SMITHssmith@ oridaweekly.comMarty Ross and Yoni Yair believe tennis can do a lot to bring people together. Thats why Mr. Ross has teamed with his wife, Harriet, and friends Ellen and Steve Wechsler to sponsor a private tennis exhibition, presentation and reception at their Wycliffe Golf & Country Club Stadium Resort in Wellington on March 9. The event is geared to support the efforts of the Israel Tennis Centers, of which Mr. Yair is vice president of development. The ITC was founded 41 years ago, Mr. Ross said. Back then the organizers realized a large part of the Israel population about 35 percent was underprivileged and the kids in those families couldnt possibly grow up to contribute to this world. So they came up with the idea of building tennis centers and use them as classrooms to create a sense of security and coexistence, socialization and education. Mr. Yair confirmed the effort has been tremendously successful, citing that he is a personal product of its program. I came to the tennis center as one of the first children who attended it, just outside of Tel Aviv, Mr. Yair said. And most of the ITC centers are intentionally set in poor neighborhoods. The ITC is one of the largest social service organizations for children in Israel, he said, serving over 20,000 children there every year. Its 14 centers stretch from Kiryat Shmona in the north to Beer Sheva in the south, offering disadvantaged kids a safe, structured and nurturing environment. Centers provide tennis instruction, social services and special needs programs as well as afterschool tutoring for kids of all backgrounds including Jewish, Arab, Christian, Bedouin, Druze and immigrant populations. We feel that tennis is a great vehicle, a great tool, to bring them through the doors of our programs, Mr. Yair said. Over the years we have served more than 500,000 children, which is an incredible number. And what they get from the ITC is a very positive and safe environment where theyre kept off the streets and Backhands and baselines vs. bombs and bulletsSEE TENNIS, A23 activistArtistMary Fisher continues to be an advocate for those with AIDS.and SEE FISHER, A10 Mary Fisher was supposed to be dead by now.

Ajmo DDS, DABOI, DICOI Joseph Russo DMD, AAACD COMMENTARYThe new nuclearAs an aging boomer I find myself increasingly nostalgic. Each generation tends to recall its youth with a mixture of too-mild embarrassment and too much self-approval, as if what we did once upon a time was better than what people do now. And always will be. From that ferment we distill a heady recollection of the good old days an inebriation impervious to cool analysis, sobering historical fact or honest appraisal. Im no different. So I was warmed, charmed even, by Vlady Putins throwback presentation to his leadership cadre the other day. Standing in a small room in Moscow, he told Russian leaders their country had been ignored and relegated to second-class status long enough by the rest of the world. Russia is now again a superpower, he announced. A map of Florida presented itself on a screen behind Vlady. There, the Sunshine State looked as limp and ineffective as a flaccid male tool. Arrows appeared, pointing into the state from eight or 10 directions. Those arrows represent Russias invincible new nuclear weapons. They can hit any point on the planet (apparently including Florida where Donald Trump likes to play golf), overwhelming the most advanced contemporary defense systems, Vlady said. He made sure the world heard and saw the presentation. Now thats what Im talkin about: The return of Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. Thank you, Vlady and thanks for announcing your doomsday machine before it got used.A 1964 Stanley Kubrick film, Dr. Strangelove, depended on this single artifice for its story: The Russians (Soviets) had developed a weapon that neither they nor anybody else could disarm. Called the doomsday machine, it would erupt, destroying the planet, if anybody else on the planet, anywhere, used an atomic or nuclear weapon. Unfortunately (in the story), the powers that be didnt let the world know the doomsday machine existed in time, and a crazed U.S. general launched a limited nuclear attack on the Soviet Union. All this suggests an obvious truth: The reality of my own youth has come back around to haunt the lives of 21st century kids everywhere, including mine and yours. So far, the only thing these lazy younguns have had to worry about is an active shooter in the school hallways and classrooms. Not nuclear annihilation. What a bunch of whiners. Now, the kids are getting a taste of what it was like for us boomers back in the Cold War. Gonna make men of them. Well, some of them. So whats really happening? Hard to tell. Vladimir Putin has all kinds of irons in the fire these days, and so does our point man, Donald Trump. In Putins case, he has the hackers who manipulated our 2016 presidential election (nice job, guys); the Russian who joined the NRA and hung around polling places in Tennessee (wowz a!); and the new nuclear (Oh, sht). In Trumps case, he has his son-in-law and advisor, Jared Kushner, equipped with no top-secret security clearance and deeply in debt to international companies; his daughter, Ivanka, equipped with blonde hair; his immigrant wife, Melania, also equipped; and his in-laws, her parents, also immigrants. And of course Mr. Trump has John Kelly, who said last week God was punishing him by making him chief of staff in the White House. We dont seem to have any ambassadors, any negotiators, any plan to engage Russians and North Koreans and Iranians and Chinese and so on, the way both Republican and Democratic presidential administrations have done for 70 years. But never mind that now. Kelly, a former Marine general, is like some doctors: They think they know everything because theyre doctors. Or in his case, because hes tough, and he was a Marine general. I hope Gen. Kelly is feeding the president some good information, the kind Trump can understand like the observation of Gen. Buck Turgidson (played by George C. Scott) to President Merkin Muffley (Peter Sellers): Your average Ruskie doesnt take a dump without a plan, the general said. And by God, he must have been talking about Vladimir Putin. The minute I heard about Vladys announcement I cringed, just like in the good old days. Probably part of Vladys plan. But what he doesnt know: Ive missed cringing. Boomers cringe better than anybody else when threatened with nuclear annihilation. Miss Brickle, my then 65-ish first grade teacher who taught me to See Spot Run in 1959 appeared out of nowhere to help me cringe (being dead certainly doesnt stop people from showing up at the most unexpected moments, even when theyre not invited. Have you noticed that?). Duck and cover! she shouted cheerfully, her braided hair wrapped in tight coils atop her head, her flower-print dress hanging as usual to below her calves, exposing about 18 inches of heavily stockinged leg above old-lady clodhopper shoes, the kind my grandmother also wore. We boomers could move faster to crawl under our school desks and put our hands over our heads than any Millennial ever invented, especially with Miss Brickle shouting at us. In those days, the height of the Cold War, children were scared as hell the Soviets would hit us with missiles, the sky would turn orange and red, and wind blowing 400 mph and measuring 1,000-degrees Fahrenheit would cook and dissemble us in an instant, then blow our ashes into an eternal wasteland. I had a periodic nightmare that I stood in front of my house watching the sun grow bigger and bigger and bigger, before it swallowed me, my family and my neighbors. The sun was a Soviet bomb. And that was Colorado, not Florida, so times have changed. But not enough. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

