Sale shoes only. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com COMMENTARYFree adviceIt has always been my policy to charge exorbitant fees for the consulting work I do. When you gouge the other guy, youve demonstrated the muscular Yankee capacity for greed and trade the nation depends on. But thats only part of what makes America great. The other part is war. This time, therefore, Im offering free advice, both to President Donald Trumps administration, the 45th since George Washington turned down an offer from a couple of his generals to be king and instead became the nations first president; and to you, my fellow and not-so-fellow Americans. War, not just trade, made America great, as our peerless international reach suggests. Unpopular as the idea might seem on the surface, war is good, like a big breakfast. Not just from a strictly economic standpoint, but from a cultural standpoint. For most Americans, this has been a good century for war, so far. Weve been able to wage it for 17 years now (since 2001) without actually fighting it en masse. Less than 1 percent of Americans have served in Iraq or Afghanistan, and the rest of us have served in shopping malls and spas and restaurants and newcar lots and country club golf courses and at the beach. But weve managed to beat the hell out of all kinds of people and insert ourselves physically and firmly into North Africa and the Middle East, where wed never had a secure foothold until now. Yes, Iraq and Afghanistan will ultimately cost between $7 trillion and $9 trillion, estimates suggest, but thats money taxpayers as yet unborn can pay. Why worry about it? Really, not our problem. We should have done something like this 100 years ago. The 20th century, sometimes referred to as the American century, was a little more difficult in war terms than the 21st at least so far requiring a little more American participation. But the American century might have been even more American if wed quit screwing around in 1918, at the end of the First World War, and just marched over the top of everybody else left alive in Europe. By that time, most of the young men from one end of the European continent to the other were dead or wounded. We would now be treating the European nations as territories, the way we treat Puerto Rico or Guam today, if President Woodrow Wilson hadnt gone around like a flower-waver trying to promote a League of Nations. What a joke. And peace. Another joke. You cant be great if you wave flowers. Unrealistic? No. France, for example, lost more than 1.3 million young men, England as many as 770,000, the Russian empire somewhere in the vicinity of 2 million, Austria-Hungary lost more than 1.2 million, Germany itself more than 2 million and the Turks (the Ottoman empire), who fought with the Germans, as many as 771,000. That was killed, not just wounded mostly men between the ages of 17 and 30. The United States lost 116,000 men, about 53,000 killed in battle, in World War I. And we were pumped up. We could have ambled right through western Europe and out the other side, all the way to the Bosphorus Strait that separates Europe and Asia by about a mile at Istanbul, home of the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia. But we didnt take advantage of our strength then because we wanted to come home and complain about Italian immigrants. At that point in time, during the greatest migration in the history of the world to date, 24 million people flooded our shores. A lot of Americans felt the Italians were making us smelly, ugly and goofy, not great. Then we tasted their food, washed it down with a little Chianti, and changed our minds. Hey bro, just kidding, we said, blaming black people instead and tucking into our pastas, our risottos, our prosciuttos, our tiramisus. But we almost blew it; it took World War II, not an easy win, to put us back in the saddle. And once again, we screwed up by giving away the fort. We called it the Marshall Plan, after Gen. George Marshall, who thought of it $13 billion at the time, about $110 billion in todays dollars to pick up our former enemies and help them trade. Trade is great, dont forget, but war is greater. In Marshalls day, two other generals understood what we had power and advocated its use: George S. Patton Jr., in 1945, and Douglas MacArthur a few years later. Patton died before he could really get started with the idea of putting the Russians out of business forever by ramming the Third Army down their throats, but President Harry Truman had to fire MacArthur, who wanted to nuke the Chinese in 1951 during the Korean War, which would have been the equivalent of marching to the eastern lip of Europe, in Turkey, in 1918. And now we have a leader who might actually do this for us he might use the trade war he already started to engage our friends and enemies alike in a third world war, sort of an add-on to our 17 years of parochial pissing-matches over oil and influence. Now would be the time. Otherwise, some historian will be calling the 21st century the Chinese century since they have almost 1.5 billion people, theyve figured out the talent pool includes women (sort of), they have enough food, and they want to be on top. Its now or never, Donald, take it from me the only free advice Ill ever give you. Until next time.

OPINIONDoublespeak double-crossDont you just love doublespeak, which deliberately obscures, disguises, distorts or reverses the meaning of words, according to the dictionary? Its the distorted language of grievance that allows societys oppressors to wallow absurdly in their contrived victimhood. One of my favorites is a phrase used against anybody who dares oppose the nations plutocrats, these obese cats who routinely use a small part of their ill-gotten gains to buy candidates oh, Im sorry, I mean make campaign contributions to elect officials who will return the favors by twisting the laws to protect the prosperous from prosecution for thievery. What happens when an ybody utters even a mild criticism? They all shriek CLASS WARFARE at the top of their lungs. That distortion is effective in a nation that prides itself on its alleged economic opportunity, even though just a cursory look will reveal that is actually just a myth; what we really have is gross financial inequality, with most of the countrys abundance held in the vaults of those at the tippy-top of the heap. In reality, they wage class warfare against everyone else. Thats right up there with playing the race card, the favorite of those who play the race card constantly, holding on to that grand American tradition of white bigotry against people of color. That doesnt stop white bigots from feeling set upon by every effort, no matter how puny, to counter the nations built-in prejudice. Affirmative action becomes reverse discrimination, even though it has had limited success in correcting the severe disparities that still exist. But dont worry, white supremacists, help is on the way: Anthony Kennedy, who spent 30 years as a Supreme Court associate justice, is retiring. Kennedy has been an independent-minded conservative who had reluctantly supported such concepts as affirmative action and gay rights. Without a doubt, President Donald Trumps nominee to replace him will be someone far to the right. Really far to the right. Goodbye, civil rights; goodbye, sexual freedom. At top of the chutzpah hit parade is the complaint by Trump supporters that opponents are forgetting their manners, suddenly lacking in civility. Trump supporters complaining about incivility? Their leader invented that game. His combination of lying, name-calling, bigotry and misogyny has turned every debate about issues into an attack not just on civility, but on civilization. All this hypocrisy has been inspired by the recent experience of administration luminaries who have been trying to eat out. The most famous incident involves Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the Trump press secretary. By now we all are well aware that the owner and staff of a Lexington, Virginia, restaurant were so offended by her role in the Trump administration that they asked her to leave, which set off outrage in Trumpsters everywhere. I have a simple solution: Set up separate dining rooms for Trump supporters and their adversaries. In Mexican restaurants, to avoid food fights, put up a wall. Problem solved. (It will be funded by Mexico, of course.)What is nowhere near being solved is the constant doublespeak, the language of hypocrisy. Over time, the incessant use of such semantic dishonesty has dissolved the trust necessary to make a democracy function. Maybe thats why ours is not functioning so well anymore. