Malek, MDMedical Director, SMMC Comprehensive Stroke Center8 Years leslie LILLYllilly@floridaweekly.com COMMENTARYA rising tide sinks boats with holesIf you live in Florida and have never been through a hurricane, your hur-ricane readiness is probably rated on a scale between slim and none. You are unprepared for a category anything. Be honest: Your survival checklist is buried under old tax returns in a desk drawer or went the way of the recycle bin. A decade of summers has flown by with nary a hurricane in sight. You have been seduced into complacency by a stormless lull across multiple summers. Your sense of urgency is lost, and when you suffer its pangs, they come and go like the gentle lap of the sea on an endless shore. It leaves no effect what-soever. Bottom line? There are no stormassociated what-ifs disturbing your peace of mind. During the heat of the day, you bask in the quiet, escaping the fog of humidity with a tall and frosty. Life is good. Ah, but the preachers of hurricane preparedness have not forgotten you. They appear like clockwork when the hurricane season rolls around. You lis-ten up or try to; but the short courses are about as exciting as an oil change. You make a note to self: If a hurricanes cone of uncertainty darkens your door, you must be ready. But the priority of the thought is soon lost, eclipsed by the excellent day ahead. So you say you are prepared; but are you really? Most of the experts dont think so. You are known among these skeptics as a hurricane virgin. They know it will take a hurricane experience to change your slackers attitude; and since you live here, it is inevitable you are going to have one. Till then, here are some facts: The hurricane season in the North Atlantic runs from the first of June to Nov. 30. Experts say most of the action occurs August through September. But hold on. Of the hurricanes making landfall in Florida over the last 150 years, half struck South Florida before Sept. 10, and the other half hit after that date, accord-ing to Ken Kaye, a veteran reporter for the Sun Sentinel. He does the math for us: It means the median date for South Floridas hurri-cane activity is Sept. 21. If you thought getting mostly past Labor Day was the downhill slope for hurricane activity in South Florida, he advises you to revise your thinking. Since a major hurricane has not made landfall in Florida in a decade, you might be forgiven for thinking Florida will go on escaping the destiny of its geography „ but dont. The state is, by defini-tion, hurricane central, a thumb hanging out in the Atlantic just begging for South African winds and warm waters in the Atlantic to mix it up and do their worst. But that isnt all. The state is also ground zero for the threat of rising seas. Florida has 1,350 miles of coastline. The coastline represents the source of nearly half of the states annual GDP. The bad news? Says Climate Central, Some 2.4 million people and 1.3 mil-lion homes sit within 4 feet of the local high tide line. Sea level rise is more than doubling the risk of a storm surge at this level in South Florida by 2030.Ž The majority of coastal residents are unaware of this growing threat. Storm surges create devastation on steroids and account for the majority of hurri-cane-related deaths. Most residents are unprepared for a catastrophic storm, though they think they are. A subjective measure of what hurricane readiness actually means says otherwise. Thats a problem. These and other issues were a recent topic of a live webinar hosted by the Metropolitan Center of Florida Interna-tional University (FIU) previewing its forthcoming study, Addressing Coastal Vulnerabilities and Mitigating Losses.Ž The review highlighted the results of the centers annual hurricane poll, including an assessment of the cul-ture of hurricane preparednessŽ among residents within a nine-county area in South Florida. The annual poll has been conducted for a decade. It provides a snap-shot of the longer term trends characterizing public per-ceptions of sea level rise and mitigation of hurricane-related flooding. Matthew Walker, Mabel A. Rodriguez and Dr. Maria Ilcheva conducted the research. Multiple trends are increasing Floridas vulnerability. The most egregious is the binge development occurring along Floridas coastline. Others include the decline in hurricane preparedness and risk awareness among residents; and, because the state has lagged in its response, local governments and agen-cies are becoming by default the first line of defense against inland flooding. The study also says the states Regional Planning Councils (RPCs) all use the same model to create master evacuation plans in the event of major storms. The model does not take sea level rise into account in making flooding projections. Thats a little like building a lifeboat with a hole in it to escape a rising sea. They must know it. The model is called the Sea, Lake and Overland Surge from Hurricanes model, or SLOSH for short. I kid you not. Q „ Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

Unveiling the Hillary we supposedly dont know has been the perpetual, elusive goal of Clintons handlers for decades, with the Democratic conven-tion in Philadelphia the latest stab at it. Hillary has made more reintroductions than should be allowed for a person who has never gone away. Political writer Jonathan Rauch has a 14-year rule that posits no one is elected president more than 14 years after win-ning election as a governor or senator (the traditional jumping-off points for the presidency). Elected to the Senate from New York in 2000, Hillary is tech-nically only a couple of years past this benchmark for staleness „ except this doesnt do justice to how long she has been around, and especially how long it feels shes been around. Bill Clinton announced his campaign for president in October 1991. Hillary has been with us ever since. During that campaign, Bill famously told us wed get two for one. Its been more than 14 years since she vouched for Bill Clinton on 60 MinutesŽ after the allegations of an affair with Gennifer Flowers surfaced (1992), tried to remake American health care (1993), wrote the book It Takes a VillageŽ to soften her image (1996) and vouched for Bill in yet another sex scandal (1998). It has been more than 14 years just from one Hillary scandal with a wholly implausible explanation (her amazingly lucrative cattle trades that were first reported in 1994) to another (her private server as secretary of state that was first reported in 2015). This is not to make a fetish of Jonathan Rauchs 14-year rule „ such rules of thumb are made to be broken „ but it speaks to how utterly, drearily, inescapably familiar Hillary Clinton is. Her han-dlers want to believe that people dont dislike Hillary; they just dont know her. Even if this is true, not being able to project in public qualities that make you appealing in private makes you by definition a poor politician. Over 25 years, the public surely has attained an accurate-enough picture of Hillary Clinton. They may not know all the details of her advocacy work as a young woman, but they have seen her smash-mouth partisanship, her grating insincerity, her gross money-grubbing, her serial dishonesties, her cat-on-a-hot-tin-roof caution and her grind-out ambition that has lacked a light touch or any poetry. Hillary always points out how she is a target for attack, but the two contro-versies that have dogged her in the past year were entirely of her own doing. No enemy of hers forced her to circum-vent the rules to try to keep her official emails off the grid, or to take $675,000 from Goldman Sachs for three speeches. She did this to herself „ because she thought she could get away with it. In a 60 MinutesŽ interview, she complained that a different standard applies to her, a strange plaint after the FBI director gave her a pass on her emails. This suggests the problem isnt that people dont know her so much as that she lacks all self-awareness. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINIONWho’s in charge?To a wide variety of humans for whom a democratic republic is about as tenable as a vegetable garden on the moon, this must be the most baffling of our American eccentricities: The presi-dent is not in charge. Neither are the generals or the priests.Men are not in charge, Christians and Jews are not in charge, women are not in charge, whites are not in charge, blacks are not in charge (they never were) and even Native Americans are not in charge. The Congress and the Supreme Court? The 1 percent? The corporations? Wall Street? The animals in the city zoo? Naw, not even close. So who the hell is in charge of this ship of fools known as the United States of America? Im sorry to tell you this, pal, but you are. And so are you, maam (finally). I am, too. And fortunately my wife, who is a lot smarter and cooler than I am, is also in charge. That helps. We need all the talent we can get. Yes sir, its us red-blooded Americans, an expression Ive always loved. Cut us and we all bleed the same color,Ž my late mentor and point man, Mr. Burdie C. Baker, used to say: He was as black as my grandmothers coal shed and as red-blooded as you and me and The Donald and Hillary „ who want to be in charge but arent. And wont be. Its us.Let me be blunt without being belligerent, I hope: If you arent registered to vote, get your sorry butt down to the elections office and do it. You have missed the deadline for the Florida pri-mary so register for November. If you know some people „ some boneheads or cynics who arent registered to vote „ explain it to them. Theyre in charge. So get the hell away from Xbox One or social media apps or the refrigerator, the mirror or the bar and go register. Takes about 10 minutes. I dont care if youre a dropout, a drunk, unemployed, all-knowing, a rap star, the owner of a Ford 750, the queen of selfies or the best friend of Jesus „ get your rear in gear. Want to bust our enemies and confuse the hell out of them? Vote. Be a woman, and vote. Man up, and vote. Be a redneck, an immigrant, a cracker, a Coloradoan, a chocolate bunny or a communist, and vote. Why? Because youre in charge. As better thinkers than I have noted, if the Indians had quit dancing around fires and having cookouts and marsh-mallow roasts when they were in charge „ if they had just developed a more rigorous immigration policy with a lot of redŽ tape „ we wouldnt be facing all these problems today. The mighty Calusa understood that right off the bat when Ponce De Leon first showed up on the Gulf Coast exact-ly 501 years ago. They shot him in the tail with a poison arrow and sent him packing to Cuba, where he died. The place has never recovered. But the Calusa couldnt get along with anybody else, either, let alone the Span-ish. Before long, they disappeared like flowers in a bullring. So now were in charge. Obviously theres the little matter of how to vote. The most important thing to remember is this: When you step into the voting booth, think about money. People used to say, Money is the root of all evil.Ž I dont believe that. Money is a tool. If its used properly its a good thing. We red-blooded Americans hap-pen to have a lot of money, and were going to pick a man or a woman (a vari-ety of men and women in a variety of official duties) to manage the operation and the money for us. So when you think about money, think about how theyre going to use it and who is going to get richer when they use it that way. Heres what I mean. We now have a dangerous water problem in Florida. This isnt complicated, at bottom. Weve polluted it, either because we didnt realize we were doing it, or because we could make more money at the time by not worrying about polluting it. But now we know. So when we vote, we have to decide: do we pick managers willing to spend a lot of money? Theres no cheap way to do this now and every-body knows that. Or do we pick the others, the people who merely talk about fixing our water problem? Theyll spend as little as pos-sible to save face and stretch the prob-lem out for 40 years or so. That way, their friends and campaign contributors can keep making money without having to clean up their acts. Heres another money problem we can fix in the voting booth: the shooter dilemma. Weve got these wackos with assault rifles gunning down voters and kids and cops all over the place. And this problem has nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with the Second Amend-ment. Let me repeat myself: Its about money. If those of us who remain in charge pick managers who can stop them from getting their wacko hands on these guns, the problem will be greatly reduced. We could have stopped Sandy Hook. We could have stopped Aurora or Atlanta. We could have stopped Dallas and Baton Rouge and Orlando and Fort Myers, where mentally ill Americans killed innocent people. But to pass better gun control laws that keep wackos away from easy-access guns, were going to have to agree to hurt somebodys wallet: the wallets of gun manufacturers. The wallets of National Rifle Association officials and lobbyists, the wealthiest fear-mongering lobbyists in America. Were in charge. Not them. Us. You and I. So Ill see you down at the precinct, pal „ and you, too, maam. Not the police precinct, because theyre not in charge.The voting precinct, because we are.

