He works Monday through Saturday on a regular schedule, doing home watch and taking care of the properties of 50 snowbirds with houses on Sanibel Island. Im my own boss, he says. I dont really call it work its a pastime. When Mr. David moved from Ohio with his wife in 1976, he kept himself busy doing handyman jobs until he turned 80 and didnt want to have to climb ladders anymore. His Jack of All Trades pickup, which he just this year junked, was a common sight around the island. He also has given up the graveyard shift he worked for 10 years at 7-Eleven on the island. Before moving, Mr. David owned a machine shop for 20 years in Ohio and worked for other companies, including White Castle.

One: For the record, Donald Trump is funny and the liberal media never reports it. In his Fort Myers megarally on Halloween, Lynyrd Skynyrds Free Bird and a couple of other oldies blasted through loudspeakers because nobody remembered that presidents once made their entrances to Hail to the Chief, apparently. Impervious, the president took the stage about 50 feet from me, looked at 10,000 cheering America Firsters, acknowledged that roughly 100 percent of them were voting, and added, Then what the hell am I doing here? Thats funny. It was also a great question. Two: I question whether Mr. Trumps Secret Service details are protecting him fully. Some malevolent force may be slipping toxins or hallucinogens into his water. The thing is, several times during his long speech he began to express the classic symptoms of a socialist in America. He said that Social Security would not be cut. No social program is more socialist than that; it should be called Socialist Security. He has also said in recent days that he will protect Medicare another socialist program that should be called Medicommie, not Medicare. Who knows where the president could go with this? Somebody should check his food and water, his air, and the people around him who might be trying to make him a socialist. Three: Contrary to what the media in general have reported, Mr. Trump and a progressive of such standing as Bernie Sanders have a great deal in common. Why doesnt the far-left media just say so? Theyre both aging white males, after all. No, Mr. Sanders is not a baby boomer (hes 77 now) but sometimes he acts like one. Mr. Trump is a baby boomer, of course, a privileged one, and he always acts like it (Im a privileged boomer, too, so I know what Im talking about). Also, theyre both related to Jews. One of them is so related he is a Jew. And finally, both the president and Mr. Sanders repeated exactly the same words to their very different American audiences in recent days, which suggests to me some kind of plot: As Mr. Trump put it, Vote, vote, vote. As Mr. Sanders put it: Vote, vote, vote. As everybody else who gives a gnats ass, a bats ass or a rats ass in America puts it: Vote, vote, vote. That was good advice for 2018 and itll be good advice in 24 short months. Look, people, we have to face a simple unpalatable fact: This is a unified country in many ways. You may not like it, the far-left media may not say it, the alt-right goose-steppers may not acknowledge it, but thats the reality. However, that fact in no way lessens my deep concern for our president, who is sounding a lot like a progressive. On Tuesday, people took him at his word: They voted. And now more than half the voters in Florida and the nation are glad they went to the polls. The rest of us are wishing wed just shut up about voting. If I numbered among the losers Id probably be wandering the streets too, embarrassing my children, drooling, muttering a line Winston Churchill may have given us once, for succor, in times of terrible doubt: The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter. If he didnt say it, someone else did. But I personally heard Mr. Trump say this on Halloween, so I will vouch for it, disappointed as I am: We have forcefully roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com SEE TRUMP, A4 ROGER WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYPresident Trump at Hertz Arena on Halloween.

No portion may be reproduced without the express written consent of Florida Media Group, LLC. OPINIONAmericas loser problem Its not any less awful for being so familiar. The last three high-profile attacks that have convulsed the nation, two in recent weeks, have been carried out by fringe loners who fit the stereotype of the perpetrators of such crimes precisely they didnt fit in, they were off, they kept to themselves. The word that comes up again and again in accounts of their lives is alone, always alone. The life of Cesar Sayoc, who mailed crude pipe bombs to Democrats ranging from George Soros to Hillary Clinton to Robert De Niro, was a pitiable wreck. His father abandoned his family as a child, and after dropping out of college, Sayoc lived with his grandmother. Then he went from place to place, performing as a male stripper. He compiled a record of petty crime, lost his home, declared bankruptcy. He was estranged from his family and resisted its pleas for him to get help. Sayoc lived out of his van, bizarrely festooned with pro-Trump stickers. Not much is known about Robert Bowers, the Pittsburgh synagogue shooter, besides his vile social media postings. A childhood friend called him pretty much a ghost. He may have dropped out of high school. As an adult, he lived alone in an apartment, and no one ever came to see him. One neighbor said she couldnt remember Bowers ever talking to anyone. The Parkland school shooter, Nikolas Cruz, was left with no parents after the death of his adoptive mother. He was expelled from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where he was an outcast. He was reportedly depressed and had other behavioral problems. Police were called constantly to his home. A defense attorney called him a broken child. None of this, of course, is to excuse in the slightest the heinous crimes of these men, or to deny the existence of pure, unadulterated evil. Murderous haters and kooks have been with us forever, as has anti-Semitism. Yet the social pattern is clear. The phrase deaths of despair has entered the nations vocabulary to denote the rise of mortality among a subset of working-class whites from suicide, drugs and alcohol. Its declining longer life expectancy is one of the most stunning trends in American life. The at-risk population tends to be unmarried, disconnected from civil society, marginally employed and largely on their own. One way to look at recent mass killings (or attempted killings) is as the handiwork of a very small, violent fringe of the socially disconnected. Their destructiveness is directed outward, in cowardly acts of mindless malice, rather than inward. They marinate in hate and proudly share their lunatic obsessions online, in a twisted simulacrum of community. They seek their identity in political extremism, Jew-hatred or the hellish idolatry of school shootings. Their crimes are, in their diseased view, feats of grandeur. They give them a chance at perverse consequence and notoriety otherwise not available to them in their marginal lives and social isolation. Its evil and pathetic, infuriating and sad, and, by the looks of it, a persistent feature of 21st-century American life. What Emile Durkheim called anomie has been weaponized, and its horrifying to behold. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYKing Features The violent presidencyRepublicans have always justified their preferential treatment of the superwealthy by trotting out the bogus trickledown theory. They argue that as the rich get richer, they will spend more on jobs, etc., and the financial benefits will trickle down the economic scale. Its a total con, of course. A sham. But now we are witnessing a trickle down thats for real. The man who has taken over the Republicans spews ignorance, hatred and violence every time he opens his mouth or pecks on a smartphone. His malice indeed trickles down actually, more like a gushing as Americans for and against him act on and react to the poison of Donald Trump. It explains the horrifying slaughter at a Pittsburgh synagogue on a recent Saturday the Shabbat, when Jews would be packed in as they came to worship. Robert Bowers, who allegedly mowed them down, was an outspoken and virulent anti-Semite. It would be overstating it to pin that label on Donald Trump. However, he certainly has pandered to those who are emboldened to crawl out of their dark hiding places and proudly display their fanatic hatred of Jews and everyone else whos not a heterosexual white Christian. Trump inspires them with his unceasing dog whistles. By the way, Bowers had made it clear in his social media rants that he was not a Trump supporter. Not so for Cesar Sayoc, the passionate Trumphead arrested for sending out crude pipe bombs to just about any liberal who had ever crossed his idol. Donald Trump has created a presidency with his brand of destructive politicking that literally triggers violence. The brutality now flows freely from both sides. The 2017 shooting and near killing of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise during an attack on GOP congressmen as they practiced for a baseball game against the Democrats was another case in point. The perpetrator was someone from the left who had become inflamed into a homicidal rage. What also was regrettable is that the annual game is one of the few shreds of bipartisanship that remains. Trumps poison cascades downward, and tears us apart. Violence is a predictable result. And now he has the chutzpah to declare that what our country needs is to unify. He blames the media. One recent tweet reads: There is a great anger in our country, caused in part by inaccurate and even fraudulent reporting of the news, the fake news, the true enemy of the people, must stop the open and obvious hostility ... That is an invitation to violence against journalists if there ever was one. Or perhaps depraved responsibility. Meanwhile, his sycophants on the right are still peddling the story that the entire pipe bomb episode was a false flag subterfuge. It was really a Democratic operative, thundered Rush Limbaugh to his remaining dozens of radio listeners, Republicans just dont do this kind of thing. How about Trumplicans, Rush? This quote may be familiar, as Ive used it before: Cheer up, they said. Things could be worse. So I did, and sure enough, they were. Unless we rediscover that political debate means exchanging points of view as opposed to shouting at one another; until our leaders get a twinge of conscience, the growing fire will finally consume our country. The national will to extinguish it will have become a pathetic trickle. Bob Franken is an Emmy Awardwinning reporter who covered Washington for more than 20 years with CNN. bob FRANKENKing Features condemned hatred, bigotry, racism and prejudice in all of its ugly forms. Wow. Something is truly wrong. That is not the Mr. Trump I know and love, the man who has stood so unflinchingly for traditional American values racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-immigrant hatred, all the good stuff. Fortunately, though, our president still has a little kick, whatever the criminals may be putting in his food. For example, while talking about the caravan of about 4,000 potential immigrants now walking across Mexico toward our southern borders, the president was able to pull a small measure of his old chutzpah (if I can use that word) out of the sphincter of striated muscle extending from his coccyx to the central tendinous part of his perineum, and surrounding his anus immediately beneath the skin. Let those people pour right in, folks, he said sarcastically. And then he added the hammer line. Boom! Let them come enjoy you on your front lawn. Wow. The starving, struggling little immigrants are going to come enjoy us on our front lawns. What should we do, we 20 million Floridians? After all, there wont be enough of those little brown bastards to go around. In fact, if they all manage to make it this far well see roughly one caravaner for every 5,000 Sunshine Staters. And you know how much we love enjoyment. Thats just not fair. TRUMPFrom page 2

