A2 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 26-MAY 2, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com COMMENTARYWeak and timid RepublicansWhen Dr. Ralph Reeds survey from the Faith & Freedom Coalition arrived in the mailbox of reader Bill Summerfield and his wife, Lois Hatcher, she almost hit the roof, as he put it. So Mr. Summerfield forwarded to me the survey of 10,000,000 American Voters on President Donald Trumps Agenda for America. It has a primary goal: to apply pressure on the many weak and timid Republicans in Congress who are cowering in the corner and who drag their heels on President Trumps agenda for America thinking this will help them curry favor with the dishonest news media and Left who are stopping at nothing to destroy President Trump. What an experience, reading Reeds Chicken-Little survey. It offered Mr. Summerfield, Ms. Hatcher and 9,999,998 other Christian voters leading questions that seem to suggest the sky is falling. Questions like this: How important is it to you for President Trump to quickly reverse and undo all government regulations (many enacted by Obama) that punish Christians for practicing and living their Christian faith? (Fact: Christians, Muslims, Jews and everybody else practice their faith freely in this society. Still.) Or this: What is your opinion ofPresident Trump UNDO(ing) all of President Obamas Executive Orders that attack Christians, attack religious freedom, attack the family, and attack common sense? (Fact: presidential orders dont attack Christians or religious freedom or families. They may or may not show common sense thats arguable.) Or this: President Trump is now moving criminal aliens out of America He has terminated Barack Obamas deadly nonenforcement policies that allow thousands of criminal aliens to freely roam our streets What is your opinion? (Fact: Apprehension of illegal immigrants, and deportations, were higher during President Obamas administration than ever before or since.) Or this: We must move quickly before the anti-Christian, anti-family, anti-freedom Left has a chance to regroup ... We also know how timid many conservative members of Congress are in the face of all the attacks by the media and the Left. Move quickly is a euphemism for Give Me Your Money. Calling his survey, this 90-day emergency campaign, Dr. Reed offers 10 million Americans a chance to put their money in his pocket, by checking the biggest box they can in the amount of $15, $20, $30, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1,000 (or even) my best gift $ ... Old Ralph doesnt mess around. He kicks a whole fire-ant hill of Republicans by calling them, weak and timid. I wonder how that will go over with some of the Republicans I know? They arent weak, they arent timid and they certainly arent stupid. As it turns out, Dr. Reed holds a Ph.D. in history from Emory University, the same place former Republican House leader and presidential candidate Newt Gingrich got his. And he has a history himself. He spent part of his youth in Miami before attending the University of Georgia to earn an undergraduate degree in history. As an editor for the universitys student newspaper, he was kicked off the staff for plagiarism. Later, he headed the famous Christian Coalition from 1989 to 1997, but quit when the IRS and the Federal Election Commission started investigating the organizations finances. As the millennium turned, Dr. Reed became part of lobbyist Jack Abramoffs scheme to bribe public officials and cheat his clients Abramoff went to jail. Implicated but never charged, Dr. Reed earned a lot of money from native Americans. The Choctow Tribe in Alabama paid Reed $1.2 million at one point to advance its gambling interests. The money came through a third party, at his request, so it wouldnt be apparent to a conservative Christian base that he was championing gambling, according to a final report from the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs. Although he sought a lieutenant governor seat in Georgia after that, the GOP leadership ultimately dropped him. So he founded the Faith & Freedom Coalition, relying heavily, perhaps, on what hed learned at the Leadership Institute, a nonprofit agency that teaches conservative Americans how to influence policy through direct participation, activism and leadership, and how to succeed in politics, government and the media. Presumably by lying, if necessary. Among other graduates are Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Mitch McConnell, along with other politicians and lobbyists. He described Faith & Freedom this way not long after hed founded it in 2009: Sort of a 21st century version of the Christian Coalition on steroids, married with Moveon. org, with a sprinkling of the NRA. Jesus, guns and politics. Thats always been a fertile combination for irrational, angry, self-righteous con artists. Dr. Reed is such a figure himself, a strident polemicist who believes lies are useful tools for achieving any end in political life. His pitch is both cynical and cancerous to a democratic republic in which disagreement and conversation are traditional strengths, not traitorous weaknesses. But real conversation, and for that matter healthy disagreement, depend on participants who try to accept and marshal facts, not misrepresentations. One of the survey questions that irritated Bill Summerfield and Lois Hatcher the most, they said, was No. 14: President Trump says he will END the anti-Christian, anti-American so-called COMMON CORE curriculum produced by the U.S. Department of Education under President Obama. Ms. Hatcher taught public school for 40 years. As she and her husband pointed out in a note, common core didnt come from the U.S. Department of Education. The idea came from a group of governors. It was supported by both Republicans (former Gov. Jeb Bush was one of its chief champions) and Democrats. Like it or not, its a bipartisan American invention, some say intervention, designed to make us better as a people. Like telling the truth. Semih Arif Ozdemir owns Agora Mediterranean Kitchen in West Palm Beachs Northwood district (in background).It was not his original aim in life to own and operate a Turkish restaurant, but the transition has been a smooth and successful one for Semih Arif Ozdemir, proprietor of Agora Mediterranean Kitchen in the Northwood section of West Palm Beach. After graduating from college I was a mechanical engineer and an economist, Mr. Ozdemir said. I was involved in a medical business and I did finance as part of a real estate business. But I soon realized there was not a good Turkish restaurant anywhere in the Northwood area and decided to open one. It was a good move for Mr. Ozdemir, who started up Agora Mediterranean Kitchen five years ago. Since then the reviews have been impressive, with number one rankings on TripAdvisor and Yelp. The Mediterranean diet has become the most popular diet because it is so healthy, he said. We use a lot of olive oil in our cooking, as well as the freshest ingredients to prepare our meals. Not a lot of people know about Turkish cuisine, so I try to make my restaurant customers feel as if they are at home, eating together. Thats why we call it kitchen. Now we have a lot of fans around Florida and even around the world. Mr. Ozdemir credits his mother for inspiring his appreciation of Turkish food. She is a very good cook and makes delicious healthy food, he said. And In the kitchen with...Semih Arif Ozdemir, Agora Mediterranean Kitchen, West Palm Beach when I first came over to the United States I worked for a catering company. When I invited the owners over to my house for dinner, they tried my moms food and loved it so much so, in fact, that they organized some Turkish dinners themselves. Thats when I first started to think about how a good Turkish restaurant could be successful. The menu is inspired by a variety of Mediterranean specialties with a special focus on Turkish preparations, he added. Turkish cuisine and Greek cuisine are very similar, but we dont stop there, he said. Weve added Middle Eastern dishes as well. Because of its location, Turkey is the bridge to all countries, all continents and all religions. And our food reflects that. Agora Mediterranean Kitchen promotes locally sourced ingredients and caters to a variety of dietary options by including a wide array of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free dishes as well as traditional Turkish fare. The menu emulates this, offering everything from your basic burger to Izgara Kofte which consists of grilled meatballs with rice and crispy greens. Our most popular dishes right now are the Grilled Aegean Octopus and the Red Snapper en Papillote Mr. Ozdemir said. Also, our Mixed Grill Platter is a delicious combination of all the meats on our menu char grilled chicken shish, chicken on flat, gyro and Izgara Kofte, served with rice and grilled vegetables. But dont order these until youve tried our Mezes, or appetizers, first. Cold Mezes range from Spicy Feta, Babaganoush and Violet Artichokes (braised in olive oil and fresh lemon juice) to the Just Aegean Dips (Hummus, Eggplant Salad, Cacik, and Pink Sultan served on warm pita bread) and the Agora Signature Sampler (Imam Bayildi, Dolma, Spinach Delight, Piyaz and Braised Leeks served with pickles, olives and warm pita bread). Hot Mezes vary from the Zucchini Pancake and the Spinach Delight to the Warm Hummus and the Grilled Octopus. When hes away from his restaurant, Mr. Ozdemir enjoys Mexican food, particularly fajitas and burritos, because their spices remind him of those used in the Turkish cuisine he loves. He also likes Japanese sushi, Chinese food and Thai dishes. But I will always focus mainly on Turkish food, because it is the cuisine of my childhood and my family, he said. And we have a family feeling here, by the way. Im not the boss and they are not my employees. We are family. We eat together and drink together. If Im away from the restaurant for a few days I begin to miss it, because Im away from my brothers and sisters. Semih Arif Ozdemir Original Hometown: Ankara, Turkey Restaurant: Agora Mediterranean Kitchen, 2505 N. Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach. We serve dinner everyday 5 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. We also do catering. For more information, call 561-6517474 or to make a reservation visit agorakitchenwpb.com. Mission: To introduce locals to Turkish cuisine and eventually open more restaurants of this kind around the country. Cuisine: Turkish Training: No formal training in cuisine. Trained as a mechanical engineer; also worked on the business side of medicine and in real estate. What advice would you give someone who wants to be a restaurateur or chef? You have to like what you are doing. You also need to have a good team. ADVERTORIAL

