COMMENTARYRubio comes callingA version of this column ran two years ago in July, during the lost summer of 2016. In Mr. Williams view, little has changed.What we dont want is for this to be a glimpse of the future. But thats what we fear were seeing this year: a fish-killing, people-sickening, tourist offending, filthy-water look at things to come. A glimpse of Atlantic and Gulf beaches east and west of Lake Okeechobee so devastated by our effluent that few will want to live on them or fish off them, and visitors will pointedly avoid them. Such a reality would mean huge economic losses and a widespread decline in the quality of life along Floridas southern coasts, both east and west. That increasingly common fear along with Sen. Marco Rubios need to sympathize with it, and thus to garner votes for his 2016 Senate run brought him last week to both coasts of Florida, where Gov. Rick Scott has declared a state of emergency. I dont remember Sen. Rubio ever appearing on either coast before just to talk about the fight for cleaner water. Warm and attentive in person a darksuited 6-footer with only slightly receding black hair and a talent for appearing comfortably focused in front of cameras or small groups water hasnt been one of his big-punch battles, after all. Those have included fights against Cuban communists, terrorists, gun-control advocates, illegal immigrants and his lost battle for the presidential nomination. Those were his fights, rather than water. But now, with fish dying and tourists changing their Florida plans and local commissioners encouraging more development and waterfront properties becoming harder to sell and with even less regulation of water uses by industry, agriculture and construction than in past years I went to see the senator. He had traveled to a lovely old meeting house on the banks of the Caloosahatchee River, in downtown Fort Myers. Out those windows we watched the turgid, mile-wide river bearing its filthy excess to the nearby Gulf from the vast cattle populations along the Kissimmee south of Orlando, from Lake O. itself 50 miles east of Fort Myers, from the runoff of sugar and citrus operations, from suburban lawns, from a multitude of poorly regulated septic systems numbering in the tens to the hundreds of thousands. We watched all of it sliding silently west only 15 or so miles from its mouth near Sanibel Island, water released by the Army Corps of Engineers to protect an over-budget boondoggle of a dike repair job now years behind schedule. I hadnt come to look at that river or its history, though. I wanted to stand near Sen. Rubio, who was pushing the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan. I wanted to look at him, to listen to him, and to study the people around him. The meeting was closed to the public (it was easier that way, a Rubio staffer told me), but not to mayors, county commissioners, state representatives, chambers-of-commerce officials and a couple of environmentalists who joined him to express their concerns, with television and newspaper reporters looking on. Was the senator finally getting serious? His personal water history wasnt promising but perhaps hed changed. Not long after he won his Senate seat, Sen. Rubio shrugged off our mounting water woes by joining the deregulators in federal and state government. Not only did they include Gov. Scott, who eviscerated the states water protection arm in 2011 by firing hundreds of state regulators in an effort to downsize government and its influence in our lives, but they also included David Vitter, the senior U.S. senator from Louisiana. First, Sen. Rubio had applauded Gov. Scotts loosening of water regulations and his bid to stop the federal Environmental Protection Agency from stepping in to monitor and regulate Florida water: I will continue working with my colleagues in Washington to prevent this EPA power grab from ruining Floridas economy, he said at the time. Then, less than two years later, he signed a David Vitter letter with 30 other Republicans, stiff-arming cleaner-water proposals. If the EPA is allowed to move forward with this guidance, the letter said, streams, lakes and wetlands in nearly all of our states are going to be overburdened with federal bureaucracy.At the meeting last week, however, the senator agreed that the Everglades plan was only a first step in the very slow and much bigger process of real restoration slow because leaders are not willing to suggest we spend more money, or to buy lands south of Lake Okeechobee en masse, where lake water can be released. One step at a time, he cautioned.Standing near television reporters, I had a chance to talk with him. So, I asked: Has your opinion about the need to regulate water changed? Should the EPA be involved now?More regulations arent the answer, he told me. And neither is the EPA. If you get them involved, he said, they can regulate you even if you have only one little puddle on your property. Aside from further regulating Big Ag and Big Sugar, what about requiring everyone up and down both the Caloosahatchee and the St. Lucie to update their septic systems, I asked? Too expensive, Sen. Rubio suggested, recalling how hard his family struggled in West Miami when residents were required to spend thousands updating their septic systems there. Not everybody has $10,000 for new septic, he said. But is it too expensive to save our water, our beaches and our economies by offering government help for those who cant pay? Is it too expensive to monitor what goes into the water from industries and agriculture with more discipline and caring? Is it too expensive to save what is now dying, and will die if we dont? I didnt get to ask the senator those questions. So, I leave them to voters. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com 1/2 PRICE SALE 1/2 PLUS buy 3 get a 4th FREE!THE ULTIMATE FOOTWEAR EXPERIENCE Luxury Comft Footar 10953 N.

OPINIONRaining on Trumps paradePresident Donald Trump was bitterly disappointed that he was forced to cancel his ego trip down Washington, D.C., streets. The parade of U.S. military units was to be his biggest display yet of people marching in lockstep, bigger even than any gathering of Republicans. He really wanted to stand on a reviewing stand as the troops and hardware did their thing below just like they do for Kim Jong Un, Vladimir Putin and the others he wants to emulate but the disclosed cost of $92 million for this Defense Department dog and pony show is indefensible. So, of course, he did what all spoiled children do when they dont get their way: He threw a tantrum a Twitter tantrum. The local politicians who run Washington, D.C. (poorly) know a windfall when they see it, he pecked on his dumbphone. When asked to give us a price for holding a great celebratory military parade, they wanted a number so ridiculously high that I cancelled it. Never let someone hold you up! The D.C. mayor jumped all over this with a tweet of her own: Yup, Im Muriel Bowser, mayor of Washington D.C., the local politician who finally got thru to the reality star in the White House with the realities ($21.6M) of parades/events/demonstrations in Trump America (sad). Did I mention that Mayor Bowser is running for re-election? Or that Donald Trump is wildly unpopular in the District of Columbia? According to her people, $21.6 million would be the local share of the $92 million total cost. Inflated or not, the expenditure would be a chunk of money that could go to more useful purposes. President Trump wants a parade? Lets give him a parade. How about a marching band of all those veterans of the spy game who are raising such a ruckus over the president spitefully taking away national security clearances of those who dared cross him. Notably absent would be Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating the Russia connection. Hes too busy raining on Trumps parade. Dont look for some of our other luminaries. Omarosa will be a no-show, for sure. Shell be there, but secretly taping conversations. She obviously took pointers from Michael Cohen, who is currently sharing his recordings as he spills his guts to all those involved in probing Donald Trump. I wouldnt look for Stormy Daniels either, not even on a float. Its a shame that she didnt record her alleged encounter with Trump. Well just have to take her word that he was quite boring in bed. We can only guess how much that bothers him, probably as much as the ridicule for his small hands. The problem really is that we have a small person who has got huge toys, like an armed force that numbers more than 2 million. Hes the commander in chief, so they have to humor him. This time, the cost for his folly was so prohibitive that he did something he almost never does: He listened to his advisers, who gently suggested to him that paying $92 million would be bad for his image. Nothing is more important to him than his image, not even a parade. Bob Franken is an Emmy Award-winning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN.How to lose to Trump in one easy stepJohn Brennan may not know it, but he is acting in a drama scripted and produced by Donald J. Trump. As Eli Lake of Bloomberg perceptively observed, President Trump isnt trying to silence Brennan by revoking his security clearance, as the former CIA directors defenders insist, but elevate him as a foil. Trump couldnt hope for a better poster boy for the so-called deep state than a former CIA director who immediately began to sound like a commentator for MSNBC upon leaving government and, indeed, signed up as a commentator for MSNBC. It has been the usual practice of former top intelligence professionals to keep their political opinions, and especially their wild-eyed rants, to themselves. They understand that, having been entrusted with some of the most sensitive powers of the United States government, they should show forbearance and restraint lest they undermine the reputations of their institutions. Brennan has had no such compunction. Granted, hes acted under provocation. Trump has goaded him on Twitter and launched extraordinary broadsides against the work of U.S. intelligence agencies. Trump often sounds like the guy popping off down at the end of the bar, and hes transformed Brennan into the guy down at the other end of the bar. Advantage: Trump. The president always benefits from the fact that his brand depends on violating norms, whereas if his opponents are baited into violating norms in return, they diminish themselves and their cause. In a notorious tweet, Brennan accused the president of nothing short of treason for his craven performance at a joint press conference with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. This was the first time on record that a prominent elected official ever committed treason which usually involves giving away the nations secrets or compromising intelligence assets at a public event extensively covered by the international media. What did Brennan mean by his charge? He apparently doesnt know. Pressed by Rachel Maddow of MSNBC, Brennan explained, incoherently, that I said it was nothing short of treasonous. I didnt mean that he committed treason. Oh. Asked point-blank if he thinks that the president is serving the Russian government, he said that I scratch my head a lot, not the usual standard for alleging that someone committed a capital offense. Brennans conceit has made him the ideal target for Trump, since even some of the former intelligence officials who oppose the revocation of his security clearance are uncomfortable with how he has conducted himself. The presidents adversaries may consider this unfair, but the institutions Trump targets are best-served by not responding in kind. If the president says that the press cant be trusted because its so biased, the press should react by being less biased rather than more. If he says that hes being undone by a deep state conspiracy, former intelligence officials should be more restrained rather than less. Brennan either doesnt understand this dynamic or doesnt care. He has threatened a lawsuit, and Trump has welcomed one. The president is happy for a war with the most unhinged representative of the intelligence community at hand, and John O. Brennan is playing his role flawlessly. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYKing Features p bob FRANKENKing Features

