In 2005, after serving six years in the Navy, she was thrilled when the place hired her as a science educator. Ten years and several promotions later, shes the new CEO of the West Palm Beach destination.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY You sometimes question how can I be so unhappy when Im married to such a charming and successful husband? But then you remember how he constantly puts you down in front of your family. How he belittles you and questions your intelligence. And how he constantly controls you, manipulates you, and prevents you from having normal relationships with friends and loved ones. Youre not a greedy person. All you want is to be happy, and feel appreciated in your life, and in your marriage. But you know deep down that this is never going to get better. Your husband is not changing. In fact, hes just getting worse. Divorce is something you never thought youd ever experience, but you know you must leave the marriage if youre ever going to have a chance at happiness. And you know nows the time. Your children have grown into adults and youre not getting any younger. But at the same time youre worried. You dont know where to start, or how all this needs to happen. What you do know is hes going to make things dicult as youve seen how hes dealt before with others that have crossed him. You feel all alone. Like a prisoner of your own circumstances. Youre worried that nobody will see you and your situation for what it really is. At times, you feel like it will be impossible to ever get out of this unless you leave only with the shirt on your back. But its not going to be that simple, as you need to secure your nancial future. All of this makes you think about whether you should just put your energy into saving the marriage (again). If you identify with this DRAMATIZATION youre likely married to a husband with a personality disorder. Hes probably a Narcissist. If youve never heard this before you should take some time to read up on narcissism. Everything will probably start to make more sense. Try your best to realize that you are not alone. Everyone, including you, deserves to be happy and feel appreciated. And just as you decided to do what ultimately led you to your husband, you can also make the decision to be free of him. While your divorce will likely not be hassle free, there are some basic things you can learn that can minimize your husbands ability to make the divorce process harder than it needs to be.

COMMENTARYCowsWhat many people dont know about cows is like what many people dont know about New York, where cows once thrived in its namesake city theyre not just cows. Theyre also science on the hoof. (And New York is not just New York City. Its also a vast and beautiful land of small towns, farms and wilderness.) When you see cows along the roads in Florida or anywhere else, therefore, youre also looking at evolutionary biology. Every one of those cows is the consequence, in part, of human design, inspired by a still-robust beef economy. Herefords, Brafords, Angus, Charolais, Santa Gertrudis, Holsteins, Brangus, Brahman and Cracker cows, the criollo-type breed that could survive transAtlantic voyages sometimes of months in small sailing vessels and then live in the Florida scrub, first brought to North America by the Spanish conquistadors all of them are here in the Sunshine State, although the finest cows in North America now exist only in one place: near Coldwater, Kan. More on that shortly. About 94.4 million cows live in the U.S. today, according to government estimates, with the biggest cattle producers on the list the ones you might imagine: Texas, with 12.5 million cows and 13.24 percent of the cow population, followed by Nebraska, Kansas, California and Oklahoma, each with populations ranging from about 5 million to 6.8 million cows. Colorado, where the Nash side of my family ranched, is No. 10, with 2.8 million cows. And Florida has fallen from its one-time status of second-biggest cow producing state (weve had cows here for 500 years) to No. 18 on the list today, with 1.63 million hardworking American cows. As a cow-calf state, Floridas bulls and heifers produce about 800,000 calves for beef production each year. Farmers also manage about 100,000 dairy cows that can produce 2 billion pounds of raw milk every year, according to www. Freshfromflorida.com. All those cows create a lot of flatulence and manure a problem for the vast natural water systems intimately connected to grazing and dairy lands, but thats another cow story. If you dont like cows, you could move to a place with few or none: Rhode Island, for example, has only 5,000 cows. And New York City nowadays has none, to my knowledge. Although once while riding a city bus through the South Bronx or Spanish Harlem I rounded a corner and came into sudden view of a small, miserable-looking donkey, a red rooster and about four hens, all tucked into a dirt yard the size of a big bedroom surrounded by a little fence up against a six or seven-story building, itself pressed against scores of similar buildings. Maybe some enterprising person has a cow as well as a donkey in the Big Apple so lets put New York City down on the list for one cow, just in case. I mention this because Im proud of my cousin, Jane Nash Deewall, who grew up on the Nash Ranch in Colorado just like my mother did. Her father, B.F. Nash, carried on the line-bred Herefords my grandfather, Walter Nash, started. Jane has continued that breeding operation with her husband, cattleman Mike Deewall, on the ranch his family long-ago homesteaded outside Coldwater. Once called (accurately, Im certain) the hardest-working woman in Commanche County or probably most other places Jane also works smart, which is why she was able to post this passing comment on her Facebook page one recent day: We have been told by at least two of our bull customers that their F1 calves outweigh their straight blacks by 90 to 100 pounds every year at weaning. I think that is what line breeding can do for a breeding program. The woman who said that, with her husband, just received the prestigious Graduate of Distinction award for 2018, given to those with degrees in Animal Science from Oklahoma State University and outstanding records of achievement and service in the field of Animal Agriculture. In 2014, the Deewalls also received the American Hereford Association Centennial Breeders Award. Its the science of, the caring for and the many years of hard work put into cows not only in Texas, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Kansas, for example, but also in Florida. Hats off to science on the hoof, and its remarkable practitioners, the cattlewomen and cattlemen of America. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com B.F.

A4 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY OPINIONTrump is proving to be the most fearlessly pro-life president President Trumps critics were apoplectic last week when the president referred to MS-13 gang members as animals. Of course, no one should be dehumanized. Yet many of the same people expressing outrage that Trump would dehumanize vicious gang members have no problem dehumanizing innocent, unborn children. Trump has stood up for the humanity of the unborn child like no president in recent memory. And this is why so many Christian conservatives stick with him. Witness the foot-stomping standing ovation the president received May 22 at the annual Campaign for Life gala of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List. Not only was Trump reportedly the first president to address this incredible organization in its 26-year history, he used the occasion to deliver on yet another pro-life promise, one that his Republican predecessors could not, or would not, fulfill: He announced a new rule to stop indirect taxpayer funding of abortion through the Title X family planning program. When I ran for office, I pledged to stand for life, and as president, thats exactly what I have done, Trump declared. Today, we have kept another promise. My administration has proposed a new rule to prohibit Title X funding from going to any clinic that performs abortions. Any organization receiving Title X funds will be required to establish a bright line of both physical and financial separation between its family planning activities and any program or facility that performs or refers women for abortions. Since 1976, federal law has prohibited use of federal funds for abortion. But today, Planned Parenthood clinics that receive federal family planning funds often essentially refer women for on-site abortions. Under Trumps Protect Life Rule, this will no longer be permitted. The Protect Life Rule is a victory prolife Americans have been awaiting for three decades. President Ronald Reagan first issued a version of the rule in 1988, but pro-abortion groups challenged it in court. The George H.W. Bush administration fought them all the way to the Supreme Court and won: In 1991, the court upheld the Reagan rule in Rust v. Sullivan. But the ruling came too late; Bill Clinton soon took office and withdrew the rule. When George W. Bush was elected, he failed to reinstate the rule during his eight years in office. My former White House colleague Yuval Levin recently wrote that the reinstatement effort was abandoned in the spring of 2006, in a deputies-level policy gathering that was one of the most contentious meetings I ever witnessed in government. In the Trump administration, there were apparently no contentious meetings or hand-wringing over the impact on Capitol Hill. He just did it. This fearlessness when it comes to the cause of life is what warms the hearts of Christian conservatives and makes them loyal to the president. The left is, of course, outraged. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) called Trumps action despicable, and The New York Times editorial page complained that the rule could devastate groups like Planned Parenthood. That is, unfortunately, a gross overstatement, as Planned Parenthood gets three-quarters of its federal funds through Medicaid, which would not be impacted. But it is music to pro-life ears. And despite Democrats anger, the new rule should have broad public support. A Marist poll released in January found that 60 percent of Americans oppose using tax dollars for abortion, while only 36 percent approve. Since taking office, Trump has taken many steps to ensure our tax dollars are not used to subsidize the taking of innocent human life. He got a record number of conservative judges confirmed during his first year; allowed states to defund Planned Parenthood; defunded the pro-abortion United Nations Population Fund; restored and expanded the Mexico City policy banning taxpayer funds for groups that perform abortions overseas; and exempted organizations with moral objections against providing abortifacient drugs from the Obamacare Health and Human Services mandate. He is, as SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser put it Tuesday, the most pro-life president in our nations history. Every life is sacred, and ... every child is a precious gift from God, Trump declared Tuesday night. We know that every life has meaning and that every life is totally worth protecting. Trump is doing everything in his power to protect those lives. That is why pro-life conservatives stick with him. The Chinese threat isnt just tradeWe are currently engaged in a highprofile negotiation that may or may not succeed in getting the Chinese to buy more of our stuff. This is a fine goal as far as it goes, although that isnt very far. It doesnt matter if China buys $14 billion of our soybeans or $25 billion of our soybeans it is still a mercantilist, revisionist power representing a significant geopolitical challenge. China isnt just a commercial but a strategic competitor with the United States. It seeks to restore its former national glory, establish hegemony in East Asia and unravel Pax Americana. President Xi Jinping champions a national revival (The Chinese Dream) that flies in the face of the expectations that economic growth would soften China. China uses its economic clout to back self-interested investments around the world and has poured resources into a decades-long military buildup. As it has grown in strength, it has become increasingly assertive in making maritime claims in the region. It harasses its neighbors it wants to cow into submission, as we are shouldered aside. We have long failed to grapple with the Chinese threat because we have believed that rising per capita income would do our work for us by inevitably democratizing China; because corporate America covets the Chinese market; and because, as Miles Maochun Yu of the Naval Academy points out, we are always playing the China card in pursuit of some other strategic objective currently, the denuclearization of North Korea rather than focusing on China in its own right. At the moment, we are in the midst of a collective national freakout about Russia, a second-rate power. Chinas economy is eight times bigger than Russias. While Russia is associated with the weapons of the 20th century, China is heavily investing in high-tech weapons cyberwarfare capabilities, hypersonic rockets, anti-satellite missiles and the like. The United States cannot assume, the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission warned, it will have an enduring advantage in developing next frontier military technology. The comprehensive challenge of China deserves a comprehensive response. Diplomatically, we need to strengthen relations with all those countries on Chinas periphery that feel threatened by it, Taiwan and Japan in particular. Militarily, we need to spend more on research and development and on building up our Navy. And we need to make it clear to China, through robust patrolling, that we are committed to maintaining freedom of navigation in the region. Economically, we need a better longterm approach to Chinas mercantilism than blustery threats of tariffs. This will require allies, which means that we should return to the Trans-Pacific Partnership. The pact was designed to lock China out of creating trade norms in the region, but Trump abandoned it in a perversely self-defeating protectionist gesture. The Chinese flatter themselves that they have a long view that unstable American democracy lacks. When dealing with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, apparently desperate for any agreement he can wave around as a victory in the much-advertised looming trade war, they must feel confirmed in their belief. We need a strategy to convince them otherwise, and it will be the work of decades.

