Dixie Hwy. 117 NE 5th Ave. 561.249.6000 561.278.0886 www.excentricities.com Friday, September 28th&Saturday, September 29th NORTH PALM BEACH JUPITER 1400 Old Dixie Hwy 225 E. Indiantown Rd. 561.845.3250 561.748.5440 COMMENTARYGreat leadershipIts been eight years since Gov. Rick Scott took up the mantle of leadership in my state eight beautiful years of the early 21st century that have banged on by like a fast train, 2010 to 2018. R.I.P., sweet days. And now Gov. Scott is aimed at the United States Senate like a loosed arrow that will either hit its target or not in fewer than 40 days. You have until Oct. 9 to make that happen one way or another, by registering to vote. What an extraordinary change hes wrought for Floridians this decade, even just on my road alone a dead-ender populated by people, cows, a creek, a lot of woods and a herd of pickups. Here, 50-year-old palmettos and 150-year-old live oaks encircle us all, standing in awe of the Sunshine Staters weve become. Gov. Scott has so profoundly inspired us, as great leaders do George Washington, Mahatma Gandhi, Chesty Puller and Martin Luther King Jr. all come to mind that we no longer litter on my road. And neither do a lot of other people both east and west of Lake Okeechobee. No sir, we get rid of our stuff (urban runoff, septic run-off, agricultural run-off, big-development run-off) in appropriate, Gov. Scott-approved trash dumps, like the Caloosahatchee or the St. Lucie rivers. Gov. Scott has allowed us to do that for some time now, ever since he stiff-armed the federal Environmental Protection Agency, preventing clean water regulations from being enforced in Florida, and ever since he amputated the states Department of Community Affairs, which used to check every big development proposal in Florida to make sure the plan wouldnt ruin water or destroy wetlands that protect the rest of us, before permitting it. Gone. Tossed in the boneyard courtesy of the governor. Weve become more peaceful, too, under his leadership at least out here in the country. We no longer shoot up the woods near our houses, every day. Now were on a three-times-a-week schedule, near as I can figure. Not because weve lost our taste for the sharp pop of semiautomatic weapons morning and evening or that bracing smell of (not just orange blossoms from nearby groves) cordite; we havent. But simply because now, we can wander all over the state with our weapons of choice, and we know it. And we can shoot anybody we please using AR-15s or Glock handguns equipped with high capacity magazines, too, as long as we just call it Stand Your Ground. Thank you, Gov. Scott. The liberals can have other programs for their ground somewhere else, like California plowing your ground, or planting your ground, or weeding your ground (take your choice of meanings, in California) or harvesting your ground, perhaps but not here. Here, the governor has unequivocally supported Stand Your Ground, like most of his fellow Republican legislators. Thats leadership. As long as Marion Hammer says it is. Shes the NRA lobbyist, a former president of the NRA, instrumental in creating Stand Your Ground laws in Florida and elsewhere. She even got to participate in both Senate and House committee meetings following the Valentines Day tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. She had to show up in person to make sure those survivors couldnt reach the hearts of Republican legislators when the stricken students begged them to do something, like outlaw high-capacity magazines.Those men and women looked like deer in the headlights until she tightened their resolve. You want to get rid of high-capacity magazines and restrict them to 10 rounds or less? Youre a pinko, socialist lefty. You hate the Second Amendment. And whats more, if Marion says youre a pinko, socialist lefty and you hate the second A., youll never get elected again in this state, whether its true or not. Gov. Scott, I once learned, wears cowboy boots made by the same Texas bootmaker who handcrafts boots for George W. Bush, Rick Perry and other notable elephants. If my neighbors knew that and wanted to fork over the significant cash required to get such a pair of boots, theyd probably order them, too. As it is, however, there are other ways they can follow the leader: just shutting up about climate change, for example. Out here in the country, off the beaches and far from communities where king tides and flooding are becoming increasingly common and costly, many of us recognize that Gov. Scotts seemingly oddball order to state employees never to use the term climate change was delivered merely to protect our children from nightmares. Its because hes a kind-hearted, very nice guy. We all know that. Just as kids used to have nightmares when they thought the Soviets were going to nuke their elementary schools, children today envision floods or fires sweeping through their homes because of climate change. And what great leader would want children to suffer such fears? Not Gov. Scott. If we just dont mention climate change, the children wont know. Neither will business investors in Florida or coastal homebuyers. Thank you, again, sir. How else has the governor helped us prepare for the future, like every great leader? The ways are too numerous to list here, but let me name one. The governor seized the day after Donald Trumps election to the White House two years ago and virtually handpicked his successor, another Trump lover, U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis. Now thats some leadership for you. Rep. DeSantis even builds Trumpstyle walls out of play blocks in his living room with his children, weve learned. Wouldnt it be great to have four more years of such a governor in Tallahassee, to follow Gov. Scotts model of great leadership? roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com Before AfterCALL Today 561.575.5599Three Palms CenterPGAdentistryjupiter.comComplete Care in Our State-of-the-Art Facility $250VALUEComplimentary Consultation or 2nd OpinionIncludes Exam & Full-Mouth X-RayChange your smile, change your life!Dr. Joseph Russo is one of only 385 dentists worldwide to hold an Accreditation by the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AAACD).

A4 NEWS WEEK OF SEPT. 27-OCT. 3, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY OPINIONStinky cheeseThe human tragedy and cataclysmic damage of devastating storms like Florence, Harvey and Maria are natural disasters that mercifully divert the news emphasis, just for a while, from the unnatural disaster that is the American political system. I dont wish to be flippant about tragic and costly storms, so Ill spare you the glib analogies, other than to describe an American society that is being overwhelmed by floods of distrust. The destruction is not just the result of one man that is, the demagogic, grossly incapable Donald Trump. Instead, its an accumulation over the decades of amoral self-enrichment by those in power. It has obliterated any sense of community, the belief that we are all in this together. No longer do we trust our institutions or the people in charge of them. Thats fertile ground to someone like Trump, whose election was in large part due to millions of people being so angry at being defrauded that they were willing to take a chance on someone whos obviously unfit, just to spite the system that, in their minds, had betrayed them. Youd think those opposing him would have learned a lesson from how he took advantage of their hubristic paralysis. And some of them have. Unfortunately, its the wrong lesson: Some of the leading lights of the Democratic Party are dimming. Theyve clearly decided to play the same game as he does, to out-Trump Trump. Granted, Michelle Obamas When they go low, we go high remark was naive, at best. Still, with apologies to Michelle, be prepared to mud wrestle in the pigpen. However, When they get sleazy, dont be cheesy. Thats exactly what Sens. Cory Booker and Kamala Harris did. Theyve both been afflicted by the Democratic presidential bug and were out to make a name for themselves as they aggressively grilled Trumps Supreme Court wannabe Brett Kavanaugh. Booker was chomping at the bit at the hearing, and announced that he would risk expulsion from the Senate by publicly disclosing a confidential email. It turned out that he knew full well that the email had been cleared for public consumption. Cheesy. But no more so than Sen. Harris pathetically trying to intimidate a witness: Be careful with your answer, she said to Judge Kavanagh, before asking him if hed met with a Trump lawyer, which might have raised questions if she presented any evidence of wrong-doing. She did not. What she also did was quote Kavanaugh out of context on his abortion record, totally distorting what he had said. Not even cheesy. Velveeta maybe. Worst of all, the Democrats, namely Dianne Feinstein, really blew it when it came to handling make that mishandling the charge that Kavanaugh might have sexually assaulted a female student when they were both in high school in the 1980s. The accusations are murky and have only recently emerged, extremely late in Kavanaughs advise and consent process. The stakes are incredibly high. Supreme Court justices serve for life, so these serious accusations should have been thoroughly vetted long ago. Score another one for Democratic ineptitude, which is probably the main reason that Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans have any hope of staying in power to continue drowning this country. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN.Trump not benefiting from economic boomPresident Donald Trump is showing that its possible to preside over a period of peace and prosperity and still be notably unpopular. Over the past several months, Trump has opened even more of a wedge between the largely benign material conditions in the country and his own political standing, which is precarious and appears to be sliding backward. This isnt how its supposed to work. Republican politicos believed, reasonably enough, that last years tax cuts would stoke growth and create a good-news backdrop for Republicans in the midterms. The substantive part of this theory has worked swimmingly, with headlines about middle-class incomes increasing over $61,000 for the first time, blue-collar jobs growing at their fastest clip in 30 years, and small-business confidence reaching an all-time high. The only flaw is that the drumbeat of good news has coincided, lately, with a drop in Trumps numbers. In much of the recent polling, hes dipped back under 40 percent. He hasnt done this with any spectacular misstep. What Trump has done, predictably, week after week, is mess up the easy stuff. Its not hard through gritted teeth and insincerely, if necessary to say the appropriate things about an American hero upon his passing. Its not hard to limit your tweets on the morning of Sept. 11, for just a few hours, to the topic of the anniversary of the attacks. Its not hard to avoid attacking your own attorney general in public, in an escalating fashion meant to inflict the greatest possible humiliation. Its not hard to avoid throwing around the word TREASON loosely or to muse about changing the libel laws to exact retribution on your critics. Any president grapples with the fact that he cant control events; Trump grapples with the fact that he cant control himself. Its not as though any one thing the Stormy Daniels affair, the Cohen plea deal, the security-clearance controversy, the Omarosa book, etc., etc. is as consequential as its portrayed, but one damn thing after another adds up. Trump has an amazing ability, through the force of his personality and his mediagenic provocations, to blot out the sun. He wouldnt be president without this quality. Its just that, given the positive state of the country, less blotting and more sun are called for. Some caveats: Presidential popularity means something different in the age of Trump. He won election in 2016 with a favorable rating below 40 percent in many polls, so a return to that level may be less debilitating for him than prior presidents. Its not as though hes creating controversies in an otherwise placid environment. He is confronted with an inflamed opposition, an extremely hostile press corps and a wide-ranging, aggressive special counsel investigation. Finally, it is still possible that gardenvariety Republicans will find a way to distinguish themselves from Trump this year. All that said, business is booming, and yet the president who is presiding over the good times and signed the tax package that has boosted the recovery further isnt enjoying their full political benefit. An economic boom is a terrible thing to waste.

