To RSVP, please call ( 888 ) 412-8141 leslie COMMENTARYNot if, but when It was a rain of biblical proportions, a frog-strangler, the kind of rainfall that would float Noahs boat aloft a mas-sive swell and rising tide of tumultuous waters. The deluge created cataclysmic flooding, the kind of rainfall that can drown thousands of square miles. It was spawned by a lethargic hurricane, suspended for several days over one vast region. No one in living memory has seen or experienced anything like it, surely not in the history of Texas „ except we have. Before Hurricane Harvey pummeled southwest Texas and the Hous-ton metro area with torrential rains, there were its predecessors „ Hurri-cane Andrew (1992), Hurricane Katrina (2010), Superstorm SandyŽ (2013) and the thousand-year rainfall inundating South Carolina (2015) from its coast to its midlands with more than 25 inches of rain. These catastrophic events were all fed by a deep well of tropical moisture flowing across a rising ocean, bleeding from coast to mainland, nudged along by a weather system of hurricane pro-portions, sucking energy from warm seas. Hurricane Andrew, a Category 5 storm, hit South Florida, destroying more than 63,500 homes, damaging 124,000 more and causing $26.5 billion in damages. Sixty-five people died. And who doesnt remember Category 5 Hurricane Katrina? It made landfall in southeastern Louisiana. New Orleans took it on the chin. Floodwaters engulfed the city, destroying its schools and four out of five of its homes. The levees and flood control systems failed that the Army Corps of Engineers built and maintained. The death toll was esti-mated at 1,836, primarily in Louisiana (1,577) and Mississippi (238). More than half who died were elderly. The thousand-year rainfall in South Carolina mirrored in one state what multiple states suffered as Hurricane Sandy strafed the nations northeast coastline. It was a Category 2 storm and the largest hurricane system ever recorded in the Atlantic. It was second only to Katrina in the billions of dol-lars in damages done. An estimated 233 people died. Few who witnessed or experienced these devastating storms have forgotten the human misery and destruction left in their wake. We are seeing it again, this time on the Texas Gulf Coast and in Houston. As I write, Harvey is recoiling from its glacial drift to the warm waters of the Gulf, moving in a northeasterly direction toward the Pelican State. Its been just a year since Louisiana took its last beating. A stalled front dumped over two feet of rain in the central part of the state. Residents are still mopping up. Another onslaught is on the way of torrential rain. These disasters leave behind broken and reeling communities. Recovery will take years. Flooding is pernicious, an evasive and cancerous spoil leaving nothing in its path unscathed. The toxic bile lays waste to houses, businesses, financial institutions and civic infra-structure. Transportation, water, sewer, and electrical systems implode. The wave of destruction suffocates the life communities once knew. People die. But hope survives. Neighbors help neighbors. Thousands of volunteers arrive to help. Things will change. People will recover. But they will never be the same again. In an article by The Washington Post, Brock Long, the current director of the Federal Emergency Management Assistance, and his predecessor, Wil-liam Fugate, both agreed the present state of the nations disaster readiness is inadequate. Long said, Americans tend to get complacent about the possibil-ity of a disasterƒwe have a long way to go.Ž Fugate was unsparing. He said it sucks.Ž They could be talking about Florida. Floridas coastal cities „ Miami and the St. Petersburg/Tampa Bay area, for example „ are extremely vulnerable to catastrophic storms. The state has 1,350 miles of coastline and 2.4 million people and 1.3 million homes planted 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 Climate Central reports. Most coastal residents have no clue about the potential risks of flood-ing and storm surges, which account for most hurricane-related deaths. The states lack of preparedness extends all the way to Tallahassee. Gov. Rick Scott and the states conservative majority refuse to acknowl-edge Floridas vulnerability to a cata-strophic event like Hurricane Harvey. They ignore and are in denial about the threats climate change and sea level rise pose for the state. They do so at our peril. Climate change and sea level rise played a role in intensifying Harvey and extending its awful duration. Texas officials considered the terrible what-ifsŽ associated with Houston tak-ing a major hit from a hurricane. It had barely escaped devastation from past hurricanes equally as dangerous as Har-vey, saved only by the whim of nature. Its vulnerability to catastrophic flood-ing from a perfect stormŽ was hidden in plain sight. A plan of preparedness did not anticipate in advance the future certainty of a hurricane-driven disaster. Florida faces the same inevitability of a perfect storm.Ž We have been given ample warning. It is not a matter of ifŽ but when.Ž Think Houston cant hap-pen here? Think again.

The best blues singers in the world are immigrants because theyve had to leave home and they arent coming back. In that sense, most of us are immigrants. Rich people dont usually sing the blues, or have to. Powerful people dont usually sing the blues, nor can they. People who have never been haunted, persecuted, misunderstood by those who purport to love them, fired, ridiculed, heartbroken, bullied and beaten or outcast for one rea-son or another dont usually sing the blues and dont understand why anybody else should, either. And sometimes even those who should sing the blues dont; theyre too lost. Too busy clinging grimly by their fingernails to the cliff-edge of existence to croak out a tune or remember the words. For them this week, therefore „ all of them and you, too „ let me present some ready-made, ink-on-the-page, South Florida blues for modern times. Carry these words with you. Use them as needed. Suffer as warranted, too „ its a proud, die-hard tradition, after all „ without giving up. An donchu never give up.

Q Stop making excuses for antifa thuggery One of the least safe places to be in Berkeley, Calif., is in the vicinity of some-one holding a No HateŽ sign. So-called anti-fascist, or antifa, activists bearing shields emblazoned with those words assaulted any of the handful of beleaguered Trump supporters they could get their hands on at a small politi-cal rally over the weekend. All in the cause, mind you, of demonstrating their supposed opposition to hatefulness. Too many people were willing to perfume antifa in the wake of Charlottes-ville, where it clashed with Nazi thugs who caused, and deserved, a wave of national revulsion. But Berkeley demon-strates once again the true nature of this left-wing movement, which is thuggish in its tactics and totalitarian in its sensibility. Anyone who at this point makes excuses for antifa „ or worse, justifies it „ is par-ticipating in its moral rot. The antifa goons showed up in force at Berkeley at what had been a small antiMarxistŽ rally of Trump supporters at a public park. Antifa wore its usual fascistic garb of black masks and body armor. They overwhelmed the police who had been trying to maintain order and, hold-ing aloft smoke-spewing flares, chanted, Whose park? Our park!Ž They then treated suspected Trump supporters with all the decorousness of torch-wielding medieval villagers who believed they had stumbled upon a witch. A leader of a pro-Trump group had to run from a mob that pepper-sprayed and beat him, until he was taken into police cus-tody for his own protection. The targets werent Nazis bearing Nazi regalia, but supporters of the duly elected president of the United States. Antifa benefited enormously from the horrific events in Charlottesville. It became Nazis versus the people stand-ing up to the Nazis, and in that for-mulation the people standing up to the Nazis always win. There can be no moral equivalence, we were told, between Nazis and their opponents. But that depends on who the opponents are „ there is a vast difference between peaceful counter pro-testers and violent thugs, even if they are marching on the same side. Bullyboy fascists spoiling for a fight and black-clad leftists looking to beat them up exist on the same moral plane. They both thrill to violence and benefit from the attention that comes from it. They both reject civility and the rule of law that make a democratic society pos-sible. They both are profoundly illiberal. All this was lost in the reaction to Charlottesville. Liberal commentators spread memes comparing antifa to American GIs who stormed the beaches at Normandy. The comparison would be apt if the 1st Infantry Division got together to spend an afternoon beating up fellow Ameri-cans rather than giving its last measure of devotion to breaching Hitlers Atlantic Wall. There will always be goons who enjoy breaking things and hurting people. The real scandal is that otherwise respectable people are willing to look the other way or explain away the violence, so long as its perpetrators are on their side. They are just as cowardly as the mask-wearing antifa thugs who are brave enough to punch and kick people, but not to show their faces. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly roger Wild Bill Belvin gained local and national attention in 1930 by spending a year in the wild of what is now Cape Coral, armed with only two modern conveniences, his spectacles and his false teeth.

