Trash or treasure?Antiques dealers share insights on whats hot and whats not Helpers needed to find bats BY ARTIS HENDERSONFlorida Weekly CorrespondentThe Florida Master Naturalist Program, a citizen scientist program developed by the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, is leading a study of bats across the state of Florida and has put out a call for volunteers. These volunteers will help generate a statewide map of the bridges that are currently occupied by bats. The Florida Department of Transportations bridge maintenance office lists 12,094 bridges throughout the state of Florida. In 2003, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission conducted a random survey of 479 bridges and documented active bat colonies in 151 of them. The current survey directed by the Master Naturalist Program aims to survey all 12,094 bridges. Government agencies like the FWC are often strapped for resources, both in manpower and time. Volunteerstaffed citizen scientist projects like the bat survey help fill in the gaps, providing valuable data on Florida wildlife. Similar citizen scientist projects have been used to collect data on other animals, including scrub jays and reef fish. In 2014, Dr. Kirsten Bohn, a bat specialist and professor at Florida International University at the time, organized the Miami Bat Squad, a group of citizen scientist volunteers who documented roosting sites for the endangered bonneted bat around the Miami area. These surveys have helped document populations over time and can reveal declining numbers. Theyve also contributed to conservation efforts and raised public awareness about wildlife in Florida. Twenty years ago bats were considered a nuisance similar to pigeons, and screens were hung beneath bridges to keep them out.

A2 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY 7200 Trail Boulevard, Naples, (239) 598-3330 | Other locations in Ft. Myers, Sarasota, Tarpon Springs and Pinellas Park | matterbrothersfurniture.com COMMENTARYHigh values and class: the legacy of Pat SummittTheres a lot of talk about generations the greatest this, the boomers that, the Xers some other, the millennials now. Ive always been suspicious of the distinctions. At the same time, the men and women in each generation face different societal or economic challenges than those in other generations. But we all inherit the same ageless struggle to be human here in the United States to find good work, to know and celebrate love, to be healthy, and to earn respect and equal treatment from others. In the 1950s and s, when University of Tennessee Womens Basketball Coach Pat Summitt and I were young, the nations notions of equality were more theoretical. So when Coach Summitt died last week at the age of 64 from Alzheimers a disease Id never associated with baby boomers before I realized that she defies the mere stereotypes of her generation. Using the sport of amateur basketball as a springboard, she defined what is most luminous and worthy in the American character, in spite of the restrictions women in her generation faced, especially when they were young. I didnt just come up with this notion out of a clear blue sky. Instead, I read a single public comment from Florida Weekly editor Betty Wells normally reticent, careful with praise a tough-minded, widely experienced writer and editor who never speaks unless she has something worthy to say. On June 26, two days before Coach Summitt died, she responded to a Facebook announcement from the Pat Summitt Foundation that Coach Summitts condition was grave. Betty shared the post and added four short but poignant sentences: She has always been an inspiration to me. A selfless teacher and a willing mentor to other women both in sports and outside sports. She persevered and won with grace, never losing sight of her values. Peace to you, Coach. Coach Summit had established the Foundation in the fight against Alzheimers after she was diagnosed in 2011 and stepped down as the Volunteers head coach in 2012. Shed led the womens teams for 38 years, graduating every player she coached, winning more than 84 percent of her games and concluding her career with 1,098 victories the highest number in NCAA history. Her teams won eight NCAA Division I titles. But thats not what appealed most to me, or perhaps to Betty nor the fact that she won a silver medal captaining the womens basketball team in the 1976 Olympics and a gold medal coaching it in the 1984 Olympics, or that she wrote three books, or that she was pure Tennessee from start to scratch. What I admire about her was her character, which would have served in any generation, under any conditions. Born in Clarksville on June 14, 1952, the year Dwight Eisenhower won the White House, she moved with her parents and four siblings in high school to Henrietta, so she could play basketball. Clarksville had no team. Then she went on to the University of Tennessee at Martin, becoming an All-American. That happened before the 1972 passage of a federal law called Title IX, which prohibits discrimination based on sex in any government-funded program. Although Pat Summitts three older brothers all earned college scholarships for their sports prowess, she did not. With an undergraduate degree in hand, Summitt took up graduate studies at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. Almost immediately the head coach of the Lady Volunteers resigned, and Coach Summitt accepted the position. At the time she was 22 years old. The pay was $250 a week, or $12,000 a year. By contrast, at UCLA John Wooden was making $40,500 to coach the men. And merely coaching was the least of it. Unlike John Wooden, she drove the team van to games. She slept on the gym floor of an opposing team with her players because they had no money for motels. She washed and dried their clothes. We played because we loved the game. We didnt think anything about it, she told Time Magazine in 2009. But to those endeavors she added the qualities of a temperament I revere: Pat Summitt treated each player with equal caring, not just the great ones. She tried as hard as she could, all the time, for all of them. And she did well by doing good, a fact that transcends basketball and a virtue that transcends the generations. Two days after she died, I asked Betty in a phone conversation why she was so moved by Coach Summitt. She started coaching about the same time I started work as a rookie reporter, Betty told me. I was a good athlete in high school, and it was frustrating for women my age, or who didnt make the Title IX cut, to think we didnt have the opportunity to go to college and play sports to get a full ride. I dont begrudge the women who came after, but I was frustrated. That was one thing, Betty said. But there was more. Ive always been a big basketball fan I graduated from Wichita State University (the Shockers, who revere the sport). I loved the way she coached. Classy. Tough. Serious. You hardly ever saw her smile during the course of a game, but she got the job done. She was an inspiring person for all women, but not just women for everyone. Every one of her players graduated. Thats a remarkable legacy. For anybody who tries to succeed, whether in business or journalism or teaching or coaching, what a model she was. And she was a model to the end, Betty said. She was diagnosed five years ago, and she carried on that last season with such grace and dignity. She didnt let the disease cripple her. It was pretty much always on her terms. And those terms were, high values and class. roger WILLIAMSrwilliams@floridaweekly.com

That is the global elites collective reaction to Britains vote to exit the European Union, which is being portrayed as the work of ill-informed xenophobes who never should have been entrusted with a decision of such worldhistorical importance. Judging by their dismissive tone, critics of Brexit believe that the EUs lack of basic democratic accountability is one of its institutional advantages the better to insulate consequential decisions from backward and shortsighted voters. Britain gave us the Magna Carta and such foundational thinkers on the road to democratic rule as John Locke and John Milton. It resisted centralizing monarchs in the turbulence of the 17th century, and defeated continental threats to its sovereignty emanating from Spain (King Philip II), France (Napoleon) and Germany (Hitler). Should it be shocking that it said no thanks to continuing to subsume itself in a budding European superstate? Maintaining British sovereignty, broadly construed, was the overwhelming rationale for Brexit. According to a survey by Lord Ashcroft Polls, 49 percent of leave voters said the biggest reason for exiting the EU was that decisions about the U.K. should be taken in the UK Another 33 percent said it was the best way to regain power over the UKs borders, and 13 percent said they worried the UK couldnt control how the EU expanded its membership or its powers. All the critics of Brexit see in the vote, though, is hostility to immigrants. There is no doubt that immigration played a large role. But a country controlling its own borders is a necessary element of sovereignty. The foreign-born population of Britain has doubled in the past 20 years, with the government powerless to stop much of the influx. It, self-evidently, should be the right of the British people to decide whether they want less or more immigration. A constant refrain of Brexit critics is that leaving the EU was much too complex and important an issue to put to a referendum. But at bottom the question was simple: Shall parliament remain the supreme lawmaking body in Britain or not? This is a foundational decision that it makes sense to put directly before the voters. The British people voted to reject the EU superstructure that had been hoisted on top of their traditional political institutions. The vote roiled the markets, and another theme of Brexit critics is that leave voters now regret their temper tantrum. But a poll for the Sunday Mirror newspaper found that 92 percent of leave voters were happy with the outcome of the referendum. There may indeed be an economic cost to Brexit, but politics isnt reducible to a stock index something that Americans, having once made their own tumultuous exit from an offshore power, should reflexively understand. You are not to inquire how your trade may be increased, nor how you are to become a great and powerful people, but how your liberties can be secured, Patrick Henry declared during a 1788 debate over ratifying the Constitution, for liberty ought to be the direct end of your Government. Rich Lowry is the editor of the National Review. OPINIONDown for the final countIt was a rare moment, a sweep of fresh air across the nation despite the death that stirred it. We remembered for a moment the greatness of what it means to be an American. It was the parting gift of a man whose courage and achievements stopped the nations clock. The magnitude of his life was worthy of celebration. It was a life that could have been achieved and lived only in America. His story is the story of the American dream fulfilled. Who better to tell it than the man himself? But it was, after all, a funeral. It doesnt usually happen that way. Muhammad Ali thought differently. He saw the occasion of his death as an opportunity to share with the world the vision and values that were fundamental to his own success. He invited the people he touched and who touched him to be his voice. He took 10 years to plan his final goodbye, a task most of us would choose to devote as little time to as possible. It was not an act of hubris. It was a commitment of love. Those close to the man say he never forged a singular identity. His life was a grand tapestry woven from many different threads. His memorial service underscored this pattern of diversity. Like all lives, his was complicated, filled with events and intersections that changed what might have been. Alis widow said he wanted the teachable moments he earned in life to be paid forward. He knew his fame insured that his death would attract global attention. He was right, of course. The service was broadcast by the national networks and live streamed on social media. And what an event it was. Wrote Jim Dwyer of The New York Times, Ali was eulogized in a grand sports arena by, among others, a priest and an imam, a rabbi and a monk, a former United States president and a famous comedian. Protges and daughters and his wife remembered him. As they spoke, all stood beneath the flags of the United States and the Olympic Games, symbols of a man who saw himself as a citizen of America and of the world. It was a service befitting the man who inspired it. It included a 20-mile journey of his coffin afterwards on streets strewn with roses through his hometown of Louisville, Ky. Tens of thousands of people gathered along the route to say their farewell to the 74-yearold icon. As I watched the slow procession make its way through the city, Walt Whitmans poem, A Song of Myself, came to mind. A stanza goes: I celebrate myself. And what I assume you shall assume. For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you. Ali could have written the verse himself. He believed we are one in Gods eyes and bound together by our shared humanity. He refused to be anything less than the man he was. That didnt come easily. He was black, he was proud, he was Muslim, he was a conscientious objector, and he was against the Vietnam War. This was in the s. He was then an up-and-coming boxer on his way to becoming a world-class athlete. It was a tumultuous time. The Viet Nam War was boiling over, the foundations of state-sanctioned segregation were crumbling, and the national struggle for civil rights was nearing its zenith. His moral courage cost him dearly. He was found guilty of draft evasion, stripped of his heavyweight titles and barred from boxing for several years. His conviction was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1971. He retired in 1981, and turned his energy to religious and charitable purposes. He was diagnosed shortly thereafter with Parkinsons disease, a disease associated with his boxing career. In 1996, he provided one of the most moving moments in Olympic history when he was given the honor of lighting the Olympic cauldron in the opening ceremony of the centennial Olympic Games. At the memorial service, Rev. Kevin Cosby of St. Stephen Church in Louisville said of Ali, He dared to love black people at a time when black people had a problem loving themselves. He dared to affirm the beauty of blackness, he dared to affirm the power and the capacity of African-Americans. He dared to love Americas most unloved race. Ali was on the right side of history. He will be remembered as a great American. Voices of Christians, Jews, Buddhists and Native Americans all gave witness to the greatness of a nation that produces such a man and builds such a community. Alis farewell produced a rare moment of hope and national unity. It contradicted with love all who would splinter the nation apart with hate. It was a final victory worthy of a champion.

