The Naples Zoo invites Neapolitans to stick their necks out to raise money to help protect and save the worlds giraffe population. The top three fundraisers will each get to bring a guest to breakfast with a zookeeper and the Zoos resident giraffes Bruehler, Jumanji, Zuri, Timber and Bolo. Together the five giraffes weigh 13,178 pounds, and thats the dollar amount Zoo officials hope the fundraising campaign can raise. All of the money will be donated to the Giraffe Conservation Foundation to further education and protection efforts pertaining to the plight of giraffes in Uganda and Namibia, where every day the lovely, longnecked animals face poachers rifles or get caught in snares. In just 15 years, their population has dropped by 40 percent, and today only 90,000 giraffes remain in the wild, according to the foundation. The Naples Zoo urges locals to get creative for the cause and do something like hold a yard sale for the good of the worlds giraffes. Or ask everyone at work to bring in something to contribute to an office auction or raffle. Fundraising guidelines and a form to fill out are available at Forms and funds must be turned in by Friday June 18.

The actual cost of substance misuse is staggering: According the National Institute on Drug Abuse, it costs our country about $484 billion a year in health-care expenditures, lost earnings and the costs of crime and accidents. While the dollar amount is high, the social toll is even higher when addiction involves intoxicated driving, child abuse and neglect and violence. This week we examine Collier County Drug Court, Drug Free Collier and the David Lawrence Center as public resources available to residents who want to protect their children, help themselves or help a loved one.

PARADE OF HOMES WINNER!FSPA MEMBER / CPC 1457280 COMMENTARYFamily relationsMore than a century ago in Douglas County, Kansas, there lived a man named Roger Williams. I never knew him, nor to my knowledge are we related. Mr. Williams was the postmaster of Lawrence, a town situated among hilly black oaks and the river-valley cottonwoods stretching some 60 miles west of the Missouri state line, cradle trees of both the Kansas and the Wakarusa rivers. Their waters flow eastward with many others, the blood of a continent, to become part of the mighty Mississippi and finally the Gulf of Mexico. So does the river of our actions join an ocean of history. For those waters we will always be responsible. In the same year Einstein introduced his theory of relativity and the New York Giants beat the Philadelphia As four games to one in the second World Series 1905 the Lawrence postmaster adopted a 5-year-old boy from the local orphanage, a kid named named Robert Burt Wilson. Since the Williams family lived on a 400-acre farm about seven or eight miles southwest of Lawrence, Burt would grow up to be a farmer one who maintained houses, outbuildings, fences, fields, cattle and crop rotations all in perfect order late into the 20th century. Burt Wilson was a Cherokee Indian. When I knew him, starting about 1972, he was old and cheerful and kind and tough, a square-jawed, dark-skinned man who always wore cowboy boots, clean jeans and a long-sleeved shirt buttoned to the neck under a big white Stetson. Mr. Wilson was missing a finger. He carried various scars on his head and face. And he could still pick up the back of a hay wagon, even with a few bales on it he was that powerful. When I introduced myself for the first time, he stared at me and then broke into laughter. It was my name, of course the same name as his fathers. I was 19, and Id dri ven my 1959 International pickup into his farmyard to knock on the door. Mr. Wilson had a corral near his big barn visible from the dirt road. It sported a compelling patch of that rich, dark soil, breadbasket soil, nourished by centuries or millennia of the rivers spring floods. And I had a feverish imagination. I could turn a half-acre or so into a productive vegetable garden and live off it, I figured. All I had to do was ask the farmer and get his permission to use it, in return for some work or produce. Since my grandmother and my parents had taught me to can food, I figured the rest was gravy. No doubt bored, Mr. Wilson agreed to my plan, with one standing order. No weeds. Whatever you grow, he told me, dont let me look out my kitchen window and see any weeds in it. And you have to use a hoe on the weeds, no chemicals. So we did, and not just me my girlfriend Eva joined me, too. She later became the mother of my oldest son, which just shows you that gardens can do a lot of good you dont expect even if you only want potatoes and tomatoes. Our eyes were bigger than our appetites, of course, so we grew a lot more than we could eat. Potatoes, onions, spinach and lettuce, squash, tomatoes, green beans and snap peas. Hundreds of pounds of produce. We spent many nights hoeing weeds on the eastern prairie when we could have been studying or partying. We loaded our old truck with food, drove into Lawrence, and passed it out to our friends. We went to the old-folks home and gave it away, as Mr. Wilson suggested. And of course he got his share after greeting us always with good cheer and a supper offer. Thats how we got to know him to know his deep kindness and compassion coupled with grit. And its how I came to realize were kin to people we dont know or even understand, but who happen to be our countrymen our employees or employers, our fellow voters, our classmates or neighbors or the drivers who share the road with us. Heres what all that means. It means you should try to pay your employees more, if youre the boss. It might make your life a little harder, but it will also make it a lot richer. It means you should work a little harder for your boss, more pay or not. It might be more difficult, but it will also make your life a lot richer. The day the United States entered World War I, Mr. Wilson climbed on his buckskin pony and rode 80 miles in less than 24 hours, he told me, posting notices on fences across eastern Kansas. He was 16 or 17, and when he was 80 he still had the hide of that horse in his attic, a creature hed loved forever because it had so much heart. He joined the Army the day before World War I ended on Nov. 11, 1918, riding out of Lawrence on a train with other young men, all of them sent home a couple of days later. He brought us into his life and shared everything that happened to him marriage and children and bad weather and the death of his beloved wife. And he told me this: If the United States ever entered another Great Depression, he could house and feed 80 to 100 people on his 400-acre farm. That was the farm he inherited from the postmaster of Lawrence, Kansas, Mr. Roger Williams. Ive shared this story because you will be part of my river, now. Our river, the river of Roger Williams and Burt Wilson and you. You the boss. You the worker. Were family relations. And I expect you to do something about it. o c i W h t roger

But the Cincinnati Zoo has been subjected to a torrent of abuse for making the agonizing decision to shoot and kill one of its gorillas, a 17-year-old silverback named Harambe, when a 4-yearold boy fell into his enclosure. Invariably, the adjective used to describe Harambe is magnificent, and rightly so. Gorillas are physically imposing and highly intelligent, with sophisticated social structures. In a better world, they probably wouldnt be confined for our viewing pleasure, but thats another issue. The question is what should the Cincinnati Zoo have done when forced to choose between the welfare of a prodigious animal and a small human? This wasnt a case of a hunter who went out of his way at great expense and trouble to shoot a lion, or a poacher who killed for tawdry profit. This was a serious, responsible institution confronted with a life-and-death crisis, in real time and not of its devising. When the little boy somehow crawled through the fencing and splashed into water with Harambe and yes, the boys mother should have been paying closer attention the childs life was potentially in danger. This was selfevident to the shocked and dismayed witnesses, who watched Harambe drag the kid around by the ankle like a proverbial rag doll. Everything that people lamenting the shooting say about Harambe may be true: He wanted to help. He didnt mean the child any harm. He was merely confused. None of this means he wasnt a danger. We desperately want to anthropomorphize apes, and make them out to be the gentle giants of our imagination. They are still wild beasts. Harambe was a forbiddingly strong 420-pound creature with no experience baby-sitting. He could seriously hurt a child without even trying. Once that is acknowledged, its clear that the zoo had no good choices. Its critics including celebrities who are suddenly amateur primatologists have insisted there must have been a way to create a happy ending for all. The zoo could have reasoned with Harambe. But zoo officials called the gorillas out of the enclosure; the two females complied, Harambe did not. They could have tranquilized Harambe. But this would have agitated him more, and the tranquilizers would have taken time to work. They could have, as one expert mused, shot the gorilla in the shoulder. Because theres nothing like a badly wounded gorilla in possession of a child. G.K. Chesterton wrote of the healthy and unhealthy love of animals, with the latter characterized by its over-seriousness. He was quite prepared to love a rhinoceros (with reasonable precautions), but couldnt give himself over to what he called animal worship. He believed that wherever there is Animal Worship there is Human Sacrifice. That is, both symbolically and literally, a real truth of historical experience. In this case, the would-be human sacrifice wasnt an abstraction. He was a 4-year-old boy. The Cincinnati Zoo, to its credit, wasnt willing to discount his welfare. It sacrificed the beast to protect the child. In a less sentimental age, the moral calculus would be obvious. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINIONDead in the waterThey are at it again. You know who I mean: They are The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. And we know what the Corps is doing: dumping billions of gallons of polluted water from Lake Okeechobee into the St. Lucie River on the east and the Caloosahatchee River on the west. The dumping affects prime estuaries on both coasts, a force feeding of toxic bilge. It has monstrous consequences. As the lakes effluent is flushed, it taints all it touches, leaving behind rivers, lagoons and oceans of environmental ruin. The casualties are many. It is the equivalent of a dirty, toxic aqua bomb. It results in millions of fish killed. It annihilates all forms of aquatic life. It sucks the breath out of sea grass, erasing it completely from many acres of underwater pastures, the grass dead before it knows it is dying. Algae blooms spread like thick, noxious lava across clear waters, suffocating everything that falls beneath their pall. People who dont know the enemy ingest it while swimming and fishing in and around the water it invades. It sickens them. If it isnt clear to you by now, this is destruction on a massive scale, precipitated by multiple acts of environmental homicide. It is committed by serial offenders. The complicity of their guilt in this crime is widely acknowledged but its perpetrators suffer no penalty for their crimes. As this is being written, the Corps is releasing 1.2 billion gallons of freshwater daily from the lake into the St. Lucie River. A toxic algae bloom in the lake is in the queue, a poisonous arrow aimed at the heart of estuaries on the verge of collapse. There is plenty of blame to go around. But why, you may ask, has it come to this? Ask the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The agency is charged with lowering the lakes depth to rid it of excess water. I am not a scientist but central Florida lies between Lake Okeechobee and Orlando. When it rains there, water does the obvious: it goes downhill. The runoff flows south, eventually into the lake. Sometimes they get a frog-strangler of epic proportions in that part of the state. Or maybe there is a hurricane. Thats trouble. Before you know it, youve got the equivalents of the Colorado River raging toward home. When the deluge arrives, the level of the lake rises a lot. The fear factor kicks in. There is a mud dike first built about century ago (and now being hardened by the Corps) that holds the water back at the south end of the lake. That is good as far as it goes, which is not far at all. The Corps keeps its fingers crossed, and hedges its bets by pumping off and dumping water from the lake as fast as it can. The agency uses a yard stick and a finger in the air to decide just when the time is right to do the deed. When the lake levels reach high levels like it is now, and storms threaten, the water releases begin, the margin of safety achieved at the cost of committing ecological mayhem. The vulnerability is genuine for the communities south of the lakes rim; and the Corps knows what can happen if they dont get it right. Theres a chance theyll get it wrong anyway. Back in the 0s, the lake was pounded by high winds from two separate hurricanes, each storm driving flood water over the earthen dike in a massive storm surge that killed thousands. Not to be caught flat-footed again, the state Legislature created a new state agency, the Okeechobee Flood Control District, to work with the Army Corps to prevent future disasters. Corps engineers designed a system of flood control and then they built it. It included a network of channels, gates and levees that connected drainage canals from the lake to the east and to the west, toward Stuart and Fort Myers, respectively. The Corps modus operandi is to reduce the lakes levels fast enough that rising waters wont threaten the dike. If the dike suffered a catastrophic failure, polo ponies in Wellington would be up to their withers in flooding, and south of the lake, communities devastated and many lives lost if such a tragedy occurred. The dumping from Lake Okeechobee began 87 years ago. It continues as though we have learned nothing. But we have. The solutions are known and within our reach if we but had the political will to enact them. They include protecting and improving water quality, providing for water storage needs and restoring the historic flow of water from Lake Okeechobee to the Everglades. If it werent so simple, it wouldnt be so hard. Special interests have had a free ride for a long time at South Floridas expense. It is time to collect the bill and dump the lawmakers responsible. Unless we do, the Everglades and our rivers, lagoons and estuaries are dead in the water. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 9-15, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY A commitment to get clean can land an addict in Collier County Drug CourtNCE ADDICTION LANDS SOMEONE in the legal system, consequences can follow hard and fast. Thats where Collier County Drug Court, one of 1,500 in the country that serve adults, comes in: With a referral from a judge, probation officer, clergy, family member or even themselves, adult defendants are screened by an addiction specialist to see if they meet program requirements. Once accepted, they sign a contract agreeing to adhere to a specialized recovery program that could result in a reduction or dismissal of charges. Were in the business of helping people find recovery, explains Judge Janeice Martin of the 20th Judicial Circuit, who presides over Collier County Drug Court. The nice carrot at the end is that they can reduce the long-lasting legal consequences of when they were in active addiction. The most common charge among participants is possession of a controlled substance, but many face legal consequences stemming from all manner of theft charges (like burglary or grand larceny), driving with a suspended or revoked license or probation violations. The drug court program lasts a minimum of 12 months, throughout which defendants work with a team of advisors including their probation officers, attorneys and clinicians. After developing an individualized treatment plan that requires defendants to be occupied full-time as employees or students, the team requires regular check-ins to monitor compliance with the program. Community partners Project HELP, The Shelter for Abused Women & Children or St. Matthews House, for example might be drafted if advisors determine the defendant has parallel troubles such as sexual abuse or emotional trauma that could undermine recovery. If they have been identified as a candidate and theyve expressed a commitment to get clean and find recovery, we pull them off the prisonbound track and put them back in community, Judge Martin says. We offer intense treatment and supervision. And over the course of a few years, we assist them with reintegrating with their families and finding employment, all the while maintaining their recovery. Allowing defendants to remain in the community has a broader benefit because the consequences of jailing them are mitigated and ultimately remedied if they successfully complete the program: Their families dont lose household contributors, and the defendants contribute to the local economy. Judge Martin explains that $1 spent on drug court equals a $3 economic benefit to the community because the defendant is not occupying a prison bed and is likely helping provide for his or her own family. Soft benefits float around the $27 range, she adds, because the defendant is paying taxes and increasing the productivity of local businesses. Its a no-brainer. But, she cautions, Ill be quick to say that not everybody gets it on their first try. A good number do, however, which makes drug court absolutely essential as one of our communitys criminal justice tools. Defendants are responsible for costs the program incurs on their behalf, as well as for legal and court fees. Participants must certify they can meet the programs financial obligations; employment assistance and sliding fee scales ensure that most can pay their way.The hardest of the hardOver time, Collier County Drug Court has evolved to appropriate the most difficult cases of addiction because those defendants are typically the most motivated. In the past, Judge Martin says, the state attorneys office favored first-time, non-violent offenders as candidates for drug court, only to find that people who hadnt hit bottom often werent ready to undertake recovery. Its sometimes harder to get through to folks who dont have as serious a legal situation, she says. Instead, the attorneys office changed course and the local drug court team started taking on the hardest of the hard, who have proven to be great ambassadors for recovery and redemption. Weve had a handful where it was nothing short of a miracle that the person was granted the opportunity to do drug court and they took that opportunity for all it was worth, she says. They were ready for change and saw it for the priceless opportunity it is.You get your life backNichole Steele completed the program three years ago and credits drug court for her recovery. Charged with dealing in stolen property to support her heroin and crack addiction, Ms. Steele faced a year in prison. The experience of sitting in jail, waiting to hear if she qualified for the program, was tortuous, and she was elated to learn she had been admitted. Not that the 15 months she spent in the program were easy, however. Without a home or a car to call her own, she relied on sober living houses, St. Matthews House and The Shelter for Abused Women & Children. People dont really understand what it takes, but we got it done, she says. I was on the bus four times a day going back and forth. It was crazy. When she admitted to relapsing twice her advisors reconfigured her program to build in more accountability. If advisors feel the program is not resonating, a participant can be dismissed from the program to face the legal consequences of the initial charge. Ive seen people kicked out of the program for missing a drug test, Ms. Steele says. Thats why she freely confessed to her relapses and agreed to live at St. Matthews House, which has its own requirements including chores, a curfew and nominal rent.It was super intense for awhile, she says. My life revolved around drug court and St. Matts. I had no room for anything else.But she credits the programs structure and its emphasis on honesty with allowing her to rebuild her life. By the time she finished the program, she had her young son back in her care, a job and an apartment. Today she owns a home and a nice car, has two jobs in the design field as she had hoped when she was a teenager and has another baby who is thriving. Thats what happens, she says. You get your life back and slowly but surely you build it up. I owe it all to drug court.

