Congress Ave. | Atlantis, FL 33462 | COMMENTARY Bigger than we thoughtGeorge Washington and the pledge of allegiance and James Madisons wife, Dolly he invented the First and Second Amendments, she invented ice cream, and you chased down the ice cream truck no matter how long it took. Your hand clasped in your mothers on the way to kindergarten, the fall apples you snatched from trees and the hills you rolled down on the way home. The Halloweens that came with kind neighbors, the rabbits and grouse you shot and the cook-stove wood fires your grandmother built to roast them or fry them, and how you realized: Love was bigger than you thought. How much can you remember of your childhood? Your mother singing you to sleep with old cowboy songs, your father teaching you to shoot, to throw footballs and catch them, to box and think and read about the universe, about science and religion and government, about equal rights, about how to smell deer or track them. You touching an older girls breast and your father taking you out in the woods to talk about life and sex and respect. You realizing, though mortified, love was bigger than you thought. Johnny Unitas throwing touchdown passes to Lenny Moore and Raymond Berry. Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris hitting homeruns. Rocky Marciano and Carmen Basilio and Muhammad Ali throwing punches. The sound of radio baseball on a summer night coming in scratchy from cities hundreds of miles away. Eleanor Roosevelt and Jim Bridger and the Blackfoot and Apaches and Birgit Nilsson singing Aida at the old Met when your Dad and Mom took you to New York City. And Hawkeye and Chingachgook and Cooperstown and the steps of the Washington Monument open all the way to the top. The dreadful sound of your sisters beginning violin floating out the window on a summer afternoon. How you realized: Love was bigger than you thought, and it might sound uglier, too. Your best friend smiling all the time when he got his nose broken, his leg broken, his arm broken, when he got a concussion, when he got cornered by a cop and asked if hed started a fire because the two of you snuck into a burning school building, belly crawling down the hall below the smoke to see what it was like. How angry your father was later. The time the nuns stole your bicycles because youd sneaked into the girls reform school, climbed up and then slid down the five-story silo fire escape several times, leaving the bikes unlocked outside. How your father tried not to laugh later. How you realized, love was bigger than you thought. Those troubling, tidy-white slave quarters behind the big houses at Mount Vernon and Monticello, when your parents took you there. The Mexican field workers who threw you cantaloupes over a farm fence on an August afternoon with the temperature north of 95, and your section crew on the Union Pacific railroad was running out of water. How you realized, love was bigger than you thought. The sudden mountain silence at the Jackson Place at noon, when cowboys secured their horses and rested themselves outside the corrals to eat the big dinner an aunt delivered over miles of rough road meat, potatoes, vegetables, rolls, pies, tea. And you realized, love was bigger than you thought. The rich musk of old books at the Eugene Field library where the author of Wynken, Blynken & Nod once lived, the man who said, No book can be appreciated until it has been slept in and dreamed over. The Ute arrowheads you found after every hard rain on Flint Hill above your grandfathers homestead. And Robert F. Kennedy, who appeared alone on the sidewalk by your parents stalled car, hands shoved in his pockets, suit jacket open, staring down and brooding as he walked up Fifth Avenue, in New York. Or maybe it was Broadway. The happy sight of your family friends, Anne Aire, her husband, Dennis Small, and their children, Skip and Mark. She was a French immigrant and white, he was an American school principle and black, and the kids were white and black, which meant nothing to you then several years before the 1964 Civil Rights Act. The flavor of your first girlfriend when she kissed you on a moon-soaked bridge, salty and sweet and strange, only half pleasant but wholly compelling the first time youd ever tasted another human being, the first time you knew what love might actually feel like. And you realized again, love is bigger than you thought. Do your memories sew themselves into the fabric of a rich life, becoming friends and counselors even if they arent all benign? And none can be. Remembering lately, Ive realized: Its the names, not the memories that sadden me now in the spring of 2018 the names speaking in their own mute horror. Name after name after name after name scrawled on Florida bricks and stones after Parkland as I mentioned last week, and scrawled in front of the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., again, by high school students, during the March for Our Lives. They call it, Collateral Damage. Exactly 679 names, victims whose remembering has been stolen. Each memory would have been an American catalogue of childhood, both unique and common like mine or yours, and unaccountably rich. But all are now gone, only chalk on a sidewalk, once-upon-atime kids killed by gunmen in American schools between April 20, 1999, and February 14, this year. And now were going to let that happen again. Unless. Unless we can enter a voting booth, we can pause momentarily as a people, and we can remember: Love is bigger than we thought. roger

We can reduce the carnageIts been about six weeks since 17 people died in the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, five months since 26 died in the Texas church shooting, six months since 58 died in the Las Vegas shooting, almost two years since 49 died in the Pulse nightclub shooting, more than two years since 14 died in the San Bernardino shooting, almost three years since nine died in the Charleston church shooting, more than five years since 25 died in the Sandy Hook school shooting, 11 years since 32 died in the Virginia Tech shooting, and 19 years since 13 died in the Columbine High School shooting. So whats been done? Major stores have raised the gun-buying age and some states have strengthened gun controls.Florida now bans gun sales to those under 21; makes purchasers wait three days; funds school mental health programs; restricts possession by violent or mentally ill people; and prohibits bump stocks, which convert semi-automatic rifles to automatic. But it also allows a problematic plan to arm school personnel.President Trump has pursued an administrative bar on bump stocks and proposed other measures, albeit minor yet so far congressional movement has been inconsequential. Theres been progress but we need more. Gun control has many facets, including mental health, background checks, site security and weapons availability, and numerous ideas urge us what to do. By now we should know them. Tweaking laws isnt enough. While permitting responsible people to have guns for sports or safety, we need significant national reforms: banning assault rifles except for military and police use, reducing magazine capacities, background checks for all buyers, denying guns to anyone on a terrorist list or with a violence-prone mental illness, better law enforcement work; stronger security at schools and elsewhere, and improved mental health awareness. The real question isnt knowing what to do. Its whether we will do it. In theory, that should be easy, as polls show 67 percent of people want to ban assault rifle sales and 97 percent support universal background checks. But in practice, too many politicians fear retribution by the extremist National Rifle Association. The NRA, which doesnt reflect the general public or most gun owners (who favor regulation), sees gun control activists as its implacable foes. On that, its right. Proponents of effective gun control are, and should be, unremitting foes of the NRAs life-threatening agenda. They must battle the NRA as relentlessly as that firearms lobby promotes widespread gun sales and carrying. They must defeat politicians who appease the NRA, choosing to protect their careers rather than public safety. They must prove as thousands of students are proving that those who demand controls are just as committed, passionate and strong, or more so, as those who wallow in an atavistic gun culture. We will never stop all gun violence. But that doesnt mean we cannot lessen the carnage. We can prevail. As French writer Albert Camus assured us: Perhaps we cannot prevent this world from being a world in which children are tortured. But we can reduce the number of tortured children. That reduction must be made. Roger Buckwalter of Tequesta is a retired editorial page editor of The Jupiter Courier.

OPINIONIf Hillary had wonThe death of astrophysicist Stephen Hawking brings to mind Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. How weird is that? But bear with me. Hawking credibly speculated about a parallel universe on the other side of a black hole. What if, in that alternative existence, Hillary Clinton had won the 2016 presidential election? How, in that black hole that is U.S. politics, would she be doing as president? In a word, badly. She wouldnt be the disgrace that Donald Trump is theres no way anyone can match his bigotry, hateful appeals to our worst instincts or his simple-minded impetuousness. In fact, Hillary and impetuous would make up a classic oxymoron. While President Trump is moronically careless, Hillary is methodically calculating, or at least appears that way, which is even worse. As a result, she squanders her advantages, like her formidable brainpower, because shes missing the lobe that processes empathy impulses the real ones, not the artificial contrivances concocted by her sycophantic consultants. By now, she would have frittered away much of her hugely historic significance as the nations first woman chief executive. It would have dissipated, overridden by the personal flaws that have come to define Hillary Clinton. Her careful dissembling would be easy prey for Republicans, always ready to pounce. Her perceived sense of superiority and that of the people who flit around her soon would antagonize just about all us unworthies. Hillary Clinton provides an object lesson for those trying to grasp what a candidate should not be. Her recent appearance in India is a case in point. She offered the analysis that she had beaten Trump in places populated by those who are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward as opposed to those who are backward, riffraff in her mind, who were driven away by the elitist sense of entitlement that she exudes. Her arrogant, meritocratic view of the deplorables doesnt compare with Trumps vile demagogic manipulation of their fears and prejudices, but the condescension openly displayed by Hillary and so many of her supporters for all who dont share their phony values is almost as divisive. Add to that Hillarys long coziness with the richest of the rich, and it would stoke the same resentments that Trump has been able to exploit to his advantage. He is a master at convincing the little people that hes on their side at the same time that he symbolizes the worst excesses of conspicuous consumption and an entirely selfish life. Both are phonies, but also polar opposites. One huge difference: Trump is entertaining, grossly so. And his slapstick collection of supporting actors is a laugh a minute. Clinton as president would bore us to death. Where The Donald mindlessly stomps through issues, Hillary takes carefully thought-out baby steps. Its preferable for policymaking but stifles any passion. Wed be desperate for excitement, even some misstep from that other President Clinton, whose time as POTUS was certainly, uh, interesting. For now, were stuck in our Trump black hole. Still, as Stephen Hawking argued, Things can get out of a black hole, both to the outside, and possibly, to another universe. The problem is, that other universe is not all that appealing either. Or maybe this is the alternative universe.

Thats the gist of A Journey Through the Human Brain, the $2.4 million, 2,500-squarefoot exhibition it plans to open early next year. The science center says Journey will be the nations most advanced exhibit on the brain. It will take a bottomup approach to telling the story of the human brain, from the molecular and cellular level to the integrated circuitry that creates emotions and memories. When I first got here, the South Florida Science Center had no curb appeal, Lew Crampton, the museums president and CEO, said during a ceremony to announce a $900,000 lead gift from the Quantum Foundation. Nobody was coming here, and it was a dark and dingy place with lots of feathers and claws and things you could look at and lots of text on the wall that you could get up close to and read. Much of that has changed over the eight years since Mr. Crampton came onboard. The science centers dated faade has been overhauled and is light and bright. A large space filled with fish and other marine life gives it that second part of its name aquarium. Its creating the exhibition in partnership with the Quantum Foundation, Max Planck Institute for Neuroscience, Scripps Research Institute of Florida, the Stiles-Nicholson Foundation, which contributed $750,000, and Palm Healthcare Foundation. A Journey Through the Human Brain will comprise a new west wing of the science center and will include four galleries. According to the science center, the Introductory Gallery emphasizes the theme of the exhibit and will feature a walk-through brain mist and 3D brain projection. An immersive Brain Room will show how much activity goes on in the brain each second, while the Thoughts and Emotion gallery will show how much effort the brain goes through to lie. The Senses Gallery will allow visitors to explore sight, taste, smell, hearing and touch. A Brain Bar will host experts who can share their knowledge with guests and demonstrate high-tech and cutting-edge virtual reality technologies used to visualize brain structure and function. The ASCEND program at the FAU Brain Institute will provide neuroscience academic guidance for the exhibit. The science center says it has raised $2.2 million toward its final goal of $2.4 million for the project. For more information, visit www. or call 561-832-1988.