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN.Roe is a travestyThe prospect of overturning Roe v. Wade will be at the foreground of the battle over Justice Anthony Kennedys replacement, and it should be. Roe is judicially wrought social legislation pretending to the status of constitutional law. It is more adventurous than Miranda and Griswold, other watchwords of judicial activism from its era. It is as much a highhanded attempt to impose a settlement on a hotly contested political question as the abhorrent Dred Scott decision denying the rights of blacks. It is, in short, a travesty that a constitutionalist Supreme Court should excise from its body of work with all due haste. Roe has been commonly misunderstood since it was handed down in 1973, in part because its supporters have been so determined to obscure its radicalism. It is commonly thought that Roe only prohibits restrictions on abortion in the first trimester, when it effectively forbids them at any time, imposing a pro-abortion regime as sweeping as anywhere in the advanced world. Roe struck down 50 state laws and has made it all but impossible to regulate abortion, except in the narrowest circumstances. More to the point, the argument that its particular set of policy preferences is mandated by the Constitution is flatly preposterous. Over the years, the decisions laughable constitutional inadequacy has been widely recognized. Shortly after it came down, Harvard Law School professor John Hart Ely, a supporter of legalized abortion, wrote that Roe is bad because it is bad constitutional law, or rather because it is not constitutional law and gives almost no sense of an obligation to try to be. The court in Roe purported to find the constitutional right to abortion in the 14th Amendment, which says that no state can deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law. This passage has no obvious or even subtle connection to legalized abortion (in fact, abortion laws were being tightened in the 19th century when the amendment passed). No matter. According to Justice Harry Blackmun, abortion is so central to liberty that no restriction on it can stand constitutional scrutiny. He is at pains to deny that unborn children are persons in the whole sense. As evidence, he points to clauses in the Constitution about persons that dont have pre-natal application, e.g., the requirement that persons must be 35 or older to run for president. This is too stupid for words. Just because clauses like this refer to adults doesnt mean that minors, or unborn children, dont have rights. The best case that can be made for Roe is that it is a mistaken decision on the books for nearly 50 years now, so it has to be honored as a precedent. But the court is not, and shouldnt be, in the practice of standing by fundamentally flawed decisions. Brown v. Board of Education overturned Plessy v. Ferguson, which upheld segregated education, almost 60 years later. Just last week, the Court overturned a labor decision from 1977. Roe is bad law and bad democracy. It has no sound constitutional basis, and deserves to go the way of the courts other embarrassments and misfires.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESWords about friends BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationWhen I was growing up, I was a shy, quiet child, and the phrase I heard most often from my grandmother was Whats the matter? Cat got your tongue? When I began writing this weeks feature on the many ways animals appear in our language it was the first phrase that came to mind. While it seems as if this saying should have a colorful history, its origins are as shy as I was. Its first known appearance in print was in Ballous Monthly Magazine, vol. 53, in 1881, where it was described as a phrase said by children. One other theory, unsupported by quality references, suggests that the saying dates to the Middle Ages, when it was thought that a witchs cat would steal or control the tongue of anyone who saw the witch in action so that she couldnt be reported to the authorities. This time of year is notable for its dog days, known for their scorching heat. The dog days occur in summer when Sirius, the dog star, shines brightly in the sky. Its name derives from the ancient Greek word seirios, meaning sparking, fiery or burning. The star, which rises early in the morning in the path of the sun, was thought to be the cause of hot midsummer days. The dog days begin in mid-to-late July and end on Aug. 11. The Cambridge Dictionary defines a cool cat as a fashionable person. I prefer the American Heritage Dictionarys slang definition of the word cool composure or poise because that so perfectly describes a cats normal state of being. The phrase cool cat entered the language in the 1940s, associated with jazz music. The digital Oxford English Dictionary says slang references to cats as people who appreciate jazz date to 1936, and the use of cool in reference to jazz music appeared in 1947. The mashup cool cat probably occurred soon thereafter. The metaphor black dog as a term for depression has a long history. The negative image of black dogs dates to Roman times, when the poet Horace wrote that the sight of a black dog with puppies was a bad omen. Wordsmith Samuel Johnson used the phrase in the 18th century to describe his melancholia, and Brewers Dictionary of Phrase and Fable listed the saying a black dog has walked over him to describe a sullen person. In the 20th century, British prime minister Winston Churchill used the phrase black dog to refer to his own depression. Have you ever let the cat out of the bag? This idiom, referring to spilling a secret, has no clear origin, but Barbara Mikkelson of the urban folklore website Snopes.com wrote in 2012 that it could have to do with a similarity between the behavior of both secrets and cats once either is let out, they go wherever they want. I am reminded of the time our late cat Peter the Gray trapped himself inside a plastic bag and ran frantically back and forth down the hall trying to escape it. In much the same way, a secret-keeper often struggles to contain his or her knowledge until it finally bursts out the way Peter did from the bag. Its a dogs life. We all wish we could live that, dont we? Or do we? What does that phrase mean? In its earliest known reference in a 16th-century manuscript, it referred to a miserably unhappy existence. But considering the multi-billion-dollar pet industry in this country alone, I think that now we can safely say that the phrase refers to a pampered life indeed.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY Acupuncture Helps with Sleep IssuesQuestion: Can Acupuncture help improve my sleep? Answer: Summer is upon us and one of the busiest times of the year and yet at the end of the day many people have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep. Every day that I spend in the clinic I am reminded of this enduring truth: Acupuncture can always be counted on to put you to sleep. Why does sticking needles into your body help with sleep? In a state of sympathetic nervous response (fight or flight), which is activated from daily stressors all the resources of your body are recruited in effort to survive, thus redirecting blood flow to your muscles. It dilates your pupils and lungs. It accelerates your heart-rate. This cascade of physiological responses prepares your body to either run or fight. Acupuncture has the effect of stimulating the parasympathetics, thus dis-inhibiting this mechanism. So post acupuncture you can expect to experience all the benefits of the rest and digest phase of your nervous system; slower heart-rate, deeper sleep, smoother digestion, and increase general sense of well-being.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: firstname.lastname@example.orgAcuWellness Team: Christy Bongiovanni: Acupuncture Physician, Diplomate of Oriental Medicine, Holistic Health Coach Ask the Health & Beauty Experts Wellington Regional Medical Center starts Westlake ER center workGround was broken May 24 for the Wellington Regional Medical Centers 10,379-square-foot freestanding emergency medical facility in Westlake.

