Caregivers and advocates say there is a lack of available foster homes as well as funding and support for preventative services to help struggling parents keep their children, and resources for friends and relatives who often take in children removed from their parents. The lack of services hurts kids in the states care by failing to provide them with the crucial stability and attention they need to flourish in a situation that is already traumatic. Community-Based Care Lead Agencies, which contract with the states Department of Children and Families to administer the child welfare system, say they need more foster families, and support for friends and relatives who help provide care, as well as for parents so that fewer lose their children to the stateBY THE NUMBERS: Percent of sex trafficking victims missing from social services in 2016.

KOSHO SHOREI ENERGY MEDICINE COMMENTARYLove, Love, LoveIn a span of about 10 weeks, a true miracle has occurred in the world around us. World peace? No, not yet. The second coming of our Lord and Savior? Lets hope not. Were far from ready to be judged. An end to poverty? Sure, that must be it. NOT! Bipartisan harmony, good will, keen judgment and selfless sacrifice to Make America Great Again in Washington and Tallahassee? Maybe thats next year. It sure isnt this year. No, this is something even more remarkable than any of those cute little fantasies; this is Love! Every single politician in the state of Florida especially Republicans whose voting records indicate they didnt give a damn in the past has suddenly become a fierce, insistent environmentalist. Suddenly these men and women love the Everglades, love clean water, love clean air, love all the lovely flora and fauna that depend on it, and love all the lovely tourists who themselves love clean water, clean air, healthy flora and fauna and lovely beaches. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the season of L ove, Love, Love, and youre here to see it! The politicians show up on docks or piers, spouting dismay and love. They show up on beaches, in parks, maybe even in your dreams when the water gets really bad, spouting love. Take the two most prominent and most likely to put a stamp on the future if they get elected in November: the veteran politicians Ron DeSantis (five years in Washington, already) and Rick Scott (eight years in Tallahassee, already). DeSantis is the U.S. representative now running on the Republican ticket for governor of the nations third-largest state. Earlier in the summer, as the toxic algae blooms began to devastate Lake Okeechobee and both rivers east and west of it, with red tide spread out along the Gulf Coast for 150 miles, Rep. DeSantis was finally showing his love, or at least talking about it. Im going to stand with the fishermen and the boaters and the property owners that populate (regions east and west of Lake O.), he told Republicans, referring to the deleterious effects on their lives of toxic releases from the lake. If we want to win the governors race in 2018, weve got to be able to go to the citizens of the Treasure Coast weve got to be able to go to Southwest Florida (and) say, If you elect me as your governor, I will do something about these toxic discharges. Thats a first. For the last few years in Washington, Rep. DeSantis has voted against almost every bill aimed at protecting or cleaning the environment for fishermen or boaters or property owners. Including water bills from California to the Sunshine State. In 2017 alone, for example, he voted to give power companies an easier path to profit even when the health of rivers was threatened; he voted to take away the right of the federal government to help protect ocean environments, leaving it up to states, a tactic that has proved catastrophic in parts of Florida; he voted to stop analyzing the cost of carbon impacts in big projects; he voted to shrink the budget of the Environmental Protection Agency, which helps protect water in Florida and elsewhere; he voted to take away money and marching orders requiring the Department of Defense to analyze and prepare for the cost of climate change, which Pentagon analysts have long warned is a threat to our national security; and he voted to eliminate safeguards protecting the public from pesticides delivered into water, to name just a few. All thats a matter of public record, not me saying so. His concern for the environment is roughly as real as the concern a hungry coyote feels for rabbits. And what about Gov. Rick Scott, the Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in a neck-and-neck race against Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson? Gov. Scott, together with most Republicans in the state House and many in the Senate, just spent eight years deregulating businesses, agriculture and federal as well as state protections of water so Florida would be business friendly. He killed the Department of Community Affairs, once tasked with looking at every big development in the state and deciding what impact it would have on everything else around it water, for example before permitting projects. He fired environmental investigators and reduced the number of cases taking on polluters by 80 to 85 percent, from as many as 1,500 or so to about 250 in a year. And in 2012 he sealed the fate of a 2010 bill that required old septic tanks to be inspected for leaks every five years by signing a new bill that ended that policy. Unfortunately, along both the St. Lucie and the Caloosahatchee rivers, old leaking septic tanks are widely understood to be part of the problem of cyanobacteria, fueling the massive blooms. When a Tampa Bay reporter asked him why hed signed off on the 2012 legislation deregulating septic tanks, he had a spokesman respond. Its absurd to say that a bill that the Legislature passed with an overwhelming, bipartisan majority to save homeowners money six years ago has somehow caused the algal bloom problem thats been plaguing the state for decades. No, nothing absurd about it. You stiffarmed water protections for eight years, governor, and now youre the one to blame for the trouble we have. roger 1/2 PRICE SALE 1/2 PLUS buy 3 get a 4th FREE!THE ULTIMATE FOOTWEAR EXPERIENCE Luxury Comft Footar 10953 N.

No portion may be reproduced without the express written consent of Florida Media Group, LLC. OPINIONAmerican slapstickThis is one of those good news, bad news situations. First, the good news: North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has communicated his continuing trust in President Donald Trump to make good on their deal, whatever it is. POTUS reciprocated by going to Twitter to thank Kim for his unwavering faith. Now the bad news: Faith in Trump is wavering big-time in his own administration. If we cant trust Bob Woodward, who wrote in his new book that Trumps top aides go to huge lengths to block his craziest decisions, then perhaps we can believe Mr. or Ms. Anonymous, described by The New York Times only as a senior official in the Trump administration. With his or her identity shielded, this secret person presumably a higherup somewhere in Trumpland has described in a Times op-ed a scary state of chaos, constantly created by the man who is the chief executive, that his top aides try to alleviate by all manner of chicanery, or as the anonymous one put it, thwarting Mr. Trumps more misguided impulses until he is out of office. That cloak and dagger opus came right on the heels of excerpts from Woodwards book released by The Washington Post, where he works, that describes the freak show that is the Trump White House. Its called Fear, and the details certainly are fearsome. Needless to say, Trump, already crazed by the Woodward revelations and all the other stuff that subjects him daily to ridicule, went absolutely ballistic with the op-ed by someone who works for him. TREASON, he tweeted, and he was reported to be screaming at everybody in sight. Certainly, The New York Times had drawn blood. But the decision to publish an unsigned opinion was drawing condemnation not just from the president, but from many in journalism, the ones he dismisses as enemies of the people. In this case, they joined a large number of politicians wondering whether the Times had made a mistake in allowing the author of such an incendiary column to be concealed. In case youre wondering, I share those doubts. True, reporters frequently agree to go on deep background to gather information for their stories. Woodwards book is full of deep background material. But this is for news reports. In this case, the book is an extended report, based on facts. In the Times, this was a piece reflecting a point of view in a section of the paper that is supposed to be devoted to signed opinion. Although it is not unheard of to shroud a writers identity when his or her life would be in danger for sharing a vital perspective, it is exceedingly rare for obvious reasons. Plus, its awkward as all get-out. Every reporter, including those at the Times, immediately scrambled to out the nameless senior official. Among the clues, the use of the word lodestar, meaning a guiding light. Who commonly uses that word? Vice President Mike Pence, for one. Pence immediately denied he was the author. In fact, nearly every major domo in the administration did. Meanwhile, Kim in Pyongyang has some ideas on how to end all the Washington chaos. President Trump gives some indication hed love to hear them. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN.The blue-collar recoveryThe economic recovery is really beginning to reach into Trump country. The president is famous for his extravagant promises, involving, invariably, the biggest and the best. The landscape is littered with examples, although he never promised to create blue-collar jobs at the fastest clip since 1984, something he achieved in the first half of 2018. A labor market that has been rocky since the financial crisis, and hasnt truly delivered for many workers for decades, is robust enough to reach all corners of the economy, including Trump areas that have recently been doing better than other parts of the country. As the Brookings Institution observes, goods-producing industries have been surging while services industries have seen their seasonally adjusted employment growth slow since 2016. This is good news for smaller, more rural areas, which are now actually outpacing the growth rate in large urban areas. According to Jed Kolko of Indeed Hiring Lab, job growth accelerated between 2016 and 7 in counties that Trump won by at least 20 points. Several things are going on. As the labor market has tightened in June, there were 6.7 million job openings and 6.6 million unemployed Americans it has benefited workers down the income scale. The administration, for its part, has leaned into a pro-growth tax and deregulatory program meant to spur more investment and remove burdens on business. The goal has been to defeat fatalist predictions of a secular stagnation that supposedly meant that we could never realistically expect anything more than middling economic growth. At the moment, the warnings are less of stagnation than of an alleged labor shortage that, according to CNBC, is nearing epidemic proportions. This is exactly what we need. As Josh Barro of Business Insider points out, a tight labor market puts welcome upward pressure on wages and creates an incentive for workers to get more training and employers to provide it. This dynamic still needs time to take hold. Wage growth, at least by traditional measures, has been surprisingly sluggish given the low unemployment rate (the White House argues that wages are being mismeasured and underestimated). But in August, encouragingly, average hourly wages increased 2.9 percent from a year ago, the biggest increase since June 2009. As for training, a report from the National Association of Manufacturers says that two-thirds of manufacturers plan to increase worker training in the next year. This is so important because its only possible to achieve sustainable wage gains by increasing the productivity of workers. And so far, despite the boom, productivity increases have still been lagging. The encouraging news for blue-collar workers is welcome. But we should set our sights higher. Regaining what was lost in the aftermath of the financial crisis isnt enough. The national priority should be, as Oren Cass of the Manhattan Institute argues in his forthcoming book The Once and Future Worker, returning to a lost golden age of work, when labor force participation rates and wage growth were both reliably high. The implicit Trump pledge in the 2016 campaign was of jobs good and stable enough to make a decent living and raise a family. That should never be overpromising in America.

