The reason so many animals hug the coastline this time of year is that food is in high supply while water temperatures are warm, according to Capt. Dennis Kirk, a wildlife guide and owner of Nav-A-gator Grill & Marina at Lake Suzy in Charlotte County. The closer to shore, thats the food source for them, Capt. Kirk says. While food sources do exist farther from shore, he adds, there are also bigger predators out there.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA2 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 9-15, 2015 Bring Your Highest Expectations LIVINGSTON ROADPINE RIDGE ROAD EXIT 107WHIPPORWILL LANE N From the high $300s $600s COMMENTARY Patrician arrogance and Dolly PartonWhen Associate Justice Antonin Scalia wrote the blistering dissent from the Supreme Courts 5-4 decision last week guaranteeing the equal right of homosexuals to marry, he suggested that a bunch of highfalutin elitists had arbitrarily enshrined social upheaval as law, messing with an issue best left to legislators who represent everybody. After all, the United States is a coat of many colors, to paraphrase country singer Dolly Parton, one of more than 300 million Americans who lack any Supreme Court representation whatsoever, in Judge Scalias view. The five justices voting in the majority made their decision with patrician arrogance, which is only one color, he insisted. They know little about the hearts or minds of most American men or women. Instead, theyre just a bunch of Ivy Leaguers who should stick to strict constitutional interpretations of law, he argued. On that narrow playing field, being a geek from Harvard or Yale doesnt matter. I liked that a lot Judge Scalias willingness to hold up a mirror to nature, as Shakespeare said, and to recognize that there are other people in this land besides Ivy Leaguers. A Harvard Law School graduate himself, Judge Scalia is known on the court for two qualities: one, his staunch defense of conservative values springing from the notion that the Constitution is not a living document. It should not be changed as the weather or the country changes, like a repainted signpost. And two, hes been celebrated for his writing ever since Ronald Reagan appointed him in 1986: at once witty, acerbic, vivid and literate. I love reading his pronouncements from on high just for that reason alone. So let me share with you the typically muscular heart of his dissent. The Court, he said, consists of only nine men and women, all of them successful lawyers who studied at Harvard or Yale Law School. Four of the nine are natives of New York City. Eight of them grew up in eastand west-coast states. Only one hails from the vast expanse in-between. Not a single Southwesterner or even, to tell the truth, a genuine Westerner (California does not count). Not a single evangelical Christian (a group that comprises about one quarter of Americans), or even a Protestant of any denomination. The strikingly unrepresentative character of the body voting on todays social upheaval would be irrelevant if they were functioning as judges, answering the legal question whether the American people had ever ratified a constitutional provision that was understood to proscribe the traditional definition of marriage. But of course the Justices in todays majority are not voting on that basis; they say they are not. And to allow the policy question of same-sex marriage to be considered and resolved by a select, patrician, highly unrepresentative panel of nine is to violate a principle even more fundamental than no taxation without representation: no social transformation without representation. Thats sophisticated, strong and compelling thinking. Also, its completely wrong. Historically, Americans have always relied on representation by those unlike themselves for their social transformations. The Constitution itself was written mostly by patricians white landowners who had little in common with those they inspired. Slavery was put to rest in a violent civil war less than 90 years later by white men who had little in common with those they freed. Civil rights came about fully beginning a century after the Civil War because once again white men, people who had little in common with many other members of society, decided to represent all of us by passing the Civil Rights Act of 1964. And now in 2015, a nation of almost 320 million people who elected a black president twice is represented by 530 congressional lawmakers who sometimes seem to have hailed from (not Harvard, not Yale) Pluto. But did we choose them because they look like us or went to the same schools we did or had the same experiences? The evidence would suggest no. The median net worth of members of Congress is just over $1 million. In the Senate alone, its $2.7 million, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Does that represent our experiences? Not in Florida, where the median household income is about $47,000. There are 108 women in Congress, comprising 20 percent of our leaders. But roughly 51 percent of Americans or Floridians are women. There are 48 African Americans in Congress, or 8.9 percent, but about 16.7 percent of Floridians are African Americans. There are 38 Hispanic or Latino members of Congress, or 7 percent but almost 24 percent of Floridians are Hispanics or Latinos. Does Congress represent us, therefore, in a way that would satisfy Judge Scalia? One of our greatest strengths as Americans is a quality our enemies and naysayers have never understood: We are the coat of many colors. We are the people who can champion the rights of all, not just the rights of those who look like us or agree with us or have sex with the same model of human as we do. Even if we did go to Harvard or Yale. Even if we did grow up in Locust Ridge, Tenn., as one of 12 children in a Pentecostal family, like Dolly Parton. Although few or none of the Supreme Court justices have likely been to Locust Ridge, apparently five of them a majority represent her viewpoint. And they represent the viewpoints of many other Americans, most of whom havent been to Locust Ridge, either, or Harvard, or Yale. I dont want to be controversial or stir up a bunch of trouble, Ms. Parton told a British magazine last year, but people are going to love who they are going to love. I think gay couples should be allowed to marry. They should suffer just like us heterosexuals. f o n i a l roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

That is how President Barack Obama described the efforts to end racism. It was not a profound statement. Profound had already made its appearance earlier as a bloody massacre by a white racist of nine African-Americans attending a Bible study class in an historic black church in Charleston. The nation was still grieving, left distraught by the slayers unspeakable act of violence. In his eulogy to the slain The Rev. Clementa Pinckney and his fallen brothers and sisters in Christ, the president said the amazing grace of the victims families saved us all. They forgave the gunman of his racist crime. Three days later, the president was in Los Angeles giving a one-hour interview with someone off the pundit radar and in the unlikeliest of places with a comedian, in a garage. Marc Maron interviews celebrities and uploads podcasts on his WTF website. The call letters for his podcasts are not the same as the address for your favorite radio station. The interview was a huge coup for Maron, but before it took place, I had never heard of him a very uncool thing to admit to a millennial. He describes himself as, first, and foremost, a standup comic but his vitae includes radio broadcasts and appearances in film, television, print and social media. Says he about his online incarnation, Ive been fortunate enough to have a few dispersed clicks throughout what I guess has been a show biz career of relative obscurity but with a real freedom from the bondage of mediocrity. His modest self-appraisal and unscripted chat with the president brought him colossal success. The podcast went viral, attracting 1.6 million downloads the week after it became available online. I listened to it. It was an unusual and remarkable dialogue. The tone between guest and host is relaxed and thoughtful; a conversation between two individuals who had an hour to spare to talk about issues of common interest except one of them is the president of the free world, and the other one iswho? President Obama was nonetheless warm and unusually candid on a wide range of topics, from the transformations he experienced as a young person on matters of race to the challenges of a dysfunctional Congress. Yet the take-away subsequently reported was in majority limited to soundbites regarding the N-word, spoken by Obama during the interview. He used it in the context of remarks about racism, saying the demise of the N-word in public was not a yardstick to verify racisms decline. This is how President Obama used the N-word: Racism, we are not cured of it. And its not just a matter of it not being polite to say nigger in public. Thats not the measure of whether racism still exists or not. Its not just a matter of overt discrimination. Societies dont overnight completely erase everything that happened 200 to 300 years prior. I totally relate. Obamas statement brought to mind my father. He was born in the shadows of the great cotton mills in South Carolina, raised by a father widowed multiple times and who outlasted at least three wives that I know of. Racial segregation in his town, his state, and his South was absolute. The Klan was as much a communal franchise as the Rotary Club is today. The N-word was as firmly ingrained in his personality as the cigar that always teetered dangerously from the corner of his mouth. Still, he was a good, honest and hardworking man and not born a racist. Growing up white in the South taught him to become one. That cultural tattoo is more than skin deep and not easily undone, and his giving up the use of the N-word hardly tested the depth of change necessary to eradicate the systemic racism found throughout the South. He didnt have to just change his language. He had to change his attitudes and beliefs. It became unacceptable in his day to use the N-word in polite company. He knew it and migrated from the N-word to negras, then to coloreds, then to colored people, then to black people and had he lived long enough, would have arrived in the 21st century to describe the race of his co-workers and neighbors as African-American. Underneath the cosmetics of that shift, his heart changed his mind the dam of segregation was broken. Greater equity in opportunities for AfricanAmericans forced my father to confront his own racism. He, too, once was lost, but now was found, was blind, but now could see. In his lifetime, he was able to witness his own humanity reflected in the lives of others who shared the same hopes and dreams but whose race made them different. This is the transformation by amazing grace awaiting us all. Until it is complete, it is just as the president said, The march isnt over. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

Now that the Supreme Court has imposed its edict on the land, the question is whether religious institutions and people of faith will still be permitted to act on moral beliefs that the court has portrayed as bigoted and deeply wounding. In his long prose-poem about love masquerading as a judicial opinion, Justice Anthony Kennedy made a bow to these concerns. He cited the First Amendment for the proposition that religions and those who adhere to them may continue to advocate with utmost sincere conviction that, by divine precepts, same-sex marriage should not be condoned. Gee, thanks, Mr. Justice. This assurance is about as convincing as the rest of Kennedys airy majority opinion with little or no connection to the Constitution or law which is to say, people of faith ought to brace for the worst. Kennedys statement was carefully hedged to include only advocacy and teaching, a lawyerly wording that the other lawyers on the court were quick to pick up on. The First Amendment, Chief Justice John Roberts pointed out in his dissent, actually protects the freedom to exercise religion. That means people of faith acting on their beliefs, not merely advocating them or teaching them. In oral arguments, Justice Samuel Alito asked Solicitor General Donald Verrilli whether, on the model of Bob Jones University a few decades ago when it banned interracial dating and marriage, a college that opposed same-sex marriage could be denied taxexempt status. Its certainly going to be an issue, Verrilli admitted. I dont deny that. If supporters of same-sex marriage truly have no interest in punishing the exercise of religion they find objectionable, they can sign off on legislation to prevent it. Utah Sen. Mike Lee, a Republican, has a bill called the First Amendment Defense Act yes, its come to that protecting organizations from government retaliation over their opposition to gay marriage. There is unlikely to be a rush on the left to endorse it, when the American Civil Liberties Union is heading in the opposite direction. It has just withdrawn its support for the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, on grounds that it can be used to protect organizations refusing to get on board with gay marriage. Already, there are a few calls to remove the tax exemption of churches, now opposed to what the Supreme Court has deemed a fundamental right. These are only tea leaves. The move against religious groups will surely start small, with some isolated, unsympathetic Christian institution, and then grow until what once had been called unimaginable becomes mandatory. The push for gay marriage is motivated by a moralistic zeal that sees only one point of view on the question as legitimate. If its supporters werent patient enough to see their cause through the inevitable fits and starts of the democratic process, they arent going to let procedural niceties stand in the way of an effort to bulldoze their way to a more thoroughgoing conformity on the issue. The gay-marriage debate isnt over; it has merely entered a new phase. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

PROFILES IN PARADISEStepping up to help the communitys most vulnerable youth In 2013, 2,752 Collier County children were the subject of maltreatment investigations; 146 of them were removed from their homes, 53 percent due to caretaker/ parent drug or alcohol abuse, 17 percent because of physical abuse, 15 due to caretaker/parent incarceration, 14 percent because of neglect and 13 percent because of abandonment. Who looks after these children? Family and friends sometimes are willing and able to provide temporary shelter and support; when that is not the case, Youth Haven offers a safe harbor. Numerous community sources refer children for shelter at Youth Haven, including child protective services, courts, families needing respite, or even the children themselves. The solution to their problems, however, is not simply giving these children temporary shelter. It is providing them with the resources they need to improve their resiliency so that they can grow into happy, healthy, productive adults. The solution also requires intervention with families in which the parent or parents lack the skills to successfully raise the child. Finally, the solution includes helping the child find a safe and secure connection with their family or a responsible, caring adult. In addition to providing emergency shelter, Youth Haven offers a wide array of individual and group counseling services to adolescents and adults to treat a range of behavioral and mental health issues and to assist in solving personal and interpersonal difficulties. Jinx Liggetts introduction to Youth Haven was through a friend who was a member of the organizations board of directors. Jinx immediately became excited by the potential to build and strengthen the programs that had been in place for 43 years. Today, she is executive director of the nonprofit. When she came on board, there were six children in residence; today there are 47. James Jessee, president of the Youth Haven board of directors, credits Jinx for being instrumental in establishing a collaborative effort by like-minded charities to address the continuing concern for Collier Countys youth in need. Jinx earned a bachelors degree and an MBA from the University of Maryland and started her professional career in human resources at a general hospital in Maryland. From that experience, she built her career in health-care administration at a variety of hospitals, including working in a leadership capacity in for-profit and nonprofit inpatient mental health treatment facilities for children, adolescents and adults. As the daughter of a Navy pilot, Jinx moved many times in her youth. I always felt fortunate and was excited to have lived many places in the United States, she says. We were able to experience many cultures and meet many people. I believe that my brother and I have a greater appreciation for life and people due to our wonderful experiences. Her parents were always involved in numerous church and community activities. They instilled in us the importance of community involvement and giving back to the community in which we lived, she says. You are part of a community, and as a member of the community you must provide community support. Jinx is a past president of the board of directors for The Shelter for Abused Women & Children and a current member of Greater Naples Leadership and the Conservancy of Southwest Floridas Magic Under the Mangroves committee. bobHARDEN email@example.com Something your father was always right about: You are never better than or less than the person you are looking in the eye as you are speaking to them.

