Are you rethinking the role of technology in your life?

Industry-recognized Financial Advisors with Tiano, Armour & Smyth Wealth Managers at J.P. Morgan Securities share five tips on how your devices might enrich your life and disrupt it less. The sky is blue as can be, the wind is blowing through the trees, sailboats race across the bay. And you suddenly realize…you’ve been on the phone for the past hour and haven’t really been enjoying the beautiful summer day. And while our smartphones and devices bring considerable benefits to many areas of our lives, we all experience moments when we feel distracted by tech. Have you been wondering if it’s time to reassess your relationship with technology? The intensity of modern living reinforces the idea that technology can make our lives easier. Our devices help us in many ways by acting like a second brain, relieving us of having to process too much information. Called “cognitive off-loading,” the basic premise is that we try to find ways to reduce how much thinking we have to do. Relieved that technology is working on our behalf, we presumably have more time and energy to do other things—to work, to play, to spend more time with our families and friends. But is the premise true if we can’t find ways to put our devices down?

What’s the next step in balancing our technology needs? To get an idea how much value people place in technology, J.P. Morgan commissioned global research with 1,500 high-networth (HNW) and ultra-high-net-worth (UHNW) participants to explore how they feel about technology.1 The data clearly show that people find extraordinary value in technology on a deeply personal level. But participants express genuine conflict regarding the amount of time they spend on their devices. Embrace the benefits and leave the rest behind. Drawing on survey results, we’ve come up with five tips to help embrace the benefits of technology in our lives, rather than allowing it to become a driver of our behavior: 1. Figure out how technology fits in your life—Do you need technology to accomplish a task, or is there another way to do it? 2. Use technology with intention—Use it well, from ordering tickets to a concert to texting your child about his or her whereabouts. 3. Know the risks of using your device—Talk with colleagues, friends and family about the downsides of pervasive technology in your lives.

Promotion

4. Be alert to cognitive off-loading—Assess the pros and cons; do you feel overwhelmed by how much of a presence technology is in your life? 5. If you can, put your phone down—Take the time to see how it feels and see what you can accomplish without using a device. Making a personal choice about tech. So, when you find yourself picking up your phone for the twentieth time during the day and it’s not yet noon, ask yourself the question posed to survey participants: Is technology enhancing my life or disrupting it? Are you happy to be engaged with your phone, or would you prefer to put it down for a while? We all want to harness the power of technology in our lives, but we also want to avoid its less attractive side effects. The choice is personal— there’s no right or wrong. As technology evolves, so will our own personal decisions about what it is we want from our ever-present smartphones and devices.

Angela Voland “GO GETTER” MAKES IT SEAMLESS Waterfront Condo Sales Specialist by Bella Group

2019-07-26-AngelaVoland-GMG-FINAL.indd 2-3


Promotion

“Angela is just such a go getter.” Carol Barefield, and her husband Tom, have used Angela for multiple transactions as sellers and buyers. Carol came to Angela pretty frustrated. “We were looking for homes and finding nothing. I eventually filled out something on the Internet. I received a call from Angela immediately. I thought, who is this person?” Carol found Waterfront Properties and Angela Voland via one of Waterfront’s marketing websites. “I’d never heard of a ‘pocket listing.’ Angela had all these properties that hadn’t yet gone to the MLS.” Angela found and sold the Barefield’s penthouse. Years later, when the time came to sell the penthouse, Angela sold it in just two days. “We were out of town. She got there with a photographer, shot these great photos and soon after called to say, ‘I think I have a buyer.’” Angela then found and sold the couple a large waterfront residence where they continue to reside for a portion of the year. The Barefield’s experience isn’t a one off. This is the experience Angela and her marketing team at Waterfront consistently delivers.

Start with the agent. A full-time resident of one of the barrier island’s premier condominium properties, Angela focuses on Singer Island and mainland waterfront condominium sales. Coming off 2018 sales of nearly $20 million, almost all of which were waterfront condominiums, Angela’s success is undeniable. “Singer Island is my home and previously I lived across the Intracoastal in the North Palm area. I know these areas intimately. I know what each property offers.” That’s the starting point of a process that sellers and buyers describe as efficient and seamless. “I’m very good at matching the right personality to the right property,” saving the seller and buyer time and energy. “I do a lot on my end to ensure my clients don’t have to.” The Connecticut transplant said once she gets a listing, she wants the seller to feel good about “letting me do everything.” Carol Barefield said, “My husband

is happy to sit back and pay to have someone do the work. That’s exactly what Angela did.” Building good business relationships that almost always turn into friendships, Angela never really leaves her clients. Carol said, “We had our new home extensively remodeled. Angela found us all the people we needed.” The same good working relationships she maintains with buyers and sellers, she enjoys with fellow agents. “It’s exciting for me to find and sell properties, often before they hit the public market. With the combination of Waterfront’s marketing resources and the relationships I have built with top area brokers, I’m able to do just that.”

Look beyond the agent. “Waterfront is as much a marketing firm as it is a real estate brokerage,” Angela said. Almost all of her nearly $20 million 2018 sales went to buyers generated by Waterfront’s marketing websites. “Between Waterfront’s Internet presence and our top notch digital marketing, I have 20 people behind the scenes marketing my sellers’ properties.” Waterfront Properties owner Rob Thomson said, “Angela’s secret is her preparation. What feels seamless, easy even, actually requires a ton of work on her part.” Asked to describe her intangible, Angela said, “enthusiasm.” We agree.

Exploring the Palm Beaches

H

aving just returned from vacationing in Northern California, I spent countless hours researching the best things to do in each city to assure we were hitting all the “bests” in the limited time we had. That’s part of the excitement of vacating, after all, and often the planning occupies more hours than the actual vacation! That’s why I love it when we do guides—it reminds me of the wonderful activities, restaurants, cultural amenities and opportunities that abound in Palm Beach County.

It’s easy to adopt this “been there, done that” attitude in your hometown, because it’s not regarded with the same fleetingness or newness, and we forget what’s right here in our own backyard. From art to zoos, we have it all outlined for you in “The Palm Beaches A to Z” on page 44, providing you with plenty of inspiration after your summer ventures, and taking you through the upcoming season. Attend a charity event, ballgame, concert, play or polo match, or plan a girls’ weekend or perfect date night using our suggestions. After all, we live here for a reason, so play tourist, see things in a new light and adopt the mindset of discovery in your own hometown. One of the biggest toys in our backyard is the infamous Mar-a-Lago. Some have never seen it in person, and most haven’t heard the tale of its not-so-humble beginnings from an insider, so “Mar-a-Lago and Me” on page 38 is a treat for us all. Recounting her childhood there, our writer, the step-granddaughter of Marjorie Merriweather Post, takes us into the psyche of her famous relative, the heir of the Post cereal fame. Not to be outdone by other well-heeled socialites of her time, Post sought the most impressive piece of property in Palm Beach and conceptualized with two architects to build the second largest mansion in Florida.

14

SEPTEMBER 2019

Spanish for “sea to lake,” Mar-a-Lago extends the entire width of Palm Beach from the Atlantic Ocean to the Intracoastal Waterway. Her procurement of materials for the massive project is both imaginative and shocking, as is the grandeur of this iconic estate, now a well-known club and household name as the Winter White House. The summer might be over, but the ongoing job of policing your child’s screen time isn’t. While we all know it impacts their social development, sleep patterns, self-esteem, weight and fitness, the debate of how much is too much in order to raise healthy, balanced kids in an era of electronics rages on. Some local parents weigh in on rules and restrictions for helping kids disconnect and encouraging parents to connect. Their advice: explore the digital world together and set up a family media plan that works for you. I hope you use this issue to explore the Palm Beaches and remember what you love about our little slice of paradise.

Attend a charity event, ballgame, concert, play or polo match, or plan a girls’ weekend or perfect date night using our suggestions.

Detox and De-stress

One of the best ways to prepare for a big event is by hitting the spa for a lymphatic drainage massage. If you’re unfamiliar with the trending treatment, it’s a gentle massage that reduces swelling and improves circulation throughout the lymphatic system. Doing so helps detox the body and filter out toxins to promote a healthy immune system. It also reduces excess water weight. Book a one-hour session at Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa. ($215 / 100 S.

Outfit the entire family at Roller Rabbit in Palm Beach.

Ready-to-wear highlights include this rosa matching set.

