Ajmo DDS, DABOI, DICOI Joseph Russo DMD, AAACD roger BUCKWALTERSpecial to Florida Weekly COMMENTARYFifty years later, the legacy of looms largeThis is the 50th anniversary of a momentous year that still has an impact on us. It was 1968. With its soaring idealism and deadly violence, that portentous period surely was, in Charles Dickens words, the best of times (and) ... worst of times. Today we live with the aftermath good, bad and mixed of that year. Current conditions certainly have many causes and we shouldnt oversimplify. Yet with that caveat, what happened in 1968 has left a profound legacy that shapes our country. We are wary of wars without an exit strategy because in 1968 the Vietnam War reached its bloody peak after raging the entire decade, with no foreseeable end. We have corresponding doubts about Americas ability to mold international affairs because in 1968 our post-World War II optimism about U.S. power was shattered. We are more inured to violence in politics because in 1968, only five years after President Kennedy was killed, Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy were assassinated within a twomonth span, and near-tragedies have become familiar. We see Republicans heavily court the South because in 1968 Richard Nixons successful presidential campaign was helped by a Southern strategy that built on the Souths 1964 rejection of Democrats, after s epic civil rights legislation. We see a quest for populous, base zeal by presidential hopefuls because in 1968 the Democrats chose Hubert Humphrey, who never entered a primary, which ultimately prompted the number of combined primaries and caucuses in both parties to grow by 150%. We enjoy equal rights for more groups including women and LGBTs and greater environmental awareness because in 1968 a rising generation was motivated to spread liberalisms reach. We also confront a conservative backlash against liberal gains and so-called political correctness because in 1968 the progressive spirit sparked a transformation of education and other key institutions. We see more electoral efficacy for inflammatory prejudice because in 1968 Alabamas former governor, George Wallace, showed the way with his poison-filled, press-vilifying presidential campaign, which won five states. And we endure a seething estrangement from government, on the left and right, because the travails of 1968 eroded a former faith in public institutions and that cynicism was aggravated by the later Watergate scandal and demagogues such as Donald Trump. The significance of and its effects even now inevitably are related to King and Kennedy, what they were and might have been. Both leaders had clearly grown by that year. King augmented his drive for political and social civil rights by starting a Poor Peoples Campaign to help all races. Kennedy evolved into a powerful advocate for oppressed people everywhere and encouraged the white working class to ally with them. Our country could have benefited immensely if these icons had lived. They offered hope for progress on race, economic justice and national unity. The Vietnam War could have ended sooner, Watergate might have been avoided and public disaffection might have been tempered. And that could have eased many of the consequences that these troubles, sadly unaltered, subsequently inflicted. Is 2018 like 1968? As before, we face polarization, protests, vocal prejudices and rampant distrust of government. However, unlike theres no intense war and racial discrimination has decreased, which is better. A worse difference, though, is that todays president intentionally stokes racial, religious and ethnic discord. Hopefully, in the end, the memory of can make us wiser. Clearly, some of 1968s long-term impacts elevate us while some degrade us. And once again the relevance of history cries out as the repercussions of that year loudly reverberate.

OPINIONShe said, he saidThere are so many problems in making a charge of sexual misbehavior and even more starkly when it comes to accusations of domestic abuse. Not the least of this is when Person No. 1 (usually a woman) points the finger at Person No. 2 (usually a man). When the man denies the allegations, we often are left with uncertainty over which one to believe. Thats exactly what the administration faced with two key people on the presidents staff Rob Porter, the man who handled all the presidential paperwork and the most-classified material, along with speechwriter David Sorensen. Both were accused by various ex-wives of physical and emotional abuse; both adamantly reject the charges. We are left with the classic she said, he said situation. Unfortunately, its what their bosses, particularly chief of staff John Kelly and White House counsel Don McGahn, did NOT say that is the problem here. Each should have said, No way. Theres no way the men should have such critical roles until they dispose of matters so severe that they were denied fullfledged security clearances, as they nevertheless dealt with state secrets. The FBI made sure both Kelly and McGahn knew. But, for whatever reason, they decided to bring these guys onboard. Theyd still be there, except media reports suddenly blew up in their faces. Porter and then Sorensen quickly resigned. There wasnt even a whimper about fake news. There was, however, a discernible roar about the way Kelly, in particular, handled it. Even after the stories spread, he lauded Porter: Rob Porter is a man of true integrity and honor, and I cant say enough good things about him. He is a friend, a confidante and a trusted professional. I am proud to serve alongside him. The moment a picture was subsequently published showing one of the exes with a black eye, Kelly, the warhero-turned-Trump-tough-guy, went into full CYA mode. First, he expressed shock, then he tried to revise history by saying he had acted immediately. Why all the hesitation? Was it because such accusations arent taken seriously by Trump higher-ups? All POTUS complained about via Twitter was that, Peoples lives are being shattered and destroyed by mere allegation. ... Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process? What was noteworthy was what was missing from that tweet. There was no indication that he was the slightest bit concerned about what the women who made the claims might have endured. That is widely explained by Donald Trumps own past with dozens of sordid charges against him. Much of the glaring focus is on Kelly, the stern Marine general who was brought in to restore as much order as possible to the chaos. While he certainly has imposed routine where there was none, hes also revealed himself as a harsh right-winger. He called Robert E. Lee an honorable man and expressed the thought that the lack of an ability to compromise led to the Civil War. That begs the question: What kind of compromise over slavery would he have favored? But he is an equal-opportunity bigot, disparaging immigrants whenever he can. No wonder President Trump admires him. Obviously, this president is not a huge fan of the Me Too movement. Hed be more in the Him Too category. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. Yes, throw a paradeThe Pentagon has confirmed that it is in the preliminary stages of planning a military parade down Pennsylv ania Avenue one of President Donald Trumps fondest desires. Trump was, understandably, impressed in a visit to France last July by the pageantry of the Bastille Day parade. The parade dates back to the 1880s. Nothing the United States comes up with will match its resonance or its beloved, unifying nature. Trumps motivation for ordering up a parade anyway is pretty obvious. He likes big, brassy displays, and he gets a kick out of being the commander in chief of the most impressive military on the planet. Still, we dont lack for reasons to honor our military. The Pentagon has already floated the idea of a parade on Veterans Day to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I, an epic event by any standard. Were also overdue to honor on a large scale the sacrifice of our troops over the past 15 years in the war on terror. Its not obvious when it became untoward or dangerous for the United States to hold military parades. Are we supposed to believe that the integrity of American character has depended on having no military parades since 1991, when there were big honking ones in Washington and New York to celebrate the end of the Gulf War? The unsatisf actory outc omes of the Vietnam and Korean wars meant we didnt have parades to mark those conflicts (we should have). But it didnt occur to anyone that it was inappropriate or undemocratic to display military hardware. During World War II, there were big military parades in New York City, and self-propelled howitzers drove by the New York Public Library. Dwight Eisenhowers first inaugural showcased an 85-ton atomic cannon. They broke out four nuclear missiles for JFKs inauguration. Its true that leaders of Russia, China and North Korea exult in military parades. But its not military parades that make these regimes dangerous. The parade controversy is another sign that the place of patriotism in our national life, and what that patriotism should consist of, is a Trump-era flashpoint. Trumps critics tend to think patriotism itself is atavistic, or that its locus should be only in our ideals. Trumps patriotism is more grounded, and insists that we are a nation, not just an abstraction. This is why a military parade once in a while is a healthy thing: We should be proud, not just of our troops, but of our military as such. We should be proud of our strength. We should be proud of our weaponry, highly proficient machines fashioned by the most technically adept society the world has ever known. Ideally, everyone would realize this. Once upon a time, we did. But now the best argument against Trumps parade is that it will become a cultural-war flashpoint and the resistance will try its utmost to ruin the affair. Just imagine a protester in a pussy hat in a Tiananmen Square-style standoff with an M1 Abrams tank. Meanwhile, on July 14, the Bastille Day parade will in all likelihood come off once again without a hitch.

The 100-Day Challenge is spearheaded by Palm Healthcare Foundation. Over the past three years, Palm Beach County has become an epicenter in the state for the deadly opioid crisis. Opioid-related overdose deaths hit epidemic proportions in 2016 with 571 lives lost, a 110 percent increase from the previous year. The county recorded nearly 600 fatal overdoses in 2017, according to a report this month. The initiative defines clear and attainable goals designed to have an immediate impact on the crisis. The 100-Day Challenge team examined the current system and identified critical points in which an individual may fall through the gaps of service. They also strategized and set goals on ways to strengthen entry points into patient care for those battling addiction. The challenge initiatives include making scholarship beds and treatment will be made available to indigent people. Placing people in certified recovery residences, placing specialists will at four hospitals to work with people brought to the ER after an overdose and pairing recovery navigators with people leaving treatment centers to prevent relapse.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 22-28, 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.