No portion may be reproduced without the express written consent of Florida Media Group, LLC. OPINIONSecond-guessing the second-guessersAllow me to play devils advocate. Its what I do as a journalist, plus I personally enjoy taking on orthodoxy, particularly when it involves a binge of second-guessing. Thats exactly what we are witnessing in the wake of the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Im about to defend the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Im not necessarily a fan of the FBI or, for that matter, of so many police agencies that can be overzealous in pursuit of what they perceive to be law and order. That said, I think the feds and all the other agencies that failed to intercede when presented with warnings about the alleged Stoneman Douglas assassin Nikolas Cruz are getting a bum rap. For starters, the FBI tip line must sift through a flood of calls and emails slightly more than a million and a half last year. But these warnings, you say, deserved special attention. What might that special attention entail? At what point do agents put on a full-court press? At what point do they put under surveillance or take into custody someone who has been anonymously accused? When were social agencies, which had years of experience with Cruz, to decide that they may impose on his right to not be institutionalized? First of all, our politicians have made sure that we have a shortage of mental health facilities. In many ways, social workers, psychologists and educators are impotent; there is little they can do. Lets face it, that mantra from officials If you see something, say something is not realistic. While its probably a good thing to err on the side of caution, it is not cool to err on the side of error and cause humiliation to someone who is just minding his business until hes hassled by someone in uniform. Besides, thats just an invitation to those who have malicious motivations, such as pranksters, to cause someone embarrassment. How many false alarms or swatting incidents do we need to realize that our national paranoia is a slippery slope? The FBI and other entities on the receiving end must factor all of that in. When they do react, there is always a danger that theyll overreact. The same goes for the harsh criticism leveled at the deputy sheriff who didnt charge into the building during the assault rifle fusillade. We dont know what was in his mind. Maybe we should before we second-guess. Perhaps we can focus on the decision to assign just one armed cop to such a large school. Lets engage in a little justified second-guessing about those goofy proposals to arm teachers. All we need to know about that idea to realize that its ridiculous is that its supported by the National Rifle Association. Nuff said. These are the same people who make the vile charge that media love school massacres because theyre good for ratings. Let me counter by arguing that its the NRA that loves school massacres, because the outcry that follows is good for fundraising. Heres a little first-guessing: Our lawmakers need to do something about restricting guns in a society that is saturated with them. It wont solve our deadly problem, but its a step in the right direction. Nothing else is. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. Why John Kelly is irreplaceableIf John Kelly didnt exist, President Donald Trump would have to invent him, and he wouldnt be able to. The chief of staff had a rocky couple of weeks with the imbroglio over ousted White House staff secretary Rob Porter, but he is as close as it gets to an indispensable man in the Trump White House. Where else is the president going to find someone whom he likes and respects (at least on most days), who can intimidate the White House staff into a semblance of order, who has experience in wielding responsibility in even more difficult circumstances, and who shares Trumps instincts? The last of these is the reason why, more than any other, there has been a major downdraft in Kellys press coverage. He went from Trumps Last Best Hope, per Time magazine last August, to a bitter disappointment. A writer at FiveThirtyEight wrote a piece the other day explaining How the Media Bungled the John Kelly Story, referring not to any specific story about Kelly, but to the overall sense that hed be a restraining influence on the president. Kellys boosters in the media had a fantasy that he would show up at the White House and take Trump aside at some point and explain, It is my solemn duty to advise you, Sir, to accept whatever immigration proposal that Lindsey Graham backs, and failing that, my resignation letter will be on your desk in the morning. This didnt accord with Kellys hawkishness as secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. What most people had missed about Kelly is that hes an Irish Catholic kid from Boston who shares Trumps Northeastern workingclass conservative sensibility that is tough-minded and impatient with political correctness. Kelly took justifiable incoming over the Porter fiasco, which was badly mishandled. But it wasnt the chief of staffs responsibility to bird-dog Porters security clearance. With all the negative press coverage of the Porter fiasco, stories inevitably emerged of Trumps thinking about a replacement for Kelly. If Trump were actually to dump him, itd be his most destructive personnel move since firing FBI Director James Comey. Trump wouldnt get someone whom he admires as much. The president respects military men and billionaires, and perhaps the former even a little more than the latter. Kelly, the Marine general who lost a son in Afghanistan, can speak to Trump peer to peer in a way no Washington politico can. Trump wouldnt find someone else who is so clearly in it for the right reasons. Kelly didnt want the position and repeatedly refused it when it was first offered. He has no interest in jockeying for his next big Washington job or in cashing in. Trump wouldnt find a comparable enforcer. Kellys military bearing and no-nonsense demeanor serve him well in the cockpit of Trump world. His extensive leadership experience in even more complicated, high-pressure situations has prepared him for an environment in which chaos and the sense of crisis constantly emanate from the top. In short, it is Kelly or bust. Trump should consider himself fortunate to have him, and avoid the fools errand of trying to find an improvement.

KATIE KREISChiropractic Physician Full Physical Therapy Facility 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.

The foundation seeks to improve health through community collaboration. The challenge is a countywide campaign that focuses on physical activity, nutrition and healthy behaviors. The foundation hopes participants will continue with the program after it ends because regular physical activity can decrease the risk for obesity.

All entries should be 3 minutes long or less. All video contest entries are due by Monday, March 19. Palm Healthcare Foundation started this annual month-long campaign six years ago, because we truly believe that physical activity is a key component to preventing a multitude of health issues, said Marge Sullivan, vice president of communications at Palm Healthcare Foundation. In 2017, thousands of Palm Beach County residents logged over 7 million minutes of physical activity. Two teams earned top spots as Palm Healthcare Foundations Lets Move Gold Medal Champions. The city of Delray Beach and the city of Boynton Beach each logged more than 1,000,000 minutes of physical activity.

Fact: PET TALESPlant threat to pets BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationThe couple knew the sago palm (Cycas revoluta) in their Tucson, Arizona, backyard was toxic to pets. They were careful to keep leaves and other parts of the plant picked up and away from their 2-yearold German shepherd, but one day he managed to ingest a small amount of the ornamental plants feathery leaves. The reaction was rapid: severe liver failure. Depending on the individual protein, normal liver enzyme levels range from 5 to 150. This dogs alanine transaminase level spiked to 8,777. A rapid rise in that enzyme is a distinguishing characteristic of sago palm poisoning. Sago palms, also known as cycads, cardboard palms, fern palms and coontie plants, hail from tropical and subtropical areas but have become popular ornamental plants in the United States in the past 10 to 20 years. Once strictly outdoor plants, they are now available in small varieties suitable as houseplants. In 2015, the ASPCAs Animal Poison Control Center reported a spike of more than 200 percent in sago palm toxicity cases nationwide. All parts of the plant contain a neurotoxin called cycasin, which can be deadly even in tiny amounts to dogs and cats. The seeds, or nuts, are the most toxic part of the plants. As few as one or two can be fatal. Because sago palms are relatively new additions to yards and homes, many people, including some veterinarians, dont know that they are toxic. Fortunately, the German shepherds owners were aware of the danger to their dog and took him to a veterinary hospital right away. The first veterinarian they saw wasnt familiar with sago palm toxicity, but a second had encountered the plants at a previous practice in California and recognized the dogs signs. Ingestion of sago palm leaves, seeds or other plant parts causes liver failure, usually signaled by drooling, vomiting, diarrhea or a tarry black stool, depression, appetite loss, abdominal pain, lethargy and jaundice. Signs can begin to occur as little as 15 minutes after ingestion, and pets can die within 24 to 48 hours. Any suspected exposure to a sago palm should be considered an emergency situation. Dont wait and see, and dont waste time trying to get the pet to vomit. This particular dog received IV fluids, dextrose given intravenously to maintain blood sugar levels, vitamin K to help support the bloods clotting ability, and a drug to help protect the liver. He was lucky to survive. According to the Pet Poison Helpline website (petpoisonhelpline. com), the survival rate is approximately 50 percent, even with aggressive treatment. Although he survived, the dog lost a lot of weight, and recovery was slow. The experience highlights the importance of knowing exactly what plants are in your yard and home, their scientific names and common names, and whether theyre known to be toxic. Plants common names can vary by region, but the scientific names remain the same and can be essential to determining whether a plant is toxic. And be aware that not all regional plants appear on lists of toxic plants. Its a good idea to check with a veterinary toxicologist or other botanical expert whos familiar with the properties of plants in your area. If you have any doubts, take your pet to the veterinarian right away, along with a clipping or photo of the plant. Proper identification is important to the treatment plan because in some cases, even if the animal looks and acts normal, he could develop liver or kidney failure within hours or days. So is the sago palm still in the owners yard? No. They removed it the same day their dog was hospitalized. Pets of all ages, breeds and mixes can be attracted to plants, and they dont know whats toxic and whats not. The sago palm is one thats highly toxic to dogs and cats.

