A2 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 23-29, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY DESIGNER HOME DECOR AT WAREHOUSE PRICES! BEST FURNITURE STORE 2015 COMMENTARYSo what do you do?You get a shooting in Orlando, a shooting in San Bernardino, shootings in Colorado Springs and Roseburg and Chattanooga and Isla Vista and Fort Hood and Washington and Santa Monica and Newton and way back at Columbine High School. You get shootings in-between, and shootings in the U.S. all the way back to Boston, in 1776, when Redcoats shot up colonists who hated taxes and tea. You get shootings in Europe and Asia and Africa and India, too. And even in Australia, not to mention shootings in the Americas. Its a popular and entertaining pastime from the North Pole to the South, apparently shooting people. You get bombings and machete murders as well, all over the planet. So what do you do when you hear bad news break? Do you start waving flowers like a got-dang liberal? Or do you go out and buy a few more weapons because if you dont solve the problem, who will? Given the news, you strongly suspect it will happen to you: You walk into an elementary school or a movie theater or a party bar or Sunday church and some son of a bitch shoots you, along with your friends or family. You dont even get a chance to join the Army, toughen up, and go kill the sucker first. You cant even kiss your mother goodbye, let alone anything else. The solid academic evidence that the contemporary world is significantly less violent than the medieval or Renaissance worlds of Europe in the 12th, the 14th, the 16th or the 18th and 19th centuries is indisputable. But it isnt much comfort when bad news breaks and the world becomes a bloody mess. So what do you do? Do you go out and buy a few more weapons because youre likely to run into a terrorist, and you know damn well the bouncer at the door or the guard in the school or the cop on the street probably isnt going to be able to stop the wacko before people die? Used to be, real terrorists or wackos (same thing) used knives. Jack the Ripper, for example. Not now. Now, they can use airplanes, bombs, guns or even chemicals. Knives, too, of course, but whos worried about that? Heres the answer if youre convinced you or your loved ones may soon be attacked: Yes. If youre in danger and nobodys likely to protect you, you should arm up. I would, if I thought my family could be killed by a terrorist next week, Id arm up, too. Id maybe start with a 9mm and a .45 in handguns, and add a 12-gauge semi-automatic shotgun using doubleought buckshot backed by a small-caliber semi-automatic rifle like a Ruger 10/.22 chambered for magnum rounds. They dont kick much, and with some practice you can point and shoot as fast as you can spit, with precision, inside of 100 yards and farther out if youre good. Hit him in the head, and you can kill any terrorist on the planet with a .22 or a .22 magnum. You can do that with an AR-15 or a Ruger Mini-14 as well, of course, shooting .223 rounds at more than 3,000 feetper-second. That way youre not limited to a terrorist within 50 or 100 yards of you. What if you have to pick a few off at 500 yards, or even farther? No problem with a .223, equivalent to the 5.62 mm military round. For long ranges requiring punch on the other end, of course, you can up the caliber to a .270, a .303, a .30-06, or something bigger as long as youve decided youre OK with collateral damage (ditto on the shotgun). Meaning you shoot innocent people because the round goes through three or four of them before or after it hits the terrorist, if youre very lucky, and stops in a wall. Either that, or youve spent hundreds or even thousands of both hours and dollars practicing, and countless hours cleaning your weapon so you can be ready to shoot with deadly precision. Thats assuming, of course, that theres no wind and youre not scared and youre in fine physical condition so your pulse is ticking along at about 60 to 70 beats per minute and your heartbeat alone doesnt screw up your shooting. And the wacko isnt shooting back at you. Frankly, theres no reason you shouldnt be able to get an old M-79 grenade rifle, a break-open single-round weapon held like a shotgun, firing the 40-by-46mm grenade out to about 400 yards (optimistically) solves a lot of terrorist problems fast. Creates a few other problems too, if you miss or even if you dont. For those Second Amendment purists who have forgotten that the second was written in tandem with the Militia Act of 1792 to guarantee weapons muskets for anybody who served in the militia, and any who could be called up by the president to stop insurrections against the government, I recommend just joining the Army or the Marine Corps, now. That way, theyll train you to use weapons that make all these others look pitiful. Youll be able to call in airstrikes and use 7.62 and .50-cal machine guns and employ shoulder-held Stinger anti-aircraft missiles or AT-4 anti-tank weapons. Let me tell you, that damn terrorist wont even know what hit him. Neither will anybody else hapless enough to be standing anywhere close to him. So thats what you do. Either that, or you start voting for leaders who will stop wackos from getting their hands on assault rifles. t s m c v roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

The tide of war isnt receding, as he famously contended in a speech on the Afghan drawdown in 2011; it is lapping onto our shores. The left hates the notion that George W. Bush kept us safe, but after Sept. 11 a plot set in motion before he took office Bush prevented another significant attack the rest of his presidency, at a time when a follow-on strike here at home seemed all but inevitable. It was easy to take this achievement for granted, especially given that Bushs success itself diminished the urgency people felt about the terror threat. But with two domestic terror attacks in the past six months killing more than 60 people and wounding more than 70, the long stretch of safety at home is harder to dismiss. The rise of terror attacks within the U.S. in addition to the mayhem in San Bernardino and Orlando, there has been a drumbeat of smaller attacks corresponds with ISIS conquering and holding swaths of territory in Syria and Iraq. It isnt a coincidence. John McCain and other hawks warned so often during the Iraq War that if we retreated in the face of the jihadi threat overseas it would follow us home, the argument began to lose its force. But they were right. It is an iron law of nature that if a group like ISIS gets a safe haven, it will use it to train, recruit and propagandize for terror attacks against the West. President Obamas view is that attacks like the one on the Pulse nightclub arent an existential threat. While he certainly doesnt want them to happen and finds them horrible and wrenching, they are the implicit price of what he conceives as a prudently crafted antiISIS strategy in other words, one that doesnt show much urgency about defeating the terror group and limits the resources devoted to fighting it. So long as ISIS looks as though it is successfully resisting its enemies, though, it has a magnetic appeal to potential loyalists in the West. If it is impossible to snuff out the ideology of Islamic radicalism on the battlefield, it is possible to make it look much less alluring. No one likes a loser. ISIS will no longer have such perverse cachet as soon as it is crushed in the field. President Obama is certainly right that a San Bernardino or an Orlando isnt going to bring the country to its knees, but he underestimates the price to American society. Do we want to live in a country where every county agency or nightclub feels compelled to deploy metal detectors and armed guards? President Bush used every tool in his power, from the Patriot Act, the NSA surveillance program and enhanced interrogations to relentless military operations overseas, in his zeal to protect the homeland. President Obama let up the pressure, and what he once dismissed as the JV team is exacting a terrible price. Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. OPINIONA case of buyers remorseIn the wake of the mass murders of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people in Orlando, Donald Trumps assault on the federal judiciary of a few weeks ago seems now like a fender bender, the act of a negligent motorist who barrels through a stop sign, hits a car and just keeps on going as if nothing of consequence has occurred. He keeps his pedal to the metal, the driver behind the wheel of his own campaign, reckless and dangerous to those with whom he shares the road. Until his drivers license is revoked, he is an accident waiting to happen at the intersection of every issue on the road traveled to win the White House. Prior to the mass shooting, Trump toned down his attack on Muslims, saying his suggestion of banning Muslims from entering the U.S. was just him thinking out loud. He soon recanted. A nutcase, homophobic, radicalized American terrorist claimed allegiance to ISIS and mowed down 49 innocents with an assault rifle. In the aftermath, Trump revived his hateful fear mongering. He again proposed banning all Muslim immigrants, including those from any country suspected of harboring terrorists. He also singled out Muslim-Americans as complicit enablers of terrorist acts. Trump marked his reversal by tweeting appreciations to his followers for the many congratulations he received for being right about Muslims the first time around. He renewed his vow to promote religious discrimination against all Muslims here and abroad as president. Now, consider only a month has passed since Trump last made incendiary remarks targeting another other. He suggested differences of diversity characterizing people in our midst make them suspect Americans, too. This time he targeted the ethnicity of a federal judge. His namesake university, Trump University, allegedly committed massive fraud, bilking thousands of guileless students. Trump is named as a defendant in the lawsuits. Somehow, in Trumps mind, Trump Universitys troubles are a national policy issue. He couldnt resist bringing the subject up as yet more evidence of why he deserves our vote. He accused the federal judge presiding over the cases of being incapable of performing his duties. Why? The judge is of Latino descent. Although the judge was born and raised in Indiana, Trump referred repeatedly to U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel as a Mexican. Both of Judge Curiels parents were naturalized U.S. citizens from Mexico. Trumps racist smear did not go over well. All hell broke loose, surprising even Trump, is my guess. But think about it. Trump insinuates that nativeborn Americans of ethnic descent have a permanent question mark branded on their authenticity as Americans. Conservatives made tortured responses in reply to Trumps racial slur, dancing on the head of a pin to try to distinguish Trumps bigotry as separate from the bigot. He is, after all, the presumptive presidential nominee campaigning to become the leader of the free world. House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, R-Wis., didnt mince any words, saying Trumps attack on the judge was the textbook definition of a racist comment. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., responded more like the biblical Peter who denied three times before the cock crowed that he knew Jesus. McConnell refused multiple times to acknowledge Trumps attacks on the judge as racist; he did say he did not agree with the candidates remarks. Trump rebutted his critics. He said his remarks were misconstrued. He made no apology. Meanwhile, Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois became the first Republican in a tight race to publicly disavow supporting Trump. Conservatives remain stuck in the dilemma of their own making. Most have capitulated and resigned themselves to the inevitability of Trumps leadership and are just trying to put a happy face on it. But Trump isnt making it easy for them. He relishes their discomfort. It isnt enough that he won the primaries. He wants to make his fellow Republican naysayers eat dirt. This is their penance for having doubts regarding his fitness for the job. So he has been dishing dirt out to them by the shovelful since becoming the partys presumptive nominee. Just ask any of the partys establishment. Trump has become their worst nightmare. No comment has become their refuge of last resort. Republicans are looking down the barrel of a pending, national convention and another five months of Trump saying what he really thinks. What could possibly go wrong? Losing conservative majorities in the House and the Senate, perhaps? Blowing up the party forever? Still, leading Republican lawmakers havent yet found the courage to repudiate Trumps fitness for occupying the highest office in the land. It is like they are thinking to themselves: We know Trump is a racist demagogue but he is our racist demagogue. We want the Republicans to win the White House. We have to suck it up. You have to wonder when buyers remorse will finally force the recognition among Republicans that the moral bankruptcy required to support Trump isnt worth the price.

With assurance for tomorrow, we are maximizing today every day eres still time...T btn f rr bt.Thirty-six artificial reefs, each comprised of 500 tons of concrete, have been deployed in six offshore locations near Naples and Marco Island over the past year. During deployment missions and in the months afterward, Pure Image Productions of Naples was stationed with cameras on boats and underwater to record not only the sinking of the new reef structures, but the ensuing growth of new reef ecosystems. The result is a 56-minute documentary film, Paradise Reef: The World is Watching, that showcases not only the development of life on and around the underwater reef structures, but also the beauty of the Southwest Florida environment. The documentary gets its Florida television debut at 8 p.m. Thursday, June 30, on WGCU-TV (TV channel 30.1; cable channels 3 and 440; DirecTV channel 30). Extensive underwater footage by world-renowned cinematographer Andy Casagrande shows the amazing growth and abundant marine life on the new artificial reef sites. Interviews with leading environmental conservationists Everglades photographer Clyde Butcher; professor of oceanography and reef expert Haywood Matthews: and officials with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve and others tell the story of the reef and how its development and success are tied to the diverse ecology of the entire Paradise Coast region, which includes Naples, Marco Island, the western portion of Everglades National Park, Big Cypress National Preserve, the Ten Thousand Islands and Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuges, Fakahatchee Strand and Collier-Seminole State Parks, the Picayune Strand State Forest, Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary and more natural areas that provide important waterfiltering pathways to the Gulf of Mexico. The documentarys producers are working with programming officials at WGCU-TV to get information about the program out to other PBS/American Public Television stations. The reef project was accomplished by a joint effort between Collier County and the cities of Naples and Marco Island along with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and NOAA. Funding for the concrete and deployment came from a grant received from BPs Gulf Tourism and Seafood Promotional Fund and from private donations. Reimbursement funding for the Paradise Reef: The World is Watching documentary is provided by the Naples, Marco Island, Everglades Convention and Visitors Bureau through the Collier County tourist development tax.