Full Physical Therapy Facility ON THE LINKSErnie Els hits the links to raise money for autismErnie Els has won four major championships in his illustrious career by making a difficult game look easy. He has designed golf courses around the world and his wines are at the top of the list of big time winemakers in the game. A native of South Africa, he will always be known as a Hall of Famer who has played the game everywhere and Now add this to his legacy and put it near the top in importance: The Els Center of Excellence in Jupiter, developed by the Els for Autism Foundation, is a state-of-the-art facility supporting the autism community. Opened in August 2015, the 26-acre center serves everyone from 18-month-old children to adults with a wide range of developmental disabilities. The center is an inspiration, a reason to smile, and a beacon of hope for those impacted by the challenges of autism. Indeed, Ernie and his wife, Liezl, have a 14-year-old son, Ben, who is a freshman in the upper school portion of the facility. Walk inside the Center of Excellence, and one quickly understands why they are among autisms greatest fighters. Years from now, the Big Easy says, people may remember me as a golfer but I would also like to be remembered as somebody who faced the issue of autism close-up and tried to do something about it. The rest of my life, added the 48-year-old Mr. Els, I will be fighting this thing. When your child is first diagnosed, you are afraid and not very hopeful, but with the right support you come to realize the very special gifts that your child can bring to your family and to the community. In one wing is a 305-seat auditorium where plays can be staged, there are staff offices for many of the 35 employees, and rooms to conduct therapy sessions. There is a school on each side, one for 3to 14-year-olds and the other for the 14to 21-year-olds. Each is a nonprofit, tuition-free charter school that can serve up to 150 students. Rickie Fowlers hole-in-one during an Els for Autism pro-amateur two years ago provided $1 million for the foundation, enabling the high school to be ready for the school year of 2016. Golf plays a vital role in the growth of Els for Autism: 1. The Foundations Golf Challenge will have 16 tournaments around the U.S. this year. 2. At the Jupiter location, Mr. Els has designed a nine-hole artificial turf course with three greens. 3. Research continues to show that recreational activities play a big role in the growth and success of people with autism, all the more reason for students to get outside and make some swings. Mr. Els has collaborated with The First Tee and PGA REACH to develop special instruction programs for children and adults on the autism spectrum to learn the game in a way that suits their special needs. If you ask any of the kids, they know which side of the ball to stand on, says Jen Hong, the Golf Challenge development manager. That was pretty impressive to see.

Before 1947, the rare cat who lived indoors might have a box filled with sand, ashes, sawdust or soil, which it then tracked through the house, no doubt to the dismay of fastidious housekeepers. In 1947, businessman Edward Lowe handed a bag of granulated clay to a woman who was complaining that her cat tracked ashes through the house. The clay worked, the woman came back for more and the cat litter industry was born. Now cat lovers might feel as if theyre in a golden age of cat litter. Beyond granulated clay, which remains popular, there is sandlike clumping litter, silica gel crystals, and litter made from recycled newspaper, recycled pine scraps, corn, wheat, walnut shells and grass. For both humans and cats, theres a litter type for every concern: low tracking, low dust, attractive scent, no scent, low odor, low price and environmental friendliness. Some litters even indicate that a cat may have a urinary tract infection or other condition. The anonymous woman who sparked the development of granulated clay litter was concerned about tracking, and that remains an issue for many cat owners. While many litters are marketed as being low-tracking, sometimes a larger litter box can also help to solve the problem. Rosemary George of Falls Church, Virginia, says, I have four cats, so I use cheap clay litter from the grocery store. There are two really large litter pans out on the enclosed sunporch. I scoop them once a day and change them entirely once a week. Once I got huge litter pans, there stopped being so much litter on the floor. Cats like what they like, though, and their preferences can win out over an owners desire to not have litter tracked through the house. Tery McConville of Mount Vernon, Washington, uses a clumping pine litter. It gets everywhere, she says, but its what Princess likes, and it smells nice. Humans and cats with asthma benefit from dust-free or low-dust litter. Dust irritates the respiratory tract and can contribute to coughing, wheezing and difficulty breathing when cats kick it up as they dig in the litter box. Litters made from wheat, recycled paper, wood and silica gel crystals, as well as some clumping litters, tend to be low in dust. Unscented litters are also good choices when a person or pet in the home has asthma. Anna Wright uses a wheat-based litter, saying, Its expensive, but my health and happiness are worth it. It doesnt give me headaches or trigger coughs for me like so many other products do. I think the cats like it for the same reasons. Older cats may have special needs when it comes to litter. When her cat Shadow was in renal failure, Gail Parker of Philadelphia found that replacing litter with newspaper helped prevent him from urinating outside the litter box. She believes the paper was softer on his paws and found that her other cats preferred it, too. Parker puts sections of newspaper in the cats boxes and removes them as soon as they are used. No litter can replace a veterinary visit, but some litters are made to indicate the need to visit the vet. Coated with a safe, nontoxic pH detector, porous silica gel granules change color when acid, alkaline or bilirubin levels change, suggesting possible infection or illness. But whatever you look for in cat litter, what your cat prefers is what counts. Offer an assortment of litters to see which one he likes best, and go with that. Provide an extra-large box, and fill it with three to five inches of litter for your cats digging pleasure. Scoop it once or twice a day, clean the box and change the litter every week or two, and youll have a happy cat.

