Some people might be better designed to look at the future than others prophets or wizards, for example. But we dont know any of those. Here instead, Florida Weekly offers the voices of officials, former officials and private citizens, of men and women who have been participants, activists or impassioned observers of growth and change in northern Collier County and the south Lee communities of Bonita Springs and Estero. We asked our prognosticators this question: What will these communities look like in the year 2030? That point in time is arbitrary: far enough away to allow for some significant change in opportunities for residents, as well as in what they see and experience; far enough away by that time to expect a reasonable look at how the 21st century is really shaping up; and close enough to get to for many of us. Demographers estimate the numbers will have changed, of course. Roughly 1 million people could inhabit Lee County as a whole, with another 430,000 in Collier a total of almost 400,000 more residents than now live in the two counties. And that means more housing, more roads, more infrastructure of other types, more services in general and a greater need for water. Here are a few of their comments, abridged for length. Ben Nelson, a lifelong Bonita Springs resident who spent eight years on the city council and eight years as mayor: Fifteen years ago, we had been a city for a year. So 2030, only 14 years How might northern Collier and southern Lee counties look in 2030?The crystal ballwww.FloridaWeekly.com Vol. VIII, No. 34 FREEWEEK OF JUNE 16-22, 2016 Download our FREE App todayAvailable on the iTunes and Android App Store.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 16-22, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY 7200 Trail Boulevard, Naples, (239) 598-3330 | Other locations in Ft. Myers, Sarasota, Tarpon Springs and Pinellas Park | matterbrothersfurniture.com COMMENTARYThe very pleasant PeasantvilleAmericans and Floridians, Republicans and Democrats, cowboys and Indians all should now rethink the wealth problem our nation faces, a problem tantamount to dangerous black ice on a winter highway. Its lying out there mostly unseen right in the middle of our road, a deadly detriment to the healthy progress of society. The problem is this: Less than 1 percent of Americans hold as much wealth as the bottom 90 percent, economists say. If the rest of us cant join the 1 percent in their clubhouse if we peasants cant also drink Armand de Brignac Brut Rose by the six pack like other people drink Budweiser, but at $10,000 a bottle then maybe we can convince the rich guys to join us down here in the very pleasant Peasantville, instead. They could come to our club, in other words, instead of us going to theirs. Compelling evidence suggests that such a trend has already begun. And we have Donald Trump to thank for it. It started in January when Mr. Trump walked into the Red Arrow Diner in Manchester, N.H., and ordered lunch. Born into extravagant wealth and accustomed to flying 1-percenter style home to sleep in his own gold-and-marble bedroom after a hard day of campaigning, he had decided to spend the night near the diner. And eat there. The Red Arrow is a nice place if youre a peasant. They serve three squares and dessert 24-7, starting with a breakfast so big, it takes two plates, according to the menu. But when a billionaire sidles in and slaps his fat rear end into a seat to order a hamburger and fries, anything can happen. And it did. Maybe it was simply that The Donald didnt just order the Dinahmoe Burger for $10.99, advertised as Two of Our FreeForm, Fresh Ground Beef Burgers, Lettuce, Tomato, Bacon, Cheese and Thousand Island Dressing On a Triple Decker Roll, Served with Fries. Maybe it was the fact that he also threw in a lie. First, he ordered a macaroni-and-cheese ball and a Diet Coke to go with the cheeseburger. Then he began fabricating. He said it was his favorite food. Sure it is, Donny. You grew up eating mac-and-cheese just like us peasants, right? A woman named Jane wasnt having any of it. So before storming out of the Red Arrow in a fit of anger, she confronted the Don. Enjoy your burger, racist! she shouted, referring to Trumps proposed Mexican-border wall and Muslim-restriction policies. Sometimes my fellow peasants embarrass me. I think Jane (so reported by the Guardian as the enraged woman) was way too hard on Mr. Trump, even though she was unquestionably correct in her estimation of him. Sure, Jane, hes a racist, a poor humble patriot pontificator on the Hate Highway just trying to find a better American way. To be one of us. To be anything other than the rich troglodyte he clearly is. So he knocked on our Peasantville door. He asked if there was one more burger at the Inn. For him. Just one. With a mac-andcheese ball and a diet Coke. And you treat him this way? But that was then. The Donald survived and went on to some other diners. Miss Katies Diner in Milwaukee, for example, where his choices included meatloaf on the blue plate special, with mashed potatoes, fresh vegetables and homemade gravy accompanied by soup or salad, or coleslaw and fresh Italian. Im telling you its nice in Peasantville. Others are finding out the 1 percent. Somehow, we must be working our peasant magic on these rich guys. They keep trying to join our club. This could save society. Take Francis Rooney, a Neapolitan 1-percenter (that means he lives in Naples) with undergraduate and law degrees from Georgetown University who now aims to step into the rather large shoes of U.S. Rep. Curt Clawson, the District 19 Republican who likely would have been a shoo-in for another term until he announced he was through with Congress, and sticking with his father, who is elderly. Mr. Rooney, says a friend of mine who never gets anything wrong, has donated close to $10 million to presidential campaigns, been awarded an ambassador post to The Vatican, lives in a place in Port Royal that could pass as an art museum (never mind the property value), runs a company estimated in the billions of dollars, etc. etc. and he just announced his first press event at MELS DINER?????!!!!!?????!!!!! Yep, Mels Diner on the southwest coast where you can order Mels Meatloaf, baked fresh daily and served with natural beef gravy homemade soup and salad (and) your choice of Mels mashed potatoes, Sun Coast rice pilaf, natural cut Idaho French fries, and seasonal vegetables, all for $9.99. Mr. Rooney will compete for the congressional seat with fellow Republican Chauncey Goss, son of former U.S. Rep. and CIA chief Porter Goss, perhaps a more moderate diner-shiner who has Washington experience as an administrator, and a reputation for trying to clean up water, like Rep. Clawson. But apparently Mr. Rooney is one of us, the peasants. Francis Rooney is a businessman, not a politician, a recent advertisement announces. Rooney is from the construction industry, where hes created thousand of jobs. As a construction man, he probably knows how to swing a hammer. And eat meatloaf from the blue plate special. His ad says he will cut spending, repeal Obamacare and protect life and our Second Amendment rights. Could he mean the right to be bat-spit crazy, get an assault rifle and shoot up the place if the cooks start kissing or the meatloaf is bad? Francis Rooney will fight the fights that must be won, the ad concludes. As opposed to the fights that are going to be lost. Like getting a bottle of Armand de Brignac Brut Rose to go with your macand-cheese ball. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

In a petition to the English department, Yale undergraduates declare that a required two-semester seminar on major English poets is a danger to their well-being. Never mind that the offending poets, Shakespeare, Chaucer, Donne, Milton, Wordsworth, et al., are the foundational writers in the English language. Its as if chemistry students objected to learning the periodic table. The root of the plaint against the seminar is, of course, the usual PC beancounting, where prodigious talents who have stood the test of time and explore the deepest questions about what it means to be human are found wanting. The petition whines that a year spent around a seminar table where the literary contributions of women, people of color, and queer folk are absent actively harms all students, regardless of their identity. This is a variation on the widespread belief on campus that unwelcome speech is tantamount to a physical threat. In this case, the speech happens to be some of the most eloquent words written in the English language. One can only pity the exceedingly fragile sensibility it takes to feel assaulted by, say, Lines Composed a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey. The petitions implicit contention is that the major poets are too circumscribed by their race and gender to speak to todays socially aware students, when, in point of fact, it is the students who are too blinkered by race and gender to marvel at great works of art. The poet Maya Angelou said in a lecture once that as a child she thought, Shakespeare must be a black girl. It was because, growing up in the Jim Crow South, a victim of unspeakable abuse, Sonnet 29 spoke so powerfully to her. Yales petitioners must consider Toni Morrison a traitor to her race and gender. She had an argument with a theater director years ago in which she defended Othello, and went on to write a production based on Desdemona, the plays doomed female character. Or how about Derek Walcott, whom a Yale professor sympathetic to the petitioners suggests adding to the required course? He told The Guardian newspaper a few years ago it would be absurd to say, Dont read Shakespeare because he was white. Anyone reading widely in the English canon will encounter supremely talented female, black and gay writers. In fact, many other Yale courses feature them. But the creative stream began with so-called dead white males. It is because of their genius that their words transcend their time and place, giving us phrases, characters and stories that are still vital today. An official description of the major English poets seminar says the classes seek to create a heightened curiosity about the way language works, as well as a confidence in engaging with historically and formally diverse literary texts. This is a reasonable enough academic goal unless the students involved are willfully incapable of curiosity or confidence. There is an easy solution to the dilemma of the aggrieved petitioners: They shouldnt study English, or anything else that might challenge their absurdly small-minded ideological hobbyhorses. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINIONShow me the moneyThe announcement by Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett created quite a stir when it was made back in 2010. The two billionaire families jointly launched a campaign called the Giving Pledge. Its purpose was to inspire wealthy people like themselves to pony up big bucks for charitable causes. Only two things were required of those seeking membership in this exclusive club: You must be worth at least $1 billion and you must be willing to give half of it away. The rest is easy. The choice of when to give is left up to those making the pledge. They can write the checks during their lifetimes, enjoying their giving while they are living, or accomplish the task in the closet-cleaning that occurs on vacating Gods waiting room. Buffett and Gates seem not to want to make too big a deal out of something they reason is relatively uncomplicated. Pledge participants make a moral rather than contractual commitment. The philanthropic principles the pledge embodies are self-reinforcing. The integrity of the signatories is its own guarantee. The pledge is a codicil to a donors legacy for which only they are accountable. They commit to living a life measured not by what they have, but by what they give. Meanwhile, the super rich are enjoying a modern Gilded Age. They can afford the price of admission. Ray Russolillo writes in Private Wealth Matters that using the Forbes list of the Worlds Billionaires provides Buffett and Gates with 1,121 probable prospects. They are working it. Russolillo says that at the most recent count, 154 individuals and/or couples from 16 countries have made the pledge, representing net worth of more than $750 billion. Of this total, 124 are in U.S. households with a combined net worth of more than $502 billion. Sixty-one of the families holding the bulk of the assets pledged are in just four states (California, New York, Washington and Nevada). Only six of Floridas super rich are signed up. Donald Trump, arguably one of Floridas most famous billionaires, is not among them. Trump was asked on NBCs Meet the Press why he had not joined with fellow billionaires in signing the pledge. He replied he was a little bit old-fashioned and ... opposed to selling everything and giving it away. I make lots of big contributions. I like that better. Trump is consistent about doing what is good for Trump as a guiding principle. He exploits philanthropic opportunities using the same cynical calculus that is characteristic of his business deals. To wit, the objective of the wolf is to always eat its prey. But recently, Trump fell victim to his own conceit that if he says something, it therefore must be true except when it is not, or the veracity of his claims is questionable. When Trump went presidential, he polished up his philanthropic creds, claiming to have made $102 million in personal contributions over the past five years to various nonprofits. He headlined a media circus earlier this year when he opted to do a fundraiser for veterans groups instead of participating in a Republican primary debate. At the event, Trump announced he had raised $6 million to contribute to veterans groups, which included his own personal donation of $1 million. The Washington Post replied, Show me the money. The paper launched an investigation to verify his public statements. It found none of the $102 million in contributions claimed by Trump were actually made with his own money. The checks were written by the Donald J. Trump Foundation, which bears his name but to which he contributes infrequently. It is in majority funded by third-party donors. Why would someone give millions to a private foundation that has somebody elses fingerprints all over it? The Clintons are being asked the same question. On the continuum of giving, Trumps philanthropy consists in majority of charitable foreplay characterized by the absence of actual cash changing hands. They are philanthropic transactions tied to Trumps business that create reciprocity between grantor and grantee. The Post inventory of this category of foundation grants included ,900 gratis rounds of golf, 175 hotel stays, 165 meals and 11 spa gift certificates. Call it inkind booty, cause-related marketing, or a charitable marriage of mutual convenience; but transcendent philanthropy it is not unless a billionaires philanthropic life well-lived equals donating rounds of golf to poor people. As for the Trump fundraiser for veterans groups, the check is in the mail defense did not provide cover to explain away, four months after the event, the conflicting accounts Trump and his staff gave of money raised and distributions made. No canceled check verified the personal gift was completed of the $1 million pledged by Trump to veterans. Whats $1 million to a billionaire? Money for the weekend. Overripe claims of generosity create an odor all their own. When evidenced in philanthropy, it is called failing to pass the sniff test. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

PARADE OF HOMES WINNER!FSPA MEMBER / CPC 1457280 WaterscapesPools.com ROOTED IN NAPLESA semi-welcome arrival chews her way into this Moms heart Our new dog, a beautiful Springer spaniel pup named Jessie, has proven capable of many things since we brought her home last month, still developing paw-eye coordination notwithstanding. Being a licensed Cat Lady, Id forgotten how much time, attention and household items a puppy could cycle through in a day. Heres a short list of things Jessie has destroyed in four weeks: Things we used to love: My favorite high heels My second favorite pair of high heels A vial of zit paste 187 Legos of various shapes, sizes and characters Four toy soldiers Five rolls of toilet paper The living room carpet Ear buds A phone charger A printer cord A pair of boys sneakers One girls sandal Contraband Tupperware from a lunchbox A lunchbox A piano leg A standard-issue, well-loved copy of Steinbecks Of Mice and Men Now I feel totally justified for not wanting a dog in the first place, though she is slowly cr eeping up to the cats for a place in my heart. I resent it. Her soft mouth and liquid brown eyes, her sweet demeanor and persistent cat chasing are crystallizing into a personality I might love soon, if I didnt have to constantly pull inedibles out of her mouth. Here a list of items from this week that required me to dive in: Undigestible items we need (or love): Zip-Loc bags Vegetable peeler (?) One earring Sunscreen stick An expensive hairbrush that I NEED VERY MUCH Styrofoam from a pool noodle A mystery metal bracket (over and over again) A dead lizard When my son and daughter each brought up how empty they felt inside without a slobbering pooch to call their own, I laughed. When my husband jumped on board, I was aghast. Do they realize how much time, attention and resources they require themselves? Why are they ganging up on me? A low-maintenance personality is the low bar I set for personal relationships, and despite my best efforts, all three of the people I live with have a difficult time hitting the target. Adding a dog no, a puppy to the mix was an affront to my delicate sensibilities. Housebreaking and socialization are skills Im still working on with my kids almost a decade after they arrived, and now a puppy? But Im a sucker for an expert whine and a delicately timed baby photo, so when my husband sent me photo number one, above, I knew this dog was happening. Weve been married long enough that I can spot a losing battle from quite a distance, so I relented. What happened to being a united front against kid-instigated chaos? So we brought her home, of course. And photo number two happened the very same day. And its been happening every night since. In the face of litter-box excavation and a solemn vow not to poop for Mom, this sweet, dumb animal is staying. She needs to be walked 27 times a day, chews on dead lizards and whines to be fed at 5 a.m., but no one is running scared anymore. Jessie has taught the kids to keep toys off the floor better than I ever did. And when shes sleepy which is often she needs a snuggle. If I wont sit with her on the couch, shell keep my feet warm at my desk. While our boy is content to wait until shes calmer to pay attention to her (those chewy teeth pinch), our daughter is very serious about feeding Jessie and teaching her manners. Granted, Julia derives more pleasure doling out treats than enforcing compliance, but shes convinced that Jessies going to be a lady, just like her girl, if it kills us.

