StMarysMC.com We heal for Terry. Terry T ipple Â… Str oke Survivor 2015Ali R. Malek, MDMedical Director, SMMC Comprehensive Stroke Center8 Years COMMENTARYThe Lord giveth and the Lord taketh awayThe celebration of Memorial Day is a poignant pause just as the last blush of spring is spent. Lush greens replace the explosion of color in many a well-tended garden. The three-day weekend is the unofficial beginning of summer. My family observes the holiday traversing the miles separating our kith and kin to share a celebratory reunion. Before we are anaesthetized completely by a midday potluck, we rally and head out the door, laden with flowers to lay at the headstones of our dearly departed. We refer to the ritual as ÂDecoration Day,ÂŽ a tradition southernized with fried chicken and lemon chess pie; but it began centuries earlier with mourners placing flowers on the graves of fallen warriors. The tradition began in this country before the Civil War. That terrible and bloody conflict gave it permanence. Cemeteries swollen with fresh graves were stark testimony to the biblical pro-portions of lives lost, North and South. Grieving wives, daughters and mothers sought in their flower gardens evidence that beauty still lived. We have since added to this ritual, public memorials to institutionalize the indelible mark left upon the nation as a whole by individuals, events and ideas. They are intended to outlast our short-lived bouquets and make permanent that which is fleeting. There are times, however, when our selective memory gives us cause to regret the rose of the lens with which we justify our commemorations. With the benefit of hindsight, the public expression of institutional gratitude may fail to stand the test of time. Thus does the harsh light of the present reveal the flaws in subjective and preju-dicial thinking frozen in time. We know too much and cannot easily bask in the hyperbole. A public debate commences soon thereafter. How best to re-comprise the legacy tarnished by unvarnished truth? Scales fall from our collective eyes. We see the limitations in past presump-tions, mirrored as they are, from a point of view transformed by time. A wave of second thoughts sweeps the flowers out the door. We are called upon to change our minds. Changing our minds doesnÂt always happen, of course. For example, pro-testers recently demanded the name of Woodrow Wilson, the 28th U.S. president, be removed from PrincetonÂs Woodrow Wilson School of Public Pol-icy and International Affairs, and from any other buildings on campus bearing his name Â„ including the banishment of his image from the dining hall. The reason? Wilson was a segregationist. He is believed by some to have been also keen on the Ku Klux Klan. The universityÂs board of trustees declined. They voted to retain WilsonÂs name on the schoolÂs edifices, and keep intact other evidence of WilsonÂs honor-ifics, at least for now. Christopher L. Eisgruber, the university president, said trustees had Ârightly reached the conclusionÂŽ the best way for the university to honor the principle of diversity Âis not by tearing down names from the past but rather being more honest about our history, includ-ing the bad parts of our history.ÂŽ In other words, the debate is not over. Similar skirmishes have occurred in Florida over display of the Confeder-ate flag on government buildings and grounds. It has been tortuous to observe public officials splitting hairs, trying to politically accommodate a fictional ver-sion of Southern heritage absent slavery as the Confederate cause Â„ and fly the flag anyway, despite its racist roots. So it was surprising that earlier this year FloridaÂs state Legislature approved legislation to replace the statue of Con-federate Gen. Edmond Kirby that stands in the U.S. CapitolÂs Statuary Hall. Each state selects two individuals for the honor and can change choices from time to time. FloridaÂs second honoree is Dr. John Gorrie, the inventor of air conditioning. No one is contesting his hallowed status.But Gen. Kirby didnÂt spend much time in Florida, and he and his family were slaveholders. He took his slave, Alexan-der Darnes, to war as his personal valet. Alexander did everything Gen. Kirby did, without the rank, recognition or the choice of duty. But there is no statue in Statuary Hall for him. He could have been a contender. Following emancipation, Alexander had a distinguished career as JacksonvilleÂs first black physician. So, thanks to the legislature, and those who advocated the removal of Gen. KirbyÂs statue, the public now has the opportunity to make nominations of a Floridian we can all celebrate. Nominees must be native Floridians or at least 10 years a resident, worthy of the exceptional honor and have spent a decade or more moldering in the grave. For details and to submit online nominations, click on the Florida Department of State website dos.myflorida.com/ or mail nominations to the Florida Division of Historical Resources. And, sorry, you wild things, but no recommendations of fictional super heroes, animals, plants, structures, nonhuman entities or aliens from another planet will be considered. There is one caveat: The state Legisla-ture gets to choose the finalist among all those nominated. Uh-oh, that. Q Â„ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

The Trump-Sanders two-stepThe upshot of the Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump phenomena is that both parties are moving to the left. SandersÂ and TrumpÂs styles and affects are very different Â„ the rumpled, oddball lecturer in Socialism 101 vs. the boastful, power-tie-wearing business mogul Â„ but they have worked in tan-dem to ensure that the center of gravity in this fallÂs presidential election will be further to the left than it has been in decades. By seizing the initiative in their race from the beginning to what looks like an increasingly bitter end, Bernie Sanders has made Hillary Clinton, the cautious inheritor of a family political legacy built on centrism, into the mouthpiece of a watered-down version of his left-wing populism. No matter how much Bernie Sanders hates the banks, Hillary Clinton despis-es them just as much (past paydays not-withstanding). In effect, Sanders and Trump have executed a squeeze play on Madam Sec-retary. Sanders pushed her to the left on trade and Social Security in the primary, when she disavowed the Trans-Pacific Partnership that she helped negotiate and embraced increasing Social Securi-ty benefits. She probably wonÂt be snap-ping back to the center on those issues in a general election because it would open her up to Sanders-like attacks from Donald Trump. If the grass-roots movement that Sanders has built will pressure Demo-crats all the way to the Philadelphia con-vention and beyond, Trump has argu-ably done more to pull the countryÂs politics portside. He has, for now, man-aged to do what the Democrats and the media have been attempting for most of the Obama era: to kill off the Tea Party as a national force. By dividing it, eclipsing it and making its animating concerns of limited govern-ment and constitutionalism into after-thoughts, Trump has neutered a here-tofore potent vehicle against Big Gov-ernment. With or without Sanders, the Democrats were going to drift in a more progressive direction. It was far from inevitable, though, that the Republican Party would de-emphasize its opposition to growth in the size of government. That is entirely the doing of Trump. The irony is that an era of Republican politics characterized by insistence on doctrinal purity and anger at Beltway dealmaking is ending with Trump at the helm of the GOP. ItÂs a little like the agitation of the French Revolution, all aimed at achieving more liberte, egalite, fraternite, concluding in the rule of Napoleon Bonaparte. However ideologically indistinct Trump was during the primaries, he has gotten fuzzier since becoming the pre-sumptive nominee. The lazy line on Don-ald Trump is that heÂs a far-right populist. Not at all. HeÂs a centrist populist. The key to moving the GOP to the center wasnÂt high-minded scolding about its tone and unreasonableness, as Jon Huntsman, John Kasich and Jeb Bush all attempted, but an extremely combative tone and a few signature unreasonable positions. Once Trump established his reputation as a bomb-thrower, it didnÂt matter that he was to the left of everyone else in the field. Between Sanders moving Clinton further from the center and Trump moving the GOP toward it, the socialist and the mogul have forced American politics to take a collective step to the left. Q Â„ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.Invocation to a graduateMy dear J,Let me become, only for this moment, more than just a rounded and eternally grinning uncle, bald and mild and safe, communing with you at family parties by sharing a polite hug and little else but the affected murmurs of affirmation. Let me become, instead, an invocator.You will have other invocators who stand before you in funny hats and gowns at your graduation, and they will say the things that should be said to you. I will not. Since I know who you are, I also know that you can take it Â„ bad advice. Or put another way, advice to be bad. To journey to bad places, to do bad things. This is what the best people do, and I consider you one of the best. DonÂt say you havenÂt been told, because IÂm telling you here: Be bad. I remember the first time I saw your magnificent potential to be bad, and took hope. You threw a wild tantrum at your auntÂs 40th birthday celebration in front of grandparents, parents, aunts, uncles, cousins and various upstanding members of the community. You exploded. Your resistance to the status quo was so fierce and prolonged that you had to be carted away home by a grim and long-suffering law enforcement officer, otherwise known as a parent, caterwauling all the way like an enraged feline. Many wondered that day if you needed therapy or a drug regimen. In that instance, you demonstrated beyond a credible doubt your extraordinary potential to avoid being sucked into the maw of mere convention: of Sunday-go-to-church niceties, of country-club manners, of sugar and spice and everything nice, of the banal and pedestrian willingness to spend life at a shopping mall and define success as (first) never truly standing out, and (second), being merely comfortable.Comfort is the enemy, J, always. Especially if itÂs the ultimate goal. The stron-gest cultural current you face in this river of American life will push you cease-lessly toward the vacuous depths of mere comfort, where many drown.The same is true of mere etiquette. In itself, itÂs an enemy draped around you without thought, like a flirty garment from Charlotte Russe, one that everybody else wears, too, or would if they could. ThatÂs why, at your auntÂs recent 50th birthday soiree, I was hoping desperately that you would repeat your performance at her 40th. I wanted an encore of sorts from you, this time as an 18-year-old. You didnÂt offer one, sadly, because no one gave you the chance. But I noticed something promising: your potential to be bad is alive and well. I heard a parent say to you, ÂI really donÂt want you to go into forensics.ÂŽ Once, she might have issued an imperative: ÂYou Will Not Go Into Forensics.ÂŽEven so Â„ even with that wiggle room you have now established for yourself in almost everything from clothes to boys to careers Â„ you wrinkled your nose dangerously.Then somehow, without so much as moving an eyebrow or even frowning, you rearranged your face to suggest that a nuclear explosion in the 100-megaton range was not entirely out of the question. That may be the Sicilian in you, from your motherÂs side Â„ although you have fire (and l ove, w hich is often not comfortable, by the way) in you from both sides, thank God. I donÂt care what side it comes from, however. I donÂt care what corner of the genetic map, or what direction on the com-pass it represents. Let me encourage and this fiery potential in you to be bad. Other people, after all, may not face up to blood, which they see as bad (so they donÂt have to, do they?). Other people may not seek justice by analyzing the evidence of tyranny and injustice Â„ by analyzing brutalized ana-tomical matter, or microscopic detritus, or the characteristics of spent bullets or bomb fragments or any other trappings of crime. Other people may not be able to deal with the dark side, in other words. ItÂs not a comfortable place. ItÂs a very bad place, and bad places are uncomfortable. But you are not other people. You arenÂt afraid of engaging the bad, although I donÂt think you underestimate it. (Please donÂt.) In the society that you now own as an adult American, and in the life that is now wholly and solely yours as a single woman, many other things are also con-sidered bad by many people, especially middle-aged adults. ItÂs bad not to always have a plan. ItÂs bad not to always appear perfectly coiffed and made up (especially for a woman. Why is that?) ItÂs bad to get dirty, to sweat, to define success as something more than monetary, to love somebody who isnÂt com-fortably appointed in ambition, upbringing, religion, color, culture, career, income or family status. ItÂs bad to show too much tolerance or compassion for those who are stupid or poor or make the wrong choices. ThatÂs considered a knock-kneed, flower-waving weakness, and itÂs bad. ItÂs bad to talk about politics or religion at the dinner table, or to be rude on occa-sion when circumstances merit it, or to break with the rules or customs of sorori-ties or fraternities of any kind Â„ formal or informal Â„ because you think that what theyÂre doing stinks, and they think you stink for thinking it. ItÂs bad to take risks, and the naysayers are right about one thing: doing so is not only uncomfortable, but dangerous. Steve Irwin, the wildlife expert and environmen-talist you admired as a young teenager, was bad to the bone and it got him killed. But so what? Should he have become an accountant or a strip mall developer or a bean counter? You know what IÂm going to tell you, in the end Â„ but not at your graduation party, where I will smile benignly and practice good etiquette. Be bad, J, always. Be very bad.And l ove, R.

