While to many this question seems shady, the reality is you live in Florida, a state that now legally allows use of medicinal cannabis. If your answer is yes, you may have some questions about how to get it. You are not alone. Since 71 percent of Floridians voted in favor of legalizing medical marijuana in 2016, and Amendment 2 became law, a few things are sure. You can get marijuana legally in numerous locations across the state. In order to get it, you have to go to a doctor to authorize you to use it, one who has been certified by a two-hour course approved by the Department of Health.

The answer is a resounding yes and the hope is that many residents of Palm Beach and Martin counties will do just that at on Oct. 24 as part of a program called On the Table. The communitywide engagement initiative, being launched locally by the Community Foundation, simply asks that people throughout the two counties get together for one day to share a meal or a cup of coffee and discuss meaningful ideas in an effort to strengthen communities. The initiative, funded by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, is part of a nationwide movement.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY COMMENTARYLong, sweet season of heatSupposing, somehow, the human blueprint came with a design feature solidly established in the blueprints of many other mammals: short, sweet seasons of heat. For a month each year, or maybe two or three weeks twice a year, females would give the signal. Then both sexes would run around aching with desire, co-mingling to satisfy that desire, and (if desired) reproducing. Men and women would carry on afterward with a temperate and slightly cool appreciation for each other that never restrained the capacity for deep friendships, long solid alliances characterized by gentle respect and an enduring unwillingness on the part of males to drink beer and abuse women. And why? Because men wouldnt really want anything from women, or vice versa. Except sanity, stability and respect. Sounds horrible, doesnt it. Life might be a lot less exciting for a lot of men and some women. Can you imagine? Youre born, you come out with a third short leg between the other two, but you cant strut around from one January to the next drinking beer, thumping on your chest and wolfwhistling at women because your blueprint doesnt call for it. Horrors! But wait. Since were supposing here, just suppose humans were engineered with the capacity to enjoy the world as one long, sweet season of heat, morning to night, for a lifetime but men came equipped with a governor. On an internal combustion engine, the governor regulates its speed within certain parameters. Want to go 160? Not if your governor is calibrated to a max speed of 60, whether you like it or not. Thats a form of governmental regulation, of course; hence, governor. A lot of people dont like it. Most people recognize, however, that the cultural and legal governors of our behavior are roughly as effective as the governors in our engines; they can be dismantled. Or as bells on a seat-belt apparatus that make noise but dont stop the accidental tragedy when riders fail to fasten them. Theres nothing imperative about seatbelt warnings. When you climb into your vehicle, they ding for an irritating minute or two if you fail to fasten the seat belt. And then usually they quit. Either that, or you dismantle them too, with a hammer. Same with the warnings that restrain male mistreatment of women (or anybody elses mistreatment of anybody else): They ding loudly. Rape is a crime (Ding)! Sexual abuse or harassment are crimes (Ding-Ding)! Using positions of power to gain sexual favors or even suggesting it is a massive misstep or a crime (Ding-Ding-Ding-Ding-Ding!). But then the driver heads out, a drunk, powerful man with his seat belt unfastened. Too often that journey ends in the terrible evidence of ineffectiveness: bodies on the highway. The seat belt warning failed. Rape laws, themselves, suggest afterthe-fact governors. So do related laws governors prohibiting men (or anybody else) from abusing women or children, or each other. Nothing happens until the deed is done, and proven in court. Then the sky falls in, for everybody. The governor flat kills the engine; itll never operate again. Unfortunately, the victim may not be able to operate normally again, either. But supposing we came up with new governors for our engines, before-thefact governors. Could we create a society with only a few or no perpetrators, and few or no victims? Wed have to produce a race of drivers who didnt need governors on their engines because we raised them to govern themselves. Sounds like freedom and strength. But how would we do it? Say, for example, you have two parents living in largesse, and they raise an only child. They get tired of the effort after about 13 years and send him off to Georgetown Prep, a high school described as among the most selective boarding schools in the United States the only Jesuit Catholic boarding school in America, located in the Washington, D.C., suburb of Bethesda, Md. One parent becomes a lawyer when her kid is growing up, getting her law degree while also teaching high school history, then later becoming a circuit court judge. The other, already a lawyer, becomes president of the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Fragrance Association. For 20 years, no doubt smelling good the whole time. And in the 13 years those parents have that kid at home, including roughly 10 in which they can actually speak to him in English hell understand, they fail to teach him the single most important thing about living in the world, because no one told them they should: the mantra. Its a mantra more powerful than any presented by the Jesuits at Georgetown Prep, or the ethics professors at the Yale University Law School. It would go roughly like this: Never torment the weak. Never mistreat the slow-witted. Never silence or scoff at the confused. Never ignore the troubled. Never dismiss another race, another religion or the other sex as unworthy, or because you can. Champion your loved ones, celebrate your friends, defend anyone near you in need. Do it like a hurricane, do it like a soft spring evening, do it like you have one chance to save the world, every single time. And do it to the last damn breath you take. What if that short mantra, 60 seconds in the saying, was the governor, attached by his parents to each man (and for that matter, each woman) to serve a lifetime? That could be the door to a self-governed world more just, more generous and gentler than anything weve seen. A long, sweet season of heat. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com THE ENVOY CONDOCALL Anne LoGiudice TO FIND YOUR NEXT HOME561.676.0029SOLD IN 1 DAY, OVER LIST PRICE Contact me if you are interested, I have others coming on the market! 3 BEDROOM/3 BATHROOM END UNIT IN GATED COMMUNITY OVERLOOKING NEW BANYAN CAY GOLF COURSE 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).

No portion may be reproduced without the express written consent of Florida Media Group, LLC. OPINIONThe ballot ballgameIt happens several times a game: Ill announce to the world, The entire season rests on this pitch (shot/play/whatever). My friends long ago learned simply to ignore my sarcasm, which makes it difficult when Im being serious. Such as when I announce, The fate of the nation might rest on the upcoming election. For real. Even though Donald Trump is not on the ballot, the midterms will determine if Congress can take a role in restraining his worst impulses. It should be obvious to those horrified by his presidency that they must install an effective opposition, which is to say a Democratic majority not only in the House of Representatives, but also in the Senate. That can happen only if all those millions of people who claim to be part of a resistance show up at the polling places in massive numbers, turnout that will overwhelm those in Trumps so-called base who will show up inspired by his message of hate and ignorance, and his constant stream of outright lies. That is a big if. Its always a challenge to Democratic Party leadership to get those on the left to find common ground with those in the middle, particularly when that leadership is nonexistent. Turnout for midterm elections is low anyway, but it will be high for those who are passionately pro-gun and anti-immigrant, meaning the pro-Trump millions. A large portion of the anti-Trump crowd is really just insipid about most everything, except maybe their anti-Donald feelings. In addition, those who are center and left are afflicted by a sense of fair play. That has never concerned those on the right. The fact of the matter is, in politics, as legendary pro football coach Vince Lombardi said, Winning isnt everything, its the only thing. You cant deliver a knockout in a slugfest if youre wringing your hands at whatever the other side is doing. And the Trumpsters are always doing something abusive. With all that, Democrats are in for a brawl. Every time they hear someone predict that victory for control of the House is assured, their leaders, whomever they are, should cringe. Such cockiness breeds lethargy, which becomes a feeling that its not all that important to stand in line at the polling places. Besides, taking back the House is not enough. The Democrats really need the Senate, too, and thats an uphill battle. Under Mitch McConnell and the Republicans, the United States Senate has merely enabled Donald Trump and pursued conservative goals that favor the wealthy at the expense of everyone else. Besides, its only the Senate that can block the federal court system from being taken over by regressive hardliners. They are ruthless when it comes to packing the judiciary. If, perchance, the various charges of sexual assault against Brett Kavanaugh are enough to send his nomination down in flames, the Republicans in Trumps White House will simply name another reactionary. Only a Democratic Senate can advise and deny consent. Trump is fully aware that a Democratic Congress, with its broad subpoena power, can make his life a living hell. Unless those who oppose Trump all get out and vote, theyll be forfeiting this vital election to his team and forfeiting the country. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN.Kavanaugh assault validates TrumpThe attempted political assassination of Brett Kavanaugh is bad for the country, but good for a Trumpian attitude toward American politics. The last-minute ambush validates key assumptions of Donald Trumps supporters that fueled his rise and buttress him in office, no matter how rocky the ride has been or will become. At least three premises have been underlined by tawdry events of the past weeks. First, that good character is no defense. If you are John McCain, who genuinely tried to do the right thing and carefully cultivated a relationship with the media over decades, they will still call you a racist when you run against Barack Obama. If you are Mitt Romney, an exceptionally earnest and decent man, they will make you into a heartless and despicable vulture capitalist, also for the offense of campaigning against Obama. If you are Brett Kavanaugh, a respected member of the legal establishment who doesnt have a flyspeck on his record across decades of public service in Washington, they will come up with dubious accusations of wrongdoing from decades ago when you were a teenager. Second, that the media is an unremitting political and cultural adversary. In the Kavanaugh controversy, the press has been wholly on the other side, presuming his guilt and valorizing his accusers and their supporters, including Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono, whose most famous contribution to the debate was telling men to shut up. Third, that politics isnt just rough-andtumble; its red in tooth and claw. Process and norms are nice, but they go out the window as soon as something important is at stake, like a potential fifth vote on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe vs. Wade. Senate Democrats may delicately talk about the importance of norms and civility on Sunday shows, but watch how they act. They sat on an accusation throughout an extensive process of vetting and questioning a nominee, then declared it dispositive evidence against his confirmation when it leaked at the 11th hour. They delayed a hearing with Christine Blasey Ford long enough to allow time for the second accuser to be persuaded to come forward. All of this plays into Trumps support. Surely, a reason that the president appealed to many Republicans in the first place, despite his extravagant personal failings, was that they had decided that virtuous men would get smeared and chewed up by the oppositions meat grinder, so why be a stickler for standards? If Trumps attacks against the media are over-the-top and sometimes disgraceful, at least he understands the score. He may not be a constitutionalist, but he will be faithful to his own side, and fiercely battle it out with his political opponents. The logic of this dynamic is risky. It can be self-defeating, and lead down the road of supporting, say, a Roy Moore, a kooky candidate doomed even in red Alabama. It can be corrupting, if character and standards are no longer considered important. But the dark view of our politics that has driven the Trump phenomenon for three years now is impossible to gainsay. Who can watch the frenzied assault on Brett Kavanaugh and say that its wrong?