Keep food safety in mind this summerMouth-watering barbecue, tempting potato salad, delicious apple pie, and juicy watermelon wedges. These may be just a few of the delectable items gracing the picnic table this summer. But before you start loading up your plate and sitting down for a memorable meal, you might want to follow a few simple steps to make sure you dont accidently serve yourself some helpings of salmonella, E. coli or listeria. Food poisoning, or food borne illness, is more common during the warm summer months. Thats because those nasty little bacteria that are always present in the environment grow faster in temperatures from 90F to 110F; and since bacteria also like moisture, high humidity can help them flourish. To avoid the unwanted and quite uncomfortable side-effects of food poisoning, here are a few ways to keep your food safe from the time you buy it at the store, to the time you put leftovers away in the refrigerator.At the grocery storeCheck expiration dates for meat, poultry or fish. Put meats in plastic bags so juices do not leak onto other items in the cart. If buying eggs, make sure none are cracked. Buy refrigerated items last. Avoid fruits with broken skins, unpasteurized milk, ciders or juices, and pre-stuffed fresh turkeys or chickens. In the kitchenWash your hands before preparing food. Cook or freeze raw meat, poultry or fish within two days. Clean all fruits and vegetables with water to remove any pesticides, dirt or bacterial contamination. Remove the outer leaves of leafy greens, such as spinach or lettuce. Do not put cooked food on a dish that was holding raw meat, poultry or fish. Marinade food in the refrigerator.On the grillUse a thermometer to cook foods to proper internal temperatures, such as 160F for red meats and 180F for poultry. Fish should flake easily when cooked properly. Avoid partially cooking food ahead of time since this allows bacteria to survive and multiply to the point that subsequent cooking does not destroy them. At the picnicDo not leave food that requires refrigeration out for more than two hours (one hour if over 90F). Keep food in insulated coolers at 40F or below until ready to eat. Place coolers in the shade and avoid opening the lid too often. Keep foods hot by using chafing dishes and food cold by nesting dishes in bowls of ice. Avoid serving dairy products at picnics.In the refrigeratorRefrigerate leftovers as soon as possible. Do not over pack the refrigerator because that inhibits air circulation and slows down the cooling process. Eat leftovers in three to five days. If leftovers are frozen, eat them within two months. All foods can become contaminated, but properly handling, preparing and storing food can reduce the risk of food poisoning. If you have any doubts about the safety of food, throw it out. Better to be safe than sorry. When you have a nonlife-threatening emergency, theres no need to spend time waiting in the ER when you could wait at home. Use our online registration tool, and check in to the ER online. Go to www.pbgmc.com/inquicker.

One of the annual events sure to send your taste buds into a tizzy is Flavor Palm Beach, a monthlong celebration of Palm Beach County cuisine that runs from Sept. 1-30. So why are we telling you about it now? Believe it or not, reservations start in August and we want you to get in. The event, established in 2007 and now in its 11th year, was designed to lure diners to dinner at places that they wouldnt normally go. Briana Beaty modeled the idea after big-city events shed attended Miami Spice and NY Restaurant Week as a sideproject while working and raising a family. It took years, but Beaty built relationships with local chefs and restaurateurs, who came to see it for the genius idea it was. With lunches for $20 and dinners priced from $30 to $45, establishments that were once a wee bit too weighty on the wallet were suddenly budget-friendly. Now, mention Flavor Palm Beach and people drool and stress over how they can eat 50 fantastic restaurant meals in just 30 days. Thats why you should make a plan and were here to help. Last year, more than 50 restaurants participated. The restaurants havent been officially announced but last year, Charleys Crab, Imoto, Mortons The Steakhouse, Ruths Chris, Sant Ambroeus, Temple Orange at Eau, and Tommy Bahama in Harbourside Place all snagged a spot. Restaurants will be officially announced online in July. Make reservations online or contact the restaurant directly beginning on Aug .1.

Adults might find a special batch of grog or mead at the concession stand. Players will see their headshots on the scoreboard embellished with pirate garb. The evening is a fundraiser for Little Smiles, a nonprofit that works with hospitals and shelters to plan celebrations for the children in their care. I kind of equate them to a local Make-A-Wish Foundation, Mr. Bauer said. The smiles they put on those kids faces is no lie. The stadium has teamed up with Little Smiles in the past and decided to make the Palm Beach Gardens-based organization the beneficiary of the Pirate and Princess Night promotion. Theyre really good people over there, Mr. Bauer said. It was a perfect fit with the kids. Stephanie Duesing, public relations manager for Little Smiles, agreed. Pirate and Princess Night is a perfect fit for us because we are all about making kids smile, Ms. Duesing said. This event will give more people in the community the opportunity to get to know Little Smiles and see the impact we have in the lives of local children who are hurting. The charity serves an estimated 14,000 South Florida youths each year by bringing cheer to their bedsides through pizza parties, movie nights and junk-food runs. What if the cafeteria is closed, and theyre hungry, or they dont like the cafeteria food? Ms. Duesing said. Our junk-food runs help kids be kids. Boxes of macaroni and cheese, cans of Chef Boyardee, chips, crackers and Goldfish are popular items along with fruit snacks and juice boxes. Its not necessarily all junk food, but its a catchy name, Ms. Duesing said. We call it junk food, and it makes them happy. In February, the Stars Ball took place, a Hollywood-style awards gala that recognizes 10 children nominated by their caregivers for bravery and positivity. The nominees receive makeovers, formal attire, limousine rides to the red carpet and an autograph-signing session with their fans. The whole night is about these stars, Ms. Duesing said. August will see the return of Bamboozle, an outdoor-adventure scavenger search through downtown West Palm Beach. The theme is Heroes & Villains, and the entry fee is $100 per foursome. It is a crazy event that people go allout for, Ms. Duesing said. Little Smiles volunteers will be onhand at Pirate and Princess Night to give out information and spread the word. Being a part of the community is important to Roger Dean, and thats who we are, Ms. Duesing said. Were hoping itll be an annual thing, but we have to see how this year goes.

MONEY & INVESTINGStock in regional banks not large worthy of investment This year should be the year of the bank stock. The economy is strong. Unemployment is down. The yield curve is steepening. New laws give corporations huge tax breaks. The Fed recently allowed higher dividends and stock buyback programs for most banks. Bank profits are as healthy as ever. Yet, banks stocks are performing like we are in the middle of a recession. The XLF Exchange Traded Fund, one of the most widely owned ETF focusing on financial companies, is down over 10 percent year to date. So, why are financial stocks down and will this trend continue for the rest of the year? Some headwinds that the banks are facing are general macro forces. Most notably, investors fear how tariffs and potential trade wars will affect the economy as a whole and the banking sector in particular. When trade falls and the economy slows, there are fewer opportunities for banks to make loans or help in other funding sources. In addition, a slower economy should push long-term ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweekly.comHAPPINESS AS A CULTURAL PHENOMENON companywide: sound silly and unrealistic?

