A2 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY 7200 Trail Boulevard, Naples, (239) 598-3330 | Other locations in Ft. Myers, Sarasota, Tarpon Springs and Pinellas Park | COMMENTARYLooking back at MarcoThe day we drove into West Miami to see where Marco Rubio grew up and where he still lived with his wife and four children only three blocks away, at the end of Southwest 13th Street Osvaldo Waddy Padilla took me home to meet his parents. Sen. Rubio was as eager as a big-eared puppy to become the next vice president of the United States, which is why we were there. Hed risen like Cuban cream to the top of the milk jug that made up Mitt Romneys list of choices. The year was 2012 and Marco, who had spent one year as a West Miami councilman making $100 a month, and eight years as a state representative making $29,697 for 12 months, had now served as a U.S. senator since 2009. For that job, he was paid $174,000, a salary he continued to make until last year, when his salary was reported to be $709,719, impressing almost everybody in the neighborhood. That included the West Miami cops, who followed us around and watched us from cameras hidden on Marcos street, and perhaps elsewhere. After six hours of hobnobbing we talked to people who had either known Marco or thought a lot about him Waddy drove me across town to Hialeah to introduce me to his parents, Aida and Osvaldo Padilla. Now gone from the world, they were two of the toughest, most uncomplaining people Ive ever met. It helped put things in perspective. His father went to the kitchen and made me Cuban coffee so strong it could have powered a battleship. He served it to me personally. Waddys mother sat on the couch and took all of me in, a big bald Anglo invading her small, tidy living room with a smile that probably seemed etched in cheese, or whatever else defines Anglo smiles. She matched me grin for grin and showed me an attentive warmth that made me wonder if I had two mothers, not just one. Together, and proudly, the Padillas escorted me into their backyard and showed me their gardens and fruit trees. They grew up on farms, and there were three things they knew how to do well: Work like hell, grow crops and raise children in the Catholic Church. They spoke little English, but their demeanors suggested that anyone their son liked, and anything their son did like earn a masters degree from Northwestern University or become not just a fine journalist, a fine father and (for six years) an exceptionally talented editor at Florida Weekly, but a successful contractor was OK with them. The Padillas had escaped Castro in the early 1960s with their lives, and nothing else. They stood about 5 feet tall, or less; significantly less in his mothers case. With three children, Mr. Padilla held down a factory job in Hialeah running the line at the Gator Shoe Corp. for a few decades before the owners let him go so they wouldnt have to pay his retirement. His mother worked days in service jobs and stayed up at night sewing on small contracts, for companies that needed her talent piecemeal. Although Marcos immigrant-parent story seems similar at first glance, closer inspection has shown something else. Marcos parents came to the U.S. in 1956 not following the revolution, like Waddys, and not in retreat from a thug (Castro) in 1959 as Marco often claimed. There are a few other differences, too. Although Marco and Waddy are roughly the same age (Sen. Rubio was 45 in late May, and Waddy will be 44 next month) although both men are ambitious and well-educated aspirants to the American Dream, the sons of Cuban immigrants Waddy always does what he says. And he can work his tail off getting the job done. Perhaps that describes Marco as well, although I have trouble believing it when I consider his Senate record. Since long before he announced his candidacy in a failed bid to win the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, the senator has not been doing his job. As I have written previously, in 43 Senate votes between 2011 and 2014, he voted against policies that would protect the environment and for powerful corporate interests 39 times, according to the League of Conservation voters, which tracks elected officials from both the Democratic and the Republican parties. Sen. Rubio was against clean water protections, against climate change safeguards, against stopping industrial farm clean-water violations, and against finding money for the Gulf Coast Restoration & Land and Water Fund. At the time, he voted to hold insurance rates for flood zones below market rate, virtually guaranteeing more development in wetlands, forests and environments that can help reduce flood damage. Then he became interested in the presidency. In 20 important votes last year, he missed 14, or 70 percent. And in the six votes he cast, he voted to ignore the byproducts of toxic tar sands, attack clean water provisions, ignore climate change, drill for oil on public lands and not to join international efforts to combat climate change. So far this year his record is better: Sen. Rubio has missed only a third of 12 votes he might have cast as a U.S. Senator in 2016, an absentee rate of 33 percent. But he probably figures theres another year or four ahead of him in the senate as he rounds toward the White House in 2020 courtesy of the very forgiving Florida electorate. Although he said earlier he would retire to private life, last week Sen. Rubio announced his intention to run for the Senate again. Fortunately, I have a voting option I can be proud of: Ill just write in my old pal, Waddy Padilla. roger

His post-Orlando jeremiad fit the pattern. There is something so inherently inflammatory in Trumps delivery that he could read the Gettysburg Address and some listeners would wonder how he could possibly say such a thing. The kernel of Trumps speech was rather obvious: The bottom line is that the only reason the killer was in America in the first place was because we allowed his family to come here. That is a fact, and its a fact we need to talk about. The reaction of much of the opinion elite was nearly instantaneous: Whatever we do, lets not talk about that fact. Countless articles have been written on how much better we are at assimilating Muslim immigrants than Europe is, usually with back-patting over our openness and fluidity as a society in contrast to the self-defeating insularity of a country like France. This may be true, but the assumption that we have the magic formula is under stress now that weve repeatedly suffered mass killings by second-generation immigrants. The Islamic State model of inspiring lone wolves already here is dependent on loosely assimilated American Muslims susceptible to its hateful appeals. Disturbingly, it is finding takers.In six months, terrorists have killed more than 60 people on our shores; two of the perpetrators were the sons of immigrants, and one an immigrant herself.One of the reasons we have avoided the problems of a France may be sheer numbers. France has 50 percent more Muslim immigrants than we do, even though it is a much smaller country. Only 1 percent of the U.S. population is Muslim; 7.5 percent of the French population is. On the current trajectory, we will take in 1 million Muslim immigrants or more over the next decade. It cant be out of bounds to ask whether thats a good idea. Or it shouldnt be. The immigration debate is so encrusted with unexamined pieties that any suggestion that we reduce the number or the composition of the current immigrant flow is taken as an attempt to kneecap the Statue of Liberty. At bottom, the Trump doctrine on immigration is that our policy should serve our values and interests, and the status quo fails on both counts. That said, his proposed Muslim ban is a mistake. It communicates hostility to all Muslims and besides, it is unworkable. Responsibility for Omar Mateens heinous act is all his own, but it is certainly relevant that his Dear Old Dad supports the Taliban and hates gays. He is exactly the kind of immigrant you would hope to deny the priceless privilege of coming here. Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies proposes to reduce legal immigration. If we eliminated the visa lottery, tightened the criteria for family unification and accepted fewer refugees, we would diminish the number of low-skilled immigrants who have trouble thriving here, and at the margins, the number of new Muslim entrants. Donald Trump does the cause of immigration restriction a disservice by rendering it in caricature. But the questions he raises wont go away, and they shouldnt. Rich Lowry is the editor of the National Review. OPINIONThere will be bloodThree years have passed since the mass shooting by a deranged gunman killing 20 school children and six adults in Sandy Hook Elementary School. It has been just over a year since a white racist gunned down nine African-Americans attending a Bible study class in an historic A.M.E. church in Charleston. Six months ago, 14 people were killed and 23 were wounded in a mass shooting by a radicalized terrorist in San Bernardino. The depravity of these crimes stunned the nation but not enough for Congress to act decisively on issues of gun control. There have been countless acts of gun violence before and since. Nicholas Kristof writes that more people have died since 1970 from gun violence, including suicides, than died in all the wars in U.S. history, going as far back as the American Revolution. And now we have Orlando. Forty-nine Americans were murdered, and 53 were seriously injured, victims of a mass shooting as they were partying in a gay nightclub in the town that Disney built. In the aftermath of the tragedy, a rational plan of action eludes us once again. We know it was a hate crime by a radicalized, homegrown terrorist, targeting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, claiming allegiance to ISIS as his cause. Even so, some lawmakers cant keep themselves from narrowing the full breadth of the gunmans motives nor the ease with which he legally obtained his guns. They have homed in on Islamic terrorism as the predominant theme of the tragedy, and tend to edit out crucial parts of the story. It was a crime of hate against LGBTs; and it happened as it did because of the stunning lack of gun controls in place to thwart a lone wolf terrorist like Omar Mateen, the shooter. Mateen was able to arm his ruthless intentions because of the ease with which he legally obtained the guns he used. These are the inconvenient truths too many conservatives think are better left unsaid or ignored. In the context of the 2016 presidential campaign, the causes of this tragic event are lightning in a bottle, difficult to contain but dangerous to ignore. Conservatives who stick to Islamic terrorism as the focal point of their narrative, denounce President Obama for not casting blame as they do. They make no distinction between Muslims and the Muslim faith, making all the scapegoats with global guilt by association. Obama made an extraordinary reply, chastising their rhetoric as a political talking point. He called for a congressional plan of action to minimize as best we can the dangers in a dangerous world. He warned the nation is at greater risk when we say all Muslims and their faith is the enemy. Conservative lawmakers soldier on, forcing their narrative to fit the box they have built for themselves with a virulent, anti-gay track record of discriminatory policies. They avoid acknowledging the Florida shooting as a hate crime targeting the LGBT community. The full-blown consequence of sowing seeds of hate is a bit too close to home to the right wing. It has gone whole-hog against equitable treatment of LGBTs and is proud of it. Conservative lawmakers fought marriage equality, introducing more than 200 anti-LGBT bills in 34 states that sanction discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. In Florida, it is legal for employers and businesses to discriminate against gays, and for homophobic, radicalized terrorists to buy a gun to shoot them. The New York Times reports LGBTs are now twice as likely to be targets of hate crimes as African-Americans. Donald Trump waded in, hinting Obama was complicit in the terrorist attack, implying the president is a closet Muslim. He said fewer lives would have been lost in Orlando had patrons in the bar that night been packing heat. He concluded the solution to prevent mass shootings by lone wolves is a gun in every pot. He would ban all Muslim immigrants, and bring back the good ole days of racial profiling. Not everyone thinks like Trump. In the days following the Orlando attack, Christopher S. Murphy (D-Conn.) led a 15-hour filibuster on the Senate floor. He proposed common sense actions to curb gun violence and close loopholes associated with gun sales. Despite polls showing 92 percent of Americans support stronger gun control measures, the proposed legislation was blocked on the floor of the U.S. Senate. Congress refuses to act. Selling guns to suspected terrorists remains legal. To hear the National Rifle Association tell it, the Second Amendment protects the right of people with murder on their minds to choose the most efficient gun for killing their money can buy. They and their Congressional pimps say more guns everywhere will make us safer in our universities, public places, schools, churches, shopping centers, movie houses, parks, bars and restaurants. The truth is guns are already prevalent in our society. We need not guess the outcome: There will be blood. Leslie Lilly is a native Floridian.

For seniors like John, who is 71 and an extended-stay resident of the Golden Gate Quality Inn & Suites, securing a reliable source of food has been difficult. For the past three years, he has been riding his bike to Grace Place for Children and Families to take advantage of the organizations Friday Food Pantry. John retired nine years ago as a hair stylist with hopes that his savings and Social Security payments would provide a dependable income. Over the past few years, however, his finances and government benefits have not stretched as far as he anticipated. One recent Friday, John held number 29 in the long line of people waiting for one of the 210 bags of food distributed each week. I used to get $189 in food stamps, but that amount has been reduced to $54 worth, he said. I wouldnt be eating without the support Grace Place provides. Ultimately, recent trends in rising housing costs and public assistance reductions have forced more people to seek support from agencies such as Grace Place. According to Grace Place CEO Tim Ferguson, the number of people over the age of 65 coming to the Friday Food Pantry has nearly doubled in the past year, exceeding growth rates for all other groups. In fact, Mr. Ferguson says, senior citizens now account for 10 percent of all participants benefiting from the program. For many of the parents with children at Grace Place, the Friday Food Pantry provides cost relief for more expensive grocery items such as fresh fruits and vegetables. Mr. Ferguson says these parents strongly value their self-sufficiency and take advantage of the pantry only when their finances are hit by seasonal job fluctuations or unexpected expenses. And even then, he adds, they typically decline food items they can afford to buy for themselves, leaving them to help others in greater need. As a nonprofit organization serving the needs of children and adults in the Golden Gate community, we believe that taking the lead to address food insecurity supports our educational mission in providing a pathway out of poverty, Mr. Ferguson says. Without the support of our community partners and volunteers, we would not be able to provide this essential service. Our Friday Food Pantry is a wonderful opportunity for folks looking for an immediate, hands-on experience with our families. The pantry offers many opportunities for volunteer involvement. To learn about how you can help, call Grace Place at 234-2467. Jason Forest is the marketing manager at Grace Place for Children and Families in Golden Gate.