NEWS OF THE WEIRD BY CHUCK SHEPHERDDistributed by Universal Press SyndicateApp nauseamIn May, the Norwegian Consumer Council staged a live, 32-hour TV broadcast marathon a word-for-word reading of the terms of service for internet applications Instagram, Spotify and more than two dozen others, totaling 900 pages and 250,000 words of legal restrictions and conditions that millions of users voluntarily agree to when they sign up (usually via a mouse click or finger swipe). A council official called such terms bordering on the absurd, as consumers could not possibly understand everything they were legally binding themselves to.Government in action The Defense Department still uses 1980s-era 8-inch floppy disks on computer systems that handle part of Americas nuclear umbrella, including ballistic missiles. Also, according to a May report by the Government Accountability Office, systems using 1970s-era COBOL programing language are still used for key functions of the Justice Department and Internal Revenue Service, among others (including Veterans Affairs, for tracking beneficiary claims). Agencies have recruited retired employees to return to fix glitches in systems long since abandoned by Microsoft and others. In April, police in Boise, Idaho, told KAWO Radio that they will not relax the year-old ban on dachshund racing at the annual Arena-Wiena Extravaganza because all dog-racing in Idaho is illegal. The station had argued that the law intended to target only greyhound racing; that an exception had been carved out for popular dogsled racing (reasoning: individual dogs were not racing each other); and that, in any event, the race course was only about 40 feet long but reported that the authorities were dead serious about the ban. Cant possibly be trueA watchdog agency monitoring charities revealed in May its choice for worst among those helping U.S. veterans: The National Vietnam Veterans Foundation raised more than $29 million from 2010 to 2014 but wound up donating about 2 cents of every dollar toward actual help. The other 98 cents went to administration and fundraising. (Similarly troubling, according to the watchdog, is that the CEO of NVVF is a staff attorney at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.)Unclear on the conceptGainesville performance artist Tom Miller planned a public piece in a downtown plaza during May and June as homage to the music composer John Cages celebrated (which is four minutes and 33 seconds of purposeful silence by all musicians who play on the piece). Miller said his project would consist of local artists installing sculpture at 15-minute intervals for five days except that the sculpture would have to be imagined by observers, as (in the tradition of Cage) nothing otherwise perceptible would be there.The continuing crisis Tex-ass Justice! Convicted murderer Charles Flores was on Texas death row for more than 16 years (until June 2 of this year) before the states highest criminal appeals court finally ruled that the execution might not be justified if the most important evidence was provided by a witness whom the police had hypnotized. The trial judge, and the jury, had accepted that hypnosis could lead to recovered memory (a popular hypothesis in the 1980s and 1990s, but largely discredited today). There was no physical evidence against, and the trial court was ordered to rethink the validity of hypnosis. (Government) crime scene: The Massachusetts attorney general disclosed in May that state crime-lab chemist Sonja Farak (who was fired in 2013) worked high on drugs every day in the lab in Amherst, beginning around 2005. Among her preferred refreshments: meth, ketamine, ecstasy and LSD. (Farak worked at a different Massachusetts crime lab than Annie Dookhan, imprisoned in 2013 for improvising damaging lab results on at least 20,000 convicts.) Wait, what? Robert Williams, 38, was arrested on June 1 in Calhan, Colo., after challenging his daughter to a duel with handguns. Williams had pointed a gun at his daughter, then demanded that she grab one, too. The daughters age was not reported, but police said she and Williams both got off shots (that missed). Erick Pork Chop Cox, 32, in an angry construction-site clash in DeBary, in June, used his front-end loader to dump two heaps of dirt onto his boss, Perry Byrd, 57., burying him up to his waist. Cox said Byrd had taken the first swing and that he had only accidentally engaged the loader when trying to turn it off, but Byrd claimed that Cox was laughing during the episode. Cox was arrested.Least competent criminalsSuspected drug possessor Darius Dabney finally confessed after a protracted confrontation with the judge in a Cincinnati courtroom in May a showdown initiated when the judge noticed an overwhelming smell of marijuana accompanying Dabney as he entered the room. Upon extensive questioning (according to a transcript provided by WXIX-TV), Dabney swore that he had no drugs though the penalty for lying would be immediate jailing, but producing the drugs voluntarily would result only in their being confiscated, without charges. One more chance, the exhausted, super-patient judge implored, just to be sure. Dabney then sheepishly pulled out a bag of marijuana. Finally, you come clean, said the judge. Are you sure (now)? Dabney then pulled out another bag. Oh, my lord, said the judge, who still kept his word and only found Dabney in contempt for coming to court high.

A14 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 23-29, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY What a difference a year can make. Last year, Universal Pictures was the talk of the town as it broke box office records with strong performances from Furious 7, Jurassic World and others. This year, Disney is laughing at the pathetic records Universal was proud of. Including a portion of Star Wars: The Force Awakens tally, the 2016 Walt Disney Studios output of Zootopia, The Jungle Book and Captain America: Civil War earned more than $1 billion at the domestic box office in 128 days, shattering the record Universal set last year by 37 days! Disney probably doesnt even care that Alice Through the Looking Glass is a flop, given that it also has (Finding Nemo sequel) Finding Dory in theaters now, Steven Spielbergs The BFG coming next week and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story coming in December. Can anyone give Disney a run for its money? Heres whats opening the rest of the summer its a nice mix of high profile blockbusters and smaller films that may deserve a look.June 24Independence Day: Resurgence Jeff Goldblum and Will Smith saved the world in Independence Day (1996) using the immense technological sophistication of a Macintosh laptop. Smith isnt in the sequel, and now the aliens have their own gravity as they dump cities on top of cities, but rumor has it this time the aliens are defeated by a mobile app that plays Bill Pullmans awesome speech from the first movie on repeat. Free State of Jones Matthew McConaughey plays a Mississippi farmer who leads a rebellion against the Confederacy during the Civil War. Apparently saying all right all right all right already with the slavery isnt enough.June 29The Shallows The bad news is Blake Lively is trapped on a rock 200 yards from shore with a hungry great white shark circling her. The good news is we get to see Blake Lively in a bikini for 90 minutes.July 1The BFG Steven Spielberg is in E.T. territory with this story of a Big Friendly Giant who protects a girl from other giants. Then it turns out the giant is a Big Pathetic Loser and the girl has to protect him. The Purge: Election Year Frank Grillo returns as a former police sergeant protecting an aspiring presidential candidate (Elizabeth Mitchell). It will also allow you to fantasize about purging the current political candidate of your choice from our real upcoming election. The Legend of Tarzan Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgards abs) is sent back home to the jungle to stop a snarling Christoph Waltz from doing bad things, like hurting Jane (Margot Robbie). July 8The Secret Life of Pets Think Toy Story, only with your pets. Oh, the things theyve seen! Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates Aubrey Plaza and Anna Kendrick play bad girls pretending to be good girls while accompanying bad boys Mike (Adam DeVine) and Dave (Zac Efron), whore pretending to be good boys, to their sisters wedding. This could be the must-see crass comedy of the summer.July 13The Infiltrator Bryan Cranston is the anti-Heisenberg as an undercover narcotics agent who attempts to take down Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. Based on a true story. July 15Ghostbusters The trailers are awful, leading many to dread this all-female reboot. But remember: Director Paul Feig also made Spy, The Heat and Bridesmaids, and there are some damn funny women in this cast (Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig). Keep an open mind here.July 22Star Trek: Beyond Based on the trailers it looks like just another action pic, which is a downgrade from the phenomenal efforts of J.J. Abrams with the last two movies. Heres hoping director Justin Lin (Fast & Furious 6) will steer the ship right. Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie Because someone somewhere thinks a British TV show will be a huge hit on the big screen in the States. Good luck with that. July 29Jason Bourne Matt Damon is back, Jeremy Renner is not, and Oscar winner Alicia Vikander is the female lead. Bourne now remembers his past and goes in search of more details. Expect a lot of quick cuts and solid action. Bad Moms Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn play fed up mothers who decide to buck the establishment and stop trying to be perfect. Its about time moms caught a break, and this comedy was directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, who wrote The Hangover, so be excited. Aug. 5Suicide Squad Warner Bros. cant get Batman and Superman right, but it can still connect with the iconic villains of the DC Comics universe who are on display here. Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto as the Joker lead the way. Nine Lives Kevin Spacey is a high-powered businessman trapped inside a cat who can only speak with Christopher Walken. Somehow, Walken speaking to a cat sounds about right. The FounderBusinessman Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton) seizes control of McDonalds restaurants from the two brothers (Nick Offerman and John Carroll Lynch) who founded them. So its Kroc you should blame for those ten extra pounds you just cant shake. Aug. 12Caf Society Woody Allens latest follows Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart and Steve Carell as Allen-esque things happen in 1930s Hollywood. Petes Dragon Boy befriends a gentle dragon in this remake of the 1977 Disney classic. So its like The BFG, but with a dragon? Florence Foster Jenkins Meryl Streep sings poorly (intentionally) in this story of a 1940s socialite who keeps insisting herself upon the New York City opera scene. Sounds funny, in a sad way.Aug. 19Ben-Hur CGI-filled remake of the 11 -time 1959 Oscar winner features Jack Huston as the titular prince who vows revenge on his adopted brother (Toby Kebbell). Hey, if Gods of Egypt can find success, Ben-Hur surely can too. Southside With You The story of the first date of Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson, or what Republicans call the beginning of the end of the world as we know it.

Southwest Florida offers two minorleague baseball teams that play night home games into September. You likely dont know the names of any of their players yet, but some of the young men on the Fort Myers Miracle and Charlotte Stone Crabs will no doubt make the big leagues someday. See them now for at minor-league prices at CenturyLink Sports Complex in Fort Myers and the Charlotte Sports Park. The Class A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins in the Florida State League, The Miracle promotion schedule includes fireworks on July 3. The final home game is Sunday, Sept. 4. Farther north in Charlotte County, the Charlotte Stone Crabs, the Class A affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays, play home games at Charlotte Sports Park. On July 23, they celebrate Christmas in July with post-game fireworks. And Aug. 6 they have a backto-school giveaway and teacher appreciation night. The teams final home game is Thursday, Sept. 1. Heres another fun spectator event to keep in mind for the serious dog days of September: The Pro Watercross Tour, a series of personal watercraft races and competitions that take place around the country, culminates with the 2016 Pro Watercross World Championship making a big splash at Sugden Regional Park Sept. 20-25. For those who cant watch the wave action in person, the championship will be filmed by CBS Sports Spectacular for airing sometime in October (exact dates and times TBA). Summer in Southwest Florida isnt a time for just watching sports. There are all kinds of recreational activities you can do under the sun (remember a hat and sunscreen, and drink lots of water while youre out there), many at lower rates than youll pay for rentals (think kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding) or courts (tennis, racquetball or pickleball) or course and cart fees (golf). Better still: A walk or run on a beach is always free, as is taking a swim in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico and pedaling your bike through a shady neighborhood or along a winding bike path. Theres also a good chance that you can get in on a game of hoops if you drop by just bout any community park. But itll be hot. After all, its summer.