Full Physical Therapy Facility ON THE LINKSChip N Sip encourages women to learn golfGrowing the Game is one of many mantras and slogans of the Palm Beach Gardens-based PGA of America, which often refers to itself as the worlds largest working sports organization. The nearly 29,000 members, both men and women, include several hundred right here in Palm Beach County. They are administrators, teachers, merchandisers and players, and they are tasked with growing the game. It was suggested recently that greater effort should be made to introduce the game to more women and minorities so that the face of golf would begin to look more like the face of America. There are a couple of women at Abacoa Golf Club in Jupiter who seem to be taking seriously this mission and they are trying very hard to make something happen. Terri Dew is the wife of Robbie Dew, managing general partner at Abacoa, a privately owned public golf course. Susan Vail, based at Abacoa GC, has been a member of the PGA of America for 25 years and she also belongs to the LPGA Teaching and Club Professional Division. About eight years ago, Terri started what she called a Chip N Sip program at Abacoa with a handful of women and a series of four lessons. It was not a unique concept, she was to learn, as many other clubs nationwide had similar programs under a variety of names. By the fifth season we had 20 women coming out once a week and now were up to 400 members and an average of about 100 each week, Terri Dew says. Its been a learning experience for everyone. The Chip part includes instructions in various aspects of playing golfsupervised practice sessions from the back of the range at Abacoa and then a few tee times a couple of hours before sunset each Wednesday afternoon. The Sip should be self-explanatory: refreshments and socializing back at the clubhouse as the sun disappears somewhere beyond the nearby Floridas Turnpike. We try to have the women in groups based on their abilities, whether beginners or really good players, and everyone in between she added. This helps all of them, especially the new players. We want them all to feel comfortable with the others in their groups. Indeed, Abacoas learning center is used mostly by ladies and juniors. We always try to have something going on, Terri notes, whether holiday parties, charity events, trademarked logos, etc. It all helps the revenue flow for the club, she added. Susan Vail started her program, Pink Peg, late last year by introducing what quickly became the No. 1 ladies golf training app with private golf instruction, destination golf trips, education and digital resources, and logoed golf apparel and accessories. She encourages focus with such phrases as thats not important, or lets get this one close, or let it go, this swing is going to be perfect. And, she adds, Many of the best golfers in the world say that focus is the single most important mental skill needed to achieve consistency. Learning any new skill takes time, so try it out on the range first. It doesnt matter if youre learning a physical skill or a mental one, you need to practice to improve. So you find your mantra and test it during your next round. Womens golf is expected to receive a unique boost when Suzy Whaley likely becomes president of the PGA of America later this year. The director of instruction at Suzy Whaley Golf in Cromwell, Conn., she is the first woman ever elected to become an officer of the PGA. After serving two years as secretary, Ms. Whaley became the associations vice president at the annual meeting in November, 2016. She recently became the ninth woman, and 370th PGA member overall, to earn Master Professional membership status, her requisite essay being on Player Development. This is one of the great honors of my career, to reach the pinnacle of educational achievement from the PGA of America, she said. I truly hope to inspire and mentor other PGA members in their pursuit of Master Professional status, which represents a depth of knowledge and passion for the game and the business of golf. Her playing career was highlighted by victory a few years back in the Connecticut PGA Section Championship and a tee time in the PGA Tours tournament in Hartford, Conn. Her husband, Bill, is also is a PGA member and they have a winter home at PGA National. In May, Ms. Whaley was the keynote speaker in San Diego at an organization which has 15,000 women members. For the third straight year, Womens Golf Day events took place at numerous venues around the world on June 5. PGA professionals and clubs interested in hosting a Womens Golf Day event in 2019 should visit www.womensgolfday. com.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPT. 27-OCT. 3, 2018 A7 HEALTHY LIVINGBreast pain not necessarily an indication of cancerDo you feel pain in your breasts at some point during the month? If so, you are not alone. Breast pain is a common complaint among women and, while it is certainly uncomfortable, it is rarely a cause for concern. Breast pain often ranges from a generalized discomfort to a sharp burning sensation, and frequently gains intensity just before menstruation. While breast pain is fairly typical, it can be disconcerting and unsettling. The good news is that most breast pain is not associated with the presence of breast cancer and is usually benign. Breast tissue in women is quite sensitive to changing hormone levels. As the hormone level changes during the menstrual cycle, women can feel pain and discomfort. For some, our breasts are also sensitive to caffeine in beverages, foods and in some medications. Caffeine is known to stimulate breast tissue and cause pain or discomfort. Other causes of breast pain include breast cysts, infection, or joint pain that extends from the shoulders or ribs into the breasts. Persistent localized pain can be a rare sign of cancer. If you have unexplained breast pain that doesnt go away after one or two menstrual cycles or that continues after menopause, you should let your doctor know so you can have a full evaluation. While breast pain is often tied to hormonal fluctuations, there are steps you can take to help alleviate the pain. These include: Wear a supportive bra or sports bra when you are experiencing pain or discomfort. Also, make sure your regular bra is properly fitted. Apply a heating pad or ice packs. Heating pads or warm compresses often help some patients, while ice packs or cold compresses help others. Use whichever one works for you. Take ibuprofen or acetaminophen as directed on the label. Reduce your salt intake and increase water consumption. This will decrease fluid retention, which can cause breast pain and swelling. Abstain from products containing caffeine as much as possible. While caffeine does not cause fibrocystic changes in the breast, it may aggravate the pain. Try to avoid the following caffeinated products: Beverages like coffee, tea and sodas (Coke, Diet Coke, etc.) Chocolate Nonprescription medications: Anacin, Dexatrim, Doans pills, Dristan, Empirin compound, Excedrin, Midol, Neo synephrine Consider taking Vitamin E (400 IU a day) or evening primrose oil tablets, as they may help with pain. If you experience persistent breast pain and decide to seek medical evaluation to determine the cause, the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center, which is located on Jupiter Medical Centers Outpatient Campus at 2111 Military Trail, is here to help. Our state-of-theart facility houses the most advanced and sophisticated imaging and diagnostic equipment. As a board-certified and fellowshiptrained radiologist, I see patients at all stages of the breast health continuum every day. While breast pain is one of the chief complaints among my patients, and one that produces a tremendous amount of anxiety, it is almost always the result of a benign condition. Understanding the causes of most breast pain, how to minimize it, and what to watch for when it comes to your breast health can go a long way in reducing your stress and worry.

