet. Some of the veggies theyve sorted, from boxes into smaller netted bags, include bok choy, cucumbers, zucchinis, carrots and dreaded sweet potatoes. The volunteers joke about those because the bad ones that they sort out for disposal go soft and smelly. Its like changing a bad diaper, he said. Once sorted, the food is taken to 150 nonprofit organizations across Southwest Florida serving about 28,000 people each week who are food insecure. Many have to make choices such as choosing between food and other necessities including medical care. You truly get the gratification of knowing that within the next week someone will be benefiting from what youve done now, Mr. Gloege said. So its not hypothetical, it is the reality of their life. Standing 6-foot-5, Mr. Gloege can easily reach into large corrugated containers to pull out food items for sorting, a boon to his fellow volunteers. Meeting and working with them, a mix of retirees, young students and court-appointed workers, he said, is his favorite part of the job. Weve been fortunate, and its time to just give back some of our time to help those less fortunate than ourselves. For more information on volunteer opportunities with the Harry Chapin Food Bank, visit harrychapinfoodbank. org or call 239-334-7007. Louise McDonald, Lee Health PAVES volunteer A retired pediatric physician, Louise McDonald told herself she wouldnt get involved with medical work after she and her husband moved to Southwest Florida in 2012. About six months later though, finding herself still bit by the health care bug, she looked into volunteering at Gulf Coast Medical Center, one of the six hospitals in the county run by Lee Health. After volunteering in the hospitals guest services program, talking with patients and families informally to make their hospital stay more pleasant, she realized she could do more to enhance their experience by focusing on patient safety issues. So, she created a program at Gulf Coast called PAVES (Patients and Volunteers Enhance Safety), a group of six volunteers who talk with patients about the best ways to avoid things such as getting an infection or falling, to communicating with hospital staff or understanding the care theyre getting. I realized sometimes we were encountering problems, as all hospitals do, and I wanted to be more proactive in addressing those problems, she said. Ms. McDonald would like to recruit more volunteers and expand PAVES to other hospitals in the Lee Health system, training them to teach simple safety concepts to patients. They need not be former doctors like her or have health care experience. It doesnt require a medical background, she said. It requires a bit of training but really it requires being able to interact with people in a warm and empathic kind of way so they listen to your message and hopefully follow the education you have imparted. Ms. McDonald is one of nearly 4,000 volunteers in the Lee Health system. In addition to PAVES and other programs, the hospital system is looking for conversationalists, caring and compassionate people age 18 or older who give their time by talking with patients to take their minds off injury or illness. The value of volunteers to Lee Health would be priceless, said Teresa FrankFahrner, director of volunteer resources. There are a lot of different organizations people can volunteer for and we feel blessed and privileged they chose Lee Health to share their talent, their time and their compassion. For more information on volunteer opportunities with Lee Health visit LeeHealth.org and click on the becoming a volunteer link at the top right of the page. To inquire about PAVES, contact volunteer resources at Gulf Coast Medical Center at 239-343-0636 or email Gloria.Bonventre@leehealth.org. Lynda Freas, volunteer for Tidewell Hospice and United Way of Charlotte County For Port Charlotte resident Lynda Freas, who volunteers to visit with patients of Tidewell Hospice, seeing them smile is its own reward. I stay anywhere from a half hour to 45 minutes with the patients, she said. If theyd like to talk and if theyre able to, then we have a nice visit. But just to be friendly and cheerful and make them laugh and smile, I think thats good for everybody. Ms. Freas started with Tidewell five years ago after her mother, who had been in their care, passed way in 2011. I wanted to give back to Hospice what they did for me, she said. Thats why I started with Tidewell. It was like a week after I retired I started with the training course, so I could be a volunteer. A not-for-profit hospice and palliative care provider that was founded in 1980, Tidewell cares for patients and their families in Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte and DeSoto counties. Ms. Freas usually spends her Thursdays with patients at a Tidewell facility and at senior assistedliving homes in Port Charlotte. Most of the patients she visits are in their 90s, and some suffer from dementia. They may not know your name, Ms. Freas said. I have one that Ive had for quite a while. Shes finally learned my name this year that was a break through. Some dont often have visitors. They just brighten up when you come to see them because so many of these folks dont have large families and they enjoy having that little time with somebody, she said. It just makes my day when somebody smiles, just to know that theyre glad to see you. Ms. Freas also volunteers for United Way of Charlotte County.

BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY FEBRUARY 1-7, 2018A14 | WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweekly.comA great outdoor sign can do it to you: Change the way you think, or what your morning schedule is, or how you propose marriage to your partner, or what you eat, or where you take your children on the weekend, or how you work or play, or even what you do in the next second or two. I come to a red light, tempted to go through it, then stop once I see SEE SIGN, A15 There is no program Ive heard about for replacing signage for tourist attractions. Patty Theilen Register, co-owner of GatoramaTake it as a signThousands of business signs damaged by Irma remain in need of repair, as sign companies scramble to fix them. MONEY & INVESTINGTariffs can bring inflation, retaliation from other countriesMost of America is in Goldilocks economy. The stock market keeps rising. Housing prices increase year over year. Inflation is under control. Unemployment is low. Wages are starting to rise. But the question on everyones mind is, when will these good times end and what will be the cause? Some analysts believe that we saw the beginning of the end when the president announced that he was immediately issuing tariffs on imported washing machines and solar panels. How can such a seemingly insignificant decision by the executive branch have such an effect on the global economy? The tariffs on washing machines and solar panels came about because Whirlpool and two solar panel manufacturers (Suniva and SolarWorld Americas) argued that foreign competitors had an unfair advantage over U.S. manufacturers. The companies stated that foreign manufacturers were getting government subsidies and were then dumping lower cost products in the U.S. So the Trump administration placed a 30 percent to 50 percent tariff on the products to level the playing field. To many people, this seems like a win for the U.S. But the next day, the manufacturer LG announced it would increase prices on its washing machines to compensate for these tariffs. Other foreign manufacturers were expected to follow suit. So anyone buying a washing machine going forward will soon feel the pinch of these new tariffs. On the solar panel side, these tariffs are anticipated to save solar panel manufacturing jobs. However, most jobs in this industry are not in the manufacturing of the panels but in the installation and servicing of them. Analysts believe that around 2,000 people in the U.S. are employed making solar panels but over 200,000 people make their living installing and servicing these panels. All of these jobs are at risk now because if solar panel costs rise, consumers would be less willing to switch to this type of energy production. That means fewer panels deployed and fewer jobs in this sector. Clearly, tariffs on washing machines and solar panels will not derail the U.S. economy. But Trump has indicated that this is just the start of his protectionist program. He is expected to roll out tariffs on larger sectors of the economy, such as steel imports. In 2017, the commerce department started 79 new major tariff investigations and many worry that a number of these inquiries could lead to new duties this year. Tariffs dont just raise prices and overall inflation but they also stifle innovation. Without duties, solar panel prices have decreased by over 85 percent over the last eight years and have resulted in a 12-fold increase in the amount of power produced by solar energy here in the U.S. Without foreign competition, most industry experts believe that solar energy would have remained unaffordable. Even more worrisome is that other countries will retaliate against the U.S. by initiating their own tariffs and a global trade war could start. Almost all U.S. Fortune 500 companies rely on exports to fuel their growth. Protectionist policies by other countries could easily put the world on a path to another recession. While the governments intention here is good in trying to help U.S. industry, it should tread with caution when it comes to potentially stifling global trade.