Roller Rabbit Discover a family-friendly fashion paradise By Melissa Puppo

T

he global lifestyle brand Roller Rabbit was inspired by a discarded fabric found in India. The piece of hand-blocked cotton in a rabbit print turned into a magical tale about the animal’s quest for joy, which steers the brand’s vision. Spanning to 12 global stores, the enchanting boutique recently relocated from a previous space on Worth Avenue to The Royal Poinciana Plaza. Inside, every twist and turn reveals a colorful splash of lifestyle offerings for women, kids and the home. In one corner of the store is a teepee made with a blue monkey-printed fabric. Sleeping bags and plush pillows spill out of a display that’s perfect for a kid’s room; some shoppers have even bought it for their pampered pups. And an interactive chalk wall and lounge area provide guests the chance to relax and socialize while shopping.

AN ARTISAN’S TOUCH What separates Roller Rabbit from other fashion retailers is the exclusive hand-block prints precisely applied to clothing and home goods. It all starts with a carved woodblock that artisans from around the world dip into ink and stamp onto the fabrics, churning out clothing with a playful spin. Favorite prints include the

signature rabbit, monkey, Hathi and Amanda, with additional designs incorporated throughout the year. This season, Creative Director Yuri Lee is bringing her breadth of experience to the brand by introducing several readyto-wear categories. These include tailored dresses, knits, bottoms and outerwear to add to the mix of already loved staples. Roller Rabbit CEO Andrew Seibert says,“Our design aesthetic in general hits on a crossroad of happy and artisan with touches of Bohemian stylings, colorful prints, flattering cuts and, simply put, globally inspired and made to share [pieces].” Some must-haves include the Faith Top, which takes a women’s group in India three days to hand embroider. Easy, breezy Kurtas and Tunics are ideal for Palm Beachers who want to go from the pool to a relaxed dinner. Plus, peruse countless colorful accessories to top off any outfit.

FIT FOR THE FAMILY The selection doesn’t end with women’s attire; Roller Rabbit offers trendy mommy-and-me dresses and tops. There are also matching Peruvian Pima cotton pajamas that can outfit every member of the family, including dad.

Judge Moss JOINS WATERFRONT PROPERTIES PALM BEACH

“The Company Matters” By Bella Group

estate than in any other location across the country. Judge said pointedly, “When their Internet search begins, buyers quickly see us.”

Jonathan “Judge” Moss has been a fixture in and around Palm Beach for years and has over twenty years of experience in residential and commercial real estate. A top producer with an impressive reputation for being knowledgeable, honest and straightforward, Judge made the move to Waterfront Properties in 2019 to further an already successful real estate career.

In Europe, where Waterfront maintains affiliate offices, Mayfair agents work in-country marketing Palm Beach sellers’ properties direct to European buyers seeking premiere properties on the Island. Even with all the resources and support, sellers’ success still comes down to Judge’s efforts on their behalf. “When I receive my commission check, my seller should know I’ve earned

Judge held senior brokerage positions at Sotheby’s International Realty, Brown Harris Stevens, and Christian Angle & Associates. Judge understands the business of Island real estate better than most. He brings valuable experience, market knowledge, financial savvy, and keen negotiating skills to Waterfront’s sellers and buyers. Judge called his new reality at Waterfront, “above and beyond his expectations.” In addition to the brokerage’s centrally located office at 333 Peruvian Avenue, Judge was attracted to the firm’s more than 20 staff members at the Jupiter headquarters. From their spacious, glassencased hive, the marketing group wields some of the industry’s most powerful digital technology and data, much of it proprietary, to help Waterfront’s agents aggressively market their homes. The marketing team’s tactics hinge on speed to market. Right out of the gate they place sellers’ properties on more than 6,000 real estate sites worldwide. This is especially important to attract national/international buyers. In 2018, more than 80% of buyers in the luxury domain began their search on the Internet. Buyers escaping high taxes are flocking from traditional feeder markets along the Eastern Seaboard. Canadian and European buyers invest more in South Florida real

every nickel of that commission.” He continued, “With Waterfront, I have more tools and more time to do the work that sells homes.” Waterfront Owner Rob Thomson said, “An agent of Judge’s stature would be welcome anywhere. He was already successful. I’m excited to see what he’ll do with our staff of marketing associates and arsenal of webbased tools.” Judge knows Palm Beach incredibly well. A focused listener, he also knows the surrounding markets. “I listen to understand, ‘okay, what’s motivating this buyer?’” This is precisely how Judge turned a would-be, offisland condo buyer into a Palm Beach homebuyer. “I knew it wasn’t a price issue. I educated the buyer about the property, the lifestyle, the local amenities and ‘we’ determined together that Palm Beach was the right fit.” Thomson said, “Seeing Judge come to value the benefit of a strong company behind his efforts doesn’t surprise me. It’s hard to argue with success.” And, why would you?

The Rough Road to Mayor KEITH JAMES LEARNED THE ROPES OF POLITICS EARLY, BECOMING THE FIRST AFRICAN AMERICAN STUDENT IN AN ALL-WHITE KANSAS SCHOOL. By Eric Barton | Photography by Austen Amacker

K

eith James was in third grade back in his hometown of Wichita, Kansas, when his teacher called his mom in for a conference. The teacher wanted James to go into an accelerated learning program at a school across town. But there was a catch. He would be the first African American student to attend. His mom, Patricia James, had grown up in small-town Oklahoma and went to college at Wichita State. Her first year there she fell in love. “He was a James Dean wannabe, a highschool dropout with a cigarette pack in his shirt sleeve and a pool hustler,” James says of his father. When Patricia James became pregnant, she dropped out of college and took a job as a maid. So when her son had the chance to get into a program for smart kids, she had a quick answer. “She didn’t bat an eye. She said, ‘I guess we’re going to bus him across town,’” James says. It would be another two years before Wichita began integrating its schools, and those two years of being the only African American student meant constant verbal abuse, James recalls. But it’s also what helped prepare him for his current role as mayor of West Palm Beach. He’s the first African American mayor since the city rewrote its charter in 1991 to give 30

SEPTEMBER 2019

mayors the power to oversee the government, a so-called strong mayor system. Those years as the only African American kid meant he had a trial-by-fire understanding of politics, of the need to befriend enemies and talk his way out of problems. In high school, James had a counselor ask him his plans for college. When James said his only goal was to get out of Kansas, the counselor asked if he’d considered the Ivy League. “I turned to him and said, ‘the Ivy what?’” James remembers. Throughout school, James had maintained a nearly perfect A average, mostly because his greatest fear was disappointing mom. “If I brought home a B, there had to be a pretty good explanation,” James says, “and there was never a good enough explanation.” James sat down with the counselor and wrote letters to every Ivy League school asking for applications. When he enrolled at Harvard, the change in culture was “a significant adjustment.” It wasn’t just about the different types of people, but it was also that James had never been east of Kansas City. While he had many successes, James says his biggest failure came in 2005. His kids were teenagers when James says it was his own arrogance that caused his divorce. “I had to look at myself in the mirror and take full responsibility for my failure of marriage.”

Five years passed before then-mayor Lois Frankel approached him about running for the city council. By then, James says he had faced the self-pity that followed hitting rock bottom. In this year’s election, James beat out two seasoned politicians in the first round of voting, capturing half of the votes and avoiding a runoff. He says he has an underlying mission with everything he does now to give everyone the opportunity to succeed in West Palm. “I want to build the ability for opportunity for all,” he says. That means more employment opportunities and affordable housing most of all, along with making the city more attractive to companies.” Being African American and leading the city carries a weight. “It does come with the responsibility that there is no room for error,” James says. “My mother taught me you must be twice as good.” He says he also knows he has a responsibility to succeed because of the sacrifice his mom made cleaning toilets for so many years. Patricia James, now 80, recently went to the graduation of James’ daughter, who also earned a law degree from Harvard. “I watched a tear go down my mother’s cheek,” James says. “That’s two generations now given an opportunity because of her sacrifice.” gulfstreammediagroup.com

On the Brain THE LATEST PERMANENT EXHIBIT AT THE SOUTH FLORIDA SCIENCE CENTER TOOK THREE YEARS AND $2.5 MILLION TO PRODUCE, AND IT’S NOT JUST CHALLENGING OUR MINDS—IT’S TEACHING US ABOUT THEM. By Clarissa Buch Photography by Austen Amacker

A

bout five years ago, Kate Arrizza’s mother, Suzanne Capaldo, suffered a massive stroke. At St. Mary’s Hospital in West Palm Beach, doctors told Arrizza her mother was experiencing the biggest brain bleed the hospital had seen to date. They gave Capaldo 72 hours to live. “My entire family came, and we were all ready to say goodbye,” Arrizza says. “I remember looking at her scans and staring at this huge white spot and having no idea what it was. Nobody in my family knew anything about the brain, which is why we had no idea what to expect when we got the news.” Miraculously, after eight weeks in the ICU and rehab, Capaldo was sent home. “She came out on the other side,” Arrizza says. “It’s been a long road ever since, but it’s made me realize how wonderful the brain is.”

