Instead, services were cobbled together through several agencies. The elderly often went without the company of their peers, often prevented by lack of mobility, money and health. The situation started to change for many seniors in Collier County in January 2014, when Jewish Family & Community Services opened its senior center. Non-sectarian and welcoming all comers, the center uses its parent organizations social services and its large community center to fill gaps in the areas senior care.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 18-24, 2015 Bring Your Highest Expectations LIVINGSTON ROADPINE RIDGE ROAD EXIT 107WHIPPORWILL LANE N COMMENTARY Welcome to FloridaOn behalf of all 19.2 million Floridians who havent yet had time on behalf of the states Greater Chambers of Commerce, its Better Business Bureaus, its various parties (Republican Party, Democratic Party, Tea Party, Tupperware Party, Beer Party, Birthday Party, Beach Blanket Bingo Party, Frat Party, Pool Party and Spa Party to name only a few) I want to extend a warm invitation of welcome to every special interest group, every misogynistic school board member or local government official, every corporate-owned politician, every private corporation in need of tax breaks, and each and every deregulation lobbyist for any cause. Come on in (bring your money, of course), the Florida waters just fine for you these days even if it is choked with algal blooms, bubbling with oil clots, festering with bacterial invaders that could kill an elephant herd at 800 yards, and crowded with bathers who refuse to remove their Glocks from their hips when they go in the water because open carry is just so much fun. But let me offer a special welcome to those lobbyists who champion deregulation for industry, health care and the manufacturers of combat-grade weapons that every non-felonious adult can purchase as a matter of state law. Oh, and welcome, too, to all those Americans from places like Utah and Texas and such who dont cotton to no stinckin-pickin, smarty-pants-in, federal guvmint oversight and control (at least until it floods in Texas, when the clamor for help is louder than a Greek chorus). I cant remember a time when conditions have been riper for a hands-off regression in Florida, straight from 21stcentury progress to 19th-century manifest destiny. In these conditions, money talks louder than votes and power is right and every man can not only get what he deserves, but take what others deserve too, if regulations dont stop him. Not only that, but he can tell women what to do and wear, too. Its almost as much fun here as a vacation in Riyadh. As of last week when Gov. Rick Scott signed the new law, women have to notify authorities and then wait before they can get an abortion, if thats what they choose to do. Im sorry, Little Lady. Not unless you check in with the Big Guy, first, then come back tomorrow, hear? You gotta love Florida I do. And while youre lovin it, just glance around and ask yourself: Whos riding high here in the Sunshine State? Not voters. Not the underemployed or the underpaid or the under-the-weatherwith-no-health-insurance. Not the environment. Not taxpayers in some places (Lee County, for example), who will now have to shoulder the costs of future development since their elected leaders have amputated sizeable portions of the impact fees developers used to pay to help cover their portion of growth. Not brainy young women who win appointments to the National Honor Society, take their jackets off at the ceremony to reveal a dress with straps and get stripped of their honor because people can see their arms and the tops of their shoulders. That privilege, by the way, comes with this one: Afterwards, the young woman might get reinstated finally. But shell also get berated publicly by a j owly white man in a suit who first tries to befriend her on Facebook (school board member Steve Teuber). In Tallahassee, meanwhile, we have a legislature that doesnt have to worry about voters, even after voters chose by a wide margin to set aside $700 million to buy and preserve land, by approving a thing called Amendment 1. So what? The House and Senate agreed to spend only $55 million strictly on that purpose, next year. And the House itself? There, representatives just turned down billions of dollars in federal aid for those who are uninsured under a Medicaid program including money that Florida taxpayers already paid into the system because they dont like the president, and probably think he came from Kenya. That happened even though their fellow Republicans in the Senate encouraged them not to be so bull-headed. They probably think the world was created 6,000 years ago, too, so it all makes sense. And why are the ice caps melting? Oh, you know, just because the ice caps feel like it. Its worth pointing out that our legislature is still in a special session this week, the third and final week in which taxpayers continue to keep them in high style in the capital after they failed to come up with a budget during the regular session that ended six weeks ago. And why? Because when they rejected Medicaid expansion, they had to rely on some other federal money, known as the Low Income Pool, which reimburses hospitals that treat those without insurance or a doctor. But that wasnt enough, so last week our legislators agreed to boost it with $400 million more from taxpayers. Who (lets remember) have already paid for this, once. Did I remember to invite hunters? No, I dont think I did. But youll like it here, so come on down and get yourself a bear. We took them off the list of creatures about to go extinct in 2012, and this month the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is expected to approve an October bear hunt, because their numbers had grown so large 2,500 to 3,000 are running around now, the FWC estimates. There were once probably about 12,000. Besides, they arent like grizzlies, or even the big blacks of the West theyre a lot less aggressive toward people, which means they probably wont kill you, even if you make a mistake. Thats sort of like Florida voters. You can lobby or legislate against their interests all day, and they still might not vote you out of office. So come on down and join the fun. c A T s g u roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA4 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 18-24, 2015 GUEST OPINIONHigh stakes for black bears and our Southwest Florida community BY AMBER CROOKSConservancy of Southwest FloridaOn behalf of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida and our more than 6,500 supporting families, we hope the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will abandon its black bear hunting proposal. Given the overwhelming public concern, lack of support for the FWC proposal, missing scientific information, and potential for longlasting effects to the bear population, we believe the most appropriate decision is to focus resources on remedies that can truly reduce human-bear conflicts. At its last meeting, the FWC acknowledged that scientific studies have not shown that hunting reduces conflicts. Rather, trash management is the most effective way of curbing human-bear interaction. Given this data, the FWC can be a leader in preventing conflicts by recommending the denial of developments in environmentally-sensitive lands, requiring Bear Wise practices for new development permits, and creating a statewide ordinance to help local communities manage trash and other attractants. The Conservancy remains committed to assisting in these efforts. At its June 24 meeting, the FWC may decide to allow up to 20 percent of the bear population to be hunted without an updated population estimate. Scientific studies and are being conducted right now, to be complete by fall 2016, are expected to provide essential information to ensure that the proposed hunt wont imperil the bear in any of its subpopulations. Until we have this data, allowing a hunt is not appropriate. In the last few months, the FWC has sought to completely overhaul its management of black bears and not for the better. Only three years ago, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida was testifying before the FWC, asking for bears to be retained on the protected species list. Our concerns that the bear population may not be secure enough to warrant removal of imperiled species protections were shared by several notable scientists. Some bear populations are doing well; other isolated bear populations are in dire straits. Indeed, since the bear has been delisted from the protected list, the bear population in the Glades County area has been reduced from a bare minimum sustainable number of 200, to only about 75 bears. As it stands, this population is at extreme risk for local extinction. Simultaneously, FWC recently implemented a new and aggressive approach of euthanizing conflict bears (aka the One-Strike Rule). As a result, already in 2015, 50 bears have been euthanized. If bear hunting is approved, it will be conducted without a full understanding of how the one-strike rule is impacting bear population. Additionally, bear populations in Lee and Collier counties are facing habitat reduction from rampant development and increasing threats from negative human-bear conflicts including the continued record-high number of bears killed on our roadways. Given this information, the Conservancy has asked to collaborate with the FWC to focus its efforts to address two major threats to bears: 1. The continued loss and fragmentation of habitat. 2. The related conflicts that come from unmanaged trash and other food attractants (such as accessible pet food, bird feeders, etc.). Southwest Florida has a lot to lose with the FWCs pending decision on bear management, as we have one of the states most imperiled subpopulations, and also just to the south of that, the area where a majority of the bears may be taken in the hunt. Rushing toward a hunt is leading the FWC astray from the real task at hand. With the FWC at the helm, working as the conservation agency it is entrusted to be by the public, we can and should focus on meaningful measures toward habitat protection, citizen education, and conflict management, not bear hunting. The end of the Clinton coalitionEvery time Hillary Clinton makes a left-wing policy pronouncement, it is, in effect, another eulogy marking the death of the coalition and style of politics that twice made her husband president. Bill Clinton got elected by peeling off working-class whites and suburbanites from the Republican Party, while holding traditional Democratic voters. He made significant geographic inroads, winning a handful of Southern states both in 1992 and in his 1996 re-election, when he narr owly won the popular vote in the region as a whole. This is all very interesting, but the Clinton coalition is rusty and up on blocks in some overgrown backyard like the El Camino pickup he once boasted about. And Hillary knows it. Who is pushing Hillary to the left? Hillary is. Its sheer electoral necessity. As Sean Trende of the website RealClearPolitics puts it, President Barack Obama has narrowed but deepened the Clinton coalition. He blew the doors off it among base Democratic voters. As Philip Klein of the Washington Examiner points out, Democrats had won the 18to 24-yearold vote by 11.5 points on average and the 25to 29-year-olds by about 7 points on average from 1992 to 2004. Obama won those groups by more than 30 points in 2008 and 20 points in 2012. He outdid himself among minorities, liberals and upper-class suburbanites. Obama, Klein notes, amped up not just his margin among African-American voters, but their turnout. Elsewhere in the former Clinton coalition, though, his support collapsed, with older and blue-collar whites continuing to flee the Democrats. Even if Hillary wanted to try to recapture those kinds of voters, its not clear that she could, and the effort would risk alienating the Obama supporters she needs. So the question for Hillary is whether a 67-year-old candidate whos not a racial minority or particularly exciting can re-energize the electoral coalition defined by a youthful African-American who rose to prominence on rhetorical flights of fancy about hope and change. Shes certainly not going to do it by recapitulating the politics of Bill. He hewed to the political center. He played defense on cultural issues. He balanced the budget (at the insistence of a Republican Congress). He touted, at least after his first two years, smallscale government programs of symbolic significance. He was tough on crime and relatively hawkish. Everything indicates shes going to do and be the opposite. Hillary will make herself a paladin of the left, and hope to energize and frighten the constituent parts of the Democratic base enough to walk the treacherously narrow electoral path of President Obama. This is the price of victory Obamastyle. Despite his rhetoric of unity, Obama depends on a politics that writes off much of the country and depends on turning out voters already inclined to support him. It is less a politics of persuasion than of mobilization. For Hillary, this means the centrism and practicality of her husband have to be jettisoned, so what remains from the Clintonism of yore is mostly the shady dealings and shameless insincerity. But she really has no choice. Its go left or go home. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA6 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 18-24, 2015 Tamarian Rugs The Makes The Room ROOTED IN NAPLESAdults behind the wheel set the example for future driversMy inbox can be a frightening place sometimes, and when I get around to clearing and organizing it, I often find some gem of an item that totally flew past me. In my mind, those emails anthropomorphize into cold limp fish, accusing me of neglect with their dilated, jellified eyes. I told you my email is scary. I found a few of those stinkers last week, but one from Collier County Public Schools was still flopping around on deck and gasping for breath, begging me to do something useful with it. On Friday, June 5, the school district partnered with AT&T to scare the pants off teenaged drivers with some harrowing statistics about distracted driving and smart phones. I dont know if it worked God knows I was pretty thick-skulled when I started driving but their statistics combined with the frustration I felt driving during season scared me straight about modeling good driving habits to my kids. I feel like Im pretty vigilant about keeping my phone out of reach while Im behind the wheel. My kids are in the back seat most of the time and their safety aside, keeping my phone in my purse spares me the aggravation of listening to a little girl whine about needing Minecraft because shes bored. Bored during the seven-minute car ride to Grandmas house, bored during the threeminute ride to the grocery store, bored on the way to school. She is so perpetually bored in the car that Im worried she might link boredom on the road with smartphone relief in the future, because she does wear me down sometimes. So, parents, if you need some sobering stats on what your teenagers think is appropriate use of their commute, take a look at the numbers AT&T provided us: Seventy-five percent of polled teenagers said texting and driving is common among their friends. Nearly 40 percent of smartphone owners use their social media accounts while driving; 30 percent use the Internet, and 10 percent video chat. Thirty percent of people who admit to using Twitter while driving say they do it all the time. Think about the age of Twitters main demographic for a minute its not the snowbirds. Of drivers who shoot videos while driving, 27 percent think they can do it safely. Seasoned drivers know that driving is deadly dull and no one wants to watch us do it. According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety, accidents involving distracted driving have increased by 25 percent since 2012, and even though teens represent only 5 percent of the driving population, they were responsible for 12 percent of those accidents. There is still an 88 percent differential that grown adults have to account for. It seems to me that the challenge of discouraging this kind of behavior behind the wheel is to stigmatize it in the same manner that drunk driving is. In many states, a person can be charged with vehicular manslaughter if they manage to kill another motorist while fooling with their phones. However, making the social link between managing communication (i.e., your life) and killing yourself and/or others is not easy. To most adults humans, keeping your life together while driving is not the same thing as getting loose on a Saturday night and driving yourself home. Somehow, with the advent of cell phones and instant communication, our sense of timing and scheduling has been pushed to the edge. For instance, people are now encouraged to notify people when they are going to be a few minutes late by sending a text or making a quick call usually in the car. In fact, its almost rude not to anymore. Ten years ago, a person was simply 15 minutes late and apologized on arrival we dont want to give each other that leeway anymore because everyone is flying by the seat of their pants, depending on up-tothe-second notification and confirmation to make plans. We are responsible to everyone and no one for our time and have created some really dangerous habits as a result. It should be no surprise that our children adopt similar behaviors when driving and add to it they arent making too much of a logical leap to think tweeting isnt so bad if their parents are texting. So we should stop. Besides, leaving our phones untouched allows us to be so much more self-righteous about the driving habits of snowbirds, which is totally worth it. Despite clutching her pearls at the habits of teenagers, Lindsey Nesmith is not above texting dissertations at stoplights. b l r m i i lindseyNESMITHlnesmith@floridaweekly.com

