COMMENTARY Socialism callingEditors note: This column first appeared in November 2008.Socialism is the new fad topic of chickenlittle political conversation. And now that we have a black guy about to stretch his long scrawny frame out on the big mattress in the White House master bedroom, all kinds of people are pointing it out. Of course, the short scrawny white guy who still inhabits the White House master bedroom has practiced more socialism of a kind (welfare for the rich) than anybody since FDR, but people dont mention it by name. I havent heard so much talk about socialism since a professor at the University of Kansas tried to introduce it to my poli-sci class in 1971. Socialism, he intoned, is collective or governmental administration of the means of production and distribution of goods. Or something like that. We showed that old fool the country wasnt ready for it; we just sat there and drooled, glassy-eyed and oblivious, trying to remember the previous night. Usually we couldnt. But we always remembered where the student cafeteria was, a socialist place if I ever saw one. There, the Kansas government ladled out huge quantities of carbohydrates three times a day to any would be hippy who happened past with a meal card. A meal card, by the way, is a socialist invention. OK, there was one other time socialism reared its ugly head in my young life: when my mother read me Chicken Little. Everybody thought the chicken said, The Sky is Falling, The Sky is Falling. And I admit, it sounded like that. But even at age 6, and even though I was not a Boy Scout not ever, by God I was alert to the threat to our American Way Of Life (AWOL). I recognized immediately that what the chicken really said was this: Socialism Calling, Socialism Calling, rather than The Sky Is Falling. That was serious business. Even then, with Eisenhower in the White House and Elvis in Memphis and McDonalds selling hamburgers for 15 cents, I knew that our society was in deep trouble. I knew, even while I was practicing duckand-cover in Miss Brickles first grade class and wondering how my family could get to the ranch so I could get my single-shot .22 to shoot Russkies if the sky flashed bright and a mushroom cloud appeared I knew that the real threat was not the Russkies. No sir. I knew the real threat to the American Way of Life (now AWOL) would be a socialist in the White House 50 years later, and the country done gone to the socialist dogs. So this is not new, this socialism thing, even though some of our pundits are bringing up the notion with all the same hideous portent as the town fathers of Salem brought up witchcraft, back in 1692. These contemporary harbingers of socialist evil would just love to get their hands on some socialists and some matches, I dont doubt. Why, one old sage warned of the following nightmare just the other day in the daily newspaper: The loss of our collective selfesteem in a welfare state, disappearance of both the work and risk-taking ethics that made our nation prosperous and the very real possibility that the government will take over banking, big business and heavenknows-what. Maybe FDRs socialist soup lines killed our collective self-esteem and risk-taking ethics or was that starvation? And now look at us, no self esteem at all. Take Social Security, which is as pure a model of welfare socialism as you can get. Ill bet neither the old newspaper sage nor his parents ever turned down one red cent of that gravy train. Most people who turn 65 dont mind becoming socialists. How about public schools and libraries? Sorry, theyre socialist. Police and firefighters? No sir, government-run. The United States Navy, the United States Marine Corps and those other service organizations? Naw. Socialist outfits if I ever saw them, governmentowned and operated. The old sage went on to say that some of his best friends are black, and the light in their eye is a happy light these days, so he is happy, too. Apparently it didnt occur to him that happy light in someones eye is usually the result of stoner values. Socialist stoner values. We learned that at a socialist institution of higher education before the 1970s had even so much as cleared its throat. So you know, Im not the only one who has noticed. Socialism is everywhere. Welfare itself food stamps, rent help, bank bailouts, tax breaks for huge corporations is socialism, we all know that. Whenever the government tries to help somebody, even if one thin dime is involved, thats socialism. Medicare and Medicaid are socialism. Roads and bridges are socialism. National parks are socialism, along with state parks and city parks. Public swimming pools are socialism. Even baseball has gone to the socialist dogs. Local governments are now willing to spend vast quantities of taxpayer money to build those profiteering boys of summer their own springtime fields of dreams. Socialism, all. The government this, the government that, the government heavenknows-what, as that old socialism-calling sage put it. Public radio? Socialist, although not as much as it used to be, since its support is down from 81 percent government money a couple of decades ago to about 14 percent, according to an NPR website. Theyre begging for the rest this week on WGCU 90.1FM and WMKO-FM 91.7 Marco, as you may have noticed. Want to fight socialism? Give them some of your money, quick, before the government does. And let me raise just two final questions in the midst of all this handwringing and nattering on about socialism and the government. Isnt the government you and me? Heres the short answer: Yes. I reckon our sense of self-esteem and willingness to take risks is going to be OK, dont you? t p b r m roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

Flagler was the mastermind behind the monopoly that became Standard Oil. With a new business opportunity before him, he spent the balance of his life ensuring its success, building resort hotels and the railway infrastructure needed to attract the winter-weary to the sundrenched coast. In 1893, he bought a little piece of real estate on a barrier island called Palm Beach, and the rest is wealthincarnate history. After World War II, a buoyant economy gave rise to the middle class. Families of more modest means had the financial resources and the aspirations to enjoy a Florida vacation, too. Gary Mormino writes in his book, Land of Sunshine, Land of Dreams, Florida vacations were, for ordinary Americans, a democratic ideal and republican virtue. Their experience of tourism was, however, wholly different from the luxury brand Flagler created. Alligators, cypress trees, tropical foliage, fragrant orange groves, sparkling rivers and bubbling springs were the ingredients used to market Florida with a circus flair. Beautiful beaches, live mermaids, glass-bottom boats, gator farms, tropical gardens, barefoot skiing, rattlesnake milking, shuffleboard, sun bathing, fabulous fishing and more it was all there, colorful, fascinating, entertaining and not like anything seen in Peoria. Natural Florida was the star attraction. From the 1950s, until the early s, Mormino says the state attracted under 5 million visitors annually; then came the era of A.D. (After Disney) and mega theme parks. Tourism exploded and the sector transformed itself into a fullfledged industry, attracting 50 million visitors annually in the decade that followed. The growth detonated the sleepy burg of Orlando. The tourism industry never looked back. Most of the folksy and low-tech tourist attractions from the era of B.D. (Before Disney) did not survive. The over-stimulated mega attractions eclipsed their simpler charm and the wholesale destruction of Floridas natural places was underway. A new chapter opened in the wake of the publics concern for the privately owned parks sliding into permanent demise and the annihilation of the states natural environment. Local and state government stepped in to purchase and protect lands and water resources. The state got serious about conserving and protecting the states natural resources, starting in 1990 with Preservation 2000; and its 2001 successor, Florida Forever. Because of these programs, parks, trails, forests and wildlife management areas were among the millions of acres added to and held in the public trust. The state funded Preservation 2000 fully for 10 years; and Florida Forever received $300 million annually for its first nine years. Florida Forever was envisioned as the states premier conservation and recreation lands acquisition program, a blueprint for conserving natural resources and protecting the states natural and cultural heritage. The program authorized the state to purchase, conserve and protect in perpetuity Floridas most environmentally sensitive lands and water resources. Then came a double whammy: The Great Recession hit and the funding plummeted to zero; and then a conservativeminded legislature and governor continued to starve it of resources even as the states economy improved. The annual appropriations to the program suffered the fate of many of Floridas springs; it totally dried up. In 2014, Floridians talked back; 75 percent of voters approved Amendment 1, which will generate more than $10 billion over the next 20 years for land acquisition and water conservation. The money comes from an existing source of revenue generated by the documentary stamp tax. The amendment requires the state to dramatically increase its spending for these purposes; but the governor and his fellow conservatives in the legislature are acting like imperious monarchs, ignoring the voters mandate to fulfill the spirit and letter of the law. Last year, the Legislature approved only $17.4 million for Florida Forever. The amount was far short of the $100 million advocated by environmentalists. The Legislature took Amendment 1 revenue and ran, spending it on extraneous expenses hardly germane to the amendments core purposes. The misappropriation produced savings in general revenue to spend on a porkers wish list. Two lawsuits are challenging their pecuniary behavior. They are at it again, proposing only $22.3 million for Florida Forever, far short of serious dollars, and diverting Amendment 1 revenue to pay for a laundry list of unrelated overhead and administrative expenses. The pious defense of the budget bait and switch is a thin deceit for what is really going on robbery of Amendment 1 funds by legislative misappropriation. The voters supporting Amendment 1 should be outraged. These legislative two-timers are cheating on their constituents, conducting a full-blown love affair on the side with special interests eager to emasculate the amendments core purposes. Call this duplicity out. Tell these rascals you will drink muddy water and sleep in a hollow log before you will let them make fools out of the voters of this state.

OPINIONWelcome to EuropeDonald Trump will never be mistaken for a cosmopolitan, but he will bring a distinctively European flavor to the 2016 presidential election, should he win the Republican nomination. As in continental Europe, the two parties in a Donald Trump-Hillary Clinton race would accept the basic parameters of the welfare state, and the debate about the size of government so central to American politics for decades would fade to the background. No matter how appalled the left may be by Trump, his prospective takeover of the GOP would be a watershed for progressives. For 80 long years, they have demagogued and shamed the GOP in a forlorn attempt to get it to give up on fundamentally reforming the welfare state. How much time and energy have been devoted to depicting Republicans as shoving elderly people off cliffs and as hell-bent on destroying Social Security. And here comes Donald Trump to finally cry uncle. The mogul is adamantly and apparently sincerely opposed to entitlement reform. He thus is perfectly content to accept the status quo on half the federal budget. Never mind that the programs are built on badly flawed New Deal and Great Society assumptions and, if unreformed and unconstrained, will make it impossible to deal with the debt over the long term. These are details beneath Trumps notice. What has made American politics so distinctive for so long is the presence of a mass party committed to limited government, thanks to the conservative movement. In most European countries, there is nothing like such movement, and the limited-government tendency is relegated to think tanks and small political parties, where it usually has no real influence. Trump as the leader of the Republican Party would, in effect, reject limitedgovernment conservatism and instantly make the GOP at the presidential level more like an accommodationist centerright European party in which a Ted Cruz would have no home. Of course, mainstream European political parties tend not to be nationalist or anti-immigration. Here, Trump bears a closer resemblance to Europes outsider parties on the right. He is less the candidate of American exceptionalism which has a keen appreciation of our national creed as enunciated in the Declaration and the limits on government power set down by the Constitution than a robust nationalism of a blood-andsoil variety found nearly everywhere else in the word. Trumps understanding of the Constitution the most valuable American contribution to the art of self-government runs somewhere between attenuated to nonexistent. He has lately been making noises about loosening libel laws so that he can more easily sue publications for printing things he doesnt like. On Fox News Sunday, he complained that in England, I can tell you its very much different and very much easier. Yes, it is because England doesnt have a First Amendment. The United States happens to have a bulwark of free speech written into its foundational law, although Donald Trump apparently cant fathom why. You can say this about a Donald TrumpHillary Clinton race: It will be more nasty, personality-driven and entertaining than anything weve seen in decades. It will also, in important respects, be less American. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. e r a b b S rich LOWRYSpecial to Florida Weekly T o l a D l leslieLILLYllilly@floridaweekly.com

Having Cataract Surgery was a breeze. My vision is clear again. I dont have to ask my buddies to watch my tee shots.Rich Lamb, Local Golf Pro, Cataract Patient ROOTED IN NAPLESHow to make the most of the kids days off schoolI recently checked our kids school calendars separately, because they have schedules that are totally different in every way and realized that throughout the entire five-week month of March, the two of them are simultaneously in class only 8 days. To be clear, there are a total of 23 weekdays: Between the two schools, we have separate spring breaks, in-service days, half-days and one or two what-thehell-why-be-here days sprinkled in. One school is much guiltier than the other, but Im not here to call anyone out. Im just wondering out loud why every break is preceded by a long weekend. When the stars are so misaligned, there is a very real possibility that boredom will kill one or both kids or that we might do it for them once they turn on each other. And as any school administrator will say when theyre not creating convenient holes in the calendar, class time is important for knowledge retention. Theyre right: Ive seen my kids brain cells leak out their ears before Independence Day, and its not pretty. Even a long weekend leaves a vacant look in their eyes, making me the target of conversations that degenerate into a plot summary of the latest Ricky, Nicky, Dicky & Dawn episode. Watching the show is bad enough, but reliving it through the monotone narration of a catatonic kindergartner is sheer intellectual torture and you feel bad for the kid, too. To prepare for a month of erratic and unstructured time off, Ive come up with a list of suggestions to keep kids purposefully engaged, or at least fruitlessly occupied. Tie them to a tree in the backyard when you leave for work. Be sure to leave fresh water and a food bowl. Book the community center at Fleischmann Park for peewee Thunderdome. The winner in each age group gets a huge trophy sculpted out of Fruit by the Foot; losers are subjected to a raw vegan buffet prepared by Collier County Schools Nutrition Services. Chauffeur duties increased? Enforce a mandatory viewing of Blood on the Asphalt and requests for rides will magically disappear. Perhaps your teenagers are using their free time a little too freely, ifyouknowwhatImean? A mandatory viewing of the sex-ed classic Miracle of Life will shrivel up those urges right quick. Bonus points if you can find some vintage gonorrhea footage and a football coach to put it into context. Maybe your little hellions took their neighborhood antics up a notch. Mandatory viewing of Scared Straight should work pretty well for now. Mandatory viewing of whatever your parents watched in their Carter-era health class. Only wimps and millenials are well adjusted; your kids are neither. Theres no time like the present to learn budgeting basics. Be sure to instill a healthy fear of adulthood and gratitude that youre still shielding them from it. Yard work. Housework. Busy work. Work work. Anything, just dont let them get you down. Even though it might feel like it is going to at this point, March wont last forever. Once its over, we can move on to the real challenge: summer vacation, which is perfect for learning the basics of home maintenance and repair.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 10-16, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYrub the amber-colored material on their bows before rehearsing Lightly Row. Not exactly the kind of conversation professional cellists Yo-Yo Ma or Matt Haimovitz might hold, but then again, for Julian and Willow and their fellow musicians, its all new: the feel, the sounds, the entire experience of playing a musical instrument. And yes, even what things smell like. Why are they rubbing rosin on their bows? So my bow can sound better, says 7-year-old Isaiah Bernadel, a second grader. It makes the (horse) hair on the bow more sticky so it can grab the strings, 7-year-old Kymon Jenkins explains to a visitor. The charismatic second grader is learning to play the bass; even without its end pin extended, the instrument towers over him. If theres no traction, Melissa Barlow, MusicWorks! program director and Gulf Coast Symphony community engagement director explains, the bow would just glide over the strings and thered be no sound. Five months ago, most of these kids had never even touched a musical instrument. To many of them, anything that had strings was a guitar; they couldnt differentiate a violin from a viola or a bass from a cello. Now, theyre learning how to play them. Not only that, but so far theyve performed twice at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall, opening for the Gulf Coast Symphony. The first time was Jan. 24, with a soldout crowd in attendance. They did the Twinkle variation arranged by Suzuki, and received a standing ovation at the end, Ms. Barlow says with pride. More than 1,800 people (watching them), and they didnt even flinch. For that age, they have nerves of steel. It doesnt sink in how big of an accomplishment that is. It can be overwhelming, to look up and see a wall of audience, the lights. For many of them, it was the first time theyd ever been to the hall. Theres a premiere cultural center 10 minutes down the road, and they never had the opportunity or the means to attend, Ms. Barlow says. Among those in the audience was Kathryn Kelly, president, CEO and founder of the Heights Foundation. I was in tears watching them, she says. It was wonderful. What a huge opportunity for them. The students performed again with the symphony at the Mann Hall on March 6, although only 12 of the 32 youngsters were able to be there, the others downed by the flu. As they walked off the stage after a pre-concert rehearsal, Dale Caba, head of props at the venue, told them: Youre the next Joshua Bells. (Mr. Caba was referring to the Grammy Award-winning violinist Joshua Bell who, at age 14, performed solo with the Philadelphia Orchestra.)Plucking and stompingThe children run through a musical exercise with violin teaching artist Hank Pellegrino, the cellos, bass, violas and violins all playing together. D-A-D! STOMP! D-A-D! STOMP! D-DA-A-D-A-D! STOMP! They call out each note exuberantly while plucking the corresponding strings on their instrument, shouting Stomp! especially loud at the same time stamping the floor with sneakered or sandaled foot for emphasis. Viola teaching artist Tracey Kinnunen roams around the stage, assisting the young musicians as needed. The children are obviously enjoying themselves. On Mondays and Fridays, they practice together as an orchestra for 45 minutes, then break up into groups according to their instruments for 40 minutes, to work on techniques such as using their left hand or bowing. On the other weekdays, they take methods classes and music fundamentals classes and have small group lessons. One day they made a rain stick. One time, a violinist from Tanglewood talked to them about the Argentinian tango and played for them. How it worksThe children are participating in a program called MusicWorks!, a new collaboration between the Gulf Coast Symphony and the Heights Foundation, both in Fort Myers. It began in August 2015. Rehearsals take place in the Heights Center in Harlem Heights, a community that has twice the poverty rate of the rest of Lee County. Every student in kindergarten through second grade at nearby Heights Elementary School who participates in the centers after-school program receives free music instruction and automatically becomes a member of the MusicWorks! orchestra. They arrive at the center at 3 p.m., eat a snack and spend an hour doing homework and reading before the 90-minute music lesson. Theyll receive more music instruction in seven days (at the center) than they will in their entire year (at school), says Andrew Kurtz, musical and executive director of the Gulf Coast Symphony. With budget cuts that disproportionately affect arts education, children are receiving little or no instruction in the arts. But MusicWorks! isnt just a program to teach young kids how to play an instrument, Maestro Kurtz says. Thats the short-term benefit. In the long run, the program is opening up a world of creativity and musical expression. The reason its happening in this particular community, he adds, is that the Heights Center children are one of Lee Countys most at-risk populations. We believe this program will help improve the future of the children and the neighborhood. Its about long-term success in life and academia. The skills theyre learning listening skills, working-together skills, the critical thinking skills, the evaluation skills, the stopand-think skills will enable them to be more successful people. Thats why were doing this. Its real, societal change to this community, a deep investment. These children are the future leaders of their community, he points out. When Maestro Kurtz approached the Heights Foundation about partnering with Gulf Coast Symphony for MusicWorks!, Ms. Kelly and the board of directors readily agreed. He then pitched his program idea to the Southwest Florida Community Foundation. They liked the idea, too, and provided $58,000 in seed funding for the first year, approximately twothirds of what the program costs. The symphony raised money from other MUSICFrom page 1 VANDY MAJOR / FLORIDA WEEKLYThe after school program at Heights Center. Melissa Barlow is conducting.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF MARCH 10-16, 2016 NEWS A9grants and fundraisers. The community foundation has also awarded $35,000 for the second year of the program, to begin in August. We need more instruments and another full-time teacher, says Maestro Kurtz, adding the hope is to maintain a teacher-student ratio of 1 to 10. And strings are expensive, he says, noting it will cost $1,500 for new strings for the current instruments and thats not even taking into account strings for the new instruments they need to buy for the additional students who will join the program. Every year, the student orchestra will be extended another grade (so the second-grade students in the orchestra this year will continue their music education when theyre in the third grade). While theyve started with stringed instruments, they hope to introduce woodwinds, brass and percussion, eventually having a full orchestra. The program will eventually be expanded for students from kindergarten through fifth grade. And any student at that point can go to Cypress Lake Middle School and continue their musical education, Maestro Kurtz says. They dont get left behind. Although theyd only been playing for a couple months, three of the students asked for and received violins for Christmas. To us, thats remarkable, says Maestro Kurtz. They didnt even know a violin existed three months ago. Imani Brown got a hot pink violin, which she uses to practice on at home. Some of the students want to change instruments. One boy says hed rather play bass so he can stand when he plays his instrument. Willow says she find her cello is too difficult to carry. I want a violin or viola, she says. Maybe next year. I really want a viola A viola is higher in pitch. But Julian says hell stick with the deeper-toned instruments. I like playing the cello, he says. The sound is good. C is the grumpiest because it is a low note.Music is powerMusic has power. Not only power to move the person hearing it as well as the person playing it, but power to change these students lives. In addition to learning how to read music and play an instrument, they are learning personal discipline, patience, critical-thinking skills, how to stick with a task, how to cooperate and work within a group, how to devote an extended amount of time doing one thing, how to problem-solve. Theyre developing memory skills, verbal and math skills and learning how to be more creative. Generally, kids in these type of programs do one letter grade better than their peers, and have increased reading skills and math skills, Maestro Kurtz says. According to Americans for the Arts, involvement in the arts is linked to higher academic performance, increased standardized test scores, more community service, and lower dropout rates regardless of students socioeconomic status. Findings by UCLA researcher James Catterall indicate that low socioeconomic-status students who are engaged in arts learning have increases in high school academic performance, college attendance and grades and in holding jobs with a future. Learning music also teaches impulse control and how to make better decisions. Impulse control learning not to play when there is a rest in the score is one of the most important lessons the MusicWorks! students learn, Maestro Kurtz says. What does it mean for their life? Maybe their friends are saying, Hey, lets do X, which is not a good idea. They can sit and think about it and not do it, because theyve learned to think about these things. Maybe I dont try that drug. We think about the consequence. Problem-solving, practice, repetition, achievement comes from doing things more than once and mastering it. The maestro says he is seeing slow, steady progress already in the students. We see changes slow, positive changes. This is not a magic pill. It is not the only thing. It will play an important role in their lives, but it wont be the only thing that will allow for their success. For one or two, it can be completely life changing. But hopefully, for the majority, if not for all of them, it will have a benefit and allow them to achieve more in school. And that, in turn, positively affects their families and, consequentially, their neighborhood. A report card on each child is sent home every week, explaining what the child has learned and achieved. A parent is to sign it, and can ask questions. Its a feedback loop, Maestro Kurtz says. In most of these childrens lives, the only time a parent hears from a teacher is when theres a problem. Weve worked very hard to change that paradigm. Maestro Kurtz, Ms. Barlow and others also make a phone call to each childs home at least once a month, just to talk with the parent and let them know they believe in their child. They understand Coming up The MusicWorks! orchestra performs a recital at 5 p.m. every third Friday of the month during the school year at the Heights Center, 15570 Hagie Drive in Fort Myers.