32

SEPTEMBER 2019

Ironically, weeks before Capaldo was admitted to the hospital, Arrizza, CEO of the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium, was consumed with the museum’s latest permanent installation: “Journey Through the Human Brain.” It debuted in mid-March during Brain Awareness Week. “I grew up coming to the Science Center,” says the now 39-year-old. “It’s been in my blood ever since I could walk. When my team and I were trying to come up with ways to advance the museum and appeal to older audiences, we knew we wanted to create something impactful for people of all ages.” After about three years of development, the $2.5 million, 2,500-square-foot permanent installation is the most advanced exhibit on the human brain to be found anywhere in the world. Through a partnership with Florida Atlantic University’s Brain Institute, Max Planck

Florida Institute for Neuroscience, Quantum Foundation and the Stiles-Nicholson Foundation, “Journey Through the Human Brain” covers everything from the brain’s molecular and cellular level to the integrated circuitry that creates hopes, fears and memories. “The brain is endlessly fascinating, whether exploring how it generates our hopes and dreams or what goes wrong in brain disorders,” says Randy Blakely, Ph.D., executive director of the FAU Brain Institute. “Neuroscientists are giving us an increasingly detailed picture of how the brain is built and works, and we hope through this exhibit to inspire young minds to delve even deeper into brain science.” Set up inside a new west wing of the Science Center there are more than 30 interactive installations for adults and children. Among them are an augmented reality brain projection and an immersive Brain Development Wall, detailing the growth of the brain over a lifetime. Other noteworthy highlights include the “Lie to Me” interactive, showcasing the effort the brain goes through to lie, and the “Senses, Thoughts and Emotions Gallery,” allowing visitors to explore sight, taste, smell, hearing and touch. “The exhibit provides unique opportunities to engage and explore the expansive area of neuroscience,” says Nicole Baganz, Ph.D., FAU Brain Institute director of community engagement and programming. “Examples of exhibit experiences include a deep dive into brain anatomy; a tour through the senses and their connections to the brain; a perspective on facial recognition by identifying a lying face; and a head-banging engagement that reinforces the importance of helmets and the impact of repeated head blows.” Since the exhibit’s debut, there has been expressed interest to replicate it at other museums across the country, Arrizza says, potentially bringing a new stream of revenue to the Science Center. In addition, the custom-built exhibit, which is also bilingual, is completely updatable, which means real-time groundbreaking neuroscience discoveries can be added to the exhibit in less than 24 hours by Arrizza and her team. “It’s all come full circle,” she says. “Some of the doctors that treated my mother were here on opening day. There’s a place in the exhibit where you can scan a brain in something comparable to an MRI machine. It gives me such flashbacks because I remember looking at my mother’s scans and looking at this large white spot and asking what it was, and now I know it was the brain bleed. Between the exhibit and my mother, I’ve learned just how important brain health is, and now we’re sharing that with the public.”

Sui Generis City Southern charm and idiosyncratic works of art collide at the impeccably savvy Perry Lane Hotel in Savannah. By K AY L A Z I A D I E

T

here’s a captivating charm about Savannah, Georgia, that reels you in from the moment you step onto its Spanish moss-lined cobblestone streets. This stunning coastal city is notorious for its Southern charm, historic buildings and all-things-spooky. I’ll admit, I was a tad hesitant about its long-standing reputation as the “most haunted city in America.” With Savannah’s history dating back to 1733, too many places to count have been dubbed “possessed”—and the hotels are no exception. Luckily, my home away from home for a few days was one free of haunts. Having opened last summer, the Perry Lane Hotel is one of Savannah’s newest establishments in the Historic District. The boutique property houses 167 suites inside two brick towers that sit pretty and parallel to one another on a low-key cobblestone street. Its black-and-white marble checkered floors add a contemporary kick to lavish furnishings and a plethora of eccentric art pieces. My Thursday afternoon consisted of an hour-and-a-half

scenic boat ride with Outside Savannah to a riverside restaurant called The Wyld. Views of the Savannah River paired well with an aptly named Painkiller cocktail, fist-sized crab cakes and juicy pulled pork tacos. The boat trip back was as breezy as the day itself, especially after befriending several curious bottlenose dolphins—yes, dolphins—thanks to the river’s close proximity and connection

to the Atlantic Ocean. Back at the hotel, a stop at the in-house craft cocktail bar, The Wayward, was a must. A motorcycle hanging above the expansive bar adds character to the already lively space that’s adjacent to a mini arcade room. Steps away from the Perry Lane is an Irish pub named McDonough’s, a Savannah staple that was hitting its peak during weeknight karaoke. I returned to my room that night to sink into Frette Italian bed linens atop a plush king-size bed. The suite is as luxe as it is com-

fortable, with a complimentary jar of Byrd cookies filled daily; dimmable lighting; a sleek smart TV; and oversized windows with a lovely view of the Historic District. My first stop the next morning was to snag a highly anticipated Sticky Bunssant (think of a sticky bun made with croissant dough) at The Emporium Kitchen and Wine Market, which is next to the lobby. I experienced total enlightenment with my first bite of the buttery, sweet and flaky creation that’s only available on Friday mornings. With an evening ghost tour scheduled, I decided to spend the morning exploring Perry Lane, but not before an in-room full-body Swedish massage by Glow Medical Spa and Beauty Boutique. After that euphoric hour, I was heading down to the lobby when I ran into two nearly identical white statuettes of small, bare-skinned men with colossal heads and disproportionate bodies. They’re an art piece called “Twins” by Slovakian artist Viktor Frešo. The “Twins” are just one aspect of the hotel’s inimitable art collection. Perry Lane’s art and décor are due in part to its muse and grande dame, Adelaide Harcourt. Harcourt is a fictional character created by the corporate art curation company NINE dot ARTS. Her travels, life experiences and love of her city inspired Perry Lane’s design and sophistication. From divine wall paintings and intricate murals in the elevators, to obscure trinkets and accessories in every room, the art plays a crucial role in modeling the hotel’s personality after Savannah itself. There are 3,600 uncommon objects in Perry Lane—like a set of antique suitcases in the lobby—and more than 1,200 distinctive pieces of art—like the aforementioned peculiar statues. Art even makes its way up to the hotel’s rooftop bar, Peregrin. Not only does it boast an epic, colorful mural of a parrot by local artist Kipper Millsap, but also jaw-dropping panoramic views of downtown Savannah, twinkle lights, cozy seating, games like cornhole and a sectioned off pool. T.C. Michaels of Genteel & Bard led an evening walking ghost tour of Savannah’s most haunted squares. His stories ranged from mildly frightening to unabashedly

gory. Michaels’ emphasis on the tales being non-fiction (for the most part) made certain parts creepier, like standing in the parking lot of Husk at 12 W. Oglethorpe Ave. The restaurant serves Southern fare in an upscale environment, but there’s a catch: It’s built in a house dating back to 1898 that is notorious for paranormal activity. Golden hour in Savannah is as enchant-

ing as a fresh Sticky Bunssant, cushioning the blow of even his most deadly stories told as the sun set. From the Spanish moss canopied across every tree to artisan shops on each corner, Savannah is a seamless blend of quaint sophistication and just the right amount of spooky. The city’s past and constantly evolving present meet halfway to create a destination that keeps everyone— especially the dead—coming back for more.

complete smile makeover with dental implants and cosmetic crowns Jacky suffered with extensive dental problems at a young age. Some of her teeth were unable to be saved. She was very self-conscious of her bad teeth and wanted a bright healthy smile that made her look and feel better. Jacky had her failing teeth replaced with dental implants and underwent a complete smile makeover with cosmetic porcelain crowns. The entire procedure was performed under IV sedation, so Jacky experienced absolutely no discomfort. Now, Jacky looks more youthful, feels healthier and experiences a whole new sense of self-confidence.

