A2 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARY You wont catch us saying CLIMATE CHANGE You can say it a lot of different ways. Changement climatique (French). Cambio Climatito (Spanish). Il cambiamento climatico (Italian). Qhu binhu (Chinese). But how do you say it in English as spoken by the official representatives of the nations third largest state, with 20 million residents and more than 6 percent of the United States population? Like this (repeat after me): CLIMATE CHANGE! As everybody now knows, back in 2013 or so, Gov. Rick Scott forbade his minions in state government, especially in the Department of Environmental Protection, to use the term climate change (and he threw in the term global warming for good measure). Then he denied that he had suggested any such thing when his reality check was discovered a couple of weeks ago. I think its important to pause here and note that the governor did not ask state officials to quit using the word round when describing the planet Earth. Let me point out one other fact in his favor, as well: Gov. Scott did not tell his people they couldnt use klimawandel (German) or mudana climtica (Portuguese) or a handful of other exoticinvasive terms, which is why Im expecting them to turn up in a host of email exchanges between the governor and his staff someday soon unless hes figured out how to hide those emails, like he did others in the past. And I would hope in a less clumsy fashion than Hillary hid hers. One wonders what this means for Floridians, and I cant tell you. But I can tell you that I find the governors vocabulary restrictions sort of cute. The man is trying to help us, after all trying to make us feel better about the world and God knows somebody needs to. Besides, Im fairly fed up with the term, just like the governor. Climate change, climate change, climate change, bleh! Who really cares, anyway? Look at it through the governors eyes: Worrying about climate change is like worrying about night, or mortality, or ice cream melting in the sun. Sure, itll happen, so why talk about it? You gotta lick that cone while the lickins good and worry about the melt later. Thats been the governors attitude, an ice cream attitude, about nearly everything. Even the word climate itself bothers me, just as it probably bothers him. Its a heavily overused word that should be dropped from contemporary English like a dead rat. The thing dates back to the Middle Ages, if not further back than that, for Gods sake. So its just too old. Climate (n.) Late 14c., horizontal zone of the earth, Scottish, from Old French, climat, region, zone of the earth, from Latin clima (genitive climatis), region, slope of the earth, from Greek klima, region, zone, literally an inclination, slope, thus, slope of the earth from equator to pole, from root of klinein, to slope, to lean.You see? The word climate didnt even start to mean weather until about 1600, according to etymologists that was back when Willy-boy Shakespeare was commenting on the weather, too, and Elizabeth I was queen of England, where they spoke plain English, Im told, just like they still do in Florida. Unless theyre told not to speak plain English in Florida by the governor. For never-resting time leads summer on/ to hideous winter and confounds him there, the bard wrote in Sonnet 5. I assume Willy-boy wasnt referring to his queen, because she wasnt confounded by anything, including time or hideous winter. Though the sex to which I belong is considered weak, she said, you will nevertheless find me a rock that bends to no wind. Floridians can understand Shakespeare, all right: hideous winter. Some of them are here where the ice cream is melting because of hideous winter. And they can understand a rock like Gov. Scott, too, a leader who bends to no wind, especially the wind of science, knowledge and demonstrative reality. Science, knowledge and reality are not going to change our governor, or any of his fellow Republicans who insist they will not bend to the now compelling evidence at hand: that CLIMATE CHANGE! is real and the ice cream is melting. Frankly, I think the governor understands the majority of the citizens he represents in Florida better than any politician in recent years. We actually like CLIMATE CHANGE! down here. We want CLIMATE CHANGE! In a lot of cases, thats why we showed up in the first place: for a change of climate. Cant these liberals and whiners who are always complaining about CLIMATE CHANGE! get that? Thats why we bought waterfront houses and built golf courses and fought our way past county plans that restrict development to create more gated communities and more shopping malls and more growth we like CLIMATE CHANGE! We like it when the weather gets hotter and sunnier and brighter. And if I may speak frankly on our behalf, we dont really care if South Beach disappears under the waves, or if most of the coastal regions of Pinellas County vanish into Tampa Bay, or if we lose North Captiva or southern Marco by the middle or second half of the century. Most of us dont live in those fancy coastal communities, anyway, and most of us wont be around when it happens. So who cares? CLIMATE CHANGE!, Jack. If you dont say it, you cant see it. And if you cant see it, you wont face it. Thats how we do things in the Sunshine State. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com This column first appeared in March 2015.

OPINIONBuying democracyLets face it, the United States of Americas government is not a democracy like the textbook propaganda claims. No matter the intent of the founders, we have evolved into a pay-to-play oligarchy, where money rules. I have to say, I appreciate it when someone is so honest about his or her own dishonesty. Rarely, however, is someone so candid as Mick Mulvaney. He now heads the Trump administrations Office of Management and Budget, and even more damagingly, has been appointed by the president, on an interim basis, to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The CFPB was formed out of the rubble of the economic debacle in 2008 to, as the name suggests, protect the consumer, particularly against the excesses and outright thievery of the financial industry. Over consistent Republican objections, the agency issued regulations that would offer some federal protections against these behemoths whose executives ran the monetary system into the ground with their greed. Until Trump. Donald Trump came into office demonizing regulation, and he certainly has lived up to his campaign rhetoric by gutting the rules that were set out to create a greed shield. Mulvaney is a willing executioner. He had already established a harsh record as a South Carolina GOP congressman, a tea party favorite for his limited-government extremism except when it came to protecting the rich, particularly those who threw crumbs of their illgotten gains at politicians like him. Now in his new role, there he was, speaking to a group of bankers (what else?) when he took his amazing detour into remarkable candor: Speaking of his days as a congressman, he said that, when it came to scheduling meetings: If youre a lobbyist who never gave us money, I didnt talk to you. If youre a lobbyist who gave us money, I might talk to you. Theres no might about it, actually. Like just about every American politician who wishes to get elected and re-elected, a huge amount of time is spent fundraising which is to say groveling for campaign contributions, which is another way to describe legalized bribes. This corruption saturates our political system. It is bipartisan; Democrats are as guilty of selling their souls as Republicans. Its just that the Trumpsters are more blatant about it. Scott Pruitt is the latest one to wallow in the self-created muck. His public life has been lavishly subsidized by energy companies that dont want to be bothered by government limitations. In Pruitts native Oklahoma, where he was a state senator and later attorney general, he had a reputation of opposition to anything his private-industry benefactors disliked. Naturally Donald Trump picked him to head the Environmental Protection Agency, where after being barely confirmed by the U.S. Senate, he has been hellbent on gutting rules long established to protect the planet from corporate profiteering. He also has been hellbent on living a cushy life in Washington, financed by these same fat cats (think of his lowcost condo accommodations) and more egregiously, the taxpayers (think of prohibited first-class airfare, etc.). Again, Pruitt and the other Trumpsters conduct is not unique and certainly not limited to Republicans. The Clintons have faced similar accusations. It was Will Rogers who described Congress as the best that money can buy. Regrettably, that stain covers our entire political system. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. Trumps Nobel can waitWho would have guessed that a Trump crowd 15 months into his presidency would be chanting, Nobel! Nobel! Nobel! As in Alfred Nobel, the Swedish inventor and philanthropist who created the prizes, including one for peace. The prize was on the minds of Trump fans thanks to developments on the Korean peninsula, where Kim Jong Un has stopped testing missiles and started love-bombing the South. Donald Trump has a typically modulated view of how much he had to do with this. Everything, he told his Michigan rally. If thats too boastful, the president deserves credit for breaking with Barack Obamas policy of strategic patience that effectively meant accepting North Koreas march toward a nuclear-tipped ICBM. Trump tightened up on a sanctions regime. And he undertook a Trumpian pressure campaign consisting of insults, fiery rhetoric, extreme ambiguity about his true intentions and braggadocio about the size of his nuclear button. If many in the United States were freaked out, it stands to reason that Kim took notice. This is all to the good, but nothing we have seen so far from Kim is inconsistent with the decades-long North Korean diplomatic pattern of selling us the same fake concessions in exchange for sanctions relief and economic benefits. Inspiring talk with the South Koreans about a breakthrough to a new era of peace? To paraphrase Barack Obamas famous put-down of Mitt Romney, 1992, 2000 and 2007 all want their foreign policies back. High-flying joint declarations in each of those years proved meaningless. Mothballing nuclear facilities as a sign of good faith? Kim is inviting the press to witness the sh uttering of a tunnel complex used to test nuclear weapons. His father destroyed a cooling tower in front of the international media in 2008. Promises to the U.S. to disarm? Pyongyang said it was ending its illicit plutonium program in the 1994 Agreed Framework. It said it was giving up all nuclear weapons and existing nuclear programs in 2005 as part of the so-called Six-Party Talks. It said in 2007 that it was agreeing to specific steps to follow through on its 2005 commitment. All came to naught. This is why the ultimate test of Trumps mettle isnt getting Kim to the negotiating table, but being willing to walk away from it. Hed do well to familiarize himself with Ronald Reagans high-wire summit with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev at Reykjavik in 1986. They audaciously discussed eliminating all nuclear weapons, before the Soviets demanded an end to the SDI missile-defense program. Reagan walked away. The summit was considered a failure, but Reagan had convinced the Soviets that we werent going to give up our technological advantage over them. Trump should conceive of his meeting with Kim as a continuation of his campaign of coercive diplomacy. Should it (in all likelihood) fail to elicit a credible decision by the North to give up its nukes, it should be the pivot toward an even harsher clampdown on the North. None of the great and good are going to shower Trump with accolades for being clear-eyed and tough-minded, but thats what his negotiations with Kim require. The Nobel can wait.

Residents on Avery Way are in a tizzy about the Thunderstorm Play Palace, a 7,500-square-foot home where, neighbors told KDVR-TV, the owner invites swinging couples and singles to gather for wild sex parties. Invitees must make a donation ($70 for couples and single men, $20 for single women), and the parties include drinks, snacks and potluck dishes. One had four crockpots, said a neighbor, showing up like theyre going to a Bunko party or something. On the invitation, guests were asked to bring their own condoms and show respect for the new furniture. The host is a married father of three who feels harassed by the neighborhood, but he counters that hes taken steps to be discreet, including installing soundproofing and making sure there are no open areas. But neighbors claim they hear disturbing sounds coming from the house. You can hear people doing what theyre doing, one resident told reporters. Castle Rock police say the man is not breaking the law because hes only taking donations, and the activities are contained to his home.Do not climbThe Black Panther isnt feeling the love in South Korea lately. The Walt Disney Co. sent two statues of the superhero to Busan to celebrate Marvel Studios filming along Koreas southern coast. But on March 17, according to The Korea Herald, a 32-yearold drunk man was arrested after he vandalized the statue in the Gwangbok-ro shopping district, and on April 21, the statue near Gwangalli Beach was toppled and part of its head broken off. An official from the Korea Film Council thought someone had probably tried to climb the statue, despite numerous off-limits signs.Look-alikesDolores Leis, 64, of Nanton in Galicia, Spain, is a modest wife and potato farmer. But thanks to the internet, she has found fame as Trumps Galician sister. The Associated Press reports that a journalist researching farming posted a photo of Leis at her farm on Instagram, and the striking resemblance between her and the U.S. president caught the attention of the web. I say that it must be because of the color of the hair, Leis told La Voz de Galicia on April 24. She added that shes not overwhelmed by the sudden attention because, unlike her doppelganger, she doesnt use a mobile phone and isnt much interested in online chatter. I look at everything that my daughters show me, but it never stung my curiosity to have (a phone), she said.MisguidedGreyhound Bus passengers were frustrated on April 19 after their trip to New York was delayed by mechanical trouble and navigational challenges. The ride started in Cleveland, where the scheduled departure time was 2:30 a.m., passengers told WEWS-TV, but the bus didnt leave until 6 a.m. After crossing into Pennsylv ania, the bus turned around, and the driver explained he was returning to Cleveland because of mechanical difficulties. However, the driver missed Cleveland and drove all the way to Toledo before realizing the mistake and heading back to Cleveland. We were on this bus for seven hours just going in a circle, said passenger Morgan Staley.Bathing news Evelyn Washington, 29, broke then crawled through a window in a Monroe, La., home on April 17, then settled into a warm bath with a bag of Cheetos and a large plate of food within reach on the toilet lid. The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported that when the homeowner returned from work around 5 p.m., she called police, who removed Washington to the Ouachita Correctional Center, where she told them an unknown male told her to break into the victims residence. On April 4, a homeowner in the Longton area of Stoke-on-Trent, England, returned home to discover a man bathing in his tub and enjoying a cup of Oxo (broth), according to the BBC. When police arrived, the 36-year-old naked man tried to flee but was caught and arrested. The homeowner complained: He ate me crisps, had five rounds of corned beef and sauce, ate a jar of pickles, had two ice creams and a can of Coke.Whats in a name?A Planet Fitness customer in Saginaw Township, Michigan, was alarmed April 15 to find a Wi-Fi network named remote detonator while searching for an available connection.