www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 9-15, 2015 HOUDINIFrom page 1stood the psychological torment of Mr. DeFriest, who was initially cast into the maw of the legal system in 1979 at the age of 19 for stealing a set of tools that had been legally bequeathed to him by his late father. Shakespeare surely could have defined the tragedy of the man who possesses prodigious mechanical talents which could have been put to productive use but whose disordered mind compels him into a seemingly never-ending loop of selfdefeating acts that have propelled him deeper into the abyss. And Mr. Grisham, of course, invariably loves a character who is abused by a callous and uncaring legal system (Mr. DeFriest personified) only to be rescued by idealistic, indefatigable heroes, who in this instance are Gabriel London an intrepid. New York-based maker of documentary films and dogged attorney John Middleton of Melrose, Fla. Mr. DeFriests Houdini-like escapes from straitjackets, leg irons, handcuffs and prison cells and his highly annoying (though brilliantly conceived) antics while incarcerated have driven officials within the Florida Department of Corrections and a string of befuddled judges, bureaucrats, sheriffs and correctional officers to a point somewhere on the far side of exasperation. As a result of his rebelliousness and rank insubordination, what was initially to be a four-year prison term (a sentence that virtually everyone familiar with the case now concedes was not only unjust but unconscionable as well) has grown into 35-plus years of continuous confinement during which Mr. DeFriest has been subjected to repeated sexual violation and other forms of physical and psychological degradation. Incredibly, 27 years have been spent in solitary confinement sometimes in conditions so squalid and unsparing that they can only be characterized as medieval. During one horrendous stretch, he was kept out of sunlight for 10 years, says Mr. Middleton. Because Mr. DeFriests saga is so compelling, so shocking and, well, so downright weird, the larger significance of his ordeal often is lost in the surrounding hubbub. How many other Mark DeFriests perpetrators of nonviolent crimes that are symptomatic of mental defects rather than true criminality languish in Floridas prisons and jails? How many other Mark DeFriests grow sicker by the day as they serve out their sentences in violent, nerve-fraying cell blocks, surrounded by inmate predators and indifferent and sometimes barbarous correctional officers who are ill-suited to deal with their special needs and peculiarities? And what will become of these lost souls, who are warehoused in overcrowded prisons that have become modern-day Bedlams, when they are released back into society? No one can answer these questions with anything approaching precision, but what the experts can say is that we undoubtedly are incarcerating substantial numbers of people who desperately need treatment, not imprisonment, and to that end, the mournful tale of Mark DeFriest stands as Exhibit A.Into the abyssMechanical genius, savant, prodigy these are terms that have been used to describe Mr. DeFriest. His extraordinary talents were displayed early and often. By the time he was 6, Mr. DeFriest could breakdown and then reassemble almost anything from watches to engines. Ive met a lot of brilliant people in my time, but Ive only met one Mark DeFriest, says Ron McAndrew, a former warden at Florida State Prison. His brilliance is so great that it is hard to describe. But this brilliance and mechanical acumen came with a price. Mr. DeFriest suffers from some sort of mental disorder. The exact nature of this disability is a matter of debate. Diagnoses over the years have run the psychiatric spectrum. The consensus now seems to be that Mr. DeFriests behavioral problems arise from something associated with autism. Aspergers syndrome, which impairs ones ability to cultivate social skills and relate to others, could be the culprit. Whatever the cause, Mr. DeFriests quirky, eccentric character does not always endear him to those who cross his path. In fact, it would not be incorrect to say that he could (and still can) get on peoples nerves. Not violent or threatening, mind you, but exceedingly grating nonetheless. And thus Mr. DeFriest, by the time he was a teenager, had pretty well tested the boundaries of his stepmothers patience. Mark definitely was a pain in the ass when he was younger, says Mr. Middleton. No doubt about that. Mr. London, the filmmaker who was the director and driving force behind the widely praised documentary, The Life and Mind of Mark DeFriest, concurs. Mark was a handful, says Mr. London. His family tried to deal with him in a number of ways. Mr. DeFriest himself concedes that he was a wild child. He says that he often conducted elaborate scientific experiments in the basement of his home. I blew myself up a couple of times. (A note: Mr. Middleton declined to make his client available for a jailhouse interview with Florida Weekly. Direct quotes attributed to Mr. DeFriest in this article are taken from Mr. Londons superb film.) The DeFriest family was living in rural Gadsden County in 1979 when his father died. Mr. DeFriest was 19 years old, and he knew that his father had willed to him his prized tool collection. Mr. DeFriest had no understanding of the laws of probate, and before the will was properly run through the courts, he decided to go to a shed where the tools were kept. He used a key to enter and claim his inheritance. In a sense, Mark and his father had this deep connection that was really a mechanical connection, Mr. London told an interviewer last year. His dad had a history of having been in World War II, was an OSS person, really believed that the Communists were coming, and he sort of prepared his child, his only son, his only child, in a way to be prepared for the Russians who were coming. Mr. London continued, And Mark grew up around guns. He grew up around, you know, essentially what he calls guerrilla warfare, the sort of avoidance tactics and theories that his dad prepared him in. In other families, the stepmother might have explained the proper procedures to the young man and advised him to return the tools and wait for the will to be properly probated. Not so in this case. The stepmother called the cops, and Mark DeFriest was arrested and later pleaded guilty to theft. When police came to apprehend Mr. DeFriest, he panicked and ran. When captured, it was discovered that he had a gun, which he neither brandished nor used during the incident. In essence, the stepmother had used the criminal justice system to resolve what was little more than a family spat. Given the extraordinary circumstances after all, the tools were willed to Mr. DeFriest and he was only 19 years old one might expect a judge to administer a slap on the wrist. Instead, Mr. DeFriest was sentenced to four years in prison. Four years in prison for petty theft; that is just outrageous, says Steven Leifman, a Miami-Dade County Criminal Division judge who also has served as a special adviser to the Florida Supreme Court on criminal justice and mental health. Judge Leifman flatly believes that Mr. DeFriest should never have gone to prison. But to prison he went, and for Mark DeFriest, the nightmare was about to begin. His unruliness, erratic behavior, tangled thought patterns and fondness for escape led to concerns about his mental capacity. Mr. DeFriest was thought to be incompetent and was packed off to Chattahoochee, where the moldering relic known as Florida State Hospital was located. When Mr. DeFriest arrived at FSH in early 1981, he entered a Dickensian, forbidding, One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest-style place. I know this to be true, because at about the time Mr. DeFriest took up residence at FSH, I visited the hospital, as a reporter working on an unrelated story. Unsurprisingly, Mr. DeFriest surveyed the surreal scene at FSH and decided that he wanted out. Mr. DeFriest says his initial plan at FSH was to get everybody stoned... when everybody started freaking out, I was gonna go. To accomplish this audacious feat, Mr. DeFriest used his extraordinary skills to gain access to the hospitals pharmacy, from which he obtained 75 to 100 tabs of the powerful hallucinogenic drug LSD-25, which he then used to spike the coffee pot used by the staff. As Mr. DeFriest had anticipated, his captors did indeed begin to freak out, but his plan quickly collapsed. Well, somebody got wise and called security, Mr. DeFriest recalls. Before I could make my move, they surrounded the whole... ward. Undaunted, he later successfully made his way out of FSH, fleeing into the swamps, as he puts it. Mr. DeFriest was not loose long before he was recaptured and thrown into the Bay County Jail, where he proceeded to escape from three different cells and fashion a zip gun from a toothpaste tube. His misbehavior infuriated his keepers, and he was placed in solitary confinement for 11 days. During this time he was often muscled into a straitjacket, from which he managed to free himself twice, and leg irons. He was routinely doused by deputies with water and pepper spray. He was kept naked, shoeless and there was no mattress, running water or light in his cell. A judge would later compare the conditions to that of a North Vietnamese prisonerof-war camp. The ability to wrestle his way out of straitjackets and other restraints at the Bay County Jail possibly prompted the first comparisons to Houdini.

The sentence this time around: life in prison. Mr. DeFriest was deemed competent enough to be returned to the prison system, and he was housed in a series of facilities. Four of five court-appointed psychiatrists who had examined Mr. DeFriest found him to be mentally ill and incompetent. The fifth examiner who has since reversed his diagnosis and now advocates on Mr. DeFriests behalf said he was faking symptoms. The court agreed with the lone dissenter. Once back in the system, he bounced from institution to institution. One of his stops was the Leon County Jail where Mr. DeFriest in a scene straight out of a movie knotted sheets together and lowered himself out of a third-floor cell, Mr. London recounts. The Leon County incident was the final straw, as far as the Department of Corrections was concerned, and Mr. DeFriest was transferred to Florida State Prison sometime around the beginning of 1982, according to Mr. London. When he got (to FSP) he was entering hell on earth, says Mr. McAndrew, who was the warden at FSP for a portion of the time that Mr. DeFriest spent there. Mr. McAndrew is now a nationally renowned lecturer and consultant on prison management and reform. He was a longtime official in the DOC and FSPs warden from 1996 to 1998. FSP had long been ungovernable, Mr. McAndrew says, adding that goon squads composed of correctional officers roamed the cell blocks, beating and degrading prisoners with impunity. Additionally, inmates themselves inflicted great violence on one another while authorities turned a blind eye. (FSP) was run like an organized crime operation, Mr. McAndrew says. Mr. McAndrew is not alone in this assessment. James McDonough, a former secretary of the DOC, told CNN that FSPs administrative structure was shockingly tainted when he assumed his job in 2006. Corruption had gone to an extreme, Mr. McDonough said in the interview. (Many of the prisons hierarchy and staff) seemed to be drunk half the time and had orgies with the other half, when they werent taking money and beating each other up. For his part, Mr. DeFriest says he encountered nothing but death and drama at FSP. Mr. DeFriest who, at the age of 54, still retains a faint youthful look was a prime target at the prison, for both inmates and rogue correctional officers. He was brilliant. He was odd. He refused to align with any gang. His mental problems were apparent. In prison parlance, he was a walk alone. Anyone familiar with the inner workings of a penal institution will tell you that an inmate who stands out, who is a loner, who is troubled and vulnerable, is imperiled. The dangers facing mentally challenged inmates were graphically outlined in a report released last May by Human Rights Watch titled Callous and Cruel: Use of Force against Inmates with Mental Disabilities in U.S. Jails and Prisons. Jails and prisons can be dangerous, damaging and even deadly places for men and women with mental health problems, Jamie Fellner, the reports author, said in a statement at the time of its release. Every day our courts, correctional facilities and law enforcement agencies are witness to a parade of misery brought on by untreated mental illnesses, Judge Leifman said in testimony before a subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives. Mr. DeFriest quickly learned how dangerous and damaging prison can be. Not long after he was deposited at FSP, he claims 15 inmates gang raped him. He underwent surgery to repair the damage that arose from the sexual assault. Precise, official details of the multiple atrocities visited upon Mr. DeFriest and other facts about his stay at FSP and other correctional facilities are difficult to obtain. Floridas DOC refuses to discuss or comment on anything involving Mr. DeFriest or the time he spent in its custody. Unfortunately, due to Mr. DeFriest being listed as a protection case, we cannot disclose any information, Alberto Moscoso, a DOC spokesman, wrote in an email to Florida Weekly. This is in accordance with Florida Statute 119. Despite the lack of official verification of a number of incidents, Mr. McAndrew, for one, says there is little reason to doubt Mr. DeFriests accounts of life within the walls of FSP. In 1986 Mr. DeFriest finally caught a break when attorney John Middleton entered the picture. Mr. Middleton succeeded in getting the life sentence overturned, and he remained committed to Mr. DeFriest as a client. But the Prison Houdini still faced decades of prison time. Mr. DeFriest continued his unruly behavior, which included acts that he considered to be pranks. Prison officials, however, were not amused. In one memorable stunt, Mr. DeFriest contrived a way to pop open all the locked doors in his cell block, allowing inmates to roam free. (To this day no one, save Mr. DeFriest, knows how he accomplished this.) Mark did those things to pass time, says Mr. McAndrew. He was never violent, but he was treated violently. While correctional officers despised Mr. DeFriest, Mr. McAndrew says they also were intimidated by his superior intellect, which only deepened their contempt. Inmates continued to view him as a prime target, and this forced Mr. DeFriest to take a drastic measure in hopes of securing his safety. Mr. DeFriest married a violent Cuban offender who was one of FSPs most-feared inmates. At the behest of his husband, Mr. DeFriest was advised to behave like a lady. He began dressing as a woman and adopted the persona of Mrs. Wendy Castro. Mr. DeFriest says he wasnt gay or a transvestite when he was dropped into this zoo. He merely hoped to survive by any means possible. Whats a poor girl to do? he now asks. Mr. DeFriests protector could not afford him total security within FSPs infamous X-wing, which was a veritable chamber of horrors that sat one floor above the room that housed the electric chair. The X-wing was reserved for the worst of the worst. For many years, Mr. DeFriests X-wing home was a 7-by-8-foot windowless cell that had been specially designed for him. He went years without access to the prison yard or exposure to sunlight or exercise. An attorney for a prisoner advocacy group compared the X-wing to something out of the Dark Ages. The wings cells were likened to dungeons. As further punishment, Mr. DeFriest was put on a diet of prison loaf. This non-nutritious, practically inedible concoction is fashioned unseasoned from mashed vegetables, beans and starches. Those who have tried it compare it to eating cardboard or chalk. By all accounts, prison loaf would gag the proverbial maggot. The goon squads of correctional officers operated with impunity in the X-wing. What went on in that bizarre little world of madness and mayhem was not known to the general public until July 17, 1999, when nine officers entered the cell of convicted murderer Frank Valdes for what is known as an extraction. At the time of the incident, Mr. Valdes was awaiting execution for killing a correctional officer in Palm Beach County a crime that made him a prime target for those who guarded him. The officers contended that the prisoner had fallen or jumped off his bunk and died as a result. There was a suggestion of suicide. Autopsies told a different story. The examinations found that Mr. Valdes suffered 22 broken ribs, a broken sternum, a broken nose and partial fracture of the left clavicle. A medical examiner said that the injuries could not have been self-inflicted. Mr. Valdes, the medical examiner concluded, was beaten to death. Among those who witnessed the fracas was Mark DeFriest, who was in a nearby cell. Mr. DeFriests account confirmed the medical examiners report. Mr. DeFriest insisted that Mr. Valdes was the victim of a prolonged and savage beating. (Several officers were indicted in the death and all were acquitted by a Bradford County jury that, according to Mr. McAndrew, included members who were openly sympathetic to prison employees.) By giving his account of the Valdes incident, Mr. DeFriest was further marked by officers who now were bent on revenge for his blowing the whistle on their comrades. For his safety, Mr. DeFriest initially was transferred out of FSP to a prison in California under a program known as the Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision, which allows states to transfer inmates for a variety of reasons, including those deemed to be at risk of exceptional violence. If he had stayed (at FSP) there is no doubt that he would have been killed, Mr. McAndrew says. Not only was he a witness in the Valdes case, he talked about it. Most (inmates) know that their best chance for survival is to keep quiet. But Mark chose to talk. Since then, Mr. DeFriest has been transferred to prisons in at least three other states. Mr. Middleton will not say where Mr. DeFriest is currently being held. While in prison in Florida, Mr. DeFriests repeated escape attempts and other supposed infractions of DOC rules had earned him 209 disciplinary reports, which is believed to be a record number for a single inmate. Mr. McAndrew says he is certain that most of the disciplinary reports for things such as possession of escape paraphernalia and destruction of state property were false accusations specifically designed to prolong Mr. DeFriests captivity. The escapes and many of the rules violations earned Mr. DeFriest additional prison time. These add-on sentences meant that the initial four-year term eventually mushroomed into an astronomical total. His earliest possible release date, when the escapes and violations were tallied, was 2085 a staggering 106 years after his first conviction for theft. Mark DeFriest, it seemed, was destined to die in confinement. And to think that all of this mess was started because a 19-year-old mentally unstable young man unlocked a shed and took some tools that his late father wanted him to have. Mr. Middleton worked diligently on behalf of his client, but things appeared bleak and dispiriting. Ive represented inmates who did a whole lot worse and got out sooner, he says. It would take an instance of pure serendipity to drastically change Mr. DeFriests fortunes.ResurrectionIt was 2001, and Gabriel London was fresh out of Pomona College in California. He had signed on with the Human Rights Watch to research prison rape in the United States. As part of that research, he came across a story from the Miami Herald that outlined Mr. DeFriests terrible plight. It mentioned that he had never harmed another individual, Mr. London recollects. His story grabbed me immediately. It grabbed him so much that over the next decade or so, the story of Mark DeFriest would come to dominate his professional life. Mr. London envisioned a film a documentary about Mr. DeFriests case. He was particularly struck by the fact that Mr. DeFriest had been the only nonviolent prisoner to be housed in the X-wing. The draconian measures taken against the obviously troubled inmate made no sense to Mr. London. The aspiring filmmaker was not content with merely chronicling the plight of the imprisoned man; he Mark DeFriest speaks on camera from prison in Gabriel Londons 2014 documentary,The Life and Mind of Mark DeFriest.SEE HOUDINI, A10