Touchstone. 352 pages. Hardcover, $24.99.If youÂve never been to The Hollows Â„ the Upstate New York community that passes for normal while hiding its truly haunted nature Â„ then youÂre in for a big surprise with the newest offering from Lisa Unger. Restless spirits fester in The Hollows. They cry out for rec-ognition. They have stories to share. In time of trouble, resi-dents and visitors may sense that thereÂs something strange going on, some kind of invisible force. There seem to be voices, sometimes cries, in the wind. There are people who are sensitive to the spirit world, whether they wish to be or not. These same people have psychic powers that grant them glimpses of the future and/or of the hidden past. They are called upon by the spirits. Eloise Montgomery has lived among the haunted, and among the rest of us, for her whole life: ÂEloise told her (granddaugh-ter Finley) long ago that a haunting was a relationship, that the dead clung to the living only as much as the living clung to the dead.ÂŽ Finley Montgomery, a 20-year-old student at the local Sacred Heart College, also has this power, and sometimes the spirit voices and her strange dreams over-whelm her. Only Eloise is able to help her Â„ and she will need all the help she can get to avoid being pulled under by what she must confront. There is a long history of children who have gone missing in The Hollow. For almost a year, Merri Gleason has tried to find her daughter, Abbey. She feels that if Abbey is not already dead, she soon will be if sheÂs not found. So Merri contacts Jones Cooper, a former police officer now work-ing as a private detective. Though Jones is a down-to-earth guy, a man of facts, he is open to the paranormal. On the right kind of case he will consult with Eloise. Finding Abbey is one such case. ItÂs a case that canÂt help but suck fiercely tattooed Finley into it, much to her peril. Ms. Unger orchestrates her gripping, eerie novel so that readers alternate among several plot strands, trying to guess if and how they will come together. Tracking down Abbey is one strand. Witnessing the imprisonment and attempted escapes of a young girl called Penny is another. Read-ers are teased with the idea that Penny might not be this girlÂs actual name by the introduction of another girl referred to as Real Penny. Perhaps the one we meet is a replacement for one who fled or died. And perhaps there are others who have also been called Penny. The one we meet, and the original one, both seem to have psychic powers as well. Like Finley and Eloise, they see and hear what others cannot. They discover things that are meant to be kept secret. The grotesque Crawley family that has captured these young girls, about which the author draws a ghastly family portrait, can-not let certain truths come out. We wonder if Merri daughter Abbey has turned into a Penny. Portraying people who are under enormous, threatening stress is this authorÂs game Â„ or at least one of her games. Her brilliantly suggestive and graceful prose allows us to share and somehow be mag-netized by her charactersÂ fear and des-peration. Even those with unusual powers, like Finley, can be ravaged by emotional turmoil. Because they are called to hear and respond to the almost-stifled voices of the dead, they must stretch their courage to the breaking point. Of course there are deadly secrets that must be discovered, even after they have done their damage. ÂInk and BoneÂŽ holds tantalizing insights about how identities are formed and the role of family dynamics in that formation. Then thereÂs environment. DonÂt raise your children in The Hollows. The place literally has a mind of its own. About the author The suspense never subsides in Ms. UngerÂs psychological thrillers; it keeps mounting stronger and stronger, as does her already immense talent. She lives in Clearwater with her husband and daughter. Her novels have sold more than 2 million copies and have been translated into 26 lan-guages. Find out more at lisaunger.com.

When formulating a hurricane plan, make sure it includes all members of the family, including pets. After so many animals were abandoned following Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and Hurricane Charley in Southwest Florida, disaster prepared-ness officials have stepped up measures to help pets and to encourage owners to plan ahead in case a hurricane strikes. Charlotte, Collier, Lee and Palm Beach counties all have emergency shelters for people and their pets, although space Â„ and therefore, access Â„ is largely restricted to those in spots where evac-uation is mandatory. Most counties offer just one shelter to take in pets, so itÂs important that pet owners check early and get on a reser-vation list if that is required. If people find they need to go to a county-run pet shelter, they will be required to stay as well and will need to care for their pets throughout the stay. Animals must be current on immuniza-tions and have sufficient food, water and an approved crate. The best option is for people to leave the area and take their pets with them. DonÂt expect local veterinarians or boarding kennels to accept animals. They will fall under the same guidelines and conditions as residents. And, should a hurricane strike, they are likely to be without power as well. To prepare their pets for hurricane season, owners should attend to the fol-lowing: Q Vaccinations: Make sure pets are current on these now. It takes a couple of weeks for most immunizations to become protective so itÂs too late once a storm approaches. Q Identification : Put petsÂ county licensing tags on their collars, as well as an ID tag with your phone number. Make sure your address and phone number is current on ID tags. A microchip ID (available through most veterinarians as well as Animal Services), is highly recommended because collars can be lost during storms but the chip will remain implanted and owners can update the company as to their whereabouts. Q Hurricane kit: Gather up pet supplies. (See accompanying segment) Q Medications: Make sure you keep a few weeksÂ worth on hand so you wonÂt have to rush to refill them at the last minute. Q Destination: Secure a place to stay.Pet hurricane kitQ Leash and secure collar Q Pet food (in waterproof containers), enough for at least one week Q Water for one week Q Manual can opener Q Bowls for food and water Q Impact-resistant crate of sufficient size (no soft-sided or homemade models and one for each pet) Q Bedding (blanket or towels) Q Litter, litter box and scoop for cats Q PetÂs regular medications Q Toys, chewies and other stress relieversQ County license and other identification (microchip IDs are encouraged)Q Proof of vaccinations Q Photo of pet Q Pet first-aid kit Q Grooming items WebsitesQ Pbcgov.com/publicsafety/animalcare/hurricane.htm: For Palm Beach County information.

Agencies and organizations offer emergency help Hindsight is always a dishonest voice for the present. Storms on the east coast have been few since Hurricane Wilma during the 2005 season, though Hur-ricane Sandy caused damage along area shores in 2012. But no one wants to walk down the street and see fallen trees and power lines scattered along the road, and wonder what to do next. Yet, this scenario is a reality we should prepare for during every hurricane season. Floridians know from experience that neighbors, churches and local businesses come together in unprecedented ways to help with recovery efforts. Neverthe-less, weÂve compiled some of the con-tact information for the ÂbigÂŽ organiza-tions that can serve as a starting place for either volunteerism or for your own recovery once the weather system has passed. From reporting downed power lines to whom to call about clean water, canned food and local shelters, these accredited contacts will help with your questions and needs.

Wind and rain Every year since 1953, the National Hurricane Center has generated an alphabetical list of names for the sea-sonÂs tropical storms and hurricanes. At first, the lists consisted of only female names; since 1979, the names alternate between male and female. There are six lists that continue to rotate, changing only when there is a hurricane so dev-astating that its name is retired. These names have been retired2001 Allison2001 Iris2001 Michelle2002 Isidore2002 Lili2003 Fabian2003 Isabel2003 Juan 2004 Charley2004 Frances2004 Ivan2004 Jeanne2005 Dennis2005 Katrina2005 Rita2005 Stan 2005 Wilma2007 Dean2007 Felix2007 Noel2008 Gustav2008 Ike2008 Paloma2010 Igor 2010 Tomas2011 Irene2012 Sandy2013 Ingrid2015 Erika2015 Joaquin AlexBonnieColinDanielleEarlFionaGaston HermineIanJuliaKarlLisaMatthewNicole OttoPaulaRichardSharyTobiasVirginieWalter2016 Storm Names BridgesTravel across the areaÂ’s bridges becomes unsafe once winds reach gale force, or in excess of 34 mph. Even if physical barricades are not present, drivers should exercise common sense when pre-storm travels involve crossing bridges. Evacuation orders for Southwest FloridaÂ’s barrier islands will be issued well in advance of a storm, and those affected should promptly heed such orders, before travel across bridges becomes unsafe and roads are closed off.

Its April prediction for 2016 found that we are facing an historically Ânear averageÂŽ year for storm activity in the Atlantic Ocean. That includes the formation of 12 named storms Â„ five of them hur-ricanes, and two of those major ones (Category 3-4-5). (CSU was scheduled to issue updated forecasts on June 1, July 1 and Aug. 3.) There is a 30 per-cent chance that one of the big ones will strike the Florida peninsula and a 50 percent chance one will hit the U.S. coastline somewhere. FloridaÂs lucky streak does little to statistically increase or decrease the chance the state will see a major storm this year. Still, it is the longest quiet period in recorded history, with records going back to 1851, said Den-nis Feltgen, a meteorologist with the National Hurricane Center in Miami. The stateÂs second longest dry spell was five years, 1980 to 1984. ÂThis remarkable streak is going to end,ÂŽ Mr. Feltgen said. ÂThe farther we get from the last hurricane, the closer we get to the next one.ÂŽ Predicting the weather, especially months in advance, is a dubious under-taking with an existential dilemma at its heart: an oceanic-atmospheric sys-tem with complexities that Âno one can completely understand,ÂŽ Mr. Klotzbach points out in his report. ÂBut,ÂŽ he adds, Âit is still possible to develop a reliable statistical forecast scheme.ÂŽ CSUÂs models study how the past could reflect the future; how ocean currents such as El Nio affect storm activity each year as well as over decades long trends. The model has correctly predicted by early April above or below average seasons 79 percent of the time over more than three decades. No matter the forecast, Mr. Klotzbach points out, ÂCoastal residents are reminded that it only takes one hur-ricane making landfall to make it an active season for them, and they need to prepare the same for every season, regardless of how much activity is predicted.ÂŽ This year, a weakening El Nio Â„ a warm Pacific Ocean current that is now starting to cool Â„ could increase storm activity while colder waters in the Atlantic Ocean could, on the other hand, slow it. The balance of these and other factors and their comparison to past years suggests an average season. ÂThe big question marks with this seasonÂs predictions are how quickly the El Nio weakens, as well as what the configuration of sea surface tem-peratures will look like in the tropical and far North Atlantic Ocean during the peak of the Atlantic hurricane sea-son,ÂŽ Mr. Klotzbach wrote. While the season lasts from June 1 to Nov. 30, August through October are the busiest months for producing storms. Q PREPAREFrom page 1Â“This remarkable streak is going to end ...

Clean H2OThere is no escaping the fact that clean water is a must. And since sys-tems for delivering clean water can be affected during a storm, itÂs essential to have some kind of means to clean and filter water or have a robust supply on hand. There are numerous filtering systems available to make potable drinking water out of existing sources such as pools, sinks and bathtubs. But we found a cool product that allows one to keep an inventory of boxed water. Legacy Long Term Emergency Water Supply Boxes with Fill Hose and Treatment Kit helps maintain your familyÂs water supply. The kit comes with five-gallon Mylar bags with spigot, Aquamira water treatment and stackable, heavy-duty boxes that are ideal for storing. The treated water is drinkable for five years. The kit is available at buyemergency-foods.com. Cost is $68.Crank it upBeing in the know during and after a hurricane is vital to staying safe and maintaining order and calm. But since fierce storms tend to knock out elec-tricity, having a communication device that works from another source is nec-essary. Hand-crank radios are ideal for times when no source of electricity is available. The Eton FRX5 is considered top shelf for its ease of use, reception and volume in its speaker, according to Crank Radio Review, an online pub-lication. The Red Cross endorses the Eton FRX series because it has many features to help in an emergency. The radio comes with seven NOAA weather stations and SAME alerts, which pro-vides specific alerts to the county you live in. Aside from cranking power, the Eton FRX5 can be powered via an AC adapter, USB port, batteries or the sun. For sale on a variety of websites, includ-ing Amazon. For more information, see etoncorp.com/en/productdisplay/frx5 Cost is $79.99 and up.Get wiredThe storm that you monitored on your smart phone or tablet for the last two weeks just blew through your neigh-borhood leaving you without power. But you are prepared; you have extra batter-ies and chargers to stay hooked up while the electricity remains out. But did you remember to get a rugged cable to use for hooking everything up? Tylt has durable, bright-hued cables and connec-tors to use for camping and emergency situations. The Syncable comes in a variety of colors. For more information, see tylt.com/syncable-duo/. The cost is up to $30.Light upStaying out of the dark during and after a storm is a necessary safety mea-sure. There are numerous battery and solar operated flashlights and portable lanterns on the market but we chose the Bracketron Smart Lantern as a must-have for your hurricane supply kit. The portable light features a rechargeable, compact high-output LED lantern and flashlight. The device has a built-in 2.1A USB port to charge mobile devic-es, including smart phones and tablets. For more information, see bracketon.com/smartlantern#.VONE9zd2Psw The cost is $59.99.Generate powerMaintaining power and the functions of daily life helps smooth out the rough spots of dealing with the aftermath of a damaging storm. Having a generator that is powerful enough to keep your fridge, lights and other elec-tronic necessities functioning Â„ while also being affordable and user friendly Â„ is key. The Champion Power Equip-ment 46539, 3500 Running Watts Gas Powered Portable Generator comes with wheels and a handle and a bat-tery remote starter that works inside the home Â„ up to 80 feet away. For more information, see bestreviews.com/best-portable-generators. It can be found for sale on Amazon.Prices average $400.Disposable grillJust because the power is out doesnÂt mean you have to limit your diet to eating out of a can. EZ Grill dispos-able grills are an all-in-one disposable BBQ in a box. The kit includes a foil pan, stand, grill gate and 100 percent natural instant charcoal. The EZ Grill is composed of all natural ingredients and completely recyclable. The EZ Grill, available in regular size (1.81 pounds) and party size (3.31 pounds) for $5 and $10, lights with just one match and consistently cooks for up to 1 hours post ignition. For more information, see gizmag.com/portable-disposable-all-in-one-ez-grill/12214/.Protect your devicesDuring and after a storm, smart phones are essential to staying in touch with family, friends and emergency per-sonnel if needed. So keeping your communication devices dry and safe is a must. Dry-CASE features a waterproof vacuum seal while still allowing you to use your touch screen, make calls and use the camera. DryCASE for tablets also is available. For more information, see drycase.com/product/DC-13.html. Cost for the smart phone DryCASE is $39.99.Be in the knowThere are several high quality apps available for use on your Apple IOS or Android smart phones and devices.