Janet and her 10-year-old son, Max, were excitedly recapping that mornings winning plays at Maxs soccer tournament. But their euphoria was short-lived: Janets best friend, Marcy, had called to report thered been a mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue. Janet lowered her head, and began sobbing, momentarily missing that Max could hear the conversation on speaker phone. Max started wailing. Whats happening, Mom? Will they come after us next? Janet had no immediate words of comfort to offer. It felt like the level of vitriol and hate around her had reached a staggering level. How does a mother explain to her children that there can be such unspeakable horrors in the world?Grief is hard enough for adults to process. As we struggle with our own feelings after a vicious terror attack, it can be hard to find adequate words to explain the senseless tragedy to our children. When young people are faced with tragedy, the emotional toll can seem insurmountable. Our children count on us to be steady and strong, and a source of solace. While its not in our power to shield our children from lifes heartaches (nor would it be advisable), theres much we can do to assist them in coping and even growing as they face these ordeals. Many of us believe its best not to speak openly about upsetting topics in front of our children. And, yes, its wise to show discretion in what we share. However, our children are great observers and can often read us well, even when we say nothing. They may know that something is upsetting us by the way we react, and by what we say, and what we DONT say. We can certainly talk to our children about how sad we are, and let them know that its challenging for us to work through the upset. However, it would be tremendously reassuring for them to see that we are still emotionally available to support them. Depending upon the age and maturity level of our children, we will have to modify conversations. It will be important to help them look at the big picture and keep things in perspective. Sometimes when children are hurting, it may be difficult for them to comprehend that they will ever feel better. We can help them learn to be resilient so theyre better able to manage adversity and anxiety. Being resilient doesnt mean we dont experience difficulty or distress. Rather, we are teaching our children to cultivate a series of thoughts, behaviors and actions that will help them navigate lifes challenges. Maintaining a positive outlook will hopefully enable our children to see the great things in life and keep going even when times are tough. Even though it may seem that some children are too young to comprehend what is going on, we should assume they sense that something frightening has happened. We should be mindful of overexposing them to news coverage and distressing conversations. Although its important to let them vent and ask questions, its also helpful to guide them away from obsessive worry. If at all possible we should maintain our routines, as this provides a sense of comfort, structure and continuity. Its helpful to ask our children what theyve heard, so we can clear up any misconceptions or misinformation. We should answer in simple terms and provide reassurance that events like this are not commonplace and that the adults in the community are making every effort to keep them safe. With older children, we can go a bit deeper by asking gentle questions to get to the heart of their concerns. Sometimes, no words are necessary. We provide comfort by our presence and accessibility. Adolescence is a time where young people may be experiencing highs and lows because of hormonal levels in their bodies. We need to understand that our teenagers may react in confusing ways. Its best to let them know were aware of the pressures they may be under, but count on them to be appropriate and responsible. It goes without saying that at trying times, we must be patient and concentrate on practicing self-care. Paying attention to our childrens moods and behavior is very important. If they seem moody, clingy or more withdrawn, it may be a sign that they are having an especially hard time coping. We should also look for any notable changes in sleeping, diet, concentration and ability to perform in school. It may be helpful to call upon a trusted family member or friend to assist us. If providing extra emotional support and reassurance does not seem to be sufficient, it may be time to reach out for professional assistance. Reassuring our loved ones how much we care about them, and offering a safe, supportive environment at vulnerable times, goes a long way in softening the blows. Just knowing that were there for them often makes all the difference. We can highlight the courageous efforts our community members make in offering solace and support. We sadly know that its often in the face of tragedy that we see the very best of humanity. Linda Lipshutz, M.S., LCSW is a psychotherapist serving individuals, couples and families.

Today, he also volunteers at Sanibel Community Church on Wednesday evenings as a table parent for the youth group. The aging labor forceGood health, energy to burn, a desire to stay useful: These are a few of the reasons Floridians like Mr. David are staying in or returning to the workforce well into their 70s and beyond. Others do it out of necessity. Whatever the reason, they fit right in with a national trend that is seeing employment figures for postretirement aged individuals steadily rise, particularly in the wake of the Great Recession and growing bankruptcy rates among seniors. Better education and active lifestyles, too, have elevated the baby boomer generation as leaders in an unretirement trend past age 65. And as the boomers get older, so does the number of seniors in advanced years their 70s, 80s and even 90s who still populate the workforce. Other contributing factors include longer lifespans, rising costs, shrinking Social Security benefits and disappearing pensions. Further, some employers are seeking out older employees, whose experience and knowledge are becoming endangered species. Encore Palm Beach County formed in 2015 for the very purpose of engaging talented retirees in bettering workplaces, younger employees and communities in general. Statistics uphold the reality of the aging worker. Nationwide, 255,000 Americans 85 years old or older worked in 2016, according to a July Washington Post blog. Thats 4.4 percent of Americans that age, up from 2.6 percent in 2006, before the recession. Meet the hottest demographic in the labor market: men and women working not only past traditional retirement age but into their 70s, 80s and sometimes beyond, reported the AARPs magazine in 2015. Over the coming decade, theyll be the fastest-growing segment of the workforce, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Among 65to 74-year-olds, labor force participation is predicted to hit 32 percent by 2022, up from 20 percent in 2002. At age 75 and up, the rate will jump from 5 percent in 2002 to 11 percent in 2022. Meanwhile, participation rates among younger age groups will be flat or will even fall. Labor Department figures show that at every year of age above 55, U.S. residents are working or looking for work at the highest rates on record, reported the Washington Post blog.In Florida The Bureau of Labor Statistics throws the senior workforce into one category in its charts: ages 65 and older. In 2017, U.S. retirementage employment, perhaps surprisingly, topped Florida statistics by 1 percent. Nationwide, 19.3 percent of the 65-and-older population was employed; in Florida, 18.3 percent. It may seem surprising given Floridas reputation for snowbirds and retirees, but not so much once you consider that a large percentage of snowbirds get reported in their home-state census. Anecdotally, one would expect that the year-round active lifestyles of Floridians would mean a longer stretch to their working life. However, particularly in Southwest Florida and Southeast Florida, the cost of living dictates a higher-income level of retiree. Volunteering is frequently the way wealthier Florida retirees keep engaged. Although school crossing guards and truck drivers are popular choices among seniors looking for new jobs nationwide, SeniorLiving.org shows that management occupations top the list for older Americans. Many who continue to work into their golden years, like Mr. David, work for themselves. They may operate their own business or even head a corporation. Take, for instance, Kermit Carpenter, owner of Kermits Key Lime Shoppe in Key West. At age 75, hes still standing most days outside his Old Town shop dressed in a green toque and a chefs jacket holding a Key lime pie. For this particular Kermit, being green is easy. I would not know what to do if I retired, emailed Mr. Carpenter from a Mediterranean cruise vacation last month. This gives me purpose and a reason to jumpstart every day. I think I would be so bored. This is my baby, and I love to be with her. (I would retire) if it ever stopped being fun but I dont think that is possible. Mr. Carpenter opened his key lime pie and products specialty shop 26 years ago after leaving a 20-year career in retail as a buyer and manager in a major department store in Washington, D.C. Im having way too much fun working seven days a week to retire ... I spend my days overseeing from the front door with my partner and best friend (dog) Pirate.