Full Physical Therapy Facility Alpert seeks volunteers for seniors helping seniors program BY EMILY J. MINORSpecial to Florida WeeklyTheyre a team, these two. The grocery store, the bank, maybe lunch now and again. And were always going to the doctors, says Phyllis Lederman, 72, of suburban Lake Worth. We have fun, says Jamie Badenoch, 68. We laugh. And some days, thats about all you can ask for. Heres the deal with Ms. Lederman and Ms. Badenoch, the one-two team thats been getting together at least once a week for the past year and a half. Its an arranged friendship at least it was in the beginning. Ms. Badenoch, a retired geriatric social worker, and Ms. Lederman, who is blind with the degenerative eye disease retinitis pigmentosa, are part of the Enhanced Companion program at Alpert Jewish Family Services. Basically, it works like this: Ms. Lederman needs help and companionship running errands, matching up outfits that dont clash, getting out of the house and giving her husband a respite. And Ms. Badenoch? The Boynton Beach woman and Palm Beach County native simply needed to give back. Is it a clich if its true? In its 16th year, this seniors helping seniors arrangement is part of the Jewish Family Services national AmeriCorps program, a one-on-one partnership that assists elderly clients with everyday tasks. The partnership has also proven to ease loneliness, depression and isolation for both the companion and the client. Currently, the agency is recruiting AmeriCorps workers for its next training session, which begins in October. Program Director Nancy Frent said AmeriCorps companions can be any age, although the seniors helping seniors arrangement seems to work best. We do find that retirees are a really good fit for this program, Ms. Frent said. They have a lot of shared life experiences with the clients. But, bottom line, its our goal to make a good match for the client. Each AmeriCorps companion must commit to 450 hours with their clients over a 12-month period and the companions earn a monthly stipend of $211, plus mileage. Interested in going through the training and becoming involved? Call Ms. Frent at 561-238-0235 for information. The next training starts in October, but Ms. Frent needs to hear from you ASAP to get things rolling. You either click or you dont click, Ms. Lederman said about working with an enhanced companion. And Jamie and I, we clicked. MorseLife, volunteers pack holiday meals for homeboundJewish seniors throughout Palm Beach County started the New Year on an extra-sweet note, thanks to MorseLife Health System. In celebration of Rosh Hashanah, this provider of senior health care, housing and support services prepared 2,000 traditional holiday meals complete with Matzah ball soup, honey-garlic chicken, challah, honey cake and wine. A team of 350 volunteers assembled at MorseLifes West Palm Beach campus Sept. 6 to deliver the food and fellowship to homebound seniors from Jupiter to Boca Raton. In addition to the complimentary meals, seniors were gifted with large-print prayer books and a digital recording of services so they could continue to celebrate one of the most important holidays of the Jewish calendar at home. The Homebound Mitzvah Program meaning to do a good deed has been a MorseLife tradition for 21 years, Linda Sevich, MorseLifes director of community services, said in a statement. This program feeds not only the body but also the soul. Our volunteers spend quality time with the seniors to help diminish some of the loneliness felt over the Jewish holidays. Based in West Palm Beach, MorseLife Health System is a full-service senior living and support service provider. It offers independent and assisted living accommodations, as well as memory care, shortand long-term rehab, and home health care. Since 1997, the MorseLife Homebound Mitzvah program has delivered kosher holiday meals, prayer books and digital recordings of services to more than 50,000 homebound Jewish seniors. The program was founded by Marilyn and Stanley M. Katz and has been sustained through the gifts of community philanthropists and support from the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County.

A6 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2018 PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALES50 Years for Winn BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationWhen you feed your cat; purchase a Maine coon or ragdoll kitten who doesnt have a mutation for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, the most commonly diagnosed form of heart disease in cats; or have your cats diabetes reversed through a change in diet, youre benefiting from research funded by the Winn Feline Foundation (winn, which is celebrating its golden anniversary of helping cats. The organization, founded in December 1968 with a $125 donation from the Cat Fanciers Association, has grown into an internationally recognized force for feline health research and education. More than $6 million later, Winn has supported scientists studying chronic kidney disease in cats, feline infectious peritonitis and stem cell therapy for managing inflammatory conditions such as chronic gingival stomatitis. Its successes are well-known to informed cat lovers. Their work on kidney atrophy and disease in Persians and exotics is important and gives me hope that there will be a cure someday for polycystic kidney disease (PKD), says Dee Dee Drake, executive director of Calaveras Humane Society in California. Discoveries by Winn-funded researchers now allow cat breeders to test for PKD and breed away from it in their lines. Testing also allows the disease to be identified earlier in a cats life. The disease cant be halted, but early identification means cats can be treated for loss of kidney function at an earlier stage of disease. And because Persians have been used in breeding programs for other breeds, such as exotics the Persians shorthaired cousin those breeds benefit as well. Cat breeder Lorraine Shelton cites evidence-based research showing that earlyage spay and neuter surgery is safe in cats. While there is evidence in dogs that early-age spay and neuter poses health risks, studies in cats have not uncovered negative side effects. But for many cat owners, the word most associated with Winn is taurine. In 1987, the organization took a chance on veterinary cardiologist Paul Pions hypothesis that a deficiency of taurine in cat foods was linked to the high incidence of dilated cardiomyopathy and funded his research on an emergency basis. He was correct, and now cat foods are formulated to meet the feline need for taurine. Today, most veterinarians dont see cats with dilated cardiomyopathy except in unusual situations, says Vicki Thayer, DVM, Winns executive director. Pain relief and the effects of stress on cats are also important to feline health and welfare. At Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine, Elena Contreras, DVM, and Michael Lappin, DVM, are studying whether concentrations of cortisol one of the stress hormones in fur and nails can provide veterinarians with a simple, accurate way to measure and diagnose chronic stress in cats. And at North Carolina State University, Santosh Mishra, Ph.D., and Duncan Lascelles, Ph.D., MRCVS, are using a grant from Winn to study degenerative joint disease-associated pain and hypersensitivity in cats. Much of Dr. Lascelles research focuses on ways veterinarians can recognize and manage pain in cats. These types of studies are critical to veterinarians who want to reduce the stress cats experience in the exam room as well as provide better pain relief for cats with osteoarthritis, which is a more common problem than people realize, says Marty Becker, DVM, founder of the Fear Free organization, which has the goal of reducing fear, anxiety and stress associated with pet health care. Starting this month, Winn begins a focus on raising money for research into chronic kidney disease, a common problem in aging cats. A lot of people have shown that they are concerned about chronic kidney disease in cats, so we want to do a matching fund to see if we can support more kidneydisease research, Dr. Thayer says.