a billboard sign that I dont remember seeing and I look up at it. All it says is Disappear Here and even though its probably an ad for some resort, it still freaks me out a little and I step on the gas really hard and the car screeches as I leave the light. But none of that can happen (including the passage above, f iction from the novel Less than Zero by Brett Easton Ellis), if the sign itself disappears for some reason Hurricane Irma, for example. Since the hurricane, a lot of people known as sign makers have been working overtime, scrambling to keep up with the demand of customers to come replace signs, repair them or create new signs. ASAP. Irma arrived over Florida almost five months ago, the second week of September. And when it left, the storm had taken a lot of good signage with it, whole and piecemeal, public and private. That has cost U.S. taxpayers a bundle since they cover damage repairs the federal government decides to make through the Federal Emergency Management Agency; it costs state and local governments again, taxpayers; it costs homeowners associations in private communities; and it certainly costs business owners who advertise on billboards or marquees and may not be insured, or may discover insurance isnt going to pay fully for the cost of repair or replacement. There is no program Ive heard about for replacing signage for tourist attractions, says Patty Theilen Register, coowner with her husband Allen Register of Gatorama, the popular Palmdale roadside attraction on U.S. 27 in Glades County. We have applied for a disaster loan and that was part of the verification of loss. So, if we get approved for the loan before they run out of disaster money, we will (pay less) to have that replaced. All our billboards were torn up. Metromedia Technologies of Miami did both the branding and the work on Gatoramas billboards in southern Florida. Daily life in the sign worldA glance at business on the east and west coasts suggests the sign struggles are not over yet things are hopping for sign makers. Theres been an enormous increase in business since the hurricane weve just been inundated, said Christine Goza, a customer service representative at Signarama in West Palm Beach. Around her, telephones were ringing, orders were being taken and she even had to pause and shout, Will you take that, please? as a call came in near her. A hurricane is a sign makers friend, she noted. If you print that, dont get me wrong we dont love hurricanes and we dont welcome them. But business really picks up. That doesnt mean a lot more jobs in the sign-making business, necessarily. Some businesses added employees but not many, and only if they could. We added one person, said Mary Bullock, who with her husband Greg and more recently three of their children have owned Sign and Design Depot in North Fort Myers since 2005. The eight-employee company worked long hours right into December, sometimes in tandem with another company that installs the signs on high poles. The biggest struggle was to get acrylic and other materials in heavy demand around the state when she wanted them, she said. We didnt add staff for two reasons: One, finding them is almost impossible. And two, there are not many workers out there trained in my industry who can just go to work, explained Paul Hill, who with his wife, Terry, owns a Fastsigns franchise on the southwest coast. One of 680 worldwide, his store provides a remarkable variety of signs for property management companies in Naples, Bonita Springs and the greater Fort Myers area pool and tennis or golf club signs, parking signs, directional signs, as well as signage for such special events as the recent American Heart Association walk on Sanibel Island, or ArtFest in downtown Fort Myers, or the Lee County Fair. Hiring and training people when youre responding to a hurricane defeats the purpose, he added the training process in such a specialized business is too slow. So the Hills work 12-hour days, still. Right now, were totally slammed, he said. It happens in local governments, too (being slammed). In Lee County, for example, where the hurricane rolled south to north up the center of the county and into Charlotte County on Sept. 11, county officials and workers found themselves faced with greatly increased workloads that made traffic signage seemed the least of it, at first, officials said. But eventually the size of the job became clear: Big. Lee workers maintain more than 72,000 signs in the unincorporated county. In the end, they had 10,035 repair tasks resulting from Irma, said Betsy Clayton, the countys communications manager. And they didnt sit around. All Irma-related tasks were completed 100 percent as of Jan. 1, she noted. Total cost: $174,038. The county is seeking FEMA reimbursement, Ms. Clayton said. Meanwhile, in the four months following Sept. 19, the county received 346 sign applications for permits from unincorporated Lee, compared to 576 in a nine-month period before the hurricane.The new signsState codes for signs updated in 2014 require more stringent, careful and therefore expensive construction or repair of older signs grandfathered into the 2014 rules but now damaged. There are still quite a few signs open, because one of the other things that happened was a lot of signs were not up to code, explained Mary Bullock at Signs and Designs. So the signs that are really tall, with a lot of panels blown out, those are still not done. They take a new case, a different type of heavier frame. Some frames have to be rebuilt, and they have to have hurricane anchors or clips that go in behind panels, so the panels are held in. And the code restricts how large the panels can be. In one case, her shop created and finally installed a 10-foot by 10-foot sign on a shopping center entrance and she came away with a very confident opinion: Signs up to this new code arent going anywhere in any hurricane. That puts a sizeable economic burden on some businesses, but there is help, at least potentially. As far as repairs to business signs on private property, Ms. Clayton added, the (countys) Economic Development Office has been referring businesses to FEMA, the Small Business Administration and the Florida Emergency Bridge Loan for economic injury assistance. EDO staff participated in the local Bridge Loan review committee along with a consortium of professional bankers and the Small Business Development Center. From what we hear, companies are still assessing the impact of the storm on their revenue longer term and waiting on insurance for reimbursement for damage. Fastsigns has been working for some of those companies property managers. We dealt with one large community in Naples that needed 180 signs Riverstone, Paul Hill said. We did a lot of work in the Palazzo and 25 signs in Bel Largo. How such a hurricane season started for the Hills and their business, however, was neither predictable, nor easy. In the 16 years since weve been doing this, we had the worst September weve ever had, Mr. Hill said. We would have been better off being shut down in September. Some people in the business say, The hurricane must be great for you guys. Well, no, its not. People went into shutdown mode from Sept. 1 on, watching the approach of the hurricane. So there was little business. Then the hurricane hit, and we were able to reopen (two or three days later) after the storm. We could work, but we sat here our computers, our phones there were no phone calls. People had a lot of other things on their plates, too. Getting the water back, getting the power back. The areas damage was a lot more than fix the signs. Then October came, and suddenly business started booming. And it hasnt stopped.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 1-7, 2018 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE A17 BEHIND THE WHEELTop five vehicles to look forward to in 2018The North American International Auto Show in Detroit is a great reflection of where the nations motoring is heading. This year the message was clear: Well be buying more trucks, SUVs and crossovers. But even if the auto industry as a whole seems to be shifting into high gear to get off-road, there were still some solid debuts for more traditional cars. Among the new ones that will be arriving within the upcoming year, here are some of the brightest stars. Chevrolet Silverado Ford switched its F-150 a few years ago to an aluminum body, and the weight reduction was noticeable. Now the new Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is giving it a try with alloy cab panels (the bed is still made of steel.) The result is a massive 450-pound diet. Plus, theres a new frame and longer body that are designed with efficiency in mind. The unique front end is led by the gap between the fender and bumper. Its an aerodynamic aid for increased efficiency. How fuel frugal will the lighter, sleeker Silverado be? Well find out when mpg figures are released before the truck goes on sale late this year. Ram 1500 Not wanting to be left behind in the pickup arena, the (Dodge) Ram 1500 also premiered in Detroit. Its hopping on the aluminum panel bandwagon, too, helping it to lose 225 pounds. While the fresh design will likely generate showroom traffic, designers were also very clever with some of the mechanical upgrades. This includes a new eTorque system that utilizes an electric motor to help generate torque during low-speed scenarios. Floridians who know boat ramps might want to pay attention to this. Toyota Avalon Toyota is allowing its largest sedan to buddy-up to the Lexus brand. The new Avalon features a large grille that dominates the front end even more than its predecessor, and comparisons to the Lexus hourglass branding are inevitable. That kind of premium association is likely deliberate and welcomed by Toyota. Volkswagen Jetta The new Jetta looks like it borrowed design cues from its premium sibling at Audi. In fact, the sporty ridges in the hood and profile feel inspired by the A4. The practical side of this redesign is a longer wheelbase and more interior room. Mercedes G-Class Mercedes has been updating the same G-Class for nearly 40 years. So when they announce a new one, its a big deal. Just dont be too surprised if its difficult to tell the difference between the first generation and the new second generation. The military-grade appearance is what has been attracting the premium clientele, and thus, the slab-sided looks remain. But this redesign allows the company to finally add features expected in a $125K SUV everything from an S-Class level infotainment system to an independent front suspension. While those are the top five cars that will be coming to dealers this year, there are a few honorable mentions. The Buick Regal TourX has been available since late 2017, but its exciting to see the sporty wagon make its way to more dealers. The new Jeep Wrangler adds better-integrated interior options without losing its open-air 4x4 feeling. Plus, Ford will be doing plenty of talking about its new Ranger pickup this year, but it wont be available until early 2019. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com Chevrolet Silverado Ram 1500 ON THE LINKSBoca championship likely to focus on LangerThere is a new name, a new sponsor and a new defending champion, but the specter of Bernhard Langer still hovers over the Broken Sound Club even before play begins next week in Boca Raton. Sponsored by an insurance conglomerate and known as the Allianz Championship since it began in 2007, the second tournament of the year for the PGA Tour Champions is now called the Boca Raton Championship presented by Sallyport. Unchanged is the major benefactor, the Boca Raton Regional Hospital. The tournament has an annual economic impact of almost $20 million for Boca Raton and the Palm Beaches and has raised more than $1 million for the Boca Raton Regional Hospital Foundation. Since 2003, Sallyport has built a reputation on providing our clients with a full slate of global life and mission support, critical infrastructure, security, risk management, training and construction services. Sallyport, its mission statement continues, is recognized for its capability to execute rapid deployment of global logistics solutions to support complex operations at remote sites in some of the most austere, hostile and high-threat locations. Last February, Scott McCarron launched his best season ever in tour golf by making a six-foot eagle putt on the 18th green of the Old Course at Broken Sound on Sunday to vault past Kenny Perry and Carlos Franco to win the first of his four titles of 2017. Mr. McCarron played in all 26 tournaments on the senior circuit, finishing second thrice and second to Mr. Langer on the money list with $2,674,195. I never knew how good the senior tour was until I got there, he said at a pretournament luncheon early last month. His other wins were in the Constellation Senior Players Championship, the Dicks Sporting Goods Open and the Shaw Charity Classic. Still, its Mr. Langer, 60, a native of Germany whose American home is at the nearby Woodfield Country Club, who will draw most of the attention next week. He won most of the annual awards for 2017, including several Player of the Year citations. I am very blessed and pleased about how I played in 2017, Mr. Langer said recently. He captured three major championships and seven wins for the year, raising his career total to 36, nine shy of Hale Irwins record of 45. His peers on the PGA Tour Champions voted for Mr. Langer as Player of the Year for the seventh time, fourth in a row. Other nominees were Rookie of the Year Jerry Kelly, Kevin Sutherland, Colin Montgomerie and Mr. McCarron. The PGA Tour Champions keeps getting better and better, Mr. Langer added, and the great competition pushes me to find ways to improve so I can continue to compete at the highest level. The senior tours Player of the Year award is named after Jack Nicklaus. Mr. Langer also received the Arnold Palmer Award as the leading money winner for the sixth straight year and ninth time overall with $3,677,359; and the Byron Nelson Award for lowest scoring average, 68.03, for the fourth year in a row, sixth overall. Mr. Langer also surpassed Mr. Nicklaus as the vet sets all-time leader in majors, 10, with victories in the Senior PGA and Senior Open championships, and the Regions Tradition. He made the top 10 in 18 of his 21 starts. He has been the leading money winner every year but two since he turned 50 in August 2007. The second time was in 2011 when he missed several tournaments because of injury. He has made 209 career starts and earned $24,599,350. Scott McCarron had a wonderful season in 2017, his best ever, but is there any question why Mr. Langer will be the center of attention next week at Broken Sound?