A18 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY EARL ON CARSDont get flipped to a lease!One of the most popular weapons in car dealers arsenals is the infamous lease flip. This is car dealer jargon for switching a customer who originally intended to buy a car to leasing the car. Of course, the motivation to do this is more profit for the dealer and a bigger commission to the salesman. Thats not to say that leasing a car is always costlier than buying one, but it can be if youre not careful. And not being careful is exactly what happens when a purchase intender becomes a lessee. Heres how it happens. You come into the dealership to buy a car. You may have seen the dealers advertisement in the newspaper or TV for a model you love. More than likely, youre prepared to make a down payment and/or trade in your old vehicle. You have a monthly payment in mind because almost everybody has a budget and we usually translate most purchases into whether we can fit them into our monthly budgets. You negotiate the best price you can to buy the car, or maybe the sale price is good enough. Now the salesman, or more often the F&I manager/business manager, tells you what your monthly payment will be. Lets say that you have a trade-in worth $15,000 and arent going to put any cash down. The F&I [Finance and Insurance] aka business manager, tells you your monthly payment will be $427 per month. But thats way more than you can afford and you tell him you cant buy the car because you cant afford that big a payment. He asks you how much you can afford and you tell him it must be under $350 per month. Now he has you set up perfectly for the lease flip. Mrs. Smith, I think I have just the right thing for you. What would you say if I told you that you can drive that new car home today for just $349 per month? You say, with glee, We have a deal! Guess what? Youve just been flipped. If you had bought the car at the advertised price or negotiated a very good price, the dealer probably would have made about $1,000 profit and the salesman would have made about a $200 commission. Not that youve let yourself be flipped to lease, the dealer could be making $15,000 and the salesman could be making a $3,000 commission! Im not exaggerating. I get calls weekly from victims of lease flips. Many of the callers are elderly and many of them are widows who never bought a car before, but had relied on their husbands. Theres no law that limits the profit that a dealer can make when he sells or leases a car. $10,000, $15,000, and even $20,000 profits are made and usually on leases. The dealers can do this by using the trade-in as a capital cost reduction on the lease but allowing less for the trade than it is worth. In the example above, y our trade-in may be worth $15,000 but you were allowed only $5,000 to reduce the capitalized costs of the lease. Also, the dealer could have raised the price of the car you negotiated or the sale price to MSRP or even 110 percent of MSRP which is allowable by the leasing companies. By manipulating the number of months of the lease and the down payment [capitalized cost reduction], a dealer can give you as low a payment as you ask for and still make an exorbitant profit. Most buyers are so focused on monthly payments that they dont carefully analyze what they are agreeing to and signing. The shorter the number of months of a lease, the greater impact the down payment has on the monthly payment. A $5,000 down payment reduces the monthly payment on a 36-month lease by $139 per month, $208 on a 24-month lease, and $417 on 12-month lease. Incredibly, many victims of the lease flip, never thought about the fact that after the 24or 36or 48-month term of the lease, they own nothing after the end of the lease. A car with a good resale value should be worth about half of what you paid for it. Many people who have never leased before think they can bring their lease car back early if they want. Leasing is not renting, and you can bring your car back early only if you make all of the remaining lease payments. If you had bought the car for $30,000 and financed it for 36 months, you would have about $15,000 in equity at the end of 36 months and no monthly payments. You were building equity with every monthly payment in the purchase, but you were building zero equity with your 36 lease payments. As I said before, dont let this frighten you from ever leasing a car. Leasing can be a good choice and sometimes the best choice.

BEHIND THE WHEEL2018 Lincoln Navigator sturdy SUV, solid luxury, hefty priceThe Lincoln Navigator name turns 20 years old in 2018, marking two decades of large American SUVs with serious luxury flair. And while there are no balloons at your local Lincoln dealer to celebrate this milestone, they do have a brand-new Navigator to show off. The original version debuted with a unique style. It might look tame by todays standards, but in 1998, the curved hood and waterfall grille gave some grace to the beefy truck-like machines. The second and third generations never seemed to recapture this magic, and Lincoln seemed to notice. Thats why the new model is purposely a standout. The fourth-generation Navigator borrows some of the cues from the rangetopping Continental sedan. Its seen in the headlights, long body creases, vintage fender vents and wheels that need more than two hands to count the spokes. Within these similarities is also some distinction. For example, that chain mesh grille looks like a small style element on the Continental, but its so large on the Navigator that it could be the SUVs coat of arms. The pictures dont even do it justice, because the large headlights, 22-inch wheels and massive Lincoln star hood ornament keep the overall large SUV in proportion. Its a neat visual trick that makes the Navigator look graceful from a distance but massive when standing next to it. Then again, that might be exactly what people want in a luxury SUV. The size also helps give it plenty of interior space. Three-row seating is standard. Adults can enjoy any seat even without the nine extra inches of wheelbase in the longer L version. The base $73,850 Premiere model lets buyers choose between a threeperson middle bench (for eight people total,) or individual captains chairs at no additional cost. This is true at all trim levels, except at the top-of-the-line $97,250 Black Label that only comes with heated bucket seats and a console in the center. Approaching six-figures is new territory for Lincoln. They seem to take it seriously by giving the Black Label plenty of luxury, such as a voice-activated navigation system, panoramic sunroof, 20-speaker stereo, a technology package with head-up display, and 24-way power adjusting seats that have individual bolstering for each leg (long-distance drivers will find this very handy.) Its also only available as a 4x4 with Fords full trailering package as standard. There even are complete interior theme packages at this level. Our test car with classic blue leather, white piping and pearl white accents is known as Yacht Club. But other worthwhile features are standard on all models, such as the triple-zone climate control and power adjustable pedals. All trims, except the base one, also get motorized running boards that automatically deploy when the key holder approaches the SUV. So, theres real luxury at all model levels. Each version of the Navigator also receives the same 3.5-liter twin turbo V6 found in the Ford F-150 Raptor. Its mated to the same 10-speed automatic transmission and produces an identical 450 horsepower. However, while the off-roader has the rip-snarling personality of a wild wolf, the Lincoln is as tame as a purebred. The motor is programed to feel capable in all conditions. Its quiet in normal everyday driving, and its also always ready for the right kickdown to merge onto the interstate. Plus, the suspension is soft without being a bouncy reminder of the tall ride height. It still rides like a truck, but its quite a fancy truck. The Navigator now is priced firmly into territory thats occupied by premium European crossovers. Those competitors insert some sporty appeal into a family-style size thats not what this Lincoln is about. Instead, the Navigator is sort of like buying a cowboy hat at Brooks Brothers. Just like the Cadillac Escalade, its delivering large truck space in a leather-lined package. This new Navigator re-captures the originals standout spirit. But the key to being worth the extra money is all the extra amenities that are offered without losing the American-style size or capacity. Thats whats needed when a big machine wants to compete with the big names in luxury. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com earlSTEWARTearls@estoyota.com561-358-1474
a rich company culture, explained Dr. Sandra Kauanui, director of the Institute for Entrepreneurship and professor of entrepreneurship and management at Florida Gulf Coast University. She speaks not just as an academic, but as a real-world business owner. Before earning her Ph.D. in her 40s, she founded and built her own financial business, and she still teaches the lessons learned there. People want to work where they can grow, not where they feel limited. I built my business based on that, she said. Everybody there with me got into it because they felt like it was a fun place to be. I started off in a one-room office building and built a 12,000 square-foot office with 40 employees. She never lost employees, she said. Instead, they lost her (she sold the business) because she wanted to study, teach and share. My doctorate is in organizational behavior, and the data doesnt support the notion that higher salaries equal happiness. Money is a factor, yes. But its not everything. There has to be intrinsic motivation, driven by the feeling that youre a part of something thats growing, something you believe in. Communicating keyThat starts with clear communication between owners and workers with knowing what the company stands for, says Mark Belker, a CPA and consultant who specializes in improving company culture. Which in turn improves productivity, creativity, longevity and success. First, you need to understand what the culture is and look for the holes in assumptions, Mr. Belker suggested. There are often unwritten assumptions that come from the owners, assumptions that describe how the company operates relative to employees, customers