In 2013 alone, 371,645 people were injured and 2,927 were killed in crashes that involved a teen driver. The report was released at the start of the 00 Deadliest Days, the period between Memorial Day and Labor Day when teen crash fatalities historically climb. Teen crash rates are higher than any other age group, and this data confirms that the impact of their crashes extends well beyond the teen who is behind the wheel, says Peter Kissinger, president and CEO of the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. Since teens drive more during the summer than any other season, this insight is a timely reminder to everyone drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists to be mindful when sharing the roads with young drivers. The study analyzed data from 19942014 of police-reported crashes of drivers ages 15-19 and found that: While the overall number of teen crashes is down, the majority of people killed (66 percent) and injured (67 percent) in crashes involving a teen driver are people other than the teen themselves. Nearly 50 percent of those injured were in another vehicle, 17 percent were in the teen drivers car and 2 percent were non-motorists (i.e., pedestrian, bicyclist). Nearly 30 percent of those killed were in another car, 27 percent were the teens passenger and 10 percent were non-motorists. AAA is promoting the study findings to raise attention among parents of teen drivers and all road users during the 00 Deadliest Days period. Based on AAAs analysis of the governments Fatality Analysis Reporting System, in 2013 an average of 220 teen drivers and passengers died in traffic crashes during each of the summer months, a 43 percent increase compared to the rest of the year. Keeping teen drivers safe is the shared responsibility of parents, policy makers, other motorists and obviously the teens themselves, says AAA traffic safety consultant Matt Nasworthy. AAA has long advocated on behalf of teen drivers and their families and has been a leader at the state level in supporting the implementation and improvement of both graduated drivers SEE AAA, A17
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 18-24, 2015 defined by a private foundation called Lumina (from the Latin word for light) with a billion-dollar-plus endowment trying to muscle-up education in the United States its magic. Hard economic magic, a cooking fire of sorts. And now that economic cooking fire has been lit beneath the soup of Southwest Florida in a program known as the FutureMakers Coalition. The title is apt. Its tailored and fit to the region by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation, which has brought together a network of experts and advocates. The foundation is working with Lumina coaches and using a new and never-before-harnessed cadre of team members from business, education and government. When it comes to attainment equity, they can see the light, and for two reasons: one, its worth immense community wealth (not to mention better personal fortune, for many) over the next 20 years. And two, we dont have it. As it stands, if Southwest Florida were the United States in microcosm, wed rank way down in the so-called second world on the planet for level of education, at 27 percent: thats the percentage of adults here who hold post-secondary degrees or certificates. The national average is 40 percent. Which itself ranks the United States at only number 13 among developed nations for level of education. And that statistic is just plain flat dangerous, says Lumina. (Canada, for example, ranges up near 60 percent, according to Lumina statistics.) So the FutureMakers Coalition has a single definable goal: to raise the level of those with certificates or college degrees from 27 percent to 40 percent by the year 2025, in Southwest Florida. In the United States, meanwhile, the goal of the Lumina Foundation, which is based in Indianapolis, is to raise the percentage from 40 to 60 percent. How? By working within the decades-old educational system as well as disrupting it, says Jamie Merisotis, the president and CEO of Lumina. Were working side by side with employers, postsecondary education leaders, and community members in 75 metro areas to encourage broader adoption of and support for Goal 2025, he explains at ssireview.org. Those communities will shape their educations to fit their needs and residents through significant technical and planning assistance, data tools, and flexible funding. Which sounds nice, but also requires that communities redefine success in education by rewarding all forms of postsecondary learning, Mr. Merisotis argues. A core element of this approach is a strategic document called the Degree Qualifications Profile, which defines the skills and knowledge students need to earn degrees at various levels. In short, the DQP shifts the discussion on campuses from What are we going to teach? to What should our students know and be able to do? What knowledge and skills must they be able to demonstrate to thrive? If it sounds easy enough, it may not be. Attainment equity simply means getting a much greater percentage of people with high school diplomas or GEDs to go on in their educations to earn useful certificates or college diplomas. And that means finding new ways to reach adults who want to come back to college or certified training programs, and first generation students whose parents dont hold post-secondary degrees, and low-income and minority students who cant figure out how to tap into a system that can offer money and help. At the FutureMakers Coalition, they call those people st century students, the ones we need to reach to make the society stronger and wealthier. When the statistic is broken down that 40 percent of adult Americans have post-high school degrees or certificates, now the demographics of 21st century students become more clear: Among Asian American adults, 59 percent have post-secondary certificates or degrees. Among whites, its 44 percent, African Americans 27 percent, Native Americans 23 percent, and Latinos 20 percent, Lumina figures show. But why bother with all that if youre getting up and going into the salt mines every day, and youre not an educator? Why should such diverse organizations and some of their best thinkers across the region get behind this, volunteering their time (which, after all, is money) outfits such as Fifth Third Bank, Wells Fargo, The Microenterprise Institute of Goodwill, Deva Industries, CareerSource of Southwest Florida, the city of Fort Myers, the Southwest Florida Regional Technology Partnership, Lee Memorial Health System, the PACE Center for Girls, Florida Gulf Coast University, Florida SouthWestern State College, Keiser University and Hodges University, the Scientists Society of Southwest Florida, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Charlotte County, Al and Nancy Burnett Charitable Foundation, the engineering and planning firm, EnSight, the Glades Education Foundation, the Collier, Lee and Charlotte county school districts, the Guadalupe Center, the Horizon Council, PR Zebra and Florida Weekly, among many others? Heres the answer and its based on this demonstrable statistic: Those who earn degrees or useful certificates after high school will, on average, take in $2.8 million more in their working lifetimes than those who dont, government statistics show. And when that happens, the places those people live, the children those people raise, the businesses and organizations that pay those people salaries and benefits, along with those people themselves can contribute significantly more to their communities and their country, and probably have a lot more fun in the meantime. Thats why the Lumina Foundation has now chosen the five-county region we call Southwest Florida to become one of the key metro or sub-metro regions in the U.S. to make fundamental changes in the way we, as a region, approach education.Boots on the groundIts happening in 74 other regions or major metropolitan areas in the U.S., as well, says Tessa LeSage, director of social innovation and sustainability at the Community Foundation, or as she puts it, the woman with the neatest job title in the world. The Lumina Foundation, administering grants of about $50 million annually and guiding the various regions, has chosen Southwest Florida because of the increasing population here 1.2 million and climbing and because the regions struggles to raise the level of education, and to avoid brain drain, as they call it when young people move away, taking their skills elsewhere. Ms. LeSage herself is a model for the future, perhaps, like many of those who are joining the FutureMakers Coalitions and its special teams: the Aspiration and Preparation team (35 team members to date); Access and Entry (13); Persistence and Progress (11); Completion (32); Data (six) and Media (seven team members). Ms. LeSage grew up here before getting a higher education in Boston and then returning with her brainpower, education and talent to her birthplace, making her the model of deportment of the FutureMakers Coalition. She is now raising her own children in the region, and she describes what the FutureMakers Coalition will make happen, this way: This is a cradle to career system, which includes education and workforce development and economic development and jobs each of the functions in our (community). My job is to get people on these teams. I say, Were not here to create a new job for you. We want you to come be a part of this team and have it enhance, and make your work easier and more effective. Most people are thrilled, and they want to get on board.VoicesHere are the voices of just a few of those who are stepping in who have gathered for their first strategy meetings, who are now able to work with such coalitions in other cities or regions, and who consult with coaches at Lumina. TEAM COMPLETION Peg Elmore, director of business, Career Source Southwest FloridaWe are in our early stages. Its an ambitious goal but I do think its achievable. We support this as part of what we do. We work within the five counties now, and we know there are thousands who cross county lines every day for work. At the last meeting we broke up into different groups, asking who was repping somebody, who was doing training or working in the high schools then we did asset mapping (using data to understand who and what is available). I walked away thinking, Wow we have a lot of resources the breadth of them everything from needing space, to funding, to contacts and collaborative efforts its across the board. More people are moving into Florida instead of out if it. And we need trained and educated people.CLIMBINGFrom page 1LESAGE ELMORE Were not here to create a new job for you.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 18-24, 2015 NEWS A9 Even within the hospitality industry the value of credentials can be crucial and sometimes people dont know what they dont know. But they can enter into a tiny program and learn; theres so much more to the software than they realize. So the act of getting the credential is a learning and growing experience itself. We must all be lifelong learners. Even though unemployment is now at a low of roughly 5 percent, I work with businesses who are seeking qualified talent on a daily basis. And there are gaps in occupations. Computer skills, the building trades theres an instructor at the Fort Myers Institute of Technology whos having trouble keeping the automotive service technicians in the class long enough to graduate because they can get such good jobs even before they finish. And insurance programs that affect the health-care industry. We have a number of medical personnel who have learned on the job, but with tighter insurance regulations, its critical they get certified. TEAM PERSISTENCE AND PROGRESS Gina Frazier, president of Deva Industries. If we are to have an impact, we must take a total systems approach, involving not just the schools but local businesses, nonprofits, government entities, private citizens, and the students themselves. We need ways to excite kids about learning, so they want to go on for degrees or certifications. Especially those kids facing circumstances that place them at risk. There are many great programs locally that do this, such as those through the JROTC, I Will Mentorship Foundation, Kappa Alpha PSI Educational Foundation, Uncommon Friends Foundation, Lee County Electric Coop, to name just a few. What I do at Deva for Good (Ms. Fraziers pro-bono arm) is help make the connections and facilitate collaboration among those who can make a difference. I look at things from a big system approach how do things interact together? Most people think in a silo youre thinking one way, the only way education occurs. But thats not the case. How do you get kids excited? They have to want to do it, to know there are possibilities and, they have to have the financial responsibility. When I was young, I hated math in school. Later I entered dance competitions, and I realized it was all geometry. Theyre doing angles and curves. And I thought, Why didnt they tell us this is in school? And I developed a computer program that would create patterns for the dance. Everything around us is math. It made me look at the world completely differently. So if you can make it meaningful to kids, you can change how they feel about learning. Getting that 27 percent up to 40? Thats going to be a tough goal. Its a campaign, a marketing campaign. We need to pull in students to get their opinions, and ask them, Why arent you going off to be educated (after high school)? I dont think I saw any students in the meeting. TEAM DATA Brent Kettler, data consultantData, says Tessa LeSage, is one of the FutureMakers Coalitions most powerful tools. We can use Geographic Information Systems to create layered maps with data that let you understand almost anything about a community: what infrastructure is in place, what access to internet service are in place, what properties are already zoned or have entitlements, or, as in the Tampa Bay Regional Partnership, a map on top of commercial or office space that also offers information about the workforce, the kinds of degrees or certificates they have and where they are. And the other side is understanding whats going on in terms of the cradle to career system, with data. Enter Brent Kettler. When I worked for Lee Countys Economic Development Office, my role morphed into business intelligence, technology, and the role of databases Because economic development has morphed into something else. Traditionally, businesses would come to different metro areas and vet the area for clients and everything else quality of life, education, and workforce. Theyd physically show up, doing interviews and getting background. But it has a different face, and theres this younger generation of directors, in charge as senior level economic development directors, and their understanding of information, and they way mine it and use it is different. Now you can provide data sets that paint a picture. So where this spins into Lumina and Tessa and my assistance with the FutureMakers Coalition is here: I started to look at our numbers and the 27 percent of post secondary attainment, and ask a couple of questions. That 13 percent we want to make up, theres a lack of definition about what a post secondary degree or certificate is it has to be employable, but theres a problem: there are all these great information tools out there, and on line, but theyre hard to measure, to track. I was shocked at how many (good programs) there are down here and how employable these folks are who come from them. So the meat and bones is: how are we going to achieve this, and how can we make this effort work. We have to figure out what our landscape looks like. The Census tells us that Lee County alone has just north of 15,000 employers, and 92 percent of businesses have less than 20 employees. You look at revenue of organizations and head count to learn that there are 1.12 IT employees per 20 head count. So that means that every single business relies on technology now. Its multifaceted, and I would be very shocked if Collier and Charlotte are not similar. Information security, website security, customer data management those dont require four-year degrees. So this gets into social part of it. Theres a ton of momentum here for this, theres no state tax, a great broadband structure, and the rent isnt too bad either. And with ACA and the availability of health care, you can work by yourself, if you have some kind of usable skills. So this is a great place to live. But theres a problem, and thats brain drain or migration of workers its a hole in the boat. Business is coming in, but the workforce leaks. TEAM ASPIRATION AND PREPARATION Jonathan Romine, landscape architect and principal at EnSite Inc. Im doing this in part because I wanted to help mentor youth and at-risk kids pipe dream stuff who didnt have a fairy tale upbringing, like I did. And my wife is a public school teacher. I also didnt believe we should be waiting until retirement before we give back. I think it is a duty and corporate responsibility to be involved not just invested but involved. As a business owner, I was looking for something that didnt have a huge liability attached to it, too. I have two kids Im mentoring now. Theyre both going to be seniors. We all had conversations about the FutureMakers program. A lot of times these kids have no money, so they cant go to college in their minds, but they dont realize whats out there. Theres money available if they keep up their GPAs and finish. So the idea of helping these kids understand opportunity appeals to me. This is still the only country where anybody can make it if theyre willing to try. And I still think public education is the most valuable tool available to everybody, because you cannot be successful without education. Im not saying everybody should go to college, but education is still the foundation. And as a country, the fact that we provide every single child with access is wonderful. So Im committed. My mom, my wife, my mother-in-law, some of my cousins theyre all teachers. At the end of the day, they make pennies but they produce productive citizens. We take that for granted far too often. I love it when people say how awful public schools are and how great private schools are, and I ask them when was the last time they rolled up their sleeves and stepped in to help. Thats what were doing here. TEAM ASPIRATION AND PREPARATION Ava Barrett, library director for Hendry CountyFutureMakers is a great idea. Southwest Florida has this challenge, and with the number of certifications we have, this is a great opportunity for us to help change these kinds of statistics that are not very complimentary. I am in Clewiston, and I think the statistics might be worse here than anywhere else. My role: To be able to work with local entities, such as CareerSource, to see how I can run programs to reach people who can get this done. I can be there to help sign people up for postsecondary degrees or certificates, and for the money that can help them pay for it. So weve started to talk to young people, and help them sign up for (scholarships for low-income students). There is money available. Free money, and they cant take advantage of it if they dont know how. So my role is to push to push the idea of getting them scholarship and aid money. That way we will have more certified people. Another thing Im doing at my library we have purchased subscriptions to some Microsoft IT academy places. Through this they are able to get Microsoft certifications and weve started off with Office. Right now, were talking with Florida SouthWestern State College about how we can partner to help provide instruction so we can get more people who are qualified. This looks positive for the Hendry County library system and were hoping to entice people from Belle Glade and Moore Haven as well as LaBelle and Harlem. I believe its doable. If we put all our effort into do it, its possible to move those percentages. Especially if were working with the school system, and not only with people still in schools, but many out of school.