A10 WEEK OF MARCH 10-16, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY were really working to help their child be successful, Maestro Kurtz says. The most tangible result everyone can see is that the youngsters are playing an instrument. But the kids are also doing a little better in school. Give us a couple years and well have stronger statistical data, he says. The program also builds self-esteem and confidence. After a recital with her cello and bass students, Ms. Barlow asked how they felt. One said, Wow, I feel like a rock star! she says. They feel the positive. Theyre being recognized for doing something positive. They received applause and people are pointing out the good things theyre doing. They also grow in self-esteem because as another grade is added each year, the older students in the orchestra assist the younger ones. Its peer-to-peer learning, Maestro Kurtz says. Theyre going to be (showing) the younger kids: Hold your instrument like this, let me show you how to do that. It builds self-esteem for the older kids. And we all know theres nothing like teaching someone else to help you do something better.Spreading the programMaestro Kurtz founded the Gulf Coast Symphony 21 years ago. It consists of retired professional musicians, music teachers and other volunteers. Weve always been interested in education, he says. And now that weve grown our concert series to a maximum, as a full orchestra, weve begun to be more engaged with our community. We were asked to dream big, he says, adding fortunately, the Southwest Florida Community Foundation saw the benefit of MusicWorks! The longer the program is around, the longer it grows, the more of a difference we can make in the community, he says. Its not just about these 32 kids. It begins to be about the families and the community itself. Three other people in Lee County have asked Maestro Kurtz to start an orchestra in their neighborhoods. The Heights Center program, he says, is a test site for developing the program and the structure for how it needs to work in the bigger community. Down the road, the only thing that will prevent us from expanding it to other communities will be the money. Long term, he wants a full orchestra, not just strings, in the Heights Center program. But that will require more instruments, and a teacher for every instrument. Already, he adds, at least one member of the symphony assists at every afterschool lesson and rehearsal at the center. This orchestra is fully invested in the program from the very top, he says, from me to the board to the members of the orchestra, who understand the importance of it.Some historyMusicWorks! is based on El Sistema (The System), a program started in Venezuela in 1975 by Jose Antonio Abreu. It began with 11 students being taught in an underground parking garage. It revolutionized the country, ultimately teaching more than 750,000 kids how to play an instrument. Its Simon Bolivar Orchestra tours and made its debut at the BBC Proms in Londons Royal Albert Hall. It also played Carnegie Hall under the baton of Gustavo Dudamel, musical director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Mr. Dudamel credits El Sistema with saving his life. Another success story is Alcides Rodriguez, a clarinetist with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, who was quoted in Creative Loafing calling the System an open door to another dimension, a different world that I probably could have never seen. MusicWorks! at the Heights Center is one of more than 50 music programs in the U.S. inspired by El Sistema. We use music as a means of social change, a way to bring the community together and give youth the necessary tools and resources to become the future leaders of their community and beyond, Ms. Barlow says. Its huge, its unique, its impactful, Ms. Kelly says. Its absolutely life changing. Well keep growing with them while theyre here, Ms. Barlow says about the inaugural group of student musicians in the program. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

She was fulfilling an assignment to interview someone about entrepreneurship; Noemi had been doing her class work and in that way was prepared. And because she had attended The Immokalee Foundations etiquette luncheon and networking reception during her last two years in high school, she was prepared for the manners and formalities required, as well. It was definitely good for my confidence, Ms. Reyes said. And theres no way I would have known any of it without The Immokalee Foundation. She remembered the lessons she learned, such as waiting until her interviewee was seated before taking her own seat. She knew how to indicate to the wait staff that she was finished eating, how to properly excuse herself from the table and what to do if she didnt like the food that was served (try it, and then push it around a bit on the plate if eating the dish is out of the question). These are all lessons that a new group of students in the TIF Career Development program will learn March 15 at Shulas at the Hilton Naples. Area professionals are invited and indeed encouraged to attend the networking session that begins at 1:30 p.m. The goal is for 50 professionals to attend and help students practice important business skills. To participate, call 430-9122. We like to give back to the community, and its important that we do, says Jeff Jerome, director of marketing and sales at the hotel restaurant. The Immokalee Foundation has a lot of great values we believe in. Shulas has sponsored the luncheon several times; Mr. Jerome has heard many great questions being asked and also has been impressed with the TIF students eagerness to learn. These benefits also have been evident to Brenda OConnor, who is executive director of membership and marketing at the Naples Yacht Club. For several years, she has paired with Wilma Boyd, president and CEO of Preferred Travel in Naples and a longtime supporter of TIFs Charity Classic Pro-Am golf tournament, to teach the etiquette portion of the three-course lunch. Ill teach a little bit of how to host and network at the table, as well as what utensils to use and how to pass the bread basket (to the right), Ms. OConnor says. Students learn how to excuse themselves from the table and all the tips they need to show finesse. This way, students are prepared for a job interview, or to be the host for someone at a business lunch, or any other social or business situation they may encounter. They really want to learn, and theyre very attentive, she adds. She remembers being impressed last year when she arrived and each of the students shook her hand and thanked her for the opportunity they were given to learn and network. I find it very gratifying, and the students really seem to enjoy it, she says. The students day will begin at TIF in Immokalee with networking training by Dereck Lawry, CEO of Training for Teens. They will then board a bus for the Hitlon Naples and dine at Shulas while learning from Ms. OConnor. The networking event will follow the luncheon.

It has worked extremely well for cars like the Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic. But the new 2017 Hyundai Elantra is looking at this market differently. The Korean carmaker believes it has established its reputation for reliability on par with the other Asian companies. So rather than continue to spend money further reinforcing this status, Hyundai is investing in more premium features and materials. This new Elantra has moved upmarket. The design of the sheet metal has a cleaner and more uniform appearance that feels as mature as a Toyota Camry. Plus, optional LED accent lights running up the front bumper inlet are a nice touch. The base model begins at $17,985. This is the only way to get a five-speed manual transmission, which is what used to be a mainstay in this economy segment. Even at this starting point, it comes with nice features like air conditioning, satellite radio, power locks and power windows, but anyone looking to add options will first need the $1,000 upgrade to an automatic transmission. From there, the Elantra has only two trim levels, and each has only two upgrades. This helps the company bundle options, which helps with economies of scale. For example, the Popular Equipment package adds features like a touchscreen radio, rear view camera, cruise control, Bluetooth and more for a reasonable $800. From there it escalates to features not often found in this class, like blind-spot detection, leather seats, automatic emergency braking and lane departure warning. Checking every option box creates a sedan that leaves the dealership for around $27,500. Thats a good value for a car whose leather-wrapped steering wheel, multifunction display and generous backseat room is very reminiscent of the premium Genesis we drove in November. The standard 147 hp 2.0-liter motor offers good power, and the acceleration is brisk enough to perform passing maneuvers on a two-lane highway. Still, there are a few other companies out there that have livelier engines. The Mazda3, for example, does not have to move around quite as many luxury features, and its standard 2.0-liter motor has more power so it has a better performance feel. This is not necessarily an oversight by Hyundai. It has promised to introduce an Elantra Sport before the end of the year that will have a more spirited turbocharged engine.Besides, performance is not the main focus of this sedan. There was a lot invested in making sure it is quiet and comfortable. Theres so much isolation and so little vibration that the Elantra almost feels like it shuts off when idling at stoplights. There are some cars that actually have a Start/Stop feature that doesnt feel this smooth. It wouldnt even be a surprise if some of the horsepower budget was utilized for elevating the cars quality above the competition. This new Elantra has answered a question we did not know to ask. The best compact cars have traditionally been about getting some driving pleasure in a solid and value-priced package. Has this market shifted? Maybe the buyers are no longer looking for cheap thrills, and now they demand premium features and new technology without giving up the value price. More importantly for the Elantra, it provides a worthy rebuttal to the old argument that there are better-equipped pre-owned cars in the crowded $18K-$28K price segment. The idea of premium features for all has plenty of merit. The only pitfall is that keeping the price down means a lot of similar the packaging. This can create a bit of a cookie-cutter sedan image. But just like any good dessert, the 2017 Elantra is more about the quality of ingredients than what shapes it. So now you can get boutique shortbread for chocolate chip cookie prices. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com www.stopps-kidwell.com STOPPS & KIDWELLTAX & ACCOUNTING SERVICES28179 Vanderbilt Drive, Suite 2 Bonita Springs, Florida 34134 firstname.lastname@example.org Want to learn more?CALL US AT 239.992.9299Free Introductory Consultation

Buckle up for safety and because its the lawThe Collier County Sheriffs Office is joining law enforcement agencies around Florida in reminding motorists to buckle their seat belts and child restraints. The state law applies to all cars, pickups and vans. All passengers in the front seat must wear a seat belt. All passengers younger than 18 must wear a seat belt. Exceptions to the law are: mail carriers, trash haulers, newspaper carriers, individuals with a physicians note and those riding in the rear portion of a recreational vehicle. In Florida, children 3 and younger must be secured in a federally approved child restraint seat, while those ages 4 and 5 must be secured by either a federally approved child restraint seat or safety belt. The driver is responsible for buckling up a child. Florida has had a safety belt law since 1986, but law enforcement could only ticket unbuckled drivers when officers stopped them for other violations. The recent primary law allows law enforcement to stop motorists to for not wearing seat belts. www.oaktreedentistrynaples.com 90 Cypress Way East #20 Naples FL (Across From Sams Club) 239-596-5771 Insurance Processing Early Morning Appointments
A18 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 10-16, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY2016 Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest raises more than $2.8 million for pediatric health care SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe 2016 Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest raised more than $2.8 million to benefit pediatric health care in Southwest Florida. Made possible by title sponsor Pitbladdo Holdings, the festival featured chef/vintner dinners in private homes throughout the area on Friday, Feb. 26, and a grand tasting/auction at Miromar Lakes Beach & Golf Club on Saturday, Feb. 27. SWFL Childrens Charities is the founder of the festival; event co-chairs this year were Sandy Stilwell and Andie Vogt. Beneficiaries are Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida and pediatric programs and scholarships at Florida Gulf Coast University and Florida SouthWestern State College. The most anticipated item up for bid during the live auction was the lot featuring a signed bass guitar played by Cliff Williams of AC/DC and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame paired with a custom piece of jewelry created by Mark Loren from an AC/DC guitar pick adorned with diamonds and gems and suspended from a Cliff Williams bass guitar string. The lot went for $140,000, the highest bid of the afternoon. A four-night trip for four people to the Bahamas including a round of golf and day of fishing with U.S. Open champion Justin Rose went for $100,000, and a classic African safari with 13 days in Kenya and Tanzania went for $55,000. The re-creation of the James Beard House dinner created earlier this year in New York City by several Southwest Florida chefs raised $100,000. With bids of $5,000 per couple, 20 couples reserved their seats at Sea Salt restaurant in Naples on Oct. 30 to enjoy the meal by chefs Fabrizio Aielli of Sea Salt, Harold Balink of Harolds, Todd Johnson of Rumrunners and Norman Love of Norman Love Confections. Generous vintner donors doubled their original donations, allowing additional bidders to compete for an exclusive experience. A trip to Napa Valley for a five-night stay for eight at Gamble Family Vineyards was donated a second time and brought in $80,000 between the two bids. Williams Selyem Winery also donated a second trip for guests to become winemakers for a day as part of a three-night trip for four to the winery; the lot raised a total of $40,000. And Carter Cellars doubled its donation of a three-night wine country journey in Napa Valley and Humboldt County for four people; sold twice, the package raised $40,000. The original painting of an owl by 2016 Child Artist Avery McCaskill, a former patient at Golisano Childrens Hospital of Southwest Florida, raised $150,000. The painting will be put on display at the hospital for patients and visitors to enjoy. Finally, auction attendees also raised their paddles to support the hospital through SWFL Childrens Charities Fund-a-Cause initiative, pledging more than $800,000 for the special surgical instruments and communication and monitoring technology that a stateof-the-art childrens hospital needs to serve its patients. Donations of $100 and more continue to be accepted online, at swflwinefest.org/give-to-give. The afternoon concluded with the Pass the Hat portion of the live auction, where auction-goers added cash, jewelry and scholarships to FSW and FGCU. Pass the Hat raised $60,000 this year. The Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest has raised $15.6 million over the past seven years. For more information, visit swflwinefest.org.