It allows us to tap into some of the mystique and the interest people might have about these cars with the large hoods. Youll get a chance to see some innovative designs that were built for road cars and also for racing cars. Off Horseshoe Drive near Naples Municipal Airport, the Revs Institute also features an archive and research library of books, periodicals, photos, ephemera, brochures, advertisements and multilingual technical publications. Its Collier Collection consists of 100 influential automobiles that meet rigid standards for rarity and technical, aesthetic, historical or social significance. The vehicles are owned by Miles Collier, a retired business executive and grandson of Barron Gift Collier, for whom Collier County is named. The institute is a collaboration between Mr. Collier, the former managing partner of Collier Enterprises, and Stanford Universitys Revs (Researching the Evolution of Vehicles in Society) Program. Housed at the institute are cars built between 1896 and 1995 that represent groundbreaking technological, aesthetic and racing achievements. Included among them are a 1927 Bugatti Royale, Gary Coopers 1935 Duesenberg SSJ, Bobby Unsers 1975 Indy 500-winning Jorgensen-Eagle and the 1967 Gurney Eagle F1 car that won the 1967 Belgian Grand Prix. Among the cars that will have their hoods lifted or completely removed for the June 18-July 9 special exhibit are: 1938 Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B 1963 Corvette Grand Sport 1937 Delahay 135 Roadster 1962 Lutus Elite 1995 McLaren F-1 1970 Porsche 917K Martin 1914 Rolls Royce We have power plants that range from two cylinders up thru V-12, Mr. George says. You get a chance to see the evolution of engine design that you wouldnt see if the cars were sitting there in their normal state. The Revs Institute has proven to be a popular destination since its opening in 2014. Public visitation hours are limited to three days a week, with the remaining hours reserved for people conducting research. Sell-outs for tours guided by docents and volunteers are common during the tourist season, so the off-season was viewed as the ideal time to present a different view of the cars for locals and others who might not have been able to make reservations in the past. We want to let people know that its a great opportunity to see the cars in a different light and there are more opportunities (off-season) to book a reservation to come in and visit, Mr. George says. The museum hasnt exposed engines until now because most visitors are more interested in seeing the automobile exteriors. This transforms the gallery, he says about showing the cars with hoods lifted and bonnets removed. When we take lids off or open them, it changes the visual appeal of the gallery. My own staff and I know that opening the lids and showing the engines gives the gallery a different feel.

Family Donor Advised Fundholders Celebrating Years of Philanthropy239-333GIVETell us yours.www.oridacommunity.com/your-wordPhoto by Brian TietzNaples Orchid Society grants help fund orchid recovery effortsThe Naples Orchid Society has awarded intern scholarships to Jack Waggoner and Adam Herdman of Illinois College in Jacksonville, Ill. The two are working at Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge this summer under the supervision of refuge supervisory wildlife biologist Mark Danaher and Lawrence Zettler, Ph.D., director of ICs orchid recovery program. In addition, Ernesto Mujica, Ph.D., a ghost orchid specialist from Cuba, has received his second grant from NOS enabling his return to the refuge to continue work on the ghost orchid survey that was started last summer. This years work also will build on the research by past IC interns in the refuge and in the Fakahatchee Strand supported by NOS grants over the last six years. Students have discovered scale pests on native orchids and possible biological solutions to control them. They have found a virus in a leaf sample of the native Encyclia tampensis orchid, and they have identified, isolated and propagated specific fungi crucial to native orchid reproduction. Further research will help answer the questions of whether the virus infection and the scale pest are more widespread in the refuge and will hopefully lead to finding ways of dealing with both. Work on the mycorrhizal fungi will assist more successful propagation of native orchids. About half of native orchids in the United States are found in Southwest Florida and are threatened or endangered. Mr. Mujicas work involves establishing ways to do long-term monitoring of ghost orchid populations in the refuge so that this information can be compared to the populations of this orchid in Cuba. Hurricanes, pests and diseases, plus poaching and loss of habitat can all affect the numbers of ghost orchids remaining in the wild. This work is important to help conservationists understand orchid reproduction and the ability of these plants to survive in nature. Last year, Mr. Mujica and students Justin Mably and Shannon Skarha established transects to identify known ghost orchid locations and locate new locations using GPS technology for monitoring. Mr. Zettler, Mrs. Mujica and student interns will attend the July meeting of NOS, where Mr. Zettler will discuss the success of the work done by Hoang Nguyen, a University of Florida graduate student, on propagation of ghost orchids from a seed pod from Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge several years ago. The research led to thousands of seedlings from that one pod. About 100 plants were given to Naples Botanical Garden, where many of them have flower spikes this year. NOS members welcome guests to their meetings at no charge. The July meeting takes place Thursday, July 7, at Moorings Presbyterian Church. Society member Bill Overton will offer advice for those who bring in their ailing orchids (or photographs) starting at 6 p.m. The program begins at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call 775-5220 or visit naplesorchidsociety.org. FWC to consider options on future bear huntsAfter receiving input from the general public and stakeholders, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has released four options that commissioners will consider regarding how to control the states growing black bear population. The four options range from holding a bear hunt with the identical framework as last year to no bear hunting in Florida at all. The FWC staff recommends a more conservative and accountable hunt beginning in 2016. Citizens are encouraged to visit MyFWC.com/bear to learn more about each option and provide input and feedback. We look forward to continuing to have a transparent, accountable process, says FWC Executive Director Nick Wiley, adding staff will present information to the seven commissioners at their meeting Wednesday, June 22, in Eastpoint. The meeting begins at 8:30 a.m., and the bear management discussion is the fourth item on the agenda. The meeting will be streamed live on the Florida Channel. Option one would prescribe a bear hunt in 2016 with identical framework to the hunt held in 2015, but with updated hunt objectives. Option two is a limited hunt option allowing FWC to hold a more conservative bear hunt in 2016 utilizing the data and information collected including the latest bear population science. This option also puts more restrictions on hunters who choose to participate. Option three would be to postpone any bear hunt in 2016. The commission could consider a 2017 bear hunt at a later date. Option four would be for the commission to repeal bear hunt rules and not allow bear hunting in Florida in future years.

Continuing crisisAs Libyas central bank struggles to stabilize a halting economy, it could surely use the estimated $184 million in gold and silver coins that Moammar Gadhafi minted but left buried in an underground vault in the coastal city of Beyda, but the treasure is inaccessible because central bank officials dont know the locks combination (as The Wall Street Journal reported in May). The latest plan is to have a locksmith squeeze through a 16-by-16-inch hole in the outer vaults concrete wall and once inside to try his hand. If unsuccessful, the governments bureaucrats likely cannot get paid, but even if successful, various anti-government factions may go to extremes to snatch the coins.Bright ideasArgentinas TV channels have many of the same taboos as U.S. broadcasting, including restrictions on womens hands-on demonstration of how precisely to examine themselves for breast cancer. However, as AdWeek reported in March, the agency David Buenos Aires apparently solved the problem with an explicit TV public service announcement featuring a model (facing the camera, topless) showing exactly how such an exam should go, e.g., where to press down, where to squeeze. The secret? The model was an overweight man with generous-sized manboobs. New world order As an alternative to the more costly in vitro fertilization, researchers at a Dresden, Germany, institute announced (in the recent Nano Letters journal) that they had developed a motorized device tiny enough to fit around a sperms tail and which could be commanded to propel it to swim faster toward the target egg, increasing the chances of fertilization. A prototype is still in the works. The internet pornography behemoth PornHub recently added to the glut of physical fitness apps with one designed to help users tone up sexual muscles. The BangFits routines include the squat and thrust, the missionary press, and other ways to practice what the company describes as the one activity people are always motivated to do and (for) which they are never too busy.Wait, What? Video surfaced in May of students at Winston Churchill High School in San Antonio, Texas, actually playing jump rope with the intestines of cats that had been dissected in biology class. Obviously, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals was not pleased, but school district officials called the exercise a valid demonstration of the tensile strength of the organ and only reluctantly agreed to investigate further. When Triston Chase, 20, missed his court date in April in Harnett County, North Carolina, on financial fraud charges, it was revealed that his arrest in December had come when he had been found residing illegally, as a civilian, in a barracks at Fort Bragg in a facility housing the Armys 3rd Special Forces Group. According to a prosecutor, Chase had been posing as an explosive ordnance disposal specialist for months. The official investigation of Special Forces barracks security was still underway at the time of Chases court date. Second chance?(1) Efrain Delgado-Rosales was sentenced to five years in prison in March for smuggling noncitizens into the country. (The Border Patrol had caught him 23 times previously, but had declined to file charges.) (2) Sean Pelfrey, 38, told his judge in May that the two assault charges against him in Framingham, Mass., do not make him a threat to society, even though the current arrest was his 38th. (3) Matthew Freeland, 29, was convicted of several home-invasion offenses in Kingston, Ontario, in May, and the judge, considering a proper sentence, found only two previous probation orders but then, looking further, found 59 convictions and sentenced Freeland to more than two years in prison. Weird animals Among the critters for which life is most difficult are male nursery web spiders that (according to May research in Biology Letters journal) instinctively court females with food wrapped in silk offerings that (a) increase the males chances of scoring and (b) decrease, by 84 percent, their chances that the female will spontaneously eat the male. The study also found that males sometimes try to mate using nonfood items wrapped in silk (with mixed results) and also that sometimes unscrupulous females accept food gifts but nevertheless immediately devour the male.

Knowing that the pace of government is incremental that changes are incremental and the most positive change is usually slow to take place, we cant get caught up in a 90-degree turn between now and 2030. So pretty much what youll see between now and then is a stable period, a little more of the same. And all these voices that say: Youll become like the east coast. Or Well have a population explosion. Well, no. There are so many things put in place, because there are so many great places to preserve, I think were in pretty good shape. Fourteen years is too soon to see the great change that will ultimately come in mass transit, for example. A lot of us would like to see light rail implemented, but until the political leaders in a community are willing to raise revenue to do some of these good things, its not going to happen. So youll see a little more traffic, and incremental changes on the road system. Youll see more social infrastructure theater and cultural things happening but I think there will be a period (about 30 years) down the line when youll see the major changes. As far as water goes, drinking water is the simplest water problem we have. People say youre going to run out of water, but no. Youre not. Youre going to run out of cheap water. Collier County planners Kris Van Lengen (community planning manager in the zoning division) and David Weeks (manager of comprehensive planning in the growth management department) looking at the Lee-Collier border communities: Mr. Van Lengen: We see a lot of growth in the future, in the rural fringe/rural lands areas, in Golden Gate and Immokalee. Mr. Weeks: From our perspective, most changes are going to be in those geographic areas, all located east of Collier Boulevard. West of Collier to the Gulf of Mexico, we dont see significant changes. In those eastern areas, though, well see the same type of development we have now: low-density residential/senior housing and support commercial. As far as major road improvements, one will be Veterans Memorial Boulevard about a mile south of the Lee-Collier county line, which presently only exists for a half mile. The plan is to extend the boulevard to U.S. 41. Mr. Va Lengen: In those newer areas east of Collier Boulevard, what we want to incentivize is a slightly different pattern than the traditional development pattern. We may begin to see some new urbanism types of development clustered around village or town centers, with employment opportunities maybe centered around medical or technical-oriented enterprises. Those will provide opportunities for employment, retail services and also for fewer miles traveled. And you can add elements of technology to the picture in terms of transportation and communication. Smart cars, for example, could take pressure off the transportation system. Well see a lot more telecommunicating, whether in schools, businesses or government institutions. There will be more flexible work schedules, and all those things will change some of the logistic patterns we have been wrestling with for decades. Ave Maria is our crown jewel (out there). And dont forget that Immokalee 15 years from now will be much more vibrant the airport and industrial areas around the airport will become more fully utilized. As far as water, its always a concern and should be. I dont think well ever have the problems they have out West, but well have to absorb the notion that water is not free. The more difficult it becomes to get, the more well pay. The technology will be there to treat water from almost any source, but it will be a matter of cost. Mr. Weeks: Water conservation is here to stay, and weve made tremendous strides most all of our effluent from sewage comes back out as reused water. We can use it in many ways, and we can store it in wells called aquifer storage and recovery areas and that means we can absorb a much greater population.