Dramalogue to explore the life of Emily Dickinson BY JANIS FONTAINE pbnews@ oridaweekly.comOne of the best things about Palm Beach Dramaworks is the ancillary programming that comes with this great theater. In its occasional series, Dramalogue: Talking Theater, the company shines a light on unique aspects of the art. In his discussion of the poet Emily Dickinson on Feb. 6, host (and Dramaworks chairman of the board) Mark Perlberg will explore the reclusive life Dickinson led and the body of work that came out of solitude. This talk is in anticipation of the world premiere of playwright Joseph McDonoughs comic piece, Edgar & Emily, which opens on March 30 at Dramaworks. In the play, Edgar Allen Poe, fleeing a mysterious pursuer, takes refuge in the poets home, where witty dialogue ensues. Dramalogue takes the stage at 2 and 7 p.m. Tuesday at Dramaworks, 201 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. Tickets are $23. Call 561-514-4042 or visit www.palmbeachdramaworks. org.New art at three sitesCentennial Faces, a collection of photographs by Alvan S. Harper that depicts the lives of middle-class African-American citizens in Tallahassee 100 years ago, opens at the Richard and Pat Johnson History Museum on Feb. 5. The photos of the finely dressed people capture both their hard-earned prosperity and their abundant character. The photos will be on display until March 31 at the museum at 300 N. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach. Admission is free. For information, 561-832-4164; www. hspbc.org. The Norton Museum of Art will offer Symposium: Whitneys Sculpture in Context, a free conference of experts, from 1 to 4 p.m. Feb. 10. These scholars will discuss the issues raised in the Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney: Sculpture exhibition.

Broadway Baby is the intro followed by I Hate Men from Kiss Me, Kate, Show Me from My Fair Lady, So In Love and I Could Have Danced All Night, among others. The revue also will contain a section depicting conversations in song, which in this case will be a conversation about love as seen through the creative genius of songwriters Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, George and Ira Gershwin, Burton Lane and E.Y.

New gi items, hostess gi s, accessories & home decor arriving weekly! LATEST FILMSHappy End1/2Is it worth $10? YesThe first thing you should know about Happy End is that there is no such thing as a happy ending in a Michael Haneke (Funny Games, Amour) film. There may be an okay ending, as is the case here, but thats as good as it gets with him. One reason this lack of convention works for writer/director Haneke is that he doesnt tell traditional stories with standard character arcs. In Happy End he gives only glimpses of characters lives. We stop in on this wealthy French family, stay with them for a bit and then leave when the credits roll (the film is a mix of English and French with subtitles). What happens is at times good, bad, or just okay. Kind of like real life. This is not to say Haneke isnt conscious of the camera; his films are quietly full of technique that works on the viewer in the subtlest of ways. For example, theres a scene in Happy End in which patriarch Georges (Jean-Louis Trintignant) is by himself in a wheelchair moving down a sidewalk in the northern French city of Calais. The camera is across the street, moving parallel with him as he rolls along for what feels like a long time. He stops to speak with six young men (we later learn they are from Africa) and a middle-aged white guy. We have no idea what they say. Thus its a long scene void of dialogue in which the camera remains away from the action, which keeps viewers at a distance; only later, in a scene with his barber (Dominique Besnehard), do we learn what Georges likely wanted from the men. Conversely, theres a scene earlier in the film thats a closeup of the writing of a dirty email. We read every naughty word of it, which is extremely personal. Thus with Haneke its a constant push and pull with people you dont necessarily like, but then dont entirely dislike either. Its a fascinating cinematic experience if you surrender yourself to it which isnt easy given the lack of mercy Haneke sometimes shows for his characters. You also have to trust that all story beats will make sense by the end, because they do. For example, the opening shot is through the POV of a cell phone camera as it records a womans bathroom routine. We dont find out whos behind the camera until the very end, but the scene effectively establishes the aforementioned idea of voyeurism and dropping in on these characters lives. There isnt much of a plot. Georges daughter Anne (the French treasure Isabelle Huppert) runs a successful business, but her son Pierre (Franz Rogowski) is a mess. Her brother Thomas (Mathieu Kassovitz) is unhappily married to Anais (Laura Verlinden) and struggling mightily to raise his daughter Eve (Fantine Harduin) from his previous marriage. They all seem to be decent people, some with dirtier secrets than others, and none particularly impressive in any way. If you want your movies to provide escapism, dont see Happy End. But if youre okay with a slice of life approach that has interesting things to say in some unconventional ways, give this one a shot and see how happy you are in the end. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> John-Louis Trintignant and Isabelle Huppert also played father and daughter in director Michael Hanekes previous lm, Amour (2012). Did you know? FILM CAPSULESHostiles (Christian Bale, Rosamund Pike, Wes Studi) A Civil War veteran (Bale) who has spent his post-war life hunting Native Americans is forced to escort a Cheyenne chief from Colorado to Montana. The story is preachy and labors in spots, but Bales performance is so superb its worth the price of admission alone. Watch closely for his facial expressions and mannerisms truly tremendous acting. Rated R.The 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 1970s. Director Steven Spielbergs latest is a good drama that tells a good story and is by no means a disappointment, but its also unlikely to be the strong Oscar contender many are expecting. Rated PG-13.Downsizing (Matt Damon, Kristen Wiig, Christoph Waltz) With the promise of a better life, Paul (Damon) and his wife Audrey (Wiig) agree to shrink themselves and live out their days in a micro-community. It doesnt go as planned, of course and worse, the film goes in unexpected directions that dont work. A definite disappointment from writer/director Alex ander Payne. Rated R.