HEALTHY LIVINGAn ounce of prevention can lead to improved gynecologic healthSeptember is Gynecological Cancer Awareness Month and the perfect time to consider what you can do to help prevent certain gynecological cancers and make sure that you and your loved ones are up to date on potentially lifesaving screenings. As the medical director of Gynecologic Oncology at Jupiter Medical Center, I treat patients diagnosed with gynecological cancer. Thankfully, we have witnessed tremendous strides in medical science with the creation of vaccines that can prevent or dramatically reduce the risk of certain types of cancer. Today, the most effective measure for prevention of cervical cancer is the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine. HPV is the most common sexually transmitted infection. In fact, nearly all sexually active men and women will get one of the many types of the virus during their lifetime. For most people, the body clears the virus on its own before cancer develops. However, those women whose bodies do not naturally clear the virus have a greater risk of developing cervical cancer years after their initial infection. In addition to almost all cervical cancers, HPV is linked to vaginal, vulvar and anal cancers, as well as cancers of the mouth, throat and penis, and vaginal warts. The good news is there are vaccines that protect against HPV-related cancers. These vaccines have proven to be safe and effective for the millions of people who have received them over the past decade. HPV vaccinations are given as a series of two or three injections (depending on the patients age) over a six-month period. The American Cancer Society now recommends that the routine HPV vaccination for girls and boys should start at age 11 or 12. The vaccination series can be administered as early as age nine and up to 26 years old. Parents should talk with their familys pediatrician to make sure their child receives the vaccine and is protected from cancer. HPV vaccines will not treat or protect against cancer from an existing HPV infection. Thats why its important for women who have been vaccinated to continue regularly scheduled Pap smears to screen for cervical cancer. Screenings are important because the vaccine does not protect against every type of HPV that can cause cancer. Pap tests can help find cervical cancer early, and detect pre-cancers, which can be treated to prevent cervical cancer from forming. The American Cancer Society recommends women should undergo cervical cancer screening beginning at age 21, and then proceed with a Pap test every three years until age 29. You do not need a Pap test before age 21, even if you are sexually active, because cervical cancer is very rare at that age. Starting at age 30 and until age 65, women should undergo a Pap test combined with an HPV test every five years. If recent Pap tests have been normal, women over age 65 may no longer need the test. However, if you are over 65 and have risk factors for cervical cancer, including a history of pre-cancerous cells in your cervix, a family history of cervical cancer, are sexually active with new and or/multiple partners, or have a weakened immune system, you should speak with your doctor about your need for screenings. Guidelines for cancer screening are just that, guidelines, and are not applicable to every person. You should consider your lifestyle, family history, and risk factors and then speak with your doctor to determine the screening protocol that is best for you. While you might not need a screening each year, you should discuss your overall gynecological health with either your primary care physician or gynecologist during your annual physical. In addition to receiving the HPV vaccination and undergoing regularly scheduled Pap tests as recommended, you can reduce your risk of cervical cancer by not smoking, limiting your sexual partners, and using condoms when engaging in sexual activity. Finally, if you begin to experience gynecological symptoms that are not normal, including pain, vaginal bleeding or discharge, you should make an appointment with your doctor for an examination. If your condition is found to be a type of gynecological cancer, Jupiter Medical Center is here to provide cutting-edge treatment, support and a customized plan to fight your disease. We also offer free classes and seminars that focus on cancer prevention, early detection, and treatment. At the end of the day, the best way to prevent or reduce your risk is to protect yourself against HPV.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 30-SEPT. 5, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYvate property line and will ask people to leave that area, explained Ed Staros, vice president and managing director for Ritz-Carlton Resorts in Naples. On those days, I need every square inch of beach, Mr. Staros said. Such informal understandings and agreements have worked well enough, in many parts of Florida, to prevent major public disputes. But a conflict between private beachgoers and commissioners in Walton County in 2016 set off new state legislation and a flurry of attention on where the lines in the sand are drawn. There are 825 miles of sandy beaches in the Sunshine State. About 60 percent were estimated by the Department of Environmental Protection to be privately owned in 2005. Now, the DEP says it has no records showing a percentage, or whether it has changed. In part because disputes have been relatively rare and businesses may not want to stir up conflict by drawing hard lines, the technicalities of just when and where someone is trespassing on a beach can be tricky to define. But as Floridas population grows, beaches erode and sea levels creep higher, those valuable square inches of beach will be increasingly contested, said Alyson Craig Flournoy, a University of Florida professor who specializes in property and environmental law. It will only become more challenging and I suspect there will be more conflict, not less, as the beach shrinks over time in different areas, she said. The Walton County kerfuffle and the new related state legislation concerns Floridas customary use doctrine. Though it has not often been used in the Sunshine State, the doctrine allows local governments to declare private beachfront property open to public recreational use if it is generally accepted that the beach in question has nearly always or customarily been used that way. Signed by Gov. Rick Scott, House Bill 631 went into effect on July 1. It requires counties and cities to ask for input from property owners and then prove the case to a judge if they want to declare a privately owned area of a beach available to the public under the customary use doctrine. Before, they would have only had to pass an ordinance with a commission or council vote on its own. The new rule also eradicated Walton Countys ordinance as of July 1, but grandfathered in past customary use ordinances. There are only two others on the books, in Volusia and St. Johns counties. The bill was sponsored by Sen. Kathleen Passidomo, R-Naples, and Rep. Katie Edwards-Walpole, D-Plantation. Sen. Passidomo did not respond to requests for comment. Ms. Passidomo writes in a statement on her website, The new law is a simple process bill that gives local governments the tools they need to provide customary use access to the public on private land adjacent to the public beach. There is nothing in the bill that authorizes anyone to block access to the beach.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 30-SEPT. 5, 2018 NEWS A11law enforcement or mandates anyone to arrest or remove anyone from the beach. There is nothing in the bill that set forth a line of where the public is allowed or not allowed to be. The bill doesnt in any way change the law of this state pertaining to customary use of Floridas beaches that has been in place since the beginning of statehood. Walton Countys declaration of customary use on all of its 26 miles of beaches is now also being challenged by a federal lawsuit brought by a beachfront homeowner there. Even though few beaches in Florida fall under a customary use rule, it has been more broadly applied elsewhere to give the public greater access to what has long been considered a natural resource that should not be privately held. Some states, such as Oregon, Texas and Hawaii, have applied the doctrine broadly to the entire shoreline of the state, wrote the Florida Shore & Beach Preservation Association in an April 4 memo. Public vs. private lines This is how lines between public and private beachfront are typically drawn in Florida: The most common and blanket rule falls under the Public Trust Doctrine. On tracts of private beachfront property, ownership extends down to roughly the wet sand or more precisely the mean high-tide line, the high-tide line averaged over 19 years (though the exact point shifts with the tides). On all 825 miles of beaches in Florida then, the public owns at least the wet sand on seaward for recreational use. That means that at high tide youd technically have to walk through or be standing in the water to stay off private property. Then there are, of course, local, state and federal beachfront parks that are open to the public. Then there are a few exceptions to the wet sand line, one being the customary use doctrine. The new legislation didnt fundamentally change the doctrine, legal experts say, but did create confusion and conflict among public and private landowners and misunderstanding about the effect and purpose of the bill. On one side you have property owners who feel House Bill 631 now gives them new property rights, the ability to build fences (on the beach)..., said David Cruz, an attorney and legislative council for the Florida League of Cities, representing the more than 400 cities in the Sunshine State. On the other side you have the public, who feels that public beach access will now be more restricted and getting onto the beach will be more difficult if not impossible. Both of those statements are incorrect. The bill alters how governments are able to declare customary use, but will have little effect on beachgoers rights, Professor Flournoy argues. The statute (put in place by HB 631) in fact did very little to alter the rights, the common law rights, that the public may have to use privately owned beaches, she said. Those rights, which are based or grounded in the doctrine of customary use were not directly changed by the statute. What it did was change the process that local governments are required to use should they wish to adopt an ordinance codifying, modifying, whatever, customary use rights. But the underlying rights actually have not been changed. I think part of the reaction by property owners has been to claim victory where there was no victory. They are now more aggressively asserting the right to exclude the public although the statute did not give them that right. Even if disputes bubble up occasionally, there have been no recent public spats or official lawsuits reported on beaches in Lee, Charlotte, Collier or Palm Beach counties by county attorneys, spokespeople or hoteliers contacted by Florida Weekly. Those hoteliers said the new law wont change operations or affect access for their guests or the public. There is no impact on how The Breakers Palm Beach runs its beach operations, nor any effect on our guests and members, the resort hotels management wrote in a statement. The Breakers beach and beach club operation remain private. We do not have issues with trespassing, as we have team members to redirect any individuals as necessary. Our beach has always been private west of the tideline, and the public can walk past our property east of the waterline. Another resort hotel, Eau Palm Beach, is popular for its many amenities, exclusivity and privacy, wrote Nick Gold, public relations director. The beach in Manalapan is narrow and therefore does not allow for nonhotel guests to linger. However, there is ample beach area adjacent to the hotel at the Lantana beach for locals and visitors alike to enjoy at their leisure. But the dispute in Walton County could play a role in how much access the public has on Florida beaches in the future. Naples city attorney Robert Pritt argues that House Bill 631 could ultimately have a negative effect on beachgoers because it takes power out of the hands of local governments (and thus the people) to declare customary use for the public on their own, and instead could pit them in an expensive lawsuit against wealthy beachfront property owners. It turns the burden of proof on to the people who may want to be using the dry sandy beach area, he said. So you have all the have nots proving there is customary use against a usually very rich person or group. So its a haves versus a have nots issue. I dont care how they want to portray it. On the other hand, in the past, a customary-use ordinance put in place by a government would have been open to legal attack from private property owners on the back end. With the new legislation, such an ordinance must already be approved by a judge, shielding it from further legal challenges. Another more common exception to the wet sand line in Florida is the Erosion Control Line. If public money has been used to restore a private beach, effectively making it larger, the private property line is permanently moved up on to the dry sand area of the beach to where the high-tide line once was. This is then called the ECL, marking the area that was restored. This is the case with the Ritz in North Naples. An official ECL was determined there in 2009 by the Department of Environmental Protection after people complained about being ejected from the beach in front of the hotel. Naples resident and real estate agent Graham Ginsberg, who has long been an advocate of public access to beaches, said that before the ECL was drawn at the Ritz, he and his children were kicked off the beach by its employees, even though they were playing close to the water. And I said, why? And they said, well, youre on our property and youre trespassing, Mr. Ginsberg said. So we left because I wasnt going to have an argument with my little kids there. With the ECL drawn, the Ritzs private land extends for about 200 yards in width and 70 feet seaward, while the public is left with the 25-30 feet of property closest to the water for sunbathing, building sand castles, reading paperback thrillers and romance novels, et cetera. For his part, Mr. Staros has adopted what he calls his good neighbor policy. He allows anyone to use the entire area of the beach including the Ritzs portion most of the year, except during those 35 or so especially busy days, typically major holidays when all of the 450 guest rooms are full, often with multiple guests. I want everybody to love the Ritz, he said. I want them to come over here and spend their money. I want them to buy hamburgers here. I want them to have their weddings and Bat Mitzvahs here.Effects of the new rule Some said the new bill will have little effect on public or private access to beaches or that its a nonissue in their county or city. This was not a big issue for Collier County, said county attorney Jeffrey A. Klatzkow. He argues that its already clear in Collier which beaches are public and which are private, and that hotels including the Ritz already share the beach harmoniously with the public. Weve been sharing the beach with the Ritz for many, many years, he said. The Ritz has just the same rights to that beach as anybody else. In fact, theyre paying an awful lot of the money to replenish the beach when you come right down to it. Money to replenish beaches comes from hotel bed taxes paid by guests, although that money is considered public funds, and is also used to promote tourism. Mr. Klatzkow adds that he believes parking will be the greatest issue facing public access to beaches in the future. It might take the county acquiring property and demolishing it and creating parking garages, he said. This is many years down the road but thats where your bottleneck is. Putting in beach shuttles might help. Public versus private beach access is a nonissue on Marco Island simply because the beaches are so wide, said city clerk Laura Litzan. So nowhere on Marcos shoreline are there conflicts with private upland property owners, she said. The upland property owners have tons of space. The waters edge where most people want to walk or be around is far away from the upland property owners. This is one of the problems we dont have.Public beach access Wet beach Dry beach MHTL: Mean high tide line MLTL: Mean low tide lineMHTL MLTLPrivate Public Open Water M M M M M M M M M M M M M M M M M DuneThe public has a right of access along the beaches and shorelines of Florida situated below the mean high tide line, as stated in Article X, Section 11 of the Florida Constitution.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 30-SEPT. 5, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com OCTOBER 21How did you first get into business?I spent five years practicing corporate securities law for a major Philadelphia firm. I wanted to do something more creative that had a greater impact on people. I left law in the early 1980s to found one of the nations first Assisted Living communities. This new alternative was a rebellion against the long entrenched medical/ institutional model of care for the elderly. It was wildly successful and families flocked to us. I spent about 15 years refining the concept, developing other communities and advocating around the country for this model. When Wall Street entered the industry in the late 1990s and it became more corporatized, I sold my facilities and retired to Boca Raton. However, when my parents reached their mid80s and required assistance, they wanted no part of a nursing home or assisted living facility. They wanted to stay in their home. Thats the reason I started Visiting Angels in Palm Beach Gardens. I thought, What could be less institutional than home care? What are some recent trends youve seen in your industry?Were seeing a proliferation of web based companies that purport to find care workers for customers, often skirting the Florida regulations. But they dont do the background checking, face to face interviewing and quality assurance that local companies can provide. Were also seeing some of the hospital systems create their own home care companies to vertically integrate their operations. This is a positive trend and can lead to improved accountability for outcomes if it is done right. What lessons did you learn from the great recession?Dont do anything rash. These things are cyclical.What is your vision for the future of your business?I see us continuing to refine our ability to adapt to the unique needs and preferences of each client. As philosophies of senior care evolve, I predict that nursing homes will nearly disappear as venues for extended care, and many more services and activities will be brought into the home to allow seniors to age in place in a familiar residential environment. Better integration and coordination of home care with the clients other health care providers will help. We hope to be part of that trend. What new products or services will you introduce in the next year?We will be focusing more on education for caregivers as well as for families. Understanding the impact of the limitations that come with advanced age is key to providing excellent service. This is especially true for helping people with Alzheimers Disease, Parkinsons and similar conditions. Specialized teams to target specific conditions is one new approach. We also hope to introduce new technologies as an option now that they have become more refined. For example, we are in discussions with a company to provide non-intrusive monitoring systems that track patterns of movement in the home and then detect departures from the pattern to generate safety alerts. Weve also developed a niche practice in helping people of all ages with recovery after surgery. What are some of the challenges you face this year?Without a doubt the biggest new challenge for all home care companies is adjusting to the radical new labor law changes adopted by the Department of Labor. Forty years of established law has been virtually erased by an administrative decree through the elimination of the Companionship exemption. Overtime regulations make it more challenging for older adults to have continuity and consistency of caregivers. This is especially hard on people with dementia who do much better when a single, familiar caregiver can be with them most of the time.What are your thoughts on the South Florida economy?For businesses that serve the elderly, there will be steady growth in the near term. Deteriorating weather patterns in the Northeast and Midwest are leading seniors to stay longer in Florida or give up their northern homes in favor of a Florida residence. When the cohort of Boomers (born 1946 to 1964) hit their eighties and begin to require assistance, there will be an overwhelming explosion in the senior care economy in South Florida. Thats less than a decade off, and we need to start planning now to be able to meet the need. What do you look for in recruiting talent?Character, Compassion and Passion are the big three for me. A candidate can have all the technical skill and experience possible, but if they are missing any of those three fundamental qualities, I have no interest. Figuring out who really has those qualities is not easy. Whats the most important business lesson youve learned?Never sacrifice your core ethical principles for profit. Always put your clients welfare above your financial interest. In the long run, that will bring you financial success. This is just a corollary of Aristotles theory of Virtue.What do you enjoy most about the job? People. And the opportunity to be creative. What would people be surprised to know about you?When I was a kid, I got into lots of trouble for doing flips off of every elevated surface I could find. I ended up lettering in Gymnastics in college. I did my last back flip at age 50 and Im still temptedWhat could be less institutional than home care?Irving P.