People celebrating to the south in Marco Island, Naples and Bonita Springs, or to the north in Port Charlotte and Venice Beach may be equally privileged. People on Marco Island will likely also see the display set to burst above a big, solidly anchored barge in the waters off the Naples pier. The barge is donated for the celebration by Manhattan Construction, a bridge and waterworks company that did the same thing for New Years Eve, says Mike Leslie, deputy director of community relations. Its a job for them, getting it to the Landings (from Sarasota), putting it together, and getting it to the Pier its a real effort that saves us money, and which the city really appreciates, Mr Leslie says. And people will see it for miles. On the Atlantic side, meanwhile, We do ours off a barge, and you can be out on the sea wall and see these others Lake Worths or Boynton Beach, North Palm at their golf course. It can be fun and inspiring, seeing them all up and down the coast, says Mary Pinak, the community events manager in West Palm Beach, where the 4th on Flagler fireworks show will likely draw 80,000 or more people. The festivities get under way two days earlier, on Saturday. The Fort Myers show will be the atdark jewel in the crown of an evening that stretches from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. with food vendors, beer and soda tents, bounce houses for kids and the like, says Pam Lemmerman, vice president of the River District Alliance. Fireworks shows this big happen only once a year (New Years Eve isnt quite the same thing, officials say), and its not as easy as it looks. With bonfires, you simply gather a few big sticks and pick a point on a cliff-top or beach visible from the next bonfire up or down the coast. With fireworks, its a little more complicated for the towns or organizations that sponsor big July 4th shows. They hire sophisticated professionals who can light up the sky, fire up the joy, and burn up the cash in the coffers but all without burning up anybody or anything else, which is the key.The expertsThe scheduling and planning start the previous year in most cases, when cities or civic organizations hire outfits such as PyroTecnico FX based in San Antonio, Fla., and doing the shows next month in West Palm and Cape Coral or Zambelli Fireworks, doing shows elsewhere in Palm Beach County (Lake Worth, Wellington, Deerfield, Delray Beach and others) and on Marco Island, in Naples, in Fort Myers, and points north. Zambelli will do more than 80 shows in the state, says Mike Simmons, Florida operations manager out of Boca Raton for the Pittsburgh-based company. We start planning in December and have some clients under contract by then, and by March were sold out, even though customers were still calling even last week, says Mr. Simmons. For each show, an elaborate choreography of permit gathering, planning, security preparations and insurance contracting occur, all of which the companies do for the clients. Depending on the location, permits must come from local governments, law enforcement agencies, state DEP regulators, the FAA (if a display is within 25 miles of an airport), and even the Coast Guard if the display occurs on or over navigable water. We have project managers and show designers sometimes theyre the same person and for us theyre probably the most important in the effort, says Mr. Simmons. The project manager meets with customers, does site selection, contracts, goes through and picks the product, does the permitting we spend many, many hours on each display. The work includes planning and synchronizing of shells and music to the tastes of customers and to locations. We do work with radio partners, we pick out music that goes with their stations, says Ms. Pinak. They put together the MP-3, mix it, and we send the music to the fireworks company the third week in May. They figure out what best shells are for the show. The company must also pay close attention to seemingly simple details that may require sophisticated skills. For example, shells must burst no lower than 400 feet but no higher than 600 over West Palm. And finally, a show requires the deployment of both managers and specially trained crews who will truck in the equipment to the site on July 3, then work from dawn to midnight on Independence Day, Mr. Simmons explains. For a typical display, a team includes one senior technician and two to four other technicians. Once the shows are ready to go, everything is preloaded, and most of the shows I have are electric-fired, so my guys are 125 feet away, with the exception of the barges for Naples and Marco Island. Then they have to be right there.Barge adventuresDelivering a July 4th display not only over BOOMSFrom page 1 Events celebrating Independence DaySaturday, July 2 Historic Everglades City salutes Independence Day starting at 10 a.m. on the steps of City Hall.

Pezeshkan, vice president of Manhattan Construction, based in Naples. The company is co-owned by Francis Rooney, a multi-millionaire Naples Republican who recently put his hat in the ring for the District 19 Congressional seat now held by U.S. Rep. Curt Clawson. The special barge has been trucked into the Landings in Naples from a Sarasota job in three parts, and once its set up it weighs about 100,000 pounds, says Mr. Peszeshkan. It will be assembled and put in the water at the Landings, and then the companys push boat will deliver it at about three miles per hour, or a walking pace through Gordons Pass and out to its position off the Naples Pier hours before dark, on July 4. Pins about 4 to 5 feet long are placed every 18 to 24 inches to hold the sections in place, and well anchor the barge off at two or three corners, he explains. Once everybody is out of the way, the fireworks crew will stay on board behind a protective barrier. Everything is remotedetonated from behind that barrier. And all the other vessels in the water that night have to be 500 to 1,000 feet away, except a police boat and a fire boat, says Mr. Pezeshkan. So, well set it up Thursday and make sure its up and the push boat has no issues all fluids and spark plugs and everythings a go, and then on Sunday and Monday the fireworks company, Zambelli, will set up the tubes and mortar shells on board. For the men in the charge of the barge K.P. Pezushkan with his trusted colleague, Brett Martin, a bridge specialist intimately familiar with barge work, its a tense time. As you know, the weather has been doing some peculiar things, and we want everything to go right but you never know what might come up, says Mr. Pezushkan. On New Years Eve, for example, one mortar round exploded immediately after it was launched from the barge and a small fire broke out, which the crew contained. The technicians, in particular, are touchy about fires.What the money buysZambellis technicians usually are not full-time employees. Instead, they arrive from other careers as lawyers, doctors, sales people, or engineers, Mr. Simmons says people united by a willingness to get close to potentially dangerous explosives, and the desire to work long hours during holidays simply because they like it (and they get paid). Shells can range in cost from $10 to hundreds of dollars or more in a few rare cases. Theyre fired out of black polymer pipes arranged in racks with varying numbers from four to 10 tubes per rack, Mr. Simmons says. By the time the show is put in place, it has been long since designed. It takes about an hour of design work on a computer choreographed show for every minute of the show, Mr. Simmons notes. What all this means for cities and civic groups is a July 4th production that should include plenty of money coming in as well as money going out. Vendor fees and licenses, entertainment and all the associated opportunities at these free shows can help cover the costs, officials say. Although the celebrations are hours long, the fireworks displays themselves usually come in the 18to 25-minute range. Some are more dense with the explosions of light and color than others, as the costs (which include security, officials are quick to point out) suggest. For the West Palm show, Flagler on 4th, with about 5,000 shells going up in a synchronization with music and seven different radio stations in the area, the cost is $75,000, says Mary Pinak. In Cape Coral, for 18 to 22 minutes in a Disney-like synchronization with 4,000 shells fired from both sides and in the middle of a mile-long bridge over the Caloosahatchee River, the city will pay $50,000, says Todd King. In Naples, the cost of the fireworks display itself will be $30,000 for about 25 minutes but Manhattan Constructions barge donation with the push-boat is probably worth in the $20,000 to $25,000 range alone, officials say. And in downtown Fort Myers, where the nonprofit River District Alliance is sponsoring 20 minutes of bombs bursting on air, the cost is $20,000. The companies have been doing it a long time, and they give a lot for what they get, officials agree. Zambelli, for example, was founded in 1893 by Italian immigrant Antonio Zambelli. Now, its an international trader and performer. A good portion of what we use comes from China, the Japanese manufacture some, the Spanish, Italy, there are even shells made in Mexico, now and in addition, we manufacture some of our own shells. Apparently, special fireworks are like special recipes: the cooks keep them secret. When Antonio Zambelli arrived here in the 19th century he had a little black book, and there are specialty things we manufacture today that still come from that book, Mr. Simmons explains. The result is a kind of magic, perhaps even for those who have done this time and again. I never get tired of it, admits Ms. Pinak. Every time we do this event theres a different-aged child and you look into their face and see the wonder youre making memories for families. Its always a new experience, and were about creating that wonder. It makes a difference in their lives. CITY OF WEST PALM BEACH COURTESY PHOTOThe 4th on Flagler fireworks show will likely draw 80,000 or more people. The festivities get underway two days earlier, on Saturday.

Pure Image Productions of Naples was stationed with cameras on boats and underwater to record not only the sinking of the reef structures, but the ensuing growth of new ecosystems. The resulting 56-minute documentary, Paradise Reef: The World is Watching, has its Florida television debut at 8 p.m. Thursday, June 30, on WGCU (TV channel 30.1; cable channels 3 and 440; DirecTV channel 30). Extensive underwater footage shows abundant marine life on the new artificial reef sites. Interviews with environmental conservationists including Everglades photographer Clyde Butcher and officials with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve help tell how the reef is 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 water-filtering pathways to the Gulf of Mexico. 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 documentary is provided by the Naples, Marco Island, Everglades Convention and Visitors Bureau through the Collier County tourist development tax.

With one paying adult ($12.95), up to four kids can explore the grounds, play games, create crafts and get up close with animals while learning about Southwest Floridas environments and wildlife. Its important for children, as well as adults, to learn what we can all do to protect these species and their habitats, says Rob Moher, Conservancy of Southwest Florida president and CEO. Over the course of eight Saturdays, children can earn Conservancy Explorer pins to add to their Junior Naturalist sash. At the Dalton Discovery Center, visitors encounter live animals, get hands-on in the touch tank and see Luna, the loggerhead sea turtle, in the 5,000-gallon aquarium. At the von Arx Wildlife Hospital, which treats more than 3,200 injured, sick and orphaned native animals each year, guided tours of the nursery viewing window take place every day at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Guests can walk through the hospital exhibits and check out a behind-the-scenes film, patient X-rays, animal artifacts and the Jr. Vet Lab, an interactive play space where children learn how veterinarians care for animals and can role-play with native animals (of the stuffed species). The Jr. Vet Lab is open from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday. Entrance to the Conservancy is at 1495 Smith Preserve Way, just south of The Naples Zoo off Goodlette-Frank Road. Details about Kids Free Saturdays and other Conservancy educational programs, guided tours and special events are available by visiting or calling 262-0304. The touch tank in the Dalton Discovery Center is always a busy spot.


A14 NEWS WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYGetting fannies in the seatsThe Bunyadi opened in London this month for a three-month run as the worlds newest nude-dining experience, and now has a reservation waiting list of 40,000 (since it only seats 42). Besides the nakedness, the Bunyadi creates true liberation (said its founder) by serving only food from nature, cooked over fire (no electricity). Waiters are nude, as well, except for minimal concessions to seated diners addressing standing servers. Tokyos Amrita nude eatery, opening in July, is a bit more playful, with best-body male waiters and an optional floorshow and no overweight patrons allowed. Both restaurants provide some sort of derriere-cover for sitting, and require diners to check their cellphones at the door.Cultural diversityMilwaukees WITI-TV, in an on-thescene report from Loretta, Wis. (in the states northwest backwoods), in May, described the towns baffling fascination with Wood Tick Racing, held annually, provided someone finds enough wood ticks to place in a circle so that townspeople can wager on which one hops out first. The races began 37 years ago, and this year Howard was declared the winner. (According to the organizers, at the end of the day, all contestants, except Howard, were to be smashed with a mallet.)The entrepreneurial spiritBasking in its record high in venture capital funding, the Chinese Jiedaibao website put its business model into practice recently: facilitating offers of jumbo personal loans (two to five times the normal limit) to female students who submit nude photos. The student agrees that if the loan is not repaid on time (at exorbitant interest rates), the lender can release the photos online. (The business has been heavily criticized, but the companys headquarters said the privately negotiated contracts are beyond its control.) Awesome For the last 17 months, Stan Larkin, of Ypsilanti, Mich., has gone about his business (even playing pickup basketball) without a functional heart in his body carrying around in a backpack the organ that pumps his blood. Larkin, 25, was born with a dangerous heart arrhythmia, and was kept alive for a while with a defibrillator and then by hooking him up to a washingmachinesized heart pump, leaving him barely mobile but then came the miraculous SynCardia Freedom Total Artificial Heart, weighing 13 pounds and improving Larkins quality of life as he endured the almost-interminable wait for a heart transplant (which he finally received in May). (An average of 22 people a day die awaiting organ transplants in the U.S.) An ordinary green tree frog recently injured in a lawn-mowing accident in Australias Outback was flown about 600 miles from Mount Isa to the Cairns Frog Hospital. CFH president Deborah Pergolotti spoke despairingly to Australian Broadcasting Corp. News about how society under-regards the poor frogs when it comes to rescue and rehab suggesting that theres almost a glass ceiling between them and the cuter animals. News you can use: When they were starting out, the band Guns N Roses practiced and lived in a storage unit in Los Angeles, according to a book-review essay in the May 2016 Harpers magazine, and became resourceful, wrote the essayist. Wrote bass player Duff McKagan in one of the books reviewed: You could get dirt-cheap antibiotics intended for use in aquariums at pet stores. Turned out tetracycline wasnt just good for tail rot and gill disease. It also did great with syphilis.PerspectiveNews updates from Kim Jong Uns North Korea: In March, a South Korean ecology organization reported that the traditional winter migration of vultures from China was, unusually, skipping over North Korea, headed directly for the South apparently because of the paucity of animal corpses (according to reports, a major food source for millions of North Koreans). And this month, the Global Nutrition Report (which criticized the U.S. and 13 other countries for alarming obesity rates) praised North Korea for its progress in having fewer adults with body mass index over 30).Least-competent criminals Damian Shaw, 43, was sentenced in Englands Chester Crown Court this month after an April raid revealed he had established a sophisticated cannabis-growing operation (160 plants) in a building about 50 yards from the front door of the Cheshire Police headquarters.