More than half of those ER visits were made by those over the age of 65. In some cases, combinations of medications can produce side effects that may cause an older adult to go from minimally assisted living to becoming completely dependent. A common mantra among doctors is any symptom in an elderly patient should be considered a drug side effect until proved otherwise. The effects of medication-related problems or drug interactions may mimic other diseases and conditions associated with aging including: Excessive drowsiness Confusion Depression Delirium Insomnia Parkinsons-like symptoms Incontinence Muscle weakness Loss of appetite Falls and fractures Changes in speech or memory These symptoms should be considered a warning that a medication-related problem may be occurring. However, remember that some of these symptoms may indicate a life-threatening problem such as a stroke. Call 9-1-1 if someone suddenly exhibits these symptoms. You should take all current medications with you to the emergency room so the doctors can check for medication problems as well. There are many things you can do to help prevent you or a loved one from experiencing problems with medications. Sometimes overmedication occurs because your physician is unaware of all of the prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, vitamins and herbal remedies you are taking. Have your physician conduct a brown bag review. Collect all of your medications and take them to your physicians office during your next visit. With the help of your physician, review each medication. Determine if the medication is still necessary, if there are any potentially negative interactions between medications and whether each dosage is correct. Often, older adults face problems because a physician will prescribe a new drug without changing the dosage on an older medication, so make sure all of your medications are recent and relevant. You also may want to keep a current list of your medications and the dosage for each in your purse or wallet. This information can be very helpful if you need emergency medical treatment. You also should include a person to contact in case of an emergency, the name and phone number for your physicians, a list of medical conditions you are being treated for and any surgeries you have had. Another resource is your pharmacist who can use drug interaction software to help detect possible problems between your medications. Your pharmacist often can take time to explain any new medications and how they should be taken. The most important thing is to make sure your pharmacist and doctor know about all of the medications that you take so they can conduct a comprehensive survey. Ask your health care provider about the necessity of any new medications. Any time you are taking more than two or three drugs, the risk of a drug interaction increases exponentially. Discuss alternatives to new medications. For example, if you are already taking all the medications you absolutely need to take and you begin to have problems sleeping, ask your doctor about ways to improve sleep without adding a new medication to the list. If you are prescribed a new medication, make sure you understand exactly what it is being prescribed for and how you should take it. Some medications work better on an empty stomach while others require that you eat first. Also check and make sure you understand the schedule you need to use to take the medication correctly. Ask your doctor to be specific about how you need to take the medication and ask that it be written down for you. Often, older adults may be prescribed new medications because the old ones are not working, but in reality the older adult is simply not taking the medication prescribed. It is very important for older adults to take their prescribed medications; therefore, contact your health care provider if you experience: Difficulty remembering to take your medications Difficulty reading labels on prescriptions or over-the-counter products Difficulty hearing instructions from health care providers Difficulty opening bottles, breaking tablets, or handling medicines Difficulty swallowing tablets Difficulty scheduling different medications throughout the day. There are many tools your health care provider can give you to help you with these challenges. For example, you can get a pill organizer to help you remember which pills are for each day. Or, you can ask the pharmacists to cut the pills for you if you are having trouble breaking them yourself. Overall, it is important to remember that it is OK to ask questions, try alternate solutions to medications and to update your primary care physician on any new medications you may be taking. This way you can prevent overmedication and undesirable side effects from affecting your life. If youre ever in need of our emergency services, youll be able to receive care at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center. Youll have access our emergency team which includes emergency specialists, paramedics, medical technicians and specially trained doctors and nurses.

worked in television before becoming Gerald Fords advance man she was the first woman to hold the job, in fact. Her career path seemed set. But all that changed after an AIDS diagnosis in 1991. I didnt think I was going to live it was about five years that I had, by the nature of no meds at the time for me, so I was ready, she said from the West Palm Beach studio where she now works as an artist. I was driven in those days to make art, and I dont know where it came from. To be honest with you, I dont know where the art came from, she said. Two of the pieces are on the wall up there. Its not Egyptian, its not hieroglyphics, its not Chinese, its not Japanese. Where? I dont know. It came from some other place, and I did a lot of that work in the 1991-92 years a lot, like, tons of it. Something mustve had to come out. That inspiration continues. She has been coming to South Florida all her life. Her studio, a vast space on South Dixie Highway between Southern and Forest Hill boulevards, was filled with fiber art and paintings in progress. There were piles of thread and yarn in one area. In another, a canvas for a needlepoint rug sat partially stitched, and was receiving an applique embellishment. Assistants moved about the room, working to a soundtrack of music by Sting. Ms. Fisher, who turns 70 this year, remained at the center of the activity, her eyes sparkling behind her black horn-rimmed glasses. She was calm, but purposeful, as she remembered the early days of her art career. For a recent exhibition at West Palm Beachs Armory Art Center, she created an installation that was a centerpiece of a show that included other top artists in fiber art. Ms. Fisher also paints with colored fiber, and said she was looking to do more photography. She has written six books. She remains busy as a speaker and AIDS activist, and she tries to do good where she can.Beginnings of activismShe might never have been an activist, or an artist, for that matter, had it not been for her own tragedy. Whod have thought that Mary Fisher, the sprightly GOP operative, would be diagnosed with AIDS? At the time, the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome was thought of as a disease that affected gay men. But she had volunteered at Gratitude House, the alcohol and drug addiction rehabilitation center, and had seen several women showing up HIV-positive. I knew in my heart of hearts that it had to be a heterosexual disease. They were saying, Maybe drugs. Because in those days nobody knew, or they didnt want to talk about it if they did know, she said. She did not learn her ex-husband was HIV-positive until after they had divorced. I thought when I first heard he was positive, he mustve just gotten it. Then that wasnt so true, because if I had known what I know now, I would have understood that. He was very ill when he was diagnosed and didnt know it, or said he didnt know it, she said. The future for her family looked bleak. Two small children, and any mother would say there isnt anybody family, friends, whatever who could love your children the way you love them. Any mother, I think, would feel that ripping apart of your heart when you think youre not going to be there for them and theyre going to be orphans, she said. Her ex-husband died in 1993, the year after her groundbreaking speech. Sons Max and Zachary remain at the center of her life. Part of the reason that I went public is for them. I didnt want them to feel the shame that I saw walls of stigma in this disease and around people that connected to this community horrible, horrible stigma, she said, adding, I didnt know if I could do anything, but I just had to do something and this is what it turned out to be.AIDS and the White HouseMs. Fisher reached out to President George H.W. Bush and his wife, Barbara. She tried to show the first lady the AIDS Memorial Quilt, which was to be displayed on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. Theres an unknown story about Barbara Bush, Ms. Fisher said. I often wish people understood them better Bush 41 because she wanted to go see the quilt on the Mall in Washington, and I arranged it. She didnt want press. She just wanted to see it and experience it because she really had a sense of the epidemic and the friends that she had lost. Ms. Fisher thought they were set to see it. We arranged it, I went to get her, I went to the White House, we had lunch and said, Lets go. We got a call saying, We cant unroll it because its too wet. Its hard to ask the first lady to change her schedule, but Ms. Fisher did it anyway. I said to her, Can we do it tomorrow? So she rearranged everything and it was still too wet the next day. It could have made a difference in the struggle (for) to win support for those who were ill. I felt horrible because people would have understood where her heart was and their heart was, Ms. Fisher said. She worked with President Bush to help him strike the right chord, but it was a struggle. I had worked really hard to get him words he could say around this he just didnt have the words. It was a language issue, I think, too, to understand how to talk about AIDS and HIV and the community, she said. That was then, this is now. And Mrs. Bush? She would have loved being there and sharing her heart, Ms. Fisher said.Changes in the GOPShe is not happy with the direction the Republican Party has taken over the past three decades. I dont know where it went, the party, she said. I worked for Gerald Ford. That was my president. That was the kind of man who I believed had the integrity to be a president, even though it wasnt something he sought. I dont know where my party went. Really, I dont have a clue. The Fords radiated an easy friendliness. They both were, not just warm, they were fun and they were funny. And they were funny together, to watch them interact with each other, and loving very, very loving, Ms. Fisher said. They were likable. I loved them, but I think I loved them before I really knew them. I liked them before I knew them, then I loved them. They genuinely cared about people. I guess they had in their heart that people are important. Its not just about corporations; the people make up the corporations. Its not just government, its people who make up the government, she said. And Betty Ford was a trailblazer, especially when it came to breast cancer awareness and treatment of addictions. She was kind, Ms. Fisher remembered. She was a good friend and my mentor when I went through the whole thing. When I was first diagnosed they were godparents to my children and they were devastated and they were supportive in a way that even family couldnt be supportive, she said. Mrs. Ford had grace. She was my mentor, so I still talk about the things she told me how to comport yourself and how to take the measure of you when its not about you, Ms. Fisher said. You have to remember that theres humility built into what we do because theres a bigger picture out there.The advance manMs. Fisher was only 27 when she assumed the role of advance man for President Ford, whod taken office after Richard Nixons resignation. As an advance man, you have to keep him in your eye. I always knew it was going to be difficult being a woman and doing that because its not what people are used to, she said. I had to pay my dues with the Secret Service and communications and press. Id already done press because Id already worked for ABC. I had a lot of backing and I was young enough to have the energy. The respect did not always come readily. She remembered the mayor of a city President Ford was visiting. He wanted to meet the president. Its me and these big guys, she said, referring to the White House staff. And he said, Im not talking to you. Im waiting for the advance man. And I said, I am the advance man. If it had happened in the beginning of my time there, it would not have worked out so well. But I said, I am the advance man and this is what you get and you have A10 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY FISHERFrom page 1 FISHER Mary Fisher works on fiber art in her studio. Lee Jofa, one of the worlds top manufacturers of fabric and wallpaper, used her designs for its Groundworks Collection. Mary Fisher, at work in her studio, says she was driven to create art after her AIDS diagnosis. Something mustve had to come out, she says.
PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2018 NEWS A11 to talk to me or you dont get to be on the tarmac. And the agent stood there like this, and said, Im going to call the White House. I said, Go ahead. Call the White House. And he did, she said. He was told whatever they told him and he still wasnt happy about it. The agents and communications people all said, Look, if you dont talk to her, theres not going to be a schedule and youre not going to be in it, because she makes the schedule. I had times like that. She can laugh about it now, and theres a bonus. People walk up to me and say, Thank you for what you did. I didnt do it for that reason. I loved it. It was like producing and putting things together.Defying the oddsOne could say Ms. Fisher also made a career of trying to stay healthy. Then she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She had double mastectomies and tried reconstructive surgery, but the procedures failed. The reaction to her cancer diagnosis was very different from the reaction to her AIDS diagnosis. I find when you get a cancer diagnosis, you have so many people right there, she mused. They want to tell you their story, they want to help you, they want to give you a doctors name. They want to cook for you, they want to do whatever they can to make you feel better and be with you and hold your hand. Then theres AIDS. That diagnosis does not engulf you with love, she said. It truly is something that truly sets you apart from the community, and people dont want you in their lives. Ive seen families destroyed and children taken away from parents just horrible things. For Ms. Fisher, that means the fight continues. She pointed to a question posed last year by Georgia State Rep. Betty Price, wife of former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, who asked whether those with HIV could be quarantined. Were going backward, not forward, she said. You cant be complacent and not let it go. Unless we do something about it, its not going to be better. A quarantine would be self-defeating, she said. We are trying to get people to get tested, because if youre tested, we can put you on medication. And anybody whose viral load is undetectable will not pass this disease on. Quarantine is not the answer. At one time, activists hoped a cure for AIDS might be developed. That has not happened so far, but the disease is far more manageable than it was in 1991, when Ms. Fisher was diagnosed. And people say, So what? Theres medicine. No big deal, right? she said. I have a little lipodystrophy here and there and I have a little bit of side effects from the medications that I can take, but I cant take the strongest ones, so I have to be monitored every three months, so its not like its over. But its not over for Ms. Fisher, either. It doesnt go away and you either make the decision, like me I made a decision to be public, she said. And when youre public, you talk about it, and when youre offered an opportunity, you talk about it. And you encourage and you love and you explain. And you do it with a certain amount of gratitude. Im grateful to be alive. Im very grateful to be a woman, Ms. Fisher said. And Im very grateful to have a platform where I can use my voice, my art and my heart to say what is right. One good deed begets a braceletAmong Mary Fishers latest projects is The 100 Good Deeds Bracelet. The premise: Bracelets are strung with 100 beads and a rubber ring the wearer moves after anonymously completing a good deed. She drew inspiration from filmmaker Thomas Morgan, who played the 100 Good Deeds game with his family. It has been one of those magical projects because its a win-win-win. I had been working with women in Africa for about 10 years before these came out, she said. She and her assistant traveled to seven countries. We taught women how to make the cord and how to make the bracelets. And they get paid, which has changed their lives, she said. They learn about community, they learn about taking care of each other in that way. Its empowering. I think they learned what it meant to have business, to get a job. Some of these people, they didnt have skills, they didnt have jobs, she said. This was a way up, out. They could feed their children, they could send them to school, they could do all those things. The bracelets are a reminder of the change wearers can make each day. There are lots of people who do huge, big things. Thats not what this bracelets about. This bracelets about how we take care of our community, Ms. Fisher said. What are the good deeds and things we do in our own community, where we live? Churches and schools, where we shop, in our offices, wherever. Its meant to be a reminder of we can do good deeds for people. Prices for the bracelets start at $30. Theyre available online at www.100gooddeeds. org and www. maryfisher.com, and in Macys stores.