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationThese days, its not How much is that puppy in the window? but Where did that rescue dog come from? Last month, the Washington Post reported that some rescue groups pay large sums to purchase adult dogs and puppies from commercial breeders that auction them off. The rescue groups say they are saving the dogs from a life of misery, but opponents say they are simply putting dollars into the pockets of puppy mills, encouraging them to breed more dogs for the auction go-round. No matter which side youre on, transparency is the name of the game. Anyone choosing to adopt a pet from a breed-specific or general animal rescue group should ask questions about the organization first. Heres what to consider. What are the rescues bona fides? A rescue organization should be able to provide references from a veterinarian, past adopters or trainers with whom they have worked. People should be as wary about rescue groups as they are of breeders, and do due diligence in their search for a rescue dog, says Renee Bruns of Oklahoma City, national director of American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Rescue Trust. What is the animals age? Kittens are typically easy to come by, especially during kitten season in spring and summer, but puppies are less commonly available from shelters and rescue groups. A rescue organization that regularly has puppies available may be purchasing oops litters or puppies from commercial breeders. Theres nothing wrong with wanting a puppy, but acquiring one this way is not necessarily a rescue; its a purchase. Where does the animal come from? Many shelters and rescue groups, when short on animals in their own areas dogs, in particular import animals from shelters in other states or even from out of the country. That eases pressure on shelters and rescue groups with too many animals, but it can also spread disease and parasites to parts of the country where they arent typically found. Cornell University virologist Ed Dubovi, Ph.D., says two recent canine influenza outbreaks in the United States are linked to viral sequences of influenza viruses that exist in Korea. Several rescue organizations bring dogs in from Korea and other Asian countries. Reputable rescue groups have stringent health and safety protocols to prevent disease and parasite transmission. Ask if dogs six months or older were tested and treated, if necessary, for heartworm disease and other conditions before relocation. How much is the adoption fee? Some rescue organizations charge hundreds of dollars, especially for purebred dogs. For a purebred dog in good health, $400 isnt unreasonable, says Maryanne Dell, founder of Shamrock Rescue Foundation in Orange County, California. For that fee, though, she would expect a rescue organization, at a minimum, to have had the dog temperament-tested, checked by a veterinarian, spayed or neutered, and microchipped. If we get into much over $300 or $400 for a dog, Im going to ask if the rescue is going to auctions and buying purebreds, and why, she says. I would want to have that high adoption fee itemized. If this is a dog who was hit by a car and the rescue paid $4,000 to fix it, and the dog is awesome and they showed me the bills, I might not balk at a $500 adoption fee.Her own organization charges a $200 adoption fee. It doesnt recoup her costs, but it assures her that adopters value the animal. Any red flags? Instant gratification isnt necessarily a good thing. Be concerned if a rescue group tries to push an animal on you or doesnt make any effort to check out what kind of home you would provide. Easy access to a dog, no in-home interview, willingness to ship dogs, and frequent availability of puppies are all signs that you may be dealing with a dog flipper who is selling animals for profit instead of an actual rescue group. Next week: What to ask about an animal youre considering adopting.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY HEALTHY LIVINGPreparing for surgery in our new ORIf youre scheduled for surgery, youre not alone. According to a 2013 research report, 232 million surgeries are performed annually worldwide. Regardless of the kind of procedure you are going to have, knowing some basic facts may help ensure a successful operation and rapid recovery. You will meet with your doctor two weeks before surgery to discuss what will happen during the operation, why the procedure is necessary as well as the risks and benefits of surgery. You will be asked questions related to your health history, including allergies to drugs or foods, previous blood transfusions, or prior problems with anesthesia. Be sure to tell your doctor about any prescription or over-the-counter medications you are taking currently because some can interact with anesthesia or cause excessive bleeding during surgery. Some routine tests may be performed before your procedure, including: Blood Work: You may need to have blood drawn on more than one occasion before the surgery. A complete blood count (CBC) looks at white cells (infection fighters) and red blood cells that carry oxygen to cells. Other blood tests may look at renal (kidney) function, test for diabetes or measure electrolyte levels. Unusual numbers may mean your surgery has to be postponed. You may need to fast before blood work, so be sure and follow instructions about what and when you should eat before your appointment. Urine Test: Laboratory tests of urine may indicate problems with nutrition, dehydration, diabetes or infection. Chest X-ray: This test can detect infection in the lungs and lung disease. A chest X-ray also shows the size of your heart and whether fluid is collecting in the lungs. Electrocardiogram: An electrocardiogram or EKG looks at your hearts electrical activity. By examining the EKG strip, your doctor can tell if youve ever had a heart attack, how your heart is working and whether your heart is beating normally. If you are a smoker, stop smoking before your operation to help ensure a faster recovery. If there is a risk of blood loss during surgery and your operation is more than four weeks away, you may be able to store some of your own blood for transfusion. Talk to your doctor about anesthesia options, which will be determined by several factors including the type of operation, your medical history, current health and personal preferences. Remember to make transportation arrangements because you may feel groggy after surgery and cannot drive yourself. The night before your operation do not eat, drink, chew or suck on any food after midnight. Do not drink any alcoholic beverage within 24 hours of your procedure. You also may be asked to shower and scrub the designated incision area with a special disinfecting soap. On the day of your surgery, leave all jewelry and valuables at home. Wear loose, comfortable clothing that fits easily over a bandaged area. Remove all facial makeup and nail polish, as well as wigs, hairpins, barrettes or combs. Before surgery you will be asked to remove your glasses or contact lenses, hearing aids and any removable dental devices. If you have body piercings, you will need to remove those as well. You will need to undress and put on a hospital gown. An intravenous (IV) line may be placed in your arm or wrist to supply your body with medications and fluids during or after surgery. You may be taken to a pre-surgery holding area where one or two family members or friends can accompany you, depending on hospital policy. After being transported to the operating room on a gurney or in a wheelchair you will be moved to the operating table. Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center recently unveiled its new OR expansion project. Some of the new amenities include: Ability to accommodate higher acuity, more complex cases in Ortho, Spine, General, and Robotic Services.