Family foundations, individuals and corporations could no longer support those who were doing really important work. Donors became more laser focused with their gifts and nonprofits became even more transparent. Each year, this becomes more and more important in a good way. Quantum House has always been committed to making sure that the minute a supporter crosses the threshold, they know exactly where their gift and their time are having an impact to care for the families that we serve. Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business? Staying true to our mission, integrity and outstanding stewardship are the three practices that have been absolutely critical to our success. Each day we welcome children and families who are facing some of their most difficult days. We have cared for thousands of families in need over the past 15 years and each guest has been given much more than just lodging. They receive a huge embrace from the community and the peace of mind that they will get through a terrible time with support and care.What are things youd like to change about your industry now? Your organization or business?I would love to change the perception that a nonprofit is not a real business. When businesses are brought to the table to discuss important economic and impact issues, seldom will you see a representative from the nonprofit world as a part of that group. The reality is that we have budgets just like any business with the normal anticipated expenses of payroll, utilities, insurance, supplies and more. Within the context of your current marketing/ promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors?Many folks dont know about hospital hospitality houses until they need one. And, as the only house like this between Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, we continue to make certain that anyone who needs a place to stay to be nearby while their child receives care, has the opportunity to do so. Creative marketing and strategies to get our message to the community and pediatric medical services are a top priority. What will you base your success on for 2018? Success in 2017 is operating with 30 guest suites providing lodging and love to hundreds more families, and providing opportunities for the community to join in on our journey by preparing meals, organizing arts and crafts, playing golf, reading stories, sharing their pets and all of their talents with the families who call Quantum House home. Because we are not exclusive to any illness or injury, we can welcome so many. How is social media impacting your industry or business this year? Whats in store for 2018?While I understand and appreciate the importance of social media, I just dont think you can beat the value of relationships. I hope that being able to pick up the phone or meeting for coffee will never be replaced. Social media allows Quantum House to share the message that the families we care for are just like you. Each of us has a child in our lives, a son or daughter, niece or nephew, a child of a friend, so each of us might need a place like Quantum House. What do you truly love about working here in Palm Beach County? For many, living in Palm Beach County is the prize for having lived a good life. We are the fortunate ones who are already here. Also, this is a very generous community. Folks here know that giving back and participating in making this a better place to live is just part of the deal. How do you find inspiration in todays business climate? My inspiration is the families who stay with us at Quantum House. These folks and their precious children are going through some pretty dark days. Seeing their challenges, their strength, their smiles and their tears can put everything into perspective.

SANDFrom page 11Naples resident Mr. Ginsberg argued that even if there are no current public conflicts, some beaches that have been renourished, including Hideaway on Marco, do not have sufficient public access points, effectively blocking their use. The Ritz is located next to an official public access point and parking garage for Vanderbilt Beach, making it a crosssection of public and private activity. But areas like Hideaway Beach, or long stretches of beach choked by condos or private homes with few public access points make it difficult or unlikely they will be used or even recognized by the public. The Lee County Attorneys Office declined an interview on the new rule, but deputy attorney Michael Jacob responded in an email asking how the new state rule will impact local beaches: The law doesnt preclude the publics access to a particular beach or portion thereof. It merely requires the county meet certain legal requirements to establish the publics rights to use private property. The ability to meet those legal requirements is dependent upon any number of factors that are to be analyzed on a case by case basis.The Charlotte County attorney has fielded multiple inquiries about the new state rule, said spokesman Brian Gleason. Mr. Gleason added that there has been no discussion on the County Commission on the issue and that an Erosion Control Line was already estab lished for Char lottes relatively small portion of beachfront.Charlotte County has taken no effort to establish customary use for any private beaches and we dont have any intent to, he said. Its not really an issue in Charlotte County. In Palm Beach County, Mayor Melissa McKinlay asked the County Attorneys Office to investigate the meaning of the new state rule. Shes hearing that some resort owners believe they have the authority now to build fences on their beachfront properties, wrote county attorney Denise Marie Nieman in an email on July 27. Apparently its very controversial (Google exploded with articles when I inquired:-). Chief assistant county attorney Howard J. Falcon III said he is not aware of any conflicts between private beachfront owners and the county or public about beach access right now. In an email to Ms. Nieman, Mr. Falcon described the meaning of the new bill (now under Florida statute 163.035) and pointed out that the Florida Supreme Court recognized the publics potential to acquire the right to public use of private land under customary use in City of Daytona Beach v. Tona-Rama (1974). In that case the court said customary use could be established, If the recreational use of the sandy area adjacent to the mean high tide has been ancient, reasonable, without interruption and free from dispute, such use as a matter of custom should not be interfered with by the owner. Mr. Falcon wrote in his opinion, a judge would ultimately have been needed to establish customary use rights even before the bill. And he believes that a judge would find Walton Countys now eradicated ordinance unlawful. The bottom line is the bill/statute does not significantly change existing law regarding the customary use doctrine and does not significantly change beach access and ownership rights, he wrote, although it has certainly created a great deal of confusion and concern throughout the state. In response to widespread confusion about the bill with some saying it was intended to restrict beach access, Gov. Rick Scott on July 12 issued an executive order intended to make clear that was not the case. The order doesnt stop action on the new bill but it did establish a temporary halt or moratorium on executive state agencies adopting any rule or restriction to inhibit the publics access to Florida beaches, unless there is a clear risk to public safety. It urges local governments not to restrict beach access and for State Attorneys to protect beach access rights already in place. The order also directed the Department of Environmental Protection to be an advocate for public beach access and established a page on the DEP website where people can complain if they believe their beach access rights have been infringed upon. The DEP didnt respond to a request to provide information on any recent complaints. No Florida cities had customary use ordinances on the books at the time the bill was passed. The League of Cities did not oppose House Bill 631, Mr. Cruz said, in part because of a lack of interest at the time. But in response to the new bill, some local governments such as Naples and Collier County also quickly passed their own ordinances prior to July 1 that they say will protect their right to use customary use as an affirmative defense in court just in case it should come up (and so far it has not). House Bill 631 says it does not deprive a governmental entity from raising customary use as an affirmative defense in any proceeding challenging an ordinance or rule adopted before July 1, 2018. We may be able to use that defensively in a lawsuit rather than bring it offensively, said Naples city attorney Mr. Pritt. The Naples ordinance could help the city control access to beaches based on its own individual needs, said Naples city councilor Michelle McLeod. One size does not fit all here in the state of Florida, she said. Every city is unique, and the state should not be taking away our jurisdiction from governing the unique residents (of) our town. It turns the burden of proof on to the people who may want to be using the dry sandy beach area.... So you have all the have nots proving there is customary use against a usually very rich person or group. So its a haves versus a have nots issue. I dont care how they want to portray it.

The only problem is if you add an extra zero. Then that is what goes out (from yours to the other account.) Dr. Sandra Kauanui, director of FGCUs Institute of EntrepreneurshipCARTWRIGHT MONEY & INVESTINGAim for Target if youre looking for a strong retailer stockAbout this time last year, many Wall Street analysts declared that traditional retailers were dead and that Amazon would knock every other brick-and-mortar store out of business until it was the only one left standing. A year later, it turns out that the analysts thesis was half right. Many retailers, such as Toys-R-Us, Brookstone, Bon-Ton and Nine West, have filed for bankruptcy and others like JCPenney and Sears are on life support. However, there are a number of traditional retailers that are experiencing a resurgence in foot traffic, revenue and stock price. One of these standout companies is Target, which released gangbuster earnings last week. How did Target defy expectations and thrive in todays Amazon-dominated retail world? Target is the second largest retail store in the U.S. with over 1,800 locations. The company employs almost 350,000 people and has annual sales of $71 billion. However, the company hit hard times in 2016 and 2017 on multiple fronts. First, many of the companys stores were dated and the company faced supply chain issues keeping popular items on its shelves. Second, the company had major issues ramping up its grocery business, which is a key driver in increasing foot traffic. And most significantly, the company was seen as not having a coherent strategy to take on larger rival Walmart or Amazon. Many analysts and investors believed that Target was beyond saving and would continue to decline. However, management believed that they could turn around the giant retailer. CEO Brian Cornell spent aggressively to improve its online and e-commerce presence. The company also developed and rolled out new smaller stores in major metropolitan areas to attract younger customers. In addition, Target focused its energies on creating new and innovative in-house brands that attracted a wide range of new fashion-conscious customers. And finally, the company spent billions remodeling over 1,000 stores with hundreds more slated to be remodeled this year. All of these initiatives paid off for Target in the latest quarter. Internet sales were up a massive 40 percent. Within physical stores, foot traffic and sales grew over 6 percent, the largest growth rates seen in over 13 years. w ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com SEE INVESTING, A15