Bright ideas According to a former spy for the Soviet Union, dictator Josef Stalin so distrusted his Communist China counterpart Mao Zedong during the 1940s that when Mao visited the USSR, Soviet engineers arranged to capture his bowel movements so that Stalins scientists could examine them chemically to form a psychological profile. Spy Igor Atamanenko found evidence that other world leaders received similar treatment. Among the indicators: High levels of the amino acid tryptophan signaled the person was calm and approachable, and lack of potassium portended nervousness and insomnia. Williams Lake, British Columbia, has the most violent crime per capita for its size (pop. 10,800) of any town in Canada, and in February the city council unanimously passed a dramatic action plan: to inject high risk criminals with GPS tracking devices. The program was immediately denounced by privacy advocates, but that challenge is almost beside the point since injectable GPS tracking does not even exist. (Councilors likely confused implantable microchips, which contain data but do not track, with GPS transponders, which track but only via sight-line contact with a satellite.)A religious message Local governments in Taiwans Southwest Coast National Scenic Area in Chiayi province recently put the finishing touches on a 55-foot-high church in the form of a shoe made from more than 300 glass panels (and costing the equivalent of about $680,000). According to a BBC News dispatch, no religious services will be held there; rather, the church will be a destination for weddings and feature other events tailored for glass-slipper-obsessed females.Uselessness of the Miranda warning The three young men charged so far in the Feb. 17 murder in a South Carolina bowling alley made their first postcrime courtroom appearances memorable ones. According to a WYFF-TV (Greenville, S.C.) report, Albert Taylor, 22 (and labeled as the shooter by police), seemed indifferent to the charges, but questioned the judge about courtroom cameras, appearing preoccupied. As he was being ushered out, he turned to address the camera and barked, Whats up, yall? You can follow me on Twitter, follow me on Instagram, Snapchat. Alex Smith, 38, asked a sheriffs deputy in Limestone County, Ala., at 3 a.m. on Feb. 19 for a courtesy ride to a nearby Wal-Mart, and the deputy agreed, but following procedure, said hed have to search Smith before letting him into the patrol car, and according to the subsequent arrest report, Mr. Smith, needing the ride, consented. The deputy then turned up a veritable drug supply store in Mr. Smiths pockets, his backpack and his duffel bags: drugs (meth, marijuana and black tar heroin), two syringes, a drug cooking spoon, two marijuana pipes, a meth smoking pipe and a supply of baggies of the type frequently used for drugs. Mr. Smith was charged with drug possession and trafficking.The square wheel of justice In February, New Yorks highest court finally said enough to the seemingly endless delays on a multimilliondollar judgment for negligence that occurred 23 years ago. Linda Nash had sued, among others, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey for injuries she suffered when trapped in an underground parking garage during the World Trade Center terrorist act. (No, not the one in 2001, but the bombing eight years before that, which killed six and wounded more than 1,000). Nash was 49 that day and is now 72, and after winning a $5.4 million jury verdict in 2005, endured 10 more years of appeals. In its final, unsuccessful motion in the case, the Port Authority said it had spotted a technicality and that Ms. Nash should start over.The continuing crisis Nostalgia, gone too far: Retired engineer Harry Littlewood, 68, watching workers tear down outdated public housing in Stockport, England, recently, rushed over to ask the local Stockport Council about recovering a souvenir since the teardowns included his residence growing up. The council agreed, and Littlewood was awarded the toilet he had used as a boy. I never thought Id see it again, he mused. He said he would probably turn it into a planter.Unclear on the concept Progressives anxiety disorder: Several students at the Ivy Leagues Brown University complained (quoted in a February story in the student newspaper) that classroom work (ostensibly what Brown charges $50,000 a year in tuition for) was increasingly a burden, distracting them from their more important calling: organizing and protesting against various injustices on campus. Students were underperforming academically (and suffering health problems and anxiety issues) because, said the students, Brown still expects them to complete course requirements even though they are busy denouncing racist columns in the student newspaper and challenging the weakness of Browns diversity policies (among other targets).

A22 NEWS WEEK OF MARCH 10-16, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYcounties. The remodel, valued at an estimated $1.75 million, was all done for free. It was an amazing gift that just fell into our laps, said a choked-up Laura Ragain, executive director of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of SWFL. The idea for the redesign started last July when Ms. Ragain received a phone call from interior designer Suzanne Costa. Ms. Costa had been a part of a team that reimagined the Ronald McDonald House on Long Island. Ms. Costa had been invited by Cary Kravet, a titan in the design world, to remodel a room for the charity in New York City. After the experience, she joined the groups board of directors, wanting to contribute more. When Ms. Costa moved with her husband to Naples, she decided to pop in and get involved with the charity. I was coming over to make a donation and say, Hi. I came in and realized that a small donation would not be as impactful as a project design and so I decided that I would try to see if I could get enough designers involved. Ms. Costas first step was to convince Home & Design magazine to run a photo spread of the redesign. Once the publication was on board, it was easy to attract designers like Constance A. Trutwin Interiors, Dwayne Bergmann, Ficarra Design Associates, Interiors by Design West, Jeffrey Fisher Home, Jett & Company, Kahn Design Group, KVS Interiors, KW Development & Design, Pure Design, Schlegel Design Group, Wright Interior Group and others. Materials, too, were provided at no cost by vendors like Kravet, International Design Source, Wilderness Furniture & Floors, and Currey and Company. Residents of the house were moved into nearby hotels and the team got to work remaking all of the original bedrooms of the house, the kitchen, dining room, common areas, restrooms, laundry room and all of the original flooring. The result is a place that feels like some of the toniest homes off of Fifth Avenue South, with marble countertops by Soho Kitchen and Design, a laundry room featuring splashes of bright color reflecting off brand new washers and even a bicycle hanging from the living room wall that matches the chairs in the room. Who it helps Nikki Pinola spent 106 days at the Ronald McDonald House in 2011 while her daughter, Destiny, fought for her life across the street at what is now Golisano Childrens Hospital. Ms. Pinola was pregnant with twins when her water broke at just 19 weeks. One child did not survive. After delivering her other baby prematurely at just over 22 weeks, Ms. Pinola was discharged from the hospital. She didnt want to leave her babys side, but the 45-minute one-way commute from Lehigh Acres made it challenging. Then a room became available at the Ronald McDonald House. If it wasnt for them, we wouldnt have been able to do so well, she says. Being close by meant that Ms. Pinola and her husband would be notified immediately whenever their daughters condition changed. They were able to attend touch-time sessions every three hours, where the parents were allowed to comfort and make contact with their child. Even on a lot of nights, I would go there and walk over to be with her. Today, Destiny is a happy, healthy 5-year-old. Shes a little firecracker full of life. She has no problems. Its amazing. Since it opened in 1996, the house has helped more than 2,500 families with seriously ill and injured children. Today, the charity is refurbished and renewed, offering a level of comfort and luxury to people like Ms. Pinola, who can use all the help they can get.

In recent research by the American Heart Association, although more than 88 percent of workers age 45 and older did not smoke and 78 percent had ideal glucose levels, fewer than 41 percent had ideal cardiovascular health in five other measures. The research also found wide variation in cardiovascular risk profiles by profession. The study, which was presented at the AHAs Epidemiology/Lifestyle 2016 meeting, involved 5,566 employed men and women, black or white, who did not have a history of heart disease or stroke at the beginning of the study. It found: Transportation/material moving workers: Nearly one-quarter (22 percent) were smokers, the highest smoking rate among the occupation groups included in the study. Sales, office and administrative support employees: Sixty-eight percent had poor eating habits; 69 percent of sales employees did not have ideal total cholesterol; and 82 percent of office and administrative support workers did not have ideal scores for physical activity. Food preparation and serving employees: This group of workers had the worst diet profile, with more than three-quarters (79 percent) having poor diet quality. Protective service workers: Ninety percent of police, firefighters and their peers were likely to be overweight or obese; 77 percent did not have ideal total cholesterol levels; and 35 percent had high blood pressure. Management/professionals: Overall, this category of worker had better cardiovascular health than the other categories. One-third had ideal body mass; 75 percent were at least moderately active; and just 6 percent were smokers. However, 72 percent of white-collar professionals employed in business and finance had poor eating habits. To assess worker health, the researchers examined seven modifiable risk factors derived from the AHAs Lifes Simple 7,an action plan for reducing heart disease and stroke risk. Participants health in each of the areas was scored as either ideal, intermediate or poor. Workers earned ideal scores if, without medicines, their blood pressure readings were lower than 120/80 mm Hg; total cholesterol was below 200 mg/dL; and/ or blood glucose was lower than 100 mg/ dL while fasting or 140 without fasting. Besides non-smoking status, a body mass index below 25 and engaging in intense, break-a-sweat activity four or more times a week, including at work, were also judged ideal. The lower the number of ideal cardiovascular risk factors, the easier it becomes to predict their future health ills, including premature death, heart disease, stroke and kidney disease, said Leslie MacDonald, lead researcher and senior scientist in the U.S. Public Health Service, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, of the Centers for Disease Control. But among the studys group of older workers, it was difficult to achieve ideal levels for all seven risk factors. In fact, no one did, largely because of the difficulty achieving an ideal diet, Ms. MacDonald said. Workers diets earned the top mark if they met at least four of five goals: consuming 4.5 or more cups of fruits or vegetables daily, 3.5 ounces of fish at least twice a week, less than 1,500 milligrams of sodium a day, 450 or fewer calories a week in sugary foods and three or more servings (each equivalent to one ounce) of whole grains daily. Older U.S. workers are not destined by age to have a poor cardiovascular health profile, Ms. MacDonald said, but some workers have more barriers to achieving ideal levels than others. Prior research has linked work conditions such as long work hours and low job control to metabolic and behavioral risk factors, which might contribute to the group differences found in the study. For example, inflexible work schedules or workplace demands can make it hard to find time to exercise or to shop for and prepare healthy foods. Job stress can also deplete workers resolve to prioritize their health, Ms. MacDonald added. Still, improving cardiovascular health is possible. Its important to take small steps and not get overwhelmed or discouraged, she said. Such small steps could include using lunch breaks to go for a walk rather than working through lunch, parking farther away from destinations and taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Over time, small steps accumulate into improved health. The participating workers were part of a broader project, the Reasons for Geographic and Racial Differences in Stroke study, called REGARDS, which includes more than 30,000 people. The research team classified jobs using U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics occupation groups and accounted for differences among the groups in age, race, sex and whether workers lived in the Stroke Belt a group of states, primarily in the Southeast, where stroke rates run high. The scientists also tested whether two factors related to occupation income and education might underlie the group-to-group variation. The study was supported by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, CDC; and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, NIH.

Vice President Andie Vogt and Sandy Stilwell, Southwest Florida Wine & Food Fest Co-chairs Avery McCaskill, Leukemia Survivor and 2016 Child Artist Community effort culminates in new pulmonary centerWe all know smoking is bad for you very bad. But many people dont realize that individuals who have never smoked can still suffer from lung disease. The fact is that pulmonary disease and disability is a misunderstood condition, usually and incorrectly associated only with the ravages of cigarette smoking. Helping people rehabilitate and maximize their lung function has been the longtime mission of Scott Wiley, our director of respiratory therapy, and of Pennie Finfrock, our newly retired lead respiratory therapist. Both were present to celebrate the recent dedicated of our 4,000-square-foot Growney Pulmonary Health Center. The backstory on this life-saving center is worth telling. NCH has had outpatient pulmonary rehab for decades with a dedicated and competent staff. But early on, the program was small, challenged financially and in need of expansion. One day, NCH Foundation staff member Miriam Ross introduced Naples resident James Growney to Mr. Wiley at the old, 1,600-square-foot facility at our North Naples campus. Mr. Growney had long knowledge of pulmonary disease and knew the importance of pulmonary centers. He had undergone pulmonary surgery at another hospital, and his late wife Kathleen was ill for an extended period and spent much time at NCH. Mr. Growney, therefore, had tremendous empathy for patients with this need. The day he toured the old facility, a lung transplant recipient patient was working out in the old facility, and the conversation turned to the needs of such patients for vigorous long-term pulmonary rehab therapy. Mr. Growney generously agreed to assist in the creation of a new center. Next began a community effort to raise more than $1 million. A big boost for the project came when Jim Hermes donated a mint-condition 1958 Chevy Impala convertible that was purchased by another friend of NCH with all the proceeds going to the facility. At our annual Honored Patron event, Ms. Finfrock had a conversation that resulted in a large anonymous donation. A special thanks goes to a current pulmonary patient, Thomas Middlemiss, for his pictorial documentation of the program and to NCH Foundation director Mason Ayres for organizing the campaign. Recently I spoke with patients there prior to a weekly educational session taught by the respiratory therapists, dieticians and pharmacists. One patient told me that after about two months of exercise, she was down to using oxygen only at night. Another said that she was previously homebound but now is able to get out and even grocery shop with some assistance. The center offers yoga classes three times a week for people with lung problems. Equipment for strength training is used extensively. The air-conditioning system has a specialized filtering capacity. The rooms have natural light and are attractively appointed. Its a great facility that encourages socialization among folks with similar challenges something thats very therapeutic in itself. Many of our fine respiratory therapists have been with NCH for years, among them: Joyce Hawes (15 years), Penny Hutchinson (19 years), Ellen Spencer (20 years), Connie Rumberger (18 years), Beth Shoup (20 years) and Bernie Olcheski (18 years). Exercise physiologist Brittney Mallard has been with NCH only a few months and already is a wizard at the centers sophisticated computer system. The Growney Pulmonary Health Center and a smaller facility at Marco Island are among the only pulmonary rehab centers in our area, presumably because reimbursement is so modest. Thanks to the generous support of donors in our community like those mentioned above, we are gratified to care for those whose needs would otherwise be neglected.

Rick Bhasin, MD, FAANSBoard Certi ed Neurosurgeon Clinical Af liation, Department of Neurosurgery University of Florida PET TALESDogs licking bowls or your feet should be checked out BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickQ: One of my dogs goes around licking the other dogs empty bowls for several minutes after eating. He also likes to lick one of our area rugs and sometimes the sofa upholstery. My other dog has a foot fetish: She loves to lick my feet. Whats going on with them? A: Compulsive licking sounds like it should be an underlying behavioral problem, doesnt it? Thats certainly a possibility, but it can also be a sign of a physical problem. My colleague Gary Landsberg, a veterinary behaviorist, says a large proportion of these environmental licking behaviors are due to underlying health issues that cause gastrointestinal upset. Among the conditions that might be causing a dog to feel nauseated are adrenal disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, intestinal lymphosarcoma and liver disease. Some dogs lick because they have dental or other mouth pain. Excessive licking can also be a sign of hunger its called an appetitive behavior. On the behavior side of things, excessive licking might signal anxiety or some type of conflict. Obviously, a veterinary exam can be a good idea. Consider filming the behavior so your veterinarian can see whats going on. A colleague did a study a couple of years ago and found that many dogs were improved when gastrointestinal signs were treated, Dr. Landsberg says. However, licking can arise in situations of anxiety and conflict, can be a reinforced behavior and can be a compulsive disorder. Therefore, look for behavioral, but rule out gastrointestinal or medical first. And if it turns out that theres nothing physically or mentally wrong with your dogs, well, maybe one just likes to make sure hes getting every last molecule of food from his dish and the other simply loves the taste of your feet. Dr. Marty BeckerQ: My boyfriend smokes. I know that smoking around pets isnt good for them, but he says that as long as he doesnt smoke near them, there wont be any harmful effect. A: You are right to be concerned about the effects of secondhand smoke on your pets. Theres a direct link between pets living in a smoking environment and a higher risk of health problems. And your boyfriend is wrong to think that stepping outdoors or into another room is enough to offset the risk. An ongoing study by the University of Glasgow found that while cats whose owners smoked away from them had a reduced amount of smoke taken into their body, the cats were not altogether protected from exposure. The same study found that a gene that acts as a marker of cell damage was higher in dogs living in smoking homes than those in nonsmoking homes. Professor Clare Knottenbelt, professor of small animal medicine and oncology at the universitys Small Animal Hospital, says, Our findings show that exposure to smoke in the home is having a direct impact on pets. It risks ongoing cell damage, increasing weight gain after castration and has previously been shown to increase the risk of certain cancers. Cats are especially at risk, possibly because they take in more smoke from grooming themselves. Veterinarian Victoria Smith, who is investigating the links between passive smoking and lymphoma, a cancer of the blood cells in cats, says, Our work so far has shown that cats take in significant amounts of smoke, and even having outdoor access makes very little difference. For his own health and that of your pets, encourage your boyfriend to stop smoking. If he wont, make a rule that he cant smoke in or around your home.