COME FOR SUMMER. FIND YOUR WAY HOME. NORTH CAROLINA: CASHIERS, FRANKLIN, HIGHLANDS, LAKE GLENVILLE, LAKE TOXAWAY, SAPPHIRE VALLEY, BURLINGAMEthat we were located right in the bullseye of the target for where the greatest need was, executive director Jaclynn Faffer, Ph.D., says. The idea started in November 2012 when the Leadership Coalition on Aging in Collier County, an offshoot of Collier Senior Services, commissioned a study from Florida Gulf Coast Universitys College of Social Work on demographics of the elderly in the community. The study clearly indicated that there was a need for a senior center, Ms. Faffer says. It showed that many of them are alone, lonely and required socialization. More than that, the study found that many retirees are living in poverty or with food insecurity, isolated from services because they live in gated communities. Those gates can often prevent social services from investigating who lies beyond and needs help. The countrys economic turmoil hit the senior community hard, and they wont have the opportunity to improve their finances, says Thomas Felke, an assistant professor at FGCU who led the study. Everybody thinks of Naples as this paradise and a grand place to retire, he said. One of the things that really complicates this is that we have so many gated communities in an area where everyone likes to pride themselves on this being paradise People who moved into those communities to live out the rest of their days and be very comfortable found themselves in a very different situation. Furthermore, the study showed that alienated seniors were spread throughout the county, which is why the coalition chose JCFS centralized location to develop a senior center. By creating a hot spot for seniors at the groups home base, staff would be able to easily integrate its services, such as a food pantry and various therapists and social workers, to address the problems of seniors in need. Sometimes, they have trouble accepting help. The first thing they experience is shame and embarrassment, Ms. Faffer says. These are people who have given help, not asked for help. They are frightened because they know theyre not able to go out and get a job. They become anxious and depressed. We have to often encourage them to use our food pantry. While seniors are enjoying educational programs, discussion groups and a weekly hot lunch at the center, its social workers are guiding many of them toward mental health counseling, emergency financial assistance, geriatric case management and more. The organizations Senior Outreach and Support Services serves clients who are homebound. While seniors come to the center to have a good time and to socialize, clearly they dont leave their problems at the door, Ms. Faffer says. For some people, (the Wednesday lunch) is the only hot meal they will have that week, and for many of these people, its the only meal they share with someone else. The center is open Monday-Friday and offers diverse programming, from movie matinees and art classes to card games and Medicare seminars. At 77 years old, Maureen Benes considers herself very, very active. She discovered the center shortly after it opened and attended the weekly lunch for the first time two days before her husband was admitted to the Douglas T. Jacobson Veterans Home in Port Charlotte.

It was a very, very emotional time for me, she explains. The outpouring of support was just incredible. Ive made some wonderful friends there and it has changed my life. Mrs. Benes describes her life before Mr. Benes diagnoses as wonderful. The two traveled extensively together, almost to the exclusion of others, she says, which made the transition to living alone intimidating. Im by myself. I have no family here, she says, adding, There are many women like myself. She enjoys lunch there every Wednesday and has also gone for movies and tai chi. Veora Little, who cares for her 98-year-old mother-in-law, Sylvia Richter, says the centers resources have made Mrs. Richters move from Canada much easier than it would have been otherwise. Mrs. Little and her husband made the decision to move Mrs. Richter to their home last year after she suffered a series of injuries and maladies from which she had a difficult recovery. Heres this person who is very much a fish out of water, Mrs. Little says. She started going to the senior center and she has already developed relationships that have been lifesaving for her. Mrs. Richters involvement at the center has been a boon for family relationships as well, Mrs. Little adds. Mrs. Richters granddaughter drives her to lunch every week, giving her a chance to visit with her 16-month-old greatgranddaughter in the backseat. That scenario wouldnt exist if she were still in Canada, and her weekly dates at the senior center enable it now that shes in Naples. Its really, for us, a broadening of the generations, Mrs. Little says. Due to the popularity of the senior center, JFCS is in the middle of an expansion to the second floor of its headquarters. By doubling its square footage from 3,000 square feet to 6,000 square feet and moving its administrative offices to the new upstairs unit, the organizations programs, senior center included, will have increased space for programs and activities. Members are charged $15 a year, which covers all activities and services. The center offers scholarships to people who cant afford the membership fee. The center operates solely with money from donors and what it can fundraise in the community. Corporate sponsors also assist with some costs. For example, Wal-Mart provides the food for weekly lunches. The outpouring of support was just incredible. Ive made some wonderful friends there and it has changed my life.

He was told that the surgery at the LASIK Vision Institute in Lake Oswego, Oreg., could not proceed without a signature, and despite hazy vision, he reluctantly relented, but things went badly. The form limits lawsuit damages to a money-back $2,500, but Hoffman demands at least $7,500 (to cover the sofar two additional surgeries elsewhere to correct LVIs alleged errors).War Is hellSome jihadists who have traveled to Syria to join ISIS have complained recently (according to a Radio Free Europe dispatch) that they cannot secure work as martyrs because of discrimination by incumbent fighters. One pro-ISIS cleric, speaking for Chechens, said they are so fed up with the long waiting lists in Syria that they head to Iraq, where the lists are shorter. Said one, Saudis controlling suicide rosters in the Syrian theater wont let anyone in. Their relatives go to the front of the line using (their connections).Sexual assaulters defense league In April, Judge Marc Kelly in Orange County, California, defied a 25-year-minimum statutory sentence for punishing the sexual abuse of a 3-year-old girl by Kevin Rojano cutting the term to 10 years because the man did not intend to harm the girl (except that he became inexplicably aroused when she walked into his garage). There was no violence or callous disregard for (her) well-being, the judge said. The child-abuse sentence of a sports club official in Buenos Aires was reduced in 2014 to little more than three years, it was recently revealed, because, said the judges, the 6-year-old boy had earlier been sexually molested by his father and had already made a precocious (sexual) choice (apparently a reference to homosexuality, according to a May Associated Press dispatch). The continuing crisis America (sometimes called a land of second chances) gave stockbroker Jerry Cicolani Jr., 69 such chances, before he pleaded guilty in May to selling unregistered securities setting up his first overt punishment despite a history of 60-some client complaints made to his then-employer, Merrill Lynch, between 1991 and 2010. The stockbrokers self-regulating arm (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) has finally revoked his license, but issued a statement acknowledging that it needed to improve its monitoring. Awkward: Corey Huddleston, 52, apparently having taken a fancy to a teenage girl in Dickson, Tenn., in May, knocked on her familys front door, according to police, then pushed his way in, asked for cigarettes and beer, touched himself inappropriately, asked about the girl, and then reluctantly departed. However, he merely went to a back window of a darkened bedroom, climbed inside, and fondled a sleeping figure in bed, whom he likely assumed was the girl but it was the girls father, who later confessed that he called the police only after resisting the impulse to kill Huddleston. (Police said Huddlestons rap sheet shows more than 100 charges.)

Naples Bonita Springs Goodwill honors workers for breaking through to independence SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYGoodwill Industries of Southwest Florida recently honored Mike Drouin of Naples and Jennifer Glawe of North Fort Myers with its annual Breakthrough Award for businesses and individuals who have assisted others or themselves in overcoming disabilities or barriers on their path to employment and independence. Mr. Drouin received the Breakthrough Graduate award, and Ms. Glawe received the Breakthrough Achiever of the Year award. A third-generation carpenter, Mr. Drouin worked with his father in the family business. When his father passed away three years ago, however, the business began falling apart. After a struggle with addiction, Mr. Drouin entered Justins Place, a recovery program at St. Matthews House. He wanted to stay in the family trade, but on his own terms. St. Matthews House told him about the SWFL Goodwill MicroEnterprise Institute, an intensive training program for people who want to start their own business. He was already an excellent worker, says Elliott Rittenhouse, Goodwills director of microenterprise. But he didnt know how to set it up as a business. Mr. Drouin completed the MicroEnterprise program and formed Drouins Helping Hands, LLC. He has hired two full-time employees and another parttimer, all of who are in the St. Matthews House recovery-for-life program. He hopes to expand the business to as many as 10 employees and is studying for the Florida state contractors examination, which would allow him to expand into larger projects. When Ms. Glawe was referred to Goodwill by Southwest Florida Works, the then 24-year-old had a limited employment history and was struggling to find a job because of a high unemployment rate and a learning disability. Although she lives independently, she depends on public transportation, another barrier to her self-sufficiency. After working with a Goodwill occupational skills trainer, Ms. Glawe found a good fit when Goodwills janitorial/ floor care manager Brad Ellena needed a day-shift custodian to work at Lynx Services in North Fort Myers. Ms. Glawe would be the only custodian on the shift, working with limited supervision. At first, I wasnt sure how she would handle working independently, but shes done an incredible job, Mr. Ellena says. Its a 72,000-square-foot facility, and she covers every bit of it. Its been more than three years, and Ms. Glawe still gets rave reviews for her work. Everyone in the call center adores her, says Karen McDaniel, facilities supervisor at Lynx. Shes always on task and quick to respond to everything. Really, shes a joy to work with. I like to stay busy, and it makes me happy to have a job, Ms. Glawe says. I can pay bills, be on my own and be more responsible. Other Goodwill Breakthrough Award winners this year are Communication & Data Solutions, Breakthrough Business of the Year; John Talmage, Breakthrough Employer of the Year; and Amanda Lynch, Breakthrough Volunteer of the Year. Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida is committed to serving people with disabilities and disadvantages by providing life-changing opportunities to achieve independence. Revenue generated by Goodwills 30 retail and donation centers throughout the area is used to support these programs. For more information, visit goodwillswfl.org.

Additional data from this study point to the drop in overall crash rates for teen drivers that can be attributed to strong graduated divers licensing legislation as well as other factors including rising gas prices and the economy. In the last 20 years, non-fatal injury crashes and fatal crashes of teen drivers ages 15-19 decreased by 51 percent and 56 percent respectively. In comparison, crashes resulting in non-fatal injuries and fatalities, including but not limited to those involving teen drivers, fell by 25 percent and 17 percent respectively. While great strides have been made to improve the safety of teen drivers over the past 20 years, motor vehicle crashes still remain the leading cause of death for drivers ages 15 to 19, so advocating on behalf of teen driver safety remains a top priority for AAA, Mr. Nasworthy says.