Cade, while at the University of Florida, did extensive clinical trials utilizing a special formula he developed containing soluble ber (acacia gum). This formula, CholesterAde, proved to lower cholesterol in human blood by over 17% during an 8-week period. Not only is this special soluble ber proven to lower cholesterol naturally, but other positive effects showed weight loss and improved bowel function, which can help reduce the chances of many forms of cancer.

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

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

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationPet lovers across the country were horrified and angry last month after a United Airlines flight attendant placed a carrier containing a French bulldog puppy named Kokito into the overhead storage bin over the owners protests. By the end of the three-hour flight, Kokito was dead from lack of oxygen. In this case, a language barrier complicated the situation, with the flight attendant not hearing, misunderstanding or ignoring the owners statement that a pet was in the bag. United has taken responsibility for the dogs death and refunded the passengers ticket costs including the hefty pet fee. Starting this month, it will place bright yellow tags on pet carriers to alert flight attendants to four-legged occupants. Its not yet known if the owners will seek additional damages, if the flight attendant will be fired or if criminal charges will be filed. In the aftermath, Sens. John Kennedy of Louisiana and Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada introduced the Welfare of Our Furry Friends Act, or WOOFF, to create regulations to protect future air-traveling pets from improper stowage. But as all pet lovers know, no amount of compensation, punishment of the perpetrator or legislation can make up for the loss of a dogs life, especially under circumstances that should never have happened in the first place. Its unlikely that this exact scenario will ever be repeated, but there may be other instances in which a pets life is put at risk during travel. What can a dog or cat owner traveling by air do to either avoid or deal with a similar situation? Be prepared. Know what size pet carrier is permitted on board. Measure yours to make sure it meets the requirements, and bring a copy of the airlines rules with you in case of a dispute. When choosing seats, some people prefer the aisle because its easier to get in and out of the seat with the carrier, but there is also more risk that the service cart will run into it or people walking by will accidentally kick it. A CNBC news story reported that Kokitos carrier was slightly protruding into the aisle, prompting the flight attendants demand that it be placed in the overhead space. It may be safer, more comfortable and less stressful for your pet if you are in a middle or window seat. Remain calm and polite, but advocate for your pet if a flight attendant asks you to do something that you feel endangers your animal. The Federal Aviation Administration says passengers must follow flight attendant instructions regarding proper stowage of pet carriers. Pet carriers go beneath the seat in front of you, never in the overhead compartment. Ask to speak to the purser or chief flight attendant if there is disagreement. If you see something, say something, even if its not your pet. Its OK to express concern to authority when you witness something that appears unsafe. Again, ask to speak to the purser if you arent satisfied with the response. Whether you are an onlooker or the owner, record the incident on your smartphone or ask someone else to do so. For your pets safety and comfort, as well as for that of other passengers, keep him inside the carrier. This prevents accidental escapes or negative interactions with other passengers or flight attendants. Finally, some people have criticized Kokitos owner for complying. That is wrong. We have all seen news stories of people removed, sometimes forcibly, from flights when they refused to comply with a flight attendants direction. Flight attendants have full authority on flights, and questioning one can be intimidating, especially if English is not a passengers first language.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY HEALTHY LIVINGDealing with narcissism disorderAs her husband, Adam, approached with a dark, menacing look on his face, Leslie knew she was in for it. Dont you ever humiliate me that way again, or youll be sorry. Before Leslie could answer, Adam continued screaming. You knew your friend Rob was going to be at the party. How could you subject me to his pompous bragging? Leslie was dumbstruck. Although wildly successful, Rob was the most modest, considerate person Leslie knew. But, now, Adam was escalating. You always look for an opportunity to upset me. Even though Leslie knew she had done nothing wrong, she started to apologize like she always did just to keep the peace. Adam, calm down. The last thing Rob would do is try to upset you. But Adam wouldnt let up. Dont defend him. I hate his snarky attitude. Leslie burst into tears. She didnt know what to say or do to keep the peace in her marriage. Everything had to be done Adams way. Adam blamed her for the littlest things, becoming irate over the smallest slights. Lately, hed begun to ridicule Leslie for the weight she couldnt take off after the last pregnancy. Leslie had started to decline invitations with other people, because she never knew if Adam would be in a good mood. What was so unsettling was that Adam could be the most charming, funny person youd ever encounter when he wanted to impress. At the beginning, Adam had shown her the most loving side, lavishing her with compliments, promises, and gifts. Leslie had fallen hard. She missed the adoring husband she had fallen in love with.What happens when individuals, like Leslie, in the fictionalized vignette above, can no longer deny that a previously blissful relationship has become destructive to their self-esteem and sense of personal integrity? In the March 1-7, 2018, issue of Florida Weekly, we described the troubling personality traits of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) and the damaging effect that parents with NPD may have on their children. The American Psychiatric Association describes NPD as a pervasive pattern of grandiosity (in fantasy or behavior), a constant need for admiration, and a lack of empathy, with many of the following features: a sense of entitlement, interpersonally exploitive behavior, preoccupation with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty or idealized love, arrogant, haughty behavior. Its important to note that we should always be cautious about applying a mental health label to another person. Although the term NPD is used in this article, we should be mindful that different individuals will potentially show a wide span of NPD traits and functioning, ranging from moderate behavior to the very severe decline in functioning displayed in a sub-group with malignant, antisocial behaviors. To expand this discussion, lets consider what its like for a person to become romantically involved with someone with NPD. Often, a person with NPD has the uncanny ability to captivate us with charisma and charm. Sadly, this magical phase often is time-limited. As individuals get to know their NPD partners in depth, they may begin to despise the very traits theyd initially found so attractive. Now, if those individuals dare to assert a different opinion, or fail to meet the very high expectations placed on them by their NPD partner, life can become quite heated and volatile. Those with NPD will oftentimes have an exquisite sensitivity to perceived slights, and can be triggered to react with cruel, accusatory volatility. They may show defensiveness and reactive anger if they dont get their way. Furthermore, theyre not likely to accept accountability for any of their faults, preferring to blame everyone else. Those with NPD expect everything to be about and for them. Other peoples needs and wants including those closest to them become superfluous. Partners become tense and drained from unpredictable tantrums and demands. Its especially troubling to experience the NPD partners inability (or unwillingness) to empathize with anothers feelings, and to know theres little or no sensitivity or regard to the impact their disrespect may have. Over time, the NPDs partner may become drained from unpredictable tantrums and demands. They may begin to doubt their own reality, finding theyre walking on eggshells, tiptoeing to prevent an ugly row. They may hate the way THEY are behaving in response to the NPD partner. In extreme instances, there may be a legitimate fear of violence. Does the above description have an eerie resemblance to your longterm relationship? Are you tense and exhausted, and uncertain about how to proceed? Ultimately, the decision about what to do is YOURS. However, its important to gain clarity about the particular challenges of your relationship and to honestly appraise the depth of your emotional well-being and to consider the impact of any relational disruptions. Too many people minimize or deny the intense emotional impact of enduring disrespectful, self-centered behavior. Theyre often not able to recognize the glaring dysfunction that is painfully apparent to those around them. Are you able to determine a bottomline boundary about what behaviors and treatment you will accept from your NPD partner? And to speak up assertively about behaviors that are intolerable? Will you stick to following through with clear messages about what you will accept and where you will draw the line? It might be difficult to determine whether your partner will be receptive to hearing from you about how unhappy you are. Gauging your partners receptivity to hearing your message and willingness to get help might determine the likelihood that there can be any sustainable, positive improvement. Many people embroiled in toxic situations are not able to make changes in their relationships without the guidance and support of professionals skilled in this area. It can be intimidating and sometimes very risky to assert changes or to insist on respectful treatment. Its not uncommon to feel anxious, intimidated by, or fearful of the pushback that will inevitably occur when you take a stand with someone who demands to get his/her own way. Certainly, when there are cases of violence, and/or instances where young people are emotionally or physically at risk, protective steps need to be taken. Experienced mental health professionals and settings that offer counseling and shelter for victims of domestic abuse, are available to support individuals in taking the necessary protective steps. n Linda Lipshutz, M.S., LCSW is a psychotherapist serving individuals, couples and families.

