Their credentials are on full display in Southern statehouses where the partys brand dominates with super majorities; but then, they had good teachers. Their political predecessors were adept in using legislative tactics to perpetuate a status quo favorable to elite, special interests, too. Before the modern ascendance of the Republican Party in the states of the old Confederacy, the then Solid South was emblematic of singleparty rule by Democrats. For 70 years, they manipulated the levers of government almost at will. They turned white defiance of the rule of law into the threat of a hangmans noose, challenging racial equity and perpetuating with White Citizens Councils the enforcement of Jim Crow. As a governing majority, they had a policy checklist that included segregation; systemic disenfranchisement of legitimate voters; and discriminatory practices that sentenced both blacks and poor whites to decades of peonage and illiteracy. In 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court dealt a fatal blow to southern Democrats separate but equal obsession. The Brown v. Board of Education ruling put an end to its racial subterfuge, and affirmed educational equity for all children as a national imperative. The decision blew open the doors of justice in every schoolhouse in Dixie. Still, metaphorically speaking, the party was not over. Defy and delay became the rallying cry; and the party was eager to lead the vanguard of white resistance toward a morally bankrupt abyss. The tide went out for the Democrats when its leadership at the national level threw its support behind the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Soon after, the Republican presidential candidate, Richard Nixon, came to town. It was the beginning of game-over for the Democrats Solid South. Given this history, there is irony in how the old has become new again in sectional politics. Consider the absolutism with which present-day radicals of the right hold sway over GOP majorities in matters of political dissent. The radicals have successfully cowed the party and it has become as oppressive in its approach to governance as the Solid South Democrats used to be. With their refusal to raise the minimum wage, expand Medicaid, consider comprehensive immigration reform, uphold voting rights, and defend public education from the encroachment of privatization, the region seems to have thrown off the bondage of one self-serving master only to have inculcated another in its place. The new conservatives governing the statehouses are as committed to achieving the prosperity of the few at the expense of the many as their sectional predecessors once were. It is a brand of governance seldom producing abundance and prosperity for people of modest means. Southern states in majority occupy the bottom of the ladder measuring their citizens quality of life; and Thank God for Mississippi is the theme song they sing in praise of avoiding dead last. Yet it has never been easy to step out of the crowd and confront the strident voices that shout down calls for compromise and moderation that might lead to an improved result. Old conformities haunt our progress, enforced by the power of wealth and tribal privilege. Nonetheless, there are those who go against the dictates of their party, risking condemnation. Following the courts Brown v. Board decision, a little bravery went a long way in challenging political wrongs. Few white Southerners voiced their support for peaceful and expeditious desegregation of the public schools. It was a call to duty to country and above party. Ralph McGill was a syndicated columnist and an antisegregationist editor and publisher for The Atlantic Constitution. He wrote movingly about some of those individuals in his book, The South and the Southerner. The book notes, with few exceptions, the regions most influential leadership in the white community, from the statehouse, to the chambers of commerce, to the church pulpits, engaged in white resistance following the court decision. Those who resisted fought a lonely battle. McGill chronicled these and the other challenges of the region going forward, citing the racial divisions that existed throughout Southern society, sustained by housing segregation, employment discrimination, and inequality under the law. The South still suffers from failures of its political leadership to do right when it deeply matters. It is a lesson not learned that continues to trouble race relations nationally: think Ferguson, Mo. Rule by a single party rarely serves us well, especially when political absolutists lead and are unwilling to compromise or seek consensus, no matter the political party that demands their allegiance. They spawn ingrown, corrupt dynasties that fuel a downward spiral in the security and economic well-being of ordinary families as they consolidate their reach and power. We pay as a region and nation a steep price for failing to hold them accountable. We should know better. They share far too much in common with all the infamous politicians we have suffered in the past. Leslie Lilly is a native.

So wrote Henry David Thoreau in his 1849 essay, On the Duty of Civil Disobedience. The naturalist and pacifist asked, Shall we be content to obey them, or shall we endeavor to amend them, and obey them until we have succeeded, or shall we transgress them at once? His answer was simple: I say, break the law. One hundred and sixty-four years later, on May 15, 2013, Ken Ward Jr. and Jay OHara did just that. They navigated a small lobster boat, named The Henry David T., to a point off the Massachusetts coast near the enormous Brayton Point Power Station, a coal-fired power plant built in 1963 that is the largest source of carbon emissions in the region. They dropped anchor and blocked access to the pier, preventing a cargo ship from unloading 40,000 tons of coal. They suspended banners from their boat reading #CoalIsStupid and 50, a reference to the international climate action group 350.org. Three hundred fifty parts per million (ppm) is the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that scientists feel is the maximum level that will allow the planet to avoid catastrophic human-induced climate change. Ward and OHara succeeded in blocking the coal shipment. From the boat, they reported themselves to the local police and were later arrested by the U.S. Coast Guard. OHara, a Quaker and a sailmaker on Cape Cod, explained, We were charged with ... disturbing the peace, conspiracy to disturb the peace, negligent operation of a motor vessel and a failure to act to avoid a collision of a boat. They faced years in prison. They decided to mount a necessity defense, admitting that they broke the law, but claiming that they did so only to prevent a much greater harm, i.e., the burning of coal that increases global warming. Last Monday, Sept. 8, they finally went to court. Bristol County District A ttorney Sam Sutt er offered them a deal. He dropped all criminal charges against them in exchange for a guilty plea to a civil offense and a fine. D.A. Sutt er then went a step further a few steps, actually, to the plaza in front of the courthouse, where he shocked the two defendants and close to 100 of their supporters with a short speech: The decision (we) reached today... certainly took into consideration the cost to the taxpayers in Somerset, but was made with our concern for their children, the children of Bristol County and beyond, in mind. Climate change is one of the gravest crises our planet has ever faced. In my humble opinion, the political leadership on this issue has been gravely lacking... we were able to reach an agreement that symbolizes our commitment at the Bristol County District Attorneys Office to take a leadership role on this issue. Sutter s incredible demonstration of political leadership is timely, indeed. This week, the World Meteorological Organization released its latest Greenhouse Gas Bulletin, packed with dire statistics about the accelerating threat of climate change. The amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reached a new record high in 2013, the WMO reported, with current concentration of carbon dioxide at 396 ppm. The WMO also warned, ominously, The current rate of ocean acidification appears unprecedented at least over the last 300 million years. Defendant Ken Ward, a former deputy director of Greenpeace USA, noting the urgency he feels for the climate, told me, We should ... be taking emergency actions everywhere we can. And the very first emergency action is to stop burning coal. Henry David Thoreau is best known for his book Walden, in which he describes the year he spent living in a cabin he built on Walden Pond, near Concord, Mass. Thoreau opposed the 1847 U.S. invasion of Mexico. He was a staunch opponent of slavery. To protest these violent policies, he decided he would not pay taxes. When he was jailed for his protest, he was visited by his friend, the poet Ralph Waldo Emerson. It is said that when Emerson asked, Henry, what are you doing in there, Thoreau replied, Waldo, what are you doing out there? Thoreaus essay on civil disobedience was one of the first modern articulations of the resistance tactic of nonviolent noncooperation. His words and actions have inspired millions, among them Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. The Peoples Climate March will happen in New York City on Sunday, Sept. 21. Organizers expect it to be the largest march for the climate in history. The marchs slogan: To Change Everything, We Need Everyone. Sam Sutter says hell be there, as will the two activists he prosecuted. I asked the district attorney and the defendants if they would be marching together. They all smiled. Prosecutor Sutter s aid, Its certainly possible. Jay OHara concurred, Sounds like a plan. Denis Moynihan contributed research to this column. Amy Goodman is the host of Democracy Now!, a daily international TV/radio news hour airing on more than 1,200 stations in North America. She is the co-author of The Silenced Majority, a New York Times bestseller.Calling on men to prevail against domestic violenceThere is an old adage that seeing is believing, and for many Americans, the video of Ray Rice punching his thenfianc Janay Rice inside the elevator of an Atlantic City casino and dragging her unconscious body through the doors delivered a sharp slap of reality the kind of reality we face every day at The Shelter for Abused Women & Children. The 49 seconds of elevator footage catapulted Mr. Rices two-game penalty to an indefinite suspension of his football career; more importantly however, it spiraled the issue of domestic violence straight into our homes, our work places and our daily lives. There is plenty of blame to go around as to the mishandling of this case. We can point fingers at the legal system, NFL leadership, Mr. Rice and oh, yes, there is abundant blame directed at the victim. I would like to focus my comments on the bigger picture. For too long domestic violence has been seen as a womans issue, giving men license to tune out and largely be erased from the conversation. Victim blaming is pervasive in our society, as evidenced in Ms. Rices highly publicized apology for her role in her own beating. Many ask why did she marry him? Why does she stay? The real questions should be directed at the abuser the source of the problem. As a society, we should be asking why does he beat his partner? Why does he abuse young children? Why does he rape? The answers to these questions and the solutions to change patterns of abuse lie in the hands of men themselves. Silence, as too long demonstrated by the NFL, is a form of consent. We need to break the silence, and we need more men willing to step forward as allies in our efforts to end violence and abuse. In 2008, an all-male group of Shelter supporters did just that by establishing Gentlemen Against Domestic Violence. Inspired by The Shelters groundbreaking Raising Gentlemen program, these role models provide funding and support to stop the generational cycle of abuse. Raising Gentlemen has been presented to more than 2,000 young men in local middle and high schools, challenging their beliefs about men, women and their roles in society. Traditional stereotypes of men as controlling, aggressive and gaining power through violence are replaced with truths that men can be gentle, compassionate and kind without risking their manhood. The Shelter is proud of these highly recognized community leaders who have stepped forward to take ownership of this issue to positively impact the lives of our mothers, daughters, sisters and loved ones who are routinely impacted by gender violence. The Raising Gentlemen program will have the longest running effect on reducing domestic violence in our community, says Jim Jessee, a founding member of Gentlemen Against Domestic Violence. Bringing this concept to men and boys who are most likely to be involved in an incident of domestic violence is attacking the problem at the grassroots level, he adds. We must continue to expand this program. If you are a gentleman who wants to help prevent, protect and prevail over domestic violence in your community, call me at 775-3862. Change begins with you.