and internal conflicts. Understand where the holes in those assumptions are, to start with. Mr. Belker uses several methods to do that, depending on the situation and company organizational surveys, for example. Or to analyze and strengthen a smaller companys culture, he might use a profile of the owners, their behavior and their values. Then I try to facilitate a meeting (between owners and employees) to shape what the shared values are or should be. What are the values this company wants to represent, and what are specific behaviors that represent those values? Often, he acknowledges, that approach is not an easy sell to owners who think their values and assumptions have gotten them so far, and who might not be inclined to try something new and better. As it turns out, too, there isnt a specific methodology that always works, Mr. Belker said. There are not just three or four different ways to act. Its where that company is in the environment, and what external pressures are affecting the company and the workforce.Knowing and caringShontra Powell, vice president of sales strategy and operations for the Hertz Corp., takes it a step further. I agree with Dr. Kauanui that its not just salary that creates a rich culture in the workplace, she said, after a reporter mentioned Dr. Kauanuis observations. Instead, its absolutely understanding what it is that motivates people to do what they do. For the most part, fulfillment depends on knowledge. The only way to understand what fulfillment is, is to go to the next layer in management and know the person. Know the person and the legacy that matters to him or her. For one employee, satisfaction might come from starting a legacy in a new place for a family, she said. For another, it might be a workplace legacy that boosts an employees ability to serve a wider range of people in a region. For yet another, the legacy might be about impact and involvement further up the hierarchy. Unless you understand that piece, she added, you might not create a more vibrant workplace culture. So from a company standpoint, it starts with how you talk about whats important to you in knowing the mission and vision and setting out a strategy for leaders carried all the way through. Like attracts like, she noted. When a company does a good job of communicating what it stands for, it attracts others like that people who communicate and care. An extraordinary example of a business owner whose view of mission and employee welfare together has created a thriving company of 38 employees with little turnover for years at a time is Marc Devisse, president of Tri-Town Construction. Tri-Town specializes in high-end home remodeling, kitchens and home additions from Marco Island to North Fort Myers, along with others. For me, making a bunch of money and being the richest guy in the world is not satisfying, in itself, Mr. Devisse said. If I succeed I want everybody who is loyal, who has given it their all, to succeed with me. If they dont succeed where Im succeeding, thats not success. He rewards his employees, people who are loyal and work hard and give it their all, generously. When he describes the company culture hes created this way at Tri-Town, Mr. Devisse seems to echo the wisdom of academicians and consultants who specialize in creating richer company cultures. But he didnt learn it in a business school, he admitted. He learned it by watching his mother and father succeed and fail at different businesses over the years, and by paying close attention to business owners he thought did it best. His distillation of those people and his experience and therefore his view of employees in his own business, and what makes them tick is telling. They have to have job security, to feel safe in their job, he said. They have to have the feeling that what theyre doing is valuable. They have to have a sense of accomplishment. I give them responsibilities, and I let them handle issues without stepping in. Training goes a long way, acknowledgement of a job well done goes a long way, and we try to keep our mood light. What does that mean? I dont want to say were a bunch of goofballs, but we have fun, we enjoy being there, we enjoy spending time at the office with each other. For me its caring over profit. Thats true in times of profit or trouble, either one, he said. We are there to step in and offer help for our people when or if they need it. And they do the same for us and each other.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2018 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE A19rates lower, resulting in a flatter yield curve that negatively affects bank profits. Other forces negatively affecting bank stocks are specific to this sector. First, loan growth is slowing. As interest rates have started to rise, fewer individuals are refinancing mortgages or car loans. This depresses loan fees and loan growth. Second, there is growing concern over loan defaults in some areas of Europe and emerging market countries. Brexit, as well as political uncertainty in places like Italy and some South American countries, has investors wondering if greater loan defaults are around the corner. Finally, some analysts are concerned that financial tech stocks are stealing market share away from traditional banks and that this trend will only accelerate. They believe that as more business is performed online, companies like Paypal and Square will bank more of these businesses at the expense of banks like Bank of America or Wells Fargo. Analysts are mixed on the prospects of the financial sector. I believe that the companies are a good value play at these levels. With the Fed allowing greater paybacks to shareholders, many have meaningfully increased their dividends, stock buybacks or both. In addition, with the current strong economy, bank earnings should be strong over the next few quarters. In addition, all financial companies are not the same and their prospects will differ as well. I believe that regional banks and smaller financial companies will outperform larger banks. Thats because these financial institutions generally do not have international exposure. In addition, these companies are not as dependent on trading operations like larger banks, which increases volatility of earnings. And finally, these smaller banks have smaller businesses as customers. And smaller businesses are growing faster than larger companies that are being affected by a potential trade war.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY COLLECTORS CORNER scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org Im darned lucky. And I recognize that 90 percent of being lucky simply is believing that you are lucky. I thought about that as I pondered the mess at The Humble Hovel, where the sorting of trash and treasures has kicked into high gear. After all, I awaken each day to do a job thats of service to others and I get to hunt down treasures and, best of all, I get to share them with you. I cant get much luckier than that. I recently have been reminded that life is fleeting. Recognizing that it all could go away in an instant makes it all the more precious. My colleagues and I have had much to ponder the past couple of weeks as we have faced the brutal reality that five fellow journalists were gunned down in Maryland while being of service and doing the jobs they loved. It especially hit home for those of us who worked at The Palm Beach Post in the early 1990s, when Rob Hiaasen honed his storytelling skills into a high art at the paper, making us remember the forgotten and care for those whom society had neglected. Rob, who was murdered on that fateful day in June at The Capital Gazette, was as kind as he was talented. Thats a special blessing in a highly competitive field like journalism, where it is easy to become jaded by the sadness and cruelty that dominate the news. By all rights, Rob, who was 59, should have died an old man, 30 or 40 years from now, surrounded by his children and grandchildren. That was not in his future, and we are all the more diminished by it. But there are ways of coping with these losses. Among them: Whatever you do, dont tempt fate. Never say things cant get any worse, because they always can, and they will do so in spades. Avoid wallowing, if you can. It only makes you feel worse. Be good to yourself. We need to take care of ourselves. Commit to doing one good thing for yourself each day. Take a walk, pray, meditate, write, create whatever edifies you. It will prepare you to take on whatever the world tosses your way and will enable you to be of service to others. Be grateful. Count your blessings. Its a clich, but theres a lot of value in taking stock. In the days following the shootings, I found treasures that caught my eye each place I visited, and I heard a kind word from just about everyone I encountered. That probably was because I was open to it. I needed the good to happen, so it did. How does this translate into an antiques column? As a collector, Im always looking for that next great find. But in clearing out, Im learning to be content with what I already have. And whether Im permitted to walk the Earth for five more years or for 50, treasures will come and go from The Humble Hovel as my collections continue to evolve. I will remember the people I have met along the way its the stories that make objects fascinating. And I will take my own advice, remembering to breathe in and breathe out. You can bet Ill find treasure, help you identify yours where possible, then write about our finds. My subject matter is not hard news, but it is more than just a job to share my stories with you. Its a privilege. Thats how Rob Hiaasen felt, and Im sure his colleagues in Maryland would agree that were grateful for the opportunity to share. Thank you. SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe stories make my treasures special to me. Inset: Miss Rose the cat sits with a pair of 19th-century Staffordshire spaniels given to me by my friend Melissa Carter, who inherited them from her mom and wanted them to be loved. They are. Above: My friend Jeffrey Burgess of James & Jeffrey Antiques gave me this 20th-century Staffordshire lion after seeing the picture of Miss Rose with the spaniels. I adore it.Sharing stories and finds is a privilege I cant take for granted We perform music of all genresClassical, Pop, Ethnic, Spiritual, Broadway!

