Curfews orders continue as work week begins

Peaceful protests against the death of George Floyd turned ugly in Miami and Fort Lauderdale over the weekend, resulting in clashes with police and the issuance of curfews in some areas of South Florida.

Major corporation across the country are aligning themselves with the Black Lives Matter movement, including Nike, Netflix, Citigroup, the New York Times reported. #BlackLivesMatter has also appeared in many posts.

As of Monday morning, the curfew in Miami from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. was still in effect since the order said it would continue each night until repealed by further order. A Miami-Dade order postponed the reopening of beaches until the curfew is lifted. The curfew is from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. until it is lifted and cities can have stricter rules. The city of Fort Lauderdale order was issued Sunday and was in effect for 72 hours from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Broward County also issued a curfew that will last seven days, which started on Sunday, from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., the Sun Sentinel reported on Monday afternoon. The city of West Palm Beach curfew started at 9 p.m. Sunday and was in effect from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. for 72 hours.

The Fort Lauderdale and Miami orders commands people to remain in their homes and contain exceptions for emergency services. The West Palm Beach order allows people to travel to and from their workplaces if they have ID.

Peaceful protests Saturday night in Miami were followed by looting at Bayside Marketplace and cars set afire near the Miami Police Department headquarters. The looting sparked a backlash on some Twitter posts by some who said this wasn’t the way to honor the memory of Floyd, who died after a police officer kneeled on his throat. A peaceful protest in downtown Fort Lauderdale was followed by a relatively small skirmish between police and protesters near the Fort Lauderdale Main Library with police using stun grenades and tear gas.

A Tweet by Miami Herald reporter Douglas Hanks (@Doug_Hanks) said multiple Bayside workers said the marketplace was reopening at 11 a.m. on Monday.

The Palm Beach Post reported that I-95 was shutdown by protesters in West Palm Beach on Sunday and there were signs of possible looting in some stores. The march started at the Rosemary Square mixed-use development and went by the West Palm Police Department and then to I-95.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