Mr. Londons documentary debuted last year to widespread critical acclaim. Showtime bought it (where it is now airing through July), giving it wider viewership than many documentaries receive. Most important was the outrage generated by the film. Suddenly, those who had long trumpeted Mr. DeFriests cause were being heard and taken seriously. His ordeal took on a larger meaning and came to symbolize the plight of the mentally ill in prison. This case says a lot about the inadequacies of our justice system, says Randall Berg, executive director of the Florida Justice Institute in Miami. Being locked up all that time exacerbated his mental illness. While Mr. DeFriests saga is bizarre and therefore of interest, Mr. Berg says that thousands of nonviolent prisoners in Florida who need treatment for mental ailments are doing time under the radar and growing sicker and sicker as a result. The mentally ill get convicted, go to prison and they spiral downward from there, he says. Judge Leifman says the justice system is inept at how to handle these people. He had high hopes earlier this year that Florida lawmakers were finally ready to tackle some of these problems. More bills have been filed (in the Florida Legislature) on mental health in the last seven years than in all previous years combined, Judge Leifman notes. But a compromise prison bill, hailed as an important first step at significant reform, was rejected in April in the Florida Senate after passage in the House. On the positive side, though, a lawsuit settlement was reached in May between the DOC and an advocacy group. Under this settlement, the DOC agreed to new protections for mentally ill inmates at Dade Correctional Institute, which houses the states largest mental health facility for inmates. As for Mr. DeFriest, both Mr. London and Mr. Middleton knew that it would be difficult to find an avenue for his release. Florida abolished parole in the 1980s. Some cases were grandfathered in, and Mr. DeFriest was among them. But there were few grounds for optimism. The ill will that Mr. DeFriest had engendered seemed to have sabotaged any realistic chance for release. But last December, the unthinkable happened; Floridas Commission on Offender Review (formerly the Florida Parole Commission) perhaps bowing to public sentiment and pressure moved Mr. DeFriests release date from 2085 to 2015. They did something that was courageous, Mr. Middleton says, referring to the commission. It was a politically dangerous move. Mr. DeFriest will not be released immediately. Charges involving prison misconduct in two states where he has been held need to be resolved. But the belief is that he will be set free as early as this year or possibly in 2018 or shortly thereafter. The question now is this: Can Mr. DeFriest, after more than three decades of imprisonment and physical and mental abuse, adjust to life in the outside world? Mr. Middleton and Mr. London have put together a comprehensive postrelease plan that they believe gives Mr. DeFriest a good shot at living out his days peacefully and successfully. An important element in this plan is the role that Mr. DeFriests wife, Bonnie, will play. Mr. Middleton describes Mrs. DeFriest as very, very kind, calling her a very good soul. Both Mark and Bonnie are at a point in life where they want companionship, says Mr. London. They both see the world through the same glasses. They are so close there is no daylight between them. Mrs. DeFriest who lives in Oregon, where she and her husband most likely will live following his release agreed to answer questions presented by Florida Weekly via email. She writes that she became acquainted with Mr. DeFriest through a metaphysics/higher consciousness pen pal list that somehow fell into the hands of inmates at FSP. Soon, the two were corresponding regularly. Although I was a little uneasy about writing to an inmate, as I had never known one before, I felt drawn to him and I chose love instead of fear feeling that this man needs my help. So I began my letter to him Dear Holy Child of God... They were married in a judges chambers in Montana on May 31, 1994, in a proxy marriage. Mrs. DeFriests brother filled in for the absent groom. Five days after the ceremony, Mrs. DeFriest traveled to Florida to meet her husband for the first time. She describes the meeting in prose that would make a writer of lush romance novels proud. (W)hen I waited in the visiting room for him to appear, and then saw him come through the ... door from the changing room, I practically sprouted wings and FLEW into his arms!!! The attraction was so POWERFUL the energy between us undeniable!!! His response was immediate as his tall lanky bodys arms took possession of me and he planted a wonderful deep kiss on my mouth (Yes, ladies, he IS a Good Kisser!). As Mrs. DeFriest points out, she is lot older than her 54-year-old husband. Im 84 now, and hanging on the best I can. I have some heart problems, and pretty severe arthritis in my back and knees, so I have to walk with some support. He feels determined to come home and take care of me, and thats a PLUS for me!!! Asked if she harbors concerns about Mr. DeFriests ability to adapt to life as a free man, she writes, No doubts at all. Hell figure something out. We have a detailed plan, says Mr. Middleton. It includes jobs offers, health insurance and a lot of things. Mr. Middleton says that once freed, Mr. DeFriest is gonna have to behave himself. Was (Mr. DeFriest) ever a danger? asks Mr. London. No, he was a nuisance. He was punished for his symptoms. Marks looking for a community where he can be himself. No ones going to find him at the local bar getting angry. If all goes according to the plan, Mr. London is confident that Mr. DeFriest will live out his days in peace and quiet. But, he cautions, its a big if. HOUDINIFrom page 9

Government in action The federal Medicare Fraud Strike Force obtained indictments of 243 people in June in a variety of alleged scams and swindles, and among those arrested was Dr. Noble U. Ezukanma, 56, of Fort Worth, Texas, who once billed the government for working 205 hours in a single day (Oct. 16, 2012). Other indictees were similarly accused of inflating the work they supposedly did for Medicare patients, but Dr. Ezukanma clearly had the most productive day of the bunch. Republican presidential contender Carly Fiorina, who with her husband earned $2.5 million last year, disclosed that the U.S. tax system required her to file not just a federal return but returns in 17 states, as well, and a June New York Times report chose one state (Michigan) to highlight the Fiorinas plight. Ultimately, the Fiorinas determined that they owed Michigan income tax of $40, but they had no way of knowing the exact amount until they had completed 58 pages of documents (to rule out various Michigan attempts to collect more because the tax they owed was more justly payable to other states and could thus be excluded). Canadas naval vessels stationed in Halifax, Nova Scotia, currently lack supply-ship services, according to a May Canadian Press report. One of the two supply vessels has been decommissioned, and the other, 45 years old, is floating limply because of corrosion, and work on a replacement will not begin until 2017. Consequently, according to the report, the navy has been forced to order repair parts for the ship by advertising for them on eBay.News you can use A brief Washington Post review in June heralded the new edition of the Routledge International Handbook of Ignorance Studies, covering different types of ignorance in a range of subjects by authors from various countries. Among the valuable conclusions in the book is that while individual ignorance may be rational in some cases, it is unlikely that collective ignorance advances the society. In any event, the author concluded, The realm of ignorance is so vast that no one volume can fully cover it all. Only in Florida Because the walkway in front of a Publix supermarket in Fort Lauderdale had seen its share of Girl Scout cookie sellers, Patrick Lanier apparently thought the venue a natural for his product. On June 4, he plopped down a live, 5-foot-long shark he had just captured, and which he hectored shoppers to buy, asking $100 (and occasionally tossing buckets of water on it to keep it shimmering). He had less success than the cookie-peddlers, and in short-order loaded it back into his truck, took it to an inlet and released it. However, he did avoid the police; it is illegal to sell fish without a commercial license. Oh, dear The New York Court of Appeals ruled in June that, when a body is taken for official autopsy and organs are removed (including the brain), the deceaseds family does not necessarily have a right to receive the body with organs re-inserted. Nothing in our common law jurisprudence, the judges wrote, mandates that the medical examiner do anything more than produce the ... body. The family had demanded the entire body back for a proper Catholic burial.Least competent criminals Marijuana is purported to make some heavy users paranoid, and the January arrest of alleged Bozeman, Montana, dealers Leland Ayala-Doliente, 21, and Craig Holland, 22, may have been a case in point. Passersby had reported the two men pacing along the side of Golden Beauty Drive in Rexburg, Idaho, and, when approached by a car, would throw their hands up until the vehicle passed. When police finally arrived, one suspect shouted: We give up. We know were surrounded. The drugs (20 pounds of marijuana) are (over there). According to the Idaho Falls Post Register, they were not surrounded, nor had they been followed by undercover officers as the men claimed.Cultural diversity A low-caste minor girl was beaten up by several higher-caste women in the village of Ganeshpura, India, in June (in retaliation for the girls having disrespected a male relative of the women by allowing her shadow to partially cover the man). The girls family managed to get to a police station to file charges, but in some remote villages like Ganeshpura, higher-caste aggressors can intimidate the victims into silence (and in this case, allegedly threatened to kill the girl and members of her family for the shadow-casting). Yunessan Spa House in Hakone, Japan, recently began offering guests supposedly soothing, skin-conditioning baths of ramen noodles (elevating to health status what might be Japans real national dish). The pork broth that fills the tub is genuine, but because of health department regulations, only synthetic noodles can be used, and it is not clear that the artificial ramen achieves the same (allegedly) beautifying collagen levels as actual noodles.

So take advantage of the empty beaches and wade out to a sandbar, or poke around in the estuaries. Just keep your eyes open, shuffle your feet and leave it where you find it. Sand dollarsTwo types of sand dollar are common to the Southwest Florida coast: the Florida keyhole sand dollar easily found close to shore, and sea biscuits, which going a bit farther afield. Snorkelers have a better chance of finding the puffy and very delicate sea biscuits in waters at least 150 yards from the beach. While these echinoderms make pretty ornaments when strung onto wire, taking live ones home to bleach and embellish is illegal. Instead, feel along the sea floor with your feet to find them, clasp one with your toes and bring it to the surface to examine the hundreds of squirming feet on the under side. At the center is its mouth, which it uses to eat small plants and food it finds in the sand. Analyzing a sand dollar is infinitely more interesting than bleaching and decorating it. And come late summer, there will be a healthy supply in the gulf to keep you occupied. Nine-armed sea starAnother invertebrate, sea stars are fascinating to small children. They can mostly be found in calm waters with a sandy or muddy bottom, which includes most beaches in Collier County. Its diet consists mostly of mollusks, small crustaceans and worms that it ingests by expelling its stomach and engulfing its prey. As with sand dollars, beachgoers are free to pick up sea stars from the water, but they cannot take them home or even carry them up to the beach. Its not uncommon to find a sea star that is missing some legs, but dont fret, they grow back. A full-grown sea star can be more than 1 foot wide. If youre feeling brave, put a big one on your head and hold tight as their legs drape around your skull. Sea turtlesEach spring, loggerhead and green female sea turtles trudge up the beach to bury their ping-pong ball sized eggs in the sand. The hatchlings start emerging in July and make a perilous journey to the water, navigating predators, disorientation and typical newborn navet. Floridians are very protective of their sea turtles, and tampering with one of the taped-off nests is likely to get you in a world of trouble with anyone who knows about the long-standing, statewide protection program. Its unlikely that many beachgoers will catch the emergence of hatchlings, which usually happens after dark, but they will definitely see the nests cordoned off by local environmental agencies. Turtle hatchlings are drawn to the sea by the light emitted by the water, but they can be easily confused by streetlights and porch lights. Beachgoers are advised to alert the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission if they CRITTERSFrom page 1COURTESY PHOTOSSand dollar Sea turtle Sea biscuit

A third sea turtle species, the Kemps Ridley turtle, hatches in Mexico, but the hatchlings ride the gulfstream to the Ten Thousand Islands, where there is an ample supply of food. Southern stingraysOdd looking and docile, Southern stingrays are most likely to be seen just off the beach in late summer when large groups converge to mate. Their flat, triangular-shaped body allows them to easily disguise themselves from predators as they forage for food on the sandy sea floor. Groups of stingrays are not difficult to spot and avoid. However, individuals that are hiding in the sand do pose a small threat to bathers. Once buried in the sand, stingrays are impossible to detect by sight which is unfortunate, because they are equipped with a stout, barbed stinger that while not poisonous to humans, is incredibly painful. Be advised to employ the stingray shuffle, sliding your feet underwater through the sand so the rays can detect the vibrations and move elsewhere. Variegated sea urchinWhile not very pretty, Southwest Floridas sea urchins are cool to look at and can be found in sea grasses and rocky reefs. Although their spherical shell covered in spines gives them a formidable appearance, urchins are mostly herbivorous and wont hurt anyone unless theyre stepped on. Surprisingly, they are edible and even considered a delicacy in some circles, though they are difficult to cultivate or capture in large enough quantities for commercial purposes. ShellsSummer storms churn up all manner of flotsam and jetsam and eject it onto local beaches. For beautiful specimens to take home, Capt. Kirk suggests heading to Sanibel Island, a prime location for washout in shells. Naples is a good destination for those who want to find live mollusks but only to look at, not to take home. Possible finds? Coquinas are small filter feeders that live under the sand at the shoreline. To find them, look for small holes in the sand when a wave retreats, as the clams rapidly bury themselves after having been exposed. Some Caribbean cultures like to eat coquinas. Capt. Kirk says lightning whelks are easier to find this time of year as they favor water temperatures between 77 and 82 degrees. As a predatory and relatively large mollusk, the whelk eats mostly bivalves by prying open their shells with its foot and sucking out the animal with its probiscus. CrabsFlorida is home to several varieties of crabs, particularly hermit crabs, which beachgoers are more likely to see in the summer, when stormy weather brings them ashore. The giant hermit crab, the largest in North America, is the most common type in our area. It seeks shelter in empty mollusk shells and finds new homes as it grows. Ghost crabs are beach-dwelling crustaceans that live in burrows to keep their gills wet and use their strong claws to crush mollusks and other crabs for food. They are incredibly agile; watch for them scurrying along the sand on the tips of their toes on Key Island or the estuary at Clam Pass in Collier County. Where to lookTo find sea creatures that most people would miss, Capt. Kirk suggests inspecting clumps of seaweed, particularly long strands of turtle grass. Tiny creatures cling to the vegetation and are carried by currents up to the beach. (The animals) kind of coagulate together, he says. You can actually see little seahorses and crabs. Local parks and environmental research groups provide a wealth of information about which animals are at local beaches and where to find them. In Collier County, Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, the Rookery Bay Environmental Learning Center and the Conservancy of Southwest Florida all offer various guided walks and interpretative programs about various aspects of the local marine environment and its inhabitants. Check the park schedule at floridastateparks.org/delnor-wiggins and visit the conservancy.org and rookerybay.org for schedules, cost and more information. Southern stingray Ghost crab

Memory is often overlooked during health-care checkups. This can be attributed to misperceptions and fears, perhaps the most common of which is an apprehension that nothing can be done about memory loss. But many forms of memory loss are reversible, and for other forms of memory loss, early detection is the key. Screenings will take approximately 20 minutes.

Smart mouth guard could take a bite out of teeth grinding THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAThe next big thing in wearable technology might show up right inside your mouth. Researchers at the University of Florida have developed a smart mouth guard equipped with sensors that allow it to detect if youre grinding your teeth, tell your dentist and even help you stop doing it. Whats more, the next version of the guard, currently under development, might be able to tell when an athlete is becoming dehydrated or overheated and even whether he or she may have gotten a concussion. The device is the creation of YongKyu YK Yoon, an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, and his colleagues. Mr. Yoon, who also is director of the Multidisciplinary Nano and Microsystems Lab at UF, worked on the project with Fong Wong, an associate professor in UFs Restorative Dental Sciences Department and Craniofacial Center. Their concept won them a secondplace prize at last months International Contest of Applications in Nano/Micro Technologies in Anchorage, Alaska, where the UF team represented the United States. Mr. Yoon came up with the idea about five years ago when he was developing a set of dentures that alert the dentist to an improper fit even if the patient doesnt complain about it. That got him to thinking about something similar that could help an even larger share of the population: those who suffer from bruxism, aka teeth grinding. Mr. Wong said at least 20 percent of the U.S. population about 30 million people suffer from bruxism, which frequently is caused by stress and can lead to damaged teeth, headaches, insomnia and a sore jaw. Most people dont even know they do it. The most common way to diagnose it is for the patient to spend a night in a sleep clinic. Wouldnt it be easier and more efficient, Mr. Yoon thought, for the patient to stay home using a mouth guard equipped with sensors that could detect bruxism, measure how much force was being applied by the jaw and which teeth were most affected? Ms. Wong thought the same thing. Wearing a mouth guard is less intrusive than spending time in a sleep clinic, she says. It cuts cost when it reduces the number of clinical psychology sessions. The prototype they created does all of that and can send the information to a computer or smart phone via Bluetooth, enabling a dentist or orthodontist to retrieve it, make a diagnosis and suggest treatment. That kind of information has been unavailable until now, Mr. Yoon says. The mouth guard is an improvement over traditional bruxism therapies, such as behavioral modification training during clinical sessions, Ms. Wong says. The advantage is that the guard extends the treatment beyond the time spent in the clinic, she adds. This promises greater effectiveness and lower cost. Mr. Yoon says one population that could stand to benefit from the smart mouth guard is combat veterans with post-traumatic stress, which can lead to bruxism. But the smart mouth guards potential extends beyond dentistry. The next iteration could be aimed at athletes. Using different types of sensors, it could detect dehydration or dangerous core body temperature and alert a coach to pull a player off the field. That same information could be useful for firefighters. It also could measure the strength of a blow to the head, which could give doctors early warning about the possibility of a concussion.

Community foundation reaches $100 million in charitable assets SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe Community Foundation of Collier County announces it now manages $100 million in charitable assets. The number represents a 56 percent increase in asset size since June 2013 and puts the foundation in the Top 10 of Florida community foundations. In the last 12 months alone, CFCC has distributed more than $9.8 million to nonprofit organizations locally and around the world. These dollars fuel programs that meet local challenges and improve the quality of life in our region. CFCC tracks critical areas such as homelessness, hunger, health care, the arts, the environment, economic development and issues facing women and girls in Collier County. President and CEO Eileen ConnollyKeesler credits the growth to Collier Countys spirit of generosity, a commitment from private foundation fund holders who have moved their private foundation assets to the foundation, an increase in the number of nonprofits that have established their endowment funds with the foundation and the improved economy. Families, nonprofits and companies have created 49 new charitable funds at the foundation in fiscal year 2015. Among those participating in this growth are the Community School of Naples, the Greater Marco Family YMCA, the Greater Naples YMCA, Naples Botanical Garden and the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County. Of the foundation's $100 million in assets, approximately 80 percent is comprised of donor-advised funds and designated funds held at the foundation. Foundation staff continually educates these donors about needs in the community so that donors can direct funds for greatest impact. Only $15.5 million of the CFCCs total assets are tagged as unrestricted dollars that the foundation can use to respond quickly to community needs and address issues as they emerge. Unrestricted funds are critical to almost every nonprofit, and Ms. Connolly-Keesler hopes to increase the pool of such funds. The ratio of unrestricted dollars to total assets is somewhat higher in the majority of other community foundations, she says. Unrestricted giving does require a deeper level of trust between the donor and the foundation, she adds. Donors must feel confident their funds will be used to move us forward. But we believe that we have built that kind of trust. For more information about the Community Foundation of Collier County, call 649-5000 or visit cfcollier.org.

