Back then, women earned only 59 cents for every dollar a man earned. More than 50 years have passed. Call me impatient, but it seems like 50-plus years ought to have been enough time to close and end the wage disparity associat-ed with womens wages. But, no, it wasnt. The latest study from The Womens Policy Research Institute reports: In most cases, women, in comparison to men, earn about 82 percent of the amount a man grosses, based on a full-time weekly pay scale.Ž The earning disparity is greater for women of color. Says the report, ƒblack women earn about 68 percent of what white men typically make, while Latino women earn 62 percent compared to white men.Ž The numbers in Florida are similar, although slightly better overall. Women who hold a year-round, full-time job make 87 cents for every dollar made by men. Black, Hispanic and Asian women work-ing full-time and year-round do more poorly. For every dollar made by men, they make 61 cents, 60 cents and 79 cents, respectively. The cumulative effect of the wage disparity is significant. It represents in Flor-ida a loss of income to women and their dependents of at least $5,500 annually, and its worse for women of color. It isnt just a smaller paycheck. These lost earnings could be used for house payments, car payments, tuition, doctor bills, new shoes, braces, food on the table „ you name it. Progress has been made. But think of all the time in the bottle that has been consumed by efforts to eliminate the pay inequities women workers experience. If you were a woman of childbearing age in 1963 (when the Equal Pay Act became law), you or a friend now may have grown daughters who are now raising daughters of their own. They are a single generation among multiple generations of women that suffered disparagement of their worth and value because of their gender. That ancestral tree of dissed females probably includes Millennials thrice-great-granny, their twice-great-granny, their great-gran-ny, just plain granny and their own mom. Thats a lot of greats who didnt merit the benefit of fair and equitable pay as compared to what the menfolk earned in occupations historically denied to women. Jobs deemed suitable only for women narrowed their opportunity and excluded them from occupations requiring large numbers of workers. Wise men mans-plainedŽ this away as necessary and appro-priate. Women did not have the stamina, strength, temperament, intellectual capac-ity, skills and/or qualifications. They had babies, meals to cook, houses to clean and husbands to look after. Men were men and women were their subordinates. It was once inconceivable that women could be lawmakers, doctors, lawyers, professors, accountants, business owners or even secretaries „ now its software engineers, scientists and CEOs of major companies. Occupational segregation of women in the workforce remains one of the most salient features of the U.S. Labor market and it is a major cause of the womens wage gap. Only by dealing with both issues can you deal with either. The Institute for Womens Policy Research reports women made substantial inroads into predominantly male occupa-tions in the 70s and 80s. But progress completely stalled following the mid-90s. No significant milestones have been made toward closing the wage gap since 2007. The American Association of University Women warns that if the pace of change remains what it was between 1960 and 2015, women wont reach pay equity with men until 2059. Worse, if yesteryears glacial progress further stalls going forward, womens pay equity with men will not be reached until 2152. Ye gods. So, enter Ivanka Trump. She is a senior adviser to and daughter of President Trump. She embraced the cause of pay equity early on in her fathers admin-istration and took to the national stage on behalf of its support. She declared, Women deserve equal pay for equal work.Ž Even the liberals cheered. But not Daddy. Trump is halting equal pay data collection that requires major corporations to confidentially report to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commis-sion (EEOC) information about employee compensation, by job category, sex, race and ethnicity. The political tactic is like President Clintons Dont ask. Dont tellŽ maneuver. Or asking if a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? The Trump version goes like this: If the government doesnt ask companies for data by job category, sex, race and ethnic-ity, and if companies dont disclose data to government that reveals a pattern and practice of occupational segregation and wage discrimination, will the government know whether companies practice occu-pational segregation and wage discrimina-tion? The answer seems obvious but not to Ivanka. She demurred without protest to the administrations decision to stop collecting data. Said she: The proposed policy would not yield the intended results.Ž Then silence. It was Ivankas brief but spectacular moment of abandoning working women and the pay equity they deserve.

With a habitually fulminating Donald Trump, this question has assumed unprecedented urgency „ for commu-nication is vital to a presidents job. It should persuade, set an elevated tone, voice the countrys values „ and, at critical times, uplift us and heal us. But with few exceptions, Trump fails these tests. This communication has two aspects „ the medium and the style. Both have evolved with technology and are interrelated. Different media are more conducive to different styles and style influences the medium chosen. From lecterns to radio to TV to tweets, the dominant medium of pres-idential communication has changed with technology and our presidents. To communicate appropriately, a president should have eloquence, digni-ty, knowledge and an ability to connect with diverse people. Some presidents have advantages in only certain areas, which affects the medium they choose „ for each medium has strengths and weaknesses, which can magnify those of its user. Abraham Lincoln might have done poorly on TV, due to his homeliness and high-pitched voice. But he shone with long, carefully reasoned speeches. On radio, Franklin Roosevelt had a reas-suring voice. And on TV, John Kennedy was telegenic and cool. Tweeting is a modern communication mode, as Trump says. While it pre-cludes meaningful comments on com-plex issues, it could focus attention on more deliberative messages. Yet Trump is stuck mostly in this mediums shortcomings. He may think it amplifies his strengths but it actually showcases his weaknesses of petulance, impulsiveness and superficiality. While any medium can have an insightful or insipid content, all media are not equal for all messages. The question is: Whats the best medium for a certain message? If the message is shallow, bombastic or childish „ which isnt presidential „ tweets suffice. If its nuanced and thoughtful „ and there-fore presidential „ print, TV or a tradi-tional speech is better. Trumps reliance on tweets raises a concern. Does this debasement of dis-course reflect deficiencies in the Ameri-can public: an inattention or inability to think deeply? Many people arent like that. But unfortunately, a substantial number apparently are „ and thats distressing. Interacting with media differences are differences of style. We now see a chasm between mature and juvenile communication. Trumps pathetic rants overflow with lies, glee-ful insults and narcissism. Obsessed with branding, he uses oneor two-word taunts, such as fake newsŽ or witch hunt,Ž for the brand he wants to affix and then repeats them endlessly, based on the propaganda maxim that if you hammer falsehoods enough, some people „ certainly the gullible ones „ will believe them. Presidents naturally have distinct communication styles, which they must adapt to each medium. Yet there should be boundaries of truth, morality, rationality and simple decency. These parameters can accommodate a range of styles, but prejudice-stoking demeanors, such as Trumps, which hearten hate groups, are far beyond any tolerable limits. Ultimately, presidential style is not simply a matter of aesthetics. The weight of the presidency is such that style shapes substance „ for style can determine whether that substance is intelligent or incendiary. Tweets and other social media wont vanish any more than radio or TV. The challenge is how to use all media responsibly, with serious style, espe-cially at the presidential level „ where so much is at stake. And that challenge has grown as today the bully pulpit is defiled by a blatant bully.(Roger Buckwalter is a retired editorial page editor of The Jupiter Courier.) Trump gets DACA right Even in our divided politics, it should be a matter of consensus that the presi-dent of the United States cant write laws on his own. Thats what President Barack Obama did twice when he unilaterally granted amnesties to swaths of the illegal immi-grant population. The courts blocked one of these measures, known as DAPA, and President Donald Trump has now begun the process of ending the other, DACA, on a delayed, rolling basis. In a country with a firmer commitment to its Constitution and the rule of law, thered be robust argument over how to deal with the DACA recipi-ents „ so-called DREAMers who were brought here by their illegal-immigrant parents as children „ but no ques-tion that Congress is the appropriate body for considering the matter, not the executive branch. Instead, President Trump is getting roundly denounced by all his usual critics for inviting Congress to work its will. His decision is a relatively modest way to roll back what is clearly an extralegal act. The president goes out of his way to minimize disruption for current DACA recipients. The administration will stop accepting new applications for the pro-gram but will continue to consider two-year renewals for recipients whose sta-tus is expiring between now and March 5. This gives Congress a six-month win-dow for its own solution before any-ones status changes. The proximate cause of the Trump decision was a threat by the attor-ney general of Texas and other states to bring a suit challenging the legal-ity of DACA. Attention had to be paid, because Texas and other states success-fully got the other Obama unilateral amnesty, DAPA, enjoined by the courts. In a Facebook post, Obama waves off the legal challenge. He says DACA is based on the well-established legal principle of prosecutorial discretion.Ž He maintained the exact same thing about DAPA, and that didnt save it in the courts, including the Supreme Court. True prosecutorial discretion involves a case-by-case determina-tion by authorities. Obamas executive amnesties were sweeping new dispen-sations designed to apply to broad cate-gories of illegal immigrants. They didnt involve simply deciding not to priori-tize the deportation of the affected ille-gal immigrants, but the conferral of various positive benefits on them, most importantly work permits.This is clearly a new legal system for these immigrants, and in fact, President Obama once slipped and told an audience, I just took action to change the law.Ž Prior to DACA, Obama repeatedly said that he didnt have the authority to implement his own amnesty absent congressional action „ before doing just that.Now, Trump is giving Congress another chance. It isnt hard to see the parameters of a deal: a codification of DACA, putting it on firm legal footing, in exchange for enforcement measures. Whatever Congress arrives at, it will have more legitimacy than the jerry-rigged legislating of a president wield-ing a pen and a phone. President Trump has exercised his powers foolishly at times, but hes never exceeded them. What Obama calls, pejo-ratively, the White House shifting its responsibility for these young people to CongressŽ is really just basic civics. Congress writes the laws, even when its not to Barack Obamas liking. Q „ Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly roger BUCKWALTERSpecial to Florida Weekly


FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-20, 2017 A5Loggerhead Marinelife Center has received a grant of almost $6,300 from the Florida Sea Turtle Grants Program to purchase a new ATV. The Loggerhead Marinelife Center was chosen for the award through a competitive application process. The grant program is paid for through the sales of sea turtle specialty license plates, a program that launched in 1996 to raise money for the Florida Wild-life Conservation Commissions Marine Turtle Protection Program and the Sea Turtle Grants Program. The ATV will help the marinelife centers research department safely and more efficiently conduct morning and nighttime nesting surveys, which pro-vide data for LMC researchers to bet-ter understand and protect Florida sea turtles.