That wasnt easy. Baby gates, steps to the furniture and closed doors became the rule in our home. We carried Harper up and down the stairs multiple times a day and lifted her onto the bed at night so we didnt have to worry that she would try to jump up on her own while we were sleeping. She looked disappointed every time we left the house to go on a walk and didnt take her along. And nothing could stop her from twirling and dancing at mealtime. Ensuring that a pet rests for weeks or sometimes months after surgery or medical treatment, such as medication injections for heartworm disease, can be a trial for dog and cat owners. Not only is it impossible to explain to a pet why she cant run and jump the way she does nor-mally, its also a challenge to prevent her from overcoming barriers. Nonetheless, its a must to ensure a safe and effective recovery. Reining in a pets activity level calls for creativity and strict supervision. Heres how to survive, whether your dog or cat must be confined for three days or three months. Baby gates and exercise pens are your friends. Whether his Jack Russell terriers are recovering from knee surgery, eye injuries or bite wounds, Patrick Burns keeps them indoors, confined to a crate surrounded by an exercise pen. The dogs can relieve themselves in the ex-pen and then they are put right back in the crate. For cats, a double show cage is a good choice, says Lorraine Shelton, who breeds Selkirk Rex and Norwegian Forest cats. She likes the double SturdiShelter Pop-Up, which is secure, easy to clean and has good visibility. Its just the right size for a cat or a small dog. Tether your pet. Keeping him on leash and always at my side was the best way to keep my former foster dog Kibo quiet after his injections for heartworm disease. The drug causes the worms to die and disintegrate, so dogs must remain inactive during the three-month treatment period to ensure that no potentially fatal block-age occurs in the pulmonary vessels. Close doors. Harper usually spends her day napping beneath my desk. It was easy to forget she has definite ideas about when bedtime should be. We would go look for her, only to find that she had already jumped on the bed on her own. We had to start keeping the bedroom door closed all the time. Use pet steps to furniture. We placed steps at one end of the sofa and blocked the rest of it with an ex-pen so that Harper could only use the steps to get on it. That worked until she noticed she could jump from the side at the other end. We put an end to that by blocking it with the plastic lid of a storage container. Ban boredom. Work on touch games such as learning to touch your hand or a target stick with his nose, or teach skills such as watch meŽ that dont require any activity. Feed meals inside the crate. To keep your pets brain busy while hes confined, put food in an enrichment toy so he has to do a little thinking to get at it. Be patient! Before you know it, your dog or cat will be ready for action again.

University Press of Florida. 198 pages. Hard-cover, $24.95.This totally engaging, compact treatment of early U.S. film history is packed with infor-mation and a lot of fun. Before Hollywood was crowned the movie capital, St. Augustine was right up there. More than 120 movies were filmed in whole or part in the northeast Florida city, revealing the tal-ents of major produc-ers, directors and actors. The fledging silent film industry made St. Augus-tine sizzle in the winter, when filmmakers and performers escaped the unpleasant New York weather to enjoy them-selves in a town that seemed to have been created to provide the kind of sc enic bea uty cameramen feasted on. Though the span of St. Augustines life as a home to the film indus-try ran from 1906-1926, its heyday was much briefer. Author Thom-as Graham surveys the first 11 years in a sin-gle chapter. The core years were 1912-1919; the last few years of this period under-mined by World War I. There was at least one good year with many productions in the early 1920s, but the fade had begun. New York film industry investors were moving west, as was the talent pool for movie mak-ing. While it lasted, the comings and goings of the film people brought a great deal of excitement to St. Augus-tines residents and visitors. Most of the films needed extrasŽ for crowd scenes and brief walk-on parts. Even more fun than having the camera look your way would be the follow-up thrill of seeing yourself and your fellow townspeople on the screen when the movie was shown. St. Augustinians got a kick from their brush with fame. And the brush with fame included being in the company of notable performers and other celebrity movie folks. You might get to open a door, in real life or screen life, for Ethel Barry-more or Norma Talmadge. You might have to avoid staring too hard at that iconic vamp, Theda Bara. You may have laughed at Oliver Hardy, either on screen or in person. You could mix with, or at least hear gossip about, the heads of studios and their senior staffers „ people who could write stories, design costumes or turn St. Augustine into almost any-place you could imagine. St. Augustines fascinating architecture and its natural beauty „along with its desirable weather and ability to house and feed the film crews and players „ is what drew the studio heads there and kept them coming back. Some even toyed with construct-ing permanent facilities in this most historic city. Names like Thanhauser, Lubin, clair, Path, Edison, Fox and Vitagraph were constantly in the local news. So were esteemed directors, including Edwin S. Porter, Maurice Tourneur, Sidney Olcott and George Fitzmaurice. Business tycoon Henry M. Flaglers Hotel Ponce de Leon was one of sev-eral large structures in Spanish Renais-sance style that, with a bit of movie magic, stood in for exotic locations in Europe, Egypt and Arabia (a nearby island beach took care of the need for desert scenes). The 84 black-and-white photos that Mr. Graham has assembled underscore the versatility of St. Augustine. Its flora and buildings could provide all the exteriors and interiors that any film could need „ with the help of some carpenters and painters, of course. Mr. Graham has provided a scholarly book that is at once informative, authoritative and a lot of fun. Fol-lowing the main body of his study, he presents an alphabetical appendix of movies made in St. Augustine and another list of actors who appeared in these movies. Those who wish to learn more can benefit from detailed chapter notes and generous bibliography. The author, Professor of History Emeritus at Flagler College, lives in St. Augustine and is the author of Mr. Flaglers St. Augustine.Ž Q „ Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, has written 20 books, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. phil GRAHAM art l cm s r, d e t