We asked bartenders and restaurateurs to share their favorite recipes. The offerings are by turns as colorful as a sunset or pale as fog; aromatic, fruity, bracing, spicy and sometimes all those things at once. They range from venerable classics to classics in the making. Enjoy, and have a great summer. White Sangria Shulas Steak House, Naples 1 ounce Cruzan Mango rum ounce fresh orange juice 3 1-inch cubes of pineapple 1 and ounce Prosecco In a mixing glass, add orange juice and pineapple. Muddle for three to five seconds. Add remaining rum. Add ice and pour into tin/shaker. Shake vigorously for eight seconds. Add Prosecco and shake two times. Strain and pour into chilled martini glass. Garnish with cherry in the bottom of the glass.East Parkway Nevermind Awesome Bar & Eatery, Cape Coral 2 ounces Hendricks gin ounce simple syrup ounce Roses lime juice 4 mint leaves 4 thin slices cucumber In a shaker, muddle cucumber, mint, simple syrup and Roses lime juice. Once muddled, add Hendricks gin and ice. Shake vigorously then strain over a 2-inch ice cube. Garnish with mint leaf and cucumber. Notes: The East Parkway is named for Neverminds street address on Cape Coral Parkway East. Its a take on a cocktail I had while in NYC visiting a couple of years ago, texted bartender Brittany Bowman. Its definitely one of our most popular cocktails. The Barron Trabue Restaurant, Punta Gorda 2 ounces Old Forester bourbon Iced tea Ginger beer Pack a Mason jar with ice. Add your favorite bourbon and fill three quarters up with iced tea. Stir. Top off with ginger beer, garnish with a lemon wedge.Watermelon Jalapeo Margarita Sweet Melissas Caf, Sanibel Island 3 ounces jalapeo-infused tequila ounce Hpnotiq liqueur ounce lime juice ounce sour mix 3 ounces watermelon juice In a shaker, add ice, the tequila, and splashes of Hpnotiq passion fruit liqueur, lime juice and sour mix. Fill it up with watermelon juice. Shake it. Strain the liquid into an ice-filled pint glass, or straight up into a martini glass, with a cilantro-lime crusted rim. Garnish with a slice of lime and a watermelon cube. Notes: For the rim, grind up a mixture of cilantro, lime zest, sugar and salt. Dip the rim in liquid such as sour mix or rub with lime juice and then dip it into the mixture. To infuse tequila, char a jalapeo on an open flame, peel and remove the seeds. Let the jalapeo sit in a bottle of tequila overnight or longer to taste. To make watermelon juice, puree watermelon and strain through a finemesh strainer. Mint Julep The 86 Room, Fort Myers 3 ounces of bourbon 4 mint leaves plus an extra sprig or two of mint (four to six leaves) for the garnish 1 sugar cube Water In a glass or shaker, muddle four mint leaves and a sugar cube with a splash of water and two-thirds of the bourbon. Strain out the mint leaves, pouring the liquid into a mint julep cup. Add some ice, a splash of water and the rest of the bourbon to the cup. Pack it to the top with ice and garnish with a generous sprig or two of mint next to a short straw. Notes: The mint julep is famously the official drink of the Kentucky Derby and was also featured in a sweltering summer party gone awry in The Great Gatsby. Some prefer to leave the mint leaves in instead of straining them out, and use a second sugar cube to make this strong drink a bit sweeter. It can also be served in a highball or rocks glass.
A20 WEEK OF JUNE 23-29, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY Two words we cant hear enough.1126 SE 12TH COURT CAPE CORAL, FL 33990 239-567-1678www.siestapebble.comSOUTHWEST FLORIDAS POOL RENOVATION SPECIALIST!CPC1456932 Nice Boom Jam out with this ultimate summer pool party playlist BY ALAN SCULLEYFlorida Weekly CorrespondentWith summer and its warm sunny days with us once again, its prime time for pool and beach parties. And any self-respecting event such as this needs a soundtrack. Fortunately, summer fun has long been a favorite topic for songwriters. So in that spirit, here is a playlist that has some all-time great summer hits, mixed in with a few newer favorites and a wild card or two. The 20 songs are sequenced for musical flow, not as a ranking. So grab your iPod (or whatever device) and download away.Boys Of Summer Don Henley This wistful hit from Eagle Mr. Henley is a great way to ease into this summer mix tape. Even if the production now sounds dated, this was a great song. The Weather Is Here, Wish You Were Beautiful Jimmy Buffet Sure, Margaritaville or Cheeseburger In Paradise would also be good choices, but this peppier and clever tune gets my vote. Island in the Sun Weezer Bip-bip...these masters of pop melody turned out a relaxing treat of a tune with just enough guitar edge to keep things rocking. Wipe Out The Surfaris Its time to pick up the tempo here, and sorry, Beach Boys, but no song says surf and summer better than this s classic. Rock Lobster The B-52s One of the great party bands in rock history, Rock Lobster captures all the kitsch and catchiness that made the Bs so cool. This Summer Superchunk One of the breezier gems from this underappreciated band puts some great riffy guitar rock into any pool party. King of the Beach Wavves Time for a little punky fun, with a song with some cool blasts of guitar, a rolling tide of a beat and a title that serves as a fun, shout-along chorus. California Gurls Katy Perry featuring Snoop Dogg Time for a left turn, and this bouncy track from the queen of sugary pop does the job here. Vacation The Go-Gos Whats more summer than a getaway from the daily grind? The Go-Gos captured the feeling of escapism perfectly with this new-wave gem. Pulling Mussels (From The Shell) Squeeze One of the most irresistible tunes from arguably the best Brit-pop band since the Beatles may have a decidedly British accent, but mussels and shells are so Florida. California Girls The Beach Boys Time to ease things up a bit with one of the best summer songs from a group whose catalog is packed with summer sweetness. Summer In The City The Lovin Spoonful John Sebastian and company nailed the feeling of heat, blacktop and concrete here, and made it sound like there was no better place to be. Hot Fun in the Summertime Sly & the Family Stone More laid back than much of the trailblazing groups catalog, Hot Fun is a de nitive chilledand-blissed-out soundtrack for a warm sunny day. Walking On Sunshine Katrina and the Waves Big, bouncy and as euphoric as a pop song can get, it was a smash hit for a band that had many more winning tunes where this one came from. Surf City Jan & Dean The Beach Boys may have been the s king of California summery pop, but Jan Berry and Dean Torrence shine just as brightly on this classic. The Only Place Best Coast If this song had been a hit for these beachy modern rockers, it would be a xture on summer playlists for years to come. Blister in the Sun Violent Femmes OK, so maybe the title isnt that sunny, but the song at-out rocks with the kind of teen angst only Gordon Gano could convey. Summertime Blues Eddie Cochran Im choosing the original from this great s rocker over the Whos more bombastic, but also great, version. But either version works here. Dancing in the Street Martha and the Vandellas This great, grooving track remains one of best songs in the rich Motown catalog. Enough said. Rockaway Beach The Ramones As much as the punk greats epitomized city grit, this caffeinated classic is two minutes of energy and fun and accelerated guitar riffage.Those are this writers picks. Happy listening, and have fun debating these song choices or choosing the songs youd put on your next summer music playlist. PLAYLIST BROWSE HISTOR Y

Mortgage Fixed Refinance Rate 3 09APR* BOATFrom page 1and moved quickly, taking his dad with him to see the boat. They could hardly believe what they had found: a classic, custom-built jewel quickly going into disrepair. It belonged to a woman whose husband had died less than a year after he bought it at auction in 2009 for $700,000. She just wanted to get rid of it, Mr. Przysinda said. Father and son both recognized the rare opportunity that presented itself: an irreplaceable Rybovich for the asking, well below the multimillion-dollar market prices of the renowned companys vaunted vessels. They made an offer and became the new owners. Little did they know about the seafaring structures storied past.Piece of historyThey moved the crippled craft, whose name Bull appeared in gold lettering on the teak transom, to Seminole Marine, where extensive renovations began. Teak was replaced, carpet installed, the enclosed aft galley torn apart and transformed into an open space with a bar overlooking the salon. About week into the rebuild, the father-and-son team learned a shocking fact about the Bull. Their prized Rybovich had belonged to Bernard Madoff, the convicted Ponzi schemer who orchestrated the biggest financial fraud in U.S. history, totaling $65 billion. The auction where the previous owner purchased the yacht had taken place in Fort Lauderdale under the command of the U.S. Marshals Services Southern District of Florida. Two other boats owned by Madoff and seized by the asset-forfeiture department were on the block, as well the 38-foot Sitting Bull and 23-foot Little Bull in addition to a 61-foot Viking owned by Madoffs chief financial officer and a 1999 MercedesBenz convertible driven by Mr. Madoffs wife. My dad and I kept it a secret, Mr. Przysinda said. We werent proud of it. We changed the name immediately. They reverted to the boats original name, Apava, a Hindu word meaning he who sports in the water. The moniker derives from the South Ocean Boulevard home Casa Apava, a Mediterraneanstyle stunner on a parcel of land owned by one of Palm Beachs pioneer families: Standard Oil mogul Charles Bingham and wife Mary Payne Bingham. The Binghams daughter, Frances, who married Chester Bolton, a U.S. congressman from 1929-1939, received the land in 1918 and commissioned Abram Garfield to design Casa Apava, so named because the Boltons boy, Charles, was a swimmer. The descendent, later paralyzed in an accident, commissioned master shipmaker Tommy Rybovich to create the Apava with accessibility features that included an elevator and escalator. Mr. Madoff became the boats second owner in 1979. He and his friends pleasure-cruised on the renamed Bull for 30 years prior to its seizure, and footage of it making way through the Intracoastal Waterway can be seen in documentaries about the disgraced stockbroker.Labor of loveDespite its history, my dad loved that boat, Mr. Przysinda said. They worked on the Apava together as best friends and business partners for three passionfilled years. In 2013, the patriarch died of heart failure at age 75. I almost got rid of it, Mr. Przysinda said. I didnt. I still maintained it, but I just wasnt there. I could not bear to even step foot on it for a year. His wife, Jacqueline, encouraged him to finish the labor of love. So did his daughter Olivia. They told him his father would have wanted it that way. Before his death, the elder Mr. Przysinda made a request that his ashes be taken to the Gulf Stream aboard the Apava and tossed in the current. Mr. Przysinda said his fathers wish would be granted on the June 15-18 trip to the Abaco Islands for the Bahamas Billfish Championships Treasure Cay tournament.Family above fortuneIf the Apava were to be replicated as a new-build, the job would cost more than $5 million. Despite the monetary value, the three-stateroom, two-head sportfisher stands as a stronger symbol of the family value the two men brought to the project. Their goal was to turn a token of greed into a tribute to perseverance. When I see the boat now, I dont even think of it as the Bull, Mr. Przysinda said. I wish my father could be here for this moment. He would be so proud of what we have accomplished and the hard work it took to be able to afford a boat of such beauty. The final steps in the six-year undertaking included a top-to-bottom paint job and the replacement of the original soft-top tuna tower with a hard-top half tower. Shes going to be a first-class lady, said Mr. Przysinda, a native of Rochester, N.Y., who made his money running a local restaurant and a national automated teller machine company and now is developing a line of virtual-reality glasses. Shes priceless.Meeting MadoffWhile neither of the Przysinda ever met Madoff, the daughter of the crafts designer did. In 2008, Pat Rybovich organized a professional photo shoot for owners of yachts her father had created. The so-called RyboRendezvous was featured in the collectors book she was working on to honor the companys 90th anniversary. I sent invitations to the event to everyone I could think of and was thrilled to learn that the Apava would be on display, Ms. Rybovich said. I had never heard of the Madoffs, but they were lovely and offered to help any way they could. Mr. Rybovich, who had little interest in yachting and never went out in the water in his creations, had a fascination for nautical architecture and treated each of the 79 hulls he honed as if it were a sculpture, his daughter said. But hull No. 71 stood out from the others. The Apava was one of my dads favorite boats, she said. A large framed photograph of the vessel hung above the familys dining-room credenza for Mr. Rybovich to appreciate until his death in 1972. During the RyboRendezvous event, Ms. Rybovich spent quite awhile with the Madoffs aboard the boat her father had built. Bernie talked at length about his home in Palm Beach, which was directly next door to my fathers brothers home my Uncle Johnnys, John Rybovich Jr. Things change quickly. Several months after the RyboRendezvous, I was watching the news and saw a man handcuffed and taken away, she said. It was hard to imagine that the sweet, charming owner of the Apava was accused of a $65 billion financial scheme. Mr. Madoff has served seven years of a 150-year sentence. But Apava is ready for its second five decades at sea, thanks to the love of a son for his father. ADAM BARON / FLORIDA WEEKLYOwner David Przysinda, left, and Capt. Corey Hexter on the bow of the Apava during the restoration of the 1969 Rybovich yacht.

Coupon Expires 6/30/16.Naples Bonita Springs Testosterone therapy tested in older men NIH BYLINEAs men age, they often produce less testosterone than they did in their youth. Testosterone is a chemical signal that contributes to male characteristics such as a deep voice, facial hair and muscle growth. Men with low levels of testosterone may have symptoms such as fatigue, decreased sexual desire and difficulty walking. To see if testosterone therapy might help ease such symptoms, the National Institutes of Health started the Testosterone Trials, a series of studies that are a key step before considering larger, lengthier trials to assess longterm risks and benefits. Results are in from three of the trials. These focused on men with low testosterone levels who had either low sexual function, difficulty walking or low vitality (fatigue and low energy). Researchers enrolled 790 men, ages 65 and up, at 12 sites nationwide. The men received a gel, either with or without testosterone, to apply to their skin every day for a year. For men who had low sexual function, the testosterone therapy increased sexual desire and function. But for the men in the other two trials, the treatment didnt improve walking ability or vitality. When the researchers combined data from all three of the trials, walking speed and distance did seem to improve with testosterone. The therapy also had some benefit for mood, energy and depressive symptoms among men in all three trials combined. The findings suggest that testosterone treatment of older men who have very low testosterone levels may have some benefit. However, decisions about testosterone treatment for these men will also depend on the results of the other four trials, says head researcher Dr. Peter J. Snyder at the University of Penn sylv ania School of Medicine. Older men who are considering testosterone therapy should discuss potential benefits and drawbacks with a health care provider. The Testosterone Trials are funded by NIHs National Institute on Aging, its National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, its National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, as well as by AbbVie Pharmaceuticals. HEALTHY LIVINGLong work hours linked to cancer, heart disease in women SPECIAL TO FLORIDA WEEKLYWomen who work long hours may have increased risk for a range of health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes and cancer, according to new research. The amount of time people work has been shown to have an effect on health, and a recent study by researchers at Ohio State University suggests the effects of 50or 60-hour work weeks has a significantly worse effect on women than men over the course of several decades. Previous research shows long hours and shift work can adversely affect health. While the new study is focused on early onset of disease and conditions, the distinction that women are at greater risk for developing health problems because of work is new and may be made worse by the overall expectations of women beyond just their careers. People dont think that much about how their early work experiences affect them down the road Dr. Allard Dembe, a professor of health services management and policy at Ohio State University, said in a press release. Women in their 20s, 30s and 40s are setting themselves up for problems later in life. For the study, published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, researchers analyzed data on 7,492 participants in the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth who were at least 40 years old in 1998, covering 32 years of job history from 1978 to 2009. The researchers averaged self-reported work hours during the 32-year period, comparing time spent working to the incidence of heart disease, cancer, arthritis or rheumatism, diabetes or high blood sugar, chronic lung disease, depression and high blood pressure. Overall, few of the full-time workers in the study worked less than 40 hours per week, with 56 percent averaging 41 to 50 hours, 13 percent averaging 51 to 60 hours and 3 percent averaging more than 60 hours per week. Although men working long hours had higher incidence of arthritis, none of the other chronic diseases could be linked to long hours at work, however a strong link was seen in women between long work hours and heart disease, cancer, arthritis and diabetes. Pressure on women from family responsibility, including those who work long hours, was not considered as part of the study, though previous research shows it may have an effect. The researchers acknowledge that womens larger share of family responsibility and potential for work to be less satisfying because of the need to balance family and work may take a larger toll on their health. Women especially women who have to juggle multiple roles feel the effects of intensive work experiences and that can set the table for a variety of illnesses and disability, Dr. Dembe said.