Pink Chair Project spreads inspiring images of survival JUPITER MEDICAL CENTERWhen she was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2014, Pat Maher quickly realized that focusing on her faith and embracing beliefs that centered on her best and highest good would be essential to her survival. Rather than let sad, morbid stories about the disease influence her outlook, she surrounded herself with positive people and created her own uplifting story of hope and recovery. Ms. Maher is sharing her story through the Pink Chair Project, a new initiative presented by Jupiter Medical Center and the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center to raise awareness about breast cancer and breast health. She is among a group of breast cancer survivors and patients the hospital invited to decorate chairs themselves or with the assistance of volunteer artists in themes that represent their personal source of inspiration for recovery. The chairs will be displayed at various locations in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens and Jupiter. In a spirit of camaraderie and shared sentiments, Ms. Maher joined several Pink Chair Project participants in early September at a chair decorating party at the Lighthouse ArtCenter in Tequesta, where they worked on their inspirational designs. At the top of the chair is my belief and personal experience that with God, all things are possible, Ms. Maher said. The seat of her chair features two hands that are reaching and connecting in unity as they are surrounded by words of inspiration that enhanced her wellbeing, such as divine guidance, heartfelt connections, harmony, grace and more. With chairs like Ms. Mahers and others in locations throughout the community, the Pink Chair Project is raising awareness about breast cancer in a visually heartwarming way that organizers hope will remind women about the importance of annual examinations for early detection. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women, except for skin cancers, and second only to lung cancer as the leading cause of death among women. The American Cancer Society estimates that there are more than 3.1 million breast cancer survivors in the United States including women still being treated and those who have completed treatment. The Pink Chair Project is a beautiful way to pay tribute to this group of courageous women, some of whom are newly diagnosed or living with metastatic breast cancer, while others are in remission, said Dr. Nancy Taft, medical director of Jupiter Medical Centers Comprehensive Breast Care Program. At each stage of their diagnosis and treatment, they have displayed courage and resolve. We are honored to share their stories through this project and, hopefully, inspire others who are facing a similar challenge.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYof the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties. We know that great ideas will come together and inspire even greater grassroots action. Daryl Houston, community investment officer for the foundation, says the most rewarding aspect of the program is that it serves as a reminder to everyone in the community that their voice matters. What people have to say will collectively inspire greater impact, Mr. Houston said. Taking part in this initiative is simple as these conversations can take place during breakfast, lunch, dinner or even during a coffee break or cocktail hour. We look forward to hearing from the diverse voices of this community that take time to share their perspective. He hopes the initiative will bring together thousands of residents from all walks of life to share in a mealtime conversation. We just want them to talk about concerns and issues that they think are taking place in the community, but also to afford them an opportunity to discuss ways possible of strengthening our community and make it a better place to live and work for all residents, Mr. Houston said. Anyone can be part of discussions and there is no charge to participate. If you work, live, worship, attend school in Palm Beach or Martin counties, were asking you to be a part of it, just to sit down with family members, friends, colleagues, folks you work out with, folks you worship with, just to have an organic conversation about things you think are happening in the community that need to be addressed, Mr. Houston said. Were not going to the conversation with one target to talk about. We want it to be really organic, so you can hear the voices you typically dont hear. Where are all of these On the Table tables? Its really organic in how it all operates, he explained. You can have it hosted at a restaurant. You can meet in the park with a group of folks. You could be at your place of work. Or it could be at your place of worship, or at your home around the kitchen table. Theres no specific location that it has to be. Its just really about bringing folks together and having these conversations and really getting the understanding of what the mindset is. We want to know what people are thinking in terms of our community and how to build on it. One of the super hosts on Oct. 24 will be the Downtown Development Authority in West Palm Beach, where associate director Teneka James is looking forward to the event. We love the idea and the concept behind it, Ms. James said. We think this is a great way to engage the community. Were going to set up our tables in the 500 block of Clematis Street. Well be encouraging our participants to dine at one of our restaurants on the street and just kind of engage in conversation. They can bring their food with them to the table, or just come, sit down and talk. She said shes not sure what topics will come up at the DDA tables, but suspects business recruitment may be one of them. Honestly, I dont know what the topics will be. Im curious to see what the topics are and what is brought up. Were excited to see what the questions are and who is going to participate. The downtown businesses are excited, too. Athary Koning, who is in charge of special events and fund development at The Arc of Palm Beach County and who will be one of the facilitators, is also enthusiastic about On the Table. We love being part of this and think its a great initiative, she said. Were having an internal lunch to start the conversation. Our objective is to get different opinions from people with varied backgrounds. This will be great for team building since we often dont have the time to do this sort of thing. Like Ms. James, Ms. Konig is not sure what topics will arise. The great thing about this is you go in with expectations and youre completely blown out of the water, she said. There are issues, but then there are so many offshoots and tangents. At the conclusion of the gatherings participants will be asked to complete a brief survey via their mobile phones, email, or in handwritten form, according to Mr. Houston. The surveys will be compiled by national research firms Hart Research and Public Opinion Strategies to analyze the issues and ideas for community improvement that resulted from the days discussions. The Community Foundation will publicly share these outcomes, including trends, common themes and new collaborations developed, in order to help Palm Beach and Martin Counties determine how best to advance some of the ideas and solutions generated. The Community Foundation is one of 10 foundations across the U.S. participating in On the Table after a successful pilot in 2017. On the Table replicates an annual civic engagement initiative of the same name developed by The Chicago Community Trust in 2014. Support for On the Table advances the Knight Foundations work to help cities attract and keep talented people, expand economic opportunity and create a culture of civic engagement. The Knight Foundation maintains that successful communities are equitable, inclusive and participatory. Other On the Table cities include Akron, Ohio; Charlotte, N.C.; Columbus, Ga.; Gary, Ind.; Lexington, Ky; Macon, Ga; Miami, Philadelphia and San Jose. Participation is free.

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-year-old 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 while offering suspense and smiles that any reader will enjoy.About the authorThis is historian Dorothy Seymour Mills 30th book.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYnow more than 1,700 physicians in Florida for you to choose from. Via doctors orders, patients who suffer from various ailments such as chronic pain, migraines, PTSD, anxiety and lifethreatening illnesses are entered into a state registry and apply for a medical marijuana identification card. As of press time, there were close to 130,000 active state ID card holders. Once you have your card, which the state says takes about a week, you can go to a dispensary and purchase marijuana. There are only 14 companies approved by the Department of Health called Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers that operate 55 retail storefront dispensaries throughout Florida. MMTCs are the only businesses allowed to grow, process and sell the product in the state. So you have to do everything from seed to sale, said Michael Costa, regional dispensary operations manager for Curaleaf, an MMTC that runs 11 dispensaries in Florida, including in Fort Myers and Lake Worth. Curaleafs marijuana plants are grown and processed in Miami-Dade County. The state limited MMTCs to 25 dispensaries each in Florida, so youll probably see new ones popping up. Since Florida does not allow smoking marijuana, vaping is the thing closest to it. Curaleafs most popular products are vape cartridges that are either filled with oil infused with marijuana compounds or the dried flower or bud itself sealed inside a pod. Notably, cannabis with significant amounts of THC is much more popular than the low-THC varieties. In just the week of Sept. 14 to 21, retail stores dispensed 40.1 million milligrams (or 1,446 ounces) of medical cannabis, including 1.9 million milligrams of the low-THC variety, the DOH says. Its still illegal to own or grow the flower, or roll and smoke a joint, though this state rule is being challenged in court, one of many areas of litigation over Floridas implementation of Amendment 2. Right now you can pretty much just buy edibles and oils, and you can vape. Depending on your doctors recommendation, there are different varieties and strengths. While CBD (cannabidiol) oils provide benefits without getting you high, others with more THC do cause those effects. Usually doctors suggest a combination of the two. Pretty easy, right? So where do you start? What doctor should you see? Are there dispensaries near you? Check our updated cannabis guide and dispensary map on the following pages to get to the bottom of it all. The amount of marijuana consumed in the United States is roughly estimated as a $10 billion to $20 billion business. These numbers are far from perfectly accurate as for the most part, transactions for product are mostly off the books because sales and consumption are still federally prohibited. States such as Colorado, Washington, California, Oregon, Maine, New Hampshire and Alaska, which have legalized recreational use, have seen increases in sales and tax proceeds in addition to population surges and rising median real estate values. In Florida, medical cannabis sales are currently not taxed. In addition to getting the bottom of the basics a consumer may wonder about, there are a few weird questions we had to ask. Can you overdose on marijuana? No. You cannot overdose and die from marijuana. But if you take way too much which is especially easy to do with tasty edibles like brownies its not uncommon to spend a few very long, unpleasant hours riddled with anxiety. Can you invest in marijuana companies? Yes. But first read Florida Weekly Money & Investing columnist Eric Bretan on why you should hold off on buying marijuana stocks in last weeks edition. How much will this industry be worth by 2020? Florida estimates a $1.6 billion industry by then not including the possibility that recreational pot will become legal. In this edition youll also find Q&As with local medical marijuana experts. That includes Fort Myers physician Dr. Gregory R. Sonn, who runs Iona Cannabis Clinic. He is one of a growing number of doctors certified to approve patients for an official Florida medical marijuana ID card and order a variety of products for them. Dr. Sonns Iona Cannabis Clinic has opened offices in Key West, Islamorada, and last month in Port Charlotte where Dr. Tucker Greene, who worked in emergency medicine and medical toxicology in Southwest Florida, including for 15 years at Cape Coral Hospital, will preside over exams. Were trying to broaden our patient base and provide more service to people in other areas, said Jodi Hahn, regional manager and executive assistant for Iona Cannabis Clinic. Also, Cole Peacock of Apothecary Specialists, a medical marijuana consulting firm, gives background on the emerging industry, how tough it is to become a state-approved grower and the regulations that undergird Floridas fledgling cannabis market.Why shouldnt you continue to buy illicit weed from your dealer and CBD oil from gas stations? For many marijuana smokers, it is relatively easy to get it from their local, albeit illicit, dealer. A quarter ounce baggie of fairly potent dried buds costs about $100 on the street. Dr. Sonn in Fort Myers estimates many patients spend $45 to $100 per month on product, though it could cost much more. A marijuana patch can cost $300 per month. And it costs $225 for an initial visit to Dr. Sonn, plus the cost of applying for a Florida ID card and renewing it every seven months. None of that is covered by insurance. So why not go to a dealer besides the obvious fact that it is illegal (possession of less than 20 grams is a firstdegree misdemeanor in Florida)? When youre buying cannabis off the street you dont know what youre getting, its not tested, you dont know what potency it has, you dont know if there are contaminants in it, Mr. Costa of Curaleaf said. Us being regulated by the Department of Health, we have to test everything for safety before it goes out our door. We also test for potency. And there is medical expertise. Lastly, there is the piece of the physician. Patients are typically working with physicians to allow physicians to manage their (use) in coordination with any other medications theyre taking. When it comes to CBD oil, Mr. Costa argues again that the approved medical variety is safer and more reliable in its production and dosing. So if you have a patient with seizures or various other conditions they will know that you are getting exactly what youre getting and you can rely on it, he said. Everything is tracked. Its very similar to a pharmaceutical or food manufacture that would have that same certification. Cannabis culture fest Interest in medical marijuana has become widespread even among some who have never used it in the past in any form. On Sept. 21, Dr. Sonn and his staff held an after-work Cannabis Culture Fest social seminar at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre. A huge marijuana-leaf ice sculpture greeted guests, who ranged in age from their 20s to the 80s. Most appeared to be aging baby boomers. Afterwards about 60 people, nearly half of the 125-person limit on the invitation, signed up for a visit to potentially become a Florida marijuana ID cardholder, said Iona Clinic regional manager Ms. Hahn. People mingled outside the auditorium, where Floridas Medical Marijuana Treatment Center businesses, which operate dispensaries, including Curaleaf and Trulieve, had displays and answered questions. At another table, Jaime Renee Cruz of Cruz Cannabis Cooking, and associate Ashleigh Rankin, showed attendees how to make marijuana candies. Fort Myers native Stephanie Sumasky, 27, is one of Dr. Sonns patients. She vapes (a cartridge filled with marijuana oil is fitted into a vape pen) as well as makes edibles to control pain and anxiety, and as a form of stress relief. Its awesome how many people its helping, she said. I just think its taken off. Its an awesome thing that a plant can help so many people. The fading, rearranging, but still prevalent stigma of marijuana culture was a theme underlying the event. One 81-year-old Fort Myers man who got a prescription to use CBD infused marijuana oil to control the pain and nausea associated with radiation treatment for prostate cancer declined to give his name. He puts six to 10 drops of CBD oil in his coffee each morning. I think there still is a stigma, he said. A Lee County high school teacher, Cape Coral resident Stephanie Peace, 44, said she wants to be honest with her students about marijuana and how it helped her after she was diagnosed with stage 4 lung WEEDFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOInside Curaleaf, an MMTC that runs 11 dispensaries in Florida, including in Fort Myers and Lake Worth.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2018 NEWS A11 SEE WEED, A12 cancer. But she treads carefully. In my profession I have to be super careful, she said. After her cancer diagnosis in 2015, the illness metastasized to other parts of her body. Although she had not previously been a recreational or medicinal user and didnt especially want the drug in her house, her loved ones had used it with success. Its worked for people close to me on arthritis and Alzheimers (symptoms), she said, and I thought, what do I have to lose? In 2016 she started taking marijuana, often by making her own edibles, and adjusting her own dose. The first time she tried it, she simply got high. But she also found it helped her cope with anxiety during a difficult time, boosted her energy level, helped her sleep and eased inflammation from her chemotherapy medication. Thanks to surgery and other treatment, her cancer is now in remission. She also believes marijuana may have increased the effectiveness of her chemotherapy, a claim that cant be proven for lack of research, though Dr. Sonn suggested in his presentation that cannabis could amplify the effect of other medications. No doctor can tell me, she said, how did the chemo and the cannabis affect each other? Dr. Sonn made his way around the room before attendees filed into an auditorium and munched on some provided snacks as he lectured and took questions for about 45 minutes. A physician who practiced hospice and palliative medicine for 18 years before starting his own health and wellness practice four years ago, Dr. Sonn has a passion for the potential medicinal effects of cannabis. I am a true believer in cannabis as medicine, he said. I believe its a natural source. Most of his patients are age 50 to 80, he said, and suffer from inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, that cannabis can help relieve. One man in the room called out, A lot of us, I think, are dying to decrease the opioids. Could marijuana help do that? More marijuana, fewer opioids? Dr. Sonn explained that it depends on each individuals level of commitment and situation but that marijuana can be used to wean patients off opioids. One of Dr. Sonns patients, a 49-yearold Cape Coral man named Scott, said marijuana helped him mostly stop taking opioid pain medication. He declined to give his last name because of the stilllingering stigma of impropriety around pot smoking, while almost no one would hide from being an occasional drinker. Theres definitely still a stigma to it, but its going the other way, man, it really is, he said. But theres still that and people dont believe its medicine. Around 2013, Scott started buying weed from a dealer and infused it with coconut oil using a countertop Magical Butter herb extractor. At the time he had been on prescribed opioids including Percocet and morphine for more than three years. The marijuana allowed him to wean himself off regular use of those harsher drugs, he claims, and by the time he went to Dr. Sonn in 2017 he was only taking one pill every now and then. The medical marijuana experience has allowed him more variety and control over his use of the drug, and allows him to experiment with new products. Theres a lot of variety and theyre coming out with new things, he said. I use em all. I vape. I usually take the (CBD oil) three times a day. Depending on his pain level, he adjusts how much CBD and THC he takes to find a balance that works for him. The last four days I slowed down on my nighttime THC, he said. Wash. Ore. Calif. Nev.