Drug Free Collier works hard to prevent kids from starting drugs in the first place. By providing extensive resources to schools and the larger community, the organization takes aim at childhood drug and alcohol use with literature, parenting classes, forums, school clubs and more. Our goal is to let other youth know that there are kids who dont use, Executive Director Melanie Black explains. We want to empower (non-user) youth to come forward and say they are just as happy and have just as much fun. Much of Drug Free Colliers efforts go into teaching parents how to talk to their children about their expectations and how to create a plan of action should kids find themselves in a compromising position. It shouldnt be a one-time conversation, Ms. Black stresses. The topic should continue throughout elementary, middle and high school Addressing the issue is much better than a child dying because they decided to drive drunk. Drug Free Collier has worked with Collier County Public Schools for years to develop bi-annual studies about students and drug use. The most recent, the 2014 Collier County Drug Indicator Report, led to the formation of CORE Society student groups in all secondary schools to promote abstinence from drugs and alcohol.

This is slightly less than the state average which is 20.5 percent. In 2013, more than 100 calls were made to Poison Control in Collier County due to youth exposure to household medications. In, 2013 more than 2,284 youth received services from the Dave Lawrence Center in 2013.

This is at least 15 babies out of 1,000 births are born addicted to prescription drugs. According to the Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey, 14 percent of high school youth state they have used synthetic marijuana in their lifetime. t t t t t t t t t t t t t t t m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m id id id id id id id id id id d id id id d d d id d d dl dl dl dl dl dl dl dl dl dl dl dl d dl d d dl d d d e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e e an an an an an an an an an an an an an an a an n a an d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d d hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi hi h h hi hi hi h h gh gh gh gh gh gh h gh gh gh gh gh gh gh gh gh gh g h h gh h h g g i i i i i i i i i i ti ti i ti ti ti t SOURCE: 2014 SUBSTANCE ABUSE INDICATOR REPORT COLLIER COUNT Y BLACK MARTIN BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@


NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 9-15, 2016 NEWS A9 In collaboration with the Collier County Sheriffs Office and the Naples and Marco Island police departments, Drug Free Collier encourages residents to bring unused or expired prescriptions, controlled substances and overthe-counter medication (no needles or other sharps, please) to the following drop-off sites.

Theres a lot of expectation that the norm out there is to use drugs or alcohol. Drug Free Collier works hard to counter that, she says, adding, CORE Society groups are making a huge difference.Knowing what to look forOne of the more popular initiatives Drug Free Collier offers parents is a traveling exhibit called Hidden in Plain Sight, which uses a trailer set up to mirror a typical teenagers bedroom as a way to teach parents how to find evidence of drug use. After taking a look around the mock bedroom, parents hear from a police officer about different items that can point to drug use. Then, armed with their new knowledge, they go through the room a second time to discover various items of drug paraphernalia that had been there all along. Most of the stuff we have (planted in the room) has been confiscated from kids or can be purchased right here in our community, Ms. Black says. The Hidden in Plain Sight exhibit is scheduled to be at The Shelter for Abused Women & Children for the public to tour from 5-6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14. It can also be scheduled for private events through Drug Free Collier. Ms. Black says about 140 people participated in the most recent public tour in May.The prescription problemPrescription pill abuse by teenagers that morphs into a heroin addiction as they enter adulthood is a growing concern across the country. In 2014, 61 percent of overdose deaths in the country were linked to opioid drugs, totaling more than 27,000 of 47,000 fatalities. Like the rest of the country, Collier County is consumed with an addiction epidemic centered on opiate painkillers, which are the easiest high that kids can access. In its 2014 Collier County Substance Abuse Indicator Report, Drug Free Collier found that almost 20 percent of middle and high school students had ingested prescription pills for the purpose of getting high in 2012. Ms. Black considers pills just as dangerous as guns. Would you leave a gun sitting out readily available to your child? she asks. If youre leaving your Oxycontin sitting out, youre leaving a fully loaded gun out for someone to abuse or potentially die from. Also of concern are synthetic drugs, namely herbal mixes branded as potpourri or incense, which have entered the local market through convenience stores. With names like What The Doctor Ordered or Scooby Snack, theyre positioned on the shelves next to subtly disguised pipes and rolling papers. People smoke them as a legal substitute for marijuana, much to their detriment because they are often laced with substances including acetone or bug repellant that can cause a host of serious medical conditions, including psychosis. The synthetics kind of hit us by surprise because they are so accessible, Ms. Black says. Weve had to change our messaging (because now) its not just illegal drugs we have to be concerned about. It can be packaged as harmless, when its actually more dangerous than weed. Thanks to community partners including the Collier County Sheriffs Office, Drug Free Collier successfully petitioned the Collier County Commission in 2013 to ban the sale of legal marijuana. According to the CCSO, deputies have faced no resistance to the ban to date and often perform spotchecks if they receive a tip or intelligence that an establishment carries it. Another part of Drug Free Colliers education efforts focuses on teaching parents and school officials about the appearance and effects of new substances that arrive in Collier County, such as the amphetamine flakka or hallucinogenic 25i. These and other designer drugs can cause wide array of adverse side effects, from paranoia to brain damage. Some, like bath salts, can appear in a variety of forms (powder, capsules or tablets, for example), whereas legal marijuana of the kind frequently found in convenience stores resembles an herbal mixture.

(DLC also administers the Collier County Drug Court program.) Up to 70 percent of active addicts have concurring mental health disorders, says Executive Director Scott Burgess, and the center is uniquely positioned to address them. A lot of times, theres an underlying mental health issue that springboards into a substance abuse problem, Mr. Burgess says. What we really focus on is having integrated programming. We evaluate people in our assessment process for mental health as well as addiction. With 44 programs at hand to offer people who want to escape the grip of addiction, clinicians start with an initial assessment to create a treatment plan that might include a stay in the centers 12-bed medical detox unit, outpatient counseling or many other combinations for treatment, including group therapy for minors and holistic therapies to enhance treatment plans. DLC even has three beds available for people who participate only in a daytime program but who would otherwise have to find shelter accommodations or sleep on the streets or in their car. The center has an immediate assessment service where people can walk in the door and see a clinician for an evaluation. Its an uncommon approach, Mr. Burgess says, but it meets the centers goal of making treatment as accessible as possible for people who are ready for change. One of the things we know is that we need to break down as many artificial and actual barriers to people as possible, he says. We need to strike when the iron is hot. When they say they are ready, willing and able, we need to allow for as immediate access as possible. A round-the-clock hotline is available for those who want to speak to someone over the phone, and the center has a designated staff person who can make trips to a jail cell, a hospital or a home to help a person begin the intake process. As a nonprofit organization, DLC accepts health insurance and uses a sliding fee scale, which requires an income statement in order to determine what a patient must pay. We want to be a care provider for everyone in the community, Mr. Burgess says. We dont want finances to keep people from care.

The Kemps ridley is considered the most endangered sea turtle, but it also happens to be the most common species residing in the coastal waters of Southwest Florida. Understanding the sex ratio (number of males to number of females) of these potential recruits to the breeding population is essential to the conservation and management of this endangered species. The gender of a marine turtle is determined by the prevailing temperature in the nest during egg incubation. Warmer nest temperatures produce more females, while cooler temperatures produce more hence the saying hot mamas, cool daddies. The Kemps ridley primarily nests in the western Gulf of Mexico on a stretch of beach near Rancho Nuevo, Mexico. Since 1978, Mexican and U.S. biologists have collected eggs laid by nesting females and reburied the eggs in protective corrals to prevent poaching and depredation. This conservation measure led to the discovery that warmer incubation temperatures produce a long-term female biased sex ratio for Kemps ridley hatchlings. Despite this unintended consequence, female-biased sex ratios may have been advantageous to this critically endangered species. Adult marine turtles can be sexed by the length of the tail, whereby male turtles have a much longer tail than females. However, this characteristic is not apparent in the immature Kemps ridleys inhabiting our coastal waters. Other methods are used for sexing immature turtles such as the concentration of testosterone in the blood. Males have higher levels of this sex hormone than females. A study in the Ten Thousand Islands 15 years ago found significantly more immature female ridleys than males (two females to every male), as would be expected given the female hatchling bias on the nesting beach. Although the Kemps ridley population has undergone some dramatic changes in the past 20 years, increasing from the brink of extinction owing to bi-national conservation efforts, the numbers are still well below historical estimates. The increasing number of nesting females has resulted in the protective corrals reaching capacity, and some of the nests have been left to incubate naturally on the beach. Because this relatively recent practice could result in different hatchling sex ratios, more up-to-date studies are needed for sexing immature Kemps ridleys living in our coastal waters. With help form the Sea Turtle Grants Program award, Conservancy staff along with Greg Curry of Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, Drs. Camryn Allen and Jeff Seminoff with the National Marine Fisheries Service and Jeff Schwenter of the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources will investigate any size-specific or seasonal differences in sex ratio and compare their sexing data to earlier efforts in the Ten Thousand Islands and other regions of west Florida. The Turtle Grants Program is supported by proceeds from the sale of the Florida Sea Turtle License Plate.

I found a great center of excellence within the hospital and so frankly it was a very easy decision. Rendering of Shipley Cardiothoracic Center Learn to make an impression when speaking to an audienceWant to be more effective when speaking to the county commission, the school board, your colleagues or any other group of people? Ever wondered how to make an audience more receptive to your message? How to relax and present your point in a convincing manner? A public speaking class offered this summer for the first time by The Naples Players can help. There is an educational spirit to everything we do at The Naples Players, whether that education takes place on stage or in a classroom, says John Sorey, executive director of the community theater that is a beloved Naples institution. A fun-filled workshop for those who must or want to speak in public will take place from 7-10 p.m. on Tuesdays, June 21-July 26 at the Sugden Community Theatre. Instructor Randall Kenneth Jones will provide guidance to benefit everyone from business professionals and government employees to members of the news media, civic activists, teachers, would-be elected officials, nonprofit representatives and community outreach personnel. Mr. Jones is an actor well known to local audiences as well as a business columnist, marketing/PR consultant and motivational speaker. The most important issue is getting students on their feet in front of others, he explains. Though there are certainly specific techniques to successful public speaking, my emphasis is on helping each speaker reach a new comfort level by discovering and expressing their authentic selves in front of an audience. In addition to a variety of on-yourfeet exercises, the workshop will include a group exploration of the recently released Ted Talks book by Chris Anderson. The curriculum will also include lessons learned from Joness time spent with high-profile public speakers including Erin Brockovich, James Carville, Barbara Corcoran, Jeffrey Hayzlett, Mary Matalin, Suze Orman, Bob Orr, Peggy Post and the late Peter Thomas. Cost of the class ranges from $124 to $140 for members of The Naples Players and is $200 for others. Purchase of Ted Talks is also required. For more information about class specifics, call Mr. Jones at (571) 238-4572. To sign up, call The Naples Players at 434-7340, ext. 10. Registration deadline is June 16.

(In the mans other hand, of course: beer.) In April, police in Broome (in Australias far northwest) on traffic patrol stopped a 27-year-old man whose several children, including one infant, were unrestrained in his car while cartons of beer were buckled into car seats, according to a report by the Australian Broadcasting Corp.