The company has filled the newly built showroom space and interior design center with elegantly arranged furnishings to suit a variety of lifestyles, from traditional to modern. Robb & Stucky clients will find a team of more than 20 employees at the store, including veteran interior designers, to aid them in whatever purchases theyre considering.BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ oridaweekly.com T MONEY & INVESTINGOne retail clothing chain might be immune to Amazon Everyone knows that traditional chain retail clothing stores in the U.S. are dead, right? Well, in this case, everyone would be wrong. There is one international retailer that is attracting more customers, ringing up greater sales, and is being rewarded with an all-time high stock price, even as the overall markets are plunging. The company was founded in 1956 as Zayre Corp. However, in 1989, the company sold the Zayre name and was left with its remaining brand name, T.J. Maxx. In 1995, the company acquired one of its main competitors, Marshalls, which doubled its size and the company was branded as TJX Companies. Today the company has annualized revenue of over $40 billion, almost 4,000 store locations, and it operates in nine countries. TJX is known as an off-price retailer where the company sells name brand and fashion clothing at discount prices. Customers enjoy the treasure hunting aspect of shopping where there are always new and different products in the stores. Last week the company posted earnings that beat expectations of betterthan-expected holiday sales. In addition, TJX reported that same store sales increased by 4 percent in the quarter. This is even more impressive given the current retail environment where most retailers are experiencing negative sales trends. TJX pointed to a few factors that contributed to its success. First, the company stated that the improving economy enabled people to spend more of their income on clothing. Second, it said it was well positioned for the cold weather in much of the country by stocking up on cold weather clothing. And finally, its message to consumers of offering high fashion clothing at low prices was connecting. Going forward, TJX is optimistic regarding its prospects.

In addition, higher minimum wages and pay raises for lowerto middle-income families will also be a strong tailwind this year. Management demonstrated its optimism by first boosting TJXs dividend by 25 percent. It also committed to buying back between $2.5 billion and $3 billion of its stock during this fiscal year. And even after posting new stock highs, the company is not overly pricey. It has a P/E of around 22, which is lower than other retail stores like Walmart with a P/E of 28. I think there is still room to run for this stock. If there is one retail stock that is so far immune to Amazon and online shopping, it appears this is the one. 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. Our staff are really true blue interior designers and we offer complimentary interior design, said spokesperson Sandra Spiro. The rest of the team includes a cutgoods manager, computer aided design specialist, visual merchandiser, and office and warehouse staff members, led by general manager Frank DAngelis. Its also easy to find, being a freshly minted 30,000-square-foot, two-story building at 1353 N. Federal Highway. The store is its own best billboard, Ms. Spiro says, because its right there on Federal, I mean you cant miss it, its like a Phoenix, you know what I mean? The building was developed and designed by Matthew Kragh of MHK Architecture and Planning, a South Florida architectural firm. Inspired by the coastal styles that reflect the local culture, the company says, the showrooms design embraces the communitys history while better positioning the city to meet the needs of Bocas growing population. Boca Raton has always been an important part of our roll-out strategy, said Eric Chien, Robb & Stucky vice president and CFO. We are establishing a strong foothold on Floridas east coast like we have on the west. Our consistent growth is a testament to Robb & Stuckys commitment to Florida and our promise to provide our clients the ultimate shopping experience in the home furnishings sector. We could not do this without our talented and dedicated employees or our highly valued clientele. We welcome everyone to be a part of the new Robb & Stucky. The showroom features signature brands that the stores design experts believe will be well-received in the local market. We mainly cater to the snowbirds and customers with second residences, thats our main client, Ms. Spiro said. Our other clients are professionals who live here year-round. Those popular brands include American Leather, Bernhardt Interiors, Century, Chaddock, Marge Carson, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, Phillips Collection, Stanley, Taylor King, Theodore Alexander, Vanguard and W. Schillig. Many of the products are one-of-a-kind items only available through Robb & Stucky. Both the first and second floor of the showroom have floor-to-ceiling windows that stream natural light over the furnishings on view, helping clients and designers accurately assess their true color, said Mark Stuart, Robb & Stucky creative director. And although its a big showroom, the furnishings are divided into smaller lifestyle sections to more accurately reflect how they might appear in someones home. The smaller spaces help you zone in and realize the scale of the furniture, he said. It translates to residential spaces much better that way, so you dont buy a huge bed and get it home and say, Oh, it looked so much smaller in the store. The lifestyle sections depicted in the showroom include an area called The District, with urban loft-style furnishings, as well as the more conservative New Traditions area. The Waters Edge areas are inspired by coastal styles including a Modern Beach House collection. (Modern Beach House), its very light fabrics, casual, Mr. Stuart said. It means more just very light, pops of color. It encompasses one of a kind items like cocktail tables that are made out of petrified wood. The company continues to stay abreast of the latest fashions and local trends in what clients want, Mr. Stuart said. Were always on top of whats selling, what clients are responding to, and what theyre not. Robb & Stucky was established in 1915 in Fort Myers. The companys other Florida showrooms are in Fort Myers, Naples, Sarasota and Coral Gables. For more information, call 561-931-2700 or visit www.RobbStucky.com.