The SHRM Foundation, for instance, a nationwide nonprofit affiliated with the Society of Human Resource Management, has taken on The Aging Workforce initiative. It publishes studies focusing on such topics as preparing for an aging workforce, leveraging the talents of mature employees, how to recruit and retain older workers and understanding the value of an agediverse workforce.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2018 NEWS A9 Fort Myers Bonita Springs Charleston Estero Naples Palm Beach Scottsdale Paul and Dean bring decades of experience working with ultra-high net worth families in the area. Senior Vice President email@example.com Senior Vice President firstname.lastname@example.org welcomes Marc Freedman, who started the nationwide Encore movement, she discovered that 10,000 people turn 65 every day in this country and would for many years, that it was the largest generation of retirees in our history, the best educated, the healthiest, and experienced in many careers, but the biggest thing was many of us could expect to live 30 years in retirement, longer than any previous generation and, finally, many did not want a retirement of leisure like their parents and grandparents. They wanted more for their lives in retirement, she writes on the agencys website. Early next year, in cooperation with Your Aging & Disability Center, Palm Beach State College, CareerSourcePBC, and the local human resources association, Encore will host an awards breakfast for local companies that excel in recruiting, retaining, supporting and transitioning mature workers. Your Aging & Disability Center is one of 11 branches of the Area Agency on Aging in Florida, administered by the Department of Elder Affairs. It refers job inquiries from mature workers to Encore PBC. The Southwest Florida branch, Area Agency on Aging for Southwest Florida, serves seven counties including Sarasota, Charlotte, Lee and Collier. Folks call us when they dont know what resources are available, said Kirsten ODonnell, director of communication at AAASWFL. If someone were to call its Elder Helpline with employment needs, staff would first determine whether the caller was looking for volunteer work, incomed employment, vocational training or help with other employment issues. They would refer that individual to the appropriate local agency such as CareerSource Southwest Florida, Goodwill or the federal Senior Community Service Employment Program, contracted currently by AARP Foundation. Ms. Nixon at Encore PBC, age 79, also operates her all-volunteer program as a referral resource. I think theres a perception that everybody in Palm Beach County is financially secure and that is not the case, she said. And Im not just talking about the poor. Im talking about middle-class Floridians who live here year-round and also people who are snowbirds. She hears from a number of over-50 workers who have relocated to Florida, often to take care of elderly parents. Some express desperation. They have to work. They have to recreate careers. I can tell you that in the last few months Ive probably referred 30 people looking for work. Its very different for people over 50 to find jobs. Almost every person feels discriminated against. Whitney Cherner, who heads Career & Employment Services at the Ruth & Norman Rales Jewish Family Services Inc., in Boca Raton, echoes Ms. Nixons anecdotal observations. People in their 70s? Yes, we see a lot of those types of individuals. People who retired and cant live on Social Security and have to go back to work. People bored out of their minds. People who relocated without understanding the cost of living here. People who are underemployed. People who are supporting adult children who are not contributing. They have difficulties finding employment for physical and medical reasons, she said, but often, too, for their lack of technology skills. But on the up side for employers, they are dependable. One of the nice things about our mature workers, theyre going to take a job and keep a job, said Ms. Cherner, whose agency serves people of all ages and faiths. Other age groups are looking to move up or to another place. You can count on them. Thats certainly true of Helen Cernoch, age 79, who has been a part of King Fisher Fleet at Fishermens Village in Punta Gorda since its inception in the late 1970s. Matriarch of the three-generation charter boat operation, she still works part time doing books, distributing brochures, sewing boat seat cushions and whatever else needs doing. My granddaughter does all the computer stuff that an old lady like me is not so up-to-date on, says Ms. Cernoch, with energy and a smile in her voice. I love it. I love being with people. I love King Fisher, its kind of like our baby. How does it get any better than that? I have no plans to retire. Unless they fire me. I could get cranky, you never know.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY At 55, I was grossly overweight from eating poorly and not being active enough, he says. At the time, I was traveling a lot, selling innovative medical supplies, many that helped cardiologists, one of which was one of the first battery-operated defibrillators. As I watched other people prepare for open heart surgery, I thought to myself, George, that could you be you if you dont turn your life around and create better, healthier habits for yourself. That realization led Mr. Heller, then a portly 295 pounds, to begin working out and eating more nutritional food. Im tall, he said. But even at 6 feet, 2 inches, I was grossly overweight. By sticking to a workout plan, he lost 100 pounds in that first year. I started with jogging, but I found that race-walking was easier on the body and a better alternative for me. I trained and competed all over the world: Puerto Rico, Australia, Oregon and more. I set many records at the time. Even though there wasnt a race-walking division in the New York Marathon, Mr. Heller entered the race in the early 1980s. I walked just to see how I could do, he says. I came in ahead of a lot of runners. Mr. Heller kept competing in racewalking until back problems stopped him when he was in his 70s. From the time I got fit, I never stopped exercising, Mr. Heller said. I always found a way to exercise. He took up spinning and, more recently, rowing. And he still drives.Military historyMr. Heller grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y., and enlisted in the Air Force as an aviation cadet for communications training after the attack on Pearl Harbor. He had been a pre-med student at Brooklyn College at the time. He was sent to Florida and stationed at the Boca Raton Hotel for basic training. I did my marching on the hotels million-dollar golf course, Mr. Heller says. After that, he was sent to Yale University for specialized training in communications and procedures and was commissioned as a second lieutenant. I was assigned to the airways in air communications service, which means that we in the Air Force were in charge of all the message centers, radios, radio direction, control towers, and things like that all over the world, he says. During the war, he was stationed in Central and South America. I returned to the U.S. to prepare for service in the Pacific to go to war on Japan, he says. But while I was home on leave, they dropped the two atomic bombs and then there was no need for me to go. So, I spent the rest of the war in the U.S. And he got married during that time. After being discharged from the Air Force in 1946, he began working as an air traffic controller at Washington National and the Newark airport, before traveling to Israel as a volunteer to help train the air force there after the State of Israel was declared in 1948. He was there for six months before returning to New York and launching a very successful career selling innovative medical supplies, including a unique heart monitor. I went all over the country with that company, he says. He and his partner built the company in 1965 and by the time he left the company had amassed more than $4 million in sales. We started with two people and ended up with over 1,200, Mr. Heller says.A fondness for rowingHe discovered his love for rowing last year and has since acquired a rowing machine for his apartment, although he sometimes uses one at La Posadas stateof-the-art wellness center, too. He even competed in a rowing competition run by local police last year. He finished with the highest record in his division and got a gold medal after rowing 1,000 meters in seven minutes and 55.8 seconds, a new 2017 American record. This year, he completed 8,000 meters without stopping. The best thing about competing at this age is that theres less competition, Mr. Heller says. The only one to compete with is yourself. You just do it to get better. Although he has mastered rowing and spinning, walking has become difficult since an unsuccessful back surgery several years ago. My back is bent over, he says. And I shrunk. Im maybe 5 feet, 8 inches, from 6 feet, 2 inches. Its quite a comedown. But he doesnt fall. I have very strong legs, fortunately, he says. I cant walk long distances. Sometimes I use a cane and I do have a walker that they gave me after my back operation. In December, just as 2017 was coming to a close, Mr. Heller had a heart attack while rowing in his home. Because he got to the hospital quickly, and because of his routine workout regimen, the doctors told him he didnt lose any muscle. He was able to leave the hospital after two days. He dialed back on his usual workouts and uses a heart monitor since the heart attack. But he continues to exercise and doesnt take life for granted. Staying active and working out makes me feel energized and full of life, says Mr. Heller. My 97th birthday will be in April and Im shooting to live to at least 100. But even if he only makes it to 99, he says he will be happy. Every day is a blessing. I try to do the best I can every day. I think the most important thing in life is repairing the world, making the world better for the next generation. Thats what Ive tried to teach my children (two sons) and (four) grandchildren.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY PET TALESFriending felinesWant to make friends with a cat? Read on to learn the secret BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONAndrews McMeel SyndicationWhen we visited family in Albuquerque, New Mexico, a couple of years ago, we received two different receptions from their cats. Lucy struck up a friendship with us right away, but Lilu was more cautious. Maybe it was the lingering scent of dog clinging to our clothes. By the next morning, though, she sat next to me on the kitchen island while I prepared my tea. Last month, I visited my mother, who had recently acquired a new cat. Tracy, a pretty but shy lynx-point Siamese, ran as soon as she saw me walk in the door. She continued to do so any time I made a move, but by the next evening, she was content to stay in my presence and even jumped up on a chair and let me pet her. Whats the secret to getting a cats attention and trust? Play hard to get. Thats right. Ignoring a cat is the quickest way to gain his interest and display your expert-level knowledge of feline etiquette. People who dislike cats often wonder why cats seek them out. Its because cats appreciate people who dont approach them and instead let cats make the first move. Wailani Sung, DVM, a veterinary behaviorist at San Francisco SPCA, explains why. She says that while cats are predators of small creatures, they are also prey to larger predators. To protect themselves, they prefer to wait and watch when strangers enter their territory. They like to take a step back and assess the newcomer to determine if the person exhibits any threatening body language toward them, she says. When I visit a home with cats, Im careful to avoid eye contact with them. Feline body language is subtle. While humans consider a direct glance an indication of polite interest, in felinese its an act of aggression. Reaching toward a cat is also impolite. Whenever possible, I take a path through the house that wont take me near the cat. To improve Tracys opinion of me, I volunteered to set down her food bowl when it was mealtime, still careful not to look at her. I refilled her water dish and scooped her litter box. I turned on her favorite plaything, an electronic spinning toy that she enjoyed batting. The next evening, when I was standing by Moms recliner, Tracy jumped onto it, seemingly unconcerned by my proximity. When the cat decides to come over, I usually stick my index finger out and allow the cat to sniff, Dr. Sung says. The cat can get my scent and decide if he is going to be friendly or not. Cats that decide to be friendly may rub your finger with their cheek. If a cat allows you to pet him, stroke the side of the face, beneath the chin or along the side. Those are the areas cats focus on when they interact physically, greeting each other with nose touches and rubbing with the sides of the face and body. Cats that are still unsure about you may pull back or, if theyre especially uncomfortable, hiss before moving away. Give them more time. There are other ways to attract a reluctant cat. Its never a bad idea to offer treats to gain a cats favor, but be polite about it. Instead of expecting the cat to take the treat from your finger, allow the cat to sniff the treat and then place it on the ground, Dr. Sung says. Some cats require multiple visits before they become accustomed to your face, not to mention your scent and the sound of your voice. Be patient, and theres a good chance that sooner rather than later theyll favor you with their attention. But only on their terms, not yours. Pets of the Week>> Celina is a 6-year-old, 53-pound female mixed breed dog that has a charming and delightful personality, mixed with a little bit of a class clown. >> Tristan is a 9-year-old male cat thats shy at rst, but loves to play.

BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY A14 | WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2018WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM South Florida real estate market conditions improving, report saysMarket conditions in South Florida are generally improving through rising prices, increased sales and stabilized inventory, according to the third quarter 2018 South Florida Market Reports. Released by Douglas Elliman Real Estate, the third largest residential real estate company nationwide, the report showed Miami as the market with the most strength in the luxury sector and Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, and Palm Beach all showing improvement as compared to the same period last year. The market in South Florida has been consistently improving and performing well over the past three quarters, making a strong case for the region directly benefiting from the new federal tax law by drawing homeowners from the Northeast, combined with the numerous other factors that have been drawing domestic and international buyers to Florida said Jay Phillip Parker, Douglas Ellimans chief executive officer for Florida. We would expect that the region will continue to enjoy this advantage in the coming years. Palm Beach report highlights: Highest sales market share of condos since the financial crisis The majority of price trend indicators moved higher Most total third quarter marketwide sales in five years Luxury inventory rose year over year for the first time in 2018 Key trend metrics, compared to same period a year ago, in luxury condo and single family: Median sales price declined 35.2 percent, to $5 million Average price per square foot rose 14.3 percent to $1,548 Days on market was 78, down from 252 Listing discount was 15.5 percent, up from 13.4 percent Listing inventory slipped 7.4 percent to 88 Entry threshold began at $4.2 million. Palm Beach Gardens report highlights: Single-family price trend indicators were mixed as sales expanded Condo sales slipped as price trend indicators moved higher Key trend metrics, compared to same period a year ago: Single family: Median sales price slipped 1.5 percent to $472,000 Days on market was 80, up from 77 Listing discount was 6.7 percent, unchanged Listing inventory declined 33.8 percent to 444 Condo: Median sales price rose 5 percent to $243,500 Days on market was 58, up from 55 Listing discount was 4.1 percent, up from 3.8 percent Listing inventory increased 25.5 percent to 246 MONEY & INVESTINGForeign banks buying gold at record pace to hedge shifts in U.S. dollar, tradeThe use of gold to produce jewelry was first recorded around 7,000 years ago and still today most peoples exposure to the precious metal is on a ring finger, wrist or neck. However, some of the largest owners of gold in the world are not individuals at all, but Central Banks, including the Federal Reserve here in the United States. Why do Central Banks buy gold and what are they doing with the precious metal today? Central Banks own gold as part of their reserve assets. Reserve assets are any assets such as bonds, foreign currencies or commodities that can be used by the bank for its regular operations or in case of emergencies. Prior to the Bretton Woods agreement in 1971, gold was the predominant reserve asset for most Central Banks. Today, some countries like the U.S. and Germany still have the vast majority of reserve assets in the form of gold. Other countries like China have a very small amount of reserves in gold. Instead, foreign currencies and debt make up a preponderance of their reserves. Central Banks like gold as a reserve asset for a few reasons. First, it cannot be voided by another country. If China owns a large amount of U.S. Treasury Bonds, for example, the U.S. could decide to cancel that debt and China would be holding worthless paper. Second, gold has always been a liquid source of funds in any global emergency. Gold can be easily traded to any other currency or asset or used as collateral if needed. Third, gold is not tied to any particular nation or currency and thus is a hedge against the movement of any of these other assets. And finally, gold is a hedge against high inflation in a particular country. Gold can preserve value even if prices are spiraling higher within a region or nation. Recently, the World Gold Council announced that Central Banks around the world have increased their purchases of gold to the highest level in a number of years. Almost 150 million tons of gold were purchased in just the last quarter, a 22 percent increase from the prior year. The largest purchaser was the Central Bank of Russia, which purchased more than 92 tons at a market value of approximately $3.6 billion, the largest purchase ever on record. Other large purchasers of gold included Turkey, India, Poland and Hungary. Many analysts believe that these countries have purchased gold as they have sold U.S. bonds and U.S. dollar assets. Some of the countries feared sanctions and wanted assets not under the control of the U.S. Other countries feared U.S. market fluctuations and a volatile U.S. dollar. With all of these Central Banks buying gold, it is interesting that gold prices actually fell during the last quarter. This is because investors in gold actually sold a great deal of the precious metal. Exchange Traded Funds that invest in gold sold around 116 million tons of gold during the third quarter, offsetting much of the Central Bank purchases. Going forward, analysts and investors will be keeping a close eye on further Central Bank gold purchases. Some are speculating that Central Banks are expecting a slide in the U.S. dollar and are buying gold as a hedge against this. Others read an increase in gold purchases as Central Banks bracing for a possible global trade war in the near future. And some alarmists believe that Central Banks are predicting significant debt defaults in the future and are buying gold to protect themselves from a financial crash. But almost all believe that Central Banks will continue to buy gold, placing upward pressure on gold prices going forward. Eric Bretan, the co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda, was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com

Buzz Agency relocates to Palm BeachNearly a decade ago, two acquaintances, each with a communications background and serving on an arts committee, pooled their resources and launched a public relations firm, The Buzz Agency, in Delray Beach. Fast forward 10 years later, and Julie Mullen and Elizabeth Kelley Grace have amassed a list of clients, employ a full-time staff of eight and leased four offices at 101 Bradley Place, relocating to Palm Beach. Not only is Palm Beach one of the most spectacular locales in the world, its proximity to downtown West Palm Beach, the epicenter of growth in the county, was especially appealing to us, Ms. Mullen said. The firm has had a presence in the Bradley Building for two years, after it acquired Tradewinds Media Partners. Once additional office space became available and they could move their operation to Palm Beach, The Buzz Agency decided to go for it, a news release said. The Palm Beach vibe suits us, Ms. Grace said. While we love the hustle and bustle of the Atlantic Avenue, the peaceful, elegant surroundings on the island definitely were appealing. The Buzz Agency provides public relations, social media and community outreach service for a number of clients locally, regionally and nationally. Learn more at thebuzzagency.net.