PET TALES Scrub-a-dub dogThe best treatment for your itchy pet may be only skin deep BY CHRISTIE KEITHUniversal UclickWhen it comes to treating itchy skin and allergic skin disease in dogs, are some approaches all wet? Itchy skin can drive dogs crazy. The sound of a dog slurping, chewing and scratching doesnt do much for his owner, either. The quest for relief from these symptoms is one of the top reasons dogs are taken to the veterinarian. Many pet owners expect the vet to prescribe anti-itch medications and antibiotics, and those drugs are often necessary. But an increasing body of research and clinical experience suggests the best approach to treating canine allergic skin disease and chronic infection is from the outside in. Chronic allergic skin disease in dogs is known as atopic dermatitis, or AD. Dogs with this condition have a defect in their skins barrier, which allows substances like bacteria, yeast and pollens to leak into the deeper layers of the skin. Because the body perceives them as invaders, the immune system revs itself up to destroy them, bringing local inflammation to the area as part of the immune response. That inflammation causes itching, redness and irritation, and dogs react to the discomfort by chewing and scratching their skin. That further damages the skins barrier, allowing more bacteria and yeast to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, triggering more irritation, itching and inflammation. As if that wasnt bad enough, dogs can become allergic to the bacteria and yeast, setting off a cascade of itching and infection that leaves the dog hairless and in pain. Worst of all, the antibiotics that have long been an integral part of treating skin infections are losing the battle with drugresistant bacteria, particularly against the strains of staph commonly associated with canine AD. So whats a dog owner to do with her itchy pet? The new finding here is the effectiveness of topical therapy, said board-certified veterinary dermatologist Dr. Douglas J. DeBoer of the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine in the proceedings of the 2016 NAVC Conference in Orlando, Florida. Although were used to thinking of topical products as adjunct treatments used in addition to antibiotics, that thinking has changed, and dermatologists are now advocating that topicals be used instead of antibiotics wherever possible. Not only do topical products kill even drug-resistant bacteria, he said, but reducing antibiotic use can protect human health by reducing the development of even more resistant bacteria. Topical treatments also address the skin barrier defect that human medical research suggests is the primary cause of AD. Historically, AD was viewed as a disease that began on the inside of the individual the immune system, DeBoer said. More recently, this inside-outside view has come into some question, and a different view is evolving. That different view includes something that might surprise dog owners: weekly or even daily baths and topical leave-ons that are designed to repair the skins barrier defect. One obstacle to this simple therapy is that many pet owners believe frequent bathing will dry out a dogs skin, thus making his itching worse. Thats a widespread misconception, and I wish it wasnt still out there, said boardcertified veterinary dermatologist Dr. John Plant. We know that bathing removes allergens and infectious agents like bacteria and yeast, and helps restore epidermal function in humans. Can it do the same in dogs? Its a bit unclear, but Ive observed it helps a lot with my atopic patients. Some can even be controlled that way alone. Of course, theres still a place for oral medications in the treatment of canine skin disease, but when it comes to AD, suds, not drugs, may be just what the doctor ordered.

On the other hand, if you dont hang on every word of my weekly missive, youre probably thinking, Yeah, right. First world problems. Whatever. I get it. But still, when I grabbed my pristine new passport and headed off to Miami recently for my maiden voyage with my husband (and 4,000-plus other hearty souls) in foreign waters (I do consider Central America and the Caribbean coast of Mexico foreign), it was a huge step for me. Up until then, the farthest Id traveled was as an 8-year-old when my Detroit uncle drove my cousins and me over a bridge to Canada and back again (without getting out of the car). There, he told us. Now you can say youve been to a foreign country. Anyway, now that Im a world cruiser, I have a LOT to say on the subject and am officially an expert. OK, not really but seven days at sea with an unlimited food and beverage package did teach me a great deal about myself. For instance: I love to be plugged in. When most people go on vacation, they shut down their smartphones, rejoice in the lack of WiFi in remote lands and post things on Facebook to the effect of: I LOVE being unplugged! Not me. Im just the opposite. Let me plug in, please. Give me news, weather, social media and texting. Without WiFi, Im adrift. Occasionally while on our cruise, I was able to tap into the Interwebs when our ship was in port, but it was painfully slow and quickly drained my iPhone battery, so posting a photo on Instagram of the cute towel elephant that our ship steward made us was hardly worth the trouble. I need to develop a taste for bottled beer before I go to another third world country. I hate beer, but I learned that when Im at a rustic little beach bar in Honduras, I have to be careful about ordering a frozen margarita especially if the bartender is pouring from a plastic pitcher with the letters TQLA scrawled on the side. Whether it was the mystery ingredients or the Honduran ice, the only good news is that I lost four pounds the next day. I wont share the details of how (only that it wasnt pretty). I also learned that Ill need thicker skin if I ever decide to leave the relative safety of the port area in Belize again. The morning our ship was in that gorgeous Central American country known for its fabulous scuba diving spots, Todd woke up with a sore throat. Since hes never sick, I was certain he had the cruise ship disease, Norovirus, and that all 4,000 passengers on our vessel, especially me, were doomed. I bravely decided to journey ashore by myself to buy Todd a $12 Central American Z-pack, an antibiotic that you need a prescription for in the United States. After procuring this life-saving medicine for ailing husband, I decided it would be super fun to venture outside the port to discover some of the history and beauty of downtown Belize City. I quickly learned that when youre a blonde lady tooling down the sidewalk by yourself in a Target muumuu, taking photos on your cell phone, the folks who live there will swarm you with overwhelmingly loud offers for rides, hair braids and, oh, so much more. My adventure didnt last long before I went scurrying back to the ship, where I was never happier to see Rodolfo, our favorite bartender on the Lido deck. Another lesson learned: I am incredibly lazy. I had no idea how lazy, though, until we returned home from our fabulous vacation and I realized that not only would I have to start making my own bed (without waking up to cute towel animals), I would have to cook my own dinner and start drinking wine in a box again because Rodolfo wasnt around to whip me up a pina colada at 11 in the morning (I also learned that 11 a.m. is not considered cocktail hour in the real world). We had tons of wonderful adventures and made some great memories during our week at sea. On our last night, when I slipped out to our tiny balcony and saw more stars in the sky than Ive ever seen in my whole life, I was reminded how incredibly lucky I am to call Southwest Florida home. We have stunning sunsets, beautiful beaches and, most importantly, really good ice. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

B4 BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 23-29, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYneed to spend some time at the bottom. Among the lessons the summer will provide the younger generation: Theyll start to learn if the family business is the right fit. The children can begin to gauge how interested they might be in the business, and the parents can begin to evaluate whether their offspring are cut out for it. Often, families carry the expectation that the next generation will take over, but thats not always the best scenario. Sometimes both the business and the child will be better off if the child chooses another career. Theyll develop a deeper understanding of the business. If they do eventually inherit the business, they will perform much better in their leadership role if they have been exposed to all aspects of the job. Summer break is a good time to initiate them without making it a sink-or-swim endeavor. Many family business owners go astray by giving their kids more responsibility than they should have or by shielding them from hard work, Mr. Hutcheson says. You want to avoid setting them up for failure, but you also dont want to encourage a sense of entitlement. Theyll profit from other viewpoints. Parents shouldnt assume that only they can judge how well the son or daughter is doing during this summer exploration. Find employees who can give you honest opinions on how well your children are working out, Mr. Hutcheson advises Your children likely act differently around you than around others, so a third-party assessment can help in evaluating their strengths and weaknesses. Theyll learn the value of hard work. Perhaps most important among the lessons the next generation can learn from a summer in the trenches at the family business is the same one all teenagers and young adults learn when they take a summer job: the value of hard work. Its easy sometimes to create a comfortable ride for children, Mr. Hutcheson says. But the most valuable dollar theyll ever get is the one they earn on their own. More than 70 percent of all businesses in the United States are family businesses, generating more than half of the U.S. Gross National Product. However, two out of three do not survive to the next generation, and with 500,000 new businesses starting each month in this country, family businesses are replaced at a rapid rate. Mr. Hutcheson also cautions that the period after graduation from college is a scary phase of life, but jumping into the family business right away is not the best move for a young person fresh out of school. Children have an urge to distinguish themselves from their parents, and working for another company is a great way to do so, he says. Let them spread their wings, learn new things and appreciate small victories outside of the business. If and when they choose to work for the family business, theyll feel better about the decision. A mentoring relationship toward the next generation is also extremely helpful, Mr. Hutcheson says, adding it can provide a realistic but loving perspective.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 23-29, 2016 BUSINESS B5Part 3: Good profits versus bad profits in the context of loyalty management BY FRANK FRIENDSpecial to Florida WeeklySurely all profits are good, right? No, they are not. Bad profits result from company actions that increase short-term profits at the expense of long-term growth. Bad profits occur when a company tries to increase profits by taking away from customers. Tricks such as lowering quality standards, skimping on customer service, encouraging aggressive sales practices and adding hidden charges inevitably result in disgruntled customers. They become detractors that will bad mouth the company. Until recently an unhappy customer a detractor would complain to a few friends. But now, thanks to Facebook et al., hundreds even thousands learn about the bad comments. Complicating the problem is a recent Harvard Business Review article (among others) stating that it takes five to six positive comments to overcome a single negative one. Detractors have a much higher churn rate than other customers. They are difficult and expensive to deal with. And they do not refer others to the company. Good profits are different. While bad profits are earned at the expense of customers, good profits are earned by building loyal relationships with customers. Loyal customers promoters are retained much longer than the average customer and typically are responsible for about 80 percent of referrals received by the company. Detractors stifle growth. Promoters promote it. Understanding the difference between bad profits and good profits is fundamental and is one reason why some small companies stay small and others prosper. Income statements do not differentiate between good and bad profits, so unless you survey your customers you cant know how big a problem, if any, your detractors might be. A simple way to find out is to conduct a Net Promoter Score survey as discussed in previous articles (June 9 and 16). The intentional or inadvertent actions to take away from customers for shortterm gain is not the only reason why customers become detractors; there are two other indirect issues that add to the problem. The first is when procedures make it difficult for customers to do business with the company because it just requires too much effort. For instance, multiple calls and transfers between people, difficulty in reaching a decisionmaker, slow responses and trying to understand overseas support staff. The gold standard for customer service is first contact resolution solving the problem on the first contact with the customer. The second, and a key factor in all discussions of customer loyalty, is employee loyalty. Every employee can influence a customers opinion of the company, not just the employees who actually come face-to-face with customers. Small things such as poor packaging and incorrect invoices can certainly do this. Customer loyalty gets the most attention, but companies with unengaged, unhappy unloyal employees will have few loyal customers. You cant solve a problem if you dont know there is a problem. Knowing your customers, listening to them and acting on their legitimate concerns is the only way to discover if you have detractor problems and learn how to resolve them. 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. Previous columns about loyalty management appeared in this space on June 9 and 16 and are available in our archive at floridaweekly. com/naples. Future columns will appear as space permits. MONEY & INVESTINGHow to profit from the changing worlds of retailI dont know about you, but I find it absolutely amazing that I can go into any of the half dozen grocery stores around town and find an absolutely dizzying assortment of produce to choose from: a dozen types of peppers, 10 types of potatoes, four kinds of pears. The bounty all stems from fantastic productivity gains in farming in the past 50 years. For example, in 1960 a hectare of land could produce around 750 kg of wheat. Today, that same amount of land can produce more than 2,500 kg. This has not only enabled farmers to produce more produce, but it has freed up millions of acres to be used for other purposes. In 2016, the internet is producing massive productivity gains across a myriad of industries. Retail is one sector in particular thats feeling the effect in a dramatic fashion. As more and more commerce is being done online, there is less need for traditional retail stores. This has completely transformed the industry, with companies like American Apparel, Radioshack and Circuit City going bankrupt while Amazon, Walmart and other giants just keep growing in their place. Beyond the obvious options of buying Amazon or shorting traditional retail stores, what can investors do to profit off this trend? The answer, surprisingly, might be found in the real estate sector. With so many retail stores shutting their doors, malls across the country are starting to feel the pain. Just this month, General Growth Properties, the second largest U.S. mall owner, defaulted its loan financing Detroits Lakeside Mall. Another mall owner, WP Glimcher, just announced plans to transfer ownership of five of its malls to its lenders. An additional $47 billion of similar mall loans are due over the next 18 months, and many people believe many of these will not be repaid.I think whats starting to happen to shopping malls is eerily reminiscent of what happened in the residential housing market in 2008. We had an overbuilding situation where people used cheap debt to buy properties they couldnt support. And just like when the housing market crashed, owners are just turning over their keys to the banks and walking away.Compare this sub-sector of the real estate market to the industrial sector. Industrial real estate companies own things like warehouses, factory spaces and distribution centers. These types of properties are flourishing as the e-commerce sector grows. Low energy costs are making the manufacturing and shipping of goods even cheaper, giving a further boost to these types of properties. For an average investor, using a Real Estate Investment Trust is a good way to play these trends. REITs own real estate and are traded just like corporations. You can buy REITs that specialize in everything from hotels to medical office centers to malls. They typically pay very high dividends because they are legally obligated to pay a large percentage of their income to investors. So my idea for profiting off this divergence within the REIT sector is to go with long industrial REITs and/or to go short with shopping mall REITs. You can do this using Exchange Traded Funds, as there are such funds with both long and short REITs. I think this can be a long-term position, as I dont see any of the trends Ive just discussed reversing anytime soon. Plus, youll receive a nice dividend in the meantime. I guess you just wont be spending it at the local mall.