OPINIONRyan gets out while the gettings goodIn Washington politics, rarely does anybody fully mean what he or she says. But few who know Paul Ryan doubt that hes sincere when he explains that hes abandoning his all-consuming job as House speaker to spend much more time with his wife, Janna, and their three kids. Believe it when he says hes not running for re-election to Congress because hes longing to be more than a Saturday dad. So, hell be going home to Janesville, Wis., as a private citizen next year. However, another reality in Washington is that there usually is more to the story. The speaker is immensely powerful on paper, being second in line for presidential succession and leading the House of Representatives. But leading this group of House Republicans is an exercise in frustration. True, they hold a majority in Congress, but thats illusory. In fact, the GOP is badly split between conservatives, extremists and wackos. Trying to please them all is impossible. They run roughshod over each other as often as they do the hapless Democrats. All too often, the roughshodee is Paul Ryan even though he has a longstanding reputation as an ambitious man who has been able to have it both ways, a harsh but reasonable-appearing rightwinger. But now he wants to step off for a while, or at least have it appear that he is. Now that Donald Trump has taken over, Ryans survival skills dictate that he embrace the president at the same time he keeps him at arms length. Thats exhausting, and increasingly difficult, particularly since Trump has this tendency to go kablooey as the walls close in. And theyre closing in. Special counsel Robert Muellers investigation is grinding on, and POTUS is in a tizzy. Hes lashing out, and who knows what hell do as the pressure builds. Washington is not the place to be for someone who wants to position himself as a leader of the I told you so gang after the kablooey really hits the fan. Ryans hometown is about as not Washington as any place can be to escape the splatter. Besides, in Speaker Ryans case, he certainly has calculated that the time has come to get out while the gettings good. Its no fun being a minority leader, and its looking like the GOP might just lose control of the House. Forty-plus Republican members are exiting stage right, or being forced out because of scandals. If the Democrats avoid the tendency to squander their own momentum and actually assume the majority, Donald Trumps presidency might well be toast, particularly if Mueller lowers the boom or Trump lowers it on himself. Meanwhile, back under the Capitol Hill big top, the circus will become a political freakshow as those Paul Ryan left behind try not to look like clowns as they maneuver to replace him. The difficulty is to break out the long knives while not appearing to be a crude backstabber. But now Paul Ryan can be above all that. If you dont think all of this has occurred to Ryan, I have some dairy land in Wisconsin I can sell you. Soon, he will be back in Janesville with the family. He insists that he wont run for office again. Dont bet on it. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. No one likes a prig with an ax to grindJames Comey did it, naturally, for the children. Why does anyone in Washington take advantage of the most opportune moment to make a mint off publishing a tell-all book? Its never for the profits or the sheer satisfaction of sticking it to your enemies and putting yourself in the best possible light. No, theres always some ostensible higher cause. For the former FBI director, its demonstrating, through his own sterling example, what ethical leadership is, especially to young people. That the nations youth will be riveted to their TV screens in coming weeks, watching Comeys exquisitely thoughtful gymnastics of self-justification, and conclude that this is how to conduct themselves when they inherit the baton of the countrys leadership seems extremely unlikely. James Comey has managed the seemingly impossible. The former FBI director is locked in a death struggle with an unpopular president who makes even his allies cringe with his belittling nicknames, foolish threats and strange view of the presidency and somehow it is Comey who is coming away as the unlikable one. Thats because no one likes a prig, especially when he has an ax to grind. Comey has good reason to disdain Donald Trump, who fired him in humiliating circumstances and whose warped view of the Justice Department as an institution for the protection of the president is rightly anathema to him. Comey is just the latest of Trumps adversaries, though, who are diminished by the president dragging them down to his level and exposing their weaknesses. Every Washington memoir portrays its author as the smartest guy in the room; Comey is the most ethical guy in the room, and he lets us know it. Underneath the high-mindedness is a thirst for petty revenge. He says he took note of the size of Trumps hand when they first met smaller than his. He goes out of his way to say Trump looks like he wears tanning goggles. Is all fair in a struggle with a president who calls you a slime ball? Maybe. But this is another instance of the country not being well-served by the president or his opponents violating norms. Its not a healthy precedent for former FBI directors to attack presidents they served, even if briefly in terrible circumstances. It doesnt do the standing of our law enforcement and intelligence institutions any good to have the men recently entrusted with leading them, like James Comey and John Brennan, brand themselves as committed partisans almost immediately upon leaving government. Its understandable that Comey wants to get his side out. But hes already done that in his extensive memos that he made sure to leak upon his firing and in his congressional testimony. Hell probably have his moment in the sun again as a key witness in the Robert Mueller matter, depending on how it shakes out. Yet none of that is as remunerative as cashing in as a hero of the resistance when the Mueller investigation is perhaps at peak intensity. Nothing is better than being the most righteous guy in the room while still getting a huge payday. Children, take note.

KATIE KREISChiropractic Physician Full Physical Therapy Facility PET TALESGut feeling BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationFrom the time Ana was young, she had intestinal problems. When she was only 5 months old, she suffered severe vomiting and diarrhea and wouldnt eat or drink. Instead she tried to eat nonfood items such as toys, cords and paint on the wall. We thought she was going to die. When she should have been gaining about 6 pounds, she lost about 6 pounds, says Anas owner, Tracy Weber, of Seattle. To help Ana thrive, Weber cooked special meals for the German shepherd puppy and tried different proteins and supplements. Nothing worked. When I called the vet and said, What do we try next? she suggested a fecal transplant.The gastrointestinal tract houses a complex collection of microorganisms known as the microbiome. They play a crucial role in health not just of the gut, but of the entire body, including regulating the immune system. Microbiome population is affected by factors such as diet, antibiotics and gastrointestinal disease, and healthy animals have a highly individual microbiota. Weber didnt know much about fecal microbiota transplants (FMT), and she didnt like the idea of implanting another dogs poop into her dogs gastrointestinal tract. But the more she researched it, the more she thought it would be worth a shot. Fecal transplants are a rare instance of a treatment used first in humans and then in dogs and cats. In humans, FMT has been successful in treating 90 to 98 percent of recurring Clostridium difficile infections, leading to normalization of the microbiome. Clinical signs resolve within one to two days. For inflammatory bowel disease, though, the success rate is much lower, only 25 to 30 percent. Nicknamed re-poopulation, FMT involves transplanting fecal material from a known healthy dog with good digestion, no parasites and no treatment with antibiotics for at least the previous three months. The process begins by blending the feces and separating out the solids. What remains is a soupy mixture of probiotic and fecal material that, for Ana, was administered as an enema into the colon. Another protocol involves inserting the material into the gut through a nasogastric tube, and one company offers an oral fecal transplant capsule. Ana did not need to be sedated during the procedure. Afterward, she had to remain crated for six hours to give the microbes time to settle in to their new environment. Patients may be given loperamide (Imodium) to reduce the likelihood of a bowel movement. It took several weeks before Weber saw improvement in Anas appetite and chronic diarrhea, but the pica the tendency to eat nonfood items disappeared the same day as the fecal transplant. The transplant was repeated when the pica reappeared. The number of fecal transplants required varies in both dogs and humans, probably depending on how difficult it is for gut microbes to stay alive in a specific digestive tract. In his lecture on the intestinal microbiome at the 2018 Veterinary Meeting and Expo, Texas A&M University veterinary microbiologist Jan S. Suchodolski says that in some patients, fecal transplants are repeated up to three times every three to four weeks. The procedure decreased the imbalance of microorganisms (known as dysbiosis) in most dogs, although a subset had no improvement. I have colleagues who say 70 percent of patients get better, and I have colleagues who say zero percent get better, Dr. Suchodolski said. Of Ana, Weber says, In general, (the transplants) have helped, but we may do a third with a different donor dog. Do fecal transplants have potential for other health benefits? At Ontario Veterinary College in Canada, Shauna Blois, DVM, is investigating the benefit of fecal transplants for dogs with inflammatory bowel disease. And last year, researchers at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine discovered a relationship between the brain, the gastrointestinal tract, and immune system diseases. The finding could have implications for treatment of certain immune and neurologic diseases as well as diseases of the gastrointestinal trac.

HEALTHY LIVINGTaking steps to identify, treat depressionKatie did not know how she would face the day. Lately, everything had become such a monumental effort. But, just as she did every single morning, Katie pushed through her malaise, and willed herself to get up. Katie rarely gave herself permission to deviate from a stringent early morning workout and diet regimen, but today she just didnt have the stamina to exert herself. However, the critical voices in Katies head were now making her pay the price admonishing her for sleeping through the alarm and canceling her weekly bootcamp class. The self-doubts and fears were especially virulent. Despite her gut-wrenching anxiety, Katie found the wherewithal to pull herself together to arrive on time at work, dressing impeccably with a stylish, professional presence. Katie was even able to smile and banter with her coworkers, acting like she didnt have a care in the world. Most of Katies coworkers and friends admired her, believing her to be a sunny, well-adjusted individual. None would have ever guessed that Katie, not only suffered a gripping sense of anxiety, but an internalized pressure to be perfect and well under control. They would be floored to know the depth of her despair. Appearances can be deceiving. Have you ever made assumptions about a friend or coworker, only to discover later on that you had been terribly misguided about their circumstances? Have you ever found yourself, just like Katie in the fictionalized vignette above, for cing yourself to make those Herculean efforts necessary to convince those around you that all was well? Have you ever struggled valiantly to hold it together, fearful of what others would think, if they only knew the full story? What we dont often consider is the lengths that some people will go to keep their sadness hidden, hoping that those around them wont suspect that anything is wrong because they may fear that the stigma will be too strong if they admit they are struggling. Even though this person might be smiling outwardly, internally, she or he may be feeling ashamed and worthless. Ironically, these may be the very folks we envy, assuming they have it all. Many of us carry stereotyped assumptions about the symptoms of depression. We may assume that these individuals might present with symptoms that are visibly obvious to us all: sluggish, weighted down signs of sadness, perhaps with a blunted demeanor and a noted withdrawal from social engagement. We might expect to see noticeable weight gain or loss, or a disheveled appearance, evidence of low self-esteem, and/or negative thought patterns. Oftentimes, these individuals fall under the diagnostic category: Major Depressive Disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, DSM-5 (the standard classification of mental disorders, edited by the American Psychiatric Association, and widely referred to by mental health professionals throughout the U.S.) However, there are many people whose symptoms dont necessarily fit neatly into traditional diagnostic categories listed in DSM-5. Lately, an unofficial term has been touted in many circles, including articles for the lay public and mental health blogs: High Functioning Depression. High-functioning depression (HFD) isnt a true medical diagnosis, but the term can be quite descriptive in better helping us understand the challenges of individuals like Katie, who may have serious struggles but who fly under the radar screen of those around them who might be able to offer them emotional support. Oftentimes, though, these folks dont have a full grasp, themselves, of what they are going through. They may know there is something terribly wrong. But, they may feel isolated and lonely, perhaps believing that the misery they feel is theirs alone. They may mask their pain by overworking, distracting themselves with technology, or abusing substances. They may find themselves becoming both mentally and physically exhausted. Their condition may affect their sleep patterns, either making it difficult to sleep, or that they sleep excessively. They are often individuals with a lot of determination, who struggle silently, while enduring significant symptoms: without asking for help. Those with HFD may set impossibly high standards for themselves, and may become self-critical and despondent, when they fall short of their expectations. They may carry an internal dialogue of negativity, and find relentless fault with others, the world at large, and especially with themselves. They may be wracked with excessive, unrelenting anxiety and self-doubt. But, sadly, those who are suffering often discount their own feelings and brush them aside. As an aside, many of those who have been referred to as HFD, may be suffering from what is described in the DSM-5 as Persistent Depressive Disorder (formerly referred to as dysthymia), a lowergrade of depression, that can be marked by fatigue, lagging energy and a general sense of unhappiness that may last for most of the day, and which has persisted for two or more years. A serious concern is that, if left untreated, HFD, or dysthymia, can potentially segue into Major Depressive Disorder. So, how can we identify those who suffer from HFD? People with HFD are often under so much internal pressure, its not uncommon for them to have a crack in their carefully pulled together armor. Paying attention to unexpected mood shifts, irritability or angry outbursts that seem excessive to the situation, could be an important clue. They may have trouble letting things go. Showing interest in the well-being of our friend, family member or coworker is a first step. Letting them know we care, and that we are concerned about them, might create a climate where they will be inclined to open up. Support from others reminds a person with depression that theyre not alone. Ultimately, securing an accurate diagnosis, will be a major step in helping a person with HFD to feel better. A multipronged approach to treatment, including psychotherapy and/or medication, is often the most effective. However, lifestyle changes such as eating a wel-balanced diet, getting regular exercise, meditation, avoiding alcohol and/ or cigarettes, possibly switching from a demoralizing job, and most of all, being with supportive close friends and family members can make a big difference, as well. An effective plan may involve some trial and error, but eventually, treatment interventions can be quite effective.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 26-MAY 2, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY HEALTHY LIVINGPredicting potential for pain may aid battle against opioid abuse THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAAs health-care providers and policymakers look for ways to address opioid misuse, knowing who might be at risk for developing chronic pain could be an important tool for prevention. A new University of Florida study has pinpointed patient characteristics associated with long-term musculoskeletal pain. Researchers say the information could help physical therapists and other clinicians identify at-risk patients and better tailor treatments to control their pain and potentially limit prescription of opioid medications for pain. The UF scientists found that patients who had greater initial pain, a higher number of other health problems, additional symptoms from other body systems and more pain-related psychological distress were more likely to continue to have pain one year after treatment. The findings appear in the newest edition of the journal Physical Therapy. Musculoskeletal pain is very common and one of the leading causes of disability, said Jason Beneciuk, Ph.D., D.P.T., M.P.H., a research assistant professor in the department of physical therapy in the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions, part of UF Health. Being able to predict who will develop long-standing musculoskeletal pain will allow for better use of nonpharmacological treatment options, such as physical therapy. The UF study was designed to test the capability of a variety of screening tools for predicting persistent pain. The study included more than 400 patients receiving physical therapy for low back, neck, knee or shoulder pain at nine health care centers across the country. Assessments included a measure of pain intensity, a history of previous medical diagnoses and two newly developed screening tools created by a UF pain research team. One asked patients to report symptoms they were experiencing in other systems of the body, including cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, endocrine, nervous, pulmonary and musculoskeletal. The second tool screened for pain-related psychological issues, including depressive symptoms, fear, anxiety and pain catastrophizing, which is characterized by beliefs that pain will worsen or nothing can be done to stop it. They also screened for positive emotions, such as self-efficacy and pain acceptance. Patients completed the screening tools before treatment and four weeks, six months and one year later. The number of physical therapy treatments patients received varied, but averaged eight to 10 sessions over four to six weeks. Treatment was not standardized across patients. At the one-year mark, 36 percent of patients were still experiencing persistent musculoskeletal pain. These patients had higher levels of pain at baseline, a greater number of other health problems and more pain-related psychological distress. The long-term pain predictors were the same across patients being treated for low back, neck, knee and shoulder pain. Although it is too early in the research to offer treatment recommendations for high-risk patients, future recommendations could potentially include increased monitoring, structuring treatment to take into account multiple health conditions and/or teaching patients pain coping skills, Mr. Beneciuk said. The value of independenceExcellent health care that focuses on the needs of our communityThey say that all politics is local. I believe the same can be said of health care. It is delivered locally and as a result, it should reflect the specific needs of the community it serves. As the new president and CEO of Jupiter Medical Center, I am proud to lead a team that provides exceptional care and service to our friends and neighbors in Jupiter and the surrounding communities in South Florida. When I considered joining Jupiter Medical Center, I was drawn to the organizations mission as a private, independent, not-for-profit medical center at the forefront of delivering todays medicine. I was equally impressed with its commitment to working for the community it serves. Today at Jupiter Medical Center, we operate from a position of strength built on world-class excellence. We remain focused on expanding our clinical services and continuing to enhance the delivery of compassionate care. The landscape of health care remains ever changing and always challenging. As more and more national health care systems merge or acquire hospitals across the region, you might wonder why you should care. The truth is, independent hospitals offer something unique that should not be overlooked. As a stand-alone, not-for-profit medical center, Jupiter Medical Center is able to affect change in the manner we think is best for our community without answering to a faraway board or shareholders focused on stock dividends. This enables us to maintain a fierce commitment to our mission to provide the best care right here in our community by delivering the specific services that our neighbors need and want. The administrative and clinical leaders of the hospital and many of our trustees are proud neighbors and members of this community. Jupiter Medical Center is not only where we work, it is where we maintain our health and that of our family members. Together, we have our fingers on the pulse of local health care needs. Like our neighbors, many of us have benefitted firsthand from the compassionate care Jupiter Medical Center provides. It is no wonder our patient satisfaction scores are the best in the area and better than state and national averages. We believe that people in this region deserve access to the very best care in their own community. Jupiter Medical Center earned four stars for Overall Quality from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and we are ranked among the best in the nation for risk-adjusted mortality in the 99th percentile according to CMS. Additionally, Jupiter Medical Center is ranked in the top 5 percent in the country for preventing hospital-acquired infections according to Quantros, a leading health care analysis and software provider. In addition, Jupiter Medical Center works with some of the best doctors in the region, many of whom were fellowship-trained at leading medical centers around the country. These physicians deliver cutting-edge treatment in a wide variety of medical disciplines, including radiology, cardiology, oncology and orthopedics. We also continue to expand to ensure that we provide the programs and services that our community requires. Within the next year, we will open a flagship cancer institute, inaugurate an open-heart surgery program, establish a comprehensive stroke program, and open a new pediatric emergency room. The level of care we provide is enhanced through partnerships we have formed with other leading institutions. For example, our collaboration with Mount Sinai Heart New York and Nicklaus Childrens Hospital allow our physicians to actively consult with doctors on cases and work together to share best practices and implement care protocols. We also share educational opportunities for physicians, nurses and other clinical staff. These partnerships impact patient care and have real benefits both clinical and strategic and still allow us to remain independent as a stand-alone, not-for-profit hospital. For almost 40 years, Jupiter Medical Center has been focused on serving our community, and in turn, the community has faithfully supported our medical center. Today, our community support has never been greateras evidenced by our strong philanthropic support and our high patient satisfaction scores. I look forward to leading Jupiter Medical Center in the years ahead. I believe that we are most effective and that we serve our community at the highest level as a stand-alone, independent medical center. Don McKenna became the new president and chief executive officer of Jupiter Medical Center in January 2018. donMCKENNAPresident and Chief Executive Officer of Jupiter Medical Center Nerve Pain? Nerve Damage?Question: What Treatments are available and how can Laser treatment help Neuropathy? Answer: Unfortunately, the only treatment available in traditional medicine are Neurontin (Gabapentin), Cymbalta and Lyrica. These medications are anticonvulsants and antidepressants. Fortunately, Laser therapy is the best treatment available today for nerve pain and pathology. Photomodulation with laser can increase blood flow, increase collateral circulation in the tissue, as well as stimulate peripheral nerve regeneration. The laser treatments are effective at removing pain, numbness, tingling and even balance loss. The results achieved with Super Pulsed Laser therapy are long term and totally free of pain and side effects. Question: Are treatments expensive? Answer: Laser therapy is very affordable. The cost per treatment varies from $100$150.ADVERTISEMENT MIRACULOUS EFFECTS OF LASER THERAPY FOR PAINJoseph A.

And are there alternatives to traditional string floss? Answer: Floss only the teeth youd like to keep. It really is a key habit to ensure good oral health and prevent cavities. A toothbrush simply cannot reach the plaque and food particles stuck between our teeth, so we need to floss to get at it. Simple brushing is even less effective for those with braces, which introduce countless new hard-to-reach crevices where bacteria can hide. As necessary as flossing is, it can still seem like a hassle. Thats why were so excited that old-fashioned flossing isnt the only option. One of my favorite alternatives to traditional floss is the Waterpik Water Flosser, the first powered interdental cleaner to earn the American Dental Associations seal of approval. I highly recommend this as an option especially if you are not going to floss. You can purchase them at retailers like Costco, Rite Aid, Kohls or even on Amazon. The Cordless version is good for those with limited countertop space or if you travel often, as this is easy to pack. ADVERTISEMENT KEEPING YOUR TEETH HEALTHYDr. David W.

SUNFEST / COURTESY PHOTOThe Ford stage will draw such acts as The String Assassins, Sublime With Rome, Ice Cube and PItbull. SunFest offers music under the palms along the waterfront.
Even by 1996, I think SunFest was still mostly a community-based event that primarily drew people from this area, Mr. Jamieson says. Weve certainly grown since then. We had people from 30 different countries, every state in America, and 220 cities in Florida outside of Palm Beach County here last year. Weve become a national and international destination, while maintaining that community flavor, thanks to a board, staff and volunteer base of people who are all incredibly hard-working and dedicated. The initial SunFest jazz quotient has waned over the years, particularly since 2012, in favor of popular music. This years lineup is heavy on reggae, rock and pop, with a hip-hop undercurrent. People here love reggae, says Mr. Jamieson. Its a South Florida thing, and we have both up-and-coming and old-school reggae acts like Toots and the Maytals. As far as hip-hop, it became the most consumed form of music in the country in 2017, and we have Ice Cube and 311, a band that always draws well and has hip-hop elements. And pop acts like Nick Jonas, and classic rock bands like Living Colour, are also a draw. Still, there will always be some people whose idea of classic rock is the Doobie Brothers [who appeared in 2002], and others who wonder why we dont have country music. Which is where all the other festivals, like the recent Okeechobee and Tortuga events, come in. Artists cant play both SunFest and one of those because of routing and proximity. Its a balance of trying to give everyone what they want while realizing that you cant always achieve that. For the first time in decades, this years SunFest will downshift from a five-day to a four-day format. For almost its first 10 years, SunFest was a four-day event, Mr. Jamieson says. And to be candid, going back to that has a lot to do with the cost of the talent we strive for having escalated dramatically in recent years. So we did it because we didnt want to reduce the quality of the talent, or significantly raise our ticket prices, which have always been very reasonable. Our fourday pass still costs less than some single concert tickets cost elsewhere. SunFest drew 175,000 patrons last year, although Mr. Jamieson expects those numbers may drop slightly with one less day of the festival. Still, that also makes it one of the larger waterfront music and art events in the Southeastern United States, although not every artist booked necessarily recognizes the SunFest name at first glance. Take Nick Wold, the Seattle-born lead vocalist and guitarist for New York Citybased pop trio Dreamers, which plays SunFest for the second time (the first was 2015) on May 4 before Los Angeles rock institution Incubus closes the night on the Tire Kingdom Stage. Id never heard of SunFest until we got booked, Mr. Wold says. But once we read up on it, we got very excited to play there. Asked which artists Mr. Jamieson is most excited to see and hear this year, he offers up several. Im looking forward to seeing Logic, the Thursday, May 3 closer on the Ford Stage, he says. Hes just starting to break out. Six months from now, people will be sorry if they missed that show. I like everything that night. We had Billy Idol a couple years ago, and Girl Talk a few years ago, and both put on strong shows. On Friday, May 4, Nathaniel Rateliff is super talented, and Incubus is a band weve tried to get for a long time and finally landed. For Saturday, May 5, Im most excited to see Ice Cube. He doesnt do that many live performances. On Sunday, May 6, I know Pitbull will put on a great show, but DNCE and PartyNextDoor will be a lot of fun, too.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF APRIL 26-MAY 2, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Lords Place SleepOut raises more than $600,000Some of them were rich, others not so rich. But more than 600 area residents turned out for The Lords Place 11th annual SleepOut in West Palm Beach. The event, held April 6 at the United Methodist Church of the Palm Beaches, included a program of word and song celebrating the success stories of men, women and families who have worked their way out of homelessness through The Lords Places programs and services. Palm Beachers participating in SleepOut this year included The Lords Place Board Chairman Cornie Thornburgh, past chairman Pamela McIver with husband Brian McIver, along with Rev. Bob Norris of the Royal Poinciana Chapel, Diana Barrett and Bob Vila, Don Mintmire, Laurie and Gordon Batchelor, Jamie Star, Regina Porten, Tim Jones, Annie Cardelus, Heidi Green and Michael Kluger, among others. During the program, The Lords Place CEO Diana Stanley announced that more than 900 contributions from nearly 50 teams had helped the agency surpass its SleepOut fundraising goal of $300,000 for a total of $311,000. At that moment, The Lords Place board member Ann Brown stepped onto the stage to make the surprise announcement that she and her husband, Don Brown, would match that amount. The audience jumped to its feet to applaud their generosity. It wasnt the first time this couple had made such an impact. Last year at The Lords Place SleepOut, I stood up and announced that my husband and I would match every penny that was raised that night. Again this year we were so taken by all the people attending all races and creeds, rich and poor, old and young, the chronically homeless, the unemployed and the highly successful all laughing and crying and applauding together: a true cross-section of life itself, Mrs. Brown said. Don and I could not resist, as we felt all those same emotions once again. So again, I stood up and, with great joy, announced that we would match the $311,000 that had been raised. Nothing means more to us than helping the needy get out of poverty and homelessness. The program came to a close with the standing-room-only audience participating in a candlelight ceremony to commit themselves to helping The Lords Place break the cycle of homelessness. Following the program, hundreds slept out overnight. A closing reflection was led at dawn by The Lords Place Board Member Rev. Dr. Bob Norris. Others who couldnt join SleepOut onsite opted to SleepIN at their home or in their neighborhood. We are so grateful for every one of the more than 900 individual donors, and our generous sponsors, who all helped us meet and exceed our SleepOut goal this year, said Ms. Stanley. We arent all in a position to make a major gift as the Browns have so generously done, but it is heartening to know that so many care about the less fortunate among us and give what they can to enable The Lords Place to reach out a hand of hope to those we serve.

There are, after all, about 10 million people in the Sunshine State over 45, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, and half of them are men. Many can remember the original old-time barbershops, the ones that began to disappear in the 1960s. When they find one like that a modern take on once-upon-a-time they often appear to appreciate it. Walking into the All City Antique Barbers Shop is like stepping into another era with the sights, scents and styles of days gone by a simpler time when a shave and a haircut was also a social experience, says Alexis Lex Arellano, owner of the All City in West Palm Beach, in an online description. Old-time barbershops still offer a society of sorts to their patrons, a place where conversations and confidences can be shared freely and safely. Along with the amenities of yesteryear. Its the same full-service barbershop that your ancestors had with hot lather and steaming hot towels, Mr. Arellano adds, pointing out some other shop amenities, too a billiards table, yes, but also the inevitable nods to contemporary life: a flat-screen television and a gaming station. Some shops, a few lucky ones, even employ old-time barbers themselves men like Jim Gott, at 85 still cutting hair in Blakes Barbershop on West First Street in historic downtown Fort Myers. The son of a Minnesota barber, he joined the Navy and started cutting hair on a destroyer during the Korean War his father had sent him the tools, and before long both officers and men had abandoned the ships barber and were coming to Mr. Gott, he recalls. Finishing his wartime tour, he returned home, worked briefly in a Buick factory, and then took up his fathers profession. Mr. Gott has no plans to stop cutting hair until God tells me its time, he says. Fit, precise in his movements and deeply interested, he explains the work this way: Youre creating something in a haircut that can be done many different ways thats what makes an artist (a real barber) rather than just a regular person. And its very rewarding when youre talking to a different person from a different background with a different education or schooling and you talk to all those different types of people by the day. Out front of Blakes, the street is paved with bricks salvaged more than a decade ago that covered First Street when Thomas Edison periodically walked downtown from his home a half-mile to the west. Not only that, but Edison had his hair cut at Blakes before it was called Blakes, local historians say. Owners John Yeomans and Ruthann Yeomans, who bought Blakes in 1980 from Blake Landrum, a friend who had operated there for decades before that, have a restored 1920s barber pole out front and big, comfortable, antique barber chairs. Blakes is the oldest continuously operating business downtown, at 87 years and running. Mr. Yeomans himself is the son of a barber, and it was the last thing I ever thought Id do, hes recalled. After growing up in the City of Palms and graduating from college, he became a ski instructor for a time in Colorado, then returned to become a high school history teacher. But when his father began to falter, Mr. Yeomans stepped in to help. He made more money barbering than teaching, and he never looked back, he says. I was just telling some young people about Edison being in this shop, and they were like, Wow, so cool, says Yvette Mudrak, a Blakes stylist. That alone might be worth a visit to this shop, but Blakes offers a lot more than that. We offer customized care, Ms. Mudrak explains. We dont take you and rush you through. You can get a shave around the neck and around the ears, with shaving cream and hot towels. And we offer the care the old-time way by being careful and doing the job right, whatever the job calls for. Such solicitous work appeals to younger people too. In Naples at the Oldies Barbershop on Airport Pulling Road, owner Eric Medina offers the finest haircut or shave on Floridas Southwest coast! And thats without charging an arm and a leg, says David Jacobson, a 30-something patron who first stepped into a stylish place that offered a fine haircut and style for $90. Then he found Oldies. I sat for about five (minutes) on a walk-in. I kept thinking to myself, Wow everyone looks really good in the chair. When it was my turn, I realized why. These guys take the time to do it the right way. Its not fast, its art, and they are truly masters at their craft. I walked out delighted and for about the same price as I would have paid at (a franchise). The hot lather and straight-razor touches usually cost three times the price! Part of the appeal of these old-time shops is the conversation, the stories the kind once aimed at men alone. They have since become the provenance of both sexes. Doug Flanagan, who once worked as a blackjack dealer in Atlantic City but hated the hours, owns and operates the classic Kings Old-Time Barbershop. New Jersey born and raised, with a quick wit and a tolerance for the wide range of humanity likely to pass through his antique chairs, hes expanded the business through four good years. This year he brought the longtime owner of Barbaras Barbershop in Punta Gorda in with him; next year he hopes to maintain three other full-time barbers in the shop. He kicked off the business with the notion of antiquing it, he says of not only giving it an old-timey look, but using some of the real equipment. The chairs he found at an auction and bought them for $12 apiece. He started with the notion of a Formica-topped, 1950s-era greeting table up front, but then discovered a true antique secretarys desk once used in a barbershop, and bought that. He traveled to Wichita, Kan., to discover an 1890s-era metal ceiling. They wanted $500 for it, it was in lousy shape, so I walked out the door. But they chased me and shouted, How much will you give for it? I told them $200. Now its up in the shop. The barbering itself is work he likes, Mr. Flanagan says but he doesnt necessarily consider himself an artist. A craftsman, yes thats how he thinks of his own work, mostly regular haircuts and hot-towel shaves. A regular haircut for seniors at Kings is an astoundingly low $13. Mr. Flanagan talks to people, to anybody, in a straightforward manner. And theres a great magazine rack he even includes a 1939 copy of a Life magazine, reports Florida Weeklys Charlotte Editor Bob Massey, who is also from New Jersey and remembers the old-time shops. And one more thing, Mr. Massey adds: Every patron finishes with a hot towel just like in the good ol days.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 26-MAY 2, 2018 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE A15 BEHIND THE WHEELBMWs 430i convertible pays for premium privilegesBMW made a declaration a few years ago when it created the 4-Series. More than just the two-door version of the popular 3-Series, the new name was about creating a more premium experience, and this 430i convertible is the proof. Even if the two car lines have separate names, both the 3-Series and 4-Series share many design similarities. The hallmark twin-kidney grille has a dose of flair as chrome tabs connect it to sharpangled LED headlights. Theres a sleek body line that runs the full length and expertly incorporates the door handles. It ends with an unfussy rear that has a hint of integrated spoiler on the trunk. The 4-Series does get a bit more brightwork, sporty faux fender vents, and few extras, but there is no denying it shares the 3-Series DNA. The real distinction starts when its time to take the roof off. Theres just something alluring about a hardtop convertible. It carries a sleek coupe profile with a color-matched roof. When all the windows are rolled down, it has the cool pillar-less presentation that we learned to love on muscle cars. And the full roof neatly folds into the trunk when we want to be open to the world. This versatility comes at a cost $53,945 for the base model. While aiming for a more upscale market might just seem like snobbery, BMW has a genuine reason for aiming higher. The 2-Series is also a sports coupe/convertible line, and with only five inches less in its wheelbase, its a close sibling to the 4-series. The little brother has a traditional fabric roof, similar engines, and starts at 23 percent less than the 4-Series convertible. With this car occupying the lower end, the base 430i drop top doesnt need to start out basic. Inside it comes standard with 10-way power adjusting drivers seat, parking sensors and a nine-speaker HD stereo. The smart key system knows each assigned driver, and it adapts the drivers seat position, side mirrors, radio presets and dual zone climate control specifically to whoever enters the car. BMWs iDrive on-board computer system has become quite user friendly over the years. It now works in conjunction with the 6.5-inch display screen and steering wheel controls to regulate all aspects of the car from efficiency settings to the interior lighting preferences. The best part is when its not being used to compute minute details, this system has a split screen so that options like the satellite navigation and satellite radio info can share the same space.Adding on features is a tradition at BMW. The company offers a long list of extras that rivals a diners menu, and some of these features are worthwhile. The $1,100 head-up display not only has the speedometer, but it also works with the steering wheel fingertip controls to scroll through the radio presets. So, it really allows drivers to never take their eyes off the road. Also, when spending this much on a convertible, go ahead and splurge an extra $550 on a lookat-me metallic color like the Snapper Rocks Blue seen in the photo. One option box thats already checked on the 4-Series is the motor. While the 430i is the lowest level of the model line, the 3-Series models start one tier below. The 320i features a 2.0-liter turbocharged motor that makes 180 horsepower. BMW turns up the boost to create the 248 horsepower engine found in the 330i and our 430i test car. The lower-power 2.0 motor is a fine power plant, and it keeps BMWs tradition of sporting vehicles. But more is always better, and thus, the 4-series never even allows it under the hood in an effort to uphold its pure performance credentials. What this means in the real world is a very eager machine. The twin-scroll turbocharger is there to boost the 430i both from a stoplight and for passing on the highway. It works particularly well on the interstate, where power band feels like its only getting warmed up when reaching 70 mph (theres a good reason why the wind deflector is standard on this convertible.) And the level of stability while approaching illegal speeds is another reminder that BMW develops their cars with the high-speed Autobahn in mind. Its this solid all-around feeling that can win customers. There are 17 other less expensive convertibles out there today (including BMWs own 2-Series.) Some of these are also more powerful and/or roomier. But the 430is full chemistry of premium, power and poise delivers the kind of engineering thats at the soul of a proper BMW. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com Barrett-Jackson rings up $38.3 million in salesSpring is car season in Palm Beach, and thats thanks to the attention from the Barrett-Jackson auction. The 16th annual sale is as much as circus as it is an auto attraction they housed nearly 700 cars under big top tents. Barrett-Jackson is one of the more climactic auctions because nearly all vehicles have no reserve to meet. So when one of these vehicles gets on the block, we all know it will go home with someone new. In fact, only three cars had reserves. They all were exotic Italians, and none of them contributed to the $38.3 million in sales over the weekend. The headline going into the auction was Palm Beach County mega collector John Staluppi was offering 145 vehicles from his private stash known as Cars of Dreams. It was worth the extra attention, considering these sold for $13.96 million in total, including eight of the top 10 highest sellers. But the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach sale also is about more interesting and affordable classics. So while a genuine Herbie the Love Bug Volkswagen Beetle sold for nearly $130k, it was just as exciting to see a 1977 VW with only 116 total miles sell for $36,600. And although most people have never seen an Austin Gypsy, a hot-rodded version of this British-style Jeep sold for $32,450. Not too much dipped below $10k this year, but lovers of Corvettes or 1980s classics could find a few bargain basement items. Probably the most surprising value classics at the auction were an interesting crop of Japanese domestic market (JDM) offerings. This segment is growing rapidly as more interesting cars from across the Pacific become old enough to be legally imported. The proof is with more than a halfdozen examples of these right-hand drive cars, including a couple of coveted Nissan Skylines.The Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach sale seems to understand that variety is the spice of (automobile) life. And glamour and affordability add a little extra pepper. BY MYLES KORNBLATTmk@autominded.com PHOTOS BY MYLES KORNBLATT/FLORIDA WEEKLYLEFT: A 1960 Willys Jeep Surrey, with the fringe on the top.