While most cats travel safely in carriers when they travel at all, the question typically draws an uneasy look and an uncomfortable response from even the most conscientious and well-meaning of dog lovers. The truth is that most dog lovers „ including those who wouldnt think of leaving home without first securing themselves and their children with a seat belt „ dont provide the same pro-tection for their dogs. The results can be tragic. Unrestrained pets cause more than 30,000 accidents annually, according to the American Automobile Association, inju-ries and even fatalities that could in many cases have been avoided with the use of a restraint or carrier. Its beneficial to both people and pets to have animals properly restrained in a car „ either with a commercial restraint device or in a carrier,Ž said Dr. Tony Johnson, emergency department director at VCA Indiana Veterinary Spe-cialists in Indianapolis. I have seen sev-eral dramatic and heartbreaking cases where dogs jumped out of a vehicle and suffered severe injuries.Ž Grant Biniaz of the pet health insurance provider VPI agrees. Injuries can be sustained during an accident, or even when slamming on the brakes,Ž he said. We also see many cases where unrestrained dogs have been injured jumping out of an open window if they see something interest-ing „ like another dog or a squirrel „ outside of the car.Ž But its not just about safety for pets. Restraining your dog while youre on the road protects people as well. Secured pets wont be the reason for a drivers distraction. In the case of an accident, a secured pet wont be fly-ing loose in the vehicle, increasing the likelihood and severity of injuries to all. In a 30 mph accident, a 60-pound dog can cause an impact of more than 2,700 pounds, slamming into a car seat, windshield or other passengers,Ž said Christina Selter, founder of Bark Buckle Up, an organization dedicated to teach-ing pet owners about the importance of securing their pets while traveling. And if the animal survives and gets loose, it can run into traffic or impede the progress of emergency crews arriv-ing on the scene.Ž There are many varieties of restraints, including harnesses that hook into the seatbelt systems, carriers and crates that keep pets protected and barriers to keep animals in the back, away from drivers. In fact, one auto manufacturer, Vo lvo, has made dog safety such a priority that the Swedish automaker has introduced its own line of pet barriers that fit into some of its more dog-friendly mod-els. And several other automakers are reportedly following suit. No matter what type of restraint you choose, the key is to introduce it to your pet as early as possible, said VPIs Biniaz. It is very difficult to train an older dog to wear a restraint in a car,Ž said Biniaz. Pet owners should acclimate their pets to restraints from a young age.Ž The importance of pet car safety is perhaps best summed up by Sgt.

Different scents can change your mood, transport you back to a distant memory and may even help you bond with loved ones. Your ability to smell also plays a key role in your health. If your ability to smell declines, it can affect your diet and nutrition, physical well-being and everyday safety. The things we smell are actually tiny molecules released by substances all around us. When we breathe in these molecules, they stimulate specialized sen-sory cells high inside the nose. Each of these sensory cells has only one type of odor receptor, a structure on the cell that selectively latches onto a specific type of smellyŽ molecule. There are more smells in the environment than there are odor receptors. But a given molecule can stimu-late a combination of these receptors, cre-ating a unique representation in the brain of a particular smell. Its estimated that the number of odors people can detect is somewhere between 10,000 and 100 billion, or even more,Ž says Dr. Gary Beauchamp, a taste and smell researcher at Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia. We all have different combinations of odor-detecting cells in our noses, he explains, so people vary greatly in their sensitivity to smells. For thousands of years, fragrant plants have been used in healing practices across many cultures. Aromatherapy, for example, aims to use essential oils from flowers, herbs or trees to improve physical and emotional well-being. To date, theres little scientific evidence supporting aromatherapys effectiveness for most health issues. Yet memories of smell can be vivid and long lasting, which might have a positive effect. Smell is also important for your perception of taste. Without smell, we can detect only five basic tastes: sweet, salty, bitter, sour and umami (savory). But our brains incorporate information from both taste and smell receptors to create the percep-tion of many different flavors. Some people may think theyve lost their sense of taste if food begins to taste bland or slightly off.Ž But in fact, they may have lost their ability to smell. Many things can cause smell loss. A stuffy nose, or a harmless polyp in the nose can block air and thus odors from reaching the sensory cells. Certain medications can temporarily alter smell. Some things can cause a long-lasting loss of smell. A head injury or virus, for example, can damage the nerves related to smell. And your ability to smell may natu-rally fade as you get older. A national health and nutrition survey recently revealed that 12 percent of adults have a smell dysfunction. The problem increases with age, with 39 percent of those ages 80 and older showing a deficit. Quality-of-life issues from smell loss affect people differently depending upon their situation, says Howard Hoffman of the National Institutes of Health. Food can become less enjoyable. You may lose interest in eating or change your eating habits, consuming a less-healthy diet.Smell loss can also put you in harms way if you dont notice a warningŽ smell. The recent national health and nutrition survey found that 1 in 10 people couldnt identify the smell of smoke, and about 15 percent couldnt identify the smell of natural gas. Among those ages 70 and older, 20 percent couldnt identify the smell of smoke, and 31 percent couldnt recognize gas odor. Problems with your ability to smell can sometimes be an early sign of serious health conditions. If your food doesnt smell or taste the way you think it should, talk to your doctor. Health-care providers can give you a scratch-and-sniffŽ smell identification test to help assess the kind of smell disorder you might have. Some studies suggest that smell training might help improve your ability to dis-criminate and identify odors. If you think youre experiencing a loss of taste or smell, see your health care provider. Q Summertime sniffles: Why do they happen? NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTHMost everyone looks forward to summer „ time to get away and have some fun. So what could be more unfair than catching a cold when its warm? How can cold symptoms arise when its not cold and flu season? Is there any way to dodge the summertime sniffles? Cold symptoms can be caused by more than 200 different viruses. Each can bring the sneezing, scratchy throat and runny nose that can be the first signs of a cold. The colds we catch in winter are usually triggered by the most common viral infections in humans, a group of germs called rhinoviruses. Rhinoviruses and a few other cold-causing viruses seem to survive best in cooler weather. Their numbers surge in September and begin to dwindle in May. During summer months, the viral landscape begins to shift. Generally speak-ing, summer and winter colds are caused by different viruses,Ž says Dr. Michael Pichichero, a pediatrician and infectious disease researcher at the Rochester Gen-eral Hospital Research Institute in New York. When you talk about summer colds, youre probably talking about a nonpolio enterovirus infection.Ž Enteroviruses can infect the tissues in your nose and throat, eyes, digestive system and elsewhere. A few enterovi-ruses can cause polio, but vaccines have mostly eliminated these viruses from Western countries. Far more widespread are more than 60 types of nonpolio enteroviruses. Theyre the second most common type of virus „ after rhinovirus „that infects humans. About half of people with enterovirus infections dont get sick at all. But nationwide, enteroviruses cause an estimated 10 million to 15 million illnesses each year, usually between June and October. Enteroviruses can cause a fever that comes on suddenly. Body temperatures may range from 101 to 104 degrees Faren-heit. Enteroviruses can also cause mild respiratory symptoms, sore throat, head-ache, muscle aches and gastrointestinal issues like nausea or vomiting. All age groups can be affected, but like most viral infections, enterovirus infections predominate in childhood,Ž Dr. Pichichero says. Adults can be protected from enterovirus infections if theyve developed antibodies from previous exposures, but they can still get sick if they encounter a new type of enterovirus. Less common enteroviruses can cause other symptoms. Some can lead to con-junctivitis, or pinkeye „ a swelling of the outer layer of the eye and eyelid. Others can cause an illness with rash. In rare cases, enteroviruses can affect the heart or brain. To prevent enterovirus infections, says Dr. Pichichero, its all about blocking viral transmission.Ž The viruses travel in respiratory secretions, like saliva or mucus, or in the stool of an infected person. You can become infected by direct contact, or you might pick up the virus by touching contami-nated surfaces or objects, such as a tele-phone, doorknob or babys diaper. Frequent hand washing and avoiding exposure to people who are sick with fever can help prevent the spread of infection,Ž Dr. Pichichero says. The summer colds caused by enteroviruses generally clear up without treat-ment within a few days or even a week. But see a health-care provider if you have concerning symptoms such as high fever or a rash. Q


A8 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-20, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY larry ON THE LINKSBoynton golfer edges Summer Mixed tourney Kevin Hammer of Boynton Beach changed partners but it didnt change the outc ome at the 16th annual Summer Mixed tournament, a joint production of the of the Florida State and Florida Womens State golf associations, which share offices in Tampa. Hammer and Meghan Stasi of Oakland Park edged the Tampa team of Jimmy Jones Sr. and Terese Romeo 136-137 at LPGA International in Daytona Beach. Hammer-Stasi shot 72-64, Jones-Romeo 71-68. Hammer and his daughter Alexa won in 2015 and 2016 but she is currently attending St. Andrews University in Scotland. In the forward division, Michael Sanger Juno Beach, and Tinker Sanger North Palm Beach, tied at 146 with Chris Berens Mount Dora, and Carol Kilian Daytona Beach. The Sangers had 72-74, Berens and Kilian 71-75. There was no playoff. Hammer won four Palm Beach County GA titles the last decade, but in recent years has concentrated on escorting Alexa to competitions around the country. He can trace his own successes back to the Junior Orange Bowl in 1988. His father, Laurie Hammer was the first, and recently retired, head profes-sional at Delray Dunes CC in Boynton Beach. The elder Hammer and Dave Stockton won the Haig Scotch Foursome Invitational at the end of the 1967 tour season, earning $11,000 apiece.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-20, 2017 NEWS A9 Visit us online at THERES A LOT TO LIKE There are probably far fewer people who start with the Volkswagen Golf on their shopping list than those who go home with one. This isnt a magical VW like Herbie from the movies, or the ultra-hot GTI sport model. So why is it compelling? Without the diesel motor in the lineup anymore, the Golf is adding focus to fill a niche better than most others out there. Its distinctive without being outlandish. Its not a sports car nor is it sluggish. Its affordable without being cheap. While it may appear like the description of a good middleman, theres more to this cars story. The Golfs styling is unique. The compact hatchback field has been heat-ing up in the U.S. recently with new additions like the Chevrolet Cruze, significantly redesigned cars like the Hyundai Elantra GT and returning old favorites like the Honda Civic. But these vehicles have a sloping rear end where the Golfs posterior is almost upright „ proudly declaring its a hatchback. Also, theres something really nifty about how the rear VW emblem automatically lifts up every time reverse is engaged to reveal the standard backup camera. That rear door is the key to its appeal. We traditionally like sedans in the U.S., and so owning a hatchback like the Golf an instant way to standout in the com-pact and midsize car crowds. Plus, any sedan owner who has ever tried to bring large items home „ anything from 200-count toilet paper to an electric genera-tor „ instantly wishes for the versatility of the wide rear cargo opening. But more than just carrying more stuff, the Golfs interior has appeal because Volkswagen seems to under-stand how to make it feel more upscale. Soft materials, good design and crisp dials make the sensation from the driv-ers seat a more premium experience than a Ford Focus or the Toyota iM. Also, the no-cost tan color option offers a far brighter atmosphere than some of the half-beige choices in cars like the Hyundai Elantra GT. While the Golf feels premium within its field, its also a premium price within its own family. The base model starts at $20,715, which is $2,000 more than the larger, but related, Jetta sedan. The rea-son VW is making customers pay more for less space is because of the longer list of features in the Golf. It comes standard with a 1.8-liter turbocharged engine producing 170 horse-power „ 22 percent more than the base Jetta. The option list for these two cars are similar enough that the hatch-back and the sedan become comparably equipped (engine, interior features, etc.) once about $23K is spent on either. Still, the Jetta cannot match the Golfs handling. The hatchbacks slightly shorter wheelbase and, more impor-tantly, a fully independent suspension, makes for a sharper feeling on the road. Volkswagen pays close attention to this area because the Golf is significantly more popular in Europe, where tighter handling is appreciated in a smaller package. In fact, not all of the Golfs direct competitors have an independent rear suspension as standard. This wont be a deal breaker for every hatchback fan, but some drivers will feel the difference. There is a limit to the Golfs appeal. VW is good at not making people pay extra for stylish interior and exteri-or color combinations, but there are other ways to rack up the price quickly. Options like the Fender stereo system and keyless ignition might seem like small add-ons, but they are often part of larger packages that could quickly boost the cost above $25K. At that price point, a bevy of other vehicles come into play „ everything from the sportier GTI hatchback to larger crossovers. The Golfs niche is not very broad. But this VW occupies a space at the crossroads of something distinctive, versatile, affordable and even a bit fun to drive. It creates an undeniable charm from owning a car thats different from everybody else in the neighborhood, and at the same time, more practical than those other sedans. So shop wisely, but dont be too surprised if you bring home a Golf.