Mr. Weeks: One thing about the additional impact of south Lee County development on Collier is affordable working housing. Comparably, Lee is where more affordable housing exists. Mr. Van Lengen: Our commissioners are starting to look very hard at creating affordable living opportunities in Collier, but were not there yet. Mr. Weeks: Hopefully Collier will do a lot more than in the past to provide market rate affordable housing what the market will bear that happens to be affordable as opposed to regulatory. But its more of the regulatory that Collier might have to introduce. Mr. Van Lengen: And then there are questions about sea level rise and the effects of climate change an environmental and coastal issue that affects everyone. I see down the road 15 years from now there will be some design solutions and we may not know what they are yet. I dont see (sea)walls as being effective because our geology doesnt support that, but building standards, elevation, changes to the whole infrastructure ... As far as what couldnt we do in 2030 that residents in Lee and Collier can do now? My imagination is not big enough to imagine anything we can do now that we couldnt do then. Deborah Maclean, a long-time Bonita Springs resident and community activist who publishes The Banana Peel, a free by invitation e-zine dedicated to local affairs, with a muckraking flair: Bonita Springs never had a clear identity. It has struggled with hunting, cattle, citrus, mullet. The sleepy fishing village image in local lore is recent. But today Bonita Springs is evolved; its a sophisticated little burg of wealthy retirees who are uniquely Republican conservationists, people who dont want growth to ruin their quality of life in the forms of overpasses, eight-lane roads, overdevelopment and the water woes that accompany these things. Concentrating instead on redevelopment of its important roads Bonita Beach Road, our gateway to the gulf; the Old 41 Road corridor in both Lee and Collier counties; and the Tamiami Trail. The intersection of Bonita Beach Road and Old 41 Road will become the calling card of the city of Bonita Springs. While other communities follow old excessive sprawling growth patterns, (by 2030) Bonita will emerge a leader in water and land conservation, with limited growth and anti-sprawl. Estero, meanwhile, inherited huge shopping centers and growth problems. An infant in cityhood, its struggling to take a firm hand with developers. Estero has the benefit of being new, with new infrastructure and new construction, having inherited few older buildings. She has a busy future in sight of her highways that are fourlanes or more. I do not consider busy in the form of overdevelopment a good thing. Wheres the water to support this? And what happens to the quality of water affected by roads, runoff and people? Charlie Whitehead, a long-time reporter and community activist: I think Estero will see at least some development out east on Corkscrew Road. The key will be to protect habitat and cluster the building and all the other things that real planning calls for. FGCU will continue to draw development, for good or ill likely both. I remember several years ago when the Census definition of urban finally connected everything all the way from North Fort Myers to Naples. The last stretch(es) to fill in were north of Bonita and north of Estero. Some of the key issues will be whether Collier County can push State Road 951/ Collier Boulevard through east of Bonita and what happens to the Edison Farms property. I freely admit I would love it if the Beach Area Civic Association can duplicate the work and the results the people of Estero did through the Community Planning Panel and its various committees and spinoffs. One of the things I told the folks in Estero when they were pushing for incorporation is to take care what they wished for. They were hugely successful with their volunteer committees and a friendly county commission. When a core group of active civic volunteers exists, and a community creates a real live government, the core loses its ability to determine who runs things. Voters are funny things. The folks of Estero are educated and intelligent, but they do not all have the same picture in their heads of Esteros future. Debbie Whitehead, wife of Mr. Whitehead (above): Rob Moher, the CEO of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, said that State Road 29 is the new urban growth boundary, and it borders the Big Cypress. I find that so depressing. Its devastating to think about. I went out to Ave Maria recently (in SEE 2030, A20 uCOURTESY IMAGESAbove: The Hyatt Regency Coconut Point.

With assurance for tomorrow, we are maximizing today every day eres still time...T btn f rr bt.eastern Collier County) and was stunned. Theres this huge boulevard, a freeway, and Im like, Are you kidding me? This is urbanized. You see the Arthrex facility where does this fall into place with preservation? Now, theyre going to plan all this land around it, the eastern urban conservation area, 52,000 acres and theyll allow hunting and sports camps on it. Similar things are occurring in Lee. As far as Bonita, so far theyve preserved their DRGR and kept out high-density developments. But this notion of environmental development: You take a development in a place zoned for 10 acres per unit and you change it and do one unit for one acre on one part of it, and compress the footprint to concentrate development and allow the balance for conservation, and maybe thats good, although that doesnt alleviate the traffic impacts. So theres a lot of pressure being put on Estero and on Lee County to widen Corkscrew Road to four lanes, like in Immokalee. I dont see that as the proper future for Corkscrew. They think you can have a fouror six-lane road and overpasses, and put everything into the mix, and it will all work out. Im not sure of that at all. Responsible growth management means having self-sustaining communities that integrate with agriculture out there. So that said, what will south Lee will look like in 2030? That depends on the next couple of years at the state and local political level, on the county commission level. Things could be redirected and focused on making more sustainable development. Or redevelopment we have this incredible rail corridor terminating in North Naples and going up to Arcadia, and its not being used. What a gem! But its sitting there with no use. Wayne Daltry, former Smart Growth director and retired planner in Lee County: In 1980 or thereabouts, an assessment was made for what build-out would be needed for relatively functional transportation (given 1980 technologies): It was 22 lanes for all roads. There is even more development being planned now than what was forecasted then So its hard to say things will be better, or that were going to break even in quality of life, in 2030. If you keep providing more sprawl, as were doing, you will end up with a more expensive transportation infrastructure. And with the shrinking of financially capable working families, their ability to pay more taxes has shrunk. Last year for the first time, Lee County used property taxes for road construction, but it wasnt enough because roads were more expensive. And when you create sprawl you end up having to drain land. And when you have 4.5 feet of rainfall for every square foot of land in Southwest Florida, drainage gets to be important youre trying to keep a lot of septic tanks dry, for one thing so you take water level well below ground level, and when the waters gone, vegetation starts to brown and wither and you end up with more fire. Im not an optimist. We keep going south on a north-pointing compass In towns near where fracking takes place, water supplies become unusable and thats not for a year or two, thats forever. You can never build a quality community on the cheap. But you can use your money wisely. As long as you have sprawl, you will increase your taxes and your need for money. Don Eslick, a retired economist and long-time resident of Estero who has been instrumental in shaping both the commercial and residential characters of his community: Things have been changing considerably in the last few years. You have to go from what you perceive to whats likely to happen. One important factor is the influence of Florida Gulf Coast University as it continues to grow its now at 13,000 to 15,000 students and it will go to about 23,000. Its already having an influence on the area, in the sense of more young people and recent graduates who are locating here. Thats helpful. Until now, weve predominantly been a retirement area. We grew so fast in the early 2000s, from 2000 to about 2007. In Estero alone we added 14,000 housing units. All those folks are getting elderly, which is one of the reasons weve seen in last couple years a tremendous amount of new senior housing thats true in Bonita as well as Estero. The other piece thats important is we saw a tremendous growth in regional retailing. A lot of it was centered in Estero and Bonita, with Gulf Coast Town Center a little north of us, but coming down Ben Hill Griffin you have very large shopping and retail centers. So retail is pretty saturated now, and not likely to grow much more in the future. The future growth is probably more in housing, what room we have for it. Theyre talking about another 400,000 people between now and 2030. A lot of development for that population will take place in Lehigh and Cape Coral, but the demands of 400,000 additional people will put a lot of pressure on both the water supply and on the transportation capacity and roads. I think its problematic as to whether or not were doing enough today to plan for those kinds of changes and beyond. The long-term forecast is that the population will be 3 million or more, completely built out, 50 years away or more. But if we dont do more to try to insure that the DRGR (Density Reduction Groundwater Retention) has the capability to recharge our aquifers, cleaning water going into Estero Bay and beyond all that could be a problem down the road. Right now, no level of government is doing an adequate job of raising money for transportation. Theres no question about that. Public transport, smaller autos, more roundabouts all the things being discussed today the impact of those on the continuing growth of traffic will be very interesting. So, thinking about 2030, Im neither an optimist nor a pessimist. I like to be a realist. Long term, we have to make some changes to maintain what weve got today, particularly in transportation and water. Health care is coming along pretty well and housing is coming along well. 2030From page 19

A22 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 16-22, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY BEHIND THE WHEELRam Rebel in search of a revolutionJoin the Dodge rebellion! Its a battle cry that served the company well a half century ago, and now they are fulfilling that promise. Well, almost... The mega pickup seen here is not a Dodge. It is the Ram 1500 Rebel. Dodge sales people sell these at Dodge dealers, but Ram Trucks quietly became its own independent brand a few years ago. Now comes the first pickup that really recognizes their uprising, literally. Standard on the Rebel trim is an air ride suspension. It has four settings so the pickup can be lowered on-demand below other Ram 1500s heights for easy entrance. Then, with the touch of a button, the Rebel can be raised until it becomes the companys tallest pickup. This is part of a full off-road package thats designed to be Rams answer to the Ford F-150 Raptor. Just like that extreme dirt-loving pickup, the Rebel trim is out to be the aggressor. It takes the standard 1500 truck and gives it a new attitude. Gone is the crosshair grille. It has been replaced with RAM in big block letters as if it was a warning to what the front end is going to do to traffic. Also, there are large hood scoops to give this sheep its horns. In the rear, the Ram name is once again spelled out, and this time it is a large enough declaration that no one needs glasses to read it. Inside, the aggressive attitude continues. The seats will look familiar to anyone who has driven an upper-market Dodge/Ram truck before, but now it has red siding and tread patterns running down the center. Theres even plenty of bold red trim surrounding everything from the air vents to the cup holders. But like a rebel yell coming from a business suit, all of that is really just for show. The Rebel package does add practical interior elements for the off-roading crowd, but they are subtler touches like the tough interior door panels or the heavy-duty rubber floor mats. From behind the wheel this pickup feels noticeably different from its other 1500 siblings. The Rebel package includes Bilstein dampers, a slower steering ratio (better for off-road), and a new rear sway bar. In practical terms, this is a package with genuine off-road prowess, especially with the standard Toyo all-terrain tires. But unlike the Ford Raptor, the Ram Rebel has a bit more potential for everyday use. The suspension can be adjusted to more normal levels, and many of the base components are shared with the Ram 1500 (including the comfortable coil rear suspension.) So the ride is a bit more bouncy than a commuter-grade pickup, but it also doesnt feel like a bucking bronco on the interstate. Another advantage of this package is the price. The base Rebel comes loaded with all the appearance features and the 395 horsepower 5.7-liter Hemi V8. It is a 4x2 model that starts at $44,465. For those actually using this truck for its off-road ability, the 4x4 starts at $46,395. But that pickup is downgraded to a V6 and a higher rear axle to compensate. To get a 4x4 with the big V8, that will cost $47,545. If all of that seems a bit confusing, just know this is still about $3,000 less than the new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor that will be out later this year. Plus, the pricing does not include Dodge/Rams history of deep discounts. The Raptor isnt overpriced compared to the Rebel. Ford offers a whole host of components that make it the kind of machine that can run the Baja 1000 right out of the box, and the Ram doesnt compete on that level. Instead, the Rebel offers the same gritty appearance as a full off-road machine, and just the basic amount of components to give it true substance. But isnt that really where the heart of the market is? After all, many of us want to look like rebels, but few of us are willing to give up all the comforts of conformity. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com Watch out for Collier County sheriffs deputies on traffic detailHeres where Collier County Sheriffs Office traffic enforcement deputies will be the week of June 20-24: Monday, June 20 Logan Boulevard and Pine Ridge Road: Aggressive driving Davis Boulevard and Country Barn Road: Speeding Radio Road and Devonshire Boulevard: Red-light running Tuesday, June 21 Santa Barbara and Green boulevards: Speeding U.S. 41 North and Old 41 Road: Redlight running Vanderbilt Beach Road and Vineyards Boulevard: Speeding Wednesday, June 22 23rd Avenue S.W. and Collier Boulevard: Speeding Immokalee and Airport-Pulling roads: Red-light running Naples Boulevard: Speeding Thursday, June 23 U.S. 41 North and Pine Ridge Road: Red-light running Shadowlawn Drive and U.S. 41 East: Red-light running Piper Boulevard: Aggressive driving Friday, June 24 Immokalee Road and I-75 southbound exit: Red-light running Goodlette-Frank Road and Orange Blossom Drive: Speeding Collier Boulevard and Mission Hills Drive: Speeding

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 6:308 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. To register, send a check made payable to Ms. Carty t o: 1725 S upreme Court, Naples, FL 34110. Include you name as well as an email address and phone number.

HEALTHY LIVINGDiet may improve function, reverse brain damageAttempting challenging puzzles and reading up on the theory of relativity arent the only ways to keep your brain at its finest. The right diet also can do wonders, improving the brains function and even helping to reverse brain damage. Meanwhile, the opposite also is true. Poor diet choices not only hurt the waistline, but have a negative effect on the brain. When it comes to the brain, sugar is public enemy No. 1, says Daniel Amen, M.D., a clinical neuroscientist and brain imaging expert who also is the founder of Amen Clinics, which treat patients at six locations around the country. Sugar is pro-inflammatory, increases erratic brain-cell firings and is addictive, says Dr. Amen, author of The New York Times bestseller Change Your Brain, Change Your Life. He doesnt hold back his disdain. Sugar is insidious, sort of like heroin, he says. It will make you want it over and over again. Its like dating the bad boys. You fall in love with something that beats you up. Sugar has company on Dr. Amens list of unfriendly brain foods, including a few surprises, such as corn, which has one of the worst fatty-acid profiles of any vegetable. Others on the avoid-at-allcosts list include artificial dyes, especially red dye; foods with trans fats, such as cookies, cakes and pie crusts; and low-fiber foods, which include many fast-food choices. Fortunately, there are also great food options that can heal the brain and even help reverse brain damage, Dr. Amen says. Those include: Healthy fats. Surprisingly, fat is not the enemy. Thats because there are good fats and bad fats. Some examples of good fats are olives, sunflower seeds and flaxseed. Dr. Amen also points out that 60 percent of the solid weight of the brain is fat. So if someone calls you a fathead, you should thank them, he says. Fish. Salmon, halibut, sardines, mackerel and other fish are loaded with healthy oils and healthy fat. People who eat grilled or baked fish once a week have more gray matter in their brain, Dr. Amen says. You may not want gray in your hair, but gray in your brain is awesome. Avocados. This nutrient-dense fruit is loaded with healthy Omega 3 fatty acids, which build brain-cell membranes, reduce brain inflammation and promote new brain-cell formation. Raw nuts. Go easy on the amount because they pack a lot of calories, but raw nuts are very healthy for the brain. Chocolate. Heres another surprise. Chocolate also has been shown to decrease cravings and increase blood flow to the brain. Its what usually is added to chocolate sugar and dairy products that makes it bad. Colorful vegetables. Green is great, but with vegetables you can branch out into such choices as yellow squash, purple carrots and orange bell peppers. You want things that are high in fiber, that are colorful, that are really medicine for your brain, Dr. Amen says. Anytime you prepare to eat something, dont just think about the pounds you might put on, Dr. Amen says. Ask yourself: Is this good for my brain or is it bad for my brain? Daniel Amen is a clinical neuroscientist and brain imaging expert who heads Amen Clinics, which are located in Orange County, California, Atlanta, San Francisco, New York City, Washington, D.C., and the Seattle area. He has written numerous books, including The Amen Solution: The Secret to Being Thinner, Smarter, Happier and Change Your Brain, Change Your Life.