COMMENTARYLeadership in turbulent times BY MICHAEL REAGENDoris Kearns Goodwins newest book, Leadership in Turbulent Times, is a remarkable keeper. Focusing on four presidents she has closely studied over the years Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson, for whom she personally helped write his memories as both a presidential intern and, then later, as a Harvard professor Goodwin interestingly divides the book into three parts: The presidents roots of Ambition and Recognition of Leadership, the impact of their Adversity and Growth, then cases how each prevailed The Leader and His Times: How They Led. I was especially interested in the aspects of their leadership styles. For example, Lincoln learned to: Acknowledge when failed policies demand a change in direction. Gather firsthand information and ask questions. Find time and space in which to think. Exhaust all possibility of compromise before imposing unilateral executive power. Anticipate contending viewpoints. Assume full responsibility for a pivoted decision. Refuse to let past resentments fester; transcend personal vendettas. Set a standard of mutual respect and dignity; control anger. Shield colleagues from blame. Maintain perspective in the face of both accolades and abuse. Understand the emotional needs of each member of the team. Find ways to cope with pressure, maintain balance, replenish energy. Keep your word. Know when to hold back, when to move forward. Combine transactional and transformational leadership. Be accessible, easy to approach. Put ambition for the collective interest above self-interest. Goodwin studied how Theodore Roosevelt managed crises. She reports he would: Calculate risks of getting involved. Secure a reliable understanding of the facts, causes and conditions of the situation. Remain uncommitted in the early stages. Use history to provide perspective. Be ready to grapple with reversals, abrupt intrusions that can unravel all plans. Reevaluate options: Be ready to adapt as a situation escalates. Be visible. Cultivate public support among those most directly affected by the crisis. Clear the deck to focus with singlemindedness on the crisis. Assemble a crisis management team. Frame the narrative. Keep temper in check. Document proceedings each step of the way. Control the message in the press. Find ways to relieve stress. Be ready with multiple strategies; prepare contingent moves. Dont hit unless you have to, but when you hit, hit hard. Share credit for the successful resolution. Leave a record behind for the future. Franklin Roosevelt, of course, is our only four-time president and is credited with both leading the U.S. out of the Great Depression and to WWII Victory. Goodwin writes he exemplified Turnaround Leadership by using these steps: Draw an immediate sharp line of demarcation between what has gone before and what is about to begin. Restore confidence to the spirit and morale of the people. Strike the right balance of realism and optimism. Infuse a sense of shared purpose and direction. Tell people what they can expect and what is expected of them. Lead by example. Forge a team aligned with action and change. Create a gathering pause, a window of time. Bring all stakeholders aboard. Set a deadline and drive full bore to meet it. Set forth and maintain clear-cut ground rules with the press. Tell the story directly to the people. Address systemic problems. Launch lasting reforms. Be open to experiment. Design flexible agencies to deal with new problems. Stimulate competition and debate. Encourage creativity Open channels of unfiltered information to supplement and challenge official sources. Adapt. Be ready to change course quickly when necessary. Because I lived through the Lyndon Johnson presidency, and know several who knew him and told me about him, I was fascinated about Goodwins take on his Visionary Leadership style he actualized by: Making a dramatic start. Leading with his strengths. Simplifying the agenda. Establishing the most effective order of battle. Honoring his commitments. Driving, driving, driving. Mastering the power of the narrative. Rall ying support around a strategic target. Imposing discipline in the ranks. Identifying the key to success. Putting ego aside. Taking the measure of men. Setting forth a compelling picture of the future. Knowing that the readiness is all. Giving stakeholders a chance to shape a measure from the start. Knowing when to hold back, then when to move forward. Letting celebrations honor the past and approve momentum for the future. This is an unusual book written by a thoroughly competent and scrupulous historian/biographer. Goodwin delves into the personal traumas, uncertainties, quirks, mistakes, regrets and guilts of each of these presidents. She also reports on those who were closest to them throughout their lives, likewise reporting on their strengths, foibles and the impact of their contributions on the development and advancement of each president. The humanity of all comes through. I find our current turbulent times roilingly and depressingly worrisome. I had trouble putting this book down and learned much. I recommend it to you. Reading it helped me gain some context. And hope.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2018 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE A17 BEHIND THE WHEELQX50 brings it all together for Infiniti This is the vehicle that Infiniti has been wanting to give you for a while. The new 2019 QX50 brings together the latest styling and technology and introduces a unique motor to the market. Its all offered in a five-person crossover, which is where the heart of the premium market seems to be headed. The new car ditches the previous generations sports wagon look for a new design thats a little longer and taller to make sure this is undeniably a crossover. It follows Infinitis latest style theme that brings a cat-like element to the design. It almost looks like a Jaguar both the animal and carmaker with its slender headlights for eyes and very rounded wheel arches for well-defined shoulders. Inside is where the added size has the real payoff. Those who utilize the back seats for adults will be happy with a few extra inches given for leg room, hip room and head room. The premium package levels have an optional tasteful two-tone tan leather that looks like the designers were out to impress customers. They even painted the maple wood trim to match with the aluminum accents for a unique look worthy of a luxury vehicle. The more impressive aspect of the interior is how it functions. Infinitis InTouch system with dual touchscreens is one of the best practical luxury features around. It allows for each owner to choose the function that has the highest priority (usually radio or satellite navigation) and devote its own display. The second touchscreen can run all the other functions of the car without ever disturbing the drivers setup. It even gives the most essential features individual b uttons around the display, so there is no need to go hunting through menus to find radio presets or adjust the climate control. Anyone who has had a family road trip with plenty of fidgety fingers will appreciate the level of independence InTouch can provide. The new 2.0-liter motor is a nice win for Infiniti. The VC-Turbos name isnt exactly sexy, but the 268 horsepower it produces is worth noticing. Its one of the larger outputs in the segment, and this is accomplished through varying the compression ratios in the motor. Its the kind of technology that will impress engineers, and no other car company has yet put it into production. More important than boasting about gadgetry is the way it acts on the road. The turbo four-cylinder feels much more like a confident V6. Considering many other crossovers in this segment are stepping away from six-cylinder power, it gives the QX50 a distinct and premium feeling. The steering is a nice balance between feeling light and direct. It goes well with a suspension that doesnt feel as tight as a sports car but doesnt wobble like Jell-O. So, while there are other luxury brands out there that take pride in being a performanceoriented family machine, this one just seems to be dampened enough to be friendlier for everyday use. Our loaded top-level Essential trim test car came in at $55,285 and adding all-wheel drive would have been $1,800 more. That occupies the same space as the adult-sized crossovers and SUVs from Mercedes, Land Rover and other premium brands. The Infiniti is better equipped when it infringes into this territory. Still, those others can lure customers on their prestige alone. A little below this threshold is where the QX50 is likely to really be a winner. There are two trim packages beneath our test vehicle, and the starting price is $37,545. The base model misses out on features like some advanced safety technology, nifty wood trim and an independent climate control zone for the rear seats, but it still feels like a nice value. Thats because all QX50s come standard with the same VCTurbo motor, dual touchscreens and many of the other essential pieces that make this crossover distinctive in its crowd. The QX50 genuinely stands out from the horde when cross-shopped with adultsized vehicles anywhere from Lexus to Audi. It wont win over everyones heart, but Infiniti took its time getting this new crossover to market, and its shown in the details. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com earlSTEWARTearls@estoyota.com561-358-1474 EARL ON CARSCar-leasing booby traps1. You owe the bank or leasing company for damage beyond normal wear and tear and excess mileage. The danger here is because many people return their car to the dealership after the lease expires without getting signed, written verification of what damage exists on the car and what mileage is on the odometer. Return lease cars commonly sit on the car dealers lot before the bank gets around to picking the car up to send it through the auction. Anybody might be driving that lease car in the interim. It could be a dealership employee. Remember, the car belongs to the bank or leasing company, not the dealer. Your only protection is to be sure that a representative of the dealership fills out, with you, a complete return lease inspection form which notes all damage, the estimated cost of repair and the mileage. Take pictures of your lease return car to have on hand in case youre blamed for any damage after you turn it in. 2. A lease ad with a large down payment and short term. Most lease ads you see on TV or in the newspaper have a large down payment hidden in the fine print. A down payment of $4,000 is typical. Ironically one of the biggest reasons people lease cars is to avoid laying out more cash. Dealers do this because a cash down payment on a lease is leveraged compared to a down payment on a purchase. Watch out for shorter lease terms such as 24 months compared to 36 or 48, which are normal. 3. Low mileage allowance. Be sure you know exactly how many miles are allowed in your lease contract. By restricting the number of miles you are allowed, the dealer can quote a lower monthly payment. Ive seen lease ads with as low as a 7,500 annual mileage allowance and a 25-cent-per-mile penalty. Most people drive a lot more miles. 4. The Lease Disposal Fee. The bank is charging you an extra fee for leasing you the car and then hitting you again for taking the car back. They certainly incur a cost for doing the lease and for taking the lease back, but this is called business overhead expense and should be included in their price which is your lease payment. 5. Higher Insurance Costs. Typically, you are required by the bank or leasing company to carry more insurance on their lease car than you might normally buy if you purchased your car. The cost of the insurance is simply higher on lease cars. 6. Higher Credit Requirements. Another reason dealers advertise lease payments is that most of those who respond to the ad cannot qualify to lease a car and the dealer then tries to sell them the same car. Of course, the payments are much higher, but the dealer accomplished his purpose he got you in the door. If you have a Beacon score below 720, which most people do, you can forget about leasing that car for advertised payment. 7. You might not get the Electric Vehicle Tax Credit. The IRS offers a tax incentive to buy an electric or hybrid car (this limited to a certain number of vehicles). If you lease a hybrid instead of buying, the tax incentive does not go to you; it goes to the leasing company because they are the legal owner of the car. The leasing company may pass this along to you in the form of a lower leaser payment, but maybe not. Make sure to ask your dealer if the savings are being passed along if youre leasing an electrified vehicle. 8. No Tax Advantage to Leasing. This is not really a booby trap, but a lot of people lease cars thinking they can write off the lease payment faster than they can depreciate a car if they buy it. This is not so. Check with your accountant. The only real advantage to leasing over buying is protecting yourself against, or even taking advantage of, unexpected depreciation of the vehicle. When a bank or leasing company establishes a lease payment for a particular model car, the single biggest variable is what that car is going to be worth at the end of the lease. They cant know and they have to guess. If they guess high and the car is worth a lot less at the end of the lease, you have no obligation and the bank suffers a big loss when they sell it at the auction. If you had bought the car, you would be the one to worry about the expectedly low trade-in value when you bought your next car. If the bank guesses that the value of your lease car is lower than what the market value really is, you have an option to purchase that car at this low price. Even if you dont want to keep the car, you can buy the car at this below market option price, sell it to the dealer for the true higher value, and pocket the difference.