A8 NEWS WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY People will say, Oh, my God. My grandmother collected that. I didnt like it then, and I dont like it now, said Judy Haar of Judys Antiques in Fort Myers. The Lladro and Hummel figurines you lovingly collected for your grandkids? The generation that bought it is giving it to a generation that doesnt care, Mr. Gannon said. The same goes for Grandmas set of Noritake, Haviland, Lenox or other fine china. The new generation is a generation of disposable party ware, Mr. Gannon said. He literally cannot give away sets of fine china that once sold for several hundred dollars. I have a clearance area set up outside where Im selling sets of china for $49. Ive got Haviland-Limoges and Noritake out there. These are sets that were selling 10 years ago for $300 or more, he said. But oddly enough, some pieces still have cachet. Early, early English china Minton. People are still collecting that. Those people are doing the fine formal dining, Mr. Gannon said. Other objects always have a market. We still sell teacups. People like to do tea parties, said Ms. Haar. That also happens on Floridas east coast. A lot of people have tea parties at their homes and they look for teapots and cups and saucers, agreed Doralea Asher, owner of All Good Things, an antiques mall in Lake Worth, just south of West Palm Beach. It may be a holdover from the shabby chic craze of a decade or so ago, with painted furniture, chintzes and old-fashioned floral prints. People mixed and matched china patterns and teacups. Florals, those are the ones that are in the demand. Floral dinner sets that are from France or are English anything that is from Limoges but nothing plain. It has to be very French looking and very floral, Ms. Asher said. It also needs to be high end. If it was high quality and expensive when you first purchased it, its still worth a lot of money now, Mr. Gannon said. Thats generally speaking, but jewelry and silver by Georg Jensen, Tiffany, Cartier and others tend to appeal to folks who always could afford the finer things. Even if they lose value, they still tend to retain a higher percentage of their purchase price than lesser items. Cartier? Its no problem to sell. Some of the really good d esigners of jewelry in the s s and 0s are pretty hot, but they have to be good, interesting pieces, said Kathleen Pica, owner and auctioneer at Auctions Neapolitan, a division of Dovetails LLC, in Naples. Mr. Gannon noted a similar trend. Mens watches, not ladies watches, are always in good demand. Watches that are worth more than $1,000 are easier to sell than watches priced under $200, he said. But that points to a trend following the recent economic crisis in w hich demand all but disappeared on lower to midlevel collectibles. Starting in the 1970s, 20th century American pottery was popular with collectors, as pieces of Rookwood, Roseville, Weller and McCoy began to increase in value, with most pieces selling for anywhere from $50 or so to the low hundreds. Popularity spawns copycats, and pieces of Roseville were reproduced in China during the 1990s, causing confusion among collectors. Rookwood still sells, but for the mundane stuff, theres not a whole lot of interest, Ms. Haar said. Prices across the market have dropped, with most ordinary pieces of 20th century American pottery selling for $50 or less. So why does Rookwood still sell? Well, it was much higher end to begin with than Roseville, Weller and McCoy. But even the better objects cycle in and out of favor. Remember Hummel figurines? The market has all but collapsed for the whimsical German porcelain figures. Hummels. My feeling is that a lot of this stuff was very collectible during a certain period of time, said Ms. Haar. Royal Doulton, too. It was a trendy thing to collect, and as collectors got older and moved into assisted living, they all unloaded it at the same time. Theres just too much of it on the market. She remembers when Hummels fetched big bucks. At one time, Germans came to my shop and bought them. Evidently they could buy them here cheaper, but not any more. Even Lladro has gone down. The lower end Lladro figurines now fetch $30-$50 apiece, according to Mr. Gannon. Its just like Hummels. The Hummel market 10 years ago was good. Now they just sit. You just cant give them away. I had a blowout sale where I was selling them for $10 apiece. Well-designed furnishings and accessories from the middle of the 20th century are popular with collectors today. The biggest trend right now is midcentury modern, as far as desirability. Its been in the market but were seeing an ever increasing demand for it and its getting harder and harder to find, Mr. Gannon said.

I think its nostalgia with the midcentury pieces, said Ms. Asher, the Lake Worth antiques dealer. Hobe Sound appraiser and auctioneer Tim Luke agreed. Theres some sort of reminiscence from their youth, he said of collectors. Somebody had this stuff when they were growing up or they are rebelling against antiques. I think the s and s was a rebellion against that antique look. Thats a trend that goes beyond the baby boom. But the really young people in their 20s and 30s gravitate to the midcentury, and they gravitate to the old linens and Pyrex and the colorful glasses, Ms. Asher said, remembering Swanky Swigs and other novelty glassware of the 1950s and s. Objects that are useful or decorative also sell. Coins sell, knives sell, vaseline glass sells, said T.C. Dorler of Galleria Mall Antiques & Collectibles in Punta Gorda. Any type of yard ornaments or nautical stuff also sells. Ms. Pica, the Naples auctioneer, predicts china and other objects will regain their lost luster. I think youre going to see a resurgence, with softer lines and softer details coming back, she said. She can spot a trend. After 40 years, you start seeing these things over and over again. You understand that theyre worth money and that people want them and theyre desirable, but its the unusual that makes you go, Whoa! Ms. Pica said. Thats why she sells art and antiques. Ive always been intrigued by what makes people buy what they buy. I think the business is fascinating.Whats hot Midcentury Think quality designs from the post-World War II period by such luminaries as Charles and Ray Eames, Harry Bertoia, Norman Cherner or Eero Saarinen. We love to bring midcentury to auction, said Tim Luke, a Hobe Soundbased auctioneer and appraiser who has appeared on Antiques Roadshow, HGTVs Cash in the Attic and Fox Business Networks Strange Inheritance. Repurposed pieces When I go to Junk Bonanza (an annual event in Minnesota), Im seeing lots of 20th-century furniture that theyre painting up, Mr. Luke said. Now, its decorative and functional. Silver People have been collecting silver, not only in bullion or coins, but Georg Jensen and Tiffany, said Rick Gannon of Gannons Antiques & Art in Fort Myers. But the silver needs to carry high-end hallmarks like he mentioned. Tiffany silver needs carry an early mark, according to Mr. Luke. We try to make that distinction, he said. Jewelry All kinds. Victorian and Deco jewelry, nice, old Mexican jewelry, Southwestern jewelry, sell well, said Judy Haar of Judys Antiques in Fort Myers. Any of the old estate jewelry, say, from the 0s back, sells well. High-end objects Blue-chip items like Tiffany and Lalique sell well, said Kathleen Pica, owner and auctioneer at Auctions Neapolitan, a division of Dovetails LLC, in Naples. Ms. Haar agreed. Good art glass will sell. Some of the s stuff will sell Murano, if its signed. Thats still pretty good. Of course, Steuben and Baccarat, thats always good. Even Waterford. The pieces folks are looking for are the older pieces.Whats not Hummels and other collectible figurines You just cant give them away, said Mr. Gannon. Even Lladro figurines are problematic. You have two levels, the traditional store-bought Lladro or those you had to go to an actual factory or Lladro store to buy. The bigger pieces, the ones you had to pay $800 or $1,000, still have a high demand and a high value. Limited edition plates, dolls, figures and other items Mom always said they would appreciate in value, said Mr. Luke. But these objects were made in the tens of thousands, rendering them common and worthless. Remember Beanie Babies? I have garbage bags of Beanie Babies that will never sell, Mr. Gannon said. I have them as gifts for children and let them hold on to them if theyre good in the store. Most furniture Furniture of all types is a hard sell unless its a rarity or distinctive or a really good designer, said Ms. Pica. The market for most Victorian furniture is very soft, and just about every family has had a mahogany Duncan Phyfe table of some sort that carries a story of how some grandmother acquired it. But 99.99 percent of those were mass-produced sometime between 1920 and 1950, and were not very good quality to begin with. We look at those and go crazy, said Mr. Luke. Sets of china Royal Copenhagens Flora Danica pattern has remained a top seller, according to Ms. Pica. But the rest? Your Limoges, Noritake, your Haviland, your china sets where they are worth $200 or under, people dont want them, said Mr. Gannon. The same goes for Lenox, Wedgwood and other seemingly high-end dinnerware. Sets of china? Cant sell it, and it takes up more room than its worth. Gosh, there was a time when (Replacements Ltd.) would come down from North Carolina and buy big sets of dishes. Those days are gone, my friend, said Ms. Haar. Lower to middle level collectibles Remember Fenton, Fostoria and other Depression-era glass? Well, the market for that has dropped in most areas. The same is true for other items priced under $100 or so that once were the mainstay of any antiques shop or show, said Mr. Gannon. Of course, markets may vary. T.C. Dorler of Galleria Mall Antiques & Collectibles in Punta Gorda says she still has collectors of Fenton glass and Wade figurines during the season. People still buy tea cups for parties. Glamalite tumblers offer midcentury style. Elegant Depression-era glass pieces, like this Fostoria American pattern punch bowl, have lost value. What to doSo you have inherited Moms collection of Bradford Exchange or Franklin Mint plates. She paid $35 apiece but theyre only bringing $5 on eBay, so what do you do? Hold a garage sale, but dont have high expectations, said appraiser and auctioneer Tim Luke, co-owner of Treasure Quest Appraisal Group of Hobe Sound. Or donate it to a charity. Mr. Luke suggests people consider repurposing furniture with paint and other trimmings. A good part of the business at Dovetails LLC in Naples is Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. I think youre going to see a resurgence of softer lines and softer details coming back, said Kathleen Pica, owner and auctioneer at Dovetails and its subsidiary, Auctions Neapolitan. I think thats part of why I think that look is coming back. The lighter grays are very good. It has to be light furniture, said T.C. Dorler of Galleria Mall Antiques & Collectibles in Punta Gorda. Shabby chic is huge anything shabby chic is huge, she said citing the rustic, pastelpainted furniture and oral accessories that have been popular over the past decade. Even if theyre not on a piece of shabby chic furniture, light colors are hip and are oh, so Florida. Obviously, were in a coastal area, so were going to do more coastal than the rest of the country, Ms. Pica said. Repurposing an item is an inexpensive way to achieve a look for which folks are willing to spend thousands and to honor Moms legacy. Scott Simmons