A18 WEEK OF APRIL 26-MAY 2, 2018 FLORIDA WEEKLY ON THE LINKSUSGA visiting Jupiter Hills for Amateur Four-Ball ChampionshipThe USGA will be visiting the Jupiter Hills Club for the second time when it stages its fourth annual Amateur FourBall Championship, May 19-23, more than 30 years after the U.S. Amateur was played on the Hills course in August, 1987. It may be stretching geography a bit to say Jupiter Hills is in Palm Beach County. The mailing address is Tequesta but the club is a mile or so north of the Martin County line. But if that is good enough for the U.S. Postal Service, who are we to argue? Using the above rationale, there have been five USGA championships staged in Palm Beach County since 1963, with the Four-Ball followed by the Walker Cup at Seminole GC in May, 2021. Heres a quick summary: 1963, Senior Womens Amateur @ CC of Florida, won by Marion Choate. 1978, Senior Amateur @ Pine Tree GC, Keith Compton. 1987, U.S. Amateur @ Jupiter Hills Club, Billy Mayfair. 1992, Womens Mid-Amateur @ Old Marsh GC, Marion Maney-McInerey. 1992, Senior Amateur @ Loxahatchee Club a week later, won by Clarence Moore. In the Four-Ball, 36-hole qualifying is scheduled on the Hills and Village courses May 19-20. The Hills layout will be used the rest of the week for the match play competition: May 21, first round; May 22, second and third rounds; and May 23, semifinals and championship match. Previous sites for the Four-Ball: 2015, Olympic Club, San Francisco; 2016, Winged Foot GC, Mamaroneck, N.Y.; and 2017, Pinehurst, N.C., CC, Nos 2 and 8. Bandon Dunes in Oregon is up next in 2019. Volunteers are still needed at Jupiter Hills. For information, go to www.usga. org/fourball. Florida State GA: Two Juno Beach players tied for fourth at 221 in the 57th annual Senior Amateur at Mayacoo Lakes CC, West Palm Beach: 2014 champion Pete Williams and Michael Mercier. Bill Barnes of Bonita Springs won with a two-putt par-4 on the first extra hole, the 18th, edging Don Whittimore of Temple Terrace after they tied at 215. Moments earlier, Barnes saved double bogey at 18 after hitting his third shot into the pond in front of the green. Whittimore closed with 68, Barnes at 75. Donald Staton, Boca Raton, was second in the 65-older division at the eighth annual Super Seniors Championship at Buckhorn Springs CC in Valrico, beaten one stroke, 218 to 217, by Doug LaCrosse of Tampa, a former PGA Tour Champions player. Other age group winners were Jim Mason, Freeport, 70-74, 149; and Edward Craig Jr., Orlando, 75-over, 146. Jeffrey Horn, Boynton Beach, and Marc Dull, Winter Haven, tied for third in the 15th annual Senior/Mid-Amateur Four-Ball at Stone Creek GC in Ocala on 67-6532. Dull was the FSGA Player of the Year for 2017. The winners at 131 were Doug Snoap, Apopka, and Bob Campione, Palm Coast. It was Snoaps third win with as many different partners in the last eight years. Florida Womens State GA: Mary Jane Hiestand, Naples, won the Senior Amateur for the fourth time in the last six years, scoring 74-7448 at CC of Ocala. Other flight winners: Christine Hunt, Ponte Vedra Beach, super seniors, 158; Kristine Boogren, Coral Springs, senior field, 161; Linda Sturges, Oswego, N.Y., senior field first flight, 184; and Marla Flinn, Bradenton, super senior field, 164. The best PBC showing was by Kathy Baker of Wellington, fourth in super seniors on 164. Palm Beach County GA: David Abell of North Palm Beach won a PBCGA event for the first time since 2009 when he teamed with Matt Minister to capture the sixth annual Pricey Par 3 at Jupiter Dunes GC. Abell and Minister got the edge in a chip-off at the second extra hole after four teams tied at four under par 50. The others were Scott Turner, Stuart, and Greg Forest, West Palm Beach, the 2017 champions; John Powers, Delray Beach, and Greg OMahoney, Tequesta; and Terry Wittek, Jupiter, and Jeff Helfrich, Stuart. It was Abells seventh PBCGA title, including the 2005 County Amateur, the first for Minister. Apparently, Abell has recovered from a series of injuries that had sidelined him for several years. A week later, Turner edged Robbie Wight by two Stableford points, 86-84, in the 17th annual Tire Kingdom International on PGA Nationals Fazio course. It was Turners 10th PBCGA victory, his seventh since regaining his amateur status in 2016. He shot 67 on his own ball. Turner is the owner-operator of the Minor League Golf Tour. Second among 40 entries, Wight, an attorney, won the County Amateur in 2015. Society of Seniors: Michael Mercier, Juno Beach, was a member of the winning team in the 36th annual Ed Tutwiler Memorial Four-Ball at Kiva Dunes in Gulf Shores, Ala. Mercier and John Kircher, Pittsford, N.Y., won the senior division, ages 55-64, on the second playoff hole after they tied at 210 with Steve Hudson, Birmingham, Ala., and Lawrence Field, Palm Desert, Calif. Other age group toppers: super seniors, 65-74, Texans Jerry Hudgins, Tyler, and Mike Rice, Houston, 211; grand masters, 75-up, Claud Johnston, Canton, Mich., and Dick Clemens, Tampa, 222. It was Johnstons 13th SOS title. South Florida PGA: Brian Peaper and Biff OReilly, Lost Tree Club, North Palm Beach, won low gross for the second year in a row at the 39th annual Club Car/Pro-Official. They shot 65 at Frenchmans Creek-South compared to 66 last year at Fiddlesticks CC in Fort Myers. Peaper was also low pro with 69. Low net at 62 were Richard Terga and Patrick Pettit of Jupiter CC. Three teams from Palm Beach County tied for second in the Foundation Pro-Amateur on the South course at Fort Lauderdale CC. Matching 63s were Colin Amaral-Mike Connors, CC at Mirasol; Kenny Leach-Kevin Smith, Don Law GA; and Mark Beaulieu-Bryce Buesin, Atlantic National GC. Winning with 62 were Jan Urso and Darryl Whitford of Inverrary CC in Lauderhill. larryBUSHlbush@floridaweekly.com

Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band is universally revered as one of the best albums ever made. Although nothing will ever be able to match the experience of hearing those songs through young, virgin ears, The Black Jacket Symphony would like to embellish that memory with one of its own. On April 29, The Black Jacket Symphony will celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Beatles Sgt. Peppers with a full live recreation of the musical masterpiece. The Black Jacket Symphonys signature is its pardon the British term spot-on reproduction of the Beatles work. Its a disgrace to call BJS a cover band, but in a way, they are. Theyre just the best cover band ever. The BJS recreates the music with such attention to detail that Sgt. Peppers is especially challenging because of all the experimenting the Beatles were doing with sound and recording. Since its first gig in late 2009, the BJS has played concerts featuring Pink Floyds Dark Side of the Moon and the Eagles Hotel California. Its musicians are handpicked for each album recreation so there really isnt a single cover band. As many as 100 different musicians are in the BJS database waiting for a turn to perform one of these iconic albums. The Black Jacket Symphony presents the Beatles Sgt. Peppers takes the stage at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, April 29, at the Kravis Center, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach. Tickets: $15 and up at www. kravis.org or 561-832-7469.

Appropriate for families with children ages 3 10. s ribl e s pun ky d oesn t si ts to t h e in Americas a ired carrot g ates an ep i c e nture you ll A ppropriate w ith c hil d r e n presents COLLECTORS CORNER When it comes to Fenton glass, this stand takes the cake scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org Miss Beula loved her Fenton Silver Crest glassware. The milk glass had a clear, ruffled border that always brought a smile from me just how did the West Virginia glass company do that? It was simple, it was pretty and it probably was the nicest thing Beula, my dads stepmother, owned. She had a few pieces of the glass in her tiny house in Belle Glade, but it was after she bought a larger house in Riviera Beach that she began to accumulate and display the pieces. First, it was a pair of candlesticks. Then my mother bought her a basket. By the time she moved to her home in Jupiter, a large epergne held the place of honor on her dining table, its tall horns filled with plastic flowers at times. Alas, decorating may not have been Beulas strong suit, but she picked a classic to collect. When Fenton first began to produce the glass around 1940, it was drawing inspiration from Victorian ribbon glass made by the English firm Stevens & Williams. The company turned out pieces with the clear ribbon of glass around the border, and branched out to blue (called Aqua Crest), green (Emerald Crest) and amber (Gold Crest). I have lamps and dinner plates in Aqua, serving pieces in Emerald, as well as rarely seen pieces of pinkand turquoise-colored milk glass with the clear edge (called Silver Rose and Silver Turquoise). Rarer are the red (Flame) and black (Ebony) crests. It amazes me to see the array of colors in which Fenton created its Crests, and I now have a collection of more than 100 pieces. With Fenton glass, the quality is consistently nice, especially with older pieces. But the company continued reintroducing and reinventing color combinations up until it quit producing glass in 2011. As for Beula, she could be prickly at times, but she always did the right thing, caring for my grandfather for the two long years of his decline. She died in 1999, too young, and too soon after my grandfather. But I smile to remember her each time I see a piece of the Fenton Crests. Dont miss:Historic Downtown Arcadia Antique Fair Fourth Saturday of the month along Oak Street, 863-993-5105 or www.arcadiaflantiques.com. Bought: T he Lor ds Place Joshua Thrift Store, 7600 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach; 561-537-4666 or www. thelordsplace.org. Paid: $25 The Skinny: I always have my eyes skinned for pieces of the Fenton Crests. Some, like the companys crystalrimmed Silver Crest, are ubiquitous, popping up in antiques shops and thrift stores everywhere. Others, like the black-rimmed Ebony Crest, are harder to find. Fenton first made its Ebony Crest in the 1950s. Its original formula for milk glass had an opalescent quality. The company changed its formula in the mid-1950s to the flat-white milk glass from which this cake stand was made. Its unmarked, as are most Fenton pieces made before the 1970s, and its a piece for which I will make room. THE FIND:Fenton Ebony Crest cake standSCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis Fenton Ebony Crest cake stand dates from the 1950s or s. The company made the glass in an array of colors.