Rachel Bay Jones had the opportunity to watch her mother working long before Take our Daughters to Work Day debuted. But she wasnt the only one watching. Ms. Jones, who won a Tony Award earlier this year for her Broadway performance in Dear Evan Hansen, grew up in South Florida. Both of her parents were actors. The first time I saw my mother perform was on stage at the Jupiter Theatre, she says. It was a 1982 production of Fiddler on the Roof at what was then the Burt Reynolds Dinner Theatre, now the Maltz Jupiter Theatre. Seeing her mother become someone named Golda was all it took. Ms. Jones knew she wanted to be on the stage, too. That was where it happened, she says. BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@ oridaweekly.comOnce in a while, television shines. Millions of viewers agreed: Downton Abbey was exceptional television and a bona fide hit for PBS. Abbey was the most watched series in PBS 49-year history. Every Sunday, fans happily immersed themselves in a world of aristocrats and commoners and the strange dichotomy of the servant and the served, and, strangely enough, fans found they could love, hate and empathize with both. The show was so cross-culturally popular, attracting more than 26 million viewers at its peak, the outsidethe-box brains at NBCUniversal International Studios thought an exhibition of the shows memorabilia would work and they were right. Fans who had never recovered when the PBS series came to an end in 2015 showed up in droves when the exhibition opened in New York City in 2017. Thanks to a bunch of professional hoarders, there was plenty to see. The curators have been able to recreate many of the rooms in stunning detail using the original artifacts from the series, from the tableware to tiaras. Gareth Neame, executive producer of the exhibition, wanted visitors to feel as though they could wander the familiar rooms, from Mr. Carsons pantry to Lady Marys bedroom, past the wall of bells that summoned staff, to the formal dining room set with crisp white linens and silver candelabras, porcelain dishes and crystal stemware. The exhibit also relies on still photos and promises never-before-seen footage, but the fan favorite is the display of more than 50 costumes worn by your favorite characters and curated by Anna Robbins, who earned an Emmy nod for her work. The exhibition opens Saturday at CityPlace in downtown West Palm Beach. Admission is timed-entry, meaning your ticket is for a specific time slot.

In the height of her glory, she was known for being stylish her dresses and shoes bandbox fresh as she headed out from her Pahokee home to tackle the day as office manager at South Bay Growers, about 15 miles away. Yes, she was a stickler for details, but over the years, even for her, the facts grew fuzzy. Take her memories of old Granddaddy Griffin. In 1927, he drove Aunt Goldie the 40 or so miles from the family farm in Ochlocknee, Ga., to Valdosta, where she was in college. He drove home and fell ill. Turned out it was typhoid. Goldie remembered that hed stopped along the road to drink from an abandoned well, which later tested positive for typhoid. All the relatives were summoned. My great-grandparents, grandmother Dorothy and Aunt Cleo hurriedly made the trek from Fort Pierce to South Georgia, and they made it just in time to be there as Henry Griffin breathed his last as the old mantel clock marked the sad hour: Bong! Bong! Bong! Bong! Thats how my grandmother remembered it. My grandmother always maintained that he died at noon, and would recount the tale, saying each Bong! with a resonance that trailed off into silence, just like poor Henry. My grandmother was bereft, and Henrys death changed the familys path forever, as Goldie returned home to help run the farm. So did my great-grandparents, who sold off their Fort Pierce store, and stayed to help keep things going until Goldie married two years later. Ninety-one years later, Aunt Goldies daughter, Janette, thought I should have the family Bible. It arrived in the mail a few weeks ago. Imagine my surprise as I turned the page to the listing of family deaths and saw the notation: H.W. Griffin died Monday, 10 minutes till 12:00 oclock, October 3, 1927. Buried Tuesday afternoon. The facts as the family chronicler remembered them differed from the way in which my grandmother had remembered them. My grandmother even remembered the scent of decay as her grandfather was laid out in the front room which was unlikely, especially given that he was buried the next day. Thats the way it is with family and heirlooms those stories have a way of evolving as the decades pass. My grandmothers telling of the tale made a better story, but facts are facts. In the world of antiques, we see this all the time. My friends, appraisers Tim Luke and Greg Strahm, always cite the rare, antique Duncan Phyfe table that is ubiquitous in many American households. You know the table its a mahogany dropleaf or side table with reed legs or a pedestal base. Your grandmother or your aunt or your neighbor had one I can think of three or four neighbors who had those pieces when I was growing up in Fort Myers. Back on the farm in Georgia, my grandmother Dorothy had the dropleaf dining table and six chairs, purchased new for about $15 apiece in North Carolina around 1960. But somewhere along the way, the memories of that relative buying the piece at a neighborhood furniture or department store have faded away. Its always been there, so it must be a 19th-century original, right? Never mind that the originals are in museums. Not necessarily. But heres what we can take away: It is those stories and the associations with those people from our pasts that give these seemingly mundane objects value. Want your grandkids to want your stuff? Use it. Let them associate it with you, and tell the tales behind the objects regardless of how tall they may seem. Its especially timely with Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas just around the corner. After all, its the memories we treasure, and who can put a price on those? scott SIMMONS email@example.com SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYA family Bible entry differs from my paternal grandmothers memory of her grandfathers death.