gests Michael Reiter, who runs a security and investigative firm in Palm Beach, where he used to be chief of police. If they did, it would either make criminals paranoid or have a greater preventative factor, but it does not fully as yet since many crimes are captured on video every day,Ž he wrote in an email. Or maybe we just forget theyre there. Over the last decade increasingly sophis-ticated cameras have become so preva-lent „ in schools, businesses, homes, workplaces, pant pockets, looking out over roads and highways or down from a TV news drone „ that for many theyve become part of the background; they watch us but we dont watch them. At PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, guests and visitors have been seen in public areas by high-definition cameras doing things such as stealing, getting into fights, and groping other guests after apparently getting a little intoxicated,Ž recalls Trevor Sealy, assistant director of security. He laughs. Some of the things weve seen here „ I think a few folks need to go to church.Ž The resorts Hikvision cameras can be monitored live 24/7 from anywhere with an Internet connection, rotate 360 degrees, and zoom in I want to say on a dime,Ž Mr. Sealy said. But Ill go with a quarter for now.Ž As technology improves, cameras with such capabilities have become more and more common. I dont worry about it at all, personally,Ž said Charles Hardtke, 47, as he sat at The Indigo Room in downtown Fort Myers, the familiar, comforting lens of a security camera at its tireless post above the bar. I do some bad things some-times but Im not afraid of being caught „ not real bad, jaywalking and things.Ž It doesnt bother me,Ž said another bar patron Ayax Alvarez, 43, an electri-cian who lives in Lehigh Acres. It makes me happy. I prefer to have peace for my family and my kids. Do we need it? With everything thats going on with the world? F*** yeah, we do.Ž Doralea Asher, owner of All Good Things Antiques & Collectibles, just north of downtown Lake Worth, agrees. You might feel its intrusive but thats the tradeoff to protect society,Ž she said. The antiques mall is monitored by cameras that are mostly in plain view; a few are hidden. With a big, prominent Smile Youre on CameraŽ banner at the front of the store, Ms. Asher hopes the cameras are more a deterrent than a means of catching thieves. I really dont want to catch them,Ž said Ms. Asher, who is planning on upgrading her video camera system. I want them to think twice.Ž From elementary schools to universities, public schools have also beefed up video surveillance. As terrorist attacks and massacres such as the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting became more common, all Charlotte County Public Schools were equipped with cam-eras outside, in foyers, hallways, and other public areas. Weve done what we call hardening the schoolsŽ against potential attackers, which includes several security mea-sures, said Mike Riley, the districts com-munity liaison. At first the idea was to be able to spot a malicious intruder, but cameras have more often been used to keep an eye on students. The recorded and at times live-monitored footage helps settle disputes such as a claim of sexual harassment or to find out who wrote graffiti on the bathroom wall. We didnt realize it would evolve into helping the leadership of the school to solve problems, to find out what actu-ally happened versus what two or three students said happened,Ž Mr. Riley said. The numbers of security cameras in higher education is growing as well. At Florida Gulf Coast University, hundreds of security cameras already blan-ket the campus, and more are being added, said police chief Steven Moore. Whether its video of a fender bender, or a potential shooter or terrorist, Peo-ple expect there to be videos of every-thing these days,Ž he said. Thats what you see on the news.Ž Cameras helped solve several auto burglaries earlier this year in a parking garage on campus. Chief Moore emailed pictures of the suspects to the studentry. Within 10 minutes we had over a dozen replies by email and text messages telling us who the two people were,Ž he said. On our roads, many Florida cities such as Boynton Beach have installed red light cameras to snap photos of license plates as they pass through an intersection. American Traffic Solutions, which manufactures the cameras used in Boynton Beach, also has contracts with 36 other municipalities and counties throughout Florida including Tampa, Miami, Orlando and Orange County, Lakeland and Sarasota. Boynton is the only city in Palm Beach County with a contract „ other cities and towns discontinued use of the cam-eras after an appellate court ruled in 2014 that Hollywood, in southern Broward County, and therefore other cities, could not delegate ticket-writing to a third-par-ty vendor. Boynton always maintained its program is different, because an officer reviewed the potential violation or cita-tion before the notice was issued. Boynton has 16 red light cameras for which it pays a monthly fee to American Traffic of $4,250 per camera, or $68,000. The contract has a cost neutralityŽ clause, which means Boynton Beach never has to pay more each month than the cameras generate in fines and fees. The cameras are activated to snap still photos when someone runs a red light, but they are also recording 24/7 and used by law enforcement to investigate crimes such as hit-and-runs. Software can also analyze information gleaned from the cameras including traffic data such as the average speed of vehicles, and the ZIP codes where the vehicles are parked at night. In coming years, technology will allow red light camera data to be used in a wider variety of ways, suggests Charles Territo, a spokesman for American Traf-fic. I think the next generation of cameras will allow for more analytics of data to be performed at the roadside and pro-vide the ability to store that data in real time for law enforcement, emergency responders, transportation planners, and anyone else interested in what informa-tion the data provides.Ž The information is not used for marketing purposes, Mr. Territo said. Many roads and highways in Florida are also equipped with cameras that provide a live, 24/7 feed monitored by Department of Transportation officials remotely, including on I-95, I-75, and turnpikes. The cameras are part of what the state calls its Intelligent Transpor-tation System and are not recorded or used for any law enforcement purposes, a spokesperson stressed, although they could easily be outfitted with that capa-bility. The DOT uses the cameras to keep traffic moving efficiently by, for instance, adjusting light signal times, displaying messages on electronic boards to warn drivers to use a detour, or dispatching emergency vehicles. Palm Beach County has 152 Intelligent Transportation System cameras placed at major intersections and streets, and plans to add about 48 more. The cameras can zoom in and rotate 360 degrees. Video footage from the cameras may also be shared with news outlets, emer-gency operations centers, and police, said Giri Jeedigunta, the county traffic systems manager. If (Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office) want to record, its on them,Ž he said. Palm Beach also has an additional 200 fixed-view traffic cameras that are not able to zoom in or rotate, though they do record video. The cameras are paired with software that analyzes traffic vol-umes and other information, taking the place of old magnetic loops that used to be installed in the pavement. Those were the traditional way of installing detection sensors,Ž Mr. Jeedi-gunta said. So that job now is done by these cameras.Ž The sheer number of cameras and pictures that exists suggests how saturated society has become with their presence. Keypoint Intelligence, a research and advising firm for the digital imaging industry, estimates that people world-wide took 350 billion digital pictures in 2010. This year they are expected to take MOVEFrom page 1 “We have serious concerns and a lack of trust that government’s going to do what they say they’re going to do with the information they gather.”— Nancy Abudu, legal director for the ACLUCOURTESY PHOTOThe advancements of home security technology have made surveillance more simple than ever. A12 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-20, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY


1.5 trillion pictures, 290 billion of them in the United States. About eight out of every nine are taken with a phone versus a dedicated digital camera. The research firm IHS Markit estimates the number of surveillance cam-eras in North America grew from 33 million in 2012 to about 62 million by the end of last year. With so many cameras out there, its hard to know just how often were on camera over the course of any given day. That is a good question and not one that has been carefully studied,Ž Mr. Reiter emailed, but added that numerous surveillance cameras along with the almost innumerable number of cameras in mobile phones results in a large part of an average persons day outside of their home being captured on camera, particularly in urban and suburban envi-ronments.ŽLaw enforcement camerasAcross downtown Fort Myers, clusters of cameras peer out from light posts. A still unsolved shooting at the ZombiCon street festival two years ago led to $500,000 worth of cameras, 49 in all, news reports said at the time, being installed downtown. Since then, 10 more cameras have been added. To us, honestly, its an invaluable tool,Ž FMPD Capt. Jay Rodriguez said, helping solve crimes such as another downtown shooting in late August in which a man was shot in the leg in the early morning hours (he survived). Images also have helped the Crime Stoppers hotline identify numerous sus-pects, said coordinat or Trish Routte. Many cases still remain open such as the 2014 case of the legendary naked hamburglers,Ž three young men who stole beef in the buff in the middle of the night from Docs Beach House on Bonita Beach Road in the middle of the night. We think they were tourists who perhaps were under the influence of something at the time,Ž Ms. Routte wrote in an email.While there isnt a legal expectation of privacy in public places, complacency about cameras could lead to violations of personal liberties, suggests Nancy Abudu, legal director for the American Civil Liber-ties Union of Florida. With so many images being collected and watched by unknown people, its hard to guarantee theyre always used for their intended purpose.For instance, Florida law enforcement officers run more face recognition searches than nearly any other state, with very little oversight, a report last year by Georgetown Law Center on Pri-vacy & Technology found, raising con-cerns about police tracking political pro-testors and stifling free speech. (W)e have serious concerns and a lack of trust that governments going to do what they say theyre going to do with the information they gather,Ž Ms. Abudu says, and that society has normalized the relinquishment of privacy.Ž Mr. Reiter concludes that the threat of terrorism has low-ered the bar for what society is willing to accept as a threat to privacy in a public place.Ž But, he adds, The sheer volume of recordings dilutes the likelihood that any one persons image captured by a surveillance camera will be used against their best interest.Ž Many react to being watched and recorded by an increasing number of cameras with a shrug. And anyway if youre not doing anything wrong, whats the problem?Ž asks Lehigh resident Mr. Alvarez. For others, privacy in and of itself can be valuable to individuals. NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden suggests as much in one of his most well-known Snowdenisms: Arguing that you dont care about privacy because you have nothing to hide is like arguing that you dont care about free speech because you have nothing to say.ŽHigh-tech home and business camerasAnother catalyst for the rise of cameras has been the dropping cost and rising quality over the last decade. Cheap home surveillance systems start at less than $500. For a good quality hard-wired, interior/exterior home system, It used to be $4,000 or $5,000 for a four-camera setup,Ž said Brant-ley Oakey, owner of Vigilant Security in Naples. Now you could get a four-cam-era setup with a net-work video recorder, or NVR for short, for $1,000 or maybe just a little over that and youll have resolution thats similar to 1080 HD (and) access through your smart devices to look at those from anywhere you have Internet access.Ž Commercial security systems are also on the rise. One of our biggest vertical markets is the gated community/condos homeown-ers association-type businesses,Ž said Steve Paley, president of Rapid Security Solutions in Sarasota, which installs sys-tems for businesses throughout Florida. Were very large in the retail sector as well.Ž The latest capabilities of security systems include analytical software that can differentiate between people and other objects like birds, dogs, or a tree limb blowing in the wind. So you might be able to say in these parking lots between these hours I want you to send an alert if theres a human being,Ž he said. At Celtic Ray Irish Pub in Punta Gorda, owners Kevin and his son, Max Doyle, installed security cameras about five years ago. Ill be honest with you, I resisted them for many, many years,Ž Kevin Doyle said. I feel like its an invasion of pri-vacy, everybodys. But with some reluc-tance we finally had them installed, I think we had like 20 cameras installed.Ž Max Doyle is always surprised when someone tries to get away with a dine-and-dash these days, seemingly unaware that there are eyes watching. People should realize there are eyes everywhere especially in most business-es of every kind,Ž he said. Theres eyes everywhere and there will only be more in the future.Ž Q EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYABOVE: Doralea Asher near a sign that warns customers they are on camera at her All Good Things antiques mall in Lake Worth.

BUSINESS PALM BEACH FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPT. 14-20, 2017 A14 | WWW.FLORIDAWEEKLY.COM Real estate agents and o spring working together Its in the genes BY DAN MEARNS Florida Weekly Correspondent When it comes to real estate, the apple sometimes doesnt fall very far from the tree. Of course, the same could be said of any career path. Many children brought up in an environment where they can observe and absorb their parents skills may even-tually enter the same industry. Real estate is unique, however, in that each agent has to make his or her own way, accepting the challenges and hard work their parents face every day. The Telchins: From duo to trioSteve and Barbara Telchin of Niskayuna, N.Y., were enjoying successful careers as a dentist and teacher, respectively, in 1997, when they began looking for a second home in South Florida. They visited a highly regarded golf and country club community named Ibis in West Palm Beach and, within two months, retired from dentistry and teaching and became full-time residents. Eager to share the Ibis experience with others, Barbara Telchin got her real estate license in 2001. She started doing so well that she created a whole new career for herself,Ž said the Telchins son Eric. Seeing that, my Dad suddenly grew bored with playing golf every day, got his real estate license and joined her.Ž Living in Washington, D.C., Eric graduated from George Washington University in 2001 and joined The Washington Post as an online art director. He spent eight years in D.C. Every time I went to visit my parents, I saw their thriving practice,Ž Eric recalled, and every time I came to South Florida, I wondered why I wasnt living there.Ž He quit wondering in 2004, when he moved there, bought a home in the same Ibis community where his parents lived and went to work with them in real estate. Eric applied the business techniques he had learned in college with his marketing background to bring the Telchin trio up to speed on salesmanship and technology. He installed systems to streamline their busi-ness and improve customer service. Eric earned his brokers license in 2013 and formed the Telchin Group LLC. The trio had been working with another broker. So I was technically my parents boss,Ž Eric said with a chuckle, but we all have specific talents we bring to the table. Theres great synergy between us and we all have a lot of fun.Ž The Telchin Group is the No. 1 Realtor in Ibis listings and sales year after year. Eric estimated that they outsell their clos-est competitor by a 6-1 margin. We all live here and work here, and were fully engaged in the community,Ž Eric said. New people have automatic in with us in discovering and participating in the Ibis lifestyle.Ž The Club at Ibis, as it is known, covers 1,900 acres and includes more than 1,800 homes in 33 distinct communities. It boasts a 75,000-square-foot clubhouse, a new sports complex with four swimming pools and a two-story gym, four restau-rants and three golf courses designed by a firm founded by Jack Nicklaus. Its wonderful working in a place we love in a business we l ove,Ž Eric said, and I think our customers pick up on that. It allows us to be more direct with our cli-ents, which means that we move faster, more efficiently and with higher produc-tion than other firms.Ž The Telchins have only two other agents working with them „ Sue Chieco and Josie Newhouse „ who joined the group in 2007 and 2015, respectively. Theyre all great to work with,Ž Eric said of the whole group. We all work really hard, and we get results.Ž The Mirskys: Like mother, like daughterShe was a real firecracker,Ž Norma Mirsky said of her mother, Mimi, who died in June. Mimi was the first of the family to get her real estate license and was making a name for herself in Palm Beach County while daugh-ter Norma established a condo association management concern. Norma subsequently sold her firm, and her mothers real estate company folded at the same time, so they got together as business partners Norma described the current market as GAIL V.

steady,Ž not as fast-paced as it was two or three years ago. I believe in slow and steady,Ž she said. I learned that from my mom. She was very wise.Ž Mimi majored in psychology and applied that sciences concepts to her work as a Realtor. She treated her clients with patience and respect, keeping lines of com-munication open at all times. When Norma entered real estate full time with her mom alongside her, near the end of 1990, it was indeed a stressful time. The country was in the midst of a recession that lasted through March 1991. Real estate values, however, remained depressed for four more years. It was a rough time,Ž Norma said, but we didnt know any better. A lot of people who were making big bucks before lost a lot of money. We were very mindful that there are always going to temporary highs and tem-porary lows. Its a cyclical market. A lot of people dont realize that and get discour-aged.Ž The mother-daughter team held fast, applying Mimis philosophy, and emerged on the road to success. The firm now employs 58 Realtors and about 60 referral agents. Mimis family, friends and associations gathered for a celebration of her life at her West Palm Beach home over the weekend of Aug. 12-13. Q GENESFrom page 14 FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-20, 2017 BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE A15 MONEY & INVESTINGJust how high might the government push the debt ceiling? In the last few weeks, there has been a lot of focus on the federal government debt ceiling.Ž Headlines have proph-esized everything from a total govern-ment shutdown to a market crash to an economic depression if the debt ceiling is not raised by the end of September. What is the debt ceiling and why is it so important today? The federal debt ceiling was created by Congress in 1917 when it passed the Second Liberty Bond Act. Before that date, lawmakers simply authorized the treasury to take on debt to fund a par-ticular expenditure. However, with the start of World War I, it became too com-plicated to fund each war expenditure by itself, so Congress authorized the treasury to issue bonds or other debt instruments to fund the governments expenses as long as the total debt was under a certain number. This number was the first debt ceiling. Note that the debt ceiling has nothing to do with spending tax dollars or allocating funds to particular projects. Instead, the debt ceiling is analogous to the spending limit on your credit card. MasterCard doesnt care what you use the card for, as long as you stay under your pre-approved line of credit. So what is the governments debt ceiling? In 1940, at the onset of World War II, the debt ceiling stood at about $49 billion. It took about 40 years for that amount to surpass the $1 trillion mark. Only five years later, in 1985, that num-ber doubled to $2 trillion. Today, the debt ceiling stands at about $20 trillion. If Congress did not authorize an increase to the debt ceiling it would be analogous to you being at your credit limit on your Visa Card and having scheduled payment on your cable bill, Netflix subscription, and insurance pre-mium for the following day. Something will not get paid. Who determines what gets paid and what doesnt once the government limit is reached? Some argue that the Executive Branch can pick and choose which programs get funded and which do not. Others argue that no one can receive govern-ment money at that point, including U.S. government bondholders who are owed interest. It is this last point that has convinced many analysts that the debt ceiling has outlived its usefulness and now causes more problems than it solves. They worry that for political reasons Con-gress may fail to increase the limit, lead-ing to a loss of confidence in the bond markets. Interest rates would spike, as investors demanded a higher rate of return to hold U.S. bonds, which could lead to a depression. Will Congress phase out the debt ceiling? After all, if it wanted to control debt, it could simply pass a budget with less spending. But politically, conservatives would be hard pressed to abolish it for fear of being seen as not fiscally conservative. And liberals like it, as they are often able to tradeŽ a higher debt ceiling for some spending package that favors their constituents. So for now, as long as Congress continues to fuel ever expanding budget deficits, we will constantly be pressed against rising debt ceilings as well. Q eric The headstrong supply and demand imbalances in much of the country slightly tempered the pace of sales and caused home prices to maintain their robust growth in the second quarter, according to the latest quar-terly reportby the National Associa-tion of Realtors. The national median existing single-family home price in the second quarter was $255,600, w hich is up 6.2 percent from the second quarter of 2016 ($240,700) and surpasses the third quarter of last year ($241,300) as the new peak quarterly median sales price. The median price during the first quar-ter increased 6.9 percent from the first quarter of 2016. Single-family home prices last quarter increased in 87 percent of mea-sured markets, with 154 out of 178 metropolitan statistical areas showing sales price gains in the second quarter compared with the second quarter of 2016. Twenty-three areas (13 percent) recorded lower median prices from a year earlier. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says home prices in most metro areas continued their fast ascent in the sec-ond quarter because supply remained at pitiful levels. The 2.2 million net new jobs created over the past year generated sig-nificant interest in purchasing a home in what was an extremely competitive spring buying season,Ž he said. List-ings typically flew off the market in under a month „ and even quicker in the affordable price range „ in several parts of the country. With new supply not even coming close to keeping pace, price appreciation remained swift in most markets. The glaring need for more new home construction is creating an affordability crisis that needs to be addressed by policy officials and local governments.Ž At the end of the second quarter, there were 1.96 million existing homes available for sale, which was 7.1 percent below the 2.11 million homes for sale at the end of the second quarter in 2016. The average supply during the second quarter was 4.2 months „ down from 4.6 months in the second quarter of last year. Last quarter, a rise in the national family median income ($71,529) was not enough to offset weaker afford-ability from the combination of higher mortgage rates compared to a year ago and rising home prices. To purchase a single-family home at the national median price, a buyer making a 5 per-cent down payment would need an income of $56,169, a 10 percent down payment would require an income of $53,213, and $47,300 would be needed for a 20 percent down payment. Existing-home sales in the South dipped 3.0 percent in the second quar-ter but are 2.5 percent higher than the second quarter of 2016. The median existing single-family home price in the South was $229,400 in the second quarter, 6.7 percent above a year earlier.