It was in 1951, on a family vacation from Ohio to Naples and during a friendly round of golf at the hotel alongside his father, that the young Mr. Nicklaus first broke 40 over nine holes. At 11 years, just one year after he had picked up a club for the first time, he shot a 37, one over par. The scorecard from that round is archived in the Jack Nicklaus Museum on the campus of The Ohio State University. Being back to Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club is like a walk down memory lane for me, Mr. Nicklaus said recently when he visited the hotel earlier this month to check on progress of the renovation/redesign, which started in April and is on target for completion in December. The $9 million project is being done in collaboration with noted course architect John Sanford. Returning to the same course where I broke 40, with my father by my side, brings back a lot of very special and very fond memories for me. At the same time, I am enjoying the opportunity to work with John (Sanford) on this rebirth, if you will, of a wonderful layout. I think we have some great ideas and people will be excited about the end product. The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Course effort brings together two of the worlds finest designers, who just a year ago celebrated the grand opening of their collaboration on Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point in The Bronx, N.Y. Mr. Sanford served as project manager for the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course; among the many honors bestowed on the design, it was named to Golf Digests Best New Courses 2015 and recognized by Golf Magazine as the Best New Course You Can Play. The totally new, par-71 routing plan on the Naples course includes five tees, ranging from 4,800 yards to more than 6,900 yards, and incorporates a 300-yard practice and teaching range. The project also includes new golf carts equipped with GPS. The completion of this renovation will bring our golf course in line with the rest of our AAA Four-Diamond resort and enhance the overall guest and group experience, Henry B. Watkins III, a co-owner of the resort, says. The added bonus of having Mr. Nicklaus collaborate on the redesign of the course where he first broke 40 for nine holes is wonderful, and further enriches the deep history of our property. Owned and operated by the Watkins family for three generations, the resort has been part of the Naples community since 1946. For more information, call 2612222 or visit naplesbeachhotel. com.

Coupon Expires 7/31/16.Naples Bonita Springs Nonmedical use of opioids doubles in 10 yearsAlmost 10 million U.S. adults report misusing prescription opioids in 2012-2013Nonmedical use of prescription opioids more than doubled among adults in the U.S. from 2002 to 2013, based on a study from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, part of the National Institutes of Health. In 2012-2013, nearly 10 million Americans, or 4.1 percent of the adult population, used opioid medications, a class of drugs that includes OxyContin and Vicodin, without a prescription or not as prescribed (in greater amounts, more often, or longer than prescribed). This is up from 1.8 percent of the adult population in 2001-2002. More than 11 percent of Americans report nonmedical use of prescription opioids at some point in their lives, a considerable increase from 4.7 percent 10 years prior. The number of people who meet the criteria for prescription opioid addiction has substantially increased during this timeframe as well, with 2.1 million adults (0.9 percent of the U.S. adult population) reporting symptoms of nonmedical prescription opioid use disorder, according to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5). The increasing misuse of prescription opioid pain relievers poses a myriad of serious public health consequences, said Nora D. Volkow, M/D., director of the National Institute on Drug Abuse, which contributed funding for the study. These include increases in opioid use disorders and related fatalities from overdoses, as well as the rising incidence of newborns who experience neonatal abstinence syndrome. In some instances, prescription opioid misuse can progress to intravenous heroin use with consequent increases in risk for HIV, hepatitis C and other infections among individuals sharing needles. Scientists analyzed data from NIAAAs National Epidemiologic Survey on Alcohol and Related Conditions-III, ongoing research that examines alcohol and drug use disorders among the U.S. population, as well as associated mental health conditions. Prescription opioid misuse is an urgent public health problem, with drug poisoning deaths involving opioid analgesics, which includes both prescription and illicit opioids, quadrupling between 1999 and 2014, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Emergency department visits increased by 153 percent from 2004 to 2011, based on data from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administrations Drug Abuse Warning Network. Given the dramatic increase in nonmedical use of prescription opioids, it is important that clinicians and patients also recognize the potent interaction of opioids with alcohol and other sedativehypnotic drugs an interaction that can be lethal, said NIAAA Director George F. Koob, Ph.D. People who develop alcohol use disorder at some point in their lives are nearly twice as likely to also develop opioid use disorder, based on NESARC-III data. Similar to other substance use disorders, prescription opioid use disorder includes symptoms such as: Taking the drug in larger amounts or over a longer period than was intended. The persistent desire to cut down or control use/unsuccessful efforts to do so. Failure to fulfill major role obligations at work, school or home as a result of prescription opioid use. Symptoms of tolerance and/or withdrawal. Rates of nonmedical prescription opioid use were greatest among men, those with annual incomes less than $70,000, those previously married, and those with a high school-level education or less. Use was greater among whites and Native Americans and those living in the Midwest and West. Study results also show that few people misusing prescription opioids receive treatment. Based on NESARCIII data, only about 5 percent of people misusing prescription opioids in the past year and 17 percent of those with prescription opioid use disorder ever receive help. Evidence-based treatment options for addiction to prescription opioids include medications and behavioral counseling approaches. The national data from NESARC-III substantially advances what we know about prevalence, co-occurring disorders and treatment rates, said senior author Bridget Grant, Ph.D., chief of the NIAAA Laboratory of Epidemiology and Biometry. Prior to this analysis, there was a lack of current epidemiologic data on nonmedical prescription opioid use and prescription opioid use disorder using DSM-5 criteria. Overall, the study found that nonmedical prescription opioid use among U.S. adults has increased by 161 percent from 2001-2002 to 2012-2013, while prescription opioid use disorder has increased by 125 percent. The authors suggest that this may be due in part to increase in opioid prescribing and dosage, lessened perception of risk because of its legality, and lack of understanding of addictive potential. The researchers found that nonmedical prescription opioid use and prescription opioid use disorder are linked to other drug use disorders, and a variety of mental health disorders including posttraumatic stress disorder, and borderline, schizotypal and antisocial personality disorder. Persistent depression and major depressive disorder are linked to nonmedical prescription opioid use, while bipolar I disorder is linked to prescription opioid use disorder.

These approaches include a group of diverse medical and health-care systems, practices and products such as herbal supplements, meditation, chiropractic and yoga. The total spent represents 9.2 percent of all out-of-pocket spending by Americans on health care and 1.1 percent of total health-care spending. These findings come from an analysis by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, based on data from a special supplement to the 2012 National Health Interview Survey. The NHIS is conducted annually by CDCs National Center for Health Statistics. NCCIH is part of the National Institutes of Health. With so many Americans using and spending money on complementary health approaches, it is extremely important for us to provide the public with evidence-based information to help inform decisions, says Dr. Josephine Briggs, director of NCCIH. This underscores the importance of conducting rigorous research to know whether the products and practices being used are safe and effective. How much did Americans spend on different types of complementary approaches? The survey showed: $14.7 billion out-of-pocket on visits to complementary practitioners such as chiropractors, acupuncturists or massage therapists. That is almost 30 percent of what they spent out-of-pocket on services by conventional physicians. The mean annual out-of-pocket expenditure for practitioner visits was $433. $12.8 billion out-of-pocket on natural product supplements, which was about one-quarter of what they spent out-of-pocket on prescription drugs. The mean annual out-of-pocket expenditure in this category was about $368. $2.7 billion on purchases related to self-care approaches (for example, self-help materials such as books or CDs related to complementary health topics). The mean annual out-of-pocket expenditure per user was $257. As family income went up, out-ofpocket spending on complementary approaches went up significantly. The average per user out-of-pocket expenditure for complementary health approaches was $435 for people with family incomes of less than $25,000, and $590 for those with family incomes of $100,000 or more. Out-of-pocket expenditures for visits to complementary practitioners averaged $314 for people with family incomes of less than $25,000 and $518 for those with family incomes of $100,000 or more.

Make this your summer of awakeningHaving trouble staying anchored in the midst of daily living, Election 2016 and global tensions? Perhaps you can find an oasis in a meditation spiritual intensive program based on the teachings of Eckhart Tolle (The Power of Now and The Art of Presence). Registration is open for a four-week session that runs Thursday evenings, July 14-Aug. 4, at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greater Naples. The Journey of Awakening is facilitated by Naples resident Linda Allen and managed by Donna Carty. A student of Mr. Tolle for 13 years, Ms. Allen has led intensives in Wisconsin for several years and in Naples since mid-2013. She has been a student of the ancient wisdom teachings and great spiritual leaders and a practitioner of meditation for more than 40 years and blends these teachings in her own way to help others embrace awareness and presence to overcome challenges and bring deep joy into in their daily lives. Each session of The Journey of Awakening will begin with a guided meditation and will be followed by viewing a portion of a DVD of Mr. Tolles presentation in Belfast, Ireland, in which he opens his audience to the mystery of consciousness and encourages a shifting away from the deeply engrained assumption that there is something more important than this moment. The Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Greater Naples is at 6340 Napa Woods Way. The summer sessions meet from 6:30-8 p.m. Cost is $30 for all four sessions, and participation is limited to the first 50 people who sign up by July 8. No walk-ins will be accepted. To register, send a check made payable to Ms. Carty to: 1725 Supreme Court, Naples, FL 34110. Include you name as well as an email address and phone number.

PET TALESAnimal minds: The search for intelligence in other species BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickI recently flew to Mongolia for a 20-day expedition to the Gobi Desert, Hustai National Park and places in between. One of my companions on the 20-hour flight, plus the five days it took to drive to the Gobi from Ulaanbaatar, was ethologist Frans de Waal not in person, but in the form of his new book, Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are? Looking at the science regarding the intelligence of apes, corvids (crows and ravens), dogs and more, primatologist de Waal, a professor at Emory University in Atlanta, reviews the evidence for animal cognition. There is plenty of it, but only recently has the idea of animal cognition been taken seriously. In the past, he writes, the dominant schools of thought argued that animals were either stimulus-response machines out to obtain rewards and avoid punishment, or robots genetically endowed with useful instincts. De Waal is in favor of a third premise: Intelligence comes in different forms, with animal minds possessing a complexity that has long gone unrecognized. It has been within only the past two decades that researchers became bold enough, or curious enough, to move beyond the idea that animals could not have intentions, emotions or cognition. To credit them with such abilities was considered anthropomorphic, romantic or unscientific (and still is by some). In fact, he writes, the term animal cognition was considered an oxymoron until well into the 1980s. If you live with a dog, cat, bird or other animal, you are probably rolling your eyes and thinking, Of course animals have emotions and intelligence. And you would be correct. Their cognitive abilities might not be exactly the same as those of humans, but they are similar in any number of ways, or they simply take a different form that allows a particular animal to navigate his world in a way that would be impossible for humans. While many of de Waals examples focus on apes and corvids, dogs dont go unremarked upon. In Chapter 4, Talk to Me, on communication, de Waal discusses the advantages of working with an animal intentionally bred by our species to get along with us. Of course, he means the dog. Dogs eagerly pay attention to us and need little encouragement to work on the tasks that we present to them, he writes. No wonder dognition is an up-andcoming field. He visits Emory colleague Gregory Berns to see dogs Eli and Callie demonstrate their prowess at sitting still in an MRI machine for brain imaging. Hand signals inform the dogs that a treat is on the way, allowing Berns to visualize activation of their pleasure center. The finding? The prospect of food lights up a dogs brain in the same way and location that anticipation of a bonus lights up the brain of a hedge fund manager. De Waals book is a fascinating peek into the minds of our fellow beings, whose cognitive abilities may be best described by naturalist Henry Beston: In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with the extension of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings: they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth. For other new books that address animal intelligence, see Jennifer Ackermans The Genius of Birds; Jonathan Balcombes What a Fish Knows; and Bernd Heinrichs One Wild Bird at a Time: Portraits of Individual Lives.