JonSmithSubs.com PET TALESSit, dont jump BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationIf you have a new puppy, you are probably enjoying the enthusiastic kisses that come when your canine friend jumps up on you in greeting. Few things are as endearing as a puppy welcome when you come home from a long day at work. Its like getting a hug from someone you love which, of course, you are. But whats endearing in a puppy can become annoying or even dangerous when the pup has doubled or tripled in size. In some breeds, that growth can occur in a period of weeks. A dog who hasnt learned not to jump up on people can easily knock over an unsteady toddler or senior citizen, or make a mess of the expensive new outfit you just bought. Dogs who jump up on people are seeking attention, but not in a good way. Well, its not good for us when they snag our clothes or scratch our skin. But for dogs, jumping up for attention almost always works. Often, we respond with a laugh because it seems like cute behavior. Its all too easy to encourage jumping up from small puppies or dogs by scooping them up for love and kisses. Even if we scold, our dog has achieved her objective: attention from her favorite person. Instead of having to unteach this rambunctious behavior when your puppy is older and larger, begin on Day 1 by substituting a more acceptable greeting behavior. Show your puppy that sitting gets attention and rewards, while jumping up doesnt. Teaching sit is easy. Grab a handful of small, stinky treats. Hold one in front of your pups nose, and sl owly move your hand upward. His nose will follow, and his rear will naturally move into a sit position. Say yes, so he knows you like what he did, and give a treat or praise (Good sit!). Practice this for a couple of minutes several times a day, and gradually add the word sit so he has a name for the action. Once your puppy knows the cue sit, use it any time he is likely to jump up, such as greeting you when you come home, greeting other people at the door or watching you prepare his food (or yours). Ask him to sit while you put on his leash for a walk or at the corner before you cross the street. Sit is a good cue to practice anywhere in different rooms of your home, at the veterinary clinic, at an outdoor table at your local coffee shop or any time a person is approaching. As you teach your puppy to sit for attention, turn your back on any attempts to jump up. Literally. Dont yell no dont say anything and dont look at him. Removing your attention, including verbal communication and eye contact, sends the message that theres no reward for jumping up. Give attention, praise and rewards only when he has all four paws on the ground. Teach friends and family members to use this technique as well. Everyone should know how to respond so that they dont inadvertently reinforce unwanted behavior. If strangers seem willing to let your dog jump on them, explain that youre training him, and youd appreciate their help. When you can get everyone to cooperate, your dog will learn quickly to offer a sit for attention. All puppies need to learn self-control, and teaching them to sit instead of jumping up helps provide this training. Even better, everyone who meets your dog will be impressed by a puppy who greets them in a polite sit. Pets of the Week>> Mila is a 2-year-old female mixed-breed dog that weighs 38 pounds.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 22-28, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY Diabetes and Chinese MedicineQuestion: Can Acupuncture help me manage my diabetes? Answer: Absolutely! The likelihood is high that you or someone you know has been affected by diabetes. It is an increasingly common condition affecting 1.5 million in the U.S each year. Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine offer a way to address each patient individually to potentially eliminate the symptoms associated with diabetes and reduce the progression of disease. The body gets energy from the food we consume through digestion. The food is then broken down into glucose, which passes through the bloodstream and from there gets delivered to different areas of the body by the hormone insulin. With diabetes, your body either doesnt produce enough insulin or doesnt respond to it properly, leading to uncontrolled bloodsugar levels that cause potentially serious complications. Through acupuncture, herbal medicine, lifestyle and dietary adjustments your Acupuncture Physician can address the underlying cause of the condition. The focus being to bring balance to your organ systems to improve pancreatic function and control blood sugar levels, while at the same time addressing the many other symptoms often associated with diabetes.

Thanks to the evolution of computer technology and imaging, treatment strategies are available today that were simply unimaginable 10 years ago. At Jupiter Medical Center, where I am a radiation oncologist, we combine cuttingedge technology with a multidisciplinary approach to patient treatment to deliver the highest quality care and best possible outcomes. One primary aspect that sets Jupiter Medical Center apart is our collaborative approach to patient care. We utilize a multidisciplinary strategy to manage our patients care from diagnosis all the way through treatment, recovery and survivorship care. What this means is that we convene doctors from a range of practice specialties in conferences where we consult on each diagnosis and come up with a course of treatment. For all patients, but particularly ones with complicated cases, working collaboratively allows us to come together in real time to discuss the patient, tap into the expertise of each doctor in the room and get a complete understanding of what the patient is facing. Based on this collaboration and discussion, we are then able to devise the best possible treatment plan. Once a diagnosis is established, we bring together a team to execute a customized treatment plan to meet the specific needs of each patient. Each level of care from radiation therapy to diet and nutrition is managed through a patient navigator whose primary responsibility is to coordinate all aspects of patient care and make it as seamless as possible. This approach allows us to provide the best treatment options, including clinical trials and the latest therapies, with the goal of improving outcomes and offering superlative care. Our approach to patient care is just one part of the treatment equation here at Jupiter Medical Center. The other key component is our focus on innovation. Our medical center is home to some of the worlds most advanced cancer treatment technologies. For the treatment of breast cancer, we offer certain patients electron beam intraoperative radiation therapy (e-IORT) during which they receive a single dose of radiation at the time of their lumpectomy. In the best of cases, this single dose of radiation will be all a patient requires. This technology reduces radiation exposure and treatment time allowing patients to return to their normal activities much sooner and it has also proven to be highly effective. Several years ago, Jupiter Medical Center invested in the revolutionary CyberKnife robotic radiosurgery system in order to offer patients the most innovative treatment options available. Today, we treat patients with the latest generation of the Cyberknife system, known as the M6, which is the most advanced robotic radiosurgery system in the world. This machine, despite its name, does not involve making an incision. Instead, it enables doctors to dispense very precise radiation through the skin to treat tumors, including those found in the lungs, liver, prostate and brain. It also enables us to provide a highly individualized treatment, selecting from thousands of different angles from which to deliver radiation treatments. The benefits of the CyberKnife are significant, as it allows patients, who would otherwise need highly invasive surgery, to receive a short cycle of noninvasive and pain-free radiation and avoid surgery. In addition, the CyberKnife system can deliver treatment to moving tumors with pinpoint accuracy, sparing surrounding healthy tissue and critical organs from damage a key benefit to the health of the patient. CyberKnife and e-IORT are just two examples of the portfolio of cutting-edge technology we have available at Jupiter Medical Center. These leading-edge treatments and services, combined with the multidisciplinary approach of highly trained and experienced physicians, nurses and allied health professionals, give us a unique advantage in the fight against cancer.