I have plenty of friends who love nothing more than spending an entire day swiping their plastic at Waterside Shops and think nothing of spending $695 on a pair of leggings (yes, leggings!). Others adore strolling Fifth Avenue South in search of the perfect designer swimsuit cover-up (pausing for $15 mojitos and martinis as needed). I admire my friends who shop until they drop without a care for the price, but theres still that part of me that can hear my mother reminding me never to throw out a zip-lock baggie (Theyre expensive. Just rinse it out and use it again!) and always to buy store-brand peanut butter (Read the ingredients. Its the same as Jiff and its $1 less!). That said, my shopping habits have evolved in some ways over the years. As a teenager and young 20-something, I woke up before dawn every Saturday to hit the biggest garage sales in the best neighborhoods. Thats where I found all my clothes, and later, the cutest baby outfits for my son. In my mid-20s, when I started to make a little more money, I graduated to Goodwill stores, where Id sift through the bins for the best buys. In my 30s, I discovered Ross Dress For Less, where I could buy brand spanking NEW clothes: a shirt for $5.99, a skirt for $7.49 and even a dress for less than $20. Ross became like crack to me. My poor son pretty much grew up in Ross Dress For Less, where Id spend hours trying on clothes back in the dark days, when children didnt have iPads or iPhones to ward off their whines of boredom. To this day, my son reminds me of almost entire weekends shuffling through the aisles of Ross oh, the guilt. While I still love Ross and Goodwill (Ive traded weekend garage sales for sleeping in), my latest weakness is Target. For years, I successfully avoided Target on the premise that it was too expensive. But, with a Super Target just six miles south and a regular Target just four miles east, I can no longer resist the call of the giant red circle. I can barely drive by a Target without stopping in on the premise that I NEED a container of Target tuna at the deli (seriously, Target has the best premade tuna salad in the universe). So, I swing in for the tempting tuna and decide that I need trash bags. But wait! On the way to the trash-bag aisle, Im drawn to the health and beauty section, where I pick up some eyeliner and lipgloss. Okay, onto the trash bags oh, look its the shoe section! After 20 minutes of trying on shoes, I realize that what I actually really need is a new bra, and the next thing I know, Im in the lingerie section, which is right next to CLOTHES and Im sorry, yall, but I love the high fashions of Targ et. I mean, where else can you score a cute swimsuit with built-in Spanx for less than $30? But, heres the thing: Once youve filled your red shopping cart with tuna, make-up, a bra, sparkly flip-flops, two swimsuits, a box of wine, a yoga mat (because someday you ARE going to do yoga) and a new set of towels for the guest bath youre nearly $200 in the hole. And its not until you get home that you realize you totally forgot the trash bags, which means youll have to go back tomorrow also, for more tuna, of course. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

MONEY & INVESTINGThe large trade deficit is not necessarily a bad thingI really cant stand almost everything that is said in political debates with regard to the economy, as most of it is just grandstanding at best and downright lies at the worst. However, one hot button political issue is true and is getting truer by the month Americans are buying more and more stuff made by people who are not Americans. Most politicians and want-to-be politicians will tell you that this is a bad thing, but I would take issue with that. Regardless of how you feel about this, last week the latest trade deficit figures came out and it was a huge number. In January, the U.S. imported $45 billion worth of goods more than it exported to other countries. And that is only for one month. So why was our trade deficit so large, and is this really a bad thing? The primary reason for the $45 billion differential between imports and exports is that exports slumped 2.1 percent to $176.5 billion in January, the lowest level since 2011. The drop was caused by a variety of factors. First, the strong dollar makes U.S. goods more expensive to foreign buyers. This will continue to be a strong headwind for U.S. multi-national companies in the months ahead. Second, many countries outside of the U.S. are economically struggling. Many have negative growth and as a result, consumers within those counties are buying fewer goods and services. Finally, many international governments are giving special incentives and subsidies to their domestic manufacturers to spur growth, making U.S. goods less competitive overseas. But before we come to the conclusion that foreign manufacturers are flooding the U.S. with their goods while blocking American products (as many politicians would like us to believe), it is important to note that imports were also down in January, by 1.3 percent. This can be a warning sign for our economy as the strong US Dollar makes international goods cheap. A weak import number indicates that U.S. consumers and businesses are not readily spending and maybe our economy is not as strong as we would like. So is a trade deficit a bad thing? As with most complex issues, the answer is it depends. On one hand, a large trade deficit caused by strong imports may be a positive thing, as it shows that the U.S. is consuming a lot of goods and services. This is indicative of a strong economy. On the other hand, a large trade deficit caused by a lack of exports is not very positive. It shows that either foreign governments are blocking the importation of our goods or that people and companies in those other countries do not desire them. Is there a solution for our large trade deficit? There is an easy solution to it put massive tariffs on all imports. While this would solve one problem, it would also result in other countries placing tariffs on U.S. goods, international trade grinding to a halt, and almost certainly a global depression. More beneficially, the easing of quotas, elimination of government subsidies, stabilization of exchange rates, and fair taxes across countries should boost exports and greatly benefit the U.S. That is why trade pacts typically spur growth and benefit all countries. But in the meantime, large trade deficits have been around for decades and will continue far into the future. And that doesnt bother me one bit.

High-skill, high-wage attainable jobs are the focus of FutureMakers, and our ability to work with our partners in business, education, government and the community is the key to transforming the workforce and creating a more vibrant economy. Julie Mathis, executive director of the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce, said the majority of the organizations members are small businesses. I think were very similar to other communities. We range from startups and new businesses to mom-and-pop companies, she said. Small businesses are a constant and will continue to grow and expand. Identifying and supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs like Mr. Katkin and Mr. Casimir will also factor into a sustainable workforce, Ms. LeSage said. Programs such as the Small Business Development Center at FGCU, the schools Institute for Entrepreneurship and a new entrepreneur minor offered through the department of management will also prove instrumental. Collier County Public Schools recognized the need to develop young entrepreneurs when it introduced INCubatoredu in 2013. The program provides high school students with the opportunity to create, develop, market and finance a product or service, receive coaching and mentoring advice from local entrepreneurs and business experts. Helping our residents start a business contributes to the regions economic health, Ms. LeSage said. Its only been recently we, as a country, have embraced the mindset that anyone with specialized skills can start their own business and be competitive against larger businesses. I think the shift toward shopping locally is helping small businesses thrive. The ability to own a small business also prevents brain drain by keeping residents in the area. Chances are they have a skill the public or other businesses need. Thats exactly the reason why Mr. Katkin and Mr. Casimir launched Atilus. People start their own business or freelance because their degree might not be what big businesses are looking for, Mr. Katkin said. They can subcontract with other companies and businesses.SWFL as a work destinationGiven its direct access to larger metropolitan areas via the Southwest Florida International Airport, its beaches and general lifestyle, Mr. Kettler sees the region as a work destination. We are in a really prime position to market the area as a great place to work, he said. And why not? Look at our cost of living and rent compared to San Francisco and New York. Florida is a businessfriendly state. Its among very few states that dont have a state income tax. For Mr. Katkin and Mr. Casimir, Southwest Florida was already home when they started Atilus in 2005. Although their client portfolio includes companies in New Jersey and Massachusetts, they stay connected through the Internet and technology. Their six employees work from home several times a week. Southwest Florida has a good quality of life and setting up and owning a business and being part of the community was easy compared to other areas, Mr. Katkin said. Technology gives us the flexibility to be geographically flexible.A growing trend for freelancersTechnology a constant no matter the business and a younger workforce that grew up on it are also contributing to the groundswell of employees and contract workers who may never work in a bricks-and-mortar office. Using freelance workers when a full-time position doesnt make good business sense helps the bottom line. The number of freelance workers has increased 20 fold in five years, said Mr. Kettler. Of the 151 million workers in the country, 53 percent are freelancers. Theres been a dynamic shift of employers using contract workers especially in companies led by Generation X. They get the same caliber of work. Also younger workers are demanding the freedom. Millennials, 18 to 34 year olds, now represent the largest population in the American workforce, surpassing Gen X during the first quarter of 2015. At 53.5 million, they account for more than one in three American workers, according to the Pew Research Center. Ellie Hofer, a single mother and former fulltime employee of 4What, which creates interactive multi-media learning applications for local and international clients, started working from home last summer after executives decided an onsite presence was not a requirement. She saves hours by eliminating the daily commute from Fort Myers to Naples and is home for her 6-year-old daughter. Hofer recently shifted from full-time to pay-per-job contracts to use her extra time to explore other passions. She loves teaching, wants to design educational video games, devote more time to painting and hopes to combine all of the above into her own entrepreneurial endeavor. Many companies also rely on freelance writers to contribute copy to websites, blogs and other print and digital platforms. Atilus was using several local and out-of-the-area writers until it recently created a staff position, Mr. Katkin said. Contract employees with in-demand health care degrees and certifications also enjoy the freedom to choose their hours and assignments. Many recent nursing assistant and practical licensed nursing graduates of Charlotte County Technical Center have opted to work as 1099 employees, a school representative said. The economy is shifting and entrepreneurs and freelance employees are critical to making the new economy work, said Ms. LeSage. Small businesses require the skills of freelancers to succeed because they cannot hire employees for every skill required to run their business. As a region of small businesses, the workforce must include individuals who can fill that gap. We need to work with our partners to support this freelance and entrepreneurial spirit to meet the demands of our economy.Minting entrepreneursIn todays business climate, good ideas often translate into success as entrepreneurs. We have to teach people how to start their own business, said Mr. Kettler. If they have a good product they reach clients all over the country. Its not like it used to be where a business was 10 to 20 minutes away in a physical location. Mike Gookin, president of Applied Physics Laboratories in Fort Myers, had a brilliant idea literally when he and his colleagues perfected the GPS Lock Light, which required astrophysics algorithms to determine when to turn on and turn off lighting in parking lots, on signs, outside homes and for a number of other applications. Lock Light employs nine and became commercially available in 2015. Chambers of commerce and other agencies also offer programs geared to budding entrepreneurs and small business startups. FGCUs Small Business Development Center provides 25 fulland part-time consultants in the five-county region to potential small business owners and hosts training events and expos to connect these entrepreneurs to companies dedicated to helping small businesses secure insurance and even startup capital. Its work complements the university Institute of Entrepreneurship which also prepares students to launch a business, said Lois Knox, SBDC director. New businesses will also spring up in the skilled trades as technical college graduates become business owners, filling the voids as the older generation of electricians, plumbers and air-conditioning experts retire. What were really seeing is a lack of skilled labor, said Ms. Knox. As parents we need to tell our children not everyone is cut out for college. Certificate programs are very important. We need plumbers and electricians and construction workers. Our homebuilding industry was the hardest hit in the country. We lost skilled labor to the north or construction workers retrained for other careers. Where the jobs will beMr. Kettler applauds the FutureMakers Coalition for bringing together stakeholders who will help shape that future workforce. The coalition is one of 75 metropolitan areas throughout the country working with Lumina Foundation to increase the quality of Americas workforce through increased post-secondary education college degrees and the ever-increasing demand for industry certifications. The U.S. lags behind other countries in the percent of citizens who have any post-secondary education. In Southwest Florida only 27 percent of the workforce meets the criteria; the FutureMakers goal is to increase that number to 40 percent by 2025. Employees with college degrees and trade-specific credentials make more money than their colleagues without either. The tech industry will continue to play a major role and influence every facet of the future of business in Southwest Florida. The Southwest Florida Regional Technology Partnership works with small tech companies by promoting networking opportunities for entrepreneurs and others in the field. It also introduces high school students to the possibilities of tech jobs requiring post-secondary certifications or four-year degrees, said administrator Deborah Johnson. Its annual TechMatch connects employers to future employees and interns. We have a blossoming ecosystem here of entrepreneurs in technology and also offer a pitch night for funding, Ms. Johnson said. Were seeing young software developers growing out of a business and spinning off to form their own companies. Dante Ciolfi, a website and dot.net instructor at Fort Myers Technical College, estimates about 40 percent of his students ages 18 to 68 start their own business, generally as consultants. One of those students was Jesse Cooper, a 2009 graduate, who worked on a contract basis for Puma, Clorox and local companies. He was a consultant for Fort Myers-based Chicos for more than a year before being hired fulltime as a web developer. Mr. Kettler predicts the success of the FutureMakers Coalition and Southwest Floridas economy will rely on small businesses. We have to be open-minded to get there, he said. Everybody needs to realize we have a completely ripe environment for success. Our research will continue, with an emphasis on identifying patterns, collaborations and communicating our findings to ensure local residents can access the programs, industry certifications and college degrees that best equip them for success in the jobs emerging and remaining in Southwest Florida, said Ms. LeSage.

The goal is to support employers who are having difficulty assisting their newly relocated employees partners with job placement in the Lee and Collier counties. The RPAP is a grassroots effort utilizing the heads of area businesses and their human resource departments to review and share the resumes of newly relocated individuals who are part of a job placement package. The program aims to create a portfolio of willing advocates who are focused on settling the families of relocating employees, which in turn will support overall workforce retention. We are launching this program to provide additional support to relocating families and their employers, says Christine Ross, president and CEO of the Bonita chamber. Low employee retention directly equates to high employer turnover costs, which accumulate to hundreds of thousands of dollars each year. If we can help to reduce this expense, we create a win-win situation for everyone involved. For more information, call 992-2943.

I trace my history back to 1885, when Albert Butz patented a furnace regulator and alarm. His business was bought out and eventually merged with a heat generator company. I introduced my iconic round thermostat in 1953. I was bought by AlliedSignal in 1999, but kept my name. Today Im an industrial giant with a market value recently topping $80 billion and an endearing ticker symbol. I employ 127,000-plus people and specialize in aerospace products and services; control technologies for buildings, homes and industry; turbochargers; and performance materials. About 50 percent of my offerings deliver energy efficiency. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Keep Those Fund Fees Under ControlMutual fund investors tend to look for funds with great performance records, but they frequently ignore the fees the funds charge. Thats not good, because fees can be costly. Learn more about them, avoid steep ones, and you may be able to improve your portfolios performance. After all, while you cant know how much a fund will earn for you in a given year, you can know how much it will be charging you. Heres a look at some key fund fees:Loads: These are simply sales charges commissions paid to brokers who sell funds. Most funds no longer charge them, but some do, and they can top 5 percent. If you deposit $6,000 in a fund with a front-end load of 5 percent, youll immediately lose $300. Ouch. Expense ratio: This number reflects what percentage of a funds assets are deducted from it each year, typically to cover normal operating expenses. The median expense ratio for all stock funds was about 1.3 percent in 2014, with plenty of funds charging a lot more (or less). The median for bond funds was 0.86 percent. The following two fees are included in a funds expense ratio. 12b-1 fee: Typically 0.25 percent, this is partly a marketing fee, covering a funds advertising and more. Ironically, the fee has fund shareholders bearing some of the cost of attracting additional money to the fund even though when funds grow too large, their performance can suffer. Management fee: This fee compensates the funds management regardless of their performance. All the fees a fund charges add up and partly explain why most funds underperform the market average. If a fund averages a 10 percent return but charges you 2 percent in fees, your return is down to 8 percent. Thats why many investors rightfully prefer index funds, which tend to cost far less. Vanguards S&P 500 index fund, for example, features an expense ratio of just 0.17 percent. Still, there are some top-notch funds out there with relatively low fees and market-beating track records. I Wish Id Bought a CDOne of my dumbest investments was my very first one. I work in academic biology and personally knew some of the people who struck it rich when Genentech went public in 1980. I wanted in on this bonanza, too, so I scraped together some money and bought some shares of Cetus shortly after it went public in 1981. The stock ended up in the toilet and stayed there for years, while I hung on. At one point, the stock shot way up and I sold, making a profit. I was congratulating myself on this big win when I decided to calculate how much I would have made if Id just kept the same amount of money in a CD. It turned out I would have made more with the CD. I learned that big stock bonanzas are rare and that its prudent to make money more reliably. D.M., San FranciscoThe Fool Responds: Cetus bet big on a single anti-cancer drug and ran out of money before being able to gain FDA approval. Cetus was bought by Chiron in 1991. (And Chiron itself was bought by Novartis in 2006.) Youre right that its valuable to consider all alternatives. Interest rates were high at that time in the mid-teens. That even tops the stock markets long-term average growth rate. Plus, CD interest payments were much more of a sure thing than a stocks performance. Real Estate DividendsIf youre in the market for dividend income, consider Ventas (NYSE: VTR). Its a real estate investment trust (REIT) focused on the health care arena, with close to 1,300 senior housing communities, medical office buildings, skilled nursing facilities, hospitals and other properties in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. Ventas revenue has more than tripled since 2010, but its free cash flow has turned negative in the past few years, in large part due to aggressive acquisitions. These may put pressure on results in the near term, but they set Ventas up for further growth in the years ahead. In 2015, Ventas posted 9 percent yearover-year growth in its funds from operations, with net operating income rising by 4 percent. Rising interest rates may depress Ventas and other REITs, too, but its debt load is very manageable. The companys long-term prospects remain bright, as populations grow, age, and need more medical services. Ventas forward-looking price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 30 is well below its five-year average of 44. And with price-to-book-value, price-to-sales and price-to-cash-flow ratios also below the companys five-year averages, Ventas is appealingly priced. It offers shareholders a significant dividend, too, recently yielding a hefty 6 percent and it has hiked its payout many times, with plenty of room for further growth. Consider buying now or waiting and hoping for an even better entry price. I trace my roots back to the 1963 founding of a health and beauty store in Lowell, Massachusetts. I bought more than 1,200 Eckerd drugstores in 2004 and merged with Caremark Rx in 2007. In 2014 I stopped selling tobacco products. Today, based in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, I encompass about 9,600 retail pharmacies and more than 1,100 walk-in MinuteClinics and am a major pharmacy benefits manager with 75 million-plus members. Im buying Targets pharmacies, too. More than 70 million households have my card and I employ more than 24,000 pharmacists. My market value recently topped $100 billion. Who am I? (Answer: CVS Health) Seeking Great StocksQTo find great stocks, am I right to seek ones with low P/E ratios and high dividend yields? S.K., Danville, CaliforniaAThats a solid start, but look beyond those measures, too. After all, many great stocks pay little or no dividends at least while theyre still young and growing rapidly. Facebook, Netflix and Amazon, for example, along with Warren Buffetts Berkshire Hathaway, pay no dividend. Companies also sometimes have high yields and low price-to-earnings ratios only because their stock price has tumbled due to some major trouble. Consider Avon Products, which has been struggling for many years now but recently sported a fat dividend yield of 6.3 percent. During the past five years, its shares fell from above $30 apiece to below $4. Its dividend has been slashed by 74 percent, too. Two years ago, Avons shares were near $20 apiece, with the same $0.24-per-year dividend payout its offering now. Thus, the yield then was roughly 1.2 percent ($0.24 divided by $20). But since the shares have plummeted, the yield is now far higher: $0.24 divided by $3.80 is 6.3 percent. Never make a purchase decision based on very few numbers. The more you learn about a company, the sounder your decision should be. ***QIm a total novice investor. Where can I learn about impending initial public offerings (IPOs)? R.Y., Muskegon, MichiganANew investors should avoid IPOs. Theyre notoriously volatile and frequently dont fare too well in their first year. Its also usually only the rich or well-connected who get to buy shares at their low initial price. The rest of us are at a disadvantage, having to buy at later, higher prices.