Joseph Boakye, 31, of Worcester is one of two suspects wanted by Westborough police for allegedly selling 15 kilograms of counterfeit gold dust. In July, the victims met Boakye and his accomplice at an Extended Stay America hotel and tested the gold dust for authenticity. Apparently satisfied, they paid $26,000 in cash and transferred $280,000 into a Bank of America account, after which they received a locked Sentry safe that supposedly held the gold dust. Boakye told them they would get the combination to the safe after the transfer cleared. But two days later, when they were unable to open the safe, the victims called a locksmith. Inside shocking was counterfeit gold.OopsAn Orlando home will need more than roof repairs after a crane parked outside tipped over on Sept. 4, splitting the house in half so cleanly daylight could be seen through it. United Press International reported the roof was under construction when the machinery fell over, likely because the ground underneath it was wet, said Ivan Fogarty, corporate safety director for crane operator Beyel Brothers Crane & Rigging. No one was inside the home at the time, and no one on the roofing crew was injured, but the house has been declared unlivable. NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY THE EDITORS AT ANDREWS MCMEELDistributed by Universal Press Syndicate Least-competent criminals Thieves in Roanoke County, Virginia, hit the same shoe store twice in July and August, according to the Roanoke Times, stealing shirts, hoodies, jackets and right shoes. Thirteen shoes meant for a right foot were taken from Clean Soles, where store operator Rob Wickham said he typically displays right shoes and keeps the mates behind the counter. Theyre not much good unless you have two right feet, said Wickham. A 17-year-old suspect has been charged with the July break-in. A homeowner in Toluca Lake, Calif., looked at video from his surveillance camera late on Aug. 29 and saw a person on the property, but it wasnt until the next day, when he looked around for any damage, that a man was discovered stuck between a wall and a garage. KCAL TV reported that it took firefighters more than an hour to free the unnamed man, a suspect wanted in connection with a burglary the night before. Los Angeles police arrested him for trespassing as he was transported to the hospital with minor injuries.Overreactions Bryan Tucker of Sandston, Va., was FED UP TO HERE! with kids littering his lawn as they waited at the Henrico County school bus stop adjacent to his property. So on Sept. 4, he installed a battery-powered electric fence. They dont respect other peoples land, Tucker told WTVR TV. I pick up trash every day. Officials informed him later that day that the fence was placed on county property, not his own, so Tucker took it down. But he still thinks the point was made: The message has gotten across, Tucker said. Parents are posting and talking about it. Monica Walley of Holden Heights wrote a negative online review Aug. 20 about the Daybreak Diner in Orlando, accusing the restaurant of refusing service to her disabled mother. The negative review didnt sit well with the diner owners son, Michael Johnson, or his housemates, Jesse Martin and Norman Auvil, reported WFTV. That evening, as the three sat drinking beer, Martin looked up Walleys address, then they drove to her home, where Auvil, 42, shot three rounds into the house. I actually could feel the air from the bullet as it passed by me, said Ken Walley, Monicas father. I didnt think anybody was crazy enough to do something like this over something so small, Monica Walley said. Auvil was arrested Aug. 30 and charged with shooting into a dwelling, according to the Orange County Sheriffs Office.


PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2018 NEWS A7 FLORIDA WEEKLY 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.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2018 PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYWhen kids feel safe, secure, and theyve got a family surrounding, then they can start looking forward, said Charles Bender, CEO of Place of Hope, a faith-based nonprofit based in Palm Beach Gardens that oversees and provides support for traditional foster families as well as group residential programs. But if you cant provide that stuff, you can forget about it. But if you can, (children can) get on their feet pretty quickly, and thats what were seeing. Space for foster kids overseen by Place of Hope is at full capacity with about 350 children and youth in its care from north Broward County to Vero Beach, an increase of more than a third in five years, similar to the spike in kids in the state system. Since 2013, the total number of children who were removed from homes and placed in Floridas child welfare system rose by 39 percent, from 17,282 in July 2013, the latest data shows, to 24,067 kids in July this year. The total includes an increase of kids in licensed foster care homes from 5,494 to 7,210 and a rise of those in far more expensive group settings from 1,845 to 2,052. Those placed in a preferred home, with a relative or friend, grew from 9,221 to 13,577. In addition to increases in kids coming in to care month-over-month in the last few years, kids are also more often staying in care longer, the Department of Children and Family says. For kids entering an overburdened child welfare system, finding a sense of stability can be difficult or impossible at times. Mr. Bender said it is very common for kids taken in at Place of Hope homes to have bounced around, sometimes all over the state, to different living situations 0 to 15 times by the age of 10 or 12. That can happen, for instance, if they misbehave or a foster family decides they cant handle the child anymore for whatever reason. Those children may in turn be more at risk for any number of factors including mental health problems and poverty, or running away and falling prey to sex traffickers or pimps. The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children estimates that 1 in 6 runaways in the U.S. in 2016 were likely sex trafficking victims and that 86 percent of those victims were likely in the care of social services when they went missing. NCMEC says that as of Sept. 5 there are 210 active cases of children missing from Floridas child welfare system, including five in Lee County and eight in Palm Beach County. It is NCMECs policy not to release the names of those children in the states care who went missing, said vice president Bob Lowery. We dont publish them that way only because we dont want to label them as a foster child necessarily, he said. For some children that would be a certain stigma. Tampa resident Portia Duncan, who aged out of the child welfare system last year when she turned 18, said she often fled abysmal group home conditions, including bullying and favoritism by shift workers in group homes, and turned to sex trafficking as a way to make income. Ms. Duncan is now a member of Florida Youth SHINE, a statewide group of current and former foster children who have become advocates for other kids in their communities. Ms. Duncan was placed in the states care in part because of her own anger issues and her moms struggle with addiction, she said. She described living at a group home at age 12 in which she was bullied by older girls, ran away, and was assaulted, she said. They werent going to chase me, she said. I didnt run, I didnt jump out a window, I walked out the front door and walked to this little boys house. Later, she bounced from group home to group home. Eventually another girl told her she could make money being in sex trafficking rings. People who are exploited for sex or work by force, fraud or coercion, or who are 17 years of age or younger, are victims of human trafficking. I was making thousands of dollars a day, so what 13-year-old isnt going to like that, she said. You feel as though you dont have anyone there to support you. She continued on and off until she was 17. Ms. Duncan found a way out as a member of Youth SHINE and, finally, with foster parents she grew close to. We had our ups and downs, but they treat me like Im their child, she said. Now she has an apartment and is enrolled in cosmetology school. The greatest area of need is in the form of new foster parents as well as preventative programs that more often keep kids at risk of removal with their parents or place them with relatives or friends, say Community-Based Care Lead Agencies that contract with the state to administer the child welfare system in Florida, along with subcontractors such as Place of Hope. That also frees up room in foster family households and reduces assignments for overburdened case workers. Finding the best living scenario for children at risk of or entering the welfare system is the focus of the 17 CBC lead agencies that administer the child welfare system in the Sunshine State, such as the nonprofit ChildNet in Palm Beach County. The best way to create stability for kids in the child welfare system is the availability of more foster families, said ChildNets CEO Larry Rein, because that makes it more likely that individual children who are being removed from a home are placed with a family that suits their needs. We always really desperately need more great (foster families), Mr. Rein said. His counterpart in Southwest Florida, Nadereh Salim, agrees. She adds that STRAINEDFrom page 1 When kids feel safe, secure, and theyve got a family surrounding, then they can start looking forward ...