Frantz, MD, FACS One of our Countrys Top 5 Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgeons tea Summertime is turtle time on area beaches BY KATHALYN GAITHERSpecial to Florida WeeklySea turtle nesting season is underway in Florida through October. Guided by instinct, female turtles swim thousands of miles, often to nest on the very same beaches where they hatched. They make their way high on the shore, dig a hole, deposit up to 120 eggs and cover them with sand before lumbering back into the gulf waters. Incubation takes about 60 days. When the young emerge, the hatchlings make their way back into the gulf waters. The last eggs of the season are generally laid in August. Five sea turtle species frequent Florida waters. The majority of nests in the Naples area and the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve are by loggerheads (Caretta caretta). Listed as threatened, the species can weigh up to 400 pounds and grow to 3 feet in length. Loggerheads are the most common of the species found in Florida, with more than 90 percent of the U.S. population nesting in the state. Since 1989, when the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission began nesting surveys, numbers of nests have ranged from just over 28,000 to the highest recorded number in 1989 of nearly 60,000. Last years numbers were slightly higher than 2013, with close to 37,000 nests counted. As of the first week of June this year, 154 nests had been counted in Rookery Bay Reserve, compared to last years count of 103. In Collier County, the number was 413 so far this year, compared to 236 last year. Another species sometimes found in the region is the green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas). This endangered species, named for its green body fat, weighs up to 350 pounds and is a little longer than 3 feet. Nests have been recorded in most Florida coastal counties, though primarily along the lower southeast coast. Green sea turtle nesting numbers have been rising, from a count of 267 in 1990 to a high of more than 25,000 in 2013. For the first time anyone can recall, an endangered leatherback sea turtle (Dermochelys coriacea) nest was recently found in the reserve. The largest of Floridas sea turtles, a leatherback can weigh as much as 1,500 pounds and grow to 6 feet in length. The leathery skin gives them their common name. A relatively small number nest along Floridas coasts, the highest count being 60, with the majority found in Palm Beach County. The most endangered and rarest of the sea turtles is the Kemps Ridley only five nests have been recorded in Florida since 1989. Also, each year a few endangered hawksbill sea turtle nests are documented, mostly along the Keys and up to the Canaveral Seashore. With summer here and the beaches a prime destination for residents and visitors alike, it is important that precautions are taken to ensure the egg-bearing turtles can safely reach a nesting location, that the eggs are protected and that the hatchlings can make it back out to the water to begin their lives. A few simple steps will help to protect these majestic creatures: Keep beaches free of barriers such as beach furniture, toys and sand castles that would deter nesting turtles. Dispose of trash properly. Keep beaches dark, with lights out or shielded by 9 p.m. Keep off dunes. Use designated beach walkovers or boardwalks. Dont let dogs run loose on the beach. Report injured or dead sea turtles or nesting disturbances by calling the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at (888) 404-3922 or by dialing *FWC or #FWC on your mobile phone. Kathalyn Gaither is the internal communications manager for the office of external outreach and public education at the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. Sarah Norris, an intern at the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, discovered this summers first turtle nest in the reserve. Loggerhead hatchlings will begin to emerge from their nests through August.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA20 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 18-24, 2015 Robert S. Tomsick, MD, FAAD Bringing over 35 years of Mohs surgery and dermatology experience to Naples & Marco IslandWhat a difference a time zone makesI recently attended back-to-back meetings the annual conference of the American Hospital Association in Washington, D.C., followed by a gathering in Des Moines, Iowa, of the first 26 communities participating in the Blue Zones Project across the country and was struck by the profound differences. Of course, there were similarities in that speakers and participants were passionate about helping people and understanding that ours is a continuous, never-ending journey of healing. But there were also dramatic differences. AHA was focused on hospitals, from large systems like NCH to tiny safety-net hospitals. Most are clinging to a repair shop mindset, fixated on sustaining financial viability and adapting to the Affordable Care Act. Governmental influences, politics, technology, alternate forms of delivery and other disruptive influences were clearly of top-of-mind concerns. Among our Blue Zones Project partners (Blue Zones are five areas around the world where more people live to be 100 by embracing nine common characteristics) in Des Moines, there was a different, more optimistic mindset focused on prevention of illness, making the easy choice the healthy choice and understanding that its easier to change your environment than to change your mind when it comes to healthy behavior. Success stories were shared and led to animated discussions about objective metrics and sustainability. The overriding goal in Blue Zones Project communities is to decrease the need for health care by focusing on health. Early results are compelling. According to Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, who heads his states Blue Zones Project initiative, cities embracing Blue Zones values have decreased health-care expenditures 9 percent per year for two years in a row. The mayor of Cedar Falls, Iowa, and leaders from Albert Lea, Minn., reported that as a result of the Blue Zones Project, their communities residents have lost weight, increased exercise, changed eating habits, decreased tobacco use, improved spirits and developed a culture of collaboration. Dr. Brian Wansink, author of Mindless Eating and Slim by Design, reported the alarming statistics that children in America drink 53 gallons of soda per year, that 70 percent of Americans are overweight and that 84 percent of medical costs are related to diet. He said we spend more as a nation on potato chips than we do on cancer research a fact I found both scary and sad. The founder of Blue Zones, Dan Buettner, was our keynote speaker in Des Moines. In his book The Blue Zones Solution, he stresses that our eating choices are major influencers of our well-being index. This metric is a good predictor of who will live a long, happy and healthy life. As we shift our efforts from health care to health, the AHA and the Blue Zones Project both have programs and purposes worth embracing. With perseverance and cooperation, Southwest Florida can become the healthiest community in the nation. The journey starts with each of us as individuals. Dr. Allen Weiss is president and CEO of the NCH Healthcare System. allenWEISSallen.email@example.com Heres something to think about when you hop on an exercise bike THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAWho says you cant do two things at once and do them both well? A new University of Florida study challenges the notion that multi-tasking causes one or both activities to suffer. In a study of older adults who completed cognitive tasks while cycling on a stationary bike, UF researchers found that participants cycling speed improved with no cost to their cognitive performance. Results of the study, which was supported by a grant from the National Institute on Aging, were published in the journal PLOS ONE in May. The discovery was a surprise finding for investigators Lori Altmann, an associate professor of speech, language and hearing sciences at the College of Public Health and Health Professions, and Chris Hass, an associate professor of applied physiology and kinesiology in the College of Health and Human Performance. They originally set out to determine the degree to which dualtask performance suffers in patients with Parkinsons disease. To do this, the researchers had a group of patients with Parkinsons and a group of healthy older adults complete a series of increasingly difficult cognitive tests while cycling. Every dual-task study that Im aware of shows when people are doing two things at once they get worse, Ms. Altmann says. Everybody has experienced walking somewhere in a hurry when the person in front of them pulls out a phone, and that person just slows to a crawl. Frankly, thats what we were expecting. Participants cycling speed was about 25 percent faster while doing the easiest cognitive tasks but became slower as the cognitive tasks became more difficult. Yet, the hardest tasks only brought participants back to the speeds at which they were cycling before beginning the cognitive tasks. The findings suggest that combining easier cognitive tasks with physical activity might be a way to get people to exercise more vigorously. The researchers plan to make this a topic for future research. As participants were doing the easy tasks, they were really going to town on the bikes, and they didnt even realize it, Ms. Altmann says. It was as if the cognitive tasks took their minds off the fact that they were pedaling. During the study, 28 participants with Parkinsons disease and 20 healthy older adults completed 12 cognitive tasks while sitting in a quiet room and again while cycling. Tasks ranged in difficulty from saying the word go when a blue star was shown on a projection screen to repeating increasingly long lists of numbers in reverse order of presentation. Their cycling speed was faster while performing the cognitive tasks, with the most improvement during the six easiest cognitive tasks. Cognitive performance while cycling was similar to baseline across all tasks. The reasons for participants multitasking success most likely include multiple factors, the researchers say, but they hypothesize that one explanation could be the cognitive arousal that happens when people anticipate completing a difficult cognitive task. Similarly, exercise increases arousal in regions of the brain that control movement. Arousal increases the release of neurotransmitters that improve speed and efficiency of the brain, particularly the frontal lobes, thus improving performance in motor and cognitive tasks. What arousal does is give you more attention to focus on a task, Ms. Altmann says. When the tasks were really easy, we saw the effect of that attention as people cycled very fast. As the cognitive tasks got harder, they started impinging on the amount of attention available to perform both tasks, so participants didnt cycle quite so fast. Study participants with Parkinsons disease cycled slower overall and didnt speed up as much as the healthy older adults. That could be because arousal that stems from cognitive and physical exercise is dependent on dopamine and other neurotransmitters, which are impaired in people with Parkinsons. Ms. Altmann and Mr. Hass are currently studying whether multi-tasking benefits will extend to other types of exercise, including use of an elliptical trainer. They hope to eventually examine whether pairing mental tasks with exercise can lead to both cognitive and fitness improvements in older adults. HEALTHY LIVING

OFFICES IN NAPLES, FORT MYERS & CAPE CORAL BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickWith their dark-green shells, green legs with yellow stripes and green heads with a red stripe behind the eye, redeared sliders are popular pets for kids whose parents may not want to commit to a dog or cat, and people interested in reptiles. Problem is, not everyone who gets them realizes that they need a large aquatic environment to thrive. They can also spread salmonella, especially to children, who arent always careful about washing their hands after handling the shelled reptiles. Heres what you need to know about getting and living with one. Turtles are interesting pets and can have different personalities, but as companions, they are more like fish than dogs. Be sure you or your child have a true interest in them before acquiring one. To learn about them, talk to a veterinarian who is familiar with reptiles or to a turtle rescue organization (an Internet search will turn up many). Tiny turtles are illegal. The sale of turtles with a carapace the top of the shell smaller than 4 inches was banned in 1975 because the turtles shed salmonella bacteria. Thats a problem when you think about the likelihood of young kids becoming infected after touching the turtles and then putting their fingers or even the turtles themselves into their mouths. You may see tiny turtles for sale at pet stores, flea markets, swap meets or even online, but always choose one that is legal size or larger. Wait to get a turtle until your child is at least 5 years old. Young children are more susceptible to infection. Turtles need an adequate water habitat. A real or artificial pond is best. You can start them out in a large indoor aquarium, but they need more space as they grow older and bigger. They need a place to get out of the water so they can get some sun and completely dry off if they want to, and they need deep enough water so they can swim around, says Scott H. Weldy, DVM, an exotic animal veterinarian at Serrano Animal and Bird Hospital in Lake Forest, Calif. The pond or aquarium must have good filtration so waste products dont build up and make the turtle sick. Females lay eggs with or without the presence of a male. They need to be able to get out of the water and go to an area with dirt or sand where they can dig a hole, lay the eggs and bury them to keep them safe from predators. Unless they live indoors, turtles hibernate in winter. They burrow into the bottom of the pond and wait for spring. Turtles eat a variety of foods. Water hyacinths and elodia are common water plants for ornamental ponds, and turtles are fond of them. They are carnivores, so they also eat worms, fish and crawfish. Avoid keeping your turtle in the same pond with your $300 koi, or you may find that his fins have been nipped or even that he has been eaten if hes on the small side. Commercial pellets are available, but Dr. Weldy recommends feeding a more natural diet and not relying solely on pellets. Use common sense when handling turtles, and teach children how to handle them safely. Salmonella bacteria can live on surfaces for days, so even indirect contact can spread disease. The golden rule? Wash your hands before and after handling your turtle, after cleaning his tank or pond and after feeding him, and keep turtles away from areas where food is prepared. With good care, red-eared sliders can live for 50 to 70 years and can grow to be 10 to 12 inches long. PET TALESTurtle timeAre turtles good pets?

JUNE SALE: Entire store 50% OFFAll month long! THE DIVA DIARIESKeeping vacation envy at bay, one local adventure at a timeIts happening again: vacation envy. Like clockwork, it strikes every year around this time. I blame social media. Facebook is guilty, but Instagram is just as much to blame. (I wont throw any shade at Twitter. None of my friends post there, and I just check occasionally to see what kind of shenanigans Lindsay Lohan and the like are up to.) But Facebook has become a platform to make me feel inferior every summer because Im stuck in Southwest Florida. Seriously, I seem to be the only one left around these parts. Everyone, from a girl I havent seen since we were in eighth grade to my Dad, is posting gorgeous vacation photos that are making me pea-green with envy. Dad went to the Smoky Mountains, and I swear, I could feel the crisp, cool Tennessee air through my computer screen. The girl from eighth grade is posting photos from London, like, every hour. I tend to wonder if shes even enjoying Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, or if shes too preoccupied with uploading her pictures of them to Facebook. Dont get me wrong. I dont begrudge anyone their fabulous vacation. Folks work hard and plan in fact, its been a delight seeing the pictures from one local family I adore as they take a Disney tour of Europe (I love seeing their two young kids smiling next to some of the most amazing wonders of the world). Another dear friend went to Ireland to meet her fiancs family, and I clicked like and commented aaaaawwww on all of her posts. Its just that I want to be part of the How-Cool-Does-My-Vacation-Look? crowd. My husband just started a new job, so far-away travel plans are on the back burner for now. In the meantime, weve been trying to spend our Sundays in some of Southwest Floridas prettiest places. I cant post amazing shots of The Alamo (have fun, Tracy!), Boston (enjoy, James), Utah (that looked like a blast, Andrea!) or Bermuda (happy engagement trip, Glenn and Amy!), but I have plenty of shots of us biking on Sanibel, beaching it at Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park and even kayaking on the Estero River. In fact, heres a photo from that lovely Sunday activity. Its not Buckingham Palace but for now, its days like these that keep my vacation envy at bay. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