Know the risks, warning signs of stroke BY KALI LYNCHLee Memorial Health SystemThe fifth leading cause of death in the U.S., stroke requires immediate treatment. Understanding the risk factors and knowing the signs and symptoms are crucial to being able to recognize and react if you or someone you are with is having a stroke. There are a number of factors that increase your risk of stroke, said neurologist Paul Driscoll. Some examples of risk factors include advancing/older age, high blood pressure, diabetes, tobacco use, high cholesterol and heavy alcohol consumption. Men also have a higher risk of stroke than women. It is important to maintain appointments with your physician or health care provider to ensure that you are aggressively treating any conditions that increase your risk. Warning signs and symptoms include:Facial weakness. Slurred speech.Weakness of one side of the body.Numbness in one side of the body.Abrupt change in balance or the ability to walk.Loss of vision in one or both eyes.Sudden onset of headache. Dr. Driscoll stresses the importance of calling 911 as soon as you or someone you are with experiences any of these signs or symptoms. Do not drive to the hospital or the doctors office. Call 911. The EMTs are trained to assess and detect stroke, and you will be taken to the primary stroke center closest to your home. Once at the hospital, the neurologist will determine the best plan for treatment, which can include the use of an intravenous injection of tissue plasminogen activator, or a clot-busting medication. TPA must be given within three to four-and-half hours of the onset of symptoms, Dr. Driscoll said. Appropriate patients may be transferred to a comprehensive stroke center, like Gulf Coast Medical Center, where specialists attempt to snare and remove clots. Other treatment can include the use of aspirin and blood thinners. Patients are usually hospitalized two to four days, while they are medically and neurologically stabilized. Then, depending on their capabilities and rehabilitation needs, they are discharged home or to a skilled nursing facility. The American Stroke Association employs the acronym F.A.S.T. to remind people of the sudden signs of stroke. Remember: F Face drooping Does one side of the face droop or is it numb? Ask the person to smile. Is the persons smile uneven? A Arm weakness Is one arm weak or numb? Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward? S Speech difficulty Is speech slurred? Is the person unable to speak or hard to understand? Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence, like The sky is blue. Is the sentence repeated correctly? T Time to call 911 If someone shows any of these symptoms, even if the symptoms go away, call 911 and get the person to the hospital immediately. Check the time so you know when the first symptoms appeared. Dr. Driscoll urges everyone to remember to think F.A.S.T. when it comes to stroke, because time lost is brain lost. Support available for those with colitis, Crohns diseaseThe next support group meetings for the Crohns and Colitis Foundation of America take place from 5-6 p.m. Thursday, July 7, Aug. 4 and Sept. 1, at Naples Regional Library, 650 Central Ave. Gastroenterologist Raymond Phillips will address the July meeting and take questions from those in attendance.

MARTY BECKER AND GINA SPADAFORIUniversal UclickKeeping kittens and cats busy with toys will help them learn not to play rough with family members. Inside every cat is a lion. Or a tiger. Or a lynx. Or, really, all of these great hunters. And in your cats mind, hes a wild predator, too. In fact, all cats are. They love to lurk and prowl and chase and pounce. An indoor cat doesnt have the opportunity to go after real prey (unless you have mice in your home), but he still has strong hunting instincts. This genetic coding doesnt disappear just because he lives a royal lifestyle in your home and has his meals delivered on the feline equivalent of a silver platter. When a cats need to hunt isnt fulfilled with live action, he turns to the next best thing: feet moving beneath the covers, hands dangling at an owners side, arms, legs, you name it. Instead of letting a kitten believe your body parts are fair game, provide him with toys that will satisfy his urge to hunt as well as save your skin. Its all too easy to accidentally encourage kittens to bite or scratch in play, but this type of aggressive behavior can turn into a big, painful problem as the kitten gets bigger. Never arm wrestle with a young cat, and keep some distance between you through play with toys that dont involve direct contact with the kitten. When kitten teeth or claws touch human skin, screech loudly and immediately walk away. Kittens learn fast that playing rough ends the game, especially when there are other things to play with. Cats like toys they can stalk, chase, pounce on and bite. Turn your home into an indoor hunting ground with perches for watching the outdoor world go by (such as a window-box bird feeder), scratching posts for paw marking and nail maintenance, cat trees for climbing, resting and observing, and an ever-changing assortment of toys, toys, toys. Puzzle toys are particularly good for giving your cat an outlet for his hunting instincts and ensuring that he keeps his sleek, sinewy physique. Wands with feathers or other dangly bits and wind-up or battery-operated toys that move on their own excite a cats chase instinct. Balls inside a track let him paw for prey, just as if he were exploring a mouse hole. The fast, erratic motion of laser pointers and flashlights increase a cats ability to think and move quickly. (Direct the beam up and down the stairs to give him a real workout.) And dont forget the classic catnip-filled mice for rolling and rabbit-kicking under the influence. To keep your cat interested in his toys, change them out every few days. If he sees the same ones over and over again, hell get bored and look for something new to play with. Cats being who they are, it will probably be something expensive or fragile that you dont want him to treat as a toy. Those laser pointers, flashlights and wand toys have especially high value to cats because they are just so darn much fun. Bring them out less often than other toys, and limit the amount of time your cat is allowed to play with them. For some cats these toys are addictive, and they will stand in front of the closet where the laser or wand is stored and yowl plaintively until they are brought out. Remember, if you give in even once, you have just taught your cat exactly how to manipulate you. To help soften your cats disappointment when these favorite toys go up, reward him with a treat afterward or give him another favorite toy, like a catnip mouse. The word toy just doesnt seem to cover how important these items are to our pets, especially an indoor cat. Indulge your pet with the gift of play, and youll both be happier for it.

Orr, OD, MD, MD, OD, OD SWFLEYE.COM CALL TODAY TO SCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT! THE DIVA DIARIESVacation planning gives a whole new meaning to cruise controlA few weeks ago when my husband and I were enjoying a short Miami Beach getaway, we drove past the Port of Miami and marveled at all the festivelooking cruise ships. We really should go on a cruise, urged Todd (again). Hes been trying to get me on a cruise for years, but Ive resisted. The idea of being stuck on a giant, floating city with more than 3,000 other travelers just didnt sound like my cup of Dramamine. But when I started chatting with friends who love cruising and who flit around the oceans regularly, they became my ardent cruise cheerleaders, heralding the food, the drinks, the shows, the shore excursions and, mostly, the relaxation factor. I think thats what sold me relaxation. Youre going to love it! they promised. Most of the time when Todd and I travel, its road trips with lots of little stops along the way to visit family and friends. While thats nice and all, a cruise would mean wed only have to unpack once, we would have no real agenda, no driving, no traffic, no stress and no drunk cousins at awkward family functions. Sign me up! The actual planning of our cruise, however, took my stress to a whole new level. Hopefully, as you read this, my husband and I will have just returned from our Norwegian Cruise Line seven-day tour of the Western Caribbean (weather permitting), after sipping drinks with umbrellas in them without a care in the world. But we had to navigate some choppy seas leading up to the trip. Although we booked our cruise through a wonderful agent, theres still lots of work you have to do on your own. Reading online reviews was an obsession as I went through the umpteen message boards on cruising websites. Passenger Cruisy Lucy says our ship is the best!!!! So much FUN!! But then Ship-Faced Fred (who was on the same cruise) says, Worst experience EVER. Pool was too small! Not only was reading all these reviews confusing, it was exhausting. Next up, I had to go onto the ships website and make choices for dinner reservations, show tickets, shore excursions and more. Im not good at making decisions, period but, when it comes to making choices about something Ive never experienced, Im literally at sea. For instance, we made reservations at a Japanese steak house for Friday dinner, but what if I was in the mood for Mexican that night? Sigh. The people you really want to stay away from while planning a cruise are those who absolutely hate cruising and are positive that youll hate it, too. Theyre happy to tell you about the flu they caught onboard, the time the ship ran out of toilet paper and the horrible cruise their Aunt Nancy went on in the middle of a hurricane (She still has post traumatic stress disorder. Shell never be the same again.) Their first question is always: Do you have seasickness medication?! To which I answered: Well, Im not actually prone to sea-sickness, but I have some just in case. They then typically say: Start taking it NOW! I answered: But our cruise is a week away. They then told me: I dont CARE. Start NOW. Sea-sickness is worse than DEATH. As a result of these dire warnings, I took Bonine, Pepto-Bismol, a seasickness bracelet thingie that cost $10, Imodium, Advil, ginger chewing gum, peppermint oil, NyQuil and my gullygully (that would be my blankie from home). Sounds relaxing, right? Well, the cruise was more fun than the planning part. Anchors aweigh! Ciao for now, my lovelies!