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2018 NEWS A9a renewed effort to boost preventative care to more often keep children with families or place them with friends or relatives also frees up space with foster families. When we put kids in foster homes, we look at the needs of the children and the strength of the family and try to make a match, said Ms. Salim, CEO of the nonprofit Childrens Network of Southwest Florida, the lead agency for Lee, Charlotte, Collier, Hendry and Glades counties. So in that respect, the more the merrier. Theres always a shortage of foster homes, especially those that can handle some of our challenging (kids) or large sibling groups or kids that have complex trauma needs. Since 2013, the five-county Southwest Florida region has seen a 41 percent increase in the total number of children in out-of-home care. There were 1,500 kids in the system in July compared to fewer than 900 five years ago. From 2008 through 2013, the monthly numbers of kids entering the Childrens Network region never rose above 100. In the last five years, counts rose above 100 at least 10 months, peaking with 148 in May 2017. The greater numbers of kids coming into the child welfare system reflects rising drug abuse rates, Mr. Rein said. I think in Palm Beach were seeing maybe a little bit belatedly impact related to substance abuse. I cant say with 100 percent certainty its opioids because the investigation does not denote the substance of choice thats involved when theres a removal. But we have seen a change in the makeup for reasons of removal where historically substance abuse has been the primary maltreatment in a removal at rates of 25 to 30 percent. In this last calendar year, weve seen that percentage climb to well over 40 and as high as 50 percent. Southwest Florida childrens advocates also suggest opioids are a leading factor behind the higher numbers of removals attributed to drug abuse. DCF says there is not conclusive data to confirm that because a parents or caregivers drug of choice is not specified in a removal investigation. For six years, Estero resident Laura Fagan has served as a Guardian ad Litem, a court-appointed advocate for children entering the child welfare system who gets to know each of their cases intimately. So yes, I have had myself at least four newborns who were exposed to opioids, Ms. Fagan said. Its not uncommon, and thats just the newborns. I know there are just a lot of kids suffering, well, families suffering because of the opioid crisis. When the baby is born if mom is tested positive for substances theyre going to test the baby. Ms. Salim sees drug abuse issues as a primary factor in kids entering the system. We see again that opioid use and substance abuse in general is an initial and recurring factor that brings families into our care, she said. And we are seeing a rise in kids removed due to parental substance abuse. Mr. Bender came to the same conclusion. We are definitely seeing a spike of kids coming in to care again, but I dont think its because somebodys overreacting or removing (them from home) too quickly, he said a criticism that has been made of DCF case managers in the past when rates of kids entering the system spiked. I think the reality is there are some really dangerous situations out there right now. The opioid epidemic is definitely one of those factors or reasons, probably a primary one. The states first choice if children must be removed from their primary caregiver or parents is to place them with close friends or relatives, Ms. Salim said. This is where the greatest numbers of children entering the welfare system go. Thats followed by licensed foster families, and finally residential group homes, where care is typically much more expensive because of paid staff members for three shifts. Lord knows we wish every placement was the first placement and the last placement, Mr. Rein said. Realistically, thats not going to happen. But I think we can do a better job of it if we can grow the inventory of foster parents and if we can better support those caregivers.Solutions through preventionThose efforts could be bolstered by the Family First Prevention Services Act signed by President Trump this year and going into effect next October, which allows states to spend federal child welfare dollars on preventative services, including in-home parenting skills programs and substance abuse and treatment services, the National Conference of State Legislatures says. The act will, within the next year or several years, dramatically change the way the feds fund foster care and child welfare, Mr. Rein said. Money currently spent on residential group care moving more towards foster families and relative caregivers and doing prevention work. Mr. Rein said Childrens Network of SWFL is a leader in the state when it comes to support for relative or closefriend caregivers, and for families to keep kids from being removed. Ms. Salim also believes the Family First Prevention Act could encourage the type of preventative and early intervention services that could reduce the burden on foster families over time. Childrens Network has pushed to send most of those kids coming into the system in the last few years to live with friends and relatives, including a kinship search unit, people who attend every shelter hearing with the sole purpose of identifying relatives or close friends a child might live with. Then it has helped relatives keep them in another bid for stability. Sometimes thats a matter of providing help with basic safety items such as diapers, car seats, cribs or baby formula, or talking with Childrens Network staff about where to get other types of assistance. We have several grants that we can immediately make those necessary safety items available to relatives so theyre able to maintain the placement, Ms. Salim said. That helps reduce the burden on foster families and keep a larger and more diverse inventory of foster homes available. Childrens Network creates more stability in the system, too, by training caregivers to address childrens sometimes bad behavior breaking things, running away, or hurting animals, for example in the context of the trauma theyve experienced so theyre not immediately saying, we cant handle this kid come and get him. And Childrens Network partners with United Way to provide volunteer mentors for parents who have just gotten their child back after a removal. These programs are reducing the burden on foster families and making the child welfare system more stable for kids, Ms. Salim says. Typically, we would have seen a higher increase in foster care but because weve been able to serve the families safer at home weve been able to kind of flip that on its side, she said, in the last several years. No matter how bad the situation is at home the fact that you get removed from your parents, your home, and your siblings is another trauma, so if we can prevent that we are not perpetuating that trauma.Family tiesWhen children are reunited with their parents, there can be joy as well as anxiety. In order to keep more kids in a stable relationship at home, Childrens Network of SWFL and the United Way partnered to create a family mentoring program with advocates for mom and dad as soon as the state reunites them with their children. If parents agree, the volunteers will typically meet with them, as well as kids, once a week at least for the first six months after the children get home, sometimes as a parenting coach or just a thoughtful ear. For 23-year-old Fort Myers resident and single mom Tylaesia Jordon, her mentor, Lisa Blanton, has been a bright spot in a welfare system she has often found unreasonable. I love Ms. Lisa, shes very good, we talk about everything, said Ms. Jordon, who works at a call bank helping When we put kids in foster homes, we look at the needs of the children and the strength of the family and try to make a match ...

She hopes to go back to school to be trained as a medical assistant. Her children ages 1, 4, 5 and 8 came back home to live with her in June. The older children had spent two years placed with their grandmother, taken by the state after she spent a day in jail on a domestic violence call. I felt like I gave up on them, thats how I felt, like I left them, she said. I still do kind of feel like that to this day because you dont know what they have to go through. Aint nobodys going to love them like Im going to love them. That was devastating for me and it still is to this day. As a single pregnant mom stringing together what income she could during the year after her children were placed with her mom, she said the state required her to pay $35 per week to attend a group session in which they were taught things like to not fight, walk away, she said. Dont say bad words. Stuff like that. Her mentor, Ms. Blanton, 40, lives in Lehigh Acres and is a medical assistant and receptionist. I think these men and women benefit the most because they may not have a support group or system nearby or at all so sometimes the mentors are the only people that are their support system, she said. They have my number, they know they can always call me any time. And I feel that not only do they benefit from me, but I benefit from them. They teach me how things are, how rough it can be for them. Ms. Blanton started mentoring just a few days after Ms. Jordons kids returned. To be a young, single mom, Ms. Blanton said, I know its very stressful for her but she tries as best she can, shes very motivated. Estero resident Laura Fagan has served as a Childrens Network family mentor for several years as well as a Guardian ad Litem, a court appointed child advocate. Basically you end up spending more time with them (the parents) than say a case manager would, Ms. Fagan said. You develop an understanding of the situation. You become a resource. Maybe you help them brainstorm about different issues. Each family is unique in their needs, she found. It could be where can someone get more food, the food stamps arent stretching far enough. It could be diapers. There was a situation where it sounded like the child had behavioral issues, and I was able to find a contact person where that behavior could be assessed. Theres a lot of need and finding the right resources, you can kind of feel overwhelmed, especially some of these parents who have few resources. They struggle maintaining an income. They may or may not have transportation. Theres a lot working against some of these families. And another thing is to be a cheerleader, someone who observes mom and dad doing all the right things and helping them to see, you can do this. One mom, I felt like one hour a week it was a chance for her to talk about what was going on, it was like her one hour. Sometimes we would brainstorm things but sometimes it just came down to listening. In another case, a landlord was going to raise the rent $50 a month for one of her families, a significant expense. They talked through the pluses and negatives of moving. In the reunifications there may be great joy as well as anxiety. In one situation she recalls a baby and an only child for whose parents reunification was just like way better than any Christmas you can imagine. Its just so exciting. But maybe you have another situation where you have five or six kids, and they may not all come back at the same time. And then you deal with the interactions between siblings who may or may not have been living with each other. Theres bus schedules and afterschool care and homework to be done and chores to be done. Its just, its a lot. Robin Rosenberg, an attorney and deputy director of the statewide advocacy group Florida Childrens First, believes the state should do more to work with parents to keep kids at home. So the state does not do a good job on that end, she said. Theres like this rescue mentality: Were going to save these poor children from their evil parents. And you read in the paper about horrible cases of abuse, but most of the children come into care because of neglect, substance abuse, mental health, domestic violence. And under all that is poverty. If the state and federal government incentivize helping families take care of their own, we would have less kids come into the child welfare system and the system could serve those who really need to be separated from their parents.

Here, we have a former Mr. Israel (circa the early s), who was on his way to New York City when he accidentally stumbled across our advertisement and decided to come see us. Now, Adam is a very outgoing, energetic and positive individual who had dreams of stardom in New York in theater or on TV. He felt very self-conscious about his smile and it had an impact on his approach to people and the roles he sought.

intermediate who felt his calling could be in the financial markets and on Wall Street. After a brief consultation where his concerns were addressed, Adam decided to immediately embark upon a new journey in his life, one that quite possibly could enhance his chances at climbing the ladder more quickly and achieving much more than he possibly would have. Adam was blessed to have all the attributes of a Hollywood star, except for his smile. He admitted to us that that was the only thing that he was not proud of. His concerns were crooked teeth, missing teeth and some decay. Otherwise he had a healthy mouth and his hygiene was impeccable. He had some TMJ concerns, but his main priority was his appearance. After all preliminary evaluations and radiographs were completed, Adam came in for his prep visit, at which his teeth were prepared and temporaries placed. These temporaries would be an estimation of how his final teeth would look. Upon completion of that visit, Adam was astonished at his new appearance with JUST TEMPS. His smile was brighter, whiter and larger than he had ever experienced. Previously, he would smile easily, but it was a controlled smile, not one that was totally uninhibited. Now, even with his temps, we saw just how much even a joyful Adam became positively effervescent right before our eyes Adam is a very gifted young man and he would, no doubt, be successful in any field he chose. He has appeared in several CNN documentaries and has starred in a National Geographic documentary in which he assumed the role of King Tutankhamun. He also appeared in episodes of Sex and the City. During his stint as an up-and-coming actor in Manhattan, he continued his schooling in the financial markets and was employed by some of the biggest investment firms on Wall Street. All of these very exciting careers happened after he had been treated at our office for what was then called a smile lift. Adam always was destined to be successful, but his new smile increased his self-esteem to new levels. The before and after photos of Adam speak volumes about the transition from a great appearance to a spectacular one. In his before photo it is clear that he felt timid about his smile.