Actually, the tweens have been all over the social media phenom since it came out back in 2011. Im just now getting around to it. First I had to master Facebook, Linkedin, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter OK, full disclosure, Im not going to lie I still havent figured out Linkedin. Im totally stymied by it I mean, whats the point? Its not fun, its not even interesting, and Ive yet to figure out what were all accomplishing by being on Linkedin. Seriously, show of hands: Has anyone significantly benefited from Linkedin? I didnt think so. SnapChat, however, is loads of fun and provides hours of mirth and escapism from the day-to-day grind. Feeling down over current events, or the presidential election or the relentless Southwest Florida summertime heat and humidity? Turn to SnapChat! In a nutshell, SnapChat allows you to share photos or videos with your friends that last up to 10 seconds and then disappear FOREVER (disclaimer: Does anything in cyberspace REALLY ever disappear forever? I dont think so.) At first, like Linkedin, I really didnt understand the point at all, but then my friend Asha explained how I could reverse my iPhone camera into selfie mode and find all these silly faces to morph over my already silly face, like a cartoonish looking dog with a really long tongue; or me, with a weirdly distorted forehead; or a cat which raises its paws whenever I raise my eyebrows. I know its hard to describe, but SO entertaining trust me. Its almost solely how Asha and I communicate these days; we send each other 10 second snaps where were funny pandas or talking bananas and we chat about our plans for the day. Its much more festive than texting. The only problem Ive encountered thus far with SnapChat has to do with why its mostly appealing to 13-year-olds. Im not comfortable with using the frontfacing camera on my iPhone this much and even though my features are transformed into zombies or bunny rabbits and such, Im noticing now more than ever that I seriously need to look into Botox. While Im whiling away hours and finding myself hilarious on SnapChat (when I should be doing laundry or cleaning out my car), Im also realizing why SnapChat wasnt designed for humans over the age of 40-ish (or somewhat more). That front-facing camera can be brutal and yet, so can a Botox needle. Ive never tried Botox, but then again, up until a few weeks ago, Id never tried SnapChat either. Im just wondering like SnapChat, does the Botox also have a limited shelf life before the results disappear forever? I think Ill just stick to SnapChat and overlook the crows feet Im sure there are lots of silly bunnies with a few laugh lines around their whiskers. Ciao for now, my lovelies!

Floridas total share this year across 67 counties was $5,334,721 for 2,545,722 acres of land to compensate local governments for their support of national parks, wildlife refuges and other public lands and waters as they forego property taxes due to nontaxable federal land in their jurisdictions. Collier County got the largest portion $1,330,802 for 511,767 acres. Federally owned lands in Collier include Big Cypress National Preserve, Everglades National Park, the Florida Panther National Wildlife Refuge, Rookery Bay National Estaurine Research Reserve and Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge. The county receives the funds, deposits them in the general fund and they are used for public safety purposes, including Collier County Sheriffs Office and Ochopee Fire Control, wrote Collier public information coordinator Kate Albers, in an email. Lee County got $63,428 for the 201617 fiscal year for land that includes J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, Matlacha Pass NWR and Pine Island NWR. Lee also will receive a second payment of $3,759 for 1,449 acres including National Park System and National Forest Wilderness areas. The money this year was split between the Lee County General Fund, the School District, city of Sanibel, Mosquito Control and West Coast Inland Navigation District. Other counties set to receive the most money include Monroe ($1,180,195 for 454,861 acres), Dade ($897,730 for 344,345 acres), and Marion ($419,911 for 276,217 acres). Some governments, including Broward, Palm Beach, DeSoto, Hendry and Charlotte counties received $0. The PILT program does not compensate for all federal land. Its eligibility is reserved for local governments (mostly rural counties) that provide significant support for national conservation and recreation areas throughout the year. The presidents fiscal year 2017 budget proposes to return the PILT program to mandatory funding at $480 million annually, the Interior Department said, which would ensure funding stability for the program and local communities year after year. These investments are one of the ways the federal government can fulfill its role of being a good neighbor to local communities, said Secretary Jewell. President Obama has made job creation and opportunity in rural areas a top priority for his Administration and has fought for continuing the PILT program. We encourage Congress to take the required action to make sure this important program continues. Using a formula provided by statute, the annual PILT payments to local governments are computed based on the number of acres of federal land and the population within each county or jurisdiction. The lands include the National Forest and National Park Systems, lands in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Refuge System, areas managed by the Bureau of Land Management, areas managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Bureau of Reclamation water resource development projects, and others. The Interior Department collects more than $11 billion in revenue annually from commercial activities on public lands, such as oil and gas leasing, livestock grazing and timber harvesting. A portion of these revenues is shared with states and counties. The balance is deposited in the U.S. Treasury, which in turn pays for a broad array of federal activities, including PILT funding. Since PILT payments began in 1977, Interior has distributed more than $7.5 billion. Staff Writer Evan Williams contributed to this report.PILTFrom page 1Consumer sentiment among Floridians dropped again in June to 89, one point down from Mays revised reading and tied with September 2015 for the lowest reading in the last 18 months, according to the latest University of Florida consumer survey. Of the five components that make up the index, three decreased and two increased. Perceptions of ones personal financial situation now compared with a year ago showed the sharpest drop, falling 3.5 points from 85.5 to 82.0. This decline was shared by all Floridians except those with income above $50,000, whose reading rose 4.3 points. In contrast, those with annual incomes under $50,000 dropped 7.4 points from last month. Opinions as to whether now is a good time to buy a big-ticket item such as an automobile went up slightly, from 94.2 to 95.4, but again the perceptions of those with income below $50,000 went down. The trend of these two components together over the past three months indicates that perceptions of current economic conditions have deteriorated among Floridians, but this pessimistic sentiment started a month earlier for those with annual incomes under $50,000, said Hector H. Sandoval, director of the Economic Analysis Program at UFs Bureau of Economic and Business Research. Expectations of personal finances a year from now were also down slightly, from 102.5 to 101.7. Views of the future national economy were mixed: Expectations of U.S. economic conditions over the next year rose half a point to 83.4, while expectations of U.S. economic conditions over the next five years decreased 2.3 points, from 84.9 to 82.6. Florida consumer sentiment is suffering a three-month decline even as some economic indicators are positive. According to the latest report from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, Floridas state Gross Domestic Product ranked fifth in the nation for the fourth quarter of 2015. Floridas unemployment rate declined again in May, dropping onetenth of a percentage point to 4.7 percent. The number of jobs added in May statewide was 253,900, a 3.2 percent increase compared with last year. Floridas economy is growing, with more jobs added every month for 70 consecutive months. While the decline in the sentiment index was marginal, its worth noting that this is the third straight month of declines, said Christopher McCarty, director of UFs Bureau of Economic and Business Research. The national and international context may contribute to further declines over the next few months. As the campaigns for U.S. president get in full swing, its not unusual to see drops in sentiment as consumers hear negative economic opinions and anticipate what each candidate might do. Mr. McCarty also pointed to potential challenges in the months ahead. There are lingering problems with weak wage growth and lower-thanexpected inflation, reflecting tepid demand, Mr. McCarty said. Internationally, many economies, such as Europe and Japan, are struggling with very low inflation and addressing it through negative interest rates. Conducted June 1-20, the UF study reflects the responses of 406 individuals who were reached on cellphones, representing a demographic cross-section of Florida. The index used by UF researchers is benchmarked to 1966, which means a value of 100 represents the same level of confidence for that year. The lowest index possible is a 2, the highest is 150.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2016 BUSINESS B5 MONEY & INVESTINGTough banking regulations will slow economic growthBanking these days is a tough business to be in. What other industry is there in the world where the government mandates that you take a significant portion of your inventory and hold it in storage for a rainy day? I mean can you imagine if the same paradigm was applied to Starbucks? Sorry, Mr. CEO of Starbucks, but the federal government is very concerned about what would happen if suddenly an alien ship appeared above earth and its occupants decided that they were really jonesing for some java and stole all of the coffee beans on earth. So we are mandating that every third cup of coffee you make you pour into a tube that funnels it to a strategic coffee reserve placed near the center of the earth to keep it at the perfect scalding temperature. And no, we are not going to pay you for that coffee as we are just holding it in a reserve on your behalf and wont you be happy you have it there as little green men are enjoying their cup of Joe? This is the exact scenario that banks face every day. For every dollar of capital they have (which for a bank is their inventory that they sell to borrowers), the government mandates that they set aside a percentage of it at the Fed in case bad things happen. These reserve requirements are what have kept our banking system stable for decades up until the financial crisis in 2008 when it was learned that these reserves were no match for investment bankers, securitization and real estate lending. So in the aftermath of the government bailouts of the banks, the government decided to play the fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me game and wanted to make sure that banks wouldnt require a bailout in the future. One of the ways they thought to accomplish this was to make sure that no matter what happens in the future, banks would have plenty of capital to survive. The economy goes into recession, check. Inflation skyrockets, check. Unemployment soars, check. Yield curve undergoes dramatic shift, check. Justin Bieber elected as president as the first third party candidate in history, check. I think everyone agrees that these stress tests are completely appropriate given the recent government bailouts. What is frustrating for banks is that the Fed is consistently moving the goal posts on them. Each years test assumes more dramatic economic disasters and requires banks to hold even more capital buffer against these calamities. And banks are responding by amassing huge capital reserves in fear of not passing. In fact, just last week the largest 33 banks in the U.S. passed their Fed stress tests with flying colors to the relief of bank investors. So what is wrong with having banks reserve more capital against a possible recession? After all, who wants another bank crisis and bailout? To answer this question lets go back to our hypothetical Starbucks scenario. If the coffee company couldnt sell every third cup of coffee that it brewed, what is the likelihood it would open many new stores? Unless the new location was going to be a huge moneymaker, the company probably would not. Well, that scenario is affecting banks large and small across the country right now. With banks under onerous new regulations, significant reserve requirements, and the high probability that requirements will be even higher going forward, what is the incentive for banks to enter new markets? What is the motivation to develop new products? Or approve a marginal loan? A thriving banking sector is critical for a strong economy and many believe that the government is suffocating this part of the economy. So while many are cheering the fact that the largest banks passed their recent stress tests last week, I believe that the banking sector will continue to be under pressure in the years to come as the flat yield curve, harsh regulations and increasing reserve requirements take their toll. This is bad obviously for bank stocks but will slow general economic growth as well.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Understanding Credit ScoresIts important to understand the role of your credit record and credit score in your life because a poor credit profile can cost you thousands of dollars. Lenders, insurance companies, potential landlords and others can use your credit score to determine rates theyll charge you and/or whether they even want to do business with you. Utility companies can base the deposits they require from you on your credit score, and even potential employers may want to look at your credit report. Heres what you need to know: There are three main creditreporting agencies Equifax (, Experian ( and TransUnion ( Each calculates its credit scores a little differently. Some lenders look at only one of the bureaus scores, some look at all of them and take the average, some look at all and take the best and some take the worst. When you hear of your FICO score, it refers to the score developed by Fair Isaac Corp. that most lenders check. Its available via the website. One reason for big differences in credit reports and scores between agencies is that they dont all collect the same information. Some lenders may report your credit activity to one agency, but not another. There may also be a serious error on one agencys report, affecting its score. Also relevant is the timing of when in the credit cycle your score is calculated. Lenders typically report the last amount you were billed as your current balance. If your reported credit-card balance is very low, then your debt-to-availablecredit ratio is going to be low, too, helping your score. Large balances can depress your score. By law, youre entitled to a free copy of your credit report from each bureau annually. You can get them all easily via Its worth checking your reports at least once a year, looking for any errors and getting them fixed. Paying bills on time and being responsible about credit will give you a better credit score, which could save you a lot of money. My Dumbest SaleI bought shares of True Religion Apparel at $6 per share and decided to sell if it reached $25 which I did. It went all the way up to $36 per share, so I was mad at myself for having reaped a smaller profit than I could have. However, I cant find it at all now, so I guess selling at $25 wasnt such a bad thing to do. I was a newbie investor then, and the newsletters that I read said that its important to establish a sell point and stick to it. B.B., onlineThe Fool Responds: You cant find True Religion in the stock listings anymore because the company was bought out by the TowerBrook Capital Partners limited partnership in 2013 for about $824 million. Instead of kicking yourself for selling, ask yourself what your assessment of True Religions value was at the time. If you didnt think the shares were overvalued at $25, when you sold them, and you believed that the company would keep growing by selling jeans for $300 and more, then hanging on would have been reasonable. If you had doubts, then selling was smart. Dont pick a sell price like $25 randomly. Try to have a handle on the companys value. True Religion was actually ailing, which is why it sought a buyer. Remember that fashions regularly go out of style. Brewing ProfitsAfter a rough 2015 and further weakness so far this year, Boston Beers (NYSE: SAM) shares have fallen far from their alltime highs of January 2015. Slowing sales of the companys core Sam Adams-brand beer and multiple analyst downgrades have skunked the stock, presenting an attractive buying opportunity for longterm investors interested in a high-quality business trading at a bargain price.The popularity of its Sam Adams line of beers has allowed Boston Beer to build a powerful distribution system, with shelf and tap space for its newest products. Thats helped its Angry Orchard become the top-selling brand in the fast-growing hard cider category and should also help spur adoption of its new hard soda drinks and nitro beers. But competition has been intensifying within the craft brew arena, with industry behemoths snapping up promising craft brewers and new brewers continuing to spring up. (More than 4,000 now operate in the U.S., according to the Brewers Association.)This competition has taken a toll on Boston Beers results in recent months, with core shipment volume falling 6 percent year over year to 830,000 barrels in the first quarter. Its Alchemy and Science craft beer incubator has been driving new growth, though, with further growth expected. With its popular brands, strong distribution system and innovative culture, Boston Beer is worth considering for your portfolio. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended Boston Beer.) 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? (Answer: FedEx) Burn RatesQWhats a companys burn rate? B.C., Santa Rosa, CaliforniaAIts a measure that reflects how quickly a company is burning through its cash. You neednt worry about it with most established companies, but it can be worth checking the burn rates of smaller, fast-growing or shakier companies. Imagine, for example, that in its most recent quarterly report, Spray-on Socks Co. (ticker: PFFFT) reported negative $50 million in free cash flow, as its cash balance fell to $100 million from $150 million. Its not unusual for companies to lose money in their early years, but burning through money too rapidly is also what puts many of them out of business. In PFFFTs case, at its current burn rate of $50 million per quarter, it will run out of cash in just a few quarters. To stay alive, it will have to cut spending (which could slow its growth) or find more money (perhaps taking on debt or issuing additional stock, which can hurt existing shareholders). ***QWhat is the Federal Reserve, and what does it do? W.T., Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylv aniaAFounded by Congress in 1913 and often referred to as the Fed, its the central bank of the United States.