Linda had her entire mouth restored with dental implants and permanently attached cosmetic bridgework. All the treatment was performed under IV sedation, so she never experienced any anxiety or discomfort.

Davies, and my step-grandmother was the legendary Marjorie Merriweather Post. Going to my grandparents’ was always exciting because granddaddy was more of a father than my actual father, an army general who was always traveling, at war, womanizing and not in the least fond of small children. He was good looking to the extreme, 6 feet, 7 inches and a world-class polo player, which undoubtedly added to his savoir-faire with the ladies. The first time I had a chance to explore Mar-a-Lago in depth was when we came down from Washington, D.C., early one year well before the season, which ran from Christmas until Easter. This particular year my mother, governess and I arrived in September when there was only a skeletal staff, although it would be considered gigantic by any other standard. So I had plenty of time to explore every nook and cranny of Mar-a-Lago to my heart’s content, as long as I did my homework and didn’t get in anyone’s way. At the time, I didn’t know the reason we were there early was so mother could establish residency to apply for a divorce as she’d accidentally discovered the latest women in my father’s life (there were always more than one!). Meanwhile, I was allowed to zip over to the Bath and Tennis Club to get my swimming lessons. At age 6, this made me feel extremely sophisticated and rather soigné. Of course, the reason this was possible was because Aunt Marjorie, as she disliked being called “grandmother,” had constructed a huge tunnel under AIA to protect the kiddies when they went to the beach or the B&T. Mar-a-Lago was a dream right out of “The Arabian Nights.” This was Aunt Marjorie’s second home in Palm Beach, the first being Hogarcito, or “Little Cottage,” over on Golfview Road. The name is as ironic as calling the Newport mansions “summer cottages.” Though not as lavish as Mar-a-Lago, it was still a most impressive home. Aunt Marjorie realized she needed something more grandiose than Hogarcito if she were to become the doyenne of the social scene. She would have to surpass El Mirasol, Lucretia Stotesbury’s famous estate. She obtained a geological survey to find the most solid coral ridge in Palm Beach to anchor the house. It would have to be on solid ground to support the home she had in mind and resist Florida’s hurricanes. For weeks, she crawled through animal paths along with the intrepid James Griffin—carpenter, caretaker and head groundskeeper—in search of the perfect location. They finally settled on a 17-acre tract that went from sea to lake, hence “Mar-a-Lago.” Once again, she chose Marion Wyeth, the soft-spoken Paris educated architect who had designed Hogarcito. She wanted a different style of house this time; one that could be constructed so the main rooms and the bedrooms could be accessed from a patio or courtyard, but she wasn’t excited by any of Wyeth’s drawings.

Then came a stroke of luck. While on a fishing trip to Florida in 1925, Flo Ziegfeld advised her to use Joe Urban, a Viennese architect who had some new, exciting ideas and had designed the lavish Ziegfeld Theater, as well as stage sets for the Metropolitan Opera. He had also served as architect to Emperor Franz Joseph and Hungary’s Count Carl Esterházy. As far as Aunt Marjorie was concerned, that did it. She cabled Urban immediately, and he arrived in Palm Beach 10 days later. She didn’t want the typical Spanish architecture so popular in Palm Beach at the time. Instead, she preferred something romantic and imaginative, and with Urban she got it. Because she did not want to make the house seem too big from the road, they decided to face the house away from AIA and form it around a large patio overlooking Lake Worth that would serve as a centerpiece for the 115-room estate. According to Urban, it would be a large crescent shape HispanoMoresque structure topped by a solitary tower. He alternately thrilled and horrified Aunt Marjorie by threatening to ruin her million-dollar budget, which, by the way, he did. Whenever she balked at the expenses he would say in his thick Viennese accent, “Oh, but Mrs. M., it is so beautiful!” Inspired from the views on all sides, Aunt Marjorie planned from the beginning to call the house Mar-a-Lago. The crescentshaped patio was girded by a curved cloister facing that shore. From there, guests could descend to the lawn or enter the cloister, which had staircases leading up to the second-story bedrooms. While on a trip to New York, Aunt Marjorie was walking on a Long Island Sound beach and discovered similarly shaped oval stones that were about the size of bread rolls in soft, multicolor hues and thought they would be perfect for the patio. She picked up all she could carry, and the next day, she sent a group of men (which grew in the next few days to a force of more than 600) to scour the beach for more stones. They picked up all they could find, sending them by rail to Florida. Despite not finding nearly enough, the enterprising Jimmy Griffin began searching other Long Island beaches and with his crew found similar stones, picking them up and shipping them south until the contractor finally said they had plenty. Today, that might be a problem with the ecologists, but in those days there was no thought. As the bills continued to mount, Aunt Marjorie had to call in Wyeth, her original architect and tell him he had to come back and manage the project as, “Urban may be an artist, but he’s definitely not a practical man.” She pleaded, “He doesn’t know anything about plumbing, heating, electricity or half the other things that go into making up a house.” Finally Wyeth agreed both to manage the job and to try and control Urban’s wild flights of

fancy that were proving so costly. The house was already way over budget; the final cost was more than $5 million, as opposed to the $1 million she had originally appropriated. But it would probably cost more than $500 million today. Because of the two architects—one classical and the other art nouveau—the house could not be said to be of one design or style, but whatever it was, it was spectacular. Among the other disparate building supplies that went into it, there were three boatloads of doric stone from Genoa. In the center of the living room on a slightly raised section (to make the most of the view) was an enormous window edged with stone pelicans, said to be the largest picture window ever built in the world at that time. This was my Captain Nemo window. Through it I sailed the seven seas, collecting great treasures from all over the ancient world. Wyeth added a rare collection of Moorish and Spanish tiles from the estate of New York socialite Mrs. Horace Havemeyer. Aunt Marjorie thought she was buying about 20,000 tiles, but there were more than double when the shipment arrived. One local architect at the time claimed Mar-a-Lago had more Hispano-Moorish tiles than anywhere outside the Alhambra in Spain. The tiles were a real stroke of luck for Donald Trump when he bought the property, as he found a huge cache of them in the garages and was able to use them when he converted some of the garages and servants’ quarters into the spa and guest quarters, having them tie together with the main house.

Inside the mansion is a 34foot high ceiling in the living room designed around a series of tall needlework tapestries, which once hung in a Venetian palazzo. To sustain the Italian theme, the ceiling was hand gilded in a sunburst design modified from the thousandwinged ceiling motif of the Accademia in Florence. Similarly, the seven arches around the living room were decorated in a millefleur background with the armorial insignia of the Venetian Doges. Beneath that were rare gilded Spanish lanterns, a 16th-century Spanish rug and a hooded Italian gothic fireplace, which is nothing less than breathtaking. Toward the back of the living room are four marble steps with Italian columns mounted on stone lions leading up to my Captain Nemo window where I voyaged endlessly as a child. Just beyond the fireplace is an arch leading to another small room called the monkey loggia, having stone carvings of the creatures, which somehow never appealed to me. A few years ago, I interviewed Donald Trump in New York for another article. He had no idea who I was or that I had any connection to the family or the property. Only knowing I lived in Fort Lauderdale, he said I’d have to visit Mar-a-Lago and see the additions he’d made to the property. When we finished, he asked if there was anything else I needed, so I said I’d just like to have one more party there. He was caught completely by surprise. I explained my family connection and that I’d spent part of every winter there as a child and continued to be a regular guest until Aunt Marjorie passed away. He graciously agreed, and we had an event for our cruising yacht club. When word got out about the party, we had any number of requests for new memberships. Since then, my step-cousin, Marjorie Post Dye, or Marwee (as she was known in the family), and I would meet there every year. She lived in Santa Monica in what we jokingly referred to as Mar-a-Lago West. Until Marwee’s recent death, at times during our stay we would dine with Trump or his sister. Whatever one thinks about Trump’s politics, he has done a fabulous job with Mar-a-Lago. He bought it furnished and has retained all of its original grandeur, tying in the additions and renovations of various spaces so they look like an original part of the property. My only reservation is that Trump has adopted our coat of arms as his own. It is The family crest with Trump’s carved into the hood of the firealterations place with the word “Integritas” as its motto. In the beginning, he took out “Integritas” and changed it to “Mar-a-Lago,” which I rather liked and thought Aunt Marjorie and granddaddy would have liked as well. But now he has changed it to “Trump.” It is now his logo on everything; clothes, golf hats and even the towels in the men’s and ladies’ rooms. To give him credit, he probably thought it was the Post crest, but it most definitely belongs to the Davies family.