Were talking about extreme physical traits, such as the excessively flat faces seen in many Persian cats, bulldogs, Pekingese, pugs, Boston terriers and other brachycephalic (short-nosed) breeds. Snorting and snoring, or the undershot jaw of the bulldog or boxer, are often thought to be endearing characteristics. But when those traits cause animals to gasp for air after minimal exertion, develop heatstroke or even die from exposure to heat and humidity, its no life for a dog or cat. Its not great for their humans, either, who pay high veterinary bills to treat their animals or lose them to an early death. Pets with extremely flat faces are prone to a condition called brachycephalic syndrome. They may have pinched or narrowed nostrils, known as stenotic nares; an elongated soft palate, which partially blocks the airway; everted saccules, small sacs just inside the larynx that can turn inside out and block the airway; and a hypoplastic, or narrowed, trachea. When the nostrils are too small, nasal cartilage is too soft or the airway is blocked, its difficult for the animal to draw breath. Dogs with the combination of a short muzzle and undershot jaw can also have difficulty breathing. A side effect of brachycephalic syndrome is that pets with it have a harder time regulating their body temperature in hot or cold weather. They cant stay outdoors in warm weather, let alone go for a walk. Allergies can worsen the problem.To protect pets with brachycephalic syndrome, its important not to let them get fat or overexert themselves in the heat. They must stay in an air-conditioned environment, and need plenty of shade and fresh water when outdoors. Walking dogs with a harness instead of a collar that puts pressure on the neck can also help them breathe easier. Noisy breathing, gurgling, gasping and a foamy nasal discharge are all signs that a dog is having trouble getting enough air. Other signs of difficulty breathing are fainting and blue gums and tongue, indicating a lack of oxygen in the bloodstream. Left untreated, chronic lack of oxygen puts a serious strain on the heart, and breathing difficulty worsens with age. For dogs with serious respiratory difficulty, surgery can correct stenotic nares, elongated soft palate and everted saccules. A dog who cant walk across the room without turning blue and gasping for air is a clear candidate for reconstructive surgery. Its best if this is done early in life if its obvious that a pet has a problem. When the procedure is performed before the problem becomes serious, it usually has good results. Surgery may be less effective if performed when animals are older. If necessary, stenotic nares and an elongated soft palate can be corrected at the same time. A good time to do it is when the animal is spayed or neutered. Youll be able to hear the difference in breathing immediately after surgery. No one wants to experience the heartbreak of a pet who cant breathe. Animal lovers can help by not purchasing dogs or cats with extreme facial conformation, no matter how cute they are. Breeders can work toward producing animals with not-so-flat faces and larger nostrils that enable them to breathe effortlessly and do all the things a pet should be able to do: chase a toy, walk around the block, play at the beach or compete in dog sports. Animals with excessively flat faces may need special care or even surgery. PET TALESBreathlessShort-nosed dogs and cats often have difficulty breathing.

Orr, OD, MD, MD, OD, OD SWFLEYE.COM CALL TODAY TO SCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT! THE DIVA DIARIESThe cost of beauty just keeps going upIll never forget, as a wee diva, hearing my dear mother say to me, It hurts to be beautiful, dear. She usually said it while tearing a rats nest out of my wet hair with a fine-toothed comb or squeezing a blackhead on my nose. Now that Im adult and know the importance of buying expensive hair conditioner (and facial cleanser), I understand more than ever what my mother meant. Not only does it hurt to be beautiful, there are long-lasting consequences. A research letter recently published in a dermatological trade magazine reported that, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation, going to a tanning booth just once under the age of 35 increases the chance of melanoma by 80 percent. After hearing about that, I got to thinking about all the reckless and painful things I did under the age of 35 in the name of beauty. Quite frankly, its a wonder Im still alive. Growing up in Southwest Florida, I was never a tanning booth aficionado. I mean, seriously, if you live here, whats the point? How tanning booth businesses make money this close to the equator will forever remain a mystery to moi. Still, when I was younger, I gave a booth a whirl a time or t wo, and honestly, lying there in that claustrophobic tube under those buzzing UV lights just felt like cancer to me. No, I was far happier to slather myself in Crisco (Im not lying) and lie on the beach in a string bikini while fanning myself with tin foil for HOURS, baking away, listening to Styx on a transistor radio. Sunscreen? Pshaw! I was never concerned with getting sunburned; my skin would feel like fire for a day or two, but Id be brown as a berry before I knew it. Mission accomplished. Yet, as a result, these days, Im reporting to the dermatologist twice a year with fear in my heart. So far, so good (knock wood). But what was I thinking back in the s? Apparently, I wasnt thinking at all when I decided, in 1985, to add five extra piercings to my right ear using only a sewing needle heated with a Bic lighter along with an ice cube as a numbing agent. All I wanted was that sparkly multiple-earring look that was so popular at the time. By the grace of God, my earlobes didnt get infected and fall off; however, my home piercing job made for lots of swelling, redness and no desire to punch actual sparkly earrings into my painful homemade holes. Lots of peroxide and years of healing later, I have five tiny dimples dotting my right earlobe. Yet it seems, back then, Id do anything in the name of beauty. I recall when I was 19, a friend who was the daughter of a dentist recommended putting Comet on a Q-tip to scrub stains off the front of teeth (she warned not to swallow it). Just FYI, Comet is POISON. And yet, I totally did it. And it seriously worked. But dont do it! Somehow, Im still alive. As far as body beauty goes, when it comes to insane diets, Ive tried every single one: the Cigarette and Diet Coke Diet, which worked super well for me when I was 19 (again, dont do it); the Grapefruit and Water Diet, which I tried for three days in 1990 and lost 10 pounds, but almost fainted near the end of the 72 hours; the Cabbage Soup Diet, which tastes like death and keeps one anchored to the bathroom Ive sampled them all, and again, while they were horrible for my health, I lived. Mom was right. It does hurt to be beautiful. And with the advances we have today, Im thinking it hurts now more than ever. Botox needles in the face? Chemical peels? Liposuction? In 2015, not only does it hurt, its way more expensive to hurt to be beautiful. At least Crisco was cheap. Either way and trust me on this, please be sure to use sunscreen. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

B6-7 Functional medicineA growing number of health-care providers in Southwest Florida are using the approach to find the root causes of chronic disease BY EVAN WILLIAMSewilliams@ oridaweekly.com About half of us suffer from at least one chronic disease, accounting for 86 percent of the health-care cost in this country, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tells us. A growing group of health-care providers are convinced an approach to care called functional medicine will play a leading role in preventing and reversing chronic conditions. Conventional medicine in the United States too often emphasizes a pill for an ill, say doctors who believe in the functional approach, which focuses on finding the root cause of disease in genetics, lifestyle, diet, and environment. Its like a new set of eyeglasses given to a doctor, said Zorayda Jiji Torres, an internal medicine physician who last year opened UpstreamMD, a functional medicine-based practice in Bonita Springs. Its like a new GPS. Its a new way of thinking. Functional medicine aims to combine the best practices of alternative treatments, which have grown more popular in recent years, with those of the conventional medical system in the U.S., and address criticisms of both. That includes weeding out unproven alternative treatments, for instance, and cutting back on prescription medication. Upstream joins PharmiCare, a neighborhood pharmacy in South Fort Myers; Hughes Center for Functional Medicine in Naples; and Restorative Medical Center in North Port as a handful of relatively new local practices that advertise functional medicine consultations and treatment. The approach has also gained traction nationally through Dr. Mark Hyman, a physician who is at the center of its rise Drs. John Dobbs and Stan Headley at PharmiCare, a neighborhood pharmacy that offers functional and naturopathic products and services.SEE MEDICINE, B4
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYB2 BUSINESS WEEK OF JULY 9-15, 2015 MONEY & INVESTINGTax savings and investments for small businessesPeople often ask me what I miss most about working at an investment bank structuring derivatives. Was it the fancy dinners or hobnobbing with CEOs? Was it the excitement of working on the trading floor or solving complex problems with some of the smartest people in the world? The ability to bring down the entire global financial system with a product that no one could understand? No, it was the summer interns. Every summer you had, at your command, a dozen or so college juniors whose whole purpose in life at that moment was to make you like them and want to hire them. I finally understood that expression about power corrupts and absolute power is totally awesome. As Mel Brooks said, Its good to be the king. But besides the summer interns, one thing I missed from working at a big bank was my 401k. It was nice being able to take pre-tax money out of my paycheck and invest it each month. And I absolutely loved the company match where the bank would match some of my IRA contributions dollar for dollar. When I decided to become a small business owner, I thought my days of being able to contribute pre-tax to my retirement and company matches were over. However, I recently became aware of a program where small business owners and employees can do just that with very little fees or setup costs. It is called a SIMPLE IRA and it is a great way to save on taxes while investing for the future.A SIMPLE IRA is designed for small businesses with 100 or fewer employees. In addition, the employer cannot have any other retirement plan. Those are really the only two requirements. And setting up a SIMPLE IRA is really, well, simple. There are no documents that need to be filed with the IRS which is nice. I dont know about you, but I try to limit my interactions with that particular agency of government. All you have to do is go online and print out IRS form 5304-SIMPLE. It is a three page document along with the instructions that go with it. Once the business owner fills out the form establishing the SIMPLE IRA, she just has to keep it in a safe place. Thats it and poof, your small business plan now has a retirement plan.On the 5304-SIMPLE form, there are two primary decisions that the business owner has to make and record. First, the owner has to decide whether all employees are eligible for the plan or just employees over a certain compensation level. Note that the law mandates that the maximum compensation threshold must be $5,000 per year or less so really any employee other than some part-time help will probably be eligible to participate with either choice. The IRS does this so the owner doesnt start a program that only benefits herself without benefiting her employees as well. The second decision on the form involves the companys matching contribution. Just like with a 401k, with a SIMPLE IRA the company contributes to the employees retirement. The first option is to match 3 percent of each employees contribution. So lets say that employee A contributes $1,000 to her SIMPLE IRA in 2015. The employer would then add an additional $30 to that account. But if in 2016, employee A contributed $0, the employer would not match any funds that year. The second match option is to contribute 2 percent of the employees salary (up to $250,000) to the employees IRA, regardless of that employees actual IRA contribution. So if employee A had a salary of $100,000, the employer would contribute $2,000 to the SIMPLE IRA regardless of how much the employee actually contributed to the IRA that year. The benefits of a SIMPLE IRA to an employee of a small business are obvious. They can invest pre-tax money for retirement and get a matching contribution from their employer. But what are the benefits to the business owner? First, it is a relatively low cost benefit for your employees that should help with employee satisfaction and loyalty. Second, if the business is set up as an S Corp, an owner can be considered an employee and can thus get all the benefits of a SIMPLE IRA, including a company match. And that match can be written off as a business expense. Third, there are really no operational costs of a SIMPLE IRA as each employee must set up an IRA account with his or her own brokerage firm. The company does not have the expense of administering the SIMPLE IRA accounts. Plus, many online brokerage firms have no fee SIMPLE IRA accounts so the employees are not hit with an administrative fee either. So, in summary, SIMPLE IRAs are a easy and inexpensive way for both employees and employers to contribute to their retirement in a tax-advantaged manner. Of course, as a small business owner or employee, it is prudent to discuss any retirement planning with your financial advisor. Im sure their summer intern would love pulling an all-nighter to put together a custom pitch book just for you.

These tweaks will change the cost of your annuity, but they may be worth it.For example, a single 65-year-old man paying $200,000 might receive around $1,100 monthly in retirement (thats $13,200 per year). A married 70-year-old couple paying $200,000 might collect around $1,000 monthly, or $12,000 per year.Plunking down more money will offer you more income. Youll receive more or less money depending on your age, gender, location and so on. You might also get a good deal by buying a deferred annuity now that starts paying out in 10 or 15 years.Annuities generally arent FDICinsured, so be sure to buy from an insurance company that you expect to be around for a long time. You might even split your purchase between several companies, to be safe. Note, too, that you might get a better deal when interest rates are higher. So consider waiting a bit, or spacing out several purchases. Learn more before buying, too, because annuities dont typically offer you your money back, unless you pay a penalty. If you can handle more risk, you might build a different source of income, via a bundle of dividend-paying stocks. A key upside to that is that if you can live off the dividends, you can still leave the stocks to your loved ones.Learn more at fool.com/retirement, and get practical advice and investment recommendations via a free trial of our Rule Your Retirement newsletter (details at fool.com/shop/newsletters). Wait for the Big BoardI bought shares of a beverage company whose stock was trading on the pink sheets. Thats apparently a sure way to lose money. I learned that there is a reason companies are trading on the pink sheets none of them good, no matter how good the companies or their promoters can make them seem. This particular company was supposedly working to get onto the Big Board. The moral to the story: Wait until a company gets onto the Big Board, then see if its worth the investment. Stick to good companies and dont waste your time with iffy ones. P., onlineThe Fool Responds: You learned a fine lesson. When a stock doesnt trade on the major exchanges, such as the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) or the Nasdaq Stock Market, it probably doesnt meet their listing requirements. The Big Board is the NYSE, which notes, A listing on the New York Stock Exchange is internationally recognized as signifying that a publicly owned corporation has achieved maturity and front-rank status in its industry in terms of assets (and) earnings Companies that dont make it onto the big exchanges tend to be small, unproven and volatile, sinking many investors. Theyre traded over the counter (OTC) or on the pink sheets. Pink sheet companies dont even have to file financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), making it hard to find detailed information on them. Intel Inside Your PortfolioIntels (Nasdaq: INTC) dominant position in the PC chip business might have you thinking that its in trouble, with PC sales weakening as consumers turn more to smartphones and tablets. But Intel is changing with the times, and with its data centers, has become a significant player in the fast-growing cloud computing arena.In its last quarter, overall revenue was flat year over year, at $12.8 billion, but data center revenue grew by double digits. More specifically, tablet platform unit volume surged 45 percent year over year in its last quarter, while desktop platform unit volume sank by 16 percent. Meanwhile, data center unit volume grew by 15 percent with prices rising by 5 percent, too.Intels most recent big news, though, is that its buying chipmaker Altera for about $16.7 billion its largest purchase ever. Altera specializes in fieldprogrammable gate arrays, or FPGAs, which can help Intels server and data center businesses by speeding up servers and can give it inroads into networking and wireless applications. It plans to integrate FPGAs onto its processor chips, for example. Intels future is not certain, but with annual free cash flow topping $11 billion, a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio in the low teens and a dividend that recently yielded 3 percent, its stock is looking rather appealing. (The Motley Fool has recommended Intel.) I trace my roots back to 1906, when William Riley founded me in Boston in order to manufacture arch supports and orthopedic shoes. I produced my first pair of running shoes in 1938. By the 1950s I was handcrafting customized footwear, and customized sneakers are a big hit for me today. Im now the only major company producing more than 4 million pairs of athletic footwear annually in the U.S. Over the years, my acquisitions have included the Dunham mens casual shoe brand and the Brine athletic supply company. I raked in $2.7 billion globally in 2013. Who am I? (Answer: New Balance) Quick and CurrentQWhat are quick and current ratios? B.W., Saratoga Springs, New YorkATheyre measures of a companys debt level, calculated from its balance sheet. For the current ratio, divide current assets by current liabilities, revealing whether the company has sufficient resources (such as cash and expected payments) to pay its bills over the coming year. The quick ratio, sometimes called the acid-test ratio, is a bit more meaningful, subtracting inventories from current assets before dividing by current liabilities. A result above 1 is good for both ratios, and above 1.5 is better, though a very high number can reflect assets sitting around unproductively. These numbers vary by industry, so compare a company only with its peers or with itself over time to see trends. Declining ratios, for example, can be a red flag. ***QWhat do chief financial officers do? T.Y., Greenwood, South CarolinaAA companys chief financial officer (CFO), such as The Home Depots Carol Tom, Southwest Airlines Tammy Romo and MasterCards Martina Hund-Mejean, is responsible for all things financial, such as determining what the companys financial needs are and will be, deciding how best to finance those needs, and informing all stakeholders (investors, creditors, analysts, employees, management) of the companys financial condition.The CFO also maintains the best mix of internal cash, debt financing and stock financing for the company (this is known as its capital structure). The CFO plans and oversees the forecasting and budgeting process, monitors all cash flow, maintains relationships with funding sources such as commercial and investment banks, and oversees the process of developing and communicating the quarterly and annual financial statements. Finally, the CFO has ultimate accountability for maintaining the books and records of the company. Want more information about stocks?