HEALTHY LIVINGWhen to let adult kids fend for themselvesFran reached for the phone, then stopped herself. She was about to call her 30-year-old son, Ryan AGAIN but knew it was not the right thing to do. Fran had told Ryan TWICE to call Frans former college roommate, Nancy, about prospects for a job at Nancys investment firm. But, so far he hadnt done so. It bothered Fran that Ryan did not take the initiative to follow up on this promising lead. Ryan had been out of work for three months. Fran had been working tirelessly, reaching out to her extended network of friends and colleagues, for help in finding Ryan a new job. Fran also was obsessively scouring the internet job search sites to see if there were any prospects. Ryan, on the other hand, didnt seem to be putting in nearly the same effort as his mother in securing him a new job. Fran had been told by too many people that she had a tendency to rescue her son. And, if truth be told, Fran knew in her heart that these well-intended people were correct. On the other hand, they couldnt know the anguish Fran and her husband, Pete, had suffered over the years worrying about Ryan. Ryan had always struggled in school. Even though Ryan attended college in another state, he relied on his mother to remind him of academic deadlines and proofread (and often write) his essays. Fran sheepishly admitted she did too much, but on the other hand, she doubted that Ryan could have graduated without her intense supervision.Theres an expression we may sometimes hear: Little kids, little problems. Big kids, big problems. There may be several interpretations of this phrase, and we may certainly dispute the validity of the assertion. As parents, most of us will become concerned when we see our children young or grown in distress. Our visceral reactions might be to swoop in to console and reassure or even to take charge of fixing the problem ourselves. But whats not always clear will be determining the appropriate role we should assume on the occasions when our adult children face major challenges. Many of us may lack the self-awareness of recognizing that our well-intentioned efforts to help our children may in fact thwart the very growth we hope to promote. Oftentimes, in an attempt to contain our own anxieties and fears, we may overreact in ways that ultimately are not helpful, or may even make things worse. Its hard for many of us to accept that we cannot control anothers behavior, nor the outcome. Sometimes, we may compromise our better judgment because were worried we will alienate our children by saying no. Lets be clear: Most parents have every intention of raising their children to become happy, well-adjusted human beings. We dont have an instruction manual that gives us the exact answers about how to do so. So we do the best we know how. Our job, at each life stage, ideally, is to encourage our children to appropriately take charge of their emotions and to develop skills of self-awareness, maturity and resilience. Developmentally, our children fare best when we provide structure and external boundaries with clear expectations, so theyre best able to develop their internal resources. Its human nature for loving parents to empathize with a childs frailties. If we sense that one of our children is having an especially hard time finding his or her way (emotionally, academically or socially) we may be inclined to make certain allowances we might not have felt necessary for another child. What may have begun as a nurturing effort to compensate for a childs deficiencies, though, may morph into an entrenched pattern of parental over-involvement, with minimal expectations of the child. On the short run, we may be successful in wiping away the frustrated tears. But, in the long run, we may be sending a damaging message: that we dont have confidence that our child can take care of things without our help. Its clear in the fictionalized vignette above that Fran wants the best for her son. Sadly, though, many parents, like Fran, find themselves dancing a repetitive behavioral dance with their children, young or adult, with each family member acting and reacting to a familiar, often dysfunctional role. All parties may do so because the dance feels safe and familiar. Parents often view their childrens trajectory as a reflection of their own character and parenting values, so there may be a strong personal investment in the childs success. Sometimes, though, when we become too involved in our childrens performance, we may have unwittingly provided a convenient out. The young people may project too much of their responsibilities onto us, without experiencing consequences for their poor behavior. So, lets ask ourselves an important question: Are we caught up in a nonhelpful dance with important family members? Are there steps we can take that will make a difference? When it comes to guiding our children, it helps when we can identify what drives our own anxieties and worries about our childrens successes and failures. Next, we can take a deep breath and then step back to lower the intensity. It can be helpful if we repeat an important mantra: Its not often the actual event or situation that causes our stress. Rather, its how we understand what is happening and what we PERCEIVE it means to us, and our lives. When we intervene with heightened emotionality, we up the ante, and may preclude thoughtful problem-solving. Each time: Before we jump in, its important to ask ourselves: Is this a responsibility that is our childs to assume? Is there a benefit to holding back our offers of emotional and/or financial assistance? We can practice asking open-ended questions that encourage our children, not only to open up, but to come up with their own solutions. We might ask: Have you thought about what you might do now? rather than jumping in with advice. Throughout it all, we will ideally communicate our belief that theyre capable of coming up with their own answers.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY11 people a day died because of an opioid in the first six months of 2017, according to the latest interim report from the Florida Medical Examiners Commission. Thats a 27 percent increase from the year before. A snapshot of the epidemic shows: The rate of opioid-related overdose deaths in Florida since 2013 has more than doubled. Florida deaths caused by synthetic forms of fentanyl increased 479 percent in the first six months of 2017 compared to the same time in 2016, the medical examiners commission reported. Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, which provides EMS services to a population of more than 746,000 in a county recognized as an epicenter of the epidemic, reports that spending on Narcan increased from $17,341 in 2012 to $307,648 in 2017. On the Southwest coast at four Lee County hospitals operated by Lee Health, the number of opioid overdoses rose from 171 in 2013 to 955 in 2017, a 458 percent increase. The dramatic increase in Narcan spending reflects the rise in overdoses as well as the rising price of Narcan, said Richard Ellis, Palm Beach County Fire Rescues division chief of medical services. He recounted hearing of some situations where the same person overdosing called for help multiple times in one day. However, Fire Rescue also has seen a decrease in overdose calls over the last six months. That could be good news in many cases, that fewer people are using opioids, namely heroin and fentanyl. It also could indicate that individuals equipped with Narcan (which is now sold at CVS) are reversing overdoses, but not calling 911. Its good that the people are being reversed and that the Narcan is available but its bad that theyre not calling 911, so theyre never entering the system that may get them help, Mr. Ellis said. Palm Beach County Fire Rescue follows an addiction protocol when paramedics respond to a call for any type of addiction, in partnership with local agencies through Southeast Florida Behavioral Health Network. Staff will reach out to a patient a few days after a call to check in. We show our concern, empathy, and we offer them addiction services, Mr. Ellis said. And if the patient is willing and receptive we give them contact information. Fire Rescue also tracked patients to whom addiction services had been offered. They found that those patients called 911 48 percent less during the six months after being offered help compared to the six months before. A lack of follow-up care has also led to a revolving door at places like SalusCares detox facility in Lee County, with the same patients coming back again and again. There are so many people out there who want to be clean, but it has such a pull on them, such a strong hold on them that they cant. And they tell you until theyre blue in the face, said Eileen Kappenman, who is in recovery, now three years clean, and works at SalusCares detox. I can tell theyre telling the truth because Ive been there, but they just cannot get (clean). There are not enough resources for help. Specialists point to too little funding for medication-assisted treatment (MAT) defined as a combination of behavioral therapy and prescription medication and other resources, for many addicts who do want to get help, such as FARR-certified recovery residences. People also face the stigma of addiction, a chronic illness often seen as a moral failing when in fact as with heart disease or diabetes patients bear personal responsibility for managing it, but are also affected in ways beyond their control, experts say. And many people who suffer from addiction are not ready or willing to get help. The lack of follow up care is being addressed by Palm Beach County agencies that in February partnered to take on the opioid crisis through a Rapid Results Institute 00-Day Challenge. The goal during that time frame is to link 125 adults with Opioid Use Disorder to at least 15 treatment providers and access to at least 25 FARR-certified sober homes. In doing so that could create a potential model for how other communities form partnerships between sometimes fragmented agencies government, forprofit and nonprofit to get people the help they need, said Gena Gustin, director of business development and strategy with The Recovery Research Network, a participating agency. Palm Healthcare Foundation, Southeast Florida Behavioral Health Network, and the Town of Palm Beach United Way also are participating. By the end of April, 63 people had already been linked to care including FARR-certified recovery housing. In recent years, illegal or unscrupulous recovery residences made many people hesitant to get help but through community efforts that have sent many of those bad actors packing, thats changing, Ms. Gustin said. Palm Beach County once had a black eye regarding the treatment industry, she said, but we have come together as a community to say addiction treatment matters, these individuals matter and there is a way to assist them getting help if thats what they want. In Lee County, SalusCare recently applied for a federal grant to help with follow-up care that includes Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT), MAT and other services. It does use MAT for some patients, treating them with the drug naltrexone. The agency plans to expand in the coming months by using buprenorphine as well. And the 20 beds at SalusCares 28-day residential drug and alcohol rehab facility in Fort Myers are not meeting the demand for people who want to get help. We have people who are waiting to come in, just waiting for bed availability, said Steven Hill, director of residential programs. Across SalusCares recovery residences, which includes a facility for adolescents and an adult halfway house, an estimated 55 percent to 70 percent of the people there on any given day meet the criteria for severe Opioid Use Disorder, Mr. Hill said. Right now the community need is just kind of continually going up and were seeing more and more getting thrown at us with the types of addiction that are going around, the intensity of the overdoses. Its really a mess.OPIOIDSFrom page 1 VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYSleeping rooms at Saluscare in Fort Myers have up to four beds to a room.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 NEWS A11The current crisis was created as people who were once addicted to prescription opioids often turned to illicit drugs after efforts to stop the influx of pills. Opioids are a class of drugs that includes prescription medication such as oxycodone and illicit heroin and fentanyl. Although prescription drugs are still causing overdose deaths, the dramatic spike nationwide and in Florida since 2013 continues to be fueled by illicit, synthetic forms of the opioid fentanyl, law enforcement and addiction experts say. Relatively cheap to produce, it is often made in China before being shipped to the U.S., and can be 50 to 100 times as potent as morphine. Fentanyl has been used to cut a variety of street drugs such as heroin, cocaine, and counterfeit pills, making them exponentially more powerful and deadly. The revolving door at detox facilities is seen by others at the front lines of the opioid epidemic as well, including county Emergency Medical Services first responders and ER doctors. Only about 20 percent of patients treated for an overdose at Lee Health hospitals in Lee County request help with addiction, said Dr. Aaron Wohl, an emergency physician who has studied solutions to the crisis and been on its front lines for several years. Although the epidemic requires a host of solutions, he feels one of the most acute is a lack of access to MAT and the prescription medications that are used to help ween people off opioids: methadone, buprenorphine and naltrexone. Communities, statewide and federally, thats what we need, Dr. Wohl said. That is happening, its just very slow and the trend is going to continue to be very slow as the money sort of trickles down into the communities. Because right now our communitys access to (MAT), its just woefully inadequate. Many treatment centers have not adopted MAT or are limited by a lack of funding. A recent appropriation of $65 million in state money to address different aspects of the opioid epidemic, including emergency care, reducing the supply of prescription opioids, and MAT, is not enough, Dr. Wohl argues. Still, the model that has been the most popular has been detoxifying the patient and then abstinence, which is completely inadequate for Opioid Use Disorder. So the gold-standard among addiction specialists is undoubtedly access to MAT. At the federal level, $6 billion was appropriated in February to fight the opioid epidemic, a small amount compared to the more than $124.6 billion allocated to fight HIV/AIDS in the United States from 2013-2017. For fiscal year 2018, the federal government has requested another $26.6 billion to fight HIV/AIDS domestically. We need to throw so much money at this as a nation, Dr. Wohl said. We did it for HIV and we havent even gotten close to that kind of spending concerning the opioid epidemic and I believe thats because of the stigma that still surrounds addiction and mental health. Melissa McKinlay, the mayor of Palm Beach County, agreed that the current level of state and federal funding is absolutely not enough. Thats a nice start but no way will that eradicate the problem, she said. And the federal funding has restrictions on its uses, it cant be used for treatment bed expansion, which is one of our biggest problems. She added that access to MAT and other care for substance abuse is also hindered by lack of access to treatment for the indigent, including because Florida is a state that failed to expand Medicaid, which provides coverage to lowincome people. And there are a lack of doctors who are qualified to use MAT. Right now we have a shortage of doctors that are able to provide it, she said. In February, The New York Times asked 30 experts in the United States to imagine they had $100 billion to spend on the opioid crisis, less than domestic spending on HIV/AIDS over the last five years. Out of four main categories aimed at stopping the epidemic treatment, harm reduction, supply, and demand the panel allocated the most money for Medication-assisted treatment. They also allocated money for harm reduction strategies such as syringe exchange programs (only one is currently being used in Florida, in Miami) and the use of the opioid overdose reversal drug Narcan. Since July 2016, Narcan has been available to the public through CVS pharmacies. Narcan is the brand name of naloxone HCl nasal spray. Its the first and only FDA-approved nasal form of naloxone for the emergency treatment of a known or suspected opioid overdose, according to the maker. The spray counteracts the life-threatening effects of opioid overdose. The U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams issued a statement this year encouraging more Americans to carry naloxone: For patients currently taking high doses of opioids as prescribed for pain, individuals misusing prescription opioids, individuals using illicit opioids such as heroin or fentanyl, health care practitioners, family and friends of people who have an opioid use disorder, and community members who come into contact with people at risk for opioid overdose, knowing how to use naloxone and keeping it within reach can save a life. First responders armed with Narcan are saving lives but not preventing people from using. The emergency care is increasingly expensive as those who are getting a lack of follow-up care continue to overdose. Lee County Commissioner Cecil Pendergrass said, We need to provide more services afterwards, we need to provide rehabilitation and maybe even housing. A lot of these people get into a position in life where they dont have anywhere to go afterwards... Yes, if (Narcan) is saving a life its priceless, were going to continue doing it, its worth it. The problem is were having the same patients over and over again. More sheriffs offices in Florida are beginning to carry the life-saving drug. Charlotte County Sheriffs Office deputies in April started training to use Narcan. Following the Florida Sheriffs Association recommendation and what seems to be public need, drove us to make a decision to carry Narcan, wrote spokesperson Skip Conroy. Only Road Patrol Watch Commanders, supervisors and some specialty units such as STAR (Strategic Targeted Area Response) are currently issued Narcan. Collier County Sheriffs Office deputies in the Vice & Narcotics and Canine divisions carry Narcan. CCSO is still in the discussion and planning stages about possibly expanding the use of Narcan in the future, wrote spokesperson Kristi Lester. Palm Beach County Sheriffs deputies do not carry Narcan, a spokesperson said. PBCSO did not respond to an email asking why they dont carry it. After EMS technicians give a patient a dose or more of Narcan, they often receive more at a hospital emergency room because the increasing strength of various types of fentanyl which can be 100 times more potent than morphine is overriding the antidote. Like before we would give Narcan and somebody would come right out of the high and kind of come up fighting, said Tabatha Butcher, Collier County EMS chief. Now theyre not responsive at all or it takes another dose just to kind of barely arouse them. For patients, suddenly coming off their opioid high from naloxone can be an awful feeling that leads some to be aggressive or even violent. When the patient is revived, about 70 percent of them can become a little bit aggressive and frustrated and theyre profoundly embarrassed and a bit incredulous and they oftentimes want to leave immediately, Dr. Wohl said. Lee Health is beginning to look at trying to link patients identified in the ER with Opioid Use Disorder with recovery specialists and provide services such as a call back the day after to see if they made an appointment. The overdoses and deaths have far-reaching implications for mental health and substance abuse. Valeries House, a Southwest Florida nonprofit that helps grieving children and families work through the loss of a loved one, formed a new support group for those who have suffered a loss due to the opioid epidemic. Its open to anyone in the community who is raising a child after the loss of a loved one due to drug abuse. Last October, executive director Angela Melvin started to see a trend in one or two families each week coming to them because a loved one had died of an opioid overdose. The children, they are the silent victims, she said. They are the ones who are growing up without a parent or possibly a sibling and the impact that has on their life going forward is tremendous. Jeff Lampila, 33, attended the group with his 4-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son. They lost wife and mom Ansley, a Lee County elementary school teacher, to a drug overdose in 2015. She had struggled with an addiction to prescription pills for years. After surgery following a car accident she was prescribed opioids and other pain medication and later turned to illegal drugs. Mr. Lampila said after the group meeting to his son, Theyre all like me. And I said, Everyone there has lost someone to some kind of substance. So thats one of the things we talked about on the way home. VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYNarcan is the brand name of naloxone HCl nasal spray.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYBeach, suggested the Philanthropy Tank, a contest that borrowed its format from the popular TV show Shark Tank. Students would make presentations to a panel of investors who could bid for the opportunity to fund their ideas. But the kids get something else Mr. Meyer says is invaluable to them as they move forward in their careers: A years worth of mentoring. Sophia Zheng and Hayley Huber, both juniors at Dreyfoos School of the Arts, were awarded $14,000 by Jim Karp to support their organization, Find the Keys Music Program. Find the Keys gives musically ambitious kids access to music lessons and musical instruments, two very expensive reasons lots of kids dont get to play music. They hold free music camps, provide free lessons and even loan out instruments. This dynamic duo knows a thing or two about being musically ambitious: Sophia plays the violin and Hayley plays the cello at Dreyfoos, a school that strives for excellence in the arts. They both see music as a gift they want to share. Ten-year-old James Washington was one of the first kids to attend Find the Strings camp. He had never touched an instrument before he came to the camp, Sophia said, but he had more passion for his instrument than I did as a little kid. Which was a lot! James chose the cello, a very difficult instrument. The entire week he practiced, even during breaks, Sophia said. By the end of camp, James serenaded a stunned audience with two songs he learned. This was exactly the kind of kid the teens wanted to reach, and that only fueled their resolve. Their passion spoke to philanthropist Jim Karp. Mr. Karp says kids like Sophia and Hayley are the future. They give me hope. Theyve got their stuff together. Mr. Karp doesnt think of himself as artistic, but he loves the arts and hes done more than his share to support the arts in West Palm Beach. Bringing music to the underserved community resounded with his personal goals. Exposure to the arts really helped me, Mr. Karp said. One of six kids growing up in Kentucky, Mr. Karp spent more time around horses than people, but when he left home for Indiana University, It got me involved with other people and exposed me to things I never would have seen otherwise. The Vietnam vet majored in economics and has founded several successful companies RxCrossroads and PharmCord in the healthcare arena, and the Kaden Companies and America Place, real estate development and preservation businesses in Karps hometown of Louisville. Mr. Karp, 75, sees his mentorship as an opportunity to guide Hayley and Sophia in answering two big questions vital to a successful business: How are you going to leverage it? and How are you going to sustain it? But some of Mr. Karps advice is practical. The first time I met them, I said, Get organized. Im a believer in making checklists. And I told them, when you speak, dont say, um, or like, or uh. Think of what you want to say and say it. I really want them to be successful. Weve given these kids a venue to do something, but they have to do the work themselves. Or, in the case of Joseph Rubsamen, by himself. Joseph stood solo in front of the four judges to make his presentation, but he was not without support. The first time I presented in practice I was nervous, but by the time the presentation came, I was fine, Joseph said. Joseph, like Sophia and Hayley and the six other finalists chosen from more than 60 applicants, attended coaching sessions over two weekends, which gave them an opportunity to polish their pitches. That preparation paid off. Joseph was the first Philanthropy Tank pitchman to get more than what he asked for for his charity, Shoes2You. Mentor Rick Stone is a local attorney who has used his time, intelligence and money to help local kids. Hes taught economics at Palm Beach Lakes High School as a volunteer for 10 years, and he supports Junior Achievement and the Community Foundation of Palm Beach and Martin Counties. He is the president and co-founder of the Palm Beach Investment Research Group Inc., a membership-based not-for-profit corporation. I think working with kids is the most beneficial way to spend my time, Mr. Stone said. He loves mentoring and he was attracted to Joseph, in part, because of his shyness. Hes a one-man operation, Mr. Stone said, and I knew I could help him. Mr. Stone said he thought Josephs shyness made him ask for less money than the project deserved, so he raised his bid by $2,700 to $14,000. Unlike the groups whose ideas were startups, Josephs Shoes2You was founded in 2014. The Oxbridge Academy teen began collecting and distributing gently used shoes to adults and children worldwide after a trip to Nicaragua opened Josephs eyes to the way much of the world lives. When we came back, I kept talking about it, Joseph said. His parents, Patrick and Merilynn, said that if he felt that strongly about it he should do something about it. He put out his first collection boxes expecting to get a couple of dozen pairs of shoes. Instead he found five overflowing boxes. Joseph delivered the first shoes to Nicaragua soon after, fulfilling the promise he made to himself, but he didnt stop there. To date, Shoes2You has delivered 13,000 pairs of shoes to people who needed them. Through partnerships with the Palm Beach County Health Department, Shoes2You provided shoes to people who couldnt work because they lacked a pair of shoes. Through a partnership with Education Rocks, Shoes2You brought footwear to kids so they could go to school in Bali, Indonesia. He also supports Los Pipitos Clinic and the Womens Diabetic Center in Rivas, Nicaragua. Locally, he has worked with The Achievement Centers for Children and Families, an education center in Delray Beach, Pauls Place, a ministry of St. Pauls Episcopal Church in Delray Beach, the Delray Beach and Lantana/ Lake Worth Health Departments. Mr. Stones initial recommendation to Joseph is to focus more on local needs. Shipping overseas is too expensive for this venture, Mr. Stone said. He encouraged Joseph to continue with the overseas donations that were in place but to support the people in his own backyard more. One practical issue Joseph faces is finding places to put collection bins where donations are safe and protected from the elements. On the plus side, hes got plenty of muscle from his Oxbridge classmates who support Shoes2You, and a lot of enthusiasm and support from his fellow Key Club members. You cant do much as a high school student, Mr. Stone said. But these kids have found a way to have a true impact. For his part, Mr. Stone says, This is fun. Mr. Stone is also mentoring a trio of young ladies from Glades Central whose project Uniformity is providing school uniforms to kids in the western communities who cannot afford them. Many are the children of migrant workers. Theyre at a different level. They have so much to learn, Mr. Stone said. Theyre developing a plan to take their idea to fruition. Its exciting to see how hard they work. A great idea doesnt have to be a big idea, Mr. Stone said. He offered a core piece of his philosophy when he spoke at the Philanthropy Tank presentations: Never underestimate the power of a small act of kindness. Like a pair of shoes or music lessons.

BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY | A13WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM SEE BOLD, A14 IBY MYLES KORNBLATTFlorida Weekly Automotive Writer ts simple, Ford wants to be your car company. Bill Cosby utter ed those words in 1970s commercials, and it seems that slogan was fully retired last month and not just because of the person who said it. Ford announced on April 25 that it would be phasing out all car names in North America except the Mustang. New products will be trucks, SUVs and crossovers almost exclusively. It might seem like a drastic measure from the company famous for launching the mass-market car, but its also a bold business move. Were not buying sedans right now. Almost any domestic product with a trunk has seen Ford phasing out cars except Mustang, still wants to be your crossover companyBOLD MOVE COURTESY PHOTOSThe Mustang will be the only car Ford will salvage in a move to produce more crossover and SUV vehicles. MONEY & INVESTINGSpotify sputters in public opening; wait a bit before you buyIt is every investors dream to get in on the ground floor of the next huge company. That is why on almost every financial website you will see advertisements telling you that this stock is the next Amazon or this company will grow to be the next Apple. However, identifying these opportunities is seldom easy. Many analysts are comparing the streaming music company, Spotify, to Netflix in its infancy. Is Spotify the next Netflix and should investors jump into the stock today? Spotify was founded in Sweden and first launched in 2008 as a music streaming company. The company is based on the freemium pricing strategy where users can stream music for free or pay a monthly fee to get more advanced features. The company makes money even on free users by selling advertisements that are played while its customers listen to the music. The company then pays 70 percent of its revenue as royalties to the music writers and artists. Spotify went public about a month ago. So, it was with great anticipation that analysts and investors awaited the companys first earnings call as a public company last week. Unfortunately, the music streaming firm did not impress. Revenue was slightly below expectations, which is a critical miss given that the company is losing money and is basing its high valuation on rapid growth. In addition, the number of active paid subscribers during the quarter totaled 75 million, also slightly below expectations. This is significant because the vast majority of Spotifys revenue comes from subscription fees as compared to advertising revenue on free accounts.

A14 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYhuge percentage declines in the last few years. Conversely, crossovers based on these sedans have seen double-digit sales increases. Fords sedans have also been sidelined during this market shift. Of the four it sells today, the youngest is the Fusion with six years since its last full redesign. The Taurus is the oldest with nine years looking nearly the same. In this same period, Toyota has fought to keep the Camry relevant and successful by going through three generations. So, Ford is at a critical point where it needs to sink significant money into cars or hang up its four-door spurs. Its also a lot easier to abandon this market right now. A few weeks before Ford announced its product shift the EPA relaxed its fuel efficiency targets. Thus, all car companies can now ignore the lightest/smallest part of the market. For example, the Ford Focus sedan and Escape crossover share a platform and similar components. The most efficient gas-powered Focus is rated at 27/38 mpg city/highway. The most efficient Escape is currently a 23/30 mpg city/highway. Still, the current Escape is about 18 percent more efficient than what was available at the end of the last decade when American car companies saw gas prices climb and sales plummet. Its part of a lesson learned. For example, the 2008 Ford Expedition SUV had a combined rating of 16 mpg. If prices surge to $4 a gallon again (unlikely, but prices are climbing) the same dealership can now showcase a new Expedition that gets 20 mpg. And Ford will also invest in more electric and hybrid crossovers to offer vehicles that break 30 mpg. Basically, Ford wont be a fuel economy superstar, but it also wont breathlessly watch the gas pumps. Besides varying fuel prices, this decision to give up sedans does make Ford more vulnerable. If cars exited its lineup today, the lowest price vehicle would go from $15K to $21K. This alienates young people looking for starter cars a key factor in building brand loyalty. Also, every other car company out there sees that trucks, SUVs and crossovers are where the growth is. So, the market is steadily crowding with more competition. And with Ford fully involved, what happens if tastes change? Crossovers are basically cars with tall bodywork. If Americans start flocking to sedans again in droves, Ford will just need to re-skin its platforms. It will take a couple of years and have large costs, but its hardly the kind of time and money required if starting from scratch. This scenario would likely have Fords finances in the red for a few years, but the coffers could be filled with cash from suspending sedan production when theyre unpopular. Thus, its risky, but there is potential for an overall winning strategy. Business decisions dont often get so much attention, except this one is especially ne wsworthy bec ause theres an emotional element. Ford giving up cars in North America is a symbol that our country is no longer looking to be the mightiest manufacturer. Elsewhere in Detroit, General Motors gave up Opel/Vauxhall. This was essentially exiting mass-production in Europe, and its a larger signal that GM has no desire to regain its number one position globally. Where the companys pride was once firmly tied to its supreme manufacturing status, its now focusing on being a leaner operation that maximizes shareholder profits. Thats not necessary a bad thing. Producing a glut of cars is what helped send them into bankruptcy in 2009. In fact, GM will also be scaling back new sedan production, but not entirely. Chevrolet is giving the ax to the subcompact Sonic, and one or more of the Cruise, Malibu and Impala lines will likely also disappear. But the Buick Regal has been redesigned with an interesting sedan-like hatchback, and the LaCrosse was recently refreshed with a sporty new look. Plus, Cadillac is using its CT6 sedan as a flagship for new technology like the semi-autonomous Super Cruise. Premium brands like Cadillac also highlight a place where the sedans will likely continue to find a secure home. A lengthy leather-clad four-door has been a long-standing symbol of wealth. In England, the sedan (saloon) used to be seen as a show of frivolous design for those who could afford to waste space, because wagons (estates) offered more versatile packaging. Today, were just catching up to that standard with a preference for compact crossovers that are little more than tall wagons. Ford doesnt want to be your car company anymore, and you dont want its cars anymore. Its an aim small, miss small strategy for shareholders, and tugs the heart of the car communitys core. And if you dont like it, trade in your crossover for a sedan. BOLDFrom page 13 COURTESY PHOTOSFord Fusion assembly will cease at Ford moving forward. overly optimistic about next quarters numbers, either. Revenue and paid-subscriber growth are expected to be below analyst expectations for the upcoming quarter as well. This is a bad sign for a $30 billion market cap company that is able to achieve such a high valuation with the promise of being the dominant company in streaming music just as Netflix is the dominant company in video and TV streaming. The company is operating at a loss, losing 179 million Euros in this past quarter alone, in order to be the market leader. But a lack of significant growth will put this strategy into question. This is especially true as competition heats up in the streaming music space. Two much larger tech companies, Apple and Amazon, are ramping up their streaming music services. Unless Spotify can start to dominate the streaming market in the near future, it may be very vulnerable going forward. One way Spotify is attempting to distinguish itself from its peers is to follow the Netflix playbook and have exclusive content on its platform. Last year, Spotify announced that going forward certain artists or songs would be available only on its premium paid service. In addition, the company is expanding geographically, with new service in Asia and Africa in order to be the first mover in these countries. Despite its potential to be the dominant player in the streaming music industry, I would be cautious in investing in Spotify today. I think the company will experience growing pains in the next few quarters as it finds its footing while defending itself against its competitors. This may mean I dont buy the stock at rock bottom, but I would rather miss a few percentage points of gains than lose my investment if the company continues to stumble.