Heres what I see on the horizon: There will be no booking allowed on third-party websites (as we have already seen from one major carrier). Rather, passengers must book through an airlines dedicated site. This portends the end of all independent sites. We will no longer be able to shop price and schedules unless we search each airline site for the best deal. This is great for the airlines, though, because they will face less scrutiny when it comes to prices, schedules and their own quirky rules and restrictions. No seat assignments. The mad dash to get your seat of choice will become the norm unless youre willing to pay for priority boarding.Hmm. Why not have standing room only, the same way stadiums do? Passengers could be seat-belted to each other with the person at each end seat-belted to the fuselage. That would eliminate seats altogether, which equals more passengers per flight, which results in more revenue! If the airlines can charge for priority boarding, why not priority waiting? Families could be restricted to the rear corner of the gate, along with passengers who refused to pay for it. What about priority drop off? Passengers willing to pay extra could dropped at the curb, while everyone else would have to walk from some far off drop spot. This would curtail traffic congestion and could be sold under the guise of heightened safety and security. Baggage will continue to be billed on the basis of size, weight and number limitation per customer, but limits will decrease until only those persons traveling to nudist colonies without so much as a toothbrush will be able to board without significant surcharges. Forget about all food, snacks, drinks. Bring your own? No more. Not even formula for the baby? No. Flight attendants will be replaced by robots and recorded messages. They will be paid slightly less that todays flight attendants. Lavatory use will be limited to one visit per person per flight, accessible by voucher code. Second visit subject to charge. Third visit, double the charge. Forget your code? Cue the robot: You should have gone at home. In-flight cell phone use will actually become the norm under the general heading of Anything to Further Irritate the Passengers. All personal activities (sleeping, reading, listening to music) will be rendered impossible by the incessant flow of airline ads, infomercials, lodging, dining and entertainment recommendations per Anything to Further Irritate the Passengers (see above). Passengers not complying will be asked to leave the plane. If they can charge us to priority board (about which no one is really excited), why not charge for getting off, about which everyone is ecstatic (especially those who have hips wider than Twiggy)? Priority disembarkation would be done by number. Robot says: Passengers holding numbers 1 through 8 can now get off the plane. Everyone else must remain in your seat. Hey! Get back there! As with priority drop-off, why not priority pick-up? No one, except the last person in line, gets to leave the airport without paying a little extra. Lets face it. We have no choice but Hobsons Choice: Pay through the nose for first class (feeling more like coach all the time), or squeeze into the sardine can. Funny, but every other industry, except perhaps health care, bends over backward to keep the customer happy and to repeatedly earn our loyalty. Even the most modest motel room comes with shampoo, conditioner, lotion, a little coffee maker, free local calls, free half-hour of long distance, free WiFi. Its as though they actually want our business. How about that? If only the airlines could take a page from their playbook. Sorry this wasnt the fun piece I had planned. Doubly sorry if Ive given the airlines any ideas for additional revenue sources.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 18-24, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYhuman trait that we should accept and cautiously love? Are mistakes born of the limitless if sometimes overreaching imaginations of people like Thomas Edison, whose greatest successes were built on failed models and ideas that gave way to lightbulbs; an essential part of our humanity, giving rise to scientific and personal theories that, even if they are ultimately disproved, provide the foundation for how we understand the universe and move through the world; for how we survive; for late night comedy? The answer is, of course, both. The journalist and book critic Kathryn Schulz explores this paradox in Being Wrong (2010, HarperCollins). An intrepid investigator, she uncovers in our fallibility a landscape as sometimes harsh and beautiful and alien, as common and boring and mysterious, as rich with hilarity and horrors and astonishment, as the Everglades or a democracy. In 344 pages she explores the depths and shallows of where we wander astray through a kaleidoscopic lens of culture high and low; from Plato to Beyonc, science to magic, lost car keys to lost faith, love most of all, and all points in between. There are two schools of thought on mistakes, she explains. The pessimistic school sees error as a perversion of all that is right and good, while the optimistic school defines error as an almost limitless number of things, but in general one of those forces, like sap and sunlight, that imperceptibly helps another organic entity us human beings to grow up. That seems like common sense if youre talking about a kid falling off a bike, but it becomes increasingly difficult (yet still essentially the same) when the stakes are raised; when a doctor makes a decision that kills a patient, or a belief system collapses; or in the case of former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan, when his long-standing belief that a capitalist economy will regulate itself came crashing down. That is when, Ms. Schulz writes, you have suffered in the space of pure wrongness. TESTIFYING TO A FEDERAL GOVERNment committee in 2008, Mr. Greenspan admirably did what we all shrink from, only on a colossal scale. When one official pointed out he was wrong, Ms. Schulz reports, Greenspan said, Precisely. Thats precisely the reason I was shocked, because I had been going for 40 years or more with very considerable evidence that it was working exceptionally well. Fortunately for Mr. Greenspan, who appears something like loose skin draped over a classroom skeleton, being wrong is also a sort of fountain of youth. Be completely, spectacularly wrong: about your wife, your God, your job, your stock market investments, sexual orientation, politics, or all of it put together. Lose, and lose huge, writes Ms. Schulz; drastic error makes us young again, in both the hardest and the best of ways. She interviews one woman who lost her belief in God, then lost her belief in atheism, finding herself without any overarching belief at all, like a kid lost in the middle of Manhattan. Still, Ms. Schulz writes, put a kid in the middle of Times Square, and, lost or not, sooner or later hell look up in awe Eventually, too, we get our act together and go explore that big new space the one outside us, but also the one within us. In fact, perhaps the chief thing we learn from being wrong is how much growing up we still have to do. All of us end up living out the consequences of decisions we made when we are young, points out Dr. Sam Sewell, a psychotherapist and member of Mensa, the high I.Q. society, in Naples. You talk to just about any adult and theyll tell you the decade they screwed up their life the most is their 20s, Mr. Sewell said, partly joking that a good deal of the population is a result of those mistakes.Childhoods endPop artist Andy Warhol was a pioneer in the fuller, optimistic understanding of mistakes. His novel a (1968, Grove Press) was more or less a verbatim transcript of taped conversations but with fictional names. There were hundreds of typographical and other errors in the text, which he insisted remain intact. The manuscript was the worst thing Id ever seen, recalled the books editor Arnold Leo, in a 2012 interview in The Believer magazine. It took me a bit to absorb that as an idea that had any merit, but suddenly a light went on. I began to see what Andy was about, you know? It was like the characters he would bring into his movies. He didnt care how imperfect they were, or how much they wanted attention and were willing to do anything to get it. That was the reality, you see. It was reality that fascinated him. Mr. Leo called the novel a kamikaze attack on the culture. It was a time when a lot of preconceived and very restricting assumptions and values were really being ripped apart, he said. While there was a certain amount of destruction in the process, it was also liberating and necessary to allow healthy growth. As Mr. Warhol explains in his nonfiction book, The Philosophy of Andy Warhol, (1975) mistakes are also inherently funny. And he liked to work with employees who misunderstood his instructions at least a little. If people never misunderstand you, and if they do everything exactly the way you tell them to, theyre just transmitters of your ideas, and you get bored with that, he wrote. But when you work with people who misunderstand you, instead of getting transmissions you get transmutations, and thats much more interesting in the long run. His tolerance for mistakes and common subject matter was a form of realism that took on a different form in works like his Campbells soup can prints. His was a humanist (to err is human) ethos, instead of striving for what by comparison looked like false canonical greatness, the false prestige that burdened other artists and other types of professionals. MR. WARHOLS UNDERSTANDING of mistakes helped usher in a cultural shift that accelerated with the Internet and the more transparent world were all exposed to in which mistakes are broadcast instantly everywhere, be it celebrity sex tapes or the corrections tacked onto the end of seemingly every other New York Times article these days, an institution with a slogan that screams false prestige (and one I read every day nonetheless). We always knew our heroes could be drug addicts and get the facts wrong sometimes but that information has never before been so in your face and routine. Thats why the local media freak-out over Trey Radel getting busted for buying cocaine, and his subsequent resignation as a congressman early this year and mea culpa TV interview, felt so beside the point to me; it had less to do with his real job performance and more to do with the false prestige that comes with being a politician, which is why so many people still act shocked and bitter when one of them snorts coke or has sex with a hooker. BUT OUR TOLERANCE FOR MISTAKES can also curdle into something icky. This is apparent in the recent Dominos pizza commercial with the cheerful slogan failure is an option. (Oh how novel, oh how refreshing.) And yet it still doesnt mean that failure is normally a fun, happy thing its complicated, a paradox and this childish, patronizing ad seems disingenuous for suggesting so. A Dominos pizza chef is also featured, looking ashen faced as the spokesperson notes her attempt at a cookie pizza. I dont wanna talk about it, she pouts. It was a joke in the ad but it was more or less the reaction, also, of about 15 people I asked to tell me about their mistakes. I dont feel comfortable revealing to the public even a single error in my life or career, one professor said in a surprisingly emphatic email. More than usual, people were out of town or had prior commitments or personal issues or respectfully declined or just didnt answer emails or told me honestly that they werent comfortable talking about their drunken sexcapades or mistweets and other failures, personal and professional; at least not with a reporter, in public, and I dont necessarily disagree. Seth Miller, executive director of The Innocence Project of Florida, which WRONGFrom page 1 COURTESY PHOTOFormer Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan was surprised that after 40 years of being right, he was wrong about the economic forecast.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 18-24, 2014 NEWS A9works to overturn wrongful convictions, is familiar with people who dont want to admit error. That includes prosecuting attorneys who may have convicted Mr. Millers clients. Folks dont like to admit theyre wrong, he said. And to concede to be wrong in that sense would really turn their whole word view that allows them to do their job upside down. (They) have to really have a strong abiding conviction that what theyre doing is right in every instance. Others might be afraid of what their colleagues will think of them, or that it could tarnish the prestige of their profession in general, as a doctor I spoke with suggested about medical errors in particular. Well, surprise, surprise, Ms. Schulz writes. Our attachment to our own sense of rightness runs deep It isnt that we care so fiercely about the substance of our claims. It is that we care about feeling affirmed, respected and loved. But it may also be difficult to recall mistakes if they are transformed by time into something else. So as not to wilt of long-term mortification, we find the upside in the error, the silver lining that made it actually a happy accident in the long run. Some things stick out as glaring errors so painful and purposeless that you might have to turn away, as if from the sun, at least for now A mistake is a mistake when you define it that way; when you see it as something that doesnt belong in a picture, said Fort Myers psychologist Rose Thorn. And its my feeling that most of the things we see as mistakes are because our view isnt wide enough. So many, maybe countless tiny errors, are transformed into knowledge disconnected from the original lesson; if we could freeze the frame on each of our mistakes, what we would see in the center every time would be change, Ms. Schulz writes. By now we know so well that a stove is hot that the first scary, disorienting recognition of painful heat may be blurred or gone. At any rate, it was a long time ago and the details no longer really matter. But the feeling remains.Lasting aches It was many years ago as a young man that Dobie Pasco, a once-heavy drinker and motorcycle trickster, fell off the bike and broke his collarbone. As he described the incident, at his home in Port Charlotte, he lightly touched his shoulder; it still aches from time to time, reminding him of his youth, and of another ache closer to his heart that lives on, not too painful in the light of the afternoon talking with me, but at darker, lonelier times, coming back across the years undiminished, and working its way into his many poems. In one poem, he writes:I lost contact with her Years ago But have never lost contact With the lasting ache Of loneliness and of lossShe was not by any means his only love; Mr. Pasco writes often about heartache, and called one of his poems a lie, saying that the heartache expressed in the poem didnt reflect the fact that he often feels just fine. Still, he says of her now, Ive never had anyone love me as much, both understand and love me as much as she did, I think. They met in college, but he doesnt know where she is now, wasnt able to locate her on Google, is half afraid to find out if she is still alive or dead. It is not clear where the couple went wrong but he often turns over in his mind dumb things he did: she was going to come and live with him in Traverse City, Mich. but he found a room at a place where she couldnt stay. So she lived and worked as a teacher in Midland to the south. When they met halfway, at a hotel in Clare, near the end of the 1960s, he was loaded by the time she arrived. That was stupid. Just stupid I dont think I ever saw her after that, but I think we talked after that. She had some paintings of his and asked if he wanted them back, he recalled; he didnt get that it would be a good excuse to see her again. Its amazing how dense you can be sometimes, you know? One night, she was waiting for him to return home, in her car, and he dropped off some other woman who was living there at the house. She saw him give the woman a kiss goodnight. Another time, he was going to pick her up at the bus station on a cold snowy night, but fell asleep instead. Was that me who did that? Who was that person? he wonders now. And did he really learn anything from it? Would he do it all again? If he had made fewer mistakes would she and he have married and taken over the bean farm her parents ran? Would he have, in fact, ended up a bean farmer instead of a disability examiner for Social Security? Would he have ended up a poet in Florida? He concludes, I dont know. I dont know for sure. In another poem, he wrote: We were going somewhere Neither knew whereAnd in another:To this day, I do not know Why I ever, Ever Let her goFunny mistakes Six hundred people might pack the West Palm Beach Improv on any given night to hear big-name comics perform. Will Watkins is one of the house emcees. A 28-year-old comedian in his own right who lives in Lake Worth, Mr. Watkins plans to move to New York City this fall to pursue his career as a comic. If nobody ever made any mistakes, I dont think there would even be a comedy club, he said. People come to laugh at things other people have done wrong, and which they could imagine happening to them. Thats one reason why The Three Stooges are so hilarious, he suggests. Pretty much everybody has fallen off of something at some point, tripped, hit their head. Thats why theyre funny because we can picture ourselves in that situation, Mr. Watkins said. His comic material itself is rich with his own foibles and follies, but making a mistake on stage failing to be funny can be a stomach-churning experience. He keeps a notebook in his back pocket to record potential comic material throughout the day. Not unlike the scientific method, perfecting his material is a trial and error activity, honed before multiple audiences and at sparsely attended open-mics, before taking the A-material to paying gigs. He adds, You need to make mistakes in comedy. You can learn a lot more from bombing than you can from killing When you first start out thats the most terrifying moment in your life: when you expect there to be a laugh and there isnt one. Those jokes are your ideas and your beliefs, so its not just that theyre judging your jokes theyre judging you as a person. The pros learn to turn the silence into the next joke. Johnny Carson would actually bomb on purpose so he could make fun of the joke that didnt work. Then you can show everybody that youre human. It makes it that much more visceral.Miscalculation One subject in which error is often cut and dry, no getting around it, is mathematics. Richard Schnackenberg, assistant professor and chair of the department of mathematics at Florida Gulf Coast University, doesnt recall exactly the long, advanced calculus problem that he was solving, many, many years ago; filling up three whiteboards and taking the entire 50-minute period as a group of his honors undergraduate students at the University of Wisconsin watched him carefully, the young graduate-school teaching assistant, showing them how its done until the stinging moment when, just before the bell rang, a young man who ended up going to Harvard medical school said, what about this? Hed made a mistake near the beginning, on the first whiteboard, making all the rest wrong as well. I learned in my teaching career rather early that you eat humble pie sometimes, he said. It was sort of the first time that had happened to me. As I said, none of us ever get through math without making mistakes. He tries to impress on his students today that the best thing they can do is to go up to the board and make a big mistake a memorable lesson and one they hopefully wont make when the consequences are higher later on. Oh absolutely Im very very glad it happened, he said. I think its, well especially when youre fresh into graduate school you dont know everything although you may think you do and thats a quick waker-upper when you realize you dont.Misplaced hateI was similarly woken up when I was 15 and flipping through CDs at a music store. I dont know if I had ever even heard a song by Prince, but I may have heard other kids at our school talk about him sneeringly. In any case, I came across a Prince album. I hate Prince, I told my friend who was standing next to me. Why? he said suddenly. I looked back at Prince, confused. Because some people hate Prince just to hate him, my friend said gently. That helps keep me in check, always. But even at this writing I know that kind of mindless, spiteful judgment is a mistake Ive made again and again; maybe in each instance hoping to find some reason for that hate, other than it just existing inside me, a reminder that being wrong can be a condition rather than an isolated incident. (Being wrong) reminds us that, having been wrong in the past, we could easily be wrong again and not just in the abstract but right now, here in the middle of this argument about pickles or constellations or crumb cake, Ms. Schulz writes. Life and deathEven in medicine, when a mistake costs a patient her life, especially in such a scenario, the opportunity for that incident to shed light on everything that comes after it to prevent it from happening again is located directly at the center of the error. But to find it and expose it, doctors need an environment in which they are able to talk more openly about their mistakes than they usually do, said Dr. Brian Goldman, an emergency room physician at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, and a medical journalist whose latest book, The Secret Language of Doctors, will be published in the United States next year. In 2011 he spoke to an audience about his mistakes through TED, a nonprofit that hosts thousands of short talks on just as many subjects. Dr. Goldman told the crowd it was late enough in his career that he wouldnt mind sacrificing some of his false prestige. Doctors make mistakes all the time, he said, but for many like him it seemed part of the ethos that they should, Never ever ever make a mistake That was the message I absorbed in medical school. And then one day he diagnosed a woman with congestive heart failure, treated her and sent her home, instead of following his instinct to keep her there longer and she ended up back later that day, and ultimately dead. Instead of experiencing the healthy shame that comes with apologizing to the family and discussing the mistake with colleagues, it was bottled up and covered up. Dr. Goldman got a standing ovation for his candor, but even if the audience was pleased his colleagues may not have felt the same. Its not just the shame for our own DOMINOS PIZZA COMMERCIALThe recent Dominos pizza commercial totes the cheerful slogan Failure is an option. WIKIMEDIA COMMONSThe Three Stooges, circa 1938, proved messing up can be funny.SEE WRONG, A10 Pretty much everybody has fallen off of something at some point, tripped, hit their head. Thats why theyre funny because we can picture ourselves in that situation, Will Watkins, a house emcee for West Palm Beach Improv

NOW OPEN! Dr. Gottschalk is proud to Announce his New Location! Pediatric ENT of Southwest Florida239-931-6248 ACCEPTS MOST MAJOR INSURANCES. All forms of medicaid and medicaid HMO Fellowship Trained Pediatric Otolaryngologist between 690,000 and 748,000 patients are affected by medical errors in the U.S. every year; 44,000 to 98,000 dieMistakes in medicine are common, but doctors are understandably reluctant to discuss them. mistakes but the shame we feel for the mistakes of our colleagues, he told me. Part of it is we are angry with them for making mistakes, for breaking the fantasy of a physician who never makes mistakes. We have not had sufficient curiosity about errors. When youre ashamed, youre not curious. Doctors may be worried that an apology to a patient could get them sued, but thats the exception instead of the norm, Dr. Goldman said. It turned out it does the opposite, he said. It actually placates people. Too, 35 states have passed Im sorry rules, protecting doctors from facing malpractice legislation because of an apology. And when the University of Michigan medical system implanted an apologize and explain policy, annual legal fees dropped from $3 million to $1 million, Ms. Schulz notes. Dr. Goldman believes patients who suffer economic losses, for instance, clearly should be compensated. But he says in general that a lawsuit is a terrible way for families to gain closure, and a terrible way for health-care providers to learn about mistakes. (It is) argumentative, polarizing and slow. We need a more nimble approach, a faster approach to dealing with errors. He is in favor of greater transparency in health care. For instance, he pointed out a colleague is inventing a black box, like a flight data recorder but for the operating room. Meanwhile, between 690,000 and 748,000 patients are affected by medical errors in the U.S. every year; 44,000 to 98,000 die, Ms. Schulz reports; it is the eighth leading cause of death, worse than breast cancer and motor vehicle accidents. We all have to get away from the oh my God, an error to I wonder how that happened and how can we design a system to detect that error as soon as possible, prevent it, Dr. Goldman said. Not in a gotcha way but in a loving, supportive way. Unreliable witness In journalism and especially in the courtroom, we give credence to firstperson accounts, the witness. But in another context, modern literature, Ms. Schulz points out, first-person accounts are practically uniform in their unreliability, the forever unreliable narrator. I think its agreed upon that the leading cause of wrongful conviction is eyewitness misidentification, said Mr. Miller of The Innocence Project of Florida. Even though it is often opposed by law enforcement and prosecuting attorney associations, he said, safeguards should be in place so innocent people dont end up in jail for years and decades, as at least 1,400 people in the United States have and those are only the ones we know about. Changes include police lineups with good fillers, those who stand for the lineup should all resemble the general description of the suspect. Instructions to witnesses should take pressure off them to make an identification. An independent administrator should be appointed to the lineup so there is no opportunity to influence a witnesses decision. Finally, witnesses should give a confidence statement, in which they describe how confident they are in their choice. Executive functionFortunately, our brain does accumulate stored wisdom based on our experiences, including mistakes. And what your brain lacks in youthful speed and storage capacity, as you grow older is in many ways compensated by the brains ability to take shortcuts based on your stored wisdom, explained Dr. Mike R. Schoenberg, Ph.D., a licensed psychologist and chief of the neuropsychology division of the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine. Higher functions such as problem solving, abstract reasoning, prediction of outcomes, impulse control, and the ability to modify your behavior based on feedback, observations and context sometimes referred to as executive function may continue to develop and change into your 30s, 40s, and beyond. What you can do to reduce error is mostly common sense, he said: dont make rushed or emotional decisions, and get enough sleep coffee and five-hour energy drinks dont make good substitutes. As for his own mistakes, The list is long, my friend, said Dr. Schoenberg, who is 42. I recognize that some of my professional decisions have been made by me wanting to find what I believe will be a more rapid solution to a problem, and sometimes the rush to make a quick decision that I think will solve the problem turns out to have more long term consequences that I didnt anticipate when I made the decision. So Ive been learning to stop doing that so much. WRONGFrom page 9

Conservancy hosts information sessions about amendment set for November ballotOn Election Day Tuesday, Nov. 4, a historic conservation initiative will give Florida voters a chance to directly decide the future of the states water and environmentally sensitive lands. Amendment One dedicates existing funds to acquire and restore Florida conservation and recreation lands. There would be no increase in taxes, as the amendment will simply take funds historically used for this purpose and redirect them back to their original intended use. The Conservancy of Southwest Florida is holding two free information sessions for the public to learn more about the impact of Amendment One. All are welcome. The first session takes place at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 23, and the second is at noon Thursday, Oct. 2. Both take place in Eaton Conservation Hall on the Conservancy campus at 1495 Smith Preserve Way, just south of The Naples Zoo off Goodlette-Frank Road.