La Posada Hosts “Teddy Cares” Drive For Children In Crisis Whenever a child is involved in a traumatic situation such as a fire, a car accident or other devastating event, they may feel confused, traumatized or scared by the experience. Wanting to provide comfort to children in distressing scenarios, La Posada, a premier senior living community, hosted a “Teddy Cares” drive to collect bears to donate to local first responders. These bears will then accompany firefighters on calls so that first responders can hand them out to children who are in the midst of a crisis. “We want to be a part of serving the greater Palm Beach Gardens community,” said Brad Cadiere, executive director of La Posada. “Through this initiative, we can show some of the youngest members of our community and their families that La Posada cares about their well-being. At La Posada, we embrace The Art of Living Well® philosophy and giving back to make a difference in the lives of others is a wellness opportunity that strengthens the spirit.”

altruism Starting with “A” isn’t the only reason altruism begins our list. Galas and giving back are the bread and butter of the Palm Beaches. During season (now through spring), schedules are booked with events supporting local charities and causes. Fundraisers range from black-tie affairs, like LIFE’s Lady in Red Gala; to indulgent invitations, such as the Palm Beach Wine Auction benefiting the Kravis Center; to fashion shows, including The Arc of Palm Beach County’s Wild Pants Party; to afternoon soirées, like the Hearing the Ovarian Cancer Whisper’s Time is of the Essence Luncheon. Just as important as dollars raised are dresses donned. Attendees in formal finery are captured on the last few pages of this magazine in our Scene + Heard section, which showcases photos from philanthropic happenings.

BASEBALL

During February and March, Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium in Jupiter and FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches in West Palm play host to four major league baseball teams: Miami Marlins, St. Louis Cardinals, Houston Astros and Washington Nationals. The Palm Beaches provide the perfect conditions for spring training, with sunny skies and dedicated fans. Both stadiums fit more than 7,000 attendees and offer unique experiences, like finishing a “Dean” dog (a one-third-pound frankfurter) at a Marlins and Cardinals game, or cheering on favorite past-president mascots in a race between innings at a Nationals game.

Clematis Clematis Street runs east and west in downtown West Palm Beach, lined with restaurants, bars and boutiques that culminate at the waterfront, which faces Palm Beach island. Centennial Square at the waterfront hosts a Saturday morning GreenMarket from October through April for locals to stock up on farm fruits, veggies, coffee, tea, herbs, spices and more.

D DINING For gastronomical gallivanting, West Palm Beach Food Tours offers three-hour cuisine excursions to local restaurants like Dr. Limon (where Peruvian dishes like ceviche and causa are the main attraction) and bars like The Blind Monk (think prosecco mojitos and Cubanos). Liquid diet? Reserve a spot on the Damn Good Beer Bus, which takes up to 14 ale lovers to three breweries on a four-hour tour, or lead yourself along the Ale Trail, which includes stops at breweries like Dixie Grill & Bar and Tequesta Brewing Co. Following the samples trend, Grandview Public Market is a food hall in West Palm with vendors from taco stands to crepe stations. And for those who want to experience the best restaurants in town at an affordable price, Flavor Palm Beach, which takes place this month with more than 50 participating restaurants offering a three-course lunch for $20 or dinner for $30 to $45 per person. For a dining experience that’s outof-the-box, or rather the bounds of four walls, Swank Farm in Loxahatchee hosts family-style dinners and brunches in a pole barn. gulfstreammediagroup.com

Entertainment

Perhaps the most anticipated event of the year is SunFest, a weekend in the spring when more than 50 bands and 130,000 fans head to the waterfront. When it comes to year-round entertainment, acts like Chris Stapleton and Zac Brown Band take the stage at Coral Sky Amphitheatre at the South Florida Fairgrounds. But for those who prefer monologues over music, Shakespeare by the Sea takes place at The Seabreeze Amphitheater in Carlin Park during two summer weekends. For traditional theater experiences, visits to the Palm Beach Opera or Maltz Jupiter Theatre are musts. And if the goal of the evening is to laugh, the Palm Beach Improv is a favorite spot for comedians, like Kevin Hart, to visit while on tour.

F Flagler Spend time on the east coast of Florida and you’ll become familiar with the name Flagler—there’s Flagler County, Flagler College, and in Palm Beach, the Flagler Museum. Henry Morrison Flagler was the American industrialist responsible for founding what became the Florida East Coast Railway. The Flagler Museum, or Whitehall, was his Gilded Age estate on Palm Beach island. Sixty years ago, it became a museum dedicated to displaying the life of Flagler. For an extended history lesson, the museum offers tours of The Breakers, the second hotel Flagler opened in Palm Beach. Today, descendants of his third wife, Mary Lily Kenan, still sit on the hotel’s board. SEPTEMBER 2019

Harbourside Place Jupiter’s Harbourside Place is a destination for dining, shopping and enjoying live music at the Amphitheater. During Sundays, peruse the Waterfront Market for goods by local vendors and artisans, or during weeknights take a sunset cruise on one of PonTiki’s boats. Have a boat of your own? Pull it up and park it at the marina before embarking on an evening of dining at favorites like Tommy Bahama and Calaveras Cantina, or book a staycation at the Wyndham Grand, which has 179 rooms and a rooftop pool with views of the harbor.

INTERNATIONAL POLO CLUB Palm Beachers take polo seriously. From late-December through April, the International Polo Club Palm Beach in Wellington is a destination for the most prestigious polo tournaments in the country.

While guided tours and museum exhibits preserve the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum’s rich history, modern uses have also taken shape, including exercise initiatives and professions of love. Twilight Yoga at the Light is led by local instructor Mary Veal every Monday evening by the Museum flag pole. A climb to the top reveals a destination for couples to get engaged, or down below they might book the wedding venue, which boasts water views and shade beneath the branches of a mighty banyan tree. gulfstreammediagroup.com

Not only does the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts boast three venues that facilitate nearly 550 events and 500,000 guests each season, but the cultural hub is also expanding thanks to a $50 million initiative. The update, due for completion in summer 2020, will include a new valet garage, technology advancements and an expanded Dreyfoos Hall Lobby. In the meantime, though, the show must go on with a fall lineup that includes “Fiddler on the Roof ” and performances by the Miami City Ballet.

LUXURIOUS STAYS Locals and visitors alike want to vacation in the Palm Beaches. Quintessential to the island is The Colony Palm Beach, just steps (or a ride on the hotel’s pink bikes) away from Worth Avenue. Not far is The Brazilian Court Hotel & Beach Club, home to celebrity chef Daniel Boulud’s award-winning Café Boulud. Keep traveling north and you’ll come across The Breakers, a destination for attending galas, dining at The Circle, grabbing drinks at HMF, booking treatments at the spa and, if you’re like the celebrity couple Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello, getting married. The Breakers has something in common with two other mustvisit hotels: the Four Seasons Resort in Palm Beach and the Eau Palm Beach Resort in Manalapan. All three were listed among the best resorts in Florida by Condé Nast Traveler this past year. The Eau and Four Seasons also hold five-star ratings from the Forbes Travel Guide. SEPTEMBER 2019

With the ocean as a next-door neighbor, facilities like the Manatee Lagoon provide education and encounters to the community. Loggerhead Marinelife Center not only offers learning experiences, but the non-profit also researches and rehabilitates Florida’s most beloved animal: the sea turtle. The facility treats 100 sea turtles and 1,000 hatchlings a year, giving “patients” names like “Hopper” and “Willis.” LMC hosts its annual Go Blue Awards Luncheon next month at the Kravis Center, featuring keynote speaker Robert Ballard, an underwater archaeologist known for finding the RMS Titanic in 1985.

Outdoors

There is no shortage of ways to enjoy the outdoors in Palm Beach. From biking to paddleboarding, both the land and sea abound with opportunities for getting out and active. John D. MacArthur State Park, between the Atlantic Ocean and Lake Worth Lagoon in North Palm Beach, is a destination for swimming, snorkeling and fishing, as well as walking along a nature trail, kayaking and canoeing. Farther north in Jupiter, Riverbend Park not only offers hiking and biking paths, but also equestrian trails. Keeping with the animalfriendly trend, Jupiter Dog Beach, a 2.5-mile stretch of sand and ocean, is the only free dog beach in the county.