Rigorous science is behind many alternative treatments that fall under the umbrella of functional medicine, he said. While the Clintons are among a growing group who subscribe to a diet and lifestyle based on functional medicine, Dr. Hyman said, the larger medical establishment in the United States is still catching up with existing and emerging science behind alternative forms of care. Thats where functional medicine brings the future of medicine into the current practice, he said. (It) closes that gap between the science that we have and the medicine we practice.For Dr. Torres, a functional medicine approach is like looking at the whole pizza of care models, she said. For any given patient, one small slice might be acupuncture, another homeopathy, another oriental medicine, another conventional prescription medication or surgery. Her job is figuring out which of the slices will work better to help a person.In functional practices, patients work more in collaboration with health-care providers, and doctors visits are generally longer. An initial consultation with Dr. Torres lasts three hours, for instance. Conventional medicine is great for acute care, she said, Meaning you break a bone, you get surgery, you get rehab, youre well. But in chronic care hypertension, chronic fatigue, high cholesterol, coronary disease, rheumatoid arthritis that model of a pill for an ill doesnt really work.Functional but not mainstream Although functional medicine is far from a mainstream element of doctors practices these days, Dr. Hyman believes that in another 10 years it will be. It took a step toward that goal last September when the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio opened its Center for Functional Medicine, the first time a big teaching and research hospital has embraced the approach, with Dr. Hyman as its director. Cleveland Clinic is really changing mainstream medicine, said Stan Headley, a naturopathic physician with PharmiCare in South Fort Myers. This is going to change the way medicine is practiced. He called functional medicine proactive, preventative, not reactive like our current medical model.In a press release last year, the medical doctor and Cleveland Clinic CEO Toby Cosgrove said, As the incidence of chronic disease continues to mount, we must consider new approaches to understanding and treating diseases. This is not a departure for Cleveland Clinic, but a continuation of the innovative, holistic approach that we have embraced, which includes the establishment of the Wellness Institute, the Center for Integrative Medicine, the Chinese Herbal Therapy Clinic, and the Center for Personalized Healthcare.Functional costCost is one of the biggest hurdles for patients to access functional medicine because many alternative tests and treatments arent covered by insurance plans. Dr. Torres believes that will change. I think insurance companys are finding out theyre spending and yet people are staying sick, she said. While powerful political advocates such as the Clintons could help drive policy change at the national level that supports greater reimbursement, the Cleveland Clinic Centers research will be aimed at supporting such changes as well. One of the centers initial goals, in an effort to prove functional medicines viability in the marketplace to insurance companies and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, is to test conventional protocol for some of the most common chronic illnesses side by side with functional ones. Patients included in the tests, to take place in the centers first three years, include those suffering from asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, type 2 diabetes and migraines. The total cost of care will make a business case possible for changes in reimbursement both at the local level with payer partners and at the national level for reimbursement policy reform, reads the website of the Institute for Functional Medicine, a nonprofit that offers education and certifications for providers, and of which Dr. Hyman is board chair. It also aims to incorporate functional medicine and functional nutrition in undergraduate, graduate and continuing medical education.PharmiCareThere is already a strong market for many vitamins, supplements and procedures incorporated into functional medicine, found John Dobbs. A doctor of pharmacy who formerly worked as the clinical emergency services pharmacist for Gulf Coast Medical Center, he opened PharmiCare in February last year. The neighborhood pharmacy offers functional medicine consults, natural medicine, supplements and health screenings. As one of the few if only local pharmacies to take this approach, Dr. Dobbs said, revenue has more than quadrupled since he opened. Its actually a pretty exciting time for us, tremendous growth, he said.Restorative Medical CenterChristina Parker, a nurse practitioner in North Port, opened Restorative Medical Center, a family practice based on a functional medicine approach, in 2012. I opened this office after working in a traditional medical office and not feeling as if I was really helping anyone, she wrote in an email. I felt like I was just putting a Band-Aid on the patients symptoms and not getting down to the root cause of their ailments. I believe that chronic illness is a combination of nutrition, environment and genetics. I try to heal with alternative therapies, but sometimes traditional medicine is needed. So we offer a combination of both.Hughes Center for Functional Medicine Dr. Pamela Hughes, a doctor of osteopathic medicine, took over the Hughes Center for Functional Medicine in Naples in March, formerly the Perlmutter Health Center. I did traditional medicine for years, Dr. Hughes said. Its what we learned, its what we know. A former emergency room doctor, she discovered functional medicine after researching ways to help get her husband, a war veteran wounded in Afghanistan, off opioid pain medication such as Percocet. His recovery is an example of functional medicine: conventional surgery initially played a key role while alternative or integrated natural medications such as organic sulfur for pain and rhodiola for stress, along with a regimen of other vitamin and nutritional supplements, help keep him healthy now. Upstream Medical ConsultantsWith 17 years of clinical experience diagnosing and treating chronic disease in her patients based on conventional medical practices, Dr. Torres was looking for better methods. I followed the guidelines, they dont get well, she said. And I overmedicate them and they still dont get well. I was truly frustrated. After beginning to study functional medicine four years ago, she attended conferences through the Institute for Functional Medicine to receive certification in the approach. I never studied this as an (internal medicine doctor), even with board exams, she said. In 2014, Dr. Torres opened UpstreamMD, a functional medicine practice, to go upstream and find the causes of chronic illnesses; in general, those lasting 90 days or more. Anything that goes chronic usually needs another way of thinking, she said. Weve got to ask why the problem doesnt go away. The right diet and nutrition is emphasized in functional medicine, which might address a number of problems at once, such as depression and irritable bowel syndrome. We always say food first, meaning as part of your treatment, food is one of your major treatments, she said, adding that functionals holistic approach takes the big picture into consideration. All the organic kale, chai seeds and grass-fed beef at Whole Foods probably wont help much if youre also addicted to crack or for that matter sugar, and heavily processed foods. I cant just say its only food, she said, but food first. We want to make sure theyre eating right. Dr. Zorayda Jiji Torres at her office in Bonita Springs where she practices functional medicine.

As singer/guitarist of the Connecticut-based band Beach Avenue, he appeared on the NBC television talent show Americas Got Talent in 2014.

One for going to the theater, he said, ticking off his first finger. And the museum. The symphony, too. You know, all those cultural things women like to do. After that, he said, a woman needs a man to go shopping, someone who will give her good advice on that cocktail dress or end table. Then she needs a man to handle all the things that need fixing around her house. Hed take out the trash, too. Next, a man whos really good in bed. And lastly, a man she can talk to, someone who will listen to all her problems. I was in my 20s when Ken shared this bit of wisdom, too young to understand what he meant. I figured he was talking in metaphors, implying that women have a lot of different needs and that it would be a challenge to find someone who would make me happy. Now that Im a little older and arguably, wiser I finally see what Ken meant. He wasnt being cryptic; he wasnt speaking in metaphor. He was stating a simple truth: No man is ever going to have all the qualities a woman needs. This particular truism came to mind recently when several of my married girlfriends complained that their husbands arent listening to them. Is he a good provider? I asked one of them. Is he a good father? Is he kind to you? Yes, she said. Yes and yes. Then maybe youre asking too much. She stared at me blankly, as if Id said something in Greek. But I understand her dissatisfaction. For women, listening is fundamental. Its as essential to how we relate to the world as breathing is to life. A man who tiles the bathroom and brings home a paycheck is nice, but in a womans eyes, if he doesnt listen, then nothing else counts. And listening, Ive found from my guy friends, is not always a mans strongest gift. Im always advocating that women learn how to take care of themselves. Why not here, too? My friend Susie in New York has solved this dilemma. How? By finding a good therapist. Sometimes I just need someone to listen to me, Susie told me recently, in a safe place where I can express all my emotions. Its a little like getting a massage, she said. Something nice she does for herself that improves her well being. I laughed; Id never thought of it that way. We tend to treat therapy as a hushhush affair, something only people with real problems do. But I wonder if we wouldnt all be better off if we had someone to talk to, a person without a stake in any of it, someone to make us feel heard. The fact that were paying this person for his or her time is even better, because that way the terms of the exchange are clear. And there are plenty of good therapists out there, many of them men. Now, if only we could find a man to go shopping with us. Artis Henderson is the author of Unremarried Widow published by Simon and Schuster. artis HENDERSONsandydays@floridaweekly.com

Headlining the evening are guitar virtuoso Richard Smith and his cellist wife, Julie Adams. Several local musicians, including harp guitarist Andy Wahlberg and guitarist Jon Garon, will also perform. Show time is 7 p.m. Richard in and of himself is a great show, Mr. Morrison says about Mr. Smith. And he and Julie are actually very funny together. They have a nice little back and forth, and she gigs him pretty good. A native of the United Kingdom, Mr. Smith first picked up a guitar when he was 5 years old and aspired to master the finger-picking stylings of American country legend Chet Atkins. At age 11, Mr. Smith shared the stage with his idol when Mr. Atkins invited him to play at Her Majestys Theater in London. He has since enjoyed international acclaim for his acumen and vast repertoire that encompasses bluegrass, country, jazz, classical styles and many more. Mr. Smith married Ms. Adams in 1999 and moved to Nashville. A classically trained cellist who studied at Interlochen Center for the Arts and the Cincinnati Conservatory, Ms. Adams has played in orchestras around the country and is a highly sought-after session player for albums and film scores. Together, they combine their instruments and talents to create a sound that has been described as emotional, witty and versatile. Mr. Walhberg started playing harp guitar in the 1970s as a teenager and since then has toured extensively, recorded four albums and made hundreds of television and radio appearances. In addition to playing guitar, Mr. Garon runs one of the nations largest online Martin guitar dealerships. Mr. Morrison says the roster for July 18 is still taking shape and promises a diverse and entertaining evening of music. (Mr. Smith) is liable to do some requests and hook it off into jamming (with the other musicians), he says. Pretty much anything you throw at him he can do. Its a treat to have something like this in July in Naples. The performance is free, but reservations are recommended. Call Freds Food, Fun & Spirits at 431-7928. The restaurant is at 2700 Immokalee Road, in the Sams Club plaza. When he was 11 years old, Richard Smith, above, performed with his guitar idol Chet Atkins in London.
www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 9-15, 2015 bank accounts dry, as boats are wont to do. We were just throwing money at rust. Everything on the boat that couldve rusted, rusted. That included the water tanks, the reef hook, the heat exchanger, shackles, turnbuckles, clevis pins, chain plates, backing plates, furler bearings, engine parts, the windless axle. Mr. Waldman was blogging about it for Outside magazine. And then I did that little journalistic thing where I extrapolated my situation and thought: I bet the Navy has bigger problems, he says. And so he went to the Mega Rust conference in Norfolk, Va., where he met the highest-ranked rust official in the land: Dan Dunmire, director ofthe Department of Defenses Office of Corrosion Policy and Oversight. In 2005, Mr. Dunmires office declared corrosion was responsible for $2.4 billion in annual damage to the Navys 256 ships. In 2011, the office announced the direct cost of corrosion to the military as a whole was $21 billion. I met (Mr. Dunmire) and some admirals in the Navy and heard them express the belief that the most powerful navy on earth was losing the fight against rust, Mr. Waldman says. They didnt want more funding. We cant buy our way out of this problem, they said.The cost of rustRust is a universal problem, he says. Everyone has a rust story, whether its their car, their lawn mower, a bicycle chain or a pump in the bottom of a well. Rust costs the U.S. $437 billion a year, which is more than all other natural disasters combined, Mr. Waldman says. Horror-film script writers couldnt come up with a plot as scary as the reality: the insidious and pervasive slow corrosion and eroding of our planet, of cars, planes, ships, bridges, buildings, pipe lines, food containers. So Mr. Waldman wrote a book about it: Rust: The Longest War. You might think a book about such a topic is as interesting as well, watching something rust. Youd be wrong. Rust is as entertaining as it is informative. In a blurb for the book, science writer Mary Roach, known for her humorous bestsellers about cadavers, sex research and the digestive system, calls Rust a remarkable, fascinating book. The clarity and quite wit of Waldmans prose, his gift for narrative, his zeal for reporting, and his eye for detail put him in a class with John McPhee and Susan Orlean. People told Mr. Waldman that rust is just not sexy, putting the subject somewhere between cholesterol and hemorrhoids: somewhat uncomfortable and kind of gross; Can we talk about something else? But, he says, a lot of things are fascinating including rust once you start taking a closer look.A force of natureThough his book includes science and history, it also includes a diehard Star Trek fan, a woman who makes art out of rust and rust boogers in the Statue of Libertys nose. Rust is such a ubiquitous force of nature, he says. Most people, theyre intrigued. If you can get them to open up the cover, they say, I cant imagine this would be so fun or entertaining or curious. Readers and critics agree; Rust has been positively reviewed in the New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal and The Atlantic magazine, among others. Gregory Cowles of the New York Times was so pleased with the book he wrote that, Mr. Waldman makes rust shine. Rust was named a Barnes & Noble Discover Great Writers selection, a Powells New Favorite selection, an Amazon Best Book of the Month and an Editors Big Spring Reads pick. The book examines the problem of corrosion on objects as small as the everyday soda or beer can to ones as monumental as the aforementioned Statue of Liberty. Mr. Waldman attended Can School, observed the shooting of a corrosion video (narrated by LeVar Burton and paid for by the Department of Defense), went to Fairbanks, Alaska, to watch the inspection of the TransAlaska Pipeline and walked through the shuttered Bethlehem Steel mill in Detroit, watching Eve Csk. He even attended a convention of the National Association of Corrosion Engineers. At lot of industries attend, he says. Plumbers do not go, or anyone from the plumbing trade groups, because they make their money on pipes rusting. It is in their interest for pipes to rust Plumbers said: We dont want your solution. But, he points out, A water leak is not that big a deal. But a leaking oil pipe is a huge disaster. Maintenance helpsMr. Waldman wanted to cover a mix of big and little things, he says, acknowledging that there are many people and industries he didnt cover, from bridge inspectors to auto manufacturers. A lot of what I did was where I could get access, he says. He spent half a year writing his proposal, then spent a year and a half writing the book. Although you cant stop rust, there are a handful of approaches you can take to try to slow it down, he says, adding maintenance is of critical importance. When Mr. Waldman does book signings and speaks to groups, hell often tell audiences: Raise your hand if you love to take care of your bike chain. No one does. Thats too bad, he says. Theres something special about an inanimate object, something special about taking care of a thing. Its as cool as taking care of a plant or a cat or dog. Maybe were not developing relationships with the material world any more. The world we built requires our love and care. RUSTFrom page 1 ROBERT BABOIAN / COURTESY PHOTOIn renovating the Statue of Liberty, the National Park Service sought the advice of Robert Baboian, who ran the corrosion lab at Texas Instruments office in Attleboro, Mass. At the end of 1983, he began measuring the thickness of the patina on Lady Libertys copper. Based on his results, he figured her skin would survive 1,000 years.