A10 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 2-8, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYthem were feeding on snook and many other species, made his heart ache, he admits. ItÂs an ache, a longing for what was and what should be again, that isnÂt new for the 83-year-old Mr. Reed, a founder and chairman emeri-tus of 1000 Friends of Florida. A former assistant secretary of the Interior under Presidents Nixon and then Ford Â„ a man who has served six Florida governors and sat on the boards of such august outfits or agencies as the National Geographic Society and Yellowstone National Park Â„ Mr. Reed had just come back from a 1000 Friends meeting in Key West to prepare for a fishing trip to the Bahamas. His work in the world isnÂt done, he insists, in part because 18 months ago Florida voters sought to give offi-cials the most powerful tool theyÂve ever wielded in an effort to resist the destruction of lands and waters in the state, only to have it misused by state legislators, in his view. The tool is called Amendment 1 to the Florida constitution. About 75 per-cent of voters approved it Â„ 4 million men and women in the voting booth. Its relatively simple language requires a third of the tax money collected from the documentary stamps that come with every real estate sale in Florida between 2015 and 2035 to be set aside and used to buy land and help save water now being polluted and degraded so much that it threatens the future of the state. That will amount to some $700 million to $900 million or more each year in what is now a booming real estate economy attracting hordes of new resi-dents and businesses to Florida. It gives legislators and resource managers a chance to plan, a chance to do the hard bargaining and purchasing of lands throughout the state that are cru-cial to cleanup and restoration. But many of them have no intention of doing that now, says Mr. Reed. At the 1000 Friends meeting, Âwe talked about what the hell do we do after Gov. Scott and certain members of the Legislature are retired. ÂThe overwhelming sentiment shown by Amendment 1 voters has to be transplanted into acts at the local level to protect our land and water. This has to be a citizensÂ movement. WeÂve given up on government right now, because anti-government feeling toward the governor and his appoin-tees, right down to the water manage-ment districts, is crushing any kind of sensible decision making on new plans blooming all over Florida.ÂŽThe devil and the detailsAlthough the language of Amendment 1 orders that the monies not be used for other purposes, only about a third of more than $650 million col-lected this year has been channeled directly into land purchases and water conservation projects defined as strictly Amendment 1 uses. And in the first year of the program, legislators put only about $17.5 million of what could have been more than $200 million into land acquisition Â„ through a program called Florida Forever Land Acquisition Â„ and managed to rein-terpret how Amendment 1 should be understood, their critics say. But many legislators view such criticisms as unjustified. ÂI think how we spent the money is completely consistent with the inten-tion of Amendment 1,ÂŽ says Rep. Matt Caldwell, a District 79 Republican. ÂThe amendment says the trust fund is created to acquire, store, man-age and improve conservation lands Â„ itÂs a four-tier purpose. ÂAcquireÂ is only one of four verbs. So I feel com-fortable I have met my constitutional duties toward that amendment.ÂŽ ThereÂs a lot more involved in solving the problem than simply buying land, he argues Â„ and leaving significant portions of that land in private hands has benefits both to agriculture and to conservation. ÂItÂs so easy to say, Âwe want Florida Forever, itÂs land acquisition and that program used to get $300 million,Â Rep. Caldwell explains. ÂBut the problem is, Florida Forever used to be all bonded Â„ borrowed Â„ money. ThatÂs the $175 million weÂre paying on the debt for the existing bond. I put that expense in the land category (of Amendment 1) because itÂs paying for land we already bought.ÂŽ Not only that, he adds, but as much as 70 percent of state lands may be in gov-ernment hands Â„ federal, state or local, he estimates. And thatÂs enough. ÂSo the rural and family land program, in which ranchers on their property can buy development rights Â„ thatÂs a prototype of where the legislature is moving,ÂŽ he says. ÂKeeping farmers on their land is a major part of the success weÂve had in recent years. The money goes farther.ÂŽ Those arguments donÂt make it with critics who say those old purchases already were planned for, and voters clearly saw Amendment 1 as a way to get new land essential to cleaning water. ÂBecause weÂre now using Amendment 1 money to fund existing programs that we previously funded through the general revenue, we donÂt have these funds available to pay for outstanding programs urgently needed, like buying lands in the Ever-glades Agricultur-al Area (south of Lake Okeechobee), which is imperative for restoring the Everglades,ÂŽ says Jennifer Hecker, director of Natural Resource Policy for the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. And as for leaving key lands in private hands, ÂitÂs a slippery slope,ÂŽ she warns. ÂThe permanent solution is to purchase those lands because you canÂt live without their storage and (filtering) capacity. ItÂs very dangerous to try to privatize clean-up.ÂŽ Critics liken that approach to the fox guarding the hen house, while acknowl-edging that many landowners do deeply care about the environment. But they have cared in the past, too, and still sold crucial lands to developers. Several environmental groups, therefore, have sued the legislature to force it to use Amendment 1 monies properly, as they see it.The ongoing battleOn Thursday last week, lawyers defending legislators in an ongoing law-suit aimed at forcing them to put at least $222 million from the revenue of this single year into land acquisition denied each claim of the environmental groups challenging them. David Guest, the managing attorney for Earthjustice Florida, one of the plaintiffs in the suit, said that in spite of some improvement in the coming yearÂs spending pattern, when legis-lators will increase Amendment 1 mon-ies aimed at land purchases, Âmore than half of the money available will be spent on accounting gim-micks, instead. You thought, we thought, I thought we were buying land and restoring things. Instead we got air-conditioned buildings full of state employees that already had jobs Â„ thatÂs what weÂre paying for.ÂŽ Land that could help clean the water isnÂt being purchased by the state because many legislators simply donÂt like the idea, says Ms. Hecker. ÂItÂs no secret that the legislature wasnÂt supportive of Amendment 1 from the onset,ÂŽ she explains. ÂSo weÂre still struggling with a lack of political will to implement the amendment in a manner consistent with votersÂ wishes, mainly in regards to land conservation. ÂWe have to have dedicated funds to do that. The idea of dedicated funds is that you need to plan in advance for multi-year efforts. If you donÂt know how much funding you will have avail-able, you canÂt plan anything.ÂŽAMENDFrom page 1 Evergladeswaterflow Historic flow Present flowGulf of Mexico Atlantic Ocean Atlantic Ocean Gulf of Mexico Lake Okeechobee Lake Okeechobee Caloosahatchee River Caloosahatchee River Florida Ba y Biscayne Bay Biscayne Bay Florida Bay Kissimmee River Kissimmee River FLORIDA FLORIDA WetlandsCanals WaterÂ”ow In 1948 the Central and Southern Florida Project was authorized to provide flood protection and fresh water to South Florida.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 2-8, 2016 NEWS A11In this election year, when astonishment has turned to amazement, and the most seasoned candidates are anything but a sure thing, Hillary ClintonÂ’s marriage and Donald TrumpÂ’s divorce(s) have become fair game for political commentary. Critics of the Democratic front-runner cite her willingness to remain with former President, Bill Clinton, during and after the public melee regarding his affair with Monica Lewinsky as a sign that she enabled her husbandÂ’s predatory behavior. Critics of the Republican front-runner claim his current rhetoric regarding ugly women and female reporters, coupled with damaging comments made during his prior two divorces, as evidence of a hard-core misogynist. Is marriage and divorce really this political? Simply put; yes. Although many relationships are not subject to the high scrutiny of public office, there is some level of scrutiny that takes place in every relationship. As I have previously written, seemingly innocuous comments or decisions in a marriage may become time bombs in a divorce. All communication between parties prior to, during, and after a divorce must be filtered. Even casual conversations are used as materiel by skilled attorneys to advance their clientÂ’s cause. Further, a partyÂ’s physical appearance is as critical as the representations made in court. Non-verbal communication telegraphs whether a party is truthful, afraid, lying, or belligerent. Slovenly dress, inarticulate answers, or worse, arguing with the judge may tilt the courtÂ’s decision in another partyÂ’s favor. These factors are weighed by every judge in reaching a conclusion, therefore, it is imperative for a party to maintain a respectful and solemn demeanor at all times. It is even more critical in cases involving minor children. Sensitizing a client to the perceptions of others is the art of politics in divorce. At Hudson Family Law, we work with our clients to appreciate the legal and political aspects of their divorce, create a plan to reach their attainable goals, and strive to restore the future.Our mission statement is: RESOLVE, REBUILD, RESTORE.

Hudson, Hudson Family Law THE POLITICS OF DIVORCE If distribution were equitable (one analystÂ’s view of one region): Â“Southwest Florida as a whole has about 10 percent of the stateÂ’s population, and area, also. Â“So, if the $750 million per year in estimated money generated by the funding source (Amendment 1Â’s cut of the real estate stamp taxes) was applied equally statewide, then Southwest Florida would get about $75 million, or about double the funds for Conservation 20-20 (a county program to buy undeveloped land) at its peak, applied over an area about seven times larger ... annually. For 20 years. Â“Since we are impacted by Lake Okeechobee, land programs in the Kissimmee and Everglades basins would bene t us Â— and perhaps be partially tolled against us. All that is if distribu-tion was equitable.Â”Â— Wayne Daltry, a planner and former head of Smart Growth One of the keys in saving Florida water is land, and especially the purchase of land south of Lake Okeechobee where corporate sugar growers now dominate agricultural produc-tion, says State Rep. Heather Fitzenha-gen, a District 78 Republican. It is not a widely popular opinion among Republican members of the stateÂs House and Senate. ÂThere are differing views in how we solve our problems,ÂŽ she notes, encour-aging compromise, Âand I donÂt think the state needs to open (for possible purchase) everything that is private property that might have some value to environmental preservation. ÂBut I do think we need to identify those lands that have the most value for preservation, and that have the most risk of being used for other purposes than conservation.ÂŽ Part of the solution must be to purchase key lands south of Lake Okeechobee, she says, where water originating near Orlando once flowed southward, filtering and cleaning itself naturally before reaching Florida Bay. Now, the 700,000-acre Everglades Agricultural Area dominated by sugar growers stands in the way. ÂI respect the agricultural interests south of the lake,ÂŽ says Rep. Fitzenha-gen. ÂBut because they have benefitted from certain government programs that allow them to maintain their businesses at a high level of profitability, perhaps they could see their way to give back Â„ a little quid pro quo.ÂŽ By Âgive back,ÂŽ she means sell their land to the state so it can be restored as a natural flow-way. Government programs include the huge system of canals, pumps and water managers funded by taxpayers to allow crops to be grown in the Everglades Agricultural Area. But legislators have found ways to divert money away from land acqui-sitions in large part, the critics say: TheyÂre paying for older land purchases and programs already established on which debt remains; theyÂre paying for maintenance of equipment and current water systems as well as salaries of man-agers; theyÂre paying private landowners not to develop their land Â„ at least not now while theyÂre being paid not to; and theyÂre even paying to help Gov. Rick Scott satisfy his $700,000 penalty in a lawsuit for violating public records law, as Miami Herald columnist Carl Hiaasen pointed out last August. The governor took $445,000 out of the Department of Environmental Pro-tection monies to help pay the fine. ÂItÂs another kick in the teeth for the 4 million Floridians who voted for Amendment 1, believing DEP would use newly designated revenues for the purchase and protection of conserva-tion lands,ÂŽ Mr. Hiaasen wrote. ÂNobody dreamed that the governor Â„ even this governor Â„ would loot DEP to pay his own legal bills.ÂŽ As for using Amendment 1 money to support the salaries of land mangers, ÂLand management was already built into agency budgets in no small amount, but dollars approved for (land) pur-chase went for that,ÂŽ points out Wayne Daltry, a planner, former Smart Growth director and environmental leader on the Southwest coast. Meanwhile, environmental conditions are rapidly declining, as last winterÂs devastating algal blooms and dirty water both east and west of Lake Okeechobee attest. ÂGod, a million fish. How shock-ing,ÂŽ Mr. Reed exclaims, describ-ing the estimated fish kill alone. ÂThe reason people live on the Indian River is for the light and color and the sunsets in the evening on those islands in one of the most beau-tiful lagoons in the world. ItÂs a world treasure, but now stuff is coming out of Okeechobee and going right down the Caloosahatchee or (the St. Lucie).ÂŽ In addition to beauty and aesthetics, there is also the issue of survival, says John Cassani, chairman of the South-west Florida Watershed Council. ÂWhat the legislature is doing is not enough fast enough. WeÂre about to experience another major population boom. Add climate change effects to that, and there isnÂt a lot of time to delay what needs to be done.ÂŽ For Rep. Fitzenhagen, ÂWater is the most valuable resource in the world. Everywhere. Across the globe. If we here donÂt get on board and understand this, and manage it properly,ÂŽ the conse-quences are likely to be dire. Rep. Caldwell agrees with her, he says, but the issues of implementation will have to be worked out. For Mr. Reed, the half-century champion of a cleaner Florida and a cleaner nation, Amendment 1 remains a chance to correct some significant mistakes of the past. ÂWeÂre being overrun by development,ÂŽ he says. ÂBut by using Amend-ment 1 we can buy in. We can create big green zones, little green ones, green zones around cities to protect unique habitat. There are plenty of them that need to be created.ÂŽ And in creating them, perhaps, we create our future, he insists, echoing the sentiments of many, who acknowledge that development will continue.