Officials had spotted Ms. Latto (who has worked as a drag queen) in a BBC documentary wearing boxer shorts, and since switching underwear is usually such a crucial step for transgenders, they concluded she must not yet have made a sufficient-enough commitment to qualify for the title.BirdbrainsIn her book The Genius of Birds, biologist Jennifer Ackerman noted the extraordinary intelligence of birds attributed to the dense packing of neurons in their equivalent of the human cerebral cortex (according to an April Wall Street Journal review of the book). For example, the New Caledonia crow, among others, knows how to make and use hooked tools to hide food (and retrieve it from tricky-to-reach places), and the blue jay and others, which store many thousands of seeds during autumn, also steal seeds from less-vigilant birds (and they even return to re-hide food if they sense they have been spotted storing it earlier). Additionally, of course, the avian equivalent of the human larynx is so finely tuned as to be regarded the most sophisticated sound in all of nature.Nature 2, Florida 0 Nicole Bjanes, casually zipping along Interstate 4 in Volusia County around noon on May 9, saw a red-eared slider turtle come sailing through the air and crash into her windshield, sending her car off the road.

On May 10, police in Key West responded to a caller at the scene of a giant banyan tree (common to Florida and featuring vertical roots that thicken, spread and become entangled with the central trunk). A woman had attempted to climb the tree but had fallen among the vertical roots, making her barely visible.

A18 WEEK OF JUNE 9-15, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYGet the Facts About Laser Cataract SurgeryRecently, some surgeons have been offering their patients cataract surgery that uses lasers in place of traditional tools. Laser cataract surgery is newer and more expensive, but is it better? Are Newer Surgical Techniques Always Better? Cataract surgery involves removing the clouded natural lens of the eye and replacing it with a clearer synthetic lens. Its one of the most common and successful surgeries today, being performed three million times each year in the United States.1Decades ago, cataract surgery wasnt as common or successful. In the 1960s, surgeons made large incisions in the eye to remove the lens in one piece. Patients required general anesthesia, sutures, and more than a month of recovery time.2After the 1960s, surgeons began using a needle vibrating at ultrasonic speeds to break the lens into extremely small pieces and remove it through a tiny incision. The incision was small enough to heal on its own without sutures, which decreased recovery times and rates of infection.2 Modern cataract surgery now enjoys a 98% or higher success rate.1If traditional cataract surgery has such an excellent track record, why are some surgeons switching to laser cataract surgery? In a word: LASIK. Since it was introduced to the United States in1999, LASIK has proven that powerful pulses of light can do some things that metal instruments cant. Lasers have sculpted the natural lens of the eye accurately enough to improve nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism for millions of people. Can similar laser technology replace the ultrasonic needle of traditional cataract surgery? Some cataract surgeons think so, but new a different story. Does Laser Cataract Surgery Cause Swelling in the Retina? In 2015 researchers in Australia studied laser cataract surgery patients by examining the amount of swelling in the center of the retina, the area responsible for the most detailed vision. They compared it to the swelling in patients who had traditional cataract surgery. The laser cataract more retinal swelling.4Verdict: Laser cataract surgery may adversely affect the retina. Does Laser Cataract Surgery Worsen Dry Eye? Since traditional cataract surgery can cause dry eye, researchers in China recently compared traditional cataract surgery patients to laser cataract surgery patients to see if there was a difference. Both groups of patients had drier eyes after surgery, but laser cataract surgery patients had it worse, especially patients who had dry eyes before the surgery.5Verdict: All cataract surgery has a risk of dry eye, but laser cataract surgery has a higher risk. Does Laser Cataract Surgery Provide Clearer Vision? Perhaps patients would pay more, and risk more side effects, if laser cataract surgery ultimately provided better vision than traditional researchers in Australia compared the visual results of cataract surgery patients between 2012 and 2014. The result? Patients receiving laser cataract surgery did not have meaningful improvements in vision compared to patients receiving traditional cataract surgery. Verdict: Laser cataract surgery doesnt provide clearer vision than traditional cataract surgery. Is Laser Cataract Surgerys Laser cataract surgery requires newer and more specialized technology than traditional cataract surgery, making it more expensive. This prompted researchers in Australia to study its cost effectiveness. If laser cataract surgery could provide better vision for more years with fewer complications, perhaps the increased cost could pay for itself in the long run. However, the researchers found that laser cataract surgery doesnt have fewer complications and doesnt provide better vision for a longer period of time.3In fact, laser cataract surgery has a higher risk of several complications, like swelling of the cornea, swelling of the retina, haze behind the lens, trauma to the cornea, and rupture of the capsule that holds the lens.7Verdict: Laser cataract surgerys it doesnt provide better vision and it leads to more complications. Does Eye Centers of Florida Recommend Laser Cataract Surgery? Until laser cataract surgery can offer better results than traditional cataract surgery, we at Eye Centers of Florida believe its best for patients to choose traditional cataract surgery. Thats why we currently dont recommend laser cataract surgery to our own patients. David C. Brown M.D., F.A.C.S. Cataract Surgeon Eye Centers of Florida Founder 239.939.3456.1.

BEHIND THE WHEELThe Audi TT: A coupe thats more than just an angry faceOwning a coupe like this is a declaration of style. After all, in Florida most personal-sized sports cars like the 2016 Audi TT are convertibles. Rather than choosing the drop-top version of this car, allowing the roof to make a teardrop descent back into the body is a sign of prizing metal seduction over sunny day swagger. But there might be more at work here than just pure style. Now in its third generation, the new Audi TT is sporting its most aggressive face yet. The headlights have sharp angles, and they are mounted below the hood line. Combined with the coupe body, it gives an overall impression that this German is plotting against the other cars in the parking lot, and it is just waiting for a calculated moment to strike. The look was established by its bigger brother, the first R8 supercar. The TT wears it well. There is an argument that 2+2 seating in the coupe adds practicality (the TT roadster eliminates the rear seats to make room for the folding roof.) However, trying to fit anything more than the family pet in the back will be met with plenty of complaints. Instead, practical people should just fold them down and have a spacious hatchback with room for two.The interior layout is one of the most thoughtful executions in the market segment. Sports cars traditionally offer the essentials of driving to save weight and keep the driver connected to the road. But today we expect a lot more features, especially from a car that starts at $42,900.Audi rectifies these two opposing ideas by cleverly packaging the luxury amenities. For example, within each vent where most cars just have a knob to change the direction of the air, the TT has a dial, button and small digital readout. These control everything from the cabin temperature to the seat heaters. So an entire climate control panel can be eliminated and the interior appears minimalist without loosing features.Another key to the unfussy setup is the Audis virtual cockpit. It turns the drivers gauge panel into a high definition LCD display. Instead of a central screen for features like the backup camera, stereo or satellite navigation, all of the info is just as handy as a speedometer is in other cars. The virtual cockpit is a simple solution to a complicated problem, and that also means it is a very complex feature. The steering wheel has some of the most multi-function control buttons weve ever seen. Techno-buff drivers will love having all this control literally at their fingertips, and everyone else will catch on over time without too much bother. While the virtual cockpit is optional on other Audis, it is standard on the TT. The features is not only essential to keeping the int erior unclutter ed in this personal sports car, but also it helps establish a standout place in a market that has plenty of coupes above and below it in pricing. Audi is quite aware that the TT needs to be as distinctive as possible, and that is also why Quattro all-wheel drive comes standard on all trim levels. Audis extensive use of alloys in the construction makes this car even lighter than its predecessor. This sprightly surefootedness gives the coupe the kind of confidence around corners that can give even the most novice sports car drivers some expert-level accuracy. It is not the only car that can do this, but the TT is more sophisticated than a Subaru WRX and less than half the price of a Porsche Carrera 4.Our bold Vegas Yellow test car had to live up to its sporty image, so it was upgraded to the TTS model. This adds features like magnetic ride adjustable suspension and larger brakes, and the 2.0-liter turbocharged motor has been boosted 72 horsepower for a total of 292. It also increases the price by $9K. It is worth it for those who turn traffic into a slalom, but it also brings this Audi close to Porsche Cayman money.

Coupon Expires 6/30/16.Naples Bonita Springs Make this a summer of awakeningHaving trouble staying anchored in the midst of daily living, Election 2016 and global tensions? Perhaps you can find an oasis in a meditation spiritual intensive program based on the teachings of Eckhart Tolle (The Power of Now and The Art of Presence). Registration is open for a four-week session that runs Thursday evenings, July 14-Aug. 4, at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greater Naples. The Journey of Awakening is facilitated by Naples resident Linda Allen and managed by Donna Carty. A student of Mr. Tolle for 13 years, Ms. Allen has led intensives in Wisconsin for several years and in Naples since mid-2013. She has been a student of the ancient wisdom teachings and great spiritual leaders and a practitioner of meditation for more than 40 years and blends these teachings in her own way to help others embrace awareness and presence to overcome challenges and bring deep joy into in their daily lives. Each session of The Journey of Awakening will begin with a guided meditation and will be followed by viewing a portion of a DVD of Mr. Tolles presentation in Belfast, Ireland, in which he opens his audience to the mystery of consciousness and encourages a shifting away from the deeply engrained assumption that there is something more important than this moment. The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greater Naples is at 6340 Napa Woods Way. The summer sessions meet from 6:30-8 p.m. Cost is $30 for all four sessions, and participation is limited to the first 50 people who sign up by July 8. No walk-ins will be accepted.

RSVP is required by calling Ms. Ekblad at 354-6143 or emailing For more information about either of the above programs, visit markers for depression may predict exercise benefit UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDAA University of Florida study has found that specific genetic markers that put people at risk for depression also predict who might benefit from exercise. The researchers found that men who were carriers of two specific genes had the most significant response to exercise. The results suggest physical activity as part of a treatment plan exercise as moderate as walking could help the carriers of these genes. I want to better understand who could benefit most from physical activity. Id like to take the same approach to exercise that we take to medication, which is to have a personalized medicine approach, said Vonetta Dotson, Ph.D., the studys first author and an assistant professor in the College of Public. If we show through systematic research that exercise has a good chance of helping a patient because of their particular characteristics, I think that might help with patients motivation to exercise. The results came from a small pilot study, so more research needs to be done before this work can be translated into clinical practice. But in the future, its possible that blood or saliva could be tested to determine if a person could benefit from physical activity to lower depressive symptoms. The study used data gathered in the Lifestyle Interventions and Independence for Elders, or LIFE, pilot study. During the LIFE pilot study, 396 sedentary older adults were separated into two groups: those who received health education classes and those who were given moderate physical activity classes for 12 months. A subsequent paper published from the LIFE pilot study found that exercise did not significantly affect depression symptoms across the whole group, but that changed when the research team tunneled down into the data. When we looked at subgroups, we ended up finding significant response to exercise in men who were carriers of a specific gene. Ms. Dotson said. To assess the participants response to exercise, they took a test called the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale, a screening test for depression and depressive disorders, at the beginning of the LIFE studys intervention. They took the test again after the interventions ended, at 12 months. The scale assesses four factors, including symptoms of sadness and fearfulness, symptoms such as loss of appetite and concentration difficulties, and a diminished capacity to experience pleasure or perceived difficulties in social relationships. The participants also underwent genetic testing before the intervention, and the researchers tested three genes: the brain-derived neurotrophic, or BDNF, gene, a serotonin transporter gene and a gene called apolipoprotein E. The researchers found the greatest decrease in symptoms such as loss of appetite and concentration difficulties in men who carried the BDNF genetic variation that predisposed them to depression. They also saw an increase in the capacity to experience pleasure in men who exercised regularly who carried specific variations of the serotonin transporter gene. Ms. Dotson said the study provides evidence that physical activity could be explored as an intervention for depression, but warns that this study was not done in people whose symptoms were severe enough to be formally diagnosed with clinical depression. She said its also important to understand the benefits of exercise because of the impact medications may have on the brains of older adults. Im trying to understand how exercise versus antidepressants affect the brain, she said. The next step for me is to understand from a brain standpoint who is going to benefit and how exercise is going to be beneficial in addition to or as an alternative to medication. HEALTHY LIVING

Beardeds are not only tame when handled, but many also seem to enjoy the contact. Even better, theyre suitable for almost any pet lover or family situation and a great pet for a responsible child. Bearded dragons enjoy exploring, whether crawling on their owners or around the house. They stick out their tongues to touch new surfaces to determine the temperature and makeup of the area a behavior that adds to their appeal. Beardeds live to be about 10 years old and will measure 18 to 24 inches in length, including the tail. Hatchling beardeds are only about 3 inches in length and look more like a gecko than a giant lizard species. Common colorings of the bearded are yellow and tan, though they can be found in more vibrant yellow, orange and albino. The bearded dragon name comes from the display the pet puts on when trying to act tough. The puffed-beard display is used only defensively to scare away potential threats. Along with puffing out, beardeds also flatten out their bellies to look wider, as well as leave their rather large mouths gaping open to intimidate the potential threat. Beardeds are quite happy to live alone in the wild, except when in search of mates. If you want more than one, however, theres no downside, since they seem to enjoy the companionship of another of their kind. Female beardeds can usually be housed with another female or male, but males should not be housed together, due to territorial aggression. Beardeds need human help to maintain their temperature in captivity, using heat lamps or warming pads. They do well in tanks where some areas are cooler and some are warmer a range of 85 to 105 degrees by day, dipping into the 70s at night. Youll also need special lighting, since these reptiles need UVB rays to properly absorb dietary calcium. A full-spectrum light should be provided 12 to 14 hours a day most of the year, and 10 to 12 hours in the winter. Omnivores by nature, beardeds enjoy both plants and meat in their diet. Juveniles enjoy a carnivorous diet, while adults become primarily herbivores, enjoying a diet of dark, leafy vegetables and some fruit. All food given to the bearded should be shredded into easy-toswallow, bite-size pieces. Insects should be given to adult beardeds two to three times per week. They eat mainly crickets, but also mealworms, wax moth larvae and pinkie mice in limited amounts. Beardeds hit sexual maturity between 1 and 2 years of age, when females will start laying eggs, regardless of whether theyve been mated. Veterinary care is minimal for pets who are being properly cared for. After purchase, your bearded should be examined for health and parasites, with treatment for the latter if necessary. After that, annual examinations are recommended, to help your veterinarian understand whats normal for your pet, so treatment can be more targeted if theres a problem.