B8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 1-7, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYbe played by veteran Florida actor John Felix and Ethel will be played by sometime visitor to Dramaworks Pat Bowie. If you have seen these performers before, you know the surprise. Felix is white and Bowie played the matriarch in Dramaworks A Raisin in the Sun. In fact, later we will be introduced to their daughter played by the acclaimed African-American actress Karen Stephens; her boyfriend, Billy, will be played by Dramaworks stalwart Jim Ballard who, among other things, played the Irish boat owner in Dramaworks The Cripple of Inishmaan. Just to put one more spin on it, the actor orginally hired to play Norman was black. But he had a personal situation arise, and Felix, a reliable hand in the region, happened to be available. But at no point will the multi-ethnic casting be alluded to in any way. The universality of the themes in Ernest Thompsons 1979 play crosses all ethnicities and generations, and that underlay the thinking of Producing Artistic Director William Hayes when he chose his season. The idea intrigued Paul Stancato, who directed last seasons acclaimed Collected Stories and assistant directed Long Days Journey Into Night at Dramaworks. He agreed to helm this production. The play doesnt deal with race. It deals with people getting older, family dynamics, mother-daughter relationships, neglected children, families pasted into other families Its a challenge to the audience: Can we not see color, can we not see ethnic backgrounds, but see the universality of it. Its a frequent argument for the now widespread use of color-blind casting in which parts are not cast with the ethnicity that they have been traditionally or even as the specifics of the role might dictate. It has been commonplace when casting Shakespearean plays, more controversial in such works as an all-black Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Ms. Stephens, who won a Carbonell for her soldier in Zoetic Stages Fear Up Harsh and is Carbonell nominated this year for her modern day Mother Courage in Theatre Labs Motherland, is comfortable with it in this case. The way Im looking at it is race is not a factor because I think the family dynamic is so powerful and universal that it makes the race question moot. Like say if we were a real family and John Felix was my father and Pat Bowie was my mother, I wouldnt walk into the room and say, oh, John Felix is white and Pat is black. Its just normal. She acknowledges that the audience might have to make some effort in the classic theatrical trope of suspension of disbelief. You cant ignore your eyes. You come into the theater and you see Pat and John on stage and you say its a black woman and white man. But after a while it becomes irrelevant. Eventually, the issues that the characters are facing will resonate louder in their familiarity than any visual distraction of racial differences, she and Mr. Stancato said. The play centers on the aging couple spending their 48th summer on the tranquil titular spot. But mortality is unverving the nearly 80-year-old Norman. Under his crusty and curmudgeonly exterior, his physical condition and, more prominently, mental acuity are dissolving. Their peace and quiet is upended when their grown but troubled daughter, Chelsea, arrives, reviving the flinty relationship she has with her parents. She is hoping to leave the 13-yearold son of her boyfriend with them while she goes to Europe with her boyfriend. Alone in the middle of nowhere, the teenager and Norman bond. When Chelsea returns now married to the boyfriend, the rocky relationship between Chelsea and Norman resurfaces, forcing the two to work at a reconciliation. The play was relatively successful, although it went on to a stronger afterlife in regional theaters, even spawning a 2005 Broadway revival with James Earl Jones and Leslie Uggams. But much of its fame stems from a 1981 film version with Katharine Hepburn, Jane Fonda and Henry Fonda, who won an Oscar in his final film role. The only other change is that Mr. Stancato has set the play in 1988 rather than the present so that cyber devices would not get in the way. I didnt want the (teenager) to have a Gameboy or iPad that would inhibit the art of conversation, that would get in the way of his relating with Norman. A crucial element of the play is how the youngest generation manages to make a connection with the oldest generation. Further, its set in 1988, rather than the original 1978, because audiences can better accept a mixed race couple in that time period. What Ernest Thompson delivered to us was a story that gives us three generations you can have the Boomers, Gen-Xers and Millenials all get something different from the same play, Mr. Stancato said. Broadway Babies: The Songs That Made Broadway Broadway>> When: 7:30 p.m. Feb. 2 and 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Feb. 3 >> Where: Rinker Playhouse at the Kravis Center, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach >> Cost: $40 >> Info: 561-832-7469 or log on to www. kravis.org as a musical conversation. First theres attraction, then everythings fine, then it all falls apart, you wish you were in love again and hopefully you will be. That section of the revue will close with an eleven oclock number, he said, which is theatre-speak for a big hit song from a show that defines both the leading character and the show itself in this case, What Did I Have I Dont Have from On A Clear Day You Can See Forever and Some People from Gypsy. The final eleven oclock number for our show will be Theres No Business Like Show Business, Mr. Day said. But before that youll hear even more songs from iconic musicals. There are about 35 songs in the whole thing. Singer and musical director Eric Comstock, along with vocalists Carole J. Bufford and Marissa Mulder, will journey through the history of the Great White Way in what he described as an unforgettable, show-stopping event. I devised the whole thing, wrote the script and will also take part as narrator, he said. But my cast brings it all to life. Theyre all old friends of mine. Eric Comstock is a brilliant pianist-singer, one of the top two or three in cabaret today. Hes very witty, very urbane and endlessly skilled in music. Carole Bufford and Marissa Mulder travel the world doing this kind of thing. Marissa, for instance, was the winner some years ago of the Nol Coward Prize for song. Carole is no stranger to this as well and this is the third show theyre doing together with me. Mr. Day is an English-born theater veteran who also spent more than 40 years in the advertising field. He is a trustee of the Nol Coward Foundation, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and was awarded the prestigious Order of the British Empire. But he contended it is his experience in the advertising world that guided the construction of Broadway Babies. Popular song is very similar to advertising, he said. Youve got to be concise, youve got to be personal and get into your audiences mind. You need an immediate connection and I think a popular song is probably the most effective way, because when you play it, people remember it. They remember where they were when they first heard it. It all comes floating back and quickly, indeed. If you dont get them quickly be it in a song or an ad then theyll turn on to something else. Mr. Day added he hopes audiences will turn on to this production and take from it a memorable couple of hours steeped in legendary Broadway songs all done in a classy cabaret format. I hope theyll just enjoy it, he said. Its not a highly intellectual experience. Nothing heavy. Cabaret never is. But its a unique opportunity to revisit iconic, unforgettable musical numbers that have helped shape American Musical history. Its an experience. It washes over you, it lifts you, youll smile and really enjoy it. Broadway Babies: The Songs That Made Broadway Broadway will play three performances at the Rinker Playhouse, inside the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, located at 701 Okeechobee Blvd. in West Palm Beach. Show times are 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 2 and 1:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 3. Tickets cost $40 each. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 561-832-7469 or log on to www.kravis.org.