Wa ld man wante d to c m ix o f bi g and little thin g s, h The pervasive menace Rust has knocked down bridges, killing dozens. It has killed at least a handful of people at nuclear power plants, nearly caused reactor meltdowns and challenged those storing nuclear waste. At the height of the Cold War, it turned our most powerful nukes into duds. It has rendered military jets and ships un t for service, caused the crash of an F-16 and a Huey and torn apart the fuselage of a commercial plane mid ight. In the 1970s, rust was implicated in a number of house res when, as copper prices shot up, electricians resorted to aluminum wires. It slows down container ships before stopping them entirely by aiding in the untimely removal of their propellers. 150 years after massive 10-inch cast iron guns attacked Fort Sumter, rust is counterattacking. Union forces have mobilized with marine-grade epoxy and humidity sensors. Rust causes hundreds of explosions in manholes, blows up washing machines and launches water heaters through the roof. It clogs the nozzles of re sprinkler heads: a double whammy for oxidation. It damages fuel tanks and then engines. It seizes up weapons, manhandles muf ers, destroys highway guardrails and spreads like a cancer in concrete. It has opened up crypts.

Presents org Rialto Beach NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 9-15, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 FLORIDA WRITERSLegal hotshots team up for a scintillating adventure set in Miami Bum Rap by Paul Levine. Thomas & Mercer. 350 pages. Trade paperback, $15.95.Author Paul Levine has done the inevitable in Bum Rap, bringing together the lead players from his two popular series into a slick legal thriller. Steve Solomon, partner of Victoria Lord through Mr. Levines four previous Solomon vs. Lord novels, is arrested for murder. Given the nature of the case, the partners feel that Jake Lassiter (whose series boasts 10 previous titles) is the man for the job as chief counsel for Steve. The interplay among the three throws off plenty of sparks, as does their frantic striving to combat the prosecutions case. Whats going on? Steve had been hired by a gorgeous B-Girl, illegal Russian immigrant Nadia Delova, to help obtain money she is owed by her employer, mobster Nicolai Gorev, who has also locked away Nadias passport. During a meeting in Gorevs office, weapons are drawn and Gorev ends up shot to death. Steves fingerprints are found on the murder weapon, and gunpowder traces are found on him. In a confused panic, Steve confesses to the murder. From various perspectives, the narrative rehearses the facts as alleged by Steve and Nadia (not quite identical) and the facts as used, abused and refused in various iterations of Jakes proposed trial strategy. Though Jake is a stickler for the truth, he is also bent on winning every case and doing all he can for a client. Did Steve pull the trigger accidentally? Did he pull it at all, or did the weapon simply misfire? Do these details make any difference with regard to murder charges if Steve is viewed as Nadias accomplice in a robbery? Can Steve change his story during the trial with any credibility?Slowly, deliberately and with uncanny humor, Mr. Levine uses this case to expose many slippery aspects of the legal system, including laws regarding criminal charges and sentences that seem to contradict one another. The reader is blessed with a device that the author uses to add contextualizing background to the case: the piecemeal presentation of Nadias testimony in an interview with Deborah Scolino, an assistant U.S. district attorney. Ms. Scolino is investigating the Russian mafia-like enterprise that has Gorev as its front man and Benny the Jeweler as the ultimate boss. Nadias testimony reveals the operations of Club Anastasia, run by the Gorev brothers, and the Q&A underscores how Nadias future is governed by how many charges against her will be dropped or reduced in exchange for her testimony against others, including Steve. Illegal immigration, scamming customers who expect sexual favors while running up enormous bar bills with beautiful women, money laundering, and smuggling diamonds all figure in the enterprises under investigation. However, for Jake the case is all about proving Steve innocent. He will somehow use Nadia if he has to she certainly has a much stronger motive than Steve Solomon but hed rather find another way. There is more to enjoy: Romance is in the air. Though she remains faithful to Steve, Victoria becomes more and more attracted to Jake. This proves to be a problem for both of them. Will Jake eventually take advantage of her vulnerability? Youll have to find out for yourself. Another romance, much more sudden, grows out of a Penn sylv ania pretzel manufacturers attraction to Nadia. He moves quickly from being her good times customer to being her suitor and perhaps her husband. An aging Jake Lassiter is still a blessing. Jake stays in good physical condition, remains a sarcastic wise guy, continues to be quick-witted and proves more an attack dog than a counterpuncher. However, his sense of how to conduct himself in life and in court has mellowed, as has his relationship to truth and justice. When he looks at his client, attorney Steve Solomon, he sees the kind of rawness and brashness that will be toned down in time. Jake is considering his future in retirement, which seems to be not so far away. As he handles these subtle changes in his best-selling character, Mr. Levine shows his skills as a writer who reveals his characters through sharp-edged dialogue and convincing excursions into their thoughts and feelings. He sets the action in one of the countrys most intriguing cities. Miami is the place, presented with confident authority and telling detail, and Mr. Levine is the ace. 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. p t n S t philJASONpkjason@comcast.net LEVINE

This week we hear from Chad Washburn of the Naples Botanical Garden about how our grant allowed the Garden to provide therapeutic programs for people with Alzheimers disease and students with special needs. The foundation is pleased to partner with these change makers. If you have ideas and hope for the future, wed love to hear from you at info@ floridacommunity.com or @SWFLCFnd on Twitter.Every Thursday morning, a group of gardeners gathers around a table at Naples Botanical Garden to discuss a plan for the days work. Dressed in bright green uniform shirts with clippers in hand, the gardeners make decisions ranging from the design of a new chocolate-themed planting to who is responsible for pinching back the fragrant herbs this week. These gardeners are responsible for ensuring that the Buehler Family Foundation Enabling Garden is in world-class shape for visitors; however, gardening is not the main reason they are here. These eight high school students from Jacqueline Williams special-needs class are just one of the many groups here to learn skills necessary to be successful in the workplace. Each month, 16 exceptional students come to the Garden through a partnership with Collier County Public Schools. Guided by a job coach and the Buehler Enabling Garden program coordinator, they are learning the skills necessary for a successful transition to the workplace. The goal of the program is to empower students by improving their opportunities to gain meaningful employment after gra duation. In addition to learning the skills needed for the workplace, the program helps the students identify their strengths and interests, improves personal and social skills, and reinforces daily living skills in a positive and welcoming environment. Gigi, a recent graduate of the program, has been growing radishes and moon flowers at home for a month in hopes of expanding her very own garden. Kristy Burke Graham, Gigis mother, said the program has been life-changing for both Gigi and herself. While in the program, I saw Gigis confidence come back and now she is ready and wants to explore the real world. G h t J j s chadWASHBURNDeputy Director, Naples Botanical Garden SEE GIVING, C9

The weeks end could bring an invitation from a most surprising source. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Mixed signals could create a few stressful moments for the Lion. But by midweek, explanations should help ease the tension. The weekend is party time! Share it with someone special. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) This is a good catching up week for finishing tasks, calling old friends and maybe reading that book you havent opened yet or renting that movie you wanted to see again. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Money matters should be worked out, even if it takes time away from a more romantic situation. Better to settle things before feelings turn hard and angry on all sides. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A job-related problem could turn out to be less troublesome than it seemed at first. Just a few moments of talk twixt the parties resolves everything to everyones satisfaction. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) The Sagittarian Archer takes aim at health and fitness issues this week. Watch your diet, and try to put more exercise time into your typically busy schedule. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) As you continue to focus on a career or job change, its a good time to look over some of your rarely used skills and see where they can fit into your future workplace plans. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A loved ones health might be worrisome, but theres good news by midweek. Expect people who share your ideas and your goals to try to contact you by the weeks end. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A colleagues request that makes the typically perceptive Pisces feel uncomfortable is a request you probably will want to turn down. The weekend favors family get-togethers. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Starting something new is always exciting for the adventurous Aries. And heres the good news: This time you might be able to get some assistance in helping you finish what youve started. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Put your daydreaming penchant on hold for now, and face the facts as they are, not as youd like them to be. Your customary hardheaded approach to deals, etc., is called for. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Problems beyond your control might delay some of your plans. But things should start to get back to normal by midweek. The weekend could bring an unexpected (but welcome) visitor. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for making others feel warm and wanted. Even newcomers will feel like old friends. PUZZLES
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 9-15, 2015 C13 Be yourself; everyone else is already taken. Oscar Wilde The Promenade 26841 South Bay Drive Suites 150 & 151 (Near Roys Restaurant) Bonita Springs, FL 34135 239.221.3282 CONTRACT BRIDGEA matter of good technique BY STEVE BECKERThis deal comes from a rubberbridge game. Souths bidding certainly left something to be desired, but, since the final contract was reasonable and he made the slam, we need not belabor the point. West led the diamond jack, and the outcome hinged on declarers play to the first trick. Had he let the jack ride, East would have taken the king and returned a diamond to put the slam down one. But South recognized the implicit danger of the lead and put up dummy's ace. Moreover, he thoughtfully dropped his queen on the ace, and it was only this careful combination of plays that enabled him to make the slam. South next drew four rounds of trumps and cashed the A-Q of hearts before leading a diamond to the 10-9. East could do no better than take his king and return a spade. Declarer won with the ace, crossed to dummy with a diamond and discarded two spades on the K-J of hearts to finish with 12 tricks. Now lets suppose declarer had not played the diamond queen on the ace. In that case, he would have gone down at least one, assuming proper defense. Thus, if he drew trumps, cashed the A-Q of hearts and then led the queen of diamonds, East would refuse to win the trick, and South would finish down two, losing two spades and a diamond. And, if declarer instead led a low diamond rather than the queen, East would, of course, take the king, and again South would go down two. By dropping his queen under the ace, declarer assured the slam regardless of how the adverse cards were divided or how the defenders played. The unblock guaranteed scoring four heart tricks by creating a sure entry to dummy later in the play.
NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYC14 WEEK OF JULY 9-15, 2015 FILM CAPSULESTerminator: Genisys (Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Arnold Schwarzenegger) John Connor (Mr. Clarke) sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back in time to protect Johns mother (Ms. Clarke). This is not just a standard redo of James Camerons The Terminator (1984). Although the story is quite clever, the action is disappointingly underwhelming. Rated PG-13.Magic Mike XXL (Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello, Jada Pinkett Smith) Three years after Mike (Mr. Tatum) leaves the stripper life behind, he reunites with his boys for one last show at a stripper convention in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Its uneven but ultimately satisfying in terms of showmanship and story. Rated R.The Overnight (Adam Scott, Taylor Schilling, Jason Schwartzman) New to Los Angeles, Alex (Mr. Scott) and Emily (Ms. Schilling) accept a dinner invitation from bohemian Kurt (Mr. Schwartzman), not realizing the awkwardness that lies ahead. Its an interesting idea, but the inability to balance comedy and drama inhibits the film from strongly making its points. Rated R.Ted 2 (Mark Wahlberg, Amanda Seyfried, voice of Seth MacFarlane) Ted (Mr. MacFarlane) and Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth) are married and want to adopt, but need a lawyer (Ms. Seyfried) to prove Ted is a real person before they can do so. This sequel to the 2012 hit is funnier and a better overall movie than its predecessor, which is saying something. Rated R.Max (Robbie Amell, Lauren Graham, Thomas Haden Church) A Texas family welcomes in the Belgian Malinois dog that accompanied their now-deceased Marine Corps son in Afghanistan, but people around the family cause trouble. Sappy and sentimental, its something that belongs on the Hallmark Channel, not the big screen. Rated PG. Inside Out (Voices of Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Mindy Kaling) The emotions of an 11-yearold girl, including Joy (Ms. Poehler), Fear (Mr. Hader) and Disgust (Ms. Kaling), take center stage as the girl moves to San Francisco. The latest from Pixar Animation, its tender with its heart in the right place, but not as funny as youd expect. Rated PG. Jurassic World (Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins) A genetically modified dinosaur gets loose and endangers everyone at an island-based amusement center, including the operations manager (Mr. Howard) and a Velociraptor whisperer (Mr. Pratt). The action and effects are fine, but not impressive enough to justify a trip back to the park. Rated PG-13.Entourage 1/2(Adrian Grenier, Jeremy Piven, Kevin Dillon) Movie star Vinnys (Mr. Grenier) directorial debut stresses out studio boss Ari (Piven), while other members of Vinnys entourage get into trouble of their own. Its an amusing bit of showbiz buffoonery, much more accessible to fans of the show than newbies like myself. Rated R.

NoAll I knew about the late Amy Winehouse going into Amy was that she was a soulful singer with substance abuse problems and beehive hair who once ironically had a hit song called Rehab. What I learned while watching Amy, a documentary about her life and career from director Asif Kapadia (Senna), is that she never wanted to be famous and had terrible taste in men. This doesnt give much reason to recommend the film to anyone who isnt already an Amy Winehouse fan. Worse, at 128 minutes long the film is far too repetitive, seemingly dwelling on her unhappiness as a way of inflicting a similar emotion on its audience. If theres one thing you leave Amy with, its a morose feeling of gratitude that youre not Amy Winehouse. Who was she? Where did she come from? What were her friends and family like? What inspired her? All are answered, and throughout I struggled for a reason to care. Surely someone whod been so popular would have some fascinating characteristics, but as rendered in this doc, Ms. Winehouse is onedimensional: All she wants to do is write and sing, she couldnt handle fame, her personal life was a mess and she abused various substances. Thats the entire movie, with those four elements repeated ad nauseam. When asked after she signed her first record deal if she thinks shell be famous, Ms. Winehouse responds, I dont think I could handle it. Id probably go mad. History suggests these foreboding words were at least partially true, making Ms. Winehouse and Amy a cautionary tale for all current and future celebrities. But Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and other musicians have already taught this lesson. How many people it has saved is unknown, but what makes Ms. Winehouses story especially sad is that she was aware of her demons and couldnt control them (she was also bulimic and on antidepressants starting when she was a teenager). Thats the most dangerous part about addiction: It cannot be controlled without help, and Ms. Winehouse could never get enough help to make a difference, largely because two of the people closest to her her father Mitchell and boyfriend/husband Blake Fielder-Civil were more avaricious than loving. Perhaps, deep down, she didnt want help. Her best writing came when she was intoxicated, and the recognition and money she received for her work became validation and acceptance for a shy girl from North London who never aspired to amount to anything. Thus shes caught in a vicious circle of success and substance abuse, all the while lacking the sense of self that would have been necessary to move beyond her lot in life to a better, safer place of happiness. For perspective, the director includes interviews with Ms. Winehouses friends, family and professional counterparts, as well as with Ms. Winehouse herself. As they lend insight into her youth, family life, desires and more, you quickly realize shes an impulsive personality with a proclivity to addictive behavior, a dangerous mix for someone who has more money than she can imagine. Worse, due in part to the abandonment issues she faced after her father left her and her mother for another woman when Amy was 18 months old, she repeatedly makes terrible decisions regarding men, especially Mr. Fielder-Civil, who openly mooches her money and keeps her addicted to various drugs, including heroin. As depicted here, Mr. Fielder-Civil is a scumbag loser who was the worst thing to ever happen to Ms. Winehouse yet she loved him more than she ever did anyone or anything else. He also was the fuel to some of her best work, specifically the Black To Black album, which prompted her to be reminded of him every time she hit the stage. To say she had self-defeating tendencies would be an understatement. Fans of Ms. Winehouse will likely want to see her in the intimate private moments, the archival video footage and the previously unreleased music thats included in Amy. But if youre not familiar with her work and career, its hard to imagine being intrigued by her journey, as its full of little besides despair. >> Amy Winehouses blood-alcohol level was ve times above the legal limit when she died of alcohol poisoning in July 2011. c W m p a dan HUDAKwww.punchdrunkmovies.com

Our ancestors recycled and reused precious pieces of fabrics, broken dishes and glass, iron, tin and more. Until the mid1850s, textiles often were woven on a loom at home. For most families there was no nearby store with a replacement, and no way to order something to be delivered until Victorian times. Someone probably a talented housewife stitched a decorative panel of the silk bands that came on cigars (see photo next page). The bands were pieced together and then fringe was added. Because cigar bands are very small, they were not often re-used. Todays collectors of advertising, cigarrelated items and quilts would want this unusual piece. It was made in the midto late 19th century. And although it only was a 23-inch square mounted in a 32-inch metal frame, it sold at Brunk auction in Asheville, N.C., for $1,200 last March. Q: I have a 5-inch Hummel pitcher in the shape of a monk who happens to have crossed eyes. I believe this is a mistake. I was told that the factory had a recall on them and that only five remained. My family has all five. Can you tell me if these really are a rare find, and how much they are worth? A: Germanys Goebel Porcelain Factory introduced the popular Friar Tuck series in the early 1950s. About 125 everyday table items were made, from sugars and creamers to toothpick holders. Your pitcher is one of the No. 141 line of four pitchers that were made in graduated sizes from 2 inches to 8 inches. Older models of the No. 141 pitchers were made, intentionally, with crossed eyes. While they are more rare than pitchers with regular eyes, the rarity is minimal for collectors and they sell for only a few dollars more. Your pitchers are worth about $25 to $30 each.Q: I have a coffee or teapot, creamer and sugar set that I think is made of pewter. The pieces are marked on the bottom Jennings Bros., Bridgeport, Co., 1890 and 6. Are they of any significant value? A: Jennings Bros. Mfg. Co. was founded by Edward, Erwin and Henry Jennings in Bridgeport, Conn., in 1890. The company made metal objects in pewter, silver plate, gold plate and with brass or bronzed finish. The 6 probably is a catalog or factory number. When the company closed in 1953, the molds were bought by another company that made cheaper replicas. Your set is worth about $100 to $150.Q: When my mother married in 1952, two aunts bought her a set of Fiesta dinnerware. It had four place settings, each in a different pastel color. She never used the dishes. They are in the original

This panel made of almost 100 19th-century silk cigar bands sold in March 2015 for $1,200 at auction in Asheville, N.C.carton. How much is the set worth?A: The colorful Fiesta dinnerware was introduced in 1936 by Homer Laughlin China Co. of Newell, W. Va. Original Fiesta colors were blue (cobalt), red, light green, ivory and yellow. Turquoise followed in 1937. In 1951, the company discontinued the original blue, light green and ivory, continued to use turquoise and yellow, and added the softer colors of chartreuse, gray, rose and forest green. Called Fiestas Fifties colors, these were used until 1959. The Fiesta line was retired in 1972, but Homer Laughlin Co. started making the dishes again in 1986 in new colors: black, white, apricot and cobalt blue. Vintage Fiestaware of the 1930s to s is more valuable than pieces made since 1986. There are auctions and websites that specialize in Fiestaware theres even a Facebook page where you can learn more about the age and value of your set. The carton adds value.