But the good news is that the pace at work is a little slower, our calendars are clearing, the weekend vibe is more relaxed and, best of all, we can cool down with summertime cocktails. A couple of girlfriends and I were at delicious farm-to-table lunch at Rosy Tomorrows Heritage Farm (seriously, well worth the drive from anywhere; check it out at recently when the conversation drifted to summer libations. Alli said she loves sipping chilled rose wine this time of year and told us her favorite label is Whispering Angel (even the name sounds heavenly) from Provence, France. Its fresh, fruity and pretty in pink. Liz and I then reminisced about a wonderful drink we discovered on a girls trip to Texas a few years back. At a little hipster bar in downtown Austin, we imbibed in something called a Back Porch Iced Tea. Served in a tall glass over ice with a sprig of mint, it was one part green tea, one part Titos vodka and one part limencello liqueur. While very refreshing, it packed a real wallop. After two of these, we all started speaking with a Texas drawl. As we lunched and continued our consideration of summertime cocktails, the three of us agreed that one of our all-time favorite and most simple ones is what we call the Frescaquila. I think Liz is the one who invented it after I told her about reading an interview with Cindy Crawford in which the supermodel claimed she maintained her figure by sipping tequila during dinner instead of wine (it makes sense, because an ounce of tequila is roughly 64 calories and zero carbs). For the benefit of those of us who dont have the constitution for straight tequila, however, Liz came up with the fabulous idea to serve it over ice with a healthy splash of Fresca (zero calories/zero carbs). We have enjoyed Frescaquilas together over many a sweltering summer afternoon ever since. Unfortunately, none of us has acquired a Cindy Crawford body in the process. Alli, Liz and I arent the only ones who get inventive with beverages when it comes to moist, sticky afternoons and evenings when the thermometer registers in the 90s. Our friend Lanes signature summer drink is perfect for those times on the lanai under a ceiling fan. Those of us whove been lucky enough to be invited for one of her Sunday soirees know these delights Lane-A-Ritas. Heres the recipe: 1 can of frozen lime aid poured into a pitcher Fill empty can with tequila and add it 1 bottle of Corona Light 1 can of diet Sprite Stir well Trust me, not only are Lane-A-Ritas yummy, theyre easy and easy is important in the heat of summer. Were trying to rid ourselves of stress, not add to it. Melinda has the secret for a perfect boat drink (again, easy is important here, because one doesnt want to fuss with a lot of ingredients when one is dealing with choppy seas). Just mix Mount Gay Rum with fresh limejuice (or Roses if youre in a pinch) and soda water. Serve it in a Tervis tumbler with a lid and a straw. No muss, no fuss. For poolside festivities where glass is a no-no, my friend Jane has the solution: Into a gallon jug youve saved, put about 3 inches of cut-up fruit tidbits pineapple, strawberries, apples, peaches, whatever your fancy. Cover the fruit with apple juice and freeze overnight. When its time to retire to the pool the next day, top off the jug with a bottle of chilled pinot grigio and grab the red Solo cups. White sangria has never been more chill. Since coconut water keeps you hydrated, my friend Juli loves this short cocktail over a ball of ice: one part coconut water, one part vodka and a big squeeze of fresh lime. And Sadie with the sweet tooth has coined what she calls Gator Juice, a mixture of pineapple juice, coconut rum, a splash of vodka and a splash of cranberry all topped off with a tuft of green cotton candy to get that gator color. My pal Mila knows someone who makes a summer cocktail called Amnesia but alas, she can never remember whats in it. And finally, my friend Lacey swears by water, just plain old-fashioned water. I say drink it in between each summer cocktail, that way you shouldnt need a Bloody Mary the next morning unless, of course, you want one. Ciao for now, my lovelies! Stay tuned for another divalicious diary entry next week c t a i L t stephanieDAVIS

B3 OVERTIME SHIFT As many as 4 million workers could start receiving overtime under new federal rules. BY ROGER WILLIAMSrwilliams@ oridaweekly.comIN LESS THAN SIX MONTHS, EVERYthing in the American workplace will change for employers and millions of salaried workers who will be bound by new federal wage laws. Starting Dec. 1, people earning salaries of $47,476 or less must be paid time-and-a-half for every hour they work over 40 in a given week. The new law applies both to private businesses and such public or nonprofit agencies as schools or community benefit groups. Thus an employee making a salary of $38,400 per year, for example $20 per hour for 40 hours in each of 52 weeks would be paid $30 per hour for 10 hours, or $300 additional dollars, if he or she worked 50 hours in one week. Its going to be a significant change for employers and employees. Whether thats a good thing SEE OVERTIME, B4

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 9-15, 2016 BUSINESS B3Part 1: Loyalty management makes sense in the long run BY FRANK FRIENDSpecial to Florida WeeklyLoyalty management is based on the premise that a companys growth and profitability are more secure when it develops loyal relationships with stakeholders: customers, employees, suppliers and shareholders/lenders.Achieving this is not easy, however; it requires empathetic, committed managers who are not afraid to reject the we always did it this way style of management managers who do not sacrifice the future for short-term gains. Loyalty management should be the preferred model for small companies since it provides the maximum return for the minimum investment. Some managers think this nave, not least those who believe a companys sole purpose is to increase shareholder value. Often these managers claim their employees are their greatest asset (try finding employees on the balance sheet). Sadly, this asset is the first to be eliminated in the search for yet more short-term profits. So, are there provable financial benefits from developing loyal relationships? Absolutely. One example is Starbucks. Analysts agree that increased customer loyalty/feedback was largely responsible for the companys 22 percent rise in profits reported for the fourth quarter of 2015. One study by Harvard and the global management consulting firm of Bain & Company shows that a 5 percent increase in customer retention can increase profits anywhere from 25 percent to 95 percent. Loyal customers are retained longer, they refer more people to your company and give you more of their purchases. They have three or more times the lifetime value of the average customer (the total margin generated over the length of the relationship).Its vital to understand that loyal and satisfied are not synonymous terms. Loyalty results when an emotional bond is forged with customers, employees and others. Many surveys have shown that around two-thirds of customers who switched suppliers say they were satisfied, or very satisfied with their previous one. Loyal customers dont switch so easily.Loyal employees are the foundation on which a loyal customer base is built; its impossible to develop loyal customers without loyal employees, those who are engaged and who see their interests being served by helping to make the company as successful as possible. Suppliers are rarely considered in loyalty conversations, even though building good relationships with them by sharing your plans, being sensitive to their needs and paying them on time can be valuable when you need a favor, such as extended terms, for instance. Developing loyal relationships with investors and lenders involves convincing them of the benefits of loyalty management and of the need to avoid sacrificing long-term growth and profits for shortterm gains. This can be difficult. Devising a strategy to increase your proportion of loyal stakeholders involves first determining your present position with your various stakeholders, starting with your customers. A simple way to start is to conduct a oneor two-question Net Promoter Score survey of customers to identify those who are promoters (loyal), passives (satisfied) and detractors. A less obvious benefit of loyalty management is a reduction in managements collective blood pressure, a result of less conflict with and among stakeholders, more positive than negative attitudes and more fun throughout the company. Frank Friend is a volunteer business counselor with SCORE Naples. A Naples resident for 11 years, he has worked with large international manufacturing and consulting groups and also started and built product, advertising and consulting companies in both the U.S.A. and the UK. In his next column, Mr. Friend will discuss how to conduct a Net Promoter Score survey and other aspects of the loyalty management model.

LICENSED & INSURED CALL FOR A FREE ESTIMATE. or not (for the U.S. economy) remains to be seen, says Suzanne Boy, a west coast Florida labor attorney and employment law expert at Henderson-Franklin, based in Fort Myers. Her blog explaining the effect of new laws on employers can be found at Employers now face a range of complicated questions and in many cases new obligations, she notes. For example, they will need to put on the clock those salaried employees who sometimes work less than 40 hours or more than 40 hours. About workers earning salaries relatively close to the threshold, Ms. Boy adds, employers are asking, Do I bump these people up to more than threshold, do I pay them more overtime, do I reduce their hours? Its going to be an interesting change over the next six months. The threshold for the new pay requirements roughly doubles the previous salary standard of $23,660 or less, created in 2004. The rules are based on a 1938 labor law, established under President Franklin D. Roosevelt, that also exempts workers from the requirement only if theyre classified as managers, administrators, executives or professionals. The number of workers likely to be affected is uncertain. The U.S. Department of Labor, which will enforce the law from its local or regional offices by inspections of businesses, says about 4.2 million workers are likely to be affected. But the Economic Policy Institute puts the number of people who might qualify for overtime pay under these rules at 12.5 million. The EPI also indicates that if the figure had been adjusted for inflation, the new threshold would be $52,000. Instead, according to the Labor Department, the new figure, set to be updated automatically every three years to maintain the new level of pay, is based on the 40th percentile of weekly earnings for people making salaries in the U.S. Census region with the lowest wages the South. The principle behind the change is simple: to help the middle class, says Bill Long, a professor emeritus of economics at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton. We do have a problem with income inequality, with the fact that the middle class hasnt seen an increase in wages for 20 years or more. So youd expect the government to do this kind of thing, he explains. But the best way for businesses to look at it might not be just to blindly fight it. Yes, anytime you force a business to pay against its will, there will be some negative impact on the business. Then its a question of the circumstances of the business and how owners deal with it change the number of workers, raise prices for consumers, change technology? But some businesses find when they dont pay above the basic minimum they have high turnover rates, so theyre continually training new people and that might be more costly than paying more in the first place. One business owner now trying to embrace the new rules, at least in principle, and working to understand how they might apply to his own enterprise is Will Prather, owner of the robustly thriving Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre in Fort Myers. From a theater standpoint were going to be OK it will have a minimal impact, he says. The most shows well ever do in a week is nine, and a musical takes between 18 and 22 actors, normally, with a couple of stage hands and a live orchestra of four to five instruments so my staff of 25 or 26 might do 36 hours a week. But on the technical side the nonperformance side people can go over the limit, with 60 hours a week sometimes to get ready for a show and do it. Mr. Prathers scene shop is in Pennsylvania where his father originally founded the family business, and where many workers, some of them salaried with annual pay, must sometimes work feverishly and for long hours to create a new set, but other times find themselves in rather languid down periods, he explains. At the moment, theyre working to build an elaborate set for the musical Mary Poppins, and that will most certainly require a more than 40-hour-perweek effort from some. Many of those workers, however, are already paid at higher than the $47,663 threshold, so he wont have to worry about changes for them, he says. Finally, there is Mr. Prathers significant and important sales staff and for them and everybody who might be affected, my CFO has been pushing me to get us on the clock, he says. I support the new rules in principle but for the sales staff, what about when they go to social mixers or business expos, are they on the clock? What if some of my managers like to work from home? Or respond (at all hours) in emails or text messages is that on the clock? I think there will be some sorting it all out but I do not see in my organization this having adverse effects on employees and managers. That may not be true from the viewpoint of Angela Hogan, director of the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition, who has a staff of 26 but only a few who might be affected. Still, a key few, she says. Some of my staff are right on the edge, and if I give them a small raise they can be exempted, so it would affect them positively. But others could have to be made hourly employees, and that might affect them negatively, she explains. Among the nonprofit community theres been a lot of conversation about it, much of it very negative. The benefit to being on a salary, for me, is there are some weeks where you dont work 40 hours. Theres flexibility in that. And there are some weeks you need to do more, but its about getting the job done. My staff understands that, so theres flexibility around those weeks where things are slower and quieter. Other benefits Ms. Hogan points to include additional vacation or sick days, or people making their own schedules and appointments and not recording every detail of time spent working. One the biggest headaches Ms. Hogan may face is planning, she acknowledges. At some point I have to have a conversation with the board. Because we cant afford to have fluctuation as a nonprofit. Our state and federal contracts dont allow us to change our contracts after theyve been established. Instead, we have to tell them a year in advance what well pay. So, if I have no idea how much a job will require a year in advance, I have to make guesses. Her conclusion: Its unfortunate that some people abused the system so all the others are forced into a new way of doing things that might not be practical. I think its meddling, overreaching, she says. In the eyes of the labor attorney, Suzanne Boy, the new law sounds impressive in the headlines, but it may be different in the reality. The headlines are, million people entitled to overtime pay! she explains. But the reality is theyre g oing to be creative about how to continue to perform work for the same amount of pay. Whether they come up with overtime and hourly time adjustments as before; whether they keep a formerly exempt person at 40 hours, or hire other people to do the work on a consulting or hourly basis, theyre going to find (workaround solutions). In any case, she concludes, there wont be this switch in which 4 million suddenly get paid overtime.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 9-15, 2016 BUSINESS B7 I trace my roots back to a store selling herbal remedies in Nottingham, England, in 1849 and a pharmacist buying a drugstore in Chicago in 1901. Today Im the largest retail pharmacy in the USA and Europe, and one of the worlds largest purchasers of prescription drugs. My brands include stores bearing my name, as well as Duane Reade, No7, Botanics, Liz Earle and Soap & Glory. Between my businesses and ones in which Im invested, I have more than 13,000 stores in more than 25 countries, employing more than 370,000 people. Who am I? Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Old Stock CertificatesThese days, stocks are typically owned electronically through brokerages, without paper stock certificates distributed and redeemed through the mail. Still, one day you may encounter some old stock certificates in a dusty drawer and wonder if theyre worth anything and what to do with them. Their value can be hard to determine, as companies often merge with and split from other companies over time and/or change their names along the way. Some end up out of business, with their stock worthless.First off, make sure that the shares were actually registered in someones name, which should be printed on the certificate. Make sure the shares dont say canceled on them or arent punched through with holes. If the certificates pass those tests, you might see if you can find the company listed in your newspapers stock listings, or at one of many sites such as, where you can look up companies and their stock quotes. You can call your brokerage and ask, too ideally after you locate the CUSIP number on the certificate, which is a unique identifier. It can help in researching the shares.You might also contact either the secretary of state for the state in which the shares were issued or the transfer agent listed on the stock certificate. If the transfer agent is still in business, it should be able to help you value the security and determine how many shares you now own (due to splits, mergers, etc.).If all this sounds too difficult, consider using a paid stock-research service that has access to lots of resources. (Theyll research bond certificates, too.) If the certificates are worthless, they might buy them from you to sell as collectibles or you could try selling them yourself. Two researching companies to look into are Scripophily, at oldcompany. com and 888-786-2576, and Stock Search International, at and 800-537-4523. Dont toss any old certificates without researching them. You might end up with a welcome windfall. A Shiny LossAfter watching a familiar actor hype its products on TV, I bought almost $10,000 worth of what I was told would be almost uncirculated (AU) gold and silver coins from a certain company. I failed to see in the fine print of the customer agreement that the company reserves the right to fill a customer purchase with similar products of varying grades of coins from its inventory.So instead of receiving AU-grade coins, I received coins that my local coin dealer (who was certified by the American Numismatic Association as a qualified coin appraiser) called scruffy and scratched and that had obviously been heavily circulated. I had no choice but to return the coins for a 40 percent loss after having had them in my possession for too many days to get a full refund. L.L., onlineThe Fool Responds: That stinks. Its smart to always look into any company with which youre considering doing business. When we looked up your gold coin seller, we found that it had an A-plus rating from the Better Business Bureau, but it also had 19 complaints listed there, which had all been closed. The A-plus is clearly good, but the complaints are a red flag. Additional searching online uncovered more complaints and some warnings.The Federal Trade Commission offers warnings about investing in gold at Firing on Many CylindersIts not crazy to be wary of investing in General Motors (NYSE: GM), due to its significant debt load and that fact that it was forced to declare bankruptcy during the Great Recession. Its doing a lot of things right lately, though, and is worth considering for your portfolio. General Motors cars are garnering much more favorable reviews, it has the greatest market share in America of any automaker, and it will likely stop losing money in Europe within the next 12 months. The companys sales in China rose 7.5 percent in April, due chiefly to solid sales growth for its SUVs and premium Buick and Cadillac cars. U.S. sales fell in April, but the drop was more than accounted for by a planned reduction in low-profit sales to rentalcar fleets, while sales of its profitable trucks and SUVs continued to shine. The company is working to increase its sales to commercial and government fleets, typically more profitable sales channels. Its also investing in future growth, taking a stake in ride-hailing company Lyft and buying a self-driving-car startup. Sales dipped in the last quarter, but profitability rose. General Motors is a cyclical company, so investors should expect ups and downs. But its offering long-term believers a dividend yield recently near 5 percent, an attractive stock price and a good chance of growth. (The Motley Fool has recommended General Motors.) I trace my history back to 2000, when I began with an electronic security-trading platform. Over time, I added various exchanges, offering customers automation and efficiency. I now encompass 11 exchanges, including the venerable New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), which began back in 1792. More than 12,000 securities and contracts (such as futures) are listed on my exchanges (including about 78 percent of the S&P 500 companies), and my daily trade volume averages more than 9 million. The market value of the companies listed on the NYSE is about $25 trillion, making me kind of important. Who am I? (Answer: Intercontinental Exchange) Two Kinds of IncomeQWhat are fixed income and equity income mutual funds? B.T., New OrleansATheyre both mutual funds designed to deliver income to shareholders. The term fixed income refers to bonds, which typically have fixed interest rates. Bonds are often thought of as safer than stocks, but not all are. U.S. Treasury bonds are rather safe, backed by our government, municipal bonds generally offer taxfree income, corporate bonds carry more risk (and thus higher interest rates), and junk bonds offer the highest interest rates and highest risk.Equity, meanwhile, refers to stocks, and equity income funds will be focused on dividend-paying ones. This is different from growth or value funds, which invest in companies whose stock is expected to advance, regardless of whether the companies even pay a dividend. Many fastgrowing companies dont pay any dividends, as they funnel earnings into further growth. Mutual funds focused on income are great for those who need regular distributions of cash, such as retirees. However, even retirees might remain invested in some other funds or stocks, simply selling off a portion each year to generate the income they need.