Q PET TALES ‘Arf’-letes for the winDogs showcase guts and glory in canine sports BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickEventing. Jumping. Racing. Diving. With the Rio Olympics in full swing, we thought it would be fun to take a look at the world of competitive dog sports, which often parallel those of their human counterparts and require just as much athletic ability, stamina, speed and agility. Top dog contestants come in all shapes and sizes, but the two things they have in common „ with each other and with human athletes „ are heart and hustle.Take Wren. The 10-inch papillon excels at the highest levels of her sport, agility. With tight turns and at top speed she races around a course that includes bar jumps, tire jumps, weave poles, a teeter-totter „ the element that can really slow a tiny dog because it tips downward more slowly „ an A-fr ame and tunnels. In the six height classes, from 8-inch (Wrens category) to 26-inch, the dog with the fastest time and fewest faults wins. Wren, owned and handled by Betsey Lynch of Tulsa, Oklahoma, has had big wins in her class in the past year, including American Kennel Clubs National Agility Champi-onship, USDAA Cynosport Performance Grand Prix and Westminster Masters Agility Championship.Any dog can compete in agility, but the dogs with speed and drive tend to be the ones at the top of the charts. Current contenders include Sierra, a Shetland sheepdog, in the 12-inch class; Hottie, a border collie, in the 16-inch class; Mr. T, a golden retriever, in the 20-inch class; Skillz, a border collie, in the 24-inch class; and Pace, a border collie, in the 26-inch class. The best agility dogs from more than 35 countries will gather in Zaragoza, Spain, Sept. 22-25 to compete in the 21st Agility World Championship, where theyll run on state-of-the-art artificial turf specially ordered for the event. Closer to home, check out the North American Dog Agility Council Cham-pionships, held Sept. 29-Oct. 2 in South Jordan, Utah. Flyball, the fastest-growing canine team sport, is a relay race popular around the world. Teams of four to six dogs race over four hurdles, pounce on a spring-loaded box to release a tennis ball and race back over the hurdles with it before the next dog begins. Each dog has a handler, and line coaches help to improve the teams performance. Any dog whos fast and loves tennis balls can play, but small dogs have a special role. They can be a teams secret weapon because jump height, ranging from 7 to 14 inches, is determined by the height of the teams smallest dog. A team with a height dog,Ž as the shorties are known, benefits because the larger dogs get to jump lower hurdles. Record-holders in the sport include a mixed breed named Everest, with a run of 3.417 seconds in United Flyball League Internationals Singles race, in which dogs run against the clock, and a team called Border Patrol, made up of mixed breeds Troy, Banshee, Epic and Syber. They hold the current North American Flyball Association Regular record of 14.433 seconds, set June 5, 2016, in Rockton, Ontario, Canada. The NAFA CanAm Classic is Oct. 7-9 in Indianapo-lis. The UFLI Tournament of Champi-ons takes place Oct. 21-23 in Gray Sum-mit, Missouri, near St. Louis. Perhaps the nearest canine equivalent to the Olympics is the Incred-ible Dog Challenge, hosted by Purina Pro Plan. Events include dock-diving, catching flying discs, surfing and more. In the West Coast Challenge, an Ameri-can Eskimo Dog named Ziggy won the Small Dog Surf Event, and a Belgian malinois named Saphira set a new world record with a 25-foot-6-inch jump in the Fetch It event. The IDC National Finals take place Sept. 30-Oct. 1 at Purina Farms in St. Louis. Q Canine athletes score big in dog sports.

A12 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 4-10, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYPop-icon, Madonna, was in court again over time sharing issues involving her son, Rocco, with her ex-husband, Guy Ritchie. For the uninitiated, Madonna lives in New York; Guy Ritchie lives in London. Rocco chose to fly to London to be with his father. Madonna filed suit in New York family court to require Rocco’s return to New York. Although the Judge granted Madonna’s request, Rocco, who is now 16, chose to defy the New York court order, and instead remain in London to spend Christmas with his Father. To date, Rocco and his father have continued to ignore the New York order. Recently, the British tabloids have quietly surfaced the fact that Rocco never left Great Britain and is, in fact, living with his father in London, permanently. Although this is anything but a traditional abduction case, Rocco’s plight highlights the global issues that now present themselves in our multi-national families. Currently, in Great Britain, over a third of its children are born to at least one parent who is a citizen of a foreign nation. While most of these foreign nationals are law abiding, child abductions are significantly increasing, unfortunately. Generally speaking when a court asserts jurisdiction over a minor child (such as the New York court did in this divorce), jurisdiction is retained in that court unless there is an intervening event. However, if the child is not actually present in the locale of the court, enforcing the order of that court becomes very, very complicated, especially outside the United States. For example, obtaining enforcement in Great Britain of an order issued in the United States about a child who happens to be in Great Britain temporarily raises issues of jurisdictional conflict and requires legal teams on both sides of the Atlantic to battle through the issues. Further, courts are very sensitive to issues caused by one parent related to a minor child especially when those issues originate in social media. On December 25, 2015, Madonna chose to air her grievances against her son, his father (her former husband), the courts, and the rest of the world on Twitter and Instagram. She then uploaded multiple photos of Rocco and sent them to her fan base world-wide. Apparently, her son did not like this. It was this fact, as well as others, that Rocco raised, through his own attorney, to advise the Judge in Great Britain of his reasons for not returning to his mother and New York. Whether it is a case of child abduction or obstruction of justice, Hudson family law is poised to assist its clients.

Hudson, Hudson Family Law THE UNFORTUNATE CHILD BEHIND THE WHEELPorsche’s home is closer than you thinkHeres a fun fact for Floridian car fans „ the nearest automotive company headquarters isnt in Detroit. Its as close as Atlanta. Porsche just moved into their new North American headquarters about a year ago, and now theyre settled in and ready for a few visitors. Making it up to Atlanta is a bit of a further trek than Disney or an FSU football game, but for the right people, it is worth the trip. Thats because Porsches $100 million investment in Georgia includes a test track for Porsche owners and wan-nabes to thrash their favorite German speed machines. While this is a tourist destination, it is also a genuine headquarters. Porsche does everything here but manufacture the cars „ from tracking German ship-ments, to training sales staff, to financ-ing, to engineering the next generation of cars. Theres plenty of 9 to 5 business going on, but thats not whats on display. The building is thoughtfully laid out so that the cubicles and water coolers are behind closed doors, and visitors will never realize that there are far more employees than tourists in the building. Instead, the whole facility showcases Porsches love for cars. The main lobby looks out on the test track and a court-yard where customers can take delivery of new vehicles. Down on this patio level is also the entrance to the on-site work-shop. It acts as an arm of Porsches ser-vice and restoration facilities in Germany. Send it here, and you are bringing it back to the factory,Ž explains Ray Shaffer whos in charge of the classic collection and delivery center in Atlanta. But they keep their schedule open for more than just high-dollar restorations. You could even just get an oil change if you want to.ŽNext to the workshop is a two-level heritage gallery thats small but impor-tant. Porsche already has a large museum in Stuttg art, but that doesnt always tell the companys whole story. So among Atlantas rotating display of significant cars are also artifacts and timelines spe-cific to America. For example, Max Hoffman was more than just their first east coast importer. He was also a lead-ing influence behind benchmarks like the 356 Speedster and the Porsche family crest. Hoffmans contributions and other significant American milestones that helped create this global sports car icon find a proper home displayed in Atlanta. But the main reason most tourists visit this headquarters is to drive the product. Porsches test track is just like going over to the rich kids house and playing with all of his best toys. Everything is available to rent from the Macan cross-over to the street-legal track car known as the 911 GT3 RS „ of course, the faster the wheels, the more it costs. Most sessions run between $300 and $800 for a 1-hour program. Participants take cars out on a high-speed gauntlet, slick skid pad and a mini road course. Its a real life version of the hot wheels track, but instead of that problematic loop, Porsches signature piece is its kick plate.Ž Right before participants enter an inch of water, they drive over a shifting table that allows their instruc-tors to randomly shudder one particular part of the suspension. This results in some spectacular spinouts over the cen-ter of the track where all visitors can see. While it may sound like Porsche only built the handling circuit for some auto-motive tourists to have fun, Mr. Shaffer tells tales of the secretive engineering department getting to play out there under the cover of night.Porsche doesnt have to worry about too many unauthorized prying eyes dur-ing this time. No one gets on the property without prior approval. It might feel like an elitist measure, but Porsche didnt make the decision. The property sits on the edge of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport „ one of the busiest airports in the world. So Homeland Security requires that all visitors are pre-registered.That doesnt mean you have to break the bank to rent a Boxster for an hour. Theres also a fine dining restaurant open for lunch and dinner. Making a reserva-tion there also gains access to the proper-ty. So you might overpay for some soup, but the view is worth every penny.

GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF AUGUST 4-10, 2016 NEWS A17 Typical Florida Airbnb host earns more than $7,200 Call it independent hospitality. Airbnb, the worlds leading communitydriven hospitality company, has released updated growth figures for the Florida market, highlighting the growth of home sharing across the state and the posi-tive financial impact for Florida residents, small businesses and local governments across the state. This data demonstrates the ways home sharing is creating economic opportu-nity for thousands of Floridians, while also bringing more people to the Sun-shine State to support our largest industry: tourism,Ž said Michael ONeil, Airbnbs regional head of public policy. According to the data, more than 16,000 Floridians shared their homes, or a room in his or her home, via the Airbnb plat-form during 2015. The typical host earned $7,200 sharing their space for 41 nights during 2015. In total, more than 750,000 people visited Florida via Airbnb last year, representing 149 percent growth year-over-year. The tourism industry is an important economic driver in Florida and a key source of revenue for state and local gov-ernments. Domestic and international travelers help pay for the Florida tax burden and help keep taxes low for Florida residents while also supporting efforts to market everything Florida has to of fer to tourists across the globe. We are committed to working with municipalities across the state to make it easier for our host community to pay their fair share of taxes,Ž Mr. ONeil said. We have a productive relationship with the state and several counties, and are having conversations with officials in many other counties to streamline the tax collection process and ensure our hosts can continue contributing to their local community.Ž Currently, Airbnb is collecting and remitting the Florida transient rental tax and sales tax, including county-level tourist taxes in 27 counties. Collectively, these agreements are expected to generate millions in addi-tional tax revenue annually. Airbnb is collecting in these counties: Bradford, Brevard, Citrus, Columbia, DeSoto, Dixie, Flagler, Franklin, Gads-den, Gilchrist, Glades, Hamilton, Hendry, Hernando, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Lee, Levy, Madison, Okeechobee, Orange, Pasco, Pinellas, Sumter, Wakulla and Washington.

of wine on her evening horizon, and the ringing din of a dynamic career in public education humming through her head. Ive been retired for three weeks. Its ƒ such a luxury,Ž she confides, search-ing for words. And Im one of the lucky ones. I loved my job.Ž Now she can call herself the former executive director of schools development in the Lee Coun-ty School District, the Sunshine States ninth-largest and one of about 70. She could be from anywhere else in the state, though, and come to the same conclusion about the profession, she says: Its a lot thornier than it used to be to teach school. Ms. Folaros spent 13 years teaching English and journalism right out of Ole Miss, 20 years as a championŽ principal in the words of her colleague, Dr. Jeff McCullers, and nine years in district headquarters trying to make life better for her schools, their staffs and especially their students „ all of which is why Florida Weekly has come calling. She knows what shes talking about.So do other administrators, teachers and education activists in the region and the state who agreed to share their views of the noble profession here. At least one disturbing conclusion can be drawn from what they tell us: Teach-ers now face what is arguably the most difficult and demanding stampede of challenges in the contemporary history of public education. And thats not good for students who face, in turn, a range of contemporary social challenges they might not have experienced en masse in previous generations. For teachers, there is less time than ever before to teach, they say. There is data crunching and lack of trust and con-stant state-mandated testing of stressed students. Teacher evaluations and one-year contracts are based on the success of students as measured in tests created by people who dont teach. There is pay that will not cover the costs of education and family life. In the face of all this, what makes a great teacher, we asked them „ and conversely, what makes it difficult to be a great teacher? Why are so many leaving a profession so essential to our futures? Teachers are ill-prepared for the demands of the current system. So its not just a matter of how to make better teachers. Its also how teachers are made to work within their system now,Ž says Sandy Stenoff, co-founder of The Opt Out Florida Network, a grassroots orga-nization based in Orlando that advocates a variety of assessments instead of a single, state-mandated test. If you look at other professions, the masters all have one thing in common,Ž she adds: Excellent mentorship „ an expert under whom they really trained, learned the best techniques. Doctors, lawyers, even craftsmen. We dont do that in education anymore. It would help to reduce attrition, too. But expert teachers are leaving. They cant teach the way they know teaching works best.Ž Laura Rider, a marine biology and environmental science teacher at Fort Myers High School, puts it this way: Loving kids, having a passion for sharing knowledge and concepts „ that makes for good teaching. Being able to be creative without walls and boundaries and getting kids in the field or the theater is good teaching. But being bound to test results, data and micromanaged by VAM (Value-Add-ed Model) scores „ thats not good teaching. It breaks my heart to see where we are.Ž Although Ms. Rider has hung on for 38 years because she has the passion, many have not. Having an adequate, effective corps of experienced teachers is a huge problem everywhere in this country „ but partic-ularly in Florida because of our growth,Ž Ms. Folaros acknowledges. Although growth may lead to wealth in real estate, construction, the service industries and others, education sits in the back of that bus, according to the National Education Association. The NEA ranks Florida 39th nationwide for salaries. Four of every 10 teach-ers who start their careers dont make it past the five-year mark, which causes everyone grief, and costs money, experi-ence and quality teaching. That dropout rate of teachers in Florida is 15 to 20 percent higher than the national average, says the NEA. When teachers depend on the success of their students in tests only to gain single-year contracts, they begin to feel threatened, they say „ especially since no one student is like another. Poverty, either economic or cultural, for example, may play a role in how both students and teachers do in some schools. And its a misunderstood enemy, says Dr. McCullers. This is surprisingly not well-appreciated by noneducators, even though the Coleman Report came out 50 years ago. Children in poverty suffer horrendous damage that permanently and directly affects memory, cognitive ability, socia-bility, behavior, emotional capacity and school resilience. I worry that sometimes people mistakenly assume that children in poverty merely have to make do with a less-fashionable pair of shoes. The real-ity is that childhood poverty causes brain damage.Ž Unfortunately, therefore, Were in a unique situation in Florida: Growth always is going to require us to be con-stantly sourcing new teachers,Ž Ms. Folaros says. Universities and colleges dont even begin to produce enough teachers, so we have invested heavily in recruiting from out of state for more than a decade. Its proven to be successful for us, but it doesnt solve the problem.Ž The problem is keeping talented people in the classroom even in the face of a range of problems, says Michael Riley, a longtime teacher, administrator and now spokesman for Charlotte County schools: One problem is respect. They dont feel they have it. Another is financial „ salaries. You go to a four-year college, you get out, and you have a relatively low-paying job. A lot of teachers have to have part-time jobs, too, which is hard on families. Testing is a major issue right now. Theres a pre-test in August, tests during the year and a test at the end of the year, so you can move forward.Ž Consequently, administrators are getting creative, since they rarely have a lot more money to throw at the problem. What else might keep teachers here?Ž asks Dr. McCullers, who taught for many years in Lee County schools. He now serves as director of program grants and development, and liaison to public char-ter schools. If Im young and bright and ambitious and talented, am I more likely to stay (a) in a school where I get extra pay or (b) in a school where I might not get as much extra pay but I am provided with a meaningful voice in school decisions or given higher responsibility for training other teachers or get to work with a mutually supportive team of high-impact teachers? Were experimenting with all of this, looking for a new model for teacher career ladders. Our early experiences with the new role of teacher leader have been quite successful. There is a strong sense that teachers leading teach-ers is the way forward, and this model is spreading rapidly through the district.Ž If the system has massive weaknesses right now, it also has very good people, it seems „ people who advocate passion-ately, even when they leave. Can all this be changed? Yes,Ž says Bruce Linser, a musical theater teacher and outgoing dean of dramatic arts at the Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts in West Palm Beach. I think we need fewer administrators and more teachers. We need fewer people telling us how to do our jobs, and more people who know how to do this, and want and love to do this, being allowed to do this. Without all the strings and standardization. Im not arguing against oversight, I think thats important. There are things that need to be taught and learned and I totally agree with that.Ž But all the extra duties of teachers „ the extra programs and management requirements „ inhibit the teaching theyre called to do. One education pundit, Jamie Vollmer, traced the advent of extra duties and programs in teaching through the cen-turies and decades from the earliest basic requirements „ essentially read-ing, writing and arithmetic „ to the cur-rent situation. In the 1970s, education began to require drug and alcohol abuse teaching, special education and Title IX programs (for girls and women who had little or no sports and other opportunities), environmental education and so on. In the 1980s, educators added keyboarding and computer education, global, multi-cultural and nonsexist programs, English as a second language and teen pregnancy education, full-day kindergarten, child abuse monitoring and more. In the 1990s programs began to include conflict resolution, HIV/AIDS education, expanded talented and gifted opportuni-ties and so on. Finally in the new century, schools introduced new safety programs, bul-lying prevention, anti-harassment poli-cies, personal finance and media literacy, health and wellness programs, and, of course, an explosion of new tests and digital programs and equipment to go with No Child Left Behind and Race to the Top. In all of that,Ž says Mr. Riley, not one minute has been added to the education day of teachers. All these subjects, all these new requirements, and not one minute added to the day. It puts a lot of pressure on the teacher.Ž Considering all this from the luxurious vantage of her well-deserved retirement, Ms. Folaros offers a concluding observa-tion: For teachers trying to do their job? It could no more be done in a seven-hour day than I could run a four-minute mile.Ž QQQBob Wise, former governor of West Vir-ginia, also spent 18 years as a U.S. congressman. He is now president of the Alliance for Excellent Education and author of Raising the Grade: How High School Reform Can Save Our Youth and Our Nation,Ž among others. He spoke to Florida Weekly by telephone from West Virginia.Teaching needs to be recognized for the true profession it is. We have high expec-tations of teachers, just as we have high expectations of law-yers, doctors and oth-ers. We need to give them the tools so they can exercise discre-tion in their classrooms. They contend TEACHERSFrom page 1WISE FOLAROS “Teachers are ill-prepared for the demands of the current system. So it’s not just a matter of how to make better teachers.