A nerds rhapsodyNicholas Feltons latest annual recap of his personal communications data is now available, for just $30. Key findings, graphically presented, of Nicholas busy 2013 (according to a report by FiveThirtyEight.com): He received 44,041 texts and 31,769 emails, had 12,464 face-to-face conversations and 320 phone calls (all detailed by communicatee, from where, at what time, in what language). He reported 385 conversations, for example, with female cashiers, and that 54,963 exclamation points were used across all methods of written communication. (The 2012 report went for $35, but is, along with 2010 and 2011, sold out, according to feltron.bigcartel.com). Cant possibly be true The U.K.s Barnet Council got aggressive in August against a landlord in Hendon, in north London, who had defied an earlier order to stop offering a too-small apartment for residential rental. Landlord Yaakov Marom said tenants were still eager for the room even though the entryway required most people to drop to all fours, since it was less than 28 inches high (and therefore a fire-code violation). Council officers checking on the earlier order against Mr. Marom found a couple still residing there, paying the equivalent of $685 a month. When he was 19, Rene Lima-Marin (with a pal) robbed two Aurora, Colo., video stores at gunpoint and, winning no favors from the judge, received back-toback sentences totaling 98 years. In 2008, eight years into the sentence, Lima-Marin was mistakenly released and until this year was a model citizen, employed, married with a son, on good terms with his parole officer. However, the mistake was found in January, and he was returned to prison, and according to his lawyers in their August appeal, the original sentence has been reimposed, thus moving his release date to the year 2104. Among the more than 350 convicted violent felons whose right to carry guns has been restored over the past six years by the state of Georgia were 32 who had killed another person and 44 who were sex offenders, according to an August report in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. As pointed out by ThinkProgress. com, among those who once again can carry is Dennis Krauss, a former Glynn County police officer convicted of raping a woman after a traffic stop. According to the 2003 Georgia Court of Appeals decision affirming his conviction, Officer Krauss had drawn his service weapon and said he wanted to anally penetrate the woman with it. (However, he was convicted only for his extortionate demand for sex.) On Aug. 21 and 22, in front of Linwood Howe Elementary School in Culver City, Calif., traffic officials posted a towering parking regulation sign pole (reportedly, 15 feet high) with at least eight large white signs, one on top of the other in familiar red or green lettering, restricting access to the schools curb lane. Each sign contains orders either to not park or to park only under certain conditions, each with its specific hours or other fine-print limitations. The mayor ordered the signs replaced on Aug. 22. Close enough for government workFlorida was one of 26 states to decline billions in federal funding under the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) to establish their own state insurance exchanges (including expanding their state Medicaid programs). Florida legislators chose instead to offer a separate state program, funded at less than $1 million, to provide a small level of assistance, including help to the 764,000 people whose low income qualified neither for Medicaid nor Obamacare subsidies. The Tampa Bay Times reported in August that according to the most recent tally, the nine private plans under Florida Health Choices had registered 30 people (26 of whom receive only discount plans for prescription drugs or vision care). (Tampa Bay Times, 8-28-2014) Wait what? Guests at the May wedding of Shona Carter-Brooks in Ripley, Tenn., reported that the brides idea for integrating her month-old daughter into the ceremony consisted of tying her (well-secured, she said later) to the long train of her wedding dress, dragging the child as the bride walked the aisle. Ms. CarterBrooks was forced to take to her Facebook page in defense: People always have something negative to say, she wrote, but her wedding was exclusive and epic, according to People magazine. For their first anniversary in August, Londoners Dan MacIntyre and Dunya Kalantery decided on an odd commemoration: their outsized fascination with their citys notorious 2013 crisis over the 15-ton fatberg that clogged a sewer line. They giddily donned waders and went exploring for more masses of the congealed-oil-and-sanitary-wipes, but told The Guardian that they mostly encountered only smaller chunks. (Update: Their timing was off; a fatberg as long as a 747 was spotted in a sewer in west London about a week later.) First-world dilemmaPlastic surgeons, first in University of Missouri research in 2000 and recently in a study by Singapore doctors in the journal of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, have postulated that the ideal navel is basically vertically shaped with slight hooding and, of course, an innie. As reported on The Today Show, the earlier study analyzed photos of 147 females aged 18 to 62, while the Singapore surgeons gazed at shots of 37 Playboy playmates and used a computerized tool to measure vertical ratio, midline horizontal position, length from the xiphoid process ... to the lower limit of the vulvar cleft, and how nearly oval-shaped the belly buttons were.

This years theme, Join the Voices for Recovery: Speak Up, Reach Out, encourages people to openly discuss mental health and substance use disorders and the reality of recovery and aims to foster public understanding and acceptance of behavioral health conditions. At its Recover Month awards ceremony Thursday evening, Sept. 25, DLC will celebrate four local individuals and organizations for their support of those in recovery. The program starts at 5 p.m. at the New Hope Community Center, 7676 Davis Blvd. All are welcome. This years honorees are: The PAWS Assistance Dogs program is being honored as DLCs volunteer pet therapy partner. PAWS Assistance Dogs are specially trained, intuitive and compassionate canines that provide much needed assistance to those in need. PAWS brings its pups to train with DLC residents before the canines are placed with disabled veterans. The puppies practice healthy socialization and therapy skills while the centers clients experience firsthand the numerous benefits of pet therapy including lowered anxiety and blood pressure, increased feelings of comfort, improved mood, increased positive socialization and reinforcement of gentle interactions. Participants also learn positive strategies for behavior modification that can help them as they learn to manage their recovery. Vivian Parziale is being honored for her leadership in the David Lawrence Center Alumni Association and a recovery community volunteer. Having achieved more than seven years of sobriety, Ms. Parziale volunteers her time to sponsor others in their journey to recovery and shares her experience, strength and hope with women by facilitating weekly 12-steps meetings in area jails and at the DLCs Crossroads addic-Recent victories come in threes for NCH systemNCH has recently scored three victories in key areas. First, we became the fourth hospital in Florida to be designated an HIMSS Analytics Stage 7 system for utilizing information technology and adopting the use of electronic medical records. There are eight stages (0-7) that measure a hospitals implementation and utilization of information technology applications. Four outside examiners spent a full day evaluating our IT system and noted that we have maximized our tools to bring better quality, more coordination and safer care to the patients we serve. Simultaneously we have become more efficient. The reviewers appropriately challenged us to use our system to improve our communitys health, to connect in new and novel ways to keep folks healthy as we migrate from a repair-shop mentality to one focused on health and prevention. We have set a goal to use IT to intervene in an illness before a patients condition worsens. Known as predictive analytics, it will also help us learn who is at risk in an outpatient setting so that we can intervene early to make a change for the better. Second, we are now in week three of converting the NCH Physician Group of 111 doctors, physician assistants and nurse practitioners to the Cerner system. Notwithstanding the expected random glitches, the conversion effort has been pretty remarkable, thanks to team members led by Chief Administrative Officer Zach Bostock, IT application leader Beth Cooper and application manager Eileen Connolly-McDermott, and including analysts John Kershetsky and Charity Dawley, R.N. and trainers/support experts Julio Irizarry, Sonia Karth, Naomi Leaman, Helen McMannus, Nicholl Talley, Eddy Torres and Allison Zablo. Third, we were recognized by the Naples Daily News as having the best hospital cafeteria in the area at our North Naples campus, with our downtown cafeteria taking second place.

Thats especially true if you are a resident in a nursing home or a patient in a hospital. The experience of visiting with a therapy pet can soothe frazzled nerves, revive dormant memories and bring smiles and laughter in places where those things are often in short supply. Visits from pets can have significant health and emotional benefits for people in many different situations and types of facilities. Petting an animal is not only calming, it stimulates conversation. And contact with a pet can accelerate recovery from surgery. Pet visits take many different forms. Most of us think of them at nursing homes or hospitals, but animal visitation teams also go to such places as schools for students with special needs and hospice facilities for people with terminal illnesses. Some pets and their handlers participate in programs at schools and libraries that help children improve their reading skills by reading books to pets. Have you ever thought of making facility visits with your dog, cat or rabbit? Its not as easy as just signing up I should know. My dog Harper, a cavalier King Charles spaniel, has flunked therapy training twice because shes just a little too enthusiastic about wanting to greet people. Pets who make facility visits can be purebreds or mixed breeds. Some have been adopted from shelters. The only requirement is that they have the right personality. Both pet and handler must undergo training and evaluation before they can begin to participate in therapy programs. Here are some things to know if youre interested in getting started: Dogs and cats must be at least 1 year old before they can make visits. Pocket pets, such as rabbits, guinea pigs and rats, can be 6 months old. Dogs should enjoy meeting strangers and have good basic obedience skills. Qualifications include being able to greet people calmly; walking politely without pulling, jumping on people or stealing food; being comfortable in crowded situations; willing to sit patiently for petting; calming down quickly after praise or play; getting along with other animals; being unfazed by people using canes, crutches, walkers or wheelchairs; and taking treats without snapping or lunging for them. Cats, bunnies and other pocket pets should be relaxed and friendly, willing to be handled by strangers and calm in the presence of loud noises and unpredictable situations. They may also need to be comfortable wearing a harness and leash or riding in a basket. Pets must be clean and healthy, with short, filed nails that wont scratch patients. Some organizations do not permit visits by pets who are fed a raw diet. Others restrict visits by pit bull-type dogs. Handlers must be able to commit to a regular schedule of visits. People in facilities come to count on seeing them, and it can be a big disappointment if the animal doesnt show up. They should also be comfortable talking to strangers and answering questions about their pets. Managing an animals comfort level is a priority. Making visits can be tiring or stressful for pets, even if they enjoy the attention. Visits typically last 45 minutes to an hour. Teams make stops at different rooms, wherever their presence is requested, or they may go to one large room where people who want to meet with pets have gathered. For more information about training for animal-assisted visits, contact organizations such as Pet Partners (petpartners.org), Love on a Leash (loveonaleash.org), Therapy Dogs International (tdi-dog.org), Therapy Dogs Inc. (therapydogs.com), Paws for Friendship (pawsforfriendshipinc.org) and Reading Education Assistance Dogs (therapyanimals.org/R.E.A.D.html).

Our PrideCAR WASH & DETAIL CENTER FREE HAND WASH INSIDE & OUT WITH WINDOW TINTCOMPLETE DETAILING SERVICE FOR YOUR THE DIVA DIARIESConfessions of a happily married woman on Match.com I swear, I dont know how single girls who are dating online do it its almost like a part-time job. I know this because I have dived into the choppy waters of match.com in the name of helping two of my friends, and as a married woman with a full life and household to maintain, Im telling you, its keeping me very busy. Before I go and spark a blaze of rumors, I promise, I AM STILL HAPPILY MARRIED. In fact, my husband and I are celebrating our eighth wedding anniversary next week, and what with being on Match for the past couple of weeks, Ive been extra nice to him because Ive become fully aware of what a struggle it is out there on the World Wide Web of dating and I dont want to go back. Ever. It all started when a friend decided to give Match a whirl and asked me to help her tweak her profile. Shes super busy with a job she loves, but it demands long hours plus, shes always keeping fit, has pets, lots of friends and a big family. So her dance card (except for a relationship) is full. Anyway, I helped this dear friend beef up her about me section, which is seriously like an essay. I mean, you want to sound fun, but not too fun (ahem), you want be specific about who youre looking for, but not overly specific (picky, picky, picky), and you want to write about what makes you fabulous, but you dont want to sound like the mostfabulous person ever (aka, inaccessible). Its a slippery slope, indeed. Then theres the age thing. While I dont advocate lying, sometimes a lady in her mid40s has to lose a year or four, because it seems that if you come up in Match searches as being on the over-45 grid, youre going to be winked at by a lot of 70-year old dudes while not even being seen by guys in your own age group (its complicated, but true). So, in the name of weeding out gents on Social Security, you might have to fudge a bit. After we got my friends profile up and running and she started getting dates, another good friend approached me about helping her with her profile. And why not? With Friend No. 1 running her winks/emails/potential dates by me, I was getting to be an old hand at this. So Friend No. 2, who is just as busy as Friend No. 1, gave me her password and let me have at it. What this all means is that now I am two very attractive, smart, successful, fun (but, not too fun) women in my early 40s navigating my way through Match. Basically, my girlfriends are both Uma Thurman and Im Janeane Garofalo in the 1990s chick flick The Truth About Cats and Dogs, which is based on the story of Cyrano de Bergerac. Actually, I let my friends do most of the talking; Im just a sort of Creeper Filter. For instance, when a guy sends a message like this (and this is word-for-word, by the way) Hello Beautiful Stranger, Your eyes are like warm puddles of Merlot that I know I would love 2 get lost in as I become bewitched by your precious smile and perfect physique I delete it. But when a fellow writes something witty, flattering and (most importantly) ends the message with a question, like this I loved the picture of you in Greece. I was there two years ago. Did you check out Santorini? What did you think? then I tell my friend to check him out. But a girl even if shes not the real girl has to be careful. Match has a generator that gives members a list of 12 potential dudes each day that they should take a gander at. I clicked on one well call him AnnoyingGuy57 and realized right away that he wasnt my friends type (also, he lives about two hours away), so I moved on. Immediately, an email comes in from AnnoyingGuy57: Hi Pretty Lady, You checked out my profile. We should go out. I ignore it. Five minutes later, another one: Hey! Its AnnoyingGuy57. YOU checked ME out. How about a date? Really? Three minutes later: Wow. Its going to be hard to have a RELATIONSHIP if you wont COMMUNICATE! And that was just the first three messages. There were seven more as got progressively more miffed before I blocked him from contact. So, yeah, be careful with your clicking on Match. I also weed out any man who posts a picture of himself sans shirt. Do you hear that, Match men? Put a shirt on. I I mean my friends dont care how well defined your abs are, I am sure there are naked dating sites where you would fit in much better. Finally, the best part about my dating life especially since Im blissfully married is that I dont have to put on makeup and choose an outfit and actually show up on the dates. I just get to hear about them afterward from the comfort of my sofa. So far, its a win-win. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