A18 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELThe new Compass makes good on being a JeepThe new Jeep Compass is the one we should have been given from the start. The first-generations identity crisis lasted a decade as it went from proudly being car-like to looking like a baby Grand Cherokee. This secondgeneration model is confidently a Jeep from day one. The styling picks up the Grand Cherokee cues again, with the narrow grille, squared-off fenders and chunky rear with sunk-in tailgate. Everything is a bit smaller scale on the Compass compared to its big brother, but it fits together well. Basically, its a two-thirds Grand Cherokee for two-thirds the price. Jeep has been doing a particularly good job with interiors lately, and much of that has to do with the optional Uconnect system. The center touchscreen is utilized for the hands-free phone operation, radio functions, sat nav, climate control and much more. It isnt revolutionary that an infotainment system does all of these functions, but its worth noting when one does it so well. Uconnect has been on the Chrysler products for a few years now, and they are continuously refining the interface for improved functionality and faster processing. A central 8.4-inch touchscreen has the potential for technology overload, but the system is well-laid out, easy to understand, and utilizes icons to acknowledge when its virtual buttons are touched. Plus, not all screens of this size can multitask with both radio info and sat nav like it does here. The rest of the interior deserves praise, just not as much. The bucket seats are comfy, the steering wheel is grippy and the cabin feels airy. Plus, the stretched wheelbase of the related Renegade gives the Compass some very welcomed extra rear legroom over its little brother. Out on the road, the new Compass feels like a true Jeep. It rides high, like a good crossover should, and it doesnt suffer from excessive bounce for standing on its tippy toes. The 180 horsepower 2.4-liter motor is the only engine available, and our test vehicle had the optional nine-speed automatic transmission. These two work together to make this generation Compass a better Jeep. For example, on our off-road focused Trailhawk edition, there was the right kind of torque and gearing to give our 4WD Low setting good footing on sandy Florida terrain. The downside to this motor/transmission combo is on-road use. The Compass doesnt feel as peppy as crossovers that are more closely based on cars. There is a six-speed manual available, and the Compass is the only vehicle in the Jeep lineup that will allow the 2.4liter motor to be paired to a stick-shift. Its a nice way for those who want more Sport in their Sporty-Utility Vehicle, but in reality, this is a rarity. The Compass is really about being a mid-point commuter machine where Jeep prowess meets useful comfort. Those who need a hardcore 4x4 would buy a Wrangler, and those who want something sporty would buy a Mazda sedan. Representing the median can be quite useful. A Compass Sport (the base model) can be optioned with allwheel drive, an automatic transmission, parking sensors, dual automatic climate control and Uconnect touchscreen all for a sticker price of under $27,000. Add in Jeeps history of good discounts, and this is a vehicle that can likely be taken home for well under $25K. There are more expensive versions available checking every option box will create a leather-lined Limited model that retails for around $37K. But that kind of money opens up a wider world of more capable vehicles. Instead, the right Compass is the value-priced machine that has the allure of the Jeep attitude, some genuine bad weather driving ability, room for a small family and a handful of worthwhile features. This isnt the perfect off-road machine or on-road grocery-getter. But by being a proper mid-point, we finally have a Compass that feels more like a useful Jeep. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com EARL ON CARSTen Commandments for car dealership employeesI composed these ten commandments for all the employees in my car dealership, aka The Earl Stewart Code. They didnt come to me in a vision or on a mountaintop, but evolved over 50 years as a car dealer. Most of them evolved over the last two decades, which is why I often refer to myself as a recovering car dealer. But just like the biblical Ten Commandments, they dont do any good unless people know, understand and apply them. In my dealership, all my managers and other employees know that we must walk the talk. 1. Do whatever our customer asks, if she believes shes right. Its not important whether our customer is right or wrong, only if she honestly believes shes right. 2. Do what is right for the customer even if you dont have to. Just because were not required by law or contract to do the right thing is no excuse. 3. If your supervisor is not available, then you do what is the right thing for our customer. All Earl Stewart employees are empowered to spend or do whatever is necessary to do the right thing by a customer. If in 20-20 hindsight you should err, you will not be held to blame because you acted in good faith to make our customer happy. 4. Answer all phone calls, emails, texts and messages of any kind from our customers ASAP. Nothing angers a customer (or me) more than a delayed or nonresponse from us. 5. All customers must be treated with courtesy and respect always. Just because you judge a customer to be unreasonable is no excuse not to treat that customer with courtesy and respect. If you are incapable of dealing with a customer, involve your supervisor or me. 6. You will always tell our customers the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. I believe in giving every Earl Stewart employee a second chance, except when it comes to dishonesty. 7. Your first loyalty is to our customer, not to the auto manufacturer. In the rare case where a dispute arises between our customer and Toyota over warranty coverage, for example, we advocate for our customer. We argue and present the facts on behalf of our customer, but abide by Toyotas decision. 8. You must personally take ownership of our customers problem. This means that if you are the first person to learn of a customers complaint or problem, you have the responsibility to stay on top of its resolution until you personally verify that the issue has been resolved. Dont just refer or delegate the problem to someone else even it is outside your department. 9. Promise our customer less than you will deliver. Always be conservative when making promises to your customers. Overestimate the time of a service or the date of arrival of the new car they ordered. Under-promise and over-deliver. 10. Trust your customer as much as you hope he will trust you. Weve all been burned by trusting someone who disappointed us, but thats a very small percentage. The fastest way to earn trust is to trust the person you want to trust you. Somebody must go first. Let it be us. earlSTEWARTearls@estoyota.com561-358-1474

The Aunt Jemima of today doesn't resemble the original. Chief Wahoo of the Cleveland Indians baseball team will be banned from the uniforms in a year. But has it gone too far? It has been suggested that the Fighting Irish Leprechaun, mascot of the University of Notre Dame sports teams, be dropped as nonpolitically correct. Though derived from Irish folklore, some think he is a negative stereotype that insults those of Irish background. As always, there are two sides to the argument, and so far, those who like their leprechaun are winning. This leprechaun probably was inspired by "Paddy and the Pig," a caricature used by British political cartoonists since the 1840s to represent Ireland and the Irish people. Paddy was the ignorant peasant; the pig was the backward agricultural nation. Paddy wore breeches, a patched coat and a strange hat. Most of the political arguments were about Irish Home Rule, a hot topic in Victorian England politics. The comic Paddy was recreated as a toy. A version made by Lehmann, a German toy manufacturer, depicts Paddy trying to ride an uncooperative pig that moves back and forth while Paddy holds on for dear life. It sold at a Bertoia auction in New Jersey recently for $1,320. Q: I bought a set of Avon 1876 Cape Cod dishes, one for me and one for my daughter, but I gave mine to her thinking she might get married someday, but she never did. She's 65 now and the dishes have never been used. It's a set of 12 and the dishes are ruby red. They have never been used, and still are in the boxes they came in. I'd like to sell them. What are they worth? A: Avon started as the California Perfume Company in 1886. The name Avon was used beginning in 1929. It's still in business and sells beauty and personal care products, jewelry, and other items. The 1876 Cape Cod Collection was made for Avon by Wheaton Glass Company from 1975 to 1993. According to Avon, the design was inspired by Roman Rosette, an early Sandwich glass pattern, and the name commemorates the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial, the 100th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence, and Cape Cod, where Sandwich glass originated. The dark red glass was made from a special formula made for that pattern. Tall candlesticks and cruets were made the first year. Some pieces were packed with Avon products or filled with Avon cologne, bath oil or bubble bath. A few new pieces were introduced each year, while others were discontinued. Dinner plates sell for $15 to $30, a cup and saucer for $6 to $15. Q: I have a very big Westmoreland punch bowl in the paneled grape pattern that has some stress cracks in the bottom. Is there any way to repair it or should I just hunt for a replacement? A: If you plan to use the punch bowl, you should look for a replacement or take it to a specialist in glass repair. Then you won't have to worry about a future leak. A similar punch bowl would cost about $150. Q: I am a niece of Viktor Schreckengost and have unearthed some packedaway items of his, as well as a painting that was in my mother's attic. What is my best course to follow in getting values and any market for these items that I am not interested in keeping for myself? A: As you know, your uncle was a very famous artist and industrial designer. Viktor Schreckengost (1906-2008) was a painter, potter and industrial designer. He created modern dinnerware for American Limoges Co., trucks for White Motor Company, bicycles, pedal cars and toys for Murray, furniture, lawn mowers, golf carts, artificial limbs and more. His most famous piece is the Jazz Bowl, a turquoise and blue punch bowl with art deco designs of New York City. He didn't know it was for Eleanor Roosevelt when he designed it. She and President Roosevelt liked it so much she bought two more bowls. Your uncle is so famous his artwork sells well an any auction or top gallery, but his prints, toys, pedal toys and special plates and sculptures sell best in his hometown. If you have a lot of things to auction, you should negotiate the charges. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