History museum finds treasure from along shores BY JANIS FONTAINEpbnews@oridaweekly.comTo our readers: At press time, many events were being canceled and resched uled because of Hurricane Irma. Please check with the venue before planning to attend events listed here.At the Richard and Pat Johnson Palm Beach County History Museum, on the second floor of the old courthouse, at 300 N. Dixie Highway, the new exhibi tion “Shipwreck: Discovering Lost Trea sures,” will fascinate fans of ships lost at sea. The Gulf Stream drew ships like I-95 draws truckers, and the beautiful but treacherous Atlantic Ocean became the final resting place for the Lofthus (1898), near Boynton Beach, the Urca De Lima (1715), near Fort Pierce, and the SS Copenhagen (1900) to the south, near Pompano Beach. The exhibition takes a closer look at the seafaring history of our county using information gleaned from those wrecks and others that took place between 1660 and 1984. The exhibition is on display until June 30 and admission to the museum is free. Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Mon day through Friday and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday. For more information, visit or call 561-832-4164.Love history?

But having sampled widely and with great dedication, Ive arrived at a conclu-sion about ros: These wines are excellent choices pretty much whenever. You can make ros wines in two ways. Its perfectly legitimate to simply mix some red and white together, which is how many of them are created. Or if you do it the classier and more expensive way, you crush red grapes, leave the juice on the skins until the liquid achieves the color you want, then drain it off. Plus, ross can be made from just about any red varietal. In Tavel, in southern France, many are made from Grenache and Syrah, which are the major grapes in the region. One of the samples in the list below is made primarily from Cabernet. But weve sampled others made from Zinfandel and even Pinot Noir. Since these wines come in such a wide variety of styles, youre sure to find one thats light enough or full-bodied enough, or dry or sweet enough to accompany almost any kind of food and any type of occasion. And since excellent ross are made all over the world, you can choose the traditional styles from the south of France (especially Tavel and Lirac) or other types from California, Washington State, or even South America. These offer a very satisfying range of styles.Q Villa Gemma Cerasuolo dAbruzzo Ros ($15) „ The darkest color of all the ross we sampled ƒ deep cranberry with a nose that fulfills the promise of the color. Profound cherry notes and an explosion of fruit on the palate. The grape is Negroa-maro, and its extremely full-bodied for a ros. Serve well-chilled and enjoy. WW 89-90.QFrescobaldi Alie Ros Ammiraglia 2016 ($22) „ Lovely light pink color with flower peach aromas. Plenty of refreshing strawberry and raspberry flavors. Refresh-ing any time. WW 86.QRaimat Castell de Raimat Ros 2015 ($12) „ This blend of 75 percent Cabernet and 30 percent Tempranillo delivers spicy cherry aromas with over-tones of smoke. The palate is a pleasing mix of strawberry and blueberry notes, a little bit of spice, and a sweetish finish. Serve well-chilled. We liked it. WW 88-89.QFel Pinot Noir Anderson Valley 2015 ($38) „ A lighter-than-usual garnet color with aromas of blackberry and pro-nounced raspberry. Soft and light-bodied on the palate: spice, cedar and strawberry. WW 89.Ask the Wine Whisperer Q. Recently, my husband and I attended a wine tasting at a Renaissance festival. I fell in love with a dessert wine called Simply PsychodelicŽ and purchased a couple of bottles from a local winery. When we opened it at home and poured it into our glasses, we noticed right away a grainy sugaryŽ ring left by the wine. I have never seen this before and it made me raise my eyebrows. When we tasted it, it was much sweeter than we remem-bered. Is it common practice to add sugar to wine? A. The sugary particles you saw were most likely crystals of tartaric acid „ cream of tartar. This sometimes crystal-lizes in wine, especially whites, and usu-ally settles to the bottom of the bottle or sticks to the inside surface of the cork. It is harmless and no cause for concern. In the U.S., it is not legal to add sugar to wine, though some countries (like Germany) permit the practice. Its done during fer-mentation to increase alcohol content.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-20, 2017 B3 rr rn r   rn rnr rnrrnnn rrnnrr r €‚ƒ„nr…†r €‚ƒ‚„…‡ˆ‡†‰Šr‹ ŒŽ‚r„†‘nrrnrr’rr‘‹“”rnn•ˆrŠ‹ Œr†••n‘… r•–r’rr—• Johnny” from “Happy End” to Stephen Sondheim’s “With So Little To Be Sure Of” from “Anyone Can Whistle.” But there will likely be numbers from the collected works of Burt Bacharach and The Beatles. “I tend to sing a lot of songs from the ’60s because that’s the decade I grew up in.” Indeed, in appearances over the past five years, the renowned playwright, screenwriter and actor has been evolving this piece that owes much to his days as a drag cabaret performer but is meant more as a theatrical event. “I love playing in theaters; I’m really a theater person,” he said. “I’m not the world’s greatest singer. If you want Adele, get Adele. But I’ve always been a story teller; I can tell a good story. And as an actor you can take a song and turn it into a dramatic monologue.” He laughed and added, “And I took the radical move last year of, dare I say it, taking a few singing lessons.” It helps that Mr. Judson has been an acquaintance for 35 years. “He’s very tough on me, those pesky little details like tempo and pitch. Whatever happened to the concept of a ‘yes’ man?” Now a youthful-looking 63 years old, he has been performing in solo drag shows since the 1970s. But when audience inter est temporarily flagged, he began writing plays and skits with himself often appear ing as the leading lady. His first big “hit” was the lampoon “Vampire Lesbians of Sodom” in 1984, the first of several broad satirical pieces such as “The Lady In Question.” One description of “Sodom” suggests, “series of vignettes that deals with the lives of two eponymous immor tal vampire lesbians, a creature known as The Succubus, who is also known as La Condessa or Magda Legerdemaine, and the virgin-turned-vampire who becomes known as Madelaine Astarte and Mad elaine Andrews.” Much of his work played off-Broad way, but mainstream audiences finally embraced his work in 2000 in “The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife,” which was Tony-nominated and ran 777 performances when it moved from the Manhattan The atre Club to Broadway with Linda Lavin. Since then he has been perpetually busy with multiple projects, from writing the book for the musical “Taboo,” about Boy George, to his second and third run at playing the titular “Auntie Mame.” Often these new performance dates are slated nine months in advance. But this one popped up about six weeks ago when Mr. Busch’s friend, David Cohen, a Dramaworks and OutStage supporter, suggested the visit. “He’s just determined for me to get down there. I think he just wants me to see his house.” He’s never been to Palm Beach County, but he has played across the region from Coral Springs to South Beach. He keeps looking forward to a full slate of projects, but he acknowledges a touch of anxiety as he gets older. Asked whether drag queens have a tougher time getting hired as they age, as any diva does, he said he has seen that in drag opera companies and drag ballet companies. “It is interest ing that that as a female impersonator ages, he has the same issues as the women he impersonates.” There are similar issues akin to having the “fear of hitting those high notes, the fear of the grand jet. But I written my own plays myself over the years and you know sometimes (the roles he has written for himself) are women who have grown children.” He cites Sarah Bernhardt who toured late into old age. Once when she was playing Joan of Arc, the inquisitor asked how old she was. She turned to the audi ence and stated fearlessly, “‘Nineteen.’ The audience applauded her audacity.” He teaches occasionally, trying to instill his love of classic Hollywood films in a new generation that seems to have dis missed them. But in coaching students in the acting style he mastered decades ago, he warns, “It’s the kind of comedy that has to have a backbone to it, an emotional truth. Otherwise it’s just a lot of scream ing and silliness.” Indeed, his years on stage have given him a technician’s facility at manipulating the audience with different line readings. He is quietly confident of his hard-won skill set. And if the audience doesn’t react as he hopes? He answers with an audible twinkle in his voice, “There’s no intermis sion, so they can’t walk out.” OutStage is a new initiative designed by Dramaworks to continue expanding its reach into the entire community, in this case hosting events designed to attract LGBTQ patrons. “There is a dynamic LGBTQ commu nity in Palm Beach County, and we’d like to see those who love theatre become part of the PBD family,” said Gary Cad wallader, director of education and com munity engagement. “OutStage@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. And what better way to launch this series than with Charles Busch, who is not only a brilliant artist but a gay icon.” But Mr. Busch jocularly notes that he erroneously keeps expecting these shows to bring in “his audience,” meaning gay men over 50 years old. “And then I look out into the audience and wonder where they are. It’s often a lot of women.” The second OutStage@PBD event will be the December 15 performance of Terry Teachout’s world premiere play, “Billy and Me,” about the fraught relationship between gay playwrights William Inge and Tennessee Williams. The evening will begin with a pre-show dinner, con tinue with a post-performance talkback with Mr. Teachout and director William Hayes, and conclude with a post-show reception.