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY www.FloridaWeekly.com WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2016 NEWS A15 BATSFrom page 1play in the local ecology. In Bonita Springs, CGT Kayaks offers an Imperial River Moonlight Bat Paddle. Paddlers take the river east of downtown to view a colony of more than 1,000 Brazilian free tailed bats that live under the Matheson Avenue bridge. What happens is at sunset they all come streaming out to feed on insects, said CGT owner and tour guide John Paeno. On some nights they fill the sky haphazardly, he said, or create almost like a funnel of bats. The Matheson bridge has been home to bats for decades as far as Mr. Paeno knows. CGTs next Bat Paddle is scheduled for July 16. I think the original fear of bats is kind of waning at least in our area, maybe all over the country, because they know a majority of them eat mosquitos, said Mike Kirby, senior environmental specialist with the city of Bonita Springs. Bats are welcome in part as insect control in many residential backyards where people put up bat houses to attract them, as well as at Bonita Nature Place. Most of the bat species we have in Florida are insectivorous, says Pete Corradino, a wildlife biologist for the Everglades Day Safari who will be surveying the bridges in Hendry County. They feed on flying insects that can be nuisances, including mosquitoes. Studies have documented a single bat eating up to 3,000 insects in one night. Their diet not only includes community pests like mosquitoes but also extends to agricultural pests such as beetles and stink bugs. A 2011 article in Science magazine estimated that bats save U.S. farmers $3 billion annually. Bats also serve as pollinators for night flowers, and they help disperse seeds and fertilize plants. But like many species across the state, theyre being threatened by habitat loss. We take down the forests where they roost, Mr. Corradino says, and theyre losing the habitats they require. While the bat survey was conceived as an FMNP endeavor, Erik Neugaard a lead instructor with the FMNP who has been conducting wildlife surveys for more than 20 years and is coordinating the study says he is happy to include anyone who is enthusiastic about the studys goals. Volunteers will be assigned an area, either an entire county or part of a county depending on how many bridges are listed for that location. People can go out on their own, although for safety reasons its encouraged to bring a partner. Volunteers establish the presence of bats under bridges using three methods: sight, sound and smell. First they will look for evidence of bats, both high and low. Theyll check whether they can see bats hanging from the bridge near the expansion joints, and then theyll search for piles of guano and stains created by bat urine on the ground. Next, volunteers will listen for bats. The most common bat in Florida is the Mexican or Brazilian free tailed bat, and this particular bat chirps in a range that is audible to the human ear. Finally, volunteers will need to confirm the presence of bats by smell. Bats release a pheromone in their urine that produces a highly distinctive odor. Often, its possible to identify the presence of bats by smell alone. Mr. Neugaard says the survey is ongoing, and he hopes to have it completed by the end of the year. It will depend on the number of volunteers and how passionate they are. Volunteers can reach him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Bat factsFlorida has 13 resident bat species. The most common is the Mexican or Brazilian free tailed bat, and two species the Florida bonneted bat and the gray bat are currently endangered. Natural roosting sites for bats in Florida include caves, hollow trees, the underside of dead palm fronds and Spanish moss. Native bats are insectivorous and can eat thousands of insects in a single night. Florida Weekly writer EvanWilliams contirubted to this report. DESIGNER HOME DECOR AT WAREHOUSE PRICES!

Study finds likelihood of trying marijuana begins at age 11, peaks at ages 16 and 18 UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA HEALTHThe likelihood adolescents will try marijuana rises steadily from age 11 to age 16, then decreases before hitting another peak at age 18, according to a new University of Florida study. The study findings, which appear in the American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse, may help experts develop new marijuana prevention strategies, says lead author Xinguang (Jim) Chen, M.D., Ph.D., a professor in the department of epidemiology in the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions and the UF College of Medicine, which are both part of UF Health. Many existing marijuana intervention programs target students age 15 and older, Dr. Chen said. Our findings demonstrate the need to start drug education much earlier, in the fourth or fifth grade. This gives us an opportunity to make a preemptive strike before they actually start using marijuana. As medical marijuana laws are passed in more states, there is concern among some experts that adolescents may view marijuana as a substance that can be used safely by anyone, regardless of whether it is part of a treatment plan under a physicians supervision. Using marijuana at a young age could put adolescents at risk for cognitive problems, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Teens who use marijuana may have impaired brain development and lower IQ. They may receive lower grades and are more likely to drop out of high school. The UF study was designed to learn when adolescents are most at risk for starting marijuana use. It is one of the first studies to examine the likelihood of marijuana initiation as a function of age and it used a study method called survival analysis that is more sensitive to fluctuations across age groups, Dr. Chen said. The team analyzed data from the 2013 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, a nationwide crosssectional survey including approximately 27,000 respondents ages 12 to 21, sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. The researchers found the likelihood that adolescents would start using marijuana climbed steadily starting at age 11, reaching a first peak at age 16. But the researchers were surprised to discover that at age 17, there was a dip in the possibility that teens would start using marijuana. The team theorizes that many 17-yearolds are focused on improving grades and preparing for college entrance exams, which could pull their attention away from experimenting with drugs. This finding may represent an additional approach for developing interventions, Dr. Chen said. Increasing adolescents academic responsibilities and placing more emphasis on education could be one way to postpone drug use initiation, ultimately preventing drug use, he said. The likelihood of marijuana initiation rebounded at age 18 for a second peak. This corresponds to another major milestone in the lives of many young adults, said Bin Yu, M.D., one of the studys co-authors, and a research assistant in the UF department of epidemiology. At 18, many adolescents leave their parents homes to start college or enter the workforce, Dr. Yu said. They may be more susceptible to influence from peers and they have less monitoring by their parents and the community. The researchers found that by age 21, 54 percent of young adults will have used marijuana. The research team, which also included Sonam Lasopa, Ph.D., a recent graduate of the UF doctoral program in epidemiology, and Linda B. Cottler, Ph.D., M.P.H., a deans professor, chair of the UF department of epidemiology and PHHPs associate dean for research, noted a second surprise finding when they analyzed the likelihood of marijuana use by race. Adolescents who self-identified as having a multiracial background were significantly more likely to use marijuana than any other racial or ethnic group. More research is needed to understand the reasons why adolescents from multiracial backgrounds may be at increased risk for initiating marijuana use, Dr. Chen said. With that knowledge, experts can develop prevention programs that take into account racial and ethnic differences, as well as age. This study finding supports the idea of precision intervention, he said. Intervention programs should be developed for both parents and adolescents, and delivered to the right target population at the right time for the best prevention effect.

Sessions are facilitated by Naples resident Linda Allen, who has led intensives in Wisconsin for several years and in Naples since mid-2013. Meetings 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. No walk-ins will be accepted.

BY KIM CAMPBELL THORNTONUniversal UclickWhen I walked onto the grounds of Gachen Lama Khiid at Erdenetsogt in Mongolias Khangai Mountains, nearly the first thing I saw was a cat sunning himself outside the temple. Cats are not especially popular as companion animals in Mongolia, but when I thought about it, the cats presence made sense. I confirmed my suspicion later as I drank salty milk tea with the monasterys head lama. Is it common for monasteries to have a cat? I asked. Our guide, Batana Batu, translated his response. Yes, he said. The cat is there to protect food stores from mice. Cats have served as pest control at temples and monasteries throughout the world for centuries. Egyptian temple cats were trained to hunt snakes and rodents, reported fifth-century Greek historian Herodotus. In Cyprus, at the Monastery of St. Nicholas of the Cats, snakes overran the island after a drought. The monasterys patron, the future St. Helena, had 1,000 cats brought in from Egypt and Palestine to kill the snakes. An unknown ninth-century Irish monk wrote a poem about his cat, Pangur Ban, that we still read and appreciate today:I and Pangur Ban my cat, Tis a like task we are at: Hunting mice is his delight, Hunting words I sit all night. Medieval monks prized cats not only because they warred against mice to protect food stores, but also because they prevented mice from nibbling on the manuscripts the monks labored to create. The occasional inky paw print on a page was less destructive. Nuns in convents were forbidden to have pets such as dogs and monkeys a rule they frequently broke but there was one exception. The 13th-century Ancrene Wisse, rules for nuns, notes in the section titled On Domestic Matters: You shall not possess any beast, my dear sisters, except only a cat.Between 1306 and 1467, Exeter Cathedral had a succession of official cats. A penny per week was budgeted to supplement the diet of the cat, who was otherwise expected to chow down on mice and other pests. The north transept wall still has a hole (an early cat door?) through which the cat could enter and exit. Several cat breeds are reputed to have originated as monastery or temple cats. The legend behind the Burmese is that Buddhist monks regarded the shorthaired brown cats as embodiments of gods.The Birman, once known as the Sacred Cat of Burma (now called Myanmar), is said to descend from cats that were companions to temple priests in the northern part of the country. The story goes that a priest named Mun Ha, accompanied by his beloved white cat, was praying in the temple beneath the golden statue of the goddess Tsim Kyan Tse, whose eyes were represented by brilliant sapphires. Marauders in search of treasure broke in and attacked the priest. As he lay dying, the cat rested his paws on Mun Has head and faced the statue. Suddenly, his white fur became tipped with gold, his legs darkened and his eyes changed from yellow to deep sapphire blue, but his paws remained pure white. The next morning, the remaining monks awoke to find that all the cats had undergone the same transformation.In France, the Chartreux was once known as the monastery cat associated with Carthusian monks at the Grande Chartreuse monastery near Grenoble. The blue cats were believed to have originally come from Syria, brought to France in trade or by returning Crusaders in the Middle Ages. The cats mousing prowess is surely what gained him entrance to contemplative life, but undoubtedly his tranquil nature and love of solitude earned him a permanent home.