Surfside and about 1,500 other medical practices nationwide using Allscripts a publically traded, Chicago-based outfit that listed $1.55 billion in 2016 revenue suddenly found themselves unable to function. They couldnt schedule, they couldnt bill and they couldnt manage records, according to news reports and complaints voiced from those very frustrated companies on Twitter. Like malware software that simply means malicious Ransomware is aptly named: The bad guys hack company records and encrypt them, promising to free up the data if a ransom is paid. Historically they may or may not keep that promise. They can do it with the personal records of individuals, as well, including such records as family photo albums archived in the cloud. This isnt from simple modifications; they can use the same encryptions as banks, so even with the most powerful tools in the world, we cant break them, said Patrick Traynor, an associate professor in the Department of Computerand-Information-Science and Engineering at the University of Florida, and co-director of the Florida Institute for Cybersecurity Research. Once they have you, they have you. So when you get attacked, youre forced to go to their dark webpage. The (people or locations) will be hard or impossible to physically locate. So you have to make a payment, usually in Bitcoin. There are other cyber currencies as well. Sometimes people refuse to pay the ransom. One of the issues is whether or not you pay, he said. I had a friend whose company was hit. They decided not to pay ransom. But the entire cost of getting their systems back up and running was close to $1 million dollars. They had to wipe the machines, buy new equipment, and hire professionals. They were a small business that overnight had a million in added expenses. Such attacks often harvest data then sold on the darknet on a network of websites that can only be reached with special browsers such as Tor, an acronym for The onion router, the most common. The most egregious example of a breach took place at the end of July last year, when criminals hacked the system at one of the three major credit reporting agencies, Equifax Inc., and stole the personal data of 145.5 million U.S. consumers. The ultimate consequences of that event continue to unfold, and remain unknown. Anybody who has ever been part of a hack probably has personal information about them for sale on the darknet, said Professor Traynor. Deep net, darknet and clear netThe darknet itself, often called the dark web to describe protected websites that preserve anonymity, is a fledgling and very small corner of the much larger deep web. As a term, deep web describes the vast body of information data not indexed to be accessible to standard search engines or crawlers, such as Chrome or Bing or Safari or Microsoft Edge. The deep web is mostly benign, consisting of records or information individuals or companies use in the course of living and working, a great deal of it old. Media outlets, for example, have to design information presented in a quickly comprehensible and even attractive form before they release it to readers or viewers. To do that they may work on pages rough drafts, if you will stored privately and password accessible, but not kept in the public domain. Old applications for smart phones, old Dropbox accounts, old social media profiles, scholarly journals, court records and the like are all part of the huge deep web. The deep web, therefore, grows exponentially every day, the experts say, consisting of about 96 percent of the information in the world. The surface or clear web, meanwhile only about 4 percent of what exists on the worldwide web is information accessible to the public, the data most people see every day on cell phones or computers using common search engines. The clear net is filled with news, social media, markets and marketing, how-to information, blogs and opinions. Theres music, history, literature, explanatory science. Calendars, schedules, maps and so on. Go to www.FloridaWeekly.com, search the archive, and you can read all of the copy written in more than a decade of work in the Sunshine State, in 52 editions each year more than that, considering the paper publishes in different regions, often producing different stories for those regions. Its seemingly voluminous but only a slender fraction of a tiny portion of available information. The deep web represents a large component of information out there, most of it from organizations like universities, governments, news outlets youre putting a lot of electronic content out there but not subjecting it to traditional browsers. So you wont be searched and indexed by Google, explained Robert Totterdale, an associate professor of computer information systems at Florida Gulf Coast University. You set up your sites that way many are password driven. Theres no need or interest or want in making that visible.The darknet itselfThe darknet, indeterminate in size but considered a very small percentage of the deep net, is traditionally viewed as a haven for criminal activity. Illegal pornography, drug sales, weapons sales, stolen credit card sales, other personal or business data up for sale, human trafficking, terrorist communications all these are part of the now decade or so old history of the dark web. The reason is anonymity. To access sites on the dark web, users download encrypted technologies, available for free on the clear web. Those allow them to reach websites by routing connections randomly through servers around the world. Communications are encrypted at the origin and decrypted at the destination, in theory, with neither sender nor receiver nor anybody else able to identify people involved in the communication. Tor is the most common encryption browser, but there are others with various strengths or weaknesses. You have I2P and FreeNet, but Tor is the 800-pound gorilla, said Professor Totterdale. The thing you dont have on Tor is the domain names system, a kind of big directory to help people get to where theyre going on the web. Instead, you have to know where youre going or follow instructions to get there. For navigation of the darknet, certain sites publish their addresses, and often dark web sites end in .onion, rather than dot-com, dot-net or something else. So people who have downloaded Tor, for example (and often added other technologies to add to their protections), can follow the site directions and reach it. These are not necessarily criminals. You also have government and law enforcement they hang out there, Professor Totterdale added. And they dont like to talk about it. Florida Weeklys written and telephone requests for information about online and dark web law enforcement to sheriffs offices in Palm Beach, Lee, Charlotte and Collier counties were mostly ignored by police. A Collier County Sheriffs Department response offered little information: While we monitor and investigate crimes that are internet based, each investigation is different. We look for evidence that will assist in solving a crime. We monitor certain sites where potential crimes occur and at times begin investigations from the information we gather. Private users of the darknet sometimes dont like to talk about it either. Thank you for reaching out to me. I am a knowledgeable person, which actually gets me into a lot of trouble. I need to decline this offer, one responded, when asked to discuss how he used the darknet. Even IT security companies in Palm Beach County and Orlando declined to discuss their operations. In its effective use, any electronic or physical trail is made obscure and the source as well as the searcher remains anonymous. Unless they make a mistake. The most famous case, which brought the darknet fully into public consciousness, says Professor Totterdale, was the WEBFrom page 1 Tips for online security>> Professors and cybersecurity experts Sameer Hinduja, of Florida Atlantic University; Robert Totterdale of Florida Gulf Coast University; and Patrick Traynor, the University of Florida, all recommend the same basic security measures for individuals and companies. Here they are: >> 1. Do not explore questionable or sensitive websites with a browser used for everyday operation. For sensitive operations, use a different browser. >> 2. Do not open unknown links or attachments that arrive by email. If necessary, contact the sender another way, and inquire about the email. >> 3. Back up all critical les. For added security and enhanced recovery time, install an early warning system that may allow you to react quickly and save yourself signi cant nancial or emotional suffering, and also save you a great deal of time recovering, if you are hacked. Professor Traynors company, CryptoDrop, offers such a tool. >> 4. Use an effective password. As simple as it sounds, this is one of the biggest weaknesses in personal or company security the use of poor passwords. In 2016, a company called Keeper Security looked at 10 million passwords, listing the most common that had been used in data breaches that year. Number one, comprising 17 percent of the total or about 1.7 million, was . The word password was the eighth most common. Others in the top 10 included adding a 7, an 8 or a 9 (or all three) to the above string of numbers; using ; or qwerty (coming in at number ve). Be smart about passwords.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 22-28, 2018 NEWS A11Silk Road, as people called it. Created in 2011 by Ross Ulbricht, who called himself the Dread Pirate Roberts after a character in the movie, The Princess Bride, the Silk Road established a marketplace without government or legal oversight, primarily where illegal narcotics were sold. It was named for the trade route that connected the East and the West across parts of Asia for about 1,200 years, ending in the 15th century. But in the contemporary form, it was short lived. Mr. Ulbrecht was arrested by the FBI in San Francisco in 2013 and charged with money laundering, computer hacking, conspiracy to traffic narcotics and planning the murders of six people. The murder charges ultimately didnt stick, but the others did. Now hes serving life in prison without possibility of parole. The FBI didnt fundamentally break the system to figure out who was running it, but the person running it logged into another website and accidentally de-anonymized himself, so the FBI was able to track and capture him, Professor Traynor said. Other configurations of such marketplaces, however, sprang up immediately following the demise of the Silk Road. They continue to operate in the same fashion.How the darknet serves the goodBoth in the United States and in other parts of the world, the darknet often becomes a tool for the good. The entire dark web is not nefarious there may be whistleblowers reporting white-collar crime, and the dark web may allow for the free exchange of ideas and information in repressed countries under repressive regimes. So, dont paint it only as a hellacious network filled with devious people, said Sameer Hinduja, co-director of the Cyber Bullying Research Center at cybullying.org, and professor of criminology at Florida Atlantic University. In open societies such as the United States, government officials sometimes try to restrict information that becomes public to the detriment of citizens and society, in the eyes of whistleblowers who act in good conscience. Some of them seek to preserve their careers and lives by remaining anonymous, not always easy to do. Although this has always been the case, the dark net now can help protect them, which is why media outlets have begun encouraging people to come forward anonymously, explained Al Tompkins, a senior faculty member at the Poynter Institute for Media Studies in St. Petersburg, which owns the Tampa Bay Times. Newspapers and investigative outlets such as The Washington Post or ProPublica maintain dark web sites just to protect whistleblowers, on whom the public has grown increasingly reliant for real information about government officials and organizations. This existed during the Obama administration, but (investigative reporters) have really amped up their efforts, particularly in the days after the 2016 election, making it easier to leak encrypted information, Mr. Tompkins said. Truthfully, they should have been doing this all along. It wasnt that the Obama administration was so open with records; they werent. But we went from an administration that had closed things down quite a bit, to one that closes them down even more. So ever since WikiLeaks came into being an organization founded more than a decade ago by Julian Assange to release sensitive information from governments to people journalists have encouraged people to share information with them in the safest possible ways. Theyve been pretty successful, said Mr. Tompkins. Papers like The New York Times have a lot of information coming in. The problem is determining what is true, but a fair amount of it ends up checked, verified and newsworthy, he noted. Is this a good thing the use of the darknet to expose government actions to the sunshine? Good and necessary are two different things, Mr. Tompkins said. Government is so inaccessible now, and theres nothing good in that. And confidential and inside sources have always been a part of journalism. Whats the alternative; just to get nothing? Well, no. One website, tellontrump. com, represents the special projects desk of GIZMODO MEDIA GROUP, a variety of online investigative journals that report on political, financial, cultural and technological power for readers. At tellontrump.com they offer a Secure Drop for messages, tips, files, images, videos or documents designed to protect your anonymity, frustrating attempts by anyone, including us, to identify you as the source. A whistleblower simply clicks on the link for instructions and follows them. They also offer a physical mailing address in New York, an email address that offers a public key for those using encryption, and a telephone number capable of receiving calls and messages on a number of different platforms, including IMESSAGE, Signal, WhatsApp, Line and Allo. Finally, they offer additional precautions a communicator may take to remain more confident about anonymity. For any dark web use, however, security is never an absolute certainty. Completely secure is a very strong term we usually try to avoid saying the term, said Professor Traynor. Its publicly thought that these things are secure. However, there could be (unseen or unexpected) operator mistakes or vulnerabilities that could lead to exposure.How to protect yourselfIts a tricky world, the world of darknet maneuvers. Organizations that track cybercrime in the health services industry the kind suffered in the attack on Allscripts Healthcare Systems reported malware and ransomware attacks on such organizations roughly doubled in 2017, from 30 to 64, along with 58 breaches of theft. Sometimes it takes companies the better part of a year to realize whats happened. And when it happens, typically, a message pops up on your screen that says all your files have been encrypted, and it gives you instructions, Professor Traynor explained. One of them is usually to download the Tor browser. Then you navigate to the website they tell you. Then they will give you a bitcoin wallet, and you have to make a payment in bitcoins or some similar currency. To do that, you have to go to a bitcoin exchange, purchase the bitcoin with traditional dollars, then transfer the bitcoin to the criminals. They can change the bitcoin back for cash. Its very difficult to catch them. Crypto-currencies are decentralized and hard to shut down. Working outside the university, Professor Traynor founded a company he calls CryptoDrop, at www.WeStopRansomware.com. Its a Florida-based startup that came What is the deep web? A small percentage of what we call the internet is visible to the general public. Hidden below the surface is a secretive network known as the deep web. It is unindexed by search engines and only accessible with special web browsers.SURFACE WEB DEEP WEB The Visible Web can be found using search engines like Google and Bing, and is under constant surveillance by the government. The Invisible Web cannot be indexed by search engines and is dif cult to monitor. The deep web is 500 times the size of the Surface Web. 4% of internet content 96% of internet contentHow to access the deep webThe simple answer is yes. People are beginning to use TOR and other dedicated browsers to maintain their privacy while online. Some examples of deep web users include:MILITARY POLICE JOURNALISTSWHISTLEBLOWERS DRUGS CHILD PORNOGRAPHY WEAPONS TRADING HTTP When using the surface web data is accessed directly from the source. Accessing the deep web requires a dedicated browser. There are several options but the most popular browser is TOR (The Onion Router). Data on the deep web cannot be accessed directly because it is not held on any single page. Instead, the data is stored in databases, making it dif cult for search engines to index. Files are shared through any number of computers connected to the internet that hold the information youre after. This type of sharing is called peer-to-peer networking. The encrypted data makes it dif cult to track the information you shared and your location.Is it legal to access the deep web? This direct approach tracks information downloaded, and the time and location it was accessed from. Examples: Edward Snowden and Julian AssangeDue to the privacy and anonymity dedicated servers such as TOR offer, the deep web has also become a popular place for criminal activity.