I love classical music, the 24-yearold Orlando native said. I always listened to it growing up. At school, I used to listen to it when I studied. The Illinois State University graduate took piano lessons until age 14 and has a brother who is pursuing a masters degree in the discipline. To him, he thinks classical music was perfected back then and that he cant make it more perfect, Mr. DeJong said, referring to 22-year-old Matthew DeJong, a Florida State University student. I think he can. The elder sibling has an appreciation for cadences, codas and crescendos and flats, sharps and scales. It relaxes me, Mr. DeJong said. I can think and listen at the same time, as opposed to the heavy metal that I also listen to. But thats another story. Classical music transcends the concert hall whenever No. 12 sets foot on the clay. While he does not listen to it to prepare for practice, he applies the skills he honed from years of polishing notes, chords and tempos. It seems to always come back to baseball, Mr. DeJong said. Dedication. Execution. Work ethic. Sometimes, it can just align.It did. In his debut with the Cardinals in 2017, he batted .285 with 25 home runs and 65 RBIs. The statistics continue to stack up after his first regular game of the season March 29 against the New York Mets at Citi Field. His teams home opener at Busch Stadium took place April 5 against the Arizona Diamondbacks.I knew I wanted to go pro, said Mr. DeJong, who has excelled as a player since age 5. I wanted to be the best. Had the schedule brought the Cardinals to Miami from April 16 to 18 the team is in Chicago facing the Cubs at Wrigley Field instead he might have attended Romantic Reflections, the symphonys Masterworks Series finale, April 17. It just fits right in to what I do and what I like to do, Mr. DeJong said. Its a fun thing to be around. Ive met a lot of great people. He will have to catch Elgars Cello Concerto and Rachmaninoffs Symphony No. 2 on another date. My main identity is a baseball player, and thats what I spend most of my time on, Mr. DeJong said. Its a short window in my life. Burton Rocks, the agent who helped secure DeJongs foreseeable financial future in the sport, used the words diverse, expressive and unique in describing the 6-foot-1-inch 195-pounder. Paul was a biochemistry major, Mr. Rocks said. He said he would make a good ballplayer because he knew about experimenting, failing and trying to succeed after failing. I never got an answer like that before. It was wonderful. Mr. Rocks shares a common passion with Mr. DeJong, having taken piano lessons as a child and developing an admiration for classical music. After going to many of the same Palm Beach Symphony events, the New York-based businessman joined the Young Friends. Weve made so many nice acquaintances, Mr. Rocks said. He views it as an avenue to learn life skills and human interaction. The symphonys director of marketing and communications said she is awed by the adventitious alliance of athleticism and artistry. Our members now have the opportunity to meet this Major League Baseball star, Lisa Bruna said. Its this neat, sort of synergistic relationship happening. Executive Director David McClymont agreed. How many other Paul DeJongs are out there in the community? Mr. McClymont asked. Were on a journey to find out.DEJONGFrom page 1 PHOTO BY LARRY MORALES/INDIEHOUSEPalm Beach Symphony Executive Director David McClymont (left), St. Louis Cardinal and classical music aficionado Paul DeJong and agent Burton Rocks pose at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium in Jupiter.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYPeople respond to the death of pets in as many ways as their own experiences, lifestyles and spiritual beliefs might suggest. Backyard burials or a cremation handled through vet erinarians are familiar rituals. More and more pet owners are choosing veterinary hospice care, grief counseling, funerals, art made of the cremains, and even cryogenic preservation. In West Palm Beach, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue Leagues death-related services for pets include euthanasia, private or communal cremation and interment at its Berman Memorial Pet Garden ($50 to $250). For a $25,000 minimum bequest, the agency offers a program called Peace of Mind that provides ongoing care for up to three pets should their owner die, including adoptions and medical. We make sure that animal never falls through the cracks, said Kim Hanson, major and planned giving officer. For Ms. Baron and others who mourned the death of Maggie, a 12-pound ball of cotton with a shrill bark and a loyal heart, the ritual included burying the pet in a small pink casket, music and prayers reflecting the familys Catholic beliefs. A gravestone was laser inscribed with Maggies image and a long epitaph reads in part: From time to time people tell me, Lighten up, its just a dog or Thats a lot of money for just a dog. For me and folks like me, its not Just a dog. Its an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment. Some pet owners may in fact one day come to embody those dreams of the future, their pets risen like Lazarus from a freezing bath. Through the Cryonics Institute, based outside Detroit, Mich., pet owners have had their dogs, cats, birds and lizards cryonically preserved in thermos-like tanks filled with liquid nitrogen with the possibility though no guarantee that science could someday revive them, their bodies restored to some measure of health. The cost to preserve a dog of 15 pounds or less is $5,800, not including shipping or vet expenses and yearly membership fees to the institute. About 165 people and 130 animals are preserved at the warehouse facility outside Detroit. The institute was started by the famous physicist and cryonics pioneer Robert Ettinger. It is one of a handful in the world undertaking this scientific endeavor for people and their four-legged friends. I would say the vast majority of them want to be frozen with their pet and be brought back with their pet, said the nonprofits president, Dennis Kowalski. He guesses that could happen in 50 to 200 years, but adds who knows? Last year, Boca Raton resident Rhonda Piper started Life Celebration Keepsakes, producing custom-made blown glass pieces that incorporate a small amount of human or animal cremains. With the help of an experienced glass blower at the Benzaiten Center for Creative Arts, she has produced about 50 pieces so far and is working on perfecting designs such as a seashell, butterfly or a simple sphere. Its a keepsake that many feel more comfortable displaying at home than an urn, she has found. You can choose to tell people what they are, or you dont have to its a personal decision, she said. In Fort Myers, the Rev. Suzy Post performs blessings for animals that will be euthanized and memorial services for deceased pets at Iona-Hope Episcopal Church. Part of the churchs All Gods Creatures Animal Ministry, started by a parishioner a few years ago, the ministry is a service for everyone in the community, not just church members, the Rev. Post said. I do absolutely believe that all animals go to heaven because they were all created by God, she said. I think there is a place in heaven for every living, breathing creature that walks or crawls on this earth. Among its many animal ministry outreach activities, the church welcomes all pets for a blessing each year on the Sunday in October after the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals. Throughout her career, the Rev. Post has blessed cats, dogs, snakes, lizards, turtles, birds, horses and even a blind raccoon. The church is planning to build a memorial garden with a columbarium to inter animals ashes and a field where they may be scattered instead. Veterinary hospice, or end-of-life care for pets, is a growing field, said Dr. Dani McVety. She teaches the subject at her alma mater, University of Floridas College of Veterinary Medicine in Gainesville. PETSFrom page 1 Maggie was 14 when she died last June. Riley the cat has been cryonically preserved at the Cyronics Institute near Detroit. Pet owners may purchase caskets for their pets at Pet Haven Cemetery. The Rev. Suzy Post; Evelyn Reynolds, a parish member; and the Rev. Ray Buchanan lead a memorial service at Iona-Hope Episcopal Church. PIPER A prayer said for a critically ill dog, at a memorial service at Iona-Hope Episcopal Church in Fort MyersFor Brandi, May peace and joy, and unconditional love, be with you this day. May you nd grace and mercy before the Lord of heaven and Earth. May you always rejoice today in the goodness which God has laid upon all of his creatures, especially those here today who love and care for you. And, may your memory be cherished each day in their heart, that the love which you share with them, may it be shared with everyone whom they meet. I Bless you, Brandi, in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. May your spirit be blessed today and always, and may God welcome you into his Kingdom, where there is no pain or suffering, but only Life, Joy, Running, Jumping, Playing, and Love and Peace, evermore. May the God of hope ll us with joy and peace in believing through the power of the Holy Spirit.


PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 NEWS A17In 2009, Dr. McVety also co-founded Lap of L ove, a pr actice dedicated entirely to animal hospice. Now it has grown into a network of about 120 hospice vets in Florida and the U.S. Its a really important part of our profession, and up until a few years ago we werent taught that much about it, she said. Instead of focusing on keeping pets alive, hospice aims to give them the most peaceful, comfortable end to life and death possible. Its for the pets as well as the people that love them, Dr. McVety said. Lap of Loves most popular service is in-home euthanasia, which is typically done with a shot containing a high dose of barbiturates and heavy anesthesia. A home visit from one of its vets costs $250. A smaller portion of pet owners request in-home care and consultations for an aging or sick pet to help extend its life, whether the condition is congestive heart failure, arthritis or just old age. Dr. McVety has given that final injection most often for dogs and cats though the third most common pet among Lap of Loves clientele is potbellied pigs. She has given the injection on the beach, before a toast on a dock at sunset, and to one Labrador in a swimming pool. She has seen ceremonies and memorial gatherings for pets from people of Mason, Wiccan, Buddhist, Jewish and Christian beliefs. Everybody has their own way of getting through these things, and nobody should judge anybody else for anything they choose to do, she said. Death is going to happen whether we step in or not, and we have this immense honor and privilege to help our pets through a process that we can make just a little bit easier on them. One of her most moving experiences was euthanizing a dog that belonged to a 16-year-old girl whose father had died the year before of Lou Gehrigs disease. It wasnt just the loss of the dog it was the loss of her dad all over again, she said. There are multiple times where I tear up in appointments. That was one of the few times I really had to make sure I could see the needle and the vein. For many children, the loss of a pet may be their first close encounter with death. Alva resident Aubrey Vealey, 31, grew up Catholic, around animals and hunting in Loxahatchee. Death with animals became just kind of a normal part of the universal experience, it was just a normal part of life, she said. Be it dogs, cats, chickens, cows, raccoons, ducks and squirrels, Ive always had animals children, if they count, she said. Her first pet as a girl was a rabbit, Sheila, that ended up dying after contracting worms, My first heartbreak. Her mom explained that it had gone to bunny heaven, while her dad viewed it more as just another rabbit. My mom the theologian and my dad the good old country boy, she said. A few years ago, Ms. Vealey lost Tippy, a Florida or Black Mouth Cur that she got as a teenager, to diabetes and old age. Ms. Vealeys father didnt want Tippy, who was clearly suffering, to die in a veterinarians office. He put her down himself, feeding her steak and taking her life with a gun shot. I know that sounds brutal to a lot of people, but honestly its instant, humane, it was the way my dad wanted to see her soul depart, Ms. Vealey said. Tippy was buried on the western part of her property. She loved to run, Ms. Vealey said. So we buried her overlooking the cow pasture. It was nothing formal. Every day, when we drive back to that part of our property, we just pay our respects to her. Pat Baron and Charlie Baron regularly drive up from their home in South Lee County to visit Maggies grave at Pet Haven in Punta Gorda. We go up there every week, my husband and I, Ms. Baron said. They say a prayer and bring fresh flowers including, usually, one pink rose among them. Ms. Baron first got Magnolia Maggie in Albany, N.Y., for her daughter, but wound up being her daily caretaker. After her daughter left for college, she and Maggie developed an especially close bond. Maggie was always there to greet them when they arrived home and slept at the foot of their bed each night. After Ms. Baron, who runs a medical billing and consulting business, and her husband started spending part of the year at their home in Lee County, MagMagnolia Maggie Barons headstone at Pet Haven cemetery includes a vase for fresh flowers. Urns of varying sizes are available at Pet Haven Cemetery. A marker pays tribute to a dog at Pet Haven Cemetery. SEE PETS, A18