FORT MYERS & BONITA SPRINGS THE DIVA DIARIESIm melting! Melting! Oh, what a world! What a world!With apologies to Shakespeare, I say, Now is the summer of our discontent Ive lived in Southwest Florida since I was just a tween diva of 11, and every single summer I tell myself that Im going to somehow embrace this oppressive subtropical heat, and if not enjoy temperatures in the upper 90s (apparently some people do, bless their hearts), at least accept them and make peace with the fact that Im going to be miserably uncomfortable until at least Thanksgiving (or so). And, yet, each summer, I find myself shocked and amazed (again!) when I get into my car after a midday Publix shopping trip to find that my steering wheel is made of molten lava and I can only touch it with the dish rag that I keep on the passenger side of my car. I used to dream of inventing a makeup line that would be resistant to perspiration and not immediately melt off my face the second I stepped outdoors, but I now realize its hopeless. I no longer even bother telling my friends when I see globs of mascara liquefying in the corners of their eyes as the sun bears down on their pretty faces its like Ive given up. Even the very notion of putting on pants makes me laugh. How anyone can wear binding garments in this heat without fainting is beyond my comprehension. I can barely stand to wear a bra and were only a few days into July. Come August, if I suddenly vanish, check the walk-in freezers of local restaurants. Still, instead of whining about our Southwest Florida summers (see above), Ive decided to come up with ways to make the next few months of scorching feels like temps in the hundreds somehow seem more manageable. The Chillow! This cooling pillow is a delightful cooling pad that you fill with water for cool relief (check Amazon.com), theyre generally less than $15 I love mine. Elegant hand fans lets bring them back. Southern ladies in classic Tennessee Williams plays always look so genteel as they fan their pretty faces with pretty silk fans they keep in their purses (think Blanche DuBois). Plus, you can usually pick them up for cheap at World Market or Pier One Imports. Spritzers. Not white wine spritzers (although theyre helpful as well), but the little pump spritzers used to spray houseplants. Get a pursesized one and fill it with spring water and a drop of peppermint oil or eucalyptus oil. When youre so hot that youre losing your will to live, close your eyes and spritz your face. Dont worry about messing up your make-up; its already melting anyway. Make sure the A/C in your home and car are in working order. Im no appliance expert, but I can tell you that when your air conditioner dies in the middle of a 92-degree night, its often your own fault. Get those fluids checked, make sure your filters are fresh these arent the months to mess around with A/C maintenance. If my air conditioner goes out, you better believe Ill be at a hotel before you can say, Freon is your friend. The next five months are going to be long, but fret not were in this together and again, dont forget the wine spritzers (with plenty of ice and a fruit garnish). Ciao for now, my lovelies!

He acquired the skills necessary to operate and repair large machinery through the heavy equipment mechanics program at Immokalee Technical College, in partnership with The Immokalee Foundation.

A native of Immokalee, he now lives in Plant City and works at Ring Powers Lakeland location. At 24, he is a young adult who not only looks forward to going to work every day but also succeeds in that work, which is less a job and more a career.

After he graduated, TIF staff members knew his interests and encouraged him to enroll in the HEM program at Immokelee Technical College (iTECH). You learn to work on all kinds of equipment the whole machine, he says. After his first year, he learned even more on a 10-week internship with Ring Power. Internships and full-time employment are among the greatest benefits of the HEM program, says Elda Hernandez, TIF program services manager. The students are interviewed by more than 10 business partners for a 10-week paid summer internship or full-time employment. For Mr. Bustamante, both of those situations occurred. After his internship in Tampa, he returned to iTECH for the second year of the program. Then about a week before graduation, Ring Power called and wanted to hire me, he says. Julio Estrella had a job when he enrolled at iTECH. The HEM program helped him get a much better job. Mr. Estrella also had been a member of the FBA and TIFs Career Development program. During high school, he learned automotive repair and picked up skills as an electrician. But when he graduated in 2009, the economy was bleak and jobs were hard to find. I was helping my family by working at a convenience store then, he says. It was the only place hiring at the time. He never ventured far from TIF and its programs, though. He continued to volunteer, helping other TIF students and the staff members who guided him. Then in 2013, his adult mentors encouraged him to go back to iTECH for the two-year HEM program. Like Mr. Bustamante, he received scholarship help from the foundation. That financial help paid off for everyone involved. After graduation, Mr. Estrella was hired by Vulcan Materials Company the countrys largest provider of construction materials such as crushed stone, sand and gravel as a mobile maintenance mechanic, working mainly in Fort Myers but also at the companys Collier County location. I deal with everything from preventive maintenance to changing oil and doing routine inspections up to full repairs on haul trucks, loaders and dozers, he says. He lived all of his life in Immokalee, but the job gives him enough income so he and his wife, Tania, can live in Fort Myers. Things are definitely improved, he says. Its better pay, and I actually like what Im doing. While most of the students who participate in the TIF Career Development program do so with attending college as a goal, the same path is not necessarily right for everyone. The HEM curriculum a partnership between the foundation, iTECH and Caterpillar prepares students in two years for a career that is in demand and pays well. In class, students work on diesel engines, transmissions, buses and a motor grader. They learn to use web-based service software, order parts and create reports of service work accomplished. They earn certifications that qualify them for jobs and gain experience that all employers want but that is often hard to get otherwise. Instruction and practical work are included in the 1,800-hour, four-semester program of nine courses. TIF graduates also become role models for others. After graduation, many students voluntarily return to speak with TIF high school students to let them know anyone can be successful and follow their dreams without a college degree, Ms. Hernandez says. The Immokalee Foundation provides a range of education programs that focus on building pathways to success through college and post-secondary preparation and support, mentoring and tutoring, opportunities for broadening experiences and life skills development leading to economic independence.

In 2013, the Horizon Council Workforce Task Force recognized an emerging need to create awareness of what Southwest Florida has to offer the growing number of young professionals in the region. The council commissioned a study that found YPs who move to the area have a difficult time engaging with other YPs since information about events and activities was limited. The task force took on the challenge of developing a solution, working with community leaders and the YP audience to develop the new web portal. Guido Minaya, chair of the initiative, says representatives from Naples Young Professionals, the Bonita Springs Area Chamber of Commerce-Young Professionals and the Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce Leadership NEXT worked together to seek funding, secure a vendor and develop the portal. It was funded by Chicos FAS Inc., Lee Memorial Health System and a grant from the Southwest Florida Community Foundation. The portal was produced by Atilus, a web design and internet marketing company based in Bonita Springs and owned by young professionals. Atilus understands the goals of the group and was the best candidate to create this flexible communication tool, Mr. Minaya says. The YP portal offers quick and easy access to current and upcoming events and, most importantly, resources for housing, jobs, volunteering and more, he adds. Access the portal at ypswfl.com.

Probably a refrigerator or washing machine, right? Ill bet it will surprise most readers to know that GE doesnt even make these appliances any more, having sold this line of business to the Chinese company Haier in January. Even more interesting is that this sale wasnt even the biggest or most significant strategic move the company has undertaken in the last few years. In fact, I would argue that GE has undergone the most significant transformation of any large publicly traded corporation here in the U.S., which makes it a very interesting investment idea. GE made headlines recently when it became the first large company to escape the too big to fail designation by the U.S. government. Recall that after the financial crisis, the U.S. Financial Oversight Council was established to designate which banks and financial companies posed a risk to the general economy should they collapse. These companies were designated as systematically important and extremely strict capital requirements were placed on these financial companies. But why should an industrial company be lumped together with large banks like Citigroup and Bank of America? The answer is that under its previous CEO, Jack Welch, GE was as much as a bank as it was a manufacturing company.In 2011, almost 35 percent of GEs revenues came from its GE Capital division. The financial arm of the company had over $600 billion of assets on its balance sheet, ranging from credit card receivables to leases to construction loans. It was GE Capital that drove much of GEs earnings growth in the early 2000s as manufacturing slowed. After the financial meltdown, CEO Jeffrey Immelt decided that GE could not withstand the huge earnings volatility and risk of being in this line of business. He started to sell GE Capitals huge portfolio and return to its roots as an industrial innovator. It has sold everything from its auto fleet financing to online banking to commercial real estate divisions. In the last year alone, it has sold almost $200 billion worth of financial assets. The removal of the systematically important label on GE will benefit the company in two primary ways in the near future. First, it will allow GE to return more capital to shareholders. Many believe that management will soon announce an increase in dividends, higher share buybacks or both before the end of the year, which should also positively affect GEs stock price. Secondly, the company will have greater balance sheet flexibility going forward. Previously, the government mandated that GE keep a sizable capital reserve and restricted the amount of debt it could own. Now those restrictions are gone. This will free GE to pursue a major acquisition that can be funded by debt or take advantage of todays historically low interest rates to fund internal growth within the company. And fortunately for GE, there are many growth areas within the company to fund to offset the decline in financial revenue. GEs software business is becoming more and more a significant source of earnings. Its manufacturing division is also doing well with more orders for power turbines, jet engines and industrial equipment. And other areas within GE, like health care and oil and gas, are expected to ramp up in the years ahead as well. So it is this combination of higher growth as well as the potential for increased dividends and stock buybacks that make GE such an interesting investment. It is a rare occurrence when such a large company successfully transforms its business model in such a meaningful manner but it looks like GE is in the early stages of doing just that.