Panelists traditionally include scientists who are in different stages of their training, from postbaccalaureate students to postdoctoral fellows. 2018s Career Panel discussion explored many topics, including what inspired the scientists to choose a career in science, overcoming the challenges of being a woman in science, and what educational and research experiences got the researchers to the place that they are today. To participate in career day, teachers had to submit an application explaining how their students would benefit from the experience. Once selected, each school could choose 10 students to attend. The schools and teachers selected for 2018 included: Steven Weber and Tamica Williams, Village Academy; Mary Paramore, Marie Dupuy and Dr. Robert Grassemi, Inlet Grove High School; Shari Rodgers, Jupiter High School; Melinda Ogden, Atlantic Community High School; Marilyn Budensiek, Hobe Sound Christian Academy; Renee Szeliga, Benjamin School; Mira Dohnd, the Conservatory School of North Palm Beach; and Ofelia Barletta Chacon, Palm Beach Gardens High School.

They love the repetition, said owner Valerie Herskowitz. Calm and collected, the petite blond sitting in the front of the shop occasionally directs the workers in the small back room who are turning out products for cases.Two men in aprons wearing hairnets are studiously working in tandem, measuring out dough and placing small balls of it on cookie sheets. Theyre making toffee cookies. They are high-functioning adults on the spectrum.A third, a tall, dark-haired man who bounds into the front of the shop, hopping, skipping and grinning mischievously, is her son Blake, 27. Also on the autism spectrum, he is the reason for the shop, she said. Originally I started it as a fun activity, not a business. I had trained in the pastry world as a hobby, then I got serious about it. I had baked cakes, and did a lot of pastry work, but chocolate gave me serious feelings. So I trained to become a professional. Ms. Herskowitz was looking for something to do in her spare time away from her job as a speech therapist. So more for fun than profit, she opened the truffle business with sales by word of mouth. Soon she was selling at indoor markets, and then online in 2013, working out of her house. She had moved to Jupiter after closing her therapy center in Fort Lauderdale. At the same time, Blake had graduated from school, and with limited activities, started making things to eat for the family, she said. He showed an interest in what I was doing, so I let him help, she said. Soon he was helping in both the kitchen and with packaging. It was a way to get him off the couch. Its also about having inclusion in the community, she said. After schools no longer provide education for them, autistic and mentally challenged adults have few outlets for work, however small a job, or socialization. Shes doing her best to change that. Its part of her longtime activism in the autism world. Blake was diagnosed when he was 2, she said. I already knew. I had been working in it for 15 years. Weird irony at that point that my son would be autistic. Society was just learning about autism and the spectrum the depth of the disorder that presents in different ways with each individual. Those with autism frequently have difficulty with social skills, exhibit repetitive behaviors, and have trouble with speech and nonverbal communication. Programs outside of schools were nonexistent at the time. So she, along with other activist parents, started the National Autism Registry in 1999. It provides community-based support for autism, with recreation activities and socialization. Since he got involved in helping his mother with her business, she saw the change in him: He was motivated and felt useful. It gave him some importance. The business grew into more than just a hobby. Other parents involved in the special needs groups who heard about her work were saying, Id love if my son or daughter could come do it, she said. Soon, they were. A couple of adults who are on the low end of the spectrum would come over two or three times a week to help make truffles, package orders or help in other ways. I hired Cristian Panter and Michael Pagan as workers both are on the higher end of the spectrum, she said. So now I had two people on the payroll. Now, we definitely needed a commercial kitchen, she said. I also wanted to get Blake out of the house. She owned rental property, and sold it to finance the new shop. It was a very big decision, and maybe not the right one. I didnt use any loans. I can get some grants, but its not enough to run a business, to be honest. A lot of people dont know that grants only take you so far. Shes frank about the status: Its not a successful business at this point. I owned a therapy business, and it had to financially succeed.This isnt a business per se its a social enterprise. Shed like for it to be self-sustaining one day. But grants are running out. We train teens and get a grant for that. But it expires in three months. It frustrates her, since she spent a lot of time making connections with schools to recruit the special needs students who could train as apprentices here. We need to train them as teens, she said, since the adults that are brought in to work sometimes have issues. The shop has trained 16 teens this year so far. Ive put out feelers, and hope to get the word out. Im looking for community support. I have to try to find more money. Some local business people have helped. We got a beautiful grant from Jim Moran, she said. The shop is also partnering with vocational rehab. But for safety reasons, she cant hire too many who are physically challenged. Ninety percent of the hires and trainees are on the autism spectrum visually or cognitively. There are also those with Down Syndrome who also are able to train here. Ms. Herskowitz has help, from Fatema Hussain, my second hand, who works with the trainees and conducts workshops for the public as well. She has a brother on the spectrum, she said. Another worker, Dori Storn, a nurse who has worked with the autistic, also helps train and works with the teaching arm of the shop. Its open to the public for parties, and group classes in chocolate-making, and pastry-making. There are up to six paid workers at any given time. Teen trainees get eight hours a week for 12 weeks; adults get nine hours a week. They arent mixed; they come in different days and times.Others are apprentices and help out as they can, learning some skills along the way.We call it training, but we have oneoff classes once a week. Theyre on tracks to learn, she said. There are both teen and adult apprenticeship programs with a 2-week program, and a 6-month program for adults. But nobody really leaves, she said. They just keep coming in as much for the social engagement as anything. Theres a reality: Limits for the autistic are real. Its not an end for adults. People want to think thats the case: They can move out and get a job. But not every grad can operate independently. We offer vocational rehab opportunities. But as an example, one girl trained with us, but shes not a vocational rehab possible.But she holds out hope for most. Its a pioneering experiment. We aspire to hire them with us or in like-minded work in the community.She would like to expand the business, adding a cake-decorating arm. Already they bake the cakes, as well as cupcakes, cookies and brownies. And there are the truffles, which come in several flavors. Mondays are always busy, and Valentines Day and Christmas are their biggest sale days, she says. Online sales are critical corporations give boxes as client gifts, and others buy them for holiday gifting. Weve already starting working on production for Christmas, she said. Favorite jobs seem to be boxing and shipping, however. These are repetitive-motion jobs a favorite theme with her workers, who also go in for solid routine. Some of them will say washing dishes is their favorite job, she said.But everybody loves to mold the truffles. Blakes favorite job is making chocolate bars. Its very repetitious; they excel in that. The student trainees are allowed to sample one treat a day, and never while on the job. They must wait till after work, when they remove their aprons and hairnets. She trains baristas and front-of-house workers as well. Coffee is a big part of our business. The workers make cappuccinos, lattes, frozen drinks and more, using a coffee-pod machine so there is no boiling water or stoves to touch. None of the students work around the stoves or ovens. Two 12-week programs are set up for the actual trainees, and already there are two satellite shops where coffees are made and cookies sold. Michael Pagan runs one of these by himself. Ive seen them grow. Its amazing to see what theyve been capable of in so many ways. Many of them never made a friend till they came here. She hopes her shop is inspirational to others, and draws the community in as participants and activists. What weve starting and I hope others emulate is stuff for adults. Employment is one thing, but not all are going to make money. Many are coming for the social aspect, and just to have a purposeful life. Its not about employment.

Can you spell Eucalyptus, Mr. Peterson? asked the undertaker. Ole said, Let me just drag her over to Oak and you can pick her up there. Mike Martin, president, Florida Gulf Coast University I went up to the bar to get a couple of drinks. As I was waiting I overheard a guy near me bragging about all the people he knew. I know everybody, he said. He was going through a whole litany of names. There was no way he knew everyone. No way. Finally I heard him mention my wifes name. That was it, I could take no more. Sir, that is my wife. There is no way you know her. We have been together for 25 years. She has never mentioned you. To which he replied, Dont mean she dont know me. We talked a bit more and finally I said, OK. I will bet you she doesnt know you. He said, $1,000. Having had a few drinks, I replied, Fine, she is sitting at the table over there. The guy walked in front of me to the table. My wife looked up and shrieked, Leroy. She hugged him, they laughed. They talked for a while, reminiscing. He kept name dropping, which drove me crazy. I was out $1,000. The TV behind us had on a news update, something about the president. Leroy said, Man, Donny gets a bad rap all the time. I said, Donny? Wait, you know him too? Yeah, said Leoy. Donnys my man. We go way back. I know everybody. I couldnt take it again. I said, Leroy, the president will be at Mar-a-Largo tomorrow. I will drive you over there for double or nothing on that bet. OK, said Leroy. We arrived before the president did and waited outside the gates. Suddenly, as the presidential motorcade passed, the limo holding the president slammed on its brakes. The president hopped out and ran over. He hugged Leroy and shrieked, kind of like my wife had, as the two of them laughed with joy. The president eventually apologized that he had to go, but promised to fly Leroy to the White House for dinner with him and Melania. Mel missed him, he said. I stood there stunned. I was out $2,000. Leroy took me to the local caf for drinks. He knew the waitress, of course, and the cook, and all the patrons. Then the TV nearby showed a story on Pope Francis. Leroy smiled and said, Yep, I know him too. I thought about it. He had to be bluffing. He had to. I said, Leroy, I will use all the points on my credit card and fly us out to the Vatican, double or nothing. He said, OK. When we arrived at the Vatican there were thousands of people waiting for the Pope to come out and speak. We fought through the crowd to the front and waited. Eventually Leroy turned to me and said, How is the Pope gonna see me with all these people hanging around? Be right back. He left me alone. About 15 minutes later the Pope came out, with Leroy, their arms around each other, waving to the crowd. As the audience was cheering, the guy next to me asked, Whos that guy with Leroy? I lost $4,000 that day. Bill Taylor, founder and artistic director of Theatre Conspiracy, Fort Myers My favorite is stolen from Mitch Hedberg: I like escalators because they can never break.