You cannot be impaired. And pregnancy information, which is mandatory by state regulations. >> How would recreational legalization change things for you? I think it would hurt marijuana as medicine because it would allow the casual user any product, which means the idea and prescription would be minimalized. Plus, my elderly or marijuana naive patient, which is 60 percent of my patients, would be reliant on a bud tender. (Same goes for ower.) Which if you were any other doctor in the area, would be a good thing. Most have minimum knowledge, but I know the medical and I teach and educate. >> What are the biggest obstacles to your business operating here in Florida? The other big companies in Florida were non-physicians. They came in to Florida from Nevada, Colorado and Arizona, advertised for a doctor and got started. I know; they hit me up early in the process. >> What are the biggest misconceptions you are seeing in our community when it comes to medicinal marijuana? They think they will be stoned all the time, or I dont want to give up my guns. >> Does insurance cover this? No. I doubt it ever will. I also think this is why it wont be legal at the federal level. Too much money to lose. Insurance companies, VA drug plans, Medicare Part D, the list goes on. Plus I dont think the government really wants the population as a whole to be healthy. >> What varieties of marijuana would you recommend? Depends on condition and patient and wanted outcomes. The entourage effect and micro dosing are (important considerations for me and my patients). >> What is the difference from those who self-medicate and the product that you offer? You mean illegal marijuana? One form is legal, consistent, available in all type of strength percentages. Completely reproducible. The other is illegal and you could go to jail.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYHe also has a choice between strains that include more Sativa marijuana, which typically leaves patients more awake, and Indica, which is more likely to cause drowsiness. Its all trial and error, what works for you and what makes your whole body sync up, he said. You have to figure out where you get loopy and where you dont so you can function. The marijuana is less powerful than the opioids in its level and immediacy of pain relief, he has found. The opiates, like you could take a pain med, a couple hours you feel total relief, he said. (Medical marijuana) will make things better but it doesnt make it totally go away. Another thing, you dont feel like a zombie either. (With opiates), youre in a daze. That doesnt happen now. A survey on cannabis research by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine found insufficient evidence to either support or refute the success of cannabis users achieving abstinence from other addictive substances. But a more recent study published in the American Journal of Public Health in November 2017 found that the legalization of recreational cannabis resulted in a modest short-term reduction in opioid-related deaths. Another study published in JAMA in May found that there was a reduction in opioids prescribed in the Medicare Part D population in states with medical marijuana policies. FDA UN-approved Dr. Gene D. Mahaney, president and medical director of Pain Management Consultants in Fort Myers, is a specialist in anesthesiology, pain management and addiction medicine. Dr. Mahaney is hesitant to write orders for medical marijuana for patients because the drugs ongoing illegal status at the federal level could put his practice at risk of being prosecuted, even if thats unlikely. So it puts us in a bit of a quandary in that patients we think would be appropriate, there is a concern of the DEA coming in and taking away your license for doing that, he said, noting that that has happened in California and Oregon. (And) anyone who receives federal funding would be at risk. The federal Drug Enforcement Administration still classifies marijuana along with heroin and other hard drugs as a schedule I controlled substance with no currently accepted medical use a definition denied by states including Florida, by patients, doctors, and researchers across the world. While there has never been an overdose death attributed to marijuana and many doctors call it safer than alcohol, the DEA lists morphine, oxycodone, and even fentanyl, drugs which continue to cause thousands of overdose deaths each year, as having a lower potential for abuse than cannabis. The Rohrabacher-Farr amendment passed in 2014 prevented the U.S. Department of Justice from using federal funds to interfere with states medical marijuana laws, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. So there is some protection for doctors, patients and providers at the state level, Mr. Costa of Curaleaf said. But early this year, Attorney General Jeff Sessions appeared to reverse or weaken that rule in a memo giving U.S. Attorneys permission to once again prosecute in any state based on the old Controlled Substances Act of 1970, which prohibits cultivation, distribution, and possession of pot. Dr. Mahaney and other physicians are against the federal ban because it has effectively made impossible at least in the United States the gold standard, randomized controlled studies that could potentially provide definitive evidence of some of the claims patients have made about marijuanas effectiveness and vastly expand its use and effectiveness as medicine. Theres so much we dont know with it, Dr. Mahaney said. Its very hard to quantify its exact potential, to be honest. The lack of research and the federal ban has also led to a medical marijuana market where mainstream providers may be left out of the loop and patients often dont get accurate information, Dr. Mahaney said. They may get directions for use from a clerk at a dispensary rather than a highly trained pharmacist, for instance. I think unfortunately the process for obtaining medical marijuana has been problematic for patients. Thats not to say there hasnt been substantive research. Dr. Mahaney points out robust studies in Israel and the Netherlands, and is convinced of marijuanas effectiveness in treating some ailments: nausea (related to chemotherapy), seizures, as a sedative, and for mild pain relief. He believes marijuana could help patients reduce though not replace opioids and other prescription drugs. As a pure analgesic, its not much stronger than Tylenol No. 3, he said, a pain reliever that includes acetaminophen and codeine. I think (medical marijuana) would be a good adjunct for pain management if it could be used in the context of replacing some of the benzodiazepines (Xanax, for example) and may be used in reducing the amount of narcotics people take.Survey of cannabis research finds more research needed In contradiction to the DEAs severe stance on weed, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in 2017 published a comprehensive survey of marijuana research, recommending that steps be taken to overcome regulatory barriers that may make it difficult to do research on marijuanas health effects. The report details about 100 reports on cannabis since 1999 and concludes based on the quality of the research how conclusive the results are. For instance, it found conclusive or substantial evidence that cannabis or cannabinoids are effective in treating chronic pain in adults, chemotherapyinduced nausea and vomiting, and improving patient-reported symptoms of multiple sclerosis. Maybe the most conclusive research of all is that more research is needed. The list of conditions for which there is limited or insufficient evidence to support claims associated with marijuana, include, to name just a few: as a treatment for cancers, epilepsy, the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, curing addictions, improving symptoms of dementia, of post-traumatic stress syndrome, and better o utcomes after a traumatic brain injury. There is also substantial evidence of cannabis use and increased risk of car crashes, as well as the development of schizophrenia and other psychoses, especially among frequent users. A U.S. Department of Health and Human Services web page notes that cannabis has been used for a variety of health conditions for at least 3,000 years. Dr. Mahaney sees the federal government backing off approach eventually, if and when more states legalize the drug. In spite of federal rules, thats clearly not stopping the medical marijuana industry from rolling ahead in Florida, at least as far as possible within the states own limits. Like weedsMichigan-based Liberate Physician Centers employs doctors and staff at clinics there and in Illinois, Colorado and Florida. After officially opening its first Sunshine State office in West Palm Beach in 2015 in anticipation of the 2016 vote Liberate has opened clinics both by corporate expansion and franchising in Jacksonville, Port Charlotte, Fort Myers and Naples. Were working on rolling out 10 new offices across the state, said the companys chief operating officer, Mark Turgeon, who oversees the Palm Beach office. Potential areas of expansion include all sides of Florida. Mr. Turgeon mentioned Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Tampa, Lakeland, Jacksonville and Orlando as possible locations. Sensitive to the perception of the medical side of business catering to recreational users, he pointed out, this is not about pot heads and kids getting stoned or anything like that. Liberate patients average age in Florida is mid-50s. So our whole belief is, our physician centers are basically like wellness centers and were helping people with pain management in a holistic method, not writing prescriptions but making recommendations to people who qualify for medical marijuana cards, he said. We feel that and we know that we have changed peoples lives and we have testimonials from patients who got off the opioids and dont have all those side effects anymore. You cant get addicted to marijuana. And nobodys ever died (of an overdose) from marijuana. And there are people dying every day from opioid addiction and overdose. But he also suggests that there is a significant amount of crossover between medical and recreational use. When Florida legalizes recreational marijuana, which some predict will happen in perhaps five to 10 years, that could change the market, he said. Recreational kind of changes the playing field a little bit because everybody can just walk in to a dispensary and get what they need, they dont need to go through getting a medical marijuana card anymore. WEEDFrom page 11Cole Peacock Q&A Mr. Peacock is a consultant for Apothecary Services, which advises those interested in beginning a medical marijuana business >> How hard is it to get approved to grow marijuana in the state? The state imposed stringent quali cations to receive a license ranging from 30-plus years of farming / growing in Florida to an exhaustive application process that, on average, costs multimillions with no guarantee of being rewarded a license. It is an extremely dif cult process for license holders to receive the right to operate in Florida. Rightfully so, as the state wants to ensure that this industry is regulated correctly so we do not have shady businesses trying to operate in our state. This follows the core values of Apothecary Specialists, founded in 2016, with the goal of providing best-of-breed services at the legislative and local levels, retail operations and preferred real estate locations. AS believes successful and sustainable companies in the medical marijuana sector share a common denominator of implementing best practices at every level of their companies. That stated, our team of industry experts and consultants, regulatory analysts, lobbyists, retail executives, marketing experts, writers and researchers provides expertise in all areas needed for our clients. >> How big do you see this getting in Florida? Based on industry projections and the steady growth over the last year, this industry is set to be one of the largest industries in the state of Florida. Arcview Market Research, the leading publisher of cannabis market research, in partnership with New Frontier Data, the cannabis Big Data and analytics authority, has released its Florida Legal Cannabis Market State Pro le, which shows the potential growth of the medical market after Florida voters overwhelmingly chose to legalize medical marijuana with more than 70 percent of the vote. The of cial Arcview Market Research projection for the Florida market is $1.6 billion by 2020 at a compound annual growth rate of 140 percent. >> Do you see Florida ever getting recreational marijuana use approved? If so, how will that affect your business? We believe Florida has the potential to go recreational in the next ve to 10 years as it becomes a more accepted means of medicating. That time period could change depending on how/if the political landscape changes, but in general, watching other states, the recreational market tends to follow as the population accepts the medicine. That said, the industry is so young the focus now is to properly identify dispensary locations, building community relationships and respect as well as serving the patients in need and ensuring those patients can receive the best care. Our real estate business is securing locations not only for the current medical cannabis industry but also for the potential of recreational so that we are positioned with sustainable locations well into the future. >> What are the biggest misconceptions you see in our community when it comes to medicinal marijuana? Not being educated about the industry and how it will operate in our state. The reality in Florida is medical marijuana is legal and it is going to be a signi cant industry in our state. The state of Florida implemented a highly regulated platform for the industry that aligns with pharmacy protocol and procedures which truly helps make the industry operate at the highest professional standards. Florida was smart to implement a pharmacy-like process with a state registry of sales from all license holders to prevent any types of abuse, illegal sales or improper management. This protects the patients and businesses. For those who think there will be ashing pot signs outside of a dispensary you may be disappointed as that is not allowed in Florida, nor is a walk-in dispensary. Patients have to see a state approved medical cannabis doctor and receive proper evaluations based on their aliments. Once the state approves the patient he can enter a dispensary and receive a product that matches his prescription, much like a visit to CVS. >> How do you see jobs being created? This will be one of the largest employment industries in the state. You have thousands and thousands of jobs being created by each license holder not to mention the companies being created to support the industry. The job market will produce cannabis doctors with full staff and multiple locations, dispensaries that will employ thousands of jobs ranging from management positions to customer service positions. The security companies that are hired to protect the grow facilities and dispensaries. Marketing companies, industry consultants, testing labs with staf ng that ranges from high-level scientist to lab managers as well as the grow facilities that will have full staf ng from master growers, multiple team growers budtenders, operations, marketing, branding, human resources and general support staff. I truly believe this industry will eventually be in the top tier of jobs creation in the state of Florida. >> What is the biggest difference over where Florida is with medical marijuana now, over last year? The industry is everchanging and the biggest difference is the increase in patient count and demand for products. Coupled with that are several potential licensee lawsuits and industry regulations pertaining to dispensary operations. I believe companies like ours with expertise in the industry will play a major role in upcoming legislation, the expansion and operations of dispensaries and real estate locations.