The Customer Lifetime Value is one of the most important and useful data points available to managers to improve their decisionmaking. The CLV is the net margin generated by the average customer over the length of the relationship with your company. Before we get into the weeds, lets look at the ways that knowing a companys CLV helps managers make better decisions. How much can I spend to acquire a new customer? Although this is a crucial question, many companies dont have an answer to it. The typical SME (small to mid-size business enterprise) spends about 70 percent of its marketing budget on getting new customers and 30 percent on programs for existing ones. Perhaps marketing executives think that advertising and other programs to attract new customers are more interesting and sexy, while motivating and keeping existing customers is boring. The 70/30 split is rarely justified by results. John Wanamakers famous comment, I know I waste half my advertising budget, but I dont know which half, needs a mathematical update. As part of this discussion its useful to calculate your present cost to acquire a new non-referred customer. Divide the total costs associated with seeking new customers by the number of new customers gained: You might need to catch your breath, sit down and have a drink. This calculation highlights that the least expensive way to gain a new customer is by a referral from an existing one. This is one reason why loyal customers are so valuable and why their CLV is so high: They supply the majority of referrals. Many managers think referrals just happen without effort on their part. This is true for maybe 30 percent of referrals; the other 70 percent of referrals are ones you have to earn. It is reasonable to assume a new customer will make a margin contribution similar to the CLV of your average customer. Clearly you SCORE has summer workshops The Naples chapter of SCORE has been helping local small businesses succeed for the past 30 years. Typically, SCORE averages about 30 new clients a month; this past April, however, brought 40 new clients, and in May the number jumped to 61. Heres whats ahead on the workshop schedule: Starting a Business in Collier County: What You Need to Know 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, July 16, at the Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce This seminar explores the personal and professional attributes needed to start a business. Then it looks at what you need to do to start a business, from the idea to the structure to the nancing. Presenter Greg Hunter is a high net worth relationship manager with PNC Wealth Management.

If the process you follow doesnt properly take federal regulations into account, or isnt quite as ef cient as youd like it to be, your business could be throwing money out the door whenever you open it to new employees. A human resources professional from Paychex will lead this free lunch-and-learn program.

FRIENDWhy loyal customers are so valuablewouldnt spend the entire CLV, but perhaps using 5-10 percent of it might be a useful guide to answer the question: How much can I spend to acquire one new customer? Market segmentation is the act of grouping customers with clear similarities into market segments that are relevant in the decision-making process. Obvious examples are sex, demographics, location and purchasing characteristics. The more information you collect about customers, the more effective and useful the segmentation process will be. The company-wide CLV is useful for measuring broad trends, but maximizing profitability and deciding where to apply resources makes market segmentation necessary. Knowing the CLVs of the segments allows comparisons between them and can help managers plan tactics for each one. This process is improved by conducting a Net Promoter Score survey (described in my column on June 16). This, for example, might show that segments with low CLVs also have a high proportion of detractors. My next article will explain how to calculate the CLV and show the value of retention and referral rates on the CLV and the difference in profitability between the average and the loyal customer.

I trace my roots back to a company founded in a garage in 1945 that initially sold picture frames and, later, dollhouse furniture. (Two of my founders were married, with children named Barbara and Ken.) My first big hit was the Uke-adoodle toy ukulele. I sold a lot of Mickey Mouse Club-branded items and was the first toy company to run TV commercials for children. Today my brands include Hot Wheels, American Girl, Fisher-Price, Monster High and Thomas & Friends. I employ about 31,000 people globally and rake in more than $5 billion annually. Who am I?Think you know the answer? Well announce it in next weeks edition.

Sorry, we cant provide individual financial advice. Would You Prefer Preferreds?If youre interested in dividend income, consider preferred stock. Like common stock, shares of preferred stock represent partial ownership of a company. Like bonds, they tend to have a fixed dividend. (Dividends paid from common stocks are often increased over time.) Preferred stock comes in many forms. Dividends from traditional preferred shares are usually taxed at the 15 percent rate like dividends from common stock. Hybrid versions, often called trust preferreds, are often taxed at higher rates. Some preferred shares are convertible into cash or common stock, according to the will of the investor, the company or a formula. Why would individual investors like preferred stock? Well, their dividends are typically higher than those of their commonstock counterparts. While the Standard & Poors 500 index often has an overall dividend yield of around 2 to 3 percent, and bonds tend to offer yields in the low to mid-single digits, preferred shares often sport yields in the high single digits. Heres another plus: In the event of corporate trouble such as bankruptcy, holders of preferred shares get to collect before holders of common stock. So while common stockholders often receive nothing if a company enters bankruptcy protection, preferred shareholders may end up with a few cents on the dollar. (Note that creditors take precedence over preferred stockholders, though.) There are downsides, too. As with bonds, when interest rates rise, preferred shares can become less valuable. Preferred shareholders generally have no voting privileges. Their shares can be converted into cash or common stock at inopportune times. And preferred shares generally dont appreciate in value as quickly as their common stock counterparts. Like bonds, preferred stocks are rated by credit agencies such as Standard & Poors and Moodys so if youre shopping for preferred stock, favor ones with investment grade ratings (such as BBB or better). Learn more about preferred stock if youre intrigued, but remember that many common stocks also offer solid yields.

Divided and ConqueredMy dumbest investment decision was allowing my husband to manage my money. We had a divide-and-conquer approach: He handled money, while I handled the kids, the household and vacations. He quit his job (without my agreement) and used my money to start his own business, while lying to me that he had investors. I guess it was too tempting, and I was not paying attention. Never again will anyone ever tell me how to invest my money.I have four kids who are on their way to college soon, and I am nearly wiped out retirement and all. I would have caught various mistakes he made, had I been watching the accounts. The lesson for wives, kids and anyone is: Know your investments, know your accounts and know your own money. M., onlineThe Fool Responds: Many couples split responsibilities, with only one of them managing the money. Thats a mistake, as the money-managing partner may not be very good at it or, like yours, may be mishandling funds intentionally. Its also bad because if the money-managing one dies (as often happens, because men generally handle finances and also have shorter life spans than women), the survivor may suddenly be struggling to learn where all the money is and how to manage it. Couples are best off when both parties know whats going on with their finances and make decisions jointly. A Branchless BankIf youre looking for a relatively small company with a good chance of strong stock-price appreciation, consider BofI Holding (Nasdaq: BOFI), an online-only bank. Its profitable and growing fast and partly due to disputed allegations of wrongdoing against it, seems like a bargain right now. The bank has more than tripled its revenue and earnings in four years, and its last quarter featured its loan portfolio growing by 30 percent, its deposits swelling by 38 percent and earnings growing by 54 percent driven in part by a partnership with H&R Block. Particularly impressive is its efficiency ratio, a key metric for banks, which was below 32 percent. (Low is good.) For comparison, U.S. Bancorps efficiency ratio last quarter was 55 percent, and that was an industry-leading number among big banks. The low ratio is due to the fact that BofI runs a branchless operation, giving it a low cost structure and allowing it to offer both higher interest rates on deposits and attractive financing terms. Regarding the allegations, management has said, We will address the multitudinous deficiencies with this frivolous lawsuit in court. It has also offered a close look at its relatively low-risk loan portfolio. With a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio recently below 10, BofIs shares should be of interest to long-term investors with some risk tolerance. (The Motley Fool owns shares of and has recommended BofI Holding.) I trace my roots back to 1886, when my founder bought a flooring business in Racine, Wisconsin, and developed a paste wax floor care product. I started offering paid vacations to employees in 1900, and in 1934, during the Great Depression, I established a pension plan. Im still known as a good place to work. I hired Frank Lloyd Wright to design some of my buildings. I generate about $10 billion in sales annually and employ about 13,000 people. My brands include Pledge, Duck, Oust, Mr. Muscle, Windex, Saran, Kiwi, Scrubbing Bubbles, Raid, OFF! and Ziploc. Who am I? (Answer: SC Johnson) Up and DownQWhy do stock prices rise and fall from day to day? A.K., Batavia, New YorkAA stocks price will, over the long run, reflect the value of the underlying company. As the company grows and becomes worth more, its stock is also worth more and vice versa. Over the short term, though, stocks can move due to many meaningful or meaningless reasons or no reason at all. Here are just some reasons a stock may move: new products or services, good or bad earnings reports, Wall Street upgrades or downgrades, valuable contracts landed or lost, management shakeups, big-name investors buying or selling shares, media coverage, other stocks in the same industry (or the overall stock market) rising or falling. And: lawsuits filed or won or lost, good or bad news regarding a competitor, the prospect of legislation affecting the companys future, changes in supply or demand for the companys offerings, rumors that the company might buy or be bought by another company, or simply people expecting big things because the industry is hot.Ignore short-term volatility and focus on your companies health, progress and long-term growth prospects.***QWhats an 8-K report? P.M., Grand Rapids, MichiganAIts a document the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) requires companies to file whenever certain special events have occurred since they last filed their comprehensive annual 10-K report. These events are ones that have a significant impact on a companys performance or financial health, such as mergers, layoffs, plant closings and court awards or penalties.

NOW PENDINGStudy shows owning benefits single men more than women REALTYTRACHomes owned by single men on average are valued 10 percent more and have appreciated $10,112 16 percent more since purchase than homes owned by single women, an analysis by RealtyTrac shows. The analysis covered more than 2.1 million single-family homes nationwide owned by either single men (1,139,493) or single women (1,011,572) based on public record tax assessor data collected by RealtyTrac. The average estimated current market value of homes owned by single men was $255,226 10 percent higher than the average current market value of homes owned by single women, which was $229,094. Homes owned by single men have gained an average of $63,921 since purchase, a 33 percent return on purchase price. That was $10,112 (16 percent) more than the average $53,809 gain since purchase for homes owned by single women, a 31 percent return on purchase price. Women earn less than men on average 19 percent less in 2015 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics giving them less purchasing power when it comes to buying a home, said Daren Blomquist, senior vice president at RealtyTrac, which released the report in late May. So its not surprising to see the 10 percent gender gap in average home values between single men and single women homeowners; however, the slower home price appreciation for homes owned by single women demonstrates that less purchasing power is also having on a domino effect on their ability to build wealth through homeownership as quickly as single men. Among homes owned for at least 15 years, those owned by single men This gulf-front, four-bedroom home offers watercolor sunsets and abundant privacy. From the dramatic foyer with spiral staircase to the stunning surrounds, everything is planned for exceptional living. The interior is radiant from plentiful natural light, and eight balconies provide perches to take in the expansive sights. Desirable details include an elevator, impact resistant doors and windows and a security system. The gated community of Hideaway Beach has two miles of pristine beaches, clubhouse, dining and many other resort-inspired amenities. Michelle Thomas of Premier Sothebys International Realty has the listing for $5,350,000.