B12 REAL ESTATE WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYKenny Rogers Georgia dream home goes on the auction block TOPTENREALESTATEDEALS.COMAmericas favorite Gamblers career has spanned over half a century and is still going strong for his farewell tour, The Gamblers Last Deal, scheduled to run into next year. Kenny Rogers, 77, is retiring after performances covering the United States, Ireland, Philippines, Thailand and the United Kingdom. After a career that began in the 1950s as a teen rocker and continued as a folk singer in the s, hes folding his cards as one of the best-selling country musicians of all time. Beaver Dam Farms, Mr. Rogers former estate on 973 acres just outside of Athens, Ga., and 90 minutes from Atlanta, goes up for auction on July 9. Conceived, designed and built by Mr. Rogers as his dream home, the property consists of three private spring-fed lakes, a 12,000-square-foot main residence, five guesthouses, a clubhouse, a lake clubhouse, two swimming pools, two clay tennis courts, an 18-hole championship-rated golf course and a 2-plusacre equestrian/multipurpose arena with 44 stalls. Other details include streams with waterfalls, woodland trails for walking or riding, gardens, two gyms, a theater, billiards room, conference center and a total of 20 bedrooms. Mr. Rogers sold the property in 2003 to Weston Adams, who also owned a guest ranch and sportsmans lodge in Colorado. The Adams family used Beaver Dam Farm as a private home in the first years and then turned it into a resort with full accommodations, spa services and event rentals. Mr. Adams died in 2011, and the family moved to the West Coast. Previously listed at $20 million and with a replacement value of $30 to $40 million, the estate will go to the highest bidder at or above $3.5 million with all furnishings included, many of which were those passed on by the original owner.

NAR survey shows student loan debt hurting the market NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSSeventy-one percent of non-homeowners repaying their student loans on time believe their debt is stymieing their ability to purchase a home, and slightly more than half of all borrowers say they expect to be delayed from buying by more than five years. This is according to a new joint survey on student loan debt and housing by the National Association of Realtors and SALT, a consumer literacy program provided by nonprofit American Student Assistance. The results also reveal that student debt postponed 4 in 10 borrowers from moving out of a family members household after graduating college. Nearly three-quarters of non-homeowners polled in the survey believe their student loan debt is delaying them from buying a home. Broken down by each generation and debt amount, the percent share is the highest 79 percent among older millennials (ages 26-35) and those with $70,000 to $100,000 in total debt. Regardless of the outright amount of student debt, more than half of non-homeowners in each generation report that its postponing their ability to buy. The survey, which only polled student debt holders current in their repayment, yielded responses from borrowers with varying amounts of debt from mostly a fouryear public or private college. Forty-three percent of those polled had between $10,001 and $40,000 in student debt, while 38 percent had $50,000 or more. The most common debt amount was $20,000 to $30,000. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says the survey findings bring to light the magnitude student debt is having on the housing market and the budget of even those financially able to make on-time payments. While obtaining a college degree increases the likelihood of stable employment and earning enough to buy a home, many graduating with this debt are putting homeownership on the backburner in part because of the multiple years it takes to pay off their student loans at an interest rate thats oftentimes nearly double current mortgage rates. A majority of non-homeowners in the survey earning more than $50,000 a year which is above the median U.S. qualifying income needed to buy a single-family home reported that student debt is hurting their ability to save for a down payment. Along with rent, a car payment and other large monthly expenses that can squeeze a households budget, paying a few hundred dollars every month on a student loan equates to thousands of dollars over several years that could otherwise go towards saving for a home purchase, Mr. Yun says. Among non-homeowners who believe student debt is delaying their ability to buy, over three-quarters including over 80 percent of millennials said their delay is because they cant save for a down payment. Additionally, 69 percent dont feel financially secure enough to buy, and 63 percent cant qualify for a mortgage because of high debtto-income ratios. A little over a majority of those polled, 52 percent, expect to be delayed by more than five years from purchasing a home because of repaying their student debt. One in five anticipates being held back three to five years. Not surprisingly, those with higher amounts of student loan debt and those with lower incomes expect to be delayed the longest. Realtors work closely with our clients and consumers everyday; we understand the severity of the problem, says Sherri Meadows, NAR vice president and a Realtor in Ocala. This is not an abstract issue for us. This is why Realtors are leading the real estate industry in the discussion of student loan debt and its impact on housing by generating the most encompassing research on this topic. Mirroring other recent data on young Americans being more likely to live with their parents than in any other living situations, almost half, 46 percent, of young millennials polled currently live with family (both paying and not paying rent). Furthermore, 42 percent of respondents indicated student debt delayed their decision to move out of their family members home after college. Highlighting the difficulty many college graduates faced finding employment either before or immediately after the Great Recession, those who graduated six to 10 years ago had the longest delay, with 33 percent saying it took more than two years to move out of a family home. Nearly three-quarters of older millennials, many of whom graduated at the peak or immediately after the downturn, said their ability to purchase a home is affected by student debt, Mr. Yun says. Add in the detrimental effects of low inventory as well as rents and home price growth outpacing wages, and its mainly why the share of firsttime buyers remains at its lowest point in nearly three decades. The survey also found that student debt is affecting overall housing supply by holding back some current homeowners who otherwise would like to sell. Nearly a third of current homeowners, 31 percent, said their student debt is postponing them from selling their home and purchasing a new one. Of those, 18 percent believe it is too expensive to move and upgrade to a new home, 7 percent have problems with their credit caused by student loan debt, and 6 percent are underwater because student debt has limited their ability to pay more than the minimum payment on their mortgage. It is imperative to the nations economy that we find immediate and practical solutions to financially empower the 43 million Americans with student debt, John Zurick, president of SALT, says, adding the organization is committed to demystifying the college financing process by giving consumers information, instruction and individualized advice. No one should fail to realize the full potential of their formal education simply because of finances, Mr. Zurick adds. We invite the higher education community, the U.S. government, the private sector and others to join with us in this movement. In April, SALT distributed a 33-question survey co-written with NAR to 75,000 student loan borrowers who are current in repayment; 3,230 borrowers completed the survey. All information is characteristic of April, with the exception of income data, which is reflective of 2015. COURTESY PHOTOLawrence Un, NAR chief economist, and Sherri Meadows, NAR vice president, say there should be a plan to help those with student debt who cannot afford to buy homes.

C2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY FLORIDA WRITERSThe complex key to the present lies in the past of the Vietnam War Someone Must Die by Sharon Potts. Thomas & Mercer. 380 pages. Trade paperback, $15.95; Kindle ebook, $3.99. A bone-chilling thriller with a strong sense of how history shapes peoples lives, Someone Must Die also probes deeply into the workings of family dynamics. Writer Sharon Potts main character, Aubrey Lynd, is a Ph.D. candidate in social psychology. We meet her at home in Rhode Island where she is dealing with the harsh ending of a six-year relationship. Her boyfriend, she has just discovered, has been a serial cheater. Her confidence shaken not only by her boyfriends behavior but also by her blindness to it, Aubrey soon receives more bad news. Her 6-year-old nephew, Ethan, has been abducted. This is not the kind of return home to Miami that Aubrey needs, but she must comfort her mother, Diana, who had taken her grandson to the carnival where the abduction took place. Diana had only recently been reunited with her son Kevins family, and this apparent show of irresponsibility only turns him against her and back into the embrace of his wifes parents. Diana is heartbroken. After the combined police and FBI investigation begins, we learn the motive for the abduction: Someone leaves a note for Diana saying that Ethan will be returned if she kills Jonathan Woodward. Jonathan, who is being considered for a Supreme Court vacancy, is Dianas significant other. Diana is given a deadline by which she must provide proof of Jonathans death. If she contacts the authorities or misses the deadline, Ethan will die. In other words, she is put in a trap: Someone must die Ethan or Jonathan. The fact that a child had died under her care when Diana was a practicing physician only complicates her emotional situation. At first, she keeps the note a secret, but it doesnt stay secret. Aubrey plays an important role in the investigation, using her own training to influence the actions and perceptions of FBI Special Agent Smolleck and Detective Gonzalez of the Miami-Dade police. The authors portrait of Diana splendidly captures her despairing sense of guilt. It may be that she is the actual target that someone has chosen to torture her. But who? And why? As with Ms. Potts earlier novels, the key to the present lies in the past in this case, to a time before Aubrey and Kevin were born. During 1969-70, at the height of protest against the Vietnam War and government repression, Diana (then Di) and her future husband Larry where student activists at Columbia University. The exciting protest events in which they participated, their aspirations, their circle of friends, popular culture the entire zeitgeist is brought to readers through a magnificent representation of Dianas memories in boldface, san serif type. The narrative, then, shuttles between the two timelines. The truth about the earlier timeline, with scenes of violent demonstrations and both desired and unintended deaths, must be revealed in order to forestall the ticking time bomb that will otherwise end young Ethans life and ruin the lives of all who love him. Ms. Potts shows her true writers genius in working out the complex plot details, particularly the pacing, dimensions and impact of background revelations. People close to Aubrey have kept secrets for longer than her lifetime, and those secrets must come to light, present pain and shame notwithstanding. Aubreys tentative and partial reconciliation with her father and questions about his second wife push readers into considerations that penetrate the fog of time, denial and fear. Is it possible not to know the most important things about the people closest to you? Someone Must Die is in large part based on this premise. Such questions are on the mind of Aubrey and several other characters in this magnetic, stirring novel in which Ms. Potts dives deep into her characters minds and emotions and then turns her findings into psychological thriller gold. About the authorSharon Potts is the award-winning, critically acclaimed author of four psychological thrillers, including In Their Blood, winner of the Benjamin Franklin Award and recipient of a starred review in Publishers Weekly. A former CPA, corporate executive and entrepreneur, she has served as treasurer of the national board of Mystery Writers of America, as well as president of that organizations Florida chapter. She has also co-chaired SleuthFest, a national writers conference. She lives in Miami Beach with her husband and a spirited Australian shepherd named Gidget. 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.

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYBut dont go expecting to see propaganda. I think people will be surprised, Ms. Meek says. Theyll either think its going to be very blatant patriotic work or paintings of flags. There are some paintings with flags in them, she allows, But theyre not the main subject. The exhibit, which consists of 65 works by 21 artists, includes oils, acrylics, watercolors and one pastel. There are also sculptures. We really had fun putting together the show, she says. We decided to choose paintings that were red, white and blue. Or just all red or all white or all blue. Then we chose paintings that had patriotic images in them. Theres also a series of paintings of WWII airplanes done by photorealist painter John Baeder. And Ms. Meek picked several paintings of places across America: Hawaii, Alaska, Maine, the bayous of Louisiana. There are farm scenes of the Midwest and scenes of out West, she says. Scenes of New York City as well. Not only was Patriotic Paintings fun to put together, she says, it showcases the artists represented by the gallery. The exhibit includes abstract, realistic, impressionist and expressionist works. Its really a broad brush of many different artists painting different styles and different subjects, but all under the umbrella of Patriotic Paintings, she says. Artists in the exhibit include: John Baeder, Will Barnet, Ellie Barnet, Timothy Clark, David Coolidge, Adolf Dehn, Jimmy Ernst, William Entrekin, John Falato, Robert Natkin, Eliot OHara, Richard Segalman, Hunt Slonem and Jessica Daryl Winer. Mr. Ernsts Mostly White is an allwhite abstract. He did a series of white-on-white paintings, Ms. Meek says. He did that because he didnt want his work to be photographed. This was in the 1960s and 0s, she explains, and it wouldve been hard to photograph. Of course, today a camera can pick up the nuances of white on white. In addition to Mr. Baeders newer works depicting vintage planes, several of his paintings of diners are included. The mark of a good artist, Ms. Meek says, is someone who explores something new and different as a way to challenge themselves and grow. In moving from diners to vintage airplanes, Mr. Baeder has taken a totally new direction, she says. It makes him excited to do something new and challenge himself in that way. The exhibit also boasts three portraits of Abraham Lincoln done by Mr. Slonem, who Ms. Meek says is the HarmonMeek|moderns most internationally wellknown artist and one of few artists who are popular both commercially and with museums. Hes in more than 150 museum collections, she says. Mr. Slonem was part of Andy Warhols Factory. He took a lot of tips from that artist, one of them being how to walk that line between the commercial world and the museum world, says Ms. Meek. He scratches into the surface of the paint using the opposite end of his brush that hes whittled down to a point. He does it all by hand. He has to know how dry the oil paint is. He paints very thick, lots of layers. (And with the scratching,) hes trying to bring up the under layers of the oil. When he scratches in, he has to feel how wet or dry the oil is to get the right texture. Ms. Meek refuses to name a favorite painting. When I pick out a show, every single painting is my favorite, she says, explaining that she visits the artists studios to choose the paintings. Every painting is one that I would love to have in my own collection.