Now you can enjoy the life-changing benets of a beautiful smile and a comfortable bite that functions as it was designed to. 30 years ago as a child coming to the South Florida Science Center. So much so that when I got out of the military, the first thing I did was come here for a visit, she says. Now Im running the place! In other words, the tables have turned; it is now Mrs. Arrizzas passion for the work and her can-do attitude that are having an impact on the science center. Ive always been the girl who takes charge, she says. Ive always been that person who grabs the bull by the horns. Kate is really terrific, says Matt Lorentzen, who chairs the centers board of trustees. Were very lucky to have her with us and were really excited that shes taking on this new responsibility as CEO. Lew Crampton will maintain his leadership role as president of the West Palm Beach venue. During the 10 years Mrs. Arrizza has been working at the science center, which originally opened in 1959 the facility has undergone some significant changes. As the result of a $6 million capital campaign, the South Florida Science Museum was transformed into the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium in 2013. The addition of a new wing effectively doubled the size of the facility, providing space for a 10,000-gallon aquarium, an interactive sphere 6 feet in diameter and much, much more. The original facilities also were completely refurbished. I think it really showed the community that were not just a place where a mom takes her toddlers anymore. We are a place for ages 2 to 92, Mrs. Arrizza says. We truly have something for everyone here. The science center encourages the 21-and-over crowd to drink up get smart during its free series of Science on Tap events. Held at pubs and restaurants around the county, these casual gatherings feature experts sharing their enthusiasm and knowledge on a range of trending topics. The Discovery Center and Early Childhood Playground is a dedicated area for children 6 and under. Silver Science Days is for guests 60 and over. And this fall, life-size, animatronic dinosaurs will be stalking visitors which should make everyone happy. Being a nerd is coming back into style! Mrs. Arrizza says. Remembering a time in the past when being a nerd might have been in style is a challenge, but Mrs. Arrizza isnt going to let that rain on her parade. When she talks about the programming and exhibits under her care, you can catch a glimpse of the girl who loved visiting the science museum all those years ago. That little girl has grown up, as little girls do but so has the science museum she loved. You could even say that the programming has matured. Nerd Nights, another 21-and-over event, are perfect for those with a fondness for pocket protectors and Star Trek retrospectives. Nerd trivia and costume contests as well as beer and wine are among the highlights. Exhibits like Our Body: The Universe Within, which Mrs. Arrizza says broke all attendance records during a run that ended last year, also appeal to adults. Dont worry, though, theres still an abundance of family-friendly activities, ranging from an interactive display on nanotechnology to a round of miniature golf on the Conservation Course. Kids can learn to code or build robots. GEMS the Girls Excelling in Math and Science club helps girls in grades three through eight sparkle. I love it that something new is happening every day here. Were constantly changing our exhibits, constantly changing our programming, says Mrs. Arrizza, who lives in Palm Beach Gardens with her husband and two children. Dissecting a frog might have been the highlight of a trip to the science center five years ago. Today, you can meet a moray eel, try your hand at 3-D printing or learn how to create an app. Throughout the year, a steady stream of school groups from across the county walk through the doors of the Science Center. Some of those students will be forever changed by the time they leave. Mrs. Arrizza can always spot them. They are the ones whose eyes get big gazing at a moon rock, whose mouths drop open watching a seahorse cavort in the aquarium, those who cant seem to tear themselves away from the plasma display. Next year, the science center plans to open A Journey Through the Human Brain, a $2.4 million, 2,500-square-foot exhibition. Its creating the exhibition in partnership with the Quantum Foundation, Max Planck Institute for Neuroscience, Scripps Research Institute of Florida, the Stiles-Nicholson Foundation and Palm Healthcare Foundation. Every year, the education department welcomes more than 125,000 students to the world of science. According to the Association of Science and Technology Centers, that means the South Florida Science Center serves the fifth largest number of students in the country in terms of outreach visits. And thats something larger institutions in New York, Boston and Chicago cant say. Kate is a leader among the team that has grown that program. In the last five years, its probably tripled in size in terms of the number of kids we work with, Mr. Lorentzen says. Were a relatively small science center but I think we punch well above our weight in terms of what were able to provide for our community. Mrs. Arrizza is proud of her role in the growth of the Science Center and its programming. Shes also extremely proud of the people who work with her there and has made staff development and training a priority. We are successful because of the staff, she says. Theyre so dedicated and theyre so smart. They know how to work with people. The job is demanding and often requires long hours many of them spread over weekends and evenings. But, Mr. Lorentzen notes, We have very, very little turnover. I would give [Kate] a lot of the credit for that. Shes a great team manager. I think that probably comes somewhat from her naval background. For me, the most exciting part is being able to impact lives the way mine was impacted. Its a thrill, she says. I love the fact that as the world around us changes, we are able to change and evolve. But, as fascinating as scientific breakthroughs can be, they arent what makes her heart beat faster. Being able to work at a place that you know for a fact changes lives, that is huge, she says. Thats what I love the most.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6, 2018 NEWS A7 Acupuncture for PTSDQuestion: Can Acupuncture treat PTSD symptoms? Answer: Absolutely! Acupuncture has been shown to be effective in the treatment of PTSD symptoms for many years. PTSD is prevalent among military personnel, law enforcement and fire fighters, but can affect the everyday person that has experienced an event or events that they are unable to fully process so the result is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Patients present with a variety of symptoms, including anxiety, insomnia, irritability, feelings of hopelessness and flashbacks. I have to work to unravel the layers of emotional and physical response to the trauma to get to the root cause and begin healing. I primarily focus on using Auricular Acupuncture treatment, or ear acupuncture, for PTSD. This protocol has been shown to be effective for many years. Stimulating points on the ear alleviates and manages the symptoms associated with PTSD. Various natural therapies have been used for treatment but, a study published by the University of New Mexico showed acupuncture to be the most effective. For patients who have a fear or aversion to needles, I also offer electro-stimulation of points, or ear seeds, for a similar result. If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, please consider Acupuncture as key element in treatment along with consulting their MD.ADVERTISEMENT ACUPUNCTURE HEALTH AND HEALINGWendy Miller, Acupuncture Physical Diplomate of Oriental Medicine AcuWellness Group Acupuncture for Health and Healing Address: Downto wn Abacoa 1209 Main Street, #104, Jupiter, FL 33458 Phone: 561-557-6556 Website: acuwellnessgroup.com Email: email@example.comAcuWellness Team: Christy Bongiovanni: Acupuncture Physician, Diplomate of Oriental Medicine, Holistic Health Coach Ask the Health & Beauty Experts An End to Pain with Laser TherapyQuestion: How can laser therapy help with the pain I am suffering from spinal stenosis? Answer: Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of the spine due to bone, disc and ligament degenerative changes. A patient exhibits the inability to stand or walk for periods of time and/or distance (neurogenic claudication). Traditionally, spinal stenosis is treated with epidural steroid injections (temporary results) and spinal surgery (high failure rate). Superposed Robotic laser therapy treatments can provide long term results. It has a beneficial effect on nerves. It blocks pain and decreases nerve sensitivity. Laser therapy also aids in reducing inflammation, decreasing edema and pain reduction. Super Pulsed Laser treatments can effectively remove leg and nerve pain while increasing the patients ability to stand and walk better and further. The Super Pulsed Laser treatments are free of side effects and there is no heat or discomfort whatsoever in receiving the treatments. Results can be achieved when all other treatments including surgery have failed.ADVERTISEMENT MIRACULOUS EFFECTS OF LASER THERAPY FOR PAINJoseph A.