B7-8 In a tight Southwest Florida rental market, landlords have raised rents sharply, shocking even some loyal tenants, and making the idea of buying a home look more attractive. Rents jumped by $200 or $300 per month or more in some cases with landlords taking advantage of high demand and recouping losses from lower rents charged in the wake of the Great Recession, property managers said. At this point the existing multifamily or apartment rental units have the ability to increase the rent simply because the demand has allowed for it, said David G. Malt, president and owner of Malt Realty & Development, a rental property management and real estate company in Fort Myers. That has hit many tenants hard, especially when their wages havent kept up with price increases. Rents in South Florida and other places in Florida have exceeded growth in income over the past two years, said Ralph McLaughlin, a housing economist with Trulia, which tracks real estate listings nationwide. Last fall, Maria Sanchezs rent increased from $515 to $700 at Gulfstream Isles Apartments in Fort Myers, and units like hers are now starting at $865. She had been accustomed to past raises in the $30 range. While my salarys staying the same, everything around mes going up, said Ms. Sanchez, who is 53. Its hard. She has rented there for five years and likes the complex itself and the location near work; other family, including her brother Roberto Encarnacion and mother Yolanda, also live in Gulfstream and struggle with higher rents.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 18-24, 2015 MONEY & INVESTINGSometimes, its better to do it yourselfI feel very fortunate to be married to my amazing wife, Robin, especially as I know that there are little things about me that tend to annoy her. For example, she finds it irksome that I am not Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine, who was really her first choice for a spouse. But fortunately for me, Levine ended up marrying Victorias Secret Supermodel Behati Prinsloo so my wife had to settle for her second choice. Another trait that aggravates her is that I am definitely a Do it yourself-er while she likes to hire experts to do things like maintain our pool, paint a room or perform minor surgeries. While this quality has meant that I do not always have a clear pool or matching colored walls or the ability to rotate my head to the left more than 15 degrees, I still love the challenge of tackling lifes puzzles by myself. Mutual funds and exchange traded funds can similarly be divided into two main camps: passive/index funds that are more for the do it yourself investors and actively managed funds where an expert makes investment choices for you. With the former, the fund is constructed to mirror the performance of a certain benchmark index. For example, an index fund may achieve returns that mirror those of the S&P 500 index or the NASDAQ Biotech index. Conversely, an actively managed fund is run by a fund manager who has the ability, within certain pre-set parameters, to pick any security he wants to maximize returns for the funds investors. So which of these types of funds is right for you? It would seem like an actively managed fund would be the logical choice. Investing is a very complex and sophisticated business so wouldnt it make sense to hire an experienced fund manager to make investment choices for you? For people who dont want to be bothered with following the market or those that want someone to blame when their investments loose value, this may be a good choice. However, I would argue that there are a number of factors that make passive funds a better choice, even for amateur investors.As anyone who has ever hired a lawyer, accountant or surgeon can attest, these professionals do not work for free. In fact, the more skilled the professional, the greater amount they can charge. This fact is especially true in the investment world where the elite fund mangers can literally earn billions of dollars a year. And where does this money come from? Thats right, the investors. I would agree that this extra fee would be worth it if fund managers can beat their benchmarks year in and year out. But just like your plastic surgeon is still going to charge you whether you come looking out looking like Kate Upton or Quasimodo, that fund manager is going to charge you in good years and bad. A second headwind against actively management funds is size constraints. Like most times in life, here size matters but it is often a disadvantage to be large. Lets say there is a star hedge fund manager who has developed a model that identifies great investments and starts to outperform the market. In an efficient market, investors would dump tons of money into that fund and the fund manager has to put all of that money to work. If the fund gets big enough, that manager may run out of great investment ideas and have to invest in mediocre investment ideas or keep money in cash. These will drag down the return of the fund. Or, more likely, competitors will see the success this manager is having and will mimic the investment model, thereby driving up the price of the investment targets and decreasing returns for the fund.Finally, an actively management fund is, by definition, active. That means it is consistently buying and selling securities in an attempt to beat its benchmark and maximize return for its investors. In theory, this is great but in practice all of this buying and selling is costly. You have to pay traders, back office personnel to reconcile trades, compliance officers to monitor trades, and taxes every time you sell an investment for a profit. All of these fees add up over time and decrease investor returns.Of course, all of these active fund expenses and fees would be easy to stomach if active fund managers can consistently beat their benchmarks. (For those advanced students out there, this metric is called alpha. So if a funds alpha is 1 percent, that means the fund outperformed its benchmark by 1 percent during that time period.) However, over long periods of time, there are very few managers who can outperform the market. And once an actively managed fund starts to underperform, a type of death spiral occurs. Investors start to withdraw funds, which necessitates the selling of securities to raise cash to pay the departing investors. This selling drives down the price of the investments under management, which makes the fund underperform even more. The continued underperformance leads to more withdrawals of funds and the cycle continues. So with a little homework, I believe that index funds are a great alternative to actively managed funds. This investing style does necessitate following the markets in order to pick which index to invest in, but the fact that you are reading this column demonstrates that you have an interest in financial matters and probably know more than you realize. We all can be our own investing superstar. So take that, Adam Levine. Now if I could only carry a tune.

RENTFrom page 1On her salary, with school loans after going back to be a paralegal, a car payment, and her husband struggling to find steady work, $700 is a limit and $900 seems out of sight. She searched similar complexes and found prices arent much better; although unlike Gulfstream, some have updated accessories such as kitchen countertops and carpets. Gulfstream also recently required all residents to purchase liability insurance, which adds about $10 per month to the bill, telling her most places recently started doing the same. That may be because the owners of the complex, a national company called Waterton Residential that manages more than 19,000 units, get a discount on its own insurance by requiring it, said Alice Vickers, an attorney and director of the nonprofit Florida Alliance for Consumer Protection. The property manager at Gulfstream didnt respond to messages requesting information about how rents and insurance costs are calculated. The big jumps in price arent unique to Gulfstream. Steve Hollister, who runs Twisted Vine Bistro in downtown Fort Myers, has lived at the Oasis condo building with his wife for four years. The rent increased at $50 or $100 increments, then jumped $300 to $2,050 for a threebedroom unit. It seems like the rent has gone up and the amenities are going down every year, he said. Chris Andruskiewicz has lived at the Franklin Arms Court building in downtown Fort Myers the last six years. A few years ago, her rent increased from $650 to $900, then last year to $950 for her one-bedroom with a den. Her lease is up soon. Im scared to find out how much its going to go up, said Ms. Andruskiewicz, a graphic designer at Florida Weekly. Another co-worker, arts writer Nancy Stetson, recently sought a new rental after prices forced her out of an old one. She found that costs for pets have increased as well. Places seem to think that everyone wants a luxury apartment complex, she wrote in an email, such as expensive stainless steel appliances and granite countertops... My priorities were: cost, size, location, safety. She added, People keep saying this is paradise, so you should be willing to pay more. But you cannot pay your rent with sunshine. For rents in the $900 range, Ms. Sanchez says, shell think about buying a house instead. Realtors have jumped on this as a selling point. They could own a $200,000 home for what theyre paying in rent, in some cases, said Ellen C. ODay, managing broker with Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate in Punta Gorda. In South Florida metro areas, Trulia found, buying a home may be up to 55 percent cheaper than renting, a higher percent than anywhere else in the country. That assumes you have excellent credit and stay in the home for at least seven years, among other factors. High rents may be a factor keeping young people from buying a home, said Trulia economist Mr. McLaughlin. In Florida and also places like San Francisco and Los Angeles where rents are high thats an even larger hurdle to save for a down payment, he said.Little relief Rental prices are determined by a comprehensive analysis including operating costs, repairs and market rates, Mr. Malt of Malt Realty explained. The steep increases demanded of some renters are in part a reflection of prices having fallen just as much after the housing crisis in the late 2000s. He believes rents will continue to rise in the next few years. I dont see much change with anticipating some increase, not dramatic, but some increase to rental rates as opposed to decrease or even leveling off, he said. After the housing market crashed and construction came to a halt, the rental market surged in the late 2000s, said Randy Thibaut, owner of Land Solutions, a regional real estate company based in Fort Myers. In addition, young people in their 20s and 30s are holding off on buying a home for various reasons such as going back to school and starting families later or souring on the idea of real estate as an investment. Its clear that a lot of millennials are not buying homes as early or as often, Mr. Thibaut said. Now new apartment construction is starting to catch up with demand. Land Solutions has tracked 15 multi-family projects in Lee and Collier County in different stages of development from late to 2014 to March 2015 totaling more than 3,800 units. But instead of increasing supply and lowering prices it could actually raise rents instead, Mr. Thibaut believes, at least at first, because renters will be covering the cost of new construction. But with housing prices compared to rents becoming favorable, Mr. Thibaut thinks rent prices will start to level off. I dont think youll see price level increases, he said, Because very clearly people can only afford so much. Demand for rentals is still larger than supply, said Michael Depaola, operations manager for Premier Property Management in Naples. Rental rates in the last two to three years have gone up about 30 percent, he said. Mr. Depaola advises that an average moving cost is around $2,000, so if the increase is say up to $150 a month, consider staying at least one more lease cycle. I always tell people if youre happy where you are now, you know whats going on, at least you have a year to prepare, he said. In some cases, tenants interviewed for this story said they were able to strike a deal with landlords to pay what they can afford at least for a while, but thats more likely to be successful with a mom-and-pop rental than a multi-family complex where rent policies are less flexible. The likelihood of being successful if youre dealing with a management company with an onsite manager, its going to be harder to get them to back off a price, said Ms. Vickers, the consumer rights attorney. But theres certainly no harm in trying. And there is no restriction on how much landlords can raise the rent. Obviously when you see rises in prices on residential rentals, that means the market is tight and they know they can charge tenets a lot, she said, adding that Florida is pretty much a landlord state in terms of our laws. They certainly have the upper hand. Rental rates in the last two to three years have gone up about 30 percent.

THE MOTLEY FOOLTo Educate, Amuse & Enrich Ask the Fool Fools School My Dumbest Investment The Motley Fool Take Name That Company Last weeks trivia answer Write to Us! Send questions for Ask the Fool, Dumbest (or Smartest) Investments (up to 100 words), and your Trivia entries to Fool@fool.com or via regular mail c/o this newspaper, attn: The Motley Fool. Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Keeping It RealYour investment returns can be a bit misleading if youre not considering the big picture. Imagine, for example, that you bought $2,500 worth of stock in Farm Dogs Inc. (ticker: BINGO) and sold it a year later for $2,800. Your total return is 12 percent. ($2,800 divided by $2,500 equals 1.12.) But remember inflation, which makes money worth less as prices rise. Watching your investments grow is a bit like seeing them take two steps forward and then one step back. Lets say inflation was 3 percent during the year of your investment. (The long-term annual average inflation is around 3 percent, though it has been much higher or lower at times.) Subtracting 3 percent from your 12 percent return yields an inflation-adjusted return of 9 percent. (Inflation alone can wipe out much of a money market funds return these days.) When you read about a real return, it typically refers to one adjusted for inflation. But lets make it even more real, with taxes. Lets say youre in the 25 percent tax bracket, forking over 25 percent to Uncle Sam and keeping 75 percent. Take your 9 percent inflationadjusted return and multiply it by 0.75, and you get 6.75 percent. Thats your after-tax, inflation-adjusted return. The tax picture is less gruesome for long-term returns for now. Current laws have capital gains on stocks held for more than a year taxed at 15 percent for most people. (High earners face a 20 percent rate.) Clearly, youll likely pay less in taxes if you hold on to your investments for at least a year and a day. Always compare your investments return to a benchmark such as the Standard & Poors 500 index, which measures the performance of 500 of the biggest companies in America. If your portfolio returned 12 percent and the S&P 500 advanced 9 percent during the same period, youre doing well. If you lose to the benchmark repeatedly, you need to reconsider your investment strategy or just earn the S&P 500s return by investing in an S&P 500 index fund or Standard & Poors Depositary Receipts. Facebook FaceplantMy dumbest investment was selling all my shares of Facebook when they were at about $26 apiece back in 2013. That was about a week before the shares surged to $34 and beyond. I sold pretty much because I had become bored with the stock. B.B., Long Gr ove, IllinoisThe Fool Responds: Ouch. Facebooks shares were recently trading near $80, so you missed out on more than tripling your money so far. Its helpful to remember that there are good and bad reasons for selling a stock. Boredom isnt a great reason, because some stocks that will be great long-term performers can temporarily slump. No stock will go up in a straight line. It would have made sense to sell your shares, though, if youd found a different investment that seemed much more promising to you, or if youd lost your faith in Facebooks future. This is why its important to keep up with your holdings progress and developments, so that youll notice when their futures start looking brighter or dimmer. Facebooks stock isnt for the faint of heart, but many analysts and investors are bullish on it, even at recent levels. As of the end of March, the company had more than 1.4 billion monthly active users. With such a huge base, Facebook has a lot of opportunity to sell advertising and to monetize its gobs of accounts in other ways.Income From Realty IncomeIncome-seeking investors should take a look at real estate investment trusts (REITs), as theyre required to pay out at least 90 percent of their income in dividends. A fine REIT to consider is Realty Income Corp. (NYSE: O), specializing in commercial properties and paying out a growing monthly dividend. Realty Income acquires free-standing retail properties all over the United States (it owns more than 4,000), which it leases to high-quality tenants, most of which represent national brands such as Walgreens, FedEx and Dollar General. While its true that retail real estate can be sensitive to recessions and rising interest rates, Realty Incomes strong and diverse group of tenants has kept year-end occupancy high recently around 98 percent and above 96 percent since 1969. Further contributing to its stability is that most of Realty Incomes tenants are on long-term triple-net leases, which have rent increases built in and hold the tenants responsible for variable expenses such as taxes, insurance and maintenance. All Realty Income has to do is collect a rent check. Realty Income has a 20-year track record of outstanding performance as a public company, including 70 consecutive quarterly dividend increases (it recently yielded 4.9 percent) and an exceptional 17.1 percent average annual return. Better still, Realty Income has suffered a pullback, dropping more than 12 percent since February, making this an appealing buying opportunity. Founded in 1916, Im still family-owned, boasting 85 supermarkets in New York, Pennsylv ania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland and Massachusetts, with more to come. Ive been named Americas best supermarket chain many times and have been named one of Fortune magazines 00 Best Companies to Work For for 18 consecutive years. I offer more products than the average supermarket (thousands of them organic), and aim to give my stores the feel of a European open-air market. I employ more than 44,000 people and rake in more than $7 billion annually. Im one of Americas largest privately held companies. Who am I?

R.G., Wilton, ConnecticutALiar loans, which got press coverage during the recent financial crisis, are loans based not on documented necessary information (such as the borrowers income or assets), but mainly on the say-so of the borrower. These low-documentation or no-doc loans tend to be subprime ones, as many borrowers arent always truthful about their financial conditions, resulting in defaults. While these loans have helped many good people secure loans, theyve also been abused by opportunistic lenders and borrowers thus, the term liar loan. Want more information about stocks?