Kids are the future, but they’re also your here and now. That’s why at the Paley Orthopedic & Spine Institute, we have assembled an elite team specializing in advanced pediatric orthopedic care, from bumps, bruises and boo-boos to serious childhood injuries and abnormalities. Now, the same renowned care enjoyed worldwide by thousands of successfully treated children is available right here in West Palm Beach. Your kids deserve the best care. Your kids deserve Paley Care. You Deserve the Best Care WORLD RENOWNEDPediatric Orthopedic Care gabrielle FINLEY-HAZLE CEO, St. Marys Medical Center HEALTHY LIVINGPreparing children for visits to the doctor As a mother of two elementary school aged children involved in sports and other activities, trips to the doctor are a guarantee for our family. Each of my children reacts so differently when they hear the words doctors appointment.Ž My daughter, who aspires to be a nurse, gets through a visit to the doctors office easily. She is completely fascinated by anything healthcare related and treats each visit as a learning experience. My son, on the other hand, becomes anxious and needs some extra reassurance and explanation. I have found that by prepar-ing ahead of time and speaking with my children about what to expect, we are able to relieve fears so that they can have a positive healthcare experience. In addition to the award-winning pediatric care at the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital, your family can also benefit from our dedicated team of Child Life Specialists. These highly trained profes-sionals use various medical play tactics and kid-friendly language to help children of various age groups understand why they need medical treatment, while also guiding parents on how they can help their child feel more relaxed during a hospital stay. Below are some suggestions from our team that can come in handy for your childs next medical appointment.Helping children understand why they’re seeing a physician Before leaving for the doctors office, explain the purpose of the visit to your son or daughter. Ask them about how they feel about going to the doctor and why they think they need an appoint-ment with the doctor. If the upcom-ing appointment is for a regular health checkup, talk to your child about how the doctor will check their growth and examine them to assess if their body is healthy. Let them know that even most kids in good physical shape go to the doctor for these kinds of visits. It may help to use a doll or teddy bear to show how the nurse will measure their height, take blood pressure or look in their eyes and ears. If you are taking your child to a specialist because of an illness or medical condition, explain in terms they can understand about what will take place during the office visit and exam. Be honest, but not alarmingly so, if there will be any procedure that might be uncomfortable. Children may be able to deal with discomfort more easily if they know ahead of time, and can trust you if you are honest with them. If other relatives or friends have your childs same condition, share that information with your child so that they understand that others have been through the same thing. Let your child know that the doctor is there to help make them feel better and fix any prob-lems „ not hurt them.Because it is important for your child to trust their doctor, choose a pediatrician who understands their fears, relates well to them and communicates in a friendly manner. A good rapport can help mini-mize feelings of embarrassment when the doctor examines your child. Helping parents understand what warrants medical attention Not only is the Palm Beach Childrens Hospital at St. Marys Medical Center committed to healing children in our community, were also committed to educating parents on what resources are available when your child may need them most, and how to help identify a medical condition in time. On Tuesday, Sept. 26, from noon to 1 p.m., Anne Fischer, MD, PhD, regional medical director for pediatric surgery, will present Lumps, Bumps and When Your Child May Need Surgery: What Par-ents Need to KnowŽ at the Mandel Public Library of West Palm Beach. Dr. Fischer will discuss signs and symptoms that par-ents should be aware of that may require medical attention. She also will discuss general guidelines on how to determine if the symptoms your child displays can result in a future surgical procedure. Light refreshments will be served.Space is limited, so please save your seat by calling 888-412-8141. To learn more about the services offered at Palm Beach Childrens Hospital, visit Q

Q Stock your hurricane supply kit. Q Create a checklist of items you will want to take with you if you have to leave. Q Take “before” pictures of your home for insurance purposes. Q Find out the elevation of your home. Q Make sure your street address is clearly marked on your home. Hurricane conditions are possible within the next 48 hours. Q Clear your yard of potential ying debris, including lawn furniture, toys, etc. Q Lower the water level in the swimming pool by one foot. Q Board up windows. Q Gas up the car. Check your oil and tire pressure. Q Get cash. ATMs and banks may not be open after a storm. Q Turn the refrigerator to the coldest setting. Q Store plenty of water. Hurricane conditions are possible within the next 36 hours. Q Gather important documents. Q Finish shuttering doors and windows. Q Evacuate if you are ordered to do so. Q If you’re staying home, designate a safe room. Interior bathrooms or closets on the lowest level with no windows work best. Q Charge cell phones and other devices. Q Stay indoors. Q Stay away from windows even if they’re shuttered. Q Listen to media reports for the latest information. Q Stay inside even if it appears calm. Do not go out until the all-clear is given. Q The longest part of the process, recovery can take weeks. Q Move slowly and cautiously as you survey and clean up. Most injuries take place after the storm. Q Do not use public water until you are noti ed that it is safe. Q Avoid travel if possible. Q Do not connect generators to house wiring. Q Beware of downed power lines, wild animals and even domestic animals that may be frightened or lost. Q Take pictures of damage and contact your insurance agent. When formulating a hurricane plan, make sure it includes all members of the family, including pets. After so many animals were abandoned following Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and Hurricane Charley in Southwest Florida, disaster prepared-ness officials have stepped up measures to help pets and to encourage owners to plan ahead in case a hurricane strikes. Charlotte, Collier, Lee and Palm Beach counties all have emergency shelters for people and their pets, although space „ and therefore, access „ is largely restricted to those in spots where evac-uation is mandatory. Most counties offer just one shelter to take in pets, so its important that pet owners check early and get on a reser-vation list if that is required. If people find they need to go to a county-run pet shelter, they will be required to stay as well and will need to care for their pets throughout the stay. Animals must be current on immuniza-tions and have sufficient food, water and an approved crate. The best option is for people to leave the area and take their pets with them. Dont expect local veterinarians or boarding kennels to accept animals. They will fall under the same guide-lines and conditions as residents. And, should a hurricane strike, they are likely to be without power as well. To prepare their pets for hurricane season, owners should attend to the fol-lowing: Q Vaccinations: Make sure pets are current on these now. It takes a couple of weeks for most immunizations to become protective so its too late once a storm approaches. Q Identification : Put pets county licensing tags on their collars, as well as an ID tag with your phone number. Make sure your address and phone number is current on ID tags. A microchip ID (available through most veterinarians as well as Animal Services), is highly recommended because collars can be lost during storms but the chip will remain implanted and owners can update the company as to their whereabouts. Q Hurricane kit: Gather up pet supplies. (See accompanying segment) Q Medications: Make sure you keep a few weeks worth on hand so you wont have to rush to refill them at the last minute. Q Destination: Secure a place to stay. Pet hurricane kit Q Leash and secure collar Q Pet food (in waterproof containers), enough for at least one week Q Water for one week Q Manual can opener Q Bowls for food and water Q Impact-resistant crate of sufficient size (no soft-sided or homemade models and one for each pet) Q Bedding (blanket or towels) Q Litter, litter box and scoop for cats Q Pets regular medications Q Toys, chewies and other stress relieversQ County license and other identification (microchip IDs are encouraged)Q Proof of vaccinations Q Photo of pet Q Pet first-aid kit Q Grooming items Websites Q The Lee County Domestic Animal Services site has a section dedicated to storm preparedness for pets.