A18 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYPETSFrom page 17RICH gie came along for the ride. She loved Florida because Ms. Baron works at home rather than going to an office. Not only Florida, she loved the drive back and forth from New York, said Ms. Baron, often pausing during a phone conversation with Florida Weekly, when the still-raw emotion of her loss became overwhelming. She never complained. For Maggie, she didnt care, because she was with us. Two years before Maggie died, she was diagnosed with melanoma. The Barons sought out a progressive immunotherapy treatment at Morphogenesis in Tampa, which specializes in cell and gene therapy. I cant tell you how much it was because we didnt care, Ms. Baron said. It was expensive, but it was well worth the two years. Her grief over Maggies death was different from that of her parents deaths, the pain more acute, she said. My parents, you graduate from college, you move away I love my parents desperately but youre not there with them 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so its a different loss Does she believe Maggie is in heaven? I believe Ill see her again, she said. Ms. Baron isnt sure if she wants to take on another dog. Once in a while I do and then I say, my golly, I dont know if I can go through this again, the heartache, and then I think about all the pets who dont have anybody, either, she said. And maybe it would be a situation where it would be good for me and be good for another dog. The gravestones at Pet Haven Cemetery mark the passing of animals with names like Storm, Gigi, Muffin, Sugar Bear, Bobby, Laser and Brando. Our good boy, one simple epitaph reads about a dog, while another says, Our favorite scrunchie stealer. One about a bird named Sam says, Loved by all. Another stone contains a quote from Gandhi: The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. Pet Havens cemetery and crematory is at Royal Palm Memorial Gardens, which also handles human burials; in one area, people can be interred along with their pets. Office manager Ashley Rich explains the options to clients, including types of Animals of all sizes provide a lifetime of influence BY ROBBIE SPENCERrspencer@ oridaweekly.comIt doesnt matter which path Cari Jones takes in life its always led back to the animals. The Wisconsin native, part-time Southwest Florida resident and business owner, began her educational and professional life in advertising, design and public relations. Though she admittedly wasnt confident in her scientific ability, she became an elephant trainer. I took an extremely backwards road to work with animals. She began by working with the family horses. She never forgot the connection to the creatures, prompting Ms. Jones to leave her advertising agency back in 2010. It just wasnt what I thought it would be I didnt like the structure. There was too much being lost between the client and artist, she said. So in 2010 Ms. Jones asked a local veterinarian in Wisconsin for some career advice: Without schooling, how does one get into animal training? She moved home, quit her advertising job and took an unpaid internship with a nearby zoo as a 25-year-old. Her parents werent thrilled, but she was doing what she loved: working with animals. Within three months, Ms. Jones moved down to Florida to become a dolphin trainer. A short time after that, Ms. Jones heard that Zoo Miami was searching for elephant keepers. She applied with little hope of receiving an offer. I knew it was dangerous because theres close contact but they liked my experience with horses. They knew I was used to the heavy lifting, long hours that it takes to care for a larger animal, she said. They hired Ms. Jones for a temporary position; within two months she was brought on full time. I was absolutely in love with their intelligence, emotions and capabilities of understanding you. They all have very different personalities and gravitate toward certain people. She equated the experience to gratifying a pack of human toddlers who happened to weigh 10,000 pounds. Then Cari Jones met Maude. Some mightve considered the elephant a diva of sorts. Maude was very slow. She went at her own pace never in a hurry to do anything. The keepers were usually pressed for time, with required health checks, baths and other duties before the elephants could be presented to the public. Maudes carefree attitude toward such necessities caused her to get neglected from time to time; Ms. Jones thought shed try her hand at working with Maude. Maude was fine with getting the normal checks and training. But what she really enjoyed was getting her nails done. Foot care is a critical need for elephants raised in captivity, as they are sometimes subjected to less than optimal walking surfaces. One could argue that Maude was just doing her due diligence. She started to seek me out on my days at the zoo. She would look out, find me, point at me with her trunk and sniff me. It was like a friendship. With lifespans of sometimes 60 years, many elephant keepers train their animals for a very long time. Ms. Jones was at Zoo Miami for around three years when Maude got very sick after a number of warning signs. Maude ended up dying. When Maude went down it was the hardest thing Ive ever been a part of. For more than three years at Zoo Miami, despite the sweat, long hours and weekends, Ms. Jones felt like she didnt work. But it was time to move on and try something new. I know myself. I like having communication directly with my clients so nothing gets lost in translation. Thats how you understand what people want and provide it for them at a reasonable cost. After moving to Naples, she soon launched her own company, naming it in honor of her old friend, Maude: Elephant Creative Co. Being loyal, honest, even realizing how your tone makes people react differently. Those are all things animals taught me the value of. I had to name my company after these creatures that taught me so much. Before she became an elephant trainer, around nine years ago, Ms. Jones was working part-time in a number of veterinarian offices to fulfill her joy working with animals. One day a bait dog from a fighting ring in Madison was brought in, a pit bull named Lady. The owner said she was vicious and should be put down. The vet decided to give Lady a chance, asking Ms. Jones to help out. Lady wasnt aggressive, but didnt trust anybody, either, she recalled. Ms. Jones brought Lady home with her. She never left. She was the best dog in the world. About a year and a half ago, Ms. Jones was getting ready to marry her nowhusband when Lady started having some nasal issues. She was sneezing constantly. Lady was taken to the vet for testing, and after a number of visits they discovered a large tumor in her nasal canal. To remove it with good success margins, they wouldve had to break into her jaw not be able to reconstruct it, Ms. Jones said. The Joneses brought Lady home to consider their options. Ms. Jones was living in Naples when Lady started having the nasal issues. The day after learning of the tumor diagnosis, Lady sneezed again and her tumor hemorrhaged. The bleeding luckily stopped enough for Ms. Jones to take her back to the vet again. Ms. Jones had a lifetime of experience to consider when pondering her dogs future. Seeing people put animals through aggressive, debilitating procedures was something she couldnt stomach. Dogs live through their nose. There was never a thought in our minds to put Lady through that surgery, to chance it. They made the terrible decision to put Lady down, but they wouldnt let her go without a beautiful ending. Ms. Jones and her husband brought Lady to the beach. They took her for a burger and milkshake at the All-American Shake Shop in Naples. And they had all her furry friends from the neighborhood over to play one last time. It was almost peaceful to know that this dog was never going to know a moment of suffering. A photographer from Neubek Photographers documented Ladys last day. The local veterinarian at Town & Country Animal Hospital in Naples came to Ms. Joness home to put Lady to sleep at home, in her bed, where she was most comfortable. They went above and beyond. Less than 24 hours later they brought Ladys ashes and her collar back to us, Ms. Jones said. Cleo is the new head of house for the Joneses after being adopted from the Naples Humane Society; shes the spitting image of a young Lady. After spending several thousand dollars during the last year of Ladys life, they decided to protect their new furry friend with pet insurance so that no decision is made concerning finances. If something comes up, were reimbursed for 90 percent of our expenses, Ms. Jones said. We could never do Ladys surgery; taking away a dogs sense of smell, what kind of life is that? But with Cleo, if a fluke comes up concerning her health, we dont have to even consider money as a factor. It costs us about $40 per month with a $200 annual deductible.

They also have a pickup service for deceased animals. Cremations generally cost $95 or more depending on a pets weight; burial services start at $590. If there is an open casket, the pet is stored in a freezer until the service and often arranged on a favorite blanket, its hair brushed. Ms. Rich said that although larger animals, such as horses, arent buried at the cemetery at this time, it could accommodate them as well. Ms. Rich often cries with families as they prepare their own ritual to say goodbye. Years ago, in Rhode Island, she said goodbye to her pug, Rocco, her first pet on her own as an adult. He died in her arms at her veterinary clinic, where he had been on oxygen. I was devastated, said Ms. Rich, who is 37. I always say he was like my first baby. Its been probably nine years. I can remember the day it happened fresh in my mind like it happened yesterday. His body was cremated, the remains divided between her and her mother, who planted them under a hydrangea. And he blooms every year, Ms. Rich said. As for his spirt, that is around, too. She and many pet owners take a measure of peace in an inspirational poem called Rainbow Bridge about a place Just this side of Heaven where beloved animals can live a good life until they are finally reunited with their owners. Many pet owners share the loss of their animals on social media, such as Facebook, where memes depicting the Rainbow Bridge and what heaven may look like filled with cats and dogs, are prominently posted. I believe pets go to heaven, and just like people they will always be with you, Ms. Rich said. One section of stones in Pet Haven memorializes K-9s with the Charlotte County Sheriffs Office. When a K-9 dies after retirement or off duty, afterdeath care is left to its handler. If that dog dies in the line of duty, however, it is given the same burial as a human officer, said CCSOs K-9 Sgt. Jason Doherty, including an honor guard to stand watch over the remains, a full service and funeral procession. The last time that happened was in 1988. A gravestone at Pet Haven marking that year that Major died in the line of duty reads, So you may live, my life is yours. The officers have a unique relationship with each dog, as a constant companion and highly trained partner. Sgt. Dohertys K-9, Rino, is a 4-year-old Belgian Malinois. If Rino dies in retirement, Sgt. Doherty plans to keep his cremains at home. If he were to die in the line of duty, he would have Rinos cremains interred at the cemetery so that others could pay respects there as they choose. I think it would be selfish for me to keep the remains at my house, he said. Not unlike the experience of a human death, people grieve their pets in individual ways and on their own timelines, said Deborah Paradise, a social worker and bereavement counselor at Avow in Naples. She leads a free support group for people who have lost a pet that meets on the first Monday of each month. Its not uncommon for members to talk about feelings of regret, anger and sadness, she said, or feelings of even relief and then feeling guilty for feeling relief that the pet is no longer with them. (T)hough its very similar to losing a (human) loved one, Ms. Paradise said, one of the hardest parts about losing a pet is that others may not think the loss is that important because it is just a pet even though our pets become like family. There are not official records indicating how much people spend on afterdeath services such as cremations and burials since pet deaths are not officially tracked. But private pet cremation is said to be a growing trend among funeral home directors, said Barbara Kemmis, executive director of the Cremation Association of North America. The National Funeral Directors Association said surveys indicate awareness of pet memorial services is growing among Americans, but that only 6 percent of Americans over age 40 would be very likely to have a memorial service for a pet. Our country and culture are hardly the first to memorialize animals. Gripped by their centuries-long interest in mummification, ancient Egyptians performed death rites for all manner of animals, wrote Peter Jamison in 2013 in a Tampa Bay Times article about the booming pet death care industry. Some of them, including cats, crocodiles and ibises, received individual funerals from priests who considered them sacred. There are many sociological reasons that affect how people react to the death of a pet, from urbanization to whether or not they live alone. To Ms. Vealey in Alva, what happens to a pet after it dies spiritually and how people react, All basically boils down to love. I dont know the answer, to what happens to the soul or animating personality of a pet after it dies, she said. I can only assume, and I assume that they too are part of the divine and that they live on. They say love lives forever it doesnt say love with only humans lives forever, and when we love a pet, thats love. Kit Chamberlain bought them on a lark one day, three 25-cent goldfish. A day later, only one was still alive. That goldfish, which she named Tulip, lived on for nine years, finally growing into a 40-gallon aquarium. I became unexpectedly attached to him, said Ms. Chamberlain, 52. He was beautiful. He was orange and white and had big fins. Tulip was memorialized with a short service and an inscribed brick Mighty and Beautiful Goldfish, it reads at the nonprofit Avow Hospices pet memorial garden in Naples, an option the hospice offers to pets as well as people with a $500 donation. Tulip is the gardens only fish, said Ms. Chamberlain, Avows vice president of administration and communication. Most of the bricks are laid in memory of dogs and cats. Last July, Pamela Templeton lost her dog Jedai Knight, a Cannan that she got in the mid-1990s. She then reflected on all the ways he had been by her side including through the deaths of both her parents as well as a close friend, and a brutal economic crisis that hurt the business she ran at the time, an auto dealership. Theres just nothing like it, having that soul dog, that animal that just knows how to come over and sit down next to you, you know, and looks you in the eye and you know he knows he was that kind of dog, she said. He was gentle and sweet, and he was such a good boy. She got Jedai, a big sable-colored animal with pricked ears and a curly tail, in part because of the sense of security he would bring after she moved into a partially finished community in Fort Myers that remained quite dark at night. Many years later, after one bad night when she knew she had to let him go, her neighbor, a vet, euthanized Jedai, and he died at home. Later that evening, she and her husband went out for a walk. Earlier that day a friend had told Ms. Templeton, (Jedai) knows how much you love him, and he might send you a sign. And as they were driving home, she saw it. I looked up in the sky and I see this cloud and I saw the nose first and the ears second and then I saw the tail curled up, she said. I told Bruce, I said pull over, thats Jedai. So I got a Hallmark card from Jedai in the sky, at twilight the day that he died. It blew my mind. A glass sculpture memorializing a pet, containing the animal s cremains.