To the uninitiated they are techies taking advantage of relatively new technology two decades old, beginning with the advent of PayPal in 1998. But digital wallets, as they call them, have now evolved to let individuals transfer relatively small amounts of money from one to another via cellphone, or with any almost effortless internet transaction that essentially ends the need for cash. They could make society cashless if the trend continues, the experts say. Or not. These cash apps theyre so easy you type in a number and hit send. The only problem is if you add an extra zero. Then that is what goes out (from yours to the other account), says Professor Sandra Kauanui, director of FGCUs Institute of Entrepreneurship. Suddenly youre not sending $50, youre sending $500, gone in an instant. Not only that, says Professor Arseneau, making society cashless could mean threatening a way of life for many small, service-based companies that have relied on cash transactions and managed to avoid paying taxes on some of them for many years. There is this world of small transactions for service-based businesses in the U.S. thats carried on through cash for decades or more services like walking the dog, or putting on shutters or mowing lawns or whatever and now were moving into an area where these transactions could leave a digital trace, he explains. Some see it as a downside, adds Professor Kauanui. If the IRS gets ahold of that theres unreported income theyve never been able to track, that could now be far more traceable. Which doesnt phase people like Mr. Cartwright. For free (or as low as 25 to 50 cents with some transactions in some apps, or 3 percent if a user is linked to a credit card and not a debit card), his daughter can sit in a restaurant in Washington, D.C., with student friends, put the bill for a group of 10 or 15 on her credit card, and have each person use the app to transfer his or her share of the bill from their accounts to hers, on the spot, he says. Shell say, why dont you other 14 people Venmo me $10? Its like a debit card in the cloud. To set it up, you log in online, you register your bank account, and you authorize it to either put money in or take money out, he explains. At Venmo, a subsidiary of PayPal whose company name has become a verb to venmo money you can make and share payments with family or friends, according to company literature on line. Or you can connect with people split dinner, share a birthday gift or just say hello. You can also make purchases and pay in mobile apps, and you can move money from Venmo to your bank account. Finally, when you send money using our Venmo balance, bank account, debit card or prepaid card, we waive fees so its free, the advertisements proclaim. Our standard 3 percent fee applies to credit cards. Receiving money and making purchases in other apps is always free. All of this is called the digital wallet. There are competitors, of course: Apple Pay Cash, allowing you to send and receive funds using the Messages app on your iPhone; or Square, a Jack Dorsey enterprise (Mr. Dorsey founded Twitter), or even Affirm. A new company, Affirm appears to be essentially an alternative to a credit card, explains Professor Arseneau. They float you money at a discharger rate. I use the float, they charge interest, and they make money on that. Some business models will rely on huge numbers of users 10 million or 100 million who might pay a quarter for a transaction and others may aim to link personal use and the enterprise side of transactions, taking unstated advantage of consumers and data. They might get consumers using the personal model first, and use that account, data from that account, to get to the enterprise side. So I download the cash app, I get used to the money going where it needs to be, then in my business life I recommend using the company Square, for example because there are perks. Once people have established a significant digital footprint in their transactions and most transactions are under $100, says Professor Arseneau now they have your name, your email and other personal information. When you hit 100 transactions or so, They may send you an email. Use Square. So they may leverage that free consumer side to build up the enterprise side. One of the fears held by many consumers is the loss of privacy; another is the threat of hacking and stealing. As for hacking, these digital wallet companies are good at security but nothing is perfectly secure, experts always acknowledge. Big banks or companies like Equifax may be more vulnerable than business models that dont have data stored in once place but work computer-to-computer, says Professor Arseneau. A call to Suncoast Credit Unions Tampa headquarters asking if the bank had official concerns about the use of digital wallets by its customers, or if it planned to offer such a service itself, was not returned. With data collection, companies offering free or nearly free apps, says Professor Kauanui, always work on the basis of one reality: When something is free, youre the product, basically. The customer is the product. Thats an issue. They get your information, your shopping and living habits, and thats worth money, eventually. Venmo, for example, probably works this way, but thats the nature of the beast these days, for Mr. Cartwright. When it comes to privacy and the collection of information about you, he says, the horse is out of the barn on that. Anybody who is worried about a company collecting data on them, I would ask them a simple question: Do you have an Alexa in your house? That sits there 24 hours a day and monitors your conversation. Its listening to you all day, all night, every day of every week and month. Can you imagine someone would hack into your internet and use that? Personal privacy is an important concept, he concludes, but digital wallets represent the milder forms of invasion, and their uses are many. They give you speed, the communication of one to many, and payment of many to one. DIGITALFrom page 14INVESTINGFrom page 14 Advice for those with digital wallets: My advice: First off, limit the amount you use. There is no reason to have a large amount of money in those accounts. Theyre not insured by the FDIC. So, use them in small amounts. And, I know few do this, but audit yourself. Keep a ledger of what youre spending and why. As a society were turning away from balancing our checkbooks to this: If theres money in my account I spend it. There are applications for keeping track of your money. Do it manually or pair (the digital wallet) with one of these. Eric Arseneau, professor and associate director of the Institute of Entrepreneurship, Florida Gulf Coast University ARSENEAU Overall revenue and profits were much higher than both the year before and higher than analyst expectations. The CEO stated, We are seeing a great consumer response ... unprecedented traffic. As we go back and look, weve never seen traffic like this Ive been doing this a long time and this is the healthiest environment I have ever seen. The markets have rewarded Target shareholders with shares up more than 50 percent in the last 12 months. But I believe that the retailers good fortunes will continue. The company is still cheap from a Price/Earnings perspective at 18 compared to its closest peer, Walmart, at 32 and Amazon at 173. Target pays a nice dividend of around 3 percent, which I believe will increase as the company continues to grow its profits. From a competitive perspective, Target should be able to win over Toys-R-Us customers due to its focus on kids clothing and toys. Target also recently purchased Shipt, which it hopes will enable the retailer to provide same-day deliveries to some of its customers. It is also rolling out curbside pickup for online orders at many of its locations. Targets grocery products are improving and as it completes its store modernization efforts, its customers are shopping more often and purchasing more per trip. Therefore, even after its recent run, I still believe Target stock is a good investment which should continue to reward investors.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 30-SEPT. 5, 2018 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE A17 EARL ON CARSDealing with the dealer fee: Earl Stewarts Users GuideHopefully by now, all but my newest readers know about the infamous dealer fee. Its a hidden price increase on the car you purchase disguised to look like a federal, state or local tax or fee. Its 100 percent profit to the dealer. Dealer fee is the generic name for this disguised profit, but it goes by many names such as doc fee, dealer prep fee, services fee, administrative fee, electronic filing fee, e-filing fee, tag agency fee, pre-delivery fee, etc. The names are only limited by car dealers imaginations. Almost all car dealers in Florida charge a dealer fee. The dealer fees range from around $600 to as high as $2,000-plus! This is the Florida law that is supposed to regulate the dealer fee: The advertised price must include all fees or charges that the customer must pay excluding state and local taxes. The law also requires that the dealer fee must be disclosed to the buyer as follows: This charge represents costs and profits to the dealer for items such as inspecting, cleaning, and adjusting vehicles and preparing documents related to the sale. This law is very weak and virtually never enforced. When enforced, it isnt enforced by the letter of the law; it is done to accommodate the car dealers. The law is weak because it requires only that the dealer fee be included in the advertised price. The word advertised is narr owly int erpreted to mean one specific car shown in an online, Facebook, TV, radio or print ad. But what about getting a price on the phone, online or from the salesman? You dont find out about the dealer fee until youre in the business office signing a bunch of papers. The dealers get around advertisements very easily by including a number in the fine print. This number is their stock number that designates one specific car. When you respond to the ad, this car is no longer available (sales people usually are not paid a commission for selling the ad car. The advertisement might say many more identical cars are available. Its true that identical cars are available for sale, but they are not available for sale at the sale price because they are not the advertised stock number car. If you buy one of those exact same cars you will pay from $700 to $2,000 more. The reason Im told that the law is rarely enforced is that the Florida Attorney Generals office is understaffed and too busy enforcing other Florida laws. Im also told that Florida car buyers dont file very many complaints against car dealers for violating the dealer fee law. I dont believe that there can be too many other infractions of the law that take more money annually from consumers than dealer fees take from car buyers. Just one car dealer selling 1,000 cars a year and charging a $1,000 dealer fee is taking a $1 million annually from car buyers. Most car dealers in South Florida sell a lot more than 1,000 cars annually and many charge more than a $1,000 dealer fee. I believe that the reason more complaints arent filed on the dealer fee is because most car buyers dont know that they are being duped. They either dont notice the fee or assume its an official federal or state fee. Dealers often tell their customers that all dealers charge it and that its required by law.The Attorney General also accommodates the dealers by not interpreting the law the way it was intended. For example, the law says that the dealer fee must be included in the advertised price. The Florida Senate has ruled that the law requires that the fee be included rather than specifically delineated. But the Attorney General allows car dealers to advertise car prices without including their dealer fee in the price if they mention their dealer fee in the fine print. They also allow car dealers to simply state in the fine print that they have a Dealer Fee but not even mention the amount. To me they are simply allowing the car dealers to break the law. The Florida Auto Dealers Association is the powerful lobbying arm for Florida car dealers. Its almost impossible for a Florida Attorney General to be elected without the support of car dealers and the FADA.Last, the required disclosure of the dealer fee on the vehicle buyers order or invoice is confusing, misleading, and incorrect: This charge represents costs and profits to the dealer for items such as inspecting, cleaning and adjusting vehicles and preparing documents related to the sale. It should not say costs because any cost that you pass along to the customer in the price of a product is pure profit. A dealer can pass along his utility bills, sales commissions and advertising if he wants to and call it a dealer fee. It should not say inspecting, cleaning and adjusting vehicles because all car dealers are reimbursed by the manufacturer for inspecting, cleaning and adjusting vehicles. So, what should you do when you are confronted by a car dealer with the dealer fee? Besides LEAVE, here are some suggestions that may help you: 1. Make it clear from the very beginning that all prices you discuss must be out-the-door prices. This way you dont care if the dealer fee is added up front because you will shop and compare their bottom line price with at least three competing car dealers. Ideally you should require that they include tax and tag in that price. If you dont they might try to slip in something they call the electronic filing fee or e filing fee and trick you into believing its part of the license tag and registration. 2. The dealer often will tell you that all car dealers charge dealer fees and that they are required by law to add the dealer fee on every car they sell. Simply tell them that you know this is not true and you can cite me and other car dealers like CarMax who do not charge a dealer fee. Print out a copy of this article, show it to them, and tell them that you know that there is no law that says he must charge you a dealer fee.3. As long as you and the dealer understand that the out-the-door price is the price you will shop and compare with his competition, you dont need to be concerned whether there is a dealer fee showing on the vehicle buyers order. To be competitive, the dealer can simply reduce the price by the amount of his dealer fee and the bottom line is what you are comparing.4. Be aware that dealers usually do not pay their sales people a commission on the amount of their dealer fee. In fact, dealers often misinform their sales people just like they do their customers. The salesman who tells you that the all dealers charge dealer fees and that the law requires everyone pay a dealer fee may believe it. Sales people who understand that the dealer fee is simply profit to the dealer will be resentful of not being paid their 25 percent commission on it. A $1,000 dealer fee costs the salesman $250 in commission.5. When you respond to an advertisement at a specific price for a specific model car, object when the dealer adds the dealer fee. Unfortunately, the law allows him the loophole of claiming that the ad car is a different stock number, but you might be able to shame him into taking off the dealer fee. If you raise a big enough stink, the dealer would be smart to take off the dealer fee than claim that technicality, especially if you were to advise the local TV station or newspaper. 6. www.TrueCar.com is the one third party buying source that requires its certified dealers to give you a final price excluding only GOVERNMENT fees sales tax and license plate/registration. This prohibits the dealer from adding dealer fees and dealer-installed accessories. Consumer Reports, American Express, USAA, GEICO and other bluechip companies use TrueCar. I hope that these suggestions help you and I hope that you will file a complaint with the Florida Attorney General, Pam Bondi. If enough consumers (who are also voters) let our elected officials know how they feel about the dealer fee, it will bring positive results. You can download a complaint form for the Florida Attorney Generals Office at www.FloridaCarDealerComplaints.com. BEHIND THE WHEELYou, too, can own a 007 Aston Martin Its hard to think of Aston Martin without imagining Sean Connery leaning up against a bright sliver DB5. This is one of the most enduring automotive icons, and now its going to be made available to a very select few. Aston Martin has announced it will build 25 examples of the DB5 coupe, complete with 007-style gadgets. Continuation cars are not new to the industry. After all, it feels like the Shelby Cobra never left production, and Astons rivals at Jaguar recently began neo-classic D-type and E-type racers. What makes the DB5 continuation cars so special is the pedigree that comes with them. These 007 Astons are built with the blessing of EON Productions, the company that produced all of the James Bond films. Plus, while the hidden machine guns likely wont fire real bullets, the gadgetry will be developed by Chris Corbould. He has been involved in the special effects of 14 James Bond films, including Goldeneye, Tomorrow Never Dies, Casino Royale, Skyfall and Spectre all of which featured the famous silver DB5. For true enthusiasts, the most important aspect of these cars is where they will be built. Aston Martin has a factory dedicated to special projects at its modern home in Gaydon, England. However, the continuation car will be produced about 40 miles away at the Newport Pagnell. This is the site of the Aston Martin Works official restoration facility and the factory where the original DB5s were built by hand. These new classic coupes will be built in the same tradition as the original. That will likely mean a 4.0-liter DOHC straightsix motor, leather-clad interior, and alloy panels formed over a tubular steel skeleton. Aston Martin did mention a few sympathetic modifications to the car seen in Goldfinger. That might include 007s nifty map-based tracking system in the radio replaced by a regular GPS system that has emerged during more than a halfcentury of progress. There are 25 DB5s up for grabs; deliveries are set to begin in 2020. Not coincidently, this is also about the time for the 25th James Bond film to premiere. In fact, the real production number will be 28, with one car going to a charity auction and both Aston Martin and EON Productions retaining an example. This limited availability of the movie cars is a nice nod to one of the most exclusive rides around. The original gadget-filled DB5 (actually a DB5 prototype) disappeared from the Boca Raton Airport in 1997 and hasnt been seen since. A second car used for the films beauty photos survives today. It was sold for $4.6 million in 2010. The new continuation cars are slightly more affordable, but still priced for the very select few. Each will go for ,750,000 (currently about $3.5 million). Theres also a catch that goes beyond the exclusive price. None of these examples will be road legal.Aston Martin is building examples that are exceptionally faithful to the original, and that go well beyond revolving license plates. Cars assembled to 1960s standards but with 2020 build dates will not meet regulations in most developed countries. Aston Martin could get around this by purchasing original DB5 chassis, stripping them, and completely rebuilding the coupes. Thankfully, they have enough reverence for their own history to not repurpose classic beauty for the sake of new profit.These new James Bond DB5s can be enjoyed on tracks and private roads. Those who can afford the privilege also likely have the funds to locate a closed circuit for secret agent time. Of course, at this level of price and prestige, some will really see the 2020 delivery date as a head start to building a worthy sitting room around rolling silver-screen art. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com earlSTEWARTearls@estoyota.com561-358-1474