The ITC offers uniquely designed programs to meet the specific needs of the children it attracts, he added. The organization assists youth at risk and those with special needs such as Down Syndrome and autism while welcoming children of new immigrants from Russia and Ethiopia. The ITC also fosters coexistence by bringing together Israeli Jews, Arabs, Bedouins and Druze to play and learn while training them to excel as tennis players. These programs are open to all children living in Israel regardless of background, religious affiliation or economic circumstance. No child is ever turned away. Mr. Yair said the March 9 event at Wycliffe Golf & Country Club Stadium Resort will feature an exhibition of tennis prowess as well as testimonies from a small contingent of players who have gone through the ITCs programs. For example, we have a girl who will share a first-hand report about her experience and how it has impacted her life, he said. We also have a 20-yearold boy who is part of the high-performance program at the ITC for those who get to its top level. A few months ago he got a full scholarship to study at the University of Nevada. Also present at the exhibition will be Andy Ram, perhaps the ITCs most celebrated participant, who is a threetime Grand Slam doubles champion. Andy had a dream to be the best tennis player in the world, Mr. Yair said. Through the years he has represented Israel in the Davis Cup, the U.S. Open, Wimbledon and the French Open. He will demonstrate his tennis skills and speak about his experience of growing up as a boy achieving his dream and serving as an ambassador around the world for the ITC. Mr. Ross and Mr. Yair said the March 9 event will serve as a way to raise awareness about the ITC, as well as a fundraiser for the organization to continue its efforts. Although our event wont be open to the public, we want more people to understand what the ITC is doing, Mr. Ross said. We want to get as many as possible on the bandwagon to help subsidize this fantastic group.For more information about the ITC, log on to www.israeltenniscenters.org. TENNISFrom page 1

ArtFest by the Sea: Still amazing after all these years BY JANIS FONTAINE pbnews@ oridaweekly.comFor 30 years a sparkling stretch of the famed beach road A1A has been converted into an open-air gallery for one weekend each spring. And lucky you, its this weekend! ArtFest by the Sea is the kind of venue youd see in a romantic movie: Imagine your favorite actress strolling beneath swaying royal palms, the teal-blue ocean alive just beyond a stand of sea grape, hand-in-hand with her latest love, bu ying a painting or a sculpture as a memento of a remarkable, fairy-tale day. The crash of the waves, the smell of sweat mixed with sunscreen, the random snippets of pleasant conversation, all pale beside the beauty of the art on display. More than 300 carefully chosen top-shelf talents bring their best work out for this show. Youll find jewelry and sculpture, painting and wood, glass and clothing, a plethora of incredible materials ingeniously manipulated into one-of-a-kind pieces you can wear, display or use. ITS LIKELY THAT PEOPLE INVOLVED WITH the Maltz Jupiter Theatres upcoming production of South Pacific know that cynics will question why mount yet one more production of this classic. After all, the 1949 musical has been produced over and over and over again in South Florida, let alone the rest of the country, not to mention the brilliant 2008 Bartlett Sher revival at Lincoln Center that is still touring the country.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY presents Jason Bishop performs stunning & original state-of-the-art magic. Intelligent lighting, countless costume changes by his assistant Kim, and Bishops quick wit and engaging audience participation make each performance unforgettable. Appropriate for families with children ages 3 100. COLLECTORS CORNER A pocket doll offers more than a pocketful of memories scott SIMMONS email@example.com Its never easy breaking up a house. I can imagine how Grandpa Bolender must have felt in 1951 as family members and estate liquidators came to the family home in Connersville, Indiana, to disperse the mementoes of a lifetime. Grandma Bolender had died two years before at 58 and, in many ways, the family still was reeling in shock at her sudden passing. Still, there was happiness amid the trauma. My mothers girlhood friend, Ann Bryant, asked her mother to buy a chair from the living room of my great-grandparents house shed sat in it many an afternoon listening to Grandpa playing the piano. It now sits in her Louisville living room, where it continues to comfort her grandchildren. Another Ann Ann Barlow whose family lived in an apartment that was created from the second floor of the house, came downstairs with something for my mother. When my grandfathers cousins, Kathryn and Sue, moved away, they gave Ann Barlow some of their old toys. Among the objects was a trio of petite pocket dolls. The porcelain bisque dolls stood about 3 inches tall, had flapper bobs and were dressed in frocks of silk and cotton, clearly stitched by Kathryn and Sue. Ann thought the little dolls should stay in the family, and so they did. I think of Ann Barlow, and my grandfathers cousins whenever I see little dolls such as those. In the family movies, teenage Ann Barlow models an evening gown and curtsies for the camera. Cousins KathBought: From a private individual. Paid: $25 The Skinny: The family of the child who first owned this doll, made sometime between the early 1920s and mid-1930s in Germany, literally would have paid pennies for the doll. Standing about 3 inches tall, the dolls were created as pocket dolls for little girls to carry around with them think of the Polly Pockets marketed to little girls today. This doll wears her original satin dress and a felt cloche hat. I love the red highheeled shoes that are painted on her feet. She clearly had style back in the day.A couple of showsStuart Antique Show March 10-11, Martin County Fairgrounds, 2616 SE Dixie Highway, Stuart.

THE FIND:A German bisque flapper dollA German bisque flapper doll dates from the 1920s or s. She is joined with wire at her shoulders and hips. She pictured much larger than her actual 3-inch height. SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis trio of dolls had belonged to my grandfathers cousins. They were given to my mother when she was a girl and they now are part of her doll collection. ryn and Sue, who were little girls at the time, model hairdos similar to the dolls and wave to us from across the years. Our family lost touch with the Barlows in the s. Cousin Kathryn married, had two children and is remembered with affection. Sue had a secretarial career before retiring to Floridas west coast. She will turn 90 this summer. As for the trio of little dolls, my mother has them now, and theyre proudly displayed among her collections, seemingly forever young.