They appreciate your thoughtfulness and you feel good about sharing your time, talents and efforts with loved ones. But there is one gift that is best not given to others, although it is sometimes unwittingly passed along the flu. Influenza, also known as the flu, is a contagious virus that can cause severe illness and even life-threatening complications. Flu viruses can cause high fever, headache, fatigue, dry cough, sore throat, runny nose, and body aches. Complications may include bacterial pneumonia, dehydration, and aggravation of chronic medical conditions, such as congestive heart failure, asthma or diabetes. The flu spreads when an infected person coughs, sneezes or speaks, and the virus goes into the air and other people inhale it. Every year, between 5 and 20 percent of Americans get sick from the flu. Most recover in one to two weeks, but approximately 200,000 people end up being hospitalized for flu-related complications. Those most likely to develop flu complications are children between the ages of six months and 19 years of age, adults age 50 and older, women who are pregnant during flu season, individuals living in nursing homes or long-termcare facilities, people with chronic health conditions, health care workers who have direct patient contact, and care givers of children less than 6 months old. The best way to prevent passing the flu along to your loved ones and others is to get an annual flu shot. The flu vaccine protects against the three viruses that are expected to be the most common each year and usually becomes available in the fall. It may be given either as a shot or nasal spray, depending on the persons age and any existing health conditions. You also can prevent the spread of the flu by avoiding close contact with people who are sick. If you are the one who is sick, try to keep your distance so others wont get the flu too. You also should stay home, if possible, from work or school. Good health habits are especially important during flu season, which typically lasts from about October through February. Remember to cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and then wash your hands often to protect against germs. Use an alcoholbased sanitizer if soap and water are not available. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth since germs are often spread when you lay a hand on something that is contaminated with the flu virus and then touch yourself. Try to get plenty of sleep, stay active, manage stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat healthy foods so your immune system stays strong. If you or a loved one start feeling the effects of the flu, youll receive the care you need as quickly as possible at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center. Youll have access to all the care you need, all in one place. Our emergency team includes emergency specialists, paramedics, medical technicians and specially trained doctors and nurses.

MONEY & INVESTINGThere are lessons to learn from the economic collapse of VenezuelaWith all of the positive economic news coming out of the U.S. in recent months, it is easy to forget that one of our neighbors to the south is not so fortunate. Venezuela is in the middle of one of the worst financial crises in modern history. The South American country is experiencing mind-blowing inflation, double-digit decreases in GDP, rampant unemployment and shortages of everything from food to medical equipment. How did Venezuela put itself in this position and what can their mistakes teach us about our economy going forward? Most economic crises are like a fire; you need a spark to start it, but just as importantly you need the right fuel to ensure that the spark ignites, and the fire can feed itself. In this case, the fuel to feed the fire was the economic and social policies started in 2010 by Populist President Hugo Chavez. In order to help the poor, the president first nationalized many of the key industries like oil production. He then used the income produced by these industries to build massive social programs that provided subsidized food and housing as well as free education and health clinics. For a while, the economy of Venezuela flourished as poverty decreased and SEE MONEY, A19

For more information, visit Fite Group opens Worth Avenue office standards of living increased. President Chavez became very popular with a large segment of the population and he used that popularity to eliminate presidential term limits and effectively took over the court system. He ruled as a virtual dictator until his death in 2013 when he was succeeded by President Nicols Maduro, who carried on most of Chavez policies. However, by this time, corruption within the government and out-of-control spending had brought rising inflation as well as basic shortages. But it was the plunge in global oil prices in 2015 that was the spark that started the massive crisis Venezuela faces today. Oil accounted for approximately 95 percent of Venezuelas exports and was the major source of funding for the government. As petroleum prices fell, the countrys income fell with it, yet the government would not cut spending. As a result, the government relied on massive deficit spending to fund its social programs. Inflation started to blossom. To fight inflation, the Venezuelan government enacted dramatic price controls. It also artificially increased wages to cushion workers from the effects of higher prices. This just made the countrys problems worse as companies just stopped producing goods and goods that were available were sold on the black market. Most companies also laid off any nonessential employees. By this year, inflation had grown to over 200,000 percent. At the same time, the Venezuelan currency plummeted, making imports too expensive for anyone but the ultra-rich. Currently, Venezuela is in a state of crisis that is shocking and sad. Health care is unavailable due to a complete lack of medicine and supplies, so citizens often die from very treatable diseases. Food is also in very short supply; many citizens are literally starving and looting garbage bins and dumpsters to find food. Crime is out of control within the country because many believe that they have no alternative in order to survive. What economic lessons can be learned from this crisis? First, I believe this shows that no government can live beyond its means forever. While deficit spending to fund social programs worked for a while in Venezuela, these programs collapsed when income dried up. Second, the crisis shows how significant government intervention in an economy can lead to a disaster. And finally, I believe this terrible situation demonstrates how a country that strays from democracy almost always leads itself to disaster.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2018 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE A21 EARL ON CARSBuy a new car without getting ripped off10 tips from a recovering car dealer1. Use a trusted third buyer buying service. The top three are True Car ( ), Consumer Reports (, and Costco ( ). Deal directly with the TrueCar, Costco and Consumer Reports-designated individuals in the their certified dealerships and never vary from the specific car you selected, or price quoted by any of the three. Never pay any additional fees unless they are government fees for sales tax and the license plate. 2. Ignore all car dealer and car manufacturer advertisements. Its almost impossible to buy or lease a new car for the advertised price. Either its simply untrue or theres something hidden (in the fine print) that makes the car much more expensive. Do your own research online., Edmunds. com and (Kelly Blue Book) are accurate sources of information for fair selling prices. 3. Always get three bids for your trade-in. Car dealers love to buy cars directly from owners for their used car lots. Shop the value of your trade-in with three car dealers of the same make as your trade-in. Make an appointment with the used car manager and tell him you dont want to buy another car. Explain that youre down-sizing and just want to sell your car. Be sure that he knows that youre getting bids from two other dealers. CarMax is a good place to get a bid. 4. Check with your bank and/or credit union. Youll get a better interest rate and terms than the dealer will likely give you. The exception is with manufacturer-offered interest rates, but you often must forego a cash rebate for this. Your best bet may be to take the manufacturers cash rebate with a slightly higher interest rate from your bank or credit union. 5. Always compare out-the-door prices. Youll never get an out-the-door price the amount you can hand the dealer and drive the car home with unless you demand it, and you still might not get it. Every other price you see advertised or quoted is plus a lot more money. You typically wont see the true out-the-door price until youre in the business office signing stacks of papers. Typical hidden price additions are dealer fees by different names, like tag agency fee, electronic filing fee, dealer services fee, doc fee, notary and closing fee, administrative fee... 6. Consult Consumer Reports before you choose the new car you will buy. Consumer Reports annual auto issue is priceless and something to consult. You dont have to buy the safest, most fuel efficient, lowest maintenance and repair car with the highest resale value, but at least you will know which cars they are. 7. Deal strictly online with car dealers, anonymously. Theres no good reason to visit a dealership and talk to a car salesman other than to test-drive the car youve selected and to pick it up. Dealing online, you wont be hounded by phone calls from car salesmen (dont give them your number or give them a phony one). Create a new, free address from Google or Microsoft. All dealers have Internet departments with sales people authorized to quote lower prices than the regular floor salesmen. Dealers will always give you a lower written price online than they will quote you face-to-face because they know if its too high, they may never hear from you again. 8. Never drive the new car home until you know your credit has been approved. You will be cajoled to drive the car home as soon as you sign the papers for two reasons: 1. You will fall in love with the car. 2. Often dealers send credit applications to multiple banks for approval (called shot-gunning). If you have marginal credit, youre likely to get an approval with exceptions. These usually entail higher interest, more down payment and shorter terms. Customers are far more inclined to agree to this after theyve taken their puppy (car) home and shown it to friends and neighbors. 9. Have a friend accompany you in the finance office. Dealers have a large menu of products they will try to sell you after youve bought the car. The best rule is to buy none of these until youve had time to study their value. Examples are extended warranties, maintenance plans, GAP insurance, road hazard insurance and lost key. Having a witness with you is some protection against this.10. You do not have to bring your car back to the dealer you bought from for service. Buy the car from the dealer that gives you the best price and bring your car for service to the dealer that gives you the best service. You can bring your car to an independent service company for maintenance or repairs if they arent warranty items. Keep good records of repairs and use the manufacturers owners manual as your guide for what must be done. Copies of Confessions of a Recovering Car Dealer are available online at dp/0985729511.