Segregating debris is critical in assisting in the recovery. To help ensure that debris is collected in the most efficient, safe and timely man-ner, we recommend that you follow these simple guidelines when clearing debris from your residential property after the storm. Businesses are required to make separate arrangements for debris clean-up.Normal household garbage These are the materials and perishable items that would be placed out for collec-tion in your weekly trash container. Nor-mal household recyclables are de“ned as materials which are capable of being recy-cled, including newspapers, cardboard, plastic containers labeled Nos. 1 through 7 and containers made of glass, steel and aluminum. The following are not considered normal household garbage: Q Yard debris or trash … Vegetative matter including shrubs, palm fronds, tree trimmings, grass clippings, bushes, leaves, twigs or cut up tree branches. Q Construction/demolition debris … Materials directly relating to construction or demolition of buildings, such as cement, glass, dry-wall, insulation, concrete block, etc. Q White goods … Large discarded appliances, including refrigerators, ranges, washing machines, clothes dryers, water heaters, freezers, microwave ovens, and air conditioners. All items must be empty of all contents. Do not mix the types of debris … There will be separate collections for each and they will be picked up according to priority in the immediate aftermath of the storm. Q First priority … Normal Household Garbage. Place in your regular collection cart container or in heavy duty plastic bags, and place where you would normally locate it for your regular weekly collection. Q Second priority … Yard debris. Small quantities should be prepared as for weekly collection; in containers, bags or bundles of less than 50 pounds. Large quantities of storm related yard debris should be placed alongside the curb, with trees and branches prepared into easily manageable lengths. Do not place near lowhanging objects or around mailboxes, water meters or “re hydrants. Large quantities of storm-related yard debris may be collected using a mechanical grab that will require room to operate. Collection crews will not enter private property to collect debris. Only yard debris directly generated from the storm event will be collected. Land clearing and landscape improvements are not eligible for collection. Debris from these activities will require removal and disposal to be arranged by the property owner at their expense. There will be no collection of large quantities of yard debris on private roads or in gated communities unless properties in these locations are included in a FEMA declaration or where an immediate threat to health and safety exists. Q Third priority … Construction debris, recyclables, white goods, bulk items, electronic equipment, tires and lead acid bat-teries. You will be notified through media when collection of these items will take place. Disposal rules for small quantities of C&D materials vary by location so look for media notices for speci“c guidance as to how best to dispose of these materials in your respective areas. In many areas, small quantities of C&D materials (less than 2 cubic yards) may be placed at the curb alongside of normal household garbage. These materials would generally be in containers and/or bundled, weighing less than 50 pounds each and not exceeding six feet in length. These materials may be collected with the normal household garbage provided that the materials are compliant with your local collection policies and ordinances. Refrigerators, freezers and other appliances must be emptied of all contents prior to collection. Refrigerators and or freezers containing food waste or other rotting wastes will not be collected. Storm debris As the storm approaches and in the immediate aftermath, look for notices in the local newspapers, special bulletins on your local government website, local radio and television channels and other media. During the first 72 hours after the storm has passed, FEMA, Solid Waste Management and the Sheriffs Office will be assessing the damage and road condi-tions to determine when collections can resume. Q Recovery after the stormAfter major storms, lives can change drastically and disasters affect every-one to some extent. Relief supplies and other aid will be arriving as quickly as possible, but it may take several days. Try to remain calm, patient and under-standing. Your attitude affects you and everyone around you. Remember that the longest and hardest part of dealing with a hurricane is the recovery. There may be residual flooding and roads may be blocked for days or weeks, making damaged areas inaccessible. This may mean that you will not be allowed back to your home for days or weeks. Emergency workers want your return home to be as safe as possible and need time to clear safe access and secure haz-ards. Listen to local media for reentry information and do not go into unsafe areas. Drive only if absolutely necessary and avoid flooded roads and washed out bridges. Do not go sightseeing. If you evacuated out of the area, consider staying away for a few extra days. Before you decide to return, consider the following: Q Power will be out for an undetermined period of time. This means no air conditioning, no lights, no refrigeration, no water pump and in many cases no stove. Q Telephone service will be out or limited. This includes 911 calling. Lack of power and damaged facilities will affect both landline telephones and cellular telephone service. Even if your phone works, use it only for emergencies. Q Municipal water supplies may be unsafe to drink without boiling or chemical treatment. Treat all water as unsafe until you are notified that it is safe. Q Prepare an all-hazards supply kit Having a basic survival kit ready to sustain yourself and your family after an emergency is an essential part of preparation. Think first about basic survival needs: fresh water, food, clean air and warmth. Emergency responders may not be able to get to you immediately after a disaster. Being prepared means choosing to be a hurricane survivor. Start by reviewing the lists below. Food needs € Drinking water: 1 gallon per person per day; 3to 7-day supply € Nonperishable food that meets your dietary requirements: 3to 7-day supply € Manual can opener or poptop cans/containers and eating utensils € Juice/soft drinks/instant coffee or tea € Plastic wrap/zip-top bags/garbage bags € Paper plates, cups, aluminum foil€ Cooler for food storage and ice€ Lighter/matches, pots/pans€ Camp stove or grill Personal items € Sleeping bags, pillows, blankets€ Lawn chairs, folding chairs, cots€ Personal hygiene items€ Prescriptions and over the counter medications € Spare glasses, contacts€ Extra hearing aid batteries € Baby/infant needs, such as diapers, formula, extra clothes and more € Rain gear€ Closed-toe work shoes, no sandals Pets and service animals € Water 1 gallon per day for each animal; 7-day supply € Cage or carrier for each animal€ Food and treats€ Toys and comfort items€ Cleaning supplies€ Immunization records, photos Basic safety equipment € Battery or hand-crank radio€ Chargers, batteries, etc., for smart phones and tablets € Flashlights€ Extra batteries € Light sticks to replace candles Miscellaneous items € Spare keys € Important papers€ ID, including drivers license, insurance cards, etc. € Cash, credit cards, coins, checks Medical equipment € Medical equipment and assistive devices € First aid kit€ Medical alert tags or bracelets to identify your disability-related need. Q Agencies and organizations offer emergency help Hindsight is always a dishonest voice for the present. Storms on the west coast have been few since Hurricane Wilma during the 2005 season „ the last major hurricane to affect the Palm Beach Coun-ty area. But no one wants to walk down the street and see fallen trees and power lines scattered along the road, and won-der what to do next. Yet, this scenario is a reality we should prepare for during every hurricane season. Floridians know from experience that neighbors, churches and local businesses come together in unprecedented ways to help with recovery efforts. Neverthe-less, weve compiled some of the con-tact information for the bigŽ organiza-tions that can serve as a starting place for either volunteerism or for your own recovery once the weather system has passed. From reporting downed power lines to whom to call about clean water, canned food and local shelters, these accredited contacts will help with your questions and needs.

Its change that really hurts. Corporate leaders will tell you its the biggest chal-lenge they face today. Con-stant change makes it dif-ficult to remain relevant and to create value for customers. As humans we hate to change,Ž says Andi Simon, Ph.D., the author of On the Brink: A Fresh Lens to Take Your Business to New Heights.Ž Whether its introducing a state-of-the-art computer program or transitioning a company to a wholly new and innovative way of working, she says, Your brain literally creates chemical pain that says, Please stop all that new work.Ž And so, instead of enjoying the challenges that come with trying something SEE DIRECTION, A15 X FAn anthropological approach can help leaders conquer change in their business New directionBUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 7-13, 2017 A14 | WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM


FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 7-13, 2017 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE A15new, we resist. To be sure, our brains are elastic and can, in fact, adapt,Ž Ms. Simon says. But its not a smooth, easy or comfortable process.ŽDealing with challengesBusiness challenges come in many forms, often stemming from external forc-es such as economic crises or macro shifts in consumer behavior. Yet sometimes roadblocks can come from within a com-pany, when comfortable, but rigid patterns prevent the adaptation and change needed to remain competitive. When a business hits a point where big ideas have stalled, sales are in a slump and it feels unable to keep up with quickly evolving trends, the emerging practice of corporate anthropologyŽ can help. Based on the same principles as classic anthropology „ the science of observing humans to understand how they live „ corporate anthropology encourages busi-ness leaders to step outside their day-to-day processes to observe not only how their enterprises operate, but where unmet needs truly exist. The rationale is simple: Your customers, employees and partners cant objectively tell you why they behave in certain ways, but when you view them and your business with fresh eyes as an outsider, its possible to see the opportuni-ties otherwise overlooked. In On the Brink,Ž corporate anthropologist and management consultant Ms. Simon provides a crash course in the game-changing business techniques behind cor-porate anthropology, while giving exam-ples of organizations that have used the method to bounce back from crisis. From a medical center facing multiple years in the red and a rural college battling decreasing enrollment to a large plumbing equipment manufac-turer whose award-winning product just wasnt selling and a major customer care company searching for growth, the sto-ries of seven com-panies struggling to innovate and grow powerfully illustrate the solutions that corporate anthropol-ogy can reveal. EvolutionIts tough enough for the people at the top to think about reworking processes and policies; imagine the difficulties when youre talking about altering the culture of an entire workplace. Companies have cultures, whether they know it or not, Ms. Simon says. Its an amalgam of core values, beliefs and behav-iors that pertain to the business and the way it is conducted. Employees live out that culture every day.Ž And when the corporate culture has to evolve, get ting employees on board can be a challenge. But if company leaders can provide purpose to the changes „ by showing how theyll improve business and create stability after the transition „ they have a better shot at a quicker buy-in. To do that, though, they have to interact with their employ-ees and also get out of the office and wit-ness first-hand how customers use the product or service. Ms. Simon suggests adopting an anthropologists tool kitŽ to: Q Conduct observational research … Con-sider shadowing cli-ents and employees as they use a product or service. Find out what their challenges are, and what trends have them concerned or excited. Q Find customers pain points … What happens when someone contacts the com-panys customer service center? What works and what doesnt? Are emails and phone calls answered? What happens when people visit the website? If respons-es are delayed or unsatisfactory, find out why. Q Use culture probes and storytelling … What are the sto-ries customers and employees could tell if they had a company leaders ear? Put away any defensiveness and just listen. Ms. Simon also advises companies to expand the research role past the executive level. Allow team leaders and others to be a part of the companys new story, she says, and encourage them to visual-ize how they can play new roles in an emerging business environment. Theyll be the energy behind your innovation,Ž she promises. Whether youre searching for a way to revitalize your business or to expand a currently successful operation into new and profitable directions, the strategies outlined in On the BrinkŽ will give you fresh eyes and a fresh approach to achieve meaningful business breakthroughs.About the authorAndi Simon is the founder and CEO of Simon Associates Management Consul-tants.

Q DIRECTIONFrom page 14 SIMON MONEY & INVESTINGFalling prices of corn and soybeans hurting farmers The last four years have been a boom time for the U.S. economy. Weve seen positive GDP growth, a rising stock market, a skyrocketing housing market and rising wages. But unfortunately, one group has not shared in the prosperity of the rest of the county „ U.S. farmers. Since 2013 when farm income peaked at $131 billion, that number has plummeted to half that amount. So why are farmers struggling while the rest of the country is experiencing economic prosperity and what does the future hold for food producers? Producers of commodities, like farmers or miners, often face a catch-22 in their business. When they struggle producing their goods, their costs some-times outweigh their revenues due to lack of productivity. However, when these businesses are flourishing, they often also have problems, because their competitors are experiencing the same success and the market is flooded with that commodity. At that point, supply outpaces demand and per-unit prices drop, cutting margins. This is currently what is happening with agricultural goods. There has been a bumper crop of corn and soybeans over the last four years. Last year the grain harvest was a record 15.2 billion bushels of corn and 4.3 billion bushels of soybeans. This record production has occurred at the same time of waning demand for these crops. Consumers have turned away from corn-based sweeteners like high fruc-tose corn syrup. In addition, people are being advised to limit their intake of carbohydrates, which has limited demand for bread and its primary ingre-dient, wheat. It should be no surprise, then, that the price of wheat has fallen 16 percent. Farmers have temporarily stabilized farm income in 2017 by selling invento-ried grains from their bins as well as the result of higher livestock and milk pric-es. Specifically, there were a few bright spots this year in this sector. Animal protein demand has risen due to popu-lar high protein and paleo diets. Food items like bacon, chicken wings and dairy products have seen rising prices. For example, chicken and hog prices are expected to be up 15 percent this year with cattle prices up almost 6 percent. But despite these pockets of strength, farmers are expected to struggle. The USDA expects median farm household income to be $76,800 in 2017, down almost $5,000 from 2014. And the gov-ernment agency predicts more than half of all farms will actually lose money in 2017 with income being made by non-farm related jobs. Luckily for most farmers, interest rates are low so debt service payments are currently low. If rates do rise, ana-lysts worry that many farms will be crushed by high mortgage and debt pay-ments. Unfortunately, it may take some farms to go out of business to rebalance the supply and demand of most grains, as technological advances in farming enable farmers to continually boost pro-ductivity of existing land. The other wild cardŽ with regard to agriculture is global trade. With President Trump threatening to tear up NAFTA, many worry that corn exports to countries like Mexico can be affected. In addition, other sig-nificant importers of U.S. agricultural products include Korea and Japan, which may be pulled into an armed conflict with North Korea. A drop in imports from these nations could make a bad situation for U.S. farmers that much worse. Q eric

This is truly a quiet revolution. The battery-powered Chevrolet Bolt turns on in near silence, and it stays that way for its full 238-mile range. It does all this without shouting its electric vehicle superiority. From the outside, the Bolt is absolutely a Chevrolet. It looks like the halfway point between the compact Sonic and Trax crossover. And while its mildly related to those, the Bolt has been spe-cifically designed to cheat the wind with aerodynamic panels. Plus, the tall, wedge-shaped style is used to maximize space without leaving a large footprint. Inside, a two-tone gray on the seats, door panels and dash is an attractive and uniform look „ so its good that this is the only one available (its leather in the Premier trim.) The Bolt has the right standard features like automatic climate control, plenty of USB hookups and a 10-inch infotainment touchscreen. For the driver, the gauge package with the electric distance readout is the best around. GM figured out that part of the anxiety over how much range a driver has left comes from the uncertainty of conditions. After all, its a bit of a gut punch to watch the cars distance go from 100 miles to 90 miles just by turn-ing on the air conditioner. But the Bolt gives a high, low and real-time range updated for battery power and usage „ it eliminates surprises and makes this electric car feel less tethered to a cord. In fact, Chevrolet is quick to point out that the Bolt has a $750 DC fast charging option. It can yield 90 miles of range within 30 minutes of charging. And there are enough of these CSS fast charging stations along the I-75 and I-95 corridors to make it from Naples or Miami to I-10. This kind of interstate trip would only average about 45 mph, but were marking the first time that an EV has a real plan for road trips without running out of juice. In reality, the best use for the extended range is still rooted in the urban freedom it provides. For someone who commutes less than 20 miles, the Bolt can deliver the convenience of plugging in on Sunday night then having enough electricity to last the workweek. And unexpected school pickups or business trips dont cause nervousness. More than just good range, the Bolt is fun to drive. The battery pack is located in the floor, which gives it a great center of gravity. Plus, the steering is sharp. The instant torque of an EV gives it a sports car-like acceleration from a standstill, and the 200 hp AC motor is one of the most powerful around. So for those times when drivers are feeling more frisky than efficient, the Bolt can be quick and nimble both in town and on the highway. This kind of electric car freedom starts at $37,495, but its closer to a $30K vehicle after its tax credit. That money buys everything from a Mazda Miata to an EcoBoost equipped Ford F-150. But those are unfair comparisons. The allure of the Bolt lies in its technol-ogy. To simply just look at what else is available for the money is like mention-ing that a Seiko or Fossil can easily be obtained for the same price as an Apple Watch. Within the electric car family, the Bolts price falls between the Nissan Leaf and the BMW i3. The Chevy feels more advanced than the cheaper Japa-nese car, but it cant match the European sophisticated feel of the more expensive German. And neither one of the competitors can topple the Bolts range practicality. The real challenge comes when the new Tesla Model 3 comes online. Its targeted to have within 20 miles of the Bolts range and possibly cost less. And Nissan will be back with a new Leaf very soon. Thats the speed of technology. The Chevrolet Bolt is an amazing high-tech leapfrog that takes an extremely com-plex setup and makes it as versatile to use as any other gasoline-powered car. Still, there is the prospect of something new on the horizon. Just like waiting for the next iPhone, the EV game is about weighing the tech-nological marvel thats available right now versus the gossip of the next big thing. The difference with the Bolt is its a tough car for a buyer today to regret tomorrow. After all, even as the next all-electric car advances the market further, its hard to be disappointed with the first budget-minded EV that only needs to be plugged in once a week. Q BEHIND THE WHEELBolt offers 238 miles to a charge, and it’s fun to drive myles