We dont have to keep beating them up all the time. When I take a child to a doctor, that doctor has to work with different chil-dren and situations, not just mine. So why is that different than when I take that child to a classroom, where 20 to 30 students have different situations. We need to expect a lot of teachers, but give them the tools they need to do a lot. Core content is important, but were asking our teachers to respond to the needs of a modern society and economy, to develop students who can think criti-cally, solve problems, and use facts. A student today has to learn how to learn, and to apply what they know. High-stakes testing? If you want to have a high stakes test, thats valid for one measurement, but its no longer valid across the board for a range of demands. And if youre going to pay teachers based on the test scores of students, make that only one criteria. Have several different indicators. Im an optimist (about education in the future). Were at a true crossroads. Were seeing a lot of different cultures coming together in our society. Some-times its rough, but we have the ability to learn from each other. So teachers are the new true professional because they have to relate to a number of different cultures in the classroom, but build the commonality of our country and our values. We need to let them take hold of this. The more teachers are defining what they do in the classroom and what their needs are, the better we can support them. Weve been preparing teachers essentially the same way for the last 150 years. So what do they need now? They have to be self-governed, to decide whos quali-fied and who isnt, and thats tough. But trying to micromanage teachers „ that wont work.Ž QQQDr. Kathy Piechura-Couture, now professor of educa-tion at Stetson University and a researcher at the Nina B. Hollis Institute of Educational Reform, spent seven years as a public school teacher working with special edu-cation children.One of the things former Gov. Bob Wise said on our (NPR) panel was that we need to treat teachers as profes-sionals. Were so busy micromanag-ing it becomes over-whelming. I joined some teachers in a workshop at the end of the school year „ it was in DeLand, at Woodward Elementary. The school had been rated an A school for years, but it suddenly dropped to a C „ same wonderful teachers „ and they were devastated. Some had tears in their eyes. They were saying, Why? I feel like a first-year teacher. Its because the standards for achievement change every year. Youre a teacher, and youre trying to create seven lesson plans every day, for 180 days. And youre expected to teach with fidelity, a term that means follow the district standards. But they change. Every year. Its a moving target.

QQQLaura Rider teaches marine biology and environmental science at Fort Myers High School.Im in my 38th year. I went into teaching not for the money but because I have a passion for it. When I started there was a trust among the adminis-tration „ they trust-ed their teachers. Staff were following the curriculum given to them by state, and they were given rein to be as creative as they wanted to be in teaching the requirements. We could take students outside, take them on field trips and we were encour-aged to do so. But somewhere along the line, people decided that suddenly teachers werent accountable. So the noneducators need-ed to get their fingers into designing standards „ massive amounts of stan-dards „ and designing tests that could possibly check those standards, and that would drive education. As a result of that, teachers are no longer willing to go out of the classroom because of time, and teachers who re-fuse to let students go out of the class-room because theyre afraid they wont pass the tests. This has cut down on a variety of events that used to be part of school life „ guest speakers or pep rallies depend-ing on the grade level, for example „ so education becomes nothing but stan-dard-based cattle-driving, straight into the slaughterhouse. Until the last eight or 10 years, I had never seen so many children who are anxiety-ridden, stressed, disinterested in school. The pleasure and joy of teaching is gone with these evaluations ƒ Throughout most of my career, your principal would come in and say, Hey, were going to do an observation, and you would say, Great, Im doing a great lesson. In the teaching environment now, anybody walks in at any time with their iPad, and theyre checking a multitude of criteria. Whether you have your data wall up, if your data is on the board, if your essential question is on the board, if your objectives and your agenda are on the board „ thats all busywork. It takes away from teaching, but I do it. You never know when theyre going to come in. All year long youre holding your breath: Are they coming in today? You dont feel trusted.ŽQQQBruce Linser, a six-year musical theater teacher and the outgoing dean at the Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of the Arts in West Palm Beach, will begin teaching col-lege theater courses at Florida Atlantic Univer-sity and Broward State College this fall.Dreyfoos is an awesome public high school. If you have to teach high school, thats the place. The students are terrific, and the schools reputation is incredible. Stu-dents go onto amaz-ing college and uni-versity programs and do great. And the fact that there is a public school with an arts-centered program right here in Palm Beach County is a great resource. Since I taught musical theater and was dean of the theater department, I know teaching from the classroom and the administrative side. We had a lot of freedom in terms of how we were al-lowed to teach the subject matter. But the testing and teacher evaluations, this is new and its created a lot of headaches for a lot of people. One of the things we spend so much time doing is crunching all this data. Data has nothing to do with students or humanity, and teaching is all about humanity. This data takes us away from all of that. Teaching to me is a creative art, because youre dealing with students from different backgrounds, different levels of expertise, different learning modali-ties „ you just have to be creative, to think on your feet, to figure out what works for those sitting in front of you. One of the big problems with public education is all of this standardization. You cant standardize education. Youll never be able to standardize it. We have to teach to students sitting in front of us, and standardization prevents that. Its hobbling really creative teachers by boxing them in, in ways I dont think is healthy for students, or for teachers. Another problem is the pay. Its a huge thing for teachers. We dont go into it for the money, but they ask for so much. There is so much time expected, and the more they lay on us the harder it is. Were paid lower than in many or most other states, so its a challenge that gives you restrictions and expectations but doesnt ante up on the other side. Thats a big important part of whats go-ing on and why people leave. Were also struggling with charter schools. So much money goes to char-ters, and we are losing great resources because of that choice. I dont want to limit peoples choices, but we should look at the big picture. This business of trying to privatize education so some-body else is making money on it, that hurts us. Theres one more issue and challenge: Society has changed a lot. Theres this thing called entitlement that is re-ally in the way. Parents are too involved, districts are afraid of litigation, some-times behind the scenes parents and students are in control, and teachers and administrators feel theyre backed into corners.ŽQQQSandy Stenoff is cofounder of The Opt Out Florida Network, a grassroots organization based in Orlando that advocates a variety of assessments instead of a single, state-mandated test.The pressure on teachers from their districts and ad-ministrators to en-sure their students do well on the state tests is now greater than the states duty to provide students with the high-quality education they need and deserve. Doing well on a test is not the same as being well-educated. Dis-tricts may say they want to reduce test-ing and the importance of testing, but district policies usually thwart the abili-ties of teachers to teach as they know best. School grades based on testing is one of the biggest problems. It drives the testing machine. School grades determine school funding, teacher bonuses, principal compensation. And dollars determine everything. This is why, although the U.S. Department of Education requires something like 17 tests throughout K-12, states must show mettle. They demand progress monitoring so that they can identify the kids who are struggling (read: Kids who wont pass the test that determines everything). So the state re-quires unnecessary and crazy progress monitoring. All of the incessant testing is to ensure success on the Florida Standards Assessment. Third-graders who cant pass are retained to falsely prop up fourth-grade scores, which are used to attract business to the state. Kids who fail the FSA in third grade will do better on the FSA the second year around, but they themselves will be very little better off as students. Then they go on to test great in fourth grade, and Jeb Bush, who created this system, then gets to toot his horn over fourth-grade reading scores. School grades are used to market real estate. If parents truly understood how school grades distort their kids educa-tion, elementary especially, they would stop buying those bumper stickers that say, My kid goes to an A school.Ž So the pressure on teachers to ensure their students do well on the test supersedes the duty to provide students with the educational tools they need and deserve. Doing well on a test is not the same thing as being well-educated. Dis-tricts may say they want to reduce the focus on testing, but district policies thwart the ability of teachers to teach as they know best.ŽQQQMike Riley a 37-year teacher and administra-tor, is now spokesman for the Charlotte County School District. There are several problems teachers face now that may be new. One is respect „ they dont feel they have it. Another is financial, salaries. You go to a four-year college, you get out, and you have a relatively low-paying job. A lot of teachers have to have part-time jobs, too, which is hard on families. Testing is a major issue right now. Theres a pre-test in August, tests during the year and a test at the end of the year so you can move forward. But if you take a test in April and dont get the results until the next fall, what does that do? And every test costs money. The tests shut the computers down. There are a lot of hours involved in preparing those tests. Its the same everywhere. Another thing is the pay for performance: A teachers evaluation is based on how well their students do. Every child cant learn as much as they need to in a short amount of time. A teacher can be doing a marvelous job, and if the child chooses not to take it in, or is men-tally not capable, its like a punishment to the teacher. Would you want a 7-year-old or an 11-year-old or a 14-year-old responsible for how much you got paid? Is the test bad? Im not even going there. But the amount of time taken by these tests is hurting students. And teachers. And the districts. One of reasons they teach for the test is theyre paid for performance, and also the district „ funding is based on that test performance. This year on school grades, only three districts out of 67 in the state of Florida received an A. St. Johns, Sarasota and someone else. So many kids come to school with problems from home. And it spills into classrooms when it was a neighbor-hood or a home problem. Meanwhile, our teachers have gone five or six years without a raise.ŽQQQDr. Jeff McCullers is director of program grants and development, and liaison to public charter schools in the Lee County School District.Would more money help?Yes, yes, and yes. Of course it would help. Money helps a lot of things, espe-cially for young people who are paying off massive college loans and trying to find a place to live in our high-priced mar-ket. But does that solve anything? I sup-pose a more nuanced way of thinking about the question is how much money does it take to make a differ-ence, and what is the opportunity cost of that money? In other words, if we increase teacher salary by $5,000 a year, that might well keep some teachers solvent enough to pay local rent and so they might stay longer. The cost of that increase in a dis-trict our size would be well over $25 mil-lion every single year. Is that enough of a raise to really make a difference? Where would all that money come from? How long would it continue to be available? What else could we do with that money? We resolve this somewhat by offering increased pay to successful teachers who are willing to relocate to low-per-forming schools. The idea is that instead of spending scarce money everywhere, we spend it in a targeted way to get the most benefit from it. Weve only been doing this for a little while, so were still trying to figure out all the effects that might ensue.Ž Q RIDER LINSER STENOFF MCCULLERS TEACHERSFrom page 19 A20 NEWS WEEK OF AUGUST 4-10, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY

With two young children of my own, I appreciate the steps par-ents take to help ensure that their kids have a successful start to the new school year. On behalf of the team at the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital, here are some tips from our pediatric specialists. Suggestions for a smooth transition from summer vacation to the classroom: Reducing anxiety „ As the time approaches, some children may be ner-vous for the start of classes, especially if itll be their first day at a new school. You can help reduce your childs anxi-ety by describing what school will be like and what to expect during the day, visiting the school with him or her before classes begin or scheduling play dates with future classmates outside of school. Help kids get familiarized with a new daily pattern by implementing one prior to the start of the school year. Once school has started, talk with your chil-dren about school activities and give them positive feedback about their new experiences. Healthy eating routines „ To ensure your children have nutritious and bal-anced meals, pack a lunch and snacks with whole-grain breads and lean meat and swap out soda for water or skim milk. To maintain proper food tempera-tures, try using cold packs or thermoses. If your schedule doesnt always allow time to prepack a lunch, try reviewing the schools menu and recommending the healthier options avail-able. Teaching your kids how to make healthy food choices can add up to a big nutritional difference. They can choose trail mix instead of cookies or baked chips instead of a fried snack. A healthy diet not only helps children learn and grow, but may also help prevent obesity and diabe-tes. By limiting fast food and junk food, and eating a nutritious lunch, your child will have more energy to finish school and enjoy after-school activities. One of the many resources available at the Palm Beach Childrens Hospi-tal is nutritional counsel-ing. Our staff works with patients and their families to put together a nutritional plan, taking into account any chronic issues patients may have, as well as helping to avoid future issues. Addi-tionally, we can provide a variety of inpatient and outpatient treatment options for abdominal pain, acid reflux, intestinal disor-ders, childhood obesity and other con-ditions caused by poor eating habits. Guidelines for backpacks „ Schoolaged children should pack lightly and organize their backpacks so that heavier items are in the center of the back. Advise your child to avoid wearing his or her bag on one shoulder since this may strain muscles and increase curva-ture of the spine. Backpacks should have wide, padded shoulder straps, a padded back and weigh less than 10 to 20 percent of your childs body weight when packed. A rolling backpack is also a good option to avoid adding extra weight on your childs body. The Spine Center of Excellence at St. Marys Medical Center and the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital is the first in Palm Beach County to earn Joint Commission certifica-tion. If your child develops severe back pain due to pro-longed backpack use, or suf-fers from an already existing spinal affliction, our team of medical specialists can help address concerns and create a plan that will help get him or her back to their daily routine, free of pain. With your support and guidance, the first days of school can be fun and mem-orable for your child. Dont forget to point out the excit-ing things about going back to school, such as seeing old friends and making new ones. Award-Winning CareFor the second consecutive year, our hospital has been voted as the Best Pedi-atric ER and Best Pediat-ric Hospital in Palm Beach County by South Florida Parenting Magazine. Despite this prestigious achieve-ment, our true commitment is caring for children in our community when they are in need of our award-win-ning services. Whether its back-to-school season or anytime of the year, the Palm Beach Childrens Hospi-tal heals for them.

The enhancements, which have helped FPL achieve the best system reliability in Florida and 50 percent bet-ter than the national average, will posi-tion the company to deliver even greater reliable electric service for customers year-round. Our three-year storm hardening plan will help us deliver reliable service to our customers in West Palm Beach, thanks to a more resilient energy grid,Ž said Eric Silagy, president and CEO of FPL. Our customers are already see-ing the benefits of strengthened power lines, with hardened lines showing on average a 40 percent improvement in everyday performance. Through a num-ber of new projects in the area, we will deliver even better service they can count on in good weather and bad.Ž Improvements within the statewide plan include the completion of harden-ing main (feeder) power lines serving critical community facilities, upgrading the main power lines across FPLs ser-vice area, initiating upgrades of smaller neighborhood (lateral) power lines and continuing to replace wooden trans-mission line structures with steel and concrete towers. FPL also will continue to deploy tens of thousands of intel-ligent devices and smart switches „ in addition to the 36,000 installed to date „ to help detect and predict problems and restore service faster when outages occur. This years investment includes upgrades to nine main power lines serv-ing key facilities in the area. The proj-ects strengthen the electric system to better withstand major storms and allow for faster service restoration follow-ing power outages. The work consists of installing stronger power poles „ including, in some projects, concrete poles designed to withstand wind gusts of up to 145 mph. FPL is continuing to invest in building a stronger and smarter grid that our custom-ers in the West Palm Beach area can count on year-round,Ž said Manny Miran-da, senior vice president of power delivery for FPL. For example, were upgrading the system supplying energy to Palm Beach County Fire Res-cue and Palm Beach International Air-port. This not only allows us to restore power to our customers faster, but it aids in getting life back to normal quick-er when customers need us the most.Ž FPL also will install 23 automated switches on main power lines and 13 automated switches on smaller power lines serving neighborhoods and subdi-visions. The automated devices detect and prevent potential problems along the energy grid, as well as restore and reroute power, when necessary, to reduce the number of customers affect-ed by an outage. When the planned 2016 work is completed, FPL will have made the follow-ing improvements in and near West Palm Beach since 2006: Q Strengthened 20 main power lines, including those serving critical local facilities. For example in West Palm Beach, these include the Palm Beach International Airport, Palm Beach County Convention Center, St. Marys Medical Center, Good Samaritan Medi-cal Center, West Palm Hospital and two 911 emergency communications centers; Q Inspected 23,110 power poles, restoring or replacing those that no longer meet the companys standards for strength; Q Cleared 1,970 miles of power lines of trees and vegetation „ a major cause of power outages; Q Inspected 110 main power lines and equipment using the latest infrared technology, helping FPL address issues before they cause outages; and Q Installed smart grid technology, including 50 automated switches on main power lines and 442 automated switches on smaller power lines serv-ing neighborhoods, to help detect and prevent power issues and get life back to normal faster if outages occur. Since 2006, FPL has invested more than $2 billion across its 35-county ser-vice area „ in addition to ongoing system maintenance and improvement work „ to make the energy grid stron-ger and smarter. This includes: Q Strengthening more than 600 main power lines, including those that serve more than 700 critical community facili-ties such as hospitals, police and fire stations and emergency communication systems; Q Clearing vegetation „ a major cause of power outages „ from more than 135,000 miles of power lines; Q Inspecting all power poles „ more than 1.4 million „ and upgrading or replacing those that no longer meet our standards for strength; and Q Installing more than 4.8 million smart meters and 36,000 intelligent devices along the energy grid using advanced technology that helps detect problems and restore service faster when outages occur.

As a sales support associate with Bank of America, she works with the banks public sector banking group ded-icated to working with state and local municipalities, school district, state higher education and special taxing dis-tricts providing sales support to clients in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. The bank encourages employees to give back and get involved in the com-munity, something Ms. James enjoys. I love to be out in the community working with fellow teammates through our Bank of America Community Vol-unteers, where I serve as the co-chair,Ž she said. We partner with organiza-tions like the Palm Beach County Food Bank and Habitat for Humanity. I have enjoyed volunteering with Autism Speaks of Palm Beach County, who I was humbled to receive the Vol-unteer of the year award from this year,Ž she said. More than 3.5 million Americans live with an autism spectrum disorder, Ms. James said. This year we had a record-breaking turnout of over 10,000 people at our annual walk I helped organize. We are already hard at work for the 2017 walk, which will be held March 5, so mark your calendars now.Ž Ms. James, 32, was 21 when she got her first job in banking, as a teller, at a Bank of America behind the mall where she worked previously. It was a small town with only 2,500 people and no traffic lights. I so much love talking to people and getting to know about them, she said. The bank said they had openings and I applied and got the job. It was a good fit.Ž Although she works at a different bank now in a different state, and in a different position, banking is still a good fit. I love that I get the opportunity to work with so many different people,Ž Ms. James said. Its a great mix, and not just my clients. I have amazing team-mates.Ž Where I grew up: Dallas Center, Iowa. Where I live now: West Palm Beach. Education: I started my education at Iowa Central Community College and am currently looking to further my education at a university here in South Florida. I have also taken advantage of the education courses and leadership opportunities offered through Bank of America. What brought me to Florida: After moving from Iowa to Charleston, S.C., and spending five years there I decided it was time for a new adventure. I love working for my company and was thrilled they gave me the oppor-tunity to stay with the company but move to a new state. After years of thinking Florida was not a place I would ever live I found myself drawn to Palm Beach County. I love the vibrancy of South Florida, and Palm Beach County is a perfect fit for me from the gorgeous beaches to arts and culture. You just cant beat resort-style living „ and my dog, Maks, loves it, too. My first job and what it taught me: I started my first job at 15 as a lifeguard, which taught me the importance of what it means to be a team player, being responsible and that work can be some-thing you can truly enjoy. A career highlight: Getting the opportunity to learn the commercial side of the bank and join the Public Sector Banking team in 2013. In addi-tion, Bank of America encourages all employees to give back and get involved in the community. Their commitment to community service has really allowed me the opportunity to get involved with some impactful organizations here in Palm Beach County. What I do when Im not working: I love to be out in the community doingŽ with fellow teammates through our Bank of America Community Volunteers. We partner with organizations like the Palm Beach County Food Bank and Habitat for Humanity and Autism Speaks of Palm Beach County. The Womens Foundation of Palm Beach County is another wonderful organiza-tion I enjoy spending time with that is committed to investing in women and girls encouraging leadership and positively affecting their economic and social status. Best advice for someone looking to make it in my field: I believe that being the best teammate you can be is key. To me this is achieved by being adaptable, willingness to broaden your knowledge base as much as possible, taking every chance you can to make opportunities into learning experienc-es, making connections with those you interact with and, above all, always keep a positive attitude. About mentors: I dont have a formal mentor; instead Im very fortunate to work with so many wonderful team-mates and partners that I take every opportunity I can to learn something from each of them. There is a sign that I have that sits by my desk that says Innovation: The best way to predict the future is to create it.Ž This reminds me to take every opportunity as some-thing to learn from and continue to keep working hard toward my dreams.