C2 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY FLORIDA WRITERSA technological thriller thats a fun treat not to be missed Assassins Silence by Ward Larsen. Forge. 400 pages. Hardcover, $25.99.Reading this book was almost too much fun. There is so much pleasure to be had in the appreciation of a piece of writing that reaches such a high peak of control over its many interlocking fragments. Ward Larsens new technological thriller, the third installment of his David Slaton Series, is a masterful piece of plot construction and of balancing what is to be revealed and what withheld. Jammer Davis, the protagonist of another Larsen series, makes a delightful appearance, guiding the decisions of security agency heads who can barely tolerate his disdain for protocol. Strange things are happening in Malta. David Slaton, an ex-Mossad assassin thought to be dead in order to protect his wife and son, is in trouble. He finds himself encountering and eliminating the members of a team put together for the purpose of implementing a worldthreatening terrorist action. But some of them find him first. Meanwhile, in Brazil, a large, long out of use MD-10 transport plane has been sought, purchased and secretly outfitted for a special mission perhaps a one-time mission. It holds in its enormous cargo tanks a huge quantity of radioactive material. And it is headed to the Middle East. By shifting perspectives, locations, and expectations, the author keeps the reader guessing. Each new revelation about the planes mission, the terrorists motives, the execution plan, the characters responsibilities and the range of technological capabilities ups the suspense while raising new questions.In Langley, Va., a CIA team is trying to put the pieces together so that disaster can be forestalled and U.S. interests protected. Who lives in Virginia? David Slatons wife, Christine, and their young son. Who is involved in the CIA investigation? Jammer Daviss sometime girlfriend, special agent Sorensen. Jammers slow burn through the thick layer of bureaucracy and professional turf guarding is a treat not to be missed. Where else does Mr. Larsen take us, in scenes that follow Slatons movements? Beirut. Readers enter todays Beirut and also glimpse its history and centrality to Middle East dynamics. All of Mr. Wards settings are vividly described, as are the cultural and atmospheric flavors. This is true of Mdina, the tiny ancient capital of Malta surrounded by a more populous suburb, and also of the CIA offices in Virginia, the remote Brazilian airport and downtown Zurich. Never overwritten, these settings frame the ongoing character portraits and action in a way that gives credibility and force to each step and turning point. Assassins Silence is a series of journeys: relocations of David Slaton and other characters, and relocations of the readers imagination that fuel a relentless sense of movement and urgency. Something important is always at stake, and often enough it is Slatons life. Knowing how to get from point A to point B without being recognized and on schedule is an absolute requirement. Such abilities are part of the tradecraft that go into the making of Mr. Larsens mysterious assassin. He must have a plan and the means to execute it. He must be able to improvise if things dont go well. He most know how to select the best vantage points to see what he needs to see often without being noticed. Choosing a seat in a public square is not a trivial matter. Slaton most know where nearby doors lead, whats behind them and whether they are likely to be locked or blocked. He must be one or two steps ahead of those for whom he is a target. He must have the best weapons and other equipment for the task at hand. Mr. Larsen takes us through Slatons mental preparations in abundant, intriguing detail. He also explores Slatons life of self-imposed loneliness in a highly effective manner. In Assassins Silence, Ward Larsen is on top of his game.About the authorUSA Today bestselling author Ward Larsen is a three-time winner of the Florida Book Award. His first thriller, The Perfect Assassin, is being adapted into a major motion picture by Amber Entertainment. A former U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, Mr. Larsen flew more than 20 missions in Operation Desert Storm. He has also served as a federal law enforcement officer and airline captain, and is a trained aircraft accident investigator. He lives in the Sarasota area. Phil Jason, Ph.D., United States Naval Academy professor emeritus of English, is a poet, critic and freelance writer with 20 books to his credit, including several studies of war literature and a creative writing text. philJASONphiljreviews@gmail.com Larsen

C4 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLYI dream of them, the artist says of her images. Ive got a very vivid imagination, I guess. She refers to her photographs as vomiting from my brain. Ms. Bridgers work is well known in Southwest Florida. Shes been featured in Naples Illustrated, Gulf + Main and was one of Gulfshore Life magazines 2015 40 Under 40 Award recipients. And now a collection of her surreal images can be seen in #unexpected, an exhibit at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center in downtown Fort Myers. Ms. Bridger will discuss her work during a closing party for the exhibit from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, July 26. The photographs are indeed unexpected; the show is a journey through Ms. Bridgers funhouse brain and imagination. I dont know how Mila does it, but her mind is so wildly open to new ideas. She is inspired daily by things, says friend and fan Annette Trossbach, founder and producing artistic director of Laboratory Theater of Florida. To be an artist, so often, is to be a vessel, just to let the ideas flow. But when youve got bills to pay and a fridge to stock and checkbooks to balance, it can be tough not to get caught up in mundane, concrete, material things. Last season, Ms. Bridger shot nude portraits of the cast of Lab Theaters Calendar Girls, a group of women in their 40s to just-on-the-cusp of 80. Just like the characters they portrayed in the play, the local actors posed for a calendar, their private parts cleverly covered by items such as giant cupcakes and broccoli. Ms. Bridger donated her time and talent, and the calendars were sold to raise money for Partners for Breast Cancer Care. The girls were amazing. It was so much fun, she says about the calendar project. They were raising money, so that was beautiful.Always outside the boxThe word conventional does not seem to be in Ms. Bridgers vocabulary. Her portraits are fresh, unusual, something out of a fantasy or a dream. For example, she painted two legs of her sofa blue. It looked so good she decided to paint half her apartment cobalt blue as well, including all the furniture. That part of her apartment works as a backdrop for an on-going series of portraits of creative people dancers, writers, painters who call Southwest Florida home. I try to bring their personality and what they do to the photo, she says. I always try to shoot them in a little surreal setting, but always showing who they are. One portrait of fashion designer and painter Mariapia Malerba shows the woman dressed in flowing white against a blue background. She is amazing when it comes to designing clothes, Ms. Bridger says. When I have my crazy ideas, I know who to ask. For example, she asked for Ms. Malerbas help when she made a portrait of a woman who writes the annual Naples Scout Guide. I wanted the woman to wear a dress made up of her books, she says, so she asked Ms. Malerba to create a long giant skirt and top out of the guides pages. Its this out-of-the-box thinking that makes Ms. Bridgers photographs so visually compelling. Her self-portrait promoting #unexpected shows her wearing a sweater with the image of a Boston terrier on the front. Ms. Bridgers long blonde hair is combed forward, wrapping and swirling around her face, covering all her features Sia-like. I dont like showing my face, she says.Early beginningsMs. Bridger began taking photographs when she was a young girl growing up in Poland. Her father, a nuclear physicist, took photos as a hobby, and her mother was in charge of the modern art section of the Museum Okregowe in Koszalin. But it was her grandfather, she says, who gave her her first camera and built her a darkroom. I didnt know anything about chemicals, so my mother signed me up for (photography) classes, she says. And thats where my love of photography started. She still takes black-and-white photographs with the 35-mm camera her grandfather gave her, but just as a hobby. Professionally, she now uses a medium-format digital camera. She visited the U.S. for the first time in 2001, and then came to stay in 2010. She loves Florida, especially Florida in the summer. Ive always loved the warm weather, she says. Thats what makes me happy. I like the sun. I lived in Canada, I lived in Poland, I always suffered from the cold. I love summer. I love living and working where its warm. MILAFrom page 1 A portrait of hairstylist Shari Brousseau. Mila Bridger doesnt like to show her face in her self-portraits.

She calls it her Domesticated series. Im not domesticated at all. Thats the irony of that, she says. I am so not domesticated. If you come to my apartment and you open my oven, you find books there. I just utilize space in the kitchen. I dont cook, I have no idea how to do that. I have issues in the kitchen. The kitchen is such a surreal place for me. I dont treat (it) as a cooking space. Instead, its where she and her friends sit and drink wine. Or, its another place to take photos and get creative, she says. I dont treat my kitchen as most people do.My friends will come and open the fridge and start throwing out the food, she says. Its fuzzy and yellow and green and fun colors. I call it vintage food. Seeing all those colors and textures set off the creative synapses in her brain, setting off an idea for a new series. Photographs of 10-month-old food thats coming, she promises. Thats still in my head.One image in the Domesticated series shows Ms. Bridger seated inside the refrigerator, reading a book, a glass of wine in one hand and a number of empty wine bottles on the floor. Another shows her kneeling on her kitchen floor, her head in the oven. In the third, she perches in the sink, mischieviously licking a dish. When you look at the photos, you think, what the hell is domesticated?, she says. Who puts their head in the oven and just sits there? And who sits in the sink?Thats the best thing of being an adult: I can just do it.