A16 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 2-8, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELThe new Chevy Cruze: A bit of first class in the bargain basementIs stability the new sexy? Probably not. But when it comes to cars, we all look to get value for our hard-earned dollars Â„ which is why the practical side of us is rooting for the affordable Chevrolet Cruze. The redesign for 2016 has nicer sheet metal to allow our hearts to follow our heads. Revamping the Cruze is more important and complex than it might first seem. Small cars are still a big busi-ness for automakers. This sedan has a much narrower profit margin than a large SUV, but General Motors is quite happy to sell as many Cruzes as pos-sible. It shares its platform and many components with the more expensive Volt. Economies of scale mean that the more affordable sedans Chevy can sell, the less expensive it is for them to make the more boutique-style plug-in hybrid. How is that good for the Cruze driver? Chevrolet needs all the customers it can possibly get, which is an incentive to engineer the most attractive compact sedan possible. The right design has to walk a narrow line, however: If it looks too dar-ing, it can turn off mainstream buyers, but something too mundane will only have rental fleets buying it. Chevrolet appears to have kept that in mind and borrowed many of the design cues that made the redesigned Impala a success. So, the new Cruze has a more aggressive face than its predecessor, but it still has a familiarity that will attract the masses. While vanity is important in small cars, it truly is whatÂs on the inside that counts. A good mix of practicality and value for money is what usually sells a car in this class, and Chevrolet was pay-ing attention once again. The Cruze has more room in the back than either of its two domestic competitors, the Ford Focus and the Dodge Dart. The front buckets are built wide enough so mom and dad will be comfortable even on longer trips. Standard equipment includes features that were once big options but are now industry-wide staples, such as air conditioning and power windows. But what really sets the Cruze apart is the standard 7-inch touchscreen thatÂs used for everything from a rear view camera to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Having this technology built-in gives even the base model a premium feeling. In fact, since Chevy is giving a taste of first class to the bargain basement, the Cruze is most attractive when itÂs at its cheapest. There are plenty of option boxes to check that will make it a $30K car, but thatÂs not the way to go. The base L model can be had out the door for $17,495, while an automatic transmis-sion LS with a few added comforts is $19,995. All this is before any discounts or rebates, so the target price for Cruze buyers should be well under $20K. Chevrolet might really want to sell you plenty of options, because we already know they donÂt rake in SUV-sized cash from this small sedan. But consumers should keep in mind that the best fit is often at the lower end Â„ especially since purchasing the upper echelons of the Cruze doesnÂt buy more power. The whole lineup currently has the same 1.4-liter turbocharged engine. DonÂt get too carried away about the idea of a turbo motor under the hood, though. ItÂs been given the EcoTec name for a reason. It will utilize its low displacement for long highway trips, but when it comes time to pass, the turbocharger is there to make sure the whole experience isnÂt anemic. ItÂs far from exciting, but the motor delivers 30/40 mpg city/highway or better with either the six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. The 2016 Chevrolet Cruze is one of the most thoughtful vehicles in its class. Neither a substitute for an aging sports car nor a BMW in disguise, this reason-able sedan has an attractive appear-ance, practical interior and a few nice upgrades as standard. Chevy thought about you when recreating its family economy car, and that makes the Cruze worth your consideration.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 2-8, 2016 NEWS A17 HEALTHY LIVINGLooking ahead, researchers predict vision impairment numbers to double NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHWith the youngest of the Baby Boomers hitting 65 by 2029, the number of people with visual impairment or blind-ness in the United States is expected to double to more than 8 million by 2050. The projection is based on the most recent census data and from studies funded by the National Eye Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health. Another 16.4 million Americans are expected to have difficulty seeing due to correctable refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness) or hyperopia (farsightedness) that can be fixed with glasses, contacts or surgery. The researchers, led by Dr. Rohit Varma, director of the University of Southern CaliforniaÂs Roski Eye Insti-tute in Los Angeles, estimate that 1 million Americans were legally blind (20/200 vision or worse) in 2015. Hav-ing 20/200 vision means that for clear vision, you would have to be 20 feet or closer to an object that a person with normal vision could see from 200 feet away. Meanwhile, 3.2 million Americans had visual impairment in 2015 Â„ mean-ing they had 20/40 or worse vision with best possible correction. Another 8.2 million had vision problems due to uncorrected refractive error. ÂThese findings are an important forewarning of the magnitude of vision loss to come,ÂŽ says Dr. Paul Sieving, director of the NEI. ÂThey suggest that there is a huge opportunity for screen-ing efforts to identify people with cor-rectable vision problems and early signs of eye diseases.ÂŽ Early detection and intervention Â„ possibly as simple as prescribing corrective lenses Â„ could go a long way toward preventing a sig-nificant proportion of avoidable vision loss, he adds. Dr. Varma and his colleagues project that over the next 35 years, the num-ber of people with legal blindness will increase by 21 percent each decade to 2 million by 2050. Likewise, best-corrected visual impairment will grow by 25 percent each decade, doubling to 6.95 million. The greatest burden of visual impairment and blindness will affect those 80 years or older, as advanced age is a key risk factor for diseases such as age-relat-ed macular degeneration and cataract. The study was published May 19 in JAMA Ophthalmology. The researchers analyzed data on visual impairment and blindness from six large studies: the Beaver Dam Eye Study (Beaver Dam, Wis.), Baltimore Eye Survey and Salisbury Eye Evalu-ation Study (Maryland), the Chinese American Eye Study (Monterey Park, Calif.), the Los Angeles Latino Eye Study and Proyecto VER (Nogales and Tucson, Ariz.). They used the 2014 cen-sus and population growth projections to estimate the nationwide prevalence of vision impairment and blindness now and in 2050. In terms of absolute numbers, nonHispanic whites, particularly white women, represent the largest propor-tion of people affected by visual impair-ment and blindness, and their numbers will nearly double. By 2050, 2.15 million non-Hispanic white women are expect-ed to be visually impaired and 610,000 will be blind. ÂBased on these data, there is a need for increased screening and inter-ventions across all populations, and especially among non-Hispanic white women,ÂŽ Dr. Varma says. African-Americans currently account for the second highest proportion of visual impairment, but that is expected to shift to Hispanics around 2040, as the Hispan-ic population Â„ and particularly the number of older Hispanics Â„ continues to grow. Hispanics have particularly high rates of diabetes, which is associated with diabetic eye disease, a treatable cause of visual impairment. African-Americans, meanwhile, are expected to continue to account for the second highest proportion of blindness. African-Americans are at disproportionately high risk for develop-ing glaucoma, a potentially blinding eye disease that typically causes the loss of peripheral, but not central vision, so people tend to not realize that they are losing their vision and do not seek treatment, Dr. Varma says. For more information about how to keep eyes healthy, visit nei.nih.gov/hvm. NEI leads the federal governmentÂs research on the visual system and eye diseases. The institute supports basic and clinical science programs that result in the development of sight-saving treatments and address special needs of people with vision loss. Q gabrielle FINLEY-HAZLE CEO, St. MaryÂs Medical Center Summer vacation has arrived and children soon will be enjoying camp activities, sports, swimming and addi-tional outdoor fun. As a mom, I want to ensure that my children not only enjoy their summer vacation, but that they do so in a safe manner. Additionally, I would like to take this opportunity to remind parents in our community of the importance of sun protection, wearing appropriate sporting gear and staying hydrated dur-ing this time of year. As a dedicated pediatric care center, the Palm Beach ChildrenÂs Hospital offers a wide range of inpatient and outpatient services exclusively for the health-care needs of children. As such, our hospital has been voted as the Best Pediatric Hospital and Best Pediatric ER in Palm Beach County by South Florida Parenting Magazine three years in a row. Although we are proud of these recognitions, our true commit-ment is to helping children lead happier and healthier lives. Whether your child is looking forward to weeks of summer camp with friends, planning bike rides and neigh-borhood fun or enjoying pool days at home, here are some tips weÂd like to share to help create the safest environ-ment possible for an unforgettable sum-mer season: Q Be safe in the water. Drowning is one of the leading causes of injury and death among children, which is why itÂs always important to watch your kids as they swim in a pool, lake or beach. A fence and self-locking gate should be installed around backyard pools to help keep them out when itÂs not in use. Q Always wear a helmet. Approximately 26,000 children go to the ER for bike-related injuries. Children must always wear a properly fitted helmet and the straps should always be fas-tened. Q Watch where children play. More than 200,000 children in the U.S. age 14 and younger visit the ER for play-ground-related injuries. Be sure to keep a close eye on your children as they play. Q Keep children away from heat. To help avoid burns to your childÂs chest, legs and face, donÂt let them play with fireworks and keep them away from the grill, campfires and fire pits. Here are other ways you can help keep your kids safe during the summer: Q Apply sunscreen about 30 minutes before they go outside and then every two hours. Q Allow only one child on a trampoline at a time and make sure the trampo-line has safety walls and coverings over the springs. Q Keep your child hydrated in hot weather. Following these safety tips may help keep your child away from the emer-gency room, allowing more play and family time. If your family does require immediate medical attention, the pediatric emer-gency room at the Palm Beach Chil-drenÂs Hospital is equipped physicians and nurses who are certified in pedi-atric emergency services. Emergency room visits can be intimidating for children, but our dedicated Child Life Specialist works to ease your childÂs nerves by using child-friendly language to explain the treatments he or she is about to undergo and engaging in fun bedside activities during your hospital visit. For more information about the emergency room and pediatric services at the Palm Beach ChildrenÂs Hospital, please visit palmbeachchildrenshospi-tal.com/our-services/emergency.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 2-8, 2016 BUSINESS A19MOVING ON UP As a child growing up in a small town in northwest Missouri, Andrea Bohr excelled at math and really enjoyed problem solving. Those skills have served her well in her 21-year account-ing career. Last October, Ms. Bohr brought her talents to Palm Beach County when she accepted a position as chief financial officer at Wantman Group Inc., a West Palm Beach-based engineering consult-ing firm founded in 1972. ÂAs WGI continues to grow, itÂs important that our financial reporting and analytics are accurately delivered in a timely manner,ÂŽ Ms. Bohr, 53, said. ÂWe have a dynamic leadership team led by David Wantman and it is both exciting and fulfilling to be the catalyst in achieving our financial objectives from strategy to execution. Our focus is to always look forward because you canÂt successfully drive performance by looking through the rearview mirror.ÂŽ Before taking the position at Wantman Group, Ms. Bohr was the chief accounting officer for a privately held civil engineering firm in Orlando. She led that company through an IRS examination with a Âno changeÂŽ audit resulting in significant savings for the firm related to Research & Develop-ment Tax Credits. While Ms. Bohr was raised on a farm, she never considered going into the family business. ÂI knew how much my family struggled and I didnÂt want that,ÂŽ she said. But the work ethic she acquired as a youngster proved to be very valuable. She said she works long hours at Wantman Group, but the work is rewarding. ÂI like the fact that David (Wantman) gives me the autonomy to make things happen that I think need to happen,ÂŽ she said. ÂI get to take what I have learned in the past and implement it here.ÂŽ Where I grew up: On a farm in northwest Missouri near St. Joseph. Where I live now: Royal Palm Beach. Education: University of Tulsa, Master of Accountancy; Missouri Western State University, BSBA Accounting What brought me to Florida: The weather! My first job and what it taught me: Working part-time in college for an insurance salesman as the bookkeeper. I learned that my work ethic growing up on a farm was very valuable to employ-ers because he rewarded me with a $100 Christmas bonus for my dedication and attention to detail. I was both stunned and amazed at how generous he was because I really enjoyed the job. It also taught me to be passionate and engaged in my work and try to make a positive difference for those who need help with the fiscal aspects of their business. Career highlights: Two; 1) becoming a licensed CPA while working for Ernst & Young (EY as they are branded now), and 2) leading a previous employer through an IRS examination with a Âno changeÂŽ audit resulting in sig-nificant savings for the firm related to Research & Development Tax Credits. What I do when IÂm not working: Golf, walking on the beach and scuba diving. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: Accounting and finance covers many types of careers (e.g., public accounting, indus-try, nonprofit, government, etc.) so it is important to pursue the credentials required for the job that creates the most satisfaction for you. Determine what you enjoy most about accounting and finance and take the courses and/or internships while in college/graduate school to develop the skill set needed for your dream job. My mentor and what she taught me: My paternal grandmother is my life mentor. She worked as a post-master at a time when this role was usually reserved for men. She was hon-est, determined, fair and even-tempered during the most difficult situations. She taught me that working hard pays off, to be kind in my dealings with others, and to do the right thing even when faced with adversity. Most of all, she taught me to follow my heart and it is OK to be real. One of my favorite quotes is by Oscar Wilde Â„ ÂBe yourself, everyone else is already taken.ÂŽ Q Name: Andrea Bohr Title: Chief financial officer at Wantman Group Inc.City of business: West Palm Beach Â“I get to take what I have learned in the past and implement it here.Â” Â— Andrea Bohr, Chief financial officer at Wantman Group Inc.BY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@Â” oridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTOAndrea Bohr grew up on a Missouri farm, but saw how much her family struggled to make a living. MONEY & INVESTINGWhat is it about the weakening yuan?ItÂs tough to understand whatÂs going on from an economic perspective in China these days. The primary reason for this is that the most populous nation on Earth is half market driven and half centrally planned; hence, one never knows whether results are achieved because the bureaucracy forced them to occur or because market forces shaped them. This is critical to ascer-tain because market forces are usually ÂrealÂŽ and tend to carry forward into the future, while economic conditions created by the government are often volatile and always difficult to predict. A good example of a key economic indicator being questioned by analysts all over the world is the dollar/yuan exchange rate. Last week the yuan weak-ened to its lowest level in five-plus years, and many analysts predict it will contin-ue to fall in the months and years ahead. So why is the yuan falling so much, and what does that tell us about China and the global economy in general? Prior to 2015, the government maintained strict control over the yuan exchange rate. Between 2006 and 2014, it strengthened the yuan in order to stimulate domestic consumer spending and show the world that the yuan was a major currency on par with other first world currencies. Then, when the Chi-nese economy started to slow in 2014, the government weakened its currency to stimulate its export-driven economy. But in August 2015, the Chinese government stunned the world by announc-ing that it would allow market forces to begin to dictate the dollar/yuan exchange rate. Although the government would send the official rate, it would allow mar-ket forces to influence the setting. Since that time, the yuan has continued to fall. So why?Analysts in one camp believe the Chinese government is continuing to manipulate exchange rates to stimulate its man-ufacturing sector and prop up its econo-my. If true, this would mean the countryÂs economy is probably worse than many believe. The government still proclaims the economy is growing at 7 percent a year, but most believe the true growth rate is closer to 4 percent. If the govern-ment is still pushing down exchange rates, it could mean the economy is even weaker than that. Clearly, such a scenario would be bearish for commodity prices such as oil and steel, as the Chinese are a massive consumer of these goods.Analysts in the other camp believe the market, not the government, is pushing down the yuan. They think the Chinese government no longer wishes to spend huge amounts of its foreign reserves defending the yuan and is therefore let-ting market forces dictate the exchange rate. The most recent fall in the yuan, they maintain, is simply the result of investors anticipating higher U.S. inter-est rates and a resulting stronger dollar. If this turns out to be the case, then maybe the Chinese economy is in bet-ter shape than many believe. However, it probably also means the yuan will continue to fall going forward as market forces continue to dictate rates. This would be hard on companies such as Apple and Yum Brands that are count-ing on Chinese consumers to drive growth in the years ahead.Regardless of which camp is correct, I think companies must count on the yuan falling in the years ahead. With many expecting the Fed to raise interest rates in the next few months, it seems we will have a scenario where the dollar continues to strengthen against almost every other currency in the world, especially those in Asia. While this will make imports cheap-er here in the U.S., it will put further pres-sure on our manufacturers and exporters.Given this is an election year, I have a funny feeling we will be hearing a lot more about this in the months ahead.