Strainge comes to St. Marks from The Tower School in Marblehead, Mass., where she served as a teacher and admin-istrator for 28 years. Before joining St. Marks, she served as assistant head of school and also served Tower as head of lower school and a first-grade classroom teacher. Given the significant physical and reputational growth of St. Marks in recent years, the search for a new head of school warranted a national scope,Ž said the Rev. Jim Cook, rector. The appeal of St. Marks became clear early on in the search, and we were blessed to receive many qualified applicants from around the country. We are grateful that Debs skills, temperament, experience and vision are an ideal fit for St. Marks.

Cost: $8. The Skinny: When Marx created the Best of the West series of action figures to compete with Hasbros GI Joe line in 1965, the company wisely played to Americans passion for Westerns on TV and on the big screen. These were the days of MaverickŽ and Gunsmoke.Ž The first figure in the series was Johnny West. In 1966, Marx followed that by creating a modern-day cowgirl, Jane West. They were fully jointed and could stand on their own. Each came with its own outfit of removable vinyl clothing „ vests, skirts or chaps and hats. Other figures followed over the next decade, and you could order wagons, horses and teepees. As collectibles, pieces of the Best of the West series are fairly affordable „ I recently saw a complete Jane West set with 21 accessory items for $40 on eBay. They have a great graphic look and serve as sweet reminders of childhood for those of us of a certain age. Q „ Scott Simmons Marx Jane West figure THE FIND: It was the Best of the West.But I remember it as the best of childhood. Thats not too far from my reality. The late 1960s were a magical time for me. I had two parents, a baby sister and six doting grandparents who savored their roles in my life. My Grandpa Bolender, who lived in Fort Myers, loved to tease me. My step-grandfather, Bill Coulter, known as Grandpa Bill, always had a kind word for me, and my Grandpa Simmons, who lived in Belle Glade, idolized me. Any time Grandpa Simmons came to visit or I went to visit him, he would take me for a little light shopping „ never anything expensive, but always something I would enjoy. Remember W.T. Grant? Both Belle Glade and Fort Myers had Grant stores that had nice toy departments. I vividly remember Grandpa taking me to the Belle Glade store on Avenue A and buying me a Jane West to go with my Johnny West action figure. I think I also had Johnnys horse Thunderbolt, complete with rubbery vinyl saddle and other accoutrements. Oh, I had a blast with those toys, and Johnny and Jane eventually rode off into the sunset of memories. I dont know what happened to my Best of the West figures, but I do remember that day, and I remember my loving grandfather. I cant put a price on that. Q LOOK WHAT I FOUND FAMILY PHOTOScott Simmons with his grandfather, Fred Simmons, and his father, David Simmons, in Belle Glade.

The Movie P P Pl Pl us s us u D D Di Di i D i D D D D nn nn nn nn e er er r e r ! ! CABARET Q&AAnyone who has seen Carole J. Bufford live will tell you shes a firebrand. She dazzled during a performance a few years ago at The Colony Hotels Royal Room cabaret, and left the audi-ence begging for more „ never mind that the show had been an exhausting tour-de-force of tunes old and new. Stephen Holden of The New York Times described her as, A doll-faced latter-flapper with a broad sense of humor.Ž Wed agree.See her Aug. 5-6, 12-13, 19-20, 26-27 and Sept. 2-3, when she wraps the Royal Rooms summer cabaret season. „ Scott Simmons Whats on your program this summer? I am thrilled to have five weekends at The Colony this summer. I like filling my shows with an eclectic mix of music „ American Songbook, Broadway, jazz, blues, R&B, even a little country occa-sionally. If its a good story, I wanna tell it. I plan on changing my show from week-end to weekend. I would love for audi-ences to make return visits and hear new material. I love finding fresh takes on classics and occasionally trotting out newer discoveries. This summer, a portion of my show each weekend will be devoted to one of my favorite lead-ing ladies, from Judy Garland to Bessie Smith. How do you prepare for a show? If the show is a tribute or themed, I start with research. Reading anything I can get my hands on „ biographies, magazine articles, newspaper pieces. I also fall down the YouTube black hole, its easy to get lost in there. One of my favorite things about this early part of the process is discovering new songs. There are so many little known gems out there waiting to be dusted off and paraded about! Then the list „ it usually starts at around 100 songs. Bit by bit, I whittle it down to what I think will tell the story and make an enjoyable evening. Then, finally, I get to start rehearsing and put the whole shebang on its feet. Any rituals?Right before I go onstage, I have an eyes-closed quiet moment where I say the exact thing to myself before every show. But if I told what I say, Id have to kill ya! Do you sing every day? Yes. Whether rehearsing or not, I sing everyday. I saw a funny meme the other day: Anyone who doesnt like musicals because people dont just start singing and dancing all of a sudden in real life has obviously never been to my house.Ž So true. How do Florida audiences compare to audiences up North? I adore Florida audiences. Theyre a savvy audience, an appreciative audi-ence. Theyve certainly been lovely to me! The very first time I played The Royal Room, five years ago, I did a delicious little double entendre blues tune called, Youve Got The Right Key (But The Wrong Keyhole).Ž I wasnt really sure how it would play, but I discovered there and then that Palm Beach audiences arent the stuffy sort! Great senses of humor and adven-ture, which is all you could ask for in an audience. Plus, theyre the best-dressed audience Ive ever encountered. Whats special about The Royal Room? Oh gosh, what isnt? The Royal Room at The Colony has become a little home away from home for me. I played here directly after getting married „ a work-ing honeymoon! The room itself is perfect, an elegantly laid out jewel box space. But to me, the real magic lies completely in the people who make it all hap-pen. Every. Single. Person. Its uncan-ny. Roger Everingham (the hotels vice president and general manager), who created this idyllic venue, has certainly got the magic touch. Rob Russell (the entertainment director) is the perfect host and keeps that room running like a well-oiled machine. Plus, we have a ball scampering all over Palm Beach pro-moting the show. This is to say nothing of the incredible staff in the room, in the kitchen, and throughout the hotel. They are some of the kindest, most gracious people on the planet. I spend more time running around hugging people than I do singing. Finally, how do you spend your days in Florida? Lazing on the beach, strolling up and down Worth Avenue, ogling divine jew-elry at Sequin, happy hour at Charleys Crab (almost every day), applying and reapplying sunscreen (SPF 1 million), hanging out with my friends that Ive made over the last five years.

Theres not really a theme, per se, for the show. The authors claim there is a through line for the characters, but I dont necessarily see that when I look at the show. We werent going to do that anyway, because were going in a slightly different direction here. Its going to be a completely new experience, because of the way weve chosen to do it. We decided to take this music that is really familiar and place it into some specific, interesting and different scenarios to illuminate the lyrics and do it a different way. Its very popular music people will know and recognize. They may not necessarily know its a Kander and Ebb tune, but when they hear the music, theyre going to know it.Ž The original production of The World Goes Round,Ž which opened Off Broadway at the Westside Theatre in New York in 1991, ran for 408 per-formances and garnered three Drama Desk Awards. The current cast includes local performers Clay Cartland, recent-ly seen in Palm Beach Dramaworks 1776Ž; Jinon Deeb and Michael Scott Ross, who appeared in MNMs recent highly acclaimed production of HairŽ at the Kravis Center; and Shelley Kee-ler and Leah Sessa, who co-starred in MNMs production of Side By Side by Sondheim.Ž MNM Productions hires only local performers,Ž Mr. Linser said. We dont bring anybody in from New York. So everybody in this cast is really well known in the South Florida theater community. I think thats an awesome thing, because you get to see people you know stretching and trying new things.