C10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY REVIEWFrom page 1 Catch Me If You Can>> Who: The Naples Players >> When: Through July 31 >> Where: The Sugden Community Theatre >> Cost: $40 ($10 for students 21 and younger) >> Info: 263-7990 or naplesplayers.org talking occasionally cheering at the end of a song or giving encouragement middance. This was full-fledged screaming, earsplitting solid walls of painful sound, as if a group of horror movie scream queens were all gathered in a small space and asked to scream as loud and as long as they could. It was the type of screaming that drowned out The Beatles when they performed, so no one could hear them sing. The screams seemed to have no rhyme or reason. This group screamed when the lights in the theater dimmed. They screamed when a secondary character walked onstage. They screamed when someone walked off. They screamed as least a dozen times throughout the first song alone. I was hoping they would calm down and allow the rest of us to pay attention to the show, but no deal. It was ludicrous. Despite numerous patron complaints to the ushers at intermission, the screaming went on. When an usher walked on stage before the second act, I thought she would make an announcement to the audience. But she didnt. And the screaming continued for the rest of the show. It seemed like the small group doing all the screaming had no idea how to act in a theater. Maybe they thought they were encouraging their friends onstage, but what they were really doing was distracting and irritating the rest of the audience. When I hear reactions that are all out of proportion to whats actually happening on stage, it doesnt make me like the actors more. In some cases, it makes me wonder: Why are they screaming for him? Hes not that great. The screaming, I confess, makes it very difficult to review this musical: Not only was it a constant interruption, but it also drowned out parts of lyrics and dialogue. I was beginning to think the show should be named Hear Me If You Can instead. Catch Me If You Can is based on the motion picture of the same name, which was based on the autobiography of Frank Abagnale Jr., a con man and fraud. As a teenager, Frank (Jacob Hartman) leaves home and survives by writing bad checks and impersonating an airline pilot, a doctor and a lawyer. Hes learned his sly ways from his father, Frank Abagnale Sr. (Paul Graffy), who says to his son, People only believe what you tell them. Its all a dance. Frank Sr. buys his boy a Botany 500 pinstripe suit, and the two sing and dance in The Pinstripes Are All That They See. If you dress the part and act confident, people will believe youre who you say you are, father and son believe. Mr. Graffy plays Frank Sr. as dashing and debonair, but his lifes falling apart: Hes under investigation from the IRS, and his best friend is sleeping with his wife. It all comes crashing down on him, as he drinks himself to an early grave. A Naples Players favorite whos been with them for 15 years, Mr. Graffy plays this downward arc well, but still manages to keep his character likeable. Mr. Hartman is a little more difficult to believe. He looks so young, though his character has learned to deflect that by saying, I get that a lot. He acts with confidence, but more charm and charisma would make him a believable con man. Its difficult to understand how people are actually taken in by him. His best moment comes at the end when he sings Goodbye. Its Mr. Hartmans best vocal. Perhaps he was singing like that for the entire show, but it was impossible to hear over the screaming. Dave Gipson seems miscast as Frank Jr.s nemesis, FBI Agent Carl Hanratty. He fumbled his lines at times and came across like a combination of John Goodman and the Blues Brothers. He didnt seem comfortable spouting some of the musicals clever lines (book by Terrence McNally). The musical opens with Frank Jr. being nabbed by Agent Hanratty. Where can it go from there, you may wonder. Well, Frank Jr. tells his life story, but he does it in the format of television shows and big dance numbers. Its set in the 1960s, so we get a Phil Spector Christmas number, a Mitch Miller-led (Our) Family Tree, a buddy duet a la Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. (Stuck Together). With lyrics by Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman (and music by Mr. Shaiman), the musical numbers are often big productions similar to those seen on The Ed Sullivan Show or The Carol Burnett Show. Katie Raleigh, as Paula, Frank Sr.s wife, has an elegant number gracefully dancing with three men in tuxedos in Dont Be a Stranger. Theres even a musical commercial, A Word From Our Sponsors, featuring three young women dressed (in rented costumes) as Elmers Glue, black indian ink and a Swiss army knife: the three things Frank Jr. uses to make his false IDs. The ensemble dances like theyre on Shindig! These incredible dance numbers should come as no surprise, as Catch Me If You Can is another production from wifeand-husband team Dawn Lebrecht Fornara as director/choreographer and Charles Fornara as musical director. The 12-piece Frank Abagnale Jr. Orchestra sounds totally professional. But the real discovery of the show is 17-year-old Molly Spiroff as Frank Jr.s love interest, Brenda Strong. Talented and mature beyond her years, her gospeltinged number Fly, Fly Away is one of the best numbers of the show, reminiscent of Dusty Springfield. The costumes and wigs are straight out of the s, thanks to costume designer Dot Auchmoody and Mark Vanagas, respectively. (Though a sneaker in an essential scene looked more appropriate for a later decade.) Catch Me If You Can is an innovative musical, and this production boasts spectacular dance numbers. But my experience of the show was marred by a group of people who didnt know how to act in a theater, and theater personnel who failed to fix the problem. Its horrible to sit in an audience thats listless and unresponsive, but the opposite extreme is just as bad. COURTESY PHOTOS The Jet Set Girls.

Consider this case where the defense starts off with two rounds of diamonds. South ruffs and would like to take two heart finesses, as well as lead a club toward his king. But since he has only two entries to dummy to attempt these three plays, South has a logistical problem to solve. The best way to proceed is to lead a trump to the king at trick three and return a low heart, finessing the jack after East follows low. West takes the queen and can do no better than return a diamond. South ruffs, crosses to dummy with a trump and leads the ten of hearts, finessing again after East plays low. This is declarers second lead from dummy, and when the finesse succeeds, he discontinues hearts and leads a club to the king. Since East, as expected, has the ace, South accomplishes his mission; his only losers prove to be a heart, a diamond and a club. Note that if East covers the ten of hearts with the king on the second round of the suit, South can then return to dummy's nine to make the crucial club lead toward the king. Note also that if South starts playing the hearts by leading the ten from dummy, instead of the deuce, he later runs into a dead end. The next time he gets to dummy with a trump, he can lead a heart or a club but he can't do both, and, as a result, he will finish down one.

Although it has the makings of a taut espionage thriller, it disappoints on almost all levels. Based on the novel of the same name by John Le Carre. Rated R.De Palma (Brian De Palma) Filmmaker Brian De Palma discusses his approach to filmmaking and shares anecdotes from all of his movies (Carrie, Scarface, The Untouchables, Mission: Impossible). Film geeks will love it, but it might not be accessible to a mainstream audience. Rated R. Finding 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.

NoAmong director Steven Spielbergs finer filmmaking gifts is his uncanny ability to capture the imagination of the little ones sitting in the theater. This is especially important with The BFG because the film does so little to capture the imagination of adults. Yet children who attend the film, which is based on the Roald Dahl book of the same name, will find it enticing if for no other reason than because theres a 24-foottall old man helping the 10-year-old heroine at the storys center. That heroine is Sophie (Ruby Barnhill), an orphan in London who likes to read (shes fittingly working on Dickens Nicholas Nickleby at the moment) and has trouble sleeping. As the story begins, shes kidnapped from her second-story dwelling by a Big Friendly Giant (the BFG) who takes her to giant country, where all the locals but him eat humans. The BFG (Mark Rylance) pledges to protect her, which is the least he can do given that he brought her there. At this point the films perspective and tone are prominent: Logically speaking, a little girl taken from her home and forced to live in a foreign land in which shes constantly in danger should be horrifying. But in Mr. Spielbergs hands, theres lightness to the story that makes it all seem okay; Miss Barnhills bravado performance, coupled with Mr. Rylances gentility as the giant, also helps. You will ask: If shes in danger in giant country and the BFG wants to help, why doesnt he just take her back to London? He tries, but Sophie is such a young snapper whipper (as the BFG calls her in one of the many idioms he flubs) that she insists on helping him get back at the giant bullies who pick on him. It lacks narrative thrust and the characters are under developed, but visually the film is stellar. For two-thirds of the movie, Miss Barnhill is the only actor we see in true flesh and blood; the giants (played by Bill Hader, Rafe Spall and Jemaine Clement, in addition to Rylance) are rendered via motion capture, a process by which the actors motions are recorded and then a character is created using computer-generated imagery. The production design by Rick Carter, coupled with the visual effects work, creates an awe-inspiring picture that maintains its scale and never ceases to impress. If youre going to see The BFG, make sure you see it in 3D to enjoy its full effect. Though Mr. Spielberg might insist otherwise, clearly The BFG isnt for adults. Its too cheesy, simple and dull to capture a mature crowd. However, it might connect with its target audience of those 12 and younger given the wow factor of the visuals and having a little girl as the main character. Note this, though: The children at my screening seemed engaged but occasionally confused as the story progressed (I know they were confused because they incessantly asked questions to their parents) and confusion is never something you want in a movie meant for kids. dan HUDAKpunchdrunkmovies.com >> Screenwriter Melissa Mathison, who also wrote E.T. (1982), died in November 2015 while The BFG the lm was in production.

CELEBRITY EXTRALucifer star back with second season BY CINDY ELAVSKYQ: My husband and I are fans of Lucifer on Fox. It has wonderful, evolving characters, with just the right balance of comedy and drama, and its thought-provoking. Can you tell us about Tom Ellis? And will there be a second season? Jane M., Lakewood, N.J.A: Until about 2013, Welsh actor Tom Ellis, 37, was known primarily for his work across the Pond. He was best known for Eastenders, The Catherine Tate Show and Miranda. Here in the states, he played Robin Hood in Once Upon a Time and Dr. William Rush in USA networks Rush, and now he holds the title role in Foxs Lucifer, which will be back for its second season on Sept. 19. When we last saw Lucifer, he was lamenting the escape of Mom from hell. Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) will play the role of the devils mother, Charlotte. The official word from Fox about Lucifers mommy issues: Trapped in hell for thousands of years by God (her ex-husband), the Mother of Angels is now free on Earth. Everything that fascinates Lucifer about people repels Mom a disdain thats highlighted by that fact that Moms trapped in a human body for her stay on Earth. Lucifers desperate to find out what Moms up to, but she claims that all she wants is to spend time with her sons again. Q: I adore the IFC mockumentary series Documentary Now! with Bill Hader and Fred Armisen. Ive watched season one many times already, and it never fails to make me laugh. Will there be another season? Samuel D., via emailA: Documentary Now! happens to be one of my favorite comedies, and I am happy to report that it will indeed be back in September with a seven-episode season two. Of the announced episodes so far, first we have The Bunker, which uses the 1993 political documentary The War Room with James Carville and George Stephanopoulos to skewer the insane world of s politics. Next is Juan Likes Rice and Chicken, which is a satirical take on the charming 2011 documentary Jiro Dreams of Sushi. Then theres Globesmen, which is a parody of the 1968 Maysles brothers documentary Salesman, which followed a wearied quartet of door-to-door Bible salesmen. And finally, inspired by the groundbreaking 1984 Talking Heads concert documentary Stop Making Sense, the two-part Test Pattern features an eponymous hit band (Armisen, Hader and guest star Maya Rudolph) performing a riveting, high-energy final concert to an eager audience of fans.