At Jupiter Medical Center, we believe that in order to successfully treat your orthopedic condition, we must focus on your total wellbeing and not just your injury. We take a holistic approach to your treatment, offering a seamless continuum of care, from the first diagnostic appointment all the way through rehabilitation and recovery. The Anderson Family Orthopedic and Spine Center at Jupiter Medical Center offers a broad spectrum of care that is guided by the expertise of our world-class orthopedic surgeons, assisted by leading-edge technology, housed in a state-of-the-art facility and managed by a dedicated orthopedic patient navigator. Our holistic approach starts with our prehab program, which includes education, physical therapy and case management services that are provided based on each patients individual needs and overall health. We offer a Perioperative Surgical Home Program, which begins with patients being evaluated by an orthopedic nurse practitioner a few weeks prior to surgery. This enables us to optimize their condition before surgery and determine what preoperative support (if any) is needed. Preoperative support could include assistance with weight and/or diabetes management, as well as smoking cessation classes and more. Our preoperative education classes prepare patients and caregivers for surgery and recuperation and provide an opportunity for our team to address their questions and concerns. In addition, some patients receive physical therapy prior to surgery to better prepare them for rehabilitation and healing. After surgery, patients are up and about very quickly, with most elective surgery patients being discharged within one to two days. Following surgery, patients and their caregivers also have the option of attending a lunch and learn session while still at the hospital to prepare them for the transition home. Our inpatient rehab program prepares patients for life after surgery. Once at home, we coordinate their care with home health services as needed, and our outpatient facilities help patients continue to build their strength and gain mobility. Finally, we seek to bridge the gap between therapy and wellness by encouraging patients to join our Cary Grossman Health and Wellness Center at a significant medical fitness membership discount. Patients are drawn to Jupiter Medical Center, not only for our approach to care, but for the much-deserved reputation of our physicians.

Thats because this disorder only occurs during sleep. Sleep apnea is when you have pauses in breathing while youre asleep. These pauses can last from seconds to minutes. You may have difficulty breathing a few times or dozens of times an hour. These breathing pauses can be dangerous if they cause the oxygen level in your body to drop or disturb your sleep. When oxygen drops, your brain does whatever it can to get you to resume breathing. And then you may snore, gasp, snort loudly or make a choking sound. A family member or bed partner might be the first to notice these disruptions in your sleep. Sleep apnea is a common disorder. Anyone can develop it. Sleep apnea can occur in both genders, in all races and ethnicities, and in people of all sizes and shapes, says Dr. Michael Twery, a sleep expert at National Institutes of Health. The most common type of sleep apnea is called obstructive sleep apnea. Any air that squeezes past a blocked airway can cause loud snoring. When youre awake, the muscles in your throat help keep your airway stiff and open. In adults, the throat muscles and tongue can relax during sleep, or fat tissue in the neck can narrow your airway to cause an obstruction. In children, the airway may become blocked if their tonsils are so large they obstruct the airway opening. The other type of sleep apnea is central sleep apnea. In central sleep apnea, the brain doesnt send the correct signals to your breathing muscles, so you stop breathing for brief periods. So how can you tell whether you may have this disorder? One of the most common symptoms is excessive daytime sleepiness. Anyone who feels so tired on a regular basis that this is a drag on their daytime function that even if they allow enough time to get enough sleep on a regular basis and they still feel this way then they need to discuss it with their doctor, Dr. Twery says. Another common symptom is loud, frequent snoring. But not everyone who snores has sleep apnea. Other symptoms of sleep apnea may include feeling irritable or depressed or having mood swings. You may have memory problems or trouble concentrating. Or you may wake up with a headache or a dry mouth.Your doctor can diagnose sleep apnea based on your symptoms, a physical exam, and a sleep study. For a sleep study, your doctor may send you to a sleep lab or provide a portable sleep monitor. Sleep studies record signs such as heart rate and oxygen level while you sleep.A sleep study can show whether apnea is mild or severe. People who are so sleepy that theyre at risk of a dr owsy dri ving accident are probably in the moderate to severe range. Doctors may prescribe breathing devices that pump air, or mouthpieces that adjust the lower jaw or hold the tongue. Other treatments are available and may be considered with advice from a physician familiar with your health. If you feel extremely sleepy during the daytime or your bed partner says that you stop breathing when youre asleep, go talk with your doctor.
A8 NEWS WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYtargets, each spaced several feet apart, some closer or farther and none more than 30 yards from me, and hit all of them repeatedly. Roughly five seconds after that, I could have a second magazine, this one with 35 rounds in a 40-round capacity to ease pressure on the spring, locked into my weapon with a round loaded, ready to fire. Almost anyone could. Its part of why these are popular with recreational shooters you can shoot with great accuracy at 25 to 50 yards, said Peter Lucier, a combat veteran of the Marine Corps and a Marine Corps Combat Marksmanship Coach who has written about AR-15s in the The Washington Post and The Daily Beast, among other publications. AR is an acronym for the ArmaLite Rifle first developed in 1956, and sold to Colt three years later. The term AR-15 is now used generically to describe a broad family of military-style, gas-operated, semiautomatic rifles marketed by domestic and international gun makers. Most indoor ranges are 25 yards. A lot of people can look really good (shooting there). When I trained with these, we shot at 500 yards, 20 times the distance. But Id be surprised if the engagements in schools, for example, are happening at more than 25 yards. Not even that. Given the now-significant role AR-15 rifles play in American culture, Florida Weekly decided to take a look at the weapon not as the political icon it has become, but as an object most Americans have heard described, many Americans own or use in sport, and that some Americans in civilian life have been killed or injured by. With my fellow reporter and son, Evan Williams, I bought one of the many versions now offered by American and other gunmakers, the popular Smith & Wesson M&P-15 (M&P is an acronym for Military & Police, for whom Smith & Wesson designed it originally), at a gun store called Shoot Straight, in Fort Myers. The company operates stores in eight Florida locations, including Orlando, West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Clearwater, Tampa, Lakeland and Sarasota. With the purchase we included two extra magazines, one 30-round mag and one 40-round mag for $15 and $20, respectively; a cleaning kit for less than $15; and 120 rounds of 5.56 mm ammunition, the military version of the .223 caliber round, at about $15 for each 30-round box. The rifle itself was on sale for less than $600. Total cost: $702. To buy the weapon, I gave one of the clerks my drivers license, filled out a brief form that asked if I was a felon, wanted by law enforcement, or an American, and waited three days. Then I went back and picked up the gun and accessories. Once, I could put rounds with such a weapon through a dinner plate-sized target 500 yards away, 300 yards away or 200 yards away from various shooting positions about 10 times out of 10 on a clear day with no wind. I wasnt being shot at, I wasnt tired, I wasnt hunting and I certainly wasnt in a public school, a church, a business, a theater or at a concert. I was on a military shooting range. But that is not how the weapon has become prominently known in American culture. Running the numbersDONT CALL AR-15S ASSAULT WEAPONS, A political term used to vilify the rifle and other semiautomatic weapons, says the NRA and the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Instead, the gun industry calls them modern sporting rifles.