B8 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLYtour called So You Think You Can Dance Live! 2018, including a Nov. 14 appearance at the Kravis Center. Its all very exciting, he said. Well be performing all of the dances we did on the show, along with extended solos. On top of that, well be learning each others duets. That will make the whole show look a lot more fresh. Mr. Hickmans road to dance fame began at the Bak Middle School of the Arts in West Palm which, as its website says, offers sixth, seventh and eighth grade students creative and artistic opportunities in the areas of communication arts, dance, music, theatre and visual arts. He said he had a rough childhood. He never knew his father and his mother struggled with drugs, eventually landing in jail. An aunt who was the victim of an abusive relationship raised Mr. Hickman and he was also abused during his childhood. When his aunt died, his godmother took him in and his life took a turn for the better. I needed something to do, he said. My godmother and I watched a childrens hip hop dance performance and I asked her if I could do that. Thats how it all started, just as something I wanted to do. But it grew into something I needed to do, because it helped me so much in dealing with what I had gone through as a child. Mr. Hickman went on to the Florida School for Dance Education in Palm Beach Gardens, then the Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts in West Palm, which he said prepared him for the rigors of auditioning for and performing on TVs most demanding talent show. Dreyfoos is an amazing school, he said. Its very diverse, which I loved, and that really helped me on So You Think You Can Dance, because there are so many different people that you have to work with. I was used to that from Dreyfoos, where I was also exposed to a lot of different training, styles and genres. So on the show I was very prepared, being able to jump into any style with any type of choreographer and execute it to the best of my ability. Mr. Hickman said his experience on So You Think You Can Dance which pits dancers in a friendly competition to perform in every form of dance imaginable, from hip hop, ballroom, jazz and Bollywood to Broadway, contemporary, tap and ballet was as demanding as it was exhilarating. We had three or four days to learn all of our routines, which we performed live on the show, he said. These were 14-hour days of constant dancing with an hour for lunch and occasional 10-minute breaks. But it was such an amazing experience. Stressful, for sure, because you know youll perform live for millions of viewers and you dont want to make mistakes. Plus, your name is on the line, along with the choreographer and your dance partner. And, of course, you want to win. So theres a lot of pressure there, but it helped me figure out what I can do as a dancer and how much I can give with some effort, when I really put my mind to it. The experience really taught me a lot about myself. In addition to performing, Mr. Hickman said teaching dance to children is a very rewarding activity for him. Thats why hes an instructor at Char-Mar School of Dance in West Palm Beach. I teach pretty much everything there, he said. Contemporary, ballet, acrobatic dance. Its so rewarding to watch these kids develop. I tell them theyre all far more capable than they think they are. Its easy to doubt yourself, especially when youre around people who you believe are better than you. But the key thing is to keep pushing and fighting and remembering what you want your goals to be. Youll achieve them as long as you give yourself a clear pathway to them. Signs say Mr. Hickmans dance card will be filled for years to come, if SYTYCD judge Vanessa Hudgens is to be believed. No matter what happens on this show, I feel like you have a long career ahead of you, Ms. Hudgens told him the night he was eliminated. After the SYTYCD tour, Mr. Hickman said he plans to move to Los Angeles to continue his career hopefully with a nationally known dance troupe, such as Travis Walls Shaping Sound Dance Company, Complexions Contemporary Ballet or the American Ballet Theater in New York City. I havent been approached by any of them yet, he said. But Im hopeful that with the exposure Ive had on So You Think You Can Dance, plus this upcoming tour, that Ill catch on with one of them. In the meantime, after this tour I hope to do some commercial work. Ive so much enjoyed working on So You Think You Can Dance and I really believe that being on the show will open some doors in the industry for me.

ADAM ROSE/ FOX BROADCASTING CO. /COURTESY FOXWest Palm Beachs Darius Hickman dances his way to stardom. Ms. Jones was still in her teens when she began appearing in shows at the Royal Palm Dinner Theatre, Florida Repertory Theatre, Caldwell Theatre, Florida Stage and a handful of other area theaters that are only memories now. I grew up in the theater community there, she says. And I was also able to witness and be a part of the struggle for survival that most arts organizations face all over this country. On Sat., Nov. 17, shell be back where it all began for a concert benefiting the Maltz. Something Beautiful, starring Rachel Bay Jones, is a showcase for the Tony and Emmy Award winner, who will be backed by a 10-piece orchestra under the musical direction of Randy Redd. Im really happy to be going there, Ms. Jones says. Its going to be a special show. When it comes to music, her tastes are eclectic, ranging from rock and folk to the music her teenage daughter listens to. I love excellent music of every genre, she says. I also have been known to love silly or tasteless things if they make me wanna dance or sing my face off, so Im easy. For the upcoming concert at the Maltz, she says, I chose songs that tell good stories, the ones that feel like a part of my heart which is what I want to share. Ms. Jones is drawn to stories that contain a universal truth, the kind that remind us of how much we have in common at the end of the day. Whether the words are those of a song or come from a script, her goal is to connect and communicate with an audience an audience that may, in turn, communicate with her through laughter, through tears or through applause. That sense of connection, of a shared experience is something she says we are losing in the digital age. And its why she says, We all need the theater now more than ever. Ms. Jones is now based in New York and her parents live in Hawaii, but she still has a soft spot for our neck of the woods. Memories of her childhood and her fondness for South Floridas vast skies might have something to do with it, but in the end, it always comes back to the stage. I love the theatrical community in South Florida, she says. [It is] full of talented, supportive, collaborative friends and colleagues. The time she spent on the local theater scene helped her develop her craft and her confidence, but it is the experience she has gained as a woman as a mother, a daughter, a friend, a lover and even a dog owner that has enabled her to breathe life into the roles that are now coming her way. As a woman, especially in musical theater, roles are getting more interesting, less superficial. Were not content with allowing womens voices to be mere stereotypes, she says. I dont want to just see a pretty face or an old crone. I really want to know who these people are; I want to know how they relate to me. I want to recognize myself in them. Ms. Jones also is connecting with TV and movie audiences these days. Since leaving the Broadway cast of Dear Evan Hansen, she has accepted a recurring role on the new CBS family drama God Friended Me. Im so impressed by the networks and the artists who are putting together these shows that are really just about kindness and helping each other and beauty. Im really grateful for that right now and Im grateful to be part of it, she says. Next month, she also can be seen in Ben Is Back, a film starring Julia Roberts as the mother of a drug addicted son. It tells a very specific story about one family and in so doing allows us a way to understand this crisis thats happening in our communities in a very personal way, she says. Its so beautifully written and directed and the cast is extraordinary. As for the stage, Ms. Jones has no immediate plans to return to Broadway. But its only a matter of time, she says. I cant stay away too long. BROADWAYFrom page 1 Something Beautiful, starring Rachel Bay Jones >> When: 8 p.m. Nov. 17 >> Where: Maltz Jupiter Theatre, 1001 E.

Spending quiet time alone or with people you care for can be both physically and spiritually restorative.CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Make suggestions, not demands. Youll be more successful in getting people to follow your lead if you exercise quiet patience instead of strong persuasion to get your ideas across.