Jonathan Foerster, community affairs director, Humane Society Naples The spit sink broke one morning at a dentists office, so he called a plumber. The plumber arrived, unpacked his tools, tinkered with the spit sink for 10 minutes, and handed the dentist a bill for $500. Clearly upset, the dentist said, This is crazy! Im a dentist and even I dont make $500 for 10 minutes work. The plumber waited for him to finish and quietly said, Neither did I when I was a dentist.

After a while, one of the guys looks at the other and says, I cant help but think from listening to you that youre from around here. The other guy responds proudly, Yes, thats right. I am. The first one says, So am I! And whereabouts from Ohio might you be? The other guy answers, Im from Hamilton, I am. The first one responds, Well, so am I. Well aint that something else. And what street did you live on in Hamilton? The other guy says, It was a nice area, it was. I lived on Pine Street in the north end of town.

The first one gets really excited and says, And so did I. Tell me, what year did you graduate? The other guy thinks for a moment and answers, Well now, lets see. I graduated in 1970. The first guy exclaims, The good Lord must be smiling down upon us! I can hardly believe our good luck at winding up in the same place tonight. Can you believe it? I graduated from Garfield High in 1970 me own self! About this time, Vicky walks up to the bar, sits down and orders a drink.

Howard stops, and says defensively No Joe, no I did not. Both keep walking. After another mile or two Joe stops again and says Dammit, Howard I smell poop! Did you crap your pants? Howard says, Joe, weve been friends for ages, I wouldnt lie to you. I did not crap my pants, to which Joe replies OK, I trust you. After another couple miles Joe gets another whiff and gets upset, and accuses his friend furiously, Dammit Howard I know your crapped your pants, I could smell it a mile away. Now just drop your pants and prove it to me if you say you didnt! So Howard pulls down his pants only for Joe to find a huge smelly, messy lump of crap just as he suspected. Dammit Howard, he said, I thought you told me you didnt crap your pants! Howard stops and thinks for a second, then smiles as he says Oh, I thought you meant TODAY!

Denver-based Frontier has announced seven new nonstop flights out of Southwest Florida International and five from Palm Beach International Airport to cities as far west as Las Vegas and as far northeast as Portland, SEE FLY ON, A15 These are brand new cities that have not been operated before ... I think it shows that they see Fort Myers as one of their focus cities, that people want to come here as a destination. Victoria Moreland, RSW spokesperson MONEY & INVESTINGHold off on buying marijuana stocks those highs are an illusionWhat is a financial bubble? It is when certain assets increase in value rapidly to the point they are priced way beyond their historical or intrinsic values and then the value crashes. Bubbles have been occurring for hundreds of years, starting with tulip prices in the 1600s and the South Sea Company in the 1700s. More recent examples include dot-com stocks, real estate prices and crypto-currencies. But last week the financial world witnessed one of the oddest bubbles in its history with the explosive rise and fall in marijuana stocks. One stock in particular, Tilray Inc., became the poster child for this volatile sector. What caused the massive price movements in pot stocks and what does the future hold for this industry?Tilray is a Canadian-based marijuana company founded in 2013. The company not only grows specific varieties of the plant desired by its customers, but it extracts various substances from it and packages the products in various forms. Tilray exports cannabis to clients in 10 countries in Europe, Latin America, Australia and Canada. The companys customers are primarily in the medical field and they provide both extracts and dried marijuana.The bubble in weed-related stocks started to inflate this past summer when Canada passed the Cannabis Act, legalizing recreational marijuana for the country starting in October. Investors clamored for the few publicly traded stocks in this sector, anticipating huge demand for marijuana once the drug became legal. Then, in the beginning of August, the bubble grew when the global beer and liquor company Constellation Brands announced that it would start to develop cannabis-infused beverages in Canada and invested $190 million in Canopy Growth Corp., the largest publicly traded marijuana company in the world. And around the same time, the beer company Molson Coors Brewing formed a joint venture with Hydropothecary Corp. to develop similar beverages. But what really put cannabis on investors radar was the announcement by CocaCola that it, too, was exploring the production of marijuana-infused beverages and was teaming up with Auroa Cannabis Inc. Suddenly, investors and analysts started to speculate that pot products could turn into a multi-billion dollar revenue product with global sales potential. Any company that was in this sector could be a takeover candidate or could see its sales grow exponentially as more countries legalized pot and both people and governments became more accepting of the plant. Stock prices of marijuana companies started to skyrocket. The cannabis bubble started to show signs of getting out of hand last week with Tilray. Already, the stock had increased from around $24 a share in the beginning of August to $150 a share a month later. But then the CEO of the company gave an interview on CNBC where he simply ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com SEE INVESTING ON, A15
stated that he believed that pharmaceutical companies would partner with marijuana producers as patients gave up opioids and switched to pot to help them with their pain symptoms. On that news alone, the stock jumped up by 90 percent in a few minutes, giving the company a market capitalization of over $28 billion, larger than more than half of the companies in the S&P500. Then the stock started to plunge as profit-takers and day traders started to sell the stock. The stock dropped all its gains and then actually went negative for the day. Then traders started to buy the stock again and it shot up once more, ending the day up 38 percent. The stock was so volatile that it was actually halted five times during the trading day by NASDAQ for extreme price movements. Over 30 million shares of stock were traded that day even though there are only 21 million shares of Tilray outstanding.There are many reasons why Tilrays stock was so volatile, including a short squeeze, momentum trading by investors and low liquidity. I think most investors would agree that there is no rational reason why a small Canadian agricultural company that is losing money and is without a proven product should be worth more than a majority of the largest corporations in the United States. Anyone buying any of these cannabis companies should do so with extreme caution. I would recommend staying away from them until there is more certainty regarding the future of both recreational and medical uses of cannabis. And even if an investor does believe that marijuana has a bright future, I believe this asset bubble will pop and there will be a better time to buy these companies.

Maine. At the smaller but fast-growing Punta Gorda Airport, the Las Vegas-based low-cost carrier Allegiant has a growing number of Airbus A320s to shuttle passengers to five new cities from the Midwest to the Northeast. Heres a complete list of all the new destinations at three travel hubs across the region. Happy travels. Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW)Frontier, American, Southwest, Spirit and Sun Country have all announced new flights in total to 14 cities for the fall and winter season out of Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers. These are brand new cities that have not been operated before, said RSW spokesperson Victoria Moreland. I think it shows that they see Fort Myers as one of their focus cities, that people want to come here as a destination. And vice versa. They have a lot of airplanes, theyre putting them in places they feel they can do well both inbound and outbound, she said. Earlier this year, in May, Eurowings started offering service to Germany. The regional RSW airport served more than 8.8 million passengers last year with some 370 flights per day during the height of season, from major legacy carriers such as American Airlines to low-cost carriers Frontier and Spirit. In the slowest parts of the summer offseason about 150 flights come and go each day. Along with dozens of seasonal flights that resume service starting in November, here are the new flights announced for this season, all nonstop destinations: American Airlines: Miami (MIA): double daily starting Dec. 19 Frontier: Las Vegas, Nev. (LAS): weekly, starting Nov. 17 Phoenix, Ariz. (PHX): weekly, starting Nov. 15 Salt Lake City, Utah (SLC): weekly, starting Nov. 16 Albany, New York (ALB): weekly, starting Nov. 17 Portland, Maine (PWM): weekly, starting Nov. 16 Raleigh/Durham, N.C.