Behold, A New Eden: Laura Woodward and the Creation of Palm Beach opens Feb. 10 and runs until May 20. Guests will find oil paintings and watercolors painted at sites from Jupiter to Miami, which likely helped to lure Henry Flagler to Palm Beach. Laura Woodwards accomplishments as one of the Hudson River School painters gave her access to the moneyed group of art fanciers who wintered with the wealthy, including Henry Flagler, in St. Augustines Ponce De Leon Hotel. But Woodwards love and reverence for nature drew her to the tropical jungles further south. Deborah C. Pollack, in her book Laura Woodward: The Artist Behind the Innovator Who Developed Palm Beach, says Woodward persuaded Flagler to extend his East Coast Railroad southward and to build the Royal Poinciana Hotel, bringing a thriving tourism trade to the island of Palm Beach and prosperity to workers on the mainland. Woodward would become hugely important as an artist, but as an early champion for Palm Beach County, her legacy is secure. The gardens are open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. Gallery and garden exhibition talks are offered at 11 a.m. Wednesdays and 2 p.m. Sundays. The Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens are at 2051 S. Flagler Drive, just south of downtown West Palm Beach.

Sundance gives voice: the 2018 festival BY ERIC RADDATZeraddatz@ oridaweekly.comDo you hear what they are saying? Robin Williams asks of the living not only a roomful of his students, but us. Then he whispers the answer, pointing to those who once filled their seats gazing silently and eternally from photos on the wall: Carpe Diem. Seize the day! That clip from the 1990 movie, Dead Poets Society, lends a haunting poignancy to the tender new Alex Gibney film, Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind, one of 110 movies selected from a field of 13,468 submissions to screen last month at Sundance 2018, the celebrated Utah film festival founded and still shaped by actor Robert Redford. The late Mr. Williams won Best Actor in a Best Picture film for delivering that advice, first given by the Roman poet Horace, who added these words: quam minimum credula postero put little stock in the future. Those who brought their artistry to Sundance had taken the advice: Seize the day, and speak, yes. But also listen. To all the voices. As for putting stock in the future, Hollywood dealmakers and distributors ignored Horace and Robin Williams to keep their eyes firmly on their investments at Sundance, jostling to find that one great indy film that could make them millions. I traveled to Park City, home of Sundance, not for the jostling or the deal, but for the art to see scores of talented filmmakers deliver sometimes compelling movies that give voice and image to the marginalized lives of women, Native Americans, immigrants and African Americans. This year, in particular, seems to cry out for those who can speak for the once ignored, a fact not lost on Mr. Redford now or in the past. Riding the crest of American political turmoil that includes such powerful social movements as #metoo and Black Lives Matter, they seized the day and spoke. We need to support you by creating a platform so your voices dont stay in the margins, Mr. Redford told the crowd of filmmakers, actors, and industry professionals, kicking off the 2018 festival at the Egyptian Theater in Park City. We will support you aggressively and let you know: Your voices really do count. A lifelong horseman and skier who founded the Sundance Mountain Resort in the Rockies in 1969, Mr. Redford set up a film lab at Sundance in 1980 to encourage marginalized voices and talent. Then he created a mechanism to let those independent filmmakers find audiences. The voices could be heard, but there was nowhere to go, he recalled. I thought, If we had a theater or place where they could show each others work, we might create a community that would grow to a larger audience. That was 1985. It took a while for it to catch on, but when it did, it caught fire. This years field modeled that vision. Here are some of the films that moved me. Blindspotting Directed by Carlos Lopez Estrade, the film follows a black man, Collin, living in Oakland and counting down the days of his probation. Hes constantly anxious, worried about even the smallest infraction that could land him back in jail. But fate intervenes when he witnesses a police officer shooting another black man. Suddenly he has to decide: Get involved and speak up, possibly jeopardizing his freedom, or remain silent, forever marked by selfish restraint and the injustice it would surrender to? Sundance director John Cooper introduced the film to a packed house as sassy but to my mind its significantly more powerful and troubling. Monsters and Men Directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green, benefactor of the Sundance Institute Directors and Screenwriters Lab, the films protagonist, Manny Ortega, captures the murder of a black man in New York City on a cellphone. Like the lead character in Blindspotting, he must decide whether to make the video public, putting himself at risk from the cops, or whether to remain silent. One of those cops is a black NYPD officer who regularly gets pulled over by white cops, and begins to resent the injustice of a justice system he defends with his life daily. Mr. Greens sensitive approach to storytelling offers nuanced and complex voices both to those who are black, marginalized and afraid to speak, and to good police officers too often lumped together with a few bad ones.Jane Fonda in Five Acts, Seeing Allred, and especially RBGThe festival also happened to coincide with the womens march, which brought hundreds out in the fresh snow blanketing Park City to commemorate the millions who marched with a unified voice following Donald Trumps inauguration a year earlier. The brisk morning protest was powered by such resistors as Jane Fonda and Gloria Allred, whose voices now echo worldwide, thanks in part to films in contention at the fest. But more than to any filmmaker or star of the silver screen, the day belonged to a progressive feminist who has proven time and again to be a final voice for the disenfranchised in our nation: Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. On the eve of the womens march, festival organizers premiered the CNN documentary RBG. Tracing Justice Ginsbergs rise from her early days in Brooklyn to the Supreme Court, where she gives judicial voice to every woman in the nation, the film also captures the endearingly sweet personal life she shared with her late husband, who did all the cooking (who knew?). And it shows her modestly adorable reaction to the rise of her popularity among millennials, many of whom embrace her occasional notoriety or her charming eccentricities (shes been known to fall asleep during speeches), referring to her affectionately as Notorious RBG. The importance of this film and of women in contemporary society not to mention the age of Justice Ginsburg, who will turn 85 on March 15 this year was lost on none of the hundreds who crowded into one of the two largest venues in town, Park Citys Municipal Athletic & Recreation Center, or MARC, to see and hear her speak for the occasion. I was fortunate to sit close to her, only a few feet away. And I was even more fortunate to be able to ask her a question realizing as I did, I would likely never have another chance to query a Supreme Court Justice of the United States. Whats left on your bucket list? I said Whats left that you still want to accomplish and see? She answered slowly, so that all could hear. Id like to see this court do the job that it has been doing for over 200 years. To do it in a way thats faithful to a Constitution I believe was meant to govern us through the ages, from one generation to the next. She paused. I have said many times that our Constitution starts, We the People of the United States in order to form a more perfect union I hope I can continue to be a part of making that more perfect union. Think of where we started. Who were the founders? Who were the people that counted and voted? They were all white male and property owners. I feel the genius of our constitution is that over the course of (more than) two centuries, We the people now includes people who were left out at the start. People who were held in human bondage. Half of the population. Women, Native Americans. None of them counted in the beginning. So the idea of a Constitution that is still being perfected, that is ever more inclusive (It) is a tremendous honor that I have this job, and a huge responsibility. Thats Robert Redfords idea in film, too. But hes only 81.Inventing Tomorrow Laura Nixs aptly named documentary gives a voice to science now under siege by those who would undermine it for gain or religion, or simply dismiss it, as some officials in the Trump administration have done, including the president, and as Florida Gov. Rick Scott did in 2015 when he directed state agencies not to use the term climate change. Young inventors from Indonesia, India, Mexico and Hawaii look to save the world by exploring scientific solutions to our biggest environmental challenges, all participating in ISEF, the International Science and Engineering Fair. These young people had flown in to attend Sundance 2018, rousing and inspiring the crowd.