ful story that we wanted to bring to audiences, because we think thats what the world needs right now. He said Guthrie always said the people and the land of America inspired his material and he was the voice of the disenfranchised. Woody said this country and the people that make it run are its heart and soul, he said. Hes known for saying he didnt really write anything. He just took his stories from the people he met along the way and passed them on. The show, conceived by Peter Glazer and orchestrated by Jeff Waxman, features more than two dozen of the legendary balladeers songs, including Bound for Glory, Grand Coulee Dam, Nine Hundred Miles, Hard Travelin, Union Maid, Pastures of Plenty and his most famous piece, This Land is Your Land. In addition, Mr. Glazer compiled all the dialogue from Guthries writings. The cast of five actor/musicians each of whom plays at least three different instruments features, in alphabetical order, Cat Greenfield, Don Noble, Sean Powell, Jeff Raab and Julie Rowe. They are joined onstage by musicians Joshua, Michael and Tom Lubben, West Palm Beach-based triplets who are familiar to many locals as The Lubben Brothers, an acoustic folk band that also includes two of their wives. Mr. Linser said Woody Guthries songs are as vital and vibrant today as they were when he wrote them, nearly a century ago. Theres a character in the show who says folk songs are on their way out, he said. But another says, As long as weve got wrecks, disasters, floods, trade union troubles, high prices, low pay and politicians, folk songs are on their way in. I think thats why Woody Guthrie has maintained this fascination and appeal, because he speaks to the collective experience. When you boil humanity down, we all want the same things. Were all driven by the same desires to l ove, to be cared for, to feel protected and safe. We want food on our table and a roof over our head. And I think Woody really encapsulates that in his words and music in a way that is really powerful. The show uses Guthries own storytelling to create narrative contexts for his music. Most of the words in this show are straight out of his journals, writings, books and lyrics, he said. Every character in this piece at some point takes Woodys words as their own. For example, Bound For Glory is one of the big songs in this show. What the writers have done is create a situation of who these people are around that particular song. Theyre all on a boxcar heading west just after the Dust Bowl, to hopefully work on the Grand Coulee Dam. The shows creators have taken the story of these people riding the rails looking for a better life and built it around the lyrics of the song of a train thats bound for glory. Mr. Linser, who also serves as manager of the theaters Dramaworkshop an arm that develops and presents world premieres for the mainstage with an eye for moving them to other theaters across the country is no stranger to the directors chair. He recently directed Avenue Q, Little Shop of Horrors and Company for MNM Productions, as well as The Submission and Into The Woods at Florida Atlantic University. The World Goes Round, which he also directed for MNM in 2016, won a Carbonell Award for Best Ensemble. He said one of the aspects he likes so much about Woody Guthries American Song is its unique structure. What this show does so brilliantly is it tells two stories simultaneously, he said. One, you get the story of Woodys life and career and two, you get the story of America and how we became what we are through such trials as the Dust Bowl and the Great Depression all told through Woodys writings and lyrics. Mr. Linser said he hopes audiences will be moved by the shows storytelling. But more than that I hope they take away a realization of the need we all have for a common understanding of our own humanity, he said. Weve gotten so polarized in this country that weve stopped listening to each other. Weve stopped discussing issues, understanding our differences and finding middle ground. I think thats what we need now, more than ever. PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B7 PUZZLE ANSWERS Zachary Myers (Lepidus), Carlos Rivera Marin (Meridon/Soothsayer) and Seth Trucks (Octavius). This adaptation of William Shakespeares seldom performed classic invites audiences to see Cleopatra seeking revenge on those who have maligned her throughout history, according to director Trent Stephens, who trimmed the play from four hours to 90 minutes. Weve sort of speculated the idea that Cleopatra is being raised from the dead by archeologists, Mr. Stephens said. When they do so, a curse falls upon them and through the lens of her own perspective, get to go back in time and live out the last days of her and Mark Antonys lives. Taking this tack, he hopes, will help give audiences a more rounded view of Cleopatra than historians have done. History is written by the victor and our understanding of who Cleopatra was has been so influenced by what the Romans wanted to do to her reputation, Mr. Stephens said. They had a disdain for powerful women. The Roman historian Plutarch seemed to look past Queen Cleopatras nobility, her tutelage, her political exploits, her economic contributions and her motherhood only to slander her as a trollop a low blow from which her legacy would never recover. He said Shakespeare was very aware of the Egyptians belief in the afterlife and immortality as well as references to their goddess Isis, who was patron of magic, nature and healing and protector of the dead. All of this, he said, played into his concept for this production. In the story as Shakespeare wrote it, Cleopatra was maneuvering and manipulating people, possibly playing a long game, Mr. Stephens said. Maybe she was thinking about her own immortality how she would carry on into the afterlife or how she would be remembered in generations to come. I think if she were to come back today, she would be very upset that all of her achievements and incredible contributions as a monarch who leveraged kingdoms of the West have been summed up solely in this affair she had with Marc Antony. Mr. Stephens maintained his greatest challenge in mounting this production has been editing it down and eliminating many of the political subplots of the play most notably Octavius Caesar eliminating people (Mark Antony being one of them) to become the last man standing as the first emperor of Rome to better focus on the relationship between the title characters. Subtitling it The Curse of Cleopatra invites the audience into our concept, he said. Weve streamlined it down to the very best parts of the play, most notably the story of Mark Antony and Cleopatra. This play is so rarely performed. Not a lot of people do it. This is my first time having a hand in with the play and its really exciting were bringing it to Carlin Park. Mr. Stephens added he hopes audiences will take from this production a sense of how malleable Shakespeares plays can be, which is a tribute to the Bards genius. We take a post-modern approach to Shakespeare, he said. And we tend to gravitate towards the psychological aspects of his writing. I hope we give the audience earnest questions to ask themselves. Most of all, I hope they have some fun with our concept, which is kind of like a Boris Karloff mummy movie. I hope they enjoy that and I hope they ponder Cleopatra and what western empires do to slander and defame strong and intelligent women. That goes on even today, particularly in our own society and divisive political rhetoric. Palm Beach Shakespeare Festivals Antony and Cleopatra>> When: July 12-15 and 19-22.