B10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-20, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLYing to Florida for fall festivals can be a good deal for visitors, because accom modations often are cheaper and package deals are available. The following is a sample of the variety of events. Use them for inspiration. But if you have a particular interest — whether it’s a genre of music or a type of food or a fondness for a particular hobby — or if you will already be traveling to another section of the state for some reason, look around. Something will be going on.MUSIC FESTIVALSIsland Hopper Songwriter Fest Featuring: Acoustic, singer-songwrit er, country When: Sept. 22-Oct. 1 Where: Multiple venues at Captiva Island, downtown Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach Cost: Majority of performances are free; ticketed performances $5-$20 Info: With 85 songwriting acts performing 155 shows at 24 venues in three Lee County communities over 10 days, the fourth annual Island Hopper Songwriter Fest is the best music festival your money can’t buy. Crazy as it sounds for a music festival that brings in the songwriting tal ent behind the hits of nationally known artists such as the Dixie Chicks, Celine Dion, George Strait, Brad Paisley, Eddie Rabbitt, Rascal Flatts and Ariana Grande, nearly the entire festival is free. Even the handful of events that do require tickets, such as concerts by headline performers Lindsay Ell, Brooke Eden and RaeLynn, are modestly priced. How can this be? “It’s a tremendous collaboration that keeps the Island Hopper bursting with song and growing,” said Francesca Don lan, director of communications for The Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau. “I don’t think there are many festivals out there where you can see this many perfor mances for free.” Because the free performances take place at venues that typically feature happy hour musicians, the atmosphere of the event is quite intimate. It also means you should scope out the schedule online to plot your strategy for finding a chair if there is a popular performer you’d like to see. Or, you can take a Zen approach and walk among the venues listening for something from the musical smorgasbord to catch your ear and then see if you can find a seat. Sometimes you can make new friends this way. At the first Island Hop per, a visitor on holiday from Germany had booked a stay at Fort Myers Beach because hotel prices were low in Sep tember. She had no idea a big event was scheduled. When she went out to find a place for dinner, she was stunned to see so many people but found a seat by asking if she could sit in an empty chair at the table of a local person who happened to be this reporter. “My point of view regarding our great trip to Florida / Fort Myers was very amazing, especially the American peo ple, their warm and honest welcome, the enjoyable atmosphere,” Marija Gadza wrote by email about her memories of stumbling upon the Island Hopper. “I was quite impressed about the good country-style music. You Americans really know how to make quality entertainment.”Suwannee Hulaween Featuring: Nationally known contem porary, indie rock, bluegrass and jam bands When: Oct. 27-29 Where: Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, 3076 95th Drive, Live Oak Cost: $259-$295 Info: Part jam-band rock festival, part otherworldly performance art, part campout at one of the most renowned music ven ues in the state, Suwannee Hulaween will definitely be a happening. Headlin ers include The String Cheese Incident, Ween, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, The Disco Biscuits, Here Come the Mummies, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Magic City Hippies, Space Jesus and about 50 other bands. Although this is a big event, Spirit of the Suwannee is an 800-acre forested park, so you’ll be able to spread out to camp.Frank Brown International Songwriters’ Festival Featuring: Acoustic, singer-songwrit er, country When: Nov. 9-19 Where: Pensacola-area venues in both Florida and Alabama Cost: Majority of performances are free Info: www.frankbrownsongwriters. com This music festival brings in more than 200 Grammy-winning and up-and-com ing songwriters to put on several hundred performances over the course of 11 days. OFF Weekend Music & Arts Festival Featuring: Nationally known contem porary, indie rock and rap music acts When: Dec. 9-10 Where: Historic Virginia Key Beach Park, 4020 Virginia Beach Drive, Miami Cost: $75-$235 Info: If there wasn’t already enough culture in the air in Miami the second weekend of December with the Art Basel exhibition (you’ll read more about that festival later), a new festival showcasing contemporary, indie rock and rap music will add to the vibe. OFF Weekend & Arts Festival adver tises itself as a multi-genre music festival taking place during “Basel week,” and its inaugural outing will feature as headliners the Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, legend ary rappers the Wu-Tang Clan and indie rockers TV on the Radio, among others. More acts and details will be announced in the coming months, but early bird tickets are already on sale. The festival takes place at Historic Virginia Key Beach Park, which takes up much of the 863-acre island in Biscayne Bay and historically was the site of Miami’s segregated beach for black residents. Other music festivals at this park have offered camping, so watch the festival’s website to see if this amenity will be offered. QQQ ART FESTIVALSArt Basel Miami Beach Featuring: Museum-quality interna tional modern and contemporary art When: Dec. 7-10 Where: Miami Beach Convention Center, 1901 Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach Cost: $60 per day or $130 for four days Info: Miami hosts the only Western Hemi sphere edition of Art Basel, an interna tional exhibition that started in Basel, Switzerland, to showcase modern and contemporary works of art. Now in its 16th year, the Miami exhibition dwarfs the original, with over 200 galleries exhibiting artworks by 4,000 established and emerg ing artists, including paintings, sculptures, installations, photography, film, video and digital art. Centered at the Miami Beach Convention Center, the festival extends out to a network of events at venues including Miami’s Art Deco hotels. The public purchase general admission, but this is one event where a VIP ticket has real meaning. VIP tickets and events are offered by invitation only to known art patrons. 31st annual American Sand Sculpting Championship Featuring: Live art demonstrations, beach festival, vendors, live music When: Nov. 17-26 Where: Wyndham Garden Hotel, 6890 Estero Blvd., Fort Myers Beach Cost: $7 ages 5 and up Info: If you ever built castles on the beach as a kid, you know how tough it can be for sculptures made of sand to hang together. Just imagine what it would have been like trying to build a sand castle that was taller than you. Actually, you don’t have to imag ine. You can see it for yourself as master sand sculptors from around the world create wondrous but temporary artworks from mere sand at the 31st annual Ameri can Sand Sculpting Championship. The event is the largest sand sculpting compe tition in the country. Beyond watching the artists at work, the festival features plenty of other things to do, including live music, the “Quick Sand” speed sculpting shows, hands-on lessons, amateur competitions, children’s activity area and food. This year, the vendor village will be larger, said Jacki Liszak, president of the Fort Myers Beach Chamber of Commerce. “We’ll be having some of the favorite sculptors back and some new ones,” Ms. Liszak said. “We do a Christmas card photo station that’s pretty cute, where they put your name into the sand and take your photo so you can use those as Christmas cards. The amateurs competi tions are fun because sometimes the kids get in there and do stuff.” If you attend the event, a helpful tip is to arrive from the south and park for free at the event field by the boat launch ramp at Lovers Key State Park (8700 Estero Blvd.) and hop the free shuttle buses to the event.The Siesta Key Crystal Classic International Sand Sculpting Festival Featuring: Live art demonstrations, beach festival, vendors, live music When: Nov. 10-13 Where: Siesta Beach, 948 Beach Road, Siesta Key Cost: $10 Info: www.siestakeycrystalclassic. com Started in 2010, sand sculptors create masterpieces in a maximum of only 24 hours spread out over the four days of the event. Since parking is quite limited on Siesta Key, see the website for instruc tions about parking on the mainland and taking public transit out to the island. QQQ FOOD FESTIVALS22nd annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Featuring: A record 35 marketplace booths with food and wines from across the globe When: Through Nov. 13 Where: Epcot, Disney World, Orlando Cost: Starts at $99 for basic park ticket Info: There are marketplaces featuring food, wine and beer. The appetizer-sized por tions usually range in price from $4-$8 and provide the perfect opportunity to try the traditional cuisine from around the world. The International Food & Wine Festival hosts seminars, tasting events and sump tuous meals overseen by top Disney chefs as well as renowned guest chefs. See the website for details.8th annual Stone Crab Festival Featuring: Seafood, live music, craft vendors When: Oct. 27-29 Where: Tin City and Bayfront Naples, corner of Goodlette-Frank Road and Tamiami Trail East, Naples Cost: Free admission Info: Fall festivals focusing upon foods are fairly common up North, but those fes tivals celebrate the end of the harvest season. In Naples, the festival celebrates the beginning of the season for one of our uniquely Floridian foods: the stone crab. The six-month season opens mid-October. Given it takes a few days to set traps and harvest the delectable fresh crab claws, it makes sense that the Old Naples Waterfront Association throws the festival on the last weekend of October. After the ceremonial cracking of the first stone crab claws by local leaders, the fes tivities at the waterfront run all weekend with live music, craft vendors, “charity AUTUMNFrom page 1 THE BEACHES OF FORT MYERS & SANIBEL Aaron Barker, who wrote No. 1 songs “Love Without End, Amen” and “Easy Come, Easy Go” for George Strait, returns to the Island Hopper Songwriter Fest taking place in Lee County Sept. 22-Oct. 1.