MONEY & INVESTINGTiffany stock remains a pricey buyA top performing stock over the last two years has been the luxury jewelry maker Tiffany & Co. Since June 2016, the stock has almost doubled. However, in the past couple of months, the stock has taken a hit and many analysts are questioning its high valuation. So why has the company fallen from its highs and what does the future hold for this iconic brand? Tiffany was founded in 1837 and started with one store in lower Manhattan. Led by Charles Tiffany, the company focused on high-end jewelry and was distinguished by its no price haggling and cash-only policies. During the Civil War, the company produced swords and precision surgical instruments for the Union Army, and in 1870, Tiffany opened a $500,000 palace of jewels at Union Square that brought it national attention. In later years, the company earned international acclaim for revising the Great Seal of the United States, revising the Navys Medal of Honor, purchasing the French crown jewels, and even designing the New York Yankees logo. In 1978, Avon Products purchased Tiffany, and the company attempted to reinvent itself as more of a mass-merchandise company focusing on lower priced items that middle class consumers could purchase. Longtime customers revolted against the diluted brand, poor quality products, and disappointing service. The company fell on hard times and was purchased by a private investor and then went public again in 1987. After the U.S. recovered from the recession of the early 1990s, the company strived to once again become a luxury brand and continues this pursuit today. However, after the recovery from the financial crisis in the early part of the past decade, Tiffanys lagged its peers in recovering from the global recession. Even in 2015 and 2016, as the global economy was experiencing significant growth, the company reported declining revenue numbers and its stock price was stagnant. In 2017, Tiffany brought in new management and investors were optimistic that Tiffany could be brought back to glory. The new CEO quickly brought costs under control and profit margins increased. Tiffanys dividend was increased and company leaders promised higher revenues were right around the corner. As a result, investors piled into the stock, and it jumped from $60 to over $110. But how would Tiffany increase sales? It seemed like consumers, even very wealthy consumers, were hesitant to pay massive premiums for Tiffanys branded items. So Tiffany once again tried a more mass market appeal. It introduced a new line of less expensive sterling silver jewelry. The company started a line of Tiffanys branded home goods. It even opened a blue box cafe inside its flagship New York store to attract visitors. And how is this new strategy working for Tiffany? If the recent earnings announcement was any indication, the answer is not very well. Revenue was below expectations in the U.S., only growing 1 percent. Even more concerning is that international sales, a significant part of Tiffanys overall market, also came in below expectations and in many cases actually fell. Further, Tiffanys CEO stated in the earnings call that in order to grow sales in 2018 and beyond, the company would have to spend more on marketing, stores and online, which could depress margins in the near term. So not only is the company selling lower priced items, hurting sales, but it also expects expenses to rise in order to sell more items. In my opinion, this is not a good recipe for success. And with a stock trading at a fairly expensive price/ earnings of 26, this is a company I would stay away from either until its stock price comes back down or its new management can better prove its strategy is one that can drive sales and earnings higher in the long run.

BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY | A21WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM MOVING ON UP If you live at The Club at Ibis and you want to sharpen your tennis skills, youre in luck. Olympic and Davis Cup coach Jay Berger became the director of tennis instruction there in November. Mr. Berger, who coaches the No. 8 ranked tennis player in the world, Jack Sock, says his approach to teaching the game is the same no matter the talent level. I give the personal attention that everybody deserves, he said. Its a well thought out plan when Im on the court with them. I use the same mindset in the way I would working with a pro. Obviously, the athletic abilities are different. I enjoy working with anybody who wants to get better. And Im really enjoying myself here. Ive been having a blast. He plans to put together a program that really inspires the junior players, really focuses on fundamentals, a passion for the sport. I want my students to have what I call a great relationship with competition, Mr. Berger said. I love coaching, he said. I love coaching young kids, I love coaching adults, I love coaching pros. For me, its being around people that want to become better. I spent my life trying to become as good as I could become. With the addition of Mr. Berger, The Club at Ibis in West Palm Beach is believed to be the only major country club in the U.S. to have a director of golf instruction and a director of tennis instruction. Martin Hall, who appears weekly on Golf Channels School of Golf is the clubs director of golf instruction. When you have two people of that caliber in golf and tennis it really makes a statement that we want to have the best instruction possible, said Chuck Gill, Ibiss director of sports and president of the U.S. Professional Tennis Association. We want to set the gold standard for how tennis and golf are taught. We certainly do it in golf with Martin. With Jay, we have an opportunity to do the same with tennis. Mr. Berger coached the last three U.S. Olympic teams, helping the Americans win six gold medals, and served as an assistant coach for numerous U.S. Davis Cup teams. A Florida native raised in Plantation, Mr. Berger spent the last nine years as the U.S. Tennis Association Player Developments head of mens tennis. Under his direction, the number of U.S. men 21 or younger ranked in the top 200 has increased from two to eight. This is the only country that has more than two. As a player, Mr. Berger was ranked as high as No. 7 in the world. He won three ATP titles and reached the quarterfinals of the U.S. and French Opens in 1989 before he was forced to retire at 24 because of chronic knee injuries. One of his most memorable wins came against the legendary Jimmy Connors in the second round of the 1989 French Open. We played on center court and there were about 25,000 people there, and I think all but four are going for Jimmy Connors, Mr. Berger said. We had an absolute battle and I came out on top (winning in four sets). One of Mr. Bergers sons, Daniel, is a professional golfer who has won two PGA Tour titles and last year played on the winning U.S. team in the Presidents Cup. When Daniel Berger was ranked 19th in the world last summer, it marked the first time a father-son has been ranked in the top 20 in both tennis and golf; theyre also the only pair to have played in the Davis Cup and Presidents Cup. Daniel is going to pass me in ranking, Mr. Berger said. Its actually been a lot of fun. Now Im known as Daniel Bergers father, which I love. Im really proud of him. Jay Berger Age: 50 Where I grew up: Plantation Where I live now: Jupiter Education: Clemson University and Florida International University. Degree in sports management. My first job and what it taught me: My first job was as a tennis pro. It taught me about hard work, love of travel, being resilient and having confidence in myself. Career highlights: Personally, being ranked in the top 10 in the world in 1989. As a coach all the Olympic wins, winning the Davis Cup, and coaching Jack Sock from the number 24th rank to 8th in the world. Hobbies: Spending time with my kids (ages 19-26), playing golf and fishing for bonefish or tarpon. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: Have passion and get the best education you can and work with the best coaches. And you have to care about people. My mentor: Jos Higueras, I worked with him in the USTA for nine years and he taught me so much. I love coaching. I love coaching young kids, I love coaching adults, I love coaching pros. For me, its being around people that want to become better. I spent my life trying to become as good as I could become.

ON THE LINKS A final look at this years Honda Classic Heres one last look at this years Honda Classic, which has grown rapidly since moving to PGA National a decade ago. The tournament survived a nomadic life in Broward County, evolving from the Jackie Gleason Inverrary Classic in 1972 with four different venues over the next 31 years, a four-year stopover at the Country Club at Mirasol, then finally across PGA Boulevard to PGA National in 2007, as close to a permanent home as one could imagine. American Honda receives plenty of credit for the stability, coming aboard in 1982 when the tournament was still at the Inverrary Country Club in Lauderhill and now has become the longesttenured sponsor on the PGA Tour with 37 consecutive years of support. When he was in the prime of his playing career, Jack Nicklaus considered Inverrary a home game and he won there three years in a row, 1976-77-78, and had six other top-10 finishes in the first 12 years. And Jack, who has lived at the Lost Tree Club in North Palm Beach since the late 1960s, is still deeply involved. The tournaments beneficiaries are the Nicklaus Childrens Health Care Foundation and the South Florida Childrens Charities under the umbrella of the Childrens Healthcare Charity carried jointly by wife, Barbara, and son, Gary. Back in the field last month for the first time since 2014, Tiger Woods also considers the Honda a home game as it is the closest to his Jupiter Island compound. The combined results of all these factors led to record attendance, record TV ratings and likely record contributions to the aforementioned local childrens charities. For the second year in a row, the Monday-Sunday attendance topped 200,000. The confirmed total of 224,642 was about 10 percent over the 203,815 of 2017. Second round attendance on Friday was up 20 percent. CBS and Golf Channel recorded huge viewership numbers. CBS had an average of 3.3 million for its two weekend telecasts, up 14 percent over NBCs coverage a year ago, largely the result of Tiger Woods presence. Golf Channels lead-in coverage Sunday drew almost 1.6 million enthusiasts, making it the mostwatched lead-in in five years. It will be a few more weeks before all the money for local charities is counted and ready for distribution. It follows that last years numbers will be exceeded. In 2017, a record $3.63 million was distributed to 133 local organizations, affecting the lives of more than 32,000 boys and girls and their families. By shortening the par-5 sixth and 10th holes to par-4s for the tournament, the Champion course plays to a par of 70. The cumulative scoring average was 72.945 shots per day. Statistically speaking, Friday was the hardest day, 73.156 strokes, Saturday the easiest, 70,908. The winner, Justin Thomas, and Luke List, the runnerup via a playoff that ended after one hole, were also one-two in cumulative driving distance, 320.7 and 319.9 yards, respectively; Tommy Fleetwood led in hitting fairways, 75 percent or 42 out of 56, excluding the par-3s; and Thomas was the best on sand saves, eight-for-eight. The par-3 17th was the most difficult hole on the Champ with an average of 3.533 for 435 scores over four days, the par-5 third the easiest at 4.809. Indeed, while the Bear Trap, 15 through 17, draws most of the attention for its difficulty, the first three holes were three of the four easiest. The 15th ranks No. 3, 3.391; the 16th No. 4, 4.262. Ranked second at 4.416 is the sixth. Relief is in sight after the Bear Trap as the par-5 18th is the second easiest at an average of 4.860 strokes. Overall, there were 76 scores under par-70, but only 10 at 80 and over. Six scorecards were turned in without showing a bogey, two each Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. And one final note: In the 1972 inaugural, Tom Weiskopf earned $52,000 from the $260,000 purse. Last month, Thomas collected $1,188,000 from the $6,600,000 in prize money. The Honda Classic will be played a week later in 2019, Feb. 28 through March 3. A22 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELChevrolets new Equinox appeals to your youthful halfReasonably priced crossovers are often about compromise. If it werent for obligations to family, business or anything else that requires space, wed probably all be driving roadsters and fun 4x4s. So in a class thats built on settling, the new Chevrolet Equinox is quietly bringing back a little youthful rebellion. The uprising is a gentle one. While the 2018 Equinox is handsome, its not a revolutionary design. The front incorporates some of the more popular features: LED running lights, power ridges in the hood and bumpers that are well integrated into the fenders. Premium versions get more chrome, larger wheels and upgraded lighting for added appeal. The interior does a good job with the useful features: climate controls and the standard touchscreen infotainment system, for example. The steering wheel and gauges are improved over the previous generation and will be familiar to anyone who has recently driven Chevys Malibu sedan. (The Start/Stop system is a little more annoying than most other vehicles, but most owners probably wont notice it after a while.) The new Equinox has plenty of legroom in the rear, along with USB outlets to make sure iPad users of all ages can continue to charge up on long trips after all, isnt anyone shopping for a midsize crossover likely compromising for the sake of children? All of this makes for a solid entry into the market segment. For those who configure an Equinox correctly, however, it can be a lot more than just a comfortable commuter. The base motor is a 1.5-liter turbocharged unit; a 1.6-liter turbodiesel and 2.0-liter gas turbo are available as options. The 2.0-liter is at the top of the power ladder, which is what people should really want in a crossover. A 3.6-liter V6 that was available in the previous generation looked good on paper but just didnt feel quite peppy enough for the premium it was commanding. The 252 horsepower in the new 2.0-liter turbo makes less muscle than the old six-cylinder, but its a far superior motor. The turbocharged power plant delivers its full force in an immediate and mighty lump just like the hot hatchbacks many Equinox owners probably had in their youth. In fact, peg the accelerator to the floor and you get a little adolescent tire squeal. This could have been removed with different tires, differential and other components, but were glad Chevys engineers left it in the final product. It gives the Equinox a taste of juvenile fun thats missing in other crossovers. More of this youthful feeling comes from a very nimble chassis. The steering is light but confident, and the body doesnt roll too much during cornering. It also helps that the 2018 model is nearly 400 pounds lighter than its predecessor. All in all, the new Equinox has a very car-like ride. And thats the recipe for a home run in the crossover category. Because the heart of this market segment is consumers who want the versatility of a wagon and a tough off-road appearance, but deep down also secretly desire something a little more fun thats reminiscent of the days when they had less responsibility. Getting the right Equinox also requires a mindful eye on the budget. A car like our tester a Premiere trim with nearly every option box checked carries a sticker price of more than $40,000. All-wheel drive can cost an extra $2,000-$4,000, depending on packaging. All this puts the top-level Equinox in some prestigious badge territory. Theres a much lower price point on the 2.0-liter Equinox. Chevrolet offers this motor on lower trim levels and has good incentive packages that can make the right sale and option combination total an out-thedoor price closer to $27,000 or even less. Not bad for a well-equipped ride that buys back a hint of your youth.

A26 WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 FLORIDA WEEKLY ANTIQUESA cast-iron bunny hops to top at auction BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELWhere did the Easter bunny come from? There is no suggestion of an egglaying rabbit or hare in the Bibles scriptures. There were stories about decorated eggs at Easter as early as the 1300s. And children made nests for the colored eggs. In America, the bunny arrived in the early 1700s with German immigrants in Pennsylv ania. The idea of eggs at Easter was universal, but instead of a bunny, countries had foxes, cuckoo birds, hares and more. The rabbit symbolizing Easter is now a fluffy, young bunny, even though it was an adult rabbit in earlier years. A doorstop shaped like a rabbit probably was not originally made as a symbol of Easter, but it could have been. The iron figure of a sitting rabbit was made in the early 1900s by Spencer Manufacturing Company, in Guilford, Connecticut. The 15-inch-high doorstop was so rare it auctioned at Bertoia in New Jersey for $5,400 three times the estimate. Q: Could you please tell me how much my barber chair is worth? It is white metal and brown leather and reads Berninghaus on the footrest. A: Eugene Berninghaus was born in Germany in 1845. He moved with his parents to New York in 1849, then Cincinnati in 1856. Berninghaus also lived for a short time in Chicago, but after the 1871 fire, he and his family moved back to Cincinnati, where he began making perfumes and barbers lotions. In 1875, he opened his business, the Eugene Berninghaus Company. It made barber chairs, other barber furniture, and shaving implements from custom-decorated shaving mugs to razors, clippers and shears. Berninghaus died in 1924 and his business lasted until 1938. Berninghaus was the first to design a barber chair that both reclined and revolved called Paragon. One of his best-known and most collectible models is the Hercules. Its hydraulic mechanism cranks the chair up with a lever, and then down when the lever is released. Older and more elaborate Berninghaus chairs made with woods like mahogany, oak and walnut can sell for more than $1,000. Chairs like your Berninghaus Hercules model with porcelaincoated metal and leather upholstery have sold in poor condition for $100 and in good condition for $400 to $600. Q: I inherited a pottery beer stein my mother had when she lived in England. It has a white background and pictures a peasant man and woman in an outdoor setting. The colors are predominately blue and yellow with some green. The pewter lid is engraved J.C.W., 1. 7. 89. There is no makers mark on the bottom. Can you tell me more about it and what its worth? A: Glazed earthenware steins with decorations picturing peasants were made in Thuringia, Germany, in the late 1700s. Some were made by famous factories and were marked, but most were made by less important German potteries. Steins still are being made in old styles. The engraved letters and numbers on the pewter lid of your stein are the owners initials and date. The value of your stein, if old, is about $500. Q: I have a picture of John F. Kennedy autographed to my family. During World War II, my father was in the Navy with Pierre Salinger, President Kennedys press secretary. Id like to have the picture appraised, but there are no political auctions around here. Some reports are that a signed picture stating its to our family could be worth thousands. I wont send it to any online companies. How can I get the value? A: You can contact auction houses that have political auctions to find out if there is any interest in the photo. If the auction is interested in it, take a picture of the photograph, making sure its clear enough to read the autograph, and send it to them with the details of how your family got the picture. Dont be disappointed. It isnt worth thousands of dollars. A picture autographed to someone usually is worth less than a picture with an autograph that is not to anyone.

Miller Time: Dennis Miller invades the Kravis on March 31 BY STEVEN J. SMITHssmith@ oridaweekly.comDennis Miller is the kind of comedian who defies easy classification and thats just the way he likes it. Hey, Im happy I have an audience from anywhere, he laughed. Im fiscally conservative and socially liberal. Quite frankly, when I see the audiences on the left, what a minefield it is. Its pretty uptight on the left right now. I find conservatives to be a bit looser. Mr. Miller will bring his unique brand of humor to the Kravis Center for one performance only on Saturday evening, March 31. In this provocative performance, he plans to serve up a dish of his familiar humor and outspoken takes on todays hot topics in the biting style that made him famous, loaded with esoteric and wideranging knowledge. Originally from Pittsburgh, Mr. Miller exploded into the national spotlight in 1985 on Saturday Night Live as the shows new Weekend Update commentator. He was an instant success with his snide, deadpan bashing of political and showbiz personalities. But he said his early comedic inspiration came from a gentler source. Jonathan Winters always resonated with me when I was a kid, because some of the jokes he made were so accessible to me as a child, he said. I remember once at the end of a show he took the inner tube of a tire as part of an improv game. He bent the tube in half so it represented a whales mouth and stuck his head out from the inside. I just remember falling on the floor laughing.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY COLLECTORS CORNER A rosewood game table was in the cards for me scott SIMMONS God bless Grandma and Myrt. Theyd gone to the library, had done their research and were convinced they could bleach Grandma Bolenders early 19th-century walnut folding table to match Grandmas new maple dining set. The table, which was hinged at the center, pivoted on a metal spike to form a square that could seat four people. It made a nice console in Grandmas dining area. Grandmas mother-in-law had given her the table, and it was a treasured piece. Grandma and Myrt were best friends and neighbors. They did everything together, and that included altering heirlooms. First, they stripped the table. Then they soaked it with chlorine bleach, and with that, the wood grain began to rise and the walnut began to fade from its dark, rosy hue to a gray. They sanded it, then applied clear varnish. It never matched, and Grandma always regretted changing the piece, which she called the French card table. When my grandparents moved to Fort Myers, the table sat near the entry of their house until my mother married, and Grandma gave it to her. She initially used it as a dining table, before standing it near the dining area of our house, where you had to be careful not to bump it, lest the half of the tabletop that leaned against the wall came crashing down on whatever was on the table. And so it goes Thirty years later, it was my turn. I duly sanded away Grandma and Myrts varnish, and applied a dark walnut stain. I thought I was doing right by the piece. It looked better, but the grain still was raised. What amateurs we were! I, too, used it as a dining table, then as an end table. Its hosted many a breakfast and lunch, but never a card game.

But then the store had a sale in which some items were 75 percent off, and the table fell into that category. It was built around 1820 of a hardwood thats been veneered in rosewood. The grain detail is exquisite. This table is simpler than some pieces of the same era. The two back legs pivot out to support the hinged top, which opens to reveal a felt-covered card table surface. Its not perfect I will need to have someone repair some of the veneer around the edge, but its beautiful regardless, from its hexagonal legs to its exquisitely grained top. THE FIND:An early 19th-century rosewood game tableSCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYThis Regency-style game table dates from around 1820 and was made either in England or in the United States. It is covered in a rosewood veneer, and the top unfolds to reveal a felt-covered game surface. 4O7 Northwood Rd.