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 18-24, 2015 SANDY DAYS, SALTY NIGHTS A scarlet letter of a different sort Now that Im a homeowner, I seem to be on the mailing list for every decorating catalog on the market. Each day, something new shows up in my mailbox, usually advertising the sort of bourgeois knickknacks I would make fun of in my pre-house life. Now, of course, I scan the catalogs cover-tocover, mooning over the housewares. Sometimes I still mock the odd ways people find to spend their money a $200 copper hose pot? Can you imagine? but I secretly love them. (In fact, I can imagine. And itd look great in my front yard.) What put me in my latest covetous fever is a series of personalized welcome mats featured in a catalog from Frontgate (Outfitting Americas finest homes since 1991). Crafted of coir fiber what is that? and hand stenciled, my favorite mats feature arabesque designs and a single insignia letter in the middle. Ive already picked out the right size and color, but that letter is proving tricky. I didnt start life as a Henderson, so an H doesnt feel quite right. After all, it doesnt really belong to me. Its just on loan for a while. And if I remarry, Henderson will go the way of my maiden name. And then what will I do with my rug? Isnt it strange how when women marry were expected to become someone else, a new person with a different last name? What a formidable concept, to reshape ones identity just because we decide to yoke our life to anothers. I always assumed Id be happy to change my last name when I got married. I never had modernist notions of keeping my maiden name or even bringing in a hyphen. I was born a Chester not very elegant, and to tell you the truth, it rhymed too easily with molester. I never thought Id be sad to see it go. But when it came time to part with that well-worn name, I surprised myself by holding on fiercely. What about all those award certificates from high school? Or my college diploma? Or the bathrobe with my initials stenciled over the heart? All of it: suddenly irrelevant. I delayed going to the DMV, I waited on getting a new Social Security card. My husband, masculine and proud in a traditional way, couldnt understand my hesitation. But Ive worked hard to build a name youd be proud to carry, he said, hurt when I tried to explain my reluctance. But what about my name? Hadnt I worked hard for it? Last names are a fickle business, Im learning, and sometimes I wonder if women wouldnt do better putting all our pride in our first names. That way, at least, we know it wont get lost along the way. So why not just have an A printed on my rug? Because the etiquette-minded part of my brain balks. Its simply not done, it says. But the older I get, the less I care about conventions. And nothing in my life would find a place in an etiquette book, anyway. So Ill have my first initial emblazoned on that rug. At least that way I know it will last.

Over the past several seasons, youve seen him act in a number of plays at the Florida Repertory Theatre. And there he is, a familiar face on your television screen. Its a realization that occurs hundreds or thousands of times throughout the area when local theater patrons recognize an actor theyve seen onstage now appearing in shows on their TVs or computers. Those whove watched the Netflix original series Bloodline starring Sissy Spacek and Sam Shepard have also seen Mr. Powers as a guest at the inn on the series. Locally this past season, Mr. Powers performed in Murder at the Howard Johnsons and Dividing the Estate at Florida Rep and in Theatre Conspiracys production of The Morning After the Night Before the Wedding. His wife, fellow Florida Rep ensemble actress Rachel Burttram, who was also in The Morning After and played his on-stage wife in Dividing the Estate, and was also in Florida Reps production of Split in Three, had a guest role as Shannon Parks assistant in Burn Notice in 2009. Miami-born Kim Ostrenko, who acted in Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike and Murder at the Howard Johnsons at Florida Rep this season, has also had roles in both Burn Notice and Graceland, as well as in From the Earth to the Moon. And Patricia Idlette, who appeared in Florida Reps Dividing the Estate, had recurring roles on Battlestar Galactica, in which she played a politician, and Dead Like Me, in which she played Kiffany, the worldly wise waitress who served the Grim Reapers at the Pancake Haus. She also portrayed Michael Jacksons mother in the 2004 biopic Man in the Mirror: The Michael Jackson Story. Conversely, several faces on television recently have performed on our local stages in seasons past. I was watching an episode of CBS Madame Secretary one Sunday night when they showed a scene with the former Secretary of State Vincent Marsh (SLIGHT SPOILER) who died under mysterious circumstances in a plane crash and had been having an affair with Bebe Neuwirths character, his chief of staff Nadine. I was stunned to see Brian Stokes Mitchell, who toured in Ragtime and has performed numerous times at Artis Naples, including with Harolyn Blackwell at the Thank You Myra Gala in tribute to outgoing CEO and founder Myra Janco Daniels upon her retirement. Oh my gosh, thats Stokes! I said, sitting up from my couch. The Tony Award-winning actor has also performed with the Naples Philharmonic Orchestra. But sometimes, the actor isnt always that easy to pick out. Annie Golden, who played Aphrodite, the goddess of love and Calliope, the muse of heroic poetry in Xanadu, back in April 2010 at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall, is a regular on the Netflix hit, Orange is the New Black, now in its third season. She plays Norma Romano, the woebegone mute woman who works in the kitchen and who, at the end of the first season, (SPOILER) suddenly steps in when Crazy Eyes freezes up during their nativity pageant, sweetly singing a Christmas carol. It was the last person youd expect unless, of course, if you knew of Ms. Goldens musical career: She was in the film version of Hair and was the lead singer of The Shirts, who headlined CBGBs in the late 0s, and has performed in Broadway musicals including the 1977 revival of Hair, On the Town and The Full Monty. SCREENFrom page 1 I happen to be quite possibly the worst lawyer in the history of television, because I always lose, says J. Paul Nicholas, the actor who plays defense attorney Linden Delroy on the TV series Law & Order: Special Victim Unit. Its a recurring role hes played since 2005. Usually I tell my clients not to say anything, and thats when they start talking and confess or give away the plot, and then its over, he says. A couple of times, Ive gotten people out of things, but usually I end up losing. Oftentimes I dont even make it to court; Im seen in the interrogation room, and my client will do something stupid, like confess. The stars of the show give him some good-natured ribbing when he shows up to do his role. Theyll say, Oh hes here again, to tell his clients to shut up. But typically, his clients will blab or break down and confess. Its not his fault: Its in the script. Mr. Nicholas is glad for the work, though its not consistent enough to live on. (There are a handful of other actors who also play public defenders.) Hes also appeared on Law & Order: Criminal Intent as Naseer Hadim in 2006 and on the original Law & Order in two roles: as Leon and as Ballistic Technician Harland during the 2008-09 season. The franchise is so popular with its current shows as well as episodes in syndication, that its been said an episode of L&O is always playing somewhere in the world, no matter what the time. The original show, which ran for 20 seasons from 1990-2010, is said to be the longest-running series on television. There were four television spin-offs, all of which deal with the criminal justice system. They include two short-lived shows, Law & Order: Trial By Jury and Law & Order: L.A., as well as the above mentioned L&O: Criminal Intent (which ended in 2011) and the still-running L&O: SVU. There are also foreign adaptations of L&O in France, Russia and the UK. The Law & Order franchise is a very good thing for actors, providing at least a dozen jobs or more per episode for actors, in addition to the regular casts. Roles include the murder victim, the person who discovers the corpse, police officers, friends, family members, neighbors and co-workers of the victim. Mr. Nicholas estimates that half the actors he knows have been on one iteration or another of L&O. Actually, its a little bit of a running joke with my actor friends, (wholl say) Im not getting anywhere in this city, because I havent been on Law & Order yet, or, There must be something wrong with me, I havent been on Law & Order yet. Appearing on the TV show is a very nice springboard, he says, a very nice thing to have on your resume. And if one of the executive directors happens to be directing an episode and has also cast you, thats even better. Other casting directors are impressed by that, he says. Theyll take a more serious look at you and it could help you get roles.Very different art formsLocal audiences had the opportunity to see Mr. Nicholas perform on stage this spring in The Butcher at Gulfshore Playhouse in Naples. He portrayed a Muslim butcher who has a life-altering event happen in his butcher shop. Stage and television are very different art forms with different thrill levels, he says. Stage is more of a thrill, because its live and youre doing it for 90 minutes to two hours, he says. With film, he explains, youre doing little shots here and there out of sequence, and the thrill comes from trying to replicate the same thing from scene to scene, and to keep straight what your character knows at any given time and what hes thinking. Theyre very different art forms, he says. Its hard to say which one I prefer. But if you forced me to pick one, Id say stage. Its not unusual to see a Law & Order reference in an actors bio in a play program. This past season had numerous ones, including actor James Vincent Meredith, who plays a Ugandan father in the touring production of The Book of Mormon, which was presented at ArtisNaples and at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in January. He estimates hes one of three or four actors in the cast whove acted in a L&O episode. Even though it was shot five years ago, he still recalls his time on an episode of L&O: SVU. Hed been acting in Tracy Letts Broadway play Stolen Donuts in the fall and winter of 2009, which is how the Chicago-based actor, an ensemble member of the Steppenwolf Theater company, happened to be in New York City at the time. The episode was called Wannabe, and I played a kids counselor who was helping some kids paint a wall, he says. Ice-T and his partner (Richard) Belzer came over and asked me some questions. It was a one scene-er, in and out. And what I remember being so crazy was that Ice-Ts rap career had been over, but he still had a large number of fans. We were in the middle of Chinatown, I think it was, doing the scene in Manhattan, and there were still a lot of people on the side, (watching.) Theyd caught wind that Ice-T was going to be there. He has the craziest fan base! Though known for his theater performances, Mr. Meredith has been on other TV shows, including ER, and played Alderman Ross in the Starz cable series Boss, acting in eight episodes over the first and second seasons.

Open Road. 262 pages. Trade paperback, $14.99.Jonathon Kings Max Freeman Mystery series is one of my favorites. With a well-developed lead character, fascinating plot ideas, authoritative details on police work and the court system and an authentic representation of two Floridas (the Palm Beach area and the Everglades), Maxs seventh outing met my high expectations, along the way providing deep insights into stressed characters dealing with critical situations. Diane Manchester, 43, is a U.S. district judge in charge of the extradition hearing of a big-time criminal, a Colombian drug lord named Juan Manuel Escalante. As a weary Diane, eight months pregnant, announces a break for lunch, Escalante speaks out to her. His seemingly sarcastic concern for her condition could easily be taken as a threat. Soon after leaving the courthouse, the judge, who is the wife of super-lawyer and highly successful financial guru Billy Manchester, is abducted. Her husbands go-to guy for investigations is Max Freeman, who is also Billys best friend. Billys clout allows him access to all kinds of information sources, and he quickly takes advantage of his connections to begin the hunt for Dianes captors and to seek out their possible motives. The usual motive, a fat ransom, does not seem to be in play. Mr. King builds his narrative through several points of view. Maxs viewpoint is paramount; readers will gratefully follow him as he tracks and interprets the accumulating clues. Many chapters explore Dianes thoughts and emotions as she processes her situation and worries about the outc ome of her pregnancy. Her abductors treat her rather roughly, binding her hands behind her and covering her head so she cannot see. Her breathing is somewhat restricted. For a long time, no one speaks to her. The space in which is confined is a place of silence. Working hard to stay as calm as possible, she forces herself to be alert to motion, to environment, to the needs of her unborn child. A woman who is used to controlling her destiny, she strives to balance realism and hope in a situation she cannot understand. The author is in full command of this character, electrifying readers who are brought so close to what Diane is going through. The team that is holding Diane is headed by a huge Native American, a man of enormous strength and no compassion. He is known as Geronimo, and his underlings live in fear of him. Danny and Rae are a young couple who have, for the promise of big money, tied themselves to this kidnapping venture. The two of them, but Rae in particular, have Diana in their charge. Slowly but surely, Diana works to build the kind of relationship with her captors that will give her clues regarding her whereabouts, the reason for her abduction and the ultimate plan. She is dependent on Rae for nourishment and bathroom visits. As time passes, Dianes discomfort grows. She begins to have contractions and anticipates going into labor. How can she save herself and her child? The final perspective belongs to Rae. This woman, who has nothing in common with Diane, is brilliantly portrayed. Suspicious, intelligent and challenged by the situation, she resents what she understands to be Dianes life of social and economic privilege. More and more, she suspects that Danny has led them into a no-win situation: one in which they will finally be expendable. The kidnappers relocate Diane to private quarters in the Everglades. Once Max is on the scent, we follow his careful, competent steps to that location. A man who knows the unique beauty and treacherous nature of this habitat well, he is well equipped for this particular assignment. Government agents are also in pursuit, and yet no one has figured out why Diane has been kidnapped. Max is defined not only by his role in this assignment and his long association with Billy, but also by the tender relationship with his one-legged girlfriend, Sherry Richards, a police detective recently returned to work after recovering from her near-devastating injury. Filled with uncertainties and with characters whose racing heartbeats will be echoed by your own, Dont Lose Her is the author in top form. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. j a M g m c philJASONpkjason@comcast.net KING