C8 WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY LIFELONG CARE FOR DENTAL RESTORATIONSWhether dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, and veneers are supported by natural teeth or implants, they require lifelong care. Newly revised guidelines recommend that patients with dental restorations visit their dentists at least every six months so that the dentist and/or hygienist can clean, adjust, repair, or replace their restorations. e dental team can also advise patients with dental restorations about home maintenance. Dental restorations made of composite materials, metal alloys, porcelain, plastic, and other manmade materials collect dental plaque (the sticky bacterial lm that constantly forms on the teeth) that must be removed with daily brushing and ossing. Otherwise, these colonies of germs will harden into tartar, compromise restorations, and threaten gum and bone health. We are committed to excellence in the elds of cosmetic and restorative dentistry. We work with our patients so they can achieve and maintain a beautiful smile and healthier gums and teeth. If problems are diagnosed and addressed early on, teeth can oen be saved. We are currently accepting new patients. Please call us to schedule an appointment. George M.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY offer a loopy look at myriad, disparate things named The Americans. Or America. Or even Amerika. The Americans the TV series The Americans is a clever and complex FX cable series about Elizabeth and Philip, a couple of Russian spies (Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys) living in the suburbs of Virginia, just north of Washington, D.C., during the Cold War in the 1980s. Not even their children nor the FBI agent living next door suspect. An uncommonly good TV series marked by intelligent writing and deft acting, its now in its fourth season. Its creator, Joe Weisberg, told Slate that the show at its core is a marriage story. International relations is just an allegory for the human relations, Mr. Weisberg was quoted. Sometimes, when youre struggling in your marriage or with your kid, it feels like life or death. For Philip and Elizabeth, it often is. Mr. Weisberg, who previously worked for the CIA, says the company accidentally gave him the idea for the series: When he was taking a polygraph test as part of his entrance exams, they asked him, Are you joining the CIA in order to gain experience about the intelligence community so that you can write about it later? Mr. Weisberg says the idea had never even occurred to him until the CIA posed that question. The Americans the book of photographs Originally published in 1958, The Americans is a groundbreaking book of photographs by Robert Frank. With aid of a Guggenheim Fellowship, Mr. Frank traveled around the U.S. for two years, taking 28,000 photographs of Americans in cities in Michigan, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Texas, California, Nevada, Utah, Montana and Illinois. His images were considered controversial because they deviated from the photographic norms of the time. Beat writer Jack Kerouac wrote an introduction for the U.S. edition of The Americans. According to The Guardian newspaper, Mr. Franks book Changed the nature of photography, what it could say and how it could say it It remains perhaps the most influential photography book of the 20th century. In 2009, Mr. Franks photos from The Americans were displayed at the National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The Americans the novel The Americans is the last title in Jake Jones Kent Family Chronicles, a collection of historical novels. This 1979 book was preceded by The Bastard, The Rebels, The Seekers, The Furies, The Titans, The Warriors and The Lawless. Mr. Jones then wrote his North and South trilogy. The American the movie A 2010 movie starring George Clooney, The American is based on Martin Booths 1990 novel A Very Private Gentleman. Parts of the dialogue are also taken from Graham Greenes novel The Honorary Consul. The late Roger Ebert gave it four stars, calling it gripping. Leonard Maltin described the film as short on dialogue and action and long on atmosphere. But then again, it stars George Clooney. The Quiet American the novel Based on British author Graham Greenes experiences as a war correspondent in French Indochina during the early 1950s, The Quiet American looks at American involvement in Vietnam during that time. The novel was adapted into film in 1958 and 2002. The Quiet American musical duo The Quiet American is a husband-andwife duo, Aaron and Nicole Keim, who play folk music that, according to their website, incorporates traditional ballads, banjo breakdowns, raggy choruses, gospel duets and other dusty American gems The Quiet American reminds you why homemade, hand-crafted, American folk music will never fade away. In addition to harmonizing together, the two play mandolin, ukulele, banjo, guitar and accordion. America t he band This 1970s trio had hits including Horse With No Name, Ventura Highway, Sister Golden Hair, Lonely People and Tin Man. Ironically, the musicians met in high school in London, England, as their fathers were all in the U.S. Air Force, stationed nearby. (They explained in a Los Angeles Times article that they named themselves America because they didnt want people to think they were British musicians trying to sound American.) They sang folkinfused slow to mid-tempo songs with three-part-harmony. It is, unfortunately, America who first recorded and unleashed Muskrat Love on the world. The Captain and Tennille released a cover of it in 1976; it became a Top 10 hit (and an annoying earworm for the rest of us). Some America trivia: In 2001, Janet Jackson used a sample of a guitar riff from Americas Ventura Highway in her song Someone to Call My Lover. And at least a dozen of the groups albums begin with the letter H. Amerika the mini-series This 1987 mini-series stars Kris Kristoffersen, Sam Neill, Robert Urich, Mariel Hemingway and Christine Lahti. The 14-hour series, aired over seven nights, looks at an imaginary America 10 years after its been taken over by the Soviet Union. Ironically, although part of the series was filmed in Nebraska, it was also filmed in three different cities in Ontario, Canada. Amerika by Franz Kafka Amerika is Franz Kafkas incomplete first novel that was published after his death. Its said that Kafka referred to it as his American novel. It tells the bizarre story of a 16-year-old European immigrant who escapes to New York and eventually winds up in Oklahoma, tempted by an ad for the Nature Theatre of Oklahoma. America Ferrera the actress Youd be forgiven for thinking America Ferrera was named after the country, or trio of countries. But she was most likely named after her mother, who was from Honduras. Initially, Ms. Ferrera didnt like her first name and went by her middle name, Georgia, until she began acting professionally. America Ferrera portrayed Betty Suarez in the ABC TV series Ugly Betty and is now a regular and a co-producer in the NBC sitcom Superstore. But prior to all that, when she was 18, she had her first movie role in the 2002 film Real Women Have Curves. She has also appeared in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie and its sequel. Captain America in the comics This comic book character dresses in red, white and blue and carries a giant, red-and-white shield that almost looks as if he borrowed the Target logo. Hes the only superhero were aware of who wears a giant A on his forehead, as if hes Hester Prynne. American Photographs the iconic book Along with Mom and apple pie, Walker Evans black-and-white photographs are quintessentially American. American Photographs is an iconic book, originally printed in 1938. Its landmark photos were shot during the 1930s and capture America at the time: Model Ts and subway scenes, white clapboard churches and roadside stands, cemeteries and garages. American Rhapsody: Writers, Musicians, Movie Stars, and One Great Building the new book Claudia Roth Pierponts just-released book, American Rhapsody: Writers, Musicians, Movie Stars, and One Great Building, examines the American spirit in 12 essays. Each one is a literary portrait of a book, film, song or building that has made our American culture what it is. Writers include Edith Wharton, James Baldwin and Dashiell Hammett. Movie stars include Orson Welles, Marlon Brando and Katharine Hepburn. As for the musicians, she writes about Nina Simone and George Gershwin. The one great building? The Chrysler Building, of course. An American in Paris the movie The 1951 film inspired by George Gershwins 1928 orchestral composition of the same name, An American in Paris includes dance numbers choreographed by Gene Kelly (who starred in the film) and songs such as Embraceable You, I Got Rhythm, Our Love is Here to Stay and SWonderful. It concludes with a 17-minute ballet scene that is the movies climax. On April 12, 2015, a Broadway adaptation of the film opened on Broadway. Nominated for 12 Tony Awards, this lyrical, romantic musical won four, including Outstanding Choreography (Christopher Wheeldon) and Outstanding Orchestrations (Christopher Austin.) It also won an Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding New Broadway Musical. American Dart Association According to the American Dart Association, there are 16.64 million dart players in the country. The American Dart League insists on its website that it is not a fad or a trend and has been played for decades here in the United States. America the beer This summer, Budweiser is calling its beer America, instead of Budweiser. So you can get drunk on America, if you so choose. But according to, you wont be drinking an American-owned product, as Budweiser is a global firm based in Belgium. ... If youre drinking America because you think doing so somehow supports America, well, wake up to a sobering reality: The beer labeled America is not American. AMERICAFrom page 1

CELEBRITY EXTRA Taylor Hicks working on show BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: Earlier this year, I was thrilled to see so many familiar faces on the series finale of American Idol. It got me to wondering what Taylor Hicks has been up to. Tanya T., Biloxi, Miss.A: Taylor has been touring and recording pretty much nonstop since he became Americas fifth Idol. Aside from his hectic tour schedule (go to to see if hes performing near you), hes also working on a new food/travel show airing this fall on INSP called State Plate, wherein he visits all 50 states, highlighting each ones food, people and culture. I recently spoke with Taylor, and he thinks this new project is a home run: I look at it like theres an element of Dirty Jobs by Mike Rowe, only its farm-to-table. I definitely get my hands dirty. I dont want to say that I get my hands dirty with farm animals, but Id be lying to you if I didnt say that (laughs). We really dig in, exploring each particular food: where it comes from and the people behind it. If you want something to be successful, you have to appeal to a broad audience, and you wont find a broader audience than exploring the particular foods that people love in every state. Q: Ive watched every episode of Bates Motel, and although I figured Norma (Vera Farmiga) would be killed by Norman, I still dont want it to end. Cant the writers continue this thriller by making Norman take over Normas character as well as his psychotic personality, and thrill the viewers for a few more seasons? Jo C., via emailA: Theres no cause for alarm yet, Jo. Bates Motel will be back for a fifth and final season, most likely in spring 2017. Executive producer Carlton Cuse said that the final season will adapt the events of Psycho, the feature film the series is based on. I was as surprised as anyone that Norma was killed in the fourth seasons penultimate episode. I had always thought shed be alive until the end, with the series finale leading us into the events of the movie. Dont think that weve seen the last of Vera Farmiga. I have a feeling shell be with us and in Normans mind for the final season. Readers: Last but not least, heres a partial list of popular cable shows that wont be back for the 2016-17 season: Agent X, The Awesomes, Awkward, Benders, Bitten, The Brink, Chasing Life, Continuum, Da Vincis Demons, Damien, Deadbeat, Dominion, Downton Abbey, Faking It, Getting On, Hell on Wheels, Hemlock Grove, Hindsight, House of Lies, Key and Peele, The League, Legends, Lost Girl, Mad Dogs, Manhattan, Penny Dreadful, Royal Pains, Satisfaction, The Soul Man and Wallander.

This type of self-analysis helps to prevent a future error of the same kind. Take this case where South made a mistake that cost him dearly. He ruffed the diamond lead, drew trumps, then played a heart to the ten, losing to the jack. East returned a low club, and West won the jack with the queen. West led another heart, the queen losing to the king, and East then cashed the ace of clubs to put the contract down one. South was without question very unlucky on the deal. He tried three finesses and lost them all. He would have gotten home safely had West held the king or jack of hearts, or had East held the queen of clubs. The odds against losing all three finesses were 7-1. Nevertheless, he should have made the contract, despite the bad lie of the cards. South overlooked a line of play that would have assured his success and did not depend on any luck at all. After drawing trumps, he should have attacked clubs, not hearts, by leading a club from his hand at trick four. The purpose of this play would be to establish his fourth club, which eventually would provide a parking place for one of dummys hearts. This approach would have rendered the location of the A-Q of clubs and K-J of hearts totally irrelevant. If West took the first club and led a heart, declarer would finesse the queen, after which the defense could not score a second heart trick regardless of what East did next.


C14 WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY FILM CAPSULESFinding Dory 1/2(Voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed ONeill) Dory (Ms. DeGeneres) tries to find her long-lost parents in this sequel to Finding Nemo. Its a sweet, occasionally funny and sometimes tedious story; you will enter with great excitement and exit with mild disappointment. Rated PG.Central Intelligence (Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Amy Ryan) A tame accountant (Mr. Hart) is forced to team up with an eccentric CIA agent (Mr. Johnson) to stop the sale of encrypted satellite codes. Its an unfunny, horrid slog of a movie thats woefully void of laughs, decent action and (contrary to its title) intelligence. Rated PG-13. Now 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.