This time, he didnt get cut in the preliminary rounds. He didnt get voted out in the early rounds that were televised during the shows recently completed season 14. He didnt get voted down at all. Mr. Fradiani emerged as the champion, taking the crown in the final over Clark Beckham. Winning Idol was about the last thing crossing Mr. Fradianis mind when he decided to audition. He was actually approached during his time on Americas Got Talent by some personnel who had connections with Idol. They promised him he could get in front of some executive producers of Idol and avoid the standard cattle-call audition. Still, he was lukewarm to the idea. Besides, Beach Avenue was making progress, having released a couple of EPs and starting to build a following around the Northeast. I said no at first because of the band, he said of the invitation to audition. And then I talked to some family and friends and they were like, man, this could be something you regret I kept fighting it and then I was like, Why not? Its amazing how a decision like that can change your whole life. Now hes busy co-writing songs for his debut album and rehearsing for American Idol Live, the tour that for years has followed the completion of each season of Idol. The show comes to the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall on Sunday, July 12. As this seasons Idol champion, Mr. Fradiani has a featured role, performing his own set near the end of the evening. This years tour is different from the previous outings in two major ways. Instead of featuring the latest seasons top 10 finalists, as the earlier tours have done, the current outing includes only the top five finishers. Mr. Fradiani thinks the change makes for a better show because each performer has more time on stage. Youre going to really get to see us as the artists were trying to be outside of the show, he said. And it will be a little more intimate As for his part, hell do Beautiful Life, his current single, as well as a song he wrote before the Idol competition. Ill talk about why I chose some of the songs. I just think youre going to feel more connected to the contestants than you were in years past or from just watching the show. Some of the intimacy of this years show will come from the other major change in the tour. Instead of visiting arenas, American Idol Live, for the most part, is booked into theaters and halls. The smaller venues would seem to be another outcome of the declining popularity of the long-running show, which at its peak was easily the most popular show on television, reaching more than 30 million viewers for season finales for seasons four through seven. By contrast, season 14s finale in May drew little more than 8 million viewers. American Idol producers have announced that next season will mark the end of the show. Theyve promised it will be a unique season for Idol, one that will have an element of celebrating the shows history, while also having contestants vie for the final American Idol crown.

In its early years, the show lived up to its promise of being a star-making endeavor, producing three bona-fide stars in Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson. And other Idol alumni, including Phillip Phillips, Chris Daughtry, Adam Lambert, Scotty McCreery, Ruben Studdard and Jordin Sparks, have had considerable success. But the winners from the previous two seasons Caleb Johnson and Candice Glover whiffed with their debut albums, while three other champions, David Cook, Kris Allen and Lee DeWyze, have not sustained the decent success they enjoyed with their debut albums. Mr. Fradiani thinks he has one major advantage over recent Idol champions: the enthusiastic support of his record label, Big Machine, and its president, Scott Borchetta. Big Machine became the new record label partner of Idol for season 14, after RCA/19 Entertainment had served in that capacity for the first 13 seasons. Mr. Fradiani thinks Big Machine is more invested in his future than RCA/19 might have been with some of the other recent Idol winners. This guy (Mr. Borchetta) is not a guy who likes to lose. Hes a very, very competitive guy, he said. So he wants this to work just as much as I want this to work, and thats huge.

CELEBRITY EXTRAMaverick to fly again in Top Gun sequel BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: I read in a previous column that there was going to be a Top Gun sequel. Do you know if Tom Cruise will be a part of the project? Danny J., via emailA: All signs point to yes. Top Gun 2 producer David Ellison revealed during a press junket for Terminator Genisys that Justin Marks is writing the screenplay right now. He has a phenomenal take to really update that world for what (the idea of) fighter pilots in the Navy has turned into today. There is an amazing role for Maverick in the movie, and there is no Top Gun without Maverick, and it is going to be Maverick playing Maverick. We are very, very hopeful that we get to make the movie very soon. But like all things, it all comes down to the script. He went on to reveal that drone technology will play a role in the sequel, stating: When you look at the world of dogfighting, whats interesting about it is that its not a world that exists to the same degree when the original movie came out. This world has not been explored. Q: Oh no! I just heard that NBC canceled Hannibal! Sara F., via TwitterA: NBC has indeed canceled the prequel series to the feature film Silence of the Lambs. NBC will show all of season three, with the last episode scheduled to air Aug. 27. However, dont despair just yet. Hannibal creator Bryan Fuller said he is shopping the series around to different outlets, most likely Amazon Prime. The show currently has a contract for seasons one through three with the online streaming service, so it would make sense for a possible season four to air there. Bryan also said that with the online-streaming method of releasing an entire season at once, it could present an opportunity to do something new with the show.

It doesnt have to be boozy, and agua frescas are a perfectly respectable solution to the dehydration and unrelenting heat we Floridians are suffering through right now. These light, refreshing concoctions are popular in Latin America and the Caribbean particularly Mexico where residents are pros at weathering stifling temps. As a drink whose name literally means cool water, its not surprising that recipes are very simple, requiring little more than juice, water and sugar. Popular varieties are watermelon, tamarind, hibiscus, papaya and other tropical fruits. Sometimes, grains are used to make a creamier version of the drink. Horchata, a milky concoction made with rice and spices, is found throughout Latin America in a variety of forms. To beat the heat, take a quick culinary tour of the tropics with this recipe that will leave you cool as a cucumber by the time you reach the bottom of your glass. Cucumber Mint Lime Agua Fresca Ingredients: pound cucumber, ends trimmed cup fresh limejuice cup mint leaves, packed 1/3 cup panela (unrefined, whole cane sugar), shredded* 5 cups water Cucumber slices and mint leaves for garnish Panela can be found in the ethnic foods section of the grocery store Directions: Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.

The Hours: 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily The Details: I dont find myself driving down the East Trail terribly often, but when I do, I always pass an inconspicuous little Mexican restaurant that Ive wanted to visit for years. Its one of those places I see and think, Ive got to try that place one day. Well, I did it. I had a light(ish) lunch for the low, low price of $6 and had two of the best tacos ever in return. The Barbacoa Taco offered seasoned and barbecued beef, which was awesome, but the standout was the Taco al Pastor. The chef left just enough fat on the pork to make the filling taste like meat candy. Though I wouldnt necessarily call it sweet, the pork certainly had a roundness and depth that hinted at the traditional pineapple marinade in which Im sure it had spent a lengthy time. Eventually, Im going to return and have a full-on meal. It just might consist strictly of Tacos al Pastor. One More Thing: El Rincon de Mexico offers at least a dozen types of traditional taco fillings, from tripe and tongue to pig snout which are all the best kinds, by the way.

Theyre up, theyre down, in fashion and out of fashion. One day everybodys drinking Chenin Blanc, and a few months later its all Pinot Grigio. Ros wines are sort of like that. They were extremely popular in the mid-1950s and have come back strong of late, partly because thats just the way things work, but mostly because new offerings are coming onto the market, providing wine lovers (thats us) with interesting and unique flavors and sensations. After all, if Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie can spend $60 million to buy a vineyard in France just to make ros wines, how bad can they be? Unfortunately, the pink wine that most readily comes to mind for most of us is the inevitable sweetish, low-alcohol white Zinfandel. In 2014, more than 7.7 million cases were sold in the U.S. (less than previous years) but its still a biggie. However, were interested in more serious stuff. And now that summer is upon us, lets not turn to those traditional light whites as our first sipping solution. For picnic purposes, we can forsake the traditional Pinot Grigio and enjoy the many ros wines on the shelf that give us bright refreshing flavors, plus a really pretty pink liquid to look at while we sip. First of all, there are two ways to make ros wines. You can mix a white and red together. Indeed, many big red wines contain a percentage of white, like Australian Shiraz, which is often enhanced by about 5 percent Viognier, a white grape. The second, more legitimate way, is the saignee method. You crush red grapes, leave the juice on the skins until it just turns pink, then drain it off. Thats the kind well discuss here. Ros can be made from just about any red grape. It is also made in an incredibly wide range of styles because its entirely the winemakers choice as to how long the juice stays on the skins, how dark it gets, and when its drained away. Thats why its critical to drink a lot of wine, to sample widely, and find producers who make wine in a style you enjoy. In a way, the spiritual home of ros wine as a specific type is the area around Tavel and Lirac in Provence. These are tiny areas, just north of Avignon, and Tavel is the only appellation in the Rhone that produces ros wines exclusively. The ross in this area are based primarily on Grenache and Syrah, but tradition allows several other grapes as minor components of the blend. In other parts of the world, as mentioned ab ove, just about any red grape can be used. The flavors of ros wines are traditionally light, because its long-term contact with the skins that makes red wine big and bold. But thats OK, because these delicate flavors are perfect not only for summer sipping, but also for pairing with a wide range of foods and cheeses. The flavor profiles will be the same as the major grape in the blend, but lighter and more delicate. In my last column we reviewed the enjoyable Mulderbosch ros made from Cabernet Sauvignon. Here are some other examples that will give you a wide range of choices and pleasures. Sample widely. Melior de Matarromera Cigales Ros 2013 (80 tempranillo/20 verdejo) Bright deep pink in the glass, the Melior offers sweet fruit flavors with honey and notes of red flowers. Its a dry style, with some spice on the long finish. WW 90 Otazu Merlot Ros 2014 A favorite at our sampling session. Its a very rich rose color in the glass with ruby highlights. Jammy strawberry and raspberry flavors make this wine surprisingly rich for a ros. WW 93 Waxwing Blair Vineyard Arroyo Seco Pinot Noir Rose 2014 Winemaker Scott Sisemore (and well review some of his other wines at a later date) crushes whole Pinot Noir clusters, with no destemming. The juice stays on the skins for only an hour or two before racking and fermenting in stainless steel. The result is a very light salmon color with aromas and flavors of roses and rose petals. About $23. WW 91. Have questions about the world of wine? Write me at vino@floridaweekly. com. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 9-15, 2015 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C27 CUISINETarpon Bay at the Hyatt serves a bounty of fresh, albeit pricey, seafoodBecause we live here and probably dont often check into local hotels, its easy to forget that some very fine restaurants permanently reside at area resorts. The Hyatt Regency at Coconut Point Resort & Spa, for instance, has devoted thousands of square feet to provide an array of distinctive dining environments indoors and out. Tarpon Bay alone is a sprawling warren of rooms with a beach cottage vibe, all sunand sand-washed ivory from the tables and chairs to the walls and rafters. The neutral canvas makes an effective backdrop for dramatic Clyde Butcher prints in the room where we were seated. Steel drum and salsa music added to the coastal island charm. Its easy to pretend youre on vacation like most of the other patrons, even if its just for a couple of hours. Of course, even a pretend getaway comes at a price as in $30-$40 entres and sides that are served a la carte. The cost of three coconut shrimp alone at Tarpon Bay would buy you a pound of gulf pinks at your neighborhood seafood market. Considering the restaurants price points, its surprising how ordinary the wine selections are. Bottles include familiar labels such as Kendall-Jackson, Cakebread, Rodney Strong. We opted for glasses of Murphy-Goode Fume Blanc ($10) and Estancia Pinot Noir ($12), both of which are solid if commonplace supermarket options. We sipped them while enjoying good bread served with a bowl of briny olive tapenade, which arrived soon after we were seated. One feature unique to Tarpon Bay is its ceviche bar, which was serving up interesting combinations of citrusmarinated seafood well before the wave of Peruvian and other South American restaurants started popping up around Southwest Florida with the dish. From the eight variations available, we chose a flight of three for $12 (you can sample the whole list for $23). They come in small cups with a basket of various chips for scooping. Our favorite version paired rough-chopped scallops with thinly sliced celery and radishes and laced lemony oil; fennel pollen added a lovely hint of anise to complement the sweet shellfish and peppery radishes. The calamari ceviche had remarkably tender rings of squid dressed with a sweet-tart-spicy combo of honey, guava and jalapenos. The shrimp version was less remarkable, tasting like a watery salsa with shellfish tossed in. The aforementioned coconut shrimp ($13) were butter flied jumbos with a crispy coat of flaky breading. Price-perpiece aside, it was a good rendition of this classic appetizer. The shrimp were not overcooked, and we liked the limey remoulade provided for dipping. Courses were well timed, and our server was efficient and friendly. A manager was highly visible, too, stopping at our table three times before perhaps realizing he was overdoing it. For entrees, non-seafood options include barbecued chicken, filet mignon and quinoa risotto. But with the wealth of fish and shellfish on the menu, it made sense to stick with the bounty of the sea. From the eight a la carte specialty catches, offered with choice of eight sauces, I ordered the wahoo ($30) with corn and pepper emulsion. The heartshaped steak had a hashtag of bronze grill marks and was perfectly moist and flaky. The bright orange sauce, served on the side, added a smoky sweetness that enhanced the mild fish. Sides are $4 extra, whether you choose mascarpone and sweet corn risotto or house fries. The blackened kale I picked had no blackening seasonings; it tasted more like kale sauted with shallots. From the signature dishes, the Tarpon seafood linguini ($34) was a highlight. The dish was loaded with treasures of the sea: chunks of moist grouper, small clams, several large shrimp and lots of bay scallops. A simple scampi-style sauce with red and yellow grape tomatoes tossed in allowed the seafood to remain at the forefront of the dish and made for tasty bread dipping. Compared to the rest of the menu, desserts are affordably priced. Go with the strawberry shortcake ($8), two rounds of lemony chiffon cake layered with fluffy mascarpone cream, macerated strawberries and balsamic glaze. Less impressive was Cookies and Milk ($8), which sounded like a novel idea but fell short in execution. It consisted of ice cream (the milk) accompanied by four breakfast-cereal-based cookies, such as corn flake-marshmallow cookies and puffed-rice peanu t butt er squares. The Capn Crunch cookie tasted of stale cereal, and simply plopping Cheerios on top of a snickerdoodle is kind of a halfbaked idea, if youll pardon the pun. It might be good enough for the kiddies, but theyre not footing the bill. Tarpon Bay is admittedly a bit of a splurge, which we knew going in. Still, at these prices they should be able to throw in a fistful of greens without charging extra, like some swank steakhouses do. For resort guests, add-ons might go unnoticed in the blur of vacation fun, but locals might find them reason enough to book elsewhere.