In 2016, the company reported $3.144 billion in revenue. But last September, Equifax announced criminals had hacked its systems and stolen or compromised the personal data of 145.5 million consumers, which likely means their personal information was put up for sale on the darknet, part of the dark web, experts say. A small portion of the worldwide web, the so-called darknet consists of websites where anonymous vendors often sell products including drugs, humans and personal data to anonymous buyers, using encrypted data. For many people who hadnt thought about the deep web or darknet before, suddenly it became relevant to their lives. You may have heard the saying, says Patrick Traynor an associate professor and co-director of the Florida Institute for Cybersecurity at the University of Florida. There are two kinds of people: Those who have been hacked, and those who dont know theyve been hacked. The criminals stole the names, Social Security numbers, birthdates, and addresses of everyone; they also captured the drivers license and credit card numbers of some, the company said. Months have dragged by, hundreds of lawsuits against Equifax alleging poor security have been filed, according to news reports, and its not over. Early this month, the company admitted that tax identification numbers, email addresses and phone numbers, as well as the expiration dates for credit cards were part of the hack, facts it shared with Senate leaders rather than the public, at first. The office of U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren released the latest information to the press, according to news reports. Equifax, one of the three major credit bureaus with Experian and TransUnion, was not immediately forthright with consumers after the breach, waiting more than five weeks to tell them. Executives knew of it on July 29 last year but told no one until Sept. 7. Later, the company fired the CFO, John Gamble, and spent huge sums to investigate and try to rectify the hack. It also offered consumers a service that allows them to lock and unlock their credit reports a service many have found either difficult to use, or unusable, theyve said. Equifax offered all U.S. consumers no-charge identity theft protection and credit report monitoring for a year, but that deal expired Jan. 31. Options for consumers concerned about misuse of their personal data now include getting a free copy of a credit report, and freezing or locking reports. According to Equifax, a free copy of your credit report from the three major credit bureaus is available at www. annualcreditreport.com. To freeze your credit report, contact the three major credit bureaus online. Go to www.equifaxsecurity2017. com for more information. The website leads to a trademarked site called Lock and Alert which says, Youre in charge, and Its about you. It offers this explanation, as well: Why lock? Locking your Equifax credit report is an effective way to help provide additional protection against unauthorized access, and help stop identity thieves from opening new accounts in your name. Equifax breach: the unfortunate education of American consumersBY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweekly.com out of research here at the University of Florida, he said. For protection, everybody with a computer should recognize his or her vulnerability, to start with, according to the experts. All pieces of hardware run software, millions of lines of code, and sometimes there are vulnerabilities or deficiencies which allow exploitation someone taking advantage, being able to gain access or insert malicious code, or run program or script to wreak havoc, said Professor Hinduja. Some (criminals) might use a device to orchestrate an attack against other computers. All of this will exist in the future. Since everyone is now connected, everywhere, traditional borders are useless in protecting individuals or companies. But good habits and basic knowledge are not useless. Professor Traynor recommended three basic steps. One: Be careful about what you do on your computer. I use one browser for browsing and a different browser for sensitive operations. So if Im compromised on one, Im not on another. The second step is to be very careful about links or attachments coming in by email. Especially ones that seem urgent. If theres really a problem at your bank, for example, go to the banks website itself and log in. The problem will be made apparent. You dont have to open any emails. The third step is more work, but just as essential, he warned. You have to try and back up critical files, and have an early warning system like the one CryptoDrop provides to protect you not just from financial or emotional loss say, your kids and grandkids photos but to reduce the time it takes to get these things back. It can happen to anybody, the experts say, and it can happen more than once. I believe in the transformative power of technology and the internet, Professor Traynor said. Innovative solutions can be delivered across the planet, they can help create a stable and productive middle class across the world which will reduce the number of cyber attacks, or the urge to commit them, he insists. But it will always be true: Security has to be part of that. Because it is also true that the darknet or some form of it will always exist.

A14 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 22-28, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYBASEBALLFrom page 1fun for fans. The sterling-silver stanchion stands two feet tall, weighs 30 pounds and is crafted by Tiffany & Co., featuring the flags of all 30 Major League Baseball teams. It will remain on display Feb. 24, when the Astros take on the Atlanta Braves. Also that day, baseball lovers can bring their four-legged friends to the game for a $5 donation to the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. Doggy bags and water bowls will be provided. Signature Sunday on Feb. 25 will have a Nationals player in the concourse signing autographs. On Feb. 26, The Astros play the New York Mets, and the Nationals meet the Miami Marlins on Feb. 27. Then the Minnesota Twins come to town. Six games in February is a first-time event, Mr. Ballard said. Typically, spring training is in March. Pitchers and catchers reported for duty in the middle of the month, but there have been guys down for awhile now, he said. An estimated 140,000 attendees are expected to celebrate Americas pastime and check out key players such as Jos Altuve, the Astros second baseman and the American Leagues reining MVP, and Max Scherzer, a pitcher for the Nationals who has won three Cy Young awards. The Boston Red Sox game March 1 will be the seasons biggest draw, Mr. Ballard said. The Tigers always have a nice following, as well, he added, referring to the March 4 visit by Detroit. Ticket sales are going well. When you have a World Series champion and a division winner, that always helps, Mr. Ballard said. But like baseball or not, its a great social setting. Craft Corner is a hotspot that faces leftfield and offers great views of the action, as well as a full-service bar specializing in microbrews. For those who enjoy an icy adult beverage, its the place to be, Mr. Ballard said. Fans favoring an upgraded experience can rent a party deck or a suite. The party decks are almost sold out, and the suites are doing well, Mr. Ballard said. The Banana Boat Lawn is another way to watch the game from the outfield and on the cheap. Families can carry on the tradition of throwing down a towel or a blanket and just hanging out, Mr. Ballard said. The FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches bullpen areas have nearly unobstructed vantage points that enable fans to observe the closers warming up. Nobody can get too close to a 95-mileper-hour fastball, but when you hear the pop and the sizzle, its pretty cool, Mr. Ballard said. Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium, home to the Miami Marlins and the Saint Louis Cardinals, changed its name, too. Formerly Roger Dean Stadium, it was rebranded with the signing of a 10-year agreement by Patty Dean, owner of the local car dealership. They have naming rights now through 2027, general manager Mike Bauer said. We are so fortunate to have them as a partner. Fans to the 7,000-seat stadium not only will catch glimpses of its new logo but also will benefit from upgrades to its physical elements. The field was entirely re-sodded with Celebration Bermudagrass, the shade awnings above the stands were redesigned, and the suites were rebuilt. In three years, we will embark on a major renovation, Mr. Bauer said. After the 2020 season, we will start. For now, the fixes will provide visual appeal for this seasons 160,000 anticipated patrons. The New York Yankees game against the Marlins on March 11 is sold out, and the Baltimore Orioles game against the Cardinals is proving to be a popular draw. The Red Sox play two games in Jupiter, adding to the demand for tickets. Having the Yankees, the Red Sox and the Orioles three teams we did not have last year is a plus, Mr. Bauer said. Those fans are here to see baseball. 10 9 8 7 6 3 2 1 12 13 14 15 16 Fort Myers Fort Myers West Palm Beach Orlando Orlando Tampa Miami Miami 9 8 4 3 1 12 13 14 15 TEAM CITYAtlanta Braves North Port Baltimore Orioles Sarasota Boston Red Sox Fort Myers Detroit Tigers Lakeland Houston Astros West Palm Beach Miami Marlins Jupiter Minnesota Twins Fort Myers New York Mets Port St. Lucie New York Yankees Tampa Philadelphia Phillies Clearwater Pittsburgh Pirates Bradenton St. Louis Cardinals Jupiter Tampa Bay Rays Port Charlotte Toronto Blue Jays DunedinSpring Training then and nowGrapefruit League 2019Note: The Braves plan to move by spring 2019.T1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 TEAM CITYChicago White Sox Sarasota Cincinnati Reds Tampa Los Angeles Dodgers Vero Beach Oakland As Bradenton Texas Rangers Pompano Beach Atlanta Braves West Palm Beach Baltimore Orioles Miami Boston Red Sox Winter Haven Detroit Tigers Lakeland Houston Astros Cocoa Minnesota Twins Orlando New York Mets St. Petersburg New York Yankees Fort Lauderdale Philadelphia Phillies Clearwater Pittsburgh Pirates Fort Myers St. Louis Cardinals St. PetersburgT1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 Spring TrainingGrapefruit League 1968Note: 1968 was the nal year the Pirates trained in Fort Myers.

BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF FEBRUARY 22-28, 2018 | A17WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM MONEY & INVESTINGBonds used to be the safe investment its riskier nowBananas grow on trees. Viking warriors had horns on their head. Fingernails keep growing after death. Drinking alcohol kills brain cells. All of these facts are, in actuality, not true. In finance, the one fact that is not true but comes up time and time again is that stocks are risky and bonds are safe. This adage affects millions of investors, many of them without their knowledge. So how did this fallacy come to be believed by so many and how is it potentially affecting you?In theory, bonds should be less risky than stocks. First, bondholders have a higher claim on assets of the company or issuer should anything bad happen to it. Similarly, interest payments on bonds always get priority over dividends or any payments to equity holders. And a company can cut dividends for any reason or not pay them at all. The company or issuer is legally obligated to pay bond interest once bonds are issued. Finally, many bond holders like the government or government agencies have much better credit ratings compared to corporate stock issuers. Because of these characteristics, bonds are often marketed as the safer investment in a number of ways. One common example is the structure of age-based funds. In these widely held investments, you pick a fund based on your age. The fund invests more of its assets in stocks the younger you are and then moves towards bonds once you approach retirement. The thought is that you should be invested in higher return/higher risk assets at an early age and lower risk/lower return assets at a more advanced age. Or, some funds and ETFs are sold as low risk or defensive because they put more of their capital in bonds. But one major macro risk that I think many investors underestimate is interest-rate risk. Almost all bonds, whether they be corporate, municipal or government, are priced by taking a risk-free rate (typically the U.S. Treasury bond rate) and then adding a risk premium to it. Therefore, even if you own a bond issued by Apple or a local sewer authority, any movement of overall interest rates will affect the price of your bond. And over the past few decades, this has not been an issue as interest rates have been in an overall decline since the 1980s. So, interest rate movements have only helped returns on bonds. Remember that lower rates equal higher prices and higher rates equal lower prices with regard to bonds. But during the past several months, we have seen a reversal of this trend. Overall interest rates have started to rise, mostly due to inflation fears and the assumption that the Federal Reserve will push rates higher. And safe bond investments have been punished severely. Since July of last year, an investor in the S&P 500 would have had a return of about 11 percent, even after this recent correction. An investor in long-dated low risk Treasury bonds would have lost around 10 percent of his investment during this same period. Even holding a basket of corporate bonds during this period would have lost you about 5 percent of your investment. And unfortunately for bondholders, the worst pain may be ahead of us. This negative return for bondholders happened when the 10-year Treasury rate increased less than one percentage point from around 2 percent to 2.9 percent. Because of increasing inflation figures and higher budget deficits, many analysts now believe that the Fed will have to raise rates more aggressively than most people now believe. Some are calling for the 10-year Treasury to move towards its historical averages of 5 percent to 6 percent in the next decade. This will result in dramatic negative returns for bondholders. Therefore, I would advise looking at the funds and investments you have in your portfolio today and deciding whether maybe your portfolio is too safe for your own good. Eric Bretan, the co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda, was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com New business needs land before it can help startups The search is on for land and entrepreneurs with a track record to work with The Bricks, a new business making its home in Palm Beach County. The Bricks is an early stage investor and incubator and is on the hunt for rental property. It is looking for up to 10,000 square feet of raw, open space. Alongside this search, The Bricks wants to invest regularly in entrepreneurs with veterans among its mix of founders, managers or beneficiaries.