PALM BEACH BROKERAGE | 340 Royal Poinciana Way, Suite 337 | Palm Beach, FL 33480 561.659.3555 | sothebyshomes.com/palmbeach EXTRAORDINARY CUSTOM ESTATE OLD PALM | $11,495,000 | Web: 0076790 | John Lloyd, 310.795.8901 | Todd Peter, 561.281.0031 KOVEL: ANTIQUESChairs meant comfort for cockfighting fans of the upper class BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELCockfighting is not legal in the U.S. today, but in the 18th and 19th centuries the sport was a favored event among all social classes in England. There were high-stakes betting games at the ÂcockpitsÂŽ from Shrove Tuesday, and cockfights were sometimes held in the drawing rooms of county estates whose guests and owners sat comfortably in cockfighting chairs. A cockfighting chair has a rounded back and broad, curved armrests that are often padded. The seat is also pad-ded, and many are covered in leather. The sitter straddled the chairÂs back and leaned on the arms. Some think today that these were really reading chairs to be used in a library (a reading desk was attached to the curved back to hold a book). Since there are many drawings that show these chairs at cockfights, and many are also known to have been used in librar-ies, it is a mystery as to which came into use first. Legal cockfighting in England ended after the 1835 Cruelty to Animals Act was passed, but the popularity of the cockfighting chair remained until Vic-torian times. Q: I just paid $65 for a Wild Bill Hickok lunch box with matching ther-mos. It has some scratching but only on the edges. What do you think about the price I paid? A: ÂThe Adventures of Wild Bill HickokÂŽ ran on TV from 1951-58. It also was a radio show. The lunch box that pictures Wild Bill Hickok and Jingles, his horse, was made by Aladdin Industries in 1956. They sell from $50 to $225, depend-ing on condition, so you be the judge. Q: I have owned a beautiful bronze and gold statue for 30 years. ItÂs 26 inch-es tall and depicts a standing female fig-ure in a long gown with her arm draped over her head. ÂSorensen Ringi, Paris, 1899ÂŽ is engraved on the side of the base. Please give me your opinion of its value. A: Your statue sounds like the bronze and partially gilt Sarah Bernhardt figure by Swedish sculptor Harald Sorensen-Ringi (1872-1912), made at Loucet Cis-eleur in Paris. Such statues signed by Ringi have sold from $4,500 to $6,900. Other Ringi statues can be found from about $600 to a few thousand dollars. Tip: To dry a decanter or narrownecked bottle or vase, try this method: Roll up a paper towel and insert it into the narrow neck until it is about an inch from the bottom of the bottle. The towel will absorb the moisture in the bottle in a day or so. Q Â„ Need prices for your antiques and collectibles? Find them at Kovels.com.

Los Trompos set to spin on the Waterfront BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@Â” oridaweekly.comLos Trompos makes its Florida debut and Clematis by Night supersizes on June 2. Los Trompos, a colorful interactive art explosion from contemporary Mexi-can designers Hctor Esrawe and Igna-cio Cadena, is on display on the Great Lawn at the West Palm Beach Water-front, 101 N. Flagler Drive. Two bands Â„ Sweet Justice and opener Karlos Marz, perform from 6 until 10 p.m. Best of all, itÂs all free.Los Trompos, 20 spinning tops that can be pushed, ridden, spun, or simply used as a seat to enjoy a cool drink, are begging for attention. These giant-sized spinners are similar to the childrenÂs toy tops that were popular 50 years ago. Like pieces of folk art, the tops are made with bright, colorful cords wrapped around the frame and structural supports or even woven into a fabric. When they spin, like the toy, the tops create optical effects. Even the shadows they cast are visually interesting. The waterfront display is open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and will be on display through Aug. 28. ItÂs part of the West Palm Beach Art in Public Places initiative. The longer, doubled-band Clematis by Night will take place every Thursday from 6 to 10 p.m. through the sum-mer. Other land-based family-friendly activities include Glow Fore It mini golf, life-sized games of foosball and human bowling, an obstacle course and a chal-lenge to build a giant tower of Jenga-style blocks. Info: 822-1515; wpb.org.Country music at CityPlaceCountry newcomer Kelsea Ballerini is making an appearance in the Palm Beaches, specifically in West Palm Beach at CityPlace. SheÂll perform her hit songs Â„ 2014Âs ÂLove Me Like You Mean ItÂŽ and 2015Âs ÂDibsÂŽ Â„ on Thurs-day, June 2. WIRK 103.1 FM has joined with the popular venue for a series of events again this summer, and they brought a rising star for the first show. Ms. Ballerini is the first solo female country artist to score a No. 1 hit with her debut single on Billboard Country Airplay since Carrie Underwood did in 2006, with ÂJesus, Take the Wheel.ÂŽ ARTS & ENTERTAINMENTA GUIDE TO THE ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT SCENE B1 WEEK OF JUNE 2-8, 2016 HAPPENINGS ÂWeird AlÂŽ Yankovic is giving his fans his own version of summer re-runs this year, taking his ÂMandatory World TourÂŽ back out for the second straight year. ÂIf people saw it last year, they shouldnÂt come expecting anything dra-matically different because it will not be,ÂŽ Mr. Yankovic said when asked dur-ing a mid-May phone interview if he had changed his live show for this summerÂs outing, which comes to the Kravis Cen-ter on June 4. ÂI think there are enough people that didnÂt see it last summer that are going to get another chance to see it this time around,ÂŽ he said. ÂAnd it just felt like because it is the same tour that it didnÂt necessitate changing around the set list too much. And I donÂt know how much we would really change it because we still want to be promoting the material from (his 2014 album) ÂMandatory Fun,Â and also there are all the greatest hits that people are expecting to hear. So even if we did change it up, I donÂt think it would be that extensive at this point.ÂŽ If there was ever a time when Mr. Yankovic could justify bringing essen-tially the same show back for another extensive run through the states, itÂs now. Thirty-five years into his career, Mr. Yankovic has never been more popular, and this is reflected in the current live show, which figures to be plenty enter-taining even for fans seeing it a second time. ÂWe try to outdo ourselves every time we come on the road, and I do feel the ÂMandatory World TourÂ is the biggest and best weÂve done yet,ÂŽ he said.