K.V., Keene, New HampshireAYou might call the companys investor relations department and ask the folks there. Its easier online at sites such as finance., where you can type in the companys ticker symbol, and once on its quote page, click on the Historical Prices link in the menu on the left side of the page.

Ten-thousand years of recorded history reside, on-island, in The Barbara Sumwalt Museum. That rich history has given root for younger members to make their own contributions. The Grotto, located at the south end of the Island, is an ever-changing creation cobbled together among the mangroves. What began as a monument to a young mans passing, has become an eclectic assortment of gifts to the island in the form of personal treasures. Delivered primarily by younger members, this enchanting display of flowers, jewelry, personal trophies, poems, statues, plaques, favorite stuffed animals and more is transforming with the new generations that visit. The Islands topography is atypical to Florida, with a ridge running the length of the Island, reaching 35-40 feet above sea level and bordered by 100+-year old Banyans, Live Oaks and majestic Palms. This tropical paradise offers the perfect backdrop for family fun for all ages. From Easter Egg hunts overseen by the Easter Bunny and greeting Santas arrival by boat on Christmas Eve, to sophisticated lectures and presentations that promote awareness of the Islands history, wildlife, valuable eco-system and more. With an evolving generational influx, games that have been an on-island mainstay are taking on a new energetic culture. Bocce Ball, Tennis, 6-Wicket and Golf Croquet matches have become just a little livelier with friendly neighbor competition. Fishing on Useppa is always a friendly competition -no matter the age. From the Kids Tournaments every holiday weekend, to the highly anticipated Izaak Walton Tarpon Tournament each June, participants, as well as spectators, join in the revelry. The generational additions have been refreshing for the Island culture and its residents.

Severn House. 192 pages. Hardcover, $28.95. With his newest and noirist thriller, Michael Wiley pretty much forsakes traditional detective story plotting and follows a protagonist on his personal vendetta. Oren has gathered up a small group of his well-armed friends with the goal of murdering his mother and her husband, Kay and Walter. He wants it to be a slow, painful death. He is sure that the couple, who have a home on isolated Black Hammock Island in northeastern Florida near the Georgia border, killed his father, Amon Jakobson, 18 years ago, effectively abandoning Oren to an uncertain fate when he was only 8 years old. Det. Daniel Turner (for whom Mr. Wileys mystery series takes its name) of the local sheriffs office has had a continuing interest in the unsolved disappearance of Amon that is stirred up by the arrival of Oren and his vigilante crew. Because the detective is identified with Jacksonville in the series earlier novels, Black Hammock is no doubt to be imagined as part of the Jacksonville/ Duval County united government. How Oren executes his plan and how his actions affect others are the novels principle centers of interest. Bringing to life a rural, off-the-grid culture is another. Revealing the hard life of Amon is a third. The author handles his exposition by alternating two narrators. One is Oren, telling his own story (and his fathers) in his own way, at once humorous and threatening. The other is Lexi, the 18-year-old bookish daughter of Kay and Walter, who is looking for her chance to get away from the tawdry life at Black Hammock. Lexis concern about the future of her mentally disabled younger brother, Cristofer, has probably kept her from leaving the island. In having Lexi tell her side of the story that begins with Orens arrival (he keeps his identity a secret through most of the story), Mr. Wiley allows her to stand in for the reader. Her questions and suspicions about what this strange, intelligent, erratic fellow is doing by invading her home direct the readers interest, sympathy and judgment. For each narrator, and for the other important characters, Mr. Wiley has developed a distinctive voice. In fact, the books impact in large part comes from its frequently over-the-top dialogue. The rest is detail, pitch and style. Want to know about making premium tar? Youll find out how and also learn about its uses in this novel. Want to study the growing obsession of a talented artist with her own image? Then follow the word portrait that is created to probe Kays psyche. Might you enjoy an exceptional slice of Vietnam War literature imbedded in this novel as a slice of Amon Jakobsons life? Be my guest. The systematic razing of Kays and Walters stunted souls and sorry dwelling place is a dazzlingly lurid tour de force of action writing. Mr. Wiley stocks his novel with a fine cast of supporting characters. These include Orens driver, Paul; his girlfriend, Carole; the crudely villainous Walter; a neighboring oddball exreporter named Lane Charles; and, of course, the taciturn detective, Daniel Turner. The violence grows from one page to the next, and with it the suspense. Late in the book, there is an extended coda of nightmarish destruction that is truly remarkable literary prose. Black Hammock comes alive in the music of its mayhem. The Daniel Turner Thriller series is Mr. Wileys second such effort. The first was the prize-winning Joe Kozmarski PI series, set in Chicago. Now Mr. Wiley lives in Jacksonville, where he teaches literature at the University of North Florida. 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.

I got my start doing theater thats always been one of my loves, she says. But when I was 13 or 14, I realized you could write your own music. It was finally something where I didnt have to play a character. I could play myself and express myself through music. When she started taking songwriting courses and putting her own thoughts and experiences to music, the storytelling element of country is what kept her strumming and writing, she says. Homegrown, which was recorded at local studios, is a bit of homage to growing up in Southwest Florida and seeing a different side to the area than many tourists are privy to. For instance, the title track pays tribute to the 13th Avenue beach in Naples and the citys pier, a beloved hangout for anyone whos ever grown up here. I went to the 13th Avenue beach almost every weekend with my friends growing up. Youd show up and know everyone there, she says. I had this idea I had to write something beautiful and fun because thats what this town is. We do have high-end shops, yes, but we still have that hometown feel, which is what I love. The talent shes found at recording studios in the Bonita Springs and Estero areas has been a pleasant surprise, she says, and the studios themselves are like hidden gems. Homegrown was recorded at The Live Room, JGM Studios and Trilogy Studios and mastered in Nashville by Malloy Master Tracks Studios. In addition to providing the vocals, Ms. Friedman plays piano and harmonica. Her father accompanies her on guitar and bass. Probably my favorite part of recording is translating what I hear in my head, she says. I allow myself a lot of creative freedom. Well play it and work on it. Her first album, Triple Threat, was released when she was a teenager and had just discovered the thrill of songwriting. It was very pop/rock, Id say, for a 15-year-old, she says. I was just on fire. I was writing so much because it was new and exciting for me, that whole process of framing stories and thoughts into songs. Now 25 years old, as Ms. Friedman has developed as an artist and performer shes grown more comfortable with herself and her skills, which allows her to take risks. Performing more than 100 shows a year for private parties and at public venues, including gigs to put herself through Florida Gulf Coast University, certainly helped hone those chops. Although she works full time in marketing, she still performs a wide array of genres and is currently contracted for an eight-show series in partnership with Gator Country at Old Naples All American Sports Grill through July 9. You have to be pretty versatile around here, she says. I play a wide variety of music because we have so many different lovers of so many genres. Her repertoire of cover tunes ranges from Roy Orbisons Pretty Woman and Wilson Pickets Mustang Sally to Frank Sinatras Fly Me to the Moon, The Grateful Deads Friend of the Devil, Lady Gagas Pokerface and Led Zeppelins Stairway to Heaven. She also considers herself lucky to be able to perform her own compositions as often as she does. Ive been very fortunate to play a lot of my original music, she says. Thats probably the most exciting thing for me. Her key performances over the years include opening for John Ondrasik of Five for Fighting and joining the lineup of songwriters in the 2014 and 2015 Island Hopper Songwriters Festivals organized by the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau and presented in Sanibel-Captiva, Fort Myers Beach and Fort Myers by BMI Nashville and Cat Country 107.1. The release party for Homegrown takes place from 6-9 p.m. Friday, June 10, at Momentum Brewhouse in Bonita Springs. Ms. Friedman will sing selections from the album, and guest artists include Brandan James and DJ JayM will also perform. Admission is free and copies of Homegrown will be available for purchase.

Live Entertainment on Tuesdays through Summer! 6 6 Welcome Aboard! Exhibit shows how calypso music captured WWII, Holocaust history SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYStudent visitors to the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida this summer are learning about World War II history from an unlikely source: calypso music. A grant from the Naples Children & Education Foundation funded the creation of education programming based on the centers new exhibit, Calypso: Wartime through Song. The second annual Summer Institute program in conjunction with Grace Place for Children and Families is also hosting young people from the Boys and Girls Club of Collier County and other summer youth programs. By studying the lyrics of popular calypso songs of the day, students learn why Trinidad, the home of calypso music, was strategically important to both the Allied and Axis powers during the war. They also uncover facts about important WWII military battles that took place in the Caribbean and off the coast of South America. A variety of interactive experiences are part of the Summer Institute program, including one in which budding calypsonians create and perform songs using calypso instruments including a steel drum and the Tamboo Bamboo, a tall bamboo wood instrument.A bit of backgroundDuring the early to mid-20th century, calypso music became an important source of news and political commentary for people in the Caribbean and beyond. The genre is said to be a blending of various musical traditions: French, African and the famous annual Carnival festivities. Calypsonian musicians and songwriters had an influence that spread far beyond their small island over the years. They adopted bold stage names Roaring Lion, Atilla the Hun and Lord Invader and performed on stages and under tents, holding lively head-tohead competitions that were known as Calypso Wars. They also developed a free style of verse called extempo, a precursor to todays rap. In the years after World War I, the combination of tropical sounds, clever lyrics and bold stage names attracted the attention of U.S. recording companies. Many calypsonians recorded with the major record labels of the day, including Columbia, OKeh, QRS and Decca, in New York City. Their songs covered everything from daily life under colonial government to humorous Calypso War verbal jousts and sharp international political commentaries. Even sports were included. The song Joe Louis by The Caressers captured the famous 1936 Joe Louis/ Max Schmeling fight and its political undertones (which would emerge more fully during their 1938 rematch). A littleknown fact about the German fighter is that his long-time manager was Jewish; at great personal risk and despite his fame, Mr. Schmeling protected and hid his managers sons during Kristallnacht. The lyrics of Hitler Demanded Trinidad by Lord Invader served notice as a patriotic call to arms and also let Hitler know that the West Indians would be backing Great Britain should a fight come to their island.Lord Invader also created of one of the most famous songs of World War II: Rum and Coca-Cola. When The Andrews Sisters illegally produced a recording of the song, Lord Invader sued for copyright infringement and won his case in 1948.Calypso songs were the poor mans newspaper. Though far removed from the wars main fronts, the songs helped islanders keep up on the major headlines and opinions of the day. The naval battles in the Caribbean and off the coast of South America were the subject of Atilla the Huns The Admiral Graf Spree. The German naval vessel, notorious for its sinking of unarmed ships, was deliberately scuttled by its own commander so that it wouldnt fall into Allied hands. Other songs include The Invasion of Poland by Roaring Lion and Chamberlain Says Peace by Lord Beginner. Music is the theme for education seminarThe 13th annual Holocaust Education Seminar for area teachers is set for July 27-29. With the theme of Teaching WWII and the Holocaust through Music, this years program will incorporate information from the Calypso: Wartime through Song exhibit on display at the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida. Attendees will also hear first-hand from local Holocaust survivors and WWII veterans. The seminar is designed for those who teach grades 4-12. Classroomready materials, in-service points and daily refreshments will be provided. The $45 registration fee is due by July 18. The seminar is presented by the Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida with support from the Jewish Federation of Collier County, the Merrill Kuller Educator Fund and the Florida Commissioners Task Force on Holocaust Education.