A20 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE WEEK OF FEBRUARY 22-28, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY earlSTEWARTearls@estoyota.com EARL ON CARS Getting the best price from the car dealerBuying a car involves deciding among a mind-boggling combination of choices: make, model, trim level, options, accessories, et cetera. Almost every one of these choices affects the cost of the vehicle. Throw in the vast array of manufacturer rebates and lease and finance incentives and you have a very confusing landscape to navigate. This makes simply knowing the cost of any particular car very difficult. Almost all car salespeople and sales managers are paid a percent of the profit on the cars they sell. The average percent paid to the salesperson is 30 percent; he makes $60 on a $200 profit and he makes $1,200 on a $4,000 profit. The profit per car for the average car salesperson in a month varies greatly and can range from as low as $100 (or less) to as much as $10,000 (or more) even on the identical car! A car salespersons success depends on how high a price he can sell you the car, so each deal is different and depends on the dynamic between the salesperson and the customer. All of this is because of the antiquated system of selling cars, a system that was derived from 19th-century horse-trading. Back in the day, horse-buyers were far better at negotiating a price fair than car-buyers today. Most people couldnt afford a horse, and those who could were far better prepared and equipped to negotiate. These days, some carbuyers are very shrewd, savvy negotiators and can hold their own with any car salesman. However, many car buyers are not as well prepared. Young, first time car-buyers might not be so shrewd. Buyers whose first language isnt English can have problems. The elderly, especially widows, are often victimized by car salesmen. The shrewd negotiator can actually buy the exact same car from the same dealer and salesman on the same day for thousands less than the elderly widow. One of the most important things you can do to prevent paying a much larger profit for the same car than the next customer is to compare prices with different dealers for the EXACT SAME YEAR-MAKE-MODEL with the exact same accessories and exact same MSRP. Remember to use the MSRP, the manufacturers suggested retail price and not the dealers price often displayed next to the MSRP sticker. It can be difficult to get a firm price from a car dealer, but Ive found a method from my hundreds of mystery shopping reports that works every time. Tell the dealer that you are financing through your credit union or bank, and they require an official signed buyers order from the dealership before they will give you the check made out to the dealer. Take that buyers order to at least two other car dealers of the same make and ask them to beat that bottom line price. You can also compare that price to the TrueCar price at www. TrueCar.com and the Costco Auto Buying program at www.CostcoAuto.com. One word of warning is DO NOT VARY FROM THE EXACT CAR YOU SELECTED when you compare prices. Each car dealer you visit will do and say anything to persuade you to choose a different car. The dealer knows his hands are tied and he must cut his profits if he gives you his best price on the car youve selected. He may tell you another car is better, cheaper, or that the car you selected is not available. Persist and get at least three prices on the car you decide on. BEHIND THE WHEELThe Chevrolet they pay you to driveThis week is a different kind of road test. Where most of the cars and trucks we review are just a down payment away from your driveway, heres one that requires training before they hire you to drive it. Police vehicles have an allure to some enthusiasts, because these are the hardcore family vehicles. Cars and SUVs plucked from the assembly line and given different suspension and electrical components to handle the demands of being able to keep up with the outlaws. While thats the idealistic side of the cop car, these vehicles are also coming out of fleet sales. It often means creature comforts are deleted for the sake of durability and the lowest possible cost. But the new 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban Police Pursuit Vehicles are looking to take the law enforcement out of the bargain basement. Gone are the days of the vinyl seating that is shared with the offender riding in the back. In fact, Ford and Dodge police vehicles have also figured out how to make heavy-duty materials that dont look and feel like they belong in a school bus. But what makes the Tahoe and Suburban stand out this year are the other accommodations. They both now come standard with features like dual zone automatic climate control, full color driver information center, and the eight-inch touchscreen interface with Bluetooth and backup camera. That might not seem like much, but the difference makes this look and feel like the same $49-$70K SUVs that can be purchased at the local Chevy dealer. And when showing prospective rookies that their patrol vehicle feels like something they aspire to own in civilian life, that can be a powerful recruitment tool. Offering a nicer place to work is fine, but the real necessity is that these are functional for law enforcement. The Tahoe and Suburban PPVs start out with the same body, frame and engine as the consumer-grade vehicles. The computer controlling the 5.3-liter V8 engine and six-speed transmission are reprogramed to optimize for acceleration as well as the stop-and-go lifestyle of a police vehicle. The suspension is arguably the most essential upgrade. A consumer Tahoe does a fine job of feeling comfy and easy to drive, but it will have a tough time chasing a bad guy taking his Corvette down an interstate off-ramp. Thats why the PPV has its springs, dampers and sway bars specially tuned. It takes away some of the luxury that civilians l ove, and in return, it made our test Tahoe PPV feel like it has a lower stance that holds its grip longer in the corners. This is still a modern SUV, which means it comes with stability and traction controls. Thus, its not as raw as the old standard, the Ford Crown Victoria. The new 2018 PPVs also get upgraded with more advanced safety options with the new Enhanced Driver Assist Package. It includes forward collision warning, lane keep assist and low-speed autonomous emergency braking (automatic braking if traffic suddenly stops ahead.) The feedback for much of this technology is felt through vibrations in the drivers seat much like what Cadillac offers to consumers today. These features are the result of realizing two truths about police cars. First, officers are supposed to be multi-taskers behind the wheel. While they are trained to balance communications, and driving during a pursuit, it certainly is beneficial to at least give law enforcement the same driving advantages that the rest of us can buy. Second, other drivers behave differently when they see a police car in the rear-view mirror. After all, no matter the speed, a lot us tend to tap the brakes when a cop car comes into view. Extra technology aids can help neutralize incidents from this erratic behavior. No matter if the end user is a civilian or a cop, everybody wants a vehicle that fits into their daily lives. The differences are in the details like one has the choice of leather seats and the other has gun rack options. And while the pricing for the Tahoe and Suburban PPVs can vary on the size of the fleet purchase, it shouldnt matter much. After all, this is the Chevy theyll pay you to drive. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

A22 WEEK OF FEBRUARY 22-28, 2018 FLORIDA WEEKLY Record 7.89 million visitors counted in 2017 The tourism marketing corporation for Palm Beach County reports a record number of visitors set foot in Palm Beach County in 2017. Discover The Palm Beaches recorded 7.89 million visitors when it reviewed the yearend hotel performance data. That was a 7.3 percent increase over 2016. A successful tourism community equates to a thriving local economy, which is why were so proud of nine consecutive years of visitation growth in The Palm Beaches, said Jorge Pesquera, president and CEO of Discover The Palm Beaches. This sustained increase reaffirms the areas continued ability to compete for global visitors, while supporting nearly 70,000 jobs. He attributed the growth to strategies carried out through marketing, group sales, media relations, social media, community engagement and tourism development activities as well the efforts by the Tourism Development Council agencies in sports, culture and film and TV. Nearly 70,000 people are employed by the Palm Beach County tourism industry. The industry provides $7.1 billion in economic impact, generates $101.2 million in local sales tax revenue returned to Palm Beach County, and generates $141 million in local property taxes. Tourism is one of our most significant economic forces, not only across Florida, but specifically in the Palm Beaches, Mr. Pesquera said. It creates and protects thousands of jobs, and drives growth for all economic sectors of Palm Beach County. Our top goal is to harness and continue to build this momentum, as we paint the picture of the Palm Beaches as a bucket-list destination. Fanjul brothers named to agriculture hall of fameAlfonso Fanjul and J. Pepe Fanjul have been inducted into the 2018 Florida Agricultural Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame recognized the success of their business endeavors in the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA), where they farm, and across the state. I am so honored to be inducted into the Florida Agriculture Hall of Fame, because I believe it is a recognition not only of us, but of our company and its contributions to Floridas economy, to jobs and to food supply, said Alfonso Fanjul, chairman and chief executive officer of Florida Crystals. Weve come a long way since we planted our first crop in Florida nearly 60 years ago with our father and our uncle, and were very proud to be recognized by our peers. The Fanjul family founded Florida Crystals in 1960 as a sugarcane farming and milling company in Palm Beach County.

She sees herself as a storyteller, but one who doesnt use words. Dancers have something to say they cant say with words, Ms. Smith said by phone. Her latest statement is a production of Gatsby, which she conceived, choreographed, cast, costumed and coaxed from a tiny crystal of an idea into a jewel on the stage at the Benjamin School Feb. 24 and 25. As the founder and artistic director of Ballet Palm Beach, Ms. Smith has been able to stretch her wings in a unique way with productions like this one based on the 1925 novel The Great Gatsby. While re-reading F. Scott Fitzgeralds story, Ms. Smith responded to the language, the perfect word choices and the themes, and she wanted to express those feelings in dance. After years of telling stories as they were interpreted by others, Ms. Smith has taken the reins, telling the stories she wants to tell. I was fascinated by the story, and by the time period, the 1920s. PHOTO BY JANINE HARRIS Jessica Dandine and Tyveze LittlejohnSEE CHALK, B11 A brooch by Wanshu Li, United Kingdom.