Harry Canary, Mackerel Jordan, Tim Tebull, Sealrena Williams and Tiger Woodschuck will bounce their way around the bases between innings, performing acrobatic stunts, comedy routines and silly tricks that aim to amuse. Theyre a riot, said Mike Bauer, the stadiums general manager. Theyre hilarious. Other animalistic likenesses in the ZOOperstars crew include Alex Frogriguez, Whale Gretzky, LeBronco James and Peyton Manatee, as well as Jeff Gordog and Snail Earnhardt Jr. We chose the ones with Florida connections, Mr. Bauer said. Itll be a great show. Michael Jordan built an 11-bedroom mansion in The Bears Club. Tim Tebow led the University of Florida Gators to two national championships.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 30-SEPT. 5, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY COLLECTORS CORNER scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org When I was around 18 months old, my parents decided that my mother should return to the University of Florida to complete her education degree. My dad, who had dropped out of college shortly before I was born, went to work for a Belle Glade heavy equipment company, operating the draglines and cranes that built many of the condos you now see along A1A in Palm Beach. And I lived with my maternal grandparents in Fort Myers. Grandma, who was around 50, reveled in the job I think my grandfather did, too, if only because he got to tease me. Id spend my days digging in the driveway, riding a trike in their fencedoff carport and exploring their house. It had been a long time since thered been a babe in the Bolender household, and there was much to see. The dining room buffet held the Lenox china off limits to me, especially on those terrazzo floors. And the hall closet? The shelves were loaded with boxes. I asked Grandma what was in them. Linens, she replied. To this day, Im sure I heard lemons. She took one box down and revealed a set of damask napkins and a tablecloth the boxes were labeled according to size: damask 3 yards and banquet 4 yards. Everything was ironed crisp. At the time, I was so disappointed. It was only later that I learned to appreciate the feel of fine Irish linen damask shiny, smooth, heavy and silky with all manner of designs that reminded one of illustrations from the Book of Kells. I love the sound a large tablecloth makes as it flaps in the breeze on a clothesline thats the best way to dry linens. Take them down and they smell of the sun. Grandma always ironed her tablecloths and napkins damp, pressing the top first, then flipping them and ironing the backs to make the designs stand out. I think of Grandma when I iron. Her heavy wooden ironing board is just the right height for smoothing everything from hand towels to tablecloths. And, according to the penciled-in price on the bottom, it only cost $1.29 when she bought it around 1940. Id say she got her moneys worth. But the present can teach the past a lesson my Rowenta steam iron eliminates the need for dampening linens, smoothing them to crisp perfection. Unlike Grandma, Ill skip ironing the print tablecloths and napkins I use for everyday theyre casual, right? And as for those damask tablecloths? A half-century after I conducted my initial investigation at my grandparents house, theyre still beautiful, with nary a lemon in sight. Bought: A v o w Treasures Resale Shop, 3601 Tamiami Trail N., Suite 1, Naples; 239-649-0201. Paid: $4 The Skinny: The drawers at my house are bursting with tablecloths and napkins of all sizes, styles and colors, so I really didnt need these. Then my friend Richmond pointed out that this set of fine linen napkins cost only a little more than good quality disposable napkins, so I bought. They date from the 1940s or s and probably were made in Ireland. The daintily embroidered and appliqued grape motif is classic, and it reminds me to raise a glass to good design.

B8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 30-SEPT. 5, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYMr. Reynolds was considering a career in law enforcement when his English teacher at Palm Beach Junior College, Watson B. Duncan, encouraged him to give theater a try. Next thing you know, he was on his way to the Hyde Park Playhouse as the recipient of the Florida State Drama Award. Since then, hes performed on Broadway, appeared on all kinds of TV shows and ascended to the headiest realms of movie stardom, earning an Emmy, Golden Globe and Peoples Choice Award as well as Oscar nomination along the way. And now the 82-year-old Hollywood icon and Jupiter resident has a schedule that might make actors half his age jealous. Im really proud of the work Im doing, Mr. Reynolds says. You have to be given the parts before you can take the chances. Im being given the parts now. Last fall he was in Toronto for the filming of Defining Moments, in which he plays the patriarch of a large, messy family. He stepped into the role of a wealthy art dealer for the romantic comedy Miami Love Affair. He also appears in Shadow Fighter, a story about a homeless ex-boxer, which was released in March. Then theres his performance in The Last Movie Star, which generated considerable buzz on the festival scene this year. According to Pete Travers of Rolling Stone, Mr. Reynolds portrayal of aging movie star Vic Edwards in the film serves as a reminder of how great an actor he can be. In the movie, which was filmed in Nashville and Knoxville over a five-week period in 2016, Mr. Reynolds unflinchingly explores the reality of faded glory and the life that remains to be lived when the spotlight has moved on, as it always does. For the first time I got to show vulnerability, Mr. Reynolds says. It was a good exercise for me as an actor. He really is a craftsman at the peak of his ability, says Todd Vittum, executive director of the Burt Reynolds Institute of Film & Theatre (BRIFT), a nonprofit that provides educational opportunities for actors, writers and filmmakers. If you work on a film set, I dont care who you are or where you are, he is the guy who knows more about filmmaking acting, production, staging than anyone else on the set. Mr. Reynolds may not be speeding along lifes highway in a black Trans Am any longer, but he still has the signature mustache, the slow smile and that gleam in his eye that really makes you wonder what hes thinking. And hes still having fun making movies. During the filming of The Last Movie Star, he struck up a friendship with Chevy Chase, who plays his best friend in the film. A project that would pair the two up again is in the works. Mr. Reynolds is also scheduled to appear in an upcoming film titled The French Cowboy. But first, when taping begins on the new Quentin Tarantino film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Mr. Reynolds will be heading to L.A. to join a cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie, among others. Directors hes met for drinks recently and those hes bumped into on his travels have congratulated him on branching out. Im not branching out, he says. Im getting better parts. It doesnt matter how many times people say its harder to master comedy than drama. You get no credit for it, Mr. Reynolds says. Especially when you make it look easy, as Mr. Reynolds routinely did. Hes doing parts now that he always wanted to do, Mr. Vittum says. Its time, Mr. Reynolds says. I cant be doing this for 10 more years. There is one role Mr. Reynolds is happy to reprise that of teacher. When hes not in front of the camera, he can often be found working with the students in his master acting class, held at BRIFTs new location in North Palm Beach. As a teacher I feel like Im really at my best, he says. His students are a varied lot. Some are working actors, others talented amateurs. Youll find both young hopefuls and more seasoned performers, those who have dusted off their dreams of an acting career, hanging on his every word as he critiques the scenes they have prepared. I always thought Id be a coach, Mr. Reynolds says. He just thought hed be prowling the sidelines with a whistle around his neck instead of sitting in front of a stage. As it turns out, even accomplished, award-winning movie stars have dreams. If given the chance to coach a high school team for even one game, Mr. Reynolds says, Id do it in a heartbeat. band.