ON THE LINKSCohn takes lead in womens championshipSusan Cohn of Palm Beach Gardens says she always gets nervous during the Palm Beach County Womens Amateur Championship. Even this year, when she was the only one to break par with a one under 72 the first day on the Champion course at PGA National. Even though, two days later, she led by five shots heading into the final round. And even though shes won the championship the last 11 years in a row and 14 times in the past 18 years. Even with all this going for her, Ms. Cohn says she was nervous during the final round, especially with Marianne Springer, her cartmate, providing a serious threat. Marianne was amazingand you know anything can happen, especially on the Champion course, Ms. Cohn said. There are so many good players in the field. Ms. Cohn, shop manager at Frenchmans Reserve, upped her numbers to 12 straight titles and 15 of the last 19. She followed her opening round with 81-75 for 228. Ms. Springer, a perennial challenger but never a winner, had 78-80-76. Taffy Brower of Boynton Beach, a winner seven times between 1984 and 2006, was fifth at 248. In between, Stacy Politziner won a match of cards at 245 with Lina Hart to settle third and fourth places. Other flight winners a fortnight ago in the 40th annual Womens County Amateur: Champion course: Rebecca Potter, first, 251; Martha Greenhalgh, second, 259; Grace Rose, third, 268; and Karen Ireland, fourth, 276. Squire course: Toni Handegard, first, 273; Brenda Schneider, second, 288; Loraine Cates, third, 297; and Joyce Hart, fourth, 349.PBCGA: Bear Lakes CC No. 2 won the seventh annual Palm Beach County Club Team Championship at Wellington National, formerly known as Binks Forest. Leading the way was John Pickett, a member of Bear Lakes winning teams in 201415. Teammates this year were Mackenzie Nelson, Greg Etimos and Paul Park of Wayne, N.J., a regular on the Minor League Golf Tour. They shot 130, two best balls of the foursome, winning by three. CC at Mirasol was second among 13 teams at 133 with head professional Roger Kennedy Jr., former major league pitcher Jimmy Key, Reidar Brekke and Robert Biles. FWSGA: Ina Kim of Jupiter shot 78-7250 to finish second in the championship flight at the sixth annual Florida Womens State Mid-Amateur at Sugar Mill CC, New Smyrna Beach. That was seven shots behind the winner, Kim Keyer-Scott of Bonita Springs with 70-7343. Meghan Stasi of Oakland Park, winner in four of the first five womens 25-older events, was fourth on 153, one behind Mary Jane Hiestand of Naples at 152. Streit Four-Ball: Sherry Herman of West Palm Beach and Lisa Schlesinger of Fort Myers won the fourth annual Marlene Stewart Streit Invitational FourBall, beating the Naples team of Mary Jane Hiestand and Natalie McNicholas 3 and 2 in the finals on the Champion course at PGA National. It was the second year in a row that Hiestand and McNicholas lost in the championship flight finals. Leslie Henry, Serris, TX, and Corey Weworski, LaCosta, CA, won qualifying medalist honors on a match of cards at par-72. SFPGA: Southeast Chapter pros retained the Nelson Cup in the 24th annual competition among mainland chapters. Southeast and Southern earned 21 points apiece while the Southern scored 12 in an alternate shots event at Boca Grove Plantation that was curtailed by rain. Overall, Southwest has 11 wins, Southeast 10, including the last three years in a row, and Southern 3. The Island Chapter does not participate. Southeast squad members were Colin Amaral, Jimmy Buell, Rick Gomes, Jerry Impellittiere, Chris Kaufman, Roger Kennedy Jr., Mark Mielke, Alan Morin, Matt Newman, Pete Oakley, Chris Stanko and Jeff Waber.

Other win totals since : PGA Tournament Series, 16; South Florida PGA Section: 16; PGA Winter National Championships, 5; and the SFPGAs Southeast Chapter, 2. While still working in the New York area, San Filippo won the PGA Winter Stroke Play Championship in 1992 at PGA National. Steve Philbrook, 70, former head professional at the Mayacoo Lakes and Ibis country clubs in suburban West Palm Beach, has become an accomplished watercolor painter specializing in fish, birds and other wildlife. He still spends time in South Florida during the winters and keeps involved in golf by teaching at a boys camp in his native Maine each summer.Dave George concluded his 40 years at The Palm Beach Post, most of it as a columnist, by winding down at The Masters in April. Here is my favorite Dave George story: It was in the late-1970s, Dave was early in his tenure at The Post and I was with The Evening Times. On a Saturday afternoon at one of South Floridas thoroughbred race tracks, I mentioned to Dave that I had enjoyed something he had written on golf a few days earlier. I hope I didnt do too good, he replied. They will want me to write golf all the time.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 A17 A tale of three homes BY ANNE LOGIUDICESpecial to Florida WeeklyAs a full time Realtor, I look at a lot of property on average, about 200 homes a month. Not online. Actually walking into a home and taking it all in. If youre a creative type and occasionally binge watch HGTV, you may have gotten caught up in the possibilities. So, where and when does it make sense to renovate? Is it really necessary? Case study: Buyers are looking for a one-level home, three to four bedrooms, in northern Palm Beach County. They want to be close to the beach, close to shopping and dining, and not too far from Palm Beach International Airport. They like a gated community, but dont want to be in a mandatory country club setting. As I write this article, there are only 16 homes available in one local municipality that meet this criteria. Most of the homes that made the list are older homes (built pre-2006, usually in the 1980s), which means the homes roofs, A/Cs, windows, floors, kitchens, baths, pools and electrical systems are older. The ones on this list that are updated are selling for much, much more than the AOE (all original equipment) homes. And the amazing thing is. They are selling quickly! One home (our first home) recently sold in less than two days. Gorgeous updates, and the systems had all been updated as well. It was obvious the materials were top quality, style was current, and the floor plan really worked. Space for everyone, although the square footage was smaller. This home sold for over $340/SF. Another home just around the corner, in the same neighborhood, also updated (our second home) went under contract very quickly (five days). Updates were very nice, floor plan similar, but the home backs up to a busy road. This location cost the seller money, as they only got $291/SF for their home. But if you look at the neighborhood next door, a gem (our third house) exists! Larger than the other two, this one-level floor plan also has an additional bedroom and powder room. Most of the systems have been updated (roof, A/Cs, electrical, all hurricane impact windows, etc). The kitchens and baths are original. The house has great curb appeal, and is in a great location within the community on a large private lot. It has what we call great bones. This house is listed at $228/SF. With a $35,000 budget, this home can have an updated floor plan, new kitchen and baths, and some other cosmetic improvements to really make it shine. The instant equity increase in value of this third home, when compared to the other updated homes? If you factor the purchase price plus the cost of renovations, the new instant equity is over $70,000. Conclusion: Its true! Our homes are our castles. As such, the investment in a renovation or update is worth a lot not only to you, but to a buyer as well. Dont underestimate the importance of keeping your home well maintained, and investing in your homes systems and appearances. Anne LoGiudice is a local resident and licensed Realtor. She has been involved in over 75 custom home design/ builds since 2001, and provides design, selection and project management for her clients who choose to renovate.

Military Trail, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410 Just north of PGA Blvd. on Military Trail ANTIQUESWhats in a name when it comes to furniture? BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELThe major furniture styles used in the United States have names, some for royalty, others for talented designers and cabinetmakers. But by the 1900s, furniture was named for styles of art. Starting in the 1600s, there was Pilgrim, William and Mary (English King and Queen); Queen Anne (also English royalty); Chippendale (Thomas Chippendale, an English cabinetmaker); and American Federal, which included the American designs and pieces similar to Sheraton and Hepplewhite (Thomas Sheraton and George Hepplewhite, English cabinetmakers). By the 1800s, furniture was designed and named for political changes, including Empire, Victorian and many revival styles that copied earlier ones. The 1900s had Mission (also called Arts and Crafts), Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern, and Modern (also called Contemporary). The United States had many other less important design influences, and these were named for the countries that inspired them: Japan, Egypt, the Shakers and even what is called Moorish style, a mixture of Turkish, Spanish and Arabian designs. Decorators today like to have an "accent piece" in a plain contemporary room; something that is unique or at least very unfamiliar. Recently, a pair of Moorish chairs were in an auction in New Orleans. They were made in the unfamiliar style and were carved, ebonized and had mother-of-pearl inlay. The backs were pierced with scrolled crests, and seat fronts that looked like small picket fences. The pair of unusual chairs were estimated at $1,200 to $1,800. Q: In the early 1950s, I paid 25 cents each for small boxes of playing cards that have only been printed on the picture side. They are blank on the other. I traded them with other girls. I still have many of the cards. I just took them to a licensed appraiser and he had never seen any before. I need the value. Can you help? A: You and I are smarter than the appraiser. Trading cards were a popular pastime in the 1940s and s just as sports cards are today. I remember getting the jokers from all the decks of cards used by my mother's bridge game to trade with other girls. Since there is little to no interest in this activity today, there is almost no one to buy the cards. There are several playing-card clubs that meet, have printed publications and collect old playing cards, some going back 100 years. Members might be interested, but it depends on what the printed side looks like. Q: Help me find information on my mother's dishes. The name of the company is Vanity Fair Dinnerware, the pattern is Nancy Lee. The dishes have pink and blue flowers on the edge and gold trim. My parents were married in 1938 and these were a wedding gift. I'd like to fill in the set. Can you help? A: The maker of your dishes is hard to find, although the dishes in Nancy Lee pattern are available online from matching services and shops that advertise on the major shopping sites. One site suggests they were made by Canonsburg Pottery in Pennsylv ania, which was open from 1909 to 1978. We found a vegetable bowl with imperfections marked down 50 percent to $16. Vanity Fair may be a name used on dishes made for a special customer like a store to sell or to use as a promotion gift. Q: My son bought a Knights of Pythias ceremonial sword and scabbard at an estate sale several years ago and gave it to me in the 1970s. The handle is black leather with some gold wrap. A helmeted head with a lion on top is at the end of the hand. The shield has "U" and "R" with a lily between them. "FCB" is on the blade cover with a figure of Hercules below it. The blade is in beautiful condition, silver with gilt paint designs. It says "The E.R. Armstrong Co., Detroit, Mich." near the hilt. It's 39 inches long. I'm downsizing, and I wonder if it has any value. A: The Order of Knights of Pythias is a fraternal organization founded in 1864 in Washington, D.C. It was the first fraternal organization chartered by Congress. The letters "FCB" stand for "Friendship, Charity, Benevolence," the motto of the Knights of Pythias. "U" and "R" stand for "Uniform Rank," a uniformed group that was formed in 1878 and marched in parades and processions. The lily was the symbol of the Uniformed Rank. The U.R. was removed as an official branch of the Knights of Pythias after 1950. There were different swords for different ranks. The end with a knight's head and a lion on top (the pommel) indicates you have a sword for a Sir Knight E.A. Armstrong Co. was a manufacturer of military equipment and regalia for fraternal organizations in Detroit. The value of the sword is $250.