Artists and programs are subject to change. Shedding a bright new light on old age The End of Old Age: Living a Longer, More Purposeful Life, by Dr. Mare Agronin. Da Capo Press. 227 pages. Hardcover, $27. This book should be on the desk of every geriatric specialist, senior living facility staff member and senior citizen caretaker. Most senior citizens will also benefit from its wisdom, compassion and sensible guidelines for successful living at an advanced age. Carefully organized into four easily digested parts each containing two complementary chapters, Dr. Marc Agronins book is nothing less than a manual for moving beyond the negative connotations of aging. We must learn, he writes, how to age in a creative manner that is both the antidote to feeling old and the elixir of aging well. It is a philosophy aimed not at recapturing youth, but rather exploiting the gifts of advanced age. Dr. Agronin is an accomplished writer whose experience and empathy generate positive vibes as well as practical planning advice. One of his key points concerns the accumulated wisdom of the elderly. He offers many examples, stories of patients and others, of how this wisdom has value not only for others, but as a resource for the person going through the aging process. He articulates five categories of behavior, vividly defined and exemplified, to explore the growth and use of an individuals wisdom in old age. Presented as five jewels in the crown of wisdom, they are: savant, sage, curator, creator and seer. Though the categories overlap somewhat, they are useful concepts. They are not meant to pigeonhole people, but to find the ways in which aging is useful, to counter the customary dread and denigration of aging and to build new habits of identity. Dr. Agronin defines a concept he calls age points as periods of adversity, struggle or despondency along the aging journey. Age points threaten our ability to cope; Dr. Agronin guides readers through a series of stages to work through the trauma of an age point. First is recognizing the precipitating event, after which comes a sense of suspension of not being able to respond to a crisis productively. Next comes a multifaceted evaluation of how to reconcile the gap between what we have and what we need. Finally, comes the action of resolution and forward movement, usually attached to an altered perspective and sense of positivism. Further chapters reveal and illustrate similar tools. Each is filled with carefully crafted case studies that are as uplifting as they are informative. Readers will recognize themselves, their parents and their friends in these vignettes. They will see how others have pushed away the blocks that seem to stand in the way of a fruitful, worthwhile passage through lifes final decades. They will understand how fear and loathing can be transformed into celebration. Indeed, even celebrations with new rituals and the refinement/renewal of habitual ones. Aging well requires creativity, and Dr. Agronin pursues this important ingredient in the chapter titled Renewal, Reinvention and Creative Aging. Once again, he designs a conceptual frame, in this case an action plan that leads to performance and accomplishment. Its steps, each clearly articulated and exemplified, are: reserve, resilience, reinvention, legacy and celebration. Sample charts and grids help readers to get started on the path to building and maintaining an aging process that will bring the best possible experience and outcome. Bolstered by the findings of other professionals in the field, Dr. Agronin provides well-tested roadmaps for successful years and decades of aging. He is a fine stylist whose thoughtfulness, clinical experience and caring nature will give readers confidence in new, attractive possibilities for their aging selves. But there is much work to be done.About the authorA summa cum laude graduate of Harvard University and the Yale School of Medicine, Dr. Marc Agronin is a boardcertified adult and geriatric psychiatrist. Since 1999 he has served as the director of mental health services, clinical research and the outpatient memory center at Miami Jewish Health, Floridas largest not-for-profit long-term care provider. He has published essays in the New York Times and Scientific American Mind, and writes regularly on aging and retirement issues for the Wall Street Journal. The End of Aging is his ninth book.

The group exhibition titled Flora will feature the work of nearly 30 contemporary artists in a celebration of springtime.

Children under 12 are free. The museum is located on the Old School Square campus at 51 N. Swinton Avenue in downtown Delray Beach. I wanted to do a lighthearted, beautiful show for the spring and summer, said Melanie Johanson, curator of the Cornell. Theres so much artwork that is inspired by plants and flowers, in so many different ways. It was a fun one to curate, but also difficult as so many artists do take inspiration from these things. Follow the museum on social media: Facebook: @OldSchoolSquareCornellArtMuseum; Instagram: @ CornellArtMuseum; Twitter: @CornellMuseum PUZZLE ANSWERS Symphonic Band to present Our Stars Shine Indeed The Symphonic Band of the Palm Beaches will present its annual scholarship concert, Our Stars Shine Indeed, at 7:30 p.m. April 7, at the Duncan Theatre in Lake Worth and at 7:30 p.m. April 14 at the Eissey Campus Theatre in Palm Beach Gardens.

The program, paid for with a $100,000 grant from Disney with support from the Kravis Center, allows local underresourced elementary schools to create theater programs at no cost to them. Schools should contact the Kravis Center by Friday, April 27. The schools selected for 2018-2019 will participate in a 17-week musical theater residency, led by a team of teaching artists trained by the Kravis Center and Disney Theatrical Productions, at no cost. Each school will receive performance rights, education support materials and guidance from the teaching artists. The program features a professional development focus, through which participating school teachers partner with Kravis Center teaching artists to learn how to produce, direct, choreograph, and music direct, culminating in their first 30-minute Disney KIDS musical at their school. As a capstone to the experience, the Kravis Center will host a Student Share Celebration in which each school performs one number from their show on the Kravis Centers Dreyfoos Hall stage for an audience of students, teachers, family, and community members.

B10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYPOETSFrom page 1might have more directly inspired Mr. Millers wit and eloquence. Johnny was witty, he was charming, he was debonair, he said. He was a big hero, too. He, like Jonathan, activated my imagination and made me interested in becoming a conduit to whatever I became down the road. But Id say the main guy who influenced me presentationally was Richard Belzer, who was the king of New York comedy in the late 1970s. He was killer and ruled the stage adroit and maladroit at the same moment. Mr. Miller is a five-time Emmy award winner for his critically acclaimed talk show Dennis Miller Live, which had a 10-year run on HBO. He also garnered three Writers Guild of America Awards for that series and another for his 1997 HBO special, Dennis Miller: Citizen Arcane. In addition, Mr. Miller wrote and starred in the Emmy-nominated cable comedy special Raw Feed, which was followed by his eighth special for HBO, Dennis Miller: The Big Speech in 2010. His last stand-up special was America: 180 for the Epix Channel in 2014. Along the way, Mr. Miller served as host of the nationally syndicated radio talk show The Dennis Miller Show and was a regular contributor on The OReilly Factor and host of CNBCs Dennis Miller, a topical interview talk. He has also been cast in a handful of films, usually in dramatic roles. But its his comedy that clearly drives him, even though one might have a difficult time pigeonholing him. If nudged, hell admit he tends to attract an audience that lands a bit right of center. One would think the most liberal places would be on college campuses right now, but they seem very uptight to me, he said. You dont want to tell a joke and have a kid throw a chair through a window or march on stage and tell you to shut up. Mr. Miller added he doesnt believe his fans take the world so seriously. When I wake up, there are days I dont get Trump, he said. There are other days I do get him, very much. I dont think hes Adolf Hitler, but I will say this about him. I think his outer voice warts and all is an accurate depiction of his inner voice. I dont think Hillary Clintons inner voice and outer voice have ever even had a cup of coffee together. As for his upcoming show, Mr. Miller insists its just standup. There will be topical references in it, obviously, he said. But my goal is that after an hour and 15 minutes, the audience will walk out of there with their ribs hurting, thinking, hey, that guy killed me. Thats the prime directive that night. house Gallery at the Historical Society of P alm B each County opens April 6. Picturing Nam features images of the Vietnam War taken by military photographers who give an intimate view from the ground of the soldiers who fought in this conflict. It is presented in part by the Lawrence F. OBrien Family, Pritzker Military Museum & Library, AARP, and the National Archives Foundation. The exhibition will be on display through May 25 at the Johnson History Museum, 300 N. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach. For more information, visit www. or call 561-832-4164.

Windows on the Floating World: The Blume Tropical Wetland Garden is a new garden that features 4-foot-wide see-through walkways that reveal the aquatic plants that thrive in the tropical wetlands. The garden is more welcoming than ever with environmentally friendly boardwalks, benches and displays, plus its waterfalls, wading birds and a wall of bromeliads. The garden was named for Mounts supporter Margaret Blume and designed by artists Mags Harries and Lajos Hder.

Gregg Weiner and Margery Lowe as Edgar Allen Poe and Emily Dickinson. BIAGGI CLARK Palm Beach Dramaworks, which has been integrally involved in the plays development for about two years in its Dramaworkshop program. So, its not a docudrama, jokes the plays director and Dramaworks producing artistic director, Bill Hayes. Indeed, he and playwright Joseph McDonough refer to it as an absurdist comic fantasia, keying more on the two souls vision of what it means to be alive, their shared fascination with death and being true to an artistic vision with profound insights and a lot of silly humor. But theres no attempt to be historically accurate; indeed, while some famed writers did and do hang out together, its unlikely these two ever met. Mr. McDonough quipped, I like to say this play is true except that it never happened. So devotees of their works will see a vision of these creative minds likely far different than they expect when they are inhabited by veteran local actors Margery Lowe and Gregg Weiner. Mr. McDonough, whose several plays and musicals have often premiered at the Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati and the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, has been a frequent visitor since submitting his play for consideration in the Dramaworkshop. The Dramaworkshop was created in the fall of 2014 to develop works in a multi-stage process that takes advantage of a cadre of actors and evaluate scores of submitted plays. Scripts selected move on to various phases of development such as staged readings, workshops, and studio or main stage productions. Edgar & Emily is the first to make it to the fully produced mainstage production. Another piece, Koalas by J. Joseph Cox will receive a staged reading April 20-21. The initiative is part of Dramaworks ongoing goal to become a nationally recognized regional theater, Mr. Hayes said. Its important in the evolution of any regional theater to develop new works and develop world premieres. I dont see this as a unique thing. Regional theater is about investing in the arts; commercial theater is about financial return. Mr. McDonough had researched Dickinson for another piece and then began thinking about Poe. The initial script was submitted amid scores of others. Once selected, the script had a reading in May 2016, which led to deep continuing discussions between Mr. McDonough and Mr. Hayes. A four-day workshop was held last summer with SEE POETS, B12

ADVERTISER! PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B11 LATEST FILMSUnsane Is it worth $10? YesCreepy. Thats the one word that repeatedly comes to mind when watching Unsane, a psychological thriller that keeps you guessing until its traditional horror movie conclusion. Whats curious, though, is that the movie also seems intent on commenting on health insurance, health care and prescription medication, topics that director Steven Soderbergh first touched on in Side Effects (2013) and handles more subtly here. These elements dont make or break Unsane, but they add a level of subtext beyond is the main character crazy? and work well within the narrative. Claire Foy, heretofore best known as Queen Elizabeth on The Crown, stars as Sawyer Valentini, a data analyst who recently moved away from Boston to avoid a stalker. Unpleasant, to be sure. She settled in Pennsylv ania, and in the opening moments we get the standard scenes of her being competent at her job, hit on by her boss and going on a blind date that goes well. Until it doesnt. Not because the guy does anything wrong, though; she has a flashback to her stalker and the evening is ruined. Sawyer seeks help at a mental hospital and is involuntarily committed for seven days. Heres where the critique of the healthcare system comes. One of the patients, Nate (Jay Pharoah), tells her (and us) that intake nurses look for the slightest reason to consider a person potentially dangerous to him/herself or others and, because they know health insurances will cover a seven-day stay, bam, theyre admitted. And once the seven days are up and insurance stops paying, wow, theyre magically cured. For Sawyer, though, her psychosis might be real. She accuses one of the orderlies, George Shaw (Joshua Leonard), of being David Strine, the man who stalked her in Boston. One of the joys of Unsane is figuring out how much is in Sawyers head and how much is real. One of the disappointments is that were not given more of an opportunity to figure it out; the reveal comes too early, leading to a weaker third act than the film should have had. Still, theres enough to keep us intrigued, and Foy is quite good. Those who only know her as the queen will see a totally different person on screen here, a sign that shes is a legitimately talented actress who has a bright career ahead. Leonard, Pharoah and Amy Irving as Sawyers mother are also strong in supporting turns. Theres one issue thats tough to reconcile about Unsane, however, and it has nothing to do with the plot. Its that (presumably in an effort to keep the budget low, and as a kind of experiment) Soderbergh shot the film using iPhone cameras. The results look, well, amateurish. Given that those cameras are capable of 4K-widescreen resolution, theres no reason for the film to look as cheap as it does. If the intention was to create an unsettling mood, the end result is unsuccessful. This is the first horror/psychological thriller Soderbergh has made, and theres enough good in Unsane to give it a look. No doubt if he makes another film of this genre, it will be even better. dan >> One of director Steven Soderberghs frequent collaborators a big time movie star has a cameo in this lm.Did you know? FILM CAPSULES7 Days In Entebbe (Rosamund Pike, Daniel Bruhl, Eddie Marsan) Terrorists hijack an Air France flight to Tel Aviv in the hope of embarrassing the Israeli government in negotiations. Sadly, theres little suspense and its almost always dull. Rated PG-13.The Hurricane Heist (Maggie Grace, Toby Kebbell, Ralph Ineson) A U.S. Treasury officer (Grace) must stop a $600 million heist as a Category Five hurricane hits the fictional town of Gulfport, Ala. The action is merely adequate, and there are ample gaps of logic and reality. Its not even so bad its good, which makes it even worse. Rated PG-13.The Party (Kristen Scott-Thomas, Patricia Clarkson, Timothy Spall) A seven-person dinner party goes awry when longheld secrets are exposed. The solid cast does what it can with the material, but theres too much going on in the scant 71-minute running time for any of it to register. Rated R.