Mr. Busch wrote and starred in the film versions of his plays Psycho Beach PartyŽ and Die Mommie Die,Ž for which he won the Special Jury Prize for Performance at the Sundance Film Festival in 2003. In 2016, his cabaret show, The Lady at the Mic,Ž premiered at Jazz at Lincoln Cen-ters American Songbook series. Gary Cadwallader, director of education and community engagement for Dramaworks, told the press, Out-Stage@PBD is part of our vigorous effort to reach new audiences in ways that not only entertain them, but engage and inspire and connect with them.Ž For this show, Mr. Busch will perform a concert thats a lively mix of songs and stories.

COLLECTORS CORNER Of sand, seashells and memories scott SIMMONS Bought: Naples Estate Liquidators, 949 Second Ave. N., Naples; 676-8275. Paid: $45 The Skinny: Id sworn off buying more Cambridge Crown Tuscan glass „ I have too much, but I love the shell motif that adorns so much of it. This bowl is especially pretty, with lots of fire,Ž or opalescence. I love the way it glows, and its both pretty and elegant. Cambridge made its Crown Tuscan pink color from 1932 to 1954. I especially love the Art Deco pieces and the nudes made in this glass. The quality is wonderful and the glass reminds me of a time when even factory-made pieces had lots of hand finishing. Q THE FIND: A Crown Tuscan glass shell bowl by Cambridge Glass Co. The water was murky the afternoon I drowned. Obviously, I didnt drown, but I was convinced I had drowned. Fortunately, my dad jumped in „ wallet, watch, shoes and all „ to rescue me when a wave swept me away from a boat ramp in Bonita Springs. The water was murky and I remem-ber tumbling for an eternity that probably lasted for all of a few seconds. At 2, I was too young to be embarrassed, but the event left its mark on me, and I was ter-rified of the water for a time. I eventually got over my fears and loved to visit Fort Myers Beach, which had a funky vibe in the 60s and 70s. Wed leave the house around 10 or so on a Saturday or Sunday morning „ I remember my mother driving about eight of us in my dads Suburban, the vehicle bucking at stops and starts because she had not mastered its clutch. At the beach, we drove through a coral-rock arch and crossed Matanzas Pass via a swing bridge to get to the beach. That 1920s bridge sometimes stuck, forcing motorists to turn around and drive all the way down the barrier island to get back to the mainland. For a small kid, old Fort Myers Beach was a magical place. You could walk along the pier and for a nickel or a dime, you could use a telescope to peer far off into the Gulf of Mexico, or look up and down the beach. There were no high rises „ only cottages, mom-and-pop motels and a trailer park or two. Even then, the Red Coconut played host to RVs and campers and the occa-sional Airstream trailer. I laugh to think FAMILY PHOTOScott Simmons’ grandmother, Kathryn Bolender, poses on the Fort Myers Beach pier around 1960. f FAMILY PHOTO that before there was the Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina, there were the Pink Shell cottages „ pastel-tinted stilt houses that lined the shore. And there was plenty of shelling. You could walk along the waters edge and see the tiny coquinas glistening in the sunlight. Sand dollars washed onto the beach and soon were bleached by the sun. Iridescent stiff pen shells „ we called them turkey wingsŽ „ sparkled amid the dried seaweed along the white-sand shore. But not all creatures along the beach were dead. During one visit, a group of anglers struggled to reel in a stingray that fought them from underneath the pier. Another time, I remember trying to take home a horseshoe crab, only to be told by my great-grandmother that it was cruel. What would your Sunday school teacher say?Ž Grandma Gladys asked. I grudgingly returned the ancient creature to the water and learned that some things are best left to memory. Q