FLORIDA WRITERSJeff Klinkenbergs fourth collection is another Florida treasure Son of Real Florida: Stories from My Life by Jeff Klinkenberg. University Press of Florida. 248 pages. Hardcover, $24.95. Youre not likely to find a book that can top this one for love of its topic, wisdom, curious information and a quiet, selfdeprecating humor. If Florida has a soul, then Jeff Klinkenberg is its singer. If you enjoy unforgettable characters, nature, history or intriguing places, he offers plenty of well-turned vignettes to hold your attention and bring a smile to your face. However, its not all smiles. Theres a sadness here too: Much of what he calls real Florida is gone, and much more is fading. Mr. Klinkenberg respectfully memorializes whats gone. He makes his peace with what has replaced it. He is somewhat comforted by whats left. He divides Son of Real Florida into 10 chapters, each of which has several smaller sections. This design makes for easy reading. While the book has various kinds of flow and continuity, there are plenty of resting places to enjoy before moving on. After looking back to his relationship with his father, Mr. Klinkenberg (hereafter Klink) ruminates on what kind of lifestyles define Florida: beach bums, a taxi-driving woman from a small town to its tiny airport, a swampland wedding and living among rattlesnakes. Representative special Florida people include Miss Martha the oyster shucker, Sheepshead George the fisherman and that rare phenomenon: an African-American Florida cowboy. The profiles are vivid, affecting and likely to stay with you. They deserve rereading. What is real Key lime pie? This author has the answer. What happened to the citrus shops that used to dot the highways? Klink knows what and why. Then theres the problem of designing and growing the perfect, yet affordable and transportable, tomato. Florida has distinctive culture-defining places. The Coral Castle and its devoted creator both belong to the vanished past but did limp into the 21st century. Luther Cooks garden was a millionaires delightful hobby that kept him in touch with his boyhood. Then theres the real place named Rattlesnake and the place that lives only in collective Florida hopes and dreams: the fountain of youth. This fine author is eager to share his respect for other significant Florida authors and artists. Klink waxes nostalgic about the power of Robb Whites The Lions Paw, for him a classic of Florida literature. He profiles Patrick Smith; legendary photographer Clyde Butcher; Harriet Beecher Stowe; Michael Gannon; mermaid photographer Bruce Mozert, who eternalized Silver Springs; and numerous lesser-known exemplary figures exemplary, that is, of being one of a kind, including reformed criminal Billy the Kid Emerson. To this chapter Klink adds his personal list of books every Floridian should have on the shelf. They range from Marjory Stoneman Douglass River of Grass to John D. MacDonalds Condominium and Randy Wayne Whites The Man Who Invented Florida. A section titled Seasons of Real Florida offers beautifully written, imageladen descriptions of the four seasons in Klinks beloved state. One might call them prose poems. A section about the southernmost reaches of the Sunshine State offers enchanting portraits of the tiny Ochopee Post Office, Coral Reef State Park, the Seven Mile Bridge, the Hemingway House (on Key West) and Dry Tortugas National Park. Others have written about these places, but Klinks descriptions are the most fun. After sketches of another handful unforgettable characters, true Florida originals, this exceptional Florida original says so long with a reprise of his career as a Florida newspaperman. He has been one of the best, and this book makes it very clear just why this is so.About the authorJeff Klinkenberg wrote for the Tampa Bay Times (formerly the St. Petersburg Times) from 1977-2014.

ESTEBAN PARCHUC / COURTESY PHOTOMaestro Ramn Tebar conducts the Palm Beach Symphony. CHRIS HARTLOVE / COURTEYS PHOTOLeon Fleisher Despite the fact that she was a brand-new mother, Ms. Hurlbert was determined to get an audition for the national tour and approached her agents about it. They looked at each other, shrugged and said, OK, whatever floats your boat, she laughed. And I booked it! Then my husband, Tim, and I looked at each other and said, How are we going to do this? But this company is so generous. Ive been able to bring my little boy and my husband along with me on tour. Hailed by the critics and nominated in 2015 for 10 Tony Awards, Something Rotten! arrives in West Palm Beach with three original Broadway cast members to complement Ms. Hurlbert Rob McClure as Nick Bottom, Adam Pascal as Shakespeare and Josh Grisetti as Nigel Bottom. The musical tells the story of two playwrights in the 1590s stuck in the shadow of Elizabethan rock star Will Shakespeare. When a soothsayer foretells the next big thing in theater involves singing, dancing and acting at the same time, the Bottom brothers set out to write the worlds very first musical. Something Rotten! is laced with inside jokes for Shakespeare aficionados and musical theater enthusiasts alike. But Ms. Hurlbert, whose Portia is Nigel Bottoms love interest in the show, was quick to point out you dont need to be either a Shakespearean scholar or a musical theater devotee to appreciate it. If you love Shakespeare, youll obviously get a lot of the references, she said. But if you know nothing about Shakespeare or even hate Shakespeare youll see we make fun of him, too. And if youve never seen a musical this is the perfect one to see, because we literally explain how one is made. There is an 8-minute production number that explains the complete history of musical theater. Ms. Hurlbert said the biggest reward she has gotten in playing the funny and kooky Portia has been in bringing laughter to the shows audiences all across the country.Portia sees the world with purity and loving eyes, she said. Shes the eternal optimist. I think if you read the news or if youre simply a person on this planet right now, you know things can be a little stressful. And this show brings the happiest of happies. We always say if you dont leave the theater in a better mood than the one you came in with, you only have yourself to blame. Were all about giving you the laughter and the feel-goods.Ms. Hurlbert insisted she encountered no real challenges with her role, citing its fun to play, the music is so beautiful and its a sheer joy to go onstage every night, but she hinted it can be exhausting caring for a toddler between performances. And I havent been in my own bed or with my own things since Jan. 2, 2017, she laughed. That gets tiring and hard, especially touring with a toddler who doesnt care that you work at night and loves to get up early each morning. This tour wraps up on May 20, so it will be nice to get back in our New York City home with a full kitchen and surrounded by our friends. That said, weve seen some amazing cities that have really rolled out the red carpet for us fantastic aquariums, restaurants, zoos. Weve been afforded some wonderful adventures and Ill miss that. Ms. Hurlbert said she wants Kravis Center audiences to leave with their faces and bellies hurting from laughter. I think one of the integral messages of our show is a Shakespeare line: To thine own self be true, she said. Life gets confusing and sometimes were so attached to our phones and whats happening in the world that we can lose ourselves. Theres ample opportunity in todays world to become detached from yourself. But every character in this show flaws, quirks and all is undeniably true to his or her own self. If theres a message there, its stay true to yourself. Even if the audience gets a sliver of that, Ill be happy. Something Rotten! runs May 1-6 at the Kravis Center, 701 Okeechobee Blvd. in West Palm Beach. Cost: $28-$76. Info: 561-832-7469 or www.kravis.com.

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF APRIL 26-MAY 2, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINEThe millennials are driving food trends everywhere including at this years SunFest concessions. Sharon Shortt of San Francisco Puffs & Stuff, who has coordinated the food at the event since its inception in 1983, says the 18to 28-year-olds are bringing healthy, clean foods, plantbased foods and beef back. Its surprising, but beef is back with a vengeance, she said. Quality meat is key, so for those beef lovers, shes adding wagyu beef sliders to the concession menus. The small burgers made from top-rated lean meat are crowned with caramelized onions and a sirracha sauce. At another new booth, theres an Argentine skirt steak, marinated and grilled, then served with black beans and rice. For vegans, we can do black beans and rice with avocado on top there is no animal fat in the black beans. Asian foods also are trending, she said, and so are global street foods and hand-helds that can be eaten while standing. Kebabs are big, Ms. Shortt said. And I think poke bowls are huge right now. Thats led to the popularity of the booth called Smooth Move, serving plant-based bowls such as the acai (its pronounced ah-SAH-ee) berry bowl. Theyre somewhat problematic, because once all the greens are prepped for the weekend, they cant be saved for a future event, and tend to go bad quickly. People do want salads, she said, But these are not our mainstays. Burgers and chicken sandwiches are still popular. Along with the wagyu beef slider, there are Pan-Asian inspired Hawaiian chicken sliders with shredded chicken, barbecue sauce, soy sauce, minced garlic, a little pineapple and cheese, served on little Hawaiian rolls. Choices are available at the concessions for the restricted diet festgoer, too, she said. Almost all the booths can do a vegetarian dish, and some have vegan as well. We have a gluten-free pizza crust to make pizzas for those who are gluten-free. The top seller, though is still the Pineapple Chicken: a coconut-curry chicken salad served in a pineapple half. Hundreds are served every year at SunFest. Ms. Shortt said, People come back every year and tell us We come just for the Pineapple Chicken. Food booths at SunFest are at The Fueling Station at the North stage at Clematis, at The Eatery in the center section between Evernia and Fern streets and at The Diner at the South stage near Trinity Place. The floating bars on the barges serve drinks only. Foods and drinks are priced separately; cash works, and credit cards are now accepted. SunFest 2018 runs May 3-6 along Flagler Drive in downtown West Palm Beach. For more information, tickets and schedules, visit www.sunfest.com.Sweet corn rules at FiestaCorn on the cob fans shouldnt miss out on the big South Florida Sweet Corn Fiesta this Sunday, April 29, at Yesteryear Village at the South Florida Fairgrounds.