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 18-24, 2015 ARTS COMMENTARY Are these Underpants returnable?Underpants come in all styles and colors. Some are plain and utilitarian, others racy and fun. The Underpants, playing at the Laboratory Theater of Florida, falls somewhere in the middle, though more toward the former than the latter. This Steve Martin adaptation of a 1910 Carl Sternheim farce is about an errant pair of bloomers. When Louise (Dena Galyean) goes to a parade to see the king pass by, she stands on tiptoe to get a better view and her drawers drop. Her husband, government bureaucrat Theo (Mike Dinko), is appalled. All he cares about is his reputation, and how the incident might reflect poorly on him. But the men at the parade who witnessed the incident are captivated. Driven by their lust, they show up at Louise and Theos house to rent a spare room, just so they can get close to Louise and possibly have their way with her. Louise is not the slut her husband accuses her of being, but their nosey upstairs neighbor, Gertrude (Angie Koch), persuades her to play the field. Gertrude is a troublemaker, an instigator. There are better men out there, she tells Louise, and proceeds to coach her in the ways of men and sew her a series of increasingly more revealing underpants with which to seduce them. Ms. Koch is girlish and impish in the role, but she couldve easily played her character even bigger. The same could be said for almost everyone else in the cast. Sadly, this production is remarkably staid for a farce. That could be partly because this is a community theater and these are amateur actors, and also partly due to director Rick Sebastians interpretation of the play. He chose to use a conventional set and period clothing; theres nothing absurd or whimsical about either. Comedy, especially this particular brand of over-the-top farce, can be extremely difficult to play. The tone should be light, like a souffl, but this production is leaden. Part of it is due to Mr. Dinkos strong performance. His Theo is so overbearing, so pedantic and authoritarian, that he steamrolls over the other characters. I was so looking forward to this play. I saw a production of it 12 years ago and still remember it fondly. It was great fun: crazy, absurd and uproariously funny. I re-read the play recently, and it was hysterical to even just read it on the page. But somehow, that wild humor has not translated to the Lab Theater stage. It comes across like a straight play (albeit a strange one) with some funny lines here and there. When Florida Weekly took photos of the cast a couple weeks ago, the images were downright zany. But that zany-ness is missing onstage. Theatergoers may well wonder whats so wild and crazy about this play, other than the fact that its about underpants. Mr. Sebastian does play some fun music before the show and during intermission, including a bouncy oom-pah tune and (you will hate him for this, because it will stick in your head forever) the music to The Chicken Dance. Ms. Galyean does a good job as Louise, a woman who, initially nave, comes into her own. Andy Savoie plays Versati, a poet (though he sometimes calls himself Versace), and Marcos Martins is Cohen, a hypochondriac barber who tries to hide the fact that hes Jewish. Rounding out this trio of unsuitable suitors is Stephen Hooper as Klingelhoff, who is, well just an odd duck. Mr. Hooper is the only one who seems to understand the tenor of the play, and his wackiness is most welcomed. Theo is a dolt, a drone who doesnt read, an unimaginative man who thrives on order and regularity and bureaucracy. Hes annoyingly paternalistic, referring to Louise as a little housewife. He makes all the major decisions in the household, has affairs and, by his own admittance, takes only a minute to make love. When he makes a pass at Gertrude, she warns him, You might not like me. Im 42. Rivers still flow from rusty pipes, he tells her. Thats the most romantic thing anyones ever said to me, she replies. I want to sleep with you. It wont take a minute, he coaxes, as if that will seal the deal. Steve Martins adaptation of Mr. Sternheims play is full of witty, snappy dialogue. Reviews of the original production have called it hilarious and bawdy, loose, gleefully silly and light on its feet, irreverent and quite engaging. Time Out New York magazine said, Bad puns, goofy pratfalls and an endless stream of hilariously daffy lines creates a momentum that rolls Perhaps if the cast delivered the lines with a little less inhibition and at a faster pace, this production would feel lighter and crazier. When performed well, The Underpants is side-achingly hilarious. Its not only funny, its a clever commentary about marriage and relationships between the genders. Louise keeps a bird in a cage in her kitchen; she is like that caged bird. Her husband sees her as a pretty thing to keep entrapped for his own pleasure and entertainment. Mr. Sebastian seems to have a different interpretation of the play, though, especially the ending. He seems to view Theo as not that bad a guy, a man who just wants to protect his wife. He sees it as a play about misunderstanding and miscommunication, while others see it as a woman discovering herself, her own mind and wishes. Theo, frankly, doesnt have a clue. Not even by the end of the play. And according to the script, Louise is in full control of herself. But this production presents it differently. Mr. Sternheims plays were considered subversive; they were even banned by the Nazis. But you couldnt tell by this production. The Underpants is a play that can be as bold and brazen as a Calvin Klein underpants billboard or a Victoria Secret commercial. What the Lab Theater delivers, however, is a pair of plain, white briefs. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com The Underpants>> When: Through June 27 >> Where: The Laboratory Theater of Florida, 1634 Woodford Ave., Fort Myers >> Cost: $22 online, $25 at the door (students $10 online, $12 at the door) >> Info: 218-0481 or laboratorytheater orida. com TOM HALL / COURTESY PHOTOSAngie Koch watches as Dena Galyean gets measured for underpants by Andy Savoie.

CONTRACT BRIDGEThe hidden power of a passBY STEVE BECKEROne of the hardest words in bridge to say, it seems, is pass. There is no way of knowing how many thousands of points are lost, hand after hand, as a result of the injudicious use of bids other than pass when the latter action is called for. Consider this deal, from a tournament, where West f ailed to utter the magic word. The bidding began when East, taking advantage of the favorable vulnerability, opened with four spades. This posed a difficult problem for South. Certainly he had to bid something with his fine hand, but the question of what to bid was not easy to answer. He didn't need much from his partner to make a slam, but he was afraid to jump to six hearts or six diamonds for fear he might choose the wrong suit. So he overcalled with five hearts, hoping he'd get a chance to name diamonds later. This turned out to be the case when West bid five spades, and South then properly overrode his partner's double to bid six diamonds. West passed, and North, seeking the maximum score, corrected to six hearts. When this rolled around to West, he chose to double instead of pass. West led the ace of clubs and continued with the queen. Declarer ruffed and led a low heart. After West played low, South, mindful of the double, finessed the eight, correctly deciding that West had all five missing trumps. The rest was easy, and South made the slam after drawing trumps. It is possible that declarer would have finessed the eight anyway, but the double drew a diagram for South that could hardly be misread. West should have been satisfied with the sixheart contract and maintained a stoic silence.

Its an amusing bit of showbiz buffoonery, much more accessible to fans of the show than newbies like myself. Rated R.Insidious: Chapter 3 (Dermot Mulroney, Stefanie Scott, Lin Shaye) Psychic Elise (Ms. Shaye) helps a father (Mr. Mulroney) exorcise a demon from his daughter (Ms. Scott). The story is poorly structured and the scares lack imagination. And why does this franchise need a prequel? Rated PG-13.Aloha (Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams) A military contractor (Mr. Cooper) deals with government bureaucracy and two love interests (Ms. Stone and Ms. McAdams) in this woefully lost drama from writer/director Cameron Crowe (Jerry Maguire). The writing is weak, its not funny, and its a total bore. When will Mr. Crowe be good again? Rated PG-13.Ill See You In My Dreams (Blythe Danner, Sam Elliott, Malin Akerman) Widower Carol (Ms. Danner) is content on her own, but finds happiness when she spends quality time with fellow retiree Bill (Mr. Elliott). Theres something to be said for the simplicity of a good, touching story which is what this is. Its intended for an older crowd but is certainly a movie we can all learn from. Rated PG-13.Tomorrowland 1/2(George Clooney, Britt Robertson, Hugh Laurie) Young genius Casey (Ms. Robertson) and a disgraced inventor (Mr. Clooney) travel to an alternate dimension to try to save the world. The story is a convoluted mess, and the visual effects are far from impressive. What a disappointment. Rated PG.Good Kill 1/2(Ethan Hawke, January Jones, Bruce Greenwood) An Air Force pilot (Mr. Hawke) now remotely flies drones into enemy territory, but struggles balancing family life with the morality of his work. Mr. Hawke gives a strong performance and its a new part of war being explored, but its not always compelling. Rated R.Pitch Perfect 2 (Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow) The Barden Bellas must win the world championships of a cappella or theyll have to disband. It isnt better than its 2012 predecessor, and it doesnt have to be. All it has to do is satisfy the throngs of fans who loved the original and are eagerly coming back for more of the same. Thankfully, it delivers. Rated PG-13.

LATEST FILMSJurassic WorldIs it worth $10? NoNobodys impressed by a dinosaur anymore, says operations manager Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) in the early moments of Jurassic World, and how true it is for moviegoers as well: Visual effects are leaps and bounds beyond what they were in 1993 when Jurassic Park was a box office smash, and that films two ho-hum sequels prompted fans to grow weary of the Jurassic world. So surely executive producer Steven Spielberg and director Colin Trevorrow have something great in store for us with this fourth outing, right? The franchise shouldve remained extinct. Jurassic World is a big, humorless, drab movie, saved only by an inspired finale that at least allows you to leave the theater having enjoyed something. Set in Isla Nublar in Costa Rica, the same location as Jurassic Park, the park has reopened as a futuristic amusement center optimized for profitability and access to the dinosaurs. Theres a petting zoo, T-Rex observatory, aquarium, aviary, on-site hotel and, of course, the one thing it couldnt possibly function without: a Starbucks. The problem is operating expenses are too high, so every few years scientists have to create something new to keep their 21,000 daily visitors coming back. To the tune of $26 million, meet the 50-foot-tall Indominus Rex. A genetically created hybrid of various creatures thats bigger and meaner than any dinosaur known to have existed, shes supremely intelligent and kills for sport. Shes an enemy to and the worst nightmare of any living being on the island. When she escapes, the insufferable humans must argue over how to stop her. Claire is at first overly concerned with company profits before she wises up and remembers her sister (Judy Greer) is counting on her to take care of her two nephews (Ty Simpkins and Nick Robinson) as they visit the park. To his credit the parks owner, Simon (Irrfan Khan), tries to do the right thing, but its too late to reverse his critical mistakes. Owen (Chris Pratt) and his assistant, Brady (Omar Sy), work with Velociraptors and have developed a bit of a rapport with the prehistoric creatures, which the head of security (Vincent DOnofrio) believes can be an asset in hunting the Indominus. Owen disagrees. Emphatically. You know a movies bad when the even the endearing Chris Pratt (Parks & Rec, Guardians of the Galaxy) is so stifled he cant crack a joke for some comic relief. The visual effects and scale of the production reflect enormous ambition, so the lack of success certainly isnt due to limited vision. The execution, however, is faulty. There are long stretches in which nothing dynamic happens, and the action scenes are pretty standard and much like what weve seen from this franchise before. Understand: The first Jurassic Park worked because it had ingenuity and a wow factor that crackled with excitement every time a dinosaur was on screen. But as Claire readily admits in the aforementioned quote and the filmmakers certainly know as well dinosaurs alone arent enough, and its these extra elements in Jurassic World that underwhelm. Simply put, theres nothing to wow at here. And we go to movies like these to do nothing but wow. >> Jimmy Fallon has a cameo on a park monitor; his Tonight Show airs on NBC, and the movie was made by Universal Pictures, both of which are owned by Comcast. dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC18 WEEK OF JUNE 18-24, 2015 KOVEL: ANTIQUESAn antique to keep your antiques in BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELCollecting is not a new hobby there were cavemen and even birds that saw unusual or attractive items and took them home to save. Ancient Romans collected coins and pottery and one Emperor had a bedroom filled with treasures from Greece. By the time of the Renaissance, there were wonder cabinets, and the rich and the royal had galleries to display their paintings and statuary. Collectors from every century have had problems of storage, display and inventory records. During the 18th century, European and American collectibles like coins, mineral specimens and small pieces of pottery and glass were displayed in a large piece of wooden furniture, usually a combination bookcase and cabinet. It had both shelves and special shallow drawers, divided into small sections. A southern auction house recently sold a Federal carved mahogany piece of antique furniture with shelves in the top section, and a writing desk over specimen drawers below. Doors with panes of glass cover the upper shelves and wooden doors hide the lower sections storage. It was made in Philadelphia in 1807. The piece is 93 inches high, so it can just fit under the average 8-foothigh ceiling if there is no carpet on the floor. Estimated at $3,000 to $5,000, it sold for $5,490. Q: Several years ago, I inherited a Royal Doulton jug called The Cavalier. There is a large letter A next to the Royal Doulton mark on the bottom. What does that mean? A: From 1940 to 1960, Royal Doulton made The Cavalier, a character jug based on a painting called The Laughing Cavalier by Frans Hals. More than one version was made. In the first version, the cavalier has a goatee. It was made in the large 7-inch size from 1940 to 1950, and it is rare. A second version, without A collector will enjoy this bookcase-cabinet because it has several sizes of sections for antiques and collectibles. Neal Auction Co. of New Orleans sold it for $5,490.

The A is a factory mark used betw een 1939 and 1955 According to a former employee, it was used to identify pieces that were made for export. The version without goatee sells for $12 to $20. The value of the rarer version with a goatee is estimated at $1,200 to $4,000. Q: Is there any formula that will restore clarity to 30-year-old crystal stemware that has become cloudy? A: Your water may be leaving a film that can be removed by using water softener. But the glasses are probably cloudy because hot water and detergents in the dishwasher slightly damage the polish on the glass and give the stemware the cloudy appearance. It is almost impossible to restore the original shine, although some glassware can be polished inside and out. There is a trick that covers the problem of cloudy glass decanters and other glassware with lids or stoppers that is not being used to serve food. Pour some clear baby oil into the decanter, swish it around to cover the entire inside with a thin layer of oil. Pour out any excess and then close the bottle. It will sparkle as if it is new. But this treatment is a coverup, not a cure, and about once a year it has to be repeated. Watch out for this trick when you buy glass. There is no permanent cure for cloudy glass. Q: I have a stereopticon marked Patd September 28, 1897. I also have 21 picture cards that go with it, including The President & Mrs. McKinley, Twentieth Century Series. The series includes several pictures taken in 1899. Id like to know the value of these items.A: The Whiting View Co. of Cincinnati published a series of stereo cards called The Twentieth Century Series around 1901. Stereo cards were made for viewing in stereoscopes. People often confuse stereoscopes with stereopticons. Stereopticons, sometimes called magic lanterns, were first made about 1850. A stereopticon has two lenses and uses glass slides to project images. A stereoscope is a viewer for stereo cards that uses two images to produce a single three-dimensional picture. If you are viewing the image cards through your device, you have a stereoscope. Stereoscopes were first made in 1838. Stereo cards were usually purchased by the set. A stereoscope with the patent date of September 28, 1897, and five cards sold online for $125. Stereo cards alone sell for $10 to $25, depending on the subject. Your card set was popular, and many sets still exist.Tip: Dont eat off antique pewter plates. Some have a high lead content, and continuous use and scratches on the surface releases bits of poisonous lead. Also, avoid using pewter for food preparation. New pewter usually is safe, but be sure to check on the lead content. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column.