(OMA): beginning Nov. 14 (seasonal) Syracuse, N.Y. (SYR): beginning Nov. 15 (seasonal) Appleton, Wis. (ATW): beginning Nov. 16 (seasonal) Albany, N.Y. (ALB): beginning Dec. 13 (year-round) Nashville, Tenn. (BNA): began in June (year-round) The new seasonal routes will operate twice weekly and the year-round routes will operate three times a week. The most current flight days, times and fares can be searched on Allegiant.com. Were pleased with our partnership with Allegiant and the positive impacts it has spurred, said James W. Parish, CEO of Punta Gorda Airport. Allegiant has consistently grown its commercial flight offerings, invested in a fleet of quieter, more efficient planes based here (Airbus A320s), and improved the airports infrastructure for commercial jet fueling. Not only do their flights bring in new visitors that spend millions of tourism dollars in the region, Allegiant offers our local residents about 40 destinations to visit via low-cost, nonstop air service. The new routes this season are expected to bring more than 56,000 visitors, Allegiant says. PGD served close to 1.3 million passengers last year. Allegiants partnership continues to encourage tourism expenditures and grow our local economy through new community investments, jobs and improvements at PGD, said Charlotte County Airport Authority Commissioner Kathleen Coppola. Palm Beach International Airport (PBI)Low-cost carrier Frontier Airlines is launching new, nonstop seasonal service starting Nov. 15 and running through April to five cities from Palm Beach International in West Palm Beach: Cleveland, Ohio (CLE): Sunday/Tuesday/Thursday Columbus, Ohio (CMH): Monday/ Friday Pittsburgh, Pa. (PIT): Wednesday/ Saturday Raleigh-Durham, N.C. (RDU): Sunday/Tuesday/Thursday St. Louis, Mo. (STL): Sunday/Tuesday/Thursday PBI reports that Frontier will continue nonstop service this season to Islip (ISP), Trenton (TNN), Philadelphia (PHL) and through service to Denver (DEN). PBI provided service to nearly 6.5 million passengers over the last year. Our partnership with Frontier Airlines is growing and we are excited for what this means for our passengers, said Palm Beach County director of airports Bruce Pelly. Our goal is to provide easy and convenient travel to and from Southeast Florida and the fall/winter schedule is looking positive, with nonstop service to 30 markets and over 100 departures daily.

Rachel Papp and Enid Atwater 1 2 3 5 4 6 7 Cecelia Hudnet and Ashley Mock THE EXTRA MILEElectric cars and the future of auto serviceAccording to a recent story I read in The Washington Post, 90 percent of the U.S. auto repair industry has done nothing to prepare for how it will deal with the coming wave of electric cars a challenge Foreign Affairs European Automotive Shop is already meeting head on. The story went on to say our industry employs about 750,000 workers, nearly four times the number of people employed by the coal-mining industry. Though they are increasingly skilled and tech-savvy, many mechanics are simply not ready for the end of gaspowered transportation including European cars, such as BMW, Mercedes (which also owns Smart cars), Fiat, Volkswagen and Porsche, the kinds we service. Unlike gasoline cars, electric vehicles require no traditional oil changes, fuel filters, spark plug replacements or emission checks. In most cases there will be no need for changing timing belts, differential fluid and transmission fluid. Electric vehicle brake pad replacements are less frequent because regenerative braking returns energy to the battery, significantly reducing wear on mechanical brakes, because theyre used less to slow the vehicle. Analysts estimate that the repair bills for electric vehicles could be lower and less frequent than the tabs of their gas-guzzling counterparts. By now maybe youre wondering what all of this means to you. Well, according to Elite Worldwide Inc. one of the auto repair industrys original training, coaching and consulting companies our industry is now seeing the beginning of the end of the internal combustion engine. It will inevitably go the way of horse-and-buggies and steam engines. As the electric car industry progresses, battery life will no doubt continue to extend and our environmentally conscious society will take a far greater interest in vehicles that pollute less, run more quietly and depend on fewer moving parts. As repairers of European-made automobiles, we believe its imperative to get out ahead of this issue, which is why we constantly attend industry conferences and educational seminars to determine what our role will be as the world changes over to electric cars. Its all about evolution and adaptability. After all, things had to change when horse-drawn carriages gave way to the Model T. This really isnt so different from that. I still remember when cruise control was an issue with customers and mechanics alike. Over the past decade vehicles have become better built and far more complex, with dozens of computers interacting on board and millions of lines of computer code. The most progressive auto shops like ours are already immersed in tech, using iPads, laptops and Google Hangouts to streamline work and keep up with a rapidly changing industry. We have already begun retraining our employees to make the shift to electric. In many cases we already do a lot more work with a laptop than we do with a wrench anymore. But there will always be a need to fulfill the basic work, because tires can last only so many miles, shock absorbers and struts have only so many movements of life in them and even batteries in electric cars dont last forever. We consider it a prime directive to make sure our mechanics get the continuing education they need to keep up with the constant advancements and innovations taking place in our industry. They take certified courses about every other month, for each European car make, to stay abreast of the changes that come with technological progression. As long as we continue to adapt and enhance our knowledge and education, well evolve right along with the industry. To thrive, we realize the auto technician of the future will need to become something of an IT support guy with a car-lovers mind someone with the ability to change tires and operate diagnostic and scanning equipment to root out problems involving computer networks and data processing. Even for repair shops on the cutting edge often in urban areas where hybrid cars are already ubiquitous survival may not be a matter of willingness to adapt, but by how quickly a business can reasonably do so. Though I dont foresee the automobile industry getting completely wiped out by electric cars, I do expect electric technology to arrive much faster than a lot of analysts predict. Technology sort of compresses time, which is why I think people should expect electric cars to be commonplace about 2025 rather than 2040. The future is yours if you have the vision and if you work hard to keep yourself at the leading edge of the service industry. Thats what we do at Foreign Affairs.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPT. 27-OCT. 3, 2018 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE A17 BEHIND THE WHEELMore confidence with the new Hyundai Santa FeHyundai has developed an impressive knack for over-delivering its mainstream offerings. So when a bread-nbutter crossover like the Santa Fe gets redesigned, its time to take notice. The new 2019 vehicle is a sharp contrast to its predecessor. The old one went out of its way to look like a sleek crossover. It sold well with the public, but some feedback seemed to make minivan comparisons. So there was a conscious effort to be as macho with the new styling as possible. This Santa Fe has extra creases in the hood, a style line that runs the full profile and double-folded fender flares. They purposely created a more chiseled and maturely defined look sort of like Harrison Ford with wheels. Hyundais designer even went out of his way to point out how much the Santa Fe is not a crossover, and instead, a true SUV. It isnt. Thats not necessarily a bad thing. SUVs are meant for those whose cargo requirements are as great as the demand to carry people. Crossovers clearly make passengers the sole top priority. The Santa Fe understands this role quite well. Its a people carrier, and Hyundai is looking out for families. Safe Exit Assist is standard on every 2019 Santa Fe. Its a new child safety lock system that utilizes the blind spot radar to detect when a car is approaching on the drivers side. If danger is detected, the passenger door behind the driver is not allowed to open, even if the manual child lock is disengaged. This seems like a feature with a narrow use, but any of the few who experience it will likely be eternally grateful. Besides extra safety, Hyundai is continuing the tradition of offering good value for money. Starting at $26,480, the standard features include blind spot detection, cross-traffic alert, power drivers seat and a power lift gate. The dashboard is a handsome two-level design that also wraps around the doors for an overall thoughtful feeling. In the rear, theres a good amount of room, so even the adults are comfortable. There are few individual options available, and instead, packages are bundled across five trim lines. Our top-of-theline Ultimate test vehicle included a panoramic sunroof, surround-view backup camera, head-up display and ventilated seats (a great Florida feature.) It also came with all-wheel drive and the upgraded motor. Fully loaded, the price never got above $40K. While looking tough on the outside and adding value inside might seem unrelated at first, it all goes toward a selfassured feeling that is best understood out on the road. Hyundai is shifting its focus to driving dynamics, and the new Santa Fe shows off where the engineers spent a lot of improvement time. The predecessor felt solid on the road, but it was a bit uninspired. It likely didnt hurt sales because mainstream crossovers dont need to be sports cars in disguise. But driving the new 2019 Santa Fe instantly conveys something missing from the old one: confidence. The steering is tighter and heavier. It doesnt require more effort to use, but it does feel like theres more direct connection between the driver and the front wheels. The suspension geometry has been reconfigured for better composure over bumps. Plus, the ones equipped with all-wheel drive get torque vectoring its variable wheel speeds for inside and outside tires during cornering thats seen on sports cars like the Jaguar F-Type. All of this added composure reinforces the feeling of premium. There are two motors available. They are a standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 185 horsepower and an optional 2.0-liter turbocharged unit making 235 hp. Our test car was the upper-level turbo powerhouse. It felt good around town and could accelerate nicely for the highway. Hyundai focused a little more on weight savings than overall power for this model. That leaves room for a few gutsier engines from competitors like Ford and Kia with optional six-cylinders. Still, for most of us, daily driving needs wont stretch the upper limits of Hyundais turbo motor. The new Santa Fe wants to look like a strapping SUV on the outside, be a roomy family hauler on the inside and offer an extra hint of excitement on the asphalt. Its absolutely a mainstream crossover, and quite a confident one at that. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com EARL ON CARSMy lunch with Bob WoodwardMost Important Threat to the United States and the WorldI spent several hours with Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward a few years ago. My wife, Nancy, and I and six other Toyota dealers met at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. and had lunch together. This once-in-a-lifetime experience was my reward for being one of the top Toyota dealers in the U.S., measured by sales and customer satisfaction. Remember the Watergate scandal? Woodward and another young reporter at The Washington Post, Carl Bernstein, broke the most important political story of the 20th century. It led to the resignation of President Richard Nixon. Woodward has written several books, won the Pulitzer Prize, and is generally regarded as the No. 1 investigative reporter and political author in the world. More recently, he wrote the book, Fear, Trump in the White House. Now what on Earth can my conversations with Bob Woodward have to do with car dealerships? As you know, Ive been on a crusade for many years to make the dealer fee illegal in Florida. In addition to the dealer fee issue, I write a weekly newspaper column, a blog (www .EarlStewartOnCars.com) and host a weekly radio show (WSVUFM 95.9 and FM 106.9 and AM 960 from 8 to 10 a.m. Saturdays) campaigning for truth, ethics and legality in advertising and selling cars. The main reason my message is so slow to reach the public is the refusal or reluctance of the great majority of the media to report the story. In fact, two years ago, I was previously on another radio station, Seaview 900 AM. The local car dealers threatened the station owner that they would stop advertising on 900 AM if they didnt fire Earl Stewart. I was fired and off the air for over year until JVC Broadcasting bought Seaview and the new owners hired me back. I thank these gentlemen for their courage and journalistic ethics. Why wont many TV and radio stations and newspapers (fading from importance in the digital age) report rampant, unfair and deceptive selling and advertising practices by many car dealers in Florida? Its all about the money. Car dealers are responsible for about 20 percent of total retail sales. As a group, theyre often the largest single buyer of advertising in the media. When the media runs a negative news or editorial piece about car dealers, they risk losing that advertising revenue. Newspapers are going out of business daily. Many of our largest newspapers are suffering revenue declines and local newspapers, such as The Palm Beach Post, are equally affected. During my lunch with Woodward, he asked each of us what we considered the single most important threat to the United States and the world. My answer was radicals inciting terrorism and the threat of a new world order. Another Toyota dealer was afraid of hyperinflation brought on by this administrations out-of-control spending. Woodward told us his greatest fear affecting the USA and the world is that the media is failing to fulfill its vital role to report all the news fearlessly, completely, honestly and ethically. We Americans take a lot of things for granted and that a free, open and honest media keeping our government and corporations honest is one of them. Most of the world doesnt have a free press and its no coincidence that those parts of the world without it also dont have freedom.Newspapers like Florida Weekly and Hometown News and radio stations like WSVU should be admired and respected for having the journalistic ethics and courage to allow me to express my opinions about unfair and deceptive trade practices in the retail car business. The Palm Beach Post is not so inclined. For fear of losing the advertising business of local car dealers, they refuse to run any news or Op-Ed article with my name in it. This is not just my opinion. Post reporters have said off the record that they cannot get permission from their editors to do stories about my company or me. When I realized that the Post had put a blackout on any news about me or my company, I met personally with the former publisher at the time, Doug Franklin, and he privately confirmed that he could not risk losing car dealer advertisers by reporting my views or even running positive news articles about me. I give him credit for being candid. He equates the financial survival of the paper with maintaining sufficient advertising revenue. Survival is our strongest instinct. Its a very rare person or company that will put ethics ahead of survival. Ironically, The Post and most newspapers have lost car dealers and most other advertisers to digital and TV. Selling out their journalistic ethics didnt work in the long run. What do you think is the greatest threat to the USA and the rest of the world? Im inclined to agree with Woodward. Who is going to keep our politicians, Wall Street, corporations (including car dealers) honest and ethical if they know that nobody will ever learn about their shenanigans in the media? earlSTEWARTearls@estoyota.com561-358-1474 WOODWARD