Little, Brown. 400 pages. $28. Those who follow the Harry Bosch series know that Bosch has been forced into retirement and is fighting the way it was done. Bitter and at loose ends, he needs something to occupy his time and his talents. Wouldnt you know it? His half-brother Mickey Haller, flush from the fame brought by a film based on him starring Matthew McConaughey, has a proposition for Harry. Haller believes he has a client who is innocent of the murder charge brought against him. So, what else is new? Isnt this what defense lawyers are all about? Well, not really. This is a special case; Haller suspects that DaQuan Foster has been set up to take the fall for the exceedingly brutal rape and murder of Lexi Parks. A well-known public official, Lexi is married to an LAPD detective. Its a sensitive case, and Haller has no defense. In fact, his regular investigator, who had begun working the case, was seriously injured in a driving mishap. In a preamble, Mr. Connelly reveals that two men, Ellis and Long, and had forced the investigator into oncoming traffic. Bosch is reluctant to get involved in this. To assist Haller would be to betray his decadesold place in the legal system. Hed be crossing a line, especially if his task is to help a guilty person get away with a horrible crime. However Haller, never without a forceful argument, finds the angle that gets Bosch to at least look into things. Soon, Bosch is hooked. He goes to work for the Lincoln Lawyer (so-named in the first book of the Haller series). As is consistently the case in Mr. Connellys work, the step-by-step uncovering of information is meticulously and intriguingly presented. Bosch has sharp antennae, well-honed skills, perseverance and clever misdirection in his arsenal. His scrutiny of the LAPD records of this investigation raises questions that demand answers. Security videos in various locations around L.A. raise more questions. Boschs competent and cagey interviews move from questions to answers or suspicions that need further checking. Out of the remarkable massing of details comes the rising suspense that grows in Bosch and is transmitted to the readers. In this case, so much depends upon the history of a luxury wristwatch that had been sent in for repair. It had been given to Lexi, and it bothers Bosch that is has not been accounted for. The situation of the wristwatch is one piece, but a major piece, of the investigatory method. As the author writes: The job of the investigation is to find the crossing, the place where the circle of the victims life overlaps the circle of the predator. Hallers investigator is one victim, the person who is Fosters alibi becomes another, and the owners of the estate sale business where the watch was purchased also become victims. Perhaps the path of Lexis murderer overlapped with the path of those other victims. In Boschs mind, someones path did. The portrayal of his more and more frantic pursuit of crossover clues is simply scintillating. Aside from the intricate and compelling story of the investigation, many other ingredients enrich this literary feast. Among them: the sensitive development of the relationship between Bosch and his teenage daughter Maddie; the masterful descriptions, both physical and atmospheric, of Los Angeles neighborhoods; the inner workings of the LAPD, including Boschs changed status as a man on the other side of the legal system; and Hallers lawyerly savvy and style. Do you like your Bosch on streaming television? The author writes on his website, michaelconnelly.com: December 1, 2015. Its a wrap! We finished filming Bosch season two today. We turned Malibu into Italy and finished up with Harry considering the grave of a killer who got away with it. I think we got good stuff and look forward to rolling out 10 new episodes soon! I cant wait. Nor can I wait for Michael Connellys next novel. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. h i M L o g philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com CONNELLY

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF MARCH 10-16, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY His music is a gumbo of blues, rock and zydeco. I think with roots music in general, there are so many influences, he says. Thats the thing I love about it. Its hard to summarize that. I play slide guitar as a prism for all those influences. Any song that Ive written, its tough to describe, tough to put your finger on. Mr. Landreth headlines the Bonita Blues Festival in Riverside Park, taking the stage at 7:45 p.m. Saturday, March 12. The festival runs Friday and Saturday, March 11-12, and includes musicians Victor Wainwright, Damon Fowler, Tommy Lee Cook, the Moss Family Reunion and the Albert Castiglia Band with Sean Chambers. Mr. Landreth will play songs from previous albums as well as his most recent, Bound by the Blues, a collection of many of the earliest blues songs he learned, including Robert Johnsons Walkin Blues and Dust My Broom. The new album also includes covers of Big Bill Broonzys Key to the Highway and It Hurts Me Too by Elmore James. Mr. Landreth says Bound by the Blues is the kind of album he wanted to do for a long time. The validity of those songs resonates more than ever, he says. I realized, looking back at it, that as I evolved as a musician and was learning, coming up with new ideas and techniques, Id bring all that back to these songs. It gave me a newfound appreciation. As Ive changed and grown, so has my interpretation of these songs. Thats an important thing about playing the blues: There is something traditional, and you want to honor that. Its important to know where to draw that line. At the same time, however, he says, You want to bring something new to the table and interpret it in a new way and in a new voice my singing voice, but also with my guitar. He does wonder what the original blues masters would think of his interpretations of their songs. What in the world would Elmore James think of this? he says. You want to feel good about that. Maybe in the final analysis, thats the most important criteria: If you can make peace with what you ended up with, if you could play it for them, is it something youd feel good about? Hes used the same criteria for contemporary artists as well. He notes that he played a lot of dates with the late BB King and for a long time he hesitated to play anything that Mr. King had ever played. But the problem was, hes done everything, he says. But once you develop your sound, it gives you a confidence, and you have a track record, and that gives you confidence. And you put it all together. Part of what he wanted to do with his new album, he says, was pay tribute to his heroes. I think thats one of the greatest exchanges, he says, where youre playing a song that you learned from the great masters, and youre interpreting it in your own way. Thats a beautiful thing. He notes that he first recorded Mr. Broonzys Key to the Highway on an album decades ago, in 1981, and says that version is totally different than whats on Bound by the Blues. The new album opens with a rollicking version of Walkin Blues, a song made famous by Robert Johnson in 1936. He was my favorite, the most profound, Mr. Landreth says about Mr. Johnson, I absolutely cannot play anything like him, no way. And yet, still, like so many others he influenced, thats a powerful statement. He didnt have a vast amount of songs that he recorded, but to this day, those songs are still (having) an impact. It wasnt long ago, they did a complete boxed set of his songs, and that really says something. The Bound by the Blues album cover looks as if its from the 1950s or s. Thats Megan Barra, she does all my albums, Mr. Landreth says about the designer (who had a Grammy nomination for her design of his Levee Town album). Shes incredible She has a vast collection (of old blues records.) She knew exactly what she was shooting for. An inside photo shows Mr. Landreth with his guitar, with a collage of photos of blues and guitar masters behind him, including images of Jimi Hendrix and Mr. Johnson. Mississippi-born, Mr. Landreth drew up in Lafayette, La., absorbing its sounds. He first learned to play the trumpet, admiring the work of John Coltrane and Miles Davis. When he switched to playing guitar, he incorporated their sense of improvisation. I approach the guitar with the same mindset, he says. Because when playing the trumpet, your phrasing is completely oriented around taking a breath, and there are melodic sensibilities about that, lyrical sensibilities. Early in his career, he played with Clifton Chenier, the King of Zydeco. I grew up hearing his music, he says. It was electrifying. Clif had total command of his music and the stage. He had such great charisma. He says he saw Mr. Chenier perform from both sides of the stage first, as an audience member, then as a fellow musician on stage with him. He discovered Clifton Cheniers music when someone told him, Hey, theres this guy who plays blues on the accordion. I couldnt imagine that, he says. We went to go hear him play. He saw us standing outside of the Creole Club in town. He invited us in, and thats when I first met him, when I heard him play that night. He met the legendary Mr. King around the same, too, after reading about him in interviews with Mr. Clapton, Mr. Mayall all the English greats mentioned him, he says. He drove to a little club about 20 minutes from his house to see Mr. King for the first time. BB was still doing the chitlin circuit, he recalls. There werent a lot of people there, but it didnt matter to him. He played as if there were thousands. He took a break, I walked up to the bar where he was sitting and talked with him, and he was a sweetheart. Just really gracious and took his time with me. Around the same time, he went to Baton Rouge with some friends and bumped into Mr. Hendrix in a gift shop. All that happened in that time frame, and they all had a really big influence on me, he says. Those experiences are priceless. They also influenced his playing; you can hear blues, rock and zydeco in Landreths playing. He has also been called The King of Slydeco, as he plays zydecoinfluenced music on slide guitar. Because of his own experiences, he takes time to talk with younger players who approach him. I know exactly how that feels, he says. Its important to make that connection, I think. After all, you want to hand it down for others. When youre gone, if theyre influenced by you, thats part of you thats continuing on. Its all recycled, but with a different twist, different ideas. Its an art, truly, to simulate your influences and create your own voice, your own sound and your own style. With the slide guitar, he says, I realized early on that the sky was the limit. And I realized the potential for slide to create a lot of different sounds. That goes back to the early Mississippi Delta blues, when musicians would use a slide to embellish the songs, perhaps to capture the wail of a train. He was also influenced by Mr. Hendrix. What people thought were the limits of the electric guitar, he blew that out of the water and brought it to another galaxy, he says. Seeing what those musicians did, he says, spurred him to open up his ideas of what slide guitar can sound like. Its a matter of not holding preconceived notions, he says. You want to leave room for the unexpected.

Back by popular demand Thursday March 17 7:00pm Tickets: $22 In Advance $25 at the Door SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYThe world premiere of Marcus Jansen Examine and Report has been selected to open the sixth annual Fort Myers Film Festival. The documentary by filmmaker John Scoular features the celebrated Southwest Florida artist whose work has been exhibited on an international scale for the last two decades. It includes interviews with art celebrities and personalities including Steve Lazarides, Lawrence Voytek, West Rubinstein, Brooke Lynn McGowan, Noah Becker and Dieter Rampl. Mr. Jansens work will be shown over the next two years as a traveling solo exhibition at major museums. I cant tell you just what this means to our community to be playing the world premiere of this film right here in Fort Myers, said Eric Raddatz, film festival director and presentation editor for Florida Weekly. His work continues to be such an international inspiration. One day you will look back on this moment and realize you got to see something truly amazing with this one. The film takes a look at Mr. Jansens influences, beginning with his childhood years spent in the Bronx and Queens, N.Y. He was later transplanted to Europe and educated in Moenchengladbach, Germany, in a German-speaking school where he studied commercial painting and graphic design. Jansen is a Gulf War veteran who started selling his art from street corners between Prince Street and Broadway in New York City as part of the so called Prince Street Kings. His works subsequently moved to international exhibitions and museum collections around the world. The documentary features one of the artists dealers, Mr. Lazarides, as well as art historians, collectors and artist friends who have influenced Mr. Jansen. They dissect his work and motivation for painting and also examine the direction of his socio-political urban influences, which have gained more and more critical attention and acclaim in recent years. Under the direction of Mr. Scoular, who is best known for Lunatics, Lovers and Poets, the documentary about Mr. Jansen was shot in New York, Miami, London and Fort Myers, where the artist lives and works from his studio loft space called Unit A. Mr. Lazarides is also known as street artist BANKSYs first agent. Mr. Voytek was Robert Rauschenbergs director of art production for more than 30 years. Ms. McGowan is an art historian, writer, curator and worldwide expert on Mr. Jansens works. The film also includes interviews with Mr. Jansen and footage of him at work.The festivals opening-night Thursday, April 7, at Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall will include a red-carpet rollout with the films cast and crew, a questionand-answer session about the project and an after-party. Tickets are $19 for general admission and $99 for VIP.Additional highlights Maya Angelou and Still I Rise, by Bob Hercules and Rita Coburn Whack, who plan to attend the festival. Screened only at Sundance prior to the Fort Myers event, the documentary takes an intimate look at the authors early years, from a tumultuous childhood riddled with sexual abuse and racism, to her ascent to become one of the most celebrated and inspirational figures of our era. In the film are Diahann Carroll, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Common, Jules Feiffer, Nikki Giovanni, Lou Gossett Jr., Guy B. Johnson, Quincy Jones, Robert Loomis, Dan Martin, Louise Meriwether, Valerie Simpson, John Singleton, Cicely Tyson and Oprah Winfrey. The directors will attend screenings at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center Friday, April 8, as well as at the free screenings being offered to students and participants at the Quality of Life Center and Heights Foundation the day before.

ARTS COMMENTARYThe Naples Players have created a monster mash of humor and funLike Frankensteins monster, the musical Young Frankenstein is a real patchwork of this and that. The show, of course, is the one by Mel Brooks based on his 1974 movie of the same name, which itself was a satire of the 1931 film, Frankenstein (which was based on Mary Shelleys classic novel of the same name.) A satire of the horror movie, the play is also a sly tribute to well-known musicals. Thanks to director/choreographer Dawn Lebrecht Fornara, The Naples Players dance numbers are a mixture of tap dancing, soft shoe, Jewish folk dancing and ballet. And the humor ranges from sight gags to clever lyrics to highly sexual jokes and situations. But, just like Frankensteins monster, it functions. It works. Its all in good fun, a show determined to do anything to get a laugh. Its too smutty f or young children, though teens will snicker at the sexual references. There are jokes about penis size, about sexual frustration and fulfillment, and a song called Please Dont Touch Me, in which Elizabeth (Mary Anne McAvoy McKerrow) describes the various ways she wont allow her fianc, Dr. Frankenstein (James Little) to touch her. Hes forbidden from kissing her, touching her hair or even holding her hand. Elizabeth is high maintenance to the extreme, and also a tease. Ms. McKerrow had me in stitches near the end of her song, when she belts out an entire lyric consisting of, Tits! Tits! Tits! Tits! Silly, yes, but also gloriously funny. Roll in the Hay, performed by the sexy Inga (Elizabeth Marcantonio) and Dr. Frankenstein in a horse-drawn cart filled with hay, was an audience favorite on opening night and is as suggestive as its name implies. Not as obvious as the sexually saturated songs are the tributes to classic musicals. Please Dont Touch Me, set on a pier with a ship about to sail, is reminiscent of a similar scene in Anything Goes. The opening lyrics to The Brain, where they sing, There is nothing like a brain, is similar to the line There is nothing like a dame, in South Pacific. A short scene at the Tran sylv anian railway station is straight out of Fiddler on the Roof (though the man who looks like Tevye is actually a shoeshine man). The Hermits solo, Please Send Me Somebody is very Al Jolson. And Frau Bluchers solo, He Vas My Boyfriend is a Cabaret number, complete with sexy poses on a wooden chair. And the angry townspeople with rifles and pitchforks might remind you of the hordes in Les Miserables. Young Frankenstein would be challenging for any community theater to produce, but The Naples Players are more than up to it. Ms. Fornara does a lot with a little. The show presents many visual surprises and Mike Santos provides creative set designs and props. That, combined with Dot Achmoodys costumes, makes for a musical that delivers more than one might expect. (Kudos, as well, to Shari Brousseau for creative hair and wig design, and her crew, Gigi Barbara and Nancy Willis, as well as the outstanding make-up crew: Patty Traverse, Mark Vanagas and Jo Ann Wipperfurth. Apparently, it takes a village to make a monster look so green and stitched together.) Mr. Little is sweet and vulnerable as Dr. Frankenstein, a scientist who rejected his grandfathers experiments in animating dead matter but who now somehow finds himself seduced by them (and by the sexy and very uninhibited Inga). Even when he had to grapple with microphone problems on opening night, Mr. Little succeeds in making his character very likeable. But Igor (Brent Nicholas), his hunchbacked assistant who sticks close by his side, almost steals the show. Mr. Nicholas is a natural and provides a Broadwayworthy performance. The same can be said for Debi Guthery as Flau Blucher, an obvious audience favorite. Ms. Guthery manages to make her character both stern and humorous, and her sexual gyrations during He Vas My Boyfriend are crazy, over-the-top hilarious. Jim Corsica is silly as Inspector Hans Kemp, though his Transylv anian accent is a little too thick for comprehension at times, and Jack Weld plays the village idiot with wide-eyed innocence and glee. Frankensteins monster (Randall Kenneth Jones) presents more laughs than frights. Hes loveable, a towering green monster perpetually perplexed by the world. Given an abnormal brain, instead of the highly intelligent one intended for him, he communicates with grunts and groans and moans. Mr. Jones is perfect in the role. As hes limited verbally, he makes the most of expressing himself with his eyes, like a silent film star. This cast of almost three dozen works hard, appearing as villagers, mad scientists, tap dancers and ship passengers. The songs are strong and well executed, under the musical direction of Charles Fornara. The production could be even better with a few minor tweaks. When using accents, the actors should always strive for clarity. And some can play their roles even bigger; in a show like this, with this type of humor, theres no such thing as too much. I also wished some scenes of violence were performed more realistically; from the audience, it was obvious the actors were pulling their punches. Young Frankenstein is The Naples Players spring musical; theyre traditionally so popular they sell out, so be sure to buy your tickets sooner than later. Its not quite The Producers, but its definitely 100 percent Mel Brooks humor: goofy, silly, Borscht Belt, off-color, pushing-the-boundaries and, yes, humorous, even if some jokes make you groan like Frankensteins monster.

Stay the course. The outcome will be well worth your efforts. ARIES (March 21 to April 19) The week promises a calmer aspect. Although there might be some lingering effects of a recent job problem, things should continue to ease up. Also expect a change in a home-based situation. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) If you feel uneasy about a colleagues suggestion, it might be that your wise inner Taurean guide is alerting you to a potential problem. Stepping away could turn out to be the right thing to do. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A family get-together opens up new opportunities for renewing ties. It can be especially effective in dealing with disagreements that should have been, but never were, fully resolved. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might be surprised at the response you get to a recent decision. You might be even more surprised by the reasons behind it. In any event, youll learn something important. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Your aspects favor resolving any tensions left over from a recent incident. You might want to consider having a clear the air talk as soon as you can. A call can lead to a change of plans. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Avoid repeating yourself. If your first few efforts fail to connect, maybe its because you havent found the right way to get your message across. Try changing your approach. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Good intentions plus a strong resolve to succeed can take you where you want to go. Dont give up just because someone suggests you might be pursuing an impossible cause. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) An unexpected setback can be a blessing in disguise. Use it to recheck your facts and how youve presented them. Meanwhile, look for ways to expand your contacts. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You should finally be seeing a positive change in a recent personal situation. However, an on-the-job matter might need more attention than you realized. Stay with it. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) While you should be close to completing an important matter, you still need to focus on being focused. But things ease up in time for weekend fun with family and friends. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A certain matter might take an unexpected turn. Dont simply accept it; ask for an explanation. What you learn might be helpful in shifting the situation around to your benefit. BORN THIS WEEK: While you enjoy tradition and stability, you also appreciate the good things that change can bring.