The expansion broke ground in 2016 to increase exhibit space, add a sculpture garden, launch a restaurant and recreate the entrance on South Dixie Highway, which now includes a water feature and gigantic typewriter eraser sculpture by Sweden-born pop artist Claes Oldenburg. Also noteworthy is the awning, which was designed with a circular hole as to not disrupt the branches of a century-old mammoth ficus tree. Now with 35 percent more exhibit space, the Norton Museum continues to display American, Chinese, European and contemporary art, with free entry on Fridays and Saturdays thanks to donors.

P Palm Beach Gardens With what’s left of the back-to-school shopping budget, a visit to Palm Beach Gardens is in order. The Gardens Mall, anchored by Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s, has more than 150 high-end storefronts— Tiffany & Co., Tumi, Jimmy Choo, to name a few—and restaurants like Cooper’s Hawk and True Food Kitchen. Downtown at the Gardens offers upscale boutiques, like Lola Chiq and Blessed Boutique, and specialty shops, including The Spice & Tea Exchange for herbal gourmet teas as well as Whole Pet Essentials for picking up an apology present for that pooch who spent the day home alone. Legacy Place is another shopping destination for retailers like Golftec and The Container Store, as well as beauty, fitness and dining outposts. Don’t shop until you drop before making it to PGA Commons for perusing art at Onessimo Fine Art Gallery and Studio E Gallery, and grabbing a bite at Prosecco Cafe or Kabuki Sushi Thai Tapas.

Q QUINTESSENTIAL PALM BEACH There’s nothing that says Palm Beach more than a Lilly Pulitzer print. Last fall, the brand opened on Worth Avenue where the legacy began 60 years ago. The story goes that Pulitzer was operating a juice stand on the Ave when she was inspired to design bright, patterned clothing for herself to disguise stains. Now, the eponymous resort wear outpost on Palm Beach island not only displays her classic shift dresses in paisley patterns, but it also carries the brand’s newly launched golf collection. On select days, guests can stop in to meet with resident artist Melissa Sixma Lingo and design a custom, hand-painted Lilly bag inspired by a photo (often of a pet!) of their choice.

Rosemary Square What was once known in West Palm Beach as CityPlace is transforming into Rosemary Square. The 72-acre neighborhood adjacent to the also newly branded Virgin Trains station (more on that later) is reaping the benefits of a $550 million investment plan that is rolling out over the next five years. Related Companies, the real estate firm behind the project, broke ground this summer on one of the biggest initiatives: 360 Rosemary, a new center of commerce, which will add 1,200 additional jobs and operate out of a 300,000-squarefoot, LEED Gold office building.

V VIRGIN TRAINS

Virgin Trains USA, formerly Brightline, is a fast-speed passenger rail service that travels between Miami, Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Travelers can choose between Smart or Select seating, each granting guests features including leather seats and complimentary Wi-Fi. Those who pay a little extra for Select service can also order unlimited food and beverages, and access a dedicated lounge while they wait for the train to arrive. Virgin plans to add a station in Boca Raton next; and by 2022, the final stop after West Palm Beach will be at Orlando International Airport, reached in about two hours.

Worth Avenue

Synonymous with Palm Beach fashion and recreation, Worth Avenue is the cornerstone of the island. More than a century ago, Moorish-Mediterranean-style buildings that housed designer brands began cropping up along the iconic street, credited to none other than Addison Mizner. Today, stores like Tiffany & Co. and restaurants like Taboo have long histories on the Ave. Meanwhile, newer stores, like Raptis Rare Books and restaurants like Hai House are only starting their legacies. Stroll from west to east and you’ll find the iconic Worth Avenue clock tower just steps from the beach.

XL Art We cheated this one a bit, but it’s true that art takes shape in a big way in Palm Beach. From public murals to larger-than-life sculptures, there are plenty of opportunities to feel small and inspired all at once. The Society of the Four Arts displays a collection of outdoor pieces, including “Intetra” by Isamu Noguchi, a stainless-steel pyramid that can be seen from across the Intracoastal when looking at the island from West Palm Beach’s waterfront. The Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens in West Palm is set behind the late artist’s home and showcases her nine monumental structures that are as tall as 28 feet. CANVAS murals, like the “Einstein’s Theory of Love” painting on the Subculture Coffeehouse patio wall, are also scattered throughout downtown, adding culture and color. gulfstreammediagroup.com

We’ll end this piece predictably. (Any better ideas for “Z”?) But, the wildlife experiences in Palm Beach do deserve recognition. The Palm Beach Zoo in West Palm Beach is what you think of as a traditional zoo. Meanwhile, Lion Country Safari, the only drive-thru safari in Florida, allows guests to take a cruise through the preserves where more than 1,000 animals, like zebras, rhinoceros and giraffes live. Busch Wildlife Sanctuary in Jupiter not only offers educational opportunities, but it also rescues, rehabilitates and releases wild animals. And although it isn’t necessarily a “zoo,” the South Florida Science Center’s “Aquariums of the Atlantic” is home to eels, stingrays, sharks and seahorses.

THE ART OF FACELIFTS Athena Plastic Surgery & Medspa Dr. Avron Lipschitz Dr. Avron Lipschitz has an insatiable interest in the three key elements of plastic surgery: art, science and care. His lifelong love affair with facial rejuvenation began at the University of Cape Town, where he earned his medical degree. He trained in multiple disciplines throughout South Africa, in England and around the world, refining his skills along the way. In the United States, he accepted fellowships at Johns Hopkins University, the University of Maryland Medical Center, New York University and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. His business, Athena Plastic Surgery and Medspa, specializes in cosmetic procedures of the face. “Facial rejuvenation is my passion,” he says. “Many patients come to me saying they do not recognize the person in the mirror, or the mirror does not reflect the patient’s true identity. The amazing part of plastic surgery is that a patient’s sense of self is transformed.” He decided to locate in the Palm Beaches because its residents are aesthetically minded. “In South Florida, everyone is a potential candidate for plastic surgery,” he says. “We take care of everyone from soccer moms to CEOs to retirees. The demand is high.” Athena Plastic Surgery and Medspa offers a onestop-shop of everything from the popular HydraFacial to results-oriented facelifts.

Inspired early on by stories she read about how plastic surgery helped those with traumatic injuries, she set her sights on John’s Hopkins University and earned a medical degree. “I have always been good with my hands and have always worked well with people, especially one-on-one,” she says. “Plastic surgery seemed to be designed to meet what I wanted to do with my life.” The demand for her expertise has grown recently in an era in which everyone is obsessed with selfies. “Our society is becoming more and more enamored, it seems, with seeing and taking pictures of ourselves and others,” she says. “I think this leads to some problems because selfies tend to make people look distorted–nose too big, chin too small, etc. It all comes down to figuring out what the needs and desires of the individual are and working out possible solutions for that individual.” When she is not expressing herself in the operating room, she is doing so by playing the flute or creating artwork.

Tina Veil has been creating kitchen designs throughout Florida, the Caribbean and the United States for 40 years, 29 of them with Signature Cabinetry & Design on U.S. Highway 1 in North Palm Beach. She specializes in space planning – specifically space planning that is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act – and kosher kitchens. “Trends and technology are always on the move, making continuous training imperative,” she says. She draws her inspiration from her clients. “Quite often, clients will ask for the same kitchen I designed for their friend or family member,” she says. “That is a compliment, but as the planning begins, it clearly becomes all about their lifestyle and needs.” She tells her clients that with the colors and styles available today, it’s easy to create a beautiful look. Her goal is equal parts form and function, the end result being a kitchen that is a smart workplace. “Trends in the local area lean toward the creams, whites and soft coastal colors, with transitional elements, but sleek contemporary also is back, highlighted by wood tones, whether natural or laminate,” she says. Signature Cabinetry & Design’s stellar showroom, which she arranged, is where her talented team is ready to meet with those wanting to update their kitchens – and bathrooms – as well as any other spaces needing cabinetry.