B7 More rooms could always be booked, and rates could always edge a little higher. Its never enough, said Mike Watkins, president of Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club. We always want more. Still, he adds, recent occupancy rates leave him feeling very optimistic about the coming fall and winter season. Southwest Florida hotels made more money per room than last year, reflecting fuller reservation books while the total number of available rooms stayed roughly even. Increased convention business as well as leisure travelers here in part due to the terrible weather that seemed to plague everywhere else contributed to demand, said David Gauthier, director of sales at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa, a 454-room resort in Bonita Springs. We had a much better first quarter, season, than we did the year prior, he said. In Lee County, the tourism bureau reported that there were 836,684 paid accommodations in the second quarter, a 13.9 percent increase from the same three months last year. Even better, revenue per available room (RevPAR) increased 14.9 percent to $95.8, a very favorable uptick, reads the report. Its an important gauge for hotels because it reflects a realistic value for each room, taking into account the room revenue as well as the total numberBe their guestRoom rates continue to climb along with reservation numbersBY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ oridaweekly.com COURTESY PHOTOThe Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa in Bonita Springs reports more bookings year-over-year.SEE GUEST, B3

Not so fast, says veteran sales manager, consultant and business speaker Jack Daly. Sure, your competition copy what they can, but there are two things they cant: your people and your culture, says Mr. Daly, the author of Hyper Sales Growth. Some companies Southwest Airlines, Zappos and the Virgin Group, for example are outpacing their competition because of their culture, he adds. The best way to ensure a driven team is to create a culture that fosters the results you want, he says. Mr. Daly offers these tips for growing a business culture that inspires loyalty, engagement and the high performance those qualities produce. Start new hires on a Friday and with a big welcome. Many managers think new employees should start on Monday, the day when their new coworkers are facing a long to-do list for the week. Consider starting them on Friday, when the office is a bit looser. And how about throwing the new hire a welcoming party? Many offices hold going away parties for departing employees, but it makes more sense to put this enthusiasm toward the person with whom youre making a commitment, rather than the person whos no longer working for you. Recognize accomplishments by putting it in writing handwriting. Typing emails and instant messaging is clearly much more convenient, which is why an employee who deserves special attention will recognize the extra effort behind a hand-written note. A letter has that personal touch; the receiver knows that the manager or CEO has taken some time and effort to create a special communication just for him or her. Provide lunch for free. One of my clients started with just 10 employees, and each day one would bring in lunch for everyone, Mr. Daly says. As the company grew to several hundred employees, the CEO found that free lunches were so beneficial, the company now hires a caterer to maintain the boost in culture it provides. While many might cringe at the expense, employee appreciation outweighs the cost, Mr. Dalys client says, and it keeps people engaged within the office, rather than having employees leave for lunch. Flatten the privilege structure. Its not a good idea to create anything resembling a class system, including special parking for upper management. I was the No.1 salesmen at one company, but I always preferred to park with the others, Mr. Daly says. Id come in at 5 a.m. and noticed that those with reserved parking arrived significantly later than those who parked in unreserved spots. Parking should be on a firstcome, first-serve basis. Upper management shouldnt feel too entitled or privileged above other employees. Jack Daly draws upon more than 20 years of business experience, with several successful stints as the CEO of fast-growing companies. Mr. Daly has a bachelors degree in accounting and an MBA and was a captain in U.S. Army. DALY

In Collier County in June, RevPAR increased 16.3 percent to $111.2 compared to June 2013. At the 319-room Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club, year-to-date occupancy is at about 65 percent with an average daily rate of around $250, said Mr. Watkins. Were very excited about that. Its up, he said. In Charlotte County, a RevPAR calculation wasnt immediately available; other tourism bureau figures indicate it was up. The occupancy rate climbed about 10 percent to 75.6 percent and the average daily rate from $91.27 to $105.77 in the first quarter of this year, the latest numbers available. The travelers origins change with the seasons, said Mr. Watkins. Over the summer, Floridians, Europeans and South Americans make up the bulk of his guests. And in the fall we get more of the European business and domestic (United States), some from the Northeast and Midwest, he said. In the winter (and spring) mostly from the Northeast and Midwest. The higher values continue a trend of growth with tourism bureaus posting record visitation numbers in recent years, since the recession ended. In Port Charlotte, Sue Carron, general manager of Sleep Inn & Suites said room rates are up over the past few years but not yet enough to balance out the post-recession lows lasting for her through 2009. Many guests are people coming to the area to look for homes nearby, she said, adding: A lot of people are falling in love with the Charlotte County area and finding out its that little hidden gem. The growing numbers of guests has not sparked hotel construction, with total numbers of rooms set to stay roughly even at least in the near future, Lee, Charlotte and Collier tourism bureaus said although the only thing thats very scary, Ms. Carron said, are new hotels that are set to open in neighboring Sarasota County, flooding the area with new rooms and competition. Growth to the northErin Duggan of Visit Sarasota County confirmed that at least three new hotels are permitted, including Aloft, The Westin and Embassy Suites, set to open between October 2015 and the winter of 2016. And three others, he added, Hotel Sarasota, Kimpton and Homewood Suites, have also indicated they are coming to town in roughly the same time period. The rising occupancy rates, if not Sarasotas string of openings, will also help Lee County absorb its own glut of hotel rooms built during or just after the recession, with builders following through on plans made before the economy downshifted. In 2009 alone, 12 new hotels opened, adding roughly 1,350 rooms, or about half-a-million room nights. In the second quarter this year in Lee, the occupancy rate grew by about 5 percent and the average daily room rate jumped 9.4 percent to $143.9. Summer bookings were also strong. They were up from last year in July, August and September reported 61 percent of Lee County property managers surveyed by the Visitor & Convention Bureau; only 37 percent said their bookings were up last year at the same time. Another quarter said their bookings were about the same as last year for these three months. About 10 percent said they were down. In Collier, about half of hotel managers surveyed said they had more reservations in July, August and September 2014 compared to 2013; only 28.6 percent said that last June.

B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 18-24, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYI trace my roots back to 1918, when a 22-year-old started renting out a dozen Model T Fords in Chicago. Today Im one of the worlds largest car-rental companies, with more than 10,000 locations in the U.S. and about 150 nations. I was bought by General Motors in 1926 and have been owned by RCA and Ford. In the 1950s, I expanded into Europe and was sold to another company, getting my current name. I own the Thrifty, Dollar and Firefly brands, and the vehicle leasing and fleet management leader Donlen Corp., too. Who am I? Know the answer?

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Investing Math, ExplainedMath can confuse us not only in high school, but even when were adults trying to see how our investments are doing. You dont need to be a calculus ace to be a good investor, but you should master some concepts, a few of which can be surprising. For example, imagine that youve lost money on a stock and you want to know when youll get back to even on your initial investment. You might assume that after a 50 percent drop in the stocks price, youd need a 50 percent gain to get back to even. Not true. Imagine that shares of Economical Aviaries (ticker: CHEEP) dropped by 50 percent, from $80 to $40. To get back to $80, the stock will need to double, gaining 100 percent. Another example: If it drops 75 percent, from $100 to $25, it will need to quadruple, gaining 300 percent, in order to get back to $100. Even a more modest 20 percent drop in value will require a 25 percent gain. (As the drop gets bigger, the required return for a recovery gets much bigger.) Meanwhile, if a $30 stock gains $30 in value, reaching $60, youre sitting on a two-bagger and a 100 percent gain. (Its perhaps counterintuitive, but a double is a 100 percent gain, not 200 percent.) Later on, if it gains $30 going from $300 to $330 (from a 0-bagger to an -bagger), that represents just a 10 percent gain. Read this paragraph a few times if you need to. These are unfamiliar concepts for many of us. Its good to understand how the math works, but with investing, what really counts is the future. A stock may have fallen 60 percent or risen 200 percent, but either way, you just need to know how likely it is to keep growing at a good clip. If youre pretty sure it has a rosy future, hang on. If not, sell and move the money into a more promising investment. Dont look back too much look forward. Averaging DownMy most recent flub was chasing the stock of beverage carbonation system maker SodaStream as it dropped. I temporarily lost any sense of a plan and bought more on the way down three times because I was sure it was a buying opportunity. I sold out for about an average 25 percentage loss, putting quite a damper on other recent gains. Still, it was a good, although painful, lesson for me. Karl, onlineThe Fool Responds: You were averaging down buying shares of a falling stock and delighting that youre gaining more shares at lower prices, thereby lowering your average cost basis. This strategy can pay off well, but it can also end badly. Remember that when stocks fall, they usually do so for a reason. Before buying any more shares in such a situation, you should do enough research to be very confident that any problems are fleeting ones and that the company seems likely to recover and prosper. Never hang on just to get your money back. You can always move the money left in the stock into a more promising one. Apple: Room to RunThe years of mega-growth are gone forever for Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL), but its still poised to reward long-term shareholders. For one thing, along with a new, stylish AppleWatch and a mobile payments system, the company recently announced its highly anticipated iPhone 6 (and 6 Plus), with bigger screens and more power than predecessors. With its various upcoming new products, as well as upgrades of products such as iPad tablets, many investors are expecting Apple to enter a new phase of growth and innovation.The iPhone 6 is likely to be the biggest growth driver by far, as about half of American iPhone users today are still using the 4 or 4S (and its 69 percent in China). Emerging markets such as China and India hold vast promise for Apple and are critical opportunities, but it has been facing tough competition outside U.S. borders, where its iOS operating system has been losing market share in recent years.Still, Apples stock price seems low enough to compensate for its risks with a solid margin of safety. It recently sported a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 17, which is rather low for a briskly growing company. Its dividend yield was recently 2 percent, and the company has been aggressively buying back shares, too, which boosts the value of remaining shares. (The Motley Fool owns shares of Apple and its newsletters have recommended it.) I trace my history back to 1892, when my founders invented a machine that made Shredded Wheat cereal. Three years later they debuted the Postum cereal drink, followed by Grape-Nuts cereal in 1897. Today, based in St. Louis, I specialize in name-brand cereals; natural and organic cereals and snacks; refrigerated egg, potato and cheese foods; and private-label foods such as pastas, peanu t butter s, dried fruits and more. I launched my Raisin Bran cereal in 1942, Alpha-Bits in 1958 and Fruity Pebbles in 1971. My history features mergers, acquisitions and spin-offs. You once knew me as General Foods. Who am I? (Answer: Post Holdings) When Cheap Isnt CheapQI see that RadioShack stock has surged lately. I know the company has been struggling, but should I buy shares now? Last I looked, its shares were still less than $2 apiece. P.D., Archer, FloridaAYoure under a common misconception, that a seemingly low price means a stock is cheap and a bargain. Its true that RadioShack has been going through some tough times, but a stock price jump doesnt mean its out of the woods yet (and stocks trading for less than $5 per share are typically extra-risky penny stocks).RadioShacks stock more than doubled in a single week recently, on news that the company might get some much-needed financing from a hedge fund. If that happens, its good news for the company, but that doesnt solve all of RadioShacks problems. Its carrying a lot of debt, for example, while burning more cash than it generates. Rumors are also not great reasons on which to base investment decisions. ***QWhat education and training are required for stockbrokers? K.W., Tecumseh, MichiganAA college education generally isnt required, but a bachelors degree is common among stockbrokers. They must pass the Series 7 licensing examination, though, and sometimes other exams, such as Series 63 and Series 65. Licensed brokers can advise you, solicit business from you and execute transactions on your behalf.Remember, though, that these exams dont measure a brokers skill at identifying great investments. Worse still, brokers dont have to abide by the fiduciary standard that applies to investment advisers, requiring that recommendations be in your best interest. Instead, they just have to offer suitable (and possibly highcost) investments. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has been looking into changing that. Got a question for the Fool?

B18 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 18-24, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYMcGarvey Custom Homes Sinatra model underway in Seneca at Talis Park BY KEVIN CAFFREYSpecial to Florida WeeklyMcGarvey Custom Homes has started construction of its Sinatra model in Seneca, a neighborhood that will showcase 43 luxury residences in Talis Park. Wrapped by the vistas of Talis Parks golf course, Senecas northand south-facing lakefront home sites feature water and double or triple fairway views. Priced from the high $400,000s to $700,000, each site is 190-200 feet deep, 77-100 feet wide and can accommodate residences from 3,200 square feet to 5,000 square feet. Custom home and lot packages in Seneca are priced from $1.6 million. The Caribbean-style Sinatra has 4,464 square feet in a great room design that includes a wet bar, study, four bedrooms, four full and two half-baths, a motor court and porte-cochere and an oversized one-car owners garage as well as a two-car garage. The master suite has a private garden off the bath and a sitting area in the bedroom that opens to the pool and spa. One of the guest bedrooms will serve as a VIP suite that opens to the outdoor living area and a courtyard. The interior of the Sinatra model will be by Susie Petril and Charlie Hansen of Clive Daniel Home. The fully furnished model will be offered at $2,395,000. The designers will establish a light and airy ambience with a color palette of warm, natural browns and creams with pops of indigo and maize yellow. The Sinatras elegance will begin in a double foyer showcasing wide plank wood flooring with mosaic marble insets. Beautiful artwork, framed mirrors and polished chrome chandeliers will create an immediate statement.The great room will have a contemporary fireplace artfully wrapped in the porcelain flooring material with a wood mantel and wall-mounted television above. On either side, built-in bookcases with backlit, floating glass shelves will add drama. An oversized wool area rug in tones of cream will anchor two white linen sofas with indigo accent pillows and two armchairs finished in a gray geometric pattern. The ceiling will feature four linear coffers with wood-wrapped detailing. Pocketing sliders will open up the entire rear wall to allow the seamless integration of the indoor and outdoor living areas. Just off the great room, a wet bar will feature a back wall of back-lit milk glass. The wooden base cabinetry will have a back-lit caramel crushed glass countertop. The great room will open to a gourmet kitchen with an inner island for food preparation and an outer island with four barstools. Final finishes for this space are in development. Adjacent to the kitchen, the formal dining room will have custom built-in cabinetry. The study at the front of the home will have wide-planked wood flooring and a square-pitched ceiling with a drywall beam detail. A natural wood finished desk will float on a sisal area rug and will be complemented by two bookcases and oversized armchairs in palomino leather. The Sinatras master suite will showcase a custom-designed soffit over the bed. The bed itself will incorporate four linen panels with a wood surround for the headboard. The nightstands will be built into the bed with the same finish. Iron light fixtures with natural linen shades will be suspended from the soffit over the nightstands. The sitting area will have two chaises in a natural linen fabric with a mustard geometric print. Between the master bedroom and bath, a hallway will accommodate walk-in closets and a morning bar with natural wood finishes and a white Calcutta marble top with striking grey veining. In the master bath, hisand-her vanities will be executed in a natural teak wood color palette while everything in the room will be wrapped in the Calcutta marble to create a restful, spa-like atmosphere. There will be separate water closets and a walk-through Calcutta shower with a teak bench. A private courtyard garden will enhance the sense of peace and tranquility. The Sinatras outdoor living space will feature a double-sided fireplace as the focal point for a comfortable conversation area. An outdoor kitchen with barstools and a dining area will lend themselves to casual, relaxed entertaining. This home is extremely fluid, Ms. Petril says. Everything just opens from room to room, and it will have a very clean, crisp look. Its a spacious home, Mr. Hansen adds, but with a comfort level that makes it feel intimate. The entrance to Talis Park is on Livingston Road just north of Immokalee Road in North Naples. Stop in the sales center at 16980 Livingston Road or visit talispark.com. Seneca residents will have access to Fionas Market Caf, the Core Fitness Center and the Esprit Spa in the Vyne House clubhouse. Casa Cortese Grille in Talis Park offers an outdoor dining option. Residents of Seneca will be within a short walk or bike ride of Talis Parks Grand Piazza, the home of the Vyne House clubhouse and the Great Lawn. Homes in Seneca will enjoy water and fairway views. McGarvey Custom Homes has started construction of the Sinatra in the Seneca neighborhood at Talis Park. With interior by Clive Daniel Home, the furnished model will be offered at $2,395,000.