After all, the same 575 horsepower supercharged V8 that brings the F-type to supercar levels is also available in a sevenpassenger crossover. But the greatest sharing across JLR might just also be its most eco-friendly offering yet. The company recently fired its first shot into the full-electric production car world with the Jaguar I-Pace a 240mile range crossover. A recent spy shot also suggests that Land Rover will get a version with the Range Rover Sport that will run purely on battery power. But the most exciting news in its electric vehicle world has nothing to do with new cars. The classic Jaguar E-Type has often been awarded the most beautiful car in the world, and now it will be eligible for the most economic car in the world, too. JLR is offering full EV conversions for the Series I and Series II vehicles that were built between 1961 and 1971. Jaguar has not yet released the final performance figures for the E-lectric E-Type, but with the instant torque EVs produce, JLR assures this will be quicker than the original cars. The technology will largely come from the I-Pace. There is less space to retrofit the battery pack, so it will be less than half the size of the modern Jag. Still, the company expects to get an EV range of about 170 miles. Electrifying this classic shouldnt be a complete surprise to Jaguar fans. It showed off the E-Type Zero concept last year, and it was even driven by Britains Prince Harry during his wedding in May. What is extraordinary is the level of commitment Jaguar has put into the project. E-Type owners can arrange to have their cars electrified at the companys official Classic Works restoration facility in Coventry, England. Because these are classic cars with older build dates, the modifications will be likely roadlegal in most countries, including the U.S. (think of it in the same way hotrodders modify their cars, but with a much greener goal.) Those who dont already own a classic Jaguar can have the company locate one for them. If sending a vehicle to England seems like a daunting task, Jaguar also recently announced a new Classic Works restoration site in Savannah, Ga., opening within a year. JLR has not shared the price for the EV conversion. It means that this process is likely expensive, and no two conversions are going to be alike. After all, most E-Types are over a half-century old, and each one will likely need other individualized restoration work. Even after knowing the price for the conversion, it doesnt take into account the value/cost of the donor car. Jaguar produced over 57,000 Series I and Series II E-types. Of those, about 17,300 are the extra-desirable convertibles. It has created an interesting place in the market where a roadster is not difficult to locate, but even the cheapest complete examples will be above $50K. Furthermore, an iconic Series I with the sleekest lines and covered headlights cost well into six-figures. Because the E-Type is such a valuable car, the EV retrofit will be fully reversible, and Jaguar Classic Works will even offer preservation options for the gaspowered drivetrain. None of the less expensive Series III convertibles are currently eligible for the EV conversion, but there are some options for those who want to go green on a tighter budget. Prime examples of the Series I and Series II coupe and 2+2 start at about $30K. Since this package is designed to replace the 4.2-liter inlinesix motor, other classic Jaguars can also be retrofitted with the electric motor. Fans of everything from the Mark X full-size sedan to the sporty XJ Coupes might take some interest in paying for an electric conversion. The drawback is the E-Type was conceived as a lightweight sports car. Anything else getting electrified will likely be heavier, and therefore, the range will be impacted. In total, electrifying the iconic E-type feels like a very thoughtful execution from Jaguar. It has taken the time to come up with a solution where one of the worlds most beautiful classics gets to find a productive home in modern times. It creates a new avenue for technology and admiration, and at the same time, it never irreversibly changes an enthusiasts established hero.

Norton names successor to retiring director, CEONew leadership is coming to the Norton Museum of Art. The museums board of trustees has announced that art historian and curator Elliot Bostwick Davis has been appointed director and CEO to succeed Hope Alswang, who is retiring March 1, after leading the Norton for nine years. Ms. Davis comes to the Norton from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (MFA), where for the past 18 years she has spearheaded all aspects of one of the worlds top collections of the art of the Americas. She will assume the directorship March 2. She will join the Norton shortly after the museum opens its 59,000-squarefoot addition. Widely respected as a scholar and curator, Elliot is also an innovator in making the art of the Americas a more inclusive field and making museums more active and engaged in their communities, Harry Howell, chairman of the Norton Museum of Arts board of trustees, said in a statement. As our institution begins to grow into its new wing, we know that Elliot will create a vision for the Norton that meets our aspirations of being one of the nations leading art museums. It is an honor to become the next director of the Norton Museum of Art at this time of historic transformation, Ms. Davis said in the statement. I look forward to working with all members of the Norton community trustees, staff, friends and members as we strive to broaden the role of the art museum in contemporary culture. I view the Norton as a place of inspiration, creativity and excellence, and one that will nurture even greater connections to audiences of all ages and walks of life, both in Palm Beach County and beyond. Since 2000, Ms. Davis has led the MFAs Art of the Americas department as the John Moors Cabot Chair, charged with responsibility for one of the worlds preeminent collections of paintings, decorative arts and sculpture from North, Central and South America. During her tenure, Ms. Davis created a new and innovative paradigm for presenting American art in a global context and expanded the breadth of artistic representation from across the Americas with important acquisitions of art by women, African-Americans, Native Americans, folk and outsider artists, as well as paintings and decorative arts from the Spanish Colonial period. She led the curatorial team that created the installation of the Art of the Americas Wing, which opened in November 2010 and has nearly 5,000 objects on view in 53 galleries. She had an active role in the MFAs capital campaigns and has authored 20 publications and curated 15 exhibitions. Ms. Davis received her Ph.D., M.A., and M. Phil in art history and archaeology from Columbia University. She also earned an M.A. in liberal studies from New York University, and her A.B. cum laude in art history and archaeology from Princeton University. DAVIS

Change can be scary and when it comes to careers no more so than when it comes to the fickle nature of the music industry, where there are no guarantees. But for Darius Rucker, the creative transition he made into full-fledged country music star is one that started a decade ago and continues to go full throttle. Last year saw the release of When Was the Last Time, his seventh studio album and the fifth country music record hes released since putting out Learn to Live in 2008. Ten years in, Mr. Rucker has been fully embraced by the Music Row community, a development no more fully realized than the fact that he was asked to join the Grand Ole Opry about five years ago. Currently on tour with co-headliners Lady Antebellum and opening act Russell Dickerson that pays a visit to Coral Sky Amphitheatre on Sept. 29, the South Carolina native doesnt take the honor lightly, particularly given how driven hed been to become a country artist following his ridiculously successful run as front man for 1990s roots-rock band Hootie & the Blowfish.ARTS & ENTERTAINMENTPALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY | SECTION BWWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COMWEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2018 BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@ oridaweekly.comSeptember is a perfect time to introduce your child to the wonders of theater when the Kravis Center hosts Lightwire Theaters presentation of the beloved classic tale The Ugly Duckling at 10 a.m. Sept. 29.

COLLECTORS CORNER scott SIMMONS My young childhood was a happy time. Fort Myers was beginning to boom, and if I was lucky, someone would take me to the Southwest Florida Fair at Terry Park. I loved the rides Grandma, or my mother and dad, would take me on the merry-go-round, and once I was older, I could ride the Ferris wheel, from which you could see the Caloosahatchee River to the north and downtown Fort Myers to the west. I have not been to the fair in decades, but back then, the agricultural exhibits were as important to attendees as the midway. And amid the agricultural displays, the 4H exhibits, the childrens artwork and displays by local merchants, you also saw Seminole and Miccosukee women selling their wares colorful patchwork jackets and skirts and the charming dolls, made of palmetto fiber and dressed in tiny patchwork frocks. To my 5-year-old eyes, the members of the tribes, who came over from Brighton and up from Immokalee, were monumental in stature. The only thing missing from the womens full skirts was hoops to make them appear even larger. The dolls they made seemed like miniature versions of the women themselves. The dolls were a tradition that began early in the 20th century, when tribal women first began making the dolls to sell to tourists traveling the newly built Tamiami Trail. The earlier dolls made for the tourist trade are quite elaborate, with patchwork outfits and embroidered faces. Some dolls have articulated arms and legs and sculpted, dimensional noses; most are a simple doll whose body is concealed by the fanciful dress. The dolls themselves were simple affairs. The artists cut palmetto fiber and wrapped it and stitched it around a filling. Then they embroidered the faces. The eyes are two horizontal white stitches, intersected by black stitches that form pupils. The mouths are single red stitches, though sometimes, youll see two red stitches separated by single white stitch to suggest a smile. Black cotton broadcloth forms their coifs; later dolls sport tresses of thread and floss. The tribes began using patchwork on doll clothing in 1933, when Deaconess Harriet Bedell started working with the Seminole and Miccosukee at the Glade Cross Mission in Everglades City, according to the Florida Museum of Natural History. The deaconess encouraged them to Bought: Wildwood Antique Mall, 5100 S. Cleveland Ave., Fort Myers; or 703-7151. The Price: $3 apiece. The Skinny: I literally jumped for joy when I saw a table packed with 15 Seminole dolls, ranging in size from about 3 inches to 8 inches tall. I was even more excited when I saw they were priced at $3 apiece and marked as Peruvian dolls. Many of the dolls I bought date from the 1930s. Their clothing is made of rudimentary patchwork and their jewelry is made of colorful cut-glass beads. The Seminole and Miccosukee tribes still make and sell dolls, but its fun to find older examples one even bears a faded cotton tag reading Seminole. Collectors place a premium on the older dolls, and I like that each one has its own story to tell. If only the dolls could talk. THE FIND:A collection of Seminole dollsVintage Seminole dolls smile across the decadesmake patchwork and name their designs. She thought this would make their work more appealing to tourists, with designs of Fire, Rain and Rain and Storm. Rickrack, used later in the production of the dolls, was not allowed at first because Bedell thought it was unauthentic, according to the museum. The tribal artists still make and sell patchwork clothing and dolls. Each time I see an example of their work, I am transported to 1960s Fort Myers and I remember that someone cared enough to take me to the fair. And, like the dolls, I smile across the decades at the memory. The tallest of these Seminole dolls measures 8 inches. It dates from the 1930s.SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLY

B6 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2018 PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYcalled Stars of Broadway. Mark Alexander, executive director of Palm Beach State College Theaters, said this upcoming season at the Duncan is designed to build on the success the venue has enjoyed for many years, focusing on high-quality events. Palm Beach County is made up of diverse people and tastes in the arts, he said. We have so much that people can choose from, be it Broadway, classical music, the visual arts and dance. I just want to make sure we offer something for almost everyone in the community to sample. High up on the list, Mr. Alexander added, is a commitment to modern dance. Our modern dance series, which is the hallmark of what the Duncan is known for in the community and in fact regionally, throughout the Southeast is something were very proud of, Mr. Alexander said. We continue to bring in what we consider to be some of the finest modern dance companies in the U.S. and around the world. This season will be no less auspicious as Jessica Lang Dance (Jan. 11-12), Hubbard Street Dance Chicago (Feb. 1-2), Viva Momix (March 1-2) and the Paul Taylor Dance Company (March 22-23) will all make appearances on the Duncans stage. Although each of these celebrated companies deserves recognition and enthusiastic attendance, Mr. Alexander said, the Paul Taylor Dance Company might provide the most poignant experience for local audiences in light of some sad news that lately jolted the worldwide dance community. Im sure youve heard of Mr. Taylors recent passing, Mr. Alexander said. Were all very saddened by the loss of this giant in the field of dance and we have had a very rich history with his company over the last seven years. They are an amazing troupe and we want to see the genius of Paul Taylor celebrated for years to come. Paul programmed what pieces would be performed at the Duncan himself only a few months ago and we will be presenting the program that he specifically chose for the Duncan Theatre. The Duncans new series, Stars of Broadway, is the result of a concerted effort to keep its programming fresh. The idea behind this series is to highlight some of the greatest voices on Broadway today. First up is Mandy Gonzalez, star of the Tony Award-winning show Hamilton and known for her performance as Elphaba in the Broadway hit Wicked. Ms. Gonzalez brings her tour, Fearless, to the Duncan on Feb. 4. The show features songs from her album of the same name. Lin-Manuel Miranda, who created Hamilton, produced the Fearless album, Mr. Alexander said. Theres a lot of excitement about Mandy and we feel the community should have a chance to see her. Josh Young will follow on March 29 with a salute to Andrew Lloyd Webber and his music. Mr. Young is taking his show across the U.S., celebrating some of the composers most iconic songs. Josh was a Tony nominee for his role as Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar a few years ago, Mr. Alexander said. Hes devoting his entire concert to the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber, which I think a lot of people will be interested in seeing. The Weekend Family Fun Series offers live, Saturday morning productions of childrens classics. Appropriate for families with children between the ages of 3-10, these shows are designed to expose young people to the arts in a live theater setting. This is a series that has been going on for about 20 years now, Mr. Alexander said. Were very proud of the fact that through this series we play a small part in bringing families together for an hour or so. Each program is based on a music event like Dan Zanes and Friends (Dec. 8), which connects audiences to forgotten music of the past, or a spectacle like Erths Prehistoric Aquarium Adventure (Jan. 19), an immersive experience that invites you to jump in and explore unknown ocean depths where prehistoric marine reptiles lived eons ago. Its all about lighting a spark in a young person that a theater experience is something they might want to pursue further. The Classical Caf Series, performed in the more intimate 122-seat Stage West Theater adjacent to the Duncan, is composed of ensembles or recitals. These feel like living room concerts, Mr. Alexander said. Thats how close the audience is to the artists on stage. The acoustics in Stage West are fantastic. Series events include the Maxwell Quartet (Jan. 23), pianist Julian G (Feb. 6), cellist Natalie Clein (March 20) and the Goldstein-Peled-Fiterstein Trio (April 3). Fans of doo wop, the golden oldies and even some of todays hits will enjoy The Bronx Wanderers (Jan. 14), who take their audience on a journey thrugh Rock n Rolls American songbook. Finally, the Mix Tape Music Series, which features music of the 70s and 80s, will feature Mary Gaines Bernard Celebrates the Life and Music of Donna Summer (Jan. 16), Stayin Alive: One Night of the Bee Gees (Feb. 19) and Love Is A Rose: Celebrating the Music of Linda Ronstadt (March 28). We looked for people bringing oldies and the music of the 70s and 80s back to life again, Mr. Alexander said. We all know that music is a big part of growing up for all of us and those of us who were brought up on the music of that time will see this as the perfect opportunity to revisit that music. The Duncan Theatre and Stage West Theatre are on the campus of Palm Beach State College at 4200 Congress Ave. in Lake Worth. Ticket prices vary per series and individual event. Season subscriptions are available to six different types of series, starting at $90. Individual memberships start at $100 providing benefits such as priority seating, advanced notice on new performances and ticket discounts on select Duncan Theatre presented events.

The first time I played was when my first single [Dont Think I Dont Think About It] was out. I still remember that time vividly. It was amazing to be there and to be a part of that and to know that I was getting a little foothold into country music and getting to play the Grand Ole Opry, youre about to do that, he recalled in a late August phone interview. I dedicated myself to the Opry instantly. I told my management that I wanted to play the Opry as much as I can and I did. I still play a lot, of course. Four or five years ago when they came and asked me to become a member, it meant so much to me. It meant that I wasnt just being accepted, but that I was part of country music. It was amazing. Having already topped the Billboard magazine Hot Country Songs charts with a number of singles, Mr. Rucker was looking to change things up with When Was the Last Time. For this go-round, he changed producers from longtime friend Frank Rogers and instead tapped Ross Copperman (Keith Urban/Kenny Chesney) to produce. When Was the Last Time debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard Top 200 (becoming his fifth Top 10 album) and saw it simultaneously land at No. 2 on the Top Country Albums chart as well. The first two singles, the semi-autobiographical ballad, If I Told You, and the ebullient followup, For the First Time. both topped the Billboard Country Airplay chart. the third single, a cover of Straight to Hell holds special meaning for Rucker. A fan of the band Drivin N Cryin and the song since it was released on that groups 1989 album, Mystery Road, Mr. Rucker had wanted to record the song for quite some time. It was a sentiment held by close friend and Lady Antebellum founding member Charles Kelley, who suggested the same to his tour mate. Ive been wanting to record that since I came to Nashville. I go back to 1989 when that song was released and loving it so much. I thought about cutting it on pretty much every record that Ive put out, Mr. Rucker said. So I was making this record when Charles Kelley texted me out of the blue and said he was just listening to Drivin N Cryin and he thought I should cut that Straight to Hell song. I said, Dude, Ive been thinking about cutting that for 10 years now. His next text was to say that I should let him sing on it too. Thats where that all start ed. Cut ting it with (guests) Jason [Aldean] and Luke [Bryan] made it a totally different kind of thing. It became a big old fun drinking song. Fans can expect the upbeat vibe of Mr. Ruckers latest single to carry over to the stage. Having cut his teeth on the college circuit when he was coming out of South Carolina with Hootie & the Blowfish, its the only way he knows how to perform. We have a large party, man. Our shows are high energy and a lot of fun. Playing with Lady Antebellum every night, you have to go and deliver because those guys are going to deliver, he said with a laugh. Its a great show. I love watching them and I love watching Russell [Dickerson]. If you come out and see us and you like the music at all, youll leave there very happy, I promise.