CONTRACT BRIDGEBetter safe than sorryBY STEVE BECKERAt the start of play, it is not sufficient for declarer to adopt an approach merely because it is likely to succeed. Rather, he should seek the line of play that offers the maximum chance of success. Consider this deal from a pairs tournament. At most tables, the final contract was four spades, but about half the declarers finished down one after failing to find the approach that offered the greatest chance of yielding 10 tricks. A club was the usual opening lead, South ruffing East's ace on the second round. At the tables where the contract failed, declarer next cashed the A-K of diamonds and then tried to ruff his low diamond in dummy. West ruffed with the jack, and since South still had to lose a heart and a trump trick, the result was down one. While these declarers were admittedly unlucky to find the diamonds divided 5-2 and the trumps 4-1, and even more unlucky that the player with the doubleton diamond held a singleton high trump, the fact remains that they did not give themselves the best chance to make the contract. Since there was always the possibility however remote that one opponent might have been dealt fewer than three diamonds plus a singleton 9, 10 or J of trumps, it would have been more prudent for declarer to draw one round of trumps before tackling the diamonds. This would have made it impossible, assuming no worse than a 4-1 trump break, to lose a trick to a diamond ruff and also a subsequent trump trick. Those declarers who made four spades saw that it could cost them nothing to cash a high trump at trick three before attempting to ruff a diamond, and they took this simple extra precaution. The others paid the full price for their omission.

ORIGINAL DIRECTION & CHOREOGRAPHY BY SUSAN STROMAN FILM CAPSULESWhiskey Tango Foxtrot (Tina Fey, Martin Freeman, Margot Robbie) A TV news journalist (Ms. Fey) battles sexism and bureaucracy while covering Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan starting in 2003. Ms. Fey shows a mix of dramatic acting chops alongside her perfect comic timing, but the film as a whole doesnt handle the shifting tones between comedy and drama nearly as well. Still, its intriguing and enjoyable. Rated R.Triple 9 1/2(Kate Winslet, Anthony Mackie, Casey Affleck) A rookie detective (Mr. Affleck) unwittingly gets caught in the middle of a Russian mob boss (Ms. Winslet) and the corrupt detective (Mr. Mackie) and his band of thieves who are part of her payroll. The story has some predictable twists, but it lacks surprises. Its decent overall, but dont expect much. Rated R.The Witch (Anya Taylor-Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie) In Puritan New England circa 1630, a family that lives on its own in the woods is tormented by witchcraft. Its minimalist and moody, though not altogether enticing. Shocks come, but there are too few. Rated R.Deadpool 1/2(Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. 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.

YesWhat an inspired, joyful work Zootopia is. Its an animated movie colored by a dynamic and diverse city, memorable furry characters and the perfect amount of humor and warmth for audiences young and old to enjoy. Its an absolute delight. No humans appear at any time. This is an animals world where they live just like we humans do, from parking tickets to smart phones and everything in between. The main character is Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin), an ambitious bunny rabbit who wants more than anything to be a cop in the big city. Her parents (Bonnie Hunt and Don Lake) want her to stay in their agricultural small town and be a carrot farmer, but Judys dreams take her to the police department in Zootopia, a sprawling city of vastly different boroughs (desert, rainforest, cityscape, snowy cold) populated by everything from a tiny arctic shrew to massive African elephants. As a small-town girl in a big city, Judy has growing pains. Police Chief Bogo (Idris Elba), a big Cape buffalo, assigns her to parking ticket duty even though there are 14 missing mammals and none of her colleagues have made headway with the investigation. Then shes taken advantage of by a sly fox named Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) and is overwhelmed by people telling her to give up on her dreams. But a break in the case for the missing mammals prompts her to blackmail/team up with Nick to find the culprits before Chief Bogo fires her for insubordination. There is genius all over Zootopia, but perhaps the most ingenious decision of all was a practical one: Animal characteristics suggest but do not dictate characters personalities. For example, theres a terrifically funny scene inside a DMV. With human DMVs known for slow service, the filmmakers posit none other than slow-moving sloths as DMV employees, immediately providing adults something to relate to and kids plenty to laugh at as Judys manic energy plays against the sloths deliberate pace. Similar references to The Godfather and Breaking Bad as well as Targoat, Hoof Locker and more keep adults engaged throughout. All the while, kids will love every second of the cutesy animals and their behavior, especially an overweight cheetah named Clawhauser (Nate Torrence) and a yak named Yax (Tommy Chong). The films creation at Disney Animation (not Pixar), which previously gave us Big Hero 6 and Frozen, was a team effort to be sure. Eight people are credited with contributing to the story, and directing was a three-person operation between Byron Howard, Rich Moore and Jared Bush. In live action, multiple creative forces often lead to a disjointed story; in animation, this type of collaboration is more common, albeit not to this extent. Regardless, it all works, save for one nitpicky portion that conveys racial overtones and the danger of stereotypes that feels forced and unnecessary. Otherwise theres nary a misstep throughout the 108-minute running time, which feels just right. The 3D, especially on an IMAX screen, is bright and immersive. Action scenes are clear and easy to follow, and the animation is crisply detailed right down to the hair on each wolfs chinny-chin-chin. The next Oscar ceremony is a year away, but its hard to imagine Zootopia not being nominated for Animated Feature. Its thats good. c t a s o e s dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Idris Elba is the voice of villain Shere Khan in The Jungle Book (opens April 15), provides a voice in Pixars Finding Dory (opens June 17) and plays the villain in Star Trek Beyond (opens July 22).

This is the first time it has been performed in Southwest Florida. Exceptional for its musical richness and its grand scope, Bachs Saint Matthew Passion was first heard on Good Friday, 1727, in Leipzig, Germany. It was revived by Felix Mendelssohn in 1829, creating renewed interest in Bach that grew throughout the 19th century and still continues. For the Gulfshore Opera production, Canadian tenor Thomas Glenn will perform the narrator role of Matthew the Evangelist. The role of Jesus will be sung by bass-baritone Colin Ramsey. The FGCU Chamber Choir and the Gulfshore Opera Orchestra and Chorus are directed by Trent Brown of the Bower School of Music and the Arts at FGCU. The Fort Myers Symphonic Mastersingers Chamber Chorus will be led by artistic director Jeff Faux. Performing the Saint Matthew Passion will forever change the lives of the students in the chamber choir, Mr. Brown said. It will create an affinity for Bach that will stay with the singers forever. Im thrilled that Gulfshore Opera is bringing this work to Southwest Florida and involving community groups in collaboration. The Gulfshore Opera Orchestra is made up of professional musicians from three counties, including musicians who regularly perform with the Charlotte County Symphony, Southwest Florida Symphony and the Naples Philharmonic. Ms. Pearce said several section leaders have agreed to memorize their instrumental solos so they can move out front with the vocal soloists PASSIONFrom page 1

But sometimes the style is unfamiliar and even the use is a mystery. The most daring designers of the 1920s era were making Art Deco pieces with geometric designs, symmetry and a streamlined look. But some artists created their own styles and even used unique pieces of metal or other unusual materials. Oscar Bach (1884-1957) was born in Germany and studied painting and metalThis telephone stand set sold in Cincinnati in February 2015 for only $450. It is designed to stand out in most rooms.

Sandy Stilwell & Andie Vogt Trustees & Event Co-chairsTO ALL WHO WINED, DINED & GAVE GRACIOUSLY lic arts. He became artistic director of a firm winning awards for his designs. He used the signs of the zodiac, mythological figures, grapevines, masks, grotesque figures and other designs from the past. Jewels adorned some special-order boxes and book covers. In 1911, he moved to the United States to join his brother. They formed the Oscar B. Bach Studios and marked almost all of their work with that name. After Bach had an unfriendly split with a partner, not his brother, he was upset to learn the ex-partner continued to use his designs, selling the metal work with no name or a new name. This has caused confusion for todays collectors. But the quality and originality of Bachs work can be identified by experts. A strange iron table and chair in the manner of Bach sold at Cowans Auctions in Cincinnati in the winter of 2015. It has a marble top on an iron cabinet with enamel painted doors and extra tall, thin legs. The telephone stand or table is a furniture form that was in use from about 1915 to the 1960s. The piece is not marked, so it sold for only $450, much less than an authenticated work by Bach. Q: Im looking for information about an old icebox with the nameplate IceWay Approved Refrigerator with corkboard insulation, built especially for the ice industry. When was it made and what might it be worth? A: Ice-Way refrigerators were sold under the brand name Leonard and were made by the Grand Rapids Refrigerator Company. The company was founded by Charles H. Leonard in 1881 as the Leonard Refrigerator Company. At first it made wooden icebox cabinets. Electric refrigerators were made in 1918. Leonard Ice-Way refrigerators were made in several styles and sizes. They sell for about $100-$200. The metal iceboxes are not as expensive. Q: I have a heart-shaped dish our family tradition claims was used for very special ice cream sundaes at a soda fountain about 1930. I wonder if you know anything about its special use. Was it for special occasions? Was the dish given away or sold? A: The heart-shaped ice cream dish was used with a heart-shaped ice cream dipper made in 1925. The scoop of ice cream fit perfectly into the dish. Then the soda jerk finished off a special sundae with a flavored sauce, chocolate, marshmallow, fruit or a combination. The sundae might even have been topped with whipped cream, sprinkles or nuts. The signature of the inventor of the dipper, John Manos, was part of the design. New heart-shaped glass dishes sell for just a few dollars today. The 1925 dishes sold wholesale in a set of 24 dishes and a dipper for $8.28. In recent years, a single dish has auctioned for about $1,000. Tip: Scratches on leather may be partially hidden by polishing the leather with saddle soap.

Space is also still available on the May 10-14 art and culture tour of Philadelphia. The Morse Museum houses the most comprehensive collection of the works of Louis Comfort Tiffany found anywhere, a major collection of American art pottery and fine collections of late-19th and early20th century American paintings, graphics and the decorative arts. The Tiffany holdings range from a set of leaded-glass windows to jewelry, mosaics and furniture.

Bok Tower Gardens, a National Historic Landmark, contemplative garden and bird sanctuary designed by Frederick Law Olmsted Jr., consists of a 250-acre garden, the 205-foot tall Singing Tower with its carillon bells, Pine Ridge Trail, Pinewood Estate and a visitor center.

CELEBRITY EXTRARevenant star takes TV role BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: I have a serious crush on The Revenant co-star Tom Hardy. I heard hes coming to television. Is that true? Linda T., via emailA: Tom Hardy is set to star in the FX/BBC One eight-episode miniseries Taboo. The series was created and written by Steven Knight, and is based on a story co-written by Tom and his father, Chips Hardy. The story, set in 1813, centers on Toms character, an adventurer who returns to Britain from Africa, along with 14 stolen diamonds, to seek vengeance after the death of his father. Q: I grew up watching, and loving, the cartoon Voltron. My brother told me he heard it was being remade. Is that true? Cara O., Deerfield, Mich.A: Netflix which is by far my favorite way to watch TV and movies is developing an updated version of the popular 1980s classic cartoon, in conjunction with Dreamworks Animation, which premieres sometime later this year. The original series ran for only two seasons from September 1984 through November 1985. Q: I really enjoyed Foxs live presentation of Grease earlier this year. Are there any plans for another movie-musical adaptation? Eric P., Lancaster, Pa.A: ABC and Lionsgate are bringing us the live version of Dirty Dancing later this year, starring Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine) as Baby and relative newcomer Colt Prattes (best known for starring in Pinks music video for Try) as Johnny. This three-hour musical event also will star Debra Messing as Babys mother, Marjorie Houseman, and Nicole Scherzinger as Penny. As of this writing, the rest of the cast had not yet been revealed and/or cast. Q: One of my boyfriends favorite movies is Neighbors with Zac Efron and Seth Rogan. I told him that they are making a sequel, but he doesnt believe me. Can you settle this disagreement? Jennifer R., via emailA: You can tell your boyfriend that his girlfriend knows of what she speaks. May 20 is the premiere date for Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, in which Mac (Seth) and Kelly (Rose Byrne) have to deal with a sorority that moves in next door, where the hell-raising fraternity used to be. And, if its even possible, they prove to be more trouble than the fraternity was. So Mac enlists the help of former-enemy/ now-friend Teddy (Zac) to help him try to run off his new neighbors. Dave Franco returns as Pete and Lisa Kudrow as Carol Gladstone, the dean, with Chloe Grace Moretz and Kiersey Clemons leading the sorority brigade. LIONSGATEColt Prattes

While I was enjoying my Funky Buddha Last Snow Coconut & Coffee Porter, I was too immersed in the n utty brew to pay attention to my companions repeated requests for food. He ordered without me (at least hes a Brass Tap regular and knows whats good). When a large pile of glossy, tangerine-hued shrimp was placed before us like a challenge, I was rousted out of my malty torpor to meet it. Tangy, sweet and spicy, the shrimp were plump and crunchy in just the way a perfectly cooked crustacean should be. Down the hatch! One More Thing: The shrimp whet my appetite to make my own selection, so Mexican Chicken Flatbread was my last stand: goat cheese, tomatoes, Poblano sauce and cilantro on chewy, unleavened dough sounded like a simple concoction, but it was surprisingly complex and satisfying.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Dougs Seafood, 3411 Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs; 992-1902 The closest youre likely to come to a true Maine lobster roll in Southwest Florida is served at Dougs Seafood, a small market and caf founded by a lobstering family from Maine. Prepared food includes cold and warm lobster rolls; crab and shrimp rolls; lobster, shrimp or crab wraps; and fish tacos. A steam table holds trays of chowders, bisques and lobster macaroni and cheese. Order at the counter and they quickly deliver to tables. Sandwiches come on plain white plates with a bag of potato chips and a cup of standard-issue cole slaw. The lobster rolls are offered in two sizes, both of which are overstuffed with succulent, sweet shellfish without fillers or seasonings that might distract from the main attraction. When it comes to other seafood sandwiches, a little more pizzazz might be in order. The shrimp roll, for example, could be improved by a smattering of chopped fresh tarragon or a bit of diced celery; the spartan fish tacos would benefit from shredded lettuce or cabbage, fresh cilantro and a spoonful of salsa. Soft drinks only. Food: Atmosphere: Reviewed March 2015Fernandez the Bull Midtown, 3375 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 653-9097 Local lovers of Cuban food have twice as much to thank the Fernandez family for now that theres a second Fernandez the Bull to patronize. For 25-plus years, the first one has existed in various locations. Now a chic-looking sibling is operating on Pine Ridge Road with indoor and outdoor seating, a full bar and a terrific staff. Start with a wellchilled and minty guava mojito. Savor some beef empanadas (one dish of eight serves two or more) or crisp fried calamari and move on to an entre like the chicken with mojo and garlic sauce or shrimp and mussels in white wine and tomato sauce. Sides of moros (rice and black beans), fried yucca or fried plantains are all great choices. And dont skip dessert. We loved the guava mango mousse cheesecake. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2015Incas Kitchen, Pavilion Shopping Center, 8955 U.S. 41, Naples; 631-5954 The Peruvian food conjured up by chef/owner Rafael Rottiers is so good no one minded traveling to Golden Gate for it, but now hes opened a stylish North Naples establishment as well. The second Incas has an ambience similar to the original, with warm earth tones and Peruvian art. And the food is equally stellar. A Piscojito (made with Peruvian pisco liquor) goes well with any of the 11 varieties of ceviche and seven types of tiradito (a Peruvian-style sashimi). The Mar y Tierra was a luscious blend of octopus, shrimp, aji limon (a Peruvian pepper), spices, tiger milk, crab, potato and corn. Sushi rolls one with tuna pepper and sesame oil, the other built around barbecued tenderloin were delicious, too. Mancora sea bass with quinoa, scallops, mussels and clams tasted as good as it looked. A 10-ounce tenderloin with spicy red sauce and tricolored potatoes will satisfy any carnivore. For dessert, have whatever sweet features the caramel-flavored lucama fruit. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2014Trattoria Abruzzo, Pavilion Shopping Center, 835 Vanderbilt Beach Road, North Naples; 596-8010 The Laccetti family has developed a loyal following even though this popular dining spot sits well back from the street on the Vanderbilt Beach Road side of the Pavilion Shopping Center. Youll find some surprises on the menu, like the calamari Adriatico (squid sauted with artichoke hearts, kalamata olives and cherry tomatoes) and housemade agnolotti nonno Paolo (large tender half-moons of ravioli stuffed with Parmigiano and fontina cheese topped with porcini mushrooms and a hint of truffle oil), snapper Livornese (a good-sized fillet topped with kalamatas, capers and anchovies in a light marinara sauce) and pollo ortolona (an impressive plate of boneless chicken breast with shiitake mushrooms, herbs, garlic and demi-glace with grandreserve balsamic and a load of fresh arugula). We finished by sharing a lovely lemon tart just as a singer began serenading the crowd with Italian classics. Service was friendly, but the timing of courses needed polish. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed August 2014The Local, 5323 Airport-Pulling Road, Naples; 596-3276 This restaurants name aptly describes its mission: to serve as much farmand sea-to-table food as can be procured locally. Chef/owner Jeff Mitchell, a Culinary Institute of America alum, has developed a creative menu for an unfussy setting and a staff that is friendly and accommodating. The menu changes frequently, depending on what products are available. I recommend starting with the Pine Island clams in red curry whenver they are offered. The sauce is sweet and spicy, redolent of basil and studded with scallions (good enough to drink on its own). Pan-seared triggerfish was expertly cooked, enhanced by a mango and avocado salsa. Mustard-roasted allnatural Joyce Farms free-range chicken breast with mustard breadcrumbs, softboiled egg and pecorino sauce was an imaginative way to dress up poultry. From the side dish choices, we liked the blackened potatoes, the sweet potato cake and the roasted beets with shallots and sherry vinegar. For dessert, everything is homemade. Beer and wine served.