FOR EVERYONE.ISABELLE DE BORCHGRAVE: FASHIONING ART FROM PAPERSATURDAY, JANUARY 27 THROUGH SUNDAY, APRIL 15, 2018 www.fourarts.org2 FOUR ARTS PLAZA PALM BEACH, FL 561-655-7226 Five centuries of fashion are explored in the breathtaking art of Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave. Working in collaboration with leading costume historians and fashion designers, de Borchgrave meticulously recreates, in full scale, elaborate costumes and fashions found in historys most famous paintings and fashion collections.Isabelle de Borchgrave (b. 1946, Belgium). Marie de Medici (1543-1642), 2006. Inspired by a 1595 portrait by Pietro Facchetti (Italian, 1535/1539-1619) in the collection of the Palazzo Lancellotti, Rome. 74 x 50 x 71 inches. The exhibition has been organized by Dixon Gallery and Gardens, Society of the Four Arts, Oklahoma City Museum of Art, Frick Art and Historical Center, and Artis-Naples, the Baker Museum. COLLECTORS CORNER Lettuce pause to honor the work of a Florida potter scott SIMMONS email@example.com Dodie Thayers Lettuce Ware is as quintessentially Palm Beach as Lilly Pulitzers colorful fabrics or Stubbs & Woottens tapestry slippers. And like Lilly Pulitzer, her designs came of age in the middle of the 20th century, when Camelot was in full swing at the Kennedys Winter White House in Palm Beach. Mrs. Thayer, born into Jupiters pioneer DuBois family, came of age in the shadow of the towns lighthouse. While married to her first husband, a teacher, she gave birth to five children in seven years. It was a busy time, and money always was short. Mrs. Thayer, who always had been a talented artist, bought a used kiln and began making souvenir ashtrays and such, according to published reports. In the early s, she took some casserole dishes she had made to Au Bon Gout, a gourmet kitchen shop on Worth Avenue. But the management pooh-poohed that notion, saying the stores cookware came from France, and suggested she try creating a version of Italys green Napoli ware. She experimented, making bowls shaped like sea grape leaves, then tried overlapping cabbage leaves, with a result that is as delicate as porcelain. They caught on at Au Bon Gout, and tastemakers who frequented Palm Beach wound up with sets of the green dishes when Jackie Kennedys set sold at auction for $3,450 in 1996, it reignited interest in the pottery, which Mrs. Thayer had quit making in the late s. The rest is history her tureens, which originally retailed for $125, now sell in the thousands, when you can find them. For example, 31 cups and 28 saucers from the collection of C.Z. Guest sold for $2,750 in a heavily advertised 2015 auction by Sothebys. Its amazing that Mrs. Thayer turned out tens of thousands of pieces from her home along the Loxahatchee River. It often took weeks to create larger pieces, like those tureens, according to Mrs. Thayers niece, Kathy Kindt. Each vein in the leaf was hand-modeled and handpainted. By the late 1970s, Thayer Lettuce Ware was in all the major design magazines of the day. But Dodie Thayer resisted efforts to mass-produce her ceramic tureens, plates and other dinnerware, preferring to mold and shape the pieces at her home. It was only in the past few years that she and her family agreed to license the designs to Tory Burch. Those massed-produced items are stunning, but they lack the cachet of the Thayer originals. As for Dodie Thayer, she now is around 90 and no longer gives interviews. But her pottery lives on as a Florida classic. Bought: All Good T hings, 3 28 N. Dixie Highway, Lake Worth; 561-5477606. Paid: $300 The Skinny: I nearly fell over when I saw a tabletop covered in Dodie Thayers iconic Lettuce Ware at my local antiques mall, and I quickly bought when I saw it. I love art and objects created in Florida. As it turned out, three of the six pieces I bought had minor chips, but a crescent-shaped salad plate, leaf serving plate and cream pitcher were perfect. I bought well some of these pieces can sell in the hundreds, if you have the right market and buyer. They will go well with the large Thayer bowl I have in my corner cupboard. Now, to reorganize that space.

presidential campaign, as well as Gov. Mitt Romneys chief policy adviser. In 2015, Mr. Chen was named one of the POLITICO 50, a list of visionaries who stand out among the biggest brains in business. Politico wrote: Perhaps its his ability to critique fellow Republicans while staying true to the conservative message that makes Chen such a sought-after adviser. Mr. Chen is an expert on the business of healthcare, and his talk, The Current State of Play in U.S. Healthcare, begins at 3 p.m. in the Gubelmann Auditorium at the Society of Four Arts, Palm Beach. Admission is free for members. Tickets are $35 for nonmembers and are sold at the door 30 minutes before lecture begins. For more information, visit www.fourarts.org or call 561-655-7266.

She also found the Gatsby themes the fallacy of the American Dream, love misunderstood, money will never guarantee happiness could be expressed on the stage with the right choreography. We tell the story through imagery, music from the period, and the power of dance, she said. It will be her second time producing the ballet, with a few additions. Its a collaborative effort. The dancers are very involved in the choreography. Ballet Palm Beach, she says, is a small, elegant ensemble of dancers. Its an intimate group where dancers feel safe and are encouraged to express themselves, to find their own voices and use them, sometimes for the first time. The art of expression is perplexing, Ms. Smith says. Dancers use their bodies to convey emotions they cant speak about. We have a lot to say, she laughs. Ms. Smith loves to push the envelope, and some people say shes doing that by casting an African-American newcomer, 25-year-old Tyveze Littlejohn, in the role of Jay Gatsby, the low-born, newly rich, party-throwing playboy and the single most hopeful person the jaded narrator, Nick Carraway, ever met. But in a way, Mr. Littlejohn is perfectly cast. Born and raised on the tough streets of Jacksonville, Littlejohn first danced in public at the Boys & Girls Club talent show. Mostly he danced hip-hop, but his natural talent and work ethic got him noticed, which took him up another rung on the ladder to a future he could not have imagined. He danced his way into Duval Countys acclaimed Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, a magnet program for intensive study in the music, dance, theater and fine art. After he graduated in 2011, Mr. Littejohn apprenticed with the Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Company in Denver, and in 2012, he toured throughout Mexico with Ballet Eddy Toussaint de Montreal. Most recently, Littlejohn danced with the Lexington Ballet before joining the ensemble at Ballet Palm Beach. Ask about high points, and Mr. Littlejohn will point to his performance in Nicaraguas International Ballet Gala. Not the performance itself, but afterward, Mr. Littlejohn had the joy of teaching dance to deaf and mute children, and it reminded him that dance can touch all people, even those who cant hear the music. I love mentoring kids, he said. I was really shy at first and dance brought me out of my shell. It gave me confidence. He wants to see other kids get their chance, and its a goal shared by Ballet Palm Beach. Smith has supported the local Boys & Girls Clubs in the past, most recently giving 50 kids from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County tickets to see The Nutcracker at the Kravis Center. Both Ms. Smith and Mr. Littlejohn would like to bring more ballet to the kids, maybe in the form of lessons. I know a lot of kids who dont know what dance is. I was destined for me to be a dancer, and Im happy because I can share that. Ms. Smith says she already taught Littlejohn the most important lesson she knows: Be true to yourself.

good to us, so we try to come up with something special for them every year. The West Palm Beach twosome began working together in earnest in 2012, and dubbed themselves the Chalk Guys in 2013, around the time that they recreated the Beatles Abbey Road photograph on a street in Lake Worth. We recently recreated a photo of a jumping spider at an event in Miami, Mr. Mullen said. We enjoyed drawing it and got a kick out of watching people get creeped out at a 17-foot insect. We would love to take the creepy crawlies one step further in Lake Worth. The Chalk Guys will be among more than 600 artists who will use the asphalt as their canvas to transform the streets of downtown Lake Worth into a temporary outdoor gallery of art Feb. 24-25 during the 24th annual Lake Worth Street Painting Festival. All paintings made only of chalk remain until traffic returns to the streets and the tires act as giant erasers or until the next rain washes them away. The outdoor gallery is showcased on Lake and Lucerne Avenues between Dixie and Federal highways. The festivities begin at 10 a.m. each day and admission is free. Executive Director and Artist Coordinator Maryanne Webber said the festival is all about the art and the artists, the street painters that get down on their hands and knees for two days and voluntarily share their time, talent and the creative process with the viewing public to create temporary works of art on the asphalt surface of the street. She calls them chalk stars. The Street Painting Festival, a nonprofit organization founded by a small group of residents including Mrs. Webber in 1995 as an effort to revitalize the city, is produced by volunteers and two parttime organizers/staff. We work all year through and we work in partnership with the City of Lake Worth to produce this unique event, Mrs. Webber said. New to this year are four sided, 8-foot by 8-foot "Cubes" upon which murals will be created by visiting featured artists. The finished murals later will be installed in a more permanent home in Lake Worth. It's a celebration of the Canvas Outdoor Museum murals that were created recently and are scattered around downtown, she said. We are so fortunate to host such a wonderful outdoor exhibition in our city. This will be the third Pittsburgh artist Erik Greenawalt will chalk up a masterpiece at the festival. In 2016, he drew a Roberto Clemente baseball card and last year, he teamed with Lori Hughes of Columbus, Ohio, to draw a tribute to the Golden Girls. I'll be drawing Mister Rogers and (his puppet) King on Friday, Mr. Greenawalt said. I meet countless former Pittsburghers at the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival each year (snowbirds, transplants, people on vacation), so Fred is an opportunity to bring a piece of home with me to Florida. Besides that, he said, this is the 50th anniversary of "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood," the TV legend is being honored on a new U.S. postage stamp this spring, and Tom Hanks will play the TV star in a new movie. It's a perfect connection to my square sponsor, WXEL, Mr. Greenawalt said. The Lake Worth festival is special to him. I travel to about a dozen festivals all around the country, and there's nothing quite like the Lake Worth festival in terms of the number of artists and sheer size of the crowds, Mr. Greenawalt said. It's unreal. Being able to showcase my work in front of so many people and getting to interact with the crowds is a blast. Plus, the blue skies and warmth of South Florida in late February make for a great escape from the dreary grey cold of Pittsburgh. Indeed, weather is always a concern, particularly rain. It is every chalker's nightmare, Mr. Mullen admits. You invest so much time and energy into a piece, and you know that it isn't going to last, but it is especially sad when you are unable to even finish. As long as we can get a final picture, we can't ask for much more. Rain makes street painting fun and challenging, Mr. Greenawalt said. As long as I get to finish a piece and get photos of it, I'm OK. It can start pouring two minutes after and destroy everything and that's just fine (as was the case twice last summer in Cambridge, Ontario, with an Austin Powers piece and in Lockport, N.Y., with a Game of Thrones piece I did with fellow artist Cass Womack. I've been lucky, though. I think I've been able to finish all but one or two of more than 100 pieces over the last few years. Live music is provided on the festival's mainstage at the Cultural Plaza at Lake Avenue and M Street. Kids can demonstrate their creative skills at the Children's Meadow street painting post. Food courts and downtown restaurants will give festival-goers options to suit all culinary tastes and thirsts. Visitors should come early and come both days, Mrs. Webber said. It's fun to see the progression of the artists as they start their work and then to follow up on their progress during the entire weekend, she said. Be sure to pick up a festival program which will be available throughout the festival area.