B10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 7-13, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYwant to keep this lighthearted preview handy to know what to look for. Sept. 8ItŽ … Im not sure whats scarier: the return of Stephen Kings shape-shifting clown who terrorizes kids, or the fact that the movie is two hours and 15 min-utes. Sept. 15Mother!Ž … In this thriller from director Darren Aronofsky (Black SwanŽ), a married couple (Jennifer Law-rence and Javier Bardem) is tested when another couple (Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer) visits. I guess the visitors never heard Benjamin Franklins saying about fish and houseguests smelling after three days. Sept. 22Battle of the SexesŽ … Steve Carell and Emma Stone play Bobby Riggs and Billy Jean King in the lead up to their 1973 tennis grudge match. Yes, this is the first time tennisŽ and grudge matchŽ have been used in the same sentence. Kingsman: The Golden CircleŽ … Colin Firth is back from the dead in this sequel to the 2014 hit Kingsman: The Secret Service.Ž This time theres an American twist on things with Chan-ning Tatum, Julianne Moore and Halle Berry also starring. The LEGO Ninjago MovieŽ … You wouldnt think a LEGO ninja movie would be good, but remember the first two LEGO movies were surprisingly good. In other words: This is going to be good.Sept. 29American MadeŽTom Cruise plays a drug runner for the Medellin Cartel and a CIA infor-mant, which makes you think theres no way his character should make it out alive. FlatlinersŽ … Remember the 1990 original with Kiefer Sutherland and Julia Roberts? Good. Re-watch that instead. Oct. 6Blade Runner 2049Ž … Harrison Ford returns and Ryan Gosling takes the lead in this sequel to the 1982 cult classic. There are seven versions of the original, so Im going to wait until at least the third or fourth version of this one before I bother. The Mountain Between UsŽ … Kate Winslet and Idris Elba star as strangers trapped atop a freezing mountain after a plane crash. I dont understand the title. If theyre trapped together on top of the mountain, the mountain isnt between them, its below them, right?Oct. 13Goodbye Christopher RobinŽ … Bet you didnt know Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, et. al., were created by depressed WWI veteran A.A. Milne (Domhnhall Gleeson) as he tried to connect with his son Christopher. The question is: Did you want to know that? MarshallŽ … Chadwick Boseman, who recently played Jackie Robin-son, James Brown and the Black Panther, stars in this biopic about the first African-American Supreme Court Justice, Thurgood Marshall. If nothing else, Mr. Boseman is showing his range. BreatheŽ … Robin (Andrew Garfield) and Diana (Claire Foy) are a loving couple who dont let his polio prevent them from enjoying their lives together. Its directed by Andy Serkis.Oct. 20WonderstruckŽ … Julianne Moore stars in a dual role in director Todd Haynes (CarolŽ) latest, a drama that shifts between 1927 and 1977 and is sure to be a stylistic gem.Oct. 27SuburbiconŽ … George Clooney directs Matt Damon and Julianne Moore (yes, her again) in this home invasion dramedy „ because nothing says ha-ha!Ž like being terrorized by a stranger in your home. Professor Marston & The Wonder WomenŽ … Based on a true story, Luke Evans, Bella Heathcote and Rebec-ca Hall play parts of the love triangle that led to the creation of Wonder Woman. Somebody shouldve told the studio that a period piece drama is not the way to shamelessly capitalize on one of the biggest hits of the year.Nov. 3Thor: RagnarokŽ … The bad: Thor (Chris Hemsworth) cut his hair and lost his hammer. The good: Cate Blanchett is the villain, and the trailers promise a playful tone and a lot of Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). The Man Who Invented ChristmasŽ … Dont be fooled by the title, which should really be The Inspira-tions for Charles Dickens to write A Christmas Carol.Ž A Bad Moms ChristmasŽ … The bad moms (Mila Kunis, Kathryn Hahn and Kristen Bell) have their own bad moms (Christine Baranski, Susan Saran-don and Cheryl Hines) come to help ruin Christmas.Nov. 10Daddys Home 2Ž … Good dads (Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell) wel-come bad dad (Mel Gibson) and overly affectionate dad (John Lithgow) to town for Christmas. Will there be any peace, love and understanding this holiday season? Murder on the Orient ExpressŽ … Director Kenneth Branaghs all-star cast for this adaptation of the Agatha Christie novel includes Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Judi Dench and many more. Its one of the greatest mystery stories ever written, so in fear of spoilers be sure to avoid the internet for the next 2 months.Nov. 17Justice LeagueŽ … OK, Justice League.Ž Wonder WomanŽ just saved your fledgling DC Comics Extended Universe, so dont screw it up by being all dark and moody and blurry like Bat-man v. Superman.Ž WonderŽ … Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson play parents who send their son (Jacob Tremblay), who has a distorted face, to mainstream school for the first time when he gets to fifth grade. Nov. 22CocoŽ … This is the second Pixar release of 2017 after Cars 3Ž; the only other time the studio released two mov-ies in one year was 2015, when we got Inside OutŽ and The Good Dinosaur.Ž Lets see if this year is as hit-and-miss as 2015 was. Death WishŽ … Bruce Willis plan to make the world dumber by watching his movies is in full force with this remake.Dec. 1The Disaster ArtistŽ … The RoomŽ (2003) has earned a reputation as being spectacularly, stupendously terrible. Actor/director James Francos The Disaster ArtistŽ is about the making of The Room.Ž Early buzz suggests its spectacular.  Wonder WheelŽ … Woody Allens latest follows a bored 1950s Coney Island wife (Kate Winslet) who develops a huge crush on the hunky new lifeguard (Justin Timberlake), only to have her husbands (Jim Belushi) daughter (Juno Temple) become competitionŽ for him. Lets face it: This is what Woody Allen does best. Count me in.Dec. 8All the Money in the WorldŽ … In Rome in the early 1970s, Italian kid-nappers abduct the grandson of the richest man in the world, John Paul Getty (Kevin Spacey). Director Ridley Scott (The MartianŽ) is underrated as a dramatic filmmaker, and with a cast that also includes Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams, this is one to look forward to. The Shape of WaterŽ … During the Cold War, a mute woman (Sally Hawkins) discovers a secret government experiment. For as creative and vision-ary as Guillermo Del Toro (Crimson PeakŽ) is as a director, hes terrible at naming his movies. Dec. 15Star Wars: The Last JediŽ … Also known as Episode VIIIŽ in the Star Wars saga, and the last time were going to see Carrie Fisher as Leia. Some peo-ple think it might do OK at the box office.Dec. 20Jumanji: Welcome to the JungleŽ … Kind of odd to name this remake after a Guns N Roses song, but hey, it stars The Rock, and who doesnt like The Rock?Dec. 22Pitch Perfect 3Ž … This time our favorite a cappella group goes on a USO tour to perform for the troops.

Military Trail, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410 Just north of PGA Blvd. on Military Trail LATEST FILMS‘Wind River’ ++ Is it worth $10? Yes The Wind River Indian Reservation is a terrible place to call home. In Wind River,Ž all the locals hate it. Its cold, iso-lated, unforgiving and horribly dull. Its also, through the eyes of writer/director Taylor Sheridan, a pretty effective set-ting for a murder mystery. Jeremy Renner stars as Corey Lambert, a hunter/tracker in this remote and frigid Wyoming territory. When working in the vast mountainside, he discovers the body of Natalie (Kelsey Asbille), a local teen whose father (Gil Birmingham) is an old friend of Coreys. With the well-meaning tribal police, led by its chief (Graham Greene), of little help, FBI Agent Jane Banner (Elizabeth Olsen) enlists Coreys assistance to find out who raped and murdered Natalie. Jane isnt fresh out of the academy the way Clarice Starling was in The Silence of the Lambs,Ž but she might as well be. Shes from Fort Lauderdale, was stationed in Vegas and shows up in Wind River wearing a thin jacket and heels. Later she gets maced while con-fronting a suspect, and after that gets a rude surprise while knocking on a door. Shes competent, but this is all new for her, and one of the appeals of the film is watching her navigate this unfamiliar territory. Really, though, its Mr. Renners movie. His Corey is an emotionally broken man whos excellent at what he does and who uses this expertise to maneuver as needed to find answers. At some points it might come a bit too eas-ily for Corey, but because hes a sympa-thetic figure and we like the chemistry he shares with Jane, the story keeps us engaged. Until it doesnt.If the first two-thirds of Mr. Sheridans (Hell or High WaterŽ) film pro-vide a good story and drama, the last third falls apart. The villains are intro-duced late, the resolution is unsatisfying and the ending is overall anti-climactic. At one point Corey refers to a character as dying with a whimperŽ; the same could be said of the movie. Still, there are enough positives to make it marginally worth watch-ing, including impressive cinematogra-phy by Ben Richardson (Beasts of the Southern WildŽ) and a musical score by Nick Cave and Warren Ellis thats appropriately ominous without being overbearing. There are also some nicely acted individual scenes, including a law enforcement standoff and a flashback to the night of the rape. Crime-driven, snow-covered movies like this are inherently fascinating. FargoŽ is the best of its kind, but there also are Snow AngelsŽ and A Sim-ple Plan,Ž to name two more. Theres something about the harshness of the elements reflecting the bitter cruelty of the story that often allows the films to really click. Wind RiverŽ might not click as much as it should, but it uses this appeal in the best ways possible. Q dan >> “Wind River” was shot on location in Park City, Utah, which is home to the Sundance Film Festival. The movie made its world premiere at the festival in January this year. FILM CAPSULESThe Only Living Boy in New York +1/2 (Callum Turner, Pierce Brosnan, Kate Beckinsale) In his early 20s and aimless in New York City, Thomas (Mr. Turner) sleeps with his fathers (Mr. Brosnan) mistress (Ms. Beckin-sale) and ends up even more confused about life. The ending is decent, but this is the type of indie film thats full of high-minded ideas that never amount too much. Rated R.The Trip To Spain ++1/2 (Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Claire Keelan) Friends and comedians Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon play ver-sions of themselves as they sample fine dining and tourist attractions throughout Spain. Most of it is good conversation thats reasonably con-sistently funny, though it does get a bit too chatty for its own good at times. Not Rated: Adult themes. Logan Lucky +++ (Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Daniel Craig) The Logan siblings (Mr. Tatum, Mr. Driver, Riley Keough) and career criminal Joe Bang (Mr. Craig) plan to rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway during the biggest race of the year. Its a fine return to form for director Steven Soderbergh (Oceans 11Ž) and is full of cameos to keep you smiling. Rated PG-13. Q