Putnam. 336 pages. Hardcover, $27.The champ is at it again. Its No. 25 in the Doc Ford series, and Randy Wayne White is in high gear. This one takes us to the Bahamas, especially Andros Island, which is larger than all the other inhabited Bahamian islands put together. For Doc, the trip is part getaway and part help out a friend not always a good way to relax. His Sanibel hippy-dippy neighbor and part-time genius Tomlinson is not far away, helping Doc engage with Carl Fitzgerald. A friend of both men, Carl is addicted to the potentially enormous payoffs of finding sunken treasure. Carl is in trouble for breaking regulations of the Florida Division of Historical Resources. The agencys director, Leonard Nickelby, is on his case. As it turns out, events fulfill Carls favorite maxim: The first rule of treasure hunting is to trust no one. Not even a government agent. As ever, Doc will turn out to be the exception to the rule, even as he realizes hes being manipulated so that others might profit if they survive. Somehow, Leonard (alternately Leo and other derivatives) goes off the charts, and along with him are a young boy and a hard-used, admittedly ugly but astoundingly smart woman named Lydia. If there ever were a woman who invited abuse, its Lydia. But shes also a survivor and a shrewd manipulator in her own right. Whats at stake? Rare Spanish coins, Carls logbook about uncharted wreck sites, and everyones life. There are plenty of beasts out there to contend with, but the human breed is the worst. This includes the once successful moviemaker Efron Donner, who has captured Leonard, Lydia and the boy. Donner is one of the authors most despicable villains, though he has a lot of competition in this regard. Watching Lydia play him is a readers delight. Oddly, Lydia brings out the best in Leonard, who has some unexpectedly heroic moments along with the predictable foolish ones. Among other things, he is a nerd reborn in the sensory delights of the Caribbean This high-energy romp lives less in its plot than in its varied characters and attractive vistas. Tomlinson is a classic foil to the more sober-sided Doc, always ready to medicate and philosophize. Women adore him, though its not always easy to figure out why. A possible romantic interest for Doc, whos contemplating the future of his uncertain relationship with Hannah Smith, is a remarkable young woman named Tamara. Mr. White makes seaworthy craft and seaworthy people subjects of interest and honor. Readers will admire those who have mastered seamanship and will get a kick out of the many state-of-theart gadgets that adorn boats of all kinds. The sights and smells of island neighborhoods, the music and reverie, the camaraderie and even the intoxication of perceived chicanery make for pleasant daydreams. But through Doc, the author reminds us theres a time to wake up, perhaps to pay up. This is a great read for self-confessed Randy Wayne White fans like myself, and also a fine introduction for those who have so far somehow avoided the joys of experiencing his books. The ending? Its a stunner. Aside from all those bestselling Doc Ford novels, Mr. White has also published four collections of his columns for Outside magazine and elsewhere, and four titles in his Hannah Smith series, the most recent being Seduced. A onehour documentary film called The Gift of the Game, about Mr. Whites trip to Cuba to find the remnants of the Little League teams founded by Ernest Hemingway in the days before Castro, won the Best of the Fest award from the 2002 Woods Hole Film Festival and was broadcast by PBS the following year. A veteran fishing guide who at one time had his own local PBS show, Mr. White lives on Sanibel Island. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B11 presents An upbeat, musical journey of Americas greatest songs of the 60s including songs he performed as a lead singer of the famous New Christy Minstrels. LATEST FILMSThe PartyIs it worth $10? NoThe Party is a confused movie that tries to be about many things and is effectively about none. At 71 minutes its too brief to take on themes such as infidelity, health care, female empowerment and gay relationships with any kind of substance, and yet it touches on all those hot-b utton topics in a way that feels perfunctory rather than meaningful. The drama is presented in black and white, which is a terrible idea for two reasons: 1) It will hinder the films box office prospects, and more importantly 2) The story is anything but black and white, anything but something that can lead to a definitive yes or no and right or wrong. Perhaps director Sally Potter intended to provide an omnipresent gray area for the characters to inhabit, but you cant help but think a wide variety of colors would have reflected the story better given the myriad issues presented. The actors do what they can with the material. Kristen Scott-Thomas (Darkest Hour) plays the adulterous Janet, who was just elected to be Great Britains Minister of Health. Shes unhappily married to Bill (Timothy Spall), who is a heavy drinker and depressed. Theyre hosting a dinner party. If you think the marriage sounds dysfunctional, wait until you meet their friends. April (Patricia Clarkson) and Gottfried (Bruno Ganz) are the first to arrive. He looks much older, theyre dating and she apparently hates him, but thats not a surprise because she seems to hate everyone and everything. Shes so tart-tongued and cynical that the idea of a filter would only inspire more invectives. Gottfried, on the other hand, is a peaceful healer who is not fond of modern medicine. Why they are together is never explained. Also joining the party are the couple Martha (Cherry Jones) and Jinny (Emily Mortimer), as well as Tom (Cillian Murphy), the husband of Janets co-worker. Throughout, you wonder why these seven people are friends. They dont seem to hold one another in high regard or enjoy one anothers company. In fact, its just the opposite. This is the worlds worst dinner party that never even gets to the dinner. If the film is intended to be a critique of the current sociopolitical climate in Great Britain, the local commentary is lost on this Yank. Many of the themes, aside from a few lines about British health care, are universal rather than specifically British, but thats not really the problem. The larger issue is that theyre so hastily developed that they fail to register, as if Potter (who also wrote the script) had a checklist of social faux pas to address and was determined to cram them all in. But you cant do that with this little character development and this quick a pace, not to mention there are no likeable characters. As shot on a four-room set in a West London studio, the film feels more like it belongs on stage rather than the big screen. And perhaps on stage the drama will play better, scenes will be added and it will work. But right now it doesnt work at all. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> The lm was shot in largely chronological order in two weeks; all seven actors earned the same amount.Did you know? PUZZLE ANSWERS
B12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYseveral answers. First is the Richard Rodgers-Oscar Hammerstein II shows persisting relevance in 2018 the themes of a society divided by subtle unspoken racial prejudice and a sense of a world on the brink of violence, both setting a background for a love story among disparate people. When youre dancing on the edge of abyss, you have to get along. All the petty things that separate now seem small and ridiculous, Greenberg said. Its incredibly still so applicable; its that The more things change the more things stay the same. This show exemplifies that. Another reason is its unsurpassed quality, Mr. Greenberg said. More than anything its a gorgeous, gorgeous score and the characters are so vibrant. You look at the old warhorse that has been around forever and know why it is regularly revived. When I started working on this show, I was surprised how well its written. Every line, every stage direction is so right, theres nothing you have to do to make it work, Ms. Davie said. The director added, When you get to steep yourself in something structurally as genius as this, its a rare pleasure and honor and a beautiful place to live both musically and poetically. Mr. Greenberg, who directed Barnum at the Maltz in 2009, has a history of bringing a freshness to familiar musicals, most notably a production of Guys and Dolls in London. The Maltz has a tradition of reinventing classic shows like Marcia Milgrom Dodges Gypsy and Hello, Dolly! without deconstructing them. His goal is much like it was for Guys and Dolls: It is with a very specific goal of reinvigorating the piece, he said. This production plans to zero in on the wartime zeitgeist of mortality staring you in the face, and falling in love. You know you could die at any moment and your time becomes amplified, Mr. Greenberg said. For Mr. Greenberg, there are a couple of personal pluses: I have a deep respect and affection for (the Maltzs producing artistic director) Andrew Kato, who I came of age with in New York, he said. And, he said with a laugh, my parents live down the road in Palm Beach Gardens. While many patrons may bring memories of Mary Martin or Kelli OHara as Nellie or the visuals of the 1958 film version, Mr. Greenberg isnt worried about interfering comparisons. Some people come in with a sense of nostalgia. But we rarely remember the actual event; we always remember how it made us feel. It helps that he has the Maltzs fabled resources, including a superb creative team and a large orchestra to caress a score that includes Some Enchanted Evening and This Nearly Was Mine. But he is especially impressed with the acting corps: Something really special resonates. Ive never been in a rehearsal where theres such a spark and a champagne fizz in the air. Others in the cast include Nicholas Rodriguez, who recently completed the national tour of The Sound of Music, as Emile DeBeque, and Stephen Mark Lukas (The Book of Mormon on Broadway and on the national tour) as Lt. Cable. But the actor he enthuses over is Davie, who played Yvonne/Naomi in Sunday in the Park with George in the 2017 Broadway revival, Violet Hilton in the recent Broadway revival of Side Show and Young Little Edie in Grey Gardens (Theatre World Award for Outstanding Broadway Debut). She is a huge Broadway performer. More than the fact that she is beautiful and has a glorious singing voice, she is an actress with a fragility and sense of immediate danger, Mr. Greenberg said. She is always in the moment. She is equally pleased with an unusual comity in a cast. I was really impressed with this cast. They are so good, honestly every cast member is and brings a different energy. Chemistry between the leads is crucial, so it helps that she and Mr. Rodriguez have known each other for years hes her boyfriends best friend. You dont have to learn each other. You dont have to have small talk. You already have a kind of chemistry. Shes not worried about the score or the lines. Her main worries? Washing my hair on stage and wearing a bathing suit on stage. Mr. Greenberg, who has helmed acclaimed productions in the United States and Europe, had a daunting experience with the work that almost ensured hed never do it again. When he was 10 years old, his mother auditioned to be Nellie in a production at their synagogue in Rockland County, New York. She didnt get the part and settled to be one of the nurses in the ensemble. The budding child thespian agreed to be in the ensemble in the background. But on opening night, they gave the boy playing Jerome (Emiles son) a toy boat. I was so red with envy, I said to myself I will never be in a chorus again, he said. After that experience, Mr. Greenberg had little to do with the show before now. Coming to it relatively fresh, he was surprised. I had no idea this show was this gripping, this moving, and enlightening. So what Im trying to do is shine a light from inside. SHOWFrom page 1librarian.