It was simple to operate, but complex in engineering and design. Colt bought the design for $75,000 and a future share of profits, in 1959. By the mid-1960s, the U.S. military had adopted it for use in Vietnam.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6, 2018 NEWS A9assaulting people. Owners buy them as collectors items or for self-defense, hunting, target practice and shooting competitions. Gun enthusiasts attest to their ease of use, military and historical pedigree, and especially their almost Lego-like modularity they can be tricked out with an array of scopes, lights and grips, and reconfigured to shoot many types of ammunition in quantities generally ranging from 10 to 100 bullets. The rounds used in an AR-15 style gun include most commonly the .223, but it can be built to fire a .22, .308, 6.8 SPC, and .450 Bushmaster, among others. There are even shotgun versions, the NSSF says. The industry association calls AR-15s among the most popular firearms being sold. It is not known how many Americans own AR-15s and other semiautomatic rifles because there are no public records that track that information. Firearm industry estimates vary from 8 million to 15 million. Guns have been a booming business in the U.S. for more than a decade, the most recent ATF figures show. U.S. manufacturers made 3.2 million firearms in 2005. In 2015, they made 9.4 million; 3.7 million alone were rifles. In all, from 2005 to 2015, 70.8 million guns were made; 26.8 million were rifles. The number of NICS firearm background checks used to determine eligible gun buyers (though it does not show how many ended up purchasing a gun) also more than doubled from 11.2 million in 2007 to 25.2 million in 2017. AR-15s have repeatedly proven themselves devastating assault weapons in mass shootings, but they are used relatively rarely in homicides. The most recent FBI data shows that handguns were used in 7,105 homicides in 2016 while rifles were used in 258. Amy Hunter, a spokesperson for the NRA Institute for Legislative Action in Fairfax, Va., said the term assault weapon is misleading. A lot of media are very uneducated about what these firearms (AR-15s) actually are, how they function, what role they play and what theyre used for, she said. Theyve demonized these firearms, which are functionally just rifles that have added cosmetic components. Hannah Shearer, a staff attorney at San Francisco, Calif.-based Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, which advocates banning assault weapons, pointed out that the core pieces of the AR-15 are the same as an M-16. Overall, these are semiautomatic long guns that are modeled after military weapons and theyre more deadly than other types of weapons, she said. And when theyre used in mass shootings it results in more people being shot, and more people being killed. Mr. Lucier, recalling his extensive experience as a Marine with M-16s and M-4s, offered roughly the same opinion. Asked by Florida Weekly to name any significant differences between a weapon such as the Smith & Wesson M&P-15, one of many versions of the weapon on the market, and the rifles he used in the Marine Corps, he didnt. Theyre not significantly different, he said. These are the same weapons. The selector switch, and having the option (on military rifles) to shoot full auto is not a significant distinction. We dont shoot on full auto. If we have to go full auto we use heavier machine guns usually operated by a team of two or three. So its a distinction without a difference. That distinction is immediately noticeable in civilian versions of the military M-16 or newer M-4. The selector switch manipulated instantly with the thumb of the shooter offers two options only: safe and semi. There is no auto. Unless altered, therefore, it is a semiautomatic rifle, able to fire one round with each pull of the trigger. The military counterparts can fire either continuously on auto with a single compression of the trigger in which case barrels can overheat, ammunition will rapidly deplete and accuracy will become nominal or commonly in three-round bursts. How they workTHE SEMIAUTOMATIC AR-15 is built for the small-caliber, high-velocity concept, Mr. Lucier said. When youre shooting at people, you want to put a lot of shots, generally accurate, in the area of the people, so you can then close with them and kill them. Thats easier to do with a lightweight, smaller-caliber weapon using high velocity rounds. The M-14 (used early in the Vietnam War) shot the equivalent of a .308 Winchester it was a 7.62 mm round. The .223 or 5.56 used by the military now is much more manageable. I can carry a lot more rounds with the .223, with a loaded 30-round magazine that weighs about a pound and a half. A 20-round mag with a .308 will weigh more than twice that. It can be a big factor in war. Or in mass shootings. I can easily carry 30, 60, 90, 120 rounds on my person, which ups the death counts in these mass shootings. And because that recoil is much more manageable, I can continue firing accurately, especially at closer ranges. With the M-14 or say the .30-30 Winchester a lot of people use to hunt deer, theres a lot of recoil, and its harder to shoot fast. ArmaLite, the company that originally made these weapons 60 years ago in California, designed them for soldiers using a patented gas-operating system from engineer and inventor Eugene Stoner, still in use today. The shooter loads the first round into the chamber by pulling back the charger handle and releasing it. In a process almost instantaneous, gas from every fired round is blown back through a tube, slapping the bolt carrier group backward to bounce off a buffer. The now-spent casing is ejected while the bolt carrier group snaps forward, loading the next round. Some historyTHE U.S. MILITARY ACQUIRED THE DESIGN in the early 1960s, called it the M-16, and deployed it in Vietnam, where it replaced the M-14 as a standard-issue rifle. The weapons are lightweight and have little recoil, characteristics that make them popular and enhance their accuracy and ease of use by soldiers and civilians alike. In 1959 Colt bought the rights to the AR-15 design. During the next decade the company advertised a new AR-15 Sporter for hunters, campers and collectors. The weapon wasnt particularly popular, however, until 1989, when a shooter killed five children and wounded 32 others in an elementary school in Stockton, Calif., with an AK-47 the gas-operated assault rifle once used against Americans by North Vietnamese and Viet Cong. Following a robust advertising campaign by marketers, sales shot up. Starting in 1994, new federal rules signed by President Bill Clinton made selling assault weapons including the AR-15, illegal. Such weapons were defined as semiautomatic with detachable magazines and any two of five characteristics: telescoping or folding stocks, pistol grips, bayonet mounts, flash suppressors or grenade launchers. But one decade later, in 2004 during the administration of President George W. Bush, the ban expired and Congress chose not to renew it. Demand for the gun surged with advertising, and most gun manufacturers developed their own versions of the AR-15. Since then, seven states California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York, along with the District of Columbia have passed laws banning assault weapons, the Giffords Center says. Those weapons are now defined in part by generic features that make them easier to fire, and by their ability to hold highcapacity magazines. The seven states, with Colorado, have also enacted bans on high-capacity magazines. Some states define highcapacity as holding more than 10 rounds; others as more than 15. Improvements and aficionadosAS THE MILITARY IMPROVED DESIGN ELEments of its guns over the years, some made their way into the civilian market. For instance, customers have a choice between AR-15s that utilize Mr. Stoners original operating system or a gas piston system used in AK-47s and designed to be more reliable in some conditions such as the dusty Middle East, said Matt Mink, manager at Naples Guns & Ammo. Mr. Mink says the AR-15s popularity comes in part from its patriotic roots defending our country and in part because it simply looks cool. But the reason its so great is its light, its reliable, the recoil is moderate and you can build it up any way you want, he said.

He bought his first AR-15 for home defense, and finds it to be a great rush to shoot for casual target practice. I like the AR because as fast as you press that trigger the bullets will come out, he said. You could literally, if you shoot on a tree, you could knock the tree down. I just like the firepower that it has. Mostly, though, he has a passion for collecting all kinds of things, a habit he has extended to baseball cards, stamps and coins. Hailing from Boston, Mr. Dias didnt get into guns until after he moved to Florida in the mid-1980s and friends introduced him to the hobby. He funds his collections through a successful disaster cleanup and restoration business anything from water damage to crime scenes. Noting that his business is recession proof, Mr. Dias said hes not much interested in politics and doesnt follow the debate about gun control. He enjoys buying or upgrading his AR-15s with all the bells and whistles. One has a grenade launcher attached, another a high-powered sniper scope that would allow him to take long-range shots accurately. But he doesnt use his guns for hunting. I dont think I could shoot an animal, Mr. Dias said, unless it was attacking him. I just couldnt shoot something thats just standing there. Punta Gorda resident Matt Uebelacker Jr., 34, is a gun collector and certified NRA instructor. Many guns in the civilian marketplace are high-powered, semiautomatic rifles that allow people to shoot bullets relatively quickly, he points out, not just ARs. There are other firearms out there that have similar characteristics as an AR-15 but they dont get talked about as much because theyre not as flashy, he said. But the AR-15 platform has a style and versatility that is appealing to many gun owners. He is adept at assembling AR-15s in their many configurations depending on personal preference and use. Do you want to shoot up close? Mr. Uebelacker asks. Do you want to shoot longer distances? Are you trying to shoot with a scope or iron sites? It kind of comes down to, what do you want to do for fun? Or is there a purpose? such as home defense. Mr. Uebelacker enjoys shooting many types of guns, including ARs. I enjoy the history behind them, he said. I like what theyre about, and its our right to defend ourselves as Americans if need be, but thats not the only reason to have firearms. Mark Oliva, a spokesperson for NSSF who lives in Virginia, has an AR-15 configured for hunting. Mr. Oliva scheduled an interview with Florida Weekly for Friday, May 18. But that morning he declined, per NSSFs policy, as news unfolded of a mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas, where the murderer used a Remington 870 pump shotgun and a .38 pistol, according to news reports. Out of respect for the families were going to decline to make any comments regarding firearms, Mr. Oliva said. Law enforcement officials have also proved laconic in discussing these weapons. Florida Weekly contacted sheriffs offices in Palm Beach, Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties, and asked the Florida Sheriffs Association for comments: How many AR-15 style weapons have they confiscated in the last two years? Does the existence of such weapons among civilians create extra work in training, or anxiety, for law enforcement personnel? Only the Lee County Sheriffs Office responded. From January 2015 thru present, we as an agency have had 4,420 guns pass through evidence, wrote Sgt. Anita Iriarte. This includes all firearms. Unfortunately we are unable to distinguish the make and model of the firearms. On the receiving end WRITING IN THE ATLANTIC MONTHLY IN February, Dr. Heather Sher, a radiologist who treated victims of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, compared injuries from the gunmans AR-15, firing .223 rounds with a muzzle velocity of about 3,200 feet per second, with wounds from handguns firing 9mm rounds at about 1,200 fps. Bullets fired from a high-velocity rifle such as an AR-15 travel at almost three times the speed of a typical 9mm bullet, she pointed out. As a result, they cause far more damage to victims, especially when paired with a high-capacity magazine. The 9mm bullet leaves a track through the body about the size of the bullet, she explained. A faster bullet does not cause it to pass through the body more cleanly, but just the opposite; the bullet damages the tissue around it, parting it like waves of water displaced by (a) boat. This process is called cavitation; it leaves the displaced tissue damaged or killed. The high-velocity bullet causes a swath of tissue damage that extends several inches from its path. It does not have to actually hit an artery to damage it and cause catastrophic bleeding. Exit wounds can be the size of an orange. She compared the Parkland shooting to a shooting at the Fort Lauderdale airport in 2017, whose victims she also diagnosed. At the airport, the shooter used a 9mm semiautomatic handgun. The gunshot wounds were the same low-velocity handgun injuries that I diagnose every day; only their rapid succession set them apart, she wrote. And all six of the victims who arrived at the hospital that day survived. At Parkland, she wrote, Most of the victims died on the spot; they had no fighting chance at life. Another Southeast Florida trauma surgeon and Iraq War veteran, Dr. Robert Borrego, called Dr. Shers assessment of AR-15 and high-velocity gun injuries in The Atlantic Monthly really accurate. What happens is they impart so much energy when they go through the tissues that you get a blast effect and a pressure wave, he said. Handgun wounds are the most common type of firearms injury treated at St. Marys Medical Center in West Palm Beach, where Dr. Borrego is medical director of the trauma program. He estimates that he has seen over the past 10 years at St. Marys at least 25 to 50 victims with gunshot wounds that have been consistent with a highvelocity weapon. None were from mass shootings. The percentage of patients that will die or lose a limb in my experience has been higher in patients that have wounds from AR-15-type weapons rather than handgun wounds, he said. So they are riskier and more lethal. They cause more damage and the outc ome is not as good. In Iraq, he served with an Army Reserve surgical team during the first six months of the war in 2003, and witnessed injuries to civilians and soldiers, including those who had been shot by M-16 rifles. The M-16 is built to shoot more rounds in a short period of time, (but) the M-16 wounds are pretty much the same as the AR-15 wounds. Except there may be more, in a military scenario. With a typical handgun injury, Dr. Borrego said that damaged organs such as the liver might often be saved with surgery, while that is not usually the case with a high-velocity rifle wound. With an AR-15 the blast effect is so damaging that (if) the liver gets pulverized, most of those patients dont do well, he said. The same thing for any solid organs in the abdomen. Like if it hits a kidney or a spleen with a highvelocity rifle the organ gets pulverized and theres not much to save.

BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COMMOVING ON UP The first chairwoman of the Downtown West Palm Beach Arts and Entertainment District is an artist herself. Meet Gisele Weisman, a painter, sculptor, author and volunteer. Her aim is to expand the boundaries of the A&E District to include additional facilities outside of the 25 that are currently involved. The district is a centralized collection of inspiring arts and entertainment venues art and history museums, galleries, libraries, performing arts companies and art education institutions. Cultural partners include Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts, Addictive Arts House Street Art Gallery, AMP Music Lab, Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens, Armory Art Center, Bruce Helander Studio, Cultural Lab, Flagler Museum, Habatat Galleries, Historical Society of Palm Beach County, Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach, Multilingual Language and Cultural Society, Norton Museum of Art, Palm Beach Atlantic University, Palm Beach Dramaworks, Palm Beach Opera, Palm Beach Pops, Palm Beach Symphony, Palm Beach Photographic Centre, Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, Scott Fine Art, SunFest, Society of the Four Arts, Thunderlandia and Uptown Art. Established in 2015, the A&E district last year became a 501(c)3 establishment, allowing it to be funded in a different way, Ms. Weisman said. Her goal is to build a world-class program to advance the arts, culture and entertainment offerings to the residents and visitors of Palm Beach. Plans include the creation of a centralized events calendar a go-to list for all of the arts and entertainment happenings downtown, as well as an expansion to the boundaries of the District, which currently consists of 25 venues within a mile of the West Palm Beach Downtown Development Authority office. It would be wonderful to become a world-class A&E district, Ms. Weisman said. The idea is to amplify the appeal, raise spirits, make the heart sing and offer a bunch of additives. Im not sure how its going to manifest itself. Ms. Weisman and her board are reaching out to stakeholders to create opportunities for them to talk to one another. We want to very much include the thoughts of our young people, she said. Well talk about how we can enhance our district and make it a more exciting place for them. Those who are interested in serving on one of the boards for the A&E District Committees may send Ms. Weisman an email (giseleweisman@mail. com) stating choice of committee and qualifications. She will pass them along to the appropriate committee chairman. Committees include development, events, marketing, public relations and communications, stakeholders advisory, and youth and education outreach. Ms. Weismans award-winning works of art have been showcased in solo exhibitions at the Society of the Four Arts, and at the Pierce-Archers Fine Art Gallery. She was one of nine artists chosen to paint a cat (she created CleoCatra) for the Worth Ave. Catwalk and live auction to benefit the Palm Beach Island Cats Society. For more about the Arts & Entertainment District, visit www.Downtown WPBArts.com. Gisele Weisman, Ph.D. Where I grew up: Germany, Israel, France, and Lincoln, Nebraska Where I live now: West Palm Beach on Flagler Drive (overlooking Palm Beach) Education: Ph.D. and M.Ed. in counseling psychology What brought me to Florida: The desire to live in a community that offered waterfront living in a warm climate; with walkability to the arts, entertainment, and restaurants. My first job and what it taught me: Golds Department Store teen fashion columnist. I learned the importance of working collaboratively with others; and that fashion choices can help create who we want to be. A career highlight: Envoy Team Trainer for the 1996 Olympic Games Hobbies: Hiking, yoga, dining, theater, bridge, movies, traveling with a purpose. The spark or seminal moment that made me decide on my field: When a friend invited me to attend a Gestalt workshop, it turned my life around in that I discovered the power of selfawareness an experience that piqued my interest in psychology and launched my career in the field of psychology. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: Understanding that less can be more in psychology saying less and listening more is an art to be perfected; and as an artist fewer and more confident brush strokes can result in looser paintings that are not overworked. About mentors: My parents were my mentors. They taught me the importance of hope, tenacity, kindness, and that anything is possibleeven when it seems impossible. The idea is to amplify the appeal, raise spirits, make the heart sing.

WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6, 2018 | A13 MONEY & INVESTINGThe AutoZone lesson: Look to the future when investingWouldnt it be great to own a crystal ball that could tell you what a companys earnings will be before they were announced? With such a device, you could see if the reported income was above or below the consensus estimate and then go long or short the stock, guaranteeing a profit. Or so it would seem. Wizards of the world who used their predictive device for AutoZone stock recently would have seen that the company handily beat its forecast earnings of $12.94 per share by $48 cents per share and bought the stock in anticipation of a steep rise in price. Instead, the stock tanked by almost 10 percent. So why did AutoZone fall and what can we learn about investing from this move? AutoZone is the largest seller of retail auto parts in the U.S. with over 6,000 stores across the globe. The first AutoZone opened in 1979 under the name Auto Shack but quickly had to change its name after the Tandy Corp. accused it of infringing on its Radio Shack trademark. The company went public in 1991 at $27.50 per share. By 2015, the companys stock approached $800 per share as the company expanded into 49 states as well as Mexico and Brazil. This most recent quarter for AutoZone was expected to be another very profitable one for the retailer with both revenue and earnings growing from the previous quarter. And earnings did not disappoint. A blowout quarter surpassed almost all analyst expectations. And while revenue did come in higher than the same quarter in 2017 by $40 million, it was a little less than some analysts had hoped. Yet investors were still excited by the great earnings and the stock opened the day up 7 percent. Soon after, during the earnings call discussing the quarters results, analysts realized that maybe things werent as rosy as the earnings number reflected. The companys CEO announced that he expects selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses to rise around 7 percent in the next year, mainly due to rising labor expenses. This is a very large increase in the context of a traditional retail store where margins are relatively thin. And with increased competition from online stores, Walmart and Amazon, many analysts believe that AutoZone will not be able to pass along these increased costs to consumers via higher prices. The lower-than-expected revenue and unexpected higher future labor costs painted this earnings release in a very negative light to analysts. The company tried to blame the low revenue on the weather saying, Unfortunately, we had a very cold, wet spring through March and much of April and our sales didnt respond until spring-like weather arrived in late April. Investors werent buying it and the stock dropped like a rock. The AutoZone earnings report does highlight a couple of lessons for investors in general. First, the future is always more important than the past or even the present when it comes to stock price moves. Beating an earnings consensus for the latest quarter is great, but future guidance on what is to occur usually has a much bigger impact on a stock movement. This was true for AutoZone. It had an amazing quarter, but the stock price still fell because of what the CEO said about future quarters. And second, knowledge about an industry is critical when analyzing a company. A 7 percent increase in labor costs for a growing tech company is not a big deal at all. But for a low-growth traditional retail company, it is critical. Thats why analysts focused on this part of the earnings call so closely and why it had such a sizeable move to the downside. And why I am staying far away from the stock as well. ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com