You can hear me do just that during a Clicking In Forum on June 8 at Seasons 52 in Palm Beach Gardens. IÂll talk about assessing your treasures and getting your kids and grandkids to want them, and I will address ways for you to let them go when itÂs time to downsize. ThatÂs something that will be important as the first of the Baby Boomers turns 70 this year. After all, antiques are the great equalizer. Ask anyone and theyÂll tell you they have this plate that belonged to an aunt or that they treasure a watch their grandfather wore every day. It doesnÂt matter whether the object originally came from a prince or a pauper. It is potential treasure to its owner, and that association with a much-loved relative often transcends the object itself. IÂll talk about that as well.Join us from noon to 2 p.m. June 8 at Seasons 52, 11611 Ellison Wilson Road, Palm Beach Gardens. Cost: $65; includes lunch and beverages.

Cost: $250. The Skinny: Dorothy Draper was one of the first women to become a major interior designer in America, trailing only Elsie de Wolfe in name recognition; DraperÂs firm, established in 1925, is still in business and its president is a part-time Palm Beacher, Carleton Varney. DraperÂs colorful designs were the antithesis of the minimalist Art Deco and Moderne styles that dominated in the mid-20th century. Case in point: These dishes designed for The Camellia House, a restaurant and supper club at The Drake Hotel. When you think floral, you may think matronly. But thereÂs nothing matronly about the bold, sensuous camellias that threaten to leap off these dishes. The 61-piece set of heavy restaurant china includes a dozen of pink service plates I photographed, as well as green-bordered luncheon, salad and bread and b utter plat es, and greentrimmed cups and saucers. They first were made in 1940, according to restaurantwarecollectors.com. There are postcards dating from the 1960s that depict these plates on tables of The Camellia House. Gloria Beer, owner of Art & Antique Melange, has glorious taste. For years, these dishes had been part of her own collection. She recently downsized, and told me the dishes had come from the home of the late West Palm Beach antiques dealer Peter Werner. Ms. Beer said Mr. Werner told her they had come from the winter home of one of the owners of The Drake. Great design and provenance? Now, thatÂs an appetizing combination.

CABARET Q&A Wayne Hosford has toured worldwide and performed with numerous caba-ret luminaries including Julie Wilson, Christine Andreas, Len Cariou, Ann Hampton Callaway, Michael Feinstein, Dorothy Loudon, Marilyn Maye, among others. He has performed at Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, DannyÂs Skylight Room, SardiÂs, Spoleto Festival USA and at national conventions for both Democrats and Republicans. In addition to his regular winter gig at Club Colette in Palm Beach, he per-forms off-season in The ColonyÂs Royal Room, where he returns June 3-4 and June 10-11. WhatÂs on your program this summer? The show is titled ÂWayne, Women & Song II.ÂŽ It is a sequel to the first part that I did when I played the Royal Room last. The songs are either about, by or made famous by a woman. There is an array of styles including pop, com-edy, Broadway, classical and country. I include special material that I last per-formed in Jazz at Lincoln Center. How do you prepare for a show?The idea of the theme can typically be on a back burner for some time, and when I have enough material, I start compiling the show. There are always lots of painful sacrifices of songs before the final lineup. Then come arrange-ments, keys, rehearsal. Comedy materi-al is usually special material I have writ-ten, and the song choices are generally from the popular American Songbook through the early Â80s or so. Any rituals?Lots of liquids to keep the voice more pliable, no alcohol for about two weeks before, on into the run, and during the run. Keep the fingers and hands limber by playing daily throughout the year. Pre-show: one meal early in the day, nothing more food-wise until after the performance. Run lyrics. Do you sing every day?I sing daily unless I need vocal rest from singing too hard on the last job. How do Florida audiences compare to audiences up north? I find Florida audiences are more diverse in their tastes and responses than audiences up north, particularly New York City. Florida audiences are made up of locals and transplanted northerners, so a mindset that can appeal and identify between, letÂs say, Cole Porter and Jimmy Buffett, works for me. New Yorkers tend to be harder to please and quicker on the uptake for world event references, politics, trends. Energy is more laid back from an audi-ence here, as well, so itÂs a different vibe to reach as a performer. WhatÂs special about The Royal Room? The intimacy of the room, and its own energy make the Royal Room sin-gular. The technical aspects as well as the personnel are top-notch, and Rob Russell makes sure that performers are treated as family. ItÂs a nice cross between elegance and ÂhomeyÂŽ for me. Finally, how do you spend your days in Florida? In season I am ensconced as the house entertainer for Club Colette, to which I will return for my eighth season in November. I have private and a few public appearances during the whole year, and in my off time, I enjoy the wealth of outdoor activities available here, including the beach, golfing, boat-ing, dining and grilling outdoors with friends. I love the west coast, the Keys, Amelia Island for short getaways. ... IÂm dabbling in light gardening, but donÂt hold your breath!

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 2-8, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B7and theatrics, I think, in this show than weÂve had in the past. And you know, we just keep getting better. The crowds keep getting bigger and the energy keeps building and, you know, it doesnÂt ever seem to be dissipating. WeÂre giving it everything weÂve got every single night.ÂŽ Mr. Yankovic still sounds amazed at what he has achieved with ÂMandatory Fun.ÂŽ When it was released in July 2014, it became the first comedy album ever to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard magazine album chart. It was a special moment for an artist who has won four Grammys (including the 2015 Best Comedy Album award for ÂMandatory FunÂŽ). ÂIt was pretty mind blowing,ÂŽ Mr. Yankovic said of the chart-topping debut. ÂI never in my wildest dreams expected my album to debut at number one, just because that had never happened before. I always thought there was a bit of a glass ceiling for comedy albums.Âƒ I never even dared to hope for something like that. So there were a couple of times on live TV during that week where it was hard for me to even hold it together because it was a very emotional time.ÂŽ What might be even more impressive is that Mr. Yankovic has sold more albums than any comedian Â„ more than George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Bill Cosby, Robin Williams or even Bob Hope. ÂI have no real reason or explanation for that,ÂŽ Mr. Yankovic said. ÂI mean, there was a certain period of time, in the Â80s and Â90s particularly, where the record industry was doing extremely well, so I wound up selling a lot of records during that period. Certainly MTV was a big help during those same years to get my material out there and also sell albums. But yeah, itÂs inconceiv-able to me that IÂve sold more albums than my heroes.ÂŽ Mr. Yankovic, who got his big break in 1980 after his parodies of the Knack hit, ÂMy SharonaÂŽ Â„ retitled ÂMy Bolo-gnaÂŽ Â„ and ÂAnother One Rides The BusÂŽ Â„ the Queen hit ÂAnother One Bites The DustÂŽ Â„ aired on the ÂDr. DementoÂŽ radio program, is up to his usual tricks on his 14th album, ÂManda-tory Fun.ÂŽ He turns PharrellÂs mega-hit ÂHappyÂŽ into ÂTacky,ÂŽ which offers an encyclopedic run-through of all sorts of less-than-cool behaviors. Robin ThickeÂs ÂBlurred LinesÂŽ becomes ÂWord Crimes,ÂŽ an examination of grammatical missteps thatÂs both funny and a bit educational. And LordeÂs ÂRoyalsÂŽ is re-imagined as ÂFoil,ÂŽ which somehow evolves from a lesson on expert handling of leftovers into a tale of conspiracy theories. Mr. Yankovic said he has never tired of doing song parodies (as well as the origi-nal songs and the polka medleys that usually also populate his albums). ÂIÂm not surprised I still have a passion for it,ÂŽ he said. ÂIÂm more surprised that people still allow me to do it. I just never dreamed that at this point in my life and my career that there would still be so much interest and excitement about me going out on the road and performing. I just thought that it would start trailing off. And IÂm sure it will at some point. WEIRD ALFrom page 1 >> What: Â“Weird AlÂ” Yankovic >> When: 8 p.m. June 4 >> Where: Kravis Center, 701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach >> Cost: Tickets start at $22. >> Info: 832-7469 or kravis.org. COURTESY PHOTOWeird Al has won four Grammy Awards since his first hit in 1980.Ever thought of local artist Dan Mackin sharing his popular water scenes on a ÂpaintedÂŽ apron or Sharon Ferina sketching an alligator on a ball cap? There also is Kevin HutchinsonÂs royal poinciana tree overlooking the Indian River Lagoon or Susan RobertsÂ turtles on a tote bag. Those are just a few tropical scenes that will be available for painting at Help-ing People SucceedÂs White Shirt Night. Twelve noted artists will be on hand Sat-urday, June 11, to welcome guests at Taste Casual Dining in Hobe Sound. Artists on hand for the evening include Dan Mackin, Sharon Ferina, Carol Kepp, Sue Winocur, Ginny Jones, Cristina de la Vega, Kevin Hutchinson, Julia Kelly, Sue Ann Mosley-Saleeby and Susan Roberts. Turn your white T-shirt, a special white apron, your favorite tote bag or even a popular ball cap into a colorful display of Treasure Coast and Florida tropical scenes as the artists paint their unique designs into wearable, autographed art. In addition to the T-shirts, aprons, tote bags and ball caps, Helping People Succeed will offer a set of four napkins to be ÂpaintedÂŽ by several of the artists. The napkins will be $40 per set. All of the art will be signed by the artists.

Q Hobe Sound event to benefit Helping People Succeed When ÂDibsÂŽ hit No. 1, she became only the fifth solo female country artist to score back-to-back No. 1 hits on her debut album. Ms. Ballerini is going for a three-peat, the rarest of rare accomplishments, with her current single, ÂPeter Pan.ÂŽ The song just broke into the Top 20. All three songs are from her debut album, ÂThe First Time,ÂŽ an indication of how slowly the wheels in the record business move these days and how important patience is to a career. The almost-23-year-old Knoxville native also took home two major awards already: BillboardÂs Women in Music Rising Star award in 2015 and the 2016 ACM New Female Vocalist of the Year. Local phenom Emily Brooke will open. If you havenÂt seen the former ÂAmerican IdolÂŽ contestant perform, sheÂs worth getting to the venue early for.

YesThe team behind ÂSaturday Night LiveÂsÂŽ viral hits ÂD--in a BoxÂŽ and ÂLazy SundayÂŽ now bring us the feature length ÂPopstar: Never Stop Never Stop-ping,ÂŽ and itÂs every bit as crass, ridicu-lous and hilarious as you expect. And if you havenÂt heard of those viral videos, go see ÂPopstarÂŽ anyway because itÂs damn funny and surprisingly smart. Andy Samberg stars as Conner4Real, a music superstar who shot to fame as part of the ÂStyle BoyzÂŽ trio and later had great success with his first solo album. However, his second album, ÂConnquest,ÂŽ is a total disaster. With his life falling apart, one Style Boyz band mate, Lawrence (Akiva Schaffer), refuses to speak with him while the other, Owen (Jorma Taccone), has been relegated to the role of a background DJ. ConnerÂs manager (Tim Meadows), publicist (Sarah Silverman) and girl-friend (Imogen Poots) offer support, but you sense they realize how superficial his work and celebrity are. The story is told as a mockumentary thatÂs a mix of a ÂBehind the MusicÂŽ special and the absurdity of ÂThis Is Spinal Tap,ÂŽ complete with tales of con-troversy, rampant stupidity and back stabbing. The music is trashy, catchy and fun Â„ ÂEqual RightsÂŽ shows Conner worried about being perceived as gay while insisting thereÂs nothing wrong with it, ÂMona LisaÂŽ questions why the painting is famous by saying she Âlooks like a Garbage Pail KidÂŽ and thereÂs a false modesty in ÂIÂm So HumbleÂŽ that Mariah Carey says she loves. Speaking of Ms. Carey, we learn about ConnerÂs success and stature from pop stars such as Nas, Carrie Underwood and Usher, and there are other cameos throughout from the likes of Emma Stone, Justin Timberlake and more. Clearly, the creators of the film Â„ The Lonely Island trio of Mr. Samberg, Mr. Schaffer and Mr. Taccone Â„ arenÂt sati-rizing one person or band, but rather an entire industry of celebrity culture. It takes guts and intelligence to latch onto social trends, understand them and scathingly satirize them for optimum comic value. But co-writers Mr. Samberg, Mr. Schaffer and Mr. Taccone (the latter two also co-directed the film) only take it so far. Teetering just below the flashy outfits, marijuana, bling, entourages and hangers-on is the utter stupidity of it all. The filmmakers are absolutely aware of this but never go so far as to overtly criticize; theyÂre reticent when they could be resonant with cultural commentary on how and why we consume all the trash celebrities provide. Doing this, however, would have been tricky, as it would essentially slap audience mem-bers in the face for liking who they like, and remember this: The target audience for Justin Bieber, Pharrell, etc., and this movie are one and the same. This doesnÂt mean the filmmakers donÂt get their shots in, of course, some-times in more obvious ways than oth-ers. A TMZ-inspired TV show called ÂCMZÂŽ isnÂt even trying to be coy about what itÂs spoofing, and ConnerÂs desire to release his second album through household appliances suggests how intrusive technology has allowed the media to become whether we as con-sumers like it or not. ÂThereÂs no such thing as selling out anymore,ÂŽ he says, and darn if your music automatically playing when people open their fridge doesnÂt suggest thatÂs true. Do we really want to listen to a sellout? The story doesnÂt explore that question, but it would have been inter-esting if it did. In fairness, you canÂt deduct points from ÂPopstar: Never Stop Never Stop-pingÂŽ for not biting the hand that feeds it. ItÂs just not that kind of movie. It is, however, a funny movie with appealing music that might just get you thinking about whether the celebrities you adore are worthy of adoration. Q >> Adam Samberg Akiva Schaffer and Owen Taccone told me in an interview that Ringo Starr was the most exciting cameo they were able to get, and (jokingly) that Â“he loved the movie, and loved meeting us.Â” dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com FILM CAPSULESAlice Through The Looking Glass ++ (Mia Wasikowska, Sacha Baron Cohen, Johnny Depp) Alice (Ms. Wasikowska) returns to Wonderland and travels back in time to save the Mad MatterÂs (Mr. Depp) family. The visuals are impres-sive, but the performances and story feel overdone. Rated PG.The Nice Guys +++ (Russell Cr owe, Ryan Gosling, Margaret Qualley) A private eye (Mr. Gosling) and muscle man (Mr. Crowe) team up to find a missing girl (Ms. Qualley) in 1977 Los Angeles. The chemistry between Mr. Crowe and Mr. Gosling is tremendous, and there are enough creative laughs to make it satisfactorily entertaining. Rated R. Q