WESTERN EXPOSURE Uncomplicated and practical: Connecticut farm offers glimpse into celebrity actresss personality TOPTENREALESTATEDEALS.COMCurrently filming The Whole Truth, to be released next year, Academy Award-winning actress Renee Zellweger is one of those celebrities we really only hear about during publicity for a new film. We get a glimpse into her off-screen personality, however, by seeing her 1770s Connecticut farm thats on the market. Certainly not the taste of her Bridget Jones character, the 390-acre Cotton Tavern farm is uncomplicated and practical in a pastoral setting. In about 3,400 square feet, the Colonial-style residence has three bedrooms, seven fireplaces, a wood-paneled library, swimming pool, country kitchen, guest home, 2,000-square-foot barn, post-and-rail fence, stone walls and lush gardens with views of the Quinebaug River. Over the eight years that Ms. Zellweger has owned it, she has restored and renovated the property into a modern showpiece while preserving much of the original. Its offered at $1,600,000.

Pants fall, doubleentendres fly and the improbable ensues in the farce that follows the onstage and offstage antics of a dysfunctional troupe of actors as they stumble through their final dress rehearsal and all the way to the tumultuous closing night of their low-budget production of Nothing On. Dallas Dunnagan directs the cast that includes Robert Armstrong as Frederick/Philip, Richard Blaney as Tim, Rebecca Bronzini as Poppy, Jim Corsica as Selsdon/Burglar, James Duggan as Garry/Roger, Kristin Cassidy as Belinda/Flavia, Bonnie Knapp as Dotty/Mrs. Clackett, Ricci Prioletti as Brooke/Vicki and Larry Utterback as Lloyd. Puns, jokes and verbal spars and carefully choreographed chaos fill all three acts of the play by Michael Frayn, which some critics have deemed one of the funniest shows ever written about theater. Starting Sept. 24 and running through Oct. 18, Noises Off will be presented at 8 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $35 for adults and $10 for students 21 and younger. Call the box office at 263-7990 or visit naplesplayers.org. A GOOD STORY IS A GOOD STORY, declares Lori Lowery, adult reference librarian at Esteros South County Regional Library. So if that good story happens to be between the covers of a Young Adult novel, older adults will read it just as avidly. In recent years, Ms. Lowery says, she has seen more and more adults reading YA books, identified by the publishing industry as books aimed at those aged 12 to 17. Sometimes (adult patrons) dont even know theyre asking for a Young Adult book until you tell them where to find it on the shelves, she says. But when they find out, no one says, Im not going to read a Young Adult novel. And thats good, she says.Naples Players open season with carefully choreographed chaosSPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLY_________________________ BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.com Not just foryoungadultsOlder readers enjoy genre targeted at teensSEE YOUNG ADULT, C4 What was that?Film critic Dan Hudak says Tusk left him totally perplexed.

Before AfterPhotos courtesy of Grant Stevens, MD SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS France at 24 vs. France at 34 The last time I lived in France and I mean really lived here, with an apartment and everything was a decade ago. And let me tell you: France at 34 is nothing like France at 24. For one thing, Ive lost that look of wide-eyed innocence that propelled me through the streets of Paris in my early 20s. Men were always stopping me and laying it on thick not because I was beautiful (my God, I wasnt even plucking my eyebr ows then) or because I was stylish (I had an unfortunate fondness for turtlenecks), but because I looked malleable. My face said I was the kind of girl who would swallow any line you fed her. Of course, looks can be deceiving. My expression has changed over the last 10 years. Its hardened, and now it better reflects the skepticism Ive always carried. Theres a wariness to me these days, a set to the mouth and eyes that warns off purveyors of bull. I like to think it suits me. But it must not suit the men of France. Because they have disappeared, those one-time lechers. Or, I should say, they have disappeared for me. Certainly, theyre still out there; theyre just tossing it at younger, softer women. On a recent stay in the southern city of Carcassonne, I found this lack of attention perplexing. Where were all the sleazy French men with their ridiculous come-ons, the ones I both despised and enjoyed? The only people who stopped me on the street wanted directions. After a time, however, once the initial disappointment had worn o ff, I realized that another feeling had surfaced: relief. I discovered how nice it was to explore the medieval city without having to dodge inappropriate advances. What a joy, I saw, to be free of the weight of someone elses desire. Just as I was settling into this new, more mature life role, a man stepped out of a corner store along the citys main drag and fell into step beside me. Bonjour, he said. I started to respond, but then I remembered my months of training in Paris all those years ago, where I taught myself to stop smiling at every stranger on the street. Instead, I looked straight ahead and kept walking, making a concentrated effort not to acknowledge the man beside me. You know, he said. He held a lit cigarette between his thumb and forefinger as he talked. Youre really not bad. But you need to get laid. Despite myself, I turned to stare at him, a combination of shock and disbelief all over my face. The man nodded and took a puff on his cigarette. Its true. Anyone can see it. I assumed that he would make a pass then, that this would be the moment when hed say something lecherous and Id glower, and hed ask for my number and Id shake my head. But he didnt. He just threw his cigarette butt in the street, turned up the collar on his coat and walked off, leaving me standing there with my mouth open, wondering whoever thought aging would be grand.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 18-24, 2014 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYPamela Moore has been buying YA books for years in her capacity as youth services librarian at Collier County Headquarters Library. Ive never seen as many adults turn to a teen book before the Twilight series, she says, referring to the vampire romance books by Stephenie Meyer. The next big one was the Hunger Games series. A September 2012 article in Publishers Weekly reported that 55 percent of those buying YA books are adults, with the largest segment aged 30 to 44, and that 78 percent of the time, they are buying books for their own reading. Its not at all unusual to see adults buying YA books, says Cathy Graham, co-owner of Coppersmith Books in Punta Gorda. Whats interesting, she says, is that were seeing popular authors like John Grisham, Joyce Carol Oates and Carl Hiaasen writing Young Adult novels. The market has strength in there, and the industry is noticing that, and so are the writers. Some of these bigger name authors are branching out. Ms. Lowery points out that many YA novels have been turned into movies; some adults see the movies and then want to read the books. Recent YA books turned into movies include the Hunger Games trilogy, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, The Book Thief, If I Stay, The Giver and John Greens The Fault in Our Stars. And more are to come. Eleanor Rowells YA novel, Eleanor and Park, for example, is in its 28th printing and enjoying its 39th week on the New York Times Best Seller List; DreamWorks recently bought the movie rights. Liz Tietsworth, 48, of Punta Gorda, enjoys reading books that her teenage sons, age 17 and 14, recommend. When they were growing up, I think I had a huge influence on what they were reading, and now the converse is true, she says. The Hunger Games was a stand-out series for me, Ms. Tietsworth adds. I really love the moral dilemmas that people faced. It was such a unique piece of literature, the way it stirred me. Now 33, Andrienn Bonnyai of Naples read YA novels in her youth and never stopped. Youre just kind of drawn back in, she says about the genre. You almost want to nurture the characters through the story. If you can relate to the characters, it doesnt really matter what age you are. If you find material that you can relate to, youre going to enjoy the story even if its geared toward younger people. As you get older, Ms. Bonnyai says, you forget your first crush, how you felt. But a YA novel can bring that feeling back. Its interesting to see the characters involved in experiences that are new to them, because it brings you back to how you felt during those periods as well. In your head, you want to tell the character how to deal with (their problems.) You get mentally and emotionally involved in the story. Ms. Moore, the librarian in Collier County, says many patrons tell her they enjoy YA books because they are so well written. And I have to agree, she says. Sometimes the voice is very strong its how they take story lines and combine them. Shes recently ordered Dorothy Must Die for her YA stacks, calling it one of those books I couldnt put down. Based on The Wizard of Oz, its the first in a series. Its just so well done. How did this person start here and end up there? Ms. Moore also highly recommends Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. Its probably one of the best-constructed novels I have read in a long, long time, she says. Its worth a second or third read. The first time youre reading for story, the second time you see the artistry of construction, the imagery used in it. Adults identify with it right away. Who hasnt been in a hard situation where theyre the wronged party and they cant say why? Though shes an adult reference librarian, Ms. Lowery held an adult group discussion about the aforementioned The Fault in Our Stars last fall. She admits she was initially nervous about her choice, but the group enjoyed the story about two teenagers who meet at Cancer Kid Support Group. It was a good discussion. Its well written anything John Green writes is good. The Fault in Our Stars was so well received that Ms. Lowery has chosen another YA novel for an adult group discussion in November. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein is about a pilot and her friend who are shot down over France during WWII. One is captured by the Nazis, who tell her theyll let her live if she tells them everything she knows about airfields and codes. Its a well-written story, she says. Good literature is good literature. YOUNG ADULTFrom page 1Five or six years ago, Gulf Middle School language arts teacher Jamie Ayres wrote a bucket list of things she wanted to do before she died. First on her list: Write a novel and get it published. I didnt really know I was writing a Young Adult book when I started out, says the Cape Coral resident. I just wrote the story that came to me. Im a 13-year-old fan girl on the inside. Im 35, but 13 forever on the inside. She doesnt have an agent, so she submitted her manuscript to three major publishing houses herself. While waiting to hear back, she entered a publishers contest she learned about on a friends blog. You had to post a 10-line description of your book and the first page of your novel, she says. I thought Id get valuable feedback, but the next day, (the publisher) asked for the whole manuscript right away. A few days later, she offered me a contract. Ms. Ayres signed with Curiosity Quills Press, a small Virginia publishing company. Her paranormal novel, 8 Things, turned out to be the first book of a trilogy. Paranormal and fantasy Young Adult books were exploding on the market, and thats what editors and publishers and agents were looking for, she says. 8 Things is about an 18-year-old girl named Olga who loses her best friend through a tragedy. While shes depressed, her parents force her into therapy; her therapist tells her to make a list of 18 things to do during her 18th year, Ms. Ayres says. The end reveals a terrifying secret. The second book in the series, 8 Truths, has Olga venturing into the Underworld to try to find Conner, her best friend and love interest. The books reflect Ms. Ayres strong Christian beliefs. For example, Limbo is described as a place for souls who need to go though the after-death purification process, for those who accepted God into their lives and were sealed for the day of redemption, but then died while backsliding, or falling into sin, and therefore, they could not ask for Gods forgiveness and receive his grace. There are also prayers, such as one that starts, Heavenly Father, I surrender myself completely to you. I take a stand against all the workings of Satan. Its definitely part of who I am, she says. For me, it felt organic to the storyline. Olga lost the most important person in her life. If that happens to you, even if you dont think you believe in God, those people find themselves calling out to God The main theme of the book is: God is good and he will do anything for you.

Our life is an unending game of Beat the Clock, getting the requested stories or reviews or columns to our editors on time. Sometimes, there just isnt the luxury of time to finesse your sentences or polish your prose as much as you want. Actors know about deadlines, too. They rehearse and rehearse, but when opening night comes, they must walk onto that stage and perform, no matter how much they might feel the need for another weeks rehearsal. People doing improv have the least amount of time. They have to respond instantly to what their fellow actors or sometimes the audience throws at them. I suspect its like doing stand up in an earthquake, as the ground is constantly shifting. I once followed a group of theater people in New York City creating The A Train Plays. A group of playwrights would randomly pick a number. Then they would get to randomly pick that number of names out of a hat the specific actors theyd have to incorporate in their one-act play. Then theyd ride the A train from one end of the line to the other, while writing their play. At the end of the line, theyd each be randomly assigned a composer and lyricist. And theyd hop back on the train and ride it all the way back, writing and composing two songs. Then theyd meet their actors, and they all had 24 hours in which to rehearse and stage their play, which was performed for the public. All the action took place on the subway, or in a subway station. It was kamikaze theater. Talk about working under pressure. This past weekend, a group of Florida Gulf Coast University students studying the arts learned all about deadlines firsthand through participating in the schools eighth annual 24-Hour Festival, an event in which theyre given just one day in which to create a seven-minute film, play, song or composition. Visual artists were also given the same time in which to create a painting, sculpture or mixed media piece. Not only that, but the students had to include a number of elements in their work: The theme of dread/love; the sentence, Im waiting; a plot fragment of, We dont know what it is, but something is coming and it will be bad. They also had to incorporate these random things: a flood, a ball of lightning, dried sticks, so many frogs, a place of rest, a hammer and an extended tertian chord (a musical term.) They were given the required elements at 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 12, and had to return with the finished product at 6 p.m. the following night. The event was held in the FGCU Arts Complex, with the artwork on display in the lobby and the other works performed publically in the black box theater. The event was so well attended that people sat on the stairs of the theater and clogged the door. Some even stood out in the lobby. The music was performed first, then live performance, then moving image. Winners, chosen by a panel of local judges who work in the arts, received a $500 scholarship. It was a freewheeling evening, sometimes exciting, sometimes a little boring. The quality of the work varied greatly. And it started me thinking what such an event has to teach those of us in the arts. Sometimes, its best to just jump in. When you have only 24 hours in which to create a piece of work, you dont have the luxury of a lot of time for contemplation. You do have to think and brainstorm, of course, but once youve decided the direction youre going in, you just have to get started. Sometimes, obstacles can help you be more creative. Creative obstacles give us something to push against. They also give us borders or guidelines. If we can write about anything, then were just floating in a sea of endless possibilities. Moving quickly helps loosen you up. Doing things quickly can help free you. When I was an undergraduate student in New York City, I took some classes at Parsons School of Design, which was a part of my college. In a life drawing class, the models would strike a pose and then move into another pose maybe 15 or 30 seconds later. We didnt have time to belabor each line we drew. We had to sketch quickly, and get the essence of the person down on paper with just a few well-placed lines. You need to know your mediums equipment. More than one short film presented at the festival had scenes that were shot at night. Perhaps the students were trying for a noir effect. Unfortunately, many of them were just muddy, to the point where it was difficult to even see what was happening. You have to know what your equipment be it camera, cello, paint or laptop can do and how you can obtain the desired effects youre going for. You need to master it. And then you can use it as a tool to create the effect you want. Pay attention to plot and pacing. If youre telling a story, you need a beginning, middle and end. That sounds basic, but I have to confess that with some of the short films I saw the other night, there were moments when I had no clue what was going on. Sometimes, there didnt seem to be any logic to what was happening on screen. It was almost as if they just turned the camera on and told people to do whatever they wanted. You need to read/watch/absorb widely. You cant be a writer and not love to read. If you want to write, read. Read widely. Read everything. Read critically. And if you want to make films, you need to know a wide variety of films, not just whats playing in the theaters now. Your life shouldnt be a steady diet of Adam Sandler movies. You should be familiar with the classics, with art films, with foreign films. Just because something was created before you were born doesnt mean you shouldnt learn as much as you can about it. Experience quality. I thought some of the best work of this years 24-Hour Festival was done by composers. Kenneth A. Carter II, who won Outstanding Achievement in Music, composed Nightmare (For Saxophone Quartet), which also included a percussionist who used drum sticks (the required element of dried sticks) and a gavel (fulfilling the required element of a hammer.) His work made me think of The Lounge Lizards. The work in this category was consistently excellent. Some of the compositions were so compelling I wished I had them on CD so I could listen to them again. I started wondering why the works in this particular category were of such a high quality, and I suspect it might be because students studying music are constantly exposed to quality music. When you surround yourself with quality, it seeps into you. It seeps into your own art. You also develop a critical eye and ear and grow more discerning not only about others art, but your own. The more quality you absorb, the greater your own capacity for creating quality work. w t i h a s nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com

Recheck your accounts and make sure theyre up-to-date. Also, pay more attention to personal issues before they become major problems. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You might be tempted to employ the same tactics as your adversary, but that could backfire. Better to use the same balanced approach that has worked for you before and could again. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A changing workplace environment could stir up confusion as well as apprehension. Best to ignore the rumors and get the facts. You could find that the changes bring positive elements. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Communication is easier this week with people ready and eager to hear what you have to say. Also, check for possible technical problems before you start your new project. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Aspects favor change for the usually traditional Goat. Opening your mind to possibilities you had ignored could lead you to make decisions you once considered improbable. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Making personal as well as professional adjustments to changing conditions might be easier with more information explaining the hows and whys of the situations in question. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) With a growing tide of positive reactions to buoy your confidence, this could be the right time to put the finishing touches to your new project and get it well and truly launched. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Travel plans could be interrupted by the re-emergence of a workplace problem that was never quite fully resolved. Deal with it at once, and then take off on that well-deserved trip. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Aspects favor cultural activities for sensuous Bovines. Attend a concert or an art show. Better yet, create something yourself (a poem, perhaps?), and dedicate it to someone special. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Respect any doubts you might now be feeling about a new situation. They could be reflecting your inner awareness that some essential information might be missing. Check it out. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Its important to start the new month with as clean a slate as possible. Either complete all those unfinished tasks or pass them on to others who would be more than happy to take them on. LEO (July 23 to August 22) This is a good time to cut down on expenses and tame that urge to splurge. Applying some financial discipline now could help the Big Cat ride out a possible monetary crunch later on. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for setting an example of quiet, calm reasoning in the midst of chaotic conditions.