Professor Kauanui has been working to build up FGCUs program since moving here from California State Polytechnic University in 2007. Starting in the fall of 2014, that has included opening courses as well as the option to pursue a minor in entrepreneurship to all students, not just those in the College of Business. That first semester, 200 students enrolled in entrepreneurship courses, a number that has grown to 800 students from across the university. In coming years, the school will offer undergraduate students an entrepreneurship major as well. The institute, which partners the College of Business with the U.A. Whitaker College of Engineering, is also making inroads as a community partner. It is leading a state program to boost start-ups and businesses owned by veterans, has enlisted retired executives to mentor students, made connections with local venture capital forums, and created entrepreneurial programs for high school students and teachers. This year, the institute worked with the Southwest Florida Community Foundation to host The Frank Stern Compassionate Shark Tank for Veterans. FGCU faculty, staff and mentors helped 45 veterans hone their start-up plans or to help grow their business. Then they had a chance to pitch their ideas to local investors. They awarded the top prize of $10,000 to Cape Coral resident Stephen Berge, who served as an engineer in the Marine Corps from 2000 to 2008, for his construction supply sourcing company BRAVO. The money came from a Community Foundation endowment from Frank Stern, a successful local real estate developer in the mid 1900s. Mr. Stern was an Air Force pilot during World War II who died at age 95 in February 2014. Promoting local small businesses strengthens the social and economic fabric of the region, said Sarah Owen, the foundations president and CEO. This whole culture of entrepreneurship in a region is really vital, she said. So to have an institution where citizens can go who are interested in pursuing entrepreneurial ventures will be right in our backyard. They wont have to go out of our area to get this type of training or this type of education or resources. John Gamba, a foundation board member and president of Naples-based MassiveU, an education technology company, agreed. I think developing an entrepreneurial mindset for all of our young students is critically important to developing 21st century skills, he said. We think that thats the future of job creation. Thats the future of developing a thriving economy: locally, nationally, internationally. Its great to see FGCU taking the steps to really prioritize entrepreneurship. Troy Collins, a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reservist, retired from the corps and in May started a new construction management business, TD Collins. After participating in the Compassionate Shark Tank, he is working with four undergrad seniors tasked with helping him design a better website and research opportunities for veteran-owned businesses as part of their coursework. They include Jennie Edwards, a business management major; Rachel Koren, business management with a concertation in entrepreneurship; Harrison Yazgi, marketing; and Yuneisy Flores, management. These guys come up with stuff that an old guy like me would never think about, Mr. Collins said.New Venture LabProfessor Kauanui also developed an undergrad course with a shark tank aspect in which business and engineering students work hand-in-hand on a detailed business plan, along with mentors. New Venture Lab is a juniorand senior-level class required for an entrepreneurship minor. As former executive vice president of information and strategic planning for Green Mountain Coffee Roasters in Vermont, Rod Ely is one of the mentors who has supported Professor Kauanuis efforts. He and his wife moved to Southwest Florida after their children attended FGCU and he retired from Green Mountain in 2014. I wanted to do something to give back and help out what I saw was an incredible young university in a fabulous community down here, Mr. Ely said. He has an ambitious vision for the universitys dedication to start-up business. Most Millennials have in mind a purpose for their life and what they want their careers to be, he said, and with this incredible entrepreneurship program they can figure out how to create businesses that can solve the worlds problems. Dixibeth Villarraga, who graduated this year, was a special education major and entrepreneurship minor. It totally changed my world, said Ms. Villarraga, who is 25. It completely changed the way I think and the way I look at things. I learned that entrepreneurship (is) across all disciplines. To me entrepreneurship is all about adding value to a society that needs it. To create a positive change in something you believe in and something youre passionate about. Its a way to make a living by doing what you love. Ms. Villarraga decided to enroll in the courses after watching her mom struggle with her own small business that helps people with developmental disabilities. When she took the Venture Lab class, her team developed an award-winning product that ensures people who interact with hospital patients have clean hands, potentially keeping patients healthier and for hospitals reducing fines, a win-win. A red light goes off if anyone enters the patients room and doesnt wash their hands. When they wash up the light turns green. Her group found that hospital visitors are the most common dirty-handed perpetrators, although medical professionals occasionally forget, too. Initially the course was like a whirlwind for me, Ms. Villarraga said. So many concepts being thrown at you and youre kind of unsure of where to go. Thats entrepreneurship, thats what its all about. Shes been able to offer her mom some business advice as well. Its just incredible how Ill say can you send me your P and Ls (profit and loss reports) from last month, I want to see how youre doing. I can see things she has missed or even her accountant has missed. Shes just thrilled that I can do that for her and I can do that for myself. Ms. Villarraga came away convinced that it was a great program across all disciplines. Art majors, music majors, everyone can benefit from learning about entrepreneurship. FGCUs governing Board of Trustees shares that vision as well. They voted June 7 to make entrepreneurship one of the schools Four Pillars in its 20162021 strategic plan. The other three pillars include one other academic program, health sciences, as well as the two more general categories of academic excellence and emerging pre-eminence, which focus on goals such as expanding an honors program, having undergrads get their degree in no more than four years, and fostering research. The trustees identified the Institute for Entrepreneurship as the nucleus of all campus-wide entrepreneurial initiatives, which will be further expanded into a College. Its objectives included creating Entrepreneurial mindset throughout the University Community and a focus on FGCU becoming the catalyst of entrepreneurship within Southwest Florida and the State. Originally from Virginia Beach, Va., Professor Kauanui said she took the position at FGCU to be near family here, including children and grandchildren, and because FGCU is a young, growing school, small enough to be a place where she could impact change. Most of all she enjoys working with students, sharing her passion for entrepreneurship and its potential to allow business owners to love what they do. Work should not be a job, she said. It should be a joy. FGCUFrom page 1ELY EVAN WILLIAMS / FLORIDA WEEKLYProfessor Sandra Kauanui To me entrepreneurship is all about adding value to a society that needs it.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 16-22, 2016 BUSINESS B5 MONEY & INVESTINGReferendum on UK departing European Union will impact U.S. marketsNot since the days of Ross and Rachel has the world been so preoccupied with whether a couple will stay together or go their separate ways. Of course, I am talking about Brexit and the historical vote that takes place June 23. So what is Brexit and why should you care about it? In 1992, 12 European nations signed the Maastrict treaty which effectively formed the economic and political union we know as the European Union. The United Kingdom was one of these 12 countries but it always seemed to be the odd man out. For one thing, the UK did not adopt the Euro but held on to its own currency, the pound. In addition, the country geographically is separate from the rest of Europe and politically London seems to have the most difficulties taking orders from Brussels. Despite these differences, the strong economic growth in the 1990s and early 2000s convinced most British citizens that the EU was good for their country. However, with the financial crisis in 2008 and resulting recession, as well as the persistent immigration problems during the last several years, many politicians in the UK have become more vocal in their opposition to the EU. Many blame the EU for allowing too many immigrants to enter the UK and for poor economic growth in general. Therefore, responding to public sentiment, Prime Minister Cameron in 2013 announced that if his conservative party won the 2015 election, he would both renegotiate certain aspects of Britains membership in the EU as well as hold a public referendum asking the public whether the UK should remain in the organization or exit. This referendum on the potential British exit, or Brexit, will be held June 23. Those who support remaining in the EU say that UK exporting businesses are helped by the EU as they can sell their products with less red tape and duties throughout Europe. After all, 44 percent of all British exports end up in the rest of Europe. In addition, these supporters believe that by remaining in the EU, they can more easily influence the rest of Europe politically rather than being on the outside looking in. Those who oppose the EU believe that by exiting the organization, they can renegotiate more favorable trade agreements with the rest of Europe and other countries. In addition, every week the UK sends 350 million pounds to Brussels and many believe that money can be better spent. Finally, some people think that the UK should have more control over its borders and economic policy. Recent polls have the vote at around 50/50 so the outcome of this vote is very much in doubt. And even if the British people vote against the EU, many believe that Prime Minister Cameron will just use this to gain more concessions from the EU and that Britain will ultimately remain in the union even if the vote is for Brexit. Despite all of this, however, the uncertainty around this vote already has had an effect on financial markets, as the pound and Euro both have fallen against the dollar. If Britain does ultimately leave the EU, many analysts believe that both these currencies can fall much further, maybe 20 percent or more. The UK stock market will also be susceptible to a crash as investors flee uncertainty. In addition, many believe that the real estate market in London will collapse as the market is dominated by foreign buyers who want a safe haven asset. With a depreciating pound and political uncertainty, these buyers may pull their money out of the country. And a collapsing real estate market can crush British banks, already weak from the financial crisis of 2008 and the onerous rules placed upon them in the aftermath. Here in the U.S., we may benefit in the short term from Brexit as we become the safe haven for international investors. U.S. stock market prices as well as New York and Los Angeles real estate prices should all benefit. Bond and gold prices should also head higher, as investors park their money in the safest assets they can find. In the long run, however, a weak Europe will be a drag to global GDP growth, which will harm all multi-national companies. And finally, a Brexit vote could empower isolationist political parties both in the U.S. and abroad, which could harm global trade. Eric Bretan, the co-owner of Ricks Estate & Jewelry Buyers in Punta Gorda, was a senior derivatives marketer and investment banker for more than 15 years at several global banks. ericBRETANestaterick@gmail.com Part 2: How to begin using loyalty management philosophy and techniques BY FRANK FRIENDSpecial to Florida WeeklyLoyalty management combining the right thing to do with the profitable thing to do is as much a management philosophy as a management technique. Common sense and the Golden Rule are much in evidence. Success developing loyal customers (your most profitable) depends on forging positive, emotional bonds with them. Loyalty management uses data-driven systems, but for these to be effective, they need the support of committed, empathetic, open-minded managers. As an example, most small to medium-sized companies spend around 70 percent of their marketing budget finding new customers and 30 percent on programs for their existing ones; loyalty managers reverse this.The first step is to learn what your customers think of your company. A simple way todo this is to conduct a Net Promoter Score survey, a technique used by leading companies worldwide. The best way to conduct an NPS survey is via email using software such as that from Constant Contact. The basic question to be answered is:How likely is it that you would recommend XYZ Inc. to your friends and colleagues?The scoring is on a 0-10 scale, where 0 = most unlikely and 10 = most likely. You can find calculation details at my website: ffauk.com/netpromoterscore. The NPS survey identifies customers who have negative feelings (detractors, 0-6), those who are neutral (passives/satisfied, 7-8) and those who are loyal (promoters, 9-10). Detractors will criticize your company and will probably leave for a better deal. Passives are OK but have no emotional bond. Promoters will have high retention and referral rates and greater lifetime values. It is unlikely that a loyalty management approach will succeed unless the employees are loyal to the company. Believing it is in their interest for the company to be profitable, they will strive to make it so. Loyalty managers include loyalty tendencies and empathy as part of their hiring criteria. Larger companies can check the loyalty of their employees by using an NPS survey, asking if the employee would recommend the company as a place to work. Loyal employees expect to be respected and treated fairly, not least in matters of compensation. They want their opinions and suggestions to be taken seriously, and they want to be informed about company plans and performance. Creating loyal customers begins by making sure your prices, quality and service are at least equal to those of your competitors. Thereafter creating loyal customers involves earning their trust by showing that you will serve their needs more reliably than your competitors will. A good start is not only to keep your promises, but to exceed them. Loyalty management relies on accurate and comprehensive customer data; this is best acquired using CRM software programs from companies like ACT, combined with surveying and personal contact. Much is written about delighting customers, but more important is making it easy for them to do business with your company. Combining the two will make you unbeatable. I consider complaints loyalty gold. A complaint resolved efficiently is a sure way to build loyalty, so be sure to make it easy for customers to complain. Remember: More than 90 percent of customers who have a problem do not even bother to complain; they just leave and never come back. Loyalty cannot be bought or imposed. Gaining it is hard work, but there are few, if any, better investments you can make to ensure your companys growth and profits. 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.

B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 16-22, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY You may not know my name, but Im the worlds largest oilfield services company, with a market value topping $100 billion. I trace my roots back to the 1926 creation of a company that prospected for metal ore. Today I employ around 113,000 people and rake in more than $35 billion annually from operations in more than 85 countries. My work ranges from oil exploration through production, aiming to optimize hydrocarbon recovery. My equipment has been used to search for sunken ships, and NASA has used my calculating machines and sensors for space exploration. Who am I?Think you know the answer?

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. You Need a PlanUnless youre independently wealthy, you probably need an emergency fund. It can be hard to believe that a job loss might happen, or that your car might soon need an expensive repair, or that you might face a costly health issue, but these things do happen. One rule of thumb is to have three to six months worth of living expenses available, such as in savings accounts, money market accounts or certificates of deposit (CDs). If you think it might take a long time to find a new job, consider socking away a few more months worth. You may not earn much interest on these types of accounts, but the money will be there when you need it. (Visit Bankrate. com to find the best available rates.) Your emergency plan might feature some unconventional strategies, too. If you have little credit card debt, you could plan to charge emergency expenses on your credit card, up to a certain amount. Dont make it a large or unlimited sum, though, as this is potentially very dangerous. If youre charged a steep interest rate on a large balance, a bad situation can get much worse quickly. You might be able to borrow money temporarily from family members or friends. Alternatively, you might borrow what you need from your brokerage, on margin, with your portfolio as collateral. People usually borrow on margin to buy additional stock, but you can borrow for pretty much any purpose. But note: If you borrow a lot and your stocks suddenly plunge in value, youll be hit with a margin call and may end up losing some of your stocks. Use margin sparingly, if you use it at all. As a last resort, you might be able to take out a home equity loan or borrow against your 401(k) account at work. Unconventional alternatives can help you avoid keeping a sizable chunk of money tied up where its not earning much for you. But a more conventional approach, such as investing in CDs and money market accounts, is safer and can help you sleep better. Paging Dr. RobotA few years back, I purchased 1,000 shares of Intuitive Surgical for about $10 apiece. I watched it go up a dollar or so and down a dollar, but the changes were never more than a dollar. I finally got tired of watching it fluctuate by so little and sold it, recouping my original cost. What happened next? Well, I watched it skyrocket in a fairly short time period. This is not my worst investment, but it was certainly my worst sale. L., AtlantaThe Fool Responds: This is a good reminder that many times our dumbest investment moves are not bad purchases but regrettable sales. Thats often due to impatience. Its worth remembering that a $1 move for a $10 stock is a solid 10 percent. A stocks daily moves shouldnt matter too much to you, though. You need to focus on what you think the shares will be worth in the future and to be patient as long as the company remains healthy and growing. Intuitive Surgical is a leader in robotic surgery equipment and has been profiting not only from sales of its milliondollar-plus DaVinci machines to hospitals, but also by selling services and supplies for the machines. As youve certainly noticed, shares of the company recently traded above $600 per share. Your impatience led to your losing out on a possible gain of more than half a million dollars. A Biotech GiantBiotechnology is risky business for those not well versed in it. If youre intrigued by its growth potential, consider investing in a biotech fund or a well-diversified giant in the industry such as Amgen (Nasdaq: AMGN). Amgens areas of focus include oncology, neurosciences, nephrology, inflammation and bone health, and it recently entered a new one, with its cardiovascular drugs Corlanor and Repatha. Its product lineup includes two drugs that each generate more than $1 billion in sales per quarter Neulasta, which boosts a patients white blood cell count, and Enbrel, which treats rheumatoid arthritis. Its multiple myeloma drug Kyprolis received a label expansion from the Food and Drug Administration in 2015, making it available to more patients. Many have high hopes for Amgens PCSK9 inhibitor Repatha, designed to dramatically reduce LDL-cholesterol levels (the bad kind).Meanwhile, Amgens pipeline of drugs in development is broad, with more than 30 clinical-stage products. A broad pipeline means plenty of potential growth catalysts.Amgens business is also attractive because its defensive, meaning that no matter how healthy the economy is, people will keep taking their medicines. It offers patient believers a dividend that recently yielded 2.5 percent, and it has been hiking its payout aggressively in recent years. Its profit margins are growing, and its stock is attractively priced, with its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio below its five-year average. I trace my roots back to a store selling herb al 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? (Answer: Walgreens Boots Alliance) Bonds or Stocks?QIs it better to invest in Treasury bonds or bills because theyre safer than stocks? A.T., Hendersonville, North CarolinaAIts generally good to have some bonds in your portfolio for diversification, and bonds tend to be more stable than stocks. But you can lose money in the bond market, too. For example, interest rates have been very low for a long time and are starting to inch up. As they do, the value of existing bonds (with lower interest rates) will likely drop. You can always hold a bond until maturity and get your principal back, but that can take a long time. And you cant do so with bond mutual funds their values rise and fall with the bond market and can burn investors when rates rise. The stock market can move in any direction in the short run, but over the long run, it has tended to go up. Its a great place for long-term money, while short-term money might be parked in safer places such as money market accounts and CDs. Consider your risk tolerance, too, when investing. ***QTo buy stock in a company, do I have to work there? C.S., Watertown, WisconsinAIf the companys stock is publicly traded, just about anyone can invest in it. (That said, some companies do offer employees stock options, stock grants, or the ability to buy shares of company stock at a discount.) All you generally need is a brokerage account. Most major companies, and many smaller ones, are publicly traded. Examples include Apple, Boeing, Costco, Facebook, Hasbro, IMAX, iRobot, Kroger, PepsiCo, SherwinWilliams, Staples, Starbucks, Verizon, Visa and Walt Disney.

London Bay Homes newest model in the Park Shore neighborhood near downtown Naples sold just 11 days after it opened for viewing. The Anguilla, at 541 Neapolitan Lane, achieved the highest price per square foot in the Park Shore submarket in recent history, nearly eclipsing the $1,000 per square foot threshold. I expected this home would sell quickly because its close to the beach and downtown, an area where there is limited availability, says Toby Cloutier, who represents the builders Naples portfolio. A sophisticated blend of modern comfort and Tuscan architecture defines this lakeside villa with three bedrooms, a study and 3 baths. A 2013 renovation introduced handscraped hardwood floors, Carrera marble counters and Italian pendant light fixtures. The new kitchen has a Wolf gas cook-top, butlers pantry and coffee bar, while a 300-plus bottle Subzero wine refrigerator is perfectly sited near the garden courtyard. Adjoining the kitchen through a wide arched gallery, the formal dining area opens to the great room that has a linear gas fireplace. One of the guest suites is accommodated in a casita with its own entrance. Other amenities include a summer kitchen, surround sound and a two-car garage with air-conditioned storage.This property is offered at $1,645,000.

NAR analyzed employment gains, population trends, income levels and housing conditions in the largest 100 metropolitan statistical areas across the country to identify the best purchase markets for millennial homebuyers. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says although millennials have made up the largest share of buyers for three consecutive years, sales to first-time buyers and the homeownership rate for young adults under the age of 35 remain depressed at levels not seen in decades. This is despite historically low mortgage rates, escalating rental costs and low unemployment levels among those with a college education. Even with potentially higher incomes, prospective millennial homebuyers residing in some of the most expensive cities in the country face the onerous task of paying steep rents while trying to save for an adequate down payment, says Mr. Yun. However, for those living in or looking to move to a more affordable part of the country, there are metro areas right now that offer a smoother path to homeownership. The top 10 metro areas NAR identified were chosen for their above-average share of millennial residents, favorable employment opportunities and relatively low qualifying incomes needed to purchase a home. In alphabetical order, they are: Austin, Texas Charleston, S.C. Denver, Colo. Minneapolis, Minn. Ogden, Utah Portland, Ore. Raleigh, N.C. Salt Lake City, Utah Seattle, Wash. Washington, D.C. Other markets NAR identified for having promising potential for millennial homebuyers include: Boston, Mass.; Dallas, Texas; Des Moines, Iowa; Jacksonville, Fla.; and Nashville, Tenn. During the early stages of the economic recovery, some of the largest metro areas, such as New York and parts of California, were attractive to millennials for their strong job markets, but their higher costs of living made it difficult to buy. Now that many more affordable, middle-tier cities have mostly recovered from the downturn, millennials moving to these cities will likely realize theyre earning enough to purchase their first home. An overwhelming majority of young renters recently said they eventually want to buy a home, Mr. Yun says. As long as new and existing-home supply keeps up to meet demand and holds prices from rising too quickly, these identified areas are poised to lead the way in helping millennials realize their American Dream of becoming homeowners.