The design was inspired by furniture from many countries and would make a good accent piece in a plain modern room.
FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 B3 FLORIDA WRITERSA haunting debut novel with spirited pacing and surprising twists The Bricklayer of Albany Park by Terry John Malik. Blank Slate Press. 342 pages. Trade paperback $16.99. A psychological thriller with a strong dose of procedural detail, Mr. Maliks debut novel is the surprisingly solid achievement of a man who had never before attempted fiction writing. Its success is largely dependent on an impressive amount of well-integrated research, a masterful understanding of Chicago, and an equally keen grasp of extreme mental illness. The author provides plenty of surprises for his readers, as well as a torrent of suspense. Most of the novel is presented through two alternating perspectives. One narrative voice is that of Detective Francis (Frank) Vincenti, a once-aimless young man who has become a stellar investigator for the Chicago Police Department. In this way he is quite unlike his childhood friend, Tony Protettore, who was constantly preoccupied with thoughts of joining the police force. Readers learn of Franks odd friendship with and training by ex-cop Thomas Aquinas Foster, his CPD partnership with Sean Kelly and his disastrous marriage to Beth, an aspiring lawyer. The other narrator is simply known, through much of the novel, as Anthony. A serial killer who hunts down, punishes and eradicates child molesters, hes a meticulous planner (though sometimes his plans go wrong). Mr. Malik provides the gory details of Anthonys crimes and stresses the killers interest in being celebrated for his work in cleansing Chicago of those who exploit children. Anthony stages his murders and the places where the mutilated corpses will be discovered. He thrives on publicity, and he baits the police officers whose efforts to protect children are insufficient. While Anthony understandably lives and works alone, Frank has his place in the company of his police department colleagues. Frank is part of the team pursuing the serial killer, and it is Franks attention that Anthony seems most drawn to attract. And Frank has gained a reputation for being adept at entering a killers mind though his special talent brings him no pleasure and often puts him on the edge of mental breakdown. Both men seem to have been victims of abuse and parental deprivation. And both are out to bring criminals to justice or to their demise. In spite of their demons, or perhaps because of them, the author manages to allow some sympathy for Frank and Anthony to color the novel. Thomas Aquinus Foster is both a confidant and mentor. He carefully guides Frank (and Sean as well) and suggests various ways of understanding the wily serial killer they all wish to bring down. In the last major segment of the novel, Foster becomes the third narrator. As his insights and voice convey the concluding stages of the narrative action, the relevance of his background and needs emerges more clearly. The backgrounding that sets the plot and characters into motion remains relevant as the author complicates the investigatory and psychological aspects of his carefully honed tale. The Chicago neighborhoods (one in particular), restaurants and residences are wellestablished factors in the novels overall impact. Though there are many gruesome scenes in this hard-pulsing story, its just about impossible to put the book down. About the authorTerry John Malik is a Chicagoan to the core. Born and raised in the city he loves, son of a Chicago fireman, he now explores the dark back streets and alleys of the citys imagination. A graduate of the University of Notre Dame, where he majored in English, and of Loyola University School of Law, he brings to his work a wide variety of life experiences. He taught English for several years in the Archdiocese of Chicago School System; designed computer systems for an international accounting firm; worked with distressed borrowers as a banker for the largest bank in Chicago; practiced law for 28 years, appearing in federal courts across the nation; became the president of a financially troubled high school; administered a foundation that provided scholarship funds for disadvantaged inner city girls; and created websites for local merchants and nonprofits. Throughout his many careers, he has continued to hone his writing skills. A Sanibel Island resident since 2012, he has two other thrillers in the works. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com MALIK

In 1839, William Henry Fox Talbot dazzled the Royal Society in London when he presented a new technological advance that was capable of fixing an image created by light on paper. Dont miss the Curators Conversation with Tim B. Wride, curator of photography at the Norton, who will speak about Talbot, whose work would result in the use of negatives to make print images, which many photographers still use despite the advances of digital photography. The kids will get a lesson in the theories of photography by making a photogram in the DIY Art Workshop. Participants will use photosensitive paper and light to make images.

Dramawise for theater buffs If you enjoy talking about the finer points of theater and analyzing every facet of a performance, from staging to lighting to casting and storytelling, join others for Dramawise, a three-part ancillary program offered by Palm Beach Dramaworks in support of Equus, its latest offering, onstage May 15 through June 3. Equus, by Peter Shaffer, is the story of a psychiatrist who has been asked to treat a young man who has maimed several horses. Its an especially interesting play for discussion because of its psychological manifestations. The young man in the play has strong, even pathological, religiously-based feelings towards horses. Based on a brief news story about a young man who blinded six horses, Shaffer had to create a scenario that would explain this pathological behavior. Through Dramawise, participants learn how a production is created, and gain insights into the creative process. They may discover how all the tiny details make a production a success. In Act 1, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. May 17, Dramawise features a revealing discussion of the play and playwright, led by PBDs director of education, Gary Cadwallader. Intermission, from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., features lunch at a downtown eatery with other theater buffs where the conversation continues. Act 2 takes place back at the theater and features an informative discussion with the production team. Guests only pay for the parts they attend: All three parts: $50 members, $60 nonmembers. Intermission and Act 2: $40 members, $45 nonmembers. Act 2 only: $15 members. $20 nonmembers.

B12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYHouse got themselves an extra week of moviegoers prime attention. Of course, its not the only highprofile release this summer. What follows is my annual lighthearted look at what to expect on the big screen through July, including The Rock leaping tall buildings in a single bound, a pope documentary, and more Mission: Impossible. To borrow from one of this summers titles, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again! IN THEATERSOverboard The gender roles are reversed from the 1987 Goldie Hawn/Kurt Russell original, but the premise of shamelessly taking advantage of another persons memory loss remains the same. And were supposed to laugh about it. These are not good people.TullyCharlize Theron did well in the Diablo Cody scripted, Jason Reitman directed Young Adult (2011), and the team returns here with the story of a struggling mother (Theron) and her new nanny (Mackenzie Davis). Relatedly, this is the first time struggling mother and new nanny have been written in the same sentence. MAY 11Life of the Party A middle-aged mother (Melissa McCarthy) returns to college to finish her degree. Is McCarthy ever not the life of the party? MAY 18Deadpool 2 The trailers dont look great, but after Avengers: Infinity War it will be Josh Brolins second big-bad-comic book villain role in the span of a few weeks. Deadpool will have something witty to say about this, Im sure.Book ClubFour lifelong friends (Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, Mary Steenburgen) read Shades of Grey and good luck to the unsuspecting men having to fend off their prurient desires. If they want to. Pope Francis: A Man of His WordIf the Academy is smart, it will nominate this for Best Documentary at the Oscars, and invite the pope to the ceremony. It might bring back some of the religious/conservative viewers Hollywood has alienated the last few years. MAY 25Solo: A Star Wars Story Star Wars oversaturation continues, this time with a young Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) meeting Chewbacca and Lando for the first time. Dont trust Lando, Han! JUNE 1Action PointJohnny Knoxville, of Jackass fame, runs an old school amusement park. Because nothing says responsible adult like endangering the lives of hundreds of kids. JUNE 8Oceans 8 Sandra Bullock plays Danny Oceans (George Clooney) sister in this all-female take on the heist films, this time centered on the Met Gala in New York City. Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna and more also star. Wont You Be My Neighbor?A documentary about the life of the sweaterwearing nice guy, Fred Rogers. I always thought itd be funny if, when Mr. Rogers asked someone the titular question, they aggressively said no! and slammed the door in his face. HereditaryYou can choose your friends, but not your family. When the matriarch dies, her descendants learn of their sinister, unwelcome fate. This looks creepy, spooky, and has great buzz. JUNE 15Incredibles 2 Leave it to Pixar to put all the pressure on itself by already calling its movie incredible. They seem to have the whole under promise, over deliver thing backward. Lets hope this sequel to the 2004 hit, which picks up where the original left off, lives up to its name.TagBased on the true story of the greatest game of tag ever played, one that was started by a group of kids and continued into adulthood. Ladies, if you had any hope that your boyfriend/husband would mature, let this be the final piece of evidence you need to realize it will never happen. JUNE 22Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom The dinosaurs finally meet their match, and this time it doesnt come in the form of a little girl doing gymnastics. (Thats a Jurassic Park 2 reference, for those whove understandably blocked that movie from memory: https://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=2h8rH8zxA64). JUNE 29Sicario: Day of the Soldado If you dont speak Spanish, soldado means soldier. Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro, stars of Sicario (2015), return, drug wars will be fought, and if its any good well know what day of the week the day of the soldier is by films end. JULY 6Ant-Man and the Wasp Continuing Marvel Studios domination of the universe, now AntMan (Paul Rudd) has a partner (Evangeline Lillys Wasp), and together they uncover a dark secret from the past. Nothing, however, is more daunting than knowing Michelle Pfeiffer is the Wasps mother. The First PurgeThis prequel looks at the first time America had no laws for 12 hours and all crime was legal. You know, like living in Detroit. Whitney Youll get So Emotional and Wanna Dance With Somebody during this documentary on Whitney Houston. And if youre wondering How Will I Know? about her Greatest Love Of All, thats all the more reason to watch. JULY 13SkyscraperDwayne The Rock Johnson must stop a towering inferno inside a 240story skyscraper in this 100 percent realistic new release. Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer VacationDracula needs a vacation too, right? Little does he know the captain of his luxury cruise ship, also his love interest, is Ericka Van Helsing! Its animated, so at least you only have to listen to Adam Sandlers dumb Dracula voice rather than having to watch him. JULY 20Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again Sequel to the 2008 hit, and yet another reminder of my long-standing contention that every ABBA song sounds the same. Except The Winner Takes It All thats just sad.The Equalizer 2Apparently Denzel Washington didnt equalize enough in the 2014 original, so he needs to kill bad guys again to make things more equal?