No one has died from a marijuana overdose ... This is going to be a huge market in Florida. Dr. Robert Brueck, Liberate Physician CentersI think medical marijuana was long overdue for use as an effective tool to overcome opioid addiction. I believed that as a prosecutor and I believe it now. I have seen evidence of those benefits, with close, beloved friends or colleagues using medical marijuana to ease heartwrenching suffering and life-damaging addiction. Douglas Molloy, defense attorney with over 30 years in the criminal justice system@FLGovScott has done everything in his power to block the will of the people. I had to sue and win. Now hes appealing. @RonDeSantisFL is more of the same. @AndrewGillum would drop the appeal day one and backs my effort to legalize it! John Morgan, Morgan & Morgan; forthepeople.comAs leaders of this state, we must support and swiftly implement constitutional amendments. As attorney general, I pledge to adhere to that expectation and responsibility and recognize that over 70 percent of Floridians agreed that marijuana should be legal in medicinal form. After extensive hearings, the legislature, in balancing its responsibility to protect the welfare of Floridians with its mandate to allow for medicinal use of marijuana, enacted a law that did not permit the smokable form of marijuana, but made the drug legal for specific purposes. When a defense of state law is justifiable, there exists a duty to defend that law in court and, thus, the litigation to clarify the amendments scope is reasonable and not unexpected in light of the significant change to Floridas drug laws. Ashley Moody, Republican nominee for Florida attorney generalMedical marijuana is a crucial alternative to deadly and addictive opioids. People suffering from terrible conditions have found relief, and weve seen a 25 percent reduction in deaths by opioid overdoes in states which have allowed medical marijuana. This growing industry strengthens our economy while ensuring access to medicine that people need badly.

This was a widely expected move by the Fed and most analysts and investors had no major reaction to it. However, President Trump was not a big fan of the Fed s actions. He stated, Im not happy about that. Id rather pay down debt or do other things, create more jobs. The presidents point was that no one really likes higher interest rates, other than maybe banks or other lenders. Is the Fed raising rates just to boost the banking sector? Or is there another reason for the Fed to increase interest rates and how does that affect the rest of the economy? When the Fed announces that it is increasing or decreasing interest rates, it is generally referring to its benchmark rate, the Fed Funds Interest Rate. Surprisingly, the Fed funds rate is not a government interest rate at all. Instead, it is the interest rate that banks charge to lend money to one another so that they can maintain their reserve requireericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com SEE INVESTING, A15