The Devil We KnowThis troubling documentary follows the legal cause and battle that trial attorney Mike Papantonio took on for many who were stiff-armed and ignored by DuPont. The corporation had used a chemical known as C8 to make the polymer Teflon since the 1940s. Some families who used products containing the chemical suffered, having children with birth defects, developing cancer, and enduring other awful effects. The importance of the movie is that it is something corporate media ignored for over 50 years, Mr. Papantonio said, speaking from his office in Pensacola. It is the first time the story has been told outside of the courtroom. This is a documentary that is going to uncover a lot of stuff that has been ignored. Deposition videos and disturbing footage from those harmed show decades of neglect and point to corporate knowledge that C8 was causing irreparable damage. To make the film, director Stephanie Soechtig of Fed Up and Bowling for Columbine fame got nearly 400 backers from an Indiegogo page. They raised nearly $40,000, a pittance in filmmaking that may nevertheless have a potent impact on callous corporate injustice.Game changers The new documentary by Academy Award-winning director Louis Psihoyos and executive producers James and Suzy Cameron took on the meat industry by looking closely at the science of plant-based eaters who dominate in their sports fields. From elite special forces trainer and Ultimate Fighter champion James Wilks to world record-holding strongman Patrik Baboumian, surfer Tia Blanco, Olympic Silver Medalist Dotsie Bausch, ultramarathoner Scott Jurek, NFL wide receiver Griff Whalen or boxing heavyweight title contender Bryant Jennings, one thing seemed sure: The old wisdom about needing meat protein to excel physically is myth. But in addition to helping athletes achieve success, the film reveals, lessening animal consumption by humans could also help preserve the Earth, since 15 percent of our water is used for livestock we eat, and CO2 emissions from flatulent cows on the planet contribute significantly to greenhouse gasses. One of the best ways to help animals is to stop putting them in our mouths, suggests strongman Patrik Baboumian. Someone asked me, How can you get as strong as an ox without eating any meat? I said, Have you ever seen an ox eating meat?Our New President Moscow-born director Maxim Pozdorovkin, who with Mike Lerner made the British documentary Pussy Riot: A Pink Prayer about the court cases of the feminist, anti-Putin Russian rock group Pussy Riot, now tells the story of Donald Trumps rise to the presidency completely through the voices of Russian media. He includes personal YouTube videos of Russians who support Mr. Trump in the hope it will bring peace for their families, and he adds footage from Russia Today. Put in place by Russias President Vladimir Putin, Russia Today is the only media allowed and recognized by the country. The channel embraces its role as propagandist and pushes stories that represent Russian patriotism, even offering some rather theatrical takes on the American election of 2016: a Siberian mummy cursing Hillary Clinton, for example, and an accredited doctor reporting on air that Mrs. Clinton suffers from retardation. Staying true to the telling of this story even if its totally fake, the film opens with a nutshell quote from the late science fiction author, Phillip Dick, who wrote a novel that became the 1982 film Blade Runner. Fake realities will create fake humans. Or, fake humans will generate fake realities and then sell them to other humans, turning them, eventually, into forgeries of themselves. LizzieAnd finally in what seems to be a classic parable about what happens to those who dont listen, Chlo Sevigny and Kristen Stewart star together as Lizzie Borden and a live-in maid, Bridget, based on the true story. We see Lizzie rising up and killing her abusive, learning-resistant father and stepmom yes, with the famous hatchet. Oh, if only that man had taken the time to listen.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 1-7, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B19The dish: Egg Sandwich The place: TooJays, 419 Lake Ave., downtown Lake Worth. 561-582-8684 or www.toojays.com. The price: $6.29 The details: This was the first TooJays I ever visited probably 30 years ago. If I recall, I ordered the cheese blintzes. Theyre still on the menu. But for breakfast, this sandwich always tastes fresh fluffy scrambled eggs vie for space on a perfectly toasted bagel along with cheddar cheese and thick-sliced bacon. You can order fruit as your side, but the home fries, stirred up with bell pepper and onion hit the spot. Sc ott Simmons As diner s become more fitnessobsessed, chefs adapt their menus to satisfy them. One of the ways Executive Chef Ricky Gopeesingh did that at Sinclairs Restaurant at the Jupiter Beach Resort was to offer the Earth Grain Bowls to the carte du jour. The bowls contain tuna, chicken or shrimp and are paired with things like baby kale, quinoa, roasted tomatoes and beets, or saffron split peas, goat cheese, edomame or lychees. With all the health-conscious clients, vegans, vegetarians, gluten-free and special diet guests we accommodate every year, it was important to have a section of the menu that we could easily tailor to their needs, Chef Gopeesingh said. And with that in mind the Earth Grain Bowls were conceived. They are full of healthy choices that are gluten-free and packed with earth-grown proteins, essential vitamins and minerals. He said the restaurants clientele, whether they are a hotel guest or a local, love the fact that they can come to the Sandbar or Sinclairs and we take care of their special request and needs in a very efficient manner. Sinclairs features Modern American cuisine, he said. Its slanted towards more fresh seafood, but being a resort restaurant, the menu is designed so there is always something for everyone. There is a creative edge to it with foods that are recognizable and full of original and memorable dishes. He invented the Dare burger, a peanut butter and grape jelly cheeseburger, to appeal to what he calls adventurous and young hipsters. Its all about combining two iconic food staples that everyone is familiar with that just taste really, really amazing, Chef Gopeesingh said. Its been a big hit. He tweaks his menu often but wont even try to select which menu item he likes most. I have no favorite, he said. Thats like asking, do you have a favorite child? which I do not. Its all about creating great distinct flavors in each dish. This season, Chef Gopeesingh is adding bronzino (a silver-skinned fish) with roasted butternut squash to the Earth Grain Bowl section, smoked trout mash served with Atlantic Salmon, tuna tataki served with a vegetarian avocado cucumber roll and a Carne Asada lamb rack with a coconut milk yucca, to name a few of the notables. Wine dinners and beer tasting are in the works for the summer. Many people in Chef Gopeesinghs family enjoy creating culinary delights. My family is full of really good cooks spouse, mom, dad, brothers, daughter, son and cousins, he said. If you are a member of our family and you are not a good cook you dont belong in our family. Born in Trinidad, Chef Gopeesingh moved to New York City when he was 22. He wanted to become an architect, not a chef. But life throws you many curve balls, he reflected. Now, instead of designing buildings, its plates and culinary displays along with flavor profiles. He spent the early years of his career working with several young and upcoming chefs in fine dining French, Southwestern and Italian restaurants in New York. They provided him with a great foundation from which he still draws upon, he said. With my background in architecture, making Alfred Portale-esque towering plates was right up my ally, Chef Gopeesingh, who currently resides in Lake Worth, said. He likes to listen to music when he cooks. Music is a must, along with a glass of wine, of course, and I only cook with the wines I love to drink, he said. His music of choice is Reggae, whether its Old School or Cali reggae. His favorite artists are Bob Marley, Rebultions, J Boog and Stick Figure. Over the years, he has experienced many surprising moments. One of the most memorable, he said, was when he worked as a sous chef in a country club. He remembers an evening when the kitchen was short-staffed. I rushed the sauce for my special and I had to serve it he recalled. The dish was on the first ticket of that evenings service and we were already busy. I was disappointed in myself. I tasted the sauce again and I said out aloud, to no one in particular, that is was the worst sauce I ever made in my life. A few minutes later, the server came running into the kitchen and said a member loved my special and said it was the best thing he had ever had. That member was the president of the club! What he had thought was a big failure turned out to be a roaring success. Not fond of sitting still for long, Chef Gopeesingh keeps busy outside of work doing construction projects of all kinds, he said. Some of those projects and walking many miles at work help keep him in good shape.