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2018 www.FloridaWeekly.com PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY LATEST FILMSBohemian Rhapsody Is it worth $10? YesTheres an odd duality in Bohemian Rhapsody that is a testament to the enduring power of the rock band Queens music. Any time we see Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek), Brian May (Gwilym Lee), John Deacon (Joseph Mazzello) and Roger Taylor (Ben Hardy) creating their now iconic tunes, and/or in concert, the film is electrifying. Much like the music itself, these scenes are dynamic, intense and captivating. Even better, moments in which Queen develops the songs Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites the Dust, We Will Rock You and more are inherently fascinating who wouldnt want to be in the room when some of the most iconic ballads in rock history were created? So yes, the reason many will go to Bohemian Rhapsody the music is satisfyingly well done. This is a 134-minute movie, however, and the rest of the time it focuses on Mercurys personal life with decidedly mixed results. We learn he is actually Indian/Parsi, and from Zanzibar, even though he grew up in London. His conservative father disapproves of his lack of direction, his mother is more understanding, and he falls in love with and marries Mary (Lucy Boynton) just as his career is starting in the early 0s. Wait, wasnt Mercury gay? youre thinking. The answer, according to Anthony McCartens (Darkest Hour) script, is not publicly. In the film he tells Mary in the mid-late 0s that hes bisexual, and after that he has relationships with men only. There were rumors, but never any public confirmations of his sexuality. Through hindsight we look at his extravagant outfits and outspoken charisma and project a stereotype of gay onto Mercury; its important to remember that being publicly gay was less socially acceptable during Mercurys time. As Mercury, Malek shines on stage and struggles elsewhere. To his credit, he steps into the role of an icon with bravado, and has mastered Mercurys mannerisms. Malek did sing himself, but the voice we hear on screen is a combination of Malek, Mercury and singer Marc Martel, who sounds uncannily like Mercury. In other moments, however, Malek struggles with Mercurys voice, no doubt in part because a prosthetic mouthpiece made it difficult to speak at all. Its these smaller scenes that feel rote, a bit too standard to keep the energy up between musical numbers. There was well-documented tension on the set between Malek and director Bryan Singer that led to Singer being fired with 16 days of shooting remaining (but still retaining the director credit). Perhaps this dissension is why the quiet moments are so mundane. Or perhaps theyre a stodgy lull because our preconception of Mercury is him being outlandish and flamboyant, so it just seems weird to see him at a family dinner. With Roger Taylor and Brian May serving as producers, this was never going to be a warts-and-all chronicling of the bands story, and so be it. What we get in Bohemian Rhapsody is the version they want the world to know, and its a reasonably entertaining version at that. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com Did you know? >> Comedian Mike Myers, who famously sang Bohemian Rhapsody in Waynes World (1992), gets a wink-wink moment as producer Ray Foster, who tells Queen that people would never bang their heads to Bohemian Rhapsody. alexKOWTUNalex@monkeyinparadise.com, Instagram: @successful COCKTAILS & PARADISE Should last call be earlier, later or never?Even before I was old enough to drink and was living in Buffalo, New York, I was keenly aware of the debate over extended drinking hours, and whether they hurt more than they helped the community. Similar to Buffalo, Downtown West Palm Beach requires alcohol sales to cease at 4 a.m. The majority of municipalities in New York and Florida stop liquor sales at either 2 a.m. or 3 a.m. Advocates of an earlier last call argue that 1 a.m.-2 a.m. is late enough to accommodate patrons, and that more crime and mischief than good happen after 2 a.m. anyway. However, supporters of later last call hours point out that the nighttime economy, tourists, college students, and service industry professionals like bartenders, wait staff, musicians, chefs all benefit from the extended drinking times. Unfortunately for the debate, statistics prove that both sides of the argument are correct! It turns out that in many U.S. and British cities, the overall numbers of binge-drinking incidents and alcohol-related crimes remain the same after extended drinking hours are legalized but their timing changes. In some of those places, the number of reported incidents between the hours of 3 a.m.-6 a.m. skyrocketed, placing a huge burden on the local police and firstresponder departments during those particular shifts. Recently, states like Tennessee and California have joined others like Nevada and Louisiana in taking that gamble and will, hopefully, plan and budget accordingly. Tennessees governor enacted legislation allowing restaurants that are open 24/7 to serve alcohol all hours, except 3 a.m.-4 a.m. Last September, California passed legislation permitting nine major cities to extend the drinking curfew from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m. Perhaps its not about changing the law, but shifting the social culture? The most pleasing bar and nightlife scene that I have experienced so far is in San Diego, because the evening activities start earlier often with beachside cocktails end earlier, and allow everyone to get home and get some sleep. If more communities viewed the Happy Hour time slot as the start of the evening activities, instead of the pause between the work day and getting ready for the evening plans, we would have more San Diego-style social scenes. This dynamic could be the key for neighborhoods to achieve an active and prosperous nightlife, as well as a relatively safe and happy population. With so many states and individual cities or towns involved in deciding their own last call hours, the debates will, undoubtedly, continue for many more decades. In the meantime, enjoy your local scene, and cheers to your favorite times to get social. Recycled art makes up ArtiGras commemorative posterArt from recycled paper.

PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF NOVEMBER 8-14, 2018 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15The Dish: Cheeseburger The Place: Brass Ring Pub, 200 U.S. 1, North Palm Beach; 561-848-4748 The Price: $8.90 The Details: OK, some of us were really hungry the day we visited the Brass Ring. But even those of us with prodigious appetites could not finish the cheeseburger. Its our loss. For years, the pub was ranked No. 1 by any number of local publications for creating the areas best burgers. We see no reason to challenge that the perfectly seasoned beef patty is grilled to order (make ours medium, please) and served atop a perfectly toasted bun with plenty of toppings. We added a side of crinkle-cut fries to seal the deal just dont tell anyones cardiologist about that!

Specialties like duck confit empanadas, ceviches and yuca (the cassava kind) croquettes add to the usual menu of burritos, tacos, and quesadillas. They do a tableside guac, and their happy hour is notable for fresh drink mixes made in house. Jan Norris, firstname.lastname@example.org THE WOODS129 Soundings Ave., Jupiter. 561-320-9627; www.thewoods.tigerwoods.com. Thats the famous golfers name that adorns his first restaurant.

Select bourbons, cognacs, and even cigars are on the menu here. A nice mix for everyone, with nice outdoor seating.2 TOMMY BAHAMA RESTAURANT AND BAR126 Soundings Ave., Jupiter. 561-406-6631; www.tommybahama.com/restaurants/jupiter/.

FLORIDA WEEKLY CUISINE janNORRISjan@jannorris.com Meals on Wheels aims to Pie It Forward for Thanksgiving SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLY For the fourth year, Meals on Wheels of the Palm Beaches is Paying it Forward with its Thanksgiving campaign, Pie It Forward. There are two things you must have at Thanksgiving. Pie is one, said Kelly Ring, spokeswoman for Meals on Wheels, the organization that delivers hot meals to seniors and others who are homebound. More than 40 bakers the Pie Masters from notable restaurants, hotels, country clubs and professional kitchens will be baking four types of pie classic pumpkin, pecan, classic apple, and new this year, gluten-free apple. As always, theres a provision for those who want a zero-calorie pie: a virtual pie. A $25 donation lets you give to your choice of teams, and will provide five meals to Meals on Wheels seniors. Several top chefs in the area, such as Chef Zach Bell of Addison Reserve Country Club in Boca Raton and Marcello Fiorentino of La Sirena in West Palm have participated since the start of the program. Howleys Table 26, Sandy James Catering, Duffys Sports Grill and a dozen or more country clubs are churning out pies by the dozens for the charity. The culinary students at Lake Worth High School are getting in on the act, and recently toured the Jack Scalisi Produce facility, where they got a lesson in produce distribution. The longtime family company in West Palm Beach donated apples and other foods to make the pies the students will be baking. We expect to sell more than 3,000 pies this year, said Ms. Ring. That number will make it possible for Meals on Wheels to deliver between 15,000 to 16,000 hot meals midday to its clients. For most of our clients, our volunteers are the only people the seniors see on a daily basis. Its more than just a meal, its human interaction, its a wellness check, its a human connection they may not otherwise have, said Meals on Wheels director Maura Nelson. The nonprofit organization receives no government money, but relies on grants and the generosity of the community through donation and sponsorship. Most of their workers are volunteers who put together the meals and deliver them five days a week around noontime. Pie It Forward is one of their largest fundraising efforts yearly. Bank of America and United Technologies are this years sponsors for the campaign. The pies are sold for $25 each through teams of sellers in a friendly competition, and distributed in refrigerated trucks Tuesday, Nov. 20, in Jupiter and West Palm Beach to the buyers, thanks to the Bush Brothers Provision Company and Jack Scalisi Produce. Selling teams range from large corporate sellers such as Bank of America and Jones Foster, to civic and community groups such as St. Marks Episcopal Church to Right at Home Palm Beach and individuals whove formed with groups of friends like the Newsies, or Peace of Pie teams. Corporate buyers are key: With a minimum of 25 pies, each company who buys to distribute to their clients or employees feeds 125 people. Individuals who buy real pies can pick them up Thanksgiving morning at the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach, or Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium in Jupiter. Pie orders are taken through Nov. 15. For information about the Pie It Forward Campaign or Meals on Wheels, and to order pies, go to their website at www. mowpie.org.In briefAntonios Bella Napoli Italian Market has just opened at 12214 U.S. Highway 1 in Palm Beach Gardens.