Author and businessman Paul Krasnow says it can also be a priceless opportunity to reinvent yourself. When you face a setback in your life, you have two choices, says Mr. Krasnow, author of The Success Code: A Guide for Achieving Your Personal Best in Business and Life. Remain stuck or move forward; its that simple, he says. Life is too short to spend it stuck and miserable. Take action now to change your life or get ready to watch life pass you by. He speaks from experience. A former clothier, he went bankrupt early in his professional life, thanks to bad timing and hard luck. This failure could have derailed his future, but instead, he decided to fight for his life with everything he had. The Success Code tells the story of Mr. Krasnows journey, from his modest beginnings in 1940s Los Angeles, to starting over again after business failure, to his epic career rise as a financial representative at Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company. Reinventing yourself demands change, he says. No matter how dire your circumstances, you can make changes today that will prepare you for a better tomorrow. You may have to find a new way to make a living, or start over in a new city, or take a big risk that terrifies you. Still, you have to be willing to change. It may not always be easy, but it sure beats staying stuck for the rest of your life. Here are some of his tips on how to embrace change and reinvent yourself: Realize its never too late During the course of your lifetime, you will be called upon to reinvent yourself time and time again. Dont let yourself stay stuck in what you know. Make the most of the resilience you now have under your belt with overcoming previous challenges and strive for new horizons. Take an honest look at your life Muster the courage to look at your life and figure out where youve gone wrong and the changes you need to make to get back on track. Own up to the mistakes you have made and take responsibility for the part you played in getting yourself stuck. This kind of brutal honesty is not for the faint of heart, but it can free you up to learn from the painful consequences you are facing today. Move forward; just do it Change is not rocket science, Mr. Krasnow says. We all have a tendency to make life so complicated when it doesnt have to be. Simply make a decision to move forward. Dont try; just do it. People say theyre going to try to change. Try? There is no such thing. Theres doing it or not doing it. Dream big You are only as successful as your perceived limitations. How often do you limit yourself when envisioning the success you are capable of achieving? Dont settle for the limited vista of your present-day life. Instead, allow yourself to be willing to travel well beyond the bounds of the landscapes you might not be able to imagine today. Stay focused Once you decide to make a change in your life, its time to get serious and focus on your goals. Think of life as a journey in a train that travels on a track, Mr. Krasnow says. Each track leads to a specific destination. Make a point of staying on the track of your choice, without getting distracted and switching tracks. If you stay focused, you will certainly reach your desired destination. Pace yourself Making a major life change requires a steady pace. You work at it each day and keep at it (and then keep at it some more). Remember that extraordinary creations are not built in a day through occasional bursts of effort, but rather are crafted over long periods of time with daily, steady tasks. Its a marathon; stop exhausting yourself by sprinting from place to place. Know that failure is not an option When you realize that failure is not an option, it becomes clear that there is no stopping at the first obstacle you encounter along the way. There is an opening, even in the most stubborn of barricades, Mr. Krasnow says. Where is the opening in your current wall of obstacles? Is there a secret passage you had overlooked but is now emerging in front of you? Take that hidden path and forge ahead. Just keep your eye on where you want to go; you might find that a setback along the way was actually a shortcut to your desired destination. We all know that change is not the most comfortable part of our lives, Mr. Krasnow concludes. But know that the process of transformation is a gratifying experience, providing you find the courage to do it. You can adapt. You can take a new path in your life. And you will undoubtedly be better for it in the long run. REINVENTFrom page 14KRASNOW ments on an overnight basis. But if the Fed funds rate is set by individual banks, how can the Fed raise or lower this key rate? It does so by increasing or decreasing the amount of money in circulation. If the Fed wants to increase the rate like it did last week, it would sell bonds and other securities to the banks in exchange for cash. This cash would be taken out of circulation. With less cash available, more banks would demand short-term loans to maintain their reserve requirements. Higher demand for loans translates to higher interest rates. And the Fed would operate in reverse if it wanted to lower rates by buying bonds, increasing the amount of cash in circulation. The Fed funds rate is so important because many key interest rates are based off this key metric. LIBOR, prime rate, credit card rates, floating rate mortgage rates and many business loan rates are all set from the Fed funds rate. Generally speaking, when the Fed increases its Fed funds rate, banks almost immediately raise the rates charged on many of its lending products. This is the reason that higher interest rates are generally good for banks and why bank stock prices typically rise when interest rates rise.But the Fed does not raise rates just to help banks. Instead, it is a key tool in helping to keep the economy balanced and inflation in check. When the Fed funds rate is higher, banks costs of funds are higher so they must charge a higher interest rate to their customers to maintain their profit margins. That means it costs more to buy a house, buy a car, buy clothes with credit card debt or build a new factory funded by debt. All of these things hurt consumer and business spending as well as job growth, which is why the president was upset about the Fed move. However, the Fed raises rates knowing it causes some near-term pain to the economy because it hopes to avoid much greater damage in the future. One of the most damaging influences on an economy is runaway inflation. Examples of this include Germany before World War II and present-day Venezuela. High inflation can feed on itself until it is completely out of control and destroys the entire economic system. Higher interest rates, slower economic growth and a smaller money supply can bring down inflation, which is a key reason that the Fed increases rates at the first sign inflation is starting to increase. A second reason the Fed increases rates is that higher rates enable the Fed to lower rates when the economy is struggling to grow. Just as higher rates throttle back economic growth and spending, lowering rates often spurs growth as banks lend more at lower rates and people are more likely to borrow to fund their consumption and investment. But if rates are low to begin with, the Fed would be limited in its ability to drop rates when needed in a more urgent situation. So it is willing to trade a slightly less robust economy today for the ability to juice the economy when needed in the future.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2018 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE A17 EARL ON CARSAn open letter to Florida car dealers: Eliminate the dealer feeI wrote this letter to Florida car dealers a decade ago and, so far, Ive received no repliesat least from car dealers. But Ive received thousands of replies from car buyers thanking me for taking a stand against the Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practice of dealer fees. Im giving it another try.Dear Fellow Florida Car Dealer, I started in the retail auto business in 1968 and I have seen a lot of changes in the way we dealers sell cars and the expectations of our customers. My remarks in this column are made sincerely and with a positive intent toward you and your customers. Im not trying to tell you how to run your business; Im suggesting a change that will reward both you and your customers. Every car dealer in Florida (except me) adds charges to the price of the cars he sells, variously referred to as a dealer fee (documentary fee, dealer prep fee, electronic filing fee, notary fee, closing fee, tag agency fee, e-filing fee). This charge is printed on your buyers orders and is programmed into your computers. It is regulated in many states. You charge this fee to every customer and it ranges from a few hundred dollars to several thousand. Florida law requires that you disclose in writing on the buyers order that this charge represents profit to the dealer. Florida law also requires that you include this fee in all advertised prices. You dont usually do this, and you get around the law by limiting the number of advertised vehicles (as few as one). You also disclose only in the fine print that there is a dealer fee, but dont include in the price. The argument that I hear from most car dealers is that the dealer fee is disclosed to the buyer on his buyers order. But, most car buyers are totally unaware that they are paying this. Who reads all the voluminous paperwork associated with buying a car? The few who notice it assume it is an official fee like state sales tax or license and registration fee. Those few astute buyers who do question the fee are told that your dealership must charge this fee on very car which is not true. These astute buyers are also told that all other car dealers charge similar fees. This is almost true, but my dealership does not. You charge this fee simply to increase the price of the car and your profit in such a manner that it is not noticed by your customer. This is just plain wrong. Dealers will admit this to me in private conversations and some will admit that they have considered eliminating the fee as I have but are afraid of the drastic effect to their bottom line. This extra, unseen profit is even better for you because you dont pay your salesmen a commission on it. Thats being unfair to your employees as well as your customers. When the rare buyer objects to the dealer fee, the right thing to do would be to decrease the quoted price of the car by the amount of the dealer fee. This would have the same net effect of removing it. The salesman wont permit this because he will lose his commission (typically 25 percent) on the decrease in his commissionable gross profit. I dont profess to be some always perfect holier than thou car dealer. Although, I never did anything illegal, when I look at some of my advertising and sales tactics 20-plus years ago and more, I am not always proud. But, I have evolved as my customers have evolved. My customers expectations, level of education, and sophistication are much higher today. Your customers are no different. As I began treating my customers, and employees, better I discovered that they began treating me better. Yes, I used to charge a dealer fee ($495), and when I stopped charging it many years ago, it was scary. But I did it because I could no longer, in good conscience, mislead my customers. Just because everybody else was doing the same thing did not make it right. My profit per car did drop by about the amount of the dealer fee when I stopped charging it. But, when my customers realized that I was now giving them a fair shake and quoting the complete out-the-door price with no surprises the word spread. My volume began to rise rapidly. Sure, I was making a few hundred dollars less per car, but I was selling a lot more cars. I was, and am, selling to a lot of your former customers. My bottom line is far better than it was when I was charging a dealer fee. Im the largest volume single point car dealer between Orlando and Coconut Creek. Lots of people will read this letter and learn why they should buy a car from me and not you. Im aware that most dealers who read this will either get angry and ignore it or not have the courage to follow my lead. If youre the exception, call me at 561-358-1474. Sincerely, Ear l S t ewart earlSTEWARTearls@estoyota.com561-358-1474 BEHIND THE WHEELCamaro is nostalgia with substanceThe Chevrolet Camaro has an advantage wherever its parked. The name has been with us for over half a century, and so its hard to find someone who hasnt had one on their shopping list at one time. It ensures a thumbs-up from any octane-driven crowd. While impressing strangers is a great feeling for the ego, Chevy appears to understand that there needs to be more substance than just the muscle car nostalgia. Our test convertible is optioned to be thoughtful inside and out while still providing classic V8 power. The white paint is like a blank canvas showcasing the dark elements of the large grille, furrowed brow headlights and hood vents. The black folding roof and tinted windows pair with these for an almost two-tone appearance. It creates one of the few ragtop convertibles that looks great with the roof in place. Opening it up to the world reveals even more attitude. There are plenty of black elements inside to continue the same appeal it had with the top in place. Now its joined by aggressive red inserts on the leather seats, door panels and other accents. This matches the red hash marks on the fenders a feature borrowed from the Grand Sport Corvettes. The result is a car thats well coordinated inside and out. Its a thoughtful and personal look, but a lot of option boxes are needed for this level of consideration. Our test car was a 2SS version of the Camaro, and thats one of the most loaded packages around. It comes with a head-up display, premium audio system, wireless phone charging and heated and cooled seats (a great convertible feature.) All of this, plus all the color options creates a car approaching $53K. Theres a refreshed car coming in 2019, so now is the time of year for good discounts. For those who think thats still a bit much for a Chevy, the Camaro convertible starts at $32,900. Even the base 1LS model is well-equipped with a touchscreen infotainment system, power front seats and a nifty automatic climate control system that doesnt take up much precious dash space. Power windows and a power convertible top are also standard. Few droptops require manual labor anymore, but its nice to acknowledge never needing to leave the drivers seat to open the car up to the world. As attractive as the packaging may seem, the Camaro still suffers from the typical sports car ailments. The back seat is only for small children. Also, the muscular high door line creates less glass to let light inside. Owners will get used to this in the first few days, but new passengers might feel a little claustrophobic making for a particularly good excuse to keep the top down. Those who opt for the lower-priced convertible will be able to choose from a 275 horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder and a 375 hp V6. But those who pay the premium for a test car like ours get a 6.2-liter V8 with 455 hp. This motor does what a Camaro was meant to do: growl at lesser cars. The rumble is not loud enough to trigger letters from the homeowners association, but it does give the kind of bass that instantly makes other enthusiasts pay attention. Its worth mentioning again how many people fondly look on a classic American nameplate with a proper V8 rumble. Its a nice ego boost, especially when the convertible allows direct eye contact. But the secret is that the nostalgia is only skin deep. The Camaro SS convertible might have the look and sound of the traditional American muscle car, but its moves are modern and European. The steering is heavy and deliberate, the throttle response is linear and predictable and the suspension has a wonderful sense of grip that doesnt even lose cornering in the wet. It all creates a level of confidence thats usually reserved for a BMW M-series vehicle or something from Mercedes AMG. That poise makes it especially fun to enjoy the monster motor to its fullest. If there were a BMW badge on the front, this car would be praised for keeping its German composure while offering some American muscle car snarl. The fact that its a Camaro means it creates nostalgia in the parking lots, attracts fans with its rumble and secretly is refined for the driver. Thats a pretty convincing total package. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