Rauschenberg Gallery hosts avant-garde composer July 9Italian composer and visual artist Philip Corner performs Metal Meditations at 1 p.m. Saturday, July 9, in the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at Florida SouthWestern State College-Fort Myers. The performance coincides with the gallerys current exhibition, Glenn Branca & Philip Corner re:Sound, featuring graphic and musical scores, harmonic series drawings and custom-built instruments from both artists. This immersive installation highlights two of the most influential avant-garde composer-performers alive today, Gallery Director Jade Dellinger says about the show, which remains in place through Aug. 13. Both are exploring the visualization of sound. Mr. Brancas 1985 drawings investigating the mathematics of harmonics are on display along with some of Mr. Corners site-specific pieces inviting guest participation. Fifty of Mr. Corners original drawings (1973-1976), forming the score of his piece Metal Meditations, are also on exhibited for the first time anywhere in the world. A founding member of the Fluxus group (which included Yoko Ono, John Lennon and others), Mr. Corner is wellknown for Piano Activities, his controversial 1962 performance art piece that resulted in the destruction of a piano on live television. His relationships with the gallerys namesake Bob Rauschenberg and artist John Cage spanned decades. Mr. Branca, a New York-based musician who invented the Harmonics Guitar, was a founder of the No Wave movement with his bands The Static and Theoretical Girls in the late 1970s. He has released more than 15 full-length albums and collaborated with numerous musical groups, including the band Sonic Youth. Mr. Corners performance in the gallery will be with collaborator and noted choreographer Phoebe Neville. Mr. Rauschenbergs former band Sonic Combine will open the afternoon and provide support throughout his performance. The gallery will release other exhibit-specific performances later this summer. Events at the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at FSW are free and open to the public. Regular gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturay.

NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2016 C25 THE DISH The Dish: Two-course lunch special The Place: FISH In the Village on Venetian Bay 4360 Gulf Shore Blvd. N. The Price: $12.95 The Full Menu: fishrestaurantnaples.com The Details: When dining at a place called FISH, I would normally order a seafood dish of some kind. And the menu certainly did offer several tempting choices (a lobster roll, a grilled tuna burger, a soft-shell crab BLT and fish tacos among them). The one-plate/two-course lunch special had some seafood offerings (shrimp poor boy, tempura fish roll and fish and chips) as well, but it was the chunky egg salad sandwich under the specials that spoke to me on this day. It came with a choice of tomato salad, garden salad or soup of the day. I opted for the tomato salad. I dont think even a slice of pickle would have fit on the plate that arrived within minutes. A generous scoop of egg salad eggs and mayo, plain and simple, just the way I like it along with a slice of tomato and shredded lettuce filled the bun to overflowing. The tomato salad filled a soup bowl and was delicious. And a pile of house made potato chips was just icing on the cake. One More Thing: The one-plate/ two-course lunch specials are offered daily from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The full menu is also available and has everything from shrimp cocktail and calamari to a variety of flatbreads and several salads, sandwiches and pasta dishes.

C26 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY VINO Making the case for wine shopping at CostcoBy now, everybody probably knows that Costco is the largest wine retailer in America. The buying power of this big box store is enormous, enabling them to negotiate the most favorable prices from distributors and directly from wineries. In fact, a friend of mine who works for a major wine and spirits distributor often tells me that Costcos retail wine prices are lower than his wholesale costs. A normal display in the Costco wine department goes on forever and consists of pallets holding, on average, 56 cases each. And that doesnt count the finer wine thats displayed in wooden boxes. Some of the wine is fairly low-end, popular-brand stuff that sells for less than $10 a bottle. But that doesnt mean its all bad. For example, the Columbia Crest Grand Estates Cabernet Sauvignon is delicious and costs less than $8 a bottle. Id serve it at any party and also to my geekiest wine friends. So the selection is tremendous, but the problem is that Costco isnt a wine store its a warehouse store. And while you can always ask an employee to steer you to the laundry detergent aisle, finding someone in the wine department who can answer your questions or make intelligent recommendations is only a sometime thing. They do have people on the floor occasionally, but not every minute of every day. Make no mistake: Costco is a great place to buy wine, but it helps to know what youre looking for. On the other hand, if youre not really sure what you want, the prices are reasonable enough that you can afford to pick up a bottle or two of something new to take home and try. If you like it, go back soon to buy more, because it might not be there anymore if you wait too long. Of course, just like any wine department, the price tags display critics point ratings (when theyre available). So if you trust the opinion of writers from Wine Spectator and other publications, thats a bit of guidance. But there are two problems with that. First, sometimes the vintage thats rated is not the vintage on the shelf. So if the tag says 013 Vintage 92 Points and the bin is full of the 2014, its not much help. And second, one persons 90-point wine is anothers 85-point wine, which means ratings can be a bit of a guess. One more thing about Costco: The inventory isnt consistent; Costco often stocks certain wines on an everyday basis, but many others come and go. Still, theres more good news than bad at Costco. As mentioned earlier, the prices are very competitive, and theres an enormous selection of good wines for everyday enjoyment. Ive recently become aware of wines in Costco from a company called Orvino Imports. They are very interesting, and as far as I can tell, theyre also dependable in quality and available on a consistent basis. Ask the Wine WhispererQ: I see people tilting their wine glass to the side and staring at the color. Why do they do that? And what can looking at the color tell me about a wine? Tony B., Port CharlotteA: The first thing we do at a professional tasting is look at the color of the wine. Tilting the glass slightly to the side allows light to come through and shows the color around the edges. We look for clarity, to be sure the wine is bright and fresh. Translucence tells us the body of the wine. If we can see through it easily, it will be light on the palate; if a red wine is inky black, we can expect a full-bodied wine. We can also tell the age of a wine by the color. White wines gain color as they age, becoming browner or more golden; red wines lose color, turning dull red, like a brick.

CUISINE REVIEWMoura Bistro attracts diners hungry for flavorful Lebanese fareIf there were any question that Naples craved a Lebanese restaurant, just take a look at the crowds flocking to Moura Bistro. Scheduled to open in October but, because of construction and permitting issues, delayed until June and then nearly derailed yet again by a brief legal skirmish with the landlord (which appears now to be resolved), the cozy little bistro is up and running, dishing up fresh, traditional fare as fast as the kitchen and service staff can make it happen. Owner Nabil Bassil is delighted and amazed by the number of people who have come to try his hummus and falafel, shawarma, kafta and kabobs. Since opening in early June, no matter how much food the kitchen staff prepares each day, they seem to run out before the restaurant closes. I have nothing from yesterday and nothing for tomorrow, the hospitable owner told us when he stopped to chat (as we saw him do at tables throughout the bistro all evening). Everything is fresh. This is my promise to my mother (Maura, for whom the restaurant is named). These are her recipes. If you take a look at the restaurants website you are likely to see a lot of Lebanese dishes that are apt to excite you. Be forewarned that not all of them are on the menu yet, however. Wisely, Mr. Bassil is ramping up gradually, adding in dishes as the kitchen begins to run more smoothly and he figures out just what sort of volume he can expect on a given night. On a recent Saturday, we arrived before 6 p.m. and the gracious hostess met us at the door and asked if we had reservations. When we said no, she said there would be a wait of about 15 minutes. It turned out to be about half that, but by 7 p.m., there were close to 20 people lined up eagerly awaiting tables. The dining room is small but cheerful, the sunny yellow walls decorated with photos of Lebanon. Theres an open kitchen where large slabs of meat are visible cooking on vertical spits. Tables are somewhat close together, but the convivial nature of the restaurant encourages conversation between tables. We wound up exchanging cards with our neighbors and will likely meet them for another dinner soon. Starters of spinach pie ($8) and baba ghannooj ($8) arrived swiftly. The four golden brown triangular spinach pies were clearly homemade and fresh tasting. Likewise, the baba ghannooj, a classic Mediterranean eggplant dip, had a requisite smoky and well-seasoned flavor. It was topped with olive oil and served with pita, which was packaged in little plastic bags. Although the bags seemed a bit out of place, I assume they are used to portion them out and deliver them quickly. From the entrees available, we enjoyed the shawarma chicken ($19) and the falafel platter ($17). Both plates looked beautiful and bountiful. The falafel were hot, crisp and accompanied by creamy tahini, a salad, garlic roasted potatoes, rice and bright pink pickled turnips. While we both thought the falafel ground chickpeas that are seasoned then fried into crisp balls were a little dry, the tahini added moisture and flavor. The potatoes had just enough garlic and the salad was fresh and crunchy, a pleasant counterpoint to the hot items. My shawarma platter contained a generous amount of grilled chicken. It, too, was a bit dry, but it came with what tasted like spicy mayonnaise that was delicious with the smoky flavor of the meat and the moist rice. A salad with ripe tomatoes and fresh lettuce accompanied this dish, too. Neither of us was able to finish everything on our plates. We did manage to save room to split a piece of baklava ($6). Mouras version stood out because it wasnt inundated in honey. You could taste the honey and it added moisture, but there wasnt so much that it drowned out the flavor of the delicate pastry and nuts. It was the best Ive tasted in a long time. Just as our dessert was delivered, music began to play and a stunning belly dancer with hair that streamed well below her waist began undulating in a beautiful blue sequined top and streaming skirt. The crowd clapped and cheered as she energetically shimmied through the room. Mr. Bassil says he will offer belly dancing on Fridays and Saturdays, so reservations are especially recommended on those evenings. He also says that anyone who wants to dine on raw kibbeh, a Lebanese specialty, need only call a day in advance to let him know and he will happily prepare it. Cooked kibbeh balls are available as a starter, but the raw version a mix of lamb or beef with bulghur and spices must be made fresh, and he doesnt want to make it unless he knows someone will be eating it that day. Service was good overall, although our server was a bit hard-pressed to attend to us toward the end when the place filled up. But that was OK. We were full and happy to watch the belly dancer while we waited to pay our bill.

D2 GULF COAST HOMES WEEK OF JULY 7-13, 2016 www.FloridaWeekly.com NAPLES FLORIDA WEEKLY 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 KaleaBay.com. Kalea Bay residences have open floor plans with 9-foot high ceilings. All master bedrooms offer views of the Gulf of Mexico.