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 10-16, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY VINOIts tannin that helps a good wine ageWhen you come right down to it, wine is a highly complex soup of juices and naturally-occurring chemicals created by fermentation, which is itself hysterically complicated. In fact, Ive been told that chemists dont fully understand exactly how fermentation works, even to this day. But when we talk about red wine, the tannin topic is always right up front. It occurs everywhere in nature: tree bark, wood, leaves and the skins of fruit. In wine, it contributes a quality called astringency, which creates a dry, chalky feeling in the mouth and a kind of bitterness in the middle of your tongue. If you want to discover what tannin really feels like (and its a feeling, not a flavor) put a used wet teabag in your mouth. As W.C. Fields once remarked, It feels like the Russian army marched through my mouth in stocking feet. Depending on how dry a wine feels on your palate, you can determine whether it has a high or low level of tannin. Now all this sounds awful, but tannin is a major structural component of red wine and is one of the ingredients that helps a good wine age and develop. The level of tannin in wine, whether strong or weak, depends on how the wine is made. If the juice sits on the skins for a long time, more tannin will be extracted, and the levels will be higher. So will the overall complexity of the wine. Tannins are also a natural antioxidant, so they can help preserve and protect the wine. This explains why wines like Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz can age for long periods. And as we all know, antioxidants have sensational health benefits, so go ahead and enjoy that second glass. The word tannin is actually quite ancient. Plant extracts are used to cure and process leather, which is why its called tanning. They turn soft leather into something thats hard and durable enough to make belts and shoes out of. Its important to understand the role of tannins in the structure and enjoyment of wine. First, higher levels mean we can lay down the wine and age it, coming back for more enjoyment a few years later. Second, knowing which foods are high in tannin lets us put together some interesting and complementary combinations. For example, walnuts are extremely tannic, which is why you get that Russian army dry feeling in your mouth when you eat them. But pair a glass of big red wine with a dish like steak with gorgonzola walnut butter and get ready for some heavenly sensations. So how do winemakers control tannins? Some grapes are naturally more tannic than others, making selection important. So is deciding when to harvest. Then theres the judgment of how long to leave the juice on the skins, and the decision whether to de-stem the bunches before crushing them. Stems have high concentrations of tannins, too. Some winemakers use a process called micro-oxygenation, which pumps air through the wine to soften tannins and create a more pleasant mouthfeel. The list goes on. Ive read lengthy essays about how tannins contribute to the structure and mouthfeel of wines. We talked a bit about astringency and bitterness above, and these are major characteristics which, in proper balance with alcohol, acidity, fruit sugars and other ingredients, turn grape juice into the beverage we all know and love. Here are some new recommendations: Besieged Red Blend Sonoma 2014 ($12) The Ravenswood winery in Sonoma is a pioneer of Zinfandel, and this red blend shows it does other things well, too. A mlange of Petite Sirah, Carignane, Zinfandel, Syrah, Alicante Bouschet, and Barbera, its concentrated and purple-black in the glass. There are extracted flavors of sweet black mixed fruit, smoke and currant. WW 86-87. Frank Family Chardonnay Carneros 2015 ($40) A stunner. This wine contains all the right flavors and plenty of them. Oak, melon, butter, hay, vanilla and juicy tropical fruit are all perfectly balanced. A favorite, and well worth the price. WW 95.Ask the Wine WhispererQ. What is carbonic maceration? Ross G., Las VegasA. Rather than crushing the grapes and letting the juice ferment, this process loads the grapes into a large closed vat, allowing the weight of the grapes above to crush the ones below. Since fermentation releases carbon dioxide, most of the juice ferments inside the grape, producing fruity wine with very low tannins.

Enter the Secret Garden in Boynton Beach. For both food entrepreneurs even Clarence Birdseye started small and those wanting to work hands-on in professional kitchens, Secret Garden, part of the Community Caring Center, is a kickstarter and offers programs to help learn facets of the culinary profession. Best part: Theyre free. Sherry Johnson, director of the operation, has fostered culinary entrepreneurs for over a decade at the caf/garden/bakery. Community grants allow for the free classes that help a food truck operator get started, or a hot sauce maker get on the shelves at a grocery, or get a budding chef into a pro kitchen or catering business as a prep cook. For Food Prep, students learn about sanitation, food-borne illness, OSHA and proper food handling and storage. Basic kitchen skills are taught, and there is state testing for food handling at the end. Entrepreneurs learn how to start a business, including record-keeping, insurance info and business plan development. Branding, and social media integration are a part of it. All students are helped with classroom materials, chefs attire, help with a resume, and readiness for a job fair aimed at culinary networking at the beginning of the 2018-2019 season. After theyre established, the students can pay $150 a month for use of the fully-equipped kitchen to hone their products and perfect their menus. Classes for this session begin May 21 for the Culinary Entrepreneur class, and May 22 for Food Prep classes. Its a 9-week program. Students must be income-certified, but income does not determine eligibility to participate.

Its simple in its construction and complex in the layers of flavors. Chefs rub hearty, toasted bread fresh garlic and crushed tomato for a starter to everything from lunch to dinner to snacks. At Basque, the only difference I see between what I gorged myself on in Spain and the dish presented here is the quantities of the tomatoes Chef Miguel Angel Rebolledo is far more generous with his toppings, and thats all the better for South Florida diners.

Next door to a gym hint, hint but also near a Dunkin Donuts. Jan Norris, firstname.lastname@example.org FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE Two things fuel Basques Executive Chef Miguel Angel Rebolledo each morning a walk to the beach and Cuban coffee. I love the water, says Chef Rebolledo, who lives near the Atlantic Ocean in Lake Worth. I go every morning. I need it. In Spain, I could see the water from every corner of my city. He brews himself a cup of Cuban coffee to get him going each morning, then follows it up with another an hour or two later when he stops at Havana Restaurant on his way to Basque at Hotel Biba. Havana is close to where the food truck is parked, he says. That is, the food truck, or mobile kitchen, he drives to Basque, his new tapas restaurant on Belvedere Road, east of Dixie Highway. Chef Rebolledo parks the 22-foot, state-of-the-art kitchen outside Basques courtyard, an alfresco dining space with bistro tables decorated with purple hydrangeas in terracotta pots. The location includes an adjoining indoor dining room, bar and a second alfresco dining area. The truck/kitchen with indoor/outdoor dining concept was the idea of marketing executive and hospitality consultant Manuel Bornia and Biba Hotel owners Ali Amirniroumand and Morad Amirsaleh. They wanted to bring sparkle to the boutique hotel, built in 1929. With its polished beams, Spanish-tiled bar and fashionable chandeliers made of clustered glass orbs, Basque is a good fit for the El Cid historic district. Chef Rebolledo is, too. A native of Santander, Spain, Chef Rebolledo began cooking with his dad at age 6 and graduated from the Culinary Institute of Cantabria, Spain. He moved to the U.S. in 2001 and first worked in Salt Lake City and Las Vegas. He worked in New York for a while, but wasnt fond of the city. Its too fast-paced, the people are too angry, and the weather is too cold, he says. His experience is extensive. He was executive chef of ThinkFoodGroup by Jose Andres, overseeing all restaurant operations at Jaleo in Virginia and Maryland, Bazaar Meat in Las Vegas, and Chinachilcano and MiniBar in Washington, D.C. He also was executive chef and conceptual chef for all Bulla Gastrobar locations in Coral Gables, Doral, Winter Park, Tampa, Atlanta and Plano, Texas. Chef Rebolledo says hes excited to bring classic and modern interpretations of Spanish food to Palm Beach County. Hotel Biba with its rich 89-year history and beautiful tropical courtyard, has a warm, hospitable vibe, he says, making it the ideal setting for Basques thoughtfully curated food and beverage menu. Basque is, Chef Rebolledo says, an authentic Spanish restaurant. We bring the olive oil, the rice, the peppers, etc. from Spain, he says. To balance, we buy all the produce and seafood locally we have red snapper from Florida and the Key West shrimp. He recommends a pan con tomate, lata (salmon avocado is his favorite), as well as the remolacha ensalada. Follow it up with a tapa from our Classicas (gambas is my pick) and Moderna (huevos basque my pick), he says. I would recommend a paella (for two) or our fantastic fideos negros (squid, Spanish noodles, octopus, calamari, clams and shrimp). Save room for dessert. I have crafted a selection of ice creams and sorbets that are remarkable (saffron toasted rice is my choice). The chef is single and works 18-hour days. When he finds free time, he enjoys swimming, soccer and spear fishing. Chef Miguel Angel Rebolledo Age: 40 Hometown: Santander, Spain a fishing village in the Cantabria region. Restaurant: Basque at Hotel Biba, 320 Belvedere Road, West Palm Beach, 561557-7875, www.eatdrinkbasque.com. Open 5-10 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday. Brunch Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Complimentary valet parking available. Mission: My goal is to give guests the ideal dining experience. I invite guests to come experience our alfresco dining, select their favorite sangria and start the evening off with a selection from our boards. Cuisine: Authentic Spanish cuisine with some ingredients coming directly from Spain and others locally produced. Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? Spring Step shoes. What advice would you give someone who wants to be a chef? For any profession, do what you love the most, work hard and be true to yourself. That is the secret to being happy.

Looking backward, Bierly-Drake Associates embraces the evolution of ideasforward William Bainbridge Steele (left) and Christopher Drake of Bierly-Drake Associates sit with their dog Shadow. BY AMY WOODSawoods@ oridaweekly.com"We are not tied to the past but interpret it, appreciating it for its inspiration, while at the same time looking to the future for the evolution of ideas." Those words of wisdom appear on the home page of Bierly-Drake Associates website, summing up the mission of the interior-design firm of Boston and Palm Beach fame. Christopher Drake, who runs the business half-named for its late partner Lee Bierly, described a new project on Brazilian Avenue as a perfect example of the evolution of ideas. It was a house we had done 20 years ago, Mr. Drake said. When I saw it, I said, Wait a second, I recognize that door. He had transformed the former rooming home for restaurant workers into a pair of townhouses with a party wall. The job included hardware, millwork, molding and windows, as well as the glass-and-iron door. The 5,000-square-foot, two-story spaces had high ceilings, lots of stone and large expanses of plaster. What we thought was really terrific 20 years ago was really less inviting today, Mr. Drake said. A lot of our feelings about interior design had changed. He carpeted the stairs, textured the walls and incorporated chair rails and wainscot. COVER STORY 4 At Home MAY 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY
FLORIDA WEEKLY MAY 2018 5 The goal: to turn the bright-and-fabulous trend of the past into a cozier, softer and more welcoming experience that celebrates good taste, high quality and personal style. Weve sort of edited our vision somewhat, Mr. Drake said. Its a sophistication that I think comes over time. He joined forces five years ago with William Bainbridge Steele, and together they designed Andreas Retreat, an elaborate bathroom, for the Kips Bay Palm Beach Show House in December. Between the two of them, they have worked on more than one dozen show houses in South Florida. Here are their thoughts on design. Mr. Drake: I think that if theres a philosophy, you really have to understand and work with your clients. Thats the first thing. Second, it is your job to come up with a plan to enable them to get where they want to go even if they dont know where that is. Mr. Steele: Our approach to design is classic, traditional, clean and tailored, with a bit of a sophisticated, perhaps unexpected, edge. How has that evolved over the past 38 years? Mr. Drake: Its the realization that there is no ultimate perfect design. The reality is design is a constantly changing entity, and I think thats a very exciting thing. Mr. Steele: I think with time one must evolve and grow. Concepts and schemes that Bierly-Drake presented five years ago vs. today's presentations are clearly different. Is there any one constant, or signature look, in a Bierly-Drake design? Mr. Drake: No. As guys, we tend to be somewhat more tailored in our approach to design even if were doing a very feminine space. I like saturated color, and I also like very fresh, crisp whites. Mr. Steele: A Bierly-Drake constant signature is a flawless and complete installation. We do not piecemeal an installation. If every component is not perfect, we will push back on an installation. Is there a look that says South Florida or Palm Beach? Mr. Drake: The issue in New England is, its a great place to be and a great place to be from, but the architecture typically follows a certain pattern. Florida gives you the opportunity to expand your design horizon. Any time you do a space, it has to speak to where it is. Thats really key. You have to have a reference to that. If you break that reference, it really is a folly. Mr. Steele: Palm Beach is all about light, airy and sunshine. A Palm Beach home should reflect this and instill this feeling vs. that of a ski house in Aspen or a farm house in New England. What is your favorite design trend right now? Mr. Drake: Were getting into using a lot of vintage materials that we used a long time ago Lucite, nickel, mirrors. Design, I think, is becoming less serious, less Nancy Reagan-ish, where everything had to be elevated. Theres a lot of individuality in design. There arent looks anymore. Mr. Steele: Our favorite trend is wherever our inspiration takes us. Trends come and go too quickly. We focus more on timeless design. How do you balance your career with the numerous nonprofit show houses you do? Mr. Drake: You just suck it up and do it. You put in extra hours. The point is it is a community thing, its a successful community thing, and its a good thing for everybody. Mr. Steele: We believe it is essential to give back to the communities where we live. Participating in a charitable event like a show house allows us to support the places we call home. What is your favorite place for relaxation? Mr. Drake: South Florida and also Nantucket. Mr. Steele: We don't have just one place; however, our best down time is the second we step onto the land in Nantucket or onto the greens of a fairway. Who are you following / watching, design-wise? Mr. Drake: I would say that I dont do that at all. Im very aware of whats happening in our industry, but we really focus on what we do, and what we do is challenging. Mr. Steele: We love watching the youth of our industry. Seeing what unjaded inspired eyes can create is exciting.