PET TALESWorking dogs BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationIn Patagonia, the sheep are hardy, and the dogs are hardier. At Cerro Negro Estancia (Black Hill Ranch), halfway between Punta Arenas and Torres del Paine National Park in Chile, sheep are managed by a team of gauchos, herding dogs and flock guardian dogs. Together, they drive the sheep from winter to summer pastures and back again, direct them through chutes into stalls to be shorn of their heavy coats, and protect them from predators. The current reigning member of the team is Manta, a cross between a border collie and a Patagonian dog called a barbucho, also known as a Magellan sheepdog. Barbuchos are typically used with cattle, but when crossed with border collies, they make good sheepdogs. The cross combines the cleverness and trainability of the border collie with the endurance and weather-resistant coat of the barbucho. The goal is to create a working dog with traits suited to the climate and type of livestock worked. Breed is less important than behavior. If a dog has good working ability, he or she is brought into the gene pool. The result, in Mantas case anyway, is a dog with the black-and-white coloring of a border collie but a wirier coat and an ability to do anything shes asked at least as long as it doesnt require opposable thumbs or speech. One dog can work up to 300 sheep. With about 4,000 sheep on the ranch, plus some 300 head of cattle, a number of dogs stay busy. At 7 years of age, Manta is still going strong, but younger dogs are in training to take over her job. Other puppies go to neighboring estancias, where they are in high demand. Manta doesnt work alone. Shes aided by Great Pyrenees dogs who act as enforcers against the regions primary predator: the puma. The 3-yearold Great Pyrenees who greeted us at the estancia is a friendly family pet, but her relatives who guard flocks on the ranch dont take any guff from the big cats, and they arent especially fond of people, either. Brought up with lambs from an early age, the 80to 120-pound dogs are fierce protectors of their woolly charges. They work independently, and a pair of them stay in the field with flocks for days at a time. Their presence alone is often enough to deter pumas and send them packing to seek easier prey. Thats good for the ranchers, the sheep and the pumas themselves, who otherwise risk being shot for killing livestock money on the hoof. The Great Pyrenees originated in France, where the breed was used to protect flocks from wolves. The Kusanovic family, the owners of Cerro Negro, traveled widely and became familiar with the majestic white dogs in other countries. When they needed a guardian breed for their sheep, the Great Pyrenees was a natural choice, with a weather-resistant coat that allows them to thrive in cold weather and a serious, protective nature. Now they breed the dogs for themselves as well as selling them to other estancia owners, who appreciate the protection from puma predation. The pumas might not like it so much, but it protects them from being shot, and thats an important boost to the local economy, where puma trekking by wildlife enthusiasts is taking off. Visitors to Patagonia can see Manta and dogs like her demonstrate their abilities on estancias that offer tours, as well as at local shearing festivals, which usually run from October to the end of January (summer in the southern hemisphere). Pets of the Week>> Maci is a 5-year-old, 47-pound female mixed breed dog with a sweet personality that sometimes borders on the shy side. >> Maggie is a 5-year-old female cat that is quirky and loving.

B2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY COLLECTORS CORNER scott SIMMONS email@example.com The day we visited the Edison Home was a hot one. It was 1973 and I was 10 years old and I was on a fourth grade field trip. I remember the sweat pouring down our faces as the school buses dropped us off near the huge banyan tree that shades the museum and laboratory. The buses, like our classrooms at Orange River Elementary School, were not air-conditioned, and we longed for a breeze as we bumped and we bounced along Palm Beach Boulevard, past the motels, big houses and royal palm trees to downtown Fort Myers, before making the turn onto McGregor Boulevard and exiting the bus. For me, the Edison estate was a place of mystery. The houses were on one side of McGregor, and the only parts you could see were the rooftops hedges of croton and aralia and banks of the exotic shrubs and trees Thomas Edison had planted all but hid the views of the houses from the street. The buildings are quite visible from the road today, but back then, you literally had to lean over the white picket fences to see anything more. The hurricanes of 2004, 2005 and 2017 cleared all that vegetation. Edisons laboratory and museum were across the street, and thats where tours started. In the 1970s, many of the docents had been lab assistants to Edison himself, those lads of the teens and the 0s now old men themselves. We checked out the laboratory, where his lab coat hung just as he left it, then moved to the museum, where his cars and his inventions were on display, including phonographs, their painted Morning Glory horns offering a symphony of pinks and blues that stood in stark contrast to the low-fidelity scratches and squawks that came from the early recordings. At another display, I remember there being a large lightbulb. You can press this button and light up the entire room, the docent told us. I lingered at the display, all set to push the button, but w as chastised by another docent to stay with my group. I guess that hadnt been an invitation. My mother, grandmother and I often returned to the Edison Home and neighboring Henry Ford estate at Christmas to see the decorations. But it was 30 years before I returned to the museum portion of the property, to hear a holiday musical performance that included my niece and nephew. I looked the phonographs were still there so was the lightbulb. That time, I was not tempted to touch.

The Price: $150 The Skinny: Thomas Edisons creation in 1877 of a marketable phonograph was transformative for the first time, you could record and keep a copy of the sounds of peoples voices. Early recordings were primitive the sounds of thin, ghostly voices and tinny instruments arise from the scratches and surface noise of those first cylinder records. Little had changed in recording techniques by 1921, the year Victor first marketed this VV-50 portable phonograph singers and instrumentalists performed in front of a recording horn. There was no way to regulate the sound, other than by moving toward or away from the recording horn. Records became more true to sound in the late 1920s, with the advent of electrical recording processes that used microphones. This player was the Walkman or iPod of its day. You could take this phonograph with you on picnics or easily move it around the house, and tuck it out of the way. The wood case is pretty, and the phonograph still gives a thrill with the shrill sounds of the past. Dont forget: The West Palm Beach Antiques Festival Early buyer is noon-5 p.m. Oct. 5.

B6 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY And thats just the start. Running through Nov. 3, Play with Your Food! features 54 pieces never exhibited before. Acrylic and oil paintings, commercial photography, ceramics, mixed media and sculptures are among the offerings. Where to begin the gallery walk depends on whether one is a dessert-first kind of person. If Anita Lovitts swinging cured meats hanging near the entrance dont get you salivating, head toward the back and Ray Grosss gigantic soft-serve cones will. They are among the local artists the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County handpicked earlier this year for the food-themed show. I always wanted to do a show on food, but wanted to have a creative twist on it, said curator Nichole Hickey, who serves as manager of artist services at the council. In Chocolate Dip, Cherry Dip and Double Dip Chocolate, Mr. Gross nails that spongy characteristic of the Safe-T milk-and-honey cone, down to the sandy color and honeycomb design. The tallest of these voluptuous pillars stands at 32 inches. All three flaunt a glossy smooth surface and that hyper-realistic trait for which Mr. Gross is known. One appears to defy gravity with its swirled bright crown while another slowly pr ecipitates like a flavored creamy avalanche. Mr. Gross is one of two artists behind the GARALA interactive art studio and gallery that opened in CityPlace in February. A witty 2013 piece titled Sausages recreates the ambience of local Italian delis in New York City, where Ms. Lovitt lived for many years. She made the sausages out of pantyhose and bubble wrap and painted the casings traditionally made from intestine to look as real as possible. To leave no doubt as to their authenticity, the cylinders sport designed labels reading La Traviata, La Buona Risata and Salami La Principessa. There is so much to love about food, said Ms. Lovitt, who began her professional career as an artist for Hallmark in Kansas City and is behind the Dancing Pineapples mural in Delray Beach. The packaging, the sensory delight, the design of a meal, a menu, a garden, all appeal to me as a designer and just a plain old eater. Lets face it, you cant eat a painting. Many of the works on view look as though one could eat, drink or play with them. Take Karla Walters Sardinhas Frescas, which depicts more than two dozen ceramic fish swimming upstream to escape the shiny plate holding five of their friends on ice. To say they look frightened is an understatement. The last sardine in line, which is also the closest to the distressed nightstand holding the plate, looks equally frozen in fear. An unmade bed of noodles with tossed pillows representing carrots, radishes and veggies recreates a delicious supersized broth in Conversation Pieces: Noodles for the Soul. The giant fabric bowl created by Marilyn Walter and Gillian Kennedy Wright invites viewers to interact with the artwork and explore their personal connection with food as well as its cultural significance. The artistic duo even provides fabric chop sticks. Food has such an impact on us, fostering community but very connected to our human soul and memory, Ms. Wright said. By having direct contact with the food, whether we are cutting, slicing, the simmering of the broth, everyone is contributing to the communal event or memory. Which bring us to Breading Discontent, an installation featuring two rows of calcium fortified enriched classic white bread near expiration. The iconic Wonder Bread bags lead up to a pedestal holding two molding slices inside a glass cake dome. Directly below this altar of sorts lies a brick path that culminates with a beautifully baked, and presumably fresh, loaf. The colorful wrapping featuring the fantastic nutritious attribute is certain to trigger sandwich-eating and lunchbox memories. The commodification of bread, such as Wonder Bread, with its colorful dots on the packaging, and the boasting of its wonder properties gives me pause, said Nazar Feliciano. The Portuguese-born artist first came up with the concept for the piece in 2001 while studying at the School of Art Institute of Chicago. The 2018 work is the latest in a sequence of versions that evolved and changed titles through the years. This piece for me is about the ending of a ritual of breaking bread good wholesome home baked bread or sharing bread together as a family or a group of friends, Ms. Feliciano said. Shattering passive observation in favor of concrete action or reaction is a recurrent theme throughout Play with your Food! It is everywhere, from the timing of its September opening which perfectly complements a food drive organized by the council in response to hunger action month to the careful selection of the works displayed.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2018 B7 PUZZLE ANSWERS LATEST FILMSNight SchoolIs it worth $10? YesKevin Hart is annoying. This is not to mean he isnt funny he certainly is, at times. Rather, he is annoying in an irksome manner: His pipsqueak screen persona, coupled with his occasionally high-pitched exasperation, can be grating. You want to smack him just as much as you laugh at or with him. But you do laugh, and thats the key. In Night School, he plays another in his long line of immature man-boys. Teddy is a high school dropout attending night school in an effort to earn his G.E.D. First and foremost, bravo to Teddy for going. Secondly, bravo to Teddy for having a beautiful girlfriend Lisa (Megalyn Echikunwoke), who he acknowledges is out of his league, and for wanting to better himself to be the man he feels she deserves. Certainly his intentions are pure even if the lies he tells Lisa to cover up what hes doing are misguided. The premise is standard, and director Malcolm D. Lees (Girls Trip) execution of the humor in the opening half hour is poor. Jokes are too absurd to be funny (Teddy makes a scene while taking the SATs, blows up his workplace, pulls a ruse in a fancy restaurant to avoid the bill, etc.), which is likely the byproduct of having six (!) credited writers on the script. These moments are Hart-centric, and a slog to sit through. When Teddy starts attending night school the film becomes more of an ensemble piece, and everyone especially Hart shines. Hes joined in school by homemaker mom Theresa (Mary Lynn Rajskub), defiant teenager Mila (Annie Winters), dumb-as-nails Big Mac (Rob Riggle), aspiring singer Luis (Al Madrigal), a convict (Jacob Batalon) who attends via Skype and a guy (Romany Malco) who believes robots are taking over the world. Their caring but hardnosed teacher is Carrie (Tiffany Haddish), and the antagonist is Stewart (Taran Killam), a former classmate of Teddys whos now a principal with an unhealthy affection for Morgan Freemans Lean On Me. All the aforementioned cast members have moments to shine, and for the most part succeed. Attempting to steal the midterm exam is humorous, as is Rajskubs Theresa trying to flirt for the first time in 20 years. Why Haddishs Carrie had to beat the crap out of Teddy to help him learn remains unclear, but darn if it didnt add some welcome physical humor. Malco has some timely one-liners, and Riggles character is so stupid its endearing. One issue, though, is the timing of the dialogue after big laughs. Usually filmmakers know when laughs are coming and allow the movie to breathe for a few seconds afterward before someone speaks. This enables audiences to enjoy the moment and not miss anything. Inexplicably, Lee repeatedly has dialogue quickly follow a big laugh, and the words are impossible to hear with the crowd still roaring. Its a good problem to have, but it shouldnt be a problem at all. Night School is ultimately a harmless amusement, an otherwise forgettable date night pic good for a laugh or two and little more. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com Tiffany Haddish recently won an Emmy for hosting Saturday Night Live.