The event takes place from 3 to 6 p.m. Sept. 15 at the memorial site, 924 25th St., West Palm Beach. West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio will lay a wreath at the site to honor the victims, followed by a community gathering with music and beverages. The 1928 hurricane made landfall in Palm Beach County on Sept. 16, 1928, and at least 2,500 people died, most of them black migrant workers living around the southern edge of Lake Okeechobee. The burial site in West Palm Beach recognizes the African-American victims of the storm who were laid in a mass gravesite at 25th Street and Tamarind Avenue, the final resting place for 674 victims.

September 2 Info Call: PUZZLESGRAIN SUBSTITUTES HOROSCOPESVIRGO (August 23 to September 22) With more stability in your life on both personal and professional levels this could be a good time to strengthen relationships with both friends and colleagues. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) People have always relied on your integrity not only to get the job done, but to get it done right. So dont be pressured by anyone into cutting corners to save time. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) While others might get rattled over unexpected changes, your ability to adapt calmly and competently helps you make a positive impression during a crucial period. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A changing environment might be daunting for some, but the adventurous Sagittarian takes it all in stride. A friend from the past could awaken some meaningful memories. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) With your self-assurance rising to full strength, the bold Goat should feel confident about opening up to new ventures as well as new relationships. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Reaching out to someone who has been unkind to you might not be easy. But in the long run it will prove to have been the right thing to do. A friend offers moral support. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your keen insight once again helps you work through a seemingly insoluble problem in your workplace. The weekend offers a good chance to develop new relationships. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) With your Arian charm quotient at an almost all-time high this week, plus all the facts to back you up, you just might win over the last doubters to your proposal. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You might be in line for that job change you applied for. But be advised that you could be called on to defend your qualifications against supporters of other applicants. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Creating a new approach to an old idea is one way to get beyond that workplace impasse. No such problems in your personal life, where things continue to flow smoothly. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Be more forthcoming about your feelings concerning a proposed change either in your workplace or in your personal life. Your opinions are valuable. Dont keep them hidden. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A changing situation in your life needs more patience than you appear to be willing to offer. Allowing it to develop at its own pace is the wisest course you can take at this time. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a knack for finding details that others would overlook.

B10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 30-SEPT. 5, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY THE BOWTIE GUY richardGAFFInstagram: PalmBeachBowTieGuy Businesses surround us and influence us with colors every day. Subconsciously, colors have an impact on us. I recently read an article that there is such a thing as a Pink Tax. Companies make an identical product such as a disposable razor one is pink and one is blue. On average, the pink one is priced 7 percent higher even though it is an identical product, just a different color. This is a form of gender-based price discrimination that stems from a company believing women are less price elastic then men. For a second, I was outraged and ready to start a movement. Then after a few seconds of anger, I realized this is just pure marketing at its finest. This is merely, generating additional revenue with the use of color alone. Its quite clever! Companies carefully craft and design their logos for maximum impact. They use colors to reinforce their message. For example, Dunkin Donuts uses pink and orange. Pink motivates action, increases pulse, communicates energy, while orange is optimistic and used to stimulate. This is what Im looking for on my morning coffee routine. Maybe you arent a member of team Dunkin and your morning routine includes Starbucks. While Starbucks is in the coffee business, their approach is very different and subsequently so are their colors. Starbucks logo of white and green communicates calmness and sophistication. Green is intended to encourage and revitalize, while also promoting balance, growth and harmony. Green aligns specifically to what Starbucks is trying to accomplish. At Starbucks, you can sit and relax and have a cup of coffee. Dunkin, on the other hand, appears to be more transactional as I have never sat and relaxed; I get my coffee and go. Starbucks also is more vocal on social issues, while Dunkin tends not to make statements on social issues. In recent news, Starbucks was the first to eliminate plastic straws from its drinks due to their impact on the environment. You think there is a correlation between their green stance and their green logo? Their color and message are strategically aligned. At this point, you must be asking, what does this have to do with me? You are now acutely aware that companies are influencing you with color. I propose that you use this knowledge to reinforce your own message and brand. How so? Simply use color when choosing an outfit. Research shows that people make subconscious judgment about a person, environment or product within 90 seconds. Sixty-seven percent to 90 percent of that judgment could be based on the color alone. There is a section of the brain that within seconds generates an opinion about someone. This part of the brain has evolved from fight, flight or freeze, a physiological reaction that occurs in response to a perceived harm, attack or threat. Fight or flight in todays environment might not be as actively used for life or death situations, but rather to judge immediately on credibility and trustworthiness. Here are two tips to market and brand yourself with color in a business setting. Step one, keep it simple. If you are going to a job interview or important meeting, simple is better. You arent there to make a fashion statement. Companies are more interested in what you have to say, and your clothes should not be a distraction from this objective. In fact, they should reinforce what you say. You dont want your clothes to be so loud someone cant hear your message or be so inappropriate they dont listen to what you have to say. People will make a judgment based on what you wear even before listening to you. When Im going to an important meeting, I almost always wear the same combination. A dark, solid suit, often black, and a white shirt. I do this because it limits distractions. I use my tie to reinforce my message. My tie wont have patterns on it, no animals, no strips, no polka dots, it is always a solid color. That color dictates my message. A solid red tie is what I wear to almost every interview. Red symbolizes excitement, energy, passion, courage and attention. I subconsciously gravitate to this tie. I think it is because it most closely defines me. In business meetings I can change my color in accordance to my message. In a business setting, keep it simple and use color to your advantage. If Im in a social setting, I have more flexibility with color. This is because Im going for fun, not going for business. If Im going to a Lady in Red Gala, I will have red on in some capacity. A red bow tie and a black tuxedo would be appropriate. If it is a cocktail function, I could wear red shoes or something fun; perhaps, I even could wear a red blazer. Ladies, obviously a red dress would be appropriate or something with red. For a Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer function, I would wear pink. In a social setting have fun and be creative with color. A few pitfalls to avoid: There are some settings that are inappropriate for color. The obvious is a funeral. One should almost always wear a black suit, white shirt and black tie. A wedding is tricky when it comes to colors. Women shouldnt wear the same color as bridesmaids. White should only be worn by the bride. White is worn because it symbolizes purity. In conclusion, use color to your advantage and be strategic with the message that your color speaks. Businesses use color to brand themselves, so should you. Use the knowledge to your advantage.

NoHenri Papillon Charriere must have been the most honorable criminal in history. According to Papillon, hes practically a saint. He is introduced as a safecracking thief in the early moments, but thats literally the only bad thing he does before telling his girlfriend (Eve Hewson) he wants to provide a good life for her and is being framed for murder. Its a rushed first 25 minutes, followed by a labored remaining two hours in which Papillon (Charlie Hunnam) is sent to prison in French Guiana in South America. There he plots his escape with a weakling counterfeiter named Louis Dega (Rami Malek); in exchange for the money hell need to escape, Papillon will protect Dega from the other inmates (and guards). An unlikely alliance forms (how couldnt it when both of you keep the same wad of money in your backside at different times?), and with it comes tedious monotony and head-scratching moments that dont register as genuine. For example, theres a scene in which Papillon and Dega are carrying a corpse through the jungle. The guard starts physically and verbally harassing the frail Dega, at which point Papillon picks up a rock and smashes it onto the guards head. Yes, Papillon has sworn to protect Dega, but we must consider two things: 1) The guard wasnt going to kill Dega, and 2) Papillon knows the penalty for striking a guard is two years in solitary confinement. If you think this through, Papillon sacrificed two years of his life two years in which it would be impossible to escape just because a guard was being mean to Dega. The action simply doesnt justify the consequence Papillon knew would come; worse, he wouldve been executed if the guard died. To its credit, the fight scenes are gritty and raw. In particular is the sequence in which Papillon and Dega are attacked while showering. They could not be more naked or exposed, meaning its pure fortitude on display as Papillon battles three men with weapons, all while also protecting Dega. Unlike the rest of the film, which feels repetitive, this scene is impactful. The film is based on Papillons true story, as told in the books Papillon and Banco and first imagined on screen in a 1973 film starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman. Lest you think the reason Papillon comes across so well in the movie is because he wrote the book on which it is based, the real Papillon himself admitted only 75 percent of the book is true, an assertion historians have come to believe is generous. The real criticism here, then, belongs to director Michael Noer and screenwriter Aaron Guzikowski, who failed to take the story and craft the best movie possible from it. Thus if youre looking to explore the story of Papillon, (re) watch the 1973 version. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Archival photos in the end show the real Papillon, and the real French Guiana penal colony in which he was imprisoned. FILM CAPSULES BY DAN HUDAKAlpha (Kodi Smit-McPhee, Natassia Malthe, Leonor Varela) Believed dead by his tribe while on a hunting expedition, teenage Keda (Smit-McPhee) forms a symbiotic bond with a wolf dog. The exposition drags, and though there are some impressive visual sequences, the story is never engaging enough to overcome the sluggish start. Rated PG-13. BlacKkKlansman (John David Washington, Adam Driver, Topher Grace) In the early 0s, an African-American police officer (Washington, Denzels son) in Colorado Springs infiltrates the Klu Klux Klan with the help of his white Jewish colleague (Driver). Director Spike Lees film is a bit long at 135 minutes, but its also nicely acted and well told. Rated R.Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor, Hayley Atwell, Bronte Carmichael) An adult Christopher Robin (McGregor) tries to keep his job and his family together, when his old friend Winnie the Pooh (voice of Lee Cummings) finds him in London in need of help. The visual effects are impressive, but the story isnt really for kids or adults, and its pretty dull. Rated PG.Generation Wealth (Limo Bob, Tiffany Masters, Florian Homm) Documentarian Lauren Greenfield examines societys obsession with wealth, image and material possessions in this cautionary doc that raises more questions than it can answer. Still, its an intriguing watch for its naked honesty. Rated R.Mission: Impossible Fallout (Tom Cruise, Henry Cavill, Rebecca Ferguson) Ethan Hunt (Cruise) and his team botch a mission, then have to save the world to make up for their mistake. The action is once again top notch, and the story has more twists than youre expecting. This is one of the best action franchises in movies today! Rated PG-13.

The Cobb, with fresh grilled chicken, plenty of blue cheese, crispy bacon and hard-cooked egg, always cools us down. The Steak Salad certainly did not disappoint, with tender chunks of filet mignon served medium, as ordered, with baby iceberg lettuce, blue cheese and sweet tomatoes. It was hearty and satisfying, but not too filling.