While the boat show beckons, take the party to Currie Park, where the Palm Beach Post Spring Break Concert and a Spring Break Farmers Market will be held. The concert takes place 4-7 p.m. March 18, to fill the spot that everyones favorite Sunday jam, Sunday on the Waterfront, normally happens. And whats more perfect for a Spring Break fling than a tribute to favorite son Jimmy Buffett with Caribbean Chillers? Then, a special Spring Break Farmers Market will be held March 24, since the West Palm Beach GreenMarket will be pre-empted by the boat show. The Farmers Market will be open 9 a.m.-1 p.m. and will have more than 30 vendors with greenmarket staples like local produce, plants and flowers, baked goods and gourmet foods, and even live music and free activities for kids. Currie Park is along the Intracoastal Waterway at 2400 N. Flagler Drive, not quite two miles north of the GreenMarkets location. For more information, visit www.wpb.org/events.Sunday conversationThe Palm Beach Fellowship of Christians & Jews brings people from every demographic together to strengthen the community. The fellowship was founded in 1993 by a handful of Palm Beach residents who were determined to take aim at intolerance and discrimination. All ages, faiths, backgrounds, and creeds are welcomed to its Sunday Conversations which encourage discussion and dialogue and welcome presentations of alternate views. To celebrate its 25th anniversary season, the fellowship is offering a variety of programs with the theme Seeking Common Ground. At 4 p.m. March 18, Deborah Pollack, a Palm Beach art historian, dealer and speaker, will present Beauty and a Couple of Beasts, the backstories of animals in the arts in the Palm Beaches, as well as two-legged beasts in crime. The program takes place in the Royal Poinciana Chapels Fellowship Hall, 60 Cocoanut Row, Palm Beach. Admission is free for members and $10 for nonmembers, payable at the door, but an RSVP is requested at 561833-6150 or email email@example.com.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 8-14, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15 Places for sunset drinks and appsA trio worth noting3JANSTHREE FOR2 ROXYS PUB AND ROOFTOP BAR309 Clematis St., West Palm Beach. 561-296-7699; www.roxyspub.com. How can you go wrong at a pub thats been around since 1933? Their Rooftop Bar Sky 309 may be newer, but the locals vibe is still here. With 64 beers on tap and a huge selection of spirits, you can toast the end of a day overlooking the downtown and spread of West Palm Beach in good taste. Their wings and burgers also are notable. 1 SAILFISH MARINA598 Lake Drive, Palm Beach Shores, Singer Island. 561-844-1724; www.sailfishmarina. com. Get a drink at the bar, and get a grouper dog from the marinas dockside booth, then take in the spectacular view of the marina and Peanut Island across the water as the sun hits the horizon. Go on Thursday nights to shop the weekly indie arts and jewelry exhibitors who line the waterfront. 3 BENNYS ON THE BEACH10 S. Ocean Blvd., Lake Worth (on Lake Worth Pier). 561-582-9001; www.bennysonthebeach.com. We know: The ocean is east. However, theres something calming that happens here as the sun goes down: The water changes color along with the sky, and the frantic antics of beachgoers wind down as they pack up and leave the shore to a few beachcombers and fishing diehards. Drinks and seafood on the deck are worth the parking fee along with the scenery. Jan Norris FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINECucina Cabana opens in Barolo space at Crystal Tree janNORRISjan@jannorris.com What do you get when an interior designer of restaurants opens his own Italian supper club/cabana? Cucina Cabana in North Palm Beach is the result. A highly stylized space in blacks and whites, glass and mirrors, with what will be five different experiences for the guest, according to Aldo Conigliaro, owner. He greets every guest as he does me at the restaurant, in a fedora and threepiece striped suit. Lest you think its for show, consider his general manager and host are dressed formally for service as well though its 10 a.m. and the restaurant wont open for hours. The 6,500-square-foot space was the site of Barolo, another, smaller Italian. Mr. Conigliaro has added on and opened the spaces to five unique rooms: the dining room, the supper club piano bar and lounge, the cabana patio outdoors, a salume room with antipasto and salumes, and a soon-to-be cigar and vintage wine room out back. Theres also a space that can be closed off to make a private dining area. Diners choose where theyd like to eat. When you walk in here, you get a tour of the restaurant. Youre treated as a five-star guest. Everyone who comes in gets the same treatment. My whole concept was to create an experience for the guests. Its a friendly, home-like place to relax and have dinner, or let their hair down, he said. Diners can opt to have a few cocktails and dance tables are pushed aside to make room for the couples. This is the true meaning of a supper club. Local favorite pianist Ray Chang entertains Thursday-Saturdays, while crooners Bobby Francesca and Franco Corso sing other nights. The supper club has an appeal for local diners, he says. To help bring them to the restaurant, he is buying a sixpassenger open car to take them safely to their homes in Old Port Cove nearby or to the Water Club on U.S. 1. We dont want our guests to have to walk across that busy highway, he said. The diners favor the Italian specialties, products of his own heritage. Theyd better be good, he says, and laughs: My dear mom, 96 years young, checks them out. Steaks and chops are on the menu, but favorites are eggplant rollatini, chicken parmesan, the veal chop, and our chef has a special way with branzino they love. The pasta bolognese is another often requested dish. But, he said, we didnt want to be just another Italian restaurant, so we have Continental dishes on the menu, and some French as well. Wines lean to the Italians, but Napa cabernets and other domestics are on the list. Pricing is moderate, and guests appr ove, he s aid. They let us know. Right now, the restaurant is open daily at 4 p.m. for happy hour, and on Sundays for brunch a new service. Mr. Conigliaro is ready to go full steam, and doesnt fear summers downturn. Im not in the restaurant business. Im in the hospitality business. I dont know how the owners of the flop-anddrops thats what I call the restaurants where you go in, order, the server drops the food and you pay and leave can say theyre in the hospitality business. Theres no hospitality. I want this to be an experience and everyone to have a good time. You go out to dinner, and get entertainment and its a whole experience. Were the niche thats missing. Cucina Cabana is at Crystal Tree Plaza, 1201 U.S. Highway 1 N., North Palm Beach. Phone 561-626-1616, or online at www.cucinacabanaristorante. com. Open for dinner seven days, and Sunday brunch.In briefA Caribbean-themed outdoor marketplace replaces the green market at the Riviera Beach Marina. TikiMarket will be open Sunday afternoons, 4-7 p.m. Scott Evans, the Riviera Beach Community Redevelopment Agency director, said, We wanted to connect our green market to what surrounds us along the waters and in the city the Caribbean, and especially the Bahamas. The citys earliest settlers were from the Bahamas, who came here to work in our huge fishing industry at the time. Many of their descendants still live here. So, the TikiMarkets island vibe makes sense. Its authentic. Expect vendors selling prepared foods and merchandise, and a DJ who will play Bahamian music. The Butcher Shop in downtown West Palm Beach is the first to announce its buckets o beer for March Madness games, but look for all the sports bars to have bar specials as they bring in extra TVs for the playoffs leading to the Final Four games. Tune in next week and well tell you all about St. Pats Day events. SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYTHE DISH: Highlights from local menus The Dish: Southern-Style Shrimp & Grits The Place: Seasons 52, 11611 Ellison Wilson Road, Palm Beach Gardens; 561-625-5852 or www.seasons52.com. The Price: $19.95. The Details: This is a favorite dish of mine. Alas, so many places do not get it right. Fortunately, Seasons 52 does a nice job with this. Tender shrimp are tossed in a sauce of roasted tomato and red bell pepper. Chorizo and bacon lend an earthy touch to the seafood, which was served atop creamy cheddar grits. Scott Simmons JAN NORRIS/FLORIDA WEEKLYGuests at Cucina Cabana are treated like five-star guests, says the owner, Aldo Conigliaro.SHUTTERSTOCK Sit outside and enjoy the view of the palms silhouetted against the sunset.