The county grows more sweet corn than any other county in the U.S., according to the states Agriculture Department. For more information about the event, including tickets, schedules, visit www. sweetcornfiesta.com.In briefSorry to hear that Costa, a Palm Beach Mediterranean restaurant, has closed after only a year. Chef David Valencia was critically acclaimed, known for grilled octopus, crispy duck and pastas made in-house. No word on what will take on the tucked away space on the second floor of the Esplanade on Worth Avenue. Wheres the beef? Youll find a variety of options at SunFest janNORRISjan@jannorris.com VINOA tale of two sistersSometimes, a story just falls into a writers lap, and it has to be told. This one is a classic. Its about two sisters who grew up on opposite sides of the world, neither one knowing of the others existence. Its about a dying mans wish, a tearful reunion and a remarkable coincidence. Well start with Robin McBride. She was born in Los Angeles, and when her parents divorced, her mother took her to live in picturesque Monterey County. She grew up with the sight of abundant grapevines stretching in every direction, and, not surprisingly, decided to make the wine business her career. Nine years later, her father, who still lived in Los Angeles, met a woman from New Zealand. They married and had a daughter, Andra. When the new Mrs. McBride was diagnosed with cancer, they decided to move to New Zealand to be closer to family. Andra grew up in Marlborough, on the north end of the South Island, which is basically the Napa Valley of New Zealand. Guess what she decided she wanted to be when she grew up? And so it went. Robin, the older sister, pursued her career in California having no contact at all with her estranged father. Andra did the same in New Zealand, never knowing she had a sister half a world away. Years later, Mr. McBride was suffering from a terminal illness, and he called upon his extensive family (he was the youngest of 12 siblings) to find his daughters and get them together. Literally, a deathbed wish, and a monumental task, since back in 1995 internet tools like searching for someone on Facebook or Googling a person were still far in the future. This is where the hand of fate taps us gently on the shoulder and quietly points the way. One of the McBride brothers, returning home from work around that time, turned on his television and happened to watch Oprah Winfrey interview whom? As destiny would have it, she had on her sofa two detectives who youd hire to track someone down if they owed you money. They were generous with information about the tools, books and other resources they used to find people who didnt necessarily want to be found. The brother got the idea, and got busy. It took a while, but he finally managed to find both sisters and put them in touch. In 1999, Robin flew from California to New York and met her longlost sister Andra at LaGuardia airport. Andra was 16, and Robin was 25. Robin remembers, I knew who she was as soon as she walked off the plane. We look so much alike, and we were even dressed the same almost. From there, nature took its inevitable course. The sisters love for wine enabled them to build whats basically a global business, sourcing wines from both California and the finest winegrowing regions of New Zealand. The McBride Sisters collection is their third venture, and it furthers their mutual goals. As Andra puts it, We want to create and distribute wines that speak to female and multicultural wine lovers. Seems like its working. I reviewed one of their ros wines in a previous column. Here are two others, along with another new favorite.McBride Sisters Collection Chardonnay Central Coast 2016 ($17) Deep yellow in the glass, on the slightly sweet side. This nicely balanced wine was fermented 50 percent in stainless steel and 50 percent in barrel. Flavors of green apple and white pear, along with white flowers. Very pleasant, especially for the price. WW 89-90.McBride Sisters Collection Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2016 ($15) This is not your typical Marlborough example of the varietal. Green apple, lime and grassy aromas and flavors predominate with tart subtle acidity on the finish. WW 87-88. Tom Gore Cabernet Sauvignon California 2015 ($13) This valuepriced wine merits some consideration. Its an easy drinking example of the varietal, a little backward (decanting would help), containing a bold, extracted profile of mixed black fruit. WW 87.Ask the Wine WhispererQ. Recently, I heard about a process used in winemaking called reverse osmosis. What is it? What does it do? A. This process, which is also used for water purification and other purposes, is a kind of filtration. Its mostly used to reduce the amount of water in wine, and make it bigger and more concentrated. In short, its often used to modify the wines flavor profile. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer. He is wine director of the international Direct Cellars wine club.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF APRIL 26-MAY 2, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15The Dish: Italian omelet The Place: John Gs, Plaza del Mar, 264 S. Ocean Blvd., Manalapan; 561-5859860 or www.johngs.com. The Price: $10.25; cash only. The Details: Expect to wait in line if you dine at John Gs. But trust me: Its worth the wait if you do decide to visit the breakfast and lunch spot. I sat at the counter for breakfast on a Sunday, where we had omelets and other egg dishes. This fluffy Italian omelet was packed with sausage, pepperoni, green peppers, mozzarella, onion and mushrooms. It was topped with a tangy tomato sauce and served with a plate of decadent hash browns that are crisp, yet tender. If you go for lunch, order the gazpacho. Its the best anywhere. Sc ott SimmonsTHE DISH: Highlights from local menus SCOTT SIMMONS/FLORIDA WEEKLYPlaces for dessertA trio worth noting3JANSTHREE FOR2 CAF BOULUD301 Australian Ave., Palm Beach. 561-655-6060; www.cafeboulud.com/palmbeach/. If a French restaurateur cant elevate dessert to a transporting experience, the world truly has gone mad. Caf Boulud succeeds without misstep. A perfect foil for any of the delightful meals here is their Citrus baba: a tart citrus-syrup soaked cakelet napped by a Key lime Chantilly a flavored soft whipped cream. Its served with a ginger-ice cream quenelle. Tres incroyable! 1 BELLE & MAXWELLS3700 S. Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach. 561-832-4449; www.belleandmaxwells.com. Their ultra-rich chocolate bread pudding with warm caramel sauce and a scoop of cinnamon ice cream will leave you breathless. Good idea to have small plates here if youre going to attempt this alone, too. There are several other choices, but we cant attest to them as we cant get beyond this ultra decadence.3 CAF CHARDONNAY4533 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens. 561-627-2662; www.cafechardonnay.com. Years ago, chef/owner Frank Eucalitto introduced his housemade tiramisu to the area at a time when the Italian version of a trifle was new to most Americans. It remains singularly the best weve had. With a cup of espresso or a glass of moscato, the mousselike layers of amaretto-soaked ladyfingers, whipped mascarpone cheese, and espresso are heaven on a plate. Jan Norris, firstname.lastname@example.org FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE When it comes to having passion for baking, Becca Traverse takes the cake. And she makes them, too, as one might expect of the pastry chef at the Coolinary Caf in Palm Beach Gardens. Her love of kitchen creations is almost as old as she is. I grew up in a family that loves food and cooking Chef Traverse, 28, said. My great-grandmother was an amazing baker and my grandfather was a chef. My mom loves cooking, and as a child, she taught me the fundamentals of baking. Ive been hooked ever since. From those days as a child, when Chef Traverse made the most of her EasyBake Oven, to her mastery of desserts at the Coolinary Caf, the Jupiter resident absolutely loves what she does. To hone her skills, Chef Traverse, a New Hampshire native, studied at the Culinary Institute of America in New York, specializing in baking and pastry. From there, she moved to Boston, where she worked under Joanne Chang at Flour Bakery. Later, she became sous chef at Brasserie JO, a French restaurant at the Colonnade Hotel in Boston. But two years ago, when her boyfriend, Andrew Rocklage, a trampoline park owner, wanted to move to Florida to be closer to his family, Chef Traverse decided to make a move, her self. I wanted to be someplace warmer, she said. She made a list of 20 restaurants in Palm Beach County that sparked her interest and took her rsum to each. The Coolinary was one of my last stops, and I immediately was just amazed by it, Chef Traverse remembered. Its just such a cute restaurant and I was impressed with the food and style. One of the managers told me that they werent hiring at the time, but he would talk to the owner (Chef Tim Lipman). I got a call from the manager to meet with Tim the next day. We ended up chatting for about an hour and we really hit it off. He told me he would try to figure out a way to get me on the team, but there was really no guarantee. After returning to Boston with her fingers crossed, Chef Traverse heard from Chef Lipman a couple months later. He had a spot for her at his restaurant. One of my favorite parts of working for Tim and Coolinary is that we have a good dessert menu that I can change if I want, but its mostly customer favorites, she said. There are about five dessert items on the set menu and then I put a new dessert on the specials menu almost every day to keep it interesting. She said she doesnt have a favorite dessert, but especially loves making cakes. I really like playing around with the flavors of a cake, she said. What I like to do for friends, customers, too, is find out what their favorite flavors are caramel, chocolate Butte rfinger, etc. and Ill try to make a cake with those flavors. One of her favorite things to order on the dinner menu is crispy pork shoulder ramen with bacon, mushrooms, bell peppers and a fried egg. Its just so good, I would definitely recommend ordering that, she said. In her spare time, she takes her Rottweiler to the beach. Im very devoted to him. And baking, of course. Its her passion and her profession, after all. Becca Traverse Age: 28 Original hometown: Exeter, N.H. Restaurant: Coolinary Caf, 4650 Donald Ross Road #110, Palm Beach Gardens, 561-249-6760, www.coolinarycafe. com Mission: To put a twist on comfort foods and have fun with food. Cuisine: Desserts cakes, pies, tarts, artfully plating desserts Training: Attended the Culinary Institute of America in New York Footwear: Vans Chef shoes (unfortunately, they are discontinued, but I found a Sketchers brand that looks just like them). Chef shoes arent exactly the most stylish of footwear, but the ones that I found look like leather slip-on skater shoes and are much more fashionable than the orthopedic look! Advice for aspiring pastry chefs: Always follow your passion and never question your personal creativity. Its better to experiment and see what happens than to wonder what could have been. Also, work REALLY hard!