THE ALWAYS CONNECTED PARENT THESE DAYS, RAISING KIDS MEANS CONSTANTLY WORRYING AND RESEARCHING SCREEN TIME, BUT OUR EXPERTS HAVE ADVICE ON HOW TO STAY ON TOP OF IT. By Eric Barton | Photography by Austen Amacker

S

itting down in a restaurant, that’s when it all so often breaks down, right? All those rules, all your best intentions, they’re forgotten for the sake of sanity. Maybe the little one starts to cry, or the middle kid smacks his brother, or the older one gets moody. The solution to calm the chaos is there, likely tucked away in their little pockets. Time on that tablet or phone can end those stares you’re getting from the next table over. Right at that moment, all the rules you’ve set governing screen time and forbidding devices at dinner are forgotten for the greater good. You likely already know the cost of these compromises. Studies have shown too much screen time can harm children,

including decreased health and self-esteem. But this isn’t one of those stories that’s going to shame you for exposing your kids to technology. In fact, for every study that’s critical of handing tablets and phones to kids, there’s another that says it can be done right. In fact, giving them screen access can improve learning. To help navigate these absolutely confusing parental times, we talked to experts. Not some desk-bound researchers, but local moms on the front lines of the issues of technology versus parenting. They’ve found some answers, and maybe identified problems you didn’t know existed. Their stories just might help you navigate the unchartered waters of raising kids in the era of information.

Never Stop Learning About Technology

L

ike a lot of parents these days, Michelle Oyola McGovern finds herself constantly researching the technology her kids might come across. Her girls are 11 and 13, meaning they’re neck-deep in it. The Wellington resident is the former state director to U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and recently started working as the director of government and community relations for Baptist Health South Florida. In what little free time her work has allowed, she reads up on the newest social networking changes, listens to tech-related podcasts and is constantly talking with other parents about what kids are into. She and her husband, John McGovern, don’t have hardand-fast limitations on technology. “My screen time rules are kind of like how we handle chores. When the trash is full, take it out,” McGovern says. “With the phones, I’ll just say, ‘You’ve been on the phone too long. Cut it out.’” She’s right to regulate screen time. Studies have linked time on screens with insomnia, slower social development, reduced self-esteem and weight gain. In short, allow kids to spend too much time on smart devices and you’ll increase their behavioral issues while also harming key relationships. Nearly half of parents say technology has a negative impact on their interactions with their kids at least three times a

day—a number many parents no doubt will think sounds downplayed. To prevent this, McGovern has access to her girls’ phones and constantly monitors their messages and social media posts. When she allowed them on Instagram, she set a rule: the girls were not allowed to post pictures of themselves for the first year. She says it helped in keeping them from getting caught up in the self-obsession of Instagram and also the self-doubt of body image that can result from posting selfies. The rule helped, McGovern says, but she also learned a while into the Instagram experiment that she had failed to monitor part of it: Instagram’s messaging system. “I had no idea I had to monitor that, too,” McGovern says. Then there was the YouTube kerfuffle in her house. Both of her girls are constantly watching videos, and one of their favorites was internet celeb Logan Paul. When Paul posted a video of a dead body he discovered while hiking through a forest in Japan where locals go to take their own lives, McGovern knew she had to intervene. She banned his feed and even threw away a sweatshirt one of the girls had from him. While it wasn’t an easy parenting moment, McGovern tried to turn it around. “We turned it into a conversation,” she says. “I tried to tell them that you have to understand people are human beings and not to make false idols of them, especially YouTube celebrities. We also talked about suicide and the seriousness of the issue. In the end, I think they learned from it.” Not long after, McGovern discovered another new way the girls could communicate: within the shared Google documents they use to do group school projects. Monitoring those messages can be far trickier, requiring McGovern to go deep into the “track-changes” history of anything that has been deleted. “It’s just a constant process of researching what’s new,” McGovern says. “As a parent now, you have to. You really have to.”

When Learning and Screen Time Rules Cross

I

n Meg Palumbo’s Wellington household, rules govern the screen time and internet access for her kids. The reason will be obvious to any parent these days. “They get totally addicted,” Palumbo says. As the owner and founder of the Palm Beach Moms Blog, Palumbo spends a lot of time thinking about what defines good parenting. She’s often analyzing the tech access for her three kids. Her boys, 4 and 7, each have an iPad. And already, her 17-month-old daughter is constantly reaching for cell phones and tablets. According to BBC, kids 5 to 16 years old spend more than six hours a day looking at phones, screens or TVs. It’s even more dramatic for teenage boys, who spend eight hours staring at screens. Those numbers are up from just 3.5 hours a day in 1995 and 4.5 hours in 2014. (No doubt kids are learning it from us—adults now average nine hours and 22 minutes a day on screens, half of it on our phones.) A big reason for all that screen time stems from the wide access kids have to screens. A 2017 study found that 42 percent of children younger than 8 years old have a tablet, up from just seven percent in 2013. To curtail her kids’ time on the internet, Palumbo typically restricts them to half-hour blocks on their tablets. Sometimes she’ll allow for longer if she’s cooking dinner and needs some quiet. But the kids are not allowed to pick up screens during dinner. Palumbo uses a program through her internet provider to cut off the Wi-Fi access to her boys’ tablets after a set number of hours a day. She also requires them to use their devices in shared spaces of the house, never locked away

gulfstreammediagroup.com

in their rooms alone. “I want to be something of a helicopter mom when it comes to screen time,” Palumbo says. The problem with setting such rules, Palumbo discovered recently, is that the kids are also spending time on screens for school. Palm Beach County schools use what’s called the i-Ready program, and Palumbo says it means students spend an hour or more a day on computers. Then, the program requires 45 minutes a week of math and reading at home. Her kids argue that the time shouldn’t be subtracted from their screen time restrictions, but Palumbo has so far counted it. “It’s a constant battle,” Palumbo says. “They’re always wanting more time, wanting to subtract learning from the total. And I know it’s only going to get worse as they get older.”

Screen Time Rules vs. Common Sense

W

hen Kim McGarry was a kid, her parents had a rule that many of a certain age will remember—and will also sound adorably quaint by today’s standards. To monitor conversations she was having with friends, McGarry’s father forbid her from having a phone in her room. So, when her parents left, McGarry would replace their home phone’s short cord with a long one that would stretch into her room. “My dad would come home, and I’d have to run so fast to go replace the cord.” It’s an anecdote McGarry, a food blogger and former teacher who lives in Lake Worth, thinks a lot about in trying to set screen time rules for her two boys, who are 11 and 13. She knows no matter how hard she tries to monitor them, it isn’t be hard for children these days to figure out ways around restrictions. It’s common for parents to set rules for their kids’ access to computers, devices, video games and phones. Help kids set the rules and they’re less likely to complain about the limits, experts say. That begins for many parents by creating a “media plan” that spells out screen time and internet access. The most obvious reason is to keep children from inappropriate content, but restrictions are often geared toward limiting access overall, typically out of a moral belief that too much screen time equals problems. That said, an Oxford University study in December 2017 found no link between screen time restrictions and a kid’s well-being. The study’s author suggested instead parents ought to be “exploring the digital world together” with their children. That’s essentially how McGarry has handled the digital world. From her own experience as a kid, she knows rules can be easily broken or turned into something contentious; she simply follows common sense. When her sons spend too much time on the Xbox, she tells them to stop. When they’ve been on their phone too long, she tells them to go outside. It’s something she says she constantly monitors. It was easier at first, when the boys only had Kindles that could be programmed to shut off after a certain amount of time. She

92

gave her oldest a cell phone when he started middle school, and so now she’s constantly monitoring his time on it and other devices. “I’m very big on limiting screen time. It’s never at the dinner table, and I’m always telling him to put it away and go outside or have a real conversation with someone,” McGarry says. In some ways it has gotten easier as the boys get older, McGarry says. She no longer needs screens to occupy them when they’re, say, out to dinner, but she does need to constantly remind them to disconnect. The issue is one that weighs on many parents, and McGarry says there’s a pressure and stigma related to kids buried in a screen that she wants to avoid. “As a parent, you always have to be wondering, ‘Should I be doing more?’ ‘Am I making the right decisions on screen time?’ ‘Should I have stricter rules?’” she says. But then she thinks back to those hours she’d spend as a kid on the phone, her secret cord stretched into her bedroom. She turned out all right, and she knows, even with the onslaught of technology at every turn, so will the kids of today.