Ms. Lowe and Mr. Weiner, who have worked together several times, including Dramaworks A Dolls House and Caldwell Theatres Clybourne Park. In a new developing work, the chemistry and these words sometimes they fit and sometimes they dont but me and Marge just sort of clicked, Mr. Weiner said as final rehearsals began about three weeks ago. Their chemistry helped through the reading, Mr. McDonough said. Even in that initial reading I knew on the spot it was a strong foundation and I had two actors perfectly suited to the roles. Another get-together occurred in January with more changes and fine-tuning. The Dramaworkshop process allows for regular rewriting as the author can gauge whether the structure of a play works, whether things can be cut or need to be added, whether the dialogue needs tweaking all more effective because the playwright and director hear and see the nascent performances. Mr. McDonough recalled, There were areas where it was overwritten. There were transitions needed.... Marge and Gregg were very good at asking probing intelligent questions about their character: Why am I going in this direction? But the big discovery was that some things I was unsure about whether the actors would be getting, they got, and other things I thought were clear, werent. There were always moments where I thought certain things were funnier, and others that were funnier than I thought they were. Mr. Weiner said that developing new work poses a different kind of challenge for an actor, Its fun but its working with a brand new script is heavier lifting than most. You are working on two levels, he said, being both deep inside the character and outside the performance. You have to be open and work hard, just listen and focus and care about the words youre saying. You have to be super in the moment. But as a kind of editor, youre creating these words and they might not be working. We had a discussion last week about things that dont roll off the tongue. You have to use improvisational skills different words might come out of my mouth. Ms. Lowe offered, You try to be a puppet for him as opposed to something that is a finished product and knowing this works. Its kind of walking on a tightrope, because you dont know (what will work) because its never been tried before, but thats also the exciting part of it, the fun and the danger of it. As the process continues, especially in the final weeks, the collaborative exploration of playwright, director and cast intensifies with awkward or unclear sections replaced. Research might seem to be a requirement for the actors, but its not as essential as people think because they are playing Mr. McDonoughs Dickinson and Poe, not the real people. Im starting to do some now, Mr. Weiner said a few weeks ago. But because its not a documentary style script, I may need maybe three or four facts from Poes life. For me, its more about capturing the point of view and whats happening in those moments. The historical information does not really apply. Obviously, I want to know the broad strokes and I read as much Poe as I can. I havent read much since high school and college and Ive loved his work. Its right up my alley. So I will be reading more about who he was. Ms. Lowe said, Research is my favorite part of a project. But this is the first time they said we dont want you to research. We worked on the script last week and now Im understanding why: It is Joes complete fantasy of these two people and his vision of it. But with the enigmatic Dickinson, her later research showed everyone has a different interpretation. Even reading her poetry, you have a very personal response. The only other risk is having names that are known and so revered and so loved and people expecting to see their previous perception, Ms. Lowe said. Hopefully, those people will come and have fun with it. Mr. Hayes agreed, The play is about finding and discovering your artistic self. Ill be happy if people walk out of the theater thinking about them in a different way.

General manager Ryan Zemel of the new Basque restaurant in West Palm Beachs Hotel Biba says the new concept is meant to play down the club atmosphere that has been the hotels reputation where food and drink are concerned. We want this to be an addition to the community, he said. A club takes away from that, especially in the residential neighborhood. The focus now is on Spanish chef Miguel Angel Rebolledo. We want the centerpiece to be (chef) Miguel and his cuisine. Hes putting out his food that youd fly somewhere to eat and doing it out of a food truck. Its not really a food truck, he says; the mobile kitchen the chef cooks from, parked on the street, has a larger stove than some restaurant kitchens, and a fryer, too. Hell use it for foods made to order on the line, while a closet-sized pantry off the bar inside is where cold food prep and desserts come together. A restaurant was never a part of the hotel, a historic property built in 1929, and one of the earliest motor lodges in the U.S. Adding a full kitchen would require serious architectural and structural modification thus, the mobile kitchen, Mr. Zemel said. The truck is the wave of the future of restaurants, he said. But the tapas-style small-plate menu is key to making it work. Chef Rebolledo, who sat to speak with us before prepping for the day, said he is counting on diners ordering plenty of sharing plates that can come out staggered, as they are cooked. Still, a few challenges are on the menu, he said. We have four paellas and nothing is cooked ahead. Everything is freshly made. But it takes only 20 minutes for the rice to cook. The traditional Catalonian paella is front and center but theres also a vegan version using cauliflower and vegetables, as well as the Valencia version, fideu, which uses broken noodles in place of rice along with seafoods. Florida foods are on the menu whenever possible Key West shrimp, clams from the East Coast area, and lionfish, a sweet-meat fish diners can pick at as it comes with the body on the plate. It is so good for us, and good for the environment if we eat them. They are an invasive species, the chef said. But they are delicious. Diners are encouraged to pick at the cheek meat and ribs of the bony carcass when the fish is brought to the table. Or they can say no thanks, and throw it away. He laughed. A few foods are being imported from Spain, including olive oils, Spanish cheeses and a bread that is 80 percent water. My friend who is gluten-free can eat this bread. The special wheat and the fact that its mostly water doesnt affect him, he said. He has a theory that since Spanish wheat is not genetically modified its outlawed in Europe the pure version is easier to digest and doesnt have the same effect on the body. Expect numerous menu surprises, including a few molecular dishes and untraditional versions of favorites, inspired by his former job at El Bulli, the restaurant Jose Andres made famous with lab-like creations. Foam, one of the hallmarks of El Bulli, is on the scallops that have been just kissed on a flattop, he said. Well have cheese spheres, and the baby beet salad, and a Spanish version of croquettas, he said. These are not the Cuban types, but more runny and flavor-filled, with a bchamel cooked inside the crumbcoated, fried chicken ball. Theres even kimchi involved: It cuts the fat, the chef says. We have the traditional gambas al ajillo shrimp cooked in garlic. Its flambed with beer, he says, instead of the traditional brandy. Even the flan is special. Just four ingredients eggs, milk, sugar and vanilla. Its like crme brle. It cooks in a low oven for six to seven hours surrounded by water. Its not so sweet as a Cuban flan, so diners arent expecting this. Once they taste it, they love it. Theres a rice-coco pudding foam atop one of the other desserts, a Lily Coco Peach, a vegan creation he is sure will fool most diners into thinking they are eating dairy. He likes the foams, as you get flavor from the puree but you dont get full. These are not simple dishes: they take a minimum of four to six hours just to prep. But they cook off quickly, and the results taste as he wants them to, he says, reflecting hours slaving over a stove for the results. I think people will enjoy something different.In briefYou may have missed it, but a new poke spot opened in West Palm Beach during the boat show. Pipeline Poke Co. serves poke, well known as a Hawaiian raw tuna bowl that is becoming a popular fast-casual healthy meal on the mainland. At Pipeline, its a build-your-own line where you order a base rice, salad, etc. then a protein with raw tuna being traditional, but shrimp or others possible. Add mix-ins such as edamame, avocado, or sprouts; a sauce (eel is traditional, but theres wasabi, cilantro lime and the spiciest lava), then toppings. Acai bowls also are available as are beer and wine. Pipeline is at 310 S. Dixie Highway, at Evernia Street, in West Palm Beach; check their Facebook page for more info. PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MARCH 29-APRIL 4, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15The Dish: Shrimp Dinner The Place: Buds Chicken & Seafood, 7912 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; 561588-8595 or The Price: $9.35 The Details: Buds is not the place Id think to go for a shrimp dinner. But I stopped there with a friend one evening and was pleasantly surprised at how beautifully plump and tender the shrimp were. There were eight large shrimp, lightly breaded and fried to perfection. The slaw was creamy and the corn fritters are like no others, slightly sweet, but not too sweet, and not at all greasy. Note to my doctor: No, I did not eat the fries. OK, I ate one or two, but I promise I did not eat all of them. And was too bad, because they were light and crisp. But there is only so much you can have of a good thing.

Olive Ave., West Palm Beach. 561-6552511; Johnny, the guy who brought the original coal fired pizza to downtown, still turns out some of the best pies in the area along with a healthy dose of his opinions. Go with the top seller: Johnnys New Yorker. Fresh mozzarella, fresh basil, Parmesan and extra virgin olive oil is all it needs. If you like it spicy, pick the Hot Pie: Pepperoni, Italian sausage, hot cherry peppers and onions. His real secret weapon though, is Umbertos clam pie. Just yum. 1 ANTHONYS COAL FIRED PIZZA2680 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens. 561-804-7777; For meat eaters, the meatball (FYI: you can buy them by the pot separately) and ricotta pie is a meal on a slice. Cooked to a crisp perfection and slightly charred, its all of it. The vegetarian roasted cauliflower dressed with olive oil and garlic, sprinkled with Romano and mozz and bread crumbs, is surprisingly good.3 COSTELLOS TRATTORIA1209 Main St., Jupiter. 561-776-5448; Family owned and friendly, this spot caters to big, lively groups who gather here after the games at Roger Dean Stadium. Theres a full Italian menu, but their pies are consistently good. You choose a thin or regular crust and build your own. Menu pies include BBQ Chicken an untraditional standout, but we like the very tasty Pesto Gourmet thin with plenty of pesto, garlic, artichoke hearts and strips of prosciutto.