B12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 2-8, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY mertime months of June through early September. Prices for hotel rooms between Christmas and Easter may strike some as eye-wateringly high, so the good news for Floridians looking to beat the heat and drive down for a breezy weekend on the ocean is that while hotel occupancy during summertime may be booming, the prices are much lower. That means thereÂs still plenty to do Â„ from festivals to fishing tournaments, thereÂs something happening virtually every week in the Keys Â„ but at a wallet-friendly rate that will have you rounding up the family, gassing up the minivan and hitting the road before you can say ÂKey Lime Festival.ÂŽ (For the record, itÂs on June 30, and trust us: YouÂre not going to want to miss it this year.) June is an exciting month in the Keys, stocked with fishing tournaments, eco-tourism, and a few reliably kooky Key West events that draw shockingly large crowds to such a small island. (To keep visitors abreast of whatÂs going on, the Monroe County Tourist Devel-opment Commission actively updates its website calendar with summertime events throughout the Keys. To keep up with all the events Â„ those listed here and others Â„ see fla-keys.com.) We suggest starting your month on a moral note by participating in Key LargoÂs Coralpalooza, an internationally celebrated event whose goal is to promote awareness of the worldÂs delicate coral reef systems. Coinciding with World Oceans Day, Coral-palooza begins June 3, and offers certified divers the opportunity to participate (for free) in the out planting and monitoring of both new and existing coral colonies. Normally closed to outsiders, divers will get a firsthand glimpse at what the Coral Restoration Foundation is doing to protect the KeysÂ incredible barrier reef, the third largest in the world, and the only one in the Continental United States. Once youÂve done your part to save the ocean, have some fun chasing some of its most wily inhabitants around the waters off Islamorada at the Don Hawley Invi-tational Tarpon Tournament. The tour-nament, begun in 1975, has the honor of being the first to stop the killing of tarpon, setting a trend for catch-and-release tour-naments for years to come. If youÂd rather watch engines cut through the water than fins, make your way south to MarathonÂs 2nd annual Super Boat Grand Prix, where beginning on June 24, visitors can gawk at some of the biggest and baddest boats in the ocean. While some might argue that Key West shows its pride every day (the city recently supervised the permanent instal-lation of a few rainbow-colored crosswalks on its heavily trafficked Duval Street), those looking to celebrate under more official guidelines should head to Pride Week, June 8-12. An island famous for its open and inclusive atmosphere thanks to its One Human Family philosophy, Key WestÂs 2016 Pridefest will offer pageants, special exhibits, street fairs, parades, drag contests, themed parties, tea parties, and of course, a chance to party at the infamous Hot Naked Sundays Pool Party (ladies need not apply). Begin the month of July on a sweet and sour note at the fourth annual Key Lime Festival in Key West, billed as AmericaÂs favorite citrus celebration. Featuring favor-ites such as the Key Lime Cocktail Sip & Stroll, where 15 bars compete for the honor of Best Key Lime Cocktail, and the Mile High Key Lime Pie EatinÂ Contest (self-explanatory), this event is an enthusiastic and eccentric celebration of one tiny little citrus Â„ and the giant community who will gather to celebrate the general wacki-ness it has come to represent. Pie-haters, youÂve been warned. Of course, knowing your options for viewing fireworks on the Fourth is impor-tant for anyone planning to travel through the Keys during early July; those who find themselves in Key Largo should look no further than Blackwater Sound. The mirror-like surface of the bayfront is per-fect for reflecting the fireworks ab ove, making the spectacle dazzlingly immersive for those seated anywhere bayside around mile marker 104. A bit farther south, Marathon Key offers the largest and longest fireworks celebra-tion in the Keys, as well as a full day of activities that include free entry to Som-brero Beach. Bring your boat if you can Â„ each year, hundreds of ships line up along the shore to watch the fireworks, creating a truly unique experience for boaters. In Islamorada, July means an opportunity for younger anglers to get their first taste of the tournament life, when the Islamorada Summer Classic kicks off July 8. Open to adults as well as teens and junior anglers, itÂs a family-friendly event that offers a large array of target back-country species to fish. On July 9, be sure to make your way to Big Pine Key, where the annual Underwater Music Festival begins at 10 a.m. at Looe Key Reef. This nationally acclaimed event is fun for the whole family. During the concert, music is broadcast underwater via speakers suspended beneath boats perched above the reef. Costumes encouraged, whale songs optional. The 16th annual Del Brown Permit Fishing Tournament opens July 11 in Key West, and honors the late fishing pioneer known for catching (and releasing) over 500 per-mit off the Keys using a specially designed fly called the Merkin. This flats and fly tournament reveres the traditional method of fly rod fishing: no chumming, no scent-tipping, and no flies other than single-hooks. Permit fishing is something of an KEYSFrom page 1ROB OÂ’NEAL/FLORIDA KEYS NEWS BUREAUChefs Paul Menta (left) and Jim Brush (right) measure a giant Key lime pie in 2014.

He loved to fish, but he may have loved to drink even more. In any case, celebrate Hemingway the Key West way during Hemingway Days, now in its 36th year. The festival begins July 20. The highlight is undoubtedly its now-famous Papa Loo-kalike Contest, a gathering place for burly old white men who have spent months cul-tivating their snowy beards. ThereÂs also a literary competition, special exhibits and talks, the oldest ongoing 5K in Key West, a marlin fishing tournament, and a ÂRun-ning of the Bulls,ÂŽ the only opportunity youÂll ever have to see a horde of Heming-way doppelgngers run from the authorÂs favorite drinking hole, Sloppy Jones, down the length of Duval Street. ThereÂs also an arm-wrestling contest, because, well, itÂs Hemingway. Every July, lobster hunters flood the Keys for a special two-day mini-season of legal lobstering. The only opportunity to hunt for spinies before the regular season opens in August, mini-season is a kind of frenzied dash below the surface that attracts hundreds of lobster fanat-ics (along with many brave newbies looking for a taste of the mania), many of whom line up in preparation for the strict 12:01 a.m. start time on Wednesday, July 27. Participants donÂt have long to hunt; mini-season ends at midnight on Thursday, July 28. A note to newcomers: laughing at the phrase Âget your tickle stick readyÂŽ will automatically reveal you to be an obvious amateur. After the official season has begun in August, lobster fans will want to make sure theyÂre present for Key WestÂs annu-al Lobsterfest, which kicks off Aug. 11 with a traditional lobster boil. For $27.99 you can get over a pound of lobster, shrimp, Andouille sausage, crawfish, sweet corn on the cob and new potatoes. The follow-ing night, join hundreds of invertebrate-eating enthusiasts as they wind their way down Duval enjoying drink specials dur-ing the Lobsterfest Duval Crawl. The full festival lineup includes concerts, street fairs and sumptuous lobster specials throughout town. If youÂre less inclined to travel south for lobsters than you are for Adonis-looking men, youÂre probably the target audience for Tropical Heat Key West, an all-male themed celebration brought to you by the Key West Business Guild, a nonprofit orga-nization devoted to promoting Key West to LGBTA travelers. Tropical Heat promises clothing-optional parties, guys-only sunset sails and snorkel trips, drag performances, gay history-focused trolley tours and more. The full event list is still being formed, so keep an eye out for new additions. If you didnÂt get your fill of white-bearded cultural icons, youÂll probably want to book a ticket to one of the two shows Leon Russell will be playing at the Key West Theatre July 20-21. RussellÂs versatile six-decade career in music has included collaborations with hundreds of historyÂs greatest musicians, including Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Frank Sinatra, The Rolling Stones, Willie Nelson and George Harrison. Other performers swing-ing through the newly revamped Key West Theatre this summer include Â90s darlings the Gin Blossoms, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and the Grammy Award-winning Robert Cray Band. While gay gentlemen are the target audience of AugustÂs Tropical Heat celebration in Key West, Sept. 7 marks the beginning of the decidedly sapphic Key West Wom-enfest, a weekÂs worth of lesbian and ally-friendly events stretched over Labor Day weekend. Join thousands of women who journey to Key West each year to celebrate with pool parties, culinary activities, danc-es, tours and many more uniquely Key West events. Of course, sometimes the best reason to head down to the Keys in the summer is simple: the pleasure of relaxing oceanside with a cold drink, a night of bar-hopping or book-reading stretched ahead of you (Key West recently acquired an excel-lent bookstore.) Some of the KeysÂ most beloved tourist destinations Â„ swimming with dolphins in Marathon, learning to tack your first sailboat alongside your kids at the Key West Community Sailing Cen-ter, snorkeling the sunken wreckages of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary Shipwreck Trail, visiting the multitude of historic museums spread throughout the island chain, skydiving over the reef off Sugarloaf Key, or the pure joy of a night-ly sunset celebration in Mallory Square Â„ are available to visitors year-round, but often with reduced ticket prices and crowds in the summer.

Q GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 2-8, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15The Dish: Southwestern Chicken Rolls The Place: The Woods, Harbourside Place, 129 Soundings Ave., Jupiter; 320-9627 or woodsjupiter.com. The Price: $9 The Details: I had waited months to go to The Woods because I knew it was crowded in its opening months. But the crowds have dissipated along with season, so I decided to chance it. Lunch was decidedly mixed, with nothing really standing out. This appetizer, a Southwest take on Asian eggrolls, was about the best, with its combination of grilled chicken, roast-ed corn, black beans and lettuce all wrapped in a wonton that was fried and served with a trio of sweet and savory spices. It was tasty, with a nice mix of textures and flavors sweet and tangy. The turkey club sandwich ($15), with its cranberry mayo, also hit the spot. Service was OK, and as was the food. But neither my companion nor I was sure of what all the fuss was about. Perhaps another visit is in order.

ThereÂs almost always a crowd at this hub for south-of-the-border fare just east of Military Trail on Lake Worth Road. The tacos are always a hit, but the food-truck ambience and table set up in a field lend a fair-like quality to just about any meal.

I always order mine with chicken, and itÂs packed with rice, beans, cheese and pico de gallo. Good, if not good for you. IÂve heard the pastor, or spicy pork, is quite tasty. 3 ROCCOÂ’S TACOS224 Clematis St., West Palm Beach; 650-1001 or roccostacos.com.I wrote the very first review of this restaurant when it first opened eight years ago and have been a regular customer ever since. My first visit, I found service to be variable. It still can be at times, though itÂs much more consistent these days. The place is crowded, and thereÂs a reason why: The food and the drinks are good and well priced. Try a taco with the carne molida (thatÂs spicy ground beef). Or go green with the enchiladas verdes. But just go, and enjoy the scene.