Were celebrating July 4th w/ribs, hamburgers & hot dogs! LATEST FILMSOur Kind of TraitorIs it worth $10? NoOur Kind of Traitor is not my kind of traitor movie. It lacks suspense, logical motivations and coherence. A globetrotting story of secret intelligence and high corruption should, at its heartiest, captivate with intrigue, solid performances and twists you cant see coming. It has none of the above. Sure, theres a traitor involved, but not an interesting one. Dima (Stellan Skarsgard) is a money launderer for the Russian Mafia whose new boss (Grigoriy Dobrygin) wants him dead. While on holiday in Marrakech, Dima befriends husband-and-wife tourists Perry (Ewan McGregor) and Gail (Naomie Harris), and asks Perry to take a disk back to London for MI6. Stupidly probably because hes weak-willed and has a terrible haircut Perry agrees. Really, disk transportation should have been the end of it for Perry and Gail. But the story, adapted by Hossein Amini and based on the John LeCarre novel of the same name, stubbornly insists on keeping them involved. MI6 Agent Hector (Damian Lewis) tells them Dima doesnt trust British intelligence to do right by him, so Perry and Gail need to tag along when Hector meets Dima. Here the story strains and loses you. Its established that Perry and Gail are in need of personal redemption, but in no way does that justify their inclusion in the rest of the plot. They owe Dima nothing, yet they risk their lives to save him and his family. Anyone in their right mind would have said, Not my problem! As they continue to meet with Dima, everything that happens simply further strains credulity. This would be more forgivable if Dima were likeable, but hes not. Hes a loud, obnoxious brute who admits to doing bad things and is laudable now only for wanting to keep his family safe. Thats all well and good, but we barely get to know his tribe outside of a cursory introduction, so the audience never has an emotional investment in his loved ones. Thus because we dont care about Dimas family or about him, and because we find Perry and Gail so irretrievably stupid for allowing themselves to be involved in this situation, the whole movie falters. Director Susanna White had the pieces to construct a taut espionage thriller, but what she delivers instead is a labored, unsympathetic look at money laundering and personal vendettas that focuses on the wrong characters. European locales such as London, Paris and Bern add some allure, but far too often moments that should be full of tension struggle to register. The only remotely resonant scene takes place inside a tennis club as Dima and Perry secretly meet with Hector while the Mafia watches their every move, but even this sequence could be improved with a stronger musical score and tighter pacing. Mr. Le Carres work is often seen as the antithesis to Ian Flemings James Bond, meaning its supposed to be harsher, grittier, less fun. Thats fine, and perhaps in print Our Kind of Traitor is compelling and engaging. On screen, unfortunately, its neither. dan >> John Le Carres real name is David Cornwell; in real life he worked for Englands MI5 (which is for domestic threats, similar to the FBI) and MI6 (for foreign threats, similar to the CIA) in the late 1950s and early s.

KOVEL: ANTIQUESUse care with old reference books; modern research has changed histories BY TERRY KOVEL AND KIM KOVELBe careful when using old reference books. Modern research methods, excavations and old documents that were unknown for years have led to changed histories. The Chinese Export porcelain dishes that picture the signers of the Declaration of Independence originally were thought to be made abou t 1820 w hen they copied an 1817 painting by John Trumbull. The men posed while signing the document had Chinese faces, because the decorators probably had never seen a Caucasian man. Full sets were made in this pattern. Collectors and museums paid high prices for examples in the 1950s to 1970s. The existing examples were studied and slight differences in the decoration led to the belief that this design was made for much of the 19th century. It probably was available during the 1876 Philadelphia celebration of the Centennial of the Declaration of Independence. This led to lower prices, but large or unique pieces remain popular and high priced. A punch bowl sold at a 2016 Skinner auction in Boston for $5,228. It pictured 13 blue stars, the men in groups, and a spread-winged eagle with a body that looks like the Union Shield. Q: When we lived in Keene, N.H., years ago we bought furniture from Sprague & Carleton, a local manufacturer. It was reasonably priced furniture that will outlast us. I understand the company has gone out of business. What happened? A: Sprague & Carleton was founded by Frank L. Sprague and William Carleton in Keene, N.H., in 1899. The company started out making maple rocking chairs and settees. About 1,000,000 rockers a year were made by companies in Keene, which became known as the porch chair center of the United States. In the late 1920s, Sprague & Carleton began making other furniture and bought furniture companies in other cities. Although some sources say the company closed in 1967, thats just the date one of its divisions closed. Patriot Industries bought Sprague & Carleton in 1968 and continued to operate the factories in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. According to a 1988 newspaper, the factory in Keene closed in November 1988 because of foreign competition. Q: I have a tea set that belonged to my mother and has to be over 100 years old. It includes a teapot, sugar, creamer, six cups and saucers, and six plates. They are hand painted with two men and a woman and have gold trim. There are gold dragon finials on the lids of the teapot, creamer and sugar. The teapot and creamer also have gold dragons on the spout. The pieces are marked with two interlocking diamonds with the letter T inside of each of them. Who made this tea set and what is it worth? A: Your tea set was made by Takito, a company in business in Nagoya, Japan, from 1880 to 1948. Its impossible to give a

Q: I bought a green scarf a few years ago that reads The Heroes of 98 above a center picture of Lord Edward Fitzgerald. Pictured in the corners are William Orr, Robert Emmet, Theobald Wolfe Tone and Henry Joy McCracken. Who are these men and what is it commemorating? A: The men on your scarf were leaders of the Society of United Irishmen, founded in Belfast, Ireland, in 1791. The Society aimed to unite Catholics, Protestants and dissenters to expand civil rights, reform the Irish parliament and gain control from Britain, but it was not successful. Lord Edward Fitzgerald was head of the military committee that planned to start a rebellion in 1798. Fitzgerald and others were arrested before the rebellion started. William Orr was tried for treason and sent to the gallows in 1797. Fitzgerald was shot when he resisted arrest. He died in prison. Henry Joy McCracken was arrested, court martialed and hanged. Theobald Wolfe Tone was captured and sentenced to hang but took his own life. A warrant was issued for Robert Emmets arrest, but he escaped and left the country. He returned to Ireland to lead another rebellion in 1803 but was captured, tried and hanged. Q: I have a small soft-sided Coca-Cola cooler that has two zippered compartments. The top compartment holds six 16-ounce glasses. The glasses are decorated with umbrella tables and chairs and are marked with an anchor on the bottom. What is this worth? A: The anchor mark was used by Anchor Hocking of Lancaster, Ohio. The cooler with six glasses sells online for about $10-$15. Tip: Be sure copies of lists of valuables, photographs and other information can be found in case of an insurance loss. Give copies, make digital copies and tell a trusted friend how to find them. Do not keep them in the house. This Chinese Export punch bowl depicting the signing of the Declaration of Independence sold for $5,228 at a Skinner auction in Boston earlier this year.

C18 WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2016 NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY scott SIMMONS This find forced me to break my own rules of collecting COLLECTORS CORNERBought: Consign It, 615 W. Indiantown Road, Jupiter; (561) 972-4084. Cost: $75. The Skinny: Never say never when it comes to antiques. I had sworn off figurines for a practical reason: Who needs one more thing to dust? But two English figurines I bought are special because of their age. The couples depicted in these porcelain pieces are dressed in clothing that probably was very much like what their original owners wore when they bought them in the mid-18th century. Yep, theyre 250 years old. Each bears the gold anchor mark, dating them to 1756-1769, and someone has thoughtfully written Chelsea across the bottom of each figure. When that gold anchor mark first was used, King George III had not yet ascended the throne. There was no United States of America. These upper-crust pieces have been witness to a lot of history. That always makes me pause to say, Wow! But there is a certain cachet with pieces of Chelsea, regardless of age. The company was founded in 1743 and changed hands over the course of the reign of King George III. The one that remained became known as Royal Crown Derby. The gold anchor period of Chelsea porcelain drew heavily on French design, with rich colors like the orange, purple and aqua you see on the clothing of these figures. Then theres the matter of detail. Each finger and each fold of clothing is delicately articulated. The patterns on the clothing are elaborately painted. These couples are not without their issues. The man on one figure has a broken arm; I will have it reattached. One of the ladies is missing a fingertip or two. But those are small issues for these survivors. Its the quality that sets them apart from the figurines with which many of us grew up. These pieces were not inexpensive to begin with, simply because of the labor involved in their manufacture. There was no middle class to speak of 250 years ago, so whoever bought these was wealthy, and there were not a lot of them made. Values on figurines have taken a hit over the past decade or so as tastes have changed and younger people see figurines as clutter. But even damaged pieces of Chelsea, Samson, Meissen and Sevres porcelain still fetch hundreds, if not thousands, simply because of their rarity. It probably will cost me at least what I paid for these to have that broken arm repaired. But look at the quality. The Hummel and Lladro figures of recent decades cannot compare in quality to pieces from a couple of centuries ago. And thats why Ill make an exception for these. A pair of 18th century Chelsea porcelain figurines.THE FIND: SCOTT SIMMONS / FLORIDA WEEKLYThis pair of Chelsea porcelain figurines dates from the mid-18th century. Each stands about 8 inches tall and each weighs more than 2 pounds, courtesy of the soft-paste porcelain from which they are made.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JUNE 30-JULY 6, 2016 C25 THE DISH The Dish: Baja Tacos with grilled shrimp The Price: $6 for two The Place: Felipes Taqueria 4255 T amiami Trail N. The Menu: The Details: I promised pizza to my smallest chowhound, only to find that our favored spot is closed on Mondays. I proposed an alternative: tacos. This child can eat her weight in Mexican food (and almost every other cuisine, actually), so her disappointment was fleeting. While she chatted away over her single taco al pastor and carnitas, I savored my two shrimp tacos and listened to absolutely everything she had to say. Grilled shrimp, pickled cabbage, pico de gallo and baja sauce (which tastes like very jazzy sour cream) kept my mouth amused so I could listen the scintillating playground gossip my baby uses to amuse me. It worked. One More Thing: As you can see from the photo, condiments are my jam. I selected pickled carrots (spicy!), chipotle onions and Key lime wedges from the salsa bar. The girl chose lime wedges and radishes, which both puzzles and pleases me.

PAST REPASTSHere are some capsule summaries of previous restaurant reviews: Bar Tulia, 462 Fifth Ave. S., Naples; 228-7606 Do you love Chef Vincenzo Bertulias Osteria Tulia? Then try his second concept: Bar Tulia, a gastropub right next door. Here you can dine on small plates, pizzas, house-made sausage and other items that appeal to the creative chef in a rustic yet hip atmosphere thats clearly gained a following. Even the drinks are creative: Try the pigalle, a refreshing blend of St. Germain elderflower liqueur, prosecco, soda and lemon; or a Hurricane, featuring three kinds of rum, passion fruit, bitters, grenadine and lime. Graze your way through the menu as we did: a generous plate of fresh ceviche; grilled octopus on greens and fingerling potatoes; a perfectly rendered pizza with house-made mozzarella and tomato sauce with fresh basil; grilled house sausage atop stewed white beans; deviled eggs with smoked trout roe; and a full-sized entre of salmon with roasted carrots and beets. For dessert: try the Sicilian waffle with caramelized bananas and maple bourbon almond truffle. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed May 2015 Incas Kitchen, Pavilion Shopping Center, 8955 U.S. 41, Naples; 631-5954 The Peruvian food conjured up by chef/owner Rafael Rottiers is so good no one minded traveling to Golden Gate for it, but now hes opened a stylish Naples establishment as well. The second Incas has an ambience similar to the original, with warm earth tones and Peruvian art. And the food is equally stellar. A Piscojito (made with Peruvian pisco liquor) goes well with any of the 11 varieties of ceviche and seven types of tiradito (a Peruvian style sashimi). The Mar y Tierra was a luscious blend of octopus, shrimp, aji limon (a Peruvian pepper), spices, tiger milk, crab, potato and corn. Sushi rolls one with tuna pepper and sesame oil, the other built around barbecued tenderloin were delicious, too. Mancora sea bass with quinoa, scallops, mussels and clams tasted as good as it looked. A 10-ounce tenderloin with spicy red sauce and tri-colored potatoes will satisfy any carnivore. When it comes to dessert, dont skip whatever sweet features the caramel-flavored lucama fruit. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed December 2014 Rumba Cuban Cafe, 1265 AirportPulling Road; 659-2996 The former Fernandez the Bulls southerly location is in good hands with Chef Jorge Reyes, who used to work there, at the helm. His family infuses Rumba with the same warm, family flavor its predecessor had. And the foods still great, too. Skip the mojito (they dont have a liquor license and use orange wine) and go for the sangria instead. Rumba chips, long, crisp plantain strips served with nicely seasoned ground beef are good for a starter. The tamales were also tasty. Both the ropa vieja (shredded flank steak with tomato sauce) and lechon asado (big marinated and roasted chunks of pork) were excellent with sides of plantains, white rice and black beans. For dessert? You can't go wrong with flan or tres leches cake. Beer and wine served. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed February 2015 TAG The American Gastropub, Coconut Point, 23161 Village Shops Way, Estero; 949-4300 The gastropub tag implies ampedup pub food in a casual but stylish setting, with craft beverages and reasonable prices. TAG is delivering most of that but could be more consistent. A sampling of trendy deviled eggs with fancy toppings revealed garnishes that were just too subtle to achieve the wow factor that can elevate these homey classics in the right hands. We were more impressed with the Prince Edward Island mussels steamed in beer broth seasoned with oranges and coriander and with ground and sliced chorizo tossed in. The combination of sweet fruit and warm spices worked well with the abundant shellfish. A basic burger was elevated by yummy bacon jam, and a salmon entre was perfectly cooked and nicely paired with succotash. Root beer-braised short ribs were impressively tender, but the johnnycakes served underneath were tough, dry and mealy (as was the crust of a deconstructed apple pie stuffed into a pint canning jar). Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed November 2015 21 Spices by Chef Asif, Sugden Park Plaza, 4270 Tamiami Trail E., Naples; 919-8830 Head east on Tamiami Trail, that is for a taste of modern Indian cuisine as imagined and prepared by Chef Asif Rasheed. Born in Northern India, he brings his well-developed talents for art and cooking to this elegant and innovative newcomer where youll find some of the standards as well as intriguing offerings such as lobster mulligatawny soup, dumpukhy goat biryani and jhinga prawns. The ghehra paani diver scallops were plump and delicious atop a mound of black lentils with orange tomato jus and yellow pepper coulis. Palawaka chaat consisted of crisp fried baby spinach leaves intermingled with dates, tamarind and yogurt. Three baby lamb chops were moist and seasoned with a touch of mint and mustard. From the entrees, great choices were the seafood medley, the saffron chicken korma and the Nizams kofte, vegetable and cheese dumplings. Full bar. Food: Service: Atmosphere: Reviewed January 2016