Giordano. BluewaterPress LLC. 252 pages. Trade paperback, $22.95; Kindle e-book, $4.99. Set in 2000, Howard Giordanos new mystery thriller features Luke Rizzo, a New York Police Department retiree working as a private investigator hired to find a crazed serial killer, Werner Schmitt, who is out for twisted revenge. The woman who hired Rizzo, the beautiful Amy Chatsworth, is married to a British House of Lords member. Shes also the daughter of a man Schmitt feels compelled to assassinate. Amy has been trying to find her long lost father, and the connection makes her an additional target for Schmitt. But when Schmitt has his chance, his pistol shot misses its mark. Whats Werner Schmitts problem? Well, it goes back a generation. His father, Walter, was one of eight Germans who made up a band of saboteurs working against the United States. When the FBI captured them in 1942, two of the group of eight cooperated and brought evidence against the other six. The turncoats were put in witness protection. The other six, including Walter Schmitt, were executed. One of the two betrayers was Amys grandfather. Werner, a former East Germany Stasi agent, also knows that the sabotage project involved a huge cash backing, some $2.5 million that the Nazis committed to it. Its been missing all these decades, and hed like to get his hands on it. The action begins in London and take us to parts of Pennsylv ania and New York. Rizzos job is to help find Amys grandfather and the other man who had been placed in witness protection. Soon enough, it is clear that while her grandfather is no longer alive, her father is or might be. This part of the narrative is a bit obscure, but in any case, Rizzo needs to protect Amy and thwart Werners plans. Unfortunately, anyone getting in Werners way will also become a target. Pursuing an investigation with Amy leads Rizzo to a hot romance (with her) and to confrontations with FBI agents and local police in the various places his investigation leads him. Amy is an able partner in more than one way. Werner Schmitt is a shrewd adversary. Knowing that Rizzo and Amy are likely doing his work for him (finding the individuals he wishes to assassinate, only in order to protect them), he simply tracks the sleuthing lovers. Hes good at it. Will they catch on? The author creates additional interest by examining the interaction among the various FBI agents and the local police. Presented mainly through dialogue, this material reveals personalities, investigative techniques and, most colorfully, the rivalries between these turf-hugging professionals. Rizzo has to find his way through a maze of petty politics. Who is in whose way? The various locals are handled quite well. Neighborhoods, buildings (especially the converted school that is the home of one of the good Germans being hunted down) and other environmental features are clear and vivid without being overdone. Sections of New York City and rural New York State ring true as well, as do other locations. Mr. Giordano knows how to build suspense, relax it and then build it even higher. And he knows how to introduce surprises that, while at first disorienting, soon seem plausible. Im hoping he has plans for Luke Rizzos future.About the authorHoward P. Giordano is the author of the award-winning Tracking Terror, also a thriller. Before being infected with the writing itch, he had a Madison Avenue advertising career and worked for the New York Racing Association (which oversees Aqueduct, Belmont and Saratoga) as executive director of marketing and TV. His last position before retirement to Naples was as president of the New York City Off-Track Betting Corporation. 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. philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com GIORDANO

At 11515 Bonita Beach Road, the Southwest Florida Performing Arts Center will be a life enrichment center as well as a dining and entertainment destination drawing nationally known comedians, bands, musicals, dancers and other acts.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 16-22, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYShot in downtown Miami in early morning, The moment was not staged; it is the immediacy of street photography that I like the most of all, the Naples photographer writes in his artist statement. For me, its like catching a bird or animal in an unusual or striking pose and knowing that the image will never be replicated. Or, theres the futuristic-looking Red Escalator by Suzanne Schwartzman of Boca Raton. At the foot of the image is a silhouette of a man on an escalator, dwarfed by diagonals of two other escalators and the red-hued space. The photograph looks as if were shot in a city of the future, but Ms. Schwartzman took it in the parking garage at the Fort Lauderdale Airport. Then theres Todd Bradleys Pods of Life, a trio of stephanotis, iris and California sycamore seedpods. The pods vary in shape, size and texture, making an intriguing still life. The San Diego photographer writes in his artists statement that, The decaying shells form beautiful abstract forms, sometimes showcasing the seeds like a peacock displaying its plumes. Before the seeds are released the pods hold them tight, protecting them from the elements of wind, rain, the heat of the sun until the perfect moment to release its precious cargo. These are just three of the 51 images that make up Camera USA 2016, the national photography contest and exhibit sponsored by the Naples Art Association and exhibited at The von Liebig Art Center. Jurors selected the images from among 154 submissions from photographers in 17 states. (Works by 28 Florida photographers were chosen.) The winner, who receives a $5,000 award, will be announced at the preview reception from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Friday, June 17 at the art center.

The exhibit includes landscapes, such as BD Richardsons The Church By the Road, which shows an abandoned wooden church in a stark, desolate area with ominous, low-hanging clouds. And Tony Hertzs Layers of Waves, an image of mist, breaking waves and cliffs at sunset on a windy day in Shell Beach, Cali. The exhibit offers plenty of wildlife images, too. Especially outstanding is Mike Matthews A Perfect Pair, showing two great blue herons huddled together, facing each other. The Estero photographers macro photography images have been published in magazines including Birds and Blooms, Spotlight of Southwest Florida, Bass Masters and Kentucky Homes and Gardens. And, of course, there are portraits. Shelley Lakes Daniel gives us a close-up of a man looking straight at us. And Robert Schwartzmans Man at Ferry Building is a study in light and shadows, as he shows us minimal parts of a mans face seen from one-quarter view, with only certain elements of his features lit. The image is difficult to interpret at first; the majority of the photograph is black, with some seemingly random pieces of white. Ms. Carrier, one of the jurors, says that while she considered the technical and artistic merits of the images, she also considered risk, asking, How much of a risk did a photographer take and how successful were the results? The highest marks, she writes, Went to the images that not only sparked my visual interest but also showed daring and enticed me to look for deeper meanings or intentions. I encourage all of the participants to doggedly hone their craft while being open to experimentation and taking risks, she writes in her jurors statement. It is only through such discipline and courage that they will develop their own, unique aesthetic voice.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 16-22, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYStepping out with drones: The latest dance craze?Theres art. And then theres gimmickry. Its pretty easy to tell the two apart while watching Americas Got Talent on NBC or its original show, Britains Got Talent on YouTube. (Some might say the entire show is one big gimmick itself. And they do have a point. But yet, there are moments of sheer artistry that surpass the schlockiness and scripted moments of reality TV, moments when the artistry cannot be denied.) I started thinking about this when watching Britains Got Talent on YouTube. One of the contestants was Flying Bebop, a dance act that incorporates drones. In the auditions, the act consisted of two breakdancers, a young woman and a young man from London, and dozens of drones. I wasnt overwhelmed, although the act did have potential. When Flying Bebop came back to perform in the semi-finals, though, the woman was gone (with no explanation), and the act consisted of just the man, dressed in white, like an astronaut. He took off his helmet, did some tumbles and spins and ducked the buzzing drones while Coldplays A Sky Full of Stars played. I was underwhelmed. The performance seemed less about the dancing and more about the drones. Look at the drones! it seemed to be saying. Look how they can all move together in formation!I wasnt impressed. The entire performance was unimaginative. I dont hate technology, but I have to admit, I hate drones. Or maybe I should say that Im just grumpy about them, at least when it comes to everyday life. I foresee a future where the air is clutter ed with them. (I hope Im wrong.) To me, they seem unsafe, unregulated and an incredible invasion of privacy. (The current May/June issue of Consumers Digest has a cover story about drones: Recreational Drones Out of Control: New Safety & Privacy Laws Are on the Horizon.) And from the ads Ive seen promoting them as Fathers Day gifts, it appears that anyone can buy and operate a drone. Early this April, an out-of-control drone with a video camera crashed into an upper-level condo on Marco Island. (Some reports say it was the 17th floor, others say it was the 20th.) The Ohio man controlling the drone was not charged. But drones as part of a dance act? I was willing to be impressed. The problem with the Flying Bebop performances was that it wasnt very good art. It seemed to be more about the technology and the novelty of using drones with dance. It reminded me of how some sciencefiction movies can be so bad, with poor dialogue, shaky plot and lack of character development, because the people involved are too in love with special effects and computer-generated images and dont realize that a good movie needs more than that. (And I love science-fiction movies.) Then, recently, on the second episode of Americas Got Talent, there was another dance act with drones: Elevenplay, from Japan. I was knocked out by the sheer artistry and creativity of the group. Like Flying Bebop, they incorporated dance with music and drones. But it was a completely different experience. It was magical, mystical. At first, you werent even sure what was happening as lights hovered on a darkened stage. But the lights were attached to drones, pulsing in sync with an electronic beat, changing color from white to red or pink. Elevenplays performance consisted of five women in ethereal white dresses, dancing with drones that hovered above them, then, in one instance, encircled them in a spiral. It was as if fairies or fireflies were dancing around them. The instrumental they danced to, 4 Drones by Setsuya Kurotaki, sounded like electronic music by Robert Fripp or Brian Eno. I was captivated, and have watched the video of the performance at least a dozen times. Whereas Flying Bebop looked like something thrown together in the hopes of winning a million dollars, Elevenplay took everything into consideration: lighting, music, choreography, costume. It all worked together to make art. The playful choreography (by Mikiko, whos also choreographed for Japanese metal group Babymetal and pop group Perfume), reminded me of the David Parsons Dance Company or Hubbard Street Dance Chicago. According to a Reality Blurred article online by Andy Behnart, Elevenplay was the opening act for Lady Gagas 2014 world tour, artRAVE: The ARTPOP Ball. Two years ago, they presented a drone-and-dance performance in Tokyo called Drone-Augmented Amazingness. (Though there were only five women onstage for the Americas Got Talent audition, with five men backstage handling the technology, other videos show six or even a dozen dancers.) They were only on stage for two minutes, but I couldve watched them for two hours. You can watch the videos on YouTube or nbc.com and compare Elevenplay and Flying Bebop yourself. True artists know its not about having a gimmick, its about making art out of what you have, about using material in atypical ways. Its about making art thats bigger than the piece itself, that brings viewers or readers or listeners to another, deeper place. After all, all writers have the same 26 letters in the English alphabet to work with; its how you put them together and what you do with them that counts. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com

To play otherwise would essentially be selfdefeating. For example, consider this deal where South is in four spades and West leads the queen of hearts. Declarer wins with the king and draws three rounds of trumps, ending in dummy. The three of clubs is then led to the jack, losing to Wests queen. What should West play next? Actually, there is only one card he can return to defeat the contract: the jack of diamonds. If he leads that card, South goes down; if he leads any other card, South makes four spades. The jack is the killing play because declarer cannot then avoid the loss of three diamond tricks regardless of what he does. But if West leads the ace of diamonds or a low diamond, South can hold himself to two diamond losers with proper play. How can West know that the jack of diamonds and only the jack of diamonds is the right play? West sees that declarer has five trump tricks, the A-K of hearts and the ace of clubs. It is also fairly obvious that South took a club finesse at trick five with a holding that included the K-J. This brings declarer to nine sure tricks. If West also credits South with the king of diamonds, he might as well give up and go home. Instead, he must assume that East has the king and that declarer has three diamonds. To do otherwise, as we said earlier, is a form of self-destruction.

YesMorgan Freeman is in Now You See Me 2, and because everyone loves his voice, the film opens and closes with him narrating the same phrase: Seeing is believing, but is it truth? Depends on your perspective. The quote taps into the challenges and pleasures of movies (such as this one) that are based on deception: The viewer knows he cant trust what hes seeing, and that theres an ulterior motive, secret deal and/or hidden motivation behind everything that appears on screen. Part of the fun is the guessing game of figuring out what theyre scheming; the other part comes from the ingenuity and wow factor with what they pull off. Set 18 months after the first movie Now You See Me (2013), this sequel starts with Four Horsemen magicians Merritt (Woody Harrelson), Daniel (Jesse Eisenberg) and Jack (Dave Franco) laying low and taking orders from their leader, FBI Agent Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo). Theyre soon joined by the perky and energetic Lula (Lizzy Caplan, a newcomer to the series). Their big comeback doesnt go as planned, howeer, and they wake up in Macau, China. Their kidnapper, the presumed dead Walter (Daniel Radcliffe), forces them to steal a powerful computer chip that will enable him to tap into any electronic device in the world. Nothing more needs to be revealed about the plot; let it suffice to say that Mr. Freeman, Michael Caine, Mr. Harrelson doing a Matthew McConaughey impression and the entire city of London play major roles. Director Jon Chus (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) challenge is in executing the trickery in a fun way that keeps us engaged and doesnt seem completely ridiculous when explained at films end. In this he has succeeded. Whats interesting is that the heist elements stealing an object, breaking into a building, impersonating others are more engaging than the magic bits, and heres why: We understand the heists and how theyre done, and we can reasonably fantasize about pulling off something similar ourselves. The magic, however, isnt always explained How does Daniel disappear into a sidewalk? And how does Lula make a bird fly out of a guys pants? so sometimes were forced to suspend disbelief when the curious among us (like me) would really like to know how they do that. As a whole, though, Now You See Me 2 is clever and enjoyable, with the fact that its largely far-fetched and unrealistic a large part of its charm. Do yourself a favor and dont even bother trying to figure it out. Just smile and go along for the ride. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Isla Fisher was one of the Four Horsemen in the rst lm; her character doesnt appear here for reasons explained early on.