East covers dummys queen with the king, and you win with the ace. Since your most promising suit is clubs, there is a strong temptation to lead a club to the queen at this point but it is best to resist that temptation. East might take the queen with the ace and return a spade, putting the contract in danger if the clubs turn out to be divided unfavorably. In the actual case, if you play a club toward dummy at trick two, you eventually finish down one. It is far better to lead a diamond to the jack at trick two and play a low club toward your hand. If East has the ace and takes it, the contract becomes certain, while if West has the ace, he can do you no harm whatever he returns. After winning the club with the jack at trick three, you continue to guard against the danger of Easts gaining the lead. Abandoning clubs for the moment, you lead a diamond to the queen and return a low heart from dummy. This is sure to tie East into a knot again if he has the ace, since if he plays it, you have nine tricks, while if he plays low instead, you remain on firm ground. In the actual deal, you win the heart with the king and establish your ninth trick by reverting to clubs. The strategy employed here is called avoidance play. Declarer proceeds in such a way that the dangerous defender in this case East cannot play high, except at the cost of a vital trick or tricks. Played this way, the contract is certain against any lie of the cards.

Its a laugh riot from start to finish that dares to satirize pop culture and the idol worship of celebrities. Rated R.X-Men: Apocalypse (James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac) Prof. X (Mr. McAvoy) and Mystique (Ms. Lawrence) lead the X-Men against the worlds first and most powerful mutant, Apocalypse (Mr. Isaac). The villain is boring, and the ample visual effects dont make up for the flawed story. Rated PG-13.Alice Through The Looking Glass (Mia Wasikowska, Sacha Baron Cohen, Johnny Depp) Alice (Ms. Wasikowska) returns to Wonderland and travels back in time to save the Mad Matters (Mr. Depp) family. The visuals are impressive, but the performances and story feel overdone. Rated PG.Neighbors 2 1/2(Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, Zac Efron) After living next to Teddys (Mr. Efron) fraternity in Neighbors (2014), Mac (Mr. Rogen) and Kelly (Ms. Byrne) now must deal with a sorority (led by Chloe Grace Moretzs Shelby) moving in next door. Its not as funny as the original, and its strong feminist message doesnt quite fit with the absurd comedy. Still, its humorous enough to warrant a moderate recommendation. Rated R. The Nice Guys (Russell Cr owe, Ryan Gosling, Margaret Qualley) A private eye (Mr. Gosling) and muscle man (Mr. Crowe) team up to find a missing girl (Ms. Qualley) in 1977 Los Angeles. The chemistry between Mr. Crowe and Mr. Gosling is tremendous, and there are enough creative laughs to make it satisfactorily entertaining. Rated R.The Man Who Knew Infinity (Dev Patel, Jeremy Irons, Toby Jones) An Indian mathematics prodigy (Mr. Patel) challenges the establishment at Cambridge University during World War I. Mr. Irons is solid as the mentor, but as a whole the film doesnt add up to being more than a standard drama. Rated PG-13.Captain America: Civil War 1/2(Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson) Threatened with government supervision, the Avengers split allegiances between Team Captain America (Mr. Evans) and Team Iron Man (Mr. Downey Jr.). Its a legitimate dilemma the heroes face, the action is inspired and the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand in logical, smart ways. Rated PG-13.Green Room (Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Patrick Stewart) A terrible punk rock band is held captive by Skinheads and must figure out how to escape before theyre killed. You will not necessarily like the members of the band, but its a testament to writer/director Jeremy Saulniers storytelling that you nonetheless root for them to survive. Patrick Stewart is especially chilling as the Skinhead leader. Rated R.

LIFE-ALTERING EXPERIENCES WHERE POSTCARD VIEWSmeet LATEST FILMSMaggies PlanIs it worth $10? YesMy high school history teacher, Mr. Sapienza, told me having a plan in life is important, but its not the end all and be all. To illustrate, he drew a straight line on the board. Point A, at the beginning of the line, is where I am now, he said. Point B, at the end of the line, is where I think Ill be in 10 years. What I cannot account for, he noted as he placed dots all over the open space between points A and B, is whats going to happen in the next 10 years that will alter my path away from point B, possibly permanently. Roughly 20 years of life experience later, I can say without reservation that Mr. Sapienza was 100 percent correct. I was reminded of this while watching Maggies Plan, in which Maggie (indie film darling Greta Gerwig), an early-30s art management advisor in New York City, keeps coming up with different plans that never play out the way she expects. Shes single and eager to have a baby, so she arranges a sperm donor from a pickle salesman (note the symbolism) named Guy (Travis Himmel). Before that transaction is complete, however, she meets John (Ethan Hawke), a work colleague whos also a noted academic, an aspiring fiction writer and good company. On the night she tries to artificially inseminate herself, John professes his love. Maggie reciprocates. He leaves his wife Georgette (Julianne Moore) and two kids for Maggie. It seems like a crazy love story that happened at just the right time. Too bad life has a way of usurping the best-laid plans. Writer/director Rebecca Millers film soon jumps to three years later, and Maggie, even with a daughter to call her own, is miserable. John is the same irresponsible malcontent he was with Georgette, bypassing all responsibility to Maggie while he endlessly writes his novel. He also spends hours on the phone with Georgette, which gives Maggie the idea to get John and Georgette back together. To say the least, complications ensue. Its a clever conceit, and Ms. Millers script is imbued with a quirky sense of humor that makes light of situations without undermining their seriousness. It also helps that she cast Bill Hader and Maya Rudolph as a bickering married couple who are friends with Maggie to lend needed perspective and levity throughout Maggies chaos. The story has its flaws, all of which are noticeable and forgivable. Examples: 1) John is a pseudo-intellectual louse who inexplicably has two smart women fall in love with him. I know Mr. Hawke plays him, but whats the appeal? And why would Maggie think shed be happy by enabling him? 2) Georgette is described as a cold-hearted Scandinavian whos making John miserable, but we learn thats not exactly true. This means Ms. Moore has the unenviable task of changing the viewers perception (between what were told and how she actually is) of Georgette in limited screen time. It would have been better for Ms. Moore and the narrative if John were merely unhappy with Georgette and didnt paint her as an unfeeling monster. Story quibbles aside, Ms. Miller directs with a steady hand thats in firm control of pacing and tone, which allows the running time of 98 minutes to feel crisp and just right. You might not always like or agree with the protagonists of Maggies Plan, but seeing them navigate the torturous seas of l ove, raising children and family drama is a tale of tribulation worth watching. dan

Im always on the prowl for objects to use in my columns and to educate myself. And so it was on one of my lunchtime stops that spied a set of exquisite 19th century faux bamboo chairs. They were in great condition and had wonderful woven rush seats. They were a bargain, too a set of four priced at about $100. Or were they? For one, they were wholly impractical. Only someone the size of a sprite could sit comfortably on one of these chairs. Anyone possessing of, ahem, a certain largesse almost certainly would break them the first time they leaned back in them. And its true that there is less demand for antique furniture, simply because people are buying less and when they do buy, are buying new. Thats especially true in South Florida, where so many residents sold their antiques before moving here. So whats going to happen to all these great objects that are no longer practical? I dont want to contemplate it. But I will say this: When I saw those chairs, I thought of the birdlike ladies who sat upon them when they were new. Their skirts would have all but covered the pieces. Its important to look forward, but its also important to look back to a time when people were smaller simply because they didnt have the nutrition and health care we take for granted today, and to contemplate their day-today lives. Just imagine the conversations they had! I smiled at the history, and moved on. For once, I was practical. scott SIMMONS COLLECTORS CORNERWhats to become of all the objects that are wholly impractical?

A nobleman in Germany was upset when his daughter refused her rich suitors because she wanted to marry a goldsmith. When the father imprisoned the goldsmith, his daughter became ill because she was denied her true love. The nobleman thought he could trick the daughter by agreeing to the marriage if the goldsmith could do an impossible task: make a cup that two people can drink from at the same time without spilling a drop. But the clever and talented goldsmith made a silver figure of the girl. Her skirt was hollow so it could be used as a cup, and her raised arms held a small swinging cup, allowing the lovers to sip from the cups at the same time. Today, the wedding cup symbolizes l ove, faithfulness and good luck for the bridal couple who drink from it. Q: My grandfather invented the Worley Water Waver, a device for curling or waving ladies hair, in 1926. Hair could be curled by pressing it against the wavy surface of the steel chamber that held hot water. It was a forerunner of the modern curling iron. I have one as well as the original patent that was issued to my grandfather in 1927. Not many of the devices were made because the financial backers of the project went under with the stock market crash. After the crash, my grandfather moved from the northeast to Florida, taking with him a supply of the wavers, which he sold as he traveled the highways. Im curious to know if it has any value other than sentimental. A: There arent many Worley Water Wavers around, but we found one listed in an online shop for $75. Yours might be worth a bit more because you have the original box and patent document. A local history museum or a collector who specializes in kitchen or cosmetic appliances might be interested in your waver, as well as your grandfathers story. Q: I have a felt doll with a painted face and mohair wig. Shes wearing a Spanish dancers costume and is about 12 inches tall. She has a gold tag that reads Klumpe, Patentado, Barcelona. What is the doll worth? A: Klumpe is one of several companies in Barcelona that made molded felt dolls dressed in Spanish costumes for the tourist trade in Spain fr om 1952 until the 1970s. The felt is molded over wire, making the dolls posable. Effanbee and other companies imported the dolls into the U.S. Dolls made before the mid-1960s are of better quality that those made later. The going rate is about $10-$20. Q: Ive been collecting old books and magazines for many years. I have The New Peerless World Atlas from 1918 and Fryes Complete Geography from 1898, as well as old Look, Life and other magazines. Are they more valuable intact, or should I remove the maps from the atlases and the covers and ads from the magazines and sell them individually? A: Keep your books and magazines intact and take them to a used bookstore to see what you can get for them. Be warned: They might not be interested in the magazines at all, but they most likely will give you a price for the books (about half what the store would sell them for). Tip: To set the time on a clock, push the minute hand clockwise, never counterclockwise. If the clock chimes, be sure to wait until it stops striking before you advance the hands again.

CELEBRITY EXTRASo long, Person of Interest BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: I have been watching Person of Interest since the beginning was so bummed to read in your column that it wont be back next year. Can you give me any scoop as to what to expect for the series finale? Steff S., Mims, Fla.A: The sci-fi crime drama on CBS starring Jim Caviezel and Michael Emerson takes its final bow on Tuesday, June 21. I was fortunate to get to speak with Mr. Emerson about the last few episodes of this creative and intense series, and he revealed: I think that the ending is really satisfying. And you do worry about that. You think, Well, what can they do? Samaritan has taken over the world. Were going to try to find a way for The Machine to do battle with it, but as you can see from the episodes that have already aired, its not looking that good. So, what cards have we left to play? It seems like a losing battle now. He said he enjoyed working with Mr. Caviezel these past five years Its been good, he told me. We made a good odd couple, because in real life we are an odd couple. We lucked out. You cant plan to have good chemistry among your actors, but we actually do. It was a good, odd chemistry. As for his plans, hes taking a welldeserved break. The one thing I cannot contemplate is going right back onto a network series. I want to mix it up a little bit recharge my battery and do some other kinds of things. Maybe do a play somewhere or get some guests spots. Play some odd, quirky character that I havent been able to do before. I would be happy to do a series that shot only 10 episodes a year. Then you would have seven or eight months to do other things, whatever you please. Ill just see what comes my way. Q: A while back, you mentioned a sequel to Trainspotting. Is that still happening? John T., via emailA: The Trainspotting sequel is officially a go, and production has already started. Original cast members Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremmer, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle are all returning, as well as director Danny Boyle. Right now the film is using the working title T2. Its loosely based on the book Porno by Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh. Write to Cindy Elavsky at King Features Weekly Service, 628 Virginia Drive, Orlando, FL 32803, or send an email to EMERSON

According to owner Ray Bozicnik, keeping hurricanes at bay this year is going to require an allhands effort since the tropics are eating through the alphabet at a record pace. It really is important for everyone to participate, he says. But did the Spam-ela Anderson sculpture of yesteryear make a dent? Did Spongebob Spam-Hands use those meaty paws for good, not evil? How effective is this bizarre observance? Weve found that if you consume Spam in your pajamas at night, not only does it help keep hurricanes away, it helps you rotate your spam so you dont end up with a 20-year-old can, Mr. Bozicnik says.Not only do Spammy Jammy guests realize that Spam is a versatile artistic medium, they also enjoy live music and random toilet paper races. Prizes for winning sculptures have yet to be determined, but theres a fair chance the victors will take home money or more Spam.We havent really considered (prizes) yet, but people mostly compete for prestige, Mr. Bozicnik explains. Little Bar & Restaurant is at 205 Harbour Drive in Goodland.