Even if you dont live in Alaska or Maine, your Alaskan malamute, Bernese mountain dog, Great Pyrenees, Norwegian elkhound or pretty much any dog with a thick, furry coat will go through this seasonal shedding process, making your life furrier in the process. And dont think you are home free if you have a short-haired dog. Labrador retrievers, beagles, pugs and puggles are also among the dogs who shed like nervous Chihuahuas this time of year. Seasonal shedding, known to the dognoscenti as blowing coat, usually begins in September and completes its mission to layer your home, clothes and belongings in fur by November just in time for the holidays. (Maybe you can collect it to weave scarves and socks for loved ones?) People new to double-coated dogs are sometimes stunned by the amount of hair that comes off their pets. Ankle-deep in dustpuppies, they call their veterinarians, wondering if their dog has a skin disease.Nope, its normal. The good news is that it doesnt last forever (it just seems that way). The better news? You can take steps to help relieve your dog of fur faster. The following tips can help you get through it, sense of humor and sanity intact. Brush daily to remove dead hair. Brush outdoors to keep hair in your home to a minimum. Invest in fur-removal tools: wire slicker brushes, undercoat rakes, shedding blades, Furminators, hound gloves and Zoom Grooms are just a few of the options available. Go easy. With tools such as Furminators, you can become so enthusiastic at the amount of hair thats coming out that the next thing you know, your dog is bald. Dont go there. Go to the experts. If you purchased your dog from a breeder, ask about the best grooming tools to use on your dog. For instance, hound gloves, grooming mitts and Zoom Grooms work best on shorthaired dogs. A professional groomer can also give good advice (and take much of the labor off your hands). For dogs with big, thick coats, pro groomer Julie Ellingson of Sacramento, California, uses a slicker, comb, deshedding shampoo and conditioner, silicone brushing spray, a Mighty Wind high-velocity dryer and a liberal yet scientific application of elbow grease. Draw a warm bath for your dog. That helps to release loose coat. A warm bath every two weeks for her collies encourages dead hair to let go, says Rosemary George of Virginia. Follow the bath with conditioner, and then blow-dry, brushing your dog thoroughly to remove loosened hair and undercoat. For best results, be sure your dog is dry all the way down to the skin. Between baths and brushings, pull out your trusty lint roller and go over your dog with it to remove small amounts of loose hair. Buy a good vacuum cleaner, one that wont balk at sucking up all that fur. Better, choose one with an attachment, such as an upholstery tool, that allows you to vacuum your dog. If they are introduced to it at a young age and arent fearful of the loud noise, many dogs enjoy the feel of being vacuumed. Introduce him to the experience sl owly so he doesnt feel as if hes being attacked. Ask your veterinarian about fatty acid supplements. They may help to reduce the volume of shedding. De-fur furniture and carpets with a rubber dishwashing glove, hound glove or squeegee. You can find pet hair lifters, lint removers or similar items online or at pet supply stores. Most important, relax. Every fashionista knows dog hair is a neutral.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPT. 27-OCT. 3, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY COLLECTORS CORNER scott SIMMONS email@example.com In my dream, my aunt stands alone among the poinciana trees. A canal separates us, and Uncle Bob and I want to reach her, but we cant, even as the traffic zips along U.S. 27 near Lake Okeechobee. We are here, and Aunt Cleo is there, and we are separated by an easily navigable stream that for some reason, none of us can cross. Its hopeless. And then I awaken. A half-century later, I remember that dream each time I pass those trees, which still stand in front of the Herbert Hoover Dike somewhere between South Bay and Lake Harbor, a monument to the time someone lived there, farmed there and possibly died there. I never shared the dream, not with Uncle Bob or Aunt Cleo. And after all these years, I cannot begin to interpret it Bob died shortly after, and Cleo lived another decade, long enough to fill me with stories of coming to the Glades in 1923, when she was 11 years old, then returning to teach four generations of third-graders in Pahokee. I remember being fascinated with those trees and asking Cleo what had been there before. There had been a house nestled among the trees that was demolished sometime before U.S. 27 was rerouted in the 1960s, she said. The Everglades always seems to be at odds with humans, in a battle that dates back to 19th century industrialist Hamilton Disstons projects to drain the Everglades as if that ever could happen. Each time humans interfere, the Everglades strikes back. Ninety years ago this month, the area bore witness to the 1928 hurricane, one of the deadliest natural disasters in U.S. history, as upward of 3,000 people perished in the floodwaters that breached the low earthen berms along the shore. Their eyes were watching God, according to the author Zora Neale Hurston, who wrote a book that bore those words as its title. Cleo was at college in Georgia when that storm hit. But my grandfather was in Pahokee, and remembered looking on in horror at the piles of bodies some were buried in mass graves and others burned in mammoth pyres. Not all of the victims were recovered. Many of the dead still are there, their bodies now one with the muck. Perhaps their ghosts remain, stirring the breeze and a memory or two. The poincianas were blooming the last time I zipped past, on my way from the Palm Beaches to Fort Myers and back. I thought of those who had been there before me. The branches trembled slightly in the breeze and the orange and white poinciana blossoms drifted to the emerald Earth just as the random memories flitted about my brain.