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-20, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B11 row” booths, drink specials and, of course, lots of stone crab and other local seafood. 54th Annual Florida Seafood Festival Featuring: Oyster shucking and eating contests, country music, Christian music When: Nov. 3-6 Where: Battery Park, 1 Bay Ave., Apalachicola Cost: $5 ages 12 and up Info: Given it is the oldest such festival in the state, it seems understandable that Apalachicola calls its event the Florida Seafood Festival. But given that when the word “oysters” appear on a restau rant menu in many parts of this country, the requisite question to the server isn’t, “Are they fresh?” but is, “Are they Apala chicolas?” the event arguably could be called “Florida’s Seafood Festival” given how synonymous the Panhandle town’s name has become with the tasty mollusks. Incorporated in 1827, the historic town of just over 2,000 people is worth the drive to visit even on an ordinary day. One resi dent, who migrated up from the Keys to open a business, described Apalachicola as having the vibe Key West used to have before it became inundated with tourists. Highlights of the festival include oys ter-shucking and oyster-eating contests (although speed eating your way through a plate of raw Apalachicolas seems such a waste), blessing of the fleet, blue crab races, carnival midway and live music as well as interactive educational displays about Apalachicola Bay’s unique ecosys tem that makes for such tasty wild oysters and the work it takes for oystermen to harvest them by hand with long-handled tongs.11th annual Palm Beach Food and Wine Festival Featuring: Gourmet food, fine dining, wine, celebrity chefs When: Dec. 14-17 Where: Multiple venues around Palm Beach Cost: $85-$185 per meal Info: If you’re looking for a sophisticated food festival for a grown-up audience, this is your event. With the exception of one hands-on cooking class for kids, no one under the age of 21 is admitted into festi val events. Held at some of Palm Beach’s swankest restaurants and resorts, the fes tival’s 14 events are ticketed al la carte or you can purchase tickets to several events at a small discount. QQQ HALLOWEEN EVENTSHowl-O-Scream Featuring: Haunted houses, thrill rides, entertainment, full bars When: Select dates between Sept. 22-Oct. 29 Where: Busch Gardens, 10165 N. McKinley Drive, Tampa Cost: $40-$45 for basic ticket Info: tampa/events/howl-o-scream During the Halloween season, Busch Gardens revamps itself at night into a cross between a haunted house and a night club. Nearly a dozen themed sce narios await you in the different haunted houses. Plus, if you thought Busch Gar dens’ rides weren’t scary enough by day, they’ll be open for you to try riding on Howl-O-Scream nights.Halloween Horror Nights Featuring: Horror movie haunted houses, stage shows, movie-themed rides When: Select dates between Sept. 15-Nov. 4 Where: Universal Orlando, 6000 Uni versal Blvd., Orlando Cost: $110 (significant discounts avail able via advanced online purchase with UPC code from Coke products) Info: www.halloweenhorrornights. com/orlando Think watching a horror movie is scary? Try walking through a haunted house that is themed upon the most infamously frightening horror movies ever. This will be your experience if you visit Univer sal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights. Experience living through “The Shining,” “Saw,” “American Horror Story,” “The Purge” and more popular movies. Univer sal Orlando cautions that this event is not for anyone under the age of 13. QQQ CULTURAL FESTIVALSEl Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Featuring: Live music, traditional foods, traditional cultural celebration When: Nov. 2 Where: Espanola Way pedestrian street, Miami Beach Cost: Free Info : laWay Every group who comes to the cul tural melting pot that is the United States brings traditions that interest neighbors. Given that the Day of the Dead falls close to Halloween and bears some similar ity in that the holiday is concerned with those who have passed the veil to the great beyond, traditions from the Mexi can holiday have begun to influence cus toms north of the border, with stylized black-on-white painted skull faces called Catrinas showing up alongside witches and black cats in Halloween decoration stores. But there is more to Day of the Dead traditions than Catrinas, and the holiday is intended more as a celebra tion of departed loved ones than a night of fright. The Oh! Mexico restaurant and the new Espanola Way Association are bringing El Dia de los Muertos to the pedestrian-only street that was an artist quarter dating back to the 1920s. “Because there are way too many Hal loween parties in Miami, we wanted a way to differentiate ours,” said Scott Rob ins, president of the Espanola Way Asso ciation. “Miami embraces unique events, so we will be the maker of Day of the Dead in Miami.” The event will feature live bands, a sta tion for visitors to have their faces painted in the Catrina style, foods traditional to the holiday and traditional marigold-cov ered altars. The cultural holiday exchange goes both ways. The street will offer trick-or-treating as part of the celebration.44th Lantana Oktoberfest Featuring: Authentic food and beer, music, dance, crafts and carnival midway When: Oct. 13-15 and Oct. 20-22 Where: American German Club of the Palm Beaches, 5111 Lantana Road, Lake Worth Cost: $10 ages 12 and up Info: oktoberfest At 44 years, Lantana is one of the oldest Oktoberfests in Florida and has reputa tion of being one of the largest Oktober fests in the country. The club brings over bands from Germany, and they serve the authentic Hofbrau biers as well.Oktoberfest Tampa Featuring: Authentic food and beer, music, dance, game competitions, dog friendly When: Oct. 13-15 Where: Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, 600 N. Ashley Drive, Tampa Cost: $10 daily; $25 weekend pass; VIP $95-$135 daily Info: Oktoberfest Tampa aims to get you up out of your seat, either to dance or to participate in its outrageous Bavarian game competitions at the only dog friend ly Oktoberfest on the list. Competitions include stein hoisting, stein racing, beer barrel rolling and carrying the wench as well as a contest for best moustache. This should all keep those dogs barking as the beer is flowing.Miami Broward One Carnival Featuring: Caribbean culture, steel drum bands, costumed street parade, live entertainment When: Oct. 6-8 Where: Multiple locations in MiamiDade and Broward counties Cost: $30-$225 Info: www.miamibrowardcarnival. com Never made it to Trinidad for Carnival? Here’s your chance without having to buy a sailboat or pop for airfare. Miami Broward One Carnival features a con cert showcasing 20 bands representing a number of Caribbean musical genres, a traditional J’ouvert street parade with elaborate costumes and bands, a steel drum band competition to be named the top band of the Carnival, and traditional Caribbean crafts village.Fantasy Fest Featuring: Parade, parties, street fes tival, skimpy costumes, body paint, skin When: Oct. 20-29 Where: Duval Street and other venues in Key West Cost: Purchase tickets by the indi vidual event Info: What started as a parade in 1979 has turned into an outrageous event to give Mardi Gras a run for its money. There’s plenty of bawdy shows at Fantasy Fest, but there’s also plenty of opportunity to show off and be the show as well since creative, skimpy costumes not only are tolerated but encouraged. The homemade bikini contest probably explains it all if you had any doubts left in your mind. Much of Fantasy Fest should be consid ered rated NC-17. QQQ HISTORICAL FESTIVALSBoynton Beach Haunted Pirate Fest and Mermaid Splash Featuring: Parade, costume contest, historical reenactors, musical perfor mances When: Oct. 21-22 Where: Schoolhouse Children’s Museum and Learning Center, 129 E Ocean Ave., Boynton Beach Cost: Free Info: Come see the pirates parade and mer maids swim at this kid-friendly event with 12 stages of entertainment.

B12 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-20, 2017 FLORIDA WEEKLY LATEST FILMS‘Patti Cake$’ ++ Is it worth $10? Yes Theres no room for Patricia Dombrowski in the rap world. Shes an overweight white girl from New Jersey whos laughed at and rejected when-ever she dares to ask for a chance. But she wouldnt be an inspiring dreamer, and we wouldnt have Patti Cake$,Ž if she didnt try. Shes earnest and likeable and we want her to succeed, which is why its a shame writer/director Geremy Jaspers movie isnt more of a success. Contriv-ances, melodrama and predictability hinder an otherwise engaging narrative that at times has us dancin in our seats. Patti (Danielle Macdonald) can see the bright lights of Manhattan across the Hudson River, but shes far from having her dreams come true. Shes a lowly bart ender whose alcoholic mother (Bridgett Everett) had a promising singing career that was dashed when she became pregnant with Patti. Money was then and continues to be an issue, so much so that they cant even pay Pattis grandmothers (Cathy Moriarty) medical bills. But Patti dreams. With the rap name Patti Cake$,Ž she and best friend Jheri (Siddharth Dhanan-jay), whos Indian and works as a phar-macist, create music in their spare time. Opportunities knock, doors open and close. When they meet a sound mixer whos a self-described anar-chist (Mamoudou Athie), they get even closer to making their dreams a reality. Mr. Jaspers film hits typical hangout spots such as bowl-ing alleys and din-ers, and if youve ever been to Jersey the divided high-way will look nota-bly familiar. Keeping the film grounded in the small-town nature of Pattis life means were con-stantly reminded of how much she yearns to escape it, which in turn makes each blow to the contrary sting that much more. Try all she wants, she could still end up stuck there; its not the worst thing in the world, except when you consider its the last thing she wants. The music is catchy enough to stick in your ear „ especially the songs Tough LoveŽ and P, B & JŽ „ but its not necessarily good enough to make you want to buy the soundtrack. In a way this makes sense „ these are unproven amateurs creating the music, after all. At the same time, this is a professionally made feature film that weve paid money to see. Cant help but wish the music were a little better. Regardless, the real revelation and appeal of Patti Cake$Ž lies in Ms. Mac-donald, the heretofore unknown actress who plays Patti. She will remind some, both physically and in terms of sing-ing prowess, of Rebel Wilson (Pitch PerfectŽ), which is oddly apropos given that both Ms. Macdonald and Ms. Wil-son are Australian. But consider that for moment: An Australian actress learned how to rap and mastered a New Jersey accent, and it all feels lived-in and natural. Depending on the popularity of the film, this could be a star-making turn for Ms. Macdonald. The plot will remind some of Hustle & FlowŽ (2005), which was a great movie, and Eminems 8 MileŽ (2002), which was a good movie. Patti Cake$Ž is a notch below those, yet respectable enough in its own right to be worthy of your attention. Give it a chance. Like Patti, its not perfect, but it will win you over by the end. Q dan >> Danielle Macdonald received a standing ovation after “Patti Cake$” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January this year. Fox Searchlight purchased the distribution rights for $9.5 million, and the lm’s production budget was $1 million. FLORIDA WRITERS It’s all good in the newest Bad Hair Day ‘cozy mystery’ installmentQ Hair BrainedŽ by Nancy J. Cohen. Orange Grove Press. 276 pages. Trade paperback, $14.99; ebook, $4.99.This is Nancy J. Cohens 14th Bad Hair Day mystery, and given its vigor, humor and inventiveness, the series has a lot of life left in it. Protagonist Marla Vail runs her own hair salon. However, this occupation has never kept her from getting involved in dangerous myster-ies. Even before her marriage to Dalton, a local homicide detective, his cases had sort of become hers, and vice versa. Once again, they work together and apart to solve a complex series of mur-ders. When Dalton comes home with the news that their friends Tally and Ken are missing, the Vails life is rocked by the possible changes in their lives. Until they find out what happened, someone will have to take care of Luke, the missing couples son. And since Tally had made Marla the infants guardian, the responsi-bility falls to her. Soon enough, Ken turns up dead in the remains of a suspicious car accident and Tally, seriously injured, is in a deep coma. Upon investigation, what first looked like it could have been an accident starts to look more like murder. Ken, head of a local insurance company, had somehow become involved in a case pursued by a state agency that investigates insurance fraud. Was Ken being investigated, or was he assisting in an investigation? If the latter, was he killed because of what he knew? Or was the wreck set up with Tally as the intended victim? Marlas musings lead her to realize that her relationship with Tally, long an intimate friend, had waned. What was going on in Tallys life that she hadnt shared with Marla? She discovers that Tally had joined a somewhat peculiar womens club, some of whose members had been lured into a Russian criminal enterprise. This is the most exotic, but not the most important discovery that Marla makes. How do these discoveries connect with someone wanting Tally dead? Did Tally have a disgruntled employee working in her dress shop? While Marla pursues the Tally side of their investigation, Dalton presses the Ken dimension, sometimes with Marlas assistance. Would one of Kens employees want to get rid of him? Had he or his com-pany given a client a motive for murder? Why has a member of his staff been mur-dered? Why was someone working for the state anti-fraud agency murdered? Dear reader, you will find out and there will be surprises. But thats not all.You will get a detailed, inside view of how a hair salon operates, how an insur-ance company operates and how local law enforcement agen-cies work together „ or not. Addicted Bad Hair Day mystery readers will see Marla in a new light „ the light of pos-sible motherhood „ as she cares for baby Luke and softens a bit toward Daltons desire that they have their own children. Daltons teenage daughter Brianna is a delightfully well-drawn character, her curiosity and intelligence helpful in brainstorming motives and possibilities. Maybe shed like a sibling. She sure does a good job helping with Luke. To read the mysteries in this series is to soak up South Florida culture, both its attractions and its foibles. The town where Marla and Dalton have their home is, I would guess, pretty much like the town in which the author Cohen lives. The visits readers take to places in Boca Raton, to the Coral Springs branch of TooJays and other locations enhance the sense of place that the author handles so well. About the author Nancy Cohen is accomplished in her genre and craft. Her mastery of the cozy mysteryŽ category guarantees a good time, an inspiring adventure, a flock of well-defined characters, intricate plotting, plenty of suspense and many touches of delightful humor. Hair BrainedŽ con-cludes with promises of things to come „ things for which Tally will be fully conscious. Titles in the Bad Hair Day series have made the IMBA bestseller list, been selected by Suspense Magazine as Best Cozy Mystery and won third place in the Arizona Literary Awards. Ms. Cohen has also written the instructional guide, Writing the Cozy Mystery.Ž Her imagina-tive romances, including the Drift Lords series, have proven popular with fans as well. Her first book in this genre won the HOLT Medallion Award. When not busy writing, she enjoys fine dining, cruising, visiting Disney World and shopping. She resides in Plantation. Keep up with her at 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 en fo rcementagen-

FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 14-20, 2017 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT B15 scott SIMMONS Our treasures may come and go, but memories are forever COLLECTORS CORNERIf the devastation of Hurricane Harvey has taught us anything, its that nothing lasts forever. I thought about that last year as I prepared my house for Hurricane Matthew, hanging storm panels and screwing down awnings. It never was far from my thoughts as I prepared this year for a potentially more deadly storm, Hurricane Irma, the most powerful storm known to form in the Atlantic Ocean. I walked my property on a Wednesday morning and assessed the situation, giving an awning clip here an additional turn, testing the wing nuts on that hurricane panel there. There is great comfort in knowing you have done all you can do to protect the exterior of your house. The roof is new, the hurricane panels are tight, so its in Gods hands, as it were. As I did last year, I prepared to move Grandmas Moorcroft pottery lamp „ she always called it the good lampŽ „ from its perch atop an antique chest to a safer spot on the bedroom floor. I cleared the table and put things away, just in case there was a breech „ no need to have my treasures become missiles during a storm. I could do that much. As I write this I remember the stories my family shared with me of storms past. Aunt Cleo Douthit slept atop a counter in the Canal Point store my great-grandparents ran during the 1926 Miami hurricane, which swept across the state, killing hundreds in the Glades alone before heading across the state to Fort Myers. A few years later, Grandpa Fred Simmons weathered the 1928 hurricane in the brand-new Pahokee High School building. The women and children took shelter in interior hallways, he said, and the men spent the night of the storm mopping the rainwater that blew in around the windows. He was 21 years old and had come from North Carolina to visit a family friend. Instead, he became witness to a disaster that claimed thousands of lives. Something happened with that storm that bonded him to the community. He remained there 50 years and always regarded the Glades as home. My cousin Jane Thompson remembers that her dad had come to the Glades in the 1920s and shared a tar-paper shack with another man in the Belle Glade neighborhood of Chosen. Her dad had returned north before the 1928 storm and came back to Belle Glade after the storm to find no tarpaper shack and no friend. That man presumably lies buried in one of the mass graves of the dead who went unidentified in the storms aftermath. During the 1947 hurricane, my Uncle Thurmond Knight, who had rented a house in Palm Beach for the summer, thought he would be smart and park his brand-new Cadillac along A1A so it would not be flooded. Thurmond stepped outside after the storm, and his car looked fine until he walked around and saw the side facing east. The beach sand had blasted all the paint down to the raw sheet metal. My mothers family moved to Fort Myers in 1958. When Hurricane Donna roared through in 1960, Grandmas Moorcroft lamp got tucked in a closet, along with all the drapes; the piano and oriental carpet were placed on blocks in the event of flooding. Grandpa went down to the boat basin to check on his vessel during the calm as the eye of the storm passed, and Grandma fretted about his being out „ you never know when that respite from the storm will come to an end. As it happened, there was no flooding in East Fort Myers, and my grandparents lived another 40 years in that house, always telling the story of how the Coleman lantern they used to light the house burned so brightly the neighbors thought their power had been restored before anyone elses. In 2004, when Frances and Jeanne, the 2004 storms, roared into the Treasure Coast, I headed to Fort Myers. My mother and grandmother had come to the Palm Beaches to escape Hurricane Charley the month before. But no one who stayed in southern Florida could escape Hurricane Wilma. I remember sitting in my Lake Worth living room and watching as the large awning that shields the front of my house flexed and heaved with the winds of Wilma in 2005. I heard a boomŽ during that storm and was afraid it was the sound of my garage giving way. As it turned out, it probably was the Lutheran church that stood about 10 blocks south of me being demolished by one of the tornadoes Wilma generated „ there was nothing left but a slab. My losses were minimal „ a fence post or two snapped in the storm and I dealt with the inconvenience of being without power for 17 days „ inconsequential in the face of the loss so many others sustained. Weve seen the suffering these past weeks in Texas. People have lost their homes, their treasures and their security. May all of our losses be minimal with this storm. I hope we can learn from it to minimize our misery the next time a storm rolls through. And may the memories of treasures lost remain sweet for all of us. No storm can take those away. Q ANTIQUESVictorian furniture is so out of date that best work is treated as art BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVEL Large, ornate Victorian furniture is selling for low prices at auctions for many reasons. Houses are smaller and bedrooms have more windows and clos-ets, so there are fewer plain walls for large double beds or dressers. Plus, the elaborate carvings are out of style. A few makers are so important that their work is treated as art. John Henry Bel-ter, Alexander Roux, Joseph Meeks and John Jelliff are a few designers who still are getting very high prices; however, bargains also exist in well-made, styl-ish Victorian pieces manufactured away from the East Coast. The H.B. Mudge Furniture Co. of Cincinnati designed and made a Victorian suite consisting of a washstand with mirror, commode, dresser and a bed with a high, carved headboard and footboard. It descended in the Mudge family and was auctioned by Cowan Auctions of Cincinnati for $5,400 (includes buyers premium). The company was founded in 1837 and made many kinds of household furniture. Q: I inherited a large collection of HB Quimper dishes. They are hand painted with pictures of Breton peasants in out-door settings and are marked HB, Qui-mper, France,Ž F.303.D.201Ž and B.Y.Ž What are they worth? A: Tin-glazed handpainted pottery was made by three different factories in Quimper, France, starting in the 1700s. Pierre Bousquet founded a pottery in Quimper in 1708. Antoine de la Hubaud-iere became the factory manager in 1782, and the factory became the HB Factory (Hubaudiere-Bousquet). Two of the factories merged in 1913. HB Quimper merged with the others in 1968. After more changes in ownership, it became Henriot-Quimper, which still is in business. This mark was used from 1968 to 1984. The number after FŽ is the form number and the number after DŽ is the decor number. The initials B.Y.Ž are the initials of the painter. Your dishes are not very old and are worth about half what new Quimper sells for. Q: I have about 100 old baseball coins from the early 1960s. Most of them are plastic and some are metal. They came in Junket Brand products like Salada Tea. I have coins with Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Don Drysdale, Roberto Cle-mente, Early Wynn, etc. I also have about 20 football coins. Can you provide any information on these? A: Salada Tea and Junket were both part of Salada Foods Inc. (now part of Redco Foods Inc.). Individual coins picturing baseball and football stars were packed in Salada Tea and Junket products in 1962. The 1962 baseball set included 1-inch diameter plastic coinsŽ with a piece of paper picturing a player on one side. The complete set included 221 players, plus 40 variations. The 1963 baseball set called All Star Baseball CoinsŽ included 63 metal coins with paper inserts. The top 10 stars of each team were pictured. Coins for American League players had blue rims, and coins for National League players had red rims. Information about the player is on the reverse side. Holders and a box were issued to hold the coins. You have coins from both the 1962 and 1963 baseball sets. Many coins sell for less than $5, but superstars coins sell for much more. Recent prices include $45 for a 1962 Yogi Berra coin and $90 for a 1962 Roger Clemente coin. A complete set of 1962 coins, plus 1963 coins for Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris, sold at auction for over $1,800. Q: I recently bought a Watt bowl as a potential investment. Its very differ-ent from most Watt pieces Ive found, and I cant find any information on it. Its a light blue bowl with a black drip edge. It measures 10 inches across the top and is 3 inches high. The bottom is stamped with three rings and reads Watt Orchard Ware, U.S.A. 106.Ž Can you tell me what its value is and when it was made? A: Orchard Ware is both a Watt shape name and a pattern name. Eva Ziesel designed most of the shapes. It was decorated with two colors, dripped or spattered, in at least 18 different color combinations. Some pieces were decorated with hand-painted designs. Brown with white drip is the most common color combination. Orchard Ware was first shown in Watts 1959 c atalog. The number 106Ž is the mold number. Its value is $30. Q: I just bought a handcrafted silver ring with a multicolored flat stoneŽ with a tag that reads sterling silver with an authentic piece of Fordite.Ž But no one here knows what Fordite is. Can you help? A: We first learned about Fordite over 20 years ago. Many car manufactur-ers were closing their plants. Someone noticed that the floor where they had been painting the cars was covered with a thick layers of hard automobile paint. Since cars were made in many different colors, the floor had swirling patterns in the hardened material. Rock hounds and other collectors minedŽ the material, sometimes with permission and some-times after the plants were about to be torn down. Small pieces of this mined material are still available, and they usu-ally are made into jewelry. We have seen pendants and rings made with Fordite set in gold that sell for more than $1,000. Tip: It is best to wash marble with distilled water. Any trace of acid or iron in the water will cause deterioration or stains. Use soft soap, a bit of ammonia and a plastic container.