CUISINEPrestons delivers service and steaks the old-school wayIf you want to dine at Prestons you have to plan ahead. Way ahead. I called on Wednesday and asked for Saturday. Then I asked for a table for the following Saturday and was told I could have one but not a booth. Sold. I simply had to see what it was that makes people wax lyrical about this small, wellestablished steakhouse when there are so many in Naples from which to choose. We arrived promptly at 6 p.m., the first to park in the small lot at the corner of U.S. 41 and First Avenue South. We walked in just in time to watch the servers parade out of the kitchen, each carrying a large vase of white roses. All of a sudden, the player piano in the front hallway came alive. A server came over and checked our names off of the small reservation list and then led us to a cozy banquette near the kitchen. It afforded us a prime view of the six booths and one other banquette that shared the room. (Theres a second room of about the same size that we heard but didnt see.) The intimate dining room is painted charcoal gray with white trim. The nicely upholstered booths and banquettes are black. The servers wear black pants, white shirts and aprons and black ties. Getting the (black and white) picture? Other somewhat minimalist touches I noticed before and during my visit include the lack of a website and, as far as I can tell, any type of advertising. This is a place that thrives on the business of its regulars and the few outsiders who dont mind dropping $100 or more per person on dinner. The menu is straightforward. No leatherbound books to wrestle with here. Just a simple page with simple entries: Deviled eggs. Bone-in filet. Mac and cheese. What you see is what you get. The servers are well versed in the routine and happy to regale customers with a bit of Prestons lore. Our server, Jeff, told us the prime steaks are cooked on a charcoal fire and that the owner builds that fire at 6, 7 and 8 p.m., hence seatings are timed accordingly. The wine list is also a page long with a separate sheet for the by-the-glass selections but there are plenty of good choices, including the 2012 Ponzi pinot noir ($69) we ordered and which arrived lightly chilled. A soft, warm loaf of average bread showed up next. I didnt mind that it wasnt great, because when you are hungry and bread shows up, bad things can happen. With this loaf, we had a couple of bites and were content to sip our wine and await our appetizers, which appeared as soon as the fire had reached the appropriate temperature. The oak-grilled shrimp ($15.95) consisted of four large shrimp, beautifully grilled then nestled atop a bed of rice on a vibrant red plate. They were accompanied by a big wedge of lemon pierced with a sprig of fresh parsley and a small cup of soy-hoisinsesame seed dipping sauce. The sauce was good, but the shrimp were just fine with nothing but a spritz of lemon. I tried the one item that had a bit of explanation on it: French onion soup, courtesy of Lady Cheryl Gurner ($11.95). And who might this be? From our server I learned that Lady Cheryl is a customer in possession of an excellent recipe for this classic soup. She shared it with the owner and, hence, gained credit on the menu. The bowl arrived hot and full of fragrant broth filled with onions, bread and just enough cheese so that it was noticeable but you didnt have to tussle with it in the bowl. It was indeed a fine rendition. Entrees at Prestons are served in the traditional steak house way: devoid of vegetables. A steak comes with steak. Period. Same with the shrimp or the nightly special, wild Scottish salmon ($32.95). Like the shrimp before it, the salmon was beautifully grilled, the exterior lightly crusted, the interior moist and flavorful. It came with a small cup of creamy dill-caper sauce for dipping and another wedge of lemon with a parsley spear. Nothing showy here, but very nicely executed. A bone-in filet ($59.95) was equally well prepared, grilled to just a bit more than medium rare, still red near the bone. It was a thick piece of meat with rich flavor that needed no adornment beyond the grilling and perhaps an application of salt and pepper it had received in the kitchen. It was an excellent, juicy filet. We shared two sides: sweet potato mash ($10.95, a bowl of mashed sweets topped with crushed pecans) and fresh broccoli florets ($9.95, cooked to a bit more than al dente and lightly seasoned). Both vegetables paired well with our proteins and made for a satisfying meal. The chocolate and coconut cakes offered for dessert are made in house. We overheard a server tell our neighbors that the owners wife is responsible for them. The coconut cake ($9.95), a two-layer affair of ultra-light cake and sweet coconut-laden icing, was delicious and just right for sharing. Service was courtly and efficient right up until dessert when the 7 p.m. seating began to tax the staff a bit. It was the owner in his well-used apron who handed us the menu, our dessert and bill in a fairly no-nonsense manner. We knew it was time to move on. Given the price of a meal here, Id expect there to be more of an opportunity to linger over dessert and an after-dinner drink. That aside, dinner was lovely. Its clear that Prestons formula is working just fine.

Kalea Bays sales success continues as first high-rise reaches skyward Community clubhouse also under constructionThe construction sites are extremely busy at Kalea Bay, the high-rise community being developed by Soave Real Estate on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. The onsite sales center is also very active as potential buyers discover what the gated, resort-lifestyle, luxury highrise community has to offer. According to Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales & Marketing, sales have been phenomenal. With our recent sales activity, our total sales volume is approaching the $120 million mark, said Wilson. Sales in the first tower are nearing 70, which is well ahead of original projections. Wilson cites the fact the construction on the residential tower is well underway, with the eighth floor now visible from Vanderbilt Drive, as one of the reasons for the communitys sales success. Another major factor is that the communitys clubhouse is also under construction, she said. This is helping buyers see the value of purchasing now. According to Wilson, both the tower and clubhouse are slated to be completed in the summer of next year. Our first residents will be able to enjoy the clubhouse and all its amenities the minute they move in, she said. The 22-story tower, with 120 luxury residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. Six floor plans are available at Kalea Bay with prices currently starting at $1.3 million. Residences 1 and 6 are 4-bedroom/4bath plans with 3,755 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with three-bedrooms plus den and three-and-a-half baths have 3,835 total square feet while residences 3 and 4 are four-bedroom/four-bath plans with 3,921 total square feet. All residents of Kalea Bay will revel in gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence, 9 high ceilings and wood floors throughout. The custom kitchens feature Wolf and Subzero appliances, a natural gas range, Downsview cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island. The master bedroom has an oversized walk-in closet and the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. Additional features include floor-toceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features. Spectacular views are available to every single resident at Kalea Bay, said Wilson. With all our rooftop amenities, including our sky lounge, pool and open-air fitness center, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves that surround us and, of course, the beaches. Those beaches include, Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9. Construction of Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse began earlier this year and is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. Upon completion, it will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, an expansive pool deck, an open air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. Nearby will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts and 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse area, to a designated Gulf beach. Our clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of Kalea Bay, said Wilson. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the onsite sales center. It is located just north of Wiggins Pass just off Vanderbilt Drive at 13910 Old Coast Road in North Naples. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at KaleaBay.com.

With more than 1,300 lots still remaining to be developed we look forward to a great future, adds Bullock. The Isles of Collier Preserve is located just four miles east of downtown Naples. Based on customer feedback reflecting a desire for larger homes, Minto recently announced Stock Signature Homes as a builder at The Isles of Collier Preserve. Stock will offer home plans on 90-foot wide lots that are in keeping with the contemporary coastal style of the existing community. We selected Stock to build the larger luxury homes because the company shares Mintos commitment to integrity, quality and excellent customer service, notes Bullock. Another of Mintos newest communities is LakePark at Tradition in Port St. Lucie. After selling out in the TownPark neighborhood at Tradition, Minto developed LakePark based on customer feedback for an age-restricted 55-and-better Minto community in Tradition. Minto recently held a grand opening for six new furnished models and a new sales office. The LakePark community will feature 644 singlefamily homes and paired villas. Founded in 1955, Minto is a familyowned business that has grown over the last 60 years into one of North Americas leading builders, with more than 80,000 homes built. Additional Minto communities throughout Florida include TwinEagles in Naples, Harbour Isle in Bradenton, Sun City Center in Tampa Bay, Laureate Park at Lake Nona and Festival in Orlando, Artesia in Sunrise, and Villas By The Sea in Lauderdale-By-The-Sea.

Sienna Reserve hits 75% sold mark Prime homesites still remainJust three weeks after its models grand opening Sienna Reserve, the intimate enclave of 45 luxury custom single-family homes, being developed by Zuckerman Homes on Livingston Road, between Vanderbilt Beach Road and Immokalee Road, has hit the 75 percent sold mark. Our grand opening was an overwhelming success, said Andy Zuckerman, President of Zuckerman Homes. Since Friday, February 19, more than 800 people have visited our sales center and toured our models. According to Zuckerman, visitor comments have been extremely positive. After touring our models a number of visitors walked right into our sales center with checkbooks in hand and put down a deposit, he said. Our models, as well as the community itself, were exactly what these new homeowners were searching for. Despite the fact Sienna Reserve has hit the 75 percent sold mark, some of the best homesites in the gated community are still available. But, time is of the essence considering the high interest in the community and the rapid rate of sales, added Zuckerman. I would encourage anyone looking for a quality-built custom home, priced from the mid-$600s in this intimate community, to visit us today. Sienna Reserve may be 30 acres in size, but less than half of it is actually being developed. Buyers are also 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, stated Zuckerman. The fact that no two homes back up to each other is another reason people love Sienna Reserve. The communitys 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, the largest home offered at Sienna Reserve, 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. Every visitor loves the open floor plans whether theyre looking for a single-story or two-story home, Zuckerman said. 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. In addition to the completion of its three models, Sienna Reserve also recently completed its grand entrance. It includes a palmand flower-lined brick-paver 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. According to Zuckerman, Sienna Reserves North Naples location has been a major selling point. Sienna Reserve 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, 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 are also in close proximity to the community. But the closest attraction is actually right next door to Sienna Reserve and just a brief walk or drive away. North Collier Regional Park, located to our north, is one of the countys premier parks, stated Zuckerman. It features walking trails and boardwalks, fishing lakes, a fitness center complex, a world-class childrens museum and soccer and softball fields. This amazing park is an attraction every member of the family can enjoy. Sienna Reserves location isnt the communitys only major selling point, according to many purchasers. Its size is also playing a big role. Bigger is not always better, stated Zuckerman. 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. At Sienna Reserve, no two homes are exactly alike. Thats because Zuckerman Homes 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. Even those with their own plans can bring them to Sienna Reserve. The outstanding architects at Zuckerman Homes are happy to transform dreams into reality. The Sienna Reserve sales center and models are open Monday Saturday, 10 am to 5:30 pm, and Sunday, 11 am to 5:30 pm. For more information regarding Sienna Reserve, call (239) 643-4333 or visit SiennaReserve.com. Above: All three models at Sienna Reserve are located on homesites that offer views of the pristine nature preserve.

FrontDoor Communities selects designer for coach home model at Talis ParkFrontDoor Communities has selected Denver-based Lita Dirks & Co. to create the interior design of its Sienna coach home model now under construction in Talis Parks Corsica neighborhood. An enclave of 64 spacious residences, The Coach Homes at Corsica will include 16 south-facing two-story buildings with four residences per building. The Santa Barbara style buildings will be situated on Corsicas gently curving streetscape. The first two buildings are under construction and expected to be completed by the end of second quarter, 2016. Lita Dirks, CEO and Owner of Lita Dirks & Co., has created interior designs for developers and builders throughout the country for more than 30 years. Her professional affiliations include MIRM (Master in Residential Marketing); Design Committee, NSMC (National Sales & Marketing Council); IIDA (International Interior Design Association); and she is a Seniors Housing Marketing Specialist. Most recently, she was named as a Legend by the Home Builders Association of Metropolitan Denver. The Coach Homes at Corsica present two light-filled open concept floor plans. Each residence includes a private arrival courtyard and a private garage. The 2,532 square feet under air first floor Messina coach home residences are priced from $725,000. Visitors to the 3,382 square feet under air second floor Sienna residences will be greeted in a foyer with a 20-foot ceiling, a staircase, and a private elevator. The plan includes a loft space, a great room, dining area and wet bar, an island kitchen, three bedrooms, three-and-ahalf baths, and 527 square feet of covered lanai space. The Sienna coach homes are priced from $795,000. Dirks light and airy design will introduce a palette that embodies the sea and sky mingled with the warmth of sun and sand. She will blend soft shades of blue, spa-like greens, taupy grays and whites and combine them with warm taupe woods and elaborate textures. The predominant wall color will be a pale taupy gray. Wide plank hardwood flooring throughout the main living areas will be sandy gray driftwood. The dramatic impact will begin in the foyer with its soaring 20-foot ceiling. Along the two story wall, wood pilasters in the warm taupe tone will add dimensional contrast to the light walls. The same wood will be used as trim around the ceiling. On the elevator wall, a chiseled natural stone will add texture and extend to the open balcony above. The flooring will be soft gray 12 x 24 porcelain tile in a brick pattern. A warm wood buffet with a white stone top will provide the foundation for a metallic silver framed mirror above. A grand chandelier will enhance the scene.

The loft will provide a getaway for quiet conversation and relaxation. The lofts dark smoky gray built-in will feature straight lines, simple shelving, storage space, and a desk with two leather ottomans that can be stored beneath. Two easy chairs in a soft woven silver gray fabric will be paired with a circular white-gray coffee table and anchored by a textured gray rug. From the loft, an angled hallway will showcase a high elliptic ceiling finished in wood and dotted with pin lights. The look will create a fascinating transition to the living areas The hallway will open to the island kitchen where Dirks plan calls for charcoal gray cabinetry and white quartz countertops. Four barstools at the island will be upholstered in soft gray. The perimeter cabinetry will extend to the ceiling with the top layer being 15-inches tall with backlit opaque glass fronts. The counter material will be continued as a backsplash. The living room and dining room will both display a double tray ceiling adorned with wood beams stained to match the floor. Sliding glass doors from both areas will allow an easy transition to the outdoor living area. A rectangular oak dining table with a walnut inlay will be arranged with six walnut side chairs and two skirted hosthostess chairs. A wet bar will feature cabinetry similar to the kitchen, but with a counter of sparkly gray-taupe and three barstools upholstered in cream leather. The living rooms feature wall will include a television above a floating graytaupe built-in console set against a backdrop of the natural stone introduced in the foyer. Furnishings will include a sectional sofa in a white textured fabric and a side chair in a silver and white textured fabric with nail head trim. A circular driftwood coffee table will display an antique mirror top. Accent tables will add character. In the owners bedroom, the palette will include whites, grays, silver, and sky blues. A bed with a three-piece low profile headboard upholstered in white linen will be flanked by nightstands in a textured smoky gray with a matching dresser. White slipper chairs and a pebbled ottoman will complete the scene. Sliding glass doors will open to a private lanai with a seating grouping and chaise.

Club initiatives enhancing lifestyle for Seaglass residents Construction starts April 4With $85 million in sales already processed, The Ronto Group is poised to begin construction of its 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass high-rise tower within Bonita Bay on April 4. With various membership opportunities, Seaglass residents will enjoy an award-winning lifestyle that is the result of initiatives undertaken by the Bonita Bay Club. After the purchase of the Club from the Bonita Bay Group in April, 2010, a new executive management team started a planning process for Vision 2013, a project focused on enhancing the clubhouse and the communitys extensive golf operations. The goal was to offer more in the clubhouse without making it larger and to improve efficiencies within the golf pro shop. Recognizing the golf pro shop had the best views at the clubhouse, it was transformed into the 55th Hole, an approximately 3,500 square feet high-end casual bar. The design created a captivating indoor/ outdoor venue. Nano doors open the inside to covered and open outdoor spaces and a patio with the largest fire pit in Florida. Inside, the design affords views of a minimum of three televisions from every seat. Eight 60-inch television screens area incorporated into a structure suspended over a square Cheers-style bar in the center of the room. A 127-inch media wall with 18 LED panels can function as one screen or as four. The 55th Hole quickly became a favored place. Ninety-seven percent of the members visited the venue last year. To better serve a golf operation that accommodates 12,000 rounds annually, a two-story, 15,000 square-feet golf pro shop was built adjacent to the clubhouse. The facility includes underground storage for 260 carts and storage for 2,600 golf bags. Director of Golf E.J. McDonnell, PGA oversees a staff that includes 25 PGA Professionals. Ten of the PGA Professionals and seven Fitness Professionals are Titleist Performance Institute Certified, creating one of the largest programs in the country. An extensive instructional program includes private and group lessons, golf schools, and clinics on three dedicated practice areas. Members have access to the latest equipment and professional club-fitting services. The entire kitchen and dining areas in the clubhouse were redone. An enormous and highly unique buffet that is the only one of its kind was incorporated in the dining space. Areas with solid surface cooling tops, a cooking area in the center of the nearly 40-feet long buffet station, and subsurface mounted heating elements that allow sternos free warming of chaffing dishes are included in the design. As Vision 2013 unfolded, the Club embarked on a new initiative. Vision 2015 is focused on the communitys sports areas and targeted improvements to the fitness and spa operations. There was a desire to replace a 10,000 square feet fitness and spa facility adjacent to the tennis complex. In January of 2014, the Club purchased a three-story building in the Promenade adjacent to Bonita Bay. The building has been transformed into a 60,000 square foot Lifestyle Center that includes a nearly 20,000 square foot Fitness Center and WAVE Caf, and a 9,000 square foot spa and salon. The Lifestyle Center contributed to Bonita Bay being recognized as one of the ten healthiest clubs in America by Prevo Health Solutions. The Americas Healthiest Clubs award is conveyed to clubs focused on the cultivation of a healthy environment and lifestyle. The first-floor lobby of the Lifestyle Center features a soaring two-story atrium. Visitors are greeted by a Concierge. The spa, full service salon, and a multipurpose room are located on the first floor. Accessed by an elevator or a floating staircase with glass side rails, the second floor is dedicated to the Fitness Center and WAVE Caf. The Fitness Center is the premier Technogym facility in the United States. The Italian made, Technogym equipment includes cardiovascular, strength, functional fitness, and kinesis machines. The Technogym functional fitness equipment works on a 360-degree range of motion platform rather than a dedicated linear range of motion. In addition to the spaces for the cardiovascular, strength, functional fitness, and kinesis machines, the Fitness Center includes dedicated rooms for group fitness, spin, Pilates, and Gyrotonics, as well as a golf training studio. With more than 750 members who play tennis regularly, the Club set out to enhance its tennis facilities. A rearrangement and slight expansion of the 18-court tennis complex was completed in December and included the addition of a large exhibition court and two oversized courts. In 2016, the 10,000 square feet building that formerly housed the fitness center and spa will be transformed into a tennis clubhouse with casual dining and an indoor/outdoor bar. The space will include a tennis pro shop, locker rooms, a stretching room, multifunction rooms, and a lobby area. Nano doors will open the space to the outdoors and the new exhibition court. In summer 2017, the Club will begin work on an aquatic center contiguous with the tennis clubhouse. The tennis clubhouse bar area will extend onto the pool deck. The aquatic center design is in process. The intention is to create a visually stunning, functional area that is as comfortable on the front page of Architectural Digest as it would be on the cover of Club and Resort Business magazine. Dedicated areas for both children and adults will be included. The Club envisions the aquatic center holding a level of appeal that will make it ideal not only for day-to-day recreation, but also for events. The Seaglass Sales Center at 26951 Country Club Drive within Bonita Bay is open daily. Visit Seaglass online at www.seaglassatbonitabay.com. Above: With various membership opportunities, the world-class amenities of the Bonita Bay Club will be available to residents of the Seaglass at Bonita Bay luxury high-rise tower to be built by The Ronto Group within Bonita Bay. Ronto will begin construction April 4. Bonita Bays legendary golf experience includes three on-property golf courses and two additional courses at the nearby Bonita Bay East on Immokalee Road. A 9,000 square feet spa, full service salon, and a multi-purpose room are located on the Lifestyle Centers first floor. ay D24 GULF COAST HOMES WEEK OF MARCH 10-16, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY

BY LINDA DONNELLYSpecial to Florida WeeklyQ: What is the one thing you want people to know about the Bay Design Store that most dont know already? A: The one thing I want people to know is that every visit to the store provides a completely different creative experience, bringing the freshest new ideas, styles and design concepts each time. Not at all like the big-box stores, we are constantly changing our collection from the color schemes, furniture selections and art, to the lighting and accessories. We are actively researching new products and design concepts and engaging in lots of discussion with our designers, buying on a daily basis. Q: Tell us about the Bay Design Store team. Is there one particular type of design service you provide or multiple services? A: Well, we are very much design inspiration-driven at the store, so our services begin as simply as answering questions and problem-solving for our guests as they browse. We provide complete design services as well whether its an existing room or designing a newly constructed home. We also offer an Instant Design program where we can furnish a room or home almost instantly! Customers come in and ask our team for assistance, and no project is too big or too small. Q: How does the store have such an eclectic look, and how do you curate these vignettes? A: Curating is a good term to use for our merchandising. We have a large warehouse filled with a collection we have chosen at various shows and markets, along with some pieces I have designed myself. Every day we select items directly from our stock books, designed to alter and improve the plan of each room or to replace sold items. These pieces are all delivered to the store and creatively arranged based on color, style and scale with our existing collections. It is as time-consuming and labor-intensive as it is challenging and rewarding. But at the end of the day, I think it is also what keeps us relevant and connected to our clientele. It brings the clients great enjoyment and pleasure to see whats new and exciting every time they enter the store. Q: What makes Bay Design Store unique from other furniture stores in Naples? A: We view our store as a unique experience, not just another furniture store, because each vignette carries a SUSANBAYDESIGNER Q&A approaches merchandising as curating at her Bay Design Store in s q g p it n a c in o i a c o w FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com MARCH 2016 LUXE LIVING 3Shades of blue team up in a mixture of furniture styles and textures.SEE BAY, 4 GIOVANNI PHOTOGRAPHY xperience the Exp of a Fin e Bhardong Downing Stone by Tamarian Rugs

MAKEOVER 8 LUXE LIVING MARCH 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com FLORIDA WEEKLY BY LINDA DONNELLYSpecial to Florida WeeklyA compelling remodeling project starts with a great house and creative people with vision. Designers, architects and homeowners often look at older homes and consider the potential. Should we buy it? Does it have good bones? What should we keep, and what should be removed? This is how it starts, and the end result is often spectacular in its transformation of a tired, decades-old structure. When this couple bought their dream home, there was one thing missing: a fresh, updated style. They had always appreciated traditional design, but found the existing architectural and interior details of this purchase to be somewhat ornate and fussy. Giving this two-story, 9,000-square-foot residence a makeover was accomplished by collaborating with a designer the homeowners already knew and trusted. In fact, even before they made the purchase, they brought Lusia Lou Shafran and her team at Pacifica Interior Design to the home to make sure they could transform it the way they wanted. When Ms. Shafran first walked the property with the couple, she knew this was no small task. The original carpentry finishes were heavy, the flooring and background selections too Mediterranean, and the architectural details quite busy. The home needed an inspiring update. The clients werent exactly sure what they wanted, but they knew they needed Pacifica. The kitchen was an angular space with very little cabinetry and close to no functionality. The couple told Ms. Shafran that they like to cook and prep together, so she and her team designed a real cooks kitchen, and an added bonus of two facing sinks allows them to prep meals together. New tongue-and-groove detailing replaced the previous popcorn ceiling. A new pantry, better refrigeration, a customdesigned hood and straighter lines freshened the space completely. The master bathroom was reversed in that every feature that was on one side of the space was flipped to the other. Again, functionality was at the core of this decision. The dining room showcases new, finer woodworking details, and a stunning, custom, 84-inch dining table that can seat 10 to 12 comfortably. The living room features a new Andersen window package and beautifully crafted wood sliding doors and custom hidden-track draperies for a more contemporary twist on the floor-to-ceiling treatment. Combining talents with John Cooney of Stofft Cooney Architects and Mike Diamond of Diamond Custom Homes, the makeover team made mostly decorative and surface changes in other rooms. There were no major structural differences, but the impact of the new blue-and-white themed, Ralph Lauren-inspired dcor elements, the completely redecorated rooms, and the simplifying of the architectural and construction Old structure, new lookA little updating gives a spectacular view a residence to match BeforeSEE NEW LOOK, 10 ACCESSORIES & BOTANICALS LIGHTING FURNITURE UPHOLSTERED FURNITURE MIRRORS & WALL ARTFINE FURNITURE.

The rejuvenating effect of being near the sand and water is unparalleled, and the sound of the water lapping onto the shore is calming and invigorating. Next, its back home to enjoy the morning paper and coffee on the expansive outdoor lanai, private yet open, with a beautiful blue-glass tile pool, spa and spillover water feature enveloped by the landscape design of renowned Christian Andrea of Architectural Land Design. The afternoon might be filled with lunch and shopping at Naples finest local haunts, literally one block away from home. Janes Cafe, Sea Salt, or Tommy Bahama and J. McLaughlin, Marissa Collection, or Elevee perhaps. A fun crowd of relaxed Neapolitans are out and about enjoying the Naples weather and lifestyle, too. Warm, but with a slight breeze, the palm trees and lush planting boxes and baskets line the walkways with sweetsmelling, colorful flower beds of hibiscus, oleander and begonias, expertly designed and maintained by horticulturist Jim Bixler.

Its only a short stroll back home to change and regroup before some friends pop over for cocktails and hors doeuvres out by the see-through linear fireplace with split-face marble wrapping around all sides. This is a social home, an open floor plan meant for entertaining. While in the gourmet kitchen and wet bar, both designed by Chris Hylemon and Amanda Geary, you can look out over the expansive oak floors by Legno Bastone Wide Plank Flooring to see the main living areas all at one glance. The chic, opulent backgrounds selected by Karen Larson of Dreamhouses of Old Naples and the dynamic black-and-white furnishing plan, designed by both Karen and Katie Frank of St. Tropez Home, give this luxe cottagestyle home a comfort and elegance. Designed by MHK Architecture & Planning, this innovative floor plan is housed within a classic Old Florida exterior. A two-story home with five bedrooms and five baths, the vaulted ceilings and skylights give it a height and openness that even larger floor plans cant achieve. Then its time for a walk back into town, which is now transformed into a hip, lively evening atmosphere of bustling restaurants and bars. Families stroll with children getting ice cream, couples hold hands and head into outdoor bar courtyards, and diners are treated to some of the finest menus in Naples. This is why we live here this lifestyle, this weather, this town. bhTdh

BY KELLY MERRITTSpecial to Florida WeeklyFor David Fruscione, having his own store was a dream. He spent a long time pondering the idea of his own place where he could showcase design finery. After almost two decades working as an interior designer for major retail brands including Banana Republic, White House | Black Market, Soma and Chicos, his dream came true in Republic of Decor. Its something Ive wanted to do for years and years and years, so to make this fantasy a reality is wonderful, he says of opening the store that gave him a crash course in doing business in Naples. It took more than a year to find the location and sign the lease and there are a lot of ups and downs in real estate here, but I love where I am. He isnt alone. Republic of Decor is located in the building everyone is talking about on First Avenue North. It is one of precious few contemporary buildings in Naples, a structure that begs entry and fascination. The burgeoning Design District and the surrounding area is a destination for trendsetters like Mr. Fruscione. His store is a welcome addition in a town where many stores still proudly proclaim painted porcelain monkeys and white wicker chaises as all the rage. Because his 1,500-square-foot space is brimming with stylish home furnishings and gifts, this hip habitat feels right at home. The building itself is modern and it feels urban, but I wanted it to feel like a chic loft with warmer materials, draperies and wood floors from Europe, he says. It feels like you could live in it, which makes for a nice tension between the modern industrial look and the warm residential feel. In this, Mr. Fruscione has created an upscale store thats also approachable. The onslaught of new residences in the area means more customers, all of whom will need to decorate those digs. And because the Design District has such a unique vibe, Mr. Fruscione envisions it as a Naples native neighborhood where residents will cultivate shopping preferences and spend time. My main goal is to have things you cant find elsewhere in Naples but Im also really conscious of having a nice range of price points so there is a ton of stuff in the store under $100, he says of the decorative accessories and gift items. This is the eye candy: that last layer of things youd put in your home along with great artwork, mirrors, accent furniture, tables, lamps, tabletop stuff and serving pieces and barware. There are vintage glass table lamps with handmade finials, pillows and tabletop serving pieces so customers can customize. Smaller items include coffee table books, gourmet treats and chocolates, candles and picture frames. Poised to be the it place to stop on the way to a party or event where a hostess gift is a must, Republic of Decor is a product of its maker. Mr. Fruscione selects what he sells from vendors and artists whose work he respects and enjoys. There is a lot in my store that can be layered into coastal decor-heavy homes and I spend a lot of time hunting for unique pieces and I curate 50 different product lines, says the man who went to architecture school in San Francisco. People in Naples are thirsty for something fresh in a great gifting store that is fresh and on trend so they dont have to drive to Miami and Palm Beach. Mr. Fruscione is ready for Republic of Decor to be part of the Naples community. He purposely chose to come to Naples when he could have opened a business in San Francisco or New York, where his family still resides. I was very fortunate to discover this location and thats when I fell in love with the project, he says. I wanted to plant roots in Naples and give it a go here.

When Rue du Rix founder and principal Lynette Bard discovered her passion for interior design, it was after she already had a successful career as a fashion designer in New York City. Before that, she was an art teacher in Hong Kong. Its easy to see how this enterprising designing woman would have many experiences from which to draw inspiration. And as is the case with most designers who have traveled and lived abroad, her creative abilities are off the charts. Since 2007, when Ms. Bard established Rue du Rix, her local residential projects have turned heads. Q: Whats your favorite home design trend right now? A: After a period of very modernlooking design, especially midcentury modern, I see the pendulum swinging back toward a more traditional point of view. Not an overblown, full-on fussy traditional, but little touches of decor that show classical influence while maintaining a clean, fresh, modern aesthetic. Actually, the blending of the two is more interesting in the end. Q: What trend are you glad to see go by the wayside? A: Homes with every room painted gray. Gray can be a tough color to use as it has many subtleties between warm and cool casts. Cool grays do not mix well with the warm sunlight and tropical tones of Southwest Florida. Fortunately, simply white is the trend color for walls in 2016. Q: Do you have any rules? A: Here is the question that I ask my clients and myself: If someone visits the project in 10 years, are they going to be able to date it to 2016? Anything that is a more permanent feature flooring, kitchen cabinets and counters, tiles, plumbing fixtures and fireplaces should be timeless. You can have fun with trends with more replaceable elements paint colors, pillows and throws, lamps, accessories, rugs and wallpaper. Sofas and draperies fall somewhere in between, but both can be changed more easily than the built environment. Q: What are you reading? A: In addition to trade publications, I have subscriptions to most of the major shelter magazines, such as Architectural Digest and Elle Decor. I enjoy the contrasting points of view between Dwell and Traditional Home. Online magazine Lonny is also one of my favorites. Although the project costs are a far cry from the real world, watching HGTV is my guilty pleasure. Q: What advice do you have for a homeowner embarking on newhome construction? A: I really encourage potential clients to involve an interior designer sooner rather than later in a project. Our profession specializes in space planning and how people actually utilize and move around in their homes, so the sooner we are involved the better. It is so much easier to tweak things when a project consists of lines on a piece of paper rather than actual walls with wiring, plumbing, HVAC and finishes. Designers are, by nature, problem-solvers, and we strive to help people avoid costly mistakes. Q: Is there any aspect of interior design that you feel is of primary importance? A: Im a big believer in the concept of universal design, which means designing spaces so that they can be used by the widest range of people possible. Everyone passes through many stages of life from childhood to old age, and these can include times of illness or injury. Considering human diversity when building creates homes that will be easier for all people to use. Some examples of this are curbless showers, wider doorway openings, adequate lighting, lever handles instead of doorknobs and making sure that reinforcement for future grab bars is included inside walls, to name just a few. Q: What are some challenges you overcame in a particularly difficult project? A: There is no single cookie-cutter solution. Certain rooms do not have to be used for those purposes. Sometimes it takes some convincing to have clients take the plunge and ignore the label. An example was a couple with three children who lived in a typical center-hall Colonial. The family had meals in the eat-in kitchen and spent time in the family room, leaving the dining room and formal living room underutilized. We transformed the dining room into their TV/media room, which worked very well as it was next to the kitchen, and the formal living room became an office, which they desperately needed. Q: What inspires you? A: Art, cities and nature. I have had the good fortune to have lived and traveled all over the world and absolutely thrive on the fast pace of city life and the art and culture that it offers. On the other hand, I grew up in the countryside and always find nature and its restorative qualities to be the perfect balance to the urban. Lynette Bard Rue du Rix 599-7759; ruedurix.comLYNETTEBARD proves that when splendor and skills collide, magical things happen This friendly kitchen has seating for young grandchildren to hang out and a springtimeinspired color combination with a big farm table, a family piece and whimsical modern side chairs for contrast to more traditional elements.

Jewelry for the homeA new gallery of imported Italian precious stones is unveiled BY LINDA DONNELLYSpecial to Florida WeeklyTodays most sophisticated design and construction professionals are sourcing unique sought-after Italian precious stones for spectacular countertops, foyers, backsplashes, bathrooms and floors from United Materials new Galerie in Naples. The Antolini Precioustone Collection, currently on display at the new UMI Galerie, showcases these stone slabs that are handcrafted from Italy. No two slabs are alike, but colors are consistent from slab to slab within their vast offering of brilliant agates, bright quartz and colorful jaspers that can be transformed for use in your home. The process of how these slabs are originally created is fascinating. The Antolini organization in Italy sends experts to mines all over the world, and after careful selection, the stones are sent back to Italy, where they are cut and sliced, and thoughtfully hand-set by artisans in molds much like pieces in a puzzle. Any spaces or gaps left around the stones are filled in with more of the same crushed mineral and a very highquality, clear resin. The entire mold then goes through a vacuum resin reinforcement process to ensure the stones are completely adhered together. The last step is the polishing process, which results in highly mirrored-looking surfaces and velvety smooth-to-the-touch finishes. Donnie DiNorcia, president of UMI, often refers to this special collection as jewelry for your home. Mr. DiNorcia adds, Unlike granites and marbles, which come from quarries, many of these stones come from mines all around the world and represent some of the most stunning gems imaginable. And because the gemstones are nonporous their uses are almost endless! The Precioustone Collection slabs come in 3-centimeter (1-inch) and/or 2-centimeter (3/4-inch) thicknesses and can be purchased in full slabs (approximately 5-feet-by-9-feet) and jumbo slabs (10-feet-by-6-feet). There is a custom size program for anyone who does not necessarily need a full slab for their project. The Galerie in Naples has 22 Precioustone slabs on display, although the Antolini organization has over 100 minerals in its facility in Italy. If a client sees a color we dont have, we can order it, concludes Mr. DiNorcia. A grand opening industry event is planned for late March, but the Galerie is currently open by appointment by calling 593-6995. Its at 1661 Trade Center Way directly next to the main UMI showroom.

Stop by the Wilson Lighting Showroom soon!A Hint of Vintage.SINCE 1975Miromar Design Center presents Robert and Carole Leher, authors of the 252page coffee table book Naples Beach Homes: Cottages, Castles, and the Families That Built Them, at 11 a.m. Tuesday, March 15. The couple will share some of the stories they uncovered about the history of Naples most iconic beach homes. A reception and book signing hosted by MP Interiors will follow the presentation.The event is free and open to the public.Newcomers to the Naples area often wonder about the beachfront homes along Gulf Shore Boulevard and Gordon Drive that range from modest singlestory cottages built decades ago, to modern multi-story mansions towering high above the sand. Each one looks out over the beach to the sparkling Gulf of Mexico, and each property has a story to tell. Curious themselves, the Lehers spent three years talking with homeowners past and present and gathering their stories about living on the beach. Enhanced by the original artwork of Naples artist Paul Arsenault and highlighted with current and vintage photography, their book offers an overview of beachfront homes and homeowners whose legacies live on in the lore of Naples.Normally retailed for $65, the book will be offered for sale at the Miromar Design Center event for $50, with net proceeds going to the Naples Historical Society. Because seating is limited, reservations are required. Sign up at miromardesigncenter.com or call 390-8203 for more information.