COCKTAILS IN PARADISEHow will legalization of cannabis affect the spirits industry? The legalization of cannabis is a growing reality and is rapidly gaining traction globally. People often ask me how this change will affect the spirits industry and my company, Monkey In Paradise Vodka. How big will the cannabis market get? As cannabis becomes more mainstream and legalized for an increasing number of uses, the spirits industry as a whole will see impacts and shifts. Right now, the cannabis industry is massive and is projected to be even more so within the next eight to 10 years. According to Forbes Magazine, spending on legal cannabis worldwide is expected to hit $57 billion by 2027. The adult-use (recreational) market will comprise 67 percent of the spending, with medical marijuana the remaining 33 percent. The largest group of cannabis buyers is expected be in North America, going from $9.2 billion in 2017 to $47.3 billion a decade later. The largest growth spread, however, is predicted in markets abroad, from $52 million spent in 2017 to a projected $2.5 billion in 2027. Will spirits customers turn away from spirits and turn to cannabis for relaxation and recreation? A delicious drink with a meal, a heartfelt toast, or clicking cheers may be impossible without a favorite spirits beverage. However, research suggests that the legalization of cannabis will take at least some consumers away from spirits. On a positive note, I believe that this new challenge for spirits companies will force some great innovations, such as offering higher quality products at more competitive price points, as well as getting creative with the product offerings and brand positioning. More time and resources may be needed for spirits companies to truly connect with consumers via social media marketing. An overall shift to more authentic content that resonates with their consumers will be crucial. As we researched, crafted, launched and marketed Monkey In Paradise Vodka, I realized cannabis is a formidable competitor, especially in the millennial generation, one of our main target markets. For this reason, we devoted a considerable amount of time, energy, and resources to developing the highest quality product we could, adjusting the price point, building our social media following to create an exciting and loyal community of consumers, and connecting the brand to a lifestyle or movement, the Get Social movement. These steps and others on the way will be more important than ever for us at Monkey In Paradise Vodka. Other spirits companies that seek to maintain market share in this increasingly competitive space will also need strategies to be more than just a drink, and somehow capture the spirit of their spirits. Several large spirits companies are experimenting with cannabis-infused drinks. Some brands are even investing in the cannabis space. The five largest spirits brands currently investing in the cannabis industry are Constellation Brands, Heineken, Molson Coors Brewing, Alcanna, and Great Northern Distributors. These investments prove that spirits companies are aware of, are closely watching and are attempting to make the most of the current trends and capitalize on the future of both industries. Will cannabis be legalized in all states medically and recreationally? The great debates and processes will be fascinating to watch over the next decade. As always, the changing marketplace will force companies in related spaces to deliver their best quality and most effective innovations and offer consumers new and exciting ways to enjoy good friends, family and great times. We can toast to that. Cheers! B10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF OCTOBER 4-10, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY VINOBig wines. Big pleasuresIf youre ever in the enviable position of introducing a newbie to the world of wine, what would you pour? For me, the answer is Zinfandel, because this particular varietal makes big, luscious wines that are easy to understand and easy to enjoy. To get a bit more insight, I interviewed Charlie Tsegeletos, the winemaker at Cline Vineyards. It is famous for its Ancient Vines Zin, so-called because many vines in California were planted decades ago and are still producing quality fruit to this day. As weve noted in past columns, Zinfandel grapes (which came originally from Croatia through Italy) were planted as far back as the Gold Rush era. They were shipped all over the country to home winemakers during Prohibition. There was usually wine on the dinner table when I was growing up, he recalls. And, of course, I did a little unauthorized tasting at family gatherings. But when I had a taste of a 1976 Charles Krug Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon I thought, Id really like to make something like that. Everyone has their own wine epiphany: the bottle that does it for us. Ours was a Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand. But whatever it was for Tsegeletos, he became an apprentice winemaker right out of college almost 40 years ago. He sums up his approach the way most winemakers do: striving for balance. The grapes will give you the fruit and herbal flavors. As winemakers we choose the sugar level and alcohol potential. We decide on the levels of oak and tannin, and none of these components should stick out the flavors and aromas need to be in balance with one another. The other good news is that the majority of Zinfandels are very attractively priced and are made to be enjoyed right away. We dont lay them down in the cellar for years and years, because the characteristic rich fruit flavors tend to fade over time. According to Tsegeletos, We make reserve, single vineyard wines and wines for everyday drinking. You can find a very enjoyable bottle of Cline Wine for under $20. I think if you make a delicious wine and price it right folks are going to find it. And, of course, I had to ask my standard question about wine ratings. If the rating is coming from a critic or publication that you have learned to trust, then they can be a great help in guiding you to a wine youll like, says Tsegeletos. He notes that consumers should do a lot of exploring on their own. Im the best judge of what I like in a wine. Since there has been a lot of interest in so-called vegan wines, Tsegeletos follows through. We farm using no synthetic fertilizers or herbicides or pesticides of any kind. We do not fine our wines or use enzymes so all our wines are vegan friendly. Heres a Cline discovery, and some others to seek out and enjoy. Cline Ancient Vines Zinfandel Contra Costa County 2016 ($15) Cline produced this wine from 100-year-old vines. Dense ruby color, and a bit mediumbodied for a Zin, with bold flavors of strawberry. Oak aging adds more complexity, including layers of coffee and chocolate. WW 91. Dutton Goldfield Zinfandel Russian River Valley Morelli Lane Vineyard 2015 ($50) Like most Zinfandels, this wine is dense on the nose and palate, but not heavy. Extracted flavors of blackberry and raspberry, along with cocoa and caramel from the 15 months it spent in French oak. Big stuff and great to pair with barbecue. WW 90. Scheid Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Monterey 2017 ($22) A sweeter version of this grape, round on the palate with harmonious flavors of peach and tangerine. The acidity balances the somewhat rich fruit flavors and provides a long, satisfying finish. WW 89. Ask the Wine Whisperer Q: Everyone says wine is such an ancient beverage. How old is it, really? Suzanne C., NaplesA: Pieces of pottery jars with traces of wine in them have been discovered in the Zagros Mountains in Iran and dated back over 5,400 years. Its also known that wine was made in the Nile delta as early as 3,000 BC. Thousands of wine jars have been found in the tombs of the Pharaohs. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer. He is creative director of Greenfield Media & Marketing, and Wine director of the international Direct Cellars wine club. His new book, Ask the Wine Whisperer, has just been published.

Phone 561-4075693; www.berryfreshcafe.com The Price: $12.99 The Details: Some days, especially hot ones, you just want a salad as a meal. This fills the bill deliciously. A crisp chicken-breast half, coated with a finely ground pecan crust, sits atop a sizeable salad. Field greens, Craisins, crisp green beans, green apple slices and a generous crumble of goat cheese are tossed, and served with a bacon-Dijon mustard vinaigrette, touched with honey. A dollop of melon salsa tops it all. Its served with a square of sweet, cakey cornbread. We were really hungry, but ended up taking half home the portions here are large. Service is friendly in the casual cafe, but its among the more popular spots in Jupiter on weekends, largely for its choices. Expect a wait; go very early or late toward closing. J an Norris, jnorris@florida w eekly.comTHE DISH: Highlights from local menus Private rooms A trio worth noting3JANSTHREE FOR3 LIMONCELLO2000 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens. 561-622-7200; www.limoncellopbg.com. The owners have had the private banquet room in the works for some time, but its now ready for guests. An entrance completely separate from the restaurant gives this large room an advantage over others where privacy is desired, say, for special guests. Both the space, and the classy Italian menu can be configured for parties through their special group reservations. Space for musicians is here, as well. Jan Norris, firstname.lastname@example.org TAPEO118 S. Clematis St., West Palm Beach. 561-514-0811; www.tapeotapas.com. The full upstairs room can be used for parties here, and the menu is well fitted for pleasing crowds. Paellas, of course, could feed a hungry group of 40, but tapas suitable for passing as cocktail foods are also on the menu. Housemade sangria makes for a festive crowd drink, though a full bar can accommodate everyones choice. You can dance, too: Theres room for a musical combo as well.2 EVO150 N. U.S. Highway 1, Jupiter. 561745-2444; www.evoitalian.com. In the restaurants contemporary redesign, chef/owner Erik Pettersen has created a private room off the main dining room and behind sliding barn doors. The elegant room with impressive chandelier can accommodate 25. Special menus can be designed for the group as well as those diners with dietary restrictions the chef is known for accommodating diners. FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE COURTESY PHOTO Okeechobee Steakhouse has opened the nearby Okeechobee Prime Meat Market. janNORRISjan@jannorris.com Modern American grill opening in Wellington JAN NORRIS / FLORIDA WEEKLY When they return this Thanksgiving, the horsey set out in Wellington will find a modern American grill open in the former The Grille Fashion Cuisine space. Opening soon is the Trophy Room, created by T&R Restaurant Group, a division of a developers brand of the same initials. Joe Bonavita Jr. is executive chef, and has been developing recipes throughout the summer for the new 175-seat restaurant and lounge. Hes most recently from the Tideline Ocean Resort & Spa in Palm Beach. Prime meats and seafoods are a focal point of sorts, with menu changes and specials to reflect seasons and availability of local food. With a nod to time spent at 50 Ocean in Delray Beach, the chefs seafood extends to a chilled bar with items such as farmed oysters sourced from Duxbury Bay off Massachusetts, and a daily ceviche. Prime ribeye tomahawk steaks will be dry-aged; a daily butchers cut is on the list. Other items go global mash-up: duck confit tacos, Kurobuta pork ribs with a hoisin BBQ sauce, kimchee fried rice, cobia al pastor with tequila, pineapple, hearts of palm, and pistachios. Brickoven pizza and pastas are on the menu. The chef is planning to source vegetables locally and is working with Swank Farm in Loxahatchee for now. Chefs signature dessert of marshmallows and graham crackers with salted caramel ice cream is morphing into a seasonal offering, such as pumpkin pinwheel cake with toasted marshmallow ice cream, a brown butter-hazelnut crumble with caramel and toffee bites. The restaurant will switch over to a lounge in later evenings, as the former occupant also did. A bar, patio, lounge and private room are part of the restaurants design. Its expected to open this month. Meal service will be dinner only, daily from 4 p.m. The Trophy Room is at 12300 Southshore Blvd., Wellington. Phone 561-7932110; www.trophyroomrestaurant.com.Steakhouse opens marketNo time to rest on its laurels, so the Okeechobee Steakhouse launched a retail shop next door. The Okeechobee Prime Meat Market gives diners a chance to take home meats cut on the premises to their own grills. It has been in the works for a few years, but acquiring buildings and permits for it took more time than expected. But its beyond prime steaks, veal, lamb, pork and seafood that are sold the shop carries a group of prepared meals, including 13 soups, 18 sides, and more than 30 entrees, including foods not on the steakhouses menu. Meatballs and marinara, veggie lasagna, pork bowtie pasta, honey chicken kebabs, chicken pot pie and pot roast are just some of the items listed. Wines and desserts, including the candied bacon-peanut b utter pie, are available. From the store, they also offer catering and yacht provisioning. Along with the meat market, the restaurant also debuted a new private event space across the street from the market. Okeechobee Prime Meat Market is at 1959 Wabasso Drive, West Palm Beach. Phone 561-570-7200; www.1947gourmetmeatmarket.com.In briefOktoberfests bring out special beers all around South Florida at the breweries. But food is on the menu, too, at The Butcher Shop in downtown West Palm Beach, where veal schnitzel with spaetzle, beer-braised pork shank, sausages, pretzels and streudel are served every Friday to Sunday through Oct. 14. ... The cooks at the American German Club in Lantana are busy working on the foods for the clubs 45th annual Oktoberfest fling the largest in Florida. The two weekends this year are Oct. 12-14, and Oct. 19-21. Info and tickets are at www.americangerman club.org. The Mellow Mushroom has closed its CityPlace spot, which faced Okeechobee Boulevard.