Todd’s at EmKo Chef Todd English brings new energy to the Dixie Highway corridor By Melissa Puppo | Photos by Dukins Nelson

T

he Dixie Highway corridor usually goes under the radar, but with a culinary resurgence, it’s alive and bustling with some of the hottest dining destinations West Palm Beach has seen in years. It’s not downtown nor the island, but that’s what makes this neck of the woods the town’s bestkept secret. To top off the dynamic scene is Todd’s from James Beard award-winning chef Todd English. In January, English launched his namesake inside EmKo Palm Beach, a multipurpose art gallery boasting sculpture gardens and ample artistic attributes, attracting hefty crowds during season for lively dinners and brunches. While Todd’s is a contemporary dining venue today, the building once housed a 1925 Cadillac dealership with a few conversation starters still intact, like the original red and blue stripes on soaring pecky cypress ceilings and an antique convertible freight elevator that transports guests to numerous art-filled spaces. A sculpture of a cheetah sitting on the bar and upbeat music create an unmatched ambiance for diners—all

elements thought up by English and EmKo owner Leo Koel. We recommend a trip to Todd’s for happy hour specials including $10-andunder bites like the T.E. Calamari, Artichoke Tempura and Mini Salmon Cakes with sweet chili sauce and scallions paired with a Blue Thyme cocktail. Stay for a while to savor several signature dishes English has been crafting since his early days in the kitchen. Locals who follow the renowned chef might be familiar with his Old School Tuscan Bolognese or Eggplant Parmigiana. But there are fresh takes as well, such as the Tuna Tartare, which Classic T.E. Burger

blends Asian influences like crispy wonton and sriracha ginger, in addition to a standout, 36-ounce Tomahawk steak. “The idea was to offer a variety of options, as Todd’s is located in the middle of a vibrant neighborhood influenced by creative spaces, such as The Norton, The Armory Art Center or The EmKo Gallery,” English says. Known for his huge portion sizes, there’s a one-pound meatball, which is a mix of veal, pork and beef that’s finished off with San Marzano tomatoes and whipped basil ricotta. English calls it the “super-size of the meatballs,” and it’s a dish he’d make at home during “meatball weekend” watching football with his family. His other pride and joy, and seemingly everyone else’s, is the white chocolate bread pudding. Pass on this dessert at your own peril; it’s a smooth, luscious treat that is best shared with others. “We see people acting like Meg Ryan in the movie ‘When Harry Met Sally,’” English jokes of his indulgent treat. “It’s not uncommon for others to tell the waitstaff: ‘I’ll have what she’s having.’’’ As for English, he’s best known for popping around to tables and shaving truffles onto guests’ plates when he’s in town. He plans to make the Palm Beaches home soon—when he’s not tending to his other restaurants around the world, including in Dubai, New York and Boston. That can only mean more mouth-watering dishes are yet to come.

Cocktail Hour with Josh Cohen

WHO: Founder and president of luxury-hospitality company Baybes, Natalia Pieschacon WHAT: The signature Carolina Sweet Tea cocktail; the famous Batch Chicken ‘N’ Waffles of sweet tea brined and fried half-chicken, a homemade cornbread waffle served with chili-thyme honey and bourbon maple butter; the BBQ Jackfruit “Pulled Pork” Sandwich of shredded jackfruit, homemade root beer barbecue sauce, crispy onion straws and homemade pickles on a potato bun; and the new Homemade Chicken Salad Sandwich of pulled smoked chicken, mayo, celery and golden raisins topped with pea sprouts on multigrain bread. WHERE: Batch New Southern Kitchen & Tap / 223 Clematis St., West Palm Beach / 561.708.0000

/ batchsouthernkitchen.com / @batchwpb

1

The idea to launch the Baybes concept first came to me: just over five years ago. I

had been asked to bartend a private party for my friend’s boss, and I had an absolute blast doing it. I also realized that I was making more money than I would have at my regular bar job. When that event was over I thought to myself, “I need to do this more often. There’s an actual need and a market for this.”

2

Of all the lavish parties and events we’ve ever partnered with, the one I’ll never forget was: the very first extravagant

event Baybes was ever booked for: a three-day Indian wedding celebration aboard a 220-foot mega-yacht. I was so nervous going in. They had booked more staff than I actually had at that time. There were so many moving parts that I needed to put together to make it work. It really took me out of my comfort zone. I’ll never forget that day, and that’s when it hit me, “OK Natalia, you actually have a real company now.”

3

What most people probably don’t realize about the company is: the vast major-

ity of these women are coming to us equipped with professional hospitality training and experience from very high-end, very well respected hotels, resorts and establishments. We demand an elevated level of professionalism. Our clients are paying a premium for an elevated hospitality experience. That is the expectation. They not only represent themselves and their own personal brands, but they represent this company, our brand and all of our partners.

A

native Floridian of Colombian descent, Natalia Pieschacon founded her company in August 2014 at age 23 with no prior business experience. Her company, Baybes, creates a personalized, upscale hospitality experience for lavish parties, high-end corporate gatherings and charitable events that have been attended by celebrities like David Beckham to President Donald Trump. Employing and empowering a team of young women, Pieschacon and Baybes now activate about 230 events annually. A fitness enthusiast and certified personal trainer who enjoys traveling the world, Pieschacon currently resides in Delray Beach.

4

As a female entrepreneur and the founder of my own company, the best advice I can pass along to others entering the workforce is: to always remain consistent, in

both the good times and the bad times—and trust me there will be plenty of both. Always surround yourself with people that inspire you; that you can learn from. And when it comes to making decisions, never sacrifice your core beliefs.

A

last month edition of the Sunday New York Times had a special section telling you everything you didn’t want to hear about the decline of American newspapers. The section focused on the closing of a few small weekly papers, some of them around for more than 100 years. It also mentioned the once major papers that are no more, some of them having merged into former competitors. The Times reported that during the last 15 years some 2,100 newspapers, or roughly a quarter of all local newsrooms, have either merged or ceased printing. Most of them you never heard of, but some, including Denver’s Rocky Mountain News and The Cincinnati Post, were once powerful voices in their markets. Hundreds of counties, including many in the south, don’t even have modest weekly papers. Our personal history has confirmed this trend. The Philadelphia neighborhood weekly paper we did some work for as a teenager once had a big following. It is long closed. So is the Evening Bulletin, once the dominant paper in Philadelphia, for which we were a stringer in college. Locally, in the late 1980s we were briefly a columnist for the Hollywood Sun-Tattler, now 30 years in the grave. The New York Times piece appeared just before the announcement of a proposal that two of the largest newspaper chains would become one. GateHouse Media, owner of The Palm Beach Post and Palm Beach Daily News, and 450 other papers, wants to acquire Gannett, which owns more than 100 papers, plus USA Today. The Times cited GateHouse’s operating 120

style: cutting staff at its acquisitions by about half in a matter of months. Considering that most papers have been forced to make similar cuts, our three prominent Florida papers (Miami Herald, Sun-Sentinel and The Palm Beach Post) have done an admirable job of maintaining quality. he problem is that newspaper readers are aging. Some younger people have never read one, much less subscribed. While the print industry may be the most obvious victim of the internet revolution, other media are feeling the pain. Mainstream evening news is largely watched by an audience that’s dying off. Notice how many ads are about health care or selling your insurance policy to provide retirement income? Those ads don’t mention that you might be just a chest event away from cashing in that policy, providing plenty of retirement income for the beneficiary. So where do people go for information? The internet, of course. It is often ahead of not only the papers, but also mainstream TV, in reporting stories. Example: Last month TV was reporting that the El Paso mass mur-

T

derer had left a manifesto, but it did not report the details. Switch to the internet and there it was before it was published by the mainstream channels and a full day before it appeared in newspapers. It seems that somebody out there always knows the identity of mass shooters or figures involved in other sensitive matters before the authorities are willing to release names. The danger, of course, is inaccuracy. We saw one name briefly connected to the Dayton mass murders that turned out to be wrong. It was also reported initially that the real shooter was a perfectly normal kid, but he turned out to be anything but. The internet revolution has brought pain to numerous industries. Big stores—and sometimes whole malls—are closing. People who like to shop (and a lot of younger folks don’t) still go to stores, but increasingly the ease of online buying is having an effect. Many other industries are being forced to evolve, not all because of the internet, but because old habits are disappearing. his issue features Jennifer Conover’s remembrance (page 38) of living part-time at Mar-a-Lago. She describes the architectural turmoil behind designing that great house. Now, believe it or not, architecture is another field feeling the pressure. Rich people still hire architects, but many less well heeled save money by either designing their own structures, (the internet can be helpful) or picking one already in the inventory of their builder. Some politicians think we have too many modern-day Marjorie Merriweather Posts. But not architects.