The Skinny: Id sworn off buying big bowls I have a veritable army of them in the kitchen and in the garage. But this one is special. Cambridge made its Everglade pattern between 1929 and 1958, when the company went out of business. These bowls are delicate the leaves stand out, placing them at easy risk of breakage. This bowl is perfect, with nary a scratch or a chip. And Cambridges pale blue color is ethereal. The company was known for its beautiful, deeply saturated colors Ive known of antiques dealers who used the term Cambridge Glass as a generic term to describe colored glass of the Depression era. Many of the pieces in this pattern bear images of tulips and buffalo that evoke other parts of the country. But these leaves of this Everglade bowl are right at home in Florida, and capture the essence of our states River of Grass.

FLORIDA WRITERSEducating, entertaining fiction about seniors and assisted living Dont Admit Youre in Assisted Living First Mystery: The Kiss, by Dorothy Seymour Mills. Blue Water Press LLC. 154 pages. Trade paperback, $15.95.This delightful three-part mystery series by Dorothy Seymour Mills, who recently turned 90, provides an insightful and humorous look at senior living communities. The authors model for the setting, a place she calls Locksley Glen, is her Naples home of The Carlisle. However, she is writing fiction and she means for her exploration of such a community to be representative. Readers will journey into a world of people who are past being active physically and whose ability to contribute to modern life is limited by physical decline and encroaching age-connected illness. But as the novel makes clear, these people, mostly women, are abundantly alive, curious, engaged and brimming with experiential knowledge. They offer one another vital, shareable experience in a setting made to order for their needs. When 80-yearold Locksley resident Clarence is spotted accepting a kiss from a young Greek waiter named Petros, the rumor mill starts grinding. Alice, the principal character and the narrator, wonders if this behavior an elderly man showing sexual interest in a teenage employee fits into the parameters of normality. What is the revealed relationship all about? What is the mystery behind the kiss? Some speculation about sexual activity between senior citizens follows, but the question is left up in the air. It seems less and less important as another strange event takes over the imaginations of the residents: Someone is stabbed during a Halloween party. Preparations for the party involve the creation of costumes. A most popular and attractive resident, Starr, borrows some paint from Alice, an artist who is about to have a significant exhibition of her paintings. Starr uses the paint to fashion a cardboard gun and knife as part of her outlaw cowboy costume. Somehow, the imitation knife gets replaced by a real one a steak knife stolen from the Locksley Glen kitchen and ends up being used as a weapon in a real crime against Petros father, Tzannis Papadopoulos, who Petros had been trying to prevent from being allowed into the United States. Meanwhile, the cardboard knife is found to have real blood on it. While the intrigues regarding this family which includes another son, Stavros, and a Greek woman named Ariadne are entertaining, nothing is more entertaining that the overall portrait of senior living and the quirks and unexpected vitality of the key members of the Locksley Glen community. They show inventiveness, loyalty, a cooperative spirit and the ability to energize a plan to negotiate with the authorities investigating the crime/crimes connected with the Greek family. As they work to ameliorate the familys situation, humor abounds in their personalities and actions. Locksley Glen proves to be an example of a generally well-run business whose executives and key professionals know how to manage their responsibilities. The descriptions of the important rooms and representative activities include the attention paid to providing opportunities for friendships and continued personal growth. Ms. Mills provides plenty of satiric touches, but they are touches that convey a genuine fondness for the carefully planned environment that nurtures and protects the residents. Yes, things can go wrong, but things can go wrong anywhere. The other titles in this most welcome series are Mystery Two: The Wet Bathing Suit and Third Mystery: The Phone Call. Collectively, the three separately bound short novels provide an inside view of the opportunities and limitations of life in assisted living communities. The key personalities continue, but the story lines are quite different. All present useful information for those considering such a lifestyle w hile offering suspense and smiles that any reader will enjoy.About the authorThis is historian Dorothy Seymour Mills 30th book.

Their strength and passion has blossomed into a fantastic way of life they couldnt have dreamed of. But who were they? A special lecture at the Flagler Musuem Florida Made: The 25 Most Important Figures Who Shaped the State, by George S. LeMieux and Laura E. Mize will try to answer that question. The book talk, signing, and reception with former U.S. Sen. George S. LeMieux and his co-author, journalist Laura E. Mize, will celebrate the launch of their book. Its a perfect place to fete the authors: Henry Flagler is the subject of the first chapter and of course the co-authors will talk about Flagler, but theyll also paint pictures of the other famous figures who took Florida from an alligator and mosquito-filled swamp to prime real estate, as well as visionaries like conservationist and journalist Marjory Stoneman Douglas, physician-inventor Dr. John Gorrie and orange grower Douglas Dummett. The presentation begins at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14, at the Flagler Museum, 1 Whitehall Way, Palm Beach. Tickets are $25, which includes a post-talk reception. Purchase tickets online at www. flaglermuseum.us or call 561-655-2833, Ext. 27. The art of storytellingAuthor Charles Martin and filmmaker Jody Hassett Sanchez will speak at the Art of Storytelling Conference at Palm Beach Atlantic University at 7 p.m. Oct. 12 in DeSantis Family Chapel, 300 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach, and 9 a.m. Oct. 13 Lassiter Student Center, second floor, 900 S. Olive Ave., West Palm Beach. The conference will explore the creation and expression of stories in various media, including interpersonal, biblical storytelling, fiction and film by those building from a biblical Christian foundation. Charles Martin is a New York Times bestselling author of 13 novels, including The Mountain Between Us, which was made into a movie starring Kate Winslet and Idris Elba in 2017. Jody Hassett Sanchez is president of Pointy Shoe Productions (PSP), a documentary and longform production company that explores issues of faith and culture. She produced the film SOLD: Fighting the New Global Slave Trade, a documentary filmed in India, Pakistan, and West Africa about people of faith held in bondage as part of the 21st century slave trade. Tickets are $15. Pre-register online at www.pba.edu or call 561-803-2610 for more information. Picture editor to speakThe Palm Beach Photographic Centre will host a lecture, Famous Pictures & the Stories Behind the Photos, by Arnold Drapkin, at 6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19.