I dont knowTusk is the most bizarre movie I have ever seen. Thats not hyperbole. Its the honest truth. Its not quite torture porn, but it goes there. Its not entirely a dark comedy, but it has funny moments. Its not entirely a thriller, though the atmosphere suggests it is. Its all of these things and none of them. Not knowing what to make of the film is, I believe, entirely the point. Writer/director Kevin Smiths career has run the gamut of hits (Clerks) and misses (Cop Out), and hes spoken publicly about his disdain for the movie business. It makes sense that hed create and self-distribute a film that subverts film-industry conventionality, which states that movies are genre-classified and promoted in standardized (and therefore proven successful) ways. Using social media and core followers as his base, Mr. Smith is returning to his indie filmmaker roots, for better or worse. Tusk has a typical horror premise: Los Angeles-based podcaster Wallace Bryton (Justin Long) travels to Winnipeg to interview a loser who cut off his own leg while pretending he was in Kill Bill. When that doesnt work out, Wallace sees an ad for a man wishing to tell of his great adventures. Needing a story, and regardless of the fact that its a two-hour drive into the country to meet a complete stranger, he goes to meet Howard Howe (Michael Parks). Once there, hes taken captive. Ill reveal no more about his captivity except to say Wallaces captor has an unhealthy obsession with walruses. Up to this point, youre able to take the film seriously, but once Wallace and Howard sit at a dining-room table and howl (not together, but at the same time), you know youve entered the theater of the absurd. Still, serious things happen after that to offset the dark silliness. Wallaces girlfriend (Genesis Rodriguez) and podcast partner (Haley Joel Osment yes, the kid from The Sixth Sense, now pudgy) set out to find Wallace, enlisting the help of a local inspector (an unrecognizable Johnny Depp). Mr. Smiths script and direction are also sharp enough to utilize flashbacks to the days prior to Wallaces trip, all of which nicely accentuates the action in the present. If youre averse to torture porn, I dont blame you. So am I. Trust me, its not a factor here. Although there is torture and its often unsettling, nothing graphic is shown. Plus, you very well might be laughing when the scenes are over. As I write this about an hour after the film ended I still have no idea what to make of it. Because I cannot render a qualitative good/bad analysis, protocol dictates (per Roger Ebert) that I write about how the movie made me feel. One word keeps coming to mind: Unnerved. I squirmed in my seat. I laughed uncomfortably. I listened attentively as others laughed and groaned at the same scene, sometimes simultaneously. Because I cant stop thinking about it, and because theres so much to dissect, I have to recommend it. Good luck trying to forget, even if you want to. dan HUDAKwww.hudakonhollywood.com >> The idea for Tusk was born during a Kevin Smith Smodcast called The Walrus and The Carpenter.

CALL US TODAY FOR HUGE SAVINGS!SHOP EARLY FOR BEST SELECTION FILM CAPSULESDolphin Tale 2 (Harry Connick Jr., Nathan Gamble, Ashley Judd) With dolphin Winter not feeling well, teenage Sawyer (Mr. Gamble) struggles with a big life decision as he tries to find Winter a partner. Drama-wise it trips over itself multiple times, which is not good when its already painfully predictable. Rated PG.The Identical (Blake Rayne, Ashley Judd, Ray Liotta) Identical twins are separated at birth; one (Mr. Rayne) becomes an Elvis-like big time star, while the other (Mr. Rayne again) struggles to escape his fathers (Mr. Liotta) pressure to join the ministry. The premise is clever, but Mr. Rayne isnt quite ready for the big time, the singing sounds like an Elvis rip-off and the story has no surprises. Rated PG. Guardians Of The Galaxy (Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista) Unlikely heroes Star-Lord (Mr. Pratt), Gamora (Ms. Saldana), Drax (Mr. Bautista), Groot (voice of Vin Diesel) and Rocket Raccoon (voice of Bradley Cooper) try to stop the villainous Ronan (Lee Pace) from possessing a powerful orb. Its actionpacked, hilarious and an out-of-this-world good time. It also fits nicely within the Avengers-driven Marvel Cinematic Universe. Rated PG-13. The November Man (Pierce Brosnan, Olga Kurylendo, Luke Bracey) An ex-CIA operative (Mr. Brosnan) returns to action when his old flame uncovers dirt on the Russian president-elect. It has all the pieces of a solid espionage thriller, but they dont come together in an entertaining way. Rated R.Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (Megan Fox, Will Arnett, William Fichtner) Reporter April (Ms. Fox) teams with four mutated, talking ninja turtles to stop a crime syndicate. This is an entertaining, full origin story with laughs and solid action. Rated PG-13.Sin City: A Dame To Kill For (Jessica Alba, Eva Green, Josh Brolin) Four vignettes comprise the action in writer/directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Millers sequel to the 2005 sensation Sin City. None of the four stories titillate, and the film only looks good not great in 3D. Rated R.The Hundred-Foot Journey 1/2(Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal) The fussy proprietor of a Michelin-starred French restaurant (Ms. Mirren) doesnt take kindly to her new neighbors/competition, a spunky Indian family whose restaurant is right across the street. Like the food on screen, the movie looks fine and is perfectly edible, but its nothing special. Rated PG.

Poisoned Pen Press. 250 pages. Hardcover, $24.95 (available in other editions). There is good news for Florida mystery readers. Susan Slater has moved to Palm Coast from New Mexico and has brought along her highly praised talent. Rollover is Ms. Slaters second novel featuring insurance investigator Dan Mahoney. A belated sequel to Flash Flood (2002), its set in the small town of Wagon Mound, N.M., where Dan, a seasoned pro in his early 50s, is sent to investigate the loss of a valuable necklace, most likely taken during a bank robbery. Shortly before he gets there, however, his car overheats and a friendly stranger gives him a ride. Then a rollover accident (if it was an accident) kills the driver, and Dan ends up in the hospital. Coincidence? Or a not-so-subtle signal that he should stay away from Wagon Mound? Once on the case, Dan is caught up in a criminal investigation that involves federal agents as well as local law enforcement. Something just doesnt add up: Heres a bank that has $2 million in deposits in the vault left untouched. The thieves had laboriously built a tunnel into the bank that accesses the safe deposit box area. Why all this trouble for a necklace when easy cash is on hand? What else of value was in the other boxes? Why were three boxes, located together, left untouched? As the case develops, Dan discovers a web of secrets and lies regarding relationships among several of the townspeople. For one thing, the bank itself is under investigation. The head of the bank is not too popular, having made many changes in his short period of authority that his staff didnt like and that upset the townspeople. There seemed to be something going on between him and Penelope Kennedy, the daughter of elderly Gertrude, whose bracelet is sometimes missing, sometimes not, and is eventually found to have had its major gemstones secretly replaced with fakes. Is the bank managers death a suicide or a murder? In either case, whats the motive? Is it guilt and fear of being found out, or did he just know too much to be left alive? Something suspicious lingers in Penelopes answers about her association with the bank and with a nearby i f e a i T philJASONpkjason@comcast.net SLATER

She works at this project, which is developing new kinds of grass and other plants, much more often than she admits. Also, why do men in hazmat suits make clandestine deliveries of fertilizer to the facility? Or is it fertilizer? How is it that Elaine Linden, Dans girlfriend, is chased down, captured and locked up in a building thats part of the research facility? Why is a young woman who had a part-time job at the bank found dead in Elaines car, and both the car and the woman destroyed by fire? Just as Dan, in concert with Sheriff Howard, frets that too many pieces of information are flying around without connection or coherence, clues emerge that help them fit those pieces together. When Dan receives a mysterious, unsigned message Its not what you think he tries to see things afresh. Perhaps the tunnel wasnt built to allow for the theft of valuables. Perhaps the goal was to bring things into the bank without detection. But what? And why? The twists and turns of the investigation provide many surprises and lead to an unexpected yet thoroughly satisfying conclusion. Aside from the main plot, Ms. Slater hooks us with the developing romance between Dan and Elaine, on the way to becoming an early middle-age couple with a lot of good years ahead of them. Elaine, a highly educated woman, proves to be a good amateur partner. She suggests that their future might involve a partnership in the detective business. Lets hope thats the direction they are headed for in the next installment of what could become a long-lived mystery series. That direction will also involve a relocation from New Mexico to Florida. Indeed, the author now a threeyear Floridian has revealed to yours truly that shes ready to move the Dan Mahoney Mystery series to a Florida setting. Judging from Susan Slaters compelling, authoritative handling of her small-town New Mexico setting in Rollover, Im sure she will be up to the task.

I rest my head against the window, take a deep breath and wait. My sister is sleeping next to me. She is prettier than me. She has light blue eyes and is much taller than I am. Her name is Dixie. My eyes are brown. The car idles smoothly. We are parked outside an old, abandoned fast food restaurant. Empty cups and trash ride on a breeze across the desolate parking lot. For a minute, I imagine the restaurant is open. Crowds of people are giddy with anticipation, waiting to be served juicy burgers and plump hot dogs. Children run from the pick up window clutching triple dipped ice cream cones and frosty milkshakes. My throat is dry. I wish I had a milkshake. Dixie stirs next to me. She stretches the kinks out of her long legs. Her eyes blink open as she licks her lips, thick with sleep. The door to the restaurant opens. Russell and another man dressed in a gray shirt walk toward the car. Dixie sits up straight and tries not to act excited. Russell opens the door and tells us to get out. We do as we are told. The pavement is scorching hot. It burns my feet. This one, we call Ella, Russell says with his hand on my shoulder. The tall one with the blue eyes, thats Dixie. Can they fight? asks the gray shirt man, spitting a wad of tobacco to the ground. I reckon anything will fight if they mad enough, says Russell, patting me on the back. They pure? gray shirt man asks. Yes sir, answers Russell. Pure pit bull... strong line. Russell accepts an envelope from gray shirt man. He removes our collars, Dixie starts to whine. Gray shirt man opens the rear door to his car and points. I jump into the backseat, followed by Dixie. The door slams behind us. My ears pop. Dixie stretches her legs and settles in for a long ride, she lets out a deep breath. Gray shirt man starts the engine and we pull away. The image of Russell counting cash in front of the old, abandoned restaurant grows smaller and smaller behind us. I rest my head against the window. The reflection is the same. There will be no milkshake for me.

Certain restrictions apply. The Spark By Nancy Reges MurvineMarco Island The auction took less than a half an hour. But three hours later, I was on my fourth and nal pickup of treasures. My truck could only hold one picnic table at a time and I had to have all four. The old roadside diner, really more like a kitchen and some outside tables, was being demod, like all the other little businesses along the service road that now formed a miniature ghost town. Harolds barbecue, was the last holdout. This auction, its last hurrah. The highway on-ramp to the by-pass shouldered against the old building like the town bully. The rusting metal roof looked like a big st had smashed it at. Some signs still hung in the window announcing breakfasts for $2.99 and grilled cheese for $1.99, but everyone who grew up around here knew it was the southern, vinegary barbecue that made Harolds famous. The neon sign that ashed in rotating sections Bar B Que was the rst thing sold. I didnt recognize the bidder and could only hope that the tables did not hold as much sentiment for her as they did for me. My luck held and now I was taking the last table to its new residence. Every summer on our way out of town, our car loaded with a weeks worth of beach paraphernalia, Dad would stop to pick up two quart containers of pulled pork with a little extra sauce on the side, please. You never know if this might be the last time we stop here, hed say, and my mother would goodnaturedly slap him on the shoulder for being such a doomsayer. On the way home a week later, he would exclaim, By golly, goodness, shes still here, and wed pull in to grab another order of pork to celebrate our good fortune. His could be the last time for the old girl would be followed by another loving smack from my mother. The routine never varied and it never grew old. Today, though, my fathers playful prophecy became a somber truth. I had taken the rst of my picnic tables home for my twin girls. Wont that thing tip over as soon as one person sits down? My wifes alarm seemed reasonable given the construction. Seats and table top were integrated with bolts and welds onto a single curved frame. Not if the girls sit down at the same time opposite each other, see-saw style. I had not assuaged her fear. Just kidding. My dad used to say that to us. Roger, wait for your sister and on the count of three, sit down together. I was 10 before I realized it was his way of keeping us siblings from ghting and had nothing to do with the tables. Theyre as steady as a rock. As proof, I plunked onto the faded, nearly pink seat. My twins happily took their places opposite me when the table remained in its fully upright position. By the time I said goodbye, heading back to retrieve the second table, the girls were kneeling on opposite benches, each sharing a bowl of water for their paintbrushes and swiping streaks of rainbow across white paper. The next generation painting the next memories. The second table went to my sister Linda. I laughed when she begged me to bid on one for her, using the same whine she used when she was my 6-year-old little sister and we pleaded our cases for who should get the seat in the shade and whose bottom would sting against the red metal seat soaking up sun-scorching heat. Like all the other rituals involving Harolds, this one, too, never varied when we stopped after swim practice for an ice cream cone. We each remained entrenched in our argument I was privileged by being the oldest; she was deserving by being the youngest despite the fact that someone always threw a towel or a Tshirt as a cover onto the bench before anyone sat down. Only tourists, people passing through really, ever stood up with red marks branded onto the esh below their short lines. Like my table, this went into her backyard on their new, paver patio. Her husband had plans to drill a hole for a market umbrella, and she was going to repaint the whole thing in the latest designer colors. I accused her of destroying a perfectly good piece of vintage furniture. She called me a stick in the mud. This argument, like so many others we have had over the years, was moot. The last two tables were going to Whispering Pines, the nursing home a few miles up the road. My sister and I agreed that Dad, a memory patient there, deserved a little piece of our shared past although neither of us believed it would spark any real memories. He had slowly lost track of his own children, sometimes calling one of my daughters by his own daughters name. Other times he looked at me or my sister with a skeptics scowl that shamed us into no longer asking if he knew who we were. In truth, this slipping away took a toll on us more than our father, and these little tables were the only things we imagined that could still connect the three of us in some small way. I had delivered the rst and set it up under the tall loblolly pines in the back where paths, wide enough to allow for two passing wheelchairs, meandered to nowhere in particular. The place cried out for respite from the mundane routine of its days. Two men waited patiently while I wiggled the table snug against the trunk of a tree with a canopy large enough to keep most of the table in its shade. They thanked me as they spread out a chess set, the two immovable, opposing seats the requisite for such a battle. When I returned with the second one, the chess players had moved on. My father was waiting at the nurses station, docile as always. The nurse pulled me aside. Mr. Newport, I have to warn you that your father is having a dif cult day. I had not known my father to ever have a dif cult day. What do you mean dif cult? To be honest, he is being dif cult, the nurse whispered almost apologetically, but her emphasis on the word being shocked me even more. Since you brought the table, he has been agitated or, more precisely, the agitator. Behind us he moved to the locked French doors. He could see the world outside but not be a part of it unless someone took him there. He rapped on the window, not an angry rap but an attention-getting knock. Hey, Roger, on a count of three, not before. You dont want it to tip over. Two women who had set their iced teas on the table, looked up. One, two, three. The women picked up their glasses and moved away. See what I mean? I nodded. And he keeps demanding that people put something on the seats. He took off his shirt and tried to offer it to one of the nurses to take out there. I couldnt help myself. My chuckle became a belly laugh. I am sure the nurse thought I was losing my mind, but I assured her that my father was regaining a little slice of his. I was excited to share this story with my sister, so excited that while I was bent down to retrieve her number from my phones contact list, I nearly knocked over two men moving a ladder away from the entrance to the communal dining room. I heard one of them say, It would be cool if this thing lights up and the other respond, Flip the switch; these old girls never go bad. In rhythmic succession, the spark of words lit up: Bar B Que.