YesFor years, Finding Dory was a sequel that wasnt going to happen. Then inspiration struck director Andrew Stanton, and the result is a movie that maybe shouldnt have happened after all. This is a sweet, occasionally funny, and sometimestedious sequel to Pixar Animations 2003 breakout hit Finding Nemo; you will enter with great excitement and exit with mild disappointment. Everyones favorite blue tang fish, Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), misses her parents. The film opens with young Dory (Sloane Murray) and her loving parents (Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton) patiently trying to teach her how to always make it back home to their reef. Being the forgetful fish that she is, she loses them anyway. Nowadays Dory lives a cozy life with Marlin (Albert Brooks) and Nemo (Hayden Rolence), but cant shake the desire to find her long-lost parents. This takes her, Marlin and Nemo on an adventure to the Marine Life Institute where she thinks she last saw her folks. Numerous newfound friends assist in her quest, including an octopus named Hank (Ed ONeil), a whale shark named Destiny (Kaitlin Olson), a beluga whale named Bailey (Ty Burrell) and two sea lions named Fluke (Idris Elba) and Rudder (Dominic West). Mr. Stantons screenplay is episodic; it sends Dory on a seemingly endless journey that she sometimes forgets why shes on meaning we cant trust what she thinks or says. Therefore, as Dory, Marlin and Nemo go from one detour to the next, it never feels like theyre moving forward or getting any closer to Dorys parents. Every obstacle they could possibly face they do face, and as a result the ending is arbitrary and anti-climactic its necessary and inevitable rather than earned and organic. Children might not notice this, but itll be painfully obvious to parents trying to keep the kids sitting still. Still, the animation is superb, especially in 3D: The water flows around the fish with almost surreal calm, always a bit darker and murkier than the more crisp and clear fresh air. The detail on the animals is also impressive, especially Hank, whos a mimic octopus (actually a septopus hes missing a tentacle) able to camouflage into his surroundings at a moments notice to remain inconspicuous. Pixar animators called Hank the hardest character theyve ever worked on, and given the numerous changes he makes to blend in, and the way he moves, its easy to see why. Finding Dory is far from a total bust, and clearly clearly this isnt just a selfish cash grab like many sequels are. It doesnt even set up for a third movie, and given the avarice that governs Hollywood, that deserves credit. If only it were better on its own. You want it to be good, and you might lie to yourself and think its higher quality than it actually is. Its enjoyable, but needs to be better. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Per imdb.com, the International Movie Database: With more than 25 million likes, Dory is the most-liked character on Facebook from any Disney or Pixar lm.

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.

Dont get me wrong: High-quality stainless steel flatware is a pleasure to behold. But even the cheapest silver plate rings like a bell when you ping it. Still, its a pain because you always have to keep it polished if you use it, right? Wrong! When we broke up my grandmothers house, there was a dinner fork from Grandmas old everyday service of 1847 Rogers Bros. She had given the set to my sister but had kept a fork to use when beating eggs and such it was a heavy piece. It was blackened with tarnish from sitting in the drawer for so long. My mom washed it and started carrying it with her lunch every day to work. After a week or so of use, that fork shone like new she probably didnt even toweldry the piece each day, either. When shabby became chic about 15 years ago, people began selling mixed sets of vintage flatware theyd assemble a set with a spoon from this set, a fork from that and so on, and it was fun. I love collecting old flatware because you never know what you will find. Victorians had especially interesting pieces aspic servers, pickle forks, sardine servers and such so its easy to build a cool collection. So heres a tip: Dig through those bins. Dont worry that something is covered in tarnish some dealers tell me thats how you know theres still plenty of silver on a piece because only the silver turns black with tarnish. Watch for pitting, where the silver has worn away to expose the base metal. You can do as my mom did, and watch the piece clean itself with use over time. Or you can clean gently with silver paste or cream even toothpaste works in a pinch. Dont use any of those dip cleaners theyre too harsh and will strip away the patina. But whatever you do, enjoy! scott SIMMONS email@example.com COLLECTORS CORNERIts easy to keep silver shining; just dont overclean it LOOK WHAT I FOUNDFound: Antiques and Memories, 1788 Fowler St., Fort Myers; 226-1992 or antiquesandmemories.net. Cost: $3. The Skinny: The fork Im holding first was made in 1904, and the pattern probably wasnt made long after World War I ended in 1918, as styles became more streamlined. But what a glorious pattern it is, with its knots of vines and bunches of grapes surrounding the edges of the handles. This box of silver plate flatware had lots of interesting pieces in it. Unfortunately, the pieces had been cleaned a bit too well notice theres no patina, or tarnish, between the grapes or delineating the veins of the grape leaves. Some of that will return with use. Meantime, Ill stick a fork in this. Im done. Scott Simmons 1847 Rogers Bros. Vintage pattern forksTHE FIND: COURTESY PHOTOThis 1847 Rogers Bros. fork, in the Vintage pattern, first was made in 1904.

When it was sold at a Cowan auction in December 2015, this 16-inch vase was described as a hand-painted porcelain Chinese Export vase in the shape of a fish in water amid lotus blossoms. The condition description mentions some minor paint loss and damage to the fins. Fish have special meaning to the Chinese, so a search for the story led to an extra explanation of the vase. The color and shape of the fish identifies it as a koi, a variety of carp. The breed originated in China and was named about 500 B.C. Chinese invaders took the fish with them to Japan, and by the early 1800s, Japanese farmers bred the koi as pets and for food in winter. But there is more to koi history. Legend says a school of koi swam upstream to get to the top of the Dragon Gate mountain. Most of the fish turned back at the waterfall, but one reached the top, and the gods rewarded it by turning it into a dragon. It is now thought to be the image of power, strength, perseverance, longevity, good fortune and a fulfilled destiny. Putting the vase in a home brings all these traits. And it adds beauty while displayed on a table. Q: We have a 1950s-s coffee table stamped Declaration by Drexel on the bottom. It also has numbers and /61. There is a circle of 12 inlaid wood dots in the middle of the top. The top is 60 inches by 22 inches and the table is about 15 inches high. What is it worth? A: Mid-century modern is collectible now. It seems people want what their grandparents had, not what they grew up with. The Declaration line of Drexel was designed by Kipp Stewart and Stewart McDougall, popular California designers. Drexel Furniture Co. was founded in Drexel, N.C., in 1903. Drexel is now part of the Heritage Home Group in High Point, N.C., and the brand is called Drexel Heritage. The numbers indicate your walnut table with rosewood inlay was made in March 1961. Some dealers in Mid-century modern pieces price this table at over $1,000, but one sold at auction a few years ago for $275 and its been offered online for less. Q: I have an E.T. doll made by Kamar International Inc. The tag says its made of acrylic fiber and crushed walnut shells. The skin is peeling a little. How can I preserve it? I keep it covered with tissue paper and plastic. A: Proper storage is imperative. Acids in tissue paper and gases given off by plastic will cause the material to deteriorate. Dont use ordinary tissue paper or plastic to store your doll. Wrap the doll in acid-free tissue paper, unbleached muslin or a 100 percent cotton white sheet or pillowcase that has been washed. Store it in an acid-free box, not an airtight container, and keep it in a dark place not subject to temperature extremes or excess humidity. Q: I bought some stainless steel flatware at a house sale and would like to know more about it. It has a flat finish and horizontal grooved lines on the handles. There is black inside the grooves, but its worn off on most pieces. The pieces are marked Dansk Designs Germany around an emblem that has four swimming ducks on it. When were these made? A: Dansk is an American company started by Ted and Martha Nierenberg in 1954. The couple asked Danish designer Jens Quistgaard to design a line of flatware they could sell in the U.S. Your flatware is Variation VI, which was first made in 1957 and was made in Germany, Denmark and Finland. Quistgaard designed other flatware patterns as well dinnerware, serving pieces and other items for Dansk. After several changes in ownership, Dansk became part of Lenox in 2009.

Hetty Feather>> When: Through June 26 >> Where: Asolo Repertory Theatre, 5555 N. Tamiami Trail, Sarasota >> Cost: tickets start at $18 (special family ticket packages for families of four at 15 percent off; two family members must be 18 or younger) >> Information: (941) 351-8000 or (800) 361-8388, or asolorep.org BY NANCY STETSONnstetson@ oridaweekly.comTheater is all about taking risks. And Michael Donald Edwards, producing artistic director of the Asolo Repertory Theatre in Sarasota, is taking a big one presenting the American premiere of Hetty Feather, a show from Londons West End based on a childrens book of the same name. The story, though well known in the UK, isnt a familiar one on this side of the pond. Its difficult to describe an equivalent, Mr. Edwards says about the book, although he says author Dame Jacqueline Wilson is beloved throughout the country (shes sold more than 38 million books there and was named a Waterstones Childrens Laureate winner in 2005). Adding to the risk, Mr. Edwards had not seen the entire show, only bits and pieces of it in rehearsal. But knowledge of the show, and its recommendation, had come to him through trusted friends and colleagues. I thought, this is a really cool thing to take a risk on, he says. Weve been talking for a couple of years about a family initiative Rather than snowbirds, how do we reach younger people with kids? Producing Hetty Feather is the beginning of examining whether the Asolo has a family audience for shows at the same level of talent and production of everything else the company does, he adds. Described as a combination of Dickens, Orphan Annie and the circus, it tells the story of Hetty Feather, a red-haired girl in the 19th century who was left as a baby in a cruel foundling hospital. She runs away and joins the circus, in search of her mother. The staging makes creative use of everyday objects such as ladders and wooden planks. The actors perform aerial circus acts and play multiple roles. Musicians play live on stage. There are no children in the cast, but The Telegraph, calling it ingenious, wrote, Hetty Feather gives Matilda a run for its money. The production, adapted for the theater by Emma Reeves, was a 2015 Olivier Award Nominee for Best Family Entertainment. With the exception of the lead, the entire Asolo cast has come from London to reprise their roles. Hetty is performed by Chloe Mantripp, who spent two years specializing in aerial and acrobalance at Circomedia, a world-renowned center for contemporary circus and physical theater. She has also performed in Hetty Feather in the West End and as part of its UK tour. Everyone in the show, Mr. Edwards says, is a triple threat. They sing, they act and they do circus tricks Its a fusion of acting and story with circus skills. Its definitely hugely entertaining for the whole family. Bringing a circus show to Sarasota is a perfect marriage because of Sarasotas historic association with the Ringling Brothers Circus. I dont think a story about a feisty little girl who wants to run away to join the circus could find a more suitable home in the U.S. in which to premiere, producer Kenny Wax says in a press release. The run of Hetty Feather at the Asolo Rep is the first time the show has played in the United States. If it works here, then it will have a life in America, says Mr. Edwards.

NOTCHES IN YOUR TEETHIf youve noticed notches in the enamel of your teeth at the point along which the gums meet the tooth (known as the gingival margin), you likely have a form of tooth loss known as abfraction. is loss of tooth structure is not caused by decay. Instead, it can be traced to forces exerted on the teeth associated with tooth grinding (known as bruxism). While there is some disagreement as to how abfraction occurs, it is widely accepted that people who grind their teeth subject them to inordinately high forces that cause enamel to be shed.

Mann BY ALAN SCULLEYFlorida Weekly CorrespondentDancing With The Stars performers Maskim and Valentin Chmerkovskiy and their Maks & Val On Tour: Our Way production hit the road ion June 15 for a 46-show trek that includes a stop at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall on Saturday, June 18. The brothers had just 2 weeks to take the show from the drawing board to the stage. The tour comes right on the heels of wrapping production on the next season of Dancing With The Stars. Maks, after spending 14 seasons as a contestant on the show, now serves as a guest judge. Val, meanwhile, returned for his 10th season on the show. Both brothers have also been part of past touring productions of Dancing With The Stars. Their involvement with that show is a main reason full production rehearsals couldnt commence until right before the first date of the tour. Beyond the dancing, the Our Way show gives the brothers a chance to tell their life story. Its quite a tale a true modern-day example of the United States living up to its reputation as the land of opportunity. The brothers came to Brooklyn from the Ukraine in 1994 with their parents when they were kids and have gone on to become stars in the dance world and co-owners of Dance With Me Dance Studios. Maks was the first to get into dancing, starting back in the Ukraine at his parents suggestion when he was in boarding school around kindergarten age. It was not love at first sight. When I started dancing, I just didnt get it, he said. I also was very shy. For 10 years, I struggled competing. I couldnt win. That changed when the family got to America and Maks began to see dance as a way to earn money. As a 15-year-old, he walked into a Brooklyn restaurant with his dance partner and offered to do a show for $25 a night. When they were able to show their boss trophies that had won in competitions, their pay was bumped up to $30. Maks won trophies lots of them and reached a career-high No. 2 ranking in Latin dancing. Val did even better, becoming a two-time World Latin Dance champion and 14-time U.S. National Latin Dance Champion. These accomplishments paved their way to joining Dancing With The Stars. Today, both brothers credit Dancing With The Stars for being a careermaking, life-changing opportunity one that put them in position for their current tour.

Can you tell me if it will be back for another season? Nina H., via emailA: Starz has just announced that Jamie (Sam Heughan), Clare (Caitriona Balfe) and the rest of the crew have been granted at least two more seasons to tell Diana Gabaldons eight-book (soon to be nine) series. Each season covers the events of one book; Dragonfly in Amber concludes July 9. Season three will adapt Voyager, and season four will tell the story of Drums of Autumn.Q: Reading your interview about Rebecca Wisockys experience on The X-Files made me wonder if it will be back for another season. Has it been renewed? Daniel F., Birmingham, AlabamaA: Everyone David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson and Chris Carter is on board for another season. Right now, they are in negotiations with Fox to return for the 2017-18 season. Hey, we waited 10 years for the reboot, so whats two more for another season, right? And that reminds me: Its time for another round of Canceled or Renewed. Here are some Fox shows that wont live to see another season: American Idol, Bordertown, Cooper Barretts Guide to Surviving Life, Famous, Grandfathered, The Grinder (it pains me to write that this brilliant comedy is no more), Knock Knock Live, Minority Report and Second Chance. Its contest time. My favorite paranormal author, Victoria Laurie, has a book coming out July 26. A Grave Prediction is the 14th installment in the Psychic Eye Mysteries.