You can start with a bloody Mary here its spicy and hearty, then move on to an orange-pineapple pancake stack, or, since it has a Southern bent, order pork chops and eggs, or Tennessee country ham steak alongside. Giant biscuits of note covered in sausage gravy are a favorite here. Its about filling portions and solid favorites, and a morning pick-me-up from the bar. Jan Norris, firstname.lastname@example.org FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE SHUTTERSTOCK PHOTO Its September, so that means Flavor Palm Beach is the deal all month long. Some great dinner menus (and lunches) are put out by county restaurants hoping to attract new diners during a slump. The chefs, many notable, also use this event as a trial run at new dishes theyre considering for the coming season. Its win-win, then, as the prix-fixe meals with choices are moderately priced. For three (sometimes four) courses, expect to pay $45 and under at dinner. Threecourse lunches fall into the $25 range. Here are highlights from menus we like: Take the tuna crudo, with capers, mint and grapefruit, and the Mahi-mahi three ways at 3800 Ocean at the Palm Beach Marriott from chef James King. A $35 three-course dinner at CoolA Fishbar in Palm Beach Gardens has Coconut curry mussels, the grilled rainbow trout with a macadamia nut pesto on it, and the famous CoolA potato side. Dont miss the peanut butter pie here for dessert. The menu at Cafe Boulud with chef Rick Mace in Palm Beach is $49, with choices of grilled sea bass with fennels, clams and a saffron emulsion, braised flatiron Provenal, with carrot, orange and tomato, or a Swiss chard ravioli with piquillo pepper and tapenade. Big decision over dessert: Tarte Tropezienne or baked Alaska, or a traditional aprs meal cheese plate. At Evo in Tequesta, a huge selection is on the table courtesy of chef Erik Pettersen. A black truffle beggars purse ravioli in brown butter makes for a fine starter, with his twist on pasta carbonara con ouvo, pancetta, sweet peas, an egg yolk and a creamy pecorino sauce is served over bucatini. Dessert? Lemon zest ricotta cheesecake is the ticket. All for $35. Even sushi is offered for $35 at Imoto in Palm Beach, with chef Clay Conley Start with snapper tataki, move to a spicy tuna hand roll and assorted nigiri, or choose a tuna poke bowl with avocado, dashi, fried gobo, then you get assorted mochi for dessert. If youve wanted to try Cucina Cabana, the newish cabaret spot in North Palm Beach, check out the $35 dinner: a poached pear salad with Gorgonzola and candied walnuts; have Snapper oreganata over asparagus for a main dish, and tiramisu for dessert. Host Aldo will treat you like family. Limoncello in Palm Beach Gardens has a crispy duck all arancia, the Italian version of duck a lorange, served with wild rice a treat of a dish. The limoncello cheesecake is worth the trip. If its steak and meat you want, hit up The Meat Market in Palm Beach. For $45, you can get oysters on the halfshell, or a BBQ beef rib with jalapeo cole slaw and corn bread fritters; then a 6-onuce filet with truffle potato chips, or a smoked Wagu brisket with a coconut curried sweet potato. Other fine choices are here. The menu is for Monday-Thursday only. You also can dine at The Breakers Italian Restaurant and get a shaved cauliflower salad, swordfish en brodo with clams and Calabrian chili b utter, and a Smores pie for dessert, for $40. Also tempting is the $45 dinner at Sant Ambroeus in Palm Beach, with a Pizza San Daniele as a starter (tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, arugula and San Daniele pr osciutto topping). The branzino is a good main choice, and the house-made gelato choices for dessert are a must-have. General Tsos cauliflower starts off The Coopers $35 menu in Palm Beach Gardens. A creative vegetarian main plate features a squash-eggplant-bell pepper stack with quinoa and a spicy watermelon salad. Rainbow trout a la plancha and a shrimp pesto bucatini are there for pescaterians. Mango Key lime pie makes for a rounded meal. We favor the $20 lunch at The Regional, where a gazpacho with sorghum tabbouleh leads the app menu. The cheeky Meat n Two has chef Lindsay Autrys famous fried chicken thighs on it, but also the Duroc pork Milanese. Go for deviled eggs, and braised peas & greens as sides to keep it Southern.

Dr. Anne TRUST YOUR OPTIMAL FEMININE HEALTH & INTIMACY WITH DR. ANNE FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com OCTOBER 21How did you first get into business?I spent five years practicing corporate securities law for a major Philadelphia firm. I wanted to do something more creative that had a greater impact on people. I left law in the early 1980s to found one of the nations first Assisted Living communities. This new alternative was a rebellion against the long entrenched medical/ institutional model of care for the elderly. It was wildly successful and families flocked to us. I spent about 15 years refining the concept, developing other communities and advocating around the country for this model. When Wall Street entered the industry in the late 1990s and it became more corporatized, I sold my facilities and retired to Boca Raton. However, when my parents reached their mid80s and required assistance, they wanted no part of a nursing home or assisted living facility. They wanted to stay in their home. Thats the reason I started Visiting Angels in Palm Beach Gardens. I thought, What could be less institutional than home care? What are some recent trends youve seen in your industry?Were seeing a proliferation of web based companies that purport to find care workers for customers, often skirting the Florida regulations. But they dont do the background checking, face to face interviewing and quality assurance that local companies can provide. Were also seeing some of the hospital systems create their own home care companies to vertically integrate their operations. This is a positive trend and can lead to improved accountability for outcomes if it is done right. What lessons did you learn from the great recession?Dont do anything rash. These things are cyclical.What is your vision for the future of your business?I see us continuing to refine our ability to adapt to the unique needs and preferences of each client. As philosophies of senior care evolve, I predict that nursing homes will nearly disappear as venues for extended care, and many more services and activities will be brought into the home to allow seniors to age in place in a familiar residential environment. Better integration and coordination of home care with the clients other health care providers will help. We hope to be part of that trend. What new products or services will you introduce in the next year?We will be focusing more on education for caregivers as well as for families. Understanding the impact of the limitations that come with advanced age is key to providing excellent service. This is especially true for helping people with Alzheimers Disease, Parkinsons and similar conditions. Specialized teams to target specific conditions is one new approach. We also hope to introduce new technologies as an option now that they have become more refined. For example, we are in discussions with a company to provide non-intrusive monitoring systems that track patterns of movement in the home and then detect departures from the pattern to generate safety alerts. Weve also developed a niche practice in helping people of all ages with recovery after surgery. What are some of the challenges you face this year?Without a doubt the biggest new challenge for all home care companies is adjusting to the radical new labor law changes adopted by the Department of Labor. Forty years of established law has been virtually erased by an administrative decree through the elimination of the Companionship exemption. Overtime regulations make it more challenging for older adults to have continuity and consistency of caregivers. This is especially hard on people with dementia who do much better when a single, familiar caregiver can be with them most of the time.What are your thoughts on the South Florida economy?For businesses that serve the elderly, there will be steady growth in the near term. Deteriorating weather patterns in the Northeast and Midwest are leading seniors to stay longer in Florida or give up their northern homes in favor of a Florida residence. When the cohort of Boomers (born 1946 to 1964) hit their eighties and begin to require assistance, there will be an overwhelming explosion in the senior care economy in South Florida. Thats less than a decade off, and we need to start planning now to be able to meet the need. What do you look for in recruiting talent?Character, Compassion and Passion are the big three for me. A candidate can have all the technical skill and experience possible, but if they are missing any of those three fundamental qualities, I have no interest. Figuring out who really has those qualities is not easy. Whats the most important business lesson youve learned?Never sacrifice your core ethical principles for profit. Always put your clients welfare above your financial interest. In the long run, that will bring you financial success. This is just a corollary of Aristotles theory of Virtue.What do you enjoy most about the job? People. And the opportunity to be creative. What would people be surprised to know about you?When I was a kid, I got into lots of trouble for doing flips off of every elevated surface I could find. I ended up lettering in Gymnastics in college. I did my last back flip at age 50 and Im still temptedWhat could be less institutional than home care?Irving P.

Family foundations, individuals and corporations could no longer support those who were doing really important work. Donors became more laser focused with their gifts and nonprofits became even more transparent. Each year, this becomes more and more important in a good way. Quantum House has always been committed to making sure that the minute a supporter crosses the threshold, they know exactly where their gift and their time are having an impact to care for the families that we serve. Name the top three elements or practices that have been absolutely critical in the success of your business? Staying true to our mission, integrity and outstanding stewardship are the three practices that have been absolutely critical to our success. Each day we welcome children and families who are facing some of their most difficult days. We have cared for thousands of families in need over the past 15 years and each guest has been given much more than just lodging. They receive a huge embrace from the community and the peace of mind that they will get through a terrible time with support and care.What are things youd like to change about your industry now? Your organization or business?I would love to change the perception that a nonprofit is not a real business. When businesses are brought to the table to discuss important economic and impact issues, seldom will you see a representative from the nonprofit world as a part of that group. The reality is that we have budgets just like any business with the normal anticipated expenses of payroll, utilities, insurance, supplies and more. Within the context of your current marketing/ promotional strategy, how do you differentiate your company from your competitors?Many folks dont know about hospital hospitality houses until they need one. And, as the only house like this between Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, we continue to make certain that anyone who needs a place to stay to be nearby while their child receives care, has the opportunity to do so. Creative marketing and strategies to get our message to the community and pediatric medical services are a top priority. What will you base your success on for 2018? Success in 2017 is operating with 30 guest suites providing lodging and love to hundreds more families, and providing opportunities for the community to join in on our journey by preparing meals, organizing arts and crafts, playing golf, reading stories, sharing their pets and all of their talents with the families who call Quantum House home. Because we are not exclusive to any illness or injury, we can welcome so many. How is social media impacting your industry or business this year? Whats in store for 2018?While I understand and appreciate the importance of social media, I just dont think you can beat the value of relationships. I hope that being able to pick up the phone or meeting for coffee will never be replaced. Social media allows Quantum House to share the message that the families we care for are just like you. Each of us has a child in our lives, a son or daughter, niece or nephew, a child of a friend, so each of us might need a place like Quantum House. What do you truly love about working here in Palm Beach County? For many, living in Palm Beach County is the prize for having lived a good life. We are the fortunate ones who are already here. Also, this is a very generous community. Folks here know that giving back and participating in making this a better place to live is just part of the deal. How do you find inspiration in todays business climate? My inspiration is the families who stay with us at Quantum House. These folks and their precious children are going through some pretty dark days. Seeing their challenges, their strength, their smiles and their tears can put everything into perspective.