B8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com FLORIDA WRITERSA highly original time-shifting thriller rendered in gorgeous prose The Shimmer by Carsten Stroud. Mira Books. 304 pages. Hardcover, $26.99.Carston Strouds daring, magnetic and brilliantly constructed novel will take you places youve never been. Well, you might have been to Jacksonville, St. Augustine and New Orleans but you will not have encountered the kind of timetravel orchestration of action that Mr. Stroud manages to portray with such power and authoritative detail. Authoritative is the right word. These places and what happens in them and then unhappens are so compellingly imagined that you will believe what cant be true. The narrative begins with an unforgettable high-speed chase episode, and it gains momentum from there. In the present, Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Jack Redding pursues a serial killer, a kind of time-traveling femme fatale who back in 1957 was sought by his grandfather, Clete Redding, of the Jacksonville police. The cycles of pursuit and escape follow this evil spirit known as Selena, Diana and by several other names as well. Her lifetime is extended by time shifts that involve riding a time-bending force called The Shimmer. To catch her, one must follow her. Time markers in the Selena story go back to 1914. One aspect of the plot premise is the possibility that the damage Selena has done can be undone by adjustments in or to time. However, such adjustments, if made by entering through the wrong temporal portal, can have disastrous unintended consequences. Characters travel into the past to shape (reshape?) the future, but the o utcomes of their efforts, even if in pursuit of justice, are unpredictable. The author builds a fascinating logic of cause and effect that keeps readers hooked while also keeping them guessing. As the characters slide (or shimmer) from the world we share to the world adjusted by time travel, our belief in them is carried over to our belief in what they experience and hold true. Can a tragedy that occurs on the Matanzas Inlet bridge along Floridas route A1A be wiped away by a time shift back to before the bridge was built? If so, what other time-bound occurrences will be altered? Can parallel catastrophes happen decades apart in the lives of a grandfather and grandson? Can they have a glimmer of the past or future that suggests the characters own unmooring from their temporal destinies?Mr. Stroud explores such questions in a manner that suggests both that he is having a great deal of fun and that he takes these questions seriously or pretends to, with great gusto and seeming conviction. The plot includes several oddly linked family crises, a Mafia crime family with curious relationships to Clete Redding and to Selena, and several physically and psychically twinned characters, women with identities or character traits in parallel. This authors prose is totally satisfying, his sentences and paragraphs precisely crafted, and his shifts into unexpected humor perfectly timed and consistently telling. Everything sounds just right. He draws the various locations indelibly, paying careful attention to the contrasts of now and then. Most magnificent is his poetic rendering of The Shimmer doing its time-warp thing. Its a blast. Mr. Stroud brings many new elements to the thriller genre, which for his work may be merely a publishers marketing label. The what if that drives this story adds the dimension of several truly big ideas. What a joy it is to discover a writer whose craft is so fine and who is not ashamed to make his readers think deeply. He has raised the suspension of disbelief to a very high level.About the authorCarsten Stroud worked in law enforcement and as an investigative journalist.

B10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINELee Morris had the kind of parents who took him along, no matter how young he was, whenever they went out to a fancy restaurant for dinner. Those occasions, along with the cooking lessons Chef Morris got every Friday night from his foodie father and working in restaurants during high school whet his appetite for a culinary arts career. Soon after he graduated from high school, his dad dropped him off in Charleston, S.C., with a few hundred bucks and a place to stay to see how he would fare on his own. It was like a kid being thrown into an Olympic-size pool to see if he could swim, said Chef Morris, the executive chef at 1000 North, a new restaurant and club on the Jupiter waterfront. At the end of his first year in Charleston, he enrolled in Johnson & Wales. He has been in love with the profession ever since. Charleston is a great food town, with beautiful restaurants, beautiful people, he said. Its a hospitality-driven town with a great college feel to it with the College of Charleston. It has tons of history and beaches. Talk about an A-plus town, its Charleston! After college, he worked for Hall Management Group, the Lowcountrys leading collection of fine dining restaurants. He gained an appreciation for the areas distinctive produce, seafood and classic dishes as he worked alongside well-known Charleston Chef Frank Lee, who had previously worked at North of Broad. Chef Morris spent years in upscale corporate restaurants such as Hillstone restaurants and Bricktops and was executive chef at Bricktops Palm Beach. But his current focus is at 1000 North, which officially opened in February in the Jupiter Inlet district. Two of the owners are former NBA superstar Michael Jordan and professional gofer Ernie Els. Its an open-air restaurant with beautiful views with large windows, big open kitchen and its sort of picturesque everywhere you look, he said. It captures a lot of the great views of the inlet the lighthouse and the dock, the mangroves and of the Loxahatchee. Weve had rave reviews about the view. The food is getting good buzz, as well. We wanted to take a little of the Lowcountry feel, taking advantage of local seafood, being on the river, being on the Intracoastal, being seafood-centric, and then we tied that into a couple of our dishes such as bourbon and hay-roasted oysters and Charleston she crab soup, he said. The eatery also has a steakhouse feel and serves six prime cuts, mac and cheese a la carbonara, truffle salt fries and charred broccolini and small bites, too. Lots of choices. Chef Morris met his wife, Page, when they both worked at Houstons in Irvine, Calif. They have a 2-year-old daughter, McKesson. When hes at home, Chef Morris like to cook outside, barbecuing by the pool. Lee Morris Age: 41 Original hometown: Washington, D.C. Restaurant: 1000 North, Jupiter, 561570-1000, www.1000north.com. Open for lunch, brunch and dinner. Mission: To get better every day, be a master of my craft and to have fun! Cuisine: Contemporary regional American Where do you find your inspiration? Traveling, cookbooks, magazines and life experiences. Training: Johnson & Wales, Charleston, S.C.; Chef Frank Lee (Slightly North of Broad); Hillstone Restaurant Group (California); Palm Restaurant (Nashville) Whats your footwear of choice in the kitchen? Dansko professional clogs What advice would you give someone who wants to be a chef? Go to culinary school. Pay attention to everything every little detail is very important. Find a restaurant and a chef that you love and go work your way to the top. Repeat that process a couple of times, and then you can think about becoming an executive chef or restaurateur. In the kitchen with...LEE MORRIS, 1000 North in Jupiter BY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@floridaweekly.com PHOTO BY TRACEY BENSONChef Lee Morris has settled in at 1000 North, along the Intracoastal in Jupiter.Paso Robles winemakers imaginative, lightheartedOne of the qualities that impressed me and my wine journalist colleagues during a tour of Californias Paso Robles wine region is that so many of the winemakers have a lot of fun with what they do. Not only are they being imaginative with the blends theyre creating (and the label designs) but their interests and enterprises go quite a bit beyond grapes. Several of the winery owners we met are cattle ranchers and growers of other cash crops. While theyre serious about making great wine, theyre a bit lighthearted about the wine world in general. Some of them drive pickups and wear cowboy hats. Much of the architecture echoes that sensibility. Many of the wineries and restaurants have a definite old west look to them, but their approach to cuisine and wine is sophisticated. Maybe 50 years ago or so the areas main products were hay and cattle. Anyone who grew grapes sold them to the folks in Napa and Sonoma. That changed when local people started to realize the potential of the soil, the climate and the influence of the weather that came in off the nearby coast. So today, theres a lot to like, both from the tourism standpoint and the range of varietals, which you should definitely try. Chronic Cellars Pink Pedals Ros Paso Robles 2017 ($15) Heres what I mean about a playful approach to winemaking. The Beckett familys blend of 87 percent Grenache and 13 percent Syrah offers aromas of cherry and watermelon, followed by a hint of strawberry. The raspberry flavors kick in a bit later. Great with spicy cuisine like Thai or Szechuan. WW 88. Chronic Cellars Sofa King Bueno Red Blend Paso Robles 2016 ($22) A steal at $22, this is a complex Rhne blend of Syrah, Grenache, Petite Sirah, Mourvdre and Tannat. Blackberry all over the place, complemented by herbal notes and bold tannins. WW 91.Ask the Wine WhispererQ. When you assign rating points to the wines you review, how do you decide whats good and what isnt? What process do you use to evaluate and judge the wines you recommend? Bruce S., West Palm BeachA. First, I do not rate wines by myself. There are two kinds of wine in the world: the kind you like and the kind you dont. A tasting panel helps me evaluate the sample bottles I receive from wineries and their public relations firms. My sampling friends are all serious and very critical wine lovers. One is an executive at a major wine and spirits distributor, the others are high-end collectors with hundreds if not thousands of bottles in their cellars. We meet about once every six weeks. We compare what we sense from the color, the aromas, the flavors, and other important characteristics, discussing each in considerable detail. Then we suggest a value on the 100point scale, and I sort of take an average. At each session we generally sample and evaluate between 25 and 30 wines. jerryGREENFIELDvino@floridaweekly.com VINOVineyards in the Paso Robles wine region of central California.
PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 12-18, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B11The Dish: Calzone The Place: Four Brothers Italian Restaurant, 2495 10th Ave. N., Lake Worth; 561-969-6046 or www.pizzafourbrothers.com. The Price: $8; extra ingredients are $1 a per item. The Details: Four Brothers is a classic red-sauce Italian spot that Ive visited for the better part of three decades. Theres nothing flashy here its not a fine-dining spot, but it is a place for good eating, and sometimes, thats more important. Four Brothers also has a booming takeout business. My calzone had a crisp, yet tender crust that gave way to epic quantities of ricotta and mozzarella. The marinara served on the side was slightly sweet, but tangy, and let the tomato flavors shine through.

Get some conch fritters, or Island BBQ shrimp or the tempura grouper cheeks, a favorite. Sit back, sip a cool one and take in all the sights surrounding the inlet.1 FRIGATES WATERFRONT BAR & GRILL400 U.S. Highway 1, North Palm Beach. 561-855-7497; www.frigatesnpb.com. Eat and drink on the deck overlooking a small canal (water is water). The live bands, and laid-back vibe make this a favorite watering hole where an app or two is sufficient.3 E.R. BRADLEYS104 N. Clematis St., West Palm Beach. 561-833-3520; www.erbradleys.com. The classic for ladies who lunch, Bradleys has quite a reputation to maintain. They live up to it at night, when it becomes a meet-up spot, sort of. A late-night burger in the open-air eatery is pretty tasty; the drinks are stiff and the band engaged. Jan Norris, firstname.lastname@example.org FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE COURTESY PHOTO Frigates Waterfront Bar & Grill is just north of Northlake Boulevard on U.S. 1. The plant-based diet is going mainstream evidenced by restaurants and health-centered stores carrying vegetarian and vegan foods. Now, those who eschew animal foods, including dairy and eggs, have a new resource available: Bean Scene Productions Vegan Kitchen Collective in Lake Park. The mentor behind the group of women who are baking and preparing vegan foods in a shared space is Nina Kauder, a chef trained at the Culinary Institute of America in New York. Ten years ago, she switched from a mainstream diet to a plant-based one for health reasons. She also decided to learn all she could about vegan foods and nutrition, and recently earned a certificate from Cornell University in plant-based nutrition and foods. The co-op kitchen was about a year in the making, she said. We started talking to each other about a cooperative, and then formulating a plan. Then we started looking for a place. It took longer than expected. Negotiating a lease for a former bakery, then rebuilding to accommodate the group also stretched things out, but on June 30, they held their grand opening. Along with Ms. Kauder, who will primarily be teaching cooking classes and catering, is Amie Miller, a holistic nutritionist. Shes the Salad Artisan who sells her prepared jarred salads at area greenmarkets. Her vegan version of a taco salad with walnut taco meat is one of the most popular, she said. Ms. Miller is not entirely vegan or vegetarian, but its the bulk of her diet. I think theres a misconception you have to have animal protein in every meal. In fact, she said, plant-based foods are just as satisfying. Brie Ezratty, who follows a vegan diet for environmental and animal concerns, is producing baked goods familiar to any sweets lover. Foods she produces from The Baked Vegan Bakery cupcakes, chocolate chip cookies, and baked donuts soon are inspired by everyday junk and munchies food, she said. Scones are the newest hit. Theyre made with organic all-purpose flour, grapeseed oil, a little organic cane syrup and oat milk I love it for baked goods. She said she can make any kind of cookie in a vegan formula. One of her secrets is using unsweetened applesauce in place of the eggs in a dough. Katy Belmont is behind Katys Lovebites another bakery. She makes brownies, vegan cakes and cookies, as well as gluten-free and raw desserts. She focuses on low-glycemic desserts and vegan treats with no refined sugar. Instead, she uses maple syrup, and coconut and palm sugar. Along with the others, she caters, and handles corporate and private clients who follow plant-based diets. She also sells wholesale. The women cook and bake to order, but some items are available at the kitchen, Ms. Kauder said, and theyll be carrying products from other chefs. Look for vegan tiramisu and cheezcakes. The first series of cooking classes went beyond expectations, she said. People are hungry no pun intended for these kinds of classes. Bean Scene Productions Kitchen Collective, 1408 N. Killian Drive, No. 104, Lake Park. Phone: 561-288-0358; www. beansceneproductions.com.Wine Spectator AwardsCongratulations are in order for area restaurants tapped for prestigious Wine Spectator Awards. They include the Grand Award going to Marcellos La Sirena in West Palm Beach, and HMF at The Breakers in Palm Beach. Its the highest award given by the organization that recognizes wine lists and wine service at public restaurants. Its given to those who show an uncompromising, passionate devotion to the quality of their wine program. Only 91 restaurants around the world achieved the distinction. A number of restaurants in Palm Beach County were awarded the Award of Excellence including The Regional in West Palm Beach, and Okeechobee Steakhouse first-time winners in the category. More than 2,400 winners internationally were chosen for their well-chosen assortment of quality producers, and matching the menu thematically, among other things.In brief Bastille Day is Saturday, the 14th, and offering up specials is Paris in Town Le Caf and Le Bistro both locations in Palm Beach Gardens. Look for special menus and drink deals centered on classics. Pistache in downtown West Palm Beach is getting in on the celebration with Champagne specials and classic French menu items. Theyre also gungho for the FIFA World Cup games and the TV in the bar is tuned to it; the final games are Sunday, July 15. janNORRISjan@jannorris.com Bean Scene opens vegan kitchen in Lake Park COURTESY PHOTO A cake from Katys Lovebites, which specializes in low-glycemic desserts.KAUDER SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLY
