He identifies himself as a democratic socialist, which is a politically toxic designation that renders him unelectable in the minds of most Americans, even if, in reality, most of his ideas are more New Deal than Das Kapital. He rails against Wall Street, the scourge of income inequality, the corrosive effect of big money on politics and politicians and the skewing of rules and regulations to benefit the wealthy and well connected at the expense of the poor and the middle class. These are not terribly radical positions, but the stigmatic socialist tag sticks to poor old Bernie as surely as the scarlet A did to Hester Prynne. Contrast the perception of Mr. Sanders with that of Yanis Varoufakis, a mathematical economist and the former finance minister of Greece, who variously describes himself as an erratic Marxist or a Marxist libertarian. Europeans are less hungup on labels than Americans, so Mr. Varoufakis is taken seriously over there and with good reason. Mr. Varoufakis theories and stratagems are controversial and often derided, but even his most vociferous critics concede that his ideas force rigorous thought upon anyone who is willing to hear him out. You may not always agree with the charismatic Greek, but he definitely is worthy of attention.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 18-24, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY matterbrothersfurniture.comMonday-Saturday 10am-6pm, Sunday 12pm-5pmNaples, Ft. Myers, Sarasota, Tarpon Springs and Pinellas Park Availabl a Ma e Bo erb Furnitur! COMMENTARYCash flow controls water flowNothing has changed since 2013, when a version of this column first appeared. To fix the water catastrophe now taking place both east and west of Lake Okeechobee, somebody is going to have to suffer. Or maybe everybody is going to have to suffer, in spite of the compelling evidence of history that rich people dont, even if their water goes bad. But their water is never bad. People with the liquidity of Palm Beachs Fanjul brothers sugar producers Alfonso, Jose, Alexandro and Andres, owners of the Fanjul Corp. with Florida Crystals and many other companies probably wont have to suffer. But they might have to sacrifice something. Especially since they number among the greatest obstacles to clean Florida water. If that sounds preposterous, it isnt. Forget the Army Corps of Engineers. Forget the South Florida Water Management District. Forget the vegetable and citrus growers, the cattle ranchers, the sub-suburbanites using septic tanks up and down the lengths of the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee rivers. All thats easy, because they arent really the problem. Theyll help if they can, or theyre made to. Even the helmsmen at U.S. Sugar, the owners of 188,000 acres of sugar land around Lake Okeechobee, would be willing to make some changes (at great advantage to themselves, as always). And they proved it. They had agreed to sell their vast holdings in the 700,000-acre Everglades Agricultural Area to the state, probably for more than it was worth, in a deal former Gov. Charlie Crist almost managed to put together starting in 2008. The EAA on the south side of Lake O. was created and protected for their use, with its system of canals and pumps and state employees who keep maintain them, courtesy of U.S. taxpayers and the government, which also protects their major crop, sugar cane, with price supports. In the EAA, they grow their crops on what amounts to a twenty-mile-thick dam, a barrier that separates the former Everglades river from its headwaters, and these farmers have continually opposed any attempt to re-establish anything resembling the pristine environment of the region writes historian David McCally in his seminal book, The Everglades: an Environmental History. All of them, therefore each Fanjul and all the owners of U.S. Sugar are the biggest welfare recipients since FDR invented soup lines. Had Gov. Crist pulled the deal off, he likely would have saved the Florida Everglades, cleaned up and restored Florida Bay, and stopped the Army Corps of Engineers from ever again having to void the bowels of Lake O. down the Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie Rivers during storm events or periods of heavy rain. The Fanjul brothers, however, helped kill the Crist deal, as public records show. They did that, just as they continue to influence public policy the policy of requiring clean water by enforcing more stringent standards for its use, for example by giving huge amounts of money and support to politicians of both parties who support their aims. Their aims are to make more money with less trouble. So heres the problem and the solution: Politicians control the flow of money, and voters control the politicians. If we want to clean our water and carry on living like the blessed, we cant support politicians who dont show an aggressive willingness to wean themselves from the twin teats of Big Sugar and the economy aka the financial interests of people who make more money if they dont have to meet clean water standards. The politicians in question, led by Gov. Rick Scott, who received a $100,000 campaign contribution from sugar interests in June, recently promised our money to help fix the problem. Last month, at press conferences, Gov. Scott offered $130 million for reservoirs and road raisings. But those are bandages, not fixes, from a leader who previously relaxed clean water standards in Florida and slashed both the state Department of Environmental Protection and the South Florida Water Management District, which protect water. And nowhere in the current crisis has Sen. Marco Rubio appeared. This is, after all, his home state, and the single biggest domestic issue facing a generation. So where is he? I dont know. But I do know that the senator is close enough to the Fanjuls to spend the night partying on their luxury boat in the Hamptons, on Long Island, with the likes of Rudolph Giulianni as Sen. Rubio reported himself in his 2012 autobiography, An American Son. And I know that when Gov. Scott loosened clean water regulations and resisted a bid by the U.S. EPA to change that, Sen. Rubio championed his efforts, in 2011. I applaud Gov. Scotts efforts, Sen. Rubio said. I will continue working with my colleagues in Washington to prevent this EPA power grab from ruining Floridas economy to accomplish the dual goals of a vibrant economy and a clean environment. Then just last April, Sen. Rubio signed a letter with 30 Republicans led by Louisianas David Vitter that again resisted cleaner water proposals. Apparently, Sen. Rubio has never looked at a stream, a lake or a wetland here. Otherwise, he might notice that they are already overburdened with both federal and state bureaucracies designed to support sugar and development interests. So what do we do? We start voting for somebody else. And what do the Fanjuls end up sacrificing? Well, not their 12,000and 13,000-squarefoot homes in Palm Beach, or their boats in the Hamptons, or their 300 nights in Londons swank Claridges Hotel, at $7,000 per night or so (attributed to Jose Fanjul in a BBC documentary). No. But they might have to sacrifice their sense of themselves as more important than everybody else. t t s E p d roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

They exist parallel to one another in American politics. Though they co-exist side by side as separate realities, they are bound together by the gravitational pull of their origins in American democracy. Neither can escape the existence of their alternate but the infinity of what lies between them ordains never the twain shall meet. Across this no-mans-land of separation, the two parallel universes exist as politically polar opposites. The evolution of their respective ideologies cements the improbability they will govern together cooperatively. No prescient genius is here to save the day with a political quantum theory that explodes what is accepted as settled science: It is impossible to conjoin the two universes and rule as one. They exist apart, locked in combat. They are fighting a domestic cold war. One parallel universe has its roots in the historical origins of the nation. It is a tapestry of people and ideals woven together from the warp and woof of the Constitution and Bill of Rights: All human beings are created equal; we are a nation of immigrants; this is the land of the free and the home of the brave; we are one nation, under God, indivisible, with freedom and justice for all. The parallel, opposing universe has always coexisted as its alternative. It is no less profound in its assertion of principles. It is as dark is to light, narrowing the promise of justice and equality so it applies to some but not to all. It is a rebuke to democratic ideals and human rights. Survival of the fittest is its moral spirit. Bombast is its voice. It is sustained by those seeking power and advantage in the muddle and confusion of political conflict. Which version of political reality will emerge victorious and dominate the country going forward? Which more authentically represents the American ideal the country you want to live in and your children to inherit? Will we recognize the universe that the choice of one or the other alternative realities represents? Which do you choose? Is your universe dominated by hope, abundance, inclusiveness, generosity and optimism? Or, is your parallel universe its doppelganger, a state of reality bearing the likeness of its twin but whose differences are pronounced in the language of scarcity, pessimism, fearfulness, bigotry and nativism? If there is uncertainty to which universe we belong, it is because the choices are starkly drawn in the 2016 presidential campaign. We must choose one or the other even if neither version of reality is so easily and simplistically described. The choice is a perilous undertaking and not just because we feel the burden in the choice we make. It is as if the nation is poised to fall on its sword, neither the process nor the prospective candidates capable of saving us from ourselves. The jeopardy envelopes more than our personal futures; we risk the demise, loss or injury to liberty and the ideals we cherish as a nation. In such unprecedented times, a diagnosis, if not a remedy, is a troubled pursuit. Still, we shake our heads in consternation. How do we understand whats going on? I came across an article describing a type of mental disorder that involves a breakdown in the relationship between thought, emotion and behavior. According to one source, the breakdown leads to faulty perception, inappropriate actions and feelings, withdrawal from reality and relationships thrust into fantasy and delusion, and a sense of mental fragmentation. When affected by this disorder, and without treatment, contradictory and inconsistent behaviors become characteristic of the individual. It is a lifelong impairment. The disorder is schizophrenia. Not to make light of or overindulge in the metaphor, but there are elements of this mental condition and disorder in our national politics. Its symptoms are egregious displays of inappropriate behaviors, racist attitudes, emotional excesses and irrationality bordering on hysteria. The sum of its contagion is collective delusion within a vast electorate, transmitted by fear, rumor and mendacity to the extreme. A general loss of mind seems to be occurring on a massive scale. It is more than a little disturbing. The spread of this disorder in our politics is media borne and transmitted by the 24/7 news cycle. Social media sends the contagion unchecked throughout a population threatened by change and vulnerable in an anemic economy. The campaign process to pick the parties nominee is a carrier of the political disorder, exposing communities to the volatility of over-the-top rhetoric, accelerating the breakdown in civil discourse. This is but one consequence of the malady. There are others as provocateurs invoke the threat of terrorism, immigrants, refugees, gun control, gays, non-Christians and Obama as sources of all pandemics. The litany is strident and unhinged. This is not a healthy and robust condition in which to be when choosing our next president. Though I dont expect things to improve before this November, one can hope.

OPINIONHide your daughters: Here comes the draftIn the blink of an eye, weve gone from opening combat jobs to women to Republican presidential candidates endorsing registering women for a draft. Hide your daughters our deluded and cowardly political elites are a clear and present danger to common sense. A proposal from the chief of staff of the Army and the commandant of the Marine Corps to require that women register with Selective Service seemed at first like an effort to highlight the absurd endpoint of the rush to women in combat, but top Republicans duly saluted and fell in line. Asked about the proposal at the recent Republican debate, Marco Rubio said that Selective Service should be opened up for both men and women in case a draft is ever instituted. He makes it sound as though women would completely miss out should a large-scale conventional war break out and they not be compelled to fight in it through the coercive power of the state. Chris Christie agreed. So did Jeb Bush. They are indulged in this illusion by men with ribbons on their chests who should know better. The U.S. military doesnt exist to satisfy the whims of the board of directors of the Ms. Foundation. Its job is to field a force that is most effective at winning the nations wars. In an extensive study, the U.S. Marine Corps concluded that mixedgender units fail by that test, although no one is inclined to take note. The Marine study compared all-male and mixed-gender units and concluded that women in mixed-gender units were injured twice as often as men, less accurate with infantry weapons, and not as good at removing wounded troops from the battlefield. The physical capacity of the sexes is different, and top-end females tend to be only as capable as the lower-end males. The males in the Marine study averaged 178 pounds, with 20 percent body fat, whereas females were 142 pounds, with 24 percent body fat. The physical disadvantage meant that women were more likely to be fatigued and suffer stress fractures. Women were six times more likely to be injured in entry-level training than males. The rejoinder to such inconvenient facts is always that the Russians and the Israelis deployed or deploy women in combat. But this is much too simplistic. The School of Advanced Military Studies at Fort Leavenworth found that, even under the extreme pressure of the Nazi invasion, women were only 8 percent of the Red Army, and largely served as medics or otherwise in medical care. As for the Israelis, women initially fought with the Haganah guerrilla force prior to the creation of the Jewish state. But they were pulled back over time. Generally, the Fort Leavenworth study notes, because of their comparative lack of physical strength, commanders employed women in defensive operations whenever possible. Today, as The New York Times notes in a report on gender integration of the Israeli Defense Forces, it remains rare for women to kill or be killed. It is evidently too much to ask that reality intrude on the polite fictions of this countrys policymakers.

Its a place where you can not only buy wines, beers and spirits, but also where you can sample your beverage of choice, learn more about it in a class, enjoy some great live music or meet friends for a drink at the indoor or outdoor bar. Its also a concept that grew from some unique life experiences. Leigh grew up outside Philadelphia and felt blessed to attend Germantown Academy, a private school in Fort Washington, Pa. A jock at heart, as a kid she enjoyed all physical activities, from competitive swimming and tennis to horseback riding, water skiing, field hockey and camping. Summers were spent in the Poconos and at Lake Champlain, Vt., where she was a waterskiing instructor at an overnight camp as a teen. Im still a jock, she says. I love waterskiing, boating, sailing, tennis and tae kwon do. She graduated from high school at age 16 and attended Temple University, studying radio, TV and film in the school of communication. After an internship at the CBS affiliate in Philadelphia, she landed a job in Phoenix as a cameraman for a local TV station. That experience led her to her 20-plus-year career as a producer/ editor for NBC and FOX in Hollywood, Calif. In that capacity, she traveled extensively through Europe and spent many a weekend enjoying the tropics of Hawaii, a quick puddle jump from L.A. Eventually, she decided L.A. was not the best place to raise her children, Zachary and Nikki, both now college students (USC in California and FSU in Tallahassee). She moved the family to North Carolina in 2006 and began her second career, this one in commercial leasing of shopping centers. There she met her Paradise Wine partner, Blaine East, who had been a shopping center developer. Blaines love of wine in tandem with his experience of helping open three North Carolina wine and beer stores gave birth to late-night conversations about moving to Florida and opening our own store, she says. We muddled how to build a better rocket ship and embrace the love of life, entertaining, good times and good friends. After working together for years, hatching and massaging their collective thoughts, Paradise Wine was born. Its not for the faint at heart, Leigh says about the undertaking. But now that its up and running, they are excited to make new friends, share a glass, laugh, love and enjoy their beautiful new surroundings. Please come visit us, she says. w C s a w t bobHARDENbobharden@hotmail.cxom Something your mom was always right about: Manners rule. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A lmmaker.

To help secure decent transportation corridors both to and for that rosy future, the commission has decided to use property taxes paid in the first year by any homeowner or commercial property owner who builds a new structure or buys an existing one. They call that growth increment funding. Meanwhile, six mayors representing the countys six incorporated towns met in Bonita Springs to find a single strong voice theirs that might address problems in ways the countys commissioners and the regions state legislators have not. They wanted to talk about water, of course in particular, the 6 billion gallons of grass-, fishand tourism-killing water flowing each day last week out of Lake Okeechobee and into Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico at Sanibel Island. That water has spread along the coast to pollute beachfronts and shorefronts in their towns, where almost half the population of Lee lives and hundreds of thousands of visitors play: Bonita Springs, Cape Coral, Estero, Fort Myers, Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island. But to get to their meeting, first the mayors had to struggle through a flood of another kind, one the countys commissioners are failing to resolve, say critics the traffic flood. Together, those mayors probably made up the most anxious lot of public officials south of the Georgia state line.Killing tourismFort Myers Beach Mayor Anita Cereceda had just received a note no mayor or commissioner ever wants to read. Arriving suddenly by email, it offered an opinion about her town not likely to be isolated among those visiting the beaches of Southwest Florida this season. It came from a Rochester, New York, resident named Don Reeve. Mr. Reeve had escaped the brutal February cold there only to find himself stuck in a car on Estero Boulevard, the main drag (also the only drag) running the length of Fort Myers Beach. He sent it from his iPhone, apparently while sitting in a car. Hello Mayor, he began, cordially. Im embarrassed to say we chose Fort Myers Beach for my February vacation. We rented a condo at #7700 Estero Blvd. and every day I attempted to drive north to patronize the retail stores 5 miles away, I fought very slow construction and unbelievably unmanageable traffic. I left my condo at 11:20 a.m. this morning (Tuesday, Feb. 9) and after three miles, it is now one hour later. To schedule construction during the busiest time of the year seems ridiculous. Town council needs replacing. I will find another part of Florida to visit next year. Mayor Cereceda considered giving the man and his family a gift certificate to a restaurant or a local business when she called to apologize, she said, but figured it might not do much good, given his level of frustration. She grew up on the island, and her friends own many of its businesses, some of them now struggling, she admits. So they come to see her, to plead for help. And she goes to the county commissioners, in particular Mr. Kiker, who represents the district that includes Fort Myers Beach and once served as mayor there. But neither Mr. Kiker nor other commissioners attended the mayors meeting. That missed meeting wasnt the only one. The attendance record of some commissioners at monthly meetings designed to avoid the business-killing climate of snarled traffic and abused resources is spotty, at best. Each commissioner is required by law to serve as a board member of the Metropolitan Planning Organization, along with one or more elected officials from each city in Lee County and four professional staff members. Together, their job is to plan a comprehensive, intermodal surface transportation system that does all the things commissioners say they champion: provide for regional mobility, encourage a positive investment climate, and foster sustainable development sensitive to community and natural resources, in the website words of the MPO. But planning for that seeming utopia on asphalt is probably difficult when commissioners play hooky. A Florida Weekly records inspection of attendance at meetings from 2013 through 2015 revealed the following: Commissioner Kiker missed 23 of the MPOs 31 meetings since January of 2013. He holds the hooky prize, followed by Commissioner Pendergrass, who missed 14; Commissioner Mann (9); Commissioner Manning (7); and Commissioner Hamman, who served only in 2014 and 2015 hes missed just one of 20, the records show. On Friday, Feb. 19, the MPO is scheduled to meet again (all meetings are public), ostensibly to review the roles and responsibilities of the MPO. Commissioners (Mann is an exception) have said they want to limit what the MPO discusses to projects using only state and federal money not local money and cut the number of meetings in half. An irony springs from poor attendance and poor planning, Mayor Cerecedas experience suggests: Ultimately not the bad water but Estero Boulevard itself, the traditional lifeline of the beach, could choke the local economy to death, along with the livelihoods of her friends. The boulevard is now under day-time construction in a plan that could take 10 years and $50 million to complete. To complicate matters, a developer, Tom Torgerson, is now trying to get the green light from commissioners to construct five-, six-, and seven-story hotels (the mandated maximum height on Fort Myers Beach is four stories) with shops, a parking garage, a half-mile seawall and a roundabout on Estero Boulevard. Some think Mr. Torgersons plan would save the island, and some think it would destroy the whimsical character of Fort Myers Beach. I cant sleep at night thinking about it, Mayor Cereceda says. This man (from New York) doesnt want to hear that the city of Fort Myers Beach has little to do with progress on that road. And it wont do me any good to blame the board of commissioners. Instead, she planned to meet with Commissioner Kiker last week and talk about what commissioners could do to speed up the project: devote more resources to it now, for example, and even work at night, which could shoot up the bill by as much as 30 percent. The Estero Boulevard Project is a double-edged sword, she concludes. Were tremendously grateful its happening, but not if it takes 10 years. So Fort Myers Beach is trapped between a rock and a hard place. We are literally at critical mass on so many different issues. Change in every sense of the word is beating us down. Our community is struggling to wrap our heads around it.Commission asleep at the wheel?While dirty brown water in the Caloosahatchee Basin is the responsibility of many besides the Lee County commissioners, the thickly clotted road arteries are not. For roughly $90,000 per year in salary and the go-ahead nod from taxpaying voters who elect them, each commissioner agrees to accept many responsibilities in his job (no women currently sit on the commission, nor any minority) including to promote the best interests of citizens both now and in the future by planning properly. Whether commissioners are doing that is an open question in Lee County. Asked to describe their legacies as a board of commissioners, four are proudly optimistic both about the past and the future. The hallmark of this board is communication if you want people to come in and invest millions, then you should be credible, so weve been an extremely productive board, says Commissioner Hamman. We figured out what our policy initiatives would be at the beginning of the year. In the past, at the end of the year about a month before budget, wed say, Get us $18 million. That doesnt work. Thats our biggest legacy, says Commissioner Kiker. My legacy is being consistent, fair and keeping my word, and bringing some GROWTHFrom page 1 VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYFort Myers Beach protesters demand an end to dirty-water releases from Lake Okeechobee last week.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 18-24, 2016 NEWS A9stability back to the board as far as honor and integrity, compared to what we had in 2010, says Commissioner Pendergrass. This board has taken a proactive and balanced approach to growth management, argues Commissioner Manning. Everybody on this commission is still in favor of the environmental land-purchasing program (Conservation 20/20). As for growth, we have a combination of increment financing and a lowered impact-fee rate that gives the construction industry a chance to grow out of the recession and to prosper. But Commissioner Frank Mann does not see the boards legacy that way. One of three commissioners up for reelection Mr. Kiker and Mr. Manning will also seek new terms this year he serves as an in-house critic of the boards work over time. Weve taken substantial steps away from progress and weakened our planning, he says. Thats also reflected in Tallahassee, beginning with the abolition of the Department of Community Affairs several years ago under this governor (Rick Scott). Combine that with incidental issues such as our unwillingness to assess impact fees at the maximum level, and it means this coming growth is going to begin to overwhelm us, and well sacrifice our quality of life. Impact fees for any county or community are calculated by independent analysts who take into account all the costs created by new development equipment, materials and labor to developers themselves; roads, schools and parks; other infrastructure and safety support, as well as everything else in the proverbial kitchen and then set a maximum fee that can be assessed on those developers to make them pay for their share. If developers dont pay those fees in full, somebody else will have to, says Commissioner Mann. Either that, or the community can surrender its current quality of life. Thats how it works, he said, noting that one of the two other funding sources currently used gas taxes are in steep decline, since drivers are paying less for gas and driving vehicles that use less gas. Only the revenue stream from tolls is on the gentle rise. But the need for more and better roads and other infrastructure is rising like a flood. In 24 years, the population of Lee alone will number more than 1 million, demographers say, and the three-county coastal region could be home to 1.8 million residents. While everyone on every side of the issue acknowledges that coming reality, four of the five commissioners reason that impact fees hold down growth, and growth brings taxes, and taxes will build the roads and clean the water all those people will need.How commissioners want to payIn the here and now, making a priority of Estero Boulevard could mean slowing down other projects by shifting money away from them in such locations as Alico Road, Corkscrew Road and Three Oaks Parkway. There, roads and infrastructure, including schools and parks, must either be built or updated before developers can create homes and commercial buildings. That challenge is par for the course in much of Florida, but the Lee commissions method of paying for it, is not. In a 4-1 vote, commissioners reduced the level of impact fees paid traditionally by developers several years ago to 20 percent, then increased it last year to 45 percent of the cost for new development they could seek from developers. The decision created intense and ongoing controversy over who will pay for growth. In the minds of four commissioners, it wont be primarily developers and those who profit directly from new growth. Instead it will be a cost shared by all property owners who either build anew or buy other existing properties. Impact fees are not sufficient and never will be and dont work in this environment, especially, insists Commissioner Kiker. His critics insist, in turn, that he carries the banner only for the interests of developers and their related businesses, who have lobbied aggressively to avoid impact fees. A Florida Weekly look at Commissioner Kikers campaign finance records between Jan. 1 of last year and Feb. 13, last week, show more than 300 contributors/vendors, giving him a current total of $138,225, with $13,202.99 in expenditures. Those include the River Hall Investment Group ($1,000), and family members of the developers now seeking to establish the 1,325-home Corkscrew Farms in southeastern Lee County, on previously protected land where commissioners, including Mr. Kiker, have agreed to allow approximately one home per acre. The existing Lee Comprehensive Plan allows only one home per 10 acres, there. Two volunteer citizens groups have sued the county to stop the project, and the outc ome remains uncertain. The Corkscrew Farms development company itself, Camprop Inc., along with Anthony, Barbara, Colleen, Dominic, Nicholas and the president and CEO, Joseph Cameratta, all are listed as $1,000 contributors to Commissioner Kikers coffers. Commissioners Kiker, Hamman, Pendergrass and Manning have voted to take the impact fee pressure off them, and waived the zoning, for reasons they explain this way. There are three different revenue streams for transportation, Commissioner Kiker says: impact fees, gas taxes and tolls. In the last 10 years, the least of the three have been impact fees. So we came up with growth-increment funding. This will be the first year. All inhibitors in terms of where can you spend the money go away. I see these mansions going up all over the place, and none qualify for impact fees. But with growth-increment funding, they do qualify. Commissioner Hamman describes growth increment funding this way: When a new house is built on a vacant piece of property, the new homeowner will pay taxes on more than vacant property. Or if you buy a home, the property appraiser will base the taxes on the value when you bought it, so youll be paying more than the old owner paid when the value was rated less. Thats growth money. So in the first year of property taxes (on a new home or commercial building, or one that has changed hands) well take that property tax money and move it into transportation. These folks arent paying extra taxes; it comes from the property tax they have to pay anyway. The countys budget director estimates that growth will be worth $50 million over the next five years. And once somebody has paid their property taxes, what should they care where it goes? The way Commissioner Manning sees it, by combining reduced impact fees with growth-increment funding, developers will do better, and so will everybody else. If you look at the amount of impact fees that would be brought into the county over the next five years and compare it to impact fees at 45 percent along with increment funding, we have about $30 million over what we projected to be brought into Lees revenue stream if impact fees were at 100 percent, Mr. Manning says. As for the notion that impact fees just get passed on to consumers, and developers dont really pay them anyway so they dont inhibit growth, thats false, says commissioner Kiker. I agree with you on, say, a million dollar home where they can pay $18,000 or $20,000 in impact fees. But in a place like Lehigh Acres where a home might go for $140,000 or $160,000 I can no longer go along with you. People cant afford it. Meanwhile, road projects have to be prioritized, Commissioner Hamman says. Just like probably at your home, the county has more needs than we have money for all at once. Its true of just about every county in Florida and even the nation. Its a matter of prioritization, and making sure you build your most critical needs first. This board has done that. We just created a new ranking system to score and rank projects, and at the next county commission meeting well prioritize them, then start matching dollars with them to get them built as soon as possible.The criticsSome, however, do care where their money goes and they dont want it going where somebody elses money should already have gone, they say. Theyre giving up 55 percent of an existing tax that is imposed on the generators of growth, on new construction, to accommodate the increase in population of the area, and the commercial that follows it. So that revenue is lost, says Don Eslick, a retired economist and professor who now serves as interim chairman of the Estero Council of Community Leaders. What theyre trying to do is create the illusion that they replaced lost revenue by earmarking some existing tax revenues. And the double taxation argument is being ignored. People who came down here for the last 25 years paid impact fees at 100 percent. Builders and developers simply shift the costs of impact fees onto consumers at every level of consumption, he argues and consumers continue to consume, as has happened in cities such as Bonita Springs and counties such as Collier. There, impact fees were not reduced and home sales rose anyway, coming out of the recession. As of January, the county has lost about $50 million by not collecting impact fees at the full rate, says Mr. Eslick and thats money for roads, schools and parks that wont come back. Meanwhile, gas taxes are falling since people drive more economically than once upon a time, and theyre spending less on gasoline now per capita than they have in recent years. As it stands, Commissioner Mann estimates, the county is more than $100 million short for road projects already identified as imperative that have no planned funding source. Were charging only 45 percent of what we could be charging developers, and that means roads and schools are losing millions a year, he insists. John Cassani, a member of the Local Planning Agency or LPA, an advisory group picked by commissioners, says Gov. Scotts decision to leave land use planning to local governments alone was a mistake. Theyre just as subject to special interests as the governor and legislature have proved to be, he argues. So in local government, land use decisions are not balanced. In Lee weve had River Hall (east of Buckingham Road) developers are seeking a huge increase in density where its been traditionally prohibited and we have Corkscrew Farms, for example. So were not now looking at cumulative impacts, were looking at individual impacts. Such piecemeal planning will likely prove expensive to future residents both in dollars and resources, he says. Corkscrew Farms and other issuesCorkscrew Farms is opposed by the Estero Council of Community Leaders along with another public interest group, the Responsible Growth Management Coalition, says Mr. Eslick. The groups have sued Lee County, bringing progress on the development to a temporary halt. They want to stop a plan that would leapfrog two miles east of the nearest residential development to put 1,325 homes on 1,360 acres where zoning is now one home per 10 acres. Were trying to convince the county to go back and implement a provision in the comp plan for the DRGR updated about 2008 or 2009, he explains. The Density Reduction Groundwater Resource Area in southeastern Lee County, where much of the fresh water consumed by Lee County residents comes from about 250 wells, was traditionally considered off limits to major development and certainly not to a major development such as Corkscrew Farms, although FGCU was placed on land that used to be part of it. The comp plan for the area envisions restoration of flow-ways, and acquisition and conservation of a lot of land out there, says Mr. Eslick. But the project is laid out in the boonies, two miles from the nearest development, so they have to put water and sewer in to extend it out there. Which would likely invite more development along that stretch. Its in a very sensitive area, a priority one acquisition site, and in primary panther habitat, and it would consist of instead of 150 housing units in an area CHRIS KOVAZ / FLORIDA WEEKLYSix mayors from each of Lee Countys six incorporated towns met to create one voice in protesting dirty water and congested traffic.SEE GROWTH, A10 VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYWork slows traffic on Fort Myers Beach.

They have to be used for growth and expansion new roads, new schools or expansion of schools, new parks or extension of parks. Ms. Patterson is director of the countys Capital Project Planning, Impact Fees and Program Management Division. As in Lee or other counties, impact fees are determined by independent researchers who rely on many factors to determine what may be a fair fee. By mandate, that happens every three years in Collier. We look at costs, credits, changes, every component we also have an indexing methodology that looks at changes in construction or equipment costs. When costs go up, impact fees go up. When they go down, as they did during the recession, impact fees go down. Did the fact that the costs were down cause a spurt of growth? asks Ms. Patterson No. Because everything was down. There wasnt an impact fee solution to a more global problem. Different counties have different ways of doing it, she notes. Here they can be adopted at their maximum legal limit so growth pays their fair share of the impact it creates. Other jurisdictions have franchise fees, toll revenues, some taxes there are different ways of paying for it. Its what their taxpayers will tolerate. COLLIERFrom page 1Charlotte county revenue sources (for transportation and infrastructure) include gas taxes, sales tax money and impact fees, explains Brian Gleason, the countys communications manager. We also get money from the state of Florida and the federal government for state and federal highways. We fund the maintenance of current roads through Municipal Service Benefit Units or MSBUs, he says. The county has dozens of districts in which MSBUs district taxes are levied to maintain both roads and drainage. So If you live in Port Charlotte, the repaving of your road or the drainage of your swale comes out of the Greater Port Charlotte MSBU, says Mr. Gleason. That way, youre only paying for the maintenance of the roads in your neighborhood. As for impact fees themselves, most come from the countys urban centers, formulated slightly differently than fees for development in rural areas or, now, Babcock, says Mr. Gleason. The history begins in 2007. In 2007, the commission rolled back impact fees on new home construction to the 1998 rate of $2,510 per home, no matter what size. Before that, it was based on a $3.89 per square foot fee. In 2009, the impact fees were reduced for all categories for roads and for non-transportation categories, such as libraries, parks and fire stations. Then in 2011, the commission waived impact fees for all non-transportation (needs), and kept the transportation impact fees at a lower rate. But in 2015 they re-implemented the impact fees for transportation to 40 percent of what they could charge, as determined by Tindale Oliver (Tampabased engineering consultants hired to conduct independent research on the cost of development). For a singlefamily home its $1726. The commission will be looking at the question of impact fees again this year, Mr. Gleason says. How they do it in Charlotte County BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweekly.com zoned at one house per 10 acres 1,325 homes. So almost a 10-fold unit increase. That would produce about 12,000 trips per day, the planners estimate. It all comes back to water, he says the same issue mayors, commissioners, and state legislators all struggle with now. Our future water supply is potentially impaired, says Mr. Eslick. Projects like this allow water to flow more quickly, rather than to settle in and restore underground aquifers there. Thats long term, but developers dont think long term. And neither does this board. Commissioner Pendergrass, however, is thinking long-term about water just not that Lee County water, perhaps. Water would be my priority for the next four years, he says. Hopefully when I leave office I can look back and say, Look what we did there are more flow ways, more storage. And less flooding with its devastating pollutants downstream. My big thing is: Why arent we required to clean the water (in Okeechobee) before you release it? There has to be some technology. If they can take salt water or sewer water in California and turn it into drinking water, why cant they clean water from Lake Okeechobee? Or instead of creating more capacity outside the lake, why dont they just dredge it out and use that muck for fill or something? Maybe technology will solve these problems and create the rosy future commissioners want but that takes wealth, too, not to mention brains, concludes Mr. Eslick. GROWTHFrom page 9PATTERSON GLEASON

The Halifax, Nova Scotia, woman's car was, a police statement said, a snowbank with four wheels.Great art!Fed up with the pretense of the art world, performer (and radio personality) Lisa Levy of Brooklyn, New York, sat on a toilet, naked and motionless, at the Christopher Stout Gallery in January to protest artists BS by presenting herself in the humblest way she could imagine.

Ms. Levy told the Bushwick Daily website that too much ego, like a drug, distorts your reality.Wait, what? In January, the U.S. Department of Justices inspector general recommended closing down a program of the departments Drug Enforcement Administration that paid employees of other federal agencies (Amtrak and the beloved Transportation Security Administration) for tips on suspicious passengers. (The program apparently ignored that federal employees have such a duty even without a bounty.) DEA was apparently interested in passengers traveling with large amounts of cash which DEA could potentially seize if it suspected the money came from illegal activity (and also, of course, then keep the money under federal forfeiture law). According to the inspector general, the tipping TSA agent was to be rewarded with a cut of any forfeited money. Chiropractor William DeAngelo of Stratford, Connecticut, was charged with assault in January after an employee complained that she was ordered to lie down on a table and let DeAngelo apply electrical shocks to her back as punishment for being the office gossiper, spreading rumors about colleagues. Dr. DeAngelo said he was reacting to complaints from patients and staff, but seemed to suggest in a statement to police that he was only re-educating the woman on how to use the electrical stimulator in the offices practice (though she felt the need to report to a hospital afterward).The continuing crisisBritains North Yorkshire Police successfully applied to a judge in January for a sexual risk order against a man whose name was not disclosed publicly and whose alleged behavior was not revealed. Whoever he is and whatever he did, he is forbidden to enter into any sexual situation with anyone without providing at least 24 hours notice to the police nor is he allowed to look at or possess any sexually oriented materials.

Eventually Mr. Lemek confessed to literally burying the evidence using a construction vehicle to crush his truck and an excavator to dig up his backyard and drop the truck into it.No need for a pre-nupThe 20-year New York marriage of Gabriel Villa, now 90, and Cristina Carta Villa, now 59, apparently had its happy moments, but as Cristina found out when things went bad recently, Gabriel had attempted to protect himself shortly after the wedding by obtaining a Dominican Republic divorce and keeping it secret. Cristina found out only when she realized in a property accounting that her name was not on the deed to their Manhattan apartment. (She is challenging that divorce as improper even under Dominican law.)Suspicions confirmedSeveral Connecticut state troopers involved in a DUI checkpoint in September were apparently caught on video deliberating whether to make up charges against a (perhaps obnoxious) checkpoint monitor. Veteran protester Michael Picard, 27, posted the videos on his YouTube page in January, showing troopers (illegally) confiscating Mr. Picards camera and suggesting among themselves various charges they could write up (at least some not warranted by evidence) to, as one trooper was heard imploring, cover our asses. (The troopers returned the camera after deliberating, but seemed unaware that it had been running during the entire incident.) State police internal affairs officers are investigating.

All are welcome to enjoy food from Texas Tonys and live music by The Blu-Tones. Tickets for $60 are available by calling Julianne Gilmore at 252-8250 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Marc Huling, foundation president and partner at the Roetzel law firm, said the CCBF expects to donate at least $10,000 to the clinic this year and hopes to generate half that amount at the barbecue. Other fundraising events include the 5K Judicata Race on Memorial Day, the annual fishing tournament in October and a golf tournament tentatively scheduled for October. We are grateful and appreciative that the Collier County Bar Foundation has chosen us to be their primary beneficiary this year, said John Cardillo, board chair of the Neighborhood Health Clinic.

In those remarks, Mr. Varoufakis set forth the idea that capitalism and democracy are not always compatible a heretical thesis, especially in the United States. Of Western-style democracy, he said, we make the colossal mistake of taking it for granted. We see democracy not as the most fragile of flowers that it really is but as part of our societys furniture as an intransient given. We also believe that capitalism inevitably begets democracy. It doesnt. Capitalism may have yielded liberal democracies in America and Europe, but there is nothing inevitable about it. As proof, Mr. Varoufakis cited Singapore and China, where repressive regimes have demonstrated that capitalism can flourish, economic growth can be spectacular, while politics remains democracyfree, Mr. Varoufakis pointed out that Western democracies arose from the Magna Carta and the American Constitution, which meant that democratic tenets inevitably would be confined to the political sphere, while guaranteeing that the economic sphere, the corporate world, remained a democracy-free zone. Mr. Varoufakis insisted that unrestrained capitalism eats political democracy, much to the detriment of society as a whole. Have you wondered why politicians today are not what they used to be? he asked. No, it is not that their DNA has degenerated. These days, politicians may be in government but not in power because power lies in a separate economic sphere beyond their reach. It is no wonder politics attracts fewer and fewer of the bright. Mr. Varoufakis TED talk came to mind recently as I watched the lamentable performances turned in by some Republican members of the House of Representatives as they held hearings on the obscenely high cost of prescription medications. Yes, these political hacks said, it would be nice if everyone could afford the medicines they need to live a healthy life and in many cases to stay alive. And, yes, prescription drugs cost much more in the United States than they do anywhere else. And, yes, it may be unfair that only the extraordinarily wealthy have the wherewithal to access single doses of medication that cost $1,000 or more. Yes, all of that is unfortunate. But what would be TRULY horrible, they added, is if the government did anything that harmed Big Pharmas bottom line. It is better, we are told, that some ordinary folks suffer and die than we dare to tinker at all with the sacrosanct free market. In short, capitalism trumps the longcherished rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, for who can enjoy those guarantees if they are desperately ill or dead? This is illustrative, I believe, of Mr. Varoufakis contention that the true power in Western democracies is wielded by corporate interests. Granted, some of his ideas sound like the late-night musings of a tipsy graduate student. The underpinning of his philosophy, for example, is the establishment of Athenian-style democracies throughout the West. Still, it would be beneficial if we could evaluate revolutionary ideas with something approaching an open mind, but most Americans are more interested in labeling people as Marxists, socialists, Keynesians, supply-siders, etc., than in listening to what they actually have to say. And where has that attitude landed us?

A20 NEWS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 18-24, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELCadillac CTS-V is a 200 mph brute in a finely tailored suitCadillac is an iconic American brand with an American sense of luxury. So even when it comes time to build a super sedan in the style thats been made popular by the Europeans, Caddy still does it on its own terms. The heart of the Cadillac CTS-V is in great muscle car tradition of stuffing the largest motor in the corporate family into the engine bay. In this case it is a supercharged 6.2liter V8 borrowed from the Chevrolet Corvette Z06. It produces 640 horsepower in this sedan, but all of this performance comes at a price. A price tag of $86,000 is not cheap, but it offers much more motor for less cash than anything thats being shipped from across the Atlantic. Cadillac seemed to boast about this power superiority from the onset because the face of the regular CTS sedan has been lowered, flared and vented until it was transformed from Bud Fox into Gordon Gekko. The interior of this proud American can teach the Europeans a few lessons in style. Cadillacs CUE infotainment touchscreen controls everything from the Bose radio to navigation, and it is set inside a glossy piano black center console. Theres even a neat feature where the panel raises to reveal a discrete cubby with a power outlet to covertly charge cell phones. These top quality materials would be perfect if they were not part of a finicky touch panel. So while the Caddy looks better than its rivals, the Germans would never let vanity get in the way of function like this. The driver has an easier time with controls because all the essential functions are part of de signated buttons mounted on the wheel. Beyond that is a digital instrument cluster with a large tachometer and speedometer in the middle. Flanking this are two programmable readouts that allow the driver to choose everything from the superchargers boost gauge to the roads current speed limit. A heads-up display on the windshield is also standard. The reason for multiple readouts is because it is quite easy to speed in the CTS-V. High horsepower supercharged V8s tend to have an angry wail that lets the driver, and everyone else in the car, know that triple digit speeds are near. But thats not the case here. Cadillac installed acoustic glass and plenty of other sound-deadening materials so that the atmosphere stays near a luxury car tone when benignly running down the highway. It is a similar story for the magnetic ride suspension that adjusts to a comfortable setting when it is time to be just a commuter car. Thats an important distinction, because while super sedans like the CTS-V establish their reputation with all-out speed, they are going to spend the majority of the time as everyday transport. But when it does become time for hijinks, this car is ready. Mash the accelerator, and the supercharger howls like a wolf under a full moon. Theres so much power that Michelin specially tailored a set of their Pilot Super Sport tires for this car. In fact, the 640 horsepower and 630 footpound of torque is so intense that this supercar rubber can easily be turned into smoke at launch. It will wag the tail-end a little if full throttle is requested at under 50 mph. The Germans and Japanese are known for their precision machines, and so the Cadillac plays right into the opposing big brutish American stereotype in all the best ways. It has the highest horsepower and shortest temper of its competition. That makes for a lot of fun on the track and possibly devastating to license points on the street. But anytime drivers feel out of their depth, the infinitely adjustable magnetic ride control and big Brembo brake package will quickly wrangle everything back into control. With a motor this large, it shouldnt be a surprise that the CTS-V has a serious performance presence. What is impressive is how easily this one settles into everyday life. After all, your heart will easily choose the 200 mph supercharged V8 car, but the rest of your body has to go with it to work on the weekdays. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

BACTERIUM LINKS GUM AND HEART DISEASESThere has been a great deal of discussion in recent years about the link between gum disease and heart disease. Now, researchers have found the culprit responsible for this link. e bacterium known as Porphyromonas gingivalis is well known to dentists and periodontists for causing the development of periodontitis, the serious form of gum infection that damages so tissues surrounding the teeth and attacks underlying bone.

Typically, each one functions as a dimmer switch for the expression of one or more genes, regulating a wide variety of cellular processes, including learning and memory. In a new study published in the Feb. 11 issue of the journal Cell Reports, scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute, in Jupiter, working in collaboration with scientists from the University of California, Irvine, show that one specific microRNA has strong links to a number of neuropsychiatric disorders, including autism spectrum disorder. The microRNA, known as miR-980, serves as a memory suppressor in multiple brain regions of Drosophila, the common fruit fly, a widely recognized substitute for human memory studies. We wanted to know what happens to behavior when we change the levels of these microRNAs, said Ron Davis, chair of TSRIs Department of Neuroscience, in a prepared statement. When we reduced the level of miR-980, the flies had better memory thats something new and surprising. Mr. Davis noted that this specific microRNA regulates neuronal excitability the nerves capacity for firing and inhibiting it increased both memory acquisition and stability. Next, Mr. Davis and his colleagues tried to uncover which genes miR-980 regulates, identifying 95 specific targets that might fit that bill. Intriguingly, they found that miR-980 targets and inhibits a gene known as A2bp1. This gene previously had been shown to be involved in susceptibility to autism. In addition, it works to promote memory. A2bp1 has been shown to be associated with autism spectrum disorder in humans, said Research Associate Germain Busto, co-first author of the study with Research Associate Tugba GuvenOzkan. We discovered that when A2bp1 was overexpressed, it improved memory and that miR-980 also affected memory when artificially modulated. This offers a powerful model describing the gene network potentially underlying autism spectrum disorder. Linking this microRNA to a diseaselinked gene may help us to uncover even more nervous system dysfunctions, added Ms. Guven-Ozkan. Mr. Davis speculated that the different neuronal networks that form due to varying levels of A2bp1 may account for the range of intellectual abilities observed in autism spectrum disorder in the fly model. But the fact that A2bp1 plays an influential role in autism and epilepsy in people brings a real human connection to the study, Mr. Davis said. Its very exciting. In addition to Mr. Davis, Mr. Busto and Ms. Guven-Ozkan, other authors of the study, MiR-980 is a Memory Suppressor MicroRNA that Regulates the Autism-Susceptibility Gene A2bp1, are Isaac Cervantes-Sandoval of TSRI and Soleil S. Schutte and Diane K. ODowd of the University of California, Irvine. The work was supported by the National Institutes of Health. The Scripps Research Institute is one of the worlds largest independent, nonprofit organizations focusing on research in the biomedical sciences. TSRI is internationally recognized for its contributions to science and health, including its role in laying the foundation for new treatments for cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, hemophilia and other diseases. An institution that evolved from the Scripps Metabolic Clinic founded by philanthropist Ellen Browning Scripps in 1924, the institute now employs about 2,700 people on its campuses in La Jolla, California, and Jupiter, where its renowned scientists including two Nobel laureates work toward their next discoveries.

FALLSFrom page 28CEO finds observing teamwork heart warming and humblingIts one thing to talk about our teamwork at NCH, but it quite another to experience it. Over a recent weekend, I had the privilege of seeing NCH teamwork in action while observing two days of long operations, complex interventional radiology repairs and numerous bedside procedures. My experience started with Colette Pierre, R.N. and operating room circulating nurse, welcoming me with a scrub jacket to be worn on top of the scrub suit, shoe covers, cap and mask standard covering in the OR while sterile procedures are being performed. (When X-rays or fluoroscopy are to be utilized, everyone is also draped with heavy leadlined garments. The weight of the lead, particularly in a lengthy case requiring standing in place, can be a real stress on ones legs and back.) So in addition to being mentally challenging, the work can have real physical demands. In the OR, Lili Mangovski was scrubbed in with the surgeon. She deftly handed instruments, kept count of all the sponges and needles used and anticipated the patients next needs. Kelly Pickel, assisting in the non-sterile area, documented progress and delivered the 128 additional sutures required in the difficult surgery. In the interventional radiology lab, which some consider to be the new OR, radiology technologists Michelle Casey, Kathy Finn and Annette Kaplan joined Irene Belliveau, R.N., for a complex procedure involving our new biplane radiology equipment that provides 3D images and fluoroscopy. I was struck by how this serious situation using sophisticated medical equipment resembled a computer games animation. Of special note was the competent and caring anesthetic team comprised of anesthesiologists William Caldwell on Saturday and Mike Staab on Sunday, assisted by certified nurse anesthetist Rubin Alimbuyao and Wolford student nurse anesthetists Sarah Lamberg and Ethel Alimbuyao. The preparation of the patient, care in moving the patient into position, placement of monitoring equipment including remote blood pressure, oxygen saturation, temperature, pulse and EKG all before getting the patient relaxed and then asleep was impressive. It was only exceeded in complexity by the process of obtaining the best venous and arterial access to administer medications and monitor the arterial blood pressure, respectively, in the interventional radiology procedure. I also found the computer-driven anesthesia machines, which are relatively new, to be technological marvels. The anesthesia team takes charge of a sleeping, defenseless patient. Before each procedure started there was a careful time out in which everyone stopped and agreed on the operation to be performed, the pre-op diagnosis, the name of the patient and whether he had any drug allergies. Had the operation included laterality, the correct side would also have been identified and confirmed. Also critical were the preand postoperative nursing care staff. R.N.s Georgia Anderson, Megan Sammons, Kim Bossert, Lori Fehr and Linda Yerger were among those comforting and helping the patients prepare for and recover from surgery. Observing experienced NCH teams coming together with strong collaboration, communication and coordination all focused on healing a patient was heart-warming and humbling at the same time. It made me so proud to be a part of a team that is dedicated every day to helping all of us live longer, happier and healthier lives.

And its surprising how immoveable a 12-pound and a 6-pound dog can be. Once Gemma is latched onto my left side and Harper is snuggled into the crook of my knees, its almost impossible for me to move for the rest of the night. And when they arent snugged right up against me, they are sprawling in a way that also makes it impossible to move. So why let them on the bed? A survey of 150 people by the Center for Sleep Medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona found that 56 percent of those surveyed who were pet owners allow their animals to snooze in the bedroom. More than half of the pets slept on the bed with their people. The presence of their pets made them feel safe and comfortable and helped them get a better nights rest, the respondents reported. Only 20 percent described their pets as disruptive to sleep. Of course, thats a small sample size only 74 pet owners. But Im willing to bet that many other pet owners feel the same way. Im one of them, and I know other people who share bedrooms and beds with their pets, despite allergies, snoring (by the pet) and early morning head butts from a hungry cat or dog. Should you allow your pet to sleep on the bed? Thats been a bone of contention for years. Some people argue that allowing a pet to share the bed can make a pooch pushy or a cat cheeky. Allergists recommend a pet-free bedroom for people who suffer the coughing, wheezing, itchy eyes and sneezing associated with allergies to pets. Researchers at University of California, Davis warned of zoonotic diseases those that can be passed between animals and people. And, as with my own dogs, pets can make a bed downright uncomfortable when theres little freedom of movement. But for many with pets, their comforting presence on the bed or in the room outweighs the disadvantages. A survey participant reported feeling more content when her small dog slept at her feet, and another described her cat sleeping on her chest as soothing. One person I know falls asleep hand in paw with her cat. Spending a long stretch of time with a pet even if youre both asleep strengthens the human-animal bond. If youd like to have a more pleasant sleeping experience while still keeping your pet on or near the bed, the following tips may help. Place a heating pad on the spot where you want your pet to sleep. The warmth may draw him there and make it his favorite area. Lay a blanket or pet bed at the foot of the bed. Pets often like to have their own extra-soft sleeping spot and will adopt the place with the blanket or bed. Put a tall cat tree in your room. Cats love heights and may find this to be a safe and secure sleeping area. (Of course, then you have to worry that they will dive-bomb you in the morning.) Keep pets clean. Nobody wants a stinky bedmate. Brush and bathe frequently, keep them on parasite preventive and wash the sheets in hot water two to three times a week. Set boundaries. If you dont want your pet on your pillow or under the covers, establish that rule right from the beginning and dont yield. If all else fails, do what Im doing anxiously awaiting delivery of a kingsize bed.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 18-24, 2016 NEWS A31 World Renowned Cataract Surgeon, David C. BrownM.D., F.A.C.S NEW LOCATION IN CAPE CORAL! Coralwood Shopping Center 2301 Del Prado Blvd S, #820 Cape Coral, FL 33990 THE DIVA DIARIESRead. Exercise. Declutter. Easier resolved than doneWell, were a little over a month and a half into 2016, and Im wondering: How are those new years resolutions working out for you? For me, not so good. There was the resolution that every day, I would remove an object from my home in an effort to clear the clutter. It could be an item of clothing I havent worn in three years, or a broken pepper mill Ive been hanging on to forever, promising myself to get it fixed but never getting around to it. Not only have I removed nothing from our home, Ive actually managed to add to the clutter by st opping at some garage sales in the past few weeks. Why, yes yes, I do desperately need an orange upholstered mid-century modern ottoman for only $4 (I scored it at a yard sale back in January and its still in the trunk of my car). Resolution No. 2 was to read one book a month. Just one. A month. How hard would that be? Its too bad I dont get reading credit for scrolling through Facebook or watching YouTube, because then I would be way ahead of this resolution. As it is, unless reading one article in Vanity Fair magazine last month counts as a book (it doesnt), then Ive got some major catching up to do. Finally, regarding the most important resolution of all weight loss and fitness: Ive put on 8 pounds. Dont even ask me how (Im still faulting the hernia surgery I had back in September, even though that was nearly FIVE months ago and is a really lame excuse). Of course Im going to blame the weather; I mean, its been terribly erratic, what with the rain and the heat and the cold and the tornados. How can I get outside to walk or ride my bike with this strange weather? As far as eating goes, I continuously remind myself that tomorrow is another day. Tomorrow Ill stop eating bread and potatoes and drinking wine. And suddenly its mid-February and Im carrying around an extra 8 pounds. Sigh. In the end, I think Ive jinxed myself. I never do the resolution thing for the very reason that I dont want to let myself down. This year, though, I thought Id matured enough to follow through on some very basic goals: Read. Exercise. Declutte r. Maybe I should simplify it even more. I could take a book to the gym, read it while on the stationary bike and then stop by Goodwill and donate it (without buying something I dont need while there). I just might be on to something. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week a s t a c I w a m f m T p I S I v m m s D i s b t t e stephanieDAVIS email@example.com

A commercial airline that next week starts service out of Naples Municipal Airport strengthens that bond. The small carrier called Elite Airways is offering 70and 50-seat flights to and from Naples and the New York/northern New Jersey area, as well as to and from Portland, Maine. The flights mark the first commercial service out of Naples Municipal in eight years. It came back as fuel prices dropped, the economy improved, and the airport and Elite looked toward expanding services. The biggest part of it was the price of oil, said Ted Soliday, executive director of the Naples Airport Authority. Especially for smaller commercial aircraft, high fuel costs make it hard to make money on flights. But now that cost has plummeted.

MONEY & INVESTINGOur new era of central bank powerI think one of the hardest things about being a parent is figuring out where to draw the line between directly helping your children solve lifes everyday challenges and letting them potentially fail on their own, learning from their mistake. On this subject, I err on the side of letting our kids try to do things on their own, while my wife is more hands-on. Obviously, if one of my sons attempts to stick a paperclip into an electrical socket, I will intervene, but I think experiencing some negative outc omes in life is beneficial in the long run. For decades, central banks around the world have also debated how much assistance they should give to their respective economies. Should these pillars of the financial world only intervene if there is a major crisis or should they be a steadying hand day in and day out? Some banks were known to intervene at the first sign of trouble while others were more conservative in their actions. Today, it seems like central banks across the world are very actively and dynamically involved in their respective economies. Why is this occurring and is this good or bad for the global economy? The financial crisis of 2008 really shook central bank leadership to the core. Before this time, the global economy had its ups and downs but they were mainly due to nonfinancial factors like wars and government policies. But now we had banks and complex financial products like derivatives threaten to destroy our entire financial infrastructure. Only through massive government intervention were we pulled from the brink of destruction. Clearly, central banks were not going to let this happen again, which partially explains their actions over the last eight years. A second factor directly influencing central bank behavior is the rise of the true global economy. Thirty or 40 years ago, the Fed wouldnt bat an eyelash if the Chinese government devalued the yuan or the Japanese Central Bank cut its interest rates. But today, such a move could have huge repercussions for the United States. For example, if the European Central Bank devalues the euro, the dollar will become stronger, which can negatively impact U.S. manufacturing. As a result, the Fed may feel like it must react, which may result in a reaction from the Bank of England, and so on down the line. Politicians are understanding that central banks can help their respective economies and are putting tremendous pressure on their bank leadership to help deliver that growth. So, is this intervention positive or negative for the economy? In the short run, it is most certainly positive. Bank policies over the last 10 years have stabilized a financial system on the brink of collapse and have nurtured it back to health. Low interest rates have benefited the housing sector and have helped thousands of businesses fund growth. In addition, a strong dollar has kept inflation low in the U.S. and has helped emerging market economies stay strong by making their exports cheaper for industrial nations. But in the long run, I wonder if the Fed and other central banks have done us a great disservice. Sometimes a child needs to fall off the monkey bars to learn to be more careful going forward. First, low interest rates have enabled governments to borrow vast amounts of money to fund budget deficits. But we all know that eventually rates will rise, and how will these institutions pay back these loans? Second, banks have more capital and are better at managing risk, but who doesnt believe that another financial crisis is in our future and that the Fed will have to come to the rescue once again? Should commercial banks and investment banks still operate under the same roof? Would they still be structured that way if the Fed wasnt there to back them up in an emergency? And finally, politicians are now relying on central-bank driven low currencies to boost economic output rather than making hard decisions on tax policy and regulations. Why cut taxes and thus necessitate cutting popular services to a population to spur growth when you can simply devalue a currency to achieve the same effect? We can debate the merits of central bank intervention until we are blue in the face, but the fact remains that we will continue to see their involvement in the foreseeable future. Already we have negative interest rates in a number of countries and that list will grow. And we will see further currency manipulation and direct stimulus. I think this will put a floor on equity prices in the near term because if conditions get too dire, central banks will become more aggressive in their economic assistance. This makes me more bullish on stocks than I would be, given the negative economic news throughout the world. I am also more bullish on bonds, as I believe we will have low interest rates for much longer than priced into the yield curve. But this also means that we are still in store for high volatility, as investors attempt to predict what central banks will do next. Lets all hope they know what they are doing.

Will it stay down? I dont know. Thats way beyond my pay grade. The Portland-based Elite, a company that began in 2006 offering charters for sports teams and business executives, looks toward expanding commercial service in underserved markets such as the greater Naples area. The oil prices are certainly a big factor and it helps us explore new markets, said John Pearsall, president of Elite Airways. The biggest factor at Naples is you see a need for people in the Northeast to come down to Naples and they dont want to do the drive to Fort Myers or other places and so theyre looking at this service. Its a roughly 45-minute drive from Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers to downtown Naples. Fares arent prohibitive, starting at $169 each way and including a checked bag, snacks and beverages. And parking at Naples Municipal is free. These new flights offer great access to our destination for both business and leisure travelers, said Jack Wert, executive director of the Naples, Marco Island, Everglades Convention and Visitors Bureau. The New York and northern New Jersey area is a big supplier of visitors to our part of Florida. I think the other real benefit were going to see, especially in the group market side, is for Marco Island to have a more convenient air connection for group meeting attendees, Mr. Wert said. Thats been something that Marco has had an issue with for years, for a lot of years, and I think its going to help them. All of our travelers have been looking for more direct service and here it is, right into the center of Naples. Starting Feb. 27, Elite will offer weekly nonstop flights to Newark and twiceweekly flights to Newark via the Vero Beach Regional Airport (VRB), and to Portland via Orlando Melbourne International Airport (MLB) as follows. Mr. Pearsall added that its easier for passengers flying to Newark to make a connection to Europe because the flights are in the morning and fly into international Terminal B. And in-state, nonstop flights to Melbourne (MLB) or Vero Beach (VRB) start at $59. Elite originally planned to start flights in December but was delayed as the TSA got set up for commercial service in Naples. Were off to a good start already with booking, Mr. Pearsall said. Were highly confident Naples can support a yearround operation up to the northeast. The Naples Airport Authority commissioned a telephone survey that found 78 percent of Naples and Collier County residents supported the commercial service. But some residents complained that the new flights could be a noise problem in the adjoining residential community and downtown. Mr. Pearsall of Elite and Naples director Mr. Soliday sought to assure residents that the jets wouldnt be noisy and the increase in air traffic small. Mr. Pearsall said Elites jets, the Bombardier CRJ20and CRJ-700, are some of the quietest jets around. Quieter than a large majority of business jets. We want to be a good neighbor in Naples, he said. Mr. Soliday said the commercial flights are a relatively small part of Naples Municipal operations. The airport handles about 100,000 total takeoffs/landings each year including private flights, flight schools, air charter operations and fire and rescue services. Elites commercial service will start with about 260 takeoffs/ landings from the airport each year, or five per week. So theres a lot of room to grow, Mr. Soliday said. But just how much is speculation on top of speculation, he said, adding, I cant imagine getting more than 10 flights a day. We are a small airport. We always will be a small airport. Mr. Pearsall of Elite said, As the service starts to book up well increase the nonstop services, and possibly look at adding another destination. AIRLINEFrom page 1 Taking ight:Starting Feb. 27, Elite will offer weekly nonstop ights from Naples to Newark and twice-weekly ights to Newark via the Vero Beach Regional Airport (VRB), and to Portland via Orlando Melbourne International Airport (MLB) as follows: >> Saturdays: 8:30 a.m. Naples to Newark; 12:15 p.m. Newark to Naples (non-stop each way) >> Thursdays and Sundays: 7:45 a.m. Naples to Newark; 12:15 p.m. Newark to Naples (via VRB) >> Mondays and Fridays: 8:30 a.m. Naples to Portland; 2 p.m. Portland to Naples (via MLB) >> Tickets and information are available at eliteairways.com or 877-393-2510.

B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF FEBRUARY 18-24, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY I trace my roots back to 1976, when my current CEO opened a flower shop called Flora Plenty in New York. Today, based in Long Island, I rake in more than a billion dollars annually, selling gourmet food and floral gifts. I launched my own network of florists, BloomNet, in 1988, and am a fast-growing e-commerce business. You might know some of the brands under my roof, such as Harry & David, Fannie May, Cheryls, The Popcorn Factory, FruitBouquets, Wolfermans, Moose Munch, Fanny Farmer, Harry London and Stock Yards. Its easy to know how to reach me. Who am I? Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Women or Men: Who Invests Better?Wall Street has a rather masculine image, but dont assume that men are better than women when it comes to investing. Plenty of studies suggest otherwise, and all of us might improve our investing by paying attention to the factors likely leading to womens success. Consider the most successful investor of our time, Warren Buffett. In LouAnn Loftons book, Warren Buffett Invests Like a Girl: And Why You Should, Too (HarperBusiness, $15), she notes that Buffett has credited temperament as more important than intellect when it comes to investing success. And his temperament tends to be more feminine than masculine: Hes patient and does thorough research. He doesnt buy into the latest popular technology company that he doesnt understand. He doesnt take excessive risks or jump in and out of stocks. Indeed, he would like to never sell his holdings. He doesnt do something just to do something. So how do women invest? Well, more risk-averse and often less confident than men, they tend to spend more time researching their investment choices. This prevents them from chasing hot tips and trading on whims behavior that tends to weaken mens portfolios. Women are also more likely to seek out information that challenges their assumptions, rather than only relying on data that confirms what they already thought. They tend to save greater portions of their incomes, too despite earning less than men. One study found that men trade 45 percent more often than women do. By trading less, women produce better returns and also save on transaction costs and capital gains taxes. Women even excel as professional investors, with hedge funds managed by women gaining 59 percent between 2007 and mid-2015, versus an overall 37 percent for hedge funds. Robo-advisor SigFig studied the many portfolios in its system owned by men and women, and found that women outperformed men by 12 percent in 2014, and that men were 25 percent more likely to lose money in the market. Being willing to take it slow and ask for help can pay off for all of us. A Misspelled InvestmentSysco was the first stock I ever invested in. I bought shares when I turned 18, and it turned out to be a quality stock. In a way, though, it was a dumb investment stock for me because I thought I was buying Cisco Systems, not Sysco. I literally did NO research before investing. I didnt even know the ticker symbol or how to spell the company name. I.C., onlineThe Fool Responds: Youre lucky that the mix-up ended well for you. Over the past five, 10 and 20 years, Sysco stock outperformed Cisco stock, though both posted gains over those periods. Cisco spent many years as a market darling, as it was a key player in telecommunication equipment. But it has struggled in recent years, facing more competition and price wars, and has been working to transform itself into a more multifaceted information technology company. Over the past five and 10 years, its stock lagged the S&P 500s return. Sysco, meanwhile, is a food distribution powerhouse, with a long history of paying solid dividends. It, too, has faced some challenges, such as inflation and high food costs, competition and tight profit margins. Both companies offer hefty dividend yields, recently topping 3 percent. You were lucky that your ticker-symbol mix-up plunked you in a strong company. Its critical to learn a lot about a company before investing your hard-earned dollars in it. Dialing for DollarsGet your blue chip dividend income here: Telecom giant AT&T (NYSE: T), enjoying subscription-based revenue streams and relatively stable cash flows, pays a dividend that recently yielded 5.3 percent. AT&T is a dividend aristocrat thats upped its payout every year for more than 30 years. The companys $49 billion acquisition of DirecTV is a game changer that will allow AT&T to offer attractive bundles of wireless phone, TV and broadband Internet services. In addition, AT&T gets DirecTVs fast-growing TV business in Latin America. Thanks to this deal, cash flow and earnings should increase, with AT&T projecting $2.5 billion or better annual run-rate cost synergies to help boost its bottom-line growth through 2018. In its fourth quarter, AT&Ts revenue surged, while earnings met expectations. It added 2.8 million wireless connections, though wireless revenue dropped by 5 percent due in part to lower equipment sales. AT&Ts future holds promise, but its not guaranteed to be rosy. The company is facing challenges, such as cord-cutters abandoning pay TV and growing price competition in the wireless arena. Auspiciously, AT&T is investing in a connected world, expanding its high-speed fiber network to dozens of new cities a move that could eventually generate fresh streams of revenue for the company. Its stock seems reasonably to attractively valued at recent levels, but investors should keep an eye on developments while enjoying generous dividend income. I trace my roots back to the launch of a small mining venture in 1902 in Minnesota. One of my early products was waterproof sandpaper that reduced dust. Today Im a major multifaceted manufacturer, raking in more than $30 billion annually and sporting a market value recently near $85 billion. My products number more than 60,000 and include adhesives, tapes, stethoscopes and toilet scrubbers. Im known as a great innovator, with a third of my revenue stemming from products that were invented within the past five year s. You might utter my ticker symbol during a tasty meal. Who am I? (Answer: 3M)Whos on board?QHow can I learn whos on a companys board of directors? J.A., Augusta, GeorgiaATry the company website first, looking for links labeled something like Company Information, About Us, Investors or Corporate Governance. You can also just call the companys investor relations department and ask. Most annual reports detail the members of the board, often with glossy color photos. Youll likely find a list of board members and their responsibilities, compensation and stock ownership in annual 10-K reports and proxy statements that the company files with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Click over to finance.yahoo.com and enter the companys name or ticker symbol. ***QWhat are defined contribution and defined benefit plans? H.T., Pleasanton, CaliforniaATheyre the two main kinds of retirement plans. An old-fashioned pension is a defined benefit plan, with workers knowing exactly what theyll receive in retirement. Employers are tasked with accumulating funds to meet these obligations. In recent decades, though, defined contribution plans, such as 401(k)s and 403(b)s, have become the norm, replacing many traditional pension plans. With them, the amount of money contributed into the plan is defined: You know how much you and your company are depositing into your account. The sum available at retirement, though, is uncertain and will depend on how effectively the contributions are invested. You have more control over defined contribution accounts, as you can usually specify how your dollars will be invested (such as in growth mutual funds, company stock, bonds, etc.). With investment results uncertain, its vital to plan effectively for retirement.

The facility at Naples Municipal Airport, which had a soft opening last fall, is the first of several planned Flexjet-exclusive private terminals at airports where the company experiences the greatest demand. Following Naples, the next Flexjet-exclusive private terminal will open later this year at Westchester County Airport to serve the concentration of Flexjet owners who live north of New York City in the suburban counties of Westchester, N.Y., and Fairfield, Conn. The terminal at NMA offers sheltered and shaded parking facilities, complete with an area to detail owner vehicles while they are away; onsite Flexjet owner representatives who can facilitate all owner needs and assist with current or future flights; and conference rooms, private work spaces and Wi-Fi access. We can refine the owner experience right down to having things such as an owners favorite brand of coffee waiting for them, having their favorite magazine on subscription and also providing an environment in which they can relax and get to know their pilots, Megan Wolf, Flexjet vice president of owner services, said in a press release. We have created an environment in which owners can comfortably interact with their pilots before their flight, she added. This offers a level of confidence, safety and consistency available through no other fractional operator. A member of the Directional Aviation family of companies, Flexjets entered the fractional jet ownership market in 1995. The companys fractional jet ownership program fields an array of business aircraft some of the youngest in the industry, with an average age of approximately six years including the Learjet 75LXi, Challenger 350, the Embraer Legacy 450, Global Express, the Gulfstream G450, G500 and G650 and the Aerion AS2 supersonic business jet.

Campbell Jr. and Richard G. Prebish II (formerly known as Campbell & Prebish, LLC), two well known Naples Luxury Property Icons. This association will create unprecedented value for their customers and the community. Their association will become effective February 12, 2016 and will include the assignment of Campbell & Prebishs prestigious affiliation with Christies International Real Estate, a partnership that was earned over three years ago, providing global exposure for their firms customers. This didnt happen overnight. My relationships with Tom and Richard extend back nearly eight years. Trust me this was a journey we went on together, said Bill Raveis, Chairman and CEO of William Raveis Real Estate. At the end of the day, it distills down to the fact that we share a common culture and philosophy. They are brilliant marketers world-class, really, and their attention to detail, ethics and professionalism are second-to-none. They are truly the most highly regarded firm in Naples. We consider it a privilege to work with them. Its a beautiful fit. Tom Campbell and Richard Prebish have enjoyed many successful years in the real estate business. They launched their company six years ago, specializing in Port Royal, Aqualane, Olde Naples, and luxury beachfront properties. The two companies first considered joining forces nearly three years ago, staying in touch over the years, until this past November, when discussions blossomed into the Campbell & Prebish Team officially joining the Raveis Team. We have a duty to our customers to give them as much exposure as possible in order to successfully sell their properties, said Campbell. Our affiliation with Raveis Real Estate will give us additional exposure throughout the country. Moreover, our customers will continue to have the significant global reach of the Christies world-wide organization. William Raveis is a marketing and technology-driven real estate firm with over 4,200 staff and agents located in 120 offices throughout the Northeast, of which 3,800 are highly trained professional sales associates. The company is an impressive referral network, and attracts over 13 million unique visitors and generates over 30,000 leads a year on raveis.com. A recent poll in the CT Post found that 60 percent of Connecticut residents said they would love to move to Florida. William Raveis is well-positioned to provide a continuation of exceptional hyper-local relationships to these customers. Changing demographics clearly indicate that a greater number of our customers are coming from the Northeast. Our Raveis association will benefit our customers greatly in that they will receive the additional advantage of referrals from the largest family-owned real estate business in the Northeast, concluded Campbell. Campbell & Prebish have always been highly focused on their customers and were going to ensure the continuity of that integrity and unrivalled service, added Raveis. When we add our Northeast footprint, along with technologies like 3D virtual tours and property value forecasting, were going to be able to take this team to an entirely new level. Campbell first visited Naples in 1953 when he came to his grandparents home on the beach, just north of where the Port Royal Club now stands. After graduating from Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, and theUniversity of Pittsburgh School of Law, Campbell served in the US Army. He moved to Naples in 1971. For over 30 years, Campbell and his family lived in the first home (1951) built in the interior of Port Royal. Campbell is a founding member of the Community School of Naples, and a past board member of both the Community School and the Conservancy, receiving the Conservancys Presidents Award in 2002 for his 30-year commitment to protecting and preserving Naples. He was named by the Wall Street Journal as one of the top 200 real estate professionals in the country (he ranked 35th.) Campbell is a member of the Port Royal Club and the Naples Yacht Club. Prebish is originally from Michigan and performed both his undergraduate and graduate studies at the University of Michigan. Soon after his graduation, he moved to Naples where his family had vacationed for three generations. Fittingly, Prebish and Raveis, who lives in Port Royal, met at an open house event Prebish was hosting some eight years ago. The two later connected again when Bill invited Richard to play golf at Royal Poinciana Golf Club, along with his two sons who were visiting from Connecticut. He is a member of the Hole in the Wall Golf Club, board member of the Naples Historical Society, past board member of the University of Michigan Alumni Club of Southwest Florida, as well as a member of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. Tom Campbell and Richard Prebish will remain at the newest William Raveis office where Campbell & Prebish, LLC, is currently located, 792 Broad Avenue South in Naples. William Raveis has two other offices that opened in Naples in January 2016. The first is located at 720 Fifth Avenue South, Suite 201, in downtown Naples, and the second is located in the Newgate Tower, 5150 Tamiami Trail North, Suite 400, near Pine Ridge Road in North Naples.

Kaufman writes in The Art of Grace: On Moving Well Through Life ($24.95, W.W. Nort on). She writes about the wine-down-thepants incident in her introduction. It happened in 1962 in Paris, when Audrey Hepburn and director Stanley Donen met with Cary Grant at a restaurant to discuss working together on the movie Charade. Ms. Hepburn, nervous about meeting the actor, accidentally knocked a bottle of wine into his lap. But Mr. Grant, always a class act, just laughed as if didnt have a care in the world. And the following day, he sent a note and a box of caviar to Ms. Hepburn. And that, says Ms. Kaufman, is the epitome of grace. Her book, which is slated to be rereleased in paperback in the fall, has been positively reviewed by Booklist, Kirkus and Library Journal. It was also named a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers selection for Fall 2015.

A whole host of shows are popping up around town that specialize in rare treasures, but none of them are as highly anticipated or cover as wide a scope as the Naples Art, Antique & Jewelry Show, returning to its self-styled Naples Exhibition Center for the fifth year. Dealers, designers and locals with lots of cash will converge on show Saturday through Tuesday, Feb. 20-23. High-end and exclusive international dealers in antiques, antiquities, jewelry and art will sell have more than $1 billion dollars in inventory at the show that is presented by Scott Diament, whose Palm Beach Show Group produces 10 shows around the country featuring rare goods from top international dealers. The Naples show kicks off with a private preview to benefit the American Red Cross from 6-9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 19, and opens to the public at 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 20. More than 60 exhibitors will offer items that date from two millennia ago to the current age. Collectors will find works by Picasso and Degas at the M.S. Rau Antiques booth and Judaica treasures at Mordechai Collections. Sculpture, jewelry, rare religious artifacts and Russian icons will also be offered. An offshoot of the Palm Beach Jewelry, Art & Antique Show, the Naples show started in 2011 in a large event tent that organizers dubbed the Naples Exhibition Center. This year the tent is set up at 850 GoodletteFrank Road. Over the last few years, according to Mr. Diament, who also owns Provident Jewelers, it became clear that Palm Beach and Naples were very different markets that split between the two divergent sources of wealth in South Florida: the Northeast for Palm Beach and the Midwest in Naples. Neapolitans couldnt be lured to the wellestablished Palm Beach show, a larger and longer show that started 12 years ago, Mr. A 20-carat diamond cuff from Hamilton Jewelers featuring 12 rows of round stones around a baguette diamond center.

We couldnt get people from Collier County over to Palm Beach, so now we bring it to their doorstep. Really wealthy people like it when you bring it to their doorstep. Jewelry and painting sell well at the Naples show, he added. The buyers are very seasoned and also some of the nicest people in the world. New to the Naples circuit this year is Hamilton Jewelers, which operates stores in Palm Beach and Princeton, N.J.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 18-24, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY The characters are based loosely on friends, family.their golden years. It struck a chord with local audiences after originating in Bonita Springs in 2010. Whats more surprising is that it also quickly gained national media attention and attracted audiences to performances across the country. This weekend Rick Compton and Betsy Bennett, the creators and stars of Assisted Living, bring it back to Southwest Florida for three performances at the Centers for the Arts Bonita Springs. Between the two of them and accompanied by Lucille Gaita on piano, Charlie DiGangi on drums and Steve Friedman on bass they play 18 characters in a nonstop, 75-minute performance that crackles with original vaudevillian show tunes, one-liners, double entendres and plenty of Viagra. The show originated as a casual comment tossed off in a parking lot in Bonita Springs, Mr. Compton and Ms. Bennett recalled during a telephone interview. Both seasoned actors and musical theater performers, they had worked together creating shows that satirized local politics and culture, including Much Ado About Naples and A Cracker at The Ritz. One night after a performance in Bonita Springs, the woman who had booked them asked what their next project would be. They didnt have one yet, but Mr. Compton noticed a woman loading her walker into a car and went with what came to mind first. I said just jokingly, I dont know, maybe well do something on assisted living. She thought it sounded fantastic, Mr. Bennett recalled, and insisted on booking it even though the duo had yet to even write it. They got their act together quickly, however, and Assisted Living turned out to be something special from the first performance. People reacted to it with a standing ovation, Ms. Bennett said. We were amazed, Mr. Compton added. We got an incredible visceral reaction. They started performing Assisted Living regularly at Freds Diner in North Naples. The News-Press ran a review and the story was picked up almost immediately by the Associated Press. In the coming weeks it ended up being covered by some 180 media outlets around the country and even the world, including a publication in China, of all places. Mr. Compton recalled doing an interview on Scottish radio. The BBC and ABC World Radio News ran the story as well. My phone started ringing off the hook, Ms. Bennett said. The San Francisco Examiner called the show wickedly funny and the AP noted that, Audiences are laughing so hard, they cry. Looking for help bringing the show to a wider audience, they reached out to New York City theater professionals. A producer and a director came down to see them perform Assisted Living at a supper club in The Villages, a central Florida retirement community on which the show is partly based. Ms. Bennett described The Villages as the party school of retirement villages, but the shows Pelican Roost might be any 55-plus community. The characters are loosely based on people they know: Our friends, Mr. Compton said. Our families. The people we volunteer with. The people we go to dinners with. They all live in these places. One of the shows most emblematic characters, Pelican Roost resident and Realtor Naomi Lipshitz-Yamamoto-Murphy, takes on names as her husbands pass on and she remarries. The show sold out two nights a week at The Villages. Audiences seemed to love it, but the director and producer from New York felt it needed improvements. Mr. Compton and Ms. Bennett flew to the city for the standard show development process, rigorous workshops that take the script apart and put it back together again, fine tuning every detail. They perfected numbers such as Help! Ive Fallen (For You) And I Cant Get Up!, The Uplifting Viagra Medley, The Tatoo and WalkerDude@Facebook Dot Com. They added a doo-wop tune called Goin Mobile. After the New York workshops, Assisted Living opened with an Equity cast in San Francisco. Later, Mr. Compton and Ms. Bennett went on the road themselves, performing at regional theaters and other venues across the country. Last season they had 13 sold-out performances in Phoenix. After this weekend, the duo hits the road again, taking Assisted Living to Hollywood, Calif., and the NoHo Arts District. Although they play married characters in Assisted Living, Ms. Bennett and Mr. Compton arent married in real life. Both live in Naples with their respective significant others. They believe the popularity of Assisted Living and its depiction of how the older half lives is a result of its appeal not just to seniors but to younger audiences as well. After all, its probably where were all headed, if were lucky. If theres a social mission, and frankly there is, its that aging is no more about infirmities and poverty and limitations than youth is all about student debt and hangovers, Mr. Compton said. Theres a whole other story to tell about aging. Nobodys really told that story. We think, we hope, we hope, that were telling that story. Asked their own ages, Mr. Compton answered, Im 65. And with perfect timing, Ms. Bennett said, And Im not.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 18-24, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C5 FLORIDA WRITERSForgiveness: Its something we should do for ourselves Triumph of the Heart: Forgiveness in an Unforgiving World by Megan Feldman Bettencourt. Hudson Street Press. 288 pages. Hardback, $25.95. Forthcoming Avery trade paperback, $16. So many of us are weighed down by negative emotions without truly realizing how much damage they are doing to our quality of life and to those around us. We carry the hurts of real and imagined slights. We continue to agonize over our parents having been distant when we needed them or harshly judgmental when we longed for acceptance if not praise. We cant get past a betrayal of confidence, a two-timing spouse, a boss or teacher who plays favorites and doesnt value our worth. If we are subject to physical abuse, or injured by a texting driver, or crippled on the battlefield or in competitive sports, we carry the anger until it becomes more devastating than the original incident. How can we overcome the rage and grief if a child or wife or parent gets shot to death during a robbery? Our resentment keeps eating us alive. We simply cannot forgive. Why should we? Megan Bettencourt tells us why and how. The first of many illustrative stories in this inspiring book is about Azim Khamisa, who in January 1995 received a phone call telling him that his 20-year-old son Tariq had been shot dead. The murderer, a 14-year-old gang member named Tony, had fired on Tariq while attempting to rob him. The healing relationship between Azim, Tony and Tonys grandfather, one that dramatically introduces the psychological benefits of forgiveness and the means to exercise it, sets the tone for the rest of Ms. Bettencourts book. Azim founded and administers the Tarik Khamisa Foundation, a model educational institution for putting endangered youths on the right path. Azim turned his loss into something magical, and his forgiveness of Tony and friendship with Tonys grandfather were part of the process, as was a form of meditation. Ms. Bettencourt learned a lot by witnessing Azim in action, including the fact that she needed to address her own problems through the process of forgiveness so that she could reclaim her life. Triumph of the Heart proceeds on three tracks. One grows out of interviews conducted by the author that lead to a wide variety of forgiveness case studies. Because she is a stellar journalist, Ms. Bettencourt was able to probe deeper and deeper into the experiences of those who had found hope, peace and happiness through first choosing to forgive and then learning how to do so successfully. Its not always easy, nor is always a straightforward process without setbacks. The second track is the authors own story, which has various components (her upbringing, a failed marriage, career frustrations) with the common denominator of despair and self-doubt. Her journey personalizes the issue and lends authority to the suggestions she offers to others. The third track involves what Ill call the science of forgiveness. Readers receive a clear, vivid overview of studies that have been done and research that is ongoing to help build an understanding of how forgiveness works. Along this track readers will find the experiences of medical professionals with patients for whom forgiveness was a path to healing and well being, just as its absence was one cause of ongoing pain and paralysis. A repeat theme is that forgiveness is something one does for ones self. It might have benefits for the forgiven person, but that is not the point of the book. Forgiveness sometimes means or follows self-forgiveness. Although there is much to admire in each chapter, I found most gripping The Role of Redemption, Forgiving Our Parents and Forgiveness as a Chain Reaction. Many of the chapters are usefully subdivided, and many sections are worth returning to several times. Each reader will find his or her needs and interests met through different examples or suggestions. An appendix on Forgiveness Practices allows for immediate application of the books many tools. This is not a book of platitudes, but of practical, therapeutic wisdom made all the more valuable by the fact that it is also very uplifting. The author will speak as part of the Collier County Jewish Book Festival from 6:30-9 p.m. Monday, March 14, at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greater Naples. She shares a session on inspiration with Rabbi Goldie Milgrim, the editor of New Mitzvah Stories. Purchase tickets at jewishbookfestival.org.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF FEBRUARY 18-24, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Whether you need a car, truck or van, Enterprise is the perfect choice. 1 800 rent-a-car enterprise.com W h Pick-up subject to geographic and other restrictions. 2015 Enterprise Rent-A-Car G00131 8/15 ARTS COMMENTARY Delivering the verdict on Twelve Angry Men: See itFor most of the men who walk into Jury Room No. 3 to deliberate on the case thats just been presented to them, its open-andshut: The 16-year-old boy on trial is guilty of murdering his father. No question about it. Case closed. They dont think its worth discussing, even though a guilty verdict means the boy will be sentenced to death and die in an electric chair. Juror No. 7 (Greg Longenhagen) has tickets to a ballgame that night and doesnt want to miss it. The others have made up their minds already. Its the hottest day of the year, and they just want to go home and go back to their lives. All except for Juror No. 8 (V. Craig Heidenreich), who says he has a reasonable doubt and calls for a vote. Hes appalled his fellow jurors would convict without any discussion, especially with a human life in the balance. And so begins Twelve Angry Men. You might think watching a dozen men discuss a court case especially one you havent even been privy to would be unbearably tedious. Even the environment (designed by Dennis Maulden) a dingy, institutional room with smudged windows and heavy, wood chairs and table seems intensely boring. But this play is anything but. Twelve Angry Men is gripping, dramatic, suspenseful. Director Charles Morey keeps the play moving along with no lulls or dull spots. Its a skill to have this many actors onstage all at once, and yet keep it dynamic and realistic. The men on the jury are of varying ages, professions, backgrounds. But they are all male. And all white. Playwright Reginald Roses script never specifically says what the defendant is, racially or ethnically. But we do know the boy has had a rough life. His mother died when he was 9, and his father, who has served time in prison, beats him with his fists. He lives in a slum. Hes no angel; hes been in scrapes with the law before. And the evidence seems pretty damning. Hes definitely seen as other by these jurors, one of who, at one point, refers to those people. The room is hot. The men are tired. Theyre annoyed, angry that this one lone juror is keeping them from going home. Mr. Heidenreich plays the role just right; hes not claiming the boy is innocent, but he has certain doubts, and raises questions he feels should have been raised by the boys lawyer a public defender appointed by the court. He takes his role as a juror seriously. Though the play is more than 60 years old, Twelve Angry Men is as highly relevant and just as fresh as todays news. Originally a televised play on CBSs Studio One in 1954 and then a Broadway play, it gives us a ringside seat to what goes on in a jury room. It demonstrates how our judicial system is both a wonderful and scary thing. Theres supposed to be a presumption of innocence until proven guilty. Jurors are supposed to be impartial. Jurors are also supposed to give a non-guilty verdict if theres any reasonable doubt; the prosecution must prove its case. But justice doesnt always happen. Certain not-guilty verdicts in murder cases in recent years, where juries appear to ignore the facts and hand down verdicts based purely on race, have sparked outrage and protests nationwide. Google the phrase exonerated after 30 years in prison and youll find numerous accounts of innocent men in Texas, Alabama, New York, Pennsylv ania, who were wrongly accused and spent three decades of their lives behind bars. The world was appalled by the ruling in a case late last year in the UK of a Saudi millionaire on trial for raping an 18-yearold-girl who was asleep on a couch. He claimed that he might have tripped and fallen on her, accidentally penetrating her. Apparently finding that explanation plausible, the jury acquitted him after only 30 minutes of deliberation. Florida Reps Twelve Angry Men is a stunning ensemble piece. With 13 actors (theres a court guard as well as the jurors), there are too many to praise by name. Mr. Heidenreich, as Juror No. 8, is a decent guy, noble. Hes the conscience of the jury room. (Costume designer Stefanie Genda has dressed him in a light-colored suit, subtly signifying his goodness.) Graham Swift, who manages to disguise and transform himself with every new role, plays Juror No. 11, an immigrant with great respect for the American judicial system. Local actor Stephen Hooper plays mildmannered Juror No. 2, a milquetoast man who appears afraid of this own shadow. And although Chet Carlin as Juror No. 9 doesnt have many lines, he makes the most of the ones he does have, as an endearing older man who at one point, itching to get into a f ight, mutters, Id like to be a little younger! Mr. Longenhagen, as Juror No. 7, provides much comic relief. Though hes sitting, you can tell hes anxious to leave, from his jittery leg and pencil tapping on the tabletop. Hes as irritating as a mosquito, a little bantam rooster who thinks hes a heavyweight. But he makes you laugh almost every time he opens his mouth. Other ensemble members besides Mr. Longenhagen include Jason Parrish as Juror No. 1, the foreman. His character, a high school football coach from Queens, tries to be fair and control the other jurors, but they are stronger-willed and rowdier than the boys he coaches. Peter Thomasson, who recently played the Devil in Fla Reps The Seafarer and the rich father in The Cocktail Hour, is Juror No. 4, a buttoned-down broker in a dark three-piece suit, there because its his civic duty and obviously feeling superior to the others. But it is Craig Bockhorn (The Seafarer) as Juror No. 3 and ensemble member William McNulty (Red) as Juror No. 10, who provide most of the plays fire and venom in scenes that practically explode off the stage. They are both bullies, terrorizing the rest of the jurors and pressuring them to deliver a guilty verdict. Mr. McNultys bigoted diatribe against immigrants and those people is so ugly it shocks the others into silence. Twelve Angry Men has been touted as demonstration of our judicial system at work, but it is also a primer in how to identify bullying. Jurors No. 3 and No. 10 are the epitome of bullies; watching them, you see exactly how bullies operate: They attempt to get their way by intimidating or threatening others. They yell especially when logic and facts are not in their favor. They use verbal abuse and even physical force or the threat of it when theyre not getting their way. They are anti-intellectualism, claiming, When you think too much, you get mixed up. They steamroll everyone else, as if their opinions are the only ones that count. They mock others, calling them names or insulting them. Weve all run into people like this in the playground, at home, in the office or in the political arena. Edmund Burke famously said that, All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. Twelve Angry Men shows what can happen when good men, despite their fears, speak up.Nancys pickTheatre Conspiracy is on a roll. Following the success of The Amish Project, the company presents The Bluest Eye, Lydia Diamonds play based on Toni Morrisons novel of the same name. Its a stunning production, imbued with Ms. Morrisons lyricism and humor, which help balance out the horror of some of the incidents depicted. Pecola is an 11-year-old girl who despises her black skin and longs for blue eyes. She reasons that if she had blue eyes, everyone would love her and she would not be invisible to those around her. This is a remarkable production with quality acting from everyone in the cast. Only a few performances remain at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers through Feb. 20.

And, by the way, you might be surprised at who makes the request. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Reassure everyone concerned that a change of mind isnt necessarily a change of heart. You might still want to pursue a specific goal, but feel a need to change the way youll get there. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Whatever decisions youre faced with this week, rely on your strong Aries instincts, and base them on your honest feelings, not necessarily on what others might expect you to do. TAURUS (April 30 to May 20) Your sensitive Taurean spirit is pained by what you feel is an unwarranted attack by a miffed colleague. But your sensible self should see it as proof that you must be doing something right. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) More fine-tuning might be in order before you can be absolutely certain that youre on the right track. Someone close to you might offer to help. The weekend favors family get-togethers. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The week continues to be a balancing act twixt dreaming and doing. But by weeks end, you should have a much better idea of what you actually plan to do and how you plan to do it. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Changing your plans can be risky, but it can also be a necessary move. Recheck your facts before you act. Tense encounters should ease by midweek, and all should be well by the weekend. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You might still be trying to adjust to recent changes. But things should improve considerably as you get to see some positive results. An uneasy personal matter calls for more patience. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Congratulations. Your good intentions are finally recognized, and long-overdue appreciation should follow. Keep working toward improvements wherever you think theyre necessary. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 2) Try to look at your options without prejudging any of them. Learn the facts, and then make your assessments. Spend the weekend enjoying films, plays and musical events. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Someone might want to take advantage of the Sagittarians sense of fair play. But before you ride off to right what youve been told is a wrong, be sure of your facts. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You might be surprised to learn that not everyone agrees with your ideas. But this can prove to be a good thing. Go over them and see where improvements can be made. BORN THIS WEEK: You are able to make room in your heart for others, and that makes you a very special person in their lives. PUZZLES

It is far less obvious, though, that after a low diamond lead the suit is triply stopped with proper play. South failed to recognize this and, as a result, lost the contract. He covered the diamond four with the six and won East's seven with the nine. After playing a spade to the king, he finessed the jack of hearts, losing to Wests queen. Back came the king of diamonds, which declarer ducked, followed by the queen. South won but could do no better than lead another heart. West took the ace and cashed the 8-2 of diamonds to set the contract. South should have made four notrump, however. His only real concern was to establish his hearts before West could establish his diamonds, and he should have concentrated all his efforts on this one goal. By applying the Rule of Eleven (assuming that West's diamond lead is fourth-best), declarer can tell that East has only one diamond higher than the four. (South deducts four the card led from 11, leaving seven cards other than the four in the North, East and South hands. With six of those cards in plain view, East can have only one card higher than the four.) South should therefore play the ten from dummy on the opening lead. If East's diamond is the seven or eight, the ten wins, and South is certain of a triple stopper. If Easts diamond is the queen or king, South wins with the ace and is again sure to have the suit triply stopped. By playing high from dummy at trick one, South makes certain of winning the race for the establishment of his long suit. He starts out a step ahead and makes sure he stays there the rest of the way.

Miller) Diagnosed with terminal cancer, bad boy and reluctant hero Wade Wilson (Mr. Reynolds) undergoes treatment that makes him a mutant (the story takes place in the X-Men universe). The problem is hes now deformed, seeking revenge and worried his girlfriend (Ms. Baccarin) will no longer want to be with him. Sex, violence, profanity, great action, lots of laughs its everything a superhero movie should always be and almost never is. Except now. Rated R.How To Be Single (Dakota Johnson, Rebel Wilson, Alison Brie) New York City singles find themselves among friends not romantic partners in this smart comedy. Ms. Wilson gets the biggest laughs with Leslie Mann coming in a close second. Best of all, this film allows people to be single and happy, which is a rarity in movies. Rated R.Hail, Caesar! 1/2(George Clooney, Scarlett Johansson, Josh Brolin) In 1950s Hollywood, a studio boss (Mr. Brolin) struggles to find his star actor (Mr. Clooney) after he goes missing. Neither funny nor smart, its a major disappointment from the Coen Bros. (The Big Lebowski). Rated PG-13.The Finest Hours (Chris Pine, Casey Affleck, Eric Bana) In the winter of 1952, f our men in the Coast Guard set sail near Cape Cod, Mass., to save the survivors of a shipwrecked oil tanker. Its a harrowing action drama with solid visual effects and action. Rated PG-13.45 Years 1/2(Charlotte Rampling, Tom Courtenay, Geraldine James) In the week leading up to their 45th anniversary party, Geoff (Mr. Courtenay) and Kate (Ms. Rampling) discover surprising news from Geoffs past that shakes the foundation of their marriage. The story feels honest and realistic, and Ms. Rampling deserves her Oscar nomination (note how she emotes with her body and face, not just her words). Rated R.Kung Fu Panda 3 1/2(Voices of Jack Black, J.K. Simmons, Angelina Jolie) With the villain Kai (Mr. Simmons) stealing the Chi of kung fu masters everywhere, its up to Po (Mr. Black) to save the day. Its a by-the-numbers sequel thats silly and fun enough to keep kids entertained for 95 minutes. Rated PG.13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi (John Krasinski, James Badge Dale, Pablo Schreiber) With the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, under attack in September 2012, six ex-military hired guns hold their ground. The film feels gritty and real, and is better because the visual effects are kept to a minimum, which is a surprise from director Michael Bay (Transformers). Rated R.

It also provides insight into farming and surviving winter in 1630s New England and thank goodness it does, as now I know to stock up during harvest season so I can stay bountiful during the winter months. The point is, The Witch spends so much time in minutiae that it almost always feels slow. In a way writer/director Robert Eggers is reflecting the painfully dull pace of life for the unfortunate family forced to live on its own in the wilderness after being cast out from civilization for being the wrong type of religious. Parents William (Ralph Ineson) and Katherine (Kate Dickie) are loving and attentive, oldest daughter Thomasin (Anya Taylor-Joy) also looks after her siblings, oldest son Caleb (Harvey Scrimshaw) looks inappropriately at his older sister, but hes a teenager and there are no girls his age nearby, so we kind of understand why. Twins Mercy (Ellie Grainger) and Jonas (Lucas Dawson) are a handful, while newborn Sam just needs to be kept alive, which Thomasin fails to do. Based on actual folklore of witchcraft and black magic, the story is reportedly set at the time when these stories originated. The most famous tale of this kind that of the Salem Witch Trials in Massachusetts took place roughly 60 years after the events of The Witch, and one can see how the fearful mindset seen in the film could evolve to what occurred in Salem. Yet this logically doesnt work. The family in The Witch thinks differently from the rest of its peers and is therefore banished to the woods, at which point no one in civilization ever hears from them again. If they think differently, i.e., are more God-fearing and prone to believing in witchcraft, and away from others whom they could influence and/or be influenced by, its hard to conclude that their mindset is typical of the time and therefore could have evolved into what happened in Salem. Regardless, its all a bore. Scenes with witches are random and inconsistent, while moments of demonic possession are unconvincing. For a long time, the characters arent sure whats happening or what to believe, but the audience is sure because we see the witches up to no good. Having the audience ahead of the characters makes watching these people tedious and does the story a disservice because we know where everything is headed. Why give away the witches so early? One of the appealing elements of the Salem Witch Trials, historians say, is that it was all in peoples heads rather than any facet of reality. As the writer and director, Mr. Eggers could have played with that idea before a big reveal of actual witchcraft later in the film. As is, he gives away the good stuff too soon. Watching The Witch was the longest 90 minutes of my life. Spend your 90 minutes elsewhere.

Mark & Mary Cheng KOVEL: ANTIQUESPatient prison artists used resources at hand BY TERRY AND KIM KOVELThere are many kinds of folk art, but some of the strangest collectibles are called prison art, which is art made by prisoners in prisons or jails using the very unorthodox materials that are available. In earlier centuries, when prisons often were on islands or in isolated places, inmates carved coconuts, tortoiseshells or shells. By the 19th century, now very valuable sailing ship models were made of scraps of wood with thread or string for rigging and fabric for sails. Today, these amazing scale model ships made by captured French sailors sell for thousands of dollars each. In the 20th century, toothpicks and matchsticks by the hundreds were carefully put together to make buildings or boxes or toys. Old cigar boxes were taken apart and the pieces were carved to make picture frames or boxes with clever geometric carvings. And the wannabe painter used a white handkerchief and a pen to draw detailed black and white pictures. Much of this work was sold to visitors along with some of the more familiar paintings on board or canvas. The money went to the prisoner-artist to use at the prison store. A very elaborate Ferris wheel with surrounding fair buildings was made of thousands of toothpicks and lots of patience. A ticket booth and entries to the fair are covered with paper printed like bricks. There are 12 chairs with red cellophane seats on the wheel, and a flat, wooden base and border with fence posts. But most amazing is that the chairs swing while the Ferris wheel turns. And it is almost all made from toothpicks. The construction is covered by a Plexiglas case with a label explaining that the art was made by an Ohio State Prison inmate between 1940 and 1950. It sold at an Ohio auction for $660 at the end of 2015. Q: I have a table marked Kiel Furniture Co., Milwaukee, Wis., Guaranteed Quality. The top needs to be refinished. Can you tell me when it was made and if its worth refinishing? This working model of a Ferris wheel is almost two feet high and made from toothpicks. It took a bid of $660 to take it home from a Cowan auction in Ohio.

The area had plenty of lumber and skilled labor. The name of the company became Kiel Furniture Company in 1907. It bought a factory in Milwaukee in 1920 and made dining-room furniture there and smaller pieces of furniture in Kiel. The factory in Milwaukee closed in 1932. The factory in Kiel became A.A. Laun Furniture Co. in 1935. The table would sell as used furniture, but the price will be lower if the top is not in good shape. A 1925 Kiel Furniture table with inlaid decoration and six legs sold for $138. Q: Can you tell me the value of a charm bracelet with four cigarette packs on it? It has packs of Camel, Chesterfield, Lucky Strikes and Old Gold cigarettes. The Chesterfield pack has paint loss. A: The charms picture the four cigarette brands that were the top sellers in 1930 and were among the top five in 1940. Charm bracelets like this sell online for $50-$130 if in good condition. Each cigarette pack charm has cigarettes that move up and down in the pack. Your bracelet with paint loss would not be worth very much, less than $75. Q: I have an old cast-iron pencil sharpener marked Guhl & Harbeck, Hamberg, Germany, U.S.P. What is it worth? A: Guhl & Harbeck was founded by Heinrich Guhl and Christian Harbeck in Hamberg, Germany, in 1867. After Harbeck died in 1899, Guhl ran the business. Members of Guhls family operated the company until it closed in 1970. Guhl & Harbeck started out making sewing machines and later expanded into typewriters and other office equipment. The company patented its Jupiter pencil sharpener in 1897. It sold for $10, expensive for that era. Several Jupiter model pencil sharpeners were made and many sold in the United States. Value depends on age and condition. An early pencil sharpener in good to excellent condition might be sold for about $275. Q: I have a stoneware jug that was passed down to me from my grandmother. Its 14 inches high and is decorated with a blue flower in a pot and the name Somerset Potters Works and the No. 2. The jug has a handle and its original cork. Its larger at the top than at the bottom. Im downsizing and would like to sell it. What is a good price for both the buyer and me? A: There were several potteries in Somerset, Massachusetts, during the early 1800s. Somerset Potters Works, also known as L.& B.G. Chase Pottery, was in business in Somerset from 1847 to 1882. Brothers Leonard and Benjamin G. Chase started making stoneware about 1838. Somerset Potters Works was incorporated in 1847 with Leonard Chase listed as agent. Crocks, jars, bean pots, bowls and other stoneware items were made. The pottery was reorganized in 1882 and a new line of pottery was made. Stoneware jugs made by Somerset Potters Works sell at auction for about $200 to $250. Tip: Gemstones are colder to the touch than glass. Colored gems like emeralds, rubies and sapphires should not appear scratched. If there are scratches, the stone probably is colored glass.

For more information go to: ww.NaplesOrchidSociety.orgI love attending shows antiques shows, as well as the specialty doll, toy, glass and pottery shows. You get to see the spectrum of antiques, and specialty shows often give you an opportunity to see the best of the best museum-quality pieces often are among the pickings. That was the case at the South Florida Depression Glass Clubs recent show in Pompano Beach. Beautiful objects, often with high prices. But many of those prices were much lower than I would have expected red Imperial Cod goblets at $18 apiece, rare pieces of Cambridge Glass Co.s opaque colors priced at below $100. I remember a time when I was happy to buy those Cape Cod goblets at $20 apiece for resale, and when even minor pieces of Cambridges rarely seen Primrose, Helio and other opaque colors started at around $100. That was in the 1990s. Heck, even a Steuben Aurene bowl that would have been $400 all day a few years ago was priced at $125 (yes, I bought it). But thats part of the cycle of antiques and collectibles. Heres whats scary about the latest trend: When I started collecting as a boy back in the 1970s, I was the youngest person at the show. I hate to admit it, but even now that Im north of a certain age, I was the youngest person at the glass show. Most of my friends and the dealers at the glass show easily are 15 to 20 years older than I am, on up. Shucks, even my mother, now in her 70s, was one of the younger folks at the show, and I see that time and time again at other specialty shows as well. The value of the glass, popular with folks who grew up with it in the 1940s and s is on the wane as those people stop adding to their collections or start liquidating them. Like me, most of my friends at the show were there for the sheer love of the glass, and had not thought of it as an investment at least not entirely. I think thats the best approach to any collection. Buy it because you like it, but dont plan to retire off the proceeds. Otherwise, youll be disappointed. scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org COLLECTORS CORNERWhen it comes to collecting, buy it because you like it
A special supplement produced by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | WINTER 2016 INSIDE: Roadmap to Sustainability 3 Sustainability at a glance 4 our GIVING MATTERS There is a lot to be said about a good fit. When a person, idea or concept is the right match in an organization great things can happen. Business gurus have long heralded the idea of getting the right people in the right seats on the bus to create a dynamic team. At the Southwest Florida Community Foundation much of our work centers on identifying good fits for our region. We work hard to match donors to organizations that are creating the change they want to see in the world, we convene stakeholders who possess the right skills and resources to design solutions and opportunities, and we find the most flexible vehicles for philanthropists to customize their giving. We are always on the lookout for potential projects that are the right fit to create regional change for the common good. In this issue of Our Community, we are focused on a sustainable Southwest Florida. We think the idea of doing the most good for the community right now while protecting it for the future is important. This long view is the cornerstone of a community foundation. We are charged with doing things For Good, For Ever. But how do we know if we are successful? Forever is a very long time. In this issue you will learn more about the concept of a sustainable Southwest Florida and how we can all work together to create a region focused on the evolving economic, social and environmental needs of our community. When Lee County talked to us about taking on its countywide sustainability plan we recognized a good fit right away. Sustainability is at the center of everything we do and with great partners in business, government and the social sector we realized we could build a regional framework and map that helps all of us collaborate, measure success and understand community priorities. As you dive into these pages I hope you can identify where you fit in and we can begin this journey together of creating a place where people want to live, learn, work and play. In other words making our region a good fit for its residents now and in the future. Here we go. O C OWEN SarahPresident & CEO Southwest Florida Community Foundation Why Us? Why Now?WHAT IF SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WORKED TOGETHER TO better prepare every student for post-secondary success and a career? Would our sons, daughters and grandchildren decide to stay here and find satisfying jobs? What if the preservation of our regions natural beauty became a model for the nation? What if the impact of your philanthropic dollars reached even deeper to improve the economic, social and environmental health of the region? What if our region became known as an innovator with its eye on sustainability? Would more businesses start, stay, expand and relocate here? What if we made a commitment to creating and continually assessing the sustainability of our community? Would we improve the quality of life for residents 50 or 100 years from now? These are important questions were asking ourselves and our community at the Southwest Florida Community Foundation.

| A special supplement produced by the Southwest Florida Community Foundation | | WINTER 2016 2 | o u r solutions, we can design a better place where people want to live, learn, work and play now and in the future. A sustainable Southwest Florida is a community that survives and thrives. Sustainability impacts everyone, crisscrossing city and county borders, interconnecting people, values and causes in exciting collaborations, and multiplying donors investments in the community. Sustainability aligns and advances goals, objectives, work, passions and causes, said Sarah Owen, president and CEO for the Southwest Florida Community Foundation. It helps philanthropists and residents understand and see the impact of their dollars, gives students the opportunity to receive the type of education that will prepare them for well-paying jobs, and assists us in developing more effective and efficient programs for people served. Sustainability is also a love story, an all-encompassing vision of a community improving the quality of life for future generations in this special region we call home. Together we play a role in mapping and measuring regional sustainability in a meaningful way and continually moving forward as advocates for regional change. The framework is already in place. Last April the Lee County Board of Commissioners transferred CompleteLee: A sustainability plan to the Southwest Florida Community Foundation. They recognized as a partner with educators, governments, nonprofits and citizens, we were already spearheading sustainability by engaging community stakeholders in important conversations and connecting philanthropists and donors with their causes to solve regional issues. The existing framework will also serve as the springboard for a regional roadmap for long-term change. Sustainability is at the center of everything we do and it has been for 40 years, said Ms. Owen. No single entity can create a sustainable Southwest Florida. It takes all of us to look at a more expansive vision. We want our partners and donors to realize they are not alone in advocating for a cause; whatever theyre working on is contributing to regional change. We are all interconnected. The plan will foster new collaborations, strengthen existing ones and help partners identify and incentivize synergies. In the business world, companies are aligning sustainability with the goals and values of the company. Executives have cited cost-cutting or reputation management as top reasons for pursuing sustainability initiatives, said Tessa LeSage, the foundations director of social innovation and sustainability. A 2014 McKinsey & Co. report found 43 percent of executives the largest number ever and up from 30 percent in 2012 are describing a shift in thinking. Operating at this level allows companies to offer more jobs and higher wages. From a business standpoint, sustainability is about balancing resources in the office, how you operate your business, the way you treat employees and how youre involved in the community and giving back in a meaningful way, said Jonathan Romine, a partner in EnSite, a Fort Myers design firm specializing in sustainable planning, landscape architecture, civil engineering and urban design. If youre in business in this community, you need to roll up your sleeves and get involved wherever it will make the most impact. EnSite supports the areas major education nonprofits and initiatives and Mr. Romine serves on the board of the Imaginarium and mentors students.Im a firm believer education is the great equalizer, he said. The end goal of sustainability is creating a better place where we make a living, put food on our table and give back to the community. By laying the framework for sustainability were putting a vision in place, not for today or even in our lifetimes, but for the community 50 years from now.Gartner, which specializes in information technology research and technology advice for businesses, has enjoyed tremendous success in Southwest Florida since opening its Fort Myers office in 1998. Fort Myers is a good location for Gartner due to the talented local workforce, the excellent environment that attracts people from across the country, and the competitive cost of living compared to other locations in the US, said Andrew Spender, a spokesperson for the Stamford, Conn.-based business. We have grown by approximately 200 new associates each year for several years and have plans to continue to grow at the same pace. Gartner now employs more than 900, has expanded to two buildings and is constructing a training center that will open this summer and continue to introduce employees and prospective residents to Southwest Florida. Employee salaries average more than $60,000 plus benefits and uncapped earning potential for its sales team. It recruits locally from all backgrounds, including tourism, construction, recent graduates and experienced associates for sales, said Mr. Spender. While the companys sales associates have the opportunity to request transfers to any of Gartners locations worldwide, its local finance and client services teams are from Southwest Florida or have opted for permanent residency here, according to Nate Swan, group vice president of sales in Fort Myers. A lot of employees come down here and realize they can start a family and buy a home, he said. There are a lot of great things that make this area so attractive. We get good people. Mr. Romine, who was involved in creating CompleteLee, said the successes of Lee Countys sustainability plan will create a spinoff throughout Southwest Florida. Collaboration between government, education, nonprofit organizations, residents and philanthropists are the key to sustainability, as is collecting and measuring data and outc omes to demonstrate the regions resiliency and desirability as a great place to live, learn, work and play. Communities that arent resilient face long-term challenges. Dubuque, Iowa, started looking at sustainability after a series of major business closings and downsizing in the 1980s. By adapting sustainability as core values and working with its community foundation, the city successfully attracted new businesses and residents and is introducing programs that make a difference in the quality of life. We look at sustainability as a holistic system-wide approach from the top down to grassroots leadership, said Cori Burbach, the citys sustainable community coordinator. One of our biggest driving factors was improving our workforce, investing in existing businesses, exploring new markets and looking at the people piece creating a community where people want to live. The city turned to the local community foundation to understand the challenges affecting Dubuque. It assembled a group of employers and educators to study issues such as reliable day care and transportation to keep students in school and adults in jobs. Sustainability is the interconnectedness of our social system, business and environment, Ms. Burbach said. Its about collective impact and challenges I can bring the community around to move the needle. Dubuque was recognized in 2015 as a four-STAR Sustainability Tools for Access and Rating Community. Lee County was a pilot participant in the national STAR program and is among 44 threeto five-star rated communities benefiting from a comprehensive datadriven rating system evaluating qualityof-life issues everything from healthcare, housing affordability, workforce readiness, emergency response times and how safe residents feel. In Broward County, sustainability has been a game changer, said Jill Horwitz, a natural resources specialist in its environmental planning and community resilience division. Were carrying our partners messages, were looking at grants very differently now, and were refocusing our efforts to make sure were doing whats good for the community, she said. Were making sure programs are hitting multiple targets and were designing more effective programs and policies. Its worth the time to build relationships; thats what a community is all about.

Copyright EconomicIF YOURE PASSIONATE ABOUT ENSURING A STRONG, DIVERSE LOCAL economy, sustainability is for you. In business, sustainability continues to rise in the ranks of importance as a core business issue. In the past, executives have cited cost-cutting or reputation management as top reasons for pursuing sustainability initiatives. A 2014 McKinsey & Company, found 43 percent of executives (the largest share, up from 30 percent in 2012) are describing a shift in thinking and are aligning sustainability with the goals, mission, or values of the company. What if Southwest Florida became known as a region that has its eye on sustainability? Would business more often bet on starting, staying, expanding, and relocating to Southwest Florida? SocialDOES YOUR PASSION FALL IN THE REALM OF SOCIAL ISSUES? THEN theres something in sustainability for you. This is where arts and culture, education, transportation, healthcare, livability and opportunities for social mobility come into play. Government and non-profits provide many services aimed at addressing social problems and providing opportunities but too often we fall into a cycle of providing services without really understanding the impact the work has on the people we serve. Understanding and promoting the social realm of a sustainable region reduces duplication, increases funding opportunities, and enhances the ability to collaborate and innovate.EnvironmentTOO OFTEN WE VIEW THE ENVIRONMENT AS THE SOLE BENEFIciary of sustainability initiatives, which is a misunderstanding. The protection and preservation of natural resources must be balanced with the economic and social aspects of a highly desirable, sustainable region and within the context of the issue at hand. The environment is a point of passion for many in Southwest Florida because it is the very reason they choose to visit, live, or do business here. The environment provides the resources we need to live, habitat for other living-beings, opportunities to learn, prospects for innovative growth, and creates the backdrop for recreation and many attractions for tourism. O CSustainability at a Glance Foundation is well into that dialogue, measuring program outc omes, bringing stakeholders to the table and connecting donors with social, economic and environmental issues. It has already built these relationships, said Ms. Owen. The social component of regional sustainability encompasses arts and culture, education, transportation, healthcare, livability and opportunities for social mobility. Government and non-profits often provide many of these services and a sustainability framework allows them to gauge the impact of the work for the people served. Sustainability reduces duplication of services, increases funding opportunities, and enhances the ability to collaborate and innovate, Ms. LeSage said. Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida has created a self-sustaining business model that generates money through the resale and recycling of donations in its stores to hire and train employees. For us, sustainability ensures we are a viable nonprofit run like a business, said Jennifer Nelson, senior director of operations. We are focused on spending less money so we can serve more people and collaborate with like-minded partners which is also important to make a community sustainable. Enterprise Holdings has committed to sustainability and community stewardship with the next generation in mind. Its corporate sustainability report holds the family-owned company accountable to principles balancing the interests of customers, employees and the parts of the world where it operates vehicle rental locations. In Florida Enterprise has demonstrated the companys overarching commitment to implement sustainable practices by hiring and purchasing locally. During its most recent fiscal year Enterprise Holdings made more than $20 million in companywide purchases from diverse Florida-based suppliers, including certified minorityand women-owned businesses. Operations throughout the state also reduced energy and water usage by as much as 20 percent.The investments we make in our neighborhoods here in Florida not only help us grow and improve our business, but also make a positive difference in peoples lives, said Rob Wilson, vice president and general manager for Enterprise Holdings Southwest Florida. By creating jobs, providing sustainable transportation alternatives and stimulating growth through our business and philanthropic efforts, were not just serving our customers were strengthening Floridas communities.Southwest Floridas environmental resources pristine local, state and national parks, its Gulf of Mexico beaches, rural communities and climate also influence the sustainability equation. Its this setting that brings residents and potential residents to play, stay, live and work.A strong economy in Southwest Florida depends on protecting our unique environment. It sets us apart from everywhere else in the state and country, Ms. LeSage said. The preservation of natural resources must be balanced with the economic and social aspects of a highly desirable, sustainable region and within the context of the issue at hand. Were excited about introducing community sustainability on a regional level, added Ms. Owen. This complements and expands the work of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation. Sustainability is an ongoing process evolving with the changing needs of our community. With endowment as one of the important tools we offer donors, they can give to their passion in perpetuity, we can offer so many sustainable solutions. Were in this together and forever.

CELEBRITY EXTRAFriends greatly mourn Alan Rickman BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: Like so many others, I was devastated to learn of the death of Alan Rickman. How are his friends and former castmates doing? Yvette R., via emailA: When I visited Universal Studios Florida recently for the Celebration of Harry Potter Expo, the cast that were on hand paid tribute to working with such a giving, lovely and incredible man. Rupert Grint, who played Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter films, told us that when he learned of Alans death, he felt like he had been sideswiped. I was devastated, actually. G utted. He was such an amazing man. I have so many memories of him. I remember once in one of the early films, I drew a picture of him in Potions class. It wasnt the most flattering portrait. I can remember feeling him breathing down my neck watching me do it, and I was absolutely terrified (laughs). But he was really cool about it; in the end, he kept it. He was just the sweetest guy very special, and Im just so sad to see him go." Q: Is there going to be a sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman? I know Chris Hemsworth is busy being Thor, but I would love to see him play the Huntsman again. Bobbie T., Grand Rapids, Mich.A: As of now there are no plans for a sequel; however, come April 22, the prequel will be hitting theaters. The Huntsman: Winter War sees Chris reprising his rugged role, and Charlize Theron returns as the evil queen. Theres no Snow White in this particular movie, which means no Kristen Stewart this go around. The prequel, which is set a number of years before the original film, also stars Emily Blunt, Sam Claflin and Jessica Chastain.

Organized by the Jewish Federation of Collier County, events take place Feb. 18-March 14 at various venues in Naples. The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida is a co-sponsor, along with other local businesses and community organizations, including Florida Weekly.Its ambitious, we know its very ambitious, says event co-chair and Florida Weekly book critic Phil Jason. The general community has grown, and the Jewish community has grown over the years, and this kind of event was missing, Mr. Jason says. This is a very well-educated town with lots of readers and a lot of book clubs. He co-chairs the event with Ted Epstein, whom he calls the main instigator. Mr. Epstein heard all the authors speak at a previous event and selected a number of them to be part of the Naples festival.Examples of graceA Pulitzer Prize-winning dance critic for The Washington Post for more than 20 years, Ms. Kaufman says Mr. Grant was the inspiration for her book. She refers to the actor often. As a dance critic, I have a very good idea of physical grace, because Ive been immersed in that world for so many years, she says, adding she admires Mr. Grant for the way he physically moved in his movies, but also for the way he moved through the world, the way he conducted himself and interacted with others always with graciousness. He pulled together the physical grace with the inner grace, or social grace, in the way he reacted to fellow actors, she says. For example, when an actor didnt do so well with a line, Mr. Grant would deliberately flub his so theyd have to reshoot the scene and his co-star could do another take. Grace is about ease and acceptance, Ms. Kaufman says. I think that essentially, its transferring an essence of well-being from one person to another. She gives various examples in her book. In addition to the Mr. Grant-Ms. Hepburn story, she writes of Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Smokey Robinson, Eleanor Roosevelt, Roger Federer, Nelson Mandela, Margot Fonteyn. She writes about Maxine Powell, who taught all the Motown musicians some of them young people from the projects or the streets how to conduct themselves with style and grace. The people I spoke with about (the late) Maxine Powell said that she built them up on the inside, too, gave them all kinds of confidence to believe in themselves, says Ms. Kaufman. Thats grace, too, to believe in yourself. Grace is a way of absorbing these incidents, these blows that come at you. If you have a kind of an ease and comfort in your own skin, hopefully you can allow these things to bounce off and move on. The Motown singers were taught how to speak and move and dress. They were taught how to behave onstage and during interviews, and even how to respond graciously if they were refused service at a Southern restaurant. When Martha Reeves (of Martha Reeves and the Vandellas) fell during a recent concert, she told Ms. Kaufman that it was her training with Ms. Powell from 50 years ago that not only helped her keep her poise but allowed her to know how to fall and not hurt herself, to pick herself up and continue on, unfazed. As for Jackie O, Ms. Kaufman says, She was very poised. She had a kind of smoothness about her. She was thoughtful, very careful about her behavior and coming across in a refined way. Ms. Kaufman writes of the physical grace of dancers and athletes, but also discusses grace in sculpture, painting, restaurants, science and theology. Grace is not a frivolous quality, she says. Grace helps you move through the world, and move through the most challenging situations. We all have struggles and conflicts in our lives whether theyre little things like dealing with the person on the subway taking up an extra seat with his bags, or standing up for yourself if you feel youre being talked down to. As the Motown artists tried to make their voices heard while the Civil Rights movement roiled around them, she adds, grace helped them to be seen in a positive light. It helped them handle what was tossed at them.A universal approachMs. Kaufman looks at grace with a universal scope. Thats how I view my dance beat, as universal, she says. The approach won her a Pulitzer Prize for criticism in 2010. Ive always had a big appetite for dance and movement in life off the stage, she says. Ive written about the grace of football players and (athletes in) the Tour de France, as well as the French qualities of aesthetics and approachability and simplicity. Ive written about movement and YouTube, and athletes happy dances after scoring goals and touchdowns. The wonderful thing about writing for The Washington Post is that Ive had such freedom to explore innumerable subjects. For example, she wrote an essay about the grace President Jimmy Carter embodied when he spoke about his cancer diagnosis and how it had spread to his brain. (It has since gone into remission.) He was so at ease, she says. He expressed gratitude for his life, his wife, his friends, the good life hes been living. It was an example of everyday grace and how we can bring grace to the most difficult situations. Grace is a spiritual thing, she says. I look at grace as a spiritual practice, because it involves my whole self, my whole relationship to the world, wanting to do right, to be the best person I can be. I dont consider myself an icon of grace at all. But Im inspired by watching others, by thinking about it and by trying to live it and connect with people deeply.

An old friend asked GRRSWF board member Mark Dahlberg if he knew anyone who could help save a golden retriever from South Koreas dog-meat industry. Four weeks later, the rescues first international arrival flew into Atlanta. The rest, as they say, is history. That first dog, Sky, was followed by 13 more Korean imports over the course of a year. Now known as the Korean 14, they will occupy a place of honor at GoldenFest 2016, coming up Sunday, Feb. 21 at the Shell Factory & Nature Park in North Fort Myers. Anyone stopping by the Korean tent will walk away amazed at how healthy, friendly and well adjusted these goldens are despite everything they had to overcome in their lives, Mr. Dahlberg said. They truly represent what is called the golden spirit. Mr. Dahlberg, who now holds the title of international rescue coordinator, is pushing to raise awareness about the plight of dogs in other cultures. In South Korea, homeless dogs only options are to be euthanized or sold to a meat farm, he said, adding dogs often have less than 72 hours in a shelter before one of those options happens. He has worked to forge bonds with rescuers in Korea who can get the dogs to safety until they can be flown to the United States. He is also striving to educate future generations about the role dogs play as family members in western societies. It will take a generation or two before the approach toward domestic animals changes in some countries, he said. The pictures that we forward to the volunteers overseas depicting the happiness these dogs are now experiencing are shared with school children. As a result, students are raising money to buy towels and blankets for dogs in the shelters. In addition to the Korean 14, GoldenFest will feature pet-related vendors, dock dog diving, a photo booth and a doggie kissing booth, a silent auction, a doggie garage sale and more. Well-mannered, leashed dogs are welcome. Because GRRSWF is a foster-based rescue with no paid employees, all donations go directly toward the care of its dogs. In seven years, the 501(c)(3) organization has rescued nearly 700 dogs. >> What: GoldenFest 2016 >> Where: Doggy Heaven at the Shell Factory & Nature Park, 2787 N.

Unfortunately, we moved several years ago and though we do see Constantine periodically, the distance put an end to these impromptu and highly treasured gifts. His magical kitchen produced some truly amazing and ambitious treats, but the pate was a masterpiece and somehow characterized our friendship with him: an acquired taste, but deep and rich. Pate presents are really few and far between now, so I was thrilled get a taste of another masterful interpretation at Caf Normandie. My sandwich, which included gherkins and a thick slice of pate on a croissant, came with a side salad. It was simple and satisfying, the way a rustic lunch or friendship should be. One More Thing: Want a Kir Royale? Caf Normandie has a nice selection of French wine cocktails. Lindsey Nesmith email@example.com

VINOThe war of the ratings continuesConfession: This is not the first time Ive written about the bewildering situation surrounding how wines are rated and scored by critics and wine magazine editors. However, it is, in fact, an ongoing issue and some information was recently published that casts a new, and very interesting, light on the topic. First of all, I need to let you know that I have several wine friends who wouldnt dream of buying a wine rated less than 90 points. Ive always thought that was insane, because Ive found great values and great sipping experiences in wines that dont cost a whole lot may not get that cherished 90-point distinction. Im happy to say that my attitude was amply supported by a recent issue of Wine Spectator magazine. But more on that below. If you go wine shopping, one thing is for certain: youll be confronted by some kind of rating information. Every wine retailer puts critics wine ratings on the shelf talker, price tag, point of sale sign, somewhere. Wines that receive high ratings will carry that information right on the bottle. The problem is, what do the ratings actually mean, and should your purchase decisions be determined by the fact that some magazine or taster gave this wine 88 points, or 93 points? I say no. Many years ago, when critics rated wines, they used a 20-point scale. The rationale was that there was more discernible difference between a wine rated 18 and one rated 19. Today, the 100point scale is universal, and I dare anybody to taste the difference between an 88-point wine and one rated 89. Even more puzzling (and disturbing) is the situation among the various wine consumer magazines, because theres no consistency in the way they assign points. As consumers we just have to figure it all out ourselves. Case in point: I usually trust the ratings given by Wine Spectator, and by certain independent critics, but I dont trust Wine Enthusiast magazine, because they consistently rate wines two to five points higher than everybody else. I tell my wine classes that Wine Enthusiast never met a wine they werent enthusiastic about. Inflated ratings dont do us any good. So. Is a 92-point wine that much better than an 86-point wine? Is there that much difference in quality, or in the enjoyment youll experience when you drink them? In a recent issue, the editors of Wine Spectator were asked to list their personal favorite wines. Surprise. These journalist/critics, all of whom are able to sample just about any wine in the world, listed tons of favorite wines that rated well below 90 points, and well below $20 a bottle. Now, those are the wines you want to look for. Senior editor Bruce Sanderson selected, among others, an 88-point Bouchard Pre & Fils Bourgogne Rserve 2013 that costs just $22. Any time you can get a decent Burgundy for around that price, you buy it. James Molesworth, another editor, listed an 88-point Chteau Marsau Bordeaux that costs $23. So even though these critics can drink anything they want, they also can spot the values and they dont have to be 90-pointers. Observation: There is, admittedly, a distant relationship between how good a wine is and how much it costs. Many factors go into the pricing of a wine. How many cases do they make? How do they market the wine? Is it sold at retail, or only to those on the winerys club list? We buy one very limited-production wine because were on the list and we waited years for our names to come up. However, as soon as we receive it, its worth about three times what we paid. So theres some investment value here, as well. The moral of the story is, drink what you like. Dont be afraid to buy an 88-point wine, because it could be great. After all, professional wine journalists like and recommend them. Most of this months favorites are available locally, but if not, you can always search for them on line and have them delivered. Theyre all in the 88-89 point range, and priced between $12 and $16.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF FEBRUARY 18-24, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C39 CUISINE NEWSPetars perfects a small menu with big flavorsThe first time I attempted to make reservations at Petars Restaurant in Bonita Springs, I had waited until the weekday I planned to visit. I was out of luck. The place was booked solid surprising for a restaurant that had only been open a couple of months. But I didnt know then what I know now. Petars is a small restaurant, seating only 32 indoors and a handful outside. More importantly, Petars serves exquisite food made with the freshest ingredients and plated with precision and flair. A former Ritz-Carlton chef, Petar Al Kurdi opened his restaurant last November in the Center of Bonita Springs, one of those ubiquitous, sprawling plazas anchored by a grocery store. This one, near the northwest corner of Bonita Beach Road and U.S. 41, has undergone an expansion and facelift that have given it new life and new tenants. Petars is located in one long, narrow unit that begs for expansion. The tables are lined up so tightly it reminds you of restaurants in New York City, where a square foot of commercial real estate is so precious and pricey that restaurant patrons must mind their elbows or risk knocking over a wine glass at the next table. The waiters are doing the best they can, but there are awkward moments when one false step backward would land them in your lap. The well-heeled diners of Bonita Springs who are filling up the tables at Petars dont seem to mind that or the generic atmosphere. Theres not a lot of overhead on display in the dcor just some nice wall sconces and pendant laps with exposed ductwork overhead. The big open kitchen provides some entertainment, with a couple of choice seats at the bar putting us close enough to chat with the four men cooking on the night we visited. We could see them examining each plate before it was handed over the bar. We sipped glasses of Rimapere Sauvignon Blanc ($12) and Rainstorm Pinot Noir ($11) and munched on bread and butter while waiting for the first course to arrive. The sauv blanc from New Zealand had a refreshing minerality and subtler acidity than many Marlborough labels. There are just five starters offered, including two salads and a bisque. We opted instead for a crab cake ($14) and butternut squash risotto ($9). The former was so free of filler ingredients that it was difficult to tell what was holding the moist jumbo lump crabmeat together. The patty was nicely bronzed and placed atop a similarly sized bed of mango-papaya salsa with just a hint of heat from red onion. Drizzles of bright green and orange oils encircled the crab cake; that and the colorful fruit made for a boldly artistic plate. Whether all that is enough to justify paying $14 for one crab cake is debatable, but the combination of fresh crab and ripe fruit is one you will savor. Risotto can be difficult to pull off in a restaurant. How to achieve the perfect creaminess without losing all of the rice kernels texture? How to maintain that state through the course of dinner service? How to avoid gummy or soupy or chewy rice? The chefs at Petars somehow know all the answers, producing tender rice cloaked in silky liquid thats sweetened and colored golden by pureed squash. It was clearly worthy of being served on its own, rather than as a sidekick to a protein. I wasnt quite finished eating the risotto when the waiter tried to take away the bowl. It might have just been one inexperienced waiter, but patrons shouldnt be made to feel like the restaurant is trying to expedite table turnover. The half-dozen entrees on the regular menu include freshly made pasta, so thats usually a safe choice. The fact that Petars tops its linguine with lobster ($33) made this a real no-brainer. Laced with creamy but not overly rich lobster sauce, the noodles had a pleasant spring to them the kind of tender bite you dont get with dried pasta. A whole claw and split tail provided ample opportunity to enjoy the lobster. My only regret was that there was no bread left to mop up that delectable sauce. If youre more into turf than surf, you cant go wrong with the Wagyu New York strip ($33), which was massive and truly beefy tasting. Crossed-hatched with attractive grill marks, our juicy steak was medium-rare, as ordered, and accompanied by a deeply flavorful demi-glace. On the side were delicious pureed parsnips a nice alternative to potatoes and tender green beans. Each dish throughout the meal was garnished with snippets of green herbs such as dill and parsley, which added a final flourish of freshness to the plates. For dessert, its either crme brulee or crepes ($6 each). The former had a lush, souffl-like texture that few crme brulees achieve and was definitely worth the indulgence. The crepes can be filled with bananas and chocolate or berries and crme anglaise. Theyre a little thicker than most crepes, but at Petars they like to cook the filling in the pancake so it needs to be a little sturdier.

Ronto selects designers for models at Seaglass at Bonita BayThe Ronto Group has selected three design firms to create the interiors of the model residences to be presented at Seaglass at Bonita Bay, a 26-floor, 120-unit high-rise tower to be built by Ronto within Bonita Bay. The designs will be created by Robb & Stucky International, Cinnabar Design, and Renee Gaddis Interiors. The models will include the finishes now on display at the Seaglass Design Studio at the Seaglass Sales Center at 26951 Country Club Drive within Bonita Bay. Situated nearly 250 feet from its closest neighboring building, Seaglass will feature fully-completed, ready for occupancy residences with premium finishes, including flooring, paint, and trim. Each residence will come with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages will be available. Three tower residence great room floor plans at Seaglass range from 2,889 to 3,421 square feet and are priced from just over $1 million. The penthouse residences at Seaglass are priced from $2.5 million and offer approximately 4,600 square feet. Robb & Stucky Internationals Susan J. Vleda and Rachelle Porco will create the interior for the 804 tower residence at Seaglass. The spacious 3,088 square feet floor plan includes three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a den, an open great room, dining area, and island kitchen, terrace space totaling 485 square feet, and a private elevator foyer. Vleda and Porcos design will exude sophistication while providing an exceptional level of livability. Set against a background wall tone of soft sandy bisque that runs throughout the home, their color palette will include light creams and whites. Muted accents of frosted glass will be layered with matte gold and silver metallics. Furnishings will be clean lined with fabrics that include leather against cotton and linen. Upon exiting the elevator into the private lobby, the sandy tones, natural woods, and lustrous surfaces will immediately evoke a sense of being beachside. A high-backed shelter sofa upholstered in a bisque fabric will be set against faux-finished walls that display clear glass beads reminiscent of bubbles rising from the water. In the wide foyer, a long side wall will accommodate a p utty colored console table and a stylish wall-mounted mirror. An area rug will add a layer of texture. The foyer opens to the expansive great room, dining room, and kitchen with breathtaking views through sliding glass doors onto a spacious terrace. In the living area, a dramatic 10-foot wide fireplace will be installed within a built-out section of wall adorned with glistening wallpaper. On either side of the fireplace, thick glass shelving with the look of seaglass will be lighted from above to create bright display space that can also be muted for softer mood lighting. Two sofas perpendicular to the fireplace will be upholstered in bisque linen. Accent pillows will provide textured contrast while maintaining toneon-tone elegance. Two easy chairs will face the fireplace, while in the center of the grouping a 60 x 60-inch cocktail table will make a statement with its heavy glass top evoking an affinity with seaglass and the sea shore. To highlight the adjacent dining area, Vleda and Porco have designed a striking rectangular ceiling structure with recessed lighting and tiered layers. An eye-catching chandelier will illuminate a rectangular dining table with seating for eight. A buffet console will stand against a wall with a matte metallic finish. The contemporary L-shaped kitchen will feature a counter-height island. Counter stools in a matte gold finish will be upholstered in a shimmery bisque leather while distinctive pendant lighting will showcase interesting glass designs. Light-toned finishes will be selected for the perimeter and island cabinetry with complementary light counter surfaces. Many of the cabinets will feature frosted glass fronts. The bisque color scheme will continue on the terrace. Vleda and Porco have selected a wicker furniture in neutral tones offering both style and comfort. The space will allow for designated dining and lounging areas, with room for a summer kitchen. The glistening water view will feel like a natural extension of the beauty inside. A hallway leads to the den and two guest suites that open to another wide terrace at the front of the building. The multi-purpose den will offer a relaxed retreat space that can function as an office, a separate lounging area, or as an additional bedroom. The plan calls for light-toned built-in cabinetry across an entire wall with interconnected lighted shelving and a spacious desk. An armchair and ottoman will be grouped with a sleeper sofa. In the master suite, the neutral wall tones will deepen slightly by way of contrast. Vleda and Porco will continue the seaglass motif in this serene private retreat by artfully incorporating Lucite into the design. A contemporary four poster bed will command attention with a unique combination of Lucite and a matte gold metallic finish. The effect will be solid and stylish and enhanced by a fabulous arrangement of linens. On either side of the bed, the nightstands will showcase a blend of white and mirrored finishes while the tall dresser will be entirely mirrored to reflect the natural light from the large window and sliding glass doors that lead onto the terrace. A hallway past his and her closets leads to the master bathroom where the design will include sea sponges, shells, and a background of stunning wall paper. Visit the Seaglass Design Studio and Sales Center from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and Sundays from noon to 5:00 p.m. Visit Seaglass online at www.seaglassatbonitabay.com.

Grand Opening this weekend for Sienna Reserves models. Community already two-thirds soldSienna Reserve, the intimate enclave of 45 single-family homes being developed by Zuckerman Homes on Livingston Road, between Vanderbilt Beach Road and Immokalee Road, is having its models grand opening this weekend. The event begins Friday at 10 am with hours throughout the week being Monday through Saturday, 10 am to 5:30 pm, and Sunday, 11 am to 5:30 pm. Andy Zuckerman, President of Zuckerman Homes, said the communitys three beautiful models, two of which are fully furnished by the award-winning interior design firm of Robb & Stucky, have really captured the imagination of those visitors who have already toured them. From the moment we completed our first furnished model in early January to the recent unveiling of the two remaining models, the public response has just been extraordinary, said Zuckerman. Every visitor loves the open, well-designed floor plans whether they are looking for a singlestory or two-story home. The fact that each outdoor living area, which includes a pool, overlooks our pristine nature preserve has been another reason for visitors to pause and reflect about the amazing Florida lifestyle offered at Sienna Reserve. The three models, the Hibiscus and the Magnolia Flex, which are furnished, and the Rosewood, which is unfurnished, perfectly represent the quality and attention to detail found in every home built by Zuckerman Homes. The Hibiscus is a single-story, threebedroom plus study/three-bath home with 2,566 square feet under air and 3,378 total square feet. The Magnolia Flex is a two-story, four-bedroom plus game room and media room/three full-bath/two halfbath home. It has 4,004 square feet under air and 4,855 total square feet. The two-story Rosewood is an incredible five-bedroom plus study and clubroom/five-and-a-half-bath home with 4,971 square feet under air and 5,997 total square feet. A total of eight floor plans are available at Sienna Reserve. Prices start in the mid-$600s. For a limited opportunity, Sienna Reserve purchasers are eligible to receive complimentary temporary privileges to all Tiburon Golf Club amenities, and Sienna Reserve homeowners are eligible to become members of the exclusive Tiburon Golf Club, which is located only minutes away. We might be calling this event our model grand opening, but in reality its the communitys grand opening as well, stated Zuckerman. Our grand entrance, which was recently completed, is also turning heads. Its definitely an attention grabber as visitors turn off Livingston Road and into the community. Sienna Reserves Grand Entrance includes a palmand flower-lined brickpaver drive, an impressive gatehouse and a majestic stone and marble privacy entry wall with cascading water feature and glistening fountains. Several brick-paver roundabouts with water feature centerpieces are also positioned throughout Sienna Reserve. Our entrance as well as the architectural features found along our winding streets were designed to set the relaxing tone for the entire community, added Zuckerman. Sienna Reserves beautiful gated entrance, stunning models and lush, tropical landscaping have been attracting buyers. As of mid-February, almost two-thirds of the communitys 45 homes have been sold. Buyers are thrilled to learn only 14 of the communitys 30 acres are being developed. The remaining 16 acres comprise a freshwater lake and untouched nature preserve. The fact that no two homes back up to each other, and have either a lake or preserve view, is another reason people love Sienna Reserve. According to Zuckerman, another major selling point is Sienna Reserves size. In many cases bigger is not always better. Our research indicates buyers are looking for a more intimate community to call home. A place close to the city, yet in harmony with nature. A place where neighbor knows neighbor. With only 45 homes, thats exactly what we deliver. Zuckerman Homes also welcomes future residents to customize their home something usually only offered in communities priced much higher. Everyones lifestyle is different. They have different needs, said Zuckerman. As a family-run building company no one knows that better than we do. Well do everything we can to customize a home to our buyers specifications. Sienna Reserves location is another reason the community is approaching two-thirds sold. It is close to downtown Naples and its world-renowned shopping districts of Fifth Avenue South and Third Street South, said Zuckerman. Its also within minutes of Mercato, one of the most popular upscale shopping, dining and entertainment areas in town. In addition, Sienna Reserve is close to the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico, the Naples Pier, fine restaurants, Germain Arena, the site for many sporting and entertainment events, and the Southwest Florida International Airport. Its also an enjoyable stroll to North Collier Regional Park, one of the countys premier parks. It features walking trails and boardwalks, fishing lakes, a fitness center complex, a world-class childrens museum and soccer and softball fields.

Game on! Pickleball among popular amenities at Pelican PreservePelican Preserve residents Dave Atkinson and Darlene Nelson were intrigued by the strange game taking place on three courts at the Fort Myers communitys Town Center. The couple noticed the similarities between tennis, ping pong and badminton, and they were interested in learning more about the perforated ball that seemed to provide more hang time and a better opportunity at a return. That was back in 2012, when WCI Communities had just introduced three pickleball courts to its 1,100-acre 55 and better active lifestyle community. Neither Darlene nor I were familiar with pickleball, Atkinson recalled. But we tried it, and we have been avid players since. The couple plays four times a week for about two hours each session. They also are members of Pelican Preserves official pickleball committee. Atkinson maintains a list of almost 200 community pickleballers, including more than 60 active residents who play regularly. Pickleball has really taken off, he said. Its fun, and its a great workout. Pickleball is more social and friendly than other competitive sports. Weve met a lot of other pickleballers. Atkinson and Nelson help promote the game and make new acquaintances by organizing sessions for first-timers, coordinating a weekday schedule of round robins and open play based on skill level, and scheduling in-house league play. People often come by and watch and ask about the game, he said. We explain the rules and invite them to play. Its very easy to learn. Anyone with racket sport experience will pick it up quickly. Most pickleball games feature doubles teams and last about 10 to 15 minutes. Pickleball player ratings from 2.5 to 5.0 group players by ability levels. The better you are, the longer the volleys and the games last, said Atkinson, whos attained a 4.0 rating. Nelson is 3.5. Pickleball is among the many recreational and social activities offered in and around Pelican Preserves Plaza del Sol, the recently expanded 70,000-squarefoot Town Center featuring every imaginable activity from fitness and indoor swimming to arts and crafts studios, to casually elegant dining at the newly updated Destinations restaurant. At Pelican Preserves Soleil Health & Fitness Center, the expansion included tripling group exercise space and adding Cybexs new line of Prestige Strength equipment. The new 65,000-gallon outdoor lap pool is complemented by Flip Flops, the communitys casual resort-style alfresco dining area that features daily specials and unique menu items. Pelican Preserve golfers enjoy 27 holes of Chip Powell-designed championship golf, plus the 24,500-square-foot Golf Club, offering members fine and casual dining, a full calendar of events, and a health club with wellness, fitness and spa treatment rooms. Homebuyers interested in all Pelican Preserve has to offer can view five model homes from the single-family Villa, Grand Villa and Classic home collections open for viewing in the communitys model home park, as well as Chateau and Carriage home models. Featuring interior design by awardwinning Winter-Park-based Kay Green Design in the Key Largo II, San Remo and Donatello homes and CJ Dcor of Estero in the Islamorada and Nautilus homes, the models have two and three bedrooms, one and two stories, and flex rooms or dens within 1,903 to 3,010 square feet of living space.

The first tower is completely sold out. The second tower will set a new standard for luxury waterfront living and complete the finest boutique marina-front condominium in the Naples market. Following success with preconstruction sales, we are excited to have broken ground on the second tower, said Chris Hanlon, a Principal with PACT Real Estate Group, which is developing AQUA II in partnership with Ironshore Capital Partners, LLC. Luxury homebuyers can experience all that AQUA has to offer by visiting our two new models, which are open daily. The 32 residences in the new 11-story tower range from 3,940 to 6,599 sq. ft. with three and four bedrooms, 3.5 to 4.5 baths, with living and family rooms/ den. Each will have generous sunrise and sunset terraces, gourmet kitchens, spacious master bedroom suites, lavish master bathrooms with generous closet space and more. AQUA residents enjoy access to a stunning array of amenities. The communitys private yacht harbor, with direct access to the Gulf, consists of 29 slips for purchase and accommodates boats up to 55 feet. A rooftop sky lounge and terrace offer magnificent vistas of the Gulf of Mexico, beaches, Wiggins Bay and mangrove-lined estuaries. The grand social room is designed to accommodate events from the casual to the most elegant. AQUAs resort-style pool and spa is complemented by a pavilion bar, gas grills and fire pit overlooking the yacht harbor. In addition, AQUA features a fitness center and private movie theater. The launch of the new tower means plans for a host of new amenities. These include: a social room complete with large screen television and sound system, comfortable seating area with a fireplace, bar and card tables; three spacious guest suites, which can reserved for guests. Additional guest cottages and cabanas are available for purchase by residents; a game room with a billiards, interactive virtual golf and other video games; outdoor putting/chipping green, dog run; and an outdoor screened social pavilion overlooking the marina.