ORGANIZINGUrban Simplicity makes life easier with every bin, box it labelsFounder Korinne Belock went from organizing political campaigns to organizing personal closets BY AMY WOODSawoods@ oridaweekly.comSpring is in the air, and in South Florida, it signals alligator-mating season, the start of Major League Baseball and those longed-for low-humidity days. Tradition has it, though, that the turn of the calendar is a clarion call for cleaning. Cleaning during this particular time of year involves much more than dusting, mopping and vacuuming to keep ones home-sweet-home just that. Instead, the cleaning in order is a thorough, top-to-bottom, cabinetsclosets-and-cupboards undertaking. There are few rites of spring more satisfying than the annual clean, reads Martha Stewarts Homekeeping Handbook. For many people, however, the pleasure comes only after the work is finished. The work includes everything from dry-cleaning the drapes to removing stains from the upholstery and from washing the windows to wiping down the walls. Maybe the silverware needs polishing and the floors need waxing, as well. Your spring cleaning may never become effortless, but you can make the project more manageable and even enjoyable, according to the book. With nature renewing itself outdoors as flowers bloom and plants sprout, homeowners can stay in sync by freshening up their sacred spaces. Whether in the bedroom, the bathroom or beyond, care should be taken not only to clean but also to declutter. Enter Urban Simplicity, a Palm Beach-based professional organizing company run by a former political-campaign consultant whose 1,925-square-foot, 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom home reflects her obsession with order. People are always like, Do you practice what you preach? Is your home organized? 39-year-old Korinne Belock said. Both answers are yes. Im very lucky because my husband is organized, Mrs. Belock said. Thats half the battle. And we dont have children, which also helps with the organization in my house. Whether striving to save a marriage because of a sloppy spouse or trying to find a place for the trippable toys left out by unruly urchins, her mission is equal parts storage and sublimity. A beautiful space is the end goal, but more than anything, it has to fit your life, Mrs. Belock said. It has to be maintainable. Most clients come to her overwhelmed by the messes they have amassed, not knowing where to start a situation she found herself in while trying to get then-New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg elected for the third time. I remember sitting at my desk with the chaos of politics happening around me and thinking, If I could go home and just organize my closet, I can gain control of my own life again, Mrs. Belock said. This was the light-bulb moment for me in starting my new career. I knew there were others who felt the way I did, and I knew exactly how to help them. She has scads of success stories, including a woman who had a challenge with tidiness and now is a neatnick. She aced organization, Mrs. Belock said. She texts me pictures all the time. Look at what I did with my shoes. To see someone happier in their home its so gratifying. Tips for spring cleaning / organizing>> Priority prep: Make a list of home projects, ranking them by importance. >> Group effort: Create chores that tackle different rooms in the house so everyone in the family participates. >> Donate instead of ditch: Identify a charity to give unneeded or unwanted items. (See Urban Simplicitys Charities of Choice for suggestions.) >> Use the one-in, one-out rule: For each new item bought, get rid of an old item. >> Contain to maintain: Use labeled bins and boxes to keep belongings at bay.Urban Simplicitys charities of choice>> Church Mouse For high-end clothing and home goods, this is a go-to donation drop that bene ts outreach programs for The Church of Bethesda-by-the Sea. 374 S.

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

Grand Classicas inaugural cruise to Bahamas a breeze BY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@ oridaweekly.comMy cruise history isnt extensive. Long ago, I sailed on the Fantome, a 679-ton schooner owned by Windjammer Barefoot Cruises. I helped raise the sails, sat spellbound on deck each night as the Australian captain regaled mates with tall tales of tall ships, washed down a tad too many rum drinks, and, unfortunately, battled sea sickness. Despite never really having found my sea legs on the Fantome, the experience left me with mostly fond memories. Not so fond, however, that I hurried back for another go, but enough for me to say yes when I had an opportunity to be a passenger on the first voyage of the Grand Classica out of the Port of Palm Beach on April 13. Time to test the waters and my sea legs I determined. The Grand Classica, a 1,680-passenger ship, joined its sister ship, the Grand Celebration, and marks the second vessel in Bahama Paradise Cruise Lines fleet. The two are projected to carry more than 500,000 passengers each year and be the largest contributor to tourism in Grand Bahama Island. International tourists will make up 10 percent to 15 percent of the passengers, according to Bahama Paradise Cruise Lines CEO, Oneil Khosa. The two ships also are expected to draw many visitors who, like me, live within driving distance of the port. Built by Fincantieri Shipyards in 1991, the Classica underwent major refurbishments in 2014, and again last October, when Bahamas Paradise acquired the 10-deck ship. The Grand Classica has 658 staterooms and a full complement of dining, entertainment and recreational activities. When guests board the ship, they are greeted in the Central Atrium with its large, glass sculpture and guest service and shore excursion desks. The ships decks are named for the islands of the Bahamas; for example, deck 5 is the Bimini and deck 8 is the Abacos. All the ships activities and entertainment take place on decks 8 through 14, where guests will find a range of dining options, as well as live entertainment, large casino, a spa and two pools. Entertainment venues around the ship feature live music, Vegas-style shows, comedy and a casino. I was pleased with the ease of boarding and exiting the ship at the Port of Palm Beach, which was both wellstaffed and well-run. Minimal time was spent waiting in lines. Four hundred thirty of the rooms were (like mine) ocean view staterooms. Besides a bed, each has a desk, table, chair, flat-screen TV, porthole window and bathroom with shower. There are 216 inside staterooms with similar amenities, but without a window, and two roomy junior suites with a living room with pull-out sofa and large picture window, along with a queen-sized bed. I worried the ocean staterooms would be confining. But no other passengers I spoke to had any complaints about the size. Rooms were clean and tidy. There was some grousing from guests about lack of Wi-Fi, a situation expected to be remedied for future cruises. Another nit: There was only one outlet in rooms where passengers could charge a phone, and it wasnt easy to find those. Then again, the cruise was a good chance to unplug and enjoy all that the ship had to offer. Kudos to the staff, who clearly worked hard to please. Things didnt always go perfectly, but not for a lack of effort. The muster drill, a mandatory exercise to familiarize guests and crew with the location (musterstation) where they are to assemble in the unlikely event of an emergency, didnt go smoothly. There was much confusion among passengers. However, since this was the first cruise, Im guessing muster drills of the future will, indeed, pass muster. While docked in Freeport, I took an island tour with stops at the Perfume Factory, which offered a behind-thescenes look at a working fragrance production operation; Port Lucaya Marketplace, with shops, restaurants and a straw market; and Garden of the Groves, a tropical garden with a replica of a chapel from early logging days; and lunch at the Grand Lucayan Resort. Food on the Classica wasnt outstanding, but there was plenty of it, mostly served buffet-style. For an extra fee, guests could dine in a specialty restaurant such as the Admirals Steak and Seafood restaurant, which offers a fivecourse gourmet meal, or The Rock Grill, an interactive experience for dinner outside, where guests can cook meals tableside on a lava rock. The best meal I had aboard was at the Rock Grill. I cooked the steak shish kabobs myself on a lava rock at the table. The steak was really tender, and the entire experience was fun. In fact, I witnessed a whole lot of people, young and old, having fun on the ship. Lots of smiles. Lots of laughs. A good reason to book a cruise. Another good reason: The introductory price specials cant be beat. Bahama Paradise Cruise Line is offering two-night cruises for as low as $129 a great value. And, Im happy to report, sea sickness never reared its ugly head on this trip. That meant smooth sailing for me!

FLORIDA WEEKLY MAY 2018 11True Treasures always accepts the finest furniture and home dcorAt True Treasures I am asked how we maintain the highest quality of goods for sale. The short answer is, it is not easy. First and foremost, we will not take anything we cant sell. It is our obligation to provide value to our consignors and our customers. It is our mission statement to make our customers and consignors simultaneously delighted. I learned very quickly that the cause of disappointment was unrealistic expectations. Therefore, we discuss with each consignor the value of their goods so they know what to expect. If you expect $1 and we sell it for $2 a consignor is ecstatic. Conversely if one expects $1 and we sell it for 50 cents, there is significant disappointment and thus a phone call when we send the check. Communication is the key to success, and we practice it every day. The question is where do the goods come from? There are three sources of goods. First they come from all over south Florida. Our willingness is to go to Miami, Naples or Orlando if the goods are valuable. I wish customers would come to shop as far as we are willing to go to retrieve the finest goods. We do receive many of our consignments from the finest homes in Palm Beach County. Many of these consignments are initiated by those in real estate sales. When one moves here in South Florida, the furniture often does not go to the new home or new location. We provide a service to remove furniture prior to closing in a timely manner. We also consign many jobs from homes that are sold furnished and the new owners have no use for the existing furniture. I personally will go to a home to inspect the furniture as not all pictures tell the complete story. Another source of consignment goods is manufacturers in Miami, Fort Lauderdale or Palm Beach County that consign items to us from their showrooms or warehouses. I have just returned from High Point, N.C., to establish relationships with companies that seek to reduce their inventory of new, grade-A goods. The amount of companies I write about are plentiful and their goods can be extraordinary. It is a win-win for both companies. Finally, it is clear that we want your fine consignments. We will merchandise them, sell them and pay you for them. We provide a service and we are good at it. If you have items to show us send us pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org or call any of our stores to discuss how we can help you sell your furniture and home dcor.