But a spot of shade can foster contemplation. And perhaps thereÂs no better place in Palm Beach County to contemplate than the Mounts Botanical Garden, home to more than 2,000 species of plants, including Florida native plants, exotic and tropical fruit trees, herbs, palms and bromeliads. This summer, Friends of Mounts Botanical Garden have filled the cal-endar with activities ranging from book discussions to nature camps, evening strolls to events offering glimpses into the live of orchids. In June, the events begin with a garden book discussion of ÂWicked Plants,ÂŽ by Amy Stewart. The event is free and is in partnership with the Palm Beach County Library System. Next up, Mounts will welcome aspiring horticulturalists to Nature Camp: Pirates in the Garden, a week-long day camp for kids that instills respect and appreciation for the plant world. July is full of orchids, as Friends of Mounts Botanical Garden present an ÂOrchid Trilogy,ÂŽ set for July 9, 16 and 23, in which attendees can learn everything from the basics to how to become an astute orchid caregiver. On July 13, garden director Allen Sistrunk will lead the Summer Eve-ning Stroll.

4 LUXE LIVING JUNE 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYCOVER STORY No rules No limits Mimi MasriÂ’s defining designs Â“Location does not set a specific style, but acts as more of a backdrop to the design presented.Â” Â— Mimi Masri, MM Designs BY KELLY MERRITTkmerritt@Â” oridaweekly.comAt Mimi MasriÂs MM Designs, innovation is all in a dayÂs work. Yachts. Anything but typical nurseries. Bathrooms that feature reli-gious art. Chandeliers that look like bubbles floating through the air. On a list of what creates a great space, Ms. Masri believes rules have no place in design. Expect the unex-pected in marriages of textures, col-ors and architectural elements. The houses often are big in Palm Beach. But one thing far outweighs square footage when designing a room. For Ms. Masri, itÂs the emotion of a space. A big area should look great, but how does it feel? One example of making this work is a home she designs that looks more like a luxury hotel than someoneÂs home, yet it still maintains an inviting feel. Ms. Masri made something cavernous feel welcoming, rather than intimidating. ÂWe used features such as the awnings over the covered loggia to close in the space along with the built-in sofas, keeping the space open but adding some built-in features helps to define such a large space,ÂŽ she said. ÂIn the covered loggia, the chandeliers help to bring down the ceiling along with the large curtains enclosing the space further to create an atmosphere of intimacy, while the summer kitchen and backsplash help to add to the comfort of an indoor kitchen but still plays with the ele-ment of the outdoor space.ÂŽ Take a Red Cross Show House.The design did not conform to the Florida stamp. To get this look, Ms. Masri looked to the original designer, Mother Nature. ÂUse colors from and inspired by nature and expand the interpretation. For example, yellow can translate to gold, brass and chartreuse Â„ a color that gets demonized, so what you might want to call it lime yel-low or green yellow,ÂŽ she said. ÂFor the show house, we used our own nature inspiration by powder-coating the bed gold, hanging gold Roman shades under the floral printed cur-
FLORIDA WEEKLY JUNE 2016 LUXE LIVING 5 tains and installing the brass pendants.ÂŽ She didnÂt stop there.ÂWe added a unique spin on the tradition-al bedside lamp, along with the oversized sec-tional upholstered in chartreuse,ÂŽ she said. Ms. Masri says her team mixed natural materials such as the French pine cabinet and the Indonesian teak table to bring in another color palette and add texture. ItÂs an example of how to continue the introduction of the outdoors to the indoors. ÂIn painting the furniture surfaces the colors of nature, you imitate the way that a native South Florida scrubland truly presents itself in color,ÂŽ she said. ÂThe biodiversity of the species along with the color differences in the dif-fering plants allows for an incredible natural range of complementary colors.ÂŽ She also believes in looking up.ÂWho says ceilings are not a blank canvas?ÂŽ Ms. Masri said. She suggested the gold leaves and tracing on the ceiling as art for the beau-tiful chartreuse and gold bedroom. Ms. Masri suggests looking at the purpose of a space long before the design process begins. Case in point: A marine project completed by MM Designs contradicts what many boat owners say about decorating yachts: ÂThey all look alike!ÂŽ She says the key is never try to turn a boat project into a home, commercial or plane project. ÂBoat living has its own style even with the varying differences of size, make and model or even whether it is custom, working or leisure Â„ the nature of boat owners is to live in a nautical environment,ÂŽ she said. ÂMaking a yacht interior look like the interior of a cha-teau, a Fortune 500 reception area or the interior of a private 747 misses the point, because living on a boat needs to translate to the fact that one is floating on the water.ÂŽ That brings her back to her home base. Ms. Masri describes Palm Beach as bold, sophisticated and architectural, a place where she never goes into a project with just one line of thought. ÂLocation does not set a specific style, but acts as more of a backdrop to the design presented.ÂŽ Q MM Designs 524 24th St. West Palm Beach (561) 671-1958; mmdesignsllc.com Call for a FREE Design Consultation! 561-562-9241& CUSTOM CLOSETS 30%OFF F or a Limit ed T ime ONLY! 50% OFF F or a Limited Time ONLY!

One of her recent projects was one such puzzle, transforming a dated liv-ing room, family room and master bedroom, plus refreshing the second-ary rooms. Seeing the before and after photos of this BallenIsles Country Club home in Palm Beach Gardens, itÂs hard to believe they are of the same house. ÂThe original dcor had been done by the homeowners some 15 years prior and was a bit dated and was originally in the trend of the Medi-terranean style that was once quite popular,ÂŽ Ms. Reynolds said of the homeÂs color palette of terra cotta and ochre. ÂThe furnishings and fabrics were ornate and in heavy wood tones Â„ while the homeowners wanted to keep some color, they wanted a fresh-er, more vibrant approach.ÂŽ The clients for this particular makeover travel between Florida and Con-necticut homes. They had definite ideas of what they and did not want to take on, namely, the floors. In this challenge, Ms. Reynolds recognized an opportunity to resolve the issue with a simple but effective solution.

ÂRemov-ing the shiny finish took the yellow tones out of the stone and gave the flooring a softer, creamier color.ÂŽ Changing colors became the cornerstone of the project for Ms. Reynolds. And in choosing colors that adapt to her clientÂs resort lifestyle, she helped make the home a place that seems to evolve as beautifully as the climate that defines that lifestyle. ÂI painted the main areas in the perfect shade of soft blue that, depend-ing on the light, goes between blue, aqua and gray, plus the kitchen got a major update from dark granite coun-tertops and cherry wood cabinets to pale green onyx counters and white cabinets, which instantly opened every-thing up,ÂŽ she said. ÂWe had fun with it, pairing colorful prints with clean white to make the colors pop, and I especially love the combo on the club chairs in the living room, plus the baby blue walls in the master bedroom paired with a large scale, royal blue print that was used for the window treatment and repeated on the chairs and bedding.ÂŽ But Ms. ReynoldsÂ favorite part of the home became the family room, where she said she placed pillows and a nee-dlepoint rug from ABC Carpet & Home to anchor the whole room. ÂI designed a new built-in media cabinet to replace their old one that was too dark and too massive, so the new built-in had all the functionality of their old one, but wasn't so imposing in the room,ÂŽ she said. ÂPlus, my clients got to enjoy shopping for accessories to fill it, which contributed to the collaborative process of design.ÂŽ Q Angela Reynolds Designs 11531 N. 178th Road Jupiter (561) 624-4914; angelareynolds.com We are The Plantation Shu er Expe s.

10 LUXE LIVING JUNE 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY DESIGNER Q&AMcMow Art Glass marks four decades of glittering creations A fter four decades in Palm Beach County, McMow Art Glass has become one of the largest glass studios in the country. The company produces residential and commercial stained glass windows, beveled art glass and elaborate glass designs. McMow also hosts regular art glass classes and showcases rotating collections of retail pieces in the store. Back in 1976, it didnÂt take millions of dollars and a skyscraper of permits to make a dream happen. Shanon Materio and her husband, Phil, launched McMow Art Glass with $200. Today, the family continues to work together in Lake Worth to bring beautiful glass to South Florida and beyond. The MateriosÂ daughter Tay-lor became a partner in the business four years ago. From there she infused a new marketing emphasis and this year was promoted to creative director. She shares her insight into the magic of glass and why her familyÂs business has remained successful throughout the years. What is the difference between stained glass windows, beveled art glass, glass designs and etching? Stained glass is the technique. Beveled glass is a material. Glass designs are the sketches of the overall design pro-cess. Stained glass can be used to create windows, entryways, domes, ceilings and kitchen cabinets among other items. We create unique glass designs for these types of projects. Beveled glass is a type of glass that we would incorporate into a stained glass design. For example, a stained glass entryway would be designed to include beveled glass, which is very glamorous and elegant. Glass can be architectural or serve simply as dcor, bringing color, light, drama or serenity into a space. WhatÂs the secret to McMow ArtGlassÂs staying power? My parentsÂ passion for this art form and McMowÂs ability to continuously evolve over the years. I think anyone in the art glass industry would agree that McMow has pushed the traditional enve-lope when it comes to stained glass and this is credited to my parentÂs dedication as artists and business owners. How did this prepare you to lead the creative side of the business? My parentsÂ commitment and passion for this studio is contagious and I have certainly caught the bug. I watched their dedication growing up immersed in the business and saw how as an artist, making a living can be challenging. McMow must also support our employeesÂ families and that motivates our team toward increasingly levels of success. Personally, theyÂve instilled this responsibility in me. Tell us about your 40th anniversary Bullseye invitation for McMow to design a limited edition, custom glass style? We were honored to have the opportunity to work alongside Bullseye Glass Co., which has been creating sheet glass for the past 40 years. Sheet glass is the raw material we use to create our custom works of art. We wanted to create a sheet style that would be used in a set of new designs we had been working on to show-case the beauty of Florida and we were granted access to the entire color palette available in sheet glass manufacturing to design our own custom raw materials. We are cutting them and building them into custom panels that will be showcased in our studio. Your new line called FLORAdia just launched. WhatÂs the difference between the South Beach and Palm Beach versions? I love this new glass.

The Palm Beach-style glass is predominantly pink with a glimpse of cascading cathedral green. The pink is called petal pink and it is bright and florally, drawing inspiration from the iconic designs of Lilly Pulitzer. The South Beach-style glass is predominately green with just a pop of opalescent pink, inspired by the paint colors of MiamiÂs Art Deco buildings that create a memo-rable South Beach landscape. We hear the name FLORAdia has a special meaning. Tell us about that. This custom glass line was actually named after my grandmother, Flora Mate-rio. She passed away just days after seeing the glass for the first time. It was incred-ibly meaningful to us that she had the opportunity to see the glass that we had named in her honor. My ÂMommomÂ, as I called her, was a big part of my fatherÂs decision to start McMow alongside my mom. My grandmother was supportive when so many others discouraged my parentsÂ dream and her legacy will always be part of McMow. How are you demonstrating the value of art in commercial spaces? The historic Brazilian Court hotel is an example of this shift. This newly reno-vated space utilizes glass art in several ways, the response to which has been overwhelmingly positive. I certainly have big shoes to fill here at McMow, but I am blessed that my family is still part of the picture here, bringing their contin-ued passion to McMow every week and encouraging me to lead McMow into the future. Restoration is a big part of what you do at McMow. Why? It is critical that we preserve these oneof-a-kind pieces of art all over the United States. When we work on a restoration, we are essentially bringing the windows back to their original splendor and struc-tural stability and that they are protected from the elements. Our sister company, Creative Etchings, is the leader in etched glass in South Florida, featuring artisans who create etched designs for each cli-ent including onsite etching capabilities, allowing them to blast high pressure sand onto the surface of existing glass with no mess or cleanup. It is really impressive to see their work in process. Tell us about your art glass classes and showcases of rotating collections. People from all walks of life come to McMow to learning these ancient tech-niques every week. Our teachers are pas-sionate about glass and attendees can see how we design and craft our projects by hand right here in our studio. Q McMow Art Glass 701 N.