CUISINE REVIEWMidTown Kitchen + Bar brings Fifth Avenue panache to a new part of townIts not that there arent any good restaurants beyond the boundaries of Old Naples. But somehow downtown and Mercato appear to be the primary feeding areas for Neapolitans, drawing throngs while the spots in between draw less attention. Thats not the case with the new place opened by veteran restaurateur Michael Hernandez, who transformed a defunct TGIFridays into his latest hot spot at the corner of Golden Gate Parkway and U.S. 41. Those who have spent a few decades here have likely dined at some of Mr. Hernandez creative establishments Trios, Bistro 821, Zoes and Aqua Grill. He and his wife headed out west for a while but returned to take over Handsome Harrys and the former Zoes, transforming it into the hip HobNob Kitchen and Bar on Fifth Avenue South. Mr. Hernandez wanted to bring that same easy-going vibe uptown, too. And so was born the aptly named MidTown Kitchen + Bar. That theres some serious imagination and talent in the house is evident from the moment you step inside. To the right are banquettes and large, nicely upholstered booths with a few standard tables in between. To the left is a gargantuan bar with seats along one side, a community table with inviting red barstools and still more tables. The place has an industrial feel with high, unfinished ceilings and large silver air conditioning ducts snaking along it. In ate room with booths and banquettes, a five-piece metal mural (a quin-tych?) by artist Bryan Relyea playfully incorporates Naples landmarks such as the Naples Pier, Tin City, Tamiami Trail and a host of other iconic images. Although the rooms are done in grays and blacks, theres a cheery, fun ambience. And while theres also a plethora of hard surfaces, Mr. Hernandez and team artfully incorporated enough sound-absorption so that every noise doesnt bounce off the walls to create a deafening din. My companion and I arrived early on a weeknight and landed one of the booths with the high backs, where we felt as if we had our own little cocoon. First up: cocktails. I enjoyed a Floridian ($12), a sumptuous and refreshing blend of Titos vodka, blood orange Solerno, St. George raspberry liqueur and a bit of lime. My friend had a mojito ($7), which was also well executed. We sipped and tried not to eat too many corn muffins and butter, w hich arrived at about the same time as our drinks. As at HobNob, the menu at MidTown offers an enticing array of small and large plates. Thats no surprise, considering the executive chef is Tony Biagetti, who also heads up the HobNob kitchen. Hes joined here by chef de cuisine Brian Grimm. They make a great team. The menu runs the gamut from virtuously vegetarian to confirmed carnivore, healthy to blow-the-diet splurgy. And at least one of the chefs seems to have a more than passing fixation on bacon: There are, of course, the trendy hardboiled eggs (here they are deviled and topped with tomato jam and candied bacon). House-made chips come with blue cheese and smoked bacon. Oysters have Canadian bacon hash. And the clam chowder has yep bacon. Those are just the starters. Choose from flatbreads, pastas and grains and greens (including a kale and quinoa salad, a farro salad and a lobster salad), a charcuterie board, hummus trio, black bean burger and full plates featuring local snapper, filet mignon, short rib roast and jerk spiced pork tenderloin, plus nine side dishes to enhance whatever else you order. From the social plates, we sampled cold water black mussels ($13) with spicy curry, lemongrass, coconut milk and cilantro. Although the dish could have been warmer, the mussels were tender and good sized, napped in a succulent curry sauce and accompanied with pita triangles that were just right for sopping up more of that sauce. Crispy chicken thighs ($10) were crispy, as promised, topped with cashews, a zesty kung pao sauce and crunchy bits of scallion. My companion was thrilled to find a serious vegetarian plate ($18), and I was equally pleased by a lobster roll ($28). The veggie platter was magnificent. As delicious as it was beautiful, it featured faro (a barley-like, protein-rich starch) topped with roasted Brussels sprouts, baby bok choy, carrots and sweet potatoes. The lobster roll, though somewhat pricey, delivered large chunks of lobster in the salad tucked int o a proper buttered roll with lettuce and tomato. A generous mound of sweet potato fries sprinkled with cinnamon sugar came on the side. They tasted good, but I had little room for them after consuming most of the lobster. For dessert, we split a house-made pineapple and coconut angel food cake ($8), which sounded as if it would be light but wasnt. It had layers of pineapple, coconut and creamy frosting and was just too much for us to handle after drinks, muffins, appetizers and entrees. Our server kindly packed it up for us to take home. Service was attentive and efficient throughout our meal. Although the restaurant has only been open since early June, it operates like a well-oiled machine. MidTown is a welcome addition to the neighborhood. Word is that Mr. Hernandez is working on still another new spot this one off of Immokalee Road. I can hardly wait.

Kalea Bays first tower reaches 18th floor Clubhouse also under constructionKalea Bay, a gated, resort-lifestyle community located on Vanderbilt Drive in North Naples, has set a new standard for luxury residential high-rise living. The incredibly-designed residences at Kalea Bay, combined with spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico, the Cocohatchee River and a pristine nature preserve, have propelled the community to become one of the hottest-selling properties this year. As of late June, our first tower with 120 luxury residences, is 70 percent sold, stated Inga Wilson, Kalea Bays Vice President of Sales & Marketing. The 22-story tower will have 20 floors of residences over two floors of parking. At the current time, construction crews are working on the towers 18th floor, which is helping buyers see the value of purchasing now. From my office in the sales center I can observe the construction progress on a daily basis, said Wilson. Its not only exciting for me, but also for those whove already purchased and even the visitors who have come to the sales center for the first time. Six floor plans are available at Kalea Bay with prices currently starting at $1.3 million. Residences 1 and 6 are 4-bedroom/4bath plans with 3,755 total square feet. Residences 2 and 5, with three-bedrooms plus den and three-and-a-half baths, have 3,835 total square feet while residences 3 and 4 are four-bedroom/four-bath plans with 3,921 total square feet. All residents of Kalea Bay will revel in gulf views, open floor plans, a private elevator leading directly into their residence, 9-foot 2-inch high ceilings and wood floors throughout. The custom kitchens have Wolf and Subzero appliances, a natural gas range, Downsview cabinetry, quartz countertops, a Butlers pantry and oversized island. Our kitchens feature an open design we call lifestyle designs that blends the kitchen seamlessly into the living and dining rooms, perfect for todays hosts and hostesses, said Wilson. The layout of the kitchen can be experienced firsthand through a replica of one in our sales center. The master bedroom includes an oversized walk-in closet while the master bath has his and hers vanities, quartz countertops, luxury cabinetry, a soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed shower. All master suites, kitchens and main living areas have direct views to the water and preserve, stated Wilson. That means all of our residents have front row seats for our spectacular sunsets. Additional residential features include floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to large lanais with transparent glass rails. High-tech wiring and fully equipped laundry rooms round out the list of features. Wilson says dramatic views are available to every single resident, not matter which floor they live on. Thats because the towers amenities are located on the rooftop, explained Wilson. That includes our sky lounge, a dramatic pool and the open-air fitness center. From the rooftop, residents can enjoy daily views of the Gulf of Mexico, the nature preserves and two beaches ranked among the best in the United States. Those beaches include Barefoot Beach Preserve Park, which was ranked #2 nationally in 2015, and Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, which was ranked #9, said Wilson. The first residential high-rise tower at Kalea Bay will be completed in the summer of next year. However, it wont be the only building on-site to reach that milestone. Currently, Kalea Bays community clubhouse area is also under construction and slated to be completed around the same timeframe, said Wilson. Our clubhouse area will be the social and recreational centerpiece of the community. Kalea Bays 88,000-square-foot clubhouse is located on the north side of the large lake at the communitys entrance and is currently under construction. The clubhouse will feature three individual pools, including a resort pool, an adults-only pool and a childrens pool, plus an expansive pool deck, an open air bar, an indoor/outdoor restaurant, a snack bar, an Internet cafe and a gifts and sundries shop. All three pools will overlook the lake and provide a multitude of recreational options for everyone who lives and visits here, said Wilson. Expansive sun decks with lounge chairs and native, tropical plants will separate each of the three pools for the ultimate in privacy. If basking in the sun or taking a refreshing dip in the pool isnt on a residents schedule, perhaps meeting friends for lunch, dinner or drinks is. We have the perfect place for all three, said Wilson. The indoor/outdoor restaurant will serve phenomenal meals throughout the day. And what better way to celebrate the good life in Florida than meeting family and friends for drinks while watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. This is what living in Florida is supposed to be. Just a short walk from the clubhouse will be the tennis pavilion with six lighted Har-Tru tennis courts. Nearby are 24 guest suites to accommodate overnight guests and family members. Having that number of guest suites is unusual for a luxury high-rise community, but its an amenity many of our residents are excited about especially when they have extended family visiting, said Wilson. There will also be a shuttle service, originating from the clubhouse, to the beach. For more information regarding Kalea Bay visit the on-site sales center. It is located on Vanderbilt Drive, just north of Wiggins Pass Road at 13910 Old Coast Road in North Naples. Additional information is available by calling (239) 793-0110 or online at Kalea Bay residences have open floor plans with 9-foot high ceilings. All master bedrooms offer views of the Gulf of Mexico. The kitchens at Kalea Bay blend seamlessly into the living and dining areas. The 22-story tower at Kalea Bay will have 120 residences.

Allures Relaxing floorplan is the perfect choice for residents looking to right-size their homeSince the opening of the ALLURE sales gallery earlier this year, sales at the new luxury condominium tower to rise 32 stories over the scenic Caloosahatchee River in the Historic Downtown Fort Myers River District, have been moving along steadily. One of the most popular floorplan designs among buyers looking for a beautiful home in a vibrant urban center, has been the Relaxing residence. This thoughtfully-designed floorplan has been extremely attractive to buyers who are looking for the perfect-size home to suit their needs and lifestyles. The layout of this spacious 2-bedroom residence provides an expansive width of more than 40 feet, with water views from every room, as well as an almost 300-square-foot balcony. The contemporary design of the Relaxing layout provides unobstructed views of the glistening river and some of the most breathtaking, colorful sunsets on Floridas Gulf Coast. Weve seen great interest from empty-nesters, and those soon-to-be-retired, who want to live an active, full lifestyle in an urban area that provides everything they need, and all within walking distance or a short trolley ride from their home, says ALLURE Sales and Marketing Director Barbara Bengochea-Perez. When asked what attracted buyers Randy Thomas and Arnie Wohl to ALLURE, Randy said The vision JAXI has for the Allure condominium towers blew me away. The clean, modern, top-of-the line design sold me on the Relaxing floor plan. I can see myself preparing many dinners while watching the sun set across the river. The design is top-notch, elegant and beautiful, and we cannot wait to be in our new home. The impact-resistance windows, security on premises, and private access elevators, make living at ALLURE completely worry-free, says developer JAXI CMD Managing Member Eduardo Caballero. The astonishing array of amenities within the building, including a sunset pool and observation deck, piers, and rooftop gardens, combined with more than three square miles of dining, shopping, and entertainment options that are just short walk away in the pedestrian-friendly River District, have made ALLURE a popular choice among residents looking for a hasslefree, luxurious and fulfilling lifestyle, he adds. Luxurious residence features at ALLURE include covered garage parking with 24-hour controlled access. A variety of thoughtfully-designed, open floor plans priced from the high $300s to over $1 million offer one, two and three plus bedrooms. ALLURE also boasts an array of resortstyle building amenities: a peaceful, landscaped riverfront promenade; private screening room with theater-style seating and cutting-edge audio visual equipment; state-of-the-art gym; pool deck with heated cascading infinity-edge pool overlooking the water; Allure Your Senses rooftop gardens; social gathering rooms with fireplace, billiards, game tables; Bocce Ball and barbeque grills on the rooftop, Pickleball by the pool, and many other luxury features. Historic Downtown Fort Myers is home to over 65 cafes, bars and restaurants, unique boutiques and galleries, a professional theater, and popular weekly events including Art Walk and Music Walk.