B6 BUSINESS WEEK OF JUNE 23-29, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY I trace my roots back to 1965, when a Yale undergrads term paper outlined a system to make rapid deliveries. (He got an average grade on it.) I was founded in Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1971, and in 1973, my first night of continuous operation featured 389 employees and 14 jets delivering 186 packages overnight to 25 cities. Today Im a delivery giant, employing nearly 400,000 people and raking in close to $50 billion annually. My fleet includes 650-plus aircraft and more than 100,000 ground vehicles. I handle more than 11 million shipments per business day, on average. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Health insurance, disability insurance, renters insurance, umbrella insurance and/or long-term care insurance can also be worthwhile. Not all insurance is necessary, though. Here are some kinds of policies most people dont need: Mortgage life insurance. Its cheaper to use term life insurance to pay off your mortgage debt, should you perish. Credit card loss prevention insurance. By law, your losses due to card theft are capped at $50 per card, so be wary of this. Disease-specific insurance. Regular health insurance plans often cover medical expenses related to most diseases. Extended warranties. For nonexpensive items, theyre generally not worth it. Accidental death insurance or flight insurance. Youre extremely unlikely to die in an accident or in a plane crash, so term life insurance makes more sense. Pet insurance. This often costs more overall than it will pay. Rental-car damage insurance. This is often covered by the policy covering your own car. Identity-theft insurance. Federal protections can leave you paying little to nothing if your identity is stolen, so this insurance is often needless. Involuntary-unemployment insurance. This promises to make minimum payments on your credit card or auto loan debt should you become unemployed. Instead, you might maintain an emergency fund that can cover your living expenses for three to six months or more. Cellphone insurance. These policies are often not worth what they cost you after a year or two of payments. Even life insurance can be unnecessary for some people. If youre single and childless (or youre a child), for example, and no one depends on your income, skipping it may be best. Life insurance is meant to protect critical income streams.

Catching a Falling KnifeIn 2007, I received a hot tip flier in the mail about an internet company that provided games and learning activities for mothers to use with young children. I purchased about 50 shares for around $30 apiece. After the stock dropped to $15 per share, I doubled down in order to lower my cost basis. When shares fell to around $6, I again bought more. After many more such purchases, I had lowered my cost basis to just a dime per share! I had spent a lot of money on commissions by this time, of course. I owned 44,958 shares at a cost of $4,654! The stock was trading at around $0.0002 per share then. If it went up to just $0.02, I would see a couple hundred dollars profit in my account but there was no way that I could sell 44,000-plus shares. Mercifully, the stock finally dropped to $0, and I stopped buying shares. Its still in my portfolio, as a reminder to buy falling stocks only if I think theyre a better value, not to lower my cost basis. R.G., Nantucket, MassachusettsThe Fool Responds: You learned a tough lesson. Many times, stocks plunge for good reason and permanently. Once it was in penny-stock territory, that should have been another red flag. Focus on a stocks intrinsic value and growth prospects, not on your purchase price. A Fat Tech DividendNetworking giant Cisco Systems (NASDAQ: CSCO) is a stable and mature tech company, but it has been suffering from weak demand for its switches and routers that keep information flowing through the internet. That has put downward pressure on sales growth and on its stock price, offering investors an attractive opportunity. Ciscos future is promising, as its making steady progress in its transition away from switching and routing and toward a business more focused on software and subscription services. This should drive accelerating growth and profitability, and profit margins have already been rising.Cisco is also building its Internet of Things offerings, using its networking and switches technology to improve connected servers in manufacturing, utilities, oil and gas, transportation and smart cities.The company sports far more cash and cash equivalents than debt, and its generating more than $12 billion annually in free cash flow. This enables it to ride the ups and downs of the economic cycle without peril.Cisco started paying dividends in 2011, and it has increased payments every year since then. This includes a generous 24 percent hike in 2016, leaving the stock with a dividend that recently yielded 3.6 percent.With dominant market share in an infrastructure-oriented business, a rocksolid financial position and a reasonable valuation, Cisco Systems has a lot to offer investors. (The Motley Fool has recommended Cisco Systems.) 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? (Answer: Schlumberger) Naked InvestingQWhat are naked calls? H.W., Saginaw, MichiganATheyre an options-investing strategy. Remember that there are two main kinds of options: calls and puts. Buying a call gives you the right to buy a set number of shares, at a set strike price, within a certain period of time (often just a few months). Puts give you the right to sell shares. You sell (or write) naked calls when you dont own the underlying stock. Its risky because if the stock soars, you may have to buy it at the new, high price, to deliver it to whoever bought the call you sold. You can potentially lose a lot. Of course, if the stock doesnt pass the strike price before the option expires, you pocket the price of the option. Thats the appeal of this strategy. You can be more conservative with a covered-call strategy, where you sell a call only if you own the underlying stock and are willing to part with it, if need be. You dont lose any money this way, but if you end up having to hand over your shares, you do lose profits you might have made if youd kept the stock. Many options strategies are risky, and you can do quite well investing in stocks without ever going near options. ***QWhere can I find the quarterly and annual earnings reports companies file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)? C.S., St. Augustine, FloridaAYou can get them from the SEC itself, at sec.gov/edgar.shtml. You can also call the companys investor relations department and ask for its latest filings or poke around the companys website or many major financial websites. Want more information about stocks?

Summertime, and the numbers from NABOR are sunny NAPLES AREA BOARD OF REALTORSAs predicted by the areas leading broker analysts, activity in the real estate market for the month of May continued to follow a self-correcting path with areas of impressive growth and opportunity. Buyers and sellers alike will find the newest numbers from the Naples Area Board of Realtors encouraging. NABOR tracks home listings and sales within Collier County (excluding Marco Island). Mays pending and closed sales activity continued on a trajectory of improvement, with 6 percent and 5 percent decreases, respectively, as compared month to month over last years very strong results. Median closed prices in May continued on the same trend seen in recent months, and remain steady in all price segments above $300,000 (12 months ending May 2016). The median closed price was $338,000 in May 2016 compared to $332,00 in May 2015. The properties selling now are homes by owners who have priced their properties realistically, says Brenda Fioretti, managing broker at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty. There is good news for buyers who previously found it difficult to find a home they could afford in this market. Several broker analysts remarked that median closed prices earlier this year were reflective of sellers testing the ceiling. But Mays 37 percent climb in inventory coupled with steady prices in most price segments indicates a stable and inviting market environment going into summer. f R i a g a c d t h 3 w $ a d e REAL ESTATENAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYA GUIDE TO THE REAL ESTATE MARKET WEEK OF JUNE 23-29, 2016 B11 SEE NABOR, B16 House Hunting:25120 Goldcrest Drive, #322 Pelican Landing, Bonita Springs

NABORFrom page 11The May market report showed condominium inventory increased in every corner of Naples. In fact, there was a huge surge in May listings for condominiums in both the Naples beach and North Naples areas. There were 5,207 homes on the market for sale in May 2016 compared to 3,800 in May 2015. The increase in inventory tells me that our market is very attractive, says Jeff Jones, managing broker at the Naples-Park Shore office of Coldwell Banker. Its encouraging for homebuyers looking in the below $300,000 market that inventory was up 29 percent in that segment (to 1,391 homes in May 2016 from 1,076 homes in May 2015). The NABOR market report provides comparisons of single-family home and condominium sales (via the Southwest Florida MLS), price ranges and geographic segmentation and includes an overall market summary. Among the overall findings: Overall pending sales in the $300,000 to $500,000 price segment increased 1 percent, to 258 in May 2016 from 256 in May 2015. Overall pending sales for singlefamily homes in the East Naples geographic area (34114, 34117, 34120 and 34137 ZIP codes) increased 14 percent, to 129 in May 2016 from 113 in May 2015. Overall closed sales in the Immokalee/Ave Maria geographic area (34142) increased 26 percent, to 48 homes in the 12 months ending May 2016 from 38 homes in the 12 months ending May 2015. The median closed price for condominiums in the $2 million and above category decreased 19 percent, to $2,275,000 in May 2016 from $2,800,000 in May 2015. Inventory for single-family homes under $300,000 decreased 5 percent, to 291 homes in May 2016 from 307 homes in May 2015. Inventory for condominiums in the $1 million to $2 million category increased 92 percent, to 190 in May 2016 from 99 in May 2015. Inventory for condominiums in the Naples beach geographic area (34102, 34103, 34108) increased 71 percent, to 638 condominiums in May 2016 from 373 condominiums in May 2015. Inventory for condominiums in the North Naples geographic area (34109, 34110, 34119) increased 66 percent, to 673 condominiums in May 2016 from 406 condominiums in May 2015. Average days on market for singlefamily homes in the $1 million to $2 million category saw the largest decrease 38 percent to 81 days in May 2016 from 130 days in May 2015. The market appears to be catching its breath, says John Steinwand, broker and principal at Naples Realty Services. People are still looking for bargains in Southwest Florida, and this summer could be the time to buy, as no one really knows what will happen after the presidential election. Inventory has increased, home prices have not changed much in most of the market compared to a year ago, and banks seem to be issuing more mortgage approvals, Mr. Jones says, adding the May report showed 40 percent of sales were conventional versus 60 percent cash sales. The forecast for commercial real estate in Southwest Florida is also encouraging, according to Wes Kunkle, president and managing broker at Kunkle International Realty. Many national chains are coming to the U.S. 41 and State Road 951 corridor, he says. Overall closed home sales in the south Naples geographic area decreased the least of all areas recorded by only 1 percent to 145 homes in May 2016 from 146 homes in May 2015.

Thomas & Mercer. 386 pages. Trade paperback, $15.95; Kindle e-book $5.99. This, the second title in James Swains Billy Cunningham Series, continues to explore the exciting and often disgusting world of Las Vegas casinos. Billy knows how the resort casinos fleece their customers. The casino owners control the odds and seem to have the gaming commission in their pockets. Still a young man, Billy has already had great successes walking away from the casinos with huge piles of money. The casinos would be better off if Billy was found dead, and threats to his existence should shake his confidence. However, he doesnt know a way of life that would thrill him more. He and the members of his carefully selected and proven team operate like a family; they all play by the rules of the cheaters code. Now, after a year in the planning, Billys biggest score is in sight. Each team member knows his or her part, and there has been no shortage of rehearsals. Essentially, they put on a play that has been carefully scripted by Billy. His part is to play the whale, the extremely wealthy and seemingly addicted gambler who will drop a huge bundle at the Carnivale Casino. Though he and his team are booked at the Rio, Billy is sure a Carnivale VIP host will lure them away from the Rio by offering huge incentives. His convincing role-play will set the invitation and the benefit package in motion. Billy isnt ready yet to share his secrets with the full team, though one of them knows about the mechanics of the scam that will lessen the house odds at the roulette wheel and insure someone at the table wins when betting his lucky numbers. The secret only Billy knows is how they will get the casino to pay off. After all, an improbable lucky streak is a red flag to casino operators. Mr. Swain invents roadblocks to Billys success during the countdown to the roulette action at the Carnivale. Mobsters are after him, gaming commission authorities are in his way and he manages to get arrested after he kills someone in a confrontation. The authors sure sense of how the gaming industry works allows him to build a sequence of vivid, suspenseful action scenes with authority. Other roadblocks include a distracted member of the team who might need to be replaced, and Maggie, the woman Billy has loved but seemingly abandoned and who comes back into his life to bring him pain. (Maggie is a powerful character who could carry another Swain series.) Psychologically, all these obstacles threaten the cool-headed discipline required to make the caper work. The members of Billys team are well thought out and defined. Their dialogue rings true, with touches of doubt, nervousness and yet a stubborn loyalty. The author Swain surrounds this slice of Billys world with a larger world of scammers, players, casino employees, enforcers, independent mobster, and government officials. For all the blinking bright lights, this is a dark, decadent world, and Mr. Swain is a master at representing its allure, its thrills and its dead-end danger. The slick and sordid ambiance and the welter of authoritative detail he orchestrates are just not available anywhere else. Readers become insiders on how scams work, whats at stake and what can go wrong. All the consequent emotions pound through the pages, with unexpected turning points and an unusual moral underpinning. About the authorJames Swain is the nationally bestselling author of 17 mystery novels, several of which have been reviewed in these pages. His books have been named Publishers Weekly and Kirkus Reviews Best Mystery Books of the Year, and he has received three Barry Award nominations and a Florida Book Award for fiction. In 2006, he was awarded Frances prestigious Prix Calibre .38 for Best American Crime Writing. Born in Huntington, N.Y., he graduated from New York University and worked as a magazine editor and screenwriter before moving to the Tampa Bay area to run a successful advertising firm. When he isnt writing, he enjoys researching casino scams and cons, a subject on which hes considered an expert. 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. b b t s w i a philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com SWAIN