The fireplace was the main heating source for small houses before 1900, so a bellows to coax a flame from a dying fire was important. Early bellows probably were a bag made from the skin of a small animal and a piece of metal, usually brass, to direct the gust of air created by squeezing the bellows. Later examples had stiff wooden boards and leather sides. Nails rust, and leather and wood dry out, crack and have to be replaced, so most of the antique bellows found today are repaired or made in the 19th century. Many were hand-decorated, and some even had wooden sides carved by cabinet makers. Many antique bellows have attractive folk art decorations and are wanted for the art, not for use with a fireplace. Most new and many old bellows sell for under $100, but in April 2014, an unusual 1800s bellows with original leather painted to look like a mans face had a bid of $2,700 at a Showtime auction. Q: I inherited a framed painting that hung in my grandfathers living room since at least the 1920s. Its a painting of a gondola with a few passengers and a standing gondolier. But theyre not riding on a canal; instead, theyre floating down what appears to be an underground cave. The painting is signed M. Gianni in the lower left corner. A: Here are a few things to do to learn more about your painting: First, make sure it really is a painting and not a print. If you cant tell, take it to an expert in your area. Then check online artist databases. You can find some information online, but you can learn more if you go to your local library and ask someone there to help you search databases that the library subscribes to. M. Gianni may be an Italian artist named Maria Gianni, who was born in the 19th century but worked into the 20th. She painted using watercolors and gouache. If you have an original painting, its value depends on its condition and size. Some Maria Gianni paintings have auctioned for prices in the low hundreds, but others have topped $1,000. Q: I have a 6-foot-tall cardboard cutout of Elvis Presley wearing his black leather outfit. Ive had it for 20 years. What is it worth? A: Life-size cardboard cutouts of Elvis still are being made and sell for about $20$30 today. Q: I bought some green frosted pressedglass dishes at an estate sale. They are clear glass on the inside and frosted greenblue on the outside. The frosting looks green from the front and bluish from the back. The plates have KIG Indonesia in raised letters on the surface on the outer edge. Can you tell me anything about them? Are they safe to eat from? A: Most frosted glass dishes are safe to use. Frosted glass is made by acidetching or sandblasting clear glass. Since the inside of your dishes are clear and are the surface the food touches, you can be sure they are OK. KIG stands for Kedaung Industrial Group, which was founded in Jakarta, Indonesia, by Agus Nursalim in 1969. The company started out making glass and tableware for Indonesia but was soon exporting goods throughout the world. Eventually the Kedaung Industrial Group included more than 30 companies that made glassware, enamel cookware, ceramic housewares, stainlesssteel flatware, glass blocks, ceramic tiles and other products. It claimed to be one of the worlds largest manufacturers of glass, and had retail stores in several cities. The company also made reproduction early-American glass. In the United States, products were sold at Walmart and other stores. Q: We have an oak hanging map cabinet thats 51 inches wide by 21 inches high. It holds seven large pull-down canvas maps printed by W. & A.K. Johnston of Edinburgh, Scotland. They include maps of Asia, Africa, Europe, North and South America, the United States and a couple of the two hemispheres. The maps of Europe show the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Russian Empire, not the Soviet Union. The map of Africa is barely recognizable. Theres a large country in the center of the continent labeled Congo Free State. How old are the maps, and what is the full cabinet worth?

The rare 19th-century bellows sold at auction for $2,700. A: Look for a copyright date on the maps to date them more precisely. They predate World War I, which ended the Austro Hungarian Empire and saw the formation of the Soviet Union. The Congo Free State existed from 1885 to 1908, so the maps can more precisely be dated as pre-1908. William Johnston (1802-1888) and Alexander Keith Johnston (1804-1871) were partners in a printing business that they founded in Edinburgh in 1826. Alexander became a respected geographer, and the brothers firm eventually printed and sold maps, atlases, guidebooks and globes. Some very old maps can sell for millions. Your maps, designed for educational purposes, are not worth that much, but your cabinet and maps could sell for hundreds of dollars if the maps are in excellent condition. Tip: When rewiring an old Arts and Crafts lamp, use fabric-covered wire that looks very much like the silk-wrapped cord used at the turn of the 20th century.

Eleanor becomes her husbands liberal conscience and a sometimes controversial political force of her own. FRIDAY, SEPT. 19, 8 P.M. The Roosevelts: An Intimate History The Common Cause (1939-1944) FDR shatters the third-term tradition, struggles to prepare a reluctant country to enter World War II and, after Pearl Harbor, helps set the course toward Allied victory.

Diagnosed with congestive heart failure in 1943 and with the war still raging, FDR resolves to conceal his condition and run for a fourth term. SATURDAY, SEPT. 20, 8 P.M. The Roosevelts: An Intimate History A Strong and Active Faith (1944-1962) Frail and failing but determined to see the war through to victory, FDR wins re-election and begins planning for a peaceful postwar world, but a cerebral hemorrhage kills him at 63. His widow proves herself a shrewd politician and a skilled negotiator in her own right, as well as a champion of civil rights, civil liberties and the United Nations. When she dies in 1962, she is mourned everywhere as the First Lady of the World. SUNDAY, SEPT. 21, 8 P.M.

Can you tell me what hes been doing lately? Frieda S. in GeorgiaA: The world-champion Olympic speed skater is deep in training for the Ironman World Championship, a 140.6-mile triathlon competition that takes place Oct. 11 in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. I spoke with Apolo recently, and it just so happens that another DWTS champ was an impetus behind Apolos decision to compete. Hines Ward completed his first Ironman challenge in Kona last year, and I was inspired by it, he said. I had been thinking about doing it last year, but I was traveling so much, it didnt make sense. But I needed a challenge. I needed to inspire other people. I needed to inspire myself. I needed something that wasnt anything like speed skating. Apolo is excited to make his mark once competition gets under way, and he got some advice from Hines: The first thing Hines said to me was, Brother, Im praying for you. He said to just enjoy it and to take my time. Its once-in-a-lifetime opportunity its pretty incredible. Im in a whole new place now. Im more confident; Im stronger; Im getting leaner; and I cant wait to arrive in Kona. Its a good feeling. Q: I was shocked to hear of the canceling of A&Es Longmire. It was a great series. Why in Sam Hill did they cancel it, and to leave us hanging on who killed Longmires wife? Do you think another network will pick it up? Dominick C., via emailQ: Im a big fan of Longmire on A&E. Can you tell me why A&E would cancel one of the better shows on television? Mary E., via emailQ: What the devil is A&E thinking, canceling Longmire? Hal T., via emailA: This is just a sampling of irate reader letters Ive received about the canceling of the much-loved A&E drama, and to tell you the truth, I have no idea why it was canceled. The show is A&Es most-watched original drama series, and its season-three ratings had only a negligible dip from season two. There are heavy rumors that the USA network is a solid contender to pick up the series, so lets keep our fingers crossed for that (and let USA know you approve!).

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Komoon, 3300 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; 9484663; and 1575 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 596-9991 Continuing the current trend of restaurants offering multiple cuisines, Komoon serves the unusual combination of Japanese, Thai and Peruvian. The menu goes on for days. You can reasonably expect that whichever ethnic direction you take, Komoon will not disappoint. The ceviche was a tangle of tender squid, shrimp, shrimp and fish laced with juice and zest from lemons and limes, red onion slivers and cilantro plated with traditional accompaniments of sweet potato slices and fresh and toasted Peruvian corn. The Fancy Tuna Roll was packed with tuna, avocado, scallions and jalapeno. For entrees, you cant go wrong with a sumptuous Panang curry as spicy as you want it, or a comforting bowl of smoky soba noodles laden with chicken and crisp vegetables. Full bar. Food: 1/2 Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed September 2013 Avenue 5, 699 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 403-7110Theres no doubt the stylish new restaurant that arose in the space formerly occupied by McCabes Irish Pub is a stunner. Owner Phil McCabe spared no expense on the sleek dining room and bar with its rainbow of understated hues bone, ivory, slate grey enlivened by orange bar stools and walls of wine bottles that resemble waterfalls. Service flows as smoothly as the lines of the well-designed interior. The meal began with fresh bread served with three butters garlic, honey and truffle flavored, all of which were tasty. Lobster sliders using fried green tomatoes as the sandwich proved an imaginative pairing of North and South, complemented by parsnip slaw. Barbecue shrimp skewers held five large shrimp on a bed of miniature tomatoes with creamed corn, watermelon and touch of smoky barbecue sauce. From the signature dishes, we liked the Ashley Farms (antibioticand hormone-free) roasted chicken with bacon served with Brussels sprouts. But the $38 Avenue5 seafood risotto contained seriously undercooked risotto. A fruit tart had a lovely mix of fruits but a soggy crust. At the prices charged at Avenue5, there should be no bumps in the road. Food: 1/2 Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: 1/2 Reviewed April 2014 Maguro Sushi & Steak House, 895 Wiggins Pass Road, Naples; 591-0003Easily accessible but not so easy to find, Maguro is worth seeking out. Tucked into an outparcel at the corner of U.S. 41 and Wiggins Pass Road (sharing a parking lot with Bealls, Petco and other big-boxers), Maguro offers well-executed sushi and cooked entrees in one dining room and a full teppanyaki show and meal in another, both drenched in cool blue lights. The drink menu is inventive, too. I particularly liked the lychee martini. As for the food, everything we tasted, from the yellowtail nigiri to the Snow White roll (shrimp tempura and sliced cucumber, seaweed and rice topped with white tuna and unsweetened coconut, finished with spicy mayo and coconut sauce) to the miso soup, vegetable tempura and the shrimp and salmon hibachi combo, was carefully prepared and plated. The coconut bombe with layers of coconut cake, coconut custard and coconut icing proved an excellent finale for two. Full bar. Food: 1/2 Service: 1/2 Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2013 Trattoria Abruzzo, Pavilion Shopping Center, 835 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Naples; 596-8010 The Laccetti family has developed a loyal following even though this popular dining spot sits well back from the street on the Vanderbilt Beach Road side of the Pavilion Shopping Center. Youll find some surprises on the menu, like the calamari Adriatico, squid sauted with artichoke hearts, kalamata olives and cherry tomatoes, and housemade agnolotti nonno Paolo, large tender half-moons of ravioli stuffed with Parmigiano and fontina cheese topped with porcini mushrooms and a hint of truffle oil. Snapper Livornese consisted of a good-sized fillet topped with kalamatas, capers and anchovies in a light marinara sauce and the pollo ortolona was an impressive plate of boneless chicken breast with shiitake mushrooms, herbs, garlic and demi-glace with grand-reserve balsamic and a load of fresh arugula. A singer serenaded the room with Italian classics. Service could have been smoother when it came to the flow of courses. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed August 2014 Patrics, 2091 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 596-7708 Long-time area chef Patric Achilles and husband, Gary Teater, are back with a new little breakfast and lunch joint named, not surprisingly, Patrics. The owners are as friendly and charming as ever. While the cafe is petite about 35 seats the menu is not. There are loads of breakfast and lunch items, including paleo options (proteins, veggies, fruits, roots and nuts), of which the chef is a devotee. Want gluten-free? Theyve got that, too. For those have no such dietary limitations, try the Brie-stuffed French toast with peaches for a decadent, satisfying start to the day. The pot roast skillet was a hearty blend of home fries, pot roast, gravy, onions, eggs, cheddar cheese and a fresh biscuit. Even if youre full, take home some homemade chocolate-chocolate chip cookies for later. Food: 1/2 Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed June 2014 Key to ratings Superb Noteworthy Good Fair Poor