DESIGNER Q&A FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com JULY 2015 LUXE LIVING 3E ver the dapper gentleman, Domnick Minella adds a lifetime of experience to the design team at Norris Furniture & Interiors. This career designer has been a member of the National Interior Design Society since 1979; in 2011 he served as national chairman and currently serves on its executive board. Known for his expertise in lighting, color and accessorizing, Mr. Minella has a talent for incorporating dramatic changes to dated designs and uplifting otherwise dreary spaces. Which designs is he glad to see exit the design stage, and what are some of his favorite designs? He gave us the answers to those questions and more. Q: What is your favorite design trend right now?A: What makes the interior design business interesting is the constant change in trends including color, fabrics and finishes. My favorite today is the new transitional style that is a blend of traditional and modern elements. Sofas have lost their skirts to shaped wooden legs, and sofa arms have transformed using clean, straight or sloped silhouettes to create a more casual yet sophisticated design.

4 LUXE LIVING JULY 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYDESIGNER Q&ADESIGNERFrom page 3Q: Which designs are you glad have gone by the wayside?A: Florida is about color with sunny bright prints, cool water blues and dashes of coral. I dont believe that the old-world neoclassic design with heavy dark patterns ever really fit our area. Faux finishing in dark textures is now a thing of the past, replaced by a resurgence of beautiful wall coverings in an array of fresh colors and patterns. Heavy wall-to-wall drapery is updated with clean, printed panels hung to the sides of windows using new sheer-style Hunter Douglas blinds for light control and energy efficiency.Q: What design periodicals should we be reading for inspiration?A: Architectural Digest, Elle Dcor, House Beautiful and Southern Living all have inspirational photos and articles to help you stay current in the interior design field. Online sites like Zite also can be great places to visit for ideas. Q: What do you have in your own home?A: No one knows your style better than you. However, as a designer, selecting pieces for my own home is always harder than choosing for a client. At the High Point Market in North Carolina, I was inspired by the Chaddock furniture company with beautiful transitional designer rooms presented by Larry Laslo and David Easton. Having a background from the Midwest, I still feel comfortable in our traditional home design. Our dining room includes a two-tone table with warm cherry and a black base, an antiqued white glass-front china cabinet and classic bow-back Windsor chairs. A Chippendale camelback sofa in a large classic plaid is in the office, and small-scaled wing chairs in combination cotton prints are placed in front of the living room French doors. Glazed antiqued white painted wainscoting completes the commons area. Our library has wood plank floors accented by an area rug, with a bunfooted leather sofa and shaped nail head chairs. A few antique pieces and lots of books and accessories give our home a cozy feeling. Q: What have been some of your most challenging projects?A: One of the most difficult challenges in designing was my experience with the Jesuits at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wis. They had a committee of five priests who all had different ideas of what they wanted. I was chosen to redo their living area and several small rooms used for consultations. Floor planning was the easiest task; choosing fabrics, paint colors, tables and lighting was a test of both my patience and fortitude. Making sure all the committee members liked the design was daunting, but after several months we all came to terms, and the project was a success. Q: What is your favorite over-the-top interior?A: That would be the Hearst castle in California. Elaborately wrapped wood walls and ceilings from Europe adorn many areas throughout the castle. The grand dining room includes a huge trestle table with 30 armchairs balanced by beautiful antique tapestries covering the walls. And the gold inlaid mosaic flooring of the crystal clear indoor pool is spectacular.Q: What are some of your tips and tricks for designing a home?A: First and foremost, determine a plan of action based on your wants and needs. Once you have found the perfect home, your attention can move to furnishing the interior. Work from a floor plan and choose your colors starting with tile, wood or carpet for the flooring, then kitchen and bathroom cabinets and solid surfaces. Confer with your designer before selecting a paint color, because color choice is a big factor in the interior design scheme. Furniture selection also takes time. Other selections will include wall coverings and lighting fixtures and floor receptacles, along with window coverings to shield your homes interior from Floridas harsh sunlight. Make sure everything is in writing to avoid costly upgrades and change orders. A model walkthrough with your designer before you start planning is also recommended.

6 LUXE LIVING JULY 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYDESIGN MAKEOVER A beautiful lifeMakeover magic takes bayfront condo from dated to dazzlingThis months makeover designer is a bit of celebrity in the residential design/remodeling business well beyond Naples, where her touch is reflected in homes from Port Royal and Pelican Bay to Wyndemere and Grey Oaks. Abbie Sladick of Abbie Joan Fine Living was selected by Remodeling magazine to join the Remodeling Big 50 as one of the countrys best remodeling companies. We make the remodeling process a pleasure by being committed to exceptional experiences and outst anding outcomes, Ms. Sladick, whose business has been based in Naples for the past 15 years, says. One of the biggest things for which Abbie Joan Fine Living is known is its owners follow through, which continues past the sale and construction to the concierge services she offers after projects are complete. Whether shes doing a whole-house reno or a single bathroom makeover, Its about helping clients create a home that is the perfect balance between style and function, she says. The Abbie Joan Fine Living slogan Build a beautiful life perfectly matches the end products of Ms. Sladicks remodeling efforts, one of the most recent of which was a floor-to-ceiling project in every room of a bayfront condominium on Parkshore Drive. My clients had rented in this condo complex for a few years and loved the view and the people, she says. There was a unit that had started being remodeled without a permit or condo association approval. The county stopped construction mid-stride, citing many areas of work done incorrectly. Ms. Sladicks clients purchased the unit when the owners decided to sell instead of hiring a licensed and insured contractor. Fortunately, the clients were astute enough to see past the mess and the closed-in floor plan and envision the possibility of charm and elegance to come. We opened the kitchen and enclosed the terrace, and the result was a spectacular open floor plan that lives large and gracious, the designer says. Dark and depressing, the original condo was made more so by an odd layout.

DESIGN MAKEOVER FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com JULY 2015 LUXE LIVING 7of white to created an energetic yet soothing space. The new kitchen is in stark contrast to the old, with bright white cabinetry and two bright green barstools at a glass-top counter in front of a window. Even the guest bathroom became a joyous space, thanks to a rich red/pink countertop and matching frame around the mirror. Shades of green with fresh white turned the guest bedroom into a little oasis. The guest shower received its own treatment with dots of strategically placed color to keep it looking spacious, but adding just enough charm. A spiral piece of art in the hallway is striking but doesnt detract from the simple white double doors. Quaint white chairs with splashes of red color add a touch of whimsy. One of the special challenges for Ms. Sladick occurred because despite their desire to enclose the terrace in glass, the client still wanted the ability to open it up completely. Her solution: installing roll-up screens that hide behind the drapery cornice and allow the space to be used as either closed, screened-in or entirely open air. Her favorite wow factor is the aforementioned glass counter at the kitchens east-facing window. Its a great spot for sitting in the morning with the paper, or for standing and folding laundry and even for setting up a buffet, she says. Abbie Joan Fine Living 289 Ninth St. S., Naples 435-0677; abbiejoan.com DARK AND DEPRESSING DAZZLING Remodeling is never without challenges, but Ms. Sladick has a few suggestions that will help minimize the headaches: Always use a licensed and insured contractor for construction work. In a condo you have no other alternative. This is for your protection and the protection of your neighbors. Have questions? Ask a professional. Oftentimes a design professional can re-imagine a space and offer suggestions you never would have considered. Dont be afraid of color. In the warm Southwest Florida climate, bright colors can lend a cool feel when combined with white. ABBIE SLADICK

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com JULY 2015 LUXE LIVING 9LUXURY BOATSDesign in motion reaches new heights One of the biggest benefits to yacht ownership is the ability to be mobile in ways that are not possible on a road trip. For example, it takes several hours to drive to Key West by Southwest Florida. By boat, in particular by highpowered yacht, boaters can cast off early in the morning and be in Key West for lunch, not to mention cruising by Fort Jefferson or parking in deeper passes and bays, or running up to Sanibel for the day. Then theres the added bonus that over-nighting on a yacht yields some the best zzzzzs yo ull ever get. People pay big bucks for recordings of the sounds those on the water fall asleep to every night. Even when money is no object, buying a yacht is a huge decision. Eduard Gray, CEO of Gray Design / ZeusTwelve, says many considerations should factor into the purchase. The first thing is that a yacht must fulfill the essential functions that you require in terms of space, practicality and performance, he says. Once these requirements are fulfilled, however, a yacht demands a soul and character that reflect the personality and interest of its owners. Some want their yacht to have a more classical and traditional style, while others prefer a more flamboyant and sculptural feel. The later are the kind of clients his company tends to work with the most, Mr. Gray says, adding they view their yachts as their own piece of floating artwork. It should make you smile inside, he says about plying the water aboard your yacht. The client dictates the parameters and scope of every project, of course, but its Mr. Grays company that comes up with a proposal that pushes the boundaries of a fairly stagnant yacht design market. In a time when people are purchasing houses and planes online, buying a yacht is still very much face-to-face deal. While yacht brokers are a very important part of the process, even the most private of clients enjoy meeting the designer in person, Mr. Gray has found. on th eWater Luxury The Xhibionist by Gray Design accommodates a sports-car showroom in the hull, above, and has plenty of room for a party on deck, top.GRAY DESIGN / COURTESY PHOTOSBy KELLY MERRITTFlorida Weekly CorrespondentSEE LUXURY, 10
10 LUXE LIVING JULY 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYLUXURY BOATSGood ideas are fragile and need space to be nurtured and explained visually and conceptually in order for the buyer to make informed decisions, he says. A lot of hand-waving goes on at the start to capture shapes and layouts that do not translate through video or phone calls. Mr. Gray adds that yacht ownership is as varied as the clients who buy them. Some prefer to use their boat exclusively, while others offset the cost of yacht ownership by making it available for charter. Usage can factor into what type of yacht one purchases. Once we have chosen a direction for the yacht, we continue to refine the details of the general arrangement and styling to get it ready for the next stage, Mr. Gray says. When the final design is agreed upon and the parties contract for the production, the production drawings can take up to six months to produce, depending on the size of the yacht, he adds. Once these are complete, we begin production of the yacht at the chosen shipyard. Mr. Gray is known for creating whats been called the Batmobile of super yachts in the Xhibitionist, which looks like something James Bond would keep on hand to save the planet from an evildoer bent on world domination. The yacht has solar panels, evening lighting by OceanLED, a sports-car showroom in the hull, eight guest rooms and room to launch up to three helicopters (plus its matching automobile, Xhibit G). Other Gray Design / ZeusTwelve yachts include the Sovereign, a lowprofile, 100-meter athletic superyacht; and the Fairwei superyacht that draws parallels to golf with tee-off points and putting and chipping greens. Theres an indoor swimming pool and spa, and crystal embellishments throughout that create an ethereal look.Design in motionThe designer dream team Wilfredo Emanuel and Rhett Josey of Clive Daniel Home has more than a few insights to share when it comes to the interior design of a luxury yacht. Its called design in motion, says Mr. Emanuel. This refers to design on yachts and airplanes smaller spaces. I like light tones contrasted with wood, which gives the interior of a yacht a rich feel. One of Mr. Joseys favorite tricks to is to paint. It requires multiple coats, but the result is a lacquer that takes wear and tear beautifully and embodies a stunning reflective surfacing. Think of it like mise en place in a restaurant a place for everything and everything in its place, everything in the right dimensions for the space, similar to an airplane with the same logistics and engineering, Mr. Josey says. Not only it is important to use lighter materials, like veneering of marble instead of whole slabs, sleek and minimal makes everything much more appealing. Every design decision must be carefully weighed, figuratively and literally, he adds. Above: Yacht interiors must incorporate creative use of space to ensure maximum functionality. Below: The Sovereign has three decks, one with a helicopter pad. The first thing is that a yacht must fulfill the essential functions that you require in terms of space, practicality and performance. Once these requirements are fulfilled, however, a yacht demands a soul and character that reflect the personality and interest of its owners.

FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com JULY 2015 LUXE LIVING 11LUXURY BOATSUnique boats are an extension of your home, but on the water, he says. They can be as grand as a salon or done like a (more casual) living space. But they must also be secure at the same time. You are on a moving and sometimes tumultuous sea, so youve got to have everything battened down even things like a coffee table that sits low to the ground. Club camaraderieAh, marina life. Marinas and clubs make up a segment of yacht ownership that for many informs the social side of the yachting lifestyle. Membership in a yacht club enriches the boating experience and can provide valuable maintenance and peer resources. Locally, one of the most historic clubs is the Naples Yacht Club, founded in 1947. Membership director Brenda OConnor lists dining and socializing in a splendid setting with like-minded boaters among the benefits of belonging to a yachting social circle. We also enjoy the support of a dedicated dock master and staff, plus on-the-water activities befitting a Top Ten Yacht Club. NYC is an affiliate of the Florida Council of Yacht Clubs, an organization of 31 yacht clubs throughout Florida. NYC Commodore Rusty Overton says many of the relationships that begin in a club atmosphere like Naples Yacht Club last a lifetime. Boating is in your blood, and people that love it, love it, he says. There is clearly a strong sense of community among all the boating participants of our club the yachting community is their neighborhood. Designer Mr. Gray agrees and says the lifestyle around yachting extends to life ashore in restaurants, shopping and activities, hence the recently unveiled partnership with Ronn Motor Group to bring integrated super-performance hyper cars with performance superyachts to market. The exclusive 2017 RMG Bird of Prey, an all-wheel-drive hyper-hybrid producing 1,200-plus horsepower and Formula One electric drive technology, will go with the aforementioned Fairwei yacht, the set capped at just seven to maintain exclusivity. This is by no means industry standard, but we see it as a way to get the maximum enjoyment out of a superyacht purchase by extending the fun that could be had on land, the designer says. Top and above: The Fairwei super yacht is in homage to the game of golf. Crystal embellishments lend an ethereal vibe to the master suite.

18 LUXE LIVING JULY 2015 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLYSHOP TALKCooking, sharing, breaking bread these are some of the reasons the kitchen is the heart of the home. In Southwest Florida, many luxury homes have a second heart in the form of a fully equipped outdoor kitchen that allows owners and their guests to enjoy the pleasures of preparing meals and dining together under the sun and stars. Its not as easy as one might think to select and install an outdoor kitchen. There are many factors to consider and special planning is required. It can be challenging to know where to start, and even once a homeowner has an idea of what they want their outdoor kitchen to resemble, all of the parts must align for everything to work properly and look beautiful at the same time. Enter the Outdoor Kitchen Place in Bonita Springs. Here homeowners can get a turnkey outdoor kitchen that matches anything they can cook up in their dreams. Custom outdoor kitchens are the specialty at this family-run business. Everything we do is custom, so typically we can give the client exactly what they want, owner Anthony Zanette says. When you walk into our showroom, we take you through all of the options, and from there we supply a 3-D drawing of the layout and breakdown the cost of the kitchen. Mr. Zanette knows the Florida lifestyle well, having grown up in Naples and graduated from Barron Collier High School and the University of Central Florida. He works with a broad range of clients, most of who come in to the store with at least some idea of what they want their outdoor kitchen to look like and how it should perform. That and a good idea from the client as to how much money they want to spend (grills can range from $1,400 to more than $10,000) becomes the starting point from which he and his team set forth to design. The selection of appliances and features is always a difficult choice for the client as we offer many of the top branded grills and appliances on the market, he says. Outdoor kitchens can be equipped with fridges, sinks and side burners, two-tiered bars, drop-in coolers, icemakers, teppanyaki griddles and margarita machines, for example. Solid construction runs in the Zanette family, which is helmed by Louis Zanette of Zanette Construction. Mr. Zanette Sr. purchased the building that houses the Outdoor Kitchen Place in 2008. Anthony Zanette opened the custom kitchen operation in 2013. He and his mother, Anne-Marie Zanette, run the showroom that accommodates a dizzying array of six outdoor kitchen vignettes incorporating Alfresco, Fire Magic, AOG, Delta and Twin Eagle appliances. People who want an outdoor kitchen tend to enjoy entertaining family and friends, and Mr. Zanette knows all the right questions to ask in the early stages of working with a client. We generally ask our customers what they like to cook, how many people they cook for and how often they entertain, he says. The answers help him come up with a custom recipe for outdoor cooking fun. Once the kitchen is complete, he says, the outdoors becomes a great meeting area. Everybody loves hanging out by the grill to see whats cooking.