The art involves fresh flowers, pretty soaps, scented candles and show towels. The science involves enabling potential buyers to envision living there. Its very interesting how the mind works,Ž said Marta Camargo, founder of Palm Beach Staging & Designs. In an empty room, you cannot see the couch, and you cannot see the bed. Its a problem right there because you cannot see the concept.Ž Ms. Camargo has mastered the craft of turning a house for sale into a home to be envied. She stages residences from Manalapan to Juno Beach to Jupiter, providing luxury furnishings, rich finishes and stun-ning accessories aimed at engaging everyone who walks through the door. Ninety-nine percent of the time, the house sells within two months,Ž she said. The Realtors love it.Ž The owners love it, too.Its just like on the HGTV show „ they walk in, and they cry,Ž Ms. Camargo said. Palm Beach Staging & Designs transforms the smallest of spaces, like a loft or a studio, to the biggest of abodes, like a 5,800-square-foot home on the island. I reinvented the entire house,Ž Ms. Camargo said of the six-bed-room, 6-bathroom estate. She added alluring lighting, hung wall dcor and made a statement in the master suite with a dazzling duvet cover. I go all the way,Ž Ms. Camargo said. After the job was completed, the family hinted at a change of heart. Marta Camargo opened Palm Beach Staging & Designs in 2014 after a career in event planning and marketing.

She did the downstairs of a 5,200-square-foot home on the Intra-coastal Waterway in a transitional style. The motif mixes contemporary with traditional and offers a broader appeal. That combination is safe, and you have tons of options to mix and change things,Ž Ms. Camargo said. Its tempt-ing to do something new, something fresh, something modern, but you have to try to target all the clients.Ž She placed a farmhouse table in the kitchen and elegantly set the entire thing. I wanted people to see all the details,Ž Ms. Camargo said. During a showing, she arranged an extra staging of an Italian dinner, put-ting boxes of pasta, jars of tomato sauce and bottles of wine on the counter and playfully laid out an apron. If you take all that away, and you walk into that house, you might like it, but you dont really see yourself living there,Ž Ms. Camargo said. Its a visual thing.Ž Sometimes, a house is so inspiring it sells as is. We have done that a couple times, where they take everything,Ž Ms. Camargo said. That, to me, is the suc-cess of staging. It works.Ž The Brazil native, who speaks four languages and boasts a bachelors degree in international business from Rochester Institute of Technology in New York, opened Palm Beach Staging & Designs in 2014 after a long career as an event planner and a marketing manager. I always loved interior decorating,Ž Ms. Camargo said. I always loved any-thing to do with the home.Ž Her father was a builder, so she grew up around construction sites. Thats how I was raised,Ž Ms. Camargo said. I even love the smell of cement.Ž A friend knew Ms. Camargo had an eye for design and asked her to remod-el her Loxahatchee River home. She took on the 2,600-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bathroom job, converting an older place with a common and plain West Indies look into a country-French environment with cool, coastal charm. It turned out amazing,Ž Ms. Camargo remembered. She said, You are in the wrong business „ you have to start your own. Since then, Ive just been very, very, very lucky.

He bought small apartments and modest homes in South Beach and fixed them up, then did the same thing in Flamingo Park and Prospect Park, two historic districts in West Palm Beach. He started collecting Art Deco objects to fill them, hunting the row for inspiration. The inventory coming out of these homes „ it lands in these stores,Ž Mr. Casas said, referring to Palm Beach estate auctions and private sales. Then it goes through a cycle.Ž A terra-cotta sculpture of the Greek god Orpheus that now sits in the gal-lerys garden room came full circle.

FLORIDA WEEKLY LUXE LIVING 7 LUXE GETAWAYParrothead playground even appeals to those who aren’t Jimmy Buffett fans BY MARY THURWACHTERmthurwachter@” oridaweekly.comIn Florida, there are scores of spots where you can find frozen concoctions to help you hang on, tourists covered in oil, and where you can, indeed, smell shrimp beginning to boil. But at Mar-garitaville Hollywood Resort, you can find all three „ and so much more. The $175 million Jimmy Buffettthemed 349-room, 17-story resort opened in late 2015 as the centerpiece of a revitalization along Hollywood Beach. Built on the site of the former Holly-wood Beach Casino, it is the first Mar-garitaville resort (there are others in Key West, Pensacola, Biloxi, Miss., Ten-nessee, the Cayman Islands, St. Thomas and Puerto Rico) to achieve the AAA Four Diamond ranking. In addition to its eight bars and restaurants (be sure to indulge in a slice of Key lime pie during your visit „ it is divine!), Margaritaville has 22 cabanas and three pools, including a lagoon pool especially popular with families, and pools more geared to grown-ups like the rooftop pool with a License to Chill Bar. The beach itself is a huge draw, of course, but guests also are drawn to the FlowRider „ a surfing simulator, shops and restaurants along Hollywoods icon-ic Broadwalk and the city band shell, which provides concerts five nights a week. Paddleboard, kayak and bike rentals are available, too. When we visited, midweek before school began, the resort was packed with families. But that shouldnt scare adults away. There is much to do away from the kids and ample space to do absolutely nothing, if that is your preference. Youll discover a no worriesŽ vibe and the feeling of getting away for it all as soon as you walk in the lobby, where homages to Mr. Buffett can be found at every turn „ from the largest ever margarita glass chandelier to a gigantic flip-flop sculpture to some of Mr. Buf-fetts personal surfboards. Mr. Buffett has been known to make surprise visits, resort officials said. The Maestro of Margaritaville performed a concert at the resort when it opened almost two years ago. You dont need to be a Parrothead to revel in the fun at Margaritaville, but if you are, youre gonna love it even more. All guests are granted a license to chill upon arrival. Q Margaritaville Hollywood Beach Resort is at 1111 N. Ocean Drive in Hollywood. There are 349 beachy luxe guest rooms and suites, plus three pools, tness center, spa and eight restaurants and bars. Nightly rates start at $209, plus a nightly resort fee of $29 to cover basic wireless internet service, access to tness center and classes, two beach chairs and one umbrella, in-room coffee and bottled water, and local calls. Overnight parking is $30, or $35 for valet parking.