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 23-29, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYHes fond of saying that, If it falls from a tree, Im going to pick it up. If its there for the taking, Im going to take it. The approach, he adds, provides me with an immense amount of material. Using these natural elements, he creates assemblages and sculptures. Many are what he calls tornadoes: strands of cut horsetail rushes or discarded basket weaving scraps twisted and intertwined and hung from the ceiling. They are anywhere from 10 to 20 feet tall (one that reaches almost two stories hangs at the Marco Island Center for the Arts). Other creations hes christened whirlpools: flat spirals of mahogany seedpods in a Lucite casing, the swirling shape recalling environmental artist Robert Smithsons iconic, site-specific Spiral Jetty in Utah. These assemblages are Mr. Adlers way of transforming negative experiences into art. I was in a tornado when I was 16, he says, adding it blew through on the first day of a sleep-away camp where he was a counselor. It was crazy, he says. It came through and we had camp full of kids. No one got hurt, but there was a lot of damage. We saw the devastation. He also had a friend drown in a whirlpool when he was a child. He wasnt there when it happened, but he was familiar with the danger of whirlpools. I was a kid hanging out at the river. It was very scary, he says. As an artist over the years, he says, hes been inspired by these scary memories that arent scary anymore. Ive come to terms with it with age and experience. Theres the fear of things that are strange (when youre young.) Then you age and you have more power over yourself, and you get more experience in life and you realize that you have the power. I have power over anything. The moment of a tornado is chaos, he adds. It can be related to so many other things in life: You go round and round and get sucked under. The horsetail rushes, the first natural element he began making art with, are prehistoric, going back 415 million years, he says. Its what dinosaurs used to feed off of horsetail and ferns, he explains. Today, rushes help prevent erosion. Initially green when harvested, the ultra-light, bamboo-like reeds can grow 7 to 8 feet tall and turn various shades of tan and beige as they dry out. Things such as the amount of sun theyre exposed to, whether theyre indoors or outdoors, and moisture or the lack of in the air, also affect their color. It depends on the elements, Mr. Adler says. Some are almost blond. Its beautiful. When a breeze blows, the strands of his tornadoes rustle and click in a way that reminds him of the sound of people typing. I like things that make a noise that I find pleasing, he says. His tornadoes, he adds, make him think of the full-body Sound Suits created by Nick Cave (the artist, not the musician) that click and clack whenever the wearer moves. Mr. Adler returns to a 5-acre patch of horsetail in his native St. Louis every summer to harvest material for his assemblages. He also collects driftwood on the Missouri and Illinois banks of the Mississippi River.The man in whiteMr. Adler is a familiar figure in Naples. With his shaved head and long white beard that curls from his chin, he looks like a monk. For almost 11 years now, hes been dressing totally in white (though he does admit to owning a couple of black jackets). It simplifies his life, he says. I dont need color on me, he says. Im a canvas. Its a pure thing, its a cleansing thing. Plus, it makes getting dressed easier. Hes so used to wearing white that any alternative seems odd to him now. If you were to put a red shirt on me, Id be squirming, he says. Earlier in life he worked in fashion for a while, he says, and still religiously reads W and Vogue magazines. Im exploring European designers, minimalists, he says. My requirements in clothing have gotten more sophisticated. My old fashion world has come back into my life. I want to create my own fashion for myself. Thats the next step. I have a lot of designs I want to do. Ill be wearing them next season. Mr. Adlers artwork is also well known in Naples, where pieces sell from $3,000 to $8,000. Hes exhibited at The von Liebig Art Center and was included in the Florida Contemporary 2106 exhibition at ArtisNaples. And Gardner Colby Galleries and Judith Liegeois Designs, both in Naples, represent him. She really kicked me in the ass, he says of Ms. Liegeois. She said, Youve got real talent. Where you live, there are many walls that should have your work on them, because its different from everybody else. My work is made from natural materials. I dont know any other artists around here doing that. Were a kind of rare breed. But hes growing a national reputation, too, which is good for his career. We dont have the venues here you have in a city, he says. This is still not a city, though they call it a city. And neither is Fort Myers. Last summer he had an exhibit at Big Club Hall in St. Louis. And hes been invited to be part of the Fictitious Fiber exhibition coming up in October in Santa Fe, N.M., which hes excited about. Its all about things that appear fiber-like, he says. Though he doesnt use any fiber or cloth in his work, hes made quilts of mahogany seedpods strung together. Its like fabric, he says, because even though theyre made of wood, they hang and drape like cloth. Fiber artist Jane Sauer saw his work in St. Louis and invited him to be in the show. Youre perfect for it, she told him. I love the fact that Im being included in a fiber textile exhibition, he says. I have so many friends who are fiber artists. He also recalls that the last time he was in Sante Fe, more than a decade ago, he saw an exhibition by Andy Goldsworthy, who makes art onsite out of leaves, branches, stones and other things in nature. Mr. Goldsworthys work helped inspire Mr. Adler to create his own art with material from nature. From darkness to lightMr. Adler, who is 63, says he never thought hed make it to 50. I was so self-destructive, living in the fast lane, he says. I did a lot of drugs; I was a functioning drug addict for many years, for many reasons. Then, one day, nine or 10 years ago, he was offered a tray of beautiful cocaine at a party. And he turned it down. If youre honest with yourself, your time comes. I had to make some choices. My choice was to become the person I always wanted to be. Many of his friends he knew in his earlier days had died of AIDS. He has multiple crosses made out of horsetail and thorns above his bed to memorialize them. I survived all the madness, he says. Ive lost so many people in my life. All the people who passed, I was counting on being with me now. Im the only one to represent them. I have to keep representing. My story is not unique, he says. Its got twists and turns that are interesting. He lived in 15 different cities before landing in Naples, he says. He worked as a florist for 20-plus years, self-taught. Now, his love of nature and his skill with organic materials is expressed through his art.The wabi-sabi wayTheres almost as much nature inside Mr. Adlers home as outside. Driftwood leans against the corners of his white, minimalist trailer park home in East Naples. A line of day lily stems form a row, pinned to the wall with large thorns. Seedpods rest in three wooden bowls on a maple table in his living room. Walls, ceilings and floors are all painted white. Furniture is at a minimum. Im a very minimal person, he says. I find minimalism so attractive and comforting; I can see clearly. I dont require much. He can spend six to eight hours sitting at a table creating his art, weaving seedpods together with wire. Its a meditative thing for him. I have a monk that lives within me, he says. I would rather a pallet on the floor and live the wabi-sabi lifestyle, which is basically who I am. Wabi-sabi is my work. Wabi means spiritual, sabi means distressed, primitive. Or, as the definition hes has written on a piece of paper explains: Wabi-sabi is a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. It is a beauty of things modest and humble. It is the beauty of things unconventional. When he first read about wabi-sabi, he immediately felt akin to it, he says. I felt it described my work very well, and I took it as an interpretation of my lifestyle. In 2000, a friend gave him a book of poems by Rumi, the 13th century Persian poet. From that day on the journey started, he says. I just needed a guide. He began sanding driftwood and engraving Rumi poems into their surface. He also makes boxes and burns Rumi poems on them. If you asked me 30 years ago, How do you expect it all to turn out? boy, is this the extreme opposite of what I expected, he says. But what better thing than to be than the person you were always meant to be? I chose life, and life has been beautiful. There is life after everything. in a storefront window of a woman whos also looking over her shoulder. The moment was not staged, Mr. David wrote in his artist statement that accompanied the entry.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 23-29, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY ARTS COMMENTARYWhet your appetite with an absurd play about hunger and longing If they could only figure out how to set up a temporary restaurant or bistro in the theater, the Laboratory Theater of Florida would have a flourishing business. Thats because the current production, An Empty Plate in the Caf du Grand Boeuf, is sure to make audiences hunger for a well-cooked meal. After seeing this play, patrons would surely flock to the nearest table, their appetites ramped up. Even though Id fortified myself with a satisfying late lunch of Peruvian pot roast, I still found myself longing to taste some of the many dishes described in this play. At times, I even wondered if our food critic would perhaps have been the better person to review the show. This absurd 90-minute, one-act play deals with hunger and longing of all kinds romantic, existential and sexual, as well as gastronomical. Set in 1961, the action takes place in the Caf du Grand Boeuf in Paris. When the owner, Victor (Ken Bryant) comes in for a meal, he informs his staff that not only is he not eating that evening, hes planning on starving himself to death. In one of the plays funnier scenes, the chef, Gaston (Dave Matthew Chesebro), describes in vivid detail how painful a death that is. But Victors mind is made up. So the staff winds up feeding him an imaginary dinner, a full seven-courses, from soup to nuts, as head waiter Claude (Mike Dinko) puts it. With each empty plate served, they describe in detail what the dish is, while the real food remains in the kitchen, uneaten. Its an absurd concept, and this cast, directed by Barry Hazen, tries but doesnt quite get the tone right. The play elicited some chuckles from the audience, but rarely full-out laughs. There are a couple of scenes where waiter-in-training Antoine (Juan Alejandro) plays Lady of Spain on the tuba, but theyre not as funny as you suspect theyre meant to be. The French accents vary greatly from actor to actor. The chef sounds purely American, while Claude and Mimi (Marta Sand) strive so much for authenticity that their thick accents defy comprehension at times. Yet they are two of the strongest actors in this piece. Mr. Dinkos character is delightfully haughty while his neglected wife pouts and plots. Mr. Alejandro is winsome as the young waiter, nave but eager to learn and eager to please. The owner, Victor, turn out to be a man who looks like Ernest Hemingway. He quotes him liberally, as if narrating his own life, and has just returned from a bullfight in Madrid for a while I was confused, thinking that his character was indeed the famous author. But, he turns out to be just an admirer whose life in many ways parallels the famous writer of short, declarative sentences. We come to learn that Victor has been spurned by his romantic interest, Louise (Sage Meyers), and that Hemingway himself had just committed suicide a few days ago. Mr. Bryant is very good at playing bemused; he is a man in an existential crisis, mourning many losses. But I kept waiting for him to be a little more forceful or deeper. His character, for much of the play, comes across as cryptic and unreadable. The playwright, Michael Hollinger, who also penned Opus, which played locally a number of years ago, has written a feast for those who love words. His dialogue and descriptions are succulent dishes to marvel over and enjoy. In addition to culinary descriptions, though, the play also includes a lengthy one of a bullfight. While this is a strong scene, it also made me lose the appetite it had previously built up; there is no honor in taunting and killing an animal for sport. (Confession: Whenever I hear about the annual Running With the Bulls, I always cheer for the bulls. And bullfights have always struck me as unnecessarily cruel.) This production is frustratingly uneven; I kept feeling there was more that could be mined here, more fully expressed. Set designer Michael Eyth has given the Lab Theater one of its more sophisticated sets, with a set of swinging doors that lead to the cafs kitchen and a nice touch a swordfish and reel mounted on the wall, recalling Hemingways Old Man and the Sea. This is an odd little play that grapples with longing and romance and celebrates the love of words and food. The theater touts it as a fast-paced comedy, but this is a sophisticated type of humor that sometimes seems beyond these actors ability. The ending, especially, is weak. I really couldnt decide if An Empty Plate is a plate half-empty or half-full, but it does succeed in whetting your appetite. nancySTETSONnstetson@floridaweekly.com An Empty Plate in the Caf du Grand Boeuf>> Who: The Laboratory Theater of Florida >> When Through July 2 >> Where: 1634 Woodford Ave., Fort Myers >> Cost: $21 for adults, $10 for students >> Info: 218-0481 or laboratorytheater orida. com COURTESY PHOTOSSet in 1961, the action takes place at the Caf du Grand Boeuf in Paris.