Summer Hours: 1-9 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 1-10 p.m. Saturday, 1-8 p.m. Sunday Online: cesibongelato The Scoop (literally): It was hot and humid. Id had a light lunch and wanted something sweet, but not too heavy and cold to get me through the afternoon. Sorbet sounded just right, and I knew exactly where to go. I headed south on U.S. 41 from the office and turned right into the Marketplace at Pelican Bay, where Cesibon is just south of SteinMart. Just like the gelato, which Ive enjoyed on numerous visits over the years, the sorbet at Cesibon is made right on the spot by owner Fabrice Monrazel. Unlike the gelato, the sorbet is dairyand fat-free, made only with fresh fruit, sugar and water. I opted for a scoop of mango, one of lemon and another of strawberry a tart, refreshing combination that looked as pretty in its pink-and-white polka-dot dish as it tasted. Cesibons signature waffle chip (also made on the spot) tucked into the top added a satisfying crunch, much like a cone would have. I headed back to work and made the best of the rest of the day, chilled out and feeling neither guilty nor too full. One More Thing: Cesibon has a full menu of toppings (mini-marshmallows, gummi bears, M&Ms, peanuts, toasted coconut, etc.) and special treatments (sundaes, shakes, banana splits and even crepes) should you want to turn your frozen confection into something fancy. You can also go home with a hand-packed pint or quart of your favorite flavor. Go ahead. Dont you deserve a treat?

C26 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 9-15, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY VINO Sampling of chiantis is highlight of exceptional VinExpo in Hong Kong Once a year, everybody whos anybody in the wine world gathers for a global industry trade show called VinExpo. This year, it was held in the magical world capital of Hong Kong. The dimensions of the event are, to put it mildly, overwhelming. Over 45,000 people flocked to Hong Kong to sample the wines of over 1,300 wineries and wine marketing associations. In addition to the thousands of wines on the expo floors, there were seminars and conducted tastings throughout the building. Did I make any discoveries? You bet. Now I just have to remember them. This event is not like a grand tasting where you stroll from table to table, enjoying a small pour at each. Not by a long shot. At VinExpo, the trade associations build booths the size of respectable houses, sit you down, and make you sample all the 15 or 20 wines from their region. Filthy work. The wines you remember are the wines you buy. More informative, though, are the master classes held throughout the three-day event. I especially enjoyed a blind tasting led by Jon Arvid Rosengren, who recently won the title of Worlds Best Sommelier. If you recall my last column, identifying wines blind is not one of my happiest talents, and this event was no exception. I was elated to nail the first wine, identifying it as a sauvignon blanc from the Loire. Things went straight downhill after that, as I got eight of the last nine completely wrong. (I came close on one of them). There was a lot to sample and a lot to learn over the three days. There was an excellent tasting of 10 top shelf California wines led by Karen MacNeil, who wrote The Wine Bible. If a writer has the guts to name a book The Wine Bible, she better know her stuff. Ms. MacNeil does. The big takeaway for me was a master class sampling of chiantis that recently have been given a new, higher quality designation by the Italian wine authorities. As you know, Italian wines are classified from lesser to greater quality, with the designations IGT, DOC and DOCG. (Never mind what they stand for). The new top-level designation is Gran Selezione, to distinguish what the district considers the best of the best. So if youd like to seek out what are now considered the very highest quality chiantis to go with your pizza and pasta, my favorite Gran Selezione wines included: Principe Corsini Don Tommaso GS, San Casciano Val di Pesa 2013 The Corsini family has been making wines for 1,000 years, so they know what theyre doing. The wine is 80 percent sangiovese and 20 percent merlot, with earthy notes and fresh black fruit on the nose. There are also typical aromas of violets and black tea leaves. A bit tight to start, there is plenty of red fruit on the palate. Id decant it for a couple of hours. Rocca delle Macie, Sergio Zingarelli CS, Castellina 2011 This was a lot more approachable, with 90 percent sangiovese and the rest a minor grape called colorino because it adds color. Its inky black in the glass but very smooth on the palate, with black fruit and a bit of vegetal flavor. Felsina Colonia GS, Castelnuovo Berardegna 2011 Castelnuovo is the southernmost town in the Chianti Classico region, so this wine is a bit riper all the way around. There are meaty, herbal notes and a strong taste of mineral in the mouth. A favorite. And heres one a bit off the wall: Grace Vineyard Tasyas Reserve Chardonnay 2011 We bought this wine in the duty-free shop in Hong Kong airport, only to discover that it was not made by Grace Family Vineyards in California, but by someone named Grace in Shanxi, which is about 300 kilometers southwest of Beijing. The nose is round, fragrant and buttery, with strong but not overwhelming aromas of oak and apricot. The apricot and peach follow through on the palate with a very pleasant, soft finish. Wed buy this again, next time were in China. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer. He is Creative Director of Greenfield Advertising Group.

CUISINE NEWSCount on Coconut Jacks for offseason eating in Bonita A couple of months ago, I made the foolish assumption that Id be able to drop in for a midweek dinner at Coconut Jacks Waterfront Grille, a restaurant on Bonita Beach Road. We couldnt even get near the parking lot. Restaurant after restaurant on this food-rich road approaching Bonita Beach had diners lined up outside their doors. Now? Not so much. Last week, we stopped in at Antica Trattoria, a charming little Italian place that opened in November, but it was closing for the summer within a matter of days. We were the only party in the place. Just down the road a bit, A Table Apart seemed ripe for a revisit, but then we found out that chef-owner Jeff Acol is closing up after this week and will return in August. Coconut Jacks, thankfully, is not taking a break during the slower summer months, which is the smartest time for locals to venture down this well-traveled road. Its been five years since the owners g utted the former Vincenzos on the Bay and transformed this prime piece of real estate into a casual, tropical-themed restaurant replete with tiki figures and a screened chickee hut outside the main dining room. Despite the already-stifling heat and humidity, we headed for that screened deck because the view of the back bay is expansive and incomparable. With an abundance of fans circulating air under the palm-thatched roof, it was surprisingly comfortable. Cold drinks were quick to arrive and revive. Jacks Cucumber Basil Martini ($10.90), made with vodka, muddled cucumbers and simple syrup, was icy cold and nicely infused with basil flavor. A Golden Anejo margarita ($12) with a Grand Marnier floater was equally refreshing and fruity. Draft beers are few and mostly mass market surprisingly in this ale-enlightened era but more craft brews are available by the bottle. With appetizers in the relatively pricey range of $11.95-$15.95, you might want to share them or make a lighter meal by sampling a few instead of ordering entrees, which can cost up to twice as much. Sandwiches of pulled pork, grouper or lobstercrab cakes are another option if you want to keep costs down. We started with the lobster and shrimp ceviche and tequila oysters Rockefeller (each $15.95). The former, laced with a thin tomato dressing rather than the usual tart citrus juice, was a pretty loose interpretation of ceviche. (The waiter wisely warned us of this.) It had lots of chopped lobster and cocktail shrimp with diced onion and fresh cilantro and a dollop of smashed avocado, but the dominant taste was tomato and horseradish (think watered-down cocktail sauce). It might be more accurate to call it seafood gazpacho or shellfish cocktail. The tequila oysters Rockefeller, on the other hand, were spot-on. A half-dozen plump oysters were topped with spinach, bacon, Asiago cheese sauce and a thinly sliced jalapeno spiked with tequila. Under the broiler, the cheese melted and caramelized to a beautiful golden brown while the oysters were just heated through. The chili visible under the cheese added a good kick of heat. This was a clever and delectable twist on a traditional dish. The appetizers had arrived quickly, and used plates were swiftly removed by any server who happened to pass the table. Thats a good work ethic and reflects well on the training of the staff. My only quibble with the service was that water glasses were not refilled which on a steamy night is more noticeable than usual. Weve had some of the sandwiches before, including the rightfully popular mambo mahi tacos and the grouper sandwich, so we decided to dive into the full entrees this time. The BBQ baby back ribs ($22.95) tempted me with the description of roasted pineapple chipotle barbecue sauce. I would have liked a tad more chipotle smokiness in that sauce, but it nevertheless had layers of flavor, with notes of sweetness, tang, tomato and molasses. It was a full rack of meaty ribs, with crisp edges and tender interiors, and the meat slid easily off the bones. All in all, they were much better than we expected in a seafood-centric restaurant. When it comes to barbecue plates, sides are almost as important as the cue, so it was disappointing to be served barely warm sweet potato fries and mushy, bland cole slaw. Sides served with the stuffed gulf grouper ($32.95) also were a mixed bag. The sauted summer squash, broccoli and carrots were tender-crisp and flavorful, but the Creole rice wasnt especially noteworthy. This dish sounded good on paper: grouper with lobster and crab stuffing, Asiago cheese and panko crust draped with mango beurre blanc. The execution, though, wasnt quite as impressive. My dining companion and I arrived at the same conclusion independently: It was dry. Maybe too much crumb topping? Not enough of that sweet, fruity sauce? Either way, not as good as it should have been. If youre inclined to skip dessert, youll miss a truly remarkable coconut cream pie ($6.95) with a fluffy, almost cheesecake-like filling and toasted shredded coconut garnish (made down the road at Dollys Produce Patch & Eatery). Theres also a solid rendition of Key lime pie ($6.95) with a drizzling of sweet mango sauce to contrast the tartness (made by Sweet Melissas Ice Cream Shoppe a confectionary offshoot by Coconut Jacks owner Melissa Floyd, not to be confused with Sweet Melissas Caf on Sanibel Island). Dining options ebb and flow in this highly seasonal community, but its good to know there are year-rounders like Coconut Jacks where you can enjoy drinks or dinner with a view after the snowbirds depart.

YOUR GUIDE TO NEW HOME COMMUNITIES IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA Robb & Stuckys Susan J. Bleda, ASID and Rachelle Porco are creating the interior for the Seaglass 804 tower residence model, one of three furnished models The Ronto Group will be presenting at the 26-floor, 120-unit Seaglass high-rise tower under construction within Bonita Bay. The models will include finishes on display at the Seaglass Design Studio located at the Seaglass Sales Center at 26951 Country Club Drive in Bonita Bay. Rontos Finishing Touches Program allows future residents to select their new homes flooring, cabinetry, countertops, door hardware, plumbing fixtures, and paint colors. Future residents may also specify finishes from other sources. With construction underway, opportunities to select finishes will become progressively limited. Situated nearly 250 feet from its closest neighboring building, Seaglass will feature fully-completed, ready for occupancy residences with premium finishes, including flooring, paint, and trim. Each residence will come with two protected access under-building parking spaces. Private enclosed two-car garages will be available. Three tower residence great room floor plans at Seaglass range from 2,889 to 3,421 square feet and are priced from just over $1 million. One remaining penthouse residence at Seaglass is priced from $2.9 million and offers approximately 4,600 square feet. The spacious 3,088 square feet 804 tower residence floor plan includes three bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths, a den, an open great room, dining area, and island kitchen, terrace space totaling 485 square feet, and a private elevator foyer. Bleda and Porcos design will exude sophistication while providing an exceptional level of livability. Set against a background wall tone of soft sandy bisque, their color palette will include light creams and whites. Muted accents of frosted glass will be layered with matte gold and silver metallics. Furnishings will be clean lined with fabrics that include leather against cotton and linen. Upon exiting the elevator into the private lobby, the sandy tones, natural woods, and lustrous surfaces will evoke a sense of being beachside. A high-backed shelter sofa upholstered in a bisque fabric will be set against faux-finished walls that display clear glass beads reminiscent of bubbles rising from the water. In the wide foyer, a long side wall will accommodate a putty c olored console table and a stylish wall-mounted mirror. An area rug will add a layer of texture. The foyer opens to the expansive great room, dining room, and kitchen with breathtaking views through sliding glass doors onto a spacious terrace. In the living area, a dramatic 10-foot wide fireplace will be installed within a built-out section of wall adorned with glistening wallpaper. On either side of the fireplace, thick glass shelving with the look of seaglass will be lighted from above to create bright display space that can also be muted for softer mood lighting. Two sofas perpendicular to the fireplace will be upholstered in bisque linen. Accent pillows will provide textured contrast while maintaining tone-on-tone elegance. Two easy chairs will face the fireplace, while in the center of the grouping a 60 x 60-inch cocktail table will make a statement with its heavy glass top evoking an affinity with seaglass and the sea shore. To highlight the adjacent dining area, Bleda and Porco have designed a striking rectangular ceiling structure with recessed lighting and tiered layers. An eye-catching chandelier will illuminate a rectangular dining table with seating for eight. A buffet console will stand against a wall with a matte metallic finish. The contemporary L-shaped kitchen will feature a counter-height island. Counter stools in a matte gold finish will be upholstered in a shimmery bisque leather while distinctive pendant lighting will showcase interesting glass designs. Light-toned finishes will be selected for the perimeter and island cabinetry with complementary light counter surfaces. Many of the cabinets will feature frosted glass fronts. The bisque color scheme will continue on the terrace. Bleda and Porco have selected a wicker furniture in neutral tones offering both style and comfort. The space will allow for designated dining and lounging areas, with room for a summer kitchen. The glistening water view will feel like a natural extension of the beauty inside. A hallway leads to the den and two guest suites that open to another wide terrace at the front of the building. The multi-purpose den will offer a relaxed retreat space that can function as an office, a separate lounging area, or as an additional bedroom. The plan calls for light-toned built-in cabinetry across an entire wall with interconnected lighted shelving and a spacious desk. An armchair and ottoman will be grouped with a sleeper sofa. In the master suite, the neutral wall tones will deepen slightly by way of contrast. Bleda and Porco will continue the seaglass motif in this serene private retreat by artfully incorporating Lucite into the design. A contemporary four poster bed will command attention with a unique combination of Lucite and a matte gold metallic finish. The effect will be solid and stylish and enhanced by a fabulous arrangement of linens. On either side of the bed, the nightstands will showcase a blend of white and mirrored finishes while the tall dresser will be entirely mirrored to reflect the natural light from the large window and sliding glass doors that lead onto the terrace. A hallway past his and her closets leads to the master bathroom where the design will include sea sponges, shells, and a background of stunning wall paper.