But dont let yourself get swamped. Take a breather now and again. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your soft-hearted self is drawn to a tempting offer. But your hard-headed half isnt so sure. Best advice: Do it only after every detail is checked out to your liking. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your inventive mind should help you find a way to get around an apparently impassable barrier and make yourself heard. Your efforts get you noticed by the right people. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Youre enjoying this creative period. But by midweek, youll need to emphasize your more pragmatic talents as you consider a risky but potentially lucrative move. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) An unexpected rejection could turn into something positive if you pocket your pride and ask for advice on how you can make changes that will make the difference. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Your Lions heart gives you the courage to push for answers to a job-related situation. Stay with it. Youll soon find more believers coming out the ranks of the doubters. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your curiosity pays off this week as you push past the gossip to find the facts. What you ultimately discover could lead you to make some changes in your plans.

But dont stay back in the past too long or you might miss seeing the signpost up ahead pointing the way to a new opportunity.SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) If you feel you need to take more time to study a situation before making a decision, do so. Dont let anyone push you into acting until youre ready. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) As the Great Advice Giver, the Goat really shines this week as family and friends seek your wisdom. Someone especially close to you might make a surprising request. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Spiritual concerns dominate part of the week before more worldly matters demand your attention. An old promise resurfaces with some surprises attached. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for learning new things quickly and applying your knowledge to best advantage where needed.

The Coolinary Cafs little sister, just down the row in Donald Ross Village, is both a waiting room for the caf and its own wine and tapas bar. Flatbreads, charcuterie plates, oysters on the half-shell and the notable carrot cake finish are on the short list of offerings. Beer lovers like the unique selections as well. 1 SALUTE MARKET5530 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens. 561-425-5651; www.salute2u.com. They tout it as Napa Valley meets Palm Beach. The outdoorsy bar and wine room are upscale but still casual, with foods ranging from chorizo in puff pastry with a cheddar popcorn sauce, to smoked salmon carpaccio. Artichoke dip, naan breads dressed as pizzas, cheese and charcuterie plates are perfect for your group. A full bar is offered as well.

Beef tataki, the Too Bizaare taro and fried tofu with ginger and daigon sauce are only a few of the dozens of menu choices that include tempuras, ramen and a few Italian dishes thrown in. A large wine list, and the unique dcor (a tree grows out of the bar), with staff often named the friendliest around make for a great meet-up spot. Jan Norris FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINEGrandview market debuts in WPB Warehouse District janNORRISjan@jannorris.com The long-awaited Grandview Public Market has opened in the new Warehouse District in West Palm Beach. The former 14,000-square-foot floral import warehouse impressed those who got a first look. Sleek and hipster-modern dcor, designed by concept creator Chris Vilas spouse, Kristen SchonwaldVila. Modeled loosely on New Yorks Chelsea Market, with input from a New York restaurant group, its a gathering of vendors and an incubator for other small start-ups looking for exposure. Initial vendors are a diverse group. Food booths include Celis Produce, which se lls organic made-to-order bowls, cold-pressed juices and organic produce; Graces Fine Foods, a full-service butcher selling pasture-raised meats, and making a deli-type sandwich du jour; Clares, a chicken and wine shop with fried chicken the specialty, but global recipes, too; Zipitios, a Mesoamerican fusion spot with fresh-to-order tacos and pupusas; The Corner, a Detroitstyle square, gourmet pizza shop; Crema, serving rolled (scraped from a frozen plate) ice cream; LRT Bar, a full cocktail bar; Olive Oil of the World, an importer of oils, cheese, pasta and olives; and Rabbit Coffee, serving cold brew coffee with bagels and bialys in the mornings. Quinn is a unique home goods shop with one-off items that include dcor, books and gifts. The food and vendor space is just one part of the warehouse. Two rental spaces are here: the Loading Dock is an open-air, 2,500-square-foot room, with a 150-person capacity at one end, and the communal Living Room, a 900-square-feet room with natural light and art exhibits from local artists. Its all a community-based area; a weekly night market will have local vendors set up in the parking lot, Wednesdays, 6-9 p.m. The Warehouse District is already coming alive with the openings nearby of Steam Horse Brewing and its taproom, and Studios Inc. a recreation, health and fitness hub with numerous classes. The Palm Beach Squash Club is slated to meet here. A suite of offices, turnkey with shared conference areas, library and kitchen, is in a 5,000-square-foot industrial building. Then theres Elizabeth Avenue Station, with 19 vendors selling art, furniture, boutique clothing, jewelry, and other indie-craft and art goods. Grandview Public Market, 1401 Clare Ave., West Palm Beach. Online at www. grandviewpublic.com. The market is open daily, 7 a.m.-10:30 p.m.Make way for MavenThe space is too good to stay down long. The newest Palm Beach restaurant in a string of openings on Royal Poinciana Way is Maven, a New England import set into the former Nick & Johnnies spot. David Silva, of Nantuckets Galley Beach and Afterhouse Wine and Seafood Bar knows the connection between the island and the Massachusetts coast; he reports some customers from the North have found him here. The specialties are cold-water oysters, fish, and shellfish, with a prominent raw bar. Steaks and American brasserie foods also are on the menu. Outdoor and bar seating give way to the back dining room, noted for its retractable roof. The room has been brightened with unique overhead lamps and bright colors on seats with designer pillows for Pullman seating. Entertainment eventually will include piano jazz weeknights, and a DJ spinning jazz, funk and house music Friday and Saturday nights as the restaurant wants to compete with Cucina down the block as a post-dinner venue. Maven, 207 Royal Poinciana Way, Palm Beach; 561-220-9641; www.mavenpalmbeach.com.In briefSpeaking of Palm Beach openings, check out the Honor Bar next to Palm Beach Grill. Owned by the Hillstone Group, the same company as the Palm Beach Grill aka Houstons, they share a kitchen here. But its a bar-casual vibe where there are no reservations taken, and it opens at 11:30 for lunch. Theres a long list of cocktails, meant for the duffers just off The Breakers course, no doubt. The island has embraced it its been packed since opening. Earth and Sugar also opened its second branch in the plaza, with gourmet desserts and custom wedding cakes the purview of Janderyn Makris, cake artist. Her original shop is in southern West Palm Beach, opened in 2009.

I think the inverse could be said of this calzone, served at brunch. Its a thin, crispy crust that stuffed with fluffy scrambled eggs, bacon, bell pepper, onion and mozzarella, and served with a small cup of tomato sauce. Its filling, but doesnt leave you feeling bloated. Thats how brunch should be. Scott Simmons COURTESY PHOTOTacos from The Parched Pig.

4 FAIRWAYS OF THE PALM BEACHES FEBRUARY 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYLocal fairways ranked among the nations best BY LARRY BUSHlbush@ oridaweekly.comThe Champion at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens is ranked No. 34 among golf courses that will host PGA Tour tournaments this year. This comes from a cadre of raters for Golfweek magazine who used multiple criteria that focused on playability, conditions, memorability, walk-in-the-park factors and other subjective observations. The Champion course was a Tom Fazio original in 1981 and redesigned by Jack Nicklaus in 1990 during an 18-year run by the Senior PGA Championship, and again in 2014. Early on, the Champion was the site of the 1983 Ryder Cup and the 1987 PGA Championship. Scheduled over the Feb. 22-25 weekend, the Honda Classic has been played on the Champion since 2007. Golfweeks raters noted the Champion is known for imposing back nine par-3s (Nos. 15 and 17), adding that ShotLink data indicates it is the easiest on Tour to putt. They did not mention the par-4 16th hole, which helps comprise the heralded Bear Trap. Rating golf courses is great sport for publications like Golfweek. Some serious golfers spend their vacations seeing how many of the top 100 they can play, the rest of the year trying to find the right strings to pull to gain access on some of the more exclusive tracts. In 1979, while working for another newspaper, I had the opportunity to play Floridas Top 10. The Jupiter Hills Club was my favorite before I started and when I finished. The other nine: JDM-East, formerly PGA National, but now known as BallenIsles, Mayacoo Lakes, Pine Tree and Seminole, all in Palm Beach County; Bay Hill and Disneys Palm course in the Orlando area; Doral-Blue in Miami; Innisbrooks Copperhead in Pinellas County; and Sawgrass, before the Stadium course was built in Ponte Vedra Beach. The top five on the aforementioned list of top PGA Tour sites this year: 1, Shinnecock Hills, Southampton, New York, for the U.S. Open; 2, Augusta National, Georgia, Masters; 3, Pebble Beach, California, AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am; 4, Riviera CC, California, Genesis (LA) Open; and 5, Muirfield Village, Ohio, The Memorial. Muirfield Village is the only one built since World War II. Others in Florida: 7, TPC Sawgrass, The Players; 25, Bay Hill Club, Orlando, Arnold Palmer Invitational; and 32, Innisbrook-Copperhead, Palm Harbor, Valspar Championship.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com FEBRUARY 2018 FAIRWAYS OF THE PALM BEACHES 5 Individual daily and weekly access to the tournament grounds with special options for families and small groups. Children 15 and under are admitted free with a ticketed Honda Classic Cares in the community year round THE HONDA CLASSICEven after the last putt falls at the Honda Classic, the tournaments impact on the community can be felt year-round. Just in the past year, the Honda Classic awarded a record $3.63 million to 133 local organizations that benefit children. That number was $420,000, or 13.1 percent more than the $3.21 million that was distributed in 2016. The lives of more than 32,000 kids and their families in the local community were positively impacted by the charitable rewards of this PGA TOUR event. Since its inception 36 years ago, The Honda Classic has given more than $35 million to South Florida childrens charities including more than $20 million in the 11 years since Childrens Healthcare Charity, Inc. took over the event. The $3.63 million awarded to charity this past year included a second-consecutive individual grant of $1 million to the Nicklaus Childrens Health Care Foundation. It is also more than $1 million higher than The Honda Classic awarded just two years ago ($2.55 million/2015), demonstrating a continuation of the monstrous growth the PGA TOUR event has crafted since moving to PGA National Resort & Spa in 2007. We couldnt be more ecstatic that we are able to continually impact lives in the community with our philanthropic efforts, Honda Classic Executive Director Kenneth R. Kennerly said. Our success is a tribute to the immense commitment from American Honda, our two founding partners Tire Kingdom and United Technologies, other sponsors, volunteers and our great fan base that continues to support the tournament each and every year. The growth of the charitable rewards the tournament distributes each year is a testament to American Hondas 36 years as the longest-standing title sponsor on the PGA TOUR as well as partnerships with PGA National Resort & Spa, PGA of America, Palm Beach County, the City of Palm Beach Gardens and the PGA TOUR along with the support from Founders Club sponsors Tire Kingdom and United Technologies, and more than 200 other community-minded local sponsors. Player, corporate and spectator support has led to increased ticket sales, parking revenues, concessions and sponsorships. The Honda Classic has also benefitted the past two years from marquee champions Adam Scott and Rickie Fowler. Some of the initiatives evolving from The Honda Classics charity disbursements range from summer camp opportunities for low-income children in Jupiter through El Sol Neighborhood Resource Center to support of the Kids Club at Florida Outreach Center for the Blind. The Honda Classic contributed towards the purchase of baby formula for the emergency pantry at Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies Coalition of Palm Beach County and helped fund vision tests for kids at Lighthouse for the Blind of the Palm Beaches. Tournament funds also contributed toward the research efforts of Stop! Childrens Cancer of Palm Beach County involving the use of botanical extracts in pediatric brain tumor patients and toward helping the Tiger Woods Foundation fund the education of students learning to design video games at the Florida TGR Learning Lab. Several charities are received proceeds from the American Honda Birdies for Children program, where fans donate for the chance to guess the number of birdies in the tournament. Last year, 13 finalists got to participate in a drawing for a 2017 Honda Civic EX-L, because they each correctly guessed the total of 1,361 birdies recorded at the 2017 Honda Classic. The Honda Classic also participated last year in the Palm Beach County Food Banks Canstruction, teaming up with Hedrick Brothers Construction, and Peacock and Lewis Architects and Planners, to replicate the bear statue at the start of the famed Bear Trap on the Champion Course at PGA National. The bear statue won the Most Cans Used award and Best Use of Labels award. In addition, the Honda Classics annual Bear Trap Bash, a fun-filled evening of music, dancing and food, attracted more than 300 guests last year and supported the efforts of 16 charitable partners of The Honda Classic. If you are interested in participating in any of the Honda Classic Cares events, follow the Honda Classic on Facebook to see upcoming opportunities.