It doesnt much matter whether the player is defending or declaring; the thinking practically always follows the same logical lines. Consider the present case where South was declarer at four hearts and West led the spade queen. Three rounds of spades forced declarer to ruff, and left him with the problem of how to lead twice from dummy toward his diamond and club holdings when there was only one entry in dummy. But the solution was really not all that difficult to find. The opening lead had marked West with the Q-J of spades, so East had to have the rest of the key honor cards for his opening notrump bid. The only question remaining was how to take advantage of these clues, and it did not take South long to find the answer. After trumping the spade at trick three, he cashed the A-K of trumps and then led the jack of clubs. This sequence of plays rendered East helpless. He could do no better than win the club with the king and return a trump to dummys jack. Declarer thereupon led the ten of clubs, presenting East with a Hobsons choice. If he followed low, the lead would remain in dummy and declarer would then take the winning diamond finesse to bring in the contract. And if East instead covered the ten of clubs with the queen, South would win with the ace and return the three to dummys nine in order to take the diamond finesse. All of which goes to show that if you make it a regular practice to keep your mind on the task at hand, wondrous things can sometimes happen.
C14 WEEK OF JUNE 23-29, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY FILM CAPSULESNow You See Me 2 (Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Daniel Radcliffe) The Four Horsemen (Mr. Harrelson, Mr. Eisenberg, etc.) magicians are kidnapped by a tech magnate (Mr. Radcliffe) and forced to steal a valuable computer chip. Its clever and enjoyable; the fact that its largely far-fetched and unrealistic is part of its charm. Rated PG-13. Maggies Plan (Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke, Julianne Moore) Maggie (Ms. Gerwig) falls in love with and marries John (Mr. Hawke), only to realize she made a horrible mistake and needs to reunite him with his ex-wife (Ms. Moore). Its a clever premise with enough laughs and brutal honesty to make it solid entertainment. Rated R. Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (Andy Samberg, Sarah Silverman, Imogen Poots) Pop star Conner4Real (Mr. Samberg) strikes out with his second solo album, sending his life and career into a tailspin. Its a laugh riot from start to finish that dares to satirize pop culture and the idol worship of celebrities. Rated R.X-Men: Apocalypse (James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac) Prof. X (Mr. McAvoy) and Mystique (Ms. Lawrence) lead the X-Men against the worlds first and most powerful mutant, Apocalypse (Mr. Isaac). The villain is boring, and the ample visual effects dont make up for the flawed story. Rated PG-13.Alice Through The Looking Glass (Mia Wasikowska, Sacha Baron Cohen, Johnny Depp) Alice (Ms. Wasikowska) returns to Wonderland and travels back in time to save the Mad Matters (Mr. Depp) family. The visuals are impressive, but the performances and story feel overdone. Rated PG.Neighbors 2 1/2(Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, Zac Efron) After living next to Teddys (Mr. Efron) fraternity in Neighbors (2014), Mac (Mr. Rogen) and Kelly (Ms. Byrne) now must deal with a sorority (led by Chloe Grace Moretzs Shelby) moving in next door. Its not as funny as the original, and its strong feminist message doesnt quite fit with the absurd comedy. Still, its humorous enough to warrant a moderate recommendation. Rated R. The Nice Guys (Russell Cr owe, Ryan Gosling, Margaret Qualley) A private eye (Mr. Gosling) and muscle man (Mr. Crowe) team up to find a missing girl (Ms. Qualley) in 1977 Los Angeles. The chemistry between Mr. Crowe and Mr. Gosling is tremendous, and there are enough creative laughs to make it satisfactorily entertaining. Rated R.The Man Who Knew Infinity (Dev Patel, Jeremy Irons, Toby Jones) An Indian mathematics prodigy (Mr. Patel) challenges the establishment at Cambridge University during World War I. Mr. Irons is solid as the mentor, but as a whole the film doesnt add up to being more than a standard drama. Rated PG-13.

NoCentral Intelligence is an unfunny, horrid slog of a movie. Contrary to its title, it has no intelligence. The story is contrived and inane, and the action neither interesting nor exciting. In any movie with Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson as the leads, youd expect Mr. Hart to be annoying while Mr. Johnson plays it cool. In this one, though, its just the opposite: Mr. Hart plays it straight (and isnt funny), while Mr. Johnson hams it up as a unicornloving, fanny-pack wearing CIA agent (and isnt funny). The setup of co-writer and director Rawson Marshall Thurbers (Were the Millers) film is simple and also illogical: Calvin (Mr. Hart) was the guy everyone wanted to be in high school, and now 20 years later is a forensic accountant. Its important to note that he is and always has been a genuinely nice guy. Bob (Mr. Johnson) was overweight and bullied in high school, and now works for the CIA. Also importantly, he was a victim and is now an insufferably annoying, clingy and manipulative liar. Its as if Mr. Thurber and the other writers (Ike Barinholtz and David Stassen) sat in a room and said, Hey, lets have Hart play against type and not be annoying, and Johnson do the same and irritate the crap out of everyone. Bad idea. Doesnt work. The plot: Bob works his way back into Calvins life because he needs Calvins accounting skills to figure out the meeting place of the buyer and seller of encrypted satellite codes. Complicating matters is CIA Agent Pam Harris (Amy Ryan), who thinks Bob is the seller and is trying to arrest him. Its never funny. In fact, its painful to see a film trying so hard to be funny and just not connecting. For example, early on Calvin talks over lunch about his life with his wife (Danielle Nicolet), and you know hes telling jokes to the best of his ability, but theyre just landing. Like, the sound of silence permeating the theater not landing. Why is it like this? The jokes are redundant. Theyre Calvin dwelling on how hard his life is, which has already been established by this point. Mr. Hart gets a few decent one-liners in throughout the movie, but many of the jokes lack creativity and inspiration. Mr. Johnson struggles more than Mr. Hart. His Bob is supposed to be kooky and eccentric, but he comes off as faux charming and odious. Worse, hes leading Calvin on this path of saving the world, yet he never takes anything seriously even when hes clearly taking Calvin (whom he proclaims to have nothing but love and respect for) out of his comfort zone and forcing him to help. It might have aided the humor if we didnt spend so much time feeling sorry for Calvin as bully Bob (who repeatedly says he hates bullies) forces Calvin to risk his life. The folks we should really feel sorry here are those in the supporting cast. They were no doubt led to believe theyd be a small highlight in a film full of laughs, but instead they end up either lost in the middle of it all (Ms. Ryan and Ms. Nicolet) or flailing lifelessly in a cameo (Aaron Paul, Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy all appear). In the film business you have to trust others to make you look good; in Central Intelligence, nobody looks good. Bad job by all. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Stay for the credit cookies.

Best Family F Best of the Gulf s The piece is anachronistic enough, and its slightly fussy in an, oh, so Victorian way. But imagine the stories the glass brides basket I found this week could tell of brides, grooms, grandchildren and countless feasts. Even if it were a reproduction from the mid20th century, it already would have seen more than half a century of history. This is the type of piece I refer to as a grace note in a dcor. You wouldnt necessarily want a whole room of the stuff, but one or two pieces? Well, they can set the tone for a little fun and frivolity. When I was growing up, my grandmother had the most marvelous opalescent cranberry hobnail bowl by J. H. Hobbs, Brockunier & Co., one of the top 19th-century manufacturers of glass in the United States. It always sat on the buffet, and it was the first thing that caught the eye when you entered my grandparents Fort Myers dining room. Later, when the family was going through old photos, we found a photo of the bowl at the center of my great-greatgrandparents table, circa 1910 I think it had a small palm in it. That provided a layer of context for the bowl, and makes for a fun memory. As for this basket, it never hurts to have a little frivolity. It can be the wink in the eye of any dcor. scott SIMMONS firstname.lastname@example.org COLLECTORS CORNERYes, antiques can be frivolous. But dont we need a little frivolity? LOOK WHAT I FOUND Bought: DejaVu Estate Liquidators, 4084 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens; (561) 225-1950 or dejavuestateliquidators.com. Cost: $40. The Skinny: Yes, Im a basket case, and heres the basket to prove it. These beautifully made glass baskets set in silverplated frames frequently were wedding gifts to brides of the latter 19th century, hence their names. This was the time of a burgeoning middle class in Europe and particularly in America. Homeowners wanted pretty things to validate the fact that they were living better than their ancestors. The bowl itself is cased glass thin layers of purple and blue glass were applied to a milk-glass base. It probably was made in England. Oddly enough, the glass inserts usually outlast the metal frames, which almost always were made of a cheap white metal that was silver plated to look like something more expensive. Over time, the welds on the frames would pop and they would fall apart, or the silver would become worn away and the metal would get tossed. I was concerned that this might be a mid20th century reproduction, but both it and the bowl have all the wear one would expect after a century or more of use.

KOVEL: ANTIQUESCollectors learn high values of rare Alphabet Man teaching toys BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELEvery child has to learn the alphabet before learning to read, so some toys for those under 5 have been teaching toys. Blocks were the first. The oldest mention of alphabet blocks was in 1693 in England. But blocks with letters and pictures were not available for most families until 1820 w hen large numbers of sets were made in a factory. Most toys were made to teach religion, like a carved wooden Noahs ark, or to teach a skill like cooking using a toy st ove, pots and pans. A rare, famous teaching toy is the Alphabet Man or Yankee Schoolmaster. The 10-inch-tall iron figure of a man had an arm that moved when a lever was pushed. The man blinked his eyes, raised his left arm and pointed to a hole high on his chest. A letter appeared and the student had to name it. No one knows who made this complicated toy that was patented in 1884. Several of the men have sold in the past 10 years. In March, Bertoia Auctions in New Jersey sold the toy with some missing paint for $23,600. Q: What is Vitrock Depression glass? A: Vitrock is an opaque glass with fired-on colors made by Hocking Glass Co. from 1934 to 1937. Flower Rim and Lake Como are Vitrock patterns. Flower Rim dishes were made in white and in white with fired-on colors, usually solid red or green, and have raised flowers on the rim. Lake Como dishes were made with a center scene of a lake and a flower border, usually in blue and white, though sugar and creamers were also made in red and white. Q: I have my mothers antique satin wedding dress from 1931. Its in perfect condition. I would like to know if its worth anything or if anyone would want it. A: Yes, there is interest in old wedding dresses and gowns. You could donate it to a local historical museum or an organization that will resell it for a charitable cause. You could sell it to a vintage clothing store. Or it could be turned into something else. Old wedding dresses can be used to make christening gowns and pillows or can be enclosed in a locket, frame or Christmas ornament. It also can be used to make scarves, decorate baby blankets, bassinet skirts or wedding or baby photograph albums. Q: My box has a floral design. It is stamped PyroArt Wood on the bottom. It is 14 by 7 inches and has a hinged lid. I would like to know if it has any value. A: Pyrography is the art of putting a design on wood by burning or scorching it with a hot instrument. The art dates back to the 1400s, but it didnt become popular in the United States until the late 1800s. By 1890, burnt wood articles could be seen in magazines, and by 1900, companies were advertising trays, bowls, boxes, plaques, small tables and other articles, many with designs already stamped on them, ready for burning. Kits containing the necessary tools for burning, carving and painting were also available for the home decorator. The most popular period was 1890 to 1915. Your box probably is a glove or sewing box and is worth about $75. Q: I bought a set made up of an angular pitcher, two flared cups and a tray at a thrift store. Its silver and the cups are gold inside. One piece is stamped Kommet on the bottom and the other has Kommet. The pot is about six inches high, the cups are 2 by 2 inches, and the tray is seven inches in diameter. Do you know when and where it was made and what it was used for? A: The mark on your pitcher and cups is Russian and actually reads I-OMMET, written in English as Hommet or Jummet. The I-O indicates jeweler, and the first M stands for Mstera, a city about 185 miles east of Moscow that has been a center for Russian icon painting and other arts and crafts. MET indicates that it is a nonprecious metal or alloy, probably of copper and nickel and/or iron. Your set, made in the 1960s, is typical of items made as souvenirs. It was probably used for tea. Its worth less than $100. Tip: To remove white rings usually made by damp glasses or hot cups of coffee from wooden tabletops, rub the spot with a mixture of mayonnaise and toothpaste. Wipe, then polish. Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel answer questions sent to the column. We cannot guarantee the return of photographs, but if a stamped envelope is included, we will try. The amount of mail makes personal answers or appraisals impossible. Write to Kovels, (Florida Weekly), King Features Syndicate, 300 W. 57th St., New York, NY 10019. The iron man is pointing to a letter of the alphabet to help a child learn letters. The toy brought $23,600 in a March sale.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JUNE 23-29, 2016 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT C19 BEHIND THE WHEELAlfa Romeo 4C Spider: the classic Italian automotive romance Alfa Romeo can sell cars on mystique alone. The aura surrounds everything from a storied racing history that helped launch Enzo Ferrari to Dustin Hoffman racing up and down the California coast looking for love. When all these sensations come together, car enthusiasts immediately take notice. The Alfa Romeo 4C Spider revives the best in the old Italian sports car tradition. The body is an impossibly sleek design that comes from a mind that cares more about rolling sculpture than about how easy it will be to produce. The deep V of the front grille is the starting point for an uninterrupted symmetrical line that creates a power bulge in the hood, a flirtatious curve in the door and meets in a smooth rear panel ahead of the rear spoiler. It is as organic as a mountain river feeding the calm shores of Lake Como. The Spider is the open-air version, with a roll-off soft top that removes the small center section and can be stored in the diminutive trunk (as long as no one is trying to bring food to the picnic, too). Theres also an optional removable hard top, but that only fits in the garage. Arriving in an open-top Alfa has an added appeal. Letting the sunshine in means showcasing the driver, who instantly gives strangers the impression of taste and distinction. But there is a practical side to the Spider, too. A carbon fiber center section gives the 4C its strength in much the same way modern racecars gain strength while remaining featherweights. The downside on a road car like the Alfa is that none of its wider-than-expected stance makes its way into the interior in the form of extra space. Open the door, and there is a very wide threshold to overcome. In the coupe version of the 4C, it can make for an awkward transition of stepping out and over at the same time. In the Spider version, people who are limber enough can hop in with both feet and slide down into the seat (think of it as how the extra tall Tom Selleck entered his targa-top Ferrari in Magnum P.I.). These wide doorsills mean the seating for two is quite snug. Elbows arent touching on any normal ride, but outstretched arms can operate both door handles simultaneously if needed. Creature comforts include nice leather, power windows/locks and air conditioning so the top can stay out even in the hot summer. The stereo looks like the same kind a teenager would install after saving a months worth of pizza delivery tips, but its supposed to be an afterthought in this car anyway. The 1.75-liter turbocharged engine provides the real soundtrack. It might seem like a small motor, but the big turbo produces 237 hp and the sweetest sounds ever to be made by mechanical parts. With the motor mounted directly behind the seats, it feels like the driver is sitting in the middle of an automotive symphony that combines the rush of the turbocharger, the fury of a small displacement motor and the exhaust burble of a V8. The sound is an intoxicating experience that forgives any of this cars faults. The 4Cs lightweight nature weighing in at less than 2,500 pounds is most definitely a factor in the cars performance. Its also means Alfa Romeo does not install power steering. That might seem like a cheap move in a car that starts at $58,995 and adds $10K more for the privilege of removing the roof. But this is really an exotic thats all about the driving experience. So frivolous components have been discarded. Instead, the investment goes into features such as the six-speed paddle-shifted dual-clutch transmission, which works in conjunction with a programmable DNA system that can dial-in the dynamics of the car for everything from easy shifting for urban traffic to split-second raceready reactions. This is not a roadster for everyone. The Porsche Boxster offers far more comfort and everyday usability for similar money. But for those of us who remember when driving a European sports car was an exotic experience born from a passionate, single-minded vision faults and all this Alfa has a soul. mylesKORNBLATTmk@autominded.com