A16 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELJeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk the quickest SUV on the planetEither you love this, or you hate this. Theres no room for compromise when stuffing 707 horsepower into the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. The exterior is similar to the Hemipowered SRT8 one rung below this supercharged SUV on the power ladder. It makes sense that the Trackhawk would share its siblings appearance. With a bulldog-like front end, deep intake ports in the hood, and all the trim blacked out from the headlight surrounds to the 20-inch wheels, it would be hard to improve the mean-factor any more on this package.Inside is a pure upper-class experience that should also be familiar to anyone who has spent time in a premium Chrysler product. The special Trackhawkembossed leather seats have the same deep bolster design as on other SRT (Street and Racing Technology) cars. Everything from a touchscreen infotainment system to heated and cooled seats are standard, so no one complains up front. In the rear, plenty of room for three keeps grievances to a minimum. The center console houses the most unique and interesting part of the car. Where most Jeep 4x4s have a dial to select the terrain, the Trackhawk has much more. After all, when was the last time anyone has seen an off-road machine that also has a setting for the racetrack? This one even has launch control, readouts to record lap times and how much horsepower is being utilized at any moment. A real-time power readout is probably nice for the racetrack, but the real reason this was likely added is because of how fun it is to watch a Jeep instantly dial up the kind of muscle that surpasses most family sedans. Thats what happens with a 6.2-liter V8 topped with a 2.4-liter supercharger all sitting under the hood. The 707 horsepower this creates makes the Trackhawk the undisputed 0-60 mph king of all the SUVs. It has a magical moment where the throttle gets pegged to the floor, the exhaust lets out a beastly growl, and then life begins to move in fast-forward. Its the SUV that loves hijinks, and yet can still tow up to 7,200 pounds putting it on the higher end of premium sports SUVs. Whats most impressive about the Trackhawk is the ride. The SRT8 felt a little too top heavy for its power. The sticky Pirelli street tires combined with the default bouncy shock setting results in a tipsy highway ride. In the Trackhawk, the Bilstein sports suspension is upgraded to a competition grade. It makes the ride stiffer by default. While thats usually not what people want in a family SUV, its exactly what this specialty Jeep needs to work in harmony with the rest of its performance upgrades. The Hellcat motor lives up to its wild animal name in Dodges rear-wheel drive Challenger and Charger. No tires can keep up with the amount of torque this tries to lay down when the accelerator is pegged from a standstill. This beastly nature is part of the fun. But the Trackhawk is for those who dont feel like supervising an unruly animal. The all-wheel-drive system is great for enhancing grip. Plus, most of us have a survival instinct that doesnt allow high-speed cornering in a tall SUV. Jeep engineers have fought physics and made this worthy of the track, but most sane people wont test these limits. So instead of a hellcat, this is more like an agile mountain lion. In fact, one of the wildest parts of the Trackhawk is the price starting at $86,995. It comes loaded as standard, but there are a few options that executivelevel buyers will want (like the $1,995, 19-speaker stereo system.) Add in a few of these features and the price rises close to six figures. Once thats achieved, BMW, Mercedes and Range Rover all have performance SUVs that can outmatch the Trackhawks luxury. None of these Europeans can come close to matching the horsepower and growl this specialty Jeep brings to the streets. Thus, it makes the corporate parking lot a battle between prestige and sheer brawn. This supercharged SUV is brute force and a well-balanced chassis wrapped in a very American total package. Its definitely a niche market, but then again, no one was ever going to call a 700-plus horsepower SUV a mainstream machine. Love it or hate it, the Trackhawk is its own animal. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com earlSTEWARTearls@estoyota.com561-358-1474 EARL ON CARSEight steps to selecting and buying the right new car for you1. Consumer Reports Subscribe to Consumer Reports, go to the library and read past issues, or check out Consumer Reports online. There are other objective sources of information on cars, but this is the best. They accept no advertising from anybody and their sole goal is rigorously and objectively testing merchandise that consumers buy. You can very quickly find the best make car for the model and style you want to buy. Consumer Reports rates cars by performance, cost of operation, safety, and frequency of repair.2. Test drive the car you have chosen This step requires that you visit a car dealership. Remember that this doesnt have to be the dealership you buy from. You obviously must see, touch, feel, and drive the car that you think you want to buy. A new car is a very personal thing and just because Consumer Reports loved it doesnt mean that you will. Be sure that you test drive the car at all speeds in all road types that you normally drive. Drive it in the city but also on the expressway. 3. Carefully choose the accessories you want There are some accessories that enhance the value of your car and some that dont or may even lower it. You should accessorize a car comparably to its class. If you are buying a lower priced economy car, you should not load it up with leather seats and an expensive sound system. If you do, you wont recoup much of what you spent on these accessories in its resale value. On the other hand, if you are buying a luxury car, dont skimp on items people look for in luxury cars like a navigation system or a moon roof. 4. Carefully choose your cars color This is more important in determining a cars resale value than accessories. If you want to maximize the trade-in value of this car, choose a popular color. White, silver, black and beige are the four most popular colors. Sports cars and convertibles are exceptions and red is often the most popular color. The difference in trade-in value between the right color and the wrong color can be several thousands of dollars. 5. Arrange tour financing Now that you know exactly what kind of a car you are going to buy, you can check with local banks and credit unions to find the best interest rate. Dont commit until you have chosen the dealer you will buy from. Manufacturers sometimes offer very low special rates and dealers can sometimes offer a lower rate than your bank or credit union. 6. Shop your trade-in If you are trading in a car, take it to three dealerships for the same make and ask them how much they will pay you for your car. A Chevy dealer will pay more for a used Chevy and a Toyota dealer will pay more for a used Toyota. If you live near a CarMax store, get a price from them, too. They have a reputation of paying more money for trade-ins than most dealers. Dont commit to the highest bid, but give the dealer you buy from a chance to beat that price.7. Shop for the best price on the Internet Go to the manufacturers website. The addresses are all very intuitive. Ford is www.Ford.com, Honda is www.Honda.com and Toyota is wwwToyota.com. You can type in your zip code and get the Web sites of all your local dealers. Depending on how far you are willing to drive to pick up your new car, request price quotes from as many dealers as you like, but be sure you get at least three quotes. When you have chosen the lowest price, verify that this price is out-the-door with only tax and tag, GOVERNMENT FEES ONLY, added. You can also check with third party sources like www.TrueCar.com. TrueCar is preferred because they prohibit their dealers from adding any dealer fees or dealer installed accessories to the TrueCar price.8. Offer your favorite, or nearest, dealer the right to meet this price If you have been dealing with one dealership for a long time and have had good experiences with their service department, you should give them a chance to meet your lowest internet price. Of course, you can take your new car to them for service even if you dont buy it from them.You will notice that there were no steps listed above that suggested that you look in your local newspapers auto classified section, look at car dealers TV or online ads, or believe their direct mail too good to be true offers. When you fall for this, the dealer is in control. When you follow my eight steps, you are in total control.

Oered at $214,777 TOO NEW FOR PHOTO OPEN HOUSE SUN 6/3 1-3PM PET TALESAltered states BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationPrimrose, a 3-year-old Pyrenean shepherd, has always had a lot of nervous energy to the point that her behavior could be annoying, says owner Deb Rabuck of Allentown, Pa. After Rabuck had Prim spayed last August, the dogs behavior changed, and not for the better. Already aggressive toward unknown dogs and people, she began urine-marking in the house and developed signs of anxiety such as panting and pacing. Prims behavior kept Rabuck from sleeping at night and disturbed her other dogs. I had to separate her from my other two dogs, she says. I was afraid they would kill her. She drives them crazy with all that energy. Rabuck took Prim to veterinary behaviorist Jacqueline Wilhelmy, VMD. After running lab tests to rule out possible health problems, Dr. Wilhelmy prescribed Prozac and gabapentin and offered behavior modification advice. It has been 11 days, and while Prim is still urine-marking, Rabuck is now able to sleep through the night. Pet behavior problems such as separation anxiety; thunderstorm or other noiserelated fears; compulsive disorders such as excessive chewing, licking, tail chasing or other repetitive behaviors; or aggression toward other animals or humans can all respond to many of the same psychoactive medications that help humans. They include fluoxetine (Prozac), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor; gabapentin, an antiseizure medication sometimes used off-label for pain and anxiety; tricyclic antidepressants such as amitriptyline; and benzodiazepines such as Xanax and Valium. Not in every case do we use a medication, but when it is indicated, it can really facilitate the progress of the case quite dramatically, says Patrick Melese, DVM, a veterinary behaviorist in San Diego, Calif. Medications used in humans have the same or similar effects in dogs and cats because the nervous systems of animals and humans operate in a similar manner. The goal is to normalize brain chemistry and improve the way the animal processes information. Shannon Gillespies border collie Fizz has taken Prozac for more than five years because she would explode when frustrated or excited and was unable to calm down quickly. About four years ago, when Fizzs veterinarian prescribed gabapentin for torn bicep and supraspinatus muscles, Gillespie noticed a further positive change in her behavior. Now Fizz takes both medications to help her maintain a calm demeanor. Medications can help decrease the animals overall level of anxiety, aggressive behavior, and reactivity and help with impulse control, says Wailani Sung, DVM, a veterinary behaviorist at San Francisco SPCA Behavior Specialty Service and coauthor of the book From Fearful to Fear Free. They are typically prescribed when the animal has a high level of anxiety, aggressive behavior and reactivity, (and) when the inappropriate behavior occurs daily or multiple times a week or is very intense.It can take several weeks on medication before pets become calm or relaxed enough to start learning new ways of coping or adjust to changes in the household or interactions with family members or other animals. How long medical therapy continues depends on the individual animal and situation. It can range from a few months to a year to a lifetime. Animals may stay on the same dose or have it gradually reduced as the situation improves. Medication by itself wont solve a pets behavior problems. Behavior modification and environmental changes, if needed, are a necessary part of treatment. (The exception, Dr. Melese says, is urine-marking in cats, which typically responds well to medication alone.) A veterinary behaviorist or certified applied animal behaviorist can develop a plan to help the animal respond more appropriately to the circumstances that trigger the behavior. Drugs can help pets with behavior problems, but theyre not a quick fix. Pets of the Week>> King is a 9-yearold, 82-pound male German shepherd that is almost completely blind.

Fans of some of the hottest Broadway musicals in recent memory will have a chance to see seven of them at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts 11th season of Kravis On Broadway, beginning in November. Lee Bell, senior director of programming at the Kravis Center, said the 2018-2019 seasons lineup of Rock of Ages, Hello, Dolly! On Your Feet, Les Miserables, Waitress, School of Rock and Disneys The Lion King is one of the most compelling collection of musicals his team has ever assembled. Eleven years ago, we became an independent presenter of Broadway, Mr. Bell said. We wanted more control over the Broadway product and what we could bring to the table here for our own community. We started out doing five productions, then increased it to six, then to seven last year. Its been a great success for us. BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@ oridaweekly.comAre you ready to rock? Because Respectable Street is! And youre invited to the biggest block party of the summer as Respectable Street celebrates its 31st anniversary with 30 bands, one for each year its been bringing cutting edge entertainment to West Palm Beach. Respectables opened in 1987 in an old Salvation Army building built circa 1923. Since then, the venue has hosted more than a thousand live acts. On Saturday, June 2, the fun begins with an open bar and free pizza from 7 to 8 p.m. Most of the activity will take place in the 500 block of Clematis St. (Respectable Street is at 518 Clematis) as well as several other watering holes Hullabaloo, Voltaire and the Subculture Alley who will lend their space to the party. The headliner is the one and only Peter Hook (formerly of Joy Division and New Order) and his band The Light.