The location of the sixth annual white themed pop-up dinner party will be revealed one hour before the event. The mystery lends to the excitement, organizers say. Guests dressed all in white self-host this al fresco dinner party; some guests bring simple fare, others stage an extravagant feast, while others take the easy way out: They purchase dinner from the prix fixe menu provided by The Lords Place Joshua Catering. After dinner, its dancing to live music by Girlfriend Material, a band made up of Dreyfoos alum. Tickets for Dreyfoos in White are $55, and proceeds benefit the Dreyfoos School of the Arts Foundation. Sponsor tables are available. Get tickets online at www.soafi.org. North American Churches and the Cold War: Mutual Impact Between the Cold War and North American Christians, taught by Paul Mojzes, Ph.D., a professor emeritus of religious studies at Rosemont College. This four-week course will examine how the Cold War between East and West (1945-1990) impacted the North American Christian communities. And how, in turn, the churches responded to the challenges of the ideological rivalry and the threat of nuclear annihilation. Lectures, performances and courses take place in the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute complex at FAUs John D. MacArthur Campus, 5353 Parkside Drive, Jupiter. For more information about the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute or to receive a course catalog, call 561-7998547. HAPPENINGSFrom page 1FAUFrom page 1 den message? Whatever it is, the canvases titled Work, Color and Work, Grey wont shut up about it. Nouns, verbs and adjectives sit flat against the solid gray and red surfaces. There is no sense of depth to them. Seconds later, certain words jump out as if they had been cracked by a genius mathematician. The rambling is happening on the second floor of the Boca Raton Museum of Art, where John Boone: Pairs, Hands and Ohs remains on view through Oct. 21. Here, art appears to be a senile machine yelling bite-size incoherent phrases and not waiting for a response before yelling another or a millennial punished for not doing homework. Enough time spent in the gallery prove both wrong. Duality is pop artist John Boones specialty. He has been nailing it for the past two decades using a stencil he created in the 0s. The New Jersey native, who lives and works in New York, likes to strike audiences with visual and intellectual stimuli. He has made a career delivering reading material in beautiful wrapping. American clichs, colloquialisms, and common global idioms feed the voice of his paintings, which always host a single color in the background. His handmade font lends the painted messages a vintage quality and spares them a cold technical temper. On occasion, the lines pose as verses to a dark poem or a gratuitous ode to something mundane. That is the case in Hands-Holding Hands, one of four canvasses painted in black that make up the Hands series. The letters in white and gray read: ON THE OTHER HAND HOLDING HANDS ON THE OTHER HAND FINGER POINTING The repetitive theme is not immediately apparent but emerges sl owly as an advice against taking the experience too seriously. This is not Ridley Scotts Mother computer demanding the return of an alien organism. Its an amusing puzzle that shakes off familiar links formed through years of idiomatic exposure. Mr. Boone, who is also behind the five colorful banners greeting Boca Raton Museum visitors at the entry, reimagines the widely recognized phrases as the world knows them and reintroduces them under a new light. Just when a line starts to resemble its good old self, he playfully steals it away and replaces our assumption with a twist containing the same key word. No conclusion is safe. He highlights the selected subject matter in Counting One (1996) by painting the numerical references lime green. The numbers leave a glowing trail in the dark background and illuminate the words sitting nearby. ONE OF THESE DAYSMY TWO CENTSWILL BE THREEFOLD WHILE FOUR EYESHIGH FIVE In another pair of mirroring paintings Drawing a Blank and Drawing Conclusions the colors wait for their queue to enter the otherwise mutedblue phrase ending in: WITH FLYING COLORS Suitably, Mr. Boone injects bright colors where they are literally called for, in that last word. Also included in the exhibit is the Ohs series from 2018. These are, unquestionably, the lightest and most minimalist of the pieces on display and best embody the unpretentious grace hinted throughout the show. A line of eight square canvases features the common expression in bright colors and followed by an ellipsis. Whether its disappointment or awe or relief that prompts them is left up to the viewers to decide or project. The artist notes his works do not carry personal associations or are of biographical nature. But given the fact that he carefully selects the words and phrases to use, it is fair to assume they reflect a piece of his mindPeace of mindPlease, dont mindthe clock. Do take the time to absorb them. Works dangerously prone to dismissal for their simplicity and flatness can turn deep and complex if we stick around long enough. Therein lies the cleverness of Mr. Boones body of work.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPT. 27-OCT. 3, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B7 200dealers! Early Bird VIP Admission(Ticket good for all 3 days)General AdmissionSat. October 6: 9-5 Sun. October 7 Info Call: PUZZLE ANSWERS LATEST FILMSLizzieIs it worth $10? NoThe mythology surrounding Lizzie Bordens alleged murder of her father and stepmother has become the stuff of legend, to the point that her name is often associated with the most gruesome murders ever recorded. Given how ripe Lizzies story is with sensationalism, scandal and money, its a surprise its taken this long to become the subject of a feature film. It shouldve taken a little longer. Director Craig William Macneills Lizzie is a tedious bore, with only a few moments of titillation to relieve the monotony. Sure, the pace of life was slow in Fall River, Mass., in 1892, but that doesnt mean the pace of the film needs to be the same. Its as if the script wants to be more of a character study than a crime drama, and the characters just arent that interesting. The Bordens are the wealthiest family in their small town. Patriarch Andrew (Jamey Sheridan) is a successful businessman, but his daughters, Lizzie (Chloe Sevigny) and Emma (Kim Dickens), are frustrated by his frugality and controlling ways. Their stepmother, Abby (Fiona Shaw), capitulates to Andrews wishes, leading to resentment from the daughters, especially Lizzie. The only other person living in the house is Bridget Maggie Sullivan, a housekeeper whos pretty because shes played by Kristen Stewart. Bryce Kass screenplay brings a lesbian and feminist spin to the murders, which is okay given that the movie doesnt purport to depict reality (as suggested by the fact that the script was not adapted from a previously published source). The problem is that Kass doesnt spice up his historical fiction to make it more entertaining. The murder scene is memorable for a number of reasons, yet the rest of the film including a fully clothed sex scene between Lizzie and Maggie is as lame as could be. Surely its not easy to take a story from 1892 and make it relevant to the headlines of 2018, but that appears to be the intention here. This is about oppressed women revolting against their handlers in an oppressive society. By empowering Lizzie and Maggie, Macneill believes well cheer for them as well and we do, but that line stops at a double axe-murder. Viewers end up rooting for characters who prove unworthy of sympathy, and that makes it a hard watch. Sevigny is solid in the title role, but Stewart reverts back to the pained angst she used in the often-unwatchable Twilight movies. Aside from an Irish accent, she shows none of the acting chops she demonstrated in Clouds of Sils Maria and other recent films. There are certainly some gutsy moments in Lizzie that couldnt have been easy to shoot, but the character doesnt extend or push Stewart in a notable way. At some point a filmmaker will figure out how to handle the complicated character that is Lizzie Borden, and when that happens its possible a good movie will be made about her life. Lizzie, sadly, is not it. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Lizzie was shot in 23 days on location in Savannah, Ga.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPT. 27-OCT. 3, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B9 PUZZLES DRUNK IN THE KITCHEN HOROSCOPESLIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A colleague could make a request that might place you in an awkward position with co-workers. Best advice: Share your concerns with an associate you can trust. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your energy levels are way up, allowing you to take on the added challenge of a task youve been hoping to secure. Expect this move to lead to an important opportunity. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Your continuing sense of confidence in what youve set out to do gives encouragement to others. Expect to see more people asking to add their efforts to yours. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You might think it would be best to reject a suggestion that others insist would be unworkable. But you might be surprised by what you find if you give it a chance. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Changing a decision might disappoint some people, but the important thing is that you be honest with yourself. Dont go ahead with anything you have doubts about. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) There could be some fallout from an emotional confrontation that you really should deal with before moving on. Best to start fresh with a clean, clear slate. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your Aries charm helps persuade others to listen to your proposal. But its still a long way from acceptance, unless you can stand up to the tough questions that are set to follow. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Plan to share a weekend getaway from all the pressures of your hectic workaday world with a very special someone. You could be pleasantly surprised at what develops. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Your keen insight once again helps you handle a challenging situation with a clearer perception of what its really all about. What you learn helps you make a difficult decision. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) If you want to steer clear of getting involved in a new family dispute, say so. Your stand might cause hurt feelings for some, but overall, youll be respected for your honesty. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Expect recognition for your efforts in getting a project into operation. Besides the more practical rewards, your Lions heart will be warmed by the admiration of your colleagues. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Set aside time to rid yourself of clutter that might well be drawing down your creative energies. Consider asking someone to help you decide what stays and what goes.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPT. 27-OCT. 3, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B11The Dish: New York Strip Steak The Place: Okeechobee Steak House, 2854 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach; 561-6835151 or www.okeesteakhouse.com. The Price: $31.95 for 8-ounce; $49.95 for 14-ounce. The Details: For more than 70 years, Okeechobee Steak House has been THE place for beef in Palm Beach County. Its easy to see why. After all, members of the Lewis family, who opened the place in 1947, remain a daily presence in the operations. Wait staff have been there for decades and know the menu from all directions. For years, I have gone there for the gorgonzola salad you could make a meal of it at lunch. But most folks go to Okeechobee for the namesake steak. This is a classic why mess with it? This 8-ounce New York Strip was cooked medium as ordered. The wonderful sear on the outside ensured that the delicate pink meat inside was tender and juicy. The baked potato served on the side was fresh and fluffy.