For Floridians, it marks the end of our slowest season and the beginning of what we hope will be cooler seasons that bustle with fun activities, happy holidays and gatherings and visits with those we love the most.

Scott Simmons, EditorEDITORS PICKSNaturally beautifulAutumn is finally here. COURTESY PHOTOS SIMMONSYouve got a frondThis palm fire screen incorporates offers a Florida look that would be at home in either a contemporary or a traditional space. The design of this antique gold-tone aluminum piece is inspired by the beauty of a windswept palm tree and the perfectly imperfect shapes of woven palm leaves and fallen fronds. And each piece in this collection undergoes a series of casting, filing, welding and oxidation techniques. Because of the handwork involved, each piece is like a work of art. Available for $1,750 at Hive, 424 Palm St., West Palm Beach; 561-514-0322 or www.hivepalmbeach.com.Pitcher this!I love Michael Arams constant nods to nature his lily pad tables are among my favorites.

4 At Home OCTOBER 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY The aura of the ocean glows from Excentricities showroomsABOVE: Excentricities owner Carol Adams has a passion for gardening. RIGHT: Carol Adams Goldendoodle, Dixie, is a frequent visitor to the stores. INSPIRED by natureCOURTESY PHOTOS BY AMY WOODSawoods@ oridaweekly.com Pelicans, seahorses, turtles and other marine-inspired art and accessories fill nearly every nook and cranny of the nearly 8,000-square-foot space. Paintings featuring alluring beach scenes and pretty palm trees hang from the walls. The various vignettes set up throughout the store have a clear coastal connection via their blueand-white themes. We do have the blue-and-white customer, general manager Jose Salleras said. Being in Florida, its apropos. Its apropos, and its abundant. The pillows and throws scattered about the chairs and sofas come in all manner of blue and white, with little bits of green here and there. The vibe is casual and cottagey, yet eyecatchingly elegant. Its all about bringing the ocean into the house, Mr. Salleras said. Bright, with lots of light thats what customers want. The stores logo is blue and white, as well, and a mural on the exterior of the Old Dixie Highway building depicts two large windows framed by blue-and-white drapery that puddles beside a bench. This is a happy store, designer Christine Berge said. Its happy because of the colors. We really do have a big following of customers that come back because of the atmosphere. The following began in 1986, when Excentricities opened its flagship store to serve customers with winter homes in South Florida. The business since has expanded to locations in Delray Beach, which opened in 2003, West Palm Beach, which opened in 2012, and Jupiter, which opened in 2014. In addition to home accents and furnishings, the inventory includes lighting, rugs and statement pieces not found anywhere else, along with candles, gifts, jewelry and tableware. It also offers select upholstery from CR Laine and Lee Industries. I think that were a very unique store, Ms. Berge said. Were not a corporate chain. Were not big box. We offer a mix of items mostly made in the USA. Excentricities signature seller is its floral arrangements. Made of fine fabric, they range in price from $15 to $750. Sky Moman puts all of them together. She also bounces between each of the four stores delivering her fabulous florals and also handles the companys online and socialmedia marketing. Each store looks completely different, Ms. Moman said, noting that the Delray Beach store has bolder, more vibrant colors, the West Palm Beach store has a transitional to modern schematic, and the Jupiter store is nautical in nature. But each store is dog-friendly. Theres typically always a dog to greet you at the door. Expect to see owner Carol Adams Goldendoodle, Dixie, who greets everyone. Excentricities also is known for selling works by local artists, notably Carol Korpi McKinley, who paints large-scale acrylics on canvas. Sarah LaPierres palette-knife paintings soon will be on display. Everybody wants something local, Ms. Moman said. The woman who makes all that happen is Ms. Adams, a former runway model for Gucci who also helped curate the Italian brands storefront on Palm Beach. I sort of segued that into a design business, said Ms. Adams, a native of North Palm Beach. My philosophy is, whatever the customer likes, we try to make them as happy as possible. We also suggest things. We ask them what they prefer. After many meetings, we perhaps say, This might be better. She said almost every project starts with space planning. Scale is key, Ms. Adams said. Everything must begin there. Cashmere, linen and velvet and dogs are among her favorite things. She sources merchandise from hundreds of vendors across the country and goes to trade shows every year in Atlanta and New York City. This month, she will attend the High Point Market in North Carolina. I buy what I think will work, said Ms. Adams. And it helps that she has passion. I love what I do, Ms. Adams said. We work with both designers and homeowners, and were very service-oriented. Many of my clients have become friends. That makes me feel wonderful. Excentricities has four stores in Palm Beach County Jupiter, North Palm Beach, West Palm Beach and Delray Beach. www.excentricities.com.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com OCTOBER 2018 At Home 7 The spa has a private collection of healing mineral pools with ancient restorative powers. Locals and sophisticated travelers go to iBar for drinks, shared plates, conversation and, sometimes, ` dancing.Challenging golf courses and a top-ranked spa are big draws for PGA National Resort BY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@ oridaweekly.comI just watched a teary-eyed Tiger Woods accept the trophy for winning the 2018 Tour Championship, his first win since 2013. It moved me to tears, too. After all, who doesnt love a good comeback story? Im not even a golfer, although I occasionally enjoy watching the game on TV. Golfers at least the good ones inspire me. So focused. So driven. So masterful at driving and sinking putts. And the courses themselves are a thing of beauty. Perfectly manicured and landscaped. Lush, green grass, white sandy bunkers and tranquil ponds. For a chance to spot a masterful golfer, or at least have a chance to play a course challenging enough to test the best of them, plan a getaway at PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, home to the Honda Classic since 2007. There are 1,250 golf courses in Florida and PGA National Resort & Spa has some of the best. In fact, the resort boasts five 18-hole cour ses for putters, designed by respected architects like Tom and George Fazio, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer. The world-renowned Champion Course is known for its Bear Trap a series of three demanding holes that are often considered the toughest stretch in golf. The clubhouse is massive, but since the course is open only to hotel guests and members, the greens are not typically overcrowded. Earlier this year, at the Honda Classic, Mr. Woods hit a goose with a drive on the 8th hole on the Champion Course and went on to make a birdie, although he didnt win the tournament. Was the legendary golfers turnaround launched at PGA National when he nicked that golden goose? Perhaps. Its not surprising that guests looking to tackle the fairways consistently give the resort high marks. But you dont have to be a golfer to enjoy this paradise golfers paradise. When my friend and I booked a room at the resort recently, we were looking for a more low-key experience a girlfriends getaway. For us, that meant happy hour at iBar, dinner at Ironwood Steak & Seafood and, in the morning, some pampering time at the resort spa, which boasts 32 treatment rooms and areas and more than 100 ways to indulge. We indulged in manicures. We indulged in pedicures. We indulged in wine. (Not too much, really). And then we had lunch at the Waters of the World Caf and lazed around the spas private collection of healing mineral pools with ancient restorative powers. We felt restored enough to start making plans for an encore visit. The AAA four Diamond resort recently underwent a $4 million comprehensive renovation. Upgrades included state-of-the-art exercise equipment, indoor racquet ball court, three aerobics studios with new sound systems, five-lane saltwater lap pool, spin room with video road mapping, indoor volleyball court, two lighted pickle / paddle ball courts, 18 Har Tru tennis courts (11 lit for night play) and one lighted hard court with a hitting wall. Rated as Best Spa in Palm Beach County by Florida Weekly and recently named in the Top 25 US Spas by Conde Nast Traveler, Palm Beach National Resort has 339 guest rooms and suites.

Special events like the annual ice cream and craft beer festivals keep locals coming to PGA National, too. To entice festival-goers to spend the night, special reduced rates are offered. And, as for that Egyptian goose Tiger nicked earlier this year? I think I spotted her contentedly waddling around outside the golfers lounge, Bar 91. Im thinking she had one too many spiked Arnold Palmers. Or maybe that was me? From the lobby and iBar, guests will see a beautiful zero-entry pool, a popular gathering place for guests.