I could have easily gone with fried oysters, one of my all-time favorites. Or I could have asked for a cheeseburger, my usual practice on my first visit to any establishment that has burgers on the menu. But the BLT Wrap called out for some reason. And I was glad it did. Huge for a wrap, it was as much a handful as the biggest burrito Ive ever had. Chunks of thick, crisp bacon were at the core, surrounded by what else? shredded lettuce and nice, ripe tomato. A thin smear of mayo finished it off nicely. I enjoyed every bite. The fries ($2.25) my friends and I ordered to share were divine and quickly devoured, which is why I didnt quite finish the tasty pasta salad that came with my wrap. To Try Next Time: A return to Rustys is in order to belly up to the raw bar for fresh oysters on the half shell and fresh-shucked middleneck clams, most likely to be followed by middleneck clams and peel-andeat shrimp from the steamer pot. I was also intrigued by something called Gronk Chowder, described on the menu as a delicious mixture of conch and clam chowder.

Reception & 5 Course Menu Tuesday, June 28th @ 6:30pm $130 per person VINO Hong Kong tasting seminar affirms California wines tops in the U.S.Its probably no surprise that over 90 percent of the wine made in the U.S. comes from California. And the 4,400 California wineries make it the fourth largest producer of wine in the world after Italy, France and Spain. That doesnt mean other states dont make great wine. Some of our favorite cabernets and syrahs come from Washington State, and incredible pinot noirs come from Oregon. Weve sampled some surprisingly good wines from Virginia. But in terms of sheer volume, the Golden State tops the list. And not all the great wines come from Napa and Sonoma. Other regions, like Paso Robles, the Santa Cruz Mountains and Santa Barbara are producing terrific whites and reds in all price and quality ranges. As if I needed to be convinced, a recent tasting seminar at VinExpo in Hong Kong reinforced what I already knew, in the most delicious way. The California Style! tasting session, directed by four women who are prominent in the wine industry, was as entertaining as it was informative. And we all got a free pair of sunglasses. Speaking were Master of Wine Debra Meiburg, author Karen MacNeil, chairman of the Institute of Masters of Wine Sara Jane Evans and host of the TV series New American Cuisine Sarah Kemp. There was another dimension at work, as well. It has long been debated whether women taste and perceive wine differently than men, as French wine critic Isabel Fort maintains. Shes the author of several wine guides aimed specifically at female wine lovers. So it was interesting to hear the four women on the panel offer their evaluations of the 16 California wines we sampled. The samplings came from all parts of the state. The good news is most of the wines are readily available locally. They are a bit in the splurge category, but highly recommended. Au Bon Climat Chardonnay Bien Nacido Vineyard 2012 This is a well-known vineyard, and many winemakers use these grapes in their products. Au Bon Climats Jim Clendenen takes a very technical approach to his winemaking, and this example offers lemon and lime notes with old world flavors of apple and vanilla. $35. Mondavi Fum Blanc To Kalon Vineyard 2013 In the 1960s Robert Mondavi put California Sauvignon Blanc on the map, along with the rest of Californias wines. And the To Kalon vineyard is another one of those blessed pieces of ground where grapes grow their best. This wine offers classic grapefruit and lemon blossom flavors, along with cantaloupe and guava. $50. Heitz Marthas Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 One of the best known premium cabernets from Napa Valley, the grapes from this vineyard are known for offering a tantalizing faint mint flavor, along with classic cassis, cigar box and spice. Get a bottle for your birthday. $190. Shafer Syrah Relentless 2012 This was my wine of the day. Its 89 percent syrah and the rest petite sirah with jazzy dark flavors of plum, chocolate, smoke and blackberry. The finish goes on forever. Buy it now and open it in about five years. $85.Ask the Wine WhispererQ. How important is the vintage in a wine? Don S., Bonita SpringsA. The quality of a particular vintage depends on the region the wine comes from. There are no vintage years that are great in every locale, though critics generally agree on good years from the most famous winegrowing regions, like Bordeaux and Burgundy. Most wines in the under $50 range are made to achieve a consistent style from year to year. Hot vintages produce wines that are fruity and high in alcohol, while cooler years generally produce lighter-bodied wines with a bit more acidity. Jerry Greenfield is The Wine Whisperer.

CHEF Q&AA celebrated chef shares his inspirations and his aspirations BY LINDSEY NESMITHlnesmith@ oridaweekly.comFrom the artisan salts on the tables at Sea Salt to opera nights at Barbatella, Fabrizio Aielli certainly knows how to engage Neapolitans with contemporary takes on everything from local seafood to Italian classics. In 1995, his Washington, D.C., restaurant, Teatro Goldoni, was hailed by magazines including Esquire and Gourmet as one of the best restaurants in the country. Read on to find out how he built up his credibility on the national cuisine scene and how lucky we are to have him wining and dining us at his two downtown establishments. Q: What inspired you to pursue culinary arts? A: My first inspiration was the pleasure of good food. When I saw a ripe, beautiful tomato, I wanted to create something from it. I grew up in Venice, where my mother and grandmother went to the market every day and bought fresh ingredients for the days meals. When my mother was cooking, family and friends were smiling and happy, and their joy also inspired me. In the summer, we left the city and spent two months on my grandparents farm where we raised chickens, had a vegetable garden and fresh ingredients for every meal. I was surrounded by good food growing up. I always wanted to cook. My mother allowed me to help her in the kitchen starting when I was about 8. I was cooking with her my first dishes such as egg frittatas, breads and cakes. Many chefs say their mothers and grandmothers were their inspiration, and its very true for me. Q: What is your professional background? A: I started working in restaurants when I was 14, during the summer when there was no school. My first job was doing prep. I wanted to learn, but the chef was very protective of his kitchen. Id go to work at 9 a.m. and the sauces and everything were already made. He wanted no one to learn because theyd take his job. But I was always looking and learning, and I knew that I didnt need to copy what he or anyone else was doing. I have followed my own path ever since. Q: How do you describe your unique style? A: All chefs are absolutely equal Not better, just different. Who can judge the difference? The customer. Q: Can you tell us about your experience cooking at the James Beard House in October 2015 with other Southwest Florida chefs? A: The best thing about the experience last year was cooking with a group of great chefs and friends, including my executive chef, Jason Goddard; Todd Johnson from Rumrunners; chocolatier Norman Love; George Fistrovich of The Ritz-Carlton and Harold Balink of Harolds. The Beard House has a small kitchen, so it felt like we were in a private home cooking for friends. Q: How did it feel when your Teatro Goldoni in Washington, D.D., was named among the countrys best restaurants? A: I was so grateful for the recognition of my hard work and that of my team. But when you gain the success, do not forget where you started. Go back to the stove and keep cooking. Q: What do you consider your greatest culinary accomplishments? A: The greatest accomplishment is to pass my experience to others and share my passion with young and talented chefs. Q : Who have been your greatest culinary influences? A: Ive learned from a lot of people. I love to watch, to learn, to be around other cooks but my mother and grandmother were my first and best mentors. Q: What is your favorite culinary experience as a diner? A: For me, when someone smiles at you and makes you feel that you are welcome, that is the most important thing. Its a sentimental experience. I really like perfection, but with the art of simplicity. If you make a perfect plate, and when you serve it in a tower and the tower falls down, it is meant to be that way. It is a different perfection. Its like the Pisa Tower. Everyone thought it was a mistake, and now its one of the most famous buildings in the world. Q: What experiences have tested and improved your abilities as a chef? A: To be in a working kitchen is how you improve your abilities as a chef. My experience has taught me that to be a good chef, you have to be consistent and control your food costs. And you need to be like an artist and plate your dishes as if they were paintings. And finally, you cannot forget your grandmothers cooking. Q: Can you share with us your plans for the future? A: I am fortunate that my passion is my livelihood and I am very content with the present. I have a great business partner in my wife, Ingrid Aielli, and a team that is dedicated to helping me run my restaurants. But like most people, I do have a dream. One day I would love to have a little restaurant and my own farm with free-range chickens, a vegetable garden and fruit trees. I would cook for a small group of diners, and every night there would be a different menu from what is fresh from the farm. And 100 percent of the proceeds would go to childrens charities. I plan to devote my time and energy to educating children and their parents about the importance of healthy cooking and eating. I want to pass on to the next generation a love for the simplicity and perfection of nutritious ingredients, to inspire them the way I was inspired by good food when I was young.

YOUR GUIDE TO NEW HOME COMMUNITIES IN SOUTHWEST FLORIDA If the clubhouse is the social and recreational centerpiece of a community then Kalea Bays clubhouse will surely be one of the busiest places in the luxury, residential high-rise community being developed on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples. The 88,000-square-foot clubhouse, which is currently under construction, is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance. 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 Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales and Marketing. 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 informal meals and tropical drinks throughout the day. 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. Rather than putting their guests up in hotels throughout the Naples and Bonita Springs area, they can vacation within the community. Its a real convenience. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. The interior design of Kalea Bays clubhouse has been awarded to highly respected interior design firm, Naplesbased CID Design Group. The company will be responsible for the interior design of the clubhouse, guest cottages and towers, as well as assisting with the design direction and planning of the outdoor amenities and landscape areas. CID Design Group is extremely delighted to have been awarded the Kalea Bay project, and more importantly, trusted with this amazing opportunity seeing as its in our home town, stated Jenn Zella, Principal and Director of Design for the firm. According to Zella, the interior design for Kalea Bay will complement the communitys modern seaside, villa-style architecture, accented with the charm of old Florida. CID Design Group has in its possession reclaimed wood from the recent Naples Pier reconstruction, both original wood and from the renovation after the historic Hurricane Donna of 1960. The company plans to integrate the pier wood pieces as design elements within the clubhouse. Construction on the clubhouse is slated for completion in the summer of next year and will coincide with the anticipated move-in of the residents in the first tower, which is also under construction. The 22-story tower, with 120 residences, will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. Currently construction crews are working on the towers 17th floor. 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. Residences 3 and 4 are four-bedroom/four-bath plans with 3,921 total square feet. All residents 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. 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. The towers amenities are located on the rooftop, explained Wilson. Including our sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the open-air fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and the beaches. Those beaches include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally in 2015, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9.