Yes, thats when the crme de la crme of art and antiques dealers descend on South Florida for some of the worlds finest shows. A couple of them are produced by a local firm, Palm Beach Show Group. The Palm Beach Jewelry Art & Antique Show, set for Feb. 14-20, will bring dealers from around the world to the Palm Beach County Convention Center. It opens with a private preview and vernissage on the 14th, but the rest of us can dream a little throughout the weekend. And, if previous shows are any indicator, visitors also can learn something through the lectures and other programs the show offers. General admission is $20; www.palmbeachshow.com. That same week, Palm Beach Show Group also will offer the Palm Beach Fine Craft Show. Set for Feb. 16-18 on the second floor of the convention center, this show will bring together some of the nations top craft artists, selling decorative and wearable art. Tickets are $20; www. palmbeachfinecraft.com. If those shows are the fanciest in the area, then the West Palm Beach Antiques Festivals February extravaganza easily is the largest. Set for Feb. 2-4 at the South Florida Fairgrounds, the show will draw several hundred dealers from across the country, who will fill the two main expo buildings, as well as outer buildings and the fields beyond. There should be a good mix of antiques and decorative items, as well as couture clothing, jewelry and other goodies. Information is at www.wpbaf.com. Now, get out there and shop!

The annual summer road trip to places less-traveled not only sought out adventure but also art. Evan and Ann Griffith, the owners of Studio E Gallery in PGA Commons, hauled home hand-blown glass, mosaics, sculptures and other abstract finds after a six-week trek that took them, their 14-year-old son, Zane, and his friend Wes to Sedro-Wooley, Wash. population 11,000 and Tres Piedras, N.M., nestled among three granite outcroppings. At Crater Lake National Park in Oregon, the van broke down at the top of Mount Mazama. It was late at night, we were 8,000 feet up, and TripleA said theyd be there in two to three hours, Mr. Griffith said. The ride down this twisting and turning mountain we were just grateful we couldnt see anything. It was pitch black. The Mobile Ops Family Adventure Vehicle, or MoFave, as he calls the van, recovered only to find more trouble in Scottsdale, Ariz., where it got stuck again, this time in 120-degree heat. They say dry heat is better, Mr. Griffith said. I don't believe it.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com FEBRUARY 2018 LUXE LIVING 5 care from whatever balms you have at hand. You lose hydration so quickly that heat stroke is a constant threat. Fun times. More adventure and art lie ahead in Aspen, Colo., via Independence Pass. Winding from Los Alamos in the early morning, which is very Grand Canyon-esque as you drive through the gorges, to Aspen via Independence Pass is possibly one of the top five day drives in the United States, Mr. Griffith said. You go from ancient southwestern canyons and deserts to precipitously steep and forested Colorado mountains. It's gobsmacking. It was quite a challenge in an oversize van, he said. There are constant warnings for large vehicles to turn back, Mr. Griffith said. But my God, the mountainscapes. Their final stop before heading through the heartland to Florida was Silverthorne, Colo., where work was acquired from painter Barrett Edwards. We love discovering artists, Mr. Griffith said. We want to be one of those galleries that helps artists step up their careers. They have succeeded. When Studio E Gallery opened in 1996, in Lake Worth, it represented two artists: Christine Peloquin and Paul Tamanian. Ms. Peloquin, of Eustis, draws and paints on fabric and paper adhered to wood. Subjects range from faces and figures of women to landscapes and nature scenes created from a collage of lace, napkins and tablecloths and pages from atlases, books and dictionaries. Mr. Tamanian, of Tallahassee, began in ceramics and now uses metals, painting them with dyes, glazes, sealants and other chemicals that produce brilliant colors and textures. We watched them grow, Ms. Griffith said. Theyre definitely highly collected in galleries now. Theres actually something kind of cool about that, Mr. Griffith added. Weve seen these artists go from bare bones and having nothing to having success. The mission of Studio E Gallery, which moved to Jupiter before landing in Palm Beach Gardens, is to support living artists. It represents 60 who create contemporary bronze, mixed-media and framed pieces. All are original. We love to see the artists hand, Ms. Griffith said. We dont go out and say our customers will buy this and this and this when we acquire art. Were like, We love it. It turns out our customers do, too. A self-taught artist whose interesting oils are among the gallerys top sellers, she said the pieces in the 2,600-squarefoot gallery are priced between $500 and $75,000 and are suitable for almost any location in the home. It goes everywhere, Ms. Griffith said. There are some people who love art so much that theres not a space left on their walls, and they still come in and want to buy more from us. Customers arrive from the Treasure Coast to the north, Broward County to the south and beyond. We get people from out-of-state, too, who find us online, Ms. Griffith said. Our customers just love artwork, and they love the creative aspect. I would consider them lifelong learners, Mr. Griffith said. You can tell that they appreciate that this is a real human who has made it and the backstory. The MoFave will head up the east coast this summer to Maine then Michigan and five other states so the family can lay claim to having visited all 50. This will complete that, Mr. Griffith said. Along the way, they will visit more art towns and the artists who inhabit them and bring back more inventory to expand the gallerys offerings. You have to experience it in person because its just different, said Ms. Griffith, who was mesmerized by Shelley Muzylowski Allens handblown glass in Sedro-Wooley, Wash. In person, it looks so lifelike, Mr. Griffith added. It can leave you agog.

6 LUXE LIVING FEBRUARY 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY ADVERTORIALWhy Shop at a Home Dcor Consignment Store?As owner of True Treasures I am asked this specific question very frequently. In my experience the answer can be summed up in three specific themes: FUN, VALUE, and the ELEMENT of SURPRISE Lets start with the third theme and work our way back to the first:Element of surpriseWe all like to be surprised and at Consignment Stores youll rarely, if not ever, see the same items again. We find the vast majority of our customers come for the Treasure Hunt. They come without a specific need; just to look at what is available. The willingness to take the time to shop can yield great satisfactionwhen you find something you totally love, and find unexpectedly. When was the last time you went to a new furniture store and found something truly unique? The emotional happiness derived when you surprise yourself by finding a one of a kind item is only one very important reason to shop for your home at a Consignment Store.ValueLets now take a practical approach to shopping for your home. We all want Value. We want to receive the most Value from the monies we spend and invest. Purchasing from a Consignment Store maximizes your dollars and lessens your investment. A vast majority of the items are not new and here is where the true value exists. While other items in your home are not new either; they obviously possess great value to you. The furniture, lighting and accessory items in a Consignment Store have the same value to its owner waiting to transfer that value to a new owner. There are literally some days, when I often think we are running an adoption agency for Home Dcor. Our consignors love their home furnishings and truly want to pass them on to others who can love them for the next x amount of years. The finest furniture manufacturers are available at Consignment Stores at 50%-80% off their original purchase prices. Now that truly spells VALUE! I always say if you find something you love you will have found a True Treasure at an unbelievable savings. FunI would be doing you, the reader a disservice if I didnt mention Mrs. Elena Johnson. She was the Matriarch of Home Dcor Consignment Stores in Palm Beach County. And yes, she was the former owner of True Treasures. Her credo was You will have fun shopping at True Treasures. Truth be told, you will have fun shopping at most Consignment Stores. The variety, uniqueness, and savings make it a far more fun experience than shopping a traditional Home Dcor store. It is inherently fun to find something you love at a price far below your expectations. So before you exclusively shop at a traditional retail store come to any of the Home Dcor Consignment Stores for a peek of what is available. I promise you will be SURPRISED; the VALUE of your purchases can be extraordinary and yes, in my opinion, most importantly you will have FUN. Please feel free to email me any comments or questions at: paul@truetreasuresinc.com. And I hope you visit all three of our stores and showrooms in North Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens and Delray Beach and say hello. If you find something you love, let us know you came in because you read this article. Well make it worth your while! Paul R. Shine, Owner SERVING PALM BEACH COUNTY FOR OVER 25 YEARS.