6 FAIRWAYS OF THE PALM BEACHES FEBRUARY 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYHonda Classic looks ahead to next generation of champions BY LARRY BUSHlbush@ oridaweekly.comAlmost everybody who is anybody on the PGA Tour should be playing in the Honda Classic, set for Feb. 22-25 at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens. And organizers are thrilled that will include Tiger Woods, the No. 1 everybody/anybody in professional golf for more than two decades who turned 42 in December. Mr. Woods played the weekend on the PGA Tour for the first time in 29 months, 889 days, finishing tied for 23rd at three under par 285. He hit only 17 of 56 fairways in four days, but still scored 72-70-72 on the South course and 71 the second round on the North. True, he didnt break 70 but he didnt have a round over par either. Mr. Woods has played in the Honda three times, the first in 2012, finishing in a tie for second, two strokes behind Rory McIlroy, and has done progressively worse ever since. He tied for 37th in 2013 and withdrew during the final round in 4. If he can solve his putting woes, we may be in for some unbelievable stuff, television analyst Nick Faldo, a threetime Masters and British Open titlist, said during the final round at Torrey Pines. Due to spinal fusion surgery and a myriad of other issues, both professional and personal, its been five years since Mr. Woods last tour victory, 10 years since hes won a major championship, which happened to be at Torrey Pines, the 2008 U.S. Open. The Honda Classic field will include dozens of players who were still in high school, or younger, when Woods was the king of the hill eight wins in 1999, nine more in 2000, a career total of 79 from his first in 1996 in Las Vegas to five in 2013, his most recent winning season. And many have matured enough in recent years that they no longer are intimidated by his presence, but just as eager for his return as the rest of us. They all know he is the games best attraction since Jack Nicklaus. When Tiger Woods walks to the first tee, the fans are sure to follow. They bring their money and they spend their money parking to admissions to concessions to souvenirs and merchandise, and it all leads to larger purses. Since moving across PGA Boulevard from the Country Club at Mirasol to PGA National, the Hondas list of winners has been a mix of major champions when they won here (Ernie Els, 2008, McIlroy, 2012, and Padraig Harrington, 2015), budding superstars (Y.E. Yang, 2009, Adam Scott, 2016, and Rickie Fowler, 2017), and veteran campaigners (Mark Wilson, 2007, Camilo Villegas, 2010, Rory Sabbatini, 2011, Michael Thompson, 2013, and Russell Henley, 2014). By the end of January, every champion from 2010 through 2016 had signed in. Mr. McIlroy, Mr. Scott and Mr. Fowler are among the new rush of superstars, along with Justin Thomas, the reigning PGA champion and 2017 Tour Player of the Year; Dustin Johnson, Jordan Speith, Brooks Koepka, Jon Rahm, Jason Day, Daniel Berger and on-and-on. When he finished 3-2 in his first two starts of the year in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, Mr. McIlroy showed hes healthy again after taking several months off to recover from a rib injury and heart murmur. Its great to see Rory getting back to being healthy, said Ken Kennerly, executive director of the Honda Classic. He has been such a good friend of the Honda Classic through the years and hes one of the games premier players and a fan favorite. Replied Mr. McIlroy, I feel I am a much better player than I was in 2011 and 2012 when I was able to win a couple of majors. I feel I can do better than that over the next 10 years. The landscape of the game has changed since I started to win majors. You have young, hungry guys now who are fearless and playing the game the way I did when I came out a few years ago. David Duval, a former No. 1 ranked tourist, but now a television analyst, says he has talked with several of these young players recently and many of them have mentioned how they never got to test themselves against Mr. Woods in his prime. Its funny to hear them say, I wish I could have played against him. I tell them to be careful what they wish for. Mr. Koepka, the current U.S. Open champion, will miss his hometown tournament. A graduate of Cardinal Newman High School and former Florida state schoolboy champion, Mr. Koepka has a partial tear in a tendon in his left wrist. Hes not sure when or how it happened, likely a case of wear-and-tear, but says he hopes to be back for the Masters in April, and surely in time to defend at our National Open in June at historic Shinnecock Hills in Southampton, N.Y. Masters defender Sergio Garcia has joined Mr. Thomas as 2017 major champions on board. The Honda Classic dates back to 1972, when it replaced the 1971 PGA Championship at a former PGA National (now BallenIsles) on the February calendar. At the time, it was almost an afterthought to Doral, which went back to 1962, but lost its sponsorship as a World Golf Championship event after the 2016 staging. Entertainer Jackie Gleason gave the tournament a running start as a celebrity-host the first several years at Inverrary Country Club in Lauderhill. Honda became the title sponsor in 1982 and is now the longest-tenured brand on the PGA Tour, 36 years. They moved to TPC Eagle Trace in Coral Springs in 1984, to Weston Hills in Weston in 1992, back to Eagle Trace for one year, 1996, then to TPC Heron Bay in Coral Springs, 1997-2002, Mirasol, 2003-06, finally landing at PGA National in PGA National has always seemed to be a good fit for the long term, thanks to an enthusiastic northern Palm Beach County community and its support for and from the Nicklaus Childrens Health Care Foundation and South Florida Childrens Charities. Jacks wife, Barbara, and third son, Gary, are co-chairs. In 2017, the seven-day attendance topped 200,000 for the first time, at 203,815, and they distributed a record $3.63 million to 133 local charities, impacting the lives of more than 32,000 children and their families. Hence, it should be safe to say that the Honda Classic at PGA National is still No. 1 to golf fans in South Florida. WOODS MCILROY KOEPKA THOMAS COURTESY PHOTOS / JASON MYERS

Call about our Made-to-Measure program!Jack Nicklaus offers tour of newly redesigned Legend Course at Ibis BY AMY WOODSawoods@ oridaweekly.comIn the hole, shouted someone in the gallery as soon as Jack Nicklaus drove the ball from the first tee of The Legend Course at Ibis. The golf greats swing marked the official reopening of the 26-year-old course at the West Palm Beach country club and drew a round of applause from a crowd of 250. Martin Hall, director of instruction at the Ibis Golf Academy, introduced Mr. Nicklaus as the greatest golfer of all time, an ode to The Golden Bears unprecedented 18 major-championship wins, while also describing him as equally famous for the 301 courses he has designed worldwide. Its always nice to be asked to do golf courses where you live, Mr. Nicklaus said. You dont have to travel very far when you do that, and Ive been traveling all over the world for a lot of years doing golf courses, and I probably will continue to do so, but its always a lot easier to be right here. The Legend Course was considered world-class when it debuted in February 1991, but the game of golf since has grown into a high-tech sport with higher-tech equipment, the 77-yearold explained. We made a few changes on it, Mr. Nicklaus said. Modernized it. Lengthened it a little bit from the back. Shortened it a little bit from the front. Did a whole bunch of things that tried to make it more pleasurable to the membership here at Ibis, and hopefully it works. The Legend Course originally was designed before a tree was planted or a house was built on the 1,900-acre property adjacent to Grassy Waters Preserve that now boasts 1,800 homes in 33 neighborhoods. I think we have an easier-to-maintain golf course, and I think we have a little bit more challenging golf course with more tee options for a friendlier experience, said John Jorritsma, Ibis director of sales and marketing. Mr. Nicklaus, joined by PGA Tour player Daniel Berger and several Ibis members, posed for photos as they ceremoniously cut the ribbon with a pair of oversized scissors. After the pomp, everyone retreated to the ballroom for a press conference detailing the vision behind each of the 18 holes. When asked which one is his favorite, Mr. Nicklaus joked, One, two, three. Fours pretty good. Five, six, seven. Eight. Known for his sass as well as his swing, he counted all the way up to 18 and said, I guess all of them. On a more serious note, Mr. Nicklaus referred to the par-4 sixth and the par-5 11th. The sixth has a pair of bunkers in the middle that create a double fairway from the tee, and the 11th also presents a double fairway with a water hazard in between. The 11th was featured in the October issue of Golf Digest. If they play to the left, the water comes into play for the third shot, Ibis head pro Ben Bauer said of the 11th. They can also choose to take on the water on their second shot to go to the right fairway, which, with the risk, leaves them a much easier third shot to the green.