Closed Sunday. The Details: A $9 dish called Eighth Street Fish Tacos is a staple on the printed menu at Captain & Krewe. Only on Tuesdays does the specials chalkboard proclaim: Tuesday Fish Tacos: $15.99. My savvy dining companion knew this, and thats why she insisted on C&K when we made a recent lunch date. It was a good thing I hadnt eaten much breakfast, because lunch consisted of not one but two oversized, soft flour tortillas loaded with perfectly blackened chunks of fresh grouper on top of shredded romaine, cabbage and cheese and pico de gallo (chunks of tomato, little bits of jalapeno and onion and a hint of fresh lime). The salsa served in a little plastic container on the side was simply the best Id ever had and different from any Id ever had. When our server asked the Oaxacan chef to come out and tell us about it, we learned the complex sauce is her own creation of dried arbol chiles toasted in hot oil and combined with tomato, onion, garlic, cilantro and salt, all pureed in a blender. I asked for a second serving as I tucked into my second taco. One More Thing: Instead of the regular black beans and rice, my friend asked for a side of seaweed salad to accompany her Tuesday Fish Tacos. She was gracious enough to offer me a bite, and as much as I enjoyed my beans and rice, I might be tempted to request the substitution next time and there will be a next time. Soon.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Coastal Peruvian Seafood & Grill, 5477 Airport-Pulling Road N., Naples; 631-6943 This lovely restaurant provides a refreshing space in which to dine on exceptionally good food. Owners Chris and Fabiola Santos are hospitable and helpful as they introduce guests to their menu. Of the various ceviche variations, we enjoyed the Ceviche 200 Miles, a sprightly blend of shrimp, squid, mussels, fish, red onions, sweet potato and corn that had a bite but wasnt fiery hot. Marina sliders held fried red snapper fillets topped with aji amarillo-pineapple chimichurri on firm, yeasty minibuns. The Poseidon Fest was a montage of seafood cooked in the restaurants Josper oven, which renders proteins crisp outside, juicy within. And the Savage Tacu Tacu was a great rendition of rice and lentil pancakes with a tender skirt steak and sweet plantains. For dessert: the chocolucuma, a pie with an Oreo crumb crust, middle of caramelflavored lucuma and a drizzle of chocolate sauce. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2016 Fernandez the Bull-Midtown, 3375 Pine Ridge Road, Naples; 6539097 Local lovers of Cuban food have twice as much to thank the Fernandez family for now that theres a second Fernandez the Bull to patronize. For 25-plus years, the first one has existed in various locations. Now a chic-looking sibling is operating on Pine Ridge Road with indoor and outdoor seating, a full bar and a terrific staff. Start with a well-chilled and minty guava mojito. Savor some beef empanadas (one dish of eight serves two or more) or crisp fried calamari and then move on to an entre like the chicken with mojo and garlic sauce or shrimp and mussels in white wine and tomato sauce. Sides of moros (rice and black beans), fried yucca or fried plantains are all great choices. And dont skip dessert. We loved the guava mango mousse cheesecake. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2015 La Bazenne, 474 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 682-8623 Whether its breakfast, lunch or dinner you fancy, La Bazenne is prepared to serve it to you with proper French style and flair. A cozy little spot on Fifth next to Osteria Tulia, its operated by Martine and Bernard Giacometti. His parents have operated the original La Bazenne in France for 40 years. Whether its crepe, salads or burgers early in the day or the more complex and interesting dinner lineup, the fare is tres magnifique. The octopus salad is outstanding (rendered tender via sous vide preparation) and served with broccoli rabe, cherry tomatoes and lemon verbena pesto. A chevre starter with cherry tomatoes, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds and mixed greens was also excellent. Entrees of diver scallops with English peas, scallops and pommes fondants were elegant and perfect, as was the crisp lavender duck with Florida orange glaze, kohlrabi and pommes almond. A cheese plate and aphrodisiaque crepe provided a wondrous ending to a flawless meal. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed July 2014 Poached (formerly Toast) of Bonita, 24600 S. Tamiami Trail, Bonita Springs; 221-8256 With its sweet homemade banana bread, creative French bread stuffings and flights of food fancy (see the I Dont Want Salad Salad topped with a burger and fries), Poached torches some of the predictability of going out for breakfast or lunch. If youre bananas about fruit for the morning meal, tuck into the banana-bread French toast topped with bananas. Cant decide between a BLT and an egg salad sandwich? Poached puts both together in one butt ery croissant. From the four eggs Benedict variations offered, which include a vegetarian one for those more health-conscious than I, the Country Benedict was a filling combination of flaky biscuits (swapped for the usual toasted English muffins), peppery pork sausage patties instead of Canadian bacon, sauted mushrooms and onions. The eggs were perfectly poached, with silken whites and sunny, creamy yolks. Even ho-hum chicken salad gets a tasty makeover stuffed into a pineapple with dried cherries and other goodies. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed August 2014 Trattoria Abruzzo, Pavilion Shopping Center, 835 Vanderbilt Beach Road, Naples; 596-8010 The Laccetti family has developed a loyal following even though this popular dining spot sits well back from the street on the Vanderbilt Beach Road side of the Pavilion Shopping Center. Youll find some surprises on the menu, like the calamari Adriatico (squid sauted with artichoke hearts, kalamata olives and cherry tomatoes), and house-made agnolotti nonno Paolo (large, tender halfmoons of ravioli stuffed with Parmigiano and fontina cheese topped with porcini mushrooms and a hint of truffle oil). Snapper Livornese consisted of a goodsized fillet topped with kalamatas, capers and anchovies in a light marinara sauce, and the pollo ortolona was an impressive plate of boneless chicken breast with shiitake mushrooms, herbs, garlic and demi-glace with grand-reserve balsamic and a load of fresh arugula. We finished with a lovely lemon tart just as a singer began serenading the crowd with Italian classics. Service was friendly but the timing of courses needed polish. Beer and wine served.

CUISINEYabba Island Grill shifts focus to sink stake in steak businessSo if a restaurant claims to open at 5:30 p.m. and has accepted your reservation for 5:30 p.m., what time would you expect to be seated? If you thought the answer would be 5:30 p.m. as we did, then you would have been as surprised as we and about 20 other early-bird diners were on a recent Saturday evening when we all found ourselves standing around in the hot sun outside of Yabba Island Grill waiting for it to open at 5:30. And 5:35. And 5:40. The crowd grew larger and more restive. Although this long-established restaurant has recently changed concepts from Caribbean to steak, it apparently still runs on island time. It was closer to 5:45 p.m. before the first group of now thoroughly disgruntled diners was seated. To make matters worse, almost all the parties were clustered in a small front dining area that instantly grew noisy and close. Patrons were handed the early dining menu, good from 5:30-6 p.m. It offers 10 entrees plus several grilled fish options for two for $16.20 per person, including a bottle of wine. When a couple of people inquired about a larger selection, their servers replied, Oh, I can bring you the real menu if youd like. The real menu? How about the full menu, which was what we asked for. It would have been simple enough to bring it along with the early dining menu and would likely have resulted in higher checks (and tips) had the staff not assumed we were all there for a cheap date. I might brush off this sort of bush league behavior from some new kid on the block, but Yabba has been around for a long, long time. Part of the Culinary Concepts group that includes Chops City Grill in Naples and Bonita, Pazzo in Naples and Blue Water Bistro in Coconut Point, Yabba is run by savvy restaurateurs who know better than this. Mercifully, once everyone was seated and given the menus they desired, things improved immeasurably. Habanero cornbread (the habanero was quite mild) and garlic cheddar biscuits with three butters made a good start. And the dining rooms remake is a welcome departure from the relentless island palette that ruled for so long. The rooms are now a sea of blue rugs, walls, canvas sails suspended from the ceilings, upholstery broken up by mahogany framing large windows and roomy chairs. The result is cool and peaceful. You could dine well on appetizers here, as there are nine choices plus fresh oysters on the half shell, four sushi rolls and assorted soups and salads. The chicken and lemongrass wontons with Shanghai sauce and toasted sesame seeds ($8.90) were beautifully presented on a long dish, with the four wontons lined up in a spicy-sweet sauce dusted with sesame seeds and garnished with julienned carrots. The wontons were firm and nicely seasoned. Jumbo crab cakes ($15.90) were also lovely, not quite jumbo but relatively good sized, and bathed in a tangy citrus-mustard sauce that complemented them well. The crab was evident and not dumbed down by a plethora of breadcrumbs. An entre of citrus mahi ($29.50) was puzzling, however, as we could detect no citrus in the citrus-butter sauce that had to compete with the shrimp, mussels, sundried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, rice and fresh veggies (zucchini, summer squash, etc.) that shared the plate. The fish was somewhat dry, a sign it spent a bit too much time in the saut pan, but the vegetables were perfectly tender-crisp. The best dish was the 8-ounce filet ($30), which was tender, cooked to a perfect medium rare, served with properly cooked vegetables and crisp, hot steak fries. I ordered the Yabba Island steak sauce ($2) with it, which our server described as similar to A1 sauce. Again, its all about phrasing. How about, Its a tangy blend of seasonings that work well with steak? And then there was dessert. We settled on The Vinny, described on the menu as a melting chocolate cake with Anglaise accented with homemade raspberry sauce and a scoop of freshly made gelato of the evening ($8.50). We were OK with the fact that there was no freshly made gelato that night clearly, there had been a rough start that day so vanilla ice cream would do. But we were expecting a warm cake with a lava-like middle. What arrived instead was a cooler-than-roomtemperature, round cake with an interior resembling thick fudge sitting in a pool of Anglaise and raspberry sauce. It looked lovely and, served warm, this might have been fine. Served cold, it was just so-so. There is much to like about Yabba. The change in dcor is a much-needed upgrade. The dining room looks great and, if the staff would spread the diners out rather than clump them into one small section, customers could fully appreciate those changes. The menu has a lot of appealing dishes, whether you want a few small plates or crave a good-sized steak at a not-so-hefty price. But there is a lack of attention to detail here that Ive not experienced when dining at Chops and that does not fit the Culinary Concepts model. There are plenty of other places to dine along Fifth Avenue South, especially during the slow summer months. Yabba needs to up its game to ensure that potential customers dont find a more hospitable spot a few doors down.

Golf courses a focal point for Quail West enhancementsAs part of its substantial member approved and financed club renovation initiative that is now underway, Quail West Golf & Country Club is investing approximately $12 million to enhance the playability of its two award-winning championship golf courses that were originally designed by heralded golf course architect Arthur Hills more than two decades ago. The golf course renovation is one component of a member approved and financed initiative budgeted at approximately $30 million that reflects the communitys mission to be the premier private residential country club in Southwest Florida. Designed to meet the needs of Quail Wests growing membership and the changing lifestyle characteristics of the communitys members, the improvements will provide the latest in physical facilities and state of the art technology while further solidifying Quail Wests position as Southwest Floridas leading luxury golf course community. Quail West has long been acknowledged for providing one of Southwest Floridas finest golf experiences. The clubs amenity enhancement initiative will further that legacy. While the original design and character of the communitys Preserve and Lakes courses will remain essentially intact, the renovation initiative is focused on improving the playability of both courses for golfers of all skill levels. The renovations will address enhancements to the irrigation systems, green complexes, the adjacent bunker, fringe, and grass areas, and the fairways. New irrigation technologies will be introduced to embrace best water conservation practices and to reduce overall operating costs. The golf course enhancements will be overseen by J. Drew Rogers, a member of the American Society of Golf Course Architects who is highly regarded for his ability to undertake golf course renovation projects. Rogers is intimately familiar with Quail Wests golf courses, having worked directly with Arthur Hills to design two nine-hole layouts that would later comprise the Lakes Course. Improvements to the Preserve Course are underway and the course will remain closed as the renovations proceed. The Preserve Course is expected to re-open by January, 2017. A similar schedule will be implemented for the Lakes Course with work beginning in spring, 2017 and the course re-opening by January, 2018. Rogers regards Quail Wests signature Preserve golf course as a layout with great natural beauty. The Preserve Course is encircled by a large nature preserve and enhanced by a lush landscape and strategically placed water hazards to create a challenging but fair test of golf for all players at various levels of skill. The Preserve Course plays to 6,841 yards from the back tees and takes the golfer on a meandering journey through verdant woodland areas. It is easy to get distracted by the stunning beauty of this course, particularly on the signature par three second hole where a beautifully manicured and expansive bed of flowers provides a striking display of color. A wide array of wildlife is often seen on the Preserve Course and in the surrounding forest that includes cypress trees 300 to 400 years old. Tight, tree-lined and undulating fairways, strategically placed bunkers, marshy areas, numerous water hazards and large, challenging greens with numerous tiers and slopes immediately bring golfers down to earth. As is the case on any well designed course, precision and good shot making are rewarded. While the course can be intimidating to the eye, depth is often deceiving. Learning what the course is willing to give is, as always, the key to success. The flags are equipped for laser link distance measurements. Five sets of tees allow golfers to play from distances that are appropriate for their skill levels. Whatever that level might be, the scenic beauty and the sense of being removed make the Preserve Course a delight. The 7,041 yard Lakes Course offers wide-open vistas across a system of shimmering lakes. Numerous fairway and green-side berms are affectionately referred to as Hills Hills. The fairways and rough are Tiffworth 419 Bermuda grass and the greens are a Champions Bermuda strand. The layout is fairly open and has a links quality to it, although there are numerous water hazards and marsh areas to negotiate. The flags on the Lakes Course are also equipped for laser link distance measurements. In true Hills fashion, there are a variety of bunkers to avoid and undulating greens that can make holing out in regulation a challenge. Again, distances can be deceiving on this course and results are directly related to ones knowledge and understanding of how the course is meant to be played. Thoughtful and well executed shot making is rewarded. Hills has incorporated bail-out areas on every hole. Knowing where they are and when to use them is a key to success on the Lakes Course. In addition to the enhancements of the Preserve and Lakes courses irrigation systems and green complexes, the club renovation initiative includes improvements to the golf practice area that will be enlarged to provide increased preparation and instructional space. The enlarged practice area will further the members enjoyment of the clubs golf experience. At the same time, Phase II of the initiative to be undertaken and completed next year will include a new golf pro shop that will offer a wider array of golf equipment and apparel selections. Quail West is located east of Interstate 75, one mile south of Bonita Beach Road. Take Exit 116 (Bonita Beach Road) east, turn right on Bonita Grande Drive, and proceed to Quail Wests main entrance.

Kalea Bays first tower reaches 17th floor Clubhouse also under constructionKalea Bay, a gated, resort-lifestyle 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 mid-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 17th floor, which is helping buyers see the value of purchasing now. From my office in the sales center I can observe the construction progress on a daily basis, 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/4bath plans with 3,755 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with three-bedrooms plus den and three-and-a-half baths, have 3,835 total square feet while residences 3 and 4 are four-bedroom/ four-bath plans with 3,921 total square feet. All residents of Kalea Bay will revel in gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence, 9-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 two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. Those beaches include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally in 2015, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9, said Wilson. 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, said Wilson. Our clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community. 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 will 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 KaleaBay.com. Above: The 22-story tower at Kalea Bay will have 120 residences. Right: All master bedrooms offer views of the Gulf of Mexico.