B12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 4-10, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLYthe Royal Poinciana Playhouse in Palm Beach, a beautiful, steeply raked space that had no backstage to speak of. All that changed in 1992, when the Kravis Center opened. The 2,195-seat Dreyfoos Hall was nothing short of a miracle. The 300-seat Rinker Playhouse opened a short time later, and the center never looked back, booking such iconic acts as Frank Sina-tra, Tony Bennett and Ella Fitzgerald, as well as such bold dance innovators as Martha Graham and Alvin Aileys companies. Over the course of those 2 decades the center has grown, rebuilding its Cohen Pavilion and adding an addition-al 300-seat flexible performance space, the Helen K. Persson Hall. This season marks the Kravis Centers 25th season, leading up to its 25th birthday, and true to form, the empha-sis is on diversity, from such shows as Kinky Boots,Ž on the Broadway series, to the Golden Dragon Acrobats, on the Adults at Leisure series. Such iconic solo stars as Itzhak Perlman, Patti LuPone, Kristin Chenoweth, Melissa Etheridge, Jay Leno, Lang Lang, Chaka Khan and Smokey Robinson round out the bill. And the Kravis now has Michael Feinstein leading a pops orchestra the center calls its own. Who could ask for anything more?

B14 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF AUGUST 4-10, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com GARDENS/JUPITER FLORIDA WEEKLY VINORos is still the rage, especially in the heavy hot days of summerIts been over a year since I wrote about the renewed popularity of ros wines, but the topic is worth revisting for several reasons. First, weve recently tasted some extremely enjoyable samples that wed love to share. Second, its summer, and while those big teeth-purpling reds are great for the cooler weather, on the hot days our thoughts turn to lighter beverages. And third, the enthusiasm for ross in the market has not diminished a bit. Appar-ently, the rage goes on. Fine by me. There are a couple of basics to remember when youre searching for the per-fect pink wine during the summer months. These wines can be made out of any red grape, and it mostly depends on where theyre from. In Tavel and Lirac in the south of France, theyre generally made from grenache, or maybe Syrah. But Ive sampled some that are made from pinot noir, and even zinfandel. Each one has its own set of flavor and aroma characteristics. Next, keep in mind that there are two ways to make ros wines. You can mix a white and red together, which is the cheap way, but its still done. The classier way is known as the saigne method. You crush red grapes, leave the juice on the skins until it just turns pink, then drain it off. The finer ross are made that way. The longer the juice stays on the skins, the darker it becomes. So ros wines can wind up in your glass in colors that range from light salmon pink to a rich translucent ruby. And by now, you know my mantra: drink a lot of wine. Sample widely and find the producers and styles you enjoy most. There are two factors that make ros wines perfect for summer sipping. They go with just about any type of food, except burgers and barbecue. But for sal-ads, light seafood, fish, creamy cheeses and white meats, theyre an excellent choice. And theyre fruit-forward, light on the pal-ate and not the least bit cloying. They are perfect when the outside temperature feels like 102. And today, since ross are so popular, more wineries are turning them out in a wide range of styles, which means theres definitely a wine for everyones taste. Our latest discoveries: Q Ct Mas Ros Aurore 2012 „ From the Languedoc region in the south of France, this wine comes in an oversized one-liter bottle, and is a blend of grenache, cinsault and syrah, which is typical of the area. Its a lovely pale salmon color with a nose of strawberry. Slightly sweet, there are subtle strawberry and cherry flavors on the palate. Great with salads or on its own. WW 90. $12. Q Lawer Estates Rose of Syrah NV „ This wine is very dark pink in the glass, which indicates that the juice soaked in the skins for quite some time. It also means you can expect richer flavors, including watermelon, cherry and melon. Very nice. WW 92. $22. Q Attems Pinot Grigio Ramato 2014 „ OK, so this is not strictly a ros, but ƒ pinot grigio grapes actually have slightly pink skins, and when you let the juice sit on them long enough, the wines takes on a nice coppery (ramato in Italian) color. Youll sense minerality, wet stones and red apple, along with apple and cherry blossom flavors. WS 89. $19. Q Villa Gemma Bianco dAbruzzo 2015 „ I couldnt resist throwing in one refreshing white wine, given the time of year and the outside temperature. Made mostly of the trebbiano grape, which is tradtional in this region, its almost clear in the glass with a nose of mixed tropical fruit. Youll enjoy refreshing flavors of pear, apple and pineapple, and a nice long finish. This would go great with sushi. WW 90. $13.Ask the Wine Whisperer Q. On a wine label, what does it mean when the grapes are listed in a certain order? „ Maria B., Fort MyersA. By law, when a wine consists of a blend of grapes, they must be listed in the order of their proportion. So a label that says grenache, Syrah and mourvedre will have more grenache than syrah, and a lesser amount of mourvedre. Some blended wines dont tell you what the grapes are at all. The label says simply red wine,Ž so you dont know what the heck youre drinking. If the varietal is listed on the label, the wine must consist of at least 75 percent of that grape, and whatever else is blended in may or may not be disclosed. Q „ Jerry Greenfield, The Wine Whisperer, is creative director of Greenfield Advertising Group. His book Secrets of the Wine WhispererŽ is available on Amazon and at winewhisperer.com. jerry GREENFIELDvino@floridaweekly.com phil JASONphiljreviews@gmail.com FLORIDA WRITERSGoing fishing: It’s far more work than playQ A Pioneer Son at Sea: Fishing Tales of Old FloridaŽ by Gilbert L. Voss, edited by Robert S. Voss. University Press of Florida. 200 pages. Hardcover, $19.95. This unexpected gem, a project that had been abandoned for more than two decades, sheds a bright, multi-col-ored light on the fishing industry in southeastern Florida during the 1930s and 1940s. The author, professor of biologi-cal oceanography at the University of Miami and a main-stay of its marine laboratory, had pre-pared it for publica-tion shortly before his death in 1989. The time wasnt right, however, and it ended up in a drawer, where it sat until quite recently. Fortunately, the authors son decided to breathe new life into the project and quickly found success. We are all the ben-eficiaries of the publishers wisdom and of Robert S. Vosss industry, determination and final preparation of the book. Rob Vosss chapter introductions, foreword and afterword create an extremely useful historical and scientific context for his fathers reminiscences, which are in themselves finely crafted narratives of his early adult years „ years spent working the regions fisheries in the hopes of mak-ing a living in that trade. Gil Vosss good-natured tales capture a world already long vanished. He presents a Florida that he knew long before its paving over and the population boom and exces-sive exploitation of natural resources. If you want to learn about the various fisheries, this is the book. If you want the inside story of a fishermans life, this is the place. If you want to understand the passions that drive someone willing to toil for bare subsistence in the chaotic fishing economy, open this book. Fishing is not as simple as casting nets and drawing them in. Its knowing the right net for the fish and the fishery, how to make and repair the nets, and how to use them efficiently. These are not simple matters, as the authoritative and colorful details make clear. The sponge business receives the same kind of vivid discussion. Gil Voss grew up in Lantana. The first 30 years of his life were informed by his direct experience with the Old Florida life that his parents lived. He came to understand and cherish that life and then he watched change and fade away „ if not disappear. His memories of working friendships with colorful characters, told through vivid conversations set on boats and in bars, capture the humor necessary to survive a rough, demanding livelihood. He details the international flavor of the fishing com-munities: Bahamians, Greeks, and even transplanted New Jersey folks (!), all with their special ways of doing business and relating to those around them. Readers will feel themselves sitting in the various kinds of boats used for different kinds of fishing, perhaps wait-ing out a storm or trying to save a loaded net from a shark attack or unex-pected crocodile. When the Great Depression gave way to wartime, Gil Voss joined the United States Coast Guard. A contrast-ing array of stories is drawn from his expe-riences helping secure the Florida coastline from enemy attack. The U-boats were out there, doing a lot of damage to commer-cial shipping „ espe-cially by attacking tankers whose petroleum was needed for Americas war effort. When WWII and Gil Vosss Coast Guard service ended, he took one more stab at making a living as a fisherman. Then, at the age of 30, decided to prepare himself for another life. He entered the University of Miamis new Department of Marine Sci-ence and moved through his bachelors and masters degrees before getting a Ph.D. at George Washington University, where he was entrusted with teaching assign-ments before he was fully credentialed. As a research professor, he became known internationally for his work on cephalo-pods. He also worked doggedly and suc-cessfully for conservation causes. Gil Vosss special strength, evidenced in these memoirs, is the blend of scientific knowledge, real world experience as a working fisherman and his obvious love of nature. The tales in A Pioneer Son at SeaŽ are a real treat, always enter-taining, educational and humorous, too. Rob Vosss glossary helps clarify his fathers sometimes specialized vocabulary, and the chapter notes are particularly well done. You might think that a book of this kind wont interest you. But youd be wrong. The details are fascinating, the lifestyle a series of important lessons. And the storytellers engaging personality makes you hope more of Gil Vosss tales can be discovered.

One favorite: The Arrabbiata flatbread, with Italian fennel sausage, cherry peppers, red onion, marinara sauce, mozzarella and plenty of Parmigiano. 1 TESTA’S PALM BEACH221 Royal Poinciana Way, Palm Beach; 832-0992 or testasrestaurants.com. Testas clearly knows a thing or two about doing things right. After all, the Testa family just closed out its 95th season of serving in Palm Beach.

And while designers may have the skinny on where to buy them, now home-owners can learn how to make an impact with salvaged materials on their own, thanks to cues from Joanne Palmisano. The author is sharing her best suggestions in Salvage Secrets Design & Dcor: Transform your home with reclaimed materials.Ž It contains dozens of clues on how to find treasures at local rebuilding centers, architectural salvage shops and flea markets. Through hun-dreds of photos by the talented Susan Teare, the book is a transformation guide to using materials that once belonged to someone else. Photos include references to lush retail spaces and small details along a journey of 13 success stories that have featured salvaged goods. Best of all, she gets the reader moving with 14 back-of-the-book DIY projects and a glossary of where to find salvaged goods as a valuable resource. In Ms. Palmisanos follow-up to her first Salvage Secrets book, she deepens her expertise to include salvaged accents and accessories and conceptual stage creations for a wide range of spaces and nooks. Her ideas are completely unex-pected and fun, from using bottle caps as a kitchen backsplash to repurposing old bed springs to recycled shipping con-tainers that morph into guesthouses. She also cleverly groups her salvage ideas into styles and rooms to make the envi-sioning process easier and less intimi-dating for homeowners of all tastes and budgets.