The Estero restaurant appeared to have something good going with its mlange of Cuban and other Caribbean cuisines and a striking dcor evoking Havana during Papas rum-soaked residency. How could all of that not add up to success in Southwest Florida? A Pensacola location is all that remains of the promising concept, and the palm fronds and plantation sh utters at Coconut Point have given way to a headspinning number of TV screens and oversized images of sports figures that are the trappings of Bokampers Sports Bar & Grill. Its the fifth location for a small chain started in Plantation by Kim Bokamper, a longtime Miami Dolphins player. Another Bokampers is located off Vanderbilt Beach Road in Naples. Not surprisingly, the menu is mostly dedicated to sports-bar fare: appetizers of dips and fried snacks along with wings, burgers and other sandwiches, flatbreads, sliders and tacos. Several salads and a few soups are available for patrons with lighter appetites. More substantial entrees include sirloin and churrasco steaks, fried chicken and fajitas. From our three-course sampling, it appears that things are running smoothly a month in at the newest Bokampers. The majority of the dishes we tried, though not particularly innovative, were nicely executed. And the restaurant is more than adequately staffed, so service is brisk and comprehensive. After Hemingways, the atmosphere at Bokampers can feel stripped-down and generic, but then again most customers of sports bars probably are more concerned with whether the (insert sports team of your choice here) game is on. Sitting in the massive double-height back bar room one of three bars in the sprawling establishment I could watch at least a half-dozen sports with one sweep of my eyes. We didnt get a look inside the screened patio, but most of the tables indoors are high tops and the stools are backless except for those at the bar, which doesnt make for the most comfortable dining. We asked for a standard table instead and were accommodated in a back alcove. When visiting a sports bar we drink beer, but theres a full menu of specialty drinks and wines to choose from at Bokampers. Most of the more interesting craft beers are available only by the bottle, at time when many bars are expanding their tap offerings. We opted for drafts of Guinness ($6.99) and Blue Point Toasted Lager ($5.99). The Starting Line Up features familiar tidbits such as spinach dip, nachos, calamari and buffalo shrimp along with trendier items like roasted red-pepper hummus, seared tuna wontons and fried macaroni and cheese balls. We chose a couple of new-to-Bokampers items. The jalapeno crab dip ($9.99) was a bubbling bowl of molten cheddar, sour cream and real blue crabmeat surrounded with warm tortilla chips for dipping. With Old Bay seasoning and sliced jalapenos also in play, the other ingredients could easily have overwhelmed the crab, but its flavor came shining through. We scooped the bowl clean. The Southwestern chipotle eggrolls ($9.99) are also a good bet. The warm, crunchy rolls were stuffed with tender chicken, corn, black beans, spinach, bell peppers and cheese for a mouth-pleasing array of flavors and textures. (The ranch dressing provided for dipping was really unnecessary.) Sliced diagonally and arranged like the points of a star, the rolls earned extra points for presentation. Used dishes were promptly cleared by our server and a bus person, and we were offered another round of beers. Throughout the evening, our server made sure that we wanted for nothing. Burgers are big on the Bokampers menu, and theyre made with a proprietary blend of premium 1855 Angus chuck and Wagyu beef, the latter of which is famous for its fat marbling. You can stick with one of the signature burgers or build your own with selected toppings. Theres also The Beast, a 4-pound monster with eight slices of bacon, four fried eggs and french fries. If you polish it off in less than an hour, its free; otherwise, its $34.99. I settled on the more reasonable Killer B burger ($11.99), an 8-ounce patty topped with applewood-smoked bacon, Swiss cheese, jalapenos, a fried onion ring and sauted mushrooms. Cooked medium, as ordered, the burger was pink and juicy within. It may seem like a minor miracle that I could taste it with all those add-ons, but they didnt overdo the onion rings or jalapenos. The french fries included were really good, too, hand-cut and nicely browned and salted. From the All Stars plates, we chose a smoke house brisket platter ($13.99). The meat itself was smoky and incredibly tender, but the pile of sliced beef was draped with a caramelized chipotle onion sauce that tasted more like a simple, too-sweet tomato sauce; if there were chipotle chilies in it, we couldnt taste their smoky heat. Oddly, a barbecue sauce also was served on the side, along with good cole slaw and whipped potatoes with beef gravy. After all of this, molten chocolate cake and blue berry buttersco tch bread pudding sounded too heavy for a final course. We opted instead for the deepfried Oreos ($5.99) with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream. The cake-like batter was so thick that we could barely taste the cookies, and it soaked up a lot of oil. I cant help thinking theres a better technique for pulling it off without destroying the cookies and ending up with a mouthful of greasy dough. The evening may have ended with a fumble, but mostly Bokampers demonstrated that it has enough going for it to stay in the game. Email dining news to firstname.lastname@example.org.

SEPTEMBER 2014 LUXE LIVING 3FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com DESIGN Q&A BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentPamela Durkins design philosophy has always been to surround yourself with what you love emphasis on you. As she aptly tells her clients, if you dont love it and its not something you are passionate about, whats the point in owning it? She also believes that less can have more meaning. Shed rather have two pieces she loves than 10 pieces of filler products. That philosophy is one reason she started creating her own products. Now in her new design space on Trade Center Way, she celebrated recently with a soft launch of her original pillows, bags, art and other accessories, many of which can survive Floridas toughest elements. Mrs. Durkins design projects range from new construction to whole-house remodel and office space, to clients simply asking for help placing existing furniture or strategizing a layout. She likes having a hand in how a house functions and says attractive design doesnt have to cost a fortune. One of her tricks to making a room pop for less is to use a swath of expensive wallpaper if you cant afford to do the whole room with it. LUXE caught up with Mrs. Durkin and asked her about her design accessories, getting the most out of your home design and her belief that design can bring a clients story to life. Q: Whats your favorite design trend right now? A: I love how people are finally starting to do away with the formal living room, which I find stuffy and non-functional. Entertaining has become a more casual and intimate experience, so people are creating spaces that really work for their lifestyle. Ive seen this formerly unused room become a game room, library and even a wine-tasting room. Q: What trend are you glad to see go by the wayside? A: The notion that when designing a house here in Florida, there is a look that is required. Clients are moving away from the Me, too design styles and venturing out to create their own look. Q: What design books do you recommend? A: Magazines are a clients best bet to see which trends they like. They can also scope out room layouts, different ways to hang art and how to arrange accessories in an interesting way. I personally like ELLE Dcor, Veranda and Wallpaper* Magazine. Q: If you could have another designer decorate your house, who would it be? A: This would absolutely have to be a collaboration, but I love working alongside other creative people and experiencing how their talent comes to life. I would bring in Victoria Beckham for her classic taste with a now vibe for the overall look, Marcel Wanders with his avant-garde ideas and finish it with interesting art pieces from a graffitibased designer called Scan. Q: What decor would you most want in your home? A: I like mixing old with new, such as antique wood with lacquer or intricate moldings on the wall painted all white. Ive always wanted an old farmhouse table in my kitchen, which I would surround with Kartell Louis Ghost chairs and add a Nelson Bubble lamp over top. Q: If a homeowner wants to go it alone, what advice can you offer? A: Start off with the pieces you absolutely love or have deep meaning to you (i.e., your grandmas rocking chair). I love to search Pinterest or Google an idea such as interesting living room layouts and discover what comes up. Have great base pieces, a neutral sofa and comfortable chairs, and dont be afraid of color in your accessories and art. Look in your closet to understand the look and color of what you like, and use that as a starting point for your overall idea. Have fun and just go for it. Q: Whats the most over-the-top luxury space youve ever seen? A: A few years back, I was able to tour Casa Casuarina, Gianni Versaces mansion in Miami Beach. It was an amazing place! The craftsmanship and level of detail was incredible. It was built in 1930, and Versace reportedly put $30 million in improvements into the site after he purchased it in 1992. There are painted frescoes and mosaics installed by Italian artisans in every space. The pool is even adorned with 24-karat gold. Simply incredible.

www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY6 LUXE LIVING SEPTEMBER 2014 SHOP TALKCultivating gardens and accessories that astound and inspire BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentNine years ago, Andrea Andy Sipe made Naples a little more beautiful when she opened the Planted Pot in North Naples. It has changed a bit from what Mrs. Sipe thought the business would be (it was a container-gardening place until the economy tanked). But like the gardens she grows, Mrs. Sipe found a way to thrive, reinventing the business as the go-to personalized garden resource for discerning homeowners. Today, the Planted Pot is a nursery, but the business goes far beyond that. Essentially, it is a nursery, garden shop and design center. From day one, our customers have always asked us if we could help them with problem areas and consult, Mrs. Sipe says, We discovered we could provide help with those dead zones where a plant wouldnt grow, or an area of their house or yard that needed help. If they needed a new look on the patio, we could fix that. So we became the company that found planting and landscape solutions. To wander around the nursery is to lose oneself in a space with every kind of potted plant imaginable. We want to make people smile and feel good about their space, so we sell plants, but we want people to know how the plant will perform, says Mrs. Sipe, who moved to Naples from Texas, where she worked for an interior landscaping company. I recall them doing studies of office workers and they found that people who worked in office buildings with plants were happier and more productive. Plants are eye candy. It makes us happy and feel good to see living things thriving. At Planted Pot, customers can see how certain plants will look in certain pottery and envision them in their own home environment. Like a magical garden, winding pathways lead to trellises and pots almost as tall as the shoppers themselves, brimming with all manner of greenery and blooms. We spend a little more money in freight because we dont buy collections of pottery, but that is why people love the pots because they are so unique and different, Mrs. Sipe says. There are French Anduze urns along with Vietnamese, Chinese and Malaysian pottery. Vietnamese is a big seller these days, but Mrs. Sipe loves the Chinese pottery with its unique glazes. Everyone who works at Planted Pot has the talent for pairing plants and pots to make gorgeous display plantings. In fact, plants and pots are a trick that top designers have been using for decades to enhance spaces. Much of Mrs. Sipes summer is spent maintaining her customers plants while they are out of town. Another chunk of her time is spent listening to people who just want to talk about plants. We try to pair the right plant with the right person who can devote the appropriate time required to care for it, whether thats a lot of care, or practically none at all, she says. The ZZ plant, for example, needs very little light or water its the quintessential plant for someone who cannot devote time to planting. While her shop has loads of brightly colored, glazed pots, she says she prefers terra cotta containers for her own plants because of the dramatic contrast its color provides to most foliage.

SEPTEMBER 2014 LUXE LIVING 9FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com COVER STORYWHEN A COMMUNITY IS BORN IN NAPLES, EVERYone scurries around to get a glimpse of the new digs. Are they as nice as Old Naples? As luxurious as Gulfshore Boulevard? Swanky enough to keep up with the Joneses? Or is the new community relaxed and coastal, for people who simply want to treasure the good life? The Isles of Collier Preserve recently opened its gates and showed off what all that construction along U.S. 41 in recent months has been about. There is still a lot of building going on, but residents are settling in and making themselves at home along the Cypress Waterway. Most of the time, hype surrounding new communities is just that: hype. Cue the golf course, pastel c ookie-cutter or heavy-Mediterranean houses crammed a foot from each other and complaining neighbors. But for once, the enthusiasm for a new gated community could be justified in the 2,400-acre Isles of Collier Preserve. We are not golfers, but we are kayakers and walkers and love nature. That was what drew us here.

Kris and Bob Gaffney, left, are happy to be settling into their new single-family home that is the Ginger design, above, in Isles of Collier Preserve. More than half of the development is dedicated to natural habitat and preservation, and residents are putting their money where their mouths are. There is no golf course. Because Isles of Collier Preserve is bordered on the south by Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, Naples Botanical Garden and Naples Bay, the community goes beyond protecting nature to a place of stewardship. This is the land of eco-friendly homeowners who have little interest in 9-irons and a lot of interest in the natural landscape. As much thought has gone into bridging the partnership between residents and the landscape as has gone into the Isles architecture. While residents will have access to golf and other memberships at nearby clubs, buyers are excited about kayaking, canoeing, hiking and biking alongside the flora and fauna of Southwest Florida. Nature lovers paradiseBernie Farley and Dottie Egan traveled all over Florida looking for a place to retire. The couple plan to be snowbirds for a few years while they still have family ties in Boston. The catch: They wanted the environment and weather of the Sunshine State. We bought kayaks and my husband is an angler, Mrs. Egan says. We love sports, and to be able to ride your bike next door was attractive to us. The couple settled on the Camellia Grande home, which allowed them to dump one of the garages to have a bigger floor plan and room for family. It is just the two of us, but we love that the guest quarters allows for guests to have their own bathroom, bedroom and media room. It sounds like a lot, but it is functional, Mrs. Egan says. Bob and Kris Gaffney have been in Florida for 18 years. They built a house on Marco Island, but they wanted to be closer to Naples. For their home in Isles of Collier Preserve, the active grandparents opted for the Ginger design with additional outdoor square footage where they can devise games for adoring grandkids to play. They also are planning to have a reading room in the loft above the front entryway, where theyll add a railing and ladder. We are not golfers, but we are kayakers and walkers and love nature. That was what drew us here, says Mrs. Gaffney, an animal lover who with her husband volunteers at The Naples Zoo and has taken multiple trips to Africa. We liked that the people in charge of the landscaping here went to the botanical garden for advice, rather than just plant things for aesthetic reasons. Shes referring to the relationship forged between Minto Communities, which built the development, and Naples Botanical Garden. More than half of this property is preserve with eight miles of approved pathways. You can kayak all the way to the Gulf from the preserve, says Minto Senior Vice President Bill Bullock. We have partnerships with The Conservancy, Rookery Bay and FGCU, enabling researchers to continue their degree program, and Naples Botanical Garden. All of this is important because this community will be all about environmental stewardship. There is an Isles at Collier Preserve Community Foundation funded by $250 from each homeowners closing costs that is matched by the developer, and the residents run it. Other relationships include a marine partnership with Hamilton Harbor and Windstar Gold Club. Every home has a view of a lake or the preserve, and all of the screen doors pull all the way open.

SEPTEMBER 2014 LUXE LIVING 11FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com COVER STORYThe communitys sales center looks more like something youd find at a fish and wildlife welcome center, complete with dioramas of the areas landscape and history of the waterways. Its an educational model of the preserve that teaches new residents and visitors about the area where theyll be living. The homes purchased by Mr. Farley and Ms. Egan and the Gaffneys are both single-family reidences. Coach homes are another option in Isles of Collier Preserve. Three designs are available: the Hibiscus Grande, Orchid Grande and Caribewood. All are classic coastal architecture but with high ceilings ranging from one to three stories, and some have amenities including private elevators, two-car garages and third-floor nature observatories with balcony and spiral staircase. Another perk: no shared hallways with the other attached residences. We built the coach homes to be lockand-leave, Mr. Bullock says. They are built like fortresses, but they are charming. To build old Florida architecture, you have to go at it 100 percent, and if you do any less, it looks fake. Views include the arched bridge across the Cypress Waterway and blueway. Also, several tokens of Old Naples are scattered throughout the property. At Disney, there are all these hidden Mickeys; we have things here in homage to Old Naples and the Collier family. The amenities building is inspired by the old Naples Beach Hotel, he says, noting that Naples historians will also recognize the communitys bridge architecture. We have a lot of architectural details reminiscent of that old style. ROB HARRIS / COURTESY PHOTOSCoach homes in Isles of Collier Preserve are unique in that they have no shared hallways. Above: Its easy to see how the sunroom in the Caribewood home gets its name. Left: The Camellia is the singlefamily design that Dottie Egan and Bernie Farley of Boston decided on for their retirement residence. The entrance to Isles of Collier Preserve is on U.S. 41/Tamiami Trail East, south of Thomasson Drive. Visitors begin tours at the Discovery Sales Center, which is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. For information, call (888) 693-4306 or visit minto a.com.

SEPTEMBER 2014 LUXE LIVING 13FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com DESIGN MAKEOVER BY KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentThe whole-house remodel off Orange Blossom Road is still in progress plastic still adorns many of the rooms, and an addition still underway will add sumptuous square footage to the home. But the kitchen is done, and it is something to behold. Affordable Flooring & Kitchens handled the remodel, taking the room from an outdated, country French theme to a refreshing, functional space of understated elegance and sensuous accents. In the communities off GoodletteFrank and Orange Blossom roads, most of the homes are deceptively big. This makeover was no exception. From the road, it doesnt seem that big; but walking into the modest entryway, its clear just how expansive the home is. The dcor throughout was seriously dated, something the new homeowners could not abide. Enter Affordable Flooring & Kitchens. The most important thing to remember is to find one product that you really like and match everything around that, the companys Melissa ONeill says about a remodeling project of this size. We also always recommend that the client keep the resale value in mind when making decisions, so we always ask how long they plan to continue to live in the property. If it is less than five years, then its important to keep the resale value in mind. There were few challenges on this project. When doing a complete remodel as ONeills company did, keeping the project moving forward and everyone on schedule is difficult. But to the homeowner, the finished project is all that matters. We do all that we can to keep to the time frame that we have agreed to with the client, Ms. ONeill says. This means visiting the job site every day to ensure all parties have completed their scope of work. Thankfully, this project went pretty smoothly. She says the most noticeable difference the remodel made is the way the flooring and kitchen have opened up the main living area. White cabinetry and open windows created an inviting atmosphere for the homeowners to display collectibles and still be able to have space to entertain. Ms. ONeill does have one supersecret design tip for a less-stress makeover that works every time. We always recommend that our clients create contrast in every project they undertake in their homes, she says. For example, if you are using white cabinetry, use dark countertops. Affordable Flooring & Kitchens also remodeled the bathrooms, laundry room, all flooring and the outdoor fireplace in this home. We cant wait to see those results.