A recently completed, $37 million capital improvement project, which included a Sports Village and one of the countrys most innovative clubhouses, fostered a dramatic surge in member usage and membership sales. This past year, the relentless drive to keep their amenities among the finest in the country, the club brought back Jack Nicklaus to redesign and modernize The Legend Course, which he created in 1991. Ibis is the only club in the world featuring three, 18-hole championship courses designed by the Nicklaus family (Jack, Jack II and Steve). The Legend is a favorite of the club members, who enjoy playing on the same course that tested the pros as the site of The National Senior Club Professional Championship and the LPGAs Office Depot Tournament. Golfweek magazine had named The Legend one of the countrys Most Distinctive Courses. But the time had come for an update. Nicklaus and his team have now completed an extensive project that included renovation of all the greens, installing a new set of forward tees, the modernization of the irrigation system, and the creation of a new Legend practice green. With The Legend ready to play again, members will have all three Nicklaus courses in rotation. For those who would like to join in on the fun, new members (membership requires home ownership) have plenty of appealing residential options, from villas and condominiums to single-family homes and custom estates, priced from the $200s. The much-awarded gated community has 33 diverse neighborhoods, with architecturally beautiful homes, set in a lush, manicured setting. The property borders the Grassy Waters Nature Preserve, with quiet streets, ample green space, lakes and nature trails. 24-hour security from Ibis Public Safety provides peace of mind for the year round or seasonal residents. Members enjoy an active club lifestyle consisting of world-class sports, cultural programs, upscale amenities, and numerous social activities. The Clubhouse recently underwent a major enhancement and expansion to include banquet accommodations for up to 450. The new Sports Village includes innovative fitness facilities, an aquatics center, a 4,300-square-foot spa and a yoga wall. The 16-court Tennis Center holds friendly tournaments and weekly group play. Adult and junior tennis instruction is led by the former head of US mens tennis and Olympic coach, Jay Berger. On the greens and fairways, top golf instruction is headed by Martin Hall, ranked by Golf Digest as one of the games Top 50 instructors, and host of Golf Channels popular weekly show, School of Golf. Ibis is an equity club owned by the members, who are justifiably proud of their spectacular amenities, unsurpassed lifestyle, and well-earned reputation. The Club currently holds designations as an Emerald Club of Distinction, a Platinum Club of America, and in 2017 recorded the highest numeric score of any Club to date as Americas Healthiest Club.

10 LUXE LIVING FEBRUARY 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYJensen Beachs newest resort a shore bet for relaxing getaway BY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@ oridaweekly.comIt has taken nearly two decades for a new seaside resort to open in Jensen Beach. But, by all accounts, the Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa, which debuted in September, was worth the wait. On a site once home to a Holiday Inn, the 178-room Hutchinson Shores Resort has an oceanfront restaurant, two pools, a Jacuzzi, a signature spa, 8,000 square feet of state-of-the-art event space, and a magnificent beach location ideal for sun bathing, cooling off in the surf, and strolling barefoot along the shore. The new hotel is a far cry from the old Holiday Inn, which was destroyed by hurricanes Frances and Jeanne in 2004. The remains of the building sat vacant for almost 20 years. Police frequently found trespassers on the property and some locals believed the hotel was haunted. But thats the past. The future is much brighter. And, the only spirits to be found at Hutchinson Shores Resort can be found in the form of alcoholic beverages at the Drift Kitchen, with its stylish Lounge and Chefs Bar. Its a lovely contemporary setting to gather with friends to toast a day in paradise. Another good on-campus spot to belly up to the bar is Reflections Pool Bar, which is, as its name suggests, beside one of the two pools. When it comes time to dine, guests will want to make reservations at Drift Kitchen, which offers fresh seafood, cocktails and a carefully curated wine list. The restaurant, popular among locals and hotel guests, delivers postcard-pretty views of the Atlantic Ocean. As they enter the hotel, guests will find an architecturally gorgeous lobby with a grand, floating staircase and other elegant features, including a living green wall, a giant sand sculpture, and an artist-made chandelier with two huge sailfish (a nod to the areas rich fishing history) and dozens of small glass fish. Throughout the hotel, designers used a calming natural palette and driftwood accents with modern chromatic touches. Speaking of driftwood, guests will notice a gigantic driftwood reservation table, imported from Ireland, at Drift restaurant. Room designs are a blend of beachside retreat and nautical luxury, with bold navy and white striped drapes and bleached hardwood floors. To conserve energy, guests use a room card to turn on the lights and the AC goes off when sliding doors to the patio are open. Both pools and the Jacuzzi are equipped with hydraulic pool lifts so that people with disabilities have easy access. The property is so lovely that guests may not want to leave during their visit. But if they do, there are many options, including eco-adventures, museums, eclectic shopping and dining in downtown Stuart. History buffs wont want to miss Gilberts Bar and House of Refuge, one of the most photographed sites on Hutchinson Island. Built in 1876, it is Martin Countys oldest structure and one of 10 Houses of Refuge built along Floridas coast in the late 1800s. Docent tours are offered and recommended. THE LUXE GETAWAYPHOTOS BY MARY THURWACHTERThe 178-room Hutchinson Shores Resort opened along the shores of Jensen Beach in September. The light-filled lobby of the Hutchinson Shores has a seaside motif. Guest rooms combine the feel of a beachside retreat with nautical luxury. Jensen Beach provides opportunities for shelling. Guests of all ages can relax with poolside service at the resort. The Lounge and Chefs Bar at Hutchinson Shores Drift Kitchen offers a contemporary setting Stuart Preston gives a tour of the Gilberts Bar and House of Refuge, built in 1876 on Hutchinson Island. It is Martin Countys oldest existing structure. Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa is 55 minutes from Palm Beach International Airport. The resort, at 3793 NE Ocean Blvd. in Jensen Beach, is the newest addition to Ocean Properties Resort, Hotel and Af liates OPAL collection, an ensemble of premier luxury hotels and resorts.

FLORIDA WEEKLY LUXE LIVING 11 Luntz gallery show explores photographers architectural vision FLORIDA WEEKLY STAFFHolden Luntz Gallery is known for its focus on photography. The Worth Avenue spaces latest show focuses on "Constructed Space: The Architectural Visions of Four Photographers." For the works seen in this show, photographers Stephen Wilkes, Karen Knorr, Andre Lichtenberg and Massimo Listri have constructed or designed spaces to present their individual conceptions on various themes of human experience. These pictures underscore our relationship to the passing of time and to the heightened realities of a familiar space, according to the gallery. They often juxtapose nature with abstractions of space and the insertion of unexpected objects and can also set a stage to document the aging and deterioration of a structure. Stephen Wilkes' process of shooting from a fixed camera for up to 30 hours creates the heightened ability of seeing day and night in one image. Andre Lichtenberg's landscapes present abstracted cityscapes. The photographer gives careful consideration to the individual placement of each building. His images have a texture that feels almost palpable, the gallery says. Karen Knorr, inspired by Conceptual art and Magical Realism, presents the viewer with the illusion of animals inside elaborate and luxuriant interiors. Her work conjures the symbolism of parables and mythologies; anthropomorphic tales of morality and cultural significance that create a subtext as individual tales for each image. Massimo Listri is a Renaissance man whose trained eye for classical architecture and historical preservation reveals the grand harmonies and achievements of western architecture, but also intimately can display their wear and age. His work presents the interior architecture of libraries, palaces, villas, museums and castles, capturing the magnificence and energy of their designs. The show continues through Feb. 24 at Holden Luntz Gallery, 332 Worth Ave., Palm Beach. Info: 561 -805-9550 or www. holdenluntz.com.