That is the question. Grandma always would have called any footed dish a compote. But we would not have been comporting ourselves accordingly had we corrected her. Thats even though many glassware companies listed small footed dishes as comports. Others listed them as compotes, so how can we argue? After all, a fruit compote is what is served from a footed dish, though perhaps it would be from a larger vessel than this. Homer Laughlin always called the smaller dish in its Fiesta line a sweet meat. I like that, but the term is archaic and folks might well think its a dish containing animal products of some sort, rather than mints or other candies. But the archaic and the arcane are part of the charm of antiques and anything with a history. And thats the case with pieces like the Heisey compote I recently acquired. I love these footed dishes and have them in an array of patterns. But you seldom see new versions of the dainty glass and porcelain pieces. Thats a pity. That uniqueness is part of what makes collecting antiques fascinating never mind that this or that company turned out tens of thousands of an item back in the day. That item is unique today. As for me, I like anything that I cannot buy at Target, Pier One or even Bloomingdales, for that matter. Think how fun a display of these footed dishes would be filled with candies, or Christmas ornaments, candles or whatever the season dictated? Picture them loaded with nuts at tea time one nice object can make a whole table feel special. Maybe youve wondered how someone might use a piece such as this. Now you know.

Cleveland Ave., Fort Myers; 239-703-7151 or www.wildwoodantiquemalls.com. Paid: $15 The Skinny: This Heisey Twist pattern compote is a product of its time look at the angular Art Deco lines that were so popular in the 1920s and s. Heisey made its Twist pattern from 1928 to 1935. This piece, in the companys Moongleam color, stands about 5 inches high and would have stood on a buffet, ever ready to serve mints or nuts. Ive often said Heisey was the Cadillac of American glassware (Steuben would have been the Rolls-Royce). I think that still holds true the glass is always clear and the colors almost always are consistently radiant. THE FIND:A Heisey Twist pattern compoteThis Heisey Twist pattern compote was made in the companys Moongleam color between 1928 and 1935. It stands about 5 inches high.Compote or comport?

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6, 2018 B7 Matthews rescued it and established the Flagler Museum on June 5, 1959. Mrs. Matthews herculean effort has not been in vain. National Geographic Traveler called the museum, An absolute must-see. The museum has captured the flavor and ambience of the Gilded Age for visitors to experience. Take a self-guided tour of the art and furnishings of the opulent residence and take a moment to climb aboard Flaglers private railcar No. 91 in the Flagler Kenan Pavilion. Admission to the Flagler Museum the rest of the year is $18 for adults, $10 for age 13-17 when accompanied by an adult, $3 for age 6-12, and free for children younger than age 6. For more information, call 561-6552833 or visit www.flaglermuseum.us.Summer in Paradise returns You can feel it in the air! Summer in Paradise has returned! Dont believe it? Head downtown where youll find tons of summertime activities. West Palms annual promotion begins June 7 with the revelation of the Fairy Tale Playhouses, the new art installation of 15 child-size dreamhomes produced in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity. The message: Affordable housing shouldnt be a fairy tale. Fifteen local nonprofits worked with local artists to decorate the houses to capture the theme of a particular fairy tale, much like last years Aesops Tables installation. At the end of the campaign, the houses will be auctioned to benefit the charity that produced them. A 16th playhouse designed by Related Companies is in the Magic Garden, a green community space at the southwest corner of Evernia Street and Rosemary Avenue made possible in part by the Downtown Development Authority. The house depicts the beloved tale of Thumbelina and was designed by Frankie Cihi, and its auction will benefit Quantum House. The ample space will be filled with greenery by Palm Beach Farmyards, including lots of local plants with familiar names, but with some edibles as well. One reason for the project is to raise the awareness of how easy organic produce gardens can be, even in an urban environment. For more information, visit www.magicgardenwpb.com The SIP kick-off takes place during Clematis By Night, which for the summer is supersized with an extra hour of live entertainment featuring two rocking bands. On June 7, its a reggae flavored two-fer with Reggae Brew followed by The Resolvers. Heres a summary of the SIP activities offered from June 7 until July 26.

Any size event....anytime! Award-Winning Catering Award-Winning CateringRock of Ages (Nov. 6-11) captures a seminal era that was the big, bad 1980s Hollywood. Featuring the music of hit bands such as Styx, Poison, Twisted Sister, Whitesnake and many others, this production features a new cast revisiting the larger than life characters and exhilarating story that turned Rock of Ages into a global phenomenon. Hello, Dolly! (Dec. 11-16) features Broadway classics Before the Parade Passes By, It Only Takes a Moment, Put on Your Sunday Clothes and, of course, the unforgettable title number. Currently breaking box office records on Broadway, this new production pays tribute to the original staging of director/choreographer Gower Champion hailed both then and now as one of the greatest legends in musical theater history. On Your Feet! (Jan. 8-13, 2019) takes audiences behind the music and inside the real story of record-making couple Emilio and Gloria Estefan who, in the face of adversity, found a way to end up on their feet. This musical features some of the most iconic songs of the past quarter-century and one of the most inspiring stories in music history. Les Miserables (Feb. 12-17, 2019) tells the classic story of broken dreams and unrequited love, pas sion, sacrifice and redemption. Featuring memorable songs I Dreamed A Dream, On My Own, Stars, Bring Him Home, One Day More and many more, this epic story has become one of the most celebrated musicals in theatrical history. Waitress (March 5-10, 2019) recounts the story of Jenna, a waitress and expert pie maker, who dreams of a way out of her small town and loveless marriage. A baking contest in a nearby county and the towns new doctor may offer her a chance at a fresh start, while her fellow waitresses provide their own recipes for happiness. But Jenna must summon the strength and courage to rebuild her own life. School of Rock (March 27-31, 2019) is based on the hit film and follows the exploits of Dewey Finn, a wannabe rock star posing as a substitute teacher, who turns a class of straight-laced students into a high-octane rock band. The musical features 14 new songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber, all the original songs from the movie and musical theaters first-ever kids rock band playing their instruments live on stage. Disneys The Lion King (April 24-May 5, 2019), winner of six Tony Awards including Best Musical, brings to life a story filled with hope and adventure, set against the backdrop of innovative visuals while featuring some of Broadways most recognizable tunes, crafted by Tony Award-winning artists Elton John and Tim Rice. Mr. Bell said this seasons lineup began taking shape with the booking of Disneys The Lion King, which had never played the Kravis Center before. We were very happy to lock that in, he said. And were ecstatic weve got a first-run presentation of Hello, Dolly! with Betty Buckley. On Your Feet!, of course, has a unique significance with South Florida because of the Gloria Estefan connection and were always looking for Tony Award-winning and family-oriented shows, which include Waitress, The Lion King, Les Miz, Hello, Dolly! and Rock of Ages. We never want to have just one type of show. We like to have a nice blend. Mr. Bell added he hopes audiences will come to see Kravis On Broadway, have a great time and tell their friends to come on board as subscribers especially since the 2019-2020 season will include Hamilton, which is sure to sell out early. If theatergoers subscribe this year, theyll be able to get Hamilton tickets the following year, he said. Thats certainly a good reason to get on board soon as 45 to 50 percent of our audience members are subscribers, who get discounted prices on their seats. Subscribers for the Kravis On Broadway series will receive their renewals in early March, Mr. Bell added. Kravis Center donors will receive information on becoming a Kravis On Broadway subscriber for the 2018/2019 series mid-May and series subscriptions starting at $222 and up will go on sale to the general public in June. Single ticket prices will be announced at that time as well. The Kravis Center is at 701 Okeechobee Blvd. in West Palm Beach. For more information about becoming a donor, log on to kravis.org/membership or call 561-651-4320.

That concert rolls into West Palm Beach for a show June 3 at Coral Sky Amphitheatre. But throughout, the flannel-clad singer-songwriter remains that same kid who first got sucked into rock n roll after hearing guitarist Scotty Moore on a jukebox riffing on Elvis Presleys cover of My Baby Left Me. That indefatigable and infectious spirit comes across, whether hes proudly talking about playing alongside son Shane in his touring band or playing the same stage as ZZ Tops Billy Gibbons. My son Shane is an incredible guitar player. Hes a regular part of my band, so we have great fun trading solos. At one point in the show, we do a kind of duel and challenge each other. Its kind of a shootout on Main Street, Mr. Fogerty said with a laugh. Billy (Gibbons) is absolutely one of my favorite guitar players. This tour is going to be a bigger theoretical challenge (than) Vegas because I know Billy Gibbons is going to be in the house, so I know that Ill want to be presenting one or two of my best licks. I normally never say that, but when you know there is some guy out there who can really play and is part of the show and will be on that stage either right ahead of you or right behind you, want to be more mindful of what youre playing. The past few years have been busy for the Berkeley, Calif., native, who has been a constant touring presence and even found time to publish his 2015 New York Times best-selling memoir, Fortunate Son: My Life, My Music. While it chronicles his time as a struggling musician and the eventual success he experienced in leading Creedence Clearwater Revival, it also reflects the decades-long legal battles he had with his old label Fantasy Records and label boss Saul Zaentz, and the rift with his late brother and Creedence Clearwater Revival bandmate, Tom. Despite the pain involved with going back to a point in his life when he even refused to perform any CCR songs in concert as a means of denying royalties to Fantasy, Mr. Fogerty was grateful that he not only got to set the record straight, but share how the love of his wife, Julie, offered him redemption. Now Im very thankful to have been able to speak about my life at some length and to be able to express how I feel. Im humbly thankful that there was this human being that loved me and was able to get me out of the morass and quicksand that I was in, he said of his wife. I just couldnt figure it out. Im sure this happens to people a lot in life I didnt know what to do. I wanted to be out, but I just wasnt very good at getting myself unstuck. She had an awful lot of patience with a guy that was certainly a real piece of work, Mr. Fogerty explained. You read all about it in the book, but I was certainly alcoholic and miserable at times and not a real great protector of my life. She just came in and delightfully helped me appreciate the good things in life. That was my favorite part of the book that I was able to express that to people and make them understand what that happiness meant to me. Mr. Fogertys comeback may have started with his 1985 hit album, Centerfield, but his solo career hasnt lost steam, as he signed a new recording contract with BMG last year. Not only are five of his solo efforts being reissued (Centerfield, Blue Moon Swamp, Eye of the Zombie, Deja Vu [All Over Again], Premonition), but hes working on an album of new material he hopes to have out by years end. Then there is his monumental catalog with Creedence Clearwater Revival. His time with CCR found Mr. Fogerty penning nine Top 10 hit singles and racking up an incredible eight gold albums between 1968 and 1972. Despite how effortless it might have seemed, he shared that it was more a sheer force of will. For me, writing songs was life and death. Its a phrase I used a lot throughout my life to explain how I felt as a fan and also as an artist, he said. I realized that we didnt have all the other things successful bands had, meaning a manager, a big label and a big bankroll behind us. When you are lying in bed alone with your thoughts, its a time when you can be really honest with yourself. That was kind of my challenge we had to be the very best whatever that is. I think it was that obsessiveness that I absolutely couldnt rest because if I stopped flapping my wings, I was going to fall to the Earth and crash and burn. Its a mentality Mr. Fogerty carries with him to this day, even as he grapples with what hes writing for his next solo album. When youre not writing for a while, you remember that youre a musician and you play guitar while youre on vacation with your family somewhere and youre not really working. Then you start working on writing these songs and there is a lot of anxiety about finding good stuff, he said. Its just daunting until, if youre lucky, you come up with something thats good. You dont get there without going through that realization that what youre doing right now is not very good and then forcing yourself to keep working. I go through the same stuff every single time. It just blows my mind that it has to work like that, at least for me.

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MAY 31-JUNE 6, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY COCKTAILS & PARADISE alexKOWTUNalex@monkeyinparadise.com, Instagram: @successful Like many, I feel extremely lucky to live, work, and play in the Sunshine State. Im an adrenaline enthusiast, recreational pilot, race car driver and cofounder of Monkey in Paradise Vodka. I make it my mission to find fun, exciting, and entertaining ways to pursue the good life, especially here in Florida and to share them with as many people as possible. When Florida Weekly asked me to contribute a column, I couldnt resist. Why Cocktails & Paradise? I grew up in Buffalo, went to school for finance, and worked in the investment world. Entertaining, spending time outdoors, and inspiring people to enjoy every moment have always been my passions. Clearly, my career choice did not satisfy these aims. It didnt take much to convince me to move to West Palm Beach. It seemed like paradise, and I was determined to make every day living there feel that way. Part of that plan involved socializing a lot. Friends gathered at my condo and enjoyed a variety of cocktails. We started using monkey-shaped cocktail markers to differentiate each others drinks, even at restaurants and bars when we congregated there. We soon realized that the monkey markers helped break the ice. Instead of staring at their phones or at the floor, the other patrons talked to us and each other about the cute little markers. The monkey marker conversation pieces caught on and quickly became a symbol for hanging out with good friends, making new ones, having fun and getting social. Not surprisingly in this age of social media, hundreds of people began posting pictures of their ice-breaking monkey markers in fun, luxurious or unusual locations. The get social movement was born and in just eight months blossomed into a lifestyle and vodka brand, Monkey in Paradise (MIP). The MIP Vodka, launched just 24 months ago, won the Double Gold Medal at the World Spirits Competition for its smoothness, taste, and quality. The gluten-free vodka is made locally, is currently sold in Florida and Georgia, and is expanding nationally. Each day is a new and exciting adventure working hard for the brand, connecting people to each other, and creating remarkable experiences for everyone involved. Hope youll join me and enjoy the behind-the-scenes looks at the parties and processes, and all of the exciting escapades to follow. Alex Kowtun is co-founder of Monkey in Paradise Vodka.

The Price: $9.50 The Details: Think of this as the Chipotle Grill of Mediterranean fare, with bowls of fresh greens, banana peppers, tomatoes, Kalamata olives and other goodness from along the shore of that sea. My falafel were light, crisp on the outside and tender on the inside, and the greens were cold, crisp and fresh. I could have ordered it on a base of a pita, rice or hummus. On another visit, the chicken shawarma was tasty, with plenty of cumin, curry and garlic.

Jan Norris, firstname.lastname@example.org FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE COURTESY PHOTO The raw bar at PB Catch, in Palm Beach.The big food news is happening in South County this week, with the announcement of a food hall planned for East Delray Beach. Noted restaurateur Dennis Max will pair up with the Menin Development Co. to build a four-story food hall and parking garage, once the city approves its plans. The Delray City Market is planned for the 1-acre site along the railroad tracks at Southeast Third Avenue; a Menin subsidiary paid $4.6 million for the plot last year, with intentions to build a condominium on it. Financially, the condo plan fell apart, according to a Menin spokesperson, and the food hall became its secondary plan. Mr. Max, who worked previously with Menin at Downtown at the Gardens, opening a Maxs Grille, was tapped to develop the food vendors and help design the space for the hall. Being from California, and L.A., I used to go to the farmers market, he said. That eventually evolved into Grand Central Market, one of the major food halls Mr. Max and the Menin planners visited for research. Others included the Chelsea Market in New York, and the Milwaukee Public Market in Wisconsin. He also has visited Grandview Market in West Palm Beach, and admires its plan, but says the Delray City Market will be several times the size, at 120,000 square feet, and with 31 food-centric vendors in a variety of booth sizes spread along the first floor. Tables will be dotted among them, and on an outdoor patio area. Ideally, vendors will offer combinations of fresh food and prepared items for eating on site and take-out, or shopping for a meal, with choices to serve all diets and preferences, he said. One could be picking out a burger, and having it grilled to order, or someone else in the family is going to the produce stands salad bar. Someone else might want sushi. They can get it from separate vendors then come together to sit down and eat in a common space. And youre not spending $50 a person, you maybe spend $20 a person for good food. Bakers, chocolatiers, fish and cheese mongers are among others hes planning to bring in, along with entrepreneur chefs who want to get made-to-order experience before opening their own place. He sees it as an incubator for young, emerging chefs. These are people who have come from food trucks. Theyre used to working small, tight spaces and can produce good food in a counterserve setting. They can come in at 30 or 40 grand and have an opportunity to parlay it into a brick and mortar later. Alcohol will be served at the gourmet wine bar, the full liquor bar, and the craft brewery that will operate on site. An event space with a full kitchen suitable for receptions, as well as chef classes and demos, is planned for the mezzanine level, while floors two through four will be a parking garage. Its going to be interactive and festive, Mr. Max said. Hes confident in the trend that is emerging across the country. Its something Ive wanted to do all my life, and now I have the perfect chance. If plans are approved, the developers plan to break ground in fall 2018, with completion a year after.Taste of Recovery to benefit Crossroads ClubThe second annual Taste of Recovery, a dine-around affair, is June 2 at Old School Square in Delray Beach. The fundraising culinary event focused on recovery is hosted by Louie Bossi executive chef and partner at Louie Bossis Ristorante, Bar & Pizzeria. Mr. Bossi is a recovering addict, and says in his job, he sees the epidemic among his fellow food and hospitality workers. It is the basis of his drive to help by gathering chefs and entertainment for the event that will donate proceeds to the nonprofit Crossroads Club, a meeting place in South County for those in recovery to get support. Hosting this year will be Gary Kimble a noted recovery educator, ambassador for the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence and author of the new book, Walk the Talk with Step 12: Staying Sober through Service. A Best Dish award will be presented after a panel of judges, myself included, sample the foods. Reigning chef is Mark Militello of Josies in Boynton Beach; he will be wearing a judges hat this year. The event is 6-9 p.m. at the Old School Square Pavilion, 51 N. Swinton Ave., Delray Beach. Tickets are $40; visit www.tasteofrecovery.com. Green Cay Farm head retires One of the biggest names and innovators in Palm Beach County farming retired last week. Nancy Roe, head of Green Cay Farm in Boynton Beach and the inspiration for many other farmers as well as a friend to chefs, was honored at a brunch on her farm by several of those who have benefited from her 18-plus years of vegetable and herb farming. She and spouse Charlie Roe began the first CSA subscription for produce farm in the area for the public; the boxes of mixed vegetables delivered weekly were sold out long before the crops were planted and harvested each year. The couple also delivered their fresh produce to a number of top chefs at restaurants and hotels on a weekly basis in season, and would plant specific crops just for them. While not organic, Green Cay Farm also was a research facility for best-practice farming in problematic South Florida. Dr. Roe, a Ph.D, mentored Diane Cordeau and Carl Frost at Kai-Kai Farm in Indiantown. She also helped Darrin and Jodi Swank of Swank Farm on their way to a successful hydroponic farm in Loxahatchee. janNORRISjan@jannorris.com Food hall concept coming to Delray on a grand scaleMAX BOSSI