Can you tell me when that will be, and give me a little hint of what will happen this season? Michael D., via emailA: The critically acclaimed Western period drama returns to AMC for its fifth and final season July 18, when it will begin airing the first half of the 14-episode season. Its midseason finale will air Aug. 29, with the second half picking up in 2016. I spoke with cast newcomer Byron Mann about this final season, and he told me a little bit of what fans can expect. This season is about the Chinese workers on the railroad and all the stories that come out of it. My character is Chang, and he is the power broker. He controls all of the workers. He gets into all of these different conflicts and vying of power with Cullen Bohannan, who is played by Anson Mount, and with all the other railroad owners. He is a very complex and interesting character. Byron is excited for viewers to see the Chinese influence and labor that went into making America's cross-country railroad system. The railroad in America certainly the line from San Francisco out to the east was built primarily by the Chinese workers and the Irish workers. There were 15,000 Chinese workers building this line. Their stories have never been told on television or in movies. What I can tell you is that there will be a bitter and very complex rivalry between Chang and Cullen Bohannan, which will develop and escalate throughout the season. Q: I was floored by the season finale of Outlander, and I know there will be a wait to see season two. Do you have any idea when that will be? Please tell me we won't have to suffer another midseason four-month hiatus. Gigi R., Lancaster, Pa.A: Showrunner Ronald D. Moore has revealed that the second season, which will premiere in 2016, will have a straight run of all season-two episodes. There will be at least 13 episodes, because the powers that be might decide it needs more time to cover the second book, Dragonfly in Amber, which season two will be based on. Fans are speculating that Outlander could premiere April 16, 2016, which just so happens to be the 270th anniversary of the Battle of Culloden. Readers: Here is the list of CW shows that have been renewed and canceled, starting with the renewed shows: The 100, America's Next Top Model, Arrow, Beauty and the Beast, The Flash, iZombie, Jane the Virgin, The Originals, Reign, Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries. Hart of Dixie and The Messengers either have ended their run or have been canceled. Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

How can I permanently reduce signs of cellulite? NaplesMedSpa.com 239.228.7491 At Naples Laser and MedSpa, we offer a painless and relaxing treatment to help you target and eliminate fat cells in trouble spots. This treatment is painless and requires no downtime for healing and recovery, no injections or other interventions in trouble spots, no anesthesia or antibiotics. Patients may see results after one treatment, but up to six treatments can be recommended depending on the patients needs. The science behind the technology of our treatment is the targeting of adipose (fat cells). As we target the treatment area, ultrasonic vibrations heat up the fat cells, creating a bubble that eventually bursts. The released fatty acids and toxins are then evacuated through the lymphatic system. The body naturally metabolizes these compounds into either energy or waste.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 18-24, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C27 CUISINE NEWSLocal caterers create a tasty niche with paella parties BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comParty hosts who are stumped on what to feed their guests this summer might want to consider one of the paella chefs that have been making the rounds locally. Rather than quarantining themselves in a kitchen or poring over a catering menu with the aim to find something to appeal to everyone, hosts can hire one of these rice professionals to arrive at the party site and prepare fresh paella, on the spot, for gatherings of any size. There are a few other benefits besides having what is essentially a fancy one-pot meal for a crowd: Its surprisingly affordable, and its fun to watch the chefs create their Latin masterpieces en plein aire. Fire and Rice started four years ago as Chef Paul Schmidgalls solution to finding a low-cost, high-impact gig at the height of the recession. I had to find something affordable that feed the masses, he says the 25-year veteran of the food industry. Customers of Fire and Rice can select a few different concoctions to feed anywhere from 15 to 500 people. It works, Chef Schmidgall says about his concept. Its just grown exponentially ever since. His creations remain authentically Spanish and affordable, topping out at $27.50 per person. Those who prefer a traditional Valencian paella can opt for a yellow rice mixture that contains a variety of vegetables, chorizo, shellfish and chicken. Or you can kick it up a notch with one of the seafood dishes that contain practically all the fruits of the sea clams, mussels, shrimp, scallops, fish and more. Packages that include a side salad, rolls and dessert are offered, as are tapas items such as aged manchego with quince paste, roasted dates with pineapple and bacon and Spanish tortillas. Chef Schmidgall enjoys catering to a variety of informal occasions, from backyard gatherings to boat parties and condo association meetings. He advises potential clients to book weekends as far in advance as possible and weekday events at least seven days in advance. For more information about Fire and Rice, call 269-8857 or visit fireandrice.us. Chef Ken Gluckman started his Paella Party Catering in Naples about 10 years ago and has been known to take his one-man show on the road to places including Chicago and Delray Beach. His basic dish, Paella de la Casa, contains chicken thighs, smoked paprika, sofrito (tomatoes, onions, garlic and parsley), saffron, artichokes and shrimp, but Chef Gluckman is happy to create customized mixtures with ingredients ranging from different vegetables and shellfish to Serrano ham, snails, rabbit, squid ink and venison. Cooking paella is kind of like creating a painting, he says. You start with an empty pan and apply all the different ingredients. Its a creative dish. Paella Party Catering prices start at $15 per person, and Chef Gluckman can serve anywhere from 15 to hundreds of guests. For more information, call 2483500 or by visit paella-party.com. COURTESY PHOTOSChef Paul Schmidgall started Fire and Rice four years ago and says his paella parties, poolside and elsewhere, have been hot ever since. Al fresco paella preparation can double as entertainment for party guests. Here, Chef Ken Gluckman of Paella Party Catering prepares his specialty at a backyard gathering.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 18-24, 2015 C29 THE DISH The Dish: Bills Steak Salad The Price: $13 The Place: Bills Steak & Seafood Restaurant, 4221 Tamiami Trail E., 4555111 The Hours: 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day The Full Menu: seafoodrestaurantnaples.com The Details: When it comes to ordering steak or seafood, I often have a hard time deciding especially when the two constitute the main part of the name of a particular dining establishment. The lunch menu at Bills Steak & Seafood Restaurant didnt make things any easier for me; I wanted to try pretty much everything from the clam roll to Bills Grilled Cheese (with bacon, tomato and avocado yum) to the grilled rib eye sandwich. I finally settled on Bills Steak Salad, a plateful of mixed greens heaped with steak tips, julienned carrots, cucumbers, toasted pecans, mandarin orange segments, blue cheese crumbles and choice of dressing (I had blue cheese). One More Thing: My lunch companion ordered Chef Bills New Seafood Stir-Fry Special. For $12, it was an astonishingly generous serving of lobster, shrimp and scallops in a lemony buerre blanc sauce served over rice. While a few pieces of lettuce was all that remained on my plate, my friend left with a doggy bag containing more than enough for his dinner. Cindy Pierce firstname.lastname@example.org

VINOAsk the Wine WhispererAt the end of every article, I usually write Sample widely. Write to me. While I have no way of knowing how widely my Florida Weekly readers sample (hope you do), some people actually do write. Most of the queries pertain to wine appreciation or specific winegrowing regions, and theyre pretty interesting. Ill attempt to answer some of your questions in this public forum from time to time. If you have questions or puzzlements about wines, regions, labels, whatever, contact me and Ill try to help. Q: How important is the vintage of a wine? Barry C., Cape CoralA: Vintage, the year shown on the bottle of most fine wines, reflects the year in which the grapes were picked. This is important because wine grapes are an agricultural product, and weather conditions can have a significant effect on the wine. The more expensive the wine, the more important the vintage. Everyday wines (in the $10-$15 range) are made from grapes that come from several vineyards over a wide area. (For example, if the label on a bottle says California, the grapes can come from anywhere in the state). If the harvest is not so good in one place during a particular year, the producer will find better fruit somewhere else. But if youre buying wine from very specific regions or vineyards, its worth looking up the quality of that years harvest. Q: What is an appellation? Sonia R., EsteroA: An appellation is a legally designated wine-growing region. They are fairly large geographical areas divided into subappellations of various sizes For example, if a bottle label says Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, the grapes can come from anywhere in that area. But Napa is divided into subregions such as Yountville, Rutherford, Diamond Mountain, etc. And those may be further sectioned off into single vineyards or even blocks within vineyards. A label might say, Napa Valley Diamond Mountain Miss Lils Vineyard. The more specific a wine is to a place, the finer and more expensive its likely to be. Q: Does the shape of a wine glass really make a difference? Lou B., Bonita SpringsA: Absolutely. Wine glasses are made in various shapes to accomplish certain purposes. The deep broad bowl of a red wine glass, for instance, allows us to swirl the wine sufficiently to release the flavor and aroma components. They narrow toward the top to channel those aromas to the nose. And, since we taste flavors (sweet, salt, sour and bitter) at different places on our tongues, different shapes direct what we drink to the right places. A white wine glass may be a bit taller and narrower, because of the more delicate nature of the flavors and aromas. Q: Why is wine stored in oak barrels? Robert A., Fort MyersA: Oak is to wine what spices and seasoning are to food. When winemakers decide to ferment or store wine in oak barrels, theyre adding several important flavors and characteristics to the juice. People write whole books on what oak does to wine, but basically the flavors that the juice soaks up from the barrel are determined by where the wood comes from (France and America supply most of the barrels used in winemaking), and how the barrels are toasted on the inside. Wine barrels are made over flame, because heat makes the wood staves flexible so they can be bent into shape. Winemakers order barrels with light to heavy toast, depending on the flavors they want to extract. And then, of course, theres the decision of how long to leave the wine in barrels. Some Spanish wines stay in barrels for decades before theyre released. Sample widely. Send your questions to me at email@example.com. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

We dont just have summer thunderstorms, we have deluges and even hurricanes. And while folks in the rest of the country chase deer from their tender summer berries and squash, we battle squirrels that want to contaminate our bumper crop of mangos. Our northern neighbors keep the country steadily supplied with strawberries, cucumbers and tomatoes through summer, and we get to enjoy exotic backyard fruits that are less in demand elsewhere. Mangos are a perennial favorite, but what about lychees? Jackfruit? Sapodillas? Mamey? Avocados? They can be difficult to find in grocery stores, but that doesnt mean the rest of us dont have kitchen counters piled high with ripening fruit picked off our own trees. Andrea Grace, the adult education coordinator at Naples Botanical Garden, has a soft spot for tropical fruit because it gives Floridians a horticultural advantage. Tropical fruits in summer, vegetables in winter we can have fresh produce all the time, Ms. Grace says. Growing your own fruit, however, isnt as easy as just plugging in a tree from a local home store, though they actually have some really great varieties these days, says NBG horticulturist Brian Galligan. Its important to research which trees will satisfy all your desires, he adds, because its easy to go wrong when so many varieties come from different geographical regions. Often, its a matter of taste. The last thing you want to do is buy a cultivar without doing research on it, Mr. Galligan says. Talk to the grower, read the ticket and do some research. For example, mangos from Southeast Asia are often intended to be eaten green or to add tartness to savory dishes. The flavor profile of a Thai variety of fruit and its ripening period can be quite different from what gardeners in Florida are seeking. Another popular fruit in the area are lychees, which are native to China and have a sweet, tangy flavor and are often enjoyed raw. They come neatly packaged in a tough, but easily removed husk that reveals a white nubbin of flesh surrounding a dark seed. Over recent years, crafty chefs and bartenders have started incorporating them into cocktails and desserts. An added bonus, Mr. Galligan says, is that lychee and mango trees are beautiful trees that can provide shade and are particularly attractive when they bloom. They should, however, be regularly trimmed back to maintain the quality of the fruit and promote growth. And they always need to be in full direct sun, especially lychees and mangoes, Mr. Galligan says. The tree should top out at about 10 feet, which reduces the need to feed it, enables easier harvesting and results in fewer, but better, fruit, he adds. Avocados are another favorite tropical fruit, but one that many people think cant be grown in Florida. Most varieties that are grown locally dont have the same texture and flavor as Hass avocados, which have dense, creamy meat and are notoriously difficult to cultivate here. But there are other varieties from Central America that are similar to Hass and are more easily cultivated in Florida. Brogdens and Bacon cultivars are a good choice for backyards. Other fruits that are delicious but not as widespread are sapodillas, mamey, carambola and jackfruit (which tastes like Juicy Fruit gum), all of which thrive in South Florida and are great additions to any fruit collection, Mr. Galligan says. Naples Botanical Garden and Collier County Extension Services host a tropical fruit sale that includes educational presentations starting at 9 a.m. Saturday, July 19, at the Garden. Admission is $15. Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling the Garden at 6437275. For more information, visit collier.ifas.ufl.edu. Horticulturist Brian Galligan at Naples Botanical Garden with a handful of lychees. GRACE RABENPickled MangoChef Jack Raben of the Fogge Caf at Naples Botanical Garden uses this on his Cuban sandwiches. 1 cup sugar 2 cups water 1 cup rice vinegar or any white vinegar 2 chilis, serrano, Fresno or jalapeno peppers, finely diced 6 mangos, peeled and sliced 1/8 inch thick 1 sprig fresh mint Combine sugar, water, vinegar and peppers and bring to a simmer until sugar has dissolved. Turn off heat, add mint and steep like tea until cooled to room temp. Add mango and let sit for 24 hours.Mango Mustard SauceChef Raben recommends this with chicken, seafood and pork. The caf catering menu for special events at the Garden has fried smoked gouda balls served with the sauce. 1 mango, diced inch 3 TBS local honey 1 TBS Dijon mustard Saut the mango in honey until soft. Salt lightly and puree in blender with Dijon.Avocado Lime Sorbet This recipe from savvyvegetarian.com was prepared as part of a recent Avocado 101 class taught at the Garden. to 1 cup sugar 1 TBS lime zest 2 cups ripe avocado (about 3 fruits) 2/3 cup fresh lime juice (about 3 limes) 1 cup water Process sugar and zest in food processor for 2 minutes. Add avocado, limejuice and water and process until smooth. Strain mixture and discard solids. Cover the bowl and freeze for 2 hours. Return to food processor and process until smooth. Repeat freezing and blending two more times, then freeze for one to eight hours. Best if served within 24 hours.Carambola Walnut Bread2 cups flour 1 tsp baking powder tsp baking soda 2/3 cups sugar cup vegetable oil 2 eggs 3/4 cup orange juice 1 cup chopped walnuts 1 cup carambola, seeds removed, diced Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and set aside. Cream together sugar, oil, eggs and orange juice. Add to dry ingredients, a little at a time. Fold in nuts and carambola. Bake in a well-greased pan at 350 for 45-50 minutes.