High-rise residences with Gulf views selling quickly at Kalea BayClubhouse also under constructionSince it was first announced, Kalea Bay, a gated, resortlifestyle community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, has set a new standard for luxury residential high-rise living. The incredibly-designed residences at Kalea Bay, combined with spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico, the Cocohatchee River and a pristine nature preserve, have propelled the community to become one of the hottest-selling properties this year. As of early June, our first tower with 120 luxury residences, is 70 percent sold, stated Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales & Marketing. The 22-story tower will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. At the current time, construction crews are working on the towers 16th floor, which is helping buyers see the value of purchasing now. From my office in the sales center I can observe on a daily basis the construction progress, said Wilson. Its not only exciting for me, but also for those whove already purchased and even the visitors who have come to the sales center for the first time. Six floor plans are available at Kalea Bay with prices currently starting at $1.3 million. Residences 1 and 6 are 4-bedroom/4-bath 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-foot 2-inch high ceilings and wood floors throughout. The custom kitchens have Wolf and Subzero appliances, a natural gas range, Downsview cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island. Our kitchens feature an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for todays hosts and hostesses, said Wilson. The layout of the kitchen can be experienced firsthand through a replica of one in our sales center. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve, stated Wilson. That means all of our residents have front row seats for our spectacular sunsets. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling 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. Wilson says dramatic views are available to every single resident, not matter which floor they live on. Thats because the towers amenities are located on the rooftop, explained Wilson. That includes our sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the open-air fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and the beaches. Those beaches include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally in 2015, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9. The first residential high-rise tower at Kalea Bay will be completed in the summer of next year. However, it wont be the only building on-site to reach that milestone. Currently, Kalea Bays community clubhouse area is also under construction and slated to be completed around the same timeframe. Our clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of Kalea Bay, said Wilson. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance and is currently under construction. The clubhouse will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Wilson. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. We have the perfect place for all three, said Wilson. The indoor/outdoor restaurant will serve phenomenal meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Just a short walk from the clubhouse will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts. Nearby are 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity many of our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Wilson. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the on-site sales center. It is located on Vanderbilt Drive, just north of Wiggins Pass Road at 13910 Old Coast Road in North Naples. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at Above: All master bedrooms offer views of the Gulf of Mexico.

Ronto and MHK Architecture and Planning redesigned the Phase I Franklin plan to create enhanced space sequences in the Fenwick that offer an exceptional level of livability. The twostory great room ceiling in the Franklin was replaced by a 10-foot ceiling in the Fenwick to allow the creation of additional space in the upstairs flex room and the second floor outdoor living room. At the same time, the depth of the great room was increased by four feet. The Fenwicks enlarged flex room can easily accommodate a sectional sofa, a media center, and a pool table. The space now has six panels of pocketing sliders that fully open to the 23 x 14-feet outdoor living room. A powder bath was also added on the second floor. The second floor owners bedroom and guest bedroom both open to the outdoor living room and to Juliette balconies. Base-priced at $845,000, the 1,698 square feet under air Phase III Biltmore floor plan is based on the 1,529 square feet Phase I Ballard plan.

The two-bedroom plus den Biltmore plan offers the possibility of owning a beautifully finished Naples pied-a-terre literally just minutes from downtowns dining, shopping, and entertainment attractions.

The great room, owners bedroom, and guest bedroom all open to the terrace. The owners suite includes double walk-in closets and a bath with a glass-enclosed shower and his and her vanities. Ronto and MHK enlarged the width of the Biltmores great room, kitchen, and terrace by two feet, an enhancement that will contribute to the exceptional livability of the homes core living areas. The enlarged width also allowed Ronto to increase the number of glass slider panels opening to the terrace from four to six, a step that provides the residence with additional natural light while enhancing the views of the courtyard. An additional foot of depth was included in the new terrace design. Taken in combination with its increased width, the additional depth resulted in the 20% overall increase in the terrace square footage. A full wall of cabinetry was added to the kitchen design and is now standard in all Biltmore residences. The re-design also resulted in a significant increase in the size of the owners bedroom. It now measures 15 x 15-feet, a full 225 square feet of sleeping quarters. To enhance the owners bedrooms natural light and view, a third panel of glass was added to the window.

2 LUXE LIVING JUNE 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLY A native of New Jersey, Joan Simonsen-Hickok found her love of beautiful furniture and interiors at an early age. She enjoyed weekly antique shopping excursions along Madison Avenue in New York with her Uncle Henry, a wellknown dealer and collector. She grew that passion to lead her own design firm and went on to be published nationally heralding her sophisticated projects throughout Florida. At Naples-based Simonsen-Hickok Interiors, she heads a talented group of professionals, including her daughter Wendi, who work seamlessly together to bring the firms design projects to fruition. Q: How would you describe your design style, your aesthetic? A: My designs are not based on trends. Instead, I focus on the architecture and draw inspiration from the classics, updating them for current lifestyles. Every project I undertake is an ongoing collaboration with my clients who have graciously welcomed me into their lives. Their interiors ultimately become a reflection of their lives. My designs are not about me My early role models were Elsie de Wolfe, whose spunky stripes were Americas first introduction to the rationality of modernism, and Sister Parish, who was known for her genteel comfortable rooms. Q: How do you think interior design affects the client for whom you have completed a project? A: When done well, interior design has the capacity to affect human beings both emotionally and intellectually My clients call me at all hours because we have forged that type of relationship wherein they rely on my guidance and expertise to navigate them through this JOANSIMONSENHICKOKDESIGNER Q&A d e I n a n up E v i n ha l i v a a r e l st ti o a n h e d y h b SEE Q&A, PAGE 4 helps clients discover what they can live withThe conservatory walls are finished to look like a centuries-old palazzo left untouched.

8 LUXE LIVING JUNE 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLYMAKEOVER BY LINDA DONNELLYlinda.donnelly@ oridaweekly.comThe home was always lovely to begin with, but over time, it needed updates and modernizing, proclaims the lady of this home. A great many homeowners are discovering a new love for their current spaces and are opting to stay put and renovate rather than buy something else and move. Its an attractive option, especially with the right team of design and construction professionals who have the vision and talent to navigate the process with skill and precision. After moving to Naples full time in 2012, this couple soon realized that while the footprint of their home was ideal, the circa 1999 design had become dated. They had worked with Michael Scott of Romanza Interior Design on previous home design projects and looked no further for this makeover, which took place over four months last summer. Many of our clients have been living in the same community and the same home or condo for quite a while, says David Valladarez, director of London Bays renovation and design division. A lot of them will go out and look for a new home and then realize they actually love where they already live. Their community has become part of who they are, but their lifestyle has changed, and their home no longer suits their needs. An open flow throughout the main living is on the forefront of every homeowner today, as they begin to see that their guests enjoy congregating together in a more centralized manner. Gone are the days when the kitchen was offlimits and guests were segregated in a formal area. Now we all want to be together. And in the spirit of togetherness, most modern homeowners want their kitchen, dining and living spaces opened up significantly. This project is a perfect illustration of this concept. There was only one way in or out from the kitchen to the dining room. So opening that up gave us the circulation that we needed. Plus, I never even used the dining room before because it was just inconvenient to get there, the homeowner says, echoing what is one of the most common complaints from homeowners seeking renovations to an older property. Opening another wall/doorway and creating the right flow is exactly what was needed here to enhance added enjoyment. Adding to the modernization of the floorplan and decor, the homeowners enlisted Ralf Unruh of Total Automation Solutions to completely digitize their music, security and lighting controls. No more multi-switch light panels cl uttering up every wall. Now, each room has Lutron lighting and a wall-mounted Savant system iPad to control and integrate all of those systems. According to the gentleman of the home, Back when we first looked for this property, there were only five or six places available. I told the real estate lady I really have to have a great floor plan, and every place she took me, she said, This is the best floor plan in the community. I said, Yeah, OK. When she came over as a guest after we got all this fixed up, she said, Now, this is the best floor plan in the community!

10 LUXE LIVING JUNE 2016 FLORIDA WEEKLYCOVER STORY BY LINDA DONNELLYlinda.donnelly@ oridaweekly.comNestled within the private neighborhood of Port Royal, the enclave called Little Harbour has 32 beautiful homes on 25 acres. A gated, single-family oasis exemplifies the Naples luxury home industry at its most exclusive and serene. When Jon Kukk and Claudio Almeida of Kukk Architecture & Design joined forces with A. Vernon Allen Builder and W Design, the result was nothing short of spectacular. This home reflects a balance between traditional and transitional style, strongly influenced by West Indies architecture, says Mr. Kukk. The simple layout gives the homeowner privacy from the street and maximizes the water views from the back of the house. And the clean symmetrical lines and proportions create an inviting presence as you approach the house, he adds. According to the homeowner, the whole experience of creating this beautiful, comfortable home was pleasurable. Jon Kukk and his team were very professional, she says, adding, His engaging personality and ability to collaborate with all involved helped to streamline the entire project. TOUR FACTORY / COURTESY PHOTOSThe influence of West Indies architecture is apparent in this design by Kukk Architecture & Design. Built by A. Vernon Allen Builder, the front exterior features kerf corner columns, decorative rafter tails and beams together with Bahamian blue shutters.A West Indies beauty delights its new owners and the neighborhood Waterfront On The


The open layout of the 5,000-squarefoot, four-bedroom, 4-bath home is one that many homeowners desire today. With large windows, 18-foot sliders and eight sets of French doors, the views are always front and center. Due to the large amount of glass facing south, the house has a bright, airy feel throughout and the essence of a seaside retreat. Intricate details with cypress wood such as kerf corner columns, decorative rafter tails and beams together with the Bahamian blue shutters b alance the white exterior of the house, says Mr. Almeida. Only the top-quality construction detail is evident throughout this home, thanks to the project management of Ryan Benson, principal of A. Vernon Allen. Project manager Evan Weaver of A. Vernon Allen describes the extensive details, materials and systems within the house as including a whole-house water filtration system, Sub-Zero, Wolf, Bosch and Miele appliances, and Harmon Hinge doors. The homes all-concrete construction provides the most solid foundation for Floridas elements. The windows are hurricane-rated and fully waterproofed, and the rear terraces are enclosed with automated shutters and screens. A consistent visual throughout is the stunning bleached black walnut wood flooring from the Antonietta collection of the La Famiglia line provided by Legno Bastone Wide Plank Flooring. Tiffany Guido, vice president and fifth-generation owner, says the flooring was created and fabricated by European artisans using French white oak to age gracefully and require the least amount of maintenance. Energy efficiency was also a top consideration, and the fully enclosed attic, insulated glass and professionally engineered mechanical systems all achieve that goal, says Mr. Benson. He adds, We were fortunate to be able to construct this home with a client who appreciated quality and style, and work with a design team that was second to none. This was the first time A. Vernon Allen worked with Wendy Berry, principal of W Design Interiors, and the results made both companies proud. There were several meetings with both teams. They worked side-by-side with the architect to combine the exterior detail with the interior styling for a cohesive design. According to Ms. Berry, The directives were to keep the interior design beach casual, while maintaining a modern, yet transitional space. This coastal chic vibe is best illustrated in the spectacular kitchen/dining/family space that is central to the home and most dramatic in regard to the finish detail. The kitchen cabinetry has Shaker-style uppers and slatted wood bases, which keep the overall style casual and yet still elegant. W Designs decor creates many memory points within the home. The master baths tile juxtaposed with the wood built-in cabinetry is one of Ms. Berrys favorite design details, as is the pools mosaic tile. I also love the fireplace in the grand salon, marrying the antiqued smoke glass mirror with the walnut panel surround, she says. All these elements played off the water views and capitalized on the homeowners affinity for cool, beachy colors inside and out. Contemporary Bermuda and Caribbean are two of the architectural styles accepted in the stringent Little Harbour architectural code. This team worked The coastal casual design of the interiors is a constant throughout, yet the home maintains a modern, transitional vibe. Bleached black walnut wood from Legno Bastone Wide Plank Flooring serves as a foundation for the homes palette of soft blues, whites and creams. The juxtaposition of the natural wood and the honed marbles and tiles featured in the kitchen and bath areas is a favorite memory point of the interior designer, Wendy Berry.COVER STORY FLORIDA WEEKLY JUNE 2016 LUXE LIVING 11SEE WATERFRONT, PAGE 12


closely together to follow the guidelines, offering several layout options early on in the process to address the clients wishes. Since there is a 5,000-square-foot maximum under air limit for homes in Little Harbour, the layout had to be efficient. The final result is a beautiful success on so many levels, illustrating just how important great teamwork can be and just how rewarding it is for all involved. The happy homeowner concludes: Everyone worked closely with us to understand our style of living, our tastes and our priorities. Our beautiful home is the result. A.

Even though they do not provide installation services, their strong trade partnerships and relationships means they can refer you to the best plumbers in Southwest Florida. They have working displays, including a working shower that features several types of rain heads, shower heads, hand showers and body sprays. In addition, a working kitchen sink features the newest technology available in kitchen faucets and accessories. There are stunning bathroom vanities on display from a variety of manufacturers that can be customized to suit specific needs. As a Toto dealer, they even stock a variety of Toto toilet repair parts as well as shower heads, hand showers, and hoses. They can also order most repair parts for faucets and fixtures from most any manufacturer. But seemingly, the pride and joy of Naples Plumbing Studio, the jewel in the crown, is the free-standing tub. Lisa Roosevelt actually takes great joy in showing off the MTI Juliet soaking tub in the showrooms front-and-center display window. The 72-by-36-inch tub is both edgy and graceful with its organic design and fluid lines that flow asymmetrically in counterpoint. If any tub can be sexy, this is it (but if this ones not for you, there are numerous other soaking tubs on display for inspection and consideration). There is something for every budget here, too, even those who want to break the bank and go overboard. This mother-and-daughter team really brings a whole new shopping experience to the world of plumbing. Both are active in the Interior Design Society and the Decorative Plumbing & Hardware Association. Perhaps the Roosevelts motto says it all: Discover the only plumbing studio in town where old-time customer service meets cutting-edge expertise.