B8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2018 PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY VINOLearn some Italian wines, that is Its no secret that Americans love Italian wines. Because we spend so much time in Italian restaurants, and because we love the cuisine, its only natural that we usually reach for a bottle of Chianti or something similar to complement our meals. And its also no secret that Chianti and the surrounding regions are the wine regions best known to most of us. There, and also perhaps the Piedmont area where those tasty Barolos and Barberas come from. OK, and maybe well be surprised by a bottle of some yummy red like Corvina from the Veneto, the area west and north of Venice. Well, its time to expand our Italian horizons just a little bit. First, as I may have mentioned in the past, Italy is the only country in the world where wine is made in every single region. There are between 17 and 18 regions (depending how you count them) which means that places like Sicily, Apulia and even Sardinia deserve some attention. There are discoveries to be made. A recent revelation is a red wine called Teroldego, which is mainly grown in the Dolomites, the mountains due north of Venice by about 150 miles. In fact, the region is closer to Austria than to Italy. This is a charming medium-bodied red with soft tannins and flavors of dark berry fruits, like wild cherry, cassis and blueberry. In a way its a bit like a Shiraz that doesnt smack you in the face. Its softer, rounder and much more subtle. One of the new standouts among Teroldego winemakers is Elisabetta Foradori, so look for that name on the label. Its a new favorite at our house. Like most forms of life, grapes can become extinct. People stop cultivating them and they just sort of go away. One of those is a red called Piculit Neri, but its making a comeback thanks to one single dedicated (obsessed?) winemaker named Emilio Bulfon. He rediscovered this ancient varietal, and Im glad he did. He has also revived other varietals and is actively promoting them. The wine has flavors of wild berries, with hints of smoke and vanilla. You might also sense some herbaceous notes. Its a bit tannic, which makes it an excellent match for meat dishes and some poultry. Back to the Teroldego. Heres our recommendation, along with some other favorites.Foradori Teroldego Vignetti Delle Dolomite 2014 ($24) The deep garnet color in the glass promises richness on the palate with an unmistakably Italian nose of sweet black fruit, red flowers and hints of earth. The wine is very round and soft on the palate, with no clinging tannins. There is warm, dark cherry, and a persistent finish that goes on and on. We bought a case of it. WW 94. Chateau Montelena Zinfandel Calistoga 2015 ($39) While this winery is best known for its Chardonnay, the Zin is definitely worth a try. Very true to type, with smoke, bramble, chocolate and wood notes nicely balanced by bold black fruit flavors. WW 90. Bruno Paillard Champagne NV $50 A premiere example of what Champagne is supposed to be. Drinks above its price point. Fine mousse, with tangy notes of minerals and lemon. We finished the whole bottle. WW 94. Lucas & Lewellen Hidden Asset Red Blend Santa Barbara 2016 ($29) An interesting mlange of Malbec, Merlot, Syrah and a few other varietals, the 16 months of oak aging impart complex flavors of red and black raspberry, spice and currant. Tannins are lush and rounded, for a lingering finish. WW 92. Ask the Wine Whisperer Q. Why is there sediment in my wine? Denise B., Bonita SpringsA. The solids you might see in a wine bottle consist of pigments that drop out of suspension as the wine ages. Also, the tannins sometimes bond together and settle to the bottom. These particles are harmless but its best to stand the bottle upright for a few days, then decant the wine. You can also buy a wine funnel to strain out the sediment. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer. His book Ask the Wine Whisperer, has just been published.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 20-26, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B11The Dish: Napolitano pizza The Place: Al Fresco, Palm Beach Par 3 Golf Course, 2345 S. Ocean Blvd., Palm Beach; 561-273-4130 or www.alfrescopb. com. The Price: $20 The Details: There is not a bad seat to be had at Al Fresco it could serve frozen dinners and folks would come just for the ocean views. But fortunately, the food matches the views. As you might have guessed, the menu skews toward Italian pasta, pizza, seafood. Id had seafood (the lobster salad cannot be beat) and pasta, but had not tried the pizza before. As with Neapolitan pizzas, the crusts are thin and crisp. This pizza had a sauce of crushed San Marzano tomatoes, dollops of buffalo mozzarella and plenty of aromatic basil. The sauce was fresh and tangy, and the mozzarella was creamy. And that view? Amazing. Sc ott Simmons, s simmons@florida weekly.comTHE DISH: Highlights from local menus Tunes and a table A trio worth noting3JANSTHREE FOR2 MAXIS LINEUP103 S. U.S. Highway 1, Jupiter. 561-741-3626; Its a tight fit in here most nights, (37 seats) sometimes even a wait and can get loud. Half the patrons are at the bar waiting to get dinner at the Food Shack next door. Local bands take the small stage; a great vocalist last time we were there, with 0s, s and s top hits. Seafoods the thing: Order his eggrolls, one of the specials bowls, and grouper cheeks. The daily tacos are just right for late night.1 DOUBLE ROADS TAVERN251 U.S. Highway 1, Jupiter. 561-203-7061; It helps that the owner is the Vince of Big Vince and the Phat Cats and knows food. A not-too-spicy gumbo is a favorite, as is the calamari, and the spinach-artichoke dip. A burger or short-rib slider big sellers, too. The tunes range all over, but electric rock is a mainstay. Open jams are on Sunday (jazz) and Monday (acoustic). Before the bands, hell spin any vinyl on the walls, too or bring your own. Outdoor seating, too.3 COPPER BLUES ROCK PUB & KITCHENCityPlace, 550 S. Rosemary Ave., West Palm Beach. 561-404-4104; Brews up front, blues on stage, and good grub on the tables. The food is modern bar bites: Charcuterie board (if you order this, also get the pickled veg jar), root-based salad, lobster roll, brick-oven pizzas and kimchi pork tacos, to name a few. Live music nightly ranges in blues, electric rock, new rockabilly and more. It can get loud, but theres seating outside on the patio. Jan Norris, FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE COURTESY PHOTO Musicians like Albert Castiglia perform at Double Roads Tavern, near Indiantown Road in Jupiter. Barbecue, Cuban spots come to Grandview Public Market SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLY The West Palm Beach food hall Grandview Public Market is expanding, adding a barbecue spot from a South American taqueria chef, as well as a Cuban eatery whose flagship is in Los Angeles. Cholo Soy Cochina chef Clay Carnes opened Cholo BBQ at the market earlier this month. Awesome barbecue is how the chef describes the place. Hes had it planned for a long time following the success of his taco spot on South Dixie Highway that serves up tacos made with housemade fresh tortillas, grilled corn and more. Smoked brisket platter or sandwich is the specialty. Its the chefs favorite. Hes prepared it at dinners out on Swank Farm, where hes one of several guest chefs. He thinks there is a dearth of brisket in the area. Hes also cooking ribs, chicken, sausage another rare find at barbecue spots locally and pork for pulling in a wood smoker daily, using house-made dry rubs to accent the smoked meats. More of his style: The menu is simple with just four sandwiches, all on brioche and topped with slaw; five platters that come with two sides and a pickle and roll; and a side choice of beans, slaw, roasted corn salad or potato salad. Another new player in the food hall is El Cochinito, which moves into part of the Clares Chicken space. The Cuban restaurant hails from Los Angeles, where its been family owned since 1988. Daniel Navarro, grandson of the founder, is chef. Though being a CIAtrained chef, and having worked under world renowned chefs such as Jose Andres, hes carrying on his grandmothers traditional Cuban fare with roast pork and black beans, and whats now known as the Worlds Best Cuban Sandwich. It brought home that title at the International Cuban Sandwich Festival in Ybor City this spring. Other stacked sandwiches are counted as signature items, along with tropical fruit shakes and flan. The markets 14 food and drink vendors and home-decor shop are open daily. Grandview Public Market is at 1401 Clare Ave., West Palm Beach. Its open daily 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Restaurants vary in times open. Check online at www. comes to Warehouse DistrictAlso new in the Warehouse District off Old Okeechobee Road is the microbrewery, Steam Horse Brewing. Brought about by Fran Andrewlevich and Matt Webster, creators of Tequesta Brewing Company and Twisted Trunk Brewing, the 6,000foot industrial space along the railroad opened last month to cheers from the brewers fans. The massive space sports a taproom, and huge bar designed around a vintage railroad theme. Iron, railroad lanterninspired lights, and ticket-window like openings to view the shiny steel tanks in the business end. Big-screen TVs televise games, and there is live music weekends. Trending craft brew styles are on tap, including a hoppy New England-style double IPA, red IPAs, and sours, Boozy Berry Wheat a fruit-wheat ale, and of course, a Porter. The staple beer is the canned Steam Horse lager, a Euro-style medium-body lighter brew (in geekspeak: ABV 5.3 percent; IBU 30). No food available on site, but they point visitors to the aforementioned Grandview Public Market. Steam Horse Brewing is at 1500 Elizabeth St., West Palm Beach. Phone 561623-0091; www.steamhorsebrewing. com. Open 1-11 p.m. weeknights and Sunday; till midnight Friday and Saturday. Closed Mondays.In briefNew in the old Mrs. Smokeys BBQ spot in Lake Park is the Lake Park Grill. Burgers, wings, sandwiches and salads are on the menu, as well as breakfast; it opens at 7 a.m. ... Talk continues, but isnt firm, about another Yardbird Southern Table & Bar opening in CityPlace. That would put two Southern-influenced restaurants in the mixed-use plaza. The Regional now rules that kingdom of deviled eggs, fried chicken and bourbon cocktails. Yardbird, with locations in L.A., Vegas and Singapore, is from the 50 Eggs restaurant group out of Miami that includes Swine Southern Table & Bar, Lime Fresh Mexican Grill and the new Spring Chicken. ... Another dish: The Brass Ring will be bringing its famous burgers and wings to a third outpost in Jupiter in the old Burrito Bros. spot at 1150 Indiantown Road. Here, it will add liquor and seafood. Its original location is on U.S. Highway 1 on the North Palm Beach-Lake Park line. A second is in Royal Palm Beach on Okeechobee Boulevard.