4 LUXE LIVING AUGUST 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYThe master of extreme art makeovers BY KELLY MERRITTkmerritt@” oridaweekly.comCollectors try to preserve art, pro-viding a proper environment for their collections. But time has a way of counting their efforts. Thats where experts like James Swope come in. For more than four decades Mr. Swope has walked the halls of museums, regional conser-vation centers, and private conservation laboratories „ having trained in appren-ticeship under Walters Art Gallery Con-servator Emeritus Peter Michaels and a degree program at the Fogg Art Muse-um at Harvard University. Thirty years ago, he founded James Swope Fine Arts Conservation and he remains a profes-sional associate of the American Insti-tute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works. Mr. Swope sees all manner of art in need, from museum-quality works to art discovered in attics to finds from antiques shops. But there are two aspects to the process of bringing a painting back to life. One is that which we call conservation, and what that means is stabilizing what remains of whatever artwork so that it remains stable and secure and is not falling apart. This can include paint flaking and chipping because if you dont do something to fix those, the painting will be lost,Ž he said. Then, there is the restoration, and that is try-ing to bring back the artists original vision of what he or she was trying to do.Ž Restoration might involve stabilizing the flaking paint. But what if the tip of the sitters nose is missing? Filling and inpainting, where he resculpts the missing flake of paint and tint, could be part of that process. Then there is the process of cleaning and var-nishing. A variety of issues can contrib-ute to the erosion of a painting. Cigarette or fireplace smoke, discolored varnish, all of this can take a lot of time,Ž Mr. Swope said. Sometimes, a work looks bad but just needs a good cleaning. People often bring in a painting because something happened to it such as someone popped a hole in it, but often they bring it into me and I see that the painting is just dirty.Ž Paintings get dirty gradually and owners may not even see it occurring. They might bring a painting in for res-toration for a small hole or tear but that can actually save the painting since the dirt and such that occurs over the years is equally destructive.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com AUGUST 2016 LUXE LIVING 5DESIGN MAKEOVER There is much to consider.Take the provincial Italian painting Virgin and Child with St. John,Ž dating from around 1520. Someone had painted over the curtain with black paint „ but the funda-mentals of art restoration rest on three knowledge bases, the artists skills and ability, understanding the artistic chal-lenges an artist faces in work of art, which is the studio art part, and what we expect looking at a picture that is 350 years old,Ž Mr. Swope said. What was the artist doing in that time? How is that painting supposed to look? Why is it falling apart or overpainted, and how do we correct that?Ž Mr. Swope says much of what he does is an understanding of chemistry and physics. Important factors include the role temperature and humidity plays in the condition of the painting and how to use a particular solvent or technique to dissolve one layer and how to protect another layer underneath. One technique might dissolve smoke while another can restore the rest and in many cases, I must use a scalpel to carve one layer of paint, tiny chip by tiny chip to remove that one layer underneath,Ž he said. Because every piece of art has a story, clients usually have a tale to tell about the painting in question. They will talk about their grandfather or finding the painting in the attic, and most of the time they will bring the painting to me,Ž said Mr. Swope, who will examine the painting at his studio at no cost to ascertain whats wrong and what needs to be done about it „ he does charge a nominal fee to travel to a home to examine a painting. I then provide a broad outline of troubles and repair protocol, including a price estimate, and whether it is $100 or $10,000, I need to see it.Ž When the client signs off, the painting has a new home with Mr. Swope for quite a while. The finished product is in the details and the painstaking work takes time. But the results are nothing short of magical.

8 LUXE LIVING AUGUST 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYDESIGNER Q&ADj Vu Design Center and Estate Liquidators offers unique finds T he reasons to shop consignment vary from shopper to shopper, but expert consignment retailer Susan Bender has the best answer: customers who shop consignment get phe-nomenal bargains and discover one-of-a-kind items that are harder to find in a tra-ditional retail store. Indeed, she estimates shoppers can expect to save 50 percent to 75 percent off paying retail if you could even find such items. Ms. Bender took over the estate liquidation business seven years ago, selling everything inside of a house but the house itself. Today she continues to get mer-chandise from 10 to 15 houses each month. She needed an outlet to sell things she couldnt sell in the estate sale (not to be confused with the now-defunct womens clothing store of similar name). She loves nothing more than for her customers to see customers begin the treasure hunt that is the hallmark of consignment shop-ping and has a lifetime of tips to help along the way. Who is your typical customer?Its changing and evolving all the time and now we are seeing younger people as well, digging for treasures, especially young couples furnishing their houses. This is really cool because they love to mix traditional with a more contemporary eclectic mix. And we have just as many men, actually, more men these days than women. How does consignment work?Someone brings merchandise into the store and the store and customer split the consignment sale. We do a 50/50 split. Some consignment store change their consignment as the days pass, but here that doesnt change „ you still get your 50/50 split no matter how long the item has been in the store. What are some tips for consignment shopping? If you see it and you like it „ buy it! Because, it is likely not to be there when you get back. If you like it and fall in love with it, someone else will too. If you dont see something one day, go back frequently because there are always new things to discover. What are some questions one should ask before consigning? Always ask for a contract. Always ask about the split and if that ever changes. Make sure you still own the merchandise after 90 days, not the store. If its furni-ture, you need to know how much it will cost to get it to the store. Most places charge a fee. What would you most like customers to know about your shop? That it is fun and they need to come in. No one is on commission, so we dont pressure customers. We are doing some fundraisers, inviting people to come in and have a glass of wine and appetizers and look around. We also help in design-ing, since we have two designers on staff to help decorate. Whats your favorite home design trend right now and what are you glad to see fall away? Ive been traditional for a long time but I have recently started mixing some mid-century modern things into my home for a very elegant look. I cringe when I see wall units and laminate furniture „ but everything is a cycle and it comes back. FAMILIAR GROUND Susan Bender FLORIDA SUMMERS ARE A BREEZE...

10 LUXE LIVING AUGUST 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYCOVER STORY “One of the most rewarding aspects of working in the field of architecture and design is that no two clients are alike.” — Melissa Guerra, NXG Studio BY KELLY MERRITTkmerritt@” oridaweekly.comA home is where people spend the majority of their income. Its a sanctuary for family members and friends. Most of all, its where home-owners connect with the people in their lives. Long before it was trendy for teams to dominate the house rehab and architectural landscape, the husband and wife team of Noe and Melissa Guerra were laying the foundation for full-service architecture and inte-rior design. They founded NXG Studio (formerly NXG Architecture) in 1993. The Palm Beach County-based duo focuses on residential and commer-cial projects. Mr. Guerra is an archi-tect and Mrs. Guerra is a designer who works with clients to achieve stunning interiors. While the build-ings they complete are inspiration enough, they love working with peo-ple. One of the most rewarding aspects of working in the field of architecture and design is that no two clients are alike and occasionally, we will have clients that simply want to add a new bathroom or expand their kitchen but others need a whole house renova-tion,Ž says Mrs. Guerra. Each brings his or her own unique set of interests whether theyre building a new res-taurant or hotel or house.Ž Though each client is different, the Guerras can apply one-size-fits-all approach to building, especially when it comes to helping homeown-ers prepare for a remodel or new construction. Be as prepared as possible going into the construction process and be confident that each decision you make is exactly what you want because once construction begins, changes can become costly, and most NXG Studio in North Palm Beach celebrates clean lines COURTESY PHOTOS Melissa and Noe Guerra

of all make sure your team is qualified to guide you during the process,Ž says Mrs. Guerra. Ask this question: Are you licensed and do you have references? You cant imagine how many horror stories we have heard from clients who hired the wrong team.Ž The Guerras encourage research „ and lots of it „ before retaining archi-tects and designers. Even at the abstract level, she says, knowing what you want is key to less headache and more hap-piness. Gather clippings, look at Houzz and Pinterest because the more information our clients provide the better we can help them achieve their goals,Ž she says. Case in point: the Guerras birthday cake houseŽ kitchen remodel, which Mrs. Guerra says they pulled off in a very short time. The clients purchased the house as a foreclosure and by the time NXG got involved the kitchen had no floors and no ceiling, so we started working on this project in January 2015 and it was com-pleted in March of the same year,Ž she says. For anyone who has lived through a renovation, especially of a large-scale kitchen, you understand how insane this time frame was, but at the end of the day the homeowners were so happy with the end result. And the Guerras?We were thrilled to have given them their dream kitchen,Ž Mrs. Guerra says. Many of the Guerras clientele travel to South Florida from other places. One of their Canadian clients contacted NXG to dream up their ideal winter home. The team refreshed the unit with a new bathroom, paint, carpet, fixtures, tile and more, but in this case Mrs. Guerra says they were inspired by the clients unique taste in art and furnishings. Their style was eclectic, but they wanted the space to be very comfortable for their family,Ž she says. The mindset of the Guerras Canadian clients plays into a trend the couple is happy to see become popular with homeowners. Sometimes, down times bring about good practices. The current interest toward simplicity while retaining reasonable character, both on the interior and exterior of homes which we see as attributed to the economic downturn in the late 2000s,Ž says Mrs. Guerra. Ten years ago, new homes were being built with an array of accoutrements.Ž That includes fountains, elaborate columns and moldings, faux finishes and heavy furnishings. Although the economy has rebounded for many South Florida homeowners, they love when clients come in with designs on living more simply.
